Student forced to leave dorm room by Resident Education
By Karen Hassell
Assistant News Fditor
Stacey Staton had a lot of prob-
lems getting a dorm room this semes-
On Jan. 13, she turned in her hous-
ing contract and was assigned a room
in Slay Hall with Marenda Taylor.
"That's when I went and met
Marenda Staton said. "I was going to
be nice, you know, to let her know I
"That night, the 13th, she called
me and she said 'Well Stacey I didn't
tell you this earlier but I've got a prob-
lem I said what's your problem. She
said 'Well, I'm allergic to the chemicals
in black people's hair
According to Staton who is black,
Taylor requested that Staton find an-
other room. Staton, who holds two jobs
along with being a student, told Taylor
she did not have the time to go through
the process of finding another room
and she must move in the next day.
"Then she called me on the 14th,
four Staton said. "I
was moving in about
4:30 because I had to be
a work at five. I was on
my way to get things
prepared to move on
over when she called
me and said, T got a
doctor's note and I
went to housing and
they said they can give
you a vacant room
"I said a vacant
room sounds good, but
I can't afford to go
through all of this
again. I really have to
come on and move in today. She said
'Can you call housing?' I told Marenda
I really didn't have time for all that so
we went back and forth a little bit
Later, the coord inator of Slay Hall,
Linda Sessoms, called Staton and told
her they had a list of
names of people that did
not yet have a roommate
which she could contact
to find a room. Staton
stressed that with her
schedule, she did not
have time for that, but
needed a place to stay
Staton said Sessoms
explained that Taylor
had a doctor's note and
had made the room pri-
vate. Staton also said that
it was her understand-
ing that private requests
could not be granted un-
Staton said she inquired how they
could kick her out of her room and was
told that technically she was not being
kicked out because she did not have
keys and was not registered. However,
Staton said she did have her keys and
Staton received a vacant room on
Jan. 16 and Taylor was left in her room
which was converted to a private room.
"They (housing) did not offer me
a private room Staton said. "They
didn't call and apologize or anything.
All they did was kick me out. And, they
gave me a vacant room at my own
request. I do not blame Marenda or
Linda, the coordinator, 1 blame hous-
ing. I believe they should have had
adequate records to know that I was in
that room already and that they should
not have been able to just kick me out
Emanuelle Amaro, assistant Vice
Chancellor and Director of Housing,
said that the department of resident
education is in charge of handling situ-
ations such as this.
"They have counselors to deal
with these issues Amaro said.
"We have to consider, are we do-
ing the best thing for her by putting her
in a situation that she is going to be
hated?" Amaro said. "It's really ter-
rible. I hope, and I don't know that this
is the case, but hopefully the white
student received some counseling on
"I belive a compromise was
worked out. We charged the white stu-
dent for a private room and gave the
black student a vacant room
The charge for the vacant room is
the same as one with a roommate.
"My gut feeling is that it was a
racial issue, but the girl did have a
doctor's note Sessoms said.
Janet Johnson, coordinator of resi-
dent education, could not be reached
for comment. Taylor would not com-
ment on the situation.

Jackson' revived by maritime department's computers
By Joe Horst
ECU's maritime history and un-
derwater Archaeology department is
resurrecting history with their computer
simulation of the Confederate ironclad,
The "Jackson" was raised from the
Chattahoochee River 30 years ago. Cur-
rently, the ship's planks and ribs are
being displayed at the Confederate Na-
val Museum in Columbus, Ga.
"The Museum is interested for a
couple of reasons said Gordon Watts,
professor for the maritime department.
"The first reason is they're hoping to
move the remains from its present lo-
cation to a better museum complex.
They're worried that, in the move,
there's going to be some destruction of
the surviving structure.
"The other thing is they want to be
able to reconstruct some portions of the
vessel that are no longer there. This will
make it more comprehensible to the pub-

Instructor dismissed over complaint
A business law instructor at Northern Michigan University
was asked not to teach the winter semester after a student
complained that he let his class out early. Willard Martin, who
taught a class scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m usually
finished presenting his material by 8 p.m. and dismissed the
students. A student filed a complaint to the Management and
Marketing Department, The North Wind reported. "There are
many times when the class time is longer than the material needs
to be taught Martin told the campus newspaper. A petition to
support Martin was signed by 90 percent of his class and given to
the administration, but the firing was upheld. Officials wouldn't
comment, the paper reported.

men will live in the fraternity houses only their junior and senior
years. Sophomores will live in residence halls or off campus.
Sorority women will live in sorority suites in a residence hall their
junior year, then will have the option to live off campus their
senior year. Officials say the delayed rush has put juniors and
seniors in charge of the fraternity houses, which has resulted in
less abuse of house rules and cleaner houses.

