Sherry Smith was unable to fill
Smith resigned May 7 to ful-
fill a summer work contract she
was committed to before she ran
for the job of vice president. It
was her understanding that she
would be able to receive a written
excuse from the SGA to return in
the fall and resume her job.
"I thought it was really
simple, I thought all I had to do
was get a written excuse from the
secretary Smith said.
However, the SGA consti-

of the three members of the ex-

an exemption must appeal to the

After three days of confer-

came to the decision that Smith
would not be able to keep her job
if she left for the summer.
Smith said she decided she
needed to leave for the summer

A trial date has been set for Danny Rolling, who is charged
with murdering five college students last year. Rolling will go on
trial Sept. 1, 1993 for killing four University of Florida students
and one Santa Fe Community College student. All were found

The oldest independent school of technology in the United
States will not be open this fall, due to financial problems and
declining enrollment. The trustees of Spring Garden College said
they decided to cancel classes "after extensive but unsuccessful
efforts to re-secure the long-term viability of the institution The
college, which offers degrees in computer technologies, architec-

Six injured in gunf ight at NCCU
Six people were injured when gunfire broke out during an
argument Saturday night on the North Carolina Central Univer-

were treated at local hospitals and released by Sunday morning.
The dispute began when a man assaulted a female student while
she was talking to friends, officials said.

The library science program
at ECU recently moved from the
College of Arts and Sciences to the
School of Education.
According to Chancellor Ri-
chard Eakin, the transfer became
effective July 1. The reorganiza-
tion of these programs will com-
bine librarianship with media and
The Department of Library
and Information Studies had been
a part of the ECU College of Arts
and Sciences since 1966. Dr. Keats
Sparrow, dean of the College of
Arts and Sciences, said although he
is sorry to lose this department, he
believes the recent reorganization
will enhance the program for stu-
dents interested in library science.
"The merger with the School
of Education is a logical placement
for library science, holding poten-
tial for greatly strengthened pro-
grams Sparrow said.
The new department offers
both the Master of Library Sciences
(MLS) and Master of Arts in Edu-
cation (MAEd) degrees. As a part
of this reorganizational transfer,
the new department was renamed
the Department of Library Studies
and Education Technology.
Dr. Charles R. Coble, dean of
the School of Education, said the
merger prepares the students for
the information society in the 21st
century, and he welcomes the new
department into his school.
"I am pleased with this op-
portunity for a closer integration
of instruction for classroom teach-
ers, library services and media re-
sources Coble said. "Interweav-
ing these programs will enable us
to instill in teachers an apprecia-
tion for how they and their stu-
dents can access information
Lawrence Auld will serve as
the new chair for the department
of Library Studies and Education
Technology. Auld was previously
chair of the Department of Library
Information Studies. Auld said he
is looking forward to workingwith

"The new department opens
the way to several exciting oppor-
tunities for developing new sys-
tems of delivery of information to

Sorority rush down from previous years
By Shay Pierce
Sorority rush began Aug. 17,
but open bids are still being dis-
tributed by those sororities who
did not make quota.
There were 263 women reg-
istered for fall rush compared to
306inl991. After 77 dropped out,
177 were left to receive bids.
Quota was set at 33 for each
sorority excluding Zeta Tau Al-
pha. Originally only two sorori-
ties made quota, but most have
been able to pick up their full
amounts through open bids.
According to thePanhellenic
Council President Jean McAleese,
there seems to be a trend across
the country with rushee numbers
down, possibly due to financial
reasons related to the recession.
Another problem panhellenic
acknowledges is that "Gir!i seemed
to have certain preferences
McAleese said. Because of these
segmented groups, many rushees

Germany to lower interest rates Motorcycle

Bundesbank's policy of keeping
rates high to battle inflation.
Germany had been under
intense pressure from the United
States and economical h struggling
allies in Europe to reduce rates.
The United States also has

