"It's a difficult process' said
Spalding "It's fun. but fairly
complicated
"Students act as diplomats,
and talk about how their country
feels she said. First, members
acting as delegates work to form
an agenda, then debate on issues,
negotiate with other delegates, and
make resolutions on the issues,
Spalding said.
She added that the hard part is
negotiating. Delegates must play
their role realistically, for example,
students acting as delegates from
Iran would have a tough time
negotiating with students acting
as American delegates. Spalding
said that tor students to act their
roles out well, they must prepare
by researching their assigned
country's political characteristics.
Wo study the nation's inter-
nal politics, their relations with
other countries and their attitude

ns or whales were being
found dead on Fast Coast beaches.
Thedeaths were linked with para-
lytic shellfish poisoning that
probably passed up the food chain
through tainted mackerel. The
mackerel were infused with toxic
residues originating in "red tide
a reddish discoloration of seawa-
ter caused by huge blooms (if red
algae. Meanwhile, thousands of
mullet and an entire population of
scallops died from red tide along
our Carolina coast an algal over-
growth fed by a combination of
fertilizers, human sludge, and
sunny weather. As the red bloom
died and decayed, it sapped
enormous amounts oi oxygen
from the water, killing fish and
other creatures.
In the three years since
then, the world news has brought
us pictures of massive plagues of
dying dolphins, porpoises, seals
and sea lions along our shores as
well as those in Europe. Many of
these cases have been linked to
weakened immunitv which made
the animals prone to infection. In
the case of the dolphin deaths, ac-
cording to Robert Schoelkopf,
director oi New Jersey's Marino
Mammal Stranding Center, pol-
lution was likely to bo "a clear
causal factor
The demise of the great
ocean mammals, inextricably
linked to an environment ravaged
by reckless industrialism, has
sparked a horrifying realization:
the oceans are dying. The cause.
obviously, is that our effluent
society is living beyond its means
Industrial pollution is growing at
an estimated 4 5 percent per vear
three times the rate of population
growth. Most of this waste oil,
detergents, pesticides, PCBs, dyes,
lead, mercury and raw sewage
end sup in our coastalones With
thedevelopod world unconsciona-
bly spewing its effluents into the
very rivers that teed coastal wa-
ters, the future of oceanic life is
rapidlv being eroded
A third ot all U S. estuaries
are closed toshellfishingnowdue
to pollution an $80 million an-
nual toss to commercial fisheries).
The Hudson River-Raritan Estu-
ary and Delaware Estuary, both
ringed by heavy industry and
dense populations, are open cess-
pools Chesapeake Bay,oneof the
world's richest ecosystems, still
provides crabs, oysters, and fish
in abundance but tew fishermen

are its waters by sewage, phos-
phates, ammonium, pesticides and
other assorted wastes. Unless we
act fast, our very own Albemarle-
Pamhco Estuary, second largest
in the US. after the Chesapeake,
may soon follow suit
The destruction oi ocean
habitat is most serious m coastal
areas where human settlement
encroaches on cornucopian ma-
rine ecosystems. Over one halt of
the U.S. population lives within
0 milesof the ocean shores; w'lthin
a few vears. that figure lsexpected
to be 75 percent But while we re
largely a coastal people, our aware-
ness and understanding ot the
planet's waters is profoundly
myopic. Though its surface is over
70 percent seawater, we call the
planet "Earth" -unconscious tes-
timony to a landlocked chauvin-
ism that views the oceans largely
as a source of recreation and ex-
ploitation.
Ocean abuse takes many
forms: thedumping of nuclear and
toxic wastes; oil spills and indus-
trial effluence; the sea-bed disrur-
bancecaused by deep-sea mineral
mining; and the destruction of
coastal ecosystems from estuaries
to mangroves to coral reefs. The
dimensions of abuse are too com-
plex to cover in a single article, but
we can at least dispel some popu
lar myths.
Myth �1: The ocean has an
infinite ability to absorb pollut-
ants and regenerate This bottom-
less-pit notion is invoked to jus
tify the dumping wastes far out at
sea. And it is true to an extent.
oceans can dilute man's poison-
ous refuse by dispersing them over
hundreds of square miles via the
motion of waves, currents, tides,
deepsea eddies and "storms
caused by underwater earth-
quakes and volcanoes. But the
very area King closest to human
contatct are those that are biologi
cally most active. And any contact
with the food chain is a risk
Simply put. the Earth is a sphere,
not an endless plain; the sea is
vast, but not infinite