"sidesaddle" tanks mounted out-
side the frame are prone to rupture
and catch fire in a sideways crash.
Lastweek, an Atlanta jury held
GM negligent in the design of the
gas tanks and ordered GM to pay
$105.2 million to the parents of a
teen-ager killed in a fiery crash. GM
insists the design is safe.
"Dateline NBC" correspon-
dent Michelle Gillen's 15-minute
report showed what NBC said was
about a 40 mph crash in which there
was no fire. Then, in what was re-
ported as a crash of about 30 mph,
the truck ignited in a fireball.
GM alleged, and NBC admit-
ted two days ago, that tiny toy-rocket
motors placed underneath the sec-
ond truck were triggered by remote
control during the crash � some-
thing NBC did not disclose to view-
ers of the demonstration.
NBC said earlier this week that
the motors were put there to ensure
there would be a fire if the gas tank
ruptured. NBC said it didn't tell
viewers because its experts con-
cluded a broken headlight actually
started the fire.
Buton Tuesday night's broad-

SG A not Machine, has student interests
Recently, the University of Alabama's
administration shut down the student gov-
ernment because of a report that a candidate
for student president had been assaulted for
running against what is called "the Machine
The student claimed that a man came
into her apartment and assaulted her, saying
that she was allied with the wrong
people. Two months earlier, the stu
dent found a cross burning on her
front lawn and notes in her mail-
box with the phrase "Machine
'The Machine" is a shad-
owy, behind-the-scenes collec-
tion of white fraternities and
sororities that back certain indi-
viduals for election into student
government. Most students who
run against Machine-backed can-
didates have lost the election, with
evidence being documented as far back
as the '30s.
Students are on both sides of the assault
issue. School President Roger Sayers stopped
short of blaming the Machine for the incidents
and the Machine-backed candidate is quoted
as feeling "really horrible the assault hap-
pened Also, previous Machine-supported
SGA officers have stated that they have no
doubt the incidents are Machine-related.
This example of university tyranny puts
ECU's Student Government Association in a
more realistic light. We can sit back and breathe
a collective sigh of relief that at least we're not
s bad as the University of Alabama. But that
doesn't mean that the SGA is at the other end
of the spectrum, either.
What ECU has is a group of students,
albeit small, who are dedicated to the benefit
of the school for the students. Each week,
these students do their best to fight the red
tape that hampers their efforts to
make this campus a better place
for all of us. Not only must
Cthey fight this ongoing bu-
Y reaucracy, but also the apa-
thy of some of the student
I I j body that they represent.
Apathy is what al-
y i lows groups like the Ma-
chine to grow and fester.
Since the 1930s, this group
has been allowed to influ-
ence and sway elections
through fear and intimidation.
Students and administrators knew
about the existence of this group; they just
chose to do nothing about it.
ECU's SGA may not be the best that a
collegiate system has ever seen. It has its pit-
falls just like any other student government.
But at least it's open to student input and
opinion. The average student does have a say
in what goes on at this campus. The question
remains though, do you care enough to take
the time to have that say?
If you don't, then maybe the Machine
isn't such a bad idea after all. Then again,
neither was Big Brother.
By Gregory Dickens
Hollywood reflects societal attitude to sex
As one of the movie re-
viewers for this fine publication,
I've noticed a trend in the last 10
years that has swept through
Hollywood like wildfire. In the
chic thrillers and suspense pic-
tures that have been released,
