Undergraduate catalog revisions approved by chancellor
By Joe Horst
Incoming and transfer students will
be faced with major changes in the under-
graduate catalog in the next semester.
On March 18, Chancellor Eakin ap-
proved the revised section in the under-
graduate catalog dealing with academic
regulations. An ad-hoc committee in the
Faculty Senate proposed variouschanges
in the current dropadd policy, scholas-
tic eligibility and class attendance poli-
Thedropadd policy hasbeen modi-
fied with the addition of a four-drop limi-
tation imposed on students. Students may
still drop a class up to the first 40 percent
of meetings, but they now only have up to
four drops in their academic career. Also,
the drop option is prorated, which means
that a transfer student entering the uni-
versity with past semester hours will have
less drops than a freshman student.
Course drop options break down
into the following:
� 0-31 semester hours � 4 drops
� 32-62 semester hours � 3 drops
� 63-95 semester hours � 2 drops
� 96 semester hours � 1 drop
SGA president Courtney Jones ex-
pressed the concern about the effect the
new dropadd policy would have on
"Thisdropadd policy doesn'tgive
the students the freedom to choose as
they've had in the past Jones said.
Scholastic eligibility standards have
also been modified in the upcoming cata-
log. Past retention periods, or phases in a
student's education, have placed mini-
mum grade point averages in conjunc-
tion with attempted andor transfer
hours. In the previous catalog, a student
had seven retention periods, culminat-
ing in a minimum 1.95 GPA for anyone
over 96 semester hours.
The revised standardscompressthe
seven periods into two periods, with the
cutoff being at 32 semester hours. A stu-
dent with under 32 hours must have a
1.75 GPA; a student over 32 hours must
have a 2.00.
Though he approved the revised
section, Eakin expressed some reserva-
tions about the effect the changes on
scholastic eligibility' would have on the
"I'm concerned about the effect on
students Eakin said. "I want to make
sure that there isn't any unforeseen or
undesirableeffect. Upon reflection, I have
a feeling to go back and make sure
Eakin said that he planned to talk
with Faculty Senate members to ensure
that the change wou Id not be a detrimen-
Further changes in the regulations
dealt with excused absences from class
attendance. Students may now be offi-
cially excused in the event of a death of a
family member or participation in a reli-
gious holiday. Offsetting this addition is
the deletion of student teachers having
the option of receiving an excuse from
Student Health Services to miss teaching
because of sickness. Both Eakin and Fac-
ulty Senate chairman John Moskop
agreed that they were pleased the Fac-
ulty Senate could reach a compromise
with the student government concerning
changes in the dropadd policy.
"The work of the committee and
the Faculty Senate is to be commended;
they did an excellent job on standards
Eakin said. "I'm pleased that they were
able to work out a compromise with the
"I was pleased the Senate wasable
to find a compromise Moskop said.
"This served both the interests of student
wishing to drop courses and everyone's
interest in getting classes and graduating
Though the administration looked
at the changes in a positive aspect, Jones
expressed misgivings about the effect
these changes will have all at once.
"These changes will have a nega-
tive effect Jones said. "Since both (drop
add and scholastic eligibility) will go into
effect at the same time, it will make mat-
ters even worse.
"I understand the need to raise stan-
dards, but it has to be a gradual process.
I feel there are a number of other solu-
tions to some of the problems that were
cited by the ad-hoc committee that were

Literary magazine nominated
for national design award
By Karen Hassell
Assistant News Editor
A magazine edited by
Alex Albright, an assistant
professor of English at ECU,
has recently been named a fi-
nalist in a national publica-
tion design competition.
The North Carolina Liter-
ary Review was first intro-
duced in the summer of 1992.
According to Albright, the
purpose of the magazine is to
explore and explain the con-
nections that four centuries of
writers have had with North
The competition fea-
tures over 5,000 publications
from across the nation. The
North Carolina Literary Review
has been named a finalist in the
28th Annual Society of Publica-