know with certainty at what point
we begin reaching natural thresh-
olds of sustainable loss. Further,
both drilling find -mining upset -

life and ultimately produce ugh
oil slicks which are a perpetual
deadly menace to seabirds and
many other marine creatures.

of what is and what is not First
Amendment protection of a free
press.
I know that these students lack
the personal abilities anil profes-
sional skills to succeed in the media
because 1 am both a human being
and a journalist. I am also the
husband of the faculty member
slandered in the WZMB broad-
ist Atti r reading last Tuesday's
editorial and the interviews ol the
two students in The Daily Reflector,
I have come to the conclusion it is
time to speak
As a journalist and broad-
(aster, I refuse to embrace the two
fired students as fellow colleagues.
Their intent was malicious. Their
actions were unethical and illegal.
Their stile defense rests on a juve-
nile attempt to be "funny Thev
are not broadcasters. They are
merely children, nothing more.
As a man, I refuse to accept
these two as competent members
of mv gender. It is their insensitiv-
ltv and disrespect for others that
perpetuate sexism and racism in
our society. Typically oi such
people, they are so quick to offer
an apology for their actions but fail
to understand the insincerity and
hypocrisy for such an apology.
You can apologize for what
you do, but you cannot apologize
for who vou are. Do more than say
you're sorry; change the attitudes
that motivate such offensive be-
havior. A sincere apology is the
product of guilt and shame, not
ignorance.
As for their rights as broad-
casters, the Constitution does pro-
tect our nation's press from unfair
censorship. But "free press" divs
not mean "unrestricted They
crossed the line.
It is unlawful to record or
broadcast a telephone conversa-
tion without the consent of every-
one on the line. It is more than just
a mere violation of an obscure
FCC policy. It's called wiretap-
ping. It is a federal and state of-
fense.
The two students admit the
were ust trying to be funny. Their
phone call to the English depart-
ment to inquire whether a faculty
member would teach in the nude
was meant as a practical joke. l-et
us examine whether this is actu-
ally humorous.
If the students had not broad-
cast the telephone conversation,
their call might be considered a
practical joke, a prank � some-
thing that children do when first
exploring the mysteries and ano-
nymity of the telephone. Callers
who invade the privacy of others
are exactly whv there are laws
against prank, obscene and har-
assing phone calls.
Furthermore, broadcasting
the phone call won't gain them
federal protection under the First
Amendment. There are no pro-
tections for a prank call, as there
are no protections for a bomb
threat that is just a joke.
Their broadcast was not
humorous. It was slanderous. By
inquiring whether the faculty-
member would teach in the nude,
it presupposes it is oi her charac-
ter and nature to do so. Such a
presupposition is in fact an accu-
sation, one that is both false and
injuries to her person and to her
professional reputation. Itiscalled
slander and sexual harassment. It
is exactly for these reasons that
our judicial system provides a
recourse � civil court.
The two students are not only
accountable, but so is the person
or persons who holds the license
for the radio station, In this case,
Fast Carolina University isthesole
licensee. The university, along
with its representatives on-air (the
students), is responsible for the
programming content.
The Constitution, the FCC,
and state and federal law wisely
make no distinction between
commercial, educational and reli-
gious braodcasting. A student has
no more right to break the law in
the name of education, than does
a TV minister in the name of God.
Jim Bakker used the airwaves to
commit every singlecount of fraud
for which he was charged, tried
and convicted. In the end he was
hiding under a couch in fear of
invisible animals, but never once
did he cloak himself in the First
Amendment, so assured of its
protection against responsibility.
Is it possible that these1 students
are about to graduate and know
so little about the profession they
hope to enter1
And so. should the two stu-
dents have been fired1 What
should employers do with em-
ployees who place them in jeop-
ardy of civil and criminal prose-
cution?
Furthermore, what should a
state university do with students
who show such total disregard for
faculty members, disregard for
campus rules, disregard for state
and federal laws, disregard for
campus values, and disregard for
the ethical ard professional codes
that surely were taught in their
broadcasting classes?
There has been no personal
vendetta in punishing these stu-
dents. So far, the university, as an
employer of such individuals, has
done what it should. But these
two remain students as well. They
should be punished asall students
have been when laws are broken.
As a human being, a husband
and a journalist, it is my hope that
these two students are nailed to
the same wall on which they had
hoped to hang ECU diplomas. My
compassion is reserved for the
innocent.

