SGA Elections '94
SGA Presidential race pits experience versus initiative
By Laura Al lard

Ian Eastman
Ian Eastman is a junior mar-
keting major running for SGA
president in Wednesday's elec-
Eastman feels that the
power of the student body lies in
their numbers.
"If we can get people moti-
vated, we can accomplish what-
ever we want Eastman said.
Eastman has spent two years
on the SGA and has served as a
member of the Screenings and Stu-
dent Welfare Committees, has
sen ed as one of six students on
the Media Board and as one of six
students on the Student Union
board of directors.
He has also served as the
treasurer and social chairman of
Lambda Chi Alpha and the presi-
dent of the interfraternity council
(IFC), where he oversaw more
than 1,000 members.
During Eastman's term in
IFC, the organization won three
awards for judicial, social and
management programming. This
was the first time ECU's IFC has
earned three awards in one year.
Eastman attributes this suc-
cess to the collective action of the
group and hopes to implement
this philosophy for the SGA.
As SGA president, Eastman
hopes to extend the drop date to
the end of the semester, give stu-
dents more drops and implement
a passfail system where students
could declare up to two classes
passfail until the last day of the
semester. These classes would
count towards credits for gradua-
tion but would not be calculated
into students' GPAs.
Eastman also plans to con-
tinue his work on a program that
would allow students to use their
meal cards at area restaurants, and
to begin working towards having
the library open 24 hours during
exams, improving student park-
ing and increasing lighting and
security on campus.
"I am the only candidate to
be held accountable by passing
out hand-outs stating exactly what
I plan to do and not making open-
ended verbal promises Eastman
David Reid
David Reid, a junior politi-
cal science major, is running for
SGA president and plans to bring
a fresh perspective to student gov-
ernment at ECU.
"I think the students need a
president who will be more of a
voice concerning the problems on
campus such as crime, parking,
and the spending of student fees
said Reid.
Most of Reid's political ex-
perience lies in local politics where
he serves as the chair of
Greenville's Precinct 7, which cov-
ers the ECU campus. Reid is re-
sponsible for organizing the polls
in his district and, at 21, he is the
youngest person ever elected to
this position.
Reid also managed Mayor
Nancy Jenkins'campaign, worked
on the campaigns of U.S. Senator
Terry Sanford and N.C. Senator Ed
Warren, and is managing the cam-
paign of Cliff Everett for the seat of
Superior Court Judge.
"I have very good ties with
the city and I would like to see
stronger ties between SGA and the
city Reid said. "We need to work
together on such issues as noise
ordinances and parking
Reid feels that the SGA has
become an inclusive group that is
not metting the needs of all of the
students. He hopes to make the
representation match the students
at ECU moreclosely. Reid also plans
to publicize the spending and ac-
tivities of the SGA through thecam-
pus media.
"The SGA spends over
$100,000 in student fees each year
and I want students to know where
their money is being spent Reid
Reid plans to develop a series
of comprehensive long-range goals
based on student input.
He expects to gain this infor-
mation by sending SGA represen-
tatives to campus organizations and
produce a survey to determine what
students want from SGA.
Reid plans to base his actions
on the needs of students. "I am
trying to avoid insulting the stu-
dents with unrealistic goals just to
get their votes
Brynn Thomas
Brynn Thomas, a candidate
for SGA president in Wednesday's
election, is running on a platform
of experience.
Thomas is a junior majoring
in English and minoring in politi-
cal science. He has served on the
SGA for three years, and has been
an active member of the Appro-
priations and Elections Commit-
tees, Chair of the Procedures and
Appropriations Committees and
Speaker of the Legislature.
Thomas has also served on
the Judicial Review Committee, the
Fine Arts Funding Board, the ECU
Transit Board, the Faculty Senate
Credits Committee, and as the
Sigma Phi Epsilon Interfraternity
Council (IFC) representative.
"The relationships that I have
established in these positions
with student leaders, university
administrators, faculty and city
officials will enable me to more
easily attain the goals that I have
presented in my campaign Tho-
mas said.
As a member of SGA, Tho-
mas sponsored a resolution in
support of the new grade replace-
ment policy, sponsored theCam-
pus Safety Act, worked with city
officials to ensure the Halloween
celebration downtown and is cur-
rently working on the textbook
rental system.
"My commitment is to the
students of East Carolina Uni-
versity. Putting the students first
is the key to a responsive student
government Thomas said.
Thomas has divided his
goals into five specific areas. He
plans to continue his work on the
textbook rental program and to
implement the system during his
term, continue the campus safety
program, improve parking for
students on campus, bring back
the print yearbook and promote
student unity through SGA-
sponsored events.
"I will encourage students
and student organizations to uti-
lize the SGA as a means of devel-
oping leadership, receiving fi-
nancial support, and expressing
ideas and opinions Thomas
Three at bat for VP position Treasurer, secretary seats open
By Tammy Zion
Staff Writer
In alphabetical order, the
vice presidential candidates for
next year are Sheila Boswell,
Scarlette Gardner and Chris
Munley. Each have individual
reasons and qualifications for
wanting to represent ECU's stu-
dent body.
Sheila Boswell has been in
SGA for three years. She is the
chair of the screenings and ap-
pointments committee and be-
lieves this position has allowed
her to interact with the student
body and stay in touch with stu-
dent concerns and interests.
She is an elementary edu-
cation major, Teaching Fellows
recipient and an ECU ambassa-
dor. She wants to bring in more
funding for concerts through
student unions, to reinstate a
print yearbook and push new
parking projects forward
through the use of surveys and
presentations to the legislature.
Boswell feels that students,
as well as her opponents, some-
times have unrealistic expecta-
tions for SGA.
"It's really hard for me to
see someone who has never been
on SGA or has never been to a
meeting just jump into a posi-
tion such as vice president she
said. "My opponents are mak-
ing a lot of promises that they
can't keep, SGA's hands are tied
to a certain point and the admin-
istration has to take on active
role after we make our resolu-
tions. I'm going to graduate next
May and go out and get a job in
an elementary school and I'm
going to see a lot of things about
that school that I want to change,
but they're not going to make
me principal because of that
Boswell said that although
she and Brynn Thomas share
ideas and work together, she is
very flexible and a team worker
for the students' benefit.
Scarlette Gardner said that
she had made previous attempts
to join SGA, but the opportunity
was not offered. Gardner has
several reasons for wanting to
be vice president.
"I see the need for change
in the way student government
is currently run she said.
"There are a lot of things that
need to be done to make it a
more effective organizations
such as recruitment and com-
munication. Nobody seems to
know exactly what's going on in
SGA; people don't know how to
get involved. They have no idea

