Students may only need $50
By Laura Allard
Staff Writer
!I students are working
on .1 program that could save stu-
dents $50 to $100 each semester
on the tost ot books.
the program is based on a
system currently used at Appala-
chian State University, students
,it ASU rent their books each se-
mester tor a $48 fee, which is in-
corporated in their student fees.
Students then receive a card
in the mail entitling them to pick
uptheirbooksatnocharge. At the
endoie.n h semester students may
purchase the books from the uni-
versity tor ,) 20 pen ent disi I unit
"It's something we've
thought about and are going to
explore said s ,A President

mation-gathering stage right

would like to see it in place by the
springsemesteroJ 1995.1 fowever,
Thomas said it depends on how
much help or resistance the stu-
dent organizations get from the
university and the community.
Thomas is currently working on
the project
A 1992 telephone survey ot
M4 ASU students, compiled b)
the ASUOfficeofStudent Devel-
opment, indicated a 92.2 pen ent
approval rating tor the book
rental program. An Oct. 1991 re-
port m the Chronicle of Higher
Education determined the
average college student spends
S-IHt annually on books and -up
plies he average ASU student
spends $201.40 annualK includ-
ing rental lees.
Thomas and I )yer plan to
form a university u ide i ommit-
tee to resean h the program and
determine its value for E( I stu-
dents. Ihrv are also planning a
trip to ASU where they will re-
sean h the details of the program,
such as boi k selection.
In spite ot the obvious ad-
vantages ot the program, Dyei
and Thomas pointed out that
there are ei tain drawbacks the
university must consider.
"I don't think it will be fea
sible unless the Student Store can
make money. We don't want
them to lose money on what the)
do tor the students Dyer sank
Thomas is hopeful about the
program, although he realizes it would require a large ini-
tial investmentby the uni ersity,
and it has not been determined
where these funds would origi-
nate. I he program I I mid also be
costly tor I he Student Storesi i im-

FSU develops hi-tech college ID card
For students at Florida State University in Tallahassee, pay-
ing tuition and buying books can now be as easy as showing their
ID cards. The combination identificationdebit card can also be
used to buy food, clothes and tires from over 200 area merchants.
The FSU Card can even be used to pay for a haircut, make a long-
distance phone call, pay overdue library fines or get money from an
automatic teller machine. The card operates through Tallahassee
State Bank and is now covered by the Honor ATM and Plus
Network systems. The university is currently refitting exterior
doors in residence halls to replace keys with the FSUCard. Card
holders will also be able to receive financial aid from granting
agencies directly into their FSUCard account.
MIT settles antitrust suit
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Justice De-
partment have settled an antitrust suit that accused the school of
fixing prices that financial aid applicants paid to attend. MIT
contended that establishing such prices with other Ivy League
schools allowed the greatest number of talented, needy students to
receive a limited amount of aid. For years, MIT met regularly with
Harvard, Yale, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton
and Perm to agree upon proposed tuition levels for students who
had been admitted to more than one of the institutions. The U.S.
Justice Department contended, however, that such meetings vio-
lated the Sherman Antitrust Act. The schools denied any wrongdo-
ing, but agreed to stop meeting and sharing information. MIT
continued the case until December, when the school agreed to cease
the practice as well.