The size of the German rate
cut, to be announced Monday, will
be about 1.5 percentage points, ac-
cording to Italian sources.
Short-term German interest
rates have been in the 8.75 percent
to 9.75 percent range.
The move surprised foreign
financial markets. In early Asian

dollar rocketed from 1.44 (ierman

Gun and 'Rambos' are the rule
One of the most dangerous cor-
ners in one of the world's most
dangerous capitals is the gun
bazaar at the central marketplace
It stands as a stark re-
minder of how difficult the task
will be to establish order in a
country gone gun crazy.
The bazaar is actually just
two tables in an un-imposing
corner stall, tucked away at the
end of a dusty alleyway.on the
divided city's south side.
It is a kind of convenience
store for heavy firepower, offer-
ing weapons ranging from hand-
guns and hand grenades to as-
sault rifles and grenade launch-
Somali men, young and
old, come here to have guns re-
paired, replaced or reloaded.
In a city awash with guns,
firearms, it seems, come cheaper
than food and fuel.
The U.Smade M-16 as-
sault rifle sells for about $75.
Much preferred by the young
militiamen who swagger
through the town is the Russian-
made AK-47, which sells for
It is perhaps a telling sign
of the chaos in Somalia that the
priceof ammunition recently has
risen to 5,000Somali shillings �
just under $1 � for each bullet.
Foreigners typically are
greeted at the gun bazaar with a
chorus of unmistakable and
menacing "clicking" sounds
made by clips being fastened,
rounds being loaded and safety
catches being released.
Adan Gedi Adan, a Somali
translator, tells a foreign jour-
nalist to relax, that loading a
round and clickingoff the safety
catch is the way Somali men
greet each other as friends.
Since Somalia slid into an-
archy, the translator said, the
most popular videotape at street
stalls is "Rambo

The job of imposing some
kind of order on a country full of
gun-toting Rambos will fall first
to a U.N. contingent of 500 Paki-
stani soldiers, whose mission
will be to secure the Mogadishu's
port facilities, the international
airport and the warehouses
where relief supplies for the fam-
ine-wracked country are stored.
An advance team of 60 Pa-
kistanis is due to arrive here
Monday aboard a U.S. transport
The group's commander,
Brig. Gen. Imtiaz Shaheen, is un-
der no illusions about the diffi-
culty of the mission. "This place
is bad news he told reporters
here last week.
Shaheen said his troops
will be carrying only small arms
for self-defense and to secure
"You don't bring anti-tank
weapons he said, alluding to
the U.N. peace-keeping role.
"You don't bring cannons, and
you don't bring heavy offensive
Shaheen said the most im-
portant piece of information for
the arriving troops will be a de-
tailed explanation of the nature
of Somalia's gun-fixated society,
so his soldiers will know that
not everyone who carries a gun
here is an enemy.
Shaheen, in an interview,
said he expects incidents to oc-
cur, citing as an example the

The other day, Johnny, or
rather Krazy J. from Southside
Furniture Liquidators damn near
jumped out of the screen and into
my living room. He was talking at
about a thousand wo. ds a minute.
He mentioned something about
sleepers and sofas, TVs and ste-
reos, all available with 0 inter-
est, and no money down. He was
dressed in a cowboy outfit, and he
kept jumping up and down, hop-
ping from one end of the store to
the other. I kind of felt sorry for
this man. I mean, are times that
tough that this guy would give up
every, and I mean every shred of
dignity and self-respect?
Now folks, the producers of
this rubbage at Brand X Market-
ing probably looked into this ad
and decided this was the best way
they could do it. They looked at
the average viewer in this area
and concluded that the best way

is if you dress up like a cowboy

with the viewers or with Brand X

many of our core societal prob-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Increase in fans creates new problems for Ficklen

If someone has not already

change or stricter enforcements,
there will be some regrettable in-
What happened to the flood-

people slip and fall on dark rain-
During the first quarter, I
went to the men's bathroom only
to find desperate young women
standing in line for the toilets. I
knew the lines outside the
women's restroom to be far too
long and I overheard one of the
ladies state that the women's room
had no toilet tissue. Some males
entered screaming horrible oaths
at the women, such as "Get the f�
out, bitch and "Find your own

came while other men (boys) beat
on the stalls occupied by women.
"Southern gentlemen' is such a
fleeting term these days.
Tailgating before the game
left much to be desired, especially
when there are two port-a-johns
per 1,000 people. The wooded area
near the baseball field seems to be
the most popular area for both

Now that more people are
going to the football games,due to
recent team success, more needs

