Federal prosecutor
drops wiretapping case
Tuesday, October 20,1992

According to the US. Attor-
neys' office, no furtherindictments
are expected to be handed down
in the case involving illegal wire-
tapping that took place on cam-
pus in May and June of 1990.
Teddy Roberson, former di-
rector of telecommunications, and
John Burrus, former Public Safety
captain, were acquitted Oct. 13 of
federal wiretapping violations af-
ter a five-day trial marked by con-
flicting testimony and contradic-
tory statements.
"We have heard so many
conflicting stories, I wouldn't
know how to pursue the matter at
this point said U.S. attorney
David Folmar, who handled the
prosecution of Roberson and Bur-
rus. "With seven different people
and seven different stories, what
can I do?"
For example, Roberson tes-
tified that Burrus suggested he tap
the phone of ECU telecommuni-
cations employee Brooks Mills'
phone. Burrus denied suggesting
that Roberson place the tap.
Stan Kittrell, the Public
Safety captain who informed the
FBI of the wiretapping, said ECU
Public Safety Capt. Ernest Suggs
told him knowledge of the wire-
tapping went as high as Vice Chan-
cellor for Business Affairs Richard
Brown and possibly Chancellor
Richard Eakin. Brown testified that
he aware of the wiretapping, and
Eakin was not called to testify.
Both Burrus and Suggs testi-
fied mat Public Safety Director
James DePuy ordered the tap on
the phone of Public Safety secre-
tary Patricia Hair Bullock. How-
ever, Burrus and Suggs did not
mention any involvement by
DePuy before the trial, and DePuy
denied ordering the tap.
Folmar said he doubted the
credibility of witnesses who
change their testimony and said,
even if the witnesses were telling
the truth on the witness stand, he
would have trouble pursuing any
further legal action.
"If you get people tellingdif-
ferent stories on the witness stand
than they told the FBI or the grand
jury, you cannot use that type of
testimony against people Folmar
said. "Their testimony would
never hold up in cross-examina-
tion
Folmar said he may have
handled the case differently if the
statements made by witnesses
would have came out before the
trial.
"Before the trial, nobody was
really putting the blame on
DePuyFolmarsaidIfIwould
have known different things, I may
have indicted different people
Burrus and Roberson still
face a $350,000 civil suit filed
by Bullock. However, the State
Attorney General's Office,
which handled the civil claims
brought against the university
and its employees before the
trial, is no longer representing
the defendants.
Tom Ziko, assistant state at-
torney general, refused to com-
ment on why the state will no
longer represent the defendants.

On Oct. 16, the Board of

implement a new campus-wide

will expand voice, data and video

revenues being derived from a
combination of user cha rges, com-
missions, existing and future stu-

other sources as appropriate.
The project will be financed
through the sale of 10-year bonds
or other similar forms of financ-

Chancellor Richard Eakin
said the network would put ECU
at the forefront of telecommunica-
tions.
"As we move into this tech-
nology, those of you that teach, be
prepared to change the way you
teach he said.
The earliest the network
could be operational is March of
1995.
The board also passed a pro-
posal to recommend that the UNC
Board of Governors reorganize the
Department of Health, Physical
Education, Recreation and Safety.
The department's status will
change to the School of Health
and Human Performance. The
school will consist of three depart-
ments; the Department of Physi-
cal Education, the Department of
Health Education and the Depart-
ment of Leisure Systems Studies.
In a memorandum from
Marlene Springer, vice chancellor
for academic affairs, it was recog-
nized mat "current funding for
the department is sufficient to sup-
port the transition to school status

Trustee William Baggett said
negotiations are currently taking
place between ECU School of
Medicine and Pitt County Memo-
rial Hospital to re-establish con-
nections between the two units.

to ECU School of Medicine are up
about 53 percent. Nationwide
medical school applicationsareup

Republican supporters
gathered in Rocky Mount on
Oct. 16 to cheer the arrival of
Vice President Dan Quayle.
Speaking to a crowd of
about 1,000, Lt. Gov. Jim
Gardner introduced Quayle as
the man "who made Al Gore
sweat" in the vice presidential
debate.
Quayle started his speech
with some crowd-stirring ques-
tions, like "Is Rocky Mount go-
ing to vote for George Bush?"
and "North Carolina going to
vote for George Bush?"
He then went on to stress
the need for a new Congress
that would be Republican-
based.
"We need to have a new
Congress � and let's clean
house Quayle said.
Quayle discussed Bush's
plan if he is re-elected and its
effects on possible new taxes.
"The President and the
American people want to hold
the line on taxes Quayle said.
"They don't want to increase
taxes
Quayle also discussed
Clinton's plan for future educa-
tion and health care.
"Bill Clinton has chosen
sides on the education battle
Quayle said. "He's on the side of
the education bureaucracy. The
President and the American
people want the parents to choose
where their kids go to school.
"Under Clinton's pro-
gram, we will have rationing of
health care. We will have to wait
in line to see the doctor, unless
you have emergency care.
"George Bush and the
American people want to make
sure every American has made
available to them affordable
health insurance
Quayle then reminded the
crowd of the last time there was
a Democratic Congress and a
Democratic president.
"Remember 21 percent in-
terest rates? Remember inflation
at 13 percent? Remember lines at
the gas station? Remember the
grain embargo? If you elect Bill
Clinton, you will only make mat-
ters much, much worse
Quayle continued his
speech by addressing the charac-
ter issue that has been brought
up repeatedly in this campaign.
"Character is an issue in
this campaign Quayle said.
"We want a president who has
the integrity, the toughness and
the experience to make the right
decisions for the American
people
Quayle maintained thathe
disagreed with Clinton's state-
ment that "America was the
mockery of the world
"America is not the mock-
ery of the world Quayle said.
"America is the greatest coun-
try in the world America might
become the mockery of the
world if we elect Bill Clinton
Quayle wrapped up his 15-
minute speech by tying all of his
various points into a umbrella
of "traditional valuer in
America
"You strengthen the fam-
ily by empowering people, not
empowering the government.
So we're going to continue to
speak up�and speak out�on
traditional values and support
the American family
After Rocky Mount,
Quayle continued on his "Vic-
tory II" tour with stops in Wil-
son and Fayetteville.

Brooke Driskill, representing Kappa Sigma, was crowned the
1992-93 Homecoming Queen during Saturday's football game.
With a fond hello and wel-
come, master of ceremony Kindra
Kurtis officially began the 1992
ECU Homecoming and the start
of Pirate Fest '92.
With about 200 students,
family and friends roaming the
mall, the event was well under-
way. There were floats, bands,
dancers and, of course, the ECU
Pirate.
According to Jay Marshall,
assistant director of University
Unions, the event was considered
a huge success.
"By far, the best crowd that
we've ever seen Marshall said.
"This year the students and the
community contributed greatly to
the success of this year's home-
coming fest
The ECU Cheerleaders en-
tertained the crowd with their
cheers, flips and aerobatical spins
and catches. Just when the crowd
thought that the fun was over, the
nationally-ranked ECU Pure Gold
dancers took the stage and thrilled
the crowd with their award-win-
ning dance and step show.
"I like this a lot better than
last year Jenny Lindennen said.
"It's easier for the floats to get
around and for the people to re-
view them verses last year
With many attractions to Pi-
rate Fest '92, the Locked Treasure
Chest, ECU Gospel Choir and the
Homecoming Court seemed to
have caught the eyes and ears of
the spectators.

