Soviet professor talks
on modern lifestyles
By April Draughn
Staff Writer
"Our country is now corning
back to its active political life" Dr.
Nikita Pokrovsky stated in his
lecture titled "The Impact of Per-
estroika on the Lifestyles of the
Soviet People" held March lo at
1:30 p.m. in Room 1028 of the
General Classroom Building. The
lecture was centered around the
life styles and living conditions of
the Soviet people.
Pokrovsky stressed two main
points in his discussion on the
developments in the Soviet Union
since Perestroika was put into ef-
fect. He talked of the intellectual
innovations and movements that
Perestroika has spurred and the
problems o( the economy in terms
of daily life in the Soviet 1 Inion
In reference to the movements
among the Soviet people,
Pokrov sky talked ol Russian iden-
tity and how "We Russian people
want a better material life, a life
st vie comparable to American life "
According to Pokrovsky, the So
viet mentality is focused on values
it family life and devotion to the
family. IIu-m- values are more im
portant to the Soviet people in-
stead ol "a nil c banking account
or apartment
In relation to the spiritual val-
uesoi theSoviet people, Pokrovsky
said that for the hrst time since
1917 the Soviet Union is open up
to religion and church orthodoxy.
1 Eesaid, 1 hepixx ess has positive
as well as negative features
Pokrovsky also stressed that
there can't be a rebirth of religions
in society without separation of
church and state. According to
Pokrovskv, the concession ot sepa-
ration of church and state is writ-
ten in theSoviet constitution "but
in reality, certain problems of
Marxist philosophy in the Soviet
Union have resulted in a religious
vacuum Pokrovsky said that
some parry officials believe that
the vacuum .m k- tilled bv Rus-
sian religion in order to raise the
social consciousnessol the people.
In terms of the Soviet econ-
omy, Pokrovskv said that there

Overcoming fear and hate
Americans are no longer tolerating
hate groups such as the Ku Klu Klan, Skin-
heads and Nazis. Many argue that these
people havethe right to assemble and dem-
onstrate just like other groups and organi-
zations. Although this may be true as guar-
anteed by the U.S. Constitution, it totally
defies all that is morally and ethically right.
This past weekend the KKK marched
through High Point and Thomasville in an
attempt to recruit new members. Instead of
support, the group of bO klansmen received
oppostion from over 600 protesters It's en-
couraging to know that more people are
becoming aware that no room exists m ovir

Heterosexual AIDS:
A new perspective (part 2)
By Nathaniel Mead
l ditorial Columnist
Sir e 1988, doctors and pub
ic health offk ials have expressed
trong concern that teenagcrsand
oung adults represent a popula
ion in reasingly at risk for All,s
ecause there can be as much as
len years between the time of in
lection and the onset of illness,
mam of the twenty-year-olds
probably were infected as teen-
agers. And in this modern age of
noncommittal sexual relations
of widespread skepticism about
monogamy and ambivalence to-
ward condom use the possibil-
it tor HIV silently spreading
among younger people is most
worrisome. According to a large
1989 study ol students visiting the
infirmaries ol US. college cam-
puses, at least 1 out ol every 500
college students may already be
infec ted.
Unfortunately, the federal
government's ambitious new
AIDS education ettort is unlikely
to change the risky sexual behav-
ior of many young adults. I he
main reason, according to research
coordinated by psychiatrist Ste-
ven Keller at the I niversitv of
Medicine and Dentistry in New-
ark 1 is that most young people
simply refuse to use a condom or
to refrain from the occasional, cas-
ual fling. Sexually abstinent young
people,sa) S Keller. know no more
and no less about All 6 than those
who are sexually active. In short.
despite ail the AIDS information
presented in school and on televi
sum. education about transmis-
sion has been ineffectual.
Interestingly, about one-third
of the 102 people (ages 12-25) in-
terviewed by Keller admitted to
periodic bouts ol severe depres-
sion. Indeed, 2 percent were
depressed when the interview
hxik place' Keller suggests that
depression may interfere with the
willingness to change sexual ac-
tivities. This is also of interest
because depression itself is known
to lower one's immunity to all
kindsofdisease causing microbes
including the AIDS virus.

