'Say what?' P.C. campus speech code adopted
Staff R(?nnrrc: � M.
Staff Reports
The Least Carolinian
Following the nationwide
trend toward political correctness,
ECU announced yesterday a strict
new speech code, designed to in-
still family values and make cam-
pus a kinder, gentler place.
The speech code was passed
by the ECU administration after a
sharp debate, a democratic vote
and a coin flip. The debate prima-
rily centered around what kind of
coin to use, and the George Wash-
ington quarter won a close vote
over the Silver Dollar.
The vote is seen as a clear
victory by Chancellor Dick Hurtz,
who vowed to stamp out every
use of the word "wiretapping
"Now there's a dirty word for
you he said. "Hey, you just said
the 'w' word, didn't you? Public
Safety, arrest that reporter
Dean of Students Harrv
Butts agreed that something ought
to be done to limit speech on cam-
pus. "When you've got people
writing in the newspaper refer-
ring to the chancellor as male geni-
talia, something has to give. Be-
hind his back maybe, but in the
newspaper?"
Not every member of the
administration thought the code
was a good idea. Dr. Moe Lester
and Dr. Hughjass, both vice chan-
cellors for business affairs, dis-
agreed with the policy.
"If people want to call us a
'rubber stamp administration'
then by George, thev ought to be
able to Lester said.
"I wasn't in on the
'improprietarily unsanctioned ra-
diotelephony' dammit. I really
wasn't. And speak into the potted
plant, will you?" Jass said.
Some of the words to be
banned, with the words that will
replace them, include the follow-
ing:

become "Public Safety

ECU's Parking Committee
decided yesterday to raze ECU
Chancellor Richard Eakin's
house to clear the way for an
18-story parking deck.
The new parking facility,
paid for through faculty sala-
ries, will accomodate 18,000
cars, although the space will be
reserved for resident and com-
muter parking only. Freshmen,
however, must still park at
Minges Coliseum.
"I'm thrilled to be able to
make this sacrifice for our stu-
dent body Eakin said after the
decision was announced. "I am
certainly willing to find other
living arrangements if it means
easier, more accessible and con-
venient parking for my stu-
dents
Eakin mentioned a par-
ticular interest in the South
Evans Street apartment com-
plex.
"The rent is quite reason-
able he said.
Labor costs for the park-
ing deck will fall particularly
low, since the millions of cam-
pus squirrels will be employed
and trained in parking deck ar-
chitecture.
"We decided that since
there are so many squirrels just
hanging around on campus ev-
ery day, we might as well put
them to work doing something
useful said Dean of Students
and Director of Planned Park-
ing Ron Speier. "We said to our-
selves, 'Selves, let's really think
this project out, unlike all the
other silly projects we've tried
this year
The local squirrels re-
sponded eagerly to the employ-
ment offer.
"Yeah said Hike Nuts,
speaker for the ECU Squirrel
Foundation, established in 1907
along with the university. "We
get kind of sick of frantically
chasing each other up and down
trees. Up and down, up and
down; we get a little seasick,
frankly. We're also trying to get
away from our spells of simply
attacking trashcans at random
and scaring the hell out of
passers-by. We're looking for-
ward to the challenge
The parking deck will in-
clude several unique options
voted upon through a random
student survey.
Students who just don't
have time to grab breakfast or
lunch can take advantage of two
drive-through windows,
McDonald's and Godiva. These
will be located near the entrance
of the parking deck, and all con-
sumed foods will be paid for
through a special "Feed the Stu-
dents" scholarship, sponsored
by wealthy local families.
For students with extra
time to kill between classes, a
special tavern will be located
toward the rear of the garage.
Daily specials will include
Killian's Red on draft, and vari-
ous renditions of the popular
White Russian mixed drink.
"We really want to give
the students what they want
said Director of Off-campus-
yet-on-campus Drinking and
Dining Frank Salamon. "You
asked for liquor, we're giving
you liquor
Salamon stressed that fake
IDs will simply not be accepted,
despite bribes from the younger
student body.
"No, nope and no again
he emphasized.
A movie theater is also
planned, Eakin said. This will
offer current movies, but at no
charge. Construction is slated
to begin April 1.Students inter-
ested in further information

ian, because we have a bridge to

The Least Carolinian
"It's like nothing I've ever
seen. I mean the Enquirer said he
was living in South America and
his body shows up in Greenville.
The implications are incredible
said the Director of Marine Ar-
cheology, Dr. Han Grip.
Dr. Grip was referring to the
body of Adolf Hitler that was
found caught in some fallen
branches in the Tar river early
Saturday morning. Tied to his
ankle was a small can of soup and
the body of Elvis Presley. It is
suspected that they had a suicide
pact, although no note was found.
But local tuna fisherman Hal
Wispweasle said he caught a tuna
last week that was in the midst of
digesting a small piece of paper
that read, "We want to die to-
gether in a hunk-a-burnin' love
The bodies are being stored
in the walk-in freezer in the back
of Wright Place Soda Shop, they
will not be open for viewing be-
cause of the level of decay. How-
ever, there will be a raffle to give
away the can of soup. The expira-
tion date on the can is still good.
Some lucky student will have a
hot meal with history.
What has baffeled authori-
ties most about this case is the
victim'schoice of wardrobe. Elvis
was wearing a fine silk embroi-
dered nightgown with a lovelv
nature scene sewn meticulously
on the lapels. He must have been
really fond of this particular ar-
ticle which he chose to die in. But
Hitler was the real surprise. For
his death he pulled out all the
stops and adorned his body with
the finest of threads. His plaid
leasure suit was starched to the
maximum, it even held its crisp-
ness in the muddy depths of the
Tar River. The characteristic small
moustache was abandoned for
the more fashionable goatee and
his feet were in the finest
wingtips. Clothes make the man,
don't they?
Local divers have scoured
the scene for more evidence and
have yet to find any. Both corpses
had lost all the contents of their
pockets, with the exception of
Elvis who was carrying a copy of
the Fat Boys' first tape in his chest
pocket and his right hand still
held the reminants of a peanut
butter and banana sandwich.
Authorities suspect these items
may have some link to a cellulose
cult.
The Greenville Police de-
partment has admitted to know-
ing that these two famous men
had been living in Greenville
since the end of the Reagan era.
They claim that the FBI swore
them to secrecy and threatened
to blame Kennedy's death on the
department if any of the infor-
mation leaked out.
This incredible find has put
Greenville on the world map and
sparked rumors of a theme park.
There are only two question left
to ask: Why Greenville? and Why
didn'Whey put out an album?

