nurse in the neonatal unit, there
were more than 300children and

ECU now has a new doctoral
degree program in educational
leadership for public school ad-
ministrators and others in senior
level administrative positions in
the public schools.
This makes ECU the fourth
school out of the 16 constituent
universities in the University ol
North Carolina system to offer a
doctoral degree not in the medical
or science fields. Currently only
UNC-Chapel Hill, NC State and
UNC-Greensboro offer doctoral

Eagle was pleased with his
work that he entered in the Rocky
Mount Art Gallery, "I entered these
shows to get exposure, hoping that
gallery owners and people that
buy art will recommend my work
to others he said.
Eagle began taking art lessons
at age five. He said he has had an
interest in art all of his life. His
mother enrolled him in an art class
at a voung age because he was
always drawing.
Eagle said that his work was
rejected manv times when he first
started entering shows, but that
eventually it became accepted and
all the hard work paid off. He
explained that art work could be
rejected at one show and win first
place at another. "The more shows
you enter, the better galleries you
get in Eagle said.
Ray Elmore, one oi the show's
judges and also a professor at ECU,
said that one could view an art
show much like a dog show � all
of the entries are good, it is just a
matter of what stands out and
appeals to the eye.
Elmore said that Eagle's work
stood out. "It was the strongest
piece there he said. "Scott had

Hoffman, a member of the ECU medical faculty since 1977, was
invited to serve on the committee by Dr. Louis H. Sullivan, secretary of
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Dosimetry program graduates two
Two students have graduated from the medical dosimetry pro-
gram offered through the ECU School of Medicine.
Bryan W. McRoy and Suresh K. Ramhendar completed the nine-
month certificate program, which prepares individuals for work in this
field associated with radiation oncology.
McRoy, from Evansville, Ind received his radiation therapy tech-
nology training at the Deaconess Hospital in Evansville. Ramhendar,
from Washington, DC, trained at Howard University in thatcity. Both
will take certification boards in June.
The medical dostmetrist is m integral member of the radiation
oncology team in its management of patients with cancer. The dosimet-
rist is responsible for planning the radiation treatment, calculation and
measuring the appropriate radiation dose, and assuring the quality of
the treatment.
The medical dosimetry program, one of only eight in the country,
is conducted by the ECU Department of Radiation Oncology in con-
junction with the ECU Division of Continuing Education.

Saturday at the 1989-90 annual meeting of the association in Greens-
boro. She succeeds Donald VV. Sink of Boone.
She became interested in the work of the Lung Association as a
volunteer stuffing envelopes with Christmas Seals and has been active
for many years on the state and regional level. Fulghum has served in
various volunteer capacities.
Fulghum said she plans to focus on educational and support
programs for children with respiratory disease and also concentrate on
educating people about the services provided by the Lung Association.
She said she would strive for more volunteer involvement.
Student's research draws attention
A student at the ECU School of Medicine whose research has drawn
the attention of scientists at the National Institutes of Health has been
selected to participate in the agency's scholars program.
Laura Harris is among 36 students from medical schools nation-
wide selected to be a member of the Class of 1990-91 in the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute-National Institutes in an N1H laboratory of
her choice as well as completing medical education requirements.
Harris, formerly of Goldsboro and a second-year medical student
at ECU, has been studying fatty particles in the blood known as low-
density lipoproteins. Through her research, she has been able to distin-
guishcharacteristicsof the fat particles that may contribute to increased
risk of heart disease.
More specifically, she has focused on LDLs in men with a body
shape known as the "pot belly She has shown that LDLs in men who
have pot bellies differ significantly from the ones in men who do not.
Her research previously received recognition from the National
Student Research Forum, the country's foremost competition for stu-
dent biomedical research projects.

Where's the bone? That is the
question that many women are
asking their doctors. Osteoporo-
sis strikes as many as 24 million
Americans each year, particularly
No one ever out grows the
need forcalciumintheirdiet. From
the time they are very young, chil-
dren are taught the importance of
drinking milk because it gives
strong, healthy bones and teeth.
Yet, calcium deficiency affects at
least 87 percent of teen-age girls
today. These teen-age girls are at a
risk to bone mineral loss later in
life which leads to osteoporosis.
Ninty-nine percent of the cal-
cium in the body is found in the
bones and teeth. The other one
percent circulates in the blood
helping the body's organs. When
the body does not get enough cal-
cium, it starts taking the calcium
from the bones which then makes
them brittle and causes them to
become weak.
This weakening of the bones
causes osteoporosis which causes
low back pain, a hunched back,
loss of height, increased risk of
fractures to the bones and a loss of
bone that supports the teeth.
A survey by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture found that 68
percent of A mertcans d id not meet
the recommended dietary allow-
ances for calcium. The latest RDA
for adults is 800 milligrams of
calcium per day.
Someexperts suggest between
1,000 milligrams and 1,500 milli-
grams per day to help reduce the
risk of osteoporosis. Calcium can-
not be produced by the body
One's diet must supply the cal-
cium it needs for a healthy body
Calcium can be obtained in
foods such as milk, yogurt, cheese,
ice cream, seafood, beans, broc-
coli, collards, spinach, spaghetti,
almonds and tofu. By consuming
calcium-rich foods throughout

bone disorders is reduced. Re-

Senate candidates Gantt
and Easley blast Helms for
opposing AIDS measures
Democratic U.S. Senate can-
didates Harvey Gantt and Mike
Easley targeted Sen. Jesse Helms
rather than each other in campaign
appearances Saturday, with Gantt
blasting the Republican for op-
posingan A IDS measure last week.
"1 thought he embarrassed the
peopieof North Carolina by show-
ing no compassion for the AIDS
victims in our society, for show-
ing a lack of understanding as to
what in fact has caused that prob-
lem to exist, by setting people off
against each other such as trying
to divide homosexuals away, to
make them something less than
being human Gantt said after a
brief appearance at the 4th Dis-
trict Democratic Convention.
Meanwhile. Helms, at a rally
in Coldsboro, said complacency
among voters, not an opposing
politician, is his chief campaign
1 hear far too often, 'Jesse's
got it made " Helms said at the
rally at Carolina Warehouse, at-
tended by nearly 300 people.
Well. lesse ain't got it made.
"No matter who theother side
nominates, if it's Mortimer Snerd,
they're going to get 40 or 45 per-
cent of the vote in November, right
oft the top. rsgoing to depend on
people in this state who believe in
conservative principles to get to
the polls
On the floor of the Senate this
week. Helms spoke against a $600
million bill that supporters said
would provide emergency relief
for communities and local health
systems overburdened with AIDS
cases. Helms charged that too
much money was being spent on
AIDS at the expense of other dis-
eases and that the money would
encourage homosexuality.
"What originally began as a
measured response to a public
health emergency has become a
weapon, frankly, for the deterio-
ration if not the destruction of
America's Judeo-Christian value
system Helms said.
But Gantt said that Helms
"demonstrated a kind of mean-
spiritedness that doesn't go with
his so-called Judeo-Christian val-
"I just thought it was an em-
barrassing performance and an-
other example of how irrelevant
he is to the times we live inGantt
spoke for about 15 minutes to the
40 people gathered for the 4th
District's women's brunch in
Raleigh but spoke only briefly
during the convention later. He
also made stops Saturday at the
2nd District convention in Nash-
ville and in Burlington.Helms said
Saturday that the$3 billion sought
by Congress for AIDS research
would take away money for re-
search into other diseases such as
cancer, heart disease and
Easley, who campaigned in
Asheville before a speech in Mor-
ganton, also blasted Helms, argu-
ing against his positions on issues
ranging from education and the
environment to abortion and
Easley said in Morganton it's
time for Democrats to "focus on
the issues and make (Helms') rec-
ord an issue. We've never done
that; we've always got caught up
in national politics and that's a
mistake. We need to focus on local
issues and that's what I've done
Gantt won the endorsement
Friday of former political rival
John Ingram, and was met with
questions Saturday over Ingram's
requests to be paidjor any cam-
paign expenses. Gantt said there
was no offer to pay Ingram for his
endorsement or to send him out
on the campaign trail at the Gantt
campaign's expense.
"He said, 'If you want me to
campaign for you, then you're
going to have to compensate me
for my time " Gantt said. "But
my style isbasically 1 like to do my
own campaigning. I've since heard
that money offers were being
made, but I can't speak to that

