the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will
begin a bicycle patrol program in four to six weeks,
according to the campus chief of police.
The program is nxvleled after thoseat other campuses

Dental school to be phased out
Dental education at Emory University in Atlanta
will be phased out following a Board of Trustees vote not
to accept anymore residents to the School of Post-gradu-
ate Dentistry
This move comes five vears after the university
abolished its undergraduate dental program.
As the majority of the 36 current residents complete
their training within two years, the school's staff will
likely be dispersed within the University.

in it
Annual party closed to minors
An annual al!ampus party at the University of

Thomas slams coverage of SGA
Meeting Adjourned
Once again, the time has come for the manag-
ing editor to say goodbye in the traditional "30
column (-30- is the symbolic code of a journalist
used to show the end of a story.) Therefore, I will take
this opportunity to reflect on the progression of the
paper and the learningexperiencesencountered from
start to finish.
The East Carolinian has definitely changed tre-
mendously over the past five months. We have
adopted a new style, a new look and many changes
(as always) in the people that put the paper together.
In my opinion, all of these combined efforts reflect
When 1 first started as managing editor at the
end of fall semester, my goal was to not uphold the
t rad i tion of my predecessors in at least one respect �
no more 5:30 a.m. production nights. It took me the
first two papers to learn, but I finally figured out how
to do it.
I do not think we have been forced to sacrifice
the quality of our content. In fact, I believe you will
agree that our content actually improved over the
past semesterWe haH;rgiv,en me'students, faculty
and 'arninistraf�offfrldLrf�p)est coverage of
news, features and sports the campus community
has to offer.
Changes to the editorial page have also al-
lowed the campus community to become more in-
volved by expressing their opinions throughcolumns,
letters and editorials.
Some old faces reappeared for another tour,
while a host of new people brought enthusiasm and
desire to the office. After a couple of papers, every-
one came together as one, and we have reached
plateaus that before, we could have never dreamed
of reaching. So it's time to give credit to the people
who were instrumental inaccomplishing these goals.
In the news department, Blair Skinner and
LeClair Harper survived some rough times in the
beginning (war broke out during the production
night for our second paper of the year) and brought
stability to a news department that lost both of its
editors last fall.
Blair returned to the news department after a
semester-long stint working for The Charlotte Ob-
server as an intern. He will now replace me as man-
aging editor and no doubt make the editorial page an
even stronger section than it is now.
And LeClair (Lee) takes over in Blair's vacated
spot as news editor � a job which she will have no
trouble adjusting to. Her dedication and hard work
will almost certainly strengthen the content and
coverage of campus news.
The features department will again beanchored
by "Macho" Matt King. "Macho in his infinite
wisdom, will continue to cover the latest events of
downtown Greenville, as well as the newest bands
and other features that hit the ECU campus. And, no
doubt, will never fail to remind us so.
In sports, Matt "Yo" Mumma will continue his
roleassports editor. Look forcontinued improvement
from Matt as he brings us the latest coverage in the
sports "hall of shame" at ECU.
Of course, I cannot forget Staff Illustrator Jeff
"Walt-Disney's-gonna-sue-you" Parker, with whom
I shared many, many "Simpson's" jokes �
Hampton, who recently took over as general
manager, and Greg Jones (the new director of ad-
vertising) have already instilled a rejuvenated feel-
ing into the business side of the newspaper. As I
leave to take on my new role as business manager, be
prepared to see bigger newspapers again this fall as
the three of us work together to improve the financial
aspects of The East Carolinian.
Finally, I would like to say goodbye to some
good friends who will be leaving us: Joey Jenkins,
Doug Morris, Stuart Oliphant and "Dizzy" Dcanna
Stuart, with his dry wit and perfectionist's at-
titude, will be greatly missed by everyone up here.
I'll always remember Stuart as the only features
writer controversial enough to receive a harsh letter
from a reader for his critical review of NBC's "Dark
Deanna, although no longer a member of the
editorial board, will be missed because we will no
longer be able to read her weekly column in features,
affectionately dubbed "Metal Jokes Have fun in
Boston, Deanna, you head-banging gal, you!
I cannot begin to tell everyone how invaluable
Doug has been to me this semester. Since moving
into the position of Layout Manager in February, he
has taken the overall design of the newspaper to new
heights. The new design changes that have occurred
this semester have all been the work of this man.
Through many long nights and overtime, Doug has
created a design torival that of any college newspaper
in North Carolina � yes, even the "great" Daily Tar
Last but not least, I'd like to thank former
General Manager Joey "Spanker" Jenkins for his
advice and support throughout the semester. By
hiring me as managing editor last fall, Joey showed
his support in my work ethic and abilities and has
since told me that I did not let him down. Thanks for
everything Joey � you little butt pirate!
As I finish my final night as managing editor, I
look back on all times highs and lows of being a
college journalist. I'll never forget the words of
wisdom that Mike Martin gave me as I prepared to
take his place last year uh to be honest I think I
did forget them. But it was something like "this job
will be the most fun and the biggest headache you've
ever had in your life
Looking back, I'll really miss the long hours,
sleepless nights and constant "mothering" (how do
you do this, Albie? will you help me with that,
Albie?) that goes along with this position. In fact, I
really wish I wasn't stepping down as managing
editor �NOT!
Thanks, Mike, you really were right about this
job! I don't know how you did it for eight months.
And very special thanks to Eric Hillard for his
Hitler analogy � it meant a lot to Mr. Editor.
But most importantly, thanks to you, the little
people, you made this all possible by reading the
newspaper. Until next time � MEETING AD-
As I reflect back on the 1990-
91 year, I am quite proud of what
we have accomplished. Upon en-
tering office last May, we were
faced with several difficult situa-
tions, with the budget shortfall
problems, the "Halloween Mas-
sacre" of ECU students by city
police, the revoking of the Noise
Permits by the city and the safety
concerns on campus. My goals
were simple: to turn our relation-
ship around with the city, work
with the university to manage
through the budget problem and
help better our campus.
With the city of Greenville, I
discovered that the main problem
was a lack of communication with
the students. We met with city
officials and police for months
concerning Halloween, to make
sure the disaster of the year before
would not repeat itself.
Student Government,
working with Student Union and
Chancellor Eakin, took the initia-
tive to plan a celebration concert
on campus at Minges, to offer a
positive alternative for that night.
On Halloween night, I
worked with city police until 2
a.m. to help prevent any confron-
tations between students and po-
lice, standing ready with their riot
gear. Not a single incident con-
cerning ECU students happened
that night. That was not an acci-
dent, but a product of hard work
by many people, which I am proud
City Council's action to re-
voke noise permits resulted in
outrage by students. A march
down to the City Hall vented out
our frustrations last year. At that
point we began negotiations with
the city that lasted six months to
get the permits back.
We moved from a City
Council opinion that all of their
problems were a result of the un-
ruly students of ECU, to an un-
derstanding of both sides and re-
spect for each other. This under-
standing was also a result of a lot
of hard work, which resulted in
Noise Permits being returned to
We organized five voter-
registration drives on campus, in
cooperation with the League of
Women Voters to encourage stu-
dent involvement in statewide
elections. Several hundred stu-
dents were registered as a result
This year, we witnessed our
campus change to a well-lighted
university with increased num-
bers of saferv phones contributing
to a much safer environment.
Environmental concemsand
recycling were addressed by
George Armistead of the univer-
sity, whom I met with early in the
year to discuss the plans they had
alread y im pi amen ted on recyc ling.
I provided input on student con-
cerns and offered ideas and co-
operation with our campus' state
of nature.
When the budget problems
"hit home" with the plans for
cutting back of library hours,
Student Government took quick
action to provide $10,000 to keep
the doors open. 1 met with Chan-
cellor Eakin to work with the ad-
ministration to make sure that
our assistance would result in the
Library reverting immediately
back to regular hours.

