Multimedia offers CNN on the side
By Jason Williams
Staff Writer
Beginning this month, cus-
tomers of M ul timedia Cable vision
will see a change in their service
and their bills. Multimedia
Cablevision serves many eastern
North Carolina markets including
Greenville. Incompliance with the
Cable Consumer Protection Act of
1992, Multimedia and other cable
providers have changed the way
they charge for certain services.
"The FCC, Federal Commu-
nications Commission, according
to the 1992 Cable Act, set specific
guidelines tor charging customers
on a per channel basis said Bill
Paramore, General Manager of
Multimedia.
"Along with our tiered chan-
nels (basic cable), we now offer a la
carte channels. Subscribers can
choose either to receive or not to
receive these channels
The a la carte channels, which
in Greenville include CNN, Head-
line News, TNT and TNN will cost
the consumer extra, usually be-
tween $1-2 a piece, though the price
varies across the different markets.
"If you want the a la carte
channels, you should do nothing.
They will not be taken off the air
Sept. 1. You will be charged for
these channels on your next bill
Paramore said.
Paramore said that Multime-
dia will not be dropping or adding
any channels at this time, though
after Oct. 6 the company may drop

Greenville honors
professor emeritus
By Warren Sumner
Staff Writer
The city of Greenville hon-
ored one of its cultural leaders
this summer when Dr.
Mohammed Ahad, a professor
emeritus for ECU, was presented
acertiheateof appreciation. Ahad,
the founder and first president of
the Eastern Carolina Multicul rural
Center, was recognized at the
center's annual Gala in April for
his outstanding work in cultural
studies.
Ahad, an Indian immigrant
to the U.S worked to integrate
new cultures to the Greenville and
Pitt County region. After retiring
from ECU in 1991, Ahad set forth
with the task of establishing the
center. The success resulting from
a series of cultural round tables,
put together by the professor wi th
funding by the North Carolina
Humanities Council, prompted
the center to name Ahad as its
president.
The 70-year-old professor is
excited about the work he has
done with the center and looks
for further improvements in Pitt
county's cultural atmosphere.
Ahad said he was pleased to be
recognized by the city.
"I feel happy Ahad said.
"I am thankful I have achieved
much with the center
While gratified by the city's
honor, Ahad said he is equally
proud of the work he has done
with his doctorate field, by help-
ing nursing students become
aware of the importance of cul-
tural diversity. Ahad said that
while cultural awareness is im-
portant in all professions, it is tan-
tamount to the health care profes-
sions.
"I have always been inter-
ested to include (cultural aware-
ness) in nursing. In health care
you need to be aware of what
culture the patient is from. For
example: In some cultures you
can't eat certain foods, the health
care professional needs to be
aware of that to provide for them
Ahad said he plans to con-
tinue bringing cultural studies to
nursing education and has an-
nounced his resignation as presi-
dent of the multicultural center to
concentrate on a new project.
Ahad said that his new project,
the Institute for Indo-American
Programs for Excellence in Nurs-
ing and Scholarships, will raise
the cultural awareness of future
health care professionals.
"Students are the best people
to learn this Ahad said. "They
are the ones who will help to break
down barriers

ECU holds
rare 18th
century map
By Tammy Carter
Staff Writer
Ralph Lee Scott, head of
the documents and maps de-
partment at Joyner Library,
recently presented a paper
about a rare and valuable
early 18th century map of
North Carolina at an interna-
tional conference in Chicago.
During a conference ses-
sion on "The Mapping of
America Scott discussed the
few surviving copies of the
map of the colony that later
became North Carolina. He
said that there are only three
copies of the original map in
existence today, and only one
of those remains in the United
States. The map Scott dis-
cussed is currently held in
ECU's Joyner Library. The
other two are in England, one
at Eton College and the other
at the Public Records in Lon-
don.
"The map was first
printed in 1733 by Edward
Moseley Scott said. "It
shows North Carolina as it
was in 1733
for free. Cable was then a new in-
dustry and Congress thought they
needed protection. Now broadcast
channels compete with cable, and
we think we deserve compensa-
tion if they are going to carry our
signal.
"I know cable bills will be
going up Salat said. "If WCTI is
not on the lineup, I think you should
pay even less. Look at who sent
reporters to theOuter Banks to cover
the hurricane. It wasn't Multime-
dia, it was WCTI, WITN and
WNCT. Where would cable be
without broadcast channels such
as WCTI?"
Though negotiations have
thus far been fruitless, the two sides
will meet again next week.
Paramore says Multimedia is "hold-
ing the door open till the last day
Despite the new charges for a
la carte channels, Paramore said
that many customers will actu-
ally see a decrease in their bills.
According to the new regulations,
cable providers can no longer
charge for additional outlets
within the home or for remote
control service.
"If you're paying for a re-
mote, your bill goes down
Paramoresaid. "If you're paying
for an additional outlet, your bill
goes down.
"We have over 6,000 cus-
tomers who receive additional
outlet service in the Greenville
area alone. Their bills could be
$30-40 less. It's the same tor
remotes. That's a substantial re-
duction in your bill
Congresswoman speaks
to student body leaders
By Maureen Rich
Assistant News Editor
North Carolina Congress-
woman Eva Clayton brought ad-
vice and a sense of humor to the
ECU campus when she addressed
the Council of Shidejpt Orgaruza-
tion Leaders (COSOL), and other
student body members yesterday
afternoon in Mendenhall.
In introducing Clayton,
ECU Chancellor Richard Eakin
noted that while Clayton often
oriented herself with the ECU
campus, "particularly notewor-
thy is that Ms. Clayton is here to
visit the students Eakin said.
"The most important thing she
could do
North Carolina elected
Clayton to the 103rd Congress in
November of 1992, after witness-
ing Clayton's 25 years of work in
both government and the private
sector, as well as 10 years of work
as an elected official.
Clayton reminds ECU stu-
dents that as the world of tech-
nology expands, the number of
opportunities available for stu-
dents increases as well.
"I hope that you are prepar-
ing yourself academically and
morally, as well as physically
Clayton said. "You are graduat-
ing at a time that is very promis-
ing
Clayton spoke of the grow-
ing international competition
among students, instead of mere
local or even national competi-
tion for jobs.
"To the extent that you do
not understand that, will be the
extent you are not able to further
the full potential of your career
Clayton said.
While acknowledging that
education is first the acquisition
of skills, Clayton offered a dif-
ferent perspective on the secret
of furthering one's academic po-
tential successfully.
"Education is beyond
that Clayton said. "Education
is the acquisition of the skills for
the purpose of making good
judgments and making contri-
butions
"And I hope that, as you
move into your individual ca-
reers, that you carry with you a
value system that says knowl-
edge is for the purpose of en-
hancing first your lives, and then
your families and your corn-

Donald R. Lennon, an Edenton resident, discovered this historic map in his attic in 1982. The map is on
display at Joyner Library's manuscript collection room.
Moseley was a surveyor
general of North Carolina, a
judge and a member of the leg-
islature in the state during co-
lonial times.
"I traced the history of the
map and who possessed it at
different times Scott said.

Donald R. Lennon, an
Edenton resident, found the map
that currently hangs in Joyner
Library. He was going through
some family papers in his attic
in 1982 when he found the map.
It had been stored in the attic
since the Civil War.
Scott presented his paper
at the 15th International Con-
ference on the History of Car-
tography, held at the Newberry
Library's Hermon Dunlap
Smith Center. The confer-
ence is held every three years
in different countries
throughout the world. The

Book censorship increasing
WASHINGTON (AP) �
Parents made347attempts to cen-
sor books, plays and other mate-
rial in their children's schools last
year and succeeded nearly half
the time, a free-speech advocacy
group reported today, saying
school censorship is on the rise.
The targets ranged from in-
novative teaching programs and
Pulitzer Prize-winning plays to
classics such as "Sleeping Beauty
"Of Mice and Men "The Catcher
in the Rye and the cartoon game
book "Where's Waldo?"
"Little House on the Prai-
rie" by Laura Ingalls Wilder came
under attack for its depiction of
Indians, while books ranging from
the classic' 'Tom Sawyer to Willie
Morris'autobiography "Good Old
Boy: A Delta Boyhood" were tar-
geted for alleged racist content.
The report by People for the
American Way, a liberal advocacy
group, said nearly half of the pro-
tests stemmed from either sexual
content or objectionable language,
but that a third were raised be-
cause of religious concerns, often
involving alleged references to
Satanism or wi tchcraf t by authors.
While most actions were in-
stigated by individual parents, the
report accused conservative ac-
tivist groups of waging a national
behind-the-scenes campaign of
censorship in schools.

