Media Board enacts alcohol policy for WZMB
By Joe Horst
The Media Board recently
closed a year-long issue with
the enactment of an alcohol
policy governing actions be-
tween WZMB and local clubs.
In February of 1992, the
Media Board issued a memo-
rand urn halting any future ben-
efits that might be held at local
clubs. On advice from the uni-
versity attorneys' office, the
Board concluded that any such
event would hold the univer-
sity open to civil liability law-
Through various memo-
, randums and discussions, the
( Board came to the conclusion
mat a policy would have to be
enacted to use as a guideline
fok any future events. Media
Board chairperson Terri Avery
met with the university attor-
neys and together, they came
up with a new policy that was
accepted at the Feb. 11 meet-
The policy stated that staff
members of WZMB may con-
duct live-remotes from local
businesses that serve alcohol. It
limits thisabilityby placing vari-
ous restrictions on the time,
manner and frequency these
live-remotes may be held.
For example, before the
policy was enacted, local busi-
nesses could hold benefits for
WZMB. This constituted one of
the major problems when con-
cocting the new policy. When
previous benefits were held, the
station would recieve money
that would go directly back to
improving the qualitv of the sta-
tion. Now, tne policy specih-
cally states that benefits for
WZMB will only be allowed "in
locations where alcohol is not
Kevin Brelsford, program
director of WZMB, was pleased
with the results of the policy,
with the exception of the benefit
"Overall, I'm happy that
the matter was finally resolved
Brelsford said. "I'm pleased with
"I wish the policy didn't
restrict the clubs from holding
benefits for WZMB, though.
These benefits helped the sta-
tion in the past, they raised a
lot of money for the station
General manager Tim
Johnson agreed with Brelsford
on the single bone of conten-
"The school is still torn
over who is responsible when a
tavern hold s a benefit Johnson
said. "So, they still won't let
clubs hold benefits for WZMB
because they think WZMB might
Other points of contention
that the policy made dealt with
the manner with which adver-
tisements would be done, mon-
etary gains from the events and
members' affiliation with
WZMB as a radio station.
The policy stated that ad-
vertisements would be limited
See WZMB page 4
According to a new Media Board policy, local businesses will no longer be able to host any benefits for WZMB
if the establishment sells alcohol.

Constance Penley admits she had twinges of embarrass-

had every right to be squeamish about the class subject: The fou r-

scientists to chat about different topics every week ranging from
"Biomechanics of Living Tissues to "Chartinga National Course

course is toallow undergraduateswith no background in science
to come and be educated in an entertaining way Lin said.
"There will be a minimum of graphs and charts. It's not all fun
and games, though. There will be serious science. While students
have to pass an exam at the end of the course, there are no
textbooks and no exams.

Country must look

"It's all right to be ethnically

This statement is the crux behind ECU's New Gen-
eration Campus Ministries program last week that pro-
moted unity through religion, as opposed to separatism.
NGCM's president, Bryan Evans said that it was
time for students and individuals "to look to ourselves as
leaders. This program presents a strategy to go beyond
the past and to look forward to the future
Evans also said that "people need to hear a fresh
perspective He commented that the majority of people
are following doctrines based on separatism.
"We need to be at peace with one another instead of
at war Evans said. "We are one
As the jury is currently being selected in the civil suit
against the officers accused of beating Rodney King, the
country waits breathlessly to see if another installment of
the Los Angeles riots looms on the horizon. Police chiefs
in major (and minor) cities around the nation anxiously
await the outcome that will determine whether this coun-
try will be subjected to another three days, if not more, of
terror and fear.
The L.A. riots showed us just how separated this
country has become. Mass lootings and burnings oc-
curred in the city, not discriminating between black and
white store owners. Videotape footage showed brutal
beatings of both blacks and whites; police were lost as to
how to combat the overwhelming flood of looters and
A drive through the riot area today shows a person
the slow comeback that business owners are trying to
make. Burnt-out shells of stores and supermarkets
to its knees,
pable air of
people walking as if they're
t h e
waiting for the other shoe
to drop or to be kicked once again like a stray dog
This tension shows no signs of decreasing in the near
future, either. This country must look long and hard at its
stance on racism and discrimination before any light of
hope can be seen at the end of this dark tunnel. Imagining
that the problem has gone away just because people can't
see the symptoms anymore will just make it all the more
horrifying when these same symptoms reappear in a
much more dramatic form.
To paraphrase the quote above, ethnicity should not
control a person's life, but rather make a person more
aware of his or her heritage. African-Americans have
been degraded and debased in the past, but steps are
being taken to remedy those past faults. Would having a
separate black nation be the answer to all these problems?
Absolutely not. Unity is the key here, not separatism.
Only by working together�both blacks and whites
� can this nation hope to repair the rift and wound that
racism and segregation has created. Further segregation
would only increase this rift to the point that it very well
could rival the one seen in Civil War days. The "Union"
and the "Confederacy" are two names that just may see a
resurgence, but with vastly different ideas behind them.
Rodney King's statement of "Can't we all just get
along?" has taken a lot of ribbing and kidding in the
media lately. Trite as it may sound, this saying epitomizes
the basic need of this country today and in the future.
When people can recognize that skin color is not that big
a difference, some progress can be made in America.