As I was working on a projet t

came up and asked me to leave
because 1 was not working on a
project for a business course 1 then
asked the other aide where the
other terminal locations were He
told me that there were two that

The East Carolinian. April 17.1990 5
Animal research isn't justified
To the editor: mass immunization programs did
All school year, a misleading not speed the descent of the death
poster has been displayed in the rates. In fact, several of the immu-
Biology Building which shows nization programs actually spread
people protesting animal research the diseases they were supposed
and reads "Thanks to animal re- to prevent. The fact is, animal re-
search, they'll be able to protest
20.8 years longer This poster was
made by the Foundation for Bi-
omedical Research (FBR) � an
organization that represents the
animal research community and
defends animal research. In this
poster, the FBR quotes deceptive,
U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services figures that claim
credit for far more than the facts
warrant.
The increase in the life expec-
tancy of Americans is due mainlv
to the decrease in mortality rates
from infectious diseases. A graph
of such rates were falling precipi-
tously and were already at rela-
tively low levels before animal
research began in earnest. Even
Ocean
,md raises three basic issues. First,
we will have to stop using the
ocean as an "infinite dumping
ground. This first area is probably
the one where we can each have
the most immediate impact in our
everday lives. For example, recycle
your trash; and if you buy a six-
pack, cut the plastic holder before
throwing it out. Second, we need
to reshape the patterns of indus-
try so that toxic and non-de-
gradable wastes are produced in
smaller volume, and to implement
methods of managing that smaller
volume's full cycle. And third, we
need to impose constraint in what
search has played little, if any, role
in savinghumanity from infectious
diseases.
The reasoning employed by
the animal researchers and their
apologists in deriving the "fact"
headlining their poster seems to be
that if something good has hap-
pened, and if animal research was
involved in any way, shape, or
form,regardlessofwhctheritcamc
in after the fact, then animal re-
search deserves all of the credit.
The fallacy of such logic is mani-
fest
Credit for our increased life
expectancy rightly belongs to nine-
teenth century social reformers in
England, such as the great Jeremy
Bentham, who around 1850 dis-
continued from page 4
we take out of the ocean�we must
learn to respect the marine world's
integrity by practicing sustainable
ocean use.
Our affluent way of life is
stress the ocean's capacity to ab-
sorb pollutants, much less recover
its once pristine and bountiful
waters. Beyond international re-
solve, stringent legislation and
enforcement, we need an informed
and personalized awareness of the
ocean's limits�and of the conse-
quences of exceeding those limits.
� This is the first of a three-
part series in honor of Earth D.
Next: Saving the Rainforests
covered that infectious diseases
occurred in higher concentration
in areas with poor sanitation.
These reformers then embarked
on campaigns to improve sanita-
tion in both England and the U.S.
These campaigns � not animal
research�brought about the bulk
of the 20.8 years of increased life
expectancy.
In closing, 1 just want to add
one thought. The standard line of
defense offered by vivisectionist
apologists is that the ends justify
the means. Before accepting this
convenient reasoning, ask your-
self if the outrage you feel about
the human research conducted by
the Nazis in the 1940s � which
was justified with the same ra-
tionale� is applicable to the ani-
mal holocaust of today.

