After reviewing the national
rules, the original Phi Sigma Pi
Purple team played the Pick-Up
team in the semi-finials.
Pick-Up team members were
Jennifer Wardrep, Donald CGeen,
Nicole Deans and Jeremey Mills.
Phi Sigma Pi members were
Brenda Smith, Jamcy Tisdale, Scott
Tippins and Karen Parrish. Phi
Sigma Pi won the semi-finials and
moved on to the finials to play
Banzai 14.
Banzai 14 consisted of four
people who signed up individually
and were put on a team by the
Student Union Committee. Steve
O'Geary, Robert Joyner ,Seott Roche
and Charles Mitchell made up the
champion team. Banzai 14 won
with the score 125 to 110.
The na me Banzai came from "a
movie where all the main charac-
ters were from different walks of
life and worked together as a team,
and 14 came from us being the 14th
team Roche said.
"I signed up because this wasa
great opportunity for me to meet
newpeople Mitchellsaid. "Thisis
not a Bowl of brainy people, it's for
everyone. Even couch potatoes
would have a blast
"We had a cross-sectional
group that blended together really
well O'Geary said. "We've all
got ten to Ivgixxl friends with this
"This is the closest game we've
ever had Mid Joyner. "This last
game put fear in my heart
Everv member of Banzai 14 will
receive $25 and have a chance to go
to ECU'S All-Star team that will
trawl to Blacksburg, Va Feb. 28-
March 1. The All-Star team will
compete against schools from Ken-
tucky, Tennessee, North Carolina,
South CanMina and Virginia.
Eight finalists will compete to
see which five will go to Blacksburg.

They do not believe that an
individual's perspective is neces-
sarily linked with his or her race
or gender.
I he statement was signed by
Dr. Steven Mandelker from the
department of philosophy; by Dr.
Michael Enright, Dr. Bodo
Nischan, Dr. Anthony Papalas, Dr.
Philip Adler, and Dr. William
Cobb of the department of his-
tory; and by Dr. McKay Sundwall
from the department of English.
The organizers are having a
tough time finding a forum on
campus. A similar discussion was
planned for the fall semester of
last year, but was similarly can-
celed.
The panel discussion was
sponsored by the Student Union
Forum Committee and was part
of a series titled 'The Attic Society
Revisited
The forum was to be the first
in a series of lectures modeled after
the old Cambridge model of an
assembly of professors and stu-
dents discussing the major topics
of the day.

