"that's not fair and not smart for
American interest
With the crumbling of the
of democracy in Eastern Europe,
McGovem said the most focal point
of U .S. policy in the last 40 years - the
Cold War - is no longer a threat to
American well-being and in turn the
emphasis should now be placed on
the Middle East.
"World War III could take place

ing quarrel McGovern said.
While he concedes it would take
political maneuvering around the
powerful Israel lobby, McGovern

alluded to the fact that half of the

Of the up coming showdown

Since 1989, North Carolina's
universities have been experienc-
ing a decline in the applicant pool,
and although ECU is also feeling
the effects of these cuts in appli-
cants, the admissions standards
will still continue to become more
During the past couple of
years, applicants for ECU have
been facing a rise in the academic
standards for admission, and this
climb is predicted to continue into
The basis for this stricter selec-
tion is found through a projection
formula used to achieve a better
idea of how a student may do his
or her freshman year. The factors
of this formula are the student's
GPA (Grade Point Average) and
SAT (Scholastic Achievement Test)
score. Although it is not used in
the formula, class rank is also sig-
nificant in the consideration of the
For 1990, the minimum GPA
for an applicant is a 2.0, and the
minimum SAT score is a 700.
However, a student cannot have
both of these scores combined in
order to be accepted to ECU. If the
applicant's GPA is a 2.0, they must
have a 900 minimum on their SAT
in order to be accepted. Students
with a 700 on their SAT must in
turn have a 2.5 GPA. In addition, a
fifty point rise in the minimum
SAT score is being considered for
These figures are based on the
projection formula for the
student's progress analysis. This
formula helps the admissions
board to estimate how a student
might do his or her freshman year.
Currently, this formula is being
revised as a result of a validity
Dr. Thomas E. Powell, direc-
tor of admissions, feels that there
will not be a decline in the number
of applicants as a result ol these
changes. In fact, he predicts the
opposite and finds these new stan-
dards to be more attractive tor
"Historically, as admissions
standards go up for a school, the
demand for the institutions usu-
ally goes up along with it said
Dr. Powell. "The more selective
schools have the most people
trying to get into them
There has been a decline in the
applicant pool for all of North
Carolina's state schools in recent
years due to a decline in the num-
ber of college-age students. This
decline is the result of lower birth
rates since the baby boom.
Graduates from public high
schools in North Carolina peaked
in 1989, when it reached a high of
approximately 72,000 students.
This statistic is expected to con-
tinuc downward until 1994, when
it will reach a lo wot approximately
58,000 high school graduates.
Last year alone, ECU experi-
enced a decrease in applications
ranging around 1,100. Dr. Powell
feels that this continued decline
will be the result of the fewer high
school graduates only, not because

ECU to host fourth annual Summer
Institute for Teachers of the Gifted
School programs for academically gifted students fail to meet the
needs of some very bright children who are not easily identified or

Often these children are handicapped, learning-disabled, very
young or from minority cultures or ethnic groups.
These "special gifted pupils" will be the focus of "Casting a Wide

upon President Bush to expand

states of the Mid-Atlantic areas
President Bush announced
lune 26 that he would place large
areas of the U.S. coastline off-lim-
its to federal offshore oil and gas
lease sales until the end ot the
decade. The Bush moratorium
announcement included addi-
tional areas off Florida and Cali-

Oregon, Washington and New
England. The only areas left open
toleasingareintheGulf of Mexico
and the Atlantic coast.
Chairman Jones, whose Com-

President Bush:
"Dear Mr. President:
The citizens of Horida and
California have been waiting for
many months for the announce-

lines that will last throughout the
remainder of this decade. I am
sure they were pleased by our

zens of Oregon and New England

cluded in the moratorium.
Given the inclusion of areas
tha t we had believed were beyond
the scope of the Task Force's rec-
ommendations, I am equally sure
that the citizens of the Atlantic
seaboard were disheartened to
find that leasing is still a possibil-