Towering textbook totals touches off talks j
What would you say to renting text-
Let's be honest � textbook prices are
ridiculously high. In some cases, student
bookstores have been known to jack prices
up 300 percent past normal retail price. Now,
come on � inflation is one thing, but 300
percent? Really
Currently, ECU is putting together the
needed information and gathering opinions
about implementing a campus-wide system
where students could rent books. The idea
came from Appalachian State University.
ASU students rent their books each semes-
ter for a $48 fee, which is incorporated into
their student fees. If they like a book so
much that they want to keep it for their very
own (and hug it and squeeze it and name it
George), they can purchase the text at the
end of the semester for a 20 percent dis-
If this system were implemented at
ECU, it could save students anywhere from
$50 and $175 each semester. Fifty bucks here,
�a hundred bucks there � it all adds up. The
�average English major, for example, could
save $1,400 in four years. Not bad, when you
consider who ultimately gets this textbook
money � those nasty, corporate cash-grub-
And it all starts with us. We are a cap-
tive audience. Putty in the hands of the
corrupt. We need textbooks, simply because
we're students in college and classes require
books. So where do we go? To one of two
places: UBE or Student Stores. Since these
people obviously know that we are in need,
they are free to charge as much as their little
hearts desire, above and beyond the extra that
the publishing houses are charging.
To look at it another way, first the pub-
lishers raise the prices a little to make a profit.
After that, the books are sent and the book-
stores themselves, in order to make a profit,
raise the price again. The end result � a inno-
cent, needy student is stuck with a book (that
initially cost $20) costing $80, or an increase of
300 percent.
SGA Speaker Brynn Thomas would like
to see this implemented by the spring semes-
ter of 1995. Don't hold your breath, though.
Still in its infant stage, this plan has yet to be
mulled over by a committee. Also, the univer-
sity would initially have to invest money into
the program, which we all know is highly
unlikely (unless they're investing in some-
thing like a rec center or a pretty clock or
something). The question has also come up
about the fate of UBE, since it is not a univer-
sity-run store.
There's a lot of planning ahead, but hope-
fully, with a little insight, the university can
do something for us that we'll really care
about and appreciate. Books are wonderful
tools in the quest for a quality education, but
not if they cause a student to file for bank-
ruptcy in the process.
So keep your eyes peeled.
By Brian Hall
Bush administration mislabelled as conservative
In conversations in the
past few weeks, I have found
that people of all political
stripes still have the mistaken
belief that President Bush was
a conservative. One would
have thought that four years
ofhisincompe- MHMm
fence and mis-
handling of the
political legacy
left to him by
Reagan would
be enough to
disabuse any-
one of such no-
tons" �
T e m -
peramentally, as well as ideo-
logically. Bush was a classic
moderate. Any examination of
his record shows that Bush was
incapable of any sort of ideol-
ogy beyond a desire to be liked
and a near obsession with com-
promise, especially in domes-
tic policy.
There is nothing that
should irritate serious conser-
vatives than to hear the phrase
"Reagan-Bush administra-
tions because this suggests
that the two administrations
followed the same policies.
Bush inherited a vigorous
economy and a powerful po-
litical coalition of Americans
committed to limited govern-
ment, a strong na tional defense
and respect for the values upon
which society was built. Only
in these last two areas did Bush
even make even a passing at-
tempt to follow Reagan's ex-
The economy which Bush
inherited in January 1989 was
in its 75th month of continu-
ous growth. Eighteen million
new jobs had been created
since Reagan's tax cuts took
effect in 1983. Inflation was
down 13.5 from 1980, to only
4.6. The biggest economic prob-
lem he faced, the budget deficit,
had fallen for three consecutive
years. The Democrat-controlled
Congressional Budget Office
projected that it would be only
aHKHHHa $135 billion
in 1992, less
Bush was
incapable of any
sort of ideology

be liked and a near
obsession with
than 2 per-
cent of the
Gross Do-
m e s t i c
Instead, he
turned his
back on the
policies he
and agreed to the disastrous 1990
buaget deal. Predictably, this
biggest tax increase in history
(until President Clinton's bud-
get last summer) caused a reces-
sion and a dramatic increase in
the deficit.
Worse for conservatives
than the actual tax increases were
the loss of the ground which had
previously provided the best dis-
tinction betweei the two parties.
Had Bush but stood up to the
Congress (which throughout his
term was always, even at the end,
more unpopular than he) and
refused to budge from his cam-
paign promise, the American
people would have rallied to his
side, and the distinctions be-
tween the two parties would
have been fully seen. Instead,
Bush fueled the cynical belief that
there was no real difference be-
tween the two parties.
Bush also returned the
country to the Carter era policy
of over-regulation. He expanded
the number of federal regulators
back to the Carter level of 120,000.
He signed a new Clear Air Act,
which increased the cost of envi-
ronmental regulation from $25
to $40 billion, a nearly 33 percent

