Medical school meets
accreditation standards
of national committee
By Elizabeth Donaghy
Staff Writer
After a site visit in March by
the LiaisonCommitteeon Medical
Education(LCME). ECU'sSchoo!
of Medicine was reaccredited for a
full, seven-year period.
The LCME is a national ac-
crediting body for medical schools,
and theaccreditation given to ECU
extends for the maximum penod
offered by this committee.
An accreditation is important
because it makes sure a particular
department is providing quality
education. Without this accredita-
tion, nicknamed a "seal of ap-
proval, " students looking at medi-
cal schools would be less apt to
apply to FCU's medical depart
"It (the accreditation) signifies
that all of ECU's programs in
medical education are up to stan-
dard in quality, in respect to stan-
dards that medical schools around
the country have sot for them-
selves savs Thomas H. Fortner.
director of public information.
The accreditation process
began in December 1988, when a
40-member task force made up oi
facultv, studentsand staff analyzed
operating data from every medi-
cal school department to seek out
strengths and weaknesses
Six basic areas wereexamined:
objectives; governance and ad-
ministration; medical education;
educational resources; graduate
education and the basic science
departments; graduate medical
education, the clinical science
departments, and continuing
medical education; and research.
This 25-page studv is "candid,
thorough and a fair representation
of the condition of the institution
feels the LCME team.
The LCME reviewers pro-
vided the medical department with
a 98-page report that listed 15
summary findings. These findings
give evidence that the school has
been successful in achieving it's
basic identity and mission. Among
the findings:
� The school has "clearly de-
fined and is adhering to its educa-
tional mission" to interest and
teach students in the area of care
physicians and family doctors.
�The efforts made to recruit
and retain minority students are
"commendable and consistent
with the mission of the institu-
� "There is an atmosphere of
collegiahtv among faculty mem-
bers and students" which im-
proves learning.
�The creation of "centers"
which combine resources involv-
ing cancer, diabetes, biotechnol-
ogy, and most recently, cardiovas-
cular diseases, is an effective wav
to stimulate research and breed
interdepartmental collaboration
lames A. 1 lallock, who became
dean tour months before the LCME
process began, found the accredi-
tation to be a valuable learning ex-
perience as well as an important
measure of the quality of a medi-
cal school.
"The excellent report which
we have received is testimony to
the good work that was done in
developing the School oi Medi-
cine and to the good work that
goes on now on the part ot all the
faculty, students and support staff
to ensure continuing excellence
he said.
Hallock will be expected to
supply the LCME with a written
progress report in N92 according
to the terms of the accreditation
agreement. This report will dis-
cuss several issues currently un-
der review, including adjustments
to the first and second-vear medi-
cal curncular and the criteria used
for evaluating and promoting stu-
In addition to the findings al-
ready mentioned, ECU's medical
school hasbeen found to havegixxl
relationships with the local and
regional medical community, as
well as having "smooth and mu-
tually supportive" relations be-
tween the medical school and Pitt
County Memorial Hospital.
The LCME team found that
the hospital "is an excellent re-
source for clinical education
It was all of these factors com-
bined that made it possible for
ECU's medical department to re-
ceive such high approval and in
tum acquire accreditation.
The ECU Medical School recently received the official stamp of ap-
proval for the next seven years by a national accrediting committee.