Opinion
Page 4, Thursday, January 30, 1992
President politically motivated
Of 111 the contradictions produced ber when he admitted thecountry needed
bv President Bush during his State of the help? Instead, the president waited,
Union address Tuesday night, the most building up a poKtfca! trenzyotanticipa-
ironk was his assertion that the timing of
his new plan for economic reform was
not politically based.
Before speaking of the country's eco-
nomic woes, the president patted him-
self on the back for the fall or commu-
nism and his triumph in the Gulf war. 1 le
implied that now that the both wars are
over, domestic problems can be tackled.
It seems the president believes his
job to involve only one duty at a time.
First foreign policy then domestic issues.
Forget trving to create a balance of the
two.
The president stated that the rea-
sons for his new economic policies stem
only from the nation's need for recovery.
In fact, he made a demand for Congress
to pass his reform bills by March 20
because of their urgency.
This urgency does not coincide with
Bush's former statements.
Since November, the president has
admitted the country is in a recession
and has pointed toward his State of the
Union address as the answer for our
country's problems. However, after wait-
ing several months he suddenly unveils
his plans and drops the urgency into the
lap of the congress.
If Bush's motive for his economic
reforms were truly non-political, why
did he not unveil them back in Novem-
tion.
If one examines the president's plans,
thev are shown to be filled largely with
political fluff, short on real answers to
problems.
Bush presented plans which con-
tained the jargon American people
wanted to hear, but left out specifics.
He proposed tax cuts and exemp-
tions, but also promised to reduce the
national deficit. He admitted that the
nation needed health care reform, but
refused to support a national insurance
system opting instead for a relatively
small tax credit for the poor.
The unemployment benefit exten-
sions which the president opposed last
year were on his list of demands for
Congress this year.
Apparently he realized that the un-
employed vote as well.
In the end, the president's plans are
nothing more than the same old dribble
which he has proclaimed for the last
three years.
Bush's ideas resemble last-chance
grabs for the forgiveness of a country
forgotten in lieu of foreign policy. His
statements mirrorShakespeare's descrip-
tion of life:
It is a tale told by an idiot,
Full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Special to the Fast Carolinian
With the circus presently go-
ing on called the race for the nomina-
tion for the presidency, it's easy to
see whv the world watches us with
such bemusoment
Election vears are always good
for a few sparks, but this year our
journalistic community seems to have
sunk to a new low After an article
appeared in the Star concerning
Democratic candidate Arkansasgov-
ernor BUI Clinton's extra-marital sex
life, the New York Pott jumped all
over the story, and then the flood
gates broke loose Now it is a topic of
evcrv news show and newspaper,
and onceagain somethingof thiscali-
ber is taking precedence over a dis-
cussion of the serious issues of the
day
Let's get serious theStor. That
article probably appeared next to the
article on Elvis' mutant alien baby.
With first the Clarence Thomas hear-
ings and then the Kennedy rape trial,
we are turning into a nation of sexual
voyeurs cultivated and exploited by
every branch of our media.
Fven if the allegations are true,
if we suddenly have a Puritan rule
that sex disqualifies a candidate, the
only person we could elect would be
Michael Jackson.
It would be another thing en-
tirely if he denied the allegations cat-
egorically (which he has) and it turns
out he lied; then it would be a dark
smudge on his credibility and his
honesty. If it is true, he will probably
turn out to be the next Gary Hart. It's
as though the presidency were like
the sun and all the candidates like
little moths who just get fried when
they fly too close.
I have no special love for Bill
Clinton, in fact I consider all the
Democraticcandidates to be no-name
lightweights, of whom which I would
bet that the majority of the people
couldn't name two. It's a sad state of
affairs when the only candidate with
national campaign experience is Jerry
Brown, former governor of California
who left the scene for a few years to
study Zen. To me that counts as a
plus, but he is not taken seriously by
the general electorate. All in all, 1 still
don't thinkanyof the Democrats have
the stature it takes to be elected presi-
dent, but I probably would have said
that about Carter at this point in 1976.
On the other side of the coin.
we have a Republican administra-
tion that seems all but totally incom-
petent. Bush is like a political foot-
ball; a flag blowing in the wind of
public opinion polls. And what was
that deal about bringing a bunch of
overpaid car salesman to Japan and
leaving his trade advisor home? All
that bit of political genius did was
start a verbal feud between Japan and
