Students urged to
party responsibly

Greenville City Police and
ECU Campus Police are planning
a regular weekend for this Hal-
Students are encouraged to
go out Saturday night instead of
Sunday, although extra police will
be on duty both nights.
Major Simonowich, Green-
ville City police officer said, "We
have planned i normal Saturday
night only with extra man power
to compensate for the extra
"The streets will not be
blocked off unless the sidewalks
get too crowded and the situation
becomes unsafe
Simonowich reminds stu-
dents that all la ws will be enforced
and all students drinking in pub-
lic will be asked to hand over their
drinks and may be asked to leave.
Officers will also be patrol-
ling the areas leading to down-
town to check students on their
way downtown.
Public Safety officer Keith
Knox said, "We'll prepare for the
worst and hope for the best, like
last year
The ECU Major Events Com-
mittee is planning Midnight Mad-
ness including free food, karioke,
movies and games as an alcohol-
free alternative on Saturday night.
Admission is free from 9 p.m. until
2a.m. at Mendenhall Student Cen-
Knox "encourage(s) all stu-
dents to drink responsibly, go
about in groups of three or more,
avoid isolated areas and plan ac-
tivities in advance so you don't
end up anywhere by yourself
The Student Government
Association is also encouraging
students to celebrate on Saturday
night instead of Sunday because
at 12 a.m. Sunday morning, it's
Oct. 31 anyway.
SGA President Keith Dyer
reminds students that "if this
Halloween goes well, that's two
years in a row we will have had a
safe Halloween. That's the key to
keeping Halloween here. Students
need to remember this and try to
party responsibly
The SGA will be providing
extra security downtown. Stu-
dents will be patrolling the area
and informing police of emergen-
cies, in order to prevent fights
from escalating to the level of the
fight at the Syracuse game, and to
get help to emergencies faster.
Most of the clubs and bars
downtown are planning regular
weekends as well. They will be
open and serving alcohol, but they
are not necessarily catering to

In an effort to alleviate
problems of past years, ECU's
Student Government Associa-
tion (SGA), ECU administrators
and Greenville officials have
joined forces to provide a safe,
happy, Halloween weekend for
the entire community.
"I know we can rely on
students as we have in the past
Greenville Mayor Nancy
Jenkins said at a city hall meet-
ing Wednesday. "And, with the
cooperation between the stu-
dents, the downtown owners
and the police departments, it's
going to be a happy, joyous
Halloween. We don't anticipate
anything but a safe Halloween
However, police officials
are prepared to handle unreli-
able students, and are collabo-
rating with members of Down-
town Area Restaurants and Tav-
erns (DART) to ensure safe con-
ditions. According to the head
of DART and owner of The Elbo,
Kirby Bryson, downtcwn will
hold its Halloween festivities
Saturday night, rather than Sun-
day. Restaurants and taverns
will hold normal hours Sunday.
Jenkins said the only nega-
tive feeling she received from
the community was the thought
that perhaps such a large num-
ber of police officers was in-
"I don't think the students
see it that way. I think they see
it as safety to protect everyone
Jenkins said.
SGA plans to have a 10-
member student patrol for both
Saturday and Sunday nights.
These individuals will be
dressed in black T-shirts with
white SGA lettering. Their job
will be to summon police in the
event of an emergency, such as
a fight or vandalism.
"We're afraid that these
people will be seen as 'tattle-
tales but they're not said SGA
president Keith Dyer. "The fo-
cus is not to reprimand but
to come and inform police
SGA recently conducted
campus speaking engage-
ments by each SGA officer re-
garding Halloween and cam-
pus safety. Dyer said these
seemed to fare successfully,
and students exhibited posi-
tive attitudes.
"We've got the best po-
lice department around, and
I think they've done an excel-
lent job in planning said
Greenville City Manager Ron
Kimball. "We've got a great
university and a great student
body and an excellent asso-
ciation downtown. We've got
some great cooperation here.
"But we don't want to
get complacent about the
situation, and we don't want
to think that just because
we've done all this planning
that everything is going to go
beautifully Kimball said.

Student attacked Monday near Joyner
My books are WHERE?
By Maureen Rich
Assistant News Editor
Picture this: Greenville,
1954. A lonely ECU student wan-
ders the dusty, yellowed stacks of
Joyner Library searching for that
one book that will give her paper
the A grade (or even a B-) it
deserves. Alas, no luck. Destroyed
and frustrated, she works with
what her meager library can af-
ford her�a few books published
in 1902, an occasional newspaper
dipping, but everyone knows how
unreliable fzose can be
Takthis article, for ex-
ample. Already, we have a typo.
The first line should read the year
7993, not f?54. Although the cir-
cumstancis can be applied to both
time periods, it seems.
In 1954, when Joyner Library
opened its doors for the first time,
the library was thought to be in-
adequate for its 2,400 students. A
few touch-ups here and there have
done little to change that consen-
sus. The difference now is that
ECU students have the opportu-
nity to demand a change.
"If a person is willing to ac-
cept that a library is the heart of
any university or college, and if
we have a growing institution that
is working very hard at getting
better and better, then it means a
heart that's going to be capable of
supporting those activities said

For the fourth time this
month, an ECU student was as-
saulted and robbed on campus
while walking alone in an iso-
lated area Monday night. This
time, assailants attacked a female
at 11:35 p.m. This is the earliest
attack so far, and the first assault
on a female.
ECU police continue to urge
students to use common sense, as
the assailants have not been
caught yet. Walking alone, or even
in pairs, is a great risk to personal
safety. Despite repeated warn-
ings, however, students continue
to believe themselves to be invin-
"I had one student ask me,
'What if I don't want to give up
my property? said ECU police
Lt. Keith Knox. "It's that attitude
that might result in further harm
to the student. You have to ask
yourself, what's more important,
my life or my property?"
The fifth victim was accosted
while walking alone from the
parking lotbehind Joyner Library
to her residence hall. The alleged
incident took place near the out-
side stairwell located at the south-
east comer of the Joyner Library
The victim was slightly in-
jured in the facial area when
thrown to the ground during a
struggle for her wallet. Her wal-
let, containing $30, was stolen,
according to police reports.
The assailants were de-
scribed as two black males, who
were last seen running toward
Slay and Umstead residence halls.
"Safety and security is an
issue that will benefit students,
faculty and visitors � everyone
on campus Knox said. "We're
doing everything we can, but
some students have the mentality
that these individuals have guns
only to scare people. It's an atti-
tude like that that leads to some-
one getting seriously hurt
ECU police continue to cau-
tion individuals about walking
alone or taking shortcuts across
"Walk in groups of three or
more, and don't let someone stray
from your group Knox said.
Police advise staying in well-lit
areas, and along well-traveled
streets. "Plan as few trips as pos-
sible Knox said. "And use Pirate
Knox said plans to put up
signs indicating Pirate Ride stops
are a possibility for the future.
Unfortunately, some indi-
viduals have abused the extra
security measures that ECU
police have provided students.
Security escorts should be re-
quested for emergencies only,
and should not be considered a
taxi service.
Frivolous calls made by
students who simply do not
want to walk in poor weather
conditions inconvenience offic-
ers who could be providing se-
curity for others in real need,
Knox said.
When patrol cars are un-
available, officers will escort in-
dividuals on-foot, Knox said.
ECU police ask that any-
one with information regard-
ing the past assaults and rob-
beries call Crime Stoppers at

