Pirate Points Debit Account Card Holders
As a result of concern expressed by a local merchant, an
agreement has been negotiated that will limit debit card (Pirate
Points) transactions to $50 on purchases at any one time. The
$50 limit is defined as including sales tax. Cashiers will not
"split ticket" purchases or process purchases "back-to-back" for
a customer with more than $50 worth of merchandise wishing
to use hisher debit card. The intent is to eliminate what was
perceived to be an unfair business advantage resulting from
the unique service offered by the debit card. The use of the
card system for Student Stores sponsored scholarships and the
purchase of books under authorized financial aid deferrals will
continue as in the past solely as an efficient bookkeeping
mechanism for handling these internal charges.
We regret any inconvenience this change in practice may
create for our customers. Thank you fcr your cooperation.

New dean appointed
By Tambra Zion
Assistant News Editor
After traveling around the
country in pursuit of education
research and employment, Dr.
Christian Zauner, dean of the
nevly established School of
Health and Human Performance
at ECU, says he is here to stay.
"Its really a wonderful op-
portunity I received my Ph.D.
in '63 most people at this stage
in their career are anxiously await-
ing retirement, but that never ap-
pealed to me. I feel very fortunate
to advance myself and to do some-
thing for this institution Zauner
said.
The School of Health and
Human Performance contains
three departments: exercise and
sport saence,healtheducationand
the department of leisure studies.
Dr. Zauner has many plans for the
school including theestablishment
of codes and policies.
"I hope that in the time that I
am here, I'm successful in finding
three new department chairs. We'll
do a national search this year for
the exercise and sports science de-
partment he said. "I also hope to
encourage the faculty to submit
grant proposals so that we're not
tied solely to state funding
Dr. Zauner came to ECU
from Oregon, where he was chair-
person of the department of exer-
cise and sport science at Oregon
State University. Before accepting
the position at Oregon State,
Zauner spent 19 years at the Uni-

After standing in line for
what seems like an eternity,
holding an armload of books,
the last thing a student wants to
be told is that they can only pur-
chase S50 worth of books. Last
week, students purchasing
school supplies from The Stu-
dent Stores were told that when
using the Pirate Points card, they
could only make purchases up
to $50 at one time.
Pirate Points, a system es-
tablished several years ago, is
designed for students who
would rather carry a card than
cash. Money is added to the card
to use in The Student Stores,
vending machines and photo-
copying machines. An addi-
tional strip on the card is used
for dining services. Although
money is put on the card for
both the Pirate Points system
and for dining, the money is kept
in separate accounts.
"The benefits of the card
are still semi-the-same said
Michael Coston, director of re-
tail sales of The Student Stores.
"It's a mechanism for being able
to use vending machines with-
out having to carry cash
It sounded like a great idea
to parents who were fearful that
their sons or daughters would
spend their book money on other
things, and it sounded to stu-
dents who thought it would be
easier to carry a single card,
rather that a wallet full of cash.
However, many of these
students became disgruntled
when they were told that they
could only make purchases in
increments of $50. The reason
the employees of The Student
Stores were giving was that a
local employer had complained
that the Pirate Points system was
unfair to their business.
Students questioned who
the "local business" was and
were told it was University Book
Exchange (U.B.E.). Coston con-
firmed that, in fact, U.B.E. had
complained to university offi-
cials that the use of the :ard is
unfair to their business and that
eventually it could lead to an
eventual standstill of their busi-
ness.
"The students have to ex-
clusively buy their books from
The Student Stores said Don
Edwards, owner of U.B.E. "We
don't want a situation where we
are networked out of business
Although They Student
Stores seemed to be taking the
short end of the deal by being
forced to send students away,
some,the Edwards, feel the
blame seems to fall on the shoul-
ders of the ECU administration.
According to Edwards, he had
made every effort with the
university to be part of the
Pirate Points system. Edwards
told The East Carolinian that
Richard Brown, vice-chancel-
lor for business affairs, told
Edwards it was illegal to in-
clude outside businesses in the
system.
Edwards said that other
universities, such as Florida
State University and the Uni-
versity of North Carolina,
have similar systems, and stu-
dents at UNC are allowed to
purchase Domino's pizza with
the card.
Edwards and Coston
both said that the university,
in an effort to appease U.B.E
set the limit on card use to $50.
Edwards said that he did not
suggest that solution and that
his idea of a proper solution
would be to allow U.B.E. and
other off-campus merchants to
use the card.
"The limit was the so-
lution proposed by the uni-
versity Edwards said. "We
have made every effort pos-
sible at ECU to accept any type
of debit system the university
has come up with
Edwards said that U.B.E.
has had to turn students away

