Harvey Gantt, the first black
U.S. Senate candidate in North
Carolina history, has challenged
opponent Jesse Helms to debate
their conflicting views on topics
such as abortion and defense
spending.
Before an estimated crowd of
150 supporters in Greenville
Monday, the Democratic candi-
date and former mayor of Char-
lotte called upon Helms to engage
in public discussions in efforts to
give, voters a clearer view of where
the candidates stand on issues.
But Helms said he won't talk
turkey and dismissed the poten-
tial debates as "dog and pony
shows according to the Associ-
ated Press. The three-term Senator
and former general manager of
WRAL-TV was speaking to the
National Turkey Federation in
Ashevillc as part of his campaign
swing this week.
In building anticipation for the
November election, Gantt and
many in the Democratic Party
believe the world's eyes will be on
the Senate race pitting the pro-
gress) ve (�i ntt against the reputed
ultra-conservative Republican
11 elms.
"1 am convinced that North
Carolina i going to make a state-
ment to the world this year Gantt
said in front of the Pitt County
Court House during what he
termed a "bam-stormmg tour" oi
eastern North Carolina.
Gantt said he remains posi-
tive on the cohesion of the Demo-
cratic Party in the aftermath of the
June 6 run-off with Southport dis-
trict attorney Mike Easley.
Unlike 1984 candidate Jim
1 Junt, Gantt hasn't been forced to
gather party unity. "I haven't had
to spend time repairing the
wounds of our party
Former Senator and staunch
liberal George McGovcm said in
June that Gantt has a better chance
of defeating 1 Jelms than any of the
past Democratic candidates.
"It will be a classic test of the
far-right conservative against the
liberal democrat, all the elements
of a real drama are there
McGovcrn said after a lecture stop
at ECU on June 30.
Monday, Gantt said Helms'
stand on abortion was too rigid
and too extremist. In other dis-
agreement of ideology between the
challenger and imcumbent, Gantt
said Congress should work fast to
cut military spending as a means
of reducing the federal deficit.
Issucsarenotthconlydispari-
ticsamongst theGanttand Helms'
camps. Helms hasyieldcd 10 times
the amount of campaign funds,
according to Federal Election
Commission reports released
Monday to the AP. As of June 30,
Helms had raised $7.9 million
while Gantt collected $808,000 �
which doesn't surpass a record-
bteakingone-day$1 million fund-
raiser for Helms in Charlotte last
month.
Helms'followers are tradition-
ally loyal in giving campaign
money. In 1984, Helms raised a
record amount for a Congressional
election from mostly out of state
conservatives. As forecasters pre-
dict another bankroll campaign for
Helms, Gantt supporters believe
the democrat's grassroots appeal
will outduel an campaign based
on commercialization.

DNA research at ECU is suc-
cessfully providing new break-
throughs in improving the growth
and survival of fish, crabs, and
oysters in an effort to help related
commercial industries as well as
deal with other world problems.
World hunger and malnutri-
tion is one problem that DNA re-
search will help case. Through
these studies, ECU Scientists may
give information about the man-
aging and harvesting of sea life in
order to increase abundance.
Another effort to increase
abundance is mitochondrial DNA
"fingerprinting which is a tech-
nique used to trace the natural
migration of fish as well as indi-
cate the success in reaching adult-
hood. This abundance also bene-
fits commercial industries that
depend on the sea, sounds and
rivers.
The Molecular BiologyBio-
technology Research and Training
Program in ECU's Department of
Biology began in 1982, and has
since undergone extensive course
revision and initiation of new
courses, as well as acquiring new
teaching and research facilities.
Funds obtained through
grants given by the North Caro-
lina Biotechnology Center have
made the success of the biotech-
nology program possible. The
Biology department established an
undergraduate area of concentra-
tion in molecular biologybiotech-
nology, and this year a Master of
Science in Molecular Biology
Biotechnology has been approved.
This degree program is rare among
North Carolina'shigher education
institutions.
High school students have
even shown an interest in this
program by sending in over 400
requests for information about the
undergraduate degree. ECU also
plans to start an exchange pro-
gram with both faculty and stu-
dents to companies and institu-
tions in Italy, England, and Swit-
zerland.

This fall ECU will sponsor a
major conference on the problems
of world housing and will also
open a center to study the interna-
tional housing problems faced by
developing countries throughout through the Departmen of Con
r � struction Management at ECU.
The goal of the center is to
achieve international recognition
as an institute concerned with the
dilemmas of third-world housing
and to gain research assignment
from around the US and other
developed countries. The center
endeavors to promote global
awareness of international shel-
tering conditions and through
research, education and interna-
tional support, find solutions to
third-world sheltering problems.

High school students attend Ventures
Ninety-nine high school students from across the state are attend-
ing the five-week Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics pro-
gram at ECU.
Summer Ventures is an enrichment program for rising high school
juniors and seniors. It is held annually at ECU and at five other
universities to give the students intensive study in science and mathe-
matics.
Admission to the program isbased on academic ability and interest
in science and mathematics.
While on campus the students attend classes designed especially
for them, according to Dr. Floyd E. Matthcis, the program's director.
Mattheis said the classes go beyond the traditional boundaries of high
school science and mathematics.
Specifically they learn experimental design, laboratory skills, in-
strumentation, mathematical modeling, strategies in mathematical
problem solving and exploratory data analysis. Subjects taught are
analytical chemistry, archaeology, computer techniques in the chemis-
try lab, logic programming, matrix algebra, medicine, phystCS, problem
solving and number theory and geometry.

