It's over! Eastman, Boswell win SGA run-off
SGA Run-Off Election

Is this what they mean by stuffing the ballot box? Actually, in a run-off election not marred by the controversy
that surrounded the original election, a fair number of students turned out to vote.
And the winners are
Eastman and Sheila Boswell.
After two weeks of hard-
fought campaigning , the races for
SGA president ar.d vice president
have finally come to an end. In the
run-off for president, Eastman de-
feated opponent Brvnn Thomas, 53.0
percent to 46.4 percent.
Thomas' running mate,
Boswell, defeated Eastman's run-
ning mate Chris Munley, 53.2 per-
cent to 45.5 percent.
"Wow, I can't believe it
Eastman said. "And I'm glad it's
Eastman said he intends to
follow through with the nine points
of his platform, particularly the for-
mation of a graduate student um-
"I will bring the bill to form
such an organization in front of the
Board of Trustees,becauseit'ssome-
thing I strongly believe in Eastman
The East Carolinian notified
Thomas of the defeat.
"I was kind of mad because
all of our stuff (campaign posters)
got torn down thenightbefore,but
there was a pretty good turnout
According to Elections Chair
Dale Emery, the turnout of 1,104
voters was excellent for a run-off
"I think things ran very
smoothly this time around Em-
ery said. "There was great team-
work with everyone involved
After the polls closed at 8:00
p.m Thomas and Boswell left the
sight to await the vote count.
Eastman remained with the elec-
tions chair and members of the
media. Munlevwasnotified shortly
after the decision was announced.
When asked what his plans
for the future included, Munley
expressed a strong interest in con-
tinuing to work with the SGA.
"I will definitely be getting
involved in trying to make SGA a
more pro-active organization
Munlev said. "I would like to con-

Meal cards, student IDs soon to be combined
8y Jeb Brookshire
ECU has a very promising
future ahead. Plans include an
updated, sophisticated library
and a one of a kind student rec-
reation center. ECU will also
step up to a one-card student
The new system is still in
the works as committees work
to find out the greatest needs
that the new cards will address.
"Right now, students use
two cards; one for dining and a
bookstore account, and the other
for student activities, "said Frank
Salamon, director of Dining Ser-
vices. "We want to make life sim-
pler for everyone by combining
the cards into one
Uses for the two cards will
be combined into one card. For
example, the new system will
allow a key-less entry system for
the dorms. Students will be able
to vote, check-out books, obtain
tickets to athletic events, and buy
meals all with the convenience
of one card.
The changes are scheduled
to be completed by the spring
semester in 1996.
"The process of converting
our current system to the new
one is a lengthy one Salamon
The school's mainframe
will have to be changed to handle
the abilities of the new system.
The cards will all work on a
magnetic stripe principle simi-
lar to the ones on credit cards.
The staff will also have to be
trained on how to use the sys-
tem as well as the technology
used to process the cards.
The biggest delay is coming
from the fact that there are no
available phone lines for the sys-
tem to use. Also, any department
that currently uses one of the
cards for anything will have to
allocate money for card readers.
The question that most
people have regarding the new
system is: "What if I lose my card
and someone then has access to
everything that I do There is a
high degree of security with these
new cards. Just like now, if a stu-
dent loses their meal card, one
put a block on that card, making
it invalid. This will allow only
students with up-to-date, valid
IDs to partake of the services pro-
vided by ECU.
The goal of the system and
its capabilities were best ex-
pressed by Salamon when he
said, "What we are trying to do is

Nobody can define art.
All people have different
ideas about what is and what
isn't art. And when pieces of
art get displayed in public
there is always some ques-
tion over whether or not it is
art and should be displayed.
This was the case of five
ECU art students who tried to
present their sculpture to the
public by placing it outside.
After about one and half days,
their piece of art became the

