College Democrats spend Saturday in jail
By Jon Cawley
Staff Writer
Across the Tar River on the
outskirts of Greenville lies an
ominous, grey complex. Sheriff
Billy Vandiford plans for it to be
a money-maker. Vandiford and
jail administrator Jim Hudson
were host Saturday to the ECU
College Democrats for a tour of
the city's new jail.
Greenville's 96,000 square
foot holding facility has been lo-
cated on Detention Center Drive
for seven months. The jail has a
capacity to house 308, but holds
215 prisoner at present time,
including 192 men and 23
women comprising the 70 per-
cent black, 2.5 percent white and
5 percent hispanic inmate popu-
lation, Hudson said.
The jail holds inmates
charged with everything from
DWI to first degree murder,
Hudson said. No one under 16 is
held unless they are going to be
tried as an adult and there is a
superior court order, in which
case they must be held separate
from the other prisoners.
The $10.5 million facility's
biggest cost comes from the 96
people it employs. Sixteen to 18
officers work each shift with 35
officers responsible for the seven
control centers. Hudson said
that for this reason, they are try-
ing to make the jail self-support-
ive.
"We're trying in some way
to maybe expand the jail so it
can be a separate portion, "
Hudson said. "Maybe the jail
can pay for its own way to re-
lieve some of the burden off the
county commissioners who are
trying to find money to fund the
jail Hudson continued that, in
the next two and a half years, the
building will be paid for if every
dime goes to pay.
In order to make the jail
self-supportive, various pay-for-
service policies are being insti-
tuted. One such project is a pay-
for-use plan for inmate telephone
calls. Every time an inmate calls
out, it is a collect call that costs
the recipient 95 cents per minute,
Hudson said. Sheriff Vandiford
added that a deal with Carolina
Telephone allows the jaii to re-
ceive 30 cents for every call and
28 cents for every long-distance
call.
In another money-making
plan, the jail charges inmates,
using a debit system for every
non-emergency medical consul-
tation. If for example, an inmate
has an ingrown toenail and
wants it removed, it will cost
them $10, Hudson said. If the
inmate has no credit, the proce-
dure can still be done and cred-
ited to the inmate's account;
however, if the inmate comes
back to the jail and has money,
"We are going to get our $10
Hudson said.
Following the implemen-
tation of the plan, sick requests
dropped from 649 to 125 in No-
vember, Hudson said. He em-
phasized that, "nobody in this
jail doesn't get adequate medi-
cal care. If a man is sick he's
going to see a medical person
The jail's kitchen can feed
600 people, possibly opening the
door for yet another money mak-
ing project. Vandiford said the
jail paid $1.95 per person for
food. Now they are paying $1.31
and will be trucking food out to
other local facilities reducing
prices from $2.31 and in some
cases to $1.31.
Vandiford is presently ne-
gotiating a deal with the state to
house some of their prisoners in
the jail. A $970,000 gymnasium
was built in the facility; how-
ever, it has never been used,
Hudson said. If sold, the gym-
nasium will be remodeled to
house federal prisoners. Right
now the state would pay $50 a
day, but he is hoping to negoti-
ate to $58 a day, Vandiford said.
Vandiford and Hudson
run a tight operation with strict
rules of conduct. There are no
televisions in the jail and smok-
ing is not allowed. "If you don't
like it, stay out of jail Hudson
said. This is largely not a prob-
lem since the jail's inmates spend
180 days or less in the jail
mainly awaiting trial, Hudson
said.
Inmates in the jail are not
allowed to have money, so a
canteen operates on a debit
system, Hudson said. Officers
are sure to prevent contraband
from entering the center.
Upon entering the jail, in-
mates are searched. "We take
everything from them but their
smiles Hudson said. He
added that "if contraband
comes in you can pretty much
figure a guard brought it in
because we are so strict
There have also been
some minor changes to make
the jail more secure. "It wasn't
too hard at one time to escape
Hudson said. He attributed

Couple helps local kids
By Stephanie Lassiter
Staff Writer
With as many as 10 mil-
lion latchkey children in
America alone, there is a high
need for some type of after
school supervision. These chil-
dren, known for the key worn
around their necks, are found
in every city in every state.
Renee Arrington and her
husband Marvin had seen
enough of these children roam-
ing Fifth Street in the after-
noons. What started as a hand-
ful of students stopping in their
store after school has turned into
a regular program known as the
Little Willie Center.
Thanks to a Venture Grant
from the United Way, the
Arringtons were able to con-
vert their operations to a house
located at 807 West Fifth Street.
The doors opened in May 1992.
The center currently pro-
vides "free" care for 48 children
five days a week. But, the "free"
care does have some stipula-
tions for the parents.
"If the parents could
have afforded day care, the chil-
dren would not have been left
alone Renee Arrington
said.
The parents of these
children are required to sign
a volunteer commitment of
one day a week. Addition-
ally, they must take part in
the Parents in Training
program(PIT). The PIT pro-
gram offers on-site job train-
ing such as filing, serving
and tutoring. This gives the
parents some job experience.
"This is a way for the
parents to bond with their

No nerds here!
By Jason Williams
Assistant News Editor
Honors students at ECU do
not necessarily fit the stereotype
of nerds and geeks who study all
the time. Director Dr. David Sand-
ers profiles honors students as
quite the opposite of such stereo-
types.
The Honors Program is open
to first-year students who scored
1200 or better on the SAT and had
a 3.5 or better GP A in high school.
Students who earn a 3.4 or better
GPA at ECU are also eligible for
honors courses.
"The Honors Program is
intended to benefit bright stu-
dents, students who would ben-
efit from small classes, personal
attention and more challenging
courses and who are good stu-
dents he said.
"It is more precisely de-
signed for students who took AP
classes in high school orGTclasses
in high school Sanders said.
"As long as they maintain a 3.4 or
something close to it, they can
continue to take honors classes
Sanders said honors stu-
dents must take 24 hours of hon-
ors courses to complete the pro-
gram. Graduates of the program
are recognized a t commencement
as well as on their transcript for
their achievement.
Currently there are about
600 students registered in the hon-
ors program. Thirty seniors will
graduate from the program in
May. Sanders said that not as
many people graduate from the
program as enroll in it because
many do not complete 24 hours.
One appeal of the honors
courses is their small class size.
"We try to limit them to around
20, the average is about 17 Sand-
ers said.
"There are basically two
types of courses: honors seminars,
which are topics suggested by the
faculty or students to be taught on
a one-term basis; and honors sec-
tions, which are regular courses
taught by honors faculty.
"All of them expect students
to make A's or B's. We tell stu-
dents that they should make in
honors courses what they make
in regular classes Sanders said.
"They are not intended to lower a
student's grade, or else they
wouldn't take the courses
Sanders said that the honors
program now offers classes in al-
most every school. Not all depart-
ments have honors classes every
semester, however. This semes-
ter, the School of Technology and
the Department of Accounting are
offering honors sections for the
first time.
This year Sanders is submit-
ting a proposal that would make
the honors program four years.
Currently most honors courses are
1000- or 2000-level and are de-
signed to fulfill general education
requirements.
"There have always been
departments where students
could take upper level honors
courses or do things for honors
credit Sanders said. "What we
are proposing is that this be avail-
able across the board,
"It would be called senior
honors, or senior thesis. Most de-
partments would have students
do three hours of research and
three hours of thesis
The new program would
also allow students in such ma-
jors as creative writing, art or