Superior Court drug cases
increase with new state laws
RALEIGH (AP) � A state law
making possession of cocaine a
felony has increased the number
of drug cases in Superior Courts,
but it ha snot necessarily convicted
more people.
The law, which went into ef-
fect Oct. 1,1989, makes possession
of any amount of cocaine a felony.
Contested cases are handled in
Superior Court; the maximum
penalty is five years in prison.
Prior to the new law, posses-
sion of less than 1 gram of cocaine
was a misdemeanor and was
handled in District Court.
In April, a Wake County jury
found a suspect innocent after
police said they found one-tenth
of a gram of cocaine in the person's
"When you are in a drug case,
you expect to see a quantity more
than one-tenth of a gram of co-
caine Donna Kee, one of the ju-
rors, said in an interview last week.
The law was meant primarily
to deal more harshly with sellers
of crack cocaine, which comes in a
small, smokable form. But in prac-
tice, the law is snaring users of
powder cocaine.
Anita Quigless, a Wake
County assistant district attorney,
recently tried a cocaine case in

COROLLA, N.C. (AP) � The
state Division of Environmental
Management has decided to take
a second look at a developer's
proposal to dump salt water into
the freshwater Currituck Sound
after initially recommending ap-
"It's still up in the air said
Dale Overcash of the division's
water quality section after the
proposal was met with opposi-
tion from the state Wildlife Re-
sources Commission, the Curri-
tuck County commissioners and
residents who spoke at a stormy
public hearing last month.
The 120-square-mile soundin
northeastern North Carolina has
lured duck hunters and bass fish-
ermen to Currituck County for
decades. Fishermen alone add
about $1 million to the local econ-
omy each year. The News and
Observer of Raleigh reported.
The developers of Ocean Hill,
an upscale vacation community
north of Corolla on the the Outer
Banks, have applied for a state
permit to dump concentrated
brine from a water purification
plant into the sound's mildly
brackish waters.
They have also filed an appli-
cation for a more expensive op-
tion: discharging the brine into
the Atlantic Ocean.
James "Jimbo" Ward, one of
the five Ocean Hill partners, said
he didn't think the brine would
harm the sound.
"The county is coming from a
position of almost no research
he said, adding that some county
officials used the issue as a cam-
paign issue during the May pri-
mary election. "The developer is
the easiest person to go after
But Yates Barber of Elizabeth
City, a wildlife biologist and ad-
viser to the Albemarle Pamlico
Estuarine Study, said salinity
could destroy aquatic plants, key
elements to the life in the sound.
"It is a very shallow sound
with a lot of sandy bottom he
ing keep water clear, and clear
water helps plants and plankton
to grow. Plants are valuable food
to waterfowl, otherbirdsand fish
Barber said the system was
thrown out of balance between
1985 and 1988, when drooght
raised the salinity of the sound
and killed many of the plants.
The submerged aquatic plants
and black bass were also dam-
aged when the city of Virginia
Beach, Va pumped ocean water
into Back Bay at the north end of
the sound, he said. That pumping
has since been halted.
The Division of Environ-
mental Management will have to
decide on the sound-side permit
by July, Overcash said. The ocean
discharge applicabon is still un-
der consideration.

Budget cuts 'heat up' ECU campus
Enough isenough. It seemsKkeeveryoneon
campus is complaining about the university's divi-
sion to turn ilf the air conditioning on Fridays to
reduce energy cost. Bui isn't living without the lux-
ury of air conditioning worth protecting our educa-
tional program?
The fact of the matter is that the state oi
North Carolina put itself in a bind by trying to make
up a 1989-90 budget shortfall of over five billion
dollars in three months. And what better place to
make cuts than the UNC school system?
Now, the cuts are not affecting E V alone;
other schools in the UNC system are taking more
drastic approaches to trim the cost of operations. In
an article published in the Greensboro Hews and Rec-
er.ilast week. I'NC-C.reensboro wascutting33teach-

versity bad planned to prune 17. And if the state's
budget deficit carries into the 1990-91 fiscal year
(which appears to be the case), the university may be
forced to eliminate teaching positions.
Concern has also arisen about the cuts' pos-
sible impacts on the university's computer systems.
While the vast majority of computers on campus will
be shut down after the 1130 deadline, others will be
forced to remain on and experience the, known
to wreak havocon their sensitive internal parts. But
decisions have to be made, and priorities ordered.
If the state had better planned for the 1989-90
budget, the university systems would not be suffer-
ing from these cutbacks. And since it is a North
Carolina law that our budget must be balanced gong
into the next fiscal year, it might be interesting to see
what our politicians in Raleigh plan to do. But above
all, let's hope that the academic program of ECU will
not suffer too greatly from the state's foul-up

