Congressman spends day on campus
By Karen Hassell
Striving to become acquainted with
the new areas of his district, U.S. Rep.
Martin Lancaster visited ECU on Wednes-
With about 60 percent of the 3rd
district new to Lancaster, this election
yearforced him to travel fmm Wilmington
to the Virginia border to reach his con-
Lancaster's latest campaign adver-
tisements accuse his opponent, GOP can-
didate Tommy Follard, of falling behind
$2,300 on his child support payments.
Lancaster responded to questions about
the negative advertisement against Pol-
"I've been in politics for 14 years,
and this is the first time we've ever run a
negative ad Lancaster said. "It was the
most difficult decision I've ever made.
We have been running positive television
now for five weeks.
"We did not want to use negative
television. But what we found was after
an unremitting negative attack or attacks
bv mv opponent that it was having an
effect. We simply were not going to take
the chance that the trend would continue
until election day"
Lancaster, who won his congres-
sional seat in 1986, grew up on a tobacco
farm, served in the Navy during the Viet-
nam war and spent eight years in the
Lancaster said that due to new areas
now included in the third district, com-
mercial fishing creates the largest adjust-
ment for him. Farming, military, educa-
tion, business and industry are all famil-
iar subjects. With only a few fishermen in
his old district, district three now holds
nearly all commercial fishermen in North
Redistricting added both ECU and
Elizabeth City State University to the 3rd
district. Lancaster said this was a differ-
ence in regards to the fact that he now has
two major universities, however, he has
always been concerned about education.
He said he supports an initiative
that former Gov. im Hunt headec
which would create a national certifi-
cation program for teachers.
"1 think you will seea federal role
in making that happen. This will give
teachers some professional credentials
similar to what doctors ha e. Teachers
would be board certified that shows
their true expertise
Lancaster said he sees 18-to-24-
year-olds as having the same concerns
as anv other age group, including edu-
cation, a strong economy, safety and
"Students perhaps more so than
older generations are interested in the
environment he said. 'My interests
and the interests of students dovetail.
I'm not certain that is the case with my
opponent. He has an incredible envi-
ronmental record. He owns a sewage
treatment plant in a subdivision that he
built that was in violation of pollution
standards 24 out of 36 months
Lancaster said he is working to
make scholarships and grants non-tax-
able income for students He said stu-
dents should not be taxed on the inter-
est drawn by college loans but, instead,
interest on college should be eligible
for tax deductions.
Lancaster said he was striving for
college loans to be provided regardless
of income level. If parents' income is
less than $70,000, students would be
eligible for subsidies on the interest. If
their parents make less than 642,(XX),
they would be entitled to a Pell I .rant.
Lancaster also addressed issues
of the presidential election issue.
"1 think 50 cents on the gallon isa

a year for the next five years. "1 think it

build up tl country's infrastructure
while discouraging the use of foreign

that would encourage dorrw

SGA tables resolution to boycott clubs I University, Greenville
� prepare for Halloween
By Elizabeth Shimmel
Assistant News Editor
A new SCA resolution is
causing campus controversy, de-
spite the fact that SGA has not yet
voted on it.
David Tyre, president of Al-
lied Blacks for Leadership Excel-
lence (ABLE), said the resolution
calls for the support of SGA in
solving the problem of racial dis-
crimination in downtown bars.
One way supporters of the
resolution hope to overcome the
problem is by promoting a cam-
pus-wide boycott of the down-
town bars on Halloween night.
However, the resolution was
tabled at theSG A meetingon Mon-
day and will not be brought up
again until the next SGA meeting
on Nov. 2.
The resolution was tabled to
give the ABLE student leaders
enough time to work out the de-
tails of the resolution.
Students who went to the
meeting to show their support
were disappointed that they did
not get a response to the ABLE
"Many of the minority stu-
dents came there expecting some
kind of answer to this dilemma
and were not given one Tyre
said. "Many of them wanted to
know if the SGA president was
willing to support and represent
the interests of all students

