State community colleges will see new changes
By Jason Williams
Condoms get rated at university
Northern Illinois University's health center distributed
35,000 condoms to be judged by students for "appearance,
sensualnesscomfort, smell, taste, lubrication and sense of secu-
rity butnot everyone was pleased by TheGreat Condom Rating
Contest. Health officials said the Feb. 22-26 event was supposed
to promote safe sex and AIDSawareness.Butcritics said itsimply
promoted behavior that spread disease and charged that the
contest literature may have misrepresented the condoms failure
rate among college-age users. "We copied the idea directly from
Stanford said contest coordinator Michael Haines of Health
Services. "The contest provides feedback so we can find out
student preferences, while we give them educational materials
Ban on hate speech dropped
The University of Connecticut has dropped a ban against
fighting words in its student code of conduct because of its
vagueness, officials said. The section on fighting words "created
a false sense of hope and expectations that regulations could be
used to keep people from behaving improperly, which isn't
true said university spokesman Richard Vielleux. "It was a
setup for failure because ittakesout the educational component,
saying that by inference, people could be using rulings to regu-
late behavior, and not education. Vielleux said there was no
controversy on campus about dropping the ban on fighting
words, which had been invoked five times in the past three years.
Four cases were upheld, and one case was denied.
Students unclog drains, change bulbs
How many students does it take to install a light bulb? It
depends on how well trained they are in American University's
dormitory maintenance program. A problem arose when stu-
dents living in campus housing complained that it took too long
to get simple work requests taken care of, such as fixing ceiling
tiles, changing light bulbs, unclogging stopped-up sinks and
applying touch-up paint. The Residence Hall Association and
administrators worked together to come with the idea of a
student maintenance crew, which started work Feb. 1. Currently
18 students work 20 hours a week doing minor jobs at the
residence halls in exchange for free housing in a double room and

Following the recommenda-
tions of a recent report from the
Government Performance Audit
Committee (GPAC), North
Carolina's Community College sys-
tem will be undergoing some
changes in the near future.
In a meeting held February
11, the State Board of Community
Colleges imposed a moratoriumon
the establishmentof new campuses
or satellite centers for the Commu-
nity College system.
The Board, in combination
with community college presidents
and trustees, must now develop'
new guidelines for building new
colleges, and expanding existing
According to Board Chair-
man William F. Simpson, the De-
partment of Community Colleges
'draft clear and firm guide-
lines which recognize the avail-
ability of technology and trans-
portation, locateany new facilities
to minimize theimpacton existing
colleges,campusesor centers, and
that apply regional program shar-
In their December 1992 re-
port, GPAC expressed a concern
that community colleges were be-
ing established and opened with-
out any guiding criteria to govern
Growing out of that same
GPAC report are two bills intro-
duced to the North Carolina State
Senate on February 19 concerning
tuition for community colleges.
S.B.270directs the State Board
of Community Colleges to develop
a tuition policy that "limits tuition
to less than one-fifth of the per
capita funding for community
collegesS.B. 272 requires that tu-
ition be set at "approximately
twenty percent or the cost of ed uca-
tion The bill also provides for tu-
ition "to be increased proportion-
ately when the cost of education
justifies an increase in tuition
GPAC found that although
students at community colleges
currently pay 19.2 of the cost of
education, the second lowest rate
in the nation, they still pay a larger
relative share of the cost of educa-
tion tan students at UNC system
As a result, the two Senate
bills will keep community college
tui tion at close to the current level
for now. As the cost of education
increases; however,tuition may go
up as well.
The Senate isnow consider-
ing another GPAC recommenda-
tion that would raise the tuition
rates of the 16-member UNC sys-
tem, including ECU. Since, on av-
erage, UNC system students cur-
rently pay 10.9 of the cost of
education, GPAC suggested in-
creasing that percentage to 16 to

Feds shine bright lights on cult compound
WACO, Texas (AP) � Sta-

where a religious cult has been
holed up for more than two
weeks, a new tactic by federal
agents trying to end the standoff.

On the sixth day, electricity

lights were the latest effort to put
pressure on the cult.

Tuition rates on rise,
Current Senate bill better than
last, still needs improvement
before going into effect
Higher tuition rates loom on the horizon, with no
visible means of stopping the deluge from drowning the
average student in a sea of bills and debts.
Today's episode of All My Dollars focuses on a new
NorthCarolinaSenatebillthat,if passed, will begin in the
1994-95 academic year. Through the following four years,
the bill will phase its effects, concluding by the 1998-99
academic year. By the onset of the 21st century, students
in North Carolina will face an increase that may possibly
withhold higher education from some people.
The bill states that the North Carolina General As-
sembly has found that the current "tuition policy both
for undergraduates and graduates, and both for residents
and nonresidents, needs to be reexamined The bill
suggests that undergraduate residents should pay at
least 16 percent of educational costs, and leaves higher
tuition rates for graduates up to the Board of Governors
of the University of North Carolina.
Nonresident tuition will be raised even higher than
residents, effectively blocking out most, if not all, out-of-
state students from receiving an education at any UNC
institution. The bill proposes that nonresident tuition be
increased to "approximately 75-100 percent of the educa-
tional costs and general costs of education
The Government Performance Audit Committee
(GPAC) found that UNC students currently pay 10.9
percent of their cost of education. By raising the out-of-
state tuition rates to 75-100 percent, the
General Assembly is effectively adding
another zero to the $6,000 that non-