"Parents are reacting to the
frontal assault that is being inflicted
upon their children Leftist and
anti-religious dogma are infiltrat-
ing every part of the nation's pub-
licschools Mawyer said in a state-
ment in response to the censorship
report.
Paul Hetrick, a spokesman
for Focus on the Family, another
group interested in the content of
books used in schools, said the in-
cidents cited in the censorship re-
port only reflect the action of "par-
ents who choose to be involved in
the lives of their school-age chil-
dren
The report, "Attacks on the
Freedom to Learn documented
347 incidents of attempted censor-
ship of books and other publica-
tions in school libraries and class-
rooms during the 1992-93 school
year in 44 states.
In 143 cases, or about 41 per-
cent of the time, the complaints
resulted in the material being with-
drawn or somehow censored, the
report said.
By comparison, the group
found 376 censorship attempts in
schools in the 1991-92 year, 264 in
the 1990-91 school year, 244 in 1989-
90 and 172 in 1988-89.
While religious conserva fives
were singled out for criticism, the
report also documented cases in
which books were targeted by lib-
erals, usually becauseof allegations
of racism.
Mark Twain's 'Tom Sawyer"
was attacked by a parent in Co-
lumbus, Ind whosaid it contained
"terms that belittle people of color
And "The Learning Tree a story
of a 12-year-old black boy growing
up in a small Kansas town in the
1920s, was challenged by a parent
in Rosemount, Minn.
Both protests were rejected.
In Riverside, Ca lif some par-
ents wanted "Sleeping Beauty"
removed from elementary school
libraries, arguing the story was too
violent and frightening. That re-
quest too was rejected.
The popular cartoon game
book "Where's Waldo?" was
stripped from the school libraries
in Easthampton, N.Y after it was
discovered a woman's partially
exposed breast was included in an
illustration. The book later was re-
turned after parent protests.
The school board in
Souderton, Pa banned Alice
Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning
"The Color Purple" from a 10th
grade English course because of its
explicit language and sexual con-
tent.
In Wellsville, Kan the high
school drama class was prevented
from performing an adaption of
"Dracula" after protests from four
parents and a minister.
The play was put on after
references to God and blood were
deleted.

Jurors stall in
murder trial
GREENSBORO (AP) � A
federal jury failed to reach a ver-
dict Tuesday in the case of Joey
Caldwell.
Caldwell faces 58 charges
stemming from the slayings of
two Hamlet residents.
Jurors sent notes to U.S. Dis-
trict Judge William Osteen twice
saying they were deadlocked, but
he ordered them to try again to-
day, rejecting a defense motion
for a mistrial.
Jurors heard testimony and
arguments over six days and de-
liberated more than eight hours
sinceMondayafternoon, 77k Char-
lotte Obsewer reported.
Caldwell is charged in the
slayingsofMaceoMcEachemand
McEachern's mother, Vela, in
1991.
Prosecutors contend they
were killed for $2 million in life
insurance.
Maceo McEachern had
agreed to buy the insurance after
buying rights toCaldwell's sports
drink, Pro-Formance, for a small
amount of money up front and a
percentage of future drink sales.
Caldwell, 37, was not
charged with murder because a
statecourt trial wouldhavebarred
testimony by his wife, Barbara, a
key witness in the case.
The charges include weap-
ons violations, witness-tamper-
ing, mail fraud and laundering
insurance money.

The East Carolinian 3
!mily hits Outer Banks; Hatteras suffers most
id the strongest of its 115
mph winds and storms � re-
ned offshore, the flooding that
did hit the fragile islands con-
vinced at east one resident to
leave the next time a big storm
looms.
"I won't stay again. I'm out
of here for sure for a Category 3
storm Joyce Wescoat of Frisco
said today.
She and her husband, Jeff,
were at their Buxton tackle shop
as the storm raged, then returned
to find water pouring into their
home.
"Was I scared? Hell yes, I
was scared Mrs. Wescoat said.
Elsewhere in Buxton, a pre-
dawn tour showed the wind and
tide crushed one building that
was part of a small motel com-
plex of single-story, concrete-
block units. At least two boats
sank at a marina on a creek at the
Fish House Restaurant.
Sand was swept from un-
der a red Jeep parked alongside
N.C. 12, dropping the vehicle into
a hole so deep its roof was paral-
lel to the roadside.
The storms caused extensive
soundside flooding on the Outer
Banks villages of Hatteras, Frisco,
Buxton and Avon, according to
reports from the Dare County
Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff Bert Austin said to-
day he had two feet of water in
his home � the first time that has
happened since 1944.
"Many homes were heavily
damaged by winds and
soundside flooding. A large num-
ber of boats were lost in the mari-
nas. Personal vehicles were swept
off roads and destroyed the Na-
tional Weather Service said in a
m Buxton this morning.
to the north � in-
- : i i Waves and
danthe - seemed to have es-
ed serious damage visible in
the pre-dawn darkness.
A state of emergency for all
of Dare County except Hatteras
Nland was lifted at 8 a.m and
bridges from the north and west
had long lines of motorists wait-
ing to return to the island this
morning.
' Access to Hatteras Island
remained limited Wednesday
morning to residents, emergency
and other service personnel �
and only those four-wheel-drive
vehicles.
Bobby Owens, chairman of
the Da re County Commissioners,
said Hatteras Island has taken a
beating in the storm and hopes
something can be done for the
area's economy.
The weather service said
Tuesday it appeared that the
ocean breached N.C. 12 north of
Buxton, causing ocean water to
pour down the highway. The
breach came where a storm 30
years ago had caused a small in-
let, which was filled in artificially.
The rest of the Outer Banks,
hugged by the western wall of
Emily, seemed to have escaped
the worst of the storm.
The storm blew away roofs,
flooded homes and left cars float-
ing in a bank parking lot. It even
caused emergency management
officials to abandon their office in
Buxton on Hatteras Island.
The historic Cape Hatteras
Lighthouse withstood the 105
mph winds that battered Buxton.
Lt. Commander John La
Brier of the Cape Hatteras Coast
Guard told "ABC Nightline" that
one woman was in stable condi-
tion after breaking her hip.
By 9 p.m. Tuesday, flood
waters had begun to recede in.
Buxton and Hatteras village, al-
though the water was reported to
be 3 to 4 feet deep in a medical
center, which was 3.5 feet above
the ground, the weather service
said. The weather service said 6.13
inches of rain fell at Cape Hatteras
in the six hours ending at 8 p.m.
Three houses at Kitty Hawk
that had been damaged by previ-
ous storms fell into the Atlantic.
Kitty Hawk is located north of
Oregon Inlet.
Official damage surveys, in-
cluding a tour bv Gov. Jim Hunt
and aerial surveys by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, began after daybreak.
Transportation Secretary-
Sam Hunt, Insurance Commis-
sioner Jim Long and state Sen.
Marc Basnight, the Senate presi-
dent pro tern and a Dare County
resident, are also taking part in
the governor's tour.
North Carolina Power was
doing its own damage surveys,
reporting toda y tha 11,000 to 1,500
of its Outer Banks customers lost
power in the storm.
In Dare County, the Cape
Hatteras Water Authority water
treatment plant reported a break
in a six-inch water main. Water
will be available from large por-
table water tanks at the fire de-
partments in Hatteras, Frisco,
Buxton, Avon, Salvo and
Rodanthe.
Ray Sturza, a Dare County
spokesman, said the damage on
Hatteras appeared to be the worst
since Hurricane Donna devas-
tated the area in 1960.
Hyde County Commis-
sioner David Styron, who lives
on Ocracoke, said initial assess-
ment there did not show a great
deal of damage.
"All in all, Ocracoke Island
came through this one pretty
good he said.
He said he hoped electricity
would be restored today, when
ferries resume operations. Resi-
dents, emergency vehicles and
supply trucks will get first prior-
ity.
The Dare County emer-
gency group was meeting this
morning to organize its plans, said
Ray Sturza, a county spokesman.
"Our attention now is be-
ginning to turn to re-entry he
said. "It looks as though the worst
is over for this area
After hugging the North
Carolina coast, Emily turned off-
shore overnight and was located
this morning about 165 miles east
northeast of Virginia Beach, Va.
The warm Gulf Stream wa-
ters helped Emily strengthen to a
Category 3 storm with 115 mph
winds before its glancing blow to
the Outer Banks.
Irene Nolan was ready to
attest to the storm's intensity as
she rode out the storm in her
home in the tiny seaside village
of Frisco.
"The house is shaking ter-
ribly from the wind and waves.
Water is pouring in everywhere,
from cracks in the doors and win-
dows and from the roof Nolan
said from her home.
"Everything under the
house is floating down the
street with the current she said.