Students receive academic guidance
By Wendy Rountree
Staff Writer
Better grades, higher GPAs
and career guidance are some of the
benefits students can receive by
using the services offered from the
newly reorganized Academic Sup-
port and Counseling Center.
Under the direction of the
Undergraduate Studies office, the
center is designed to focus on the
academic problemsof undergradu-
ate students.
"The UNC General Aclminis-
tration said that we will put atten-
tion on undergraduate education
said Dorothy Muller, dean of Un-
dergraduate Studies. "Nationally,
there is an interest to look at under-
graduate education and see what
we are doing and how we can do it
better
The center, located in
Brewster B-103, will be a place where
students can meet individually, or
in group sessions, with full-time
and graduate student counselors.
Also, since the UndergraduateStud-
ies office is using the center as a
connecting base for many academic
departments and other student ser-
vice offices such as the writing cen-
ter, students will be able to use the
center as a referral headquarters to
other areas on campus.
"This is a collaborative effort
throughout campus said Don
Joyner, director of Academic Sup-
portandCounselingCenter. "Obvi-
ously, what we would like to do,
and what I think is most effective, is
one-on-one, but you can't do one-
on-one with 350 to 400 students.
Therefore, what we have to do is
have small groups and refer them
out to different resources on cam-
pus that are here just to help them
The center itself houses career
exploration software for comput-
ers, a TVVCR with videotapes of
Wliere Tliere's a Will There's an A and
Chronicle Occupational Briefs, books
filled with information on many
occupations.
"I'm just very pleased that the
university has seen fit to provide us
with a room and some assistance to
try to begin to do something that I
think we should have done for a
long time Muller said.
Joyner, who was named one
of the Most Outstanding Advisers
last year, said that the center has two
goals. The first is to aid freshmen,
and the second is to aid probation
students.
"Our number one purpose is
that we are trying to intervene in the
academic life of the students before
they get into academic difficulty
Joyner said.
The center was developed to
help students such as freshmen and
students from rural highschools who
could or have fallen behind aca-
demically under the new retention
standards.
"Nationally, we know that
freshmen are at greatest risk during
the first six weeks of their freshman
year Muller said.
Joyner said thatto counter this
problem, the center plans to do Aca-
demic Difficulty Reports(ADRs)rhis
fall on all freshmen. The idea for
ADRs was formed by the ECU Re-
tentionCommitteefromtheFaculty
Center. With help from the Institu-
tional Research Department, thecen-
ter will send ADRs to instructors
who teach all freshmen and keep a
database, listingfreshmanstudents.
The instructors will return the ADRs
to the center with the students' mid-
semester grades wthmmefourth or
fifth week of classes.
"We will have a list of stu-
dents with academic difficulty
Joyner said. "The center will then
contact those students and try to
set them up to come in and talk to
us individually, or we will have
seminars that will help them ad-
just to college
Instructors will also report
on the ADRs whether or not the
students are attending classes
regularly and turning in home-
work.
Joyner said that ADRs al-
low students to see where they
stand in a class before they fall too
far behind.
"The second thing that we
arerryingtodoisdealwithpeople
who are already on probation
Joyner said.
Joyner said that in early
August, the UndergraduateStud-
ies office sent to students return-
ing under probation a letter in-
forming them that they had to
attend probation workshopsdur-
ingAugustor their recordswould
be tagged. The workshops in-
formed students how to get back
into good academic standing.
During the workshops, the
counselors then told students that

