ECU student wins leadership award
By Jennifer Wardrep
Susan Stewart, recipient of the 1992
Martin Luther King Jr. Student Leader-

honor and a surprise. Her award was
part of a ceremony held Monday that
was sponsored by Alpha Phi Alpha fra-
ternity in honor of the slain civil rights
Awards were also presented to the
African-American students in each class

Stewart, 19, also received the GP A award
for the sophomore class.

Admissions Marion Sykes calls "the graying of
Though the numbers for the spring semes-
ter have yet to be tabulated, population figures for
last fall show an increase of nearly 10 percent in
non-traditional students from the previous year.
During last semester, 709 part-time and 1049 full-
time returning adult undergraduates enrolled in
classes at ECU. An additional 738 graduate stu-
dents fell into the returning adult category.
Dr. Lucy Wright, Assistant Dean for Stu-
dent Development and Director of Special Popu-
lations, was quick to point out that the increasing
numbers were partly attributable to the general
increase in enrollment of all types of students.
"The increase seems proportionate to the increase

Cold weather did not stop many students, faculty and Greenville residents from participating in a very solemn
candlelight march from Christenbury to Mendenhall to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jrs birthday.
ECU students' grades remained steady
during the fall semester of 1992, despite the
slight increase in last fall's average SAT score.
Last semester's average SAT score
jumped from 889 to 900.
"If it went up 700 to 900, you would
expect a big jump, but with it only 889 to 900
you can't expect but so much said Ken
Lowe of Planning and Institutional Research.
The average semester grade point aver-
age of freshmen for the fall of 1991 was 2.04,
for the fall of 1992 it moved to 2.09. Sopho-
more and junior classes kept the same GPA
while seniors moved from 2.65 to 2.69.
Students earning academic honors at
ECU during the fall represent 95 of the state's
100 counties, 40 states and the District of
Columbia and 18 foreign countries.
A total of 3,953 students earned places
on the university's official honors list for the
semester, with 448 students on the
Chancellor's List, 1252 on the Dean's List and
2,253 on the Honor Roll.

Textbook buyingand sellingatECU
has changed little in the pastyears, some-
thing that most students don't look for-
ward to at the close of each semester.
During the last two weeks of each
semester, both University Book Exchange
(UBE)and the StudentStores get ready to
open their doors to long lines of students
trying to sell their textbooks back. Both
stores hold the same policy regarding
prices when students sell their books
When a student sells a book that he
or she purchased as new, at the time of
selling, it is then considered a used book.
Both bookstores will buy the book back
for one-half of the retail (or new) price. If
that book is to be used in the following
semester, the store will price the used
book at three-quarters of the new price
and then sell it to a new student.
Theamount of ti mesa bookis used
has no effect on the used price when
another student buys it A book used by
one person will have the same price as
the same book that has been used by 10
differentpeople.Thestoreswill buy back
a used book at one-half the retail price
and follow the selling policy listed above.
Liz Veytia, textbook manager at
UBE, said that the price the store will pay
depends on a number of things.
"We will buy back bx)ks until our
limit is reached Veytia said. "The price
will then drop to a wholesale, or ship-

occurs in the book buy-back process is

Mug Shots to offer
By Warren Sumner
ECU students and local Greenville resi-
dents will soon have a new outlet for their
nightime entertainment. MMBInc, thecom-
pany that attempted to open a nightclub in
the Blount-Harvey building on the Evans St
mall in late 1992, has finally succeeded in
entering the nightclub business with their
takeoverof the buildingthatcurrently houses
the New Deli. The company plans to open
entertainment to patrons from ECU and the
surrounding Greenville area.
The owners of the company, Alex
Barletta and Luigi Marchionne, say the prob-
lems they encountered with the city in their
attempt to open the Blount-Harvey building
has prepared them for the opening of

