renovation and addition to ECU'S lovner library
could be cut from the state's budget in May.

thai w� can, Pr Marlene Springer, vice chancellor
I - academic affairs said.
Walter Robbs, Callahan& Tierce Architects, the
ai I "� tural firm hired to design the plans tor the
reno i land the addition to Joyner, are currently
phase ot completing their work. The
drawings alone, with the library proposal will be
presented to the N.C. legislature during their short
session in May
more than 10 years since any con-
strue! een done to the library; we are running
outol pace foi ur books The university will have
to b rei tine space to house the books, Springer
The addition to the library would enable the
university to increase the seating capacity of the
library from 700 to 1,400and it will allow tor expan-
sion of media resources so that "ECU can keep up
with technological innovations Springer said.
The original request for the new building and
renovation of the library was ?4 million, this figure
includes the $7 million tor planning and beginning
construction costs
The proposed cutbacks are a result of North
Carolina's $350 million budget shortfall. According
to Hie Associated Press, C.C. Cameron, Cow !im
Martin's budget director, said last week that the state
probably can save$24 6 million by withholding funds
set aside tor the Engineering Graduate (enter at

center and UNC-Chapel Hill's School of business
E( U "will have to continue to impress tin- need
ot the building to the legislature, and we will also
express the need to private donors, ' Springer said.

South Afrikaan visits ECU
By Latoya Hankins
Special to The last Carolinian
Vice council tor the govern-
ment of South Africa, Maree Was-
sels, spoke to ECl' students and
faculty Wednesday on the emerg-
ing image of his country.
Wassels began his discussion
by criticizing the New York-based
news program South Africa
today Me said the program is
"not a fair portrayal ot the situ-
ation in South Africa It is depend-
ent on showing the bad side of
South Atnca. Wassels said that a
solution to the biased program
would be tor South Africa to re-
open press relations with the rest
ot the world, ending the period of
press blackout that has Kvn en-
forced in the past
Wassels asserted that while
there will no! be an absolute trans-
fer of power, the African majority
will be given .i place in governing
the country. This transfer of power
will not ome without some pro-
tective measures passed bv the
Afrikaner minority, according to

two new concerts m the coming
This is Prake's second year as
Student Union president, and he
said he "feels like there is a whole
lot of potential in the Student
Union that has not been tapped
into yet
Drake said some projects, such
as the Cinematic Series, do well,
but others, such as the Cot foehouse
Series and lllumina Art Competi-

said he would like to see much

I hrake also said he would like
to see more recruitment in the Stu-
dent Union, including more appli-

There are plans now for a
welcome-back concert on the mall
this fall, Prake said. He said they
plan to have bands and an open
house at the concert.
Another concert is planned for
after the Purple Gold game, and
Drake said that the Temptations
will sing. The Student Union is
still trying to find another band to

The Student Union places an
emphasis on leadership training
and student development, said
Prake. 1 le said he feels this makes
it an extremely worthwhile organi-
zation Ui be involved in.
He said that a fall leadership
retreat to the beach is planned for
the committee chairpersons. The
retreat will focus on situational
leadership, programming, market-
ing and communication skills, and
will give personality tests to help

There will also be a one-day

there is enough communication
between the different groups,
especially involving things like

In m previous letter in tins

religion serves as a function of
authority on what to believe and
what not to believe in this coun-
try. 1 then suggested that perhaps
religious leaders did not corner
the market on truth, therefore we
should question our leaders on
their policies and the relation of
those policies to their professed
retigious convictions. George Bush
serves as an excel It nt example of a
politician who will use religious
issues and then co something
completely anti-Christian, like