America needs to get active
Is Bush back in the hot seat?
By Nathaniel Mead
Editorial Columnist
In the Spring of 1988, Pro-Ira-
nian Shnte Moslem kidnappers
released a videotape of American
journalist Terry Anderson, the
longest-held foreign hostage in
Lebanon, reading a message that
accused the IS government of
preventing his release. It was
Anderson's fourth year in captiv-
ity. His nearlv three-minute mes-
sage sounded heartfelt and coher-
ent enough, at least, for the Asso-
ciated Press to share its contents.
After telling friends and fam-
ily of his appreciation for their
efforts, Anderson said provoca-
tively, "I have been very close to
being released several times over
the past three vears, but each time
it seems that the U.S. government
usesits influence to stopany agree-
ment, and I don't understand this.
1 am not asking President Re-
agan to deal with terrorists, al-
though Mr. George Bush did so
in the Iran-Contra affair and TWA
hijacking Our problem as hos-
tages could have been solved a
long time ago without such com-
plications as arms deals
Anderson did not elaborate
on the accusation of Bush's ties to
Irangate;but for many Americans,
including myself, it came as no
surprise. The truth of Iranamok
has been exposed in nearly a dozen
books, including one by a biparti-
san team of senators and others by
reputable law firms. If the Senate
and judiciary system ever regains
the opportunity and backbone to
put Bush on the stand, the history
books will show that this Prez has
probably done more to undermine
the integrity of the Constitution
than any other before him.
The truth, in case you haven't
heard by now, boils down to this:
When Congress cut off CIA Contra
aid in 1984, Lt. Col. Oliver North.
under the direction of Reagan,
Bush, Meese, and Casey, reached
out to a "secret team" to illegally
recommence funding and resup-
plving the Contras. Sccord and
North orchestated the arms sales
to Iran, selling U.S. weapons at
many times their original cost and
illegally depositing the extra prof-
its into foreign bank accounts.
Some of this money was used to
illegally support the Contras in
their war on the Sandinistas.
Memos show that Bush was noti-
fied of the Iran arms-for-hostages
deal seventeen times.
Despite overwhelming evi-
dence to the contrary, including
many documents submitted to the
Tower commission, Bush has re-
peatedly denied that he wasaware
of thearms-for-hostages exchange.
And when the Iran-Contra trial was
over, Bush reacted vehemently to
reporters' questions about a quid
pro quo agreement that led to the
construction of Contra bases and
resupping of airstrips in Hondu-
ras. "There was no quid pro quo he
said. "There has been needless,
mindless speculation about my
word of honor But as discussed
in the October 16,1989 New Yorker
and elsewhere, there was a quid pro
quo agreement. Indeed, the evi-
dence suggests that Bush person-
ally delivered its conditions to
President Cordova of Honduras.
The show's not over yet,
however. Thanks to the fact that
OUie North neglected to burn his
personal notebooks-�evidently it
took all his energy to shred the
other stuff Bush is now back in
the hotseat. Excerpts from copies
of North's notebooks have re-
newed questions about whether
then Vice-President Bush was
more deeply involved in assist-
ing the Nicaraguan Contra rebels
than he has acknowledged. If
there is evidence that Bush was
directly involved, or that the dia-
ries were edited or blacked out,
the House intelligence or judici-
ary committees may conduct
another investigation, according
to Rep. Lee Hamilton, who led
the Iran-Contra inquiry.
Whatever the outcome.
Bush's ongoing denial and asser-
tions that he didn't know about
the Iran-Contra mess are prepos-
terous. Moreover, was it "mind-
less" (using Bush's term) to in-
vestigate the possibility of a Presi-
dential candidate subverting the
will of the Constitution, the Con-
gress, and the American people?
And given Bush's vacuous rheto-
ric on tax and environmental is-
sues, is his word of honor really
worth anything at all? Not if
you're educated enough to know
what the word means. But per-
haps an even more poignant
question is why the Tower com-
mission let Bush off the hook in
the first place.

On June 17, 1982, I joined a
million souls in New York City's
Central Park to protest against
nuclear weaponry and racist geno-
cide. By that time many Ameri-
cans were getting downright in-
dignant about the Reagan
administration's 'voodoo arms
control We could not stand by
quietlv as the old actor slashed
rapid growth oi the military sec-
tor, even as the nation had enough
nukes to destroy the world forty
times over, seemed like sheer
Bv all appearances, the rally
was a great success. People ar-
rived in cars, trains, and buses
from all over the U.S. to make
themselves heard. Expecting
trouble. New York's finest were
out in full regalia that day. But
instead of violence, hundreds of
policemen were adorned with
flowers. We sang and reveled in
the music of lames Taylor. Joni
Mitchell, and other tine musicians.
There was an infectious camara-
derie reminiscent of the early-
marches forcivilnghtsand against
the Vietnam War. (Actually, I'm
too voung to have known the spirit
of those days, except vicariously.)
Though Reagan failed to re-
spond in any constructive man-
ner, the sheer sie of the Central
Park protest suggested that the
"me generation" was not a lost
cause. In mv euphoric naivete, I
believed that major changes were
in order for the nation and that
world peace was no longer a mere
pipedream. Even when Reagan
later publicly condemned the
nuclear freeze movement almost
in the same breath denouncing his
Evil Empire�1 remember think-
ing that he would soon go the way
of Nixon, ousted from office with
nary a whimper.
Of course, these were all fool-
ish notions, especially my imagi-
nary comparisons with the late
'60s, when the country was caught
in a climate of intense hostility
and division over U.S. foreign
policv in Vietnam. Like many
students today, I had little aware-
ness of the emotionally charged
atmosphere of divided families
and polarized nation during
Nixon's reign. I was only vaguely
familiar with the bitter repression
mounted by the U.S. government
against the popular anti-war
movement, which reached its
zenith in 1970 with the Kent State
student killings.
But on that day in Central Park
r hV r
about military escalation, and we
wanted the government to do
something about it. It seemed
enough that so many people
would turn out for an event. On
the other hand, this largest rally of
the decade seemed to accomplish
little, roday I wonder if such
events may not even feed into a
collective apathy by giving peopie
little more than an emotional re-
lease, a way to break the cycle of
frustration over an incompetent
But the prevailing apathy
cannot last much longer, for our
society has moved toward increas-
ing chaos. Each year the gap be-
tween rich and poor grows ever
wider. Drugs and crime are more
rampant than ever. Our social
programs and school systems are
still pitifully regressive. Our mili-
tary still supports foreign policies
based on stealth and treachery in
El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama
and elsewhere. Clearly the Reagan
era isn' t over vet, and many people
are still readingGeorge Bush's lips
even as he cuts fat business deals
with China and tacitly exonerates
Deng for mass murder.
Why hasn't Bush's Re-
aganesque administration
aroused more dissent and demon-
strations by younger people? Why
do surveys show him with such a
high public approval rating? Evi-
dently Reagan's feel-good ap-
proach ("don't worry, be happy")
and glossy promises of material
prosperity have sunk deep into
the collective unconscious of
America. Also, many of us are
being overtaken by a sense oi dis-
illusionment, a desire to "tuneout"
from the world�and make our-
selves powerless. Perhaps, too,
we're conditioned into passivity
by reading magazines and watch-
ing TV instead of actually doing
The pervasive pessimism in
our culture is particularly under-
standable when we consider the
bewildering assault of social and
environmental problems we must
trv to sort out And many of our
technologies, while representing
processors, digital watches, etc.)
have become the means through
which those in power manipulate
change in our society. Computers
for example, are allowing greater
management control over the
work force�a level of control that
could getoutof hand. Weare going
to have to start setting moral codes
for computer usage�and not
simplv focusingon those renegade
Some technologies offer pat-
terns of control that should be
outright rejected. Take nuclear
power, which is intractably struc-
tured around the idea of the au-
thoritarian state. The potentials
hazardsof radioactivity and waste
make strict security measures a
necessity around nuclear power
plants. Or take the recent innova-
tions in "artificial intelligence
which isheavily grounded in mili-
tary research and development
This would allow any repressive
governnment to monitor tele-
phone lines for suspicious con-
versations. Opposition is the onlv
sane public responsein thesecases.
Perhaps we put too much faith
in the power of education and not
enough in the power of change
itself. Of course, all action should
be guided bv clear vision and
sound reasoning, but vision is
worthless without action. The
moral and political questions we
continually raise will be nothing
other than vainglory reflections if
we fail to translate them into suc-
cessful action. It's going to take a
lot more than letter-writing cam-
paigns to end the "Age of Greed"
and make this world a better place
to live.
To the Editor
to 'attack'
To the editor.
This letter is i n response to the
unsolicited, and unsigned attack
against the students who reside in
Scott Residence Hall.
In an article published in the
Attitudes (Bad Attitudes) section
of The East Carolinian on Tuesday,
April 24, 1990, an anonymous
writer exposed several of Scott's
residents as being bullish for
wanting to get what they had paid
for; air-conditioned rooms.
The writer of the article was
condemning the residents for
demanding either that the air-
conditioning system be turned on
or a refund of the money ($80 extra
per person) paid for an air-condi-
tioned room be given. 1 don't
blame the students who felt this
way one bit.
I live in Scott, and I think that
students should not have things
"stolen" from them that they have
paid for. Note that there was never
any mention of a cut-back in the
air-conditioning in our housing
We were informed of this
practice only after we had paid
the extra money for the air condi-
tioned rooms. I feel that this is a
pretty under-handed trick on the
part of ECU officials.
I wonder how the anonymous
writer of the article would feel if
he was cheated by someone in
some situation such as this.
I also wonder if this writer
works for the housing department.
If so, it figures since the housing
department, as well as many other
departments on this campus,
throw red tape all over you as
soon as you walk into the front
If the writer of this article ever
has any further opinions, I hope
he leams how to sign his name to
them. Thank you!