But NBC s ronij
vs ith ay I eno' held much of its

holds than ith average 4.6 rating.

tterman uses any shtick from
his 1112 years as host of NBC's
"Late Night
We're pleased that Tom
Brokaw reclaimed some of our in-
tellectual properties last night
cracked NBC spokesman Curt
Block.
He was referring to Monday's
humorous walk-on bv the NBC
anchorman, whosnatched rwocue
cards and left the stage explaining
they were the network's "intellec-
tual property
"If David crosses the line
again Block said, "it might be
necessary for Tom to return. But
we re not taking anv action today
( BS is guaranteeing adver-
tisers a minimum 4.1 rating for
"Late Show" after the inevitable
fall-off in the audience. But when
the late-night scene will stabilize is
anyone's guess.
Next Tuesday, the Fox net-
work unveils "The Chevy Chase
Show which, like "Tonight is
based in Los Angeles. It will air in
most markets at 11 p.m. EDT, get-
ting a 35-minute jump on its talk-
show competitors.
Peace talks resume after progress develops
GENEVA (AP) � An in-
ternational mediator said today
he expected the warring factions
in Bosnia-Herzegovina to agree
on a plan to split the country
into three ethnic states within
days.
"I don't think it can last
much longer because we are ap-
proaching the moment where
it's either you want to have an
agreement now or you don't, so
1 think fairly soon we will have
our final decision said
Thorvald Stoltenberg, the U.N.
envoy.
When pressed on the time
limit, he said, "Days
Pressure is mounting on
Bosnian President Alija
Izetbegovic to sign the peace
package, even though he has
criticized it for rewarding Serb
and Croat aggression and leav-
ing the Muslims with too little
land.
The main sticking point is
eastern Bosnia, where Serbs
made huge gains and forced tens
of thousands of Muslims to flee
the area.
Serb President Slobodan
Milosevic and Bosnian Serb
leader Radovan Karadzic said
thev expected Izetbegovic to ac-
cept the plan today.
The Serbs have already
said thev will sign the deal pro-
posed by the mediators after
year-long negotiations to end
the bitter war.
Croatian President Franjo
Tudjman said Bosnian Croats
had dropped their demands for
changes in the borders on the
proposed maps and were ready
to sign the plan.
Both the Bosnian Serbs and
Croats have said they will not
allow the Muslim-led govern-
ment to make big revisions to
the map proposed last month
that would give Muslims 31 per-
cent of territory, the Serbs 52
percent and Croats 17 percent.
Sarajevo would come under
temporary U.N. administration
and Mostar would be placed
under EC supervision.
Before the war, Muslims
comprised 43 percent of the
population, the Serbs 31 percent
and Croats 17 percent.
"There have been substan-
tive d iscussions on certain parts
of the map said Lord Owen,
the European Community en-
vov, as he arrived for talks to-
dav. "This as always is the ulti-
mate, crucial, clinching issue
During face-to-face talks
Tuesday, Izetbegovic and
Karadzic agreed on a five-point
plan, including the cessation of
hostilities.
They also agreed on pris-
oner exchanges and a telephone
hotline between government
headquarters in Sarajevo and the
Bosnian Serb base in Pale, and
on a joint commission to regu-
late electricity and water. The
agreement has not yet been
signed and is separate from the
peace package.
U.N. Secretary-General
Boutros Boutros-Ghali is to meet
NATO head Manfred Woerner
today to discuss how to imple-
ment the peace deal.
Russian Foreign Minister
Andrei Kozyrev said Tuesday
that Moscow would be willing
to deploy Russian troops as part
of a U.N. operation. President
Clinton said Monday he would
make American troops available
if a settlement was fair and en-
forceable.

Multimedia re-wires
New FCC guidelines impose
additional charges for channels
included in old package
I've never been one for television myself , but
this issue is really irksome. Yesterday, Multimedia
Cablevision took one more tiny step towards com-
plete domination of many local families. That's
right, television�the one-eyed guru of the masses�
claimed another victory.
And the cable companies just make matters
worse. Don't believe it? Go for a day (a single,
solitary day) without turning on the tube. Even if
that turns out successfully, evaluate how you felt
not having the TV on. If you didn't crave it once,
congrats. That's more than a lot of people could
ever do.
But television addiction is not the purpose of
this editorial. People all across eastern North Caro-
lina are getting, shall we say, screwed and most
won't even realize it. As cable rates went up and up
every year, the government passed legislation that
sure did seem like a good idea at the time.
The business world can get awfully slick.
Businesspeople can get slick. And worst of all, the
general public are the ones who end up carrying the
brunt of the raw deal. If you're not careful, people
can take full advantage of a situation. Quite possi-
bly, the cable companies and those businesses affili-
ated with them are doing just that.
Along with basic cable, there is now a system
in effect using creatures called a la carte channels.
In Greenville, these include CNN, Headline News,
TNT and TNN. Thanks to the Cable Consumer Pro-
tection Act of 1992 and the ever-trustworthy legisla-
tors, you, the friendly cable subscriber, will now be
charged an extra $1-2 a piece for these a la carte
channels. You won't be informed of it, but the extra
charges will appear on your next bill.
And just for argument's sake, if you were
receiving these channels as a part of your regular
cable package and never happened to watch any of
them, you will still be charged, simply because you
didn't know. Sounds really fair, huh?
In addition to the sneaky way of billing, for
various reasons, WCTI may disappear from your
basic cable package. Channel 12, based in New
Bern, is currently negotiating with Multimedia for
a share of the profits that so many of you dish out
monthly.
WCTI wants compensation for allowing Mul-
timedia to carry its signal. WCTI is crying that they
must compete with cable stations, so to them, I
suppose it only makes sense that they should re-
ceive a share of the profits.
Well, sorry, that doesn't quite wash.
When you think about it, it's completely fea-
sible that both WNCT and WITN have cut a quiet
deal with Multimedia. After all, this is the business
world and private agreements are what provide
sustanence for the grey-suited wonders we call
businesspeople.
Who would have ever imagined that any of
this were possible back in the first innocent days of
television? The days when families gathered around,
squinting to make out the somewhat distorted im-
ages of Ed Sullivan and Steve Allen, with not a care
in the world.
Now we live in an age of negotiations, regu-
lations, remote control charges, additional outlet
fees, commercials in which the olume levels are
significantly higher than the program's volume
and executives who want just a bit more money.
Oh, yeah, and there's all of that slickness.
It's hard to stomach, but then again, so are
most TV shows. And we haven even begun the
new fall lineup.
Stay tuned for more

