Increase in parking decal prices imminent
By Jason Williams
Assistant News Editor
Would you pay $130 for a
scrap of paper? How about $120
plus a fee increase of $64? Maybe
$230 total, but with a parking
deck thrown in for good mea-
sure? The Parking Committee
met on Thursday to determine
how much to charge for parking
stickers next semester. They
came to no conclusions, but
formed another committee to
talk about it.
The committee, made up
of university officials, staff and
faculty representatives, and
three student representatives,

Do you want to go to Aus-
tralia, Puerto Rico or France? Do
you think you could never afford
it? Think again. ECU's Foreign
exchange program can send you
to several locations throughout
the world, most of them costing
the same as ECU tuition.
Two ECU School of Busi-
ness graduate students, Sallie
Edwards and Craig Mayeux, are
in France this spring. They are the
first graduate students to partici-
pate in the ECU's new Interna-
tional Management Exchange
program. This program only ad-
mits graduate students. Under-
graduates also have opportuni-
ties to study in France through
other programs offered at ECU.
Edwards and Mayeux will
be attending business classes,
taught in English, at the Superior
Commerce School of Tours. The
school is one of the best known
business schools in France, said
Stephanie Evancho of ECU's In-
ternational Programs office.
"These two graduate stu-
dents are really fortunate to be
the first ones to go Evancho said.

great experience, especially with

also reviewed a document pre-
pared by Dr. Layton Getsinger,
associate vice chancellor for
Business Affairs. The East Caro-
lina Univeisity Parking System
Discussion Paper contains a brief
history of the parking problems
on campus and offers several
solutions to those problems.
"There has been a lot of
rhetoric in the last several
months with the parking spaces
being taken up by the new rec
center Why don't we have a
parking deck?" Getsinger said.
"What I did was to show how
we can have a parking deck with
two different scenarios
Getsinger calculated fig-
ures based on an 1,800 space
parking deck at a total cost of
$16.2 million. Scenario One re-
quires increasing the price of
parking decals by $50 annually
and increasing annual student
fees by $64. Scenario Two re-
quires increasing parking decals
by $160 annually with no in-
crease in student fees.
"This would have to be a
student, as well as a faculty and
staff, referendum; this is not
something we should dictate
because we are talking about a
significant amount of money
Getsinger said.
The last time the Parking
Committee raised fees was 1991.
Lancaster visits ECU
By Tammy Zion
Staff Writer
Martin Lancaster, a Demo-
cratic representative for eastern
North Carolina, spoke about health
care reform in Pitt County Memo-
rial Hospital's auditorium at 8 a.m.
last Friday morning.
Lancaster has visited ECU
four times within the past year and
offers a great deal of support to
ECU's College Democrats.
"It's a really rare opportu-
nity to sit down and get to ask your
congressmen 'What's the scoop out
there?' without hearing it from a
TV camera and sound bites said
Thomas Blue, president of ECU's
College Democrats.
Lancaster discussed in some
detail the five most popular health
care reform plans currently being
debated in Washington. Lancaster
said that 34 million Americans do
not have health insurance. He be-
lieves something will pass this year,
because of enormous pressure on
Congress. ECU students were
present in the audience and were
able to ask Lancaster which plan
would best benefit collegians.
"I think it is important as a
representative to get your input
Lancaster said. "This is a two-way
President Clinton's plan of-
fers universal health care cover-
age. All employers will be required
to insure employees but small
businesses with less than 75 em-
ployees will receive government
subsidies. Clinton also hopes to
offer employees a choice of health
insurance alliances, therefore low-
ering prices through competition.
Paul Wellstone from Min-
nesota has offered what Congress
refers to as the "Canadian plan
Lancaster explained that
Wellstone's plan would eliminate
all presentcoverageand cover citi-
zens under onecentral federal plan
paid for by payroll taxes.
Republican Senator John
Chafee, from Rhode Island, has
proposed mandatory health in-
surance for individuals. Lancaster
compared this to present day car
insurance. Under this plan em-
ployers could still offer health in-
surance as a fringe benefit but
would not be required to do so.
Bob Michel, Republican mi-
nority leader in the House, would
require all employers to cover, but

lifted by a giantC-5 cargo jet. Crews
at Pope Air Force Base loaded the
clinic into the jet Saturday night.
The mobile clinic includes
two examination rooms and a
waiting area, and has a generator
and its own water supply, said
Tom Arnold, acting director at
the VA center.

the VA center to make weekly

The committee decided at that
time the $20 increase (from $50
to $70) would be the last in-
crease for three years.
"I think we lived up to our
commitments. The question is
'Does that $70 per year fee pro-
vide us with the resources we
need to buy land, pave lots,
build a parking garage, do the
expansion that everyone wants,
or does that fee have to increase
and, if so, by how much? vice
chancellor for Business Affairs
Richard Brown asked.
Dean of Students Ronald
Speier turned the discussion
away from the needs of the uni-
versity and toward who is al-
lowed to purchase a parking de-
"I question why we sell so
many stickers for so few spots
Speier said. "I think we need to
address the issue of who can
park on the campus and where.
I think it is heresy to continue to
sell to whoever steps up and
wants one. We need to have that
discussion as to who can park
on campus.
"It's like ocean front prop-
erty�not everybody is going to
own it. It can't be like the mall,
where everybody wants to park
next to Belk's. We have to un-
derstand, we don't run a shop-

Getsinger said that be-
fore the university decides to
build a parking deck, the Park-
ing Committee must decide
what level of service to pro-
vide Currently, ECU has 34
parking spaces for every 100
persons on campus. Getsinger
gives 40 spaces per 100 per-
sons as average for the UNC
system and 55 spaces per 100
for the highest level of service
at UNC-Charlotte.

