New program
fights drugs
By Carrie Armstrong
News Editor
Last month North Carolina
began a program designed to stop
production ot the state's number
one cash crop marijuana.
"Operation: Marijuana
Watch" wasdcveloped to tight the
growing and harvesting ot man
juana in North Carolina. The pro
gram was funded bv a $10,000
grant from me Governor's Crime
Commission. The money was used
to cover the cost of the signs and
printed materials, both ot which
were produced by inmate labor ot
N.C. Prison Enterprises 1 he watch
is being coordinated by I t (!o
lim Gardner, who serves as chair
manol the N.C. Drug abinel and
secretary dean ot his department's
Crime Prevention Division.
Under the program, landown-
er! sign a contract with the state
that gives local and state law en-
forcement officials permission to
enter the landowner's property to
apprehend and arrest drug grow-
ers. It also allows them to search
for and observe the growth ot ille-
gal drugs
Landowners who sign a con-
tract with the state are provided
with signs to post on their prop-
erty indicating their participation
in "Operation Marijuana Watch
These signs, which are diamond
shaped and read "Marijuana
Watch'areabouithesieofastop
sign. They show law entorcement
officials that the property can be
legally entered and they also act as
a deterrent to marijuana growers.
According to Tina Wilson,
press secretary for Lt. Gov. Gard-
ner, 150 land owners representing
two million acres have already
signed up for the project. So far
ot the state's 100 counties are ac-
tively involved, including several
landowners within Pitt County.
I n addition to the special signs,
Undownersareatso provided with
training material on how to spot
marijuana growing in fields and
what to do if they find it. The
number to the statewide toll-free
hotline, 1-800-POT-WATCH, is
given to the participants to report
marijuana findings or provide
answers to any questions thev
might have.
Prug dealers do not usually
grow marijuana on their own land
because thev do not want to face
the risk of asset forfeiture said
Lt. Gov. Gardner. "That makes
law abiding corporate and private
landowners easy and likely tar-
gets for marijuana growers
Wilson s.ud that although no
funds have been allocated for
advertising the program, thev still
expect it to bo successful The idea
for "Operation: Marijuana Watch"
came about last tall, and since the
initiation of the program last
month it has generated a lot of
interest, including an article in the
April 14 edition ot Time magazine
Wilson said "Operation: Mari-
juana Watch" is open to any N.C.
property owner, regardless ot the
amount or size of the land, and
there is no fee for participation.

ECU students join exchange program
ECU News Bureau
A group of ECU students will
be in for some new experiences
when thev begin their classes next
fall.
Kevin Amos of Charlotte will
explore the desert of New Mexico
while he attends the University of
New Mexico in Albuquerque.
PatrickStanforth will test hisSpan
ish at the Universitv of Puerto Rico
in San luan. And Lee Ann Vierow
ot Jacksonville will learn the hula
when she attends the University
el 1 lawanManoa
The students are among a
group oi h from ECU who will
spend Irom one to two semesters
at other campuses around the
country under a program known
as the National Student Exchange.
While thev are away, 20 students
from other universities will be
enrolled as exchange students at
ECU.
ECU joined the exchange pro-
gram last year and is currently one
of 90 colleges and universities in
the United Statesand its territories
participating in the program a
program that was developed on a
much smaller scalealmost 25 years
ago. Two other North Carolina
schools, North Carolina State
Universitv and UNC-C harlotte,
are also involved.
Getting involved in the pro-
gram is easy, according to Stepha-
nie Evancho, the ECU coordinator
of the program which is handled
through the Office of International
�studies.
"Students pay a S0 applica-
tion fee and their regular ECU
tuition, she said "Thev pay room
and board at the institution where
they are pl.u ed
Students get redit tor the
hours thev complete at the other
campuses and the credit counts
towards their graduation at ECU.
The actual grades are not trans-
ferred
"The advantage is in expand-
ing the student's honons and
getting access to courses that may
not be taught here. Evancho said.
Eor example one student, Lee Ann
Vierow, of Jacksonville, is going to
Hawaii for instruction in Asian
and Polynesian dancing. Vierow
is a dance major at ECl
"She will be getting a whole
different variety of dance courses
that are unavailable at ECU
Evancho said.
But as one might expect, there
is also the possibility a student
will be more attracted to another
campus and want to change
schools.
"That happened last fall said
Fvancho. "One of our political
science students went to Towson
State in Maryland and liked the
political science department there
and the school's closeness to
nation's capital so much that he
transferred she said.
"But two out-of-state students
who were exchange students at
ECU last fall are transferring here
she added
1 he exchange program at ECU
and at other North Carolina
schools stipulates that the number
of exchanges madedunngthe year
be equally divided between the
studentscominginand thosegoing
out Students may sign up for ei-
ther the fall or spring semester or
both
In its tirst year there wereonlv
four ECU students who signed up
for placement s Evancho could
accept only tour students from
other campuses. She said she had
to reject nine students from other
universities who wanted to come
to East Carolina.
"This year I was able to accept
everyone who wanted to come
here lt was such a good feeling
not to turn anyone down she
said.
In addition to the campuses in
New Mexico, Puerto Rico and
Hawaii, ECU students will be at-
tending the University of Maine,
The University of Georgia, the State
University of New York (SUNY)�
Buffalo, the University of Wyo-
ming, Bowling Green State Uni-
versity, the University of Alabama,
the L niversitvof Minnesota, West
Chester I niversity in Pennsylva-
nia, alifomia State University and
Nort hern state L niversity in South
Dakota
1'here are still openings at
other schools for ECU students
who are interested in the program.
The 20 studentsattending ECU
will come trom the University ot
Massachusetts, Bowling Green

