Ecternity alumni form board of
advisors to oversee problems
By Joe Horst
In the fall semester of 1992, ECU
temporarily suspended the Tau Kappa
Epsilon fraternity from university activi-
ties for a week after a pledge member fell
out of a house window and sustained
On Oct. 19,1992, a 20-year-old stu-
dent fell from the second floor window of
the fraternity house. The student had re-
turned time and time again after being
escorted back to his dorm room by his
fellow fraternity members. ECU's Dean
of Students office investigated the inci-
dent, along with the local alumni, and
decided on the present action that is cur-
rently being undertaken.
In the fall semester of 1992, the uni-
versity placed the fraternity on probation
because of an open party that was held at
the house. This event, and "other recent
behavioral problems by the chapter com-
pounded the need to take serious and
immediate action against the chapter

After the incident, members of Tau
Kappa Epsilon's alumni formed a board
of advisors mat would work in conjunc-
tion with a set of provisional executive
members. The board of advisors would
supervise the chapter until they felt that
the fraternity members could manage fra-
ternity matters on their own.
According to Charles Blake, chapter
advisor, the incident involving the pledge
member was not the only reason thaHhe-
alumni stepped in to assist.
"There was no specific incident that
brought it the assistance about Blake
said. "This incident just tipped it over the

tional headquarters mat the fraternity re-

King as a role model

Martin Luther King Jr. provides
a better role model to African-Ameri-
cans than Malcolm X, said Clayborne
Carson, of the rising popularity of
Malcolm X and the enduring quality
of King in a presentation in Mendenhall
on Jan. 14.
Carson is a professor of history
at Stanford and senior editor of the
papers of Martin Lufrier King Jr.
"Malcolm insisted that African-
Americans should be prepared to use
any means necessary to bring to exist-
ence a more just world Carson said.
"But Martin reminded us that the

Thursday's lecture was one of
the activities scheduled atECU tocom-
memorate the birthday of Martin

Carson said that he attempts in
his studies of King to put them into a
context that is relevant today.
"Now we're in the era of what
could be caiied the Malcolm phenom-

cal thought of the period after World
The importance of King is being
played down by the charismatic influ-
ence of Malcolm, Carson said. Kingwas
the predominant black leader of his time.
"Martin and Malcolm are seen
as irreconcilable and opposite ends of
the spectrum he said. "This is sim-
plistic and misleading. Their views
cannot be neatly summarized by brief
quotations in famous speeches. They
both change over time as they draw
from their experiences.

Audit finds community
colleges falling short
Newspaper served subpoena
The Arizona Daily Wildcat was served a subpoena, as
was the University of Arizona police department, de-
manding that photographs taken at a protest be given to a
physician who was arrested. Attorneys for Dr. Robin
Silver of Phoenix wanted the photographs to prove Silver
was at the Oct. 12 demonstration as a professional photog-
rapher, not as a protester, the Arizona Daily Wildcat
reported. The Daily Wildcat plans to fight the subpoena.
Silver was arrested at the Oct. 12 demonstration during a
protest of University of Arizona's Mount Graham project.
Protesters claim the construction site threatens a species of
red squirrels and desecrates an area sacred to the San
Carlos Apache tribe.
Lesbian sorority seeks recognition
Two University of Florida students who want to form
a sorority primarily for lesbians are seeking recognition
from the National Panhellenic council, which has not
added a new sorority since 1951. Agnes Garcia and Paige
Marsala, both juniors, told the Florida Independent Alliga-
tor that such a group would "unite women and encourage
them to fight sexism and other prejudices Garcia and
Marsala admit it's unlikely the group will be recognized
by the National Panhellenic Council. In order to have
national standing, sororities must have chapters at univer-
sities throughout the country for at least 13 years.
AIDS testing prompts discussion
AIDS testing among students makes candid talks
with lovers about twice as likely, but almost two-thirds of
those surveyed still don't use condoms, a recent study
revealed. Researchers asked 2,196 heterosexual students
receiving health care at the University of California if they
were interested in HIV education, and the 435 who said yes
agreed to be divided into three groups. One group re-
ceived no educational materials, another received only
educational materials, and the last received a free HIV test
and educational materials. Among those who received
AIDS tests and education, the proportions who asked
about their partner's HIV status rose from 31 to 56 percent.
"The findings raise questions about the effectiveness of
current AIDS education the American College of Physi-
cians reported in a recent publication.