University breaks ground
for new dinning hall
By Tracy Ford
Staff Writer
A $5.4 million addition to
ECU dining services broke ground
Oct. 15.
Todd Dining Hall, named for
Dr. and Mrs. Richard C. Todd, will
be located just north of Tyler Resi-
dence Hall.
The 35,400 square foot facil-
ity, which was approved in early
March 1990 and will be completed
in Feb. 1994, will double the size of
Jones Dining Hall.
"This is going to be a won-
derful new addition to this cam-
pus said Chancellor Richard
Eakin. "The building is wonderful,
it's important and the students will
enjoy it
According to Dr. Al
Matthews, vice chancellor of Stu-
dent Life, to develop a comprehen-
sive food serv ice program required
a renovation of existing facilities
and the construction of two new
dining facilities.
"The end effect that we will
see in the Spring of 1994 will be
state of the art functionally and
architecturally Matthews said.
"The food service committee vis-
ited over 25 universities as close as
Duke and Chapel Hill and as far
away as Baylor and South West
Texas and Georgetown and the Uni-
versity of Florida
Todd,a retired member of the
ECU department of history, has
sponsored many scholarships for
ECU students and remained an ac-
tive part in uV university and com-
munity.
"This is the first major build-
ing that a faculty was named before
it's completion Todd said. "(My
wife) and 1 are very grateful
The facility will seat 800,625
in main dining area and 125 in pri-
vate dining and will add much-
needed spacetothedining facilities
on campus.
"Thisdininghall will not only
servecollegehill residence, butalso
attract other on- and off-campus
students said Brad Osbourne,
ECU Dining Service Committee. "I
always knew one day ECU would
have a top dining service in the
country. Today we are one step
closer to that goal

satetv on Halloween
ifety
By Warren Sumner
Staff Writer
In a meeting Monday with
student government representa-
tives, the Greenville Chief of Police
said his primary concern on Hal-
loween was the safety of everyone
involved in the celebration.
"1 don't want people to come
downtown and become victims
said GreenvillePoliceChief Charles
Hinman. "We want to promote a
normal Saturday night in Green-
ville Hinman did say, however,
that some changes would be made
to improve the safety standards of
past Halloween celebrations.
Police will not relax liquor
regulations this year, like in past
celebrations. As on any other Sat-
urday night in Greenville, no alco-
hol will beallowed on the streets. In
addition to this regulation, the
Downtown Association of Restau-
rants and Taverns (DART), has
agreed that no mixed beverages
will be sold in glasses, and no beer
or wine will be sold in bottles dur-
ing the Thursday and Friday be-
fore, or or. the Saturday night of
Halloween.
DART also agreed to sus-
pend advertisement of live enter-
tainment and drink specials the
week of the celebration. Hinman
said he believes that this year's class
of students seems more sympa-
thetic to his department's efforts.
"The atmosphere seems dif-
ferent he said. "This year there
seems to be a desire to have a safe
Halloween
Hinman, aware of trouble
from local military servicemen in
years past, has enlisted the help of
military police officers to help con-
trol any potential problems they
may cause.
Hinman said the police de-
partment has also circulated letters
to local high schools encouraging
mem to be "part of the solution, not
part of the problem
The ECU Student Unions are
also offering an alternative to the
downtown scene by sponsoring
"Midnight Madness a celebration
held at Mendenhall student center
from 9 p.m. � 4 a.m. This univer-
sity-sponsored party will include
the showing of three horror films,
refreshments, a breakfast at 1 a.m.
and liveentertainment,all provided
free of charge.
Joel Mauney, vice-president
of the inter-fraternity council, re-
calls the mayhem in 1988 that re-
sulted in the suspension of the cel-
ebration. Mauney said he believes
ECU students should actively par-
ticipate in keeping peace this year.
"I was here in '88 and wit-
nessed fights and violence he said.
"It simply was not fun. It is best to
go with the mind-set that you don't
have to fight and throw bottles to
have a good time

