Last week, People United to Support
the Handicapped (P.U.S.H.) sponsored
Disability Awareness Week. Events ranged
from information for better awareness of
disabilities and an obstacle course. The
week culminated in a day where various
faculty and students took on a disability

in the program agreed that taking on a
disability increased their awareness of
problems that handicapped individuals
face every day.
Christy Green, an assistant coordi-

her disability (loss of her dominant arm)
served as a frustrating experience.

Troy Dreyfus, SG A chief of staff and
chair of the Student Welfare Committee,
originally proposed an anti-tuition hike

resolution pending further research.

Grads develop more skin cancer
As if getting a college degree is not hard enough, now there is
evidence thatitsbenefits could be lethal. Malecollege graduates are2.6
times more likely to develop a type of deadly skin cancer known as
malignant melanoma than a male who never graduated high school,
according to a study by Dr. Peter Lee and Dr. Mark Silverman, both
formerly of the New York University School of Medicine. According
to the study, the more education received, the more melanoma they
suffered. Silverman noted that college-educated people with high
incomes tend to workindoors in offices and are not regularly exposed
to the sun, except on weekends. Intermittent sun exposure to un-
tanned skin can result in severe sunburn, which is a major risk factor

Three more students die in gunfire
The president of Bethune-Cookman College called for stricter
gun control at a memorial service for three students who were shot to
death near campus, bringing to six the number of college men who
have been killed in violent encounters in the past year. Four men were
arrested in the killings of David Thomas, 23, of Daytona Beach,
Kenneth M. White, 19, of Oarkstan, Ga. and Henry Eaddy, 19, of
Sanford, Fla. A fourth student, Bernard Smith, of Daytona Beach, was

Bank robber suspects tied to "White Power" group
(AP) � The head of a North
Carolina white supremacist group
saysone of the two men charged in
a Wilson bank holdup is a group
member, but he says the organiza-

Kurt Eugene Latimer, 27, the
Wendell resident charged with
robbing the bank, isadues-paying
member of the Confederate
Knights of America, said David
Mehus, the organization's North

Investigators from five fed-

the week looking into the Feb. 9
incident, which led to a car chase
and a shootout in which two law
enforcement officers were injured
and civilians were caught in the
cross fire. A 71-year-old man was
kidnapped during the attempt and
forced to drive to Virginia after
the failed robbery attempt.
Mehus, grand dragon of the
CKA, said his group was not in-
volved in the robbery attempt.

Over half of buildings arc totally or
partially inaccessible to persons
confined to whc Hchairs
Disability awareness on the ECL campi is should press
on a lot more minds than it does now.
More than half of the buildings on cmpus are either
partially accessible to wheelchabound individuals or
completely inaccessible. Jarvisand i hming residence halls,
along with the entire College Hill, h e yet to open theii
doors to physically challer r persons. Though the list of
partially accessible building is greater than the totally
inaccessible, the administration should make this a prime
concern when talking of c?m; : ij provements.
Currently, roughly 15 buildings are partially acces-
sible to wheelchairs. These biiklinjs include Austin, Rawl,
Ragsdale, Whichard, Spi Ima � �, Flanagan, the Infirmary and
Minges Coliseum. The definition of partially accessible
means that the person will probably only be able to get to
the ground floor. Classes or appointments on the second,
third or higher floors will just have to be held elsewhere,
United to Support
(P.U.S.H.) held Dis-
Week. This week
was designed to in-
form students and
faculty alike of the
problems that physi-
people face on a
daily basis. What
members of this group
ask for is not a person's pity or sympathy, but the respect
that one should have for every person, no matter what their
People tend to treat handicapped individuals as a
separate class of human beings, moaning that they can't
understand or believe how a person can live the way they
do. People with a disability, whether it be a wheelchair,
blindness or any other ailment, are exactly that � people.
They feel the same things that other people feel, live life the
same way other people do � don't make the mistake of
underestimating what a person can do with his or her m ind
if his or her body is impaired in some fashion.
Don't stare or turn your eyes away when you see a
handicapped individual. If you're that curious, go up to
them and talk them. But don't act like their life has been
taken away from them because they're physically im-
paired. "My God! What happened to you?" is nor the way
to go about handling the situation. Treat them as you
would anybody else. Just understand that they may have
additional needs and concerns.
All of this comes back to the accessibility of wheel-
chairs on this campus. Being confined to a wheelchair may
not be the only d isabili ty, but it does serve as a good starting
point to greater awareness. Next time you're out on cam-
pus, take a look at whether or not a person in a wheelchair
could be where you are. You may complain about having
to climb three flights of stairs to get to your class, but is it
really that big of an inconvenience? If so, then think again.
ECU needs to step up its improvements to accommo-
date the needs of physically challenged individuals. Small
steps have been taken, but it's just not enough. If people
took the time to become more aware of the people around
them, then maybe this campus can start to better the
equality of life inside its halls.