us and create a climate where we are
now hearing the drums beat thechant
for an all out trade war. All that
could possibly do is raise consumer
prices and end up putting even more
people out of work.
Bush has reneged on nearly ev-
ery promise he made in the last elec-
tion, and his great claim to fame was
that bogus war he brought us in with
Iraq, where he first started (as
Keagan's vice president) by arming
Iraq with our technology and hard-
ware (along with Russia and our
Western European buddies), and
then he sent the wrong message to
Saddam through our Ambassador
April C.lasby just days before he in-
vaded when she told him our policy
was not to get involved in "border
disputes Brilliant.
That seems to be the story of
Bush's presidency; he's left to clear,
up the mess that he and Reagan cre-
ated, from the deregulation of the S
& L's to creating in the last 10 years a
record economic class gap.
The only reason Dukakis
couldn't beat him in 1988 is because
he was a bigger lightweight than
Mondalebackin 1984
I think that the Democrats need
to get their act together.
If someone with nameand face
recognition were to enter the race
today, like George Mitchell or Sam
Nunn, they v.ould not only blow
away their Democratic opponents,
they would make Bush look bad in
November.
Even Gephardt or Gore could
do it, at least they have had national
campaign experience.
One thing is for sure, no matter
who gets elected, tney'll be stuck
cleaning up the mess left to them
from the last 10 years by the presi-
dent, j
The government has been hav-
ing a tot of tun lately with a little toy it
calls "civil forfeiture
Here's how civil forfeiture
works. Basically, the government takes
jwav vourcushorpmperty and makes
you pav them to get it back If instead
vou decide to sue Mr it, the burden of
proot is on you, and you have to pay
anv and all incidental expenses.
Of course, since they have your
moneyand or vour property, you mav
well have nothing to hire a lawyer
with. Even if vou Jo hin'a lawver, that
lawyer will want a cut of whatever you
get back.
If vou get anvthing back, that is
vou haveto prove you bought the prop-
erty with money vou made legally. (Or
if the police seised cash, vou have to
prove you made that money legally.)
Try proving something like that to a
skeptical friend. let alone a judge who's
never seen you before
If vou loso, or can't attord to sue,
the property that was seized from you
is retained by the law enforcement
agency that took it. It they seized (read
"stole) vour house, they can sell it and
keep the proceed If they seized vour
car, thev can drive around in it It they
seized your cash, they can buy what-
ever thev damn well please with it.
What s really amazing is that
there's not necessarily a trial involved
� unless vou sue them to get vour stuff
back. The law enforcement agencies
can take vour property without charg-
ing vou with any crime, much less
convicting vou In fact, thev prefer not
to charge vou, because that way you
aren't entitled to a court-appointed at-
tomev. Thev hope you'll roll over and
take it Most people do
Civil forfeiture amounts to pun-
ishment without trial, for a crime that
need not even be specified
As such, forfeiture obviously
violates the Fifth Amendment. "No
person shall be deprivvd of life,
liberty, or property, without due pro-
cess of law; nor shill private property
be taken for public use without just
compensation The practice also vio-
lates the Fourth: Therightof the people
to be secure in their persons, papers,
houses, and effects, against unreason-
able searches and seizures, shall not be
violated
It arguably violates the Sixth
Amendment's right-to-counsel provi-
sion, since forfeiture often makes it
impossible for the victim to hire a law-
yer. It also arguably violates the Ninth
and Tenth Amendments. That's a total
of five amendments violated by one
policy, which is probably a record.
Not onlv is civil forfeiture a vio-
lation of the Constitution, it's also an
open invitation for the police to abuse
their power. Since thev git to keep the
pnKeods, what could be more natural
in these days ot budget cuts than to
soie whatever you possibly can1 All
tor the greater good ot law enforce-
ment, ot course.
Bv now, vou ought to be won-
dering how this can be. How can such
a blatantly unconstitutional policy, so
inimical to some of our most basic
freedoms, be allowed to continue?
How, indeed, could it ever have come
about in the first place7 The explana-
tion takes three short words:
War. On. Drugs.
That's nght. See, civil forfeiture
was ongmallv implemented (well, re-
vived, it vou want to get technical) as a
Mi in the war on drugs. The idea was
that pottoi organizations would use
forfeiture laws to seize the assets of
drug dealers, hampering the dealers'
attempts to defend themselves against
subsequent criminal charges
Rut it hasn't worked out that
wav. Not at all. A series of articles in
the Pitt-iburgh Press, a conservative Pitts-
burgh newspaper, documented the
actual nationwide use of civil forfei-
ture, and the results are staggering.
To pull one revealing quote from
the first article in the Tress's series.

