Chartered on March 8,1907 as
East Carolina Teachers Training
School, ECU has grown to become
the third largest university in the
state of North Carolina.
The past 82 years have held
much change for this university.
The book titled "East Carolina
University: The Formative Years,
1907-1982" by Mary o Jackson
Bratton chronicles the early his-
tory of the university and was
officially commissioned by former
Chancellor Thomas B. Brewer.
Bratton is a professor of history
here at ECU.
The book divides the history
of ECU into four major segments,
according to the four different
names the school has held over the
During the earliest period,
from 1907-1921, the college was
known as East Carolina Teachers
Training School. According to
Bratton, former governor and
Confederate Army Capt Thomas
Jordan arvis, for whom Jarvis
dormitory was later named, was
the father of ECU. jarvis was "the
state's most prestigious elder
statesman" at the time, and played
a large part in getting the school
started from the legislation to
choosing the kitchen utensils.
The first classes were held on
October 5,1909 in a small, wooden
three-room structure known as
"The little Red Cabin " The first
two-year degrees were awarded
to students on June 8,1911.
In W21. last Carolina was
authorized by the state to award
B.A. degrees, changing the name
to EastCarolina Toacher'sCollege.
ECTC awarded its first B.A. de-
grees in August. 1922. In 1929,
ECTC became M A degree author-
ized and in bMl it became B.S.
degree authorized
ECTC became East Carolina
College in 1951.Throughout this
time, ECC grew to become the third
largest college in the state.
During the late 1960" East
Carolina College began to push
for university statusfromthestate.
During this time, the School of
Business was formed, and the
Sch(ol oi Education was moved
along with the department of
psychology to Speight. It was also
during this time that the idea for a
new medical school was brought
up, an idea for which ECC's then-

In 17, ECC gained univer-
sity status and became East Caro-
lina University. In 1972, ECU be-
came a constituent university of
the University of North Carolina,
and a four-year School of Medi-
cine was established in 1974. The
first M.D. degree was conferred in
1982, the same year the Brody

abusers has shown to be the most

General Assembly's passage of a
1989 amendment to the Domestic
Violence Statute states that vic-
tims no longer need a lawyer in
order to secure a restraining or
protective order from the courts.
Before the amendment, many vic-
tims found themselves trapped
because they were financially-
dependent upon their abuser and
could not afford a lawyer.
On the average, a victim usu-
ally leaves her abuser 11 times
before the decision is made to end
the relationship. These victims
usually seek refuge in crisis inter-
vention shelters. Henson, who has
worked with battered women for
eight years, said there areapproxi-
mately 58 shelters in North Caro-

tions, based in Greenville (752-
The focus of these shelters is
two-fold, according to Henson:
safety and making choices. First,
the shelter is a haven trom the
abuse, tension, mental confusion
and ambivalence oi an abusive
relationship. Second, the shelter
offers the victim a chance to re-
group and make rational choices.
The shelters also trv to instill a
sense of independence and power
to the victims through programs
on legal assistance, job skills,
employment, budgeting and com-
munity resources. "We try to show
them that violence is not their
fault Henson said. "And we try
to show them that they do have the
resources in them to live a vio-
lence-free life.

change as more sophisticated stud-
ios are carried out.
On May 8, 1 WO, the New York
Time' health columnist JaneBrody
wrote an extensive article on "The
China Health Project a study of
the health and life-stvle habits of
6300 Chinese people living in
China. The studv was master-
minded by Cornell University's T.
Colin Campbell, a nutritional bio-
chemist widely known tor his
research on cancer and heart dis-
ease. The studv showed, once
again, that a plant-based eating
plan is likelv to dramatically re-
duce the risk of various deadly
cancers, heart disease, diabetes,
osteoporosis, and other "diseases
of affluence as Campbell calls
them. The studv also confirmed a
previous National Academy of
Sciences report indicating that tat
intakes should be reduced by
about half the current level (about
20 of the diet). For most Ameri-
cans, this means cutting all rod
moats ancl dairy products from

