Medical School receives national grant
By Stephanie Lassiter
Assistant News Editor
Perhaps now that the ECU
School of Medicine is making an
effort to increase the number of
physicians in eastern North Caro-
lina, the student health center will
be able to offer quicker service.
Funding for a new project,
The ECU Generalist Physician
Program, will come from the
nation's largest health care phi-
lanthropy and a partnership of
state and local organizations. The
$20 million campaign, expected
to run six years, is primarily
funded by the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation (RWJ), which
has pledged the medical school
with $135 million dollars for the
first three-year phase and close to
$1 million for the second phase.
"The support of the founda-
tion beautifully coincides with our
mission to train primary care phy-
sicians and to improve health care
in eastern North Carolina said
Dr. James A. Hallock, vice chan-
cellor for health sciences and dean
of the medical school.
The program's primary con-
cern is to beef up the roster of
primary care doctors in North
Carolina's smaller communities
and rural areas. Because of the
recent shortage of medical care,
the residents in these communi-
ties have had difficulty receiving
basic medical services.
According to a press release
supplied by the Office of Medical
Center Newsand Information, the
number of primary physicians,
such as family doctors, general
internists and general pediatri-
cians, is decreasing. Today, only
30 percent practice those special-
The RWJ Foundation re-
sponded to the current need and
started a national program.
Eighty-three medical schools
across the nation, sent proposals
to the foundation. ECU was one
of 14 applicants who received

Hancock, a graduate of East
Carteret High School, was chosen

said Dr. James Smith, a philosophy
professor and the executive assis-
tant to the chancellor. Smith was
one of the judges who was involved
in the final 30-minute interviewing
processof Hancock and seven other
prospective students.
"It was a tough competition
said Smith. "ECU givesoutapproxi-
mately 12 to 15 scholarships each
year, and the Chancellor's Scholar-
ship is the crown of all, totaling
$20,000, which will hopefully cover

daughter is a very thorough musi-
cian, who sings, has been drum

as well as first clarinet, and ex-
tends her musical talent by play-

Smith said that Emily was
one of the eight finalists who were
judged on five distinctive catego-
ries including the student's high
school GPA, participation in ex-
tra-curricular activities and public
service, as well as the potential for
outstanding leadership abilities
and overall representation of ECU.
"We know that the music
courses will be very demanding
and time-consuming said Mrs.

With the help of the founda-
tion and other sources, ECU plans
to increase the number of primary
care physicians to 60 percent. If
ECU is successful, it will have
undertaken and succeeded in a
feat no other medical school has
attempted, persuading more of
its graduates to practice in
underserved areas.
"We have created a partner-
ship which brings tremendous
strength and commitment to this
effort said Dr. Thomas G. Irons,
the medical school's senior asso-
ciate dean and a principal archi-
tect of the project. "All of our plans
have been developed around the
needs of the people we serve. With
that strength, mission and com-
mitment, I believe that we are
bound to succeed
The medical school plans to
attack the issues beginning with
dealing with a young person's
earliest interest in medicine as a
career to the veteran "country
doctor" serving the rural popula-
tion. Focal points for change in-
clude recruiting and selecting
medical school applicants who
seem likely candidates for prac-
ticing in rural areas, redesigning
the curriculum to integrate pri-
mary care instruction throughout
all four years of medical school,
relocating much of the clinical
training to community practice
sites and making the rural setting
more hospitable to the practice of
primary care medicine.
The information highway
will be used to link rural physi-
cians with Greenville to offer
mem technical support, prac-
tice-relief and peer contact that
previously have been missing.
Permanent teaching sites will
be established throughouteast-
em North Carolina.
Currently, teaching sites
are located in Ahoskie,
Williamston, Tarboro, Nags
Head, Faison and Snow Hill.
"Our hypothesis is that if
our students and residents are
training in these settings, they'll
realize they can practice good
medicine, that they have the re-
sources they need, that the
lifestyle is good, and that this
type of practice is, in fact, an
excellent option for them said
Bob Hooley-Gingrich, who will
manage ECU'S Generalist Phy-
sician Program.
Reserve officer speaks out
By Jason Williams
News Editor
Working asa student reserve
officer at ECU Public Safety is
supposed to be a paying job, but
at least one student says he has
been working for free.
Jeff Rorer, a junior chemis-
try major, filed a formal complaint
with the department alleging he
had not been compensated for
time spent in training and attend-
ing mandatory meetings for the
department. In response to his
complaint, Layton Getsinger, as-
sociate vice chancellor for busi-
ness affairs, launched an investi-
gation and Director of Public
Safety Teresa Crocker vowed to
change the policy regarding com-
pensation for training.
"I met with Director Crocker
first Rorer said. "That was the
action that prompted the investi-
"They have a policy of man-
datory meetings, training sessions
Rorer said. "The meetings
would average about two hours.
That's just tradition with Public
Safety; that's the way it's always
been done.
"I use my own free time to
represent the university in those
meetings and I think I should be
compensated for this
Crocker said Public Safety
did have a policy that explicitly
stated reserve officers would not
be paid for training sessions, but
that it definitely will be changed.
"I think we should pay them
for their training; that is only fair
she said. "They will be paid for
their training and for the meet-
ings. People should be paid for
things we ask them to do
Crocker said the department
will pay reserve officers currently
on the payroll as well as the offic-
ers returning in the fall. Rorer's is
the first complaint about the
She said another of Rorer's
complaints, the policy requiring
reserves to return to campus early
before each semester, could not
be changed. She said these offic-
ers were needed to help students
move in the dorms, provide gen-
eral security, et cetera.
Getsinger said a 1990 Stan-
dard Operating Procedure (SOP)
stated the training and other time
was time donated to the univer-
sity. He said Public Safety has
never compensated reserve offic-
ers for time spent in training.
"I don't agree with this phi-
losophy Getsinger said. "I think
he ought to be paid. If this train-
ing relates to job-specific infor-
mation, then we should be paying
Getsinger said according to
the previous reserve officer su-
pervisor, the reserves set their own
policies. "They pretty much ran
themselves he said. "They
made their own SOP, and they
set their own guidelines for
training. The current SOP does
not specify whether training is
on the clock or off the clock
Getsinger said he has con-
tacted the N.C. State Wage and
Hour Office about the matter.
"The people at the wage and
hour office said it would ap-
pear that we need to pay some-
body for that type of work he
said. "The policy now is that
he won't be paid, but we are
willing to make it right
"In the past, I've been paid
for training at other jobs he
said. "I worked for the library,
an on-campus job, and they paid
for mandatory training. That is
university policy and it is also
the law
The law to which Rorer
referred is the Fair Labor Stan-
dards Act (FLSA) of 1938,
amended most recently in 1989.
This act states if an employee is
engaged in on-the-job training,
the employer must provide at
least a minimum wage or a com-
parable wage rate prescribed
by the FLSA.
Rorer has worked at Pub-
lic Safety as a student reserve
for over a year. He is still with
the department and has no
plans to quit.
Box for
This employee looks as
if he has seen better days
in the shirt selling
business. Perhaps he
should target incoming
freshmen and their
parents. By dressing the
fact that every freshman
should have at least five
shirts with the EC U logo
before coming to
school, he could
convince parents of
orientation students to
buy their kids' clothes.
By the way, how much