The state spends $33 million a
year on the program. As of March
30, there were 1,066 youths classi-

Youths through age 18 can be

and local authorities.
Six to nine million tires are
taken off cars in North Carolina
every year, officials estimate.
In a measure to find some-
thing to do with them, state legis-
lators last year included a section
on tire disposal in a law designed
to Improve the management of
solid waste in general.
It's the first regulation in the
state to deal specifically with old
tires since the invention of the
There are tire dumps across
the state, said Dee Eggers of the
Solid Waste Management section
of the state Division of Environ-
mental Management.
"I think the division knows
about more nuisance sites than it
could possibly ever handle, and I
also think there are more sites that
we don't even know about she
In trying to decide how to
handle the problem, proposed
regulations for cleaning up dump
sites are being considered by the
division at a public hearing Mon-
day at 9 a.m. in Raleigh.
Under the regulations, which
would go into effect July 1, dumps
would have to be cleaned up
within 90 davs of the time they
were declared a nuisance. The
owner of the dump would be li-
able for cleanup costs, and the
division could levy a $50-a-tire
fine for failure to clean up a dump.
Tires also present a problem
for counties. Under a law that went
into effect March 1, counties have
been authorized to charge a han-
dling fee to anyone bringing tires
to them for disposal.
In large numbers, tires can
become a breeding ground for
mosquitoesand vermin. If the pile
ca tches f i re, noxious chemicals are
sent into the air and onto the
ground. And when taken to a
landfill, where they take up a lot
of space, they refuse to stay buried
because they trap air and work
their way back to the top.
On March 1, it became illegal
to bury whole tires in a sanitary
landfill. Counties were told they
would have to find an alternative
method of disposing of the tires.
The new law has been a boon
to some businesses.
Since the law went into effect.

Defense lawyers and some
prosecutors complain that first-
time offenders, under the new law,
do not have the option to plea
bargain to misdemeanor posses-
sion and thereby avoid a perma-
nent felony record.
Eugene Dunn Jr a Raleigh
service station owner, agrees. He
is one person who was convicted
for possession of a small amount
of cocaine.
On Oct. 27, Raleigh detectives
showed up at his Texaco station
bearing a search warrai.t.
An informant had told them
that one of Dunn's employees, a
former convict, had been selling
cocaine and that the drugs could
be found hidden throughout the
shop. But thedetec rives foundonly
three-tenths of a gram of cocaine
hidden inside a pack of rolling
papers tucked under the station's
cash register.
Dunn, who was charged with
possession of cocaine as owner of
the shop, testified at his trial that
he knew nothing about it. In an
interview last week, he said he
had hoped to run for the Raleigh
City Council one day, but now, as
a felon, he can't even vote.
"I've been a victim of the sys-
tem he said. "It's costing me

everything I've worked hard for is
Dunn received a three-year
suspended sentence, probation for
five years and a $1,000 fine, and he
must submit to warrantless
searches and urine tests for the
duration of his probation. His
sentence is typical of those others
have received.
Dunn's only previous viola-
tions were several traffic offenses.
MikeDodd,a Raleigh defense
attorney, said the law should
provide first-time offenders the
chance to pay for their crimes
without being branded felons.
"Our system has always been
tailored to sentence people based
on what they've done and a vari-
ety of factors including their edu-
cation, background and experi-
ence he said. "This just simply
removes all of that arbitrarily and
says these thingsare of no value. It
makes no sense
District attorneys have the
option of prosecuting cocaine
possession as a felon or reducing
it to a misdemeanor charge, such
as possession of drug parapher-