hurts ECU
To thoeelitor:
I am a biologv major at this
fine institution ot higher learning
and 1 freelv admit that at first ECU'S
biology department was not mv
tirst choke. That was before I took
Botany 1070. In Botany a new world
was revealed, and 1 became more
encouraged that. Hey maybe this
was a credible place to get a degree
in biologv. I found out recently,
much to mv extreme disappoint-
ment, that Botany and Zoology will
be canceled after the fall. The en-
tire biology curricula has been re-
worked almost without any
communication between faculty
members and students. I have
heard that botany and zoology
will be combined. This, m mv
opinion, is definitely detrimental
to the students. Botany and Zool-
ogy are both essential to biology
majors, they are the foundation of
biology. Why is thischange going
on now, so suddenly?
The real question is: Should
students have anv influence on
the courses that they think are
pertinent to their field ot studv?
Another question is: Whose deci-
sion was this anyway? I person-
ally had planned to take more
botany having found myself
caught up in the enthusiasm of
mv professor and with a genuine
interest I never knew I had. The
real travesty is that not even
advisors know what is being of-
fered and what's obsolete A lot
of students, I'msure, havealready
signed up for these courses and
during the summer thev will
probably get a little note in the
mail saying that thev wll have to
change their schedules. What a
pain! Students should have input
in the planning process that takes
place, after all it is their education
and future FCU biologv students
be aware of these changes and
prepare tor them.

Biologv Major
By Nathaniel Mead Columnist
Until a year ago last Saturday,
the beaches along Alaska's Prince
William Sound were among the
few places in the United States
w here you could feel Iikevou were
the first person who had ever been
there. Today, the coastline oi that
area reeks of oil, and m.inv oi the
beaches are littered with the oil-
soaked carcasses of otters and
waterfowl. Biologists from the
University of Washington say the
entire habitat has been irrevoca-
bly altered bv what was appar-
ently the worst oil spill in historv.
To be sure, Prince William
Sound looks a lot bettertoday than
it did in the months after the Exxon
Valdez supertanker spilled 11
million gallons ot oil in the water.
The water is blue again, and most
of the beaches are no longer cov-
ered with thick mats of oil. But
appearances can be deceiving. To
begin with, some oi the oil col-
lected in coves and inlets which
were difficult for Exxon's rescue
crews to access. At the Bay oi Isles,
for example, oil has formed a vast
swamp with blackened banks,
bringing relentless death to Otters
andseabirds. In many places shel-
tered from wind and waves
Mother Nature's usual way ot
purging human effluence the
oil has turned to a black crust on
rocks and gravel.
Ironically, Exxon's cleanup
efforts have themselves exacted a
heavy toll on the natural environ-
ment, rhe emergency crews work-
ing tor Exxon left hterallv tons ot
trash from their cleanup endeav-
ors strewn along miles ol shore-
line. In fact there's so much trash
that state officials are now calling
it a second spill 1 �cxon and state
officials are present!) considering
hundreds ot proposals tor other
commerical cleanup operations,
from chemical detergents to oil-
eating bacteria. But most ot these
options have been jettisoned be-
cause they either inadequate or
potentially more harmful to the
But the problem of cleaning
up oil in a clean way is miniscute
compared totheoily reality which
persists for an estimated I20miles
of Alaskan shoreline. (The origi-
nal area affected was over 330
miles long.) The first due is a dead
giveaway: the unmistakable smell
of oil and gasoline in the air along
much ol the shoreline. The next
clue comes from digging down
into the sand) rov. ky surface, lust
.i tew in hes below thesurface, the
gravel turns black, and a rainbow-
colored oily sheen floats on water
seeping into the hole. Evidently
Exxon's cleanup efforts only
scraped the surface; to have taken
all the oil would have been a gar-
gantuan technological feat one
that would have involved digging
up most ot the coastline around
the sound.
This "underground oil
which has soaked as much as two
feet oi the ground along main
beaches, is now the primary eco-
logical concern. Recent studies
show that the in lsible menace is
slowly bleeding out of at least 300
beaches in and around Prince
William Sound, liven many of the
areas which Exxon claims have
been unaffected by the spill are in
fact seriously tainted one has
only todigupa patch of ground to
find the black slime below. The
situation is analogous to a toxic
landfill that hasboen covered over
w ith dirt and gravel: the menace is
hidden from view, which makes it
all the more dangerous.
Geochemists sav the insidi-
ous bleeding of subsurface oil
could go on for a very time. If
these toxic deposits persist as
predicted, they may eventually
leach into the food chain, putting
not only animals but also humans
at risk. Fish and shellfish exposed
to the spill � some of which sank
to the bottom of the Sound � may
carry oil compounds in their or-
gans and flesh If the oil-tainted
fish are harvested from fouled
waters bv native Alaskan fisher-
men, who relv on seafood for 80
percent oi their dietary protein,
these people will be at increased
risk of cancer or various organ
diseases. FDA officials sav the fish
should be okav if it smells, looks
and tastes all right, but no one
knows the true pa ra meters of food-
borne, oil-related toxicity.
"The Big One as some envi-
ronmentalists now call it, spelled
death and suffering to untold
numbers of birds and sea otters.
The death toll for waterfowl is
estimated by some scientists of
the Natural Resources Defense
Council (NRDO at upwards of
80,000! The sea otter population,
estimated at between h.tXX) and
10,000 before the spill, was cut by
one-half. Thousands of seals and
doens ot whales may also have
been killed by the spill, though
actual numbers are unknown
because the affected animals sink
to the bottom and the effects may
be more gradual than seen in the
smaller marine mammals
But the hardest hit species
ironically for the United States �
was the bald eagle. At least 1 30 of
these great birds have already
perished. And because of their
position in the food chain, main
eagles are still succumbing to
toxins in the tish thev scavenge off
the shoreline One scientist at an
Exxon-financed rescue center told
the NRDC that between 1500 and
2300 are expected to die from the
accident. The oil, once ingested,
causes damage to the eagles' kid-
neys and h er Additionalh ,oik e
stained with oil, which fouls their
nests, the adult eagles abandon
their eggs. VS. I ish and Wildlife
patrols say that most cables nest
in the area are now empty. It may
be tust as well: biologists sav there

