New system allows class
registration by phone
By Joseph Horst
With current and upcoming im-
provements in telecommunication lines,
ECU will put itself on the cutting edge of
technology within the next five years.
The existing telecommunications
network is based on a coaxial cable sys-
tem, similar to that used in cable TV. The
present network is also a broadband net-
work, meaning that it only served admin-
istrative purposes and very little academic
Costing about $12-14 million, the
new network will be comprised of fiber
optic lines. The lines will include the en-
tire ECU campus as well as the School of
The network will not only cover all
geographical and organizational areas,
but it will also combine and integrate
voice, data and video traffic into a single
infrastructure. The combination will
eliminate redundant management sys-
tems and software protocols.
Richard Brown, vice chancellor for
business affairs, said the new system is
designed with the needs of the campus as
well as the students in mind.
"We want the students to have the
capacity to dial from their room to the
library (for electronic card catalogs or
CD-ROM information) Brown said. "We
also want them to be able to use electronic
mail to contact faculty or turn in assign-
One of the biggest and possibly most
needed improvements to the telecommu-
nications system will be the addition of
telephonic registration. When hooked up,
a link will exist between the phone sys-
tem and the SIS (Student Information Sys-
Students can then register for their
classes over the phone, as is being done in
other North Carolina colleges, like North
Carolina State in Raleigh. The phone link
will also allow students to be connected
to an attendant if assistance is needed.
When contacting the attendant, the
student's file will automatically be for-
warded to the attendant's terminal. This
capability will save time for both indi-
viduals and reduce the feeling of the stu-
dent just being a number.
Another aspect of the new network
will be the enhancement of student-fac-
ulty interaction. Instruction can now be
done between separate rooms and build-
ings, with equipment being established
for 10 teleconferencing and teleteaching
rooms on campus.
Grant proposals and files can now
be transferred almost instantaneously;
databases would be available from fac-
ulty offices and labs.
Instruction would be done on a
regional basis with the new network.
The School of Medicine will be able to
search on-line clinical and research da-
tabases; they will also be able to per-
form remote telemedia diagnosis.
Campus security will also benefit
from the updating of the present tele-
Campus officers will be able to see
the origin and other information on a
911 call � even from a residence hall
room, which is currently not available
on the system.
The idea of a single I.D. card to
enter residence halls or other buildings
after hours is also being discussed.
Residents in the residence halls will
also be provided with access to major
cable TV channels after the network is
installed. This will improve not only
entertainment offerings but also educa-
tional and emergency broadcasts as well.
Courtney Jones, SGA president,
said she agrees with Brown on the vir-
tually limitless possibilities that the net-
work will offer ECU.
"I think we've been needing some-
thing like this for a long time Jones
said. "It's going to transform our cam-
pus. It's a very thorough plan that al-
lows for future improvements
Brown commented on the image
that the network wi II portray about ECU.
"ECU is very well-positioned to
move ahead of most universities with
this type of network Brown said. "We
can take advantage of the most up-to-
date technologies and put ECU on the

Bad air plagues General Classroom

Students becoming workaholics
The burnout rate among students is increasing from year to
year. "There is a sense, nationwide, that mental health staffs are
seeing more distressed college students said Philip Meilman,
director of counseling at the College of William and Mary in
Virginia. Students are working more part-time and full-time jobs
while getting paid less for their efforts. Educators have com-
plained that students often put academics on the back burner in
order to concentrate on rent and tuition.
New York college begins publication
On Oct. 5, Adelphi University officials reached an agree-
ment with editor Amy Demner that ended an ongoing dispute
between the Delphian and the administration. The university
shut down the paper for six issues after an August 14 deadline was
missed for the printing of a libel disclaimer. The disclaimer would
say that the Delphian's views were not necessarily those of the
school's or its students and disclaiming liability. In return, the
administration agreed to cover the paper with libel insurance
protecting the paper in the event of a lawsuit. Both the paper and
the administration are pleased with the accord. "It was very
equitable Demner said. "The paper prints the paper and the