Imagine a perfect world.
Chances are, you dream of a peace-
ful environment � no wars, no
fighting, no hatred or prejudice,
just as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
envisioned. Last week, ECU stu-
dents voiced their hopes and
dreams for a better world.
"Would you like to join us in
making a wish for world peace?"
asked Harriett Bailey, a worker in
Chancellor Eakin's office, as stu-
dents passed by the Wish Board
for World Peace in the Brody
Building last week. Thursday
morning was the last day the
board visited ECU as part of the
week-long celebration of Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King, r. 's life and work.
The board was set up in three
locations over a three-day period.
On Tuesday, it was in the Wright
Place. Wednesday's Wish Board
was located in Minges, and the
Brody Building hosted the board
on Thursday.
Many people who saw the
Wish Board glanced at it curiously,
then stopped for a closer look
when asked to make a wish.
People making wishes received a
black and gray ribbon for their
Wishes ranged from per-
sonal wishes to hopes of peace for
the entire world. Here are some
anonymous examples of wishes

Train service helped ease
the crunch for commuters from
the Santa Clarita Valley, 25 miles
northwest of Los Angeles, but
there were no rails for west side
commuters to ride.
Scott Willens, 38, a garment
district worker, found his first ride
on the train an enjoyable one. But he
worried about not having his late
model Honda for emergencies.

It's snowing! Get naked and celebrate!
About 300 male and female students stripped naked and
sprinted through 25-degree weather at Princeton University in
New Jersey to celebrate the first snowfall of the winter. Runners
skidded around the icy grounds Jan. 4 while clothed spectators
cheered and the strains of "Chariots of Fire" wafted from a
dormitory window. Some joggers in the Nude Olympics took
precautions from the cold. They wore shoes, socks, hats, gloves
and one even donned a football helmet. Two students were taken
to a nearby hospital, one for treatment of extreme intoxication and
the other for lacerations of the back and legs. This is not the first
year some students were injured. In 1992, two young women
were found passed out naked in the cold after they drank too
much. That same year, about two dozen male students dashed
through a restaurant, frightening patrons and smashing a plate-
glass window.
Female student enters The Citadel
The gates of The Citadel finally opened last week to a
woman armed with several court orders and the will to be the first
woman cadet at the all-male military college. Eighteen-year-old
Shannon Faulkner was allowed to attend the classes she regis-
tered for months ago, but not before obtaining another court
decree. After a lower court ordered The Citadel to enroll her,
Chief Justice William Rehnquist granted a stay to keep Faulkner
out. Faulkner, who plans on majoring in education, will take only
day classes and will not live on campus.
Ithaca's recycling in the toilet
Ithaca College's waste paper recycling efforts are paying off
as much of the estimated 190,000 pounds of paper that is trucked
off campus each year will return as toilet paper. The college had
an agreement with Stevens & Thompson Paper Co. of Greenwich,
N.Y. to recycle its waste paper into toilet tissue. "This is a great
program because everyone winssaid Rick Couture, the college's
superintendent of custodial services. Stevens & Thompson will
make free pickups of waste paper, recycle the material into toilet
tissue and sell it back to the college at a favorable rate. College
officials estimate that by May the college will have saved nearly
$15,000. "We're happy with what we've been able to accomplish
Couture said. "We'vebeen sensitive to both the environment and
the bottom line.

Children become victims
Compiled by Jason Williams. Taken from CPS
and other campus newspapers.
RALEIGH (AP) � Police
know what to do with the adults
when they raid a house in search of
drug suspects � handcuff them
and haul them off to jail. But what
about the children?
Authorities are discovering
more frequently that when drug
dealers go to jail, somebody has to
take care of the youngsters.
Inmost instances, local offi-
cials aren't equipped to do it.
"It's terrible said Canessa
Stafford, a supervisor for Durham
County'sChild Protection Services.
"They're overloading our foster
homes. We have a limited number
of supplies. All of a sudden you
have to put down what you're do-
ing and use your resources to see
where these kids can go

ties, police estimate, children turn
up about 80 percent of the time in
drug raids. In Orange County, the
frequency is about 60 percent, Vie

the 99 foster homes in Durham
County, said the system is over-
whelmed by the numbers of chil-
dren losing their parents.