In a remote valley of Mexico
this spring, ECU students and
professors buil t durable, low-cost
houses ti replace cactus huts for
poverty-stricken peasants.
The project waspartof a new
workstudy course in construc-
tion management offered
through ECU's School of Indus-
try and Technology.
Eight students from the De-
partment of Construction Man-
agement and from the Department
of Geography and Planning were
enrolled in the course to study third
world building problems and to
learn about the geography and cul-
ture of Mexico.
The group spent 11 days in
central Mexico living among the
Oteme people of the Mezquital Val-
ley. VVorkingatseveral sites, the stu-
dents helped local families construct
homes of cinder block and mortar.
The houses, although simple, are
stronger and more durable than the
cactus huts they replaced.
Mexican families buy the new
houses at low cost wi th no interest
government loans.
"This program was an excel-
lent opportunity for our graduate
students to learn housing technol-
ogy by actually doing it said
Thomas C. Shleifer, a lecturer in
the School of Industry and Tech-
nology, who developed the course.
"We lived in the village and
worked alongside the people who
acutally live in the houses we built.

American youth are being
bombarded with images about the
Arab world and most of these im-
ages are false, a group oi public
school teachers was told in a semi-
nar on the ECU campus last week.
Tirst impressions (about Arab
people) have the potential to turn
i nto hardset prejudices said Joseph
Webb, the social studies coordina-
tor for the Southeast Regional Edu-
cation Center in Jacksonville. Webb
spoke at the opening of a two-dav

Islam: Teaching Priorities and
Techniques" at ECU.
The conference is sponsored
by the .C. Department of Public
lnstmction, the N.C. Committee
on American-Arab Affairs Coun-
cil and the ECU Office of Interna-
tional Studies. About 60 teachers
attended the opening session.
"Our duty is to focus on this
important area of the world and to
create a constructive and positive
world view Webb said, he said
that the purpose for the two-dav
meeting was the to increase inter-
national understanding of Arabs
and Islam.
A number of Arab world ex-
perts served as speakers for the
"Public attention has shifted
awav from the Arab world over
the last year said Dr. Jerry
Pubantz, a professor oi political
science at Salem College in Win-
ston-Salem, North Carolina. He
said the 21 Arab countries repre-
sent "a critical part of the world for
all of us as well as for students
"It is a part of the world in
which we are woefully uni-
formed Pubantz said.
Other speakers Thursday in-
cluded Dr. Hala Maksoud, a lec-
turer and author. Dr. Aida Bamia,

The number of students in
the Arab countries has increased
from five top30 million since 1950
said Dr. Maksoud. She said the
number of universities have in-
creased for eight to 82 in the last 40
She explained that much of
the conflict among the Arab coun-
tries was created by Britain and
France when the Arab countries
were colonized and divided. She
said this division created much of
the disunity that exists today.
"We want to feel we have a
great civilization but we do not
feel we have to develop Western
attitudes to do this Maksoud
said.She said Americans "need to
unlearn a great deal of what has
been taught
Dr. Aida Ramia compared
Arab society to a "well-formed
pyramid" with a strong founda-
tion. She said religion is the center
of people's lives and also plays an
important role in the political life
of the countries. She said an un-
derstandingof the religion (Islam)

with anticipation behind my chaotic driving. The flat

green and white sign "Entering I'm" appeared and
the road turned into a smooth black ribbon As the

chorus of Kb .Ms Don t Go Back To Rockville"
blasted trom the shot speakers of the old A.C Delco

Upon seeing Bs Barbecue on Highway 43, the
realization hit me: back to Greenville 1 had come
again. The reinitiation lacked ceremonial splendor
as 1 waved to the inseparable twins whom inces-
santly walk up and down 10th Street wearing their
identical spectacles and stme-sized brogans. As I
showed Ed and Jed mv palm, the loquacious twin

was that man with the U-haul-it?"
The walking brothers; the coffee regulars at

all greeted me on mv return like 1 had never left. To
borrow from an Eagles' lyric, Greenville is a place
where vou can check out, but never leave.
So here this strange odyssey of living, lovingand
loathing in the citv by the Tar continues. After going
through long stages of denial, I have succumbed to
my dcstinv and become for a time at peace with the
decision to comeback after a year's absence.
Old friends - some who have faced similar fate -

the face of communism and the

create that change, and as we cele-

for lasting peace.
As the perceived threat of
Communism diminishes, manv
are calling for slashes in military
spending. "One Percent for Peace
takes that call one step further.
"Defense cuts, though cer-
tainly important, merely offer a
scaled-down version of the global

