Election rules pose questlmrof democracy
By Karen Hassell
News Editor
On Sept. 2s Meredith
Howard was elected by more
than 2 to 1 for the office of Stu-
dent Government Association
(SGA) executive secretary. To-
day, Kristie Hoffstedder has the
Justin Conrad, chair of the
elections committee, stated the
results of the race between
Meredith Howard and Kristie
Hoffstedder were about 486 to
186 in Howard's favor.
"Meredith failed to turn in
her expense report on time
Conrad said. "She was immedi-
ately disqualified. Her campaign

manager came to me and I put
her back on the ballot, thinking I
had the power to do that
Expense reports, outlining
all materials used during theelec-
tion, whether purchased by the
candidate, already in possession
of the candidate or donated to
the candidate, were due before 5
p.m. on Monday, Sept. 27. For
executive officers there is a $200
limit on campaign expenses.
Howard unexpectedly left
Greenville on Friday to go to
Duke Hospital, where her father
had been admitted. When she
returned at the beginning of the
following week, she missed the
deadline to turn in her report.
Hoffstedder turned in her ex-
pense report to the SGA secre-
tary, Millie Murphrey, by the
deadline on Monday.
Hoffstedder said that at this
time she was told that no one else
made the deadline and she was
running uncontested. She then
informed her friends that they
did not need to vote.
As chair of the elections
committee, Conrad was con-
tacted on Tuesday, Sept. 28. Ac-
cording to Howard and Conrad,
Conrad then contacted Kristie
Hoffstedder and i t was agreed to
put Howard back on the ballot
for the election the next day.
Hoffstedder said that
Conrad agreed to let Howard run
in the election and Hoffstedder
learned of this through a friend
around 4 p.m. on Tuesday. She
was unable to contact Conrad to
verify this. Hoffstedder contends
that Conrad was avoiding her.
She finally caught up with him at
2 p.m. on Wednesday. At this
point the election was already in
progress and both names were
on the ballot.
"I was never given the
chance to agree or disagree with
Meredith running Hoffstedder
said. "Justin was never going
to tell me
"I thought and still do that
I made a morally correct deci-
sion putting her Howard back
on the ballot Conrad said. "Un-
fortunately, I did not have that
Elections were held on
Wednesday, Sept. 29, from 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m. At 4 p.m. on Wednes-
day, Hoffstedder submitted an
appeal to Student Attorney Gen-
eral Michael Romance, and
Conrad disqualified Howard.
Hoffstedder appealed
Howard's victory on the basis
that "she should have never been

and I told them it was unfair
Howard said. "I submitted an

Michael Romance, and from
there it went to the elections
The appeal was heard by
the election committee. The fi-
nal decision was to disqualify
Howard and instate
Hoffstedder. Romance said
the decision was established
on the basis that the election
never should have happened
in the first place.
"There is no excuse, no

Religious authority
makes predictions
By Shannon Cooper
Staff Writer
Jim Jones and David
Koresh have both received wide
news coverage for their eccen-
tric religious behavior, and the
media turn to many authorities
when such controversies hit the
front page. One authority is Dr.
Martin E. Marty.
ECU s Religious Studies
Program hosted a public pre-
sentation with Dr. Marty as guest
speaker on Oct. 21.
Marty is the author of 40
books and is senior editor of the
Christian Century magazine. He
is also the Fairfax M. Cone Dis-
tinguished Service Professor of
the History of Modern Christian-
ity at the University of Chicago.
The title of Marty's lecture
was "What a Way to End a Mil-
lennium: Fundamentalism and
Other Hardlines, Today and To-
His presentation centered
around fundamentalism, the re-
ligious beliefs based oil a literal
interpretation of the Bible and
the turn of the millennium.
According to Marty, fun-
damentalism has helped to
change today's agendas. For ex-
ample, a lotof people are talking
about the family, while this was
an rather unpopular topic a few
years ago.
As Marty explained, we are
in a cultural war where there are
many factions and organizations
counteracting each other. He
gave the issue of abortion as an
example of the cultural war.
"In every survey I find 10-
15 percent of Americans are pure
pro-life. Pure pro-life means you
don't consider the woman's life
you don't ask incest, you don't
ask race. The fetus has all the
rights of a person. Pure pro-
choice says a woman's body is
her own to do with what she
wants, no questions about
whether the fetus has rights
Marty said.
Marty also gave his opin-
ion of the role religion plays in
the lives of college students.
"I never think that college
age is the time when most people
are attentive to organizations
and institutions of the church
Marty said.

be faculty and students. Also,
6,000 bookmarks have been
printed to be placed in books

week and t-shirts promoting the
bond issue will be worn by stu-
dents at the polls on election day.