Four candidates square off
in two races for SGA executive
offices Wednesday. In the race
for SGA Secretary, Maureen
McKenna faces Doug Spears, and
in the race for SGA Treasurer,
Michael Carnes faces John Hardie.
Secretary Candidates:
Maureen McKenna is a
sophomore therapeutic recreation
major from Olney, Md. She has
served on SGA since the begin-
ning of this semester as a day
student representative. McKenna
is also vice president of the
Panhellinic Council and a mem-
ber of Alpha Omega Pi sorority.
"I serve on the student wel-
fare committee McKenna said.
"We've done a lot this year, and I
have learned a lot from being on
SGA. I'm really interested in it
McKenna currently serves
on the Student Welfare Commit-
tee. "Our main goal for the year
was to help expand the student
health building and get some kind
of AIDS testing through student
health she said.
"Even though I didn't pass
any resolutions, I voiced my opin-
ion on several issues McKenna
said. "In my committee, we dis-
cussed the student health center,
AIDS testing, the campus safety
act and expanding the computer
"Some of the things I would
like to work on next year are the
book rental plan, where you can
rent books for the semester for
$50, and again, the AIDS testing,
because it has become such a prob-
lem these days.
"I also want to make fresh-
men aware of what SGA is, and
how to get involved. I know, when
I was a freshman, I didn't know
very much about SGA
McKenna said she was es-
pecially qualified for the duties of
secretary, which include taking
attendance, typing and distribut-
ing the minutes and assigning
people to committees. "I'm a very
organized person she said.
"I'm dedicated. Whenever I set
out to do something, I get it
"I also have leadership
ability � I have had experience
in leadership positions in the
past. I also take SGA very seri-
ously, which I don't know if
everyone does
Doug Spears is a junior
business major from Winston-
Salem who has served on SGA
for a little over a year. He said
the current treasurer, Rich
Paravella, sparked his interest
in student government.
"I'm glad I did join SGA;
I've seen how things work
Spears said. "I'm on the Student
Welfare Committee, which deals
with general student issues that
come up.
"When this fall came
around, I knew I wanted to be
on the appropriations commit-
tee, which deals with the alloca-

May 17 will mark the 40th
anniversary of the Brown v. Board
of Education Supreme Court deci-
sion. In recognition of this occa-
sion, ECU's Minority Presence
Initiative presented "A Forty Year
Retrospective of Brown v. Board of
Education: The Continuing Quest
for the Elusive Prize a lecture by
Dr. Robert A. Pratt.
The lecture dealt with the
impact of the Brown decision, its
evolution and the effect that presi-
dential administrations had on
race relations in the United States
in the past.
"The Brown decisions spoke
directly to the issue of school seg-
regation Prattsaid. "Itservedas
the catalyst that would ignite the
Civil Rights Movement
Pratt gave his assessment of
the effect that presidential admin-
istrations had on race relations
and the extent of black support.
According to Pratt, black
support was most evident during
Jimmy Carter's campaign and
election. But enthusiasm for him
diminished as they realized he
did not address economic prob-
lems of the black community.
"After Carter's first year in
office, an additional 131,000black
families fell below the federal gov-
ernment poverty line and black
unemployment was twice that of
whites Pratt said.

Tornadoes take back seat to Final Four
Students organize to raise funds for Bosnia
The rising death toll in Bosnia-Herzegovina has propelled a
group of Harvard Unive rsity undergraduates to try to raise $50,000
for a relief truck, a driver and 20 tons of food. About 80 students
planned to visit every house and first-year dormitory to deliver
literature and collect donations for the truck, which would transport
food and medicine to Sarajevo and possibly carry out refugees. The
group hopes to solicit donations of at least $10 each and to raise
awareness about the plight of Bosnian civilians, thousands of whom
have been killed, raped and tortured over the past two years in a
campaign of "ethnic cleansing A benefit concert was held March
4 at Boston University's Morse Auditorium. Several Harvard stu-
dents helped arrange the concert of Turkish, Slavic, American,
Peruvian and other ethnic music.
Policy aids children of UNC law alumni
An admissions policy begun this year is giving a break to
nonresidents whose parents are UNC-Chapel Hill Law School alumni
by allowing their applications to be considered with those of in-state
residents. Dean Judith Wegner defends the policy, saying it is
practiced at other public law schools and the out-of-state applicants
must still pay the higher, out-of-state tuition. Annually, about 3,200
people apply to the law school, but only 235 are accepted, and most
of them are in-state residents. Some graduates of the law school have
said the policy discriminates against minorities and nonresidents
whose parents did not attend UNC. Wegner said only a handful of
alumni children are entering the law school under the new policy.
� Even so, by admitting more out-of-state applicants, the university
; gets more money because of the higher tuition those students pay.

! Dog tags are Spring Break souvenir
Without MTV, college students flocking to the beach needed
some kind of watershed memory to take home after break, and it
turned out to be dog tags. Sets of personalized dog tags issued by
' Beach Patrol suntan products were hot souvenirs among breakers
J this year. About 1,000 tags that read "Beach Patrol" on the top line
and were personalized on the next two lines were sold foi $5 each or
' given away free with the purchase of a product, said Jennifer Carter,
� promotions director. MTV, by the way, decided to broadcast its
�Spring Break shows from the West Coa-1- this year after a lee-than-
jenthusiastic response from Daytona Beach business leaders last

People who saw homes and busi-

thunderstorms feel neglected as
the Final Four college basketball
festivities continued in the city.
Thirty houses, most on
Charlotte's west side, were de-
stroyed when the storms hit on
March 27. One person died and
damage to 300 buildings in
Mecklenburg County was esti-

Other storm damage was regis-
tered on that day in the mountain
and the Piedmont sections of
North Carolina.
Some Charlotte residents in
the damaged areas were angry
Sunday over how long it has taken
to clean up their neighborhoods
and get back into their homes.
"People need to pay more
attention to the buildings and get
them fixed instead of the Final

Steger asked Sunday that
folks drag tree limbs and other

Six killed in head-on collision after police abandon chase
DENTON, N.C. (AP) � The
Den ton police chief said his officers
abandoned a high-speed chase with
a car that moments later collided
with another vehicle head-on in an
accident that killed six people over
the weekend.
Two police officers had aban-
doned their pursuit of Jerry Gray
Harrison of Lexington on Sa turday
night before his car reportedly
crossed the center line of N.C. 109
and slammed into a vehicle carry-
ing five people, the chief said.
"We do not involve ourselves
in high-speed chases Donald Clark
said. "But unfortunately we cannot
be responsible for what someone
else does behind the wheel of his
Harrison was killed, as well
as the five in the other car, who were
all from Thomasville. The wreck
killed thedriver, FrankJames Canty,
46; Estele Montgomery, 39; her 6-
year-old son, James; her 12-year-
old niece, Lisa Wilson; and Cedric
Antonio Kinard, 25, who worked
with Montgomery at a plastics com-
pany. There were no survivors.
Den ton police began chasing
Harrison's Pontiac after receiving a
tip that the 46-year-old Lexington
man was driving erratically, Clark
said. The pursuit started when Of-
ficer Tammi Britt and Sgt. Tommy
Williams saw Harrison's car pull
out of a convenience store parking
With lights and siren on, the
officers chased Harrison for about a
mile, reaching speeds of about 65
mph, authorities say. But when
Harrison accelerated after crossing
North Main Street, the officers called
off the pursuit, Tlie News & Record of
Greensboro reported yesterday.
"We're not gonna drive like
that said Clark, who noted that
the department prohibits officers
fromengagingin high-speed chases.
The highway patrol reported
a Den ton police officer had reduced
his speed after he got the license
plate number, although he was still
in pursuit. Trooper B.K. Ratliff of
the state Highway Patrol estimated
Harrison's car was traveling at 100
mph at the time of the crash. Wit-
nesses said Harrison,46, was north-
bound when he veered into the
southbound lane, apparently to pass
two cars ahead of him.

