Jarvis fire smolders all day

Greenville fire engines responded quickly to the fire in Jarvis residence
hall, which went undetected until late yesterday afternoon.
Staff Writer
An electrical short circuit and
some smoldering insulation in the
attic of Jarvis residence hall forced
several residents to evacuate their
dorm early yesterday afternoon,
Greenville fire officials said Mon-
day.
A crowd of about 75 students,
administrators and media looked
on as firefighters broke out the
windows in theatric to allow smoke
to escape. The firefighters also re-
moved the insulation that had
burned.
Some Jarvis residents said the
smell of smoke was evident early
Monday morning. "I had been
smelling something since early this
morning said Jennifer Pitts, who
lives on the second floor of Jarvis.
Many residents said tha t they
too had smelled the smoke since as
early as 6 a.m. However, they
thought it was something burning
in the kitchen. One student was
told that the smell was nothing
more than some rotten trash.
"I smelled something around
9:45 this morning said Taffy Tyler,
a Jarvis resident. "Everyone
thought that it was something
burning in the kitchen
Firefighters battled the
smoke for about 30 minutes before
turning the remaining clean-up
over to ECU Facilities Services.
Firefighters used sparse
amounts of water to isolate the hot
spots and to minimize water dam-
age to the dorm, one firefighter
said. Reported damage consisted
of several charred rafters and the
burned insulation, said Greenville
Fire Chief Raymond Carney. Stu-
dents were allowed back in a few
hours later.
"Insulation can smokier for
several hours Carney said. "By
the time we got here the whole attic
was filled with smoke
The suspected cause of the
fire was a faulty light fixture on the
second floor. A massive amount of
heat built up, causing the insula-
tion and rafters in the attic to smol-
der, Carney said. He was unsure
whether the fire was a result of the
actual light fixture or the wiring
around it.
No one was injured in the
fire, but residents were displaced
from their rooms for a couple of
hours as Greenville firefighters
searched the attic for hot spots.
Ambulances were called as a pre-
cautionary measure in case anyone
suffered from smoke inhalation.
The residents were returned
to their rooms a few hours later
after power was restored in the
dorm. Carney said the dorm rooms
on the second floor should not have
been affected by either the smoke
or the water.
Political figure
stirs up campus
By Jason Williams
Assistant News Editor
The subject of many re-
cent letters to The East Carolin-
ian, candidate for Congress
Walter B. Jones Jr. spoke at the
weekly meeting of the ECU
College Republicans last
Wednesday night.
Jones is running as a Re-
publican for the U.S. House of
Representatives in the Third
District, which encompasses
most of Greenville and ECU.
That seat is currently occupied
by Democrat Martin Lancaster.
Jones is the son of the late
Walter B. Jones, the long-time
Democratic congressman from
Farmville. The younger Jones
served in theN.C. House for 10
years before making an unsuc-
cessful bid for Congress as a
Democrat in 1992. He ex-
plained why he changed party
affiliation after the election.
"Back in 1989 and '90, I
was not happy with the direc-
tion of the Democratic leader-
shipJonessaid. "Threeof four
years ago I thought very seri-
ously about changing my party
affiliation, yet I was hoping that
the Democratic party, instead
of going to the left we could
hold it back toward the
middle. But it just wasn't pos-
sible.
"When I lost the race for
United States Congress in
1992,1 was never bitter, and I
thank the good Lord for that
Jones said. "I was disap-
pointed, but never bitter.
"In 1989,1 was one of the
20 Democrats that put to-
gether a coalition with the Re-
publicans to unseat the
Speaker of the House, at that
time it was Liston Ramsey
Jones said. "Liston Ramsey
was a fine gentleman, but he
allowed a closed few people
to make the major decisions
on appropriations matters.
There were a group of Demo-
crats who felt that the system
was not good for the people

speaker, Joe Mavretic, whom

Prize Patrol to visit ECU Dance team unable to compete
You could be next! Just don't expect Ed McMahon

Staff Writer
Almost everyone receives
a sweepstakes entry at some
time in their lives, but do they
usually expect one from ECU?
Students signing up for
housing in Jones residence hall
this week received their own
sweepstakes
entry from
ECU'S
Housing
and Dining
Services.
This living-
on-campus
sweepstakes
offers stu-
dents a chance to win grand
prizes including a free room
for spring semester '95, a nine-
plus meal plan or a dorm re-
frigerator.

Amaro, director of housing,
and Frank Salamon, director of
Dining Services adorn the
maniila envelopes residents be-
gan receiving in February, in
similar fashion to Ed

McMahon's tactics.
"We tried to put some ex-
citement in the process, so we
came up with this sweepstakes
to give students something to
talk about, something to laugh
about, to feel good and have fun
with Salamon said.
This dynamic duo, along
with members of their staff, will
be on the road
April 25. They
are ECU's ver-
sion of a prize
patrol and could
be headed your
way if you live
on campus.
Over 200
T-shirts have
been given away prior to sign-
up and keys received in the mail
could unlock a treasure chest
holding glass candy jars filled
with treats and a coupon for free
pizza.
Constant fighting over who
portrays Ed McMahon on the
sweepstakes envelopes proves
that they are out to have fun.
Amaro and Salamon are plan-
ning to drive across campus in a
van marked prize patrol, and
wearing blue jackets, they will
present the prizes to residents
when they least expect it along
with flowers and balloons. Next
year's sweepstakes envelopes
will be covered with pictures of
the winners.
"We are also doing this to
generate a lot of interest for the
changes that are coming to Hous-
ing and Dining Services
Salamon said.
Change is a word ECU stu-
dents are constantly hearing.
What's new for next fall? Cable
television in the dorms to start,
the tremendous Todd Dining
Hall will be fully operational,
White Hall has been renovated
to accomodate private residents,
the Wright Place will begin re-
construction in February. Hous-
ing is also planning to install
community service desks in Belk,
Cotten and another dorm on the
west end of campus.

opens, Salamon is planning to

Health Center expansion finds support
By Shannon Cooper
Staff Writer
Bulldozers and "road
closed " signs have become a com-
mon sight on campus as a result of
ECU's massive remodeling and
expansion plan. Now the admin-
istration is focusing on the Stu-
dent Health Services Building and
not a minute too soon, according
to one administrator.
"We are really out of space
said Kay VanNortwick, director
of Student Health Services. "There
are treatment rooms in closets,
and we have no room for records
or X-rays. We need to add a wing
in the back of the building
The additional wing will cre-
ate more space allowing for two
treatment rooms for each doctor,
an expanded pharmacy and class-
rooms for health education
classes, VanNortwick said.
"Our major concern is confi-
dentiality she said. "We don't
have enough space to talk to stu-
dents in private
The student health services
building was constructed in 1930.
The building has not been ex-
panded since 1961, when student
enrollment at ECU was 5,883.
Since then, the student popula-
tion has grown form 5,000 to al-
most 18,000.
"The health center has not
grown with the university or its
enrollment said Keith Dyer,
president of ECU's Student Gov-
ernment Association (SGA).
During the last four years,
only four new positions have been
created.
Justin Conrad, chair of the
Student Welfare Committee, no-
ticed this and acted on it. The
result was a resolution support-
ing the expansion and remodel-
ing of student health services.
"There were a lot of com-
plaints from people Conrad said.

The ECU Cheerleading and
Dance teams, despite being se-
lected to compete in the national
championships for their respec-
tive national titles on April 9, can-
not attend the competition. ECU
will not pay for the trip, and the
teams are not allowed to raise their
own money.
The teams received unpaid
invitations to the competitions, and
ECU does not provide money to
teams for unpaid competitions.
This is the third year that the
dance team has qualified for this
competition and it is the first year
for the cheerleading squad. ECU
paid to send the dance team for the
past two years, but after last year's
competition the athletic depart-
ment sent out a memo informing
all teams that they would no longer
be able to accept unpaid invita-
tions.
This policy is the result of
ECU's teams getting better and
qualifying for these competitions
more often, and therefore being
invited. However, the competition
will not pay for schools to attend
and compete unless they earned a
specific placement, said Lee Work-
man, assistant director of the ath-
letic department.
"We cannot afford to send
all of our teams to these champi-
onships and it would be unfair to
only send some teams, if others
qualify Workman said.

