University plans to demolish campus eyesore
By Warren Summer
Assistant News Editor
A new plan for campus
beautirication has a university
department on the move and a
campus eyesore on its way out.
The plan calls for the demoli-
tion of the green maintenance
building located near Umstead
dormitory and the transfer of
all materials and vehicles
housed in and around the struc-
ture to the buildings behind
Eppes Middle School.
Moving along with these
materials will be the
university's Physical Plant and
Architectural Planning depart-
ment, now headed by Robert
Webb. Webb said he and his
department are thrilled to be
moving to the new location, and
said he thinks those concerned
about the campus'environment
will be happy about the changes.
"I think everyone would
applaud it Webb said. "(The
building) has been outdated for
20 years. The Physical Plant
needs to be in one compound
and the department needs to
grow. We're behind the rest of
the universitythis is all part
of the reorganization of this de-
Webb said that the
grounds surrounding the facil-
ity will be "naturalized" and
there are plans to relandscape
the grounds for general appear-
ance. Webb said the concrete
slab located near the structure,
previously used for repair and
washing the department's
maintenance vehicles, will also
be removed in the beautifica-
tion process.
According to Richard
Brown, vice-chancellor for busi-
ness affairs, this move will not
only achieve the primary goal
of improving the university's
appearance, but will help re-
lieve a small portion of its park-
ing woes. Brown said that the
relocation of university main-
tenance vehicles from the park-
ing lot in front of the shelter
will create approximately 30
parking spaces for the univer-
Brown said beautification
was "a major reason" for the
dismantling of the building, but
that the university's major goal
was to create more academic
space for the future. Brown
said the university plans tohire
a landscape designer to help
with the project and the dis-
mantling of "the green barn"
would be completed by the end
of the second summer session.
Brown also said he is
happy to see the removal of
"the last really ugly compo-
nent of this campus

The American Dietetic As-
sociation (ADA) has recently ap-
proved ECU's dietetic program.
The program is designed to teach
students about nutrition and the
commercial preparation and de-
livery of food.
According to Helen Grove,
dean of the School of Human
Environmental Sciences, the ap-
proval will last 10 years.
"We are especially pleased
with the approval because it
comes with no stipulations,
something which is uncommon
in ADA reviews Grove said.
ECU's post-baccalaureate
program, Preprofessional Prac-
tice Program in Dietetics (AP4),
was also approved for 10 years.
In the past, Ar4hasbeen known
as the "Dietetic Internship Pro-
gram but more recently it has
picked up the ADA terminol-
AP4 is available to students
who have baccalaureate degrees
and have valid verification state-
ments in the Didactic Program
in Dietetics (DPD). After com-
pleting the AP4 program, stu-
dents can take a registration
exam,and upon completion,are
registered dietitians.
ECU has offered dietetics
as a major since 1965. According
to Dr. Dori Finley, chair of Nu-
trition and Hospitality Manage-
ment, students who choose di-
etetics as a major have many job
opportunities such as becoming
clinical, business and consult-
ant dietitians, teaching nutrition
and food service management,
conducting research in nutrition
or writing literature about nu-
trition and dietetics.

A statement released by the
Naval Aviation Depot said add-
ing its name to the list doesn't
mean it would close, nor does it
mean the depot will make the
final list of recommendations.
The statement also said the de-
pot has "provided all requested
data to the commission, and we
stand behind our record.
Naval Aviation Depot
spokesman Steve Green said this
morning that the depot is the larg-
est single-site employer east of
Interstate 95. He said the depot
employs 3,241 people, many of
them civilians. It has a payroll of
$131.1 million.
The depot provides aero-
nautical maintenance on a vari-
ety of aircraft, engines and com-
ponents for all branches of the
armed forces. Green said six such
facilitiesare operated by the U.S.

available this morning to provide

Guadalajara, 280 miles
northwest of Mexico City, is
Mexico's second largest city and
the capital of Jalisco state. It long
has been a center of operations
for several Mexican drug cartels.
TV footage showed the slain
cardinal, his glasses still in place,

