Minority enrollment
down throughout
nation's universities
By Valerie Touloumbadjian
Staff Writer
report released by the HCU
Planning and Institutional Re-
sean h sh w s the number of black
students enrolled has been
declining over the last two years.
The number of black students
attending higher education is
decreasing nationally Larry 1.
Smith, the director of minority
affairs said. It is not unique to
It I
Several reasons account tor
this change, according to Smith.
High school does not prepare
students to think in termsof higher
education he said. "Minority
students are tracked into voca
tiona! rather than
training rhev are labelled with
shw learning
I inane ial ruts also represenl
an important t,u tor Her the last
years funds have been cut, espe-
cially under the Reagan admini
stration hesaid As nation lead-
could finance their studies I hose
Students therefore relv more on
financial aid.
Smith said that racism also
accounts tor the decline in enroll
ment oi black students. "There's
been a series of racist incidents
throughout campuses, he said,
mentioning the University ot
Massachusetts and Cornell
University, which had
crossburning. "A significant
number of black students return to
predominantly black institutions
The fact more Mack students
go to black institutions and do not
apply to ECU may be the result ot
other factors. Vivian Bazemore an
ECl senior, said that because ti
nancial aid is available through the
Negro College Fund, and since the
reputations' of black colleges have
improved. more black students feel
obligated to support those institu-
tions. Parrell Griffin, a junior, said
me more
conservative,we that another reason students may
don't h.r. v ess to put into
education Smith said that finan-
cial aits affe ted the minorities
more be ause the ha e the great
est needs He explained that in
terms of economy, most black
students are first-generation col-
lege students and few of them are
from middle class families that
not bechoosing ECU isbecause it is
not known for its academics and its
location is not favorable. There are
H( t .is many opportunities in East
ern orth Carolina as in other re
.�ions with larger cities he said.

Month dedicated to child abuse prevention
By Kim lev Eder
Staff Writer
Gov. Martin has proclaimed
April "Child buse Prevention
Month In a statement issued by
the governor, he said that more
than 45,000 children statewide
were reported as abused and
negle ttl last vear
AccordingtoC harleneGillof
the Pitt ounty Department oi
Social Services, the number of
child abuse and neglect cases m
Greenville and Pit! County has
risen about VC percent in the past
four years.
In 1986, there were $80 inves-
tigated cases of child abuse in
(.reenville and Pittonntvall
said In 1987 the number rose to
587; in 1988 it was647and in 1989
there were 75I1 asesof child abuse
investigated in ireenvilleand Pitt
Gill said a major contributing
factor in the increase of child abuse
cases is that there is significantly
more substance abuse among
parents in recent years.
Gill sud that the decline in the
family is especially rapid and more
quickly noticeable in families
where the parents use crack.
Another factor in the increased
number of child abuse i ases may
be that there is more public a ware
ness. and that more people are
reporting possible abuse, Gill said.
When a person reports a case
where child abuse or neglect is
suspected,Gill said that tirst there
is a screening interview to deter-
mine the scope oi the abuse. Gill
said that about 40 percent of the
reports turn out to be substantial
eases ot abuse.
A social worker from the
I Vpartment of S( vial Sen ices talks
to the person who reported the
abuse to determine if there may be
sufficient grounds tor an investi-
The child is interviewed sepa-
rately, and then the parents and
the rest of the family are inter-
viewed to determine the nature i if
the abuse and what action should
be taken In some cases, such .is
sexual abuse, certain members of
the family may be asked to partici-
pate m psychiatric evaluations
The I Vpartmen t. 4 St k ialServ-
kes is required by law to notify the
district attorney within 24 hours U
they find there is a solid case
oi abuse or neglect.
Alter abuse or neglect is deter-
mined, the social worker works
with the family to set up treatment
programs, treatment may include
individual counseling lor each
member of the family involved,
andor family counseling.
The focus of social services is
to protect the child, Gill said.
However, she said, they try to keep
the child in the family it it is at all
possible.(.ill said that main people
think the child should be taken out
of the home right away, but this is
very traumatic tor the child and
should be avoided it possible.
Gill said that children are only
removed from the home it there is
a high risk that the child will be
abused again, as in (ases of sexual
abuse. She said that sex ial services
will trv to place the child with a
relative tirst it removal is neces-
It no relatives are able to take
the child, then sex ial services takes
custody. They then place the child
ma tester home or perhaps a group
home it it is an older child. Gill
said that social services has any-
where from 100 to 150 children in
custody at all times.
Information is key in organ donations
LCL News Bureau
North Carolina's pool ot po-
tential organ donors could be
increased substantially it those
less informed knew more about
how modern medical science
saves lives with organ transplants.
A study by an ECU researcher
of public attitudes toward volun-
tary donation ot organs has ton nd
that the more educated a person
about transplantation, the more
likely he or she is to be a willing
"Clearly, education appears
to be the key to organ donation,
and therefore transplant success
said the ECU researcher, I r. Avtar
Singh, professor of sociology.