"With a positive peace

"One Percent for Peace" goes
toward lobbying Congress for the
budget allotment, and the rest

Schwartzbach says people-to-

low income housing in Massachu-
setts, replanting the rain forest in
Costa Rica or sponsoring student
exchange visits with the Soviet

men who worked in underground

people who would turn the keys
and push the launch buttons.
As a rule military personnel
tend to be extremely suspicious of
journalists, but when I met Dave,
the captain of one crew, I saw a
softening in his eyes. 1 wanted to
interview these people outside
their work station, meet their
families and talk about nuclear
war and peace from a personal
point of view, without a military
public relations officer present.
I asked Dave if he would let
me interview his familv, and to
the public relations officer's sur-
prise, Dave agreed. When 1

why. Dave's wife Kim was Ko-

to increase
RALEIGH (AP) The auto
insurance industry has requested
an increase in rates an increase
that would SCC main North Caro-
lina drivers paying as much as 9.6
percent more in premiums.
The N.C. Kale Bureau �
which represents the insurance
industry � filed the request late
1 nday afternoon, citing increases
in the costs of medical care and
auto repairs.
If approved, the increase
would allow insurance companies
to collect an additional $125 mil-
lion a year in premiums from
North Carolina motorists, the in-
surance department said.
The department depicted the
request asexcessive. The Newand
I Htstnxrot Raleigh reported.
The price rf insurance varies
greatly from driver to driver and
depends on factors such as driv-
ing record and the type of car in-
sured. But the Rate Bureau said
motorists who buv minimum-lia-
bility coverage and physical-
damage coverage � collision and
comprehensive � would face an
average increase of 4.9 percent.
Above those basic levels, the
request would raise rates an aver-
age of 9.6 percent, the insurance
department said.
"An increase of nearly 10
percent would have a severe
impact pecially those
of middleincomes, many of whom
buv the increased coverages said
Roger Langley, a senior deputy
insurance commissioner.
Insurance Commissioner
James Long has rejected rate in-
creases each of the last three years
and ordered rate reductions. The
Rate Bureau has appealed those
rulings,and thecasesare pending
in the courts.

Although there are several
important motions already pend-
ing, none were called at the bnet
hearing. District Attorney Warren
Sparrow s,ud it now appears that
the cases could take tour weeks to
try because prosecutors could call
as manv as 7 witnesses and the
defense may call another 23.
Sparrow s.ud that prosecutors
need additional time to perform
tests on a letter signed by Gravin
Ihomas of Burlington that pur-
ports to be a death-bed confession
to the crimes. And Sparrow said
that the trial could probably not
be finished before judge William
Freeman is scheduled to begin an
important civil trial Aug. 27.
Freeman is to preside over the
trial of a lawsuit tiled by K&W
Cafeterias Inc. against Piedmont
Natural Gas Co. over the gas ex-
plosion that destroyed the K&W
on Stratford Road in Winston-
Salem in January 1988. Freeman
has been assigned to that case for
almost a year.
Freeman said Friday that he
expects the K&W tnal to take as
long as four weeks. He would need
a break after that trial before he
could start Mrs. Moore's case,
Freeman said, and he has a week
of vacation scheduled in October.

The state has 15 days to appeal the

at 50 percent off list, just before he
leaves to attend a manufacturer's
seminar on the evils of grav mar-

grav market mail-order house for
10 percent more than he paid.
The gray marketeer offers the
PCs to the public tor around 20
percent more than he paid. That
puts th price at about 25 percent
less suggested retail.
So with manufacturer, author-

Mover is a musician with 11 years of training.
Finding that he had an obsession with the guitar in