hi Defense of a little Virginity
Thefederal
government has
spent almost
$3 billion of our
taxes since 1970
topromote
contraceptives and
"safe sex" among
our teenagers. Isn
it time we ashed,
What have we
gottenor
our money?
These are the facts:
�The federal Centers for Disease
Control estimate that there are now 1
million cases of HTV infection
nationwide
� 1 in 100 students coming to the
University of Texas health center now
carries the deadly virus.2
� The rate of heterosexual HTV
transmission has increased 44 since
September 1989.3
� Sexually transmitted diseases
(STDs) infect 3 million teenagers
annually.4
� 63 of all STD cases occur among
persons less than 25 years of age.5
� 1 million new cases of pelvic
inflammatory disease occur annually.6
� 1.3 million new cases of gonorrhea
occur annually7, strains of gonorrhea
have developed that are resistant to
penicillin.
� Syphilis is at a 40-year high, with
134,000 new infections peryear.8
� 500,000 new cases of herpes occur
annually9; it is estimated that 16.4 of
6k U.S. population ages 15-74 is
infected, totaling more than 25 million
Americans � among certain groups, the
infection rate is as high as 600
� 4 million cases of chlamvdia occur
annually 10-30 of 15- tol9-year-
olds are infected2
� There are now 24 million cases of
human papilloma virus (HPV), with a
higher prevalence among teens3
To date, over 20 different and
dangerous sexually transmitted diseases
are rampant among the young. Add to
that the problems associated with
promiscuous behavior infertility,
abortions and infected newboms. The
cost of this epidemic is staggering, both
in human suffering and in expense to
society; yet epidemiologists tell us
we've only seen the beginning.
Incredibly, the "safe-sex"gurus and
condom promoters who got us into this
mess are still determining our policy
regarding adolescent sexuality. Their
ideas have faded, and it is time to rethink
their bankrupt policies.
How long has it been since you've
heard anyone tell teenagers why it is to
their advantage to remain virgins until
married? The facts are being withheld
from them, with tragic consequences.
Unless we come to terms with the
sickness that stalks a generation of
Americans, teen promiscuity will
continue, and millions of kids
thinking they are protected will
suffer for the rest of their lives. Many
will die of AIDS.
There is only one safe way to remain
healthy in the midst of a sexual
revolution. It is to abstain from
intercourse until marriage, and then wed
and be faithful to an uninfected partner.
It is a concept that was widely endorsed
in society until the 1960s. Since then, a
"better idea" has come ilong one
that now threatens the entire human
family.
Inevitable questions are raised
whenever abstinence is proposed. It's
time we gave some clear answers:
Data Sou. ees:
message from Focus on ihe Family
I00
Why, apart from moral
considerations, do you think
teenagers should be taught to
abstain from sex until marriage?
No other approach to the epidemic of
sexually transmitted diseases will work.
The so-called "safe-sex" solution is a
disaster in the making. Condoms can fail
at least 15.7 percent of the time annually
in preventing pregnancy.14 They fail
36.3 percent of the time annually in
preventing pregnancy among young,
unmarried minority women.15 In a study
of homosexual men. the British Medical
Journal reported the failure rate due to
slippage and breakage to be 26 percent '6
Given these findings, it is obvious why
we have a word for people who rely
on condoms as a means of birth
control. We call them .
"parents
Remembering that
a woman can
conceive only one or
two days per month,
we can only guess
how high the failure
rate for condoms
must be in preventing
disease, which can be
transmitted 365 days
peryear! If the
devices are not used
properly, or if they slip
just once, viruses and
bacteria are exchanged
and the disease process begins. One
mistake after 500 "protected" episodes is
all it takes to contract a sexually
transmitted disease. The damage is done
in a single moment when rational
thought is overridden by passion.
Those who would depend on so
insecure a method must use it properly
on every occasion, and even then a high
failure rate is brought about by factors
beyond their control. The young victim
who is told by his elders that this little
latex device is "safe" may not know he
is risking lifelong pain and even death
for so brief a window of pleasure. What
a burden to place on an immature mind
and body!
Then we must recognize that there
are other differences between pregnancy
prevention and disease prevention. HTV
is l25th the width of sperm and can
pass easily through even the smallest
gaps in condoms. Researchers studying
surgical gloves made out of latex, the
same material in condoms, found
"channels of 5 microns that penetrated
the entire thickness of the glove18
HTV measures .1 microns9Given these
findings, what rational, informed person
would trust his or her very life to such
flimsy armor?
This surely explains why not one of
800 sexologists at a conference a few
years ago raised a hand when asked if
they would trust a thin rubber sheath to
protect them during intercourse with a
known HTV-infected person.20 Who
could blame them? They're not crazy,
after all. And yet they're perfectly
willing to tell our kids that "safe sex" is
within reach and that they can sleep
around with impunity.
There is only one way to protect
ourselves from the deadly diseases that
lie in wait. It is abstinence before
marriage, then marriage and mutual
fidelity for life to an uninfected partner.
Anything less is potentially suicidal.
That position is simply NOT
realistic today. It's an unworkable
solution: Kids will NOT
implement it
Some will. Some won't. It's still the
only answer. But let's talk about an
"unworkable solution" of the first order.
Since 1970, the federal government has
spent nearly $3 billion to promote
contraception and "safe sex This year
alone, 450 million of your tax dollars
will go down that drain!21 (Compared
with less than $8 million for abstinence
programs, which Sen. Teddy Kennedy
and company have sought repeatedly to
eliminate altogether.) Isn't it time we ask
what we've gotten for our money? After
22 years and nearly S3 billion, some 58
percent of teenage girls under 18 still did
not use contraception during their first
intercourse.22 Furthermore, teenagers
tend to keep having unprotected
intercourse for a full year, on average,
before starting any kind of
contraception.23 That is the success ratio
of the experts who call abstinence
"unrealistic" and "unworkable
Even if we spent another $50 billion
to promote condom usage, most
teenagers would still not use them
consistently and properly. The nature of
human beings and the passion of the act
simply do not lend themselves to a
disciplined response in young romantics.
But if you knew a teenager was
going to have intercourse,
wouldn't you teach him or her
about proper condom usage?
No, because that approach has an
unintended consequence. The process of
recommending condom usage to
teenagers inevitably conveys five
dangerous ideas: (1) that "safe
sex" is achievable; (2) that
everybody is doing it; (3) that
responsible adults expect them
to do it; (4) that it's a good
thing; and (5) that their peers
know they know these
things, breeding
promiscuity. Those are
very destructive
messages to give
our kids.
Furthermore,
Planned
Parenthood's
own data show
that the number
one reason teenagers engage in
intercourse is peer pressure!24 Therefore,
anything we do to imply that "every-
body is doing it" results in more not
fewer people who give the game a
try. Condom distribution programs do
not reduce the number of kids exposed
to disease they radically increase it!
Want proof of that fact? Since the
federal government began its major
contraception program in 1970, unwed
pregnancies have increased 87 percent
among 15- to 19-year-olds.25 Likewise,
abortions among teens rose 67 percent;2
unwed births went up 61 percent.27 And
venereal disease has infected a
generation of young people. Nice job,
sex counselors. Good thinking, senators
and congressmen. Nice nap, America.
Having made a blunder that
now threatens the human
family, one would think the
designers would be
backtracking and apologizing
for their miscalculations.
Instead, they continue to
lobby Congress and
corporate America for more
money. Given the
misinformation extant on
this subject, they'll
probably get it
But if you were
a parent and knew that
your son or daughter
was having sex, wouldn't
you rather he or she used a
condom?
How much risk is acceptable when
you're talking about your teenager's life?
One study of married couples in which
one partner was infected with HTV found
( that 17 of the partners using condoms
for protection still caught the virus within
a year and a half.28 Telling our teens to
"reduce their risk" to one in six (17) is
not much better than advocating Russian
roulette. Both are fatal, eventually. The
difference is that with a gun, death is
quicker. Suppose your son or daughter
were joining an 18-month skydiving club
of six members. If you knew that one of
their parachutes would definitely fail,
would you recommend that they simply
buckle the chutes tighter? Certainlv not.
You would say, "Please don't jump.
Your life is at stake How could a
loving parent do less?
Kids won't listen to the
abstinence message. You're just
wasting your breath to try to
sell them a notion like that
It is a popular myth that teenagers
are incapable of understanding that it
is in their best interest to save
themselves until marriage. Almost
65 percent of all high school females
under 18 are virgins.29
A few years ago in Lexington, Ky a
youth event was held that featured no
sports contest no rock groups�just an
ex-convict named Harold Morris talking
about abstinence, among other subjects.
The coliseum seated 18,000 people, but
26,000 teenagers showed up!
Eventually, more than 2,000 stood
outside the packed auditorium and
listened over a hastily prepared
public address system. Who
says kids won't listen to this
time-honored message?
Even teens who have
been sexually active can
choose to stop. This is often
called "secondary virginity
a good concept that conveys
the idea that kids can start
over. One young girl recently
wrote Ann Landers to say
she wished she had kept
her virginity, signing the affcf
letter, "Sorry I didn't and ji
wish I could take it back As
responsible adults we need to tell
her that even though she can't go
back, she can go forward. She can
regain her self-respect and protect her
health, because it's never too late to start
saying "no" to premarital sex.
Even though the safe-sex
advocates predominate in
educational circles, are there no
positive examples of abstinence-
based programs for kids?
Thankfully, some excellent programs
have been developed. Spokane-based
Teen-Aid and Chicago's Southwest
Parents Committee are good examples.
So are Next Generation in Maryland,
Choices in California and Respect Inc. in
Illinois. Other curricula such as Facing
Reality; Sex Respect; Me, My World My
Future; Reasonable Reasons to Wait;
Sex Love & Choices; FA.C.T.S. etc
are all abstinence-themed programs to
help kids make good sexual decisions.
A good curriculum for inner-city
youth is Elayne Bennett's Best Friends
Program This successful "mentoring"
project helps adolescents in Washington,
DC. graduate from high school and
remain abstinent In five years, not one
female has become pregnant while in the
Best Friends Program
Establishing and nurturing
abstinence ideas with kids,
however, can be like spitting
into the wind. Not because
they won't listen, because
most will. But pro-
abstinence
messages are
drowned out in
a sea of toxic
teen-sex-is-
inevitable-use-a-
condom
propaganda from
safe-sex"
professionals.
You place major
responsibility on those who
have told adolescents that sexual
expression is their right as long as
they do it "properly Who else has
contributed to the epidemic?
The entertainment industry must
certainly share the blame, including
television producers. It is interesting in
i this context that all four networks and
the cable television entities are wringing
their hands about this terrible epidemic
of AIDS. They profess to be very
concerned about those who are infected
with sexually transmitted diseases, and
perhaps they are sincere. However, TV
executives and movie moguls have
contributed mightily to the existence of
this plague. For decades, they have
depicted teens and young adults
climbing in and out of each other's beds
like so many sexual robots. Only the
nerds were shown to be chaste, and they
were too stupid or ugly to find partners
S
Of course, the beautiful young actors
in those steamy dramas never faced any
consequences for their sexual
indulgence. No one ever came down
with herpes, or syphilis, or chlamydia, or
pelvic inflammatory disease, or
infertility, or ADDS, or genital warts, or
cervical cancer. No patients were ever
told by a physician that there was no
cure for their disease or that they
would have to deal with the pain
for the rest of their lives. No
one ever heard that genital
cancers associated with the
human papilloma virus
(HPV) kill more women than
AIDS,30 or that strains of
gonorrhea are now resistant to
penicillin.31
No, there was no
downside. It all looked
like so much
fun. But what a
price we are
paying now for
lies we have been
The government has also
contributed to mis crisis and
continues to exacerbate the problem. For
example, a current brochure from the
federal Centers for Disease Control and
the City of New York is entitled, 'Teens
Have the Right" and is apparently
intended to free adolescents from adult
authority. Inside are the six declarations
mat make up a 'Teenager's Bill of
Rights as follows:
� I have the right to think for myself.
� I have the right to decide whether to
have sex and whom to have it with.
� I have the right to use protection
when I have sex.
� I have the right to buy and use
condoms.
� I have the right to express myself.
� I have the right to ask for help if I
need it
Under this final item (the right to ask
for help) is a list of organizations and
phone numbers that readers are
encouraged to call. The philosophy that
governs several of the organizations
reflects the homosexual agenda, which
includes recruitment of the young and
vigorous promotion of a teen's right to
sexual expression.
Your tax dollars at work!
Surely there are other Americans
who recognize the danger now
threatening a generation of our best and
brightest. It is time to speak up for an
old-fashioned value called virginity.
Now, more than ever, virtue is a
necessity.
If you agree with Focus on the
Family that it is time for a new approach
to adolescent sexuality, tear out this ad
and save it. Take it to your next school
board meeting. Send it to your
congressman or senator. Distribute
copies to the PTA. And by ail means,
share it with your teenagers. Begin to
promote abstinence before marriage as
the only healthy way to survive this

