"You can't terrorize people

said of rape prevention in his
lecture Monday night at Hendrix
Storaska is an expert on rape
prevention who, after witnessing
the gang rape of an 11 year-old girl
in 1964, decided to research rape
prevention and to lecture on it to
educate women on the tactics they
can use to scare (iff an attacker and
prevent possible rapes. Storaska
based his book "How to Say No to
Rapists and Survive published
in 1974 . on the research he made.

tor its eighth regular meeting for
the IMS1-PAH) academic year.
This final meeting oi the group
for the year was dominated by
budget cuts, parking problemsand
harassment policies.
Chancellor Richard R. Eakin
reported that the revenue shortfall
for North Carolina is close to $400
million dollars. This will lead to
greater cuts throughout all sectors
of the state's spending.
These spending cuts will be
felt in ECU's fourth quarter, where
the schiKl is $4 million short of
projected available dollars. .Eakin
reiterated that these losses will not
affect salaries of university em-
ployees. But utilities, supplies,
equipment and travel monies will
bear the cutbacks.
To aid these problems a freeze
on hiring is in effect until July 1, as
is a cut on traveling expenses for
employees. Other solutions, such
as the five percent cut in depart-
mental operating budgets, have
shown some savings to the school
since their initiation.
Eakin also hopes that no lay-
offs will occur due to money short-
falls, nor will any other measures
be taken that in any way will harm
the academic integrity of ECU.
Requests by employees for
travel expenses and
reimbursements and for
equipment purchases will be
reviewed bv administrative
persons to determine importance,
and to determine if any can be
feasibly cancelled.
The chancellor also reported
that employees will be allowed to
take voluntary leaves of absence
without pay, but with benefits to
help cutback payroll expenses.
Eakin, in reference to solving
our budget crunch, stated, "we
have nochoice and that coopera-
tion was needed from everyone in
the community of the school in
order to limit theeffectsof the belt-
The outlook for the 1990-1991
academic year is better, but the
problems may ride into that period.
Eakin said, "the temptation is
there when discussing the
possibility of pushing some of the
budget problems into the 1990-
1991 year. But both the university
and Chancellor Eakin are doing
everything possible to avoid that
and hope to deal with the financial
shortfall now.
Eakin also told the senators
that these cuts "will not dim our
vision Nor does the university's
leader feel that the students will
directly feel ramifications from the
money problems, "there will be
fewer peopledoing the same work,
we will not be hiring new
secretaries or custodial staff
members at this time
Vice Chancellor for Academic
Affairs Mai lene Springer, reported
on her accomplishments and dis-
appointments of her first eight
months as vice chancellor.
"I have placed more budget
responsibility with the dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences. I
have instituted as hiring policy that
we not, except in extraordinary
cases, entertain hiring people with
bachelor's degrees to teach on our
full-time faculty
Springer also discussed the
transference of the budget of the
administrative offices directly into
academic affairs, and the individ-
ual meetings she now holds with

Health Center offers tips
to relieve exam-time stress
By Susanne Kellerman
Student Health Center, 757-6794
Every day on college campuses you hear people comment about
how much stress" that they are under. But what actually is stress and
yvhat is the best way to deal with it?
Stress is described as "the non-specific response of the body to any
demand made upon it Stress results after one is exposed to ehangeor
tO a situation that may be dangerous, confusing, irritating or boring.
Stress is a part of your everyday life and it can be considered positive
or negative.
Positive stress, also calhx.1 "distress can enhance productivity
and even longevity. Fustress is the euphoric feeling you experience
while exercising or when you receive an A on a mid-term. Negative
stress, also called "distress cancause harmful, unpleasant effects. This
type ot stress is commonly associated with disease and illness.
Every one would like to a void distressaiuionlvexpericnceeustress.
Obviously thisisimpossible.Since wecan't avoid stress it lsbest to learn
to accept yvhat you cannot change and attempt to deal yvith exam stress
Ways to Reduce Stress
- Organize your time by setting priorities. Make a list each day of
what you need to accomplish.
- Eat a balanced diet. Too much alcohol, caffeine, and sugar can
contribute to irritability or fatigue.
- Plan to spend some time alone each day to clear your mind and
- Study on a regular basis. Procrastination and cramming will only
increase your stress.
- Take study breaks every hour. Go for a yvalk down the hall or
exercise! This should re-energize you for more studying.
- Get enough sleep and rest.
-Don't be afraid to say no. Don't overextend yourself and try to do
too much.
Remember, too much negative stress can cause an overload. You
may be suffering from a serious stress overload if you experience any

Storaska also stressed that the
rapist must be considered a human
being in order to be understood.

and is a person created In society.
1 le believes that rape is caused !n

but he made the point that rape is
still never justified main i aseand
that a woman should never feel
that she deserved to be ratxi
Storaska cited several cases m
which women had tricked their
attackers by out wit ting them, such
as one woman at Puke I niersit
who in 1965, kept her fiance from
raping her by vomiting on him.

Scholar examines nations'differences
By Kimberly Brothers
Staff Writer
The concept of brotherhood is
�n idea that greatlv separates the
societies of the Soviet Union and
North Korea, according to Dr.
V ictor D'Souza. an eminent
sociologist and visiting Fulbright
Scholar from India
"In North Korea, they are
making a conscious effort at
developing the concept of
brotherhood; making it the
foundation for the development
ot their society' said D'Souza at
an informal presentation in ECU'S
Brewsterbuildinglast Wednesday.
Because the brotherhood
concept is missing in the Russian
society, people have become
"indifferent toward one another
he continued.
When they re indifferent and
there is no monetary incentive to
work, then they become
inefficient added D'Souza. If
there was a concern tor others,
regardless ot the economic
situation, the Soviet people "would
still achieve efficiency
D'Souza is the author of eight
books and more than 100 articles.
He is also a termer president of the
Indian Sciological Societv and a
three-time Fulbright recipient. He
discussed observations he made
while visiting the Soviet Union in
1985 for a United ations confer-
ence, m i9S8 as a member of the
Indo-Soviet Joint Commission for
Cooperation in Social Sciences, and
m North Korea in 1989 tor a meet-
ing ot the Association ot Sociolo-
According: to D'Souza, the
concept of brotherhood has two
perspectives: maximization of
utilities, which puts importance
on material goods; and, maximi-
zation of capacities, which empha-
sizes making people self-reliant,
sociable and having a concern tor
one another.
"What is happening in mod-
ern society is based on the per-
spective ot maximization of utili-
ties D'Souza said. "In the proc-
ess, man becomes more and more
selfish and self-centered
He suggested that with the
aceeptanceof the idea of fraternity,
both equality and liberty can take
place in a society.
D'Souza said that because
fraternitvisa toppriontv in North
Korea, communism can succeed
in this kind ot society.

ECU was ranked as the lowest in
: North Carolina for these stipends.
I Ins increase was also the first one
j the university has engaged in over
10 years.
Before closing, the vice

Parking and I rat tic Committee
Earth Day
reported on that committee's prog-
ress in reviewing ECU'S parking
dilemma. Presently there are
"three times more parking per-
mits sold than spaces available
according to Ferrell.
Ferrell believes that one
possibility that may help alleviate
a portion of the problem would be
to move the 250 state owned ve-
hicles to a separate location. This
would open a tew additional
spaces for students and faculty
members on the campus.
Dr. Ronnie Van Sant, director
of Teaching Fellows at ECU,
reported on the progress that
program has had in the state ot
North Carolina. A participant in
the Teaching Fellows program
recieves $5000 as an incentive to
enter the teaching profession. The
program is greatly needed to aid
the teacher shortage. Since 1975
the number of college graduates
recieving North Carolina teaching
certification has fallen 5bpercent.
Calvin Braxton, a Jacksonville
native and Teaching Fellow
participant, discussed his progress
in the program and how the
experience will aid his career in
music education.
Jennifer Cibbs, a Raleigh na-
tive, also told the senate what she
has gained from the Teaching Fel-
lows program. "I want to have a

