Adult degree program offered through
Pope Air Force Base
By Jason Williams
ECU has started a college degree
program in Industrial Technology at
Pope Air Force Base in Fayetteville.
The program, open to both military
personnel and civilians, is designed
for adults with full-time jobs.
Through the degree program,
students take accelerated weekend
courses in electronics, technical writ-
ing, materials technology, power sys-
tems and industrial supervision.
"There is a great demand in the
corporate community for people with
this kind of training said Dr. Diana
Henshaw, Director of the ECU Divi-
sion of Continuing Education and
Summer School. The division is spon-
soring the program in association with
the ECU School of Industrial Technol-
Campus and military base offi-
cials recently signed an agreement to
offer the program at Tope. Since its
introduction in January, about 70 stu-
dents have enrolled in the classes
taught at the base's Education Center.
ECU faculty members are teach-
ing the Saturday and Sunday classes.

schools such as community colleges.
"Military personnel often have a
long record of attending colleges. They
often come to us with 20 to 60 hours of
credit from other institutions of higher
learning said Dr. Greg Hastings, also

ECU's department of communica-
tion will usher in the future with innova-
tive plans for educational technology.
AccordingtoT. Harrell Allen,chair
of the communication department, the
department is moving toward educa-
tion in the convergence the computer
and video industries.
"We'll move in the direction of
combining computers and video tech-
nology to create what is now called in
the industry, multimedia Allen said.
"So for our long range goal, the depart-
ment needs to become multimedia in its
Allen praised the school's acquisi-
tion of the Video Toaster and the devel-
opment of the video yearbook. The year-
book isa multimedia product produced
by students in the communication de-
partment. Allen said it should be ready
around the middle of April.
"There's a story in The Neios &
Observer talking about the conversion of
computers and video technology and its
here said Allen. "You have two giant
companies Intel, that makes a very pow-
erful chip and Microsoft, which is the
world's largest software company;
they're getting together to talk about
producing a product that sits on top of
your television and it takes cable signals
much like a computer that shows us
the reality is here
With planned expansion in tech-
nology, the department may be facing a
loss of faculty in the fall, which could
pose a problem in maintaining the cur-
rent class schedule.
Robert Caprio a lecturer in the
communication department, is one in-
structor who does not know if he will be
returning the in fall.
When asked about Caprio return-
ing, Allen said, "It has to do more with
who is here and who isn't and who
decides not to come back. It's more of a
personnel issue than really mone
Caprio said thatthisisa budgetary
matter out of Raleigh. "We're waiting to
see what the general assembly will do.
It's all up in the air now. No one knows
what's going to happen

vidual instructors decision, whether
they'll be here or not said Allen.

Florida spring break gone bad
All college students wanted to do on spring break was
toslather on some oil,drinkacoupleofbeers,catchafew rays
and jump up and down at MTV-sponsored concerts, but
those who ventured to Florida in mid-March got more than
they expected from Mother Nature�snow, sleet, ice, hurri-
cane-force winds, the sort of thing that basically rums a
vacation. "It was the worst time of my whole life said Amy
Krell, a junior from Clarion University in Pennsylvania. Krell
was with of group of nine students who were caught in a
massive winter storm that paralyzed the East Coast wUh
blizzard conditions after they left Daytona Beach, Fla. The
trip home in a crowded van turned into a three-day odyssey
through barely passable roads, bad food and shelter snatched
where they could find it. High winds and rain also ripped

As if you didn't have enough to worry about The
National Anxiety Center has declared April to be Nat.ona
Anxiety Month and announced the winners of its third

Killer meteors, a $40 billion space station and margarine

Hofstra wins Rube Goldberg contest
Engineering students at Hofstra University in
Hempstead, N.Y captured the 6th Annual National Rube
Goldberg Contest, which demonstrates the most ludicrous,
complicated way to screw in a lightbulb. The winning con-
traption revolved around the creepy antics of a tiny Addams
Family, complete with a graveyard, human eyeballs and a
living hand in a black box. Rules say each machines must
require at least 20 steps to complete the task. Hofstra's entry
required 26. The contest was named for the late New York
Daily Mail cartoonist who drew outlandish machines to do
simple tasks. Judges look for ingenuity in screwing in the
light bulb. Points are taken off for human intervention after

