saulted by a black male in the lobby
of Fletcher Residence Hall on
March 16.

ing to Kittrell.

neck sweater with an abstract
design on the front, a red polo shirt
under the sweater, dark trousers
and white high-top shoes The
subject was wearing a long dan-
gling, diamond earring in his left
ear. In addition to this description

Student Government Associa-
tion Presidential candidate Marty
Helms, a four year member of the
SGA Legislature, said a more ef-
fective student representative is
the most important issue he will
attend to if elected SGA president.
Since the SGA president is the
student representative to both the
Greenville City Council and the
ECU Board of Trustees, Helms said
he feels that the students have not
been property represented at these
meetings in recent years. "During
the last election, both mayoral
candidates said ECU wasnotprop-
erlv represented Helms said.
"We need better representation so
that the City Council will bo more
willing to work with students. This
kind of representation is very
important to me
Helms said he recognizes rape
awareness, parking problems,
campus lighting and the construc-
tion of a recreation facility as is-
sues a president must consider
throughout his presidency, not just
during the campaigning process.
"They are issues that have been
brought up during campaigns for
the past 2-3 years Helms said.

Soviet youth to learn English
A Soviet woman will bring her dream to the United States when
she visits Harvard University this April
Natasha Promoslova founded an after school program in Most, ow
that employs U.S. and Sovicl leachei - to instruct Soviet junior high and
high school students m the English language. She will be recruiting
some of her teachers from 1 larvard.
Teaching at the Soviet school is done in the IS. way, with students
sitting in a semi circle and lots oi relaxed interaction between teachers
and students.
Although the emphasis is on the English language, teachers will
have an opportunity to introduce Soviet students to American and
English literature, history and culture as a means of improving their
comprehension of English.
Promoslova will interview at Harvard and select three or tour
graduating seniors or graduate students from a group ot seven or eight
finalists. The students will work about lh hours per week and live either
in a cooperativeapartment or with a Soviet family. The program will
begin Sept. 1, 1991), and continue until May 31, 1991.

Athletes beware: hazards of
steroid use outweigh the benefits
By Suzanne Kellerman
Student Health Center, 757-6794
Steroids are used and abused widely by athletes and bodybuilders
in an attempt to improve performance and build muscle mass.
The most popular steroids are anabolic steroids. These are steroids
that are hormones that rest-mble testosterone which accelerates growth
in tissues upon which it acts. These steroids are used by some athletes
with the hope of enhancing performance. Some gymnasts deliberately
use them to stunt growth Most athletes will obtain these substances
from Other than medical providers and w ill use them in doses that are
much greater than those recommended.
There are physical and psychological side effects ol steroid use.
Intended effects such as increased muscle mass, euphoria, and a sense
of decreased fatigue are not worth the serious physical and psychologi-
cal effect.
Steroid use can cause personality changes of increase aggressive-
ness and hostility. This aggressiveness sometimes known as a "Roid
Rage" may even be sought after for its increased training affect and
improvement in sports where aggression is important in the game.
The physical side effects of steroid use are even more disturbing
Steroid use may help to accelerate hardening of the arteries. This is
because steroid use causes an elevation in blood pressure and blood
cholesterol. Prolonged use can lower the HDL level (the good choles
terol) in the blood stream and increase1 the levels of LDL'a (the bad
cholesterol).
Anabolic steroids may also be a cause of progressive liver destruc-
tion and cancer since there is a well known link between steroid use and
ance in reased. After flunking out
ot college, Whitlock joined the
Marines.

Strong leadership means growth
It's lime again for student govern-
ment elections. And ever) student at ECU
can have a say in dev iding who will Iv the
leaders on this campus for the 1990-91 aca-
demic year.
Many students don'l realize what an
impact these elected officers can have. Si IA
officers have the ability to make important
changes and advancements for the benefit
ol the student body and the universtiy. By
writing resolutions and bills and assertively
proposing them to the ECU Faculty Senate
and the I XV Board of Governors, student
bodv officers can create opportunities tor
the betterment ol the university. They could
possibly make changes in the curriculum,
have a say in where funds are spent and ad-
dress problems such as registration, park-
ing and the advising system.
But not just anyone can make this
progress. The elected student body officers
must be tactful, vocal, professional and
l
mature. It is imperative that they have the
ability to work with university officials and
those in the t Ireenville community as well.
Next Wednesday when you go to
choose a president, vice president, secretary
and treasurer to represent you at ECU, keep
these things in mind: listen to each
candidate's platform, don't be influenced
by others' opinions form your own, and
finally, elect officers who seem most ca-
pable ol getting the job done.
The East Carolinian would like to
invited everyone to attend the Candidates
Forum Monday at 3 p.m. on the Mall. All
candidates will present their platforms and
answer questions from members of the
media Continue to follow the SGA cam-
paign, mu don't forget to bring vour stu-
dent I. D. and vote on Wednesday, March 28.
I ast year's officers were elected with only
1 1 percent oi the student-body vote. Let's
nor let that happen again!