Cigarette commercials go too far
California's Department of Health
Services began a new television ad campaign
a few weeks ago. The first ad in the campaign
depicts the leaders oi tobacco companies as
morally corrupt robber-batons, whose evil
machinations lead them to prey on an
unsuspecting, gullible and innocent public.
One almost expects that, in the next
commercial in the series, they'll be shown
tying some innocent young lass to the
railroad tracks. Such stereotyping hardly
adds to the value of public debate. (Besides,
the president ol RJR-Nabisco, now on an
anti-smoking drive, is one obvious
counterexample to the view the commercials
present.) More important, it serves to hinder
discussion about smoking's health-related
effects and it will probably reinforce
least somesmokers' determination to persist
in their habit
The problem is not that what the ads
imply is completeU untrue. Certainly the
heads ol tobacco companies know the effects
of theii products. mA for them to continue
selling is at least morall) questionable.
1 lowever, their customers are, for the
most part, well a wareol what they're getting
themselves into when they decide to begin
smoking (or when thev decide not to quit).
And, though it's hardly a defense, the
tobacco companies do provide a lot of jobs in
areas which would not otherwise be able to
provide those jobs - in states like North
The Health Department is funding the
campaign with a 25-cents-per-pack tax on
every pack of cigarettes sold in the state. To
force smokers to pay tor the campaign is
clever, trom the standpoint of the California
Department oi 1 lealth Sen ices, but it is also
unfair. It' the ad campaign must run, then it
must be funded, but those funds should
come not just from smokers but front the
state's general tax revenues � since the
advertisements are, presumably, in the
public interest and not simply in the smokers'
More important than the question oi
who pays is the question oi whether the ad
campaign should exist at all. The answer is:
it shouldn't Californians have a right to
engage in self-destructive behavior if thev
want to. and the state oi California has no
right to force them to pay a tax in order that
thestatecan publicly criticize their behavior.
California, of course, views the situation
differently. In a state known for being health-
conscious, the public attitude toward
smokers is a little less friendly than it is here.
But California's non-smokers must accept
that part oi their responsibility' as members
ot a free society is to tolerate people who do
things they don't like. Thev don't have to
tolerate it when the smokers around them
increase their risk ol cancer, but these ads
are not running because the state decided
that too main people were dropping dead
from second-hand smoke. In fact, non-
smokers are subjected to much less second-
hand smoke than in recent years, partly
because smoking has been banned or
restricted in many businesses (including The
East Carolinian) and on airplanes. The ads
are running, rather, because smoking is. in
California even more than m cither states,
unpopular and therefore fairly safe to attack.
lust as California's non-smokers must
restrain themselves, so must the Health
Department restrain itself. The Health
Department admits � or, more accurately,
proclaims that the intent oi their
advertisements is to make smoking less
socially acceptable. Whatever the lealth
Department's views on smoking, and
however justified those views may be, it is
wrong to run ads that stigmatize groups oi
people based solelv on the fact that they
engage in practices others find annoying.
Whatever good this may do for smokers'
physical health, it will not improve their
mental health.
Nothing prevents California's
I Vpartment of Health Services from warning
smokers of the dangers oi tobacco use � in
fact, their doing so is clearly in the public
interest. But their current crop oi television
advertisements is too close to propaganda,
and too far away from dissemination of
information, to be considered an appropriate
part oi their function
Rather than try to shape public opinion
with such outlandishlv slanted commercials,
the California Department of Health Services
should stick to the facts. Their job is to
provide health-related information �
information � so that the members of the
public may make their own decisions. Their
job is not to attempt to convert the public to
a particular viewpoint, but to shed light on
Cot a light California?

Time magazine's "Planet of
the Year" was a smash hit when it
came out in the first week of
anuary last year. Among the
many interesting items in the issue,
a single statement su�od out from
all the rest that top scientists in
the U.S. and Europe agree we have
only ten years to save the planet.
I'hev say Earth is threatened
primarily by two tat.tors. (I) the
imminent and ever-present
danger of nuclear war (due either
to computer malfunction or to
terrorists getting hold of nuclear
missiles)and (2) the exponentially
growing problems of global
pollution and overpopulation. Hie
second factor is clearlv the one
whichdominatesourmindsas we
approach Earth Day
In September, lime's cover-
Story was "Torching the Amazon
a brilliant depiction ot the
ecological nightmare that has
swept our precious rainforests.
Theeditorsonly forgot to mention
one minor detail: we Ameneans
are to blame tor much oi the
South America's Amazon
jungle is 90 percent the area oi the
United States, ,nd it contains
between one-third and one-half of
all the world's species. Nowhere
else in the world is there such
genetic wealth. These rainforest
species provide medicines,
cosmetics, and numerous other
benefits to affluent sx:ietios. They
are uniquely adapted to life in the
rainforest. When the indigenous
people and wild species are
threatened by encroaching
colonists, lumbermen, ranchers,
and miners, the people and
animals either flee or die. And this
is precisely what is happening to
their precious home. At the present
rate. .n area the size ot orth
Carolina disappears everv year.
So what's the major cause ot
rainforest's demise? The
mainstream press has
brainwashed us into attributing
the devastation only to the
growing population ot
impoverished landless peasants
who are constantly needing more
land. The problem is exacerbated
by skyrocketing inflation ratesand
slipshod govcrment colonization
policies. But this is actually only a
minor part of the problem. The
great majority ot despoiled acres
are razed by foreign cattle, mining
and timber interests, irrespective
of Latin American needs or
benefits. The bulk oi devastation
is caused by corporate greed, and
many of us are unwittingly
supporting it.
Cattle ranching to feed North
American bellies takes the biggest
toll of all. In the 1980's, the
development oi cattle ranches
accounted for nearly three-
quartersof Brazil's forest clearing,

SGA President speaks of future
As my term oi office draws to
a close 1 would like to reflect upon
the vear and offer my vision as to
what 1 see for East Carolina
University in the future. The past
year has been without a doubt the
most fulfilling year oi my lite. It
has brought me a tremendous
feeling to know that 1 honestly
gave this position every ounce of
energy that 1 had. For the past year
mv life has revolved around
serving as student body president,
and 1 do not regret a single second
ot it.
There are some moments that
stand out above all others. The
brightest moment may have been
themarchonCityl fall, when noise
permits were eliminated. For once
I believe that theory of Greenville
began to realize that students will
not stand for being treated as
second class citizens. One thing
that some members of the City
Council fail to realize is that we as
individual students may only be
here for four or five vears yet
there will alwavsbeat least 15,000
students residing in Greenville.
Purple Monday was also an
event that opened the eyes of
many. Our economic input into
the community must not be
underestimated. The "Stop the
Nonsense Rally" that was held on
Purple Monday brought out many
students that were not pleased at
all with the handling of the so
called "riot" in Tar River and the
elimination of noise permits.
The Halloween incident isone
that still concerns me very much.
There was no reason for the
situation to be handled in the
manner that it was; riot gear,
prison buses, and over 100 police
officers all for a partv with only
200 people. The damage that the
city of Greenville did to the public
image of East Carolina University
is not measurable. What does the
average parent in Charlotte, with
a prospective student of ECU say
now after reading about the huge
riot" at East Carolina The whole
Halloween ordeal could have been
prevented by allowing the
celebration downtown.
There have been many other
occurencesover the past vear that
have been worth noting, vet
instead of continuing to reflect on
the past I would like to offer mv
insight into what lies ahead for
ECU and how 1 feel it should be
We as citizens of Greenville
must become more involved with
the actions of the city. The effort
must be made now to register
every student to vote and once
registered we must participate in
the elections.
Everyone on the city council
is not evil, there are just a few that
are close-minded. As long as these
members remain on the council
the progress of both Greenville
and ECU will be held back.
It has pleased me to see nearly
$600,000 appropriated to
additional lighting on campus. We
must still continue to make all
areas of campusassafeaspossible.
The city of Greenville can help by
increasing lighting in the areas
around campus. Pirate Ride is in
place and now should be
expanded to include more areas
both on and off campus
The problem ol parking is one
that must be addressed right �
It is not going to cure itsell As
expensh easit ma) be I do belies
that a parking deck is still th- �
1 see our athletic program
making great strides in the next
few vears 1 believe that our
football program should and will
make a move into a conference
This can only bring benefits I
everyone involved with Fast
1 also believe that we as
students must stand up for our
rights. W bother it be a city, state
or a local problem we must unite
to tight the problems of societv
today. Our voice has been heard
this vear we cannot quit now that
the tight has only begun.
Inclosing! would liketothank
everyone that gave me the
opportunitv to serve as your
student bodv president. The vear
has been very exciting and it is
going tone very hard to give it up
1 will sav that I will never give up
in working for the betterment of
East Carolina students.
1 wish Allen Thomas good
luck with the position. Allen, 1
have all the faith in the world in
you and know that you will do an
excellent job
Again to all I say thank you