saying this has nothing to do with
the evolutionary record, with in-
testinal length, or the design of
our teeth�all of which have been
used to rationalize vegetarianism.
Instead, Campbell's perspective
has been moulded by a large body
oi research findings made bv his
and other labs for the past 20years
and bv his own interpretation of
the research.
"When wo liHik.U all the things
in food can prevent us from
getting cancer, tho protective fac-
torsallinvanablvcome from plant
materials Campbell told me re-
cently. More oi these things are
being discovered every day. And
if you study any one of these
things, such as beta carotene or
the various plant proteins, and
start asking how it works, what is
the mechanism, then vou begin to
find that there are an extraordi-
nary, virtually infinite, number of
mechanisms involved
Campbell then posed the
question: How in tho world did
we ever get hero1 How did we
develop so many protective
mechanisms that depend on the
consumption oi plant materials?
"We had l have boon constantly
exposed to those materials
throughout our evolution he
says. "For critical periodsorproba-
bly most of our evolution, we must
have boon mainly a vegetarian
species. There's simply no other
way to explain it. Otherwise, na-
ture would not have had the op-
portunity to lav down all these
mechanisms tor us. 1 discussed
this with one of the leading an-
thropologists in the country and
he basically conceded that this was
quite plausible
When I asked Campbell
whether ho thought tho studv.
would have much impact, ho
admitted that he had until re-
cently, been highlv pessimistic
about Americans' capacity to
change. Since then he has talked
to many people and is "more
impressed and optimistic that the
consumer is more in tune with
this idea of healthy life change

to change. They say, "I've been
doing this all my life, so why
should l change?" Campbell's
response would be to give your
body time to adjust to the new
"If the typical American
switched to a low-fat, low-salt,
low-sugar type diet, they'd obvi-
ously find i' be bland and unac-
ceptable, and they'd go back to
eating what thevalwayseatsavs
Campbell. But if people cat a
simple, plant-based diet for sev-
eral months on the average, their
tastes begin to change, they dis-
cover new flavors, and they begin
to like the diet The subtle flavors
of grains and vegetables tend to
become diminished by salt, sugar,
and fat. Salt and sugar are easier to
cut than fat, which can takea year
or longer. Recent studies show that
one's "ehemosensory sensitivity"
toward tood may indeed varv in
response to previous dietary prac-
tice. These of foots involve not onlv
changes in the tastebuds, but also
the liver, fatty tissues, stomach
and intestines.
It people are more aware of
what is required to make the
change, and how addicted their
bodies v an become to certain die-
tary patterns then they may very
well begin to make the change
Again, however, there's so much
diffuse information on diet and
specific nutrients that people oas-
ilv got confused and over-
whel mod. Ca mpbell prefers to sa v
simply, Fat mostly plant foods
Ho believes this whole foods
approach is so much more tan-
giMeand accessible to people. "Its
a message they can trulv under-
stand. Of course, what vou hap-
pen to like in the way ol plant
foods is going to differ from what
1 may like, and that's fine But it
still gives them a lot of choice
The fact that food is such a
personal issue may be one reason
a major paradigm shift hasn't yet
happened. Biases affect scientists
too. "Thescienbfic community, the
people who operate within the
scientific profession, happen to be
human beings says Campbell.
"Thev have prettv much the same
biases toward foodl that every-
one else has. They like to think
that they're more rational, and I
can assure you that this is not true.
In fact, in some instances they're
less rational than, sav, someone
who knows not so much . We can
learn from the Chinese bv seeing
how the whole way of lite, how-
ever simple, is promoting their
Much of the public informa-
tion on diet, Campbell vivs, is
sponsored bv the meat and dairy
industries, which annually spend
vast amounts of money on adver-
tising and education, including
pamphlets, booklets, and fivers
into school programs. The tobacco
industry probably spends more
than both of those combined.
Public thinking has been clearly
shaped by this advertising blitz
Campbell savs that even scientists
get caught up in the mass brain-
washing effect. These authorities
become, in Campbell's words,
"afraid to be bold and come right
outand say what they really think.
In some cast's thev won't do the