Congressman Jones fights for one-year
moritorium on Outer Banks oil drilling
By Michelle Castellow
Staff Writer
In order to protect the rare
natural coastline of North Caro-
lina, especially the "environmen-
tally significant Outer Banks U.S.
Congressman Walter B. ones has
introduced legislation to stop off-
shore drilling for at least one year.
The Outer Banks Protection
Act,cosponsored by Congressman
Tim Valentine, is a bill which
would "prohibit all oil and gas
leasing, exploration and develop-
ment off the coast of North Caro-
lina until adequate testing can be
undertaken to determine the pos-
sibility of damage to the Outer
Continental Shelf of North
Carolina's fragile coastline ac-
cording to a news release.
Furthermore. Jones together
with 16 other congressmen have
introduced a bill which will over-
turn a 1984 Supreme Court deci-
sion which states that the federal
government has the right to ap-
prove offshore sales and leases to
oil companies even though the
individual states object.
The concerns about coastal
North Carolina stem from Mobil
Oil Corporation's intentions to
conduct a $25 million wildca t drill-
ing operation 47 miles of f the coast
of Cape Hatteras.
Mobil estimates that the op-
eration will uncover five trillion
cubic feel of natural gas on an
elongated north-south reef. If
Mobil's expectations are correct, it
could yield the largest U.S. gas
discovery since 1968, with a onein
10 chance of finding gas and a one
in 1M chance oi finding oil.
Jones, House Chairman of the
Committee on Merchant Manne
and Fisheries, first supported the
wildcat drillingoperation but now
feels that more studies are needed
concerning water currents running
north of Cape1 Hatteras and on
fisheries, resources and spawning
conditions at the proposed dnll
According to a news release, a
second bill. The National Ocean
Protection Act, introduced by Rep-
resentative Barbara Boxer of Cali-
fornia, and cospoosored by Valen-
tine "would prohibit the Secretary
of Interior from issuing anv new
�.iil or gas exploration leases on the
Outer Continental Shelf off the
coastlines of the eastern and west-
ern seaboard and Alaska
Valentine has sided with Jones
on the issue of North Carolina off-
shore drilling prospects.
"We are past due in our re-
sponsibility to the environment. It
is imperative that this legislation
move quickly through the House
and Senate to the President'sdesk.
We can no longer delay the active
protection oi our environment
Valentine said.
The necessity to achieve quick
action has resulted in the majority
of the North Carolina Delegation
signing a letter to Chairman Sid-
ney Yates of the House Subcom-
mitteeon Interior Appropriations
This letter requests Yates' support
to include an one year morato-
rium on new oil and gas leasing on
the Outer Continental Shelf off the
coast of the state.
Inaddition, Valen tine and nine
other North Carolina House and
Senate Representatives sent a let-
ter to President Bush asking him
to include North Carolina in his
recently announced 10-year mora-
torium on the sale of new leases
for offshore oil and gas drilling on
the Outer Continental Shelf of the
U.S. coast. Valentine feels that if
we fail to protect the state from oil
and gas drilling activity our coast-
line could be in jeopardy.
Hospital approves rate increase
By Matt King
Staff Writer
The Pitt County Memorial
Hospital Board of Trustees recently
approved a $263 million budget
includ ing over a 14 percent overall
rate increase for 1991.
The increase in the cost of
medical care is being introduced
to partially offset an expected $82
million in unattainable funds.
"Half of that deficit is created
by people who cannot or will not
pay their medical bills, and the
other half is the result of under
funding from Medicare said Tom
Fortner, director of public infor-
mation for the ECU medical cen-
Fortner explains Medicare
decides how much of a patients
bill they will pay, not us. "Medi-
care pays the amount they see fit
and no more said Fortner.
The recent cuts in government
funding of Medicare have resulted
in a smaller percentage of cover-
age for it's claimants. "At Pitt
Memorial, more than 54 percent of
our patient population is covered
by Medicare. Shortfalls in these
programs have a significant im-
pact on our ability to control rate
increases said Kathy Barger,chief
financial officer al Pitt Memorial.
Fortner said that this is not an
isolated case. "1 fospitals around
the country are incorporating
similar cost increases, it's just
something that was inevitable
he said.
One thing that kept the in-
creases from happening sooner
was that the hospital receives $11
million annually from the state
because of its affiliation with the
ECU School of Medicine.
Dorm rats bring technology,
personalization to abodes
The hospital expects to gross
patient charges of approximately
$263 million in 1991. Only $181
million of that is expected to be
received because of the unattain-
able funds. The operating costs of
the hospital are projected to be
$179.8 million.
The $1 2 million expected to
be left over is usually put into a
fund that pays for the structural
up-keep of the hospital. Of every
dollar charged in 1991, only 69
cents will be attained the other 31
cents simply be written off
asuncollectible funds said
Hospital officials indicate that
thev are attempting to minimize
the impact of rising cost by finding
wavs to be more efficient.
In the last five years we have
implicated many new practices

Correct SPF can prevent
harmful sun damage
By Kristi Keiser
Student Health Service
As summer approaches, many
people are spending more time in
the sun. Unfortunately, the sun
can have many negativeeffectson
you if you don't use good sun
sense and take simple measures to
protect yourself.
Here are some tips to avoid
the dangerous effects of harmful
ultraviolet rays.
- When using oils, lotions, and
sunscreens be sure to use the cor-
rect SPF (Sun Protection Factor)
for your skin type. SPF on the tan-
ning product's label provides an
indication of how long you can
stay in the sun after applying it
and not become sunburned. For
example, if you use a tanning
product with an SPF of two, that
sunscreen will enable you to stay
in the sun two times as longas you
would normally be able to before
you would burn. (Make sure your
sunscreen is waterproof if vou plan
to be in the water.)
- To avoid dehydration drink
plenty of water or fruit juices while
sun bathing.
- Sunning times should be
gradually increased. Don't spend
three hours in the sun your first
day. Pace yourself.
- Avoid midday exposure at
first; the time during which the
sun is most intense is 10 a.m. to 2
- Sunburns can occur during
cloudy days, while you're in the
water, on the snow, at high alti-
tudes, and while you arc on the
- A number of drugs mav
increase your sensitivity to the sun.
These drugs include antibiotics,
oral contraceptives, antidepres-
sants, antihistamines and others.
Remember, evidence indi-
cates that overexposure to the sun
can be a real health hazard, caus-
ing painful sunburn and serious
long term effects such as wrin-
kling and skin cancer. So have fun
in the sun this summer, but re-
member to use your sun sense.