'SAY, KID ANY CHANCE OF GETTIN'A PLAIN PL' SLICE OP APPLE Pig AfiOgNPMER� ?1
By Chas Mitch I
Anti-multi-culturalism is a crime in itself
Is it taught, or is it assumed?
Dopeoplegrow up thinking
Anti-semites or do they grow-up
believing in the Supremacist
theory (be it black or white)? Reli-
gion has little if anything to do
with this subject, for the Toiah,
Koran and Bible speak of love and
preach togetherness throughout
Early Friday morning
around 3 after the bars of down-
town Greenville had closed and
all of the local eating establish-
ments had served up their last
pizza, burgers and fries, I was on
my way home from the publica-
tions building when I received an
unexpected, but overdue wake-
up call. As the streets were filled
with cars and trucks of drunks
and designated drivers, one par-
ticular vehicle transporting three
individuals slowly passed by my
direction and one of the passen-
gers shouted out, "Hey nigger,
what cha doing?"
1 would be lying if I said that
I wasn't mad, but being the prod-
uct of a multi-cultural family, rac-
ism has always been present. At
first 1 just stood there, feeling hurt
and shocked while wondering
what 1 had done to that person to
make them shout obscenities at
me. However, the rationalizations
were too far and few between, for
I know that hatred is a trait that we
are not born with, but it's some-
thing that we all acquire during
our life times.
Every living, breathing and
functional human being is preju-
diced. To be prejudiced is per-
fectly natural, but when hatred
and violence is the sole center of
one's prejudice, then there is a
Some people react to vio-
lence with additional violence,
while others try to curb the origi-
nal violence with words of love
and peace. 'Some say let's take an
eye for an eye, but soon this will
leave everyone blind" (to para-
phrase Dr. Maiiin Luther King,
Jr.). The truth of the matter is that
wehave reservations towardother
people and cultures simply be-
cause we are unfamiliar with that
particular situation. When Jane
Smith calls Connie Nakamoto a
jap, it not only shows her lack of
understandingbut her insensitive
nature for the Japanese culture.
Also, it reflects her level of educa-
tion. Until we, today's and
tomorrow's leaders tell not only
our children, but our parents and
friends that name calling and ra-
cial slurs are just a form of igno-
rance and hatred, and is no longer
acceptable, then maybe we can
It cannot be said enough that
history repeats itself when indi-
viduals fail to learn from previous
events in time.
When 1 was young, my
grandmother would tell me sto-
ries of the Holocaust, an even t that
took place within her lifetime and
has changed the course of history
that even today are just coming to
light. Aside from theobviouscon-
centration camps, mass genocides
and the systematic burning of live
hu. ian flesh, there are the stories
of how Jews and Gentiles united
for the betterment of mankind and
how large numbers of German citi-
zens lost their lives just attempt-
ing to help the millions of Jews
during a time of destruction and ,
Stories of how her close rela-
tives, neighbors and friends were
persecuted and tortured gave me
enough strength, guidance and
understanding to try to combat
the situat'on in a intellectual sense
and not a physical sense.
It has been said time and
are the products of our environ-
ment. It doesn't matter if we grew
up in the Southside of Chicago,
California, we reflect directly the
views of our parents, grandpar-
ents, friends and families toward
the outside world.
In order for our present and
future society to grow away from
ignorance and hatred, we must
begin to try to understand our
fellow people. Even though the
United States is referred to as the
"cultural melting pot" of the
world, we must learn to fuse our
difference together and express
ourselves in a more positive man-
The L.A. riots were just a
mere example of the current race
relations situation here in the
America. The ECU students who
participated in the hate crime
which was committed Friday
should be aware of not only the
criminal implications but the im-
pact on student behavior on cam-
pus as a whole.
I don't want to over state the
obvious from John F. Kennedy,
Martin Luther King or even
Malcom X, so why don't we just
offer a little respect and under-

than we were to them.

Upper Crust hosts poetry reading
"Vanities" casts obvious talent
By Claudette Peale
Wednesday, Sept. 9, marked the start of some-
thing new for poetry readings at ECU. Thanks to the
work of Adam Schonbrun, regular poetry readings
will now be held off campus at the Upper Crust
Dr. Patrick Bizarre began the evening with a
short welcome followed by Dr. Julie Fay, professor
of English at ECU and author of Portraits of Women,
a collection of poems.
Fay has been giving readings for roughly 20
years and says her influences range from
Shakespeare to Plath to the rock 'n' roll music of the
"It wasn't necessarily the music that influenced
me but the lyrics which were in themselves poems
Fay read several poems from Portraits of Women
along with new poems never read publicly.
A musical intermission by Mike Hamer and
Luke Whisnant, both ECU professors of English,
followed the poets.
Dr. Peter Makuck began the second half with
another reading. Makuck attended Kent State Uni-
versity in 1970 when the riots erupted there.
"My wife and I were both on the field that day:
1 guess we were lucky said Makuck.
Makuck came to ECU in 1976, where he has
been teaching and writing ever since.
So far he has written three btx)ks of poetry and
acollec tion of short stories. In addition, he hasedited
a collection of essays and presently works as an

The evening wrapped up with an open mike
where several ECU students read their poetry.

overall the atmosphere was relaxed.