In a suprising turn of events,
a new addition has been added to
Eddie Payne's 1994 basketball ros-
ter. Six-foot-11 Botswaneese bas-
ketball sensation Kabul Webbi-
Shebeli has shunned UNC to come
to East Carolina.
"I liked the Minges atmo-
sphere Webbi-Shebeli said in a
March 28th telephone interview.
"When I visited ECU (for the Jan.
8th and 10th games versus Ameri-
can and George Mason), I saw an
team that desired to win. Plus, the
Pirate fan support was great. I
hope they will like me as well
The 19-year-old Webbi-
Shebeli hails from the Republic of
Botswana, an African country
slightly smaller than Texas. He
lives in a large house on the out-
skirts of Gaborone, the nation's
capital.
In recent years, Webbi-
Shebeli has become Botswana's
favorite son. He led his high school
to five consecutive African Na-
tional Championhips(He played
varsity basketball in eighth grade),
and averaged 2R.4 points, 13.1 re-
bounds, and 7.3 blocks per game

In 1992, Webbi-Shebeli got
to fulfill one of his dreams, repre-

the nickname "The Botswana
Beast
"Even though we didn't
place well in the medal rounds, I
gained much-needed experience
against NBA players such as
Vlade Divac and Toni Kukoc
Webbi-Shebeli said.
Matched up against Divac,
Webbi-Shebeli scored just lb
points in a 82-fv Botswana loss.
1 owever, his play caught the eye
of ECU assistant coach Martin
McGillan, who was watching the
game on satellite television.
"He's no star yet, but he
came back from the loss and
scored 27 points against Croatia
and 39 against Korea in the conso-
lation round McGillan said. "I
really like his style of play and
attitude
The move from Gabarone to
Greenville will be welcomed with
open arms, Webbi-Shebeli said.
"Gabarone (pop. 661,000) is so
large, vet I am still their greatest
basketball player. I was being
triple-teamed there, but in
America, I will be allowed to play
in a more team-oriented atmo-

Hopkins said, "I think we have
discovered a true gem. Kabul's a

The ECU Transit System
transports more than 17,000 stu-
dents per week between the sur-
rounding area of Greenville and
the ECU campus. The transit is a
student-operated organization
which employs student drivers.
Recently, ECU transit has
been accused of sexist allegations
in their hiring of student drivers.
The transit only has two female
drivers.
A female student, who
wishes to remain anonymous,
applied for the driver position in
September. After several months
she received no answer. From
another source, she discovered
that she had not been hired be-
cause she had not come in yet and
they did not know what she
looked like.
In response to this, the stu-
dent wrote a letter to Ryland
Walters, ECU Transit Manager,
inquiring as to why she had not
been hired and that if she did not
hear anything from him within a
week, she would contact the ad-
ministration.
Immediately, Walters re-
sponded and started calling her
references. She was promised to
have a job by the summer.
Walters admits that he re-
ceived the letter this week, but
does not un-
it
Democrats to hold convention
derstand why-
she feels as if
he did not hire
her because of
her gender.
"I hire
my drivers
based upon
their experi-
ence, when
they're avail-
able to drive
and what type
of license they have Walters said.
"No, I do not hire on bases of sex,
race or anything else
"Since the CDL (commer-
cial drivers license) law we're get-
ting fewer females with their CDL
license Walters said.
The transit has three lines.
The gold line serves College Hill,
Allied Health, Stratford Arms
apartments and the Greenville
Athletic Club.
The brown line serves
Speight, Mendenhall and the
Tar River area.
"The purple line is our big-
jjest route. We run two buses
for that
route up
until one
o'clock in
the after-
noon

said.