Americans obsessed with "real truth" dramas
increase, all for uncertain envi-
ronmental gains. His cabinet ap-
pointments, such as William
Reilly at the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, saddled small
businesses withbillions in higher
costs, paperwork and criminal
penalties for honest errors, as
well as instituted a new wetlands
which threatened the life sav-
ings of thousands of small prop-
erty owners. Between 1989 and
1992, the regulatory burden on
small business increased by more
than 34 percent.
As if all this were not bad
enough for conservatives, Bush
also let the proud Reagan record
of the '80s be bashed as merely a
"decadeof greed" when only the
"rich got richer" and the only
jobs created were for burger flip-
pers. Not once did he rise to the
defense of the policies which
formed the core of the Republi-
can strategy.
Bush even refused to de-
fend himself when accused of
racism after the Willie Horton ad
in 1988. Bush did support a few
good programs: school choice,
capital gains tax cuts and term
limits. But as in all things, he was
incapable of expressing logical
reasons why they should be en-
So I wish that we would get
rid of all these "Don't Blame Me,
I Voted For Bush" bumper stick-
ers. I will admit that I voted for
Bush. Given the options (a loon,
a prevaricator, and Bush) was
there any choice? But whether
Mr. Clinton or Mr. Bush won,
the basic course of the country
would be unchanged from the
previous four years.
Instead of talking about the
end of the Reagan-Bush era, we
should rather realize that, as John
O'Sullivan says, we are really in
the second (and hopefully last)
term of the Bush-Clinton era.
When I first decided to do
an opinion piece on the world
famous King of Pop Rock,
Michael Jackson, I found for the
first time that perhaps I had no
opinion, or that my opinion is as
ambiguous as all the facts sur-
rounding this notorious man and
the compromising situation his
accuser seems to be found. Un-
less you have been living in a
cave, everyone knows as much
as the next person, so let's skip
the recap and concentrate on
where the matter rests.
This past week, both par-
ties agreed to settle out of court
with a sum of any where from $5-
$10 million going to the young
boy and his family who are ac-
cusing Jackson of sexual miscon-
duct. At first, I, like a lot of the
general public, believed that this
act of payment was out of guilt.
Why pay if you didn't play, right?
If Michael Jackson is innocent,
why doesn't he lay his money
into the hands of justice and let it
ride? No matter what the star's
overhead or extensive invest-
ments, we all know he's got the
money to do it. Furthermore, our
legal system is supposed to be
the best in the world for finding
truth, deciding mercy and pre-
scribing the respective laws of
fairness. Unfortunately, this is
not always the case. (No legal
jargon pun intended.)
If we reluctantly look back
to the Rodney King incident, we
recall how an impartial 12-per-
son jury aquitted the four offic-
ers for something the entire coun-
try believed to be a clear-cut case
of police brutality and an extreme
violation of an individual's Con-
stitutional rights. Even George
Bush declared that this was
"truly a dark day in the Ameri-
can legal system, for justice
surely was not served
And we all remember the
resulting chaos and mayhem that
followed.Likewise, my own per-
sonal jury about the Mike Tyson
case is still out. As violent as this
man may have been with his
words, he was just as violent in
the ring. He was, and perhaps
will be again, a great fighter. He
now serves time for a rape he
says he did not commit and the
questions will forever go on: Why
was the girl with him for the
majority of the evening in a bar?
What was she doing in his hotel
room at 3 o'clock in the morn-
Undoubtedly, there are so
many more documented cases
throughout our legal history,
unpublicized as they maybe, that
continue to raise questions for
those closely involved. There is
hardly a week that elapses into
time that we don't see or hear a
show on TV involving a ques-
tionable decision handed down
by our courts. It is usually the
true story of this or the true story
of that, and as some way of find-
ing rights to a major network
and allow the general public to
decide vainly the Tightness or
wrongness of what has already
become a closed case. How many
different accounts did we
muddle through with the Amy
Fisher story? How many more
will we witness before the
Menendez trial is over f I believe
by the end of the year we will
watch two or three "real truths"
involving Michael Jackson.
Whether from the viewpoint of
the allegedly abused child, or the
money-hungry sister, LaToya,
these shows will be aired.
Let us suppose for a minute
that Michael Jackson had every
intention of staying the course
and pursuing every legal avenue
all the way to court. If we con-
sider all the barriers, just getting
there would be a show of ama-
teur riders in a steeplechase. The
first problem would be in find-
ing a fair, impartial jury of 12
who know very little about this
case and have not been swayed
by the multitude of media moni-
toring Jackson's every move.
Once these cave-dwellers have
been selected, the trial will be-
come a theatrical stage for the
well-paid attorneys and a de-
cision will be made based on
who can best deliver, act, per-
suade and reason with these
individuals. The courtroom
would be SRO with ticket
prices going for triple the cost
of one of Jackson's own con-
certs. For those of you who
don't carry cable, don't worry.
C-SPAN would happily oblige
by allowing a major network
full coverage, blacking out all
the best soaps.
When it's all said and
done, has the smoke really
cleared9 Perhaps we will only
be led into further confusion,
blinded by legalese loopholes,
left wondering if justice was
really served, and pondering
all those questions of, "Did
the child receive enough com-
pensation?" or "Did we send
an innocent man to prison?"
Unfortunately, many
people do not realize that an
out-of-court settlement is not
an admission of guilt. Perhaps
Michael Jackson, through ad-
vice of his counsel, of course,
had decided the hassle, the
intrusion and the publicity are
not worth the real cause of
finding truth for all the world
to see. However differing the
intentions may be, the gen-
eral public also does not real-
ize that a multi-million dollar
man writing a check for $10
mjllion is equivalent to one of
us tossing a few quarters to
the person on the street so that
he may buy a cup of coffee.
Yet the American public
is obsessed with truth. We
scream for the facts so that we
may vicariously feel more at
ease with some abstract truth
involving an icon in our own
time. And scream with obses-
sion we will. For in all its
vague ambiguity, the one clear
tact remaining is that once
again, we will be left with
never fully knowing the real
truth behind the King of Pop
Stuff you should know
� Starting Feb. 7 (and possibly lasting through Feb. 21) Cotanche Street, between 10th
and Reade, will be closed to all through traffic. This special little inconvenience is due in
thanks to ECU's brand-new kid on the block � the rec center. So far this jewel has taken
parking spaces, a few dozen healthy trees and now a through street that leads to the center
of Greenville. So now where will all the coo! people drive to show off their flourescent-lit
license plates, jacked-up trucks and the very special glowing neon undersides? They can
still hang at the Hardee's
� Dr. Jack Kevorkian began a petition drive yesterday to make assisted suicide legal in
Michigan. He needs more than 250,000 signatures to place a measure to amend the constitution
on the state's Novemeber ballot. Interesting to note is that in a telephone poll of 601 likely voters
statewide, the Detroit Free Press found that 58 percent of those polled supported the concept of
assisted suicide. So Kevorkian may get his wish after all
It's really not that difficult. Writing letters may not be the most exciting
thing to do, but you'd be surprised how much stuff you can get off your
chest. So in honor of that weight we call stress, sit down and pen a letter
about something that's been bothering you. All such letters may be sent
to: The Opinion Editor, The East Carolinian, Publications Bldg ECU,