Chris Munley is currently
active with ECU's Interfraternity
Council (1FC), Vice president of
Kappa Sigma and office manager
for ECU's division of continuing
education. A business adminis-
tration major, Munley wants to
heighten student awareness
about SGA.
He said that SGA has not
benefited students recently, and
that all too often when a student
is elected, he or she may only be
interested in getting re-elected.
"(If I win the election) I will
be able to actually get down in the
trenches and do a little fighting for
the students' rights on campus
Munley said.
Munley, along with his run-
ning mate Ian Eastman is hoping
to extend library hours during
exam weeks, incorporate a pass
fail policy while in office, expand
meal card use to off-campus es-
tablishments and to step up cam-
pus security for student well-be-
ing, including theft of personal
property such as bikes.
"Our main goal is to change
SGA into a proactive organiza tion
instead of a reach ve organiza tion
Munley said.
Munley is extremely con-
cerned that the SGA recently "mis-
managed funds" by putting a large
sum of money into a frozen bank
account for future use. He said the
money will just be replenished
next year and it could have been
put to proper use now.

lars would have bought a heck of
a lot of lights for campus Munley

new park, Jacobs Field. His next
stop: Charlotte, N.C, for the
NCAA college basketball cham-
pionship between his home-state
Arkansas Razorbacks and Duke.
First lady Hillary Rodham
Clinton is not staying home, ei-
ther. She plans to toss out the first
pitch for her beloved Chicago
Cubs at Wrigley Field.
It is a last gasp of fun for the
president, who begins a four-day,
five-state tour Tuesday to promote
his sagging health care campaign.
He returned Saturday from a West
Coast vacation.
The former Arkansas gover-
nor already attended two Razor-
back games in the tournament. He
planned to spend the night in
Charlotte, and promote his health
care plan there Tuesday.

rion of money to different groups,
which is the key committee on
.student government. So I switched
lover to appropriations and became
' the secretary of that committee.
"Since I've been involved on
SGA, it has become an interest of
mine, and I am interested in mov-
ing up and becoming more in-
volved he said. "As I move up, it
will give me more confidence and
help me organize the way I do
things, and actually, will be a big
building block for myself
Spears said that his work on
the appropriations committee is
similar to the tasks he will have as
SG A secretary. "I've been on SGA
for quite a while he said. "I know
the ins and outs, and two, I've
been secretary of my committee,
and I've dealt with the current
secretary also.
"It's more of a cut-and-dry
job. It's not a position where I
have a platform and here I say
'this is what I'm going to do
Spears said.
In his previous service on
SGA, he said he helped new orga-
nizations such as the investment
club and the construction man-
agement club receive funding.
"i think I do have good ex-
perience on student government
Spears said. "My excited interest
in SGA, I think, will help me do
a good job and will encourage oth-
ers to do their jobs as well. It's
almost like a hobby
Treasurer Candidates:
Michael Carnes is a junior
marketing major from Charlotte
who has served on SGA for sev-
eral years. He currently serves on
SGA as a day representative and
has served as SGA secretary and
speaker of the house. In his ca-
pacity of secretary, Carnes sat on
the Fine Arts Funding Board and
the Transit Board. He is also a
member of Pi Kappa Alpha fra-
ternity, where he has served as
vice president and headed up the
annual "Walk to Wilmington"
fundraising drive.
At the beginning of last se-
mester, Carnes said he met with
Public Safety to facilitate the bike
patrol. Currently he is working
with Richard Brown, vice chan-
cellor for business affairs, on a
plan that would allow students
to pay tuition in monthly install-
ments. ECU has had such a plan,
but the company that created the
program had been bought out.
"Brown is going to form a
committee that will consist of
himself, someone from financial
aid and representatives from
student government to try to look
into this so we can better serve
the students Carnes said. "We
need to make sure every student
has the opportunity, whether
they're paying for school, or their
parents are paying for it
Carnes said his experience
on SGA for the previous three
years qualifies him for the posi-
tion of treasurer. "I've worked
closely with the past Treasurers
�Brad Osborne, Rich Paravella
he said. "Actually, Rich has sat
me down and shown me a lot of
what he does. While he was gone
to an SGA national convention, I
was taking care of the financial
reports for him.
"I'm aware of what the re-
sponsibilities for Treasurer are,
because the responsibilities for
treasurer and the responsibilities
for speaker are pretty much the
Carnes points to his accom-
plishments on SGA, such as the
bike patrol, as proof of his quali-
fications for office. "Instead of
saying 'I'm going to do this if
elected I'm already trying to do
it now, even before the elections.
Right now, I'm trying to increase
the emergency loan from $30 to
"I think it's very important
that the treasurer sit in on the
appropriations committee meet-
ing, not to vote, because they
cannot vote. The amount of
money that goes to organizations
is not up to the treasurer.
"Another thing that Keith
and I have talked about is the
talk about increasing student
fees he said. "We feel that the
treasurer should sit on the com-
mittee and put together a packet
to let students know where their
money is going
Carnes began the current
school year as secretary of SGA,
but resigned when he withdrew
from school for personal reasons
following an altercation at an
ECU home football game.
Carnes gave his reasons for
running for treasurer. "I feel that
I'm the best qualified candidate
he said. "I do it this because I
care. I genuinely do care about
the students, and I want to make
sure the students are represented
in the best possible way
John Hardie is a junior in-
dustrial technology major from
Yorktown, Va. who has served
on SGA for the past year. He is a
member of Sigma Phi Epsilon
fraternity and NAIT, the Na-
tional Association of Industry
and Technology.
"When it comes down to it,
and I know what the job is going
to require, I am willing to do the
job and I'm going to do it right
Hardie said.
Hardie said his work with
NAIT is an example of his dedi-
cation and hard work. "Before I
joined the group, NAIT didn't
even have a constitution with
SGA, until a mere two weeks
ago he said. "Because I took
the initiative, and I went to the
faculty advisor, and said 'Look,
I'm on SGA. Let me take this
thing over there and see what I
can do Now, NAIT, which is
very important to our major, will
have a budget from SGA.
"I started SGA at the begin-
ning of the year he said. "I guess
I'm not the most experienced per-
son, but I'm a person who wants
to get involved, and I think, when
you have that type of person
they're the ones that are going to
work for you, they're the ones
that are going to do whatever it
"I've been there. I consider
myself the ordinary student. I
see a lot of different perspectives
of the student body that a lot of
people don't see. One thing that
I'm really working hard for is
the computer labs
Specifically, Hardie said he
wants to extend the hours of the
computer labs to 24 hours. Cur-
rently, only two labs are open
after 9 p.m and many labs offer
only certain types of computers
and software.
"I did pass a resolution last
week on SGA to get the General
Classroom's labs on the third
floor open until 12 o'clock at
night, which isn't too much to
ask Hardie said. "I'm going to
send that resolution to the chan-
cellor and to each business de-
partment. I know I don't have a
computer, but it's almost a ne-
cessity now.
"I just want to make a dif-
ference. I want people to know
what we do, and how to get
involved. I think people are be-
coming more aware of it, be-
cause for the first time in the
past three years, all our day rep.
positions are filled. And that is
Hardie sees his role as trea-
surer as an advisor to the appro-
priations committee. "I would
work with the head of that com-
mittee hesaid. "That's the main
thing, and keeping track of all
the money and where its going.
"Also, I would have to
voice my opinion at the general
assembly meetings. A lot of
people really don't ask ques-
tions. And this money is just fly-
ing out the door. I think that's an
important part of treasurer to
say 'Look, we're giving away
thousands of dollars here. The
least you can do is ask ques-

