Budget cuts face
university again
ECU News Bureau
ECO has imposed a blanket
hiring freeze on all non-faculty
positions and is taking addi-
tional "strong measures" tocope
with a worsening budget crisis.
With a goal of savingat least
S! 7 million in the next two
months, the university will al-
low employees to take leaves of
absence without pay but with
benefits intact Dr. Richard R.
Eakin, ECU chancellor, said
there would be no layoffs "or
any action that would sacrifice
academic integrity or the qual-
ity of instruction
"I sincerely regret that these
austerity measures must be
enacted .but there is no choice
Fa kin said.
He called tor "cooperation
oi the entire university commu-
nity in view of the fad that
state allotments to ECU tor the
last six months of the fiscal year
mean that "31 percent of our
remaining operating hinds can-
not be spent
He said the fourth quarter
funding allotment was reduced
by more than $4 million and is
113 percent less than estimated
"The financial problem we
face is severe Eakin said. "It
can onlv be solved by strong ac-
tions He said the additional
cost-saving measures would
help bring the university "into
the best possible financial posi-
tion, albeit probably short of a
full solution to the problem
Eakin said the complete
hiring freeze for all state-funded,
non-faculty positions tempo-
rary, permanent and student
would be in effect at least until
lulv 1. No new employees may
begin employment prior to July
1 but he said all prior commit-
ments will be honored.

year, the SGA secretarv-elect was
officially removed from the body,
disqualifying her from any kind of
SGA interaction for one year. The

1991 with many complications.
Along with several other SGA
members, SGA Secretarv-elect
Christine Allabach was removed
from the SGA as she missed her
seventh SGA meeting. The SGA
rules state that when a member
fails to attend three meetings
without excuses or six meetings
both excused and unexcused, they
are dismissed from the body.
Furthermore, they cannot
participate in any SGA meetings,
even if they are elected or
appointed to an S( !A office.
Since Allabac h ran unopposed
in the last election, a new SGA
secretary will be elected next fall.

The East Carolinian looks ahead
As the semester conies to an end, we must
evaluate ourselves. We, as students, are in a time
ot transition in our lives, and it is important to
mark our progress and set new goals for the im-
mediate future. As managing editor oi The East
Carolinian, 1 would like to take this opportunity to
reflect back on the semester here at the newspa-
This year has brought new changes to the
newspaper � ones that I feel are positive and
appealing to the reader. The editorial staff has
joined together in mi attempt to provide timely
news, features and sports to the campus and
community. Although far from perfect, we are
getting better and better. After attending a na-
tional journalism convention in New Orleans in
November, I realized that ECU'S student newspa-
per is quite competitive with other campus news-
papers. We have one of the few completely stu-
dent-operated publications, which is something
to be proud of.
With that in mind, 1 began my duties as
managing editor in January, and I decided I was
going to push the staff for all they were worth. In
one semester, the editors of 77k East Carolinian
have worked and grown together to acheive a
common goal: to better serve you, the reader.
Since this is my last night as managing
editor, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude
to some of my fellow emplovees.
Caroline Cusick, with her biblical verses
and John Tucker, with his progressive band re-
views have blended together their contrasting
personalities to enhance and broaden the features
section. John finishes up in summer school and
will move on to pursue a career in journalism. He
passes his postion on to Deanna Nevgloski who
has been a staff writer since last fall. With one se-
mester to go at ECU, Caroline plans to stay on as
features editor.
In the sports section, a new assistant edi-
tor will take lorn Barry's place as he goes home to
Miami for the summer. (I'd go home, too!) His
sucessor has not vet been named. Hditor Mike
Martin will take my place as managing editor. The
readers ot flic East Carolinian can expect to see a
terrific newspaper under Mike's leadership. Good
luck to him in all his endeavors in the months to
come. Mike will be replaced as sports editor by
Doug Johnson.
1 must give an extra-special thanks to the
news section and Hditor Joey nkins for keeping
me up every production night waiting for him to
finish his section. As my counselor and mv dinner
buddy, loey has managed to get me through when
all else failed. Joey will serve as general manager
during the summer, as David Herring will join the
staff at USA TODAY as an intern. Joey will return
to his position in the news department in the fall.
In the meantime, Carrie Armstrong, editor of The
Entertainer, will take his place. Margi Morin, our
newest editor, will keep her position as assistant
editor of the news section.
My thanks go also to Scott Maxwell, Steve
Reid, Jimmy McKee, Pam Cope, Stuart Rosner,
Beth Lupton, Jeff Parker, Adam Cornelius and all
the other staff at The Eastt Carolinian.
The East Carolinian has assessed where it is
going. Now for each individual, each graduate,
each student, it's time to look within ourselves
and evaluate where we have been, where we are
i.nd most importantly, where we are going.

To the Editor
Questioning party reputation
To the editor:
The East Carolinian's edito-
rial last Thursday evoked the
nagging myth that ECU was
picked by Playboy magazine as a
"party school The editorial was
even morespecific in reporting "It
was just four years ago that the
university waslabeled the nation's
No. 1 party school by Playboy
This Playboy party school
story has been around for at least
25 years. Some alumni who were
here in the 1960s have sworn it
really happened, but I've never
seen a clipping or anything else to
prove thisdesignation ever existed.
The Playboy issue, awarding
this title to ECU, would be a wel-
comed addition to ECU's collec-
tion of historic papers and manu-
scripts, if it really exists, and if
anyone cares to track it down.
Otherwise, the taleshould be cred-
ited to where it belongs � in the
ECU Folklore Archive.
Except for misinformation
about the party school, the opin-
ion expressed in the editorial was
well stated.