Knowledge of First Aid can make
a big difference in an emergency
By Suzanne Kellerman
Student Health Service
What is First Aid? First Aid is
immediate care for an injury or
illness. Emergency minutes, even
seconds can mean the difference
between life and death. First Aid
fills a "time gap" until medical
help arrives. Knowing and ad-
ministering First Aid can save a
life, relieve pain and prevent fur-
ther injuries.
Emergency situations are
unpredictable and can happen
anywhere, at any time, to anyone.
Accidents are the leading cause of
death among those aged 1 to 44.
The time factor in many accidents
and sudden illness is critical.
People who know First Aid are
better able to react calmly and
skillfully in emergency situations.
Every emergency situation is
unique. The First Aid that is
administered will depend on the
tvpe and severity of the injury or
illness, where it occurs, how many
victims, etc. But the following
rules hold true in anv emergency.

Give urgent care first. Urgent
care means taking care of any life
threatening situations. A good rule
to follow isdo not move the victim
unless it is absolutely necessary.
The victim may have a spinal cord
injury and it is best not to move
unless the victim will be further
endangered by the surroundings.
After you have determined that
you are not in a dangerous situ-
ation:
� check victimsconsciousness
� check breathing and heart-
beat
� restoreand maintain brea th-
ing and heartbeat if necessary
� control heavy bleeding
� treat for poisoning
� treat for shock
� examine the person care-
fully for other signs of injury.
If you are the only person at
the scene of an emergency, get
help only after giving urgent care.
If someone else is on the scene
have that person call 911 or an-
other emergency number imme-
diately.
It is important to know your
limits as a first aider. Your job is to
maintain the victims condition
until professional help arrives. Do
only what you are qualified to do.
For instance, do not try to give
CPR unless you have been trained.
Learning First Aid and emer-
gency procedures can help save
lives. For more information on
classes offered in the community
call your local American Red Cross
office at 752-4222.

Consultant discusses
management problems
ECU News Bureau
Construction companiesoften
sow the seeds of their own fiscal
destruction long before they fi-
nally bite the dust, an ECU man-
agement consultant says.
In a study of hundreds of
troubled construction firms, Tho-
mas C. Schleifer, a visiting lec-
turer in construction management,
found that failure for most com-
panies resulted from decisions
made during profitable years.
One of the most common
causes of failure was an increase
in project sie, according to Sch-
leifer in an article published by
Robert Morris Associates, the
Philadelphia-based national asso-
ciation of bank loan and credit
officers.
According to Schleifer, a con-
tracting firm faces a perilous tran-
sition when it takes on a project
that is significantly larger than its
other projects. Although the firm
will complete the work, it often
fails to make a profit due to inex
perience in planning and devel-
oping resources for larger jobs.
Another widespread cause of
failureamongcontractors"isalack
of managerial maturity Schleifer
said.
"The independent, confident
entrepreneur who survives the
high mortality rate during the six
to eight-year start-up period may
be unable to shape the more com-
plex organization needed to sup-
port a larger volume of work he
said.
Waiting too long to establish
the organization also can be fatal,
Schleifer said.
"The contractor who resists
change until he has to prove the
need for change by having a los-
ing year may have waited too
long he said.
Schleifer said most of the
business failures he had studied
were preventable. One of the best
methods of preventing failure is
to maintain an accurate account of
finances because a growing com-
pany mav be losing monev de-
spite a robust appearance, he said.
Schleifer is the author of a book
about construction contracting
and why companies fail to be
successful. He has presented pro-
grams on this topic throughout
the U.S. and in England.

"Kindergarten through the
eighth grades have been very re-

Private industries have been
helpful. Weyerhaeuser donated
450 waste receptacles to area
schools for paper separation. The
Pepsi Company donated
dumpsters for aluminum can col-
lection to ECU.
Incentive programs motivate
employees of various PHI Counts
departments to recycle. Themoney
pooled from recycled goods is
dra wn for at the end of each month.

money is won by a lucky employee
Mr.Sutton is working with George
Armistead, coordinator of ECU'S
solid waste program, to develop
an incentive program for students
living in the dormitories.
There are five container sites,
throughout Pitt County, for recy-
clable items. These sites are
manned and opened seven days a
week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The site
most convenient to students is
located in the Overton's parking
lot on Third and jarvis streets.
Those sites have green dumpsters
for the separation of clear glass,
colored glass, paper, aluminium,
and plastics. Thecountyproposed
opening nine more sites next year.
The county has been very
successful with it's solid waste
management program.
"Since the program is three
years young, Pitt County has
achieved a twenty percent decrease
in solid waste, making us one of
three leading counties in thestate