Mad scientist wreaks havoc in college lab
Rockefeller University scientists include some of Ore world's
best minds, but researchers there and police say they have been
unable to nab a jealous "mad scientist" who poisoned co-workers,
sent death threats and may have tried to blow up the lab. While
investigators believe they know which of .he approximately 40
postdoctoral fellows and researchers in the molecular biology lab is
behind the crimes, they don't ha ve enough evidence to makeanarrest.
The scientist still works at the lab, and Hill said investigafors.believe
he was motivated by "professional jealousy" toward the two women
scientists who received death threats. The threats and two other
letters sent to the head of the lab, world-renOWhed scientist Robert
Roeder, and to the university, demanded the women quit or be fired
or they would be killed.
Boy, 14, apparently drinks himself to death on cruise
A Long Island 14-year-old apparently dank himsdf to death
aboard a Caribbean cruise ship. Hayman Ronald Lucas, who would
have been a ninth-grader this fall, drank the equivalent of six tum-
blers�about a bottle's worth�of tequila and rum in a two-hour
period, authorities in South Florida believe. Hayman was traveling
With his father and stepmother on a week's cruise out of Miami aboard
the Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas. Hayman was with a half
dozen teens under 18, one 18-year-old and a 24-year-old man, dry-
ing on an upper deck from about 3 a.m. until 5 ajn officials sjjgL.
Police said the 24-year-old Florida man provided the liquor, which he
had bought at a cruise stop in Cozumel, Mexico. Law enforcement
officials Tuesday said they were trying to determine whether there
was any criminal action that led to the death and if so, under whose
jurisdiction the prosecution would fall. Hayman was seen by a ship's
security guard staggering around the deck at about 5:15 a.m. and was
iakenback to his cabin where his father and stepmother put him to bed
on-the floor. At about 8:30 a.m. he vomited, and at 11:15 a.m his
stepmother called the ship's doctors and told them Hayman had
stopped breathing. The doctors were unable to revive Lucas with
cardiopulmonaryresuscitationanddefibrillation.Hewas pronounced
dead at 12:05 p.m. The doctors listed the cause of death as ifttbxkation
With alcohol and aspiration to the lungs. Hayman, who wis 5foot-4
and weighed 195 pounds, was found to have a blood level of 0.29
percent�more than three times the 0.08 level considered drunk in
Florida and almost three times New York's legal intoxication lwjft of
9.10 percent, according to coroner's toxicology experts.

When many of us think of
the traditional midwife, mental
pictures of women wanting to
give birth in the natural setting
of their own home come to mind.
That picture is no longer correct
in the modern profession of mid-
wifery. ECU is the only school in
N.C. that offers a midwifery pro-
gram, which recently received a
federal grant of almost $813,000.
"Midwives are highly
educated qualified practitioners
of women's health care who
typically deliver in hospitals and
birthing centers said Er. Nancy
Moss, director of the School of
Nursing's Master of Science mid-
wifery program. "We do not pro-
vide nurses at home.
The grant money awarded
by the Department of Health and
Human Services will be used to
expand the faculty with two new
faculty, bringing the total to five.
One staff support person will be
added, Moss said. The program
will also expand enrollment from
17 to 24 students over the next
two years. Instruction supplies
and materials will be purchased
as well.
"I'm just thrilled to death
said Dr. Phyllis Horns, dean of
the School of Nursing. "The
school has successfully com-
peted for a grant of this size. It
will certainly allow us to expand
our nurse midwifery option in
our graduate program to hope-
fully better meet the needs of
rural and under served popula
tions in this state, which was the
intent of that program in the first
place
The program was estab-
lished in January, 1992, and is
only offered on the graduate level
to persons who have already ob-
tained a B.S. in Nursing. Once
completed, graduates are then
eligible to take the national exam
for certification, Moss said.
"This program was estab-
lished to help N.C. address N.Cs
high infant mortality and mor-
bidity rate she said.
Moss sees midwifery as a
necessity, because the profession
offers health care to women in
rural areas and accepts types of
medical coverage that many
regular physicians do not. She
also stressed that midwives do
a lot more than aid in child-
birth.
"For the low risk woman
without medical problems, we
provide an alternative to tradi-
tional medical care that empha-
sizes education and preven-
tion Moss said.
Certified midwives of to-
day are designated primary care
providers on the national level
and provide assistance in all as-
pects of gynecology, family
planning and regular check-
ups, she said. Under normal cir-
cumstances, a woman may
never have the need to see a
physician.
Of the 120 hospitals in
N.C, 12 offer midwifery ser-
vices.

"There is a sacrifice when you

not going to have a 4.0 unless you're
innately brilliant saidMcLaughlin.
While some people "measure suc-

Anne Scammom, employer

ton, said the survey hardly applies to
all job-searching students.
Of the companies surveyed, a
high GPA is an important qualifica-
tion in granting an interview. "But
the hot jobs today are often with
small- and medium-sized compa-
nies not large corporations

of Texas Austin, said the results of
the study surprised her. "I certainly

strong message is that experience is
the key to get out there
Most companies wanta "more
well-rounded experience" in a new
hire, Nelsen said. Employers will
wonder how students without job
experience will perform on the job
when they havetojugglemany roles.
Scammon agreed, saying
GPAs matter only for certain techni-
cal careers, such as engineering and
accounting. "If you'regoing tobuild

Students in more people-ori-

public relations, need "softer skills
she said.
Generally, student leaders
should not worry about being un-
employed after college because they
will land almost as many offers as
high GPA students, Oh said.
Overall, those companies in-
terviewed have increased recruit-
ing by 8.4 percent since 1993. More
than 60 percent of 120 undergradu-
ates surveyed said they have held
an internship or a co-op job during