Student removes picture from exhibit
The spot where Colorado State University art student Heath
Johnson displayed a painting now has a letter from the Children's
Television Workshop, the producer of "Sesame Street hanging
in its place. Johnson had painted "Sesame's Treat which de-
picted the muppet characters Bert and Ernie in an intimate sexual
position, with Big Bird watching through the window, and dis-
played the art work in a student exhibition. "The whole thing was
meant to be a satirical comment he said. "Here's Bert and Ernie
living together so long, two guys who would be pinpointed as
being gay. They don't date any of the female characters The
Children's Television Workshop threatened to sue the university
over copyright infringement. Instead of fighting the Children's
Television Workshop, Johnson agreed to remove the painting
and left the letter in its spot at Colorado State's student center.
Paper seeks revenge on regents
In protest of the University of California Board of Regents'
decision to increase tuition by $605, the student newspaper at UC-
Santa Barbara printed the names, addresses and work telephone
number of all 18 regents, seven ex-officio regents and the student
regent. "We'd like to address a question that has dogged the UC
regents at several of your recent meetings a Daily Nexus edito-
rial said. "We've heard it issue from your politically appointed
lips more than once: 'Really, are we out of touch?' Well, dear
regents, sirs and madams,yes The editorial urged students to let
the regents know how they felt about the fee hike. The voting
records on the tuition increase and some of the regents' home
telephone numbers also were published.
Four students arrested in rape case
Bethune Cookman College officials are studying ways to
make the residence halls more secure after four Bethune Cookman
students were arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 14-
year-old girl on campus. The victim told police that on Dec. 1 a
man stopped to talk to her at a gas station in Day tona Beach. They
drank alcohol and smoked marijuana in a campus parking lot. She
was then taken tb a dorm room and sexually assaulted, police
said. After reviewing the case, prosecutors decided to charge the
men with assault rather than rape. A college spoke .woman said
the administration is investigating the security in the dorms. She
said the suspects were automatically a suspended and will re-
main so until the case is adjudicated.

University hate codes
becoming less specific
By Joe Horst
A recent Supreme Court ruling
has forced administrators toiookover
campus hate codes around the na-
In RAV. v. St. Paul, the Su-
preme Court concluded that an ordi-
nance prohibiting the display of a
symbol known to "arouse anger in
others on the basis of race, color, creed
violated the First Amendmentright
to freedom of speech. It based its de-
cision on the belief that the ordinance
unconstitutionally prohibited "speech
on the basis of the sub�xls the speech
Ben Irons, the university attor-
ney, said mat this ruling limits disci-
plinary proced ures to actual conduct,
not a person's speech.
"The court held, to the best I can
understand it, that it was unlawful
and unconstitutional for the city of St
Paul to issue an ordinance which pro-
hibited certain specific utterances
while allowing others Irons said.
"Someof the legalscholars have
called it 'underbreadth' rather than
'overbreadth Irons said, "which is
the term that we hear most in these
First Amendment cases
In the summer of 1992, the fac-
ulty Executive Committee proposed
changes in ECU'S Racial and Ethnic
Harassment policies in accordance
with the Court's ruling. The Board of
Trustees then approved the change in
policy, making the changes effective
in late August of 1992.
In effect, the policy waschanged
by the deletion of two subheadings
race or ethnic affiliation.
Previously, the university could
sanction a student or university em-
ployee that "subjected others to ra-
cial or ethnic insults, speech or other
actions which would haveatendency
to cause acts of violence or to harm
persons of property
With this deletion, the question
arose of how a person could seek
action against another person who
had verbally insulted himher on
the basis of race.
"If what is said is sufficiently
serious, then it would be an opportu-
nity to use the disciplinary code
Irons said. "We would not penalize a
student who allegedly uttered a slur
because of what was said.
"Rather, we would use letter E
in the Code Code of Conduct and
Disciplinary Offenses for Students,
Student Handbook, 'endangering,
injuring or threatening to injure the
purpose or property of another
"As long as the rule prohibits
the threat�the danger to persons or
property�then if s OK Irons said.
"As long as it's not aimed at the
specific nature of tl ie speech
Most universities around the
country are also following this trend
by changing their hate codes to a
more general base, rather than a spe-
cific one. Mark G. Yudof, dean of the
law school at the U. of Texas, Austin,
said universities that create specific
categories of hate speech create their
"The conclusion I would reach
from theopinion is that if you take an
approach to limiting speech and you
create categories, that amounts to a
content discriminationandthaf sun-
constitutional Yudof said.
Others have stated that life at
universities becomes difficult if they
may have to face racial slurs every
day. ECU's Equal Employment Op-
portunity officer, Mary Ann Rose,
said that universities serve as micro-
cosms of society.
"Universities should be ex-
amples of living civilly Rose said.
"Yet at the same time, we cannot
violate people rights
at Michigan State University, echoes
those concerns, "If a person can't go
to college and not worry about hav-
ing that ha tred directed toward them,
it's unfortunate Scheidemantel said.