The Agricultural Extension

the high nitrate level is caused by

Fhe end of the spring semes-
ter stirs the ECU police force
into a panic. They prowl and
cower, lurking in dark recesses
of parking lots to pounce upon
unsuspecting vehicles with driv-
ers who are late for classes. A
complete lack of students dur-
ing the summer months would
render this fine police force fi-
nancially devastated.
My second suspect is the fac-
ulty. Not all of them, )iist the
type who assign ten-page term
papers on Friday to be due the
following Monday. Thev are
demented individuals who
thriveonthesufferingsand pains
of students. When students ask
for extensions on projects or
delayed test dates, these profes-
sors cackle with glee and move
deadlines up instead of back
saving, "Well kiddies, this is
what real life is all about
Mv final suspect is the body
of university administrators as a
whole. To single out any indi-
vidual would deprive him or her
of the glory that is due Thus, I
credit them all. Those adminis-
trators are the ones who deter-
mine how many credits we must
accumulate to obtain a diploma
from this institution of higher
Surely they could see that a
normal education in college
takes 4 years to earn. Yet they
have ordained a system oi keep-
ing students here at ECU work-
ing for their undergraduate
degrees for 5, 6, 7 and 8 years.
Thev want students to come
back year after year, semester af-
ter semester, and decade after
decade to earn those 1,296 cred-
its necessary for the dawning of
a square hat and a si 11 black
Whv would thev want to
keep us here? The answer is
simple � TUITION. Our atten-
dance and our tuition keeps them
employed. If there were no stu-
dents, there would be no univer-
sity. If there were no university,
there would be no administra-
If students were not in school
during the summer months, they
would not need to be here. If
thev were not working, they
probably wouldn't get paid.
Thus continues my tribute
to the bravest of all in the realm
of education, the summer school
You come to school to at-
tend classes every day. There is
no time to catch up on real life
between class days. No time is
given to complete assignments
outside of class. Classes are
scheduled back to back.
To complete homework or
to study, you. the student, must
sacrifice sleep and nourishment
to stay up-to-date with readings
and notes.
Classes last forever Long
gone are the days of one hour
classes. During summer school,
students are forced to listen to
the endless, mindless recitals of
facts and figures. Yet, students
bear all. They suffer and sur-
vive. They persevere and endure.
Hail to the student, brave yet
exhausted, intelligent yet virtu-
ally brain dead.
And Hail to the institution
which brings us one day closer
to admission into an institution.

USA loses to Czechoslovakia
5-1 in first game of World Cup
R( All (AP It was an ugly
performance by the United 'states.
nearly as ugly as the clashes be-
tween tans and police in two Ital-
ian cities.
The soccer has been superb,
tor the most part, with West ler-
many putting on the best display
Sunday, rhe Germans, one ol the
favorites tor tie World Cup,
routed Yugoslav ia 4-1.
The Americans, probablv the
biggest longshot in the tourna-
ment, made their first World Cup
game in 40 years a forgettable one
with a 5-1 loss to Czechoslovakia.
It could have been worse.
The worst performances of the
dav, however, were made by the
English-speaking fans in Cagliari,
on the island of Sardinia, and the
German tans who confronted
police in Milan.
Late Sunday night, on the eve
ot the England-Ireland game,
English-speaking fans were eon-
fronted by police in Cagliari after
a woman was hit on the head by a
thrown bottle. Riot police wield-
ing batons waded into the crowd,
and at least three young men were
taken away in police cars.
Fans ot both teams packed
bars, ordering beers before a
midnight ban on the sale ot alco-
holic beverages ttxk effect.
()n Friday, street violence led
to the arrest of 14 English tans
In Milan, at least seven people
were injured and 20 were taken
into custody, police said.
Croups of fans, apparently
drunk despite a ban on alcohol
sales, smashed windows oi shops
.m cars along the street. Hun-
dreds of not police rushed to the
area after reports of confrontations
between West Germans and Yu-
Tolice then clashed with the
row dies near Milan's well-known
Duomo cathedral square.

Krzyzewski turns down position with
Celtics, decides to stay with Duke
DURHAM, N.C (AP) � Af-
ter a week vi talks with head offi-
cials of the Boston Celtics, Duke
basketbailcoach Mike Krzyzewski
said he had turned down the NBA
coaching ob
"I have withdrawn my name
from consideration for the Boston
Celtics coaching position
Krzyzewski said in a two para-
graph statement released this
morning through the school's
sports information department.
"I appreciate the opportunity
to talk to the Celtics about the job
and I appreciate Duke University
allowing me to do so. I have made
the decision to remain at Duke
Krzyzewski planned no news
conference, the school said.
A power struggle between
Boston president Red Auerbach
and Dave Gavitt, the team's new
director of basketball operations,
played a significant role in
Krzyzewski's decision, a source
close to the Celtics told The News
athl Obsciver of Raleigh.
Gavitt, hired by the Celtics
less than two weeks ago, wanted
Krzyzewski for the job. But Auer-
bach, the most successful coach in
NBA history, vigorously opposed
plans to hire a coach with no pro-
fessional playing or coaching
"That is stupid Auerbach
said today in reference to the
power struggle. "It just shows the
stupiditv of some reporters. It's
absolutely stupid. There is no
credence to it at all.
"What we did was go into a
lengthy discussion about the job,
what it entailed, so on and so
forth Auerbach said. "We never
got down to the nitty gritty. He
(Krzyzewski) said he was going
back to think about it. And if he
had the interest, we were inter-
Krzyzewski, Duke'scoach for
the past 10 years, informed the
Celtics and Duke athletics direc-
tor Tom Butters of his decision
before noon Thursday.
Krzyzewski met for most of
Wednesday with Auerbach in
Washington and left the talks
convinced that he could not ac-
cept a job offer from Gavitt.
Auerbach balked at Gavitt's
desire to hire Krzyzewski and
most of the Celtics players, par-
ticularly those who have been with
the franchise for more than a dec-
ade, favor the hiring of assistant
Chris Ford as Boston's new coach.
With Krzyzewski out of the
picture, Ford becomes the leading
candidate for the top job.
"Dave's been hung out to dry
his first time out of the box an
NBA source told the newspaper.
"There's loose footing every-
where. Don't be surprised if he
(Gavitt) resigns. He's been lied to
in a big way