Generation X'ers having fewer kids
Chapel Hill to get microbrew pub
Maybe drinking beer is an important part of a college education
after all. It certainly was for Chris Rice and Robert Poitras, who
graduated from UNC in May. Instead of frantically sending out
resumes, they are making plans to open Chapel Hill's first
microbrewery. They plan to open The Carolina Brewery in the former
Mast General Store building on West Franklin Street sometime this
fall. Mast General Store closed this spring because of low sales. A
brew pub is an on-site, craft brewery that produces between 500 and
5,000 barrels of beer a year. Because microbreweries make a small
amount of beer, they do not have to pasteurize the beer or use any
additives to preserve shelf life.
Is an MBA worthwhile?
Nearly three-fourths of executives and human resource manag-
ers responding to a recent Penn State survey say they would advise
their own sons and daughters that an MBA degree is still worth
having. However, more than half of those surveyed also say they plan
to hire fewer MBAs in the future. The results come from a survey of
153 Forbes 500 companies conducted by the Penn State Smeal College
of Business Administration. According to the survey, 715 percent of
those polled say they wouldn't try to talk their children our of
pursuing an MBA, while only 10 percent say they would discourage
such plans. Still, 56 percent expect to hire fewer MBAs in the future
and say that three to five years of work experience will be a must in
their hires. More than 61 percent also say they plan to fill their future
human resource needs with bachelor's degree recipients and to later
rely upon executive development programs to enhance that talent.
Students sign up for Rush (Limbaugh) class
Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is a man people either seem to
love or loathe. His views are treated as dogma by some and dog meat
by others. Now, Limbaugh's controversial discourse is the subject of
a class at Bellevue College, where students can decide whether or not
they agree with the political commentator. "Is Rush Right? Learning
from the Conflicts" is a new class offered by the small liberal arts
college, located just outside of Kansas City. Students are required to
read Limbaugh's two books, as well as material that takes an oppos-
ing viewpoint to various issues. They also have guest speakers who
present their sides of issues on subjects such as abortion, welfare and
international policy. The class then discusses their own opinions.
Although the two Bellevue professors encourage open discussions in
the class, they are careful not to get personally engulfed in the issues.

huge number of young men and

II, who were basically Depression

At the time President
Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the
bill into law, millions of WWII
servicemen and women would
soon be returning home. It was
widely believed their return
would mean widespread unem-
ployment and would throw the
nation into an economic depres-
sion, as it had after World War I.
WWI veterans, many physi-
cally disabled, struggled to sur-
vive after the war. Very little had
been done to assist them medi-
cally, and there was no effort to
help them readjust after their dis-
charge. Upon returning home,
they found they had another battle
to fight.
"There had never been a law
on the country's books to help war
veterans get back on their feet
Wood said. "So from their own
experience, (WWI veterans) were
wondering, 'What's going to hap-
pen to these guys coming back?
In 1943, veterans began a
grassroots movement to ensure a
better fate for these younger vet-
erans. After considerable effort,
they were joined by journalists,
politicians and the general public
in making this bill a reality. Since
then, it has helped to educate more
than 20 million Americans and
purchase more than 14 million
"It is called 'The Act that
Changed America and it did,
because it sent so many to col-

more educated; therefore, they
started businesses, they became

the whole United States, and they
paid higher taxes because they
earned much more. The whole bill
is considered by the V A (Veterans
Administration) and many others
to have repaid itself over 20 times
its original investment. So it was
an amazing thing. It created a
whole new middle class in the
United States
Half of the eligible WWII
veterans, nearly 8 million, used
the new educationtraining pro-
grams. This increased the employ-
ability of veterans in better-pay-
ing technical and professional
positions. It also kept them out of
the labor force longer, allowing
the economy to absorb the job-
seekers more slowly.
Under the plan, veterans
(with no dependents) were given
up to $50 a month for subsistence
and the university received up the
$500 a year for tuition, books and
fees for 48 months. By 1947, veter-
ans accounted for half the nation's
college enrollment. In 1939, about
160,000 graduated from four-year
colleges. In 1950, nearly a half
million graduated. The total cost
of the WWII program was $14.5

education firsthand. As part of the

at Purdue University. (Later, after
serving in the Marine Corps, Wood
also used the GI Bill to earn his
master's degree at Notre Dame.)