ABLE meets with Public Safety
0 0 000000000000
By Tammy Zion
Last week's silent protest in
front of ECU'S Public Safety build-
ing by members of Aliied Blacks
for Leadership and Equality
(ABLE) may have been a similar
plea as the one heard almost 30
According to the account
written in East Carolina University,
the Formative Years by Dr. Mary Jo
Jackson Bratton, professor of his-
tory at ECU, in 1968 a group of 67
African American students pre-
sented a petition to President Leo
Jenkins calling for an immediate
improvement in racial practices.
Similarly, members of ABLE
marched in front of Public Safety
last week with a list of grievances
asking the department to alter the
way African Americans are treated.
In response, a meeting was sched-
Monday, at 5 p.m approxi-
mately 10 ABLE representatives
and students sat down with Teresa
Crocker, director of Public Safety,
in the basement of Mendenhall to
discuss group concerns and pos-
sible solutions to the proposed
The meeting began when
Crocker briefly introduced herself,
and then opened the discussion to
those present. The questions and
answers lasted for over an hour
and a half, ending with the goal of
establishing a potential public
safety employment student review
In her introduction, Crocker
explained that she came to ECU
last November and was a graduate
of N.C. State. She went on to say
tha t she is currently going to school
at N.C. Central for a Master's de-
gree in criminal justice.
"I wan ted a different perspec-
tive of criminal justice and felt that
I could get that at a predominantly
black school Crocker said.
Crocker also said that she
wants ECU's public safety serviceto
become one of the best programs "
in the country. She said that since �
coming to ECU, 10 employees are g
no longer with public safety, and
this signifies a definite time of "
change for the department. t
Demetrius Carter, spokesper-
son for ABLE, asked Crocker if she-
felt that a problem exists between i
African Americans on campus and t
Public Safety. Crocker said that
there may have been a problem,
but predicted a different future. (
She said that no one deserves pref-
erential treatment, but if there are
problems she should be informed
"I ha ven't had students come
to my office and complain that they
have been treated differently
This comment sparked reac-
tions that some students may not
know where to go when instances
occur. Many students may not feel
comfortable addressing the direc-
tor of public safety.
"If there 'sa problem withone
of my officers, I have a right to
know that Crocker said.
One of the proposed griev-
ances on the list given to Crocker
last week was the need for public
safety to employ African Ameri-
can officers in proportion to the
number of African American stu-
dents on campus.
When the subject was ad-
dressed, Crocker responded that
20 percent of public safety posi-
tions were filled by African Ameri-
cans, which outnumbers her inf or-
cent of ECU students are African
American. She also said that she is
hoping to fill half of the current ten
openings with minorities.
One student said it did not
matter if public safety employed
solely Caucasians, because the at-
titudes of some of the officers
needed "serious alterations Stu-

The only difference between the
sculpture and a real clothesline
vas that the sculpture was four
limes as big as a normal clothes-
line. "The jeans that hung on the
clothesline were about 11 feet
long Williams said.
The project was originally
designed to be site specific, and
the site they picked to hang their
sculpture up on the balconies be-
tween Fleming and Cotten dorms.
One of the aspects of their project
jvas to secure the correct permis-
sion to hang their piece. How-
ever, when the five students
started to hang their piece on
Monday, April 11, they ran into
some problems. According to
yVilliams, they were told "very
Explicitly" by the University
Housing Director Emmanuele
Amaro that they were not allowed
to hang it there. Williams notes,
they were under the impression
that they had the permission.
"As far as we knew, we had
gone through sources and gotten
permission Crabill said.
However, according to
Amaro, the five students did not
get the correct authorization.
"They did not have any permis-
sion Amaro said. "They didn't
even go through the Dean of Stu-
dents or my office .
According to Crabill, Amaro
didn't even give them time to ex-
plain and threatened to cut the
sculpture down. "He said that if
he let us hang it up without spe-
cial reason, then at any point, any-
one could hang a banner out of
their window Crabill said.
Williams said she under-
stood he was just doing his job,
but she feels that he treated them
like children. "He threatened to
vandalize our sculpture Will-
Williams points out that
their sculpture is not a banner. "I
don't think what we worked so
many hours on should be com-
pared to an old sheet with spray
paint on it that says, rush what-
ever Williams said.
"To us it's like someone
else's research paper Crabill
After the initial removal, the
five students secured permission
to put up their sculpture in front
of the between the art building
and Fifth Street. Williams notes
however, that the Dean of the Art
School, Michael Dorsey, had to
spend a lot of time meeting with
groundskeepers to get permission
for the five students to hang their
" He spent a lot of his time in
meetings fighting to keep the
sculpture up Williams said. Ap-
parently, Chancellor Eakin also ex-
pressed support for-the students
to hang up their sculpture.
After a day and a half of
hanging in front of the art build-
ing, the sculpture started to get
vandalized. According to Will-
iams, first the bra was cut off at the
straps and stolen. After that the
bikini, boxers, and T-shirt were
stolen and the dress was ruined.