that comes with this form as soon
as I received it. I mustadmit that in
several years of filing taxes, this is
the first time I've sat down and
really read the information.
There's one section which
addresses some questions people
frequently ask, called "Answers to
frequently Asked Questions" (page
five of the booklet for those of you
playing along at home). One ques-
tion asks, "Do I have to file a re-
turn?" The reader is directed to
page nine where, in true govern-
ment style, a whole page is used to
basically answer, "Yes, you do ha ve

may make a gift to reduce the pub-
lic debt. If you wish to do so, en-
close a separate check with your
income tax return. Make itpayable
to 'Bureau of the Public Debt
Reading this, one overwhelming
question came to my mind: Are
Jim and Tammy Bakker writing
the tax booklets now?
The last page of the booklet
has some enlightening information.
It reads, "In fiscal year 1991 fed-
eral income was $1,054.3 billion
and outlays were $1,323 billion,
leaving a deficit of $268.7 billion
To put this into perspective for the
college student, this is like writing
a $50check for the keg when you've
only got $35 in your checking ac-
count. The federal government calls
this a budget defici t; the police call
it check kiting. Both are crimes and
should be punished as such.
Filling out theactual tax form
itself is the most fun. As the saying
goes, if you put an infinite number
of monkeys in a room with an infi-
nite number of typewriters, they'll
eventually produce an IRS tax form.
One of the first items on the
form reads'Presidential Election
Campaign : Do you want $1 to go
to this fund?" and you check yes or
no in the appropriate block. I can
see a television commercial di-
rected towards people who check
yes or no in the appropriate block.
"My friend, did you check "yes" to

Election Campaign fund on your
tax form? If you did then come on

Then there are the instruc-
tions. "Subtract line 4 from line 3. If

This brings up an interesting
question. Just where does all this
money go? On the last page of the
booklet there are two pie graphs,
one showing where federal gov-
ernment income came from in fis-
cal 1991, and the other showing
where the outlays went. Sixty-five
percent of what the government
took in came from personal income,
social security, Medicare, unem-
ployment, and other retirement

SI swimsuit issue
not worthy of
out this week. With it comes the same old
controversy: cries of soft- core pornography
and degradation of women. But to attack SI and
call it "pornographic" is unfounded. Undoubt-
edly, many feminists would have me locked
away for my views on this, but it is something
they (above all others) need to hear.
The American culture hasa problem with
sexuality. It has not and probably never will be
completely embraced, since people tend to be
scared of their own, and other's, sexuality.
Camille Paglia, a humanities instructor at The
University of the Arts in Philadelphia and au-
thor of the book Sexual Persotwe, states that:
"profanation and violation are part of the per-
versity of sex, which never will conform to
liberal theories of benevolence We've been
brainwashed to believe that the only way to be
good is to abstain from sex.
Paglia also believes that the knowledge of
"fantasies is expanded by pornography, which
is why pornography should be tolerated, though
itspublicdisplaymayreasonably be restricted
This isn't to say that it should be accessible to
everyone. Certainly children do not need to
view a Playboy or Penthouse asparlof their sexual
education. But we aren't discussing Playboy.
What we're discussing is Sports Illustrated.
Now come on, take a real look at the
swimsuitissue. Those models are there because
they want to be there. Posing that way is, very
simply, part of the job. The real issue is that
nudity, or partial-nudity, intimidates people.
People don't want to believe that the human
body is a beautiful thing. Over the years it has
been made in to something vulgar, to be hidden
away and a vessel of sin.
Many argue that women should not be
rated by how they look. Unfortunately, that is
pornography supporters twist thatand use it to
their advantage. What they're saying is that it's
O.K. to size someone up visually at first meet-
ing but to feature a woman's body in a maga-
zine is degrading. This is a blatant double-
Another argument, which is somewhat
founded, is that female athletes should be fea-
tured instead of the swimsuit issue; females are
not getting as much coverage as their male
counterparts. What if the female athletes were in
bathing suits? Would that be acceptable? I'm
sure it wouldn't, because then thev would be
featured as sex objects. I hate to say this, but we
areall objects ofsex.Weare sexual beings. Until
we realize this, there will be disa rd among all.
I'm sure the religiously pious are fainting
right about now, since sexuality is not part of
any religion'sdogma. Until we start identifying
and coming to terms with this part of ourselves,
we will be perpetuating an age-old issue.
The swimsuit issueisnot changing Ameri-
can society and hurtling it towards inevitable
destruction. In fact, ignoring this facet of our-
selves is probably destroying us more than a
So please, if you don't like to look at
beautiful women in bathing suits, don't open

their sexuality will.