Bakerv is slated for Oct. 7 at 8 p.m.

"Vanities" is the story oi three
high-school friends who grow up

will not remain the same, no mat-
ter how mui"h they would like it
to. 1 hev discover the age-old
maxim that people change with
time, .ind are not the people that
memory may have them be.
Opening night proved to be a
little choppy in its entirety. Pauses
were taken so often that it was
hard not to lose interest The obvi-
ous rear-on for the slowness was
the last minute addition of actress
Beth Quarles. With less than one
dav to rehearse, Quarles was
forced to act with the script in
front of her. Given enough time,
the script should disappear and
the acting talent should show
All of the actresses showed a
comraderieand togetherness that,
at times, overcame the script prob-
lems. Each complemented the
other with their internal connec-
tions and stayed consistent with
their character choices through-
out the play.
Kim Patterson, playing Mary,
gives a carefree performance in-
terlaced with bouts of realitv. 1 ler
avant-garde attitude is easily seen
through as a defense against the
world around her.
Pam Marcotte, who plays
Joanne, provides comic relief as
the prim and proper girl who has
her whole life planned out. A hus-
band, two kids and a house with a
picket fence is what Joanne wants
and gets, but to the exclusion of
realizing the actual world around
her. Marcotte's straight-laced,
blinders-on portrayal brings many
a laugh from the audience.
Last, but not least, is Quarles'
clutch performance as the intro-
spective Kathy. For someone who
had a script in front of her virtu-
ally the entire play, Quarles hits
some moments like the veteran
actress she is. Her quiet, unas-
sumingcharacter is the third point
on the triangle relationship and
promises to improve with time. �
Opening night's performance
should in no way be indicative of
future performances. With the ob-
vious talent in this cist, it's only a
matter of time until they reach the
level of excellence the) deserve.

two showcases designed to give
Greenville bands recognition.

the bands here and give the bands
the recognition they deserve
O'Rockefeller's and individu-
als of the management staff at
WZMBareworking together to pull
off the showcase, which will feature
four bands each night.
Along with local recognition,
W.Z.M.B. hopes to get the bands
regional and national attention. All
proceeds from both showcases will
go to the production of slim-line,
jewel case CDs. The 500 total CDs
will then be sent out to other radio
stations in the hope that they will
play the bands' music. Another
goal is to get the bands playing jobs
up and down the East Coast.
All the bands have paid for
their own recording time in sup-
port of this endeavor.

No survivors in Pirate soccer victory
By Bob Owens
Mount Olive College Goalkeeper
Tommy Popovic musthave felt like he went
down with the ship, Sept. 7 as the Pirate
soccer team sent Mount Olive College to the
bottom, 6-1, in the Pirate's home opener.
There were no survivors.
The first half was one for the ECU rook-
ies. Freshman David Little struck early for
the Pirates,scoringhisfirstcareergoal seven
minutes into the contest. Dan Staton col-
lected the assist.
Marc Mullin, a freshman from Jackson-
ville, put ECU up 2-0 on a penalty kick 29
minutes into the contest After a foul inside
the penalty box, Mullin set up and drilled a
screamer past thedivingPopovic, who may
have wished he was somewhere else. A
third freshman, Dusty Belk, scored an
unassisted goal at the 40-minute mark to
givethePiratesa3-01eadgoinginto the half.
Tim McCoy of Mount Olive provided
second half, scoring on a penalty kick that
slipped past ECU goalkeeper Chris Libert.
Veteran East Carolina forward Bryan
Harpole avenged the goal less than five
minutes later, putting ECU up a comfort-
When ECU head coach Scooty Carey
put junior Mike Patterson into the game in
the second half, i t was adding fuel to the fire.
Patterson, last season's second-leading
scorer, tallied two goals in less than 20 min-
utes of play in the team's scrimmage against
North Carolina Wesleyan, a feat he was
about to repeat.
Patterson found the back of the net on a
pass from JUCO transfer Zack Fine with 65
gone by to give ECU a commanding 5-1
His second and final goal of the contest
was indicative of the whole game.
With only five minutes remaining in
thecontestMountOliveattempted to mount
one final offensive surge. An errant pass
ended up at the feet of Patterson, and the
Pirate junior was off to the races. He broke
awayfromdefenderMike Reed near mid field
and went one-on-one with a charging
Popovic. Patterson faked right, dribbled left
and tapped the ball into the defenseless net,
cementing the final score, 6-1, in the Pirates'
favor. ECU ou t-shot Mount Olive 24-5 in the
On the downside for the Pirates, start-
ing goalkeeper Bryan DeWeese went down
with a mild shoulder injury late in the first
half of play. Chris Libert played the remain-
ing 55 minutes and picked up the shared
ECU then traveled to face the 14th-
ranked Tarheelsof North Carolina in Chapel
Hill on Sept 10. The Tarheels went up early
when Hassan Pinto scored the first of his
three goals 9 minutes into the contest � a
header fromsix yards out.Neither team was
able to generate any offense for the remain-
der of the half, and the Pirates rested, down
UNC went up 2-0 when David Monroe
scored a header off of a UNC comer kick at
the 57 minute mark. From then on, the expe-
rienced Heels went on to score three more
times in the remaining 20 minutes of the
contest. Pinto scored his second and third
goals at 57 and 77 minutes, with Michael
Masha delivering the final blow with two
minutes remaining to give UNC a 5-0 vic-
tory. Watson Jennson recorded the shutout
in goal for North Carolina, while DeWeese
and Libert split time for ECU. DeWeese
recorded seven saves in the contest, with
Libert contributing one. UNC out-shot the