Chances are Senator Jesse
Helms will be nowhere near
Greenville's Ramada Inn next
weekend. That's because the
ECU College Democrats will
host the 1994 North Carolina
Young Democrat State Conven-
tion at that site April 8-10.
The convention will bring
in college democrats and Young
Democrats, those under 35 years
old, from around the state for
the three-day event.
At the convention, the
Young Democrats will elect
statewide officers and attend
issue forums. Elected officers
from around the state are ex-
pected to attend.
"The convention is a
good way to meet elected offi-
cials said Steve Benzkofer,
president of the ECU College
Democrats. "You get to hear
very interesting speakers, plus
the forums will be a good learn-
ing experience. The best thing
is that it gets young people in-
volved in the Democratic
party
The convention will begin
on Friday, April 8 when the
North Carolina Federation of
College Democrats will hold
their "mini-convention" to elect
officers. The ECU chapter of the
College Democrats is a member
of the federation, and Bill
Gheen, a junior political science
major at ECU, is president of
the Federation.
After the meeting, the Fed-
eration and others will sponsor
hospitality suites at the Ramada.
On the morning of April 9, the
Pitt County Democratic Women
will sponsor a continental
breakfast at 8 a.m.
Immediately following the
breakfast, the North Carolina
Young Democrats will hold a
business meeting. At this time,
the group will elect officers and
pass resolutions.
A luncheon will be held at
12:30 p.m. for convention par-
ticipants. Lt. Governor Dennis
Wicker will be the guest speaker
for the luncheon. "I heard
(Wicker) speak at Jefferson-
Jackson day, and he was very
interesting Benzkofer said.
"He said he loves ECU and he
was looking forward to coming
down to Greenville
From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m the
convention will feature three is-
sue forums for health care, en-
vironmental policy and foreign
policy. Some of the panels for
these discussions are being or-
ganized by Dr. David Conradt,
chair of the ECU department of
political science, and Dr. Car-
mine Scavo, professor of politi-
cal science will be a panelist on
the environmental issues forum.
After the issue forums,
U.S. Representatives Martin
Lancaster and Eva Clayton will
sponsor a reception. "This is a
good opportunity to meet your
representatives in Congress
Benzkofer said.
The highlight of the con-
vention, a banquet featuring
guest speaker U.S. Rep. David
Bonior, D-Mich will begin at
7:30 p.m. in the Ramada's Ban-
quet Hall. The banquet will be
organized by ECU College
Democrat Chris Hardee.
Accompanying the ban-
quet will be a dance from 9:30
p.m. to 1 a.m. The local rhythm-
and-blues band Cold Sweat will
perform at the dance.
The convention will close
Sunday April 10 when the new
Young Democrat officers will
hold their executive meeting at
9 a.m.
Those wishing to attend
the luncheon, the banquet and
the dance must purchase an $18
ticket from the Pitt County
Young Democrats or the ECU
College Democrats. To purchase
tickets or receive additional in-
formation, contact Steve
Benzkofer at 830-9239.
Students seem to
By Mike Walker
Staff Writer
Believe it or not, there are
actually students at ECU that
excel in their classes and receive
a GPA above a 3.5. Though these
students may be shunned by
other students during college,
after graduation, instead of
standing in the unemployment
line with the rest of us, they
may traveling abroad to make
important contributions to other
countries. How? With the help
of Dr. David Sanders and the
honors department at ECU.
The honors department of-
fers many types of scholarships
to outstanding college seniors
and graduate students. One ma-
jor scholarship, which is offered
annually, is the Fulbright Stu-
dent Program.
The Fulbright grant was
?pportunities
created in 1946 to "foster mu-
tual understanding among
nations through educational
and cultural exchanges The
scholarship is also available
for projects that are less spe-
cific if the student is able to
define the project well and
show how it can benefit the
country involved.
Another branch of the
Fulbright grant is available to
professors for research
projects. They also provide an
international faculty ex-
change.
"Of course, this is com-
petitive across the country
Sanders said. The Fulbright
program receives about 5,000
applications nationwide an-
nually and only accepts about
700. In order for a student to
be eligible for the Fulbright

RALEIGH (AP) � Plans to
create two minority congressional
districts were frequently fine-
tuned to favor incumbent Demo-
cratic congressmen, the state
Legislature's chief bill -drafter tes-
tified yesterday.
Gerry Cohen, director of bill
drafting for the General Assem-
bly, testified in federal court be-
fore a three-judge panel trying to
decide if North Carolina's con-
gressional districts are constitu-
tional.
A la wsui t filed by Duke Uni-
versity law professor Robinson
Everett and five white Durham
voters accuses legislators of prac-
ticing "racial gerrymandering" in
creating two districts with a ma-
jority of black voters.
But Cohen testified partisan
politics played a much bigger role
in how the lines were finally
drawn. He also said the redistrict-
ing plans were designed so that
one would be urban and one
would be rural.
The 5th Congressional Dis-
trict was red ra wn a t the request of
Congressman Steve Neal to favor
Neal's re-election chances, as were
the 3rd District for U.S. Rep. Mar-
tin Lancaster, the 7th District for
Rep. Charlie Rose, the 2nd District
for Rep. Tim Valentine and the 8th
District for Rep. Bill Hefner, Cohen
testified.
Cohen also said he was regu-
larly in contact with aides for the
congressmen, who suggested re-
drawing the lines to boost their
bosses' re-election chances.
In one case, Cohen said, a
tiny strip of one precinct was in-
cluded in Lancaster's 3rd District
so that one of Lancaster's aides
could continue to be a resident of
the district.
In another, the border be-
tween the 6th District and the
12th District was moved slightly
so that state Rep. Fred Bowman
would live in the 6th District.
Cohen said he was told to make
the change to include Bowman's
home because Bowman wanted
to be in the 6th District. Cohen
said there was also some concern
that Hefner, a subcommittee
chairman of the House Appro-
priations Committee, might lose
his seat if some district plans were
accepted.
"Rep. Lancaster called me
himself and said if it came down
to drawing a district that favored
him or favored Rep. Hefner, he
would rather have the district fa-
vor Hefner Cohen said.
Cohen said an appropria-
tions subcommittee chairman is
in a good position to direct fed-
eral projects to his home state.
A federal court already has
dismissed a lawsuit brought by
Republicans that accused legisla-
tors of political gerrymandering
to favor Democratic congress-
men. The court ruled that politi-
cal gerrymandering was not nec-
essarily unconstitutional.

"Residents can't find time to
study with a member of the op-
posite sex. Ideally, we will de-
velop different policies for dif-
ferent residence halls, as some
parents and students are against
changing the policy
Appalachian State Univer-
sity and UNC-Charlotte recently
adopted a method which allows
the students to vote on a policy
within the first three weeks of
the semester. At least 75 percent
of the residents must vote on
the policy and one policy must
receive two-thirds of the vote,
otherwise that residence hall fol-
lows the strictest policy.
UNC-Chapel Hilfrecently
changed the visitation policy at
six of its dorms. After taking a
vote among the resident popu-
lation, students decided to al-
lew unlimited visitation. Stu-
dents that object to the new
policy are reassigned to tradi-
tional dorms.
"This is one possibility we
are exploring Salter said.
The SGA released a reso-
lution supporting the decision
to change the visitation policy.

ECU Transit mainly serves

There has not been a fee in-
crease for the transit system in 12
years. Thev operate withaS18l),0tX

not operate on weekends largely
because of budgetary' reasons.
ECU Transit also has a char-
ter service for ECU organizations,
conventions that come to campus
and Greek organizations.
Recently, there has been con-
fusion over who funds the student
transit system. A recent student
letter in the editorial section of The
East Carolinian concerning the green
lights on the transit vans caught
Walters' attention.
"The SGA didn't put the
green lights on the van, we didhe
said. "Our vans are hard to see at
night. With the green light you
know it's the ECU Pirate Ride
ECU Transit was originally
started and funded by ECU's Stu-
dent Government Association,but
now it is funded by student fees
and is entirely run by students.
In response to the recent park-
ingsituation on campus, ECU Tran-
sit started the Commuter Shuttle
last fall. It runs every 10 minutes
between the hours of 7 a.m. till 2

As for the future of ECU Tran-
sit, Walters not only expects a new
line, but also to replace half of the
14-vehicle fleet and coastruct a tran-
sit maintenance facility. The ve-
hicles are now cared by the city of
Greenville.
In addition, Walters hopes to
start a route to Wal-Mart, Carolina
East Mall and the ECU School of
Medicine.
With this services also comes
the possibility of a student fee in-
crease to fund them.