In Durham, police deal with
children so often they tell stories
about changing diapers, treating
hungry kids to Big Macs for lunch,
and baby-sitting the children at po-

The fortunate children can

aunt when their parents go to jail.
But those arrangements can be tem-

The Red Cross was shelter-

Estimates on the number of
people camping outside the offi-

Jim Cooper of Tennessee's
plan targets health insurance com-
panies more so than employers. No
one could be denied coverage be-

ees could split premiums. Lancaster
believes this proposal is receiving
equal support from Republicans
and Democrats alike.
"I think you're going to see a
real push for them Congress to
pass somethingbefore we go home
said Lancaster.
Lancaster is unsure of what
will passbutbelieves that universal
coverage and employee mandates
will not pass. He is also strongly
opposed to Clinton's proposed to-

Minges. They can't get to cam-

Chestnut admitted that it
was the student's responsibility
to know the bus schedule and
get there on time, but said, "If
I'm paying for it, I also have the
right to have the service i f I want
it there. If you have to wait 10
minutes there and then it's an-
other 10-minute ride, then that
is 20 minutes
Responding to a question
about the number of spaces taken
by the rec center, Speier insisted
that the university replaced
them. "We put in more spaces
than we displaced before fall
semester even started because
we anticipated fencing that area
off he said.
The committee then formu-
lated questions that they would
need to decide upon at a later
date. They eventually settled on
three questions; how much to
budget for parking, what level
of service to provide and who
can park where and for how
Chairman Chestnut turned
the first question over to Brown
and Getsinger to consider. For
the latter question, he created a
subcommittee to be chaired by
Dean Speier to debate the issue
and bring back recommenda-
tions. SGA Vice President Troy
Dreyfuss is the student repre-
sentative on this subcommittee.
While the committee de-
bated such plans as a graduated
fee scale for parking based on
accessibility, a lottery for pre-
mium spaces and a seniority sys-
tem for the best places, they did
not reach a consensus on any
Director of Parking and
Traffic Services Patricia Gertz in-
dicated that the committee will
not be able to raise fees for 1994-
95. "A decision is really going
to have to come before March. I
have to order permits, and if we
change the style . . . she said.
"We are talking about a
long range plan, Chestnut said
"We might have to give a year.
We might not raise it next year
Getsinger's Discussion Pa-
per lists other important facts
concerning parking on campus.
For the 6,500 spaces on main
campus, ECU sold 10,000 park-
ing decals. The 6,500 figure was
prior to the fencing off of the
Mendenhall lot.
Parking needs for 2000 are
projected to be 7,362spacesfora
"low level of service" based on a
student population of 22,308. For
a medium level of service, the
parking needs figure rises to
8,923. The campus master plan
currently calls for 1,100 addi-
tional spaces (for a total of 7,600)
to be added by 2000.

