Cancer Society calls
for Smokeout today
By Joseph Horst
Health officials throughout
the state and country, including
here at ECU, are asking individu-
als to take a special drop day this
third Thursday in November.
"(Today), the day of the
American Cancer Society's
Great American Smokeout,
we're asking students, faculty
and staff to drop out from smok-

24 hours. The Society also asks
people who dip or chew tobacco
to drop their habits for the day.

consider dipping snuff and
chewing tobacco as safe alter-

Rinpoche entered the room while the audi-
ence stood respectfully. He took his seat
behind a table covered in fine Asian silks
and spoke softly as he explained the Bud-
dhist conception of compassion.
"Compassion isa very important prin-
ciple in the spiritual path of Buddhism he
said. "Compassion in Buddhismarises from
the call of loving kindness
� Rinpoche explained how one could
acquire that compassion.
"The real cause for generating com-
passion is the understanding and experi-
ence of suffering he said. "Suffering, on
theother hand, is the fundamental nature of
"What then is suffering? One word
can describe suffering; suffering is a fear.
Whether we are in our happiest state or we
are in a depressed state, our being is per-
vaded by this fear
Rinpoche said we deal with fear by
denying it. For example, we avoid talking
about death because we are afraid to accept
'This denial becomes another fear,
another suffering. It becomes destructive,
and obstructs us from havinga pure heart
Rinnpoche was bom a t Ru mtek Mon-
astery in Sikkin in 1965 and, when less than
one month of age, was recognized as the
seventh incarnation of the Dzogchen
Ponlops by the Gyalwa Karmapa and the

among snuff dippers.
In 1991, about 7.4 million
people observed the Great
American Smokeout. Within
three days, more than half of the
people were still not smoking.
"Our main objective is to
create awareness about the haz-
ards of smoking Tomkalski
said. "We're hoping students,
faculty and staff � smokers and
nonsmokers � will participate
Nonsmokers can join in the
observance by signing up to
"Adopt-a-Smoker" for the day.
People who join this pro-
gram, coordinated by the office
of Health Promotion and Well-
Being, can receive survival kits
either at the office of Health Pro-
motion and Well-Being (303

(316 Wright), residencehalls or in
Room 127 of the Brody Building.
Residence halls on campus
will receive the most promotion
regarding this event. Educational

Art school gains exhibition space
By Tracy Ford
A 900 square-foot senior
exhibition space partially
funded by Burroughs
Wellcome will be added to
Grey Art Gallery in Jenkins.
The space intended for se-
nior exhibitions, a graduation
requirement, will be separate
from Grey Art Gallery. How-
ever, the gallery and the exhibi-
tion space can be combined to
make one large show if needed.
"Our graduating seniors
will have the unique opportu-
nity of designing, arranging
and executing an exhibition ot
their work in a professional
space said Michael Dorsey,
dean of the School of Art.
Besides the $30,000 given
to the art school by Burroughs
Wellcome, the Art Department
raised $21,000 by way of a ben-
efit auction in April. Two-hun-
dred works were donated by
faculty, students and friends.

Waiching TV to earn degree
College Press Service
Instead of living on campus or commut-
ing to school, thousands of students nation-
high-tech means, including two-way five
video and television courses.
With video tapes and textbooks, or two-
way video and audio, students can now re-
ceive an associate of arts degree without ever
stepping on campus. Some colleges are inves-
tigating ways so students can earn four-year
degrees at remote sites.
Leaders in the television education
movement say such delivery makes a college
education available to people who live too far
to commute to school or don't have time to
attend classes out of their area.
"What we are finding is that students at
a distance do not perform any less than if they
were here on campus said Clark Ketchum,
a spokesman at trie University of Maine at
Augusta. "The advantage for these students
is basically access. Distance precluded them
from taking classes
The University of Maine's seven cam-
puses are tied together by an electronic dis-
tance education system. Students at one cam-
pus can hear and see a lecture on another
campus. This system is not interactive, but at
various other sites there is an audio system
that enables students to respond to instruc-
tors and vice versa. Fifty high school sites are
tied into the svstem.
There are 2,641 students enrolled in the
University of Maine's distance programs out
of a total of 32,826 in the university system,
Ketchum said. They pay no extra tuition or
fees for the telecommunications courses.
These students can receive associate of
arts degrees in business administration, gen-
eral studies, liberal arts and social services.
"Hopefully they can transfer to a campus
and get a bachelor's degree he said. "Down
the road they will be able to get a bachelor's

sity of Maine's system, which began in 1989,
has determined that the students in telecom-
munications courses do no worse or better
than traditional on-campus students .
"The underlying element is the
student's motivation to learn. They are inde-
pendent people who aren't missinganvthing
Ketchum said. "The down side is the tradi-
tional socialization that we are aware of and
participated in. For many students, this is a