Manager moves forward
Attic adapts to administration changes
By Jeff Chester
Special to The East Carolinian
For the past 18 years, Tom
Haines has been the owner and
manager of North Carolina's old-
est live entertainment night club
under the same name and man-
As he finalizes this portion of
his career in Greenville, Haines
recalls the Attic's good and bad
times, its stability and its growth,
and he discusses the highlights of
Attic historv.
Q. 1 low did you first become
involved with the Attic?
A. 1 was in the army, sta-
tioned in Vietnam in 1969. I re-
ceived an "early out" by going
back to school.
1 already had a marketing
degree trom Gannon University
in Fne, Pa. So, I decided tocomc to
ECU to obtain a second degree in
commercial art After a few se-
mesters they tripled the tuition for
out of state students.
Being from Endicott NY. put
me in a bad financial situation. I
couldn't work while on the G.I.
bill. I was told if 1 worked for six
months I could become a N.C.
I heard about a nightclub
called the Id that went out of busi-
ness in the summer of 1971. Two
weeks later, tearing out and re-
building was in full swing and the
Attic opened its doors for busi-
ness on Sept. 7, 1971.
Q. To what do von attribute
the long time success of the Attic?
A. There are a number of
reasons, but two stand out. First:
manv people, including some in
the industry, perceive the night-
club business to be mostlv fun and
games; in reality its mostly hard
work and 14 hour days.
The second reason is variety
in entertainment. From ij one.
Tom Haines. Attic coordinator for 18 years is expanding his career to
work with the 68 Comedy Zones in the southeastern United States
the Attic has offered the most
diverse entertainment line up in
the state. The Palomino Club in
Charlotte is the only other club in
N .C. currently offering as diverse
an entertainment menu. In fact
I'm willing to bet there's not an-
other club in the south that has
offered Rock 'n' Roll (our main-
stay), Beach, Heavy Metal, Blue
Grass, Punk, Oldies, Christian,
Reggae, Rhythm n Blues, Speed
Metal, azz,Glitter Rock, Pop, New
Wave, Folk, CountrySouthern
Rock and of course Comedy.
Q. What is the most memo-
rable night in the past 18 years?
A. That's an easy question to
answer. On Jan. 27, 1981 The
Pointer Sisters performed in con-
cert for an NBC music seriescalled
(The Blue Jean Networks When
they performed they had the 2
song on Billboard's charts, and
when the show aired in Septem-
ber of 1981 they had another 2
hit. The shov. was awesome and it
wasaired worldwideover the next
year. In fact, it was aired again last
year on the A&E network.
Q. What night would you
most like to forget � not counting
the night in 184 when the Attic
burned down?(note: The Attic was
located at 209 E. 5th Street from
September 1971 to January 1976.
Then it moved to 103 E. 4th Street
until the fire in September of 184
when it moved Kick into its origi-
nal location.)
A. Not counting the fire, I'd
have to say any night with a no
show. Truck breakdowns, singers
with laryngitis, bands mistakenly

their questions. "They ask. Is this
the place?
It is. Hemingway described
the false-front store with its wide
porch in "Up in Michigan a scan-
dalous story about the rape of a
Horton Bay woman. It was one of
his earliest published stories.
But that isn't what the fans
want to know.
They want whatever it was
here that flamed the son of an Oak
Park, III doctor into the burning
bright writer who crystalized the
ripple of a trout stream or the
seduction of an Indian girl.
"They want to know why it
influenced Hemingway says Bill
Ohle, 79, a retired ad man from
Chicago whose grandfather con-
structed many of the buildings
around Horton Bay.
Ohle lives down the lane from
the store, in his father's hilltop
cabin overlooking Lake Char-
levoix. There'sa la nd sea pe painted
bv Hemingway's mother hanging
over the fireplace.
The pilgrims want something
larger than life, some sign of the
emerging greatness, Ohle says.
What they find are stories about a
boy nobody much noticed.
Ohle was a scrawny-legged
kid while teen-age Ernest Hem-
ingway freeloaded chicken din-
ners at Liz Dilworth's boarding
house across the street and cast for
trout on the bav at the bottom of
the hill.

later and never coming back.

Emptying the garbage has
never been one of mv favorite
chores. The task, however, is quite
simple: Gather all disposable
items, put them in a sack and toss
it into the closest dumpster. You
never reallv stop to think what
other people consider to be gar-
bage, until you reach your neigh-
borhood refuse bin.
Finally, I get motivated. Heft-

Coat hangers, clothing, stuffed
animals, even old plastic trash
containers inhabit the bowels of
the dumpster. Enthralled by the
rubbish of my neighbors, I ponder
a salvage mission. I guess it was
the irony of seeing a trash con-
tainer in a dumpster that made me
realize that people don't really
think about what they throwawav.
It made me want to retrieve my
contribution to the realm of trash,
investigate the contents, and try
to determine if I am as guilty as
mv neighbors.
Eventually, I become bored
with poking through mounds of
residue and start on my journey
back to the apartment. I catch an
inquisitive glance from a neigh-
bor, cunousas to mv actions at the
local trash bin. Fie probably thinks,
"What is this idiot up to, poking

Extensive research shows joy resembles soda-pop

I sometimes think that when I

younger, I enjoyed life more than
I do now. But when I am well
rested (or sufficiently rested), I
realize that the opposite isequallv

Thinking back to my child-
hood days I have a hard time
remembering tremendous stress.
Yeah, my little brother got on my
nerves some days. He followed
me from place to place, repeated
what I said and mimicked my
every move. That's cute, but it
gets old fast.
My mom made me clean my
room, pick up my toys, and make
my bed. She even made me wash
dishes and put away the grocer-
ies. Quite a tyrant wasn't she.
At the time, I told her,
"Mommy, you make me work SO
hard We both laugh pretty hard
over that complaint when we
compare it to how much I work in
college. Laughter makes things
seem easier. Laughter works as a
great medicine, and it has no side
My dad � well, he was dad.
Though he was firm and respon-
sible for much of the discipline in
my family, he always had a corny
joke or a silly face to make me
laugh. Those expressions always
seemed tremendously hysterical
when made in grocery stores �
probably because of the frustra-
tion our roaring laughter brought
my mother. Fortunately, she's a
good sport.
There is a lot in my life that's
fortunate. I realize that. From an
outside look, my surroundings
were sufficient for producing the
joy of childhood.
My lifestyle helped then, as it
does now. I've never had to work
beyond my strength. The late
nights I've spent at East Carolin-
ian have brought me close to col-
lapse many times. Nevertheless,
I'm alive and well.
I have never worried about
having clothes to wear or food to
eat. I've never lacked these neces-
sities. I've always had a warm
place to live. I have lived in safety.
Ha vi ng t hese necessi tics read -
ily available have reduced the
anxiety in my life. But in them-
selves, they have never produced
joy in my heart.
Joy can not be produced
within the human body. It must
be placed there from an outside
force. The source of my childhood
Kry runs deeper than my circum-
stance or situation. The joy of the
Lord Jesus is the source of my joy.
It flows like an unstoppable, rag-
ing river that saturates everything

it? No. It's not. Joy is a simple
substance. Babies understand it.
You can see it on their faces. The
innocent smiles reflecting the

joy. Joy is not meant to be compli-
Complicating joy is like wa-
tering down soda-pop. It just be-

out; swallowing is torture and is a
last resort. For joy to remain joy, it
must be appreciated and experi-
enced in it's original form and
simplicity. To over-analyze, ex-

its flavor.
How does the joy in your life

It you've been keeping up with the latest bands from the
Raleigh music scene, then you know the lastest creation has
plenty ot rock-n-roll soul. That's right, I'm talking about
Gardners of Soule, an original rock outfit that has some
pretty impressive music, along with an all-star line up. The
band features guitarists Michael Gardner (forrnerly of PKM)
and Audlev Freed (formerly ot The Point), drummer Kenny
Soule (formerly of Nan tucket), Robert Reams (formerly of
Sidewinder) and vocalist Phillip Gardner. Gardners of
Soule made their live debut at the Attic a couple weeks ago.
You can catch them at The Brewerv in Raleigh on June 8.

