Students can't connect to 'friends and family1
By Jason Williams
Staff Writer
Remember the old AT&T
advertising slogan, "The Right
Choice"? The state of North Caro-
lina made that choice two years
ago when they chose AT&T to
provide long distance service to
all 16 campuses of the UNC Sys-
tem, including ECU. While the
AT&T-only policy has been a
source of dismay for some resi-
dence hall students, the universi-
ties profit from this agreement.
Prior to the AT&T agree-
ment, students could choose their
own long distance company,
though the primary carrier for
ECU was Carolina Telephone and
Telegraph, said Thomas Lamb, as-
sociate director of Systems and
Communications at ECU.
In 1991, the State Informa-
tion Processing System solicited
bids for long distance services from
AT&T, MCI, Sprint and several
smaller carriers. North Carolina
selected the AT&T Company's
Universy System (ACUS) plan
because it "offered the student the
lowest rate Lamb said.
Through its individual con-
tract with AT&T, each university
receives a commission based on
the lota I number of calls placed b v
students. This amount is a per-
centage of revenue from all long
distance calls placed. Lamb said
ECU averages about $40,000 per
month in profit from this agree-
ment.
Lamb said the money ECU
makes from the agreement is cur-
rently being used for campus
projects, such as rewiring the
dorms for cable TV, rewiring the
phone service and wiring the
dorms for data connectivity to the
campus network.
"Those accounts are specifi-
cally set up so that the money can't
be spent in any other way Lamb
said.
The university is in the de-
sign phase for these projects and
that they should be completed by
the spring of 1995.
Under the terms of he con-
tract students have a limit of $150
per month to spend on long dis-
tance calling, after which their
phone service is cut off. This num-
ber can be adjusted through AT&T
for students with good credit his-
tories.
"The $150 was an arbitrary
figure we stuck in there, just to
keep it from being a problem
said Jim Crain, director of CIS
Telecommunications. "It is really
unlimited. For example, if you are
a second year student and if you
had no trouble last year, the limit is
really unlimited
ECU junior Thomas Blue,
who lived in Scott dorm last year,
complained about the limit. "When
you reach $150, they automatically
turn your line off. The first time it
happened, it was in the middle of
the night and I couldn't get an
extension until business hours the
next day. The problem was I had
five important phone calls to make
that night
Lamb compared the $150
long distance limit to limits on
credit cards. "If you apply for a
credit card, they're going to give
you some initial limit. Then once
they've established the fact that
you're responsible, they will in-
crease that limit
Blue said the limit didn't
bother him as much as the amount.
"I've got a credit card with more
than a $2,500 limit on it and I
now have an AT&T card with a
$600 limit on it, but in the dorms,
1 can't have a phone and be treated
like a normal person
Other students have experi-
enced problems using modems to
call long distance bulletin
boards. Freshman Laura Butler
said her modem did not con-
tain enough memory to dial the
long distance number and the
personal security code required
by AT&T.
"Also, when you're us-
ing the modem, you can't shut
off call waiting. When some-
body calls, it kicks off the sys-
tem and nobody can call the
board Butler said. "The sys-
tem has to reboot when a user
disconnects improperly
Crain explained that us-
ing a modem requires a specific
dialing pattern. "You have to
add commas and pauses in the

Climbing equipment recovered

After completing proper safety instructional courses, students can climb on these artificial rocks located on
the Allied Health field. The department has had a problem, however, keeping equipment from disappearing.

If you were going to steal
$3,000 worth of rock climbing
equipment, would you hide it
under pine straw in the Allied
Health field?
On Nov. 14, unidentified
thieves stole a large amount of
equipment and left it under a
pile of pine straw. An anony-
mous person reported suspi-
cious activity around the Allied
Health field. ECU Police fol-
lowed up on the lead and dis-
covered the equipment.
A previous theft took place
last spring, but the equipment
was never recovered. Both
times, the locks on the Tower
were broken.
"We don't have a huge
budget to work with and $3,000
practically wiped us out said
Reid Cross, outdoor program
director, in reference to the first
theft.

British charged with
lying over IRA contacts
British officials deny negotiations
SGA passes funding
BELFAST, Northern Ire-
land (AP) � The British gov-
ernment has disclosed it had
secret contacts from the IRA this
year and clandestine communi-
cations with a pro-IRA party
for years, but the top British
official for Northern Ireland
says they didn't amount to ne-
gotiations.
The disclosures first ap-
peared in Sunday's London
newspaperTie Observer.
After that report, North-
ern Ireland Secretary Sir Patrick
Mayhew was forced to admit
the contacts and communica-
tions. But in a Belfast news con-
ference, he denied Britain had
been negotiating.
Until now, Prime Minister
John Major and Mayew have
denied the government has been
in touch with either the out-
lawed Irish Republican Army
or Sinn Fein, a legal party that
Britain describes as the IRA's
politicalwing.
Mayhew said this year's
moves started only after the IRA
leadership sent him a message
in late February. He said it
stated "the conflict is over" and
asked for British "advice" on
how to end the IRA's 23-year
military campaign against Brit-
ish rule
Mayhew said it would
have been irresponsible for him
not to have responded to such
overtures. Sinn Fein president
Gerry Adams told a Belfast
news conference Sunday night:
"This particular phase (this
year) of the contact was initi-
ated by the British government.
Mayhew is telling lies from be-
ginning to end
Ian Paisley, leader of the
fiercely anti-IRA Protestant
Democratic Unionist Party,
said: "Nobody in Northern Ire-
land believes that the IRA went
with a white flag and said,
'Please 'advise' us how we can
get out of our trouble He ac-
cused Mayhew of "deliberate,
barefaced lying
Already this year, the loy-
alists have killed 43 people, to
32 by the IRA. Last week the
loyalists were prevented from
smuggling in more than 300 as-
sault rifles, two tons of'explo-
sives, thousands of detonators
and hundreds of grenades.
At least 3,100 people have
been killed in the 23 years of
sectarian violence surrounding
British rule in the province.

The Student Government of
ECU decided to fund the Gospel
Choir of ECU and a trip to
Vancouver for members of the
Maritime Studies Association.
ECU's SGA had its weekly meeting
Nov. 29 todiscuss the twodifferent
issues.
Some members of the SGA
felt that ECU's Gospel Choir is a
religious organization. Forthatrea-
son, they felt that the choir should
not receive any money. Many
member's of the SGA felt that the
organization is a musical organiza-
tion thatis not based on one specific
organization.
Last year the SGA donated
$3,126 for their funds and this year
they have already given them
$1,504. The SGA has always given
them funding, and after secret bal-
lot voting, the choir is going to re-
ceive funding again.
The other issue was whether
to fund three people in the Mari-
time Studies Association to go to a
conference in Vancouver. They will
be receiving $1,728, which will be
used for airfare and conference reg-
istration. The big question on this
conference was whether or not to
SGA should spend so much money
on three people in such a large
school.