Bnace up that nbhs-
By Darek McCullers
Editorial Columnist
This is my last article of the
year. It may be my last as a student
at this university (I may be ma-
triculating elsewhere). It may be
the last of my life (for tomorrow is
not promised). Therefore, I would
like to embark upon a subject one
more time.
I shall attempt to help the
reader understand that I do not
categorize people. I categorize
actions. I state that the actions of a
group of people, mostly of Euro-
pean descent, have been bad from
the middle ages to the present.
Today, things are changing, and I
hope this will continue.
My concern is not with
complaining, I don't have a chip
on my shoulder against all white
people. If that was the problem, it
could easily be solved. Rather, my
problem is with evil. I don't like
genocidal activities perpetrated by
a white male-controlled govern-
ment (such as the Tuskegee Ex-
periment) requiring blacks and
poor white women to be sterilized
in order to receive financial assis-
tance (this happened in North
Carolina), or police incompetence
(such as the gang violence incited
in Los Angeles because of police
brutality against blacks there�as
well as in Raleigh and Washington,
I don't like for men to rape
and abuse women because it is a
crime against society and against
God. I don't like black-on-black
crime. Truly, there are many evils
against which we must all struggle.
Some white readers have
endicted me for my viewpoints;
that is your privilege. However,
my only crime is that I see the
world from a black perspective.
This is only fitting because for
more than 500years, it was viewed
from a white perspective. The
history, literature, arts and sci-
ences tha t took place kept the black
names and achievements off the
roles. By stating these things, I am
not a black supremacist (if there
could be such a thing); rather, I'm
only turning the scales. My in-
tention is to expose the feelings
and tensions that exist.
These articles only scratch
the surface of a complicated issue
to which there are many sides.
Reading these articles and reacting
based on a few statements is not
There are some who believe
the statement, "I'm not responsible
for my for the actions of my fore-
fathers It is your forefathers that
caused the problem, and it is you
who must solve it. As aspiring
college graduates, you will soon
have the opportunity to do so.
Within five years after en-
tering the corporate world, you
will be in midd le management (on
average). After 10-15 years, you
will be in upper level management
where you will be doing the hiring,
firing and promotions. This is
when you can prove what you
say. It will be you who can bring
economic justice because statistics
indicate that currently, it does not
Thirty-three percent oi all
blacks are unemployed; you will
be able to hire them. Fifty percent
of all black children are still being
born into poverty; you can support
leaders who are doing something
tochange this (be it governmental,
civic or religious leadership)
Economics, coupled with
respect, can bring about freedom
and dignity, we are approaching
the former but not the latter We
need them both because a man
might be respected, but if he does
not have the freedom to create, it
is all for nothing. Therefore, we
need a program of empowerment
and re-education.
The key to reaching this goal
is three-fold. Euro-centric, male
centered education must end. The
world was not contained in Europe
as many textbooks imply. I had to
find this out through outside
reading. However, my wonderful
school librarian that I thought very
highly of told me I shouldn't read
so many "ethno-centric" books.
Knowledge is the power to
create and the problem with the
way black children have been
educated is that they are taught
that only white men have had that
power (historically speaking)
Groups such as the Society oi
American Scholars want to keep it
that way.

for this can be argued, but what
is hard to dispute is the fact that
obtaining a CPA rests solely
with an individual and hisher

disagrees with
editorial's view
To The Editor:
After reading M r.
McCullers'and Ms. Kilconvne's
articles published on April lb, 1
am compelled to share mv per-
sonal view on this issue. I came
to this country as an interna-
tional student about 10 years
Contrary to many beliefs,
1, despite being an Asian, am
not qualified for any preferen-
tial treatments or even for any
scholarships as many minori-
ties are. I went to a private uni-
versity in Boston and landed
few jobs there after graduation.
Boston is a city composed of
many ethnic groups, Jws, Ital-
ians, Irish, etc. Even though
there is such diversity, I have
vet to sec racism as Mr.
McCullers so blatantly portrays
it. Moreover, in fact, growing
up in a very honiogeneous soci-
ety, I have never understood
and experienced racism until I
came to this country.
There are indisputable
differences in human beings.
We don't look alike or sound
alike, and we never will. How-
ever, we may think alike and
feel alike. Melting the differ-
ences takes efforts, re-educa-
tion, understanding, compas-
sion and acceptance.
More than a belief, the
people I know naturally feel that
either men or women, either
blacks or whites, are created
equal. Look at the American
society as a whole, immigrants
like Jews, Hispanics, Irish, Ital-
ians and even Asians have
joined the big melting pot. Un-
fortunately, the majority of
blacks have not. Is this a kind of
inward sentiments of separate-
ness among themselves?
By and large, the black
population in universities and
colleges has risen to almost de-
mographic level. Most black
students, and to a certain extent
some Asian ones, keep to them-
selves because of self-con-
sciousness and their cultural
preferences. I believe it equally
applies to the whites. In essence,
everybody cares about hisher
own business. Would that con-
stitute Mr. McCullers' descrip-
tion of racial discrimination?
Mr. McCullers cited bibli-
cal instances and doctrines and
vividly proclaimed Christian-
ity. Perhaps he has been using
the Bible as a tool to achieve his
end rather than taking it to
transform us to meet its own
In loving the enemy, Mr.
McCullers forgot that Jesus, be-
ing knowingly betrayed by Ju-
das, had unconditionally and
gracefully treated and accepted
him as hisdisciple and had shared
the last meal with him.
Has Mr. McCullers missed
the point? By inflicting and pass-
ing the guilt and the fault on this
generation's whites of their an-
cestors' slavery practices, again
Mr. McCullers forgot that Ezekiel
(Ezekiel 18:20-21) questioned
God about sins, and the answer
was "The soul who sins is the one
who will die. The son will not
share the guilt of the father, nor
will the father share the guilt of
the son. The righteousness of the
righteous man will be credited to
him, and the wickedness of the
wicked will be charged against
him Why Mr. McCullers?
Also, whv does Mr.
McCullers keep digging up the
slavery issue? Just for remem-
brance sake? Remembrance
without understanding is self-
betrayal. This nation fought a
bloody civil war on this issue.
Mr. McCullers might po-
litically argue that the war was
more for wealth and constitu-
tional power and control between
the northern industrial statesand
the southern cotton plantation
states than slavery. But nobody
can denv the fact the abolition-
ists, who were predominantly
whites (the VVASP's Mr.
McCullers so ragingly accused),
fought a war for the freedom of
the people on the basis of a con-
viction that all men are created
equal. After the civil war, the first
10 Amendments and many oth-
ers were made to protect the
blacks. Is today's problem still a
direct proliferation of slavery or
socio-economic issues?
Take AIES victims as an
example. White gay males have
constantly failed to persuade the
administration (which happens
to be headed by a black cabinet
member) to fund research
projects to cure the infected pa-
tients. Hasanvone, including Mr.
McCullers, put this forth as a
genocide issue as he did under
the veneer of racism of blacks
against whites or whites against
Many who grow up in the
inner-city ghettos of material
deprivation are indeed victims.
They are victims of fate. No
doubt, whites are not usually
among this group. However, it
does not imply that people from
ghettos, most of them are minori-
ties, are eternally inherent of this
For i nstance, one of my col-
lege roommates is black, from
the ghetto of Harlem in New York
City,and a student from Harvard.
Certainly, there are numerous
successful stories about blacks.
They seem to commonly share a
belief that, in this democratic so-
ciety, they not only have to live
through the "power structure"
which Mr. McCullersdegradedly
characterized, but also to take
advantage of it so that one day
they will be the movers and
shakers of this structure.
Social policies and pro-
grams, such as affirmative ac-
tions, preferential treatmentsand
racially hiring faculty members,
have increased the opportunities
for minorities and have a pur-
pose to culminate in integration
rather than toward black sepa-
The white society has ac-
cepted these as means to acceler-
ate equality. Unfortunately,
many fail to take a personal step
further that, through integration,
they have ample opportunity of
understanding each other better.
Mr. McCullers feels in-
creasingly victimized living in a
white society because of his skin
color, and the white people re-
sent being constantly labelled as
racists for a crime they refuse to
believe they committed. Either
way to anyone is painful. But my
biggest disappointment is Mr
McCullers' attitude toward the
Brown vs. Topeka case on black
children choosing white dolls.
Why does Mr. McCullers feel so
strongly to alter children's per-
ceptions on white dolls? Re-
member, children don't lie;adults