of contributing an amount from
their salary, in order to receive

TEC bids Kemple Boy adieu, wishes him luck I
This is weird. I mean, really weird. I'm not only
talking about writing the masthead for the first (and
last) time, but that universal of all human experiences:
transition. Yes, you know what I'm leading up to. It's
graduation time for your friendly neighborhood
Kemple Boy, and although I say it with some
trepidation, it's a welcome experience indeed.
I suppose the inherent "weirdness" of my
situation emanates not only from the obvious anxiety
of having to join the real world after years of only
having to think of it in a disconnected, abstract sense,
but also because, and I'm probably not alone in this,
I tend to wax nostalgic whenever I'm about to go
through a transition period. Even though I swear to
myself I'll never do it, I always take a look back and
reminisce, like all of those trite little sitcom episodes
where, rather than write a new script, the writers
treat you to a half-hour of old clips.
I've worked here at The East Carolinian for five
years now, ever since my first week of my freshman
year. That was the first real inception of the entity
known as Kemple Boy, and yes, if there's any of you
who care, I'll go ahead and dispel the myth of why I
decided to name a character after myself. It's not
because I'm conceited, or a narcissist, or because I
love seeing my name in print (no wait, that part is
true). Put simply, I couldn't come up with anything
else. It was all a big joke. It wasn't because I was
taking myself too seriously, but rather, I was kind of
poking fun at myself. At the time, I thought I'd get
bored with it, quit and draw another strip anyway.
The. satire I was doing grew into a full-fledged
adventure strip, however, and the more stories I did,
the more ideas that popped in my head. Little did I
know the cult following the strip, and the comics
page in general, which would emerge.
Ah, what youthful fun. Spending all day doing
silh.little art projects, then spending all night doing
my cartoons, never sleeping, taking in caffeine
intravenously, and wondering if it was all worth it.
Vyell, I think it was. Hanging out with Parker and all
the others from the old crew, drawing, reading tons
o' comics, overdosing on Bojangles biscuits, drawing
painting, putting up with some of my instructors'
elitist, arrogant and uniformed opinions on the
hierarchy of the arts, trying to have a social life
whenever possible, oh, and did I mention drawing?
But the culmination of all my collegiate experiences
came when I got the "job of jobs" for any aspiring
college cartoonist, the Staff Illustrator position. Okay,
get out yer hankies, this is the mushy part.
Of all the friends that have come and gone in
my life, my colleagues here at the newspaper are the
ones I hold dearest. Honestly folks, you don't know
what a great crew you have here. The amount of
work these people do just to put out a quality college
paper, in comparison to all the headaches, late school
assignments, misdirected complaints, and low wages
they get in return would make your head spin. And
not to knock other schools, but I've seen their papers,
and they don't have anything on ECU. Trust me,
chump change!
So thank you to Amy, Alex, Gregory, Burt,
Deborah, and all the others who have stuck around,
supported and helped me throughout this entire
insane year. I salute you, and know you'll all go far.
And to all of the talented young cartoonists who I've
had the pleasure of working under me this year, keep
drawing, and always strive for excellence! It's always
easy to give up when no one understands all the
extra work you have to do, but it'll all pay off in the
end, if you persist!
As for me, I'm off to the zany, wild, sometimes
frightening, and financially unstable world of
comic books! So, goodbye ECU, thanks for reading
all my exploits, as fictional as they were, over the
years, and keep looking for me; you never know
where my work will pop up!

amused. There were, after all, two
murders at the corejpf all of the
surre'aiity before us. St somehow,
as is so often the cafc, the crime
had been obscured by the
melodrama of media coverage.
And the media coverage,
along with absurd details of the
killings (for example, the murder
weapon was either a samurai
sword or a truncheon. Excuse me?
That is like saying, as my friend
Kevin remarked, "the murder
weapon was either a bookcase or
�an egg beater") allowed the events
to unfold before us like a bad T. V.
show. Like a cross between the

had taken place earlier. All I could

� When we
saw prerecorded coverage of the
actual chase, we were a bit
disappointed. The cars weren't
moving fast enough; no bullets
were being fired. It occurred to me
that I'd never seen a real chase
before; I'd only seen such pursuit
in movies. Perhaps real high-speed
chases were different. Perhaps if
high-speed chases occur outside
of staged Hollywood fantasy, I
can no longer have any concept of
reality. After Saturday night, it
may be a long time before I try to
separate fact from fiction.
Just when we thought the
situation on CNN couldn't get any
worse, it did. A polic officer

