Students robbed at gun point on campus
By Maureen Rich
Assistant News Editor
Late-night walks through
campus have resulted in one
armed robbery and one at-
tempted armed robbery of ECU
students within three days, and
ECU police are warning students
to use common sense to prevent
further attacks.
Last Wednesday night, at
approximately 2:50 a.m two
Belk Hall residents were con-
fronted by two males in the park-
ing lot of Chico's restaurant on
Cotanche Street, according to
police reports. The assailants fol-
lowed the individuals onto cam-
pus, engaging in casual conver-
The four walked together
until they reached the secluded
area between Flanagan and Stu-
dentHealth Services. Atthattime,
the suspects drew two weapons,
identified by the victims as one
semi-automatic handgun and an-
other handgun of some type. Both
victims were ordered to lie on the
While neither of the victims
carried a wallet, both wore ex-
pensive gold chains which were
taken by the assailants. The vic-
tims estimated the jewelry to be
worth $1,000.
Tne suspects warned the
victims that if they got up, they
would be shot. The suspects then
fled on foot, and the victims re-
turned to Belk Hall, where they
contacted ECU police.
Both assailants in this inci-
dent were described as black
males, in their early 20s. The vic-
tims described suspect number
one as approximately 6'1 220
lbs with very short black hair, a
stocky build and a thin mustache.
The victims said suspect number
one has a deep voice and a me-
dium complexion. This indi-
vidual wore a tan, three-quarter
length jacket and boots.
Suspect number two was
described as approximately 5'6
165 lbs stocky build, no facial
hair and a lso with very short hair.
He wore a black stocking-cap
with white markings, a white
warm-up jacket with red and blue
sleeves and dark pants.
The second assault took
place Saturday night, Sept. 16, at
about 3:05 a.m. behind the Rawl
Annex, south of the General
Classroom Building. According
to police reports, two black males
grabbed an Aycock resident
walking by himself and pulled
him behind Rawl.
The assailants then hit the
victim's head against the wall and
proceeded to punch him in the
chest, arms and side .
The victim told the suspects
he did not have any money, but
they demanded his wallet. The
victim opened his empty wallet,
at which time the suspects
reached into their jackets as if
they had guns, and ordered the
victim to the ground. The sus-
pects then fled on foot.
In this attack both assail-
ants were described as black
males in their 20's. Suspect num-
ber one is about six feet tall, 200
lbs with short black hair. He
wore a white cap, a black, heavy,
down coat, black baggy pants,
and black army-style boots.
Suspect number two wore
the exact same attire, but without
a hat. He was described as 5'6
and 180 lbs.
"We strongly suggest that
individuals don't walk by them-
selves at such a late time said
ECU Crime Prevention Officer
Keith Knox. "If they have to get
somewhere, we prefer them to
use good common sense and call
someone for an escort
ECU police will provide a
security escort for any individual,
male or femab, Knox said. He
reminded students to use the
blue-light emergency phones,
found at various locations across
campus, if they are approached,
or even if someone is acting sus-
"These individuals come
out of nowhere Knox said.
"We suggest walking in groups
of three or more and don't
take unnecessary chances.
"If someone asks for
money or property, cooperate
with them fully, because noth-
ing is worth your life. Get to a
safe area as soon as it is safe to
do so, and report the attack to
either ECU police if it's on-cam-
pus or Greenville police if it's
"I recommend that stu-
dents don't wear flashy, expen-
sive jewelry Knox said, but
he reminded students that, as
in the second assault, anyone
can be attacked.

"In my 10 years in the Gen-

"What a great effort by stu-
dents and faculty said Helen
Monroe, Blood Services Con-
sultant for the American Red
Cross. "Thanks for caring and
sharing the 'Gift of Life
Each of you who donated
helped exceed the Red Cross'
goal of 200 units. A total of 275
units of blood was collected.
"This was a tremendous
help toward our collection goal

contend that they have the author
ity to appropriate funds during this
time, while precedent dictates that
money is only spent over the sum-
mer in emergency situations.
The SGA approved the
spending of about $15,000. The
most controversial appropriation
was that of $280 for three members
of the Executive Council to pur-
chase parking stickers.
The president already re-
ceives a parkingsticker, but whether
or not the other three members also
need them in order to do work for
the president and attend meetings
throughout campus is currently
under debate.
The class of 1993 donated
$5,000 for the clock that is now
standing outside the Graham

granted $1,600 for six members of
the Panhellenic Council to fly to
Orlando and $330 to the Inter-
Fraternitv Council for rush adver-
In addition to $700 for politi-
cal science speakers and $280 for
booklets outlining the Honor Re-
view Board, several other projects
were funded.
The total budget for the 1993-
94 school year is $224,000 minus
the $124,000 in annual appropria-
tions and $15,000 that were appro-
priated over the summer. The SGA
has extra funding this year due to
the $2 increase in student fees.