wp aw we couvnue our salutz to the
Media Board quick to blame others
By David Bailey
Editorial Columnist
I always enjoy seeing ECU
mentioned in newspapers other
than The East Carolinian. How-
ever, recently, most news about
our university has been negative.
I am referring to the headline on
the front page of the April 20 News
and Obserjyer that read "Student
apathy deep-sixes ECU's Bucca-
Why blame the entire stu-
dent body for the yearbook's de-
mise? In the article, ECU officials
cite "lack of support from students
scrapped the 1990-91 yearbook
Instead of "student apathy the
headline should have read "stu-
dent incompetence
The Media Board seems
quick to place the blame on others
when it is the governing body of
the yearbook. Obviously, prob-
lems were mounting before it was
made public that ECU would not
be having a yearbook this year.
There was a Buccaneer staff in Au-
gust that was paid to do the job,
and they didn't.
Much ado was made about
student apathy towards the five-
question survey administered in
early April. Why was this survey
done after the yearbook had been
canceled? Maybe the reason that
only 200 students responded was
due to the fact that the Media Board
conducted the survey for two days
in only one location during a few
hours. Obviously, this survey is
not representative of the entire
student body.
I'm sure the Media Board's
response to me would be that I
should have done something
about the yearbook and gotten
involved seeing that I am so con-
cerned. First, I am already in-
volved with several student
groups and have a part-time job
that takes up most of my free time.
Secondly, I was not a ware that the
yearbook was in jeopardy before
it was too late. Although prob-
lems existed with the Buccaneer in
January, the cry for help did not
come until the semester was half-
way over.
Maybe I have a vested inter-
est in the yearbook because I am a
senior and want a record of my
final year here at ECU, but I paid
for a yearbook as well.
The cost of producing a
yearbook for the 1990-91 school
year wasdivided amongst all ECU
students and included in our stu-
dent fees.
What will happen to the
money that all of us paid for a
yearbook? Will next year's stu-
dents also be charged for a year-
book that will not be produced?
As for this year, the students are
not getting what they paid for. I
want a refund, dammit!
Continued from page 4
which we have reported to our
readers throughout the year.
Therefore, we do not un-
derstand which "problem" Mr.
Thomas refers to, unless he
means the "problem" of reporting
the facts, both good and bad.
about the SGA. Mr. Thomas, like
anyone else, would probably
prefer to see only the positive
things he and the rest of the SGA
have done this year.
However, as the only stu-
dent media capable of function-
ing as a watchdog for student
concerns, The East Carolinian will
continue to present ALL the facts
to the students of this university,
rather than just one-sided pub-
licity. We would be cheating you,
the students, if we did otherwise.
Continued from page 4
The second part is empow-
erment. Many things can be done
to achieve this. 1 hope to return to
Raleigh and form a community
development corporation such as
the one that exists for West Gre-
enville and is doing a beautiful
job. Such an organization would
have a multi-faceted purpose. It
would seek to bring more indus-
try into my black community and
to see that these corporations are
hiring people from that commu-
nity. I am going to try to get people
to volunteer time to help improve
each other's homes (such as
painting, remodeling, etc.). This
would keep the property values
up. I would coordinate a Youth
Development and Improvement
Project which would provide jobs
and academic enhancement op-
portunities. Another program
would provide special programs
to provide spiritual and intellec-
tual enlightenment in my com-
munity (such as black history,
achievements, challenges and
means of self-improvement).
These are but a few of the
positive works that I will be doing
when I return to my community
very soon. It should be evident
that I will be doing more than just
complaining. If my critics are pre-
pared to walk their talk, I invite
them to join me. I welcome them.
rhe final key to change is
that of self-enlightenment,
awareness and spirituality. As one
reader commented, we do need to
look in the mirror. However, when
that reader talks about God and
Christianity. I must ask is this the
spirituality of the Inquisition, the
one that justified the wholesale
murder of Airican-Americansand
Native Americans or the one that
tells women to shut up and be
submissive? Research shows that
the Greeks reinterpreted the
message of Jesus bar Joseph and
Paul, which cameoutof the region
of colored people, to suit their own
oppressive culture.
Briefly, I want to talk about
the message of Minister Louis
Fa rrakha n. He teaches us to unify.
He brings the Jews, the Christians,
the Muslims and all of these faiths
together because there is but one
God whom we must worship in
spirit and in truth. Truth is freedom
from delusion. All of us share this
delusion, whether we are black,
white, yellow or brown.
Minister Farrakhan teaches
us this: "The white man has a
problem and is a problem to him-
self and others The Black man is
a problem. He is a problem to
himself, and he is a problem to
others. All human beings are
suffering from a problem, and the
problem is not somebody else, the
problem is you, yourself. So each
of us has some facing up to do. But
somebody's got to snow you your
face so that you can face up to your
face and deal with yourself be-
cause you are your worst enemy
This is what I've been saying this
In conclusion, I want to make
the problem dear. The problem is
personal and corporate. We all
share a responsibility for evil, and
we must all work to eradicate it.
Beloved, don't think that Darek
McCullers is a hater of white
people; he is not. However, Elijah
Muhammed teaches that we must
love self, and our own people be-
fore we can love everybody else. I
simply love my people and I am
tired of seeing them oppressed. I
leave you (perhaps this final time)
with the Arabic words of peace

Starting last Wednesday and
going through until Saturday, the

tinues itsoutstandingtradition with
performances choreographed by all
of the dance faculty.
First, Alan Arnett presents his
blend of modem, azz. and ethnic
dance with "Personal Power In-
spired by the quest for freedom and
human rights, Arnett states that the
theme of "each person's ability to
direct his or her own life Com-
posed by Ron Howard, four per-
cussionists will perform live all five
sections of the piece. The Dream,
Struggle, a duet titled Source of
Struggle, Vigilance, and Liberty re
Second, Joe Carow recreates a
ballet piece titled "C .raduationBall "
The music of JohannStraussJr. with
orchestration by Anatole Dorati sets
originally choreographed by David
Lichine. Ballet dancers first per-
formed thispiece in the late'Vs and
Carew has restaged this particular
piece approximately six times; most
of them during his tenure as assis-
tant regissaur at the American Bal
let Theater.
Third, Dawn Clark presents
"Preludes a modern piece inspired
by Gershwin. Clark's choice came
about from her own interest in
Gershwin for fifteen years and the
interest expressed by the accompa-
nist to play this specific music.
With three musically distinct
sections, dancers developed the
piece incollaborati ve improvisation.
Lastly, the piece is thematically
based on "a spatial form of a mixed
Fourth, Pat Pertalion renews
her magnificent modern piece,
"Aquaverse With the basic theme
being one of ocean life, four parts of
the dance serve as metaphors signi-
fying plant life, fish, storms, and life
arising out of the ocean respectively.
Written by Robert C Wright for an
MFA thesis, Pertalion redoes this
piece because of its continued suc-
cess with audiences and to allow
the dancers in the department an
opportunity to "maintain a piece in
repertory Pertalion comments that
repetition "gives me a chance to
fine-tune the work that I normally
wouldn't get
Last, but definitely not least,
Patti Weeks choreographsa modern
piece titled "We all begin as
strangers Weeks worked with
rnaledancersatthe onset with chairs
as props, and then brought in fe-
male dancers. The female dancers
motivated and evolved the present
theme of a chance meeting between
a man and woman.
Weckschose this piece because
of her "love for Tom Waits' musk.
He has been my favorite for years"