one dominant plotline has been
the easy-money racehorse that
has beaten Stephen King and
Tom Harris for chills and profit:
sex can kill ya
In the shadow of AIDS that
the media has eagerly cast on
America and consequently the
world, Hollywood has picked
up on and utilized the increas-
ingly-real threat of fatal affairs.
Cinematic sex has often
been used as a danger for pro-
tagonists. Adultery and rape
are no longer only hinted at with
innuendo or clever camera work
as was the case in early movies.
The big, bad atomic mutants
were infamous for preying on
the young and the nubile in the
'50s. Rare was the sci-fi poster
lacking a beast stalking half-
The '60s movies revolved
around the emerging sexual
revolution and the insecurity of
youth, such as The Graduate or
the various Tennessee Williams
adaptations. The '70s gave us
the slasher genre wherein Jason
or Michael would kill some teen-
agers that had sneaked off for a
The incurable epidemic of
the '80s brought to light the
multi-faceted pitfalls incurred
with random or illicit sex. It also
boosted the appeal of old-fash-
ioned love stories where boy
meets girl; not boy meets girl,
boy meets other girl, and boy
meets the Barbie twins.
The first movie to reintro-
duce monogamy as a sound
ideal was Fatal Attraction, in
1985. Michael Douglas found
himself hounded by the woman
he had an affair with. Glenn
Close was determined to "not
be ignored" because she was
inconvenient to his marriage. In
case you forgot, the talk shows
(the medium that permeate ev-
ery available audio visual fre-
quency transmitted today) cut
their teeth on the "fatal attrac-
tion syndrome" for nearly two
Attraction set the plotline
so common today in which the
femme fatale is elevated to an
even-deadlier status of sex-
killer. Not only will the suspi-
cious lady that you love to hate,
and hate to love, break your
heart, but the temptation to bed
her can literally get you killed.
This wasn't a true novelty,
but before it was the gangster
she was with or the husband she
wed who threatened the hero.
Now, it's the woman. No longer
helpless or vulnerable to the
protagonist's whims, she
wouldn't merely fall in love with
the persuasive Don Juan. She
could possibly kill him for his
The massive success of Fa-
tal Attraction made the sex-killer
a potent profit-maker. Theresa
Russell in Black Widow
reawakened the character that
kills her husband after marriage
in order to collect insurance
money (much like Madonna in
Body of Evidence). Scandalous re-
lived the true story of a sex scan-
dal involving Parliament mem-
bers abolished from their posts
for hiring prostitutes (similar to
the recent Damage with Jeremy
Irons in which a successful poli-
tician loses all for his affair with
his son's fiance).
However, the recent Basic
Instinct directly confronted the
wariness with which lovers
should be armed. Granted, not
everyone falls for a libidinous
novelist accused of murdering
for money. But the point is that
many men, and women, (as the
movie suggests) would want to
roll in the hay with someone
like Catherine and may not rec-
ognize the obvious danger they
place themselves in. A transpar-
ent allegory of AIDS? You bet
your sweet bippy.
As is Bram Stoker's Dracula.
The plot line involves Lucy
slowly manifesting physiologi-
cal transformations due to blood
transference. Mina also risks
exposing herself to the same fate
for love. Obvious.
It's refreshing to realize
that Hollywood isawareof how
society is worried by the threat
of a disease most commonly
transmitted through sex. Of
course, a profit is made off of
this concern and maybe that's
not such a bad thing. If Holly-
wood continues to make mov-
ies in which characters deter-
mine monogamy, responsibility
and loyalty make for health and
happiness, perhaps audiences
will get the point also. A little
consideration on such topics is
time well-spent and possibly