Conversing with Noam Chomsky
�ditor's Note: The following
is a conversation between staff
writers Franco Sacchi and
Nathanial Meade with Noam Chomsky, which
will be printed in two parts. Lookjbr the second
installtnent in the Thursday, Feb. 18, edition.
On Feb. 9, Noam Chomsky came to
ECU and spoke at Mendenhall Theater. In
his usual bold and incisive style, Chomsky
discussed contemporary subjects ranging
from the political philosophies of David
Hume and Adam Smith, to global informa-
tion control, to the subtle influence of Ameri-
For those unfamiliar with Chomsky, he
is presently one of the most famous linguists
in the world and has had books published
works, Deterring Democracy has received
much a Mention. Now 65 years old, Chomsky
has taught since 1955 at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, where he became a
full professor at age 32. He is widely known
for his dedicated probing into the dark side
of American foreign policy, as well as his in-
depth study of information control in Ameri-
Much of what Professor Chomsky has
to say seems offensive and outlandish, yet
this is mainly because the topics themselves
are of such intense significance for our soci-
ety. For this reason, most of his work has
been published in the "alternative press"
and has remained largely hidden from the
lay public. At the same time, the mainstream
media continues to marginalize Chomsky's
Chomsky is not a pol i tician but a scholar.
Every detail, every accusation, is substanti-
ated by hisrigoroususeof primary research�
from archives and other forms of official
documentation. For this reason, his adver-
saries have repeatedly relied on a single
The following interview only skims the
surface of Chomsky's sweeping thought,
which is extremely difficult to compress in a
single article. We hope the following inter-
view will give those not present Tuesday
night at least a taste of this fascinating mind.
Here, surely, is one of the great free-thinkers
of our society. During the interview, Profes-
sor Chomsky was wearing sneakers and
had a distinct bounce in his step.
THE EAST CAROLINIAN: George
Bush's behavior during his term as presi-
dent often seemed to have traces of
Messianism. Do you think Bush ever had a
bigger plan in the geopolitical arena, a hid-
den agenda for a truly
new world order un-
der his leadership?
From this point of
CHOMSKY: I don't
accept your premise.
I think George Bush is
a minor bureaucrat
who was following
orders all his life.Take
a look at his history.
He came into national
prominence as U .N. ambassador in 1971. He
was then head of CIA, then in the House of
Representatives, then vice president and
president. He was a loyal servant of the law.
I don't think he had any grand mission �
you know, big-plan thoughts in his head.
When any president, or any leader, of any
country tries to mobilize the population for
a dangerousand violent action, they always
invent a messianic purpose.
torical exception to that.
He couldn't think of
anything, so he came up
with New World Order.
What did the words
mean? Zero. He didn't
know wha t they meant,
and nobody else knew
what they meant. It's
just tha t he had to mobi-
lize the population for
the Gulf War. The New
World Order was just a
joke. He had no concep-
tion of anything except
serving the interests of
American wealth. Clinton, as far as I know,
is about the same.
TEC: Given the complexity of modern
society and political system, very few people
seem to know where the center of power is.
From this perspective, can the president of
the United States have any real control of the
situation? Can President Clinton promote
the necessary, large scale changes mis coun-
NG Clinton won't try to promote big
change. If you look at the day after the
election, his campaign promises and ambi-
tions quickly disappeared. That's not sur-
prising. I can't imagine why anyone would
be surprised. The day after the election, the
front pages were telling us that Clinton's
advisors said theambitious social programs
they's been talking about would have to be
dumped, but that there would be a little-
discussed tax that would benefit investors.
Big surprise. Then take his position on Haiti.
Yes, he had something to say about that,
though it was contrary to what he had said
during the campaign. Now he was going to
intensify the same Bush policy he had op-
posed. And so on down the line.
If you're sophisticated, all of this is well

unfolds in the jungles of Panama.
Tom Berenger plays Gun-

a marine whose profession is
Beckett is a sniper whose
spotter gets shot as the film
opens. A civilian named Rich-

is sent to replace the slain man
and aide Beckett on his next as-

executing a Panamanian gen-

the free election slated to be held

Miller has never killed any-
one before and Beckett senses
this. Beckett feels that Miller will
be a liability unless he can be
counted on to pull the trigger in
a moment of crisis.
Sniper chronicles the mis-

through the forest to their final
destination at a seaside haci-

being not considered a crime.
The military complex actually
fosters an indifference in its re-

rests on the proposition that the

In Sniper, Thomas Beckett
interests the viewer because of
the detached manner in which
he views his job. He kills on
command and without compas-

nor fun. He kills because he can.
He's good at it.