The greening of Greenville
By Nathaniel Mead
Editorial Columnist
Yesterday millions of Ameri-
cans convened to celebrate Earth
in all its magnificence. For many
here in Greenville, the event rep-
resented a kind of birth-of-the-
earth d a chance to revel in the
beauty of thisorve-and-only green
planet and to consider ways to
keep it beautiful. The gathering at
Greenville's River Park North,
which attracted about 5,000
people, ottered citizens a chance
to explore a new ecological vision
and to ponder the emerging trans-
formation away from the rank
consumerismol the last two dec
ades toward a greener,gentler life-
style in this decade
Even a tew GuppieS (green
yuppies, also called ,n ecoyups)
arrived at River Park North to
tickle their kens with reams of in-
formation on our ailing environ-
ment. One titillating tidbit: the
energy saved by recycling one
aluminum can is enough to keep a
60 watt lightbulb lit tor three hours!
And despite the idiotic utterances
by certain mainstream publica-
tionsoverthe weekend�one I SA
Today editor spoke ot people
impassioned to preserve Nature
as "eco-geeks" there was no
evidence oi what USA today
called "greenoia the tendency to
obsess on the environment.
What moved me most about
Earth Dav was its highly positive
focus. Recurrent themes included
respect and appreciation for the
natural world, love and justice for
all species, and developing a deep
affinity with Nature. The drama
by "Earth Day Players the -
radeot Animals" (in honor ot "All
Species Pav and "Council ot
Creatures were all designed to
promote a more personal sense ot
Nature, to encourage an imagi-
nary but heartfelt dialogue with
other species who have pist as
much a right to exist on this Manet
as we do. Standing at the top of
the tood chain is fine as long as the
motives are derived from need
instead ot greed.
Farth I )ay was also an oppor-
tunity to renew concern and share
responsibility tor an incredible
problem. As learly stated in the
Worldwatch Institute's 1990State
of the World Report (by tar the
most coherent, up to date work
on global ecology, published mail
tin world's major languages), our
natural environment is coming
rapidly unraveled, not just in the
polluted Pamlico River Estuary or
the acidified forests atop Mount
Mitchell, but all over the globe.
Fromour relatively cozy academic
niche here in Greenville, Nature
seems safe, sure, and secure. But
on closer inspection it appears
we're in deep trouble and digging
in deeper every second, because'
oi rainforest devastation, for ex-
ample, about fifteen species be-
come extinct every dav!
The question ot the da not
just Earth Day, but every dav is
whether we care enough for Earth
to save our own sorrv hides by
stopping our abusive ways. We
need to acknowledge, first, the
enormous magnitude oi the mess,
and second, our role in creating it.

Professor defends registration
To the editor
This is in response to Ms. Kelly
Easterling's letter in the April 19
issue regarding the registration
system. Ms. Easterling raises a
number of excellent points, and I
applaud her thoughtful approach
to a major problem.
I have been teaching at ECU
tor seven years and serving as an
academic advisor, in various ca-
pacities, for six. The registration
system has improved dramatically
during that period. (Eew current
students remember the old pre-
compiler system, which pro-
duced lines that started in the
Memorial Gym and ran all the
way around the Brewster Build-
ing.) But Ms. Easterling is right:
the system isn't working well
This state of affairs has sev-
eral causes. One is the failure of
many faculty to take the duties of
advising seriously. There is little
tangible incentive to doa good job
of ad vising, and the sad fact is that
in the absence of tangible incen-
tives some professors, like some
students, won't do their jobs. More
than one of my colleagues think
that advising consists of hanging
an envelope full of signed forms
on one's office door.
The problem is exacerbated
by students who, deliberately or
otherwise, pervert the system.
Students miss appointments,
show up late, and do all sorts of
bizarre end runs around their
advisors. Toooften studentsdon't
bother to acquaint themselves with
the requirements of their pro-
grams, and ignore the simplest
instructions the catalogue and
their advisors give them, I'm not
burned out on advising vet
though, as on can set Pmgetting
singed around the edges But 1
understand why colleagues
who'vebeen here fifteen or twenty
years regard registration week as
an ordeal
Ms. Easterling comments
perceptively on the frustrating
realities ol closed classes. I'm
atraid her solution, a big increase
in the size of the faculty, isn't likely
to be adoptee! in the near future.
But we could alleviate the prob-
lem considerably by controlling
one major aspect oi it: the absurd
frequency with which students
drop courses. In the history de-
partment, which I think is fairly
typical, more than 350 under-
graduates drop courses in the
average semester. That's the
equivalent oi ten sections � sec-
tions that don't need to be taught.
There are plenty of legitimate
reasons for d ropping a course, bu t
at ECU the practice has become an
addictive habit. No registration
system can work properly under
such circumstances.
All parties can improve the
situation bv doing their best to
make the system work. Advisors:
Keep extended office hours dur-
ing registration week, like vou're
supposed to do. Never sign any
schedule without checking the
student's file to ensure that the
schedule advances the student's
progress, and never sign a blank
form. Computer operators: Fol-
low the rules. Never enroll a stu-
dent in a course the advisor hasn't
approved. Students: Keep your
appointments. Study and under-
stand the catalogue. Think seri-
ously about the courses you want
to take, discuss them with v
d isor, but don't expei t
advisor to do all the thinking I
you. It you have doubts al
taking a course, go see the
professor m advance. Don'l
up tor it and drop it on th l
clav ot class because you'vi
covered it requires readme
and writing papers. When .
signed up tor that course you
probably took a seat awav. fi
somebody like Ms. Easterling
Every student on thiscampus

academic advising. Give your

to the dean or the advisor's vie
partment chair, and if the situ

new advisor. Remember, though
that getting good advising doesn't
always mean getting to run your
academic career exactly as you d
like. A good advisor may stop) ou
from taking courses you want to
take and dropping courses you
want to drop.
1 am convinced that ECU'S
registration system is fundamen-
tally sound and constantly im-
proving. It will work reasonabb
well if all parties try to make it
work. If they don't the advisors,
administrators, and computer
operators won't be punished
but the student will. Asin so main

Taxpayers ban together; demand to 'cut the deck'
'Public choice" economics
uses fancy language to tell a famil-
� message: in our system of
government, thecardsarestacked
against taxpayers.
Public choice economists say
that because recipients of a gov-
ernment spending are numerous
and spread out, recipients have
the upper hand in policy debates.
They have a large amount of
money or government help at
stake, and an incentive to keep up
with legislation as it works it wav
through the labyrinthine halls (if
But taxpayers, who may be
out only a few dollars if a particu-
lar program is enacted, typically
don't follow these policy debates
as closely. While new spending
programs, if added together, can
take quite a bite out of our wallets,
each individual one is hardly no-
ticeable. That's why a public offi-
cial may receive hundreds of calls
or letters supporting a spending
program and none opposing it.
Over the past few years, how-
ever, a new kind of pressure group
has sprung up in North Carolina
and around the country to re-
shuttle thespendingdeck. Known
as taxpayers unions or citizen as-
sociations, these organizations
typically try to oppose wasteful
government Spending and make
sure services are delivered fairly
and efficiently.
In North Carolina, these
groups usually havea specific local
focus. In Folk Countv, a western
county home to many retirees and
to the most lavishly funded schtxl
system in the state. The Polk
County Taxpayers Association has
been working in recent weeks to
combat wasteful school spending.

