Alarms malfunction in Clement Hall fire
By Tammy Zion
Staff Writer
A kitchen fire disrupted
sleeping Clement Hall residents
at 5:00 a.m. last Friday morning,
despite malfunctioning alarms.
Fire alarms did not alert students
on floors one through five because
wires above the kitchen unit fused
together and failed due to heat,
officials said. Resident advisors
evacuated students bv pounding
on doors.
Unattended rice started the
fire on the sixth floor, which was
contained to the kitchen area. The
flames were extinguished by Pub-
lic Safety officers before fire fight-
ers arrived. Ema- uel Amaro, di-
rector of housing services, esti-
mated the damage to be around
$5,000.
Two students were taken to
Fitt County Memorial Hospital.
One was treated for smoke inha-
lation and the other for asthmatic
problems.
The resident responsible for
the fire was apparently trying to
stop the flames when she suf-
fered smoke inhalation, police
said.
"Our officers did get in there
and were able to get her out
said Keith Knox, ECU Crime Pre-
vention officer.
The system shut-down sig-
naled Public Safety. Officer John
Umphlet and I.t. Bill Reichstein
arrived on the scene at 5:09 a.m.
"At first, we all thought it
was a fire drill said Cherry
Nixon, a seventh floor resident.
"By the time I reached the fifth
floor you could smell smoke, and
by the third floor the whole stair-
case was filled
Some residents on floors six
through 10 could not hear the
alarms until roommates woke
them up.
"My roommate woke me up
and said 'Come on, get your
clothes on, let's go said Jamie
Stamper, a ninth floor resident.
Sixth floor Resident Advi-
sor Elizabeth Bradbury has had
previous concerns about the fire
alarms. Last semester she con-
tacted the Environmental Health
and Safety, and Housing depart-
ments to check the alarms.
"What scared me was that
the fire alarms only went off on
the sixth through tenth floors
Bradbury said. "The rest of the
advisors had to go and wake ev-
eryone up manually
Bradbury expressed concern
for student safety because

Quake rocks So. California
LOS ANGELES (AP) � A
severe earthquake struck South-
ern California before dawn yes-
terday, collapsing freeways, ig-
niting dozens of fires and knock-
ing out power across vast swaths
of the region. At least ten people
died.
The quake, centered in the
San Fernando Valley, shook
buildings from San Diego to Las
Vegas. Both Los Angeles Mayor
Richard Riordan and California
Gov. Pete Wilson declared states
of emergency.
"This place was moving like
a jackhammer was going at it
said Richard Goodis of Sherman
Oaks, an affluent San Fernando
Valley suburb. "Our bedroom
wall tore away- I was looking at
the ceiling one moment, then I
was looking at the sky. I thought
we were dead
The quake struck at 4:31
a.m and measured a prelimi-
nary 6.6 on the Richter scale, said
Kate Hutton, a seismologist at
the California Institute of Tech-
nology in Pasadena. Although
not as strong as some quakes in
recent years, it was unusually
destructive because of its loca-
tion in a populous area.
The quake buckled an
overpass of the Santa Monica
Freeway in Los Angeles and col-
lapsed an intersection of two
major freeways in the San
Fernando Valley � Interstates 5
and 14, known locally as the
Golden State and Antelope Val-
ley freeways. Cars could be seen
crushed beneath the collapsed
intersection, and at least one per-
son � an unidentified police
motorcycle officer�was crushed
to death.
Elsewhere, motorists
driving north from Los Angeles
on the Golden State Freeway saw
fires raging out of control on both
sides of the road, red balls of
flame exploding 30 feet in the air.
Fires also were reported in
Sherman Oaks and elsewhere in
the region.
The quake derailed a 64-car
freight train carrying hazardous
material between the communi-
ties of Chatsworth and
Northridge, according to South-
ern Pacific Railroad spokesman
Mike Furtney. He said there were
no immediate reports of leaks or
injuries.
The epicenter of today's
quake was Northridge, accord-
ing to Lucy Jones, a seismologist
at theCalifornia Institute of Tech-
nology. Northridge is a college
community in the valley 20 miles
northwest of downtown Los An-
geles.
The San Fernando Valley,
which spreads for 50 miles north
of downtown, is a suburban ex-
panse of 3 million people. Most
of it is within the city of Los An-
geles.
U.S. Geological Survey
spokesman Robert Wesson said
of the quake: "It's not the Big
One we hear about so often. The
real impact of this earthquake is
because it has occurred in a met-
ropolitan area
He added that he was sur-

Housekeeping plays important role
By Tammy Zion
Staff Writer
Have you noticed ECU's
housekeeping staff lately? They
are wearing new uniforms this
month and some are doing a lot
more than just cleaning.
The housekeeping staff
voted on three types of uniforms.
Both the men and women chose
the same color, dark blue.
Why do they need new uni-
forms?
"In order to improve the ap-
pearance and image of the house-
keeping staff and department
said Rick Karabiac, academic cam-
pus manager A lot of the house-
keeping staff have expressed that
they really like them "
Mrs. Mattie Suggs likes her
new uniform. She works in Cotten
Hall, and has been at ECU for ten
years.
Her days are not made up of
merely modeling her new uni-
form, however. Many students
have no idea the extent of her, and
other staff members duties.
First on her daily agenda is
checking the showers. She then
cleans the office, washes the front
doors and sweeps the front porch.
She also cleans the front lobby,
break room and computer room.
All this before lunch, and often
before many students groggily
rise for their own daily activities.
That may sound like a lot of
hard work, but Suggs loves her
job. Before coming to ECU, she
worked in a sewing plant and says
there was too much pressure in-
volved in meeting production re-
quirements. Suggs said she likes
working around students much
more.
"I counsel y'all, especially
when you're going to have tests
Suggs said. "I have to be mothers
for you, pray for you so you can

