1 hypertension, or high blood

diseases in the United States.
Sometimes referred to as the "si-
lent killer it is responsible for
one million deathseach war, either
directly or indirectly.
I ligh blood pressure is termed
the "silent killer" sinceany one can
have the disease and it can go
undetected tor years.
Blood pressure is the force of
blood against the walls ol the ar
tones I his force is c reated by the
he.irt, which pumps blood
throughout the body
Blood pressure is measured
by .u instrument known as .t
sphygmomanometer, or blood
pressure cuff, and .1 stethoscope
1 he individual taking the blood
pressure reads two numbers, tor
example 12080.
I he top number is known .is
the systolic pressure This is the
amount et force recorded when
vour he.irt beats 1 he systolic
reading is normally the higher
The bottom number is dias-
tolic pressure. DiastoHc pressure
is usually the lower number rep
resenting the force recorded when
the heart is at rest between beats.
"Normal" blood pressure
readings for people under IS are
usually below 12080 millimeters
of mercury (mm H) Regardless
of age, the higher the blood pres-
sure rises above 14090 mm Hg,
the greater the chances for car-
diovascular problems
Some of the high risk groups
tor developing high blood pres-
sure are .is follows:
� ll.u ks are twice as likely to
develop high blood pressure than
other ethnic groups
�Smoking raises blood pres

Student apathy allows bad policies to exist
It looks like students are again going
to remain silent as university officials
implement policies that directly affect
them. Nothing new: we students at 1VI
have traditionally been that way. Students'
priorities are reversed and our nun-ale is at
an ali-time low.
For some time now, we have know n
the severity oi the budget crunch, includ
Lng the potential effects on our edu atioi
But why did we just sit back and l I our
library hours get shortened and i lass -
cut without any resistance? Are we la; oi
is it that we just don't care.1
It seems the only time we students
Stand up and demand attention is when
our party time gets the axe. Remember thr
march toCity I all last year? W $W3( rtts
rallied and let city offic ials know how we
felt about the Tar River incident and the
City Council's decision to terminate tl i
annual downtown Halloween partv
Eventually, it paid off.
The Citv Coun il established a noise
ordinance committee composed of cit)
and student leaders that have compro-
mised on plan tor noise permits. The re-
action from city officials and students have
both been positive; proving that wl i
conflicts arise, our opinions are taken se-
riously and establish grounds for change.
But what about education? Where are
the rallies and marches? It's as though we
condoned these cuts. Are we not telling
our administrators "cut our education all
you want, but don't you dare touch i :
parties It's obvious, when our education
starts to suffer, we do nothing.
But the problem of students failing to
voice disapproval is not unique to ECU.
Fortunately, other schools in the Univer-
sity oi North Carolina system are moving
to get their voices heard and getting
some results.
Students at Appalachian State Uni-
versity have come together in an effort u
prevent the building of a $24 million Stu-
dent Activities Center. These concerned
students felt that the money should be
applied to academics rather than to a new
gvmnasium especially since $14 mil-
lion ol the S2i million cost was to come
from student fees.
I NC Chapel 1 lill students have also
come together, .is they have done repeat-
edly. (Controversy recently arose over stat-
ues that were erected in front of the student
libran I hestatues were to symbolize stu-
rtts, and what they stand tor. Some call
the statues sexist, others racist, but the
poii ' is that the students are concerned
I the ire voi ing their opinions.
do these other students want to
be heardPossibly to make a difference in
� slacking educational system.
The bottom line is that we students
need to voice our disapproval. We all need
to learn 'now to voice an opinion and to
u hi m t( i address it.
TheStudentC lovernment Association
should make available to students how to
� involved in the university's decision-
m iking process. These legislators are our
ted leaders, and their priority should
be for the student body as a whole, not
certain organizations.
Recently, legislators passed a resolu-
ti . ailing for university officials to re-
consider oyner Library's hours. Thev
wrote a letter to Chancellor Richard Eakin
and Vi( e( Chancellor for Student Life Alfred
Matthews with the resolution.
We students should have an opportu-
nity to voice an opinion prior to a major
dei ision by officials concerning university
policies (such as shortening the library's
trs), rather than complain about it later.
I ike the noise ordinance situation, a com-
promise can be achieved.
University officials are not totally at
fault here. It's up to the students to get
involved. In the absence of student in-
volvement, students have no one to blame
but themselves when university officials
pass detrimental policies.
The solution is for students to get
involved go to meetings, write letters,
etc. Without input from students, our
edu( ation and the education of those who
follow us may be severely jeopardized.