Though he faces no oppo-
nent in the November 2 state-
wide election, CD. Spangler, Jr.
is in serious danger of losing.
And if Spangler loses this battle,
nearly everyone agrees that ECU
loses as well.
Spangler, the president of
the 16 campuses of the Univer-
sity of North Carolina, spoke to
the ECU Board of Trustees on
Friday in support of the univer-
sity improvement bond that goes
before the voters next month.
Two projects in the $310 million
UNC bond referendum are the
expansion and renovation of
Joyner Library at $28.9 million
and the acquisition of the former
Rose High School property at $5
Accompanying Spangler
was Thomas Storrs of Charlotte.
The former head of NCNB, now
NationsBank Corporation, Storrs
is coordinating the statewide
campaign to secure passage of
the bond package. Both men
urged the Trustees and especially
the Chancellor to redouble their
efforts in fighting for the bonds.
"We have only 17 days left
to get this bond issue passed on
November 2. There is nobody left
on the face of the earth who
doesn't understand this must be
completed Spangler said.
Spangler blamed the reces-
sion of the late 1980s for having
to raise money through the
bond process for the univer-
sity system. At the same time,
he credited the General Assem-
bly for allowing the referen-
dum, which passed both
houses with only one dissent-
ing vote.
Whether or not the bond
passes depends largely on
people connected with the uni-
versity turning out a t the polls.
"We have the task of get-
ting the university family out
to vote. Probably one million
people would wake up today
and say they are friends of the
Storrs was more dramatic
in tone, defining his campaign
in military terms. "This is a
battle fought on 16 campuses
around the state. On those cam-
puses the field leaders will be
the chancellors he said.
Storrs said the chancel-
lors faced two challenges. "First
we have to let people know
what the facts are. Then we
have to get people who favor
us to go out and vote
Several things are work-
ing in the university's favor,
including a lack of organized
opposition and an "unforeseen
talent in the political field" on
the part of the chancellors,
Storrs said. The only disadvan-
tage he mentioned was a lack
of interesting political races

Fraternity president arrested at FSU
State University police arrested the president of a
th obstruction of a police officer's
irges were filed in late September
against John Patrick Morris ol Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity
for refusing to cooperate with police officers. Police converged
on the fraternity house in the early hours of Sept 2r to investi-
gate rumors ot underage drinking. After entering, a male partv-
goer interrupted the officers as they attempted to cite a female
student for underage drinking, officials said. The male was told
to leave the house by officers. When police checked the party-
goer's name later, thev found a criminal record with three
outstanding warrants against him. When they questioned Morris,
he told officers he knew where the man lived, but refused to give
them the address. Morris was jailed and released on bond.
Students board train for class
For professor Bob Anzenberger's marketing class, the morn-
ing lecture became a moving experience aboard a morning
commuter train. This marketing class, offered through Dean
Community College, in Franklin, Mass has taken high-speed
education to the rails. The class is taught three times a week
aboard a one-hour train ride into Boston. Anzenberger uses a
microphone to make himself heard and uses visual aides and
handouts to compensate for the noisy, bumpy ride. He even has
to stop his lecture every few minutes as the train conductor
announces the name of the stops. Anzenberger said the students
are highly motivated and the only delays have been at the
terminals when other riders get off or on the train. The class was
designed to help students who want to continue their education,
but have limited time.
College gets gift � 100 years later
Gettysburg College recently received the biggest single
gift in its history � $3.5 million � from a trust fund established
by an 1893 graduate. Merle Stauffer Boyer's will stipulated that
the college ultimately would receive all proceeds from a trust
established to benefit his two children, Kathrvn and Donald,
during their lifetimes. Boyer, a physician in Philadelphia, died in
1941. Kathryn died in 1979, and Donald died in 1993. They left no
heirs, so the trust was dissolved and the proceeds were given to
Gettysburg College. "What makes the Merle Boyer gift so special
is that students who will make their mark on the world of the 21st
century will have as their benefactor a graduate from the 19th
century said college president Gordon Haaland.

Chapel Hill HS bans books
� Chapel Hill High School is sus-
pending a literature class review
of books by gay and lesbian writ-
ers because the contents of some
of the recommended works were
sexually explicit.
The move by Principal
Charles Pa tteson came after a par-
ent distributed to school officials
photocopied excerpts from sev-
eral recommended books that de-
scribe gays and lesbians having
"It's not even appropriate
for me to read it said Ruth
Royster, a school board member.
"I'm very disappointed that this
reading list has been provided to
our students
Some of the books are ap-
propriatebut the ones in question
are not, Royster said.
Limericks included in "The
Gay Fireside Companion" de-
scribe men having erections, en-
gaging in sodomy, ejaculating,
masturbating and having sex with
young boys.
The books are not required
reading but are part of a list in the
multicultural literature project to
give students a starring point to
choose authors they are studying.
The students read books by au-
thors who are gay or lesbian, femi -
rust, Indian, black, Jewish Ameri-
can, Hispanic American or Asian
The course will be sus-
pended today, Patteson told The
Herald-Sun of Durham. Patteson
said the unit taught by openly gay
teacher David Bruton won't be
included in the curriculum until a
committee the principal appoints
determines whether the reading
list is appropriate.
Parent Vickie Seng supplied
the copied passages after object-
ing to four books.
Mary Bushnell, chairwoman
of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board
of Education, and board member

The service will broadcast
from a studio in the Brody build-
ing of ECU campus. The trans-
mission will reach 10 counties in
eastern N.C. and can be picked up
by special radio receivers pro-
vided free of charge by Services
for the Blind.
"Getting what you cannot

Ernest Phelps, ENC RRS coordi-
nator, describes the service.
Volunteers will read a wide
variety of local news including
advertisements, obituaries, reci-
pes and even Dear Abby. Cur-
rently, national news (Neiv York
Times, Newsweek and etc.) is of-
fered 24 hours a day. Until now,
local news hasheenunavailable.
The service works com-
pleted through volunteer ef-
forts, with the exception of one
paid employee. Auditions are
being held to recruit volunteer
readers. The broadcasters will
begin programming by reading
live from The Daily Reflector for
about an hour in the morning,
the shows will bebroadcastagain
later each day.

Over $25,000 has been
raised throughout the area in

United Way, Burrough's
Wellcome, the Pitt County Com-

other professionals have all
helped to support the ENC RRS.
Money is presently being sought
not only for the purchase of ra-
dio receivers, but also for the
production costs.