Posadas, one of only two
Mexican cardinals, was the third

to teach the value of education outside the classroom. "They think

that sets his school a pa rt from oth-

or belts in the school and the stu-

street situations. Another impor-
tant facet is that it offers free train-

while Edwards trained with po-

The plan was drawn up in
an attempt to heal divisions be-
tween the United States and its
European allies over how to stop
the fighting in Bosnia. Most of the
allies rejected the Clinton
administration's proposal to at-
tack Serb forces with warplanes
and allow the outgunned Bosnian
Muslims to buy arms.
Italy's defense minister,
Fabio Fabbri, complained that
most of the European allies had
not been consulted in advance
about the plan.
The plan proposes to guar-
antee safe areas for Bosnian Mus-
lims with air power, to deploy
monitors on Bosnia's border with
Serb-dominated Yugoslavia to
keep out arms and to keep in place
the "no-fly" zone over Bosnia and
a naval blockade of Yugoslavia.
Critics say it would tacitly
accept thepracticeof ethnic cleans-
ing by allowing Bosnian Serbs to
retain the 70 percent of Bosnia they
now control.
British Defense Secretary
Malcolm Rifkind denied the plan
wou Id gi ve in to the Serbs or force
Muslims in the former Yugoslav
republic into ghettos.
"There can't be any long-
term settlement in Bosnia without
proper provisions for all commu-
nities in Bosnia he said.
Rifkind said the proposal
was not an abandonment of the
U.N. peace plan worked out by
mediators Cyrus Vance for the
United Nations and Lord Owen
for the European Community.
That plan would divide Bosnia
into 10 semi-autonomous repub-
lics based largely on ethnic groups.
That plan has been accepted
by Bosnia's Muslims and Croats
but rejected by Serbs, who would
have to give up some land and
drop their dream of uniting with
neighboring Serbia.
France suggested the safe
ha vensideaafter the Bosnian Serbs
rejected the Vance-Owen plan.
The Clinton administration
rules out deploying U.S. ground
forces in former Yugoslavia, but
would use air power to protect
U.N. peacekeepers who are at-
tacked in the safe areas to be cre-
ated under the new peace plan.
It was unclear how many
troops would be needed to en-
force safe areas.

Watching movies�and

own set of experiences to each

will please every viewer in the

A question surfaces in the
life of a critic that inevitably
causes some hair to bristle on
the back of his neck. The ques-
tion usually frames itself as fol-
lows: What gives a critic the
right to think that his opinion
is better than anyone else's?
Because the critic puts his
ideas in print the logical con-
clusion is that he thinks his
ideas are better than the aver-
age movie-goer. Because the
critic viciously denounces a

A critic's opinion is just
wrong nor right than anyone
else. Suffice it to say that the "I"
is always implied in everything
a critic writes, no matter how
pretentious he may sound. He
writes because he likes to write
and because he loves cinema,
not because he feels in any way
superior. He possesses some
amount of craft, hopefully, in
his writing and a fair amount of
courage, both which compel him
to write his ideas on paper for all
to see.
That cou ra ge ha s been tested
lately for this critic because the
last film I panned, "Dave got
favorable reviews and received
an A- from audiences polled by
Cinema Score. I received jeers
from friends and family for my
Now I plan to endorse a film
called "Lost in Yonkers" that has
been critically lambasted.
Neil Simon wrote the screen-
play for "Lost in Yonkers" based
on his Broadway play. Though I
have never been a Neil Simon
fan, I was pleasantly surprised
at the tenderness shown in his
most recent cinematic effort.
"Lost in Yonkers" is certainly
not a great film, but it serves as
a nice reminder of how good a
small film can make you feel
(which moviegoers may forget
in the midst of the huge sum-
mertime blockbusters like "Ju-
rassic Park" or "The Last Action
"Lost in Yonkers" is filled
with nice little moments that
add uptoa much fuller experi-
ence than the contrived BIG
moments do. There is a lot of
yelling near the climax that
detracts from all that has gone
before but not enough to ruin
the whole experience.
The story begins with two
young boys, Arty and Yakob,
being dropped at their
Grandmother's house. Their fa-
ther is forced to live on the road
for a year to pay off the bills
that he incurred while finding
cures for his terminally ill wife.
The seriousness of the situ-
ation is lightened by the two
boys' banter about their father's
family. They laugh about how
stern Grandma (Irene Worth)
is and how nutty Aunt Bella
(Mercedes Ruehl) is aqd how
their other aunt breaths funny.
"Did you ever notice says one
brother, "that everyone on
Dad's side of the family has
something wrong with them?"
Aunt Bella provides many