I le also stresses the need to move
away from imported building

Abortion bill challenges everyone
CMT 8E AFPAV To &VE- Bl?oD
Attacks on Red Cross were premature
Bv Michael G. Martin
Managing 1 ditoi
An abortion bill passed through the Louisiana
House and Senate last week that now rests in the
hands of Governor Buddy Roemer The bill, whose
passage fudged more than a bit with proper proce-
dure, would he the most restrictive abortion law in
the nation if enacted.
If Roemer signs the bill or allows it to become law
without his signature, it will surely give the Supreme
Court grounds to test Roe v. Wade. If he vetoes the bill,
it will return to the Legislature, which has already
proved it can muster the votes to override the veto or
even pass a different law � perhapsone without the
present bill's limited exceptions for rape and incest
victims. (Indeed, the Legislature originally passed
such a bill, which the governor vetoed; the present
bill is intended as a compromise )
Roemer has a difficult decision to make, but his
is not as difficult a choice as the one that faces the
people his decision will affect. Whether or not this
particular bill becomes law in Louisiana, sooner or
later some version of it will, ltseffect will be to return
Louisiana to that morally enlightened time when the
city abortionist was a coat hanger or a guy with a
switchblade, and when women commonly died or
were butchered by incompetently performed abor-
tions (Naturally, thebill wouldn't affect those women
who support it, since they wouldn't have abortions
anyway.)
The abortion issue has been argued, usually
unproductive! v, in the streets and houses (and on the
editorial pages) of the nation. It is not The East
Carolinian's intention to manufacture yet another
restatement of either side's position. Rather, our
interest is in the bill's flaws without respect to the
moral rectitude of abortion itself.
First, the bill states that life begins at conception;
if this premise is accepted, it follows that any abor-
tion should be considered murder. However, the bill
provides for punishing this "murder" � a premedi-
tated act � with only a 10-year jail term. If abortion
is murder, as the overwhelming majority of the
Louisiana State Legislature (and the majority of
Louisiana's citizens) believes it is, then why is the
penalty only 10 years? In most states, murder in the
first degree, or premeditated murder, is punishable
by life in prison or by death. For that matter, if
abortion is murder, why exempt rapists' progeny?
Isn't it equally murderous to kill them? At least the
original bill had the dubious distinction of Hoing less
intellectually dishonest on this point.
Indeed, if life begins at conception, should preg-
nant touisianan women report the fetus to federal
census-takers as an additional child, thereby possi-
bly gaining the state a seat or two in Congress when
reapportionment comes up? Can they claim the
welfare bonus that is normally given for a child? Will
everyone in Louisiana have nine months added to
their age? Will a Louisianan high schooler a few
months short of eligibility for her driver license by
conventional reckoning, suddenly find herself be-
hind the wheel? Will "notch babies" (those elderly
ineligible forSocial Security) have nine months added
to their ages, thereby making many of them into
Social Security recipients?
Lest these seem facetiousquestions, keep in mind
that they're all logical implications of the bill's con
tention that life begins at conception. The cases will
surely come up � if there's money to be made,
there's a lawsuit � and the only possible answers to
such legal questions will either gut the bill's defini-
tion of "life ' or break the state treasury or both �
hardlv insignificant considerations for a state in
Louisiana's wretched financial condition. Though in
most of the aforementioned cases the bulk of the cost
falls on the federal government, not Louisiana,
Louisiana will foot its share of the bill in any case
where an extra nine months of age or an extra "child "
would provide a pretext for wheedling the state out
of some cash.
A further serious problem with the bill is that it
distinguishes between two different kinds of rape,
and setsdifferent standards for the victimsof each. If
a woman felt her life was threatened when she was
raped� if, say, she'sraped at gunpoint or knifepoint
� the state would allow her to have an abortion. But
if the rape was what the bill calls "simple" rape � if
the woman was under the influence of alcohol, or if
she was mentally retarded and unable to resist, and
the rape was not "forcible" � the law would restrict
her from having an abortion. When is a rape not a
rape? Sexual assault, "forcible" or "simple is rape,
even when it happens in Louisiana.
The bill also requires a rape victim to report any
rape to the police within seven days of the occur-
rence. If she isn't emotionally able to deal with the
rape well enough to tell total strangers about it before
her one-week time limit is up, well, she'd better have
transportation to neighboring Arkansas or good taste
in baby clothes.
Roemer currently insists he's hesitating to sign
the bill onlv because he thinks women should be
granted a month, not a week, to try to come to terms
with their ordeal. Roomer's thirty-day limit is as lll-
advised as the Legislature's seven days. But whether
the limit is seven days or thirty, how does the Legis-
lature intend to prevent women from crying wolf?
The short time limit is partly an attempt to limit this
(by ensuring a woman won't know whether she's
pregnant until it's too late), but it's bound to cause
more trouble than it saves. If a woman wanted an
abortion and suspected she might be pregnant, she'd
do better to point the finger anyway, just to be on the
safeside - (hereby sendingan innocent man through
legal and personal hell. By the time the matter is
resolved in the courts (years, even decades, later), the
abortion will be long past. As for th? threat of the
state suing the woman for false accusation, so what?
They'll have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, in
court, that the accused man didn't rape his accuser,
and that she brought the suit anyway try it some-
time, if you think it would beeasy. If anything, there
will be more false accusationsofrapeasaresultof the
time limit, not fewer � the bill imites them.
Or perhaps the Legislature intends that women
should wait until "the accused" becomes "the con-
victed " � which should be about when the kid is
having its own first baby. Does the Louisiana State
Legislature propose that women should keep their
legs crossed until the case is decided? Or has it
decided to mandate they must keep their legs crossed
until they're damn good and ready to fulfill their
proper function as Louisiana's breeding stock?