Researchers have found that a
high percentage of public high
school students in North Carolina
know a great deal about the risks
of contracting A1DSH1V.
Results of the first statistical
study of its kmd, conducted since
the 1987 General Assembly, man-
dated AIDSHIV education in
North Carolina's public school
shows:
� that 97.3 percent of students
in grades seven through 12 know
that the Human Immunodefi-
ciency Virus(HIV)can be acquired
bv sharing needles.
� that MfS.4 percent know that
HIV infection, the forerunner to
AIDS, can occur as a result of sex-
ual intercourse.
� that 94.7 percent feel that
AIDSHIV education should be
given in schools and that 77.2
percent of the respondents have
received such instruction.
Published by ECU research-
ers in the spring issue of the jour-
nal of the North Carolina Alliance
for Health, Physical Education,
Recreation and Dance, the study
also shows:
� that students who received
HIV instruction were more likely
to be willing to attend school with
a person infected with HIV.
� that students who received
such instruction were more confi-
dent both in their knowledge about
AIDSHIV and where to obtain
more information, and were more
likely to have discussed HIV with
family and friends.
Dr. Michael Felts of the ECU
department of health and human
performance, principal investiga-
tor, said "the findings, as a whole
show a relatively high level of
knowledge about those behaviors
which would put them at risk for
contracting HIV.
"This isn't surprising, given
the legislative requirement for
HIVAIDS education in North
Carolina,but it isencouraging that
we can say this with some confi-
dence Felts said
The research report, co-au-
thored by Felts with Drs. Patricia
Dunn, Rick Barnes and David
White of the health and human
performance department, and Dr.
Thomas Chenier of the ECU Bi-
ostatistics Research Program,
noted some inconsistencies about
how AIDS HI V is not transmitted
but reported overall "a relatively
sound knowledge" of the AIDS
HIV factors.
"Students were considerably
less knowledgeable about trans-
mission via non-risk circumstances
such as donating blood, being bit-
ten by mosquitos and using public
toilets the report said.
"These misconceptions may
negatively impact both the indi-
vidual who holds them and the
community at large the report
said. 'These findings rc-empha-
size the need to provide education
to students
The study was based on data
collected from a 35-item survey
conducted among more than
11,000 students between the ages
of 13 and 18. The research was
conducted under a contract with
the N.C. Department of Public
Instruction which was being as-
sisted by the national Centers for
Disease Control (CDC) in facilitat-
ing AIDSHIV education in North
Carolina public schools

Study shows condition of poor
county schools tends to worsen
RALEIGH, NC� The gap in
local school spending between
North Carolina's wealthy coun-
ties and its poor counties contin-
ues to widen, according to a study
released May 9 by the Public
School Forum.
Wake County leads the latest
spending report with $1,792 per
student average while students in
the state's poorest county get only
$330 each.
Since 1986i the difference in
loca school spending has widened
by $519 per student.
Highlights of this study
confirm our suspicion that some
Wind oi action may be needed to
correct this disparity said lohn
Human, president of the Public
School Forum which is co-spon-
soring the study along with the
North Carolina Rural Economic
Development Center
Nearlv half oi the school
children in 'orth Carolina live in
rural areas Dornan added It
the economic future of our state is
linked to the success of these chil
dren, then we must Jo a better job
providing them equal access to .i
good education
This is the first of several re-
ports to be developed as part of
the Forum's Rural School Initia-
tive which is looking at inequities
in North Carolina's public schools.
The study also will examine the
quality of education in North
Carolina and the impact of state
and federally mandated programs
upon local spending.
Entitled Actual Effort the
study compares actual local dol-
lar spending totals, for both cur-
rent school operations and capital
spending, in all 1(X) North Caro-
lina counties.
Not surprising is the fact that
the state's major urban counties,
also the wealthiest counties, lead
in school spending.
Wake surged to the top this
year, largely because of a major
capital building program.
Guilford Comnty leadsspend-
ing of current operations which is
a more relevant measure oi how
schools are impacted by local
spending since this category in-
cludes such things as additional
teachers, support staff, salary-
supplements, computers, text-
books and instructional supplies.
Unlike most states. North
Carolina provides the bulk of
funding for its public schools. Of
the nearly $4 billion FY 90-91
budget for public schools, 60.1
percent is funded by the state. 7.7
percent from the federal govern-
ment and 23 percent locally.
In general, the state pays
teacher salaries and other opera-
tional expense's while local gov-
ernments are expected to provide
the buildings. In recent years,
however, more and more of the
state's urban areas have realized
that the state level oi spending is
not adequate and have supple-
mented state funds with local
resources.
Local spending for current
operations range from a high of
$1,651 to a low of $226 per student.
"This large gap in operation
expenditures among counties is
especially troubling said Peter
Leousis, the Forum's Director of
Policy Research and the study's
author. "It is caused mostly by
differences in wealth, and to some
extent by tax policies
A positive findingof the study
is an increase in school construc-
tion, particularly among rural
schools.
Clay County, for example,
sparsely populated and remote in
the western mountains, leads
capital spending with an average
of $799 per student. As result of its
capital building program, Clay
County moved from 93rd th 15th
in total spending.
Other counties which have
make substantial gains are
Beaufort, Edgecombe, C.ranville
and Green.
"The growth in spending for
school construction has acceler-
ated during the past three years
and this is significant' Dornan
said "While much of that growth
stems from the 1987 School Con-
struction Act, it also seems to re-
flect a growing commitment by
the public to support school im-
provement
Spendnng in only 19 counties
exceeded the state average of $937
per student. In last year's School
Finance Study, also sponsored bv
the Forum, spending in 21 coun-
ties exceeded the state average.
According to Mr. Leousis, this
trend indicates that the rich school
systems are getting richer and the
gap between them and poorer
schools is becoming wider.

Business Index indicates
continued activity increase
Business activity in North
Carolina has increased 0.8 percent
in the first quarter of 1990,accord-
ing to the First Wachovia N.C.
Business Index. Over the past year
the index has risen 2.4 percent.
Two of the index's four com-
ponents improved during the
quarter. Non-agricultural employ-
ment was up 0.8 percent, and the
value of building permits, which
reflect construction plans, rose 2.4
percent. The average manufactur-
ing workweek decreased slightly
to 40.0 hours. New claims for
unemployment benefitsincreased
i8 percent.
Nationally, non-agricultural
employment was up 0.7 percent
for the quarter. Over the past year
non-agricultural employment has
grown 2.5 percent in North Caro-
lina and 2.3 percent in the nation.
North Carolina manufactur-
ing employment was steady dur-
ing the quarter. Employment was
reported in furniture, apparel,
textiles, electrical machinery and
food processing.
Non-manufacturing employ-
ment in the state increased 1.1
percent during the quarter. Higher
employment was reported in
wholesale and retail trade, gov-
ernment, services and construc-
tion.
North Carolina's seasonally
adjusted unemployment rate for
thequarter was 3.6 percent, up0.5
percentage points from the previ-
ousquarter. The national rate was
5.3 percent, unchanged from the
previous quarter.
The First Wachovia N .C. Busi-
ness Index measures the state's
economic activity quarterly. Us-
ing 1976 as a base of 100, it reflects
indicators of the state's economy.
Data are adjusted to smooth the
effectsof seasonal fluctuationsand
other statistical aberrations.