Cleaning I p Our Act
rhough most of the ecological
focus ot the Exxon Vaidese trag-
edy was on the marine eco-sys-
tem, the spill itselt was only a
symptom ol a larger problem
threatening wildlife on a much
grander stale I ess than a year
before the spill, the federal Fish
and Wildlife Service reported that
hundreds ot acres ol Alaskan
tundra around Prudhoe Bay (the
source of the oil sent bv pipeline to
Port Valdez) had been blackened
by chemical spills and oil seeping
from the pads oi drilling rigs.
Before the oil companies arrived.
Prudhoe Bay was a pristine wil-
derness sanctuary for bear, deer,
caribou,Otters, and more than 1t)
kindsof birds. Now theentire area
has been transformed into an
ecological disaster area, and oil

more wilderness areas for plun-
der. The oil industry is destroying
Alaska as much bv land as it is bv
Ever since the Nixon era, the
U.S. government has catered
strongly to the wishes of Big Oil.
Thus far President Bush has failed
to press for the conservation
measures and energy taxes that
would ease our dependence on
overseas oil. Instead, the admini-
stration continues to sanction the
exploitation of one of the last
remaining wildernesses on the
North American continent It is a
bad bargain, however; even bv
the most optimistic estimates, th.
area will never produce enough
oil to make it worth the environ
mental risks. At this very moment,
Alaskan wilderness is being irre-
versibly altered by the petroleum
So what are we to do7 Many
people have destroyed their Exxon
credit cards, and some have cho-
sen to not buv gas from Exxon. But
if you bovcott Exxon, why
shouldn't vou bovcott all the

Boycotting the entire consortium
would be quite a tnck for those
who drive regularly Moreover

