Wiretapping case goes to jury
By Jeff Becker
The jury in the federal wire-
tapping trial of the two former ECU
employees began deliberation late
Monday afternoon and is expected
to reach a verdict today.
John Burrus, former Public
Safety captain, and Teddy
Roberson, former director of Tele-
communications, are accused ot
tapping two ECU phone lines in
1990. The trial began last Tuesday
in U.S. District Court in New Bern.
Roberson and Burrus face
four counts each of federal wire-
tapping violations and one count
of not reporting a crime. They both
could serve a maximum of 23 years
in prison if convicted on all counts.
In closing arguments Mon-
day, federal prosecutor David
Folmer told the jury to ignore temp-
tation to blame higher administra-
tors at ECU for ordering the tap and
study the evidence that indicates
Burrus and Roberson acted alone.
Roberson's attorney, Mike
Howell, told the jury thatRoberson
should be found innocent because
Burrus suggested he make the taps.
Burrus testified Monday that
he had not met Roberson until two
tapes had already been made and,
therefore, could not have autho-
rized the tap. Burrus said he first
learned about wiretapping at a
meeting with Roberson, Evan
Midgette, assistant director of hu-
man relations, and James DePuy,
director of public safety.
Burrus said that at the meet-
ing he learned Roberson had taped
the phone conversations of tele-
communications employee Brooks
Mills. He said DePuy told him the
tapes indicated Mills was dealing
drugs and instructed him to start
an undercover investigation of
Roberson testified that he
started having trouble with Mills
in July 1989. Roberson said he sus-
pected Mills, a convicted drug
felon, of using illegal drugs and
had heard rumors that Mills had
In the spring of 1990,Roberson
said he met with Burrus and
Midgette to discuss the possibility
of Mills carrying a pistol. During
the meeting, Roberson said Burrus
suggested he place a tap on Mills'
"1 don't remember how it
came up, but Capt. Burrus asked
me a few questions about record-
ing Mr. Mills phone conversations,
like can you record his conversa-
tions, would he know they were
being recorded, how hard would it
be to do that Roberson said. "The
fact he was a policeman led me to
believe it would be OK
A few days after the meeting,
Roberson said he placed a micro-
phone on Mi ll's telephone and con-
nected the microphone to a mini-
cassette recorder hidden in hi s desk.
Roberson said he made three tapes
of Mills' conversations.
The first tape took about a
week to make, and another meeting
was set up between himself,
Midgette and Burrus to discuss what
he had recorded, Roberson said.
According to Roberson, no
one at the meeting authorized him
to make more tapes, but no one
told him to stop the recordings.
"After I made the first tape,
my impression was to make an-
other tape Roberson said. "After I
had already turned the first tape
over to them, I was not discouraged
to make a second tape
Roberson said he finished
makinga second tape of Mills' con-
versations in early June 1990, and
he turned over both tapes to Burrus
Burrus testified that he took
the tapes and gave them to his
secretary for transcription.
"I made a copy of the tran-
scripts and gave it to Jim DePuy
Burrus said. "The original went in
The transcripts of Mills' con-
versations contain several suspi-
cious discussions but do not spe-
cifically mention drug activity.
DePuy testif;ed that the in-
formation on the tapes prompted
him to begin an undercover inves-
tigation of Mills.
"With the knowledge of that
information, we initiated an inde-
pendent investigation DePuy
said. "I could notignore it. Morally
and ethically, I thought it was my
duty to pursue a suspected drug
dealer on campus
Michael Swinson testified
Monday that DePuy recruited him
as a part-time undercover agent in
1989. Swinson, who goes by the
nickname "Peanut said Burrus
assigned him to investigate Mills in
early June of 1990.
Swinson said he posed as an
ECU student assigned to the tele-
communications department for
community service and worked
with Mills for a two- to three-week