"We are in a large group
within the contest that is juried
very hard said Albright. "Just
getting in the show is an honor
All entries receiving
awards will be displayed at the
New York Public Library begin-
ning May 27.
Eva Roberts, a graphics de-
sign instructor in the ECU School
of Art, was the magazine's de-
signer and art director.
"The one thing is that this
award signals is its physical de-
sign. We were lucky to have Eva
Roberts designing. This award is
hers Albright said.
The competition this year
is being judged by some of the
top art directors and designers
in the country. They include:
Joel Berg of Harper's Bazaar;
Judy Garlan of the Atlanta
Monthly; Michael Keegan of The
Washington Post; and Michael

Family search service now
available at Joyner Library
By Jason Williams
For the remainder of this
month, users of Joyner Library will
have the opportunity to research
their family trees using an experi-
mental data base of genealogical
North Carolina Librarian
Maury York describes the service as
a compact disc product called
FamilySearch published by Genesys
done in conjunction with the Li-
brary of the Mormon Church mak-
ing available the extensive research
the Church has compiled over the
"The point of this service is to
make information available to
people looking for their ancestors.
Also, it could potentially be of use
for certain academic disciplines
York said. "For example, we were
recently working on a history project
where a student was researching
the women who signed a document
at the Edenton Tea Party, before the
Revolutionary War. Also, ithasuses
in sociological research, especially
in the area of demographics York
The FamilySearch resources
include four different data bases.
These include the International Ge-
nealogical Index, a worldwide list-
ing of more than 147 million names
from the years 1500-1875, the Social
Security Death Index, containing
those 395 million people who died
with social security numbers from
1962-88, the Ancestral File from the
Mormon Church, and the Family
History Library Catalog.
York said that the system was
brought to ECU on a trial basis but
will stay only if the it proves valu-
able for more than researching per-
sonal family genealogy. So far, York
said, FamilySearch hasn'tbeen fully
utilized by the various disciplines.
For researching family histo-
ries, however, anyone can use the
system, including faculty, students,
staff and other users of Joyner Li-
brary. York said that usually a per-
son brings in a name, facts about a
person, when and where that per-
son lived, and other relevant infor-
mation to begin a search. "The sys-
tem hasof course been more helpful
to some than others. I would guess
that about 50 percent of the people
aredisappointed York said.
The system will only be avail-
able until the end of the month. "We
have a limited amount of one-hour
slots left York said. Ihecomputer
is located in Joyner B02.
Anyone interested in using the
records should make an appoint-
mentwith York or Barry Munsonat

cessible on weekdays, 8 a.ra-5 p.m.
through the end of March. .

