Homosexuals could lose funds
The University ot North Carolina at Chapel 1 tills sum-
mer student i onpvss recently voted to terminate funding of
the Carolina Gay and Lesbian Association (CGLA) with
student activity fees.
Accordi ng to the resolution ssponsor. Congress Speaker
Tim Moore, the CGLA advocates homosexual behavior,
which is illegal under North Carolina law. UNC'scongress
is prohibited from funding any organizations that support
illegal activity
However, the CGLA does not promote anv sexual
lifestyle according to information UNCs congress has on
file about the group's constitution.
Opponents of the resolution argue that theorganization
merelv serves the campus in an educational capacity.
Discrimination reports at UNC
The U S Department of Education's Office of Civil
Rights (OCR) has found one case of negligence bv UNC-
Chapel Hill following an investigation into seven recent
discrimination charges.
The lonecasoofnogligonceinvolved a sexual harassment
complaint filed bv a woman in the dentistry school.
According to the OCR's report, university officials did
not respond quickly enough to the woman's complaint.
Although officials had known about the sexual harassment
complaint since 1988, an internal investigation was not
conducted until 1990.
Professor cleared of charges
Dr. Robert David Little, a Library Science professor at
Indiana State University, wasfound not guilty by a Venmillion
Countv jury of the 1982 murder of Steve Agan.
Little had been charged with the crime last December
after Larrv Eyler. a convicted murderer, implicated the 1SL
professor as an accomplice.
Agan was stabbed to death on Dec. 19, 1982, during a
homosexual bondage ritual in an abandoned shack near
Terre Haute, Ind
Several witnesses testified on Little's behalf, saying he
was vi si ting his mother in Florida when the murder occurred.
Hazardous Waste left in limbo
NState University and the Environmental Protection
Agency have been unable to aach an agreement about who
is responsible for cleaning up a hazardous waste disposal
site located about 200 yards from Carter-Finley Stadium.
NCSU began using the site for disposal purposes after
it was approved in 19 and continued to use it until
Congress closed the site to any further use in the early '80s.
Now, until it can be determined who will treat the
disposal site and how to treat the disposal site, nothing
further will be done except to monitor ground water for
contamination twice a year.
Pell Grants may be terminated
If President Bush has his way in 1992, more than 350,000
Pell Grants will be scrubbed from the 1992 budget.
Although theHouseofRepresentatives recently decided
to increase Pell Grant funding by about $2 million. Bush is
pushing for a decrease for next year.
Pell Grants primarily affect students with families in the
$20,000-$25,000 income bracket and are designed to help
college students pay for books and tuition.
Faculty-leave privileges to end
Because of constraints set by recent budget cuts, uni-
versities within the UNC system have been forced to ter-
minate faculty-leave privileges.
In the past, faculty members have been paid while on
university leave to conduct research projects, but according
to UNC Provost Denni s O'Connor, this practice was pu rH ng
too great a strain on universities.
Fee plan could benefit libraries
In a desperation move to save UNC-Chapel Hill's de-
teriorating libraries, Chancellor Paul Hardin's task force
committee has recommended increasing student fees over
a three-year period.
The proposed increases could raise student fees by as
much as $600 if accepted. However, Hardin said the plan
would have to be revised because of a lack of input accepted
from students.
The student fee increase wasoneof 15 recommendations
made by committee. Another proposal suggested a "tax"
earmarked for the library coming from the various sports
and entertainment events that take place on campus.