he graduating in four years �
beating the fivc-vear average �

urN or what ever senior hours
are now, knows exactlv what I'm
tilking about.
1 n fact, everyone at this school
Kilo . s what I'm talking about �
it's our schools outstanding
differential ratio of teachers to
students � a factor which limits
the availability of classes that are
rffered. We have over 16,000
.tudents at this school, who all
parents that have that four-
,ear college plan dream in their
minds, only to be sending their
id 9 to one of the few colleges tha t
can almost guarantee you will not
r uluate in less than five years.
nd why? Not because we are all
a bunch of drunk "partiers" who
in t pass classes every year,
ilthough vou can't discount the
rail minontv of people that fall
i that category, but because we
are aced, day one, as freshman
with the limited choices of classes
that we can take. And after hours
of schedule struggling, and
camping out at terminals, find out
everything�including Freshman
English Composition which you
have to have your first semester
� is closed ou t. Thus we are only
left with the solution of taking
various courses, picked out of the

you wasted an entire semester
taking things (the hardest classes
of course � they're the only ones
tha tare ever open) you don't need
and will never need at this school.
And tudum you're already a
semester behind.
Of course that has been the
story of my career at East Carolina.
In fact, I was almost prohibited
from graduating in June because
when I went to register for the
ONE last class I had left to take to
get my BA degree, I was politely
informed that that class was not
offered in summer school or fall
� it was a spring course only �
needed by all students in particular
IIItfcll I. during certain semesters
only, is absolutely absurd. I
couldn't believe it. I was informed
that I should have taken the class
earlier, and then I informed them
that I had been trying to take the
class ever since I was a freshman
but I could never get in it � it
always closed out!
It's a catch-22. You can't get
classes until you're a senior and
then you can't get ti.em because
they are only offered during
certain semesters, thus you tack
on another extra semester. ECU
hasenough problems already, but
I think thatthisone merits enough
importance tha t should be worked
on immediately. It is obvious that
there are not enough professors to
teach the classes that are needed
for students. Why? I'm sure
because of the ol' standard reason
� lack of funds. But it is us, the
students, that arc suffering from
our schools money problem, we
are the ones that are having to stay
hereone, two,and even three years
longer than anticipated, an it is
our parents' pwkctbooks that are
paying the price.
Needless to say my proble was
worked out atter several hours of
rearranging and substituting, but
not everyone is so lucky. We need
a change The bottom line � we
need more professors. This is a
serious problem that needs to be
dealt with immediately. Granted
we need more parking spaces, and
better campus security, not to
mention thousandsof other things,
but if we don't start offering more
classes, instead of wasting money
on new logo signs, we may reach
the point where admissions will
start having to deny even more
applicants each year � which
would only hurt our school's
continued steady growth rate.
Remember, our purple and
gold student handbook clearly
reads that East Carolina University
is a four year, not � welcome to
ECU if vou graduate in less than
five vears you're Lucky as Hell!
Kelly Easterling
Graduating Senior
Student addresses parking issue
To the editor.
Yesterday I received a parking
ticket (No. 12087) for parking in a
ipace that I have frequently used
and that is filled every day by
someone, in the lot just across 10th
Street from Fletcher. The space
Joes not violate any safety
regulations that 1 know about. As
i commuter (45 miles each
Jiret tion each day) 1 resent having
a hassle about parking. I don't pay
I per vear to sit in a line for 45
minutes waiting forparkingspace.
I can'l park at Mingcs because
sometime I have only an hour to
run an errand so my vehicle needs
to be where I can have access
�without reiving on shuttle service.
There are several matters that
need to be addressed regarding
campus parking.
1There arc two handicapped
spaces in the large commuter lot
on College Hill Drive. If I were
handicapped, I certainly would
not want to have to navigate a
Rain Forest
directly feed into the Greenhouse
Effect Six percent of the world is
� overed by tropical forest,yet that
-mall fraction will account for up
to 25 percent of the global
u arming if the burning continues.
Global warming may spell
widespread droughts, shorter
growing seasons, and large-scale
starvation by the year 2000. Either
vou should start stock-piling
(hose Twinkies or stop eating
those hamburgers. Why not
boycott all fast food chains until
they stop buying rainforest beef?
Only Burger King has stopped
doing so.)
Of course, that would only be
a first step. At the Global Climate
hange Symposium I attended
earlier this month at N.C. State
University, Professor Pedro
Sanchez proposed a worldwide,
coordinated Deforestation
Reduction Initiative involving
education and policy formulation
for "sustainable management"
(soil conservation, reforestation.
steep incline,contend with broken
sidewalk, and move across 10th
Street. This is another put-down
to the handicapped students.Their
spaces should be close to building
entrances. That handicapped
space could be restriped for three
compact cars.
2.) There is a car with
parked and stationary in the long
commuter lot across for Brewster
since last August. I was told that it
belongs to a staff member who
"hasn't gotten around to moving
it" and that there is a "don't tow"
remark for that vehicle. Until
yesterday it didn't even have a
current parking sticker on it. (I
can't believe the person would
have paid $50 to let it sit there
when towing charges are $25)
That space could be used for a
legitimate commuter.
3.) Staff parking lots are
opened to other university
stickered cars after 7 p.m. I would
say that if the staff is not in place-
before that, then they should give
way to commuters and night
stickers. It has already been
determined that it is not safe for
women to walk around campus at
night, so why should parking
spaces be left open just because
some staff member "might" want
to park there. More realistic would
be a 5 p.m. time. Staff has already
claimed about 30 parking spaces
that use to belong to commuters.
I really believe that your
department is capable of more
creative solutions for the parking
problems. The situation for visitors
is even more ridiculous. Perhaps
the money spent for salaries for
those who go around giving us
tickets for minor infractions (or no
obvious infraction, in my case)
could be better spent in a fund to
build parking tiers.

sustainable agriculture, etc.)
within the major countries
involved in rainforest clearing.
Sanchez outlined management
technologies�most of which are
already in use�which would
eliminate the pressure for further
deforestation. "For every hectare
put under sustainable managment
five to ten hectare of forest are
saved each year he said.
"Implementationof these methods
will directly improve the
livelihood of both Third World
tropical countries and the
developed world
Unless we make changes in
our life-style and stop supporting
blind corporate interests, the
rainforests will die and life as we
know it will come to an end. This
is no alarmist hype. Our lives
depend upon thelarger webof life
which biologistscall the biosphere.
It is a basic fact of scientific
consensus: when you traumatize
the biosphere to the limit, the
biosphere can no longer support
life. It's a lot like the human body
when its temperature gets too high
in the course of a fever�the brain
shuts down and you die. At the
present time, we're brewing up a
global fever, and no amount of
aspirin, fluids, and cold towels
will work if it progresses too far.
In our so-called civilized
society, we often forget that we
ultimately depend upon the
natural world for all our needs.
We also forget that the web of life
does not exist solely for our human
benefit. That's an outmoded
anthropocentric idea�a
sentimental notion that no longer
applies. The bacteria in the soil
underneath those massive treesof
the rainforest are no less important
than you or I. Indeed, in biological
terms, they may be more
important. In order to save the
world's magnificent forests, we
must totally rethink our place on
this Earth. We may have less than
ten years to do so.
It's time to do your part!

'Kid's Day' a reality
By Chippy Bonehead
ECU Today
Hallmark Greeting Cards an-
nounced the creation of a new official
holiday Wednesday � Children's
Day. It will fall midway between
Mother's Day and Father's Day each
"But no exact date has been set
yet Hallmark CEO Mark Hall said.
"You have to understand the nature
of holidays whose dates change each
year. We don't determine the date, we
just let advertisers start making holi-
day commercials whenever they feel
it's been about a year since that holi-
day last occurred.
"The public just accepts that it's
time for Mother's Day or Secretary's
Day again, and starts buying. So,
whenever the big department stores
start advertising Kid's Day, then we'll
narrow down a date
The decision to create the holiday
came after years of debate. "Everyone
always tells their kids, 'Every day is
Children's Day' when their children
ask them why a day hasn't been allot-
ted for them So yesterday, we just
decided to get on with it and make
Children's Dav a reality Hall added.
"1 know some people are saying
that Hell must be freezing over for us
to make such a decision, but I'm sure
everyone will see how viable the
market is right now for this sort of
thing. What, Hell has frozen over?

