Instead of one day's experi-

Originally from San Diego,
Calif Horst attended ECU for 4
12 years and graduated last se-
mester with a bachelor's degree
in criminal justice. As part of his
degree, Horst participated in
ECU's field placement program
last fall.
The progim is available in
both the criminal justice and so-
cial work departments. ECU re-
quires that interns ha ve an overall
2.5 GPA and also attend a semi-
nar and a course during place-
ment, which can be completed
during the fall, spring or summer
"The seminar is designed to
allow students to compare their
agency with other agencies
Horst said. "It gives students the
opportunity to attain a broader
understanding of the criminal jus-
tice field from a hands-on per-

students took advantage of
Spring Break to help out those
less fortunate.
It has been a little over a
year and a half since Hurricane
Andrew slammed into the
Florida coast leaving behind shat-
tered lives and extensive dam-
age. During ECU's Spring Break,
a group from St. James United
Methodist Church, in Greenville,
and several ECU students trav-
eled to the southern part of Mi-
ami to help repair the damage
that remained.
The work team consisted of
six students from ECU, a gradu-
ate student also from ECU, and
five members of St. James United
Methodist Church and other area
This is the second year that
a work team has gone to Florida
to aid the reconstruction of
houses that were still below the
standards set by Dade County.
The families who owned the
houses that were worked on had
little or no insurance on their
homes. The families were asked
to pay for as much of the materi-
als as they could.
"Things there are so much
different now said KarenShort,
a member of St. James. "It is get-
ting to the point now where you
have to look for the houses that
are still in need of repair. It's the
exact opposite of how things were
last year
The trip was organized by
Bill Plueddemann, another mem-
ber of St. James. Plueddemann
was unable to actually go and
work with the team, but he coor-
dinated the trip and helped to
raise money for the tools and
materials used by the work team.
"Even though I couldn't go
and be a part of the actual work,
it felt good to do my part and
organize everything for the
team Plueddemann said.
The trip was funded mainly
by the United Methodist Confer-
ence of Volunteers and Mission.
Special collections were also
taken up at Jarvis Memorial
United Methc .tist Church and St.
James United Methodist Church.
Through these collections and
other donations, the work team
was able to raise over $4,000 to
help pay for trip expenses as well

Manuscript resurrected after 125 yrs.
By Stephanie Lassiter
Staff Writer
"I have great faith in a seed.
Convince me that you have a seed
there, and 1 am prepared to expect
� Henry David Thoreau
Imagine finding a manu-
script which dates back more
than 100 years, written by one of
the world's most noted literary
geniuses and being the only per-
son to tackle reconstructing this
lost wonder.
Dr. Bradley Dean, an ad-
junct member of the ECU En-
glish Department, both edited
and reconstructed these frag-
mented pages into the first new
book by Thoreau to appear in
more than 125 years. Since its
publication last spring, Faith in a
Seed has sold over 30,000 hard
cover copies worldwide.
Faith in a Seed has been re-
published by Book of the Month,
the Quality Paperback Club and
the Natural History Book Club.
Reviews have appeared in hun-
dreds of magazines, newspapers
and professional periodicals.
Dean won the prestigious Henry
D. Thoreau Award from the En-
vironmental Protection Agency
and a tour of the White House
conducted by Vice President
Tuesday night, Dean de-
livered the annual Tag Lecture,
named by an anonymous bene-
factor for Dr. and Mrs. Ella Tag.
Dean's speech entitled "Two
Roads to Faith dealt with his
interest in the manuscript as well
as the methods used to recon-
struct the pages. Dean used tech-
niques such as examining pin
holes, perforations and tears to
determine chronological page
numbers. While the task was
grueling, Dean admitted that his
calm temperament helped him
enjoy the work.
Thoreau, who was born in
Concord, Mass. in 1817, was
highly influenced by Ralph
Waldo Emerson, the father of
the American Transcendental-
ists. Thoreau, a multi-lingual
scholar, was fluent in Greek,
Latin, and knew French, Italian
and Spanish. In Nature, one of
Emerson's most noted works, he
wrote, "Our age is retrospec-
tive Thoreau attempted to
carry out these philosophies in
his own writing. Emerson con-
cludes that you should build
your own world. According to
Thoreau, man has a relationship
with his body, and a man can
improve himself by finding him-
Scholars argue that Faith in
a Seed is a more mature work for
Thoreau, where he becomes
more like a modern ecologist.
"Walden was a necessary
precursor to later writings
Dean said.
After Thoreau's death, his
manuscripts were boxed up and
later divided among buyers.
Walden was purchased by Henry
H. Huntington for use in his li-
brary. Unlike many of his earlier
manuscripts, Faith in a Seed ap-
peared scientific and dry. Faith
in a Seed was one of the last works
Thoreau wrote before his death
in 1862 of tuberculosis. The
manuscript was often pushed
aside by Thoreauvians for manu-
scripts closer to completion.
Dean recognized that Seeds had
potential and he set out to recon-
struct the book in its entirety.
Thoreau left the manu-
script to go seek dryer air in Min-

Retired prof gets students to India

He says he is not a hero.
But at the age of 70, Dr.
Mohammed A. Ahad has started
yet another program to help the
less fortunate in his home coun-
try of India.
A nursing instructor, Ahad
retired from ECU in 1991. He
traveled to India last fall for 10
weeks to implement his own
program which gives scholar-
ships, fellowships and grants to
those who want to pursue nurs-

Ahad moved to the U.S. in
1969 and came to ECU in 1976.
In 1982 he took a trip to a small
community in India called
Giripuram about 20 miles from
where he grew up. For this vil-
lage of 80 fisherman families,
which he describes as the
poorest of the poor, Ahad

and a school for the children.

taken over the school, but

sanitary and organized than

Russia is perhaps one of the

One of the most mysterious
aspects of Russia is its language.
With a completely different al-
phabet and pronunciation than
English, most people avoid learn-
ing it. However, with the advent
of a brand new capitalist market

portunities, more people are be-

ginning to acquire an interest in the
As a result, ECU's foreign lan-
guage department is now expand-
ing the Russian program with sev-
eral new courses. Leading the effort
to expand the program is Dr. Maria
B. Malby.Malby is a native Croat
who used to live in Yugoslavia. She
was a small child when Yugoslavia
was liberated from Nazi Germany
by the Soviet army in 1945. After
that, the Soviet Union incorporated
the Russian language into the edu-
cation system.
In 1959, Malby came to the
United States. At that time, very
few universities offered majors in
Russian, so she came to the United
States to major in French and Ger-
man and minor in Russian. She then
pursued her Ph.D. in Russian and
received it in 1970.
After obtaining her degree, she
came to ECU to help the university
develop a Russian program and to
teach Russian. In 1973, the depart-
ments of Russian, German and all
the Romance languages were
merged into one foreign language
department. Russian now stands as
the only language in the depart-
ment that does not have a major or
minor program.
Since that time, Malby has
been very active in the program and
has tried to get it expanded. So far,
she has successfully created two new
Russian literature courses: Russian
2220, which is 19th century Russian
literature, and Russian 2221, which
is 20th century Russian literature.
Both coursescover all the great Rus-
sian authors of the two centuries
and are taught in English. Russian
2220 will also be offered during the
second summer session. The two
courses can be used to fulfill gen-
eral education humanities require-
Malby sees the Russian lit-
erature courses as not only about
great writing, but also about phi-
losophy. "They the writers had
an interesting combination of writ-
ing and philosphy Malby said.
"If one really pays attention to the
things that those great men have
pointed out, one cannot fail but
have a good, productive, healthy
Along with the two new
courses being added, Malby is
making an effort to get more stu-
dents to enroll into the basic Rus-
sian language courses. "I wantstu-
dents to know that Russian is of-
fered and it is easy to learn she
said. Malby said the third and
fourth semester courses of the lan-
guage are actually much easier than
the first two semesters.
In trying to recruit more
people in the Russian language,
Malby is also pushing for the imple-
mentation of a Russian minor pro-
"The time has come to do it
Malby said. Last spring, Professor
Foard, the secretary of the national
chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the Rus-
sian honor society, came to ECU
and metwith Malby. She said Foard
was very surprised that ECU does
nothavea majororminorprogram
in Russian. "He felt that it was an
important language Malby said.
Also, Malby believes that a
chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa
honor society should be started
at ECU and offered to students of
Russian.Malby feels that Russia
will be a new center of economic
prosperity for international busi-
nesses. "Opportunities in Russia
are simply great she said but
Russian is essential
This past Christmas, Malby
heard from two of her former
students of Russian who were
both at ECU 10 years ago. Both
other ex-students now have very
good jobs in Russia. One student
sells real estate in St. Petersburg.
The other student works in Mos-
cow as a consultant to teach Rus-
sians the basics of capitalism. In
doing that, he also helps to con-
vert previously government-
owned companies into private
companies. Malby noted that be-
cause the Russians have no
knowledge of the workings of
private ownership, foreigners
will be able to find good jobs like
these with ease.
Malby feels that many stu-
dents have heard rumors about
the difficulty of Russian and stay
away from it. She noted that Rus-
sian is actually much easier than
most people believe. "There
hasn't been a student yet who
hasn't been able to read and write
Russian in three weeks she
Malby said that the lan-
guage is about 85 percent pho-
netics, which means that once a
student grasps the alphabet and
some basic grammar, the rest
comes easy.

Feds, drug suspects duel in Philly
shootout yesterday between
drug suspects and federal agents
in a crime-infested neighborhood
left two suspects dead and two
agents wounded.
The confrontation occurred
at an intersection as four agents
and a policeofficer followed four
drug suspects in a car, according
to Bob Reutter, agent in charge
of the FBI's Philadelphia office.
When their car stopped, the
suspects opened lire and the
agents fired back, Reutter said.
Witnesses in the north Philadel-
phia neighborhood reported
hearing 20 to 25 shots.
Reutter declined to provide
more details other than to say
the agents were participating in
a federal-local investigation
dubbed the Violent Traffickers
One agent was shot in the
hand and the other was shot in
the chin, according to FBI spokes-
woman Adrian Menn. Both men
were treated at Temple Univer-
sity Hospital.

were in police custody, Menn
Overwhelming fumes remain nameless
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) �
Blood tests found no insecticide or
abnormal drug levels in the system
of a woman who died as mysteri-
ous fumes felled emergency room
workers, the Riverside Press Enter-
prise reported yesterday.
Investigators now want to
examine the syringe used to draw
blood from the dying woman at
RiversideGeneral Hospital on Feb.
19, the newspaper quoted uniden-
tified sources as saying.
Results of the blood analysis
leave investigators baffled about
what caused the death of cancer
patient Gloria Ramirez, 31, and
what caused six hospital workers
to become ill while trying to save
her, the newspaper said.
Insecticide poisoning was
suspected as the cause from the
outset because of symptoms re-
ported by the stricken medical
workers and an ammonia-like odor
thev said came from Ramirez's
Initial tests allegedly indicat-
ing poisoning by organophos-
phates, a toxic component of many
insecticides, bolstered that conclu-
sion, but one of the sources said
those tests were incorrect, the pa-
per said.
Chief Deputy Coroner Daniel
Cupido and Riverside Countv
spokesman Tom DeSa n tis declined
to comment.
Investigators believe a toxic
chemical caused the emergency
room team to become ill, but the
source and type of chemical is still
a mystery, a source said. While the
blood test found nothing, it is pos-
sible that a chemical was present in
the body but undetectable in the
blood test, the paper said.
Investigators will now focus
on emergency room items that have
been stored in sealed drums since
the incident, the paper said, and of
particular interest is the syringe
used to draw blood from Ramirez.
"That syringe is very impor-
tant to the investigation the pa-
per quoted a source as saying.
"Without it there are certain things
you can't rule out
Investigators also will test
medications taken from Ramirez's
residence after her death to deter-
mine if there was product tamper-
ing. "Nobody's saying there was
any tampering, but there have to
be tests to rule that out said a
Investigators are still waiting
for the results of air samples taken
at the time of a Feb. 25 autopsy on

from the hospital emergency room

(AP) � A former Henderson
County migrant worker being in-
vestigated in the deaths of 15
people in six states was captured
here in 1992 on a fugitive's war-
rant and was freed without post-
ing a cash bond.
The law enforcement offic-
ers leading the hunt for bodies at
Frank T. Potts' remote Jackson
County, Ala homestead said they
did not understand why-
Henderson County authorities
released him when a warrant was
issued for Potts in connection with
the May 1992 kidnapping of an
Alabama wildlife officer.
"Had we gotten him when
they (HendersonCountv) had him
in custody there, it may not have
made any difference, but we'll
never know Dennis Miller, chief
deputy at the JacksonCounty, Ala
Sheriff's Department told the
Asheville Citizen-Times.
Alabama deputies there un-
earthed skeletal remains Monday
ofone body, believed to be a young
person, probably a teen-ager, said
Jackson County Sheriff Mike
Wells. Investigators had not de-
termined the sex or identity of the
body, Wells said.
Potts, 50, is being held with-
out bond in Bartow, Fla on a
charge of sexual battery on an 11 -
year-old girl. Authorities suspect
Potts in a string of unsolved homi-
cides in New York, Pennsylvania,
Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia and
Potts worked in Henderson
County d uring the summer of 1992
for Lt. Randy Case of the
Henderson County Sheriff's De-
partment, Case said Tuesday.
Case's family owns an or-
chard and leases other lands, he
said. Case, who investigates theft
crimes, said he has known Potts
since the late 1970s and thought
he was a nice person
So when Potts was arrested
in Henderson County Sept. 23,
1992, on the fugitives's warrant
from Jackson County, Ala Case
said he vouched for him before a
Henderson County magistrate
who was trying to decide what
bond to set.
Potts was wanted in Ala-
bama fort irst-degree kidnapping
in connection with an incident
May 13, 1992, with an Alabama
wildlife officer, according to
court documents and the Jack-
son Counts' sheriff's office.
Henderson County Magis-
trate Sandra Laughter set Potts'
bond at $20,000 unsecured, and
set a court date on the fugitive's
warrant for Oct. 27,1992, accord-
ing to court records. Potts was
released, but never showed up
in court. A warrant was issued
tor his tailing to show up in court,
and his bond was increased to
$20,000 secured bond. But local
authorities never found him
Laughter said she released
Potts without making him posta
cash bond beca use Case vouched
for him. Tuesday, Case defended
the bond, and said he knows of
three times when a fugitive was
granted an unsecured bond.
Henderson County
Sheriff's detective Sgt. Sandv
Jackson said Tuesday Potts is not
being investigated in any deaths
here. Henderson County has two
missing people, but no unsolved
homicides, Jackson and Case

Researchers announce possible breakthrouj
AIDS, cancer patients may see medical advancements through latest developments
RALEIGH (AP) � Modi-
fied DN A could help in the fight
against AIDS and cancer, but
also might help scientists un-
derstand the basic building
blocks of life, said researchers
who developed such a molecule.
North Carolina State Uni-
versity researchers, collaborat-
ing with Polish scientists, have
developed a form of deoxyribo-
nucleic acid that mimics the ac-
tion of ribonucleic acid, or RN A.
This DNA molecule, or
analog, fits on a cell's ribosomes,
the parts of a cell which help
produce proteins. The proteins,
which sustain the body's me-
tabolism, are also important for
the reproduction of disease-
causing bacteria and viruses.
Controlling or stopping the
production of certain proteins
could lead to new treatments
for diseases associated with
those proteins, said Dr. Paul
Agris, professor of biochemis-
try at NCSU.
"What's unique about our
work is that we have the first
approach that goes directly to
protein synthesis said Agris,
the leader of the research team.
"Other research concentrated on
stopping production of RNA in
the nucleus or destroying RNA
before it gets to the ribosomes
The research findings were
published in Tuesday's issue of
the Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences.
Some scientists believe that
RNA was the first nucleic acid
containing genetic information
in living organisms, and that
DNA later evolved and took
over the role of supplying ge-
netic information, Agris said.
RNA then became the tool by
which protein synthesis oc-
curred ip the cell, he explained.
Dr. Dieter Soil, professor
of molecular biophysics and bio-
chemistry at Yale University,
said the findings lead to some
interesting theoretical inquiry.
"This poses some interest-
ing questions on the evolution
of DNA and RNA Soil said. "I
think it's a significant finding
that will allow molecular biolo-
gists to think again about the
relationship between RNA and
On a more practical level,
modified DNA molecules could
lead to advances in the treat-
ment of diseases such as AIDS
and cancer.
"The AIDS virus requires
protein synthesis for its replica-
tion, so if we can shut down
protein production by those
cells that are specifically in-
fected by the AIDS virus, then
we can control the proliferation
of the virus Agris said.
"Right now we haven't hit
on specific proteins he said.
"However, the approach we
have engineered in this designer
DNA will allow us to move from
nonspecific proteins to specific
proteins in the future
Another problem is find-
ing a way to get DNA analogs to
specific targets within cells.
Hollow spheres of lipid, or
fat, filled with nucleic acid and
integrated into the cell mem-
brane might be one way to de-
liver the altered DNA, Agris
Researchers agreed that
any practical application of the
new technology is several years
In theory, current gene
therapy for diseases such as cys-
tic f ibrosis requires that only one
molecule of DNA be properly
delivered to defective cells, said
Dr. Lee Babiff, a section head in
cell biology at Glaxo Inc. in Re-
search Triangle Park.
The new code blocking, or
"antisense technology would
require delivery of thousands
of DNA molecules in order to
ensure that every RNA compo-
nent encoding the targeted pro-
tein is inactivated, Babiff said.
To further the work, the
academy and the National Re-
search Council will sponsor a
six-month visit to NCSU by Pol-
ish researcher Dr. Andrzej

hbio by Cadrlc Van Buren
nesota because of his failing
health. When he realized he was
nearing death, he started work-
ing on Wild Fruits and other lec-
tures close to completion. In Wild
Fruits, Thoreau discussed fruits
in his area such as the huckle-
berry and the wild apple.
Dean noted a portion of the
manuscript where Thoreau dis-
cussed the miracle of seeds,
hence the name Faith in a Seed
was developed. Notes in the
margin of the text give the im-
pression that Thoreau would
have added them to the manu-
script had he not died.
In 1859, Charles Darwin
wrote Origin of the Species which
questioned the beginning of man.
This vei y controversial book in-
cluded two chapters devoted to
geographical distribution, a topic
which at that point was still not
clear to scientists. From there,
Thoreau began his lengthy dis-
cussion of the dispersion of seeds
and the succession of plants.
"Thoreau was making a
plea to his neighbors to use their
land properly Dean said.
" He was supplementing the
weak line of Darwin's Origin
of the Species
The title Faith in a Seed
is an umbrella title to cover
"Dispersion of the Seed

the book.

Serbs, Croats may
negotiate soon
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia
(AP) � Croatian Serbs and
Croatian officials will meet in
Russia's embassy in Zagreb next
week for talks on ending all hos-
tilities, Russian Deputy Foreign
Minister Vitaly Churkin an-
nounced yesterday.
Bloodshed began in the
Balkans when Serbs and Croats
fought a bitter six-month war in
1991 in which a t least 10,000 people
died. A U.Nimposed truce has
kept an uneasy peace since, but
the two sides have never reached
anv formal settlement.
Churkin said discussions
starting Tuesday in Zagreb were
aimed at ending the violence and
restoring normal life to the Krajina
area, the one-third of Croatia held
by Serbs.
"We hope tha t the agreement
on cessation of military hostilities
and all other hostile activities
would contribute to the improve-
ment and gradual normalization
of Serb-Croat relations, which is a
very important element of the situ-
ation overall in Yugoslavia
Churkin told reporters.

forts by the U.N. High Commis-
sioner tor Refugees to open up
Maglaj for aid convoys and re-
jected a new request to let relief
trucks reach the Muslim enclave
in north-central Bosnia.
Maglaj's 19,000 residents
have not received a U.N. aid con-
voy since October. They live on
food from U.N. air drops, while
enduring regular Serb shelling.
�Bosnian radio reported
one killed and four wounded in
shelling of Maglaj. Itsaid the north-
western Bihac enclave also was
shelled, one person killed and sev-
eral wounded, and that Serb forces
had intensified shelling of Bugojno

vice president of the National
Nursing Association for 15
years. While speaking for the
International Congress of Nurs-
ing in Montreal, Canada, he set
his sights on the United States.
He had to leave his family
in India for seven years while
studying at a university in New
York, because he knew how dan-
gerous the city could be. On a
later trip in 1989, those fears
were confirmed when he was
mugged on the street and shot
twice. When he came to Green-
ville, Ahad felt safe enough to
bring his family here. Last fall
he received an award from the
city of Greenville for his out-
standing work in eastern North
Carolina in multi-cultural stud-
ies and integration in Pitt
"Mv son says 'why don't
you travel and enjoy life after
you're retired? Why don't you
want these things?' This is my
enjoyment Ahad said.
Ahad is planning frequent
travel to India to make sure his
new program is running
smoothly. "People need guid-
ance Ahad said. "I have
planned to be in India for four
months each fall
Ahad said that most people
in India receive the equivalent
of a high school diploma, but
the chances of a university edu-
cation are greatlv reduced. In-
dia has 25 colleges.
This new nursing program
is designed to improve nursing
education, practice, and re-
search, and to provide nurses
an opportunity to share their
knowledge through programs,
projects, seminars and journals.
He is hoping conferences and
educational programs for excel-
lence will develop from the
program's efforts.
Ahad has a team of three
people seeking Indian appli-
cants for a scholarship program.
He estimates the cost of the pro-
gram will be around $37,000 for
the next five years.
Ahad's grown children
have all settled in North Caro-
lina. Ahad likes it here also, but
remembers his roots and has be-
come a great beneficiary to the
country of India.

ship was a truly valuable experi-
ence. "They strive to expose the
student to every aspect of the or-
ganization said Horst. Two
weeks he worked with communi-
cation dispatch, two weeks with
the detectives division and the
ma jority of the semester he worked
with patrol officers during day
and night shifts.
Horst's favorite division was
the night patrol. "More action
happens at night said Horst. "It's
interesting because people think
they can get away with stuff (at
night) coupled with the down-
town drinking
As an intern, Horst got a first
hand taste of law enforcement.
While on the job he saw "mostly
DWI's and general traffic stops,
seatbelt violations, speeding
Horst pointed out that a stu-
dent will get out of an internship
whatever he or she puts into it.
"Initiative definitely affects the
interns he said. "Depending on
how the intern is, really motivated
or laid back, will greatlv influence
how much they'll be allowed to
do within the department
While interning, Horst no-
ticed that the campus police were
not given the respect they deserve.
"I don't think people see ECU
police as law enforcement or
sworn officers he said. "Stu-
dents at NC State treat their offic-
ers with twice the amount of re-
spect as ECU. Here they see ECU
police officers as rent-a-cops, and
that's just not the case at all, from
my personal experience
The ECU Police Department
usually takes on only one intern a
semester, said Horst. "Currently
the department has one female
intern he said. "There are so
many other areas to be placed in

The work team operated out
of the Manfred Retreat Center in
south Miami. The Center houses
all groups regardless of denomi-
nation and groups representing
Habitat Humanity, a group that
builds low cost housing for fami-
lies that live in sub-standard hous-
By the end of March,
Manfred will have hosted over
5,000 volunteers from 49 states
and 14 countries. The two biggest
groups that operate out of
Manfred (UMC and Habitat) have
been responsible for the rebuild-
ing of over 100 houses and are
still working on more than 300
houses now. There are still 264
houses in need of repair by vol-
unteer groups.
"I would say � this is a
rough estimate � that Manfred,
being the second largest volun-
teer facility that is still in opera-
tion has done roughlv 15 to 20
percent of the volunteer work here
in DadeCounty said Pam Smith,
The work team participated
in several projects over the cou rse
of the week. Several of the projects
involved finishing jobs such as
minor electrical work or painting.
Earlier in the week, the team had
to patch a roof that had remained
damaged since the hurricane
struck. Many of the projects could
not be finished due to time con-
"God really blessed me on
this trip said Christian Webb, a
freshman at ECU. "And I feel that
we accomplished a good deal
physically, even though we didn't
fully complete any of our projects.
It was exciting to be a very small
part of an enormous project
There is still a lot of damage
left in the Miami area. Projects
that are left unfinished, will be
picked up and completed by
other groups.
"There has been a com-
bined effort of so many people
to get stuff done and repaired
said Yolanda Macon, thechurch
and community outreach coor-
dinator at Kerr Memorial
United Methodist Church,
where the team worked. "It is
hard tor people to express their
gratitude because so many
people are coming in and out
all the time
Everyone in the group had
a chance to work and help out
in the overall rebuilding expe-
rience. Several members of the
work team were experienced in
areas such as carpentry and elec-
trical work. Everyone had a
chance to learn and to help.
"One of the most impor-
tant things is that we were out
there letting the home owners
know that people are still aware
and willing toexpresstheircare
and concern for them, "said Sam
Loy, the team leader.
The team worked most of
the time. During the trip down,
they enjoyed a stop at Kennedy
Space Center. Throughout the
week they worked and on
Thursday, the team had a
chance to visit downtown Mi-
ami for a "night out on the
town The purpose of the trip
was not to play and have fun,
but to work and help people
rebuild not only their houses,
but their lives as well.
The experiences of the trip
were best summed up by one of
the team members.
"I got a good sense of ac-
complishment not only from the
work that we as a team did, but
also from talking to the people
we came to help said ECU
student Jeff Joyner. "We were
really there for the people and,
seeing them happy really made
the trip worthwhile

St. Pat's Day discrimination and green beer
Homophobia is alive and kicking in the
great city of Boston. Boston is known for its
large Irish population and that population's
annual St. Patrick's Day parade. Except for
this year, that is.
The traditional sponsor of the 90-year-
old parade, the South Boston Allied War
Veterans Council, said after Friday's ruling
allowing homosexuals the right to march in
the parade, that it would sit out rather than
march with gays and lesbians. So, since there
isn't enough time for anyone else to organize
the event, there will be no parade.
The veteran's council will appeal
Friday's Supreme Judicial Court ruling to the
U.S. Supreme Court, claiming violation of its
right to free speech.
The state's high court upheld without
comment an injunction issued in December,
when a judge ruled that the parade was a
place of public accommodation where dis-
crimination based on sexual orientation was
illegal. In a similar case involving the New
York City parade, a federal judge ruled last
year that the Ancient Order of Hibernians did
not have to include a group of marchers with
contradictory beliefs. Well, la-de-da. Imagine
people in America having dissimilar views
It seems a real shame that this country
has such a problem with the homosexual
lifestyle. This blatant form of discrimination
in a St. Patrick's Day parade, for Pete's sake, is
pretty ridiculous. It's like they're saying that
there aren't any Irish gays, and even if there
are, we can't celebrate a holiday alongside
them because, pssst, they like people of the
same sex!
Not to get completely off the track, but
discrimination and prejudiced ideas are based
on some sort of weird combination of an infe-
riority complex and the superior notion that
no one different from you is worthy of com-
passion, understanding or tolerance. It's so
simple, but bigoted people never see it.
What harm would the participation of
gay and lesbian marchers in the Boston pa-
rade have caused? None, and it's unfortunate
that our friends, the veterans, can't realize it.
Well, well, well. Another holiday,
kalloo, kallay. St. Patrick's Day is a celebra-
tion steeped in tradition and bastardized to
the hilt.
It is no longer a religious observance,
or a day of displays of Irish patriotism. It's
just another pathetic drinking excuse. Get-
ting wasted on green beer is a token prac-
tice for today's Irish and non-Irish alike.
And wouldn't St. Patrick be proud?
The answer, plain and simple, is no. Why it
is that Americans and other first world coun-
tries must screw up everything that was so
genuine and real and make it into a dumb
drinking bonanza is beyond me. So just to
spite all of those stupid, plastered people
out there, here is the real St. Patrick's Day
� green beer be damned:
Bishop Patrick was born in Ireland,
A.D. 389 and is Ireland's patron saint. He is
credited with converting Ireland to Chris-
tianity after being sold to slavery midway
through his life. In Ireland, St. Patrick's Day
is a religious holiday accompanied by
church ceremonies and observances. But
unlike a good deal of Americans, the Irish
population does not drink green beer, eat
green bagels, march in festive parades or
wear shamrocks.
Actually, the shamrock was a tool St.
Patrick used to explain the concept of the
Holy Trinity to those he was converting.
These particular shamrocks didn't have "Kiss
Me I'm Irish" on them and they certainly
weren't made of plastic and covered with
silver glitter. Instead, it was a holy device in
religious teaching. A beautiful, inventive
teaching device.
Here's where the modern drinking ex-
cuse may originate from: It is possible that
the shamrock tradition came from the fact
that St. Patrick's Day was the only day dur-
ing Lent when people were free to eat and
drink their fill. This practice of drinking and
eating was called "drowning the shamrock"
and is a practice that has been established for
at least 100 years. Though the beer was never
green and the practice was tied, again to
religous observance, the pratice involved a
sort of reward for a difficult tradition of
fasting during Lent.
So, for all of those who dip their white
dogs (and themselves) in green dye and sing
"When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" like its goin'
out of style, remember the true history be-
hind an very intriguing country.
I guess the point is that Americans never
discipline themselves enough to deserve any-
thing as wonderful as "drowning the sham-
rock We're too goal oriented to appreciate a
practice that has a deep meaning such as Lent.
Or maybe some of us do. For those who
can appreciate discipline, at least try not to
laugh green beer through your nose.
By Laura Wright
Hillary seen as destroyer of man's gender
I am taking a 17th century
literature class that focuses upon
gender presentations in works by
both women and men. It's a small
class; there are only five students in
there and it's three hours long, so
we usually end up philosophizing
about life.
We started talking about gen-
der and about whether or not gen-
der can be reduced to biology. By
gender I don't mean the sex of an
individual but the characteristics of
a person that can be defined as ei-
ther feminine or masculine. A per-
son is biologically male or female,
gender. Gender identity is learned
when certain individual acts re-
ceive positive or negative reinforce-
ment. This reinforcement is often
dependent upon an individual's sex.
OK, whatever.
If that description of gender
didn't put you to sleep, allow me to
present an example of what I'm
talking about here. When I was
about five years old, I idolized my
eight-year-old cousin, Kevin. I
wanted to be just like him. I tried to
talk like him, I imitated his manner-
isms and I even introduced myself
as Kevin. My mother, I think, was
probably a little concerned about
my gender confusion and she con-
stantly reprimanded me for talking
like my cousin.
I learned that as a little girl,
certainbeha vior was acceptable and
certain behavior was not. Similarly,
I remember when I was in kinder-
garten and a male friend of mine
wore some of his mother's red nail
polish to school. Needless to say, he
was teased so much by the other
kids in the class that he never wore
nail polish to school again.
This kind of reinforcement
starts young: girls get dolls to play
with, boys get baseballs. Recently, a
group of activists switched some of
the voice boxes in the talking Barbie
doll and the talking G. I. Joe doll in
order to mess with the gender rein-
forcement that comes from such
toys. Barbie usually says things like
"let's go shopping" while G. I. Joe's
phrases refer to combat.
Not only does gender iden-
tity begin early, its based upon ar-
chetypes that are part of our cul-
tural experience. We find them in
the Bible, with the story of Adam
and Eve. Adam would have been
just fine if Eve had not come along
and tempted him. From this story,
we internalize ideas like, women
lead to the downfall of men and
men can be tempted by women into
doing things that they would not
normally do.
So, if gender roles are learned
from reinforcement and from cul-
tural stories, and I believe that
they are, then essentially, one sex
has learned to oppress the other
and one sex has learned to be op-
pressed. There is nothing biologi-
cal that causes men to be aggres-
sors and women to passively re-
ceive aggression but if we try to
break away from those gender
roles that have been established,
we get punished.
In my 17th century British lit-
erature class, we were talking about
gender in reference to the play,
Antony and Cleopatra, by William
Shakespeare. In the play,
Cleopatra, a powerful and ag-
gressive ruler, is blamed for the
downfall of Antony. In the end,
both must die because they have
acted in opposition to their gen-
der roles: she is strong and active,
he follows her and is, therefore,
unmanly and weak.
To bring this discussion of
think about Hillary Clinton and
the Whitewater thing. Here is a
woman who has gone against
what society thinks is acceptable
feminine behavior. She is smart,
successful and at least somewhat
powerful. She has been ridiculed
and criticized from the begin-
ning of Bills presidency and now
she is being hounded for an al-
leged ethical oversight.
It's not that what she may
have done is any worse than the
Iran-Contra Affair (or Bill's af-
fairs for that matter), but what
she did goes against what we, as
aculture,believeto he acceptable
gender behavior. Like Cleopatra,
Hillary hasbeen presented as the
overbearing woman who de-
stroys the power of men.
Whether or not Hillary de-
serves to be punished for her
actions is not the issue because
she will be punished. She will be
punished not so much for
allofthatpast history thatwamed
her not to break out of the mold
of her gender.
By John P. Adams
Clinton: representative for big business ideals
Someone needs to let Bill
and Hillary know that the
party's over, everyone's leav-
ing and it's going to be up to
them to clean the mess up.
Associate Attorney Gen-
eral Webster Hubbell's unex-
pected resignation marks the
third major resignation in Presi-
dent Clinton's administration
this year. Mr. Hubbell joins
former deputy attorney general
Philip Heyman and former
White House counsel Bernard
Nussbaum on the sidelines.
It seems that we can't dis-
cuss anyone closely associated
with President Clinton without
the "ord "former" preceding
their name.
Why is everyone bailing
out? Are they afraid they'll end
up like Vincent Foster Jr.? I don't
think we'll see any more "sui-
cides but a lot of people associ-
ated with President Clinton may
end up wishing they were dead.
Nowadays, if you're an attorney
from Arkansas, the only thing
more dangerous to your career
than a hole in the head is to be
friends with the Clintons.
Hubbell, in his resignation
letter to the President, cited
"public speculation about me
and my former law firm" (the
Rose firm) as his reason for quit-
ting. What an abomination! Here
we have a man who is closely
linked to a failed S&L, nefarious
business dealings and perhaps
a major cover-up operation with
Mr. Hubbell is probably
directly responsible for costing
taxpayers millions of dollars, so
who does he blame when he
quits? You and me, the public.
As John Milton wrote, those who
put out the people's eyes re-
proach them for their blindness.
I guess it's our fault that
we prefer someone with a little
morality and integrity to hold
important positions in our gov-
ernment. I guess we, the public,
are to blame for allowing Mr.
Hubbell to execute his esoteric
business dealings. After all, we
should have known that anyone
who calls himself a friend of Bill
Clinton isn't exactly going to be
a role model.
The big question in Wash-
ington now is, will Janet Reno
actually be running the Justice
Department since Hubbell and
Heyman have resigned? I doubt
it. If you were President Clinton,
would you want your third pick
for the job really in charge of
law enforcement for the entire
The only thing Janet Reno
has done right is to have paid
social security taxes on her
hired help in Miami, unlike
the women who were nomi-
nated before her. Reno should
have resigned last year after
she authorized the slaughter
of the Branch Davidians in
Waco, but that's another
Two important ironies
are developing out of
Whitewater. The first is that
President Clinton may be
found guilty of what he cam-
paigned so ardently against:
"the greed of the '80s It's
beginning to look more and
more like Bill and Hillary
cashed in in a big way during
the deregulated '80s.
The second irony is that
good-old-boy politics are
alive and well in the Clinton
Administration. For all you
liberals who thought Bill
Clinton represented a break
with the past, Clinton is as
much a product of the past as
he is a representative for big
business ideals.
The names change and
some of the politics do too,
but by and large, every four
years, we basically get the
same type of person in the
White House.

The East Carolinian I 9
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
As an alumnus of ECU, a former President
of the ECU College Democrats and Vice Presi-
dent of the North Carolina Federation of Col-
lege Democrats I have been a bit dismayed at the
barrage of letters attacking Walter B. Jones, Jr.
for changing his party affiliation last year.
When Walter changed his party affiliation
last year, there was no secret motive, no devious
political maneuvering in smoke filled back
rooms. The Democratic Party in North Carolina
has moved away from the sound ideals of fiscal
moderation, economic growth, and preserva-
tion of the family. It has moved so far to the left
that most of its traditional supporters have been
left behind.
There is no longer a place in the Demo-
cratic Party for the average middle class family.
There is very little room for anyone who is
willing take a stand for there beliefs.
Censorship, politically correct extremism
and demands that members tow the party line or
face punishment are just not political ideals that
I can support and they aren't ideals that Walter B.
Jones can stand behind either. The College Demo-
crats attacking a candidate for his affiliation rather
than because looking at the issues is just another
symptom of the breakdown of the party.
Neither Walter nor I have abandoned our
principles, nor have the countless other Demo-
crats who have either changed their registration.
We in fact are sticking to our principles by chang-
ing affiliations. We didn't leave the Democratic
party, it left us. Rather than sit and whine about
it, we have, in good democratic tradition, contin-
ued to make our voices and opinions known only
this time under a different banner. A banner that
more effectively represents us.

To the Editor:
The administration of East Carolina Uni-
versity has been tireless in its efforts to improve
the quality of education and students life on
In the area of graduate education there are
several Ph.D. programs in the medical sciences
which are offered at the medical school campus,
an Ed.D. program in educational leatership in
the School of Education, and two planned Ph.D
programs for the main campus: medical physics
and coastal resource management. Many of the
master's level graduate programs are also re-
gionally and nationally recognized.
Ironically, there seems to be an institution-
wide breakdown when it comes to meeting
graduate student needs outside the classroom. I
will cite only a few situations which I find par-
ticularly perplexing:
1. Graduate students make up approxi-
mately 15 of the total enrollment at ECU�
somewhere around 2000 students. The Student
Government Association only appropriated 3
of activity fees in 1992, and 7 in 1993, to gradu-
ate student groups.
Graduate student representation in SGA is
limited because of the number of positions re-
served for undergraduates. Aside from the
graduate "class president" and "class vice-presi-
dent there are no seats specifically reserved
for graduate student representation.
2. There are no residence halls for graduate
students and there is no married student hous-
ing on campus.
3. Do the Student Union Board, Media
Board, Counseling Center, Student Health Ser-
vice and The East Carolinian (to name a few) even
realize that there are graduate students on this
I would like to believe so, because I pay fees
for these just like any other student, but I don't
see much graduate student oriented material com-
ing out of them. The president of our departmen-
tal graduate organization was told at a student
leadership seminar last year that we should make
our activities oriented to 18-19 year olds!
As a first step in recognizing the needs of
graduate students at ECU, a group of graduate
students from several departments will be con-
ducting a survey to determine 1) what activities
and services graduate students are using, and 2)
what activities and services do graduate students
need that are not currently available. The results
of this survey will be made available to the afore-
mentioned organizatiions.
To implement changes in the disbursement
of student activity fees which provides adequate
representation of graduate student interests will
require a change in institutional structure.
The Biology Graduate Student Association
supports the formation of the ECU Graduate and
Professional Student Organization. The GPSO will
enable graduate students to have increased con-
trol of how activity fees are allocated. This will
also relieve the SGA of funding a large number of
different graduate organizations.
Finally, I urge all graduate students to show
their support by taking part in the survey and
signing the petition supporting the GPSO that
will be placed in the graduate offices within the
next few weeks.

To the Editor:
I read with great interest the recent article
and editorial regarding the ECU Media Board's
failure to reach a quorum during many of it's
recent meetings. If you were to search your ar-
chives you will probably not be surprised to find
that this theme recurs in the oped pages of The
East Carolinian.
Historically, the Media Board has been per-
ceived as a "low impact" duty that members of
the University community have been forced to
sit on out of their obligation to whatever pri-
mary campus group they serve.
What prompted me to write this letter was
a thought that came to mind as I read these
articles. I am curious to know whether or not any
of the habitually absent student members of the
Media Board have listed their alledged service
on this board on resume's which they are plan-
ning to circulate to potential employers or gradu-
ate programs.
In an interview situation, how would one
of these folks respond to these questions; 1) Tell
me about your experience on the ECU Media
Board and what you learned from this experi-
ence during your college career? 2) As a poten-
tial employee, how will this experience make you
a better employee to this organization? 3) Can
you list and describe your goals and objectives as
a member of the Media Board and were you
successful in accomplishing your goals?
As for the faculty member who has failed to
make an appearance, I am interested to know
whether or not his service as a member of this
board has a bearing in his performance evalua-
tion as an employee of the University. Certainly
ECU performs performance appraisals on em-
Could a faculty, in good conscience, indi-
cate that they had performed their obligation to
sit on this board when they were never present?
This may be a mute point, these faculty members
may volunteer to sit on this board out of the
goodness of their hearts and should be com-
mended for simply lending their names and cre-
dentials to the board.
These were things that came to my mind. I
would appreciate it if your newspaper would
pursue this matter beyond one issue of the paper.

To the Editor:
It's amazing in this new age on ECU'S cam-
pus, of capital improvement, that one of the most,
if not the worst, runned down, dilapidated build-
ings on this campus has been left out.
In the next couple of years, we will have a
new dining facility, a recreation center, newly
renovated residence halls, an expanded library, a
renovated Minges and Ficklen Stadium.
In all of this, I have yet to hear mention of the
creation of an African-American cultural center.
Maybe it is me, but do we need to reevaluate our
priorities? Yes, the expansion of Joyner is neces-
sary, mandatory for our university's
accredidation. Without it, our degrees would be
almost worthless.
But do we need a new recreation center with
Minges, Christenbury, Garrett, and Aycock pro-
viding fitness areas and equipment? Do we need
a new dining hall with both Jones and Mendenhall
still open, and four snack shops in various places
across this campus?
Do we need to expand Minges and Ficklen,
when we have a hard time as it is filling both of
them on a consistent basis?
Maybe we need to stop and distinguish be-
tween what are wants or needs. I fail to see the
educational benefits of expanding Ficklen and
Minges, creating a recreation center or building a
new dining facility. What I do see is a run down
shack behind Student Health Services that I am
ashamed, as every student should be, to call an
African-American cultural center.
Yes, soon the center will move to the Bloxton
House, but that is a quick fix for a larger problem.
If we are building these other facilities to compete
with other schools like NC State and UNC Chapel
Hill, then should not the cultural center be in-
cluded? Chapel Hill has plans for a new center
and NC State has a state of the art center already
in place. What are we waiting on? Something to
think about

To the Editor:
I found Laura Wright's column, "Grad stu-
dents veritable gluttons for punishment" (East
Carolinian, 3 March 93, p. 5), to be both short-
sighted and off the central point. Her column
mused about how underpaid we graduate stu-
dents are and that the "English graduate students
should up and strike" to protest. Despite the poor
grammar, the point that pay is the central issue is
made with emotional emphasis.
However, she could not be further from the
real problem: the graduate students on this cam-
pus do not get proper respect from the university
administration, faculty, or media. Although pay
(or the lack thereof) is a real issue, it is just a
reflection of how valuable the university feels we
And yet, we are required to teach the stu-
dents with skills we must acquire from God, since
no program is university sponsored to teach gradu-
ate students how to teach.
Pay is not the only measure of our worth.
Graduate students do not get respect from fac-
ulty or the media. For example,Te East Carolin-
ian rarely reports on graduate concerns and only
if prodded into action (as in the Graduate Profes-
sional Student Organization, reported last week).
The real reason graduate students do not get
respect from The East Carolinian, I believe, is
because it is primarily written by and for under-
graduates. Unfortunately, The East Carolinian
neglects roughly 14 of East Carolina University
students who are graduate students.
I believe that strikes are and should be out
of the question. The problem is respect, and re-
spect is gained through dealing with the REAL
problem, not brash and shortsighted solutions. I,
and many others, feel your same frustration with
the University, but strikes are not the answer.
Joseph I. Hmieleski
Graduate student
Editor's note: Laura Wright's use of the following: "English graduate students should up and strike" is what
English students and grammar experts alike call an idiomatic phrase. It is not incorrect in its form. Also, since taking
action against the unfair treatment of graduate students was, in essence, the main idea of Ms. Wright's editorial, she
was anything but off the central point.
To the Editor:
A very interesting letter supposedly sub-
mitted by Eugene Changey appeared on Febru-
ary 24, 1994:
God, speaking through his son Eugene
Jesus, offered us hope and comfort for our future
by letting us know that his son, Jesus, and the
Holy Spirit have returned (currently entwined in
the body of Eugene) to the earth to show us the
way to heaven.
If Jesus has inhabited the body of Mr.
Changey (born 1920) for 73 years, why haven't I
or any of my colleagues ever heard of him or his
book, All Souls are Mine (1959)? Historical writ-
ings about Jesus' first visit � contained in Mr.
Changey'sGod's original Bible � have with-
stood nearly 2000 years of criticism and review to
remain in publication.
Why, if Mr. Changey is who he claims, hasn't
his second book had a profound affect upon people
as the first? It couldn't survive thirty-five years,
much less centuries.
Josephus, Justin Martyr, Lucian and other
first and second century, non-Christian histori-
ans will not dispute the fact that a man named
Jesus walked the earL. approximately 2000 years
ago. The authors tell of how many miraculous
and unexplainable events � such as exorcisms
and physical healing � performed by Jesus caused
many people to follow him and his teachings.
Mr. Changey or Jesus or whoever, if your
first presence had such a tremendous affect on
the leading historians of the day, why is this visit
so different? If someone of this magnitude ex-
isted today, the whole world would know about
it in seconds.
John Robinson, a moderate critic and New
Testament scholar, says that the Gospels are
trustworthy sources for information about the
history and events that surrounded the death
and resurrection of Jesus. Mr. Changey claims
that he and Jesus are one combined spirit, rein-
American Heritage defines reincarnation
as being reborn into another body. In order to
experience rebirth, one must first die. Mr.
Changey contradicts hisGod's original Bible
by suggesting that Jesus only died, taking nearly
2000 years for his "rebirth
Later on his article Mr. Changey says, "My
Holy Spirit is Alive and Breathing in My Son's
Body The last time I check into supernatural
events, spirits did not posses the ability to do
such concrete things as live and breath! sic
Something of this extent would defy all natural
and physical laws.
Mr. Changey, you may have Jesus and the
Holy Spirit entwined within your body, but the
information you present cannot convince me or
anyone else in his or her right mind of it. No
proof exists, only inconsistencies with historical
accounts of Jesus' life and impossibilities with
regard to the supernatural.

I am responding to "Valentine's Day: it's full of Be-

The author misleads to his audience and disgraces
the Christian's beliefs by saying that Easter, "celebrates

he is the son of the creator (God). Secondly, we celebrate

of exchanging cards, verses, and gifts came from the
English and French. It is not for American companies to

came from the other side of the ocean. 2) I believe that
the best gifts come from the heart and not from the
pocketbook. A home-made gift or a small gift from the
heart meansmore than one witha large price tag(unless
you are very materialistic, which almost no one would
admit if they were).
The author writes, "Talk about mind games �
just what is expected of the other can erupt into numer-

Valentine's Day is a reason to express your love to

Editor's note: Firstly, in Roman Catholicism, the celebration of Passion Week includes Good Friday and Easter
Sunday, therefore incorporating both the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ into the Easter observance. Secondly,
according to The Folklore of American Holidays by Gale Research Inc St. Valentine's Day in is honor of two Christian
martyrs who were persecuted under the Roman Emporer Claudius II. Thirdly, in The American Book of Days, by Jane

European countries spread the custom of sending valentine's in a manner that only the American greeting card
companies have surpassed. Simply because the tradition started in France and England does not eliminate the fact that
Hallmark and company have emmassed a huge profit from the tradition. And finally, I am not a he.

Carowinds entertains for all
By Bridget Hemenway
Staff Writer
Aside from the seven
rollercoasters that draw thrill-seek-
ers to Paramount's Carowinds
theme park in Charlotte, N.C the
park offers an outstanding amount
of family entertainment.
"With more and more mem-
bers of the family entering the work
force in the '90s, we are seeing a
trend toward vacations that are
more frequent, shorter in duration,
and closer to home explains
Carowinds Executive Vice Presi-
dent and General Manager Walt
The adjacent 60-acre
Carowinds Campground beckons
those with campers and trailers to
stay inexpensively and enjoy the
park longer. The state-of-the- art
Palladium Amphitheatre, also ad-
jacent to the theme park, adds to the
visitor's entertainment experience
by hosting top concert acts from
May through October.
Paramount's Carowinds' 11
theme areas immerse guests in a
world that brings to life the magic of
Paramount movie television and
publishing properties.
A vital part of any park is the
stage entertainment. The shows at
Carowinds offer incredible variety
and value with performances by
professional figure skaters and the
southeast's most talented singers,
dancers and musicians.
rhe rising popularity of figure
skating is met by a 30-minute ice
show production in the Paramount
Theatre. Eleven professional skat-
ers thrill audiences in "Paramount

includes an ice show,
merchandising (such
as "Star Trek left)
and expanded theme
areas including
Wayne's World,
and the Palladium
Ampitheatre. But,
please, don't feed the
memorable movie moments.
There are many attractions to
hold the attention of young chil-
dren such as the Hanna-Barbara
characters in Hanna-Barbara Land
which has miniature versions of
many rides that adults enjoy else-
where throughout the park. The
BusytownCafe features carrot- and
pickle-shaped play cars from the
children's book The Island by Rich-
ard Scarry and also includes climb-
ing nets and colorful ball crawls.
Shopping and dining are also
an integral part of the Paramount
Carowinds experience. Shops are
filled with new collections of Para-
mount movie television, publish-
ing and corporate logo merchan-
dise. Featured items include one-
of-a-kind licensed Star Trek items
exclusive to the Paramount Parks,
Paramount movie posters and
sweatshirts embroidered with the
Paramount logo.

cools the adventurous park-goers
on hot summer days. The six-acre

Blue Mountain
Blue Mountain
A band to watch out for in the
near future is Blue Mountain. Their
first CD is self-titled, and on their
own 4-Barrel record label. This in
itself is very impressive.
They come from Oxford, Miss,
and their sound reflects these sur-
roundings. Blue Mountain formed
two years ago, but two of the three
members (Cary Hudson, and Laurie
Stirratt) were in a band called the
Hilltops before they joined with
drummer Matt Brennan, who was
formerly from The Flinghammer.
They feature a rustic, southern
ers well; it seems to get the
more you play it. The sour iv . ds
from early southern rock and iolk
music. Two obvious influences are
70s musicians Gram Parsons and
Neil Young. Blue Mountain seems
to have the same kind of lasting
value thatartists like Youngpossess.
One of the most interesting as-
pects of the band is how much noise
they make for three artists. A lot of
variety isoffered. Cary Hudsonplays
electric and acoustic guitar, banjo,
mandolin and harmonica, and sings
as well. Laurie Stirratt plays bass
and does vocals. Matt Brennan
rounds out the three on the drums.
The first two songs on the al-
bum are titled "Bud" and "Let's
Ride "Bud" immediately gets your

Schindler's could sweep
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
The Academy Awards will
be given out at the Dorothy Chan-
dler Pavilion on Monday March
21st. One of the fringe benefits of
reviewing films all year is that
you have an artistic license to pon-
tificate about the Oscars. Last year
I only missed one of the major
nominations�I did not think
Marisa Tomei would grab a best
supporting actress statuette. With
83 percent correct I feel even more
confident making predictions for
this year, so without further ado
I boldly try to assess the tastes
of Hollywood for 1993.
Best Picture: Almost no
competition exists in this
category. Though The Pi-
ano has been highly
praised it, like last year's
The Crying Game, was
made outside the Holly-
wood system and thus will
only win the minor award,
just as Neil Jordan did last
year for The Crying Game, of
best original screenplay. The
Remains of the Day was a truly
remarkable film but will un-
fortunately be overshadowed
this year because of the mag-
nificent slate of films to
choose from. The Fu-
gitive and In the Name
of the Father were hon-
ored by being nomi-
nated but really
have no charce.
Which leaves the
one picture that
stands head and
shoulders above the rest of the
field, Schindler's List. Steven
Spielberg's masterpiece will win
a plethora of awards including
this one. For the third year in a
row the film that deserves to win
will actually win. (In case you
have forgotten, the last two best
picture winners were Unforgiven
and Silence of the Lambs).
Best Actor: Tom Hanks will
likely win his first Oscar for his
role as a lawyer stricken with
AIDS in Philadelphia. The Acad-
emy loves to give the award to
someone with an illness or
handicap and Hollywood
adores Hanks. Although Liam
Neeson deserves the award as
much as Hanks, he will only
win if Schindler's List sweeps
nearly every award. Since the
Academy has lately honored the
categories individually instead
of say voting for the same film
in every category, Neeson will
have to wait for another year.
Daniel Day-Lewis and Anthony
Hopkins both turned in criti-
cally-lauded performances but
they have each won before so
they will be left to reminisce
over past glories this year.
Laurence Fishburne is hon-
ored to have been nominated
for What's Love Got to Do
With It so he, like Angela
Bassett in the same film,
will have to wait for an-
other year.
Best Actress: In the
easiest category to pick,
Holly Hunter will go home
smiling for her work on The
Piano. Angela Bassett,
Stockard Charming, Emma
Thompson and Debra
Winger at least can relax at
the ceremony knowing with
the utmost certainty that they
have nothing to be ner-
vous about.
Best Supporting
Actor: For a while
when the Oscar nomi-
nations were an-
nounced Tommy
Lee Jones seemed
like a shoe-in for
his. role as Lt.
Gerard in The Fugitivebut Ralph
Fiennes has picked up a lot of
support and press coverage for
his masterful turn as a brutal
Nazi in Schindler's List. Though
Fiennes may win in a Schindler
sweep, Jones is my pick for the
humanity and humor he
brought to his role.
Best Supporting Actor:
Like the other actress category,
this one seems easy to predict.
Winona Ryder will win the only

� Charles Bukowski, a street poet,
novelist and screenwriter who wal-

Bukowski's works came
over a lifetimeof drinking and menial
labor. He wrote short stories, novels,
screenplays and more than 1,000 po-

and frequently pornographic �
much like his own life.
Bukowski wrote thescreen-
play for Barfly, a critically acclaimed
1987 movie about two down-and-

Rourke and Faye Dunaway. It was
based on a period in his own life.
He wrote the novels "Post

�said more important factors were
smoking, high blood pressure, high
cholesterol and a lack of exercise.
Candy, who was 6 feet 3
inches tall, smoked, and associates
said he appeared startingly heavy
in recent months. He had dieted at
the Pritikin Longevity Center and
lost 75 pounds for 1985's Summer

Melanie Griffith was with husband
Don Johnson at their ranch outside
Aspen, Colo hoursafter the actress
filed for divorce.
The petition, filed Friday in Los
Angeles County Superior Court by
Griffith's lawyer, asked for primary
custody of the couple's 4-year-old
daughter and cited irreconcilable
But late Friday, the couple's
publicist said both stars, almost five
years into their second marriage,
were giving reconciliation a second

making their marriage better, not
bringing it to an end Elliot Mintz
attorney, Judith Shapiro, were not
immediately returned.
Griffith left home at 14 to move
in with Johnson, who was 22 at the
time. They married in 1976 and di-
vorced less than two years later.
The actress remarried Johnson
in 1989. Dakota Mayi Johnson was
born later that vear.
Johnson, 44, and Griffith, 36,

(AP)-This country throws out
enough tires each yea r to more than
girdle the globe. That's if they were
setsideby side upright. End toend,
lying down, they'd be four deep
around the equator.
By the end of the century, they
all may be put to use, the tire indus-
try says. The Environmental Pro-
tection Agency agrees.
But there's an "if
While states try to clear away
anywhere from 1.5 billion to 3 bil-
lion tires already piled on road-
sides, dumps and vacant lots, about
175 million a year are added to the
The U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency estimates that one
tire is tossed each year for every
man, woman and child in the coun-
try, more than 250 million nation-
There are markets for 75 mil-
lion to 80 million. The rest are piled
up, shredded and stockpiled, or �
where it's allowed�put into land-
Most states no longer let land-
fills take whole tires, because they
can capture gas and squeeze up
through the other garbage, even
breaking through the heavy layer
of clay used to cap the landfill.
A few states ban dumping tires
entirely. The rest require them to be
cut or shredded. That saves space,
since tires are large pockets of air
encased in rubber. It also keeps
water from pooling in the tires and
creating a breeding place for mos-
quitoes, algae, germs and other un-
Uses for recycled tires are as
varied as imagination. Stripsof rub-
ber are cut into shoe soles or welded
into mats for erosion control or tem-
porary roads. Bales of compressed
tires support a golf course and cre-
ate its drainage system. Crumbled
rubber becomes part of hockey
pucks, roads, horse racing tracks,
NCAA tracks.
Most go up in smoke, creating
powerforcementplants, paper fac-
tories and homes
"If you take a 3x3-inch square
of tire and put it in your right hand,
and you put a 3x3 piece of coal in
your left, the tire in your right hand
gives off twice the heat at less cost.
It also pollutes less than coal says
Andy Franks, one of the growing
company of used-tire entrepre-
Anyone who's ever been
downwind of burning rubber will
doubt the pollution claim.
"If you're talking about a tire
fire, there are an awful lot of pol-
lutants that get released says
Hope Pillsbury of the recycling
section in the EPA's office of solid
waste in Washington. "But high-
temperature incineration is a dif-
ferent story
"Tires burn in the same
ballparkas coal. If you've got high-
sulphur coal, it probably burns
dirtier than tires. Plus you've gota
lot of pollution control equip-
The prediction that all scrap
tires could be recycled by the end
of 1998 comes from John
Serumgard, chairman of the Scrap
Tire Management Council and vice
president of its parent organiza-
tion, the Rubber Manufacturing
However, his equation de-
pends on the federal law requiring
states to use rubber mixed with
asphalt on their roads.
If the law is enforced, up to 70
million tires a year could go into
highways. However, there's no en-
forcement money in this year's
budget, and no telling when there
will be.
Among other things, not ev-
eryone agrees that the rubber-as-
phalt mix is a good thing. Asphalt
can be recycled. Rubber-asphalt,
or RUMAC, cannot.
Still, Serumgard says, rubber
recycling has come an incredible
way in less than a decade, espe-
cially in the past few years.
"In 1985, the EPA estimated
that less than 6 percent of all scrap
tires were used in any positive
way he says. "By 1990, it was
10.7 percent
Presently, about one-third of
all discarded tires are recycled.
' 'We would estimate that prob-
ably 5 million are going into
ground rubber applications, prob-
ably another 5 million are going
into civil engineering applica-
tions Serumgard says. "The bal-
ance, about 70 million, are going
into fuel uses
The growth of the industry
can be tracked in the pages of Scrap
Tire News, which Mary Sikora and
her family first published eight
years ago. The inaugural issue was
four pages. It now runs 20 pages a
month. The January 1994 special
issue comparing the laws of all 50
states took 36 pages.
The Scrap Tire Users Direc-
tor) also published by the Sikoras,
has grown from 1,200 listings to
2,000 over three editions.
Which is not to sav that tire
recycling is a fail-safe business.
Kenny Stewart added $175,000
worth of shredders and conveyor
belts to his Riverside Recycling
plant after Louisiana decreed that
every tire sale must include a $2
fee to pay for clearing away old
He sold the business 15
months later. "We couldn't com-
pete with someone who is work-
ing out of the back of a pickup
truck and throwing them out into
a back alley or abandoned lot
Stewart says.
About six months later, the
woman who bought Stewart's tire
equipment called to tell him she
was selling out, too.
Louisiana has recycling rules,
but just proposed a new set in
Februa ry because the current ones,
approved in 1992, don't work.
When new tires are sold, the
seller takes in an extra $2. Half
goes to the state Department of
Environmental Quality to enforce
the law. The other half is sup-
posed to cover the cost of proper
Tire dealers take the lowest
bid � often under $1 � and the
lowest bidder sometimes dumps
tires, says Michael Vince, pro-
gram manager for recycling in
the DEQ's solid waste division.
Many other states havesimi-
lar laws, but none has been able
tostop "tire jockeys" from dump-
ing tires on vacant lots or road-
"As far as I know, in the state
of Connecticut, we are the only
ones with a permit, yet there are
beaucoup tire jockeys in Con-
necticut says Bruce Hayn, gen-
eral manager at Oxford Tire Sup-
ply in Plainfield.
His company collects 100,000
tons of tires a year�some 13.75
million �from Connecticut and
11 surrounding states. About 20
percent are in good enough shape
to sell for re-use or retreading.
The remaining 11 million are fuel
for Oxford's sister company,
Exeter Energy Co.
"That's 300 tons a day �
approximately 30,000 tires a day,
seven days a week Hayn says.
"It works out to approximately
enough electricity for 30,000
homes, or about one tire per day
per home
Oxford Tire is paid about $1
for every car tire it collects, al-
though large tires from front-
end loaders and other heavy
equipment fetch as much as $200
Exeter's plant produces 30
megawatts a day. It uses about
1.5 megawatts itself, and sells
the rest to Northeast Utilities for
6 to 8 cents a kilowatt.
"The facility in Connecticut
can utilize 10 million tires a year
Serumgard says. "You say 10
million isn't much compared to
250 million scrap tires. Let me
tell you, 10 million is an awful lot
of tires if you have to bring them
to one particular spot

The Irates (men's team) and the Helios (women's team) are expecting
good things this season in the Ultimate Frisbee National.

Staff Writer
1 he East Carolina men's Li-
timate Frisbee team, the Irates,
began what could be their first
C ollegiate National Champion-
ship season with two impressive
tournaments in the South over
Spring Break.
Ultimate has over 350 col-
lege teams across the nation, as
well as more than bOO Open Men's
and W omens' teams. Ultimate is
governed by the Ultimate Play-
ers Association, the UI'A, which
sanctions tournaments all over
the world. Fast Carolina also
boasts a fine women's team, the
1 lelios, who are trying to qualify
tor Collegiate Nationals. The
bates have been to Nationals
three of the past four seasons,
and are the defending Mid-At-
lantic Regional Champions.
first, the Irates traveled to
Gainesville, Fla. to participate in
1 rostbreaker, which traditionally
marks the beginning of the spring
season In their first game of the
year, the bates toppled second-
seeded Chain I ightning of At-
lanta. 13-10. In the next game, a
3 12 hour marathon, the Irates
took the host team, Vicious Cycle,
to the brink of defeat before fall-
ing themselves, lb-14.
Chain Lightning and Vicious
Cycle both qualified for Open
Men's National and World
Championships lastseason, with
Vicious Cycle becoming the first
and only team to ever beat the
eventual champions from New
York in pool play. The Irates lost
in the quarter-finals of this tour-
nament, but the weekend was
still viewed as a success.
After a week off, the Irates
came into Atlanta's prestigious
tournament, Terminus, as the No.
9 seed. On Saturday, in their first
collegiate test of the year, the
Irates defeated the defending
Collegiate National Champions
from UNC-W, 13-6, setting the
tone for the next day.
On Sunday, the Irates
knocked off the No.l seed in the
tournament, Shazam, from D.C
12-4. The Irates then strutted into
the semi-finals of this UP A-sanc-
tioned event, having to play
against the No. 4 ranked team in
the world, Raleigh-Durham's
Burning Ring of Fire. Ring was
the No. 2 seed in this tourna-
ment, and the Irates gave them
all they could handle before los-
ing, 15-12. The Irates may have

was named the Colonial
Athletic Association Plaver
of the Week on March 14.
The senior batted .455 with
two home runs in seven
games for the Pirates last
week, when they went 6-1.
"It's a well-deserved
honor said ECU head
coach Gary Overton. "He
had an exceptional week in
many ways. He made so
many things happen for
In ECU's first confer-
ence series of the season
against UNC-Wllmington,
Borel batted .500, going 5-
for-10 with a triple and a
home run. For the week,
including three games
against Temple and one
against Yale, Borel amassed
a slugging percentage of
.909, stole eight bases and
Jamie Borel
scored 10 runs while driv-
ing in five.
What makes Borel's
honor even more gratifying
is the fact that he has played
injured virtually all season.
He dislocated his left shoul-
der in the Pirates' season-
opening series with Florida,
but with rehabilitation, has
played in every ECU con-
test this season.
"As well as having the
shoulder injury, Jamie was
injured again against UNC-
"He slid into home and cut
the fifth finger on his left
hand on something, prob-
ably the catcher's shin guard.
It was a deep cut that re-
quired five stitches

Gretzky on verge of being all-time scorer in NHL history
(AP) � It's funny how every-
body can see him all the time, yet
reallv not see him at all.
By leapsandbounds,by endorse-
ments and televised appearances �
bvany measure imaginable�Wayne
Gretzky is the most famous, most
rewarded, most accomplished ath-
lete that hockev has ever produced.
Precisely because he is a hockey
player, however, he may also be the
most underappreciated athlete any
so-called "major"sporthaseverpro-
"When you sit back and look at
all the things he's done, it's sad to go
in to some of the to wns we p lay in and
still see empty seats Los Angeles
Kings owner Bruce McNall is saying.
McNaU's voice trails off for a
moment, some of that sadness min-
gling with resignation. He pauses to
watch a Zamboni lazily resurface
the ice between periods of Sunday's
NHL game in packed-to-the-raf ters,
soon-to-be-leveled Chicago Sta-
"A few years from now
McNall begins, "everybody will
swear they were there when he got
goal No. 801. Just like everybody
said they were there to see Henry
Aaron catch Babe Ruth
Though he would not score in
Sunday afternoon's 3-3 tie with the
Blackhawks, the man who came to
sunny Los Angeles from Edmonton
six years ago for a king's ransom
Howe's career goal-scoring record.
It is the only NHL record worth
owning that Gretzky does not al-
ready possess. And when he ties and
or somewhere else later this month,
he will have bettered a mark once
thought unassailable in just his 15th
professional season. Howe, by com-
parison, needed 26 seasons to get his
801 goals.
"I've felt pressure my whole
life Gretzky said after the game.
"Each circumstance is a different
kind of pressure
It took the reporters gathered
around him a moment to under-
stand that Gretzky was not talking
about personal goals.
"My job isn't quite halfway fin-
ished he continued. "We built re-
spectability. We built hockey up in
southern California. Now we'd like
to get a championship
Though history suggests it is
dangerous to believe otherwise, this
last task may be too much � even
for Gretzky. He won four titles in
five seasons in his outpost at
Edmonton, but his supporting cast
was considerably stronger and he
was considerably younger.
Though still only 33, the weight
of his accomplishments is apparent
� this week at least � in the sag of
his slim shoulders. The recent death
of good friend and business partner
John Candy has made the game seem
more like work than play, and the
a ttentionhis pursuit of Howe's mark
has drawn is clearly beginning to
wear on Gretzky's nerves.
To make matters worse, Howe
hasbecome less than gracious about
his legacy in recent days. When he
was a 5-year-old, Gretzky so idol-
ized Howe that when he received a
Red Wings jersey for Christmas, he
wore it out in a year. And when
Gretzky passed him in career points,
Howe was on hand to offer his con-
gratulations in person. But sud-
denly the old man has taken to
demanding that his 174 goals
scored during a stint in the short-
lived World Hockey Association
becounted toward his career-scor-
ing mark.
Gretzky hascarefully phrased
his answers to avoid reflecting
badly on Howe, but it seems to
have added to his own burden.
"The last thing I want to do is
drag this thing out. I've only got
three to go to tie and I'd like to get
them quickly Gretzky said, "so
people can get back to what they
have to do instead of focusing on

(AP)�Jim McMahon hasbeen
deemed too expensive by the Min-
nesota Vikings, and may join his
fourth organization since leaving
the Chicago Bears in 1989.
The Vikings on Monday cut
loose the quarterback they had
hoped would put them in the Su-
per Bowl.
McMahon would have made
about S2.1 million in 1994 had the
Vikings retained him. A clause in
his contract gave the Vikings until
today to make a decision.
McMahon, who will be 35 be-
fore next season, is now an unre-
stricted free agent and still could
return to the Vikings.
"We're keeping all of our op-
tions open, including bringing Jim
back Vikings vice president Jeff
Diamond said. "We did not want
to pay the bonus required and have
it count against the salary cap if we
decide not to bring him back
"We have said from the start
that this year we are going to keep

Minnesota also holds exclusive

The Vikings went after free
agent Scott Mitchell, but lost him
to the Detroit Lions. Diamond said
the Vikings may pursue other vet-
eran quarterbacks. Jim Everett of
the Los Angeles Rams has been
mentioned in recent reports.
McMahon was at his best in
the mid-1980s with Chicago, which
beat New England in the Super
Bowl after the 1985 season.
He had a reputation of a rebel
and a hell-raiser. He called himself
"the punky QB" in the "Super Bowl

Ward adds another trophy to shelf
(AP) � National football
championship, Heisman Trophy
and now the Sullivan Award.
It's been a whirlwind three
months for Charlie Ward.
"I'm still surprised the
Florida State quarterback said
Monday night after he was named
the nation's outstanding amateur
athlete for 1993.
"I guess this is a bit different
than the Heisman. I kind of knew
what was going to happen there,
but I wasn't really sure. Tonight
was a big surprise. I'm just very
thankful that I had the opportu-
nity to be here
Ward, 23, was among 10 final-
ists for the Sullivan presented each
year since 1930 by the U.S. Ama-
teur Athletic Union. He also is the
first football player to win the
Sullivan since Army teammates
Doc Blanchard in 1945 and Arnold
Tucker in 1946 and the first winner
from a team sport since baseball's
Jim Abbott in 1987.
Ward quarterbacked Florida
State to its first national champion-
ship and was the most valuable
player in the Seminoles' 18-16 Or-
ange Bowl victory over Nebraska.
He passed for 3,032 yards and
27 touchdowns, with only four in-
terceptions in 327 attempts last sea-
son. After the bowl game,he joined
the FSU basketball team and started
16 games at point guard, averag-
ing 10.5 points a game. The Semi-
noles finished their basketball sea-
son 13-14.
He still doesn't know � or
won't say � whether he'll try to
play in the NFL or the NBA.
The Sullivan winner is chosen
each year in a vote by more than
2,000 people, including members
of the AAU, theU.S. OlympicCom-
mittee, past Sullivan winners and
selected news media.
The other finalists this vear
were Bruce Baumgartner, wres-
tling; Shannon Miller, gymnastics;
Brian Boitano, figure skating; Gail
Devers, track and field; Bobby
Hurley, basketball; Dan Jansen,
speedskating; DanO'Brien, decath-
lon; Sheryl Swoopes, basketball;
and Jenny Thompson, sw-imming.
Ward, who was presented the
award by last year's winner,
speedskater Bonnie Blair, is only
the sixth Sullivan winner from a
team sport.
"It feels good. Winning the
Heisman, 1 was in select company,
too he said. "The Sullivan Award
means I'm in with people who win
gold medals. I just can't imagine
winning a gold medal. But we all

campus? That was Tuesday. On
Monday, the ESPN cameras moved
in to film a spot tha t's a lready aired.
Likewise, television crews
from most of the major stations in
the state have shown up to
chronicle the tale surrounding the
team at the Rev. Jerry Falwell's
"Every time you turn around,
someone's asking you about it
senior guard Brett Anthony said.
Mitch Goodman, Liberty's
sports information director, said
there have been at least 100 inter-
view requests for coach Jeff Meyer
since Sunday, when it was an-
nounced the Flames would play
defending champion North Caro-
lina. Among those who havecalied
are representatives from The Nezv
YorkTimes, The Washington Post and
The Los Angeles Times.
John Jeansonne, a reporter for
New York-based Newsday, arrived
Tuesday morning to cover what he
called "one of the nice little stories
out there
"Liberty is obviously just a
'good hook for several reasons
Jeansonne said. "They're playing
the top seed, the team with prob-
ably the most recognition in the
country. Andbecauseof theFalwell
connection, people recognize the
name Liberty.
"And when you put all that
together, it just seemed pretty ob-
ESPN's coverage on Monday
first brought the team's story to the
nation's attention, liighlighted no
doubt by Chapman's now-famous
reply to an interviewer that North
Carolina was his favorite team in
the tournament.
"Then he asked me who my
second-favorite team was and I told
him Liberty said Chapman, a
Charlotte, N.C native and a long-
time Tar Heels fan. "He was kind
of tickled about that
It's hard to find a looser bunch
than the Liberty team these days.
Non-practice time is filled with
clowning and singing. Most play-
ers are approaching interviews in
the same vein.
Meyer said the group has per-
formed well under the scrutiny.
"I told the kids, 'I am as proud
of theway you'vehandled the me-
dia and the interviews as I am of
the way you've played basketball
" Meyersaid. "They've been great
With the help of a graduate
assistant hired just two weeks ago,
Liberty's two-man sports informa-
tion staff has handled the wave of
media attention.
Goodman said the current
crunch has made for a lot of late
nights. He left the office at 4 a.m.
one morning last week, he said.
"You only have so many days
and so many hours to get every-
thing out Goodman said.
Like the public relations folks,
the Liberty playersaredealing with
the crest of exposure. It will die
down soon, after the team's ex-
pected loss to North Carolina on
Friday, but not before they've re-
ceived a smidgen of what people
such as Michael Jordan endure.
"I honestly couldn't imagine
it Anthony said. "I can't imagine
guys like Jordan and all the media
and how they handle it
But it's fun while it lasts.

rience for all the guys
Clemson,ACC and Ellis bid sad farewell
(AP) � Part coach, part coun-
try and western singer, part come-
dian � there's no doubt Cliff Ellis
made his mark on Atlantic Coast
Conference basketball.
Ellis came to Clemson, noted
for its powerful football teams, a
decade ago to generate interest in a
sport not many in the small South
Carolina town really cared about.
And on Friday in the
quarterfinals of the league tourna-
ment, there was genuine optimism
the Tigers could defea t No. 5 Duke,
considering they played them to 4-
and 6-point losses earlier this sea-
But with just seconds left, Ellis
looked at the scoreboard and knew
it was over. The Blue Devils held a
double-digit lead and eventually
won 77-64.
His ACC coaching career had
come to a close.
t hit me with about 11 sec-
onds to go said Ellis, who an-
nounced his resignation earlier in
the year. "I don't remember why. I
just looked at the clock and said,
'Hey, it's over
Ellis, theall-time victory leader
at the school with 175, became a
popular coach among his ACC col-
leagues. Many gave him going-
away gifts as he toured the league
for one final time. He waved kisses
at fans who gave him standing
The 48-year-old coach fought
back tears during his postgame
comments and final goodbyes Fri-
"I think you close chapters in
your life that are very positive. You
look back and you have all the
emotions � the emotions of hap-
piness, a feeling somewhat of a
celebration, but of sadness too
Ellis said.
"Anytime you finish anything,
it's not easy to finalize it headded.
"Anytime you lose something that
is special, you have all the emo-
tions. It's something I have a very
warm feeling about
Ellis recalled his third season
at Clemson, when his team cut the
nets down after a runner-up finish
in the ACC.
"What teams cut the nets down
when they have a runner-up fin-
ish? But when you hadn't had one
in 30 years, you do that
Ellis then took his 1987, '89
and '90clubs to the NCAA tourna-
ment. His 1990 team won the ACC
regular-season title with such fu-
ture NBA players as Dale Davis
and Elden Campbell.
"There were a lot of hurdles
that we were able to overcome. I
think tradition has gained in this
Ellis said. "In the '50s, when the
ACC started, Clemson (football)
was going to a lot of Gator Bowl
and Orange Bowls and Sugar
Bowls, but in basketball, the Dukes
and the Carolinas and the N.C.
States were making the noise in
"I think as the torch is passed,
the next person will be able to build
on this tradition
Ellis has released a compact
disc that concludes with "Amaz-
ing Grace a tribute to the late Jim
Valvano. He also didn't rule out
coaching again.
"We'll look at that opportu-
nity if the right one does come. Life
has been good to me. I will do it
only if the situation is right he

attention to baseball? And when
was the last time the center of that
attention showed up early and
stayed late to practice? When was
the last time he signed countless
autographs, showed humor and
grace and actually made people
believe he was enjoying himself in
the bargain?
The answer is a long, long time.
Even Jerrv Reinsdorf, the White
Sox sometimes-contentious owner
recognizes that. It may be hard to
agree with Reinsdorf on most
things having to do with baseball,
considering theshameless way he's
manipulated his colleagues since
leading the 1992coup that toppled
commissioner Fay Vincent.
But like him or not,
Reinsdorf's take on this has the
undeniable ring of truth.
He hits a foul ball, they cheer
him. People love him.
"The negativity comes from
people in the media who seem to
think that baseball involves na-
tional security, or else it's a reli-
gion, and we've desecrated a reli-
gion Reinsdorf said.
He went on to point out that
the two- or three-dozen at-bats
Jordan accumulates by the time
the team folds its tent a id heads
north won't interfere with
anybody's chances of making
the big-league team.
And though Reinsdorf
would never say this, on the
plus side, Jordan'sendless hours
of batting practice is keeping