The Fulbright does not al-
low students to do studies in
certain countries. One country
is England because it does not
have a foreign language or cul-
ture. "It's almost impossible to
get one to England Sanders

restricted are; countries that are

tries where a war is taking place

Sanders said no one has
approached him from ECU to

" People here characteristi-
cally undervalue themselves

tions to the Fulbright Program

As Opinion Editor, I have learned one very
importantthing:Ifthereisanissuethatangersyou
to no end and it doesn't even remotely involve
you, then you know that it's bad.
Case in point � ECU's Communication De-
partment. I transferred here two years ago, eager to
be a Communication major, but what I found was
an unorganized department, a quickly dwindling
staff and prerequisite courses that were closed or
not even offered at all. I was not happy. Ever since
then, the majority of comments about the depart-
ment have been decidedly negative, ranging from
pure frustration to outright amazement and anger.
I am here to say that it sltould not be so.
The first major problem is the lack of direc-
tion this department seems to have. Recently
introduced to faculty and majors alike was a plan
to split the department into two tracks: A BS
degree in Broadcasting and a B A degree in Com-
munication, incorporating Journalismand Public
Relations (although if certain people had their
druthers, print media would be a faint memory
soon forgotten).
This decision to split the department was
made not by a faculty vote, or even in response to
a student desire, but in the very echelons of the
aclrninistration. In other words, by a few depart-
ment heads that needed to fulfill a personal ideal
without the consent of the very people who make
the department possible. My question: Just who
exactly was involved with this decision?
Another annoying quirk of this department
is that Communication majors never seem to be
able to get into their required classes. And, for the
most part, the classes required for the major aren't
even offered on a regular basis. For example,
Communication Theories and Processes (Comm
2001) is open to anyone and everyone. Not that the
class is so wonderful that people flock far and
wide to bask in its essence, but the majors can't get
into the class until at least their sophomore year.
The remedy? The only excuse I ever heard
(and this includes the suggestion from the chair of
the department) was to put my name on a waiting
list and hope that someone hasn't paid hisher
fees. Well, that solution worked so well as to con-
vince me to be an English major.
The point is, getting into a prerequisite class
should not be this difficult. Communication classes
that meet in the computer lab are restricted to 15
people per class. And not only that, but these
computers were not installed properly and the
department refuses to fix them. The sad thingisthat
the administration refuses to pay for the repair.
My solution is this: Buy new computers, fix
the old ones and close the classes to majors only.
What on earth do non-Comm majors need with a
theory class that even the majors don't really need?
Either that or increase the faculty. But no, that, of
course, is exactly opposite to what the department
did. Since Fall 1991, eight faculty members have
either left or been let go � and two of tl tese were
hired in '91 and '93. Quite a turn-over for a once
strong and well-organized department. Why have
theseexperienced professors been drivenaway?Of
the faculty left, some have absolutely no experience
at all and those that do aren't adequate enough in
number to fill the gaping space. Another question:
Have any new faculty been hired for fall? And if so,
where does their concentration lie?
Because whether anyone wants to admit it or
not, for fear of being fired, written up on their
personal file or blackballed from the department,
slowly but surely, the journalism track is being
phased out. The proof? It's evident in the number of
terminals available for Basic Reporting (Comm
2200): 15. Has that number increased? No. Will it
anytime soon? No. Another example: The division
of the concentrations. Journalism is being quietly
swallowed up by a Public Relations track filled with
theory and no one is saying a word. In fact, faculty
members were told not to talk with students
about the department.
I am not a lone voice making a comotion for a
lost cause. There is dissatisfaction among faculty
and students alike, and a paranoia about saying
anything about it�a communication department
struck dumb. Ironic, huh?
And here's news for ya � print journalism
is here to stay.
By John P. Adams
Dr. Elders chastised for her liberal beliefs
Lastweek the ultra-liberal Dr.
Joycelyn Elders stated her opinion
thatanalsexwas as natural as vagi-
nal sex and that we, the American
public, should accept the homo-
sexual lifestyle and present it to
children in die public schools as a
viable alternative lifestyle.
Well, I, for one, am glad that
the liberal Dr. Elders is the surgeon
general because the longer she
holds this mammammmmmm
position the
more dam-
age she does
to President
Clinton. Her
viewsonho-
mosexuality
aresoabsurd
that there is
no need to
even rebut
them.
I think you could take all of
the negative press clippings on
President Clinton, including
Whitewater, and weigh them
against everything Dr. Elders has
said the last few months and they
would come out about equal in
terms of tainting Clinton's presi-
dency. Let's review some of Dr.
Elders' other ideas.
Elders is staunch advocate of
birth control education in public
schools, condom distribution and
legalized abortion. She thinks that
the American public is ignoring
teen pregnancies and that the situ-
ation would be improved by the
How can
someone
simultaneously
promote and
discourage teen
pregnancy?
above actions. Dr. Elders simply con-
tradicts herself. How can someone
simultaneously promote and dis-
courage teenpregnancy?This is what
she is doing even though she prob-
ably doesn't realize it. Let me ex-
plain.
If the state did educate every-
one in public schools about birth
control and the state distributed
condoms freely to all high school
����MHHl kids then the
message to kids
becomes, "it's
alright to have
sex all you want
This, of course,
will lead to in-
creased sexual
activity, which in
turn will resultin
more teen preg-
��' nancies despite
birth control measures.
According to the "700 Club"
condoms have a 1 in 3 failure rate!
Further the idea that condoms pre-
vent the spread of AIDS is seriously
flawedatbest. If the AIDS virus were
a golf ball, the holes which are found
in the tips of all latex would be the
equivalentofl5ftindiameter.Hows
that for safe sex?
Besides condoms and sex ed,
Dr. Elders' other way of controlling
teen pregnancy is abortion. As sur-
geon general, Elders should be con-
cerned with preserving life, not de-
stroying it. Make no mistakes about
it; a fetus is alive and subsequently
the abortion of any fetus is murder.
However, abortion serves another
purpose for Elders, which is eugen-
ics.
Dr. Elders is strongly in favor
of eugenics, and while abortion itself
is not generally considered as part of
eugenics, I think that the same basic
ideas are what's behind both. Since
the vast majority of women who
would gain access to abortion
through the president's health care
plan are the poverty stricken, no
other conclusions can be reached.
I know all of this might not
mean a whole lot to people our age
right now, but what Dr. Elders and
the government are trying to do is
destroy the family. It is simply a
matter of control. The government
wants to control you and me and the
best way they can achieve this is to
eliminate any control families main-
tain. What issue for families is more
difficult to grapple with, other than
drugs (which Dr. Elders favors le-
galizing), than teen sex? For the
government to promote sexual pro-
miscuity among teenagers, as Elders
suggest, isablatantattemptatdivid-
ing families on an issue which they
need to settle on their own terms.
Maybe the fact that Dr. Elders'
own family is so messed up has
something to do with her own de-
generative views (or is it the other
way around). Her son Kevin was
recently arrested for selling cocaine.
Dr. Elders, if your application of lib-
eral ideology doesn't work in your
own household, why are you trying
to force it on the rest of us?