Societal ideals for femininity near freakish proportions
Have you ever thought about
pantyhose? I was sitting in class to-
day and I happened to notice that the
womannexttomewaswearingwhite
hose with her very uncomfortaBle-
looking business-type skirt and high
heels. There was a run that extended
from her ankle to her knee. I started
to really think about the concept of
pantyhose. What exactly are they?
Why dowomenwsar them when it's
101 degreesoutside?They areexpen-
sive and they ripwith even theslight-
est hangnail. Furthermore, what is
the deal with high heels? They aren't
comfortable, you can't run in them if
you get chased by monsters or rap-
ists and they arejustdownrightawk-
ward.
Somebody out there is making
a lot of money selling the idea that
highheelsand hose makeyour calves
look smooth and sexy. Smooth and
sexy calves are, as my mother would
say, "a feminine asset" Other such
assets include the ability to apply
make-up and hairstyles that take
hours to fix and cans of hairspray to
hold. My mother now looks at me
and sighs and asks me why I don't
make the most of my assets.
My hair is short, I don't wear
make-upand (call me crazy) I like to
be comfortable. I can wake up and
be ready to face the world in ten
minutes and I consider thatan asset.
I quit buying the lie that women
have to use and contort their bodies
and faces (in fact, hidebehind masks
of lipstick and hair color and
pantyhose) to prove their validity. I
hope mat such qualities as my intel-
ligence, my personality and (oh, yes)
my attempts at dry-wittedness will
provetobe more valuable than those
high heels that I've refused to wear.
If snot all fhateasy toconvince
everyone else mat I'm a person with
internal worth in a world that has
been conditioned to see women as
external. When my mother tells me
that she doesn't understand why,
when I am young and able, that I
don't try to look my best, I can hon-
estly tell her mat it doesn't matter.
There will always be someone out
there to whistle at me and call me
"baby" even when I look (without
make-up, in cut-offs and a t-shirt)
like your 14-year-old brother.
The truth of the matter is that,
even without the hose and heels,
women still get attention drawn to
their bodies and their appearances. I
once passed a man on the sidewalk
when I was out running. I was
soaked with sweat, red faced and
smelly, but this man still looked di-
rectly at my chest and said, "hey,
nice tits At that moment, I decided
that there must be something more
involved here than so-called "flat-
tery I had been enjoying my run,
feeling strong and happy and sud-
denly I was self-conscious, intimi-
dated and angry.
In all fairness to those that
make these comments, I think that
often they don't know why they do
i t. They may have fooled themselves
into thinking that they are being
complimentary. Locked in their
subconsciousnesses, they know that
this is a good way to take away
confidence. It is an abuse of power
and not a great way to get dates.
If you whistle at women and com-
ment on their physical "assets
now you know why you do it and
maybe you'll stop.Ifnot, you can't
say that I didn't warn you.
I'mnottellingwomennotto
wear those hose because, obvi-
ously, you won't be avoiding any-
thing if you do. Maybe instead we
should keep in mind that a high
heel hurtslikehellwhenitstepson
toes and hair spray bums like alco-
hol when it's sprayed in eyes. As
for pantyhose But all violent
notions aside. If s okay to get an-
gry. And if you consider intimida-
tion an insult, if s okay to insult
your intimidator back. I wish now
that I had the guts to counter the
comment from the man who
praised my chest by saying some-
thing like: "Gee, thanks but yours
are nicer. What size bra do you
wear?" No matter what your
mother may have told you, sar-
casm is definitely an asset

College radio
station sounds
restrained
College radio represents the voice of
a campus community. This voice enjoys
freedom from commercial restraint and
can explore genres that may be too risky
for commercial stations to undertake. Our
campus radio station, WZMB, 913 F.M
possesses the diversity that separates col-
lege radio from commercial radio.
However, it seems that ECU wants to
keep WZMB and the college community
separate. Last October, the Media Board
banned WZMB from associating with
events involving alcohol because of liabil-
ity questions. What did this really mean?
Efid this mean thaWZMB could not spon-
sor events held downtown? Could em-
ployees go to bars as "employees of
WZMB" and expect to be fired? If someone
uttered the letters WZMB, would they be
beaten about the head and shoulders?
This action seemed absurd, because
The East Carolinian could go downtown
and review a band or event at a bar with no
consequences. Other campusorganizations
could meet at places with alcoholic bever-
ages. Why not WZMB? Either blame it on
the Federal Communications Commission,
an organization that seems to have the
power to tar and feather the First Amend-
ment, or on liability, but this action was
never justified as far as I am concerned.
Another problem came for WZMB,
when two employees of the station be-
came managers for local bands. There arose
a concern that perhaps the employees were
abusing their jobs at the station with this
extra endeavor. The employees were given
the option to quit one job or the other.
This is not justified. When the WZMB
employees are off-duty, it is none of the
school's business what other jobs they un-
dertake. Does this mean that if I worked at
the Mendenhall Snack Shop and got a sec-
ond job involving vending machines off-
campus, that I would be fired? This also
would mean that everytime an employee
announced a local band's playing engage-
ments or a local band's song, they would
have to get prior permission.
It seems to me that WZMB is not
treated with the same respect that other
stations in the UNC system are treated.
One way to involve WZMB with the
ECU community is to play the station on
the buses in the transit system. It makes
sense to me to play the college radio sta-
tion on the college bus system. As it is now,
the drivers determine what music the pas-
sengers will listen to. By playing the sta-
tion on the buses, students could be more
informed of campus events.
For instance, WXYC, 89.3 FM, the
radio station for UNC-Chapel Hill, began
as an underground station broadcast from
a dorm room in 1976. Today, that station
receives $19,603 a year in funding from the
university. Perhaps tine success of the sta-
tion spawned from enthusiasm that in-
volved the station with the community.
This particular station is known for its
involvement with Chapel Hill bands, the
now-defunct Cat's Cradle club as well as
small pamphlets the station published con-
cerning local events.
If this is what it takes, maybe East
Carolina should start an underground sta-
tion free from bureaucracy and earn re-
spect the way WXYC did�by itself.

In his sarcastic masterpiece, 'Art School Confidential Clowes simultaneously puts
artsy posers in their place and condemns the pretentious nature of Art academia.
By Chris Kemple
Staff Writer
This is pan one of a two-pan interiew
Chicago native Dan Clowes,
writer and artist of the critically-
acclaimed comic book Eightball
began his career seeking an illus-
tration degree at Pratt University.
When acclaim in that field
eluded him, he returned to his life-
long interest in comics by creating
minicomics that featured a charac-
ter named Lloyd Llewellyn. The
character was soon picked up by
Fantagraphics Books in the mid-
'80s, and a six-issue miniseries re-
sulted.
The stories implemented a bril-
liant combination of science-fiction,
comedy, and '50s subculture
retrosnazz" and putClowes on the
proverbial comics map. Now the
quick-witted Clowes works on
Eightball, a series that he began in
1989.
Eightball has won several past
Harvey Awards, and has been
nominated for several Eisner
Awards (the Oscars of the comics
profession).
During the 24th Annual San
Diego Comic Convention, I had the
pleasure of talking at length with
Dan about his career, work and the
comics industry. Dan has also done
illustrations for magazines such as
Blab Cracked, and others, and has
also done several album covers.
Kemple: I'm not really going
to get into your childhood in Chi-
cago and all of that other jazz
Clowes: It's all been said many
times before, yes.
Kemple: Then let's get right
to it Why did you start doing more
"serious" stories once you started
doing Eightball, as opposed to the
straight humor of Lloyd
Llewellyn?
Clowes: Well, you can see in a
lot of those later Llewellyn stories
that I was starting to incorporate a
lot more serious elements, and it
would work in some cases but not
in others. So I figured I needed to
create a whole separate context
for the more serious stuff so I could
do that in one story, then turn
around and do humor stories
Kemple: and doing serious,
dramatic stories was always an
ambition of yours, even way
back?
Clowes: Oh, yes; I like the
humor stuff and did it mainly be-
cause it's the sort of thing I like to
read. But I started to realize that in
other forms of entertainment and
storytelling, like movies, more se-
rious things were being done, and
I wanted to tap into those; I con-
sider myself a serious person, and