Wright hosts Louisville Orchestra

Lawrence L. Smith will conduct the Louisville Orchestra when
ithey perform on Friday, Feb. 4, at 8:00 in W, ight Auditorium.
Staff Writer
The Louisville Orchestra is
coming to Wright Audi torium on
Friday, Feb. 4. The orchestra has
been the leading musical resource
in Louisville, Ky. , for over 30
The Orchestra performed its
first show at Memorial Audito-
rium on Nov. 8, 1937. Robert
Whitney conducted the perfor-
mance. In 1940, it started a series
of four annual programs for
school children called "Making
During World War II, the fu-
ture of the orchestra was in seri-
ous question. Fortunately, in 1942,
the women's association for the
Louisville Orchestra was estab-
lished to help raise support.
In 1947 the orchestra started
a series of state-wide appearances
throughout Kentucky. At the end
of the 1947-48 season, many
achievements were accom-
plished, but a large financial debt
had been established.
In 1948, Charles P. Farnsley,
who later became the Mayor of
Louisville, met with conductor
Robert Whitney to discuss finan-
cial matters. As a result of their
meeting, they worked out a pro-
gram of commissioning works by
major composers written espe-
cially for the Louisville Orchestra.
Soon after the program was
established, the Rockefeller Foun-
dation awarded the orchestra a
$500,000 grant. With the grant the
orchestra was able toestablish First
Edition Records, its own record
label. The orchestra continues an
active recording schedule with
more than 150 discs, representing
more than 250 composers.
The orchestra also has a his-
tory of introducing music to audi-
ences of all ages through certain
educational programs, such as the
"Listen and Look" expose.
Lawrence Leighton Smith
started as the Orchestra's music
director in 1983. He has gained
international recognition through
his appearances with orchestras
in the Soviet Union, Japan and
England. During the summer of
1986, he became the first Ameri-
can to record with a Russian sym-