the United Nations acts to take over
military control from the United
States, spokesmen said.
The Marine wounded Tues-
day night, Warrant Officer Gus
Axelson, was shot and wounded in
the right shoulder while driving to
the former US. Embassy.
The bullet shattered the
shoulder blade of Axelson, of Las

He is the fourth Marine casu-

relief workers that this lawless coun-
try is rife with bandits, gangs and
warring clans. One Marine has been
killed and three wounded.
Marine Col. Fred Peck said the
3rd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment,

Teachers remember accused
shooter as smart, quiet
GRAYSON, Ky. (AP) � A
shy honor student accused of
shooting to death a teacher and a
janitor in front of his classmates
recently wrote a book report on a
Stephen King novel with a simi-
lar plot, a fellow studpnt says.
Scott Pennington, 17, was
charged with two counts of capi-
tal murder and 22 of kidnapping
in Monday's 15-minute standoff
at East Carter High School in
Grayson, a town of 3,500 people
in the Appalachian foothills.
He was held in a juvenile
detention center for a hearing
Feb. 5 to decide whether he will
be tried as an adult.
Police would not discuss a
motive for the shootings.
Crystal Dyer, a senior who
said she witnessed the shooting,
said Pennington had written a
report recently on the King novel
"Rage about a deranged stu-
dent who shoots a teacher and
holds a class hostage.
Police said Pennington
walked into his senior English
class, pulled a revolver and fired
a shot over the head of 48-year-
old teacher Deanna McDavid. He
then stepped closer to McDavid
and shot her in the temple.
Janitor Marvin Hicks, 51,
rushed into the classroom,
pushed a student out of the way
and was shot in the abdomen,
Dyer said that after
Pennington shot the janitor,
Pennington "sat down in Mrs.
McDavid's chair and asked us,
'How many in here think I'm
'No one answered Dyer
said, "and he said, 'Cat got your
tongue? Usually you can't keep
your mouths shut
Police Officer Larry Green
said when he got to the class-
room, Pennington had already
released the other students. The
teen-ager pointed to where he
had left the gun on the teacher's
desk and gave up without a
struggle, Green said.

Clinton must play hardball with Iraq
Former president George Bush has left
some unfinished business for Bill Clinton to
take care of in his first day of office.
On Jan. 13, Bush ordered troops stationed
in Iraq to commence bombing raids. These raids
were in retaliation for Iraq firing on U.S. planes
in two "no-fly" zones in northern and southern
Iraq, and because of Saddam Hussein's refusal
toallow U.N. inspectors to inspect Iraq's nuclear
A week later, officials in Iraqhavepromised
to hold off firing at allied aircraft if the bombing
raids are halted. Iraq said it wanted to give
newly-elected president Clinton a calmer
atmosphere in order to fully study the situation.
Iraq has also said that the attacks serve no
purpose as they will not force cooperation with
the U.N. inspectors.
Problems have arisen with the allied forces,
as some Arab states have begun distancing
themselves from the war. Russia has also
demanded that the United States get explicit
permission from the United Nations before any
further raids are ordered.
Though some have seen the United States'
use of force as heavy-handed, Clinton said
Monday that he "will not waver" from Bush's
Clinton needs to stand by this promise in
order to ensure that the United States stands as
a decisive power in the world. Indecision and
confusion will only relate to other countries that
our government is weak and unable to stand up
for its own convictions.
The question of whether or not Bush should
have initiated the strikes is a moot one. What's
done is done and history cannot be changed.
What faces Clinton is the task of ensuring that
Hussein and Iraq comply with the U.N. deci-
Recently, Hussein has ordered an increase
in the food rations given to Iraqis. Clinton should
not be fooled by either the cease-fire promise or
this seemingly humanitarian act. As Hussein
tries to show he is a benevolent leader, he has
broadcasted that he will pay a $15,000 reward to
any "heroes" that shoot down an enemy missile.
Hussein showed in the first part of the Gulf
War that he could not be trusted; after the troops
had been removed for the most part from Iraq,
he continued to defy the United States and the
United Nations jointly. His two-faced approach
to this most recent skirmish should not have
Clinton must stand tough in one of his
most important decisions since becoming
President. Iraq must be made to comply with
U.N. sanctions and restrictions; if force is deemed
necessary, then so be it.
After this decision is made, Clinton can
continue his tough stance by addressing some
of the major problems here at home.