words, procrastinate, delay the

so artfully by our broccoli-hating,

tions, who basically own George

louse1 cronies.
Let's face it, if we had a true
democracy, the government
would be acting in the interests oi
the people, not in the interests (i
the fossil fuel and nuclear indus-
tries. If we had true democracy,
our Department of Energy would
have a division for solar and other
renewable energy technologies. If
we had true democracy, there
would be laws against corporate
ownership of wilderness, not to
mention the mass media. Imagine
if all our media began focussing
on and sensationalizing the al-
ready-proven solutions to Earth's
crises�we'd clean up the planet
in no time flat.
To regain our inalienable right
to live on a clean, fertile Earth, we
will have to create a revolution in
our own personal lives, to start
living in ways that preserve and
enhance the beauty of the bio-
sphere. And as we attend to those
seemingly trivial choices we make
in everyday life, we must also
beware of those powerful people
who would like to "develop" our
communities in the name of "in-
dustrial progress These people
are everywhere, and their prime
interest is the mighty dollar. They
tend to couch their arguments in
obtuse, technical jargon and with
bland assurances that the chance
of catastrophe is small. Chances
are, they have no interest in the
health, the integrity, or even the
existence of the place you know as
home�your neighborhood or
community. Be prepared to think
globally and fight locally. The real
work begins here, today.

pressure from the association, the
board of education enacted a $238

But Polk taxpayers are still
unsatisfied, because students al-

Also, the tuition, while apparently
equal to the school system's local

association says that the county
has the highest per capita intan-
gibles tax in the state.
Frequently, the underlying
questions these groups are ask-
ing about local spending projects
are: who benefits and who pays?
In Charlotte, a group called Citi-
zens For Effective Government is
questioning the city's plans to
spend up to $43 million on land
and parking for a new football
stadium. At a time when city offi-
cials are proposing tax hikes to
fund basic services, complains
Don Reid, the group's president,
Charlotte is planning to spend
money on a sports stadium that
won't help most taxpayers.

While some taxpayers and
citizens groups do field candidates
and become heavily involved in
political campaigns, others rely on
media attention and grassroots
contacts to call attention to their
issues. A lawsuit was the strategy

Lebanese captors release

FRANKFURT, West Germany
(AP) � The first American re
leased bv pro-Iranian Lebanese
captors in nearly 3 12 years, a
frail-looking Robert Polhill,
walked slowly off a plane Mon-
day after winning freedom with
the aid of Syria and Iran.

extremely frail Monday and was
hunched over as he came down
the steps of the U.S. Air Force C-

He was dressed in a miluar
camouflage jacket and carried a

outside the hospital, where Polhill
was to undergo a medical exami-

Military spokesman Cmdr.

received other freed U.S. hostages,
could be anywhere from "a couple

Iran's foreign minister, AH
kbar Velavati, said in New York
atter the release that Iran and the
Shiite factions in Lebanon want
the Israelis to release Sheik Abdul
KanmObeid in return, the official
Syrian�Aram News Ae�v-re�
ported. Obeid was kidnapped in
south Lebanon.
President Bush, on a fishing
trip in Florida, said he would not
make any goodwill gesture just
because one hostage was freed.
"I want all of those hostages
out, we're not going to trade he
said. In a written statement, how-
ever, Bush thanked Iran and Syria.
The Tehran Times, which is
close to Rafsanjani, called in an
editorial Monday for the release
of another American hostage.
It said that as long as Israel
still holds scores of Arab prison-
ers whose release they seek, the
captors "will certainly find it hard
to comply with this request and
their position is quite understand-
Though pale and apparently
fatigued, Polhill managed to joke
with reporters shortly after being
turned over to U.S. Ambassador
Edward Djerejian in Syria.

Polhill was abducted along
with two other professors from
Beirut University College on Jan.
24, 1987 by the Islamic Jihad for
the Liberation of Palestine. The
group still holds the other two:
lesse Turner, 42, of Boise, Idaho,
and Alann Steen, a 51-year-old
Boston native.
The last American hostage to
be freed was David Jacobsen, for-
mer director of the American
University Hospital in Beirut. He
was kidnapped in Beirut on Mav
28,1985,and released Nov. 2,1986.
Hehad been held byanotherShiite
faction, Islamic Jihad, or Holy War.
The longest held Western
hostage in Lebanon is Terry A.
Anderson, chief Middle East cor-
respondent for The Associated
Press, who was kidnapped March
16, 1985.
Democrats propose budget
Congressional Democrats are
puttingtogethera 1991 budget that
ignores a flagging economy and
relies in part on dubious savings,
the White House budget director
The budget chief, Richard
Darman, said Friday that Demo-
cratic spending plans under con-
sideration are "not imple-
mentablc" because they fail to take
administration preferences into
account. But also said the attitude
of leading congressional lawmak-
ers toward budget negotiations
with the administration is improv-
"It's highly likely we could
move to negotiations in a matter
of weeks said Darman. who has
been pressing for such talks since
President Bush submitted his 1991
spending plan in January.
Darman's comments, made in
a session with reporters, marked a
continuation of his attempt to
insert the administration into
Democratic efforts to write a
budget for the vear that begins
Oct. 1.
The House Budget Commit-
tee adopted a Democratic-written
$1.24 trillion budgeton Thursday,
7 J '
and the panel's Senate counter-
part plans to begin its own work
next week.
Darman called the House
document "a slide-bv budget"
lacking serious deficit reduction,
the same criticism Democrats have
leveled at the White House's own
What Democrats and

Keith Carter, Gannett News Service
He said the Democratic plan,
which claims to reduce next year's
deficit by $36 billion, relieson $9.3
billion in savings that Democrats
themselves have called question-
able. These include improved tax
collections, user fees that have
been rejected before and "inter-
esting other gimmicks he said.
Darman said the Bush admini-
stration now believes next year's
deficit will be $8.5 billion to more
than $20 billion worse than the
SI00.5 billion shortfall it projected
in January. He attributed this to
the economy's worse-than-ex-
pected performance in recent
The Gramm-Rudman law sets
a $64 billion shortfall target for

Darman criticized Democrats
for not adjusting their proposal to
account for the poorer economic
figures. The Democratic plan calls
for $36 billion in deficit reduction,
rather than the minimum of $45