Retirement offered
to ROTC cadets
WASHINGTON � The Pentagon, looking ahead to a reduced need
for officers, is offering an early retirement oi sorts for 1,000 Army and
Air Force ROTC cadets, but few are taking the offer.
Only 320 Army and Air Force cadets have chosen and been cleared
for the release, although 60 more are being considered, said Pentagon
spokesman Maj. Doug Hart.
The plan frees cadets oi a service obligation in return for renounc-
ing anv claim to the officer's position they had sought.
The program, open through this month to seniors without scholar-
ships in Army and Air Force programs, was recently extended to
juniors because so few seniors had signed up. The Navy chose not to
offer the program because 90 percent of Navy and Marine cadets
receive scholarships.
The cutback, while small, hits students who made career plans
during the U.S. military buildup in the mid-1980s. ROTC programs
operate on more than 1,500 campuses and include 86,000 students,
including 73,500 in the affected Army and Air Force programs.
The release also warns cadets who remain that competition for
scholarships and commissions will get tougher and that more cutbacks
may follow.
"It was kind of scary because I realize the Army is in the process of
down-sizing said Leslie Randolph, a senior at the University of
Arkansas at Pine Bluff and a cadet sergeant first class. "It makes you
realize how serious it is She intends to stick it out.
Throughout the country, cadets are being warned that the cutbacks
mean stiffer competition for pnzed officers' commissions.
"You can expect to see SAT and ACT scores go up. Grade point
averages are going to have to be up there, whereas now, we have
minimum requirements said Col. Larry E. Carrigan, commander of
the Arizona State University Air Force ROTC. None of 59 juniors or
seniors opted to drop out of Arizona State's program.
Uppermost in cadets' minds, ROTC commanders at several univer-
sities said, is whether the Pentagon will impose cuts if there are not
enough voluntary withdrawals. Hart said no mandatory cuts are
planned.
Rutgers University junior Geoffrey Hogate, 22, said none oi his
classmates at the New Brunswick, N.J campus are considering getting
out of ROTC.
"I'm looking for a military career Hogate said. "There's not as
much job security as 1 had anticipa ted. But only the best are going to stay-
in. It will be very competitive, especially in the future after the full
cutbacks
Attention is
focused on
mental health
ASHEVILLE (AP) � The
mental health of America's aging
population is fast becoming an
issue for the 1990s, gerontologists
and health professionals meeting
at the University of North Caro-
lina at Asheville said.
"Mental health has always
been the weak sister to physical
health concerns among the eld-
erly, but the growth and preva-
lence of Alzheimer's disease is
forcing greater attention to men-
tal health in later life said Bill
Haas, a UNC-Asheville sociolo-
gist and organizer of the 9th an-
nual Western North Carolina
Gerontology Forum held Friday.
Theresa Vainer, a health pol-
icy analyst tor the American Asso-
ciation of Retired Persons, said
her organizations has also begun
paying more attention to mental
illness.
Last June, the AARP lobbied
Congress about the issue and the
group has begun developing new
policies in conjunction with the
American Psychological Associa-
tion, the American Psychiatric
Association and the National
Mental Health Association, Ms.
Vainer said.
Dr. Robert Greene, director of
the VVeslev Woods Geriatric Hos-
pital at Emory University, said the
public should be wary of new at-
tention being paid to mental dis-
eases by the news media and drug
companies.
"The drug companies are
desperate to find a pill that they
can give you to say, Take this and
it will improve your memory
he said.
Funding from drug manufac-
turers is driving much of the
nation's research into neurologi-
cal disease, Greene said. At least
20 new drugs are being tested for
alleviating symptoms of
Alzheimer's disease and other
neurological disease.
Doctors, meanwhile, are be-
coming more adept at distinguish-
ing neurological disease from head
trauma, depression and circula-
tory problems that can result in
similar symptoms, Greene said.
"Head trauma is the unsung
epidemic among elderlv patients
he said. 'Their risk of head trauma
is second only to teen-agers and
people in their 20s
Eugene Bianchi.authorof "On
Growing Older: A Personal Guide
to Life After 35 said elderly
Americans are reluctant to think
about the future.
Rutgers has 130 Army ROTC
students, 22 of whom are eligible
for voluntary withdrawal, Lt. Col.
Bronislaw Maca said.
"I do see some concern on the
part of freshmen and sophomores
about whether the guarantee of
becoming an officer is still there
Maca said. "I tell them that the
Army needs officers. If you're
really good, and really want it,
you'll have to try that much harder.
Washington State University
in Pullman, Wash actually saw
an increase in the number of fresh-
men enrolled in ROTC courses this
spring, said Major Wayne Price,
the school's ROTC commander.

N.C. excessive infant-mortality rate discussed in Chapel Hill
. . . . . ' i c tenj: c. iiMWVtn �- �� -A
CHAPEL HILL. N.C. (API
When a 34-year-old Chapel Hill
woman died last week due to
. omplicationsofherpregnancv.it
focused renewed attention on a
problem that is often overshad-
owed by North Carolina's exces-
sive infant-mortality rate.
Carol Boren Owens, a fund-
raiser for WUNC-FM, died May 3,
just oneday after learningshe was
pregnant. She had suffered an
ectopic pregnancy, one that takes
place outside of the uterus that
normally would nourish the grow
ing embryo.
Her embrvo was implanted in
the right fallopian tube iist where
it narrowed near the uterus As
the embryo grew, it ruptured the
tube, causing massive bleeding,
in an autopsy, Medical Examiner
l.vslc A Eaton r found more than
two quarts of blood in her abdo-
men.
"We assume mothers never
die, but they do said Marvin
Hage, assistant professor of ob-
stetrics and gynecologv at Duke
University. "We've concentrated
on infant mortality. We've forgot-
ten about maternal mortality �
and that's a problem
North Carolina has the
nation's worst infant mortality
rate. But many of the same things
that cause babies to die � such as
the mother's high blood pressure
or diabetes � can also kill the
mother, Hage told The News and
Observer of Raleigh.
In 1988, 12 North Carolina
women died because of preg-
nancy, a rate of about 12 per
100,000 live births. Only one of
them was killed by an ectopic
pregnancy. Most of theothersdied
later in pregnancy, of complica-
tions related to disease or from
problemsafterchildbirth. Nation-
ally, about seven women died per
100,000 live births in 1987.
There was a time when many
more women died during preg-
nancy. They still do in Third World
countries, such as Egypt, where
150 women die for every 100,000
live births, according to a study
Hage conducted.
Ectopic pregnancy is a rare
event, occurring in about 1.5 per-
cent of pregnancies. In the United
States, the ra te has been rising o ver
the last two decades and so en tists
aren't sure why.
It could be better reporting, or
it could be problems related to
events with roots in the sexual
revolution and the women's
movement. Some women are
waiting longer to have babies, and
some have had sexually transmit-
ted diseases, which can lead to
scarring of their fallopian tubes.
Women who delay childbirth until
after age 30 are more at risk of
dying during pregnancy, said
Hage.