Survey ranks colleges by fun factor
Caffeine: A student's breakfast of champions
It is the fuel nt all-nighters. The lifeblood thatcourses
tiirough the veins of college students, pushing them on
toward academic achievement. And sometimes, as a popu-
lar button proclaims, it is your only friend. It's caffeine, and
students devour it in mass quantities. Maria Celes, a Union
Square Cafe employee, said the University of Arizona
Student Union restaurant sales about 15 pounds of coffee,
and 2,400 ounces of soda each day. And that's just the
beginning. Add to that a daily total of about 100 hot
espressos, 15 gallons of cold espresso and six gallons of tea.
Some students said they use caffeine to replace eating and
sleeping. "When you get only two hours of sleep each night
you really need it said one student. "It was Mountain
Dew and M&Ms for breakfast that would keep me going
she said. Another student said she recently had the choice
of using her last three quarters for coffee or bus fare. "I
walked home she said, adding that the caffeine gave her
enough energy to make the trek.
Anti-abortion groups target college papers
Pro-Hfe groups are targeting colleges with paid news-
paper supplements that use first-person accounts and pho-
tographs of babies and developing fetuses to urge women
to consider alternatives to abortion. "We had hoped to put
it in 100 campuses nationwide this year said Bob
Cheatham, a graduate student at the University of South-
ern California and past president of the California Colle-
gians for Life. Students who oppose abortion want to print
and distribute 1 million copies of the publication through
campus newspapers. The campus newspapers at Stanford
University at Palo Alto, Calif the University of Texas-
Austin and the University of California-Los Angeles are
among about three dozen universities that have agreed to
run the pre-printed 12-page advertisement, which runs as
an insert However, the supplement has raised objections
from some students who believe it is an attempt to bypass
the editorial process and get pro-life views into circulation
vi thoutdissenting opinions. Pro-choice students also have
criticized some information in the publication as false or
misleading and question whether First Amendment issues
are involved.

That's because, as the young
editors of an irreverent publica-
tion for college-age men put it,
those schools may excel in aca-
demics, but they "rot" when it
comes to having fun.
The pollsters emphasize

The unscientific poll ap-
pears in Inside Edge, a national
magazine produced by students
from Boston-area colleges, includ-
ing Harvard, which was No. 122
on the list.
Using reports from 50 stu-
dent correspondents nationwide,
Inside Edge graded America's 300
largest coed universities on nine
criteria ranging from the bar and
club scene to sports. The
magazine's Nov. issue lists the
top 20 and worst 10.
"The things we rate are
things that make the schools fun
to go to said publisher Aaron
Shapiro, 21, a Harvard senior.
While researchers consid-
ered "ease of classes" and "ease
of graduation Shapiro insisted
they don't view the top schools as
filled with brain-dead party ani-
The top 10, in order, were:
Florida State, the University of
California at Santa Barbara, Ver-
mont, Rice, Georgetown, Syra-
cuse, Alabama, Perm State, Con-
necticut and Tulane.
Glen Torbert, 21, a Florida
State senior, agreed with his
school's No. 1 ranking and touted
frat parties that attract as many as
740 students. But Florida State's
respected academic programs are
evidence that scholarship and so-
cial life aren't mutually exclusive,
he said.
"We can party on Friday and
Saturday nights and still do well
in our classes the rest of the week
Torbert said.
The University of Chicago
was No. 300.
Faye Steiner, vice president
of student government at Chicago,
wasn't sure she agreed with the
bottom-rung ranking but couldn't
argue with the reasoning.
"It's certainly not a party
school by any stretch of the imagi-
nation said Steiner, a junior.
Others in the bottom 10, in
descending order, were Yale,
Tufts, Oral Roberts, California In-
stitute of Technology, Brigham
Young University, the U.S. Naval
Academy, Johns Hopkins, the
Rochester Institute of Technology,
and the U.S. Military Academy.
Of the Military Academy,
Inside Edge wrote: "West Point
features curfews, discipline,
hard work, no drinking, no so-
cializing and cold weather
Shapiro and Editor in Chief
Jonathan Hsuapiro, also a 21-
year-old Harvard economics
major, conceived the idea for
Inside Edge last year while la-
menting the lack of a magazine
targeting 20-something men.
Students write and edit all ar-
ticles, focusing on dating, sex,
drinking, cars, clothes, sports
and music.
The current issue is the first
since Inside Edge's debut in April.
Shapiro, who intends to remain
publisher after he graduates,
says the magazine will go
monthly in January.
Warner Publishing Ser-
vices, a Time Warner company,
distributes about 300,000 copies
of Inside Edge nationally.

the South is not.
It's not the geographic re-
gion where kudzu grows. Kudzu
has crept as far north as the Ohio-
Kentucky border and as far west
as Oklahoma. If global warming
raises temperatures a mere four
degrees, Reed said, people may
be fighting the infernal vine on
the shores of Lake Erie.
Nor is the South the only
area dominated by evangelical
Protestant religion. Plenty of Bap-
tists live in Illinois and Ohio. Nor
is it the region where cotton was
once king. Parts of Kentucky and
Texas never grew cotton, but are
considered "Southern" in many

Reed, "the South is a shared idea,
a cultural construct As a place,
it does have identifiable charac-
teristics � some good, some not.
Southern states have a huge
concentration of Confederate
monuments, and nearly all the
encampments of the Sons of the
Confederacy (47 in North Caro-
lina, 59 in Alabama and only two
in Illinois).
Historically, Southern states
have had twice as many homi-
cides as the national average, said
Reed. And they, with Nevada,
have the lowest life expectancy