�nind that O. J. Simpson has been
accused of murder, never mind
that he seems to have flipped out,
led police on a high-speed chase,
written what sounded like a
suicide note and finally
surrendered � we wanted to see
the guy dressed like a bush.
We speculated as to whether
or not the government was behind
this event; perhaps as a way to
keep the world oblivious to the
war that could have started with
Korea while we sat discussing how
much funnier it would have been
if it had been Harrison Ford instead
of O. J. Simpson. The Fugitive as
the fugitive. Remind me (again)
never to move to Los Angeles.
So this is what has happened
to us, perhaps as a generation, but
more likely as a society. We have
become too jaded to be shocked,
too cynical to be sympathetic,
especially when we get the play-
by-play of every newsworthy
event. Every absurd detail comes
complete with a backdrop and a
cheesy soundtrack. There was
even a telephone number for
viewers to call and comment. We
tried to call � we were going to
ask if there was any suspicion that
O. J. Simpson was connected in
any way to the Kennedy
assassination � but the line was
I am slightly uneasy about my
ability to make light of such a
situation, but after the gulf war
coverage, Lorena Bobbitt and
Nancy and Tonya, I can't really
expect to have any other reaction.
I suppose that if there's a Hell, my
friends and I might end up there
because of our attitudes, but I don't
think any of us really believe in
such a concept. But if there is a
Hell, I imagine it's a lot like L. A.
and I imagine that I'll be forced to
watch CNN 24 hours a day.
I wasn't surprised at all to
see O.J. Simpson plead not guilty
the other day in court. I can't say I
believe him at this point, but I'm
still trying to keep an open mind
that he may yet be proven
innocent. However, the current
circumstances and what we know
of his actions sure seem to paint a
different picture as to what he was
going through after the murders
of his ex-wife and Ronald
Goldman. The letters that he wrote
that were read aloud on the news
seemed very much to me like
suicide notes from a very guilt-
ridden person. His actions prior
to the murders seemed to point to
the probability that he was at least
capable of perhaps completely
losing it with his ex-wife at some
point, as he may have now done.
Who knows, at this point, what
actur ly happened, but,
presuming that he is guilty, which
I can't help but feel, I wonder what
his legal moves will be.
First, there's a lot of evidence
against him. If there wasn't, the
district attorney in Los Angeles
wouldn't have filed charges. You
don'tjustarrestsomeoneand then
build your case, you've got to have
solid evidence against that person
before you make that kind of
critical move. There's no murder
weapon though. I wonder where
it is. It will be very hard to really
nail O.J. without having a weapon,
and a way to completely tie him to
it. Without the murder weapon,
there remains a lot of doubt. I can't
help but feel that it will turn up
eventually, though. With so many
police working on this case, I doubt
many stones will be left unturned.
I also can't help but feel that
the defense will seek to use O.Js
public persona in their favor � to
paint him somehow as the true
victim in all of this, which is the
grand new trend in defense law
these days (see the Menendez
case). Everywhere I turn lately I
see defense lawyers getting their
clients off by making the jury
believe that the perpetrator was
the real victim, that they were only
products of the cruel
circumstances that led up the their
crimes. The rights of the victims
seem to be the very last thing we
consider when trying murder
cases, especially with high profile
crimes. The cry for rehabilitation
drowns out the lost voices of the
victims, who had no chance to
defend themselves, who had no
opportunity to speak up on their
own behalf, who, as we so often
seem to forget, had a right not to
be raped, assaulted, or murdered.
What happens to their rights?
What happens to ours, when it
happens to us? The answer lately
seems to be that it doesn't matter,
that what happened to the victim
is something that we cannot
change, thus it is of less importance
than the matter at hand, the rights
of the accused.
I agree that certain
circumstances build up to criminal
action, but I also believe that we
should lay off on the rights of
criminals and start caring a little
more about the rights of the
victims. O.J Simpson's wife and
that young guy had every right in
the world to go on living, to make
whatever they wished to make
out of their lives. Yet, that was
greedily and brutally taken from
them by someone else, and no one
has the right to do that.
On the local news the other
day I saw a guy who killed his
own mother, cut off her head and
burned her body in his front yard.
Do you wonder what will happen
to him? I'd bet anything that he'll
be found unfit to stand trial, and
will no doubt spend the rest of his
life (probably forty or fifty more
years) in an institution, just one
more criminal living out his years
at the expense of the tax payers,
the victims. We pay with our lives,
with our rights, and then we pay
with our dollars.
Michael Faye, the young lad
who received so much attention
from the lashings he earned in
Singapore, was released from jail
in that country yesterday. Those
who don't feel that capital
punishment, or even harsh,
mandatory punishment for certain
crimes is an effective deterrent,
should ask Mr. Faye if he plans on
spray painting any more vehicles
in Singapore while he's there.
I believe certain things have
gone too far. I think they'll
continue to do so until people
finally get mad enough to speak
up for changes, until we finally
get tired of always being the
victims. As for what the future
may hold for Mr. Simpson, well, I
think no matter what, in my heart
and in the hearts of many others,
O.J. has definitely run his last
touchdown. It's damn hard to have
any heroes these days.

To the Editor:
As a recent graduate of East Carolina University-
in Music Therapy and Music Education, I am very
pleased with vour efforts to educate the ECU
community about Music Therapy, a profession that
is growing at a rapid pace. Using the power of music
to heal is a concept that has been around for hundreds
of years. Although the article Music has the power
to heal, which appeared in the June 8,1994 issue of
The East Carolinian, was brief, it touched on many of
the avenues music therapists can take to help people
from all walks of life, all of whom have a wide variety
of needs. Everyone can benefit from Music Therapy.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to see more
coverage of Music Therapy, as well as other
professions in music, in the future.

To the Editor:
East Carolina University truly amazes me!
Poor ECU, plagued with a "party-school reputation
administrators are trying so hard to shake. It appears
that ECU has been growing, and beginning to reach
the level of professionalsim and scholastic expertise
that UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State have dominated
for so long.
I once had pride in this theory, arguing with
my State and Carolina friends that ECU is just as
good a university as their own. How wrong I was.
I look back at the four years that I spent on the
ECU campus, and realize how disrespectfully I was
treated by administrators every time I had to register,
ask a question, solve a problem or pay one of the
many fees. And now, the lowest blow. The blow that
has pushed me into finally admitting that no, ECU
may never reach that professional level.
I graduated on May 7,1994. However, it is now
June 13. 1994, and it appears that I may not receive
my diploma until 1995.1 have called my department,
deans and finally the registrars office, and have been
told in an unpolite sic, unapologetic way, "Oh, they
haven't been sent out yet, maybe next week
This is unexcusable. My friends at State and
Carolina, who also graduated in May, received their
diplomas on the day that they graduated. Which
brings me to anouther question: Why did I not receive
my diploma on May I am furious, I am embarassed,
and I will definitely have to think very seriously
before I give the alumnae sic department a penny
when they begin to beg for my money, or when I
consider where to do my graduate work.