Motorcyclists taught safety measures
By Jeb Brookshire
Staff Writer
The North Carolina Mo-
torcycle Safety Education Pro-
gram is still in its first year of
permanent status and it is striv-
ing to make all riders safer and
more alert when on the road.
The program got off the
ground in August of 1989. It
operated on a temporary basis
until July 14, 1993, when it be-
came a permanent state pro-
gram. The program operates at
14 sites through community
colleges and is headquartered
here at ECU.
"The main emphasis is to
teach safety, and to teach riders
the skills they need to save their
life said Motorcycle Safety
Communication Specialist Bob
Brown. "I rode for over 20 years
before I took the course, and I
learned a lot
The program offers three
courses. The first course is the
motorcycle rider course, which
teaches basic riding skills and
street skills to new riders. The
second course is the experienced
rider course, which reinforces
skills learned in the first course.
The program also offers a course
for instructors.
The skills taught are in ar-
eas found to cause the most
number of motorcycle acci-
dents.
Three dollars of every mo-
torcycle registration goes to this
program, so it is funded by mo-
torcyclists. The motorcycles are
special training models pro-
vided by Honda on an extended
loan.
"We really couldn't oper-
ate without the help of the deal-
ers that provide the bikes
Brown said.
Interested riders need only-
pay between $35 and $50 and
attend the course; the bikes are
already provided.
However, proper clothing
is required in order to partici-
pate. Riders must wear over-
the-ankle footwear, long pants,
a long-sleeved shirt or jacket,
full fingered gloves and protec-
tive eye wear. Helmets are pro-
vided by the program.
The program works
closely with the Governor's
Highway Safety Council and is
responsible for several motor-
cycle safety campaigns. Last
year the "Find the Motorcyclist"
campaign stressed the cyclist's
vulnerability on the road to
the four-wheel drivers. This
year the program is starting a
campaign on wearing proper
riding gear called "Save Your
Hide in a Slide � Wear It
This campaign will be very
active during the warmer
months when riders often do
not dress appropriately and
often end up dehydrating
while riding.
The program also works
closely with the Department
of Motor Vehicles to establish
a permit system for motorcy-
clists and to increase the sen-
sitivity of the sensors at inter-
sections.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP)
� They were freshmen when
five fellow students were slain
3 12 years ago. They are now
seniors, anticipating Tuesday's
start of the murder trial for
Danny Harold Rolling.
The memories of fear and
panic are still strong.
Karen Whitney, 23, now a
senior in wildlife ecology at the
University of Florida, recalls
the terror of huddling with
friends at night. She disre-
garded her parents' entreaties
to return home, but "I was
freaking out she said.
Many of her friends fled
the campus, and some never
came back. Whitney and many
others are ready for Rolling to
finallv have his day in court.
The trial is expected to last
six to 10 weeks. Selection of 12
jurors and four alternates from
among 1,500 people summoned
begins Tuesday.
State Attorney Rod Smith
and a team of prosecutors will
try to prove that Rolling, a 39-
year-old drifter from Shreve-
port, La was Gainesville's se-
rial killer of 1990.
He faces five murder
counts, three of sexual battery
and three of armed burglary. If
convicted, he would be sen-
tenced to life in prison or death
in Florida s electric chair. He
already is serving life terms for
other crimes.

February 15. 1994
Although guns are silent, tensions remain
Sure he's a snake, but does he meet his deadlines?
While it's true that journalists occasionally have been accused
of being reptiles, it's not often that they get much media attention just
for hanging out with them. A Colombian boa constrictor named Van
Gogh recently was on the lam for three weeks in the University of
Florida's College of Journalism and Communications after he es-
caped his owner's clutches at the college's WUFT television studios.
Van Gogh's three-week slither came to an end in mid-January when
the boa was discovered in the studio's master control room, not far
from where he made his break in Weimer Hall, the Independent
Florida Alligator reported. The snake's owner spotted a cable that
looked likea snakeskin, which isexactly what it turned out to be. The
elusive snake was huddled in a two-inch space above the transmitter.
Not everyone in the College of Journalism and Communications was
happy to see Van Gogh depart. Telecommunications Chair Gerald
Smeyak said he was dejected about the snake's exit because it meant
the end of Dean Ralph Lowenstein's periodic snake updates. Re-
peated attempts by a pest-control SWAT team from the Physical
Plant failed to corral the escaped reptile.
Hate speech code deep-sixed at Penn
No disciplinary action should be taken against a University of
Pennsylvania student who utters a racist, sexist or other politically
incorrect comment unless it is accompanied by a physical threat, a
committee has recommended. The university decided Nov. 15,1993
to suspend enforcement of its existing hate speech code and replace
it by the end of the year by some kind of student mediation. Penn
became embroiled in a divisive debate about free speech last year
after a white male student called black women students "water
buffaloes" because they were making too much noise late one night
near his dormitory room. The student denied that he intended the
comment as a racial remark, but the women brought racial harass-
ment charges against him under the university's speech code. The
charges were later dropped, but not before the university became the
focus of a national debate on political correctness and how far
campuses could go to protect students from harassment while pro-
tecting their rights to free speech. A campus committee made up of
faculty and staff have proposed that speech that doesn't contain a
physical threat should not be subject to disciplinary action. Other
proposals include assigning housing to first-year students to insure
that "self-segregation" does not occur and hiring an ombudsman for
the student newspaper, The Daily Pcnnsylvanian, to handle com-
plaints. Nearly an entire press run of the paper was confiscated and
trashed last year by students who said they were protesting racism.

Blast of cold weather cuts power lines
this mostly to poor supervision
on the employees part as well as
the building itself. A prisoner
was able to escape on one occa-
sion using the metal end of a
pencil eraser to melt a plexiglass
window, Hudson said.
The jail itself has some sur-
prising features. High tech equip-
ment is used throughout the cen-
ter. A camcorder takes all mug
shots so images can be inhanced
on computer similar to the one
used for fingerprinting, said Of-
ficer J.L. Harris. The jail also uses
seven computerized control cen-
ters that monitor and control all
door locks and security features,
Hudson said.
Another surprising aspect
of the new jail is the cleanliness.
This is surprising because not
only were offices, lobbies and
other highly visible areas clean,
but the inmates holding areas
were relatively clean also.
Hudson feels "we've got some-
thing to be proud of, so let's keep
it that way
An unsurprising aspect of

the jail is its food. During the tour
lunch was served and Vandiford,
Hudson and the College Demo-
crats ate together in a meeting
room. There is no cafeteria; the

up of mostly lettuce, a soggy
Sloppy Joe and equally soggy
french fries.

from maximum security to mini-
mum security, exposing the tour
group to a wide range of inmates.
Blue did feel that the jail
was doing a great job. Blue was
impressed that before inmates can
use any of the jails extras, includ-
ing the canteen, the prisoners
must complete a literacy and drug
abuse program. Blue also said he

struggled to restore power today to
more than half a million people left
in the dark when inches-thick lay-
ers of ice brought electric lines crash-
ing down from Mississippi to Mary-
land.
Last week's freezing rain
coated roads and trees from the
southern Plains to the East Coast
with ice, then dumped heavy snow
in northern states.
The 12th storm of the season
in the Northeast led to dozens of
accidents Sunday, including a 20-
carpileup in Massachusetts in which
no one was seriously injured.
The powerless could take
heart from Monday's forecast: For
the first rime in weeks, no more
heavy snow was expected in the
near future, and temperatures Mon-
day were forecast to rise into the 40s
as far south as Maryland and Vir-
ginia.

