Grads give cool gift
The graduating class of Hood Col-
lege in Maryland presented the univer-
sity president with 278 ice cubes with
dimes frozen inside during their recent
commencement ceremony. The gag gift
represented the graduates'approval of a
tuition freeze for the 1992-93 academic
school year and carried on the graduates'
7-year trad ition of leaving a gag gift to the
school.
Bombing cancels graduation
Graduation was canceled at the Sa-
vannah College of Art because of a bomb-
ing where theceremonies were to be held.
The graduation bombing was the second
to have taken place in a month at the
school, which has been plagued by vio-
lence in recent months.
Psychic service offered
Several students at Dartmouth Col-
lege think they can help other students
solve problems ranging from roommate
problems to sexual harassment bv open-
ing a new mediation service. The
Dartmouth Community Mediation Cen-
ter opened in May and has 21 trained
student arbitrators to run the center.
Students run for president
The presidential search committee at
Miami University of Ohio recently re-
ceived a surprise application from two
students hoping to become avpresidents
of the school. Ed Sweeney and Brian
Richardson said they feel they are well-
qualified for the job. "We've always
thought the world, and Miami University
in particular, would be a lot better place if
Brian and 1 were running it Sweeney
said.

Governor proposes tuition hike
By Tony Rogers
Staff Writr
Students and administrators
at ECU may be hit with an extra
financial hardship if Governor
Jim Martin's proposed budget
passes through the state legisla-
ture unmodified.
Governor Martin has pro-
posed a 10 percent tuition in-
crease at all state universities to
begin in the fall of 1992. Along
with this added burden to stu-
dents is a proposed $1.8 million
in cuts from ECU's budget for
the 1992-93 school year. These
cu ts a re the most of any school in
the state.
"This was a very difficult
budgetary year said Joanne
Latham, deputy director of com-
munications for Governor Mar-
tin. "The Governor had to find
different ways to increase rev-
Technology
creates video
experience
By Tracy Ford
SUff Writer
Technology is entering the classroom. With
the use of FAX machines, interactive video and
high-speed data transmission, classes may be
taughtat many North Carolina universities with-
out a teacher physically present
A classroom with microphones, video cam-
eras and televisions ls needed to participate in the
video network, which is set up across the state.
MCNC, the communications center for the net-
work, operates CONCERT, a state wide program
interconnecting 10 universities in North Caro-
lina. The network offers "videoproximity" which
gives access to all the connected universities.
Classes can be taught through the network at
ECU's vkJeocoiTferencingcenter in Joyner library
or in the Brody building at the Medical school.
Thomas McQuaid, producer for the video
conferencing center at ECU, said the video
a mferencing center is used two to three times per
week during the summer and almost every day
during the regular school year.
The center is used for conferences and semi-
nars as well as the teJeclasses.
"Say Carolina is offering a class that we're
not, students can sign up here and come here to
take the class and look at the teacher in the
monitor McQuaid said.
With the use of the microphones and video
cameras, one class can be taught in "real time" in
several different locations by one teacher.
The ability to tape and review classes, for
exams or because of absence, is a definite advan-
tage to students.
Instruct rs may have to adjust their teaching
style to accommodate the teJeclasses. Non-verbal
commurucation is only effective when the cam-
era efrxijsed on tlie instructor, and stAidenlsrnay

and need more individual attention by the in-
structor.
enue for the state. In some cases,
he was forced to do things he
wou Id rather not havedone. One
of these things was to increase
universities' tuitions
According to state Senator
Ed Warren, the money brought
in from these tuition increases
will remain in the respective
schools to be used as the admin-
istrations see fit.
Both Latham and Warren
said that the state will see no
increase in revenue from tuition
increases.
Warren, chairman of the
Ed uca tion Overs ight Committee,
sees the rnc rease in tuition as " un-
fair and inappropriate at this
time
"Our committee is dead
against it Warren said. "In fact,
most of my associates in the Sen-
ate don't agree with it
Wa rren sa id his concerns also
lie with a possible 20 percent tu-
ition increase at community col-
leges across the state. If passed,
the 1992-93 school year would
mark the fourth
consecutive year
of tuition in-
creases at com-
munity colleges

in the state.
Warren said �������
ECU will be one of the universi-
ties most affected by a tuition in-
crease at the community college
level.
"ECU's development is in-
fluenced heavily by Pitt Commu-
nity College Warrei said. "PCC
is the second largest community
college in the state. It has become
a stepping stone to ECU
Warren said a ruitkm increase
would hurt an improving image
at ECU.
"We have the
largest school of
education in the
state he said.
"People look at us
as leaders in edu-
cation in North
Carolina
Warren also
said thai- an in-
crease in school
fees would hurt
the image of the state's entire uni-
versity system.
"North Carolina ranks sec-
ond to just Texas in tuition cost
Warren said. "We take pnde in