David Batts received the
first annual Richard Cecil Todd
and Clauda (Sweetheart)
Pennock Todd Tri-Pod Scholar-
ship. The award was given at the
national Phi Sigma Pi conven-
tion in Charlottesville, Va. Batts
received the award on Nov. 13,
for demonstrating and uphold-
ing the tri-pod- fellowship, lead-
ership and scholarship.
"It was such an honor, just
the recognition that I was living
up to his standards, which are
based on the tri-pod that he em-
bodied so well" Batts said.
Dr. Todd taught history at
ECU until his retirement in 1977.
He remained active in advising
members of Phi Sigma Pi. Dr.
Todd lived down the street from
Batts and they became very close.
"He changed my life a lot
said Batts. "I still go see his wife,
Sweetheart, about once a week,
she's just as awesome as Dr.
Todd was
Dr. Todd initiated the
scholarship with help from the
national Phi Sigma Pi organi-
zation. In his memory, many
alumni and other fraternities
and sororities at ECU also do-
nated money.
The scholarship was for
$200, which went toward
Batts' tuition. Batts is a senior
in industrial technology. He
hopes to earn his Ph.D. and
become a teacher one day.
The scholarship was the
last award given at the con-
vention. A gracious speech
was given in Batts' honor by
an alumni brother. Batts also
received a plaque of recogni-
tion.
" Dr. Todd did know be-
fore his death I had received
the scholarship and was very
happy about that he called
me to congratulate me, I was
really touched Batts said.

Sales off to good start on first days of holiday shopping
(AP) People bought more
frills and luxury items than any-
thing else at many of the nation's
department stores over the long
weekend, giving retailers an en-
couraging start to the Christmas
shopping season. Several big store
owners said Sunday thatconsum-
ers, while budget-conscious, were
buying less-than-necessary items.
"It's a healthy sign said
Myron E. Ullman III, chairman of
R.H. Macy & Co. Inc. She said fine
jewelry, cashmere and velvet
clothes sold well.
The prospect of a good
Christmas season was heartening
to retailers who last year had their
first decent holiday season in four
years. But with business bumpy
for much of the year, store owners
who depend on the holidays for
half their annual profits still were
nervous.
"The only thing that's been
consistent is its inconsistency
Bloomingdale's Chairman
Michael Gould said of retail sales.
Bloomingdale's had a strong
weekend, with sales up nearly 11
percent on Wednesday, Friday
and Saturday from the same pe-
riod a year ago.
Macy's posted surprisingly
strong sales in New York City
over the weekend and did well at
its store in Orange County, Calif.
Sears, Roebuck and Co. also re-
ported better-than-expected sales.
Retailers in the Mid west and
on the East Coast lost some busi-
ness to foul weather. But since the
rain, sleet and snow came so early
in the season, they expect to make
up the sales before Christmas.
Consumers generally are
frugal and practical in their gift
selection. "Shoppers are clearly
looking for value Costello said.
Sales are expected to slack
off now that the first weekend is
over and then gradually pick up
until a final big push the last 10
days of the season. Retailers
plamied to lure shoppers with
discounts and special offers dur-
ing the slower period. Sharper
cuts may come if consumers �
many of them holding out for
bargains � don't respond.
"We're dealing with a cau-
tious and conservative con-
sumer, and cautious and con-
servative people look before
they buy said Ann Barkelew,
spokeswoman for the Dayton
Hudson Corp which owns Tar-
get and Mervyn's stores.

rsity of Houston Faculty votes to abolish sports
� I louston recently
iversit) s athletic program be abolished
le self-supporting. A poll conducted by the Faculty Senate
ier this tall suggests that students lack interest in collegiate
sports, but the students polled do not support the faculty senate's
suggestion. Out of 300 students polled, only 8 percent said thev
regularly attend athletic games at 111. But r4 percent said the
university's athletics should remain, despite the senate's recom-
mendation. Faculty Senate President George Reiter said the stu-
dent survey confirms that students don't really care about the
university's athletics. He said he was disappointed that students
disagreed with the suggestion to eliminate athletics altogether
since they rarely attend the athletic events.
Stadium rules prevent further injuries
The new rules for the University of Wisconsin's stadium
successfully stopped another rush of students onto the football
field, university officials said. The new stadium rules were estab-
lished after thousands of students rushed onto the field following
the upset victory against Michigan State on Oct. 30. The stampede
left more than 70 people injured, seven critically. All the victims
hurt in the incident have been released from the hospital As part of
the new stadium rules for the Ohio State ga me, stud ents exchanged
their season passes for paper tickets to prevent more than one
person from using each pass. During the game, 20 extra security
guards were present to prevent students from sitting in the aisles
and also to prevent any students who attempted to rush onto the
field.
Students recovering from dorm fire
Three Lee College students badly burned in a dorm fire are
progressing "miraculously" after a fire destroyed their dormitory
in about 30 minutes, a college spokesman said. The fire, which has
been classified as arson, destroyed the building at around 2 30 a m
on Nov. 4, said Lee College spokesman Cameron Fisher. Three
students were burned mostly on their faces and hands and are in a
bum unit in a Chattanooga, Tenn. hospital. Another student is
recuperating from back surgery, and 17 other students were hurt
with burns, cuts and broken bones. The blaze began in a chapel in
the men's dorm, which housed 76 students in a two-story 9 000-
square-foot building. "All the residents lost everything " he said
adding that the students are being housed together in Tomlinson
CoUege, a nearby institution.