Opinion Page Supplement
By Jason Williams
By Brian Hall
United Nations thanklessly continues its mission
A modest proposal to solve U.S. foreign policy woes
The United Nations gets a bad
rap. Liberals call the organization
weak and ineffective, and blame it
for not responding to many crises
around the world. Conservatives
say it is too powerful and it
undermines the sovereignty of
each member nation. Even farther
right are those such as
televangalist Pat Robertson who
say the U.N. is an attempt at world
government and therefore fulfills
doomsday biblical prophesy.
Although each claim is made
with conviction, none is made with
thoughtful consideration. As is my
habit, however, I tend to side with
the liberals.
The mere conception of an
"association of nations" is quite
an accomplishment, and we have
philosophers such as Hugo
Grotius and Immanuel Kant to
thank for that. Woodrow Wilson
was responsible for the League of
Nations, the current organization's
predecessor, formed at the end of
World War I. Unfortunately, a
group of haughty and provincial
Senators led by Republican Henry
Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts
opposed the League and refused
to sign the Treaty of Versailles.
That treaty, based on Wilson's
Fourteen Points, established the
organization in Europe; but
without the support of a
superpower, it would not survive
the conflicts of the 1930's.
Following WWII, U.S. leaders
such as FDR, Truman and
Eisenhower had the foresight not
to make the same isolationist
mistake again. There were the
narrow-minded then, as in
.Vilson's time, but there were also
the "one-worlder's a group
committed to greater cooperation
between nations. In the end, a
middle ground was forged and
thus arose the U.N.
Over the years, the U.N. has
not solved every world problem,
but has steadily gained in stature
and significantly added to the
peace. Early leaders dropped the
ball when they allowed the U.S.
and the Zionist movement to seize
Palestinian land for an Israeli state,
but the organization voted then
and since then against Israel's use
of force in the Middle East. The
U.N. handled the end of
colonization and the surge of
"nationism" (a made-up word to
describe the proliferation of
countries following WWII) as well
as could be expected given the
political climate at the time.
Is the U.N. strong enough?
Probably not, given that what the
world expects of it. In the bi-polar
world of the cold war past, either
the United States or the Soviet
Union kept the peace in most of
the world. They acted not on
humanitarian motives, but rather
out of national self-interest. Now,
in the days of a single, reluctant
superpower, the world needs an
international organization more
than ever.
The U.N. should be given
more power to enforce its
resolutions, especially those of the
General Assembly. Only the U.S.
has that power, and the current
administration, seemingly not
knowing what to do with it, might
be willing to grant the U.N. more
authority to act.
One aspect of the
organization's structure that has
reduced its capacity to act in the
past is the Security Council veto.
A veto by any one of the five
permanent members of the
Security Council � the U.S the
U.S.S.R. (Russia), China, Great
Britain or France � would halt an
action, even if the vote was 14 to
The Security Council should
probably be disbanded, or at least
stripped of most of its power. As a
deliberative body, the U.N. should
involve all nations in policy-
making, a job for the General
Is the U.N. an infringement of
national sovereignty? Not really.
Nations freely join, or refuse to
join the organization, and indeed,
some countries (notably
Switzerland) are not members.
Granted, the world community
pressures nations to join, but that
is a positive thins, comparable to
urging people in a democracy to
A resolution of the U.N in
and of itself, does not have teeth; it
is up to individual (or collective)
nations to enforce sanctions,
defend territory, et cetera. This
was the case in the Persian Gulf
war of 1990 and is the case in most
major military initiatives.
Peacekeeping missions involving
U.N. troops are on the rise, but
usually to intervene in wars rather
than to interfere with domestic
Is the U.N. a world
government? Absolutely not.
Robertson and his gang of
isolationists act on selfish,
outdated and backward notions,
and are simply afraid of
internationalism. These people
need an enemy, a bogeyman such
as the communists, and the U.N.
currently fits the bill.
The organization will survive,
in spite of the criticism, if for no
other reason than we haven't
thought of anything better. The 50
years since its creation probably
ranks among the most peaceful
half-centuries in world history,
and the U.N. should be around to
celebrate its 100th birthday in
relative peace as well.
As we are all made aware of
every night on the news, our world
is greatly troubled. Large portions
of our globeare wracked with civil
strife, famine, human rights abuses
and general turmoil. Many of us
wish that we could do something
about these horrific problems; we
wish that we might do something
to alleviate the suffering in the
Third World, but we feel as
thought we cannot. However,
there is a rather simple solution,
which I humbly submit for your
thoughtful consideration.
The obvious problem is a
lack of stability, brought on by a
lack of focus and leadership in our
post-Cold War world. With the
end of the communist threat,
America has turned increasingly
inward, as the Russians frantically
try to put their own house in order.
Mv modest proposal to
solve this problem is a return to
that which worked in the past. For
it is by looking to the past that we
may find answers to our current
troubles. In sum, what I propose is
a return to imperialism,
unilaterally if need be, but
hopefully with the support of our
European allies.
Now, no doubt, many will
object to this idea, believing the
concept is unfair. Perhaps there is
some merit to this charge.
However, we Americans will have
to learn to bear a little extra burden,
unfair as it may be, to help our
brethren in distress. It is our
Christian duty.
Some may believe that our
already troubled economy will not
be able to handle the strain of such
expensive adventures. However,
surely any such expenditures will
be more than made up for by the
new business opportunities,
which will present themselves in
our new colonies. Moreover, if, as
I suspect, our European allies have
become too weak and effete to
participate, then America will
have a unique advantage heading
into the next century.
While the term
"imperialism" is now used only
pejoratively, I feel that after due
consideration, such a plan cannot
fail to'garner overwhelming
popular support. We all know of
the Republicans enthusiasm for
foreign adventures. On the
Democrat side, the administration
is already considering a watered
down version of this same plan, as
we contemplate an invasion of
Haiti. Such an a'ction is
vociferously supported by the
Congressional Black Caucus.
While the president claims
American troops would be hastily
withdrawi, the very fact that we
are considering interfering in the
internal affairs of another country
proves that we really still believe
that America should rule the
world. Perhaps our "New
Democrat" president could
overcome objections by labeling
this "New Imperialism
This proposal will also have
the happy result of easily refuting
the pitiful arguments against
intervention. No more will
opponents of action be able to ask,
"What is America's vital interest
in Haiti?" (or whatever nation in
which we are currently
considering intervention.) Our