Citizens only key to breaking oppression
emment (along with the other
nebulous and often unnamed en-
tities that constitute the "estab-
lishment") has borne the brunt of
many attacks. Such a charge is a
convenient escape from personal
responsibility, nothing more. To
say that the government is solely
responsible for the oppression of
its citizens is like a murderer claim-
ing that it was the gun, not he, that
is responsible for the murder of
his victim. The government and a
gun are analogous � both are ef-
fective tools ei ther to protect one's
own rights or to violate the rights
of others. The resu 11 of their use or
abuse is attributable not to the
tool, but to the user.
To clarify this analogy for
smaller minds: The statement "a
government derives its powers
from the consent of those gov-
erned" is not an empty theory, but
inevitable truth. One of the dys-
functions of a democratic system
such as ours is the power it ex-
tends to the majority to oppress
the minority � in effect, democ-
racy engenders a government that
enforces mob rules. I f the majority
happens to be of one race, govern-
ment enforces their power to op-
press other races. If the majority
happens to be male, the govern-
ment enforces their power to op-
press a female minority. Thus, both
racism and sexism demonstrate
this inherent flaw in a "fair" sys-
It is not the intention of this
columnist to suggest that we in-
vert the balance entirely, giving
the minority power to oppress the
majority, as is the case in many
totalitarian states and other
militocracies. Oppression is op-
pression, no matter who holds the
gun. Democracy remains the only
system in which everyone ha s pro-
portionate representation. Itisone
of the few systems that has the
potential to promote fairness, but
only if its power is exercised with
the utmost discretion � discre-
tion equal to, if not greater than,
that which one uses when firing a
Any situation in which op-
pression occurs requires each side
to take an active role: the
oppressor's "right" to oppress
him, thereby assisting the oppres-
sor by accepting the status of a
victim. Since both must take an
active role, it is within the power
of either party to halt the oppres-
It is easier, by far, for the
oppressor to cease, as it is he who
is initiating the system of oppres-
sion. To use the example of master
and slave (the most obvious level
of oppression) it is easier for a
master to free his slave than for a
slave to become free of his master.
In terms of democracy, this means
that those who support any law
should consider its macrosocial
impact. Too many voters are con-
cerned only with their own ben-
efit, not with the fairness of a given
seek to oppress others for their
own benefit. Through power-lust
and ignorance, American voters
have turned their government into
an extortion racket that robs Peter
to pay Paul � and as a result, it is
strongly supported by aspiring
The oppressor, however, has
little incentive todesist, especially
in a society in which integrity has
little value. The promise of some-
thing for nothing has a strong ap-
peal � too strong for many to
resist. Distressingly few people,
especially the mediocre, have the
integrity to decline an opportu-
nity to extort a living or to infringe
upon the rights of others for their
Incentive is far greater on
the part of the oppressed�but in
order to cease the oppression, the
victi m must rebel. Rebellious cases
in which a slave breaks free from
his master, can be difficult and
bloody. Thedifficulty and thedan-
ger, however, does not relieve the
victim of responsibility. Nazi ex-
ecutioners at the Nuremberg tri-
als often plead innocence, claim-
ing that they were just following
orders � disobedience or rebel-
lion would have put the execu-
tioners in danger. They were by
no means innocent. The same is
true for a policeman who, while
violating the rights of citizens,
claims that he is just doing his job,
and for anyone who obeys or acts
to aid the enforcement of a law to
which he morally objects.
When any incidence of op-
pression exists, it is never morally
justifiable to blindly follow orders
�it is imperative to question those
orders, to defy them, and, in ex-
treme cases, to rebel against the
establishment from which those
orders came. To refrain from do-
ing so is to grant sanction to the
oppressors; to acknowledge that
whatever they happen to be doing
is not only acceptable, but right.
The drug "war" is an ex-
ample of rebellion. While drugs,
as a commodity, are harmful, their
use is an inalienable right, a choice
on the part of citizens over which
thegovemmenthasno power. The
producers, in this case, are the ones
fighting to protect their right to
supply the consumers' demand.
Theinabilityof the government to
stop the flow of drugs�or of any
commodity it has declared illegal
� demonstrates that the laws are
not supported by citizens, hence
enforcement of these la ws is an act
Thus, government has no
power to establish laws over the
objection of its citizens � wide-
spread violation of arbitrary legis-
lation serves to demonstrate its
impotence. In such cases, govern-
ment may only act punitively
when it is able to apprehend a
transgressor. Just as oppression is
only possible by the acceptance of
its victims, so is governmental
power only effective with the sanc-
tion of its citizens. Rebellion is
possible in regard to any oppres-
sive law � it is not only possible,
While it remains true that
government is oppressive, wecan-
not demand, or expect, govern-
ment to initiate the changes that
are necessary because it is not
within the power of government
to change itself. Responsibility lies
in the hands of the citizens who
have created and continue to spon-
sor such oppression, whether by
active support or passive accep-
tance. Breaking the chains is the
firststepin regaining our freedom
�the second step, which requires
far more self-control, is refusing
to use the whip.