Teamwork made N.C.S.O. a success
The holding of the N.C. Special Olym-
pics in Greenville was a fine example of
The University, Greenville and Pitt
County all worked together to provide a
weekend of competition for the athletes,
who are people with mental retardation.
ECU allowed the use of athletic fields,
facilities and housing for 1,500 athletes, 700
coaches and 500 family members � more
than what is expected of the University in
the realm of public service.
Not to be outdone, the Pitt Countv
School System helped coordinate some 3,000
volunteers, without which the Special Olym-
pics would not have been possible.
The teamwork of the University, the
county and city shows what can be accom-
plished by working together.
There were also added benefits for ECU
and the area.
The logo for the games, selected through
a competition in the School of Art, was
designed by student Steve Schandel. The
design will be used for next year's Summer
The 1992 N.C.S.O. will also be held in
Greenville. With one year's games success-
fully completed, experienced local volun-
teers will ensure another weekend of fun
and competition for the athletes.
The State Games Director, Connie
Sappenfield, said the 1991 games were a
success. She noted local support � from
both businesses and residents � as part of
that success.
University, city and county officials
need to use the 1991 N.C.S.O. as an example
of what can be accomplished � if people
can just work together.

Lets Be Adamant
Integration kills traditional values
By Darek McCullers
Editorial Columnist
"Let's Be Adamanr is a col-
umn with multiple purposes. It is
the primary purpose of this col-
umn to expose issues that are rel-
evant to the black student popula-
tion of this university. This goal is
achieved through the exploration
and explication of various points
of view within the black commu-
nity. There are basically three
stratum within that community.
There is the emerging black
middle class, which comprises
approximately 30 percent of black
people. This is a community in
transition. They are moving from
a moral community to a commu-
nity of accumulation. In the black
moral community, there was a
strong proclivity to the family. The
family was the central unit of ex-
istence. They prayed together,
worked together, loved each other
and shared one another's hurts
and problems. They exchanged
extra labor unselfishly. For in-
stance, my father continues to
offer his extra time to the family.
He does auto repairs for them free
of charge. Every time something
goes wrong in my grandmother's
home (which my uncle bought for
her after my grand fa ther' s death),
he fixes it.
He serves the family in many
ways. Theentire black community
used to be like that When a child
viola ted communal values in front
of a neighbor, he was punished by
the neighbor and the parents.
When our communal rights were
violated, we stuck together to
change the circumstances � as in
the case of Rosa Parks.
However, his middle class
is changing. As they move to this
economy of accumulation, these
qualities are lost. Suddenly, lines
are demarcated. People are saying,
This is my home, my car, my
everything They begin to value
the dollar more than they do their
community. In fact, they lose their
sense of community.
This is what the Native
Americans expected. Many of
them said, "To hell with integra-
tion, we are a nation Although
conditionsarebad forthem today,
I think they are better off.
I think that if they could
shake off some of the vices that
have been caused by these condi-
tions which were historically
caused by the United States' poli-
cies, they could be a force to be
reckoned with.
The blacks in the upper
middle class are in conflict. As
they become increasingly materi-
alistic and drop the values that are
inherent in the people of Africa �
uwuness, meaning closeness,
unity or tightness � they turn to
religion. This is not against
Christianity, I'm a Christian.
However, I disagree with the
current philosophy because it
disagrees with what Jesus was
It is criminal to think that
one can go to church on Sunday,
give money mat might support
one little mission and think of
themselves as moral. It is criminal
to think that by some verbal pro-
fession, one can reach the heav-
ens. It comes through a deeper
experience. It involves careful in-
trospection, giving the kind of ser-
vice that will change your com-
munity, and abstinence from the
vices that destroy us. This is why
blacks in America cannot come
together. Over a long period of
time our values and life-styles have
been altered by integration. As we
go after these position that have
been laid open before us, we for-
get that the roots nourish the tree.
However, it doesn't have to be
that way if we awaken before it's
too late.
Next you have the masses
and the working classes. These
are over 50 percent. Some of them
are unemployed. Others are un-
deremployed. Some of them are
just working; striving to accumu-
late. Any solution that will help
these people will eventually help
the people of all colors that fall
into this category. They are en-
gaged in an everyday struggle just
to survive. Sometimes in that
struggle, they forget about raising
their children, keeping them off
the streets. Sometimes the men
forget about their patriarchal du-
ties to the children that they make.
Sometimes the black church for-
gets its obligation to provide an
economic uplift as well as a moral
uplift. For this is the Black
American's only autonomous in-
The solution is simple. We
need to wake up and remember
these masses and working classes!

