Parking problems have only just begun
Rec center of the future brings
aggravation now
By Laura Allard
Staff Writer
Much to the agony, frustra-
tion and utter aggravation of
many students, construction for
the new recreation center has de-
voured about 300 commuter and
resident parking spaces.
Construction now controls
the parking lots south of Greene
residence hall and west of
Mendenhall Student Center. A
steel fence looms above the
masses of steel, dirt and lumber,
and access is limited to those in-
volved in the construction.
The loss of these lots poses
obvious parking problems, and
Traffic Services, ECU Transit and
the Student Government Asso-
ciation are working to help stu-
dents overcome these inconve-
Pat Gertz, director of Park-
ing and Traffic Services is en-
couraging students to take ad-
vantage of the bus and shuttle
"This is a good time to start
using the shuttle system Gertz
said, "because the parking situ-
ation is going to get worse be-
fore it gets better
Students may also take ad-
vantage of the Pirate Ride pro-
gram. This service, funded by the
SGA, provides bus service from
downtown to several campus lo-
cations for ECU students. Signs
will go up this semester desig-
nating specific stops for the
shuttle, but it is running now from
10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday
through Saturday.
Students may also call Pub-
lic Safety for an escort if they
must walk across campus alone
to get to their cars or another
In addition to closing the
lots directly involved in the con-
struction, the parallel parking
along the service street behind
Mendenhall has been removed
in order to create a temporary
bus stop. The parallel parking on
Ninth Street, Lawrence Street and
Charles Street may also be al-
Adjustments have been
made to help compensate for the
lost spaces. The parking lot at
Fifth and Reade Street is only
open to students with Resident
and Commuter permits. The
lower Minges, Charles and
Ficklen lot will be open to fresh-
men only.
The Blue lot at Minges is
now for Commuter and Limited
permits only, and the Gold lot
will remain open to University
Registered vehicles. Both of these
lots provide easy access to the
commuter shuttle which stops
every ten minutes at Minges Coli-
seum and Christianbury Gym-
The pool parking lot west
of Minges Coliseum is now des-
ignated for Staff permits only,
and state-owned vehicle parking
has been relocated to a Central
Motor Pool site on the Allied
Health property.
Parking changes will occur
throughout the semester as a new
lot is opened and the library ex-
pansion begins.
Gertz advised students to
pay attention to all signs and com-
munications that are released re-
garding the constantly changing
parking situation.
In response to these
changes, students expressed frus-
tration about the lack of parking
on campus, and generally agreed
with senior Adam Rogerson's
proposal that ECU "doaway with
Freshmen parking altogether
ECU student Hessel
Verhage is also frustrated about
the parking situation, but said
students should "stop whining
about minor inconveniences that,
in the long run, will enhance the
public's opinion of ECU.
"If ECU looks good, then
you look good Verhage said.
The recreation center
should be open in the fall of 1995
and will include six multi-pur-
pose courts, three large aerobic
studios, a weight room the size of
Christianbury's gym, a three-
lane, one-fifth of a mile track,
seven racquetball courts, one
squash court, an indoor archi ry
and golf area, a large indoor pool,
an outdoor pool with a sun deck
and an indoor climbing wall.
"The quality of recreation
facilities is in the top three rea-
sons students chooses a univer-
sity said Nance Mize, director
of Recreation Services. "ECU is
the only state-supported school
in North Carolina that doesn't
have a facility of this type.
The recreation center is part
of the first phase of the master
plan for university renovations.
This phase of the plan also in-
cludes the expansion of Joyner
Library, the renovation of Slay
and Umstead residence halls, the
construction of Todd Dining Hall,
an expansion of The Wright Place
and the possible expansion of the
Student Health Center ana
Ficklen Stadium.
Future prison, or future rec center? This mass of a mess will gradually
evolve into luxuries including an outdoor pool and a squash court.

Newspapers stolen at University of Maryland
The University of Maryland's student newspaper is trying to
ease racial tensions after 10,000 newspapers were stolen and the
paper was accused of being racist. The newspapers, representing
about half of the paper's circulation, were removed from their bins
in the early morning and replaced with a flyer that said "Due to its
racist nature, the Diamomiback will not be available today � read a

sensitive errors appeared in the publication. The Diamondback

Return your silverware � it's worth something
Carolina Dining Services, the resident dining service for
UNC-Chapel Hill, wants their silverware back. Johnny Francis,
resident dining manager, said that because of the serious silver-
ware shortages in the dining halls, CDS was offering rewards to
students who returned pilfered flatware. At the beginning of the
semester CDS ordered 350 to 400 dozen knives, forks and spoons.
The dining halls have already exhausted that supply and have been
reordering silverware about once every 1 1 2 months. Students
will not be punished for returning silverware. Instead CDS will
offer rewards such as Pizza Hut coupons and free lunches at CDS
locations. In addition to missing silverware, items such as glass-
ware and salt and pepper shakers are often taken. Although CDS
usually issues a silverware recall every year, this is the first time
they have offered rewards and posted signs in residence halls and
around campuses.
Study says jobs are out there
The hiring of new college graduates is expected to increase
this year after a five-vear lull, a survey by Michigan State University
found. The survey, done by Collegiate Employment Research
Institute, found that hiring should increase 1.1 percent. The figure
was based on the responses of more than 600 business, industry and
government organizations nationwide. The Recruiting Trends sur-
vey also projects an increase of up to 1.6 percent in starting salary
offers to new graduates. Highest among the starting salaries for
students with a bachelor's degree are chemical engineering, $40,341;
mechanical engineering, $35,369; nursing, $29,868; and geology,
$28,414. Employer categories expecting the greatest increases in
hiring include hospitals and health care services; aerospace and
components; and banking, finance and insurance.

Biotech speaker welcomed
By Stephanie Lassiter

First there was Biosphere,
now there is Biotechnology. G.
Kirk Raab, president and chief ex-
ecutive officer of Genentech, will be
the featured speaker for the School
of Medicine's Doctoral Student Re-
search Day, which is being held
"This is an unique opportu-
nity to leam more about the out-
standing scientific research being
conducted within our community
said Dr. Alvin Volkman, associate
dean for research and graduate stud-
ies at the medical school.
Raab's talk, entitled "Science:
The Foundation and Future of Bio-
technology will be held at 7 p.m.
tonight at the Greenville Hilton.
"Raab is preeminent in his
field, which is the fastest growing
biomedical research today said Dr.
David Terrian, associate professor
of anatomy and cell biology.
Genentech, based in San Fran-
cisco, is one of the world's leading
innovators in biotechnology and
pharmaceutical manufacturing.
Genentech played a major role in
the discovery and development of
human pharmaceuticals using ge-
netic engineering techniques.
"The graduate students
wanted to have a leader in the field
of industrial biotechnology who
could speak about the importance
of their academic training and basic
research to Biotechnology said Dr.

Save some dough, pay off those loans
Plan offers new solutions to age-old headaches accompanying loan bills
By Tammy Carter
Staff Writer
Everyone wants to save
money, and students who have
PLUS or SLS loans may be able
to do just that through the Sallie
Mae Direct Repay Plan. As of
May 1, 1994, borrowers can use
the new Sallie Mae Plan to re-
pay student loans electronically
through their checking or sav-
ings account.
Students who choose to re-
pay their loans through the plan
will actually save money be-
cause they will receive a .25 per-
cent reduction in interest rates
as long as they continue to use
Sallie Mae. It is less expensive
to administer loans paid elec-
tronically, therefore the Sallie
Mae corporation will pass its
savings on to borrowers through
the interest rate reduction.
The Direct Repay plan will
first be available to students
whose loans are already owned
by Sallie Mae are currently in
repayment, and are serviced at
one of its loan servicing centers.
All PLUS and SLS borrowers
will be able to sign up by July,
"Direct Repay ischeckless,
so on-time payment is guaran-
teed every month, provided bor-
rowers have sufficient funds in
their accounts said Lydia
Marshall, senior vice-president
of Sallie Mae. "This helps bor-
rowers avoid missed payments,
makes it easy for them to main-
tain a good credit rating, and
allows them to pay less on their
student loans
Borrowers may save even
more money if they qualify for
Sallie Mae's Great Rewards ben-
efit. If they make their first
scheduled payments on time,
borrowers receive an additional
2 percent rate reduction. This
would amount to a total of 2.25
percent interest rate reduction
through Direct Repay and Great
Rewards. For example, a bor-
rower with a loan balance of
$5,000 upon entering the Sallie
Mae plan will save approxi-
mately $327. Students who bor-
row money every year as un-
dergraduates, which amounts to
approximately $23,000 in
Stafford loans, would save more
than $1,500 by using the Sallie
Mae programs.
Sallie Mae buys educa-
tion loans from the original
lenders and is the nation's
largest holder and servicer
of these loans. The Sallie Mae
corporation currently owns
one in three guaranteed stu-
dent loans outstanding to-
day, and represents financ-
ing for five million students
and their parents.
Borrowers who want to
sign up for Direct Repay can at
any point during their repay-
ment period, as long as they
are current with their pay-
ments. People interested in
using the Direct Repay plan, or
who want more information
about it should call their Sallie
Mae loan servicing center.

honor and I'm very grateful

Family members say Rich-
ard West was so eager to join the
military that he enlisted with the
Army reserve in November 1975,
just months before he was to
graduate from a vocational high
school near his Middleboro,
Mass hometown.
He began active service in
1976, about the time that his fam-
ily moved to Sullivan.
His sister, Elizabeth Turton,
said West was on the Army's ski
team while stationed in Germany,
and had earned his paratrooper's
wings and letters of commenda-
tion from his commanders.
By the summer of 1980, the
soldier had been at Fort Bragg 14
months as a mechanic with the
airborne 50th Signal Battalion.
But early one morning in
July, he called his father to ex-
press fears for his life, said Charles

the last contact with him.