Dr Phyllis Nichols Horns,
professor and head of the Depart-
ment ol Parent-Child Nursing at
ECU, has been appointed dean of
the School of Nursing. Her ap-
pointment was confirmed July 13
bv the ECU Board of Trustees and
the University of North Carolina
Board of Governors.
Horns, 45, succeeds Dr. Emilie
Henning, who retired from the
administrative post in May after
eight years. 1 lenning will continue
with the ECU nursing school as
professor In the Department of
Parent-Child Nursing.
Dr AlastairConnell, ECU vice
chancellor for health sciences, said
that Horns "represents the highly
skilled, broadly trained type of
nursing administrator ideally
suited to lead the School of Nurs-
ing in preparing students for the
range of challenges facing the pro-
fession in the 1990s.
"Many of the health care is-
sues facing us depend for their
resolution on scientifically trained
but compassionate nursing pro-
fessional of Dr. Horns' stature
Connell said.
Horns, a Wilson, N.C. native
and an ECU alumna, first joined
the ECU nursing faculty in 1970 as
an instmctorof parent-child nurs-
ing. Over the next eight years she
moved through the academic
ranks to become associate profes-
sor. During the same period, she
continued to pursue clinical prac-
tice in maternal nursing at Pitt
County Memorial Hospital in
Greenville and in private medical
In 1979, she joined the gradu-
ate nursing faculty at the Univer-
sity of Alabama at Birmingham,
rising to become professor of nurs-
ing and assistant dean of the bac-
calaureate nursing program. She
was named to her current position
upon her return to ECU in 1988.
She began her nursing career
in 1963 after earning a nursing
diploma from the Wilson School
of Nursing, and served for a time
as a clinical nurse at North Caro-
lina Memorial Hospital in Chapel
Hill. She also holds a bachelor's
degree in nursing from ECU, a
master's degree in public health
from the University of North Caro-
lina at Chapel Hill, and a doctor-
ate in nursing from the University
of Alabama at Birmingham. Ir.
1975, she was certified as a nurse
practitioner by the University ot
Rochester School of Nursing in
New York
"We hope to continue to move
the School of Nursing forward in
concert with the rest of the univer-
sity and its strategic plan said
Horns. "Future goals for these hool
lncludedcveloping programs and
affiliations that will ultimately
result in the school's recognition
as the center for nursing educa-
tion, research and practice in rural

She also said she will work to
strengthen collaborative relation-
ships with colleagues at Pitt
Countv Memorial Hospital and to
develop programs that attract and
prepare nursing professionals "in
this time of acute need in the nurs
ing field
Her research interests include
parent-infant relationships, pri-
mary health care of childrenand

Jones looks to protect N.C. coast
North Carolina recently sighed a
breath of relief as Congressman Walter B.
Jones introduced legislation tor a one-vear
moritorium on offshore oil drilling. Al-
though the restraining order will only be
short-term, the step can be taken as a posi-
tive outlook on the government's approach
to the environment
On the contrary it seems funny that
the congressmen pushing this legislation
are from coastal states. Of course, their
constituents are the reason for their deci-
sion . but what about the other congressmen ?
Do they not believe that offshore drilling
will not damage the environment?
Granted, there are other problems
with the environment that our government
officials are deciding, like acid rain, defores-
tation, soil erosion and recycling. Offshore
drilling just does not seem to be associated
with that list. Whv? Offshore drilling not
only affects the coastal beauty, but spawn-
ing areas are destroyed, which could drive
the price oi fish up enormously.
Needless to say, the recent oil spills
off the Alaska and Texas coasts not only
destroyed wildlife and beauty, but the
credibility of offshore drilling companies
Besides, it is the responsibility of the state to
pay for the clean-up of an oil spill. Sure,
federal assistance is offered, but the re-
sponsibility ultimately falls on the state.
Along those same lines, why do the
states not have the right to sell a lease to
search or drill off their respective coast? The
government is picking the pockets of the
coastal states, while sending them a bill too.
Thank God for Congressman Jones!
Bush follows aides advice on successor
President George Bush wasted little time
replacing Justice William J. Brenner Jr. just hours
after Brenner's announcement Friday, the
President had a list of names from his top advi-
sors from which he could make a selection But
he chose to go with a little known 1 st U.S. Circut
C 'ourtof Appeals judge David H Souter,aswas
announced Monday
In what many are calling "the toughest
domes! tc decision" of t he President's reign, Bush
was forced to stray from the party's hard-line
conservative views to protect his future, and
regain a conservative ad vantage in the Supreme
Recent problems havecaused a decrease
in Bush's support, mainly because he went
against his campaign promise of no new taxes
Along with the problems of the Savings and
1 oan scandals, especially his son's involvement,
many Bush followers have had a change of
So what has our President done? On the
one hand he nominated someone that probably
will not get torn to shreds by the Senate Judi-
ciary Committee because no one knows where
he stands on kev issues But at the same time.
Stouter is someone who philosophically follow
Bush's ideals
The President chose to stay away from
extremists like Robert Bork, a 1988 candidate
that former President Ronald Reagan nominated.
Just as it was with Bork, one of the most important
impacts of Souter's appointment will be his
stand on many of the national issues. The chance
of an overturn of Roe vs. Wade, a 1973 decision
that allowed women the choice of abortion, has
many people questioning his nomination.
However, Bush listened to his aides recommen-
dations that the abortion issue should not be the
catalyst of his decision.
The Washington Post reported that Sen-
ate Minority Leader Robert J Dole, R-Kan said
the President does not owe conservatives a
victory on the abortion issue since he fouled up
the no new taxes campaign promise. what
President Bush owes the country � I think
that's the important thing, not any group, liberals
or conservatives, or pro-life or pro-choice � is
an outstanding nominee who will be on the
bench for some time
Souter's rulings on national issues are
limited, therefore more difficult to attack. But
lobbiest are calling for his stance on many issues
before he gets theokay from the Senate Judiciary
Ralph Neas, director of the Leadership
Conference on Civil Rights told USA TODAY:
"The civil rights community knows very little
about Judge Souter. With so much at stake, we
will carefully examine his recordand judicial
Abortion activists are also calling for
Souter's stand as weli. But the candidate was
reluctant to answer questions, opting to wait for
the conformation proces.
The door may have opened for many of
the country's laws to be challenged. It is a relief
to know that President Bush took Dole's advice
to make a good decision. He did not choose an
extremist, but a candidate that very wellmay be
as solid as former Justice Brenner.
Although the President made a quick
decision, it looks to be a good one. Let's hope
this will bring back some of those lost supporters.