On Friday night, East
Carolina's volleyball team beat
Mount Olive 15-4,15-6,15-4 and
claimed their first match win of
the 1992 season.
"I came into the locker room
tonight saying that I wanted to
kick some butt head coach
Martha McCaskell said. "I wanted
to see some confidence and some
intensity. I told the girls that you
have to wan tit, you ha veto know
you can do it and you have to be
out for blood every time you step
on the floor
On the offensive side of the
ball, Jenny Posey made things
easier on the team by serving a
total of four aces. Senior Wendy
Schultz led the Lady Pirates in
kills with 14 and senior Jenny Par-
sons contributed 36 assists.
Defensively, Jenny Parsons,
Jenny Posey, Wendy Schultz and
Leigh Wilcox all had three digs a
"Schultz came around in the
third game and really helped us.
Melanie Richards had three good
practices last week and she has
confidence. Windy Mizlo
played well. It was a team ef-
fort tonight McCaskill said.
The ECU volleyball team
returns to action on Sept. 15
when they travel to N.C. State

As the look of shock filled
the faces of the Hokie fans, Vir-

to pass to an apparent wide

Garrett Hall Kings of Hill for fourth straight year
They marched onto the hill
with enthusiasm that could not be
denied. They fought in vast num-
bers till the games concluded.
When the dust had settled, the
men of Garrett Hall left as King of
the Hill champions for the fourth
The fifth annual King of the
Hill competition was well a ttended
by students in all residence halls at
ECU. The competition boasted sev-
eral different events to compete in,
giving everyone something to in-
volve themselves with. There were
competitive events such as 3-on-3
basketball and volleyball, but there
were also some rather unusual
events thatweremadefor fun rather
than competition. Those that
seemed to be enjoyed the most were
the hoop-the-human event and the
The true goal of the King of the
Hill competition is attendance by
as many students as possible. Par-
ticipation is the most important
aspect of the games. Students had
many different reasons for partici-
pating, but the reason shared by all
participants was overall fun. Along
with the opportunity of competi-
tion there was also a social aspect to
the event. Many students came
solely to meet people.
"King of the Hill is pretty cool
because everybody comes out to
have fun and support their hall
GregSchehr said. Many people felt
this way about the event and
thought it was agreataltemative to
the other social options associated
with college life.
"I think King of the Hill is great
because sometimes it gets a little
boring around here and this gives
us something to do as an alterna-
tive to going downtown or par-

tug-of-war competitions between
the two top finishers in each divi-
sion. In the female competition, the
women of Greene hall were on top.
The Co-ed division ended with a
standoff between Jones and
Fleming Halls. After an intense and
drawn-out struggle, Jones Hall was
declared thewinner.The males had
an exciting finish as the men of
Garrett and Aycock Halls fought
for pride. The boys from Garrett
won, ending a methodical compe-
tition for the men of main campus.
"If we were from Scott or
Aycock, it would be different. If we
lived across the street, it wouldn't
be as important for us to win. We
wouldn't have as much incentive.

rules westill thought wecould win.
It used to be that whoever had the
greatest participation was the