Surviving Branch Davidians go on trial
Eightv potential jurors today faced
the prospect of spending the next
two months deciding the fate of 11
surviving Branch Davidians
charged with murdering four fed-
eral agentsat theircompound near
U.S. District Judge Walter
Smith this morning began asking
potential jurors whether they per-
sonallv were acquainted with pos-
sible witnesses.
Among the possible wit-
nesses were Kathryn Schroeder, a
Branch Davidian who avoided a
murder charge by agreeing to as-
sist the government, and numer-
ous former members of dooms-
day prophet David Koresh's reli-
gious group.
Rocket Rosen, attorney for
Davidians Kevin Whitecliff and
Livingston Fagan, said former FBI
director William Sessions may be
called as a defense witness.
Testimony was expected to
begin by midweek. Relatives of
the defendants, interested citizens
and news reporters crowded into
the tightly controlled federalcourt-
house for a chance at one of the
few available seats as jury selec-
tion began.
Prosecutors hope to prove
murder and conspiracy charges
with Schroeder's testimony and a
warehouse full of evidence such
as tape recordings of the Davidians
and seized weapons.
Defense lawyers are ex-
pected to use the government's
own findings to bolster its exces-
sive force claim, including a re-
port that criticized the raid's plan-
ners for flawed decision making.
Prominent potential defense
witnesses besides Sessions are
Stephen Higgins, who resigned as
director of the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms three days
before that Sept. 30 report, and
Attorney General Janet Reno.
The trial is expected to last
two months. If convicted, the de-
fendants could be sentenced to
life in prison.
Smith moved the trial from
Waco because of extensive pub-
licity there, banned attorneys from
discussing the case outside court
and ordered that the jury remain
Smith plans to choose 12 jury
members and six alternates from
a pool of 80 people who described
their religious experience in ques-
The weapons raid by about
100 ATF officers resulted in a
shootout that killed four ATF
agents and wounded 16 others.
Six Branch Davidians are believed
to have died in the gun battle.
Koresh, the self-described
"Lamb of God then led about
100 Branch Davidians in a 51-day
armed standoff that ended in a
raging fire that broke out when
authorities began punching holes
in compound walls with assault
vehicles. Koresh and at least 80
others died amid the blaze, at least
13 by gunshots.

The East Carolinian 7
Smokers wise up with age
NEW YORK (AP) � Thirty
years ago Tuesday, a modest
brown paperback book released
by the U.S. Public Health Service
triggered history's sharpest de-
cline in smoking.
Cigarette consumption in
the United States abruptly
dropped 20 percent in the three
months after the Jan. 11, 1964,
release of the first surgeon
general's report on smoking and
That book has since proven
to be a landmark in U.S. public
health. It not only halted the de-
cades-long rise in the number of
American smokers, it initiated a
steady decline that continues.
"It was a very dramatic and
courageous thing to do said Jo-
seph Califano, the top domestic
policy aide to President Johnson
and secretary of health, educa-
tion and welfare under President
But the report also provides
a sharp reminder of the power of
the tobacco lobby, health activ-
ists said, and its ability to block
any serious regulation by the fed-
eral government.
"I don't think anyone on our
1964 surgeon general's advisory
committee would have dreamed
that 30 years later we would find
perhaps the most lethal and ad-
dictive products in society still
manufactured, advertised and
distributed virtually without re-
striction said Dr. Charles
LeMaistre, now president of the
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in
Security was tight when the
report was released. Two hun-
dred reporters were locked in the
auditorium of the State Depart-
ment tor a two-hour briefing by
Surgeon General Dr. Luther L.
Terry and the panel of experts.
The report's blunt and
closely guarded conclusion:
Smoking causes lung cancer in
Researchers had noticed an
unexplained increase in lung can-
cer among Americans as long ago
as 1900. Several important studies
in the 1950s pointed the finger at
cigarettes. But the surgeon
general's report put the words
"cigarette" and "cancer" on front
pages around the worldThere's
no doubt that theoriginal surgeon
general's report and those that
followed heightened public con-
cern and awareness about tobacco
usage said Thomas Lauria, a
spokesman for the Tobacco Insti-
tute in Washington, D.C.
In the three months before
the report, Americans smoked
cigarettes at the rate of about 1,000
per person. In the three months
after the report, that dropped to
800 a person, the sharpest decline
ever, according to Michael Eriksen,
director of the surgeon general's
Office on Smoking and Health.
Forty-two percent of Ameri-
cans smoked in 1964, compared to
26 percent now.
When the first surgeon
Winter storm hits east coast with vengeance
general's report was released,
President Johnson ignored it.
"We didn't want to do any-
thing about it said Califano, now
chairman of the Center on Addic-
tion and Substance Abuse at Co-
lumbia University. "We wanted
to get schools integrated, the vot-
ers' rights act passed, fair housing
passed. And all of those things
required us to take on the whole
phalanx of Southern states
Califano tried to make up
for that as Carter's secretary of
health, education and welfare. On
Jan. 11,1978, a banner headline on
the front page of the Washington
Star said, "Califano Declares War
on Smoking
Again, however, political re-
alities immobilized the federal
government. "The tobacco indus-
try went crazy Califano said. "It
ultimately cost me my job
Dr. joycelvn Elders, the cur-
rent surgeon general, thinks Wash-
ington may finally be at a turning
"Washington is beginning to
catch up she said. The key to
tougher regulations, she said, is
seeing tobacco as the central part
of a larger preventive health ef-
fort, much as Califano tried to do
15 years ago.

Lawyer hits downfall, drags clients with him
prominent Charlotte lawyer said
his poor money management led
to the overwhelming debt that
prompted him to take $243,000
from three clients.
Jake Wade, 65, has repaid the
money and calls his actions "a ter-
rible mistake Creditors want his
home, his office and most anything
he owns.
"I am completely devas-
tated Wade said in a tearful inter-
view with The Cfiarlotte Observer at
his office condo. "I got in over my
head financially, and I didn't
handle it right
Word of Wade's troubles
shocked the legal community, his
neighbors and many of the base-
ball players trained by the long-
time Little League coach � who
learned fair play and sportsman-
ship from the burly, boisterous
For 36 years, Wade helped
mold the young sons of some of
Charlotte's most prominent fami-
lies. Former Major League Base-
ball commissioner Bart Giamatti
once saluted him in a national
speech. Even Sports Illustrated cel-
ebrated his coaching longevity.
"I'm astonished. I just can't
believe it said Jim Cobb, Wade's
childhood pal and fellow Charlotte
lawyer. "I've known Jake since we
were both teen-agers at
Wrightsville Beach and he has been
a straight arrow in every sense
Barbara Thompson, Wade's
team mother for 10 years, said it
bluntly: "If Jake Wade did some-
thing wrong, he must have reasons
that nobody could withstand. God
works in weird ways and I think
there's a reason for this
A past chairman of the
Mecklenburg County Bar, Wade
said he expects to be disbarred.
"It's a very serious case said
David Henderson, deputy counsel
for the North Carolina State Bar,
which supervises lawyers. The bar
has ordered Wade to stop handling
money from clients until a hearing
this spring.
"In my opinion there is noth-
ing more serious than taking
money from a client, and it justifies
the most serious punishment
Henderson said.
Mecklenburg District Attor-
ney Peter Gilchrist declined com-
The Disciplinary Hearing
Commission, a separate arm of the
state bar, is expected to hear Wade's
case in March. It can dismiss the
complaint, punish Wade with a
reprimand or take his license.
Mecklenburg County pros-
ecutors also are watching the case,
which means Wade could face
prison time if they choose to pros-
ecute him.
After graduating from law
school at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1956,
Wade joined a Charlotte law firm
led by Robert Potter, now a U.S.
district judge. In 1971, he and his
friend Cart Carmichael opened
their own office.
Together, the pair built a
prestigious firm. Wade became
known as a bulldog, represent-
ing insurance companies,

tors, even a couple of lawyers in
Wade's only obvious pas-
sion is baseball.
He first stepped on the dia-
mond as a Little League coach in
1957. And he's coached the same
team � sponsored by Harry &
Bryant Funeral Home � every
spring since.
Wade insists he is just a bad
money manager.
"There's no gambling, no
drinking, no drugging Wade
said. "I got involved in honest
financial difficulties, and I didn't
handle it right. There's nothing
sinister about what's happened. I
was trying to do what I was sup-
posed to do
In early 1992, Wade saw
only one way out.
The plan was simple, Wade
He would take money from
a client account and quickly re-
pay it. A major case would pay
off any day and cover his debts.
"I would say to myself: T'm
in financial trouble. I need this
right here, and next week I'll get
it paid back Wade recalled.