AfcPl Pit? I
By Laura Wright
Generation Xers � defacing your body is cool
As I was walking through
the student store yesterday, I saw
a woman with tattoos on her arms
and across her back and I started
to think about what it means to
allow someone to take a needle
and draw a permanent picture on
your body. I know so many people
my age and younger who have
tattoos. Usually when I find out
that they have one, they are con-
templating where they want the
next one. I wonder if there is some-
thing about pain that is particu-
larly appealing to these people but
it seems like too widespread of a
thing to be masochism, I think
that there's got to be more to it.
My parents think that tat-
toos are a sign of lower class trashi-
ness. I guess that they picture
Harley Davidson riders with atti-
tudes. I guess they picture men in
leather with nude blonde women
emblazoned across their chests
and arms. They probably associ-
ate tattoos with the military, with
phrases like "Semper Fi Up un-
til a few years ago, I guess that I
made those associations too. I
thought that people with tattoos
were scary. I thought that only
men, specifically men with bad
attitudes, got tattoos.
Then there was Cher.
Maybe that's where the
present craze with marking our-
selves for all of the world to see
came from. I use "ourselves" here
to refer to my generation. Perhaps
you've heard of us � Generation
X, slackers, busters, etc. I'm a little
tired of being referred to as an
"xer" but if the shoe fits Genera-
tion X has been defined as being
basically undefinable. We, the
folks between the ages of 18 and
29, have no common ground.
There hasn't been a major
war during our lifetime to unite us
as a generation, there hasn't been
a national crisis that has brought
us together as a unified front. We
pay close attention to the news, as
if we're waiting for one to occur.
We don't believe the things that
television tells us are true but we
watch TV anyway. We don't have
a lot of hope for the future; we
haven't been given any. Gener-
ally speaking, we won't do as well
as our parents and we know it.
So I think that we've found
things to unite us. We've got MTV.
We can talk about videos. We've
got the cultural phenomenon
known as The Simpsons. We've
got more education than the gen-
eration before us but we've got
less opportunities to put it to
proper use. And (oh, yeah), we've
got tattoos.
Not too long ago, I was drink-
ing a beer with a friend and the
subject of tattoos came up. He told
me that he thinks that tattoos rep-
resent a form of tribilization for a
generation without any unifying
principles. If you think about it, it
makes sense. If you don't think
about it, it sounds pretty stupid.
But whatever you think
about tattoos as a form of tribal
marking, it seems that an entire
generation of people has removed
the past stigma of tattooing and
brought the process into th.
mainstream.
There is still some of t
rebellious attitude surroum
ing permanently marking one
body that I associate with bik
ers and the like. It's a pretty
defiant thing to permanen'
alter one's flesh. It's a stat
ment: "Look what I wasn
afraid to do and look at what I
can't undo even if it pisses you
off
The punk movement in
England arose out of a similai
set of ideas. The job market
was bad and people united
against a system that was not
beneficial to them by outra-
geously altering their appear-
ances. At least we can hide our
tattoos (unless they are in re- .
ally obvious places) � it
harder to hide green hair.
There may be something
to the masochism thing though.
I think that maybe we like to
hurt ourselves; body piercing
has also become really popu-
lar. One frequently encounters
punctured noses, nipples and
navels and I hear of new places
to pierce all the time. Perhaps
we feel that we haven't suf-
fered enough as a generation.
Along with unifying ourselves
with tattoos, we'll inflict some
pain on ourselves by poking
little holes in our skin.
I've always wondered
what people with nose rings
did when they had colds.
Eeeew.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Elections for the executive offices of the Student
Government Association are here.
As the 1993-94 Student Body President, I would
like to inform you of my endorsement for Brynn Thomas
as the 1994-95 Student Body President. Mr. Thomas'
record of achievements and dedication to the Student
Government is very impressive. While serving as the
Speaker of the Legislature and Chairman of the Appro-
priations Committee, Mr. Thomas has developed the
political ability and experience which is absolutely nec-
essary to serve as President of the Student Body. His
authorship of the Campus Safety Act, as well as his
valuable work on the Grade Replacement Policy serves
as testimony to his dedication and understanding of
student needs and interests. As a member of the execu-
tive council, Mr. Thomas played a key role inkeeping the
Halloween celebration at East Carolina for the second
straight year. Mr. Thomas has a well denned focus that
will enable him to achieve his visionary yet realistic
goals.
I am fully aware of the excellent competition Mr.
Thomas faces in Ian Eastman and David Reid. Mr.
Eastman is a strong candidate with some worthy goals.
David Reid, despite being in his twenties, is a seasoned
local politician, running on a reformist platform. Despite
their past achievements, David Reid and Ian Eastman
lack the experience and knowledge of the operations
oftheStudentGovernment Association to effectively
lead the organization. The goals expressed in their
platforms are unrealistic and uninformed. Ian
Eastman has served on the SGA for one year but his
input,atbest, has been anemic. David Reid has never
served on the Student Government Association and
hisplatform grossly illustrates his misunderstanding
of the policy making process on the university level.
If these candidates cared so much about stu-
dent life, then why have they waited until the race for
student body president to express their views and
offer their input? The Student Government provides
a forum and this forum has been ignored by David
Reid and not utilized by Ian Eastman.
This letter is not a personal attack on Ian or
David; however, it states the facts about the candi-
dates. The thought of someone becomingSGA Presi-
dent without ever serving on the student govern-
ment really scares me. David and Ian simply don't
have the background for effective leadership.
AsthecurrentStudentBodyPresident,Istrongly
encourage you to vote for Brynn Thomas and keep
the Student Government at ECU in experienced and
capable hands.
A. Keith Dyer
Student Body President
To the Editor:
I am writing this recomendation in support of
Mr. Brynn Thomas for the position of SGA President.
It has been my pleasure to work with Brynn for
the past year. During this time Brynn has demon-
strated exemplary leadership and organizational
skills through the planning and execution of several
programs.
One of these programs that I am most im-
pressed with is The Campus Safety Act. Through the
implementation of this resolution, E.C.U. has pro-
vided greater protection for the students and staff,
giving the Universities sic existing policy tr
edge it needed to be one of the best in the natioi
By observing these qualities, I am confident
that Brynn can ful-fill sic the obligations of th
office and represent East Carolina with both ho
estv and distraction.
John Ezzell
I.F.C. President