vandalism Crabill said. The van-
dalism was not reported to ECU
Public Safety. "We just assumed
that that would be something we
couldn't recover Williams said.
The group expressed anger
over the vandalism because, now
the public won't be able to see
what thev wanted to share.
"To us, it was something
that we wanted to share for
other people to view and then
thoseare the people that didn't
consider the time and effort
that we put in something like

like so many people were en-

dents felt that officers would stop
them for no reason, or not give a
reason, and that was not fair.
Crocker agreed and said that in-
forming suspects of police action
was recommended, but could not
become policy because prior noti-
fication is not a good idea in all
"It's very difficult to hire
young police officers Crocker
said. "Every time they see some-
one on TV they think its a drama,
that you have to pull your weapon
and that's not true

"In wildness is the preservation of the world" j
Friday is Earth Day. It is a day you either
feel impassioned about, or one that seems to be
the most worthless holiday in existence. Need-
less to say, I view Earth Day as not only an
important observation, but one that encour-
ages people to remain faithful to part of their
con tract with wha fever higher power to which
they happen to answer.
Twenty-four years ago, Earth Day began
in a decade that was hell-bent on getting past
and recovering from the Vietnam experience.
It was before the monty-grubbing span of the
'80s, and after the free love excesses of the Age
of Aquarius. In other words, we had a lot to
So along comes a celebration of Mother
Earth and the beginning of a movement that
owed many of its traits to American Indian
tradition and minimalist thinking. We real-
ized that we needed to change or, in not so
many years, the environment could face ulti-
mate, irreparable destruction. In many ways,
Countless acres of precious rainforests all
over the globe have disappeared, due to mass-
grazing. The air was indelibily polluted by
factories, automobiles, industrial chemicals
and forest-reduction. The water was abused in
much the same fashion. Thanks to illegal in-
dustrial dumping and the increase of algae,
our water systems became clogged and unus-
able. We were destroying the ground we
walked on, the air we breathed and the water
we drink. In a roundabout way (to be totally
existential), we were destroying ourselves.
Earth Day certainly didn't solve these prob-
lems, but it brought about the realization that
change needed to occur. Enthusiasm to make a
change stimulated environmental legislation�
the most important of which was the National
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). Sim-
ply put, this law requires the federal govern-
ment to think before they act. A huge step for
humankind, so to speak.
The Clean Air Act of 1970 and the Clean
Water Act of 1972 were doubly significant, since
they established national standards for air and
water and improved the quality of both. Since
then, many people have seen nature in a differ-
ent light and have taken steps toward a cleaner
planet. National parks saw an increase in visi-
tors, the number of environmental periodicals
reached an all-time high, and environmental
education gained interest.
The only problem with Earth Day is that
many people forget to remember the environ-
ment after the observance day is over. Keep in
mind what is now an old adage: Rethink, reuse,
And along a similar strain (in some alter-
nate universe, maybe), Friday is the observance
of Alexander Kerensky's birthday. Kerensky
was the first democratic president of Russia, in
power between the reign of Nicholas II and
Lenin's Communist movement. Although his
time in office was short-lived, it is still a signifi-
cant contribution in the now-democratic coun-
try. So, in his honor, toast Aleksei with a shot of
Stolichnaya and whoop it up in celebration of