Kurupsure, a thrash quartet from Goldsboro, has been
rattling a lew heads at the .Attic lately It seems a couple
weeks ago the band tilled in tor Centerfold, a commercial
metal band, after they canceled a show at the downtown

the cancellation and got more than a despot' thrash in their
faces. Currently, Kurupsure has a new three-song demo
that features fast and crunchv tunes like Ravages of War

Q. What has been the biggest
struggle for the Attic?
A. The struggle to make a
particular date work. Everything
needs to click. Attendance can be
affected by the weather, the econ-
omy, the competitors, the day of
the week, changes in the bands
line-up, etc. etc. etc. You have to
adjust to long term things like
changes in the drinking age, but
you also need to be concerned
about the immediate, like pre-

It's also frustrating to talk to so
many people who haven't come
because they are not members.
Anyone with $1 to $3 (sometimes
free) and forty five seconds of free
time can be a member.
Q. What are some concerts
that almost happened, but didn't.
A. Here's eight almost with
eight different reasons for not
happening. Bruce Springsteen
because nobody knew who he was
and I couldn't afford to take a
chance on a $3 cover charge. The
Talking Heads because their tour
was changed at the last minute.
Heart because we couldn't con-
firm our backers to produce our
follow-up video of the Pointer
Sisters. Richard Marx because 1
was too stupid to see his potential.
The Pretenders because routing
never clicked into place. The Band
because one of the members died
two days before the concert. Huey
Lewis because I wasout bid on the
second attempt after his agent
postponed our first date and Pink
Floyd because I woke up in the
middle of the night and discov-
ered 1 was dreaming.
Q. What effect did the ad-
vent of the Comedy Zone have on
the Attic?
A. It had a two-fold broaden-
ing effect. First, it broadened the
entertainment base on the Attics
schedule of events. Secondly, it
broadened the customer base.
Each different type of music
brings out a defined customer
profile. But comedy has no de-
fined boundaries because every-
one likes to laugh.
Q� Name some of the high-
lights of the past 18 years?
A. I'll keep it short with the
first few that come to mind � the
Attics hosting of the Rene Pierre
Football Championshipduring the
late '70s with contestants coming
in from fivestates,beingpresented
with a gold album by Harvey
Dalton Arnold of the Outlaws in
1980, Howard Hessman hosting
the Miss Attic Contest in 1982,
and the Pointer Sisters concert for
NBC in 1981.
Q. What are you going to
miss most about the Attic?
A. The people. My managers
and employees who gave me very
littlegriefbuttonsof good memo-
ries and dedicated service. I'd love
to mentionabouta hundred names
but instead I'd just like to make a
collective public thank you. I'll
also miss all the customers and all
the thousandsof talented perform-
ers that I've had the privilege of
working with over the past two
Earth Day
Continued from page 6
it came to me � advertising.
With the increasing concern
for the environment, a new mar-
ket has appeared. In order for the
manufacturer to reach this market
they created the concept of biode-
gradable plastic, jacking up the
price in the process. Well, that's
big business, anything for a buck.
After viewing this gripping
expose, I made a resolution to at
least make some effort towards
recycling. The first step in my
confused process was to give up
plastic trash bags. This was easy,
being that I receive paper bags
every time I go to the supermar-
ket. The next step was harder,
organization. When you recycle,
all items have to be separated:
newspapers in one pile, aluminum
cans in another (the Earth Day's
Result biggest pile by far), clear
glass and colored glass in separate
heaps, and cardboard. After or-
ganizing my trash I found that the
items actually placed in the trash
container were drastically re-
duced. Thus, my trips to the
dreaded dumpster were spaced
farther apart. So what if my neigh-
bor calls me "whimpy
About a week after my recy-
cling project went into effect, my
apartment took on a new look, not
to mention a new aroma. The time
had come for me to get rid of my
collection of debris. But where
should I take it. Through a friend,
I found that the closest place was
across the street from Overton's
So I loaded up the Buick and
started on my quest. Driving
across town, I experienced a feel-
ing of accomplishment. I was fi-
nally doing something to help the
environment. Instead of complain-
ing about the sorry state of the
world, I was acting out a plan for
improvement. It may sound kind
of corny, but who cares. The world
around me started to take on a
new look. Greenville has escaped
a lot of the environmental slaugh-
ter. By recycling, I am helping to
keep it that way.
Q. So lets wrap this up with
the final question: What is in the
future for the Attic and Tom
A. The Attic is now in the
more than capable hands of joe
Tronto and Jeff Cobb. Joe has been
the manager for the past two years
and has been on the managerial
staff for the past ten years. Jeff was
a manager in the late '70s and
early '80s.
The Attics format will remain
the same, but with support from
the college community you'll see
an increase in the number of con-
certs. Joe isactively pursuing more
involvement with ECU organiza-
tions. Give him a call and you'll
see what I mean.
As for myself, I now live in
Charlotte (with my wife Nancy
and our two children, Tracy &
Adam) working with Creative

Rita gives advice for time management
Dear Rita:
I've graduated and don't
know where my life will now go.
I've applied to graduate schools
but if I don't get in the school of
my choice, 1 don't think I really
want to go anywhere else. I'm
contemplating looking for a job
butsincel'm the first of my friends
to graduate, I'm afraid to leave
Greenville. How can I overcome
my fear to leave this vacuum of a
city? I feel trapped and worry
that 1 will not be able to get out.
Dear Graduation:
In order to resolve this prob-
lem, first find out what it is that is
really bothering you. Then, con-
front these things within yourself
that foster your fear, one thing at a
time. Start with honesty�"To
thine own self be true Asvouare
successful in this process, you will
not only become independent bu t
you will like yourself.
Dear Rita:
I need money. Lots of money.
1 need desperately toleam to study
more effectively and to cope with
college life. Please help me � I'm
desperate! I also have a problem
dealing with the tons of home-
work I have to do. Please give me
some suggestions. These profes-
sors act as if theirs is the only class
I have.
Dear Desperate:
You need peace of mind. You
need money and time. You desire
an education. Which is most im-
portant to you? It would help if
you could get your priorities to-
gether. Everything that is worth
anything has a price and you have
to find out if the price is too high
for you or if you are willing to pay
that price. Once you figure that
out, then do the best you can. As
far as the money is concerned,
there are always needs but you
have to work within your means.
If vou arc in debt, you can start
from where you are and work your
way from there. If not having
enough finance causes you men-
tal turmoil, then maybe you can
put vour education on "hold" until
you can resolve some of the debts.
Dear Rita:
Please help! I'm graduating
this summer and have now met
the man I have been waiting for.
But what is the point of beginning
a relationship with a person in
Greenville when 1 have to leave
Greenville to get a law degree. I
feel once you find that special
person, you shouldn't let go. My
career ismost important. I'mafraid
of gettingoff my career track. What
should 1 do? Help!
Career oriented.
Dear Career:
Life always has tough choices.
Perhaps the thought of having the
man of your dreams has never
been challenged before. Now that
he has come along, the thought of
your education being most im-
portant to you is challenging your
pursuit of thisdream relationship.
Only you can decide which is most
important to you. If you get into
this relationship and you both find
that it's what you want then you
go from there working it out as
best you can. It may mean that
your education will be second on
your priority list and this dream
relationship first or vice versa.
Dear Rita:
One of my best friends is a
guy. We do everything together.
Putt-Putt� Golf & Games

We go out. We argue and we
advise each other on other rela-
tionships. The problem I have is
that I want more out of this friend-
ship, but I'm afraid to tell him.
Dear Friend:
Are vou afraid to tell him
because you fear rejection? As a
rule, we are harder on ourselves
than others are on us. You could
rehearse the situation and what
you would say to him in your
mind. Then, be willing to accept
his answer even if it is "no But
until you are able to accept his
answer, it probably would be wise
not to mention it to him. If he does
not share your feelings, are you
willing to keep this friendship?