ECU Director of Feminist Stuff
Dr. Mary Rant, who is pnmanlv re-
sponsible tor blowing the int dent si
outrageously out of proportion, was
also present at the meeting. In an
emotional moment, she admitted that
she had been crushinglv stupid even
to suggest that Bonehead's on-air
comments constituted anything re-
motely resembling sexual harassment
ordiscrimination, or were in any wav
offensive and unfunny. In an appar-
ently unrelated statement, Farrt also
revealed that she wears a toupee.
Farrt went on to say that perhaps
the most disgusting part of the entire
affair was that the head of the
universiry'sCommunications Depart-
ment (by which Farrt apparently
meant herself) would so much as
consider taking such a conservative
view of First Amendment rights.
"I can't believe I thought this

rrt concluded bv commenting
that she was glad she had finally real-
ized that idiots like herself did tar
more to harm the tight for women's

Farrt later told The An tlgamated
Press that she has apologia d to both
Bonehead and Bien tor the emotional
distress she caused them, and that she
has personally compensated the duo
for the expenses thev incurred in legal
fees and lost wages as a result of her

Civil rights activist Abernathy dies
ByDebbie Hewlett and
Mark Mayfield
Gannett News Service
ATLANTA One of the last
links to the birth of the nation's
civil rights movement was broken
Tuesday with the death of the Rev.
Ralph David Abernathy.
Abernathy achieved his
SUCCC98 in the shadow of Martin
Luther King r. He was King's
closest aide and best friend. Less
charismatic and more militant
than his "blood brother
Abernathy was an integral part of
the movement.
There probably could not
have been a civil rights movement
without the contribution he
made said King protege Andrew
Young, former mayor of Atlanta.
When King was a verv voung
and shy man, it was Ralph
Abernathy's friendship and
support thai helped him emerge
to plant the seeds of human
rights and human dignity now
spreading all over the world
Abernathy was with King
from the beginning, initiating the
Montgomery, Ala bus boycott in
1955. Me accompanied King to
Oslo when King accepted the
Nobel peace prize. And it was
Abernathy who cradled King's
head as King lay dying on the
balcony of Memphis' Lorraine
Motel in 1968.
Shortly after King's death,
Abernathy wrote a letter to the
man he considered his dearest
"Martin he wrote, "Find
Frederick Douglass Check with
Nat Turner, and Marcus Garvey,
for they too are heroes in our
crusade. And don't forget
Malcolm X. Look for Malcolm X,
Young sees Abornathy'sdeath
in much the same way.

said. "And I am sure he will renew

an assassin's bullet, but My
overworked heart. Still, the shock
was great.
"I am deeply saddened said
Coretta Scott King "His
pioneering work in the movement

black voters
Said Rev. Joseph l.owery, a
friend who succeeded Abernathy
as head of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference: "We did
not know his illness was quite so
critical. He had not been receiving
visitors. We had heard he had been
on a diet and his sodium level was
Abernathy, 64, was
hospitalized March 23 at Crawford

University for whatdoctorscalled
a low sodium condition
He had suffered strokes in

for a blocked cerebral artery in
Tuesday, he was taken from
intensive care for a lung scan to
check for a blood clot in his lung.
As he was preparing for the
procedure, his heart stopped.
Abernathy is survived by his
wife, Juanita: two sons, Kwamc
and Georgia state Rep. Ralph
David Abernathy III; and two
daughters, Juandalynn and
Don.a lei gh. Funeral
arrangements were pending.
A woman who answered the
phone at the Abernathy residence
said the family had no statement.
The grandson of a slave,
Abernathy recalled once that his
grandmother announced the day
he was born in Linden, Ala "This

at Ebenezer Baptist Church. But it
was in Montgomery, in 1954, that
the two preachers from two
churches joined forces.

Seized tubes suspected to be gun parts
government is convinced that
eight steel tubes seized by Customs
officers last week were ordered by
Iraq as parts for a gigantic gun,
and that the seizurefoiled its plans,
a top official said Wednesday.
"I understand that it will not
be possible to build a complete
full-size gun from parts that have
been supplied" from the United
Kingdom, Trade and Industry
Secretary Nicholas Ridley told the
House of Commons.
"The government is entirely
satisfied that these tubes form part
of a gun, and that the Customs
action was correct he said.
It was the first statement by a
high-level government official
confirming that it believes the
tubes were intended tor a weapons
project. Iraq and the manufacturer,
Sheffield Forgemasters, insist they
were intended for a petrochemical
"The government recently
became aware in general terms of
an Iraqi project to develop a long-
range gun based on designs
developed by the late Dr. Gerald
Bull. The goods that were seized
at Teesport and related documents
areconsistent with what is known
Of Dr. Bull's design Ridley said.
Customs seised eight forged
steel tubes at the port of
Middlesbrough in northeastern
England as they were about to be
shipped to Iraq. Officials say the
tubes could be used as part of a
130-foot-long gun to tire shells

Forgemasters, asking whether
licenses were required "forexport

The department was also
contacted by Walter Somers Ltd.
about a separate order from Iraq.
"Until a few days ago, my

Republicans question state election laws
RALEIGH (AP) - As races
for statewide judicial Offices heat
up. Republicans maintain that
they're at a disadvantage under
state election laws.
Tom Ballus, communications
director for the state Republican
Party, said judicial elections will
be a problem "as long as judges
are required to run tor office and
can't speak on the issues
Republicans mounted their
first effective challenges tor judi-
cial seats in 1986, partly b attack-
ing Democratic incumbents tor
their stands on the death penalty
and other social issues A GOP
committee was formed to help
Rhoda Billings, appointed chief
justice of the Supreme Court by
Gov. Jim Martin, retain her seat
against Democrat lames Exum.
The committee's attacks on
Exum, who eventually won,
circumvented ethical standards
that bar judicial candidates from
addressing issues that might later
come before them. But that drew
criticism from Democrats who said
a judge's personal stands
shouldn't affect decisions based
on the law.
This year. Democrats have
formed their own group the
Democratic Judicial Campaign
Committee to answer similar
attacks, if they come.
"Things'U heat up as soon as
the Republicans make a misstate-
ment said former Rep Al Adams,
chairman of the committee. "My
role is to answer it and I'm pre-
pared to do that
In the 1986 race, Ms. Billings
repeatedly distanced herself from
attacks by Republicans. Adams
said he expects similar behavior
from the current crop of Republi-
can candidates who "all have vcrv
strict ethical standards
"I think that this one will be
decided moreon the judicial quali-
fications and the judicial record of
the persons that hold the offices
he said.
That has been a problem for
Republicans in the past because
Democrats have had a strangle-
hold on the judiciary tor decades,
giving the GOP little chance to
gain experience.
That fact could spark another
skirmish on the issue of how
judges are chosen. Republicans
have maintained that statewide
election discriminates against the
GOP and that Democrats would
oppose merit selection or appoint-
ive offices.
Adams said the GOP might
make campaigns as divisive as
possible to create momentum for
a new system.

He organized the Poor
People's campaign and brought

heightened tensions from the

In 1977, Abernathy, under
pressure, resigned as SCLC
president. He returned to
preaching and an unsuccessful
run for the U.S. House. In 1980 he
was criticized for endorsing the
campaign of Ronald Reagan.
Six months ago. his
autobiography, "And the Walls
Came Tumbling Down brought
him as much attention as he ever
had, not for his work, but for
passages that said King had
extramarital affairs, even on the
night before his assassination.
Privately, some of the
mo vement's old-line leaders ha ve
suggested Abernathy was jealous
of King, going so far as to accuse
speech writers of putting more
flourish into speeches written for
King than the ones written for
Georgia state Rep. Tyrone
Brooks, who helped Abernathy
promote the book, defends him:
Ralph was the unsung hero of
the modern day civil rights
movement And that's what was

About 1,500 joint ventures.

in Lithuania Baker said
Lithuania's parliament, the
SuprcmeCouncil, met Wednesday
to forge an official response to the
Soviet leader, and they were still
debating the tone of the resolution
into the afternoon, said Rita
Dapkus of the legislature's
Information Office Also under
sharp discussion was the
composition of a delegation to
send to Moscow, she said.
Worried Lithuanians flooded
the Baltic republic's government
with phone calls and stocked up
on fuel.
Lithuanian President
Vytautas Landsbergis said he
believed any hardships would
strengthen the republic's resolve
to split from the Soviet Union.

phenomenon among any age

female ratio among adults with

researchers said.
The probable explanation, the
researchers said, is that females
aged 17 and 18 "are more likely to
have older, infected sexual