Alcohol drug of choice on college campuses
By Joe Horst
Alcohol is the drug of choice
on college campuses, and prob-
lem drinking is a major concern
with college students.
Surveys throughout the na-
tion have estimated that 75 per-
cent to 95 percent of college stu-
dents have drank during the past
year, compared to the estimated
65 percent in the general popula-
Campus statistics have also
revealed that alcohol is involved
in almost two-thirds of all violent
behavior and almost half of all
physical injuries. Alcohol alsocon-
tributes to roughly one-third of all
emotional difficulties and almost
30 percent of academic problems.
Of the total college popula-
tion, an estimated 20 percent are
identified as problem drinkers.
Problem drinkers are people who
consume five or more drinks in
one sitting at least once a week.
College students can gauge
their dependence on alcohol by
studying the four phases of drink-
ing by E.M. Jellinek, "The Father
� First or prealcoholic phase
� The person's drinking is so-
cially motivated and develops into

may occur during this phase.

Professor spends summer in Greenland
By Tammy Carter
An ECU biology professor
spent his summer in northeast
Greenland researching the food
chain in the Arctic Ocean.
Dr. William Ambrose Jr. re-
searched the food chain within a
polynya, an area of open water
that is surrounded by 100 percent
ice cover. During the summer
months, from early April until late
August, portions of the ice melt to
form a large body of water, or a
Polynyas occur in about the
same location each year and are
scattered throughout the Arctic.
Because they provide a means of
survival for the plant and animal
life within this frigid area, polyn-
yas have attracted the attention of
scientists all over the world.
Ambrose describes polynyas as
"hot spots of productivity
In late August and early Sep-
tember, the polynyas begin to
freeze over for the winter. Ac-
cording to Ambrose, it does not
really matter that the polynyas
are frozen during the winter
months because there is no sun-
light during this time. In summer
months, however, the sun shines
24 hours a day.
Polynyas have existed for so
long mat Eskimos once colonized
around these life-giving bodies of
Ambrose said he has been
fascinated by polynyas for a num-
ber of years and came up with
some interesting questions about
them. He said he heard about an
international effort being
launched to send researchers to
Greenland and began writing let-
ters to the proper officials. He was
invited to join a grou p of oceanog-
raphers that would be doing re-
search aboard the Polar Sea, a U.S.
Coast Guard ice breaker.
Ambrose was part of a team
of about32 scientists that included
principle investigators, graduate
students and technicians.
According to Ambrose, the
cruise left in mid-July and ended
five weeks later. Its mission was to
look at the polynya on the north-
east continental shelf of
Ambrose said there are two
important reasons that polynyas
are important. The first reason is
because they are models of global
warming. If global warming actu-
allv takes place as predicted, the
ice on the continental shelves of
the Arctic Ocean will melt.
"It is a chance to see what the
shelves will look like before the ice
melts Ambrose said.
The second reason Ambrose
said he finds the polynyas inter-
esting is because they may play
an important role in gas exchange
between the atmosphere and the
Water takes carbon dioxide
out of the atmosphere, and some
of the water comes from under the
polar ice caps and combines with
the water in the polynya. Scien-
tists are studying how this par-
ticular gas exchange could affect
the earth's atmosphere.
Ambrose, a biological ocean-
ographer and benthic ecologist,
said he was interested in studying
the organisms on the bottom of
the polynya and the animals that
feed on them.
He said when the ice melts
in May, the system opens up and
plant growth begins. It starts with
a small plant form called phyto-
plankton, which drifts to the bot-
tom of the polynya.
While a lot of the phyto-
plankton are consumed by animal
life called zooplankton, much of
them fall to the bottom. There the
phytoplankton are consumed by
organisms at the bottom of Ihe
The organisms are con-
sumed, in turn, by larger organ-
isms throughout the polynya.
Ambrose said he is also in-
terested in the distribution within
the polynya and the abundance of
the animals within the food chain.
He said he wants to see how the
distribution relates to the produc-
tivity of the water community and
the structure and function it plays.
Ambrose also wants to re-
search the carbon distribution.
Once carbon is taken out of the
atmosphere, how does it affect the
plant and animal life? How far
does it exist within the food chain?
Ambrose wants to help find the
answers to these questions.
"It's exhausting work
Ambrose said. "But you do it be-
cause you like the science
Scientists used a variety of
instruments to measure the atmo-
sphere, water currents, tempera-
ture of both the water and the
atmosphere and to collect samples
of organisms and their environ-
ments. The scientists will share
the data the collect to help other
scientists with their research.
Ambrose said the work only
begins with the research in
"It's exciting being on a big
ship Ambrose said. "But there
is more work to be done when you
get back home
In order to continue doing
research, Ambrose will continue
to study the samples he collected
and report his results. He said
this is where the hard work and
long hours come in.
"A lot of people don't real-
ize the hard work that goes into
the work back home he said.
The work Ambrose did over
the summer also carries over into
theclassroom. He said theprojects
he works on have a lot ot impact
on his classes. In turn, his classes
help generate future research
Ambrose said many people
think that research and teaching
are not compatible, but that is not
"I take my experiences and
what I learn out (in the Arctic)
back to the classroom Ambrose
A scientist or a teacher can-
not keep current in his field with-
out doing research in the field, he
said. It takes a lot of lab experience
and a lot of project experience.