To the editor:
The editorial column by
Nathaniel Mead entitled, "Nuclear
Industry's Darkest Side raised,
within me, feelings of nostalgia. It
reminded me of the sort of state-
ments I grew accustomed to in the
'60s. Unfortunately, then, as now,
truth suffers so that emotions can
reign. It is doubtful that any of the
supposed facts given in this ar-
ticle carry any scientific validity.
There are certainly individuals
that will make such claims; and
some of these may be described as
scientists, but the scientific com-
munity would not endorse these
claims. I would, in particular, point
out that Dr. Steinglass has little, or
no,credibility within the scientific
Further, without question, we
are headed for a power shortage

that complain about nuclear

solar energy as our salvation. Asa
member of the International Solar
Energy Society for 15 years, and
one who has actively engaged in
research in this field, let me say
that such a belief is a foolish fancy
Now we have hard choices in front
of us, for me, nuclear power is, by
far, the most benign choice avail-
able. It has its risks, but all choices,
including, incidently, solar, have
at least similar risks. You cannot

extent, is an exception, but, except
in marginal cases, it will not be
embraced by our society. This is a

ing. Because he calls attention to
it, I thank Mr. Mead.

Bv Suzan Lawlei
Stall Writer
In an attempt to recognize
academically successful students,
the university has designated
Fleming Residence Hall as the hon-
ors dorm tor the coming school
yeai 1 kmors students, Teaching
Fellows, and University Scholars
will live on the first floor of Flem
ing Residence 1 lall. One wing on
Ihe first floor has boon reserved
tor the men in the programs.
Other students will live on the
second tloor. rhe following year,
however, the entire dorm will be
specifically for the students in the
various programs.
rhe director of the honors
program, Dr. Da id Sanders, has
been petitioning for honors hous-
ing tor 10 years, " I ho purpose is
to have some sense ol community
among like minded people
Mar) Elizabeth Davis, presi
dent o( the East Carolina Honor
Organization, said the honors
housing w ill give the students who
share common interests a chance
to have special programs. She
added that the dorm could help
ihe university in recruiting aca-
demicallv gifted students.
Students and administrators

( onnie Burgess, the coordinatot
ol 1 leming Hall, said. I think it's

ingl lall,however,werenothappy
with the change 1 isa Beavers, a
resident advisor in Fleming said
. ol the girls reacted nega-
tive K I he fefcl like they've been
� 4sed out ' shtrsafd "Some of
the girls moved upstairs, hut the
next vear thev 're going to gel
kicked out again.
Beavers added that one girl
had to move out because her pat
cuts disliked the co-ed arrang
ment The girls also protested
moving because Fleming Hall is
air conditioned and is located on
central campus.
Burgess said. One girl was
upset because she had a room tor
several years But. They weren't
just evicted. Ihev were given pri-
ority tor any other room .n cam

The issue of honors housing
was discussed m tin- March issue

are segregated by interest groups.
lor example, students interested
in sports could live in one dorm

Sanders said the honors students
have been given sections ol cer-
tain dorms hi the past, but only a
suite here .nJ a tew rooms there

to live together in an environment

ECU faced Puke University first.

stingy Pirate defense, gave ECU a
29-0 victory.

indicate much of the embarrass-

performance of male athletes
generally and,specifically,of those
parti ipating in the revenue-gen-
erating sports of football and
men's basketball.
Reports filed by the IS Mid-
western public and private insti-
tutions the last four vears show,
on average, relatively little aca-
demic success among members of
the men's basketball teams and
only slightly better performance
among football plavers during the

football plavers received degrees

Analysis of the pasl fouryears'
reports from all the Big Ten and
Big Eight schools discloses sev-
eral trends:
� Graduation rates tor male
athletes generally are lower than
the graduation rate tor the overall
student bodv at each institution.
Onlv Iowa, Northwestern and
Ohio State reported a graduation
rate for male athletes higher than
or eiual to that of the student bod v.
� En contrast, the graduation
rate among female athletes is
higher than the overall student
bodv rate at 15 of the 18 schools in
the conferences.
Ironically, Northwestern was
one of the schools to report a lower
graduation rate for women ath-
letes than for the general student
bodv. According to the school's
information, H4 percent of the
female athletes graduated, com-
pared with 85 percent of the over
all student bod.
Men S basketball showed
little overall success or improve-
ment over a four-) car period.
Using a four-year average, the
school with the best graduation
rate among the Iwo conferences
was Northwester! winch re-
ported a KX1 pen ent rate. 1 hat