Giving someone a gift from the
heart can make life rewarding
By Dinah Eng
Canned News Service
I love giving people presents.
I hate figuring out what to
give Ihem.
Some people .ire easy. My
sister Linda will read any romance
novel published. My fnend Hank
collects college mugs and Mary-
land memorabilia.
But most of my friends are not
lhat easy lo please. While we may
know people very well, there's
somethingabout buying things for
others that's never totally a snap.
When looking at an item, it
may strike us as perfect for
someone. But beware giving the
lime type gift over and over.
The year I l(xk up golf, 1 went
crazy buying golf clothes, colored
golf balls, golf club covers, you
name it. Naturally, my sisters, who
live in Houston and don't see me
lhat often, divided I'd enjoy golf-
themed presents for my birthday.
Five vears and countless golf
paperweights later, thev were still
going strong. 1 ast Christmas, it
was a bag ol tees ami Paddington

Divorce rates have risen dra-
matically as the morals portrayed
on television have declined. For
c cry two marriages in 1990, there
will be one di von. e. The blame for
these statistics rests, at least
partilally,on the shoulders of those
who produce the media's im-
moral, ungodly programming.
The Bible says: "Or do you not
know that the unrighteous shall
not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived; neither fomi-
cators nor idolaters nor adulter-
ers, nor effeminate, nor homo-
sexuals, nor thieves, nor the cov-
etous, nor drunkards, nor revil-
ers, nor swindlers shall inherit the
kingdom of God (I Corinthians
Yet television gives glory,
fame, prestige and acceptance
given to all these types of people.
Too much on television pro-
motes or tolerates that which Qxi
forbids. The standard of marriage
that God has set declares a hus-
band must love his wife as Christ
That's when I decided to say
Many times, we simply smile
and say thanks for a gift when the
truth is we hate it. We don't
want to hurt people's feelings, so
we tend to say nothing.
The solution, of course, is to
be honest and say what you like
and don't like about a present. For
me, it is a measure of how close a
friendship is when you can say
such things.
My friend Christine loves
sweaters, and most of her clothes
are dark colors browns and
blacks, lst Christmas, I bought
her a hand-knit black print
She regretfully told me that
she could not accept the present
because she's decided she has too
many dark colors in her wardrobe,
and is throwing out everything
that's black Along with a bright
new wardrobe, she said, came a
bright, happy outlook for 1990.
So I exchanged the black
sweater for a pink camisole. She
washappy with her gift, and 1 was
pleased that she'd be wearing
something she liked.
The best gifts, of course, are
not measured in material value.
One of my favorite presents came
from my sister Lillian when she
was nearly five.
It was the first year she un-
derstood that people gave each
other presents at Christmas. Join-
ing in the fun, she ran through the
house, secretly gathering her
goodies and wrapping them her-
When it came time to open
presents, we found that she had
given very practical items � half-
sharpened pencils and slightly
used erasers. My gift wasa broken
plastic ruler.
Several years later, when I
went away to college, my sister
Jane gave me a gift so that I
wouldn't forget her�a pinkcloth
butterfly on a dime store chain,
her favorite necklace. I still have it.
In the long run, the only gift
we really have to give isourselves.
Sometimes, the gift takes the
form of help or support when a
loved one is in trouble. Sometimes,
it means allowing someone we
love to feel hisor her pain without
trying to make things better. That
may be the most difficult act, and
part of the most precious gift, of
all � the gift of friendship.
Friendship, after all, is the one
present that is alive and ever
When a friend sees the best of
what you hope is inside yourself,
it is a mirror that is truly priceless.
I received such a present re-
cently. It came from my friend
Christine, who wrote, "I want to
do something in your honor and I
think what might mean the most
(to you) would be to love and
nurture the children.
"So to that end, I have con-
tributed a shopping cart full of
baby food, formula and other ne-
cessities to the Houston 'Feed the
Hungry' campaign � I can think
of nothing more in keeping with
your purity of spirit and selfless
giving than that
Her gift was not only a won-
derful present to me, it was a
beautiful reflection of the love for
all inside her.
Whenever we give from the
heart, the gift is always perfect.

