The program is designed to
promote volunteerism among col-

to select agencies where they would

"Health 1000 is our primary
vehicle for obtaining volunteers
Debra Tavasso, Baker's assis-

member who said she uses her class
time to encourage the students to
become involved in this program.
Although the main source of

courses, anyone is eligible to partici-

minimum of five hours of volunteer
work is required.
The ECU student volunteer

of the University of Rochester
Medical School. Preliminary
evidence from tests on adults
has shown that some vaccines
can boost the immune system's
fightagainst HIV and stimulate
new immune responses, accord-
ing to the National Institutes of
Health, which is involved with
Ninety children will be re-
cruited for the study of three
experimental vaccines at 12
sites, including Rochester's
Strong Memorial Hospital. The
other cities are expected to be
New York City; Durham, N.C
Worcester, Mass San Francisco;
Boston; Syracuse, N.Y Los An-
geles; Houston; Denver; New-
Brunswick, N.J and Chicago.
The study will seek chil-
dren between 1 month and 12
years old, withdocumented HIV
infection but no symptoms other
than swollen lymph glands or a
midly swollen liver or spleen.
The children will be given
immunizations every four weeks
for six months, and then be moni-
tored for 24 weeks.
Lambert said he suggested
the study because some parents
of children with HIV asked that
their children get a vaccine in-
stead of the drug AZT, which
attacks the virus but doesn't
boost the immune system-

What's Up, Doc?
Rural medicine garners new
interest from medical residents;
could bolster medical outlook
The good old days.
The days when a person could ride into a town,
hitch their horse up outside of the saloon and down
a shot of whiskey. A time when you knew everyone
ranging from the Pony Express driver to the town
drunk who collapsed every night between the coun-
try store and the doctor's office.
That brings up the one person that every other
person in town was sure to know or meet at one time
or another � the doctor.
Having to deal with quacks selling miracle rem-
edies, terrible hygiene and what society would now
consider prehistoric medical practices, doctors in the
olden days were faced with many a problem and
crisis. However, one thing that existed in those times
seems to have disappeared in this age of specializa-
tion and high-finance medicine.
That fading-fast aspect is the fact that you knew
your doctor and knew that he or she would come at
a moment's notice. This rapidly fading doctor is more
commonly known as the rural doctor, or just plain
North Carolina has become only the fifth state in
this country to offer rural
residency programs to up
and coming doctors. The pro-
gram offers residents a one-year
intensive training period at the Uni-
versity Medical Center of Eastern
Carolina-Pitt County, then interns
them at either the Roanoke-Chowan
Hospital in Ahoskie or Martin Gen-
eral Hospital in Williamston for two
Dr. Colin Jones, the site coordinator at Ahoskie,

'accustomed to rural education, as well a& rural
The biggest change that residents can expect in
this rural medicine program is the inability to defer to
a specialist in the event of a condition the doctor
cannot handle him or herself. The program teaches
the residents that they can handle almost any situa-
tion they might be faced with.
Rural medicine could prove to be a vital step in
the improvement of medical care in the United States.
By instructing medical residents in the mindset of
autonomy, the future of medicine can be replaced
with an emotion of hope rather than fear of retalia-
For too long, doctors have been afraid of practic-
ing medicine for fear of malpractice suits. Only re-
cently has the country pushed for laws to protect
doctors who render assistance to someone in need.
These "Good Samaritan" laws served as the first step
in a long walk that still needs to be undertaken.
Rural medicine takes the next step in this walk
and allows fledgling doctors to gain an equilibrium
and sense of being that is seldom found in the rat-race
of metropolitan hospitals. By having an immediate
and visible effect on the patients they treat, the doc-
tors acquire a sense of contribution that grows with
In this day and age, where health care ranks as
one of the top concerns on the public's minds, rural
medicine could serve as an acceptable remedy where
all other attempts have just served as placebos. Al-
lowing doctors a "back-to-basics" approach, rural
medicine could also be a first step in another long
walk � the one towards human security.