ECU students have filled
10,000 bags of sand during this
month. No, they were not try-
ing to stop a flood. The students
were participating in the Ronald
McDonald House's annual
"Light A Luminary" fund-
The project involves fill-
ing white paper bags with sand
and candles. The bags, to be lit
on Christmas Eve, will be sold
to neighborhoods, churches and
individuals. Generally, the lit
candles will burn throughout
the night.
Last year, the Ronald
McDonald House sold 3,400
kits. This year, they intend to
sell 10,000 kits.
"We hope to sell three
times as many kits as last year
said Stephanie Roberson, pub-
lic relations director.
Due to the huge number of
bags that needed to be filled,
there was a tremendous need
for volunteers. Many of the vol-
unteers came from ECU and
from the Student Volunteer Pro-
gram headed by Judy Baker.
"The volunteers have been
a tremendous help said Joylyn
Hannahs, Ronald McDonald
House public relations intern
and ECU student. "We are well
ahead of schedule, thanks to
their efforts
According to Baker, the
volunteers from her program
were primarily responsible for
filling the bags. The volunteer
program set up workdays on
Tuesdays and Thursdays. Be-
tween 30-40 volunteers showed
up for each of the sessions
throughout this month.
"It's always one of our fa-
vorite projects Baker said.
"We never have trouble finding
Baker said the volunteer
program always brings stu-
dents, who don't know one an-
other closer together in "accom-
plishing an important mission
Hannahs said that stu-
dents from Alpha Delti Pi, I
Gamma Sigma Sigma, Delta p
Zeta, Pi Lambda Phi, ECU
health classes, as well as stu-
dents from the volunteer pro-
gram, have played important
roles in helping with the project. �
"The students have rallied
behind the project to assemble
the kits said Hannahs.

English professor focuses on Dracula
Defacing, propaganda upset students
Anti-semitic fliers stuffed in textbooks about Nazi war
criminals and the defacing of a black theology textbook tempo-
rarily put students and professors on edge at Cleveland State
University. Both incidents took place in late September at the
university bookstore. Someone slipped fliers containing "anti-
Holocaust" propaganda into copies of Prosecuting Nazi War Crimi-
nals, which was written by a faculty member, Alan Rosenbaum,
and used in a philosophy course, reported the Campus Marketplace,
a newsletter of the National Association of College Stores. In the
other incident, the only copy of For All My People, a textbook for a
black theology class, had three chapters cut out and a dark liquid
stained the top edges of the pages. The liquid reportedly looked
like blood, although it was not officially identified as such.
First Amendment focus of conference
Concerned about political correctness? First Amendment
issues on college campuses was scheduled to be the subject of an
Oct. 21 interactive videoconf erence at the State University of New
York at Albany. Panel members talked about hate speech, diver-
sity and controversial newspaper articles in a debate moderated
by Charlayne Hunter-Gault, national correspondent for "The
MacNeilLehrer News Hour Almost 100 colleges and universi-
ties subscribed to the videoconference, sponsored by the Public
Broadcasting Service's Adult Learning Satellite Service (ALSS)
and SUNY. The videoconference was beamed via satellite di rectly
to participating colleges for a $350 fee for non-ALSS members and
$250 for ALSS members.
Low SAT scores, 'simplified' school books linked
Declining verbal scores in the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
can be attributed to simplified language in school books, a study
by a Cornell University sociologist has found. SAT verbal scores
began to fall in the 1960s, when the first Baby Boomers began
taking SATs, dropped for 16 years and have remained low ever
since. "The major 'simplifications' of American school books
came in the 1950s � not because the average American child had
suddenly become dumber, but because of changes in educational
philosophy said Donald Hayes, who developed a computer
system for measuring the difficulty of texts. "Texts were simpli-
fied to increase 'success' in reading, recognizing that this would
be at the expense of a text's 'challenge Hayes analyzed 766 texts
from 1860 to 1991. The National Enquirer and Sports Illustrated
ranked minus 10.3.

He strikes fear in the hearts
of moviegoers everywhere. He
suck?, blood, sleeps in a casket
and is afraid of crosses. He is
Dracula, Prince of Darkness, and
he is the subject of an upcoming
book by an ECU English profes-
Dr. James Holte is watch-
ing Dracula movies, not to get
into the Halloween spirit, but to
gather information for his forth-
coming book, Dracula in the Dark.
The book will be a study of film
adaptations of the legendary
vampire first popularized by
Irish novelist Bram Stoker nearly
a century ago.
Stoker's novel Dracula is
based largely on the legend of
Vlad the Impaler, Holte said.
Dracula differs, however, from
Vlad in that Dracula takes place
in a Victorian setting and the
historical Vlad lived in medieval
Holte selected Dracula as
his subject because of the popu-
larity of the vampire in movies.
Dracula is central in many of the
known 500 vampire movies and
is always a favorite with his stu-
dents in his film courses.
"Whereas Frankenstein
and the Mummy come and go,
Dracula is always popular. Each
generation creates characters
that appeal to its own needs.
Dracula features eroticism and
sex appeal. He differs from the
mechanistic monster that is Fran-
kenstein Holte said.
Dracula was first seen in
silent films of the 1910s. Bela
Lugosi's immortal portrayal in
the 1930s popularized the char-
acter, creating the image of the
vampire that is still copied to-
Other Draculas range from
the British series starring Chris-
topher Lee, two German
Nosferatu films, a Japanese ver-
sion with Mori Kishida, an Afri-
can-American Blacula and even
an Abbot and Costello parody.
"The Dracula character has
a very long film history, dating
back to the beginning of the me-
dium Holte said. Perhaps the
best known recent screen
Dracula is that of Francis Ford
Coppola's 1992 version.
Holte said Coppola's
Dracula lost some of the edge
that earlier films had because the
character was sexy and debonair
instead of frightening. "He's
more romantic than the Victo-
rian original and much less ter-
rifying. He gets the girl and
goes to heaven in the end.
"The main problem with
the film is that it turns Dracula
into a kind of 'Beauty and the
Beast' rather than a film of ter-
ror. I guess I'm more interested
in the scary Dracula than the
lover Dracula Holte said.
Holte has written two pre-
vious books, The Ethnic I, ana-
lyzing autobiographies of im-
migrants to America, and The
Conversion Experience in
America, dealing with recollec-
tions of dramatic religious epi-
sodes. Both were published by
Greenwood Press, which will
also publish Dracula in the Dark.
The book is scheduled for
release in 1997, to coincide with
the 100th anniversary of the
publication of Stoker's novel.

Chapter 9
I was in Burt's, downing a few
brews when the kid walked in. It
didn't really surprise me when he
walked through that door � like
father, like son, right? That is if you
believed the kid's story, which the
�jury was still out on.
The kid looked like a ghost had
�walked over his grave � or maybe
.like the ghost himself. For a 22-year-
old, he looked not a day under forty.
He was as pale as a mid-moming
3iaze, his eyes were bloodshot and
!he walked with a distinct slump in
his shoulders. .s he passed through
the red neon of the Bud sign over the
pool table, he instantly reminded
me of Al. I shook my head, trying to
dear it like a dog tries to dry itself off.
He planted himself on the stool
beside me with a thud like a stack of
newspapers hitting the sidewalk.
"Gimme a beer" he said, never look-
ing up from the cigarette and glass-
strewn floor. Burt looked at me, not
making a move until I nodded my
head. Kid looked like he could use a
beer � hell, it sure couldn't hurt
him, not in his condition.
As Burt slid the beer in front of
the kid, he moved a couple cf feet
down the bar. Burt knew I was look-
ing for Al and couldn't help but be
interested. I didn't blame him � Al
had done a lot for Burt's. That that
wasn't important, only the kid mat-
tered now.
"What's up, kid?" I said, down-
ing another swallow of beer. He
didn't answer me right away, just
kept staring into his glass like it
would tell his fortune like some side-
show gypsy. I'd had enough nights
with Al to know that it wouldn't
work; the problems only got deeper
and deeper. I'd almost thought he
hadn't heard me when he spoke in a
voice as low as the foghorn that kept
the boats off the rocks of Scotch Har-
"I don't understand it, Mick
This was the first time the kid had
used my first name, so I knew he was
in trouble. "Why'd he leave? Was it
because of me? Sometimes I wish I'd
never found out he was my father.
My life was so much simpler�now
it's turned upside-down and I don't
know what to do The kid downed
The Brewery.
A place where dreams are made and unmade, lives are turned upside
down and a drink is a drink. A place where you kept one hand on your wallet
and one eye on the guy across the street. Basically, a place
where a man can forget his troubles and drown his
sorrows for a ivhile.
Mick Hammered liad sworn never to set foot
in the Brewery again. Setting out to find his old
friend Al Cohol, Mick finds himself up to his neck
?V� in the seedy and fermented world of the Brewery.
Ss & EveryTfiursdayinTlie East Carolinian, Mick
unll meet a character who will expose Al in a whole neiv light. When it'sfinally
over and done with, Mick�and the reader�will be faced with one of the most
important questions either lias rverfaced.