Halloween comes back to Greenville
For the first time in three years, down-
town bars and restaurants will open their
doors this upcoming Halloween night.
In the past, Greenville has been widely
known � in and out of the state � as a
party school. Halloween night was the
prime example behind this image. High
school students would see it sometimes
on MTV and would base their decision to
come here on that party, all-the-fun-you-
When the city of Greenville closed the
downtown area in the school year of 1989-
90 because of violence, the party atmo-
sphere just moved to a different setting.
That year, students gathered at the Tar
River Apartments to continue this annual
Greenville Police officers showed up
with riot gear and tear-gas, arresting
roughly 150 people under charges such
as failure to disperse and public drunk-
For the next two years, Halloween
faded into the background, living under-
ground with very little attention or press
given to it. Now that the Downtown As-
sociation of Restaurants and Taverns
(DART) has decided to be open for the
Halloween season, talk has erupted once
again about the safety of students and
DART has agreed that there will be no
glass containers during Halloween week.

CAMgjjS SPECTRUM Courtesy the city of GreenvilleECUDart
Celebrate safely this Halloween
Halloween is a festive time.
Young children are excited about
their costumesand trick-or-treat-
ing. The university is looking
forward to its first nationally tele-
vised football game. Halloween
is fun. Unfortunately, some past
Halloweens in Greenville have
not been fun. Parrying led to vio-
lence. The Greenville Police De-
partment has an obligation to
insure that everyone in the com-
munity is safe. The university
has an obligation to insure ev-
eryone on campus is safe. We
also have an obligation to avoid
disruption of the community, to
include downtown Greenville.
The past three years have been
peaceful. Our sincere hope is mat
this year will be the same.
The primary concern is the
safety of everyone. Halloween
is a normal day downtown. The
bars will be open and 1 iquor laws
will be enforce the same as nor-
mal . The streets will be open and
traffic will be flowing as normal.
Consumption of alcohol on the
streets and sidewalks will be pro-
hibited as normal. There are no
special exemptions from the law
because it is Halloween. TheGre-
enville Police Department and
supporting agencies w ill enforce
the law as normal. But as is nor-
mal, the law will be enforced
with common sense.
Normalcy: Oct. 31st will be a
normal Saturday night in Gre-
enville. The crowd may be larger,
but the rules are the same. The
streets are open. Traffic will be
flowing. Have fun, but be safe
and be careful.
Safety: Halloween is a time
of celebration. But celebrate
safely and with restraint. Safety
is of paramount concern. Drive
carefully because children will
be out in large numbers. Many
children may not see traffic and
dart across the street. Be careful.
Protect our children.
Young adults and adults
must also be protected on Hal-
loween. Driving under the influ-
ence will be an area of special
enforcement emphasis to pro-
tect everyone on the streets and
highways. Assaultive behavior
will be another area of special
enforcement emphasis to pro-
tect everyoneon the streets. Since
alcohol makes people vulnerable
as victims or causes others to be
out of control, enforcement of
alcohol laws will also be an area
of special enforcement empha-
sis. Drugs will also receive spe-
cial emphasis. All necessary ac-
tions to protect life and property
will be taken. The goal is to have
a safe and pleasant Halloween.
Responsibility: There must
be a balance between fun and
responsibility. The Greenville
Police Department, the City of
Greenville, East Carolina Uni-
versity,the Downtown Area Res-
taurant and Tavern owners as-
sociation, Student Government
and many other groups are
working closely together to de-
velop a climate ot cooperation to
insure a safe Halloween. The
Downtown bars are seeking re-
sponsibility from their patrons
in the consumption of alcohol.
The university is planning alter-
native activities on campus.
Good lines of communica-
tion have been established be-
tween students and the police.
Both are working together to
develop a spirit of pride and co-
operation. Everyone must use
common sense to insure a safe