Speaker addresses rape prevention
By Samantha Thompson
Staff Writer
Internationally a i laimed

vent ion I redone Storaska will
teach I� 11 students "l low to Say
No to a Rapist and Survive
Monday nighl in Hendrw Thea-
1(1 has recently paid the

March 20, 1989, the Student
Government Association
approved a $1,300 appropriation
to the Students for Unity and
Awareness tor Storaska to fly first
class from Texas The Students for
Unitv and A wareness are present-
ing the program.
Recruiters of the speaker,Robin
Andrews and Reneeundiff, said
Storaska is worth the high cost
because his lecturing and instruc-
tion methods are useful since "his
book and lectures have saved a lot
of people's lives
Storaska spoke at ECU in
November lHh, when his cost was
only $2,900 per presentation. That
was when hedidn't havean agent
Cundiff said. 'This, he's in big
demand now
Cundiff said in the summer of
1964, Storaska broke upa gang rape
of an 11-year old girl. The incident
changed his life, and he decided it
was time to reevaluate how we
think and approach rape.
Storaska's book and movie,
both titled "How to Say No to a
Rapist and Survive have be-
come sources on rape prevention
for the U.S. Department of De-
fense, the justice Department, the
National Crime Prevention Insti-
tute and law enforcement agen-
cies throughout the world.
As a psychology major,
Storaska is the founder and the
executive director of the National
Organization for Prevention of
Rape and Assault. He has been
involved in rape prevention for

available organs heart, liver,
lungs, kidneys and others, includ-
ing skin with up to 10,lHX) pa-
tients dailv a waiting kid new trans-
plants alone in the nation's medi-
cal centers.
"Indeed, the public is all too
familiar with the appeals for liver,
heart and other organs to save the
lives oi desperate patients Dr.
Smgh said. The appeals fall far
short oi meeting the medical and
human need.
Singh said the impact of edu-
cation upon attitudes concerning
donation of organs "is so strong
that when education is a constant,
even the race differentials in dona-
tion attitudes tend to disappear
His findings suggest that or-
gan procurement efforts be tar-
geted especially at blue collar
workersand rural populations, the
largest segments of potential do-
nors who remain largely unin-
formed about organ transplant
success and the need for "kind
strangers Singh said.
Success of the organ transplant
program depends almost wholly
upon the altruism of so-called
"kind strangers" willing to donate
their organs in order that.others
might live, Singh said. His study-
found "widespread altruism"
among North Carolina citizens
who participated in the study.
"The support for donating
organs to help someone live was
overwhelming, 71 percent he
said. "And even a larger majority
� 91 percent � accepted the idea
of making a request of a grief-
stricken family (for organs of a
deceased person) at the loss of a
loved one he said
"Unfortunately, this valuable
resource remains largely untapped
and unexplored Singh said. He
suggested more research to obtain
a better understanding of what
motivates altruistic response.
"It is astonishing that practi-
cally no stud) has examined the
specific elements in the rural ur-
ban milieus that affect people's
willingness to donate organs
Singh said. He said special focus
should be on meanings and moti-
vations from the perspective of
various socioeconomic groupings
along a rural-urban continuum.
Also, he s,nd, emphasis might
be placed on understanding under-
lying reasons for unwillingness to
donate certain organs such as liver,
skin, pancreas, and even the whole
bodv. These were the organs least
mentioned for donation in re-
sponses in the study.
Dr. Singh presented his find-
ings in a paper before the South-
em Sociological Society in Louis-
ville, Kv. He, however, cautioned
against "generalizing" because the
study was based on data obtained
in a sampling of two groups: edu-
cators and residents of mixed
neighborhoods in both rural and
urban settings. Twenty-seven per
cent of the respondents were black.
He found that overall 54 per
cent were favorable toward organ
donation and only 19 per cent
indicated that they were truly
unlikely to donate organs. Al-
though the survey did not ask
whether likely donorsactually had
signed and witnessed donor cards,
attitude-behavior incongruity has
been reported in several studies
Public opinion surveys have
found that people arc generally
favorable toward organ donation.
"But it is not the same thing as
willingness to take concrete ac-
tion Singh said.
The support tends to drop
quickly and drastically when it
comes to actual donation of one's
ou nora relative'sorgans. Nomore
than 15 percentof the persons who
might qualify as organ donors
actually do so Smgh said.