ECU's Dance Team, which ranked seventh in the nation last year,
cannot find funding to attend this year's competition.
The cheerleading squad fin-
ished 13th, but needs to place in
the top 10 for a paid invitation.
The dance team placed 11th, but
needed to place in the top five to
receive a paid invitation. At the
competition, all teams start
equally and any team has the
chance to finish first. Last yea r the
dance team placed seventh.
The teams arejudged froma
prepared tape and invited tocom-
pete based on these performances.
The dance team practices in the
locker room in the sports medi-
cine building. However, the team
could not tape in there, so prac-
tices were held at midnight, af-
ter intramural sports were fin-
ished with the gym.
"We weren't pleased with
the tape said dance team cap-
tain Alto Gary. "Maybe if we
had decent facilities, we could
prepare a better tape and place
higher
"Almost all of us have de-
cided not to return to the team
next year Gary said, "and many
of the cheerleaders have decided
to transfer. I hate to see the pro-
grams crumble after so many

Aftershocks keep California awake at night
LOS ANGELES (AP) � The
nightmare recurred for Diane Wil-
liams and others who had begun to
forget the deadly Northridge earth-
quake when a jarring 5.3-magni-
tude aftershock shook Southern
California.

Negotiations begin as tensions rise again
Stanford student is pinball wizard
He's not deaf, dumb or blind, but Bowen Kerins sure plays some
mean pinball. The Stanford University sophomore launched himself
into stardom this February by flipping more balls, tilting more lights
and racking up more points than anyone. He's the World's Greatest
Pinball Player. Kerins' skill and luck put him over 600 competitors in
the fourth annual Professional and Amateur Pinball Association's
International Pinball Championships, known as PAPA 4. Otherwise
unnoticed before the final round, Kerins hurled himself to the top
with a phenomenal score of 675,729,540. Prior to the last round, Kerins
was only in ninth place and last year's PAPA winner, Lvman Sheats,
scored over 1 billion just practicing for the final match, the machines
used for the competition were examples of flashy technology, Kerins
said. For instance, "Star Trek: The Next Generation" used the voices
of the show's real actors as part of the game's special effects.
Students author own texbooks
Engineering students in a senior design class at Clarkston Uni
versify are taking a non-traditional approach to education � instead
of referring to their textbook for answers, they are writing the text
themselves. Students are divided into groups of two or three and
assigned research projects. The projects pose a question about the
application of electronic components, such as operational amplifiers
and current-feedback amplifiers. The purpose is to answer the ques-
tion and develop an experiment to test a hypothesis. The project
Tesults are published in a single volume that is used for reference.
There are now five volumes containing 50 reports. The class is part of
the university's "Writing Across the Curriculum" program. The
program was introduced to improve the writing skills of students in
all disciplines.
Company offers rental cars to younger students
College students who are planning European trips this summer
will be able to rent cars through a travel services company that is
specifically making autos available to those under 21. Generally car
. rental companies won't rent to anyone younger than 21, which is the
: reason for the popularity of rail passes among younger folks. How-
j ever, The Kemwel Group has reached an agreement with Peugeot to
� provide cars to any 18-year-old with a valid driver's license. Accord-
ing to Kemwel, if four people share a car, costs are considerably less
than long-term train passes. For information and reservations call

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-
Herzegovina (AP) � Canadian
peacekeeping troops pointed their
weapons at nearby Bosnian Serb
forces Monday in a high-tension
standoff as negotiations began on
withdrawing Serb artillery from
the forbidden zone around
Sarajevo.
Cmdr. Simon McDowall, a
spokesman for the peacekeepers,
said heavy weapons were found
inside the 13-mile circle around
Sarajevo that is supposed to be
free of big guns. But the Serbs,
who use a different center when
measuring the exclusion zone, dis-
agreed that they were in violation.
McDowall said the Serbs
have positioned three tanks, three
anti-aircraft guns, four howitzers
and 18 mortars inside the exclu-
sion zone established by a U.N.
Security Council resolution.
The resolution authorized
NATO to launch air strikes on the
Serbs if they did not keep heavv
weapons out of the zone or put the
weapons under U.N. control. The
siege of Sarajevo mostly abated
after the Feb. 10 resolution and
yesterday's dispute was one of
the most uneasy confrontations
since then.
The violation, near Dijas north
of Sarajevo, led to a showdown
Sunday when about 200 Canadian
peacekeepers in armored vehicles
surrounded the Serb positions.
The peacekeepers pulled
back a few hundred yards after
Bosnian Serb leader Radovan
Karadzic reportedly threatened to
shoot or bomb Canadian positions.
They remained in position Mon-
day with their weapons trained on

the Serbs.
Lt. Gen. Sir Michael Rose, the
U.N. commander in Bosnia, or-
dered the Canadians to surround
the guns to force talks on their
removal. The talks between Serb
leaders and senior officers of the
U.N. Bosnian command began
Monday.
McDowall said other heavy
guns � six Serb howitzers � also
remained within the zone and sug-
gested the United Nations had
given up on trying to get them
removed.
"As far as Gen. Rose is con-
cerned, they don't have the range
to reach here he told reporters.
"As far as he is concerned they are
under our control
Two weekend shooting inci-
dents added to the tensions. A
Swedish peacekeeper was slightly
wounded Sunday by Serb gun-
fire near Mount Igman, south-
west of Sarajevo. Also Sunday,
French U.N. soldiers returned
Serb gunfire near Jablanica,
southwest of Sarajevo, said U.N.
officials. There were no injuries.
While tensions grew in
Sarajevo, life improved in the
long-suffering city of Maglaj
when the first aid convoy in five
months reached the city Sunday.
Convoys had been unable to
reach the 100,000 mostly Mus-
lim residents of the Maglaj area
because of heavy fighting in
Croat-held territory to the south.
But a cease-fire agreed to
by the Bosnian Croats and
Bosnia's Muslim-led govern-
ment allowed six trucks to.get to
Maglaj and three to nearby
Tesanj.

people and injured 11 others.
Parents tossed children from
windows and some tenants jumped
or were rescued from ledges by
firefighters on ladders as the fire
and smoke spread Sunday through
the four-story building on the city's
North side.
Julius S. Kuntu, 26, was

Police Cmdr. Ernest Hernandez said
Sunday night.
Hernandez said only that
Kuntu had confessed after several
hours of questioning after the mid-
day fire. Some residents of the 50-
unit building said Kuntu was angry
over a recent eviction notice.
Among those killed was a 4-
year-old boy and his 5-year-old
sister. Firefighter Jeff Heinz said he
found a 15-year-old girl alive in a

Clintons still trying
years of hard work
The members of the teams
offered to hold fund-raisers to send
themselves to the competition but
the athletic department said that
this would be a conflict of interest
with the Pirate Club. "We do not
let any of our teams (fund-raise)
Workman said. "We have a func-
tion set up to raise money for our
teams, so we know who is solicit-
ing money from the community
These funds are placed in the
athletic department's budget but
are used "primarily for scholar-
ships so they still do help with
funding for these competitions,
Workman said.
"Two years ago we had a
raffle and a cheerleading clinic for
young girls in the community that
went over very well Gary said.
"This year we wanted to sell post-
ers of the team. This would help
promote the dance team and the
basketball team, but we were told
no.
The cheerleading and dance
teams are allowed to hold one show
each year in order to pay for their
annual summer camp and equip-
ment, Workman said. This is more
fund-raising than any other team
is allowed to do.
The SGA also considered al-
locating some money for these
teams. The competition would cost
$15,000 for 27 athletes.
"We considered providing
half of the money, but the athletic
department would not go half-
way said SGA Vice-President
Troy Dreyfus.
"We had to come up with a
consistent decision Workman
said. "We try to fund everything as
best we can, but we have to make
choices. I would certainly like to
have seen these teams compete
This would have been the
first time the SGA has funded an
athletic team other than club
sports.
"We were concerned that
this would be setting a precedent,
and we would have to tell other
teams 'no' in the future Dreyfus
said.
The SGA passed a resolu-
tion stating that they support these
teams and their efforts to com-
pete.
"I think they deserve a
chance to represent ECU at the
national championships Dreyfus
said. "It would benefit the whole
school. No matter how they place,
it can only be positive �
The dance and cheerleading

ing:
�Small cracks and chipping
� cosmetic only � on state High-

stroyed a restaurant, a market and a

Gary Seidel said the cause was un-
der investigation, but there was a
"good possibility" it was directly
quake-related.
For many, though, Sunday's
aftershock � one of nearly 6,000
since Jan. 17�was little more than
an annoyance. At the Santa Anita
racetrack, bettors clung to their
places in line and spectators were
more focused on the racing than the
rumbling. And it was business as
usual for thousands of people en-
joying a sunny day.
Sunday's quake rocked Los
Angeles County as well as Orange,
Riverside, Ventura and Santa Bar-
bara counties. It lasted about 30 sec-
onds and was followed by a magni-
tude 3.4 aftershock at 3:30 p.m. and
a 2.7 tremblor at 8:03 p.m.
The 5.3 quake was the sev-
enth magnitude-5 or larger after-

were stronger, at magnitude 5.9 and
5.6, occurring the day of the quake,

ogy seismologist Kate Hutton.
There is a l-in-3 chance of at
least one more magnitude-5 or
greater aftershock before year'send,