Animal testing considered brutal, unnecessary
Animal rights activists are
having a tough time getting sup-
port these days and most people
opposed to the fuss simply aren't
being informed to the horrors that
lie behind what the media wants
you to know.
Millions of laboratory ani-
mals � mice, rats, dogs, cats,
monkeys�sacrifice their health,
and often their lives, in the name
of "science testing everything
from cleaners to cosmetics to
children's toys. Before it reaches
your supermarket shelves, most
"new" or "improved" products
go through a battery of tests to
make sure they are safe for hu-
mans. In the process, some 14
million animals die each year.
Over 50 million more are put
through some kind of testing, pos-
sibly resulting in the animals'
Some tests are brutal. Cos-
metics companies are the worst.
Some unnecessary, cruel and un-
reli.il� ' tests used by cosmetics
� Lethal Dose 50: a test

test substance until at least half of
the group dies. This test is now
being replaced by the supposedly
more humane Limited Dose Re-
� Limited Dose Response

biggest dose a human is ever
likely to encounter. That single,
fixed dose is then administered
to rabbits and their responses are
� The Draize Eye Irritancy
Test: conscious rabbits are re-
strained and the test substance is
dripped into their eyes. The dam-
age is measured over a period of
days. Apart from the extreme cru-
elty involved, this test is demon-
� Skin Irritation and Sensi-
tization Test: animals, usually
guinea pigs or rabbits, have fur
shaved or ripped off their backs,
a test substance is applied and

tions can include bleeding, in-
flammation and ulceration of the
There are effective, safe al-
ternatives to these tests. Many
companies against animal test-
ing choose ingredients with a long
history of safe human use and
raw materials that are microbio-
logically tested and subjected to
the latest analytical techniques in
research labs. The Neutral Red
Release Test is used for irritancy
and "Testskin" is human skin ac-
tually grown in the test tube. In
place of the Draize Test, laborato-
ries are using Eytex � a natural
protein culture test which can
predict eye irritation in humans.
So I challenge anyone who
believes that animal testing is hu-
mane and necessary. Even the
Food and Drug Administration,
who has ju risd iction over cosmet-
ics, has no set policy about ani-
mal testing in the cosmetics in-
dustry. In fact, what they do say
is often contradictory, allowing
both sides of the issue to claim
that the FDA is on their side. The
FDA has no authority to require
any animal testing, but instead
urges cosmetic manufacturers to
conduct appropriate safety tests.
"Urges" won't cut it.
More than 300 companies
currently make products that are
not tested on animals, according
to People for the Ethical Treat-
ment of Animals. Sorting larough
the hundreds of companies is
made easier with PETA's publi-
cation, Shopping Guide for Caring
Consumers. The publication in-
cludes lists of companies that
don't test on animals, what types
of products they carry,and where
the products are available. To or-
der, write to PETA, P.O. Box
42516, Washington, DC. 20015.
Maybe someday people will
wise up to what's happening right
under their noses. Jeremy
Bentham, an 18th Century phi-
losopher, was a man before his
time. He wrote: "The question is
not, can they reason? Nor, can
they talk? But, can they suffer?"
Food for thought, everyone.
It is the mark of the cultured man that
he is aware of the fact that equality is an
ethical and not a biological principle.
Letters to the Editor
Racism considered 'allergy' to different people
To the Editor:
A white student said to
me just the other day, "Blacks
ism. That only breeds more
racism I can't even begin to
count the number of time I have
heard students of all ethnic
backgrounds say, "Race rela-
tions are improving. Why are
blacks always stirring up the
issue? Why are they always
bringing it up?"
Well, 1 have written to
say that racism is alive and
kicking, as evidenced by the
article "Student forced to leave

cation which appeared in the
Feb. 11 issue of the newspaper.
Oh, yes. Racism is still
around. It just has more covert

buy Staton out of the room.
As an African-American
woman, I was greatly of-

It makes no sense that "edu-

tivated, although original,
scheme to insure that she will
never have to share a room
with a black student.
I believe that Taylor is