Educational system fails minorities
By Darek McCullers

that they are caused by "the in-

I must disagree with these

First of all, such programs foster

Asa voting man that's about
to enter the power structure of
America, I've watched the
progress of the Civil Rights
movement with great interest.
At the conclusion of Recon-
struction, we focused on enfran-
chisement through economic de-
velopment (embodied in the
works ot Booker T. Washington).
From the turn of the century to the
early 1950s, this Cocas changed to
selective litigation .taiA test cases.
After the Brown vs. Topeka Su-
preme Court decision and the
Montgomery Bus Boycott, the fo-
cus changed to mass enfranchise-
ment through government inter-

racy Nevertheless, it was needed
During the Republican Era
of the 1470s and HOs, the focus
moved to voter registration and
political representation. However,
during the mid to late lHOs, the
movement suffered a lag
During this period of lag,
the nil Rights front seemed to be
suffering froma lackot leadership
and direction. Being a part of the
Raleigh Wake AACT, I can un-
derstand wh they don't re-
plenish their leadership. Although
there are youth chapters, of which
I was a part, the members are pa
tronized and thev are not really
allowed to be involved
They are also focusing on
finding some miraculous national
solution through litigation and
once again, a "big government
which is the wrong approach.
Thev should be looking to the
A proposal by the North
Carolina board of Education to
move to a three-tiered diploma
system is a prime opportunity for
Civil Rightsacti vists to show what
thev are made of. It is something
that members should be fighting
with all of their life.
Under this proposal, stu-
dents would be given a basic, vo-
cational and technical, or college
preparatory degrees. This seems
to be a part of the reform move-
ment which is calling for better
public schools and higher college
admission standards. If such a
system passed, it will be
instnnsically racist (whether in-
tentional or not).
Although I believe minority
students should have to make the
grade or suffer the consequences,
this is somewhat extreme Studies
have indicated that manv schools

many black studentsareclassified
or attempted to be classified as
slow learners, when thev are not.
Tracking must be eliminated, and
this system would only perpetu-
ate it
Tracking can be eliminated
bv several methods. First, the use
of standardized tests (particularly
in primary educational levels) as
the meter of educational capabil-
ity must be eliminated. I favor a
"education profiling" system in-
Second, teachers must be
better trained to meet the needs of
different students. The money
spent on specialists is often extra-
neous, and it should be reduced.
Finally,classroom sizes must
be reduced. I see this occurring
through building more schools
that would be more community-
Manv people object to this

Bobby Ethndge. He said that,
"What you're saying is you're
going to track kids early on
Ethndge believes that we
should raise the standards for all
students. I agree with his position.
Currently, there is a North Caro-
lina Scholars program which is an
incentive for students who com-
plete 22 credits (as opposed to 20)

their diploma
Ethendge argued that this
does not segregate or track stu-

Chris Columbus (Adventure? in Babysitting) creates an improbable

Columbus takes advantage of the absurd situation, tilling the
film with short bits and slapstick mixed with some sophisticated
humor that kids won't get but adults will, (sort of like a bugs Bunny
cartoon). Most of the humor is admitable geared toward children,
but its well-timed and creative enough to amuse adults who have a