tioned for another. I nodded for Burt
to go ahead � the kid might need
"Johnny Red, let me tell you a
few things about Al I figured if he
was drinking that fast, maybe I
should use his first name too. It might
make things go a little easier for him.
"First of all, it's not your fault. Blam-
ing yourself is only gonna make it
worse. Al was the way he is long
before you came along. Take my
word for it
The kid was looking at me with
a wet look in his eyes. What I didn't
need was him causing a scene so I
kept going to keep his attention.
"You're not alone, either, kid. From
what I hear, about 12-15 percent of
all kids your age go through this
same thing. Letmeguesswhatyou're
feeling. How about anger? Guilt?
Shame? Ring any bells?"
The kid whipped his head up,
looking at me like a deer looks at a
pair of headlights. He'd stopped feel-
ing sorry for himself, that was one
thing. "That's right, kid, I know
what's it like. You think that if you
behave a certain way, everything
will turn out all right. Hate to break
it to you, kid, but you got no control
over it. Al's gonna do what he's
gonna do
"Heck, I've even heard that kids
like you are more likely to use other
drugs. They're more apt to attempt
and commit suicide, more likely to
have complusive behavior � this is
no small thing, Red. Don'teven think
you're alone in this
The kid sighed and stood up
from the bar stool. "Maybe you're
right, Hammered. I guess I still got a
lot of thinking to do. I'm gonna go
home for a little bit
"Good idea, kid I threw my
arm around his shoulder and led
him out of Burt's. As I watched him
walk down the street, I lit a cigarette
just as a huge 18-wheeler pulled up.
This burly guy wearing jeans, a
denim shirt and a baseball cap with
Budweiser stenciled on it jumped
out from the cab.
"Hey, buddy. Where the hops
am I?" he bellowed.

Clinton delivers revamped health care plan
sisting the "bottom line" on
health-care reform has not
changed, President Clinton
Wednesday released a retooled
version of his plan that puts off
the guarantee of universal cov-
erage for a year and sets limits
on federal subsidies for medical
The president and his wife
and adviser, Hillary Rodham
Clinton, delivered their 1,300-
page Health Security Plan to a
cheering crowd of legislators in
the Capitol's historic Statuary
Hall Wednesday.
Clinton laid down a
straightforward challenge: "Just
one simple request: I ask that
before the Congress finishes its
work next year, you pass and I
sign a bill that will actually guar-
antee health security to every
citizen of this great country
He said his basic goal re-
mains unchanged � guarantee-
ing a standard set of benefits to
every American, calling it "my
bottom line
"When it is over, we must
have achieved comprehensive
health care security for all Ameri-
cans or the endeavor will not
have been worth the effort
Clinton said.
Still, bowing to the politi-
cal reality of the long debate
ahead, Clinton now hopes to
ensure every American is guar-
anteed a standard set of benefits
by the start of 1998.
And trying to balance com-
peting demands for more gener-
ous health coverage against calls
for tighter cost controls, Clinton
is proposing to expand benefits
in some areas while slowing the
phase-in of others. He also has
agreed to cap subsidies for small
businesses and low-income
Mrs. Clinton, signaling the
long road ahead, called the leg-
islation "a framework off of
which to work" and urged legis-
lators to subject all competing
health proposals before Congress
to the "highest level of scrutiny
She expressed hope for a
"vigorous, honest debate that
sheds light and not just heat
"This will be, for the next
month, an opportunity for all of
us to work together to go beyond
politics as usual, to make it clear
to the American people that this
president and this Congress hear
them and are committed to solv-
ing their problems in a very real
way Mrs. Clinton said.
House Speaker Thomas
Foley, D-Wash said Statuary
Hall, where five presidents were
inaugurated, "is a fitting place
for the inauguration of the
Clinton Health Security Act
Offering a preview of the
battles ahead, however, House
Minority Leader Bob Michel,
D-Ill cautioned that there are
"substantive and profound
policy differences" over how
to proceed and that today's cer-
emony was "just the beginning
of a long, tortuous process
"What we owe the people
is a promise that we will not
worry about authorship and
that we will work together on
a bipartisan basis for what is
good for Americans said Sen-
ate Republican Leader Bob
Clinton hopes to use the
launch of his revised plan to
regain some of the momentum
he lost amid a flurry of criticism
and foreign-policy distractions
over the past month.
Doctor used untested drug
NEW YORK (AP) � A can-
cer researcher supplied an experi-
mental drug that was clandestinely
used on 16 terminally ill brain can-
cer patients, The Daily News re-
ported today.
Dr. Peter Wienvk allowed
"leftover" interleukin 2, a drug ap-
proved for treating kidney cancer
patients, to be injected into 16 pa-
tients' brain tumors at Montefiore
Hospital in 1987, The Neivs said.
Wierruk, 54, had been chair-
man of the hospital's oncology de-
partment, but was demoted when
his illicit research was exposed by
a federal investigation.
At the time of the brain ex-
periment, Wierruk had approval
from the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration only to use the drug
on kidney cancer patients, the pa-
per said.
Wierruk "knew these termi-
nally ill patients would die soon
without treatment, and that this
promising experimental treatment
was their last hope the doctor
said in court papers.
Hospital lawyer Nadia AdJer
said Montefiore was unaware of
the experiment and emphasized
there was no evidence the drug
hurt the terminally ill patients.
She said all 16 patients prob-
ably have died, but conceded the
hospital had lost track of them.
The patients had consented
to the experimental drug, TheNews
said. But they were not told that
the FDA had not approved of the
drug for brain cancers.
Wierruk finally confessed to
his illicit experiment in May 1992,
but struck a deal with prosecutors
last June. The charges are to be
dropped in December if he gave
full details of the testing and

viewed by Tlte News. He is still

Gunman angry over Bosnia
� i amed and cowered
under tables as the man opened fire
wildly with a pistol Tuesday night
in the hotel coffee shop overlooking
the Nile River. He also wounded an
American, an Italian and a Svriah.
The shooting came as Egyp-
tian tourism was beginning to re-
cover from losses as high as 80 per-
cent brought on by a bloody cam-
paign by Islamic extremists to topple
the secular government.
An Interior Ministry state-
ment said the gunman, identified as
Saber Farhat Abu el-Ela of Cairo,
confessed to firing with a gun that
belonged to his father. It made no
mention of a motive but said Abu
el-fci was dismissed from the army
as mentally unfit.
The government-run daily Al
Gomhuria said Abu el-Ela told po-
lice that he was avenging the kill-
ings of Muslim children, the rape of
women and the destruction of
mosques in Bosnia.
Al-Ahram, also a government
paper, quoted witnesses as saying
he shouted "God is great and slo-
gans about Bosnia. If true, it could
suggest a link with the wave of
Muslim extremist violence that has
plagued Egypt.
But 1st Lt. Hany Fawzi of the
nearby Garden City police station
said the report that he shouted slo-
gans was unconfirmed.
Some of the victims were law-
yers attending a convention on pe-
nal law at the Semiramis Inter-Con-
tinental Hotel, where the shooting
occurred about 1 p.m.
The U.S. Embassy identified
the dead Americans as Coby
Hoffman, in his 40s, and Robert
Guidi. Embassy officials said both
men were from New Jersey but had
no further details.
They refused to identify the
wounded American, citing U.S. pri-
vacy laws. He reportedly was shot
in the hip.
In Paris, the French victim was
identified as Fernand Boulan, 54, a
former dean of law and political
science at the University of Aix-en-
Boulan, mayor of
Chateauneuf-le-Rouge near
Marseille, was said to be attending
the convention.
The wounded Italian, identi-
fied as Luigi Daga, 46, an Italian
Justice Ministry official attending
the conference, was in a coma with
a head wound.