kept melting snow from flowing

ard so the number was reduced.
The center has been able to
operate with the help of fund-
ing from various organizations
such as Nations Bank, Clark
Branch Realty, Wachovia, BB&T,
and the ECU Medical School. A
great donation of time has been
provided by the ECU Volunteer
program directed by Judy Baker.
When the doors of the cen-
ter first opened in '92, Arrington
received 33 volunteers.
"Without those 33 stu-
dents, I don't know how we
would have made it Arrington
said.
Each day a group of vol-
unteers help in tutoring, baking
cookies, and playing with and
supervising the youngsters. A
normal day sees six volunteers.
Occasionally, volunteers are
needed to supervise field trips
on Saturdays.
"I have no trouble finding
volunteers to send to the Little
Willie Center Judy Baker said.
Baker attributed some of
the center's success with volun-
teers to its proximity to campus
as well as the response the vol-
unteers get from both the
Arringtons and the children.
"The volunteers come back
knowing that they have been
appreciated Baker said.
The Little Willie Center has
been such a phenomenal suc-
cess with the volunteers that
Judy Baker has just assigned a
new group to help with volun-
teering.
Dr. Alice Arnold, a profes-
sor in the art department and
life-long volunteer, imple-
mented a program where her
art students would be given
practicum credit to teach art les-
sons to students from the Little
Willie Center.
"It is people like Dr.
Arnold who can make a differ-
ence in these children's lives
Arrington said.
Every Tuesday, from 4-5
p.m five children from the cen-
ter and 15 children from around
the community are bused to the
Jenkins Art Building for art les-
sons. Last week the children
were taught about pressing, us-
ing Styrofoam cut-outs and
paint. Each of the three art stu-
dents alternate weeks to teach
the lesson.
"It is important for children
from the entire community to be
brought into the School of Art
for an opportunity that may not
be available in many public
schools Arnold said.
The children are trans-
ported to the art building by a
member of Arnold's church, the
Universal Unitarian Church.
"Judy Baker gave me the
inspiration to develop my own
outreach program with the Little
Willie Center Arnold said.
Arnold's volunteer expe-
rience first began while she was
a graduate student at the Uni-
versity of Illinois. It continued
through her time as a doctoral
candidate. She taught swim-
ming lessons to children at the
YMCAYWCA.
"Derek Bok former Presi-
dent of Harvard University
says in Universities and the Fu-
ture of America that it is abso-
lutely essential that students are
provided service opportunities
in the community that will mir-
ror the kinds of responsibilities
they will have in the world of
work Arnold said.
While Arnold will not re-
quire her students to be volun-
teers, she will recommend it.
Baker, who teaches Health 1000
courses as well as upper level
health courses, also encourages
her students to become life-long
volunteers, yet she does not re-
quire it.
"The experience is recip-
rocal Baker said.
As for the Little Willie Cen-
ter, Arrington says that without
the help of Baker's program, the
center would probably not be
able to remain open.
"Judy has been a ram in
the bush to this center
Arrington said. "She has been a
light in the darkness. A lot of
times there is no hope in this
society, but a ray of light can
lead you to find hope.
"We pray that the program
continues to exist, because in
my opinion, it is a major pro-
vider of volunteers in the city"
Students or groups inter-
ested in volunteering for any of
the Volunteer Program's 46
agencies can contact Judy Baker
by phone at 757-6432 (she has
24-hour phone mail) or stop by
her office at 201 Christenbury

It's so comforting to witness the legal sys-
tem chock-full df sliminess and Tonya Harding
allowed to skate at the Olympics.
Actually, it's nice to see that capitalism is
still alive and well in the United States. What a
greedy little country we are, salivating over our
Ixttotidcets,newshungryformenewestHarding
scoop and poised and waiting for the special
Hard Copy episode. It's all a part of the American
Dream, though, and dammit, shouldn't we wal-
low in it?
The crime in this is not the soap opera-like
frenzy that most of the country seems to be in or
even the multi-million dollar deals being made,
but the tarnished ideal that was the Olympics.
True, the Olympics may have held more appeal
for an 10-year-old girl as she trekked up and
down the Lake Placid luge run two years after
the 1980 Winter Olympics, but now it's close to
15 years later and this writer (the same little girl,
now grown up) is hardly proud to send Tonya
Harding to represent her country.
The fact is, Harding has admitted to know-
ing about plans that led up to the attack on Nancy
Kerrigan and withheld that information from
the police for a full week. Tonya Harding ca-
vorted with people who were plotting assualt
rud battery, kept it a secret and played innocent,
$efore finally confessing her involvement when
the FBI questioning became intense. She is an
accessory to the crime that could have ended
Kerrigan's career andor crippled her.
And all because she didn't have what it
takes to win a medal. This is the girl we honor by
sending her to the Olympics, a festival that used
to celebrate athleticism and a little something
called sportsmanship.
Because she is a monetary commodity, the
U. S. Olympic Committee has caved in like the
cowards they are. With dollar signs in their eyes,
and gold and silver medals to add to their collec-
tion, they gave this skater the opportunity that so
many top-notch athletes crave. The dream of thou-
sands who dedicate most of their young lives
training in a sport that primarily doesn't go on to
professional levels. Th Olympics is it. The final
test. The great goal.
And now, as if skating in the Olympics isn't
enough, an added stress has been tacked on to
both Harding and Kerrigan in the form of practice
schedules and living arrangements. The two are
living in the same two-story building in the athlete
village (though on separate floors and at opposite
ends) and have declined the option of skating at an
alternate rink in nearby Oslo.
Aside from obvious ice covering the rink,
cold shoulders are sure to be rather prevalent as
the two practice in the coming days. Tricky is the
fine art of avoidance as someone flies out of iheir
triple-loop and attempts to land clear of any other
practicing skaters � right-of-way is a practice-
skating courtesy, but near-collisions are not un-
usual. However, it could prove to be difficult to
spot a landing and ignore the competitor that may
or may not have hired someone to debilitate you.
It is not a question of whether she is guilty of
a crime and should go to jail. Rather, it is whether
her behavior, at least what we've been shewn,
should disqualify her from the privilege of being
on the U.S. Olympic team. Obviously the Olympic
Committee didn't think so. The little 10-year-old
with stars in her eyes feels differently.

Technology over-steps social
The advanced technology
that seems to be ever growing
has not just made the computer
a way of life. For many, it is life.
Americans have become not
only "hooked in but "hooked
on" all the information, services
and new areas of personal de-
velopment they can receive from
systems such as Prodigy,
America Online, Internet and
the Imagination Network.
Twenty to 30 perctnt of
American families now have at
least one computer at home, and
schools are excitedly pushing
our students to become com-
puter literate before they are
literate. As Americans jump
with leaps and bounds toward
a more lechnogically advanced,
computer-based society, we are
over-stepping the social rami-
fications imposed by this move-
ment.
For example, the percent-
age of American families own-
ing a computer is undoubtedly
made up of those middle and
upper-middle class families who
can afford one. Consequently,
this unequal distribution only
serves to reinforce the gap be-
tween affluent and poorer com-
munities.
Second, Sue Bredekamp,
director of professional devel-
opment at the National Asso-
ciation for the Education of
Young Children in Washington
says that for young children,
"computers are really a social
activity. Children will interact
in pairs, even in threes and
fours This may be so in a very
controlled environment, but you
put three or four kids around a
computer during free time at
school and the social activities
that really exist are "Hey, gimme
that mouse or, "That's wrong,
you dummy and "C'mon, it's
my turn
Furthermore, as a future
English teacher, I shudder at the
thought that there will come a
day when we shower with praise

ing and writing below grade
level, yet who is a computer

ramifications
whiz. And unfortunately,
some teachers will spend more
time with this child because it
is more socially beneficial, and
entertaining, than spending
time with a remedial reader.
Other proponents would
argue that people of all ages
are zombies in front of a tele-
vision set, but the computer
engages them. Oh, yeah? En-
gages them in what? Since
computer games are number
one in software sales, succeed-
ing in getting a little hedge-
hog to chase after a bunch of
golden rings while dodging
daggers, fireballs and deadly
monsters, obviously must be
fundamental preparation for
real life. At least television of-
fers a variety of opinions out-
side a win or lose, live or die
environment.
So, clean up your house,
do your dishes, wash your
stinkin' laundry and get a real
life. It's too short to spend in
front of a 12-inch screen of any
kind.