King's dream must survive for future
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice
He grew up in a family that nurtured him
with love and kindness, tempered with the
need for discipline and community.
He excelled in school, entering college
several years earlier than normal. He received
his degree at Morehouse College, going on
toearna Ph.D. at Crozer Theological Semi
He began his civil rights career
as pastor of the Dexter Avenue
Baptist Church, coming to the
South in an effort to change the
Jim Crow laws so prevalent at
He emerged victorious in
various campaigns, such as the
Montgomery Bus Boycott, the
Campaign in Birmingham, the
March on Washington and his
triumphant entry into Memphis.
He died a man who refused
to let oppression continue, a man
who wanted to see America
stand as the great moral example
of the world He left behind him
a following that would continue
his work into the next three de-
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
served, and still continues to serve, as a shining
example to all that one person can make a
difference. King's notoriety or verbal ability
was not what made him a great statesman;
rather, he has achieved immortality by his re-
fusal to separate morality from politics. In a
time where political corruption is not con-
demned, if not condoned, King proves that a
person can captivate a nation with morality.
King's goals were a three-step process:
abolishing Jim Crow laws, putting an end to
prejudice and discrimination and ending vio-
lence and poverty on a national, if not global,
scale. Jim Crow is virtually nonexistent today,
but the latter two still remain to be conquered.
We need to see ourselves through
King's eyes: color-blind. Different skin
pigmentation does not make us lesser or
better individuals; we all must struggle
to survive on a daily basis. Only when
we are joined together can we fight the
multitude of common enemies that
all people face.
Poverty and war do not dis-
tinguish between races. In two
World Wars, white men died side
by side with black men. Even to-
day, blacks and whites are fighting
together to establish peace in Bosnia
and the Middle East. Racism f allsby
the wayside in this situation; may
we all find some lesson in this fact.
As we look back on this holi-
day, we must see it for what it
truly symbolizes. Not a day off
from school or work, not some
commercialized event; a day
where we honor a man who
dedicated his entire life to eradi-
cating the many injustices he
King has shown that racism and injustice
can be fought and conquered. If we live our
lives as we would have others live theirs and
show our children these same lessons, with
hope we can soon witness a nation that disre-
gards color as a basis of acceptance.
Again, one person can make a difference.
Make yours today by following in Dr.
Martin Luther King's footsteps: fight injustice
and discrimination by living well.
By Amy E. Wirtz
Every public action affects environment
You can change the world.
It's true. Everything you do �
from the food you eat to the type
of detergent you use�makes the
world a better or worse place in
which to live. Every time you open
your wallet, you, in essence, cast a
vote "for" or "against" the envi-
Now, I'm sure that some of
you are sick to death of hearing
about saving theenvironment, but
unless you realize your individual
impact and how simple it is to
change bad habits, it will be a
matter of years until all nature as
you and I see it vanishes.
You have more power than
you know. First and foremost, the
marketplace � whether the su-
permarket, hardware store or ap-
pliance showroom � is not a de-
mocracy. It doesn't take 51 per-
cent of people "voting" in any one
direction to affect environmental
change. Far from it. In fact, a rela-
tive handful of shoppers can send
shock waves through an industry
simply by making good "green"
Why all of this "green
power" in the past few years? Well,
the growing concern over the en-
vironment iscertainly a factor, but
that's not the whole story. Part of
the answer has to do with the fact
that as consumers, Americans are
going through a transformation.
We are suddenly enlightened and
dare we say, empowered? When
it comes to protecting our bodies

willing than ever before to take
matters into our own hands � to
stand up and be counted.
We, as Americans, are mov-
ing gradually from the "me" gen-
eration into the "we" generation.
Self-interest certainly hasn't dis-
appeared, but it has been tem-
pered by the fact that after a de-
cade or so of "feel-good" national
leadership (i.e. George Bush and
his Neanderthal chumps), many
of us don't feel good about the
world around us. Many have given
up on the government's ability to
solve the problems for us. As a
result, all we have left to count on
Many problems have be-
come more personal, more wide-
spread and much more closer to
home. That certainly is the cr se
with the environment. Environ-
mental problems are no longer lim-

Generally, being a green con-
sumer can save you money. Re-
searchers found that on the aver-
age, consumers were actually pay-

some environmentally sound
products do cost more than their
harmful counterparts. I've found