I sat down with last
Thursday's edition of The East
Carolinian and started to read an
article on the front page about
�������i studies confer-
ence that took
place at ECU
of the speakers
at the annual
meeting of the
(SEWSA), discussed the debate
over whether or not prostitu-
tion serves to oppress women.
Some feminists claim that
prostitution and similar lines of
"sex work such as stripping,
are a woman's choice and
women benefit monetarily from
them. Robinson, however ar-
gued that these sources of in-
come are exploitive and result
in sexual subjectivity.
I was reading along, think-
ing about all of the times I've
heard women say things like,
"Strippers make killer money.
These stupid guys come in and
drool and hand out their money
like idiots while the women get
rich I think that no matter how
much money the women make,
there's always the owner of the
club who's making the real
money � and he's most likely a
So, it doesn't really further
the cause of women to dance in
the nude or to act as escorts,
etc.(there's that etc. again). It
serves the cause of the people
who own the clubs, the people
who run the "escort services
For women to buy into the
idea that by taking money for
these services they somehow
beat the system, is untrue. By
participating in the exchange of
goods for currency, they actu-
ally reinforce a system where
women's bodies are merchan-
But I'm not trying to say
that men should be held entirely
responsible. They're the ones
who benefit so why should we
expect them to change? And, as
a friend of mine said, women
are allowed to make stupid
choices if they want to. The op-
portunities are wide open if you
want to take off your clothes for
As I continued to read and
turned the pages, my senses
were assaulted by advertise-
ments for clubs where "danc-
ers" are wanted and classifieds
where female escorts can make
so-called "big bucks Hope-
fully, although I doubt it, these
ads signify that there is a short-
age of women who are willing
to sell themselves.
More likely, I'm afraid,
these ads appear in a college
newspaper because college
women are likely to respond to
them. It's really kind of ironic.
Sure, we can pay our tuition with
the money that we make from
such endeavors, but participat-
ing in such lines of work sort of
defeats the purpose of getting
an education in the first place.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am writing to express my thoughts of this
whole Kurt Cobain situation.
When I first heard of Cobain's suicide, my
thoughts were that it was incredibly ignorant for
anyone to feel any remorse or compassion for this
self-absorbed and odious character who had been
bitching and whining his way through the musi-
cal scene for the past few years.
I was always put off by Cobain's arrogant
comments in interviews and his obnoxious, ego-
centric attitude toward other musicians such as
Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready, whom I felt
were far superior musically (and still do).
At the time of his death I held the position
that his passing was just another self-made drama
that Cobain wished to heap upon us.
But after much thought and reflection, my
position has changed. I remember how I felt on
August 27, 1990; when I learned that my musical
hero and vicarious guide, Stevie Ray Vaughn,
had been tragically killed in a helicopter accident.
My grief was palpable and overwhelming.
Though I had never known the man person-
ally, my loss and pain were truly real. It stands to
reason that some Nirvana fans were equally struck
by the loss of Kurt Cobain. For them my heart
sincerely empathizes and grieves.
Yet, still, the situations are not the same,
Cobain took his own life, whereas Stevie died
involuntarily. Stevie Ray had his own battles
with addiction and depression, but in the last two
years of his life had found peace from the de-
mons that haunted him. I dare to think that
Cobain could have discovered the same tran-
quility had he just found a brief glimmer of
light and hope in the dark periods of his final
year. His young daughter will have to grow up
knowing that her love was not enough to buoy
her father in his bleakest hours.
Author William Styron, in his brilliant
book on depression, Darkness Visible, said that
the pain of severe depression is quite un-
imaginable to those who have not suffered it,
and it kills in many instances because its an-
guish can no longer be borne
I realize now that Cobain's pain was obvi-
ously tremendous and he exercised what he
thought was his only remaining option.
As I said, my heart goes out to those who
sincerely mourn the loss of Kurt Cobain. But his
death is not a verdict, nor is it a thing to be
immortalized, but an act of a desperate man; an
act be pitied.
Stevie Ray Vaughn's death came during the
happiest, most triumphant days of his life. Kurt
Cobain died under a cloud of misery and pain
and self-loathing that none of us will ever truly
understand. We shouldn't judge Cobain's final
action or imitate it, but instead, hope that he has
now found the peace that eluded him in life.