sexuals and intravenous drug

young adult heterosexuals sug-
gests striking similarities with
adult homosexuals says Martha
Cottrell,M.D who has just moved
to North Carolina after serving 18
vears as director of Student Health
at New V ork's Fashion Institute of
rechnology. "These similarities
may reflect a tendency or general
trend toward a depression of the
immune systems of young Ameri-
cans: It merits serious attention
Every issue has two sides,
however, and with AIDS the situ-
ation is no different. The fact that
the onset of AIDS is slower among
teenagers ONew York Times, April
3, 1988), indicates that a healthy
immune system what Cottrell
and other physicians call "im-
mune-competence"�plays a key
role in thwarting the AIDS disease
process. The key is knowing how
to keep the immune system young

patients to consider not only how
the virus is transmitted, but the
behaviors which protect them
from the disease process itself it

Having counseled hundreds
oi people with AIDS, Cottrell
seems certainthat the process of
AIDS may begin long before the
so-called AIDS virus (HIV, or
Human Immunodeficiency Virus)

Americans become more socially

usually additional use of recrea-

To the Editor
chair responds
to criticism of
computer lab
Dear Editor:
This letter is in response to the
letter of Susan Terrell regarding
her experience in the Business
Computer Lab. Please do not
equate the Business Computer I .ab
with the Decision Sciences Depart-
ment. The Decision Sciences De-
partment does not operate nor is it
responsible for the Business Com-
puter Lab Consequently, we were
saddened by her condemnation of
the Decision Sciences Department.
I have no knowledge of her
call to complain about the service
she received. I wish to assure her
and all students in the University
that faculty and administrators are
interested in their concerns and
complaints. 1 have taught at or
was a student at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
Wake Forest University, Temple
University, the University of
Maryland, the University of Wis-
consin, and Southern Illinois. Of
these seven fine universities only
Wake Forest comes close to the
level of commitment to under-
graduate education found at East
Carolina University. Indeed, ECU
was ranked 2nd nationally by
CPEA in alumni giving. It we have
attained this level of support, we
must be satisfying students.
1 encourage all students to
register their complaints and ton
cerns with the appropriate individ
ual if it relates to a course, talk
with your instructor. If that proves
unsatisfactory or undesirable, talk
with the next highest responsible
individual. The Departmental sec-
retary should be able to identify
the next highest responsible indi-
vidual. Please do not complain to
secretaries. They may be able to
schedule an appointment to see
the responsible individual for you,
but they are not responsible for
complaints. Complaints help us
pinpoint problem areas. Please
come prepared with specifics.
As chairman of a department
whose coursework relies on the
Computer Lab, I am well aware of
the frustrations and difficulties
posed when learning and grades
are affected by your experiences in
the lab. Indeed, the Decision Sci-
ences Department has placed two
graduate assistants in the lab to
offer special help to students in
Decision Sciences' courses. These
assistants are assigned to the de-
partment for use by faculty. The
faculty's willingness to forgo this
resource in order to help students
is an indication of their commit-
ment to students.
Finally, it should be recog-
nized that the University records
show no evidence that Susan
Terrell is or has been an ECU
student. The nature and tone of
the letter does not suggest it was
written maliciously. Either the
name was misspelled or the per-
son did not want to be identified.
Please feel free to express your
concerns directly to me or Dr.
Richard Kerns, associate dean for
Computer Services in the School
of Business.
Robert E. Schellenberger
Science major
discusses lab
To the editor:
I would like to reply to Susan
Terrell's editorial about the busi-
ness computer lab. I agree that
there arc definite problems with
the computer lab, but she is incor-
rect in assuming that the Decision
Sciences Department controls the
lab. The business computer lab is
sta f f ed and opera ted by the School
of Business departments. Classes
from all majors in the School of
Business, not just Decision Sci-
ences, have assignments which
have to be completed in the com-
puter lab. So the problems associ-
ated with thelabdo not only affect
Decision Sciences majors but all
business majors.
One problem is the lack of an
appropriate amount of equipment
to service the large number of
students who need to use the lab.
This is due mostly to the lack ot
funds necessary to purchase the
needed resources and cannot be
solved until more funds are made
available. Students can help the
situation by beginning assign-
ments as early as possible and
taking advantage of off-peak lab
Another problem is the staff
in the lab. 1 agree with Ms. Terell
in that some, not all, of the assis-
tants are rude, intimidating to
beginning users and often unwill-
ing to provide help. 1 understand
that the lab assistants cannot be
expected to know the answers to
specific questions associated with
various assignments, but if they at
least knew where to direct the
student to get the answer, this
would be of great help. Often, the
degree of help a student receives
and the type of work they are al-
lowed to do in the lab is directly
dependent on who is working in
the lab at the time. One solution to
this problem would be a protocol
manual made available to all stu-
dents that outlines what type of
work is allowed in the lab, what
resources and manuals are avail-
able, procedures for obtaining
these resources, procedures for
pnntingand the number of printed
copies allowed and the time pe-
riod thestudentisallowed to leave
the computer to ask their instruc-
tor a question before a lab assis-
tant decides that it is okay to pop
their disk out, move their personal
belongings and give the machine
to someone else.
Another way to relieve some
of the staff ingproblcms is to allow
junior and senior business stu-
dents to work in the lab. These
students would have some advan-
tage over the graduate students in
that they are likely to have worked
that students are working on in
the lab and could possibly pro-
vide more direct answers to spe-
cific questions. This would also
take some of the load off instruc-
Maybe if Ms. Terrell would
direct her complaints to the right
source instead of hiding behind a
pen and an alias, then some of the