erty t the federal government MR

In another case, a 46-year-old
woman is forced to forfeit almost
$40,000 � half of it her lite savings, the
other half from an insurance settle-
ment � because a "drug dog"
scratched at her luggage. No d rugs are
found, theclaim that thedog scratched

Letters to the Editor
SGA President
lauds Pirates
To the students of East Carolina
University:
I would like to congratulate the
football team on a great season. Each
game played this year brought me
excitement and anticipation for the
next. By Peach Bowl time needless to
say, I was overwhelmed. The sense of
team and college spirit these wins
brought is only measurable on the
faces of all the fans.
While in AtUnta, I felt pride to
be a student at ECU I have frequently
felt while attending these last four
years. I believe this spirit should spill
over into our spring semester to carry
our senior to graduation and our un-
derclassmen into a new ECU tradition
that we are the best, and only get
better in each task we complete.
I also thank the students, fac-
ulty, and fans. I'm sure the team will
agree that our support meant every-
thing to them throughout the season;
and also, for ignoring the rude com-
ments made by The Technician, the
NCSU school paper.
The article made them to be
what they w;te accusing us of, imma-
ture.
Unlike their paper would have
lead one to read, we only went to
Atlanta todo one thing; prove that we
dominate the state in football, and we
did.

Since the release of their widely acclaimed four-song cassette, The Heisman, Johnny Quest has toured the
East Coast, packing clubs from Georgia to New York. They will perform in Greenville Saturday night.
Johnny Quest finds answer
By Jim Shamlin
Staff Writer
"Funk rock" is the name of a
recent trend in alternative music.
Also referred to as "funk 'n' roll
this strange blend of heavy metal,
rap and grooves has stormed onto
the alternative scene. Even in the
backwoods town of Greenville, the
Red Hot Chili Peppers can be heard
over the college airwaves daily and
bands like the Sex Police pack
downtown clubs whenever they
come to play.
Unfortunately, popularity
fades quickly. What was once the
latest rage becomes stale when band
after band begins to churn out the
same sound and no-talent garage
combos corrupt an already-lame
style with their ineptitude. It would
seem that nothing exciting could
happen in the mire of an overplayed
style, but there are a thousand
shadesof grey between "seem" and
"is and somewhere in the twilight
stands Johnny Quest.
Since the release of their widely
acclaimed four-song cassette, The
Heisman, Johnny Quest has toured
the East Coast, packing clubs from
Georgia to New York. Barring
nuclear war, natural disaster or an
untimely case of laryngitis, JQ will
bringitsbrand of F'n'R toGreenville
this Saturday night.
What, exactly, is this band's
claim to originality? Vocalist Joe
"Johnny" Farmer explains: "Some
bands have horns, more of a soul
side to it. We have more of the metal
side Havingcvolved fromanearly
'80s hardcore band, Johnny Quest
playsa metal plated speciesof funk
rock. They maintain a heavy 4-4
rhythm but blend in guitar licks
that would seem more suited to
punk or speed metal.
Furthermore, it's clear that JQ
is no garage combo. Eight years of
playing together has given them I
sense of unity, turning them from
just four musicians into a bond in
every senseof the word. While their
music is fast-paced and complex,
there is no sign of conflict � each
musician plays his part well � not
to eclipse the others, but to match
them.
The driving force behind any
funk-rock band is its bassist. Jack
Campbell lays down a solid foun-
dation and demonstrateshisability
to play a variety of styles, from
power toslaptoshadow,withclean,
sharp control. The other half of the
rhvthm section, drummer Steve
Hill, matches Campbell's intensity,
hammering the skins at
hypcrspeed, yet with astounding
precision.
On the front of the stage, gui-
tarist Bill Ladd grafts riffs from
heaw metal and rock 'n roll onto
J
the jazzfunk rhythms. Although
he makes his instrument scream
and grind,every note fallsinto place.
Above it all, Joe Farmer belts out
rap-style lyrics. The low, abrasive
qualitv of his voice seems to suit
both funk and rock and effectively
closes the gap between them.
One advantage that JQ haso ver
the other bands is that their songs
aren't merely mindless noise.
"If you've got a mike and a
megawatt system Farmer ex-
plains, "You should probably feel
some responsibility to say some-
thing
There' sa message in every tune,
from the evils of racism to the ad-
vantages oi personal hygiene to
safe sex,but it's never overbearingly
preachy. The lyrics reconcile the
humorous elements of rap with the
social conscience of hardcore, find-
ing a tolerable balance in between,
10 provide a tongue-in-cheek im-
perative that the listener may take
or leave.
Anyone who's seen the Cure
live knows that a group that plays
good music can still have all the
live-show excitement of a dead
halibut, inciting the crown to noth-
ing.
Thisis not thecascfrom lohnny
Quest. In past concerts, they have
had audiences moshing, slamming
and stage-diving to the point that
the band had to stop the show to let
things cool off.

Question marks surrounded
Barbra Streisand's second directo-
rial effort in 'The Prince of Tides
based on Pat Conroy's much-loved
multi-million sellingnovel. Wasshe
experienced enough to handle the
complex emotional story? Could
Nick Nolte pull off a role where he
didn't have to shoot a gun? Are her
fingernails really as long as every-
body says? Well � yes to all the
above.
Streisand manages to capture
her audience from the very start
through the beauty of the South
Carolina low country and a well-
performing cast.
It'squiteobviousthatStreisand
has put a lot of time and effort into
this film, and her direction holdsup
well in comparison to any estab-
lished filmmaker.

By Dana Danielson
Assistant Entertainment Editor
Underwear draped around the

Mambosoks, the latest hat craze
in the surf, ski and skate fields,
originated in 1989 in Australia by

Dan Hoard and Tom Bunnell
came up with the idea while trying
to protect themselves from the sun.
Hoard turned his cut-off shorts up-

