School of Art weathers $13,000 budget cut

Recent budget cuts make the

Art Haney, the assistant dean
of the School of Art. said the normal
operating budget is $90,000 This
year, about Si 3,000 has been lost to
During the summer, the school
ordered educational supplies and
equipment, with hopes it would
arrive in time tor the Mil semester.

we would have tobe giving some of monev hack .1 lot ot that had

They tell you, 'assume that you're
going to get the same amount of
money that vou had last year and
go ahead and start ordering vour
equipment and supplies
"Asittumedout, we are antici-
pating another shortfall so the an-
ticipation is that the money we are
going to get is less than what we
had originallv planned on getting
The school need sail the money
in its budget to operate.
What reallv hurts at this time
is that a lot of this money is already
spent Hanev said. The two most
important items are
supplies and educational equip-

Travel expenses allow faculty
to recruit fmm across the country
and h ft field trips. The monev isalso
used to send faculty to the Accred-
i ting Bodies Conference which they
are required to attend.
"When it comes to recruiting,
we will probably have to interview
on the telephone or require the top
candidates to go to the College Arts
Association in Washington, DC,
and send our recruiter there to in-
terview or we ma v ha veto require
them to pay their own wav over
here, which is verv unprofessional
Haney said.
Hanev said he did not know
how the school would manage if
there were any further reductions.
The onlv money the school has left
available is in educational supplies,

going to be in trouble; we rust won't
have the money to fix the equip-

state budget committee can project
or end up with such a high short-fall
of over $500 million in anticipated
revenue that did not show up. I

Budget cuts will also be felt by
the students, especially with the
increase from 601 students in the

Students could be turned away

Hanev said
On a brighter note, Haney has
confidence that the students will

in their meeting Monday night.
Under the new resolution,
smoking will be prohibited in

mitory dining facilities, including
the Croatan, the Galley and College
Hill Dining Hall. According to a
recent survey, 77 percent of students
are non-smokers.

The legislature alsoapproved a

that we still live in a very racist and

Smith also named concepts
important to the goals of Purple

community, diversity and equality
and get away from prejudice, dis-
crimination and stereotyping.
The principle was first used in

Pow-Wow to feature Native American dances, clothing
By im Rogers
Staff Writer
For people who like music,
dancing, colorful clothing and his-
toric culture, the Native Amencans
of ECU will hold a Pow-VVow on
April 12 and 13.
Pow-Wows are held by Native
American groups wishing to share
their cultures among themselves
and with the rest of the public
thnnigh songs, da noes and clothing.
Chris Robbi ns, a member of the
Native Amencans of ECU, has
danced in many Pow-Wows and
says they occur regularly across the

The festivities begin on Friday
at 8 p.m. with a Grand Entry, which
is the entrance parade of all the

to Robbins.
The flag song is like playing the

The inter-tribal dances are
mostlv war dances derived from
Northern and Southern cultures.
The dancers dance clockwise
around a single drum to symbolize
the earth's rotation around the sun
during each year.
The war dances are a way for
each dancer to show his style
Special dances such as the "two-
step" and the "sneak up" may also
be performed. The "two-step" is the
only dance where the male and fe-
male dancers are hand-in-hand.
The "sneak up" resembles a
person sneaking up on another
person or animal as in a hunt,
This Pow-VVow is going to be
run accord ing to Southern etiquette
because most of the music and
dances planned are derived from
the Southern Plains Indians.
According to Robbins, there
will be anywhere from 30 to 150
dancers from many different places
attending the Pow-VVow.
Robbins is a Northem-styic
dancer. He said the differences be-
tween Northern style and Southern

and the musk.