Clinton aids Russia in bid for democracy
Russia is struggling; either
toward freedom or tyranny, no one
is quite sure. Russian president
Boris Yeltsin is at the helm of this
political jumble. Is it really all that
surprising that our own govern-
ment is skipping right alongside?
Yeltsin is faced with the chal-
lenge of demonstrating that de-
mocracy can be strong enough to
survive. He declares presidential
rule and calls for a referendum to
decide the issue between himself
and the old order. To carry this
agenda through, he needs political
security and aid from foreign gov-
ernments. Here is where Clinton
President Clinton said Thurs-
day that America should heip "not
out of charity" but as a crucial in-
vestment in peace and prosperity.
He plans to fund the first phase of
his aid plan by using about $400
million the Bush administration
obtained but never spent. What is
included in this aid package, you
� A new programs to pro-
vide housing for Russian army of-
ficers withdrawn from the Baltic
states and Belarus.
� An "enterprise fund" of
$300 million over the next three
years to provide "sled loans" to
small businesses and working capi-
tal to private banks.
� Several small programs
aimed at reviving the Russian oil
and gas industry. The programs
include sending U.S. technicians to
advise Russians on extraction tech-
niques, starting an energy conver-
sation advisory program and of-
fering loans to finance U.S. oil field
� More humanitarian aid in-
cluding infant formula, pharma-
ceutical and medical equipment.
Clinton also plans on press-
ing Yeltsin to control the central
bank, which has been printing
rubles with abandon. This has fu-
eled inflation that now runs nearly
one percent a day.
I think the world knows
what's at stake, nereis a rallying
cry of support for Yeltsin heard
round the globe, a cry led byClinton
himself. Clinton understands that
the last thing the world needs as it
emerges from the 20th century is a
Russia returned to its old ways.
Imagine the results just in the
Balkans and the Middle East alone
if Russia emerged again asa night-
marish communist super-power.
Clinton recognizes thisneed
of Yeltsin's to revive the spiiit of
democracy in the eyes of the Rus-
sian people. He admonished
Americans that we have a large
stake in the success of Russian
reform. Clinton also warned that
"if Russia were to revert to impe-
rialism or plunge into chaos, we
would need to reassess all our
plans for defense savings" � po-
tentially costing billionsof dollars
in new spending.
Now certainly those are
payerscan understand. Even more
important than our monetary in-
terests, we must recognize
Russia's struggle in its infant
stages of democracy and support
its first fumbling steps.

Letters to the Editor
Cartoon offends pro-life supporter with message
To the Editor:
As a pro-life student, I
was highly offended by the
editorial cartoon on March
25. It disturbs me that one of
the few groups it is still po-
litically correct to stereotype
is the pro-life movement.
Being involved in sev-
eral pro-lifegroupsand hav-
ing discussed the killing of
Dr. Gunn extensively, I have
found no one who feels that
this act was justified. We are
adamantly opposed to sense-
less murders, that's what
makes us pro-life. All of us
findGriffinjustasbad as the
people who perform the
more than 4,400 abortions
I have been appalled by
the so-called representatives
of the pro-life movement the
media has interviewed about
the situation. Where did they
find these people, under a
rock? The vast majority of us
find these people an embar-
rassment to our cause.
Furthermore, I find it
very ironic that this hap-
pened at the same time the
bill that would make it a fed-
eral crime to exercise one's
freedom to protest by stand-
ing in front of an abortion
mill is before Congress. Let
me ask, who has more to gain
by the killing of Dr. Gunn?
Certainly not the pro-life
Columnist urged to research articles in future
To the Editor:
This letter is in response
to the article by Jason
Tremblay concerning the is-
sue of homosexuals in the
military. We feel that we need
to set matter straight concern-
ing his own personal opinion
as well as those of a factual
First of all, we must say
we do not believe homosexu-
als should be excluded from
society, but yes, at this time
homosexuals should be ex-
cluded from military service.
The real question is whether
we should cater to the wishes
of the minority while at the
same time endangering the
national security of the ma-
jority, lb it really worth it?
Tremblay wagered that
most people reading his ar-
ticle have not or never will be
in military service. While ci-
viliansenjoy basic rights guar-
anteed to them by the Consti-
tution, those who serve in the
military give up certain rights,
one of which is a personal
right to privacy. It is immedi-
ately apparent from reading
what you have to say that you
have never served in the mili-
tary in any capacity, so what
makes you an authority on
the subject? Anyone with ex-
perience in the armed services
understands why a publicly-
would undermine morale,
discipline, unit cohesiveness,
espirit de corps and cause
unnecessary tension in any
unit. We would also like to
say that your notion that
"women are fully accepted in
the military" is not at all true.
After all, how would you
know? How can you make
such a statement when every-
one knows that women are
still not allowed to perform in
combat arms occupations?
Please, Tremblav, do your
homework next time!
Finally, we take offense
to your statement of "just how
much strength or machismo
does it take to fight in a war
todav?" Clearly, you are way
off target here. For example,
infantry combat has changed
very little in the past 200years.
If anything, infantry combat
has become more deadly in
light of the presence of weap-
ons of mass destruction. Sol-
diers must keep themselves
in a high state of physical fit-
ness at all times to ensure that
they can withstand the tre-
mendous rigors of the battle-
field. Again, another concept
with which you would be
unfamiliar. Technology does
not at all ease the burden of
carrying a 100-lb. rucksack,
or engaging in a 30-mile forced
road march in full combat
gear, or pulling guard duty
after being up several days
without rest in sub-zero tem-
peratures, or having to run
five miles or more to reach an
objective, or we think you
get the point.
In closing we would 1 ike
to say that serving in the mili-
tary is not like working for a
large corporation. Its goals
and objectives should not be
compromised by what some
feel is politically correct. We
vehemently disagree with
vour views concerning the
military and invite you to en-
dure six to 12 weeks of mili-
tary boot camp.