Gere, Foster shine in 'Sommersby'
By Dean Koontz
(AP)�In Dragon Tears, author Dean Koontz takes readers on a
journey into the supernatural, where he suspends disbelief and
makes the implausible sound plausible.
Two Southern California detectives, Harry Lyon and Connie
Gulliver, work well together, but nothing in the police manual
prepares them for encounters with the "Ticktock Man He can stop
time, rearrange reality and assume different horrible forms.
A perfectionist, Lyon believes that by leading an orderly life he
can control the chaos he faces on the streets. Gulliver is gung-ho,
always ready for a dangerous assignment.
As she explains it: "You gotta be in sync with the rhythms of
destruction. Civilization iscomingdown around ourears You've
gotta know when tobreakaruletosave the system�andhowtosurf
on every random wave of madness that comes along
The madness begins while the two officers are having lunch. A
young man enters the restaurant, opens fire on the customers and
then flees out a rear door, with Lyon and Gulliver in pursuit. The
gunman is finally slain in a shootout during which he yells out titles
of Elvis Presley songs.
After leaving the scene, Lyon is confronted by a repulsive
vagrant. "Ticktock, Ticktock. You'll be dead in sixteen hours the
hobo says. He disintegrates � not into a pile of bones, but into
pebbles, dust, pieces of old rags and dry clods of earth.
In another confrontation, at Lyon's home, he shoots the hobo
four times, but he doesn't go down.
"The vagrant raised his right hand, and green static electricity
crackled between his fingers. Light shimmered in the air above his
palm, and suddenly his hand was on fire. He snapped his wristand
flung a fireball across the room. It hit the drapes and they exploded
The hoboagain warns Lyon thathe will diesoon, and then burns
to cinders before the officer's eyes.
As the investigation continues, Lyon and Gulliver learn that the
hobo, with his frightening powers, also has set a deadline for killing
three other people, all of them homeless.
Who is this demon and how can he be stopped? Most of the
questions raised by Lyon and Gulliver are answered by a patient in
a private sanitarium.
Koontz provides a violent finale for this fantasy.

speaks at night
By Marjorie McKinstry
The midnight hour flips over to an-
other day, and suddenly another sound
emanates over WZMB's airwaves. Mu-
sic ceases to be of primary importance,
and the power of words, The Spoken
Word, starts a two-hour rampage that
trots through literature and any other
form of words the eclectic collection of
announcers have available.
Ts saviours of The Spoken Word and
dubious poetry go by the names Bucky
Sinister, Courage J. Sanskrit, Olay (as in
Oil of) Castlepunch, and Upton Wage
deliver insomniacs from boredom and
the unenlightened fromdepravity every
Monday night from midnight until 2 a.m.
Although the focus of the show is on
language and the spoken word, the show
is not a talk show. The deejays pick a
topic for the week, and then spend hours
searching through the library and
through their personal music collections
to create a suitable mental menu for the
night's intellectual onslaught.
Half an hour before the show, Sinis-
ter, Sanskrit, Castlepunch and Wage
compare lists of music, poetry, prose
and recorded speeches. They plunge
into bookbags, pulling out old literary
textbooks, back issues of Exjircssions a nd
the Rebel, and some of their own writ-
ings, composed while indulging in frothy
beverages. Two different copies for the
list of the day surface; Sanskrits'version
includes the word of the day-Yo mate-
rial of the day - grunge flannel; hairy
animal of the day-Chewbacca; orifice of
the day - mouth; and occupation of the
day-a tie between dentist and shepherd.
A few minutes before airtime, the
men grab their CDs and cassettes and
start programming the shows' music and
background aura. Unfortunately, the
cassette system is in an ill mood and
refuses to play. After a non-panicked
rush to the mike, Wage invites the audi-
ence to another evening examining the
This week's focus is on black English
and the black vernacular. The record-
ings of Malcom X are interspersed with
the musings of Bob Marley and the po-
etry of Gwendolyn Brooks and Amiri
Baraka. Wage tests his fellow deejays
with a hip hop vocabulary list. "Cour-
age J. Sanskrit, esq could you use dope
in a sentence?" Wage asks. Sanskrit
stumbles on the slang definition of dope,
but does manage to use the word cor-
rectly in a sentence -dope, by the way,
Next, Wage explains the differences
between the east and west coast mean-
ings of eighth,ill, one being a haircut,
and the other to kill someone. Wage
asks, "Bucky Sinister, can you use
eightball correctly as a verb?"
Sinister replies, "The drug deal went
bad, so John eightballed Larry
"That was dope Sanskrit adds.
The discussions on the show are a
sort of bonus; WZMB already has one