The program involves 99 col-

assignment, according to Evancho.
All of the students are matched

"It is a very personal thing
Evancho said.
Evancho credits the high suc-

the success rate would pmbably be

School of medicine to begin rehabilitation program
ECU News Bureau
The East Carolina University
School of Medicine will begin a resi-
dency training program in physical
medicine and rehabilitation
(PM&R) this summer, the first of its
kind in North Carolina.
After an arduous review pro-
cess, the new program has received
approval from the Accreditation
Committee on Graduate Medical
Education (ACGME), the national
accrediting body for residency pro-
grams. The first four residents will
begin the four-year training pro-
gram July 1.
A residency is a period of addi-
tional training that all new physi-
cians undertake after graduation
from medical school. Based in
teaching hospitals, the residency
lasts from three to five years and
prepares a phvsician to specialize
in such areas as pediatrics, surgery,
familv medicine and some 10 other
Specialists in PM&R�known
as phvsiatnsts � provide rehabili-
tative care to individuals who have
been severely injured or who suffer
from a disabling illness or condi-
tion. The specialty is unique in its
complexity, according to Dr.
Sanford Vernick, the Director of the
new residency program and ECU
Associate Professor or Thysical
Medicine and Rehabilitation.
'Because the patient'sproblems
are so complicated said Vernick,
"the physiatrist must utilize a team
of experts to deal with nearly every
aspect of the patient's life. The
physiatrist is the captain of the
Although the board which cer-
tifies physicians in PM&R was
formed in 1940, the development of
the specialty has occurred largely
since the end of the Second World
War, Vernick said. War has been an
important catalyst in thisevolution,
as med icine sought and found tech-
niques to restore wounded soldiers
to some semblance of normal life.
Vernick said the specialty con-
tinues to grow in response to sev-
eral factors. Hospital staffs have be-
come more proficient at "saving
people in the emergency depart-
ment and these patients require
increasingly heavy concentrations
of rehabilitative care.
Health care economics is also
plavwg a role bv providing incen-
tives to hospi tal s to transfer pa tients
earlier fromacutecareunits to more
cost-effective rehabilitation pro-
And Americans aged 75 and
older, who will make up nearly
seven percent of the population by
the year 2000, are among the heavi-
est users of rehabilitation services.
Whi le these factors have stimu-
lated the demand for physiatrists,
the number of residency programs
training new phvsiatnsts is limited.
The United States and Canada have
126 medical schools but only 72
residency programs in PM&R. In
contrast, there are over 200 resi-
dency programs in pediatrics.
The Southeast now has seven
programs�at the Medical College
of Virginia, the University of Vir-
ginia, The Eastern Virginia Medical
School, Emory University, the Uni-
versity of Alabama, Louisiana State
University and ECU.
Vernick attributes the dearth of
rehabilitation residencies in part to
the stringent requirements of the
ACGME for theaccreditationof new
Among these requiremen ts are
a board-certified rehabilitation fac-
ulty, and ancillary faculty willing to
assist in teaching, and a well-
equipped facility with a good pa-
tient mix that will expose residents
to a wide variety of maladies.
Some of the most common are
spinal cord injury, stroke, head in-
jury, amputabons, chronic pain and
neuromuscular disorders.
That ECU's application for a
residency was approved by
ACGME speaks well for both the
medical school and the Regional
Rehabilitahon Center of Pitt County
Memorial Hospital, where the pro-
gram will be based, Vernick said.
"1 think it's a feather in our cap
that thev approved us because a lot
of programs applv and are not ap-
proved he said.