Nothing in the Bible says men and

Television, as any information

given about marriage and sexual

Based on research and scien-
tific data, I am unable to prove a
correlation between television
presentations of marriage and the
abundance of unhappy marriages
in this country. Nevertheless, I am
convinced beyond any doubt that
such a correlation exists.
The content of media presen-
tations of marriage deviates so
extremely from the marriage God
has ordained that there can not be
any blend or compromise made
by viewers. Either they agree that
God's standards for marriage are
right, or they allow society's and
the media's standards to be suffi-
Unfortunately, I see little hope
of a solution to this problem in the
immediate future. People have
standards for relationships lower
than God's. God does not grade
sin on a curve; in His eyes, people
are righteous or unrighteous.

those men � the very people who
produce television's content, and

to know more about Souter's
record as New Hampshire attor-
ney general.

Soon after coming to CDC,

The movie lias all the slick

ECU is continuing its fight against drugs The
North Carolina Board of Governors approved a
mandatory drug testing program for all schools in
the svstem on Friday, July 13.
ECU'S athletic teams have been practicing a
mandatory drug testing program since 1987. ECU
and ASU were the first schools in the state to require
athletes to take a drug test. The decision from the
Board of Governors merely added some legal safe-
"Each athlete will receive written notice prior to
each test, and before an athlete is subjected to more
serious sanctions such as a lengthy suspension or a
loss of eligibility they will be entitled to a hearing
said University Attorney Ben Irons.
There were some safeguards prior to the deci-
sion bv the Board of C .overnors, but they were not as
elaborate as the (Mies that are now being imple-
UNC-Chapel Hill's main reason for not wanting
to have mandatory tests for their athletes was that
athletes are students and every student does not
have to take a drug test.
"There are three reasons why athletes are re-
quired to take a drug test said Irons. Drugs may
increase the risk of mental or physical injury when
used in conjunction with very strenuous physical
activities ot conditioning programs.
Secondly,certain drugs may temporarily increase
an athletes performance thereby giving that particu-
lar athlete an unfair edge in competition.
Lastly, intercollegiate athletes may become
highly publicized role models in the community,
and any involvement with drugs may lead to a
negativeinfluenceonvoung people. Also, an athlete's
� use of drugs is liable to damage the reputation of the

athletes on how the test is to be administered and the
specimen is collected under visual observation be-
cause of the possibility the specimen may be tam-
pered with said Irons.
If drugs are found in the urine specimen of the
athlete on the first occasion a confidential meeting
will be set in order to evaluate the nature and extent
of drug involvement The amount of counseling and

The University of Honda says it's
guilty of major rules violations for
the second time in six years but
insists a compliance program
designed to prevent problems with
the NCAA is working.
The school on Monday re-
leased copies of its response to
allegations stemming from a 15-
month investigation of the Gators'
football and basketball programs.
Officials acknowledged nine
of 10 allegations, including six
considered major, but denied an
accusation that the infractions
demonstrate a lack of institutional
control over football and basket-
ball at the Southeastern Confer-
ence school.
University president John V.
Lombardi said the information
made public Monday, three days
after Florida presented it to the
NCAA, clearly shows the school
has adequate checks and balances
built into the compliance program
"although from time to time
people will stray from the straight
and narrow
Lombardi emphasized that
swift corrective action, including
the ouster of former football coach
Galen Hall and former basketball
coach Norm Sloan, is a sign Flor-
ida wants to do things right.
As repeat violators, Florida is
a candidate for the NCAA's so-
called death penal ty�the tempo-
rary suspension of either or both
sports � but Lombardi doesn't
expect such severe punishment.
Florida was placed on proba-
tion for two years in 1984 and the
football program is still feeling the
effects of scholarship restrictions
imposed as part oi the sanctions.
The team also wasprohibued from
appearing on live television and
barred from bowl games in 1984
and 1985.
Lombardi said some kind of
financial penalty, such as return-
ing some money earned from the
NCAA basketball tournament,
might be appropriate in this case
but not sanctions like those im-
posed in 1984.
The major infractions ac-
knowledged by the university this
time are:
� Hall paid improper salary
supplements totaling $21,000 to
two assistant coaches.
� Hall arranged transporta-
tion and provided cash to help a
player pay a delinquent child
support debt.
� Former assistant football
coach Larry Kirksey lent a player
$100 that came from a booster.
� Sloan provided an airline
ticket for ex-Honda star Vernon
Maxwell to attend a summer bas-
ketball camp in Boston.
� Maxwell retained an agent
during his junior season and
should have been ineligible to
participate in the NCAA tourna-
ment in 1987 and 1988.
� Sloan allowed a prospec-
tive student-athlete's mother to
use the return portion of the
recruit's airline ticket during an
on-campus visit.
Hall and Sloan resigned last
October after an internal investi-
gation confirmed the violations.
The next step in the case for Flor-
ida is an appearance before the
NCAA infractions committee.