cent graduation rate at the Uni-
versity ol Missouri, where only
two of 15 players recruited to play

grees within five yearsol entering
(iraduation rates of male
athletes in the so i ailed non-reve-
nue sports in both conferences
generally are higher than for foot-
bail and men's basketball players.
The onlv exceptions appear to be
among Big Fight baseball players
and wrestlers, withaveragegradu-
ation rates of 28 percent and 23
percent respectively.
Football players in the two
conferences graduate at a higher
rate than men's basketball play-
ers. But onlv twooi the 18 schools,
Iowa and Oklahoma, reported a
higher graduation rate tor foot-
ball players than tor the overall
student body.
At Iowa, 55 percent ot tour
i lasses of football players gradu-
ated within five vears, compared
to an overall student body rate of
52 percent. At Oklahoma, 36 per-
cent of football plavers graduated
during the same period compared
to a 35 percent rate for the entire
student body.
Academic advisers at several
tt the schools said the five-year
period may not be the best stan-
dard to use, but thev also sug-
gested it was a valid one.
"1 don't think five years is
enough tor most athletes, given
the demands that are placed on
them said Elaine Donohue,head
of academic advising at the Uni-
versityof Minnesota. "At the same
time, something like eight years is
too long

director and head of academic

cause they want to cam some
money by barnstorming with an
all-star team or want to try to get

Raleigh newspaper said.
Contacted Wednesday, Jay
Goldberg, an assistant to
Valvano's lawyer. Art Kaminsky,
said he had received no word from
the school.
Valvano was out of town and
unavailable for comment, his sec-
retary said.
Under Valvano'scontract, the
university would be required to
pav thccoach$4(Y),000ifheleaves,
unless another agreement is
reached. The source said the
money would likelv come from
the N.C. State Athletic
Department's emergency fund.
The news comes one day after
Valvano told a VVolfpack booster
club in Sanford, N.C, about 45
miles southwest of Raleigh, that
he wanted to continue to coach
the team, which he led to the
NCAA championship in 1983.
Speaking Tuesday night to 175
people, Valvano received a stand-
ing ovation when he said he
wanted to stav as head coach, said
Robbv Turcell, the club's assistant

demanding that university admin
istrators keep Valvano have gar-
nered 16,000 signatures.
But the university's campus
newspaper, The Technician, and
some members of the University
of North Carolina system Board
of Governors � which oversees
the state university system � have
called tor his ouster.
Valvano was the subject of a
ls89 book, "Personal Fouls
which alleged misdeeds iu N.C.
State's basketball program. The
book led to an NCAA investiga-
tion that found some team mem-
bers had violated rules bv selling
school-issued athletic shoes and
complimentary game tickets.
The NCAA barred the team
from postseason play this year and
put it on two years' probation.
The findings prompted broad
reforms in sports programs
throughout the university system.
Last month, the State Bureau
of Investigation confirmed it is
probing allegations that Shackle-
ford and former teammates
shaved points during the 187-88
season. Shackleford and others
deny any point-shaving.
Valvano said he had no knowl-
edge of the earlier NCAA viola-
tions, of anv point-shaving or of
loans to Shackleford, now playing
with the NBA's New Jersey Nets.
During the emergency meet-
ing of the 13-member Board of
Trustees on March 20, Monteith
ticked off a litanv of statisticsabout
academic problems of players on
Valvano's teams.
"He really laid it all out about
the academic performance of the
team The News and Observer
quoted one unidentified person
as saying. "It's miserable'
The review included previ-
ously unreleased information
from the campus public safety
office, which documented a pat-
tern of basketball players being in
trouble with campus authorities.
It also included data about the
academic performance of football
players, whose grade-point aver-
ages have increased more than half
a letter grade since coach Dick
Sheridan arrived in 1986.
"You can only say Tie's a good
guv' and 'he wasn't hired to 'each,
but tocoachso often the Raleigh
newspaper quoted another per-
son as saving of Valvano.
I toward Manning, the Raleigh
lawyer who is representing the
board in its negotiations with the
coach's agent, asked trustees for a
week to secure Valvano's resigna-
Manning told board members
that he planned to present the
information about serious aca-
demic problems to Kaminsky,
Valvano's agent.
Trustees agreed not to release
the negative information about
academics, but indicated they
would do so it Valvano refused to
step down.
"That's the leverage they
have one person told the Raleigh
At least two trustees lar-
ence Lightner of Raleigh and
Daniel (Junter of (lastonia said
during the meeting that then-
thought Vah ano should have had
a chance to speak to the board
before a decision was made. But
atter hearing from Monteith and
Manning, they agreed that Man-
ning should be authorized to
negotiate a settlement.
University officials refused to
comment publicly on what tran-
spired at the meeting, referring all
inquiries to Manning, who could
not Iv rea hed for comment.