ECU students win contest for literary work
Two ECU students have won
the 1990 student essay contest of
the North Carolina Folklore Soci-
ety. Cheryl Dudasik-Wiggs, a
graduate student in English and
Women's Studies, has won the
Cratis D. Williams Prize, and
Donna Dunnehoo, a senior, has
received the W. Amos Abrams

Ohle said. "It made a deep im-
pression on the guv. He had a ball
out here
It was wild then. It wasa kid's
dream. Those were days when a
boy could steal away from his
mother's cottage and catch trout
and sleep under the stars. The
roads were dusty logging trails.
Indians lived in the woods.
Ohle points out the window
toward a dark strip of land jutting
across the sparkling water. That's
where Ernest loved to fish. That's
the point Hemingway's young
Nick Adams rowed to that last
night with his girl in 'The End of
How's the fishing now? No

Hemingway spent every
summer of his youth at Walloon
Lake. In 1918, just 19 years old, he
went to Italy as an ambulance
driver. He returned from World
War I with wounds from 227 pieces
of shrapnel in his legs and took up
residence in a boarding house in
Petoskey, a hilly port town six
miles to the north next to Lake
Michigan. He also earned the
reputation of a ruffian.
Michigan changed. Wealthy
resorters built 22-room log cabins
with three-car garages amid the
tiny cottages on Walloon Lake.
Petoskev exploded into a commer-
cialized tourist town. Thebeanery
where Hemingway once ate now
in the summer.
Today, developers on I ake
Charlevoix advertise $325,000
waterfront condominiums on
"Hemingway Pointe" with a slip

Biographer Constance Cap-
pel, in her 1977 book "Heming-
way in Michigan quotes an old
chum asking Hemingway if he
would ever come back.
"No he replied. "It's too
civilized now
Only Horton Bay, a logging
town on the skids when Heming-
way saw it, looks the same. Its
population has shrunk to 47.
Hemingway returned in his
writing, casting northern Michi-
gan places and people in one novel
and a dozen short stories about
birth and death and sex and trout.
Fact and fiction flew together
like particles in an atom smasher.
Hemingway exchanged the Fox
River for the Two-Hearted River
some 45 miles away. He turned
girlfriends into lovers.
Very real people got hurt.
Marjorie Bump for one. The red-
headed girl with the easy smile
who waited tables at Dilworth's
became Marge, jilted by Ernest's
autobiographical Nick Adams in
"The End of Something" and later
fantasized about in "The Three-
Day Blow
"She lived in terror of Hem-
ingway Ohle says of his cousin.
"They were obviously childhood
sweetheartsThen he goes and
writes her real name in a couple of
stories. All through life people
discovered she was the Marjorie
in the stories.
"She never got away from it.
It plagued her. I think this washer
first love, really. But half the time
it turned to hate
Marjorie Bump died a few
years ago.
Yet Hemingway stood in the
library with his cane and rakish
Italian officers' cape the winter of
1919 and told the Ladies' Aid
Society about the horrors and
glories of war.

Ernest Hemingway, just as com-
pletely as he left Horton Bay. The

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) � The ACC must decide
this week whether to ban Maryland from the league's
basketball tournament because of NCAA sanctions
against the Terrapins.
"It'll be difficult. They've never banned anybody
from the tournament said Tom Mickle, an assistant
league commissioner and chief spokesman for the
eight-member conference. "That'll be decided,
whether Maryland's out of the tournament. There's a
lot of implications
The NCAA nas banned Maryland from being on
television during the upcoming season after finding
the school guilty of 18 rule violations under ex-Coach
Bob Wade. Every game in the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence tournament is televised. So, something has to
give and league officials are expected to ban
Maryland from the tournament when they meet this
week in Myrtle Beach.
Moreover, Mickle said, the loss of Maryland
from the league TV package may lead to changes in
the contract with Raycom Inc a sports television
company based in Charlotte, N.C.
"The main problem is just finding what games
there are to put on TV, and how that affects the TV
contract Mickle said. "We've gotten to the point
where last year all except three games are on TV.

same time, we're very pleased with
where we are
The number one seed in the
Atlantic Region is Miami, followed
by IMCSU at number two, ECU at
three. South Florida at four. Cita-
del at five and Stetson at six.
There were mixed emotions
among the Pirate players on play-
ing in Florida.
"We're very happy with being
sent down to Florida, it's a great
place to play said Calvin Brown,
ECU first baseman.
"We're just a little disap-
pointed about .C State being

we're going to use that as a moti-

Pitcher Jonathan Jenkins had
mixed emotions about playing in
Florida. "We've been to Florida
twice before, and we haven't done
too well he laughed. "So hope-
fully we can fare a little better this
year. I think that this is the strong-

The Pirates will face the South
Florida Bulls on the opening day
of the tournament, and the scout-
ing report on them is sketchy at
this point.
"Our first report coming in on
South Florida is that they're very
much like us Overton said.
"South Florida is thought of in
their state much like we are in
North Carolina. By that, I mean
it's a team that has a good record
year in and year out, and gives
Miami, Florida State and Florida a
great deal of trouble. They plav
exceptionally well against those
teams, and usually win some of
the games. "
South Florida posted a 41-22
record in the Sun Belt Conference
this season and swept their con-
ference championship with four
consecutive wins. Their leading
hitter is Joe Lis, who batted .360
over the season, with 77 hits and
36 RBls.Threeof the Bulls'starters
are batted over .300 on the season.
On the mound, the Bulls have
a team average ERA of 3.21. The
two leading pitchers are David
Hutchesonand Winston Wheeler.
Hutcheson had a 2.05 ERA on a 3-
3 record. He recorded 47 strike-
outs and gave up 51 hits over 70.3

and a 5-4 record with three saves.
He recorded 45 strike-outs and

First Lady latches onto new cause
Tut Amalgamatf.d Press
Since her husband took office,
Barbara Bush has been searching for a
cause that would define her as the
anti-drug crusade defined Nancy
Reagan. Mrs. Bush's original effort, a
pro-literacy campaign, stalled when
aides pointed out to her that if people
read more, they'd start thinking, and
if they started thinking, her husband
wouldn't get re-elected, and if her
husband didn't get re-elected, every-
body would give up on the idea that
she was a charming and pleasant
middle-aged woman and go back to
thinking that she was just another old
broad with an unexplained affinity
for fake pearls.
And so it was that at a jam-packed
press conference yesterday, First Lady
Barbara "Babs" Bush announced a
new moral crusade: fighting conti-
nental drift.
"The continental drift problem is
a plague that is sweeping our nation
Mrs. Bush stated forcefully. "The
continents of the world are migrating
towards each other, and ifs time we
all stood up and moved this country
backwards � inch by inch, block by
"All right-thinking Americans
must band together to stamp out this
terrible scourge she continued. "For
too long, we have complacently al-
lowed our great nation to drift to-
wards more unsavory countries like
Russia. Whoops, Russia'sour pal now.
Well, unsavory countries like China,
"Clearly, this cannot be allowed
to continue. Every person in America
must rise up and help move our coun-
try back in the opposite direction. If
you're not part of the solution, you're
part of the problem. Remember: when
someone offers you drift, just say
Mrs. Bush also called on employ-
ers to test their employees for drift
abuse. Shecontended that such "drift-
ers as she called them, were the real
reason America was losing its com-
meaningless statistics that shape our campus