defends DSCI
To the editor:
I am a lab assistant for the
Academic Computing depart-
ment, and we staff several labs on
campus. The School of Business
lab, on the third floor oi the Gen-
eral College building, does not
happen to be one of these. I have
been told, bv manv students sent
to us from the Business lab; how-
ever, I am sure most of the stu-
dents who use the labs staffed by
AC will agree that we have very
friendly, helpful assistants. My
point is I do not appreciate the title
to the letter to the editor in the
Tuesday, March 14'spaper, "Com-
puter labs fail to suffice nor the
last line of this letter where Susan
Terell stated, "If you are a lab
assistant, learn to treat people as
people, not problems The assis-
tants at the business lab may be
"obnoxious" as she says, but we at
Academic Computing are not, just
as Academic Computing's labs do
not "fail to suffice

C ottrell. "It was also rare to see
herpes zoster among people in
high school and college The dis
ease was known to afflict pninar
ily the elderly, manifesting as a
clinically depressed condition due
to malnutrition, chronic disease,
or various kinds of strong medica-
tions. Whenever herpes was pres
ent, physicians were suspicious of
an underlying subclinical cancer
today the picture is quite differ-
ent In the young adult popula-
tion, herpes, venereal warts, and
various fungal infections are in-
creasingly common among both
young men and young women
I hus an ever-growing per-
centage ot sexually active young
adults are contracting sexually
transmitted diseases, ailments
winch were once quite rare and
obscure Why have they begun to
afflict us at this time in such a
concentrated way? This is still an
unsolved problem Most medical
authorities have attributed these
nsmg trends to increased levels tit
sexual activity, based on both
society s growing acceptance ot
promiscuity and the comparative
ease ot contraception, especially
the pill. This riew, which implies
an inherent risk ot infection tor
am casual sexual encounter, is
concerned only with transmission
ot an infectious agent, and it
completely ignores the issue ot
susceptibilit) orresistance. Atbcst,
resistance is viewed in terms ot
condoms or diaphragms, never in
termsoi blood chomistrv or sound
W hen it conies to substance
abuse (diet and drug-related), it
is not hard to see why the young
heterosexual population may soon
become recognized as a high-
risk group for AIDS consider
the risks they share with male
homosexuals According to
Cottrell, it is quite common tor
gay men to have a history ot
chronic herpes, venereal warts.
gonorrhea, s phihs and recurrent
parasitic and fungal infections on
particular, candidiasis), and re-
peated stresses to the immune
system in the form of multiple
antimicrobial treatments. In fact,
this basic profile is used through-
out the medical literature to desig-
nate the high-risk categories for
Thesame profile accurately ap-
plies to heterosexuals who are
getting AIDS. The combination of
viral infections with the various
taken-for-granted stresses of
modem life formula milk, un-
balanced nutrition, lack of exer-
cise, tonsillectomies, antibiotics
and other medications may ulti-
mately bring about a breakdown
of the immune system, making one
more susceptible not only to the
elusive AIDS virus, but to all vane-
tiesot deadly microorganisms. Hie
healthy person will have a much
greater chance of eliminating the
virus before it begins killing the
cells of the immune system. We
deem this to be true for all people
regardless of sexual preference.
Health (or linmunocompen-
tence) is a byproduct of our past
and present environment and is
determined by threeclosely related
factors: heredity, psychology, and
environment. While our genetic
constitution stays fairly stable over
time, our physiological condition
changes on a daily basis It we
have a strong constitution, it may
take much abuse and may mask
the negative effects ot unbalanced
living. It such abuse continues,
however, we eventually reach a
constitutional limit and are
"struck" by a serious illness. Thus
we can weaken a strong
constitution and strengthen a
weak constitution. While hered-
ity is certainly important, it is
beyond our control. "It is time to
learn about strengthening our
natural disease resistance says
(.ottrell. "Psychological and en-
vironmental factors such as re-
laxation and balanced diet are con-
trollable and will promote strong,
healthy immunity
The specter of AIDS, how
ever horrible, is creating many
positive changes in society. It is
forcing us to re-examine our pos-
sible prejudices toward other
human beings. It forcing us to re-
evaluate our healthcare system
and our personal responsibilities
for own well-being. It is forcing
modem medicine toadopt a more
preventive orientation one that
supports the bod v rather than an-
tagonizes it Thus AIDS afford
the opportunity tor removing
those things which no longer
support our health and well-
being. It is always darkest before
the dawn.