Finally, if you're a student at ECU who already
has problems finding a parking space on this cam-
pus, act like Jiminy Cricket and "wish upon a star"
for a solution to the loss of 300 spaces as a result of
the new recreation center. Why not? That's what the
administration seems to be doing.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances (don't
we wish?), construction for the new recreation cen-
ter will begin this summer. Come September, a stu-
dent (and any Greenville residents) will have the
unequaled joy of seeing more cars parked on side
streets, more pedestrian traffic on these same streets
and more tickets from both ECU and Greenville
police than you can shake a stick m
What has our wonderful ad-
ministration done about this
pressing situation? Well, in a nut-
shell, not a whole hell of a lot.
The task force that has worked
diligently on this project has only
agreed to act upon two solutions
at the present moment �
restriping the lot at the bottom of
College Hill to provide 13 more H
spaces and designating the lot jB,
next to Howard House as a stu-
dent parking lot. That provides roughly 50 spaces to
make up for the 300 that will be lost.
Granted, the task force that is working on this
problem has come up with a variety of solutions to
the problem. Some include:
� An expanded shuttle service from Minges
Coliseum to the Brewster Building, running every
10-20 minutes. Students would be able to purchase
a commuter-fringe parking sticker for $40.
� The lot on Reade Street, between Second and
Third, would be gravelled to gain 120 spaces as
� The James House, located at the corner of
Ninth and James Street, will be demolished to bring
� Over 400 spaces in both the lower and upper
lots of Minges could be denoted as commuter spaces.
A bus stop is also being considered in the Brewster
The solutions that the task force have come up
with are very viable and acceptable alternatives to
this problem. However, each day brings the con-
struction of the recreation center a little closer with
no concrete plan to make up for the lost spaces.
The administration needs to act on this prob-
lem now. All of the steps have been taken to address
this important problem; all that it needs is someone
to have the initiative to sign their John Hancock on
the dotted line. Make the decision before construc-
tion starts; putting the cart before the horse in this
scenario will only ensure that all the apples will fall
out and roll down the road.
Then again, all the parked cars on the street
should keep them from going too far.

Cigarette tax necessary for non-smoker health
you (cough-hack) inconsiderate
(insert expletive here) why don't
you and your poison go kill
yourselves somewhere else?"
Didja ever feel like saying
something to that effect to some-
one who just decided to plop
down next to you and toke up a
cigarette, inevitably bombard-
ing you with toxic (that means
poisonous, kids) fumes that you
seem to be incapable of escap-
If you answered "no" to
that question, you're likely a
smoker or a government subsi-
dized tobacco farmer, and
shouldn't bother reading any
further, unless you need some
focus for aggression today.
If, however, you have an-
swered "yes" to this question,
we can talk intelligently about
the pros and cons of smoking
and the impact of said habit on
society as a whole.
Now, right off the bat, it
should be known that I am the
AntiSmoke. I hate smoke and
smoking with a passion, which
consequently led me to this
week's topic. However, I con-
sider myself to be an intelligent
human being, as well as a fair
journalist, so we won't spend
all of our time together ponder-
ing just how asinine I consider
smoking to be, but get on to the
The reason 1 chose to con-
front the issue of smoking this
week should be obvious. With
President Clinton's proposed
"Sin Tax" stirring up both sides
of the issue, a few viewpoints
need to be examined before any-
one can reasonably form an in-
formed and intelligent opinion.
On one hand, I believe that
everyone has the freedom to
choose whatever lifestyle they
want, and if their chosen lifestyle
includes inducing numerous
physical maladies on themselves
for no apparent reason, then so
be it. Loathe though 1 am to say
it, people do have the right to
Although smoker's rights
are a part of the issue, they are
not the most important part of
the puzzle. The real quandary is
what to do about the tobacco
farmers, particularly in the
South, where a large portion of
industry consists of tobacco
Obviously, the near-dou-
bling of the price paid by the
consumer will have an adverse
affect on the marketability of
any product, particularly on
non-essentials like cigarettes.
To further complicate mat-
ters, the government subsidizes
tobacco farmers � that means
they pay some of these people to
grow tobacco. Counterproduc-
tive? Yes. Self defeating? Yes.
On the other hand, non-
smokers have their rights as
well. The reason many of us have
chosen not to smoke is because
of the destructive effects ciga-
rette smoke has on the body.
Read your cigarette pack: low
birth weight, emphysema, heart
disease, lung cancer the list
goes on and on.
That choice, however, is all
too often compromised by some
inconsiderate smoker who feels
the need to share his or her poi-
son by sitting in the same gen-
eral area as non-smokers. The
effect on the second-handers
is far more devastating than it
is on the smokers themselves.
Here's a fun fact: second
hand or sidestrea m smoke con-
tains twice the tar and nico-
tine, five times the carbon mon-
oxide, and 50 times the ammo-
nia than smoke straight from
the cigarette into the smoker's
lungs. Pretty neat, huh?
That means that it's far
worse, statistically speaking,
for innocent bystanders (or
more the point, bybreathers)
to inhale cigarette smoke than
it is for those with the addic-
That's right, I said addic-
tion. As in drug. Lethal to any-
one around it drug.
Well, dammit, it's just
plain inconsiderate to ruin
someone else's day, as well as
their health just for a quick nic
buzz. So tax away, Bill, you've
got my support, and my lungs'