Focus on abortion sharpens over weekend I
Rot' vs. Wade. The single-most decisive
Supreme Court ruling of the Seventies. If you
weren't aware of the fact, this Saturday marked
the 21st anniversary of the decision that af-
firmed a constitutional right to abortion. And
along with it came the usual protests and
marches by anti-abortion activists.
This year, however, brought a focused
message aimed directly at the president, as if
he single-handedly took abortion rights by the
hand and crammed the concept down the
throats of the American people. The allega-
tions, though, should come as a surprise to no
one, in an issue that has caused bitter debate
since its emergence two decades ago.
The activists say that Clinton's plan to
include abortion in his health care program
gives new urgency to their cause. Representa-
tive Christopher Smith, R-N.J urged march-
ers to step up their fight against abortion be-
cause "with Clinton's aggressive assault on
children well under way we don't have a
moment to lose These people make it sound
like Clinton sits behind his desk in the Oval
Office and plots day and night towards what
they would consider the elimination of chil-
dren (since pro-lifers and pro-choicers are in
disagreement about when life begins).
That allegation is just as proposterous as
the view pro-choice activists take towards the
other side: that everyone from that camp is a
Bible-totin' Christian.
Abortion is an issue people take very
personally. Which is why the president's deci-
sion to include abortion in the basic benefits all
Americans would be guaranteed has met with
such resistance. Supporters, of course, say the
procedure and contraceptives mustbe included
in any health care plan to help reduce the num-
ber of unwanted pregnancies.
The problem, when you take a magnifying
glass and realty look at abortion, is that the
activists are using religion to justify their beliefs
� in country that has flourislwd on the separa-
tion of church and state. The simple ideals that
allowed this country to grow into what it is � a
beacon of freedom � have been twisted to
support the religious right.
With religion serving as the justification,
protestors gather outside of abortion clinics and
taunt, plead with and generally harrass those
entering the clinics. Without regard to the feel-
ings and emotions of the women, they impose
the "right beliefs" upon others. As of Monday,
however, theSupremeCourt ruled unanimously
that abortion rights advocates may use a federal
racketeering law to sue the protestors who block
women's access to the building.
The decision, while focused only on inter-
preting a federal law, is a big victory for the
National Organization of Women, which took
the case to the high court. There is still work to
be done, in terms of defining the legal issues
surrounding anti-abortion activities. Waiting to
be clarified (by July) is how far courts and local
governments may go in restricting protestors
outside abortion clinics. This could have enor-
mous impact across the nation.
Perhaps the words of Florida's Supreme
Court ruling last October say it best, stating that
while the Constitution's First Amendment "con-
fers on each citizen a powerful right to express
oneself, it gives the picketer no boon to jeopar-
dize the health, safety and rights of others
By Brian Hall
Roe v. Wade interfered with political process
This weekend marked the
twenty-first anniversary of
what is always described as the
"landmark decision" Roe vs.
Wade. It was a landmark deci-
sion because it marked the high
point (hope-
fully) of judicial �������
activism in this
country. The
Supreme Court
created a new
right out of
whole cloth.
In the
words of
Kinsley, liberal
pro-choice lawyer and colum-
nist, the "legal reasoning in Roe
was, in a word, a mess. There
was almost no effort to explain
where this 'right' to abortion
came from (We also agree
that the decision was one of the
worst things to happen to lib-
eralism. More on that later.)
The only attempt at a le-
gal justification is that it is an
expansion of the court's 1965
decision that in the
"penumbrasformed by ema-
nations" of the inferential right
to privacy, Americans have a
right to contraceptives.
I do not dispute that there
is a right to privacy. Indeed, I
believe that the government al-
ready interferes with our pri-
vate lives too much. The fal-
lacy in using this right to jus-
tify a right to abortion is that
every other privacy decision of
me high court involves protect-
ing the exercise of political free-
dom or controlling the power
of police.
Both of these are explic-
itly and prominently mentioned
in the Bill of Rights. Abortion
involves neither of these.
For example, no reason-
able person would dispute that
people have a right to be pro-
t e c t e d
questions, such as
when life begins,
do not belong in
the Constitution.
from the
state, were
it to decree
that they
may not
use contra-
ceptives in
the privacy
of their
homes, as
was ruled
in 1965.
Whether this right should
be extended to abortion is an-
other matter entirely. For, in
abortion, there may (or may not,
depending on personal belief)
be another person, the unborn
child, involved. No sensible con-
struction of the right to privacy
would permit a sadist to torture
a masochist to death in the pri-
vacy of their own home.
This type of legal reason-
ing almost boundlessly en-
hances the power of the state.
Once constitutional law be-
comes, in the words of a Justice
Department brief from 1985, a
"picnic to which the framers
bring the words and the judges
bring the meaning the sys-
tem is in place for judicial tyr-
Perhaps, like those on the
pro-choice side, you like the way
the court has ruled in the past.
How long will it be until that
same power falls into the hands
of those with whom you dis-
For example, most people
do not agree that drugs should
be legal, even in the privacy of
one's own home. Using even
clearer reasoning than that used
in Roe, the high court could rule
at any time that the right of pri-
vacy extends to drugs, though
that would greatly reduce the
power of the police. Or, using a
similarly loose reading of the
"due process" clause of the Fifth
Amendment, the five justices
could rule that abortion de-
prives the unborn of life, and is
therefore unconstitutional.
The moral of all this is that
metaphysical questions, such as
when life begins, do not belong
in the Constitution. Abortion in-
volves the competing desires of
society to protect life and the
individual's desire for control
of her own life and body.
Such conflicts involving
societal mores should be de-
cided by the people's represen-
tatives at the state level. If Rot'
had not interfered with the nor-
mal political process, then abor
tion would be widely available
now, as Justice Ruth Bader
Ginsburg testified in her Senate
confirmation hearings.
Rot' was bad for liberalism,
because overnight it created a
new mass movement of previ-
ously uninvolved, social-issue
conservatives This new move-
ment bodes ill for all of us, be-
cause it has fallen into the hands
of the religious right.
While I do not intend to
bash conservative Christians
(since I am one myself), I cannot
deny that too many of its lead-
ers have an intolerant nature
which will be dangerous when
they come to power.