Baby-boomers to lead nation under Clinton
With all the hullabaloo
about Bill and Hillary Clinton rep-
resenting the rise to power of the
baby-boom generation, I decided
to do an informal, non-academic
to find out
fust who or
them up so
analysis of just what that
generation is and what it
represents as the new leadership
of the most powerful nation on
First of all, the baby-boomer
generation includes the roughly
75 million Americans born be-
tween 1946 and 1964. This huge
chunk (about one-third) of the
U.S. population has cut a unique
swath through American society,
pushing older and pulling
younger generations along with
When boomers began to
reach their teens in the sixties,
their long-haired, drop-out, free-
loving, psychedelic, groovy
search for the meaning of life
permeated the nation. In the
seventies, the older boomers
began to realize that nude outdoor
meditation and organic
gardening were tough ways to
make a living. So the generation
marched into the eighties with
their MBAs and began buying
BMWs with their Visa cards. They
also dominated markets and the
media. For example, boomers be-
gan pushing their late thirties in
the mid-1980s. When approach-
ing middle age brought broader
waistlines, gray hair and crows
feet, the market exploded with
health clubs, fad diets, Nordic-
tracks, hair color "because I'm
worth it" and an inexhaustible
sea of flesh sponges for Esoterica
face cream. The media responded
with Greek god and goddess
images of what a human being
should look like and drove many
normal people into despair.
Despair is another trade-
mark of the generation � it be-
came fashionable for boomers to
see themselves as victims.
Therapy support groups and 12-
step programs sprang up like
alfalfa, and boomers spent
thousands of hours and millions
of dollars trying to find out just
who or what screwed them up so
Boomers spend money
wildly. Western Media Corpora-
tion president Phil Goodman be-
lieves that boomers have experi-
enced plentiful timesall their lives
and have been brought up to
spend rather than to save.
Boomers have a great deal of
unsecured debt and high
mortgages, which causes concern
in the banking industry. What's
more, Northwestern National Life
Insurance Co. predicts that
retirees needing home healthcare
in 2011 will deplete thei r assets in
one year. As a consequence, baby-
boomers may continue working
into their '70s or '80s.
Another drain on boomer
pocketbooks is children. Baby-
boomers have now produced
about50 million children of their
own (as a result, a boom of new
consumer parenting products has
begun). Boomers have sought to
make good homes for their off-
spring, and so have migrated to
the suburbs, which gave rise to
such thingsas shopping malls and
Boomers should also be con-
cerned about the tiny generation
caught between the baby-
boomers and boomer children.
The tiny generation has been
tagged "baby-busters and they
hate the boomers. According to
Moira Farr of the Utne Reader,
busters see in boomers a show of
moral superiority and a distorted
view of history. Largely because
of boomer social gluttony, 63
percent of busters feel it will be
harder for them to live as
comfortably as the boomers.
But despite the busters, Bill
Clinton has taken his generation
to the White House; and Bill
Clinton is a classic baby-boomer.
He comes from a dysfunctional
family. He was born William
Jefferson Blythe IV on August 19,
1946, but got "Clinton" from his
mother's second (of five) husband
(who turned out to be an abusive
alcoholic). During the sixties,
Clinton experimented with drugs
and protest (without really inhal-
ing either); eventually became a
careerist with an impressive re-
sume (Rhodes Scholar, Yale Law,
Governor of Arkansas); and
seems happily married to a-
woman who is probably stronger
and more astute than he is.
Only time will tell how ef-
fective the new generation will
be at leading the nation. One thing
that seems clear is a distinct lack
of any identifiable morality or the
kinds of values that distinguish
great leaders. Perhaps the values
are there, buttheyare hard to see,
buried as they are in such liberal
catch-phrases as "political cor-
rectness" and "globally

Schlesinger Jr. has put forward
the thesis that American politics

coming to power to get the nation
moving again. If there is any value
to Schlesinger's thesis, then
Clinton is right on time.
It is important to note, how-
ever, that after a few years of civic
enthusiasm, the nation tends to
turn to more private pursuits, cre-
ating the Roaring Twenties, the
Eisenhower years and theReagan
era. If Clinton is as reckless at
pushing bigger government as
typical baby-boomers have been
known to be with other things,
the Roaring 21st Century might
start in 1996.