BAL HARBOUR, Fla. (AP)
� President Clinton and his wife
Hillary hope to boost their falter-
ing health care campaign with a
week-long promotional splash
while shifting some attention from
the Whitewater affair.
They planned to begin work
Monday, hosting a health care fo-
rum for a senior citizen's commu-
nity in nearby Deerfield Beach.
The president has health care
events on his schedule every day
this week.
"The idea is to get our best
spokesmen out there, President
Clinton and Hillary, and explain
to people what our plan is all
about White House spokesman
Jeff Eller said aboard Air Force
One on Sunday.
The trip guarantees Clinton
media coverage in Florida, a state
he barely lost to George Bush in
1992 and wants to win over in
time for the 1996 campaign. It is
also a fitting site for a health care
forum: Nearly 20 percent of the
population is elderly, and state
officials are on the verge of imple-
menting some of the most revolu-
tionary health care reforms in the
country.
Although under fire, propos-
als by Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles
could create a real-world labora-
tory to test the theories under dis-
cussion at the White House and
Capitol Hill.
Clinton's plan commanded
broad public support after he pre-
sented it last fall and again after he
made it a centerpiece of his State
of the Union address. But support
has slumped in recent polls as
major business groups and the
American Medical Association
retreated from the fulcrum of
Clinton's health reforms � mak-
ing all employers pay for health
insurance.
In addition, White House
aides closely involved in the health
care campaign have been dis-
tracted by the Whitewater affair,
as a special counsel and congres-
sional committees probe the
Clintons' financial dealings in
Arkansas.
Polls suggest people are con-
fused about the White House plan,
although they approve of its cen-
tral tenet: coverage for all Ameri-
cans.
So far, the resolution has
been passed by the legislature. It
is now being sent to the mandates
which are the Board of Trustees,
Planning and Institutional Re-
search and the Faculty Senate.
"Our next step will depend
on the mandate's actions said
Brynn Thomas, speaker of the
SGA.
Expansion of the health cen-
ter was not included in ECU's
original remodeling project.
"The administration ap-
proves what buildings are going
to be remodeled Dyer said.
"They didn't foresee the impor-

ing. Housing will then be moved
from Whichard to the bottom of
J0nes. Amaro feels that students
should have easy access to hous-
ing services.
"It really is silly for stu-
dents to come from College Hill
to Whichard to get a room
change for someone from west
campus to come all the way
across campus to get a paint
permit Amaro said. "What we
want to do is be more customer-
oriented so we're taking the
central office and splitting it
Students will be able to get
keys when locked out or do any
other housing business from
these service desks, Amaro said.
Ajmost one hundred campus
jobs will be created with the
opening of Todd and the new
service desks.
� The return-housing
sweepstakes envelopes resi-
dents received claimed that
you're a winner if you live on
campus. Why?
"Let me count the ways
Salamon said.
"Do you have three
hours?" Amaro added.
"It's convenient, it's eco-
nomical, you're close to all the
activities and fun on campus,
you make a lot more friends in a
residence hall situation, you
meet roommates � peers that
are going through the same
stresses and situations that you
have Salamon said. "You de-
velop an extensive support net-
work amongst other students.
You are exposed to a tremen-
dous diversity of the campus by
meeting different students from
different backgrounds and dif-
ferent cultures. You broaden
your personal experiences that
can only benefit you in the work-
ing world
"We're here to provide a
service Amaro said. "We'll
take care of your housing and
dining needs and you should be
focusing on the academic needs
that you need to accomplish. We
don't want you to worry about
the sink that's leaking or 'What
am I going to cook tonight?' We
want to have that taken care of
for you so that you can concen-
trate on what you're here for: an
education
Amaro and Salamon feel
that recreational services, hous-
ing and dining all have an inti-
mate link in creating a neighbor-
hood for students. Nancy Mize,
director of Recrea tional Services,
beleives this is true also.
"Our feeling is that we're
all a community Mize said.
"Recreational services gives
something for the students to do
when they're not in class
Mize said that sand pits for
volleyball are being constructed
behind Jones to replace the ones
taken out by Todd Hall construc-
tion. She is also working with an
architect to plan more basketball
courts and greenspace on the hill.
"Housing, dining and rec-
reation those are the three most
important things when a student
comes to college Mize said.
Amaro stressed that there
is no housing and dining, that
most campus organizations work
together to create a vast commu-
nity for the students who live
here. The major events commit-
tee is one project Amaro and
Salamon are especially fond of.
Several committees from across
campus have joined to provide
funding for large campus events
such as Midnight Madness and
Mardi Gras. The committee as-
sembled two years ago and has
turned the events into annual
occurences.
"From my feelings, there
was question about whether stu-
dents would participate, particu-
larly on Halloween said Ron
Speier, dean of students. "Mid-
night Madness has been very suc-
cessful and Mardi Gras has been
a follow up � one has been built
on the other
Salamon said the whole rea-
son for the major events commit-
tee is to provide alcohol-free en-
tertainment on campus.
"We need to ask students
what they're interested in and
bring in those activities Amaro
said.
Amaro and Salamon said
that they are attuned to students'
needs. They are constantly tak-
ing surveys and listening to stu-
dent suggestions.
"We always look at our op-
erations on a consistent basis to
see if they need to be extended
either way depending on de-
mand we will expand Salamon
said.
That expansion is why stu-
dents returning to the same room
are given a larger time slot to
sign up than those who want to
change rooms or move to an-
other area of campus.
"The dates and priority
time slots are established by pre-
vious years activities Amaro
said.
Students registering to live
on campus next fall will be wait-
ing in line in Jones residence
hall all week. Amaro and
Salamon have tried to create
some entertainment for the long
lines they are expecting. While
waiting in line, students can
read the National Enquirer and
Sun articles posted on the paint-
splattered walls. The theme is a
chaotic one of painting and re-
construction. This is meant to
go along with the large renova-
tions that have been and will
continue to take place in the
coming years.
Refreshments will be
served all week. Students are
reminded to bring their hous-
ing contracts, personal informa-
tion form, priority ticket to be
entered into the sweepstakes
drawing and a $100 deposit.

Jones said he did not plan
to run in 1992, even when he
changed his party affiliation in
April 1992. He changed his mind
when he returned to his career as
a small business owner.
Jones deciined to attack his
opponent, but gave the reason
why he is running in the fall. "I
am not running against Mr.
Lancaster he said. "I am run-
ning for the seat he has the privi-
lege to occupy and serve.
"It is my belief, as a work-
ing man, a father and a husband,
that excessive taxation and
wasteful spending by the lead-
ership and the Democratically-
controlled Congress is taking this
nation down the wrong path.
"I feel that the Democrats
are out of touch with the work-
ing people of eastern North Caro-
lina. Too many times � and I'm
not talking about the individual,
tha t's the Congressman from the
Third District�they forget who
they serve
Jones said he would return
$30,000 of his salary because he
did not approve of the pay raise
Congress voted for itself in 1990.
He also criticized the Clinton
budget of 1994 for having too
many taxes and user fees. Rep.
Lancaster voted against the lat-
est Clinton budget.
Jones also explained why
he was running in the Third,
rather than the First District, con-
sidering he lives in Farmville,
which is in the First. He said he
wanted to serve his father's
former district, much of which
now lies in the Third District.
Jones also criticized the General
Assembly for re-drawing the
lines before the 1992 elections.
The legislature was charged with
creating two minority districts
in North Carolina by the U.S.
Justice Department.
"It splits too many coun-
ties Jones said. "It's very con-
fusing to the candidate, but more
importantly, it is unfair to the
voter
The plan is currently in the
courts, and many people believe
that the U.S. Supreme Court will
order the General Assembly to
re-draw the lines. In a similar
case in Louisiana, the Court or-
dered redistricting of one con-
gressional district.
Remembering a previous
trip to Greenville, during which
he was heckled as he announced
his candidacy, Jones urged the
College Republicans to remain
civil during the campaign. "Feel
strong about your party and your
candidate, but do not be rude
he said. "Republican or Demo-
crat, I don't think it serves any
continued from page 1
purpose to hoot anyone down
Jones said that he disagreed
with President Clinton's agenda,
especially the health care plan.
"I think it's absolutely wrong for
America. I don't think it has
much of a chance anyway
Even though his father
served 36 years in Congress, the
younger Jones said he supports
term limits. "Quite frankly, I
think my father stayed a few
years too long, but that was his
decision to run, and the people
elected him, so I guess I can't
really fault him Jones said he
would limit his service to four
terms or eight years in office.
Primary elections will be
held May 3. Jones is running un-
opposed in the Republican pri-
mary. He will meet Democrat
Martin Lancaster, who is also
running unopposed in his pri-
mary, in the general election