To the Editor:
It took me a while to decide whether or not
to write this letter because I am usually a soft-
spoken person who waits for someone else to
speak up. I finally decided that I could not let Mr.
Dyer's remarks go unnoticed.
Anyone who listened to the SGA presiden-
tial debate knows that it was very intense almost
to the point of name-calling. I listened intently
trying to get a feel for each candidates position on
issues facing the ECU campus. I felt that each
candidate did their best to answer the questions
of the callers and of the hostess.
However, when Mr. Dyer called he really
upset me and the other people around me listen-
ing to the debate.
For those who didn't listen to the debate,
Mr. Dyer attacked Ian Eastman right from the
start. This did not bother me, because I feel that a
candidate for the presidency ought to be able to
handle any questions whether they are aimed
directly at himher or not.
It was just one simple issue that Mr. Eastman
asked Mr. Dyer about, which was the student
tuition payment program. Mr. Eastman explained
that when he tried to propose this program it was
brought to his attention that, to his astonishment,
one had already existed for the past two years.
Mr. Dyer's reason for the SGA not bringing
this to the attention of the student body is
because, and I quote we don't want the
middle class students of ECU to abuse this
What I am a middle class student and
when I told my parents, who by the way aren't
paying for my schooling, they were pissed off!
I can't believe Mr. Dyer, who supposedly rep-
resents all the students of ECU, could have
been elected. If my parents would have known
about this payment policy I would not have to
work sixty hours a week just to make ends
meet. I would be able to concentrate on school
With tuition and fees increasing each year
my parents can only afford to put clothes on
my back and an occasional $20 check in the
mail. (When a good month comes along) Grant
it they aren't poor but anyone who pays out of
state tuition will agree that it can put a strain on
any middle class family.
Without rambling on, I just want the
middle class students of ECU to know how Mr.
Dyer feels about them and that he is backing
Mr. Brynn Thomas who, in all probability, feels
the same way about this SGA policy.
To the Editor
As my third year at East Carolina comes to a close,
I am becoming disgusted with people advocating pro-
gun issues who (in all probability) have no first-hand
knowledge of the violence guns are capable of commit-
Well, gather round 'cause here's something they
won't teach you in an English class. About five years ago,
Michael Charles Hayes ("not guilty by reason of insan-
ity") went on a shooting spree in Winston-Salem, N.C.
and killed four people, wounding five others (myself
Later,itwas revealed thatjustthreedaysbefore the
incident, Mr. Hayes had bought two new guns, one of
which was a .22 rifle used in most of the shootings.
Having suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, I have
received some insight into the problems of guns and
Now chew on this. In 1988, handguns killed seven
people in Great Britain, 19 in Sweden, 53 in Switzerland,
25 in Israel, 13 in Australia, eight in Canada and 8,915 in
the good 'ole U.S. of A. God bless America.
Itdoesn'ttakeacoUegeeducation to realize people
without first-hand knowledge of this kind of violence
cannot appreciate the need for something so simple
asa 10-day waiting period on purchase ofhandguns.
Sure, Michael Hayes was an "honest citizen" claim-
ing his right to bear arms, but did he actually need
those guns "right now? Perhaps if it was necessary
to wait the 10-day waiting period he could have
solved his internal problems without needless vio-
lence. Of course, this is not a solution, merely a
In closing, government is not necessarily trying
to implement centralized control over our lives. It is
merely attempting toexercisesomecontrolover guns
in the streets the only feasible way it knows how at
this point. People should realize owning a gun is not
a solution to social and political unrest. Instead, we
should take an active stance in our government by
voting, lobbying, writing to your senator and "ques-
tioning authority The pen is mightier than the

Andy Barkett and Rob Winkler as
the Pack rolled to a 9-3 win over in-
state rival ECU.
NCSU scored five times in the
first inning. Clougherty started the
scoring with his fifth home run of
the season, scoring Larry Edens
ahead of him. Later in the inning,
Andy Barkett had a run-scoring
single and Ryan Ferby added a
double, scoring two more Pack
runs. State also added a single run
in the second on a Clougherty
The Pirates finally broke
through Pack starter Matt Roupe
for a run in the fifth inning on an
RBI double from Chad Puckett to
cut the lead to 6-1.
Winkler (2) and Barkett (6) hit
back-to-back solo home runs in the
fifth, and Ryan Ferby scored on a
wild pitch from Pirate reliever Ja-
son Mills to close the Pack scoring.
ECU managed two more runs
off of Roupe in the seventh on a
single from Brian Yerys, scoring
Jamie Borel and Jason Head.
Roupe (6-0) remains unde-
feated for the season and State im-
proves to 30-12-1.

