receives top ranking

The Association of American Medi-

of Medicine first in the nation for primary
The first-place ranking strengthens
the school's reputation for graduating fam-
ily doctors, pediatricians and internal
"Weare very gratified by this achieve-
ment said Dr. James A. Hallock, vice
chancellor for health sciences and dean of
the medical school. "Not only is it proof
positive that our medical school is meet-
ing its foremost mandate, but it also re-
flects the return on the hard work of so
many people in creating an environment
that allows primary care medicine to flour-
The AAMC conducted the survey by
looking back five years to the graduating
classes of 1987 and calculating how many
of those graduates are practicing primary
health care. The five-year time frame con-

More than half of the 1987 gradu-
ates of ECU's School of Medicine have
become primary care physicians. ECU's
ranking, shared with Southern Illinois,
showed 53.7 percent of graduates pur-
suing a career in primary health. The
percentage more than doubled the na-
tional rate of 25.6 percent.
ECU's School of Medicine,
founded in the mid70s, had a mission
to encourage and recruit medical stu-
dents in the field of primary health care.
According Hallock, the ranking shows
the school's consistent dedication to
producing general practitioners rather
"I think this report clearly demon-
strates the commitment that the school
has had to its mission of primary care,
and demonstrates the success that the
school has had in fulfilling that mis-

Work begins on video yearbook

Instead of turning to that fa-
vorite page in the yearbook, it's
time now to fast-forward to your
favorite partof the video yearbook.
Last spring, the med ia board voted
on the video yearbook to be the
unprecedented annual student
The Media Board spent
$53,000on new equipment for five
years, giving the yearbook an an-
nual budget of $10,000. In five
years, the equipment will need to
be updated. However, in previous
years, the university has spent at
least $60,000 annually to print a

includes a software application
called the video toaster. The video

According to Allen, the ma-
jority of colleges and universi-
ties are still using print instead of

toward video because the new gen-

medical analysts feel that the future
will produce a shortage in general
Hallock attributed ECU's
strong showing in the report to a
concerted effort to support and el-
evate primary care that begins with
the student admissions committee.
"Clearly the perceptionof stu-
dents who apply to this school is
that we as a school are interested in
primary care said Hallock. "So,
naturally we attract students who
share that same interest
Hallock also attributes the
success to other factors, such as the
rure. The curriculum exposes the
students to primary care early and
often. Parity given to primary care
in relation toother specialties isdue
to an organizational culture.
"We attract students to the
school who have an interest com-
ing in, which is a critically impor-
tantfactor'Hallocksaid. "Our cur-
riculum supports and encourages
family medicine and primary care.