Today: Heat Exhaustion
Answered by Jennifer Phillips, Student Health Center
During the summer months
I have a job that requires me to
spend a great deal of time
outside. What are the signs of
heat exhaustion?
During hot, humid days, par-
ticularly days when there is no
breeze, anyone can be affected
by heat. The very young, very
old, chronically ill, overweight,
athletes, and those who work in
warm places, are all particularly
susceptible to extreme heat.
Heatexhaustion typically oc-
curs when body fluids are lost
through heavy sweating. Because
of high humidity or too many
layers of clothing, the sweat does
not evaporate as it should. As a
result, the body does not cool
sufficiently. Fluid loss alo de-
creases the blood flow to vital
organs which results in a form of

Various billboards sporting
enormous Campbell's Soup cans
have sprouted around Greenville.
These ads beckon to both the fans of
Andy Warhol and Pop Art alike, but
do not erroneously assume that the
soup can labels designate that the
Warhol exhibit at the Greenville
Warhol's early Pop Art
Instead, the exhibit focuses
mainly onaseries of silkscreens from
1986. The theme of these pieces is
"Cowboys and Indians mostly the
glorified cowboys and Indians from
America's mythical interpretationof
the wild west. Portraits of John
Wayne, Annie Oakley, General
Custer and Geronimo grace thewalls;
each portrait is based on a photo-
graph and then out! ined and colored
through a photo-silkscreen printing
technique. This processcould be uti-
lized to mass produceart�a Warhol
The actual faces, especially that
of Annie Oakley, are enhanced only
slightly, while the rest of the body is
highlighted in an off-color and off-
kilter style reminiscent of early
television's faulty transmission. The
medals on Oakley's chest and the
military uniform ofTeddy Roosevelt
both display Warhol's propensity to
experiment with color and form.
Some of the portraits are based
face peersattheaudiencetroma pose
first pictured in grammar school his-
tory books;theJohnWaynesilkscreen
is based on a 12 publicity still from
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
This silkscreen is the only one in the
collection that bears the word
"unique" insteadof itsprintnumber.
The story regarding the print's
uniquenessdiffersdependingon the
source, but accord ing toone version,
no one from either the John Wayne
give permission for its use. Wayne's
son apparently offered to solve the
dilemma by suggesting Warhol do-
na te one of the prints to be a u ctioned
off for charity (noone explained how
this solved the problem). In true
Warholian fashion, Andy remarked
that someone could buya printfrom
him, and then donate it, but he was
not going to randomly donate any-
Another story regarding the
print's controversy centers around
The museum's pamphlet suggests
that Wayne's Foundation did not
like the color of the pistol, which was
brown (the reason why is not given).
Supposedly Warhol had the color
changed; the pistol in the gallery's
print is definitely a vivid robin's egg
Aside from the portraits of our
pop heroes, Warhol's "Cowboy sand
Indians" series also includes some
more accurate representationsof the
American past. A silkscreen of
Kachina dolls and one of a North
West Indian mask reflect the culture
of the real Native Americans, whilea
silvery silkscreen of an Indian Head
nickel represents the more biased
view of American Indians,especially
since the word freedom is ironically
outlined in bold black.
Perhaps the most striking print
in the series is that of a mother and
child; the bright colors, strong fea-
tures and physical closeness relay a
more universal view of the original
inhabitants of the wild west This
print lacks the immediate recogni-
tion of a known face, but it lacks
nothing in mesmerizing power.
However, the show is not com-
pletely a return tothemythical west
Disney fans will be happy to see a
silkscreen of both Mickey and
Donald alongside one of Buzz
Aldrin's moonlight stroll. For Vari-
ety, Hand Painted Flower, the oldest
piece in the exhibit (1972) reminds
patrons of Warhol's artistic diver-
Other prints include a colorful
eye-catching speed skater from the
1984 Olympics, and a cubist rendi-
tionoftheRollingStones lead singer
with his "jagged" hair spiking out-
wards � "visual pun intended

The exhibit is small, but by ex-
amining the copy numbers at the
bottom of most of the prints, it is
possible tocomprehend the signifi-
cance of Warhol's mass producing

artistic world, excepting John
Wayne of course.
Allowing for trie misleading
soup can label advertisements, the
show is really worth seeing, espe-
cially to break Pop Art stereotypes.