Maxwell's Silver Hammer
It's no joke as Congress debates "quota bill"
By Scott Maxwell
Editorial Columnist
I frequently think Congres-
sional Democratsand Republicans
aren't serious about the laws thev
pass. They can't be. I think they're
colluding with the president to
pull a big (im)prachcal joke, and
the rest of us just haven't caught
on yet. Certainlv the controversial
1991 Cml Rights Bill is evidence
favoring that conclusion.
What upsets the president
and his allies is that they see the
legislation as a "quota bill The
Democrats claim it isn't, noting
that their version specifically
outlaws quotas (which are already
illegal anyway). So the focus of
the debate, or rather the sound-
bite sniping, has been: is it a quota
Yes, of course it's a quota
bill. That's how affirmative action
works in practice: where minori-
ties are underrepresented in a
workplace, employers are under
suspicion. Thanks in no small part
to litigiousness and lnnumeracy,
suspicions tend to turn into law-
The 1991 bill is designed to
overturn SupremeCourt decisions
placing the burden of proof of
wrongdoing where it ought to be,
on the plaintiff. It's hard to prove
a business's hiring practices are
racist, but maybe it ought to be;
the charge is very serious
The Democrats' bill would
require businesses to prove their
hiring practices aren't racist. If you
think it's hard to prove hiring
practices are racist, imagine trying
to prove they're not.
Even if everyone hires fairly,
it stands to reason that some
businesses will employ a smaller
percentage of minorities than are
in the population (just as some
will employ a larger percentage).
Some deviation from the average
is bound to exist. But workplaces
where minorities are
underrepresented won't be ac-
cepted as expected deviations
from the average, they'll be touted
as "evidence of ongoing racism"
and so on.
Who needs that? To avoid
the hassle and expense of law-
suits, businesses must adopt some
sort of quotas. Since quotas are
illegal, they have to aim for
roughly proportionate represen-
tation. (When you see a business
trying to "broaden diversity" or
"increase minority representa-
tion you're probably seeing this
in action.) Result: everyone does
it, and everyone denies it. Mean-
while, the workplace becomes
statistically more balanced,
though not necessarily any less
But here's the part that makes
me think Congress and the Presi-
dent are pulling our legs. If the
Democrats' version of the bill is a
quota bill, so is the Republicans' ver-
sion. The forces that dri veemploy-
ers to adopt de facto quotas under
the Democrats' bill, also thrive
under the Republican bill.
In fact, what's most notable
about the two bills is not how much
they differ, but how little. Let's
compare them, using information
from (mav the gods forgive me)
In the Democrats' version of
the bill, a statistical imbalance in
the workforce is not ipso facto
proof of discrimination. But that's
meaningless: except in extremely
unusual circumstances, if there
were no statistical disparity, there
would be no lawsuit. The Repub-
lican bill is not significantly dif-
How about the burden-of-
proof question? Quoting from
USA TODAY: "Democrats: Once
an employee proves an employ-
ment practice excludes some
groups of workers from a job or
advancement, the employer must
prove the practice is necessary for
the job in question. Republicans:
same Said necessity is defined
almost identically in the bills.
The Democrats' bill states
(unnecessarily) that quotas are il-
legal. The Republicans'bill simplv
doesn't waste ink on the point.
"Race-norming the wide-
spread practice of adjusting em-
ployment test scores on the basis
of an applicant's race, gender,
creed, or whatever, is outlawed
by both bills.
One last interesting feature
shared by the bills is that some
kinds of discrimination an? more
valuable than others. If you didn't
get a promotion because you're a
woman, you may get only $150,000
� oi more, if your "pain and suf-
fering" was particularly expen-
But if you didn't get a pro-
motion because you're black, the
sky's the limit. I'm not sure what
happens if you lost a promotion
both because you're a woman and
because you're black.
In fact, there is onlv one re-
ally tnterestingdifferencebetwttn
the two bills. The difference re-
volves around the way in which
the bill applies to Congress itselt
In the Republican bill, complain
ants may take their case to federal
court if they're unsatisfied with
internal review procedures; in the
Democrats' bill, only the rats guard
the cheese.
(Since I'm thinking about it
let's let this bill really apply to
Congress. In elections, let's add
votes to a candidate's total if the
candidate is female or handi-
capped or a member of a raoai
minority. Ah, darn, we can't: thev
outlawed race-norming.)
Nowhere in either btflfis the
basic issue addrejecTr bjjjifej-
we treat employers as innocent of
wrongdoing until proven guilt
make it reasonably possible to
prove them guilty when they are
and implement affirmative action
but rid ourselves of quotas?
The debate over the 191
Civil Rights Bill is, of course, no
practical joke. It's political jock
eying. The Republicans want to
claim they're foraf firmati ve action
but against quotas, and that the
Democrats are for quotas but
against affirmative action � be-
cause, surprise polls show voters
favor affirmative action but abhor
quotas. The Democrats are trying
to say the same thing about the
Republicans, for the same reasons
But you can't have your cake
and eat it, too. (So what good is
having a cake?) Nobody � Demo-
crat, Republican, or other � has
yet proposed a realistic plan for
affirmative action that won't lead
to quotas. Other than widespread
fairness and honesty, of course,
which is impossible to legislate
into existence.
No, it's no joke. And ifs not