It's not very often that you get
a chance to be reborn. It's an elu-
sive opportunity, especially when
the rebirth has to fake place in a
music community- as fickle as our
fair Emerald City.
The Stegmonds, a former
Greenville juggernaut, have such
an opportunity this Friday night,
when they hold a CD release party
at The Attic. Formed at ECU in
1987, the band has suffered .
through difficult lineup changes
and a transition toward original
music that had seen a decline in
the size of their Greenville audi-
ence. Only by holding fast to their
belief in themselves have The
Stegmonds started to win back
that coveted Greenville follow-
The release of their debut CD,
Miso's Tango, represents a new
chapter in The Stegmond's his-
tory. After its initial formation,
the group began plotting a course
to conquer the Greenville night-
club scene; which it did, becom-
ing ECU's favorite classic-rock
group in the late 1980's. The band
d rew mobs of fans and became a
mainstay at the Attic, the area's
largest nightclub.
The addition of frontman
Martin Sledge furthered the
group's impact as it began to
spread to other states and add to
its formidable status. The
Stegmonds were among
Greenville's elite bands until
Sledge announced that he was
leaving the group to pursue other
interests nearly two years ago.
While perceived by many at
the time to herald the group's
demise, according to the
Stegmond's Pete Frederick, the
band was actually relieved at
Sledge's decision.
"It was a two-fold reaction
between relief and apprehen-
sion Frederick said. "The relief
came from the fact that at that
point (Sledge's) commitment was
in question. He didn't seem to be
happy with dealing with life on
the roadit just wasn't his bag.
Then, the apprehension came in
from us being a full-time band
that was losing its singer. We were

the band remains a mainstay in the Greenville music scene with their brand of '70s influenced rock and roll.
reiving on the band for our in-
come and that made it a little
Frederick said that the band
had never considered quitting,
despite the problems that Sledge's
departure brought to life. He said
that the group maintains a good
relationship with Sledge and
holds no hard feelings towards
their former frontman.
After Sledge's departure, the
group continued on as a four-
piece, and while they remained
strong in many markets, their au-
dience LnGreenvilledeclined. Ac-
cording to drummer Jeff Alford,
that decline is hard to deal with.
"It's tough Alford said. "But
it's also kind of a fire under the
ass. It really made us sit down
and think about what we wanted
to do and evaluate if it was worth
it. The bottom line is that we got to
the point where we are now writh
the CD
The group soon added pia-
nistorganist Micheal Thrower to
contribute to the depth of the
Stegmonds'sound. Frederick said
that Thrower's playing gives the
band a new dimensionand has
allowed for the evolution of the
band's signature sound.
Alford said that the group had
many "great debates" about re-
cording the project but feels proud
of the finished product. Accord-
ing to the veteran drummer, it
seems more worthwhile to be pre-
senting original material rather
than just the covers that brought
the Stegmonds their fame.
"Any musician knows that
when you're pushing your own
material it's a lot more intense
Alford said. "Now that there is a
product to work with, something
the audience can relate to, it feels
really good
Frederick said that the title of
the CD reflected the duality in
everyday life, particularly in rela-
"Miso is a euphemism for
hate he said. "And a tango is a
dance of peace and love, so it's a
paradox of sorts. In the title track,
the lead character is trying to find
a woman and the song reflects his
love for the opposite sex and his
hate of being rejected all the time.
I think that's something everyone
can relate to at one time or an-
While the theme of the album
will be no mystery for listeners to
figure out, how the band named
itself still remains one. Discount-
ing a recent account given to the
local tabloid, the Independent, as
"a lie Frederick promised to give
the true account of the naming of
the Stegmonds to TEC.
"You see, we were all raised
by the Reverend Desmond
Stegmond who brought us up to
plav this music he said. "While
he did admit that rock and roll is
the devil's music, he allowed us
to play it to keep us from doing
more devilish deeds. Really, it was
a 'lesser of twoevils' kind of thing.
He had a profound effect on us,
hence the name 'TheStegmonds
(Editor's note: Uh, yeah, and it
really takes three licks to get to the
center of a Tootsie Roll Pop.)
How the group really named
itself is irrelevant, however, as
the importance of the band lies in
its future. According to Alford,
the band plans to make no
changes from its current direc-
tion, and will continue to push
its original music towards new
"We're going to continue to
write music and push the origi-
nal thing he said. "All we can

Kiss My Ass

Ah, the American Family.
Mom, Dad, little Timmy, and Sister
Sue, all sitting down to pray over a
nutritious meal of white bread and
raw meat in their KISS make-up.