Not only did Sokolowski present a lecture

disregarded ashubris to suggest that the presen-
tation of the exhibit was regarded equally as
high. It is a tremendous show.
While theGray Gallery hasconsistently pre-
sented fine art for ECU and the surrounding
community to appreciate, a student show may
sound to the average student as a sacrifice of
standard for the purpose of self-promotion.
The Jenkins Building houses North
Carolina's largest studio art program and the
only state program accredited by the National
Association of Schools of Art and Design
(NASAD). With suchcredentials, the high grade
and strength of the undergraduateexhibitshould
come as no surprise.
The works are grouped according tol 1 cat-
egories representing the areas of concentration
available to students. Awards were given for
merit (denoted by purple ribbons) and excel-

Suicide is one of those troubling topics
and traumatic events that makes all of us

depression and suicide in their peers and to
take appropriate action. Suicide, and suicid-
ally self-destructive behaviors (e.g. fatalities
due to reckless driving, abuse erf alcohol and
drugs, unprotected sex or self-starvation) are
major causes of death in the college-aged
populatton-Forastudentin acute psychologi-

low probability too devastating to disregard.
Those who have made previous attempts are
at especially high risk because they may try
again with greater lethality. Individ uals using
drugs or alcohol are more likely to act impul-
sively, sometimes without even consciously
planning to hurt themselves.
Here are some indications to watch for. 1)
A directly stated intention to kill one's self or
indirect remarks such as, "I have nothing to
live for Nobody would miss me if I died" or
"My friends and family would be better off
.vithout me 2) Inexplicable changes in be-
haviororrxraTtality,aswhen someone famil-
iar to you acts very uncharacteristica lly (e.g. a

longed deep depression, recognizable by the
of energy, motivation,and pleasure;disturbed
sleepingand eating; feelingsof guiltand wonh-
drawal and isolation;and impaired daily func-
tioning (e.g. not going to class, completing
assignments). Often the most dangerous time
is when the depression begins to lift, and the
individual has the power to act decisively.

If someone confides in you or shows indica-

encourage the person to talk to you abou t it. Be
a good listener; try to understand and sympa-

openly airing these might encourage suicide.
On the contrary, turning off their expression
can be isolating and lead to increased hope-
lessness. Yourwillingnesstodiscuss troubling
ideas and emotions acknowledges that they
exist, not that it is acceptable to act on them.
Advice such as, "You should appreciate how
lucky you are" or "Thinkhow much better off
you are than other people will only produce
more guilt and alienation. Persuade the indi-
vidual to get help, but don't try to talk him or
her out of how he or she feels Be supportive,
but don't give false reassurances that every-
thing will be OK. To assess the degree of risk,