According to Latham, a tu-
ition increase will not hurt North
Carolina's reputation as having
one ' ihe lowest tuition rates in
thenanon.
"Our tuition will remain one
of the lowest in the country she
said. "And all the money wiJI go
back into the university systems
Latham did not know if the
tuition increases were included
to make up for the budget cuts at
each university.
The $1.8 million cut from
ECU's budget is the highest in the
state. UNC is second with $1.4
million in cuts, while NCSU is
third with $950,1)00 in cut-backs.
Warren said he sees no rea-
son for the state to cut ECU's
budget more than anyone else's.
"We just want our fair share
of the state's monev said War-
ren. "Just because we don't have
as many students as L'NC or
NCSU does not mean that our
needs aren't just as great
X hats mark the spot; fad or philosophy?
Malcolm X now in fashion and in philosophy
By Robert S. Todd
AaaisUnt Sport Editor
The X hats, started by director Spike Lee for promo-
tion of his up-coming movie about the life of Malcolm X,
are starting to freckle malls and college campuses across
the country.
The enormity of a man bom Malcolm Little is aston-
ishing, especially considering most of the people wear-
ing the hats and T-shirts emblazoned with his name and
likeness were bom long after the assassination of El-Hajj
Malik El-Shabazz.
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz is a hot item. So hot, his
widow has been forced to take legal action against com-
panies making money off the now famous X. You cannot
have a legal right to a letter in the alphabet, but it is more
than coincidence El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz's last name
was once X.
X is, perhaps, the newest fad.
"My opinion, however, is that all the people wearing
the Malcolm X caps are not wearing them for fashion
purposes, but they are concerned about making a state-
ment said David Dennard, associate history professor
at ECU. "I think they share some of the same views of
Malcolm X
What those views are is ambiguous. "There are at
least three distinct Malcolms Dennard said.
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was bom Malcolm Little in
Omaha, Neb. In his early years, Malcolm was involved
with drugs and crime. Eventually, he was sent to prison
where he began to educate himself. After being released
from prison, he joined the Nation of Islam under Elijah
Muhammad and replaced his slave surname with X.
Elijah Muhammad's followers in the Nation of Islam
took the X in place of the African name they could never
know. After a falling out and a separation from the
Nation of Islam, Malcolm became an orthodox Muslim,
distinetly different from the Nationof Islam,and took the
name El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz.
"The Nation of Islam was an organization or reli-
gious cult founded in this country Dennard said. "They
adhere to some of the same teachings, they follow the
Koran, but this Nation of Islam placed emphasis on race
that orthodox Muslims did not. So this was like a black
supremacist (organization) to some extent
Fad or ambiguous political statement?
"It's a big fad, if you ask me said an ECU sopho-
more wearing a Malcolm X T-shirt.
She said she just wore the shirt beca use she needed
something white to match her outfit.
"There are people who have a whole Malcolm X
wardrobe and don't know shit about what it means
she said. "I don't know much about Malcolm X, and I
don't try to
A member of an African-American fra temi ty, who
wished to remain anonymous, said he does not wear
the hats because hedoes not know much about Malcolm
X, "I think it would be wrong to wear it and know
nothing about him he said.
Dennard said he does not agree with him. "I tiiink
that's going to happen with anything Dennard said.
"There are folks who carry around bibles and don't
understand them, some people carry around other
things. I think that's the first step to begin to under-
stand.
"Because the same thing I see in some cases in the
South with the Confederate flagon the vehicles, and all
of that, people don't really understand the South and
basically what the Confederate flag is all about
The politics of Malcolm X are anything but clear,
yet carry a gravity that should not be overlooked. The
press had been accused of creating a false image of the
man behind the podium. United Press International,
theday after the assassination, descri bed El-Hajj Malik
El-Shabazz as a "bearded Negro advocate of violence
against whites
In a January 1965 interview with Playboy, Martin
Luther King Jr. talked about the politics of Malcolm X,
who had already made his pilgrivige, or hajj, to
Mecca.
"I totally disagree with many of his political and
philosophical views - at least insofar as I understand
where he now stands King said. "I know that I have
often wished he would talk less of violence because
violence is not going to solve our problem. And in his
litany of articulating the despair of the Negro without
offering any positive, creative alternative, I feel that
Malcolm has done himself and our people a great
disservice. Fiery, demagogic oratory in the black ghet-
tos, urging Negroes to arm themselves and prepare to
Popularity result of need
for black leadership
(CPS) � Some University of Minnesota students
arid faculty experts suggest that new interest in slain
black leader Malcolm X and clothing�hats, buttons
or T-shirts with the letter "X" or slogans � is con-
nected with feelings of disenchantment with current
black leadership.
'There is not anyone in a leadership role at this
time, so there are people trying to find their own
identitv, trying to detenrane which direction they are
headed Elka Steven, a graduate student studying
the social and cultural aspects of clothing, told The
Minnesota Dairy.
Some blacks say their leaders have sold out.
"Malcolm had a record of uncompromising lead-
ership and very principled behavior said August
Nimtz, a political science professor. "And that's ex-
actly what people are looking for
James Scroggins, a sociology student, told the
Daily that the civil rights movement has not fulfilled
its promise to blacks.
"The civil rights movement has let a few blacks
get through the cracks, but the majonty of them are
still living in downtrodden, ghetto-type environ-
ments he said. "Racism has permeated back into
this society. We are living in a more separate, unequal
and hostile society

