When it rains, it floods at ECU.
Mendenhall housekeepers had a

Dr. Joycelyn Elders, surgeon
general of the United States, will be

scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

She spoke at the Chancellor's Fo-
rum in 1992 while director of the
Arkansas Department of Health.
She was nominated to the sur-
geon general's office in J' tly of 1993
by President Clinton.
"I want to be the vo: ce and the
vision of the poor and powerless
Elders said during her confirmation
hearings. "I want to change social
concern about social problems that
affect health into commitment
Elders often speaks her mind
on issues such as sex education in
schools, banning tobacco sales to
minors and extending health ser-
vices to those in need throughout
the country.
Her forum on disease preven-
tion and increased personal respon-
sibility for individual health care is
parallel toClinton'sproposed health
care reform. "I want to change the
way we think about health by put-
ting prevention first Elders said.
While working for the Arkan-
sasstate health post, Elders increased
early childhood screenings from
4,000 to45,000infouryears.Shealso
elevated the number of infant im-
munizations and increased prena-
tal care for women.

Elders never saw a physician until
her first year of college at Philander
Smith in Little Rock, Ark. A church
scholarship allowed her to attend
the college at the age of 15.
Elders graduated from Phi-
lander Smith when she was 18 and
soon after joined the Army where
she trained in physical therapy. The
G.I. Bill later sent her to the Univer-
sity of Arkansas Medical School
where she completed her residency
in pediatrics.

Religion seminar held
By Jeb Brookshire
Staff Writer
Almost every day the news
is full of examples of religious
intolerance. Catholics and Protes-
tants fight in Ireland. Muslims and
Jews fight over land in the Middle
East. On Monday Feb. 28, repre-
sentatives of eight religious
groups gathered to address the
topic of religious tolerance.
The program was called
Religious Tolerance: An Explora-
tion of Conflict and Agreement at
the Turn of the Century and was
sponsored by the ECU Philoso-
phy Club and the Phi Sigman Tau
honor society.
Among the featured panel-
ists were ECU professors Avtar
Singh (Sikh), Umesth Gulati
(Hindu), and Byron Coulter (Ti-
betan Buddhist). Reverend Daniel
Earnhardt (Protestant Christian)
and Father Paul Vaeth (Roman
Catholic), who are both chaplains
of ECU student religious groups,
were there. The other speakers
included Rabbi Michael Cain (Ju-
daism), Noria Namaz (Sunni
Muslim) and Yvonne Frost
(Church of Wicca).
Earnhardt was the first pan-
elist to speak. He began by outlin-
ing what makes a religion accord-
ing to the United Nations. These
guidelines include assembling to
worship, establishing a place to
worship, practicing religious cus-
toms, teaching religious beliefs,
recognizing religious holidays,
and several other examples.

Campus group forms to improve parking
By Jason Williams
Staff Writer
Can't find a parking place?
Tired of walking 15 minutes to
class? A group of students are
organizing to do something
about parking on campus.
STOrP, or Students Tired
Of Parking Problems, held their
second meeting Tuesday to hear
from Lavton Getsinger, associ-
ate vice chancellor for business
affairs. Getsinger affirmed his
commitment to finding a solu-
tion to parking in the best inter-
ests of the students.
"My first priority is the bet-
terment of this university
Getsinger said. "I'm against rais-
ing the parking fee right now,
because there is no plan for that
monev. We need a plan before
we finance the plan.
"The window of opportu-
nity has come and gone. We've
decided we're not going to raise
the fee for this year. We've got
between now and next semester
to have a plan in place
Getsinger mentioned that
one of the ideas being consid-
ered by the Parking Committee
is a graduated parking fee in
which prices would be higher
the closer to main campus the
spaces are.
Getsinger said that stu-
dents will have a chance to com-
ment on the upcoming plan. Pat
Gertz, director of Parking and
Traffic Services, confirmed that
a survey and several public hear-
ings for students in residence
halls are forthcoming.
David Richmond, a junior
political science major, founded
STOPP to do something about
the parking situation on cam-
"I hear a lot of people talk-
ing about parking, arguing
about parking around campus
he said. "I just feel that we can
do something to improve it
Richmond said that the or-
ganization has taken a number
of stances on issues concern-
ing parking. "We feel that the
number of spaces should equal
the number of stickers sold.
That's our main issue.
"We need a quick solu-
tion, not a quick fix. If it takes
a small increase in the price of
stickers, and if that is going to
increase our chance at getting
a place to park, then I'll sup-
port that.
"Also, we are supporting
surface lots over a parking
deck at this time. The overall
goal is definitely a parking
deck, but, it's more feasible
right now for us to go for the
surface lots Richmond said.
Departmental Profile: English Dept.
By Stephanie Lassiter
Staff Writer
English is a lot more than
Shakespeare, Poe and Thoreau.
There is more to being an En-
glish major than reading countless
novels and learning the rules of
grammar. There is also a major
within the English department
where one half of the course work
involves writing.
According to Dr. Donald
Palumbo, chair of the English de-
partment, an English ma jor is a great
foundation for a person.
"From a practical point of
view, English is a good preparation
because of its emphasis on commu-
nication Palumbo said. "Every-

aesthetics of language and litera-
ture Palumbo said.
If this does not sound appeal-
ing, there is a Bachelor of Arts de-
gree with a concentration in writ-
ing. One half of the course work
involves reading, but the other half
is based on writing. Choices of
course work include Non-fiction
Writing, Fiction Writing, Poetry and
Writing for Business and Industry.