The plot revolves around ex-
football coach Tom Wingo (Nick
Nolte), who undertakes a sister-
saving mission to New York. This is
following her latest in a string of
attempted suicides. There, he must
spill his guts to her psychiatrist,
Lowenstein (Barbra Streisand), in
order to get to the bottom of his
sister's problems. Only after he has
revealed to Lowenstein the secrets
of their harrowing childhood, can
his sister � and himself � go on
with their lives.
Flashbacks featuring Nolte's
abusive father and social-climbing
mother are skillfully woven into the
plot. Kate Nelligan plays an im-
pressive part as the mother, espe-
cially her scenes with theadultTom.
Nolte, however, is the reason to
see the picture. He is perfect for the
part of the gruff, bitter Southern
gentleman-gone-bad. He ranges
from funny to tragic, tough to ten-
der. Following his great perfor-
mance in "Cape Fear Nolte deliv-
ers the kind of one-two punch that
Oscar should love when March rolls
around.
The film's bwgest flub is the
emphasis placed on the
LowensteinTom relationship,
rather than his childhood.
Fansof thebook will miss scenes
involving the children's grandpar-
entsand the kids' rescue of the local
dolphin, Canlina Snow.
Abo, their father1 s pet tiger�a
major part of the book � is seen
only in an old home movie. But, for
the most part, Nolte's role compen-
sates.
"The Prince of Tides" is a tri-
umph for director Barbra Streisand
and should make Nolte a promi-
nent leading man in the future.
The film should prove satisfy-
ing to fansof thebookand the movie-
going public as well.

"ECU swim practices arc
harder than anything I've ever
experienced said Cook. His
practices at Palm Beach Garden
High School consisted of swim-
ming about 7,000 yards daily. At
ECU, practices are up to 14,000
vards a day.
Cook was never a lifeguard
ir went to a pool for fun like most
ol us I lis thought of a pool has
become a place to train, not a
place to have tun.
A pool is a place tor compe-
titions instead of a place of relax-
ation, said Cook. I le hopes that
in the future that view will
change
A- lor school, Cook is a ti-
nance major with a 3.97 grade
poinaverage. 1 le will graduate in
Mayol 1992. Last semester Cook
made his first "B" ever in college,
and that was even a borderline
A grade.
' I he staff at ECU are prepar-
ing me very well said Cook. "1
am pleased with the education
I've gotten so tar
Cook wants to graduate from
IC I then work for two years as a
banker or broker Alter he has
established some credentials m
tl . business world, he would go
back to school to get his MBA
I le s interested in some larger
universities like UNC Chapel
Hill, but ECU is not out of the
question 1 ollowingthe MBA.his
plans are based on the economy.
It the economy holds up, 1
would like to go into business for
myself preferably in trusts. 1
would basically managing other
people's money
Cook's ultimate goal is to
move back to southern Florida
and go into business tor himself.
He looks up to his family, espe-
cially his father, uncle and grand-
father.
"All three are excellent busi-
nessmen said Cook.
Cook is trying to locate a job
in the regional area, so he can
continue playing with his band.
1 le plays in the area with a
group called "Manifest Destiny
Band members include Tom
Vins, , Wes Thornton and Nick
Weife. The philosophy ol the
band is, "to be everything they
ever wanted to see in a college
band said Cook.
Along .vith playing some
original tunes of their own, they
play ACPC, ZZ lop, Metallica,
l.edepplmandPnvm' n-Crvm'
to name a tew. Manifest Destiny
has played at the New Deli,
O'Rocketella's. the Fizz, and the
Attic. They've also played in At-
lantic Beach and Emerald Isle.
Manifest Destiny has been to-
gether torabouta yearand a halt.
It is now known th.it they have a
following.
The band is v urrently work-
ing on .in album but have no idea
when it will be finished.
"Getting an album together
takes a lot of time and money
said Cook. The band practices
twotimesa week in a rented ware-
house m Goldsboro.
Cook, on his thirteenth birth
day, received a guitar from his
mother, and hasbeenplayingever
since. After a year of guitar lessons,
he then became impatient and
started teaching himself by lis-
tening to records.
Cook's favorite guitar player
is Randy Rhoads, the former gui-
tarist for OzzyOsborne. In 1983,
Rhoadsdied ina planecrash. Thai
was a sad day for Cook. I le had
tickets to go see Ozzy Osborne
and Rhoads in concert, but the
concert was canceled due to the
crash. Black Sabbath is another
favorite group of Cook's.
At first, Manifest IXstmy be-
gan with four swimmers getting
together to play for tun. They
were never really that serious,
but found out they had more tal-
ent than they thought. Two ol
those plavers are gone, soCook.a
former swimmer, and two others
now make up Manifest Destiny.
"Marc'sa great guitar player,
and he'sgreatonstage said EC I
swimmer )ohn Donova.
On Valentine's Day, Feb. 14,
Manifest Destiny will play at the
New Deli. Cook also bartends at
the New Deli. The band will per-
form at the Attic in March.
Marc Cook started swimming
seriously to relieve stress from
school, then started playing gui-
tar to release stress from su mi-
ming.
"How Markdoesitall, Idon'l
know said Duke Blovd. E I