America is over consuming its

The East Carolinian April 17, 1990 7

Although the United States is
still the most productive and af-
fluent nation in the world, we are
rapidl) losing our edge over other
nations, because we "save too little
ind consume too much sns a
faculty member in the ECU School

unvntl) bleak economic si tuation,

�i dot lsu'ii sciences at ECU.

mi lull ist rial plants and equipment,
research and development, and
technical education tor a well-
trained labor force he said
Because oi low saving and
investment rates, output per per-
son in U.S. businesses has re-
tined very low, as compared to
many other nations, especially
West i lermany and fapan. ! his
i � end portends a dismal economic

Mar! n he added
( ailati explain d that the trend
' v. productivity growth must

States is to maintain its economic
and political leadership among the
nations ol the world.
'Government and private
industry have to join hands to
regain America's leadership, he
said Our government must cut
the enormous budget deficit,
stimulate national savings and
encourage investmenl in civilian
research And development. Busi-
nesses must change their manage-
ment styles and do all they can to
increase productivity and eco-
nomic efficiency in (heir opera
tions
For greater productivity, he
recommends that companies de-
velop their "human capital"
through technical training and
skills development programs, in-
stall technologically innovative
equipment and improve their
workplace facilities.
Unlike man economists, Gu-
lati does not view the l S. trade
detuit as the primary cause oi the
nation's economic woes.
"Theextraordinary use in the
U.S. trade deficit since 1981 and
the consequent shift in its position
from the world's largest creditor
to the largest debtor has exagger-
ated the association of America's
lagging competitiveness with the
trade deficit he said. "The U.S
trade deficit is only the symptom
oi America's declining competi
tiveness. What the trade deficit
represents, in essence, is a U.S.
economy thai has been living
beyond its means

Gulati otters tour ways the
economic health of a nation can be
gauged: labor productivity, real
wage growth, real returnson capi-
tal employed in industry, and

"U.S. performance in all these
areas has been dismal, he said.
At the end of World War II. the
U.S. Gross National Product rep
resented over one-third of the
world's GNP; today it represents
only one-fifth
Gulati noted that the United
States is now 'more sensitive to
changes in the international mar
ket place.
"Our dependence upon tor

The most surprising finding,
, irdii t( � irtffith, is that the
C from the co,ist, had less
� i do with seafood consumption
than whether they lived m a rural
� r urban area
Eating habits for flu- consum-
ers in the rural inland areas
rhanged most often dueto changes
in the family su h as marriage or
the birth ot children. Consumers
in i oast a I rural and urban areas
ind in inland urban areas changed
their eating habits for health rea-
sons or at the advice oi friends or

Cooking styles and seafood
preferences showed some differ-

whites, there was less tendency to
fry foods. Fresh fish fillets, shell-
fish, frozen processed fish and
imitation seafood products were
favored more by whites than nun

Global warming to

WASHINGTON (AP)
President bush will ask a 17 na
tion conference this week to ex-
amine the economic impact ot
global warming, but the admini-
stration plans toargueit'stooearly
to propose specific measures to
deal with the problem officials
saw
The White House's cautious
approach in developing responses
to global warming is expected to
unleash renewed criticism from
some European countries that the
United States is tailing to provide
leadership in dealing with the so-
called greenhouse" effect.
The Bush administration has
maintained that while there is
widespread agreement that man-
made pollutants are causing the
earth to become warmer, there
remain too many unanswered
questions to warrant pollution
controls that could have wide
spread economic implications.
The president is hosting a
White House conference on the
greenhouse effect on Today, just
davs before nexl Sunday's Earth
Day observance During his T'ss
campaign. Bush said sik h a con-
ference was a lop pnoritv and