Tis the season to eat, drink
and be giving. Christmas is not
merely a time to gorge oneself wi th
food, spirits and gifts, but it is also a
time to help the less fortuna tepeople
who nay not have such a comfort-
able holiday.
The Pitt Volunteer Action
Center has put together Holiday
WtshbookAGutdetoGettinglnodued,
to inform area residents about vari-
ous organizations who are in need
of volunteers, especially during the
Christmas season. Companies, civic
groups, church groups, fraternities
or individuals who are interested in
volunteering can contact the Pitt
Volunteer Action Center at 830-
6271 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
ECU students may find it
more convenient to contact Judy
Baker, project director or the ECU
Student Volunteer Program which
is sponsored by the School of Health
and Human Performance.
Each semester the student
volunteer program provides over
700 volunteers to 46 agencies in
Greenville and Pitt County. Ac-
cording to Baker, it started mainly
in the Health 1000 classes and has
since become extremely popular.
"Individuals are looking for
ways to become invoked in the
volunteer program Baker said.
One of the more popular
project, says Baker, is the Ronald
McDonald House which provides
lodging for families of seriously ill
children who are being cared for a t
the Children's Hospital in Green-
ville. Volunteers are still needed to
deliver luminary bagsbeforeChrist-
mas.
"The luminaries project is
popular because students get to
enjoy an activity outside of the class-
room Baker said.
On Dec. 7, volunteers will be
needed to donate blood at the
American Red Cross Blood Mobile
which will be held in Mendenhall.
According to Ba ker, the Asso-
ciation of Retarded Citizens needs
volunteers to assist in Santa's Photo
Booth at Pitt Plaza. The booth will
be open through Christmas. Those
interested can contact Beth Sa vidge
at 757-3084.
The Senior GamesSports
Fest will be held Dec. 6. Although
volunteers were required to attend
a registration seminar in Novem-
ber, there are still some slots open.
For more information call Alice
Keene at 930-4217.
Many other organiza bons also
need assistance with either time or
donations. The American Cancer
Society needs boxes, wrapping pa-
per, bows and other gift wrapping
accessories.
For those of you with an extra
grand to spare, Adventures in
1 IcalthChildren'sMuseumneedsa
fax machine, software and land.
But, it you are of typical col-
lege student status and are lacking
financially, theGreenvilleCommu-
nity Shelter, which is open to home-
less men, women and children,
needs clothing, towels, knapsacks
and newspaper subscriptions.
When Christmas is sup-
posed to be such a wonderful time
for children, it is sad to imagine
children who will not have stock-
ing stuffers, even if they are just
nutsand fruit. TheSal vation Army
is asking donations of canned
foods, stocking stuffers and toys.

won the short-term rhetorical battle over the
budget by convincing everybody that there
were no budget cuts in it, which is false, and
that it was a middle-class tax package, which
is false. But then when we moved on to other

criminating. They work with us when they
think it's a good thing, and when they think
I mess up, they jump up and down on me
Bill Clinton was quoted as saying in the De-
cember 9,1993 edition of Rolling Stone.
The "they" he is referring to are, of course,
certain members of the Republican Party.
And no, we're not grouping together all mem-
bers of the party, but only to those who see
Clinton as a one-term president, as someone
that they can maliciously tear to pieces in
hopes of winning big in '96. In other words,
the sore losers in Campaign '92.
Well, here's a little overview of Clinton's
first year in office, served up fresh for those
who agree with the disgruntled Republicans
(this includes Rush and his Ditto Heads):
� the free-trade agreement
� the deficit-reduction package of $496
billion over five years
� the Brady bill, which calls for a five-
day-waiting period for handgun purchases
� a "national service" plan to allow stu-
dents to trade public service work for college
tuition
� the family and medical care bill
� "the motor voter" bill making it easier
to register to vote and
� $6.3 million in emergency aid to vic-
tims of Midwest flooding.
Sure doesn't sound like a slack adminis-
tration. In fact, the Clinton administration has
had the highest success rate in the first year of
any administration since Eisenhower, accord-
ing to the Congressional Quarterly. But that doesn't
seem to matter to anyone. In media, many are
quick to jump on the faults, the set-backs, the
errors of politicians and hardly ever highlight
the accomplishments of administrations. Maybe
it's the dog-eat-dog world we live in, or the
disgruntled, pessimistic attitude of an ever-in-
creasing number of people. Whatever it is, they
should be told to face the facts.
For the first time in a long time, an admin-
istration is attempting to tackle the big issues.
And it shouldn't matter if you're a Republican,
a Democrat, an Independant or someone who
doesn't care about much of anything political
and isn't registered. This has been a very pro-
ductive year. There's no use denying that.
What's awaiting Clinton is an even bigger
battle than the deficit-reduction plan and
NAFTA combined. In fact, the North American
Free Trade Agreement may seem like child's
play compared to a rewrite of the General Agree-
ment on Tariffs and Trade. NAFTA involved
three countries. GATT involves 115 nations.
Add to this agenda welfare reform, a major
crime bill, campaign finance overhaul and a .
worker retraining package and you're looking
toward a very busy year � complicated, of
course, by the fact that all 435 House seats and a
third of the Senate will be up for grabs in 1994.
Oh yeah, and there's health care � the
most ambitious piece of social legislation un-
dertaken by a president since the Social Security
Act in 1935.
Hopefully the grace period for tough, ef-
fective politics is 60 years, because with the
health care plan's passage, we'll just make it
under the wire.
By John P. Adams
Proposed health care plan deemed 'limited'
I have spent the last few days
reading over the health care reforms
whichhave been proposed by Presi-
dent Clinton (Bill, not Hillary).
It reminded me of my last se-
mesterofSpanish;Iknewwhatmost
of the words meant but I hardly
understood a thing I was reading.
What little of President Clinton's
health care plan I have been able to
decipher leads me to believe that
socialism may have died in Eastern
Europe, but it is alive and well on
Pennsylvania Avenue.
What President Clinton pro-
poses to do is to create a large bu-
reaucracy headed-upby seven presi-
dential appointees which would
oversee and administer health care
to every citizen in the United States.
This bureaucracy would do every-
thing from acting as a middleman
between insurance companies and
citizens, to dicta ting how many spe-
cialists our country needs in all fields
of medicine. PresidentClinton'spro-
posal is not just a nose job on the face
of health care, but rather a complete
change in identity.
This plan stinks of welfarism.
You know what a welfare state is,
don'tyou?Itis the liberal theory that
the people of this country are too
stupid to take care of themselves, so
the government has to do it
The major problem with the
government overseeing something insured and another 30 million are "
of the magnitude of comprehensive on Medicaid. However, all of those

Our other scenario is no less However, the most disturb-
disturbing. As I am sure you all are
aware, our government has this tiny
problem of grossly under jstimating
how much money it will need for
something. This, of course, leads to

the taxpayers pick up the tab.
In actuality, what will prob-
ably happen is a combination ofboth
scenarios. Thegovemmentwillprob-
ably figure out a way to diminish the
quality of our health care while forc-
ing us to pay more for it.
The health care industry does
have some major problems. Insur-
ance rates are exorbitant. Unlessyou
are financially well-off, or your em-
ployer provides good coverage then