Pacino, O'Donnell tango
through 'Scent of a Woman'
By Gregory Dickens
As Scent of A Woman begins,
collegiate Charlie Simms (Chris
O'Donnell) answers an ad forajob
overThanksgi ving so he can afford
airfare for Christmas Break.
The job involves looking after
a blind relative while the family
goes on vacation. However, the
relative in question is retired Lieu-
tenant Colonel Frank Slade (Al
Pacino). He's loud, crude, brash
and he immediately preys on
Charlie's quiet, acquiescent de-
meanor. As soon as the family
leaves, he whisks Charlie onto a
plane bound for New York City,
where Frank intends to "take a last
tour of the battleground
"I plan to stay in a first-class
hotel (the Waldorf-Astoria), eat an
agreeable meal, make love to a ter-
rific woman and blow my brains
out Charlie is expectedly un-
settled. He is suddenly a seeing-
eye dog for a heavy-d linking, spite-
ful, blind man with suicidal ten-
dencies in New York City. Also,
Charlie is in trou bleat school where
he is being threatened with expul-
sion unless he rats on his prank-
playing friends, and offered a
Harvard scholarship if he does.
The advertisements for Scent
of A Woman emphasize Pacino's
performance � this is with good
reason. It's hard to measure his
performance because Frank is such
a believable character thatit'ssimi-
lar to comparing two different in-
dividuals. While obnoxious and
outspoken, he is also so sarcastic
and blatant he becomes ingrahat-

Frank's means of noticing and
appreciating what is around him

Bo Goldman's script has its
strongest moments when Charlie
and Frank discuss lifestyles and
backgrounds. It makes for great
conflict; Frankhas rebuilt his world
and the manner in which he lives in
it upon being blind; Charlie has
allowed others to structure his life.
Both are influenced by the other. It
is this growth by both characters
that makes the impending scene
involving Frank's intention to kill
himself both believable and well-
constructed. Scent is basically a two-
person drama and depends on its

'Game' nothing to cry about
By John Bullard
Smackdab in the middle of a throng
of underachieving big-name movies this
season comes a brilliant film from across
the Atlantic. You'll have to travel an
hour and a half to Raleigh's Rialto the-
ater to see it. However, if you take the
road-trip you won't be disappointed.
From the director of the highly ac-
cla imed Mona Lisa, The Crying Game takes
its audienceon a roller coaster ride filled
with intrigue, terrorism, and twists. Di-
rected and written by Neil Jordan, the
movie contains an excellent cast.
The Crying Game begins with the
kidnapping of Jody, an English sol-
dier, played by Forest Whitaker. His
kidnappers turn out to be part of the
Irish Republican Army that wants an
imprisoned comradeireed, if not Jody
will be killed. While he is held captive,
Jody slowly wins the friendship of
Fergus, played by Stephen Rea.
The scenes between Jody and
Fergus are filled with tight, witty dia-
logue that brings the two together. Jody
implores Fergus to take care of his girl
in the event he is killed. The impending
execution of Jody furthers the tenseness
of the situation when, finally, the order
is given: Fergus must shoot Jody.
Out in the woods where the ex-
ecution is to take place, Jody runs, forc-
ing Fergus to chase him. Jody then
reaches a road where a British tank hits
and kil Is him. The British force goes on
to kill most of the I.R.A. soldiers, except
Fergus and two others, who aren't aware

Often when a Hemingway novel is spoken of, readers think of For Whom the
Bell Tolls, The Sun Also Rises or perhaps The Old Man and the Sea. Flashes of
Hemingway in a past literature class may entice, but more likely intimidate,
younger readers. But The Garden of Eden should not be left off your reading list.
The novel opens in the southern coast of France d uring the mid '20s. David
Bourne is a young writer honeymooning with his bride, Catherine. David has
just published his firstnovel, and his wife is independently wealthy. Their days
are filled with Perrier, nude sunbathing and swimming and making love.
Early in the novel Catherine crops her long, dark hair. With a boyish new
style, her character begins to change. As they are making love she telis David
they have switched sexes.
As the day s progress, Catherine bleaches her hairaspaleas possible, begins
to wear the garb of local fishermen, and persuades David to do the same.
Humoring her, he lets her have her way.
While lunching one day, Catherine chances to meet an intriguir vung
woman, Marita. Soon after their in-
troduction, Marita announces her
love for Catherine. Not completely
surprised by this announcement,
he accepts the young woman's pres-
ence as inevitable, although his jeal-
ousy is apparent.
In Garden, Hemingway mas-
ters a story within a story by using
David'swritingasa descriptive nar-
rativeat its finest. The settingmoves
to Africa with a tale of a young boy,
his father and their hunt for an old
elephant with tremendous tusks.
They are accompanied by a native
of the area, Juma. This tale is capti-
vating on its own as the boy learns
to love the elephant and hate his
father and Juma for hunting it.
Ironically, Catherine harbors a
growing jealousy for David's writ-
ing while Marita encourages it.
Gradually Catherine (now being
convinced of her lesbianism) with-
drawswhileat the same timepush-
ing Marita (now becoming hetero-