ing problem" has emerged again and
is the prickly bush up our schol-
arly well, nevermind, you
know what we're getting at.
Yes, it could even be
compared to a pesky tape-
worm, if you carefully use your
imaginations. A happy, smiley
parasite that feeds on innocent
hosts and revs its engines just
in time for a new semester
For those who were in-
tent on conducting an in-
depth search of the prickly
bush, a rather large, rather omi
nous death camp fence was
erected around the parking lots next to
Mendenhall Student Center for the spe-
cific purpose of construction preparations
for the new Student Recreation Center.
Ohhh, it's an awe-inspiring sight. The west
end of campus never looked so good.
This venture into our recreational
health has culminated in one big mess for
-commuter students and those Residents
-unlucky enough to own and operate a ve-
hicle on campus. You may be surprised to
know that the rec center has stolen about
300 parking spaces. This had to have been
Are they blind? Don't they see that park-
i ng is, was and always will be a prob-
1 e m as long as the administration
conceals problems in their poli-
cies to the point that they cease to
be policies at all and instead be-
come disfunctional sugar pills
for us to suck on? Neglect the
child long enough and he will
react adversly.
Yes, this is a big deal. This
unfairness began a long time ago
and persisted. It grew not unlike
Alice when she consumed the
pastry that said "Eat me And
it developed into one nasty
thorn in our side.
Math majors � try to add
these numbers up: At ECU, there are 33 park-
ing spaces for every 100 students. In fact, we
fall behind UNC-G, NCSU, and UNC-C by a
fairly wide margin. This was prior to the rec
center ground breaking. And don't fool your-
selves � it's just going to get worse. Pat
Gertz said so.
Parking changes will occur throughout
the semester (ensuring heated debates, at
least) as a new lot is opened and the library
expansion begins in Spring. Offered in its
quite a surprise to a few hundred students place is the suggestion: (by Pat Gertz no less!)
upon their return to campus this Monday.
Welcome back, indeed.
So instead of just whining and com-
plaining that parking "sucks" and is "just
such a pain to deal with let's give our-
selves an early ulcer (and a migraine too!):
Read on.
Students should seriously consider utiliz-
ing the services provided by ECU TRAN-

seriously consider utilizing their brains the
next time they make a decision in the future.

Whitewater scandal aborbed by media bias
There is nothing like a little
presidential controversy to start
the new year off right. Which
controversy you ask? Well, not
the further sexual misconduct
charges from those Arkansas
state troopers. It is no secret
that President
Clinton is "�"�K"w�B
sexually pro-
miscuous. We
have known
this since be-
fore the '92
elections and
still we voted
him in. Be-
sides, adultery
just furthers �bbmbmhu
Clinton's Kennedy-esque per-
sona which he so desperately
desires but will never attain.
The controversy I am in-
terested in (and you should be,
too) is the one involving the
Whitewater Development Cor-
poration. The media has tried
to downplay this story to pro-
tect their beloved Bill, but this
story is just not going to go
A quick recap for those
whose idea of news is five min-
utes of Kurt Loder. In 1978 the
Clintons created Whitewater
Development Corp. with
friends James McDougal and his
wife. The idea behind this ven-
ture was to sell lots in the Ozarks
for second homes. Why they
thought anyone would want to
buy second homes in the Ozarks
is anybody's guess. Anyway,
things did not pan out and
Whitewater went under. The
Clintons claim they lost $69,000.
Shortly a fter the Clintons
and McDougals went into busi-
ness to-
Maybe if they would
release the
documents, we would
have some evidence to
either prove or disprove
any wrongdoing by
g e t h e r
G u r a n t y
Savings and
Loan Asso-
c i a t i o n
which also
auHBHiHaHH went under.
Federal in-
vestigators have found some evi-
dence that suggests money from
Madison Savings and Loan was
used to help repay a $50,000 debt
Clinton incurred during his 1984
gubernatorial campaign.
What does all of this mean?
Heck if I know. What I do know
is that if President Clinton is in-
nocent as he claims to be then
why not disclose all information
and documents concerning his
business dealings with James
McDougal and the Whitewater
Development Corp. If President
Clinton has nothing to hide then
why is he hiding it?
There is one other question
which I think the public deserves
to have answered. Why were the
files about Whitewater removed
from the office of the president's
lawyer and adviser, Vincent Fos-
ter Jr after his suicide, but before
those investigating his suicide
could look through them? Could
the Whitewater files hold some
clue as to why Foster took his
own life?
While President Clinton has
yet to fully comment on
Whitewater others in the White
House have not been so tongue-
tied. Senior Presidential advisor
George Stephanopolous said,
"Even though there is no evidence
of wrongdoing, the political at-
tacks are still going on I think
the key words here are "no evi-
Maybe if they would release
the Whitewater documents, we
would have some evidence to ei-
ther prove or disprove any
wrongdoing by Clinton.
White House propagandist
David Gergen adds, "I just have
to tell youas the president goes
home to bury his mother, to have
the political opposition on the
warpath, hammering away, raises
all sorts of questions about what
has happened in this town
While Gergen's comment is
probably right on the mark, I have
to add that it is just as tactless to
turn around and mention the
death of the president's mother
in order to rebut the opposition.
May I suggest that "what
has happened in this town" is
that we have made a president
who cannot keep his zipper closed
or his nose clean.
What is it that Bugs Bunny,
Mickey Mouse and the Washing-
ton Redskins all have in common?
Uh, well, aside from the fact
that they all evoke gut-wrenching
laughter whenever you watch
them. Give up? Caps. You know,
baseball caps. Of course, not ex-
clusive to only these three organi-
zations, here is a multi-billion dol-
lar business worth noting. I sup-
pose this whole lucrative scheme
was brought to my attention dur-
ing Christmas break as my hus-
band and I shopped for the perfect
gifts for our friends and relatives.
As we made our way
through crowded malls, I noticed
that almost everyone was wear-
ing a baseball cap of some sort.
There were Malcolm X caps, Walt
Disney caps, Looney Tunes caps,
and any sports team you can imag-
ine is embroidered on a baseball
cap. Furthermore, in any sports
store, at least two walls are now
redesigned so as to shelve hun-
dreds of caps ranging in price from
$5 to $35.
But what really amazes me
is that this is not just a fad or a
trend; baseball caps have become
a staple in American fashion. Sim-
ply, baseball caps are cool. They
not only look great, but they say
something about the individual
wearing one atop their noggin.
Baseball caps are no longer just
about hiding a bad hair day, or
worse, an ever-increasing bald
spot, but they now reveal pride
and loyalty.
Being older than most un-
dergraduate students, I come from
a time that sporting a logo was by
association. If someone wore a
Notre Dame cap, it was because
they went to Notre Dame, or at the
very least, they were from some-
where remotely close to the area.
No more.
When I saw one of my old
professors donning a Michigan
cap, I, in an attempt to make pleas-
ant conversation, asked if he per-
haps attended the reputable
school. "No he said flatly. "Uh,
well, are you from Michigan?" I
asked hesitantly "No he again
replied, just as unenthusiastically.
"They're just, you know, cool
Oh, silly me.
I would suspect that thebase-
ball cap business has become so
big thai any president or CEO of,
say, a sporting wear company
could halt the production of all
other logo paraphenalia except
baseball caps and still have enough
revenue to pay for their lush club-
house on the 50-yard line in any
If I were one such CEO, do
you know the market I would tar-
get? Females. Why? Because
every girl looks cool in a baseball
cap. We can wear 'em sideways,
backwards or forwards, with the
bill flipped up, of course, and
what's really great is that they
serve a dual purpose: No longer
do we have to search our vanities
for that one pony-tail band, be-
cause we can simply pull our
strands through the sizing hole in
the back! Voila!
When my husband and I
decided to take a break from all
the mall commotion we found an
empty table at one of those food
courts and as I looked around, I
couldn't believe all the caps I saw.
Even though my one-year-old
daughter doesn't have enough
hair to pull through the back,
she was the cutest thing in there
as her Minnie Mouse cap perched
perfectly on her little bald head.
There is, however, one
thing you know about every per-
son who wears a cap, especially
men. I don't care how often they
deny it, but I've watched my
husband and brothers do it for
years. Any man who wears a
rap has not showered. It simply
goes without saying. Perhaps
not so much during the week,
but I guarantee you, if you see a
man on a Saturday or Sunday
wearing a cap, he has not show-
ered. It's called the 3-C effect:
clothes, cologne, cap. That's it.
I have two caps of my own,
a Cincinatti Bengab cap and a
Cincinatti Reds cap. Needless to
say, until they can prove their
worth to ride upon my peanut
head, they've both been benched
for the season.
Also, after many years of
undergraduate work, I'm hold-
ing out for that long awaited,
much coveted other cap. You
know, the one that comes with
that lovely gown. At times, I've
thought of petitioning the uni-
versity to allow graduates to
wear any cap of their choice on
graduation day.
However, there are two
drawbacks: First, no one would
want to throw their cap at the
completion of the ceremonies;
and second, you don't know who
used the excuse of their cap to
avoid showering. But there is
one definite advantage: Instead
of looking like cardboard cut-
out fools, we'd all look cool!
Caps off to the cool!
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
I cannot understand why someone cannot see
how pathetic the East Carolina football program is.
Our recruiting is-very poor. This comes after the
most successful season ECU has ever had in 1991.
We should be loaded with talent and we are pitiful.
Our coaching staff has to be a joke. I don't
believe they could coach and do well in NAIA. Of
course our head coach is where the fault lies. This
man cannot coach in major college football and he
always blames the players. Logan has even stated
that we are too young to win. Tennessee doesn't
have a starting lineman that is a senior. All we hear
on radio (whenever you can find it) and TV is that the
players are not responding. If that is true then it is
still"his fault because he should recruit players that
can listen and learn.
What I don't understand is .why can't anyone
see this. Every year that we continue this way it will
take two years to build our program back up. Dave
Hart stated Saturday Nov. 20 on the Pirate net-
work that he was pleased with the progress in the
football program. This guy is amazing. He some-
how has East Carolina supporters believing that the
football program is doing well. The fact is ECU has
not recruited even average since Logan has been
hired. The team looks like they have no idea what
they are doing on the field.
Someone needs to wake up. Dave Hart has a
lot of people deceived. All he is doing is using East
Carolina as a stepping stone to go elsewhere. He is
single handedly bringing ECU to new lows. Eco-
nomically Dave Hart is a disaster for East Carolina.
Every game attendance is dropping and will con-
tinue until a winning tradition is established. We
could pay a bigtime coach to resurrect the program
with the difference in the attendance if we were
winning. Seven times this year we have lost by 19
points or better. There is a clique at ECU that needs
removing (The Dave Hart clique).
Someone needs to tell Hart the direction you
strive to go is up. Logan has taken a team that was
11-1 Peach Bowl champ to a 5-6 season last year and
2-9 this year. This is what Hart says he is satisfied
with. This is a sad day for ECU football and athletics
as a whole. Weber State is thinking of dropping
football because of poor attendance. Clemson did
not get rid of Hatfield because he was a poor coach
but because the stadium was not full. ECU has poor
attendance because the coaching is so poor.
In summation, wake up East Carolina! Our
football program is in jeopardy. Winning is the
name of the game.
If Hart is not committed to year in, year out
winning he needs to be removed.