If we allow President
Clinton's health care plan to be-
come reality, than we are tacitly
approving of centralization in our
government This cannot be toler-
ated in the industry of health care
or in our society. Do you want a
bureaucrat deciding when and
where you can see a doctor? This is
what will happen under President
Clinton's health care plan.
Popular music and violence: same old song
Letters to the Editor
Have you seen the cover
of this week's Newsweek with
Snoop Doggy Dogg sneering at
the world?
The cover story attempts
to define a connection between
rap lyrics and urban violence,
and this serves as a symptom of
a trend in modem media�iden-
tifying, and suggesting concern
of, a connection between popu-
lar music and violence.
Snoop
Is society encouraging
the crimes artists are
being accused of to be
more violent or are the
artists pushing the legal
envelope hoping to be
badder than the last act
to hit the charts?
Doggy
Dogg is the
22-year-old
discovery of
Dr. Dre,
whose The
Chronic has
become the
largest-sell-
ing rap al-
bum ever.
Dogg and
Dre�along with Ice-T, Ice
Cube, Eazy E and numerous
others�are of the west coast
"SanSsta" rap genre which is
(in)famous for its funk and sexu-
ally and physically aggressive
lyrics. Both are the hottest rap
acts around, both are true
American success stories�out
of the projects, into the record
studio and off to the bank �
and both have well-docu-
mented police records. As do
Tupac Shakur, Flavor Ha v, Slick
Rick, the Ghetto Boys, House of
Pain, 2 Live Crew, etc.
Normally, the arrests of
such artists usually doesn't get
much farther than an inclusion
in Rolling Stone, Spin, maybe
"MTV News But, the legal
plight of rappers who make mil-
lions of dollars makes for more
coverage. And for more investi-
gation.
Newsweek's article, along
with coverage in other publica-
tions, makes the mistake of pre-
senting this information in a way
that suggests that these people
should know better than to par-
ticipate in such acts. Granted,
acts of violence such as rape,
murder and as-
sault and bat-
tery are hardly
simple indis-
cretions and, if
found guilty,
anyone com-
mitting such
crimes must be
punished.
Butpopu-
���hmi lar music and
legal troubles
have gone hand-in-hand since
Alan Freed faced arrest for play-
ing rock-n-roll at his radio sta-
tion. That was in the Fifties. Art-
ists have since fought the law
for, well, everything.
Paul McCartney was ar-
rested in Canada for possession
of marijuana. Jim Morrison was
arrested for indecent exposure a
couple of times. Jerry Lee Lewis
was banned from England for
marrying his 13-year-old cousin.
Axl Rose just settled his lawsuit
with St. Louis for inciting a riot.
Sebastian Bach of Skid Row was
arrested after he lept from the
stage and proceeded to pound
the bejesus out of a fan who may
or may not have been the one to
throw a bottle at him. California
police have seized evidence
against Michael Jackson out of
his own house (stay tuned folks).
Truckloads of folk singers have
been arrested for protesting vari-
ous causes.
It could be perceived that
fame has caused many to assume
they are above the law.
That may be. But the na-
ture of crimes artists are being
accused of are increasing in se-
verity. The question then is one
of chicken-or- egg. Is society en-
couraging the crimes artists are
being accused of to be more vio-
lent or are the artists pushing
the legal envelope hoping to be
badder than the last act to hit the
charts?
It's a different world. What
McCartney was arrested for, Cy-
press Hill praise and abuse at
every concert. Naughty By
Nature's logo incorporates a
baseball bat, and countless heavy
metal acts headbang to images
of skulls and axes. Just think,
"The Ed Sullivan Show" kept
Elvis from showing his fully-
clothed hips. Nowadays, who
hasn't seen the bare backside of
Prince, Steven Tyler or even
Howard Stern?
Sure anyone who breaks
the law should go to jail, but let's
not look at rap and assign total
blame. Let's keep in mind that
we live in different days from
those of James Brown (two years
for assault, co-incidentally), Sid
Vicious (murder) and Chuck
Berry (currently being investi-
gated for child pornography).
Face it, popular music is
just getting a bad rap.
To the Editor:
In the article "Campus Leaders Respond to
Students published on November 6, 1993, and
written by Jason Williams, I feel I was taken out of
context and your article may have conveyed an
erroneous impassion to your readers. Rodney White's
Letter to the Editor on November 18 indicates this.
The article stated, "If you are doing something
that makes you stand out, you may be asked to
produce an I.D especially if you are a young black
male While meeting with the Council of Student
Organization Leaders on Thursday regarding the
recent armed robberies, I mentioned the following
steps were being taken by Public Safety due to the
robberies. They were to increase patrol and escorts,
add different types of patrol, meetings with the
student body organizations (this was my second
such meeting) and many hours of investigative labor
by Public Safety's Investigators.
We also reported the series of robberies to
Crime Stoppers, asking the public for assistance. I
told this group of some of the difficulties we were
facing in solving the cases, including the fact that we
had only three identifiers on the suspects. They were
listed as young, male and black. I cautioned the
group that if they were young, male and black and
did something that made them appear suspicious
to the officers, they may be asked to produce an ID
for identification. This answer was in response to
the robbery issue and not a general response to
behavior or actions of Public Safety. I added the
student body had been very cooperative and very
understanding.
Again in your November 16th issue, another
article by the same writer quoted me as stating I had
no knowledge of any pepper spray incidents (at the
after-hours dances held at Mendenhall Student
Center). This is untrue. I was asked by Crime Pre-
vention Officer Knox if I had any knowledge of
pepper spray being used at the dance held on
November 6,1993, to which I replied in the nega-
tive. To expand a single response to a single dance
to a general statement about all dances is wrong
and in error.
I feel your newspaper is the proper forum for
the fair, honest reporting of news. However, in the
two articles noted above, I feel you failed in this
mission.
Sincerely,
Ron Avery
Chief of Police
To the Editor:
After reading Laura Wright's editorial, "PC
movement: another form of tokenism I, like Ms.
Wright, had trouble sleeping. My problems sleeping
stem not from my hand being asleep but from the fact
that I've had nightmares since reading yet another
pathetic complaint and attack on the American es-
tablishment in the name of political correctness.
Frankly the movement has gotten out of hand.
It is an exhausted, hypocritical idea tha t is detrimen-
tal to our society. The hypocrisy of the situation is
that the various members of the movement are un-
dermining the very principles of which thy profess to
uphold. They preach of an equal, unbiased society
and yet they assemble various special interest groups
thereby highlighting society's differences and fur-
ther dividing it.
Ms. Wright wrote that language is futile "with-
out the backup of a real commitment to change
things She is correct in seeking a change but she is
looking in the wrong place. Members of the politi-
cal correctness movement ask society to commit
their cause simply because they are unique in some
certain way but the commitment should come from
the individual members of the movement. If these
people want a privileged position they should strive
to achieve it through individual work and merit not
by banding together and demanding a group hand-
out. Besides, shouldn't any benefits bestowed sim-
ply because it is "politically correct" be severely
cheapened? After all, these benefits say nothing
about the character and merit of the individual
except that heshe belongs to specific group. It's
time that people stop complaining and demanding
societal support and tart working to better them-
selves.
Sincerely,
Jonathan D. O'Neal
Sophomore