I am talking about an occu-
pation where an officer's life is
threatened on a daily basis, and
they are working to protect inno-

law, officers enforce it. I am not
in agreement with the extent to
which they sometimes imple-
ment the law, using the infamous
treatment of Rodney King in
California recently as an ex-
ample. But, people should think
before they break the law. The
officers that "ask questions first
and then shoot" are some of the
ones we read about in obituaries.
There are racial and dishon-
est people in ALL occupations,
black and white. The police force
is doing what is expected of them.
If wedid not have them, we would
be extremely over-run with crime.
Please take the time to appreciate
this elite group of people and help

World Entertainment War lacks battle cry

Features Editor
If you ask members of the
band World Entertainment War
what kind of music they play,
one of the things they would say
is that it is, "macho, feminist,
love, poop
WEW has also described
their music as, Jungian, beatnik,
funk or psychedelic, war, bal-
lads and tribal, metal, folk, mu-
sic. The music on W EW's first LP
is more like plain, unintelligible,
convoluted poop
1anv reviewers and pro-
moters of the band like to associ-
ate them with the word "heady

bitious writer down at MCA

dared to call it "smart rock
Well, if the album succeeds
in turning over a profit than
somebody somewhere is smart,
in a fox-like way. It would take a
genius to market such a heap of
confusion into anything but an
amusing experiment.
It is true that the band ap-
pears to be familiar with a the-
saurus in their lvrics, but the one
word they left out was coherent.
The lvrics of the album are spat-
tered on the songsheets without
anv direction.
More than a couple of bands
have cut the mustard without
concrete lyrical content (REM,
Pixies, etc.) but at least they man-
aged to present their garble in a
way that aroused curiosity.

two instruments are playing the
same song. Santa Cruz Califor-
nia was the original stomping

the band was unable to attain
any rhvthmic consistency from
the surroundings of the bounti-
ful Pacific.
Going plainly on the back-

bers (their are four females and
four males) there may be a slim
rav of hope for these apostles of
post-punk dillirium.