National magazine seeks student works
iff Laura Jackman
Staff Writer

(r .
Ifyou like to write, or you think
�that you take pictures well, then a
travel magazine would like to see
lyour work.
Transitions Abroad, a national
magazine that features information
�on study, work and low-budget
travel abroad, is seeking contribu-
tions from student writers and pho-
jf. The photography contest is an
itnualevent, in which the firstplace
ifirinner receives $250, and the photo
wjll appear in an upcoming issue of
the magazine. All other photos re-
ceived will be considered for other
issues of Transitions Abroad and will
be paid by the magazine's standard
rate�$45 for inside photosand$125
for cover photos�if they are used.
Photos submitted for entry
should reflect the magazine's cul-
tural immersion philosophy of
learning by living alongside the
people of the host country. The pho-
tos should be black and white and
depict people in the context of their
normal lives, not as locals posing
for a foreigner's camera.
The magazine is particularly
looking for sensitivity and an un-
derstanding of the culture when it
judges the photos. Landscape, ar-
chitectural and abstract photos will
not be considered, and each photo
must be accompanied by an identi-
fication caption as well as the
photographer's name and address
on the back. Photos will only be
returned if a postage-paid return
envelope is enclosed.
The winner will be announced
in the JulyAugust issue.
In that same issue, Transitions
Abroad will introduce a student-
written column on educational
travel, work and study abroad called
"Student to Student Those stu-
dents who have studied abroad
should sha re their academic experi-
ences and personal benefits, as well
as practical details to assist others
who wish to travel abroad. Con-
tributors will be paid $75 upon pub-
lication, and the deadline for the

Renowned art collection on display in Raleigh
:By Bridget Hemenway
; Staff Writer
There is a saying many people
use about art: "Art is what you
make of it Many people, how-
ever, don't know what real art
looks like. Famous and impor-
tant art is very seldom seen by
�those who do not travel. All of
;that is about to change because
'on Feb. 5,1994, the North Caro-
lina Museum of Art will be fea-
turing a special collection of
�works for North Carolina. The
�exhibition includes 54 paintings
from 16 museums across the
country and the Musee du Lou-
vre in Paris. There are master-
pieces by Titian, El Greco, Rubens,
Van Dyck, Tiepolo, Watteau,
Goya and Ingres. This is the first
. national tour of the collectioi i con-
tributed by Samuel H. Kress.
Samue! H. Kress started his
�life as a young school teacher.
However, after investing his sav-
ings in properties, he quickly be-
icajne a successful businessman.
IrC1896, Samuel opened the first
SIH. Kress & Co. five-and-dime
store which, by 1906, grossed over
$3million dollars through expan-
sion. Kress, who was now very
rich and successful, began buy-
ing paintings and furnishings
from Italy and having them im-
ported to his New York City
home. After his collection began
to grow, he generously donated
paintings as gifts to museums
throughout the country. In time,
he put most of his collection on
tour throughout the U.S. and per-
sonally made sure it arrived safely
at each stop.
The Depression was a trying
time for everyone, and Samuel
Kress believed that by bringing
these works on tour, he could
provide encouragement for a
more cultured understanding of
art. His belief in the concept of
sharing his collection with the
American public caused him to
become one of the found ing bene-
factors of the new National Gal-
lery of Art in 1939. At the dedica-
tion of this greatmuseum, Samuel
Kress spoke of his works. He
stated that the exhibitions were
formed "to provide for the study
and enjoyment of the public, as a
complete representation as pos-
sible of the Italian School of paint-
ing and sculpture of quality He
said that he "endeavored to ac-
quire the best examples of the
most representative masters of
this important school He would
miss his Italian paintings�the
walls of his home are bare�but
The Assumption of
the Virgin by
Stanzione is just
one of the works
donated by the
Samuel H. Kress
Foundation to be
shown at the NC
Museum of Art
beginning Feb. 5.

Virtual reality offers
brave new world
By Cindy Hawkins
Staff Writer
Jaron Larder, a dread-locked
virtual reality visionary and inno-
vator, could very possibly be de-
scribing the future of virtual reality
when he wonders, "How are you
connected to the world? What if
your eyes were on your fingers?"
Perhaps 10 years into the future,
you will be able to pull out the
trusty datasuit, boot up a virtual
reality program and actually have
the answers to these questions. But
what is this technological entity that
promises to revolutionize the world
as we know it?
Virtual reality's definition is
evasive; it's scope immeasurable.
Essentially, it is a 3-D, computer-

Kareem Richardson had a big second half against U NC-W, scoring nine
of his 11 points in the period. He is seen here against GMU last year.