Bachelor of Science degree for high
school teaching. Course work in-

by identifying the threedefinitions
of tolerance. They were to allow
or permit, to put up with or bear,
and to recognize and respect.
Vaeth then said that the last defi-

meant by religious tolerance.
"Religious tolerance is not a
matter of tolerance but a principle
of religious freedom said Vaeth.
"Every one is bound to seek the
truth and you can't expect or force

Cain spoke third. He stated
that it was God's wish for us to be
tolerant and that we should help
each other. He went on to say that

the image of God and that every-
one is one of God's children.

on the beliefs of Buddhism. He
said Buddhists are the most toler-

is to end all suffering. Some people
do not consider Buddhism a reli-

life to Buddha as possible.

by saying, "In Buddhism you de-

them. Conversely, the closer the
radii are to the center, the closer
they are to one another. He en-
couraged the audience to distin-
guish between truth and false-
hood, and to become better con-
sumers of religion.
"The essence of all religions
is love said Gulati. "Love signi-
fies unity and harmony, not ha-
tred and division. Therefore, a true
religious person can never hate
because you cannot love God and
hate another human being at the
same time
Singh spoke next, giving an
overview of the Sikh faith. Singh
stated that people are willing to
kill other people due to conflict in
beliefs or out of fear of something
different. He also told the audi-
ence that no one was willing to
find out about other religions, just
put them down. In Sikhism, God
is manifest in all things. God is
also omniscient and omnipresent.
Frost caught the audience's
attention the most. Frost was the
represenative from the Church of
VVicca. More or less the "craft as
it is called, is witchcraft. In the
craft, God is genderless and life is
basically an assignment given to
us after a previous life has ex-
pired. Frostexplained that thecraft
was the best decision for her; how-
ever, she did not hesitate to ex-
plain the philosophy of " if it ha rm
none, do as you will a common
craft belief. This comment was
exemplified by the craft's practice
of marriages in terms of contracts
and "debt-free-sex
" After practicing the era ft for
25 years said Frost "I am proud
to say, yes, 1 am a witch
Namaz,aSunni Muslim, was
the last to speak. She stated that
Islam encompassed all faiths and
that the followers of Islam seek
the truth. An explanation of Is-
lamic beliefs was the focus of her
discussion. She did mention that
free-will was a big part of the Is-
lamic faith and that Allah was the
only true way to get to paradise.
"Do not lend someone a deaf
ear she warned Ra ther, be open
and accepting of what they be-
The whole forum was best
summed up by Dr. Gulati, a prac-
ticing Hindu, when he said, "what
we want is not just tolerance, but
acceptance; tolerance implies su-
periority, acceptance signifies
equality. Open yourselves to all
religions besides your own. Be
steadfast in your own religion; over
time it will manifest itself vour
humanity. Ignoranceof other faiths
will result in bigotry and violence

Media Board slack with responsibilities
The University Media Board, according to
their constitution, should be responsible Forwhat?
Well, honestly, it doesn't really matter, since they
don't seem to be performing their duty. They
generally act as the parents of all media on cam-
pus. As parents, they hold the purse strings for
media organizations. The Board isalso set up to
discuss any problems each media group is having
and to appoint heads of organizitions, but this
becomes rather difficult when members don't
show up to their own meetings.
The Media Board consists cf representatives
from SGA, Student Union, RHA DFC, PanheUenic,
Minority StudentOrganizationartd variousother
organizations. There must be i quorum of five to
vote on any topic, as well as i faculty member or
the administrator. Aside from Susan Stewart, Stu-
dent Union Representative and Media Board
Chairperson, and RudolphAlexander, Asst. Vice
Chancellor for Student Life and Director of Uni-
versity Unions, the attendance of members has
been laughable.
the part of Dr. Alfred Matthews, Vice Chancellor
for Student Life. He has been absent from every
meeting since last Jul. While Matthews does not
have the privilege t vote on issues, he is an
advisor and membfl" to the Board. And the re-
sponsibility is still hat a replacement should be
made to appear i his place, as every member
should have a representative. While the Media
Board meetings�or any meetings for that matter
�are hardly themosi happenin' place to be, if it
is a responsibilif any mature adult should recog-
nize the necessity in attending. Obviously, the re-
quirement was included in the job description for a
reason. Since so-called grown-ups (parents) think
us "kids" should act in a more reliable fashion,
maybe they should consider setting a good ex-
ample first. The slack Med ia Board members hardly
make me feel like attending my own meetings.
It has been noted that at least half of the
meetings have lacked a quorum. Since there are
infinite matters to be voted on and discussed, what
suffers with members' inconsiderate behavior are
viable publications and programs: Vie East Carolin-
ian, Rebel, Expressions, and WZMB.
In addition to this, those persons who must go
before the Board seeking changes or what-not,
usually can feel certain that these members have
insufficient knowledge of media practices. Aside
from Troy Dreyfus, SGA Representative, members
often have little experience, if any, in the various
media they control. And how can any one person,
or even a handful of people, be expected to know
what goes into a newspaper, a yearbook, a literary
anthology, a radio station and a minority forum �
five very different types of media? The answer is:
They don't. They can't be expected to, but that
doesn't excuse a voluntary lack of representation
for media decisions.
The Media Board doesn't understand the
very thing they advise. Instead, their interests lie in
money, which is hardly the cause of any person
who works in campus media. Corporate money-
grubbers are one thing, slack corporate heads are
quite another.

Grad students veritable gluttons for punishment
A photocopied article from
the January 1st issue of Newsday
found its way to my desk the
other day. Actually, it found its
way onto the desks of many of
the graduate students in what is
known as "the bullpen the En-
glish graduate student office in
General Classroom Building.
The article is about a con-
tract between the state of New
York and a union of about 4,000
graduate teachingassistantsat the
State University of New York. The
contract provides an increase in
salary as well as a health insur-
ance plan that will be provided
by the university. The graduate
students who teach and do re-
search had complained about low
pay and lack of health coverage,
but university officials considered
teaching assistants to be students
instead of employees. After sev-
eral years of resistance by SUNY
officials, a graduate students' em-
ployees union was certified last
I read on to discover that
not only to these graduate assis-
tants receive tuition waivers, they
also make stipends ranging from
$7,000 to $15,000.
Let me tell you a little about
my job(s) as a graduate teaching
assistant. I have a 20-hour assis-
tantship and my duties are to
teach a class of English 1200, work
10 hours as editorial assistant for
a literary journal produced in the
English department and work as
a writing center coordinator (this
means that I help students figure
out how to use computers).
For my 20 hours, which al-
most always amount to 30,1 re-
ceive $2,600 a semester or $5,200
a year. I do not get a tuition waiver
and I am taking two classes. Need-
less to say, $5,200 a year is not
enough to live on, so I got a job as
the assistant lifestyle editor of The
East Carolinian and I also write
opinion columns � in case you
had not noticed. With the help of
a strdent loan, I am making it.
Unfortunately, I had to quit
the assistant editor job because I
found that 1 was not having any
time to study. I have comprehen-
sive exams to take and a thesis to
write if I want to get out of here
sometime in the near future.
But enough about my poor,
pathetic and highly stressed-out
East Carolina University re-
quires that all of its students take
English 1100 and English 1200.
Of all of the sections of 1200 of-
fered this semester, well over 50
percent are taught by graduate
students. 1 do not mean that they
are ta ught under supervision of a
professor I mean they are taught
by graduate students who are
given free reign.
Graduate students who
bring enthusiasm, excitement and
new energy to classes that every-
body else wou Id rather not teach.
Everybody else, however, gets at
least twice as much money to
teach them.
I do not know how gradu-
ate assistants impact other de-
partments, but I am relatively
sure that if the English gradu-
ate students up and went on
strike, it could be a pretty pow-
erful gesture. On short notice,
it would be very difficult, I
would think, to fill all of the
"staff positions that are held
by graduate students. And al-
though we are considered
"staff" on the course offerings
information, we are considered
students in all other respects.
Even though I practically live
in General Classroom Building,
I can not get a staff parking
The situation could be i ec-
tified but it would take a united
front on the part of graduate
students. The problem with
uniting is that most of us are
here for about two years (al-
though some ot us linger like
bad odors for up to six) and so
the face of the graduate stu-
dent population changes even
more quickly thun that of the
undergraduates. By the time we
realize how totaily screwed
we've been and how hopelessly
in debt we are, it's time to