In 1957, Duke University tu-
ition was $500 per semester. Grant

which were female. The male stu-
dents there were very kind and
helpful to her. '1 had to do as well as
the males but it was a joy because
everyone was so nice Grant said.
She graduated in the top three per-
cent of her class
Grant married Dr.C Fred Irons,

hrm Nevertheless, the radio indus-
try has marked the most prominent
place in Cox's career and profes-
sional interests. "1 always will have
a fondness for working in radio, tor
actually being on the air he said.
Cox said his work at ECU has
,ts pxxl and bad points. He said he never had a job which he felt
"one hundred percent positive
about He saidDon't take that too
negatively. Every place has its ups
and downs Cox said the gixxl
aspects oi any job should outweigh
the Kid aspects. It not, then it's time
lo move on, he" concluded.
( ox said he enjoyed teaching
most of the courses for which he
was assigned (Communication stu-
dents mainly know him for his in-
struction of the television produc-
tion course.)
Cox said: "I've enjoyed the as-
sociation with the faculty here, both
in the communication department
and in theatre arts. There are some
sharp people, some nice people. All
in all it's been a decent experience
The bad aspects of his job here
is the lack of positive feedback from
people outside the communication
department, he said, as well as the
lack of g(xxi equipment. Funding

we have he said, "1 think we do a
pretty good job because not all of
what we do is based on equipment,
and when we can deal with some-
thing thar'snotequiprnenH)rien ted,
then I think we can do a first-rate
The faculty is good, Cox said,
but more people are needed. The
department needs to expand fur-
ther to accommodate the large in-
flux of communication majors.
Cox pointed out that those in
the communication department
havea strong academic background
and a professional background in
the industry. "I think any depart-
ment of communication has to have
those elements going for it Cox
said. Instructors need to let stu-
dents see how their field relates to
the world, as well as acquaint them
with theories and research.
A certain amount of profes-
sional training and experience needs
to be given to the students to enable
them to start a career. "If your fac-
ulty did not have that professional
experience, then I really don't un-
derstand how they can understand
the industry . . . Our faculty have
that kind of background. We keep
strong ties with the broadcasting
industry and we know whafsgoing
on. So, we're up to date, even if our

Broadcasting and journalism,

"I like students who think fairly
logically and who care about their
subject . . . We have some good

One of Cox's proudest mo-
ments occurred last March when he
served as executive producer of the
first satellite teleconference to origi-
nate from ECU.
His team of people worked with
the Health Sciences Communica-
tions Center in order to get the
teleconference produced. An in-
teractive microwave network was
established "all up and down the

Woe is the life of a Pirate fan.
The only thing Pirate fans
haw Kvn able to look forward to
over the last season Ks Kvn the
unenviable position oi underdog
� and this vear, even, one kicked
the underdog
This war started out horribly
for Pirate Athletics. It seemed that
ECU could not win a single game
� in anything. And it was not for
lack of promise.
Football season was no real
surprise. We could have had a
winning season, but then, Pirate
fans are used to "could haves" �
especially in football.
The ECU football team has
not Kid a winning season since
1963 and this wars 5-6 turnout
was no different.
The 1989 season gave Pirate
fans a taste of what could be. With
a new coach and an exciting new
playing stvlc tK Pirate's managed
their first non-losing season in
sewn years
But the Pirates backslid in
1990, losing big games to Temple
and Virginia Tech, continuing the
losing tradition to which ECU
fans are accustomed.
Then came basketball season.
Both the men's and the Women's
teams played badly.
The men went 12-lh (4-10 in
the Colonial Athletic Association),
and uie women went 12-17 U-8 in
Highlights for the season
were freshman Lester Lyons, who
was named CAA Rookie Player of
the Year as well as junior Tonya
Hargrove, who was named CAA
Plaver of the Year.
The men's basketball team
suffered from losing sophomore
Stew Richardson Kvause of
disciplinary reasons � something
even powerhouse Lvons and
senior Ike Copeland were unable
to make up for.
The women's team also
suffered from lack of depth.
Senior forward Sandra Grace,
although still playing, was forced
to plav with an injured knee
which hampered her game
But, afterall, a team would
not be a winning team if they
were unable to plav with one or
two plawrs on the Knch.
ECU is not seen as an athletic
powerhouse in Eastern North
Carolina, and the reason is not
lack of talent.
Perhaps the problem is that
ECU, the third largest school in
North Carolina, is seen as the
step-child scKxil of the South,
unlike George Mason, James
Madison or any of ECU'S other
CAA competitors.
People sign with ECU when
thev are I ejected from N.C. State,
Duke or UNC-Chapel Hill
But maybe, the reason is that
bv over-publicising three or four
sports, ECU has been shucking
their real talents into the back-
ECU's "money sports" have
not been playing up to snuff this
year. But many of ECU'S non
revenue sports have had excep-
tional seasons.
The ECU men's swim team
went 8-2, and the women went 7-
3 this season. And altKuigh the
women's cross country team did
not fare incredibly well as a
w hole, runner Ann Mane Welch
dominated the conference and
placed second in the CAA finals.
The ECU track team, always
dominant, had vet another
impressiw vear, finishing third in
the CAA tournament.
In club sports, the Pirate
ruggers won tK?ir second State
title in a row last fallnd were
well on their way to a third this
spring but they were upset by
N.C. State in the tournament.

Parsons leads softball team with 20 victories
Parsons records six shutouts as team moves to 25-15 on the season
By John Carter
Staff Writer
Sophomore pitcher Jenny Par-
sons has accomplished much for
the ECU softball team. She is 2O10
for the season with six shutouts.
Parsons hasbeen pitching since
she was a freshman and was named
outstanding pitcher last year with a
12-3 record.
This year she is team captain,
and she leads the team on the
mound. Over the past two weeks
she has pitched two complete
double-headers, winning all tour
games. She picked up her sixth
shutout over the weekend as well
as a one-hitter.
"Jenny is a leader head coach
Sue Manahan said. "Shedoesagood
job keeping calm on the mound,
and she shows much more matu-
rity than the average sophomore
Without Parsons on the mound,
the team is 5-5. Out of 40 games
Parsonshasa .667 winning percent-
age, an impressive record for a
sophomore. As team captain she
has the respect of the other players
and she respects her teammates as
well. She has also earned the re-
spect oi opposing hitters by re-
cording 99 strike outs so far this
Parson's strongest point is her
pitching but she is alsoan excellent
all-around player. When not on the
mound, Parsons plays first base and
anchors the team from there. She
can also hold her own at the plate
with a 214 batting average with 10

Gast looks to

By Jingle Bottomly
Special to the East Carolinian
Every year in the beginning of
June many baseball dreams are ei-
ther fulfilled or smashed. The pro-
fessional baseball draft takes place
at this time of the year. But, some
players have the luxury of being
able to decide if they were selected
high enough to their liking.
ECU's John Gast is one of those
player's who rolled the dice and
decided to stay around at ECU an-
other year. Cast a 21st round se-

thanks to the Red's offer, but no

barely a winning record, in this
year of mediocrity, perhaps that
should be considered pretty good.
The softball team is living up
to its wininng tradition so far this
year. The Lady Pirates, with the
exception of 1989, have not had a
losing season in their history and
went 27-13 last year. This season,
they are 25-14.
For a large number of people,