Professors' initial tactics prove sneaky later
During the first week of the
semester, students fill a classroom
10 minutes early awaiting the
professor's arrival. We have all
been well-fed and well-rested dur-
ing the holiday break and with this
much-needed rejuvenation, we
declare that this is going to be a
Dean's List semester. By selecting
our seat, we mark our territory so
that we may present to the profes-
sor a picture of commitment and
consistency. The last remaining
minutes until the class begins we
mingle with familiar classmates
and catch up on the details of old
friends' lives.
As our appointed leader en-
ters, his weighty stack of introduc-
tory materials seems to will to their
bearer that at any second they will
topple to the floor, destroying any
sense of organization. He begins
with the usual welcoming address
and then, with determination, pulls
from the bottom of his stack that
familiar print-out from which he
will methodically sound out each
name awaiting the traditional re-
sponse or gesture that assures we
are all in the right class at the right
After the completion of the
roll, we all await the 4- to 5-page
syllabus containing the goals, ob-
jectives, dates and assignments to
which we must strictly adhere in
order to pass the class.
This is where the tactics be-
gin! The professor says something
like, "Well, I didn't have time to
complete the course syllabus, so
why don't we just open up with a
nice discourse on the history and
purposeof (Youfillinthe
blank.) For the next three class
periods students find themselves
in an arena where they can openly
discuss topics pertaining to the
subject matter, jot down short
words or phrases to help their
memories recall a certain point of
interest, and think, "Wow! What a
great class! 1 can share my view-
point with others
Not so fast there. Did you
ever stop to think that this person
has an ulterior motive in this action
he so casually dismisses as a result
of a lack of time? Here's news for
you, he does. Don't think for a
minute this person has the intellect
to receive a doctorate in something
or other only on the basis of his
ability to do thorough research or
publish instead of perish. Perhaps
some of our established educators
are no longer the shakers or the
movers, but they will forever re-
main the thinkers. By not shoving
a 4- to 5-page syllabus down our
throats the first couple class peri-
ods they begin to meticulously cul-
tivate a relationship that makes it
tough for students to abort.
The first few classes involve a
nice exchange of intellectual inter-
course among you, the professor
and your classmates. The profes-
sor provokes a positive image in
everything, and repeatedly encour-
ages his open door policy to "come
up and see me sometime Stu-
dents have now been sucked into a
vacuum like pieces of old lint off a
worn carpet. Through the lively
discourse in class we have devel-
oped a vision of a God. He is kind,
caring, funny, respectable, not to
mention omniscient and omnipo-
tent. We have been blinded by his
good-guy personage and feel privi-
leged to be a part of his class. Now,
he's got us right where he wants
us, and he knows it.
As we file in for the third or
fourth class period, something is
different. The kind brow is now
pointed and menacing. The eyes
are somewhat glaring and beady.
The smile is more like a smirk and
his hands are gently caressing a 3-
foot high pile of papers. Here it is.
It's an 8-page death doctrine he
calls a syllabus and by the time we
finish its every detail, we are psy-
chologically screwed. By the end
of the semester we will have read
20 novels, 1,000 or more pages from
various, $60 anthologies, com-
pleted 6 papers and 5 research as-
signments, and have been tested,
quizzed or exa mined on every fact,
theory, classification or calculation.
How can this be? We begin to
rationalize like old lovers: We were
so good to each other! Didn't we
share the same feelings?! What
have I done to deserve this?! And
so it goes.
Open discussion has be-
come extinct, and each class pe-
riod has become a confined lec-
ture. We listen to this person an-
swer his own questions and fasci-
nate no one but himself by regur-
gitating those lofty ideals and that
high-fallutin' mumbo-jumbo jar-
gon he worked so hard to achieve
through his many yearsof educa-
tion. We are finishing one
thought, and he is four sentences
into another. Eventually, we en-
ter each class lethargically, mak-
ing sure we never sit in the same
seat so this monster cannot sink
his fangs into our jugulars when
he asks a question that, miracu-
lously, he's not going to answer
himself, yet certainly, we are never
prepared to answer.
When we finally muster up
enough courage to speak with this
bohemian after class, he says, "see
me during my office hours So
we go. After 10 minutes of stut-
tering and stammering, we exit
the obtrusive den of the demon
with the words, "refer to your
syllabus" echoing inside our di-
minutive minds.
Finally, we must all keep in
mind that no matter what our
defense, the professor feels no
remorse in expecting the impos-
sible. Why? Because the elite
educator believes his is the only
class we signed up for; we have
no jobs, no families, no friends,
and because we have no social
lives, we have nothing better to
do anyway. He knows he has
trapped us! He knows the psy-
chological tug-of-war of whether
to like him or hate him will carry

The Economics of the Citibank
Classic Visa card. How no annual fee, student discounts
and Price Protection create upward growth, a variety of factors have been suggested
as contributing to the economic growth of students, including (1) more lottery winners between the
ages of 18 and 22, (2) a 37 increase on earnings from bottle and can returns, (3) more students
doubling earnings in the lightning round of game shows, and (4) the Citibank Classic Visa� card. It's
this last one, however, that affects most students. 1 The Citibank Classic Visa card offers immediate
savings to student cardmembers. You can now receive the Citibank Classic card with No Annual Fee.
You can capitalize on a $20 Airfare Discount for domestic flights,1 a low variable interest rate of
15.4? as well as savings on mail order
purchases, sports equipment, music and
magazines. One might even have enough
savings to reinvest in a CD or two (the
musical kind, of course). 1 On the way to

know, panic, such as in the Great Panics of 1837, 1857 and 1929 can cause a downswing in a

Fulghum visits ECU in Feb.
'Renaissance man' brings best -
selling wit and wisdom
By Andy Suss
Photo courtesy of ECU News Bureau
Best-selling author Robert Fulgham will speak at Wright Auditorium on
Monday, Feb. 28th. Tickets are available now and will sell out fast.
Staff Writer
Not many authors earn the
distinction of having two books
vie simultaneously for the num-
ber one spot on the best-seller
list. Robert Fulghum earned that
mighty distinction when his first
two books, All I Really Need to
Know I learned in Kindergarten and
It was on Fire When I lay Down on
It, did just that.
His third book, Uh-Oh, and
his fourth and latest, Maybe
(Maybe Not), which came out last
August, are best-sellers now.
Point being, his books are great,
he is great, and he's coming to
ECU to speak and deliver a night
of mirth and truth Feb. 28 at 8:00
p.m. in Wright Auditorium.
Mr. Fulghum has been ev-
erywhere, Seattle to Thailand, and
done it all, bartender to minister.
He's even studied in a Zen Bud-
dhist monastery. He's a sculptor,
painter, a true renaissance man.
As Diana West, of Insight said,
"It's Andy Rooney mets Kahlil
Gibran and gets hugged by Leo
Buscaglia while listening to "A
Prairie Home Companion
So what is he all about? Ev-
erything. What did he learn in
kindergarten? "Shareeverything.
Play fair. Don't hit people. Put
things back where you found
them. Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't
yours. Say you're sorry when
you hurt somebody And some
other things that would only serve
to make our lives and our world
a better place.
In Uh-Oh, Fulghum offers an
equation that encapsulates his
view of the boundaries of our
existence: "Uh-oh" "oh-wow"
"uh-oh" "oh, God" "ah-
hah But wait, there's more! In
Maybe (Maybe Not), Fulghum jux-
taposes the crazy maxims society
belches, for instance, "Nothing
ventured, nothing gained and
"Better safe than sorry Or "You
can't teach an old dog new tricks
and "It's never too late too learn
Looking at these nutty things,
Fulghum writes, "I once began a
list of the contradictory notions I
hold . The list goes on forever.
Once I got so caught up in this
kind of thinking that I wore two
buttons on my smock when I was
teaching art. One said, 'Trust me,
I'm a teacher The other replied,