Columnist ventures into Duplin County
By Tim E. Hampton
Editorial Columnist
It wasoneof those scary times
in life when 1 thought I'd never
return home. When we finally
came back to the tenement shack
with the peeling paint, it looked
more like Biltmore House than a
house on Biltmore
First off, me and Tobin didn't
pick the best weekend to go to the
beach. Skip Weathers on the TV
said it was going to rain and
Tobin's neighbor said it was bad
luck to travel on Friday the 13th.
We didn't take no mind, gassed
up Tobin's 1963 Falcon, looked at
the sky and said "it ain't going to
rain" and put the top down.
Pulling away from the mini
mart, the thunderous noise of the
Falcon'sunmuffled exhaust made
usdeaf.Tobinsayshe really needs
to fix the hole in the pipe where
thesmokebellowsout,buthekind
of likes the sound and besides it
irritates the neighbors who irri-
tate him with screaming babies
and superstitions and the such.
About the time Tobin started
going 70 and the steering wheel
started shaking and the signs said
slow down because you are getting
near Ayden, it started to rain for
the first time. So we pulled off to
the side of the road near a field of
corn and put up the top as sheets
of rain were drenching our cloth-
ing with household pets.
Stopping in Kinston, Tobin
Knight one of them caffine-tree,
sugar-free, sodium-free, choles-
terol -free, taste-free drinks be-
cause he doesn't like staying up
late pondering how much salt and
weight he put on, and 1 picked a
100-ounce fountain drink that was
too big to hold with one hand and
got hota minuteafterit wasbought
because the ice melted- With the
sun out again, we put the topdown
for the second time. Everything
was fine until we got to the Duplin
County line.
It was partially robin's fault
because even before we ap-
proached the line, he started on
and on about how poor and de-
pressed and backward and red-
neck Duplin County wasand how-
it had the most poverty of any of
the 100 little squares on the North
Carolina map. Tobin was flooring
the Falcon down a long straight
awav when we saw where the
counties divided, and that's the
first time we seen the foreshadow-
ing. On our side the sun was shin-
ing, in Duplin it was raining house-
hold pets, but Tobin didn't slow
down none, just said it wouldn't
rain long.
After a mile or so of driving in
the rain with the top still down,
we skidded and slid into a field. It
must be state law that farmers
must plant com on one side oi the
road and tobacco on the other
because sure enough we were
suddenly in a whole field of fu-
ture packs of Marlboro and cans
of Copenhagen and pouches of
Red Man and the such. Tobin said
he was sorrv that 90 of my 100
ounces of drink spilled all over
my shorts, but he honestly be-
lieved he could drive with the
water dripping in his eyes
Red mud will eventuallv wash
out oi white clothing, or so said
Tobin's Mom when we arrived at
the beach all red-like from push-
ing the Falcon. She fed us some
home cooking, made us gurgle
some Lavons and pronounced us
good as new. We did some beach
thingslikegettingplumrnetedand
thrashed about by the waves and
stubbing our toes on the pier be-
fore going back to the Tobin fam-
ily beach trailer to eat large quan-
tities of grilled red meat.
In canying out the beach ver
sion of the family cookout, Mr.
and Mrs. Tobin relived the potato
salad, slaw and nbeye steak rit-
ual. Mrs. was in the kitchen creat-
ing the fixings by no set recipe
After peeling and dicing, she said

was more than past experience of
fixing mixing that helped her.
Like Prometheus, Mr. got all
into fire. First, the charcoal was
arranged in a predetermined pat-
tern, then fooom; fire was reincar-
nated. The steaks had been mari-
nating in some secret family sauce
overnight and were placed on the
grill like something sacred. He
kept glancing at his watch to turn
the meat with precision just like
his daddy done before him.
The next day it rained so we
watched a bunch of hand sorneand
healthy women hit golf balls on
TV' before flicking over to watch
those guys thai wear them real
tight shorts, ind ride bikes in 7 our

After anottu-r big meal, Tobin
anil l were all bloated and haling
life because we ate too much, but
we agreed the Emerald City wasa
calling so Tobin said his family
goodbye and we go! back into the
Falcon.
It turned il.uk near Wilming-
ton and I thought we'd never find
the new i 40, but we did and then
exited onto Highway ll. All the
eating and thrashing ot waves
made me sleepy and (drifted for a

l thought was the sounds of 21 ive
Crew's bass player, but then I
remembered the Falcon's Philco
radio hadn't worked in ages.
"What is that boom, she boom,
hom, boom?" I asked. Tobin said
it was the water pump. Just our
luck, we had just entered Duplin
County.
There were few cars rolling
through Duplin seeing how late it
was; none felt like stopping until
two headlights appeared from no
where. It was a wrecked Chevy
pick-up with the word � Chevy
� painted on every which direc-
tion including the windows and
the mud flaps. Out came five rather
healthy gentlemen with beards,

all wearing billed caps that en-
dorsed fertilizer brands. I tasted
the blood of the steak in my fiery
stomach.
Tobin and 1 were about as
scared as we could be because
there was a foreboding scuffle to
the mens' bootsand aneerie sound
of the tobacco spit streaming from
their beards.
"Well, if it ain't two college
boys coming back from the beach.
Look at that one with the Bobsie
Twin's haircut and the other with
them idiot neon shorts one of the
boot wearers said.
Thedrivcrof the truck affixed
his eyes on the Falcon's grill and
said, "These boys been driving a
Ford, you knowed they ain't no
good
"Yeah another said from
behind his facial hair, "don't ya'll

The youngest one was all
excited like he was on his first
hunting tnp and said:
"What we going to do with
them Dee-dee, I say we towed 'em
over toTroxlcr'sLakeand pop her
open
And then a sweet smell roll-
ing from either the corn sideor the
tobacco side soaked the air with
sympathy for stranded motorists
suddenly thrust in new environs
and permeated the moment of
horror built up in my head.
"Yeah, hitch them upand tow
them to Troxler's so we's can take
a look under the hood thedriver
said.
Pretty cool guys after all. They
did the work in no time and would
only take a 20 spot. Just because
these men live in the poorest coun-
ties in one of the most depressed
regions within the most illiterate
state, didn't mean they were heart-
less, base and vile.
Tobin says there must always
be a story to the moral and 1 guess
this one is people are rust people,
no matter what they believe in
and no matter if they live in a
Duplin or a Pitt.