The reason the General As-
sembly is using bonds to fund the
universities and other projects is
economics. Because interest rates
are low, and North Carolina has a
favorable bond rating, Fitch said
issuing bonds is preferable to ap-
propriating the funds outright.
Fitch praised the younger
generation and especially theCol-
lege Democrats. "I'm excited
about the way this organization
is leading the way on campus. I
differ from a lot of folks my age

eral hundred dollars worth of
prizes on Friday.
"They're winnable. You've

he tried. He picked up six big

bottles he knocked down is con-

But Woodson said it was
tips provided by the game op-
erators that helped him win.
At the bottle toss, carny Bill
Bradley told Woodson most
prizes are won by young people
because their throws are more
level than throws by taller adults.
Woodson, who stands 6-
foot-3, said, "So i threw almost
sidearm so I was almost even
At the basket throw, a carny
told Woodson that softballs
would fly out unless they first
hit the basket near the rim. After
three tries, Woodson won a
stuffed dog.
Woodson also won prizes
throwing balls at beer bottles and
plastic plates � games in which
someone with an accurate throw
would have an advantage.
He also picked up a 3-foot
purple-and-white stuffed mouse
after lofting a softball on his sec-
ond try into a milk can 5 feet
"I can't believe it
Woodson said. He's played
games at fairs, carnivals and
amusement parks for years, "but
all I ever won was that measly
little stuff
Woodson lost at a pool
game, failing to sink four balls.
He was unable to pick up a beer
bottle with a ring suspended
from a stick, and he lost at a
second bushel-basket toss.
Odds aren't good of taking
home a prize from most games.
The ring toss has been a
midway staple for decades. Play-
ers pay a dime for small plastic
rings, which they aim for the
necks of hundreds of pop bottles
standing upright on the ground.
There is only one winner
out of every 1,000 rings thrown,
said John Willis, a game opera-
Willis said the game doesn't
generate as much profit as it
might seem.
For every $100 in revenue,
half goes for barkers and mid-
way rent. Additional costs of
transportation and insurance
leave operators a $15 profit,
Willis said.
He said players can win by
skipping the rings across bottle
tops, instead of aiming for a par-
ticular bottle. "Kids win more
because they're closer than
adults to the playing surface
Willis said.
Bellamy said he knows
enough about the midway's odds
to skip the games.
"That's why I spend my
money on the rides when I come

overwhelming turnout so that
these bonds and the future of this
state continue to move forward
instead of standing still
In an interview held earlier
with The East Carolinian, Fitch said
he is still undecided about run-
ning for Congress. "We're still
looking If we were to run, we
would be running to win, not just
running to run. I've never lost at
anything in life except marbles. I
wouldn't enter this race to lose
he said.
Fitch said this past session
of the General Assembly will go
down as one of the greatest in
history. Among the record num-
ber of laws passed were the bond
referendum, a tuition increase,
prison issues, rural economic de-
velopment issues and the .08
blood alcohol level.
The General Assembly also
killed the proposed governor's
veto power and the state lottery.
"The only way I can explain the
veto is that it is dead. I'm glad it
is dead, because I don't think
that's the way to go Fitch said.
Though many have criti-
cized Governor Hunt for not do-
ing enough to attract Mercedes,
Fitch said he did too much. Rather
than promising $100 million
worth of incentives, Fitch said
North Carolina should have
bought $100 million worth of
stock in Mercedes, and would
thus have had a say in where to
build the new plant.
Fitch also defended the job
performance of President Clinton.
"I think he has a hard job. People
may expect a miracle overnight,
but it will not occur
He praised Clinton's budget
and deficit reduction plan and his
position on Somalia, but indicated
that he would oppose a tax on
tobacco to finance the health care
plan. "To tax tobacco to pay the
cost is as wrong as not taxing alco-
hol, and alcohol is not on the table

Responding to a question
from the Board, Spangler said if
the bond passes, ECU would re-
ceive its money soon after. "The
money is there. What will happen
is the State Treasurer will sell the
bonds immediately. Within six
months almost all of the projects
should be underway he said.
Storrs pointed out that North
Carolina bonds carry an A AA rat-
ing and North Carolina is a low-
debt state which makes it attrac-
tive to investors. He didn't go as
far to say the debt would not
cause an increase in taxes in the
future, however.
"No one can commit a fu-
ture legislature to do something,
but the State Treasurer, usually
a very conservative man, has
stated that we shouldn't have to
raise taxes. This could be an
excuse, but not a reason Storrs