Voter apathy signifies short-sightedness
Apathy, apathy, apathy. Yes, we at
The East Carolinian know a lot about that
word. There's nothing more frustrating than
to really care about an issue, present it to
the public, and get no response.
Not so with some people and
tomorrow's SGA elections. For all of the
letters to the Editor, thank you, and rest
'assured that you've been a part of the
American political system. For those who
haven't done anything and sat around com-
plaining about educational happenings, lis-
ten up.
This right to vote is not something that
everyone is born with. It is a privilege and
an honor that we, as Americans, tend to
take for granted entirely too much. The
whole concept of free elections is totally
'foreign to many countries and some don't
�ven have elections. Amazing, when you get
1 right down to it, hmmm?
Whether it's an SGA election, a paltry
- 'vote on whether to have chicken or beef at
the next family cookout, or a governmental
-election, for Pete's sake, just raise your
voice, your hand or that little lever in the
' booth and say something. There's nothing
worse than silence when you're given a
choice. Yes, there is, it's when you've been
stewing about an issue and conciously made the
decision not to do anything about it.
Probably the most gratifying
proceedures was when I walked into a voter's
booth for the first time and made my choice
for the presidential election. Whether or not
the party of my choice won or not is beside
the point. (They did.)
What is most important is the fact that I
had ideas of what I wanted changed, and
chose someone whom I believed could change
what was wrong. Representative government
is an awfully round-about way to change a
country, but in some cases it works. Remem-
ber, no system is perfect, or even close to being
so. But you're part of a larger movement when
you join with others and cast a vote. You don't
speak for a lone voice when that lone voice is
combined with others. Cheesy? Maybe. Techni-
cally, that's what happens.
But the bottom line is this; if you're upset
at a situation or an issue and you vote to
change it, congratulations and be proud of
yourself. If you're sitting back complaining
that nothing gets done by politicians and
haven't lifted a finger in the voting process,
then by all means, shut up and get to work.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
This is beginning to get ridiculous!
Since the beginning of the year, those of us
that live in the west end of campus, have gone
from having enough parking spaces to accommo-
date most of the residents that live in the five
residence halls, to barely enough to support just
one of the high rise halls. I know that some of the
spaces were displaced due to the construction of
the new recreation center and were relocated in a
gravel lot on the north side of 5th street. I have no
problem with that.
What I do have a problem with, is the con-
struction of a new bus stop that will take the
parking lot behind Greene Hall. Personally, I
don't have a problem with the bus stop being
located behind Mendenhall and I'm sure that
most West End residents will agree with me.
In a memo sent to all West End residents,
we were told that construction of this new bus
stop would take approximately 60 days. Know-
ing this, wouldn't it have made more sense to
wait until summer break to start construction
and allow us to have the few remaining pre-
cious parking spaces for just one more month?
This would make sense since the West End resi-
dence halls are closed during summer school
anyway.The next time that the administrators
in charge of these things need to take into con-
sideration the students that will be directly af-

has been accusing his political
opponents of using the
Whitewater affair to divert at-
tention away from his health
care reforms. As if his proposal
has any chance of getting
through Congress. The Ameri-
can people have apparently re-

concentrate his reforming zeal
in another area, that of tort re-
form. He should move immedi-
ately to limit the outrageous
awards being granted to plain-
tiffs in civil lawsuits, as well as
make it more difficult to file
frivolous suits which merely tie
up valuable court time.
Of course, he will never do
this. The idea of limiting the
arfhount of damages one can col-
lect in the legal system is natu-
rally unpopular with lawyers,
the occupation and training of
both the President and his wife.
Moreover, during the 1992 cam-
paign, President Clinton re-
ceived $2.6 million dollars from

lars was the largest amount
Clinton received from any busi-
ness group.
The vast majority of Con-
gressmen and women are also
lawyers, and receive huge
amounts of contributions, $12.9
million dollars in the 1992 cam-
paign. As a matter of fact, there is
a sort of protection racket going
on here. At least one lobbyist has
reported that he was told, by a
member of the senior Democratic
leadership, that a tort reform bill

it be killed, be-

The cur-
rent state of the
law, which al-
lows plaintiffs
to collect astronomical sums on
the flimsiest of cases is costing us
all, both in higher prices for goods
and insurance, but also by de-
stroying jobs.
For example, from 1989 to
1992, the National Transportation
Safety Board investigated 203
crashes involving Beechcraft air-
craft. In every single case, the
NTSB ruled the cause of the crash
to be either bad weather, faulty
maintenance, or pilot error of an
air-control mishap. Not once did
the NTSB rule that Beechcraft's
design or manufacture was at
fault. For each and every crash,
however, Beechcraft was sued by
plaintiffs, whose lawyers claimed
that the fault was Beechcraft's.
The average cost to the
manufacturer to defend i tself was
$530,000. This means Beechcraft,
in four years, had to spend al-
most $108 million dollars for
frivolous lawsuits, not to men-
tion the exorbitant insurance rates
they are charged, because of the
high risk that a jury will someday
decide that the company should
pay millions to the family of some-
one who was killed in one of their
planes. These costs have to be
added to the price of the product.
As a result, in 1992, the
American aircraft industry sold
fewer planes than they did in the
years before World War II. Since
1980, more than 18,000 high wage
jobs have been lost in this indus-
try alone. Multiply job losses on
this scale in nearly every Ameri-
can industry, and you can begin
to understand the devastation be-
ing inflicted upon the American
That many of these suits are
wasteful and unnecessary should
be evident. For example, the com-
pany for which I used to work, U-
Haul, once had to pay millions to
a customer because it failed to tell
him not to transport children in
the back of the moving truck.
When this idiot had an accident
and lost a couple of his children,
rather than blaming himself, he
hired a lawyer to blame U-Haul
This is aggravating two of
the worst trends in our national
character. No one wants to accept
any personal responsibility for his
actions. Everything is someone
else's fault.
Also it encourages people
to believe that the way to achieve
is to win a large amount of money
all at once, not to work hard and
save. People now dream of win-
ning the lottery, or using some
ambulance chasing lawyer to win
millions in some lawsuit. Of
course, here in Greenville, the
lawyers have an office right
across the street from the hospi-
tal, so they do not have to chase
them far.
Of course, companies which
are producing defective or danger-
ous products should be respon-
sible for their actions, which in-
clude civil and criminal penalties.
And there is nothing inherently
wrong with wanting to have more
money. But this desire to enrich
oneself a t the expense of a corpora-
tion, because "they can afford it
as I have heard so often, is the
greed which should be criticized,
not the people who are investing
their monev to create new wealth.
To the Editor:
It may be popular opinion in 1994, but
Laura Wright's statement in her political-social
diatribe of March 17 that "there is nothing bio-
logical that causes men to be aggressors and
women to passively receive aggression is
Hillary Clinton is perceived harshly by our
culture as too aggressive, but if Margaret
Thatcher's husband had ever addressed British
Parliament, he too would have been criticized.
The main point I want to make is that male
and female brains have evolved differently, be-
coming more efficient in selected areas. How-
ever, all humans are UNIQUE individuals. The
basic evolutionary forces of seeking sex (for
procreation) and avoiding death (so that we get
more chances for the former) have caused a
general sexual dimorphism in our brains. Our
culture has changed greatly over the last 100
years, but we are still using what evolution took
many eons to select.
Relatively recent culturalsocial changes
reflecting a more diverse role for women repre-
sent but a small speck in evolutionary history.
Women still have brains that evolved to help
them survive as mothers, while most men have
more aggression-producing testosterone cours-
ing through their veins.
Discovery Channel recently ran an excel-
lent series that outlined much of the research
conducted on the sexual dimorphism of the brain
entitled Brain Sex.
Studies have shown that female brains are
generally better for speech and language, and
most people will agree that most women are
capable of greater empathy, with, the nurturing
mothering instinct that has been selected. Men
are bigger, stronger, and more aggressive than
women, but only in general.
Any student of biology or evolution will
agree that my assertion about sexual brain di-
morphism is correct, but culture, societal expec-
tations, and rewardpunishmentoperant con-
ditioning also play a huge role in the behavior of
all humans. These surface factors are deeply
embedded in the underlying foundation of our
collective brain biology.
A women's symposium at ECU in early
April will include some eminent speakers who
will talk about sexual dimorphism, and Laura
Wright should go to get her facts straight.
Indeed, we all seem to care about what
others think, but I like the way Bobby Knight of
Indiana University has responded to frequent
criticism of his ultra-aggressive behavior: I
hope I am buried face down so that all my critics
can kiss my you know what