"Wasps" is a comedy celebrat-
ing the unbreakable spirit of the

of political corruption and legal
turmoil. This is a society where

bringing
Aristophanes'
hilarious fifth
Century B.C.
comedy
"Wasps" to the
United States
and Canada for
the seventh
time. Based in (
London, England, Aquila Produc-
tions specializes in presenting pro-
ductions of classical drama by
uniting a firm knowledge of clas-
sical scholarship with the skills of
theatre professionals. Through the
help of experienced actors who
have worked at some of Britain's
premiere theatre companies, the
company aims to produce classi-
cal drama accessible to a modern

addicted to
litigation.
"Wasps"
draws us
into the
world of an
Athenian
father,
Procleon,
and his son,
Anticleon.
Procleon has become obsessed
with jury service and is an unwit-
ting servant to the political ma-
neuvers of corrupt men such as
Cleon. The play charts the attempts
of Anticleon to curb his father's
addiction and to teach him instead,
to lead a life of gentle refinement.
In true Aristophanic fashion, it all
goes wrong but leads to hilarious
results.
This innovative production
"Wasps" breathes new life into a
rarely performed, but important
play. It presents a funny, musi-
cal coined v which unites a brand
new translation by director Pe-
ter Meinek with specially com-
posed musical score.
Accompanying the produc-
tion, Aquila offers participatory
workshops, seminars and class
visits designed to help illumi-
nate different aspects of the
Company's work. These work-
shops are used to educate the
audience about the classic back-
ground behind the productions.
An open forum discussion will
take place on Monday afternoon,
before the play startsat 8:00 p.m.
in Hendrix Theatre.
"Wasps" is approximately
80 minutes long with a cast con-
sisting of Dennis Conlon as
Xanthius, Peter Hilton as
Anticleon, Robert Richmond as
Procleon, and SteveOwen as the
chorus, baking women and
creditor. All other parts are
played by members of the com-
pany.

Lughnasa
plummets
for audience
By Cindy Hawkins
Staff Writer
When I saw mv first play, I
laughed, cried, clapped with teary
eves and found myself rooting
for the characters as if they were
my favorite sports team. I knew
them. I liked knowing them. They
offered an experience that tran-
scended thecramped theater seats
and stage boundaries. It was pre-
cisely this transcendence that I
sought in "Dancing At
Lughnasa but was unfortu-
nately denied. Though the pro-
duction successfully executed
some potent and contagious mo-
ments, these moments were in-
terspersed with times of boredom
and confusion.
Throughout the show, the au-
dience is transported to 1936 Ire-
land via Michael's (played by Jeff
Hirsch) memories. It is these flash-
backs that enable the audience to
intimately experience a critical
point in a family's struggle.
Michael's memories are bitter-
sweet, conveying not only senti-

Sweet astounds
Chapel Hill
By Kris Hoffler
Staff Writer
This past Friday night Mat-
thew Sweet took the stage in
Chapel Hill as a headlining act.
Until now, he's been the opening
act for the Indigo Girls and Mel-
issa Etheridge, who are both on
tour these days.
Kristin Hall was the first to
take the stage. She is a folksinger-
�I think; I mean if there is a
fema le version of Neil Young, this
is it. She played all originals, a
totally acoustic set with a guitar
and harmonica. It was obvious
she is a Chapel Hill favorite just
by the way she talked with the
crowd. She also made the keen
observation that the new Cat's
Cradle looks exactly like the old
Cat's Cradle on the inside. This
somehow made me feel better
about being in a mini-mall.
At 11:30, Sweet took the stage
with drunken grin, his favorite
Mortal Kombat T-shirt and the
first of about seven guitars. He
and his bandmates were all
plugged into vintage amplifiers.
A couple of old Fenders for bass
and lead, and an old Vox for
Sweet. Sweet has commented be-
fore on the value of old amplifi-
ers and their lovely sound when
overloaded.
With his old Gibson ready to
roar, Sweet kicked off the show
with Dinosaur Act. There was
maybe a five-second break be-
tween songs; he played about six
to eight songs without saying a
word to the audience. Sweet
changed guitars at least every
other song; the list is something
like three Stratocasters, two
Gibsons and a couple of Les Paul's
finest. I think he was showing off
his new toys.
He played many of the old
favorites off Girlfriend. The crowd
zealously reacted to such tunes
as "Waiting for the Sun "Girl-
friend and "I Wanted to Tell
You Before playing "Wynona
Sweet went into a little tirade on
how this song was not about
Wynona Ryder and that he hadn't
plaved it live in years. It was a
harder version than the album
cut and much rougher, but great.
There were also many selec-
tions from Altered Beast. These
tunes were much harder in the
studio and even better live. Many-