Senior Staff Writer
In a season that was slowly
looking bleaker each game out, the
Pirates beat the Seahawks 64-61 in
a sold-out Minges Coliseum.
"The Pirates are easily the most
athletic team in the league UNC-
W coach Kevin Eastman said after
the game. "We just don't have the
athletic ability that these guys do,
nor the speed
The Pirates moved their over-
all record to 11-7, and 3-4 in the
conference. The win comes after a
four-game losing skid.
"I thought that this was as
physical a basketball game that I
have seen in my three years here
coach Payne said. "It was a monu-
mental effort. I was really proud of
everybody that played
The Pirates were led by senior
guard Lester Lyons, who had 17
poin ts in the ga me, 13 of those in the
first half. The Seahawks got 22
points from junior guard Chris
Meighen, who had four 3-pointers
in the game.
The first half was plagued by
poor shooting from both teams.
ECU shot just 25 percent from the
field, while the Seahawks shot 39.
Lyons kept the Pirates in the game

The big momentum kick for
ECU was with 10 minutes to play in
the half, Pirate center Chuckie
Robinson drew a technical foul
on Darren Moore. The Pirates
went on an 11-point tear, taking
the lead and never looking back.
They were sparked by a Gill lay-
up and a dunk by Lyons that
brought the Minges crowd to its

best defensive post game since he

intentionally fouled on a lay-up

Stewart. Hunter lay on the floor
for about two minutes before he
was helped off of the court, miss-

Lyons hit a 3-pointer with a

Cowboys' Johnson may
be heading to Florida
(AP) � In the exhilaration of
the moment, the final seconds of a
second straight Super Bowl
championship, Dallas Cowboys
coach Jimmy Johnson and owner
Jerry Jones put aside their differ-
ences and hugged each other
Their caustic relationship is
heading toward a breakup for the
worst of reasons: Their egos are
getting in the way of their success.
They've been sugar-coating the
tension between them for a while
now, pretending in public there is
no serious trouble in private, acting
like a married couple who don't
want everyone to know they're in
the throes of divorce. It's easy to see
through that frosty veneer.
But at the end of the Cowboys'
30-13 victory Sunday over Buffalo,
Johnson and Jones shared one more
triumph that could keep them
together a little longer.
"I don't worry at all that we
will be losing Jimmy Jones said.
"We have a great opportunity to do
something that has never been
done, and that's to win three
straight Super Bowls. 1 know that
Jimmy enjoys the challenges, and 1
know that he will be here
Johnson wasn't so sure. He
hasn't decided on anything, he said,
though he imagined he would
return to Dallas next year. And he
hardly gushed over the hug with
"He owns the team Johnson
said coolly. "He hired me, so he
deserved a hug
No one is sure when the split
will come. Not even Johnson or
Jones. They may gnash their teeth
and stick together for one or two
more runs at the Super Bowl.
Or they could take separate
paths starting tomorrow. Either
way, there's almost no chance
Johnson will stay in Dallas for the
next five years of his 10-year
Johnson's next stop could be
the Miami Dolphins, should Don
Shula retire, or it could be the
expansion Jacksonville Jaguars, if
the right offer is made. Johnson has
never worked anywhere longer
than five vears, and he lusts for new
challenges. His heart is in Miami.
Thirty years ago, Johnson and
Jones were roommates on Arkan-
sas' national championship team,
smart and ambitious buddies
pointed toward great things.
Johnson says he's never met anyone
better at making money than Jones.
Jones says he's never known a
coach who can build a winner like
They seem a perfect match,
riding high after two straight Super
Bowls. But when titanic egos dash
sparks turn to thunderbolts. And if
Jones tries to enforce his threat not
to let Johnson go to another team
under any circumstances, folks
around them would line up for a
ringside seat to see that brawl.
As the rumors swirl that
Johnson wants out, Jones remains
adamant about keeping him on a
tight leash
"There is no equivocation in the
agreement There are no clauses
Jones said. "The only reason Jimmy
won't be coaching football for the
Dallas Cowboys is that he's out of
coaching in football, period. At any
level. There are no circumstances
that I would agree to let another
team talk to him about coaching
Lady hoopsters blown out by Dukes
(SID) � Four James Madison
players scored in double figures as
JMU captured its fourth Colonial
Athletic Association win with a
79-55 road victory over East Caro-
lina in Greenville on Sunday.
Led by Krissy Heinbaugh,
who scored a game-high 19 points,
the Dukes controlled the game
from the start.
After scoring first with two
Heinbaugh free throws at 18:46,
and then taking the lead with a 17-
foot jumper by Danielle Powell at
18:06, JMU never looked back and
led 39-20 at the half. Heinbaugh
led the way with 10 points in the
first half.
ECU struggled, shooting 29.6
percent horn the floor and just 50
percent from the line during the
first half and dropping to 25 per-
cent from the floor in the second
James Madison shot 51.7 per-
cent horn the floor for the game
and 73.7 percent from the line.
JMU also controlled the
boards, out-rebounding the Lady
Pirates 27-10 in the first half and
allowing ECU only four offensive
rebounds. For the game, the Dukes
had 54 rebounds to ECU's 33.
JMU's Sarah Schrieb led all
reboundcrs with 10.
During the second half, JMU
extended its lead to as much as 31
points with four minutes remain-
ing. A layup by Heinbaugh at the
4:05 mark gave JMU its largest
lead of the game (72-41). Kara
Ratliff (17 points), Schreib (12
points) and Powell (11 points)
joined Heinbaugh in scoring
double figures for JMU.
ECU placed just one player in
double figures with Tomekia
Blackmon scoring 12 points. Shay
Hayes led ECU's rebounding ef-
fort with seven.
With the win, the Dukes went
to 10-8 on the season and 4-2 in
CAA plav. East Carolina, with its
fifth straight loss, dropped to 2-13
on the season and 1-5 in the CAA.
Both teams return to action on
Thursday, Feb. 3 with East Caro-
lina hosting UNC-Wilmington and
JMU hosting Richmond.