Citadel to admit women
A South Carolina higher education commissioner, Fred
Sheheen, told the military institution, The Citadel, that it should
admit women or risk losing a court fight. The Citadel has been
sued by three female veterans on the grounds that they should
have access to day classes, instead of the separate school for
women that The Citadel has now. Sheheen said that he can only
recommend the action, not enforce it because of lack of legal
authority. The only other state-run school that is military and all-
male, Virginia Military Institute, recently won a federal appellate
court ruling in October. The ruling said that VMI need not admit
women, but they must provide equal opportunities for equal
Florida needs more dorms
Studies show that Florida's nine public universities will
need at least 10,500 more dorm beds between 1992 and the year
2006 to keep up with increasing student demand. The state
university system, currently enrolling 185,000 students, expects
an additional 80,000 students in the next 14 years. A spokesman
said that current dorms mustalso be renovated. Officials estimate
the cost of adding the beds at $200 million, and another $200
million to upgrade existing dorms. Florida's current on-campus
population comes to about 12 percent, under that of the national
30 percent figure.

DePuy asked to clarify wiretapping
The ECU wiretappingcasedemands further
investigation. The U.S. attorney assigned to the
case, David Folmar, decided in October to drop
the case, ma inly because witnesses changed their
testimony and made the case confusing.
"If you get people telling different stories
on the witness stand than they told the FBI or the
grand jury, you cannot use that typeof testimony
against people' Folmar told Vie East Carolinian.
"Their testimony would never hold up in cross-
examination. " Folmar wasn 't the only one in the
courtroom who was startled by the changes in
testimony. Members of the jury said the case
became muddy, and they acquitted the two
defendants, Teddy Roberson, the formerdirector
of telecommunications, and John Burrus, a former
Public Safety captain.
The jurors who acquitted Burrus and
Roberson said the defendants were scapegoats.
The jurors also said they thought Burrus' or
Roberson's superiors authorized the wiretap
rather than the two defendants.
The difficulty Folmar encountered in his
prosecution,coupled with jurists'beliefs that the
defendant's superiors are guilty and remain
uncharged, indicates that the case deserves more
investigation rather than be abandoned in the
THE BUCK STOPS HERE
confusion of conflicting testimony.
Investigations into the case of illegal
wiretapping that occurred at East Carolina
University must continue. Two of the three
employees named in thestateaudit report, Burrus
and Roberson, have been acquitted, but one re-
mains: Director of Public Safety James DePuy.
These contradictions and denials have
muddied the case, but nevertheless indicate the
need for further investigation.
The public has the right to know who
authorized the wiretapping that took place on
ECU property in 1991. Roberson and Burrus lost
their jobs, but they were found innocent. The
university has paid over $250,000 in out-of-court
settlements to 16 people whose conversations
were taped illegally. The federal prosecutor
investigating the case is encumbered by changes
in testimony. Still the guilty party remains
DePuy testified to the same grand jury that
indicted Burrus and Roberson. DePuy was not
indicted, which provides evidence towards his
innocence, but both Burrus and Roberson testified
that DePuy ordered a wiretap.
Nevertheless, we feel DePuy could, and
should, face a grand jury.