ECU won't be excused
The Amalgamated Press
The UNC Board of Governors on
Friday refused to grant ECU an ex-
emption froma mandatorydrug-test-
ing policy for squirrels.
Reading to the press a prepared
statement � which, curiously, was
written before the board had even
voted � chairman Robert "Complete
Idiot And Damn Proud Of It" Smith
warned of the dangers inherent in
letting various campuses make up
their own minds.
"This problem is so important that
we cannot allow it to be dealt with in
several different ways hesaid. "After
all, if we allowed each school in the
UNC system to make up itsown mind
on the matter, then someof them might
calmly make rational and informed
decisions which took into account the
need to protect individual rights, and
then where would we be?"
out-of-context statistics that prove nothing
The Board of Governors approved
a mandatory drug-testing policy for
the tiny animals after a scandal at
N.C. State University that involved
accusations that squirrels were using
theircheek pouches to smuggledrugs
forcampusdrug dealers. But the Board
of Trustees of ECU, in a passing spasm
of good sense, pointed out the consti-
tutional questions raised by such a
policy, not to mention its sheer idiocy.
However, Smith defends testing
squirrels on the grounds that "every-
one looks up to them
"You know they7 re cute, they're
fuzzy, so people like them Smith
continues. "If we let squirrels getaway
with using drugs, then pretty soon
even stupid people would notice that
you can use drugs and still function
normally, and then they might realize
that the government and anti-drug
groups like Partnership for a Drug-
Free Amerika have been shamelessly
lying to them for several years now,
and they might start to think for them-
selves and get informed and gather
data from unbiased sources, and then
where would we be?"
But Lou Cid, the only member of
the board to vote against the policy,
sharply disagrees with Smith.
"Now, I'm against drug use Cid
cautions. 'Totally against it. All drugs.
Even aspirin.
"But they're squirrels, for God's
sake. We're talking about testingsir-
rels. I mean, doesn't this strike any-
body but me as dumb?"
Cid was about to say more when
Smith and the other members of the
Board of Governors leaped on him
and sealed his head up in a big metal
sphere, kind of like what they did to
that guy in The Man In the Iron Mask,
only without the breathing holes.
"It's for hisown good, of course
said Smith, panting. "Obviously he's
been listening to pro-drug propa-
ganda, and it's our responsibility to
protect him from that. Think about it:
if we didn't protect him from hearing
the other side of the issue, he might
become even more taken in by it than
he already was, and he might start to
think it made sense,and then he might
pass the information along to the rest
of us, and we might open our tiny
little minds to a new idea or two, and
then where would we be?"
Outside the hall, the policy was
also being opposed by several pro-
legalization groups who showed up
to mill around, chant whatever every-
body else waschantingand wave signs
at television cameras. After a few
hours of chanting catchy slogans like
"Let the wildlifelive the wild life the
groups eventually became so caught
up in the fun of chanting that they
forgot what they were there for and
wandered away aimlessly.

they may still have had small versions
of them several thousand years after

Jesse speaks!
By Chippy Bonehead
ECU Today
Incumbent North Carolina Sena-
tor Jesse Helms spoke today at a rally
held in the rather poorly designed
bandshell located at the Greenville
Town Commons. The bandshell,
which is far from acoustically flaw-
less, nevertheless conveyed Helms'
message loudly and clearly to his
constituents, whoalready devote their
lives to blindly following the insane
policies they read from his lips.
The rally began as Helms' cam-
paign manager Pansy Mapplethorpc
introduced the entire right-wing
component of the Greenville City
Council, a task which took a good two
days to finish properly.
Mapplethorpe, who is of course
in no way related to that awful, de-
generate photographer Robert Map-
plethorpe, except they have the same
las. name, and c f course there was
that unfortunate incident in the all
male boarding school when he was
15, but the less said about that the
better, introduced the City Council as
"One of the last bastions of truly right-
thinking individuals in this Godfor-
saken liberal hellhole
Each member of the City Council
then got up and introduced their
families by name, and then deline-
ated their heritage back to the Civil
War, starting with paternal great-
grandparents and working their way
down to possible future descend en ts
who will one day come into their own
as great Republican statesmen and
censors. This took approximately
another eleven days.
Each surviving relative then got
up and introduced their pets, related
the animals' breeding lines and en-
dorsed their favorite brand of pet food.
After the opening introductions were
completed and the rally was firmly in
the throes of a warm Christian atmos-
phere that will never tolerate such
blasphemous ideas as legalized abor-
tions, flag desecration and independ-
ent thought, the relatives turned the
podium back over to Mapplethorpe,
reintroducing him for the benefit of
the more severely senile attendees.
Mapplethorpe then introduced
PittCounty's Republican Party Chair-
man, Willie Winnagain. Winnagain
espoused the many fine qualities Mr.
Helms embodied, such as his persis-
tence in photocopying obscene art and
mailing it to every congressman's
family to enlist support for his efforts
in preserving decency in the Ameri-
can home, and his unwavering efforts
to keep every television and radio
station in North Carolina saturated
with slanderous campaign advertise-
Finally, Winnagain introduced
Helms, falling to his knees in utter
rapture as the senator took the stage.
Unable to bear his godlike presence,
Winnagain evaporated in yuH of
foul-smeiiinj; -moke.
Helms kept his speech shut t, since