Tim Johnson, general manager of
WZMB, that their proposed ben-

them and the university open to

attorney's office advised the Board
tha t the event should not take place
with any involvement by any rep-
resentative of the university.
The attorneys based their
advice on the conclusion that
WZMB was a co-sponsor of the
event. That conclusion was based
on the information that WZMB
selected the bands, set the ticket
price, had promoted the event on
the air and would receive the gate
At the Media Board meeting
on July 14, Johnson proposed to
sponsor the WZMB Greenville

pose would be to raise money to
pay production costs for release of

ing and communication majors by
applying hands-on knowledge
and to allow WZMB to take on a
project that would give ECU na-

Burrus testified thathe did not

mem, stated that "it is undisputed
that WZMB constitutes a 'spon-

In outlining tort liability, the
university attorney's office went
on to state that "there is a national
trend emerging which makes it
more likely that liability will ex-
tend to those who provide alcohol
to persons who subsequently in-
In citing cases that illustrate
this "trend the university
attorney's office cited:
� The Supreme Court of
North Carolina held that a social
host who provides alcohol to
guests can be held liable for inju-
ries caused by intoxicated guest's
negligence if host knew or should
have known that guest was intoxi-
cated and "known to be driving
� North Carolina has a Dram
Shop Act that recognizes actions
against tavern owners and em-
ployees who knowingly sell or give
alcoholic beverages to any person
who is intoxicated.
� An Alabama court has held
mat action could be brought un-
der that state's Dram Shop Act
against sponsor of event at which
alcohol is provided. (Martin v.

stated that the university could
argue that there was no liability
attached to itself�via WZMB �
as the station merely caused "a

nity for other causal agencies to
The attorney's office con-
cluded that since neither WZMB
nor the Media Board were insured,
the university becomes the prime
target as "deep pocket" under the
Tort Claims Act.
On Sept. 24, the Media Board
convened to discuss, among other
things, the WZMB situation. Terry
Avery, Media Board chair, said
the biggest problem with the
O'Rockefellers Buffet event was
the relation of the acronym
(W.Z.M.B.) to the caJl letters of the
Johnson defended the Buf-
fet, stating that the people who
worked on the event did so as
private individuals, not as mem-
bers of WZMB. Johnson also said
that the suggestion for the event's
title came from the manager of
O'Rockefellers and also apolo-
gized if his personal participation
was misconstrued, but that he
couldn't cancel the Buffet because
of its nature as an O'Rockefellers
Avery said the Board had two
important issues to decide at the
next meeting. The first was
whether or not a policy should be
enacted based on the information
received from the university attor-
neys. They must also decide if
WZMB, as the radio station, did
have a part in the Buffet held at
The main issue in this lengthy
set of events is whether or not the
members of the WZMB manage-
ment staff acted as representatives
of WZMB or as private individu-
als when promoting the Buffet.
Johnson argued that the
O'Rockefellers event was not a
WZMB-sponsored event; that he
and the other persons involved
were acting in a private capacity
and therefore solving the liability
Johnson also demonstrated
steps (i.e. flyers, disclaimernotices)
that were taken to totally disasso-
ciate the radio station from the
The Media Board voted Oct.
8 as to the question of WZMB's
involvement with the Buffet in
September. The vote, taken twice,
ended in a tie both times and can
be brought up by any board mem-
ber in the future until it is resolved.
The Board must also decide
if a policy should be drafted and
established banning WZMB from
the downtown bars pending the
information received from the at-
Arguments in defense of
WZMB included situations where
campus organizations, such as the
American Marketing Association
and the National Women's Stud-
ies Alliance, have held meetings at
various downtown establish-
ments. Tailgating, wine-and-
cheese parties and events where
alcohol has been brought on cam-
pus were also brought up.
Avery stated that the univer-
sity would need to look at this
problem on a campus-wide level,
not just restricted to the media and
its inherent visibility.
"If university officials look
at the Media Board and WZMB,
then they also should question
possible liability other campus or-
ganizations may incur Avery
The Board took a vote Oct. 8
to instruct WZMB to cease any
involvement with downtown bars
until a final decision was reached
with the university attorneys. The
vote was passed, restricting
WZMB from association with lo-
cal taverns, even as reporting as a