end just like any other that might occur
Along with the downtown area, the
Mendenhall Student Center will keep its
doors open until 4 a.m. to hold various
activities designed to provide an alterna-
tive for students going downtown.
Movies, ranging from In Cold Blood to
Evil Dead, Part 2, will run from 8 p.m. to 2
a.m. and various bands will play through
the night. Other events, like "A Night at
the Races" and "Blizzard for Bucks will
be held at various locations inside Men-
denhall. Door-prizes, raffles and costume
contests will round out the night's festivi-
Organizations around campus are
majorly supporting this alternative Hal-
loween event. Campus Dining (ARA), Uni-
versity Housing, Student Health Services
and the Dean of Students office are just a
few of the groups devoting their time and
resources in order to promote the event.
The university is trying to provide some-
thing for the students � alcohol-free �
that will give them a good time without
the risks of going downtown.
The potential for danger and harm this
upcoming Halloween is great. With the
vast amount of people who go downtown
' regularly, coupled with the new students
who have heard all the outrageous stories
of past Halloweens, downtown will be a
potential powder keg ready to explode at
the slightest spark.
Moderation and common sense are the
two keys to surviving this upcoming Hal-
loween. Have a designated driver if you're
going out drinking, don't walk alone late
at night and have a good time without

a sizzling skillet in one hand and a

Housing renovates Garrett workout room
To the Editor:
Over the pastcoupleof years,
several articles have appeared in
The East Carolinian regardingour
residence hall fitness centers, but
not once has the Department of
University Housing been men-
tioned in these feature articles. I
feel obligated to give credit where
it is due regarding the renova-
tions the Garrett Hall fitness cen-
ter featured in your Oct. 15th edi-
tion. RHA is a worthy organiza-
tion, but had nothing to do with
the renovations to Garrett's Pipe-
line Pumphouse. The renovations
and new equipment purchases
for this facility were a joint ven-
ture of the Departments of Uni-
versity Housing and Recre-
ational Services, and reflect stu-
dent rent fees and activity fees at
University Housing made
the decision to invest over
$12,000 in physical renovation
costs, and split over $21,000 in
fitness equipment costs with Rec-
reational Services. The Univer-
sity Housing Maintenance Team
and student paint crew knocked
out walls, repaired and painted
the entire facility, while housing
staff coordinated the installation
of carpet and gym tile. The Rec-
reational Services staff provided
expertise and assistance with all
equipment purchases and instal-
lation. In addition to Garrett, the
Aycock Pipeline Pumphouse was
created and equipped last year
at a cost of $36,000 and there are
no plans to renovate this new
facility in the near future. Both
facilities are some of the finest
on campus, and both depart-
ments are very proud of the co-

SGA encourages safe Halloween this year
To the Editor:
The SGA hopes everyone is
having a terrific fall semester. Not
since 1988 have the students had
the privilege of attending the tra-
ditional Halloween party in down-
town Greenville. After a year of
meetings with city and university
officials, weareconvinced that Hal-
loween deserves another chance.
SGA, Panhellenic and 1FC rep-
resentatives have worked very
hard trying to show that the ECU
students are not the problem. The
city officials understand that most
of the problems in downtown Gre-
enville on Halloween night are
related to visitors such as Marines,
high school students and visiting
The message from the city and
the ECU student body is that we
want to work together � not
against each other. So far, this
message has been embraced and
as a result we have gotten our
Let's show the city that not
only are we not the problem, but
we are a part of the solution. All
that we have to do is keep things
under control. That doesn't mean

network ready by '95

On Oct. 16, the Board of
Trustees passed a $14 million pro-
posal for a new campus-wide tele-
communications network that
will expand world of communi-
cations on campus.
Director of Telecommunica-
tions Jim Crain said the new sys-
tem will solve ECU's current tele-