What have these cookies got that other cookies don't?
Cholesterol. And that's not all.
That's right. If you've spent long hours at the local supermarket
looking for a box of cookies that didn't have a big ugly
"NO CHOLESTEROL" label on it. your search is over.
Because Cookie-lesterols are chock full of stuff that so many lab
rats have given their pitiful lives to prove can kill you:
cholesterol, fat. carbohydrates, sodium, caffeine. Nutra-Sweet and
so on. And calories. There's more calories in here than you can
shake a medium-sized stick at. We're talkln' your entire
RDA of calories in each cookie.
So don't just reach for a cookie.
Reach for a Cookie-lesterol.

Curing reaper madness
lowers nation's death rate
The Amalgamated Press
Why is the nation's death rate
declining? Because of better nutrition
and medical care, say some. But there's
another reason, according to scien-
tists at ECU'S medical school: Death
himself is lightening up.
With the benefit of psychological
counselingand lithium treatment. Dr.
Goctht Faust says the Grim Reaper
has become merely the Seasonally
Depressed Keeper.
"We're trying to get him to be-
come a more 90s Death, a more car-
ing and open Death a kinder, gen-
tler Death, if you will explains Faust.
"A Death who feels okay about him-
self, and whodoesn' t feel like he needs
to dress up in a cloak and kill people
in order to prove his manhood. We've
still got .i long wav to go, of course,
h it w. n't muic because we're
aigin ima bundle
Dr. Dee Mise Thanatos, who has
.ilso worked on the case, concurs with
Faust's assessment
"We really are charging him a
bundle Thanatos concurs. "An arm
and a leg, in fact. Of course, at first
there were some problems with bill-
ing because the Post Office won't
deliver mail addressed to 'Hades' or
him pay cash now, so everything's all
right on that end.
"I tell you, though he continues,
chuckling, "he was real pissed when
he found out BlueCross doesn't cover
supernatural entities
Those matters aside, the doctors
say Death has come a long way trom
his former repressed, violent self.
"He's made wonderful progress
Faust says. "We're currently working
on getting him to recognize that he
just carries the scythe around as a
kind of security blanket, a way of
keeping the world at bay. But I think
we can persuade him that he can face
the world without it. If we can't, of
.ourse, it's elt r -shock therapv
"And before you know it Tha-
natos confidently predicts, "he'll be
the Happy-Go-Lucky Reaper and
everything will be fine

