Campus police hope to curb spring rape rate
By Warren Sumner
With the emergence of the spring
season, police officials in the Green-
ville area are bracing for the increased
number of sexual assaults that typi-
cally are reported at the onset of warm
weather. With reports of an alleged
rape taking place on campus as re-
cently as this weekend, campus and
Greenville officials are stressing edu-
cation and awareness as preventative
measures against such crimes.
This weekend, the ECU Public
Safety office received a report of a rape
that allegedly occurred around 2 a.m.
Saturday morning behind the Spilman
Building. The victim was allegedly as-
saulted on Fifth St dragged through
the hedges that separate campus from
the street, and raped on campus
By Joe Horst
Classrooms and textbooks
may be one way to get an edu-
cation, but ECU students are
finding that volunteer work can
also prove to be rewarding.
Currently, students in
Health 1000 classes have the op-
tion of volunteering their time
to 42 agencies located in the Pitt
County area. Started in 1989,
the student volunteer program
distributes opportunity sheets
to students listing the organiza-
tions and contact people need-
ing volunteers. Organizations
range from PICASO, the non-
profit AIDS support group, to
the Little Willie Center, which
deals with latcn-key children.
Bobbie Beck, volunteer of-
fice manager of PICASO, said
that student volunteers have
been crucial to the success and
working of the organization.
"The students save my
sanity Beck said. "The ones I
have are extremely dedicated,
highly effective and highly pro-
fessional. They have literally
kept this office open when it
might not be. I can't speak
highly enough of the ECU stu-
dent and their work
The student volunteers
work at a variety of tasks at
PICASO, ranging from
fundraisers, designing training
manuals, answering questions
on HIVAIDS and filling out
The volunteer program
does not require students to par-
ticipate; rather, it offers partici-
pants extra-credit incentives,
such as an additional 10 points,
in the class the student is cur-
rently attending. Project direc-
tor Judy Baker said that this for-
mat is designed so as not to take
away from the students who
"Our program is designed
to stimulate volunteerism
among college students Baker
said. "It's one way to get them
involved in the community
Dr. Dee Dee Glascoff, as-
sociate professor in health edu-
cation, echoed Baker's senti-
ments, saying that a student's
first volunteer experience may
foster a second or third time.
"Students find out how re-
warding volunteering is, and

grounds. According to ECU Public
Safety's Lt. Keith Knox, the incident is
still under investigation.
A 15-year veteran of crime pre-
vention, Knox said that his office re-
ceives more reports of rape during
spring months than at any other time
of the year. Knox said he had no con-
crete proof on why this phenomenon
occursduring this time, but speculates
that it is because people tend to be
more relaxed with their awareness
during the spring than at other times
of the year.
"People just don't take precau-
tions now like they do at other times of
the year Knox said. "They may have
a tendency to leave doors and win-
dows open or unlocked for ventila-
tion. That leaves them less protected
against sexual assault
Knox also believes that people
are uneducated as to exactly who can
be assaulted by rapists.
"Everyone is a potential victim,
no matter what age, no matter what
social status, no matter what gender.
When you're talking about rape it is a
very complex problem, only by educa-
tion and by changing attitudes can
rapes be prevented
Supporting Knox in this senti-
ment is Mary Smith, the director of the
REAL Crisis Center. Smith's office of-
fers counseling and assistance to vic-
tims of rape on a regular basis.
Smith said her office has received
nine new rape clients so far this month
and given the current trend (since Janu-
ary there have been 37 new victims of
rapes reported to the center), said there
will undoubtedly be more cases as the
warmer weather continues.
"Many people have speculated
on the increased occurrences of rape
during the spring Smith said. "Some
say it is because oi depression, some
attribute it to the fact that more people
are out moving around, some say it is
because of hormonal changes people
go through during the spring. People
are simply less guarded during the
spring and are therefore more
succeptible to violent crimes
Smith also said that numbers of
rapes that go unreported are astro-
nomical as compared to those few rapes
that aie actually prosecuted in court.
Smith said that out of 142 rape clients
last year, only 33 reported the inci-
dents to authorities.
Through his experiences as a po-
lice officer, Lt. Knox urges everyone to
commit themselves towards being edu-

ECU Public Safety. The incidents, all
off-campus, werereported totheGreen-
ville police department within a four-
day period of one another and were all
reported from apartmentand housing
complexes popular to students.
Knox said mat it is rare that his
office sees false reports filed, particu-
larly in this ratio. Knox said, "Gener-
individualswho would do something
of that nature. A lot of times they're