definition, the definition of "com-

found in very few foods. The intes-

without the necessary calcium for

The oils and livers of marine

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

Skin color is a tradeoff. 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

A SIDEWARDS GLANCE
By David J. Jones
Smoking ban protects non-smokers
"It's my body and they're my
lungs, what right do you have to
tell me I can't smoke in a public
Sound familiar? There still
seems to be a big controversy re-
garding the issue of the smoking
ban. If you are a smoker you may
as well put the paper down or
move on to another article, be-
cause this is probably going to tick
you off a little.
Why is this a problem? I'm
not even going to address the fact
that it has been proven over and
over again that cigarette smoking
is the second or third worst thing
you can do to your body. Neither
am I going to address the fact that
it has also been proven that sec-
ond-hand smoke is very danger-
ous to non smokers.
Folks, it's just a matter of com-
mon courtesy. Smoker's rights are
not being violated. Nonsmokers
rights are being protected. I know
it sounds like a play on words but
it is not.
A famous politician was asked
once todefine just whatindividual
rights were and how far they ex-
tended. Instead of giving a whole
lot of technical jargon and a long
drawn out report he gave a hypo-
thetical case. The case was of one
man who was in the process of
hitting another man because of an
argument they were having. For
the purposes of this example let's
call the man doing the hitting, man
"A" and the man being hit, man
"B A is perfectly within his rights
to hit B up to and only up to the
split second before A's fist con-
nects with B's face. The instant
thata connection is madeB's rights
have been violated.
Obviously this is a crude il-
lustration, but it will serve the
purposes of my argument. A
smoker has all the rights in the
world to smoke up until I have to
breathe his or her smoke. Smoke
has been proven to present a clear
danger to my body (not to men-
tion the fact that cigarette smoke
Many people say that non-
smokers are being to fanatical
about the smoking issue. To a cer-
tain extent I will agree with them.
SGA president Courtney Jones
brought out the point that during
night classes women were now
forced to go outside to smoke.
Jones pointed out that going out-
side classroom buildings at night
is notexactly the safest thing to do
here in Greenville and I am in-
clined to agree with her.
However, how complicated is
it to negotiate a designated smok-
ing area for these people? The an-
swer is that it's notThat is the
whole point behind the concept of
compromise and it is exactly how
the situation should be resolved
but the ban must stand except in
situations like the one just de-
In my family, my father is a
smoker and my mother is a non-
smoker. My father understands
that his smoking bothers mom in
the house. The cigarette smoke
usually travels over to mom and
she is forced to breathe it (at which
point a lot of hacking and cough-
ing and complaining ensues).
Rather than get fanatical about the
issue and start screaming about
smoker's rights my father now
goes outside (usually on the front
porch) when a nicotine fit besets
Maybe the fact that a ban had
to be enacted says something about
the state of affairs in our society. If
smokers became more courteous
about when and where they light
up and if nonsmokers weren't al-
ways in a uproar, when a smoker
happens to make a mistake and
light up in the wrong place or
situation, there would be no need
for such a ban. But, alas such is the
state our society is in. So until the
current status quo is changed (a
change that I am all in favor of) the
ban must stand.
It must stand if for no other
reason to show us all how much
like children we act even though
we are supposed to be adults.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Clinton personifies 'American Dream'
To the Editor:
This elections year is different
because there is a feeling of ur-
gency about the future of America.
This serse of alarm has grown
into a gnawing fear; fear that the
middle class is an endangered spe-
cies and the American Dream is
dying. Something is definitely out
of whack when the richest 1 per-
cent of the population has more
money than the other 90 percent.
It is time for a change to protect