Babangida's troops
stop assassination
LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) - Mili-
tary ruler Gen. Ibrahim Babangida
appeared fi.mly in control of this
West African nation Monday af-
ter narrowly escaping death in a
coup attempt.
President Babangida said his
troops had crushed a coupattempt
Sunday after fierce fighting with
rebel soldiers, who said they aimed
to end domination oi the govern-
ment bv Moslem northerners.
Traffic jammed the roads of
the sprawling coastal capital
Monday, and the only extraordi-
nary security in sight was around
Bonny Camp on Victoria Island,
whererebelscaptured in the failed
coupattempt were believed held.
Senior commanders and other
members of Babangida's Armed
Forces Ruling Council pledged
their support to the president
Sunday evening.
The mutineers, led bv middle-
ranking officers, attacked before
dawn Sunday in the West African
nation's capital and engaged loy-
alist forces for about 1 hours in
gun and mortar battles.
They captured state-run Ra-
dio Nigeria offices and announced
that the government had been
overthrown. But Babangida's
forceslater retook the station after
what state media described as
"heavy bombardment and spo-
radic shooting
There was no word on how-
many people were killed in the
fighting, but reporters said casu-
alties appeared heavy.
The fighting began at 2 a.m.
Sunday with an attack on Dodan
Barracks, the military headquar
ters where Babangida has his resi-
The president escaped mo-

Mercury linked to problems
RALEIGH (AP) � Although
thereisno hard scientific evidence
linking mercury in dental fillings
to health problems, foes of the
substance say there is no proof
that the amalgam fillings are safe
The mercury-curious were
beckoned to a recent international
symposium by pamplets, books
and videotapes costing $3.50 to
$67.30 with titles like "Silver
Dental Fillings �The Toxic Time
Bomb" and "Infertility and Birth
Defects � Dental Amalgam a
Hidden Cause?"
"I think what weattempted to
do in this conference was to bring
the best evidence that we had to a
public forum said Michael Hom-
ing, a Durham dentist and mod-
erator of the symposium.
Homing, who described him-
self as one of the more moderate
anti-amalgamists, said there is
evidence of patients withdramatic
recoveries even from multiple

firm diagnosis of MS was never

Each nugget of evidence link-
ing mercury with anything from
depression and divorce to cata
racts and constipation drew ap
plause. Each barb aimed at the
American Dental Association
drew knowing chuckles
Such daimsdraw attacks from
the ADA and conventional den
fists, who accuse amalgam toes of
using scare tactics to fatten their
wallets by replacing durable sil-
ver with more expensive materi-
als that would have to be replaced
more often.
"It's just never-ending trouble
for us said Dr. Enid Neidle, di-
rector of scientific affairs for the
ADA. "We believe that it is the
most cost-effective, safest, forgiv-
ing dental restorative material. We
are absolutely persuaded that it's
safe, and yet we are constantly

"It's really unfortunate that
somebody with Alzheimer's or
leukemia or multiple sclerosis
would be led to believe that this is

He said some mercury foes
charge $1,500 for a consultation
and otter to diagnose problems bv
mail for $300.
Fleming admitted there is
scant evidence to prove mercury

Vessel search unsuccessful
18-hour search for a vessel re-
ported missing off Cape Hatteras,
N.C turned up no sign of the craft
or the five people on board, the
Coast Guard said.
The Coast Guard searched for
the vessel until about midnight
Sunday, said Lloyd Nelson, chief
petty officer with the Coast
Guard's Fifth District in
Portsmouth. The search resumed
early Monday, an official at the
Cape Hatteras Coast Guard office
Ham radio operators in Bel-
gium and Spain overheard a
Mayday call from the vessel, Nel-
son said Sunday. The Belgian
operator notified the Coast Guard
in his country, which notified the
U.S. Coast Guard at 4:06 a.m.
Sunday, he said.
A Coast Guard cutter, heli-
copter and airplane began search-
ing at 6a.m. Sunday for the craft at
6 a.m. Sunday and an airplane
with radar continued to search
Sunday night.
Nelson said the call said the
vessel was flooding and those on
board were preparing to abandon
ship and get into a small dinghy.
Those on board also said they
would shoot two red rocket flares
before abandoning the vessel. The
flares were not spotted.

Roebuck, r7. She had abdominal

Mrs. Roebuck suffered mis-
carnages, monthly hemorrhaging
and finally had a hysterectomy in
which surgeons found tumors in
her pelvis. Roebuck said. At one
point her gall bladder was re-
moved and doctors found she had
the kind of liver dysfunction asso-
ciated with heavy drinking, al-
though she never touched alco-
hol. '
Eventually, she had her rner-
cury-amalgam fillings removed
and began to improve, Roebuck
It's incontestable that mer-

1 Knnng said 8,000 studies
document that mercury leaks from
amalgam fillings, lodges in the
body'sorgans, including the brain,
and can transfer in even greater
concentrations to the developing'
fetus by a pregnant woman.
Fleming said studies suggest
that mercury inhaled from fillings
can exceed the Occupational
Safety and Health
Administration's recommended
levels for the workplace. Others
have indicated up to 20 percent of
dental patients have problems
stemming from mercury in their
fillings, he said
Even the ADA admits a sig-
nificant number of people are al-
lergic to mcrcurv in fillings, Flem-
ing said.
But Ms. Neidle says not re-
ally. The ADA once said no more
than 1 percent of the population
has those alIcrgics, "bu t we hadn' t

"We did a survey and found less

just so rare that you can't put a

She repeated the ADA'S
printed policvthatamalgam "does
not pose a health hazard to the
non-allergic patient. To advocate
to a patient or the public the re-
moval of clinically serviceable

a material that is used in such a
widespread fashion which has a
serious adverse impact attached

But Ms Denton said studies
of dentists and dental hvgienists
in Lithuania. England and the
United States show a higher inci-
dence ot miscarriages and birth
defects among women in those
professions than among those in

N.Cbased engineering firm with
offices m Greenville, in Septem-
ber formed a joint venture with
Puke Power Co. to build cleaner

Puke, a Charlotte-based util-
ity, estimated the new legislation
would cost it as much as $400
million a year in new equipment
and higher operating costs after
the vear 2000. The costs could
require a rate increase from 10
percent to the low teens, Duke
spokesman Jim Maher said.
Ron Green, president of the
Daniel, said that during the next
six years, utilities are expected to
spend as much on refitting their
existing plants to meet the law's
requirements as they spend on
new plants.
"It's going to create a market
for new, clean-burning facilities
to replace those that must be re-
tired he said, adding the clean
air legislation will also create a
multi-billion dollar market for coal
stack scrubbers for existing plants.
The new joint venture recently
reached an agreement with South
Carolina Electric and Gas Co of
Columbia to investigate the con-
struction of a 350-megawatt coal
plant which would use the new
methods to burn cleaner than
conventional coal plants. Several
sites in the state are being consid-