There was a time, not so long
ago, when giants walked the earth.
Itwas the Age of the RockGods,and
none trod the barren soil so heavily
as those mysterious harbingers of
evil ruin, KISS. Their names and
deeds are legend, and any true mem-
ber of the KISS Army can red te them
chapter and verse. But the age of
KISS is gone now; the once-mighty
Legion of Hell has been replaced by
a group of pink-faced human pre-
tenders. The heroes of our child-
hood nightmares have disappeared

Strutter, the KISS tribute band that
played to a packed house at the Attic

live on stage, a real KISS show

demands for the crowd to cheer in
the middleof the songs! Rightdown
to Gene Simmons' demon boots and
leather bat-wing ort, Strutter has
everything that made the original
KISS the coolest thing on the planet
back in the 70s.
Strutter sticks very strictly to
the music of the original KISS; they
play nothing recorded after Peter
Criss and Ace Frehley left the band.
This makes their set fast and mean
and full of real crowd pleasers. Open-
ing (as KISS always did) with "De-
troitRockCity Strutter ripped into
a two-hour show that included such
KISS gems as "Love Gun "Cold
Gin and, of course, "Strutter
In a tender moment, the
drummer, "Peter Criss stepped out
front to sing the ballad "Beth long
regarded by many as one of the worst
songs KISS ever put to vinyl. But,
just like the real Peter Criss, our
Memorex version passed a bunch of
roses out to the crowd, perched on
his stool, and proceeded to sing his
burly heart out. Not a dry eye in the
house, I tell you
Other highlights included
"Ace Frehley's" guitar solo, during
which his instrument, yes, actually
smoked. "PaulStanley" worked the
crowd, flirting and primping and
demanding applause like a Roman
emperor. In his glittery purple fur-
lined waist coat, he played his role of
the band's pretty boy to the hilt.

After the first half of the book,
Koontz slides down into a didac-

slow and plodding. Coming close
to preaching about the state of

Western wean It's not just for farm hands anymore
DENVER (AP) � Snug jeans,
well-fitted boots, a brightly colored
shirt with bold strips and wide-
brimmed, black hat.
Its a cowboy for sure.
Or is it?
Western clothing, a fashion once
favored mainly by ranch hands, ro-
deo performers and people who
make their living from the earth, is
more popular than ever in main-
stream America.
"Western wear has been trend-
ing wary steadily upw ird for about
three years saysjuliet Wright, vice
president of merchand ising for Den-
ver-based Miller Stockman.
"Country dancing and country-
music has never been more popular
than it is now, and they are driving
the market. Western wear is being
perceived less as costume dressing
and more as weekend casual wear
Single articles of Western cloth-
ing, she adds, also are worn as ac-
cents to other types of clothing.
Jack Weil, whose family has op-
erated Rockmount Ranch Wear
Manufacturing Co. here for almost
50 years, estimates that Western
clothing holds a 3 percent to 7 per-
cent share of the nation's huge gar-
ment industry.
"As it becomes fashion, it will
surge but,actually,it is a very small
part of the scheme of things he
Wright savs the Western cloth-
ing market actually is divided into
two segments: core, for the honest-
to-goodnesscowboy or rancher, and
crossover, for fans who are reluc-
tant to go all the way, want to con-
serve money, or whojustdon't know
what to wear and how to wear it.
Crossover customers, Wright
says, include those who "don't nec-
essarily have a farming or ranching
background, but enjoy wearing
Western clothing becauseof its qual-
ity, fit and the way it looks
Here's how Wright describes
the market:
�Boots. The core market pre-
fers the roper style with low heels,
round toe and short top. Core cus-
Continued from page 9
tomers also spend hundreds of dol-
lars on custom-made footwear.
Crossovercustomers usually prefer
more modestly priced boots and
often select what she described as
"soft, touchv-feelv" leathers with
pointed toes.
�Jeans. The core market favors
high-backed jeans which evoked
from the styles designed by Holly-
wood tailor Rodeo Ben in the 1940s
with input of rodeo cowboys Jim
Shoulders, Freckles Brown and oth-
ers. Rodeo Ben, by the way, gener-
ally iscreclited with shifting the zip-
per from the side of women's jeans
to the front.
�Shirts. Colorful shirts of wide,
vertical: tripe with buttons are hot
with core customers. Earth tones or
jewel tones will become more popu-
larnextvear, Wright predicts. Snaps,
which Weil credits his father with
introducing to cowboy clothing, are
becoming more important.
�Hats. A fur felt hat with 4-
inch brim, price range S130-$150, is
the core customer's choice. Black, of
course. Crossover customers will
select a less-expensive hat, some-
time made of wool telt.
There's not a lot of debate on
how the whole thing started.
Drovers � many of them Civil
War veterans still in cavalry boots,
campaign hats and vestiges of uni-
form clothing � began gathering
and moving large herds of cattle to
thebeef-hungrv markets in the East.
The inevitable meeting of these
cowboys with Mexican vaqueros
added the dash of salsa remaining
today�fitted doming, hand-made
riding boots and the twinkling of
silver and tooled leather.
Western style was honed by
Tom Mix, the cowboy actor, who
favored high-heeled boots, bib shirts
and high-crowned, wide-brimmed
When Mix died in the wreck of
his Cord roadster on Oct. 12, 1940,
Western stvle drifted, interrupted
for several vearsbv World War II as
America's young men switched to
olive drab and combat boots.
Despite the influence of Gene
Autrv and Roy Rogers during the
dawn of television, trend-setting in
cowbov garb already had begun to
shift to the rodeo arena.
Today's Western fashion state-
ments not only come from rodeo
cowboys bu t from a Nashville stable
of country music performers whose
trademark can be the way a hat is
Bob Posev, a vice president with
Resistol Hat Co. in Garland, Texas,
says his firm even has a 1; ne of cross-
over hats. This line, he says, is
cheaper, since the hats usually have
Gene didn't sing as much as the real
one, he grimaced and mugged and
played the resident ogre every bit as
well. The band member who looked
the most like his counterpart (right
down to the huge tongue), "Gene" is
what reallv made the show come
alive. Hebroughtouta flamingtorch
and breathed fire. He spit blood. He
relished in evil. He lived the legend.
Strutter finished their set with
"Rock and Roll All Night leaving
the drunken crowd exhausted. Then,
just to make sure they pushed things
completely over the top, they did a
one-song encore of something un-
recognizable. It was one of those
songs about rock 'n' roll, and it was
prettv forgettable. Strutter simply
stayed on stage too long.
Seeing Strutter is like taking a
dip in a particularly embarrassing
shared-gene pool; it's like celebrat-
ing the death of Neanderthal man.
Every person in the audience knew
every song by heart. Some of them,
were laughing, wallowing in some
goofy relic of childhood. Others (the
scary ones) were taking it all seri-
ously. These were the true KISS fans,
the 35-year-old men reliving high
school glories and the young