Non-degree student
To the Editor:
I am responding to Mr. Heatley and Mr.
Boyd's articles that appeared in the March 22
edition of your paper.
Need we forget that just because the build-
ing is called the African-American cultural center
does that necessarily exclude you because you
are white? Now I'm just guessing, and the black
students of this university can correct me if I'm
wrong, but I'm sure that the doorway to the
center will not be shut to the members of other
As a matter of fact, once built I am willing to
bet Mr. Demetrius Carter and all the people in-
volved will welcome you in to see just how nice
the center is.
To me the idea of Shared Visions, a project
vital to university growth, is that all people get a
chance to share the vision. African-American's
are a vital part of this university and providing an
outlet for them to exhibit their culture and to find
support amongst one another is important.
How would you feel that if in every meet-
ing, every class, every residence hall and every
dining area you represented only one of every ten
students. We have isolated African-Americans
enough and if a cultural center will help make
their education more comfortable then so be it.
I feel it is an insult to suggest that we bulldoze
the current center for parking.
For one that claims "I AM NOT A RACIST"
that is one of the most bigoted statements I have
ever heard. Let us forget the current facility is
1.) hidden from public view 2.) looks like some-
thing out of Uncle Tom's Cabin and 3.) is the
most run down center on campus. I think that is
isolation enough.
Please, in the time of Political correctness,
don't hide behind your fears. Go to a ECU
gospel choir or an A.B.L.E. meeting. The Civil
rights amendment of 1963 and 65, Brown vs. the
Board of Education, Universal Sufferage sic
and Affirmative Action were all passed be-
cause they're fair.
An African-American cultural center is
fair too, and that demonstrates our self respect
and worth.

Election Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Having been involved with SGA for
the majority of my years here at ECU, I
can't help but get involved somehow in
this year's executive elections.
To anyone out there that may be think-
ing the election is a popularity contest and
the SGA officers are only figureheads, do
you know that:
1. the SGA executive officers get paid
a monthly stipend as well as tuition for
summer school funded by our student fees
to work and represent us on a campus,
community, and state level?
2. the SGA President has a vote on the
ECU board of Trustees giving that person a
voice in the implementation of new aca-
demic policies (drop-add policy, teacher
evaluations), construction of new facilities
(cultural facilities, recreation center, Joyner
Library expansion, Minges expansion), al-
location of student fees, student life issues
(condoms in dorms, cultural issues), and
even long-range planning for the univer-
3. the SGA President serves on cam-
pus committees such as the Media Board,
Fine Arts Funding Board, Transit Advisory
Board, to name a few, and appoints repre-
sentatives to Faculty Senate Committees?
4. SGA appropriates funds to campus
organizations to cover various expenses
and chooses the members of the Judicial
Branch that acts as our student court sys-
Now that you see the importance of vot-
ing now you must decide how to cast your
vote. Specifically, the position of SGA Presi-
dent is one that needs to be filled by an
experienced, knowledgeable, and motivated
individual who has a genuine interest in the
welfare of the students and the university.
Beware of the candidates that have never
been involved and that make lots of prom-
ises. They may even have some good ideas,
but these candidates lack the experience and
knowledge to actually implement them.
Also beware of the candidates whose
only platform is to discredit their opponents
and to point out that new "Non-SGA" lead-
ership is better. If these candidates truly care
about making changes why has it taken so
many years to finally become involved in an
organization that geves sic them the means
to do so?
The candidates for President are David
Reid who has no previous SGA experience,
Ian Eastman with years of IFC experience
and a year within SGA, and Brynn Thomas
who has been actively involved with SGA
since a Freshman.
Evaluate each of their platforms and
then ask yourself who has consistently tried
to make a difference by being involved and
who has the experience to make their ideas
Courtney Jones
SGA President 1992-93
To the Editor:
During election years we are besieged
with political smear campaigns where each
candidate seems to concentrate more on
criticizing hisher opponent than on telling
the voter's what heshe plans on doing if
elected. The current SGA elections seem to
be following suit. Certain candidates and
their supporters have concentrated on try-
ing to discredit their opponents while not
really telling us what it is they intend to do
While we all realize that parking is a
major problem on our campus, it appears
poor planning on the part of the ECU ad-
ministrators is to blame. Basically, parking
problems are here to stay and the only thing
we can do is to work with the administra-
tion to defray future dilemmas.
One statement made recently was
about the ineffectiveness of the current SGA
officers. I do not see how one could justify
this comment given that the SGA has had
input on every major issue effecting this
campus from student safety and the lack of
funding for the ECU dance team to protect-
ing student rights on issues like tailgating
and grading policies. Keith Dyer, in par-
ticular, is extremely active on many cam-
pus committees and plans to continue serv-
ing ECU in other capacities next year. He
was recently elected Student Representa-
tive to the UNC Board of Governors. This is
the only student position on the Board and
is an honor for not only Keith but ECU as
well. Contragulations Keith.
I believe that on Wedenesday we, as
the ECU voters, need to vote for experi-
enced leaders who have several issues they
want to work on and will continue serving
us with the dedication they've shown in the