Thrift stores please student fashion Don't Run My Life
By Tricia McCrory
Staff Writer
A fairly new but unsung fad
for buying hip clothes and acces-
sories has emerged all across
America.
Authentic polyester bell-bot-
toms, hats (of various shapes and
fabrics), patchwork dresses and
antique jewelry are a few of the
goodies you'll find, if you know
where to look. And, it's not at the
mall.
Thrift and consignment shops
have become the fashion play-
grounds for the retro-conscious
consumer of today's youth. And,
it's "all the rage" on many of
today's college campuses.
Luckily, ECU has a bevy of
unique individuals where diver-
sity is as common as homework.
There is something for everyone,
from the unconventional and
groovy to the more conservative
individual.
Sure, you can probably find
these things at the mall with brand
names, but you would pay mall
prices and miss the pleasure of
rummaging through the piles of
discarded treasures.
By shopping at thrift shops,
you get more than a brand name�
you get a piece of history.
As to be expected, you may
have to dig through a lot of junk
that only your grandma would
wear before that thrill of discov-
ery when you find an article of
clothing you simply must add to
your collection. What could be
more exciting than finding a tie-
dyed shirt that some young man
wore to a peace rally and chanted,
"Make love, not war?
Or imagine discovering a pair
of bell-bottoms donned by a free-
spirited girl as she burned her bra
in protest?
Yes, the refuse of the past has
become the fashion statement of
the '90s. There are various shops
all over Greenville for you to ex-
plore and discover. Dapper Dan's
is conveniently located downtown
near campus, and Pandora's Box
is located near College Towne Row
apartments.
A little further from campus
you can find Grandma's Attic,
Goodwill and the Salvation Army.
So take a walk on the wild
side and experience the nostalgia
of shopping at thrift and consign-
ment shops.
You're sure to find many bar-
gains that you won't be able to
refuse. One person's trash is an-
other person's treasure.
Catherine Wheel: alternative to Alternative
By Quinton Pickup
Staff Writer
One of the summer's best
and most refreshing releases is
from four relatively unknown
Brits, Catherine Wheel.
Their second release
CHROME, illustrates where
college music is going. Due to
the short and incredibly bor-
ing life of Seattle's "grunge"
scene, intelligent listeners have
been forced to look elsewhere
for new and inviting sounds.
The British have always
been music innovators and
push music to new levels con-
sistently and costantly.
Listeners should defir. itely
feel secure with Catherine
Wheel.
Catherine Wheel's first
album, Ferment, was above
average and a fairly strong
release for such a new band.
CHROME goes farther
'The album is full of mass appeal. You could listen to a single track
numerous times and walk away feeling different each time'
with much stronger and more
developed tracks. You can tell
that the band members have
matured as both musicians and
as human beings. This album
spans over many different types
of musical bridges. The third
trackCrank has found its way
on to numerous charts including
metal, pop and college charts.
The hard- edged, dreamlike
sound is very hard to compare to
another band. The closest rela-
tive would probably be Ador-
able.
The members of Catherine
Wheel work well together keep-
ing their sound clean, tight and
very original.
One of the most alluring
things about the album is the lyri-
cal genius. Shallow
is not in this band's
vocabulary. The
lyrics are not spo-
ken or shouted;
they flow. The
voice works as an
instrument with
the band rather
than against it.
The album is
full of mass appeal.
You could listen to
a single track nu-
merous times and
walk away feeling
different each time.
All the tracks are great, whether
you listen to them alone or in the
middle of a party.
This appeal has been hard to
Catherine Wheel
find in recent albums. Hopefully,
this album will get the recogni-
tion it deserves, but not too much,
because that would just spoil it.

A quick listen to Sloppy Sec-
onds tells you where they got their
name; you'll recognize some
sounds from Billy Idol,
Steppenwolf, The Who and The
Ramones.
I'm not talking about sampling;
I'm talking about blatant chord and
riff rip-offs. But despite the famil-
iar sounds, Knock Yer Boots Offde-
livers fast and gritty, fun rock &
roll, and we love that.
Unfortuantely, the music does
sometimes sound ACDC-esque
in its simplicity. A minor distrac-
tion.
These guys are pop culture
mavens. The photo of them h?s
them hangin' out in a room stuffed
with every American icon imagin-
able, from Spider-Man to Traci
Lords. Three cheers for the Red
White and Blue. And to completely
revel in their American non-
iconoclasticism, the Sloppy Sec-
onds fellers have been slapped with
that other popular American flag,
the warning label.
Whoa, Nellie!
My favorite track, "The Mighty
Heroes is a rhymin' little master-
blaster that granges on the heroes
of today's youth and exalts those
righteous characters who are real
heroes, the founders of American
culture: Evel Knievel, Bruce Lee,
Billy Jack, Buford Pusser, Cleopatra
Jones and James Caan in Rollerball
That's America. Enough said.
And there's "Meyer Girl a
haunting reminiscence about love
and adolescence, a la Russ Meyer.
If you don't know who Russ Meyer
is, the song may have less meaning.
And how about a big scary ex-con
who listens to Motley Crue as your
neighborhood Ice Cream Man?
If you like that idea, you'll love
"IceCream Man cause that's what
the tune is about. I scream, you
scream.
"Ejaculation" is an instrumen-
tal. For those who have wondered
what ejaculation would be like in
musical terms,now itcanbe heard.
These songs are about
America and life in America. We've
all experienced the life, now expe-
rience the music.
See SLOPPY page 8
Legalize it, baby! That's what I
say.
Ideas are like butterflies: you've
got to grab hold of them, and stick
them when they sitstilLorelse they'll
get away forever. And let me share
this idea with you: put our senators
and Congress people in dorms. It's
not so nutty.
Butlet'sbacktrackHerewehave
a changing world, countries are col-
lapsing, democracy is replacing
Communism and you 've got to make
a new map every other day.
So, amidst this climate of politi-
cal and socio-economic change, what
happens?Well,theU.Soncea world
leader�now leading the world in
unemployment, violent crime and
national debt�refuses to go with
the flow. We want to perpetuate the
failed two-party system and stick
another party player in the White
House.
Who did we need? Ross Perot.
Yes he has no experience. Yes,
he is a buffoon. Yes, he would run
the country like a business. But it
would be a change. We would be up
there, keeping pace with a changing
world, but nan. There's only one
answer: legalize pot!
So anyway, thank yourself for
the 21 tuition increase if you voted
for Bill Clinton.
You see, tax increases do not
help the economy. No ,sir. If you
can't pay your rent, do you throw all
your money away on beer and then
look for another job to make extra
money? No you don't. You don't
buy beer or food at all: you pay
your rent. In essence, you cut your
spending. You spend your money
wisely, and you're good to go.
Could you imagine if our govern-
ment decreased its spending?
You see, taxes raise the capital
our country needs to operate. So
we pay taxes. Then, our s enators
and Congresspeople decide how
to allocate those funds. It's very
simple. Here's what they do. They
take their cut. Then they pay the
Capitol Hill caterers who feed
them. Then they createboguscom-
mittees on which they serve and
fund and then they divide theother
money amongsocial programs and
civil servants. But hey, there's not
enough left.
So they need more cash, so
they raise taxes, and now it looks
like there's more. But there's not,
because citizens spend less when
taxes increase so businesses make
less so there's not that much more
revenue. But the government acts
like there is so every one of them
gets a raise. So actually, raising
taxes means less money for the
government to waste, but they
waste more.
Ain't politics wonderful!?!?!?
Ok. So what do we do?
First, our senators and Con-
gresspeopleareputindorms. We'll
give them three squares a day�
none of that fancy stuff, just the
food groups, a hot dog bar, Jell-O

CLOWES
Ihavea lot of thoughts whicharen't
in a humorous vein that 1 feel a need
to express. I felt it was time to
broaden my range a bit.
Kemple: Was comics some-
thing you always wanted to do,
since childhood?
Clowes: Oh yeah,
basically before I could
read I wanted to do
comic books. It's all I
ever wanted to do, re-
ally.
Kemple: So is
that why you went to
art school�with the
intention of acquir-
ing skills that would
help you to do com-
ics?
Clowes: YesI
thought I could hook
up with instructors
that could teach me
how to do comics and
illustrative tech-
niques: pen and ink
drawing, coloring and
such.
Kemple: And they wouldn't
do that, because, like most art
schools, they don't see comics as
valid-
Clowes: Right. Most art schools
today don't want to teach you any-
thing really like that. You know,
they're basically just trying to make
some money. They're mostly un-
trained artists who don't teach any
real technical skill, they just want
you to "express yourself" and fol-
low the la test
art trends.
Kemple:
The instruc-
tors let you
sortoffollow
some naive
personal di-
rection in-
stead of
teaching you
a specific
skill and lei-
ting you
choose
Clowes:
Yes.
Kemple:
And is that
what "Art
School Con-
fidential" is
all about?
Clowes: Yeah, I was really bit-
ter. (Laughingly) It took me abotit
five or six years to realize what a
total rip-off it all was, and after I got
out of Pratt, I looked back and saw
that I didn't really gel with any-