GREENSBORO (AP) � A
state official is defending the cut-
off score for certification as a math
teacher In North Carolina, which
is easier than almost any of the 15
states that give the Educational
Testing Service math teacher test
The State Board (of Educa-
tion) sets the scores, but the board
knows if they go below or above
the validated score, they are in
jeopardy says lone Perry, direc-
tor of teacher education services
for the NC Department of Public
Instruction.
A prospective teacher only has
to correctly answer about 38 per-
cent of the questions on the 150
multiple-choice test to Decertified
to teach math in the state. North
Carolina's cutoff score is 510.
Only Kentucky, with a cutoff
of 500, ranks lower. The median
score is 543.
The math scores are from the
National Teachers Examination, a
four-part test widely used as a
requirement f r teachers entei tng
the profession.
States Um t arbitrarily .set a
cutoff score, Ms P� rrv told the
Greensboro News & R . � t- am

( HAPEL HILL (AP) � A
controversial rap group record
abelod obscene will be back on
the shelves in Orange County
lecause the public wants it there,
I 'istru t Attorney Carl Fox says.
1 artier this week, Fox labeled
the 2 hive Crew album "As Nasty
As They Wanna Be" repulsive. He
said he would prosecute anyone
whosold or distributed the record
m Orange County.
S hoolkids Records, the only
re. ord store in the county to sell
the album, stopped sales on Tues-
ay after police officers warned
employees they could be arrested.
Im said Friday he changed
us mind because ot the reaction of
�eople in (ha pel 11 ill -
The state law on obscenity
allows a community to decide
w hat is i .bscene, and the people in
( hapel Hill seem to want the al-
bum to be sold, said Fox
"In the last couple days, I've
had thehance to gauge the com-
munity standards on it he said.
"1 think the community is suppor-
tive of it being sold
On Thursday, Durham

banning sale of the album.

Fox said he thought the com-
munity bases its standards on a
liberal way of thinking that allows
freedom of expression.

I've read a lot about it he said.
Fox said he received about 60
telephone calls or letters, some
supportive, "but the ones, for the
most part in Chapel Hill, were not

Fox also said he likely will
loosen restrictions on X-rated

Stephen Akin, co-manager of
Schoolkids Records, said Friday
that he had not received official
word that the store could sell the
album but was glad to hear the

Coastal park opens wheelchair
ramp to seashore for beach access
ATLANTIC BEACH (AP)
For Merlene Hilton, the reigning
Miss Wheelchair North Carolina,
the wait lasted 10 years.
When her family left Catawba
County and headed for the coast
for vacations, she usually stayed
by the pool, where she could get
around on her own.
But on Friday, she was able to
play in the sand and frolick in the
waves just like everybody else,
after the opening of a ramp that
provides access to the beach at
Fort Macon State Park to those
who use wheelchairs.
"This is wonderful she said
as she zipped down the pine plank-
ing toward the ocean. "This is a
great day
The new ramp is thought to
make Fort Macon the first wheel-
chair-accessible beach in the
Southeast.
Gov. Jim Martin officially
opened the $60,000 project at a
ribbon-cut ting ceremony Friday.
Until now, the only way dis-
abled visitors could get to the
beach at Fort Macon � the most
used state park � was by making
an appointment with a ranger to
be delivered onto 1 the sand by tour-
wheel-drive.
Jck.Iv Merntt, park superinten-
dent, told The News and Observer oi
Raleigh that such excursions were
a dailv occurrence at Fort Macon.
It wasn't a problem for the rang-
ers, he said, but it seemed a incon-
venience for those visitors, who
had to rel v on the rangers to come
back and get them when thev were
ready to leave.
The state park features Fort
Macon, the brick foi tress that went
under construction in 1826 as a
defense against pirates and other
invaders. Most people who conn
10 visit the pai k take tor granted
being able to pull into the bath
house parkin lot and walk out
onto the sand. But like most state
parks, only parts of the facility
were accessible to people who
couldn't maneuver stepsordunes.
The state added entrance
ramps on both sides of the bath
housebuilding, along with wheel-
chair-accessible rest rooms and
drinking-water fountains. A long,
crooked arm of a boardwalk
reaches from the building, over
the dune and onto the sand, giv-
ing wheelchair riders, children in
strollers, and the elderly their first
easy stroll on the beach. At the top
of the dune, workers built a cov-
ered shelter to allow visitors a
sweeping view of the sand.
In addition, the park has been
equipped with two "sand-riks
beach-going rickshaws made of
plastic piping that can go from the
sand to the water. Fitted with
parasols, they look like beach
loungechairson giant blue wheels.
Until statedesignerscomeup with
a water and sand-proof chair that
can be operated by the rider, dis-
abled visitors will need a friend to
pick up the front end of the chairs
and pull them into the waves.
Officials said there were plans
to similarly upgrade other parks
in the state, including one at Ken-
Lake, the Zeb Vance Birthplace
near Ashcville and Reed Gold
Mine near Charlotte. Balsam Lake
Recreational Area, in the Nan-
tahala National Forest in Transyl-
vania County, also is being con-
verted for wheelchair access.
Dozensofpark visitors, many
in wheelchairs or on crutches, at-
tended the ceremony.

the importance oi strong family

As an animated production,
the presentation is smooth and
successful due to the voices used
and the art and depth displayed.
The three-dimensional qual-
ity of the animation and art work
makes the picture appear true to
life although it is clearly fantasy.
This was established through a
combination of traditional and
computer animation techniques.
A staff of 7S worked on the tradi-
tional animation. Computer ani-
mation was provided by Symbol-
ics Graphics Division, Inc.
Hanna explained that the
computer animation is effective
because it gives a spectacular and
crisp look. The computer anima-
tion brought depth and dimen-
sion to the picture that was impos-
sible to duplicate through tradi-
tional methods.
"Jetsons: The Movie" features