The East Carolinian
March 25, 1993
By Gregory Dickens
f" f "i TZ "1 "7i Yeltsin, Khasbulatov face off for government
catalog revised I �ssspssess; ssessbsl ssssss: z�
Changes approved by
Chancellor unneeded, will only
harm future students
Hear ye, hear ye, the annual meeting for the ECU
Board of Unnecessary Changes in Student Policy has be-
The first item of business will be to go over the old
items of business. Though some may term this redundant
� as we talk about the same thing every time we meet �
they have yet to learn that redundancy is the cornerstone to
any bureaucracy. Let us give thanks for this essential
dogma to our sacred institution, or what is more commonly
known as covering our ass.
The following have proven this institution's ability to
ignore more pressing concerns, and make mountains out of
subjects that could barely be rated molehills:
� A massive tuition hike for out-of-state students,
guaranteeing in-state exclusivity for ECU.
� A dining hall being built not 100 yards away from a
currently existing one that services six separate residence
halls with no apparent problems.
Now that past business has been attended to (not that
we won't go over it again at the next meeting), we can
concentrate on upcoming business. A list of possible topics:
� Parking? Nah, who needs it, right?
� Greater accessibility for wheelchairs on campus?
Wheelchairs, what wheelchairs?
� Changes in a perfectly acceptable academic regula-
tion policy? Hey, more mindless bureaucracy and paper-
work than you can shake a stick at? Sure, let's devote our
full attention to this most pressing and disturbing problem.
On March 18, Chancellor Eakin approved the revised
section five of the undergraduate catalog, or as it's more
commonly known, academic regulations. This section deals
with dropadd procedures, registration, grading scales,
probation and suspension and access to records. Though
most of the original section remains intact, some very
important changes have been enacted.
Most importantly, the dropadd schedule has been
amended. The policy now states that undergraduate stu-
dents may only drop up to a total of four classes in their
tenure at this university. It further states that allowable
drops are prorated, meaning that if undergraduates have a
certainnumber of hours already, your allowable drops will
be cut determined by those hours.
This amendment reeks of ex post facto. An ex post facto
law rules that a person can be held liable for past conduct
that is now considered illegal. Future transfer students will
have to suffer, losing course drops because they were
foolish enough to attend another institution before ECU.
This limitation will only serve to add to the number of
failures that this school must report � students who have
used their drops may be forced to stay in classes that they
have no hope of passing.
Another unneeded deletion is the change of the reten-
tion policies from seven to two, forcing a higher GPA for
students at ECU. Though this amendment will improve
scholastic standards in the long run, right now it will only
force many students on academic probation. This proba-
tion only allows one semester for a student to improve
before being placed on suspension from the university.
Classes may be a lot smaller if this potential problem isn't
Possibly the only beneficial change in this catalog is
the addend of an excused absence for the death of a family
member or participation in religious holidays. With this,
ECU shows that they recognize the cultural diversity on
this campus. A liberal arts college is based on this diversity;
recognizing it is another step in the walk to total equality.
This sole benefit cannot appease the problems that are
sure to be generated because of the other changes, though.
A bone is only as good for as long as the marrow lasts; after
that's gone, the hunger will return.
This meeting is adjourned.

Russian President Boris "Im
age is Everything" Yeltsin is fed up
with the stubbornness of his
country's parliament, the Congress
of People's Deputies.
He hasdecreed a state of emer-
gency and declared that his word
overrules any decisions made by
the Russian legislators. This will
remain in effect until a national ref-
erendum isheld April 25which will
determine whether or not the people
want Yeltsin to lead and if a new
constitution should be created.
The parliament was in the
midst of try ingto curtail the powers
of the Russian presidency for two
reasons: 1) To slow down reforms
aimed at introducing a free-market
economy and 2) So Yeltsin couldn't
attempt such a decree in an effort to
boost his credibility and despera-
tion in the eyes of other world lead-
ers. The parliament is led by Chair-
man Ruslan Khasbulatov, Yeltsin's
main political adversary.
In retaliation for the decree,
the Parliament has asked the Con-
stitutional Court to decide if Yeltsin
can be impeached for his impetus,
which is of questionable legal ori-
gin. The Court decided Tuesday
that Yeltsin's decree is illegal.
Khasbulatov is now in preparation
to impeach the President, which will
requirea two-thirds majority by the
If Yeltsin stays in power and
survives until the referendum, the
parliament would be denounced
by the public even further and the
majority of the legislators (80 per-
cent were once Communist hard-
liners) would hit the street. Yeltsin
would then be in the catbird seat to
influence a newly-elected parlia-
ment to pass his reforms.
If the Parliament boots Yeltsin,
his reforms and those of former Pre-
mierPresidentGorbachev, may be
erased. A still-existent support for
communism may push for a return
to the ways of the Soviet Union.
An NBC News poll reports
that 53 percent of Muscovites favor
Yeltsin with only 27 percent oppos-
ing him. An impeachment with a
subsequent unpopular Parliament
rule could result in heightened so-
cial tensions. Political theorists are
concerned that, in a worst-case sce-
nario,acivilwareither solely within
Russia or one embroiling the other
republics may occur and a new
Bosnia-Herzegovina may ensue.
Russia is seen as the touch-
stone for democracy to the other
republics and a political rewind
there may be mimicked in a
"domino effect" that has been de-
bated over for 40 years.
The Western world looks
again to the United States to deter-
mine the correct protocol. Remem-
ber the failed August coup in 1991?
The White House decided correctly
to wait and let the populace and
pi'Mic opinion choose who to put
faith in. This time, the rulingadmin-
istration may need to morally and
physically intercede. Asa source of
considerable economic support,
America may back Yeltsin and hint
(read: threaten) to stop sending
money if the president is ousted.
This would be more prudent
(egad!) than trying to influence
Yeltsin's successor, Ruslan
Khasbulatov, who mostassuredly
would vote to keep a Communist-
Yeltsin must be kept in power
in order for a more open Russia, as
well as the rest of the republics, to
exist. He has the support of the
people (more so than President
Clinton received upon hiselection)
and Yeltsin's continued adminis-
tration would utilize the Russians'
new-found voice in government.
To abandon him and the citizens
under him would greatly threaten
in the former Soviet Union in the
A bit of prevention now will
render unnecessary a substantial
political cure later.
The hallmark of our age is the tension