(Editor's note: The following
column will be nm in three parts.)
Our nation is stampeding
into a new era of racial conflict.
Tragically, this era forebodes con-
sequences which bear sharp con-
trast to both martin Luther King's
"dream and to the intent of the
major civil rights legislation wen
over the past quarter of a century.
Even more tragically, this era is
being ushered in by deceit, suspi-
cion, destruction and death. The
monetary costs of this epidemic
are becoming staggering, but the
true drain will be on the coffers of
the American spirit. Already,
Americansare suffering from that
mix of fear, rage and confusion
which are the recipe for panic.
We are being dragged into
an unmanageable situation when
we see Los Angeles cops beating
Rodney King, and then see a gang
of blacks beating a white truck
driver nearly to death on the
streets of a city in flames. We are
slapped into disbelief when the
white sheriff of tiny Oak City is
killed by a black bank robber, and
then when one of the robber's
black hostages is shot to death by
copsduringthe ensuing shootout.
We see on the national news the
faceof a young white woman who,
along with her three-year-old
child, was hijacked on a public
street. The child was left at a
daycare center, the woman was
found stabbed to death in a ditch
and a black man is sought for the
crime. How can we comprehend
and how do we react when a group
of Detroit police officers, at least
one of whom was black, beat a
young black man to death, even
(some say) after he was hand-
These are but a few of the
more sensational symptoms of our
growing plague of hatred. But
there is subtler, less dramatic,
much less publicized evidence of
what our future holds.
Specifically, there is increas-
ing emphasis on separation and
segregation. This idea seems
predicated on the belief that
people become powerless and
in America growing rapidly
sufferevengreaterdiscrimination thing. Whites are plagued by in-
when they attempt to assimilate
into a common society. Black lead-
ers such as Tony Brown claim that
African-Americans lose when they
are sprinkled among predomi-
nantly white society. Brown ad-
vocates that blacks should coa-
lesce into their own economically
and culturally independent and
The citizens would support
each others' businesses and other
social needs instead of contribut-
ing their resources to enterprises
which are not specifically focused
on the concerns of African-Ameri-
cans. This idea should be very
appealing to white groups who
feel that their culture is diluted
and weakened when it is com-
pelled to function arm-in-arm with
persons of color.
Further evidence of this
"splitting-up" is the resurgence of
Malcolm X to near-saintly status.
Malcolm X was not merely an ad-
vocate for what he perceived to be
the loss of African identity; he was
a militant proponent of a separate
black Muslim nation.
Closer to home is the push
on the campus of the University of
North Carolina for a free-stand-
ing black cultural center. Ironi-
cally, some proponents of the cen-
ter are working to force less-ada-
mantlv pro-center blacks to be-
come more vocal in their support.
The Associated Press
recently reported that an
anonymous group calling
themselves "The Brotherhood of
the Sierte" sent "veiled threats" to
some black faculty members a
UNC because "they're not
speaking out loudly enough in
support of a black cultural cen-
ter According to the AP report,
one letter from Sierte warned that
"the last thing that white people
need to know is that black folks
will stab each other in the back in
spite of their common wishes
This statement by Sierte is
poignantly naive. Whites have
been stabbing each other in the
back for so long that it would come
as no great revelation to them that
people of other races do the same
fighting. About 150 years ago in
the United States, it was Irish ver-
sus German versus Eastern Euro-
pean versus Catholic versus Prot-
estant. Nowadays, the nationality
lines between whites haveblurred,
but religious and geographical
differences still cause significant
Among modern blacks, it is
not uncommon to find prejudices
between lighter-skinned and
cans. Groups like Sierte seem to
have taken it upon themselves to
define just how black an African-
American should be.
And that raisesanotherques-
tion. Just exactly what is an Afri-
can-American? It is popular for
American blacks to identify with
the culture and history of Egypt.
Many claim direct lineage to the
supposed origins of humankind
in the fertile crescent of
Mesopotamia. But Egyptians are
not of the same stock as many of
those blacks claiming to be the
sons and daughters of pharaohs.
The vast majority of African-
Americans descend from the sub-
Saharan peoples of Africa. For
these Americans to claim Egyp-
tian descent deprives true North
Africans of their legitimate heri-
tage, and essentially proclaims that
sub-Saharan culture is not worth
So racial conflicts run deep,
even among members of a com-
mon racial group. Our cultural
identity is indeed important, but
it is not as important as our com-
mon culture. It is upon this that
our survival depends. At the mo-
ment, the shared culture that is
America is tense and grappling
for a clear picture of why things
are as they are There is no simple
answer, but understanding is es-
sential if we ever hope to heal this
It's easy to see that we have
a problem. It's harder to under-
stand why. It's even harder, still,
to resolve it.
Part 2 of this series will

the racial crisis in America.

matter how much the elite, sup-
posed Christian leaders would like
you to believe it. These people �
the Jesse Helmses, Pat Buchanans,
Pat Robertsons, and George
Bushes (to name only a handful)
�call themselves good, Christian
men and then publicly and pri-
vately attack those who are differ-
ent than them. It is appalling for
me to think that these are the men