Student leader
with service
To The Editor:
I am a concerned student
as well as a student in a leader-
ship position here at East
Carolina University.
I havealways felt that The
East Carolinian has shyed away
from the real purpose of a stu-
dent newspaper. Please do not
take me wrong. I enjoy reading
The East Carolinian, but at times
I believe that the students are
cheated of the news that greatly
concerns them�the things that
are going on right here on
I started dealing directly
with the newspaper last year in
my role as Student Homecom-
ing Chair.
I had been warned of how
difficult it was to work with The
East Carolinian but didn't be-
lieve it.
I wii amazed at what I
had to do to ensure that here
would be coverage of the
Homecoming activities. I re-
member thinking then tha t there
should be more concern about
informing the students of things
that really concerned them.
Now, I am president of a
student organization, an orga-
nization that encompasses 5,500
students or one-third of the stu-
dent population. I have had to
fight to get just a little coverage
that would allow the students
to know exactly what was hap-
pening with the Residence Hall
There have been some of
our executive officers that have
come by to place ads in the pa-
per that eventually showed up
two days to two weeks later.
There has been someone by to
place an ad in the paper that was
never run. Can you explain
It's not just my organiza-
tion, but I feel that the SGA,
Student Union and many other
student organizations are
treated this way as well.
There should be more fee-
hare articles for the students by
a newspaper that is supposedly
for the students.
I should have voiced my
thoughts earlier than this and
am sorry that I did not.
I will be graduating in
the spring and wish to leave
behind this message: we who
work for the students are here

Energy policy debate lacks honesty
By Scott Maxwell
Editorial Columnist
The debate over President
George Bush's proposed national
energy policy is a classic example
of one of the things thafs wrong
with the way we argue in this
country. All our arguments about
public policy are predicated on
the assumption that there exists
such a thing as a free lunch � that
is, tnat we can eventually get ev-
erything for nothing, if we just
shout at each other loudly enough
in the meantime.
President Bush occasionally
makes some noise about having to
face up to the costs of this or that,
but it's really just noise. The idea
of trade-offs � that one course of
action may have advantages that
another course does not ha ve, and
also has its own set of disadvan-
tages � does not exist in his world.
over his energy policy. Both sides
admit that we ought to use less
foreign oil, but that'sabout all the
sense they talk.
Supportersof the president's
plan � and I swear I have never in
my life seen any other bunch of
people so damned eager to drill a
big hole in the ground � pretend
that oil can be had practically for
the asking, with no risk to the

ridicule the notion that damaging
ecosystems makes any difference
to anyone but the caribou, but
that's not the thrust of their argu-
To hear them tell it, you'd
think it's just a matter of building
a little road and then carting the
oil straight into American homes
Thafs ridiculous. It's clear
that an enormous amount oi
damage will be caused just by
hauling in all the needed heavy
equipment, building living quar-
ters, and so on.
Not to mention what the
plan's supporters won't mention:
that as long as we keep drilling for
oil and schlepping it around, oil
spills are inevitable. Some will be
quite large, as was the spill from
the Exxon Valdez. They're liter?Uy
impossible to avoid.
Equally impossible to avoid
� though the other side tries � is
the present-day, immediate need
for oil.
Conservationists want to
circumvent this by selling 60-mpg
cars. But even if we produced hO-
mpg cars, who would buy them?
Most people can't afford to buy a
new car unless they trade in their
old one. And somebody has to be
willing to buy that old one in or-
der for the trade-in to be worth the
dealer's while, so the old gas-
guzzler is liable to go right back on
the roads.

higher-mileage cars won't reduce
High-mileage cars face an-
other, uh, roadblock: American
consumers don't like them (and
won't buy them) because the ve-
hicles are smaller and lighter than
most cars on American roads to-
day, which means that people
riding in them will fare especially
poorly in collisions until the big-
ger cars are off the road.

Providing 60-mpg cars
doesn't do any good at all if con-

Any way vou look at it, con-
servation implies raising taxes (or
cutting services). That's probablv
whv Mr Bush's plan strives so
strenuously to avoid it.
But the plan's opponents
won't admit that taxes are an in-