mind, his past and future, then
the film may ha ve been on firmer
ground as an interesting study

The story they tell never re-

the crescendo is dampened by
insipid, cliched dialogue.
Miller asks Beckett about his

Those people, let's call them
"turds are everywhere. You can't
play basketball,racquetball, volley-
ball, Trivial Pursuit or make salsa
without some turd telling you or

And if they should happen to lose or

ton, D.C The sequence in D.C
which only occupies five minutes
of screen time early in the film,
plays as trivial � like actors trying
to muster enough energy to sound
ominous. The scene leaves the
viewer feeling uninvolved. As the
scene ends, one can practically vi-
sualize the actors walking off the
set at the end of the take.
The basic storyline itself plays
as cheap melodrama � an aged
veteran has to handle a young hot
shot, the young hot shot rebels but
eventually matures and ends up
saving the aging veteran's life in
the final reel.
Sniper is one of those films that
your dad might enjoy.
Sniper manages to maintain a
tense atmosphere with adequate
direction from Luis Llosa and an
eerie soundtrack that underscores
the tension evident on the screen.
The locations � Sniper was filmed
entirely on location in Panama and
Australia � add to the gritty real-
ism for which the film strives. The
use of camouflage and the art of
sniping provide an interesting side-
light to the ma in story. Even enough
plottwistsare included to keep the
film from becoming trite.
If you enjoy war films then
Sniper should keep your interest. It
chronicles war in a manner suit-
able for the types of conflicts hap-
pening in the '90s.
Sniper possesses most of the
admirable qualities of a war movie.
Unfortunately, war movies have
not as a rule, gained the distinction
of being an admirable genre like
Westerns and crime stories have.
Still, Sniper provides enough
entertainment to warrant a recom-
mendation no matter to whatgenre

Radford, George has established himself
as the most self-motivated and hardest
working diver I have ever had. Last year

position to become a finalist on both

I have ever had. She has finished first or

If it sounds as if Rose has a parental

love in the praise he gives Rohland,
Lawerence and Garbe, and it is apparent
thathe believes they will be successful this

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP)
� There's a long way to go in the
Big Ten season and no one has
conceded the conference titie to
Indiana. On the other hand,
Michigan's run at the league
championship is just about over.
"We're probably not going to

one of the favorites for both pieces

was the 11 th in a row for the Hoo-

in the nation.
Both streaks remained intact
because the Hoosiers wereable to
overcome a 13-point deficit in the
first half and one of nine points in
the second half.

Nearly all theteammatesChrisStreet
left behind came to this comer of
basketball heaven for the same rea-
sons he did and from the same kind
of small Midwestern towns that he
did. Maybe that's what made it so
strange to go on without him.
Four weeks ago today, Street
was killed in an auto accident after
leaving a team d inner and trying to
ease hiscar onto Highway 1. He was
heading back to campus for a night
class. He was 20 years old.
In some ways, the story that
began unfolding here three weeks
ago is similar to the emotional run

the 1990 NCAA tournament after

Davis notes many of the same
things that happened then happen-

but they get wound up too easily;
they never fail to lay a body on every
body that rumbles down the lane,
but sometime the play is just plain
In the week that followed
Street's death, school officials post-
poned two games toallow a proper
mourning period. Something unex-
pectedlv sweet happened: The
Hawkeyes climbed three spots in
the poll, ending it at No. 11.
The next week proved even
sweeter. First, Street's teammates