Liberal media biased against conservatism
vt
To even ask the question of
whether the media are biased pre-
supposes that the question is open
to doubt Anyone who has not
been completely coopted by liber-
alism realized a long time ago that
the national and most local news

country are bi-

Some groups, such as blacks, have
some legitimate gripes. About the
only way a black person will ever
appear in the news is if he is ar-
rested or excels at a sport. I have no
idea how homosexuals think that
they are poorly portrayed. Noother
identifiable group in the past year
received fheoverwhelrningly posi-
tive coverage that they did, from

A
friend and I
were recently
discussing
those commercials about abortion
by the Arthur S. DeMoss Founda-
tion, which have the tag line "Life.
What a beautiful choice He com-
plained that while those commer-
cials were good,itwas impossible to
make similar commercials for the
pro-choice side. The pro-choice side
does not need to. The news does the
job for them everytime it covers the
issue. Pro-choice supporters are de-
picted as intelligent, articulate, rea-
sonable people. Pro-lifers are por-
trayed as fanatical protesters, who
are trying to control women and
prevent them from exercising their
rights.
This can also be seen in the
labels it applies to people and move-
ments. Those who support keeping

The press also uses the term
"conservative" as a pejorative. One
would think from press reports that
Jesse Helms' first name was either
" Archconservative" or "Ultraconser-
vative Is there anyone who is simi-
larly called "Archliberal" or
"Ultraliberal?"Orevenjust "liberal?"
No, liberals are just left with their
given name. Anotherexampleof this
phenomenon was in the 1988 presi-
dential election. At the Democratic
convention, the harshest adjective
used to describe anyone was "lib-
eral" or "progressive At the Re-
publican convention, however, re-
porters used the terms "hard-right

wing and, my favorite, "the con-

an odor, I wonder, did the Clintons
have to have the White House fumi-
gated before they moved in?
According to Robert Lichter of
the Center for Media and Public Af-
fairs, during the '92 primaries 46
percent of the coverage of Demo-
crats was positive; only 22 percent of
Bush'swas. Pat Buchannan received
35 percent positive coverage. After
the end of the primaries, 56 percent
of the coverage of the Clinton Gore
ticket was positive; 71 percent of the
BushQuayle coverage was nega-
tive.
There is no vast conspiracy at
work here. Reporting just attracts
persons of a liberal bent � people
who want to change the world �
like many other professions (such as
social work). What is really galling
is their repeated protestationsof fair-
ness, though this is bearable be-
cause the prejudice is so transparent.
Where the media really fail is in the
choiceof what tocover. They should
stop wasting their energy and our
time with trivia like the Tonya
Harding "story and just give us the
unvarnished facts.
Stop trying tobeour source for
solutions. Tell us whatishappening,
and let us make our own decisions.
To the Editor:
My purpose in writing this letter is to get some
answers from administrators on this campus as to
why situations have progressively gotten worse.
On January 10th, I stood in line with hundreds of
students at the cashiers office. With over 18,000 stu-
dents enrolled here, why has this been a continual
problem? The campus police lets in 5 students at a
time when the weather was below freezing! Then,
some students were given "special permission" to
walk in ahead of those like me who had been in line for
two hours!
On January 31st, I made an appointment at the
Student Health Center. I arrived 10 minutes earlier. I
was told to wait upstairs. After several nurses noticed
I had been there for a while, they looked for my folder
to see what had happened. The nurse that saw me at
11:00 was gone to lunch, so after 45 minutesof waiting,
I was seen by a doctor. I went downstairs to fill my
prescription at 11:55 and the cashier and pharmacy
were closing their offices for lunch. I asked if they
could fill my prescription because I was sick and I
didn' t want to comeback out in the cold, the answer,
"We have to go to lunch now so we can get back in
time Soat 1 pm on the dot I was back at the cashiers
office. The cashier wasn't back, I explained to the
pharmacy I was really sick and could they help me.
By the time I got my prescription, Donna Joyner told
me in the future I could take my prescription to a
drug store if they were closed! Hello! I pay fees for
these services and why is no one there to help me.
Why doesn't someone fill in from 12-1:00� with
18,000 students enrolled at ECU.
So, how about those of you getting paid sala-
ries to " trouble shoot" let the students of ECU know
what plans are being implemented to deal with
these problems and others. Maybe look at how
other colleges operate successfully?!? Hey that's an
idea.

To the Editor:
Both Mr. Tyndall and Mr. Joyner in their Feb. 8
letters conveniently forgot to mention that they are
executiveofficers in theECUCollege Republicans. Mem-
bers of the G.O.P. are again distorting the truth.
Mr. Blue in his Feb. 3 article never labeled Mr. Jones
as a "liberal Mr. Blue was simply stating facts from Mr.
Jones' questionable voting record. While Mr. Blue stated
facts, Mr. Joyner and Mr. Tyndall slung mud at Mr. Blue
and attempted to destroy his reputation.
Obviously the College Republicans again have
beenbrainwashedbytheCongressionalClub.Thisdazed
and confused group apparently has no solid idea of
where their candidate stands on the issues or who he
really represents. First of all Mr. Jones was a long time
Democrat who on the spur of the moment changed his
mind and switched over to the Republican Party.
Second he was a Southern Baptist who on a whim
converted to Catholicism. Last of all Mr. Jones voted
for the districts but now is against them.
It isblatantly apparent that Mr. Jones has no firm
stand onany issues. He also seems not to have any firm
beliefs on morality. Mr. Blue may not know how to
identify a liberal, but he sure nows how to identify a
political opportunist and fence strattler.
Maybe one day Mr. Joyner and Mr. Tyndall will
learn what the issues are. Hopefully they will stop
trying to destroy the credibility of someone who truly
knows the issues and where the candidates stand.

To the Editor:
This letter is in response to "Valentine's Day: It's
full of be-headed goodness Obviously the author is not
a Christian or he wouldn't have degraded Easter so. Did
he not think to ask someone about the holiday before
printing that ghastly assumption? 1 pride myself on
being a Christian and found the statement made, very
insulting.
I consider Easter a very sound and true holiday
along with many other believers in this world. It is not
just someone or an average Joe � it's Jesus Christ! He
died to save everyone else from perishing in Hell as a
result of their sins! He even saved you. The son of God,
not the guy next door! I think that makes him slightly
more important if not moreso. Lastly, of all the dumb
mistakes is the statement that Easter celebrates His
death. Hello! Christians would never celebrate the
death of Jesus. Everyone should know that Good
Friday is when He died and that He came back to life
on Easter. Duh, like doesn't that make more sense?
Maybe next time that kind of remark won't just
slip by and get published without a second thought.
Maybe next time the writer won't write something
without checking to see if it's true first. Thank you for
listening; I had to defend my beliefs.

The Sarasota Ballet will be
performing in Wright Audito-
rium on Feb. 19 at 8 p.m The
dance troupe is from Sarasota,
Fla and is a mixture of classical
and contemporary ballet. The
troupe is a relatively new one,
operating under the influence of
Canadian Eddie Toussaint.
Toussaint, a reputableand in-
ternationally-recognized chore-
ographer, founded and directed
the ballet, Eddie Toussaint de
t lontreal. In 1990, he moved to
Sarasota and brought with him
10 of his dancers and much of the
repertoire on which his reputa-
tion is based. With the core of the
troupe established, he added
some talented American artists
and began to tour internation-
ally
The Sarasota Ballet, only in
its fourth season, performs tradi-
tional ballet from the waist down,
and contempora rv ballet from the
waist up. This interesting combi-
nation, coupled with Toussaint's
choreography, provides an ex-
traordinary staje presentation.