Westerberg finds solo career
Photo Courtesy of Sire Records
Paul Westerberg
By Daniel Willis
Staff Writer
When reflecting upon the mu-
sic scene during the Eighties, one
of the most notable and original
bands was the Replacements. In
1989, Musicmi magazine called the
Replacements "the last, best band
of the eighties
Singer, songwriter and guitar-
ist for the band, Paul Westerberg,
gradually progressed toward a solo
career during the early part of the
ineties. He supplied two songs for
the Singles soundtrack, and has re-
cently released his first solo album.
His debut is titled 14 Songs in honor
of J. D.Salinger's book Nine Stories.
In an interview provided by
Cellar Door, Westerberg said, 'Half
of the songs were written about
two years ago, right after the Re-
placements finished their last tour
and I moved into a new place. A
handful of them were written a
while ago, and some of them were
written in the studio as we were
recording. 'World Class Fad' was
bashed out in 10 minutes and re-
corded in one take. That was the
same for 'Something Is Me and
'Down Low I've never written or
recorded like that before, and I've
always wanted to
When he was asked what it
was like separating himself from
the Replacements, he seemed very
comfortable. "I pretty much sat
down as always and wrote the
songs on either acoustic guitar or
piano and fleshed them out on elec-
tric guitar Westerberg said. "I felt
very free just to write whatever I
felt that day
Although Westerberg plays
rock 'n' roll, it's not the type of
music he prefers. "The music I
chose to listen to is music I can't
write. It's jazz or classical or a lot of
blues. I love rock 'n' roll, but I'm
not terribly interested in music I
can do
"I haven't turned my back on
rock 'n' roll Westerberg said. "I
just don't necessarily scrutinizeev-
ery thing. I'll put on 'Brown Sugar'
like somebody would open a beer,
when you want a little lift
Westerberg doesn't feel the way
he once did, as far as making state-
ments or forming certain attitudes:
"The band-against-the-world thing
was how it was when we started. But
that spirit probably left halfway
through our career. I wouldn't be so
pompous to say that we were ahead
of our time, but maybe thesedays, the
attitude we cultivated is applauded
morenowand encouraged. Wespent

TV's Joker,
dies at age 86
(AP) � Cesar Romero, the actor
whose versatility won him roles
ranging from a gigolo in The Thin
Man to the Joker of the "Batman"
television series, has died. He was
Romero died Jan. 1st from
complications related to a blood
clot that developed while he
battled severe bronchitis and
pneumonia, said Gary Miereanu,
spokesman for St. John's Hospi-
tal and Health Center.
During six decades in Holly-
wood, Romero was often cast as a
gigolo or the other man, but he
claimed to have escaped the title
of Latin Lover.
"When I started in motion
pictures in 1934, they said I was
going to be the next Valentino
he recalled in 1984. "I was never
a leading man, and very seldom
did I do a picture where I got the
girl. But I was saddled with the
label because I had a Latin name.
My background is Cuban, but I'm
from New York City. I'm a Latin
from Manhattan
With his striking good looks
Romero, proved a reliable actor
in musicals, comedies, dramas
and Westerns. He made his big-
gest impact with the public as the
evil, pun-cracking Joker in the
faddish "Batman" series of the
Romero remained active into
the '90s, appearing in television
movies. He marked his 80th birth-
day as Jane Wyman's husband in
the TV series "Falcon Crest
"He was just a dream, a very,
very gentle man and a very giv-
ing person said Miss Wyman, a
friend of Romero's for more than
half a century.
Romero was born into a dis-
tinguished Cuban family in New
York City on Feb. 15, 1907. He
was the grandson of Jose Marti,
leader of the Cuban revolt against
Spanish rule.
The yen to act came when
Romero played four roles in "The
Merchant of Venice" at boarding
school. But he danced his way
onto the professional stage.
Romero danced in Broadway
shows and began acting in plays.
He was appearing in "Dinner at
Eight" when MGM signed him to
a contract and cast him as a gigolo
in The Thin Man, which starred
William Powell and Myrna Loy.
After a loanout to Warner Bros,
for Special Agent, MGM canceled

From January 14 through
March 11, 1994, the Wellington
B. Gray Gallery, will present a
major exhibition of one of
America's foremost abstract art-
ists, Gregory Amenoff. The exhi-
bition, "Gregory Amenoff:
Works on Paper, 1975�1992
was directed by Rachel
Rosenfield Lafo, Senior Curator
of The DeCordova Museum and
Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Mass
The Amenoff exhibit, orga-
nized by the DeCordova Mu-
seum and Sculpture Park, was
paid for with federal funds from
the National Endowment for the
Arts and with additional sup-
port from Jerome and Phyllis
Rappaport. The ECU showing,
the only showing in North Caro-
lina, was supported by the North
Carolina Ars Council and the
ECU Student Government Asso-
ciation Fine Arts Funding Board.
"Gregory Amenoff: Works
on Paper" traces Amenoff's ar-
tistic evolution over a 17 year
period. Amenoff admits that he
shifted away from heavy oil paint
in the late 1980s in order to du-
plicate the spontaneity and ex-
pressiveness of his watercolors,
drawings and prints.
The exhibition includes over
50 works, including wa tercolors,
pastels, mixed media, oil on pa-
per, woodcuts, monotypes and
lithographs. The exhibit will fea-
ture prints that Amenoff created
for a book of poems and a
The show also features five
paintings representing different
stylistic periods in Amenoff's
career w hich provide direct com-
parisons between these various
Gregogy Amenoff was born
in II linois, and in 1971, he moved
to Boston where he joined an
artistic community with an ex-
pressionist heritage. By the mid
70s, Amenoff's artworks vere
widely displayed in galleries and
museum exhibitions.
The artist became associated
with a new generation of local
artists who had leanings towards
gestual abstraction. His show-
ings include the "Boston Bicen-
tennial Exhibition" at Boston's
Institute of Contemporary Art
in 1976, and "Aspects of the
Seventies: Painterly Abstrac-
tion" at the Fuller Museum in
Brockton, Mass. in 1980.
After Amenoff moved to
New York City in 1979, he
achieved national recognition
when he was selected for the
1981 Whitney Biennial. His
group exhibitions from this pe-
riod include the 1985 Whitney
Biennial, the 1987 Corcoran
Gallery of Art's 40th Biennial
of American Contemporary
Painting, the 1986 Phoenix Art
Museum's American Art of the
1980s and the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, New York's
"New Narrative Painting" in
1984. The Metropolitan Mu-

Cosmodrome, the debut release
from San Francisco's MIRV. isbe-
ing promoted as a satire of that
pretentious relic of seventies arena
rock, the concept album. And
though it's not readily apparent,
the hype, for once, is true.
On the surface, Cosmodrome
seems to be nothing more than
your standard concept album. It's
the story of Roy, a kid who wants
to be a rock-and-roll star, set to
some incredibly ambitious music.
Nothing we haven't seen a mil-
lion times before. But Cosmodrome
doesn't take itself quite seriously.
Cross Pink Floyd's The Wall with
John Waters' Hairspray and you
might get the picture. Things that
might be ominous and dark be-
come ridiculous and tacky,
painted in a day-glo black.
There's a cover of the
Cantina song from Star Wars
Roy's first sexual conquest turns
into a night of torture at the hands
of an S&M queen groupie. Les
Claypool of Primus (who also pro-
duced the album) provides the
voices of some old codgers who
ramble on about people playing
guitars in the sewers. Loads, just
loads, of fun.
In the end, our hero goes to
the extreme of undergoing pain-
ful cosmetic surgery in the song
"Shave My Face Off and as a
result gets a gig at the legendary
Cosmodrome. Unfortunately,
forces beyond Roy's control
launch missile attacks that lead to
nuclear armageddon. The bombs
hit at the end of Roy's orgasmic
Cosmodrome performance as the
album, and apparently the
world, come to an end.
It's all great fun, in a nasty
sort of way. The idea that Roy's
quest for stardom is ultimately
meaningless is a nice kick in the
face to the kind of crap that
spawned this album. If you lis-
ten closely, you can hear the
pomposity deflating from a
whole bunch of Bad Company
songs as Cosmodrome thunders
to a close.
And on top of all this vi-
cious humor, we get MIRV's im-
mense guitar talent, which al-
lows him to jump from blues to
funk to heavy metal without
missing a beat. So, is Cosmodrome
the concept album for people
who hate concept albums? Well,
I hate concept albums. And I love
Cosmodrome. So I guess, just this
once, you can believe the hype.
MIRV is a fine musician, and an
innovative songwriter. Don't
miss this album.