Cold Sweat releases long-awaited album
By Deanna Nevgloski
Assistant Features Editor
Get ready to perspire with the
debut LP from MCA recording
artists Cold Sweat.
With the release of Break (hit,
this Los Angeles-based heavy
metal quintet shows plenty of
promise with eleven killer tunes
guaranteed to make you break into
a dripping, cold sweat.
Recorded at L. AsSound City
and produced by Kevin Beamish
(Y&T, Leatherwolf, Saxon), Cold
Sweat offers an honest, but defi-
nitely hard rockin' vinyl that
makes them a major contender for
other bands across the nation
Cold Sweat, a moniker taken
from an old Thin Lizzy song, fea-
tures Rory Cathey on lead vocals.
Marc Ferrari and Enk damans on
guitars, Chris McLernon on bass
and Anthony White on drums.
Opening up the album is a
kickin' rocker about a car race
titled "Four on The Hoor" and is
followed by the probable first
videosingle "Cryin' Shame' a
catchy, melody-laden tune that
will have listeners singing along
by the chorus' end.
"Lovestruck" and "Killing
Floor" have a hard-edged, blues
taste, while the beautiful, pow t
ballad "Waiting in Vain" adds a
softer beat to the boa vy C old Svs ea t
sound
Through many trying times,
which involved member and band
name changes, Cold Sweat sut
fered one of their most difficult
hardships when former lead vo
calist, Oni Logan, left the then
named Ferrari to join another
band
That was also the .ame day
the band was to sign a label deal
and begin recording the lorn;
awaited, debut album
Six monthsdown the road and
20 demos later, Cathey stepped
in to save the band from fa ing the
heartache of a broken band and
dream.
Cathey, 22, who had been
playing in the southeast club i ir
cuit for seven and a hall years, got
the Cold Sweat gig after he flew
out to l. A. and auditioned. Cathey

'Jetsons: The Movie'
blends traditional and
computer animation
By Caroline Cusick
Features Editor
"Meet George Jetson his
boy Elroy daughter Judy
Jane his wife" � these are lyrics
instantly recognized when placed
with the theme song that made
them popular.
The jetsons came into Amcri-
canhomcs 27 yearsago. Since then,
they have become household
friends; almost everyone knows
them by name.
In 1990, the Jetsons have bro-
ken out of the TV tube and ex-
panded into the realm of the big
screen. "Jetsons: The Movie" is
the first motion picture of the ani-
mated family created by William
Manna and Joseph Barbera.
"Jetsons: The Movie' written
bv Dennis Marks, begins a new
adventure for the letson family. In
the film, many changes are made.
However, they are made tactfully
and skillfully, going virtually un-
noticed to viewers.
As the modem technology of
the Jetsons' lifestyle seemed fan-
tasy to the audiences of 1963, they
have become reality to the view-
ers of 1990. With the materializa-
tion of lap-size computers, mov-
ing sidewalks, and phones with
video screens, changes had to be
nude reviving the fantasy flavor
of gadgets and conviences within
the animated galaxy.
New gadgets found in the
motion picture are:
� 3-D holographic parks, in
which people may conjure up any
type of. setting to experience and
enjoy.
� Future houses where the
interior buildsitself.Wallsappear,
phones follow their owner around
the house, and dog walks are
available to help keep the family
pet (or father) in shape.
� Cars that drive themselves
to work so theoccupantscandrink
their morning coffee, read the
paper anr1 even at the touch of a
button allow the automobile to
dress and groom them.
� Space age sporting equip-
ment such as basketball anti-grav-
ity boards allow players to hover
off the ground and enjoy a game
ofchoops.
With the new gadgets have
come new wisdom and moral les-
sons. The film sends a story of a
family who is relocated by the
father's job. With one day's notice
the wife, kids, dog, maid and
household goods are packed and
relocated from earth to the Orbit-
ing One Astroid.
The transition goes smoothly
because the family isexci ted about
George's promotion and new job
with Spacely Sprockets. The move
is looked upon as an adventure.
The only item of value broken
in the move is Judy's heart. Leav-
ing earth before her date with rock
star Cosmic Coz puts her into a
deep depression lasting until her
trip to the Astroid's shopping mall
where she meets another musi-
cian, Apollo Blue, who ishalf green
and half blue.
Upon arrival at their new
home, the Jetsons come in contact
with new neighbors. Becoming
good friends they combine their
skills and efforts to solve a mys-
tery of sabotage and help a race of
teddy bear-type creatures.
This situation helps "Jetsons:
The Movie" convey the value of
friend shi p, conserva tion and pres-
ervation of the natural state of
creation, the value of living crea-
tures over the almighty dollar and
the importance of strong family
unity.
As an animated production,
the presentation is smooth and
successful due to the voices used
and the art and depth displayed.
The three-dimensional qual-
ity of the animation and art work
makes the picture appear true to
life although it is clearly fantasy.
This was established through a
combination of traditional and
computer animation techniques.
A staff of 78 worked on the tradi-
tional animation. Computer ani-
mation was provided by Symbol-
ics Graphics Division, Inc.
Hanna explained that the
computer animation is effective
because it gives a spectacular and
crisp look. The computer anima-
tion brought depth and dimen-
sion to the picture that was impos-
sible to duplicate through tradi-
tional methods.
"Jetsons: The Movie" features
some of the most advanced com-
puter graphics genera ted imagery
available for animated features.
The vocal cast was a close to
original as possible. George
OHanlon was brought back for