Search policy irks student leaders
A videotape made by a student government task force shows
that Jacksonville State University students are searched at football
games for alcohol and weapons, but most alumni, faculty and
parents are not. David Nichols, director of public safety, said the
screening policy at student entrances is a safety mechanism to
prevent weapons and alcohol from being carried into the stadium.
However, video footage showed that regulations were strictly
enforced at the two student entrances, while other entrances used
by alumni, faculty, staff and parents, were watched carelessly, if at
all. "My main concern is that students are being discriminated
against Student Government President Sam Witherspoon said.
Suicide attempts rise at UW
Campus security at the University of Wisconsin at River Falls
indicates an increase in the number of suicide attempts reported
over the past three years, although some university officials say the
numbers may not reflect an actual rise on the campus as a whole.
According to campus security's 1991 annual report, there were no
reported suicide attempts in 1989, three in 1990 and two in 1991.
There were no reports of completed suicides during those years.
Failed relationships, dysfunctional families and coping with the
added pressures of school all play a large role in a person's decision
to attempt suicide. "More often than not, there is intoxication or
some level of alcohol said Dan Ficek, a psychologist at the univer-
sity counseling center. "If suicide is already inherent in the mind
alcohol can take it to the next level of actually doing something

Judicial records should be released
The Student Government Association has
called for ECU's Honor Board to partially re-
lease its judicial records to the general public.
Proponents of the release state that this
change will make the all-student Board more
accountable for its actions than they are pres-
ently. Records would be released in whole, with
the exception of persons' names being changed
to "victim" and "assailant Proponents have
also voiced concerns about the legal experience
of members of the Board and theboard'sbasisas
an isolated judicial system.
Opponents of the change, who include
Dean of Students Ronald Speier, say that the
judicial records of students are protected under
the Buckley Amendment. Under this amend-
ment, the Department of Education can with-
draw federal funding from any schools that
release educational records to the public.
Speier has also said that he would consider
releasing a list of Honor Board decisions, but
would not release any information that could
jeopardize the anonymity of those involved. He
also believes that the current system is open.
Articles Vlland VIII of ECU's Judicial Rules
and Procedures seem to effectively rebut the
Buckley argument. They state that judicial
records are kept separate from educational
records (VII) and that suspension or dismissal
notification is not part of a student's permanent
academic record (VIII).
Honor Board proceedings and records
should be open to the public and press. Cur-
rently, individuals are not allowed into the
meetings unless it is at the bequest of the defen-
dant. Speier has said that people may talk to the
plaintiff and defendant outside the meeting and
ask the defendant if they may enter. This conces-
sion is not enough.
Our country bases its national judicial sys-
tem, on a whole, on the concepts of freedom and
openness. If ECU is to be seen as a microcosm of
society and a precursor to life in the working
world, then steps must be taken to reflect all of
society, not just bits and pieces.
University life and college experiences
should not be a buffet of society. The ECU
administration should not pick and choose what
matters students will have to deal with. It is
understood that college students are of the age
to act maturely and responsibly. This responsi-
bility and freedom may not be deserved by
some few individuals, but the majority of the
public accept it as a norm.

Why do we, as a people, seem
condemned to endure racial strife
and conflict? Any attempt to fully
answer that question would be a
mammoth undertaking, and no
single answer will satisfy every-
one. Even so, we must at least try
to understand itif wehopetoever
get the most from our democracy.
Our nation bears the scars of a
racist past. The Cherokee Trail of
Tears, Chinese "Coolies" laboring
on our railroads, the despised Irish
immigrants of New York and sla-
very are all the most bitter of
memories. Americans who liber-
ated the victims of Nazi concen-
tration camps came face-to-face
with racism at its most profane,
and our heroic, hard-fighting black
soldiers who contributed to the
liberation returned home to seg-
regated drinking fountains and the
back of the bus. But the enlarged
view of the world they gained gave
rise, eventually, to the American
civil rights movement, which
brought us integrated schools, af-
firmative action, the Civil Rights
Act and more.
But one unexpected conse-
quence of improved social equal-
ity was greater individual respon-
sibility, and the shock of it pushed
many Americans into a segrega-
tionist mentality. It is much easier
to blame someone else for one's
problems than it is to accept them
asone's own doing. This failure to
accept individual responsibility is
at the core of the racial conflicts in