Rugby team pulls victory
The ECU rugby team play their alumni this
Saturday at 1 p.m. on the Allied Health Field.
The East Carolinian
ECU's rugby team went to Richmond, Va and
came away victors in the Richmond Collegiate Tour-
nament. The Pirates scored at will in two games and
created a narrow one-point loss in a match they could
have won. They even got some help from the Univer-
sity of North Carolinia to secure the win.
In the first round, ECU lost a very close decision to
James Madison, Virginia's champions, 11-10. The Pi-
rates started slowly, possibly because of a three hour
drive that started at six a.m.
ECU scored when Joey " Dogboy " Meekins crossed
over for a try which Rich Moss converted. Moss also
had a penalty goal, but it was the difficult kick he
missed with one minute left that made the difference.
When JMU was penalized near the sideline, Moss
lifted a kick into the twisting wind. The ball seemed to
go between the uprights, but the referee waved it off
and time ran out as the Pirates were driving into the
Dukes' goal line one more time.
Without leaving the field, the Pirates then faced
Virginia Commonwealth University. The frustration
from the previous jss led to an annihilation of VCU by
a 43-3 score. The Pirates were led by Rick Snow and

"I appreciate what Jerry did
Gogan told Dallas television station

in the year 2022. The movie will be shown at Hendrix Theatre on April 25 at 8:00 p.m.

Well, the Student Union Films Com-

No Escape is a futuristic action
thriller whichstarsRay Liotta asCapt.
The catch? The prison is a remote
island called Absolom, where there is
no escape and almost no chance of
and left to die.
On Absolom, there is a primitive
civilization divided into two groups;
the Outsiders, anarchistic savages led
by Marek (Stuart Wilson), and the
Insiders, a group of peaceful colonists
led by the Father (Lance Henriksen).
The two groups are enemies and are
constantly battlingeachother. But John
Robbins has only one agenda: surviv-
ing and escaping the island.
Ray Liotta, who plays Robbins,
has starred in many acclaimed
"sleeper" movies. The role that made
him famous was for gangster Henry
Hill in Goodfcllas, for whichhe received
an Oscar nomination.
Lance Henriksen, who plays the
Father, is well-known for his role as
Bishop, the android in Aliens. He has
also starred in Stone Cold, Tlie Termina-
tor and fagged Edge.
Kevin Dillon, brother of Matt
Dillon, plays Casey, a fellow inmate.
His other films include TJw Doors and

No Escape is based on Richard

The rest of the album seems a bit
more like theolderHolestuff, but with
what is perhaps a more mature twist.
Songs from the first album, like "Teen-
age Whore" and "Gixxl SisterBad
Sister" explored the taboos of female
sexuality indisrurbing terms andsnarl-
On songs like "Miss World" and
"Jennifer's Body the new album
seems more interested in the expecta-
tions of women and the disturbing
reality. Sex is still a major topic, but it's
not handled in as graphic a manner.
Love still growls and screams, but it's
not as brutal. Generally, Lizv Tliwit�li
Tliis is just not as juicy as the first
album; Hole isn't quite so sticky any-
An unfortunate side effect of this
new maturity, however, is a drop in
the band's intensity. As guitarist Eric
Frlandson said in one i t the numer-
ous Holeinterviews(theonlvonel let
myself read), the guitars sound
wimpy on Live Tliwugli Tliis. Of
Kim Gordon produced the first al-
bum and brought her noise guitar
sound to it, 1 suppose any tiling short
of an all-out assault would sound
wimpy. But themusic here occasion-
ally slips into something too stan-
dard; even once in a while, Hole
sounds like just another alternative
band. And that's one tiling we really
don't need anv more of, thanks.

When Courtney Love screams, she
screams effectively, and even- so of-
ten Hole's punk roots show beauti-
fully. So, never mind the hype, the
controversy or the non-stop MTV
exposure.Liv Tlirough Tliis deserves
to be heard. Check it out.