Graduate Student
To the Editor:
I have known David and Scarlette for
the two years I've been here, and they have
always been there for me when I needed
them. I know that they will listen and re-
spond to my concerns about this campus,
and I know that they will do the same for
you as well.
David Reid has already been involved
with creating change here on campus as
well as within the community. At 21, David
was elected Chairman of Greenvill Precinct
No. 7, the voting precinct for the ECU cam-
He also managed Nancy Jenkins cam-
paign for mayor, and currently is managing
the campaign to fill his late father's Supe-
rior Court judgeship. As for being involved
on campus, one of his outstanding achieve-
ments was the 1992 Homecoming Parade
over which he was chair. David is a person
who sees a need, fills it and succeeds in
those endeavors.
Scarlette Gardner is a mover and shaker
in her own right. As well as being Secretary
of the Student Homecoming Committee in
1993 and president of Phi Eta Sigma, she is a
member of Gamma Beta Phi and will be in-
ducted into Phi Kappa Phi.
Scarlette has also been on our university
College Bowl team. She is a University
Scholar, a junior in the spring semester of her
second year, and has a 4.0 GPA. I have no
doubts as to her ability to work with and for
people and to manage a vice-president posi-
I strongly encourage you to vote for
these two people on April 6th. I put my
complete trust in their ability to hold these
offices. I know that they will change SGA
and East Carolina University for the better.
Kelly Taylor
To the Editor:
Having served on SGA for at least one
semester, as well as reported on SGA from
time to time, I think I am in a good position
(at least as good a position as current SGA
President Keith Dyer) to endorse candidates
for President and Vice President.
During my tenure on SGA, I observed
the following: a) SGA, in its current form,
doesn't accurately represent the student
body, b) Members of certain campus orga-
nizations, specifically, fraternities, sorori-
ties and the Gospel Choir were over-repre-
sented and c) Members of SGA mostly ap-
propriates large sums of money to them-
selves, and the student body seems not to
SGA will not change overnight. It will
not change with this election, no matter
who is elected. But one thing is for certain,
SGA will never change if the student body
allows the same (current) members to con-
trol the legislature, as they have in the past.
I endorse David Reid for President and
Scarlette Gardner for Vice Presiden t over the
so-called "experienced" candidates, prima-
rily for that reason � they haven't served on
SGA and thus, haven't been part of the prob-
lem. Rather than claim their prior service on
SGA as an asset, the incumbents should offer
us all an apology.
If you care how your student fees are
allocated, if you care who represents you
before the administration, if you care about
ECU, vote for Reid and Gardner tomorrow.
M. Jason Williams
To the Editor:
Brynn Thomas has been involved in
SGA for many years. I guess this is how he
can plaster his name all over the front of The
East Carolinian a week before the elections.
A coincidence? I think not (membership
has it's privileges)
Brynn has SGA experience. I guess he
knows how to get things done. He has his
name all over the paper a week before elec-
tions, he has empty campaign promises, he
relies on others in power to vouch for his
ability, and he runs a great negative cam-
paign against both of his opponents.
I will readily admit Brynn has had a lot
of SGA experience. I feel that if you have
done something for such a long time, your
actions should speak for your ability.
Apparently Brynn needs a little help
from his friends. The SGA pres. and the SGA
vice pres. both wrote wonderful orations
about how great for the job Brynn is. If we
want SGA to continue as it is, than I guess
Brynn is the man for the job.
But if we want a representative SGA
that we deserve, it is time for change. SGA
president should read as more than a line
on a resume. At present, SGA is so ego-
driven that it is amazing that anything is
We as students need a president who
isn't just looking for advancement, for
whom winning the election is the end of the
road. Instead we need a person who will
use the SGA presidency as a tool and not a
The SGA holds great power. Instead of
sitting back and patting themselves on the
back (which the current SGA has grown
quite accustomed to), we need to elect some-
one who is willing to give of himself self-
lessly, and who doesn't seek praise for ev-
erything he does.

To the Editor:
Brynn Thomas, currently the SGA
Speaker, has been a major contributor to the
SGA during his 3 years of service. He has
chaired and served on the Appropriations
and Procedures committees. His appointment
as Speaker is testament to the effort and the
results he has attained.
Brynn's highly motivated results ori-
ented attitude and campus involvement make
him an ideal ECU Student Body President.
He developed the Campus Safety Act which
was enacted in the fall semester. Brynn is
currently working with university officials
designing the proposed Text Book Rental
System and plans to work for the return of
the printed FCU yearbook.
Sheila Boswell, currently the Chair of
Screenings and Appointments Committee,
has made great efforts to increase participa-
tion in the SGA. She has also served on the
Student Welfare Committee. She is an ECU
Ambassador and was last years Chair of the
Homecoming Half-time Committee. Sheila
isTenrolted in the Education Department and
a NC Teaching Fellow.
She is currently working with follow
sic SGA representative for realistic solu-
tions to the university parking problem (in-
cluding proposals for Handicapped spaces),
student body unity concerns, and telephone
course registration. Sheila's team spirit and 3
years of SGA service make her a highly quali-
fied SGA Vice President.
Mike Carnes is an active member of the
SGA also with 3 years of SGA experience.
He was Vice President of the Phi Kappa
Alpha fraternity at ECU and has coordi-
nated the Walk to Wilmington that the
"PIKA's" organize yearly.
Mike has served on the Appropria-
tions Committee, was secretar of the Rules
and Judiciary Committee, and has served
as SGA Speaker. He has served on the Fine
Arts Funding Board, SGA Transportation
Board, and sits-in for executive commitee
members at meeting that their schedules
will not permit them to attend. His sea-
soned student government background and
community service make him a strong ex-
ecutive committee member and SGA Trea-
surer, j
He is actively working to increase the
amount of the SGA Student Emergency
Fund, toward a printed year book, and for
monthly payment of tuition.
Doug Spears, a candidate for SGA Sec-
retary, is yet another active member of the
SGA seeking to served the student body.
He has been a contributing member of the
Student Welfare Committee and as secre-
tary of the Appropriations Committee.
Doug is also envolved sic in several com-
munity activities.
All the above candidates are experi-
enced SGA members who wish to have a
greater voice for the students of ECU.
Pete Donahue
Graduate Student
To the Editor:
As current Student Government Trea-
surer I have had the opportunity to work
with many campus leaders. I have learned to
repect certain individuals who sacrifice their
time and efforts in service to the school and
fellow students.
This election ballot is offering many
names for all the various positions. It is very
disturbing to me to see the names of people
who have never set foot into any SGA meet-
ings, which are open to anybody. Certain
Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates
have not utilized this opportunity to become
involved or even take notice as to how SGA
works. Imagine any group anywhere that
would elect a President or Vice-President
that have never been involved with the
orgainzation before. Certain individuals have
never taken part in anythin SGA has done.
Do you even know, Mr. Reid, Mr. Munley
or Ms. Gardner, where the meetings are
The obvious choice for the President,
Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary are
Brynn Thomas, Sheila Boswell, Michael
Carnes and Doug Spears respectively, these
people are dedicated to you.
When you take out you Student I.D. to
vote on April 6th, think about one thing:
Do you want someone on SGA who has
proven their dedication and character, re-
member actions speak louder than prom-
ises, or do you want someone in who has no
clue on what is going on and is only doing
it to benefit themselves.
If you choose the first of these two
then make it a reality vote Brynn Thomas,
Sheila Boswell, Michael Carnes and Doug
Spears as you 94-95 executive members. .