Senior Bush ad viserssnd they
hoped the conference would for
the first time give equal weight to
economic as well asenvironmental
issues related to global warming.
"We hope it will raise the level
ot debate on the science and
economics of global change said
Michael Boskin, chairman ot the
president's Council of Economic
Advisers, who will ho one of tho
three conference CO chairmen.
Administration officials cau-
tioned in briefings with reporters
that the gathering is not intended
to produce any blueprint for deal-
ing with global warming. Instead,
the officials said the administra-
tion will emphasize the need for
further scientific studies and in-
corporating the economic issues
involved.
1 ast week, the president's
chief science adviser, Allen Brom-
ley, criticized those who advocate
"slam-dunk solutions" to global
warming. He said too many scien-
tific and economic uncertainties
remain to map out specific meas-

Solar power industry attracts attention
By John Yatikey
Gannett Ngwj Service
FREDERICK, Md. Alter
struggling through a dark age for
the past decade the solar power
industry is attracting new atten-
tion.
"We're no longer a novelty
technology, "said tohn Goldsmith,
a vice president with Rockville,
Md -based Solarex. "Events are
pushing us into the center of the
energy picture. "
As the I arth Day celebration
coming up April 22 focuses the
nation'sattention on conservation,
solar power ad vocates are touting
breakthroughs, lobbying harder
for research money and scram-
bling to sell the public on their
technology.
The kev to the renewed inter-
est in solar power is its plummet-
ing production costs Twenty years
ago a watt of solar power cost
about $500 to produce Today it's
down to about $5 a watt. Standard
utility power costs about halt that.
"We've still got a way to go.
especially with respect to cost.
Goldsmith said. "But the closer
we get to standard power costs,
the more people are starting to
look at us
With the promise of clean and
affordable power, industry execu-
tives and energy experts alike
predict that within a decade or
two, solar plants could make sig-
nificant contributi ns to the
nation's electricity supply.
Hope for solar power springs
from two rapidly evol tech
nologies:
�Solar thermal power, which
utilizes mirrors to boil w u ior
huge steam-engine-like turbines.
� Photovoltaics, the process
of turning sunlight directly into
electricity.
Sunlight is made ol photons
and when the photons tnke a
photovoltaic or solar panel, they
knock loose some ol the panel's
electrons creating an electrical
hold.
Fifteen years ago, a the
I nited States faced an energy cri-
sis, the federal government began
pouring money into these tech-
nologies, and companies like So-
larex sprouted Many of the com-
panies were experimental
branches of oil companies.
Once the energy crisis ended
and President Reagan took office,

Schools and supplies scarce after invasion
By Keith Goldschmidt
Gannett News Service
PANAMA CITY, Panama �
The learning comes hard. The U.S.
invasion has left thousands of
children with no place to go to
school. Some schools have been
converted to refugee centers.
Others were stripped of desks,
chairs, floors, virtuallveverything.
Residents from Chorillo, one
oi Panama City's poorest barrios,
were especially hard hit. Most of
their homes were blasted by shell-
tire or burned-out by vengeful
Noriega troops. They lost all their
belongings.
Among the few structures left
are Our Lady of Fatima Roman
Catholic Church and the Republic
ot el Salvador School, home to 139
(. horillo refugees who are fed once
a day by church volunteers.
School, church and Red Cross
officials are working to put the
building back into shape for
classes.
Meanwhile, the school's refu-
gee supervisor, Abel Quiroz, has
persuaded most parents to send
their children lo another school
regardless of clothing or books.
What's in their heads is more
important than what's on their
backs he says.
ButGrizetda BelHdo, .savs
none of her five children is attend-
ing school "because they don't
have uniforms She earned I liv-
ing hawking beer and cigarettes
on the street in Chorillo before the
invasion, but hasn't worked since
then.
In some ways, savs Bernardo
Munoz, director of the Red Cross-
nin camp, refugee life is good for
some students.