Greenville Fire Department
Battalion Chief Ron Moore said
this is not an uncommon occur-
rence.
"There are probably very
few cities anywhere in the coun-
try that have ladders tall enough
to reach their tallest buildings
Moore said.
In the event of a disastrous
fire, fire rescuers would have to
go into a building to rescue stu-
dents.
"We have a good working
knowledge of the dorms Mcxire
said.
Periodically fire fighters do a

the kitchen damage. A pamplet
distributed by Housing informed
residents exactly what happened
Friday morning.
The pamplet assured students
that the wiring is being replaced
and will be away from the kitchen.
Repairs are going to take at least
three weeks. Housing hopes to ha ve
the kitchen operable as soon as
possible.
"We don't know if the
kitchen was actually there when
we put in the system (alarms),
but we're looking into that
Amaro said.
"Fires don't happen very
often in residence halls, which is
very good beca use when they do
happen they can be very destruc-
tive
Knox said the fire could
have been very serious had it not
been found in time. He says that
students should realize people
usually collapse from smoke in-
halation before actually getting
burned.
The resident who started
the fire probably will not be
charged by police. However, the
case has been turned over to Resi-
dence Life, Knox said.
College Hill gets illuminated
By Maureen Rich
News Editor
Exotic in form, tremendous
in size, and more logical than any
other dining facility on campus,
Todd Dining Hall hopes to open its
doors immediately following
Spring Break.
Months of sculpting brick,
steel, copper, stucco and glass have
molded a building fancier and much
moreaccessible than your local res-
taurant. For Frank Salamon, direc-
tor of Dining Services, this is only
the beginning.
"What we're trying to do is
create a neighborhood Salamon
said. "We look at College Hill as a
neighborhood, and eventually we
want to expand into a community
for the students
The dining hall has been
completely financed through
food-service receipts, Salamon
said. "We are completely self-sup-
ported he explained. "We pay
our own way for everything
Todd Dining Hall is the tip of
the iceberg for Salamon, who
dreams of more green grass and
less gray pavement on College Hill.
For now, however, he is content to
bask in the pride of being a part of
such a successful project.
The floor plan for Todd is
extravagantin itsaccommodations
� no stone was left unturned, no
aspect of its structure w i thou t sepa-
rate consideration.
It begins with the exterior
landscaping. Students will not think
of Todd as just a place to eat, and
this isexactly whatSalamon wants.
"We've created a patio area
for people tocome and congregate,
sit on the seat walls, meet their
friends � basically get away from
the residence halls Salamon said.
The front of Todd houses a
roofed patio complete with drink-

ing fountains and various avail-
able seating, but students will have
other options beyond sitting. Stu-
dents who were outraged to find
the tennis courts, basketball courts
and volleyball courts ravaged by
construction can relax.

sun-bathing, the Frisbees, the pas-
sive recreation he said. "There

Students selected for mentor program
By Stephanie Lassiter
Staff Writer
How would it feel to have a
faculty member you could call for
personal advice, or to go to lunch
wit, or even to send a Christmas
card to?
Twenty-two academically
outstanding freshmen have been
selected to take part in a mentor
program sponsored by Phi Kappa
Phi honor society.
The program's point was to
provide "someone to whom a stu-
dent can talk and from time to
time share concerns and seek
advice'said the president of the
ECU Phi Kappa Phi and vice chan-
cellor for Institutional Advance-
ment, James Lanier.
The students were selected
based on their high school aca-
demic achievement. All of the
students are recipients of major
scholarships.
"The original intention was
to get in touch with those stu-
dents who would eventually be
eligible e membership said
IVggy Wood, departmental chair
in the school of Allied 1 lealth Sci-
ences.
"The program is a good
idea because manv times it is
difficult to get personal atten-
tion from a faculty advisor
Cindy Szymanski, the student
selected to be mentored by
Wood, said.
Szymanski is planning to
major in Occupational Therapy
and would like to eventually
become a member of Phi Kappa
Phi.
Wood added that the pro-

Alcohol-free dorm area established
Perm State established a drug- and alcohol-free dorm area
for students who don't want to be in an environment where
drugs and alcohol are prevalent, officials said. The third and
fourth floors of a dorm are part of LIFE House, or Living In a
Free Environment. Residents who live on these floors sign a
contract not to use drugs, alcohol or other controlled substances.
"One of the reasons the university created LIFE House is to
serve as an alternative to living with students who use alcohol
� neighbors whose behiivior translates into all kinds of disci-
plinary problems said Bryan Moody, assistant coordinator for
residence life. Some students who live in the drug-free zone
have parents who are addicted to alcohol or drugs, or they are
recovering alcoholics or drug addicts themselves, officials said.
Want to find out right now?
Remember the wait between applying for school and the
day the letter finally arrived? Fun, right? If you were interested
in applying to Bard College, you would have had the opportu-
nity to find out right away if you were accepted or not. Bard,
throughout the month of January, is taking its Immediate Deci-
sion Plan on the road to Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco,
Seattle, Boston and Washington, D.C. Prospective students will
attend an interdisciplinary seminar taught by a Bard faculty
member, and afterwards will be interviewed by Bard admission
counselors who have reviewed the previously received applica-
tion materials. Applicants are then given a decision on the spot.
UC gets Native American department
The University of California-Davis has established a Na-
tive American Studies Department, the first of its kind in Cali-
fornia and one of only a few at universities nationwide. The
department was formed from an existing Native American
Studies program. UC-Davis Provost Larry Vanderhoef cited the
academic strength of the 20-year-old program, its international
reputation, student interest and geographical location as rea-
sons for expanding the program to a full-fledged department
earlier this fall.

dents can expect the same prices at
Todd that they find currently at
Jones. However there will be no-
ticeably drastic improvements in
both the menu and the atmosphere.
The main serving area itself is
modern, attractive and traffic-ac-
cessible. No more standing in one
long, slow-moving line, craning
ahead to try and guess the day's
menu � this room has traveling
options. Todd also sports its own
separateexit. Students will no longer
have to pass trays of picked-over,
half-finished scraps in order to en-
ter the dining area.
After picking up trays, silver-
ware and napkins, the hungry stu-
dents then have several choices de-
pending upon their taste prefer-
ences. Salamon's "modified food
court" literally has something for
everyone. Demonstration cooking
is a popular feature at Todd, allow-
ing students to see what they are
getting and how it is being cooked.

own pasta maker and various as-
sorted luxuries most commonly

Todd Dining Hall will service every
other dining facility on campus with
its desserts and baked goods, so not
everyone will have to trek to the
Hill to taste something sweet.
The building itself is enough
towarrantanextra five-minute hike,
however. Todd's Pavilion theme
seems almost too elegant for a col-
lege dining experience. The highest
pointstretchesto46 feet of glass and
wooden beams, and at night will
light up the Hill.
A deep teal washes what wall
space there is, for seemingly hun-
dreds of windows offer a view of
the woods and College Hill, and an
atmosphere startlingly diverse from
the dreary shadows of Jones or the
Galley. Carpet will cover all seating
areas, and students will have a range
of seats from which to choose as
they follow a tiled pathway.
Booths are sprayed along one
wall, offering a more secluded din-
ing area, and both large and small
tables will be available. There are
four dining areas all together, pro-
viding different views and differ-
ent environments for everyone.