topic pregnancy � vaginal bleed-
ing and abdominal pain � mimic
those of an early miscarriage,
making it hard to diagnose. A

Summer brings many changes
As if two long semesters of intense learn-
ing were not enough, thousands oi ECU stu-
dents flocked back to Greenville and into their
summer dwellings Monday, preparing for yet
another wonderful summer in the Emerald City.
After a short rest from a grueling spring
semester, the hooks were opened again Tues-
day as the first summer session officially started.
Many students, still dazed from final exams
that were taken just over two weeks ago, did not
even show up for the first dav of class.
Summer, traditionally, has been a time
oi year when the majontv oi college students
work to pay off debts that were incurred during
the previous school year But for others, sum-
mer has become a time that they can catch up on
lost credit hours, bring up grades, or just get
ahead so that graduation will come earlier than
expected.
For whatever reason, summer is here
and school has started
Many changes have transpired since the
end of the spring semester - changes that will
definitely have an effect on most of the students
enrolled for the summer sessions
First, the university, in an attempt to
trim excess spending, has decided to turn the
air conditioning off in as many campus build-
ings as possible every Friday at 11 30 a.m in
addition to a "compressed" work week for full-
time employees Since some classes are sched-
uled after 11:30a m. on Friday's, some students
mav have class moved from one building to
another.
This effort on behalf of the administra-
tion must be applauded The cuts could have
come from because cuts in other areas could
have had enacted However, those state em-
ployees and students that work on campus in
the afternoons and evenings will feel the effect
even more
The university has also started remodel-
ing some of the residence halls, and the work is
expected to be complete by August
Work on Mendenhall Student Center
has nearly reached completion, and the third
floor has a new appearance The cafeteria hours
have changed, and the snack shop has its doors
closed for the summer
The East Carolinian hasalsoexpeiienced
manv changes. Nearly every position from the
spring semester has changed hands Our in-
terim general manager, Joey Jenkins, looks to
follow in the footsteps oi David F ierring who is
currently working with USA TODAY Ihree
new editors and two new assistant editors
should enhance the editorial department.
1 lowever, with all of the changes, school
will be school. So make the best oi it, and
welcome back to ECU.
N.C. coast freed from oil drilling?
In the summer of '89, in the wake of heated
suspicions toward George Bush's role in Iran-Con-
tra, we Americans sat back in awe as the President
pleaded emphatically to have American flags de-
clared sacred. Newspaper editorials across the coun-
try questioned his judgment on "the flag thing" and
his staunch refusal to comment on the hanging of
three Chinese dissident-survivors of the Tiannen-
men massacre. Many commentators remarked that
"the flag thing" may well have been a diversion,
something to distract the American people.
The silence was just as un-golden when Bush
refrained for two long weeks from making any
comment on the Alaskan oil spill. Perhaps his Texas
oil background precluded his responding forcibly to
such a catastrophe�even when this involved the
killing of, among many other creatures, hundreds of
bald eagles, long regarded in this country as living
symbols of "freedom and justice for all " With China
and Alaska,Bush wasclearly placingeconomicgains
over humanitarian and ecological concerns. And it is
the desecration of life, not of mere symbols, with
which we should be concerned.
In the very near future, Bush will be forced to
make some big decisions regardingoffshoreoil drill-
ing in the U.S. Since the Nixon era, our government
hascatered strongly to the wishesof Big Oil. Thus far
Bush has failed to press for the conservation meas-
ures and energy taxes that would ease our depend-
ence on overseas oil. Instead, his administration
continues to sanction the exploitation of the Alaskan
wilderness, one of the last remaining wildernesses
on the North American continent. If Mobil gets its
way off our coast, the pristine Outer Banks will be at
risk as well. It isa bad bargain in both cases, however,
for even by the most optimistic estimates, the areas
will never produce enough gas or oil to make it
worth the environmental risks.
Part of the problem, obviously, is misplaced
government priorities. Though Bush fancies himself
the "environmental President his record suggests a
bias toward development rather than conservation.
For instance, during the Reagan era, Bush lobbied to
block the EPA's phase-out of leaded gasoline, to aid
General Motors in its successful effort to kill a meas-
ure designed to limit air pollution, and to repeal
standards on noise pollution in the workplace.
But thanks to efforts by Rep Walter B. Jones, Sr.
(D), to block Mobil Oil Corp from drilling off the
coast near Cape Hatteras, we may be able to keep the
oil mongers at bay, so to speak, for a while longer.
Jones' recent request to the House Appropriations
Committee is along the same lines as his Outer banks
Protection Act of last January, which would prohibit
the Secretary of the Interior from issuing any new
leases or granting approval to any further drilling
until October 1,1991. His new bill would prohibit all
government activities favoring offshore drilling in
North Carolina. Jones evidently realizes that one
must not only watch the oil companies, but the
government as well.