Fight song changes with times
The tune remains the same, but the lyrics have changed at Boston
College. rhe school's century-old fight song has been revised to reflect
the fact that women are an integral part of the institution. When the
song was written in 1885, Boston was an all-male school
The updated version of "lor Boston" debuted during the football
season at BC, where women now make up more than halt the student
body. The tilth lineol the tirst stanza, whi h used to read tor here men
and their hearts are true, now reads for here all are one and their

Discover the laboratory services
available at Student Health Center
By Suzanne Kellerman
Student Health Center, 757-6794
The American Society of Clinical Pathologist (ASCP),incooperation
with other organizations, is celebrating Medical Laboratory Wek, April
8-14, 1990. The purpose of this celebration is to inform the public of the
important role that laboratory professionals play in health care.
Laboratory professionals comprise the third largest segment of the
medical services industry, rhe ECU Student Health Service Laboratory
employs tour laboratory professionals and offers students an endless
variety of laboratory tests Some tests are done in the Student I lealth
Service Lab and ethers are sent to outside reference labs for completion.
Laboratory professionals make valuable contributions in research
and in the treatment oi illness. I aboratory professionals are the key to
appropriate diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Laboratory tests check the makeup of blood, urine, body fluids, and
tissues tor early warning signs of disease. These tests are performed so
that vour health care provider i .in learn what is taking place inside your
bodv Manv medical conditions begin slowlv without outward
symptoms. I lowever, changes in your blood or body cellscan indicate
the presence of a problem. If the tests are completed early enough,
preventive action can le taken When a condition is more advanced,
tests will aid the health care provider in the diagnosis and the selection
of proper treatment.
These laboratory tests are performed by highly skilled health care
professinals called pamologists, technologists, and technicians. You
may not see them, but they play a critical role in providing you with the
best in health care.

institutions have very few options.
Kids are getting involved in street
life Smith said. The street and
drugs are immediate things that
they perceive they can be
successful at. The reward tor them
is more immediate and it takes
them from theeducation process
I leadded that this phenomenon is
partly due to the fact voung blacks
do not have role models, since the
blacks that succeed tend to move
out of their communities.
The minority students that do
not decide to persue higher educa-
tion usually go straight to the
workforce or opl tor the military
m increased numbers, according
to Smith. Military is one of the
positive options hesatd. To tackle
the problem at the root arid incite
black students logo to college and
come to ECU, he suggests to start
more intervention programs with
public schools. ECU has one of
those programs which brings
groups oi ninth grade students to
the campus over the summer,
giving them experience with the
faculty. The career development
department office also helps them
explore their options, Smith said.
"We actively encourage minority
students to attend FCC There is
no quota he said
The ECU Admissions Office
also recruits in high schools with
large minority populations
according to Smith. Along with 28
other institutions, ECU was also
recently chosen by a federal
program to help minorities get
advanced degrees. The program is
sponsored by the I S. Department
of Housing and Urban
Development and will support the
protect at ECU through a grant to
Janice Faulkner, director ol the
ECU Regional Development
In terms of minority popula-
tion at ECU, Smith said having a
"critical mass was important. He
defined a critical mass as having
enough black students on campus
so thev do not get locked into a
group because they are black.
"ECU students do have options
he said, referring to the large black
organizations such as ABIT and
the Gospel Choir.
Over the last 10 years, the
average total number oi black
students has averaged about 10
percent. In the tall semester 1989,
the number was at 9.9 percent. "I
think our numbers are good. If we
stay at 10 percent, we'll have a
viable community he said, but
added 'Wedefinitelv want more
In terms ol retention, Smith
said ECU retains about 53 percent
oi the black students. The percent-
age is about the same for white
students. "We can do a lot better
he said.
The report shows the number
ot black students enrolled at HCU
has decreased overall by 3.8 per-
cent from 1988 to 1989. the num-
ber ot non-residents has dimin-
ished bv 16.6 percent, a more dras-
tic decline than tor residents: 5
I hi' bla k freshmen profile
shows a decrease ot 2o.(- percent
tor non-residents and 18.6 for resi-
dents from 1988 to 1989. HCU
reached its highest percentage of
black students overall in 1985 with
11.5 percent or 1,620 students.