sor of English at San Jose State
University, describes the use of

3 million), who are the product of
what Senator Patrick Moynihan
calls a "post-marital" society
where two-parent families have
disintegrated. This group of
people is partly the product of a
welfare system that shattered the
idea of individual responsibility
by rewarding such irresponsible
behavior as unwed teen mother-
hood . Today, only about 6 percent
of black children can expect to live
with both parents until the age of
17. Over 60 percent of black chil-
dren are born out of wedlock, up
from about 24 percent in 1965.
Their communities are saturated
with crime and drugs, and any
PittCounty MiddleSchool teacher
can tell you that these kids are, to
say the least, dysfunctional.
When we seek to displace re-
sponsibility, we tend to cling to
any argument that supports our
effort. As a result, truth becomes
less important than impact. His-
tory books and the media are all
guilty of a skewed or biased view
of fact. For example, we forget
tha t by 1830, abou 11,556 free black
masters in the deep South owned
7,188 slaves. In the Pointe Coupee
Parish of Louisiana alone, one out
of four free black families in 1830
was a slave holder. We ignore the
fact, that by 1991, two-thirds of
blacks could be characterized as
middle-class, that most black vic-
tims of police shooting fall to black
cops, that a 1991 Urban Institute
study found that blacks on the job
market were treated equally 73
percent of the time and in some
cases (though not as often as
whites) received preferential treat-
ment. Nobody tells us that the
Supreme Court has not permi tted
affirmative action to infringe on
many whites' rights, or that a sur-
vey by the Metropolitan Chicago
Information Center found that a
higher percentage of blacks than
whites thought African-Ameri-
cans have less "inborn ability to
learn than whites
The point here is, that no one
group is all villain or all victim,
and that we are more alike than
we are different. But when we al-
low ourselves to remain ignorant
of the whole story, we become
susceptible to such preposterous
influences as the Bush "Willie
Horton" and Helms "White
Hands, Black Hands" political ads.

It seems that all systems in
these countriesare crumbling: the
economy, the schools, family, po-
lice, the legal system. Theseyouths
are now free to voice their con-
temp t for the communist past and
protest against the system that
undeniably brought about this
bleak situation in the wake of its
collapse. They have joined right-
wing ultranationalists who cel-
ebrate their identity as Poles, Hun-
garians or Germans. It is here that
they find their voice that for so
long was kept mute.
But, illogically, they blame
much of the social depression on
"foreigners They expected pros-
perity from unification and instead
found the poverty of strangers all
around them. These asylum-seek-
ers, and in some cases, students,
are accused of stealing jobs from
natives and creating problems in
the reformulation of national
unity. But these refugeesoftenonly
work in menial positions in the
underground economy, in jobs
that Germans don't want.
This all reminds me of the ir-
rational belief some of the people
in this country have that many
Mexican refugees, Asians and
other minority groups are steal-
ing away jobs from "good, decent

Americans would find migrant
farm jobs, assembly line positions
and McDonald'scashier work be-
low them. Yet this is exactly what
the Germans are accusing asylum-
seekers of doing.
Even before any of the violent
outbreaks, the idea of German
nationalism and national pride
was suppressed as a bad idea. But
after the Berlin Wall fell, some
people went looking for the last
German party that seemed to have
openly championed nationalism.
That was the Nazis.
Police estimate that nation-
wide, there are about 6,500 neo-
Nazi skinheads ina German popu-
lation of 80 million. Skins, for the
most part, say they are against
criminal elements. They tout them-
selves as benefactors to their
people and want to let these people
know that they are on their side.
However, one cannot ignore
the many violent acts that have
been committed by the hands of
skinheads. Their mistake is in the
belief that the non-German asy-

set the record straight.
Let me first say that it is fair-

could our memberships and the

common? Just because we offer a
chance to all student members to
purchase bowl tickets just like any
other Pirate Club member does
not mean we guarantee a bowl
game. To blame the coverage in