Days of 'I Believe
As sad as it may seem, the days of "I
believe" are over at ECU.
In their victory Saturday, the Pirate
football team alternately received boos and
cheers. Sophomore quarterback Michael
Anderson, who is platooned with senior
Sean McConnell, threw two interceptions
against the Cincinnati Bearcats. The fans,
and that term is used loosely, booed Ander-
son after his second turnover. But they
cheered his completed passes.
Quarterbacks were not the only players
to be booed by unfaithful fans. In the third
quarter Saturday, Cedric Van Buren fielded
a Bearcat kickoff that could have easily
bounced over his head. But it didn't. He
caught the ball while running, a skillful
play. Then Van Buren stepped out of bounds
before being hit.
He could have gone out of bounds to
avoid being hit, or he could have do so
because he didn't have control of the ball, as
it appeared. Either way his choice was wise.
Yet the Pirate "faithful" sitting in the stands
booed Van Buren for, apparently, the crime
of protecting the ball.
Jeff Blake, the Pirate's starting quarter-
back for the 1991 season, had his share of
interceptions. Pick-offs should be expected
in an offense dominated by passing, such as
ours. When Blake threw interceptions in
1991, the fans responded with sabre slashes
and "We believe" chants. Fans did not give
up on the team.
A VIEW FROM ABOVE
' dead and gone?
Now, in 1992, McConnell and Ander-
son are criticized for the (sorry, guys) turn-
overs they have made, except, of course,
when their aggressive passing nets points
on the scoreboard for the Pirates.
The team is cheered by fair-weather
fans when, with the help of the other, over-
looked offensive players, one of our quar-
terbacks engineers a touchdown.
The Ficklen cannon thunders, a cheer-
leader sprints across the end zone with a
huge ECU flag and suddenly those battered
students on the field in the football uni-
forms are our team. And we have just scored.
Keep in mind the fact that both Ander-
son and McConnell have little experience as
starting quarterbacks for ECU. McConnell,
now a senior, waited in the wings while
Blake started in 1991.
Anderson is a sophomore; he will be
our quarterback of the future. Head Coach
Steve Logan says Anderson's miscues stem
from overconfidence. Logan said after the
Cincinnati winonSaturday that Anderson's
skills are sharp. His touchdown-to-inter-
ception ratio is 1-to-l. But he will learn, and
that takes time.
Experience will mold Anderson's pass-
ing eye and arm. He will eventually leamto
read defenses better, and to make less-dan-
gerous passes. The will be a potent aerial
threat in 1993.
Logan believes in his football team. The
fickle fans in Ficklen should, too.