Pitt County gets zoned
Planning Board holds its first
meeting concerning the
proposed zoning ordinance
Pitt County is eagerly awaiting its make-over.
Two days ago, the first public hearing was
held concerning the county's proposed zoning or-
dinance; other hearings are pending. These will be
scheduled before the Board of Commissioners votes
on a final proposal in the coming months.
The Pitt County Planning Board has put to-
gether a zoning ordinance proposal detailing the
possibilities in store for unincorporated land.
County officials plan to adopt zoning for 350,000
acres of the unincorporated parts of Pitt County.
Along with the proposal comes a bit of controversy
concerning the advantages of present planning
and so-called "future planning
Some land owners are concerned that zoning
would strip them of their property rights. For
some, this belief stems from the fact that an ordi-
nance would control land use by designating areas
of the county for certain types of development. In
other words, the county would look at an area of
land, decide what its present position is in devel-
opment and
deem it resi-
cial or ru-
Board and
Department staff have been toiling over this pro-
posed ordinance for the past two years. Their deci-
sion has not been anywhere close to rash, so when
people question the approach, one has to wonder.
What good could possibly come out of a zon-
ing designation that guesses at future develop-
ment activities? The Planning Board might as well
consult the tarot cards or read tea leaves to decide
the future of land development in Pitt County.
Sound ridiculous?
Future planning is more or less the same game.
The consequences could result in over-populated
residential districts, or worse, empty lots where
some visionary thought residents would want to
move. Would they then use a crystal ball, or take
out a map of Pitt County, close their eyes and
Fortunately, the most logical road is the one
that the Planning Department has taken: Current
Planning Lane. The question they are asking is:
what is most important to the needs of Pitt County
at this point and time?
The ordinance establishes eight zoning dis-
tricts that suit the developmental needs in the
county. The districts include two rural, two non-
residential and four residential areas. These have
been applied to existing needs and do not show
future development potential.
When accepted, the planning staff will make
suggestions on proposed uses and the great gurus
at the county commissioners office will decide the
fate of the county. Successful future development
can be influenced by bringing into effect the past
accomplishments, present variables and a vision.
Support the Planning Board and be a part of
the future of Pitt County. We can all share in the
vision. Call thecounty planning department for infor-
mation regarding upcoming hearing dates at 830-

Have your parents ever laid
a big guilt trip about how hard
they have to work just to put you
through college and how you don't
realize just how good, how easy
you have it? If so, you might want
to force them to read this edition
of RtM. Third parties who agree
with your argumentsalways seem
to work more persuasively in a
discussion. So this one's for your
parents. You can thank me later.
Hopefully, this'll help you out.
Now parents, we, your chil-
dren, are not quite the ignorant
and ungrateful slobs you some-
times take us for. Most of us real-
ize just how hard you work as
well as the enormous responsi-
bilities and burdens you must
shoulder. We know that it can't be
easy to keep up the mortgage pay-
ments, make the car payments,
support the family and put one or
more children through four or
more very expensive years of col-
lege. You have our very sincere
gratitude and thanks. We, the chil-
dren, say "Thank You
While most of usrespect you,