Staff Reports
The East Carolinian
The scenery, history and
peopleof the small continent" down
under" are highlighted in Amazing
Austrailia, a travel documentary
film scheduled for tonight, as the
third event on ECU's 1993-94
Travel-Adventure Film Series.
The film will be screened twice,
at 4 and 8 p.m. in ECU's Hendrix
Theatre, Mendenhall StudentCen-
ter. A "theme dinner" featuring
roast beef, fish and chips, Austra-
lian damper bread melon and kiwi
punch and other appropriate spe-
cialties will be served in the Stu-
dent Center between the screen-
ings.
The film takes the viewer to
interesting cities in rugged, but
friendly Austrailia, among them
Sydney, with its world-famous Op-
era House and unforgettable har-
bor, the capital city of Canberra
with its billion-dollar Parliament
House and diplomatic embassies,
and to Melbourne and Brisbane.
Other highlights are the unusual
art produced by the ancient Ab-
origine people, the wildlife seen at
Kakadu National Park, the "flying
doctors" of .e Springs and the
vast Outback.
Amazing Australia will be nar-
rated by its producer, New
Zealander Grant Foster, who has
earned the title "New Zealand's
Film Ambassador Foster's film
career began in his native
Christchurch, where his parents
operated the city's only "Mom and
Pop" movie theater. Foster's docu-
mentary filmmaking has won the
World Championship Cup in
France and numerous other
awards.
Australia is presented through-
out the film as a land of contrasts,
from its interior deserts to its spec-
tacular sea coasts, from modern
cowboys on its huge ranches to the
exotic Great Barrier Reef.
ECU's Travel-Adventure Film

programs offered by the ECU De-
partment of University Unions.

'Carlito's Way' bottoms out on big screen
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
Brian DePalma has remained a
cinematic enigma for over 20 years.
He possesses the skills of a first-rate
directoryet often fails to utilize them.
He has produced a wildly er-
ratic succession of films, from the
explosively energetic Scarface,a mas-
terpiece of crime cinema, to the bit-
terly disappomtingBcntfireqftlie Vani-
ties. He manages to perfect his craft
in films like Vie Untouctiables and
Casualties of War yet abuses those
same skills in Bcay Double and, most
recently, in Raising Cain.
DePalma'snewestfilm, Carlito's
Way, displays his work as unbal-
anced and uneven, Carlito's Way
lacks a good script, a great cast and a
reliable director.
The story of Carli to Brigante (Al
Pacino in his first role since winning
the Oscar this year for Scent of a
Woman) is based on two books by
EdwinTorres,a New YorkSupreme
Court Justice, and was adapted for
the screen by David Koepp.
The script details the life of
Brigante after being released from
prison early; after being convicted
of illegal wiretaping. Upon his re-
lease, Brigante decides that he wants
to go straight. He has tired of his life
of crime and pines only for a pieceof
a rental car company in Bermuda.
From the opening scene,
Brigante's motives are never believ-
able. Brigante tells the judge that he
has seen the light and that he no
longer wants to live in the darkness,
where he fears for his life. This scene
seems more a farce than a serious
confession. Members of the audi-
ence were chuckling during this
scene, hardly a typical way to begin
an intense film.
Another aspect of this soggy
script,whichcausestheentireproject
to sink, is Carlito's girlfriend, Gail
(another uninspired, pitiful perfor-
mance from one of the worst ac-
tresses in Hollywood today,
Penelope Ann Miller). Gail and
Carlito were once an item, but he
apparently broke her heart when he
went to prison. When Carlito ex-
plains his reasons for hurting Gail
before his incarceration, the film la-
bors for five minutes to allow Carlito
to express himself.
Carlito wants Gailback,andshe
gladly obliges after a few vain at-
tempts at being reticent. Gail works
as a tripper, but the story would
have the audience believe that she
has a deeply romantic soul. Her na-
ivete provesappalling. Atone point,
she asks Carlito if he ever killed
anyone. The script tries to make the
scene sentimental, but actually her
question and his answer distance
the viewer even further from the
events on the screen.
By the time Gail asks her ques-
tion the audience has one burning
question too: How long is the !$
movie?
The length of the film is two
hours and 21 minutes, an inordinate
length for a film this shallow. Even