North Korea: "Bubble bubble toil and trouble"
North Korea is hardly my strongest din-
ner party topic, what with the history this
country has going back not only decades, but
centuries. But it has come to the point where
the opposition between "us" and "them" can
not be tolerated. What is evident now is that
North Korea is not ready to give in anytime
soon. And that scares a few politicians and
citizens alike.
North Korea refused last week to let in-
spectors take crucial radiation and plutonium
tests at two facilities. In response to that action,
the United States is seeking a U.N. resolution
this week telling North Korea to allow interna-
tional experts to finish inspecting its nuclear
plants or face trade sanctions.
Which, considering everything, is exactly
what they deserve if they are indeed hiding
something � their isolated and militant re-
gime may already have two atom bombs. And
despite a nuclear non-proliferation treaty, it
has refused to give international inspectors
full access, broken off talks with South Korea
over making their shared peninsula nuclear-
free and has been developing missiles that
could carry warheads to South Korea and Ja-
pan.
But it is possible that sanctions won't
work, with China as an ally, because leakage of
goods may occur, and since North Korea is
used to hard times, they could hold out for a
year or more without economic or social col-
lapse.
While the talk of economic sanctions oc-
curs, the Pentagon is hard at work doing what
they do best: planning war games so as to stand
tall against the proposed policy. They plan to up
the number of troops in South Korea and at-
tempt to convince that country to allow U.S.
Patriot missiles.
In other words, this situation has gotten
scary enough to ready the big guns and has
graduated on to be called serious business. They
have warned that such moves could provoke a
real war and coming from such an unpredict-
able government, this is truly a frightening threat.
Since the U.S. intelligence community believes
that there's at least one or two nuclear bombs, if
left unchecked, North Korea's stash could in-
crease to as many as 50 bombs by the year 2000.
But what gets me is that as soon as North
Korea started bucking against the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty, Japan jumps in an alludes
to the fact that it, too, may repeal its ban on
nuclear weapons.
What?! Japan, our supposed allies in the
world's leading nations suddenly runs over to
enemy territory screeching for asylum? This
harks back to World War II days of what teens in
the '50s called "rat-finks
But we must, if anything, applaud the di-
plomacy of Clinton. Thank God he did the un-
thinkable thing for a politican: Think first, act
later.

Crime policies should aim to deter criminals
Since the economy is fi-
nally improving, the polls
show that the American people
have decided that crime is now
our number one problem.
The news is filled each
night with more stories of
senseless violent crimes. So the
politicians have dutifully
climbed on the crime band-
wagon.
The problem is
that, to be just, the
punishment must
be proportional to
the severity of the
crime.
Unfortu-
n a t e 1 y ,
rather than
really do
something
about
crime, they
resort to
their usual
gimmicks,
such as gun
control and
the new "three strikes .and
you're out" bill.
This three-time loser bill
which President Clinton intro-
duced in his State of the Union
Address is another perfect ex-
ample of a politician introduc-
ing an idea which looks good
to gather p ublic support, rather
than using the methods which
have controlled crime in the
past. This measure in its cur-
rent form, rather than deter-
ring violent crime, will actu-
ally cause many more violent
crimes to escalate into mur-
der.
As an example of this,
suppose that the criminals who
were terrorizing our campus
last semester had already been
twice convicted of violent
crimes. Under the president's
proposal, if these felons were
caught for armed robbery
again, the penalty would be
life without parole.
However, if they killed
their victim, to make identify-
ing themselves more difficult,
the penalty would be life
without parole. So, in an at-
tempt to make our leaders ap-
pear tough on crime, more inno-
cent people would be killed.
Something close to this situa-
tion occurs every day. Since the
average murderer can expect to
spend 11 years in prison, and
the average armed robber about
four, why shouldn't a criminal
risk a few more years in prison
to make it harder for the au-
thorities to cap-
MMHMBH ture him?
This per-
verse incentive
to murder is
also present in
much of the
current atti-
tude of "get-
ting tough" on
crime. For ex-
mmKmwmim ample, many
feminist
groups want to see the penalty
for rape increased to as much as
20 years which would mean an
average prison term of about
eight years. If such ideas are
enacted, what is going to pre-
vent rapists from killing their
victims after they rape them, if
the penalty is only three years
more in prison?
The problem is that, to be
just, the punishment must be
proportional to the severity of
the crime. Murder, as the worst
crime, must receive the stiffest
sentence. Whatever this sen-
tence is, it sets the baseline for
all others. When the penalty for
murder was lowered from dea th
to 25 years to life, the penalty
for every other crime had to be
proportionally lowered.
Therefore, the only solution
if we really want to get tough, is
to return to the successful poli-
cies of the past. Only when the
penalty for first degree murder
is once again death, and sen-
tence is swiftly and surely car-
ried out, can we hope to get a
handle on other crimes.
For those who believe that
capital punishment will not de-
I
ter crime, consider this: From
1930 to 1950, all murders, in-
cluding so-called crimes of pas-
sion, ranged from 5,000 to 7,000
per year. Executions ranged
from 117 to 199 annually. So a
murder faced odds of 1 in 25
that he would be executed. Now
the odds have changed to 1 in
625, and our annual murder rate
is 24,000.
Not only were murderers
more likely to die for their deeds,
such a sentence was carried out
much more swiftly. For ex-
ample, in 1933 an anarchist at-
tempted to kill President-Elect
Roosevelt on Feb 15, and killed
Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak
instead. When FDR was
innaugurated five weeks later,
the annarchist had been tried,
convicted, and executed al-
ready.
While such policies did not
prevent all murders, they obvi-
ously prevented some. This can
be seen in the stories of retired
police officers, who state that
when robbers were arrested
with guns, frequently the guns
were unloaded or intentionally
disabled, to prevent any acci-
dental murders. Today, many
robbers kill their victims for no
apparent reason, even after the
victim has handed over their
goods.
I am not longing for any
"good old days" when justice
was executed summarily, or for
returning to the days of capital
punishment for simple thievery.
1 most definitely do not want to
return to the days when police
could stop and search people
for no reason. What I do want is
to return to the days when in
most places it was safe to walk
the streets at night.
The only way to make this
possible is to enact policies
which will actually deter crimi-
nals from committing violent
crime, for fear of the punish-
ment which will befall them.