the parents, it very often doesn't
seem like a mutual respect.
Haven't you at least once used the
"You don't know how good you
have it When I was young, I had
to speech on your children? Go
on, admit it. All parents do it, and
we (in all likelihood) will one day
do the same to our children. That
still doesn't make it any less an-
noying or unfair.
Think back, if you will, to
when you were young, if you can
remember back that far (just kid-
ding)! Doyou remember what you
had to do during that time in your
life and how hard it was? Prob-
ably not. It seems that most adults
forget the bad times once they've
survived their trials by fire. Then,
adults condemn the young when
they complain about going
through the same thing.
Being a teenager in the '90s is
noeasy business. Each generation
has its problems. I'm not so sure
what the big problems were dur-
ing your generation, and I would
not presume to try to explain to
you what they were. But I can
plainly see what the malfunctions
are in my generation. We've got
loads of illegal drugs, global
warming, waning rainforests, pol-
lution, inflation, a staggr ring defi-
cit, increasingly volatile racial re-
lationships, an unstable world
political situation, rising costs of
med:one and education the list
is endless. Throughout this whole
increasingly complex mess, we've
all got to try to figure out who we
are and what we want to do with
our lives.
While all of this is going on,
we're busy trying to leam things
that will help us later in life. At the
same time, we're studying for life
and many of us also work full or
part-time jobs. Try to imagine go-
ing to four hours of classes about
subjects you know virtually noth-
ing about and trying to absorb
that knowledge, and then going to
work for another five or six hours
(often difficult work for skimpy
Some of us may be putting in
over 50 hours a week between
school and our jobs, and it is most
definitely not easy. Consider
how tired you are after a 9 to 5
day. Consider how tired you
might be after an 8 to 8 day, and
then getting a slim paycheck at
the end of the week.
We do not ask for your
pity. The times, they are a-
changin and so is the process of
growing up � we accept that.
We ask only for the respect that
we deserve for the efforts that
we put forth in our daily lives.
We should not be bothered with
tales of youthful woe from back
in the Bad Old Days. The now
has its problems too, and we
along with it. We do not need to
be burdened with the ghosts of
your troubled past; we have
plenty of our own.
So parents, understand
that we are proud of you, and
we appreciate what you have
done for us. We only ask that
you tell us the same with sincer-
ity and respect.

about it, go get a pizza and watch

Letters to the Editor
Christian proclaims God's love unconditional
To the Editor:
I'm writing this letter in
response tojim Senyszyn's let-
ter "Atheist uses Bible to show
error of homophobes" in or-
der to expose inconsistencies
and false statements concern-
ing his desperate attempt to
use God's very Word (the
Bible) to contradict God's plan
for natural sexual relation-
ships. First, I will address spe-
cific Scripture references that
Senyszyn uses in his letter that
when simply read just don't
seem to support his viewpoint.
Senyszyn quotes Dr.
Arthur Frederick Ide, "in nei-
ther Leviticus 18:22 nor
Deuteronomy 23:18 is there a
reference to homosexuality
OK, let's read it, from the New
American Standard version,
Leviticus 18:22, "You shall not
lie with a male as one lies with
a female; it is an abomination
As far as Deuteronomy 23:18
is concerned, it totally deals
with a different issue which is
not used in denouncing ho-
In Matthew 10:14-15 and
Luke 10:10-12, the article says
that Sodom and Gomorrah
were destroyed because of
their inhospitality to strang-
ers. According to the NIV Life
Application Bible's footnotes,
"The cities of Sodom and
Gomorrah were destroyed by
fire from heaven because of
their wickedness (Genesis
19:24-25). Those who reject the
gospel when they hear it will
be worse off than the wicked
people of these destroyed cit-
ies, who never heard the gos-
pel at all As to his references
of positive homosexual affairs
reported in the Bible, every one
of these situations deals with
strong, emotional friendships
and heartfelt love for one an-
other and have absolutely
nothing to do with sexual rela-
tions. As far as the
"homoerotic" poetry in the
Song of Solomon, the language
used there is between a man
and a woman in the context of
marital relations.
1 Cor. 6:9 says, "Or do
you not know that the unrigh-
teous shall not inherit the king-
dom of God? Do not be de-
ceived; neither fbmicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor
effeminate, nor homosexuals
shall inherit the kingdom of
God Additional Scripture
references tha t deal specifically
with the issue of homosexual-
ity are Rom. 1:26-27 and Tim.
1:10. As Christians, we do not
condemn individuals, but can-
not accept acts of disobedience
towards God's truth as being
justified. We see no sin as be-
ing greater than the other and
proclaim that God is willing to
receive anyone who comes to
him in faith, accepting the re-
ality of Christ's death on the
cross and resurrection as pay-
ment for the penalty of our
sinful nature. Many homo-
sexuals believe that their de-
sires are normal and that they
have a right to express them.
But God does not obligate nor
encourage us to fulfill all our
desires (even normal ones).
Those desires that violate his
laws must be controlled.