"I don't hold anything

Teamwork seems to be a big
part of the housekeeeping staff.
Suggs works closely with other
housekeepers in Cotten to keep
the hall tidy for all occasions.
Housekeepers dust the moldings
in the hallway, empty trash and
pencil sharpeners, clean machines,
furniture and bathrooms, and
vacuum all over.
Not all of the housekeeping
staff work in just one location.
Willie Evans is responsible for
stocking the dorms and classroom
buildings with necessary materi-
als to ensure health and safety for
students. His new uniform hasn't
arrived, but should be here within
the next week, officials said.
John Harrel works in the
Nursing building. He describes
his job as doing the basics, which
include picking up trash and vacu-
uming.
"I'm glad we got uniforms,
because if you work in your regu-
lar clothes, sometimes you mess
them up Harrel said.

uniforms yet, take a look. It might

keeper on the back and let them

Todd Dining Hall is slated
to open March 13, 1994, the last
day of Spring Break. Salamon
hopes to be open for dinner, and
with a preview of Todd's extrava-
gances, many students are likely
to eagerly anticipate the grand
opening.

QUAKE
prised by the damage to the free-
ways because freeway construc-
tion standards were improved �
and freeways upgraded � after
the 1971 quake.
The quake was felt for hun-
dreds of miles, at least as far away
as San Diego, 125 miles to the
south, and Las Vegas, 275 miles
to the east.
The quake knocked out
power in downtown Los Angeles
and across much of the metro-
politan area. Because of the inter-
dependence of Western power
grids, brief power outages caused
by the quake were reported as far
north as Portland, Ore and Se-
attle.
Riordansaid there had been
"major damage" from the quake,
but insisted that the city had the
situation under control.
Referring to the damaged
section of the Santa Monica Free-
way, which ferries hundreds of
thousands of commuters between
the west side and downtown each
day, Riordan said: "That freeway
will be closed for quite a while
The freeway overpass at
Fairfax Avenue buckled like a
wave, dropping to about six feet
above street level.
But the scene at the Mlapse
of Interstates 5 and 14 � a four-
level interchange � was far more
horrific, with one stretch of road
jutting into space, the remainder
lying on the highway below it.
The collapse was not far
from the scene of a similar disas-
ter in 1971.
In addition, a freeway
bridge was reported damaged on
state Route 118, the Simi Valley
Freeway.
Besides the crushed motor-
ist, the death toll included four
people who died of quake-related
heart attacks, two each at Cedars
Sinai Medical Center in Los An-
geles and Holy Cross Medical
Center in Sylmar.
Five people died in an apart-

ment building collapse in
Northridge, the Fire Department
said.
"We've got a three-story
apartment that's now a two-story.
We've got people we're pull-
ing out all the time said fire
Capt. Steve Bascom.
The building, a half-block
from California State University,
Northridge, housed mostly col-
lege students. An identical build-
ing next to it buckled, but did not
collapse.
Hundreds of people
watched firefighters search the
rubble.
Richard Andrews, the state
emergency services director,
noted that the early hour and the
Martin Luther King holiday re-
duced the number of people ex-
posed to injury.
At the Sylmar hospital,
which was swamped by more
than 250 new patients, disaster
coordinator Mark Wallerstein
told those without serious injury
to go elsewhere.
"We have no power, no
laboratory, no X-rays, no phar-
macy and almost no food
Wallerstein told them. He later
said the hospital was operating
on emergency power.
In Los Angeles, CedarsSinai
was receiving "a tidal wave of
walking wounded hospital
spokesman Ron Wise said.
Sylmar, the epicenter of a
devastating earthquake in 1971,
was blanketed by a black haze of
smoke. From the air, at least 30 to
40 homes could be seen burning.
Nearby in Granada Hills,
water from broken water mains
raged through the streets. Fire-
balls from ruptured gas mains
exploded in the midst of the
floods.
Residents formed lines, fill-
ing buckets with water from a
swimming pool and tossing the
water onto their homes, hoping
to prevent the spread of fire.

gram is a great opportunity to
make academically-gifted stu-
dents aware of the organization
and its importance. Additionally,
according to Wood, it gives the
faculty some insight into the stu-
dents.
Dr. David Sanders, director
of the honors program, said he
had taken his protegee, Kathryn
Smith, out to lunch and also ac-
companied her to a reception
hosted by Chancellor and Mrs.
Eakin.
"Thisthe program is an at-
tempt to bridge the gap between
the faculty who are members of

members Sanders said.
"Dr. Sanders is very support-
ive and helpful with my career at
East Carolina Smith said.
Smith plans to double major
in Mathematics and English.
Although most of the honor
society consists of students, there
are 50 faculty and staff members

The following are holding
chapter offices: Lanier, president;
Dr. Douglas McMillan, professor
of English, vice president; Dr.

Weather: isn't it the least of your worrrles?

Throughout time, it must be said that people
have been known to react to weather in very
strange ways.
In some instances, it is handled with kid
gloves (for any of you eco-waifs who remember
that phrase). These are the people that sprint to
Kroger in an effort to stock up for the quarter-inch
of snow that Greenville received over the week-
end. (By the way, on a trip to Kroger postsnow-
storm the mostvisiblydepleated staple food was
Hter-sizedbottiesofsoda.Greenvilleresidentssiire
do know their needs)
On the other hand, there are those with total
disregard for the elements. These are the crazy-
heads you saw building snowpersons in their
shorts and airing out their apartments with fresh
(frigid) air while scarfing down ice cream.
But that's okay. Everyone has a right to treat
weather in their own way. Just don't let it get out of
hand. Don't let it take over your life, put your life
on hold or�for Pete's sake!�cause you to hide
under the covers whimpering for warmer days.
That's just a bit pathetic.
In wake of the recent California earthquake,
it is necessary to tip our hats to Mother Nature for
soskillfully remindingus how powerful shereally
is. In a way, she's testing our extremes. Case in
point Hopefully those (all 20 of you�hey, we're
averaging here �) planning a trip to California
will prevail and bravely spread your wings for the
GoldenState anyway. Yes, earthquakes are inher-
ent to that section of the VS but its no reason to
scrap a trip based on fear. It's amazing just how
many people will give up in the tug-of-war that
presents itself to us in the form of weather.
Imagine what our ancestors put up with in a
less technologically advanced world devoid of elec-
tricity and hot water, upgraded structure supports
andallof thecomfortsof the twentieth century. Most
of us probably couldn'thave lasted a day, and boy, is
that sad.
I guess what started this line of thinking, and
thetruepointof thiseditorial, isduetoanarticlelread
about Bosnia. Now, many of you are probably won-
dering how I could possibly join two seemingly
uncomparable topics together, let alone find simi-
larities with them. Well, lef s just see if it's possible.
The story was about Amela Muratovic, a
Sarajevo mother and her struggle to keep her family
alive. Bosnia is full of horrors many middle class
Americans find unimaginable, but that are com-
monplacemwar-tomBosrua-Herzegovina.Thetwist
in this story was that it wasn't about the daily,
country-wide destruction, the governmental feet-
dragging, the UN blockades or the peace negotia-
tions. It was simply about a mother and her children
and their daily existence.
It told of food shortages, electricity working
every four days, doing laundry in ice-cold water
while snipers shot at Amela and about the sub-zero
temperatures the children faced every morning.
These are the real struggles in the world today,
when children have to not only exist in unlivable
conditions in Slavic winters, but must grow up in a
battle zone.
Consider this the next time someone (or your-
self) complains about theweather. It could be worse
� you could be living on a fault line-