Courts appear to condone unethical behavior
About 10 years ago, CBS
watched its ratings skyrocket as it
aired the TV movie "The Burning
Bed in which Farrah Fawcet por-
trayed a woman who was left with
no recourse against her drunken,
abusive husband except to set fire to
her house, consequently cremating
her sleeping husband in their own
bed.
A few years later, just about
every American male vowed to never
again have an extramarital affair af-
ter seeing the chaotic and psycho-
pathic tragedies that resulted in Fatal
Attraction.
Now,inthe 1990s, these actsof
vengeance by women who feel they
must literally take matters into their
own hands have become recurring
facts for the defense in our court-
rooms, and cries of warning to all
men who aren't already walking in
eggshells witheverything they do or
say.
Gentlemen, if there was ever a
time to jump off the couch and mow
the lawn or trim the hedges when
asked, don't do it for the exercise or
the satisfaction of a nice yard, do it to
protect your desire to continue liv-
ing as a normal, healthy male.
With no pun intended, allow
me to cut to the quick. This weekend
I was flipping tluough the channels
when 1 caught the tail end of a report
about a young woman who was
acquitted on charges of maiming and
mutilating her husband by cutting
off his testicles withapairofscissors.
You can bet this woman was thank-
ing God for the Bobbitt case that was
surely cited as a similar decision for
her defense as she walked out of the
courtroom alone and free.
Furthermore,Icanjusthearall
those women activists touting how
this is a ground-breaking, positive
outcome in furthering the cause of
their movement and how finally,
perhaps the domineering man of
this society will begin to take the
struggling, passive woman more se-
riously.
Ironically, what seems to be
catapulting this ideology into the
forefront of a feminist movement of
fairness are not perhaps the vigilante
acts themselves,butinstead, the judg-
ments of our own legal system in
what constitutes right and wrong
and justice and mercy.
It appears that the two recent
acquittals of Lorena Bobbitt and
"Edwina Scissorhands" were not
based on the fact of whether or not
the bestial cuttings and slashings
were committed, but rather, if the
defense for the women could prove
their v ictims deserved the treatment.
Consequently,aftertheme-
dia waters down the many argu-
ments and incidents leadingup to
such crimes of passion, the public,
receivesasimplificationofthepro
cess from a court system that has
turned into a forum of "he-said,
she-said" politics, eventually ap-
pearing to condone the unethical
behavior of these women, again, i
so long as it was fair and deserv- �
ing to the victim.
This is certainly no indicd
tion of a stronger, more deter
mined woman of the 90s, but un-
fortunately terrifyingsignal that
even if a woman has lost faith in;
the legal system and is not strong-
enough to pursue and adhere to
the normal course of action, in the
end, her ultimate desperate acts
of vengeance are forgiven and she
believes foolishly that justice is
served.
In our society, if a man were
to physically maim a woman in
any way, whether she is deserv-
ing or not, he would likely be sent
to prison for the remainder of his
life. And rightly so. Yet it is quite
unnerving to witness this same
society condoning and forgiving
these same barbaric acts, while
consoling and canonizing the
women who commit them.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am writing in regards to Mr. Demetrius Carter's
letter discussing the recent campus improvements and
lack thereof for the African-American cultural center.
First, I v M like to say that I concur with Mr. Carter's
opinion that the new dining hall and recreation center
are unnecessary and a waste of our money. However,
concerning the Afro-American cultural center, I feel it
should be bulldozed to make way for parking.
Before I get tons of mail accusing me of racism, let
meexplain, I AM NOT A RACIST, unless you accuse my
(sic) of being particularly fond of the human race, but
that's another discussion. Mr. Carter is president of
Allied Blacks for Leadership and Equality. I'm sure I
don't have to point out but the name alone of this
organization is racially biased. It implies an alliance of
Blacks. Let me ask you, if there was an Alliance of
Whites, would it be considered racist? Moreover as a
White person could I join this organization? I truly don't
know, that is a question for Mr. Demetrius.
The alliance also has a purpose, leadership and
equality. I have nothing against the leadership part but
quite frankly to put equality in that description is a joke.
We have an African-American cultural center. Approxi-
mately 9.0 of ECU is African-American compared to
87.9 Caucasian as 1992. Do we have a Caucasian-
American cultural center? I think not. This is not equal-
ity, its not even majority rule, it represents a tiny percent-
age of the population (of ECU that is) controlling and
using the entire populations' money and resources as
it pleases.
How does this phenomenon happen?Guilt. Flat
out, we Whites enslaved Black people's forefathers so
to make up for that we help fund African-American
cultural centers, United Negro college funds, and
"equal opportunity employment, none of which
represents equality. All three of these are examples of
reverse-racism. I hesitate to use the term "reverse-
racism" since it implies the more common racism or
prejudice is that of Whites against Blacks.
So should we try to keep up with UNC Chapel
Hill and NC State in this farce or should we try to set
a precedent and discover trueequality on this campus.
I feel that Blacks are just as intelligent and capable as
any other race, so why should they receive special
attention? They don't need it, the same way an over-
weight person doesn't need more fattening food. 1
wrote this letter out of respect for the human race, and
it is out of self respect that Black people should tear
down the African-American cultural center.

To the Editor:
I would like to add and respond to Mr. Carter's
letter of 3-17.1 disagree with Mr. Carter concerning his
alternative method to distribute the funds while the
expansion of MingesFicken, new diningrecreation
facilities or something like more parking may not be
mandatory improvements, they are things thatarguably
all of us have an interest in. Those would be things that
meet the needs of everyone on campus and not just a
select group.
If everyone pays money totheUniversity,shouldn't
the University's projects focus on things that everyone
has an interest in? Is an African-American cultural center
something everyone needs or would use? Is it right to
have and (sic) AA cultural center without having an
Asian, White, or Native American cultural center as
wellI ha ve never seen even a fraction of the people Lned
up outside the AA cultural center tliat I would normally
see at Minges or any of the dining centers.
I do think that money contributed by evervone to
the University should be used to benefit everyone and
never should be used to extol a select group. More-
over, it is an incredible piece of twisted logic for a
member of a select group to say something like, "Oh,
butbyhonoringexaltingworshiping(sic)celebrat-
ingwhatever etcmyselectgroupyouarebenefitting
(sic) everyone Besides the obvious logical contradic-
tions that ensue from such a statement, there is com-
mon sense that tells us it is wrong. There is also a
smaller number of people that see the real significance
of honoring a select group of people at the expense of
the (sic) everyoneelse. When you honor a group in this
way you over step the bounds of equality by just a tad
(like a few zillion miles).
This thing is that I am not a racist your race,
sex, or religion scores no points with me. I measure the
valueofpeopleonlythroughability.Showmeyoucan
think and do for yourself. That demonstrates your
worth.

By Sarah Wahlert
Staff Writer
On Saturday, March 25, at the
Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Va
the public will have it's first oppor-
tunity to experience "Living With
AIDS: A Photographic Journal" by
Sal Lopes. The photos offer a grip-
ping, sensitive look at the lives of
individuals with AIDS. Theexhibi-
tion is a visual account of the resil-
iency of people: thoseinfected with

Greedy suffers from dull script
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
For any movie patron, this
time of year brings only frustra-
tion when trying to pick a film to
watch. Most studios have already
released their big holiday films
and any films with promise are
being stashed until summer.
One of Universal's films is
Greedy, starring Michael J. Fox
and Kirk Douglas. Though not
terrible, Greedy does suffer from
a genuinely dull script. The story
plods along with no real direc-
tion leaving many talented stars
floundering for a decent line to
grab.
Like Michael J. Fox's last two
films, Life with Mikey and For Love
or Money, Greedy allows Fox to be
a likeable character stuck in a
mostly unlikable film. In Greedy
,Fox plays Danny McTeague, a
nephew of Uncle Joe (Kirk Dc i-
glas).
After his retirement from pro
bowling, Danny is coerced into
visiting his Uncle Joe by his
greedy relatives who want to keep
him happy so that they can in-
herit his wealth when he dies
(which they all hope will be soon
since none of them like Joe).
Danny wins Uncle Joe's af-
fection but then Danny finds him-
self becoming greedy also. The
story plays upon Danny's greedi-
ness, and ultimate good will, but
misses many opportunities to
score big laughs.
The relatives include Phil
Hartman, who is quite funny, and
Ed Begley, Jr who is not. The
only other cast member worth
noting is Nancy Travis, who plays
Danny's girlfriend. Travis infuses
her role with a genuine good spirit
thus making her moments on
screen some of the best in the
film.
The opening scenes in Greedy
are rather amusing. One particu-
larly riotous scene occurs during
a Saturday lunch at Uncle Joe's