Ice-T much more
than gangster
HONOLULU (AP) � Don't
confuse Ice-T, the man, with the
cop-killing, ghetto "gangsta" char-
acters portrayed in his songs and
movies.
"I know I'm a spokesman,
and there's a little pressure. I can
only be myself. If anybody wants
to follow me, follow who I am he
said. "If you try to follow charac-
ters in my music or films, you're
gonna end up dead. Pick the right
person
The rapper, rocker, actor and
businessman doesn't mind the
pressure of being a role model, as
long as it's on his terms.
"The problem with the word
'role model' is people want you to
lie and play this politically correct
person. Don'tcallmearolemodel
and then tell me how I should be.
You don't get to bea role model by
listening to other people Ice-T
said at the start of a 2 1 2-month
tour with his hardcore band, Body
Count.
Ice-T, or Tracy Marrow, pio-
neered the popular "gangsta"
style of rap that uses raw lan-
guage to describe and comment
on the violence, hopelessness and
anger of poor black communities
fed up with how they are treated
by society in general and police in
particular.
The star of the films New Jack
City and Trespass, Ice-T is working
to produce and distribute movies,
and owns his own recording label
and clothing 'ine�all to prove a
point.
"Society pokes ghetto kids
down, tells them there's nothing
they can do. It's not that I want to
be an actor, or write books, but a
lot of people are watching mehe
said. "I'm trying to show that we
can make our own records, run
our own record companies, start
our own clothing lines, make our
ownmovies. I was a kid in trouble
once, and now I'm this guy doing
30 things, not just one thing
Body Count is back on the
road for the first time since last
year's flap over the song "Cop
Killer Ice-T agreed to pull it
from the band's self-titled, de-
but album after police groups
and others sold stock and boy-
cotted Time-Warner Inc parent
of Warner Bros. Records.
"Last year, there was a lot of
unnecessary hype. Lots of bands
have said a lot worse things than
we did he said. "To people
who judge us, I ask them: What
gives you the right? Who are
you to judge?"
Ice-T has left the label with
no hard feelings. After time off
to make the rap record, Home
Invasion, and to work on other
projects, Ice-T is back with Body
Count, playing songs from the
first album and the upcoming
Born Dead album to be recorded
after the tour.
Unlike Body Count shows
last year, the ria wan snow went
off with no police protests and
no police presence. The band's
90-minute set of slam-pit music
ended with a shirtless and sweat-
drenched Ice-T�the top of his
boxer shorts sticking out above
his jeans�leading the crowd
through the curse-filled chorus
of "Cop Killer
"I've had a lot of black
people come up to me and say, 'I
expected to see you rap but that
was incredible. I never heard
anything like thatbefore Ice-T
said. "It's just that nobody ever
rocked to anything they could
relate to
That's changing, Ice-T said,
with the emergence of new
bands such as Rage Against the
Machine and the continued suc-
cess of established bands like
Fishbone. With their messages
and music, both are helping to
lure rap audiences into rock.
Today: Eating Disorders
Answered By Dr. Sara Sheperd, Student Counseling Center
Question: I think about food and
my weight all the time. Do I have an
eating disorder?
AnswersManystudentsarecon-
cemed about their image, fitness and
weight. Their schedules are hectic, so
they skip a meal now and then and
overeat at other times. Those with
eating disorders, however, may live
in constantfear of food and fat, strug-
gling to hide eating patterns that are
outof control. Studiessuggestthatup
to ten percent of college students
may exhibit some type of �1
eatingdisorder;thevast �,
majority of sufferers
are women. Factors
that contribute to the
development of an �
eating disorder are
complex, and may in- A�
elude society's beliefs
about "the perfect body
family and interpersonal con-
flicts; biological factors, such as de-
pression; and the pressures of aca-
demics. The emotional and physical
health of these persons is compro-
rnised,andmedicalcomplicationscan
be serious and even fatal.
Anorexia and bulimia are two
typesof eatingdisordeis. Somewarn-
ing signs of anorexia include being
underweight, restricting food or ca-
loric intake, feeling fat (even though
they may be thin), fearing weight
gain and compulsive exercising.
Symptoms of bulimia are eating a
largeamountof food and thenpurg-
ing by vomiting, exercising, using
laxativesorjust fasting the dayafter
abinge;bulimicstudentsalsoexpe-
rience mood swings or depression
and are preoccupied with body
image. The worst effects of food
abuse are isolation, secrecy, a drive
for perfection and low self-esteem.
Ifyoufind yourself (orafriend)
reflected in thisarticle,the
best advice is to seek
1 professional help.
Individual and
00 group counseling
are available. Ef-
fectivecareusually
involves a team of
qj professionals
(therapists, nutri-
tionists and medical
staff), and a therapist can
help determine the best approach

receive the award at a public read-

The International Poetry Fo-

250 evening readings featuring 600
poets from 27 countries. The forum

lakuck, w h�tra els widely to
read his works, lie also directs a
community and campus forum for
poetrv presentations.
He said the organization
chooses the winners of citations
from among the poets appearing at
thelnternational Poetry Forum. He
explained that this is because mem-
bers of the Forum's board prefer to
be familiar with a writer's work and
style of reading.
Makuck was first invited to read
his work at the International Poetry
Forum in February of 1990.
Previous winners of the cita-
tion include Nobel Laureate Derek
Wallcott, Carolyn Forche, Galway
Kinnell, Donald Hall, LucilleClifton,
Sand ra G i 1 be rt, Thomas Transtomer
and Karl Shapiro.
Makuck is the author of Break-
ing and Entering, a collection of sto-
nes published in 1981, and three
collections of poems including The
Sunken Lightship, published in 1990.
He also edits Tar River Poetry,
featuring poems by area poets, pub-
lished at ECU. Most recently,
Makuck co-edited a collection of es-
says on the acclaimed Welsh poet,
Leslie Norris. Makuck and Eugene
England, a professor at Brigham

tributed essays to the volume.

PBS airs special on Townshend Wednesday
NEW YORK (AP) � A million
years ago, really more like 25, a rock
group called The Who hit Chicago.
The band's guitarist, Pete
Townshend, was in fine fettle that
night with his soaring squats and
supple wrist through Tommy and
another couple of hours for good
measure,afterwhichhesacrificedhis
Gibson against a screaming amp to
seal the experience.
Two days later, the hall�where
the foursome had played�burned
to the ground.
Some hot band!
More time passed. Last spring,
Vie Who's Tommy became a lavishly
produced, Tony Award-winning
Broadway hit.
Meanwhile, Townshend, at 48
years old a certified rock elder, had
come to want more for himself than
playing pyrotechnic troubadour.
"I'd love to be able to tell myself
that all I have to do for the rest of my
life is write and perform songs he
says.
"But in music you deal in gener-
alizations�the chase, the seduction,
themelodrama of relationships�and
neverwith the subtleties. Asanadult,
asIgrow,oneof the things thatexcites
me is the specificity of theater, the
subtlety that's possible there
The widening gap between this
rock star's past glories and his quest
into the unknown is reflected�not to
mention explored�in his newest
work, which forms the heart of a
Townshend concert on "Great Per-
formances Wednesday from 10 to
11:30 p.m. EST on PBS.
Taped in August at the Brooklyn
Academy of Music, the set kicks off
with Who favorites before turning to
PsychoDerelict, a narrowly autobio-
graphical but deeply personal musi-
cal play examining the interdepen-
dence of performer, fans and media.
Staged with Townshend, a band
and a trio of actors, the piece has 11
new songs as well as instrumental
passages, visuals and dialogue.
A 70-minute work-in-progress
that began its evolution with radio
workshops and eventually may
emerge asa212-hour extravaganza,
PsychoDerelict becomes an apt com-
panion to the story-and-song "rock
opera" Townshend invented a quar-
ter-century ago with Tommy and ex-
perimented withon Whoalbumseven
before that.