NEW YORK (AP) � Slang
may make English teachers cringe,
but it hasquiteadifferenteffecton
writer Paul Dickson.
Dickson say s that even though
slang's detractors believe it "per-
verts standard English, I believe
that slang enriches the language
1 le is the author of a number
of books on language, the latest of
which is Slang! The Topic-bv-
lopn. I )ictionaryot Contemporary
American Lingoes" (Pocket).
Dickson defines slang as
"language that thumbs its nose at
conventional English, one that
goes in the opposite direction.
It can be brutally frank or
funny he adds.
According to its publisher,
"Slang is the first book in half a
century to define slang terms ar-
ranged by subject. Among its 24
chapters are sections on sports,
law, automobiles and real estate,
as well as Pentagonese, bureau-
crateseand political slang.
Certain chapters can help
"outsiders" better understand the
language of such groups as teens,
yuppies and "chipheads" � that
is, computer people. And, even
though flower children pretty
much disappeared with the 1960s,
the chapter on the slang of the
counterculture reveals how much
of this group's language - in-
cluding "hang-up "hassle" and
"uptight" � has survived.
Of his "offbeat reference
book as Dickson calls it, the
author says. "It's for people who
are interested in worlds around

The film, a completion of the

and Bob Gale, is another step in

possibilities of science
Although the likelihood of
time travel is less than none, the
actorsand actresses involved bring
an unexpected authenticity to
"Back to the Future 111
Fox has an easier role in the
third film than in the second. In
the third film Fox only plays two
roles, Marty McFly of 1985 and his
Irish ancestor, Seamus McFly. In
the first film, he played one Marty
McFly(1985). In the sequel. Fox
played three Marty McFlys, Marty
McFly Junior (the son of the older
1985 Marty) and Marlene McFly
(the daughter of the older 1985
Marty). Adding to the confusion,
this film has two Martys of 1985
simultaneously trying to escape
Keeping with the family tra-
dition, Lea Thompson, who has
played Lorraine McFly in all three
films, is also back. In the third film
Thompson plays Lorraine (1985)
and Maggie McFly (1885), the wi fe
of Seamus McFly.
The villain's name changes
from Biff to Griff and back to Biff
in the first two films. However, in
Future III, Thomas F. Wilson por-
trays the source of the Tannen
family mean-streak playing
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen. The
villains, consistently played by
Wilson, give the audience charac-
ters to hate as they cheer for the
heros, Fox and Lloyd.
Having multiple characters
played bv a limited castol leading
actors is easier to watch than it is
to read about
Fox, as well as the other per-
formers developed each of the
characters as individuals with
their own voices, gestures and
mannerisms. The costumes and
make-up in Future III also make
the time travel less confusing for
the audience.
The 1885 portions oi Future
III were filmed about 350 miles
north of Los Angeles around
Sonora, California. The red dust
and open space of the desert,
impossible to duplicate in a stu-
dio, set an authentic stage of the
early town and built the founda-
tion of the Main Street seen in both
previous tilnis
The film begins with an over
lap from both Future I and 11 bring
mg the audience up to date. Doc-
tor Emmett Brown sends Marty to
1985. Seconds later, Marty rounds
a corner back from 1985, leaving
them where Future 11 ended.
Lead bv a letter and map de-
livered by Western Union, Marty
and Doctor Brown excavate the
DeLorean from a cave where it
has been hiding for 70 years. After
making minor repairs, Marty trav-
els to 1885 to save his friend.
In 1885, Marty finds a wise
relative with good advice, a De-
Lorean with an empty gas tank
and a Doc head over heels in love
with a school teacher.

believable portrayed multiple
characters, revealing more ot his
acting expertise. Lloyd broke into
a new facet oi his character's per-
sonality by becoming the "lead-
ing man" oi a heart-telt. tear-jerk-
ing romance.
Aside from a little harsh lan-
guage, this is an excellent produc-
tion fit for family audiences. The
entertainment qualities of Future
III carry on the tradition of the
trilogy with a strong but complex
plot, and the moral lessons con-
veyed are commendable.