Classic Language expands
By Bridget Hemenway
Staff Writer
Among the many changes at
ECU, one that deserves attention
is the expansion of the classic lan-
guage department. In previous
years, Latin was taught by French
and Spanish professors in the For-
eign Languages Department. To-
day however, with the help of Dr.
Keats Sparrow, dean of the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences, students
are able to minor in the classic
languages.
During the Spring ofl992
Dean Sparrow formed a Classical
Studies Committee and made Pro-
fessor Anthony J. Papalas, a Uni-
versity of Chicago Ph.D. and an
ancient historian in the History
Department, chair of the commit-
tee.
In the fall of 1992, Dr. Steve
Cerutti was hired to coordinate
classical languages. Immediately
after joining the department, Pro-
fessor Papalas and Dr. Cerutti
formed a minor in classical stud-
ies.
The minor added many new
courses to the curriculum and
called for the reorganization of
the Latin curriculum and the in-
troduction of ancient Greek.
In its first year, the course in
ancient Greek reached its capacity
of 25 students and left seven on
the waiting list. This confirmed
Sparrow's belief that ECU stu-
dents have a strong interest in the
classics. "In addition to those who
want to concentrate their academic
study in the classics, many pre-
med and pre-theology students
take ancient Greek to give them
the language background needed
for their professional studies
Cerutti explained.
"While Dean Sparrow ini-
tially wanted to establish a
minor in classical stud-
ies, the students response
was so enthusiastic that
he asked the classical
studies committee to
draw up a proposal to
establish a new degree
program in classical
studies said Papalas.
"This proposal has
passed all university
committees and will
soon be considered by
the UNC General Admin-
istration he added. The
new degree program
will have a multi-
cultural emphasis
with a strong
foundation in the an-
cient languages and lit-
eratures as well as in the ar-
chaeology and social institutions
of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
The quality of the program,
within its teaching and research
interests of its faculty, is proven in
that fact that ECU's classics pro-
gram already rank second among
thel6 institutions of the UNC sys-
tem.
"Thanks to Dean Sparrow's
vision and commitment, the clas-
sics are alive and well at ECU, and
the vigorous classics program also
means ECU is academically alive
and well. It's onward and upward
for the program and the univer-
sity Cerutti said.
The most re-
cent development
brought by classi-
cal studies to
ECU is the pro-
duction of a clas-
sical play by the
Aquila Com-
pany. The Brit-
ish theatrical
group will visit
the university
in April to put on
production of
Aristophanes'
"Wasps
Aristophanes was a
fifth century Greek
playwright whose
plays are sexy com-
edies that satirize the soci-
ety of fifth century Athens.
The Aquila Company
will also feature a workshop that
will focus on the problems and
challenges of staging ancient com-
edy. The workshop will be held
the afternoon of April 8 so stu-
dents can learn the details of the
production before they watch it.
Ihe play will be held in Hendrix
Theatre on Monday, April 8 at
8:00 p.m.

Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral
m m ��
Trent Reznor is an exhibitionist.
His one-man industrial band, Nine
Inch Nails, has become popular
enough in the last five years that now
he can flaunt himself to the world.
Whatever obsessions or sick fanta-
sies he'sdealing with, Reznor sounds
like he's on the edge of a psychotic fit
at all times. It'sabithkeafreakshow.
Perhaps that explains his popularity,
which should continue with the re-
lease of the latest offering, TlieDown-
wnrdSpiral. It's a piece of hate-mail to

a barbed-wire bite and a danceable
expression of very personal anger. In
other words, it's Trent Reznor expos-

The first button of the flasher's
overcoat comes undone with what
could very well be considered
Reznor's theme song, "Mr. Self De-
struct This one exposes all of his
obsessions at once, a quick flash for
the rubes. That's right, there's sex,
religion, addiction, and suicide rat-
tling around in this song. It all fits
together in a driving, unstop- pable
pattern of personal decay, a "down-
ward spiral
The Doumuwd Spiral starts off
with a fever pitch of rage that gradu-
ally slows until we arrive at grinding
exhaustion by the album's end. The
music also starts off wildly, building
a slow drumbeat into an explosion of

Dieting: Is it really necessary?
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) � Men
who say they are always dieting
had dramatically higher rates of
heart disease and diabetes than
men who say they never diet, a
new study showed.
The results appear to raise
questions about research that has
established obesity as a risk for
heart disease, said the study's au-
thor, Steven N. Blair, an epidemi-
ologist at the Cooper Institute for
Aerobics Research in Dallas.
"It's a paradox Blair said.
Researchers know that gaining
weight raises the risks of disease.
But it's not clear whether losing
weight lowers the risks again, he
said.
"One of the fundamental te-
nets of the weight loss industry is
if you get people to eat less, they'll
lose weight. And if they lose
weight, they'll be better off. And
there is no evidence to support
either one of those Blair said.
He discussed his findings
Saturday at the American Heart
Association's annual epidemiol-
ogy meeting.
The study also found that
men who keep their weight
steady, even if they are over-
weight, have less risk of disease
than men whose weight fluctu-
ates by as little as 10 pounds.
Earlier studies have also sug-
gested that losing and regaining
weight, or "yo-yo dieting is as-
sociated with higher health risks
than keeping weight steady.
"In general, weigl cycling
has been hard to figure o it said
Dr. Stephen P. Fortmann, a pro-
fessor of medicine at Stanford
University and one of the orga-
nizers of the heart association
meeting. "It is another reason not
to diet
The best way to control
weight is through exercise, not
dieting, Fortmann said. Blair sug-
gested a low-fat diet with a lot of
fresh fruits and vegetables. He
advised people to avoid gaining
weight in the first place.
The study was based on a
survey of 12,025 Harvard Uni-
versity graduates with an aver-
age age of 67. The question Blair
asked them was: "How often are
you dieting (eating less than you
East Carolina Playhouse
presents
Brian Fricl's Tony Award Winning Play
would like)?"
Those whosaid "always" had
a heart disease rate of 23.1 per-
cent, more than double the 10.6
rate of those who answered
"never
The men who always dieted
had a 38.3 percent rate of hyper-
tension and 14.6 percent rate of
diabetes, compared with a 23.4
percent rate of hypertension and 3
percent rate of diabetes for those
who said they never dieted.
Among those men who d ieted
part of the time, the study found
that the more they dieted, the
higher their rates of disease. Men
who dieted "often" had higher
disease rates than those who di-
eted "sometimes That group, in
turn, had higher rates than those
who dieted "rarely
Even among the leanest mem-
bers of the group, those who di-
eted more had higher rates of dis-
ease than those who dieted less,
he said.
Blair also asked them to indi-
cate their body shape at various
ages, giving him an indication of
their weight variation. Those
whose weight varied had higher
risks than those whose weight was
steady, he found.
Record company records rare music
Small group works for a big sound.
NEW YORK (AP) � The
name sounds like a Latin Ameri-
can dance instructor, but Varese
Sarabande, a small California-
based record company, has
stepped in where most major la-
bels fear to tread � recording
rare theater music.
The company can't compete
with the big-money giants such
as RCA Victor, Sony and EMI-
Angel, in terms of bidding for
major Broadway shows like
"Tommy "Guys and Dolls" and
"Crazy for You
So it has found its own niche
by doing something different.
Varese Sarabande has won the
allegiance of Broadway buffs with
its new Spotlight Series, an in-
triguing and still-growing cata-
log that features collections of ob-
scure show tunes, smaller origi-
nal cast albums and Broadway
performers singing the songs of
one particular composer or lyri-
cist.
The off-beat series is under
the guidance of Bruce Kimmel, a
one-time actor, director and film-
maker, who came to Varese
Sarabande last year to guide its
theater projects.
The company was founded
in 1978 to record movie