ECU first university to host Workout for Hope
To the Editor:
As college students, we
are faced with many problems;
the environment, the job mar-
ket, finances, crime and health
issues. Alcohol and drugabuse
is threatening the college
population, but more so sexu-
ally transmitted diseases and
AIDS are killing people every-
where � people from all walks
of life, people of every race,
people of every sexual orien-
tation. This iseveryone's prob-
lem. Everyone should be part
of the solution. Before you stop
conclusion that this is just an-
other piece about how terrible
AIDS is and how we all need
to be more careful, you might
want to see this all the way
This is all about a solu-
tion. This is about how we can
all get involved in the fight
against AIDS. This isall about
the Workout for Hope.
The Workou t for Hope is
a celebration of health, fitness
and nutrition. It is a workout
party in support of AIDS re-
search. Participants raise
money by getting sponsors
(family, friends, coworkers,
etc.) to give money. Any
amount is welcome, small or
large. All proceeds go to the
City of Hope.
The City of Hope is a re-
search facility where research-
ers work to find a cure not only
for AIDS, but cancer, diabetes
and other health problems fac-

for Hope will be held in over
80 cities nationwide. It is esti-

On March 30 from 6-8
p.m East Carolina Universirv
will be the first university in
the country to sponsor this
event. It is going to be a night
to remember and because we
will be the first, it will be a
night that will godown in ECU
history, American history and
the history of AIDS research.
There will be circuit training,
cardio-funk, STEP demonstra-
tionsand low impact aerobics.
Mark Brunetz will be the
featured presenter. Brunetz,an
ECU alumni, is currently an
international fitness consult-
ant, can be seen in a number of