A recent tragic study con-
ducted by Crain showed that four
of 100 phone calls can now be
' completed on campus compared
to eight calls out of 100.
Crain said he hopes the new
sys tern wil 1 red u ce the n u mber o f
busy signals to one call out of 100.
Currently, four of 100 calls re-
ceive a busy signal, forcing the
caller to dial again.
"The problem with getting
busy signals when dialing in or
out is now cut in half Crain said.

the city. In 1988, violence plagued
the celebration, with numerous ar-
rests and injuries.
Analysis of videotapes and
arrest reports showed that many
offenders at the 1988 celebration
were not ECU students, but Green-
villeauthoritiesstill decided to sus-
pend the event. The following year,
nearly 150 arrests were made at Tar
River estates at a massive party.
Hopes of contin uing thedowntown
celebration were dimmed until a
peaceful 1991 holiday helped to re-
een back to downtown.
As the this year's holiday falls
onaweekend,down town merchants
began refusing the city's request to
close their businesses because of the
money they would loose. However,
DART members worked with the
city to make the holiday safe. The
partnership has brought optimism
about this year celebration.
While Knox is optimistic
about this year's celebration, he said
his department would be ready for
any situation that might arise.
"We'll hope for the best, and
prepare for the worst Knox said.
Knox said he agreed with
Hinman's decision to use military
police forces to help control the
downtown crowd. He said he felt
the forces could keep potential
troublemakers from local military
bases under control. The military
officers, along with a full contin-
gent of Greenville and ECU police,
have been instructed to treat the
celebration like any other Saturday
night in Greenville.
DART members have also
done their part to restore normalcy
to the downtown area. The mer-
chants have made resolutions to
keep glass bottles, a source of inju-
ries in the past, off the streets. All
beverages on Halloween will be
served in plastic cups.
DART members have also
suspended advertising for live en-
tertainmentand drink specials dur-
ing the week of the celebration and
will not allow downtown costume
parties or contests.
Asdefined by state liquor laws,
no alcoholic beverages will be al-
lowed in the streets. The president of
mis association, Elbo manager Kirby
Bryson, wrote in a letter to other
downtown members of the associa-
tion askingif DART could doits part
to promote normalcy and safety.
"We will never have to close
ourbusinessesand lose valuable rev-

Movie weaves tale of love and murder
By Bobbi Perfetti
To utter his name five times

with a bloody hook for a right hand.
Is this a true statement? Or is it

usual horror films mat blasts the
Barker has come out with an-
other film to make you cringe in
your seat, Candyman, based on his
book "The Forbidden
Virginia Madsen,asHelen Lyle,
portrays a graduate student who
gets herself involved in Candyman's
world through research for her the-
sis on urban folklore. The legend of
Candyman becomes so much a part
of Helen's life that she begins to
endanger her life to find out more
about the man. Helen and her part-
ner, Bernadette Walsh (Kasi
Lemmons), turn up evidence that
links a murder to the mythical fig-
ure of Candyman.
This murder was committed in
Cabrini Green, a slum area of Chi-
cago. The killer was never found,
but those living in the projects at-
tribute the death to Candyman.
Candyman, played by Tony Todd,
has left these people living in fear.
To mention his name invokes fear
in the residents of Cabrini Green.
Candyman feeds off of this fear,
which keeps him 'alive Helen and
Bernadette begin poking around
Cabrini Green to see what the people
had to say about Candyman �
Helen finds herself in a jam
when she becomes the leading sus-

a web of suspense, leaving you on
the edge of the seat while gripping
a friend's hand.