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am disappointed with the article in Tuesday's
East Carolinian concerning the withdrawal of Mother
Nature from the REALCrisisbenefit held last Thursday.
As a member of Mother Nature, the quoted source for
Steve Griffin's article and a former assistant editor at
your paper, I wassurprised with thecontentof the piece.
Not only were a few of Mr. Griffin's facts inaccurate,
there were several missing.
Thestory, as presented in Tuesday's paper, would
lead TEC readers to believe that Mother Nature pulled
their name from the bcTiefit an hour before the show in
order to "cash in "ata fraternity party. This is not thecase.
The organizers of the benefit were made aware a
week before the show that Mother Nature was not
interested in performing the 10:00 time slot we were
allocated. This came from our experience at a Dream
Factory benefit held in Greenville.
Despite advertising, much of our regular audience
showed too late to see us and weredisappointcd to have
payed and missed our performance. To avoid our fans'
dissatisfaction, we told the organizers of the REAL
benefit that we would play only at a later time slot. After
much debate and deliberation, the REAL Crisis center
refused us that slot and we pulled from the benefit on
Monday, Feb. 21. On the day before th show, the
center contacted us with an apparent change of heart
and offered us the desired time slot. We accepted and
made plans to play the show.
To our dismay, the organizers of the benefit
called back at 3:30Thursday, the day of the show, and
reneged on their offer. When we declined to play the
second slot again, the organizers of the benefit re-
moved us from the bill. Only after this did we pick up
the fraternity engagement, booked as a chance to
perform on a regrettably vacant night.
I am pleased that the benefit was a success and
congratulate the job that the other bands did. I am
angered by the perception perpetuated in TEC about
my band and myself. I resent the implications in the
article that we are egotistical and unsympathetic. We
regret the problems with the REAL center and hope
we can participate in their future benefits.
We did what we did only to protect our fans
from precedented disappointment. I apologize for
any inconveniences caused by this unfortunate si rua-

To the Editor:
Last week, I became aware that East Caro-
lina University would not allow the ECU cheer-
leaders and ECU dance teams to attend the Na-
tional Cheering Competition even though both
teams qualified.
As a concerned and upset parent, I would
like to know why. These students spent many
hours practicing, giving up part of their Christ-
mas vacation to be with family and friends and
many early mornings and late nights, hoping to
get a chance to qualify for this very important
National Competition.
Apparently there is a serious communica-
tion problem at ECU. If it is the University's .
policy not to support this type of competition
then why weren't the students informed before
approximately 45 of them put in a month of
hard work practicing, hoping to compete na-
tionally? They never knew they would not be
able to compete even if they qualified!
To qualify forlhe Nationals is a very big
honor and an outstand ing accomplishment and
would bring national attention to ECU. It up-
sets me to know that cheering is apparently not .
recognized as a sport at 1 iy other
Universities do recognize it as a sport

HEATHER, you were unbeelievable
in the spelling bee Saturday.
Congrats! I'm glad you are feeling
better this week. Spring Break is just
a few short days Away. Smile and
hang in there! Watch out Hotlanta,
here we come! Love, Angie
My mind changes with rash and im-
pulsive decisions. But unyielding and
rebellious and I do my own thing.
You said do what you do and say
what you say make it done in a Scor-
pio way. I want a break with a steak
or gourmet food with you. I must
pass and you meet the challenge. I
am the student and you the teacher.
I must make an A. If you want a
break tell me here Tuesday in a Scor-
pio way to meet you where we met
Friday night. Or tell a bartender on
Friday or Saturday night and I will
get your message. Ask me to say who
you are and I start my test. Some
thoughts are vivid they make you
look livid with color flush you brush
your hair with your hands. They act
like a potion and are a strong proof
that makes you think aloof. Are varia-
tions explosive but not harmful or
lethal? No drugsor drinking just pure
thinking. You are wired mentally,
emotionally, physically, intense,
loyal and somewhat sensitive. Hard
to satisfy faint hearted men need not
apply. You are persistent, intuitive,
strong. No need of approval from
others or groups and you do your
own thing. Immune to opinion mak-
ers. Like privacy and power and want
understanding but sometimes you
are not understood wanting peace
mingled with extreme you rehearse
it in a dream. Wanting a man to be in
your plan and in a scenario and scene.
Like intensity with positive with chal-
lenge. Is it hard because you want to
come on looking, feeling talking
strong. You think gamble also play
itsafe. Likeconfidenceindability to
dominate forces. Like knowledge,
intrigue, artistic and sexual experi-
mentation. Curiosity no; only book-
ish. Like tumbles not mumbles with
new angles and tangles. Think things
are seldom or they appearand study
behavior. You don't trust yourself
or others. Like mental experiments
beyond traditional and talk about
things sordid and unimaginable.
You are not an amateur because your
dad is a psychiatrist. You either think
moderation and tell guys what you
want or test him never disclosing all
of your expectations and some get
confused and don't measure up. You
test the limit of guys and like to win
at any cost even if the man is lost or
you don't lit that happen. You know
the game and how they are played
and don't bother wasting time. Scor-
pio it is from the book if you want to
take a look? I have to guess. Things
I cannot mention involving tension.
A man in control who responds with
ambitious strategies but you don't
consult other women on what your
strategy or response should be.
Think aboutcertain taboos. Are some
what competitive and you like forms
of play. You don't want to be dened
you just want to get your way. Yiu
laugh at the absurd. You like speat-
ing and have connections, have i
sense of humor but fits you throv
wanting absolute zero with a man
you do it alone. Hide intense emo-
tion under cool manner but are cal-
culated planner. Scorpio you like
the drastic have I somewhat seen
through you like plastic. You are a
Scorpio? From Scorpio.
Don't get to upset "18" is not that
old. Just kidding. Love, Aaron