Why Christians feel so
threatened by homosexuals, we
will probably never know. Gays
have been shunned by their
churches repeatedly for seemingly
no particular reason.
And now homosexuals are
being told that their government
has no place for them. There is a
bill floating around Washington
that may allow self-insured em-
ployers to cut benefits as they see
fit. This, if passed, can set up nu-
merous opportunities for employ-
ers to discriminate against work-
ers who are in need of, let's say,
This is not to say that
homosexuals are the only people
who contract AIDS. The opposite
is true, in fact: AIDS in the
homosexual community has
declined steadily since the out-
break was acknowledged and now
the highest percentage of cast s are
found in women and children. To
be denied health care is a crime.
To be denied health care simply
because you are gay is, in my eyes,
But the issue that hasn't been
looked at yet, and which is prob-
ably the most important, is the fact
that the homosexua Is in Colorado,
and throughout the nation, are
being told that there are people all
around them who hate them, scorn. -
them and are afraid of them.
Now we are dealing with
human emotions; the pain,
confusion and anger in the
homosexual community is
heartbreaking. Homosexuals are
being told that they are inferior
and now are seen by the
government as second-class citi-
zens. The knowledge of scorn from
so many neighbors and co-work-
ers must be a terrible burden to
wake up to every morning.
Our country has lost its
vision. "With liberty and justice
for all" is not only a hollow cry,
but also a slap in the face.
By Jim Shamlin
'Free' deemed political term, not economic
(Editor's note: The following is
the second part of a column that was
begun on Oct. 10)
If the answer is "no then
there are several things each of us
must do, a unifying philosophy
we must adopt and put into prac-
tice as soon as we can. We must
realize that the word "free" in re-
gard to government is a political
term, not an economic one; we
must realize that "we the people"
are composed of all people, of in-
dividuals whose rights are equally
important; we must realize that
government is a watchdog to
guard over the rights of all, not an
attack dog with which one group
suppresses and enslaves another.
And we must realize, once and for
all, that the peoplecontrol the gov-
ernment � it is not the other way
The government we have
today, if put on trial, would be
found unconstitutional to its core.
There is not a single item in the Bill
of Rights, no basic freedom, that
has not been abridged, restricted
or abolished. This is not solely the
fault of crooked politicians � the
blame is equally shared by the
irresponsible voters who elected
To install a responsible gov-
ernment, we must be responsible
as voters. We must consider our
candidates carefully, consider
their stand as politicians, not their
image as celebrities. We must re-
frain from using our vote to extort
economic benefits for ourselves at
the expense of others, understand-
ing that it always works both ways.
We must stop using our govern-
ment to enforce religious and
moral standards, accepting that
freedom of religion applies to all
religions, not the dominant de-
For now, the damage is done
� those whom we have elected
will remain in office for the next
four to six years. We can write
them letters of protest, but it will
do little good � they're already in
the system, free to do as they wish
and to blame it on their opponents
when the next election comes. We
will pay for their mistakes. We
will pay until the next election, or
until this country crumbles, which-
ever comes first. Either alterna-
tive is possible.
All in all, our only hope for
the future is that we leam from the
suffering we are about to face �
that the years of hunger and of
economic decay will leave a scar
on our memory that no media
image or crafty rhetoric will wear
away. For those who will die, ei-
ther from waiting for medical care
or from economic hardship, we
must build a monument in our
hearts. For those who will flee the
country, seeking a long-forgotten
corner of the globe where liberty
still exists, we must rebuild this
country from the ruins, making it
a place they will feel proud to call
home. For all the generations to
come, we must remember.
It is not the intention of this
letter to invoke wrath at any given
candidate or political party: all of
them are infected. Bush, Clinton
and Perot all have their own so-
cialized medicine packages; and
all of the political parties want to
dabble in the economy, each ap-
plying its own brand of govern-
ment control, each wanting to
spread the disease in a different
sector of the population. They are
all equally worthless and corrupt.
The intention of this letter is
to clarify our need fora new politi-
cal philosophy, a new generation
of voter and politician devoted to
the rights of all citizens. This may
necessitate the formation of a new
political party, or an extensive re-
vision of the platforms of existing
ones. In any case, the need for
change is unmistakable. For those
who need proof, the coming years
will provide more than enough.