and a choice of fried or scrambled
eggs�free local phone service, and
cable TV. We'll pay them $1500 a
month. We'll make 'em honest yet!
You've all heard about the bo-
gus jobs and committees that the
government funds. Axe 'em. I'm
sure you've heard about the bogus
contracts the government buys, too,
like the $125 manual impact fasten-
ing device? No one needs to spend
$125 on a hammer, especially the
U.S. government. A Craftsman 22
oz. hammer from Sears ain't but
$30, and it's guaranteed forever.
But, hey, I voted. I can bitch.
Youshouldcareabout America.
The people we vote for don't. All
our politicians want to do is run our
lives, and you know Icallb.s.onthat!
But hey! What's done is done.
If pot were legalized, the gov-
emmentcould regulateit,slap warn-
ing labels on it, tax it and ride the
profits all the way to a balanced
budget. We get high and The Man
can relax.
But no. The Manhas other things
to smoke: our butts.
How is it, in a recession, when
graduates can't buy a job, that a
university can afford so much beau-
tification? The library, the student
store, the bricks everywhere, this
new recreation center we've been
paying for for years that we'll never
get to use because we'll be gone,
what's up with all this?
body, and that was okay. But you
know, I saw it as a true scam, and
they really didn't teach us anything
of value.
Kemple: But are you against art
schools in general, or are you for
institutions that teach specific prac-
tical and real techniques?
Clowes: Yes, I'm for those. Well,
most schools that do that now go
overboard, and they teach you how
to docomputer graphics or just basic
paste-up and layout and things like
that. But there's a lot of very intricate
things about drawing that no one
else can teach you except for some-
one who's been doing it for 20 years,
as with watercolor techniques, pen
and ink illustration, et cetera. But
nowadays, you're not going to get a
job doing watercolors. So why would
anyone teach you that at one of the
places where they train you? Also, in
a real art school, or I should say a fine
arts school, they're justgoingto teach
you how to do the kind of art that
will sell in galleries, like gluing bro-
ken plates to wood or something,
(laughter) and that's got nothing to
do with drawing skill either. So I'd
need to go back to instructors of the
1920s to really be taught good illus-
tra tion techniques. The best training
I ever got was when I bought those
"Famous Artists" books from the
1950s that would teach you how to
draw, step by step.
Kemple: Like the Andrew
Loomis and Preston Blair
booksthey're great Beats the
hell out of learning to draw
"Cubby" (laughing).
Clowes: (More laughter) Right,
exactly. But they contained amaz-
ing rules for how to draw.
Kemple: So then, in retro-
spect, how does it make you feel
that your comics are so popular in
art schools among the students?
Is there any irony in that for you?
Clowes: Well, I thinkthatsince
they are artstudents thatthey sense
thatsame tension in their own lives,
and I think I can express wheat
they're thinking in a way where
I've had a few years to consider it
and retell it with hindsight while
they're just experiencing it initially.
I also think that a lot of my readers
are fine artists and not just comics
artists, so they're more in tune to
what's being taught in art schools,
and maybe rebelling againstwhat
they're being taught there. So,
they'd respond to it on that level.
Also, comics nowadays are becom-
ing a lot more accepted and I've
actually given talks at art schools
where teachers have called me in,
and that would have never hap-
Tuition is skyrocketing, folks,
and itstartsat the top. Weareenter-
ing an era where the rich will gel

It's over.
Theonly thing we can do is call
in an air strike. It's time for a revo-
lution, baby. If we all got together,
we could storm Washington, lock
our politicians in overcrowded jail,
and erase our national debt in a
weekend! And thenlook, you could
set me on the throne and I promise
you, I'd legalize it.
So burn a flag. If someone tells
you you're un-American, you just
stuff that burning flag in his or her
mouth and say, "Don'trunmylife
Continued from page 7
pened ten years ago.
Kemple: So how do you feel
about the comics industry today,
as an industry and an art form?
Clowes: As an art form, I think
this may be the Golden Age of
comics, in the sense that there are
50-60 of the world's best cartoon-
ists Justin America alone today. As
abusinessitstinksbecause,of those,
maybe only five are making a liv-
ing at it. So it's a sad thing. But the
fact that there's all of these deter-
mined individuals out there that
are doing great work for little mon
etary means is fairly amazing;
there's never been another period
in the history of comics like today.
Kemple: Do you have a prob-
lem of people reading meanings
into your work that aren't there?
For example, you did a story in
your latest issue of Eightball
where someone got the rights to
do a movie version of one of your
most dramatic stories Like a Vel-
vet Glove in Cast Iron, and they
totally took it out of context, mak-
ing it into a science-fiction, action-
adventure. Were people missing
your point that much?
Clowes: No, no. That was re-
ally just my interpretation of how
Hollywood has misinterpreted cer-
tain books, things that I was famil-
iar with before they were made
into films. It was about the conces-
sions Hollywood makes to make
the stories more popular and to
make more money off of them. For
instance, no one could accept that
a strange, militant girl could exist,
so they had to turn her into a space
alienbut, urn, what was I going
to say?
Kemple: Do people attach
meaning to your work that you
don't intend?
Clowes: Oh, yesone of the
waysl try to write is thatl try using
ideas that come into my head on a
subconscious level, things that I'm
incredibly driven to draw but I
don't know why they have such
meaning to me. It's just like my
subconscious out on paper; there's
all kinds of significance there if
people really want to try and fig-
ure it out, it's just that there's no
conscious meaning on my part.
It's just coming out of my deep,
dark psyche.

IH BRISTOL, Maine
�: 1 racy Kidder re-
enl a year observing in a
nursing home.
it provided the material
for hi new book, Old Friends, a
story about aging in America.
1 he book is built upon a
series ot poignant interludes in-
volving the residents of Linda
Manor, the nursing home in
Northhampton, Mass not far
from where Kidder has his year-
round home. Much of the dia-
logue involves Lou and Joe, room-
mates whose blossoming friend-
ship is the story's central theme.
Turning theseeventsinto
a cohesive narrative was one of
his major challenges, the author
said in an interview at his sum-
mer home along the Maine coast.
"Not a lot happens, and
vet 1 think when you read it you
feel that a lot does. Small things
have to count for a great deal he
said.
Kidder, 47, won the
Pulitzer Prize in 1981 for The Soul
of a Nezo Machine, an account of
how Data General developed a
new computer. Then came House,
which revealed the dynamics
among architect, builder and
home buyer, and Among SchooT
childrcn, which brought to life the
remarkable work of a classroom
teacher.
Richard Todd, Kidder's
longtime editor dating back to
their work on the Atlantic
Monthly, provided the impetus
to explore the aging of America
through the eyes of nursing home
residents.
Old Friends does not pur-
port to be a comprehensive study
of aging, and the author does not
attempt to lay out policy recom-
mendations or strategies for
change. He simply tries to tell a
story, particularly that of the
friendship of roommates Lou and
Joe.
"1 wanted to write about
what it's like to be old, more or
less from the inside � what it's
iiketobeoldand infirm and to be
confined to an institution he
said.
Kidder visited se ?ral
nursing homes before settling on
Linda Manor. There, virtually ev-
eryone directed him to Lou and
Joe, whose relationship and ap-
proach to adversity the author
found extraordinary, and inspir-
ing.
Reflecting on how he
would bear up to living in a nurs-
ing home, Kidder said, "When I
was with them, I felt that I could
stand this, if I had a friend
As he did in his book on
education, Kidder skirts the
broad public policy issues, pre-
ferring to make his points indi-
rectly, through details and dia-
logue.
The nursing home book
was not intended to complement
the book about school, but Kid-
der said education and long-term
care for the elderly face similar
struggles to overcome a lack of
adequate funding.
Old Friends isn't directed
toward any particular audience,
Kidder said, although giving the
book to an elderly person "might
suggest something, and it might
be an awkward thing to do

What the hell am I gonna do?
As I lean back in this recliner,
staring at the pockmarked ceiling in
my dingy office, I ask myself that
question over and over. I'd gone
searching for the truth behind my
old friend Al and I'd sure gotten it.
The problem was, do I want Al to
have a place in my life after this case
is over? Sometimes I wish I'd never
taken this case. How could I refuse
that kid, though?
I remember when he walked in
my door. He'd been drenched from
head to foot, just like all those other
sorry stiffs that had been stupid
enough to get caught in one of
Beersborough's infamous down-
pours. Of course, these rains kept the
"criminal element as I like to call it,
in their burrows and away from
trouble. Everyone knows the effect
of a watered-down drink, right?
The kid just stood there, drip-
ping small puddles on the cigarette-
scarred linoleum. He looked like any
other college kid I'd come across in
my line of work � someone who
wasn't quite sure where he was go-
ing, but he sure as hell was getting
there in a hurry.
"So what can I do for you, kid?"
I leaned back and put my feet up,
lighting a cigarette from the butt of
my old one.
He reached into his jacket for an
answer. I unconsciously tensed, wait-
ing to see if he would pull a piece,
but ail he pulled was a photo.
As he tossed it on my littered
desk and it slid to a stop in front of
me, it hit me like a sledgehammer.
Without even realizing it, I had
popped my feet down, causing the
worn chair to creak ominously, and
was staring intently at the last face I
would ever thought of seeing.
It was Al. Al to his friends, A.C.
to his enemies and any number of
other names to those poor shmucks
whose life he passed through like
the sour breath of a cheap wino.
He'd covered my back in too many
bars and speak-easies for me to for-
get that face. As I was lost in memo-
ries of better years, the kid said his
first words to me, blowing me out of
the water.
"He's my father