"The problem is from the
Democratic standpoint that the

10 The East Carolinian. April 19.1990
Republicans question state election laws
RALEIGH (AP) � As races
for statewide judicial offices heat
up, Republicans maintain that
they're at a disadvantage under
state election laws.
Tom Ballus, communications
director for the state Republican
Party, said judicial elections will
be a problem "as long as judges
are required to run for office and
can't speak on the issues
Republicans mounted their
first effective challenges for judi-
cial seats in 1986, partly by attack-
ing Democratic incumbents for
their stands on the death penalty
and other social issues. A GOP
committee was formed to he!p
Rhoda Billings, appointed chief
justice of the Supreme Court by
Gov. Jim Martin, retain her seat
against Democrat James Exum.
The committee's attacks on
Exum, who eventually won,
circumvented ethical standards
that Kir judicial candidates from
addressing issues that might later
come before them. But that drew
criticism from Democra ts who said
a judge's personal stands
shouldn't affect decisions based
on the law.
This year, Democrats have
formed their own group � the
Democratic Judicial Campaign
Committee � to answer similar
attacks, if they come.
"Things'll heat up as soon as
the Republicans make a misstate-
ment said former Rep. Al Adams,
chairman of the committee. "My
role is to answer it and I'm pre-
pared to do that
In the 1986 race, Ms. Billings
repeatedly distanced herself from
attacks by Republicans. Adams
said he expects similar behavior
from the current crop of Republi-
can candidates who "all have very
strict ethical standards
"I think that this one will be
decided moreon the judicial quali-
fications and the judicial record of
the persons that hold the offices
he said.
That has been a problem for
Republicans in the past because
Democrats have had a strangle-
hold on the judiciary for decades,
giving the GOP little chance to
gain experience.
That fact could spark another
skirmish on the issue of how
judges are chosen. Republicans
have maintained that statewide
election discriminates against the
GOP and that Democrats would
oppose merit selection or appoint-
ive offices.
Adams said the GOP might
make campaigns as divisive as
possible to create momentum for
a new system.

Washington and elsewhere, he
brought a more militant approach.
He organized the Poor
People's campaign and brought
to Washington, D.C an
encampment he called
"Resurrection City His first
effort flopped, a victim of rain,
heightened tensions from the
rioting and poor organization.
In 1977, Abernathy, under
pressure, resigned as SCLC
president. He returned to
preaching and an unsuccessful
run for the U.S. House. In 1980 he
was criticized for endorsing the
campaign of Ronald Reagan.
Six months ago, his
autobiography, "And the Walls
Came Tumbling Down brought
him as much attention as he ever
had, not for his work, but for
passages that said King had
extramarital affairs, even on the
night before his assassination.
Privately, some of the
movement's old-line leaders have
suggested Abernathy was jealous
of King, going so far as to accuse
speech writers of putting more
nourish into speeches written for
King than the ones written for
Georgia state Rep. Tyrone
Brooks, who helped Abernathy
promote the book, defends him:
'Ralph was the unsung hero of
the modern day civil rights
movement And that's what was
"Until Wednesday, nobody's
mentioned the book to me in
several months said Lowery. "I
think it's run its course. What
people will remember, what

including 150 that involve U.S.

In addition, Dubinin said he
expected to see more than a dozen
other joint ventures come to frui-
tion over the coming months, in-
cluding agreements with compa-
nies such as Johnson& Johnson
and RJR Nabisco, according to The

more directly in their interest than
in ours. And those contacts are
being put to risk by Soviet actions
in Lithuania Baker said.
Lithuania's parliament, the
SuprcmeCouncil, met Wednesday
to forge an official response to the
Soviet leader, and they were still
debating the toncof the resolution
into the afternoon, said Rita
Dapkus of the legislature's
Information Office. Also under
sharp discussion was the
composition of a delegation to
send to Moscow, she said.
Worried Lithuanians flooded
the Baltic republic's government
with phone calls and stocked up
on fuel.
Lithuanian President
Vytautas Landsbcrgis said he
believed any hardships would
strengthen the republic's resolve
to split from the Soviet Union.

applicants tested positive, or .032
percent, and 345 of 991,455 males,
or .035 percent, the researchers
But women aged 17 and 18
tested positive more often than
their male counterparts � 28 of
102)76 women, or .027 percent,
compared with 177of 763,872 men,
or .023 percent � an unusual
phenomenon among any age
group. For example, the male-
female ratio among adults with
full-blown AIDS is 9.3-1, the
researchers said.
The probable explanation, the
researchers said, is that females
aged 17 and 18 "are more likely to
have older, infected sexual
partners than males
"The problem is from the
Democratic standpoint that the
Republican Party says they will be
as dirty as they can because that
will make the legislature change
the way that we select judges
Adams said. 'That's a political
ploy I don't think will work this
time But Republicans already
have some momentum.
Last year, Robert Orr became
the first Republican elected to the
Court of Appeals and Republican
Howard Manning won a Superior
Court seat.
"Now we're really concentrat-
ing on judicial races Ballus said.
Arch Laney of the state Demo-
cratic Party said that by contest-
ing most of the races. Republicans
are ensuring more Democratic

Democratic Justices John Webb
and Willis Whichard will be chal-

former U.S. Attorney Sam Currin.
Six of the nine judges on the
Court of Appeals � all Democrats
� face Republican challengers.
And one, 70-year-old Eugene
Phillips, faces a primary against
Ellen Scoutcn in which age is the
major issue.
Phillips has said he will not
accede to the state's mandatory
retirement age of 72. But he dis-
putes Ms. Scouten's contention
that he might be forced out, leav-
ing his seat to be filled by a Repub-
lican chosen by Gov. Jim Martin.

Pickiri the Bon
Bonehead rattles some skeletons
By Chippy Bonehead
Staff Rattler
I never heard the phrase
"invisible minority" before last
week. It sounded cool � some
group of people were getting to
run around on Inviso-power, and
I just hoped they weren't spying
on me.
So 1 was crushed to learn it
just meant fags. Because theoreti-
cally, no one can tell they're a
minority cause there's no visible
difference between them and
straight people.
Well, I'll be the first to tell vou
they aren't as invisible as they
might want to be. So, just in case
you're interested, Bonehead's Five
Sore-Fire Methods for Uncover-
ing the Homos in Your Life.
1) The dead giveaway, of
course, is if they make a move on
vou. Because all fags want every
straight guy,and every dyke wants
every sorority babe.
just like every trat boy wants
every dog-bite ugly girl, and ev-
ery girl goes tor a sharp-dressed
Still, some of the more arcane
rumors that abound about frater-
nities make me think even that's
not tho giveaway I thought Not.
having been initiated into a trat, 1
can't confirm or deny this, but it
sure is intriging.
For some reason, I've never
heard ot rumors ot homosexual
rites among sororities, but that
could be because sorority chicks
are credit-card oriented rather
than sex oriented.
2) Fags look like wimps and
dykes look like truck drivers. This
seems to be a good rule ot thumb,
but many a person has been sur-
prised by the heterosexual prow-
essofa skinnv. bushy-mo ustached
guy or crew-cut cropped female
Softball player.
Nowadays, these invisible
minority people seem to be wis-
ingup. Fags lift weightsand shave,
and dvkes are wearing make-up
and not beating people up. You'd
think they wore trvmg to stay
3) Thev go to gay bars. An-
other good rule of thumb, but vou
can'tcounton this one 1(H) percent
either Gay bars generally play
bettor dance music than straight
bars, so straight guys and girls
will sometimes pop up at the
Paddock Club just to dance.
And on the other side of the
coin, some homos appear to have
good taste in bands and so you
can't be too surprised to run into
some one Friday night at
O'Rockefellers or the Deli.
4) Their apartments are more
tastefully decorated. This is one of
the most telling methods. Track
lighting, framed erotic posters,
Marilyn montages, Sylvia Plath
books if you walk into an apart-
ment like this, you can know with
some certainty you're in the pres-
ence of an alternate lifestylist.
Of course, some are too poor
to afford all those ferns, and they
leave their clothes on the floor.
And some straight people think
Marilyn and James Dean were real
actors, not just brainless bimbos
who became cult hems because
they diedyoung, so they may have
a few posters up.
5) The only sure-fire method
available is to check out the CD
collection. It's a little easier to
determine gays. If they have one

Music Notes
The nineties must be the era of the female because there are a bunch
ofbandsaround now that are either all girl or have female singers, from
the Primitives, Parting Buds and voice of the Beehive to the more
current Caterwaul and Lava Love. Girisareeven playing in punk bands
like Frightwig and Scrawl There's also more sublime Suzanne Vega
and Banshees spin-off band The Creatures. Women rule:
Public Enemy's new album "Fear of a Black Planet" is great and
militant and pissed off and free of any major FCC violations There's
also Two Nice C.irls, who cover Donna Summer, Bad Company, The
Carpenters and Sonic Youth. They're definitely in competition with the
IVad Milkmen for great Kncs. On their one original song, the chorus
goes "I spent my last $10 on birth control and beer. My life was so much
simpler when 1 was sober and queer