soundtracks, which still form its
core of releases. It's the success of
soundtracks like Ghost that en-
abled Varese Sarabande to move
into other areas.
"I wanted to do original re-
cordings of rare thea ter stuff, some
of which has been done before,
but usually with only a pianist
and a vocalist Kimmel said. "I
thought they should be done as if
they were full cast recordings of a
big Broadway show
To keep costs down, his per-
formers � top-notch Broadway
people who may not be house-
hold names but are known by
show buffs � work for less than
exorbitant salaries.
His first project was Unsung
Sondheim, the unknown work of
Stephen Sondheim, Broadway's
reigning genius and the man who
wrote the scores for such shows as
"Company "A Little Night Mu-
sic "Sweeney Todd "Follies
"Sunday in the Park with George"
and others.
Not much of Sondheim has
been left unrecorded, but Kimmel
managed to come up with some
unknown material, leftover songs
from more than a half-dozen
shows.
"Sondheim was very gracious
in opening his archives, and he
wanted to call the album Dregs,
Kimmel laughed. "But his dregs
are like other people's gold. Some
of it is really extraordinary, I
think
It was material from two un-
successful and unrecorded shows
� "La Strada" and "Smile" �
that sparked Kimmel's interest in
doing what eventually became
Unsung Broadway.
"La Strada" is represented by
one of Kimmel's favorite songs,
"Starfish" which has music by
Elliot Lawrence and lyrics by Mar-
tin Charnin, while "Smile a
Marvin Hamlisch musical based
on the beauty pageant movie,
gets three n umbers. Other shows
represented on the recording, a
treasure-trove of lost delights, in-
clude such bombs as "Welcome
to the Club "Sherry "The
Vamp "The First" and "Drat!
The Cat
"I went through a lot of
shows and a lot of material on
this album is ijecessarily 100 pe -
cent first-rate Kimmel admit-
ted. "I just felt it was a good
listening experience
Nex t on Kimmers agenda is
a project called Lost in Boston, a
collection of songs cut out-of-
town from shows tha t went on to
become Broadway hits.
There was so much material
that two volumes will be re-
corded in April, with the first
coming out in June and the sec-
ond in October. Among the
shows represented with cut
songs are "The King and I
"Annie Get Your Gun "110 in
the Shade" and "I Do! I Do
And there could be even more
volumes, Kimmel predicts.
Yet the Spotlight Series isn't
just little-known songs. It also
provides a showcase for Broad-
way performers little known by
the general public. Thirty or 40
years ago, musical comedy dis-
coveries would get a recording
contract and an album or two.
New stars like Judy Holliday,
Tammy Grimes and Kaye Ballard
all made records. Now Varese
Sarabande plans the same type
of opportunity for today's ster-
ling musical performers like Liz
Callaway, Debbie Shapiro

where the various relatives take
turns demeaning each other in
front of Joe.
Muriel and Glenn are sepa-
rating though thev try to hide it
since Uncle Joe admires strong
marriages. Tina was drunk and
and had a hit-and-run accident
with a school bus. Ed is losing his
job and he, too, tries to hide the
fact because Uncle Joe admires a
man able to keep steady work. All
of these revelations come out dur-
ing one meal. The viewer is left to
wonder what other meals are like
with this family.
The tone in Greedy presents
the largest obstacle to enjoying the
film, for it becomes confused about
GARDENA
halfway through the picture. Uncle
Joe'sduplicity never gets conveyed
the way it should, and Danny's
greediness seems out of character.
Perhaps if the film had made clear
that Joe was completely in control
of every situation or if Danny's
feelings seemed more consistent,
then the story may have worked.
Jonathan Lynn, who did such
a marvelous job with My Cousin
Vinny, seems to be as confused as
the script about what type of di-
rection to take. Because of this con-
fusion the film becomes a likable
mess with interesting but incon-
sistent characters.
On a scale of one of ten, Greedy
rates a four.

The title track is one of the
stronger tunes with some good
guitar soloing, but not enough to
keep your interest for the entire

1993-94 see
saw season
By Brad Oldham
Senior Staff Writer
After the dust has cleared on
the 1993-1994 ECU basketball
season, it can honestly be said
that this was a year of many ups
and downs for head coach Eddie
Payne.
It was an exciting season to
watch for the Pirates, who after
winning the CAA tournament
the year before, were on cloud
nine prior to the onstart o the
opening game. And how can you
blame them? This was a team
that had played the eventual
NCAA champs UNC Tarheels,
and really put up a decent fight.
Okay, so they lost by 20, but they
only trailed by 10 at the half, and
Billy Packer said they played
defensive against the Heels as
good as any team in the tourna-
ment.
All this hype might have
been a bit too much, too soon for
ECU. Remember, this was a team
that had not had a winning sea-
son in over a decade. Even when
they won the CAA tournament
they still hadalosingrecord. And
here people were throwing great
expectations even Dickens
couldn't match. But you had to
feel good for Coach Payne and
his Pirates. They led ECU to a
post-season tournament for the
first time since 1972. When the
football team let us down in the
fall of 1992, our basketball team
picked up the slack in the winter.
So how did ECU respond to
all these dog-gone expectations?
Well, first the good. With a 15-11
overall record, and 7-7 in the
CAA, it was the most overall wins
since 1982-83, and the most con-
ference wins ever in a season.
Their five-game win streak in the
beginning of the season was the
longest in four years, and they
had the best 12-game start since
1957-58. And hey, people finally
realized that ECU has a basket-
ball team. Seriously, Minges Coli-
seum was notjusttheplace where
you took PE 1000 anymore, it
was the home of maniacs.
Minges averaged 4,820 fans
per game, and sold out two games
against UNC-Wilmington and
Old Dominion. Five crowds
made the top 15 in Minges his-
tory. This was a place where a
tradition of basketball was be-
ginning. ECU won lOof 12 games
at Minges, and the two losses
against JMU and ODU were by
just two and three points respec-
tively.
The road, however, was not
kind to the Pirates. Willie Nelson
singing "On the Road Again"
would have sent chills up the
spine of any Pirate fan this sea-
son. In 15 games away from
Minges this season, ECU was an
abysmal 5-10. Losses against
teams like Mount St. Mary's,
William & Mary, and Furman,
who ECU had beaten 92-61 at
Minges just a month and a half
earlier, were just plain inexcus-
able. The road was the difference
this year for ECU. You just can't
play that inconsistent away from
your home-court and wind up in
the top of your conference.
Another weakness this sea-
son for ECU was the inability to
maintain leads until the final
buzzer. Double-digit leads in the
second half against teams like
Richmond, Old Dominion, and
James Madison all slipped away
to defeat. These were teams that
they were capable of beating in
each occasion. Possibly players
were tired or what, but forced
shots and numerous mental mis-
takes killed the Pirates in the
crunch time of many ball games.
The Pirates played best as a
team this season, but there were
some stand-out performances.
Senior Lester Lyons, who was
predicted to be the C AA's Player
of the Year coming into this sea-
son, was put in a situation he was
a bit unfamiliar with: He actually

Fleet sent flying
By Brad Oldham
Senior Staff Writer
East Carolina finished a three-
game sweep over the Flying Fleet
of Erskine College on Saturday, 4-
1. The win came at the home con-
fines of Harrington field, where
the Pirates ha. d won 15 of their
last 16 games.
Senior Mike Sanburn got the
win for the Pirates, pitching his
type of ball-game. Nothing too
fancy, just good solid pitching
from the first inning to the ninth.
Sanburn struck out three bat-
ters and walked just one . He al-
lowed five hits and noeamed runs
in going the distance for ECU.
"In the top of the seventh, we
committed two errors, and I got a
little worried that I was coming
out. I really wanted to stay in and
finish the ball game. My arm feels
fine, and we got a big week ahead,
so we just need to keep the streak
alive Sanburn said.
East Carolina got on the board
in the third inning. A lead-off
single by senior shortstop Frank
Fedak got ECU rolling. Center-
fielder Jamie Borel dropped a
single between the second
baseman and right-fielder, put-
ting men on first and second with
no outs. Left-fielder Jason Head
laid down a sacrifice bunt mov-
ing Fedak to third. Senior third
baseman Rick Britton hit a sacri-
fice fly to score Fedak and make
the score 1-0.
Sanburn remained strong and
consistent throughout the ball-
game. He had a two-hitter through
the fourth inning when, with two
outs, Erskine's Scott Woodhouse
poked an infield single to put men
on first and third. Sanburn worked
his way out of the situation
though, forcing catcher Dan
Massarelli to pop-out to right field
to end the inning.
ECUcatcherChad Triplettled
off the bottom of the fourth in-
ning by hitting a ground ball to
short. An overthrow by Erskine
shortstop Herb Sargent allowed
Triplett to advance to second.
The true meaning of hustle
was exemplified in the next play
for ECU. Pirate second baseman
Heath Clark hit a slow roller to
second base. Foreseeing a close

(SID) � Play in the Hampton

came to an end on Sunday. The
tournament weekend closed out
with the championship game be-
tween host team East Carolina and
Coastal Carolina. East Carolina de-
feated Coastal Carolina in the cham-
pionship game, 2-1.
Both ECU and Coastal were the
top teams in their respective pools
and were undefeated in the tourna-
ment entering the championship
game. ECU came to the final game
with a season record of 23-9 and
Coastal'sonlylossoftheseasonwas
to ECU on March 8 (2-1).
ThegamebeganwithEastCaro-
lina putting Coastal out three-up,
three-down. On the Lady Pirates'
first time up to bat, they couldn't
convert. There were two strikeouts
and one walk. Coastal's next time
up to bat, thirdbaseman Sara
Graziano smacked a triple to lead
off the inning, but the Chanticleers
couldn't make anything happen.
, The game remained scoreless
until the third inning when Coastal
scored one run. Leftfielder Cindy
Ritter hit a triple, scoring Jill
Friedman. That was the only run
Coastal would score in the game.
ECU's inning came in the fifth
when it scored its only two runs of
the game. Senior Georgeann Wilke
started off the inning with a triple to
left center field which would be the
Lady Pirates' only hit of the game.