Greenville restaurants cater to lovers

Red, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. Cupid with his
arrows. A dozen red roses. A romantic dinner for two.
Valentine's Day conjures up all of these images.
This holiday for couplesand young loversdatesali the way
back to the Middle Ages. Love notes, usually anonymous, were
sent on Feb. 14 because birds began to mate on that day. So,
naturally, the theory held that this constituted the perfect day
for humans to express their affection, also.
The name Valentine's Day originated with the Christian
martyr, St. Valentine, known as the patron saint of lovers. On
Feb. 14, St. Valentine was beheaded in Rome, and it became
traditional to prepare a celebratory feast on that day in his

The rare, four-volume double el-
ephant folio of The Birds of America by
John James Audubon will be on view at
the North Carolina Museum of Art Feb-
ruary 6-June 20. Twenty-seven hand-col-
ored engravings from the publication wi 11
also be on view.
The folios and the prints are part of
the Museum's own collection. Because
the prints are very susceptible to fading
caused by exposure to light, they areonly
shown occasionally. The Museum last
exhibited a selection of the prints in 1988.
This is the first time the folios will be on
view in an exhibition in the Museum.
Audubon, the noted American orni-
thologist and artist, realized a lifelong
goal in The Birds of America� to publish a
book illustrating every species of bird
found on the North American continent.
The 435-plate, double-elephant folio took
11 years to complete, from 1827-1838, and
represents years of strenuous field work
by Audubon to document more than 1,000
Audubon broke from the practice of
recording wildlife from stuffed examples
and established a new approach to his
documentation. He observed the birds in
the field, learning their mating and feed-
characteristics. Rather than using the stiff
profiles that had been customary, he cre-
ated lifelike drawings of birds in their
natural habitats often eating, feeding, or
even figh ting Audubondid his firstsketch
in watercolor, and then combined the
watercolor with pencil, pastel, ink, oil,
crayon, and egg white to produce the
specialized texture and colors he desired
for each bird. His remarkable sense of
color and composition, coupled with has
flair for the theatrical, helped him create a
drawing that would best emphasize a
particular bird's physical characteristics
as will as its habits and habitat.
Publishing 77ze Birds of America was a
project of equal magnitude to the field
work. Unable to convince an American
publisher to accept the project, he con-
tracted with Robert Havell in London to
undertake the complicated copper-plate
printing and hand-
coloring process nec-
essary to accomplish
what Audubon had in
mind. Audubon sold
the publication to the
public through a sub-
scription system. A
subscriber had the
option of receiving The Birds of America
five plates at a time periodically over the
11 year process or the entire series bound
into four volumes at the project's conclu-
Fewer than 200 bound sets were pro-
duced, and the existanceof just more than
100 is known today. At the time of publi-
cation, the price in the United States for
the complete bound set was $1,000. Ac-
cording to the JulyAugust 1992 issue of
Antique Monthly, a copy of Ausubon's The
Birds of America recently sold for $4.07
million at Christie's, a record for any il-
In 1846, the State of North Carolina
purchased the double-elephant folio at
the request of William A. Graham, who
was the state's governor from 1845-49,
and with the help of Joseph Green
Cogswell, celebrated librarian and bibli-
ographer who was headmaster of the
Episcopal School for Boys in Raleigh from
1834-36. Graham write to Cogswell, who
was then living in New York, about ac-
quiring the folios.
Cogswill found The Birds of America
and purchased the work for the state for
$650, a reduced amount probably due to
the fact that two plates were missing. In
the last 15years, the Museum has located
replacement plates for the missing two to
complete the folios.
The volumes remained at the State
Library until 1974, when they were trans-
ferred to the Museum, and a small num-
ber of plates were unbound, cleaned, and
restored. The twenty-seven prints on view
in the exhibition are part of that group.