New Year's resolutions traditionally silly
By Brian Hall
King's dream of equality attainable lawfully
This past Saturday in San
Francisco, Lawrence Taylor
played his last game in the NFL.
His retirement marks the end
of an era as surely as Michael
Jordan's did. Both came out of
North Carolina and forever
changed their HMHBHMH
respective
sports. Both are
heroes to mil-
lions.
You
surely know all
this; but I have
two reasons for
stating the ob-
vious.
One is to mmmm
put in writing for Mr. Rivers,
that despite all our arguments
about LT, he was undeniably
the greatest linebacker ever.
The other, on this day after Mar-
tin Luther King Day, is to cel-
ebrate, at least in these two
cases, the fulfillment of Dr.
King's dream; that a day would
come when men would be
judged by the content of their
character and not by the color
of their skin.
For that is the greatest of
Dr. King's legacies. While I
share his dream of a color-blind
society, there are other legacies
of the modern civil rights move-
ment which I feel have unin-
tentionally hurt black-white re-
lations.
Let me first state the he-
retical notion that the greatest
breakthrough in civil rights was
won, not by Dr. King and his
associates, but by Abraham Lin-
coln, and the thousands of men
of both races who fought in the
Civil War, who insisted on the
metaphysical fact of equality of
all men.
The next most important
breakthrough in interracial re-
lations is happening now, as
whites seek out blacks on the
basis of their individual achieve-
ments.
There are many such cases,
including Jordan and Taylor, as
well as people like Colin Powell.
Unfortunately, this takes time;
� whether
If we really want to
honor Dr. King's
memory and the things
that he worked for we
will strive everyday to
see each other as
individuals
the civil
rights
movement
hastened
the process
is ques-
tionable.
What
the move-
ment in the
wmammmmmmm os did
promote was unreasonable goals.
Slogans like "Freedom Now in-
evitably caused frustration when
freedom was not instantaneously
forthcoming.
This frustration has repeat-
edly shown itself since, as blacks,
aggravated by the continuing
dissonance between rhetoric and
reality, have lashed out (e.g. the
Los Angeles Riots). Such frustra-
tion is as understandable as it
was predictable. Regrettably, ac-
tions motivated by this frustra-
tion only widen the chasm be-
tween the races.
Another legacy of Dr. King
which disturbs me is his advo-
cacy and participation in law-
breaking, something for which
we should be reluctant to honor
anyone. That the laws which he
broke were wrong and restricted
personal freedom cannot be de-
nied.
Our society is based on
laws. We cannot maintain an or-
derly society if we encourage citi-
zens to break those laws with
which they disagree. There are
many laws now on the books
which I personally feel restrict
individual freedom.
However, I should not be
either allowed or encouraged to
break these laws. While I am not
suggesting that the idea of civil
disobedience is solely respon-
sible for our current rampant
crime rate, it surely played a part
in the declining respect for the
law now evident in our society.
If at some point in a mostly
free society, an individual citi-
zen decides that he can no longer
accept current conditions, he has
several options: leave, work
within the legal system for re-
form, or disobey the laws. Soci-
ety should promote the first two.
I support the civil rights
movement in their efforts to
change laws which are imping-
ing on personal liberty. The third
method leads to revolution and
should be suppressed. I am as-
suming that the laws we are dis-
cussing do not attempt to regu-
late matters of conscience, such
as religion. Any such laws vio-
late the social contract between
the state and the citizens.
Lastly, other such results of
the civil rights movement such
as affirmative action and forced
desegregation of schools have
had the adverse effect of antago-
nizing the white majority and
sapping the goodwill most
whites have concerning racial
matters.
For, despite all the talk of
how our society is racist and op-
pressive, it has been my experi-
ence that most whites want peace
and equality between the races.
If we really want to honor
Dr. King's memory and the
things that he worked for, in-
stead of relying on symbols like
a national holiday or candlelight
marches, we will strive every-
day to see each other as indi-
viduals, and to communicate
honestly with each other.
Only by doing so will all
our dreams of equality come true.
This year I made three New
Year's resolutions. I decided I
would cut out the fast food, really
work out to really lose those extra
10 pounds, and save $100 a month
by slashing my grocery bill, the
only flexible expense in my bud-
get. Now, not quite two weeks
after these testaments, I sit at
McDonald's watching my first
resolution disappear into the fat
of a Qua rter-Pounder w i th cheese
Extra Value Meal. To wash down
all the sodium and cholesterol, I
maintain some justification, how-
ever, by making my beverage of
choice Diet Coke.
As I begin to further ratio-
nalize my decision to munch down
an order of large fries, I realize
how silly, inconsistent and incom-
patible my resolutions are. How
can I possibly stick to resolution
no. 1 when I know that in order to
maintain resolution no. 2, the
cheap fare of fast food is, at times,
the only way to lower a $100 a
month grocery bill? Furthermore,
between mouthfuls of prefabri-
cated lard and grease, mumbling
the words, "I'll start resolutionno.
3 tomorrow I contemplate how
resolution no. 3 can survive at all
if resolution no. 1 is a condition to
resolution no. 2!
As I down the last of my 620-
calorie burger, 1 attempt another
avenue of thought. If 1 want to
save $100 a month by slicing my
grocery bill, I must eat more
cheaply, and as any full-time stu-
dent knows, that means giving in
the "having it your way, right
away" nourishment. Yet if I'm se-
rious about losing those extra
pounds, perhaps I should consider
revising some other component of
my budget so I can spend an extra
$7 on a can of Slimfast and an extra
$15 on the supplement pills from
GNC that bum away fat as I sleep.
Do you see the evil silliness of this
cyclical pattern? Resolution no. 1
is clearly shot, no. 2 is persevering
for the time being, and no. 3 is
somewhere in the middle with a
high risk of improbability.
Astonishingly enough, I
know that I am doing better than
most other people trying to ad-
here to their ambiguous resolu-
tions. For starters, at least I re-
member mine. Statistics reveal that
50 percent of those who resolve
such-and-such at the magical
stroke of midnight on New Year's
Eve don't even remember the next
day what they adamantly declared
the night before. Furthermore, two
out of three revolutionists, (oops,
I mean "resolutionists"), bail out
after two weeks. And who can
blame them? The three most popu-
lar resolutions are to quit smok-
ing, to lose weight and to cut back
on the alcohol. Oh, surprise, sur-
prise. From Thanksgiving through
New Year's day, we gorge our
growing guts on festive feasts and
holiday bowl-game goodies. And
what is New Year's Eve if you
don't toss down a few too many
while toking on your favorite
brand of smokes to intensify the
celebration? Is it no wonder, as we
wake up New Year's morning
reeking of cigarette smoke, nurs-
ing a hangover and unable to slide
into anything except an old, ripped
up pair of sweats, that we avow
earnestly to any or all of these top
three resolutions? Hardly.
Yet, we still lack explanation
to the demise of our resolutions,
so let us consider the temptations.
If we start with day one, we are
already defeated. I know of very
few people who do not go to some
college bowl-game party and ulti-
mately binge on the elaborate buf-
fet and sip on at least one beer.
But, if the hangover from the pre-
vious evening is so severe that
your absence from another party
is inevitable, you will eventually
drag yourself out of the bathroom
for the eternal 5-minute drive to
Burger King, because everyone
knows the best cure for this spe-
cific condition is a big, hot, greasy
Whopper with all the trimmings.
And nothing cuts through that 12-
hour cotton mouth like an ice-cold,
6 pack of regular Coke. Conse-
quently, quirting smoking has be-
come the one remaining resolu-
tion that seems to endure at least
through the first day of the New
Year. Alas, time goes by, and as
we find ourselves back to work
and back to school, we eventu-
ally lose sight of this goal as we
light up in an attempt to "cope"
with the demands of our jobs
and the eer-increasing pressures
from our professors. Hence, top
resolution no. 3 is now also up in
smoke.
Personally, I find resolu-
tions to be for the weak and de-
mur. I mean, really! Aren't these
personal promises for the better-
ment of our bodies something to
be pursued throughout the en-
tire course of a year? Or even
more so, throughout our lives? If
you are one that attests to these
stipulations but once a year, per-
haps a nice, thick, self-help guide
is in dire need.
Admittedly, resolutions do
provide an avenue for regroup-
ing and refocusing. And perhaps
you are just as weak and demur
if your don't resolve to some-
thing! When talking with friends
after New Year's, everybody
asks, "Hey, what resolutions did
you make?" 1 think we all can
agree to the impression of noth-
ingness from the oh-so-perfect
person who replies, "Oh, noth-
ing To this, I smugly turn away,
roll my eyes and think, "Gee,
what an unblemished life you
lead. Don't you at least want to
try walking on water?"
Silly as they may forever
remain, resolutions are, in fact, a
tradition. However, perhaps it is
not so important what we re-
solve to as it is that we at least try
something. My own resolutions
already on shaky ground, I am
resolving now, for next year, to
think of some resolutions that
are consistent, compatible, tradi-
tional, yet not so silly. I suppose
for the time being, 1 will blend
into the mix of the weak and
demur since I have no idea what
these resolutions may be; but,
hey, I've got the whole year to
resolve it.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
"One for all and all for one that is the core
of any team, except for the ECU football team of
course. On January 11 and once before the holi-
days, there were two very harsh editorials attack-
ing coach Logan. Although the critics were well
within their right, the football team seems to be
missing the point. When a member of your team
gets attacked, especially the head coach, you stand
up and defend him. You defend your team re-
gardless of what you might think behind closed
doors.
It is disgusting that not one player has writ-
ten an editorial defending their coach. That does
prove their is something wrong with the team,
but is it Coach Logan? Or is it the players who
were obviously well prepared for Syracuse (by
their coach) and rolled over and played dead in
the second half. The players who hung their
heads when our talented freshman quarterback
broke his leg. The players who were 2-9 this
season and hung their head when they get be-
hind in a game yet walk across campus as if they
just won the Orange Bowl.
Unit cohesion is created by the leader, but
it can only be accomplished if the members have
a little pride and dignity. There is a book about
Vince Lombardi in the library, it wouldn't hurt
the ECU team to go and read the section on unit
cohesion. Always defend your team members,
that includes the coach.