Gospel choir rocks
By Cedric Van Buren
Staff Writer
This past weekend, ECU
was a college immersed in a LI the
hustle and bustle of a major me-
tropolis. On Friday, many stu-
dents participated in the annual
Mardi Gras festivities in
Mendenhall Student Center.
Still, others braved the weather
on Saturday to go witness a joy-
- ful explosion of gospel music.
The event was held in Wright
Auditorium where many went
to enjoy the angelic voices that
took part in the ECU Gospel
Choir's 11th .Anniversary Cel-
ebration.
Seven different choirs took
the stage and sang with such
power, it almost blew the roof
off the building. The different
styles and backgrounds of gos-
pel music were represented by
different schools from the state,
such as ECU, University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
University of North Carolina at
Charlotte, Fayetteville State,
Barton College, Tarboro High
School, Roanoke Rapids High
School and the Teen Voices at
Cornerstone Baptist Church.
Each took turns at entertaining
the crowd of some 700 plus.
People were still packing it in
until late in the evening.
Saturday night might have
been full of the gospel music of
many choirs, but the main focus
was on the ECU Gospel Choir.
This choir started out in 1978 as
the ECU Gospel Ensemble. As
the ensemble's reputation grew,
so did its membership. When the
membership grew to 45, they
changed the name to the ECU
Gospel Choir. The ECU Gospel
Choir has a home-away-from-
home- type atmosphere. As
Choir Director Greg Horton
states, "the purpose of the ECU
Gospel Choir is to allow the mi-
nority students of East Carolina
University, who come from all
different cultural backgrounds,
the chance to express themsel ves
in song. The reason why we sing
gospel music is because for many
of us, this is the root background
of our culture
The ECU Gospel Choir is a
collection of 105 rather unique
voices. Whenever you have time,
take a look and listen at some of
the most beautiful voices on cam-
pus. The object of the choir is not
to preach, but instead to sing
songs of joy and praise.

Gospel Choir
was one of the
many
performers at

Auditorium

Celebration.

Dave Matthews lifts spirits
By Steve Griffin
Staff Writer
The Dave Matthews band
is a group that has made it big in
the music industry this past year
and showed off their talents Tues-
day night at the Attic. This band
has been noted to lift spirits in
crowds with their unique music,
and this happiness could be seen
spreading throughout the Attic.
The wide variety of music�any-
thing from folk music to jazz�
amazes crowds.
The band has had a busy
past year playing in the well
known HORDE Festival with
bands like Blues Traveller and
Widespread Panic. They released
their debut album Remember Two
Tiling in November 1993 and re-
cently made a deal with RCA.
They will start recording their
new RCA album in May and June.
All of these events have increased

With the release of Remember Two Things, the Dave Matthews Band
appears to be on the verge of becoming the next 'bg thing
popularity for the Dave
Matthews Band, which showed
here in Greenville with a sell out
show.
Every member of the
band is talented in their own way.

Black
Thespians
pay homage
By Laura Jackman
Staff Writer
In recognition of Black His-
tory Month, the Black Thespi-
ans of ECU will perform a pro-
duction that will pay homage to
the history of African-Ameri-
cans.
Curtains go up for the sec-
ond annual "Black Voices from
the Past" at 8 p.m Wed Feb.
16.
The play traces the major
periods and lives of those who
have helped to shape black his-
tory, from the great African
empires to theongoing struggles
for equality. The program con-
sists of students portraying key,
black figures of different time
periods, traditional African-
American dance, spirituals and
poetry. The show provides a
brief synopsis of what blacks
have done for the world.
Black Thespians of ECU
began as an idea of English pro-
fessor Reginald Watson in Feb-
ruary of 1993. Watson wrote the
play in order to "educate the
student body about black his-
tory
The p roduction will be held
in room 244 in Mendenhall Stu-
dent Union, and there is a $2
charge at the door. Proceeds go
to benefit the Ledonia S. Wright
Scholarship Fund.
The scholarship was estab-
lished in 1984 by friends and
coUeaguesof Mrs. Wrightand is
given annually to deserving
blacksrudentswhoattendECU.
Wrightwasoneofthefirstblack
faculty members at ECU, and
she worked diligently to en-
hance student life for minori-
ties.
Over 200 people attended
lastyear'sproduction,and more
than that are expected this year.
Watson believes that "if we can
educate and entertain at the
same time, then we've reached
our goal
Return to Paradise brings important subjects to surface
(AP)-Reading Breyten
Breytenbach's Return to Paradise
(Ha rcourt Brace, S22.95) is like meet-
ing a fascinating person at a dinner
party and going away feeling that
the conversation and exchange of
ideas were the real feast.
But one also feels almost
overstuffed, with so much to ab-
sorb at once.
Breytenbach is an Afrikaner
poet, prose writer and artist. He
first left South Africa in 1960 for
Paris, where he married a Vietnam-
ese, Yolande, thereby breaking the
fundamental apartheid tenet
against mixed marriages. He also
joined the fight against mandatory
racial separation and became per-
sona non grata. And he made a
name for himself as an artist and
writer.
Breytenbach was allowed to
return for three months in 1973,
then returned clandestinely in 1975
and was arrested and imprisoned
for seven years as a terrorist. In
1991, after many things had
changed, he made his Return to Para-
dise legally for three months.
He traveled South Africa from
stem to stem, ga thering with friends,
speaking at universities, hiking in
the mountains, seeing Iris family,
visiting his parents' graves. One
might wish the book had a map, to
follow his itinerary better. But it
does have a useful list identifying
the people and organizations he al-
ludes to throughout.
Meet not only F.W. DeKlerk
and Nelson Mandela, but Enos
Mabuza, the shy Christian chief
minister of the KaNgwame home-
land, coping, amid its poverty, with
refugees from the war across the
border in Mozambique. Or the
late Thomas Sankara of Burkina
Faso, who the author holds in high
esteem. Or Jan Walker, African
adventurer and dealer of French
origin who sports a wooden hand
to replace one he lost, and keeps
popping up at unexpected mo-
ments.
One is aware of the poet's
love of words, the artist's eye and

Shorten Knife
Rock Animals
� m m m
Shonen Knife is back! Yes,
everybody's favorite Japanese post-
punk girl group hasblessed us with
a new release. Their odd blend of
early "60s pop sty lings and late "70s
punk rock guitar is as fresh as evet
it's runtime again!
This time out, the album is
called Rock Animals,which refers to
both the band and the album's al-
most-title-track "Concrete Ani-
mals This song is about those little
animal statues that you see in parks.
And that's all it's about. No, really.
No metaphors, noclever wordplay,
it's just about what a neat idea it was
to put those things in parks, and
how cool it is to sit on them and
pretend you're riding a giant rac-
coon.
Perhaps now would be a
good time to mention the simplicity
of Shonen Knife's music. Singer
songwriter Naoko Yamano gener-
ally writes songs about stuff she
likes, with no particular interest in
being "hip" or "cool" or any other
arbitrary social constructs. Which
of course is what makes Shonen
Knife so transcendentlv cool in the
first place.
Anvway, RecA. Animals is a
collection of simple songs about
simple things. Take the first track,
"Quaver for example. It's a story
of unrequited love, about how some
guv makes Naoko turn to jellv in-
side, and how she wants to do the
same to him While there seems to
be some underlying theme of sexual
equality here, "Quavers" is really
just an honest song about attrac-
tion, with a slightly raunchy punk
rock edge that lets us know they're
talking about sex.
Other super-cool tracks in-
clude "LittleTree an environmen-
tal song that draws a comparison
between caterpilfers earing leaves
and Caterpiller tractors knocking
down forests,and "Catnip Dream
about cats getting high on their cat-
nip toys. Also neat is "Tomato
Head a surreal piece about how
Naoko drank so much tomato juice
that she started to photosynthesize
in her sleep one night! Maybe the
band's been hitting that catnip, too.
Roek Animals drags a bit at
this point. As engaging as Shonen
Knife's sound is, at four minutes to
a track, it can get a little tiresome To
make matters worse, a lot of slow
songs are strung together in the
middle,and this lackofvariety hurts
the album. 1 uckily, however, the
Knife gives us that variety with the
last two tracks.
"( obra Versus Mongoose"
is about a gathering to see the title
animals fight, but the battle never
comes off and everybody goes
home with some bottled snake-
oil. Thus one's a blistering head-
banger, with a grinding guitar
bridge that sounds like it was lifted
from the last Metallica album.
In another vein entirely is
"Music Square the final track.
It's an acoustic piece about play-
ing guitar and falling in love at a
music festival It's nice and peace-
ful, and it's a good way round out
the album.
With simple melodies and
I vrics so honest, they hurt, Shonen
Knife has won over even my jaded
heart. Now don't get me wrong. I
still love my dark, brooding alter-
native rock heroes. 1 couldn't live
without the cynicism of Nirvana
or the nasty wit of Sonic Youth,
but Shonen Knife is a welcome
respite from the dark side.