Dining services should change its ways
To the Editor:
In a time when everyone, in-
cluding more and more busi-
nesses are becoming environmen-
tally conscious, we were shocked
to realize that our own university
wasn't doing all it could to pro-
mote "saving the environment

sities, such as the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill,

'Pop music' slams at Attic
By Layton Croft
With a decade-long deluge of
categorical offshoots, "pop music"
has had a lot to deal with.
Alternative, industrial, grunge
and techno are words construed by
the press, contrived by the music
industry and thrived on by the
Such words label bands and

sound. But more importantly, such
labels serve to carve the ever-diver-
si fying pop music smorgasbord into
Two of North Carol ina's exem-
plary "pop" bands, Jennyanykind
and Dillon Fence, played to an
amoeba-like sweat mob Saturday
at a packed Attic.
The music zealots who flocked
to the venue, though unnecessarily
restrained by goofy barriers and
goofier bouncers, proved the pop
equation. That is: Vel 1-wri tten, aes-
thetically pleasing muskfans who
pay to see and hear that music
Jennvanvkind, a seven-month-
old trio,attracted a dozen-plus pro-
Dillon Fencers away from the bar
and up to the stage for the last half
of their 40-minute set.
Sans popular music,
Jennyanykind fosters a pop appeal
not unlike that of Jan Morrison,
Screaming Trees and Buffalo Tom.
The band � Michael Holland (gui-
tar, vocals), Mark Holland (drums)
and Tom Royal (bass) � creates a
kinetic flux of music that broods,

With the release of
Norman Brown's album, Just
Between Us, Motown Records
introduces its new Mojazz la-
Motown's press release de-
fines Mojazz as a "vehicle for
experimentation in music with-
out the handcuffs and restric-
tions of the past
If future releases under the
Mojazz label possess the dy-
namics of Just Betzveen Us,
Motown will become a major
force in the jazz arena.
Norman Brown is truly in-
credible � his fingers run up
and down the fretboard like
excited ants. Stevie Wonder
said of Brown, "He sounds like
he was bom playing Listen-
ers may make a comparison
between Brown and Gairge
Benson, but the style is defi-
nitely pure Norman Brown.
The first track on jiist Between Us, "Stormin
is an aptly titled track � the thumping bass and
Brown's blistering licks kick up a storm. On the
line notes, the word "jam" is beside every track,
and that's the way it is. This whole album smokes.

Norman Brown's album, Just Between Us,
should delight jazz lovers.

mellow, but Brown's
guitarwork is phenom-
"Sweet Taste" jux-
taposes Brown's guitar
with a heavy bass riff
and what wouid seem
to be an awkward back-
ground riff, but they all
fit together to form a
sweet taste for the ear.
Included on Just Be-
tioeen Us is a delicious
cover of Stevie
Wonder's "Too High

and playing the har-
monica. Other guests
include Boyz II Men,
Ronnie Laws and Kirk
Whalum. The Earth,

McKay and bassist
Verdine White on
Brown's cover of EW&F's classic, "Love Holiday
Add the singing Ferri sisters and the result is a debut
album that is beautiful.
I cou Id go on and on about the tracks and Brown's
enormous depth but instead I'll just say, "Buy the

you don't like jazz, buy it anyway.

Guitarist Narciso Yepes will perform for the National Orchestra of

Yepes is regarded as one of the greatest musicians of
our day. He has developed an unique method, new
resources and possibilities for the guitarfromhishard
work and stud v oi the instrument. His technique has
opened new horizons for the instrument which has
inspired manycomposerstodedicatehimnew works.
Yepes is general ly seen and welcomed on concert and
recital stages in North and South America, Europe,
the Near and Far East and Australia. Yepes also
devotes a considerable amount of his time to music
research and fine-tuning his craft.
The National Spanish Orchestra not only per-
forms Spanish music of our present times; they also
include major works for symphonic orch astras of the
18th and 20th centuries.