A place where dreams arc made and unmade, lives are turned upside
down and a drink is a drink. A place where you kept one hand on your wallet

sorrows for a while.
Mick Hammered had sworn never to set foot
in the Brewery again. Setting out to find his old
friend Al Cohol, Mick finds himself up to his neck

CAROLINIAN
I tried to hide the surprise I felt.
Al, a father? He'd never mentioned
any son to me. Then again, he and I
didn't really do too much talking.
Just a whole lot of fighting and a
whole lot of drinking.
I'd always wondered what had
happened to him � one day, he just
stopped coming to Burt's. Now
maybe I might be able to cure that
hole in my stomach and find out.
I tossed the picture back on the
desk and leaned back in my chair,
trying to regain the edge I'd had
over the kid. "So why come see me,
kid? What do I have that any other
private dick in this city doesn't?"
"No special reason. I just picked
your name out of the phone book
The kid stopped and seemed to chew
on some piece of information he
wasn't sure he should tell me.
"I also heard you had some spe-
cial dealings in the place I think he
is I was getting that sinking feeling
in my stomach again when my gut
knew I wasn't going to like what I
would hear.
"It's the Brewery
The Brewery. I swore I'd never
step foot in that place again. After I
lost my partner there, I'd given up
on that side of town. But now it
seemed like I'd be making another
trip � a trip to a place I'd rather not
remember.
"All right, kid. What do you
want me to do? And make it quick,
I've got business I knew I was be-
ing short with him, but just thinking
about the Brewery had left a sour
taste in my mouth.
"Find him. Find all you can
about him. Before I talk to him, I
want to know what kind of a guy he
is. I don't have much money, but I
can pay you what I can
"We'll talk about it later, kid.
Get out of here and let me do what I
do best I pushed him out the door
and sent him on his way.
As I grabbed my trenchcoat, my
fedora and my .38,1 was surprised to
find a grin on my face. Guess the
hunter never forgets the smell of the
prey or the thrill of the chase.
A shot rang out.
A woman screamed.
Here we go again, I thought.

"It ls with great pleasure that

said Craig Souza, the chairman of
the Hall of Fame selection commit-

Christenbury, a native of
Statesville, N.C and a 1930 gradu-
ate of Davidson College, served as
head coach of the East Carolina
Teachers College football, baseball,
and basketball teams from 1940-
1941.
In 1 M40,Chnstenbury led ECTC
to its first winning fixttball season
with a 5-3 record. In 1941, the Teach-
ers, under Christenbury, recorded
the only undefeateduntied foot-
ball season in the school's history,
going 7-0. No ECU team has
matched that in the 57 years of foot-
ball.
World War H forced ECTC not
to field athletic teams from 1942-45
as most of the men had gone into the
service. Christenbury, a United
StatesNavy Lieutenant, wasamonq;
those who enlisted, and in 1944 he
was killed in an ammunition ship
explosion.
Following his death,
Christenburv was honored with the
naming of ECU's old gymnasium

McPhail happy to dock
in Ficklen Stadium
By Misha Zonn
Staff Writer
A change of location can make
all the difference in the world when
things are not going perfectly in the
early stages of a fragile, young foot-
ball career. In the case of Jerris
McPhail, the choice of location is
now East Carolina, not Wake For-
est University. McPhail, the Buc's
starting halfback, believes that his
transfer was definitely a step in the
right direction.
McPhail rushed for over 1,500
yards and 34 touchdowns as a se-
nior at Clinton High School. He
then made the move into the ACC
as he started his college football
career as a Demon Deacon How-
ever, the football atmosphere was
lacking at the basketball-rich uni-
versity and McPhail decided to test
his options. McPhail said the fan
support for the football team at
ECU was one of the main factors in
his decision to make the switch.
"The main reason for leaving
was the atmosphere around Wake
Forest McPhail said. "I really
didn't fit in there and I wanted to
get a little closer to home. I also
wanted to play in the offensive
scheme of ECU. I think that at East
Carolina, the fans get into it more.
At Wake Forest, the fans were kind
of dead. They don't support the
football team as much as they do
the basketball team. I think that the
whole atmosphere of football is a
lot better here at East Carolina
McPhail immediately im-
pressed Pirate fans with a strong
showing in the annual purple-gold
scrimmage with a touchdown and
a two- point conversion.
McPhail has found his rebirth
at ECU to be positive, despite the
challenge of learning a new, more
expansive offense.
"East Carolina's offense is a
whole lot more complicated
McPhail said. "Wake Forest was
more of the basic type offense. At
Wake, the H-back would normally
catch passes, but here at ECU they
areblockmg,runnmgandcatrJiing
the ball. For my ability, I think that
I fit in better here. I like to catch the
ball and I also like to run the ball,
and block if I have to
Even though it will only be
McPhail's first season with the Pi-
rates, he already has an idea of
where he belongs in the offensive
attack.
"I'm going to do my best and
try and fit in where Cedric Van
Buren left off,likein the third down
situations McPhail said. "I feel
that I can come out of the back field
and make the big catch if neces-
sary
The presence of 1,000 yard
rusher Junior Smith in the back
field doesn't seem to bother
McPhail at all. He doesn't look at
thesituationasbeing overly com-
petitive.
"There is reallynotthatmuch
tension because I learn from
Smith and he sometimes learns
from me McPhail said. "When-
ever I need some questions an-
swered, he will help me out. I
think that it will work out fine. I
don't get out there and try and
compete against anybody. I just
try and give my all, and so it
really doesn't matter who else is
out there with me
McPhail's first game as a Pi-
rate just happens to be against
nationalpowerhouseSyracuseon
ESPN.
"There is a little tension be-
cause it's onnational television
McPhail said. "I'm more excited
than anything else. I'm going to
get my first college football game
on national T. V. against a highly
ranked team, so that might kind
of affect the way I go out and
play
After a year of sitting out,
McPhail seems happy to be play-
ing football again He also seems
excited about doing it wearing
the purple and gold of ECU in-
stead of the black and gold of
Wake Forest.

The sixth annual "King of the

took place yesterday afternoon at
the bottom of College Hill. The
event was forced to move from the
top of The Hill to the bottom be-
cause of the construction of Todd

The competition included
some unusual games such as the

"The point of the competi-

The East Carolinian 13
Guns banned from golf
course in Lexington
rhis week, the Lexington ity
council will consider an ordi-
nance which would prohibit car-
rying firearms on city property
after a man pulled a loaded
weapon out of his goli bag on a
local course.
Last May, according to au-
thorities, a man who was angry
that other golfers had hit a ball
into his group pulled out a loaded
pistol from his bag and threat-
ened them. No one was hurt, but
the shaken golfers told Lexing-
ton Municipal Golf Course pro
Tommy Byrd to call the police.
The unidentified man was
later convicted of carrying a con-
cealed weapon. He was also
banned from the golf course for a
year.
The city council will consider
the ordinance at a planning meet-
ing on Monday. A violation
would be a misdemeanor and
fine and a
da jail sentence.
Foster, a Lexington
ilman, said that the ordi-
nance may be expanded to pro-
hibit weapons from such events
as the Barbecue Festival, which is
held on closed citv streets. "We
haven't come up with anything
definite yet he told the VVin-
Ston-Salem Journal Thursday.
Like Byrd, Foster was
shocked by the incident at the
golf course. "Who would ever
think someone playing golf
would have a pistol in their bag?"
he said.
Apparently, not many
people.
Byrd said he has called sev-
eral area golf courses to see if
thev had a weapons policy. None
did.
Byrd says he now thinks that
all golf courses should have a
gun policy, and he has advised
his colleagues to look into the
issue.
"There is a chance he said.
"You've got to be prepared
Davis, Laettner together again
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) �
Former Duke forward Brian Davis
liked the fancy European house,
flashy sports car and lots of money
playing in France.
But Davis, who won a pair of
national titles with the Blue Devils,
felt unchallenged. His team in
France was 11-0 but played only
once a week in a European basket-
ball league.
"I thought I was getting worse
instead of getting better Da vis said
of his recent experience there.
"That's not a knock against Euro-
pean basketball, but for me, I guess
I was too intense.
They are laid back over there
and that really hurts your game
said Davis, who has added 10
pounds of muscle to his 6-foot-7,
195-pound frame. "I didn't want to
be in that situation. I practiced
three days a week by myself twice a
day
The defensive specialist gave
up his European life three weeks
ago tosigna two-year contractwith
the Minnesota Timberwolves, one
of the league's worst teams. Davis
will be playing with former Duke
teammate Christian Laettner.
The pair was in Cameron In-
door Stadium on Tuesday to pro-
mote an October exhibition game
with the New Jersey Nets in late
October.
Davis was drafted in the sec-
ond round in 192 by the Phoenix
Suns, but his chance to make the
talented team was doomed from
the start. He was battling for a posi-
tion behind such players as former
slam-dunk champion Cedric
Ceballos, Richard Dumas and all-
star Dan Majerle.
"I knew I wasn't going to make
the team Davis said. "I tried to