Editorial Columnist
Revolution seems to be the
rage these days The Berlin Wall
has fallen, the USSR has legiti-
mized private property, and just
about every communist Coventry
on the map is looking to revamp
its system. Lest you think that
revolutions are onlv an overseas
phenomenon, a no less dramatic
one is taking place right here in
this country. I'm referring to the
shift in agricultural policv now
being considered bv the U.S. gov-
ernment, a shift crystallized bv
the recently introduced Organic
Foods Production Act of 1990 (S.
21(X). This A it is revolutionary in
scope and purpose Some agrono-
mists are calling it the most im-
portant piece of environmental
legislation since the Wilderness
Act of P'M. Let me explain.
Our present agricultural sys-
tem is in crisis Sure, we still pro-
duce aplenty. Foday's farmers
make up less than two percent of
the population yet still produce
enough to teed the nation and
provide more than s:s percent of
the world's surplus as well intact,
supplying an abundance of food
is this country's
biggest business
more money is
spent each dav on
ii'od than on any
other commodity
The so-called
'Green Revolu-
tion" which began
in the 1960s her-
alded a new era in
mass food productivity and has
made ours the most productive
ioiMi system worldwide.
But the agricultural progress
that made the Green Revolution
possible has spelled trouble tor
the environment, from wide-
spread topsoil erosion to releases
of hazardous chemicals into our
air. food, and water supply Since
World War 11, pesticides and syn-
thetic fertilizers have been added
m increasing quantities to Ameri-
can farmlands These chemicals
have had adverse effects on the
soils upon which all plant life
depend. Manv of these chemicals
tend to leach essential elements
from the soil, causing reduced
fertility and increasing the need
tor more chemical fertilizers
This declining fertility ex-
plains, in part, whv large U-S.
farmshavean extremely poor per-
acre yield in fotni crops despite
heavy fertilizer use. According to
the (ohil 2000 Report, there has
been "a continued diminishing of
marginal return to increases in
fertilizer use The decline in soil
fertility for manv U.S. farms has
reduced the land's capacity to
produce. And when a plant is not
supplied with the essential nutri-
ents, it becomes more vulnerable
to climate change and to infesta-
tion by certain "pests" (harmful
microbesand insects). Ultimately,
the poor nutritive value of food
crops causes poor health in the
animals and humans who con-
sume them.
Chemical residues on plant
and animal foods pose a serious
risk to public health. In 1987, the
National Academy of Sciences'
Board on Agricultureclaimed that
over 90 percent of pesticides used
in the U.S. had not been adequately
tested for their health effects. The
report said that 90 percent of fun-
gicides, 60 percent of herbicides,
and 30 percent of insecticides used
in the U.S. may pose a cancer risk
to people who eat food treated
with them. In addition, many of
these chemicals, as well as fertiliz-
ers, contain various toxic metals
which may promote disorders ot
the immune and nervous systems.
There is good reason to suspect a
link between our increasingly
chemicalized food supply and the
rising cancer rates of the past four
decades.
In addition, our entire food
system�including production,
transportation, processing, and
marketting�consumes more en-
ergy, more land, and more steel
than any other sec tor of the econ-
omy. The vast amounts oi oil and
gas used to grow, process, and
transport our food are promoting
problems of global proportion,
including the greenhouse effect,
acid rain, ocean pollution, and
destruction of the ozone laver This
food system is clearly among the
biggest burdens to the environ-
ment and human health
The only acceptable solution
to this dilemma is to put an end to
chemical farming In 189. the

�sciences urged ust that a radical
shift in U.S. farm policv away from
chemical farming toward the
non-chemical "sustainable ap-
proach of organic farming. Or-
ganic farmers avoid synthetic fer-
tilizers, pesticides, growth regu-
lators, and livestock feed addi-
tives, and instead use crop rota-
tions, crop residues, legumes,
manures (plant and animal-
based), minimal cultivation, min-
eral supplements and biological
pest control to maintain high pro-
ductivity and control weeds, in-
sects, and other pests.
Organic farming seeks to pro-
duce high-qualitv food and to
maintain soil fertility tor future
generations. In a 1984 report bv
Firman Bear of Rutgers Univer-
sity, organically grown vegetables
were found to be significantly
higher in all essential trace ele-
ments compared to chemically
farmed produce. Manv oi these"
elements not onlv promote soil
fertility, but also serve key roles in
maintaining physical and mental
health.
In 1980, the U.S. Department
of Agriculture published a land-
mark review of scientific and eco-
nomic studies of organic farming,
"Reportand Recommendations on
Organic Farming" This 94-page
report concluded that the produc-
tivity and profitabilitvof medium-
and large-sealeorganic farmscom-
pared favorably to conventional
farms. Production of certain crops
was superior for organic farms;
and during dry seasons, organic
farms fared better than conven-
tional farms for all food crops.
Organic farms were slightly more
labor-intensive (more human
work than machine work in-
volved), which means more jobs
in rural areas.

Computer lab problems revisited
To the editor:
I was not surprised by the
letter Katrina Patterson wroteyou
("Computer lab fails to serve
April 17). The problems she en-
countered in the computer labs
are not unique to her. Lots of stu-
dents have trouble getting their
projects done on computers. These
problems can be compounded by
the fact that there are some lab
assistants who really don't know
what they are doing and can give
you bad information.
As a graduate student here at
ECU, I have encountered lots of
people just like Katrina in the
compu ter labs. They areof ten very
frustrated and fed up with trying
to get their projects done on com-
puters. The lab assistants are also
very overworked and, unfortu-
nately, not always as knowledge-
able as we would hope, which
makes end-users problems even
worse.
Despite these problems, the
ability to use computers as an aid
to school work and as an instruc-
tional medium isimperahve. Prob-
lems will be encountered in everv
aspect of school, but that does not
mean you should throw your
hands up in despair when you
encounter them. The ability to
understand and use computers is
no longer just an advantage in
school and work, it is becoming a
necessity. Educators need to be
able to teach these skills to stu-
dents.
I called Katrina and found out
that the reason she was unable to
get her project done on the com
puter was because no one told her
where she could find the software
(Microsoft Windows) to do her
project. 1 told her where shecouW
run this program if she needed to
in the future.
The ability to understand and
use computers is fast becoming
necessity to keep on top of the
business and education world lb
people who think they can com
pete in education and business
without these skills, I say vou are
making a horrible mistake

� � � m lhal has become a
g program m the state
department. He wrote East Caro-
lina with ideas of teaching geol-
ogy and beginning a department.
The administration liked his ideas
and Brown said that he was in-
vited tor further discussions.
In lhh he was hired to estab-
lish the geology department. He
established curricula, set up
courses ot study and hired 5 fac-
ulty members. In the Fall of 1967,
the same year the college became
a university, last Carolina's geol-
ogy department opened its doors.
1 his department is a leading
program in the state. Today, the
department has a faculty of 8 and
20 graduate students. Authoriza-
tion to offer a masters program
came in 1970. Only Chapel Hill ot-
ters a doctoral program in geol-
ogy.
Pr. Brown has traveled exten-
sively and has specimens from
many areas Among his specimens
of gems minerals and rocks is a
ruin and oisite stone from Af-
rica. 1 lehas isited Russia and the
Hawaiian Islands and has at-
tended the Deposaoonai Systems
Conference at the University of
Southern California. Other visits
include Mt. Saint Helens. Since its
eruption, he noted the recovery in
its surrounding areas of young
seedling and flowering beginning
to grow
Brown said that he attended a
conference concerning the direc-
tion ot earth science education that
addressed what pre-collegeearth
science curriculum should in-
clude
In his article in Ctvtitnes. Feb-
ruary I WO, titled "Earth Science
Education he related that re-
forms are starting to confront the
crisis in education. In this article,
he details his attendance at the
Planned Red Lodge Conference at
V ellowstone Bighorn Research
Association Field Camp near Red
1 odge, Montana where 28 scien-
tist and educators dedicated 2
weeks to developing guidelines
tor a complete K-12 curriculum.
Pr. Brown is a proponent of
the concept "Do not teach more
and more, but rather, less and
better" as was published in "Sci-
ence tor all Americans a 3-year
effort bv the American Associa-
tion tor the Advancement of Sci-
ence
The past 3 summers Brown
conducted three-week field geol-
ogy institutes for fifteen earth sci-
ence teachers. Since 1985, these
workshops have covered the
coastal plains, oceans, rivers and
sediments. This summer the insti-
tutes will cover the Piedmont, Blue
Ridge, Appalachian, and cumber-
land plateau areas of North Caro-
lina and Virginia and will be for
middle and high school teachers.
In reflecting over the changes
at ECU, and his role in these
changes, Brown said he is proud-
est of the developing of the geol-
ogy department and recounts that
it was exciting.
Dr. Brown has been married
tor 40 years. He and his wife,
Barbara, have two children, Char-
les Q. Brown, Jr. and Elizabeth
Leigh Brown.
Dr. Brown says to be a scien-
tist, one must have a love of na-
ture, and natural things, be in-
quisitive, and know chemistry,
biology, and other sciences as well
as have a strong understanding of
math. Advanced degrees require
a field of specialization with more
emphasis on science and math,
including geo-chemistry and
chemistry.