Local interest group awaits
national fraternity charter
Staff Water
Greek organizations at ECU
continue to grow. A local sorority
was started this semester, and a
national sorority is coming to ECU
in the fall.
Fraternities arc no exception.
An interest group called Delta Chi
Alpha petitioned the national
headquarters of Delta Chi, and on
March 21 began a colony on this
"The colony started out as a
group of friends who wanted to start
a fraternity Vice President Dan
Robbins said.
Robbins said he used to attend
the University of Georgia, where
about 35 percent of the student body
is Greek.
"At Georgia, if you weren't
Greek you were nothing he said. "I
wanted 10 experience brotherhood,
but 1 didn't want to be part of the
Stereotype. I wanted to be a creator
Kevin Kostoff. a Delta Chi
leadership consultant, said there are a
lot of different individuals in the
"Right now. there is no
stereotypical Delta Chi at East
Carolina, and that's a real benefit to
them he said.
Not only is Delta Chi the first
fraternity to ban haing, but pledges
arc called "associate members
Kostoff said this is because
traditionally, "pledge" and "haing"
arc synonymous words.
He added that Delta Chi was
founded as a legal fraternity in 189(),
thus creating the term "associate
member sort of like "associate
judge He said the organization
became a social fraternity in 1929.
Members must have a 2.4
GPA. "If a student doesn't have a
2.4 then he cannot accept the
responsibility of being a founding
father Kostoff said.
All of the founding fathers of
the ECU colony are currently
associate members. Kostoff said
they will go through an initiation
ceremony, which will probably be
conducted by the N.C. Slate chapter.
He added that ECU'S colony should
become a chapter next March.
The fraternity colors are red and
buff, the flower is the white
carnation and their values are mainly
honor and justice, which goes back
to the fraternity's beginning.
Kostoff said Delta Chi has not
adopted a national philanthropy, but
they do a lot of work with children
and encourage big brother programs.
"It seems io oc something Uie
brothers enjoy doing he said. "We
also do programs with abused
children to show them that there arc
men out there who care
Robbins said membership is
increasing quickly. They went from
about 12-20 members to 40 in one
Kostoff said his goal for the
ECU colony is to have at least 50 or
60 men. "It's the optimal number
of men that can compete on this
campus he said.
According to Kostoff, some
famous andor prominent men are
Delta Chi alumni: William
Sessions, the director of the F.B.I
Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham
Lincoln's son; and actor Kevin
Costner. who donated S35,000 last
year to his chapter.
Robbins said the colony
members have been busy trying to
get recognized by fraternities,
sororities and the inter-fraternity
"So far. things are going
smoothly he said. "Everyone has
been very supportive and helpful

Recent studies show that drinking on
college campuses is overwhelming
Crime on college campuses is down
Staff Water
Every 4.3 minutes, a larceny
occurs on college campuses. Every
12.5 minutes, someone commits
vandalism. Every 27 minutes, a
burglary occurs. Every one hour and
43 minutes, an auto is stolen. Every
two hours and 12 minutes, a violent
crime occurs. Every three hours and
20 minutes, somonc is assaulted,
every nine hours and 30 minutes, a
robbery takes place and every 21
hours, a rape occurs.
Knowing these statistics, do
you feel safe on the ECU campus?
Actually, you should.
According to a USA Today College
Campus Crime Survey (Dec. 3,
1990) of 15 colleges in North
Carolina, ECU (pop. 11,651) is
ranked the seventh-safest campus in
1989, up from 12 in 1987. Duke
(pop. 9,282) has the highest crime
index rate�65 per 1.000 students.
Wake Forest's (pop. 5,337) is 57
per 1,000, and N.C. State's (pop.
25.537) is 39 per 1,000 students.
Some reasons for ECU's
decrease in crime arc: more crime
education programs by Public
Safety, articles, new lighting and
students getting serious about their
personal safety, according to Lt.
Keith Knox, Crime Prevention.
UNC-G and N.C. Stale had the
most violent crimes in 1989. ECU
is tied for first, with Appalachian,
Campbell and Duke in responding to
In 1989, N.C. Slate had 641
total alcohol and drug violations.
ECU had 227.
Duke and N.C. Slate have the
most incidents of vandalism at 480
and 312 respectively.
ECU is second in CrimeSafety.
CrimeSafety is the "measurement
of a school's crime rale, based on
the number of crimes the school
rcposrtcd, and how much the school
is doing to Hnght crime according
io USA Today. The rates arc then
averaged together.
There arc 3.2 crimes for every
1,000 students, bul Public Safety
docs a lot to help Tight these crimes,
the survey showed. ECU has 445
students per officer, whereas NC
Stale has 774, Elon (pop. 3,305)
1,102, Chapel Hill (pop. 23,579)
943 and Duke 98. ECU has a lot of
crime, but the safely rate evens it
But, Public Safely alone cannot
help fight crime on campuses.
For instance, take auto theft and
break-ins. Do you leave valuable
items in clear view? Do you leave
your car unlocked? Is your car left in
a secluded area where il can easily be
broken into or taken without anyone
and out in 30 to 40 seconds, Knox
In 1990, 720 residence hall
doors were propped open. Knox said,
"Whoever propped that one door
open just endangered evcryoncs life
More student reserves have been
hired to patrol the dorms and make
sure they arc secure.
Rape. Acquantaincc or date rape
is as big a problem as a stranger
Do you know the male you
just met well enough to walk home
alone with him from downtown or
even to invite him into your room?
You could know the guy for years,
and he could still rape you.
Walking home with female
friends or even carrying a whistle or
other type of alarm such as ECHO
would be good, said Knox.
Trust is a very big problem
among college students. Knox said,
"Every student trusts everybody.
They think "They are my age and
it's not going to happen to me
"Student apathy is the most
serious safety problem on the
nation's colleges said campus

Many surveys of alcohol use on
college campuses have shown that
about 90 percent of all college un-
dergraduates drink.
Because of the attention given
to the problems of illegal drugs in
this country, Americans sometimes
forget that alcohol is the No. 1 drug
likely to be abused.
A poll was taken during 1986-
1990 by Jerry Lottcrhos and Dr.
Donald Holbcrt of East Carolina
University and Elbcrt Glover of
Pennsylvania Stale University. The
study showed thai 85 percent of the
students who use alcohol had begun
using it regularly by age 18.
Lottcrhos, Holbcrt and Glover's
survey showed that 5 percent of
drinking is done at fraternities and
sororities; the majority is done at
parties or in dorm rooms.
An anonymous fraternity
member agreed with the study
and criticized society's view of
Greek organizations.
"People think all fraternities and
sororities arc like the movie
'Animal House but we're not he
said. "They believe the bad party
reputations they hear without ever
looking into the validity of them
Lottcrhos said that based on
national studies of alcohol use
on college campuses, ECU is
below average.
"The local perception of ECU is
the opposite, but compared to other
southeastern schools of the same
size, ECU is a shade conservative
he said.
In a separate survey, conducted
in March, that included 70 ECU
students chosen at random, 35
percent of those polled said there is a
history of alcoholism in their
families. Of those polled, 31 percent
said they, too, might have a
drinking problem.
One anonymous student said
people who have never been to
college think all students are alike.
"They don't know what college
is really like she said. "They don't

know mc. They put me in with the
hellion stereotype, and I don't
even drink
Ten people in the independent
survey said either they don't drink or
they have quit drinking. An uniden-
tified student said he stopped
drinking because something he said
to someone when he was drunk cost
him his friendship.
The same survey showed that
about 31 percent of those polled said
they have slowed down their drink-
ing habits since they began college.
The main reason was their grades.
More than half of the students
polled in March said drinking done
by high school students is fine if
kept under control and if they do not
drive while drunk.
Most of those polled strongly
disapproved of junior high school
students drinking. "They're loo
young" was the only reason staled.
The use of alcohol by young
people is noi all to worry about.
Drinking and driving is also a
major problem.
Of those polled in March, more
than half have driven a car while
under the influence of alcohol.
Seventy-two percent of them said
they had done it more than once.
Two reported gelling DWI's.
Career planning helps seniors