A SIDEWARDS GLANCE
By David J. Jones
Don't judge Columbus by today's standards
Clinton will win, tax upper class heavily
Well, it's 14 days until Nov.
3 and the great American general
election. Unless something dras-
tic occurs, like the American elec-
torate wising up, Arkansas Gov.
Bill Clinton will become the next
president of the United states.
That's Clinton, which starts with a
"c" and that rhymes with "t" and
mat stands for trouble. Yes, folks,
mere's trouble in River City. Un-
less, of course, you're a liberal.
Liberals are a quirky, enig-
matic group. They seem to harbor
an ambivalent, even antagonistic,
view of success in this country, of
"making it If you Are bom to
poverty you are immediately the
foster child of liberals everywhere,
placed on a pedestal, seen as a
child of a callous, uncaring
economy. "Feast your eyes on
mis they say, holding a poor waif
on high, "gaze upon the blighted
result of our diabolical, capitalis-
tic, free-market economy They
champion you to death.
So maybe 20- or 30-years
later that child beats the odds.
Hard work, perseverance and de-
termination paid off. You ascend
from the ramshackle tenements of
Poverty Place to a two-story home
in the suburbs, complete with a
two-car garage and a white picket
fence. In other words, that child
made it, and became financially
successful. No more going to bed
hungry; that child now makes
good money, maybe six figures a
year.
Then one day you turn on
the television and there is the grey-
haired (or is it black today?) image
of Bill Clinton in an unctuous dis-
course on his plan for the Ameri-
can economy. He says he is going
to increase taxes on couples who
gross $200,000 or more per year.
Thatadultchild'sheart skips
a beat. "So your plan calls for an
increase in taxes?" a reporter asks
Clinton. "Only on those dirty
scoundrels who earn $60,000 a year
while others can't even afford to
buy a third color television
Clinton replies, choking back a
sob. "It's time these folks paid their
fair share says, inflated with pride
for having struck a blow for the
impoverished and the downtrod-
den. I was once among the impov-
erished, the adult thinks aloud,
and the liberals loved me, told me
I was worth something, thatl could
make it in this country, gave me
money and encouragement to
strive to succeed. "Endeavor to
persevere they said. I dragged
myself up from those dank depths,
and what do they say of me now?
Am I applauded for my ef-
forts? No. Are my accomplish-
ments pointed to as examples of
how one can succeed in America?
No.
Now I am an enemy of the
state, a financially successful indi-
vidual to be taxed into oblivion.
Gee, you wonder, where's Ronald
Reagan when you need him?
See how the liberals work?
They want to keep you down be-
cause that's where you need them
the most. Theirs is a program de-
signed to destroy motivation and
increase dependency. I ask you,
where is the incentive to succeed
financially if you know that the
more you make the greater the
percentage of taxes will be stolen
from your earnings?
This goes back to a concept
much maligned and ill-defined by
liberals in general and the team
Clinton-Gore in particular. I'm
talking about trickle-down eco-
nomics,seenastheeviloftheeight-
ies. It's beautiful in its simplicity,
as evidenced by the great eco-
nomic growth seen in the America
from 1983 to 1989, during which
the poorest 20 percent of Ameri-
cans saw a 12 percent rise in in-
come.
Simply stated, supply-side
theory acknow ledges tha t jobs and
economic opportunity flow down-
ward from those that are prosper-
ous, not from the bottom up. Busi-
nesses that are not overburdened
by taxes and fe leral reserve regu-
lations expand and create more
wealth for everyone, not just the
rich upper class.
You must ask yourself, "If
not trickle-down, then what?" Jobs
and financial surplus are not cre-
ated from the bottom up, unless,
of course, money and other finan-
cial incentives are supplied by the
government. But where would this
money come from? You guessed
it�taxes. And that starts with "t"
and that rhymes with "c" and that
stands for Clinton.
Yep, there's going to be
trouble in River City if things don't
change soon. Bet on it.

Five hundred years ago on
Oct. 12, it happened. Two o'clock
in the morning on that day in 1492,
land came into view to the first of
Columbus' three ships, and the
world was forever changed.
Whether the change was good or
bad has yet to be determined.
I was listening to a radio talk
show Tuesday and the majority of
the people calling in were doing
so to express their disgust with
the fact that America celebrates
Columbus Day. The major thrust
of their argument was that Co-
lumbus committed very cruel
crimes, like cutting the hands off
of those people he had dubbed the
Indians, who did not bring enough
gold to please him.
Folks, no one is going to deny
that many of the acts that Colum-
buscommitted werecrimesbyany
standard of today' American soci-
ety. Neither will anyone (in pos-
session of half a brain) try to make
a successful case that Columbus
did more good than bad in his
actions.
What needs to be stated is
that you cannot judge a man who
did something over five hundred
years ago. Before you decide to
tune out, listen up. Columbus'
actions must be (not should be,
but must be) considered within
the context of the world and soci-
ety in which he lived.
Columbus lived in a world
that was much more harsh than
the current one we, as Americans,
enjoy. That goes without saying,
but he also lived in a society that
does not even compare with ours
today. Everything that Columbus
did was not only acceptable but
expected by the society of 15th
century Europe. Everyone that
was alive at that time in Europe
agreed with what he did.
It is a sad fact, that at this
point in history western and south-
ern Europe were in possession of
world power and believed that
anyone who was not like them
were somehow less than human
or at the very least heathen, but it
is a fact nonetheless.
This being the case, plus the
fact that the ancient law of "might
makes right" wasand is still pretty
much a constant in any society
that has ever existed, presents us
with the context in which Colum-
bus must be judged. As bad as it
sounds, Columbus would be ren-
dered a verdict of "not guilty
Let me say that I am not con-
doning any thing that Columbus
has done. I am saying that to judge
him by today's laws and standards
is not only stupid, but reprehen-
sible.
No matter what has since
happened it still seems that after
3,000 years of trying to form an
effective civilization, we just can't
seem to get it right. So far we have
yet to form a society that is totally
unbiased and looks at individuals
as people not as things.
The current racism issues in
our own "civilization" is just the
next chapter in a seemingly end-
less line of human relations prob-
lems.
We regard our founding fa-
thers as heroes of this land and
patriots in every meaning of the
word. The fact of the matter is that
most were rich, aristocratic, slave
owners or American Indian
slaughterers.
They were also guilty of com-
mitting treason against their coun-
trymen in Britain. The fact is that
they did not see killing Native
Americans as wrong. They did not
see the use of slaves as being
wrong. They did have brains
enough to notice it was going to be
a problem but even they didn't
know what to do about it. These
men are still our founding fathers
and without them, for good or
bad, we wou Id not ha ve this coun-
try that we have today. Do I still
think that many of the actions they
committed were horrible? Of
course I do, who wouldn't? But I
do not believe that these men are
to be judged by today's rules. They
must be seen as acting within the
society in which they lived. And
by those standards, they did noth-
ing incorrect, unethical, or illegal.
In Ancient Greece, the city
state of Sparta had institutional-
ized a measure that would make
us shudder today.
In Sparta it was expected
thata young boy was to bond with
an older man as part of the boy's
educational upbringing.
This bond, however, in-
cluded homosexual relations be-
tween man and boy.
In today's world the man
would be arrested, tried, found
guilty and put in jail with no hope
of release. Just because we see this
action as despicable, does not
mean we can say that people (I say
people because the bonding was
girl-to-woman also) of that time
were sick and twisted perverts.
Sparta's society was one of the
greatest there ever was in the an-
cient world.
These are just two examples
that I have given in the hopes that
you will see why we cannot judge
Columbus for what he did by
today's standards. The old saying
mat "wrong is wrong" or "a crime
is a crime" does not hold true, it's
all relative to when and where
something occurred.
We could make arguments,
judging past heroes by today's
standards, for the terminating of
every holiday in existence.
There is even a movement
under way right now to abolish
the concept of Thomas Jefferson
being one of the great leaders of
this country. Sure he was a rich
slave owner. It wasn't seen as
wrong by the people in power at
the time.
Does that diminish the fact
he was a brilliant politician and a
passionate statesman? No, of
course it doesn't. Note that I do
not justify slavery. I am simply
stating that when slavery existed,
it was accepted and was practiced.
Columbus changed the
world. For better or for worse, his
actions, directly or indirectly, af-
fected more men, women and chil-
dren man almost anyone else who
ever existed.
How the world was changed
by Columbus and what would
have happened if things were dif-
ferent could be debated into infin-
ity and it would do no good at all.
Columbus came, the world was
changed and we are the direct
descendants of that change.
Whether Columbus was a
good man by today's standards is
irrelevant.
That he was the individual
responsible for such massive
change is relevant. If you don't
want to respect the man at least
respect the event of his life that
made the world (whatever the
outcome) a very different place
indeed.