Social decline
caused by lack of
family values
I grew up about 20 miles south of
Greenville in a rural area. Throughout my
childhood and up until the time I left home,
in 1986, peopledidn't lock their homes when
they went out for a short while. The same
thing with their vehicles.
Now, because of the rapid increase in
criminal activity in the area, thingsarediffer-
ent, and have been for the past three or four
Our society has grown progressively
sicker at an alarming rate for the past 30
years. William Bennet, a former cabinet mem-
ber in die Bush administration, feels that
American culture is in decline, and he has
proof to back up that assessment.
Bennet has collected data in a docu-
ment he calls "The Index of LeadingCultural
Indicators This index charts several cul-
tural indicators between the years 1960 to
1990. Such factors as the number of crimes
committed, teen pregnancy rates, abortion
rates, average SAT scores and instances of
child abuse make up the index. Without fail,
every indicator which should be up is down,
and every indicator that should be down is
up (with apologies to Al Gore for borrowing
his campaign mantra).
Bennet notes that this precipitous de-
cline in American culture comes during a
roughly 30- year period of incredible gov-
ernment spending.Sincel960,Bennet'sdocu-
ment points out, total social spending by
government has increased a whopping 500
percent to a present total of almost $800
billion. Yet interestingly and frighteningly,
during this same period, social pathologies
increased and educational achievements de-
creased. Here are some examples cited in
Bennet document: average SAT scores have
declined 80 points, violent crime has in-
creased by 560 percent, illegitimate births
have risen by 419 percent, divorce rates have
quadrupled, the teen suicide rate has gone
up by 200 percent and reported casesof child
abuse have risen to2.7 million cases per year.
Certainly some of this decline can be
attributed to an increase in population. But a
41 percent population increase in the United
States between 1960 and 1990 can't possibly
account for the majority of the increases in
crime, teen pregnancy and child abuse.
Bennet believes that this marked deg-
radation is the result of the declining atti-
tudes and beliefs of Americans. He cites
social scientist James Q. Wilson's theory that
"people, especially young people, have em-
braced an ethos that values self-expression
over self-control
It is no surprise that even those who
live in the hinterland, like my parents, have
recently become more wary and cautious
and more sensitive overall to the potential of

When George Bush and Dan Quayle
spokeof family valuesduring the 1992 presi-
dential campaign, they were belittled for
their stance. Think about it this way: if the
government has spent so much money on
social programs over the last three decades
tono avail, what can the problem be? It's not
a lack of intervention by government; so it
must have something to do with the ethos of
society itself. Therein lies the cure for
America's declining cultural health.

With a rain-soaked confer-
ence tournament championship
in their pocket, the Pirates re-
turned to Greenville to await the
announcement of post-season
pairings. On Monday afternoon
the ECU baseball team, along
with about 30 of their closest pals
and media types, piled into the
Buccaneer Room at Scales Field
House to watch ESPN's telecast
of the NCAA pairings.
Sighs of disappointmentech-
oed in the room as ECU received
a No. 5 seed. The Pirates, with a
record of 40-17, were paired with
the University of South Carolina,
the no. 2 seed, with a record of
38-18-1. ECU has made the
NCAA tournament in five of the
last seven years.