Hands-on learning gained through Bermuda field school
By LeClair Harper
During the month of September, 11 ECU
graduate students in the Maritime History
and Nautical Archaeology Program attended
field school at the Bermuda Maritime Mu-
seum. The students conducted a shipwreck
survey on the reefs around Bermuda.
ECU students have been attending the
field school since 1984. These field schools
give students the opportunity to work on
shipwreck sites and use a variety of special-
Students dove on the 16th century Span-
ish ship Galgo hoping to find structural re-
mains. The ship had been salvaged for arti-
facts by treasure hunters in the 1960s.
"Unfortunately what we found out was
that (previous salvers) did not leave the hull
structure intact, and they, in all likelihood,
destroyed it to get under it to make sure there
were not other artifacts associated with it'said
Gordon Watts, the underwater archaeologist
in charge of the Bermuda field school.
The students surveyed the coral reef by
being towed behind boats on specialized
boards to locate previously known reefs. They
used a state-of-the-art global positioning sys-
tem to record accurate positions of the wrecks
once they were found by the towboarders.
"This is the first year that we've had the
equipment to fix an accurate location for
wreck sites we discover said Watts. "One
of our objectives wa s to do a su rvey to get an
accurate location and a preliminary assess-
ment of all the shipwreck material that we've
One of the main goals of the field schools
that ECU offers is to provide students with
"Bermuda offers such a wide range of
wrecks and sites to learn from said gradu-
ate student Mike Krivor.
Students not only get the chance to see a
variety of wrecks but also get to operate
equipment such as the global positioning
system and the magnetometer, a device that
locates metal objects.
"As far as field experience, this is prob-
ably the most beneficial semester of all since
I'm not mechanically inclined Adrienne
Askins said. "It's a chance to work with a lot
of equipment I haven't worked with before,
such as learning to drive the boat and run-
ning the different compressors
Watts said that this experience is an es-
sential part of the students' study and pro-
videsan understanding thatcan'tbe received
in the classroom. "The students have al-
ready developed ideas about work to look
for, and they've seen some of the sites � 18th

gave room to those lost in the grooves of
fast music and lights. Also, a backdrop
of computer-animated videos enter-

There was a finger painting wall
where happy partiers could make their

Stevie Ray's legacy lives on

With the release of

another gem has been
found buried deep
within Epic's musi:
ments Stevie Ray's in-
credible journey from
a street-wise kid play-
ing barrooms in Aus-
tin, Tx to a blues leg-
end admired by the
likes of Eric Clapton,
Buddy Guy and Robert
Cray. Unlike his seven
other albums, In the Be-
ginning documents Stevie Ray's career
before the first major record deal, when
he was simply known as Stevie Vaughan.
Because the show would be broad-
cast live on KBLJ-FM in Austin, Stevie
Ray realized this could be the break he
and his band, Double Trouble, were
looking for. They approached the
evening with an incredibly loose en-

On April 1, 1980,
in a little bar in Austin

it was definitely there.
Taken from a two-
track recording of the
simulcast radio broad-
cast, Stevie Ray went
at the audience full
force, as he did every
night, resulting in one
of the best concerts
After an opening

Next up, Stevie Ray tips his hat to a
couple of his guitar heros, Eddie Jones
and Otis Rush, on the classic cover tunes
of "Guitar Hurricane" and "All Your
Love (I Miss Your Loving)
He follows these songs with another
cover song, "Tin Pan Alley which
would later surface on his second al-
bum, Couldn't Stand the Weather. This
piece, which is almost eight minutes
long and has a couple of screaming solos,
is the high point of the concert and
sounds even better than the studio ver-
Stevie Ray then returns with an-
other original, "Love Struck Baby" and

listen to the frenetic guitar playing which

on drums and Jackie Newhouse on bass,
Stevie Ray takes off again with another
original song, "I'm Cryin to close out
I only have a couple of complaints
about this "new live album: five songs
were edited out of the officially released
album (including a 10-minute rendition
of the classic "Texas Flood") to reduce
the concert to only 45 minutes.
Also, "I'm Cryin' " is mistakenly
labeled "Live Another Day" in the liner
notes, an unforgiveable sin considering
Jimmie handled executive production
duties for the album.
Despite these minor flaws, this is a
remarkable album with some of the fin-
est fret-work you will ever hear.