Langdon, Pirates rally
to beat Wolfpack, 6-5
By Doug Johnson
Special to The Easl Carolinian
The Pirates ot ECU rode the
crest of a tour-run sixth inning to
edge the N.C. State Wolfpack 6-5
al Harrington Field Wednesday
The Pirates allowed a four-
run seventh inning rally bv the
Pack but held on for the victory,
taking their record to 34-4 on the
season. The Pirates remain unde-
feated against Atlantic Coast
Conference teams on the year (8-
Tim Langdon started on the
mound for the Pirates, and picked
up one of his six strike-outs tor the
game in the first inning. The Pi-
rates left one on alter one nit, and
left one on on two hits in the sec-
ond. The Tirate defense held the
Wolfpack scoreless through two
as Langdon picked up his second
"K" of the game.
In the third. Robbie Park
advanced to tirst on an error by
Kevin Riggs at second, and went
to second when the next Wolfpack
batter grounded out to Riggs. Scott
Snead came up next tor the Pack,
and rapped a burner between third
and short for a double, scoring
Bark from second to give N .C State
a 1-0 lead.
The Pirates answered with a
run of their own in the bottom of
theinning. Left fielder John Adams
sent a long blast to the left field
wall for a double, and then ad-
vanced to third after an errant
pitch. Catcher Tommy Eason
scored Adams with a high shot to
left-center after the State fielder
lost the ball in the lights. Eason
was thrown out trying to stretch
the hit into a triple.
First baseman Calvin Brown
threatened to score in the inning
after get ting a single up the middle,
then stretching it out to a double
before the Wolfpack could make
the play. 1 ie tripped to third after
a low pitch got away from the
catcher,but was left on when third
ba sema n John Gast grou rtded ou t.
Following An uneventful
fourth inning, the Pirates put
another run on the board in the
bottom of the fifth when second
baseman Kevin Riggs started off
the side with a single to right field.
He stole second, then followed a
shot by Adams up the middle to
score. Adams recorded a single on
the hit. Brown ripped a shot down
the first-base line for a double,
moving Adams to third, but both
were left on after Gast flew out to
deep center.
The Pirates made a run in the
sixth after Langdon struck out the
first two State batters, and short
stop Berry Narron caught out the
third to retire the Wolfpack in the
top of the inning. Steve Godin
reached first on a walk, then went
to third when N'arron ripped a
shot over second for a single. Not
content with first, Narrondecided
to peddle his wares at second,
stealing to put the Pirates in good
scoring position.
Right fielder Tommy Yarbor-
ough stepped up to the plate next,
and sent the ball between first and
second, scoring Godin and send-
ing Narron to third. He went to

Raiders' move from
L.A. is questionable
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) � Mayor Lionel Wilson says he has no
choice but to ask the City Council to rescind its approval ot the
controversial plan to bring the Raiders football team back to Oakland.
"If it isn't dead, it'sdying Wilson said of the effort to lure the team
back from Los Angeles. The Raiders moved south from Oakland in
A drive to place the city-team package before the voters was at the
bottom of Wilson's surprise announcement on Monday that came after
he talked by phone with Raiders negotiator Jack Brooks, a part-owner
of the football team.
Petition organizers last week delivered more than 33,000 signa-
tures, far more than needed to place the issue on the ballot.
Raidersofficialssaid when the drive started that they would not let
the deal go to a referendum. Brooks said Monday there would be
nothing for the voters to decide because no deal had been signed.
I don't know what they would vote on because there is no offer
pending he said.
The deal approved by Oakland and Alameda County guaranteed
the Raiders$428 million in ticket salesand franchise feesovera 15-year
We are happy that the citizens of Oakland have been heard from
and that we now do not have a bad deal being forced upon us said
Frank Russo, the lawyer who led the petition effort.
Don Pcrata, chairman of the Alameda County Board of Supervi-
sors, blasted Wilson.
"The deal is finished he said. " am very disappointed in the
manner in which (Wilson) did it. For 15 months, we operated as
partners in an enterprise we felt was good for the community. But it is
a partnership And when one partner pulls out, you kill the proposal "
Flowever, Oakland City Councilman Richard Specs, who joined
Wilson on the narrow council majority that backed the deal, said there
was still a chance for a new agreement.
The Oakland Coliseum has collected more than $5 million from

N.C. State to name athletic director
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)�North
Carolina State officials are ex-
pected to name Connecticut ath-
letic director Todd Turner to fill
the same position in the Wolfpack
sports department, several news-
papers report today.
Turner, 39, is reportedly one
of two choices submitted to N.C.
State interim Chancellor Larry
Monteith for final consideration.
Turner was scheduled to re-
turn to his home in Storrs, Conn
Monday night, but canceled his
flight in order to continue talks
with Monteith today. The Char-
lotte Observer reported.
Turner also met Monday with
members of the N.C. State coach-
ing staff and athletic department.
Monteith said in a telephone
interview with The Charlotte Ob-
server late Monday night he had
not offered Turner the job, but he
would not rule out the possibility
that that could happen soon.
"We're just discussing at this
point Monteith said. "We really
don't have any announcement to
make yet
Turner could not be reached
for comment Monday night.
Connecticut President Dr.
JohnT. Casteen said Monday night
Turner had not informed him of
any decision concerning N.C.
State, but said he felt "Todd's
qualifications and what I under
stood to be N.C. State's needs"
were very compatible.
Both The New and Observer of
Raleigh and The Charlotte Observer
report today that the second name
submitted was that of Dave Mag-
gard, the athletic director at the
University of California.
The Greensboro News & Record,
however, reports that the other
candidate was North Carolina-
Charlotte athletic director and
head baskctballcoach Jeff Mullins.
In a phone call to Mullins
home in Charlotte on Monday
night, his wife Candy divulged
that he had withdrawn his name
from consideration for the N.C.
State athletic director's post, say-
ing, "The timing wasn't right be-
cause Jeff is still interested in
coaching. He is with recruits to-

A case summary is a compila-

It provides all the parties an indi-
cation of the issues to be discussed
in the hearing.

coach for 26 years, headed up the
basketball program for 21 years
and also served as chairman of the
physical education division dur-

But his leadership as athletic
director for the last 39 years has
been unmatched in terms of serv-

Wagoner. "He has impecable in-

A new survey by the National

money for products that are envi-
ronmentally safe.
In a telephone poll of 500
American college students, the
majority said ihcy are familiar with
current environmental issues. The
most recognized issues are oil
spills, smog and acid rain.
Ninety-four percent of ihe stu-
dents said they are willing to pay
more money for products and pack-
aging that are environmentally safe.
Students said they are very
concerned about toxic waste, en-
dangered species and protection of
wilderness areas, and they arc
somewhat concerned about smog,
oil spills and acid rain.
Almost half of the students
indicated that environmental qual-
ity is worse now than five years ago.
and 69 percent said the environment
will continue to decline for the next
five years: however, the majority of
ihe students indicated they will

German student wants unification Duke'spancreas-kidney transplant succeeds
By Shannon Buckley
Pa;e Kditor
A West Gorman student at ECU
said she never thought she would see
the Berlin Wall crumble during her
lifetime, although she was unable to
be in her homeland when this
change took place.
Mania Michel, a graduate
exchange student at EC! , said, "It
was a fantastic experience to see the
wall topple down on live
television According to Michel,
nobod behoved this would take
place m last Germany, especially
not in such a short period ol time.
Michel credits Ihe "new"
ficedoins that the East Germans are
experiencing to Communist Party
Leader Mikhail Gorbachev and his
plan known as Perestroika. She said
that Gorbachev's ability to delect the
true problems in his country and the
Soviet Bloc led to all the changes
that have been made in Communist
"The younger generation (of
West Germans) is happy with what
is going on and would be pleased to
have unification with East
Germany However, according to
Michel, the older generation still has
a problem with property rights.
Michel explained that some
members of the "older" generation
want the property borders that
existed before World War II to be

reinstated. However, the government
of West Germany has stated that
they do not want this property back.
Michel said, when she returned
home for Christmas that she saw
some changes in her country, but
the most drastic changes took place
in West Berlin. "This is where there
were mass shortages of goods In
addition to shortages, traffic was
backed up for hundreds of miles
because East Germans were finally
free to visit West Berlin.
Although the goods shortages
did not affect Michel's visit, the
heavy traffic did affect her.
According to Michel, she could not
make the trip to sec East Berlin,
which she has been wailing a
lifetime to do, because thousands of
West Germans flocked there over the
Michel said she sees the new
openness between East and West
Germany as a positive change, but
the large influx of East Germans to
West Germany could present some
negative consequences. For example,
1990 is an election year for West
Germany, and "many people say that

rids the body of toxic substances
through a catheter in the abdomen.
Kaylor previously repeated this

According to Ben Vernon, a
Duke University surgeon who
operated on Kaylor, peritoneal
dialysis is a special form of dialysis
that patients are able to administer
to themselves, without the aid of a
medical center.