Examining
two kinds
of racism
To the editor:
( hie could not dispute the fact
that a large number ot blacks to-
day suffer theantagonizing effects
ot years of oppression. After cen-
turies of involuntary slavery, they
were set free and offered little or
no support. This greatly limited
their mobility and chance of im-
provement. I lowever, in the past
tew decades many valiant Ameri-
cans and people of the world of all
races, creeds and colors havecome
to the aid of the negro in America;
they've tried to right the wrong.
Nevertheless, many problems
continue to abound. Many black
children seem to suffer from a
sonseof inferiority and have noth-
ing better to do than to blame
their problems on the white
people. Manv black young men
are in the prisons, jails, juvenile
halls, strung out on the streets
and other places and they blame
the white people. There are many
more problems within the black
community that one could men-
tion that time will not allow. It is
mv contention that in a general
sense, the people of our nation, of
all colors, suffer from a kind of
misplaced priority system. They
have set their goals on self-per-
petuation both in terms of them-
selves and their particular inter-
est group. It is the purpose of this
letter to bring out the point that
we need a greater sense of unity,
community,andpurposcandthat
in order to prevent our total anni-
hilation, we must strive for a new
level of understanding and
greater spirit of compromise and
accomodation.Inother words, we
must learn to live with one an-
other.
Briefly 1 would like to note
the teachings of two great Afri-
can-Americans as it pertains to
the particularly noteworthy pre-
dicament, trouble and turmoil
within the black part of the hu-
man community (for this is not
just a black problem, it's a human
problem). M mister Louis Farakan
is a contemporary leader of black
people in Ar lerica; he is the head
of the nation if Islam. As I watched
a nd a t ten ti ve 1 v 1 istened to t he mes-
sage that he presented during his
appearance c n the Donahue Show,
1 got a better inderstanding oi the
doctrine of s paratism.
This man teaches, in short, this
message to the human commu-
nity: a) that bl ack people in Amer-
ica should separate themselves
from the white community, b)
because of ou 'free slave labor, we
should be given land and money
for such an endeavor, c) all black
prisoners should be freed and
given over to t he black muslims to
be 'healed d) that the black
community sh ould engage in self-
improvement projects. I must say
that while I res pect the leadership
of this man, 1 f ind his platform to
be founded in it sense of anger and
a tragic lack ot reality (except for
part D). I find this to be true be-
cause history hias proven that we
cannot make it alone (any one
person or gro up). We live in a
world in which we must interact
and function with one another.
This mav be the nmt of world
problems today; we don't see our-
selves as one community. The
problems that he stated are not
race problems, thev are human
problems. In the final analysis of
his teaching, Farakan fails to rec-
ognize that instead of engaging in
"people or race bashing we need
to address the fundamental issue
of how human hostilities and in-
adequaciesare expressed through
prejudice, racism, and discrimi-
nation of any kind. It would serve
the human community well for
such a zest, fervor, and persua-
siveness to be applied to the prob-
lems that weall have in common.
One of the factors that made
the late Dr. Martin Luther King a
great historical figure was his
understanding of the human
community. When one of us hurts,
we all should hurt. If a black man
is done an injustice, black people
suffer. However, if a white man is
hurt, we must suffer too. Thisedict
is as old as the saying, "Every-
body is somebody" and Dr. King
brought that to another level. He
taught all people that: a) we should
never passively accept our brother
and sister's (in a universal sense)
suffering, in other words, apath)
is not acceptable, b) we must work
together with all possible expedi-
ency to solve these problems c i we
must work fair in our demands
and be willing to negotiate, mother
words, be cool and plav fair, d �
Unethical, Unjustified, and Un-
founded accusations must not be
leveled at persons, even in the
midst of our greatest frustrations
and agonies and finally, e) If we
show humility, leadership, and
dedication to die cause of improv-
ing the human community with
out malice and wrongdoing, then
in the end. We Shall Overcome!
These statements are not
meant in anyway to divide the
black community at ECU or in
America, 1 just want you to think
about why you follow a person
and what they stand for. While 1
admire Mr. Farakan, I cannot abide
by his current teachings. I think he
is bringing the right message at
the right time, but in the wrong
way. However, because of my
dedication to this cause I am seek-
ing to develop some capable,
young leaders. To that end I have
started an organization known as
the Progressive Alliance of Uni-