Fun in the sun
As I walk around campus, I hear laugh-
ter coming from packs of students, as well as
some teachers, who feel the need to brag about
how drunk they got, and how they remember
verylirtleofwhatthey did for thatentire week.
While everyone has his or her own way
of enjoying themselves, I fail to see the amuse-
ment in this "drunken stupor" philosophy that
so many college students subscribe to.
Some of you gentle readers are likely
saying things such as: "Blasphemy! Bum the
infidel orperhapseven worse,dependingon
howimaginativeyouare.Ifyou are indeed one
of thosewhopractices the ancientartof "pound
till you hit the ground answer me this.
How much doyou rememberaboutyour
vacation? Was it fun? Perhaps most impor-
tantly; how much did your little trip to Pink
Elephantland set you back?
An interestingsetof questions, tobesure.
More than likely, many of you find yourselves
unable to answer them with conviction. It per-
plexes me, being a nond linker, to see so many
people spending literally hundreds of dollars
to go to some exotic beach full of flesh and
promise only to spend all that time toasted.
"Nond rinker? Ahhh, he's a prude, a
wimp, a feeb. Take out a loan and buy a clue,
pal Nope, sorry. Should any of you gentle
readers think this of me, methinks you should
reconsider. I'm screwed up enough already,
and Idon'tneed the influence of any substance
to be that way or to have fun. Nay, some of the
things I've done while sober would make you
giggle hysterically, blush profusely or justplain
wrinkle up your nose in disgust.
I've seen the effects of alcoholism up
close, and believe me, it ain't pretty. I just want
you to know where I'm coming from, and
ing that all who consume the devil's firewater
will roast in hell. Far be it from me to tell
someone else how to live.
Allow me to share with you what I did
over Spring Break, sans alcohol. Being a poor
college student, my choices were somewhat
limited: 1) Go home to Pennsylvania and play
in the snow, 2) Try to fit into someone's suitcase
or 3) Take a page from the Greenville Bum
Handbook and wander around downtown
asking naivecollegestudents for change.Sinoe
my yoga skills are a little rusty and I simply
can't look wretched and pathetic enough toget
pity- money, I opted for the first choice.
While I was at home, I did the same
things I used to do in high school. I went out
with my Derelict Posse and got stupid with
them. I went out for coffee at Denny's at 1 a.m.
and discussed the secrets of the universe with
my friends. I built a snowman with my little
brother. I saw relatives 1 haven't seen in years.
I shot ptxii until thev kicked us out.
I d id loads of fun stuff while at home ami
remained sober. You know what? I remember
every detail, ever' nuance, and it didn't cost
me a cent.
My point, patient reader, is this: you
don'tneed alcohol tohavea good time. I've had
a good time this year at ECU, purportedly one
touched a drop of firewater or even beer. I'm
living proof that a body doesn't need a blood-
alcohol ratio to enjoy itself. It'stimetowakeup
and smell the coffee without hoping that it
cures your hangover.
Now stop reading, think about it, go get
a pizza, and watch some cartcxins

servative, biased and terminally Caucasian.
Their nominations give credence to this

'Unforgiven' to beat
'The Crying Game
predicts one critic
BEST PICTURE: Two films deserve
worthy consideration in this category:
Unforgiven and The Crying Game. Unforgiven
will win by a landslide because The Crying
Game, though almost as good as Unforgiven, is
not a Hollywood movie and so Hollywood
will not vote for it. Clint Eastwood's western
was simply the best picture of the year. The
story of William Munny, a retired gunfighter,
forced to return to murder in order to help his
stmgglingfamily, isa rxiwerfiilly com pel 1 ing d rama.
TheOscars rarely pick the most artistically inspired
film as their best picture, but this year they can and
BEST ACTOR: Denzel Washington probably
turned in the best performance of the year as an
actor, but he has already won a statuette for Glory.
Stephen Rea turned in an equally impressive per-
formance in The Crying Game, but does not possess
an impressive resume. Al Pacino has never won an
Oscar and has an astonishing resume of work. Even
though the Academy Award issupposed to honor the
best performance of the year it often gives compensa-
tion for past losses. Pacinodeserved a supportingactor
award for his work in Glengarry Glen Ross and did not
get it. The Academy views his role in Scent of a Woman
as flashier and more deserving. Considering Pacino
didn't win anything for any of the three Godfather
films, the Academy will finally compensate and "make
him an offer he can't refuse
BEST ACTRESS: I hate to jump on the critical
bandwagon by complaining about the paucity of qual-
ity female roles this year, but the glaring differences
between the caliber of the actor and actress categories
is astonishing. Because she has won almost even,
major award this year, it seems that Emma
Thompson has the inside track for her per-
formance in Howard's End.
BESTSUPPORTING ACTOR: Since I've
already discussed the oddsof Pacino win-
ning the best actor award, he only other
Hackman has been a Hollywood stalwart,
turning in top-notch performances in many
sub-par films. Once in awhile, he gets to
rum in a remarkable performance in a
superbfilm. If he wins he will have

tor, 21 years between awards. He

band's leader, the very able Tanya
Donelly (an expatriate of the Throwing

Everything I believed that was miss-

has brought to Belly.
Star, the band'sdebut album, retains
all of those things which made the Muses
a good band along with a little dose of
the "Manchester-rave" stuff.