PHOENIX (AP) � Charles
Barkley was named the NBA's
ing a decade-long lock on the
award by three guys named Larry,
Michael and Magic.
With Larry Bird and Magic
Johnson retired, Barkley had only
Michael Jordan of those three to
beat out, and the NBA announced
this morning mat that's exactly
what Sir Charles had done.
"I don't know what criteria
they use. One year, I should have
won, but it's just one of those
things the 6-foot-6 forward said
Monday night after helping the
Phoenix Suns beat Seattle 105-91
in Game i of the Western Confer-
ence final.
Barkley won the award with
835 points, including59 first-place
votes. Barkley and Jordan were
the only players named on all 98
ballots cast by a panel of sports
writers and broadcasters in NBA
cities. Yet, Jordan finished only
third, behind Hakeem Olajuwon
of Houston. Olajuwon had 647
points, including 22 first-place
votes, while Jordan had 565 points
and 13 first-place votes.
The remaining four first-place
votes went to Patrick Ewing of
New York, who was fourth with
359 points.
Bird won the award in 1984,
'85 and '86. Johnson won in '87, '89
and '90, and Jordan won in 1988
and the past two years. Moses
Malone was MVP in 1982 and
Barkley completed the regu-
lar season with a career total of
16,128 points, a 235 average, and
8,007 rebounds, averaging 11.7.
In his first season with Phoe-
nix, which traded three starters
to acquire him from Philadelphia
last June, Barkley averaged 25.6
points, 12.2 rebounds and a per-
sonal-best 5.1 assists.

nity comes the possibility of be-
ing drafted in June by a profes-
sional team. Watkins is quick to
avoid questions of what he'll do
if he's drafted.
"I'll have to wait and see
Watkins said. "My first focus is
on ECU and getting to the Col-
lege World Series
The drafting order for the
teams that made the playoffs has
already been set.
The Magic will have the op-
tion of pairing 7-foot-6 center
Shawn Bradley alongsideO'Neal.
Chris Webber of Michigan and
Jamal Mashburn of Kentucky
have also been mentioned as pos-
sible No. Is, but it's Bradley who
creates the most intriguing possi-
Would Orlando dare team a
7-foot rookie of the year and a
player almost a half-foot taller?
Or will they take the safe route
and take Webber or Mashburn,
thereby solidifyinga position that
was manned last season by Terry
Catledge, Jeff Turner, Anthony
Bowie and Tom Tolbert?
The Magic will make their
choice known when the draft is
held June 30 at Auburn Hills,
"It's the best of all possible
worlds Williams said.
Bradley didn't play the last
two seasons because he was serv-
ing a Mormon mission in Austra-
lia. He has excellent talent but
isn't yet heavy enough to bang
around with the league's best big
men. Still, general managers find
it hard to resist his lure.
Webber, a 6-9 forward who
led the Wolverines to the national
championship the past two sea-
sons, is the first member of the
famed Fab Five class to head to
the pros. He shot 62 percent from
the field and averaged 19.2 points
and 10.1 rebounds per game last
Mashburn, a 6-8 forward
who can score inside or outside,
averaged 21 points as a junior.
He was the first underclassman

to declare himself eligible for
the draft.
Other underclassmen ex-
pected to go early include
Anfernee Hardaway, a 6-7
guard from Memphis State with
exceptional shooting range, and
Rodney Rogers, a muscular 6-7
forward with a nice shooting

(AP)�Guess who is the most
popular athlete in America.
Michael Jordan?
Joe Montana?
Nolan Ryan?
Nope, nope, nope.
Dorothy Hamill and Mary Lou
Retton, long past their Olympic
glory years, astonishingly are tied
as America's most beloved athletes,
according to a poll released to The
Associated Press.
Jordan, Montana, Ryan and
Wayne Gretzky lead their sports in
popularity among currentcompeti-
tors, yet all four trail far behind
Hamill, the 1976 gold medal figure
skater, and Retton, the 1984 gold
medal gymnast.
Mike Tyson is the most hated
athlete in the country, according to
the poll,drawingfar more negative
ratings than runners-up Pete Rose,
John McEnroe and Jose Canseco on
the list of 809 active, retired or de-
ceased sports personalities.
New York YankeesbossGeorge
Steinbrenner is the most disliked
team owner.
Muhammad Ali and Babe Ruth
are the best known athletes, their
names recognized by more than 97
percent of Americans. Yet the most
popular former baseball player is
Henry Aaron, whose rating is only
slightly behind the virtual tie for
No. 1 by Retton and Hamill.
"Being well known doesn't
necessarily mean popular said
Nye Lavalle, head of Sports Mar-
keting Group in Dallas, which con-
ducted the survey as part of its on-
going "America's Study acultural
and social census of the country.
"Michael Jordan is well known,
but he's not as well known as
Muhammad Ali. Yet Jordan is more
popular Lavalle said. "And de-
spite the perception by many people
that Jordan is the mostpopularath-
lete in the country, the reality is he's
not. His image has suffered in the
last year, especially with that gam-
bling incident.
"Mary Lou Retton and Dor-
othy Hamill represent that whole-
some, energetic,spirited,honest,all-
American image that cuts across
gender, all ages and all regions of
the country
The poll, based on responses
from 1,479 questionnaires returned
last November and December, re-
flects the views of Americans 12
years old and up and has a margin
oferrorofplusorminus2.6 percent.