not be confirmed, was in serious

Lefties accident-prone, backward geeks
Just recently, a friend of
mine brought a problem to my
attention. He said that it is dis-
criminatory that there are so few
desks in GCB for left-handed
students. I told him that I had
never really thought about it
and I asked him if he was left-
handed. In fact, this friend is
right-handed but he still feels
that this lack of lefty desks is
unfair. So, here's the article that,
apparently, I should have writ-
ten last week.
I am left-handed and, until
my friend mentioned it, I didn't
feel slighted in the least by the
right-handed world in which I
live. Since our conversation, I
have thought a lot about how
left-handedness is more than a
matter of which hand a person
writes with; it is also a hindrance
in a world that unconsciously
discriminates against lefties.
Left-handers or, as my fa-
ther says, southpaws, make up
10 percent of the population.
According to a 1991 issue of
Health magazine, left-handers
are more prone to autoimmune
diseases and are more likely to
have been born prematurely. In
fact, a 1991 study provided evi-
dence that lefties die an average
of nine years earlier than right-
handers. This nine-year dispar-
ity has been questioned but evi-
dence does seem to support find-
ings that left-handed people
don't live as long as right-
One of the reasons for this
variation in mortality rates is
that left-handers tend to be more
accident prone. In a world that
is designed primarily for the
right of hand, left-handedness
can sometimes be a health haz-
ard. If this sounds strange to
you, as it did to me�I am in a
state of denial because I simply
don't want to admit that my left-
handedness might lead to my
ultimate demise�then think
about this: Automobiles, espe-
cially stick shifts, are designed
for right-handers. There's a se-
rious potential for accidents
here. I drive a stick shift and just
ask anyone who's ever ridden
with me; I can't stay off of those
Until my friend, we'll call
him Rob, told me that he was
troubled by the lack of left-
handed desks, I had been living
in a state of denial. I had sup-
pressed the oppression that I
have suffered all of my left-
handed life at the hands of the
Up until the early twenti-
eth century, left-handedness
was considered abnormal and
evil. Children who showed a
tendency towards leftiness were
"educated out of it they were
forced to use their right hands.
After it became apparent that
this use of force could be psy-
chologically damaging, it was
discontinued, but the implica-
tions are still with us today.
When I first learned to
write, I wrote backwards. My
name looked like this:
" ARUAL It took me a long time
to learn to write "correctly" and
my family thought that I had
dyslexia. The truth of the matter
is that I was writing in a way
that is natural for lefties�from
right to left instead of from left
to right. I had to learn to write
unnaturally in order to write
I had to quit taking ballet
because I always did the steps
with the wrong feet. I moved
in the wrong direction. The
same was true of tennis; I was
impossible to teach because the
instructor couldn't understand
why, out of 10 students, I was
the only one who did every-
thing backwards. I held the
racquet in the wrong hand.
Even now I can't follow direc-
tions and I get lost on my way
home from campus. I really
can't find my way out of a pa-
per bag�I have no sense of
While these things may
not send me to an early grave
(I'm not going to kill myself
because I never learned how to
play tennis), I'm sure that
they've had an effect on my
psychological make- up. I think
that I internalized those no-
tions of "backwardness" and
"wrongness" that are linked to
left-handedness. I think that
using those green left-handed
scissors in kindergarten pre-
pared me to suffer.
While I'm still not too of-
fended that there aren't a whole
lot of left-handed desks in GCB
(I don't mind knocking elbows
with the right-handed major-
ity), I hope that at least this
column will provide support
to an accident prone minority.

Gun bans fail to focus on real problems
We all know about the ter-
rible rash of crimes on our cam-
pus in the past few weeks. By
the time that you read this, hope-
fully these criminals will have
been arrested. These incidents
bring home the point that our
criminal justice system is in need
of urgent reform.
The only solution to the
crime problem is to get the crimi-
nals off the street. We need more
police, more prisons and more
courts to handle the increased
Too many dangerous fel-
ons, like the young man accused
of killing James Jordan, are be-
ing released due to overcrowd-
This individual served less
than two years after perma-
nently disabling someone with
an ax blow to the head. People
this violent should never see the
streets again.
We need to recognize
crime for what it is: a war
against society. In war you do
not disarm your allies; instead,
you attack your enemy.
No other solution will
work. Simply banning guns will
not stop crime. We already have
gun control here; it is illegal to
have guns on campus. But for
some reason, even with the law,
these darn criminals just will
not obey the law.
Americans use guns almost
a million times a year to protect
themselves, their homes and
their loved ones from criminals.
Over 2,000 felons are killed and
8,000 to 16,000 wounded every
year by private citizens in self
defense (more than three times
as many as by the police).
Polls of criminals have re-
peatedly shown that most
avoided people they had con-
sidered robbing, because they
knew, or feared, that their vic-
tims were armed.
While gun control advo-
cates can point to studies which
suggest that gun control would
be effective, they cannot point
to a case where it has ever
brought about a reduction in
Instead, gun control has
often resulted in an increase in
crime, as criminals are give
free reign to prey upon a help-
less populace.
In 1976 Washington, D.C.
passed one of the most restric-
tive gun control laws in the
country; by 1982, violent crime
had risen 43, murders 14.
The national average for the
same period were 20 and 3,
One measure that has
worked is mandatory penal-
ties for using firearms during
a crime. In 1975, both Virginia
and South Carolina passed
such laws. In the next 11 years
Virginia's murder rate
dropped 38, South
Carolina's 41.
The fact of the matter is
that absolute gun control is
impossible. We cannot control

If we completely banned
guns, does anybody really be-
lieve that we could keep them
out of the hands of the en-

all aglow at the idea of stripping away
layers of clothes and lying in flower-cov-

To the Editor:
When I have to travel long distances away
from home, I carry a licensed 13-shot9mm pistol in my
car. On two separate occasions at rest stops on inter-
state highways, persons of dubious moral character
and personal hygiene have accosted me with knives
demanding money. When I produced a pistol instead
of my wallet, they became pacifist, world-class track
and field stars
. Lest you think that you and I stand at opposite
ends of the gun control spectrum, I agree that the NRA
goes overboard in maintaining that private citizens
should be permitted to purchase assault weapons
This "Joe Redneck to use your bigoted termi-
nology, hunts deer not to be "fierce" or to prove my
manhood, but rather because I prefer low-cholesterol
venison to the steroid-fed, flavor-enhanced beef we
get in stores.
Speaking of which, do you eat meat?Ever
seen the inside of a slaughterhouse? I guess you're
only a "Joe Redneck" if you kill your iiwn meat, huh?
I didn't realize that paying someone to hit a cow
between the eyes with a sledgehammer for me would
make me politically correct. If you know a humane
way to eat a deer without killing it first, let me know
and I'll quit hunting.