wnif take it to its extremes, a criminal a
"The Criminal of today is the
innovator of tomorrow
Crime has been a very difficult
thing not only to define, but also to
enforce. Lack of responsibility on the
part of witnesses (most notably the
Kitty Genovese case, which I'll go into
later), is ever-changing societal views
that have a direct impact on Supreme
Court rulings and corruption in al-
most every part of the law enforce-
ment system are just a few problems
that a law enforcement official must
face when trying to do his or her job to
the best of their ability.
But possibly the most impor-
tant and significant aspectof criminal
law today is the fact that laws govern-
ing behavior have been re-interpreted
illegal behavior20 years ago is now
classified as acceptable.
Problems with interpreting
enforcing the law
Kitty Genovese was attacked
by a man armed with a knife. For a
time period of around 30 minutes to
an hour, Genovese cried for help,
scream and holler as she stumbled
around the quad in which she was
attacked. Only after she died did any-
onebothertocall thepoliceand report
To the best of my recollection,
that quad was surrounded on all sides
by high-rise tenements. If not all sides,
then it was enclosed by at least two, if
not three. Over 35 people saw the
attack take place either for the most
part or in its entirety � and did noth-
ing to stop it! Not one person raised
their window and yelled at the at-
tacker or called the police. On the
contrary, most sat in darkened rooms
and watched the event like it was on
society's unwillingness to get involved
served as a wake-up call to people's
lassitude in their belief of, "Oh, that
won't happen to me
This attitude is one of the cen-
tral problems law enforcement offi-
cials face when trying to do your job.
How can one "nab a bad guy" when
no one that saw the crime will come
forward to admit it? But more to the
point of this column, what example
are the courts setting by legalizing
certain actions that were illegal not
more than 10 years ago?
Society benefits from crime?
That quote from Durkheim
above thisarticle surrounds one of the
most interesting trends in law enforce-
ment I've ever seen. In the '60s, blacks
sitting in the front of busses or eating
at an all-diner was unlawful. But with
the advent of the civil rights move-
ment, those lawswereoverturned and
Mind you, 1 don't feel that seg-
regation should be re-instituted. But
if you look at the concept as a whole,
it gets a little scary. Using this ex-
ample to illustrate a generality and
take it to its extremes, a criminal can
stand in court and say that his crime
was committed for the good of soci-
ety. If believed, then there is a prece-
dent set for future cases. Wait a few
years and that particular action that
this person was indicted on will be
stricken from the books.
Think that's bad? Let me take it
one step further. Once higher courts
have nullified high verdict crimes
such as murder, rape or manslaugh-
ter, then the lower verdict crimes will
move up in their sentencing. Soon
enough, you may be arrested and be
tried for littering or spitting on the
sidewalk. Not only may you be tried,
but just think of a country with people
in jail or on death row for jaywalking.
OK, maybe I've gone off the
deep-end a little bit with this idea.
(Then again, maybe not?) But
Durkhiem is considered to be one of
the forefathers for our criminal justice
system today. Can I be faulted for
wondering if some of his views that
are considered outlandish today may
not be considered sound, say in 20
Society controls so much of our
judicial system today that it may not
be a big leap for us to seesomeofthese
not-so-sane ideas appear. New Su-
preme Court judges will probably be
needed within the next 10 to 15 years,
so who knows which way they'll go.
Only with some sane and ex-
tensive thought behind the rulings of
these cases can we be sure that our
country will not end up in this post-

front and headed forFicklenStadium,
where there was the promise of thrill-
ing moments, hard-hitting action and
intense competition �not to mention
the football game down on the field.
My girlfriend and I arrived at
the stadium an ample amount of
time before kickoff (or so we
thought in our youthful folly). The
problem was, we had General Ad-
mission tickets, probably because
of something bad I did when I was
10 or 11 years old.
General Admission is like fly-
ing coach on an airline, only it's worse
because the peanuts aren't even free.
Going to Pirate football games
didn't used to be this hectic. Not many
years ago, a football ticket was about
as valuable as a handful of Confeder-
Now, students have to present
a student LD. and a letter from their
Congressman just to get in the gate.
But that was BPB, (Before Peach
Bowl). Things change.
After fighting a swarm ot
other General Admissioners who
mosfly stood in the doorway aisles
like a herd of purple and gold deer
caught in a car's headlights, we
found a couple of seats on the end
of a bench, way up at the top of the
Bench seatingat a sportingevent
is OK I guess, but if the people around
me had had red hair I would have felt
like one of the Waltons at dinner time.
Having made it through the
trauma of locating a seat, I stuffed
some Kleenex into my nostrils to stop
my altitude-induced nosebleed and
prepared to watch the Pirates feast on
a few Hokies.
It wasn't long before those 15
tiny bottles of bourbon that the guy in
front of me had drank began to show
At first, there were subtle
signs that he was becoming intoxi-
cated, like when he yelled out,
"Wooo! (something) major strap in
a doodle 'urn Hokie (something)
and fire 'em (something) outta here,
woo doggie then proceeded to

show his excitement by throwing
up on his friend's sneakers.
It' a good thing the gam? was
televised Sunday night so he could
see the second half.
Mostly, the people sitting
around me at the game were well �
behaved and had a good time.
Some guys behind me had
brought a bottle of rum and they kegt,
the soft-drink urchins busy delivery
ing cups of ice-cold mixer.
These young men and women
deserve a big round of applause. I. -
don't know how much they get paid
for dragging those unwieldy trays of
drinks up and down the stands, but
whatever it is, it isn't enough.
Despite the massive crowds and
the attendant inconveniences of big-
time college football, all in all I had a
good day Saturday.
My girlfriend underestimated
the power of the bright sunshine and
looks like a Chernobyl survivor, but
on the other hand I got to see the