All eyes on 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas'
Join in the clean fun with Miss Mona on her ranch at Wright
Auditorium this Sunday evening

Vie Best Little Wlwrehouse In Texas
By Cindy Hawkins
Staff Writer
When asked to describe a
typical workday at her ranch,
Miss Mona, amid a chorus of
giggles, says, quite frankly, "We
do a mass volume, repeat busi-
ness like Coca-Cola. It's a nice,
quiet group; no whips, no chewin'
gum, and there are 20 fans to cool
the fellas down
One needs a shrewd business
philosophy like that if one is run-
ning what has been called The
Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
Miss Mona also knows ECU is
not in Texas, which is why all her
girls, cast and crew, have decided
to come to Greenville and off r
the East Carolina community a
new concept of "business How-
ever, you won't be able to learn
about this new concept in eco-
nomic books and classes. The Best
Little Whorehouse in Texas is a the-
ater production, and it will be
performed in Wright Auditorium
on Jan. 23 at 8:00 p.m.
Undoubtedly, The Best Little
Whorehouse in Texas is sure to raise
some eyebrows�and rightly so.
This brazenly-titled Broadway
production raised some very criti-
cal eyebrows and won two Tony
awards in the process. Since its
off-Broadway opening in 1978,
the play has won several other
awards, toured internationally,
been reviewed by the likes of Time
magazine and been made into a
movie starring the sweetest of
sweethearts, Dolly Parton.
Best Little Whorehouse was in-
spired by a true incident in which
an infamous Texas brothel, that
had been in business since 1844
was officially shut down in 1973.
During the Depression, the
brothel was said to have ac-
cepted chickens for payment for
its services and was nicknamed
"The Chicken Ranch Don't be
fooled, however. While the
play's source of inspiration
might be unorthodox, the pro-
duction itself is a light-hearted
and entertaining musical com-
edy that is fit for any audience.
The theater version of the
Chicken Ranch isn't just any
house of ill-repute. It is man-
aged tighter than a boarding
school and features working
girls with hearts of gold who
are more interested in singing
and dancing than anything else.
All the girls revolve around a
compassionate (and shrewd)
madam named Miss Mona