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
By Jim Shamlin
Sports teams' names meant to inspire, not degrade Socialism and freedom cannot be reconciled
To the Editor
Indians are not victims of
racism in the sports. The names
of teams were picked for
inspirational purposes � not
racism. Take the GTE commercial
on television for example: "Colts,
Lions, Buccaneers, Sea hawks.
After they chose their
inspirational names and so
on. The reason why teams like
Cleveland, Atlanta, Washington
and others chose to be an Indian
was because of the fighting spirit
of their culture and sense of
loyalty to one another.
Look at the ECU Pirates. Pi-
rates are despicable people who
steal and plunder and then some-
times murder their victims. Is this
what we are? We use the name
because it instills some fear be-
cause of our fighting spirit, not
because of what a pirate really is.
Another prime exampleare
the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
Is that not prejudice with a man
running around in a leprechaun
outfit? No. They use the spirit of
Irish people who oppose the En-
glish rule (or whomever the hell
they are fighting) and the lepre-
chaun as an icon for the school.
Another reason for naminga
team wasbecause of the location of
the team and school. We are near
the North Carolina inlets where
many pirates (such as Blackbeard)
anchored their boats and hid from
the law in the 16th, 17th and 18th
centuries. Look where
Washington, D.C Syracuse (to
use your example) and Cleveland
are. Lookatthese teams: Wisconsin
Badgers, Michigan Wolverines and
Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Look at
where they are located. Were there
any native blacks or Hispanics
living in America when the white
man came over? I think not.
Animals rights activists
should be in an uproar also. They
might say, "not all badgers,
wolverines, bears and seahawks
are ferocious. That's not
representing them correctly See
how ridiculous thisgets. If people
were truly racist, then when they
were choosing a name for their
team why would they want to be
called something they are not?
Would a young ball player who
might be a KKK member want to
join the San Antonio Spies or the
North Carolina Tar Babies? Get
real. If I were starting a college
and were racist, I sure as hell
would not want my mascot to be
of another color or race.
So the next time you go
flying off the handle, look at the
facts and then write about it. Be
more journalistic in the future and
� on the editorial page. The
section you used is to discuss the
game and to preview the two
teams in detail. It is not to run
rough-shod over and definitely
not for your personal war on

Reason behind cultural movement misunderstood
To the Editor:
I have many things I would
like to say to Mike Joseph, but 1
will limit it to just a few. First,
learn geography! Egypt and
Mesopotamia are miles apart.
Mesopotamia is located between
the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in
whatis present-day Iran and Iraq.
Egypt, well Egypt is on the
Mediterranean Sea, not even close
to Mesopotamia. The Fertile
Crescent is an area stretching from
the cradle of civilization in
Mesopotamia to the Nile River
valley, so while Egypt can be
considered part of the Fertile
Crescent, it is a distinctive region
when compared to Mesopotamia.
In ancient Egypt, there were
many black Egyptian nobles since
the entire continent of Africa,
North and South, tended to mix,
mostly through migration and
trade. Perhaps you will recall the
story of the Queen of Sheba who
met with Solomon and had at least
one child with him. The Queen of
Sheba, ruler of a glorious African
empire, was none other than the
Queen of Ethiopia. There are
current theories concerning the
birth of civilization and who the
ancestors of mankind were, so to
make broad generalizations that
to claim Egyptian descent is
incorrect. Also, if African-
Americans cannot claim
descendancy from the "supposed
origins of humankind wheredid
the Africans originate from? Or
better yet, what are they?
It seems that Joseph has
misunderstood, as have many
others, the reasoning behind the
new African-American cultural
movement. In order for a cultural
identity to be established, people
need to recognize their heritage.
This is easier for whites simply
because documents and records
were kept of their migration.
There are few records of the
African migration. Why? Because
Africans were forcibly taken from
their homeland and the people
who did this did not record the
names and addresses of each
person. Inspiteof this, the African
culture is a very rich one and
should not be diminished by
people who do not know
geography or history.