Matthew Sweet
Son of Altered
Beast
Jjjj
Out of the studio and into the
crowd, Matthew Sweet's newest
release, Sun of Altered Beast, is al-
most entirely live. This album is
exciting because it gives the listener
a feeling of the raw power of Sweet's
music-outside of the studio. The
energetic, distorted guitar sound is
liberating, a sound that could have
onlvbeen influenced bv Neil Young.
Add to this the haunting power of
Sweet's voice and lyrics and you
have one great artist.
The album opens up with a
remix of "Devil With the Green
Eyes which hasan interesting com-
bination of strummed and picked
guitar full of highly emotional en-
ergy. Sweet's voice carries over this,
his words contrasting with the
music as thev weave a tale of love-
lorn sadness.
The best song on the album is
"Someone to Pull the Tngger Al-
though it is one of the slower songs
on the album, it still demandsatten-
rion. Sweet's rough but gentle kiss
of a voice keeps me spellbound,
reveling in his woeful tale that's
held inside a cocoon of incredible
guitar acompaniment.
The song that follows,
"Knowing People picks up the
pace again and begins to prepare
the listener for the final, faster songs
that lead up to the climatic end ol
the album, "Ultrasuede This is

Cowboys rustle
up OU's Switzer
(AP)�It didn'ttake Jerry Jones
long to find a new coach for the
Dallas Cowboys.
Hours afterjimrny Johnson said
he was leaving the two-time defend-
ing Super Bowl champions, Jones
met with former Oklahoma coach
Barry Switzer to finalizea contract to
become the Cowboys' next head
coach, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram
reported on Wednesday.
The former Sooners coach be-
comes the third head coach in the
Cowboys'history. Switzer and Jones
met Tuesday night in north Texas,
the Star-Telegram said, citing team
sources.
Calls to the homes of Jones and
Switzer went unanswered early to-
day.
Switzer, 56, won three national
titles in 16yearsatOklahoma before
leaving amid several scandals in-
volving arrests of his players. He
went 157-29-4atOU and won or tied
for 12 Big Eight titles.
'If I was offered the job, I prob-
ably would accept it Switzer told
The Daily Oklahoman on Tuesday.
"But it's too premature to talk about
anything that would affect that op-
portunity. That's all I want to com-
ment about right now
Johnson's resignation capped a
long-standing feud that boiled over
inOrlando,Fla,lastweekwhenJones
suggested in a barroom conversa-
tion that he should hire a new coach,
and his remarks gotback to Johnson.
"After our discussions, we ha ve
mutually decided that I would no
longer be the head football coach of
the Dallas Cowboys Johnson said
after twodaysofmeetingswimjones.
Johnsonsaid heexpectstocoach
again, although no NFL head coach-
ing positions are open for the up-
coming season.
Jones gave Johnson a monetary
settlementhecalleda "big-timethank
you"�itwasbelieved tobeamulti-
million dollar payment � and the
two were amiable at their press con-
ference.
Before the Switzer story broke,
Cowboys defensive coordinator
Butch Davis was believed to be a
strong candidate for the job.
Johnson, meanwhile, was ex-
pected to spendseveral more daysat
the Cowboys' headquarters before
heading to the Honda Keys to relax
on his boat and move into a new
house in the area.
Johnson, who originally signed
a 10-year contract to coach the Cow-
boys, received permission to joinany
team he wants�whenever he wants
� despite the five years left on his
contract.
In the five years he spent in Dal-
las, Johnson took the Cowboys from
l-15toconsecutiveSuperBowltitles.
He said he's leaving not because he
couldn't do it again, but because he
was having trouble wanting to.
"This boiled down to a personal
thingbetweenjirnmyandjerry'said
Davis, who's spent 15 years working
with Johnson. "It was nothing about
football, it was nothing about man-
agement. This was personal
Johnsonandjoneshadbeen trad-
ing verbal salvos since the Cowboys
defeated the Buffalo Bills 30-13 in the
Super Bowl in January.
The players, who still have to
answer to Jones, were staying out of
that aspect of the breakup.
"I'm paid to play football, but I
had a lot of respect for what Jimmy

It remains to be seen how much
Aikman would respect Switzer,
whom he played for as a freshman
at Oklahoma before transferring to

ately reachable for comment. How-

Tyson fails
high school
equivalency
(AP) � Mike Tyson's plans
for early release from prison have
been put on hold because he failed
the high school equivalency exam.
Tyson, who is serving a six-
year sentence for rape at the Indi-
ana Youth Center, can retake the
two-day test in 90 days, Phil
Sla verts, assistant superintendent
of operations at the facility, said
Friday.
If the former heavyweight
champion had passed, he would
have had three months deducted
from his sentence, making him
eligible for parole next February.
Tyson is scheduled to be released
in May 1995.
Tyson's supporters said he
was more determined than ever
now to pass the test, and still hopes
to be released early.
"I just want to emphasize, that
though we certainly had hoped to
pass on the first time many
persons have had to take it two
and three times said
Muhammed Siddeeq, a school-
teacher who is tutoring Tyson.
Slavens said it was "reason-
ably common" for inmates to fail
the test, but more than 50 percent
of every testing group usually
passes.
"He's disappointed because
he had been studying so hard in
the classroom and with a tutor
but he's not accustomed to taking
tests and he was somewhat ner-
vous said the Rev. Charles Wil-
liams, president of the Indiana
Black Expo and a friend of Tyson's.
Tyson was convicted two
years ago and sentenced to six
years in prison for raping a beauty
pageant contestant in 1991 in an
Indianapolis hotel room.
The U.S. Supreme Court last
month refused to hear Tyson's
appeal, but there will be a hear-
ing in June in Marion Superior
Court to determine if prosecu-
tors knew Tyson's accuser
planned to sue and make money
from the case.