Bennett, a 45-year veteran
singer, has drawn enthusiastic au-
diences all this time, but recently, he
became a hot commodity with the
slacker crowd due to appearances
on "The Simpsons" and last year's
MTV video awards show. But, what
could have been a spurt of popular-
ity comparable to the Brady Bunch
or Partridge Family has become full-
fledged appreciation for a singer
with high standards for both the
music he sings and his approach to
them. Thursday's performance
showcased the reasons why he's
again packing houses.
The stage was sparse�an open
piano, stand-up bass and a drum

Ashley Bryan, a unique
literary figure, is coming to
Greenville for the East Caro-
lina Children's LiteratureCon-
ference on April 8.
Bryan tells African tales
designed for children's read-
ing. He travels all over the
world speaking to children
from many different nations.
Recently, he went to Fiji and
was so overwhelmed by how
the children appreciated his
work that now he feels obli-
gated to send books to chil-
dren of the country.
Dr. Sandra Tawake, ECU
English professor, said, "His
work is remarkable. It's really
interesting, and it's relatable
to children. His writing is in-
credibly easy to understand,
and he's such a kind man
Bryan, a native New
Yorker, teaches painting and
drawing at Dartmouth Col-
lege. Hislatestrelease, TfieStory
of Lightning and Thunder, was
issued by an Atheneum pub-
lisher. Other books such as
What a Morning and Walk To-
gether Children illustrate Black
American spirituals.
Bryan lives on a small is-
land off the coast of Maine. He
paintslandscapesof the island
when he isn't working on a
book project.
He said that while he was
at Cooper Union Art School,
he developed an interest for
African stories. Shortly after
that, he started writing tales
associated with art found in
museumsand libraries in New
York. i hi ii man
Bryan will participate at
the ECU event as the Nellvina
Duncan Eutsler Lecturer. In
addition to Bryan, three other
children's literature specialists
will be featured. Ann Sullivan

What Colour Our Flag
As we move into the '90s, more
musical genres get mixed together
and Galliano is at the cutting edge of
thismutatingphenomenon with their
new release, What Colour Our Flag. In
the summer of 1988, group founder
Robert Gallagher (Red Zinger) took
his radio persona into the recording
studioand made a remix that was the
birth of the Acid Jazz label. His career
as a solo performer was short-lived
andGallianotheprojert soon arrived.
Spry on percussion and Bro
Constantine on vocals were the next
two members to join in.
Out of their love for playing live
they formed a solid touring band.
The rhythm was supplied by the duo
of Crispin "The Pump" Taylor on
drums and Ernie "Boogie Back"
McKone on bass. The keyboard
sty lings of Mick Talbot, the vocals of
Valerie Etienne, the guitar of Mark
Vandergucht and the stage antics of
the "vibecontroller" Snafeand Uncle

spectacle for the eyes and ears.

Gilbert Grape provides good elements
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
I often cringe upon entering any
artistic aspirations.QnarecentSatur-
day afternoon I shared a theater of
such an artistic film, What'sEatingGil-
bert Grape?, with six other patrons.
Wliat s EatingGilbert Grape? lacks
the commercial appeal necessary to
be a hit. The only major stars are
Johnny Depp and Juliette Lewis and
neither of them is really a household
name. Plus, the typical crowd for a
Johnny Depp film would be teenag-
ers and teenagers are certainlynot the
target audience for Wliat's Eating Gil-
bert Grape?
Grape, thecharacterplayed with
restrained charm by Depp, lives in
Iowa with his family. His younger
brother Amie (Leonardo DiCaprio)
has a disease that keeps his mental
facilities on a four-year-old's level.
Gilbert's mother (DarleneGates) has
not left the house since her husband
killed himself seven years earlier. She
is morbidly obese and still in a mild
state of depression.
Gilbert helps support the family
by working at Lamson's Groceries.
He also takes care of Amie almost
single-handedly. Gilbert delivers gro-
ceries to Betty Carver (Mary
Steenburgen) with whom he a lso car-
ries on an elicit affair. Gilbert's rela-
tionship with Betty epitomizes his
dealings with the people in his life�
he tries so hard to keep everyone else
happy that he rarely thinks about
what he wants from life.
Gilbert meets Becky (Juliette
Lewis) during the course of the film
and only slowly do the two become
close, defying the stereotypical love
evinced by Hollywood; their rela-
tionshipdevelops gradually and fully.
When Becky has to leave, near the
end of the film, the pain both she and
Gilbert feel is palpable.

(AVI) is the company producing
the shows. It travels from city to
city with their productions and
are America's leading special ef-
fects and presentation company.
Founded in 1978, it is the corpo-
rate entity behind the creation of
laser light shows in 3-D.
For the 3-D effect in all of the
shows, AVI uses ChromaDepth,
which was developed and manu-
factured by Chroma tek Inc. of New
York. ChromaDepth uses holo-
graphic lenses to separate an image
according to the chromatic scale. In
this process, reds normally appear
closest to the observer, while blues
are in the extreme distance. The
other colors fall between these two
according to the chromatic value.
With the aid of the special 3-D
glasses, one hour of pulsating, gy-
rating graphics look as if they are
hovering in mid-air, ricocheting off
the giant tilted dome screen.
In laser operations, a glass
tube is filled with gas. Krypton
and argon are most common, but
sometimes helium or even neon
maybe used. Thechain reactions
between the gas in the rube and
other particles cause the energy
level to rise and release in the
form of photons, visible as light.
Mixed gases are used for the dif-
ferent colors of the spectrum. The
result is an exciting form of en-
tertainment that is becoming
popular nationwide.
The cost for the laser shows
at the Discovery Place are $7 for
adults,agesl3-59;$6 for students,
ages 6-12 and senior citizens, ages
60; and $3 for children under
five. For more information or to

nir. TheCards won 6-4, butplayed
to a half-filled stadium, because
of the actions of the always-com-
passionate Reds owner Marge
Schott. She became incensed
when no one would participate
in Sunday's pre-game parade,
because of Easter. Schott didn't
even come to the game Sunday,
insisting Monday would be the
"real" opening day. Go figure.
There's a new man in charge
of the Dallas Cowboys, and it's
Jerry Jones. To sum the Dallas
situation up, I'll combine two old
cliches: The town wasn't big
enough for both of them, and the
player with the most money wins.
So, Jimmy Johnson is unem-
ployed. It was that simple. After
Jones and Johnson divorced last
week after a long and rocky rela-
tionship, Jones made sure he
landed a coach who knew who
was really in charge of the team.
So, he dipped back into the good-
olboy pool and fished out "Mr.
Wishbone" Barry Switzer, who
hasn't coached since resigning
under fire from Oklahoma. It's
obvious that Jerry knows money,
and Jimmy and Barry know
coaching, otherwise none of them
would have ever gotten where
they were. Without, Johnson (to
the chagrin of the U. of Miami
members of the 'Boys) there will
be some changes made. How-
ever, Dallas isstill a talented team,
and if everyone does their job, the
program will be running
smoothly again by August.