ended, with Rocky rallving from a big deficit to knock
out the awesome Soviet champion in Moscow. Rocky's
return home to Philadelphia brings two major pieces of
bad news, however: The aging tighter has suffered
serious brain damage m the Russian fight, and risks
death it he ever fights again; and his accountant has
squandered all his previous winnings, leaving the
champ in a sea of red ink.
Thus. Rocky must retire, even while he has a definite
nee 1 n n more cash. His Main Line mansion goes up for
sale, and he is forced to retreat to the
Philly ghetto of his past. His wife, Adnan,evengets her
old job back at the pet store.
Rockv and Adrian are constantly pestered by a big-
time promotor named George Washington Duke (an
obvious and amusing take by actor Richard Gant on
real-life promotor Don King). Duke wants to match
Rockv agai nst a boy from his own stable in hopesof one
more big payday. Although tempted, Rocky shows
remarkable restraint, and turns, instead, toa new career
as manager of a ingratiating young farm-boy fighter
named Tommy Gunn
Duke weasels his way into Tommy's contract, how-
ever, and sets the boy up as a way to get at Rocky,
leading to an inevitable confrontation between the old
champ and the new voung Turk. 1 say inevitable,
because this is, after all, a "Rocky" him. "Rocky V"
could have been different, and better, though, if Stallone
and company had the courage to rind a plot that would
avoid fisticuffs
in the finale. It's already been established, for Pete's
sake, that the Rock has brain damage.
But, no, the Rockv series takes the easy way out, even
if it's illogical and sill v.
Still, the first hour of "Rocky V" includes several
effective sequences, marked by Stallone's best acting
since his first try at Balboa. Taking the character back to
the streets, and having him sutfer through the realiza-
tion that his career is over were smart and interesting
plot developments. And the brief reappearance by his
late trainer, Mickey (Burgess Meredith), as a guardian

Mission Statement
Greenville ihe final frontier These are
voyages of the coloring book Dvirauda Its five
year mission: to explore strange new layout
designs to seek out new advertisers and new
sources ol revenue to boldly be inoffensive
about what no person has been inoffensive
about before' theme music up, over and out I
Our purpose is to provide ECO students and the
rest of the t.reenville community with a sloppv
excuse for news coverage, though less sloppy
than The Yeast Inleiiionian. Which isn't really
hard to do, once you've set your mind to it Plus.
we suffer from (ewer misspellings and other
grammatical blunders than, say, 7e Yeasl
tnlecnoman though God knows we have our
share, especially m "Koget's Toy Chest or
whatever the heck that thing is - and we look
almost as pretty as USA TODAY Not thai we
copy them, of course We re no copycats Not
us. Everything we do is completely original lust
wish we put half the effort into news coverage
that we put into looking good Even so, we're
competition, and that's our main redeeming
value. If you absolutely insist on sending a letter
to the editor, send it to General Delivery, fargo,
North Dakota. I mean, really do you think we
want to wade through your hand scrawleddnvel'
Heck, if we printed your stuff, where would we
find the space to print all the self congratulatory
letters written by members of our own editorial
board' Get real
ECU takes our suggestion
Defrauder brings peace, harmony
It has come to our attention that Ihe
Defrauder is a great newspaper.
Look at our advantages:
� Color, color, color What s a
newspaper without color' You readers
don't care about the quality of the news
coverage, you care about color photo
graphs and nifty color graphics! The De
frauder delivers!
� Straight headlines. Straighiest
headlines in the business. Not a crooked
headline in sight. Not here
� Fawning over advertisers. A
newspaper depends on advertisers, who,
for the most part, don'tmuchcare whether
we're a decent paper or not. If we offend
advertisers, we can't bring you the news
so we fawn, bow, scrape and grovel
before them like you wouldn't believe!
'Course, you might have to suffer in the
bargain but who cares?
� Color! Just thought we'd mention
this one again
� Headlines that don't have any-
thing to do with the stories under them
We're not going to insult your intelli
gence (Not to your face, anyhow You
might be an advertiser one da I It you
want to know what'sina.story, you'II read
the story What's important in the head
lines is that they be aesthetically pleasing
ihey must balance each other, treating
a not of form and shape that draw s the eye
II they happen to have anything to do with
the stories under them, well, so much the
� Complete originality. As wc all
know, imitation is the sinterest tonn ol
flattery Does this mean we're sincerely
nattering USA TODAY withevery issue'
Of course it does! But it also means thai
any lime any other newspaper makes any
change of any kind, wc can claim the did
it to be more like us! What a racket'
� Self-congratulation. Never will you
find a newspaper more deeply commuted
to telling its audience what a great news
paper it is, than 'The Defrauder In edito-
rials letters to the editor The De-
frauder is the height ol narcissism
Beautiful but dumb, that's us
� Color. Last hut least: we have color