Jellyfish's 'Spilt Milk' offers
richly written music, lyrics
By Blair Skinner
Although I promised to write a review
of Spit Milk, the latest album by Jellyfish, I
put it off for a week or so.
At the time I didn't know how I felt
about the album. I listened to it once, and
slid it into a CD rack with other disappoint-
ments. Overproduced, out there, I thought
Rippingoff the Beatles, the Beach Boys and
Queen, I thought Ick, wasted money, I
To soothe my injured wallet I played
the disc once more. And once more, and
again. Pardon the pun, but I'm not crying
over Spit Milk anymore. An impulse buy,
it'stumed out tobe the best$16and change

collection of richly produced songs with

and Roger Manning have surpassed the
tongue-in-cheek fun of their 1990 debut
Since BfibKttOTJellyfishdropped two
members: guitaristJasonFalknerand Roger's
drums and guitars, and Roger Manning,
who plays keyboards, remain with Tim
Smith now on bass. Smith, Sturmer and
Roger Manning worked their tails off this
time�maybe too much.
Almost every song on Spit Milk could
be called overproduced. Instruments are
layered upon each other: Calliopes,
balalaikas, banjos, harpsichords, brass and
strings sections battle for a listener's atten-
tion, witheachotherand thelyrics. Manning
and Stunner's singing has been heavily in-

spring, to help shore up weak-
nesses in the receiving corps.
Edwards will have to fill a
position at the wide-out slot
and adapt to the intricacies of
a Pirate offense adapted to fit
a two-back set.
Rumor has it that Logan
was at first displeased with
Edwards' participation in
baseball, but Edwards said
that it was just Logan's con-
cern blown out of proportion.
"He only wanted me to
play baseball if I got (playing

year was a great experience for
him, but admits that he was

to play that much it was still

ers get bounced around in the
pros, but it is definitely my

leagues Edwards said.
Edwards said that his
athleticism and speed may pro-
vide him with an advantage
when the professional scouts
look his way in a couple years,
but right now he is concentrat-
ing on "giving 100 percent" in
both sports and hopes he can
gain success in each.
"It would be a big fantasy

at both sports, avid fans of ECU
athletics can expect to see much
more of him in the future.

his matchup against Eric Montross Mon-
day in the NCAA championship game.
No, it'll be a lot rougher, more like the
Terminator and the Hulk.
Pity anyone who gets sandwiched
between North Carolina's Montross, 7feet,
270 pounds, and Michigan's Webber, 6-9,
245, when they collide on rebounds.
As agile as they are, Montross and
Webberwon'tbedancingaballet under the

forward and reverse, in a game that is 1 ikely
to be a bruising affair.

nor Riley has the brawn that Webber has to
cope with the monstrous Montross, whose
arms seem chiseled from granite.
Webber had 27points,eightrebounds
and five blocked shots, including three
rejections against Montross, when Michi-
gan beat North Carolina 79-78 in Hawaii in
December. Montross finished with 14 points
and 10 rebounds.
"Blocking shots is going to happen
Montross said with a shrug. "He got me. I got

There were other crucial matters, such as
North Carolina's press. Michigan broke

Carolina did it differently with bigger players

King, an excellent defender, had a 2-inch

25-point show against Kansas.
Ray Jackson, perhaps Michigan's best
defender, was switched between Lynch, Wil-
liams and Brian Reese as they got hot.
Each team was loaded with talent and
experience among the starters and on the

1992 Winston Cup rookie of the
year trying to fit behind big wheel
BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) � Jimmy
Hensley, the 1992 Winston Cup rookie
of the year, is the choice to take over the
driving duties for the late Alan Kulwicki,
according to a published report.
"Alan told me a year ago that if
something happened to put Jimmy
Hensley in the car Felix Sabates told
the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch for
a story the newspaper published today.
Hensley, a resident of Ridgeway,
Va hasbeen looking for a Winston Cup
ride since his 1992 team owner, Cale
Yarborough, replaced him with former
Daytona 500 winner Dernke Cope.
Sabates, whoowns the WinstonCup
cars driven by Kyle Petty and Kenny
Wallace, has been a close friend of
Kulwicki's for years. At the request of
Kulwicki's father, Gerald, Sabates has
been helping to handle Alan Kulwicki's
affairs since the reigning Winston Cup
champion was killed in a plane crash
Sabates said he had not discussed
the matter of the racing team's future
with Kulwicki and would not do so until
after the funeral, which is scheduled for;
Wednesday in Greenfield, Wis.
"Thursday morning, I'll ask Mr.
Kulwicki what he wants to do, then go
on Sabates said.
Alan Kulwicki left his racing team
to his father in a recently drawn will
Sabates said. But Gerald Kulwicki, he
added, "is not in a position financially
to take over this team. He has to have
time to think it through.
"Alantook good care of his finances.
This team is in better shape than 90
percent of them. Going through his af-
fairs, I've seen how well he looked after
Sabates said helping out with
Kulwicki's affairs has not been difficult,
even though he has two other teams to

them because this is for Alan he said.