Government fails to protect citizens' rights
The East Carolinian
The United States is one of
the first nations founded on the
principle that the function of gov-
ernment is to protect the rights of
citizens. Until then, the govern-
ment was often an oppressive
power that ruled the people in-
stead of served mem; mat limited
their freedom rather than pro-
tected it; that managed citizens as
if they were slaves rather than free
Correspondingly, the Bill of
Rights is one of the first docu-
ments created by a government to
guarantee certain rights to its citi-
zens. The first 10 Amendments
are, in effect, promises that certain
rights will not be violated. T. us is
a complete inversion in the his-
tory of political thought, but it is
an inversion that the government
has failed to maintain.
What were once amend-
ments are now broken promises.
Every right that the Constitution
guarantees has been revoked,
abolished or abridged � with
the possible exception of the third
amendment, the bit about hous-
ing soldiers in private homes �
and every freedom mat remains
has strings attached. It is no
longer government that must
operate within narrow bound-
aries in its duty to citizens, but
citizens who must live within nar-
row boundaries in obedience of
The abolition of citizens'
rights has been a slow process,
almost imperceptible � but in
comparing the government of to-
day with the one prescribed by the
Constitution, one will find they
are only vaguely similar. One of
the prime causes of this perver-
sion is the government itself.
Corruption in government
is widespread: while no branch of
government can claim innocence,
the most corrupt branch, by far, is
the legislative branch: the Senate
and House of Representatives.
Slowly, but effectively, the legis-
lative branch has undermined the
systems of checks and balances,
allowing itself to run rampantly
out of control. A few occurrences
demonstrate the degree of corrup-
tion, namely the widespread abuse
of government-controlled check-
ing accounts, and periodically, leg-
islature voting itself a monumen-
tal pay raise. The corruption,how-
ever, runs much deeper.
It is not within the power, or
the will, of the government to cor-
rect itself. On the campaign trail,

Bill Clinton firmly demanded that
the legislative branch take budget
cuts. Shortly thereafter, he stood,
almost cowering among members
of Congress, and said that their
budget would not decrease. This
demonstrates the impotence of the
executive branch � and the judi-
cial branch is helpless to do any-
thing until a case isbroughtbefore
mem. Congress is literally above
Legislature has not simply
limited (or destroyed) the power
of the other branches of govern-
ment; it has usurped power, tak-
ing for itself the powers of all.
Constant overturning of Presiden-
rial vetoes has made the executive
branch unable to check any abuse
of power and the refusal of the
line-item veto has denied the ex-
ecu rive branch the power to weed
out graft. Furthermore, ad-hoc
committees have denied the ex-
ecutive branch its power to carry
out the laws.
Congress has also taken con-
trol over the judicial branch. Abus-
ing its power to review appoin-
tees, legislature controls the per-
sonnel who compose the judicial
branch, lining the benches with
cronies who will promote the in-
terests of Congress rather man fair
judges who will revoke oppres-
sive laws. Furthermore, through
Senate hearings and other pro-
ceedings, Congress has taken law
out of the courtroom entirely and
put it under its own direct control.
By far, one of the greatest
assaults on freedom is the depart-
mentalization of law � the cre-
ation of commissions, bureaus,
departments and other agencies
that operate beyond the control of
the executive and judicial
branches. These agencies have the
power to pass laws, carry them
out and punish offenders without
any interference from the Consti-
ment. Overlooked by most citi-
zens, these agencies are the most
flagrant violators of citizens'
rights. Consider the following ex-
� The Department of Agri-
culture dictates the crops that uv
dependent farmers may produce'
places limits on their production,
restricts distribution and controls
prices in a supposedly "free" mar-
� The Federal Communica-
tion Commission abridges die free-
dom of speech by restricting civil-
ian access to the airwaves and by
revoking the licenses of stations
that broadcast material to which
� The Food and Drug Ad-
ministration denies citizens ac-
cess to effective treatments, of-
ten used overseas, and delays
the marketing of safe and benefi-
Each of these agencies was
formed for a legitimate purpose
� the Department of Agricul-
ture was meant to advise farm-
ers, the FCC was meant to pro-
tect the rightsofbroadcastersand
the FDA was meant to protect
citizens from quackery � but
each of these agencies has over-
stepped its boundaries. Each of
them is now the destroyer of the
rights it was founded to protect.
These three are not excep-
tional cases of corruption � they
are mere examples of the abuse of
power that results when any por-
tion of government is allowed to
operate outside the system of
checks and balances. They illus-
trate the sort of perversion of
power that occurs in virtually ev-
ery government agency, and on a
smaller scale, the kind of corrup-
tion that has taken place in the
body that has created mem�the
Even though the Constitu-
tion has been invalidated, its guar-
antees revoked by a branch of gov-
ernment that has run amuck, there
is a right within the Declaration of
Independence that Congress can
never legislate away � the right
to alter or abolish any government
that becomes destructive of tine
rights of its citizens. Legislature
hasnotyet taken away our right to
vote. While that right still exists,
wemustclean House, and Senate,
with paper�but if ever that right
is legislated away, we must clean