Waters 'amused' with new album
By Cliff Coffey
What does it take for a musician to be noticed? Roger
Waters knows but has decided to avoid it.
Even with a new album, Amused to Death, he avoids
attention. He doesn't like to do publicity shots and he
doesn't give many interviews. In the few videos he has
done, he barely appeared in them. He's written several
platinum-selling albums yet people still do not know who
He has written rock radio staples such as "Money
"Welcome to the Machine "Wish You Were Here" and
probably the most recognizable song, "Another Brick In
The WallStillheispractically unknown.lt took the Berlin
"Wall" show for him to get any recognition.
After guiding Pink Floyd through their five best sell-
ing albums (Dark Side of the Moon still holds Billboards'
record for most weeks on the top lOOsellingalbumsatover
175 months.) Waters left the band to pursue a solo career.
Since 1984 he has released threesoloalbums,includinghis
newest, Amused to Death.
Amused to Death has Jeff Beck wielding the ax for
Waters and it makes a remarkable difference.
Waters is able to mix strong guitar work with melody-
Sometimes the mood overpowers the musk and ice
versa. The mixture of the separate entities merge to give
Waters his strongest effort to date.
Since Waters revolutionized the idea of a concept
aibum,itis predictable that Amused to Dnjfi would also fall
under the same category. The unifying theme in all four-
teen songs is the cost of war and the mass reaction to it: "I
saw the frontline boys popping their pil IsSick of the mess
they findOn their stage And the bravery of being out of
Waters has never been known for his peppy lyrics and
this venture keeps that trend in tact Amused is dedicated
to a soldier that died in World War I, William Hubbard.
The first release from the album is "What God Wants,
Part 1 The song is full of juxtaposed thoughts and the
music reflects this mood also.
With tongue in cheek, Waters sings about "Perfect
Sense" in wars. The chorus, which he calls the global
anthem, is, "Can't you seeIt all makes perfect sense
Expressed in dollars and cents, Pounds, shillings and
He has sports announcer Marv Albert call a play-by-
play of a naval attack, making light of the situation.
Thecontradiction between muskand lyrics on Amused
tricks the listener into thinking that a song might be
uplifting and optimistic, but Waters never let up.

Pizza hasbeendeveloped in the Midwest and

Papa Oliver's has brought in renowned Chef
Robert of R.J. Consultants out of San Diego, Cal if.
to present the tastiest pizza and subs that com-
bines both health and the southern market.
With a degree in baking science and technol-
ogy, Robert has designed a formula specifically
for the South. His crusts, toppings and sauces are
one of a kind and reflect the unique flavor of
"I've made more than five million pizzas
said Robert. "There's no pizza like this in the
Current ideas for pizzas include a hot and
spicy pizza, country ham (designed to be low in
fat), hickory smoked and Italian chicken, jusl to
name a few. Also ottered are Papa Pita fries, Olfie
bread stk ks and a special Pirate Piza.
The Pirate Pizza will be decided b ballot in
Greenville neighborhoods. Residents will vote as to
the pizza's toppings and if the Pirates win their foot-
ball game, the community will share in the win with
a special-priced pizza.
Papa Oliver's hot and spicy pizza is just that �
hot and spicy. If your stomach can't handle the heat,
then stay out of the kitchen. Make sure you've got
plenty of liquid near you after eating even one slice�
that heat stays in your mouth for a full five minutes
after eating it. Weak stomachs are not for this one.
Their regular pizza � mine was loaded with
extra cheese � fills you up without feeling like you
can't move out ot your chair. Thecrust on either pizza
is one of the best in Greenville. It's light and tasty and
will spoil the eater to any other pizza. Taste Papa's
crust and bread and then taste the competition's �
there's no contest.
Theonlythingagainst Papa's pizza is their grease.
After opening the box from delivery, 1 discovered the
bottom to be saturated with grease.
Though the great taste offsets this problem, it can
get to beahale trying to hold on to oneslice after the
other. Napkins are a must � Papa's is nothing if not
a messy meal.
"We make pizza the way people li ke it � not the
way we like it Papa's pizza emphasizes this owner's

reputation and letting the pizza-lover decide for him-

Pirates can't compete with big dawgs
By Chas Mitch'l
Assistant Sports Editor
During my road trip to
Durham, I saw a bumper sticker
that said it all. "If you can't run
with the big dawgs, better stay on
the porch Not that the Blue
Devils of Duke are considered one
of the big dawgs in NCAA
football, but after Saturday's
match-up one may want to think
Duke used both the finesse
and a smashmouth approach in
dismantling the ECU attack On
offense, neither Sean McConneU
nor Michael Anderson could
manage to generate the offensive
unit in a consistent manner.
Sporadic passing and ques-