students from UNC col-
leges, limiting the student
pool drastically and dropping
revenues into the1 danger zone.
Students on campus have complained that desper-
ately needed improvements on campus, such as financial
aid and Joyner Library renovations, are not receiving the
attention that they deserve. They want the revenue from
this current bill to be earmarked for these projects, above
Opponents of the increase have stated that tuition is
high enough as it currently is and any increase will only
hurt existing and future students. But these are the same
people who bemoan the educational condition of our
university. What these people must realize is that money
constitutes the bottom line here � if you want better
facilities on this campus, then you'll have to pay the
Though the current Senate bill is more acceptable
than previous ones, it too must be revised and amended.
The current disparity between in-state and out-of-state
tuition rates is too large to ensure a semblance of equality
at this university. Granted, out-of-state students should
pay more to receive education in this state, but 75-100
percent is just too large a mouthful to swallow for stu-
Raise the tuition in order to improve the quality of
education at ECU. On the same note, make it equal in
respect to the amount that each person would pay. If not,
in five to six years, the UNC system may find itself with
a much bigger problem than lack of quality � lack of

that this is extortion disguised as

calls "business"�often "big" busi-

taxing themselves all the same.

the price of its prcxiuct, it figures the

which results in a higher price. It's

distilled, it comes down to AC,
which means higher taxes equals
higher prices. Business is just a
middleman, passing its tax expense
on to the consumer. It loses nothing,
because we pay its tax increases in
In some cases, the business
does not pass the entire tax along to
the consumer, but absorbs it. This
does not mear that the amount a
business absorbs magically disap-

someone's pocket, usually theowner,
or owners. Most owners are com-
mon citizens � young couples sav-

You're sirring around yourapartment, kill-
ing some time flipping between MacGyver on
USA and Tiny Toons on Fox. You go to answer
the door and find two or three of your friends
standing in your doorway with their hands in
theirpockets, wantingtoknow what'sgoingon.
They come in, grab a couple of beers,
situate themselves in your living room and ask
that inevitable question that most people dread
"So, what are we going to do tonight?"
If you've been on the opposite end, asking
the question, what's the worst � and usual �
answer that you get?
"I don't care
The scary thing about those three little
words is that most people make their life deci-
sions on such a laid-back attitude. So many
people walk around today not thinking�usu-
ally not caring � about what goes on around
them. They believe that if they don't mess with
anything, then it'll all work out in the end. They
expect thatgood things will just come their way,
with little or no effort being put behind them.
Wrong! The big X, the biggoose-egg, nada,
zip, nil, nothing. Thank you for playing, there
are some lovely parting gifts waiting for you at
the door. Don't let it hit you in the butt on the
way out. Get the picture? Hmrnm??
How can anyone expect anything good to
come out of lifeifyou don't putany effort intoit?
Do people think that if they just lift their eyes to
heaven that luckand prosperity will fall on them
like some soft cloud around their shoulders?
More likely than not, the truth will fall on them
� it'll just be a iron-cast safe on their head, that's
all. Hey, what'reyou gonna do, right?Justshrug
your shoulders, whistle a little tune and keep
walking down that lonely road.
Wake up! Hello, McFly! Get off your lazy
butt and put some work into your life. Cliches
only become cliches because they are truths that
have been overused. So when someone says tha t
good things only come when you work for
them, granted, it may be a little trite, but there's
got to be a kernel oi truth in there somewhere.
Why not look for it instead of sitting on your ass
and gathering moss?
People moan and complain about how
their lives are so bad and how nobody loves
them and how life is so rough. Wahhhh! Write
a letter if you've got a beef. Hell, you'll actually
bedoing something instead ofjustrubbingyour
eyes with your hands like a three-year-old whose
ice cream cone was taken away.
In short, put some effort into vour life. The
rewardsand benefits of hard work far outweigh
any risks that you might incur along the way.
Work at a job, a relationship, or whatever is
giving you some trouble. Don't let it stagnate
under the hope that it'll go away � more often
than not, it just gets worse.