Hide puts end to Bentt
(AP) � East Carolina's foot-
ball squad began spring drills on
Saturday, working out twice dur-
ing the day.
During the morning work-
out, the Pirates were in helmet
and shoulder pads only, work-
ing on special teams and indi-
vidual fundamentals. The squad
donned full gear in the afternoon
workout, concentrating on tack-
ling. A short goal line scrimmage
was planned for the afternoon
scrimmage.
ECU coach Steve Logan
thinks that spring practice will
be important for the develop-
ment of his squad.
"We have got to accomplish
several things this spring with
this football team said Logan.
"We have to maintain the defen-
sive intensity, especially with our
front seven, we have to improve
our defensive secondary play,
our special teams play and hope
our receiving corps can im-
prove
Logan also indicated that
sophomore quarterback Marcus
Crandell will see most of the snaps
behind center in the spring.
Crandell, of Robersonville, N.C
broke his leg in the second game
of 1993 against Central Florida
and hasn't taken a live snap since.
Crandell has regained most of his
strength and speed since the in-
jury, but has not taken any hits on
the leg.
About 80 student-athletes are
expected to be participating jn
spring drills this year. Two of those-
Michael Jacobs and Dwight Henry-
will be participating inothersports
during the spring. Jacobs, a deep
snapper on special teams, will be
playing with the baseball squad
and Henry, a defensive back, will
be on the track team.
The Pirates are allowed by
NCAA rules, to havel5 practice
sessions during spring drills. The
final workout will be the annual
spring game on April 16, which is
part of the 11th Annual Great Pi-
rate Purple Gold Pigskin Pig-Out

Pirates rip
Erskine
12-1,4-1
By Steven lienert
Staff Writer
The East Carolina baseball
team completed a double-
header sweep of the Flying Fleet
of Erskine College (S.C.) 12-1
and 4-1 at Harrington Field last
Friday. The wins, coupled with
Saturday's, pushed the Pirate
winning streak to six straight
games, and East Carolina has
won 20 of their last 21 games.
Game one's pitching duel
pitted Pirate Billy Layton
against Flying Fleet star Chad
Evans. Layton came out strik-
ing out three of the first five
batters he faced, while Evans
was rocked early and often by
the Pirates. East Carolina bat-
ted around in the first inning,
scoring three runs, and the
game never seemed competi-
tive after that.
All of the Pirates seemed to
have a good first game at the
plate. East Carolina
centertieider and CAA player
of the week Jamie Borel ignited
the Pirates again, going 2-for-2
with two RBIs, three runs scored
and two stolen bases. Third
baseman Rick Britton also
shined, going 3 for 4 with 4
RBI's and 2 runs scored. First
baseman Brian Yerys and des-
ignated hitter Scott
Bermingham combined for four
hits, two RBIs and three runs
scored as the Pirates routed the
Flying Fleet, 12-1.
Layton had great control
throughout the game, giving up
only four hits to Erskine, while
striking out four and walking
only one in the win.
Game two saw Erskine leap
out to an early 1-0 lead, as Pi-
rate starter Ryan Kraft gave up
a triple to Flying Fleet lead-off
man Rodney Rains. But Kraft
settled down after that, scatter-
ing only four more hits over the
rest of the complete game vic-
tory.
Even tnough the Pirate bats
seemed to fall asleep in Game
two, they were still able to pull
out the win. East Carolina capi-
talized on mistakes by Erskine
pitchers. Flying Fleet starter
Darrell Bagwell walked five Pi-
rate batters that led to three
runs, including a bases loaded
walk to East Carolina
rightfielder Kyle Billingsley.
The Pirates scored once in
the second inning to tie the
game, and then exploded for
three runs in the third to secure
the win. Pirate catcher Qad
Triplett went l-for-2 with 3 RBIs
to propel East Carolina.
March madness lives up to expectations
(AP) � A poet once called
April the cruelest month, but then
he never coached a fa vorite in the
NCAA tournament. Otherwise,
he would have gone with March.
Definitely March.
The same month thatbrought
Julius Caesar bad news centuries
ago rolled around Sunday with
more of the same for Dean Smith,
RickPitinoand Eddie Sutton. The
good news is that they only lost
basketball games.
"This is not going to ruin the
season we had Pitino said.
The Kentucky coach was fac-
ing the glare of TV lights on a
podium in St. Petersburg when
he said this. But except for a few
details, a few years, and a few
minutes either way, he could
have been Smith sitting on a po-
dium in Landover, Md or Sutton
in Wichita, Kan.
Pitino had just lost 75-63 to
Marquette. But it could have been
75-72 to Boston College, as Smith
and North Carolina (and Lou
Holtz and Notre Dame before
them) had. Or 82-80 to Tulsa,
which was Sutton's fate.
Pitino lost because of the
Warriors' cloying, annoying de-
fense. But it could have been
late free throws, as in Smith's
case. Or a last-second 3-pointer,
which was what sunk Sutton
and Oklahoma State.
In each case, though, the
point was the same:
A loss. A ruined season.

Jordan receives shaft from big leagues, sent down to minors
(AD � Mic had Jordan was re-
assigned to the Chicago White So
minor league camp and expected to
start in right field for Class A Prince
William yesterday.
However, Jordan was not as-
signed to the Class A team; he will
work out with the Double A Bir-
mingham team. White Sox general
manager Ron Schueler said fordan
could play for Triple A Nashville on
Wednesday, and may switch each
day.
'Its wherever we can get him in
games, where we can get him the
most at-hats said Schueler, who
hoped to determine where Jordan
should be placed after at least one
week of minor league games.
The 31-year-old Jordan, the
three-time NBA MVP, was 3-for-20
in 13 spring games with four walks,
two RBI and a sacrifice fly. Onlv one
ot the hits was out of the infield; the
other two were infield singles
knocked down by third basemen.
"I need the playing time Jor-
dan said before running out to join
the team in its morning workout.
"It's a whole different experi-
ence but that's what life is about he
said. "I'mnotreallvnervousasmuch

Protecting Jordan also was one
of the main reasons he would play
most of his minor league games at
the White Sox's complex.
Jordan said he would continue
his early morning hitting sessions
with coach Walt Hriniak. The de-
motion did nothing to dampen
Jordan's spirits. "I've always trulv

ECU head coach Gary Overton
said. "We did not run the bases
well at times. The credit has to go
to Mike Sanbum. He pitched ex-
ceptionally well. It was really his
type of ball game. We were very
pleased with his performance, and
we didn't play all that good of
defense behind him at times, but
he did what was necessary to win
the game
"Up to this point in the season,
we've done a fine job of producing
wins. At times, we are playing well,
and at other times, we are doing
just enough to get by, like today

makes this tournament THE tour-
nament. Fi Carolina plays Boston
College ti tree times every season,
Smith wins at least two of them
every time, and all three most of
the time. He's won two national
titles and more than 800 games
that way.
But this is March, the time of
year when people's memories get
very short. And what better time
to stage the ultimate what-have-
you-done-for-me-lately event?
Fall off the tournament ladder in
April and there are 60 other teams
and 60 other reputations to cush-
ion your fall. Fall off in March
and you're the cushion.
Look at how the bracket nar-
rows. Every step represents a few
thousand more households for
the next game, which means a
few thousand dollars more, and
perhaps a few more recruits who
know what the coach looks like
and would like to know, in per-
son, how all that excitement in
the background feels.
For established programs like
Kentucky and North Carolina �
and Oklahoma State to a lesser
degree � being on the tube in
April means a steady cash flow
and a stream of recruits. For ev-
erybody else, it means startup
money and a highlight video so
good that a talented kid might
commit to Marquette � even af-
ter he learns it means living in
Milwaukee. In the wintertime.