causeof their fragile state. General use by

Overton's preparation pays off Coyer hoping to
By Billy Weaver
Last year the Pirate baseballteam
finished with a 25-24 reoord. ECU is
back and gunning for their 22nd
consecutive winning season.
Finishing 7-10 in the Colonial
Athietic Association in 1992, the Pi-
rates look to their returning starters
and new comers, including seven
junior college transfers, in hopes of
regaining the CA A crown.
PITCHERS: The Pirates return
eight pitchers from their '92 roster.
Head Coach Gary Overton will look
to leaders such as left)- Johnny Beck
and righthandersHoward Whitfield
and Lyle Hartgrove. Beck, who
struck out 91 batters last year with a
3.54 ERA will be heavily depended
on d uring this season's tou gh sched-
CATCHERS: Junior college
transfer Mike Peters is very likely to
start for the Pirates behind the plate.
Peters was brought in to provide
defensivestability. Although offense
was the main objective for most of
ECU'snew recruits, the one concern
of the Pirate defense is opposing
"We had a very hard time last
year with keeping teams from run-
ning on us pretty much at will
FIRST BASE: Lee Kushner is a
shoe-in at the right corner. In 1992
Kushner batted 353 with 13 home
runs. The Pirates will depend on his
plate. He will also be looked upon to
provide team leadership.
SECOND BASE: Heath dark
and Kevin Obholz are two assets to
the Pirate middle infield.
"Heath has been a two-year
starter for us and do to mat experi-
repair Pirate defense
ECU's baseball team will start the season tommorow against Georgia Southern in Statesboro. Aft�r four
road games to start the season, the Pirates will face the Tar Heels at Harrington Field on Feb. 19 at 3 p.m.
en ce he leads with winning that posi-
tion. Kevin Obholz is a very fine
player and will geta greatamountof
playing time Overton said.
The Pirates will also look for
Kevin 'sbatsomewh ere in thelineup.
THIRD BASE:The Pirateshave
a dandy in junior-college transfer
Chris West West wasa fourth-round
pick straight out of high school but
elected to mature at Louisburg Jun-
ior College. The Pirates expect big
things from West and hope that his
left handed power at the plate will
come in handy.
Overton also expects West to be
able to take some of the burden from
standout Lee Kushner in the batting
order. West will most likely fill the
No. 3 spot in the lineup.
SHORTSTOP: Definitely a
weak spot for the Pirates in '92.
"We played musical chairs (last
year). We used as many as four dif-
ferent players Overton said. Seton
Hall transfer Frank Fedak has won
the position. Fedak is not a flashy
player but Overton feels that he will
be able to get the job done.
ferJamieBorel and Freshman Lamont
Edwards look to anchor the defense
for the Pirates in the outfield. Speed
will be a factor in favor of the Pirate

"may be the best athlete on our dub
Offensively, the Pirates look for
Borel and Edwards in the stolen base
category. Jason Head should also see
playing time in the outfield.
The Pirate coaching staff does its
homework when scouting junior col-
lege players. Overton said he hopes
that by bringing in this new talent