not, but it's at least an appropriate
image lor the cover of Kss My Ass,
i compilation of KISS tunes cov-
ered bv artists who grw up listen-
ing to the mighty Knights In Satan's
Service. '
Perhaps the most amazing
hing about Kiss My ASS is the wide
ange of artists who worked on it.
rhe disc features peoppe with such
lifferent musical sensibilities as
uirth Brooks, Anthrax, Toad the
A'et Sprocket, and Japanese rock
.tar Yoshiki. This odd mix gives the
lisc a diverse sound, which is a
ilessing. I grew up listening to KISS,
oo, and most of the standards cov-
ered here sound a little tired to my
ears. But for all you KISS purists out
there, don't whine if something
doesn't sound "right" to you; Gene
Simmons and Paul Stanley over-
saw this whole project, so it has the
KISS Seal of Approval.
My favorite track on Kiss My
Ass has to be Toad the Wet
Sprocket's version of "Rock and
Roll All Nite Sure to piss off all
those KISS purists I just mentioned,
this one takes away all the boister-
ous, blind stupidity of the original
and turns the song into an earnest
acoustic ballad. Imagine, if you can,
someone delivering the line "You
drive us wild, we'll drive you crazy"
as if it had deep emotional impact.
Oh, go ahead and laugh.
The giggles are sure to con-
tinue as KISS meets Mozart on
Yoshiki's classica 1 version of" Black
Diamond Yes, Yoshiki arranged
this KISS standard for full orches-
tral accompaniment, provided here
by the American Symphony Or-
chestra. Some will dismiss it as el-
evator music, but I howled with
laughter for the entire seven min-
utes of this track. Especially funny
is the point where the violinist nails
this song's tricky bridge. I nearly
coughed up a lung.
The other interesting tracks on
Kiss My Ass play with the KISS
originals without being quite so
bizarre. The Mighty Mighty
Bosstones, for instance, remain true
to the heart of "Detroit Rock City"

Saturday night, Hardee's
Walnut Creek Amphitheater
hosted the fourth annual
WRDU Earth Buddies concert.
This show was conceived with
the idea of raising awareness
of environmental issues
through music. Along with the
music there were many booths
set up by various organiza-
tions concerned with the envi-
ronment, including
Greenpeace, The Nature Con-
servancy, and the North Caro-
lina Parks and Recreation de-
All organizations offered
information on environmen-
tal consciousness and many
sold t-shirts and other "con-
scious" items. Probably one of
the most interesting was the
"make your own hat from gar-
bage" booth. You could tell
the people who had been there,
they were wearing some type
of cardboard, styrofoam and
plastic construction of their
head: quite amusing.
Now for the music. The
two acts that brought in the
crowds were the Crash Test
Dummies and Elvis Costello
and the Attractions. The
crowd was very diverse; old,
very young, matured hippies
and an abundance of slack-
ers. I think most of the ma-
ture audience was there for
the Crash Test Dummies,
thev seemed to be fewer af-
ter the first act was over.
Mavbe it had something to
do with the volume of
Costello's performance.
The Crash Test Dummies
were the first to take the
stage. They created a small
club feel to the concert, the
lead-singer joked with the
audience about everything
from copperheads being in
the grass area to how the sun
looked like it was made in
N.C. The lead singer's deep,
resonating baritone was
complimented by the two
female keyboard players;
their harmony was both
soothing and eerie.

Speaking of the songs, the

the difficulty of the music and

Neuwirth (Lilith Crane from

ish Lola. Strutting about the stage
in a bustier and garters and
cropped blonde wig (as evi-
denced in the CD package),
Neuwirth shows amazing talent
in the various manners in which
the part calls for her to sing her
four songs. The juicy "Whatever
Lola Wants (Lola Gets)" is a show
stopper that Neuwirth sings with
the lung power and wicked South
American accent that calls to
mind Ethel Merman and Rosie

while still making it their own.
Delivered with the Bosstones' char-
acteristically rough skapunk
edge, this track remains the pleas-
ingly gruntable rock anthem it's
always been, even with a horn sec-
tion. I also liked the ten seconds of
mosh-ready, hard-core beats laid
down at the end.
Also moshable is "Dr. Love
by Shandi's Addiction. Made up
of people from Rage Against the
Machine, Tool, and Faith No More,
Shandi's Addiction finds the evil
punk rock core of this song and
nasties it up. One of the problems
with KISS in the studio was that
they always cleaned things up too
much. The grungy, loud, bass-
heavy beats of Shandi's Addiction,
however, solve this problem in
grand style.
At the other end of the grunge
scale is Dinosaur Jr. with "Goin'

from their first album, but they
did play "Superman" which ev-

especially good. The highlight
of their set was the top 40 hit
"Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm a

Next up was Elvis Costello

just a bust of Beethoven on one
speaker, a stuffed parrot on the
drumset and other fine details.
With no introduction the band
came out and jumped right into
the first song. During one break

funky, upbeat version of this KISS

"Deuce" is a nice cut that remains
true to the original while still re-

Slightly less interesting tracks
include Anthrax on "She the Gin

is the greatest sin of cover tunes,

to hear this kind of stuff, I'd pull out

however, they're still somewhat
enjoyable. The only real low point
of Kiss My Ass is Garth Brooks'

how Italy's team was no good
and jumped right into the next
song. Mr. Costello had come to
play. With very few pauses, and
even fewer words, they played
for a more than an hour.
It may be worth noting that
both Costello and his bassist were
using vintage equipment as old
Vox amplifiers were their choice.
This old amplifier deal seems to
be very popular in the current
wave of alternative guitar bands
these days; however Costello has
probably known of their quality
for a few years.
They played many old favor-

tunes came from the last two al-

"Brutal Youth which have pro-
duced many lesser known tracks
that are just as good as the old
familiar ones.
Costello and the Attractions
came back for four encores,
which is really unusual for any
act, but the crowd was excep-
tionally receptive. One of the
better runes came in the next to
last encore. "Allison" was
played at an abnormally fast
tempo and then about halfway