Upper Crust readings presented Tuesday
Shonbrun and Makuck bring ECU faculty skill

By Daniel Willis
Staff Writer
The Upper Crust has been pre-
senting a reading series for the last
year and a half. This Wednesday
Peter Makuck and Adam
Schonbrun from the ECU English
Department are reading at 8:00
p.m.
Makuck did his undergradu-
ate work at St. Francis, and re-
ceived his Ph.D. from Kent State.
"My wife and I were on the field
when the National Guard opened
fire he said. "It was one of the
scariest things I've ever witnessed.
Everybody heard gunshots and
presumed they were blanks. But
when the smoke cleared some
people weren't getting up
Schonbrun got his MFA from
Perm State, and his BA from Haifu
in Israel. "I worked in the cotton
fields on a Kibbutz in Galilee dur-
ing the 1992 Lebanon warhesaid.
Makuck noted that he plans to
speak about nature in some shape
or form. "I really enjoy the out-
doors Makuck said. "That's one
thing I really like about the spring
semester. It starts out real cold, and
warms up toward the end of the
semester. It really is nice
Schonbrun said he'll read some
of his newer poems from his most
recent poetry book. He also said
that he would like to perform a
Hebrew Chant. Schonbrun said, "I
would like to establish some sort of
relationship between my religion
and my poetry
Between sets, a musical guest
will be featured. ECU student Ash
Lee Gahagan will be playing the
cello. "I plan on playing mostly

; - It seems that North Carolina
� Tins produced yet another addi-
tion to the thriving college pop
scene. Based in Raleigh, Dolittle
is the newest band around in the
tradition of Dillon Fence and The
Connells. They have just released
their latest album, Waterfront,
which the band helped produce.
Dolittle's sound is a marriage
of quirky-melodic, pseudo-funk
with some nifty lyrics about girls
named Scarlette, sailors and free-
loading friends. Most of this al-
bum is some type of bouncy "pro-
gressive"�actually non-aggres-
sive progressive�with an acous-
tic track and a ballad thrown in
for good measure. They keep the
complicated stuff to a minimum,
and their tone is far from harsh.
This is a band for the Xer with an
aversion to feedback and the
darker side of the college sound.
Their dreamy, upbeat sound is

Remember how DC Comics put

were going to kill Superman? And
they did but he came back to life

three new comic series because of it?
Well, that's fairly bogus. I'm here to
tell you, we get no bogusness wi th the
Charlie Hunter Trio. These guys de-
liver pure and honest jazz and they

Occasionally a movie-going ex-
perience will combine with thatwhich
transpires on the silver screen to cre-
ate a truly memorable event that will
live forever in the memory. Any
thoughts of that particular film will
always evoke the circumstances in
which it was originally seen.
I will always remember the frigid,
snowy air circling around me as I left
the theater scared but dazzled after
witnessingSieHccofieLjwite.Ifondly
recall Children of a Lesser God, because
it was my first date with my wife.
And now I will cherish Grumpy Old
Men because I saw it on Christmas
Day with eight members of my fam-
ily.
Not only was the company de-
lightful but the film exceeded all ex-
pectations. Once again, the teaming
of JackLemmonand Walter Ma tthau
once again has created movie magic.
GrumpyOldMm isthetaleoftwo
neighbors who have been fighting so
long that the arguments and insults
have become part of their daily rou-
tine. John Gustafson (I.emmon) and
Max Goldman (Matthau) live next
doortoeachotherinWabasha,Minn.
,anice fishing community where one
of the most exciting events is the lot-
tery drawing, which Max interrupts
by switching John's channels.
With each new prank, the jokes
that these two septuagenarians play-
on each other grow funnier. John ices
Max's roof so that snow will slide off
when the door is shu t. Then John gets
back at Max for the lottery trick by
putting a fish in the back of Max'scar.
When a feisty widow moves in
next door to John and Max, the insults
and barbs becomeeven more heated.
Both men find Ariel (bewitchingly
played by Ann-Margret) attractive,
but, for a while, neither does aiiy-
thingabou t it. Almostsimultaneously
they both begin to woo her with al-
most disastrous results.
The plot in Grumpy Old Men
serves only as a means of giving the
two veteran actors a framework in
which to perform. Both Lemmonand
Mathau infuse much of their own
personalities into their roles. The di-
rector, Donald Petrie, wisely allows
both stars the latitude necessary for
them to broadly act out their respec-
tive parts.
Lemmon has been in top form
for the last three decades and he con-
tinues to remain there in this film.
Once again, as he did so well in
GlengaryGlmn Ross,hedemonstrates
his acting prowess.
Walter Matthau has been less
reliable as an actor but lately seems to
be making up for it. He stole Dennis
the Menace last year as a feisty Mr.
Wilson, and he more than ably
matchesLemmon's talents in Gnmn
Old Men. Matthau's broad grin and
sagging cheeks actually make him
funnierthan Lemmon inGnHrnOW
Men.
Even mesmaller roles inGrHwin
Old Men provide unexpected plea-
sure. Buck Henry fumbles about as a
government man searching for John
throughout most of the first part of
the film. And Daryl Hannah, as John's
daughter, and Kevin Plooack, as
Max's son, have a few nicely under-
played scenes that will bring a smile
to almost any face.

Travelling
abroad for
Spring Break?
Beware.
(AP)-Americans usually
travel abroad without incident,
but when difficult situations arise,
consular officers are mandated to
help resolve them � within lim-
its.
They will replace a lost or
stolen passport once you have pro-
vided a police report and proof of
citizenship. In some countries,
consular officers will escort you to
the police station to make official
reports or at least point the way
and describe procedure. A photo
copy of your passport's title page
is sufficient proof of citizenship.
Carry it separately for safekeep-
ing.
If your money is stolen, don't
expect a loan from the consulate
till. Rather, an officer will put you
in touch with local groups who
assist stranded travelers or help
you contact relatives or friends
who can send funds via the con-
sulate.
If you have no other way
home, consular officers will buy
you an airline ticket in exchange
for a promissory note. But you
must return home directly, and
your passport will be restricted
until the note is fully paid.
If a friend or relative fails to
call or arrive home on schedule,
you should call the State
Department's Citizen's Emer-
gency Center in Washington �

accounted for. But if the person is

periodically for developments.
If it becomes necessary to evacu-

authorities they might be able to
intercede on your behalf � de-

country. For example, if you're
wrongfully jailed during a police
sweep, consular officers usually
can establish vour identity as a
tourist and, once released, vouch
for your conduct for the remain-

to be released from jail or placed
in the custody of U.S. authorities.
In rare cases, in a country
that has strained relations with
the United States, an American

limit.
You can help by cooperating
with consular officers � and urg-
ing relatives and friends at home
to call public attention to your
situation to pressure the State
Department to make your release