Groupie makes herself known
CGi
PHILADELPHIA (AP) �
Pamela Des Barres considered her-
self a "geisha girl" in the 1960s, a
companion to some of the biggest
names in rock 'n' roll. But to the rest
of the world, she was merely a
groupie.
Her book of memoirs, I'm Witli
the Band: Confessions of a Groupie,
brought another label�best-selling
author.
Now comes the paperba k edi-
tionofthe45-year-
old Des Barres' sec-
ond book, Take
Anotlier Little Piece
of My Heart.
While the
1987 memoirs
chronicled Des
Barres' freewheel-
ing life in the '60s,
her latest is a more
sobering look at
her life in the '80s and '90s.
The author married British
singer-actor Michael Des Barres in
1974. He was never very successful,
although he did front the defunct
band Power Station at the Live Aid
show in 1985.
Michael abused alcohol and
drugs, and had several extramarital
affairs which finally led to the disso-
lution of their marriageafter 13 years.
He's now sober, and the two remain
close friends.
They had a son, Nicholas Dean,
in 1978, and the difficulties they had
with him make up a good portion of
the book. Now 15, Nicholas is a gifted
but troubled child.
Des Barres admits she trans-

ferred some of theextreme devotion
she lavished on Michael to her son.
"I just prav I haven't ruined him,
because he's seen Michael ver-
ballv abuse me, he's seen me kow-
towtohimshesaidVVetalkabout
it a lot, because I want him to know
that I know I (messed) up, and I'm

aries.

Angeles.

ing better
these
days, and
so is Des
Barres.
She's da t-
ingsinger
Jimmy
Thrill, 25, but she admits that her
pastsometimescomesback to haunt
him.
"People will come up to him
and say things like, 'Oh, Pamela Des
Barres is your girlfriend? Didn't she
sleep with all of Led Zeppelin at
once?' That kind of thing to deal
with is hard, but still, I want the
world to know that I am not
ashamed
Back in the '60s, Pamela Miller
wormed her way into the backstage
world of major rock bands as they
passed through Sunset Strip in Los
Angeles. She had love affairs with
everyone from Mick Jagger to Jim
Morrison to Keith Moon to Led Zep-
pelin guitarist Jimmy Page and oth-
ers � even a then-unknown actor
named Don Johnson.
Under the tutelage of Frank
Zappa, she became Miss Pamela in
the GTOs (Girls Together Outra-
geously), a girl rockgroup that had its
own groupies.
She dabbled in acting, danced
with the Jimi Hendrix Experience,
sewed cowboy shirts for musicians
suchasGram Parsonsand was nanny
to two of Zappa'schildren. She even
posed for Playboy when she was
nearly 40.
I'm With the Band was an out-
landish encyclopedia of sex, drugs
and rock 'n' roll with graphic de-
scriptions of Des Barres' sexuality
and numerous affairs.
"It's history � I always thought
of it as history, even when I was
living through it Des Barres said.
"This was a time you could do those
things. ThLs was when you could get
away with it, and in the world I was
in, you were supposed to do it �
experiment and have fun
The groupies of the '60s and '70s
were in a different league than
today's, she said. Now those who
want to get close to bands have to
sexually work their way through
roadies to get to the stars, if they get
to them at all.
"When I was doing it, there was
no word for it � we just wanted to
meet the guys who played the mu-
sic she said. "There was nothing
that happened first, with roadies or
people at doors or anything that you
had to encounter

Kodak creates
new camera
NEW YORK (AP)�The Asso-
ciated Pressand Eastman KodakCo.
today announced they had devel-
oped a digital camera that closely
resembles the size and portability of
one using film.
TheNewsCamera 2000doesnot
useextemal batteries and cables that
were cumbersome for many news
photographers. Thecompanies have
also improved thelightingcolorand
storage capabilities of the machine
over previous generations of digital
cameras.
A digital, or electronic, camera
stores an image the same way com-
puters store data. With such a cam-
era,nochemical processing of film is
required, saving time for photogra-
phers trying to meet a deadline. An
image can be taken and transmitted
on a network within a few minutes.
The machine is a modified
Nikon 35 mm camera with a pack at
the bottom for battery and storage
diskette. Eachdiskettecanhold60to
70 images, which can then be viewed
on a personal computer.
"The name of the product re-
ally sums up the market said
David Tomlin, director of technol-
ogy marketing for the AP. "But we
are sure there are applications out-
side news such as la w enforcement,
science and medicine and a variety
of corporate environments where
speed and quality are important
The camera has a list price of
$17,750 but will be available to
members of The Associated Press
for $16,500.

Beauford says he was raised on
jazz and he adds this dimension
to the band with his groovy beat
on the drums. Leroi Moore plays
woodwinds and has been a jazz
compratiot of Carter's for years.
Matthews found bass
player Stefan Lessard when he
was only 15 and playing in night
clubs. Matthews said, "he just
had a feeling about him, his spirit,
his sense of music, it's so much
beyond his years The violinst,
Boyd Tinsley, is the livewire of
the band with his fast�paced
style. Tinsley says, "When I'm
really into the music, my whole
body, my whole soul's into it
The Attic crowd went absolutely
crazy when Tinsley cut loose on
his violin during the show. The
band takes all these different
music influences and creates posi-
tive, inspirational songs.
The band's bus broke
down on the way to the Attic so
they arrived a little late. No one
would have known they were run-
ning late by the terrific show they
displayed. They played a first set
of uplifting music for about an
hour and a half and took a short
intermission. Shortly after the
band left the stage, the crowd did
not wait long to start yelling and
calling the band back for more.
In their next set, they
played some songs that had the
crowd really into it. One song is
called "Satellite which is a slower
song with a great beat. This song
really shows off Dave Matthews'
musical talents with the different
notes he hits-high and low-during
this song. One of their most popu-
lar songs, "Ants Marching had
the crowd begging for more with
Boyd Tinsley's intense violin solo.
After this song, the band went off
the stage and the Attic crowd went
into a frenzy. The band was a
definite crowd pleaser.