Waco standoff ends in tragedy
WACO, Texas (AP) � Fire
engulfed a religious cult com-
pound today after FBI agents in
an armored vehicle smashed the
buildings and pumped tear gas
into them in an attempt to end a
51-day standoff. The fate of
Branch Davidian leader David
Koresh and the 95 people inside
the compound � believed to in-
clude 25 children � wasn't im-
mediately known. One person
could be seen jumping off a roof;
one emerged with his hands up.
Huge clouds of smoke rose
into the air from the complex of
interlocking buildings. About 20
minutes after the fire began, a
huge fireball erupted from the
compound. A watchtower that
had become familiar in televi-
sion shots of the siege collapsed.
Waco fire trucks were called
in, but there was no immediate
sign of efforts to put the blaze
The fire began shortly after
noon, moments after an armored
vehicle rammed one of the build-
ings as part of a six-hour assault.
At dawn, FBI agents in an ar-
mored vehicle had begun ripping
holes in the walls of the com-
pound. Agents were met by
heavy gunfire but no injuries

A week-long strike by faculty membersat the University
of Cincinnati is over, and school officials said all scheduled
classes are now being held. The 1,916 full-time faculty mem-

Professors went on strike March 29 over several issues, in-
cluding pay and concerns about university governance and
working conditions. A tentative three-year contract was
reached April 2, and classes resumed April 5. At least 50
percent of the classes were held during the strike, and a
university spokesman said the 10-week quarter will be fin-

Rape problem addressed
Education essential to prevent
rapes; false rapes detract
from severity of situation
Recently, th Greenville police department
logged in three separate incidents of rape in a four-
day period. All three incidents, which occurred off-
campus, have been proven to be filed under false
Typically, rape reports rise in the spring sea-
son. Reasons for this increase have ranged from
hormonal changes in people to depression to more
people being outside enjoying the weather. As a
whole, people are less guarded and therefore more
susceptible to this violent crime.
Though often misunderstood, rape is a crime
of anger and violence, rather than one of sex. Rap-
ists commit this crime to exert a type of control over
their victims. Rapists also commonly count on vic-
tims not reporting the crime, thereby allowing the
rapist to continue unknown and unstopped.
Current improvements in medical technology
exist that allow police and doctors the ability to
trace the offender with a greater degree of accuracy
and also help make convictions stick. However,
effect fades away to
nothing if the rape is
Accusing a per- m j �?�
son of rape falsely � Jy 1
detracts greatly from
the few actual rapes
that are reported.
Sometimes used as an
excuse to get back at
a boyfriend or girl-
friend, these false accusations are what lead some
people to believe that a real rape has not occurred.
Rape is too great and important an issue to be
trivialized on the whim of a person's momentary
Education is probably the most important fac-
tor that will deter a potential rape from happening.
Blind trust in your fellow man cannot be followed
here; sad to say, but a person has to be a little
paranoid in today's society in order not to be vic-
timized. A few simple precautions can mean the
difference between safety and harm.
� Keep your doors locked and your windows
at a low level. With the weather warming up, people
are prone to open their windows wide to let in the
fresh air. This action can allow a person to enter
your house without your knowledge.
� Be aware of your surroundings and if there
are any people around you. Walk with your head
forward, not constantly looking down at the ground
or up in the air. This precaution will allow you time
to react if someone approaches you.
� If walking at night, try to stay in lighted
areas as much as possible. Also, try not to walk
alone if at possible; if you must, keep an extra-alert
eye out for strangers.
These guidelines may seem old and overused
to some, but they may be life-savers to others. Rape
is not a crime that will just go away if it is ignored;
more than likely, it will happen at a greater rate
rather than decline. Only when people realize the
severity of the problem will any progress be made.
Realize that there is a problem. If you are
raped, report it. If you know of a rape, report it. The
three monkeys � see no evil, hear no evil, speak no
evil � is not a graphic that applies here. This matter
is too serious to be trivialized. Don't perpetuate the
problem that already exists.

