Healthy diet reduces
risk of heart disease
Crime Scene
By Amy Clapp
Peer Health Educator
Many doctors, health profes-
sionals and others are constantly
speaking ol healthy eating and
nutrition What exactly is healthy
eating and what it means to you?
Healthy eating means taking
control of your eating habits and
following speeific guidelines set
forth bv organizations such as the
American Heart Association
In keeping with these guide-
lines you can lower your body fat;
reduce sour risk for certain can-
cers, such as colonrectal cancer
(the most frequently diagnosed
malignancy) and lower vour cho-
lesterol and blood pressure, thus
reducing sour risk for heart dis-
When you are ready to change
your diet, the first thing to do is
learn what tennis to eat in mod-
eration The first would be food
with a high fat content such as red
meat,gravies, fried foods, and high
fat dairy products like ice cream
and cheese
In addition to watching out
tor fat. it is also a good idea to
reduce salt intake High sodium
can lead to high blood pressure
Voods containing a lot of salt
include hotdogs. pickles, soups,
and "fast foods
last of all, steer clear of foods
with a high sugar content such as
soda, syrup, and candy to keep
away unnecessary and unwanted

Another aspect of nutritious
eating is in the way you prepare
the food you eat. For instance,
when preparing meat, trim away
excess fat and skin and then trs
broiling or baking instead of Irs
Whentrving foods, use a
nonstick cooking spray instead ol
butter or margarine Also, since
there is more than enongh sod in m
in most ot the foods we eat, it is a
good idea to lease out the salt
when preparing food.
Now sou mas be reading this
article thinking to yourself, It
sounds like eating healths means
you can't have any foods that .u
tually taste good" Not!
There arc many substitutes for
fatty foods that are ust as satists
ing. fry poultry, fish or pasta in
stead of red meat; yogurt or ice
milk in place ot ice cream; and low
fat or skim milk as opposed to
regular milk
Deciding to change sour eat
ing habits tor a healthier was ol
lifeisa big step It will not beeasj
especially at the beginning It . ill
take a lot of planning and a solid
commitment to yourself
Expect temptations and set
backs, but don't give up In the
long run the benefits will definitely
outweigh the drawb.u ks
A long and healths life awaits
you, so go tor if

Celebration causes
violence, damage
A homecoming celebration at
South Dakota state I niversit) got
outot hand last weekend when an
estimated 1,000 people roamed the
diunpus setting bonfires nd
throwing rocks and bottles
Police arrested about 50people
on charges ranging from aggra-
vated assault to intentional dam
age to property
The violence started late Fri-
dav when several ott-campus
louse parties grew and spread out
into the street.

said University police officials
Police, administrators and
black Creeks said that the) were
concerned about the frequent a ts
ot violence that have plagued the
black Greek-sponsored parties in
Great Hall of the Union.
The campus police feel that
the organizations who sponsor the
parties should be responsible tor
the guests and what happens.
"The police should not be to-

Porreca said.
Flooding causes
few problems
A broken water pipe caused
flooding between Davis Librar)
and the student Union at UNK

in little damage to the Union
The flooding left two floors ot

Harnson was involved in a

problem stems from last year's re-

In a letter sent to the Appro

asking that the Committee make

ECANS 1990-1991 budget request

Simply entering several
buildings on campus is also a diffi-

little or no use ot their hands.
Silverthorhe said the auto-
matic door buttons are placed m a
preeanouslocation behind thedoor,
so a chair user must hit the button
ind quickly swing inside the door.
Silverthorne said that St Andrews
college had grocer store-like
doors, that were much easier to use
thanK I Sautomaticdoorbuttons.
According to Rowe, the but-
tons are very sensitive and easv to
use by most disabled students. Re-
ferring to the grocery store-like
doors, Rowe said that he was ad-
vised not to use those because they
op - for everybody and that causes
a traffic problem for the disabled
who need to use them.
ECU campus is not the only
place where Silverthorne has en-
countered limited access. He finds

Sociological woes still hamper minorities

rican American families; 43 per-
cent were headed bv women and
si percent bv men More than
halt ot all black children are born
into poverty This is a perplexing
problem that must be solved
The Rodney Stark sociology
textbook provides some insight
into the causes and results of the
Harriette P McAdoo con-
cluded in "The American Women
1990-91 A status Report" that,
"family structure plays an impor-
tant role in the economic situation
of families in the United States.
Whether a family consists oi a problem. In his chapter on gender ofyoungWackmendiefromacci

mal ratio ot 103 to I06ma!esbom
for every female, the ratio is nearly

poor nutrition and health care
Blacks also have a higher infant
mortality rate and a larcenumber