Apparel of the '90s
may be dangerous
Health takes
over fashion
Theold saw about suffering in the
name of fashion has real signifi-
cance with today's styles, says Dr.
Leonard W. Morgan, assistant
professor of family medicine at
the University of Oklahoma
I iealth Sciences Center.
Waist-cinching belts, tight-
fitting leans and tight shirt collars
can cause or aggravate health
problems, he says. Bv far the worst
of fenders are shoes.
"People buv shoes for style.
not for comfort. Frequently the
shoes are too narrow, have inade-
quate cushioning in the soles, or
are ill-fitting. This can lead to
everything from tired feet, corns
and calluses to serious foot prob-
lems that require surgery
Close-fitting garments also
cause problems. "Tight clothes
interfere with blood circulation to
the skin. Too-tight shirt collarsand
ties can interfere somewhat with
blood flow to the brain. For people
who already have arteriosclero-
sis, which is impeded blood flow-
to the brain, tight collars and ties
can increase their risk of prob-
lems says Morgan. Similarly,
knee-high hose or tight socks can
contribute todevelopment of van-
cose veins, he adds.
Summer or winter, people
should try to protect themselves
from the sun. There is no such
thing asa'healthy'tan. The rays of
the sun are quite damaging, as the
rising incidence of skin cancer
proves he says. He thinks most
people make their worst clothing
mistakes in the summer; dark,
close-fitting clo thing traps warmth
and can contribute to heat stroke.
He advises people to choose light
colors in loose-fitting styles to al-
low airflow next to the skin.

In recent weeks, speculation

little league baseball is an

Little league commissioner, Dan
Gordon, "It teaches youngsters

Greenville little League has
eight teams in the Tarheel league,
eight teams in the North State
I eague and eight teams in the
minor leagues.
The North State league was
the first league started in Green-
ville, and then the Tarheel league
was added last year. Both of the
loagues are charted with the na-
tional program in Willamsport
Pennsylvania Gordon said.
"Sometimes you do have to sub-
mit the charter, you got to have
the constitution, a map of vour
area and pay a charter fee to the
national program If you charter
a league vou must also have a
minor league for that league. The
minor league is tor all the hildren
who are not picked tor the North
state or Tarheel league.

then thev are evaluated on things
like batting, catchingand running
The teams that have lost players
from the previous year then draft
the players they want. The last
place team from the previous vear
gets the first draft pick.
The Greenville Little I eague
divides the players into the Tar-
heel or North State League in a
unusual way. "We are probably
the only 1 i ttle league program that
d i v ides the players from on league
to another by there house num-
ber said commissioner Gordon
The league has a 13-player
roster and a mandatory player
rule, which states that it vou have
less than a 15-player roster, each
player must have six defensive
outs and one bat. A defensive out
is when you are in the field, an
offensive out is when you are at
The league also has a substi-
tution rule, which states, when
you put in a substitute, the subsb-
tute stays in for six defensive outs
and one bat. Then you can re-
insert a player from the original
line up back into the game.
"It used to be that the manag-
ers had the discrimination to play
who they wanted Gordon re-
membered. "In my opinion, as
much time as the managers put in
they should be allowed to play
who they want.
"Just like we use nine to t wel ve
year olds Gordon explained. "To
take a nine-year-old and put him
up against a twelve-year-old
pitcher is kind of lop-sided. It
might scare to boy so bad he might
never become a ball player
All boys and girls between
the ages of nine and twelve who
live within a six mile radius of
Greenville can try out for the
leagues. Each individual league
cannot draw from a area with a
population over a 20,000. "The
area we draw from said com-
missioner Gordon, "has a popula-
tion of about 40,000, so we have
two different leagues Children
outside this area can pay the
Greenville Recreational and Parks
Department, a non-residential fee
to become eligible to play. This
fee lasts for one vear.