Women's bicycle no threat to male's identity
It's easy to tell when spring
has sprung here at ECU. No, it's
not the sweet smell of fresh-cut
grass nor the vivid blossoms of
the cherry trees. It's the sight of
numerous scantily-clad female
students lying about in any avail-
able patch of sunshine.
Ah, the joys of spring!
Wa tching the goings-on out-
side my apartment the past few
weeks,itoccurred to me how much
we homosapietis (which, ironically,
means "wise man") are connected
to the cycles of the seasons, re-
gardless of how "civilized" we
become. Of course, when I speak
of cycles, I mean bicycles. Which
is a corny but effective segue into
my next topic.
Three weeks ago I didn't
have a bicycle. I had one once � a
nice 10-speed model � but in a
moment of poor judgement I let
my erstwhile roommate borrow
it, whereupon he proceeded tolose
the thing straightaway.
That's right, he lost a full-
grown bicycle. Just couldn't re-
member where he left it. So there's
probably a rusted-out frame of a
bike chained to a "No Parking"
sign somewhere on campus, i nat's
no matter, because I have a bicycle
Three weeks ago, I com-
plained to my father that my four-
block walk to campus everyday
was becoming quite stressful.
"Only four blocks?" heasked quite
incredulously, like fourblocks was
some cake-walk or something.
Then he said, "Well, why don't
you just call a cab?" I think he was
Anyway, he said that mom
had a bicycle she hadn't ridden in
a while and asked me if I wanted
to use it. "Sure 1 said, because I
hadn't had much sleep in the past
We went out to the garage
where my family keepsitsbicycles,
l3v.i;i!iOv.vr: nare tires and just
about everything else but auto-
mobiles. Dad showed me mom's
It was a pretty blue color.
The color wasnice. Oh, and itwas
painted a pretty shade of blue,
(did I cover that already?). Well,
to be as inexpensive as it was
(FREE!), the bike had some great
features, like two genuine rubber
tires and a beautiful, matching set
But it was a woman's bike.
Now for those of you males
out there who wonder why men's
bikes have the bar and women's
bikes don't, the answer is obvious:
the bicycle was invented by Gloria
Steinem. Seriously, though, it'sgot
something to do with back in the
old days when women used to
wear dresses. The bar was re-
moved to keep the dresses from
bunching up on it. I think.
1 brought the bicycle home
and took it out of the back of my
car. I was a little nervous concern-
ing the reaction I would get from
my neighbors, but as soon as
they saw me on the bike, they
began to yell such reassuring
phrases as, "Wooo-weee, look
at that little sissy-boy ride and
"Peddle that thang, sweetheart,
and be careful you don "t break a
Of course, being com-
pletely secure in my manhood, 1
took my friends' good-natured
ribbing like a real sport, al-
though I do think the rock-
throwing incident was a bit
much. The fact that I haven't
ridden my bicycle since that day
has absolutely nothing to do
with it being a women's bike.
It's just that I'm waiting for the
weather to warm up. Like
around 100 degrees or so.
On second thought, if you
happen to see a rusted-out, ten-
speed bicycle chained to a "No
Parking" sign, give me a call. I'd
surely appreciate it.

Clinton uses 'false association' with history
To the Editor:
There is a deceptive prac-
tice in the marketing industry
known as "false association"
whereby manufacturers of
lesser products cloak their
wares in the guise of successful
competitors, often adopting
their color schemes or type
styles. The premise being that
if the illicit item appears to be
the same as the genuine article,
the buyer will probably associ-
ate it with the real McCoy and
make a hasty purchase. Most
patent attorneys make an ex-
tremely good living by keep-
ing these products off the
shelves since copies often in-
volve the theft of intellectual
property and therefore violate
In his book Class (1981),
Paul Fussell refers to the com-
mon practice among the lowly
society of donning tee shirts or
caps emblazoned with impor-
tant trademarks like
"Budweiser " This action al-
lows the wearer to achieve a
small degree of fame through
mere association with those
who are legitimately success-
Woody Allen, in his film
Zelig, made light of a similar
premise when he fashioned a
pathetic character who found
popularity by affecting the
mannerisms of those around
him. By carefully observing the
language, lifestyles and quirks
of his associates, he was able to
pass himself off as intelligent
and educated There is, as you
probably guessed, a limit to the
longevity of a charade like this
Most recently, Bill Clinton
has latched onto the idea that
he, too, can be a man of sub-
stance by aligning himself with
the right people. The funny part
is that most of the associations
he concocts for himself are to
the deceased. I suppose this is
lessabout being funny than it is
crafty since he knows that no
corpse, no matter how great in
life, is able to reject such an
FDR, Jack Kennedy, Mar-
tin Luther King, and, just this
week, Thomas Jefferson, have
been exhumed and paraded
about as the unwitting men-
tors of a slick hypocrite and his
systematicbilkingof the Ameri-
can people. Even Hillary has
seen the merit in this tactic, and
has wasted no time in procur-
ing postmortem advice from
Eleanor Roosevelt's ghost.
When scholars in the next
century write about Clinton,
I'm certain that all equations
which compare him to those
who forged history will be cu-
riously missing. Or, perhaps
his life will be more aptly com-
pared to the rogues, liars and
infidels who came before him
and to whom he secretly as-