(AP)�The University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill has reaf-
firmed its love affair with basket-
ball coach Dean Smith.
The UNC board of trustees
amended Smith's contract Friday
to allow him to lead the team into
the 21st century.
The contract revision calls for
Smith to remain as head coach
through June 30,2001. Smith, who
was named head coach at the start
of the 1961-1962 season, will be 70
in 2001.
"You (media)guysdidn't think
we were going to let that guy get
away, did you?" board member
John Harris said after the meeting.
Smith said he considered the
revised contract as a clarification,
rather than an extension.
Smith signed a contract in 1981
to remain head coach until June 30,
1996, at which time he would be
allowed to serve in another posi-
tion at the school until June 30,
2001. Smith said he understood that
the original contract was meant to
run through 2001. One page had
that date, while another page had a
conflicting date of 1996, he said.
Smith said he first noticed the
error in the mid-1980s, but did not
act. UNC athletic director John
Swofford noticed the conflict last
summer and asked the board to
amend the contract to run through
2001, Smith said.
"Thatdoesn't mean I will coach
until then said Smith, who has the
option to terminate the contract at
any time with 120 days' notice.

State prosecutor
probes skier's death
(AP) � Was Ulrike Maier's
death on the Garmisch ski slope
simply a tragic accident that could
have happened anywhere?
Or is her policeman boy-
friend entitled to sue the race or-
ganizers because the course was
too dangerous?
Opinion appearsdivided fol-
lowing Saturday's accident that
stunned the world of skiing only
two weeks before the Winter
Olympics are due to start.
Maier, 26, the mother of a 4-
year-old girl, broke her neck in a
terrifying crash in Saturday's
downhill race and died 2 12
hours later.
The state prosecutor opened
a routine probe Sunday into
Maier's death and examined the
scene of the crash. It's believed
Maier, a two-time world cham-
pion, slid off line and collided
with a timing post, causing her
helmet to come off.
Helmut Schweighofer,
Maier's boyfriend and the father
of Melanie, also visited the spot
and broke into tears.
He strongly criticized FIS, the
international ski federation, and
World Cup officials for what he
said were insufficient safety mea-
sures and indicated the family is
planning to sue for damages
It won't bring Ulli back, but
I intend to fight FIS he said. "It
may save another life.
"They only talk about im-
proving safety, but they never do
anything. I can't understand that
the timing post was padded only
with straw.
"Somebody will die again
next year unless they really do
something he said.
Other competitors, including
American skier Krista
Schmidinger, criticized the track.
"It was like sheer ice, like
trying to survive your way
down she said. "The conditions
on the hill were poor. It was a
really inconsistent track, a sheet
of ice in some sections and soft in
others. The whole race was very