Overpopulation, destruction of crops,

Have you ever talked to a farmer who has not

To the Editor:
his Malmrose's portrayal of the university
as a "lefty commune" held hostage by "hellborn
feminists" is ridiculous, as is his profound ignorance
of the literary tradition he so caustically condemns
One might expect less rabid anti-intellectual-
ism from a college professor, particularly one from
the school of Art, considering the long liberal tradi-
tion in that field, but I guess there is no accounting for
tastes. Or is there? Malmrose prefers Garth Brooks to
Byron. Of course, Brook's "penetrating stanzas" are
much easier to deal with, particularly if you're not
the one being penetrated
Perhaps Mr. Malmrose believes that women
want to leave the workplace altogether, but I say it
is this mentality that sends the children of divorce
lawyers to camp in the Poconos every summer, not
"political correctness" or the quiche-cooking ten-
ured lesbian mind-control ninjas that exist only in
Malmrose's perverse imagination
.If Malmrose and his "brothers in arms" could
get a grip on something other than the "upright"
members of their anatomies, they might find that
they can think with their brains, too

I was troubled to read the Oct. 21 letter by Lee
Judge, program manager of the campus radio station
because Mr. Judge seems to strike out angrily and even
vindictively at several targets: The East Carolinian, Mark
Brett's Oct. 19 letter about ZMB, and previous coverage
of ZMB.
He claims that he was slandered he really means
libelled, I assume by The East Carolinian. If he can show
where the EC says anything that defames his character,
he should certainly point it out. He seems most upset at
Mr. Brett for having expressed an opposing viewpoint;
there is no libel involved in arguingforalternativemusic.
He claims that the EC ran this without having
interviewed anyone at ZMB. This is simply not true: if
you'll go back to the Oct. 7 article, you'll find it full of
quotes from Beth Arthur, manager of ZMB. Mr. Brett's
letter responds very specifically to her sta tements in tha t
On the question of alternative music, Mr. Judge is
confusing. To start, he defensively states that he has
several alternative pieces in his personal music collec-
tion. I fail to see what this has to do with programming
policy. And then he closes by hintingatsomethingto the
effect that he thinks ZMB should cater to popular taste.
So, is he for a popular format or not?
Traditionally, college radio stations have played
alternative music, so much so that "college music" has
become synonymous with "alternative BillboardMaga-
zine even carries a special chart for it, and, closer to
home, it's in the sta tion charter tha t it not compete with
commercial stations. In other words, it's not a question
of "what ECU students want to hear if most people
listen to WRDU, that doesn't mean that ZMB should
suddenly imita te RDU. They both have different func-
tions and survive because they fit thex niches.
Beyond this manifest confusion�which I find
troubling in itself for anyone who has taken composi-
tion, not to mention is program manager at a radio
station�I am deeply disturbed by the vindictiveness
Mr. Judge expresses toward Mr. Brett. This vindictive-
ness is perhaps best exemplified by a quick parentheti-
cal comment by Mr. Judge: "First of all Mr. Brett is (and

X-Men turn 30, don't age well
By Cliff Coffey
Staff Writer
TheX-Men have turned 30 (Holy
Cow!) and Marvel is making a big
deal about it, as they do with every-
thing anymore.
When Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
started the book, it had limited suc-
cess�just enough to keep it going.
The replacements came in just as the
comic was on it's last leg, living only
as a reprint title. Marvel had begun
reprinting old issues of the X-Men in
the new issues. Along came Len
Wein, Chris Claremont and Dave
Cockrum to save it. They were re-
sponsible for Giant Sized X-Men 7
,which introduced a new set of X-
Men. They wanted to replace the
the spark they needed.
QaremontandCockrum began
their stay on the X-Men with issue
94, the first new material to appear
on the title in a few years. Cockrum
left and John Byrne signed on as the
artist. Soon, the X-Men became the X-
Men, the comic renowned for not
only dramatic storylines, (such as
the infamous "Dark Phoenix" arc)
but also for a new standard of comic
art, crafted by Byrne and inker Terry
Austin. Byrne and Claremont took
the title from fledgling status to make
it the Lest-selling comic in the na-
larity lay in the continual sub-plot
concerning "mutanthysteria a race-
relations allegory wherein normal
humans feel threatened by stereo-
types of mutants as destructive and
evil. This hysteria was reinforced by
the actions of the X-Men's enemies,
particularly Magneto and the Broth-
erhood of Evil Mutants. In fact, a
popular facet of The X-Men is that of
a future wherein our heroes are
hunted and mutants in general are
killed through whatmaybedeemed
"ethnic (or genetic) cleansing.
Though Byrne left after 32 is-
sues, Claremont stayed on, taking
the book to new heights with such
fan-favorite artists as John Romita,
Jr, Marc Silvestri and Jim Lee. Until
issue279,Claremontstee'ed the lives
mental success. After brief writing
stints by Lee, Byrne and Fabian
Nacienza, the title was taken over by
Scott Lobdell, who currently scripts
their adventures.

The North Carolina Zoo has
its first new exhibit in almost a
decade. It is called the Sonora
Desert exhibit, and it features all
the animals and the habitats of the
desert in the
United States.
All of the ani-
mals were trans-
ported right from
the Sonora
Desert, and spe-
cies include
rattlesnakes, liz-
ards, road run-
ners and many
more. The 14,000
square foot facil-
ity cost 4.1 mil-
lion dollars and
took years of
planning. The
exhibit is covered
by a domed roof
made up of hun-
dreds of glass
panels to filter sunlight. The Sonora
exhibit features many different
habitats. Inhabitantsof the Sonoran
flatlands include animals such as
igaunas and roadrunners. The
Sagauro uplands areas feature the
tall Sagauro cactus and many other
types of cacti. One of the most in-
teresting animals seen in this habi-
tat is the gila monster, a grey and
pink poisonous foot-long lizard
that should be a crowd favorite.
Flying around the dome are
many different species of birds
common to the Sonoran desert. The
exhibit also has an area showing
the desert at night because many
popular species, including scor-
pions and bats, come out at night.
The zoo used a special computer-
ized lighting system that can re-
verse day and night for animals.
This was done since most desert
animals are only active at night
because of high
daytime tern

You know how a lot of girls look
sexy when they wear men's clothes?
Thaf s cool. But what about when
men wear women's clothes? My
nephew calls them sissies. Anyway,
Paul Plagens, singer for Greta, wears
dresses on stage. I think it makes a
swell statement
Greta's debut album, No Biting,
many facets. The group mashes to-
gether 50s, 60s and 70s pop with the
metal edge of the 80s and gets a
unique sound that changes, not un-
like a chameleon, on every track. That
Baer's power chords, Josh Gordon's
thumpamaniac bass and Scott
Carneghiontheskins�isdestined to
become known as the Greta sound!
Let me tell you, I was listening to
this album outside while playing
some roundball, and do you know
what I was able to do? I stood at the
foul line, threw the ball off the
backboard, caught it in mid-air and
BOOM! I slammed it! Now, it ain't
every CD that makes you do that! Of
course, my rim is only nine feet high.
Don't buy

Take Your Chances JV Worth a Try AivJ Definite Purchase
tune about the way we're reshaping
our world, is the first track, and what
and that's that. None of those
Fleetwood Macesque tunes that so
many alternative bands are
schlocking around on this album!
"Sleepyhead" is anything but a
lullaby. While the words are calm
and peaceful�"Good night
SleepyheadSleep tightinyour bed
Tomorrow is another dayWhere
you can be anything youwanttobe
So goodnightSleepyhead"�the
music is actually the type of thing that
would rouse most folks from a deep
slumber. Crashboombangljammin
I mean, any drummer who idolized
Kiss's Peter Cris, is OK in my book!
"Insomnia" moves, shakes and
thunders with its fast, heavy self; in
short GO GO GO! And what about
"Nature?" "This tune hits home like a
sausagepie: "Mother You'redy ing
I can hear youSoftly cryingAnd I
feelSo ashamedCause I know I'm

with "Off the Slug a hot number
that utilizes dirty-wordies to talk
about the angst, the drama, the psy-
chosis thatdrives the American male:
"Nobody can call him a queerHe's
got abig fat belly and it's full of beer
He's going to prove to the world that
he's not afraid You're not a real true
man unless you're getting laid So
sad, so true in this image-laden ma-
cho man's world.
Greta jams. I jam. If you jam, we
can jam together to Greta. It's about
being a man, man, and I think that's
why he wears a dress, because even
though the album is loaded with the
hypocrisies forced upon us by the
white patriarchal society, it addresses
the duality of humanity; Greta
adresses both sides of sexuality. We
are all Yin and Yang and we are
Greta's message.