Cottrell, M.Dhavecoauthored a

East's lawsuit
sheds light on
senator's illness
RALEIGH (AP) - Son. lohn
East's shocking suicide ended his
career the way it began: as the
mystery man of North Carolina
politics But his widow's lawsuit
isgradually shedding tight on East
who. durmg his years in the Sen-
ate, changed from a man known
for his quick wit to one who tried
on six suits each morning before
deciding what to wear.
"When he committed suicide,
it came as a big shock, a big sur-
prise. ' said Merle Black, a former
political science protessor at the
University of North Carolina at
Chapel I lill. o one realized how-
precarious his health and his
mental condition wei .
his inner circle ot friends, family
and statt.
East and his statt were able to
hide the senator's illness, and the
ineffectiveness it caused, partially
because last had ne er been very
well known, said Black, who is
now a professor ot politics and
government at Emory I nivcrsitv
in Atlanta
When he ran the first time,
he didn't make main personal
appearances For instance. .1 lot of
people didn t know he was in a
wheelchair He had never been
a politician widely known
throughout the state A lot of
people weren't used to him show-
ing up Black said.
East ran for office under the
wings of the National Congres-
sional Club, the political organi-
ationofSen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C.
defeating Democratic incumbent
Robert Morgan. He ran television
ads, allot which showed him only
from the waist up. Black said.
A federal judge in Baltimore
is now hearing testimonv in a $35
million lawsuit tiled bv East's wife,
Pnscilla. The suit accuses the Navy
of medical malprachceand wrong-
fully causing the death of her
husband. Fast killed himself on
funel9, l�86,bv filling the garage
. i rus( iieenville home with auto-
mobile exhaust fumes. He was 55.
Mrs. Fast wants to know why
several Navy doctors failed to
diagnose the senator's severe thv-
roid condition. The doctors'
negligent failure to diagnose
her lawsuit charges, allowed the
illness to reach "a stage in which
physical, emotional and intellec-
tual injuries to Senator Fast were
severe and apparently permanent.
These injuries directly caused his

retary of State lames A. Baker 111 is
bound for Africa's newest nation,
Namibia, where he aims to mix
celebration with negotiations to
end apartheid in South Africa and
to achieve a cease-fire in Angola.
In six fast-paced days, Baker
will visit three countries, includ-
ing South Africa - the first secre-
tary of state to go there since 1978.
He will fly to Capo Town on Thurs-
day to show US. appreciation for
the preliminary steps taken by
President FAV. de Klerk and to try
to drive him to go faster.
To underscore U.S. support
for the black movement Baker will
go on Friday to Soweto, the black
township outside Johannesburg,
for talks there with Desmond Tutu,
the black Anglican archbishop,
and other black leaders. Soweto
has been the cradle of the anti-
apartheid movement
Baker's 25-hour flight to
Namibia requires two refueling
stops before his arrival in Wind-
hoek, the capital, where world
leaders are gathering for inde-
pendence ceremonies. The coun
try was pried from South Africa's
control with thehelpof US. diplo-
macy that is now shifting its focus
to Pretoria, where a white minor-
ity government is being urged to
dismantle racial segregation.
Baker will meet in Windhoek
with Nelson Mandela, the deputy
president of the African National
Congress, and then in Cape Town
with de Klerk and Foreign Minis-
ter RF. Botha. 'The purpose ot
our seeing these gentlemen is to
encourage negotiations, to move
as rapidly as possible, and to see
what we can do to contribute to
that a senior U.S. official said.
Baker also will hold talks in
Windhoek with Jose Eduoardodos
Santos, the president of Angola, a
potentially rich African nation
with which the United States has
no diplomatic relations Baker
intends to urge him to negotiate
fora shareof the government with
lonas Savimbi, the USbacked
leader of the UN IT A insurgents in
a 14-year war.
He will see Savimbi in Kin
shasa, Zaire, before frying home
on Saturday.
Baker's aides made clear be-
fore his departure that the Bush
administration would not yield to
Mandela's demands for stiffer
sanctionsagainst South Africa and
would not recognize Angola until
the Luanda government settles
with the rebels.
But Baker also is ready to
assure Mandela that the admini-
stration would keep pressuring