to show it. It's aimed at tans of
campy movies, those movies with
outlandish behavior usually sexual
In the past four-to-five years I
had heard of the deceased and hi-
lariously tunny female imperson-
ator Divine. The last movie he
starred in was "Hairsprav Divine,
who weighed over 300 pounds, was
discovered by the late Andy Warhol
and got his big break in the biz by
director David Lvnch of "Twin
Peaks" fame.
Hestamvl m several of l.vnch's
films. Looking forward to what
people had told me 1 was receptive
ti i wha lever fla shed onthe tv. screen
in front of me. "Lust in the Dust"
sticks pretty close to its title. It is set
in the old wild west. Divine, in the
beginning, portrays a innocent,
fresh-young thing seeking fame as
a singer.
Wandering through the desert
she becomes ambushed by a gang
of sweaty, deranged, sex-crazed
outlaws who take ad vantage of her.
The joke is on them though as they
are left drained in the wind-blown
dust by Divine.
Eventually she makes her way
to a small town and an even smaller
canteen where she looks for work
as a singer. She meets Marguerite
the canteen owner, a very salsy,
sexy, smart woman. And shortly
after Divine's arrival a handsome,
mysterious stranger rides into town.
Unknown to Divine the entire
town for years has been searching
for a buried treasure. One night
after bed hopping, sneaking about
and eavesdropping Margueriteand
Divine discover the map to the bur-
ied treasure; it happens to be tat-
tooed to their butts.
Each has on her butt one half of
the map. They discover where the
treasure is and let your imagma tion
run wild on how they put the map
together. After digging up the
treasure there isa Mexican standoff
between Marguerite, Drvineand the
handsome stranger.
The movie leaves the viewer
watching the good looking but
slightly dumb hero ride off into the
sunset with the treasure, leaving
Divine and Marguerite to become
buzzard food.
Compared toother low budget
movies, Lust in the Dust" ranks in
the top 10 along with "The Rocky
1 lorror Picture Show" because of
the movie's comic sense and fresh
approach to the old west.
If you are into spoofs of the
wild west, campy jokes and female
impersonators then this is a great
film to see for a belly-slapping good
time. Since it was my first time
seeing Divine and not having any
idea of what to expect, 1 was pleas-
antly pleased.
1 lookbackon Clint Eastwood's
earlier westerns like "Fist Full of
Dollars and "The Good, the Bad,
and the Ugly" as earlier and tamer
versions of "Lust in the Dust But
with Divine you get more of an off-
the-wall sense of humor.
1 recommend this film for any-
one who likes westerns, Divine, B
movits and raunchy humor. You'll
certainly get an eye and ear full.
You just might become a Divine
fan. Other movies starring Divine
are 'Tolyester "FemaleTrouble

Rumors fly amidst Bunny's reopening
By Matt Jones
Staff Writer
If you are a regular pursuer of
late- night downtown entertain-
ment, then you might have recently
noticed the absence of a newly ac-
quired friend.
You may have asked yourself,
what has become of the place that 1
know and love? The place where
good times go to prosper and bad
times go to drown? In short, what
we all want to know is- what hap-
pened to Bunny's Bar & Grill?
Rumors were everywhere.
Some said Bunny's was closed be-
cause of shaky financing. Others