Izzy Stradlin had a lot of weight on his shoul-
ders when he went into the studio to record a solo
self-titled album following his Veak from Guns-N-
Stradlin organized a band and quickly recorded
an album and already has a video in MTV's rotation.
The question is, does the band sound likeGuns-
Is that a bad thing? No.
The band has some of the same sounds that
were used on Use Your Illusion, but the majority of
the album sounds like if s influenced by the Rolling
Stones, especially Keith Richards.
Stradlin went in a different direction. Though
his guitar playing is talented enough, his voice
doesn't fit into the same category as Axl Rose. That
is not to say that Stradlin's voice is weak�quite the
opposite. Stradlin's voice is surprisingly strong, but
he uses it in a way to make himself sound good.
The songs on the album are catered to his capa-
bilities. Stradlin is a good songwriter, and it is the
sign of a good writer who writes songs that show off
his or her strengths. He moves from rock to ballad
with ease. Though there is range on the album, it's
notnear therange thatGuns-N-Roses achieves. One
noticeabledifferencebetweenStradlinand his former
band is that every song on his album can be played
on the radio.
For someone with something to prove to the
music industry, Stradlin proves that he has the
talent. All of his career as a recording artist, he will
most likely have to live in the shadow of Guns-N-
Roses,butStradlinhas taken thefirststep to getfrom

Excellence awards honor School of Art faculty
By Cliff Coffey
Awards for instructors at
J's School of Art are given out
very year. Three awards are pre-
sented to the instructor who best
represented excellence in the past
Theawardsaregiven in recog-
nition of teaching excellence, ser-
vice to the school and research in
creative activity. This year's win-
f ners areCharles Chamberlain, Paul
Hartley and Michael Voors.
School of Art Dean Michael
Dorsey makes the final selection as
to who receives theawards, though
he is given information by every-
one in the department. Each in-
structor turns in a written explana-
�tion of their activities over the past
year and then candidates are cho-
. "sen. Ultimately, Dorsey chooses
who he thinks best fulfilled the
aspects of each area.
Chamberlain, winner of the
Teaching Excellence Award, is the
director of the ceramics depart-
ment. He's grateful thathis 25 years
of work at ECU is appreciated and
feels honored by the award. But he
believes that what he did to win the
award was, "Just my job. That's
what they pay me to do
Chamberlain said that the
award lets him know that his work
is not going unseen. Since an inte-
gral part of the award is also based
on student evaluations that are
taken at the end of each semester, it
means that much more for Cham-
berlain to know that he is getting to
Hartley, the painting coordi-
nator, has taught at ECU for 15
years and is the recipient of the
Service Award. Hartley said the
award cameasa complete surprise
to him. Echoing Chamberlain, he
also said that he saw his work as
what the school was paying him
for. The bulk of the award was due
in large part to his work with the
National Association for Schools of
Art and Design (NASAD). Every
10 years a report is due. The report
is responsible for bringing in funds
to the school in recognition of its
progression and its effectiveness.
Hartley was offered the chance
to work on the project and tried to
gather the information necessary
for the school to give an accurate
account of its work.
Though he spent many long
hours in his quest for the informa-
tion, he stated that there was still a
way to go. Once he has the informa-
tion he will write the report to try to
get reaccredited. East Carolina is
theonly NASAD school in the state.
Voors won the award for re-
search in creative activity. The
award is given to the faculty mem-
ber whom best excelled in this area.
The criterion by which the award is
judged is based upon the work the
instructor did in visual art.
Voors was presented theaward
because of his excellence in exhibi-
tions and shows. In an internation-
ally judged show, the Dakotas In-
ternational Exhibition of Artwork
on or of Paper, he won a purchase
award, an award gh en out by

Poetry forum meets tonight

Sitting at a long table and

verses is the perfect way to de-
scribe the Poetry Forum. The fo-
rum is a great way to get imme-
diate feedback on poems that you
have wrenched from your brain
and scribbled down on paper.
The forum is not a beatnik
convention or an audience of the
spiritually deep, but a group of
fel low poets helping one another
in order to perfect their poetry.
The Forum meets every first and
third Thursday of the month.
Check it out!