As an alumnus of ECU and a former

A few years ago, 1 attended the
Universityof North Carolina atChapel
Hill. I was able to see one election that
occurred there between three truly
rung for the office of SGA president.
For the purposes of anonymity, 1 will
refer to them as Mark, Bill and Rick.
In a nutshell, Mark was your
basic run-of-the-mill Republican. He
was an African-American as well and,
politically speaking, it seemed to me
that Mark was the choice of the major-
ity He had the upper-middle class
vote and the minority vote, which
when combined, compromised a good
70 percent of the voting population on
Chapel Hill's campus at that time.
Bill was, according to my room-
mate who was on his campaign staff,
a solid candidate for office. In reality,
he was the only other person in the
running for the presidential position.
Bill was a Political Science major, he
knew his way around the Student
Government bureaucracy and he
wanted to run a clean campaign. Bill
was basically the Democrat of the race.
Rick was the third party inde-
pendent candidate. His ideas were
similar to Bill's. He simply did not
have the support Billhad and it looked
as though he had a snowball's chance
in a certain netherworld dimension of
winning (note the slight foreshadow-
To make a long story short, Bill
won the election.
During the first runoff, no one
candidate had a clear majority of the
votes. Then during the second runof
of just the top two (Mark and Bill), Bill
received 53 percent of the vote.
But, problems began occurring
almost immediately. It was revealed
from other various SGA projects that
he was involved in, and had f unneled
them into his own campaign funds.
No one reallv liked this fact, but since
Mark did not win the election, there
was no problem Yeah, right).
There was no problem until less
than a week later it was discovered
that Bill and some of his campaign
and defacing ad posters and other
such campaign paraphernalia that be-
longed to Mark's camp.Both candi-
dates were disqualified from the elec-
tion after a long and drawn-out stu-
Rick (remember him?) was
given the office of president and did a
great job of running the SGA that
year Chapel Hill was the laughing
stock of the North Carolina college
system that year, at least until we got
Rick in office and running the show.
I am sure that by now every
reader is wondering what is the pur-
pose of the article. Welt, in the immor-
al words of Bill CosbyI toM you
that story to tell you this one "
Last spring, we elected
Courtney Jones and Sherry Smith to
the offices of president and vice-presi-
dent respectively. By "we" I of course
mean that small percentage of stu-
dents that had brains enough to real-
ize that voting does make a difference
and did so.
But anyway, less than two
weeks into the summer, Sherry Smith
announced she would be resigning
from the office of vice president due
to a prior work contract that she had
to fulfill. Everyone was, of course,
shocked. All of her supporters were
hurt and most of all, Courtney Jones
must have been stunned.
As a matter of fact, in last
Tuesday's paper, she went as far as to
say that she did not think it would be
a problem when Smith resigned be-
cause she thought thatSmith had gone
through all the necessary procedures
to gain exempt status. "There is a pro-
cess that you have to go through to be
exempt for the summer that was not
carried out by Sherry was the exact
quote that Jones made on the subject
Now, then, case closed, right?
Not by a long shot. Way back on May
20 when it was announced by The
East Carolinian that Smith had quit,
Jones stated flatly that she knew Smith
whole summer itinerary around the
fact that there was going to be no vice-
Well, gee whiz, it just seems
like Jones really knows her stuff and
had all her bases covered, huh?
Sorry, but I don't buy it. If Jones
knew that Smith was going to quit,
why did she choose her for a running
mate? Answer, because she knew it
would greatly increase her chances of
getting elected president. Also, why
were the voters not informed of this
If both candidates knew that
Smith was not going to be there for
part of her term before the election,
Answer, because Jones knew it would
out She also knew that The East
Carolinian's staff had offered up its
choice for president as being Jonathan
Brooks, not Courtney Jor-s.
The end result was mat the in-
formation did not leak, Jones was
elected and now there is a new elec-
tion for vice president set for Sept. 23.
A good friend of mine told me
that the reason most people do not
like politics is that they do not like the
way it works. That may very well be
true and on a national scale there is
not much I can do about this fact ex-
cept vote my conscience and hope for
However, on this campus, my
voice is a little bigger by comparison
and I want something done about this
situation. I propose a new election for
president to take place at the same
time as the vice presidential election
Allow no new candidates, that would
take up too much time � , simply
have a new runoff between Brooks
It will cost a little extra money
and the ECU student body will look
bad for a little while, but at least we
will have taken responsibility for the
actions of our own and we will have
put a person in office that everyone
knows the whole story about without
Let's put a president in office
who wants to fulfill the obligations of
president as well as display at least a
modicum of integrity - not someone
whohas proven that they will useany
means necessary to get into office.
Now then, any of you out there
that agree, get over to the SGA offices,
complain to the advisors, write to the
paper do whatever it takes.
Let's try to make a change and