Nathaniel Mead's Response
1 he problem ol nuclear en-
erg)' today is neither political nor
scientific, but primarily psycho-
logical. Mr Walker's letter is a
classic case ot denial and misin-
1 irst. it is nuclear power un-
deniably represents the greatest
single threat to the health and
safety oi humans. Its dangers are
multiple and immediate: risk ol a
Chernobyl-scale accident in a
populated area, released poison-
ous wastes for which there is no, frequent leaks from
reactors sabotage and the build
ing of atomic bombs by terrorists,
etc Second, the relationship be-
tween nuclear power and warfare
has been well known (but evi-
dently forgotten) since the I960s;
there is in such thing as "peaceful
nuclear development (Example:
After buying a reactor "for peace-
ful purposes" from Canada, India
exploded a nuclear bomb in 174
which contained nuclear material
extracted from this reactor.) Third,
the idea that faUout is exclusively
associated with bomb testing is a
myth; routine releases ot radioac-
tivity from nuclear reactors occur
every dav all around the U S
Fourth, X-raysarea form et ioniz
ing radiation, less powerful than
that emitted by nukes, but never-
theless deadly in repeated (and
often unnecessary) dosages And
finally, the National Academy of
Sciences' PF1R Y report is the most
comprehensive and authoritative
report ever published on nuke
related health risks. In me first BEIR
report(BEIR 1,1972), the Academy
said that the nuclear industry
causes thousands of extra cancer
deaths per year. The new report
raises this original estimate to
hundreds of thousands. The bio
logical effects of radiation are
cuniiilativeovertime. and the risks
actually increase with lower.

By Nathaniel Mead
Editorial Columnist
As we round of I the first quar-
ter of 1990, it seems lear that the
work! is already a very different
place from what it was only .1 year
ago. The revolutionary events in
Eastern Europe, the U.S.S R and
China, will go down in history as
monumental changes toward a
new world politic. But there are
also many more subtle though no
less important changes taking place
throughout the world. rhese
changes arc being wrought by
grassroots activists who increas-
ingly represent today's leading
political forcefighting for economic
justice, environmental preserva-
tion, and the protection ol human
life and well-being.
In neighborhoods and commu-
nities, around the world, people
are coming together to challenge
the forces thai endanger our planet
And denigrate our sense of human
dignity. They form a ragtag front
line in the worldwide struggle to
put an end to povert) and ecologi-
cal mayhem. And though widely
diverse in origins, these local ac-
tivists share a common interest in
economic prosperity without sac-
rificing their health or the pros-
pects tor their children They are
redefining the terms "develop-
ment" and "progress
The conventional view ol
"development" generally means
subsidies to selected institutions
orgroups,su( h as the agribusiness

as a device for taking money from

Nathaniel Mead's Response
The problem oi nuclear en-
ergy today is neither political nor
scientific, but primarily psycho-
logical. Mr. Walker's letter is a
classic case oi denial and misin-
First, it is nuclear power un-
deniably represents the greatest
single threat to the health and
safety of humans. Its dangers are
multiple and immediate: risk of a
Chernobyl-scale accident in a
populated area, release of poison-
ous wastes for which there is no
safe disposal, frequent leaks from
reactors, sabotage and the build-
ing of atomic bombs bv terrorists,
etc.v Second, the relationship be-
tween nuclear power and warfare
has been well known (but evi-
dently forgotten) since the 1960's;
there is no such thing as "peaceful
nuclear development (Example:
After buying a reactor "for peace-
ful purposes" from Canada, India
exploded a nuclear bomb in 1974
which contained nuclear material
extracted from thisreactor.)Third,
the idea that fallout is exclusively
associated with bomb testing is a
myth; routine releases of radioac-
tivity from nuclear reactors occur
every dav all around the U v;
Fourth, X-rays are a form of ioniz-
ing radiation, less powerful than
that emitted bv nukes, but never-
theless deadly in repeated 'and
often unnecessary) dosages And
finally, the National Academy of
Sciences' BFIR V report is the most
comprehensive and authoritative
report ever published on nuke
related health risks. In the first BEIR
report(BEIR 1,1972), the Academy
said that the nuclear industry
causes thousands of extra cancer
deaths per year. The new report
raises this original estimate to
hundreds of thousands The bio-
logical effects of radiation are
cumulative over time, and the risks
actually increase with lower.