Letters to the Editor
Campus minister clarifies distortion of Bible
To the Editor:
After recently reading a
letter sent to the ed i tor concem-
inghomosexualityand the Bible,
I felt a strong need to write and
misinterpretations and distor-
tions of scripture passages.
Space does not allow me
togo through each scripture and
explain their meaning, but I
would like to comment on the
relationship between King
David and Jonathan in 1 Samuel
18:1-4, 20:41-42 and 2 Samuel
1:25-26. The kind of love these
two men shared was one of
brotherly love. They were com-
mitted to the other's well-being
just as many men in our mili-
tary today would die for their
comrades. In noway were there
anysexualconnotations in their
actions. 1 Sam. 20:41 -42 refers to
them kissingeachother. In many
societies today, it is totally ac-
ceptable for men to kiss each
other in the form of greetings.
Of course, this is not the case in
America so I can see the misin-
terpretations of those passages.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says,
"Do not be deceived; neither
fomicators nor adulterers
nor homosexuals sha 11 inherit
the kingdom of God
In no way do I endorse
mistreatment of gays nor do I
wish any harm come upon them.
Jesus loves every man and de-
si resall mentorepentandcome
into a relationship with Him.
Throughout the Gospels, Jesus
always reach ed ou t and showed
compassion to the sinner, but
never did He accept their sin.
Jesus always said to repent and
turn from their sinful ways and
follow Him. To coin an old
Christian cliche, "Love the sin-
ner, but hate the sin
In no way are compas-
sionate, caring Christians
homophobes and hate-mon-
gers. We simply want homo-
sexuals to know that through
the power of Jesusand with the
help of Christian counseling,
they can be set free from the sin
of homosexuality.Jesussaid that
He came to set the captives free.
Existence of God thought to be unprovable
To the Editor:
How interesting. Topro-
claimdisbelief in something is
to admit that it exists. In the
course of my lifetime, I have
expressed disbelief in Santa
Claus, cold fusion and two-
headed monsters that live un-
der the bed. Thanks to Mr.
Webb and the April 1 edition
of The East Carolinian, however,
I can state with confidence that
all of these things exist, for the
simple reason thai in the past 1
have proclaimed their exist-
ence doubtful. Could this ut-
ter disregard of logic haveany-
thing to do with the decline of
religious influence in modern
society1 1 think it's pretty
likely If you can't handle an
intro level Critical Reasoning
dass, who's going to trust you
with thtir immortal soul?
Does the Bible condemn
homosexuality? Does it allow
it? Here's a deeper issue to
resolve. Why should we care
what the Bible says? People
are using the Bible now to jus-
tify discrimination against
women, blacks, Muslims and
others. We all know about the
people in Waco, Texas.
They've got God cm their side,
too. Where is all thisbrotherly
love the Bible is supposed to
be supporting? Not to worry,
though. Twenty years from
now, when decency and com-
mon sense have prevailed,
Christianity will say that it was
in favor of gay rightsall along.
Here's an idea that isn't
very original, but merits re-
peating. Tut this "Dies God
exist?" question on the back
burner for a while, and get on
with our lives. When all is said
and done, we can't prove He
exists, and we can't prove He
doesn't. It's an intriguing no-
tion, but one that's going to get
us nowhere. Let's see if we
can't find something real.
What about moral guidance?
What about a sense of mean-
ing in your life? Try checking
out some Plato, Immanuel
Kant or Henry David Thoreau.
Any of these will at least make
an attempt to answer some se-
rious questions about life. If
the answers aren't always sat-
isfactory, at least it was a genu-
ine attempt, and this crowd
rarely ducks issues by making
an absurd statement and then