versity Students and it shall be
dedicated to solving today's
unique and critical problems of
the human community through
sensitive,capable, and responsible
leadership. I hope you will join us
whether you are black or white
because we do recognize that there
are "two kinds of racism that is
by the oppressor and the op-
pressed (in this case white against
Mack and black against white) and
that the ultimate end will be our

Hazards of
drinking
and driving
To the editor:
Let's devote a few moments
to the cruel realitv of drinking and
driving. Drinking alcohol is bad
in itself for many obvious health
reasons, and driving isdangcrous
even when the drivers arc sober.
Therefore, when these two situ-
ations are combined, the result is
twice as bad. Why, then, do so
many "national" poo pie drink and
drive11 don't know the answer to
this question, but I do know the
usual outcome when these two
are combined.
1 do know what the outcome
was when a man, who had been
drinking and driving, hit my old-
est brother with his car back in
1979. My oldest brother's life
ended because thedrunken driver
wanted to feel "good I was eight
years old at the time, but 1 can still
remember the night it happened.
The phone call that woke my
family from sleep that night also
woke me for the rest of my life to
uSe harmful effects of drinking and
driving.
While trying to start his stalled
motorcycle on a street, mv brother
was hit by thedrunken driver. He
was thrown approximated 30 feet
through the air, and he died
immediately. His body was
maimed with bruises and lacera-
tions, and both legs were broken.
He didn't have a chance at life
then or forever more.
My mom and dad could smell
alcohol on the man's breath as he
said, "I'm sorrv "I'm sorrv"
didn't bring my brother back to
life, and 1 am sure this phrase has
been used many times since this
incident.
Since the policeman at the
scene of the "accident" knew the
driver, everything was fine, and
no breathalizer test was given.
Neither the man nor the police-
man was punished for what they
did that night, but they will some-
da v bo judged by God. 1 wonder
whether the man learned from his
mistake or if he still practices the
stupid habit of drinking and driv-
ing? If he has any conscience a tall,
he will probably never want to
drink alcohol again.
Many people detest murder-
ers, but that's what I consider the
man who killed my brother as well
as anyone else in his situation to
be. I am sure that the man respon-
sible for the death of my brother
never considered the slightest
chance of causing someone's
death. Nonetheless, my brother is
dead, and many more people
continue to fall victim to this same
tvpe of insanity. Alcohol is the
devil in a bottle,and if you're weak,
he will get you. Please address
this issue as the important one it
is, and don't end up saying "I
wish
Manv people are on their wav
to becoming alcoholics already. In
some classes, I hear phrases such
as, "Man, 1 drank so much liquor
last night that 1 was wasted
Sounds like real fun, huh? Why
don't they tell the story like it re-
allv is. True version: "Man, I drank
so much liquor last night that when
I woke up, I felt like '@x&, and I
puked my guts out. I wished I
hadn't drank so much I guess
that's not the cool story to tell. The
cool way to hand lea situation such
as this is to lie about it and kiss ass
so you won't feel rejected by your
"friends How stupid of these
people! Maybe they will change
their outlook on life before if s too
late. Maybe something a little less
drastic than the death of someone
will occur to these people. I don't
know the answer of thequestion of
why people drink and drive, but I
do know that I will never do some-
thing so selfish and stupid as this.