Annette: A Musical

Look here. If I open up a boxed
set and the CD jewel boxes are pink
and green, I know I'm in for a good
time. Sure! Anyway, what are the
last name? Right! F-U-N! And fun is
what the Annette Funicelio boxed
set, Annette: A Musical Reunion with
America's Girl Next Door, is all about
Ithinkweallknowwho Annette
is. She's the only Mouseketeer per-
sonally signed by Walt Disney. She
was the essence of the Mickey Mouse
Club, receiving more fan mail than
Cubby, Darlene, Jimmy, Bobby and
Spanky combined! Wow! And guys
even proposed to her through the
mail! Wowsers!
But you can get all that swell
information and more in the nifty 44-
page book that comes in the two-CD
set. I know what you care about the
music. And boy howdy, whatneato-
keeno m usic it is! The songs are about
lifeandloveandhappiness and youth
and golly! They're so optimistic! I'm
OK, you're OK
The first track is "Tall Paul a
nutty little wholesome love song
about this really cool guy that all the
gals dig. The duo-tracking
synthesization used on Annette's
voice really achieves an unparalleled
height here as Annette hits the high
notes. You'll justflipfor"I.ucky Lucky

I think, andit'sone rhatreally touches
the nucleus of the human condition.
"Don't Jump to Conclusions
my favorite cut in the whole set, is a
song rhatbelongs ineverybody's col-
lection The title says it all, as Annette
warns us of the folly of our ways and
admonishes us to think twice before
wegetall riled up aboutthangs. Very
catchy tune.
Now, don't get me wrong, there
are some silly little ditties in hre, but
don't they pop up in all the boxed
sets? Like "It Took Dreams a num-
ber that practically gushes the pre-
adolescent Disney ideology. But
there's too many gems to let the occa-
sional bad apple spoil the whole
"Hawaiiannette" isanuttynum-
ber, but then so is "Italianette" and
"Rock-a-Polka Mercy! "Luau Cha
Cha Cha" seems to be the song that
spawned those Purina Cat Chow
commercials. What about
"Danceannette"? I'll tell you: Little
Miss Thang is grindin Get it girl!
And if you don't know how to dance
the Rock-a-cha, don't sweat it! The
lyrics to "Rock-a-cha" tell you how!
I'll tell you, listening to the songs in
chronological order, it's easy to spot
"Monkey's Uncle" jams with
all the potential of a spark near a gas
And backing Annette on this �
number are the Beach Boys; of
course,theywereunknownsatthe '

voice-overs from some famous
folks like Paul Anka, Frankie

And what are they saying? What
else, but how much they love
Annette! Oh it gets me!
Look, it's clearly a beautiful
thing! The songs maybedated and
filled with that crazy ideology of
the wholesome adolescence of the
fifties and sixties, but if s just fabu-
lous. Let me just say, whatever it
was that drove all the boys crazy
way back then, she's still got it and

Beverly Hillbillies' overextends TV sitcom
im the popular televi-
and puts them i:
minute story that serves as nothing
more than a platform horn which
jokes can spring.
The Clampett clan, for those
who may not have ever seen the
long-running television show, con-
sists of Jed (Jim Varney of Ernest
fame), Granny (Cloris Leachman
of Rhoda" fame), Elly May (Erika
Eleniak of "Bayzvatch " and Playboy
fame) and cousin Jethro Bodine,
(Diedrich Bader, a Hollywood new-
The story can be paraphrased
from the song that used to open
each television episode. One dav,
while Jed was shooting at some
food, bubbling crude arose from
the ground. The crude turned out
to be oil, and Jed became a billion-
aire. He decided, on the advice of
his kinfolk, to move his family to
-Beverly Hills, so that his daughter,
Efly May, could learn how to be a
"refined lady.
The Clampetts put their money
in Milburn Drysdale's bank
(Dabney Coleman). Drysdale al-
lows his secretary, Jane Hathaway
(Lily Tomlin), to take care or the
Clampetts. The rest of the film de-
tails the scheming of two shysters
Lea I homp-
. mar-
ike -ill his
is subplot, like the vain
attempt of the Uncle Fester sub-
s n DieAddamsFamily,rapidly
� ars thin and then wears on the
viewer's nerves. Considering that
the characters were already in
place, m mind could not compre-
hend whv four screenwriters were
unable to create anything more
original or interesting than this stu-
pid subplot.
Hillbilly jokes abound in this
film and make the experience of
watching The Beverly Hillbillies less
disagreeable. One especially funny-
gag has a hillbilly wondering if
"cousin Bill" will attend Jed's wed-
ding. The next shot shows the White
House, and a voice says: "Hillary,
where did we put that invitation?"
Still the few good jokes in this tired
film cannot lead to a recommenda-
Despite the stale story, some
positive aspects of the film should
be noted. Dolly Parton, singing a
song for Jed's birthday, makes a
' pleasant cameo. Lily Tomlin steals
the show from the other actors by
infusing a great deal of warmth
and humor into her role as Jane
Hathaway. This character, thanks
to Tomlin, is the only participant in
the story who seems to rise above
the cardboard caricatures from the
series. A cameo by Buddy Ebsen
(Jed in the television series) as
Barnaby Jones also adds a nice
Penelope Spheeris, the director
of Wayne's World, tries her hand at
d irecting another movie-from-tele-
vision. She handles 77k Broerly Hill-
billies in much the same way that
she didWayne'sWorld. She uses
many of the same limited camera
a ngles beca use o f the confined space
of a television screen. Thus the film
looks staged and more like a televi-
sion show than a grand Hollywood
The trouble with this approach
is that Spheeris ignores the possi-
bilities of film. She disregards all
the wonderful aspects of cinema
that make it superior to television.
She uses only the center portion of
the screen thus ensuring an easy
transfer to video (shrewd thinking
if your only concern is money).
Though some special effects are
used, the stunts and sets look no
different from the ones employed
for the television show. Perhaps this
was intentional, but the choice was
surely made for financial reasons
rather than artistic ones.
Spheeris keeps her characters
ardently modeled after the televi-
sion show and thus permits no
growth throughout the film.
Though character gi owth certainly
need not occur in a light-weight
comedy like this one, keeping the
characters so confined makes them
appear as blown-up, small screen
images. Tomlin's exuberant
Hathaway only exaggerates just
how stale and small the other char-
acters are.
All these complaints center
around artistic intentions. Surely
the filmakers knew they had a
sure-fire hit if only they did not
tamper with a proven formula.
This same thinking ruins most
sequels. In the case of a televi-
sion show, the reason the show
aired on small screens instead of
large ones is that the ideas were
suited to the small screen. The
trend to try to elevate low-brow
entertainment to attract a high-
brow audience is deplorable. If I
want to see old television shows
I can watch Nick at Nite.
Where have all the screen-
writers gone? Gone to sequels
and television remakes, every-
This holiday season The
Flinstones is sla ted for release, and
Wayne's World II is in production.
Will this trend ever stop? Only if
the movie-going crowd wants it
to stop. So all civic-minded, level-
headed cinematic aficionados
stay clear of television series on
the silver screen. A message needs
to be sent to Hollywood that,
though film industry minds may
be turning to oatmeal, film fans'
minds are definitely not.
As far as The Beverly Hillbil-
lies is concerned and most other
movies culled from the buried
remains of dead television
shows�JUST SAY NO!
On a scale of one to 10, The
Beverly Hillbillies rates a four.