Studies dispute benefits of a Charlotte NFL team
I hint nount
mic benefit the state can
expect from .i professional foot-
ball team.
Hunt has said a new team
playing in a now downtown
Charlotte stadium could bring
as much as $400 million a year in
new spending. The rest of the
sta te could benefit from a result-
ing increase in tax revenue, ac-
cording to the governor's think-
But some economists ques-
tion such estimates. They con-
tend new stadiums and teams
mostly divert spending from
other forms of entertainment. Off
the playing field, a pro football
team creates mostly low-paying
service jobs, they said.
"Most of the jobs that sports
create are seasonal and part-
time said Mark Rosentraub, an
associate dean in Indiana
Universitv's public affairs pro-
gram in Indianapolis.
When a new sports team
comes to town, families and busi-
nesses don't spend more, they
reallocate their spending, said
Rof Baade, an economist at Lake
Forest College in Lake Forest, 111.
Families typically have lim-
ited budgets from which they
draw money for movies, con-
certs, meals at restaurants or
sporting events, Baade said. They
don't typically expand their en-
tertainment spending to accom-
modate the new team, he said.
A business thatbuvsanad-
� ertisement on a billboard or in
a program at the proposed Char-
lotte stadium might have to shift
money from elsewhere in its bud-
get to pay for the ads, Baade said.
A; a result, some other venue �
such as the Charlotte Motor
Speedwav or Blockbuster Pavil-
ion � might lower advertising
"Sport is an important part
of our culture. But to pass stadi-
ums and teams off as cash cows
is to misrepresent what they can
do for a city Baade said.
Overall, only about 20 per-
cent to 30 percent of the spend-
ing generated by pro sports
teams is new money, Rosentraub
said. The rest is diverted from
somewhere else.
NFL owners are expected
to award franchises to two cities
on Tuesday in Chicago. Besides
Charlotte, the finalists are Balti-
more, Memphis, Term, and Jack-
sonville, Fla.
The $400 million estimate
Hunt has quoted to describe a
Charlotte team's economic im-
pact presumes a dramatic up-
surge in new spending. When
asked where Hunt got his figure,
a spokesman for the governor
said, "the NFL folks

pects pro-football to have so big
an effect in North Carolina.
Studies have shown that a
pro-football team generates
about$80 million to SI60 million
a year in a community, said Greg
Aiello, a spokesman for the NFL.
An economic study com-
missioned bv Muhleman Mar-
keting, a Charlotte company
working for Richardson Sports,
said an NFL team would gener-
ate about $281 million in new
spending in Mecklenburg
County in its first year in the
new stadium. It would result in
S358 million in the Charlotte met-
ropolitan area.
Pro football could boost the
state's economy if it draws free-
spending fans from South Caro-
lina. But Richardson Sports de-
clined to state how many per-
manent seat licenses it has sold
outside the state. The licenses,
which all finance the construc-
tion of a new stadium, repre-
sent the only measure thus far
in which the public has voted to
support a new team with its
NFL owners and their crit-
ics do agree that pro sports
teams enhance the image of their
home cities.
Tony Crumbley, a vice
president in the Charlotte
Chamber of Commerce, said a
good image makes it easier to
attract new businesses. The
Charlotte Hornets basketball
team has proved that, he said.
"I took a trip to Canter-
bury, England, this summer, and
there was a sports store there
with a Hornets T-shirt hanging
in the window Crumbley said.
That means the next time a
Charlotte corporate recruiter
calls on English business people
there, they probably will have
heard of the city, he said.

IRA explosion kills 10 people
BELFAST, Northern Ireland
(AP) �The leader of the pro-IRA
Sinn Fein party says he believes a
botched IRA bombing that killed 10
people over the weekend could re-
sult in renewed efforts to end 23
vears of bloodshed.
In an interview with The As-
sociated Press, Gerry Adams out-
lined his shock at the Irish Republi-
can Army bombing Saturday on
Shankill Road, the Protestant heart-
land of west Belfast.
The blast in a fishmonger's
shop collapsed a two-story build-
ing on shoppers. The 10 dead in-
cluded two girls aged 7 and 13, and
58 people were injured. One of the
bombers also was killed.
The IRA said it was trying to
wipe out the leadership of the out-
lawed Ulster Defense Association,
an anti-Roman Catholic gang that
has killed 16 people this year.
Its west Belfast offices above
the shop were obliterated.
Ken Kerr, a former UDA com-
mander, said he and other pro-
British loyalists had been ina meet-
ing therebut left about 45 minutes
before the blast.
Adams said Sunda y that this
idea of "eliminating loyalist death
squads" to prevent the killing of
Catholic nationalists was "well-
mentioned but had disastrous
"What happened was a
great tragedy.
But no one should use what
happened yesterday as any sort of
an excuse for not being involved
in the peace process Adamssaid

"For those who are commit-
ted to building peace, the killings
on the Shankill Road should be an
incentive to move forward he

end to this conflict, to move us

writers are telling much that had

At the same time, black

SGA elections marred by discrepancies
SGA election information has never
been so interesting. Nothing like a little
controversy to liven up the place, don't ya
But for those of you who just fell out
of a squirrel's nest, here's the scoop: on
Sept. 29 Meredith Howard was elected to
the office of executive secretary, except now
Kristie Hoffstedder holds the position.
"Wait a minute you say, "just what
are you trying to do, confuse me or some-
thing?" Well, frankly, no. But the story
tends to get a little complicated, so hold on
to your proverbial hats and pay attention.
Even though Meredith Howard re-
ceived 486 votes to Kristie Hoffstedder's
186, Hoffstedder was appointed to the po-
sition. This is credited to the fact that
Howard failed to turn in her expense report
on time, disqualifying her from the elec-
tions. Howard unexpectedly left Greenville
on Sept. 24 to go to Duke Hospital, where
her father had been admitted. By the time
she returned, she had missed the deadline.
According to both Justin Conrad, elec-
tions committee chair, and Howard,
Hoffstedder was contacted and it was
agreed to place Howard back on the ballot
for the election the next day. Hoffstedder
denies this. In any case, Conrad did not
have the power to do so. Hoffstedder then
submitted an appeal and Howard was dis-
There are obvious inconsistencies in
the rules which added to the difficulty of
the situation. Under Article VII, Sec. 5c, the
election rules for SGA state: "Any candi-
date failing to submit an expense account
or list of workers by 5 p.m. two days prior
to the election shall be disqualified and
removed from the ballot
But those same election rules also state:
"In the event of the disqualification of a
winning candidate of an election, a new
election will occur two weeks from the origi-
nal election date
In addition to these rules, it must be taken
into consideration that Howard was placed on
the ballot again by someone who didn't have
the power to do so � a discrepancv, and yet
certainly not a major factor. She was placed on
the ballot. The mere act of it clearly disproves
this so-called discrepancy.
Howard also insists that Hoffstedder
agreed to placing Howard back on the ballot
the night before the election Well, that's one
person's word against another�very hard to
prove, even in an age of tape recorders and
Alright. So things got a little confusing
and wacky in the happy place that is SGA.
What's the big deal? What do you care?
Well, would adding Article III, Sec. 6 help
in spicing this situation up any? It reads:
"If all rules and regulations speci-
fied by the election rules are not followed,
the committee's salaries will be withheld
until the specifications are met and ap-
proved by the SGA Legislature
Aha! What is it with money and the hu-
man psyche? What is it about money that
makes seemingly normal men and women do
things that they wouldn't expect from their
mortal enemy?
Nooowww it's becoming clear � it's
money that inhibits the likelihood of another
election. Well, that doesn't surprise anyone!
It's painfully obvious that there were
enough problems with this election to justify