posals, if their proposals are to

unfair treatment
To The Editor:
The Department of Public
Safety has to make somechanges
for the better. 1 can not under-
stand why it is so hard for them
to treat students courteously.
This does not apply to all
of those affiliated with the de-
partment, but only four out of
about 20 have ever treated me
I wouldn' t be complaining
if this was the extent of the situ-
ation. The Department of Public
Safety has seen fit to issue me
five tickets for overtime parking
at a meter.
This would normally be
the right thing to do, but I have
a handicapped decal from the
university and a permanent
handicapped plate from the
state of North Carolina issued
by a medical doctor. This
makes it necessary for me to
park near my dorm. Handi-
capped spaces on the campus
are so few and far apart, they
do no good considering my
The state determines how
many handicapped spaces are
available, not ECU. Fine, I have
no problem with that. I took
the time and effort to speak
with three university officials
and four Public Safety officials
as to where I would be entitled
to park without penalty.
All seven responded
anywhere on campus, includ-
ing parking meters for indefi-
nite periods of time (which
means 1 don't have to worry
about gettinga ticket), staff and
visitor, etc. The only place that
I was told 1 could not park was
fire zones.
So all of a sudden I'm
getting tickets for doing what I
was told by seven people who
supposedly knew what they
were doing. Public Safety is
trying to make me pay fines
which the state of North
Carolina doesn't enforce!
Public Safety must be
desperate for money to refin-

My initial reaction to this

But that's just the problem:

and victimize other people sim-
ply out of sheer lack of respect for
the people around them. Being
forced to take orders the way a
soldier does in boot camp might
teach these folks some manners.
Most important of all, boot-
camp prisons would turn incar-
ceration from a passive, ware-
housing experience to an active,
rehabilitative experience. Inmates
would come out changed for the
better. Ideally, they would come
out self disciplined and self-aware
with a respect for themselves and
others, and the knowledge that
they can takechargeof themselves
and their lives. At worst, they'd
come out humbled, obedient and
relatively harmless.
Of course, there's the ques-
tion of money. We wouldn't have
to build many new facilities, since
we'd basically only be changing
the way our existing facilities op-
erate. If we need more bootamp
space, we could simply convert
some of these military bases the
Pentagon is phasing out.
Boot-camp prisons could run
more efficiently than standard
prisons, as well. Why pay outside
labor to handle maintenance and
new construction when you have
a disciplined (and free) workforce
on-site which needs something to
do? (If we have problems with the
free-labor slavery issue, we could
simply pay the inmates a salary
and then charge them for room
and board)
There are already several
boot-camp prisons in operation
throughout the country and the
results have been positive. Few
graduates from these programs
become repeat offenders, and the
prisons themselves cost no more
per inmate that standard prisons
of comparable size.
By reforming our prisons
according to the boot-camp model,
we'd be turning them into facto-
ries which would take in criminals
and churn out self-disciplined
human beings. At this point in
time, that is the most we can expec t
from a correctional system. And it
should also be the least we will

The Hash' preserves comic book character
By Cliff Coffey

When The Mash appeared on
CBS at the start of the 1990 fall sea-
son, it was the most expensive show
ever made for television. Now that
the first season nears the end, The
Rash has survived the Thursday
When Danny Bilson and Paul
De Meo announced that The Rash
would become a television show,
manv comic readers feared that it
would go the same route as the
other recent superhero shows, not
resembling the comic character at
all. Alas, Bilson and De Meo sur-
prised everybody. They not only
stood close to the character, they
brought inoneof comicbooks'most
admired writers, to write for the
show and to be the creative consult-
ant, Howard Chaykin.
The Rash has battled many
common villains, and those shows
were not as good as the shows in
which he battles super villains (like
the Trickster in the recent show,
who, by the way, is a DC Comics
super villain).
The Flash fighting a common
thief just doesn't seem reasonable.
A man that can run over 500 mfles-
per-hour against a man with a gun,
not believable. But under the same
conditions, only the villain having
gimmicks and special powers
makes the match-up much more Thor, who appeared on a Hulk spe-
interestingand believable. If a man oal, was nothing like the Marvel

The most commonly used tan-
ning pills contain an active ingre-
dient called canthaxanthin, a beta-
beta-carotenes, cannot be broken
down into vitamin A, and thus, is
not well metabolized by the body.
Canthaxanthin is approved by the
FDA as a food coloring and is used
in small amounts in animal feed to
skin and fatty tissues. The FDA has
classified the use of canthaxanthin
in tanning pills � or in any other
cosmetic product � as illegal,
though such products are available
through health food stores, tanning
salons, and mail-order services.