Viacom and Blockbuster merge
NEW YORK (AP) � Viacom
made a bold grab at victory in the
prolonged takeover battle for Para-
mount, increasing itscash offer and
agreeing to merge with Blockbuster
The moves were announced
Friday, just hours before a deadline
for Viacom either to raise its bid for
Paramount or risk losing the com-
pany to Barry Diller's QVC.
Diller, a former Paramount
movie boss, has another two weeks
fo consider revising his offer fol-
lowing Viacom's new bid.
Viacom Inc. owns cable net-
works such as MTV and Showtime,
while Blockbuster Entertainment
Corp based in Fort Lauderdale,
Fla is the nation's biggest video
rental store operator.
; Both Viacom and QVC Net-
work Inc. areoffering combinations
�f eash and stock for Paramount
Communications Inc.
� ; While Viacom's offer contains
Jlktut $1 billion more cash than
QVC's offer, the overall offer is
worth slightly less, securities ana-
lysts said.
Viacom said it was raising the
(Sash portion of its offer for 50.1
percent of Paramount to $105 a
share. It had been offering $85 a
share, or about $5.1 billion, for 51
percent of the entertainment and
publishing company.
Analysts said the stock being
offered for the rest of the Paramount
stock makes tn overa U value of the
bid about $79.23 a share.
QVC's latest offer was $92 a
share, or about $5.5 billion, for 51
percent of Paramountstock. Count-
ing the stock being offered in the
second part of the deal, QVC's bid is
worth about $82 a share, analysts
However, stockholders have
been focusing on the cash portion of
the bids, because cash gives them
greater certainty about the value of
the deal in contrast to stock whose
price can vary widely.
Moreover, as long as Viacom is
able to garner just over half the
119.6 million Paramount shares, it
will control rhecompany and even-
tually complete the merger.
The Paramount board backed
the latest QVC offer after resisting
the cable shopping channel
operator's advances for several
Paramount said its board
would meet next week to consider
the revised Viacom takeover offer.

tial choice as a merger partner; the
companies announced Sept. 12 they

Doubtfire hits
the big screen
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
llie one huge hi t this holiday sea-
son has been Mrs. Doubtfire People
have flocked toitindroves, relinquish-
ing comedy at this joyous timeofyear.
Friendshave returned fromitboasting
of the film's many attributes. I had
expected littleof thefilm,butmyhopes
were raised by the positive response I
Alas, I feel like a Grinch because I
disliked thefilm.EvenRobin Williams
could not save it.
Thestory itself issimple: Manand
woman divorce, woman gets custody
of their three children, man wants to
see children so he dresses as a woman
and secures a job as a housekeeper.
What takes one sentence to convey on
paper takes 45 minutes to convey on
celluloid. By the time Williams finally
dons his feminine attire, the film has
already fizzled out.
Daniel Hillard(Williams) isanac-
torwho has nothad much work while
his wife Miranda(Sally Fields) works
upthecor. �� rateladder. When Daniel
and Miranda separate, Daniel decides
to become Mrs. Doubtfire, a elderly
English woman, whowatches thechil-
dren until Miranda returns from work.
So much film time is spent on the
relationship between Daniel and
Miranda that the inspired moments of
hilarity thatoccur whenMrs. Doubtfire
is on screen do not achieve their full
comic potential.
Not only are the first 45 minutes
of mis film painful and useless, butthe
last30 minutesareeven worse. Daniel
sets a date with his boss to discuss the
possibilities of an acting job on the
same night he agrees to spend the
evening with Miranda and the kids as
Mrs. Doubtfire. Only in the movies
switch clothes several times.
When this switching routine oc-
curred earlier in the film, it was old,
cliched and not very funny. The fact
that the director, Chris Columbus
the earlier scene for his finale epito-
mizes thepoorjudgmentpossessedby
this director.
The fact that Mrs. Doubtfire has
done so well says much more about
Robin Williams man of the film itself.
Williams had several dazzling scenes

an instant. One especially funny, but
inappropriate scene, has Williams im-
personating a bevy of characters. The
reason the scene is inappropriate is
that he performs the impersonations
while on a job search The comic effect
proves inappropriate and though the
impersonations are funny, in the con-
text of the film, they always play as
The tragedy of the film is that
Williams is not really allowed to let
loose and become Mrs. Doubtfire. In-
stead this soggy script wastes time
trying to convince the audience that
Daniel really loves his children. The
comedy gets weighted down by this
heavy-handed approach which at-
tempts to make the film into a serious
treatise on divorce instead of a light-
weight comedy.
In the hands of a more gifted di-
rector, Aerosmith's "Dude Looks Like
A Lady" would have quietly under-
scored a scene, allowing the viewer to
Instead Columbus is so proud of his
little joke, that he not only blares the

Roberts makes Pelican Brief 'worth watching
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
John Grisham, the hot novelist
this year, lias written four books. His
latest, Tlie Client, already has been
sold, and a film version starring Su-
san Sarandon is in the making. Earlier
this year, Tlie Finn, the first Grisham
novel to be turned into a film, was
released. For the holiday season, the
second adaptationofGrisham'swork,
Tlie Pelican Brief, has been released
and can be seen in multiplexes across
Where The Finn had star power
in the form of Tom Cruise, The Pelican
Briefhas star power in the form of Julia
Roberts. Her presence alone makes
The Pelican Brief worth watching. She
has an uncanny ability to captivate an
audience. Sheisneitheragreatactress
nor a great beauty but has a compel-
ling mix of charm, grace and looks
that make her a great movie star.
Vie Pelican Brief begins with tlie
b 'tal assassination of two Supreme
Col t justices. The motives behind
theki ngs remain an enigma until a
Tulane law student named Darby
Sha w (Roberts) pieces together a con-
spiracy theory thatwo'ild makeOliver
Stoneproud. Shaw presents her find-
ings to one of her la w prof essors (Sam
Shepard) who dies days later in a car
explosion designed to kill Shaw.
Shaw finds herself thrust into a
cat-and- mouse game with the crimi-
nals responsible for the slayings. She
first trusts a Washington lawyer (the
always dependable John Heard) but
then finds friendship and help from
Grantham (ably portrayed by Denzel
Washington). Grantham meets with
Shaw, is convinced of her authentic-
ity, then assists her in cultivating the
elements of story that will blow the
roof off the Oval Office.
Unlike the much superior Tlie
Firm, Tlie Pelican Bntflacks the under-
lying evil that permeated most of the
characters in the former film. Nearly
every role in 77k: Finn was filled to
perfection a Sydney Pollack's crack-
erjack direction kept the story whiz-
zing along at a breakneck pace.
Unfortunately, Tlie Pelican Brief
crawls most of tlie time and director
Alan J. Pakula wastes screen time
with too many obvious suspense ele-
ments. When a bomb is placed in
Grantham's car, the camera lingers
for what seems like minutes on the
kev in the ignition. When a character
is killed in a hotel room, a closet door
slides open little by little by little. By
the time the murder actually hap-
pens, the audience is relieved not to
have to watch anvmoreofsuchdrawn
out suspense.
Papula saps the life from the
story by gross misjudgments like
these. Instead of sitting on the edge
of the seat, tlie viewer has snuggled
comfortablv into it, intrigued by the
story line but bored by the overt,
suspenseful,cinematic contrivances.
The plot itself keeps the viewer
guessing. Half the fun of the film is
figuring out the title. (1 suppose if
one has read tlie book, then half the
reason for seeing the film version is
now gone.) Enough characters are
introduced to engage the viewer's
mind throughout the film.
Roberts and Washington steal
the show. They both embody Holly-
wood�which is not really a huge
compliment. Together they enter-
tain sufficiently- Though other crit-
ics have disagreed, I found the dis-
tance between the two leads refresh-
ing. Not everyone thrown together
in situations like the one in 77it Peli-
can Brief' has to fall in love. Seeing
mutual respect between the charac-
ters sometimes plays much better
than a passionate romance.
Tlie Pelican Brief provides ample
entertainment but not much more.
As one of the two or three Americans
whostillasnotreadaGrisham novel,
I found The Finn a much better ad-
vertisement for Grisham's
storytelling ability than The Pelican

quality lace produced by small
French firms. Prices run fromabout

and beads.
Today, lace is turning up
in all facets of fashion, from demure
toaggressivelysexy. Lacy sheers have

Solstiss and other top-of-the-line
French companies, bridalwear and
lingerie are a small fraction of the
business. Designers now use lace in
everything from thigh-high stock-
ings to couture ball gowns.
Traditional weaves like
chantilly lace are in high demand. So
are the myriad modern variations
such as lace embroidered with intri-
cate beaded patterns, sequins and
metallic threads in an awe-inspiring
range of styles and shades. (Solstiss
makes more than 1,500 patterns.)
Classic to cutting edge, de-
signers are using lace in new and
unconventional ways. Karl Lagerfeld
inserts sheer panels in floor-length
black dresses. Gianni Versace com-
binesdelicatebitsof lace with chunky
crochet. Donna Karan and Christian
Lacroix finish dressy eveUr en-
sembles with lace pumps and spike-
heeled boots.
One of the latest looks is a
short skirt bordered in black lace, a
compromise on hem length. Yves
Saint Laurent hems couture as well
as ready-to-wear dresses and skirts
with lengths of lace; Saint Laurent
and others stitch it into petticoats to
be worn under longer chiffon lace
skirts. Besides decorating flirty styles
such as frilly baby doll dresses, lace
peeks out of jacket and pants cuffs,
incongruously paired with heavier
fabrics like wool.
Even in black, lace is no
longer reserved fornight. Inhisspring
collection, Bill Blass layers a lace jacket
over a gray pin-striped suit, injecting
unexpected sexiness into a tailored
daytime look in a new twist on office
to cocktails dressing.
For unabashed nighttime
glamour, lace is always in style.
Pamela Dennis, a young Seventh

kling evening dresses, says there's
nothing like lace for understated sexi-

For the designer many con-
sider the maestro of American glam-
our, French lace has always been a
staple. Geoffrey Beene, who just
celebrated his 30th year in fashion,
uses it in every collection.
"Lace is alluring he
says, "and 1 don't use that word
much anymore. It's the oldest fab-