Famed violinist to play
in Wright Auditorium
By David Herring
General Mjnjger
Leafing through the biographical
information more like a tanned
synopsis - on Itzhak Perlman, I re-
ceived my first impressions of the man
many music critics hail as the greatest
violinist of our age. As I read the re-
views of his concerts in some of the
greatest concert halls in the world, mv
first impression of Perlman gradually
became one of awe
Born in Israel, Perlman could sing
opera arias when he was two and at
three , after hearing virtuoso jascha
Heitetz plav on the radio he asked to
be given a violin. He began playing the
violin when he was five years old and
bv the age of 10 he was playing with an
orchestra in Tel Aviv and giving his
first sok. recitals.
However, hearing the violin for
the first time was onlv one of two
events that were to have an impact on
Perlman's childhood and shape his
destiny. Whenhewasfour,about with
polio left him paralyzed in both legs. It
was upon returning from his convalescence in
the hospital that he was given his first violin
"In retrospect, while I was practicing, it
(polio) never had an effect on me Perlman said.
"I knew that how well you handle yourself af-
fects how people around you perceive you. My
parents were instinctive and did things by feel.
They were very supportive and treated me as if
1 were � I almost hate to use the word �
When he was 13, Perlman appearedon the
Ed Sullivan Show and in 158 he toured the U.S.
with the Ed Sullivan Caravan of Stars a troupe
of performers consisting of musicians, dancers,
jugglers and shadowdancers. It was while tour-
ing in the United States that Perlman decided he-
wanted to live here and become an American
citizen. He wasaccepted into the Juilliard School
of Music in New York and studied under
Dorothy Delay and Ivan C.alamian, the best
violin teachers at Juilliard and considered by
many to be the greatest teachers of the age.
In 9tA, at the age of 18, Perlman made his
Carnegie Hall debut and won the prestigious
Leventritt Competition - judged by such
musical luminaries as William Steinberg and
Isaac Stern.
Perlman plays a 1714 Stradivanus (named
after its maker � Antonio Stradivari) which
was once owned by Yehudi Menuhin, another
virtuoso of great renown. There are only ap-
proximately 550 Stradivanus violins in exis-
tence, each of which were named by their maker.
Perlman's was christened "Soil" (pronounced
"Swol"), yet he affectionately refers to it as "my
In a 180 interview with Newsweek
Peariman said. "There are so many factors m
volved in playing the violin. You have to worry
about whether to move the bow slowly or
quickly. Is the bow absolutely straight How
hard do you want to press the bow against the
strings? All of this just involves the right hand.
Then there is the left hand. lust to get a decent
sound can take years. And only then do you start
thinking of the music and developing vour dis-
tinctive style.
"1 trv not to emulate anyone because that's
dangerous he stated, indicating the impor-
tance of remaining an individual Perlman also
avoids focusing Ux much on music in any single
classical genre. "I play everyone he said with-
out a hint of braggadocio, )ust statement of tac t
To imitate another artist or to limit his repertoire
to the music of a number of masters would be
constraining for him. I quickly realized that to
even think in terms of imitation or limits would
be alien to Perlman his is a talent and a will
that knows no bounds.
If media attention is any indication, Perlman
hit supcrstardom around 1980 with a number
media appearances including television ap-
pearances, making the cover of Newsweek, and
being named "Musician of the Year" by Music al
America. 1 lebecame oneol the highest paid clas
sical artists, earning five figures per concert, and
still played more than 100 concerts a year in tin-
United States, Europe and the Ear East
Perlman resides in New York with his wife
Toby and their five children- three of which are
also interested in music.
Perlman will be playing at 8 p.m April