speculated alcohol violations to be
the cause. Some even suspected
sanitation problems closed the
As usual, the rumors turned
ou . to be somewhat more exciting
than the truth. In an interview with
Bunny's owner, Arif Safi, the real
story was revealed.
It so happened that San had to
travel to Florida because of a family
emergency. He left his business in
the capable hands of a friend.
However, his friend was un-
able to mind the store regularly as
needed becauseofhisschool sched-
ule, so he left the management to
another fnend. This seemed to be
where things started to go wrong.
According to Safi, this fnend
had "a different style of manage-
When Safi finally returned, he
found that their were a number of
things which needed reconciling.
He realized that he would need to
closedown to renovate the building
and since it was the end of the se-
mester, he decided that there was
no time like the present.
It was at this time that the ru-
mors began to spread. When Safi
wasasked about them, he admitted
that one or two did stem from the
"The sanitation inspector told
me I had me 1 had to fix some things
around the kitchen said Safi. "The
biggest job was installing a three-
compartment sink, but the other
things were petty
Another rumor which was cir-
culating among the ECU commu-
nity involved a reported $13,000 of
bad checks which Safi had suppos-
edly written. When this was men-
tioned Safi gave an interesting ie-
"No, no, no, It was only
$12,000 he responded jokingly. "1
don't where they get that stuff. Who
would believe $13,000?"
Safi did mention that with all
hisrenovations,hefinancial reserve
was low. However he appears to be
keeping an optimistic outlook.
Timesare tight he said, "but
I'm going to make it"
Although Safi admits that the
rumors surrounding his business
to be quite exciting, he recants their
"Everything is going just fine
here said Safi, "In fact, the lm-
provernentsl'vemadeshould make
things that much better
Other than the required repairs
made to his restaurant, Safi ai �
used the time he closed to make
other needed additions. He found
that his cooler space was becoming
scarce as a result of his increase in
business, and he was having a hard
time keeping his beer kegs cold.
To remedy the problem, Safi
installed two new cooler units
He was also having problems
with his plumbing, mainly dealing
with an absence of a sink in the
men's restroom.
It seems as if one night an
overzcalous customer took it upon
himself todo someamateur remod-
eling. Although Safi appreciated the
thought, he decided it best to leave
the sink intact.
Thus it seems that Bunny's Bar
& Grill was merely shaken and
stirred a little, but nothing there is
going to get flat.

explains In most cases, an

Lisa Fulk, a deal student at
ECU maoring in fashion mer-
chandising, says she does not feel
comfortable using her voice since
she realizes she sounds different
from others.
She says she does have tune
rional vocal cords, though, and
becomes anerv when she's re-
ferred to as deaf and dumb.
Basic Sign also states that deaf
people may communicate through
oneormoreof'thefollowing ways
sign language, facial expressions,
gestures, lipreading, miming.
speech, drawings or writing.
However, all deaf people do
not lipread and sign, an assump

speaker has a mustache, beard,

sic Sign explains.
The text savs statistics show
that three out of every It) words
are understood during lipreading
Those who use sign language
probably use American Sign Lan-
guage, though it's not the only
form. ASL is not universal, and
like English or trench, it has its
own syntax, Basic Sign states.
In ASL, the use of space and
movement represents ideas by a
single sign, which would require
several spoken words of English.
Another distinctive feature of sign
language, given bv the text, in

Special Olympics come to Greenville, ECU

Last weekend marked a great

Over 1,500 athletes gathered
from 80 counties around the state u i
compete in nine different sports.
Last Thursday the Olympians
began arriving at ECU to register
for the three dav event. Sportsaction
on Thursday and Friday waa lim-
ited to preliminary games.
The action started in earnest on
Friday night when the opening
ceremonies began Saturday bore
witness to the spirit and determi-
nation oi the Special Olympians as
they competed for medals and rib-
bons. After the games on Saturday
night at Ficklen Stadium saw the
official closing of the games along
with a joyous victory dance.
To fully appreciate the experi-
ence of the NCSO Summer Games
one had to be on hand for the open-
ing ceremonies. On Friday night
the Special Olympic teams, each
distinguished by different colored
uniforms, and 700 enthusiastic
coaches gathered outside the sta-
The athletes then marched out
onto the field greeted by the stand-
ing ovation of an audience of over
7,000 people and the performance

from major supporters and spon-
sors, Billy Davis, an athlete from
Pitt County and televised spokes-
person for the games delivered the

but it I cannot win let me be brave in
the attempt.

While much has changed since

the same.
Saturday all the competitions
began which included aquatics,

people, no more live bands or fire-
works, but everv thing was in or-

they needed for the moment.

Sappenfield said that more funds
will be needed because "it grows

This year's Special Olympics
were not only the first to be held