pact on the economic well-being

Family breakdown is a
problem that is particularly trou-
bling within the Afncan-Amen-
can community In 1987, married-
couple families accounted for
slightly half of the 7 2 million Af-
ettects of sex ratios or the number
of males to females in a society
When there is a lower num-
ber of females than males, the val-
ues imposed upon them are more
traditional and restrictive When
thereare more females than males,
the values become much more
relaxed and liberal. According to
table 12-2 of the Stark Sociology
text, the number of black males
per 100 females has gone from
103.4 in 1820 to 89.6 in 1980.
Stark cites several causes for
Stark also states that con-
trary to popular belief, the black
family was not broken up bv sla-
very, and sexual promiscuity was
not the norm among blacks on
southern plantations A closer
examination of the statistics will
show that cultural assimilation
and increased prosperity may be
the cause of the breakdown of the
black family as well as the general
moral decline of the African-

made concerning tire hazards.
almost all ol which reportedl)

from simple cigarette smoke to

So main alarms are inves-

concerning our organization to
at least insure that your infor-
mation is accurate 'he article

tamed information that was
inaccurate and that has set us
back in our efforts to increase

Our monies requested tor
travel were not just for onecon-
vention. The total figure was
for attending two national and
two state conventions
Regarding the convention
in Nashville, Tenn we at-
tended that convention last
spring The onlv reason more
students did not attend was
because the convention was
very close to final exams 1 he

SGA did provide funds tor
motel and pre-registration tecs,
however, theair farecosts were
paid by the individual students
with the help of an individual
in the School of Nursing who
greatly supports ECANS.
The convention this spring
is in San Antonio, Texas and at
least four students have already
expressed an interest in attend-
ing We also will be attending
the state convention in C har

expect at least 15 members to
attend this convention. The rea-

Around that time ECU expanded from a teacher

Office of News and Communication Services has
emerged out of that need.
One of the main functions of the office is prepanng

One wav to ensure news releases are used is to

,o meSrtMrt�EK M mm Throughout, one ,s led to believe Vonnegut wants us to take a
humorous look at ourselves
A woman stops by her local grocery store on a rainy afternoon after
work rhe store is not very crowded, but she still has to park a distance
awa Maneuvering her way out of her car, she starts toward the enhance
At the dtvr she pauses soaking wet. and watchesa man walk tohiscar.
Heis parked in a handicapped parkingspace she catches his eve tor a bnet
moment as a raindrop rolls down her cheek. The man turns away quickly
and getsinto hiscar I le isdry she roflsher wheek hair around, shakes her
head sighs and proceeds into the store
This scenario is very common to the disabled Artk les m ritten about
the problem of handicapped parking state that violations run in excess of

The disabled are forced to tend for themselves. In places like Georgia
for example, there is a group known as the "Quad Squad quad alter

In C ,roen ille. efforts are also home made to alleviate the problem Dr.
I inda Mired a psychology professor at ECU, decided she wanted to
document illegal parking after being in a scenario similar to the one
mentioned above.
Mbed'sresearch consists 14 twi i controlled experiments and a survey.

many violations occurred. Thev found that the highest were in lot (a) and
the lowest lot (c). Abo, when it rains, violations go up, and younger people
are the highest number of violators.
Allred said that after she saw the findings she started looking at the
signs denoting the spaces as the possible problem. To study this the group
made skms they could place n front ot parking places. The signs were
yellow with black lettering reading, Warning this space watched bv
concerned citizens.
"Violationsdropped to 22 percentand stayed down, butassoonas we
took it awav it started to rise again " she said
Mired said she did not believe it was the sign that controlled the
decrease "Any changein the sign will work, it: is probably the thought that
someone is watching them that is in control
In the last part of her research, Allred made up questionnaires.
wanted to see what kind of people are violators The data revealed that
young socially affiliated males were the most frequent violators. Also,
people who smoked and drank a lot were more likely to illegally park.

play for one vear as the result of a lb-month inves-
tigation into its recruiting practices, a university
spokeswoman said today
1 he NC AA also is putting the lllmi on probation
tor three years and placing some restrictions on
recruiting for two years, said udy Rowan. She de-
clined to give details
The Chicago Tribune reported that the school will
be banned entirely from off-campus recruiting for
the first vear It said, quoting unidentified sources,
that the Iliini also will be prohibited from having
paid visits bv recruits to its campus during that first
The school also will be limited to awarding only
two scholarships in each of the first two seasons ot
the probation, Rowan said
The university's recruitment in lu89 ot prep
basketball star Deon Thomas touched off the inves-
tigation bv the NC A A into charges the school offered
cash and cars to kev plavers. The university main-
tained theevidenceciid not substantiate thosecharges,
but said its own investigation revealed some minor
infractions. Rowan said the NCAA investigation
concurred with that finding.
"The university has been cleared of all the seri-
ous allegations in the official inquiry Rowan said.
Alter our own long extremelv long � and