Lab assistant
dislikes
generalization
To the editor:
As an undergraduate with
concentration on Management
Information Systems and as an IS
professional for a few years, 1 can
identify and sympathize with Ms.
Ferrell's frustrations of learning
how to use computers. It is human
to feel the way Ms. Ferrell did, and
she should not internalize the feel-
ing that she was a problem.
However, it is my view that
her generalization of all the lab
assistants at Business School
Computer Lab as obnoxious is
unwarranted. Each lab assistant
would spend at the most ten min-
utes to solve a student's problem.
There were over fifteen lab assis-
tants working at different shifts
last semester. Therefore, her char-
acterization of all thelabassistants
based on this kind of encounters is
thought to be unjustified and base-
less.
Moreover, 1 think, it is not the
lack of professionalism among the
lab assistants causing such griev-
ance, but miscommunication and
mispcrccption. Misunderstading
intensified when lab assistants had
to be cautious in walking a thin
line between helping and doing
student's home work. The situation
was also compounded by the fact
that they had tocommunicate in a
language niether designed for nor
developed with sufficient vocabu-
laries to describe the computing
process. Some sensitiveness in
both parties might have allevi-
ated the problem.
Ms. Ferrell's decision of not
selecting Decision Science as the
major was based on the few lousy
times with the lab assistants and
the department personnel rather
than the course itself, she might
have misplaced her perspective
and have not given enough
thoughts on choosing a concen-
tration that would ultimately af-
fect her career path.
1 believe that Ms. Ferrell, like
many others, was misled by the
advertising slogan of computer's
"user friendliness Personal
computer technology, unlike
other disciplines such as account-
ing or physics which have over
hundred vears of modification
and standardization, was devel-
oped in the mid-1980s under
diverse commercial influences.
1 earning how to use it demands a
different cognitive understanding
and skill which will be improved
by actual hands�on working
experience. Quite often, it takes
tnal-and-error method. Experi-
ence and expertise accumulate as
the time of practice increases.
There is no short-cut.
Should Ms. Ferrell's situation
arise, students are Ix'tter off when
thay can allocate more time on
the subject, come to the lab pre-
pared, and bring a friend with
computer expertise1 or even a lab
assistant with whom they feel
comfortable (on a off-duty basis)
to walk through the problems.
Learning is not easy, and is never
meant to be, and that's why we're
all here.

Gonorrhea and chlamydia are

"When you hear about bro-

what isgoing on out there South-

"It's almost too much to be-
lieve you can ever get a handle on
it But alter last week's meeting
of the Knight Foundation's 22-

commission members made it
clear they are going to give it a try.
"A lot tit people tell us we

chairman oi the group and former
chancellor of the University of

there has never been a hint of

history.
"Wo don't have the money to

What is wrong, she suggested, is
no different than what's wrong
with American society that places
heavy emphasis on winning and

"But all is not lost either
Viverito said.
"Drexel is bankrupt, the
Keating 5 are under investigation,
Silent Sam Pierce is on the hot seat
and drug usage actually is going
down Don't tell me we can't cor-

First, the conference commis-

WASHINGTON (API � Ira-
nian hardliners have derailed
moderates' efforts to push for the
release of hostages being held in
the Mideast, according to ABC
News.
Leaders of groups holding
hostages in Lebanon were sum-
moned to Tehran for meetings last
week, ABC's Pierre Salinger re-
ported from Paris on Sunday,
quoting sources within the
Hezbollah movement in Lebanon.
"There, the current plan to
release the hostages was sabotaged
by Iranian hardliners opposed to
(Iranian President Hashemi)
Rafsanjani Salinger reported.
"The hostage leaders returned
to Lebanon three days ago and
one of the organizations. Islamic
jihad, issued a statement saying
the hostages wouldn't be re-
leased he said. "This position
was confirmed at a secret meeting
in Lebanon 48 hours ago Spokes-
woman Alixe Glen said there
would be no White House rea
tion to the report on Sunday
There had been several weeks
of hints that the hostage issue
might be moving toward a solu
tion. But on March 15, Islamic Jihad
threatened to kill three captive
American educators unless its
demands were met regarding
Jewish immigration from the
Soviet Union. The demands m ere
not spelled out.
The Tehran Times newspaper
in Iran, which has dose ties to
Rafsanjani, said in recent editori-
als that the hostages should be
freed on humanitarian grounds.
Rafsanjani himself said he thought
the issue was moving toward a
solution.
Also, Sheikh Mohammad
Hussein Fadlallah, spiritual guide
of Hezbollah, said last month in a
sermon that a humanitanan means
of freeing the hostages must be
found.