Barefoot results in

Thisycar, theStudent Union's

The weather acted as if it was
as calculated and as timed as the
day's events, providing students
with a perfect spring stomping
ground for the day's festivities.
And stomp the students did.

bership on the athletic committee
to include eight members of the
faculty, ftveof who are tobeelected

The t.u ulty thus would have
eight votes among the 13 voting
members on the committee, and

members, there are five e-officio

Though dorm socials may
ignite excitement and many courses
provide challenges, what may seem
lo be minor problems can often
cause "minor warfare" in a dorm�
especially Greene Residence Hall.
Greene Hall residents complain
that the change machine does not
work as it should, the elevators keep
gelting stuck about every other
week, the ice machine makes the ice
and then it melts it, and the mail
carrier delivers at different times and
to the wTong addresses.
Because of this, the House
Council of Green Hall has been
meeting weekly to discuss the
problems in the dorm. As a result.
House Council made petitions for

she thought that it was a great idea.

that they have a voice and the people
have to listen to us
By the end of the week that the
residents petitioned, a new ice
machine was delivered. In addition,
the new mail carrier delivers the
mail promptly and to the correct
One of the problems that
remain is the "ever-breaking" change
machine. If you use this machine,
you may not get enough change, or
the machine may not take any bills,
or it may keep a bill without giving
any change.
Kathie Brooks, resident adviser
of the sixth floor, said: "When I put
a dollar in that machine, my little
dollar just got sucked up in there. I
know I got a lot of change coming
back to me that I've lost because
this isn't the first time this
happened to me
The elevators arc another
problem. They get caught between
floors so much that many Greene
Hall residents are getting used to
climbing the stairs. One resident
said: "Those elevators are always
breaking down. Even when they are
working, they start sounding weird
Godwin said that the
maintenance workers arc waiting for
an order to come in so that the
elevators can be fixed.

to teach in the semesters to come,
and this is raising questions about
ECU's policy in regard to hiring
faculty members.
ECU's self-impoi regulation
specifically establishes a six-year
limit on fixed-term appointments for
faculty members who do not hold a
doctoral degree. According to some
faculty members, if they do not
complete a Ph.D. by the end of six
years, they have to stop teaching at
ECU, regardless of their qualities
and experience.
Some people do not consider
this policy, aimed at promotion of a
highly qualified faculty, to be in the
best interest of the teachers and,
consequently, of the students. The
regulation affects teachers in various
ECU departments and raises a
controversy that takes root in
divergent conceptions of education.
Some faculty members wonder if
research�and fame�are to be the
ultimate goal even at the expense of
efficient teaching.
On the one hand, Elizabeth
Dupree, lecturer in the math
department, said that people were
informed of this policy when they
were first hired. They have six years
to complete their degrees, which
seems long enough, according to Dr.
Martin Schwarz, chairman of the
foreign languages department.
Schwarz added: "There arc many
qualified people with terminal
degrees looking for a job. Those
people should be given preference
over people who do not have
terminal degrees He also said that
if ECU is to get more graduate pro-
grams, more qualified teachers will
be required.
However, teachers affected by
this resolution can be devoted to
their jobs. Sociology teacher Delcne
Rhea said, "I enjoy leaching; I enjoy

If you are looking for a house
or an apartment to rent with a few
friends beginning next fall, be wary.
April is the best month to start the
search, says Homelocators agent
Steve Crawlcy.
Through the Homelocators
service, students, and others, can pay
S50 for a compiled list of homes and
apartments available for rent in
Greenville and the surrounding areas.
Once the money is paid, the
agency asks each group of potential
renters the specifics on what they are
looking for, including information
on number of bedrooms desired,
pets, range near campus and the
amount of money they want to
spend monthly.
The agent then gives potential
renters a number to call about twice
a week to check for the type of place
they have specifically requested.

the residences are often rented out as
soon as the listings come in.
The Homelocators service
guarantees customers that they will
find a place within four months.
Yet, for students, they extend the

Crawlcy said the most popular
area that students rent runs from
Fifth Street to the Tar River and the
downtown Greenville area.
Greenville has a law that does
not allow more than three unrelated
people to live together in the same
home or apartment. Some area
landlords overlook the number of
residents per dwelling, and some do
not. The Homelocators service
advises students in matters
concerning this law.

WalkAmcrica 1990 for
Greenville will be held on April 28
from 9 a.m. until about 2 p.m. The
annual five-mile walk, sponsored by
the March of Dimes Birth Defects
Foundation, will begin and end at
the Elm Street Gym.
The Greenville Jaycces, co-
sponsoring the Greenville walk, ex-
pect 250 people to participate in this
year's walk.
Walkers may participate indi-
vidually or in teams.
This year, Chancellor Richard
Fakin is the honorary chairman for
the Greenville walk. Drew Steele,
the 5-ycar-old son of Mike and
Sandy Steele, is the child ambas-
sador. The two will start off the

Crusty's Pizza and Coca-Cola
will provide refreshments for the
walkers when they finish, and there
will be two checkpoints stationed
along the walk. The March of
Dimes also plans to post along the
walk route "Burma-Shave" signs
lhat give health facts in a question-
and-answer format.
Promotional prizes will be
given by local sponsors for out-
standing walkers, such as the walker
who raises the most money or the
team that raises the most per capita.
Regional sponsors for
WalkAmcrica include WDLX-FM,
WITN-TV, Kibun seafood products,
Slim-Fast and K mart. The regional
sponsors give financial support and
promotional backing to the event in
all the towns that are served by the

Last year, the March of Dimes
raised about $7000 from
WalkAmcrica. This year's goal is
$10,000, Rhoades said.
Ninety percent of the proceeds
from the walk go directly to the
community, according to Sybil
Huggins of the March of Dimes.