better than my finals did
Hey, did ya hear what
happened to O.J.?
Everybody's heard by now,
so I really don't need to re-
cap the story. Simpson killed
his family. But then, William
Kennedy Smith raped the
woman in West Palm Beach
last year, as well. Wrong. Un-
til he is proven guilty (c in-
nocent, as in the Smith c?se),
Simpson is still an innocent
man, but if found guilty, his
case will go down as one of
the most publicized in mod-
ern times. That will become
a major problem in the case.
Where are the courts going
to find a jury that hasn't
heard too much about the
case, a jury that will be able
to decide Simpson's fate
without bias. It's going to be
next to impossible. One thing
is definitely clear, the sys-
tem is trying to convict
Simpson without a murder
weapon, armed with only cir-
cumstantial evidence. Look-
ing tired and distraught,
Simpson gave a "not guilty"
plea to Municipal Judge Parti
Jo McKay Monday morning.
He's been under constant
suicide watch since his cap-
ture which began late Friday
night and ended early Satur-
day morning eastern time.
The length of the case will be
taxing on Simpson, and it
could drag out over months,
even years. One more ques-
tion, did Hertz rent out that

The Tribe is on fire at
home. Winners (through
Monday) of 10 straight
games and 18 straight games
at home, Cleveland has
vaulted into first place in the
American League's Central
Division. It really comes as
no surprise; the Tribe has a
balanced mix of youngsters
and veterans, good hitting
and surprisingly great pitch-
ing. Jack Morris has returned
from the dead and won five
straight since shaving off his
trademark mustache, and
Kenny Lofton (Cleveland's
real-life Willie Mays Hayes)
quietly leads the team with a
.358 batting average and 33
steals. The pitching staff has
allowed only 54 homers this
season, fewest in the majors.
They only have two players
on the disabled list, and if
they can keep plavers
healthy, Cleveland could
take the division, especially
with a possible strike loom-
ing ahead. This is tne stuff
they make movies about,
isn't it?

Darryl Strawberry has
found a new home, and it's
Candlestick Park. The Gi-
ants, hoping to boost their
sagging bats, signed the
much-maligned outfielder to
a contract for the remainder
of the season. This could end
up killing the Dodgers in the
long run becausethey are
barely playing .500 ball
healthy, and the Giants are
only 5.5 games back. Baker
said that Strawberry is
healthy and in good physi-
cal shape, and should be
playing by the All-Star
Game. This will prove to be
one of .the best signings made

Disc golf is no ordinary sport
By Brian Olson
Sports Editor
Normally, one of the best
sounds in golf is the sound of
"plump" as a ball drops into the
cup. The best sound in Disc golf is
the 'Cha-Ching' of the putter disc
hitting the chains of the cage.
Disc golf has become one of
the most popular sports in Green-
ville over the last few years. The
course is located behind the ECU
baseball and Softball fields on
Charles St. and Greenville Blvd. If
you have driven by these streets,
you probably have seen many
people playing this free sport.
Disc golf is very similar to
re� � 11 a r gol f. Everv hole on the 1R-
hole course is a par three, where
normal golf ranges from par threes
to par fives. A variety of discs are
used instead of clubs and balls. To
finish a disc golf hole, the disc is
thrown into a four-foot cage in-
stead of putting a ball into a small
hole. Also, disc golf is free com-
pared to a round of golf, which
usually costs between $10-$40.
ECU has its own disc club, but
currently it has only two mem-
bers. Ben Deeter is head, and the
other member is Lewis Hoffman.
There are hundreds of disc players
in Greenville, but the two-mem-
ber club hopes to expand. Many
people do not know of the club.
Dues are only $8 per year and $5
per semester.
"You don't have to be a pro-
fessional at disc golf to be in the
club Deeter said. "You just have
to be willing to improve because
the more you play, the more you
The scores from golf and disc
golf are also very different. Your
average golf player will shoot from
high 80's to low 100's, whereas in
disc golf, you could shoot close to
Currently, there are two new cages on the course and 1
coming weeks. The new cages will help the discs from
par at 54. Pro golfers will shoot
scores close and under par near
mid-high 60's to low 70's. Ace disc
golfers will shoot from three to 12
under par normally.
"When I started a few years
ago, I used to shoot about 12 over
disc player Clifton Pike said. "But
now, I usually shoot from three to
eight under. I really enjoy the game,
and it can be addicting. Italso gives
me a chance to relax and have a
good time
Discs have different shapes to
accommodate different shots.
Regular golf uses clubs with dif-
ferent lofts to hit the ball straightat
different distances. Discs are simi-
lar and can be broken down into
three categories of drivers,
approachers and putters.
The drivers have a sharper
edge and cango long distances at
high speeds. They can go distances
close to 100 yards. Approach discs
have sort of a thicker lip that en-
ables the disc to travel a little
shorter or lower and go about 40-
70 yards. Putters are more domed
with a softer plastic and travel at
low speeds so they can hit the
Discs are also designed to
travel straight, left and right. Since
many of the holes are in woods,
these discs that curve are very im-
portant. They must travel around
trees and and bushes en route to

the hole, or cage.
Discs have different emblems
on them to signify what their pur-
pose or brand is. A baracuda disc,
for example, would be an approach
disc that turns right in the air.
Every Monday night, many
players can be seen in the weekly
tournament. It consists of about 30
players selected in a random draw,
paired in doubles with an amateur
and an ace. They play the best disc
of the two, and the winner will
usually shoot about 14 under par.
There are prizes and different pools
which makes it even more fun.

Game seven promises to be a war