Beene uses lace for edg-
ing and details in accessories as
well as in major pieces. A high-
light of his spring collection is a
reembroidered lace bolero, black
with yellow petals. Even though
in the line, the jacket can be rolled
up to fit in the palm of the hand,
Beene says.
Beene's jacket is made
with Solstiss lace, great news for
Francois Damide. But fashion is
fickle. Runway shows are like fi-

iously waits to see where his lace

Broadway no guarantee for success
is immune to failure on Broadway.
Work there long aiough and you're
bound to trip over a turkey.
It's a fact, espedally this sea-
son when the busiest fall in a decade
produced more than its share of un-
successful productions � seven fi-
nandal flops, so far, and it's only J anu-
The unfortunate roll call in-
duded such fine work as Brian Friel's
"Wonderful Tennessee one of the
most moving plays of the year, and
"The Kentucky Cyde a two-part,
six-hour historical drama thatarrived
inNew Yorkbolstered witha Pulitzer
Prize and considerable success in Se-
attle and Los Angeles. It lost $2 mil-
lion, a record for a play, during its
monthlong run.
Then there were outright
stinkers Uke"MixedEmotionsawan
little comedy that somehow ended
up on Broadway instead of television.
Or genuine miscalculations like "The
Red Shoes the great Jule Styne's
misguided attempt to turn a classic
ballet film into a musical.
After nearly two months of
previews and highly publicized fir-
ingsofcastandcrew, "The Red Shoes"
opened on a Thursday in mid-De-
cember. It closed the following Sun-
day at a loss of nearly $8 million,
making it one of Broadway's most
expensive duds ever.
Styne's impeccable theater
credentials�he'sthemanwho wrote
the music for "Gypsy "Funny Girl"
and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"
among others � were no guarantee
his new show would be a hit.
In 1943, while basking in the
glow of two Broadway hits, "Okla-
homa and "Carmen Jones Oscar
Hammerstein II took an ad in the
show-biz paper Variety. It proudly
listed hisfivepreviousshows,all flops,
and then prodaimed, "I've done it
before and I can do it again
"On Broadway, whenyou're
good, you're very, very good, and
when you're bad, you're terrible
Hammerstein said later in explaining
why he advertised his unlucky shows.
Yet in the 1920s, '30s and
and actorscould recoverquickly from
a disastrous Broadway experience. In
1926, for example, Richard Rodgers
and Lorenz Hart had four musicals
produced in New York and one in
London. Notallof them were hits,but
the more successful productions
erased memories of the flops.
Howard Ashman, one of
the creators of off-Broadway's "Little
Shop of Horrors flopped on Broad-
way with "Smile Its failure drove
him to California where he and his
partner Alan Menken found success
writing scores for Disney, including
Vie Little Mermaid and Beauty and tlie
Beast. Ashman died inl991 before he
completed a third Disney cartoon,
Ironically, the popularity of
Beauty and tlie Beast as an animated
featurepersuaded Disney thatitmight
work on Broadway. The stage adap-
tationbeginsperformancesatthe Pal-
ace Theater in March with Tim Rice
helping Menken fill out the score for
New York.
Disney owns the movie
rights to 'Twilight of tlie Golds an-
other flop this season. The rights to
Jonathan Tolins' comedy-drama,
which expounded the theory that
homosexuality is genetic, were pur-
chased before the play's disappoint-
ing Broadway run. Whether the film
will be made is anybody's guess, but
the play's movie sale should ease
Tolins' finandal burden and, one
hopes, make it easier for him to write
as possible.
Like "The Kentucky Cyde
'Twilight of the Golds" had great
success out of town, in this case at the
Pasadena Playhouse in California.
Broadway is littered with the ghosts
of playsand musicals�does anyone
remember productions like "Status
Quo Vadis "Warp "Hahooley"
and "Mail"?�that were huge hits in
the hinterlands, only to die in New
Broadway these days issim-
ply more inhospitable to serious the-
ater. Theatergoers, mostly an older
audience,don'tsupport drama as they
did in the past, and mostof them go to
only one play a year.
Thirty years ago, Frank D.

edly different. Reviews were mixed
to negative, and "Any Given Day"
expired unnoticed after a few weeks.
also damaged the cause of the Broad-
way Alliance, a cost-cutting effort by
producers to lower production costs
and ticket prices. Even with the low-
est top ticket price on Broadway, $35,
"Any Given Day" didn't generate
many sales.
Then there's the one fall fail-
ure that didn't even make it to New
York before it collapsed. "Paper

Universal signed him for three
years and cast him in Tlie Good
Fairy, Hold 'em Yale, Diamond im
and other films. Darryl Zanuck,
who had newly formed Twentieth
Centurv, borrowed the actor for
Cliveof India, Cardinal Richelieu and
other films. When Universal de-
clined to raise his salary, Romero
signed with Zanuck, who had
merged his company with Fox.
� Romero remained at 20thCen-
tury Fox for 15 years, often mak-
ing five or six movies a year. He
appeared with Shirley Temple in
Wee Willie Winkie and The Little
Princess, and with Sonja Henie in
Happy Landing and Wintertime. He
was a regular in musicals, includ-
ing The Great American Broadcast,
Weekend in Havana, Springtime in
the Rockies, Coney Island, Orchestra

He appeared as Cortez in Cap-
tain from Castile and portrayed the
Cisco Kid in several of the light
adventure films.
After leaving Fox, Romero
kept busy in such films as The Lost
Continent, Vera Cruz and Around
the World in 80 Days.
Romero never married. He ex-
plained in 1984: "How could I,
when I had so many responsibili-
ties? Could I tell a girl: 'Let's get
married and you can come and

ECU shuts down Pat's "Paul-ball"

Paul Westhead's high scoring offense was put to the test by the Pirate
defense and the Bucs stood tall to the task behind leader Lester Lyons.
By Brad Oldham
Staff Writer
A capacity crowd filled
Minges Coliseum last night to
watch the ECU Pirates romp over
the Patriots of George Mason Uni-
versity, 86-72. The Pirates used a
patient, spread-out offensive at-
tack against the well-known run-
and-gun style of Patriots head
coach Paul Westhead in their vic-
torv. ECU is now 9-3 overall and 2-
0 in the CAA conference, theirbest
start since the 1956-57 season and
the best conference start since the
1980-81 season.
"We did all the things we
needed to do to make them play
the way we wanted them to play
said East Carolina head coach
Eddie Payne after the win. "It's a
lot harder for a fast team to play
slow than the other way around.
This was a very difficult game to
coach. I wasn't comfortable until
there was about 40 seconds left in
the game. The guys really adapted
to the game plan and understood
what was needed to win
The Pirates got the Minges
crowd behind them early with a
three-point play by Kareem
Richardson andathunderingdunk
by Lester 1 A'ons causing a worried
Westhead to call an early time-out.
The George Mason press
caused some early problems for
the ECU backcourt, with Troy
Manns getting help from Curtis
McCants, who shot 6-9 from the
floor, to stav close through the first
A spread-out scoring attack
by the Pirates helped keep the Pa-
triots from moving into the transi-
tion game and running up the
points like the "Paul-ball" style
that Westhead is aiming for.
Lester Lyons, who led altECU
scorers with 20 points, said, "We
knew that if we passed the ball
around we would eventually get
the good shot. You could easily get
caught up in the moment playing

Last season, ECU's schedule

Pirates went into the locker room
with a four-point lead, 40-36.
Junior center Anton Gill, who
added 15 points, started thesecond
half with a three-point play. From
there, the Pirates went on an early
tear with freshmen Tim Basham
and Skipp Schaefbauer coming off
the bench to help ECU pull off a 26-
7 run.
Senior Wilbert Hunter led the
ECU defense, blocking three shots

ECU handled the Mason full-
court press extremely well. GMU
forces their opponents intoan aver-
age of 22 turnovers per game, but
ECU only turned the ball over 10
times all game (five under their
season average).
The Pirates had ample oppor-
tunities to force shots on the transi-

chose instead to pull the ball out
and pass the ball around in the half-
court set-up to get the good shot.