ot April and ends on July 7th. Chil-
dren between 11 and 12 are picked

the District tournament will ad-

According to Gordon,
"Greenville I ittle League has won
the district and state tournaments
on several occasions. The Green-
ville Little League went to the
regional tournament in South
Florida in 1)70 and 1987. They
have come in second place in the
state tournament for the past two
Greenville Little League is a
parent supported organization.
Commissioner Gordon stated.
"Parents are urged to help by
working the concession stand, but
there are problems during inner
league plav because the mothers'
want to watch their children play
instead of working Finances
come from team sponsor, parents'
fees,donationsof money or equip-
ment, concession stands, and the
annual "Luncheon-Supper
"The Luncheon-Supper" said
the Commissioner, "is something
that started 20 to 30yearsago. It is
an annual affair to try to raise
money, because it is our main
source of income. We average
from 2,200 to 2,800 plates that we
fix in one day. This year, because
of the price of chicken last year,
we raised the price of tickets from
three dollars to four dollars
The little league players sell
tickets for their one fund raiser
and are rewarded with prizes for
the most tickets sold. The women's
auxiliary, who also handles the
concession stands, fixes the plates
and sends them to Film Street,
where the people ride bv and pick
up their plates.
Gordon has been commis-
sioner of the Greenville Little
League for 2b years. He was the
President of the Tarheel league in
11 and 12. Gordon remem-
bered, "At that time there was no
little league board, none of the
managers had anv say so in the
program. There was only a super-
visor and two league presidents.
"They asked me to run for
President of the Tarheel league
and 1 was President in 1961 and
1962 He went out of the pro-
gram for four years because his
sons graduated. When the pro-
gram went broke, Gordons'
friends asked him to help the
program get back on its feet.
Cordon said, "Several friends of
mine came and asked me to help
them out. I thought about it from
two weeks before I told them I
would help" Gordon has been
with the program ever since.
Gordon claimed, "I have
tried to resign twice, but no one
wants to take my job, because we
didn' t have anyone who knew eve-
rything to do and when to do it
His main jobs arc dealing with
parents, scheduling games, rec-
ommending coaches and manag-
ers for the Board of Directors ap-
proval, and gathering prices lor
The commissioner said he
decided to join the Little League
program because he "likes to help
kids He claimed that "you can
never do to much to help kids stay
off the streets and out of trouble
and all the effort the program
makes is well worth the trouble
The Greenville Recreaiion and
Parks Department helps by mark-
ing off the fields for the games,
cutting the grass and helping with
the cleaning and maintenance of
the fields. Gordon stated, "We do
not get any tax money from the
United Funds City of Greenville,
although the Recreational Com-
mission that is in charge of the
recreational department is com-
mitted to the League. They helped
build the new Perkins Complex.
That has two fields
Over the past 25 years there
have been many students and
faculty from ECU who have
helped with the Little League
program. Most of those who have
helped out have been coaches,
managers or umpires.
ECU's former baseball coach,
George Williams, has helped the
program. Dr. Jimmy Grimsly, with
the Athletic Department, also has
give some of his time. Pat Biz-
zarre of the English Department,
is a manager at this time. Gordon
remembers, "Pat got upset with
one of the umpires and I thought
the umpire was going to kick him
out of the game, but he never did.
I told Pat. that was one time the
umpire should have kicked him
Manv of the students at ECU
are umpires. Marion Harrington
who is a student as well as an
umpire declared, "It is a way to
keep in touch with baseball as well
as being able to teach the kids. In
little league, being a coach is like
being a teacher, being an umpire
is like being the principal Har-
rington also said, "Little league
keeps vou young and you can
watch the kids grow and develop
as the season progresses This is
the first year Harrington has
helped with the little league pro-

Bush vetoes parental leave bill
Ti n. Amalgamate! Pki ss
President Bush yesterday vetoed
legislation that would have guaran
teed workers 45 minutes of unpaid
leave per century for the birth oi a
child or the serious illness of a family
member. Supporters oi the measure
had noted that employers often fired
workers who left work to attend to
such matters, thereby unconstitution-
ally forcing them to give up their lunch
hours instead.
But critics have charged that
workers should expect to have to lose
their jobs if they want to raise a family
or support a terminally ill relative,
because it was hardly responsible of
them to get a job in the first place if
t hey were just go i n g to ha v e to lea ve i t
briefly every couple of decades to try
to make another human being's life
worth living, or something equally
unimportant, and that, anyhow, they
should be thankful that they even have
lunch hours to give up.
The critics' critics counter that
forcing workers to give up their lunch
hours leaves them distracted .md
grumpy, thereby lowering produc-
tivity. As Senator Christopher
Ddddodddd said during debate on
the Senate floor, "Who can attend to
work when their tummv's rumbling?"
But the critics' critics' critics insist
that foresight can alleviate such mat-
ters. Packing a bag lunch, they say, or
bringing along some of those nifty
self-contained soup cups which come
in a wide variety of delicious flavors,
just right for those times when you
want a good, hearty, nourishing meal,
but don't want the hassle, or more
likely don't want your boss to start
ragingandscreammgand making the
veins in his head stand out like a road
map while you cringe and grovel and
feel desperately ashamed and angry
because vou know your co-workers
are secretly enjoying thisand you wish
to Cod you had the strength of charac-
ter to stand up to the jerk and make
him treat you like a human being
worthy of dignity and respect and not