Much of the money is spent educat-
ing people about promoting healthy
births and preventing birth defects
and infant mortality, the main goal
of the March of Dimes.
North Carolina has the most
infant deaths in the United States,
with a statewide death rate of more
than 12 percent in 1988. In Pitt
County, the infant death rate was 19
percent in 1988. That is a higher
infant death rate than any other in-
dustrialized country, and it is higher
than many Third World countries.
Students interested in finding a
summer job should look further than
the want ads. Finding a summer job
is not an easy task, but one helpful
place that few people think about is
temporary services.
Manpower Temporary Services,
located at 118 Rcade St has oppor-
tunities for people interested in in-
dustrial, clerical and general office
The service recommends that
people wanting a summer job call a
week in advance. The procedure for
the program includes:
� going through an orientation
� testing for dexterity, details
and typing, and
� learning word processing
skills required for general
office jobs.
Once testing is completed, jobs
can be found to suit the person's
skills. "It sometimes takes a day or
two to find a job, but no more than
a week said B.J. Watson, service
representative for Manpower.
Pay rates may vary depending
on the job. According to Watson,
industrial jobs pay S3.95-S4.25 an
hour. Clerical jobs pay S4-S5 an

Ticketing complaint
By Janie Smith
Even with all the negative
r porting, ECU has more supporters
than realized.
On Feb. 27, in the Greensboro
News & Record, an article was
published that was headlined "Ex-
ECU coach named in Shacklcford
probe In response to the article, an
ECU supporter wrote a letter to the
editor blasting the News &. Record
for its biased reporting.
Despite the headline, the only
involvement ECU had with the
Shackleford point shaving incident
at NCSU was an cx-baskctball
coach. Larry Gillman, the ex-coach,
coached at ECU for two seasons,
almost 12 years ago. This was years
before Shackleford even attended
If Gillman had been a coach at
any other North Carolina University
and involved in such a scandal, it
would have been hidden somewhere
in the article, if reported at all.
However, the News & Record
placed this information in the
headline for everyone to see.
Whatever happened to the
headline-writing rules all good
journalists learn? The headline is
supposed to highlight the contents
of the story.
With the school fighting to win
the respect of the state, the headline
provides another obstacle to over-
come before acceptance as a
competing university can be
established. Battling with a medium
who prefers the color blue can be an
endless effort.
For all intended purposes, the
headline was not false. However,
when one thinks about all the
people who get their news while
skimming the headlines, one begins
to wonder what kind of opinions
people are forming about the
Pirates, especially when they read a
headline such as this.
As it stands now, it is obvious
which schools are preferred in the

day it will not be so obvious.

Why are students not given a
break for taking care of their short-
term business' Maybe it is because

number of tickets issued.
A parking deck at the bottom of

park for a short lime if we leave our
hazard lights on. This will let the

Public smoking grows unpopular

You arc in a bar with friends
when the best-looking person you
have ever seen walks by you. You
immediately follow the vision of
perfection. You watch every move

rette is lit.
More and more the sight of a
cigarette is causing heads to turn�
the other way. Cigarette smoking, at

the past.
Guidelines for
hiring minorities
By Valeria Lasslter
In the past year, I have noticed a
positive change in the recruiting of
minority faculty at ECU. By no
means is the job complete. Last
year, where the university gained six
new minority faculty, it also lost
six minority faculty.
Curious as to what was behind
the active search for more minority
faculty, I spoke with Equil
Opportunities Employment Officer
(EOE) Dr. Mary Ann Rhodes.
Rhodes says, "One of the reasons for
the increase is that the
administration believes a university
which reflects diversity is the
essence of a university
ECU is an Equal Opportunity
Employer and Affirmative Action
institution. Many see Affirmative
Action as a negative, but Rhodes
says no one at ECU is hired who is
not qualified.
The university has different
ways of recruiting minority faculty.
For example, advertising positions
and interviews justified and approved
by the EOE Officer help attract
minority faculty. Positions arc also
sent to predominantly black
colleges. Ads arc placed in minority
publications. The university
allocates money so that departments
can bring in possible employees for
One of the most creative
programs that the university uses to
deal with the small number of
minority faculty is the Minority
Initiative Program. The program
brings in minority visiting
professors so that students can have
exposure to minority faculty, while
the university builds its minority
Rhodes says, "ECU for the
future hopes to continue to sensitize
people to diverse culture The
university's persistence in seeking
more minority facculty is
representative of a university trying
to meet the needs of students.
Every opportunity

By Valeria Lasslter
Wake up black students! We
complain about the university not
providing a positive environment for
us to develop. But in the past monih
the university has had The Black
Octave, an Affirmative Action
Debate, a South Afrikanner speaker
and an African Art exhibit. My
question is, where were you black
Another area where we as black
students have definitely not been
seen is in the extensive use of the
minority affairs office. African-
American students-many of the
black students before us did not have
the oppportunities that we have
today. We should see every
opportunity as our last one.
While attending those programs
mentioned earlier, I was embarassed
when I saw that I could count, the
number of black people at these
functions on my hand. And I do not
exaggerate. Wc cannot blame the
university if it cuts out or cuts back
on programs geared toward black
students because we do not support
the ones that are already here. If
nothing else, we should attend to
show respect to the visiting
scholars or artists.

Setting goals for success
By Valeria Lassiter
"Unless wc are moving forward
toward an objective, we will fall�
and fail A goal is an objective.
Goals provide individuals with a
direction and focus, hopefully, on
something constructive. Often you
hear of people becoming frustrated
but yet are unable to come to a
conclusion why. A lack of focus
could be the key to the chaos that
might exist.
The people who have goals
achieve far more than those who do
not, and those who have written
goals achieve the most of all.
Forrest Patton. a motivational
speaker, conducted a study of alumni
10 years out of Harvard to find out
how many were achieving their
goals. The study found that 83
percent had no goals at all. Fourteen
percent had specific goals, but they
were not written down. Their
average earnings were three times
what those in the 83 percent group
were earning. However, the 3
percent who had written goals were
earning 10 times that of the 83
percent group.
Writing goals is no easy task.
A narrowing of focus is the first
step toward getting what you want.
We can all come up with many
things that we want to do or
become, but to obtain these things,
we must choose one piece of it and
decide that is the one to go for first.
Throughout the goal setting, you
may have to modify, discard or
replace your goals.
Goal setting is a three-step
process, says Dr. Michael LeBouf,
author of Working Smart. First,
there should be a lifetime goal,
which sums up the results you most
want to accomplish over the course
of your life. Second, establish your
immediate goals-what you wish to
accomplish in less than a year. The
last step is to list your daily goals�
what do you want to do today?
For some, this may be an
overwhelming process when
confronted with detailing lifelong
But lifetime goals function as
the keystone to the rest of the goals
Some theorists argue that it is best
to start small and gain experience in
accomplishing something.
Achieving goals is work.
Strategies should be developed,
asking yourself. What is your target
date? When will you achieve the
goal? Then, write it and the goal
itself down. Most people think
about their goals but fail to commit
to them. Writing them down is a
commitment to the goal.