Suicide rates augment during holidays
Well, on the good side, we
welcome the Statue of Freedom
back to her personal high rise-
haunt atop the Capitol building
in Washington, DC, after a much
needed five-month hiatus at the
cleaners. And for those of you
who didn't know, the moose
population is up in New England,
which is pretty good for the gun-
totin' hunters, (be sure to bring
along that semi-automatic for that
clean kill!). Of course, this isn't so
hot for those "Northern Expo-
sure" die-hards out there, to say
nothing of
It's a tragedy, and
even professionals
are not capable of
predicting these
how the
moose feel.
But, I didn't
come here to
talk today
about moose
or cleaning
bills, or to
make snide
about fire- mmm
While traipsing about
through the newspapers the other
day, I spotted a couple of articles
that not only caught my eye
(which hurts) but also alarmed
and angered me. In case it isn't
common knowledge (it wasn't to
me), in Goffstown, N.H. they're
having to deal with teen suicide.
In this instance it concerns a young
girl, the fifth in a series that have
transpired over the past two and
a half years. I'm sure to most of
you, the small city of Goffstown
means about as much to you as
moose hoof clippings. Butsuicide
is a problem in America, a big
problem, and it does nothing to
alleviate the tension in the ques-
tionable, shaky future of our na-
tion and its youth.
The caus" of the tragedy was
due to harassm. nt, both verbal and
physical, not from the parents or
psychos lurking in dark alleyways,
but from the victim's peers and
fellow classmates. In a note ad-
dressed to loved ones, the young
girl admitted her decision to com-
mit suicide stemmed from her in-
ability to endure the ridicule and
hazing from classmates at the local
high school. In fact, the Goffstown
Area High
School has be-
come notorious
for it's abusive
cliques, accord-
ing to local stu-
dents and par-
ents. Trifling
matters, even
one's style of
clothing is all it
MBMHMHMHM takes to either
place them on a
pedestal or throw them into a ston-
ing pit.
Of course, the usual sources
have been listed for this rise in teen
harassment and the suicide rate.
Easy access to firearms, alcohol
abuse, poor school and home envi-
ronments, and (get this one) poor
TV images (huh-huh-huh) are some
of the components New Hamp-
shire health and school officials and
parents are blaming. And I believe
these are valid accusations, and
action must be taken, whether it's
turning off the TV (so simple, yet
so effective) or trying to pull a bro-
ken family together.
Now I know high school was
rough at times. I certainly wasn't
the most popular guy myself, and
I dealt with the occasional scrape
that plagues all of us during the
teen years as we strive to find our
place in social standings. But pick-
ing on someone, based on whether
or not they wear Levi jeans, and
crushing thir self esteem to the
point where they find solace only
in suicide? Come on people, that's
I'm certainly not saying the
incident in Goffstown is the way of
every city in the U.S. Unfortunately,
teen pressures make up just a small
part of the irritants that can cause
suicidal tendencies. And it's not
always easy to pinpoint those in
turmoil. There are many who com-
mit suicide who have given no
warning signals. Up until they de-
cide to end their lives, they carry on
as if nothing were wrong, yet in-
side there is torment and unrest,
it's a tragedy, and even profession-
als are not capable of predicting
these unfortunate displays. But,
there are hundreds, thousands of
people who do display suicidal
characteristics and need the help
and support of friends and fami-
The main thing is that, the
people of New Hampshire, and
America for that matter, need to
keep a closer watch on what's hap-
pening to these people, both young
and old. Let's not forget the holi-
day s are almost upon us, and many
don't realize that while for most of
us i t's a time of celebra tion and fun.
for some it's a time of deep depres-
sion, a time when suicide rates soar.
Keep an eye open, friends, and help
stop the act and the cause.