South African Outcome: crucial to the world
Over the past several months,
the people ot the world have
matched a spectacular drama

taken out of office with his hard-
line stance in favor ot Apartheid
We've seen the installation of a
moderate president, 1V.I Klerk
and the manumission ot the black
majority's favored son, Nelson
Mandela after 27 years of impris-
onment However, we should not

hard battle against worldwide
forces ot greediness, selfishness,
racism and oppression I would
like to devote this letter to the
examination of "The South Afri-
can Dilemma which really is a
worldwide dilemma.
Several hundred years ago.
some power hungry British rulers
decided that they were going to
build an empire that "never sets.
At one time, this included the
Americas, Africa, Canada. India
and portions of land and islands
in the other continents. Naturally,
the first nations to move for and
obtain their independence were
the "non-colored nations ot
America and Canada. In time, the
people of India obtained their
independence through intensive
pressure and determination un
der the leadership (if Mohatma
Ghandi Around the same time a
tew African nations began to gam
independence as well This was
perhaps because the British rulers
recognized that a worldwide
empire was expensive Therefore,
they sought to selectively and care-
fully rid themselves of some ot
their overseas liabilities It is im-
portant at this point todistinguish
between their t jctics where na-
tions of color are concerned. India
might have suffered the same tate
as South Atnca except t,�r two fac-
tors: The Indians were so adamant
in their culture and belief system
that they could not be effectively
"Chnstiamed " It is a known the-
ory of political thought that reli-
gion can be used as a "normative
control. In other words, it is, a
means bv which people can be
controlled and manipulated with
out the use of force and this can
take a long time to Ao. Also, the
people ot India were able to main
tain a sense oi unity because ot the
responsible leadership of Malta tma

sisted by their age old policy of

found out and are continuing to
see that many of these measures
can only backfire and that they

failed to destroy.
Consequently, the people of
India had to be granted total inde-
pendence and self-determination.
One would note the fact that there
were no hostilities or widespread
violence after this occured which
refutes the age old claim that ma-
jority rule is necessarily unfair.
I lowever, the British had more
success in using these tactics in the
African nations. If one would Study
the development of the various
nations ol Africa under the control
of the British, one would detect a
long track record of deception and
exploitation. lite British policy in
Atnca included several kev com-
ponents: U They did not maintain
these colonies, protectorates, or ter-
ritories bv outright force Rather
they established a local govern-
ment system that was favorable to

when they are not, there's some-
thing wrong in the nation.
This discourse on the struc-
ture of tho British Empire and the
oppression of people of color,
leads us to the question of what
do we do now? There are several
things that we can and must do:
Hirst of all, we must recognize the
problems and the situation that
exist in South Africa. The reason
that these people do not want to
give up con trolis that there is a lot
at stake Unlike many of the other
African nations that have been
granted their autonomy, the
Republic of South Africa is rich in
diamonds minerals, and materi-
als needed tor nuclear w eaponry.

Pr Patrick C Walsh, director
ot the lohns Hopkins Hospital

ruesday that the treatment and
surgery performed on the senator

thesda Naval Hospital "was a
model cast- from A toZ
Walsh the tirst w itness
called b) I S .attorneys in defense
f the $3.5 million malpractice suit
filed b Priscilla Sherk last The
trial now is in its fourth week,
w'ith Mrs East's attorneys near
tl end of their part of the case.
Mrs and her attorneys
claim Navy doctors failed toprop-
erly and timely diagnose the
senator's In pothyroidism, which
they sa led him into a deep de-
pression that resulted in his sin
cide at his Greenville. N.C, home
in lune 1986.