Much to the delight of parents, Disney's
latest live-action film belongs in the latter cat-

manages a broad appeal that any adult could
enjoy, with or without children.
Like Old Yeller, Homeward Bound is an

Hoopsters fall to Monarchs of ODU
By Billy Weaver
When the Bud Light Daredevils per-
form at college basketball games, the home
team has won 95 percent of the games. EC U
fell into the five percent. In Minges Coli-
seum, Saturday, the Pirates fell to ODU 73-
60 in a hard fought battle. The final score
does not reflect thewaythegamewasplayed,
however. ECU came out playing solid de-
fense and matching up offensively with a
bigger and more physical ODU team.
Lester Lyons and freshman Kareem Ri-
chardson combined for 17 of ECU's 29 first
half points to lead the Monarchs 29-27 at
halftime. The Pirates came out of the locker
room after halftime and jumped out to a 36-
30 lead, ECU's biggest of the game.
However, the turning point of the game
was sent to the line to shoot a one-and-one.
Larkin'sfirstshotmissedand was rebounded
by teamate Keith Jackson who scored the
goal and was fouled to put ODU up 55-50.
ECU suddenly found themselves playing
With 2:51 left, Ronnell Peterson sank a
three-pointer to pull the Pirates within three,
63-60. Unfortunately, that was the end of all
Pirate scoring. The Monarchs dominated
the offensive boards and scored 10 unan-
swered points to put the Pirates away 73-60.
ODU improves to an impressive 17-6
while the Pirates fall to a dismal 9-15. ECU
may see the Monarchs again in the first

East Carolina sent nine batters

ning, and johnny Beck struck out
nine batters in eight innings to lead
the Pirates (4-2) to a 12-2 win over

Garner High, where he was
coached by Jabo Fulghum. He had
an exceptional high school ath-
letic career, lettering in baseball,
basketball and football. Pat was
named to the 1990 All-State base-
ball squad as an honorable men-
tion after compiling a 6-0 record,
0.93 earned run average, and a
.416 batting average his senior
year. He also showed his athletic
versatility by throwing for over
1200 career yards as Garner's
quarterback and averaging 10
points and five assists for the bas-
ketball team his senior season.
"In him, 1 saw natural ability
and raw talent (he was) a
diamond in the rough Head
Coach Gary Overton said.
Just as noteworthy was
Watkins' high school academic
career. He was an honor student,
AthleticAcademic Award win-
ner, and North Carolina Scholar,
all while participating in three
sports a year. These are some of
the attributes that attracted
Overton to him. Watkins has con-
tinued his hard work in the class-
room here at ECU as a physical
education major. He is a three-
time honor roll student and has a
grade point average near 3.0.
By focusing solely on base-
ball, instead of three sports, he
has become one of the most pro-
lific hitters and speedsters on the
Pirate squad. As a freshman, he
hit .314 with one homer and 13
runs batted in, playing 47 games
for the Pirates, with 40 starts. In
1992 Watkins hit .267, boosted his
HR total to six, doubled his RBI
total, and swiped 16 bases. This
season, Watkins is off to a torrid
start, hiuing over .350 with three
homers and three stolen bases in
the Pirates' first five games.
Pat has also matured as a
player, mentally and physically-
"He, himself, has refined his

Off the field, Pat Watkins is
described by Clark as the kind of
person who is "nice, thoughtful,
and laid-back the kind of guy
who would do anything for you
In his spare time Watkins en-
joys playing golf, watching TV
and hanging out with friends.
However, when on the field, Pat
Watkins brings an inner level of
intensity to the game.
"Pat plays and performs qui-
etly and gets the job done, letting