Return of traditional values would hinder AIDS threat
To the Editor:
If condoms are the answer,
it is only fair to ask if condoms
can really be trusted. The New
in vol. 316, no. 21, that "condom
failure for AIDS virus
transmission ranges from 17
percent to 30 percent of
heterosexual couples over a two
yearperiod No would describe
as 'safe flying' an airline which
hadacrash rate of 17to30 percent.
Why the double standard when
it comes to sex? In truth, this
course of action is, at best,
temporarily lesslethal. Doubling
the time (four years), produces
an AIDS seroconversion rate of
from 34 to 60 percent. With time,
non-monogamous persons or
those who sex associatesare non-
monogamous will contract AIDS.
Goerdert cites an AIDS
seroconversion rate of 17percent,
or one in six. This is the same
'safety' ratio as Russian roulette
playerswhoload a revolver. With
multiple sex associates, AIDS and
condoms, the achievement of death
is slower, though no less certain
And Dr. Robert Kolodny at
the Masters and Johnson Research
Organization has stated: "Apart
from absolute sexual monogamy
with a seronegative partner, there
is no such thing as safe sex As
early as the 1987 National AIDS
Conference, Dr. Lasse R. Brathen
said in his lecture session that: "The
main issue is that condoms have a
failure rate when it comes to
pregnancies of about 10 percent,
and a woman can get pregnant
only a few days each year, but
probably can be infected by the
virus every day throughout the
year. Safe sex does not exist We
all know that even latex condoms
with spermicide will not always
prevent pregnancy, and a sperm is
500 times larger than the HIV virus.
We have enough trouble stopping
sperm, let us not pretend that this
is an effective means of con trolling
As human beings, we have
the unique ability to make moral
choices that affect our lives. I
believe this type of self control is
not only feasible, but it is a matter
of life and death. It is time for a
new sexual revolution�one that
stops buying into the lies our
generation has so easily gobbled
up. Remember � condoms fail,
abstinence never has.

out of being the bearer of bad
news. Really, I gain no benefit
from anyone's moral behavior.