New York police arrest'Yaleman'
By Chippy Bonehcad
ECU Today
Gerald Wrong, accused by New
York City police of being the "Yale-
man" who has terrorized the city's
women for the last few weeks by lock-
ing them into their clothes with Yale�
brand locks, insists he is innocent.
The real Yaleman is a Harvard
Law School dropout born on the is-
land of Ikky-Ikky-Ptang-Ptang, where
all women who wear provocative
dresses are forced into small rooms,
covered in toucan guano and forced
to listen to an endless loop tape of
morally degenerate 2 Live Crew
songs Wrong's attorney I. Beleevem
said Tuesday.
"My client was actually trying to
apprehend the real Yaleman when
police arrested him as he locked a
young nubile redhead into her leather
mini-skirt Beleevem explained.
"He was not actually locking her
into her outfit, .per se the lawyer
said. "Rather, he was testing out a
new form of chastity lock which can
be opened only by the woman when
she is sexually aroused by Mr.
A hearing is scheduled for Thurs-
day, though Beleevem is trying to get
his client arraigned sooner. "You have
to understand, Mr. Wrong is a con-
cerned man on a spiritual mission to
protect attractive womenand get them
to have copious amounts of sex with
him, not to lock them into clothes he
cannot remove Beleevem said.
Wrong could not be contacted for
an interview, since Bellevue doctors
have him under sedation as they try to
discern the exact longitude and lati-
tudeof thecontroversial island, where
they plan to spend a much-needed
Beleevem also commented that
the NYPD had only "sketchy" cir-
cumstantial evidence at best. "Just
because my client has a history of
sexual offenses and is the night watch-
man at the local Yale� factory where
he would have easy access to thou-
sands of Yale� brand locks, which
come in many handy varieties, is no
reason to consider him a prime sus-
pect in this case.
" have complete faith in my
client he went on. "His theory about
a disgruntled Harvard Law School
dropout has the ring of truth to it.
What better way to get back at his
former school than by committing a
series of heinous crimes using a prod-
uct that bears the name of his ex-
school's most well-known rival, even
though the school and the product are
in no way affiliated?"
NYPD captain Bulova Helms,
who is in no way affiliated with the
esteemed North Carolina senator Jesse
Helms, except that the captain does
smoke a lot, thus giving the tobacco
companies a good portion of his yearly
income and thereby indirectly con-
tributing to Helms' campaign to make
the United States a safe place for de-
cent, hard - worki ng Christ ia n f oik wi th
nothing better to do with their lives
but smoke a lot and pry into everyone
else's business, had this to say:
"Mr. Wrong gave us a statement
that indicated he was indeed at the
scene of most of the Yaleman's crimes
and that he did own a number of
Yale� brand locks. While this was
certainly more than enough evidence
forus to break intohis house, ripapart
his furniture searching for drugs, ille-
gal weapons and bootleg copies of 2
Li veCrewcassettes, wedidn't have to
since we caught him in the act.
Course, we may still 'search' his
place, just for the hell of it. I haven't
had a good search and seizure since
we caught that guy in Queens with
theGeorgeand Barbara Bush acid hits
last month. All we had on him was an
accidental wirctapon hisphone where
he told someone he thought the Presi-
dent was a big doo-doo head.
"And we shredded his place. We
searched his dog's anus and found
clear traces of fecal matter in it. Don't
tell me that search wasn't justified.
Who knows what we might find in
Wrong's place?"
Government unveils education plan
The Amalgamated Press
A model curriculum to tell young
children and young adults � from
the cradle up to graduation from col-
lege � that drugs are bad, bad,
naughty and bad was unveiled by the
federal government. It will be sent to
every teacher and administrator in
every school and university in the
Calling the plan "the next best
thing to hypnopaedia Education
Secretary Lauren Cojones listed the
major points for the assembled re-
porters, who, if it weren't for this
conveniently timed press conference,
would have been out digging up fur-
ther evidence that Neil Bush deliber-
ately drove the Silverado S&L into the
ground for fun and profit. The
curriculum'smain message: "Nobody
uses drugs, nobody at all. Nobody.
Those people who do use drugs, who,
naturally, don't exist, are always
immediately driven completely insane
and rob, kill, plunder and loot, and
are therefore responsible for all the
crime committed in the country, even
though they don't exist said Cojones.
"So don't go trying drugs for your-
self, or you might discover that we're
lying through our damn teeth.
"The curriculum teaches you how
to claim you're standing up for what
you believe and resisting peer pres-
sure by refusing to use drugs, even
while theprogramavowedly uses peer
pressure to try to get you not to use
drugs continues Cojones. "It teaches
you how to build the healthy self-
esteem needed to sublimate your own
identity and freedom to what we tell
you your friends think.
"Basically Cojones told the
cheering, utterly impartial reporters,
"this curriculum teaches kids how to
be just as ignorant and hypocritical
about this issue as their elders
Cojones later revealed that the
administration is looking into the
possibility of implanting tiny tape
players in women's wombs from the
moment of conception, which will
play anti-drug messagesover and over
and over for the entire nine months
from conception to delivery.
"What the hell shrugged
Cojones. "It's just the next logical
extension of what we're already
But Cojones cautioned reporters
not to tell their readers that the federal
government would mandate that
schools adopt the proposed educa-
tional plan.
"We do not have the authority to
impose curriculum Cojones said.
"That's entirely the province of indi-
vidual school boards. Of course, we
retain the right to cut off federal fund-
ing for any irresponsibleschool whose
curriculum doesn't exactly meet our
standards, kind of like what we did
when we blackmailed states into rais-
ing their drinkingages to 21 by threat-
ening to withhold federal highway
funds, but it's entirely up to them
Voiza Reason, a history teacher at
Generic Inner-City High School,
thinks the administration should
"focus just a bit more on addressing
the socioeconomic factors that cause
drug use and will continue to cause
drug use no matter what we do, and
focus just a bit less on trying to make
the public education system a propa-
ganda vehicle for the government
But Quisling Lackey, Generic
High's principal, surreptitiously in-
jected Reason with an unidentified
substance and then ordered him to
report for a mandatory, completely
randomly applied drug test.
Warning: Do NOT carry this boxed section
into a crowded theater, since it and the various
sacrilegious satirical statements in this document
may violate the First Amendment, according to
noted Constitutional scholar David McCreary.
Just a friendly reminder.