Native American Organization
re-establishes on campus
By Pam Revels
The Native American Organization of ECU was
created to boost awareness of the heritage and culture
of the American Indian.
Theorganizarion,asdefined in the Student Hand-
book, was established "to provide fellowship for Na-
tive Americans enrolled at ECU; to involve members
in learning experiences about the culture and history
of Native Americans; and to provide peer counseling
and tutorial services when needed
When the organization disbanded last year, these
goals wereabandoned. Lack of participation and gen-
eral apathy had made the group weak and unstable.
Members had stopped attending meetings and events,
eventually causing the organization to dissolve.
Enter Kim Sampson, a junior transfer student
from Louisburg College, who also happens to be a
Native American. She is currently working to reorga-
nize the Native American Organization and make it
moreactive club.The main thing she islookingfor this
year is the stability that the organization lacked in the
Sampson addressed this issue in theorganization's
first meeting, which was held Jan. 14 in Mendenhall
Student Center. "Thereare85-87NativeAmericanson
campus. We neti o be more active and do more
together as a group she said.
Sampson suggested several changes in the
organization's constitution to help alleviate the stabil-
ity problem. Currently, the constitution states that
members must attend only three meetings per semes-
ter. Sampson suggested encouraging members to par-
ticipate more often by raising this requirement to five
or six meetings per semester.
Thequestion of the frequency of meetings wasalso
raised.Theconstitution says there should be twomeet-
ings a month. Sampson feels this number should be
increased to bring group members together more fre-
The members must vote on these twosuggestions.
If the changes are passed, hopefully they will aid in
producing a stable and healthy organization.
The group also needs to raise consciousness of its
existence. The Native American Organization wants to
make itself well known on campus. Plans are under-
way for a T-shirt design and a publicity committee for
advertising, to develop fundraising programs and to
get involved in campus events. "When the scfuxil has
activities where minorities come together, we'll be in
the group Sampson assured.
There are several major events already listed on
the organization's agenda. One is the Adult Unit)'

Miserable weather d idn't seem to bother the stand-

Greenville Pitt County Queen Jan. 14.
Jennifer West, a senior at ECU, walked away with
the crown, the title and a $1,000 academic scholarship.

are "a sport for women

talents may be she said.
Individual awards were also presented at the
pageant. Francis Holcomb was named Miss Conge-

Jennifer West won both the talent and swimsuit award.
Alexis Hickman was named second runner up, fol-

Double Dare (based on the Nickel-

There will be trivia questions, physi-

the messiest show on television.
East Carolina's version of the

which teams will compete in a ques-

and poor free throw shooting weakened
the Pirate attack. ECU showed promise
of a comeback, during the first half, but
fell short as the Eagles soared to the lead
and on to victory.
American ranked last in field goal

centage and in scoring margin in the
CAA, but managed to lead the Pirates in
each category, making the Eagle's im-
provement and a decline in the Pirates
American's coach, Chris Knoche,
credited their win to guard Brian
Gilgeous' efforts in containing Lester
Lyonsand leading American'soffensive
attack. He also credited Michael
Blackwell's and Bryan Palmer's good
efforts off the bench.
Three-point shots were the sig-
nificant factorinthisgame and helped
American expand their lead in the
second half. Gilgeous and Palmer
both scored 11 points in the second
half. With 10 minutes left in regula-
tion, their lead soared from two to 17
and by the end of the game the Eagles
increased the lead to 25, leaving some
ECU fans embarrassed.

That would be remarkable for a anchise

They hired Billy McKinney as player
personnel director but gave him no author-

learn that he couldn't accept losing. Neither
made it past the team's second season.
Seduced by the relative success of their
first season�their 22-60 record led the four

contention. So they drafted immobile7-footer