American life seen as bleak without imposed order
To the Editor:
This is in response to
Richard Poteat's letter in The East
Carolinian on Nov. 5. Yes, it is
true, we could maximize personal
freedom by eliminating leaders.
The question is, would anyone
really want to? I have never
carefully considered what the
"founding fathers" intended for
this nation, and I do not actually
care to. When this nation was
formed, it was sparsely populated
It isn't either of these things
anymore, so those plans could
hardly be realistic today. It may
sound odd, but there is a
subversiveelementin this society
(only one in 100, I'm sure) who
feel that there is more to be val-
ued in the world than personal
freedom. They actually make an
interesting point or two.
For instance, whileonedoes
usually have a right or freedom to
better oneself, one does not have
the right to better oneself at
another's expense. If this were not
true, there would be no incentive
to try to better oneself through
work, as it wou Id be easier to better
oneself through stealing, and there
would be no guarantee that one
could hang onto the product of
one's work. We must also value
the freedom of others to better
Poteat's claim that America
is based on natural law is rather
interesting. False, but interesting.
Natural law is the lack of an order
imposed by an outside power. If
America were relly based on that,
we wou Id ha ve no need of a consti-
tution. Wild animals have lives
based on natural law, for example,
and they do fine without a consti-
tution. Thomas Hobbes described
that sort of life as, "poor, solitary,
nasty, brutish and short With-
out some kind of imposed order,
or leader, life gets very bleak.
There is no money, no agriculture
and no industry. There is also,
Mr. Poteat, no history.
I am not asking Poteat to
dispense with his tired old argu-
ment. It gives those of us who
know better something to do. All
I'd like him to do is consider the
and see if it creates a world he
thinks anyone would enjoy.
Restrictions on freedom are not
designed to protect some inferior
element in our society, as Mr.
Poteat seems to think. Without
them, there would be no society.
Whether we admit itor not, weall
need the protection these
Response to the two-part
editorial on socialism that ran in
the Nov. 10 and 12 editions of The
East Carolinian has ranged from
obscene phone calls to published
editorials. Regardless of the
medium, the message has been
the same � there is a great deal of
protest, but littleactual refutation.
By and large, proponents of
socialism exalt it on the basis of
the "social goods" it provides. The
evidence, across the board, ispritna
facie. Thorough and conscientious
analysis demonstrates that every
social good necessitates a social
evil; in no case does the end justify
Proponents of socialized
medicine proclaim its virtues,
regardless of its past failures. In
an argument, they claim that the
crippled state of the Canadian
national medical program is the
result of transition � given time,
things will get better.
This is the same pathetic plea
President Bush used in reference
to the economy four years ago �
"wait and see In the meantime,
the economy steadily declined.
The same has happened and will
continue to happen with socialized
medicine. Conceded, Canada's
medical system is in a state of
transition � thedyingprocessisa
dramatic transition marked by
In the same style of ad
ignoratum argument, socialism's
proponents hail the victories of
European medicine � but what
victories are these? What major
medical advance has any
European, living in Europe, made
since the Curies' discovery of
radium (and that was before
socialism)?If the stateof medicine
in socialist Europe is so advanced,
then why do European researchers
come to America to seek funding?
Why do European medical
students come to America for thei r
training? Why isn't it the other
There is no logical answer to
these questions if one accepts the
premise of socialized medicine. In
fact, medical rrea tmentisshliavail-
ablein socialist countries only be-
cause they can feed, as parasites
do, off the living, growing state of
private sector medicine that exists
in the United States.
Most people are drawn to
socialism in an effort to preserve
human rights, claiming that
socialist programs help the needy
� but the help socialism offers is
only the temporary kind. From
the adage, "Give a man a fish and
he'll eat for a day; teach a man to
fish and he'll eat for a lifetime
socialism is giving away fish, and
this charity cuts both ways.
For society at large, feeding
the needy requires a constant
supply offish�a constant supply
of tax money to pay for their
temporary welfare. The socialists'
response to the problems of
homelessness and hunger is to
create a money pit, an expensive
short-term pa tch. Worse yet, it is a
growing concern, a state of
constant stagnation like the
economic conditions in the Roman
Empire prior to its collapse or in
modern-day Ireland, where the
needy outnumber the working.
For the individuals on the
dole, charity is a hand-out, not a
hand up from economic
stagnation. Those on the dole
remain on the dole. Food and
shelter, while necessary in the
short run, do not provide the skills
or initiative necessary to maintain
life. The ultimate outcome of
socialist "help" is decay � the
poor receiveonly their basic needs
� they are reduced to the level of
mere existence like animals in a
zoo. Civil rights leaders have often
criticized social programsasa form
of slavery�the rich man's way of
keeping the poor man down. How
can anyone call this a public
The primary reason that
people fall into poverty in the first
place is a lack of survival skills �
skills a socialized educational
system failed to provide. Public
schools havealways been inferior
to private ones�and the funding
taxes, lneffect, the average citizen
is f( ireed to pay for education in a
public school because the
EachsrudentatECU has paid
or will pay $5,000 per academic year
in taxes in addition to our regular
tuition � were that money under
ourown control, we would be free
to choose the benefit of a good
compromise of a mediocre one.
Even for the economically
closes doors � private
organizations, paying taxes for
public education, no longer offer
as many scholarshi ps as they used
to. Instead, the government uses
their money, dispensing it on the
unrewarded because funding is
available for the needy, not for the
able. The result is a high drop-out
rate among the needy who aren't
able, and the stagnation of the able
who were unable to find funding
because they didn't meet the
government's criteria for being
needy. This is the "public good"
of socialized education.
In the socialist mindset,
compromise is a necessity � if a
program is to exist as a parasite, it
must have a host. A "mixed"
economy, such as ours, shows the
dangerof that sort of compromise.
The state of the economy has not
been strengthened by the nflux of
socialist elements over the past 20
years � it has been weakened,
bled almost to death � and like a
dark ages alchemist, the peddlers
of socialism think the sickness can
be cured by bleeding society alittle
If we are to revitalize our
country, or if we are to rebuild a
stronger nation in its ruins, we
must come to realize that there
can be no compromise between
socialism and freedom, whether
economic or personal. The only
compromise between life and
death is "dying" �and that is the
state of America today.