Arlington Hall Gallery is pre-
senting the works of a potter, Doug
Eubankand a painter, David Parker.
Both of these artists have chosen
works to exhibit which demonstrate
their convictions about what art
means to them.
Eubank's work is playful yet
serious while Parker's paintings
reflect a sober and tranquil ap-
Doug Eubank's pottery com-
bines his skill when throwing clas-
sical forms with a personal whimsy
which takes seemingly simple
shapes and somehow lets a portion
of the form go haywire. Thus, we
may find ourselves confronting a
beautifully executed teapot with a
spout that has grown far beyond its
normal limits in terms of conven-
tional proportion.
Surprises, such as the one just
described run rampant throughout
Eubank's work selected for this
In addition to the many varia-
tions of teapots, Eubank has several
small prismacolor drawings in-
cluded in the show. Thesedra wings
are flat and elaborately patterned as
if declaring themselves two-di-
mensional in contrast to his obvi-
ously three-dimensional potter.
However, like his pottery, the
drawings are constructed tradi-

work is small, the authority with
art about art
which the artist expresses the im-

him is very apparent. Forms are

of the artist is felt with every stroke.
Parker's strongest statements

Jack Nicholson flies over the cuckoo
nest this week at Hendrix Theatre
Finally, the Student Union Films Committee presents the
"Vincent Schiavelli Film Festival You're probably feeling quite
certain that you've never seen this distinguished actor, but you're
wrong. You've seen him in both of this week's features, "Ghost" and
"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Schiavelli has made a good living in Hollywood playing de-
mented and deranged characters for a couple of decades now. In
"Ghost he was the subway-dwelling spirit who terrorized Sam
then taught him how to master his new paranormal state. In "One
Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest he was one of the resident psychos
that lack Nicholson tried to rehabilitate.
Our hero Schiavelli's gem of a performance in "Ghost" was
overshadowed, however, by those of mega-stars Patrick Swavze,
Demi Moore and VVhoopi Goldberg, who won this year's Academy
Award for Best Supporting Actress. The film also won the Oscar for
Best Original Screenplay
OK, is there anybody out there who still doesn't know the plot?
Patrick Swavze plays Sam, a Wall Street investment broker who
shares an idyllic loft with his girlfriend Molly (Demi Moore), an
artist whose sensuai and nchly shaped sculptures figure as a meta-
phor for their love affair. The two are very much in love but at the
moment that they are ready to commit to each other Sam is killed by
a mugger as the lovers make their wav home from the theatre.
Then, as a beam of Tinkerbell Stardust washes down from
heaven, Sam is transformed into a ghost. He quickly intuits that
Molly can neither see nor hear him. This proves to be a problem
when he later discovers that he was killed bv his sooopathic best
friend Carl (Tony Goldwyn). He is helpless in letting Mollv know
that she too is in danger.
Things begin to look up when Sam meets up with Oda Mae
Brown (YVhoopie Goldberg), a charlatan psychic from Brooklyn
who tumsout to have real powers She is theonly person able to hear
Sam's voice. Sam enlists Oda Mae's help in warning Molly of
impending trouble.
"Ghost" is a sophisticated and extremely engaging melange of
romance, comedy and suspense, a kind of general, all-purpose film
experience that slap us silly and seduces us to tears. Who'd of
thought that a movie starring the kitsch crew of Swavze, Goldberg
and Moore could ever be so well received and successful?
"Ghost" will be shown Thursday, Fndav and Saturday nights,
April 11,12 and 13 at 8 p.m. "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" will
screen Sunday, April 14, also at 8 p.m.