admission seating will be allowed
into the park first.
There's less than a 50 per-
cent chance that you're going to
get in Mangum said.
The final season at the park
has been full of nostalgia. Former
Bulls player Joe Morgan � the
team's only Hall of Famer � re-
turned to get his jersey retired.
This week, some members of the
movie's cast and crew were hon-
ored.
"It's kind of like when you
think about the emotions that go
behind home and family � it's
just like a big family reunion
Mangum said. "Everybody goes
back and gathers around to see
people they haven't seen in a long
time and that's part of the cycle of
their life.
"But that doesn't mean they
want to stay at the reunion for the
rest of their lives. Mavbe the old
home place is falling down.
Maybe everybody going to the
old home place knows it might
be their last trip.
They make that trip and
then they are ready to get on
with the reality of life. That's
kind of what's going on here.
People are paying homage to
this grand old lady
Mangum said nothing spe-
cial is planned for the final
game, just a few clowns, jug-
glers and musicians roaming
the crowd.
"We've done so much spe-
cial that the last game is almost
anticlimactic he said.
Maybe a few tears might be
shed by baseball fans seeing yet
another icon of the game's past
gobbled up by the future.
"Anytime you leave an old
friend, there is going to be plenty
of emotions Hopkins said.
Fogler facing off with Smith
CHARLOTTE (AP) � Because
their relationship is special, Eddie
Fogler says he'd just as soon avoid
coaching against either Dean Smith
or Roy Williams.
Fogler played forSmithatNorth
Carolina in the mid-1960s, then De-
came an assistant coach before mov-
ing on to jobs at Wichita State and
Vanderbilt. He's now the head coach
at South Carolina, and the Game-
cocks will join the Tar Heels, George
Washington and Brigham Young in
this December's Tournament of
Champions in Charlotte.
South Carolina will play
Brigham Young and North Carolina
meets George Washington in the
first round on Dec. 3. The winners
and losers from those games play
each other on Dec. 4.
Smith and Fogler appeared to-
gether at a news conference Mon-
day promoting the tournament. It
was evident that the thought of
coaching against his mentor didn't
appeal to Fogler.
"It's more than friendship he
said. "I've got friends in coaching,
but that man over there is a lot more
than a friend. He's so much more
than that
After Fogler moved on, Will-
iams would be the next North Caro-
lina assistant to get a head coaching
job. He worked for Smith before he

DAVIS
After spending tour months in
Europe, Davis played in a
Timberwolves summer camp,
shooting 62 percent from the field
in three games.
He was slated for tryouts with
the Charlotte Hornets and the Dal-
las Mavericks, but Minnesota, seek-
ing winning attitudes as well as
good plavers with versatility, didn't
want to let Davis get away. They
signed him.
"He just needs to keep work-

I worked on my ball handling
a lot but you only need it when you
get a rebound and go coast-to-
coast Davis said. "Whenyou have
a great point guard like Michael
Williams, you don't handle the ball
a lot.

shots every day said Davis. "If I

Shaq attends 13ig Man Camp'

thought Shaquille O'Neal was
awesome his rookie year, wait till
you see him next season.
"He could be downright ter-
rifying Pete Newell said after
working with the 7-foot-l Or-
lando Magic center at Newell's
"Big Man Camp
"There's no comparison to his
first year when he was at this
camp Newell said. "He can be
as good � or great, in his case �
as he wants to be, and my guess is
he's going to be one of the great-
est players ever to play the game
Even after finishing his rookie
campaign with a 23.3 point and
13.8 rebound average, O'Neal in-
sisted on a repeat attendance at
the former Cal coach's week-long
camp for centers and forwards.
"I wanted to be here said
O'Neal. "He's the best teacher
there is. And I know I'm going to
improve working under him. He
takes a common sense approach
to playing the big man's game
Danny Manning of the Los
Angeles Clippers agreed with
O'Neal's assessment of Newell.
"This is my fourth year com-
ing to the camp and I only get
better because he takes the time
and works on your fundamen-
tals Manning said.
What did O'Neal work on at
Newell's camp this year?
"Watch for a spin move next
year Newell said. "It's a logical
move for him because defenses
are trying to move him out
O'Neal repeatedly has been
working on his foot work to be
faster and more explosive to the
basket.
"He understands that those
two things are the keys to a center
getting good shots in countering
defenses Newell said.
The 73-year-old Newell � a
Hall of Fame coach who won an
NCAA championship, an NIT
title and an Olympic gold medal
for the United States � said it's a
pleasure to teach players willing
to work so hard during the off-
season.
Told that he was the perfect
man to coach such a collection of
talent, Newell made it clear he
wasn't coaching anyone.
"I was a coach, now I'm a
teacher he said.

In the 1991 NCAA finals at In-
dianapolis, Kansas knocked off
North Carolina before losing to Duke
in the championship game. Last
April, the Tar Heels beat the
Jayhawks en route to the title at New
Orleans. Fogler knew neither man

for long.
"When Roy won the first time, I

Instead, Smith would rather talk
about Fogler's efforts to lift South
Carolina's flagging fortunes in the
Southeastern Conference.

Fans mourn loss of
Durham Athletic Park
at historic Durham Athh
Walk into the ball vard built
in 1939 and it's as it time stood
still.
For the true baseball tan, tak-
ing a seat behind home plate can
send chills down your spine and
make hairs on your arm stand at
attention, considering you're close
enough to call balls and strikes.
You can hear your own cheers
and jeers. The overhanging roof
and an outfield framed by old
warehouses in a city once re-
nowned for its cigarette manufac-
turing produce an acoustic rico-
chet that makes 5,000 fans sound
like 50,000.
It's baseball the way it was
meant to be. No AstroTurf here.
But Durham Athletic Park will
close its doors to minor league
baseball on Sept. 4 � and end a
part of baseball history. A new
multi-million dollar complex with
upgraded facilities and more seat-
ing is being built about a mile
away.
The old park was made fa-
mous nationally in the late 1980s
by the baseball comedy movie
"Bull Durham but it's been a
special place along Tobacco Road
for decades.
"I don't know if the people
who built that place 50 some years
ago could've envisioned all the
good times that were had there
said Carolina League president
John Hopkins. "Durham is
unique. There's a certain magic
that's in the air there
Al Mangum, the team's gen-
eral manager, said the area's blend
of people complements the park,
creating an atmosphere he believes
is second to none in the game.
"On any given night, you can
go out there and you'll see people
with Ph.Ds who are advanced
chemists at Research Triangle Park
ghly renowned authors
and re- � from Duke Uni-
� guys that worked in die
tobacco fields that afternoon and
arc here tor the ball game
The Class A club has had its
�-hare of good teams, but that's not
what attracts more than 300,000 a
yedr to the park, more than most
Double AA and Triple AAA teams
draw. The Bulls are tied for last
place this season.
"We were behind 8-1 theother
night and we got a little rally go-
ing, got a couple of singles, and
the place went wild. Now you
don't find that in Pittsburgh
Mangum said.
Mangum also has noticed a
racial mixture.
"A lot has been written about
blacks not coming to ball games
anymore. Well, they come here
After the movie in 1988,
Durham souvenir sales became
the best in baseball.
"I'm from Massachusetts and
every time I go home I wear my
Durham Bulls T-shirt said one
fan who drove from Raleigh the
othr day to try to land some scarce
rickets, but first stopped to gaze at
the field. "One of my friends of-
fered me $50 bucks for it and I
said, 'No way
The team's commemorative
program even displays a photo of
President Clinton playing golf in
a Bulls cap.
Ticket requests for the final
Saturday afternoon game have
come from California, Colorado,
Florida and New York, just to
name a few states.
Team officials are discourag-
ing out-of-state fans from travel-
ing here for the final weekend se-
ries against Kinston if they don't
already hold tickets. Box and re-
served seats were sold out before
the season began and fans who
bought book tickets for general