Musical 'Sunday' was superb
By Gina Jones
Photo courtesy of ECU Performing Arts Series
Painter George Seurat uses his mistress Dot as a model for his mural
masterpiece "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island on La Grande Jatte
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
On Friday, Feb. 25, University
Unions Performing Arts Series pre-
sented the play "Sunday in the Park
withGeorge" at Wright Auditorium.
The musical, a Stephen
Sondheim-James Lapineproduction
is a Broadway original. It is based on
die French artist George Seurat's fa-
mous painting, "A Sunday After-
noon on the Island of La Grande
Jatte Although Seurat's life was an
inspiration for the play, the play it-
self is fictitious.
ActOneof "Sunday " takes place
in 1884, where George (played by
Adam Karsten) is sketching differ-
ent people for his painting. His main
svbject, both artistically and roman-
tically is Dot, (played by Wendy
Brown) who has childish dreams of
being in the follies. There were 10
musical numbers in the first act, but
the best were "Color and Light
performed by Dot and George,
"Beautiful performed by George
and another cast member, and "We
Do Not Belong Together per-
formed also by Dot and George.
Act Two takes place 100 years
later in 1984, where George's great-
grandson, George, also an artist, is
exhibiting his performance piece,
"Chromolume No. 7at an Ameri-
can art museum. To find inspiration
for his next work, George decides to
visit the island where his great-
grandfatner was inspired to paint
"Sunday Afternoon on the Island of
La Grande Jatte
George gets a visit from the ghost
of Dot, who tells him that he must
move on and do what he wants
artisticallv, not what the world ex-
pects from him. The best number in
ActTwowas"MoveQn performed
by Dot and George.
Overall, the performance of
"Sunday" was good. With a strong
supporting cast, actors Adam
Karsten and Wendy Brown shined
in their spotlight as two lovers who
wanted tc be together but could not.
Adam Karsten, who plays both
Georges, has performed as El Gallo
in "The Fantastics Jeffrey in
"Godspell and Sonny in "Grease
Wendy Brown, who plays Dot
and Marie, George's grandmother,
trained at the Cincinnati College
Conservatory of Music and went
on to play Dorothy in "The Wizard
of Oz Annie in "Annie Get Your
Gun and Val in "A Chorus Line
"Sunday" was written by
Stephen Sondheim and based on
the book of the same title by James
Lapine. The producers are Dennis
Hitchcock and Circa '21 produc-
tions. "Sunday in the Park" won a
Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1985
and a N.Y. Drama Critics Circle for
Best Musical in 1984. It was nomi-
nated for 10 Tony Awards and won
a Grammy for best show cast al-
"Sunday in the Park with
George" was a superb musical with
a great cast of actors, witty dialogue
and soothing music.
Irish Tenor
to sing for
St Patrick's
NEW YORK (AP) � When
Frank Patterson sings about a man
being shipped to an Australian pe-
nal colony for stealing grain in' The
Fields of Arhenry you feel centu-
ries of Irish history weighing you
Death, loss, exile, the po-
tato famine, the Easter Rebellion �
the Irish songbook is rich with pa-
But Patterson, generally rec-
ognized as the greatest living Irish
tenor, is a cheer)' presence on stage
and off. In concert he varies rhree-
hankie ballads such as "Danny Boy"
with an upbeat "My Irish Molly O"
or a show tune.
"My audience now expects
me to do a certain repertoire
Patterson said during lunch in Man-
hattan. "The audience that follows
me, they know what they want They
want the great Irish songs. Then I can
also include the odd classical song or
something from shows, or interna-
tional songs or inspirational songs
Patterson spoke during a
break from preparations for hisbusi-
est time of the year, St. Patrick's Day.
Scheduled performances include
Carnegie Hall on March 14.
To American ears even
Patterson'sspeaking voice is beauti-
ful � soft, lilting, musical. He has a
broad face with twinkling eyes and
a nose and chin that vaguely recall
Karl Maiden.
Pa tterson estimates that his
audience is 75 percent Irish. At a
recent concert on Long Island, sham-
rock-adorned sweaters were much
in evidence, as were nun's habits.
But it's not necessary to be Irish, or
Catholic, to appreciate his velvety,
lyric tenor and his evocative
In 1987, Patterson got a
chance to broaden his following
when John Huston offered him a
part in The Dead. The film, which
turned out to be the legendary
director's last, was based on a story
in James Joyce's "Dubliners
Patterson had been signed
to sing in the mov ie and was taken to
see Huston, who already had audi-
tioned dozens of actors for the role of
tenor Bartell D'Arcy.