Everyone has heard some Doo-Wop, or at least
some ambitious young voices raised in song. 1 low-
ever, the true essence of a cappella music was de-
fined March 16 in Wright Auditorium.
The Swingle Singers glided onto stage stir
rounded in tranquility. Their clothing echoed the
colors of the sea, as did their music. Their singing
first touched the audience with Moart's overture to
The Magic Flute.
The audience was entranced by the magical,
musical quality ol the Swingle Singers' voices. They
sang an ancient, haunting lullaby that brought many
people to tears. Then they turned around to tease the
audience with Tuxedo (unction and Puttin' on the
Kit.
This British group, composed Of tour nun and
tour women, had talent beyond their vocal abilities

instruments, touching off with drums, trombones,
recorders and even a church bell for their rendition ot
the 1S12 Overture. The performance was also high
lighted by witty mannerisms and characterizations
Two pertect examples would be "Quasimodo" ring
ing the church bells, and thechase, sting and death ol
a bumblebee in The flight of the Bumblebee
Before the evening was ever, The Swingle Sing
ers took the audience to S otlandand Peru to hear the
traditional folks songs "Charlie is My Darling" and
"Cachapuya
The Swingle Singers did not iist stav with i las-
sical and jazz. They sang three Beatles' tunes, includ-
ing "Blackbird" and "Lady Madonna A little 1 Iue
Lewis was thrown in as the women left the stage and
the men sang "Naturally" to the delight ol the female
members ot the audience.
The Swingle Singers' version of PcterGunn was
almost indescribable, lor this particular song, the
"instrumentation" was perfect. It the listeners had
closed their eyes, the Swingle Singers could I

Aerobics class is 'almost painless
By Adam Cornelius
stait Writer
i ka, here's how it happened.
1 was next door at a friend's
�use Wednesday afternoon. I had
� kerne over to get back my
t � trie skillet and dutch oven
which she had kept for the last
two months We started talking
ind before we knew it, it was time
� r her 5:30 p.m. aerobics class at
tampions Gym.
"Why don't you come along?"
she asked.
i was lost for words. I've never
�nod aerobics before and I didn't
know many guvs that had. My
friend assured me that there are
usually guys there.
1 tried as hard as I could to
jlide my way out oi it. I groaned.
I said "well, I don t know" a lot.
Despite all this, something in
the back ol my head told me to go.
1 r it, it might bo fun leotards,
music, stimulation of the ol' adre-
nal gland. At that point, only a
shoestring of undefinaWe pride
kept me from Champions.
i h 1 'on't be a wimp she
tokd me.
That did it Five minutes later
I was hack at my house, picking
out my aerobics wardrobe. My
choices were fairly limited. All I
really had to wear was a pair of
baggy,off-grey Umbra shorts and
a blue Nike shirt from tenth grade.
So miu h for fashion
So we were off. As we were
walking she coached me.
"There'll be fifteen minutes oi
warmup, thirty minutes of aero-
bics and fifteen minutes of
warmdown she said. "Now,
there are some exersises that guys
ust can't do, so don't feel obliged
to do them all. Just go at your own
Thanks for the vote oi confi-
dence.
When we got there, the class
had already started. I edged along
the wall behind the group of a
dozen � all girls. I pulled off mv
sweatshirt. My shoes got tangled
in mv sweatpants but I managed
to yank them off and started into
the workout. Guess whih part ol
the room 1 slinked back to?
At first it was easy. Lori, our
instructor started us off with some
easy stretches. The first exercises
were the same way, kind of like a
cross between running in place
and dancing. This is nothing, I
thought. First of all, when 1 run, 1
move, and my dancing is high-
impact anyway.
Then Lori started making us
actually coordinate our move-
ments � left, back, forward, back.
To the rear, back, forward, back,
she kept going. Now double time,
let's go. The songs' seemed to get
faster and faster.
At best, 1 was keeping up. But
by "That's What 1 Like About
V.hi I was dodging leotards left
and right, zigging when I should
have boon zagging
1 realized tor the tirst time that
1 was perspiring rather profusely
(.neverlet 'em see you sweat, huh?)
Off to the side, twoorthreepeople
were putting their sweat shack on.
They werelea ingand I wasabout