Assaults induce weapon discussion
It's starting to resemble "Mortal Kombat" out
there, folks.
Yes, we speak of Greenville. Who would have
thought that the quaint little town we call home
could be privy to an armed robbery and an at-
tempted armed robbery, both of which occurred
within three days of the other? And not only did
they take place in the fair Emerald City, but on the
ECU campus.
Last Wednesday night, two students were
confronted by two males in the parking lot of
Chico's restaurant, who proceeded to follow the
individuals onto campus, engaging in "lite" con-
versation. The four walked together until they
reached the secluded area between Flanagan and
Student Health Services. The suspects then drew
two weapons, one identified as a semi-automatic
handgun and the other a handgun of some type.
Both victims were ordered to lie on the ground, or
they would be shot. It is estimated by the victims
that more than $1,000 worth of gold jewelry was
The second assault took place Saturday night
behind the Rawl Annex, south of General Class-
room Building. Twoblack males grabbed an Aycock
resident walking by himself and pulled himbehind
Rawl. The assailants then hit the victim's head
against the wall and proceeded to punch him in the
chest, arms and side areas. When the victim indi-
cated that he had no money in his wallet, the
assailants reached into their jackets as if they had
guns and ordered the victim to the ground.
Both of these incidents prove some very im-
portant things: Greenville is not immune to violent
acts and no one should get lulled into believing that
they can walk the streets without harm. Gone are
thedays when you couldeventhirikofleavingyour
It's just not a pretty world out there, and unfortu-
nately it takes incidents like these to wake some
people up.
An important point to make is that one of the
assailants was in possession of a semi-automatic
weapon. Now, excuse us for getting a little upset
here, but honestly, there is no need in this world for
semi-automatic weapons in the hands of anyone,
and we challenge all readers to provide an instance
where said semi-automatic weapon is necessary.
It's hard to stomach the argument that Joe
Redneck needs one to shoot Bambi's head off in the
fierce sport that is hunting. It's not like the bear-
deer-moose-duck is standing around with a bullet-
proof vest and a semi-automatic of his own saying,
"Come on, man, lay it on me. I'm ready for ya
So the NRA gets in the middle of it, citing
freedom of expression and other such misinterpre-
tations of the Second Amendment. The Second
Amendment is extended only to those situations
having some "reasonable relationship" to the effi-
ciency of a well-regulated militia. This obviously
has nothing to do with private ownership of weap-
ons (or does it, to NRA members?).
The truth is, a ban on assault weapons (as
proposed in the Brady Bill) is not only constitu-
tional, but studies show it would also be effective.
The argument has been made that criminals get
their guns illegally, so why target legal sales? That
argument doesn't float � in 1988, the Oakland
Police Department found that only 12 of assault
weapons seized in criminal activity were obtained
illegally. Fully 88 of them were bought legally
over the counter.
Obviously the supply needs to be dried up as
soon as possible, especially if we're faced, as
Greenville residents, with the fact that semi-auto-
matic weapons are here and being used on stu-
Wake up, everyone. This reality has found it's