-Craig Sheffer, Brad Pitt and Tom Skerritt star in the drama, "A River Runs Through It adapted from
the acclajned novella by Norman Mclean and directed by Robert Redford.
Every so often a film comes along
that can be lauded as a masterpiece, a
consummate work of art. Films that
fall into this category stir the soul,
elicit strong emotions and provide
A River Runs Through It qualifies
as a masterpiece.
All facets of this film flawlessly
fit into place. The characters seem so
real because of the perfect comple-
ment of director, actors and script.
A River Runs Through It was
directed by Robert Redford, a man
more known for his acting than his
directing. Still, Redford has shown
promise in his two previous directo-
rial efforts Ordinary People and The
Milagro Beanfield War.
Redford shows that the compas-
sion he usually displays on screen is
part of his very fiber. The wonderful
treatment he gives this film verifies
Redford's deep artistic sensibilities.
He cares deeply about life, as exhib-
ited by his art.
The actors Redford collected for
A River Runs Through It mesh per-
fectly into the story. Tom Skerritt plays
a stem Presbyterian minister devot-
edly raising his two sons, Paul (Brad
Pitt, the hitchhiker in Thebna and
Louise) and Norman (Craig Sheffer).
Emily Lloyd, who gave a bratty per-
formancein Wish You Were Here, gives
a decidedly laid-back touch to the
role of Jessie, the girl with whom
Norman falls in love.
The real marvel in A River Runs
Through It is the story.
Norman Maclean, who wrote the
novella of the same name, oversaw
the initial production phases of this
film until hisdeath shortly after shoot-
ing began. Maclean's story is an a u to-
biographical account of life in
Most of the story centers on the
at the University of Chicago as an
English professor. Maclean had spent
six years at Dartmouth prior to this
summer. The last summer of his youth
serves as a metaphor for his family
life up until that point.
Before this summerarrives in the
film, a thorough family background
is developed. It is this early develop-
ment that allows the audience the
chance to know thecharacters in later
Redford begins the film by read-
ing from Maclean's book; "In our
family there was no clear line be-
tween religion and fly-fishing Fish-

ily together. Amid the majestic moun-
tains of Montana, the bonds between

Love flows freely between these
characters though the only way they
seem to be able to express it is to fish
together. Noneof the malecharacters

shake hands. Watching the way the
family relates will touch most view-

While a month in Bermuda is
certainly wonderful, the students
spent almost all of their time
working, having only four days
off the entire time and spending
from seven to nine hours out on
the boats most days.
After the students returned
to the fort, the boat had to be
unloaded and all gear had to be
washed and hung to dry. After
dinner, the students wrote up re-
ports of what was found during
the day marked the positions of
the finds on a nautical map, de-
veloped pictures, viewed videos
taken of the sites and worked on
personal conservation projects in
On their days off, the stu-
dents explored the rest of the is-
land, touring the cities of
Hamilton and St. Georges and
relaxing on the pink beaches of
Bermuda. Students also spent
time at the Frog and Onion Tub,
just outside the museum, drink-
ing pints of Bass Ale and doing
the Marange dance.
The students were stationed
at a hostel in the Bermuda Mari-
time Museum, an early 18th cen-
tury fort located in the Royal Na-
val Dockyard of Bermuda. The
hostel is comprised of separate
sleeping areas for the males and
females with rows of bunk beds.
One student, Sean Holland-
Moore, was in charge of prepar-

Arkansas State has no
By Robert S. Todd
Before I touch on a subject that is
much more important than touch-
downs and the win column, let me
talk a little about the game.
ECU will beat the Arkansas
State Indians, 52-17. No contest. We
will beat them so badly, I predict a
Deke Owens field goal. If we lose, I
will jab me eyes out with a pencil.
Both defenses are terrible. ASU
is ranked 104th in the nation with
ECU a close 105th.
However, ECU'S offense is one
of the country's best. ASU has not
scored 20 points in a game all season.
It is highly possible they could score
their season high against us, but I'm
trying to make the defense feel a
little better about the loss to West
I was close on last weeks score
�the final was41-28,1 picked it34-28

much credit). A mere touchdown is
all that kept me from silencing my
critics. Probably just luck. Let's see
how I do this week.
There really isn't much left to say
about the game.
Thereis,however,a serious prob-