In ls8�, Overtoil's fifth year
as head coach, the baseball team
won its second CAA champion-
ship in three years. Along with the
37 wins, ECU set another team
season record witha 15-game win-
ning streak. Overtoil's pitching
staff also finished third in the
nation with a 2.98 earned run
During the 1990 campaign,
Overton coached the Pirates to a
brilliant 47-9 overall record and
another CAA crown to go along
with it. Winning back-to-back
CAA championships was
Overtoil's proudest moment dur-
ing his six vears at FCU.

ished the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence with eight wins in 10 games.
If the ACC has ever gained the
respect for the ECU baseball pro-
gram, it was this season.
"The ACC, for many years,
has respected the ECU program
Overton said. "After this season,
there is more respect
In fact, Ovcrton said that
NCAA announced the ACC was
the second toughest baseball con-
ference in the country. And beat-
ing those teams (Duke, Virginia,
North Carolina State and Univer-
sity of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill), reflects the quality of the
ECU baseball program.
Overtoil's two losses against
the ACC occured when the Vir-
ginia Cavaliers topped the Pirates
9-6 in Virginia. The second loss
came against the Wolfpack in the
NCAA tournament, which ended
ECU'S hopes of advancing to the
1990 College World Series.
"It was very disappointing
because we didn't come to play
Ovcrton said. "A great baseball
season had ended for us
Although the ACC may beone
of the top programs in the nation,
Overton has no plans to coach in
the conference.
"It would take a very attrac-
tive package from the ACC to lure
me away from ECU, " Overton
said. "Thereisoneimportant thing
I have here at ECU � loyalty
Not only was Overton's team
successful against the ACC, the
ECU baseball squad pounded all
teams in the CAA. During the
season, the Pirates recorded an
impressive 11 -2 record in theCAA.
The two losses came against the
George Mason Patriots and the
University of North Carolina at
Wilmington Scahawks. Against
the Patriots, the Pirates lost a heart-
breaking 5-4 defeat at home in the
ninth inning. The only Seahawk
victory against ECU was a 7-3 win
at Wilmington against starting
pitcher John White.
After the regular season,
Overtoil led his team to the CAA
crown with victoriesover William
and Mary, James Madison and
George Mason.

The Blazers stole the home-
court advantage with a 106-105
overtime win Thursday night in
Auburn Hills, Mich Detroit hadn't
won in Portland since Oct. 19,1974,
and the Blazers were 9-0 at home
in the plavoffs. They hoped to win
their first title since 1977 without
heading back East.
Now, if they don't return to
Detroit, they'll lose the scries.
"If you're ever going to break
a 17-year streak, or whatever it is,
his is the place and time to do it
Detroit coach Chuck Daly said.
"We were in a precarious situ-
ation, but now we've got a chance
to go back home and win
"We really wanted this game
because we hadn't lost any at
home, but we didn't assert our-
selves on the defensive end
Kersey said. "You can't afford not
to get something out of your of-
fensive possessions, especially if
you can't get it done defensively
Trailing 22-16, the Pistons
went on a 15-3 rim that made the
score 31-25 with 29 seconds left in
the first quarter. The closest the
Blazers came after that was three
points. They trailed 58-51 at
halftime and never came closer
than seven after that.
Dumars made sure of that. He
had 13 points in the third quarter,
on two 3-pointers and seven free
throws, as Detroit took a 90 82
lead into the fourth
The Blazers missed their first
five shots and turned theballover
three times in the first 330 of the
fourth quarter, enabling the Pis-
tons to start the period with an ft-
0 run for a 98-82 lead. The closest
Portland got after that was 109-98
with 3:15 left.
"From the very beginning, we
did not come out with enough
enthusiasm Drexler said
Without Rodman, the Pistons
played an even more physical style
than normal That drew com-
plaints from the Blazers, who were
called for 38 fouls to 2r for Detroit.

"I t'sreallv non-controversial
he said.
One topic Coin said won't be
discussed, formally anyway, are
the rampant reports of conference
expansion. A recent report by the

member of the Metro basketball
conference � has been invited to
join the Southeastern Conference.
The report also said Arkan-