N.C. Shakespeare Festival
teaches through Giobeworks
By Carrie Armstrong
Entertainment Editor
For over 400 years people around the world
have felt the impact of Shakespeare. His work
continues to amaze and entertain despite the
sometimes strange and often confusing Elizabe-
than English.
Teaching Shakespeare in the classrooms has
always been a challenge. Students often find the
language difficult and bothersome. However,
the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival is trying
to change that perception, through the art of
How does the festival contribute? Through
Giobeworks, a 45-minute production of scenes,
monologues, songs and poems from
Shakespeare's most famous works. Giobeworks
iscurrently engaged in a 15-week tour that began
Jan. 29 and will end May 9. The tour is funded by
the N.C. Legislature and performs for high
school students across the Carolinas, in Virginia
and Maryland.
Tour director, Mary Anne Bolick, said
Giobeworks is strictly educational and not for the
general public. The tour performs mainly for
high school juniors and seniors. However, they
also make occasional appearances in different
According to a recent release from NCSF, the
Giobeworks script consists of passages from
Shakespeare's most often studied works, com-
bined with contemporary narration from the
The two-actor cast stay in the same tradi-
tional costumes through out the entire produc-
tion. Afterwards the actors often participate in
classroom visitations where they conduct ques-
tion and answer opportunities related directly to
the material, live theater and professional acting.
Giobeworks provides many students with their
first experience with professional theater and
what it involves.
Giobeworks featured actors are Elizabeth
Slaby and Michael Kamtman. They both have
worked in professional theater around the coun-
try and extensively for the NCSF the past two
seasons. Kamtman toured with Giobeworks last
year and serves as choreographer and fight
captain for a stage combat scene performed bv
the two actors.
Slaby and Kamtman portray many of
Shakespeare's most famous romantic couples
including Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Ladv
Macbeth, Kate and Petruchio and Hamlet and
Ophelia Other characters that are portrayed
include Portia and Shylock, Brutis and Mark
Antony and Valentine and Speed. The prevail-
ing theme of Giobeworks productions is "love"
love of country, duty, honor, personal free-
dom and, of course, the ever popular romantic-
Giobeworks is compiled, edited and di-
rected by the festival's artistic director, Louis
Rackoff. It is the winterspring aspect of the
North Carolina Shakespeare Festival's "Out-
reach Tours" program.
This program has visited scores of high
schools, colleges, universities and community
centers in virtually every N.C. county and in
more than 10 states within the last seven years.
This fall, from October to mid-November, NCSF
will tour a new production of The Comedy of
Errors in five states.
N.C. communities visited by Giobeworks
this spring include Henderson, Winston-Salem,
Kernersville, Lexington, Clemmons, Lau-
nnburg, Gibsonville, High Point, Rocky Mount,
Kenansville, Lumberton, Elizabeth City, Fay
etteville, Hillsborough, Cherryville and
Wadesboro. Giobeworks will also be touring to
partsof South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.