Security beefed up to protect athletes
(AP) � The chief of security
for the Winter Olympics has as-
sured athletes they will be safe dur-
ing the Feb. 12-27 Games in
Lillehammer, Norway.
Ame Huuse, commander of
the Olympic police force in
Lillehammer, said security mea-
sures were sufficient to prevent the
type of attack made on U.S. figure
skater Nancy Kerrigan.
Kerrigan, a favorite for the
Olympicgold medal, wasassaulted
bv a club-wieldingmanafteraprac-
tice session Thursday at the U.S.
championships in Detroi t. Her knee
injuries forced her to pull out of the
competition Friday.
Huuse said there should be no
need to increase or revise security
at the Games because such inci-
dents had already been taken into
"We are prepared to avoid
these type of things he said in a
telephone interview Friday. "It
would really surprise me if that
kind of incident would happen here
in Lillehammer
Huuse said police and bon.b-
sniffing dogs are checking all the
Olvmpic venues. By the end of the
month, all will be secured and
closed to the public.
"We will have police officers at
every venue Huuse said. "At the

The police chief heads a force
of 2,770officers, including 500 mili-
tary personnel. And by the time the
Games start, one-third of the entire
Norwegian police force will be sta-
tioned in the Olympic zone, Huuse
The International Olympic
Committee on Friday reiterated
its confidence in Lillehammer's
security plans.
Security has already been
tightened in view of concerns that
Norway's mediation role in the
recent Israeli-Palestinian accord
could inspire terrorist attacks. Or-
ganizers are also worried about
possible protests against
Norway's commercial whale
But Gerhard Heiberg, presi-
dent of the organizing committee,
said recentlv that no tanks and
soldiers with automatic weapons

Chopper found faulty
(AP) � Mechanical failure
caused the July helicopter crash that
killed NASCAR driver Davey
Allison, according to a $25 million
lawsuit filed by his estate.
lawyers for Allison's family, said
last Wednesday that experts hired
by the estate had determined that a
part linked to the helicopter's collec-
tive�astick used tocontrol flight�
The chopper, with Allison at the
controls, crashed in the infield of
Talladega Superspeedway on July
12. Allison died the next day from
head injuries.
The lawsuit named McDonnell
Douglas HelicopterSystemsofMesa,
Ariz. Company spokesman Hal
Klopper declined comment on the
suit, filed last month.
The suit was filed on behalf of
Davey Allison Racing Enterprises
Inc Tommy Allison, as executor of
Allison's estate; and driver Red
Farmer, who was in the helicopter
with Allison and was injured hi the
Named as defendants along
with McDonnell Douglas were un-
named people and companies re-
sponsible for the design, manufac-
ture, sale, inspection, maintenance
and repair of the aircraft, a Hughes
369-C helicopter that Allison had
only had for a few weeks.
McDonnell Douglas bought
Hughes Aircraft and is responsible
for its products, said Thompson,
Federal investigators said wit-
nesses reported that Allison's heli-
copter was within inches of landing
on a fenced-in parking lot near a
building when it went out of con-
The aircraft hit a 10-foot-high
chain fence, lost its tail and plunged
to the ground onitsrightside. Farmer
has said Allison was nearly on the
ground when the helicopter sud-
denly lurched upward, "went
crazy began spinning and turned
upside down.
The National Transportation
Safety Board has yet to determine
what caused the accident.
Also unresolved is a claim filed
by Stevens Racing Products of
Mooresville, N.C. The company,
which had the helicopter before
Allison, contends the driver had
agreed to swap a Piper Aerostar
airplane for the Hughes 369-C heli-
copter before his death.
The Stevens Racing complaint
alleges Allison was "negligent in
the operation of the helicopter" and
McDonnell Douglas HelicopterSys-
tems also was to blame because the
helicopter was unreasonably dan-
gerous and defective.
Stevens Racing is seeking either
theairplaneormoney from Allison's
estate or McDonnell Douglas,
whichever is found responsible for
the crash.
Arbitration season opens
(AP) � It's that time of year
baseball owners hate: salary arbi-
tration season.
Last Wednesday was the first
of nine days in which major leagu-
ers are able to file for arbitration, a
process in which an arbiter selects
either the salary proposed by the
player or the one offered by the club.
While no one stepped forward
at the start, Craig Grebeck reduced
the number eligible to 112 by agree-
ing to a $660,000, one-year contract
with the Chicago White Sox.
Most players will file Jan. 14,
the final day, and exchange figures
with their clubs Jan. 18. For players
who don't settle, hearings will be
held Feb. 1-18.
Last season, the 118 players in
arbitration increased their salaries
by an average of 110 percent.
Grebeck's raise was a lot less, an
increase of just $27300. The 29-year-
old hit .226 last with one home run
and 12 RBIs in 72 games.
Three of the players who be-
came free agents Dec. 20 when their
teams declined to tender 1994 con-
tracts agreed to new deals Wednes-
Left-hander Steve Frey, who
made $525,000 last year with the
California Angels, got a two-yeai
contract horn the San Francisco Gi-
ants, a deal believed to be worth
$915,000 per season. Frey was 2-3
forCalifornia lastseason witha 2.98
ERA and 13 saves.
Tom Lampkin, a catcher and
outfielder for the Milwaukee Brew-
ers last year was given a minor
league contract by the Giants.
Right-hander John Habyan, let
goby the KansasCity Royals, agreed
to a minor league contract with the
St. Louis Cardinals. He gets a
$250,000 contract if he makes the
major-league club and the chance
to earn up to $250,000 more in bo-
nuses if he pitches in 40 games.
Habyan, 29, was 2-1 with one
save and an ERA last year for Kan-
sas City.
Among regular free agents, in-
fielder-outfielder Jerry Browne and
the Florida Marlins agreed to a
$650,000, one-year contract, a raise
of $25,000. Browne hit .250 in 76
games for the Oakland Athletics
last season and played six positions.

Broadcasters on prowl
for Panther radio rights
(AP) � Capitol Broadcasting
Co. and Jefferson-Pilot Communi-
cations are the leading candidates
to acquire the radio broadcasting
rights to Carolina Panthers football
games, according to a published
Team executives in Charlotte
caster by the end of January.
General manager Mike
MeCormack wouldn't reveal names
in an interview with Tlie News &
Observer of Raleigh. He did say that
he preferred an organization that
has experience setting up a radio
networkcovering multiple markets.
"We would like someone to
give us complete coverage so if
somebody is driving from Charles-
ton to Raleigh, they could hear ev-
erything he said. "Our goal is to
be on more stations that the Wash-
ington Redskins, who lead with 103
right now
Industry sources told the news-
paper that those requirements mean
the competition to air the Panthers
has probably narrowed to two
North Carolina homegrown broad-
casting companies.
Both Capitol, based in Raleigh,
and Jefferson-Pilot, based in Char-
lotte, have the experience, financial
resources and large sports networks.
Radio coverage of the Panthers
should be lucrative. NFL games
command an estimated $2,000 to
$3,000 for each 30-second commer-
cial that is aired network-wide. By
comparison, the same spotaired on
a single local station brings only
$200 to $300.
At the same time, the cost to
acquire radio broadcast rights has
escalated considerably. In 1976, the
Seattle Seahawks sold radio rights
for their new franchise for $200,000
per season. Adjusted for inflation,
that translates to $512,000 in 1993. A
trade magazine recently pegged the
at $2.5 million.
None of the parties involved in
Panther discussions will talk about
the finances.
Radio is the onlv major broad-
casting prize left for when the team
takes the field in 1995. Television
rights to the Panthers regular-sea-
son games are secured by the major
networks through their contracts
with the NFL. Television rights to
preseason games still are available,
but those offer less revenue because
of the short schedule of games and
broadcast stipulations such as the
demand for sellouts in order for the
contests to be televised locally.
Both contenders for the Pan-
thers' broadcast rights have proven
Capitol's radio network divi-
sion has deals with more than 300
stations in 35 states to air football
and basketball games from, among
others, the Washington Redskins
and Washington Bullets, North
Carolina State and Duke.
"lefferson-Pilot may be a for-
midable contender said George
Habel, general manager of Capi tol 's
radio network. "But the fact that
the Panthers ha ve portrayed them-
selves as a regional team and we're
in Raleigh should work in our fa-
vor � at least, we hope that's how
they'll see it
Jefferson-Pilot's holdings in-
cluded three televisionstations and
13 radio stations in the Southeast,
Colorado and California. Its televi-
sion network rights include Atlan-
tic Coast Conference and South-