neys acknowledge that John Easfs

Walsh said the Navy doctor
properly diagnosed the problem,
properly consulted with the
m nator's internist before surgery,
then treated him well within stan-
d irdsol medical tare and recom-
mended proper aftercare as well.
"This is a model record said
Walsh, who reviewed hundreds

mented thesurgerv accurately and
reviewed lab data.
"He also wrote notes on his
discussion of the consent form
with the patient Walsh said. "He
did far more than most people
would ever do
Walsh also testified that
O'Connell "had no reason" to
suspect ma the senator had hypo-
thvroidism based on his medical
history and no reason, given the
pressures on phvsicians not to
over-test patients, to order a liver
function test to determine whether
he had the disease.
When plaintiff 's attorney Terri
A.Steinhaus pressed that point on
cross-examination, Walsh aid
hvpothyroidism "is a tncky diag-
nosis" that could easily be over-
looked bv physicians who don't
deal with the disease regularly.
"You only sec what you look
for, and you only look for what
you know Walsh said.
Another witness, Calvin
Kirven, a Raleigh, N.C, business-
man who was a top aide to East,
testified that the senator was ex-
tremely active politically during
his first years in office, but that
East "deteriorated" during his
bout with the disease.
After treatment at Bethesda in
the summer of 1986, Kirven said,
the senator's concentration level
was "totally diminished
"He had handled a lot after
his polio, his law degree, his teach-

Broadway shows
scheduled for N.C.
Officials with the N.C. School of
the Arts have sealed a deal with
producer Ron Kumin that will
bring maior theater productions
to the Stevens Center The shows
would play at the center in prepa-
ration for opening on Broadway
in New York.
"I'm looking forward to a
community that really wants this
Kumin said Tuesday during a
news conference at the theater.
At the same time, Philip Nel-
son, the school's interim chancel-
lor .announced that thearts school
has commitments of almost
$200,000 to ret- . the theater's
debts, which inch de $104,000 in
loans and a bill for $247,000 in
back taxes
Nelson said that the school
has decided not to continue to
pursue its legal dispute with the
county fa collector over the back
taxes, which stemmed from the
financing that backed the
building's renovation in 1983.
Kumin, who produced seven
performances over two years at
Duke University before he re-
signed in August, said that he
expects to draw huge crowds to
the theater.
The Duke series turned a
profit, and Kumin said that he
would expect to do the same in
Winston-Salem, perhaps as soon
as the second year.
Kumin said that a typical
performance would cost about
$180,000 to produce and run about
16 nights, drawing an audience
from across the state. Tickets
would cost $18-26. With 1380seats
in the house, ticket sales could
total more than $400,000.
Kumin said that he has al-
ready discussed his plans with 10
producers in New York, includ-
ing Marvin Krause, who has nine

Africa (AP) Nine blacks were
killed, including seven in one at
tack, as violente again erupted
throughout South Africa's troub-
led Natal province, police reported
About 41X1 people have died
in recent weeks in black factional
fighting, most of it centered in
Natal, a southeastern province.
Police said assailants near
Pietermantzburg placed a barn
cade in front of a taxi van carrying
19 people, then opened fire, kill-
ing seven people and wounding
three. The police gave no motive
for the attack.
Elsewhere in Natal, a youth
died when officers opened fire
with shotguns to disperse a mob,
police said. In a sepai ate attack, a
person was burned I death when
a car was set alight
Police reported numerous
clashes in which they used bird-
shot, rubber bullets, tear gas and
attack dogs to break up stone-
throwing crowds in Natal and
other parts of the country.
The main combatants in Na-
tal are supporters of the African
National Congress guerrilla move
ment and Inkatha, a relatively
conservative Zulu organization.
The fighting has claimed some
4,000 lives since 1986.
Police said they did not ex-
pect any attacks on whites Wed-
nesday despite the release of a
pamphlet that urged blacks to "kill
all the white racists" on April 10.

The two men played songs
about hard times and good times.
Many of the songs were written
by Piephoff himself. Piephoff also
used the works of other country
folksingers, like John Denver and
Doc Watson.
Picphoff's creative writing
ability shows up in his songs,
which surpass a lyric value and
are actual poetry. The titles are
often humorous, like "Molly Jane,

However, Picphoff's voice
was not equal to his songwriting.
Although his voice was pleasant,
it failed to capture the essence of
the good and bad times about
which he sang. His instrumental
work was good, and the instru-

exceptional. It was interesting

their support for live music last Friday. Big crowds, big fun and good
music at the four main music clubs in town made for a pretty stellar
More upcoming festivities include Barefoot on the Mall April 19.
Should be great as usual. And that night, starting around 9:30 there's an
Amnesty International benefit at the New Deli featuring In Limbo and
Subtle Distinction. So after a day of free, sel f-scrving decadence you can
pay a few bucks for more fun and a good cause.
The new Dash Rip Rock album is here along with great blues from
John lee Hooker and a new album from Hetch Hetchy. There should be
a N.C. compilation album out soon from Mammoth Records which will
include Marv On The Dash, Dillon Fence and others. The live Snatches
of Pink should be here any day. A Sonics tribute album, Chapter Two
and new Dead Milkmen arc coming up, too. The Dead Milkmen have
a single out called Methodist Coloring Book' and it's one of their best
lyrical ventures yet. "God doesn't like people who color outside the
lines the band sings.