of back injuries. He has homered
just five times in each of the previ-

Strawberry had enjoyed a pro-

were reports linking him to IRS tax

junior infielder Eric Klaus in the
bottom of the 10th to edge the East

Sophomore pinch-hitter Ed

ninth with a single and Klaus was
inserted as a pinch runner for
Tober. With two outs and a 2-2
count, sophomore first baseman
Sean Casey belted his 10th home
run of the season and tied the
game at 6-6.
Junior third baseman Sean
Ryan, celebrating his 21st birth-
day, led off the bottom of the
10th with a single. With one out,
freshman catcher Jamie Cappetta
doubled Ryan to third. Follow-
ing an intentional walk, Klaus

with the winning run. It was the
first collegiate hit for Klaus.

player's explanation. He planned
to meet with Strawberry today.
There was not too much excite-

Picked to finish third in the

was especially satisfying because
it followed first-round NCAA

All of the traditional pag-

Monday in Cincinnati when the
Cardinals again played the Reds.
The game between St. Louis

new era of realignment. Those
teams are now in the NL Central.
The White Sox won the AL
West last season and have moved
into the AL Central. They took on
the Blue Jays, trying to become the
first team since the 1972-73-740ak-
land A's to win three straight titles.
To reach the postseason, all they'll
need is the league's top second-
place finish to win the wild card.

While the president is pitch-

Scott Radinsky, who has

without closer Duane Ward, who

Gant and George Bell are

Arizona (29-6) won its first
eight games this season before

"All I'm hoping is that some-

Even if Richardson's harangue
was heartfelt and undertaken with
an eye toward redressing
longstanding grievances, it was still
too long. And if it was nothing more
than a "we-get-no-respect" moti-
vational ploy for the Arkansas kids
on the podium alongside him, it
was inexcusable.
Either way, this kind of thing

keeping score at home, it's now
seven of the last nine, and even
more impressive, four of the last
five title games.
Run by a coach already re-
garded by many as the best (and
most intelligent) of his time, its bas-
ketball program is theenvy of nearly
everyone. An expensive, privately
run university, Duke boasts tradi-
tion, money, guaranteed exposure,
fanatical supporters, a clean NCAA
slate, high graduation rates and a
first-classcampus. Like Notre Dame
in football, those all add up to a
decided advantage in signing the
nation's best and brightest high
school prospects.
And whenever the national
championship comes down to Duke
vs. a state school with none of those
advantages and a deep, mostly black
roster � like UNLV's Runnin'
Rebels or Arkansas' helter-skelter
Hogs�it's inevitably portrayed as
"intelligence" vs. "athleticism
Understandably, Duke coach
Mike Krzyzewski was hardly
thrilled to be asked his opinion �
one more time � about what was
wrong with that picture.

weeks ago wouldn't have called us

lighten things up.

seven-tenths of a second remain-
ing. Lady Tarheel coach Sylvia
Hatchell called a timeout to set up
one final play.
The gutsy call was for a play in
which Charlotte Smith, who was
ejected during UNC'ssecond round
ODU game for fighting, started by
the left baseline, strolled through
the paint and sank an 3-point bas-
ket from the rightside for the win. It
worked perfectly, and Smi th scored
unguarded, giving the Lady
Tarheels a buzzer-beating 60-59 vic-
tory. It ended a 25-game winning
streak for the Lady Techsters, a feat
in itself.
There's a new rule I'd like to see
instated by the NCAA hoops com-
mittee. Simply put, if a player is
injured and has to leave the game
on whatis ruled tobean intentional
foul, the player who committed the
foul must also exit the game until
the injured player can return. Be-
fore you say this could lead to loath-
some coaching strategies, would
Dean Smith have kept Derrick
Phelps ou t of the BC game unless he
had to?
However, this could be a way
for an opponent's star player be
benched as well, so there will have
to be a neutral doctor present who
will examine the injured players
and classify them as fit to return to

on the championship game. The 6-
foot junior forward scored 19 of her
20 points in the second half. She also
set a championship game record by
grabbing 23 rebounds and was
named the oustanding player of the
Final Four.
Her efforts helped North Caro-
lina (33-2) finish the season with its
14th consecutive victory and com-
plete a turnaround from a last-place
finish in the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence three years ago.

loss was his fault because he failed
to assign someone to guard

Smith for the winning shot.
"I wish we could have won
Barmore said, "but I'll tell you what.

The Lady Techsters held North
Carolina to 34.4 percent field-goal
shooting, the lowest ever by a win-
ning team in the championship
game, and they forced the Tar Heels
into 21 turnovers.
There were 10 ties and three
lead changes before Thomas put
Louisiana Tech up 59-57 on a 19-
foot jumper from the right wing
with 15 seconds left.
North Carolina's Tonya
Sampson missed badly on a lean-
ing shot from the free-throw line
with five seconds to go. The Tar
Heels' Marion Jones and Louisiana
Tech's Kendra Neal battled for the
rebound until a joint possession was
declared with seven-tenths of a sec-
ond remaining.
North Carolina, which was
awarded the ball on the alternating
possession rule, called a timeout to
set up a play.
Hatchell wanted Lawrence,
who was on the baseline just to the
left of the basket, to lob a pass down
low into the lane to 6-foot-5 Sylvia
Crawley. When Lawrence saw
Crawley was covered, she called
another timeout.
On the second try, Lawrence
looked at Sampson flashing across
the line, but she was covered. So she
fired a strike to Smith, who was
wide open on the right wing after
working around a screen by

ball, it would have to go up Smith

praying the whole time. And then it

While the Tar Heels staged a
wild celebration, the Lady
Techsters were left to wonder about
what could have been.
Barmore said he initially
wanted to guard Lawrence on the
inbounds pass, but decided against
it to get another defender in the
lane to help cover Crawley.
"I'll take full responsibility for
that shot and that loss he said.
"We definitely should have had
somebody on the ball
Hatchell had no such second
thoughts about using Smith as a 3-
point option, even though she
made just 6 of 21 from long range

Three ways to beat
the high cost of college.
1. The Montgomery Cl Bill
2. Student loan repayment
3. Part-time income
The Army Reserve Alternate Training Program is a smart way to pay for
First, if you qualify, the Montgomery Gl Bill can provide you with up to
$0,840 for current college expenses or approved votech training.
Second, if you have�or obtain�a qualified student loan not in default,
you mayget it paid offal the rate of 15 poryear or S500, whichever is greater,
up to a maximum of $10,000. Selected military skillscan double that maximum
Third, you can earn part-time money in college, and here's how it works:
One summer you take Basic Training, and the next summer you receive skill
training at an Army school. You'll earn over $1,500 for Basic and even more for
skill training. Then you'll attend monthly meetings at an Army Reserve unit
near your college, usually one weekend a month plus two weeks a year. You'll
be paid overs 10) a weekend to start. It's worth thinking about. Give us a call:
