ECU'S Teaching Program wins nat'l award

ECU Chancellor Richard Eakin, Dr. Betty Beacham and three interns
show their obvious pride at the recent success of ECU's MCTP.

The faculty knew it. The
students knew it. However, it
took a national competition to
prove to the rest of the country
just how impressive a teaching
education from ECU can be.
"It feels really good to be
number one said Dr. Betty
Beacham, director of ECU's
School of Education Model
Clinical Teaching Program
(MCTP). The program com-
peted against schools from
across the nation and was se-
lected as one of the three final-
ists to give a presentation at the
Association of Teacher Educa-
tors (ATE) conference in At-
lanta, Ga last month.
ECU's MCTP left its first
competition victorious after
edging out the University of
Texas and the University of
"Our success says that
we are the best in the nation,
that we are the cutting edge and
that we have the potential for
being a national model in how
we prepare teachers Beacham
In order to become a final-
ist, the ECU's MCTP had to sub-
mit a 25-page report, prepared
by Beacham, on "every facet of

He said that the problem was

Naked man gets no laughs
Twenty years ago, students and professors erupted in laughter
when streakers dashed Lnandoutof classrooms. Times have changed.
Several faculty members from the College of Journalism and Com-
munication at the University of Florida expressed outrage after a
naked man burst into an advertising classroom, loudly identified
himself as "Batman" and beat a hasty retreat, the Independent Florida
Alligator reported. Professor Sallie Middlebrook, who was teaching
the class, said she did not apprecia te the interruption He spread his
arms and legs and said, 'Batman she said. "I was standing there in

Hazing alive on campuses; one student dead
Michael Davis hoped that one day he might win a Pulitzer Prize
for reporting, a dream that was tragically cut short by a beating
allegedly administered by his own fraternity brothers. Davis, 25, a
junior in journalism at Southeast Missouri State University, died Feb.
15 of blunt trauma to the head. Kappa Alpha Psi pledges told police
that Davis had collapsed while running through a gauntlet of punches
it a football field. Family members said it was not the first time Davis
had been beaten, and they begged the young man to give up pledging
before the incident. As of Feb. 23, seven fraternity members had been
charged with involuntary manslaughter and hazing, three others
face hazing charges and six alumni fraternity members face hazing
charges. University President Kala Stroup ordered the Kappa Alpha
Psi chapter permanently banned from campus.
Education Department OKs use of race-based scholarships
Colleges and universities may use race-based scholarships to
remedy past discrimination or diversify their student bodies, Educa-
tion Secretary Richard Riley said Feb. 17. "We want the doors to post
secondary education to remain open for minority students he said.
"This policy helps to achieve that goal in a manner that is consistent
with the law Unlike other minority scholarships, for which any
minority student is eligible, race-specific scholarships provide finan-
cial aid for a targeted minority group only. University administra-
tors and the NAACP say race-based scholarships are important to
promote diversity on campuses.

was the struggle in Northern Ire-

The blast Carolinian 3
Studies done to examine coastal community concerns
By Mike Walker
Staff Writer
Oil and ga. remain some of
the most valuable commodities to
the United States. In order to re-
trieve the oil and gas tha t we need,
pockets of the substances must be
located and then drilled. How-
ever, since the Exxon Valdez ran
aground in Alaska, many people
have been distrustful of oil and
gas drilling. Certainly, many
people do not want it done near
the area in which thev live.
In order to find out how
people feel about possible oil and
gas drilling in their area, the fed-
eral government performs socio-
logical studies. Often, the govern-
ment will request universities to
have people in a specific depart-
ment conduct the study, which is
what a team of researchers from
ECU, led by Dr. John R. Maiolo,
did this past year.
administration, many piK'kets of
substantial amounts of oil and gas
were found off the coast of North
Carolina. The site, know n as the
"Manteo Prospect is 2,690 feet
deep and is 38 mi les off the coasti it
With the aid of the Depart-
ment of the Interior, the federal
government set up "lease blocks"
which were to be bought by oil
companies. The first set of blocks
wasboughtby Mobil of the South-
east oil company. Before an oil
company can start drilling, itmust
explore and examine the area of
the oil and gas po kefs. In order to
do this, the company must secure
a permit to explore.
During the administration
of Gov. Jim Martin, Mobil decided
it wanted to secure a permit to
explore the area However, Mar-
tin objected to Mobil securing a
permit and worked with several
Senators to withhold the permit
from Mobil, invoking the Oil Pol-
lution Act of L990.
The act had a rider on it that
required an independent review-
panel to examine the consequences
of exploration in the case of an acci-
dent. Die state also found that in-
formation on economic dependen-
cies and historical information on
North Carolina's coastal counties
wasdeficient iheU.S. Department
of Interior's Minerals Management
Service selected a panel from the
sociology department ot ECU. The
members in the department are spe-
cialists in marine development
Maiolo netted that the sociol-
ogy department of ECU has a very
good reputation and that the De-
partmentof Interior wanted ECU to
conduct the study. Some graduate
students that started at ECU were
asked if thev wanted to help with
the project and every one of them
got involved.
The group from ECU was
called in the summer of 1992 and
were asked to put together a pro-
posal to address concerns of the
coastal community. The staff mem-
bers from ECU that were involved
are Dr. John Maiolo, Edward W.
Glazier, Belinda Blinkoff, Barbara
Garrity Blake, Cindy Harper and
Mym Young. Maiolo directed the
study with Dr. John S. Petterson,
president of 1 mpact Assessment Inc.
Impact Assessment Inc. also stud-
ied the effects of the 1989 Exxon
Valdez spill.
According to the final execu-
tive summary laid out bv Maiolo's
team, the purpose of the studv was
the following: "The Coastal North
Carolina Socioeconomic Studv is
designed to collect, analyze and dis-
seminate information about socio-
economic and sociocultural condi-
tions along those portions ot the
North Carolina coast susceptible to
the potential effects of exploratory
drilling at the Manteo prospect
Maiolo laid out fiveobjectives
that his group had. The objectives
were: one, to get the most complete
report on coastal counties, two, find
all infrastructure problems, like
roadways, three, determine what
the communitv organizations ,md
relationships are like, tour, to make
an aesthetic risk survey which
would rank the concerns the citi-
zens have and five, to develop a
program for the coastal counties to
monitor any changes in those areas.
Maiolo's group worked for IS
months on the project. They had
field stations inC.loucester.l latteras,
Manteo and Ocracoke. The head-
in Morehead Citv. The group would
ma ke a report to the federa 1 govern-
menteach month outlining the work
accomplished and thecost involved.
The money then given to them for
the costs came from the fee that
Mobil paid for the permit to ex-
"1 think just mailing expenses
were $13,000 Maiolo said. After
the project was completed this fall,
the group submitted a 1,300-page
document to tine Department ot In-
terior. "The collection of informa-
tion is the most comprehensive and
in-depth study of a portion of the
North Carolina coast that has ever
been done Maiolo said.
In a previous interview,
Maiolo noted how valuable the ECU
report will be in the future. "Re-
gardless ot whether or not explora-
tion occurs offshore, the report pro-
vides government and industry
with information to help in devel-
opment and planning for many
years to come he said.
Even though the project took
a long time and was a verj tedious
task, Maiolo had only one thing to
say about it. "It was a lot of fun
Maiolo's group ranked the
overall concerns the citizens had
about the coastal regions. Maiolo
noted that off-shore drilling was a
concern of the citizens, but tha t other
concerns outranked it. He said that
over development concerns prima-
rily prevailed in many of the coun-
Maiolo believes that the dan-
gets to the physical environment
during exploration will be mini-
mal. The only problem he sees is
that there will be some interruption
in commercial fishing. "They're
probably going to get a permit
Maiolo said.
It Mobil isgranted a permitto
start exploration of the area, a ship
will go to the site and will anchor
there tor 114 days. In that time, the
crew will drill into someof the pock-
ets to test the oil and gas. The crew
working on the ship would be
housed in Morehead City. If useful
oil and gas is found, Mobil will then
have to check theamountofoi and
gas that there is and determine the
risks oi production. If everything is
approved, and Mobil is granted
permission to produce the oil and
gas, the entire refinery would be
located in Norfolk, Vir. Therefore,
the economic impact on North
Carolina would be minimal.
Maiolo admits that there are
risks in exploration. He notes that
the Exxon Valdez spill made people
concerned about oil drilling.
"There are a lot of people
who depend on those waters being
pristine Maiolo said. "This is the
kind of thing people worry about,
and I can't blame them
Mobil must, bv law, be pre-
pared for accidents and must have
emergenev procedures outlined.
But, Maiolo did note that Exxon
had to have emergency proce-
dures before the Exxon Valdez
disaster, and company officials still
failed to act when they should
have. If the exploration does start,
an emergency response team
would be based in Morehead City.
On the point of whether or
not to give the permit to Mobil,
Maiolo had only one thing to say.
"1 can tell you, I'm glad I'm not in
the position to make that decision
Ah to his opinion n whether
or not offshore drilling should oc-
cur off the coast of the outer banks,
Maiolo refused to comment. "Our
job is only to go out there and
identify the concerns he said.
Maiolo noted that the report
that his group submitted was as
unbiased as it could possibly get.
He didn't want any opinions on
the subject to interfere with their
task. Maiolo even made it clear to
his staff that hedidn't want to know
their opinions.
This is not the first time that
Dr. Maiolo has been involved in a
project like this. He sees projects
like these as ways to bring in sup-
port money for the university that
he is working for.
Maiolo has taught at sev era
schools and has brought in a total
of 525,000,000 to those schools, in-
cluding ECU.

To think or not to think, that is the question
As journalists and educated people,
sometimes we just have to throw up our
hands and not say anything. To repsond to
some of the material that finds its way across
our desks may be difficult because of it's
unbelievability or infuriating and frustrat-
ing qualities. The recent censorship of both
an Alice Walker and an Annie Dillard story
is one such issue that had to be set aside a
few days before it could be commented on.
The tests are part of a new California
curriculum introduced into the public edu-
cation system for tenth graders. They in-
volve reading and essay questions, and are
designed to prepare students to be economi-
cally and socially successful. In essence,
students have to reason, analyze and com-
municate on a sophisticated level, so as to
convey a point. In other words, these tests
aren't about regurgitating material.
Censorship is itself a sticky topic � up
there with racism, inner-city violence and
welfare reform. But it would seem that in a
country that was founded on the beliefs of a
people discriminated against, who fled parts
of Europe to escape the intolerance and
voice their ideals that they so believed in,
would tolerate the varying thoughts that
makes America so unique. When the protest
becomes nit-picky and illogical, that makes
the debate even more frustrating.
This particular problem lies deep in
California's rising influence of Christian fun-
damentalists and conservatives in the edu-
cational department, where many people
are against teaching evolution and gay
rights. In the 1992-3 school year alone, Cali-
fornia cited 29 censorship incidents. Unfor-
tunately, this phenomena is not isolated to
California alone. It's ironic that liberal Califor-
nia must endure this, when our own ECU has a
homosexual literature class. (Jesse Helms, be-
It seems that these people don't want us
thinking unattended. Perhaps they believe
that we should all live the same, miserable
lives not unlike that scene in Joe Versus the
Volcano where terribly unhappy people
trudge to their jobs in a factory that uses life-
sucking flourescent lighting. For them and
for us, thinking would only prove hazard-
ous, don't you know.
It's an anxiety, really. To cite an instance,
in Alice Walker's "Roselily" � one of the
stories censored � the protagonist describes
a preacher as "odious" and "wants to hit
him Beverly Sheldon, wife of Lou Sheldon,
founder of the Traditional Values Coalition,
is quoted as charging that the passage is
clergy-bashing and that the statements didn't
need to be in the story.
Another instance is a Walker story titled
"Am I Blue?" wherein a woman, revolted by
cruelty to a horse, spits out a bite of steak.
The Traditional Values Coalition believes that
a child will read this and come home and
vomit at the dinner table.
These religious-right fundamentalists re-
ally need to examine their seeming excep-
tional home-life, if they truly believe that
what is offered in the schools will alter their
child's life in an adverse way. You'd think
people firm in their family values would
have nothing to fear from schoolteachers.
Except these particular people don't want
anyone inflicting their beliefs on their kids.

It is very tempting, as a

to believe his protestations of

lost his virtue, it is quite diffi-

What I would like to see
by all parties, and hope to con-
tribute to myself as best I can,
is a more reasoned and intelli-
gent debate. Rather than hurl-
ing labels and invective, let us
assume that the American
people are capable of thinking
for themselves if both sides
are presented intelligently.
I noticed a perfect ex-
ample of hiding behind labels
this past week. The North

in our public schools by get-

But it is the path we must take if
our democratic experiment is to
succeed. If we continue on our
present course, politics will be-
come increasingly demagogic
and our republic is doomed to
eventual tyranny.
Many doubt that the
United States could ever become
a dictatorship. Unfortunately
Americans are just as prone to
human weaknesses as any other
nationality. History has repeat-
edly shown that men prefer
peace and stability to freedom.
The two best examples are
the Roman Republic and
Weimer Germany. When civil
disorder and strife brought
chaos to Roman society, the
masses willingly embraced the
authoritarian dictatorship of the
Caesars, rather than live in such

had an unparalleled hatred of

likely here. Like the United

would permit unprecedented

Too many people believe

Bobby Knight perfects the temper tantrum
Hey, ever hear the one
about Mike Krzyzewski, Dean
Smith and Bob Knight? Well,af-
ter passing on and arriving at
the pearly gates of heaven, they
meet Saint Peter who asks each
of them why they should be al-
lowed to enter the Kingdom of
Heaven. Krzyzewski and Smith
orate their impressive and leg-
endary accounts of good deeds
both professionally and person-
ally, and upon completion, the
gates open and they are allowed
to enter. When the angelic saint
turns to Bob Knight and asks
the same question, Knight re-
plies, "Because I can! Now tell
the Big Man to get outta my
Laugh if you must, but af-
ter Knight's latest incident of
head butting freshman Sherron
Wilkerson, publicly humiliating
him in front of all the world and
God, you start to wonder if
Knight himself believes he has
some omnipotent power that he
can use and abuse as he sees fit.
And why shouldn't he? Over
the years, we have seen Bob
Knight pound tables so hard as
to disconnect phone lines, use
whips as props on his players,
slap his players, kick his play-
ers, swear at his players, toss his
players, (along with a few
chairs), and now, head butt his
players. And what has been the
punishment? Only a mere slap
on the hand in the form of a fine
here and there, or possibly, if
there is really enough outcry, a
one- or two-game suspension.
Given all the horrific incidents,
it makes you wonder why on
earth Indiana officialsdon't just
fire this jerk.
Bryan Burwell, a sports
commentator for USA Today,
seems to agree. In his column,
he says that "a responsible coach
ought to recognize when he's
accidentally crossed the line.
Knight has crossed the line so
often, he is no longer capable of
distinguishing authority from
abuse Evidence of this can be
seen on any post-game inter-
view as Knight, instead of try-
ing to convey an apology of any
kind, explains and justifies his
actions as part of his technique.
Do you think it has ever occurred
to Bob Knight that there are a
number of esteemed coaches out
there with just as many titles
and trophies who do not use the
techniques of humiliation and
abuse? Gosh, how do they do
Now, however, we are left
with questioning the not-so-ob-
vious. Are the Indiana officials
intimidated by Bob Knight? Are
they on a payroll? Or perhaps,
off the court, Bob Knight is
really this caring, loving, en-
couraging, supportive, teddy
bear that to fire him would
just break his heart. Further-
more, I know from experience
growing up in the midwest,
that if you aren't a coach of
some sort, the only way to
carry out your frustrations is
to go out and pull corn stalks
or count fence posts. So maybe
all these incidents are just ac-
cidents of frustration.
Unfortunately, only a se-
lect few know the answers to
these questions and the rest
of us are left watching this
supposedly responsible adult
subject his players to the re-
sults of a temper tantrum I
thought only my two-year-old
had perfected. Finally, we never
see any hint of remorse,
repentence, or even the slight-
est acknowledgement of judge-
ment error. Like Burnwell, I
believe enough is enough.
Many coaches have been fired
for a lot less and it's time In-
diana University fire Bob
By the way, if Coach
Knight does make it to the
pearly gates, I hope he re-
members what happened to
the last guy who tried to get
the Big Man outta His chair.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am writing in response to a letter, written by
David Richmond, which your paper printed on 17 Feb-
ruary 1994 which attacked Walter Jones Jr. for switching
parries, etc.
Walter Jones, Jr. will be the first person to tell you
that becoming a Republican "was the second best deci-
sion I ever made- the first and best decision was marry-
ing my wife Joe Anne Mr. Richmond actsas if Mr. Jones
switched parties in the "dead of night" as though he was
ashamed. Guess again. In truth, Jones has traveled the
state trying to win other conservative Democrats and
Independents to the Republican Party.
Mr. Richmond then goes on to attack Mr. Jones for
his change of religious affiliation when he was a young
man in his twenties. This is totally absurd. I bet half of the
people in America start out as a Baptist, Methodist, or
Catholic � and along the way ended up in another sect
The important thing about Walter Jones, Jr. is that he is
a dedicated Christian, a fine and moral man who sup-
ports family values and believes in ethical behavior for
elected officials.
Also of great note is the fact that Walter Jones, Jr.
has been praised for "living his beliefs His personal
conduct and dedication to good government have even
been applauded by the Neziv and Observer� easily the
most liberal paper in the state. They said he was one if the
best proponents of good government in North Carolina
General Assembly.
Then Mr. Richmond attacked Mr. Jones for being
in his father's will. Is being in a will a crime? No! Walter
Jones, Jr. inherited a part of his late father's estate. Mr.
Jones has stated repeatedly to the press that the money
from that went Into his business and to his daughter's
To call this inheritance from his late father's
estate PAC money is a pitiful attempt to make Mr.
Jones appear to beapawn of special of special interests
groups and lobbyists � and boy, that would make
Raleigh lobbyists roll their eyes, choke on their steak
dinners and laugh out loud � considering that Walter
Jones, Jr. was the legislator who fought like a man
possessed to reform the lobbying regulations in the
North Carolina General Assembly. To say that Mr.
Jones angered a few lobbyists is a Great Understate-
Poor Mr. Richmond. He is uninformed, he ap-
. pears to distort the facts�and obviously is being fed
a great deal of "bunk" by some people who are very
afraid of Walter Jones, Jr. being the next Congressman
for the 3rd Congressional District.
I wonder why anyone would want to throw
mud at Walter? Fortunately the voters know why Mr.
Richmond wants to and knows who is behind these
sad attempts to take the focus off of Martin Lancastor
sic and his "puppy dog" devotion to the majority of
the Clinton Administration's policies.

To the Editor:
There are no great solutions to the parking prob-
lem. However, two of the worst ideas should be rejected.
The first offender is one Parking Committee's
proposal to add the bill for thecost of a parking deck into
student fees. This is making the poor (who can't afford to
have a car) subsidize the rich and the environmentally
active (those who bicycle, ride the bus, etc.) not only
breathe the pollution, but pay for the place to park the
death machines. If ECU minority students have lower
car-ownership rates, minority students would be more
likely to have to pay for someone else's parking space!
Thus, for economic, environmental and ethical reasons,
the above mentioned policy should be dropped imme-
The second worst "solution" is the proposal by
Danny Amaro, Director of Student Housing. I don't
know the exact details, but basically, the proposal calls
for not allowing freshmen to park by the colesium sic,
renaming some spaces on College Hill, now labeled
"Resident" to the name "Premium" then charging
more money for the parking stickers.
The keen reader will have noticed two things
about the policy just mentioned: 1) there is noconstruc-
tion of new parking spaces (although there will seem to
be, for those whoqualify to shell out thecash) and 2) the
university will receive much more money by merely
renaming the existing spaces. I don't know if the
"thinker" behind this plan is a fool or merely a crook,
but 1 think either shouldn't have a position within this

collectively known as The
Proclaimers, released their first al-
bum, This is The Story, back in
1987, which was a big European
hit. With a little help from a one-

Housemartins, they established a
large fan base early on.
Then in 1488 their second
album produced the international
hit "I'm Gonna Be (500 miles) In
1993, Mary Stewart Masterson saw

the movie Benny and foon, making
it a hit once again, except bigger

Writer reflects on Holocaust
NEW YORK (AP) � Aharon
Appelfeld was born in 1932 in a
Romanian village later annexed by
the Soviet Union and now part of
Moldavia. The author's parents,
assimilated Jews, spoke German.
His grandparents spoke Yiddish,
the neighbors mostly Ruthenian or
At age 7, Appelfeld was de-
ported to a concentration camp.
He soon escaped, wandered the
Ukrainian countryside for three
years, and finished tine war both an
orphan and a refugee. Since arriv-
ing on a Tel Aviv beach in 194b, he
has lived in Israel writing his books
in Hebrew.
Appelfeld neither considers
himself a German writei, nor a
Ruthenian, Romanian or Ukrainian
writer. It would be incorrect to call
him a Soviet w liter, or, more
broadly, a Western writer. Even
(.ailing him an Israeli writer some-
how misses what he thinks of as his
true nationality.
"I am he says simply, 'a Jew-
ish writer "
In some JObooks over the past
three decades, Appelfeld has fol-
lowed two seemingly irreconcil-
able principles. One is you cannot

other the Holocaust must not be

Boston cuts parade
BOSTON (AP) � Homosexu-
als won the right to march in this
city's St. Patrick's Day parade � if
there is a parade.
The traditional sponsor of the
90-year-old parade, the South Bos-
ton Allied War Veterans Council,
said after Friday's ruling that it
would sit out rather than march
with gavs and lesbians
Mayor Thomas Menino said
there's not enough time for anyone
else to organize the March 20 pa-
rade, which draws more than
10,000 marchers annually.
"I feel I have no other recourse
but to tell the people of Boston
there will notbea parade Menino
He said a St. Patrick's Day cel-
ebration would be held March 17
at City Hall Plaza instead.
The veterans council will ap-
peal Friday's Supreme Judicial
Court ruling to the U.S. Supreme
Court, claiming violation of its right
to tree speech, spokesman John
Hurley said.
The state's high court upheld
without comment an injunction
issued in December, when a judge
ruled that the parade wasa place of
public accommodation where dis-
crimination based on sexual orien-
tation was illegal.
"It's a shame for the en tire I rish
community that the parade will
not go ahead because of bigotry of

bers of a homosexual group that
had planned to march.

lesbians marched under court or-
In a similar case involving the
New York City parade, a federal
judge ruled last year that the An-
cient Order of Hibernians did not
have to include a group of march-
ers with contradictory beliefs.
Blackwell sings of opera career
NEW YORK (AP) � At the
Metropolitan Opera's opening night
of "A Masked Ball" in 1990, Luciano
Pavarotti gave coloratura Harolyn
Blackwell a scarf for good luck.
"It pictures a little boy, as if he's
in a circus Blackwell said about
what has become her lucky charm.
The scarf was appropriate because
Oscar, sung by the 5 foot 1 colora-

Pavarotti's role.Oscar became
Blackwell's signature role. But with
her stellar appearance last month as
Marie in the Met's premier perfor-
mance of The Daughter of the Regi-
ment, Blackwell has another charm-
ing role under her belt.
"I said to someone that I feel
lie a child who is just opening
doors and discovering more and
more she said in an interview. "I
realize how much I don't know and
how much I have to keep opening
doors to learn about my craft, about
being an artist. I didn' t go through' I
know everything' because I started
late in the business and had to learn
so much
"I was very shy she said. "My
first voice teacher introduced mu-
sic to me. It was the first time I could
open up and communicate and not
be shy. I remember being in a cho-
rus, about the fourth grade. I
walked on stage and I felt at home.
Somehow, I could find something
about Harolyn in the music I was
singing. Happy or sad, I could ex-
press my emotions instead of keep-
ing them to myself
Blackwell, who had been si gned
to sing two performances of
Donizetti's Daughter of the Regiment,
stepped in to do all seven perfor-
mances of the season after the Met

She went to New York and was

that she gave a recital and got her

She did West Side Story, on

Bang On A Can music goes uptown
NEW Y( )RK (AP) � The Bang
on a Can Festival, the celebration of
avant-garde classical music that be-
gan ina scruffy downtownneighbor-
hood, has been invited uptown to tine
starched precincts of Lincoln Center.
The three young compiserswho
started the program in 1987, Michael
Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe,
didn't immediately jump at the invi-
"Sevenyearsagowe would have

acknowledgement the world is ready
for this weird, exciting, strange and
powerful music.
"Lincoln Center is a symbol in
our country for culture and we feel
that the music we're presenting
should have the same status as Suun
Lake or La Boheme. We believe new
music is a hugely undervalued part
of our culture
On Mother's Day in 1987, the
three composers persuaded an art
gallery to let them set up folding
chairs. "Davidsold ticketsatthedcxir,
then ran around backstage and
handed the money to me Gordon
recalls. "As musicians walked off, I
would pay them. I set up the stage.

The three claim they don't
present the farthest-out music they
can find.

unknowns, underserved, undiscov-
ered � to play a lot of music you
can't find anywhere else
The Bang on a Can All-Stars
scheduled two concerts this season
in Lincoln Center's Walter Reade
Theater, in early March and April 11.
The eight-hour festival will be
Mother's Day in Alice Tully Hall.
Last year, 3(X) compositions
were submitted for the festival.
Wolfe, Lang and Gordon, all in
their 30s, were all graduatestudents
at the Yale School of Music, where
there were concerts of new music
from 10 at night till 8 a.m.
"Then we came to New York
Gordon says. "The scene seemed
kind ofdead.Composersdidn't talk
to each other
Wolfe says uptown music fea-
tured established composers and
downtown it was mostly improvi-
sation. "Both camps wore black,
tuxes uptown and grungy black
that much fun
They didn't like the uptown
audiences and the downtown
group's suspicion of anyone who
wrote notes on pa per and used mu-
sic stands.
"A lot of our generation fell in
the cracks Wolfe says. "We wrote
music with rhythmic energy and
influencesof world music, pop, rock
and jazz. Unlike jazz, every note is
written out
But there were some things in
both worlds they liked.
Downtown concerts were in-
formal. "You could have a drink
I angsays'Tourrughtactuallycheer
(he performance. What we liked up-
town was, you were supposed to
listen very carefully; there wassome-
thing exalted and powerful going on
in front of you
The three decided to put on a
Yale-typeall-night concert. Asa joke,
they called it, "the first annual Bang
on a Can Festival
Gordon says they invited com-
posers to participate but could otter
them no money.
"Nobody wanted to play at 4 or
5 a.m so we started at 2 p.m. and
ended at 2 a.m he says. "Some
fairly well-known composers took
part � John Cage, Steve Reich,
Milton Babbitt and PaulineOliveros.
"We got a gallery in Soho to
sponsorit. Wehad 5(X)people. It was
an amazing success and we were
really excited because we made a
concert we really liked.
' 'We had a feisty a udience. They
were screaming � a non-classical
It used to be, Lang says, that
people interested in culture wanted
to know the latest artist, composer
and film person. Now, he says,
people specialize.
Gordon says they devise pro-
grams to bri ng in people who aren' t
frequent concertgoers.
And they'd like to inspire
somebody to create the greatest
music in the world � and to pro-
vide a place for it to be performed.
"Thegeneration of composers
after World War II accepted the
idea they belonged in universities
he says. "Their music was for a
small group. No one else could
understand what they weredoing.
"We're entering a new era in
the history of music. All of a sud-
den many people are interested in
adventurous music
Gordon says Beethoven was
avant-garde in his time and many
critics said hismusicwasugly, loud,
brash and bombastic.
"Who knows what's going to
happen toadventurousmusic in 50
and 100 years? We've got some
young Beethovens here he says.

Ten Appelfeld novels, among
Wonders, have been translated into
English. They are spare in style
and stark in subject, driven by the
difference between how the world
is and how people wish it to be.
They tell of characters who long
for hometowns that have changed
forever, wait for loved ones who
aren't returning, scorn the religion
by which the rest of society has
defined them.
The author's most recent novel
to come out in the United States,
Unto the Soul, is another "Before"
book, taking place at the turn of the
century. It tells of Jewish siblings,
brother Gad and sister Amalia, who
have retreated to a mountaintop in
eastern Europe and live in a civili-
zation all their own.

They excavated a 40- year-old

this. These guys are somewhere in

overs, free-throws, anda lossof com-
posure that cost us
The Pirates jumped early on
UR. Feeding the ball into center
Anton Gill, who scored 23 points,
was the key to ECU breaking out to
a seven-point lead in the first few
minutes of play. ECU did a good job
of holding Kass Weaver and Gerald
Jarmon, who usually run rapid over
the Pirites, to just two points total.
This was due in part to the fine
defensive play of seniors Lester Ly-
ons (14 points) and Curley Young
(two points). Two players who the
Pirates failed to stop however, were
Mike Hodges (22 points) and fresh-
man guard Damon Bacote, who
came off of the bench to score 17
The Spiders pulled ahead late
in the first half. UR went ahead by
seven on a pair of free throws by
Bacote, making the score 27-20 with

The eve of the CAA tourna-

was just hours away
from beginning.
With such a drama tic
and unpredictable
regular season be-
hind them, the CAA
all-conference play-
ers and coaches
awards were an-
nounced to an anx-
ious audience at the
banquet held at the
Richmond Marriot.
As just about everybody pre-
dicted, Old Dominion sophomore
center Odell Hodge won the Colo-
nial Athletic Association's Player
of the Year. Hodge, the 6-foot-9
center from Martinsville, Va
wrecked havoc on CAA players
throughout the season with his 18.3
points per game, which was sec-
ond highest in the conference, and
his 53.8 percent shooting from the
field. Hodge also was an extremely
effective force on defense for the
Monarchs, blocking 60 shots this
season, and averaged 8.5 rebounds.
He scored in double fig-
ures in 25 of 26 games
for ODU.
Fellow Monarch
Petey Sessoms joined
Odell Hodge on the
CAA first team All-
Conference. Sessoms
averaged 17.2 points per
game, and shot 42 per-
cent from the 3-point
From the tourna-
tlOage ment championship
winning James Madison Dukes,
forward Clayton Ritter and guard
Kent Culuko were awarded first
team honors. Ritter and Culuko
were three and four in conference
scoring leaders, averaging 17.9 and
17.3 points per game. Ritter shot
63.5 percent from the field this sea-
son, while Culuko led the confer-
ence in 3-point shooting percent-
age, with 45.5 percent.
Rounding out the first team
was American University forward
Tim Fudd. Fudd led the CAA in
scoring with 18.9 points per game.
ECU guard Lester Lyons was a
member of the second team All-
conference, and was also named to
the CAA All-Defensive team for
the second straight year. Lyons led
the Pirates in scoring with 16.6
points per game. This is his third
year on the All-Second team squad.
The Pirates also had two fresh-
men on the CAA All-Rookie team.
Forward Tim Basham, from
Roanoke, Va and Skipp
Schaefbauer from Elk River, Minn
were awarded for solid play in their
first year at ECU. ECU has now
placed eight players on the CAA
All-Rookie team in the last five
Winning coach of the year was
Richmond's Bill Dooley, in his first
season as head coach of the Spi-
ders. George Mason's Curtis
McCants won the Rookie of the
Year award.
S wiiraners fair well at Rutgers
(SID)�The ECU Pirate swim
programs finished strongly at the
Eastern College Athletic Confer-
ence Championships held at
Rutgers University this weekend.
After the third and final day of
competition Saturday, the
women's team finished fourth,
while the men finished sixth. The
Pirate program was pitted against
a 44-team field of competition from
all over the Eastern seaboard.
The Pirate men swam com-
petitively, led by the fourth-place
finish of David Benson in the 100-
meter Freestyle. Teammate Chris
Bembenek brought in another
fourth-place finish for the men, in
the 200-meter Back. Bembenek set
a varsity record with his 1:51.30
time. The men's 400-meter
Freestyle relay team finished an
impressive sixth, as the Pirate pro-
gram scored their sixth-place fin-
ish with the efforts of only five

While many of you were in
Florida orCancun last week, the East
Carolina baseball team spent their
spring break at home�Harrington
Field, that is. Coach Overton's squad
played nine home games in a 10-day
period, and came out with eight vic-
tories against a single defeat.
The Pirates opened the break
with a two-game series against Vir-
ginia Tech, and swept the Hokies 7-3
and 9-3.
During the weekend, the Pirates
were led by the outstanding pitching
performances of Johnny Beck and
Lyle Hartgrove, who were backed,
as usual, by the big bats in the ECU
"Up to that point, we had been
playing good baseball and felt we
were progressing Overton said.
" We lost two games to Virginia Tech
last year, but during this series, we
played our best baseball of the year

(AP) � Tonya ILirding won't
face a U.S. Figure Skating Associa-
tion disciplinary hearing before this
U.S. District Judge Owen
Pannerdecided Friday that the hear-
ing can't be held before June 27. The
association had initially planned to
convene the hearing Thursday at
Colorado Springs, Colo.
Panner found that Harding's
attorneys hadn't had enough time
to prepare a defense to charges that
she violated the USFSA's code of
ethks by her involvement in the
attack on Nancy Kerrigan.
The decision cleared the way
for Harding to skate at the World
Championships, which begin in
Chiba, Japan, on March 22.
Figure skating officials had
asked Panner to allow the hearing
to be scheduled within 30 to45 days
but Harding's lawyers wanted
much more time.
"It's certainly unfortunate that
we won't beable to havea swift and
fair hearing said Bill Hybl, who
heads the five-member panel tfuit
was to have conducted the USFSA
With the hearing delayed for
more than three months, attention
turns to the criminal investigation.
If Harding is to becharged with
any crime for her role in the Kerrigan
attack, it appears it will happen in
Portland, possibly as early as next
Federal prosecutors decided
this week to stay out of the case and
officials in Wayne County, Mich
reportedlv have resisted any at-
tempt to move the matter there.
Multnomah County District
Attorney Michael Schrunk asked
the Justice Department to review its
position, but the head of the
department's terrorism and vio-
lent crime section said federal
charges would not be brought.
James Reynolds wrote that lo-
cal charges of assault or conspiracy
to commit assault would be easier
to prosecute than federal statutes,
according to Justice Department
spokesman John Russell.
A grand jury is to deliver its
final report on the case by March
21. Much of the case against
Harding is based on the testimony
of her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly,
and her sometime-bodyguard,
Shawn Eckardt. Both say Harding
was in on the Kerrigan plot.
She denies the allega tions and
says she only learned people
around her were involved when
she returned home from Detroit
after winning the U.S. champion-
ships, where Kerrigan was struck
in leg on the eve of competition.

with 3:20 left, it was still any body's
ball game to win.
"Given the styles of the two
teams, it was going to be a two or
three possession game. It was really

A foul by Hodges with 2:46 left
sent Gill to the line to tie the game at
51 apiece. Hodges responded with a
five-foot jumper to push the lead
back to two, 53-51. After Robinson
hit one of two free-throws, Hodges
went to the line for UR, sinking both
of them to make the score 55-52.
After a Spider timeout, Gill was
called for an offensive foul with 1:29
left to play. Another Gill foul on the
other side of the court sent
Richmond's Eugene Burroughs to
the line, who hit one, making the
score 56-52 with 30 seconds left.
Lyons was fouled with 23 seconds
left, and hit one qf two free throws,
making it 56-53. A Robinson steal on
a full-court pass by Metzger gave
ECU the possession again, giving
the ball to Lyons, who was fouled on
a lay-up attempt. Lyons hit both FTs,
cutting the lead to one. A Robinson
jumper fell short with just seconds
left to play, and UR won 58-55 after