Guns: inanimate objects wrongly blamed
Three ECU students were
robbed at gun point in the last sev-
eral days. The perpetrator is de-
scribed as being blackish-blue, six to
eight inches long, about four inches
in height, with a big, round hole in
the front. This object is considered to
be extremely deadly and, if spotted,
should not be approached, as it can
"magically" load itself and fire at
Oh, by the way, there were
some humans involved in the com-
mission of the act, but they're less
important than the primary suspect.
Sounds silly, doesn't it? But
that is exactly what is happening in
our society. Criminals � living,
breatiiing,humanbeings�use guns
to terrorize the public, and we focus
on the gun�theinanirnateobject�
as the cause of the problem.
How many thousands of
people every year are victims of vio-
edged weapon? Yet where's the cry
to ban knives? Ditto alcohol-related
automobile deaths. Numeroushigh-
way fatalities occur due to a driver
havingconsumed too much alcohol,
but I haven't seen many ECU stu-
dents calling for a reinstatement of
Why this breakdown in ratio-
nal thinking? Because our society is
becoming increasingly violent, and
outlawing guns is seen as a panacea
for this problem. Some people think
thatif gunownership is made illegal,
or next to it, then violent crime will
Cynthia Tucker,editorial page
editor for the Atlanta Constitution,
wrote a column last month wherein
she took whatshemusthavethought
was a terribly witty swing at gun
ownership. However,as willbecome
apparent in a few lines, Tucker's
argument nips itself in the heel, as
most anti-gun arguments do. She
writes: "If the United States were a
foreign country, the State Depart-
ment would need to issue explicit
warnings One of these warnings
would be to avoid the nation's capi-
tal, Washington, DC, where "it's
ing 'drive-by shootings' � has be-
come too high to take the risk of
visiting there. At 76 murders for ev-
ery 100,000 residents in 1992, Wash-
ington, DC has the highest homi-
She concludes her article with
the rhetorical question, "If mis were
somewhere else, Americans would
be apt to wonder why they don't do
something about it: Why won't they
do something about those guns?" (ital-
ics added).
Well, Ms. Tucker, and any-
one else out there who buys this
argument, we have done something
them. I called the Washington, DC
Police Department's fifth district
headquarters and spoke with Of-
ficer J.Holloway.
"How do I go about purchas-
ing a handgun in Washington,

"Can't get one the officer

"No, you can't bring a hand- �
gun in Officer Holloway said.
"I'd have to leave it outside
the district, then?" I asked.
"Thafs right she replied.
Comical, in a perverse sort of
way, isn't it? Washington, DC,
where one cannot legally purchase
or possess a handgun, is cited as a
prime argument for more gun con-
The amount of misinforma-
tion on this subject and the depth of
the illogic that surrounds it never
cease to amaze me.

To the Editor:
When I saw the editorial titled "Assaults induce
weapon discussion" (Oct. 19)1 expected to
the same faulty gun-control arguments from the past
several years.
The author writes "there is no need in this world
for semi-automatic weapons in the hands of anyone"
There is equally no need for Porches or Corvettes; nei-
ther is there a need for Nintendo games. Yet no one is
blaming these inanimate objects for the misuses of them
by a few people. It is fear borne of ignorance that leads
people to blame a tool for the action of its wielder.
The fact that most handguns used in crimes now
are bought legally in no way reflects how stopping the
supply from legal sources will affect criminals acquiring
weapons from illegal sources. Is it not more rational to
assume that the people who wanted handguns for illegal
purposes would simply switch to an illegal supply?
Are not places with the highest murder rates the
same places that ha ve restrictive guncontrol ordinances?
There is something backward about this if gun control
laws really work.
Is it not true that those places with the highest
number of guns per capita havevery low crimerates and
vice versa? In my home in rural North Carolina, over

Stand up, get crazy, let your imagination fly

The Plate-A-Puss, one of the many imagination-generated characters from "Imagine If with Jamie and The
Imaginites invites you to join him at the opening event of ECUs Young Audiences Performing Arts Series.
Staff Writer
Do vou ever have the urge to
decorate yourself with everyday
objects1 Well, now everyone can
experience that fantasy because
The ECU's Young Audiences Per-
forming Arts Series is presenting
"Imagine If with Jamie and the
"What on earth is that?" you
might ask. It's an action-packed
musical adventure story filled
with catchy songs. Everyone can
enjoy wacky and wild life-sized
body puppets, masks, mime and
juggling. This is an exciting story
that will show everyone how to
turn off the television set and turn
on the imagination.
The theme of the show is
Jamie's quest to cure his TV-itis.
For the first step of the cure, Dr.
Pagangee has Jamie make "crea-
ture creations" out of everyday
objects, such as paper cups, bal-
loons, pinwheels, etc.
Since we all have a little TV-
itis, children, parents and stu
dents are invited to turn off the
TV for one day and use everyday
objects to turn themselves into
"creature creations or as Jamie
calls them, "Imaginites
Some ideas for curing TV-itis
m ight include an "Imagi-Mouth
cut-outs of different sized lips and
mouths hung all over the body; a
"Mad Hatter a hat made out of
cardboard tubes and toilet paper;
or a "Soda Cap a costume made
out of soda cans and bottle caps.
Here's the best part. On the
day of the performance, every-
one is invited to be an lmaginite
for a parade or display in the
lobby where Jamie will meet ev-
erybody. Imagine: a whole t' �-
ater filled with Imaginites!