Stegmonds classically rock Attic
By Nathan Ellis

The band includes Pete Fredrick, Chocolate Thorn Cooper, Michael
Thrower, Samuel Ross Earnhardt and Jeff "Sir Jeffrey" Alford III
Staff Writer
The Stegmonds' return to the
Attic on Saturday night not only
marked a homecomingfor the band
but a reaf firmation of what they do
best: play classic rock. The group's
origins date back to 1987, when the
chance meeting of two Greenville
musicians spawned the popular
cover band. Since then, some things
have changed�the band's lineup
and the introduction of original
material, to name a few. However,
one thing has not: The Stegmonds
have remained rigidly entrenched
in paying tribute to the genre of
classic rock.
But, taking into account the
sparse crowd that attended the At-
tic on Saturday night, one might
wonder if a demand still exists in
Greenville for their conceptualized,
guitar-rock approach. There is no
doubt that there is a place for clas-
sic rock in today's music scene�

Musician Lynch
continues to entertain
Texan touts international sounds
By Bridget Hemenway
Staff Writer
Music is an art form that
can mean many things to dif-
ferent people. For Ray Lynch it
is a way to touch feelings not
usually expressed.
Although the name Ray
Lynch may seem new, he has
been reaching people through
music for many years. This 50
year-old Texas native began his
musical career very early with
the piano. However, at the age
of 12, he was inspired by the
classic guitar which quickly be-
came his passion.
After three years of study-
ing full-time in Barcelona,
Spain, Lynch returned to Texas
where he composed symphonic
and chamber music, some of
which was performed by the
Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
While studying at the Univer-
sity of Texas, a group of madri-
gal singers invited him to join
the group as a iutist. Within a
matter of months Ray was well
on his way to becoming an ex-
pert Iutist. He then spent the
next seven years performing
with the Quartet and other
groups that were at the core of
New York City's revival of Me-
dieval, Renaissance and Ba-
roque music.
Ray eventually went out on
his own composing and per-
forming. Today, members of the
San Francisco Symphony Or-
chestra join him in the studio to
perform his colorful scores.
Ray's use of acoustic and elec-
tronic instruments creates a
unique style which has
reached and moved millions
of music lovers.
During a recent interview
with The East Carolinian, Ray
Lynch spoke about what he
hopes people will discover
through his music. "I don't
believe you can visualize
music as so many people try
to do. Music is something to
feel. Music is a window which
gives us permission to feel at
a level not ordinarily al-
When asked why he
chose classical format over
several other types of genres,
he responded, "During ado-
lescence I played in a rock
and roll band and even at-
tended backyard parties in
Texas where Roy Orbison
was playing but the music
never touched the same emo-
tions that the classic Renais-
sance style did
Lynch says that he is a
perfectionist when it comes
to his music. "I work by my-
self in the studio putting ev-
erything together piece by
piece. I work sort of as an
artist does with a plain can-
vas. I paint something on the
canvas, look at it for a while
and then go back and add
something to it
See LYNCH page 10

Ray Lynch has incredibly unique ways of looking at music and
the music has remained popular around the world.

Along with "Y & R" and
"World CBS has television's oldest
soap, "Guiding Light" (which came
to TV in 1952), along with the newest,
"The Bold and the Beautiful" (age: a
not-that-young 7 years).
All lhat,plus"ThePrice Is Right"
(22 priceless seasons on CBS after a
righteous run elsewhere).
These five shows are the prov-
ince of Johnson, who soon observes
her own fifth anniversary helping
keep CBS on top. She describes her
job as one of daily maintenance.
Although "the Price Is Right"
with host Bob Barker "goes on its
own speed, we're very involved in
the soaps says Johnson, in New
York to look in on "World" and
"Light" (CBS' other pair originate
from Los Angeles, where sheisbased).
But even as CBS basks in Nielsen
sunshine, there are those who say the
future isn't bright for daytime soaps.
Indeed, last fall Entertainment
Weekly floated a trial obituary. The
magazine reported that their total
ratings have sunk 14 percent in the
past five years � and noted that a
quarter-century ago, before cable be-
gan chipping away at network audi-
ences,everyToplOsoapscored higher
i .tings than "The Young and the
Restless" does today.
How to check this erosion? The
same way you confront other chal-
lengesin daytime, Johnsonsays. With
patience and commitment, two things
sdd om seen m me fly-by-night world
of prime time.
"The rule of thumb, which is
much different than a prime-time
psychology, is that we've got a loyal
core audience for our shows
Johnson explains.
That means we do everything
we can to retool and rebuild the
franchiseof a particularshow,rather
than saying, 'Well, it's slipped a little
in the ratings, so we'll put on a new
show in its place You can't assume
the audience will be there for that
new show.
"Daytime is glacial she says.
"Something takes a long time to fail,
and also a long time to catch on,
because people don't automatically
sample. Audiences may graze
through the syndicated talk shows,
but not through soaps. Loyalty is a
big factor
Seagal's On Deadly Ground
(AP)-Steven Seagal seems the
unlikeliest of action heroes. With his
receding hairline, bland looks and flat
voice, he resembles a smalltime stock-
broker more than a moie enforcer.
Yet a few movies have established
him as a contender to Arnold and Sly.
On Deadly Ground, which sold
$12.7miIlionworthof tickets inits first
weekend, will strengthen Seagal's
position No matter that it's clumsily
leadenly directed by the star himself.
Some of the lines might draw
hoots from more sophisticated audi-
ences. When the villain is captured
and hanging from his heels, he chal-
lenges, "Go ahead and shoot me The
hero replies, "I wouldn't dirty my
bulletson you He finds a nastier way
to dispatch his enemy.
Industrialist Michael Caine oper-
ates a huge Alaskan oil complex which
he is racing to complete so his mineral
rights won't revert to the Eskimos.
Seagal, an oil rigger and firefighter, is
appalled by Caine's wanton disregard
of the environment. He sides with the
Eskimos and declares a one-man war
on Caine, who calls up his own battal-
ion of thugs.
Filmmaker Seagal (his name ap-
pears six times in the credits) borrows
from numerous earlier films, from
Dances With Wolves to Western serials.
Seagal and his Eskimo companion,
Joan Chen, race their horses through a
forest, pursued by Caine's murder-
ers. The pair arrive at a chasm. He
leaves explosives on the ledge, and
they leap their horses to the other
side. The pursuers are foiled.
The inevitable climax arrives
with Seagal's destruction of the oil
He accomplishes this after
wholesale killings of the personnel.
The film ends with Seagal's oration
in the Alaska state house about the
fragile ecosystem. (Reportedly the
speech lasted a numbing 20 minutes
in preiewsandwaslater trimmed.)
Not much can be said about the
acting in "On Deadly Ground" ex-
cept that Michael Caine seems to
delight in the unrelenting meanness
of his character. He sports a black
hair-dye job, perhaps to underscore
his villainy.
Ed Horowitz and Robin U.
Russo are credited with the script,
and Seagal shares producer credit
with Julius R Nasso and A Kitman
Ho. The most impressive aspect of
the film is Ric Waite's photography
of the magnificent Alaskan land-
scapes, a better argument for pre-
serving our natural treasures than
the movie's preachments.
A Warner Bros, release, On
Deadly Ground is Rated R for lan-
guage and excessive violence. Run-
ning time: 153 minutes, of which 11 j
minutes are credits.