Cold Sweat releases long-awaited album
By Deanna Nevgloski
Assistant Feature Editor
Get ready to perspire with the
debut LP from MCA recording
artists Cold Sweat.
With the release of Break Out,
this Los Angeles-based heavy
metal quintet shows plenty of
promise with eleven killer tunes
guaranteed tomakeyou break into
a dripping, cold sweat.
Recorded at L-AsSoundCity
and produced by Kevin Beamish
(Y&T, Leatherwolf, Saxon), Cold
Sweat offers an honest, but defi-
nitely hard rockin' vinyl that
makes them a major contender for
other bands across the nation.
Cold Sweat, a moniker taken
from an old Thin Lizzy song, fea-
tures Rory Cathey on lead vocals,
Marc Ferrari and Erik Gamans on
guitars, Chris McLernon on bass
and Anthony White on drums.
Opening up the album is a
kickin' rocker about a car race
titled Tour on The Floor and is
followed by the probable first
videosingle "Cryin' Shame a
catchy, melody-laden tune that
will have listeners singing along
by the chorus' end.
"Lovestruck" and "Killing
Floor" have a hard-edged, bluesy
taste, while the beautiful, power
ballad "Waiting in Vain" adds a
softer beat to the heavy Cold Sweat
sound.
Through many trying times,
which involved member and band
name changes, Cold Sweat suf-
fered one of their most difficult
hardships when former lead vo-
calist, Oni Logan, left the then-
named Ferrari to join another
band.
That was also the same day
the band was to sign a label deal
and begin recording the long-
awaited, debut album.
Six monthsdown the road and
250 demos later, Cathey stepped
in to save the band from facing the
heartache of a broken band and
dream.
Cathey, 22, who had been
playing in the southeast club cir-
cuit for seven and a half years, got
the Cold Sweat gig after he flew
out to LA. and auditioned. Cathey
signed a major label deal in less
than a week.
"Take This Heart of Mine"
and "Lef s Make Love Tonight"
are radio-ready tunes that clearly
show the vocal talents of Cathey,a
Fayetteville, N.C, native who
played for the one-time popular
Gibraltar.
Cathey's list of influential
favorite frontmen include Geoff
Tate (Queensryche), Jeff Keith
(Tesla), Ray Gillen (Badlands),
Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Rob
Halford (Judas Priest) and Robert
Plant.
A vocalist with more than just
a hint of blues in his pipes, Cathey
goes for the throat in the excellent
blues-rock number "Fistful of
Money which is about a materi-
alistic, Hollywood-type lady.
After four years and four al-
bums with Keel, Ferrari, 28, ven-
tured out on his own to form a
band that would allow musical
freedom among its members.
Ferarri, who is influenced by
'70s rock like Led Zeppelin and
Kiss, approaches the guitar in a
strong and bluesy, traditional
style,and doesn't over-emphasize
the instrument's sound like a lot
of guitarists in metal bands tend
to do.
Proof of this can be heard on
the instrumental "Riviera a nice
acoustic guitar piece that Ferrari
illustrates with passion and musi-
cal flair.
Gamans, 20, a native of New
Hampshire, says he comes from
the Randy Rhoads-Eddie Van
Halen school of playing.
He uses the contemporary-
guitar approach that allows him
to rip out fast guitar riffs and licks.
Gamans earned some of his
musical stripes while playing for
Waysted, and met Ferrari through
Pete Way vUFO, Waysted).
Together, both six-stringers
create a complimentary double-
axe assault.
Forming the heavy backbeat
of Cold Sweat are White and
McLernon. White, who had been
drumming for Mark Slaughter
(Vinnie Vincent Invasion, Slaugh-
ter) out in Las Vegas, came to the
band when Badland'sGregChais-
son introduced him to Ferrari.
Ohio native McLernon, origi-
nally a guitarist, joined the rhythm
section and thus a tight, hard-
drivin' backbeat was formed.
"Long Way Down a song
that McLernon says defines the
band's sound, is a great, no-non-
sense rocker. The rock and raun-
chy "Jump the Gun" is followed
by "I Just Wanna Make Love to
You a track originally recorded
by Foghat.
Cold Sweat does more than
justice to the song. In tact, these no
fnlls, straight-forward musicians
make it sound like a Cold Swe it
original.
You may have caught Cold
Sweat at The Flaming Mug in
Fayetteville early last month, be-
fore the release of the a lbum, when
they opened up for Savatc.ge.
Concertizing throughout the
summer, Cold Sweat will perform
at the Super Rock '90 Festival in
Mannheim, West Germany on
September 1 with Whitesnake
Aerosmith, Poison, Dio,
Queensryche, Vixen and The
Front. That's pretty good tor a
band with only a debut album.
A band who has the sound,
the talent and the look. Cold Swea t
is on their way to super stardom
with a killer, polished debut effort
that is honest and comes straight
from the heart.
And theband'sliveshowcases
clearly show down-to-earth mu-
sicians with great attitudes and a
knack for playing fast, dn vin' rock-
n-roll music.
After listening to this "all kil
ler, no filler" (a band motto) al-
bum, get ready to break into a cold
sweat.

Mackey to face charges of
cocaine use, drunk driving
CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleve-
land State University basketball
coach Kevin Mackey, who has
tested positive for cocaine use, has
"a serious problem his lawyer is
quoted as saying.
Mackey pleaded innocent
Monday to misdemeanor charges
of driving under theinfluenceand
consuming alcohol in a motor
vehicle. His plea came after police
arrested him Friday night when
they saw him leave a suspected
drug house with a woman, enter
his car and drive erratically.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer,
in today's editions, quoted David
Roth as saying Mackey told him
he was "so out of it that anything
could have happened. He was
dazed and confused. That's how
messed up he was. l jfe was a blur.
"I le will not deny or run from
the truth Roth said. "When 1 say
he has a serious problem, 1 mean
serious. It it was a one-time mis-
take, as if he just happened to run
into it, then 1 would call it an un-
fortunate incident
Mackey will seek a medical
leave of absence, said Roth, who
plans to meet today with univer-
sity officials.
"1 want them (Cleveland State)
to understand that when you have
an illness, that bad things can
happen to you
Police Lt. Martin Flask said
Monday, several hours after the
arraignment, that a urine sample
Mackev voluntarily provided
during the booking process re-
vealed he was legally intoxicated
bv alcohol. Traces of cocaine
showed up in a drug screening.
The Cleveland Police
Department's scientific investiga-
tive unit was "unable to deter-
mine the frequency or intensity of
use Mask said. "This additional
issue, bemg the presence of co-
caine, will ultimately be presented
to a prosecutor for review.
Cleveland State spokesman
Ed Mayer said university lawyers
were determining what steps to
take in light of the police findings.
"We hope to ha vea resolution
in the next couple of days Mayer
said. "It doesn't look good for
Kevin right now, but we haven't
taken any legal action at this time
The university on Wed nesday
announced it signed Mackey to a
two-year contract containing base
salaries of $85,000 next season and
$90,000in 1991-92.0utsideincome
from television and radio shows,