But even before many confer-

trom several European countries
complained about the Bush
administration's emphasis on
further research and its refusal CO
discuss specific action plans to deal
with the greenhouse issue.
'Some delegates will advo-

Companies like Solarex de-
pend heavily on the diffuse con-
sumer market, which has been
growing between 13 and 20 per-
cent a year and accounts for one-
third of the industry's sales.
Solarex h.i been paying its
huge research bills by selling solar
panels for boats, recreation ve-
hicles, remote .ommunications
centers and other household prod-
ucts, such as pocket calculators.
The calculators are selling at the
rate of 1 million a vear.
And with a little imagination,
solar cellscan prove useful almost
anywhere.
Some companies have gone
so far as to sell such products as
solar-powered blenders for Mar-
garitas on the beach
Solarex envisions supplying
cells for an array of new products
such as work sheds where tools
are all solar-p wered, street lamps
fueled by overhead panels and
cars with roof-mounted units to
supply electrical systems.

Since January, about 3,500
Chorillo residents have lived miles
away in a cavernous former air-
plane hangar.
School buses arrive at 6 a.m.
to take kids to the main bus termi-
nal downtown and, from there, to
schools around the city.
To help the Chorillo children
fit in with students from less rav-
aged areas, "we handed out more
than 1,000 school uniforms
Munoz said. Books, writing pads
and pencils have been donated,
and a shoe company is giving
shoes to all the camp's residents.
The refugee camp's 2-to-5-
year olds have preschool classes
in a comer of the hangar that bears
a plaque saying, "Labor and ma-
terials donated by 110 Civil Engi-
neer Squadron, Battle Creek,

"We're as well-supplied as
many other prcschools in Pan-
ama says teacher Yolanda de
Wellington. "Today, I'm trying to
borrow a VCR so we can show
them 'Snow White' and a Tom
and Jerry' tomorrow If that fails,
she says, she can fall back on hand
puppets. Other schools are less
fortunate.
Nicholas Facheco School is
shut tight, its doors and windows
barred. Inside, fixtures are gone
and even the floors have been
ripped apart � by looters, not
artillery.
The Republic of Venezuela
School was a refugeecenter until a
few days ago, when the last fami-
lies were moved to an empty
government warehouse. Boxes of
trash, some full of empty liquor
bottles, still line the halls.
"We don't have a plate or a
spoon or a pot or pan, says pri n-
cipal Lijia Pinilla de Mora. Pinilla
de Mora's school is one of many
that bears two names � one for
each shift. Republic of Venezuela
School becomes Gil Colunje School

students and different teachers.
At Republic of Cuba School,
Israel Valdes, 10, is looking for-
ward to beginning the fifth grade,

form.

An Mast Carolina graduate has secured the
leading role in the new NBC sitcom "Working
Girl Sandra Bullock, an '86 graduate of the theatre
arts department, plays the part ot less, Melanie
Griffith's role in the movie.
"WorkingC.irl" premiered Monday at 8'30 EST.
The television show, like the movie, features Bul-
kxkasa secretary trying to make it up the corporate
ladder.
The entertainment critic of Peopie Weekly maga-
zine, David Hiltbrand, said the sitcom resembled
the original movie 'toi about 12 minutes into the
initial episode. So much for the original premise
He also said, "Bullock is too preppy for

Edgar Loessin, chairman of ECU'S theatre arts

has talent. She's one of those people that the camera
loves
While at ECU, Bullock acted in several campus
productions including "Peter Tan" and "Stage Door
After graduation, Bullock moved to New York and
launched her career.
Bullock has worked in many television movies
including "The Bionic Showdown The Pteppie

Bullock's success is the result of her own talent
and determination, but it is also a testimonial to

the rise and "WorkingGirl" should be popular show
among her fellow Pirates.
King novel