handle this
Dear Rita,
Two months ago, my boy friend
and I agreed not to go out without
each other. Now, he is going out of
town this weekend to a business
meet ing and insisLs on going to a bar
r lounge wilh his friends. I said I
would not go along with mat. I
reminded him about our agreement,
and he still insists on going out. I
will bo in Greenville all weekend
studying and keeping my part of the
agreement. He says he thinks I'm
being unfair and should change my
mind and agree with his "bar
hoppiag He says 1 do not trust him
il I don't let him go. Rita, it's not
trust that I lack 1 just do not want to
go back on my word, and he
shouldn't cither. Should I give in lo
him or stick to our agreement'
What should I do?
Dear Whal,
If your boyfriend is not
committed to you in his heart, then this
agreement will noi make the
difference. "He who is convinced
againsi his own will is of the same
opinion still I would suggest to let
him go to the bar and re-evaluate the
relationship later. Love springs from a
commitment, nol from a feeling, and
trust is an offspring of love.
Dear Rita,
I'm involved in a long-distance
relationship. Circumstances have
made it impossible for my girlfriend
and me lo be together for at least
another two years. We're both fairly
patient and trust each other implicitly.
but I'm concerned that she will
eventually get tired of wailing and
start dating other people. Any advice
Dear Patient,
If you bolh were committal to
each other in your hearts before these
circumstances, then the time and
distance will nol separate you. In the
process of waiting, you may find out if
this is really what you bolh want.
Dear Rita,
I recently met the girl of my
dreams. My feelings for her run deep,
but I don't know if she feels the same.
Four months ago, when we first met,
we had several phone conversations
before going out From these calls, I
learned two things: 1) She has
currently broken off a four-year
from her. Our first dales were
excellent, and I thought this was the
one I wanted to marry, but lately she
doesn't return my phone calls, but will
talk lo her ex for hours and acls as if
she's doing me a favor when she
comes over. She insists thai I am not
mere just lor convenience and that she
and her ex arc just friends. Do you
think she is jusi using me in case things
with the old flame don't work out?
Dazed and Confused
Dear Dazed,
It's almost impossible to end a
relationship and safely get into
another one without a lapse of lime
(maybe six months or more) and for
some, more or less time than others.
Your friend probably has security
on her mind when she tells you that
you're nol for convenience and
she's just friends with her ex. The
talking that they arc doing may
cause things to smooth out between
them. Cool it! Give her some space.
Dear Rita,
I normally avoid blind dates,
but I recently allowed some friends
to"sct me up Now that I have gone
out with this person a few times, the
people who set us up are really
bugging me about the stale of our
relationship. I know they are just
concerned but I hate that kind of
pressure. What should I do?
Dear Pressured,
Your friends probably feel
responsible for whal is going on
with this relationship because they
initiated it in the first place. You can
just tell them everything is coming
along okay and don't get into your
intimate business.

ECU tennis coach: man of ideals
ly David McCreary
The bespectacled man sitting at
his desk said: "I never washed cars or
mowed grass when I was growing
up The only way I ever made any
money was by stringing tennis
rackets or teaching tennis lessons
In many respects, he is a model
example of a man who is committed
to the game of tennis.
The man. Bill Moore, not only
�serves as the tennis director at East
Carolina University, but holds a
doctorate from the University of
Virginia in sport psychology and
teaches an undergraduate motor
learning course
"A lot of people dont realize
that it's quite a unique opportunity
lo teach and coach at a Division 1
school Moore said. "I work 70
hours a week, minimum, but I'm
able to do it because I'm interested
in developing athletes
Moore, a 31-year-old Edcnton,
N.C native, founded a sport
psychology consulting agency in
1987 called Performance
Fundamentals. According to Moore,
the primary focus of Performance
Fundamentals is to "assist
competitive athletes in the
acquisition of psychological skills
which are fundamental to elite per-
Skills such as confidence,
concentration and composure arc
developed through individualized
psychological training programs,
where athletes strive for excellence.
"Mental skills are just as
important as physical skills Moore
said. "Both are very similar in
terms of learning them and teaching
them. Physical skills such as
technique of the forehand and
backhand are worked on in practice.
But the mental skills arc more
applied to match play situations.
"For instance, we have a saying
on our team: 'Don't let your play
affect your attitude ; let your attitude
affect your play Players need to
realize that they can be mentally
tough and still be a nice person
When time permits, Moore
enjoys lecturing and conducting
workshops throughout the nation for
parents, coaches and athletes.
"I've especially enjoyed
working with parents Moore said.
"I can go to a tournament and meet
with a group of parents and throw
out issues that they are dealing with
regarding their children
Moore encourages parents to
help their children pursue non-tennis
interests and also to emphasize the
importance of having a good time.
"One of the most challenging
aspects of tennis is to make it fun
Moore said. "There's no doubt in
my mind that when people have fun,
they play a whole lot better
Moore's advice to parents
regarding a child's performance
includes not pressuring the child
about winning and losing, not
forcing a child to practice and not
interfering with a child's coach.
"Negative reinforcement, criticism
and pressure can often cause a child
to give up and quit playing tennis
Moore said.
In regards to working with other
people in his sport psychologist
role. Moore shared an interesting
fact about his consultation with
other college teams and coaches.
"I had a real good business with
college teams, but as soon as I
became a Division 1 coach, they
(team coaches) didn't ask mc to
come back Moore said. "It's an
ego thing. These coaches don't want
another coach at their level coming
to work with their players