Singing trio not

RiotS interrupt musical treat Sirming with a breath of fresh music,
By Pamela Revels
The Roches areoften described
as a folk-pop group, but since their
debut in 147f they have steadily
evaded being categorized.
The threesisters, Maggie, Terre
and 5uz7.v Roche, have produced
eight albums full of wit and hu-
mor. The group combines zany,
playful lyrics with heavenly har-
monies and the result is pure fun.
The music defies all of the other
neatlv pinpointed genres on the
Even though the trio's music
sways toward the ridiculous and
quirky, it is far from carefree. Many
of the songs deal with the ups and
downs of everyday life. The sub-
ject matter frequently rests on the
serious side, but the sisters never
lose their sense of humor.
A perfect illustration of this is
their latest album A Dove. The
gro Lip's sense of wit and irony pre-
vails in their choice to follow the
song "You're the One" with
"You're the Two which explain
the finer points of unfaithful rela-
tionships. Although this album
shifts to a more personal level than
the previous releases, The Roches
still maintain the witty repartee
they began with.
Maggie and Terre began sing-
ing folk music together in their
teens. The duet made an album in
1975 titled Seductive Reasoning.
A year later, their sister Suzzy
joined them for some Christmas
carolling in New York City. The
eloquent harmonies that the three
prod need co old not be denied, a nil
the duet became a trio.
Despite resistance, the sisters
insisted on playing their own in-
struments instead of singing over a
male-dominated band. After win-
ning this fight, the group became
an inspiration to other female mu-
sicians, such as The Indigo Girls.

Blade Runner achieved instan-

A vastly overpopulated Earth
of the future is facing a severe
backlash for genetic engineering.
Live human-like, but
murdering beings called
replicants, have been genetically
constructed to work as slaves on
other colonized planets. The
replicants look very human, and
some of them might be sneaking
to Earth to live as humans.
Enter Harrison Ford as Rich
Deckard, a "blade runner" whose
assignment is todiscover the mur-
dering replicants and eliminate
Deckard is saved from a
replicantattack by Rachel (played
bv Sean Young) who turns out to
be a replicant herself. Despite his
common sense, Deckard is taken
in by her looks and charm.
A climatic confrontation
erupts between Deckard and
replicant leader Roy Batty (Rutger
Hauer), and Deckard is finally
forced tofacehisduty toeliminate
Rachel as a renegade.
The desire to do a re-edited
version dates back to the film's

think people were over-awed by

confused by the storyline Scott
said. "After numerous previews,
we felt that the film needed some
additional narration, but I think
what we inserted was overkill.
Harrison (Ford) objected as well,
but it seemed to be required by the
audience, so we put it in