of those polled,haven'tbeen01ym
piansfora long time. But both have
enhanced their images since their
gold-medal days.
Retton, 25, travels almost con-
stantly, giving motivational talks,
putting on occasional exhibitions
and serving as special ad visor to the
President'sCouncil on Physical Fit-
ness and Sports.
Hamill, 36, performed in the
Ice Capades for nine years, pu tting
on 13 shows a week in 36 cities a
year. She's still performing and re-
cently bought the Ice Capades.
"I'm totally thrilled even to be
mentioned with those names, and
it's incredible and extremely flat-
tering to be ahead of people like
Michael Jordan Retton said from
Houston, where she is preparing to
narrate a show with the Houston
Symphony. "I can remember being
young and watching Dorothy. I
did. She was the all-American girl
and was one of my idols growing
"As a competitor, I was a verv
emotional athlete. When I did well,
I showed my feelings. When I had
to score that perfect 10 to win the
gold medal, and when I did it, my
emotions came outand I was rejoic-
ing.Ithinkall of America was tuned
in and felt that same moment with
Retton and Hamill each still
receive hundreds of fan letters a
"I must say that people are so
kind and so gracious to me, it al-
ways surprises me Hamill said
from New York. "Maybe what all
of these (popular athletes) have in
common is that they're really first-
class people and they happen todo
something extraordinarily well.
They're really good, genuine
people. That's what I've noticed
about a lot of the athletes that I've
really admired
Athletes as a whole are well
liked, probably more so than other
celebrities, Lavalle said. Being con-
troversial can hurt an athlete's popu-
larity, but not always.
Martina Navratilova, who has
openly discussed and writtenabout
herlesbian relationships, is the most
popular active women's tennis
player, although she trails former
rival Chris Evert, now retired.
"It's interesting that Martina
had a higher rating than Jennifer
Capriati, who won rheOlympicgold
last year, and Monica Seles, who's
No. 1 Lavalle said. "It shows that
people respect her a lot
Hamill agreed, noting that
Navratilova had a key ingredient,
besides championship ability and
longevity, that results in popular-
ity. "She's honest. She doesn't pre-
tend to be something she's not. I
think the people really pick up on
that. I admire Martina for
thatHamill said.
In men's tennis, sass and flash
reign, with Jimmy Connors most
popular among the retired or semi-
retired players and Andre Agassi
tops among the active players.
Even though survey results
might have been far different if con-
ducted in, say, sports bars or at
events, the athletes favored by the
general public shared certain char-
"We divide the athletes into
fivecategories: megastars, super-
stars, stars, rising stars and wanna-
be stars or nobodies Lavalle said.
"What separates a megastar is
longevity, character, all-time per-
formance and graciousness. Maybe
the missing ingredient in the regu-
lar stars is graciousness. You can
see it in Mary Lou Retton, Dorothy
Hamill, Nolan Ryan and Joe Mon-
tana. Looks aren't the factor. It's
that spirit, charisma and charm that
each of these people possesses.
Communication skills help, but
Nolan Ryan and Joe Montana are
not great communicators. They're
great men and great athletes. Hu-
mility is another factor
Bo Jackson, the second most
popularbaseball player, is far ahead
of any other major leaguer.
"It's not just his performance
Lavalle said. "Look at what he's
overcome and achieved in base-
ball and football. He also embod-
ies that all-American, wholesome
look. And Nike has contributed