Why chronic dieting doesn't work
Only 5 percent of all dieters
will have maintained their
weight loss at the end of one
when you consider the average
American diets 3 times annu-
ally. Why are so many
people involved in
this self-defeating ,
act? An obses-
sion with thin-
ness and the
limited view j
that dieting will
help you lose
weight has Ameri-
cans running to buy JF
diet aids to the tune of
$10 billion per year.The bottom
line is that "diets" don't work.
One comedian said that the
root of the word diet is "to die
It conjures up the dying urge to
eat, and a life filled with wilted
celery sticks. The common
phrase "going on a diet" gives
you the feeling that it is some-
thing you start but are able to
quit. The thought of dieting
had even forgotten about. Diet-
ing may be the "in" social thing
to do but the statistics show that
it simply not working.
Why Diets Don't Work
People who diet often can
lower their metabolisms enough
todecreasetheircaloric needs. This
can be done in two ways:
� First, a d iet of less than 1,000-
1,200 caloriescan actually
state and force your
body to conserve
, calories. The body
will cutback its ca-
fe loric needs to sur-
you won't lose
more in the long run
K on a 500 calories diet
than you would on one
above 1,000 calories. This starva-
tion state can lower the metabo-
lism for as much as one year.
� Second, crash dieting can
change the body's composition.
Let's say you lost 10 pounds in two
weeks. Most of that weight was
water (5 pounds), some was fat (3
pounds)and the rest wasmuscle(2
pounds). When the weight is re-
gained (as 95 percent do), it comes
back in the form of fat and water.
Every future diet can cycle this
downward trend of muscle loss
until the chronic dieter can change
their percentage of body fat over
time from 25 percent to 35-40 per-
cent. Surprisingly, the scale may
not show large amounts of
weight change. Muscle burns
up more calories than fat and
their chronic dieting has made
them lose a large percentage of
what helps them keep trim.
This yo-yo effect of depriva-
tion and regaining can harm
the body. It is better to never
have dieted at all than to keep
losing and regaining the same
What Does Work
What does help lose and
maintain weight ishealthy eat-
ing habitsand food choicesand
a more active lifestyle. Take a
fresh look at your daily diet
and exercise � get rid of the
idea that a diet is something to
end u re for a month a fter which
you can go back to your old
habits. Make short and long
term goals to slowly change
your lifestyle to include
healthier food choices and to
be more active at work and
play. You'll be healthier and
happier when you give up di-
eting and will be closer to
achievinga permanent weight
change by focusing on thequal-
ity of your diet and exercise

This is where the movie
turns toward Fergus, who his
decided to find and meet Dill,
Jody's girl, played by lave
Davidson. The two start to hit it
off when the major twist of The