"I think this dark view of the
future was a bit shocking at the
time Scott continued. "Today,
it's much less so. Warner Bros,

they exhibited it in Los Angeles in

Michael Anderson has proven he is

Believe it, USC can
count on the loss
By Chas Mitch'l
Assistant Sports Editor
See 'Cocks, page 10
Head Coach Steve Logan and com-
pany, will tike aim this weekend at one of
East Carolina's long time nemesis. The
Gamecocks of South Carolina has a 8-1 lead
in head-to-head match-tips, and are look-
ing to revenge last year's loss to the Bucs.
According to Coach Logan, the pri-
mary reason why the Gamecocks are so
successful against the Pirates can be
summed up in one word, intimidation.
"I've been involved in two match-ups
with South Carolina and quite frankly, we
took the field scared Logan said. "This
time we will not be intimidated bv the team
or the size of the stadium
With two games under their belts, the
chances of a South Carolina rout are slim to
none. Even though VVilliams-BriceStadium
seats 75,lXX land the fans of the Gamecocks
can be loud, obnoxious and unruly, the
Pirates should come out of this match-up
On the offensive side of the ball, ECU
holds a decisive edge in consuming the
football field. While USC is still having a
hard time trying to find the offensive chem-
istry, Sean McConnelland Michael Ander-
son have made their own chemistry.
McConnell is like the Desert Fox, Gen-
eral Erwin RommelLhesetsup the ground
game and leaves the opposition in total
disarray, while Anderson fits the mold of
Storming Norman Schwarzkopf.
So, after 60 minutes of head slapping,
body smashing and ass-kicking football,
the Gamecocks will be cockless as the Pi-
rates romp over them. Pirate faithful, you
can "paint this one purple" as the total
package of offense, defense and special
teams will bring home yet another Pirate

Defensive Coordinator Chris Thurmond takes it one play at a time and lets the statistics come.
Vision creates leadership
for defense coordinator
By Warren Sumner
It is imperative for someone
who leads to have a vision. Luckily
for the East Carolina Pirates, their
defensive backs have such a leader
in the Defensive Coordinator Chris
Thurmond's attitude that "the
next play is the most important" has
already beo 'me standard on the Fi-
nite defense1. Given the defensive
stand made in the last minutesof the
Virginia Tech game, it seems the
Pirate defense is focusing on im-
proving their national ranking from
last year's 83rd. Ranking, however,
is of minimal importance to

most important, the statistics will

1 hurmi aid said tli.it "alignment
and assignment" is quite relevant to
his integral philosophy in coaching.
"The most important play is the next

his players to focus on that play and
not dwell cm the play that just oc-
Thurmond, a 39-year-old Okla-
homa native, began his career at
McAlesterhigh school in 1976, after
graduating from the University of
Tulsathepreviousvear. He returned
to his alma mater in 1983 and com-
pleted a nine year association, before
receiving the call to come to join
SteveLogan'scoachingstaff at ECU.
Thurmond credits much oi his
success in coaching to his mentor,
Bobby Troctor, a long-time second-
ary coach at the University of Okla-
"We have a similar personal-
ity he slid. "He took an interest in
me early in mv career, and always
answered any oi mv problems As
a local high school coach fhurmond
would drive to meet Proctor in the
Oklahoma film room and review

advice is still available on a weekly
basis, as the two friends talk often.

well it's always gcxd for us. The one

that we are never out of a game
Thurmond said. He is alwavs pre-
pared to motivate his defense into
stopping the other team, as was
proven in the last stand in the Vir-
ginia Tech game.
"We always prepare for pres-
sure situations he said. "But in a
situation like that there's not as much
pressure as other times, mainly be-

nothing other than ineptitude in
their first two games of the sea-
son, totaling just 13 points while

Bad timing (it is also Parent's
ECU's band plays better than
USC's. The 'Cocks receivers would

Senior Halfback Ronnie Williams suffered a separated

freshman Derrek Batson now starts at halfback.
Senior weakside linebacker Jerry Dillon has a broken
thumb on his left hand suffered against Syracuse. He did
play against Virginia Tech but did not start. Junior Thomas
Jones started at weakside linebacker.