you think its leaving anytime soon. Don't walk

Old, usable books thrown out with trash
One of the hot topics of lo-
cal interest as the November elec-
tions approach is the bond refer-
endum which, if passed, will pro-
vide funds for renovations to
Joyner Library, among other
At Saturday's Homecom-
ing football game between ECU
and Louisiana Tech, Pee-Dee
sported a sticker urging us to
vote "Yes" on the referendum.
Ficklen Stadium's scrolling mes-
sage board said the same thing.
I have mixed feelings about
the bond referendum. On the one
hand I know Joyner Library and
other schools in the UNC system
need capital improvements. Yet,
I also realize that we will have to
pay for these improvements
somehow, and as with most gov-
ernment-run endeavors, there's
sure to be a substantial amount
of wasted revenues.
One such area of waste is in
the discarding of old but per-
fectly usable books. I was brows-
ing through my father's library
the other day when I came across
a womhardback copy of The Scar-
let Pimpernel. Scrawled on the first
page of the book was the single
word "DISCARDED Probably
thrown out of a high school li-
brary a great number of years ago,
I surmised.
Leafing through the dingy
pages grown brittle with age, that
faintly sweet, old-book aroma
wafted up into my face. Immedi-
ately the affect waste of the lone
word "DISCARDED" occurred to
me. Here was a classic work of
literature as viable today as it was
when Orczy rested her pen from
its completion, and someone had
desecrated the book (apparently
with great celerity, judging from
the sloppy handwriting) with a
stroke of a word.
This nameless, faceless van-
dal, now surely faded into the mist
of time, proved on some warm
summer day, as students filed onto
buses for the last trip home of the
school year, that the pen is indeed
mightier than the sword.
Why, I asked myself, was
such wasteful and drastic action
taken? A book is not a car, to be
junked once the engine is eroded
by friction; a novel contains no
moving parts. Our fingers move
to turn the pages, and our eyes
move to read the lines written
down, but the book is innocent. If
the cover becomes ratty, or the
pages brown and crinkled and
lacking in aesthetic quality, then it
is we who are deficient, lacking
the ken to peer beyond these su-
perficialities to the true meaning
of the gift. What of a few torn
pages or faded ink? What can these
trifles amount to in the face of
genuine Art, with a capital "A" as
Sandburg would have it spelled?
Thinking these things, I
picked up the forgotten book with
"DISCARDED" scratched inside
and, gripping it firmly with both
hands, left the study and made
towards my home, where I placed
the novel on my bookshelf. It rests
there to this day, safe and appreci-
If the administrators of
Joyner Library care about curtail-
ing wastes such as this as much as
I do, then I say we should vote for
the bond referendum.
At the very least we'll have
more space to store old books
which otherwise mightbe thrown
out with the trash.
By Brian Hall
Bond referendum intricacies misleading
On November 2 the voters
of this state will decide whether to
borrow $310 million for capital
improvements at state universi-
ties, about $29 million of which
would be used to expand Joyner
Library. While not questioning the
necessity of library expansion,
there are several reasons this pack-
age should be rejected.
First, since the state wants to
borrow money, it must be short on
funds. Nothing could be further
from the truth. This state took in
over $14.5 billion in fiscal 1993. If
the state would only cut present
spending by two-tenths of one
percent, it could pay for our li-
brary in just one year.
Second, according to a pam-
phlet from the University Board
of Governors, we are assured by
State Treasurer Harlan Boyles that
"state taxes should not have to be
raised to meet payments of inter-
est and principal We have heard
this one from politicians before.
Two years ago in Charlotte, the
city council promised that taxes
would not have to be raised to pay
for bonds. Last year Charlotte be-
gan taxing rain that falls on houses.
Third, once the government
has this money, there is nothing to
prevent it from spending the
money any way it wishes. I know
of at least two cases in just the past
few years where bond money was
spent on projects the voters did
not approve.
Finally, this same pamphlet
says that North Carolina has a
triple-A credit rating, which will
keep the interest rate low. The in-
ference being that borrowing is a
good idea. Let me use an illustra-
tion to disprove this.
Suppose, to make the figures
more understandable, we use an
individual, making $20,000 a year
after taxes, to represent the state.
At that scale, all the university
improvements would cost about
$400. Our present state debt
would be about $950. Joyner ex-
pansion would cost about $40. So
we have a person, $950 in debt,
who needs to make $400 worth of
repairs in the next few years.
Which would be wiser? A) Bor-
row the money and pay interest
for many years to come, or B) Use
$400 that this person would have
spent on something else.
Our representatives are try-
ing to mislead us with these
bonds. After all, who is going to
vote against improving educa-
tion? They hope that we will vol-
untarily vote to increase spend-
ing so that they don't have to
make tough spending decisions.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor
Flip down your radio dial, and you'll hear any
number of commercial radio formats on the air: Urban
Contemporary, Classic Rock,Top40,Country,etc. These
formats are dictated by such things as trends in record
sales, advertising revenues, opinion polls, and the musi-
cal tastes of the people in charge of radio stations. It's all
a very complex system, designed not only to mirror the
tastes of the public, but to predict and shape those tastes.
system. I've followed with great interest the saga of Beth
Arthur as it's unfolded in recent editions of The East
Carolinian. The accusation that Arthur has been sneaky
in trying to change the format of our campus radio
station seems to have struck a nerve. Arthur's written a
venomous letter in reply to those accusations, and now
in an October 7 headline article, she attempts to set the
record straight.
Exceptshedoesn't, really. Arthur says,inher letter,
"I have not discussed this with the staff at WZMB,
because I have not finished researching the subject of a
format change Then, in the Oct. 7 article, we are told
that Arthur said she spoke with the program director of
WZMB, Lee Judge. Now wait a minute. Either she talked
to somebody on the WZMB staff or she didn't. What
But this is only the first puzzling thing about the
story. If Arthur hasn't "finished researching the subject
then why did she, as the Oct. 7 article states, discuss a
format change with the Media Board? Why, in fact, did
she suggest Urban Contemporary and Country as for-
mat options? She felt comfortable enough with her
research to discuss these matters with her bosses but not
her employees?
Right. Arthur also talks about the stations played
To the Editor:
In last Thursday's issue of The East Carolinian,
Gregory Dickens lamented the role of men in our society
and their continued struggle with the scourge of politi-
cally correct behavior. He may be pleased to know that
a strong resistance is forming to confront the faulty logic
of PC and that men are now able to walk upright once
cologne, a female voice asks longingly, "where have you
guysbeen?"The manufacturer then asserts, with images
of virility, that, "menareback Andin themindsof most
women, not a day too soon.
The Brut commercial is one of many indicators tha t
sexually secure women desire a comeback of the tradi-
tional male persona. They have grown restless with the
"sensitive" man who nibbles on quiches and cries on
command. And they shun the impotenceof the Eighties'
male who dribbles Lord Byron, now favoring the more
penetrating stanzas of Garth Brooks.
It's no headline that scores of good men have been
missing in action for years; held in detention by a small
but vicious amazon assault squad and terrorized for
their inherent masculine ways. The resurrection of the
American male is a potent reaction to the doctrine of
these hellborn feminists and the crescendo lies of Anita
choice. "That tells me something she said. It tells me
something, too. The buses play the most inoffensive
music they can. They want Elevator Music, something
so bland that no one could possibly complaui about it
Elevator Music KISS 102 Yeah, that tells me a lot.
I also have a hard time buying Arthur's claim
when she's talking about going Country. I seriously
doubt you're going to hear a Clint Black tune followed
by the Revolting Cocks' "Steers, Beers, and Queers
But what an image that is, huh?
What it comes down to is mis: Beth Arthur and
Lee Judge have both expressed a personal dislike for
alternative music, and they're in charge. Never mind
that anyone who wants to hear mainstream music can
turn toadozen other frequencieson the dial thatsound
better than WZMB ever will. Never mind that Alterna-
tive Music has no other outlet (along with the Reggae,
Jazz, Heavy Metal, and other styles WZMB plays).
Never mind that Greenville has a fairly large popula-
tion of Alternative music fans who are being serviced
by WZMB and no one else.
Arthur has proposed a survey to decide the fate
of WZMB. But Alternativepeople are not likely to take
any survey very seriously. So I'd like to make a plea to
all the freaks (and non-freaks) reading mis. For once,
suppress those subversive tendencies. Don't give an
obviously fake name. Don't put Gregorian Chants
down as your music choice. Taike this seriously, and
save East Carolina's only dissenting voice, WZMB.

During the last ten years, simply being male has
been more often condemned than condoned in lefty
communes like state university campuses. Most have
created complex credos designed to portray even the
most well-intentioned Romeo as a slobbering lecher.
Here,manyinnocentmenhavebeen executed in public
for felonious acts like office flirtation or referring too
openly to their heterosexual ideals. Minor offenders are
usually spared the gallows, butmustendurea rigorous
deprogramrningsequence.This usually consistsofhelp-
ful lessons in politically correct courting rituals and big,
tasty doses of women's studies. Consequently, our
schools have seta patlietic standard for society's general
view of men.
During the next decade, we can expect to see a
Renaissance of the man's man and all the trappings that
set him apart from the milquetoast variety of the late.
He'll be confident in his chivalrous acts and natural
masculine demeanor, and he'll know that Byron makes
a great blotter for the beer spilled in passion in the
backseat of his Chevrolet.