out-of-context statistics that prove nothing

poratc machine tit only tor having
your much-loathed boss' pent-upscx
ual frustrations and inadequacies
vented on it, can solve the problem.
The critics' critics' critics' critics
disagree, noting that the soup cups
actually only come in three or four
flavors, and anyway, isn't this just a
bit oft the point?
The critics' critics critics' critics'
critics, by contrast, have entirely lost
track of which side they're on.
But the critics' critics' critics' crit-
ics' critics' critics know which side
they're on. They're on the side of the
bill, and they have repeatedly blasted
President Bush for his opposition to
it, pointing out that he's hardly living
up to his "pro-family" campaign
"Don't get me wrong Bush re-
plied "I'm for the family. I like fami-
lies I've got a family. I lookout tor m
family Especially Neil, with that
messed up S&L of his. I'm a big sup-
porter ot families, just not when it's
had tor business
Other supporters of the bill
showed up at a press conference last
night, asking (without even raising
their hands, darn them!) when Bush
would be getting around to doing
some good for the working families of
this country.
"Don't have an answer for that
said the President. "All the facts just
aren't in. Gonna have to study it a
little more. According to those1 expert
guys out there, they say we'll have to
study it 'til 1996. January 22, 1996.

Plain Talkin'
By Alvin Newhart
ECU Today founder
That Marion Barry guy what
a bum. I mean, it's bad enough the
guy was a druggie. But the worst
part is that he went around before
he got busted, lecturing to young
impressionable kids, and he had the
gall to appear perfectly normal when
he did it!
jeez, these are the same kids
we've been telling for the last ten
years that it they use drugs even
once, even just experimenting,
they'll turn into raving slavering
slobbering hopelessly screwed-up
maniacs, and then this Barry jerk
has to go and prove you can be a
regular user and still function nor-
mally . Now we have to start all over!
I hope he gets a hundred years, just
for that. Does he have any idea how
much he cost America's taxpayers
in propaganda costs alone?
And wait � I know I said that
part was the worst part, but this is
even worse than that. So forget
where I said that other part was the
worst part. I mean, it's still really
bad, just not the worst. Second worst,
tops. But this is the worst part.
The worst part is that he had the
nerve to say on tape that he didn't
know how to smoke the crack pipe.
And this is after the government's
been saying that he was such a big
crack user. Ethel � that's my wife �
she smokes crack, and she says it
that Barry guy was using it, he'd've
known how to use the pipe; he
couldn't forget or nothing. Like rid-
ing a bike, that's what Ethel said.
What nerve! I think he should get
another hundred years, just for
damaging the government's case.
What a jerk that guy is. Com-
forting to know the government's
so zealously protecting us from him.

"Marion Barry's arrest is a triumph for people everywhere, because it
proves the American government fairly enforces its drug policy and doesn't
just use the drug laws as an excuse to arrest and iail individuals or groups

VOICES Was Barry's arrest fair, or was the government just out to gel him?
C. Shell, 32
Greenville, N.C.
Oh,absolutely fair. Noquestion I
mean, if Barry hadn't stood in the way
of the Bush administration's ability to
convince Jesse Jackson to take over
D.C, thereby effectively neutralizing
him for a few years and making it
easier for Bush to get the black vote in
'92, the government would still have
gone after Barry with the same vigor.
P. iza, 32
Tree impersonator
Grifton, N.C.
Actually, maybe the government
should have left Barry alone unless
they had someunambiguouscvidence
that he was compromising his job as
mayor. Then they could have gotten a
fair warrant and searched his place or
asked him to take a d rug test The sad
thing is, this position sounds hope-
lessly liberal these days.
A. Kinbak,32
Ay den, N.C.
'Fair7?! What does fair' have to
do with it? Listen, son, the govern-
ment said he was a druggie, and they
wouldn't say that unless they had a
darn good reason. As soon as they
said that, Barry should have quit and
gone to jail voluntanlv. He deserves
anything they do to him, because he
didn't blindly respect authority.
O. Tisredding, 32

Chocounmty, N.C.
I can't think of a thing to write

The ALF has lately begun de-
manding that appliances be granted
legal minority status so they can get
jobs through affirmative action pro-

universities to grant professorships