Things get worse when one

that you could take a family of four to see the

The question is really of value; you could

Da' Bears find new head coach
LAKE FOREST, Dl. (AP) �
Dave Wannstedt is ready to launch
a new era in the tradition-wrapped
lore of the Chicago Bears, a comer-
stone franchise of the National Foot-
The defensive coordinator of
theSuper Bowl-bound DallasCow-
boyswasnamed the lOthhead coach
of da' Bears Tuesday, succeeding
the immensely popular but some-
times raging Mike Ditka.
Ditka, hired 11 years ago al-
most to the day by team founder
George Halas, was fired by club
president Michael McCaskey two
weeks ago after compiling a 112-68
record, including the Super Bowl
championship in 1986.
"He is the right man for the
right job McCaskey said in an-
nouncing the hiring of Wannstedt,
who in four years under Jimmy
Johnson in Dallas put together the
No. 1 defense in the NFL after the
Cowboys had gone 1-15 in 1989.
"If this is the passing of the
torch, this is the right time to do it
said McCaskey. "1 think the fans
will take to him and really like the
style that will be played by da'Bears
on the field
Wannstedt, 40, was sought by
several clubs, including the New
him $3 million over five years. Terms
of his Bears contract were not re-
"The decision was easy said
Wannstedt. "You look for a situa-
tion with an organization fhatgives
a coach the opportunity to win and
to win for a long time. I feel very
comfortable and I'm very excited
about the direction the Chicago
Bears will take during the '90s
After the announcement was
made in Soldier Field, Wannstedt
was whisked to Halas Hall where
he met with the assistant coaches
and front office personnel.
"I was very honest with them
and they appreciated that he said
of the assistants.
"I will hire my coordinators
first and then assemble the position
Wannstedtsaid itwould be safe
to assume he would hire his own
offensive coordinator to replace
GregLandry and thathehad talked
with defensive coordinator Vince
Tobin, "and he understands the di-
rection I want to go
Wannstedt, before leaving for
Dallas "to start reviewing film on
Buffalo said he would devote the
next two weeks to preparing the
Cowboys' defense for the Super
Bowl against the Buffalo Bills.
"My duties with da' Bears will
not kick in until after the Super
Bowl he said.
When they do, he can expect to
be judged against Ditka, whose
record and tenure with da' Bears
were second only to Halas, who
had a 326-151-32 record in more
rhan36years in four different terms.
Wannstedt's career is remark-
ably similar to Ditka's.
Both grew up in western Penn-
sylvania. Both played college foot-
ball at Pitt and both were assistants
at Dallas before getting their first
head coaching job with da' Bears

Nobody wants to bite the Big Apple anymore
CHICAGO (AP) � What is
it with New York and sports
How come everybody still
takes the calls, but nobody takes
the job anymore?
Up until Tuesday, there was
reason to think this love-hate
relationship was strictly a
That free agents like David
Cone, Barry Bonds and Greg
Maddux, after being wined and

lot by angry fans and how Met

Tuesday brought the sug-
gestion that it is becoming a
"football thing" as well.
Barely two weeks after Tom
Coughlin said he wouldn't leave
Boston College for the New York
Giants job, Dallas defensive co-
ordinator Dave Wannstedt, who
was courted even more ener-
getically as a successor to the
fired Ray Handley, turned up
in Chicago to take Mike Ditka's
old job instead.
When asked to explain why
he chose this town over that one,
Wannstedt showed some
nimble footwork for a guy who
spends most of his time plot-
ting how to stop it.
"The Giants are a great foot-
ball organization he said. "Ev-
erybody knows that
But a moment later, he said,
"Chicago has always been a
team I've really respected an
awful lot. It was just a great
opportunity for me
And a few moments after
that, with his wife at his side
and two teen-age daughters
somewhere in the back of his
mind, Wannstedt added, "Per-
sonally, with my family, we're

world says that a bou t New York
Now, whether it's the resu It
of genetics or environment,
New Yorkers are a very suspi-
cious people. And there was
plenty in this latest rejection to
be suspicious about.
Under the guidance of Dal-
las coach Jimmy Johnson,
Wannstedt became the pick of
the litter among NFL assistants
after the Cowboys went 13-3 and
notched playoff wins over Phila-
delphia and San Francisco.
And because of their close
friendship, there was much
speculation that Wannstedt
would not risk alienating John-
son by signing on with an NFC
East team that would require
student to go up against mentor
twice each season.
Though Wannstedt never al-
luded to it, Johnson said as much
At a news conference in Dal-
las, Johnson said he and

diverging paths only the day be-
fore and concluded that "our

So, assuming the money was
equal in both places, what else
came into play?
Some people assumed that
Wannstedt would choose New
York, if only because he would
accept much more readily fol-
lowing a bust like Handley in-
stead of a legend like Ditka.
But they did not realize that
Wannstedt does not scare easily

fraternity life. We believe in strong Brotherhood, while maintaining
each Brother's distinct personality. Delta Chi has outstanding friendship
athleticism, leadership, scholarship, and most of all good times. We are
looting for men that want to make the most of college life. If you would

Delta Sigma Phi was chartered at East Carolina in April of 1971, and has
continually given what it could to better the ECU Greek system. Delta
Sigis based on three simple, butloyal principles: Leadership, Scholarship,
and Brotherhood. Brotherhood is a phenomenon that can be felt and
witnessed much better than it can be explained. It is a deep friendship
with men who can always be depended upon to help when there is a
need, and to be there to share the experience of self growth in the
incredibly complex world of college life.