Missing Link
In 1927, fishermen along the sounds
ol Salvo. N.C. netted an odd creature that
even a visiting zoologist could not idcn-
nu Described as being a ard long with
two possum-like heads, webbed tect. and
a scaly crocodile tail, the beast The su-
perstitious fishermen perceived the
animal's appearance as an omen, and
Cuickl skinned and ate it.
The Mysterious Rain
After a six-month dry spell in the
mountain area of Blowing Rock, farmers
were anxiously awaiting a cloudburst
predicted by the Almanac for April 6,
1910. The fated day finally arrived, and
the townspeople gathered ouLside to wel-
come the siorm. The sky remained clear
as a bell, and no rain fell. One old-timer
still remembers the event to this day

Legend has it that our own Ml.

What's Burnin'?!
I know there's usually a recipe column here, but 1 pulled it because it was loo
personal this week. Besides, I didn't write it, and when something f didn't write appears
in the paper, that's bad.
Why is it bad? Because I have a huge ego, and I'm intent on keeping it that way.
1 mean I have an ego that's bigger than God's, and I'm proud of it. Heck, bigger than
thai, even: my ego is bigger than Bryant Gtimbcl's and Burt Reynolds' put together.
No, even bigger: if my ego were a physical object, it would be unable to fil inside
the universe We'dall have to push the universe's edgesout to make the universe bigger,
just so my ego would fil inside it. One day, we might have to do that anyway. We'll use
nanoiechnology. I know everything about nanotcchnology.
(I wrote thai last paragraph to show off what a great science writer 1 am. Aren t you
impressed? lam. Oops! There goes my ego, growing again!)
Of course, I have good reason to be proud of myself. First of all, I m incredibly
handsome. Incredibly. You wouldn't believe how handsome 1 am.
Second, I'm a great writer. But you knew that, just from reading this.
But most of all, I am The Newspaper God. 1 have experience up the wazoo. I ve
worked at The Daily Rejector. 'Course, I was doing the bridals page or something ike

Incredible Monster
In 1932, fishermen in Shalotte
claimed to have netted an unusual oddity.
Two brothers reported capturing a feath-
ered animal possessing webbed feet and

an omen.

The Plata Mall Graveyard
Because of the ignorance of
Greenville-area developers on North
Carolina law (which stales that the dead
cannot be moved from their burial
grounds), a large piece ol property de-
signed to house a shopping mall had to
accommodate an area that was pan of an
old cemeicry. Legend has u that if all of
the empty Plaza stores are ever rented out,
the dead will rise again to ravage the mall,
killing the bad, overpriced hairstylists,
Chick-Fil-A employees and arcade rats.

Hot Dogs
1 hot dog (serves 1)
A large thermonuclear weapon works best for roasting a hot dog. Don't have
a thermonuclear weapon handy? Then sleep with someone who has one, and
borrow it from them. ,
Okay you now have your thermonuclear weapon. The process for cooking
the hot dog is si mple. Fi rst, acti vate the thermonuclear weapon, setting it for a ten-
second countdown. Then stand back. The w.ll not harm
you. since, like all other objects, it has too much respect for your great physical
beauty - kind oftike that Norse God. Balder - but you stilt ought to stand back

Okay, the thermonuclear weapon detonates, grilling the hot dog to perfec-
tion. Put it on a bun and slather it with mustard (as well as any other condoms

Note that some of the above may not apply to you. For example, you
probably aren't blessed with the same degree of physical beauty as I am, so you II
have to finda safer way to grill your weenie. Tough-whatdo youmMhave