sound is loud, fast and aggres-
sive, blending the brassy afterbeat
groove of ska with the uncom-
promising intensity of hard-core

sound generates enormous activ-

Bosstones' adrenalized perfor-

of the most exciting live acts in
alternative rock

Bosstones says on Simmer Down,
"Bob Marley is an artist and mu-

to be a mudslide.
Then I turned the tape over. The
near-catatonic state the first side had
left me in was shattered as From Good

jazz influence. Though the sound is
slight on side two's first track, "The

This new jazz sound picks up
on the next track, "I'm Your Man
which also shows signs of a Carlos
Sarltana on the bridge. While radically
different from anything on side one, 1
was the From Good Homes sound in
these first two tracks. With the next
song, however, the personality split
was complete.
"1 Am a Mess" is not only a
pure jazz tune complete with horns,
it's also by far the longest track on the
album. This one runs at least 10 min-
utes, with all sorts of fascinating inter-
play between the instruments and
proof of honest-to-God musicianship
on the various solos. It even takes off

For the last few years,
Patterson has spent onl y summers in
Ireland. The rest of the year he lives
in the New York suburb of Bronxville
with his wife and accompanist, Eily

Eanan, who is studying the violin at
The Juilliard School and performs
with his parents.

"We've made a lot of friends here,
through our music
the continuing popularity of clas-
sic rock radio stations is proof of
that. In spite of this, the college
music's ties to it appear to be much
looser. The age of the patrons at-
tending the show seemed proof of
this; the middle-aged jeans-and-
sneakers set greatly outnumbered
the college students. In the context
of today's alternative-dominated
charts, however, the conservative
and mild-mannered crowd came
as little surprise.
The five piece band, con-
sisting of Pete Frederick on vocals
and guitar, "Chocolate"ThomCoo-
per on vocals and guitar, Michael
Thrower on piano and organ,
Samuel Ross Earnhardt on bass and
Jeff Alford III on drums, seemed
undeterred by the small showing.
The veteran group lit into their rou-
tine with enough flair to move the
older crowd in the energetic yet
serenelv reminiscent manner that
covers of the Allman Brothers, Roll-
ing Stones, Led Zeppelin and the
Doors evoke. The band moved
quicklv through their two sets, of-
ten neglecting to pause between
songs. The omission was under-
Continued from page 8
standable, considering the satisfac-
tion of seeing the crowd smile in
recognition of a classic riff or bass
line as opposed to a vocal introduc-
tion. The only tunes that needed
such explanation were the
Stegmonds originals, and even
those were obviously influenced
by their cover selections and
blended easily into theshow. Num-
bers that stood out included the
Doors' "Peace Frog" and a stomp-
ing rendition of Led Zeppelin's
"Hot Dog
From an overall stand-
point, the crowd seemed satisfied.
They knew what they werecoming
to hear, and The Stegmonds deliv-
ered it. But, like the tuneful favor-
ites they played, their musk seemed
meant for a different generation
then the Attic is used to. The seven
years since their formation have
wrought many changes in college
music, and perhaps it has strained
the once strong ties the Stegmonds
had with downtown Greenville.
Classic rock has its audience, but
maybe it is time the Stegmonds
tried different venues through
which to contact them.
His newest album, released
in September '93, Nothing Above
My Shoulders but the Evening is a
portrayal of Lynch's feelings
about human existence.
The title is a poetic way of
saying, "If one is 'headless if the
conceptual mind (with its strate-
gies of survival) is temporarily
suspended, then one is left with
the 'evening a space in which
the depth and real meaning of
musical gestures can be more
readily perceived and felt
Lynch has previously re-
leased three other albums, The Sky
of Mind, Deep Breakfast and No
Blue Thing.
Currently, he is working on
his fifth release which he says will
take a while because he is such a
perfectionist. When asked where
he sees himself in five years, Lynch
says, "I think more of where the
music will be than where I will be
in five years. I'll still be writing
music, if I'm able. I hope the mu-
sic will become useful for more
and more people and will be lis-
tened to even 50 years from now.
My music is certainly not trendy

The 1994 Richfood-Colonial
Tournamen t begins this Sa turday,
and, as always, anything can hap-
The decision as to whether
Old Dominion or James Madison
would be the regular season cham-
pion came down to a coin flip.
Both teams had identical confer-
ence records, and both teams had
beaten the same teams through-
out the season. The Monarchs won
the toss, giving them the top seed
going into the tourney. This
matches them up against the last
place team of William & Mary.
This will be the first game on Sat-
urday at noon.
ODU comes into the tourna-
ment with a 10-4 record in the
CAA, 18-8 overall. Head coach
Oliver Purnell probably has the
most talented squad of players in
the conference. Led by sophomore
center Odell Hodge, who will
likely be CAA player of the year,
the Monarchs definitely look like
the team to beat. The 6-foot-9
Hodge was second in the CAA
in scoring, with 18.3 points a
game. He is an enormous force
inside, pulling down 8.5 re-
bounds a game, and averaging
two blocked shots per game. He
is also shooting 54 percent from
the field.
ODU also has 6-foot7 for-
ward Petey Sessoms, averaging
17.2 points a game, and shoot-
ing 42 percent from 3-point
range. With Kevin Larkin and
Kevin Swann in the backcourt,
the Monarchs are stacked in the
staring five. Their depth, on the
other hand, is a bit lacking. Los-
ing last season's CAA All-Rookie
pick Mario Mullen did not help
an already narrow roster. The
Monarchs won the CAA tour-
nament in 1992, but were upset
in the first round of last season's
CAA tournament by ECU.