(This is for entertainment purposes only. Please No wagering or oversensitive special interest groups. Elvis is dead.)
Well, once again the Pirates have proven to
be a team that is impossible to second-guess.
After I predicted that the Pirate offensive unit
would erupt in an explosion of offensive excite-
ment against Arkansas St Steve Logan and his
team came out with a victory that could have
been used as a sleeping aid. The Pirate team, led
by quarterback Sean McConnell, gained only
172 passingyards and had little tooffer a measly
crowd in Ficklen Stadium. It may have been
gratifying to see the Pirate running game revi-
talized by Junior Smith, but I'm sure mat the
25,072 people in the stadium would have been
far better entertained going to see TJracula
But, in the words of the immortal Steve Logan,
"There's no such thing as a bad win
The Pirates must prepare to further that
philosophy Saturday against Memphis State,
because they must take the Tigers to a shootout
to have a chance to win. The stakes, the first pair
of back-to-back winning seasons in nearly a
decade, are higher than in any game all season.
A great deal of ECU's future recruiting success
will rideon their ability to put forth this winning
Make no mistake about it, if Saturday's
game was played on paper, we would lose
badly. The Tigers haveoneof the mostferocious
defenses in the nation, especially against the
run. It is overly stingy, allowing only 17.4 points
a game. It surrenders only 100 yards rushing
and 151 passing yards a game. MSU out-punts
us, out-kicks us, turns the ball over less than we
do, and gets more points off its defense. This
game is probably the toughest for the Pirates
since the opener against Syracuse.
In order to pull off an upset on the road, the
Pirates must have phenomenal contributions
from its passing game. Firstly, Michael Ander-
son must play this week, and must keep the ball
in the Pirates' possession. If he throws the inter-
ceptions he has in previous outings, the Pirates
are doomed; Memphis State will never look
back. He must keep the offense moving, and
conserve the energy of the Pirate defense.
Secondly, the Pirates must have rushing
productivity from Junior Smith. He has the
potential in this game to gain the 72 yards he
needs for a 1,000 yard season, and this may go
hand-in-hand with winning the game. The Pi-
rateoffensive line must open theholes for Junior
to run through, or his hopes of joining the Pirate
record books will vanish, as willhischancetobe
on a winning team.
ECU's defense must keep the team close,

To err is human and to forgive is
divine, however in modern day America
we're the rich gets richer and the poorer
has fewer, the time has come for this
assistant editor to join the ranks of pizza
makers and martini shakers.
I, as a journalist, have lived by and
on occasions died by, the philosophy of
writing or reporting the events as I see
them. I've tried not to sugar-coat the
facts or the events surrounding any
story, therefore I have acquired my fair
share of anri-Chas readers.
To these people I simply say: even-
tually, life goes onif the reality of liv-
ing in America proves too much for any
one reader to accept or understand, then
it simply becomes just a matter for the
reader to work through it by him or
herself. As a sports writer, it is my re-

integrity of these people with whom I
Here at East Carolina, life is merely
a tempest in a tea cup in comparison to
the events which shape our world ev-
eryday. I've tried to use my experiences
of European and Asian cultures to bring a
warm and meaningful perspective to TEC
readership. I feel that I have failed in my
attempts to lessen the effects of cultural
hatred, bigotry and racism here at ECU, so
it's only appropriate that I step down as the
assistant sports editor of The East Carolinian.
My brief stint as assistant sports editor
has been filled with countless memorable
moments as well as encounters which could
have been handled in a more mature and
appropriate manner. So in my final swan
song I would like to thank the people and
agencyies that have made my job a lot easier
and seemingly worth while during these
First and foremost a special thanks to
former Sports Editor Mike Martin and as
well as current editor Robert S. Todd for
their confidence and respect which they
have shown toward me as a writer and not
as a former employee of Uncle Sam.
While of course, the most single impor-
tant element behind any agency is their
administrative staff. I would like to thank
Mrs. Deborah Daniel for the sharing of her
knowledge of TEC and for just being one of

had the pleasure of working directly with.

Tony Davis has great responsi-
bility waiting for him next football
season. Next year, he must captain
a defense that will end this year as
one of the worst in Division 1 foot-
ball. He must be the on-fieid leader
the Pirate defense will need to re-
ment. He must show an example of
aggression, tempered with cool-
headed reactions and intelligence.
Davis leads this year's team
with 113 tackles, 73 of those solo.
When Senior outside linebacker
Jerry Dillon was sidelined with a
thumb injury, Davis assumed his
position as vocal leader in practice
and on the field, but he said he is

attitude to the playing field.

situations where I have to pull
back and realize I'm not on the
field, because through sports
they say its okay to be aggres-
sive when you're playing, but
not when you aren't he said.

good job at keeping aggression
in check. "Monitoring yourself