IVIr. Jones' sinks
high expectations
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
The newest film to deal with
mental illness comes in the form of a
Richard Gere vehiclecalled Mr. Jones.
Gere plays the title character in
Mr. Jones, a manic-depressive who is
introduced to the audience during
one of his highs. Mr. Jones virtually
forces his way into .1 construction
job, proceeds to befriend a fellow
carpenter, gives the carpenter SKX),
then walks to the edge of a roof and
balances perilously on the edge.
While standing on the very rim of
the roof Mr. Jones, watches the air-
planes flying overhead and claims
that he can fly.
Upon rescuing Jones horn the
roof, thecoworker has Jones taken to
a mental institution where Jones
meets Dr. Libbie Bowen Lena Olin),
a young, attractive psychiatrist with
whom Jones immediately establishes
a rapport.
Libbie fights to keep Jones insti-
tutionalized because she thinks he
has been misdiagnosed as a schizo-
phrenic. Noone believes Libbieunhl
Jones is readmitted after thinking he
should conduct a symphony.
After the symphony incident,
Libbie again fights to keep Jones in
her care and takes him to court to do
so. She loses the battle but wins the
war, because Jones soon enters a
severe depression cycle and again
finds himself in Libbie's care.
The rest of this long film
chronicles the building of a relation-
shipbetween Mr. Jones(whois never
given a first name) and Libbie.
Watching the machinations of this
love affair was as exciting as watch-
ing a rain-delay at a baseball game.
Oneof thepremisesof Mr. Jones
is that mental illness is not reallv a
diseasebuta way of life. Atone point
Jones yells: "I am not sick�this is
who 1 am
This lineoccursearly in the film,
and I had such a difficult time swal-
lowing this premise that I found my
throat clogged throughout the re-
mainder of the film. I was rendered
unable to digest anv of the other plot
elements (which turned out to be a
blessing since the rest of the film is
built upon this shaky foundation).
Becauseof my lack of sympathy
toward Mr. Jones, 1 could not believe
for one instant that Libbie would be
attracted to him. During Jones'
pained therapy sessions he brings
Libbie to tears. I sat there in shocked
disbelief wondering how she ever
got a license to practice medicine if
Jones'condition could make her cry.
Jones refuses to take medicine,
because he loves the highs of his
disease. "I'm a junkie he claims.
The highs are the equivalent of a
great drug. He says he prefers to live
through the lows to experience the
incredible highs than remaining at
an even keel with medication that
helps his chemical imbalances.
Here is a film that asks an audi-
ence to feel for a man who refuses
treatment even though he becomes
suicidal during his lows. The film-
makers want the audience to pity
this tortured man when the only
ti rture heexperiences isself-inflicted.
Mr. Jones ultimately proves to
be nothing more than a showpiece
for Gere, much like Scent of a Woman
was a showpiece for Pacino.
Gere has survived mainly on
his looks. His acting skills consist of
teigned disinterest or excessive
showboating. Gere has made only a
few memorable films. The cxxasional

Merl Saunders brings rainforest to Attic
By Julie Totten
Lifestyle Editor
Take one gallon of jazz, a cup
and a half of ska, a dash of blues
and reggae and stir it with a lot of
soul. Heat the mixture at 400 de-
grees for 15 minutes and, yes, you
will have a Merl Saunders souffle.
Tonight, Merl Saunders and
The Rainforest Dand will make
their debut in Greenville.
Showtime is at 9:30 and you are all
guaranteed a musical moment that
will never be forgotten.
To familiarize Saunders' to a
virgin audience won't be difficult.
Saunders has stayed buried in the
west coast composing, directing,
producing and recording with
such artist as the Grateful Dead,
Lena Home, Bonnie Raitt, Lou
Rawls, David Grisman, Jerry
Garcia, Harry Belafonte, Tower of
Powerand Dr.Johnand theStatler
This gentle-speaking man
(known for his black leather cap
nation-wide) has been in the mu-
sic industry for 30 years.
Although for the most part he
has dedicated his life to music, he
also had a calling to help save our
and the
fragile environment. Proceeds
from his album Blues From The
Rainforest, (which was a collabo-
ration with Jerry Garcia and stayed
on Billboard's New AgeChart for
27 weeks), went to the Rainforest
National Action Network to help
preserve international ecosystems.

release, is the shining result of 30
years in the industry.

'Stick' in 'Heavy Bag' and turn it up loud
By Kris Hoffler
Staff Writer
A little Stick history. Once
upon a time on a hot summer day
in 1987, in Lawerence, Kansas,Tim
Mohn and MarkSmirl decided to
form a band. Stick emerged via
jam sessions with Mohn on drums
and Smirl on vocals and some-
times guitar. The twosome soon
snagged Daniel Brannock (bass)
from the University of Kansasand
beganmoreexplorationsasa trio
Noticing that their songs were
becoming more guitar-oriented,
they decided that a more techni-
cally adept guitarist was needed.
Enter Mike Tobin.
He was recruited from a local
band and became their second and
lead guitarist.
These four young men, with
the addition of Kim Czarnopys on
lead vocals, toured middle
America for three years.
They chose the name Kill
Whitev. After opening for such
acts as Primus, Soundgarden,
Gwar and Seven Seconds,
Carnopys left the band topersue
her own tastes.The four remain-
ing members stayed together, be-
came more focused and hit the
stage a month later as Stick.
They took to the studio in
January of this year and produced
their debut album, Heavy Ba$.
The sound of this album is
somewhere in the area of funk,

Today: Suicide
Phoio courtesy ot Arista Records
Pictured above are the members of the gritty band Stick: Tim Mohn,
Darrel Brannock, Mike Tobin, Mark Smirl. Their latest release is out.
Answered by Dr. Marcia Shelton,
Suicidal threats and attempts al-
ways need tobe treated seriously. Itis
a mvth that people who talk about
killing themselves rarely commit sui-
cide. In fact, most people who com-
mit suicide have given some clue or
warning of their intentions. If you
think someone may be suicidal, ask-
ing questions like "Is anything
wrongor "You haven'tbeenyour-
self lately, what's the matter?" may
open a Sot xlgate of emotion. Asking
someone directly about suicidal in-
tent will often lower the anxiety level
and act as a deterrent to suicidal be-
havior by encouraging the ventila-
tion of pent-up emotions.
It is a myth that if you ask a
person about suicidal intentions that
vou will encourage the person tocom-
mit suicide. Don't be afraid to use
won Is like "suicide "die or "kill "
ECU Counseling Center
BedirectDovouwantto die?"
or "Are you thinking about killing
yourself?" If the answer is "yes
�Listen. Demonstrate thatyou
understand the person's feelings
without minimizing them.
�Encourage the person to seek
professional help. Recognize your
own limitations in being a helper.
� Remove, or encourage the
person to give up anything that
could be immediately lethal, sueh
as pills, weapons, etc.
If vou discover that the person
has a plan or timetable for suicide,
take the intentseriouslv. Don'tleave
the person alone and take the per-
son to or call for help.