'Rebel' showcases creative energy

Every Fall semestera small cor-

about? One word: Rebel � ECU's
student literary and arts journal
dedicated to being solely for the
From its first publication in
1958, RebelstaH members have ac-
tively worked to ensure that the
journal reflects the students' ideas.
Once these are collected, the staff
rums them over to judges for the
literary and art competitions. All
works which place in the contests
are guaranteed to be published.
Composed entirely of a stu-
dent staff with only student works
published, the Rebel prides itself on
being the only college journal of its
Theeditingstaff of the Rebel '93
strives to assure quality and fair-
ness. Begun as a student literary
magazine in 1958 by Ovid Pierce
and two students, the Rebel's for-
mat has evolved only slightly since
its beginning.Fromaliterary maga-
zine, it has grown to include works
of art, which have been displayed
in "The Gallery" section of the
magazine since 1976.
Many of the contributors to the
Rebel often use it as a catapult to
success. Rick Atkinson,nowajour-
nalist for The Washington Post, first
published in the Rebel in 1973. Luke
Whisnant,anECU professor of writ-
ing who recently released his sec-
ond novel, served as the editor in
1978 and 79. With results like this,
it's surprising that Rebel staffs have
to work hard to get student submis-

Margie O'Shea, managing editor.

The bulk of work in the fall
comes from the need to solicit stu-
dents to submit works to be pub-
lished. Even with prize money
given for winning submissions, the
Rebel lacks the amount of entries
which the staff believes the stu-
dents to be capable of producing.
O'Shea thinks there are many rea-
sons that participation is limited.
This year, the staff believes it
has solved these problems by do-
ing three things: making the entries
anonymous to the judges, guaran-
teeing publication to the winners
and assuring the safety of the art

CD Alley caters to students
By Cliff Coffey
Walk into mostany music store
and you'll find stacks and stacks of
cassettes and compact discs of art-
ists that reign supreme on the top-
40 charts. Hammer, C & C Music
Factory and En Vogue are names
you'll have a hard time finding at
CD Alley stocks names like Nir-
vana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Toad
the Wet Sprocket, Spin Doctors and
Nine Inch Nails. Sure, most other
stores may carry one or two of these
artists .butCD Alley thriveson them,
something larger chain stores could
Opened in 1991, CD Alley has
made a place for itself for students.
Owner Sean McCrossin stays in
business by knowing what the stu-
dents want and having it in stock,
no matter how obscure. CD Alley's
business relies heavily on special
orders. While most stores offer spe-
cial orders, CD Alley usually has
theorder in thestore within a week.
Other stores are pressed to have it
within one or two months.
Another important quality of
CD Alley is its ability to carry, and
find, obscure music. This consti-
tutesdoseto 15 percent of business.
Imports make up about 20 to 25
percent of the stock. In stock cur-
rently are U2, R.E.M Guns-N-
Roses and Red Hot Chili Peppers
imports. The store is also well-
stocked with used compact discs.
McCrossin admits that when
he decided to move the store to
Greenville from Kill Devil Hills, he
saw a need in Greenville for a place
that caters to students and their
tastes. With thatinmind,heopened
As a special for the students,
McCrossin offers the College Top
10 at $12.95 all the time. He knows
that without the students coming
into his store, he would already be
out of business. He is dedicated to
bringing college music to college
students at prices they can afford.

When the entire ECU defensive unit takes
the field, there are only a few teams in the
country that can completely dominate the Pi-
rates. The one-armed bandits Jerry Dillon and
Tony Davis were there. Zaim Cunmulaj and
Greg Grandison were present and even new-
comer Hank Cooper contributed to the com-
plete defensive package in last week's game.
Michael Anderson and Sean McConnell,
the field generals of last week's onslaught, were
notof complete percision,butmanaged to do an
effective job against the Bearcats of Cincinnati.
Running back Junior Smith continues to shine
while Clayton Driver and Cedric Van Buren
provide leadership through their on-field ex-
amples of blocking, ball carrying and receiving.
There really isn't a whole lot left to say,
except the obvious. Pitt has a effective offense
and a questionable defense. With Alex Van Pelt
at the helm, the Panthers will put their share of
points on the board. Wecannotcompletely stop
Pitt on offense, but we can sustain their attacks.
The Panther defense is as questionable as the
Pirates. However, ECU has a much more qual-
ity defensive team and should manage to keep
our offense in the game throughout the contest.
The key to victory for ECU will be deter-
mined in the area of turnovers and time of
possession. The longer the Pirate defense is on
the field, the greater opportunity Van Pelt and
his offense will have to exploit them. On the
other hand, the longer Anderson and McConnell
can maintain possession and stay in control of
the ball and the clock, the longer Pitt's suspect
defense will remain on the fieid and possibly
expose the holes in their defense.
I see Saturday's matchup as one of the best
games of the season. With Pitt looking to re-
venge last year's lost, pride is not the only
objective for wining this game, but respect! .