East Carolina's Irates went
to College Easterns this past
weekend to have their metal
tested and see exactly where they
stand against other ultimate
teams. In the end, the Irates, pre-
viously No. 3 in the nation, cap-
tured their first College Easterns
title ever, remained undefeated,
leapfrogged No. 2 Stanford Uni-
versity and are now the No. 1
ranked college ultimate team in
the United States.
East Carolina entered
Easterns as the No.3 seed in the
tournament. After Saturday wins
over Cornell (13-8), WilliamsCol-
lege (13-3) and Pennsylvania (13-
5), the Irates entered Sunday's
single elimination play deter-
mined to walk away champions.
After smashing Dartmouth
13-3, the Irates encountered Geor-
gia, the No. 1 team in the nation.
Georgia jumped out to a 3-0 lead,
but the Irates were not ready to
bow down. ECU went on an 11-1
run to knock UGA out of the
tournament and grasp the
nation's top spot, 11-4.
The win pushed the Irates
into the semifinals against the
team that erased their National
Championship hopes in 1993,
the University of California at
Santa Cruz. In what would be-
come the most exciting game of
the tournament, the Irates got
revengeand sent Santa Cruz
back to California as 10-7 los-
ers.
The defending College
Eastern and national champi-
ons awaited the Irates in the
finals. UNC-W, playing in front
of their home crowd, were hun-
gry to avenge two previous
losses to ECU. UNC-W came
out firing, scoring four of the
first five goals. Once again
though, East Carolina showed
its resilience by outscoring
UNC-W 8-1, simultaneously
quieting the crowd and the crit-
ics, capturing the College
Easterns Championship and the
No. 1 spot in the nation.
The Irates championship
wasn't the only ultimate news
ECU has to celebrate. In the

Dominic Amorosa, tried to
show during the trial that
fighters often say things to
distract their opponents, catch
them off-guard and drop
them.
Ferguson, 37, agreed such
"trash talk" occurs fre-
quently. But he said he be-
lieved Mercer's alleged offer
was genuine, and he consid-
ered taking it.

Gillooly has enough time for cooling over summer
(AP) � Jeff Gillooly will re-
main out of jail until this summer as
he awaits sentencing for his role in
the attack on Nancy Kerrigan
Tonya Harding's ex-husband
was to have been sentenced Friday,
but the date has been moved back
to July 5 to allow time for the others
charged in the assault to have their
cases resolved.
"Jeff is going to be sentenced
after all the other defendants' cases
are disposed of Gillooly's lawyer,
Ron Hoevet, said Monday.
Gillooly pleaded guilty to rack-
eteering. As part of a plea agree-
ment, prosecutors agreed to recom-
mend he be sentenced to two years
in prison and fined SI 00,000. Under
Oregon sentencing guidelines,
Gillooly would have to serve 19
months behind bars.
However, Hoevet said it's pos-
sible the sentence could change,
depending on what happens to the
other defendants.
Under terms of his deal,
Gillooly agreed to testify against
others in the case. In Oregon, it's
routine for people who have made
such plea bargains to be sentenced
after all pending court actions
against others in the case are com-
pleted.
Two of the others, hit man
Shane Stant and his uncle, getaway
car driver Derrick Smith, told their
storv Monday night on "Larry King
Live
Smith said he received $4,000
from Gillooly to carry out the hit
but spent $7,000 in expenses.
"Actually, we went in the hole
he said.
In response to a telephoned
question asking what he would say
to Kerrigan, Stant said he wanted to
apologize but thought he should
DUKE
wait until alter the case is resolved
to prove he is sincere.
Smith said he thinks mam-
people now believe he and Stant are
"tivoprettvdecentguys"vhomade
a big mistake. Both said they expect
to serve ibout 18 months in prison.
Harding pleaded guilty tocon-
spiracv to hinder prosecution. She
was placed on three years' proba-
tion, fined $100,000 and agreed to
resign from the U.S. Figure Skating
Association. She also must donate
$50,000 to the Special Olympics, sl vk
psychiatric help and pav $10,000 in
court costs.

one of his offensive explosions.
"I know I said a prayer Lang
says. "The dog catcher's on the
bench. Who am I? I didn't have a
net
Lang didn't need one, and his
prayers were answered.
Last month, Krzyzewski
pleaded with his team to become
more active and less willing to let
Hill do all the work. It was a point of
particular frustration when Duke
lost a road game at Wake Forest
because Hill tried to do it all in the
stretch and his teammates just stared
at him.
Instead of looking lost, the Blue
Devils played harder. Lang allowed
DISC
Robinson one basket, and with cen-
ter Cherokee Parks behind him,
that's the only score he would get
until there were 26 seconds left.
Jeff Capel, who had trouble re-
laxing in the early part of the season,
took over the point guard duties
usually assigned to Hill. Marty Clark
helped him and dished off to Parks
for a pair of baskets. Lang added a
jam and Hill could rest a little easier.
ChrisCollins, who has made his
mark as the 3-point bomber, couldn't
find his shooting touch. His defense
was more impassive.

part Krzyzewski said.
And then, there was "The Pass
Duke found another play for
the highlight tapes, similar to the
East Regional finals in 1989 when
Phil Henderson went in for a mon-
ster dunk against Georgetown's
Alonzo Mourning. This time, Capel
was dribblingon the wing, and with
the shot clock winding down, he
whipped a behind-the-back pass to
Lang, who hit a short jumper with
2:27 to play.
"I thought Jeff was just going to
step back and throw the ball Lang
said. "I didn't realize he had thrown
it behind his back until after I made
the shot. Then I'm like 'Jeff, you
threw that behind your back
"It's one of those plays where if
I miss the pass, you 're on the bench.