Last Child is a Fayetteviiie-based heavy metal band that will be on the road throughout the summer.
Members Robbie Hall. Tom Pardue. Danny Mayer. Eric Page and Dave Keck will play at AJ"s Lounge in

Last Child brings classic rock
origins back to southern clubs
By Deanna Nevgloski
Assistant Features ditor
Some hard and heavy music
has been coming out of Fayettev-
llle these days. A hard-rockin'
quintet called Last Child is no
exception.
Bringing harmony-laden,
melodic hard rock with great
grooves and plenty of noise. Last
Child proves to be a major con-
tender in the area.
Together for only three
months the band features Danny
Mayer on vocals, Tom Rardueand
Eric Page on guitars. Dave keck
onbassand Robbie Hall on drums.
It was Mayer, an upstate New
York native, and Pardue who first
got together to form Last Child
Mayer, who was wallowing in
Rochester, decided to call a few
agencies.
An agency finally put him in
touch with Manager Don lames,
and the vocalist was invited to
join Quiet Thunder in Fayettev-
llle. After the act disbanded, Mayer
called Pardue, former guitarist for
Quiet Thunder.
The duo soon recruited Page
and Keck from Gibraltar, a popu-
lar metal outfit that paved the way
for cither area bands before their
break up. Hall completed the line
up, and Last Child was born.
With 40 cover songs learned
in two weeks, Last Child took their
tight metal act to the road, touring
extensively the Carolinas, Ala-
bama, Georgia, Virginia and Flor-
ida.
However, outspoken vocalist
Mayer said that what he terms
copv rock is not in the group's
future plans. Eventually, they
would like to fill their showcases
with original material.
Pardue elaborated: "While
we're on the road we will work on
originals. As far as doing covers,
we have to do them to keep our-
selves working, and to keep the
motivation going
Last Child performs covers
from such bands as Aerosmith,
Metallica, Iron Maiden, Skid Row
steady groove of the Last Child
rhvthm section. Keck, who has
been playing bass tor four years,
is not only a rocker by nature
A fusion player as well. Keck
has spent a lot of time in music
theory classes in order to master
his instrument. The four-stringer
writes hisown fusion-type music
and would onedav like to put it to
vinyl.
"When I'm at home I listen to
jazz stuff, but when I'm out 1 like
I'esla and more. However, Pardue to play rock-n-roll because it's a
has been working on original physical thing, you know
material and has written music for
at least 10 songs.
Lyrically, Last Child does not
want to be a band that writes songs
based on sex, drugs and alcohol.
"1 don't like writing musk
without having some kind of
meaning behind it Pardue said.
keck stresses, "We're not writing
music for musicians, we're writing
music for the people
With influences ranging from
Aerosmith to Led Zeppelin to King
Diamond, the members of Last
Child are well crafted in their in-
struments.
Mayer, who hasbeen singing
tor seven years, has the perfect
chords forbdtingoutbluesy,hard-
edged rockers in the vain of
Badlands Ray Gillen and
Whitesnake's David Coverdale.
Pardue, a guitar player who
creates a distorted, but melodic
sound adds much creativity to the
polished and smooth playing of
Page's axe work. This double-axe
assault team looks to classic six-
stringers for their musical roots.
Keck and Hall supply the
Hall, a big basher with a great
voice (no one can do Kiss' "Strut-
ter" better) has been drumming
for the past four years. A player
who is also well skilled on other
instruments. Hall is the back beat
of the Last Child sound.
Last Child's future plans in-
clude making a demo of originals
to send to the major record com-
panies.
Thev are making their way
around North Carolina and
should be coming to the Attic
soon.
The Last Child stage show
incorporates solid, high energy
rock-n-roll with a lot of aggres-
sion. Heavy chords, steady
grooves and bluesy vocals with a
commercial sound can be heard
at a performance.
You can catch Last Child in
Jacksonville, this week where they
will be playing at Aj's Lounge
tonight through Saturday.