Barefoot' has interesting history
By Stacey Lippincott
Staff Writer
For many ECU students, Barefoot
on the Mall means outdoor bands, food
and a chance to relax before exams.
However, the history behind the festi-
val is much deeper.
Barefoot on the Mall was proposed
in 1979 bv a Rose High School senior,
Laura Lauffer. Lauffer had been chosen
A proposal for a spring festival was part
of her internship.
According to Ken Hammond, ass
ciate director at the Department of
University Unions, Lauffer wanted her
experience to come from ECU. "I asked
Laura to think of something that was
not being done then, and (told her) that
monev was no object
l.auffer's initial proposal was for a
festival that would run from 10 a.m. to
10 p.m featuring four bands, refresh-
ments, crafts and booths from different
student organizations.
According to Hammond, Lauffer
came up with the name "Barefoot on the
Mall" because she wanted the festival to
be something that students could come
to barefoot and relaxed. The first Bare-
foot drew over 2,000 people.
Barefoot's sponsor, the Student
Union, has tried to keep the same gen-
eral format of using main stage per-
formances since the first festival. The
only real change was setting the time of
the festival for noon to 6 p.m.
The Student Union has brought
musical headliners such as Chairman of
the Board, The Wailersand theConnells
to Barefcx)t on the Mall. The year Chair-
man of the Board played, Barefoot had
its largest attendance with more than
6,000. This year, there will again be four
bands, including a rap band, a reggae
band and a progressive band.
The Trinadad Tripoli Steel Band
played the first four years of Barefoot
and will be returning again this year.
"We will also have two soap opera stars
return again this year, since last year it
was a big success Hammond said.
Movies have also been a part of the
tradition of Barefoot. In the past, movies
such as "Animal House" and "Movie
Orgy" were shown. This year the
"Rockv Horror Picture Show" will start
at 8 p.m. and close out the festival,
making its fourth appearance at Bare-
"This is a perfect time for students
to blow off steam at the end of the
semester Student Union President
Ken Drake said. "The festival has
worked so well that UNC-Chapel Hill
World Robotic Boxing, as well as. many other carnival games will be found at
this year's Barefoot on the Mall (Photo by J.D. Whitmire � ECU Photo Lab)
has plans in the future to use our same
idea of a spring festival
Each year, Barefoot on the Mall
serves as a reminder to the members of
the Student Union of Lauffer. Shortly
after the proposal, Lauffer was severely
injured when her car was struck by a
drunk driver. Paralyzed, Lauffer was
unable to attend college.
"Laura came to Barefoot on the
Mall the year following the accident
Hammond said. "It was a very emo-
tional time, because we could see that
Laura had made the connection that this
was her festival, and that brought a
spark to her eyes
Through her creative idea, Laura
Lauffer made Barefoot on the Mall a
reality that is looked forward to every

The stor y ot the blockbuster commercial
hit that they don't want you to see
The Reeboks commercial that first aired
during last Sunday's broadcast of the hit Fox
show The Simpsons sparked a wave of con-
troversy that resulted in the commercial's
being pulled "tor review' by the shoe manu-
facturers advertising department
Now. the story ot thai commercial is a
major NBC mini-series, starring Robert
Mitchum (who somehow found the time lor
this project during a break from his new show
which is called A Family For A Man Named Joe
or something like that) Mitchum will play the
left shoe, and humor columnist Lewis Grizzard
will play the right.
Some higher-ups a! NBC have criticized
this casting decision, saying that Mitchum and
Gnzzard don't have the right physique to play
shoes But Director Foola Round defended his
choice, saying "They have years ot experi-
ence. They wanted to do the parts They work
well together. They look alike But most of all,
they were cheap and they were available "

The Story ot That Reeboks Commercial,

indicative of good ratings that NBC just hado

A delmite thumbs-down to mis confus-
ing, dull film by Swedish director Ingmar
First cf all who ever heard ol a Swedish
film7 Swedish food, maybe, but a Mm7
Second, this film is in Swedish, with
English subtitles Subtitles' It I wanted to
read I d buy a book Let em make the darn
films in English, or at least have the decency
to dub them so we civilized folks could under-
Anyway the film is basically about this
knight who wanders around Sweden during
the Crusades, asking everybody and hisbrother
if there's meaning in life or some junk like that
And he piays this game of chess (that cost
them the one star I was going to give them, I
prefer checkers) with Death Himself No joke
Worst thing, though, is that it's in black
and white Ted Turner obviously hasn't gotten
off his debt- ridden butt long enough to colorize
this film which would at least entirely destroy
its aesthetic value and make it "audience ac-
cessible" to rude know-nothing jerks like me