At a press conference this morning, President Bush shows reporters
how far the North American continent has drifted in this century alone.
petitiveedge. "Some would have you
believe that this (decreasing competi-
tive ability) is not due to continental
drift at all, but rather is a by-product
of this country's sorry excuse for an
educational system, its tolerance of
scientific illiteracy, or its tax laws that
effectively promote doing research
and development overseas Mrs.
Bush said. "Well, they're only saying
that because they're drifters and
they're anti-American
Reaction to Mrs. Bush's message
was immediate and overwhelmingly
positive. Citing the need to have one
person directing the country's drift
policy, President Bush created the
cabinet-level post of "Drift Czar In
addition, the president signed a tough
new "zero-tolerance" anti-drift law.
Under the law, anyone remotely sus-
pected of moving the continent even a
nanometer in any direction will be
immediately killed. Later, a trial may
or may not be held.
The movie and television indus-
tries also rallied to Mrs. Bush's side, as
big-name stars like Kirk Cameron
taped hundreds of anti-drift public
service announcements. One of the
more creativeanti-drift efforts tocome
from the entertainment world isa half-
hour animated show called Cartoon
All Stars jump On The Bandwagon. The
show, starring that beloved wascally
wabbit Bugs Bunny and many other
cartoon creatures trusted and admired
by impressionable children, seeks to
impress upon youngsters the impor-
tance of spying and ratting on par-
ents, friends and neighbors who en-
gage in drifting or other politically
unpopular behavior.
"We don't really care whether
children grasp the subtleties of this
complex issue, whether they are led
to weigh the individual's right to act
freely � even self-dcstructively �
against society's right to protect itself
from lawless and violent behavior
said Annie Thingforabuck, the
program's director. "We just want
them to get the message that drifting
is wrong
Several anti-drift groups are also
using television to warn kids about
the dangers of drifting. One grim
commercial, produced by Partnership
for a Stationary America, goes like
this: a man holds up an egg and says,
"This is your country Then he waves
a frying pan around and says, "This is
drifting Then he puts the egg in the
frying pan and wavesthe pan around,
causing the egg to fly off and smack
against the wall, as he says: "This is
your country drifting. Any ques-

to cut it out.
I mean, Jeez. Why the heck
should we let them fags get away

they're consenting adults? So what
if they don't hurt others? The point
is that what they do is something I
find personally offensive, so they
should have to cut it out.

does it matter to you what those
queers do behind closed doors?"
Why does it matter to me? Why
does it matter to me? Because it gets
me all nervous and jumpy, and just
not the kinda guy you'd want to
work with, that's why. And I get all
nervous and jumpy because I don't

VOICES Was Senator Helms right to fight against the AIDS bill because it "subsidized homosexuality"?
Q. Pid, 32
Greenville, NC
Absolutely not! Senator Helms
shottU have fought against the bill
because most of the money it pro-
vided would go to helping babies bom
with AIDS. I'm sick to death of help-
ing babies do this, helping them do
that if they get a disease, they should
fight it off, not come whining to the
federal government for money.
R. Ucoming, 32
Grifton, NC
I think that people afflicted with
homosexuality can learn to overcome
their condition. And I think that they
should be encouraged to seek help for
the homosexuality disease. And if a
side effect of that is condemning to
death babies who simply had the mis-
fortune to be born with AIDS, well,
thafs life. Or death. Whatever.

Jesse Helms has sent a message to
all who would engage in homosexual
behavior. What that message is, I have
no idea,but it'sa message. And I think
that the message should be sent, be-
cause, you know, homosexuals don't
get a lot of mail. Except for all those re-

Dead people sick of discrimination
The Amalgamated Press
Dead people are often excluded
from jobs, restaurants, and other so-
cial situations. And the late Barry L.
Place is fighting mad about it.
"We've been discriminated
against long enough screamed Place,
addressing a crowd of about 3000
corpses arrayed in New York's Cen-
tral Park Tuesday. "Do you realize
that a deceased person in this country
can't even own property? As soon as
the government finds out a person
has passed away, it moves in and lays
claim to everything he ever owned
Place pointed out that dead people
have been discriminated against for
at least as long as humans have kept
records on the subject. Specifically, he
complained that dead people are
nearly always burned or buried in the
ground, fates that rarely befall the
living. "And does the government
intercede in our behalf?" he asked.
Place demanded that the govern-
ment address the situation immedi-
ately. He called for legally mandated
hiring quotas to give the dead equal
representation in the workplace and
said that colleges should hire more
dead professors.
"The lack of non-living profes-
sors causes two problems Place said.
"First, the college provides inadequate
diversity of viewpoints, so living stu-
dents are not exposed to the unique
blend of insights that a non-living
professor could offer. Second, de-
ceased studentsarediscouraged from
completing their educations. Did you
know that not a single deceased stu-
dent graduated from an accredited
college last year?"
Place went on to say that broad-
casters should "give corpses equal
time to respond to on-air comments
that portray the deceased in a nega-
tive light and perpetuate outdated
stereotypes about us
But the primary focus of Place's
proposed reform is on changing the
words used to refer to the dearly
"We've been called 'stiffs 'ca-
davers 'carcasses' and, worst of
all, 'dead We're not 'dead Place
insisted as the crowd cheered, "we're
'living disabled
In a private interview after the
rally, Place and his kindly adviser
"Maw" Zoleum discussed the nomen-
clature issue at greater length.
"Our first priority is to institute
an entirely new set of euphemisms to
refer to the departed explained
Zoleum. "And every ten years or so,
we'll make a big stink and insist that
the euphemism be changed again. As
soon as people start to notice what a
dumb term 'living disabled' is, for
example, we'll change it to 'living
challenged That way, it looks like
we're doing something worthwhile
Place's remarks were praised by
most observers � including politi-
cians, already competing for the all-
important "dead vote" in the 1992
elections. But not all commentators
were quite so overwhelmed by Place's
arguments. Dr. Dee Tractor, of ECU'S