Service industry to create more jobs
By Kristin Brooks
Page Designer
In the next 10 years, the most
popular job market will become the
"service industry According to a
spokesman for the Craven County
Employment Commission, "almost
80 percent of Americans will be
working in the service industry by
the year 2000 in one of the 20
million new jobs expected to be
created in this industry.
These jobs range from flipping
hamburgers to consulting on taxes,
from repairing computers to
operating an X-ray machine. Some
of the fastest growing jobs arc low
paying with few chances for
advancement, but on the flip side,
other service careers such as real es-
tate sales, health care services,
leisure services and paralegal
positions will continue to climb in
"Our aging population is
pushing health related careers into
the spodight. By the year 2000, we
will have over 100 thousand
centurions Dr. M. A. Ward said.
Besides needing more workers to fill
existing jobs, the health care
industry is creating new ones.
Physician's assistants (PA's)
positions are gaining popularity.
Under a doctor's supervision, ihcy
assist in interviewing patients,
taking tests and medical histories,
making some diagnoses, and in
some stales, prescribing drugs.
Statistics provided by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics in 1988
indicate that "this field will grow by
about 57 percent. PA's are in such a
high demand that there are seven
jobs for every applicant"
One needs a two- or four- year
degree in a physician's assistant
program offered at some colleges,
universities and medical centers.
Starting pay is close to $27,000 a
year, and experienced PA's may earn
more than S30.000 a year.
Another industry on the way up
is travel. "One way to get in on the
ground floor is by working as a
travel agent Dennis Bnxks, owner
of Travel Masters, said. Salaries are
$16,000 to $20,000 a year for
experienced agents, and with
commissioned positions, it is
possible to rake in $100,000 a year.
A four-year degree or vocational
training program may help in
getting a job, but neither is required.
With a projected grow ih rate of
104 percent by the year 2000,
paralegal positions arc the fastest
growing of the service occupations.
Paralegals work for lawyers doing
background research, analyzing
information and writing reports.
Many colleges offer four-year
degree programs in legal assistant
work, although a paralegal degree is
not required. Paralegals employed by
law firms can make more than
$40,000 a year with overtime,
depending on where they are located
in the country. Experienced par-
alegals with their own offices can
make upw ards of $80,000 a year.

Education majors, art doesn't stop at
graphic design and illustration. The
program oilers a vast array of art such
as ceramics, printing, drawing, paint-
ing, sculpture and wood design.
Of all the different types of art is

One day, he would like to be
able to teach at Rose High School in
Greenville. A graduate of the
school, Kaspcrck will be doing his
student teaching there in order to
satisfy an education requirement.
Like many other artists, Kas-
pcrck uses his art as a means of
communicating, expressing him-
self and drawing emotions from
other people.
So whether you arc an artist in
the education program or a com-
mercial artist, it's easy to see that
both programs demand a lot of hard
work, determination and plenty of
artistic abilities to succeed.

"Gypsy" is heralded as one of
the greatest American musical

disappointment. Rose then decides

"The Cocktail Hour" is a new

critics have called this his best play

written about them. John's sister is
upset with the minor role her
character was L'ien in the play.
Their confrontation unravels during
their ritualistic cocktail hour, as do

Letterman receives criticism
By Donna Hayes
Copy Editor
David Letterman seems to be receiving some undeserved criticism lately.
naVanityFair article, writer James Wolcott described the star of NBCV'Late
Night" as "the grinning pumpkin head on the graveyard shift
Wolcott continued: "(Letterman is� not a happy pumpkin Fuming has
melted his frost Considering the misguided bullets being fired at Ixtterman,
who can blame hira for being a little cool toward his public'
Those whoenjoy "Dave Bashing" obviously have never seen more than 15
minutes of "Late Night With David Letterman" because if they had, they would
realize that Letterman isn't sufiposcd to be serious .
Letterman told Rollins; Stone reporter Peter Kaplan: "We're not an
interview show. We're a comedy show After eight years of antics, the critics
still don't realize that lxtterman's show is the late-night adult equivalent of
Saturday morning kiddie television.
To understand Letterman. one must realize that he wants his viewers to
believe he is crazy. This is his gimmick. Former head writer (and Lettcrman's
ex-girlfriend) Merrill Markoc explained to Kaplan: "You and me know
(Dave's) nuts. Dave and the audience are united in the knowledge that they're
in on the joke
Letterman, a former stand-up comedian, has fathered several comic insti-
tutions during his lime at "Late Night Some of his best creations are "Stupid
Pet Tricks "Stupid Human Tricks" and, most notable, "The Top Ten
Letterman aims to entertain what Wolcott called "a marginal audience
"Late Night" isn't prime time, and it isn't produced to be a prime-time show.
Letterman conceded to Bob Costas, host of the late-night talk show "Later
that "Late Night's" current format probably would not work even one hour
earlier. The 12:30 a.m. slot is significant in timing the material lobe used on
the show.
"Late Night With David Letterman is "upbeat, deadpan (and) more than
a little contemptuous (but) the voice of (this) generation is the voice of David
Letterman concluded Esquire writer David Leavitt. Housewives probably
don't watch Dave; bankers probably don't watch Dave, and biologists probably
don't watch Dave, but college students and what Wolcott called the "boom-
b(xm offspring" of the baby-boomers faithfully watch Letterman.
Wolcott complained that Letterman whined about his cold for a week on
air. In fact, on the first show after his complete recovery. Dave celebrated his
good health with balloons and confetti. Why not? "This show is a little fortress.
a little bastion from which I can whine about practically anything Letterman
said to Rolling Stone. "We're just an irritant. We're like a gnat trying to sink
the 'Love Boat
Costas said that Lettcrman's "entire show is an ongoing joke about the
medium (of television) Dave has no qualms about calling his bosses at
General Electric (the owners of NBC) "pinheads Since Letterman is de-
livcring the audience, the executives don't seem to mind because tlie know
that we know Dave's "just kidding It's just that someone forgot 10 tell die
While Letterman sometimes appears irreverent toward his guests, his on
camera manner should not be mistaken for the real David Letterman. Kaplan
noted: "He's not exactly the David Letterman you sec on (television). There are
similaritiesbut the Letterman on televisionis a high-octane version of the
real-life Letterman (Dave is) playing a part
Letterman explained: "In the beginning, I thought the closer to your actual
self you were on the show, the belter it would be. But nowI realize you
definitely have to be more man yourself. You have to pretend that you're big-
ger. It's just show business, you know. We're just trying to sell Pintos here
In his effort to make the sell, Dave occasionally runs into trouble "My big
problem has been, and maybe always will be, when someone says something
that I feel I can get a laugh with by adding a remark to. I'll do it 90 percent of
the time And I know that can be annoyingbut something in the back of my
mind always saysIf you don'tdo something that getsa laugh here, this is going
to be dull Letterman admitted to Rolling Stone, "I'm not really suited for
interviewing(but) I wasn't hired to be a great interviewer
Letterman told Costas that he always wants his guests to look well on the
show because his audience deserves that much. Dave told Kaplan: "I don't want
to be perceived as a jck). ��� (I don't) just say, 'Line 'cm up. bring 'em in. and
let me make fun of them
David Lettcrman's favorite review reads, "The David Letterman show
smells like garbage � it stinks After eight years, the critics still don't
understand him. Some adults still watch cartoons on Saturday morning, and
some adults watch "Late Night With David Letterman

Two major changes will stxin
be taking place within ECU's
campus radio station, WZMB 91.3.
In May, WZMB will be
moving to Mendcnhall Student
Center, and a new general manager
will be taking over.
Jeff Skillen, jazz director at
WZMB, has been appointed general
manager. Recently named disc
jockey of the month, Skillen has
made plans to improve the station in
its music, sports, news and business
Skillen started his radio career
in high school at age 16 when he
held the position of music director at
WCSK, a progressive radio station,
in Kingsport, Tenn.
"I grew up listening to
alternative music Skillen said. "In
Kingsport, most kids didn't listen to
the 'Top 40' music.
"I was even a member of a punk
rock band back then, but jazz and
progressive music were still my real
According to Skillen, he did not
have lime to work at the radio
station his first two years at ECU.
"I did, however, listen to WZMB as
soon as I got here
In Junel989, he became a
rotational disc jockey, playing the
newest progressive music. His
experience playing the trumpet in a
jazz band in Greenville eventually
led him to the position of jazz
"The on-air sounds good he
said, "but the business side of the
station, as far as funding and bal-
ancing our budget, needs help.
"I want WZMB to be treated
like a regular radio station, not just
a college station. We have all of the
same things to offer
"Jeff has a good ear for music
Trey Burley, WZMB's program
director, said. "He's good with
people and very diplomatic
Formerly in Old Joyner Library,
WZMB will move this summer to
its new location. Planning for the
move has been underway for more
than a year. According to Skillen,
moving will help the staff and
station sound more professional.
The station will also be receiving
new furniture and production
WZMB has received a lot of
criticism since switching to an all-
progressive format. "The purpose of
WZMB is to give listeners
something that they can't hear on
any other channel Skillen said. "I
like some classic rock, but it breaks
our format
Skillen currently plays in a
beach music band and he is also
trying his talents out as a newscaster
at WZMB. He will become general
manager at Jhe beginning of summer
school, succeeding current general
manager Andy Forbis.