An injury-riddled 49er squad
ventured into Minges Coliseum
on Saturday night and came away
with a hard-fought 74-65 victory
against the Lady Pirates.
The I ady Pirate defense was
excellent, forcing UNC-C to turn
the ball over 31 times during the
course of the game. However, the
offense had problemsconverting,
and only scored five points off of
the 49er turnovers. Meanwhile,
UNC-C scored 14 points off of 23
ECU turnovers, and that was the
difference in the ball game.
The 49ers played relentless
full-court defense all night long,
trying to get the Lady Pirates to
rush their passes and shots. ECU,
though, was hot early and played
smar t. They used their team quick-
ness to penetrate through the press
and tooka 11-6 firsthalf lead when
point guard Danielle
Charlesworth popped a three-
pointer with 12.53 remaining,
causing UNC-C to take a time out
to regroup.
After the time out, UNC-C
looked like a completely different
squad, and took the lead and mo-
mentum away from the Lady Pi-
rates. The 49er size advantage be-
came very distinct and obvious, as
they dominated the offensive
boards, getting repea ted shots un-
derneath the basket from 6-foot-3
center Charlette Hargrove and 5-
foot-lOforwardCharleneReid. Af-
ter beingdownby 10 with 2:121eft,
the Lady Pirates stormed back and
went into the locker room down
by only three, at 32-29.
At the half, ECU was led in
with nine points, and "Fruky"
Blackmon, who had eight. UNC-
C was led by their "Triple Tow-
ers Hargrove, Reid, and 6-3
senior Heather Hart, who com-
bined in 7-10 shooting for 20
first half points.
EastCarolinaonceagain re-
linquished control of the boards,
opting for more outside shoot-
ing. Shooting improved, but all
ECU could do was nibble away
at the lead before slipping back
again. The closest that the Lady
Pirates could get was with 11:04
remaining, Charlesworth hit her
third three-point basket of the
game, pulling ECU within three
points of the lead.
Within a 16 second period,
both Charlette Hargrove and 6-
foot-4 juniorTiszara Kelly fouled
out of the game for the49ers,but
the damage was already done.

The Pirates were currently
tied for fourth in the divison (2-3,

improve on their overall 6-8

and he is determined to make it is
"Right now we are doing one

When things are not alwavs
going well, Lyons likes to keep
things loose around the hardcourt.
Earlier this year during the Lady
Pirate team photos, Lester jumped
up behind the camera and pre-
tended to throw a basketball at
them. All the players laughed and
jumped back just before their pic-
ture was taken.
He was named pre-season
MVP by the press on Media Day
in Richmond and although he has
not won any weekly MVP, he still
has to be considered as one of the
CAA's best.
"It all boilsdown to how your
team plays at the end of the year
and what you do doing the course
of the year. Right now I think I'm
doing the things that are helping

While Lyons is the focal point
i f the backcourt, this year he has
had some quality support from
guards Kareem Richardson and
two surprising freshmen, Skipp
Schaefbauer and Tim Basham.
Richardson, the starting point
guard, is averaging eight points
an'd four assists a game.
Schaefbauer and Basham have
combined for 11 points coming