May graduates can expect a
competitive search for jobs. The
Career Planning and Placement
Service helps to make this search
easier and more successful.
The Career Planning and
Placement Service, located between
Mendenhall Student Center and
Greene Hall, serves as a provider of
information and counseling about
different career opportunities.
Seniors should register for
services at the beginning of their
last academic year. Registration is
also open to graduates of East
Carolina and students who are
currently enrolled in ECU Graduate
School. The services are free to
students and alumni up to one year
following graduation. A fee is
charged after this time.
The service is headed by Jim
Westmoreland. He said the biggest
responsibility of the center is to
work with seniors and graduates to
help them learn how to search for
appropriate careers. Programs
offered to help with this, are writing
better resumes, interview skills and
dressing for success.
Information including annual
reports, videotapes and brochures
about different companies are
available at the student's request.
Major companies such as Xerox,
Burlington Industries and First
Citizen's Bank send representatives
to interview students at the center.
According to the placement
service, the employment fields in
demand now are business retail,
health, sciences and engineering.
Although these fields are in demand,
the service expects the job market
has been "very competitive" due to
the economic recession.
Westmoreland also said, "The
people who find satisfactory
employment, are those who are
willing to learn the techniques of the
job search and investigate every
opportunity. " The Career Planning
and Placement Service is an
excellent way to take up the difficult
task of job hunting said senior
Stacey Goode.
The Career Planning and
Placement Service can benefit
students by assisting them on their
way to finding a good job and
helping them every step of the way.

Communication department finds a new chairman
and a new speech professor in California couple
Staff Writer
After more than a year ol
searching, the ECU communication
department has finally found its man
. . . and woman!
Dr. Harrell Allen will join
ECU's communication department
this summer as us new chair, and
his wife, Dr. Mary-Ann Leon, will
also be a new addition to the
communication department's staff
Both are currently employed al
California State Polytechnic
University at Pomona in the
communications department.
The two said they arc anxious
and excited about their move to
Greenville, and although they have
been happy in California, East
Carolina appears to be the type of
university where they can be
productive and comfortable.
Allen, who earned his doctorate
in communication theory al Ohio
State University, said he has some
solid ideas about how to get his
productivity started.
Allen said he has a three-step
outline of what he considers
important for VCV, and one of those
steps is 10 develop a curriculum
toward the world of work. He said
he believes one way to accomplish
this is by setting up an
advisory council with three to
five professionals in various
communications fields, so that
students, faculty and professionals
can help each other learn what is
important Bo work together.
Allen said he also hopes to hold
seminars and put together a media
day. He said that working on these
goals would be a step toward another
of his priorities, which is
developing closer ties to the
professional community.
Lastly, Allen said he hopes
recruiting additional faculty will
help strengthen new areas for the
department. The communication
department has already taken a step
in that direction with the newly
created speech communications
position Leon will fill.
Leon, who earned her doctorate
in communication theory in Kansas,
said she is looking forward to con-
tributing hard work and new ideas to
the communication department. She
said she would like to develop more
public relations courses and
organizational communication
courses geared toward corporate
communications. Leon will leach a
business and professional speech
course during second session
summer school.
-Quality people notice
quality work, and past
that, I don't worry
about it
�Dr. Mary-Ann Leon
Leon said that she and her
husband enjoy working together but
she has come in contact with people
who assume there is favoritism
involved in the work relationship.
Her response, "Quality people
notice quality work, and past that, 1
don't worry about it
She said that she and her
husband were impressed with both
the laculty and the university
thev are planning another u
Greenville in Slav and would
meeting any interested students.
Both Allen and Leon h
heard "rumors" that mcr.
the broadcasting and journ.
programs has not been M
easj transition to make. Thev
stressed the importance of focusing
on the communication department
as a whole, raiher than just
broadcasting or jiximahsm.
"Journalism mav be more
theory, and broadcasting mav
represent more of applving the
practice, but 1 believe theory is
problem-solving and is pracucal and
that bringing the two together
makes one whole Allen said.
Dr. Mane Farr, East Carolina"s
acting chair for the communication
department, said she is very please:
with the department's decision in
hiring Allen and Leon. Farr took on
the responsibility as acting chair
two years ago. Even though she
knew it was only temporary, she
said she feels "a little pang" as she
steps down.

Since it is impossible to only
experience eustrcss, rather than
distress, it is important to explore
ways to reduce stress.
Suannc Kellerman. from
ECU's health center, offered several
helpful suggestions.
1. Organize your time by
setting priorities. Make a list each
of what you need to accomplish.
2. Fat a balanced diet. Too
much alcohol, caffeine and sugar can
contribute to irritability or fatigue.
3. Flan to spend some time
alone each day to clear your mind
arjd relax.
4. Study on a regular basis.
Putting things off to the last minute
and cramming will only increase
your stress.
5. Take study breaks every
hour. Go for a walk down the hall or
exercise. This should give you the
energy you need for more studying.
6. Get enough sleep and rest.
7. Don't be afraid to say no.
Don't ovcrcxtend yourself by trying
to do more than you are capable of
Kellerman also suggests that
students stay in tune with
themselves ami any "odd" behavioral
patterns, such as considering
harming oneself. She said students
should realize that these patterns
may mean one is experiencing a
serious stress Overload.
According to Kellerman, the
best tip for test time this spring is
to try to manage your stress and
plan ahead at exam time.
Caffeine and nicotine are just two "quick- fixes" that
Jennifer Flesca and other students turn to when experi-
encing "negative" stress. Healthier suggestions include a
balanced diet and regular study breaks. Remember not to
be afraid to say no. Don't overextend yourself by trying to
do too many things at once (Photo by Caroline Haire)

arms, etc.
Whether it's just a few extra
pounds you want to drop or if you
have set a major goal, several
options are available.
One way to forfeit the flab is the
route of programs such as those
offered by The Diet Center, located
on Oakmont Drive. According to
Linda Tripp of The Diet Center, it
lakes $90 to gel started. The
Diet Center conditionally
guarantees a loss of up to 10 pounds
in two weeks.
The program also oilers a free
consultation that involves
discussing your weight loss goal,
your nutritional needs and how
much weight loss would be right
for you.
The same $90 can get you into
Weight Watcher's "Quick Start"
program, where a loss of 10 pounds
is also expected in two weeks.
Although the programs may sound
simple, they arc only for those who
arc serious about shaping up.
Carol Ann Buck, former ECU
student and Weight Watcher, got
results but almost feels the weight
loss was not worth the trouble. "The
weekly wcigh-ins always
embarrassed me Buck said. "I
think if I ever put the 15 pounds back
on, I probably wouldn't go back. I
never want to have to weigh another
piece of chicken again
Another option is the infamous
liquid diet. Remember how great
Oprah Winfrey lx)kcd when she went
on a liquid diet two years ago? She lost
67 pounds m three months thanks to a
commercial diet plan called