During the meeting, it was
announced that 97 percent of the

exam.
For the fall of 1993, Writing

Robert Thompson, chair of
the political science department,
said there are 1,070 more stu-
dents this fall than last spring, a
6.4 percent increase. He said the
increase can be attributed to re-
cruitment practices, enhanced
academic image, retention and
advising programs and Peach

Ray Charles entertains Minges crowd
By Warren Sumner
Staff Writer
It is easy to tell when you experience some-
thing truly unique. It gives you a feeling of awe,
that this is a rare event that must be cherished, for
it may never happen again.
Greenville music fansgota tasteof thatfeeling
Friday night when they witnessed a musical leg-
end perform in Minges Coliseum. Ray Charles, a
40-year mainstay in the music industry, brought a
spectacular show featuring his brand of soul, R&B,
country and gospel music to over 4,300 fans in
attendance.
The concert began with Charles' opening act,
the CVD ensemble. This Washington, D.C group,
featuring ECU music professor Carroll Dashiell,
entertained all ages in Charles' audience. The
ensemble's show was highlighted by the amazing
bass work of its leader, Dashiell, and the incredible
saxophone performance of ECU senior Will
Bridges, the only amateur musician performing at
the concert.
The group tore through a 40-minute set fea-
turing a wide variety of musical styles. Fellow
ECU professor Paul Tardif highlighted "Lightly
a Dashiell composition, with brilliant keyboard
work, as the ensemble played the jaz-tinged bal-
lad with intensity. Dashiell's thrilling bass solo
featured his infamous "lick" technique, (an event
that truly must be seen to understand) beginning
"Caronstan a combination of funk and jazz. This
tune, with its complex rhythms, featured percus-
sionist Mike Friend and drummer Adolph Wright
in a solo break.
After these instrumental offerings, vocalist
Aisha Johnson took the stage and fronted the
ensemble on a rousing version of "Shuffle Blues"
that got the crowd clapping. After a gorgeous
rendition of "You Are So Beautiful the ensemble
finished their show with a cover of the 70s hit
"Sunny" and exited to the tumultuous applause of
the audience. The completion of this performance
brought on Ray Charles' "supporting cast the
Ray Charles orchestra.
ECU Playhouse
This massive gathering of musicians
started the show in big band style, with each
member of the orchestra getting the opportu-
nity to provide a solo in the opening two
songs. After finishing mis introduction, the
band began to prepare for the emergence of
their leader, and the night's main attraction,
Ray Charles. Clad in a tan tuxedo suitand his
trademark glasses, Charles was lead onto the
stage to the deafening approval of the fans.
As he stood smiling before the fans' ap-
plause,itbecamequiteapparentthatCharles
was about to give them a show they would
always remember.
Plagued by acoustic problems during
the first number, the sound crew rebounded
on "I'm Busted Charles' second offering.
Charles sat in front of his massive orchestra,
surprisingly playing a synthesizer instead of
an expected grand piano. Despite this evi-
denceof modernization, it was apparent that
the show would still be classic Ray Charles,
especially as the performer began his next
number, "Georgia On My Mind
This number, the third in Charles' reper-
toire, was the highlight of the evening, as it
was the most emotional song Charles per-
formed. In his rhythmic swaying and rough-
but-smooth vocalization, Charles lulled the
crowd and brought tears to many eyes with
the sincerity of his performance. Unlike the
pop croonings of Michael Bolton, this was a
rendition of "Georgia" as it was meant to be
performed. Charles brought each note he
sang from his soul, touching everyone in the
coliseum.
Every note was raw, dirty and beautiful.
It was a rendition that will stay with all who
heard it for the rest of their lives.
After a deafening eruption from the
crowd, Charles began showcasing his sense
of humor, intentionally playing and singing
off-key in a "search" for the first note of
"Some Enchanted Evening Reworking the
popular ballad into a driving swing beat,
Charles and his orchestra picked up the
tempo of the show from the peaceful and sad
lull of "Georgia After the performances of
his classics "You Made Me Love You" and
"I'm a Stranger the audience was provided
with another point of excitement, the en-
trance of "the Raelettes
These five ladies, visions of sex and
sophistication, swayed the crowd with their
harmonizations on "Guess Who I Saw To-
day a story of a lover caught in an infidelical
relationship. The Raelettes, in the next num-
ber, "Hit the Road Jack represented the
jilted woman, unmercifully warding off
Charles' pleadings. The interplay between
Charles and the Raelettes created a show
unto itself, providing Charles a chance to
further exploit his humor. Charles, as he
faced this rejection, warned his backup sing-
ers not to repeat the title of the song, but the
unrelenting ladies still told him "don't ya
come back no more
Next up on the list was Charles' country
hit'TCan'tStop Loving Youafavoritewith
the older fans in attendance. This beautiful
rendition was followed by the lastnumber of
theevening, "Baby What'd I Say This song,
an exploitation of female infidelity, was
spiced with Charles' recanting of being with
a lover and hearing her revealing her infidel-
ity in her sleep. "I heard you say 'Oh Johnny
when you know my name is Ray
As quickly as the show began, it was
over with Charles exiting to a standing ova-
tion. Many Greenville dignitaries were im-
pressed with Charles and the staging of the
show.
Chancellor Richard Ea kin was one such
fan in attendance.
"These people saw and heard an institu-
tion tonight Eakin said. "Ray Charles is one
of a kind
Mostwho witnessed this incrediblecon-
cert would be inclined to agree with Chan-
cellor Eakin.