The cartoon's ratings prove it to
be a hit with the 6-to-l 1-year-old
crowd and even a closet pleasure for
older animation addicts.
Videocassettes of past episodes
are best-sellers, and there are "Ren &
Stimpy compact discs out with such
musical selections from the show as
"Don't Whiz on the Electric Fence
Why is the cartoon so popular?
Not just because Ren and Stimpy�
both performed by Billy West�are
funny, Camp says.
"They're two real living charac-
ters withrealpsychologicalproblems,
temperaments, different degrees of
intelligence he says. "A lot of car-
tooncharacters are pretty two-dimen-
sional and are just happy all the time.

The series, given its young audi-
ence, is clearly milder than another
cu tting-edge cartoon, M l"V's"Bea vis
and Butt-head whichhas takenflak
for vulgarity and violence.
But Camp concedes he does try
to push "the line of acceptability. We
always try to sit on that line, dangling
our feet on the other side, in the cool
waters of creative freedom
He takes issue with those who
contend shows such as "Beavis and
Butt-head" cause problems such as
violence. 'Television is a reflection of
society andnotrheofherwayaround
he says.

Camp, who has been with the

thatrole unofficially since Kricfalusi's

Each episode takes about six
months to complete, reflecting the
complexity of animation. About 35 to

CARLITO
Continued from page 7
Pacino cannot save it. His role is
poorly written, and he fails to main-
tain a consistant accent.
The only thespian skills worth
watching belong to Sean Perm who
plays Carlito's lawyer, David
Kleinfeld. Perm once again proves
his worth as an actor by completely
inhabiting the role of the cocaine-
addicted, corrupt criminal attorney
whose slimy dealings eventually
threaten to destroy Carlito's plans.
DePalma has gotten to a point in
hiscareer where he notonly borrows
from other directors but also steals
from himself.
The finale of Carlito's Way takes
place on an escalator in Grand Cen-
tral Station.
The finale of The Untouchables
takes place on a stair case in a train
station, and that sequence was bor-
rowed fromSergeiEisenstein'sBaHte-
ship Patemkin.
This Odessa Steps sequence fit
perfectly into the story of The Un-
touchables but in Carlito's Way, the
borrowed scene feels out of place
and only serves to remind the
viewer just how poor DePalma's
judgement can be.
Carlito's Way tries in vain to be
a mature picture, but sabotages
itself at every turn.

To the ECU Community,
In the article "Leaders respond
to campus concerns" printed in
the November 9 issue of the East
Carolinian, Ron Avery, Chief of
Public Safety, was quoted as say-
ing that students engaging in
suspicious activity, "especially if
you are a young, black male will
be asked to produce a student I.D.
card. When asked about his state-
ment, Chief Avery explained that
his comment was misquoted and
taken out of context. However,
Avery was given the opportunity
to retract his statement but did
not take advantage of that oppor-
tunity. We, the members of Allied
Blacks for Leadership and Equal-
ity, take this gesture as a smack in
the face. It implies that, although
Chief Avery may have been mis-
quoted, he is satisfied with what
he said.
The members of A.B.L.E. are
disgusted with this situation for
many reasons. First, the state-
ment exemplifies the stereotypes
of black males�that they are the
most probable troublemakers in
our communities. With such a
MENDENHALL STUDENT CENTER
GREENVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
27858
mindset as the one posed by
Chief Avery when making such a
statement, one should really
wonder what thoughts, ideas, and
other stereotypical views are
trickled down and embedded into
the mindsets of officers under
such a leader.
Secondly, activities described
as 'suspicious' are not clearly
defined: ergo, the discretion is
left to the individual officers.
A.B.L.E. is perturbed at the fact
that, after Chief Avery's state-
ment was made, one of ECU's
black males was confronted by
public safety officials and asked
to show I.D. four times in one
day! What is even more agitating
is that this particular male was
stopped twice by the same public
safety official! Realizing that the
possible justification for this was
because he was involved in some
type of 'suspicious' activity ac-
cording to the standards of that
particular officer, can we hon-
estly say that this student was
given fair treatment? We think
not.
Thirdly, not only does this
situation strengthen the irrational
view of black males as being more
criminally-minded than any other
group of people in our communi-
ties, it also strengthens the stereo-
tapes of police officers as being
biased and unjust when it comes
to crime and black people.
(Negativity flows in more direc-
tions than one.)
Finally, Chief Avery came to
speak in one of our A.B.L.E. busi-
ness meetings. In a response to a
question posed by one of our
members, Chief Avery agreed that
blacks are mistreated by police
officers all over the United States,
including here at East Carolina
University. He expressed the fact
that he does not know about
many of the incidents on campus
simply because no one reports
them, and he went on to say that
he would try to resolve any aris-
ing problems that concern us.
Chief Avery was confronted about
this particular situation, had
ample time to respond, and chose
not to resolve the conflict. If
Chief Avery reneged his word in
this predicament concerning
student safety and student wel-
fare, think of other situations in
the future in which he may deny
what he has said.
To be at a university where
our leaders so haphazardly dis-
dain minority students is dis-
graceful; moreover, it is shameful
when those same officials show
no concern for correcting pre-
judging statements. That is why
A.B.L.E. would like to challenge
our other university officials (our
chancellor, faculty, and adminis-
tration), to help us get to the
bottom of this situation. If you
care about us as students as you
claim, you will join us in attain-
ing an explanation from Chief
Avery. If you choose to ignore
our requests any longer, we will
be forced to take our complaints
to higher authorities. We, as
members of the ECU community,
deserve better. TUWAMOJA
(Together We Stand)!
The Members of A.B.L.E
Allied Blacks for Leadership Equality
P.S. There will be a meeting on December 1, 1993 at 5:00 in the social room of Mendenhall Student Center concerning this incident. The
Director of Public Safety, Theresa Crocker, and Chief Ron Avery will be present to answer questions concerning this situation. EVERYONE IS
ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND!