The typical viewer has been

Her first suggestion: Just recog-

Robin, a Seattle-based lecturer

about the spurious connection be-
tween monetary wealth and mate-

"Your Money or Your Life �

flash!�dollars don't guarantee ful-
fillment, and that, for many Ameri-
cans, money-making comes at far
too great a cost.
At times, so does TV, Robin
adds during a recent interview.
"There's too much passivity in
just the "act" of blind-gazing at the
tube by the hour, but also that famil-
iar non-decision to watch in the first
There's an old slogan "time is

Soccer team
vents frustration
By Chip Hudson
Staff Writer
The East Carolina women's
soccer team traveled to Raleigh
on Sunday to take on the N.C.
State Wolfpack in a conference
match. The Pirates "Were coming
off of a difficult loss to Fayetteville
and were taking no prisoners.
ECU dominated the match from
beginning to end as they began to
play to their full potential. East
Carolina rolled to a 3-0 victory.
State managed to hold the Pi-
rates scoreless for the first 30 min-
utes of the match even though
ECU was pressuring the State
goalie. Then, at the 33 minute
mark, forward Kellie Troy re-
ceived a pass from Missy Cone
and knocked the ball into the back
of the net for a 1-0 Pirate lead.
Although this goal led to some
intense play from the Pirates, they
were unable to score again before
the half.
In the second half, East Caro-
lina continued to demonstrate
tremendous ball skills as their
passing knifed through the State
defense. Fourteen minutes into the
second half, ECU fullback Missy
Cone scored her first goal of the
year on an assist from Jennie
Haines. She fired a shot from 20
yards out that the State goal-
keeper never had a chance to save
and the tally gave ECU a 2-0 lead.
Nine minutes after that,
Jennie Haines got in on the scor-
ing herself, as she took a pass
from stopper Jennifer Poppe and
scooted down the right side of the
penalty area and fired in another
goal for the Pirates. At this point
in the game, ECU relaxed a little
bit but continued to work passes
through the offensive end of the
field. The Pirates were unable to
score again.
"This is the best that I have
ever seen this team play in prac-
tice-or a game ECU's sweeper
Jodi Rittenhouse said following
the game.
Coach Doug Silver agreed by
saying, "We were able to keep a
sustained effort for a full 90 min-
utes today Faith Burnett and
Casey Carter dominated the State
forwards and refused to let them
attack our goal
The Pirates' next game is

Ruggers recoup from trip
By W.W. Ellis
Staff Writer
East Carolina traveled north
to test their mettle against two
powerful Potomac Rugby Union
sides. Maryland, ranked fourth
in the pre-season, is a probable
opponent on the way to the Terri-
torial Championships. Since
Maryland defeated the Pirates
54-8 last spring, this fall match
was an opportunity to see how
far the ECU ruggers have pro-
gressed. George Mason would be
the other tough match.
Maryland got all they could
handle from an excited ECU team
which had two big handicaps.
First, they had to believe. Second,
they had to rise to a faster, more
intense style of play than of that
found in the South. Eventually
they did , and ECU dominated
the game , but it was too late.
Maryland scored twice about
20 minutes into the game and
went up 10-5. The Pirates made
tactical and mental adjustments
which worked. At the half, they
trailed only by five on the strength
of a try by Andy Horrocks. An-
other score by Sean Miller was
As the second half began, the
Pirates knew they were even with
their opponents. They spent vir-
tually the entire second half in
Maryland's end but could not
score. Twice, they seemed to have
the necessary touch down but it
was not to be. Both were denied.
In the B game, Maryland fell
by the identical 10-5 score. Again,
ECU had tries disallowed and
only Matt Snyder's first score for
ECU went onto the board. Again,
the Pirate ruggers found them-
selves rising to the occasion but
not rising high enough.
On Sunday, the ruggers trav-
eled to play another strong
Potomac Union side, George Ma-
son. Weakened by injuries, the
Pirates fell 19-10. The pattern was
much the same. The Pirates started
slow and then could not catch up
against a very experienced side
which bent but did not break.
George Mason went up 7-3
very quickly as the Pirates settled
down with five new players. The
Pirate score came on a Rich Moss
penalty kick. After regrouping,
the Pirates played Mason even
for the rest of the half.
The second half saw another
Mason score but the Pirates got it
back with a Chris tried converted
by Moss. The 12-10 score sug-
gested the Pirates might pull this
one out.
However, the battering re-
ceived in the Maryland game
began to take its toll as the Pirates
ran out of steam. Mason got an-
other score to win pulling away.
The B Team salvaged the road
trip as they soundly thumped
Mason's second side 14-0. Despite