Thorton Wilder once again pro-

Wilder gives the audience the
story of the Antrobus family, shown
as "typical" Americans, and their
lives through an Ice Age, a biblical
flood and Armageddon.
Throwing a dinosaur and a
wooly mammoth in for good mea-

throughout history.
The first and second acts are
loaded with religious references and
chronological non sequiturs.
Mr. Antrobus, played by Tom
Spivey, comes home from a hard day
of work on the alphabet and the mul-
tiplication tables.
His son, Henry, was known be-
fore as Cain and allusions are made
to Adam, Eve and the ceiling of the
Si stine Chapel.
These and other events combine
to create a dual atmosphere of time-
lessness and confusion, throwing the
audience back and forth from past to
future.
The highlight of the first act
comes when Judge Moses, played
by Kirk Wilson, asks Mrs. Antrobus
about her two sons.
The play makes a 180-degree
turn from comedy to tragedy at this
point. The lights dimmed, a spot-
light focused on Mrs. Antrobus,
played by Felecia Harrelson, and the
cast rendered a soulful "Lamb of
God" ballad. Harrelson touched the
audience's hearts with her tearful
cries of "Abel, Abel
Comedy reigned in the second
act, while the third brought the play
to an intellectual close.
The third act started out as co-
medic, with the fourth wall being
broken down in order to bring back-
stage members into the play. But
when these characters do show up,
they are serious and flawless in their
delivery.
This contradiction detracted
from the overall comedy of the play
and confused the audience with its
overwhelming dichotomy.

one could just look and browse or bar-
gain for some good comic books.
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
Billy Crystal's new movie, Mr.
Saturday Night,is a bittersweetstory
of an agingcomedian named Buddy
Young, Jr.
Crystal produced, directed and
co-wrote (with the two writers of
City Slickers) Mr. Saturday Night as
well as playing the title character.
As the film opens, Buddy is
introduced as "Mr.Saturday Night"
onatelevisionvaudevillestyleshow
which he hosts. Although not obvi-
ous at the time, the film begins with
the pinnacle of Young's career then
tells the story of how Buddy rose to
and fell from that point.
Buddy Young, Jr. does his rou-
tines like many '50s comedians: he
waits for a laugh after every one
liner he zings out. The trouble �
and the reason Buddy'scareernever
flourished � is that Buddy's caus-
tic wit borders on hostility.
He tells the audience: "I came
home to find my friend hugging
and kissing my wife. I said: 'Lenny,
I have to, but you. . Following
this joke, the camera focuses on
Buddy's wife backstage trying to
explain to theiryoung daughter that
it was just a joke. "But is it true,
Mommy?" the little girl asks with
obvious pain.
Buddy next tells a joke about
his daughter and the camera again
shows the distraught youngster.
The message from this opening
scene is clear � Buddy uses every-
one togetwhathe wants. The restof
the film accentuates this callous-
ness.
Time after time Buddy ignores
(or perhaps just does not realize)
how much he hurts people, espe-
cially those he loves. The most af-
fected person by Buddy's antics i?
his brother, David Paymer, who
manages Buddy's career. Buddy
blames his brother and some bad
breaks for a disappointing career.
Early in the film Buddy's
brother quits being his manager so
he can retire to Florida. Thedecision
is one he relishes. Yet he feels guilty
for deserting his brother, even
though it is obv ious that he no longer
cares for Buddy.
This sentimentalism is one of
the film's few flaws. Unfortunately
the fault is so glaring that it weakens
the overall effect of the story.
In one scene Buddy and his
brother get into a huge argument in
an alleyway after Buddy had lost a
part in a movie, fhe staging is so
overly dramatic that the emotions
expressed ring hollow � like two
kids fighting only because they
know their mother is watching.
The alley cene looks familiar,
likesomanyothersinthefilm.Many
recalled an earlier, better film about
show-business brothers called The
Fabulous Baker Boys.
Another film achingly reminis-
cent of Mr. Saturday Night is For the
Boys. The aging makeup in that
film wasso bad thatthevery thought
Crystal
of it made me wince while watch-
ing this new film.
Billy Crystal does a fine job in
this film but the script never lets
him fully develop Buddy's charac-
ter. In one lengthy scene Buddy
woos his would-be wife.
Because there have been hints
of Buddy's philandering through-
out the film, his immediate fascina-
tion with this girl strikes the viewer
as inconsistent. A deeper explora-
tion of Buddy's emotions would
have helped rectify this uncomfort-
able scene and perhaps brought the
audience to a fuller understanding
of Buddy Young, Jr.
Too many scenes are superfi-
cial, staged only to wring the
viewer's heart. Billy Crystal knows
how to work an audience better
than Buddy Young does.
These manipulations, though,
are obvious. Much like the birth of
the calf in City Slickers, too many
scenes are designed only to put the
movie "over the top" (to use Holly-
w o o d
p a r -
lance).
Their
major
purpose
is to give
the au-
dience a
quick
emo-
tional
high in-
stead of
a more
satisfy-
ing un-
d e r -
Stand- Pho,� c�urte�y Columbia Picture
ing of the characters, which, ironi-
cally, eventually leads to a bigger
emotional payoff.
Mr. Saturday Night is a fine
film that can be enjoyed by almost
anyone. The disappointing ma-
nipulations keepMr. SaturdayNight
from being an work of art.

SKIN
The Antrobus family stood out
through the entire play. Spivey, a
veteran Playhouse actor, gave an
expert performance as the symbol
for man's drive to achieve and
succeed. His outrageous facial fea-
tures and comic rolling of the eyes
lent just the right touch to bring
out the farce in his character.
Harrelson also gave an out-
standing performance as the
mother and wife of humanity.
Always looking out for the
survival of her family (and the
human race), Harrelson combats
with Spivey in the debate of intel-
lectualism over necessity.
A consistent and believable
actress, Harrelson dominated the
stage with her presence.
Kevin Spooner, playing the
son Henry (or Cain), embodied
man's darker side with talent on a
grand scale. His constant rebel-
continued from 7
lion against his father's pursuit of
knowledge served as a constant
reminder of man's urge to destroy
and kill.
The set, designed by student
Ma tthew Geneczko, overwhelmed
the senses and complemented the
actors perfectly on stage.
With Roman numerals float-
ing high on stage and numbers
rimming the bottom, the audience
could not focus on one point for
very long
Forced to assimilate every-
thing at once, the mass confusion
and bright colors combined to
parallel man's intricacies in life.
The only downfalls came in
trying to juxtapose comedy and
tragedy in the play. As the play
went along, it fell into a dark and
broody contemplation of life and
survival. For the first two acts, the
audience saw mankind's will to
live through comedy. But, in the
third act audience members were
hard pressed to see survival
through the scene.
If comedy had reigned
throughout the play, the theme of
mankind surviving (despite its
urge to destroy) would have been
seen more clearly. However, one
can see thissurvival even though it
is muddled with change and jux-
taposition.