agreed upon was to confer again,
black coaches and NCAA offi-

Under the auspices of fed-

hour conference call Tuesday
night, seven weeks after mem-
bers of the Black Coaches Asso-

the NCAA's refusal to restore a
14th scholarship.
"The parties had a frank ex-

schedule another session to con-

munity Relations Service, which
is now mediating the dispute.
Neither Tomalis nor the four

three mediators who participated

Knight refused to speak to most
of the media after Tuesday's game

But Knight did talk to ESPN.

new golf league for current and
former athletes.
Brett's comments come a day
after Seattle pitcher Randy
Johnson promised to give Jordan
some tight pitches should they
ever meet. Johnson also said he
was going to ask the NBA
SuperSonics for a tryout, adding
that he could probably block a
235-pounder out of the middle
better than Jordan can hit a base-
Brett talked about Jordan at
the Governor's Club golf course,
which is less than 10 miles from
where Jordan played basketball
� but not baseball � for the Uni-
versity of North Carolina.
Brett, a future Hall of Famer
with more than 3,000 hits, is
considered oneofbaseball'sbest

batting stroke when he broke
into the major leagues, cutting
down his swing and going more
to the opposite field�a method
that produced a dozen .300

vention next January, where any
changes in its rules would have
to be made.
Tomalis declined to say when
the two sides would talk again,
and whether it would be in per-
son or another conference call.
He also said both sides agreed
not to comment on the black
coaches' various grievances
against the NCAA until, if and

The Community Relations
Service, created out of civil rights
legislation in the 1960s, can at-

The East Carolinian
Purvis replaces Bonnett at Winston Cup Race
(AP) � When Jeff Purvis
takes the wheel of the No. 51
Country Time Chevrolet in less
than two weeks, it will be an ac-
complishment that would have
made his late friend Neil Bonnett
"Neil always had a lot of faith
(in me) Purvis said. "I believe
he would be glad for me
Purvis had mixed emotions
Tuesday when it was announced
he wil 1 take over the Winston Cup
ride of Bonnett, who died in a
crash last month at Daytona In-
ternational Speedway.
"We'll never get over his
loss said Purvis, 35, of
Clarksville, Tenn. "Neil and 1
were good friends, sc this gives
me an added incentive to per-
He'll get his first chance on
March 13 during the race at At-
lanta Motor Speedway.
Purvis has won 350 races in 20
years of racing but has only lim-
ited Winston Cup experience with
only eight starts in 1993. Three
were with lames Finch, who will
continue as owner of the Phoenix
Racing team, Bonnett's crew on
the No. 51 Chevy.
It was Bonnett who advised
him to make the jump into stock
ear racing's top circuit, Purvis said
Bonnett, 47, of Bessemer, Ala
had planned to enter up to six
Winston Cup races this year as he
tried to make a comeback from a
serious head injury he sustained
in a 1990 crash.
Bonnett, who won 18 Win-
ston Cup races, had become one
oi the sport's most respected tele-
vision analysts. On Feb. 11, he was
killed when his car hit the fourth-
turn wall on the 2 1, 2-mile oval
during the opening practice tor
the Daytona 500.
The deal announced Tuesday
calls for Purvis to run in eight
Winston Cup races and seven
Grand National races. The deal
with sponsor Country Time cov-
ers only the 1994 season.
Finch and Purvis have raced
together in other circuits for more
than a decade.
"1 knew Neil would want us
to carrv on and his son, David, to
carry on Finchsaid. "Webelieve
Neil would haveapproved of Jeff's
selection and encouraged us to
continue with our NASCAR
plans he said.
Joel I lenrv of Country Time
said Purvis was the logical choice.
When a driver keepsa strong
affiliation with the same team for
more than 10 vears, there must be
a chemistry that has produced a
formula for success he said.
"James Finch and Jeff Purvis have
that chemistry
Purvis also plans to enter both
races this year atTalladega as well
as events in Charlotte, Michigan,
Davtona, Phoenix and the history-
making first Winston Cup race at
Indianapolis Motor Speed way on
Aug. 6.
"We're dedicating this season
to Neil Bonnett he said. "Weare
going to work as hard as any team
out there. We feel we can win
some of these races