Concrete Blonde releases fifth hit

Pictured above are members of Concrete Blonde. From left to right, Jim Mankey,
Johnette Napolitano and Harry Rushakoff. Mexican Moon hit stores two weeks ago.
By Sarah Wahlert
Staff Writer
Concrete Blonde has always been the
voice from the other side, the dark chil-
dren of Los Angeles' sunny skies. With
unflinching rage and passion, they record
events that would otherwise slip by un-
noticed. Their songs are often about the
things that happen in the back of people's
minds. They take ugly truths and mix
them with beautiful melodies, making
the experience universal.
Mexican Moon, their fifth album, and
first with Capitol Records, retains the ex-
citing intensity of their sound. Dramatic
and serious, this album is the perfect fol-
low-up to Walking in London, their fourth
endeavor. Before that album, Concrete
Blonde had been on the road almost con-
There were hard times with manage-
ment hassles and record company prob-
lems. A couple of the band's members
decided to do outside projects. Singer
Johnette Napolitano took a break from
her native L. A. to experience London and
Europe, hoping to renew her creativity.
She decided to come home after the un-
fortunate L.A. riots.
Napolitano returned with a slew of
songs that turned into Walking in London.
After the success of that album, she
bought a house and involved herself in
community service. And with time to
spare, she started work on Mexican Moon.
Concrete Blonde was again a very
close unit. Jim Mankey had remained con-
stant as guitarist, and drummers Harry
Rushakoff and Paul Thompson both ap-
pear on the album.
"I've finally come to terms with what
I do Napolitano says. "I used to think,
'rock�who cares?' But I love what I do.
I'm supposed to be doing this, you know?"
Johnette Napolitano was meant for
her profession. After listening to Mexican
Moon, I'm sure many others would agree.
I instantly took a liking to the fast-paced
first song, "Jenny I Read
And as if that song wasn't catchy
enough, the enduringly romantic title
track followed.
Each song seemed to have a different
sound, which kept me very interested.
"Rain" is the perfect showcase for
Napolitano's beautiful voice.
"I Call it Love" and "Jesus Forgive
Me" are songs definitely more centered
around Jim Mankey's smashing guitar
The loneliness of constant travel is
revealed in the empowering "Close to
To wrap up this wonderfully diverse
piece of work is "Bajo la Lune Mexicana
which is a second version of the title track
sung in Spanish.
"I've always wanted to sing in Span-
ish Napolitano says. The song is a trib-
ute to her favorite country.
Mexican Moon is an enjoyable treat.
Even if alternative music isn't your per-
sonal favorite, listeners can find at least
one song on this album that touches their
fancy�if not a song, then the funny cover

it up on the dance floor.
There's an even better reason to buy
it: give it to someone as a Halloween gift!

Robert Cray falls back on the blues
By Kris Hoffler
Staff Writer
The Robert Cray Band will
release its eighth musical arrange-
ment this fall. Robert Cray has
come into his own with Shame & A
Sin; and in this album, he has re-
turned to the basic formula of his
roots, the blues.
Although he has been on the
scene for 20 years, Cray's break-
through came with his 1986 debut
on the Mercury-Hightone label.
The album Strong Persuader won
him a Grammy and yielded two
international'iiK "mokingGun"
and "Right Next Door (Because of
Me) He followed with the al-
bums Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
(1988), Midnight Stroll (1990) and
Was Warned (1992), all of which
have helped his steady growing
popularity with fans and critics
The past seven albums have
not been so attentive to the purity
ot the blues. Cray has drawn from
many genres in the past: r & b,
rock, pop, jazz and gospel all in-
fluence much of his previous work.
But in the case of Shame & A Sin,
the feeling is strictly straight-up,
12-bar blues, the music that is the
soul of America.
Some arti .s seem to be lean-
ing away from the over-produc-
tion that is the curse of the 90s.
Many of Cray's past excursions
have been an entity of much stu-
dio production, but not this time.
"We didn't go for the big produc-
tion thing says Cray. "We went
down to a small studio and just
had a good time It's easy to tell
this when listening to the CD; the
sound is pure and unfiltered.
Some of the songs on this re-
lease mix modern subject matter
with the aged methods of the
blues. "1040 Blues" and "I'm Just
Lucky That Way" aresongs tailor-
made for the recession-struck 90s.
Most of us have had a good dose
of the 1040 blues and long for the
day when we can tell the boss to
kiss off, because we just hit the
However, most of the songs
adhere to the standards of the
blues subject matter. Heart break,
infidelity and an insatiable long-
ing for the opposite sex are the
archetypal notions that the blues
convey so well. "I Shiver "Don't
Break this Ring" and "Leave Well
Enough Alone" are new compo-
sitions with all the feel of old stan-

Robert Cray has done it again. In his new album Shame and a Sin, Cray
explores his roots to bring a blues melody back into the new tunes.
Cray has hit a new level of
artistry with Shame & A Sin. There
are few, if any, artists of this cali-
ber in modern music. Citing Cray's
role in the continuation of the
blues, Eric Clapton told Rolling
Stone: "It's really down to Robert

The ban is a Chicago-bred quintet

together, feeding off of each other's

ist Jim Bonaccorsi, drummer Simon
Harrocks. Jim's brother, Rob, joined
as the third guitarist and fifth mem-

After their gigs on thissummer's

result is Waiting For The Night, the

Demolition Man tries its best to
be more than a typical shoot-em-up
action picture, but aside from a few
bits of humor, it does not succeed.
The sets look like they were bor-
rowed from some futuristic TV
show, i.e. they look cheap. The dia-
logue is clunkier man usual in these
types of pictures and the preposter-
ousness of the various fist and gun
battles boggles the imagination.
The villains in this film areeven
poorer shots than most bad guys in
action films. Phoenix has Spartan
directly in front of him several times
yet never even wings him. Though
movie-goers have come to expect
invincibility in their heroes, the ab-
surdity of Demolition Man wears
thin. Why can't the filmmakers just
avoid giving Phoenix so many
chances to aim his gun directly at
Stallone plays his usual self,
which is meant as neither criticism

Plot elements are addressed

but not his daughter. Once, an of-

student) tries to locate her, butSpar-
tan stops her because he is not sure
if he wants to see his little girl in a

The machine issues demerits by

every profanity uttered. Spartan

for toilet paper.
If Demolition Man teaches any-
thing about cinema, it is that good
action pictures are almost as diffi-
cult to make as good comedies. Paul

so easy that the audience some-
times forgets how much artistry is

gained for in Alan Alda, their host
for the fourth season of their
monthly science magazine show
on PBS.