By Janie Smith
Special to The Fast Carolinian
Once again, Stephen King has
brought forth the mysteries of the
mind in his new book The Dark
Half He goes new meaning to
the phrase everyone in the world
has a twin. "The Dark Half" is a
strange tale of a man and his sub-
conscious.
The main character, Thad
Beaumont, is a writer and a pro
lessor. He leads a quiet life inCastle
Rock, Maine, vMth his wife and
infant twins.
Asa writer, Thad is failing S
he begins writing books under the
pseudonvm of George Stark. 1 le
even makes upa slightly evil biog-
raphy on Stark, giving himahome
and a past The "hero" oi Stark-
books is a man named Machine
Heiscruel and haunting, but read-
ers loves him. Writing as Stark
I had's books are successful.
When Thad is writing a Stark
novel, he changesdrasticallyfn
a mild, quiet man to a cyni il
almost inhuman creature, as it he
is possessed by another soul.
After a while, Thad becomes
tired oi writing as George Stark
and wants to begin writing under
his own name again. When he tells
the public that he is Stark, trouble
begins.
Thad begins to hear birds in
his head, as he did when he was
young. These birds have not re
turned since he had brain surgery
almost 20 years before.
Thad begins hearing the bud
alter he announces he is Stark and
there will be no moreStark novels
The birds cause Thad to forget
things, and the phrase The spar-
rows are fiving again" hasThad in
a situation he cannot understand
or control.
Brutal murders are being
committed and Sheriff Alan
Pangborn's only evidence are the
fingerprints he has found at the
scene of each murder. However.
the fingerprintsarea perfect match
to Triad's. Thad knows he is not
guilty and finally convinces Sher-
iff Panghorn of his innocence. An
investigation begins toclear Thad,
but what the investigation uncov-
ers will change the lives of the

Stephen King's, "The Dark

orities.
Some things in life are urgent.
Immediate. Vital. Sleeping,eating
and breathing are up at the top of
the list. Thank Cod breathing is
involuntary or I'd forget to do it. I
forget the other two quite often.
But I have promised myself,
when the summer gets here, if it
gets here, 1 will breathe regularly,
sleepeight hours a week and eat at
least two meals a month.
Aside from the vital life func-
tions, I have goals for school. Yes,
I will be here in the mighty Emer-
ald City all summer long. I'm glad
I like it here or summer school
would be too much to bear.
I'vepromised myself I'll study
more, go, to classes (all of them)
and work on assignments when
they are given and not the night
before they are due.
My great summer plans in-
clude a social life of beach trips,
visiting friends and family and
family-to-be, having picnics in the
park and lounging on the beach.
With all those things on my
list of things to do, I still have
neglected the most important part
of my summer. I have toaskmyself
a question my mom asks me every
time we talk. "What on Earth are
you doing, for Heaven's sake?"
Taking all sarcasm out of that
question, 1 ask again. "Caroline,
what are you going to do this
summer, on Earth, in Greenville,
that will matter in the long run
and change eternity
So as we all ponder thiseter-
nally significant question, weneed
to consider the words of the man
who holds the answer,
Jesus said: 'Therefore do not
By Doug Morris
Staff Writer
be anxious for tomorrow; for
tomorrow will care for itself. Each
day has enough trouble of its
own (Matthew 6:34).
So where we invest our time,
that's where we'll find our priori-
ties. And where we devote our
concerns determines whether
we'll find anxiety or peace. Its
easy to get uptight over a lack of
time or over tasks to be done that
never seems to end.
However, Jesus said: "Look at
the birds of the air, that they do
not sow, neither do they reap, nor
gather into barns, and yet your
heavenly Father feeds them. Are
you not worth much more than
theyWhich of you by being an
ious can add a single cubit to his
life's span?" (Matthew 6:26-27).
For ideal advice Trust the One
who holds the answers, don't be
anxious and havea nicesurniher.