Orientation visits, time to
rub elbows again
Freshman orientation kicked off
Sunday with more than 550 students
attending.
There will be six orientation ses-
sions this summer.
"It is estimated that over 3,000
freshman and 1,000 transfer students
will attend the sessions said Eliza-
beth Freeman, who works in the orien-
tation office. Placement tests, movies,
concerts, games, a pig pickin registra-
tion and information sessions are all
part of this year's orientation.
Parents can even participate in a
parent orientation that includes tours,
lectures from the chancellor and the
dean of students, and lectures about
the financial and health issues of col-
lege students.
In the Mendenhall Great Room,
student organizations put together
booths to show students what their
organizations are all about
"This is a great opportunity for
the new students to get a look at the
university through the eyes of the
students, which, in the long run, will
be more beneficial to the campus or-
ganizations said ECU student and
recreational services representative
Jamie Goins.

By Scott

According to the conventional
wisdom, the Democratic and Re-
publican bigwigs don't understand
the nature of the threat posed by H.
Ross Perot. Nor do they understand
why he's so popular with the vot-
ers. And it's all because they're out
of touch with the American people.
For once, the conventional
wisdom is almost right. It's true that
the party leaders don't understand
Perot and his appeal, and it's true
that their inability to understand
Perot's 2ppeal stems from a lack of
understanding of the American
people.
But what is it about the Ameri-
can people that the party leaders
have failed to understand? Their
desire for a government that actu-
ally functions? Their frustration with
political infighting that comes at the
expense of the general welfare? No,
give them credit: the old guard un-
derstands all that just fine, though
they haven't done much about it
Perot's appeal runs deeper
than tiiat. Voters are attracted to
Perot because he is a mythic figure.
Not that he's a god or anything. But
Perot unit. two of the most power-
ful and enuuring American myths:
�:�� Hcratio Alger myth and the Re-
luctant Sheriff myth.
Hor.itto Alger was a nine-
teenth-century American novelist
who wrote practically the same
novel about a zillion times. Such
enthralling works as Rufus and Rose:
or, The fortunes of rough and ready and
Slow and sure, or, From the street to the
shop typically traced a pitiable waifs
arduous path from rags to riches. If
"you work hard, save your money,
respect authority, and keep quiet,
eventually some Dickensian coinci-
dence will dump a fortune in your
lap � or anyway, that's the myth.
Perot seems like a Horatio
Alger story come to life. He isn't,
quite; among other things, his fam-
ily was rather less poor than he has
claimed. But facts rarely interfere
with myths, and such is true in
Perot's case: in America's mind, he
embodies the American Dream.
In any event, he does fit the
myth pretty closely. Perot had
humble enough beginnings; he's the
son of a cowboy-turned -cotton bro-
ker, himself a self-made man. And
it's well known that Perot parlayed
a $1,000 loan from his wife into a
53.3 billion fortune. Whatever he
may have lacked in rags, he has
made up for in riches.
Having made his fortune,
Perot now stands ready to embody
another deep-rooted American
myth. As George Will pointed out
in the Jun. 1 issue of Newsweek, Perot
is being looked to as The Outsider
Who Will Come Into tr.c Corrupt
Town and CleanThingsUp. "Maybe
that is Perof s role Will writes, "the
Reluctant Sheriff who would rather
ride into the sunset but first has to
make the town safe for womenfolk
and young'uns
Perot plans to clean things up
by "eliminating gridlock" (one of
his favorite phrases), not by shoot-
ing the bad guys. And if that ap-
proach makes him more of a peace-
maker than a fighter, well, so what?
It doesn't matter to the myth. The
Reluctant Sheriff myth demands a
sheriff who takes charge and whips
everybody else into line. That's just
what Perot's supporters believe hell
do.