Fountain Of Youth has also
been busy recording a new CD
with their new guitarist Robin Smith
from the band Kill Kids. The CD
will come out before the end of the
fall semester and lead singer Troy
Yarborough said the big reason for
doing a 7" CD is to send it around
jhe country for radio play.
I One of Fountain of Youth's
.songs was recently played on a top
25 list by a popular N.Y. radio sta-
tion. The two new songs on the CD
will be a song called "Velocity Girl"
and "Rainbow "Velocity Girl" is
about a girl coming to Greenville
and making the best out of it, so it
should hit home with a lot of locals.
Both songs have a good drive to
them and the band said their music
has matured since the last album,
A Moody Groove Fo You
I Many havedescribed Fountain
of Youth as "funk music" but thev
vould like to change that image.
"We listened to and are influence
by old funk music, but we are out to
make our own sound now
lYarbourough said.
Fountain of Youth has been to-
ge ther for two years (ever since they
got to Greenville). They have be-
come very well known in Green-
ville and other parts of North Caro-
lina with their trademark t-shirts
and daisy stickers posted every-
"Greenville has been really
good to us with people, record stores
and WZMBbacking us all the way
Yarbourough said.
Fountain of Youth has been so
successful is their addition of a little
bit of groove to their alternative
sound. The drummer Billy Cuthrell
said they "do not want to overplay
in Greenville so they have been
able to travel around and write new
material. Now they should be ready
to put on two big shows on Thurs-
day and Friday in Greenville with all
this added experience and maturity.
The band will be playing with two

Think about supporting yourself for
twenty-five, thirty years or longer
in retirement. It might be the greatest
financial test you'll ever face. Fortunately,
you have one valuable asset in your
favor. Time.
Time to take advantage of tax-deferral.
Time for your money to grow.
But starting early is key. Consider this:
if you begin saving just $100 a month at
age thirty, you can accumulate $154,031
by the time you reach age sixty-five.
Wait ten years and you'd need to set aside
$211 a month to reach the same goal.
At TIAA-CREF we not only under-
stand the value of starting early, we
can help make it possible�with flexible
retirement and tax-deferred annuity
plans, a diverse portfolio of investment
choices, and a record of personal
service that spans 75 years.

in high school, he knew his goal
in life to own his own business.
He wanted to "give customers the

students are his best customers.
Miiner bases his philosophy on
past experiences. At the time he was
planning on opening his shop, there
was only one other t'ul-service tan-

the staff was unfriendly and that the
prices were too high. Miiner and his

Miiner also believes the secret
to his success is that people these

Vincent Price, whose gaunt face
and creepy voice put chills in such
thrillers as 77k Room and House of
Wax, was a modern-day Renais-
sanceman who dedicated his life to
the arts, friends and relatives say.
Price died Monday night at his
Hollywood Hills home after a five-
year struggle with lung cancer. He
was 82.
"I think it's going to be a big
loss because he gave so much
through all the characters he
played said comedian Milton
Berle, who knew Price from the
actor's appearances on Berle's
Texaco Star Theater in the 1950s.
"He was one of the finest ac-
tors, besides being one of the most
charming gentlemen I ever met
Berle said.
Price was amused by his repu-
tation as the perfect villain.
"I'm not the least bit disap-
pointed that I'm remembered pri-
marily for my horror roles he
said in 1985.
From the beginning of his film
career in 1938, Price appeared in a
variety of films, from the sublime
(Laura, The Ten Commandments) to
the ridiculous (Dr. Goldfootand the
Bikini Machine).
Priceexploited his reputation
as a villain by contributing a
ghostly voice to Michael Jackson's
hit record, Thriller, playing the
creator of Edward Scissorlwmls in
the 1990 film and hosting the PBS
series "Mystery" during the 1980s.
But family members and
friends remembered Price as a
warm man who cared passion-
ately about the arts.
"Some people remember him
for the horror movies or the tele-
vision shows, but his mission in
life and the thing he believed in
was the power of the arts the

The History of the Citibank
Classic Visa card and the Age of Credit
Card SeClinty. In the 67th year of the 20th Century A.D Citibank introduced a credit
card aptly titled the Citibank Classic Visa� card. Established on the premise that a credit card should
offer�24 hours a day�warm, personal service, the Citibank Classic Visa card marked the end of the
Ice Age. And it ushered in a new era. With the introduction of the first Photocard, the credit card
bearing one's own photo and signature on the front, it soon became
evident that Man was entering the Post Paleolithic Period. First,
Man was no longer looking like a Neanderthal, as one often does on
more primitive cards such as the Student ID. He or she could now
choose his or her own photo. Second, by deterring other anthropoids
from using the card, Man was helping to prevent fraud. Surely this
was a sign of advanced intelligence. H The subsequent rise of services was nothing less than an
American Revolution. So as you might expect, Citibank would be there for you, even if your card
was stolen, or perhaps lost. The Lost Walletsm Service could have a new card in your hands Monarch Notes� Version:

The Pirates will head back on

year's Hokie squad is much more
improved and is on the verge of
breaking in on the top 25 list.
The Big East team has a record
of 5-2, the opposite of ECU's. The
Bucs are coming off a tough loss to
Southern Miss, 24-16. The Hokies

Last year in Ficklen Stadium
the Pirates pulled out the stops and
quarterback Michael Anderson hit
Carlester Crumpler on a 21 -yard TD
pass with 42 seconds remaining for
a 30-27 win. The Hokies finished
with a 2-8-1 record last season.

Season tickets were so prized

(RS)�They call themselves the
"Super Ho's" arid they are this year's
Intramural Flag Football Qualifying
champs. After their 7-0 victory over
Sigma Phi Epsilon last weekend, the
champs rejoiced in victory.
"Itwas thetoughestgameforus,

team captain, Brandon Taylor.
With a single elimination rule,
both teams successfully defeated a
series of teams which led them to the
final game played October 24th on
ECU's intramural grounds.
According to Brandon, the key
player of the qualifying game was
the entire team (Kevin
Jenkins, Rodney Young, Tom Moye,
Doug Talbert, Steve Marshburn,
Bryon Lyons and Dave Campbell).
"Defense was the key tonight. We
had to force their quarter back to
throw the ball because we knew he
couldn't explained Brandon.
Despite their loss, Sigma Phi
Epsilon's quarter back, Scott Gagain
and the rest of the Sigma Phi Epsilon
team showed great enthusiasm and
sportsmanship. With Scott's mobil-
ity and speed, the "Super Ho's" de-
fense definitely had a tough time
breaking it down.
Sigma Phi Epsilon placed sec-
ond in both tournaments this year.

(RS)�ECU's club sports have
been an active part of the Recre-
ational Services Department since
1979. Initially, club sports origi-
nated with only three active sports
including Karate, football and the
rugby. Today, however, ECU club
sports have expanded to a total of
20 active clubs.
According to Pat Cox, the co-
ordinator of all club sports at
ECU, there has been major addi-
tions to the program since 1985.
For instance, in 1985 there were
only 10 active club sports that
fluctuated in numbers because
of limited funding. However
since then and under Pat's man-
agement, the club sports were
able to progress successfully and
remain consistent up to today. "I
think it's a great opportunity for
students to participate in any
sport of their choice and I en-