�Amy Smith
Have you seen Oprah Winfrey
lately? Unfortunately, she has gained
most of her original weight back.
Maybe these diets do not work for
everyone, as some of their ads say.
For instance, one of the most
popular liquid diets on the market
today is "Ultra Slim-Fast This
particular product boasts in its
advertising, "Just have one shake for
breakfast, another for lunch and then a
sensible dinner However, most of
the Slim-Fasters I have talked to say
if they have their first delicious
shake of the day at around 9 a.m by
about 9:15. they arc ready for six
more of those delicious shakes.
However, this is not true for
everyone. Amy Smith, an avid
"Slim-Fast" user, said: "The
shakes really aren't so bad, and they
do suppress my appetite. What mosl
people don't realize is that you
absolutely must exercise along with
the program.
"It's included in the plan. Just
cutting back on calorie intake
usually doesn't do the trick
The type of exercise the
program suggests does not mean
going for one of those '90s fcel-thc-
burn bodies; it suggests some form
of daily activity, such as walking or
bike riding.
Smith said: "I've lost 20
pounds, and I'm still losing. But it
hasn't been entirely easy.
"Sometimes it's quite difficult
not to have a full meal during the
early part of the day, and the diet
won't work unless you follow the
plan. It's really hard at times not to
go out for lunch with friends
Obviously the word here is
willpower. But, a dicier should not
believe that a low caloric count
alone will do it all.
Tripp said: "The diet patient
must lcam to work in an exercise
routine within his program and ulti-
mately change his eating habits and
lifestyle. Education is the key
Looking for a room?
Apartments offer
variety of options
Staff Writer
If you arc looking for
somewhere to live, Greenville has
many options.
Apartments arc popular with
East Carolina University students,
although the decision of which
apartment to lease is difficult due to
the different features and prices.
Tar River Estates is an
apartment complex made up of
mostly ECU students. Tar River
offers one two- and three-bedroom
Tar River is so popular that the
management has a mandatory
waiting list.
Kim Quinn, Tar River's leasing
consultant, said: "We have a
waiting list for May through August
and one for August alone. August is
the worst time because everyone is
looking for a place to live
Tar River is six blocks from
ECU campus on Willow Street. The
management requires a one-year
lease, and the rent ranges from $325
for a one-bedroom apartment to
$515 for a thrcc-bedroom apartment.
Quinn said that people on the
waiting list can be guaranteed a one-
or two-bedroom apartment, but there
are no three-bedroom apartments
available for the upcoming fall
Another popular apartment
complex among students is Wilson
Acres, which leases two- and three-
bedroom apartments. Wilson Acres
is located on East First Street,
dirccdy across from Tar River. The
rent is $405 for a two-bedroom
apartment and $500 for a thrce-
bedroom apartment
Some apartments are not as
expensive as Tar River and Wilson
Acres. Campus Suites II, Carriage
House, Pirate's Landing and Shore
Drive are just a few of the lower-
priced complexes.
Some apartments, such as
Oakmont Square, Plantation and
Ringgold Towers, are furnished.
Other apartments, such as Cedar
Court, Cypress Gardens and River
Bluff, allow pets.
A person can look through the
phone book, call various apartment
complexes, look through The East
Carolinian, go to the off-campus
housing department at ECU or do all
of these to find the apartment that is
best suited for that person.
Students should start as early as
possible to find an apartment before
the best apartments arc leased.

Bunny's ishoppin'
Staff Writer
Downtown Greenville is a
popular getaway for East Carolina
University students.
Wednesday through Saturday arc
the hot nights to be downtown.
Club establishments in the
downtown area base the majority of
their business on students.
When school is out, the clubs
and restaurants lose quite a bit of
business. Sometimes they close
their doors early as Arif Safi, the
owner of Bunny's, said.
"Basically there was no
business anywhere during Spring
Break Safi said. "I started closing
early, about six or seven because
there was no business.
"I opened a couple of nights to
see if business would be
worthwhile. It just didn't pay off
Safi has been the owner of
Bunny's for about two months and
has seen many changes in his
restaurant and the students.
"Business wise, it is probably
four times as much as when I
bought it Safi said.
Bunny's is becoming more
popular with ECU students.
Aubrey Stimpson, an ECU
senior, said there is always a crowd
at Bunny's every time he goes.
"I feel that students arc looking
for something new Stimpson said.
"Places like Bunny's and
Flamingo's have a new ?nd relaxed
atmosphere especially with the
outdoor patios, even though Sub
Station has always had one
Jeff Silvcrman, a Sub Station
employee, said their business has
not been hurt by Bunny's. He said
their advantage is that they have
been there longer and have seen
competition before.
The Elbo Room and Bogies are
two of the familiar and popular
downtown dance clubs.
" feel that students
are looking for
something new
�Aubrey Stimpson
Both of these clubs are similar
yet they do have their differences.
On Friday nights at the Elbo
Room, they have happy hour, which
consists of free hors d'oeuvres and
free admission until 9 p.m.
Wednesday nights at Bogies is
progressive night, which features
new-age music.
Both the Elbo Room and
Bogies have free admission for ladies
on Thursday nights.
When deciding where to go on a
certain night, Stimpson said he
checks to see if anything special is
going on downtown.
Stimpson said: "I usually go
to Bogies. I just prefer the
atmosphere and the people.
"The prices are comparable
between the Elbo Room and Bogies
so that really doesn't make a
difference to me
At different times, the Elbo
Room and Bogies have contests to
attract students lo their club, such as
a bikini or lip-sync contest.
"If there is something special
going on at a certain place, I will
most likely go to that club
Stimpson said.
James Frye, an Elbo Room
employee, said, "During the year
that I have been here, business
hasn't gotten worse, it has only
gotten better and better

Volunteers help
with Greenville
Special Olympics
Staff Writer
The Special Olympic games
mean as much to its disabled
participants as the Olympic Games
mean to the top athletes of America.
These "Olympics" involve a lot
more than just helping out disabled
children for the day. They arc de-
signed to bring together as many
disabled children as possible for a
fun-filled day of various activities.
The Pitt County participants come
from Greenville and its surrounding
Volunteers have an important
role in these games, as do the
participants. On the day of the
games, volunteers arrive at the
designated school where they are
assigned to a specific group. From
this group, volunteers arc paired
with one particular child.
Torry Davidson, a volunteer in
the Special Olympics said, "The
reason 1 volunteered is because I am
a special education major, and 1 love
working with kids
They then act as big brothers or
big sisters to these participants. The
volunteers make sure that each child
gets to all of his or her scheduled
They are responsible for their
child for the entire day, not just for a
certain event. When the day's events
arc complete, they take the
participant back to the original
group where they say good-bye.
This volunteers' job does not
just involve taking the children from
event to event. It also includes giv-
ing the children some basic moral
support. The volunteers are there to
cheer on the children as well as to
give them a hug when they
complete their event.
The Special Olympians
participate in many various events.
These events are made as close to
the Olympic track and field events as
possible. They include running
races, various relay races, and the
shot put. In many cases, the
participants actually throw tennis
balls instead of putting the shot.
"What is great about the Special
Olympics is that they don't stress
winning. Everybody is a winner
Davidson said.
Each event is divided based on
sex. They are also divided into
different age groups.
Moreover, volunteers mean as
much to these children as the events
do themselves. These volunteers in-
clude ECU faculty, athletes, sorority
and fraternity members and local
community members. Just about
anyone can be a volunteer.
The Special Olympics take
place at local levels all across the
state of North Carolina. This year,
though, the games take on a
different meaning in Greenville.
Greenville has been chosen as the
site of the Statewide Special
Olympics. The Special Olympics
will take place May 30-June 2.
Scuba diving offers summer fun
By Joe Corley
Staff Writer
Greenville and eastern North
Carolina have more to offer in the
summertime than the typical down-
town scene or a lazy day at the beach.
For the adventurous type, one
question comes to mind: Ever tried
scuba diving?
The North Carolina coast,
known as the "Graveyard of the At-
lantic offers many interesting
places to dive. There are a multitude
of wrecks off the coast that provide
fascinating places to go diving.
These wrecks date back to the Span-
ish fleets. The Monitor, a ship from
the Civil War era, is also sunk off the
North Carolina coast. These wrecks
arc fascinating not only for their his-
tory, but also because of the
various sea life that thrives in the
wreck areas.
Shipwrecks are not the only
man-made diving spots that exist off
shore. In 1987, the old Atlantic
Beach bridge was replaced with a
new high rise bridge. The old bridge
was sunk in 55 feel of water two
miles offshore.
According to ECU dive expert
Ray Scharf, there is no need to worry
about finding the various dive sites in
our state. There arc many dive shops
along the coast which charter boats to
lake you directly to the dive sites.
Before prospective divers hit the
water they will need to obtain a few
items. First of all, and most important,
arc the mask, snorkel, and fins. If the
water is going to be cold the diver will
also need to obtain a wctsuit.
There is also other equipment
which is essential to the scuba diver.
This includes the tank, regulator and
"octopus" or spare regulator. This is
the equipment which allows the diver
to brcath while under water. Another
vital piece of equipment is the pres-
sure gauge which tells the diver how
much air he has in his tank.
One piece of equipment which is
not essential, but is very helpful is the
diving knife. This tool will provide the
diver with protection and is useful to
have around.
Scuba diving has many purposes.
For example, in Florida there is a lob-
ster season when one can actually go
and catch lobster free of charge. That
sure beats the price a restaurant would
charge for a lobster.
In North Carolina no such luck is
to be found. However, the diving off
the North Carolina coast is no less
North Carolina is unique among
Atlantic Coast states because of it's
proximity to the Gulf Stream. Here
divers can swim year round without a
wetsuii. The water temperature in the
Gulf Stream remains around 70 de-
grees even during the winter months.
While the best season to go
scuba diving is the summer, that docs
not mean it is the only season to dive.
The diver just has to remember to
dress appropriately. There arc sev-
eral different styles of wetsuits avail-
able to keep the diver warm in cold
If you're interested in divingand
would like to learn more, then you are
in luck. According to Scharf, the
Director of the Aquatics and Diving
Safety program at East Carolina,
"ECU has one of the most prolific
diving programs in the country with
over thirteen hours of diving classes
So, when the temperatures in
Greenville become unbearable this
summer, remember that scuba diving
is a fun way to stay cool. But be
careful, you may learn something in
the process of having fun.