"People make pilgrimages to
see these paintings. Scholars and
art lovers know where they be-

ecutive director of the Interna-
tional Foundation for Art Re-
search, said Sunday.
The theft occurred around 1
a.m. Sunday, when two men ap-
parently convinced museum
guards they were police, then
bound them with tape and made
their way to the museum's Dutch
room. It was seven hours before a

where people actually spent some
time researching and took specific

"It is the biggest Old Master
theft in this country, by far said
Ms. Lowenthal, whose organiza-
tion tracks art thefts.
"The Gardner Museum is a
treasure house she said. "Every-
thing in it is exceedingly valuable
and first-rate and superb.
The value of the missing
works, which included an ancient
Chinese beaker, was in the hun-
dreds of millions of dollars, said

Experts said the motive for

Reagan campaigns for 1990 Republican candidates
than a year and a half after pro-
claiming himself "at the end of a
long political journey Ronald
Reagan is back on the campaign
The former Republican presi-
dent is putting his popularity to
work for GOP candidates running
for Congress and state legislatures,
as some ex-presidents have done
before him.
Alreadv. Reagan has helped
with fund raising for state GOP
organizations in Georgia and
Washington, for Sena tecandidates
in Indiana and Iowa and for Sen.
Pete Wilson's gubernatonal bid in
California. And although he nor-
mally commands speaking fees of
$30,000 or more, Reagan accepts
no pay for his party appearances,
spokesman Mark Weinberg said.
Reagan, campaigning on Nov.
5, 1988, for George Bush, told a
national radio audience, "We're
now at the end of a long political
journey that marks for me the end
of my last campaign as an office-
Still, Reagan "intends to be
out there" for fellow Republicans
this year, Weinberg said.
GOP leaders are delighted to
have the ex-president's help.
When the Georgia Republican
Party announced that Reagan
would speak at its annual Presi-
dents' Day lunch in Atlanta on
Feb. 10, "the response was just
phenomenal said Bill Thorn, the
party's executive director. "It was
not a hard sell at all Nearly 2,000
people turned out, bringing in
more than $200,000.
A few weeks later, Reagan
traveled a few blocks from his Los
Angeles office to speak at a pri-
vate fund-raising lunch for Iowa
GOP Senate candidate Rep. Tho-
mas J. Tauke. The lunch attracted
about 45 people who each contrib-
uted $500or, in some cases, $1,000.
Combining politics with a
paycheck, Reagan pulled in about
$40,000 for Washington Republi-
cans in December by making brief
remarks and posing for photo-
graphsata private reception while
he was in Seattle to deliver a paid
speech to business executives.
For Wilson, the former presi-
dent spoke at fund-raisers in the
Los Angeles area and in San Di-
ego. Reagan also lent his signa-
ture to a fund-raising letter for
Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana several
months ago.
"Right now we arc helping
coordinate a political plan which
is geared toward all of the various
things that he can do to be helpful,
particularly in the target races
said Leslie Goodman, spokes-
woman for the Republican Na-
tional Committee.