ARE YOU READY FOR
YOUR LIFESTYLE CONDOM?
The disease of AIDS has reo bed epidemic proportions; researchers
and experts state that within the. generation every person in the country
will know at least one person who has AIDS. The implications of this
prediction are staggering; AIDS is not fust something a person can
disregard. Tins disease has brought the issue of safer sex to the forefront
of our society, forcing people to think about subjects that otherwise they
would drop as uncomfortable.
The purpose of this four-part safer sex campaign is simply put � to
save lives. The East Carolinian wt in any way promoting sex; what we
are promoting is even' student's knowledge of their choice between
abstinence and safer sex. Only through information, knowledge and
common sense t an a person make this choice, one of the most important
decisions heshe will make in hisher life.
The last part of this "safer sex campaign" ties all three previous parts
into one neat bundle�how to choose a condom. Hopefully, a couple now
knows all the facts and risks that are being taken when they decide to
engage in intercourse. AIDS has made it a necessity to use a condom
whenever engaging in sex. Knowing how to buy condoms, how to use them
and how to communicate with a partner about condoms are three
essentials parts of the sexual experience. Safety is paramount here �
being assured that you are at the least risk possible will eliminate a lot of
fear and confusion.
The Past Carolinian thanks the students who modeled for this
llfeSfyle (llf-stID n 1. a way of life or style of living that reflects
the attitudes and values of an individual or group.
Communication is an integral part of the process of
sexual intercourse. Intercourse is not just confined to the
physical act alone; it encompasses the act, the foreplay and
the discussion before and after the act between mutually
consenting partners. A person may know all the facts and
figures behind AIDS and STDs, but if heshe does not feel
comfortable enough discussing them with a partner, they
lose their purpose. Agree on how to use andor purchase a
condom before having sex. The risk, lethal as it is, is just too
great not to take the time beforehand to discuss all the issues.
Most people feel uncomfortable when talking about sex
or discussing the possibilities of sexually transmitted dis-
eases. Concerns range from feelings of inadequacy to feelings
of confusion, All of these problems and fears are valid;
however, one must overcome them to protect hisher health
The first step in improving communication on sex and
condoms is to know all the facts. The more you know, the
easier it will be to discuss it out in the open. The more you
know, the more determined you'll be to engage in safer sex.
Next, plan what you want to say. Know all the questions you
have and try to anticipate all the questions your partner may
have. Decide when to bring the subject up; a quiet time may
be better than before having sex.
There are many and various reasons a partner can come
up with if heshe does not want to use a condom. Knowing
exactly how you feel about sex will help to alleviate some
confusion; these situations may help with any additional
? "I'm a virgin � "I'm not. This way we'll both be
T "You carry a condom around with you? You were
planning to seduce me � "I always carry one with me
because I care about myself. I have one with me tonight
because I care about us both
? "It destroys the romantic atmosphere � "It doesn't
have to be that way
? "I'll lose my erection by the time I stop and put it on
� "I'll help you put it on, that'll help you keep it
These examples are, by no means, all of the scenarios a
person might find hisherself in. If a person does not care
enough about hisher partner to take the time to communi-
cate, a problem exists. Sexual intercourse is between two
s � only when all parts o! this exist can
safety be totally ensured.
Buying condoms can be one of the most important
choices a person can make after deciding to have sex. The size
of a condom, the proper way to put a condom on and the
proper way to take the condom off are all essential to know
before using a condom. Some do's and don'ts follow:
On buying, condoms:
? Do check expiration date on outer package.
? Do check name of lubricant. Nonoxynol-9 is the most
recommended and provides a chemical barrier against sexu-
ally transmitted diseases.
? Do use a water-based lubricant.
? Do store in a cool dry place.
? Do carry a condom with you at all times, either FDA-
approved American or Japanese.
? Don't buy condoms made of any material other than
latex, which prevents passage of harmful germs.
T Don't buy outdated condoms.
? Don't store condoms in hot areas, like a glove compart-
ment, as heat can damage a condom.
? Don't carry a condom in a hip wallet for long periods
of time � this shortens the life of a condom.
Condoms can be bought in various sizes. Condom manu-
facturers usually indicate larger sized condoms by names
such as "Beyond Seven "Mentor" or "Magnum Smaller
sized condoms may be labelled under the phrase "a snugger
tit All sizes aside, this does not mean a man must have a
larger penis to satisfy his sexual partner.
On putting a condom on:
? Do roll condom down on penis as soon as it is erect,
before any contact with genitalia occurs.
T Do leave 14-12 inch extra space at the tip of a condom
if the condom has no nipple.
? Don't unroll condom before putting it on; roll it on all
the way toward the base of the penis.
? Don't twist, bite, or prick a condom with a pin � this
will damage the condom and may allow fluid to leak out,
which may infect a partner.
On taking off a condom:
? Do remove condom soon after ejaculation,
? Don't let the penis go soft inside partner. This could
allow the condom to drop off, with fluids being leaked out.
? Don't tug to pull a condom off � this may cause the
condom to tear.
Mutual consent between sexual partners is a necessary
ingredient before any of these factors can be considered.
Communication is a must in any relationship in order to
ensure the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