On Saturday, Old Dominion
defeated ECU, 79-62. The first half
was evenly matched with the Pi-
rates going to a zone defense to
counter the inside play of Odell
Hodge. The 6-9,260-pound center
dominated inside, shooting 6-of-
10 in the first half for 12 points.
The Monarchs were able to
build an 11-point lead, 32-21, with
7:15 remaining when the Pirates
made the defensive switch and
went on a run that eventually tied
the game at 32. ECU went to the
locker room with the momentum
and a 40-39 lead.
"ECU made what I thought
was a nice move by going to zone
said ODU coach Oliver Pumell.
"We took i couple of bad shots
and tightened up a little bit not
concentrating on the defensive end
giving up rebounds. As a result,
we squandered an 11 -point lead "
The second half saw the Mon-
archs spread the Pirate zone out
with four good shooters all con-
necting from long range. The knife
in the back came with ODU lead-
ing 54-49 with 12:57 remaining
when Petey Sessons hit a 3-pointer
and was fouled.
"They went to a small lineup
and spread us out a lot ECU
head coach Eddie Payne said.
"The big one was the four-point
play by Sessons after we had an
offensive foul, really that whole
10 seconds hurt. Give them credit
for making the shots
"I think when they made their
run, we just didn't respond to it
ECU senior guard Lester Lyons
said. "We were getting good
shots, but they just weren't going
down for us. Then, they were
hitting everything they threw up
For the game, ECU shot 22-62
for 35 percent from the floor and
5-21 from 3-point range for a poor
24 percent. Meanwhile, the Mon-
archs made 10 of 24 three-point
attempts, for 42 percent, and shot
28-64 overall from the floor, for 43
percent.
Even with the loss, the Pirates
remain a threat to capture the
league title and look to a
successfull year.
"The game had a different feel
for us as opposed to other tough
games we've had on the road be-
fore Payne said. "We played
and competed in the game like
we could win. We won't be - � i

The Monarchs were tabbed
No. 1 in the CAA preseason
coaches poll and are currently
in second place behind James
Madison.
"There's no question (ECU
is) one of the better teams in the

Purnellsaid. "I'm sure they're a
much tougher team (in Green-
ville) and we feel fortunate and
good about the win we got to-
day
The Pirates came into the
game boasting a league best 9-3
record, including three straight
wins and 2-0 in CAA play The
9-3 start marked the best
begining for the ECU since the
1957-58 season when Howard
Porter's squad opened 12-3.
The 2-0 start in league play
is the best since the 1981-82 sea-
son when coach Dave Odom's
team opened with wins over
George Mason and William &
Mary in what was then the old
East Coast Athletic Conference.

The Lady Pirate basketball
team did their best to hang with the
Patriots of George Mason Univer-
sity, but eventually fell to the more
experienced GMU squad, 61-49.
"My players gaveagreateffort

ompson said after the game. "The
defensive end of the game held up
all night, we just need to be a bit
smarter in choosing the shots that
we take
ECU was led by sophomore
forward Fruky Blackmon, who had
13 points and four rebounds.
Blackmon, who did not start be-
cause of a knee injury, came off the
bench to sub for fresh man Michaella
Wallerstom. Senior guard
I aShonda Baker also helped in the
losing effort, adding 13 points and
three steals.
The Patriots were led by sopho-
more guard Keri Chacoas, who hit
four 3-pointers on her way to a
game-high of 17 points. All-CAA
selection Nickie Hilton owned the
boards all night, pulling down 11
rebounds and scoring 13 points for
GMU. However, another all-CAA
selection, Marcell Harrison, was
contained fairly well by ECU, and
was held to just five points.
During the first half of play, the
Lady Pirates showed no sign of
backing down to the much older
and more experienced Mason
squad. East Carolina pressed off
and on throughout the first half,
keeping the Patriots from settling
into a set offensive scheme.
The Patriots got in foul trouble
early, sending the Lady Pirates to
the free throw line on nine occa-
sions, while GMU had just three
free throws. ECU held the lead
during the last few minutes before
half-time, but a Pirate turnover re-
sulted in a Mason basket just before
the buzzer, giving GMU a 30-29
lead at the half.
The second half, on the hand,
was a different story altogether. Call
it fatigue, call it lack of experience,
call it what you want to. Mason

Jayhawks snatch
this week's No. 1
(AP) � Kansas was back as
the No. 1 team in The Associated
Press college basketball poll yes-
terday, 364 days after last moving
into the top spot.
The wait just to rejoin the
rankings was years longer for
Maryland and decades longer for
Saint Louis.
The Jayhawks (16-1) received
29 first-place votes and 1,552
points from the national media
panel to edge UCLA (11-0), which
was first on 26 ballots and had
1,514 points. Kansas is the fourth
team to sit atop the rankings this
season, joining North Carolina,
Kentucky and Arkansas.
Kansas was third last week
and the opportunity to move up
came when North Carolina and
Duke, last week's Nos. 1 and 2,
lost on consecutive days. The
Jayhawks moved into the No. 1
last season on Jan. 18 and held the
spot for two weeks. Their first
game as the top-ranked last sea-
son was against Kansas State, their
opponent tonight.
UCLA, which moved u j from
fifth, was last ranked No. 2 in 1991-
92.
Arkansas (12-1) had three
first-place votes and moved up
one spot to third and was followed
by North Carolina (13-2), which
had one No. 1 vote, and Duke (11-
1), which was first on two ballots.
The Blue Devils had a chance to
take over as No. 1, but they lost to
Wake Forest the day after North
Carolinahadbeenbeatenby Geor-
gia Tech.
Massachusetts (13-1) had four
first-place votes and moved from
seventh to sixth and was followed
in the Top 10 by Kentucky, Indi-
ana, Arizona and Connecticut.