plan could boost
The Japanese government Wednes-
day unveiled a record package of spend-
ing and tax breaks aimed at reviving its
slumping economy and reducing its mas-
sive trade surplus. Top U.S. officials indi-
cated that they think Japan must do con-
siderably more to contribute to global eco-
Japanese officials asserted that the
package, which they valued at about $115
billion, would be enough to lift the
economy out of its worst recession in two
decades. A recovery, in turn, should boost
Japanese purchases of foreign goods and
thus help shrink the trade imbalance.
Of course, there is a great deal of
dispute over how much of the package
will provide a real boost to the economy
and how much is artificial. Much of the
spending in the Japanese plan is in the
form of public works, not just for tradi-
tional roads and harbors, but also for high-
tech projects such as data and communi-
The Clinton administration has been
prodding Japan to increase demand in
order to boost imports and give the global
economy a jump start. The economic slow-
down in Japan has curbed demand there
for U.S. exports, dampening efforts to
boost the U.S. economy.
However, top administration offi-
cials have strongly indicated that they are
not impressed by the Japanese
govr-nment's effort. Secretary Lloyd
Bentsen said Japan is in a particularly
good position to contribute to the growth
of the world economy because, unlike
other major industrialized cities, Tokyo
enjoys large trade and budget surpluses.
Secretary of State Warren Christo-
pher said that while the package is "a
useful first step the world economy
needs several years of strong Japanese
growth, not just a quick lift
Both Washington and Tokyo agree
that stimulating the Japanese economy is
one of the important ways Tokyo can re-
duce its trade surplus, which was reported
at a record $111.34 billion for the fiscal
year ending March 31. However, the ques-
tion is whether the package announced
will do the trick. It should spur an in-
crease in demand that would raise Japa-
nese purchases of foreign goods by about
$8 billion this year.
Add to this the fact that Japan's aid
to Russia will total about $1.8 billion,
slightly higher than the $1.6 billion re-
ported last week, and Japan is in quite an
uncomfortable, world-wide spotlight.
The Russian aid will consist mainly
of trade credits and insurance, especially
for the gas and oil industry, but it will also
include some modest grants to improve
safety and nuclear facilities, help small
businesses and provide food and medi-
This comes as a surprise considering
the dispute over the four islands off the

plans is a welcome sign for the future of

Barefoot f 1993
By Kris Hoffler
Warmer weather, pollen on your car,
greener grass, and the arrival of the birds
and tfie bees can only mean on thing: it's
spring in the Emerald Gty.
After a long and rainy winter it is a
welcome experience. As a college student
you can expect exams to follow the wanner
weather and summer to follow the exams.
We here at ECU also have the spring tradi-
tion of Barefoot on the Mall, a good way to
lower your spring fever while kicking back
with some good music and good friends.
This year it looks like we have a pretty
decent entertainment lineup, so get out and
enjoy it (after all, you have already paid for
Barefoot'93 is thisThursday, starting at
noon and lasting until around 530p.m. The
lineup of bandsis sure to have something to
please most anyone, along with a good MC,
some free stuff givenawayand yournormal
col lection of mindless, but fun, college ga mes.
Although alcohol is not encouraged by ECU
security, I swear I smelled a little beer last
year and it was not encouraged then either.
The day will begin at 12 noon with a
giveaway and will be followed by the MC
for the day, Brad Lowery. You may have
seen Brad before on HBO's "Def Comedy
Jam "Inside the NFL" or even on the
" ApolloComedy Hour Hehasopened for
such acts as Dennis Miller and Sinbad. We
may have a good comedian on our hands
here folks and only a nihilist would knock
Next up is Roily Gray and Sunfire at
12:31, whom you mayhaveseen downtown
before. R.G. and Sunfire play even-thing
from reggae to calypso to soca (calypso and
American funk). The majority of the band
members hail from Trinidad but have re-
sided in the United States for over 10 years
now. Their sound is certainly fun and
Sunfire is to be followed by more give-
aways and Brad Lowery's comic relief be-
tween set changes. Then at 2 p.m. Col. Bruce
Hampton (ret.) & The Aquarium Rescue
Unit will take the stage. The good Colonel
delivers a combination of blues, jazz, rock,
country, bluegrass and a little of his own
stylings to tease the ear. He has stated the
band's purpose to be trying to capture the
joy and spirit of Southern root music � a
fine objective by anyone's standards. They
will be followed by even more giveaways
and the verbal trickery of Brad Lowery.
Finally we come to what is known as
the headliner. Last year was The Ocean
Blue, a look at the future of music; this year
we will have a glimpse at an era most of us
(of college age that is) probably missed. At4
p.m. 1964 will take the stage and the British
will invade once again. They have been
hailed as the most authentic and endearing
' tribute to the Beatles, bar none. Their sound
and appearance is so close to the real thing
it is uncanny, a flashback if you will. They
cover Beatles' material from 1964 to 1966
with incredible detail, down to John
Lennon's straddling stance and gum chew-
ing during songs.
Although they won't play anything
from Sgt. Pqrpers's, Abbey Road, or the White
Album you can expect such songs as: "Can't
Buy Me Love "Help "Drive My Car
'Twist and Shout" and "Yesterday De-
spite not being able to hear the later stuff,
this sounds promising.
There will also be the Velcro Fly Wall,
Human Bowling, and Temporary Tattoos
for those who get bored with the bands.
Who knows what else will go on? Those of
you that were here for last year's Barefoot
may remember thehugevatof mud created
by a dunk tank leaking into a volleyball
court. This vat of mud was probably the
most fun of anything that day. People, mud
and clothes were flying about.
In my opinion that was one of the best
experiences I have had since I've been at ole
ECU, reclai ming childhood probably. Secu-
rity will no doubt take extra measures to see
that it won't happen again.
I would pay money to see that again.