ASU not in same
league as Bucs
By Warren Sumner
Assistant Sports Editor
Anyone who enjoys watching
"air attack" football should be in
Ficklen Stadium Saturday to watch
the ECU Pirates destroy Arkansas
After a two-game losing streak,
the Pirates are looking for a victim and
Perkins' unsuspecting 1-8 team will
do just fine.
The Pirates, troubled by their in-
ability to sustain critical offensive
drives, will have no problem with
ASU, who rates 102nd in pass de-
fense and 107th in defending the run.
Watch for Junior Smith and Charles
Miles to each rush over 125 yards
Saturday, as ASU opponents have
averaged 290.6 yards on the ground
mis year. Even more devastating to
ASU will be the Pirate passing game.
Despite losing their past twocon-
tests, the "Pirate Airlines" are still
flyingstrong, withtheMichael Ander-
son-led passing offense rated fourth
in the nation. Look for Anderson to
make Greenville's skies not at all
friendly for Arkansas State, as he is
likely to have a career day.
The Pirate defense, although sta-
tistically worse than the ASU unit,
will outshine ArkansasState'sorfense
and give Anderson and company
for Tony Davis and Jerry Dillon to
give ASU quarterbacks a nightmare
behind the line and for the Pirate
secondary to come up with more in-
terceptions than in previous games.
shutout if they play to the level of
intensity they played in the first and
fourth quarters of the West Virginia
game. With ASU ranked 106th in
total and rushing offense, the Pirates
should be able to contain the unit by
concentrating on pass defense.
ASU, only averaging 82.6 rush-
big yards a game, does not possess
the rushing power to give ECU the
problems they have faced in their
Head Coach Ray Perkins, after
an NFL coaching career, is doing an
admirable job in helping ASU make
the transition to a Division I-A pro-
gram. Perkins- and hjs team are find-
ing out this season how difficult mat
transition will be.
If Perkins stays at ASU, who
knows? Perhaps in a few years, they
will develop into a formidable foot-
ball power, but they aren't there yet.
They aren't ready for Greenville's
resident passing phenomenon.
Perkins' team will lose, and lose big.
Someone fire up those air-raid
sirens, the Pirates are back in town.

ECU Swim team rides wave of victories
Fr-Rs, WR, 5-9,
By Brent St. Pierre
The ECU men's and women's
swim teams road a wave to huge
victories at William and Mary Sat-
urday. The men defeated the Tribe
149-85 while the women cruised to
a 146-96 victory. The men won 11
of 13 events while the women took
care of business by winning 10 of
13 in their events.
ECU Head Coach Rick Kobe
was ecstatic to say the least: "The
times were really outstanding con-
sidering how early in the year it is.
For the men the upper classmen
were key, they did what they had
to. For the women it was great to
see those kind of performances
from freshmen, hopefully who can
use this great victory as a spring-
board into our next meet Nov. 20th
The Pirate men's honor roll was
spearheaded by Derick Nelson who
won all three events in which he
swam. Nelson was first in the 200-
meter free style with a time of
1:45.16, first in the 500-meter
freestyle with a time of 4:48.70.
The southern Virginia water
was equally inviting to the Lady
Pirates as well.

No lifeguard on duty: ECU's men and women have made a big splash in the
water this season.
Beth Humphry. Schmieder won the
1000 freestyle in 10:39.80 the 200 IM
in 2:13.60 and the 500 free in 5:13.10.
Humphry splashed her way to vic-
tory in the 200 free with a time of
1:57.60 as well as in the 200 fly in
2:12.40. Humphry's third win came
in the 400-meter freestyle relay.
Senior co-captain Tia Pardue al-
most pulled off the hat trick as well.
She was first in the 50-meter free in
25.30, first in the 100 free in 54.80and
swam anchor on the400-meter med-
ley relay with Rachel Atkinson,
Hilary Stokes and Tracy Garrett. They
finished second with a time of 4:10.30.
Tara Roland reigned supreme on
the board. She was first in the one
meter competition with 106 points and
first in the three meter competition
with 115 points.
Other impressive performances
included Rachael Atkinson's third
place finish in the 200-meter back, her
time was 2:17.40. Co-captain
JacquelineSilber finished third as well
in the 200-meter breast with a time of

On Saturday, the East Carolina Rugby
team lost a hard fought match to Mary Wash-
ington. This match decided which team would
advance to the East Coast regional tourna-
ment. Both teams were chosen to represent
their states as wild card teams. On this cold
Saturday morning it would be the Virginia
team which was victorious; they scored 19
points in the last 20 minutes of play to defeat
the Pirates, 25-18.
The match was highlighted with hard hit-
ting and brutal rucks and mauls from both
teams. East Carolina controlled much of the
loose play. Chris Carney and Jason Webb kept
the pressure on the Mary Washington backs
and were causing major problems for the ball
transition on their wing. Open field tackling
became very rough and it was evident that high
tackle penalties would not becalled. Both teams
took advantage of this, but it was Bob "Homer"
Thomas (6-4, 260 pounds) who enjoyed it the
most. Thomas was burying the Mary Washing-
ton ball-carriers; and as a result, tempers and
"extracurricular" activities began to flare.
The only score Mary Washington could
manage was a thiee-point penalty kick which
made the score 8-6. This inability to convert