lowed by Purdue, Louisville, Wis-

Cincinnati and Minnesota. The last
five teams were California, Xavier,
Ohio, Saint Louis, West Virginia
and Maryland.
Saint Louis (14-0), the only
other major unbeaten besides
UCLA, is in the rankings for the
first time since the 1964-65 season
when the Billikens got as high as
fourth. Under first-year coach
Charlie Spoonhour, No. 23 Saint
Louis finally started receiving na-
tional attention with its last three
victories � at Arizona State, deci-
sively over Memphis State at
home, and at DePaul.
Maryland (10-3) was last
ranked in the first regular-season
poll in 1985-86. The 25th-ranked
Terrapins fell on some hard times
following the drug-induced death
of star Len Bias and an NCAA
probation that kept them out of
the NCAA tournament for three
seasons. Their losses this season
have been to Oklahoma, Massa-
chusetts and North Carolina and
they have registered impressive
road wins over Georgetown, Geor-
gia Tech and Wake Forest.
Boston College (11-4), which
was No. 20, was the highest-
ranked to fall out of the poll after
splitting two games this week, a
loss at Seton Hall and a win over
Miami.
Vanderbilt (8-5) was 24th, but
losses to Alabama and LSU
knocked the Commordores out of
the rankings.
Missouri (11-2) entered the
rankings for the first time this sea-
son last week, tied for 25th. A loss
to Notre Dame ended the run at
one week.
Connecticut, which jumped
from 14th to 10th,and UAB, which
moved from 22nd to 18th, made
the week's biggest jumps, while
Michigan, which lost to Indiana
on Sunday, had the biggest fall.

will compete was Feb. 21, the day of
the women's skating draw and two
days before competition begins.
Harding, of course, is the na-
tional champion. She's also involved
in one of the most bizarre cases in
sports history � the attack that
knocked rival Nancy Kerrigan out
of the U.S. Figure Skating Champi-
onships.
Handing's bodyguard and two
associates have been charged with
plotting the assault, and published
reports say the skater and her ex-
husband, Jeff Gillooly, are under in-
vestigation.
Through her lawyer on Sun-
day, Harding categorically denied
she was involved in the attack.
The U.S. Figure Skating Asso-
ciation has until Jan. 31 to submit its
Olympic roster, and it's reviewing
the Harding situation carefully be-
fore it does so. After that, it's in the
hands of USOC's Games Prepara-

HARDING
Continued from page 9
focused on procedures to follow in
case Harding's involvement in the
situation becomes sharper.
"We are not going to be stam-
peded George said. "We have a
game plan in place for what will
happen in the next few weeks
Officials said the L'SOC wascon-
cemed about protecting the rightsof
all athletes, as well as re-enforcing
the importance of sportsmanship
and fair plav.
Walker said the USOC might
have to act on Harding "without the
consideration of whether or not her
rights have been abridged
He backed away from that
stance Sunday, saying he was only
staring personal opinion, but also
acknowledging that such action
could lead to legal problems.
MONTANA
"We kept getting reminded by
our legal counsel, 'You are the Su-
preme Court Walker told report-
ers. "You never know what we have
to deal with
Asked if it would be best if
1 larding withdrew from the team,
Walker said: "I suppose that would
be the easiest possible out
But he noted that, based on state-
ments bv Hard ing's mother and oth-
ersclose to her, a resignation seemed
remote. So, Walker continued, the
USOC would base its decision on a
number of factors, and not just
whether the skater was arrested.
" 11 wi 11 be based onlaw enforce-
ment. It will be based on our rules
and regulations. And itwillbebased
on what is best for all our athletes
Walker said.
So Buddy Ryan, the Oilers defen-
sive coordinator said, "helooks like
the same guy to me
Not exactly. Montana was
wearing a different jersey, standing
at the helm of a different team and
throwing to different receivers. Still,
the result was the same. Ryan was
right about this much, though.
Everytime Montana got knocked
down, he got back up. A pop-up
doll.
"You look awful
Schottenheimer said as he watched
Montana limp toward a micro-
phone shortly after scrawling the
Chiefs' 28-20 AFC playoff win at
the bottom of his resume.
"It feels good to do this when a
lot of people didn't think you
could Montana said.
"I'm just glad he added a
moment later, "that I'm still in one
piece
Though he was sacked officially
just twice, Montana disappeared
under a swarm of blitzing defend-
ers a handful of times. They ham-
mered his already-tender ribs,
smashed an occasional helmet into
his hand, his elbow and his back.
They laid on his chest, rolled over
on his legs and perched there. And
from that perspective, through
much of the first half, they could see
the things that reallv hurt Montana
most: Passes falling harmlessly to
the ground because a.) the receiver
ran the wrong route, or worse; b.)
dropped the ball, or worse still; c).
the ball was poorly thrown.
Joe, though, is different from
everybody else. Joe does not get
down on himself. Joe does not scold
his lineman for missed assignments
or upbraid his receivers for drop-
ping balls. He understands he will
need all of them when the time
comes. That's why he's a legend in
the first place.
Montana completed just nine
of 20 passes in the first half for 87
yards, none for scores, and was still
certain there were weaknesses he
hadn't found. In the second half, he
proved himself right, completing
14 of 18 for another 212 yards and
three touchdowns.
At the last, Montana was asked
how he does it. Bless his repaired
little bursa sac, Montana thought
the questioner wanted technical in-
formation.
"It was just a matter of picking
up some of the blitzes on a different
look he said. "That gave us a little
more opportunity to get the blitz on

simplv abused the young Pirates
in the second half. GMU shot 44
percent from the floor, including
60 percent from behind the 3-point
line.
Meanwhile, ECU turned the
ball over 12 times and shot 7-for-27
from the field, a 26 percent pace.
"You could tell that fatigue
had started to set in during the
second half said ECU point
guard Danielle Charlesworth.
"We weren't playing as strong de-
fensively in the second half as we
did in the first half. The way we
plaved in the first half showed
that we are capable of playing with
some of the better teams in the
WARD
conference. Hopefully we can
learn from this game in helping us
down the road
Things turned around onSun-
day lor the Pirates when the beat
American 81-74 in Minges for the
team's second victory.
Freshman Tracey Kelley
scored a career-high 19 points and
pulled down 19 rebounds to pace
the Pirates.
The game was close through-
out and ECU's Danielle
Charlesworth hit a 3-pointer with
2:04 remaining to put ECU ahead
73-69 and the Bucs went six of
eight at the foul line during the
last minute to clinch the win.

The same question is put to
Oiler defensiveend William Fuller:
How does Montana do it?
"He Fuller said, "may be the
greatest
but he didn't lament the effort.
"I think I did what I needed to
do Ward said. "We played well.
In the second half, we played de-
fense, hit some shots. The big men
got better. Here and there, we were
just a couple of plays away from
tving the game today, and we were
down 20. We had a concerted effort
from everyone
There 'ssrill the football-basket-
ball tiling. He admits he'll try to
answer the question each time it's
brought up, but Ward savs every-
body will have to wait for him to
make up his mind, and it won't
happen before the season ends.
"You'll have to catch me after
basketball season, when I sit down
with my family, girlfriend and a
couple of friends and see what
choice is better for me he said.