Two-cent beer tax
answer to ECU's
Throughout the 1992-93 term, this
newspaper has run numerous articles con-
cerning the debate over the expected rise
in tuition for both ECU and the state's
Several proposals and sets of statis-
tics have been brought forward in order to
find the best way to garner more money in
the least-painful method (painful to whom
is another kettle of carp).
I personally endorse the idea of a
state lottery to generate the much-needed
increase in funds available for education.
Many states already use such means to
run their superior educational systems
(California, Michigan, Illinois, etc.) while
promising huge payoffs to lucky partici-
Unfortunately, there are obstinate
lobbying groups that believe such mea-
sures will send us all screaming to Hell for
establishing such immoral procedures.
It's gambling, don'tchya know.
So instead, I propose a sin tax. No,
no. Not on cigarettes again . You smokers
have gone through enough economic tor-
ment in order to reduce your lungs to
dreary sacs of carbon But, I think the idea
of "sin taxes" as a quick and near-guaran-
teed source of income via popular vices is
ticipating in "sinful acts" every week (No-
tice the quotes, guys. I'm merely extend-
ing a metaphor.), ECU has the opportu-
nity to tap into a potentially-rich well of
moola with little fuss. Here's how.
A city-wide two-cent beer tax.
Imagine it's Friday night. Let's as-
sume that 4,000 students patronize the
local bars. Say each student consumes an
average of five beers Friday night (a con-
servative estimate for some). That's 20,000
beers, each with a two-cent addend. That's
$400 that night alone without counting
beer sold at convenience stores, grocery
stores and so on.
It also doesn't include kegs or multi-
packs (a 12-pack gets 24 cents, a 24-pack
brings in 48 cents, we'll say kegs get $4.75).
The Pantry on East 10th Street sold 625
cases of beer last week, the majority of
those were 12-packs. Let's say 450 were
12-packs and 175 were 24-packs. That
amounts to $192 a week from that one
The ECU Telephone Directory lists
19 convenience stores. If those stores sold
as much as what The Pantry takes in on a
weekly basis with the beer tax, ECU would
ta ke in145,920 a 40-week year from conve-
nience stores alone. That isn't taking into
account sport weekends, graduations,fra-
ternitvsorority organizations or other pe-
riods of increased alcoholic activity.
If the tax was a nickel a beer, that would
result in $364,800 a year from the sale of beer.
These figures do not consider the sale of kegs
or liquor or a tax on alcoholic paraphernalia.
As much as ECU fancies itself a party
school, such a proposal would not greatly
diminish the sale ofakoholinthe area. There's
monev to be had here, folks.

'Rosemary' to be replaced
Dillon Fence sets April
20 release date for
By Layton Croft
There are four guys who'd prefer you
not consider Dillon Fence a pansy candy
pop Teen Beat weenie band. They're real
cool fellas who live in Chapel Hill and are
Alphin and Chris Goode.
Thekoandcoincidentally shares Dillon
Fence's name, but not their sound. At least
starting April 20, when their new LP, Out-
side In (Mammoth), is released.
Like the patient who's just completed
her first psychotherapy session at the ho-
listic health center, Dillon Fence seems
happier about their existence, more confi-
dent of who they are, yet perhaps more
confused about life than ever.
Outside In, the band's second LP and
fifth release in as many years, marks a
musical departure as distinct as it flanges
Which is to say, they're getting a lot better
yet equally as worrisome.
Humphreys sheds his bouncy blond surf
rap foradarker, more introspective lyrical
exploration. Song titles exemplify this
Dillon twist, which seems evident after a

a house, have a kid, sell him or her

At another time, a group of

to explain how much she learned

The Pirate Ruggers, on Saturday,
faced their toughest opponent of the tour-
nament, Appalachian St. ECU dominated
almost every phaseofthecontest,but was
unable to supply a score until after the
intermission, as the ASU squad led 7-0.
As the game wore on, ECU continued
their pressure and after an successful ASU
kick, finally broke the ASU defense with a
penalty kick by Richard "Opie" Moss.
ECU, now trailing 7-3, started to over-
power their opponents, particularly when
their scrum fell to his stronger ECU coun-
terpart. Jay Keller and John Hogan sup-
plied the muscle for an ECU score. Moss
easily scored his kick, and the Pirate squad
quickly tied the score at 10, where it stood
at the end of regulation.
The referee decided to decide the con-
test with sudden death overtime. The bet-
with a victory
for the rest of

their relentless pressure for over ten min-
utes until Sean Miller scored off of a J.J.
McCain pass to the far corner, clinching
the Pirate victory.
The next day, ECU would face an-
other strong opponent, Guilford College.
At first things looked bad for the Pirates,
as mental errorsallowed theiropponents
to take a 7-0 lead.
However the Pirates pulled them-
selves back into the contest as team cap-
tain Jason Webb took advantage of a
quick penalty play and scored right un-
der the goal posts. Moss' point-after kick
was absolutely perfect and the score was
tied 7-7 at the half.
The second period showcased the
dazzling play of the Pirate wing as Kris
Moore was able to sidestep Guilford at

mitting costly penalties. Two more penal-
ties sentGuilford packing with a 20-7 loss.