Bowe may know belts
but not how to be king
Boxing still waiting for a true
heir to the throne
By Warren Sumner
Assistant Sports Editor
Boxer Riddick Bowe is the current
heavyweight champion of the world. He
is one of the richest men in America, and
one of the most criticized.
He is blasted in the media for beating
contenders deemed by the media as "out
of shape or in some way unworthy of
challenging for his title.
He is belittled for beating Evander
Holyfield for the championship, who was
also thought of as unworthy of the title. In
fact, in Bowe's victory over Holyfield, the
former champion received more respect
in defeat than Bowe did for winning the
title. Even today the champion is torn
apart for dodging Lennox Lewis, despite
Bowe and his management's claim that it
is for business reasons.
Bowe is criticized for being some-
thing less than ideal in serving as the
primary representative of the sport of
boxing. Considering the profile of the
majority of athletes in this profession, this
assumption may well be correct.
Boxing's athletes, by a vast majority,
are not players in television's media cir-
cus. They are not able to inflate their
image with big talk and dazzling staging.
They often compete in dark, back-alley
gyms, paying for local notoriety with
sweat and blood. A precious few can
become wealthy off their earnings, but
most live as paupers, working other jobs
to support their sadistic hobby. Boxing is
both a sport and a way of life, and often its
punishments far outweigh its awards.
The boxer must incorporate tremen-
dous skill and speed to succeed at his
craft. He must have strength and endur-
ance to inflict punishment on his oppo-
nent, and take that which is inflicted on
him. His training regimen is fierce, nearly
as destructive as the fight he is training
for. Most times his winnings don't equal
to the expense of gym membership, only
when he joins the upper ranks of profes-
sional boxing can he support his addic-
tion to fighting.
Once the boxer finds a promoter, he
can join these coveted ranks. This busi-
ness official, a mixture of mobster and
circus ringmaster, is a necessary evil for
boxing success. Given the reputation of
these promoters, it isn't too difficult to see
who makes the real money in this profes-
sion. Yet, the boxer trains on, waiting for
his chance. And finally, if the promoter
phenagles him into a big fight, he gets it.
Now, the stakes are high, a failure
can be suicide, and a success could still
mean little. Often a knockout at these
stages means the end of a career, yet a
victory can mean everything. Eventually,
after a multitude of fights, broken noses,
and black eyes, the fighter finally gets a
shot at the title. He meets the champion in
the ring for the title, the glory and, if he
wins, a whole host of pressures from be-
ing an international celebrity.

way to second place, racking an impres-
sive4-l margin before falling short. Shawn
Bartley and Devin Scully came in second
and third, respectively, for the men's.
Bartley placed second in the chess
tournament as well. He must now choose
between representing ECU in chess or
bill iards; if he chooses chess, fourth place
winner Rodney Strickland (who won last
year's tournament) will take his place in
the billiards competition.
Ben Kerns took f i rst place in the chess
tournament and Jaspar Tyson placed
third. Both Tyson and Kerns won last
year's tournament and will return this
year to Knoxville for a rematch.
For men's table tennis, Ramon
Navarro and Chad Warrick will repre-
sent ECU. Navarro won last year's tour-
nament for ECU. No women signed up
for table tennis.
In men's singles bowling, Keith Webb
and Greg Schehr will roll into Knoxville
for ECU. In the co-rec tournament, Ray
Chilcote, Winn Woodington, Chicora

Aschampion, mostnotably as
the heavyweight champion, an
athlete must contend with celeb-
rity status tha t dwarfs most enter-
tainers. Not only must this person
develop skills as an athlete, but
must become a genuine personal-
ity. Some past contenders have
seemed bom to this role, whocould
forget the star appeal of
Muhammad Ali, or "Marvelous"
Marvin Hagler or boxing's largest
personality (and midsection)
George Foreman. All seemed to
handle the ca mera's eye better than
they handled most opponents.
Boxing fame, however, has
brought on its casualties. Mike
Tyson, after becoming famous,
abused his star quality in such a
manner that lead to his eventual
imprisonment. Even more unfor-
tunate are the rare deaths and in-
juries that boxing brings.
None will forget the death of
Korean boxer Doo-Koo Kim at the
hands of Ray "Boom-Boom"
Mancini. There are countless com-
petitors whoare "punch-drunk

Boxers must keep in the best
possible condition to be able to
merely compete in the ring. Any
sign of weakness will be exploited
by an opponent. Unlike many
sports, there aren't many avail-
able shortcuts when its just you
and another person trying to beat
the s� out of each other. Boxers
must constantly develop their
wallet off of it. The current heavy-
weight titleholder Riddick Bowe,
with hisoutgoing personality and

have little trouble find ingemploy-

But is Bowe the person to rep-
resent the true boxer? Is he the best

tion of the Ali's and Marciano'sof
That is a question that only
time will answer. Perhaps Bowe
will reign long over the boxing
throne, perhaps he will abdicate it
on his next fight.
The only thing that is assured
is tha t when Bowe does leave the
game, he will leave it a wealthy
But in the midst of all these