The Horatio Alger myth and
the Reluctant Sheriff myth are part
of our national consciousness; they
are at the heart of many of the sto-
ries we tell ourselves about our-
I
selves. Horatio Alger stories
abound, and not just in Horatio
Alger's books; similarly, Reluctant
Sheriff stories are played out in
Westerns from The Virginian to High
Noon and all points in between.
When such stories appear to
cross over into the real world, they
have an enormous psychological im-
pact. I don't mean to suggest that all
of Ross Perot's appeal is due to
American popular mythology;
much of it has to do with plain old
politics. But his identification with
the myths is one hell of a powerful
asset.
The problem with the Demo-
cratic and Republican party leaders
is not that they don't understand
the American people. The problem
is that they don't understand people,
period. They don't understand the
power of myth in the popular mind.
Say Anything
Blind from the facts of who you are
By Robert S. Todd
Editorial Columnist
The television cast shadows
on both of us. Our silhouettes have
stuck in my mind for a long time
and only later did I realize what
people would have said if they
knew. Most people are disgusted
with this kind of relationship. "It's
just not right it's not natural �
if God wanted it that way he would
have . people like to say.
It didn't seem awkward to
me. I had been in that position
many times before. The feeling was
very natural. Two consenting
adults. It didn't hurt anybody and
made, at least, two people very
happy.
What I do behind my door is
my business.
People are human before
they are gay, lesbian, black, white,
plaid, checkered or green. To say
things are "unnatural" is depriv-
ing people of their humanity.
Before people start becom-
ing homophobic, I am not gay. She
is a beautiful woman - who hap-
pens to be African-American
(whatever that means). 1 am Irish-
Hungarian-French-Czechoslova-
kian-American.
Pigment does not determine
social values, athleticism or the
size of your Johnson�. Not many
people actually know the reason
behind skin color. God did not
"color" us.
People with pale, milky col-
ored skin and the black skins of
central Africa are unique adapta-
tions to the environment. Most
people on Earth are neither.
The dominance of the earth
with people who are a light brown
with a yellow or olive tint (the
people of Asia, the Middle East
and northern Africa) make the
black and white problems of this
country almost trivial. Such a fuss
over so few? America and South
Africa are the last bastions of
white-black racism.
A substance called melanin
gives skin its color. Its most im-
portant function is to ensure the
upper levels of the skin will be
protected from ultraviolet light,
which can cause sunburn, rashes,
infection, skin cancer and malig-
nant melanoma (a dark tumor that
is deadly). If everyone was cov-
ered with thick hair, there would
be no need for skin color.
The more melanin, the darker
the skin and the lower the risk of
damage from the sun.
The sun is not all bad, though.
Sunlight is integral in the conver-
sion of a fatty substance in the skin
into vitamin D. The darker the skin
the longer it takes.
Vitamin D is a necessity and
is found in very few foods. The
intestines would not be effective
in absorbing calcium without it.
Misshaped birthcanals, which can
be fatal for mother and child,
osteomalacia and rickets can re-
sult without the necessary calcium
for the strengthening of bones.
The oils and livers of marine
fish are primary sources of vita-
min D. Skin must be dark enough
to protect the person who does not
have access to the ocean from harm
so he or she can endure the ultra-
violet radiation of the sun long
enough to produce vitamin D.
Skin color is a trade-off.
People with access to the ocean, in
cold climates do not need to be
dark skinned. The cold weather
does not permit the exposure of
their skin and they have vitamin D
readily available.
Blacks and whites may have
shared a common ancestor as early
as 10,000 years ago. We are all
brothers and sisters.
Believe it or not, all African-
Americans can't dunk and dance.