Sorry Reebok, it wasn't settled in
Barcelona. Dan and Dave need not apply. So
who is the world's greatest athlete? Good
question. Like that unspeakable part of the
anatomy, everybody has an opinion. An-
swering the question, however, is about as
easy as deciding if water sinks or floats.
To have some sort of semi-objective re-
porting, we need to set up a few criteria, the
first of which specifies that there can be no
large moving mechanical objects involved.
This effectively weeds out motorcycle,
boat, car and (Thank God!) monster truck
racing So what if a NASCAR driver can read
a record's label at 78 rpm? I want to see how
fast an athlete can run a quarter mile without
the aid of a car, motorcycle, llama, mon-
Another thing we need to do is keep it
general. If we start talking about players
position-by-position, we'll talk forever with-
out getting anywhere. That is fine for presi-
dential candidates but gets us nowhere, fast.
So now that we have all athletes lumped
together by sports, it's time to get to work
Strength is important for any athlete.
Not the power to move mountains or Oprah,
but pound-for-pound muscle power. If we
went with sheer muscle, it would effectively
weed out many male and most female ath-
letes, which is not politically incorrect We
just love these little journalistic buzzwords
but it is simply not fair. Many sports don't
rely on bulk, but how effectively you manage
what you have.
Speed is another important consider-
ation. Simply put no slugs allowed. Like
speed, coordination speaks for itself. It is
relative, but some sports rely on it more than
others. Endurance rounds out the list.
So here we go.

At first sight of Thomas Jones, one of
to see why he has been so successful on the
athletic field. Hailing from Newark, New
Jersey, Jones lettered four years in football
and basketball at Lumberton High School
and was voted the school's best all-around
athlete his senior year.
However, Jones' successes are not lim-
ited to me realm of athletics. He is attending
ECU an and academic scholarship.
A transfer student from Campbell Uni-
versity, where he was majoring in pre-phar-
macy, Jones was slightly overwhelmed
when he first arrived at ECU. a
"(ECU) is like New York City com-
pared to Campbell Jones said.
"Everything's kind of fast. Youhave to learn
Jones was quick to cite East Carolina's
size, atmosphere and the opportunity to
change his intended major from pre-phar-
macy to pre-med as factors in deciding to
transfer. As well as high hopes of entering
ECU's medical school.
"I just applied to medical school here at
East Carolina, Chapel Hill, a coupleof places,
with intentions of, hopefully, (getting) into
medical school somewhere and go on to
become a good doctor someday
Although still uncertain, Jones has con-
sidered the fields of cardiology and emer-
gency medicine as his primary focuses.
Jones maintains hishighacademic stan-
dards by studying three to four and a half
hours per day�quite a feat after the rigor-
ous football training schedule that requires
an average of five hours daily. In addition,
he often tutors students in organic and gen-
eral chemistry, as well as statistics. Occa-
sionally, he acts as an academic role model
for other plavers on the team.
Although he is an excellent student,

myth that all football players are

Pirates lose to JMU
in 3-0 heartbreaker
By Bob Owens
The song is getting old, b't
the men's soccer team had to lis-
ten to another verse as they
dropped 3-0 to national ly ranked
Colonial Athletic Association foe
James Madison. It was the fourth
consecutive CAA loss for the Pi-
rates, w ho are now 2-9 overall, 0-

The band started warming
up early as Madison's Ivan
Sampson beat ECU goalkeeper
Bryan DeWeese in the penalty
box, 19:47 into the match. JMU's
David Villareal came in off the
bench and scored the team's sec-
ond goal when he drilled a re-

Pirate net 39 minutes into the
Down 2-0 after the first half,
the Pirates still had a chance of
pulling out a win, or a least a tie.
The chance seemed to evaporate
after the first five minutes of the
second half, when JMU's Kaario
Kankunen scored the team's third
goal on a shot from 25 yards out.
Down three scores and with only
40 minutes remaining, East Caro-
lina would need an offensive
miracle to salvage a win. There
were no heavenly trumpet blasts,
no great floods and no offense.