his forte had always been the
more difficult songs that Queen
recorded, it only stands to rea-

pop, as have been the last three

correct to make this assump-

like they could be Queen songs,
May doesn't stay in that mode

tremendously, mixing ballads

("Resurrection "Love To-

songs ("Let Your Heart Rule

He's responsible for, in some form

Kirby also worked for DC Comics
and created characters like the New

He has inspired many writers and

He's drawn more comics than any

TheCA A Women's Tournament was
held this weekend at the Old Dominion
University Fieldhouse in Norfolk, Va.
The East Carolina Lady Pirates entered
the tournament as the No. 5 seed and
had high hopes of duplicating the per-
formance by ECU in the Men's CAA
tournament. The Lady Pirates faced No.
4 seed George Mason in the first round of
ECU dominated the Lady Patriots
the entire game. The Lady Pirates led
GMU 41-23 at halftime and led by as
much as 24 points early in the second
"The first half was totally uncharac-
teristic of our season GMU coach Jim
Lewis said. GMU found themselves in
foul trouble early.
Eventually, three Lady Patriots start-
ers would foul out. George Mason also
found it hard to convert easy layups
On the other side of the ball, the
Lady Pirates seemed to do everything
right. Rhonda Smith led all scorers with
22 points and Gaynor O'Donnell set a
tournament record with 13 assists.
Two other games followed the ECU
rout and both ended in similar upsets.
William and Mary, seeded seventh in
the tournament, came from 11 points
down to knock off No. 2 James Madison
60-58. American, No. 6 seed, overcame
an eight point deficit to beat No. 3 Rich-
mond on a last second shot by Karen
No. 1 Old Dominion was the only
favored team to win in the tournament.
ODU topped No. 8 UNCW and would
host ECU in the semifinals.

ODU entered the CAA tournament
undefeated in conference play at 14-0
and had swept the Lady Pirates in the
regular season. ECU was looking for their
first win over the Lady Monarchs in five
meetings, including a loss in the CAA
tournament finals last year, but the depth
of scoring by Old Dominion over-
whelmed the Lady Pirates.

in this semifinal game. The Lady Mon-

i vanced to the semifinals. She ran a 7.02,
a- school record, in the semifinals but
missed the finals by one place. She
placed 7thinthe200mdash witha time
of 24.41 seconds. Her time set a new
school record and is faster than her
outdoor 200m record.
Susan Schram placed ninth in the

felt Schram could have easily been top
six in the meet but she struggled on her
early throws. Her last throw of 44' 51
4" was enough for 9th but she missed
the finals by one place. Justice said
he was, "disappointed for her" be-
ca use it was her last collegiate meet.
Two freshman also competed
for ECU in the meet. Carla Powell
ran 7.50 seconds in the 55m dash.
Jennifer Kalanick ran in the 55m
hurdles, but hit the first hurdle and
failed to finish the race.
The men's track team competed
twice during spring break. Their
first meet was the IC4A champion-
ship meet in Boston on March 7th.
Charles Miles lead the tea m with his
first place finish in the 200m dash.
His time of 21.19 seconds was good
enough toqualifyhim for theNCAA
meet the following weekend.
Miles, competing at the NCAA
meet in his home town of India-
napolis, ran the 200m dash in 21.47
seconds. His time wasgood for third

Miles and Brent Gibson both
ran 637 seconds and tied for
fifth place. Corey Brooks placed

Mackey holds onto lead in Iditarod
UN ALAKLEET, Alaska (AP)�
Rick Mackey was holding on to a
one minute lead as he left the
Unalakleet checkpoint Sunday
night, 862 miles into the 21st Iditarod
Trail Sled Dog Race.
Mackey, who won the race in
1983, left the checkpoint on the
Bering Sea Coast at 9:22 p.m one
minute before Jeff King.
The two are the only teams re-
ported out of Unalakleet, a city of
about 700 and the first checkpoint
on windy Norton Sound.
Dee Dee Jonrowe and Martin
Buser reached the checkpoint at
about6:30p.mbuthad not left four
hours later, race officials said.
As the leaders in the 1,100-mile
race to Nome began their final 270
miles, it appeared King and
Mackey's teams had established
Jonrowe and King had been
trading the lead for the past two
days, with Buser's team beginning
to slow after setting the pace for the
race's first week.
Buser told Alaska Public Radio
Network late Saturday that his team
had caught a bug that has plagued
other mushers. As a result, he said,
his dogs needed more rest and
weren't in a position to keep up
with King and Jonrowe, who were
leading at that point.
"This mightbe the turningpoint
in the race Buser said. "At a given
point you can't do just your pro-
gram anymore. You have to react to
what other people are doing
Mackey, in third place at mid-
day, captured the lead by speeding
to Unalakleet from Kaltag. He ran
the 90 miles in 10 hours, about an
hour faster than King. Mackey still
had 19 dogs out of Unalakleet, the
iargest team in the race. Four-time
winnerSusan Butchersaid Mackey's
dogs looked like the strongest team.
Butcher was in fifth place Sun-
day, but with just 10 of the 18 dogs
she began the race with. She said she
was concerned about finishing and
appeared ready to concede any
hopes of winning this year.
Race rules require mushers to
finish with at least eight dogs.
"The thing that's in the back of
my mind, I'm thinking, can I even
finish this race?" she said.
At the current pace, the winner
should cross the finish line some-
time Wednesday after completing a
mandatory 12-hour layoveratWhite
Mountain, 77 miles from Nome.
More than $400,000 in prize
money will be awarded to the top
finishers mis year, with the winner
taking home $50,000.

tied the game. It missed and Ike
Copeland came down with the
huge rebound. Copeland was then
fouled with 14.3 seconds to play.

throw shooter,converted bothends

a five-point lead and the CAA