Her eight years as director of
the private, nonprofit Kinsey In-

of controversy. She was asked to
resign in 1988 by a faculty com-

where the institute is located.
Reinisch was criticized �
some say unjustly � for adminis-

quality and amount of research
done during her tenure. "I was

Standers, assistant director of the

Reinisch's at Rutgers.
"I don't know what exactly

The blood-red costume with

taken directly from the comic

the Flash
The Flash has had its highs and
lows, as all series do, and what
makes the highs high are the cos-
tumed villains that he takes on. The
Ghost, the Tracker, Gideon and the
Trickster have been sprinkled into
the series to spark more interest and
give the Flash a new challenge.
The special effects, which ma ke

The speed of the Hash is not
shown like the Six Million Dollar
Man and simply speeded up film,
but is depicted as a blur, giving him
the illusion of super speed.
The interplay between the
characters is played for humor, and

ends up a little corny.

the FCL' lacrosse team this past
Saturday afterncxn the team
handed the Virginia Common-
wealth Rams an 18-12 loss. A com-
bined score of 30 points happens in
lacrosse with about the same fre-
quency asa KXVpoint football game.
In short, tho Pirates generated some
serious offense.
Sundav afternoon did not fea-
ture the same scoring extravaganza
as Saturday did, but the Pirates,
playing perhaps their best game in
five vears, were able to destroy the
Richmond Spiders 8-1.
Saturday's game opened very
quickly with both teams scoringfive
goals in the opening period. Fans
were treated to almost every facet
of a lacrosse game in that period
alone; sconng, hitting, man-down
defense and coaching strategy.
In the second period the Pirates
were able to maintain their intensity
as well as pick up the defense, and
they built a four point lead just be-
fore intermission.
After the break, ECU decided

gainst JMU Leisten went 4-for-3 with 2 RBI in the first game
to trv and put the Rams away by
sconng three straight goals to build
a seven point lead with 11 minutes
to go in the third quarter.
VCU was not yet ready to quit,
however, as thev answered with
three gcvals of their own to make the
game interesting again.
In the end condi honing was the
difference. Asthethirdquarterdrew
to a close the lesser manned Rams
wore showing obvious signs oi fa-
tigue. This led to a slew of penalties
against them.
The Pirates were able to capi-
talize bv sconng two goals in man-
up situations, which occurs when
the opposing team has a player in
the penalty box. The goals effec-
tively sealed the Pirate's victory
despite a last ditch effort by VCU.
Almost every offensive player
on the team scored at least one goal,
and the Pirate defense was led by
senior Wes Davis and senior goal
tender Phil Truitt, who played an
outstanding game despite the 12
goals allowed.
Sunday'sgame wasperhaps the
best ever for a Pirate lacrosse club
team. They were able to execute
well i n every aspect of the game a nd
continued to do it through four
Tho Pirates looked like a well-
oiled machine as they caught and
passed with proficiency, found the
open man. cxeeu ted well on defense,
scored on man-up situations and
held in man-down as thev thor-
oughly demolished a previously
undefeated Richmond team.
I"he Spiders did not arrive on
time and forced tho game to start an
hour late thus they did not have the
opportunity to warm-up properly
before tho game began. This may
have affected the first quarter which
the Pirates won 3-0.
The second quarter was ECU'S
proof that thev wore for real as they
again shut out the now warmed up
Spider offense while sconng three
more goals of their own.
The one goal thev scored came
on a clear attempt dunng a man-
down situation for the Bucs, when a
pass was intercepted and subse-
quentlv shot into an almost-empty
goal from 20 feet out. The Pirate
defense lost the shut out.
Leading the ECU offense were
senior midfielders Kelly Hoyt and
Drew Bourque, along with fresh-
man attackman Mike Schmidt.
The dav, however, belonged to
Truitt, who only allowed one goal
and had in excess of 15 saves.