New rules affect play
By Ashley Neal
Staff Writer
"My fear is that it is going to
be ,m uglier game than it hasbeen
in the past Eddie Payne, ECU's
head basketball coach, said.
This was the forecast Payne
gave last November when pre-
dicting the new 35-second shot
clock and deletion of the 5-second
Prior to the '9394 season, 45
seconds was the allotted amount
of time players had to shoot the
ball. In addition to knocking 10
seconds oft the shot clock, the
NCAA abolished the 5-second
rule. This rule required a player,
dribbling or not, toeither pass the
ball or break an imaginary 6-toot
plane between the possessor and
defender within five seconds.
The NCAA altered the rules
this season in an attempt to speed
up the game and create more ac-
tion. In the NBA, a 2Jsecond -hot
clock is used to allow a lot more
shots to be taken, thus leading to
higher scoring games. Last fall,
when thechange was announced,
several coaches expressed oppos
ing views to whether the new rule
would help or hinder player and
team performance.
GMU head coach Paul
Westhead stated that the new
alterations in college basketball
rules and regulations would
place more control in the play-
ers' hand and give officials less.
On the other hand, Coach Payne
was a representative of coaches
who felt the amendments may
cause more turnovers and un-
necessary aggression on the
court. Opposition between these
two coaches was synonymous
of the division among CAA
coaches concerning their views
of the changes being made and
how the new rules could affect
this season.
" I didn't like it Payne said.
"I thought we had a good game
with the 45-second clock
Payne says he and other
coaches were caught off-guard
because their opinions were not
consulted, and there was no ex-
perimentation before changing
the rule.

clock, but do not focus on it dur-

Lyons is not new to eastern
North Carolina. He is from
Lewiston, N.C and went to Bertie
High School. Lyons started roam-
ing around that Bertie gym when
he was about five years old. His
mother was a coach at the school,
and he would always be around a
basketball. The game sort of grew
on him. He gives a lot of credit for
his success to his mom and he says
she was a big influence on him.
Lyon's mother also coached bas-
ketball at N.C. A&T.
If you have been to some ECU
basketball games over the years,
you might think of Lester Lyons
as a real outgoing guy because he
is a quality player. Off the court,
Lyons goes through a change.
"I'm just one of those real quiet
off-the-scene guys. Out here on
the court I'm wild and live, but
once I get off the basketball court,
it's a whole different Lester
Lyons Lester said smiling. "I
keep to myself a lot when I'm not
with the guys
Lyons is a hard, dedicated
worker and he has proven that.
Prior to the season, he called a
team meeting to discuss the plans
and future for this present season.
Head coach Eddie Payne learned
of this and was very impressed.
He said that this was the first time
that he had heard of a player do-
ing this.
"Lester works really hard
Payne said, "He's a good worker.
From the feedback I've gotten he
was one of the hardest workers
we had in the preseason
When Lester is not swapping
basketballs through nets, he likes
to sit back and enjoy some good
old music. He calls himself a mu-
sic man. He enjoys all types, but
he has his favorites. He enjoys
slow jams with Silk and listens to
rappers MC Lyte and Queen
Latifah. He will also get comfort-
able to the tunes of "The Great"
Bob Marley.
"I grew up as an only child,
and I played and did everything
by myself Lyons said. "I used to
use the radio as a toy and it really
got me into music
Back on the court, Lyons has
put up some outstanding statis-
tics. He owns the record for career
three-point goals made, career and
single season steal records. He is
second in career assists, third in
career blocked shots and free
throw percentage. Lyons enjoys
hitting the outside jumper and is
fourth in career three-point field
goal percentage.
�Lyons is also a hit with his
schoolwork. He took advanced
courses all through his time at
Bertie and graduated in the top 15
percent of his class. He is now
majoring in construction manage-
ment and hopes to graduate this
summer. If there is no more bas-
ketball after college, he would like
to manage or supervise a construc-
tion company.
"If I do the things I am sup-
posed to do this year, and have a
good strong year, and we do some-
thing team-wise, I think I'll have
a chance to do something in bas-
The road to becoming a senior
is a long maturing process. The
transition can be very difficult.
You are on your own for the first
time in life and you have to take
on responsibility.
"It was real difficult for me
Lyons said. "I had a lot of adjust-
ing to do. It was a lifetime expe-
rience. I had thoughts about go-
ing home after my freshman
People do not just mature off
the court, but on the court as well.
The past two seasons Lyons has
averaged 15.5 points per game
and 2.7 assists. This year so far he
is averaging 17.3 points per game,
which is fifth in the division. He
also ranks fifth in three point field
goal percentage, .414. Lyons went
through a long learning process
since he first came to ECU.
"Personally I think I've ma-
tured and played more under
control, learning the system and
knowing what it takes to go out
and win a ball game Lyons said,
"Early in my career, I played out
of control a lot and didn't know
what was going on out there, and
now I just calmed down a lot
more. The coach asked me to do a
lot more things for the team and
I understand my role
A team will also look to lead-
ers, especially the seniors. Some
greats have led by example, like
baseball great Pete Rose, and
some lead vocally, like NBA star
Charles Barkley.
"A team is going to always
need a leader Lester added. "I
think I do a lot more leading ac-
tively than vocally
Last year, the ECU team