Skydiving is safe and fun
By Lori Martin
Copy Editor
For years, mankind has sought
a way to experience uninhibited
flight, and the sport of skydiving is
the closest one can come to
knowing that feeling of freedom.
"I highly recommend it
(skydiving) said ECU graduate Jeff
Bertagnolli, who made his first
jump in March at the Franklin
County Sport Parachute Center. "It
was literally the ultimate high
The parachute center, located in
Louisburg, N.C is owned and
operated by Paul Fayard. The center
offers three types of jumps for the
"The tandem parachute jump is
extremely popular for everybody
Fayard said. Through this particular
program, the skydiving student is
hooked to the instructor throughout
the jump. The instructor and the
student free fall from 10,500 feet,
and the instructor opens the chute at
4,500 feet.
During the free fall, the
skydivers travel downward at 120
miles per hour. Because of the
doubled weight of two jumpers, a
drogue chute is released immediately
after the divers leave the plane.
Without the drogue, they would fall
at 200 miles per hour, according to
Fayard. The free fall lasts about 40
seconds, and the canopy ride takes
four to six minutes.
The tandem jump requires a 30-
to 45-minute briefing and costs
SI25 for the first jump. The
Franklin County Sport Parachute
Center offers a continual training
program through which the second
jump costs SI 10. and the third and
subsequent jumps will cost the
student SI00 each. After nine
tandem jumps, the student is
allowed to make the jump without
the instructor's supervision.

Bertagnolli said. "1 didn't think I
was going to do it until after I talked
to Paul (the instructor). Then 1 was
convinced that it was safe
Bertagnolli said that he felt safe
after he learned that two parachutes
are used for all jumps. Federal
regulations require that all skydivers
have a main parachute and a reserve
chute, according to Fayard. The
reserve chute only has to be used in
about one out of every 1,500 jumps.
Another method of skydiving at
the parachute center is the static line
jump, which is an older, more
traditional approach, according to
Fayard. This program involves a
five- to six-hour briefing which
begins at 9 a.m. at the parachute
Through this program, the
student goes up in the airplane with
an instructor but will make the
jump alone from an altitude of
3,000 feet. The sky diver is hooked
to a line attached to the inside of the
plane. The chute opens immediately
on its own. and the journey to the
ground takes two and a half to three
The cost for the static line jump
is S14S per jump. The cost is
reduced to $135 per person for a
group of five to nine and S125 for
10 or more students. The parachute
center has special rates for second
and subsequent jumps. After 23
jumps, the skydiving student can
make the jump without supervision.
According to Fayard, the center has
conducted more than 20,000 static
line jumps in its 17 years of
A third program offered by the
parachute center is the accelerated
free-fall method. It involves a five-
lo six-hour briefing followed by a
jump from 10,500 feel in which the
student will be accompanied during
the jump by two instructors, one on
each side.
The cost of the accelerated free-
fall method is S275 per jump. The
student can jump without
supervision after nine jumps.
"Everyone thinks about
parachuting as having hard falls
Fayard said. However, he assures the
potential skydiver that the sport is
safe and painless if the student
follows instructions. After
practicing the tandem method for six
years and conducting more than
2,000 tandem jumps, the center has
had no injuries. "Ninety-five percent
(of the jumps) have a stand-up
landing, and the rest trip over their
own feet he said.
The Franklin County Sport
Parachute Center is open Wednesday
through Sunday from 8 a.m. until
dark. Appointments are required for
weekday jumps and are suggested for
weekend jumps.
Photographer Beth Luman can
be contracted on weekends to take
photos and video tape jumps.
Luman, a graduate student at Duke
University, has been skydiving for
five years and has completed almost
1,000 jumps.
The center is located in
Louisburg, N.C about an hour and
a half drive from Greenville. Anyone
interested in scheduling a jump can
contact Fayard at 919-496-2224.

Biking has become
a popular hobby
By Kerry Nester
Page Editor
With the introduction of the
Earthcruiser and the mountain bike,
recreational biking has steadily
become more and more popular
among college students and people
of all ages.
Gerry Smith, owner of the
Bicycle Post, said, "It is a fun bike;
one can ride it over rougher terrain
than the traditional 10-speed bike
The Earthcruiser or mountain
bike adds excitement to an everyday
outing. "The bike can be ridden over
bushes and through creeks, and
jumped over ditches Smith said.
"And it isn't that vulnerable to
Smith said that another reason
for the cruiser's increasing
popularity is its use for a means of
physical fitness. What better way to
keep in shape than riding around
town or through campus on the
mountain bike?
Recreational sports are a
favorite pastime during the spring
and summer months. Golf, tennis
and jogging are just a few of the
most popular.
However, according to Smith,
biking is quickly becoming the
wave of the future in recreational
sports. "Most of our customers tell
me they want a bike to enjoy
recreationally and physically
Smith said. "They are also interested
in starling a hobby, and biking is an
excellent one
Biking can be as expensive or
inexpensive as you decide to make
it. The mountain bikes start around
$200 and can cost into the
thousands. "For the first-time buyer,
though, the cheaper bike is
suitable Smith said.
Another option one might want
to consider is to buy the cheaper
bike and add on bicycle parts. "The
bike can be upgraded for about $200
each time by adding different
components Smith said.
Smith's remarks about biking
coincide with many students' views.
Senior Chris King said, "It's quicker
than walking to class, and I don't
have to worry about getting a

between low-impact and high-impact
aerobics is that low-impact offers

you have to work harder to keep
your energy level high during a low-

impact aerobics involves a lot of
bigger movements instead of the
short, jumping actions typically
found in a high-impact class.
Many of the aerobics classes
offer the participants the chance to
use huge, elastic rubber bands called
dyna bands. "Dyna bands add extra

you've outworked yourself. Dyna

should be coupled with a toning

combined with some sort of weight

To fully enjoy the summer,
everyone needs to break away from
the nasties of work. One of the
easiest ways is to enjoy a relaxing
afternoon of golf.
Golf is one of America's
favorite past times. It is relatively
inexpensive, and it can be enjoyed
by beginners and professionals alike.
Wesley Cobb, an assistant at
Farmville Country Club, said,
"People want to get out after the
winter and enjoy the fresh air and
good companionship
No matter where a person's
location, a golf course can be found
not far away. In Greenville, three
courses are within a 15-minute
Ayden Golf and Country Club
has an 18-hole course with a green
fee of $7. Brook Valley Country
Club also has an 18-hole course
with a green fee of $10.
For ECU students, the
Farmville Country Club offers a
special rate of $5 for 18 holes and
$3 for nine holes.
Now the golfer knows where
the best deals can be found, but what
about the equipment? Golf clubs can
be an expensive item to purchase.
Not to worry though; with an
ECU I.D. and activity card, students
can rent clubs through the ECU
department of intramural-recreational
services free of charge.
These months also provide an
opportunity to play competitively.
Each course has tournaments open
to anyone who is interested.
Farmville Country Club offers
invitational tournaments throughout
the summer. "We have super ball
tournaments made up of two- and
four-man teams Cobb said. In
these tournaments, each player on
the team hits from the same place
and the best shot is taken.
The tournaments are not worth
thousands of dollars like the ones
seen on television � only a small
trophy � but with a few side bets
between friends, a friendly
tournament can get interesting.
However, tournaments and
gambling are not everyone's style.
In fact, most people play just for the
enjoyment of the game. Playing
golf can keep anyone physically fit
for a lifetime, since it can be played
for as long as one lives.