"RoboCop" or "Aliens Alda
leams how to lope about in the

to create a powered suit that would

Alda also visits experimental
programs for paraplegics. They lit-
erally plug themselves into por-
table computers that fire sequences
of electrical impulses into their
muscles, letting them stand, walk,
even climb steps.
This is still basic research in its
early stages, but we also get to
meet people who are direct benefi-
ciaries of bionics:
We encounter a man whose
failing heart is augmented by an
electric, air-driven pump while he
awaits a human transplant, and
another man who "sees" his grand-
son for the first time through pro-
totype "electronic glasses" that
compensate for his visual impair-

autobahn in a car that guides itself
and examines the problem of recy-

December's program looks at

the glare and glitz of cold, bold build-
ings, Mark Balma reached back to the
Renaissance for tools to give form to
a vision.
It slowly has taken shape on the
arched atrium ceiling of the Univer-
sity of St. Thomas, in the rich earth
pigments of Michelangelo's era:
golden ochre from central Europe,
red sinopia from Greece, black from
charred grapevine, cobalt blue from
stark white of bleached bone.
When it's finished, it will be one
of the largest public frescoes in the
United States. Four of seven panels
spanning the 17-by-112-foot ceiling
are complete; Balma will return next
summer to do the last three.
The $700,000 project is a labor of
art and spirit for the 36-year-old
Balma, who grew up in a Minneapo-
lis suburb and lives near Assisi, Italy.
He's oneof a handful of artists work-
ing in an ancient medium known as
the mother of all painting.
Like fresco masters of the Re-
naissance, he's using the form to con-
vey a spiritual message�in this case,
the seven virtues outlined by univer-
sity namesakeStThomasof Aquinas:
faith, justice, prudence, hope, tem-
perance, fortitude and charity.
The finished panels representan
eclectic blend of religious traditions.

well, the colors become a permanent
part of the surface: they're literally set
in stone. The only way an artist can
change the image is to chip it off and
start again.
With his bushy beard, Balma at
work evokes a Renaissance artist; he
lacks only a smock and tights to re-
place his paint-speckled white shirt,
black Levi's and si'spenders. He is

do, what he has done since he was a

It took hours of pounding the
pavement, a portfolio of portraits
under his arm, before one gallery
in Milan later that year brought in
more portrait commissions.

ing skills.
In 1980, he went to Italy to ap-

A homecoming crowd of
27,103 (estimated) saw the East
Carolina Pirates defeat the Bull-
dogs of Louisiana Tech 31-28 on
Saturday at Ficklen stadium. Mak-
ing his first collegiate start for the
Pirates was true freshman Perez
Mattison, who was called to re-
place starter Chris Hester. Hester
will likely miss the rest of the sea-
son due to surgery on his thumb.
The win moves the Pirates
record to 2-4 on the season, but to
head coach Steve Logan this game
was a crucial stepping-stone for
ECU football.
"It would have been nice to go
out there and win this game 40-to-
nothing today Logan said. "After
the game I told my team that I was
glad to win the way we did. We
could have folded, but we played
hard. This game could really start
us in the right direction. After ev-
ery loss this season, I've said that
what's inside these kids is good.
This victory rewards their efforts
The Pirates received the open-
ing kick-off and started their first
drive of the game with a disap-
pointing three-and-out. A short
pun t by Bill Wilson gave the Bull-
dogs good field position to start
their first drive. On their third
play from scrimmage, Tech run-
ning back Jason Cooper ran wide
left past the ECU defense and
into the end zone.
With the Bulldogs gaining
the early 7-0 lead, it was time for
Mattison to step up and lead the
offense. Mattison led the Pirates
down the field with the help of a
high catch by sophomore half-
back Jerris McPhail to give ECU
the first down. After a 27-yard
completion by wide-out Morris
Letcher, the rest was up to run-
ning back Junior Smith. Smith
ca ught a 26-yard gain on a screen
pass to put the Pirates in scoring
position, and, on first and goal
from the seven, Smith followed a
key block by offensive tackle Ken
Carroll to find the end zone.
The Bulldogs ran the kick-
off back to their own 38-yard line
after poor coverage from special
teams. ECU got a big play on
second-and-six, whenTechquar-
terback Jason Martin threw an
interception to linebacker Reggie
Robinson, who ran the ball back

After having two weeks to
prepare for the North Carolina
Collegia teChampionship meet in
Cullowhee, N.C on the campus
of Western Carolina University,
the men's and women's cross
country teams headed in with
high expectations of improving
on last year's finishes.
Behind the running of Dava
and Tara Rhodes for the women
and Sean Connolly for the men,
both teams posted some of their
best individual and team perfor-
mances in Pirate history.
Leading the way with a top-
five finish was half of the twin
combination, Dava Rhodes, who
turned in a time of 18:00, a per-
sonal best. Earning second place
for ECU was Tara Rhodes who

did not quit. After coming hack
to tie the score at 14, the Rams
kept the pressure on, and came
through at the end to win the
game 16-14. The match was tied
at one game each.
In game three, the Pirates

VCU jumped on the Pirates from

ECU called a time-out to try to

now led two games to one.
The Pirates came back to life
in game four. It wasa hard fought
game by both teams. The Pirates
play was sparked by outside hit-
ter MelanieRichards, who helped
keep the team focused duringthe
game. With the score tied at 12,
ECU applied pressure. The Pi-
rates dominated the net and
jumped ahead of the Rams to take
game four 15-13.