ECU bounces back to beat W&M
By Brad Oldham
File photo
Kurt Small, seen here last year, was a pre-season All-CAA selection.
Going into last night's game, he was averaging 16.6 points a game.
Staff Writer
Lester Lyons is back.
The senior guard from
Lewiston, N. C. scored 20 points
last night to help the Pirates scalp
the Tribe of William & Mary, 80-63.
Lyons, along with junior center
Anton Gill, who led all scorers with
21 points on nine of 13 shooting,
helped ECU move to 6-5 in the
CAA, and 14-9 overall.
The win was monumental for
both Lyons and ECU, who lost a
heartbreaking game to Old Domin-
ion on Saturday, with Lyons scor-
ing just seven points. The win in-
sures the Pirates of only their sec-
ond winning season in the past
decade.
"I think the three thousand or
so people that were not here to-
nightwho were here Saturday night
missed a pretty good game Head
Coach Eddie Payne said following
the game. "We played well I
thought. Anton Gill was very, very
good in the second half, obviously
scoring 19 points. Over the last nine
games he is averaging over 18points
a game and shooting over 62 per-
cent. He is proving to me that he is
definitely an all-conference per-
former
"It was good to see Lester come
out and play after a real, for him,
poor perf ormance
"I really wanted to pick things
up Lyons said. "I only have four
or five games left, and you can't
have six and seven point games in
the last games of the year
The Pirates never trailed in the
game. A 3-pointer by Lyons to start
Gilll's 19 second-half points help
Pirates drop Tribe
the Pirates scoring would be his
first of three treys on the night.
William & Mary's Matt Verkey
(17 points) tied the score at three
and would be the closest that the
Tribe would get. EastCarolina went
on a 15-3 run against W&M, getting
help from freshman Tim Basham,
who scored nine points, all coming
from 3-pointers.
The Pirates went up by 13 on a
Lyons 3-pointer with just over 13
minutes left to play in the half. The
Tribe rallied back, though. Sparked
by an in-your-face jam over Pirate
guard Skipp Schaefbauer by
W&M's Kurt Small. It helped the
Tribe pull to within six points with
eight minutes left to play in the half.
Schaefbauer got his pride back
though, nailing a 3-pointer from
NBA rangebefore the half wasover,
giving ECU the 33-23 halftime lead.
The second half was single-
handedly dominated by Gill. Scor-
ing nineteen points and cotrolling
the paint for the Pirates, Gill helped
ECU keep the lead in double-digits
virtually the entire second half.
The Pirates kept up the job of
stopping the Tribe's Kurt Small.
Small, a pre-season all CAA selec-
tion, was held to just 11 points on
five of 16 shooting from the field.
ECU kept the Tribe from scoring
inside, primarly by swatting shots
as easily as if they were swatting
flies. The Pirates had a total of nine
blocked shots on the night, three
coming from the alwaysemotional
Chuckie Robinson, who never
failed to let the Minges crowd know
when he was pumped up.
East Carolina ended the game
by displaying some above-the-rim
magic. First, it was Gill, slamming
it home despite having W&M's 6-
foot-8 David Cully on his back, fol-
lowed by a Lyons jam that brought
the remaining fans to their feet.

Lady Pirates swarmed by Eagles in overtime
(AUSID)�Washington D.C
Sophomores Gail Wilkins and
Becky Greenfield combined for 39
points as American topped East
Carolinamovertime,80-73,tobreak
a7-game losing streak in a CAA
battle before 198 in Bender Arena.
American (7-13,2-6 CAA), who
also broke an 8- game losing streak
to East Carolina, got 20 points from
Wilkins and a career high 19 from
Greenfield, 14 of which coming in
the first half. Ally Baker added 12
points while Tiffany Turner pulled
down a team high 10 rebounds for
the Eagles, who broke out of shoot-
ing slump (32 percent in last seven
games) hitting 47percent of their
shots from the field.
The Eagles were sparked by
the return of leading scorer and
rebounder Kirsten Keller who re-
turned to action with 8:12 left in the
game after missing five games with
a knee injury.
East Carolina (2-16,1-7 CAA)
who extend their losing streak to
eight games, was led by Tomekia
Blackmon's career-high 25 points
and grabbed nine rebounds. Tracey
Kelley added 12 points and 11 re-
bounds, while Justin Allpress also
added 12 points.
The Eagles out-scored the Pi-
rates, 13-7, in the overtime follow-
ing a 67-67 regulation deadlock.
AU was aided by the return of
Kirsten Keller who kicked off the
extra session with six straight points
to put American ahead 73-67 fol-
lowingherfour-pointplay. Keller's
driving lay up and subsequent in-
tentional foul by ECU's Kelley gave
the Eagles the cushion before hit-
ting 7-of-12 free throws in the over-
time.
American's Greenfield forced
overtime with a 12-foot baseline
jumper with :25 seconds remain-
ing. East Carolina's Allpress hit a
similar jumper eight seconds ear-
lier, at :33, to put the Pirates up
briefly at 67-65.

Blackmon went to worK with four

Monarchs rally
to stun Pirates
By Brad Oldham
Staff Writer
The Monarchs of Old Domin-
ion University (15-7, 7-3) moved
into second place in the Colonial
Athletic Conference with a 75-72
win over ECU (13-9,5-5), Saturday
night at a sold-out Minges Coli-
seum.
ODU fought back from a 13-
point second-half deficit to get the
victory. The Monarchs held Lester
Lyons, who had been averaging
16.7 points a game, to just seven
points.
"We had great balance to-
night ODU head coach Oliver
Purnell said after the game. "Kevin
Larkin 14 points, probably exem-
plified our type of play with floor-
bum type defense. Kevin Swann
11 points did a great job of con-
trolling things for us. I thoughtOdell
Hodge 18 points, 14 rebounds
wore them down in there. Mike
Jones 16points and Petey Sessoms
13points knocked down the shots
from the outside
"It's real disappointing to lose
a game like that when you give a
great effort ECU head coach Eddie
Payne said. "I felt that once we got
up by 13, we quit playing and doing
me things that got us ahead. We got
in a rush and lost our sense of our
tempo that we wanted. We shot the
ball quicker and that's when we got
out of transition. Tonight we got
too excited, and we were in too big
of a hurry, evidenced by thatstretch

Tyson's lawyer might have hindered chance for new trial
(AP) � An aggressive public
relationscampaignthatcelebrity law-
yer Alan Deishowitz has waged on
Mike Tyson's behalf may haveback-
fired, a legal expert says.
"The tendency oflndiana judges
and Indiana politicians is to reject
outside influence said Hal
Pepinsky, an attorney and criminal
justice professor at Indiana Univer-
sity. "They resent (Dershowitz) try-
ing to tell mem what they should do.
They sure aren't going to take it too
kindly if he's caustic.
"The showmanship really
doesn't do Tyson any good
Two years after Tyson was con-
victed of raping a beauty pageant
contestant in an Indiananpolis hotel
room in 1991, theformer heavyweight
boxing champion still sits in jail. But
Dershowitz lias won a new round in
court.
He will get a chance to argue at
a June hearing that prosecutors knew,
and should have told the jurors, that
Tyson's accuser planned to sue the
boxer and make money from the
case.
Even if Tyson is granted a new
trial by Judge Patricia Gifford of
Marion County Superior Court, he
will be just 11 months away from his
May 1995 release from the Indiana
Youth Center.
Friends say Tyson has lost faith
in the legal system and now spends
his prison time rea ding and studying
in hopes that an education will win
him early release.
"His spirits are very high con-
sidering that he feels he's in jail un-
justly, that he's innocent, that some-
how forsome reason he'sbeing used
as an instrument said boxing pro-
moter Don King,oneof Tyson'sclose
friends.
Another Tyson friend, the Rev.
Charles Williams, said the boxer will
try to pass the general equivalency
degree test next month.
If Tyson, 27, receives a GED,
three months will be deducted from
his six-year sentence, said Phil
Slavens, a spokesman for the Youth
Center. That means he could be re-
leased as early as next February.
Tyson passes time at the prison
west of Indianapolis in class orstudy-
ing, his friends said. At night he stud-
ies, worksoutand makescollect calls
to friends.
Williamssaid Tyson enjoys read-
ing history and philosophy. He also
is fascinated with China, and a tutor
comes to the prison to teach him
Chinese, said friend Muhammad
Sideeq.
"He has just constantly said
he's a new person, a brand-new
person. Most people won't recog-
nize him Sideeq said.
Tyson had some disciplinary
problemswhenhefirstgottoprison,
but has not gotten into trouble in
the last year, Slavens said.
The former champ has kept
his weight around 220 and trains at
least twiceaday, Williams said. He
runs in the prison gymnasium for
45 minutes and does up to 45 min-
utes of calisthenics in his 8-by-10
cell each day.
"He looks like he's in the best
shape of his life Slavens said.