Pirates run and shoot Bearcats of CU, 42-21
By Chas MitcrH
Assistant Sports Editor
Saturday, the Pirates of ECU played to
the cheers of a near capacity crowd in Fick-
len Stadium. In their 42-21 rout of the
Bearcats of Cincinnati it seemed the Bucs
were possessed.
"I think now that there's a focus taking
shape on what kind of football team we
have Head Coach Steve Logan said. "I
think that you can begin to appreciate the
worthiness of a winning football season be-
ing a goal for this East Carolina football
team
Despite the high score, the contest was
a lot closer than the numbers reflect. The
Bearcats held the high powered offense of
ECU to just seven first-half points. Whilethe
Pirate defense, lead by the one arm-bandits
Jerry Dillon and Tony Davis combined for
19 tackles and shut outCincinnati in the first
half.
"Beautiful, beautiful defenseCoach
Thurmond and the defensive coaches de-
serve this victoiy Logan said. "What we
did today more than anything was that we
scored on offense and came back on de-
fense and stopped them
And stop them they did, as the Pirate
defense yielded only one change of posses-
sion touchdown, verses the two ECU turn-
overs which were converted for scores.
Even though backup quarterback Michael
Anderson threw two key and timely inter-
ceptions in the third quarter, Logan still
insists that Anderson is the future.
"Michael doesn't make mistakes be-
cause of a lack of information or a lack of
ability, he makes mistakes because he's so
dag-gone confident and his confidence
gets him in trouble Logan said. "I've
seen him respond to adversity before and
he gave me a wink and went back out and
threw into the end zone
After the second interception of Ander-
son, the rare echoing of the boo birds could
be heard throughout Ficklen. With38 seconds
remaining in the third quarter with the score
noted up at 14, Anderson bounced back and
threw a 13-yard touchdown strike to Carlester
Crumpler to put the Pirates up 21-14.
Cincinnati managed to score again in
the opening minutes of the fourth quarter.
Bearcat quarterback Lance Harp answered
the Pirate challenge with a 32-yard pass to
Marlon Pearce to tie it all up at 21. Then ECU
went to work, using their version of the run
and shoot offense. The "Air Logan" show
had now taken on a new five receiver look.

the Pirates lit up the scoreboard for 14

attraction was the overall performance of

3rd straight
state finals
By Richard J. Hooton III
Staff Writer
On Friday, the East Carolina Rugby
team defeated North Carolina State,
24-5, to clench their third consecutive
trip to the state finals. The Pirates
started the match off slowly which
helped the Wolfpack score first with a
run up the middle. The point after was
not converted and State led, 5-0. The
remaining time in the first half was
controlled by each team's defense. With
30 seconds left East Carolina mounted
an attack that the Wolfpack could not
stop. The end result was a 15 meter
sprint by rookie winger Michael
Culligan for the Pirates first score of
the evening. Richard "Opie" Moss' kick
after wis dead center and the score at
halftime was 7-5.
The next score was from the two-
man lineout. Prop Bert Hewitt and lock
Bob "Homer" Thomas set up the play

By Chas Mitch I
Assistant Sports Editor
Eleven, count them, 11 records
broken during the annual Purple
Gold swim meet which was held
last Thursday. The Pirate swim-
mers,accordingto Head Coach Rick
Kobe, have shown outstanding
progress toward their team goal.
"Our goal this year is for the
men to finish either one or two in
the conference, and to have our
women finish no lower than fou rth
in the CAA Kobe said. "After
today's results, I feel even more
confident in reaching our goals
Derek Nelson, Beth Humphrey
and Jackie Schmieder all won mul-
tiple events and broke two record
each.
The men finished in a tie at 95-
95, while the Gold women's team
won by seven over Purple 94-87.
The women's match came down to
the last event, the 400 Freestyle Re-
lay. Meg Lawton blistered a 56.16

tack. Amy Schmidt, Tracv Garrett

Soccer team sings

The song is getting old, but the

CAA loss for the Pirates, who are
now 2-9 overall, 0-4 in the confer-
ence.
The band started warming up
early as Madison's Ivan Simpson
beat ECU goalkeeper Brvan
DeWeese in the penalty box, 19:47
into the match. JMU's David
Villareal came in off the bench and
scored theteam's second goal when
he drilled a rebounding ball into
the back of the Pirate net 39 min-
utes into the half.
Down 2-0 after the first half,
the Pirates still had a chance of
pulling out ,i win, oi at least a tie.
The chance seemed to evaporate
after the first five minutes i t the
second half, when MU's Kaario
Kinkunen scored the team'
goal on a shot from 25 yard � out.
Down three scores and with only 41
minutes remaining, East Carolina
would need an offensive miracle to
salvage a win. There were no heav-
enly trumpet blasts, no great floods
and no offense. ECU had only six
shots on the day and absorbed their
ninth loss of the season to the 17th-
ranked Dukes.
The Pirates return to action Oct
21 in a home match against defend
ing CAA champion Old Dominion.
The Monaahs have tiedl3th-ranked
George Mason, 1-1, and a week ear
tier beat 12th-ranked Boston Col
lege, 1-0. The match is scheduled for
a 3 p.m. start.

and fired the ball to Rich Hooton
going straight into the Wolf pack
defense; Hooton drove them
into the try zone and was
awarded the second score for
the evening. Moss' kick was
counted and the score stood 14-
5.
The Pirate wing shut down
the Wolfpack offense by hard
hitting and solid tackling. Moss
led the tackling by disregarding
his own body, making several
tackles at top speed. These high
speed collisions had a detrimen-
tal affect on the State wing. They
soon became very tentative; and
with McCain and Casey
Craig crashing into them, they
began to drop passes and make
costly mistakes. This gave scor-
ing opportunities to the Pirate
loose forwards: Chris Carmey,
jason Webb and Linwood
O'Brian. These three teamed up
with lock Jay Keller and hooker
jack Cote to control much of the
rucks as well as assisting
scrumhalf Ross Marshall's
passes to hit their mark with
precision.
The third score of the day was
a result of another lineout, this
time to Chris Carney who scam-
pered 20 meters to the try zone.
Moss' kick after was off the mark,
and the score was 19-5. East Caro-
lina continued to threaten with
several long runs by K.G. Moore.
Moore sparked the Pirates by carv-
ing up the Wol fpack defense like a
Thanksgiving turkey which led to
CulUgan's second try of the night, played first on Friday and set the Chris Patterson struck first by the season. The Pirates are in