demise for the Pirates

Head Coach Steve Logan said.
"That's the best football game

They were mistake free for the
On the other side of the ball,
defensive coordinator Chris
Thurmond could only watch in
disbelief and shock as his defense
struggled to stop the Blue Devil
Not just on the board, but on
the field did the Pirates go down
in flames. On numerous occasions
the ECU defense missed the initial
tackle which enabled the Duke
ball carriers to pile up the yards
and the first downs.

defense than we did nose guard

played us. It shows by the score

Tony Davis, Ernie Lewis and

from the scorn of the fans and

which resulted into a fumble,
Beasley had these comments:

Owens finds first year difficult
By Warren Sumner
Deke Owens, East Carolina's
placekicker, has faced many difficult situa-
tions in his first year starting as a Pirate. He
has faced difficult kicks, the heartbreaking
losses of his team, as well as contending
with the academic pressure of a Criminal
However, nothing is more trying than
the intense hounding of Pirate fans, upset
with Owens' performance this season
Owens, weary of the harshness of these
fickle football fans, is ready to relieve him-
self of some of that pressure.
"I'm not going to say what the fans are
saying is completely unjust Owens said.
"But I feel people in general just don't un-
derstand kicking. Owens said that he feels
the Pirate's kicking game has been unfairly
blamed formuchof the Pirate football team's
problems mis year.
Owens said his performance and the
performance of punter Michael
Jacobs had been somewhat
"used as an excuse" this year
by critics of the Pirate football
team. Owens said that Pirate
Head Coach Steve Logan's
comments, critical of the kick-
ing game during media inter-
views, had been misinter-
preted by Pirate fans.
"Coach's comments were
dramatized and taken out of
context Owens said. "A lot of that misun-
derstanding has caused what Michael and
I have faced this year Owens, however,
readily admits that his game does need vast
improvement and will approach solving
his problems mentally.
"I'm going to try to look at this season
in two parts he said. "The first part is
behind me, now I have to try to fix my
problems in the second part Owens had a
relatively uneventful game Saturday against
Duke. No field goals were attempted in the
Pirate's losing effort against the
Blue Devils, but he connected
on both of his attempted extra
Owens, hoping to enter law
school next fall, is unsure
whether he will return to the
Pirates next year and exchange
his kicking shoes for law books.
Should Owens make a re-
turn to the Pirate roster, he will
face the pressure of competing
with last year's place kicker, Anthony
Brenner, who was ruled academically ineli-
gible this season. Owens said he is not
concerned with that proposition and is
solely concentrating on this year.
Owens is optimistic about making the
improvement necessary to develop into a
reliable kicker for the Pirates and end the
"roller coaster" inconsistency he has pro-
vided so far.
"I know I'll kick to my potential, it's just
a matter of when

Which explains how rich folks
come down with dictator lust,
whether they're Ross Perot or George
Steinbrenner or Jack Kent Cooke. So
all arguments, dear HA, are caused
by conflicts of these natural impulses:
The owners wannabe dictators and

In Minneapolis, the National
Football League owners lost yet an-
other lawsuit trying to keep players
under their considerable thumbs.
And in St. Louis, baseball own-
ers made noises as if they want to
wage war against the players, who
have been invincible for 20 years.
The yard can wait. Let's try to
understand this foolishness.

These caterwaulings came 103
years ago. In 1889, the great player
John Montgomery Ward created the
first players' union and said: "There
was a time when the League stood for
integrity and fair dealing. Today it
stands fordollarsand cents Players
have been bought, sold and ex-
changed as though they were sheep
instead of American citizens
That last sentence spoke of the
reserve clause in contracts. A player
was club property and had to accept
slavery or get out of baseball.
That was 103 years ago. Casey
Stengel was born that summer.

But in those instances, it al-