In an extremely action-
packed game, the Pirates got great
play again from Brne, who helped
ECU get a 12-10 lead. Chances to
put the game away were blown
three straight times by ECU, who
failed to execute on serves when
it counted. The Rams capitalized
on the errors, and brought the
score back to 12-11. ECU called a
time-out with their one-point

gave Mattison problems through-

he continued to play.
Agood stand on defense forced
a punt on Tech's following posses-
sion. An illegal block in the back
pushed ECU back to their 23-yard
line. After the Ti ra tes were forced to
punt, the Bulldogs' offense had
trouble against a tough Tirate de-
fense led by linebackers Mark
Libiano and Morris Foreman. A 33-
yard field goal by Tech kicker Chris

Perez Mattison showed his
mobility on the Pirates next drive.
Mattison ran for 28 yards as the
Pirates had seven first downs in 13
plays. On first-and-goal from the
nine, Mattison lofted the ball to
McPhail in thecomerof theendzone
to give the Pirates a 21-10 lead.
ECU continued its abysmal
special teams performance for the
day on the kick-off, allowing Tech
to start from their 45-yard line.
Again it was the Pirate defense
making up for the special teams, as
Tech was forced to punt from the
ECU 40-yard line. On the Pirates
next drive, Mattison and company
got to the Tech nine where kicker
Chad Holcomb booted a field goal
to make the score 24-10. A Tech
field goal before the end of the first
half gave the Pirates a 24-13 lead
going into the lockeroom.
The Pirates offense continued
their history of having trouble scor-
ing points in the third quarter. Tech
scored the only points of the quar-
ter on a touchdown pass to wide
receiver Chad Mackey. Tech tried
for the two-point conversion but
failed on the plav, making the score
The fourth quarter started on a
downnole for thePirates. On third-
and-three from their own 29,
Mattison was hit and fumbled the
ball, which was recovered by Tech
defensive end Demetrius Fowles.
"That fumble was the only big
disappointment for Perez on the
day � I take total blame on that

other bright spot for the Pirateswas
theplay of linebacker Mark Libiano,
who returned after suffering a knee
"It felt good to be back. We
played asa team this week Libiano
said. "Theoffense played good and
that reallyhelpedusdeliver. Every-
one was really pleased after the
game. Weall know weshould have
more wins, but this season can't be
trashed because of a few losses
As with every game, certain
aspects of the team still need more
work. "Our special teams was aw-
ful. Italmostcostusa football game.
It's stupid to clip somebody in the
back. It's really ridiculous Logan
Aknee injury to Morris Letcher
in the third quarter is once again
going to force Logan to put in
younger players in substitution.
Redshirt freshman Mitchell Gallo-
way came in and made some big
plays for the team.
"It's my job to step up and get
the job done when it's needed
Galloway said. "I just hope we can
continue playing well
The win is more than just a
notch in the victory column for the
Pirates. In a season that still has
Virginia Tech and Kentucky left on
the schedule, hopefully this win will
signify bigger and better things to
come in ECU football.

Eventually I just liked football more
than anything else. You know, as a
kid you'll fantasize about playing.
You will be out there in the yard
playing football, pretending like
you're Lynn Swann. Yeah, I d id that,
butl was never really pushed toplay,
even high school football. My mother
was like 'you can do what you want
Fortunately, God gave me the ability
to play and participate ir high school
and college. I still may be able to play
after college
Playing professional football af-
ter college is something that only the
elite players get to do. Letcher feels
the NFL but will not be overly disap-
pointed if he doesn't because he will
be getting his degree in December.
Letcher is still very confident in his
ability to take his game to the next
question about that Letcher said.
"It's just the question of me having a
decentseason so rhatlcan compete in
the combine or go to a senior bowl. I
just have to wait and see. I'm not
puttingallmy chips in the NFL.There
are so many things that can happen.
I'mprepared togoif I get drafted, but
if not, I should be getting a degree in
December in criminal justice. That
will do me just fine. I know a lot of
athletes that go to college and play

four years and never get a degree, so
as long as I get my degree, it doesn't
even matter
For now, with Letcher's final
season with the Pirates just half-way
over, the concentration is still solely
onfootball.Itisontbiefield that Letcher
has garnered the reputation as a per-
son who is able to take a hit.
"I guess that it's because I'm so
little and I can take a lot of hits
Letcher said. "I'm able to bounce up
and just continue playing. All of my
life that I have been playing football,
I've been bruised up here and there
and just been able to play with the
pain. Fortunately, I've just been
blessed with that ability
Off the field, win or lose, one of
"She recognizes me on TV Letcher
said. "Shewatched theSyracusegame
on TV. She was screaming 'there's
daddy, there goes daddy When I
called home after theSyracusegame,
the baby's mother said that every
timeshe would watch a footballgame
now, she would say 'there goes
Morris, theregoes Morri s. T t's kind of
exciting, and I kind of miss being
around her
No matter what, when Letcher is
on the field, the team can count on
him to bring his prime-time ability
and confidence to the field as well.
Hopefully he will play in purple
and gold at least once more.