at midseason.
"The last time they were mak-

"We stepped forward and asked
for a career commitment, a finan-

feedback as to what their inten-

"They told us that, atthattime,
he was under contract with the

World Series ratings
second-lowest in history
NEW YORK (AP) � Ratings
for this year's World Series were
the second-lowest ever and
slipped below the NBA Finals for
the first time.
Toronto's six-game victory
over the Philadelphia Phillies got
a 17.3 rating and a 30 share, ac-
cording to figures released today
by A.C. Nielsen Co. The rating
was down 14 percent from the
20.2 rating for the Blue Jays' six-
game victory over the Atlanta
Braves last year.
The only lower-rated World
Series since records began in 1959
was Oakland's earthquake-inter-
rupted sweep of San Francisco in
1989, which got a 16.4 rating.
In 1989, the NBA Finals got a
15.1 rating. The Chicago Bulls' six-
game victory over the Phoenix
Suns in June got a 17.9 rating, the
league's record high. The Dallas
Cowboys' 52-17 rout of Buffalo in
the Super Bowl on Jan. 31 got a
40.3 rating.
Toronto 'sdramatic8-6 victory
Saturday night got a 19.0 rating,
the lowest ever for a sixth game,
and a 35 share. That was down 16
percent from the 22.7 rating and
41 share for Toronto's 4-3, 11-in-
ning victory at Atlanta in Game 6
last year.
Ratings increased throughout
the game, which included a five-
run Philadelphia comeback in the
eighth and Joe Carter's game-win-
ning homer off Mitch Williams in
the ninth, only the second home
run to end a World Series.
The rating was 13.6 from the
game's start to 8:30 p.m. EDT, and
15.6 for the next half hour. It in-
creased to 16.9 from 9-9:30 p.m
17.7 for the following 30 minutes,
20.2 from 10-10:30 p.m. and 21.1
for the next half hour.
By 11-11:30 p.m the rating
was 24.2. It peaked at 26.8 for the
game's conclusion.
The rating represents the per-
centage of television households
in the nation and each point equals
942,000 homes. The share is the

Homacek, a holdout since the

the team for a 105-103 overtime ex-

Johnson, are seeking a balloon ex-

about 58 million in the 1997-98 sea-
son, when he will be 34, according
to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 76ers have already said
they consider his demands to be out
of line.
Homacek has four seasons re-
maining on a six-year contract he
signed wi th the Phoenix Suns, pay-
ing him a guaranteed total of $6
million and up to $7.5 million with
performance-based incentives.

In his first season with Phila-

SGA President gives State
of the Campus address
Thursday, October 28,1993
By A. Keith Dyer
SGA President
Hello, fellow students. I
hope everyone is having a
good fall semester. What you
are reading is the Student
Government's attempt to bet-
ter inform students on what
is going on behind the scenes
at ECU and what the SGA
actually does for students.
The information page is de-
signed to highlight issues
which have been dealt with
by the SGA since the last edi-
tion. Since this is the first edi-
tion, we will begin with the
period from April 27 to
October 27.
The SGA Executive
Council acts as the legisla-
ture during the summer.
The council is made up of
the President, Vice Presi-
dent and Treasurer of the
SGA. The summer is pretty ��
laid-back, with most stu-
dents gone, and the execu-
tive council uses the summer
to get acclimated to their po-
However, the summer
legislature created some im-
portant legislation. A new
appropriations procedure
was adopted which will end
the long-time problem of
double funding. Also, a reso-
lution was passed requiring
residence hall representa-
tives to give bi-weekly re-
ports to their respective hall
council meetings. These bi-
weekly reports are designed
to get more students in-
volved in SGA.
Perhaps the most impor-
tant summer appropriation
made was to ECU Campus
Police to purchase two bi-
cycles for a campus bike pa-
trol. These bikes will be used
to escort women between
campus buildings and enable
the campus police to better
serve the students and the
faculty. When the current
SGA Executive Council was
elected in April, we made it a
priority to curb campus
crime and the bike patrol is
the first step in that direc-

and fall semester began, the
SGA Executive Council be-
gan to see other goals form-

ing. On October 7, we began
deliberation with the Faculty
Senate to enact a grade re-
placement policy which will
allow (if passed) a student to
repeat a course and only the
replacement grade will be
factored into the GPA. As of
now, this new policy stands
a very good chance of pass-
ing and will counter some of
the negative effects of the
new Drop-Add policy.
The fall at ECU immedi-
ately brings to mind Hallow-
een. Since September 29, the
SGA has met with city and
university officials three
times to talk about the stu-
dents' role in making Hal-
loween safer for everyone.
After last year's success-
ful Halloween, the SGA is
doubling its efforts to inform
students to party responsi-
bly once again and make Hal-
loween a continuing tradi-
tion in Greenville. (See our
half page ad on page 17 in
this edition for more details
on Halloween.)
On November 2, the citi-
zens of North Carolina will
vote on a 310 million dollar
bond referendum. If the ref-
erendum passes, ECU will be
appropriated funds to con-
struct a badly needed addi-
tion to Joyner Library. From
August 23 to October 11, the
SGA has made register-
ing voters to vote for the
bond referendum its top
A massive advertise-
ment campaign and voter
registration drive was
completed with much
�� success. Currently, the
SGA is continuing the ad-
vertisement campaign, fo-
cusing on more voter mobili-
zation. It is obvious how im-
portant passage of this bond
referendum is to the students
of ECU and we hope our ef-
forts will make a significant
The ECU SGA hopes this
information page is "infor-
mative There are often
complaints that SGA really
does nothing for students,
and this information page is
especially ior those people.
Just remember that the SGA
is working hard for students
and it is our pledge to con-
tinue to work hard.

The SGA is beginning the year with over
$80,000 available to campus recognized organiza-
tions. This is the most money we have ever started
the year with. The reason for this is that SGA has
received a $2 increase from student fees, which is
our funding source. This was a much needed in-
crease in order to fund the growing number of
student groups on campus.
Any student organization with a favorable
funding status is eligible to receive funding from
ithe SGA. If there are any questions pertaining to
funding, or any other matter relating to SGA, please
tall 757-4726.
This year promises to be very productive and
will watch to insure the fair and necessary distri-
' bution of funds. The semester began with the addi-
tion of the partially student-funded clock located at
the corner of the General Classroom building and
the Geology building. Also included this semester
is the beginning of our SGA campus safety package
to assist in making our campus a safe place to be.
We are excited about SGA playing an active
role on this campus and look forward to serving the
students of East Carolina.
Respectfully yours,
Rich Paravella

By Troy Dreyfus
SGA Vice-President
To the students of East
This is a first of its kind
information page designed
for all ECU students to better
inform you of what Student
Government is and what we
are doing for you. As Vice
President, I hope to improve
the communication between
the student body and the
SGA. We are your represen-
tatives and we want you to
know what is going on con-
cerning student issues. This
has been a very busy year so
far because there are so many
major issues that will be af-
fecting all ECU students.
Crime is a major con-
cern for us as student lead-
ers. This summer we gave
over two thousand dollars to
ECU Public Safety to pur-
chase mountain bikes so they
can patrol campus and give
SGA did not have to do
this, but we feel if we can
help make this campus a
safer place, then the money
was well spent. I encourage
all students to use Public
Safety if you ever need an
escort at night. They are hired
to provide safety and secu-
rity for all students, so please
utilize them by calling 757-
6787 or picking up any blue-
light phone.
I assure all of you that
the SGA is going to keep a
close eye on all issues that
could affect students in the
future. Something we are
((f rss
watching very closely is tail-
gating. As you know, last
year tailgating was restricted
to 5 hours before kick-off and
this year, kegs were banned.
We hope next year, tailgat-
ing is not taken away alto-
gether. Although no decision
has been made yet, there is a
lot of talk about further re-
strictions being placed on
tailgating next year.
We (SGA) hopes that
certain incidents do not get
blown out of proportion
more than they already
have been. The SGA is tak-
ing steps now to work with
university officials and the
athletic department to
solve future problems.
Other changes being
considered for next year
are not selling 12-price
guest tickets for ECU foot-
ball games and the rear-
ranging of the student seat-
Once again, no
changes have been made
yet, but these are some
ideas that could be imple-
mented next year if uni-
versity officials deem it
I will continue to work
along with the entire SGA
in order to provide the best
possible academic and so-
cial environment to all ECU
students. I encourage and
invite each of you to get
involved and use your
voice by becoming a part
of your student govern-