Times are changing for students at East Carolina
Bv John Tucker
Assistant Features I ditor
Sometimes, 1 just don't un-
derstand why certain things hap-
pen like they do
Since I made the exodus from
the sheltered lifeof homeandcame
to ECU quite I few vears ago (fall
W), a number of changes have
been made that have continually
had in affect on student lifestyle
When one experiences �i
change, more often than not that
change is a positive transforma-
tion,Some of the changesl've seen
although thev may be positive
ones, tend to, well, to put it plainly,
just bum me out.
When I first came lo ECU
archagesagO, the student popula-
tion had a solid identity that it
could always stand bv We were
studentsenrolledat lU the party
school, where anyone could al-
ways find Wme kind of fun, and
we were proud of it.
These were thedays when vou
could have beer in a dorm room.
Your resident ad visor was the guy
who organized the golf tourna-
ment and bought beer for every-
one before the sexual awareness
film, not the guv who busted you
for having your stereo up too loud.
The drinking age was 18 and
downtown was a nonstop party,
five out of seven da vs in the week.
Cubbie's was a bar and not a
hamburger joint where everyone
would go and get those $1 killers
that would send vou to the moon.
Football games were out of
control. Everybody got rowdy. We
lost most of f he time then too, only
then it was a little different. Our
football team was bad, but every-
one was so happy just to Ik alive
and having fun that losing really
didn't matter that much.
Fraternities had wet rushUhey
served beer) and some of the wild-
est partieseverexperienccd. When
you walked back from downtown
in a stupor, you saw at the most
one policeman(not today's five or
six), who instead of hassling you
because you were a little drunk,
offered you a ride, so you would
make it home safely.
Outdoor concerts and parties
were a regular occurrence that
almost everyone went lo. There
was the Toga party, the Bahama
Mama party, the Spring Ming,
Halloween, the Fnd oi the World
party, and other parties that al-
ways featured live bands and a
crowd that just wouldn't quit. I'm
sure plenty of people can remem-
ber Staggering home from at least
one of these bruisers.
If someone had the urge to
throw oneof vour everyday house
parties or late nights you never
had to worry about a little bit of
noise. This was Greenville the
college town, home of FCU for
God's sake.
If you've been around for at
least a year or too, I think vou can
remember at least a few of the
things I'm talking about. Now
things have definitely changed.
For starters, the drinking age
is 21. That's right, vou can go to
jail, vou can vote, vou can he
drafted, vou can even get mar-
ried, but for stime unknown rea-
son you can't drink that yellow
foamv stuff.
Not that it really stops most
people from consuming alchohol.
Now people just have to take a
chance nd get someone to buy it
for them or resort to using that
take I D. Of course that's breaking
the la w, and about 5 of the people
actually do it get caught. How
many people do you think are not
going to take a risk like that.
And, no more beer in your
dorm rooms now, little students.
Yeah, right, that's a good one. A
college student that doesn't drink
Downtown, be careful on that
one. You can enter a bar under age
and vou get (Kit littleorangebrace-
let that vou have to wear all night
or you get a spanking. I mean I
hardly ever see anyone under age
drinking downtown.
Yes, and the end has hnallv
been put to all those- nasty loud
parties that seemed to have dis-
turbed everyone.
And finally we have a new
image. No one isexactly sure what
it is just yet, but it's there.
Anyway, I'm sorry for going
offthedeependjusta little bit The
point I'm trying to make is that it s
all gone. It's all been taken away
by people who know what's bet
ter for us while we rust sit idly by
and watch them do it. When vou

The Lighter Side
This little piggy went to market
VENTURA, Calif. (AP) No green-tinted swine will lead Paddy's
parade, because of objections that pig lovers made.
Plans were all set for St. Patrick's big deal until animal activists
started to squeal.
A full-blooded Irishman a sight to be seen! � planned to carry,
dear Colleen, a pig dyed bright green.
But Grand Marshal James Monahan, who will lead the parade, got
grief for the ham-handed plans he had laid.
The humane society had 30 complaints: Dyed pigs are no tribute to
dead Imh saints.
The porker might suffer emotional shock if paraded by Monahan
block after block.

The controversy over Moon-

Audubon Society and took con-
trol of about a mile of the coast.
Kurth said. Ihe following sum-
mer.about three-quartorsof a mile

This year, when the plovers

high tide mark along the entire
length of beach to keep sunbath-

"We're applauding them very
loudly said Alfred Hawkes,

Twenty-three rugby teams

on Saturday and Sunday, March
24 and 25, at Fort Bragg's Hedrick
iwetve teams are scheduled
to compete in the Club Division,
spanning a region from Asheville
to Myrtle Beach The 1989 Union
champion, Raleigh, has the top

RugbyEast, and second-seeded

final, with State coming out on top
18-0. UNC-Chapel Hill, off to a
strong 3-0 start this season, is also
expected to be in the hunt for the
championship cup.
The tournament structure
breaks both the Club Division and
College Division into several
brackets Each bracket plays a
round robin on Saturday. The top
teams from each bracket play in a
single elimination format on
Sunday for each Division's Plate
Championship, while the final
group of teams play for the Bowl
Championship This guarantees a
team more matches than under a
standard single or double elimi-
nation format. It also allows the
weakest teams to compete with
the strongest, fitting for a sport
that places as much emphasis of
camaradenc as on competition.

only rugby activity scheduled for