success
NEW YORK (AP) � Project-
ing a power image goes far be-
yond the cosmetics of hairstyle,
makeup and wardrobe, accord-
ing to Dr. Gilda Carle.
"They provide the finishing
touch, but power should stem
from within she told a recent
workshop for members of the
National Association for Female
Executives.
Carle, president of Inter
ChangeCommunications, ad vises
and coaches politicians, academic
leaders and executives on how to
communicate effectively.
Carle has a doctorate in or-
ganizational and administrative
studies from New York Univer-
sity. She said projecting a power
image involves verbal and non-
verbal techniques. "1 show people
how to use body language, voice,
words and appearance to create a
powerful impression. The strong-
est impact you can make on your
audience is through your use of
facial and body expressions, espe-
cially with vour eyes. Maintain-
ing eve contact is key to establish-
ing rapport and getting your lis-
teners' attention
A sincere smile and relaxed
vet well-poised posture are also
essential, she said.
What to wear? For men it's a
Mueorgrey pin-stripe suit, a white
or pastel shirt and a tasteful tie.
For women, it's not so easy. "You
must find what works best for you,
what you're comfortable with
Carle says. "Each person's power
image is unique
There are, however some
guidelines: � �
� Safe power colors are navy
or shades of it. When wearing a
conservative blue suit, add piz-
zazz with a blouse in a bolder
color.
� Too much jewelry is a no-
no. If what you're wearing gets in
the wav of what you're trying to
communicate, you're diminishing
your power image.
� You can wear red and black,
but keep in mind that red can be
overpowering. It's best to wear it
if you're already accepted bv vour
audience, or if you're giving a
kevnote speech where you want
to stand out. Black can be stark, so
use a pale blouse or dynamic ac-
cessories to soften the effect
� Patterns and pnntscan work
provided they're not too busy.
Nothing should distract from vour
message.
� Women starting out in busi-
ness should wear suits to com-
mand respect. However, execu-
tive women or decision-makers
can safely wear dresses to com-
plement their power image. As
for pants, thev take away from
vour femininity, which a power-
ful woman can be proud to prot-
ect.
An Ideal View
Passing the toughest college test parents
By Caroline Cusick
Features Editor
As we have returned toclasses
for this summer session, 1 have
another ideal view to present. I
am tempted to address the usual
back to classes subject. However, I
intend to address a subject that
rests heavy on my heart.
Attending school this summer
will allow me to graduate a se-
mester early and will allow me to
remain geographically close to the
person closest to my heart. Yet
there is a great sacrifice made to
remain home in Greenville.
Choosing to attend summer
school draws me away from my
family. I realize they need my sup-
port and help this summer.
Being a semi-independent,
young adult, 1 often forget that my
parents need me. I have needed
them so much while growing up
that the severing of dependance is
painful for me as well as for them.
I can assume how they feel by
piecing together the things they
say. But 1 can only see clearly my
side of the fence.
Unfortunately, I see an abun-
da nee of misunderstanding, a lack
of communication and my lack of
knowledge of the world, its sys-
tems, superstitions and traditions.
Moving every 18 months, my
childhood lacked the reinforce-
ment and passing on of traditions
that many people see and estab-
lish young. I do not blame this on
myself. 1 blame it even less on my
parents.
My mother taught me to read,
tie my shoes, walk, talk, eat, dress
myself and pray. She explained
where babies come from. She
showed me how to balancea check
book. She helped me study math,
spelling and history. She taught
me how to pick fruit at the grocery
store. Almost everything of value
I know is a direct result of her
never-ending patience and long-
suffering love.
1 realize this sounds sappy.
But sap or no, my mom is one of
my favorite people, and is just
about thebest friend I have on this
earth. She writes and calls, prays
for me, buys me clothes, cooks for
me and supports me, even when
she thinks I'm acting on impulse
or without thinking clearly.
My father has forever been a
source of encouragement. A man
oozing wisdom, I have often
brought him broken toys or
bruised emotions for healing.
Especially since moving away, I
havefound myself asking himfirst
when 1 have been in need of ad
viceon worldly or spiritual issues.
1 admire him beyond expla-
nation and have chosen a boy-
friend with many of his qualities
and with a similar heart. That, I
believe, is a great compliment to
his character and I hope he re-
ceives well.
Though I love them deeply
and appreciate all they do, saying
thanksrarely gets the point across,
l'mexditedaboutgrowingup. And
1 love my independence. I realize
I've been blessed to have parents
who are my friends.
I tend to believe a lot of col-
lege students expenence this, or
something similar. We love our
parents, but we want to "be our-
selves " (whatever that means).
What can I do? 1 can write and
call. 1 can try to visit more (not
easy when they live more than 950
miles away). And f oanlove them
and pray they see the depth of
that love.
After all the first command
God gave witha promiseattached
is to "Honor your father and
mother, so tha t you may live long
in me land the Lord your God is
giving you (Exodu 20.12).

Roseboro,
Smith race
to finishes
Sports Information
ECU'S women's track team
finished the 1990 outdoor season
at the Penn Relays April 26-28 with
two Lady Pirates advancing to the
finals of the 100 meter dash.
In the event, Vanessa Smith
and Danita Roseboro finished
sixth and seventh respectively in
the finals. Smith qualified with an
11.86 in a preliminary heat and
matched the time in the finals.
Roseboro turned in a 12.03 in the
preliminaries and an 11 96 in the
finals.
In other events, the 4 x 200
meter relay team finished fourth
in the itspreliminaryheat in 139.57
and finished 13th of 18 teams
competing.
The 4 x 100 meter relay team,
looking to qualify for the NCAA
outdoor championships, missed
the cut for the finals with a 47.03 in
its preliminary heat.
During the season, Smith had
theColonial Athletic Association's
best time in the 100 meters and 200
meters with an 11.75 and 24.3,
respectively. Bosebore had the
( A A s second best time in the two
events with an 11.9 and 24.68.
Smith won the CAA 200 meter
title with a 24.39 at theCA A Cham-
pionships. Also taking titles at the
first-year event were Ann Marie
Welch in the 10,000 meters, and
Chandra Cooper in the triple jump
and the 4 x 100 relay team.
Despite a promising year,
none of the Lady Pirate tracksters
turned in qualifying times for the
NCAA Smith came the closest
with an unofficial 10.9 in the 100
meters at UNC-Wilmington in
April. Because of problems with
the automatic timing system,
Smith's time was not clocked with
a wind-guage and therefore was
not accepted as a school record or
NCAA qualifying time.

Sports Hditor
Someone once said that "the
blues ain't nothin but a good man
feel in bad
In Theodore "Blue" Edwards'
case though, it's a case of a good
man feeling, well, pretty lazzy.
Edwards returned to the
Emerald City recently after his
rookie season with the MBA's Utah
jazz to visit familv and friends,
and to comtemplate returning to
the classroom for the summer to
finish up his degree.
"I'm debating whether to
come back and take a few classes
during the summer hesaid while
out on the mall Monday afternoon
after a conversation with former
Pirate teammate Gus Hill.
"But after a season in the NBA,
it might be tough to sit still in a
classroom he continued. "But I
think that I'm going to try and
squeeze some in. Basically, I'm
just here to visit my family and
friends and to take a break after a
long season
Edwards was the first-round
draft pick by the Utah Jazz last
year, the first player from ECU to
be picked in the opening round.
For the Snow Hill native, making
the transition from college to the
courts of the NBA was not par-
ticularly difficult.
"The competition is a lot
tougher in the NBA, but it's still
the same game � basketball he
said. "I really didn't put that much
pressureonmyself.becausel knew
that I was capable of making the
adjustment to the pro's So there
really wasn't that much pressure
at all
Edwards also said that he was
a little surprised to find that the
gameat the professional level was
not as hard as he thought it would
be.
"I thought that it would be a
lot harder than it turned out to
be he commented. "What you
get bv watching the game and lis-
tening to the veteran players, it
can be a little intimidating. But I
fell like I was prepared, and that
made the transition from college a
lot easier
One might expect a player
from a small community to be-
comea littlehardened by the pres-
sures on and off the court in the
NBA, but that's not the case with
Edwards. He was thoughtful and
talkative, constantly being side-
tracked by blowing horns, yells,
waves, greetings from friendsand
fans. But he took time to answer
every call, return every wave, a
lazy smile spread across his fea-
tures. He fielded questions from
passer-bys, all with the same easy
grace that he exhibits on the court.
Like most successful people,
Edwards is confident in his ability
to improve in his field.
"Each player pretty much
knows what he can do hesaid. "I
feel like I've really just scratched
the surface I knew that if 1 could
get some playing time in the pro's,
I would show what I could do
And he was very effective at
showing what he could do, as his
selection to the NBA second-team
all-rookie squad proves. This,
Edwards believes, will broaden
his role with the Jazz next season
"Talking to the Utah person-
nel in conference, they said that
thev really didn't have a feel for
what 1 could do last season, be-
cause thev onlv saw me play a
couple of times over the summer
before the season started he said.
"Now thev know what 1 can
do, and I think that mv role with
the team win ne increased. But I
don't think that they're going to
do anything to upset the winning
chemistry of the team, either. I just
want to go out thereand play. One
thing that 1 feel is to my advantage
is my ability to interchange at the
guard and toward positions. I've
alwavs palved foward, so that'
where I'm most comfortable. But 1
think that I add an extra dimen-
sion at guard because I think I run
the floor well, and help out in the
transition and running game
Although the game is the
same, there were some adjust-
ments that Edwards had to make
to fill his role on the squad.
"The game is a lot faster in the
NBA than it is in college. You've
got to deal with the 24-second shot
clock, and you're also playing
against better athletes. You have
to act and react a lot quicker be-
cause you are playing against great
players and great athletes
Edwards had to prepare him-
self mentally for playing against
some of the greats of the game,
players that heat one time watched
run the court on the inside of his
television, but was now facing
squaring off against in person.
All along, I watched these
guys playing, watching their
moves and learning from them
he said. "When I stepped on the
court with players like (the L.A.
Lakers') Magic Johnson and (the
Chicagp Bulls') Michael Jordan, 1