Bowden finally
gets champions
No more wide rights
(AP) � A close friend with
two national championships al-
ready in tow once told Bobby
Bowden he'd get his when he least
expected it. Though Bowden prob-
ably didn't believe it, and he al-
most certainly didn't realize it until
the moment it actually happened,
Joe Paterno turned out to be right.
Still, credit Bowden with this
nuch: Even if he didn't know
wi, -n, he never doubted he'd get
at least one.
"There are some things I'm
afraid of, some things I'm pessi-
mistic about, that I don't talk
about. But one thing I've always
felt is that one of these days I'll
"I wasn't in a hurry, maybe
because I figured the longer this
thing goes, the longer I get to live.
If I'd had to wait until I was 70,
that would have been fine, too.
"But I always felt Bowden
said, "that somehow it would hap-
What seemed strange, by com-
parison, might have been all the
other things that didn't happen
once he became the king of the
college football hill. In fact, except
! for the fact there were 81,000 or so
people screaming on every side of
him, the first day of the rest of
Bowden's life began pretty much
like the climactic moments of the
previous one.
Which is to say there was still
work to be done.
After spending 27 seasons and
who-knows-how-many sleepless
nights waiting for the chance to
pose just once alongside the cham-
pionship trophy, Bowden was do-
ing just that two Sundays ago
when an aide cut the proceedings
short. It seems the coach had to be
somewhere else. Something about
a kid who could help him do this
posing thing again a few years
down the road.
On this particular day, the
peripatetic, 64-year-old Mr.
Bowden may have owned the big-
gestname in the college game. But
he also knew that to keep it front
and center, he was going to have
to convince some kid who prob-
ably hadn't started shaving to sign
on with the Florida State Class of
"I won't be able to savor this.
Jslo sir Bowden said. "To be hon-
est with you, I won't be able to
I savor this until after recruiting sea-
son is over Then you can begin
to reflect back on the last season
Maybe that's a good thing. A
man could go crazy thinking too
long and too hard about how
something he'd chased his entire
life�had seen slip from his grasp
too painfully too many times to
remember � had been dropped,
mercifully, into his lap.
Paterno, the Perm State coach
who is close to both Bowden and
Nebraska coach Tom Osborne,
had tried to tell both men that was
the wav it would happen. And for
Bowden if not Osborne, Saturday-
night, when Nebraska kicker
Byron Bennett lined up a 45-yard
field goal with one second remain-
ing on the clock, became the mo-
ment it did.
Of course, it wasn't quite that
easy. Like a motion picture the
studio is still trying to decide how
to finish, this Orange Bowl had
two different endings. And both
toyed with Bowden's already-
frayed nerve endings.
The first came when
Cornhusker receiver Trumane Bell
caught a pass, was dragged down
at the FSU 28-yard line and
Bowden's players doused him
with water in premature celebra-
tion. The second came after the
referees restored order, put time
back on the clock, put Nebraska in
position to crush Bowden's dream
� and Bennett missed.
Texas A&M under probation again
(AP) � The NCAA praised
and punished Texas A&M
University's football program all
in one announcement.
While complimenting admin-
istration efforts to comply with
NCAA rules, the NCAA slapped
the Aggies with a five-year proba-
tion and banned them from televi-
sion and a bowl game next season.
The announcement came
Wednesday, following an investi-
gation thatfound nine players were
paid for summer jobs that included
no work. The NCAA told the
Aggies they didn't exercise close
enough control over its summer
jobs program.
The sanctions could have been
worse � much worse.
NCAA officials said they con-
sidered issuing the death penalty,
a two-year ban on football at Texas
A&M, but said cooperation by
school officials swayed them from
that punishment.
"One reason we're so frus-
trated is that we ve worked so hard
and still had this one isolated case
said Aggies head coach R.C.
Slocum. "They found that we were
doing an outstandingjob. Thecom-
mittee cited us for having an out-
standing compliance program
Texas A&M told the NCAA in
a 1,227-page report that it should
not be held accountable for the
actions of players during summer
jobs. The report said the players
received a total of $27,800. Of that,
$17,855 was unearned, it said.
Dean Gage, the university's
interim president, said the school
had no plans to appeal the sanc-
"This issue is a single, isolated
case and we regret that this inci-
dent will impact negatively thou-
sands Gage said.
Heestimated theschool would
lose about $2 million because of
the TV and bowl bans. Athletic
director WallyGroff said therewas
plenty of money in reserve so no
programs would be cut.
The NCAA disagreed with as-
sertions by Texas A&M officials
that they had no way of knowing
what students did away from cam-

The East Carolinian 23
(AP) � Nearly a year after de-
fensive coordinator Dave
Wannstedt left Dallas to coach the
Chicago Bears, the Cowboys may
be on the verge of losing offensive
mastermind Norv Turner.
The Washington Redskins,only
a matter of hours after firing first-
year coach Richie Petitbon, received
permission last Tuesday from Cow-
boys owner Jerry Jones to interview
"I'd be awfully interested, and
again you still want to sit down and
talk about specifics and details and
all of those things, but it sure seems
like a great opportunity Turner
said after learning of Washington's
interest. "If I am contacted, I cer-
tainly am interested
That hadn't happened by last
Tuesday night, but appears to be a
certainty. Cowboys spokesman
Rich Dalrymple said he expected
the Redskins to interview Turner as
soon as the playoffs end.
"The interview will not take
away from the Cowboys' prepara-
tion for the playoffs Jones said.
Dallas had a first-round bye
last weekend.
Turner and Washington gen-
eral manager Charley Casserly chat-
ted three weeks ago on the field at
Texas Stadium prior to the Cow-
boys'38-3 victory over the Redskins.
Meanwhile, Turner also ap-
pears to be on the short list in At-
lanta, where the Falcons fired Jerry
Glanville last Tuesday.
Petitbon, whose success as de-
fensive coordinator helped the
Redskins to three Super Bowls, was
let go a year after he succeeded Joe
Gibbs. Wracked by injuries and age,
Washington � which began the
season with a st unning 35-16 upset
of defending Super Bowl champion
Dallas�finished 4-12 for its worst
showing in tliree decades.
"With regret and after much
thought, I have decided to release
Richie Petitbon as head coach of the
Washington Redskins owner Jack
meeting with the coach for more
than an hour.
"It was a done deal said the
55-year-old Petitbon, a veteran of
35 years in the NFL as a player and
coach. Asked if he thoughthecould
have changed Cooke's mind,
Petitbon said no.
Glanville, 6-10 this year and 28-
38 in four seasons with the Falcons,
has been an NFL head coach since
1985, when he took over the Hous-
ton Oilers from Hugh Campbell.
While he never won a division
championship, his antics�includ-
e Turner
ing leaving tickets for Elvis Presley
and James Dean � made him one
of the league's better-known
But the bottom line was win-
ning, and Glanville came up short.
"We felt it necessary to make
this change now so we can start
early in making the right decisions
for '94 Falcons president Taylor
Smith said. "Many of the reasons
we did not make the playoffs this
season are not the fault of Jerry
Glanville, but the head coach is ul-
timately judged on the won-lost
record of the team
Glanville had for a time this
season elevated the Falcons to the
statusof contender. Atlanta stunned
both NFC East champion Dallas and
NFC West winner San Francisco to
stand 6-7 on Dec. 11.
But the Falcons lost to non-play-
off teams Washington, Cincinnati
and Phoenix to finish 6-10.
The usually talkative Glanville
was not immediately available for
"I think you judge yourself by
whether you're in the playoffs or
not he said. "If you're not in the
playoffs, you've had a bad year
Tumerand June Jones, Atlanta's
offensive coordinator, are believed
to be the top choices of the Falcons.

Coslet refuses team's demands
(AP) � Remember the ex-
cited guy on the New York Jets
sideline last season who gave the
choke sign after Miami's Pete
Stoyanovich missed a field goal
late in the game?
That was Pete Carroll when
he was the Jets' defensive coor-
dinator. On Friday, Carroll re-
placed the fired Bruce Coslet as
the Jets' head coach and said he
wasn't sure if his sideline out-
bursts would end.
"It depends on the way the
game is going said a smiling
Carroll. "You have to pick and
choose times to be emotional.
It's instinctive
The Jets went with their in-
stincts and hired Carroll after
Coslet, who doubled as his own
offensive coordinator, refused to
give up that role and was fired
with a year left on his contract.
"This is the chance of a life-
time the 42-year-old Carroll
said. "Unfortunately, it comes
on the heels of a good friend's
firing, that's why my feelings are
Asked if he would relinquish
his role as defensive coordina-
tor, Carroll said, "I don't see me
in that role, it's not the format.
That was the problem with
Coslet's biggest problem was
the inability of his offense to pro-
duce points. The Jets were 7-4 at
one point, but lost four of their
final five games to finish 8-8 and
miss the playoffs for the third
time in Coslet's four years.
Over the last six games, in
fact, the Jets managed just three
touchdowns and 36 points, while
Boomer Esiason � Coslet's
buddy from Cincinnati � was
ineffective down the stretch af-
ter starting the season so well.
When Jets general manager
Dick Steinberg met with Coslet
on Monday, he told the coach to
get an offensive coordinator.
Coslet refused and Steinberg
knew it was time for a change.
The Jets released a statement
from Coslet.
"I'm sorry I won't get the
opportunity to finish what I
started it read. "I leave know-
ing the Jets are a much better
team than when I arrived
The Jets also fired three as-
sistants � tight ends coach Paul
Alexander, special teams coach
Al Roberts and receivers coach
Chip Myers. While Carroll has
yet to name his coordinators, it's
expected he will promote defen-
sive line coach Greg Robinson
and quarterbacks coach Walt
Coslet, 26-38 with the Jets,
was the third head coach fired
this week, joining Richie Petitbon
of the Washington Redskins and

(AP) � When Detroit Pistons
star lsiah Thomas retires, he re-
portedly will become general man-
ager and part owner of the club he
led to two NBA championships.
Thomas agreed to a deal that
will pay the 12-time All-Star $55
million after he hangs up his uni-
form, the Detroit Free Press and The
Detroit News said in today's edi-
tions. The negotiations reportedly
followed a meeting Monday with
owner William Davidson.
According to the News source,
Thomas also will receive 10 per-
cent of Davidson's sports empire,
which includes the Pistons, The
Palace of Auburn Hills and the
Pine Knob Music Theater.
In addition to heading the
team's basketball operations, the
agreement calls for Thomas to re-
ceive a one-year contract exten-
sion with a balloon payment esti-
mated to be somewhere between
$7 to $12 million, the Mres said.
The balloon payment will be
on Thomas' player contract, so the
money will count against the Pis-
tons' salary cap.
Pistons president Tom Wilson,
reached by telephone Tuesday
night, declined comment to the re-
ports,saying, "We'renotcomment-
ing on anything. The only comments
will come from Bill and Lsiah
Thomas, 32, is expected to re-
tire after this season and assume his
management duties, the Free Press
The Pistons said details will be
disclosed Thursday.
Thomas, who has played all 13
of his NBA seasons with the Pis-
tons, was drafted second overall in
1981 out of Indiana University. He
led Detroit to three straight trips to
the NBA Finals and to titles in 1989
and 1990.