For many people, April means
the start of baseball, tennis and other
spring sports. But to East Carolina
football coach Bill Lewis, April
means the start of spring practices
and another exciting season of Pirate
The football players have been
conditioning since January, but
actual practice did not start until
March 27. The NCAA allows
college football teams to hold 15
practices in the spring. Of these, 10
can be in full equipment, while the
remaining practices arc held with
only shorts and headgear.
According to Lewis, the team
for 1991 is shaping up nicely. "For
the first time in our three years here,
we have our entire coaching staff
returning he said. "This, along
with other factors, is hopefully
going to get us over the hump
toward having a successful
The positive attitude of the
returning players is one of these
factors. Lewis said, "The large
group of seniors, along with the
other returning players, has shown
that they are willing to work hard to
do what is asked of them Lewis
added that most of his coaching staff
feels that this positive attitude will
be key in raising Pirate football to a
new level of winning.
Former Pirate
drafted by
new league
Staff Writer
East Carolina became a part of
sports history Feb. 16. Former ECU
player Tony Baker was the first
running back drafted in the WLAF
when the Frankfurt Galaxy tabbed
him as their selection.
Baker, a High Point, N.C
native, is no stranger to professional
football. After leaving ECU, he
played for the Atlanta Falcons,
Cleveland Browns and Phoenix
Cardinals of the National Football
League. Another former Pirate,
James Singletary, plays for the
London Monarchs
Another North Carolinian
figures prominently in the WLAF.
Wilmington native Roman Gabriel,
a former standout for the North
Carolina State Wolfpack and a
professional quarterback, is the
coach of the Raleigh-Durham
The WLAF is a different
concept as far as football is
concerned. Unlike other leagues that
have sprung up, the WLAF is not
designed to compete with the NFL
for players. The concept is to
provide a "minor league" pool for
NFL teams to choose from. Maybe
this will save the WLAF from the
fate suffered by the now-extinct
United States Football League, who
simply could not compete with die
more popular NFL.
Lewis said that the main goal of
the spring practices is to help
players become more adept at the
fundamentals of football. "We are
not where we want to be in the area
of basic football Lewis said. "The
team who is best at passing,
tackling, kicking and other
fundamentals is going to win most
of the lime It is in the spring,
according to the coach, when these
fundamentals are practiced and
Spring practice is also
beneficial to the coaching staff. The
spring is the staffs first chance to
determine who will make up next
year's starling team on bolh sides of
the ball.
The spring practice ended April
20 with a practice football game.
The first-team offense and sccond-
leam defense competed against the
second-team offense and the first-
team defense. By establishing this
format, the coaching staff hoped to
make the contest more like a real
game, with more live situations,
Lewis said.
The 1991 schedule looks like a
challenging one for Piralc football,
and the home schedule is especially
attractive. Among ihe opponents
scheduled lo visit Ficklcn Stadium
this fall will be South Carolina.
Pittsburgh, Tulanc, Akron and
Memphis State. The opponent for
the Pirates in their home opener will
be Memphis Slate.
ECU track has early success
Staff Writer
With the attention of many
spring sports fans on the more
popular softball and baseball, some
people do not realize that the ECU
track team has had a very successful
season up to this point. This
includes having a relay team that
placed third at the NCAA indoor
meet at Indianapolis.
The spring marks a time of
transition for members of the track
team. As the cold of winter gives
way to the warmth of spring, the
track team is moving from its
indoor season to the more natural
circumstances of the outdoor
surfaces. The East Carolina squad
members were trying to build on the
indoor season to lead them into a
successful spring.
Before the outdoor season got
into full swing. East Carolina sent
four representatives to the NCAA
Indoor Championships at
Indianapolis. These four were
William Davis, Fred Owens. Corey
Brooks and Brian Irvin. They made
up the 4x400 relay team. The team
finishi third in the competition
behind teams from Baylor and
Aubum Universities.
Because of this finish, the ECU
relay team members received A1I-
American honors for the second
consecutive year. This honor is
given to all teams that finish in filth
place or higher.
About two weeks following
this success, the ECU runners were
again successful as they traveled to
South Carolina for the Clcmson
Relays. The Pirates brought home
first place finishes in the 400, 800
and 1600 meter relay events.
East Carolina Coach Bill
Carson said that he hopes that the
success of the indoor season and the
early outdoor results will be a good
omen for the remainder of the
season. The team of Davis.Owcns,
Brooks and Irvin will no doubt lead

ECU's baseball team, off to a
slow start, needs a strong finish to
capture the Colonial Athletic
Association tournament crown. The
winner of the tournament, which

ECU, last year's NCAA
Division 1 leader in winning
percentage, will play host to this
year's tournament. The Pirates are
looking for their third consecutive
CAA title and their fourth since the
inception of the conference.
John Gast and Tommy Eason,
both juniors, are keys to the Pirates'
stretch drive. According to Coach
Gary Overton, however, these two
alone cannot carry the team.
Returning seniors Berry Narron,

will also need to contribute.

Sophomore Jiai
John White,

need to provide strong outings from

from a lack of depth. Besides these
four, there are others who can spot

Consistency is another key
factor in the Pirate tournament drive.
"We have had a very inconsistent
season' Coach Overton said. "We
will put together three or four good
games and then all of a sudden the
wheels will fall off
The team struggled early in the
year, with inexperience being a
problem. Several players were
starting in positions where they had
little experience, thus, defensive
problems have cost the Pirates some
Injuries have also been a
problem for the team. Top relief
pitcher Owen Davis is out
indefinitely with a knee injury, and
his replacements are inexperienced.
This has forced Coach Gary Overton
to shuffle players in the field and to
change the roles of some of his
pitchers. However, Overton
said: "Overall, we are in good
physical shape. Our problem has
been in patting together a solid
effort by the entire squad