Col. Bruce Hampton & ARU will headline this year's Barefoot. They'll be joined by
Roily Cray & Sunfire and 1964, an early Beatles cover band.

Mama Cass sang a really swell version
of "Dream a Little Dream of Me It makes
mecry. Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey" makes
me cry too, but hey � mat's because I'm a
sensitive man, damnit! But, I don't want to
talk about sensitivity, I mean, God bless
Mama Cass and all that, but haven't we
heard enough about sensitivity? I'm a sen-
sitive man and that's that!
I kick ass when I have to, though.
Anyway, have you heard about these
programs where needlesaredistributed to
drugaddicts? Nonow, get this: need lesare
distributed to drug addicts! We live in a
country thatwon'tlegalize pot, butwe give
needles to drug addicts so that, when they
do their drugs and break the law, they
won't get AIDS or hepatitis. Silly.
Let's keep the users alive. That way,
when they kill a young newlywed couple,
full of hopes and dreams for an ever-so-
blissful future, in order to get some cash �
and maybe a ring to pawn � so they can
buy more drugs, we can prosecute them
and shove them in one of our vacant jail
Well, I think we all know Clinton isn't
going to legalize pot. But could you imag-
ine? We could cruise into a bar and order a
joint! And what about the other organics?

pump billions of bucks into shit like tele-
scopes that don't work, planes that don't
fly, and studies about dumb things like
how much weight a rabbit can bear on its
Don't forget these little ridiculous
things about violence in movies and ex-
plicit lyrics in music that most people don't
listen to anyway! It's all at our expense!
And don't think I've forgotten the Meese
Commission! All them bucks spent so's
they could look at dirty magazines and
movies. Right. And whodoyou think paid
for all their lunches? You know they
couldn't stand up! They had to have their
meetings catered! It's the same with Tipper
Gore and her stupid hearings. Well, they
could stand up.
This country is like an army. The
taxpayers are the infantry, stuck in the
trertches and trying to get out alive. The
Government is the officers, high and dry,
taking care of their big, fat, spotty asses.
But I've got a plan.
Sure,let'sdistribute those needles.First,
however, lace them wi th cyan id e or a rsen ic
or some cool poison. That way, we kill of a
lot of addicts, who, in turn, nipssome crime
in the bud. It's a beautiful thing.
Next, take all those hard-core crimi-
nals, the murderers, rapists and especially
the child molesters,and use them formedi-
cal experiments and stuff like that. Take
some others, put bombs with seven-day
timers in their heads, drop 'em off in
Baghdad, and tell 'em to raise hell. See?
We're cleaning out the prisons, dis-
covering lots of new, useful things, and
taking care of Iraq all at the same time. Life
If there's still too many criminals left,

Pigskin pigout showcases renovations

By Biljy Weaver
Ficklen Stadium, like the ECU Pi-
rate football team, is in the early stage of
renovation. There's a huge hole in the
stadium that will eventually be filled to
accomodate50,000fans. Fortunately for
ECU coaches, players and fans, the Pi-
rates hope that the holes in the 1993
team will also be filled.
For this year's PurpleGold game,
Head Coach Steve Logan had three main
objectives to improve last year's squad:
reduce turnovers, improve the kicking
game and develop the defense.
Logan said he was pleased with the
outcome. Junior college transfer punter
Bill Wilson showed promise with a 45.7-
Although the offense did turn the
ball over five times, Logan said he was