Bowl coalition creating controversy
(API�Florid State played a
tougher schedule. West Virginia
has a better record.
So which team deserves to
play Nebraska for the national
championship in the Orange
Bowl?
The debate intensified Sun-
day when Florida State edged
West Virginia by 69 points in the
combined Associated Press and
USA Today-CNN polls, setting
up a probable Jan. 1 showdown
between the Seminoles and
Cornhuskers.
The news delighted top-
ranked Florida State (11-1) and
upset No. 3 West Virginia (11-0),
the only undefeated team besides
No.2 Nebraska (1 Ineligible for
a bowl.
"You ask kids to do every-
thing and they do it and then
they're not rewarded. It makes it
difficult West Virginia coach
Don Nehlen said.
Florida State coach Bobby
Bowden, who has won every-
thing but a national champion-
ship, said he would welcome a
title shot against Nebraska.
"I always said I wish we had
a chance at the end of the year
he said. "Now it looks like we've
finally got a chance at the end of
the year
The AP media poll ranks
Florida Sta te No. 1, Nebraska No.
2 and West Virginia No. 3. The
USA Today-CNN coaches' poll
has Nebraska first, followed by
West Virginia and Florida State.
In the combined polls, which
determine the major bowl
matchups, the order is Nebraska,
Florida State and West Virginia.
Nebraska will play Florida
State in the Orange Bowl if both
teams hold their positions in the
last combined poll, which will be
released Sunday. Nebraska,
Florida State and West Virginia
have completed their regular sea-
sons, so there's little chance of a
major shiftin the pollsnext week.
If Florida State plays Ne-
braska in the Orange Bowl, West
Virginia will go to the Cotton
Cwl and play No. 7 Texas A&M
(10-1). Since West Virginia is No.
2 in the coaches' poll, the Moun-
taineers might win a share of the
national title if Florida State beats
Nebraska.
Bowden said Florida State
earned a berth in the title game
by playing one of the most diffi-
cult schedules in thecountry. The
Seminoles' opponents have a
combined record of 77-57, com-
pared to 56-63-2 for West
Virginia's foes.

Senior Writer
CINCINNATI, Ohio � The
Cincinnati Bearcats finally put an
end to the Pirates' dreadful 1993
season on Nov. 20, 34-14. ECU's
rushing defense was finally pen-
etrated.Senior tailback David Small
aished for 206 yards against a sur-
prised ECU defense.
"I didn't think that they could
run the ball effectively said Pirate
head coach Steve Logan. "I give
them all the credit in the world
ECU came in ready to spoil all
Bearcat 1993 bowl chances, but were
soundly beaten up and down the
field, controlled by a stifling de-
fense that held JuniorSmith toonly
54 yards on 21 carries.
UC received the opening kick,
and had to punt after three quick
plays from their own 31 yard line.
ECU started from their own 26, bu t
also were forced to punt after three
plays. However, the Pirates lost the
ball after a bad snap to new punter
Eddie Crabtree, who replaced the
inconsistent Bill Wilson for the Pi-
rates. The botched play gave the
Bearcats the ball at the ECU 20. The
Pirate defense held the Bearcats to
aTomDallenfield goal, making the
score 3-0.
On ECU's next possession, the
Bucs were driving until quarter-
back Perez Mattison was picked off
at the Cincinnati 48 yard line by
safety La tish Kinsler, who re turned
it to the ECU 39. After an 11 play
drive, the Cats scored their first
touchdown on a Small dive over
the right sideof the I ine, his 15th TD
of the year.
During the first quarter, the
Pirate offense was virtually nonex-
istent. Perez Mattison was two for
six passing with one interception,
and Smith only gained 16 yards.
Meanwhile, Cinci QB Lance Harp
was hot, completing six of seven
passes for 63 yards. It was a sign of
things to come.
Early in the second quarter,
David Small collected his-second
touchdown, strolling in untouched
from one ya rd ou t, ma king the score
17-0.
ECU's first scoring opportu-
nity came when kicker Chad
Holcomb pu 1 led a 37-yard field goal
attempt wide right. This kept the
score at 17-0 at half-time.
First half highlights for the Pi-
rates included Junior Smith'sbreak-
ing the ECU single season rushing
mark on his second carry of the
game. The previous record was
1309 held by Carlester Crumpler,
Sr for the 1972 Pirates. Crabtree,
playing in his first game for the
Pirates, averaged 39.3 yards per
kick, with a long of 45 yards.

The score remained the same
until Bernard Carter picked off a
Harp pass and scampered 34 yards
for his first career touchdown in his
last game as a Pirate. It was the
fourth season in a row that the Pi-
rates have returned an interception
for a touchdown against UC.
Holcomb's point after was good,
and the lead was cut to 24-7.
Early in the fourth quarterTom
Dallen hit his second field goal of
the game, from 22 yards out, push-
ing the UC lead to twenty. They
increased this lead when Harp
rolled out and completed an8-yard
touchdown pass to Darrell Harding.
This, after the PAT, gave ECU the
balldown34-7with just under nine
minutes left.
No miracle comeback here,
folks. ECU did, however, manage a
final touchdown when QB Perez
Mattisi �n scrambled fn m twoyards
out, making the score 34-14, where
i 'ed.
Mattison finished the game 18
of35forl91vards,butthekeytothe
loss was the Bearcats' holding ECU
to only 99 rushing yards.
"For the first time, we let Perez
check the whole game at the line
said Coach Logan. All of the short,
quick completions were the effects
of his audibles at the line of scrim-
mage
With all the injuries and inex-
perience that ECU has suffered
through, the team's morale and
drive have stayed exceptionally
high.
Next year, the team will still
beyoung,buttheexperienceofsuch
adreadful season willbeimplanted
in the players' minds forever. The
program is on the rebound, and
ECU will soon again be a force to be
reckoned with on the gridiron.

poll and climbed from No. 3 to
No. 2 in USA Today-CNN, but
they remained behind Florida
State in the combined polls.
Nebraska coach Tom
Osborne sa id Sa tu rd a y he wo u Id
prefer to play West Virginia in
the Orange Bowl. That's under-
standable considering that the
Cornhuskers have lost bowl
games to Florida State three times
in the past six years.
Florida State received 42 first-
place votes in the AP poll, while
the rest went to Nebraska (17),
Auburn (2) and West Virginia (1).
In the coaches' poll, Nebraska got
43 first-place votes, followed by
Florida State (10), West Virginia
(8) and Notre Dame (1).
No. 4 Auburn (11-0) is the
only undefeated team besides
Nebraska and West Virginia,
but the Tigers are barred from
postseason play because of
NCAA probation.
If Nebraska and West Vir-
ginia lose their bowl games, Au-
burn probably would finish sec-
ond behind Florida State in the �
AP poll. That would give Bobby
Bowden and his son, Auburn
coach Terry Bowden, the first 1-2
family finish.
The Sugar and Rose bowl
matchups won't be completed un-
til next weekend. The Sugar will
probably pit No. 5 Notre Dame
against the winner of Saturday's
Southeastern Conference cham-
pionship game between Florida
and No. 16 Alabama.
The loser of the SEC title game
is expected to play No. 12 North
Carolina in the Gator Bowl.