Don't walk, take a hike!
Safety tips for discovering the trails of the U.S.
By David McCreary
If you are like me. the extent of
outdoor spring or summertime
activity includes tossing a worn-out
frisbee or basking on the fervid sand
of Atlantic Beach. But after several
weeks of the same old routine,
maybe it's time for a change. Time
for something different. Something
really adventurous.
Well, how about hiking?
Sounds kinda interesting doesn't it?
Of course the type of hiking I'm
talking about is not your everyday
tnek from College Hill to the
General Classroom Building, but a
full-scale backpack-and-boots
Now you may be asking, "What
benefits does hiking have to offer?"
Perhaps the aesthetic beauty of the
wilderness is enough to lure you to
inis activity. Hundreds of trails are
laid out throughout the United
States presenting hikers with a first-
hand view of nature that can't quite
be captured by watching "National
Geographic Explorer Hiking gives
you a chance to entirely escape civi-
lisation and to likely see a beauti-
ful .tumbling mountain stream or a
while-tailed deer.
How about "it's just great exer-
cise"? Walking over relatively long
distances for recreational purposes
seems immensely popular within
the established wilderness. Hiking
could very well be the healthiest
sport in which to engage oneself. It
exercises almost every muscle in the
body, including the heart, and helps
the body's vital organs function
more efficiently.
Hiking can also be a chance to
encounter peacefulness and serenity.
"Hiking is an invigorating physical
and spiritual experience said hiker
Carl Fisher, 31. of Greenville. "It
gives me a chance to get in touch
with nature and to enjoy a sense of
peacefulness not found anywhere
So, now that you've been given
the benefits, you're probably moti-
vated enough to give this hiking
thing a try. All you need now is
some bask information about proper
garb, gear and safety precautions.
1. Nothing is more important
to a hiker's comfort than the right
kind of clothing and hiking gear.
Because the hiker travels by foot, a
wise choice in footwear is a must.
Tennis shoes may be suitable for an
afternoon outing, but for longer
treks, the hiker should have shoes
with sturdy soles and ankle-support-
ing leather tops.
2. In addition to food and cloth-
ing, the following provisions should
suffice: mummy-type sleeping bag,
canteen, all-purpose pocketknife,
first-aid kit, flashlight, 25- or 50-
foot length rope, toilet articles, wa-
terproofed matches, insect repellant.
poncho, compass and trail maps.
Most of these items can be carried
comfortably in a backpack.
3. Where there arc trails, there
arc bound to be several hazards.
Some basic rules of "good trailcraft"
include knowing physical limita-
tions, being wary of the heat and
watching out for wildlife. Veteran
hikers certainly know the wisdom of
resting about 10 minutes after each
hour on the trail. The body should
be replenished with plenty of liquid,
and the hiker should consider a good
sunscreen lotion.
Since most trails lead through
the domain of wild creatures, en-
countering a few snakes is possible.
Except for being biting or slinging
nuisances to hikers, insects are gen-
erally harmless, and snakes can be
avoided by watching where you step.
If you are interested in a hiking
trip, contact the department of in-
tramural-recreational services at 757-

N.Cs vast 'Graveyard of the Atlantic'
ly Stave Baktr
Discover a suspenseful and
captivating one-of-a-kind sport:
discover scuba diving. Th�
unusually close proximity of the
Gulf Stream and shallow shoals
have created an exclusive treasure to
North Carolina's coast known as the
"Graveyard of the Atlantic
More than 2,000 ships have
fallen victim to unpredictable waters
and fog in the past 300 years and
now rest (one to 40 miles offshore)
in 30 to 300 feet of water, some
�till awaiting exploration.
Each sunken ship is home to
entire marine communities on
intricate shapes and entrancing
colors. Many are tropical oases due
to the Gulf Stream's warm, year-
round water temperatures.
Venturing into this undersea
world can be dangerous. However,
giant strides in safety and
convenience have been made since
the days of Jacques Cousteau. To
legally dive, one must be certified
through a professional organization
such as National Association of
Underwater Instructors (NAUI).
ECU offers certification in
many levels that includes up to
seven course credit hours and can
save more than $1,000 in expenses.
Basic Scuba Diving carries three
credit hours and costs $150
compared to $275 for a non-student.
Two sections of the diving class
will be offered next fall to teach the
knowledge and skills required for
certification. Included in the price is
the rental of all necessary equipment
and six dives off the North Carolina
coast. Students must pass a swim
test and buy the text before taking
the course.
Upon completion, numerous
dive boats leave from Wilmington
and Nags Head, which can be
chartered to various sites where
wrecks occurred

did not become a touring pro, he
answered: "I didn't really like the

Not surprisingly, Moore's
coaching philosophy is similar to
that of Performance Fundamentals.
"One of my main objectives is lo
keep things personable, but at the
same time I want to be tough
Moore said.
"It's called tough love. Easy
love is letting a person do whatever
the hell they want to do. Tough love
is kicking a person in the butt for
their own benefit. My role as a
coach is to give these people tough

Outdoor recreation, club sports
and intramural sports are three dif-
ferent areas of IRS. which pit teams
and individuals against nature or
others in a friendly atmosphere.
Mize said that although the spirit of
competition is a big part of athletics.
IRS concentrates on participation
rather than competition.
The outdoor recreation pro-
gram is designed to provide stu-
dents with the opportunity to enjoy
nature through the use of equipment
and information provided by the
IRS department.
Camping gear and other equip-
ment may be rented out on a daily,
weekend or extended basis, and
rates arc determined accordingly.
Adventure trips, such as kayaking,
hang gliding and windsurfing are a
few of the activities planned each
semester by IRS.

ward organized sports, men what

Financing of a club sport is left
mainly to the members, but limited
funding is available through the IRS
department in several areas.
East Carolina offers one of the
finest intramural sports programs
around, and students can participate in
several divisions. Independent, Fra-
tcmitySorority and Co-Rcc divisions
arc designed so mat no matter your
sex, skill or organization affiliation,
you arc eligible lo participate in the
activity of your choice.
Current official sport rules, with a
few modifications for intramurals,
govern each event. This allows win-
ning teams to participate against other
schools in extramural play.
Flag football, basketball, volley-
ball and tennis arc some of the many
events offered by IRS. Last fall 6,97
students participated in IRS events
with almost 40 percent of the male
students playing and nearly 20 percent
of the females.
Even i f you do not want to play on
a team or participate in a planned
event, you can still keep fit by making
use of the many IRS facilities. IRS
offers different levels of aerobics
classes, jogging and exercise trails.
Basketball courts, a swimming
pool and a weight and exercise room
arc located in Memorial Gym while
Minges Coliseum houses a gymna-
sium, natalorium with separate diving
tank and handbaliracquctball courts.
A total of 10 tennis courts arc located
next to Minges Coliseum and on Col-
lege Hill.
Due to the increasing number
of students and faculty who partici-
pate in and use the IRS facilities.
Mizc and her staff are trying to gain
support for a new Student Recrea-
tion Center. Mie said she believes
that a new student recreation center
will entice more students to partici-
pate in IRS activities as well as lure
prospective freshman.
The present recreation center,
which is housed in Memorial Gym,
was built in the early 1950s and
space has become limited. The
proposed SIS.1) million center
would have 165,fXK) square feet and
contain six basketball courts, 14
racquetball courts and a cardiovas-
cular and weight center.

If you are wondering where
you can find out when a particular
eveni is g nng to be held or w here to