Tar and Away7 drivels
profusely on audience
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
In Anrtw Hall, a movie patron stands
in line pontificating about director
Federico Fellini. He claims that the
Fellim's latest film "lacked a cohesive
structure" and that he finds him "incred-
ibly indulgent"
Such is the case with Ron Howard as
exemplified by his latest film. Far and
Away.
Howard's indulgences have rarely
been more evident than in Far and Away,
the story of a ptxir Irish man and an
aristocratic Irish woman struggling to
fulfill their dream of owning land.
Subtle will never be used
to describe a Ron Howard
film. Perhaps Howard spent
too much time in Mayberry
as a youth.
Far and Azitiy tells the woeful but
inspinng (at least in Howard's rrund taJe
of Joseph rXinelly(TomCruise)and Shan-
non Christie (Nicole Kidman). Donellv
watches his father's house burn to the
ground and vows vengeance on the
wealthy landlord who owned the earth
the Dorvelly's worked. While trying to
shoot Mr. Christie (Robert Prosky),
Donelly's gun explodes in his face This
injury, combined with the pitchfork
wound in his leg which he suffered by
surprising Shannon, forces him to re-
main in the Christie's home temporarily.
Shannon want to escape to America
where she can own land and breed horses.
These dreams assist her decision to help
Joseph escape from Ireland. Eventually
the two arrive in Boston where more
struggles await them.
Donelly and Christie work plucking
chickens tor a time but Donelly finds
much more money in the world of bare
knuckle boxing. As soon as his rise be-
gins, his fall becomes evident due to the
telegraphed punches of the movie.
Because of losing a bigflght, Donelly
is forced to leave Boston. He heads West
where heagain meets Christie. Thev both
participate in the Oklahoma land rush of
1893.
Howard's directorial career began
auspiciously with a charming comedy
called Night Shift. Howard was also at the
helm for Splash and COCOOH, both moder-
ately successful and entertaining pictures.
Then the slide began.
IVSItW proved mexjerately entertain-
ing but unfulfilling as a motion picture.
Two films followed that lacked common
and artistic sense: Parenthood and
Baikiiraft. Both films proved that Howard
lives in his own private Utopia where a
setback only serves tnaccentua tea happy
ending a world where a rainbow waits
behind every cloud.
Reality became unglued in these
films. Howard wanted these films to be
soovertlv powerful that he became con-
fused by his our. go. d intentions. In-
stead of a W( irk i t art, the films plaved as
commercials tor parents and firemen,
respectively.
FarandAuw provides thesamecom-
mercialism for Irish immigrants. This
film tries so forcefully to elevate these
cha rac ters tha t the ped es ta I bee c mes v is-
ible. Instead oftooteng up to these char-
acters, we laugh at them b�ause their
inflated importance is evident
Howard's entire mentality is cin-
ematic. Every scene must havea rousing
finish, every character must be sharply
drawn to the point of caricature, the
story must be told in bold strokes. Subtle
will never be used to describe a Ron
Howard film. Terhaps Howard spent
txx much time in Mayberry as a youth.
Never once does an interesting nu-
ance appear in the characters in Far and
Away. The characters, as well as the ac-
tors portraying them, remain stiff
throughout the entire length of this film.
And what a length Far and Away is.
Ihe film runs almost two and a half
hours Howard ems to get more long-
winded as heages. So much i f this movie
shouki have been left on the cutting
room floor. Ihe story ot Shannon's par-
ents is interesting but it detracts from the
main stop of loseph and Shannon. The
Inshman who wants to marrv Shannon
("Thomas Gibson) is a boorish caricature
whose villainy does not advance the
plot. He has no place in the film. These
changes would have shortened the film
but they would not have improved it.
Inherent flaws cannot be edited
away. Cruise, for instance, has acted
only once in his career � in Born en the
Fourth of fuiy. In every other film he
simplv exuded cckincs tor thecamera.
In Fararul Away his cockiness does little
for him. loseph Donellv is tin because
Cruise is flat
(Tom) Cruise, for instance,
has acted only once in his
career� in Born on tlie Fourth
of July. In every other film,
he simply exuded cockiness
for the camera.
The simple-minded script provides
very little character development and
littleonginalirv. Most scenes remind cne
of better scenes from better films.
A film must remain true to its self-
imposed boundaries of reality. Far and
Auiy wants to be a realistic film vet
sptxn feeds the audience this melodra-
matic dnvel.

One gixxi thing can be said about L.A.

Far and Away tells the woeful but
inspinngut least in Howard's rri!nd)tale
of Joseph Doneih(TornCruise)and Shan-

watches his father's house burn to the
ground and vows vengeance on the
wealthy landlord vho owned the earth

shoot Mr. Christie (Robert Prosky),
Donelly's gun explodes in his face This
injury, combined with the pitchfork

These dreams assist her decision to help
Joseph escape from Ireland. Eventually
the two arrive in Boston where more

telegraphed punches of the movie
Becauseof losinga bigfight, Donelly
is forced to leave Boston. He heads West
where heagain meets Christie. Thev both
participate in the Oklahoma land rush of
1893.
Howard's directorial career began
auspiciously with a charming cornedv
called Night Shift. Howard wasalsoat the
helm for Splash and Green, both moder-
ately successful and entertaining pictures.
Then the slide began

Two films followed that lacked common