Pippen shines without Michael Jordan
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) � You
could never really be sure about
Scottie Pippen, not as long as
Michael Jordan was around.
Take Jordan away from the
Chicago Bulls, the reasoning
went, and Pippen might wilt un-
der the pressure.
Wrong.
Any doubts that might have
lingered about Pippen were
erased Sunday night when he
emerged from his retired
teamma te's considerable shadow
by scoring 29 points, grabbing 11
rebounds and making four steals
to lead the East over the West
127-118 in the NBA All-Star
Game.
Pippen was a unanimous
choice as the game's most valu-
able player, an a ward Jordan won
only once in eight All-Star ap-
pearances.
"It wasn't a statement, but
maybe it was a past-due judg-
ment Pippen said.
"With Michael on the club, it
overshadowed some of the guys
like Horace (Grant), BJ.
(Armstrong), and to some extent
myself. It's time we were all rec-
ognized as All-Stars
Although the East roster in-
cluded seven players making
their first All-Star appearances,
three regulars � Pippen, New
York's Patrick Ewing and
Cleveland's Mark Price �
showed why they keep making
the learn.
Ewing and Price each scored
20 points, and they combined
with Pippen and first-year All-
Star John Starks to stop a West
rally that reduced a double-digit
East lead to one point midway
through the fourth quarter.
It was the first time an AU-
Star team had three 20-point scor-
ers since Tom Chambers, Rolando
Blackman and James Worthy did
it for the West in 1987.
Houston's Hakeem
Olajuwon and San Antonio's
David Robinson led the West with
19 points each. Seattle's Shawn
Kemp grabbed 12 rebounds, and
Utah's John Stockton � who was
co-MVP (with Karl Malone) of
last year's game � had 13 points
and 10 assists.
"Scottie's performance was
tremendous said East coach
Lenny Wilkens of Atlanta. "I
thought he, Mark and Patrick
were the steadying forces down
the stretch
In a game that frequently is
devoid of strategy, Wilkens used
rotations that took advantage of
the four sets of teammates on his
roster.
He often had three Knicks
(Ewing, Starks and Charles
Oakley) or three Bulls (Pippen,
Armstrong and Grant) on the
floor at the same time.
Atlanta's Dominique Wilkins
and Mookie Blaylock also got
playing time together, as did New
Jersey's Derrick Coleman and
Kenny Anderson.
"There are certain things in
the NBA that all teams do, and
we tried to get sets going where
they knew how to play with one
another Wilkens said.
Wilkens relied on the New
York trio when it mattered most.
After the West closed to 108-107
on Robinson's foul shot with 7:17
left, Ewing made a short follow-
up shot and Starks sank an 18-
footer that widened the lead to
five.
Robinson responded with a
three-point play, but Starks an-
swered immediately with a 3-
pointer, one of a record 10 made
by the East.
P;ppen made five of them,
one shy of the All-Star record
Price set last year.
The West never got closer
than two after that, and the East
clinched it on a crowd-pleasing,
left-handed, alley-oop slam by-
Orlando's Shaquille O'Neal on a
pass from Pippen with 32 sec-
onds left.
It was easily the highlight of
the night for O'Neal, the NBA's
leading scorer, who missed his
first 10 shots under heavy pres-
sure from a West defense bent on
keeping him from stealing the
show.
"We wanted to bring him down
a notch one West all-star said.
"He's not so arrogant now, that
punk
He finished with eight points
and 10 rebounds.

Palmer and
Dilfer projected
to go in first
round of draft
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) �
David Palmer wanted to impress
the NFL scouts. So did Trent Dilfer,
but on his own turf.
Palmer,a triple- threat receiver
from Alabama, and Dilfer, who led
the nation in passing efficiency at
Fresno State, were among more
than 300 players at the annual NFL
scouting combine, which ended
yesteday.
Most of the players went
through the full battery of tests,
including interviews and psycho-
logical and medical evaluations.
Some, such as Dilfer, declined the
on-field workouts.
"It's very simple he said. "I
feel it's in my best interest not to
work out when I'm not in the best
shape I can possibly be in.
"Right now, with the travel-
ing I've been doing, the speaking
engagements Ihaven'tbeen con-
sistent with my workouts. I've
thrown all the time, I've run, but I
ha ven't done some of the things I'd
like to do as much as I can. They
can come in and see me work out
and see the finished product, I
guess
Dilfer, quarterback Heath
Shuler of Tennessee, running back
Marshall Faulk of San Diego State
and defensive tackle Dan
Wilkinson of Ohio State, all of
whom are projected to go early in
the first round of the April 24-25
draft, were among those who came
in for the early testing but chose to
schedule private workouts for the
scouts later.
Palmer, however, saw thecom-
bine as a big opportunity.
"It's going to help me a lot he
said. "If I go out and run a good
time, I think it'll move me up in the
draft. It's very important to me
how well I do here
Palmer, who finished third in
voting for the Heisman Trophy,
was a dazzling receiver for the
Crimson Tide, totaling 1,000 yards
on 61 catches last season. He also
ran the ball, returned punts and
kickoffs and even played some
quarterback.
"It was just something I did to
help my team he said.
"We didn't pass the ball a lot,
but I always wanted the ball in my
hands, and playing all the posi-
tions got the ball in my hands. Our
quarterback went down, and I
think I played in three games as
quarterback. I played quarterback
in high school, so there was no
doubt I could play on the college
level
He doesn't plan to play quar-
terback in the NFL, however.
"I just want to catch it and run
some reverses. Going into! ledraft,
returning punts and kicks will be
my biggest assets, and I think it
will help me make it in the league
if I can run reverses and catch
passes too he said.
The6-foot-5,230-pound Dilfer
hit 65 percent of his passes for 3,276
yards and led the nation with a
173.1 quarterback efficiency rating
last season. He also threw an
NCAA record 271 passes without

Coach Payne was speaking on
the Monarch's early jump on the
Pirates, going ahead 14-2 during
the firs! five minutes ot the game.
Tine saving grace tor ECU was jun-
ior Chuckie Robinson, who came
into the game with 14 minutes in
the first-halt to score 13 points.
Robinson finished with lr.
The Monaivhs kept the lead
until freshman Skipp Schaefbauer
came into the game to nail a 3-
pointer with eight minutes remain-
ing in the ha If, giving ECU the 23-24
lead.
Center Anton dill (19 points,
seven rebounds) scored 1 Opoints in
the half as well, helping the Pirates
maintain a three-point cushion, 39-
36, going in at the break.
EastCarolina carried their first
half momentum to start off the sec-
ond half. A 15-foot jumper bv
Schaefbauer gave ECU their big-
gest lead of the game at 13. ith 13
minutes to plav, Purnell called a
rime-out to settle down his players
and that was the time when the fide
slowly started shifting the Monarchs
way.
A 3-pointerb v ODU's I ones cu t
the lead back down to 10, and the
Monarchs full-court press gave the
Pirates fits and saw the lead start to

The Monarchs got the lead
back, with a 3-pointer from Larkin
at the 7 minute mark, to make the
score b42.
With I1 seconds left to pla in
the game, Larkin went to the line for
ODU to hit both free-throws after a

74-70 lead. The Pirates responded
with a quick lay-up from point-
guard Kareem Richardson (eight
points, six assists) to cut the lead to
two with 12 seconds to pla.
Another foul bv Schaefbauer
sent Larkin to the line again, only
this time missing his first shot and