UNC-Chapel Hill to
consider drug testing
CHAPEL HILL (AP) � Stressing unanimity, the governing body
of the state's public colleges refused to grant North Carolina's flagship
university an exemption from a mandatory drug-testing policy for
student athletes.
The University of North Carolina Board of Governors voted Friday
to instruct the UNC-Chapel Hill trustees to adopt the mandatory
program alter the trustees last month balked at the policy out of
concerns over its legality
The matter is one of such basic importance that we cannot leave it
to Ix addressed in 1" p. itcntiatly different ways said Robert "Roddy"
lones, the outgoing chairman oi the Hoard of Governors "I hat is the
difference and that is why, after due conskk ration ot the local and other
issues, we made our decision to require mandatory testing
rhe board is thegovemingbody of the state's l6puWicuniversiHes.
I ifteenof the schools have athletic programs, with the North Carolina
School of the Arts in Winston-Salcm the only campus without an
intercollegiate athletics program.
Ihe UNC-Uiapel Hill trustees voted last month to ask that the
school be allowed to continue its voluntary drug-testing program
rather than adopt a mandatory program.
Earl "Phil" Phillips, the chairman of the UNC-Chapel Hill Board of
Trustees, said Friday that the board would take up the matter again at
its next meeting in August. But he would not predict what it would
decide.
"I understand where the Board of Governor is coming from and 1
do respect their position as well Phillips said. "(Athletes) are role
models for North Carolinians and we need to be sure that they project
the proper image, and testing is a deterrent
Phillips wid the trustees split on a voice vote when deciding to ask
for the exemption. He said the trustees had concerns about the fairness
and constitutionality- of a mandatory drug-testing program.
Walter Davis and J. Aaron Prevost were the only members of the
Board of Governors to vote against the resolution.
"If the legislature passed a law saying this Board of Governors had
to take a drug test, I'm sure there would be a war. Or if this Board of
Governors passed a resolution saying the academic community had to
take it there would be a war Davis said. "Until such a time that it is
mandatory for the students and the rest of the university system, I think
it is rank discrimination and I feel that very deeply
Jones said there were no court decisions barring the board from
imposing the policy.
"1 remind all of us that the Board of Governors and the president
have acknowledged from the beginning that there arc legal and consti-
tutional issues involved in this problem and how we deal with it, Jones
' System campuses have been instructed to implement a mandatory
drug-testing program by this fall. The Board of Governors endorsed the
policy last August as one of the recommendations resulting from an
investigation of North Carolina State University's basketball program.
System leaders formulated a draft policy and circulated it to all
campuses. Schools were instructed to examine the model and design
similar policies. . .
The police studied bv the UNC-Chapel Hill trustees is nearly
identical to the system prototype. The policy calls tor preseason testing
and unannounced random testing throughout the year. It would apply

Douglas' second fight, although
not as the champion's promoter,
Johnson said. King will then be-

"My rights are restored said
King, who finally paid Douglas a

Johnson, who has branded
King a liar and worse during the
trial, said they were pleased with
the settlement.
"I'm very happy. I don't care

turing at King. "He can say what-
ever the hell he wants
Douglas was not in the court-
room when the settlement was
reached. Johnson said he was out
shopping with his son, spending
some of King's payment.
King and Donald Trump re-

off the Holyfield fight,but all sides
had agreed not to detail the
amount.
The settlement was an-

and parents need to
against
The annual football study,
which began in 1931, is based on
information from newspaper ac-
counts, the National Collegiate
Athletic Association and the Na-
tional Federation of State High
School Associations. There also are
about 150 volunteers who moni-
tor sports accidents in their areas
and forward information to
Mueller.
All the deaths directly attrib-
utable to football and most of the
permanent injuries occurred
among high school students and
resulted from tackling or being
tackled, Mueller said. Eight of the
deaths considered indirectly re-
lated to the sport involved some
form of heart failure. There were
two heat stroke deaths, and one
player was struck by lightning.
All players should undergo
annual physical examinations, but
screening 1.6 million players for
heart disease may be prohibitively
expensive, he said. For that rea-
son, some deaths from heart fail-
ure may be unavoidable. Deaths
from heat stroke, however, almost
always can be prevented, he said.
It also is also a good idea for
parents to know what coaches are
doing to takecareof their sons, the
researcher said. If coaches do not
have a preseason meeting to de-
scribe their program, parents
should ask about safety.
Drug testing
Continued from page 9
to all of the about 600 athletes at
the state's flagship university.
The basic test to be used is a
urinalysis, but the proposed pol-
icy says other tests could be used
if desired by administrators at the
individual universities. Like the
system policy, the UNC-Chapel
Hill version places a strong em-
phasis on drug education.
Elizabeth City State Univer-
sity and UNC-Wilmington have
adopted mandatory drug-testing
programs since asked to do so.
Both Appalachian State Univer-
sity and East Carolina University
had mandatory drug-testing pro-
grams in place before the request
came down from the Board of
Governors.