Gillick planning to retire as
Toronto's general manager
TORONTO (AP)�After tak-
ing a couple of days off to reflect,
general manager Pat Gillick will
go about the business of break-
ing up the Blue Jays again.
That's fine with Gillick be-
cause he has done it before.
Gillick says 1994 will be his
last as GM with Toronto. Maybe
he waited one year too long.
Think of what a perfect end-
ing it would have been for him
following Joe Carter's stunning
chree-run homer off beleaguered
Mitch Williams in Game 6 Satur-
day night to give Toronto an 8-6
win over Philadelphia and a sec-
ond straight World Series title.
The Blue Jays beat Atlanta in
six games in the Series last sea-
son and some of the key players
were Dave Winf ield, David Cone,
Jimmy Key and Tom Henke. But
all opted to sign as free agents
and the Blue Jays ended up with
12 new faces in 1993.
"There are probably five vet-
erans who won't be back Gillick
said of next year's team.
Gillick rolled up his sleeves
last winter and went to work. He
signed Paul Molitor as a free
agent to replace Winfield as the
DH. All Monitor did was win the
World Series MVP, going 12 for
24 with two homers and eight
Molitor, 37, was second to
Jon Olerud in batting at .332 with
22 homers and 111 RBIs Molitor
also had 211 hits and scored 121
Rickey Henderson led off the
ninth with a walk from Williams
in Game 6 and after Devon White
flied out. Molitor kept the Blue
Jays going with a single before
Carter joined Bill Mazerowki as
the only player to end the Series
with a home run.
Gillick also signed Dave
Stewart as a free agent, acquired
Henderson on July 31 and traded
for Tony Fernandez on June 11.

we have been getting and we start

mistakes, we will win football
games Logan said Monday at his
weekly press conference.
The Pirates were penalized 12
times for 92 yards and had costly
turnovers in Saturday's 24-16 loss
to Southern Mississippi. Logan
knows that can't happen this week
if East Carolina is to be successful
against Virginia Tech.
"Until they can start to make
split-second decisions better offen-
sively, defensively and on the kick-
ing game, we're not going to win
Logan said. "We can't continue to
get 15-yard penalties on every punt

you have to decide not to block the
man in the back. So afar we're not
making those kind of decisions

North Carolina (7-2,4-2) was

the game. North Carolina
dropped to No. 18 and slipped
into third place in the ACC.

Fernandez, who struggled early
in the season with the Mets, had
nine RBIs against the Phillies to
set a record for a shortstop.
Toronto's rise to the top of
baseball started on Dec. 5, 1990,
when Gillick sent Fred McGriff
and, ironically, Fernendez to San
Diego for Carter and second
baseman Roberto Alomar. It's
possible Gillick acquired two fu-
ture Hall of Famers in one trade.
In a seemingly minor move
at the time, Hillock dealt infielder
Mike Sharperson to Los Angeles
for Juan Guzman on Sept. 22,
1987. Guzman is 40-11 lifetime
for the Blue Jays and 5-5 in the
Gillick also sent Junior Felix,
Luis Sono and Ken Rivers to Cali-
fornia for White and two minor
league pitchers in 1990. White,
perhaps the best defensive cen-
ter fielder in baseball, had 12 hits
in the AL playoffs and added
seven more against the Phillies.
The Toronto GM also hired
manager Cito Gaston. That
turned out to be a pretty good
move, too.
It seems certain the Blue Jays
will not offer Henderson a con-
tract and baseball's all-time stolen
base leader might end up with the
The right side of the infield is
secure with Olerud (.363) at first
and Alomar at second. But
Fernandez and third baseman Ed
Sprague might be replaced.
White and Carter will be back
in the outfield, but there's a possi-
bility catcher Pat Borders will not
be back.
The Blue Jays expect their fu-
ture shortstop to be Alex Gonzalez
with Carlow Delgado catching.
The pitching staff was shaky
until mid-September and Hillock
needs some starters. Toronto will
exercise its option not to pick up
Jack Morris' contract and Stewart
is a year older. Pat Hentgen (19-9)
and Guzman (14-3) are the only
sure things.
Relievers Danny Cox, Mark
Eichhhorn and Al Leiter could be
gone along with starter-reliever
Todd Stottlemyre.
Phillies GM Lee Thomas and
Gillick will revamp their shaky
pitching staffs (81 runs combined
in the six games) and make some
other key changes. Baseball is like
that, now.
out and were forced to punt. Bill
Wilson punted from his own 25-
yard line and it would be returned
to the Buc 40-yard line.
USM would then receive help
on third down. Cornerback,
Emanuel McDaniel was called for
pass interference on 3rd-and-ll.
Quarterback Kevin Bentley
would pass the Eagles to the Buc
one-yard line to set up Chris
Buckhalter's one-yard TD run.
The extra-point tied the score and
the Golden Eagles never looked
USM's running back Barry
Boyd took a 31-yard run into the
end zone with 18 seconds remain-
ing in the third and Johnny
Lomoro's point after made the
score 17-10.
And suddenly it turned gray
for the Pirates. ECU took the next
possession on their own 9-yard
line and on 3rd-and-17,
Mattison's pass went through the
hands of Jerris McPhail and it
was intercepted at the Buc 8-
yard line. Two plays la ter Howard
McGee scampered those eight
yards for a touchdown. Lomoro's
kick would open the lead to 24-

down faster and overcame adver-

might be disappointing, the
ruggers don't feel that way.

son for ECU. The PAT was

Holcomb was forced to throw
an incomplete pass. The score

For just the second time this
year, the Pirates got on the board
first. Holcomb connected on a
41-yard field to give the Pirates
a three to nothing lead.
Lomoro connected on a 50-

half. The Golden Eagle defense

ECU's leading rusher, gained
74 yards rushing.
ECU's first touchdown

Mattison to McPhail with 4:52