Saturday's departure ol baskel
ball coach Inn Valvano, the task
of raising money tor North Caro-
lina State's athletic scholarships
got much harder, making( harlie
Bryant's job e en more difficult.
"It's mv job to try to put the
pieces back together said Bryant,
Mate athletic booster organiza-
tion, the student Aid Association
or Wolfpacklub.
Bryant said he could not esti-
mate, in roll-call numbers and
donated dollars, how much of a
drain Valvano'sdismissal would
cause on the club's 1 1,000 mem
"I can only guess that it'll be
substantial Bryant said. "Jim
was a very popular individual in
the state, as well as being a very
successful coach tor the school. A
lot oi our members are angry. A
lot of them took it personally.
"The thing I've got to tell our
people and it's something im
himself said right away Saturday
� is that the school is bigger and
more important than any indi-
vidual or group of individuals.
The people who care about N.C.
Mate will need to pull together,
regardless ol how they felt about
what happened Saturday
Bryant said the biggest chal-
lenge would not be m the 1990
fund-raising campaign, which is
almost completed. He said the
Wolfpack Club had almost reached
ii ol $4 million
The problem is going to be in
the fund-raising campaign tor the
'lM)-ul school year he said. "Our
goal will be$4 million again, but I
would be kidding myseli it 1 didn't
admit it might to bo more difficult
to reach
Bryant said the club would
honor a part ol its contract to Val-
vano that ensures the former coach
$250,000 in a five-year annuity
established in b's.
The university also will pa)
Valvano $238,509 from athletic

weekend. The two losses dropped
their record to 5-5 overall.

The game with the Wolfpack
was no different. Bv halftime the

The Pirates were missing sev-

both games which fatigued them
and caused people to play posi-

At H. H)a m I founo! m sell in
line with other volunteers waiting
to find out what m assignment
was for the il.iv Honestly, I
thought 1 was going to be a timer
or helper in an event But i hen I
told the lady m name and she
said i was a buddy. I ho a me a
little nervous
It's not that Ididn't want to do
it it was just thai I neei had
worked with Special Olympians
before. But 1 di idtxl to go along
and give it a try.
As a ' buddy, my joh u .is to
help the teacher from the school
that the athlete uas from and in-
sure that each ot them made their
assigned event.
1 was introduced to m oh m
pian, and nowm friend, Pirn He
was a 29 vear old participant and
he competed in the long jump and
the hV meter run asa reprosonta
live from Pitlommunitxil
As I ;� to know I im, ami
some of his friends mv nervous
nesswentavva) moniqun kl than
it appeared
When we finallv went to the
long jump, all I did wasencoui
himtodohisbest Really wanted
him to win. It was almost like I
was competing.
But before he started his prac-
tice jump, he leaned over to me
and said, "Even it I don't win, at
least I tried mv hardest 1 was
totally shocked. In all of the years
I 'voplaved sports, never once have
I heard that phrase come from a
teammate or a competitor.
Well, I im finished third in his
heat of the long jump. 1 was happy
for him because I knew that he did
Ins best
We ate lunch; then it was time
tor him to enter in the 100-meter
run As he Stood there, I asked him
w here he wanted me to stand. I le
said the finish line because he was
going to win. So 1 walked to the
finish line, and sure enough, lie
t hie tit the most enjovable
times ol the day was to watch each
ol the athletes receive awards.
Ribbons were given out to each of
the contestants following each
event. As Inn stood on the plat-
form and took his first place rib
bon, I saw a feeling of pride that
just cannot beexplained in words,
i "n the bottom each of the
ribbons, were written tour words
that symbolized the meaning ot
the competition skill, courage,
slwring and joy. Now I under
land w hat those words mean
I congratulate 1 im and all ol
the other Special Olympians
you brought out a feeling in me
that 1 had never experienced be
tore so here's to you, 1 im.