didn't think about who they were.
I had to think about them as just
other players that I had to play
against. I knew that I could play
with them
Basketball is a business, but
the seriousness of the business side
has to be offset with a little fun.
According to Edwards, all work
and no play makes for a boring
time in the NBA.
"You're out there to have fun,
but you know that you have a job
to do out there, too he said. "But
when you take all the fun out of it
and look at it just as a job, then it
gets boring
He added that many of the
players have found a good equi-
librium between work and play
on the court.
"(Philidelphia 76er) Rick
Mahorn plays like a kid, he has a
good time out on the court
Edwardslaughed. "1 le may knock
you down, but he's right there to
help von back up But if you come
back in the middle, he'll knock
you down again 1 le knows that
it's a job, t(H. ("her) Charles Bar-
klev is the same Ihev play to the
image that the media had painted
for them. But off the court,
Barklev's really cool, one of the
coolest people I know He's really
good with the kids, too. "
Edwards spent the season in
Utah and on the road mostly by
himself. Although his family was
Diffusers reduce Indy-car speeds
Dirt users are two-inch metal strips attached to all
pre-1990 chassis in the race (1990 chassis already
have the diff user incorporated into their design).
The diff user reduces the amount of air that is
being forced under the car, thus creating less
downforce and keeping speeds tower.
back here in North Carolina, he
knew that he had their support
wherever he was playing.
"My family has been here, and
they watch all they can he said.
"I know that anytime that I asked,
they would come to Utah to watch
me, or anywhere else that I was
playing
Although, he said with a
laugh, he's not sure that his mother
would show up for a road game.
"My mom says that she gets
too involved when she watches a
game on T.V he said. "She says
that she would rather listen to the
game on the radio or watch the
highlights on the news. I don't
think that she'd make it through a
live game
But Edwards has made it
through the "live" games, coming
away with experience that he
hopes will allow him to become a
better player next year. One game
in particular stands out in Blue's
mind as a growth-enhancing ex-
perience.
"I remember one game, we
were playing Chicago in Utah
he recalled. "Deianey Rudd and
Eric (ohnson, some teammates of
mine, and I were talking about
who was going to have to guard
lordan. We talked and joked about
the things he was going to try to
do, about his moves. I had to
guard him the last seven minutes
of the game. At that point he had
Crown
34 points, and he finished the game
with 40. The only shot he hit on me
was a reverse lay-up.
"Then, with 20 seconds left on
the clock, I had him the whole
time. He tried to penetrate on me,
but he couldn't get by. He went
up, but I got a hand up and he
ended up throwing the ball away.
We came back and won the game

on a last-second shot. That gave
me a lot of confidence. It made me
feel like if I could cover him, I
could cover anyone
As he stands out on the quiet,
grassy mall, he is many miles and
weeks away from the bedlam and
excitement of professional basket
ball. But Edwards is just as com-
fortable in one as he is the other

The Patriots rallied in the
bottom of the ninth, with Tippers
leading off with a home run. The
Pirate defense struggled to two
outs, but seemed unable to record
the third and final out. Suttle, Burr,
Thomas and Adamsall scored later
in the inning for C.MU, putting a
sizeable dent in a once seemingly
insurmountable Pirate lead.
Jonathan lenkins came in to
replace Tom Move, who teurned
in an excellent performance, for
the final out, giving the Pirates a
12-7 victory and the champion-
ship.
Calvin Brown was named the
tournament MVP, after batting
.474 with 8 RBI's.
"This is mv last year with the
Pirates, and this is a real honor
Brown said oi the award. "But it's
the whole team who should get
this. We all just went out and did
what we had to do to win the
game
The Pirates scored 51 mns in
four games in the tournament,
setting a new CAA record.
The Pirates will find out
Monday where they will be play-
ing for the regional tournament.
Smith gets
'cream of
the crop'
By Stan Sutton
Gannett News Service
A year ago Indiana
University's basketball recruiting
class was being called one of the
best of all time.
Get 7-foot Eric Montross,
Hoosier fans said, and make room
for another NCAA championship
trophy. However, presently meas-
urements within the trophy case
are being taken at the University
of North Carolina.
Montross, whom Indiana fans
had hoped would become the
exclamation point to Indiana's
great recruiting class of 1989, will
play for the Tar Heels. Now it's
North Carolina's incoming fresh-
men who are being called the best
ever.
Coach Oean Smith's power of
persuasion has worked overtime
since last summer. Besides Mon-
tross, he brought in three other
McDonald's All-Americans: 6-10
Clifford Rozier of Bradenton, Fla
6-6 Brian Reese of the Bronx, N.Y
and 6-3 Derrick Phelps of Middle
Village, NY. The final member of
the class is 6-7 Patrick Sullivan of
Bogota, N.J another player loved
by most scouts.
"In the modern era this is the
best class said Bob Gibbons, a
North Carolina graduate who pro-
fessionally rates players.