be an easy task for the Tribe.
Coached by Chuck Swenson,
W&M finished an abysmal 2-12 in
the CAA, and 4-22 overall. The
two conference wins however,
came against UNC-Wilmington
and East Carolina, showing that
the Tribe are capable of playing
good basketball in this conference.
William & Mary is led by jun-
ior guard Kurt Small, averaging
15.7 points per game this season.
A pleasant surprise for the Tribe
this season has been the play of
sophomore David Cully, who is
leading the conference in both re-
bounds, with 8.8 per game, and
blocked shots, with 2.6 per game.
The Tribe will have their hands
full with ODU, especially consid-
ering that Purnell will have last
season's first round upset loss on
his mind.
Game two matches up the
fourth-ranked Spiders of Rich-
mond (8-6 in the CAA, 13-13 over-
all) against the Pirates (7-7 in the
CAA, 15-11 overall), last year's
tournament champions.
UR head coach Bill Dooley
turned up the heat late in the sea-
son, winning eight of his last 11
games. The Spiders are led by
guards Kass Weaver, shooting 55
percent from the field, and senior
Gerald Jarmon. The leading scorer
for Richmond is senior forward
Mike Hodges, averaging 15.3
points and 7.5 rebounds per game.
Richmond will have the home
court advantage over ECU, win-
ning 25 of 34 games played against
the Pirates in the Virginia capital,
13 in a row. The Spiders have also
won all three meetings against
ECU in CAA Tournament history.
The two teams split in the regular
Winning last year'sC A A tour-
nament was a monumental step
towards success this season for
ECU head coach Eddie Payne and
his Pirates. Finishing in fifth place
might not have been what Pirate
fans had been hoping for this sea-
son, but ECU did achieve only
their second winning season in 11
years. The Pirates started hot this
season at 9-3, but hit a down spot
soon after, losing five of their next
seven games. ECU got a big over-
time win against first-round op-
ponent Richmond in Minges Coli-
seum, but that win might be over-
shadowed by late-season losses to
ODU, JMU and UNC-W going into
the tournament.
The Pirates are led by pre-
season conference MVP Lester
Lyons, averaging 16.6 points per
game, and shooting 85 percent
from the free-throw line. The Pi-
rate senior has been a force on
defense this season, and so have
fellow seniors Curlev Young and
Wilbert Hunter. ECU is 13-2 this
season when holding opponents
under 75 points. Center Anton Gill
has stepped up his game in the
second half of the season, push-
ing his average up to 14.2 points
per game and 6.3 rebounds per
Game three of the first round
matches up second placeJMU(10-
4 in theC A A, 17-9 overall) against
the Eagles of American Univer-
sity (5-9 in the CAA, 8-18 overall).
The Dukes are led bv senior
forward Clayton Ritter, averag-
ing 17.9 points per game, and
shooting 63.5 percent trom the
field. Guard Kent Culuko has also
played extremely well this season
for the Dukes, averaging 17.3
points per game and shooting 46
percent from 3-point range.
The Eagles of American are
led by former high school team-
mates at Chantillv High School in
Fairfax, Va. Both Tim Fudd and
Darrvl Franklin played for the
Chargersof Chantillv before team-
ing up in nearby Washington, DC.
to play for coach Chris Knoche
and American. Fudd is the CAA
leader in scoring with 18.9 points
per game. Franklin is one of the
best 3-point shooters in the con-
ference, with an average of 43 per-
cent on the season. The Eagles
pulled off big upsets this season
against Old Dominion, James
Madison and Richmond.
The final game of the first
round will pit the third-place
Seaha wks of U NC-Wi lmington (9-
5 in theC A A, 16-9 overall) against
the Patriots of George Mason (5-9
in the CAA, 10-16 overall).
UNC-W is coached by Kevin
Eastman, who has made the most
of his team this season, despite
their lack of speed and size. The
Seahawks plaved an inconsistent
second half of the season, beating
teams such as ODU and Ameri-
can, and then losing three in a row
to William & Mary, Old Domin-
ion, and Richmond.
The Patriots of GMU have
made significant improvements
this season under new head coach
Paul Westhead. GMU upset Rich-
mond earlier this year, and have
one of the quickest backcourts in
the CAA with Troy Manns and
Donald Ross. Manns has led the
CAA in assists all season long
while Ross has led the team in
scoring with 17 1 pointst jrgame.
The Patriots fast-paced style may
provoke havoc in the tournament,
especially against the much slower
Seahawks of UNC-W.
The tournament holds many
possibilities within itself. One
thing that is certain is that this
year's CAA tournament will be
one of the most dramatic ever,
with just about any team in the
conference capable of pulling off
some upsets.
Just ask East Carolina.

fascinated by Nancy Kerrigan and
Tonya Harding and thewholeNancv
Kerrigan story that she can do no
wrong right now said Kim Bartel,
an assistant professor of mass com-
munications and public relations at
Boston University.
Even before she was attacked
Jan. 6 at the U.S. Figure Skating
Championships in Detroit, Kerrigan
had promotional contracts with
Reebok shoes and Campbell soup.
As she recovered from her injuries
and as the attack was linked to the

next-door image was enhanced.
She signed a contract worth a
reported $2 mill ion wi th VVaJ t Disnev

Kerrigan's silver medal was ex-

When she was told, mistakenly,
that the medal ceremony had been
delayed because Baiul was redo-

In interviews in the following

questioned the judges for not de-

She left Norway before the
closing ceremonies to attend the

Disney officials said the parade
could havebeen held another day.
Callers to radio talk shows began
voicing theirdisenchantment with
Kerrigan and newspaper colum-

But none of this is enough to
destroy her image�or scare away

The Anatomy of the Citibank
Classic card: a body of services and peace of mind
for students, now with No Annual Fee. For years, scientists could only
theorize about the Citibank Classic Visa� card, unable to actually observe anything below its epidermal
surface (i.e. the plastic). Surely the highly intelligent services were evidence of an advanced brain. But with
the latest advances in x-ray technology, and when the light could catch the various parts just so, it was
confirmed: the Citibank Classic Visa card is head to toe more evolved than ever imagined. H At its
backbone are 3 services to cover the purchases you make on the card. Starting at the Lower Costal Spine,
we see Citibank Price Protection can assure you of the best price. All you have to do is discover the same
item advertised in print for less, within 60 days, and
Citibank will refund the difference up to $150' Along
the Oops-It-Slipped Disc, Buyers Security� can
cover those purchases against accidental damage, fire
or theft, for 90 days from the date of purchase1; and
Citibank Lifetime Warranty� allows one to extend
the warranty for the expected service life of eligible
Scientists theorize that the mind of the Citibank Classic Visa
cardmember (Fig. A) is secure because it receives superior products Up to 12 years2. So if yOU ever buy a Walkman,
service; the mind of the non-Citibank Classic Visa cardmember
(Fig.B) is not secure because-couldit be?-it has a screw loose? a stereo, whatever, it will be reassuring to know that
Citibank can bend and be flexible while still lending support. H The backbone is then connected to the
cranium or headbone. Look at the bottom of the page. The Citibank Photocard has the head of the
cardholder, as well as his or her own signature, right on the front. That way, it will help prevent fraud. It will
also make a good form of ID, since you get to choose your own photo. H But what about the Nervous
System? The fact is, it doesn't have one, not in the spinal cord nor in the brain. What it has is the Very Calm
System. Because even if your credit xard gets stolen, or gets lost, an involuntary muscle called the
Extendus Anewcardeus activates the Lost Wallet� Service which can replace your card usually within
24 hours. 1 As suspected, there's another involuntary muscle: the heart�a beating and caring heart, big
enough to give students special discounts and savings. You'll receive a $20 Airfare Discount on domestic
flights3; savings on mail order purchases, sports equipment, magazines and music; a low variable interest
rate of 15.44; and, No Annual Fee. (In other words, the card itself doesn't cost a forelimb and a
hindlimb.) H Naturally the heart of the Citibank Visa card pumps life and personalized customer service
into all its parts, 24 hours a day. So no matter what the question you might have concerning your card,
you need only call the 800 number. You'll find Citibank has a neck they are eager to stick out for you. They
will always lend an ear. Or a hand. They will keep an eye out for you. They will put their best foot forward.
Etc. H So call to apply. You don't need a job or a cosigner. And
call if you'd like your photo added to your regular Citibank
Classic Visa card. The number is 1-800-CITIBANK