Almost half of all college stu-

modest about.
"In exercise and sport sci-

education, demographics would
suggest that there is going to be a
demand for teachers, particularly
in the eastern part of the US
Zauner said.
He believes that all of the pro-

to thechanging attitude of modern
America.
"These programs, for the
most part, relate to personal
wellness, and have really become a
part of the national thrust to take

Woodstock offered volunteer experience
(CPS) � Earlier this year,
Jason Gold and Jennifer Freiman
did not have any plans to go to
Woodstock'94,butwhen they heard
about an opportunity to get some
practical experience in their field,
the three-day festival of peace, love
and music becamepart of their sum-
mer plans.
Gold and Freiman are doctor-
ate students in clinical psychology
at Long Island University (LIU).
After the spring semester ended,
they learned that one of their profes-
sors, Dr. Paul Ramirez, was looking
for volunteers to attend Woodstock.
As part of "The Family of
Woodstock a volunteer group set
up to assist those attending the con-
cert, clinical psychology students
would work with mobile medical
teams to ensure that people suffer-
ing from psychological problems
ranging from culture shock to drug
overdose would get the necessary
attention.

"It seemed like a really inter-
esting way to apply what we were
studying says Freiman, 25. "The
fact that it was Woodstock made it
even more interesting
Freiman,Goldandsevenother
students from LIU arrived at the
concert site in Saugerties on Thurs-
day morning. The employee camp,
home tomore than9,000 employees
and volunteers, was almost two
miles from the concert site. "There
was some housing there but not
much says Gold. "There were
some tents with these bunkbed
things in them, but we brought a
tent so we decided to use it"
After a brief orientation, Gold
and Freiman learned their shift
would be from 2:30 a jrt. to 9:00 a jn.
Friday and Sunday. They took a
nap and then headed to the shuttle
buses that would take them to the
medical tent near me main stage.
"I didn't really know that to
expect says Freiman. "We were
kind of isolated from the rest of the
crowd, so I had no idea how many
people were there
As the school bus pulled into
the main concert area, Gold and
Freiman realized they had a rough
weekend ahead of them. "There
were people all over the place says
Gold. "The security force was com-
pletely understaffed, so we spent
most of the night standing by the
buses telling people where they
could put their tents
After their stint as tour guides
ended, the twoLIU students headed
to the medical tent, where they
helped calm lost concert-goers.
Less than two days later, after
an estimated 150,000 gate crushers
brought the attendance figures near
400,000, the problems that occurred
on Friday were more frequent and
more severe. On Sunday morning,
Gold and Freiman walked through
thecrowdwithwalkie-talkies,help-
ing anyone that stumbled across
their path.
"It seemed like the organizers
weren't really prepared for all the
people, even before everyone came
in for free says Gold. "I guess that
considering the circumstances,
which were pretty horrendous, it
could have been a lot worse. But it
was still bad. After the rain, it be-
came more of a survival test than a
concert
By as early as Friday evening,
the festival's 1,200 medical person-
nel were completely overwhelmed.
At one point on Saturday night, the
first aid tents and on-site hospital
were treating a new patient every
20 seconds, most of them suffering
from drug overdoses,brokenbones,
fatigue, hunger and anxiety.
While Gold says that most of
his attention was focused on assist-
ing lost individuals, there were a
variety of other conditions.
"I saw some people who were
on really bad acid trips he says.
"You can't really do too much for
them. You just help them ride it out
and reassure them that it's eventu-
ally going to end
Freiman had her share offec-

Click It or Ticket" works
By Patrick Hinson
Staff Writer
All those roadblocks that
ECU students had to drive
through this summer at least pro-
vided some good news for the
state of North Carolina as seat
belt violators have become harder
to find and a variety of criminal
offenders havebeenapprehended
by the focused attention on delin-
quent and otherwise unlawful
drivers.
While waiting through the
roadblocks is often an inconve-
nience for the average driver, they
are keeping the right people on
the road and taking the wrong
people off.
NorthCarolina law enforce-
ment officials and the NorthCaro-
lina State Highway Patrol recently
completed their second year of
the "Click It or Ticket" campaign,
part of the Governor's planned
five-year Highway Safety Initia-
tive. The "Click-It-Or-Ticket"
phase of the program began in
September of 1993 and lasted
through this past July.
"This phase of the cam-
paign focused on enhancing the
use of the seatbelt by the average
driver, and as a public education
measure to remind drivers that
wearing the seatbelt while driv-
ing is the law in North Carolina
said Frank Smith, assistant pub-
lic information for the Governor's
Highway Safety Initiative.
Law enforcement officials,
working closely with the
Governor's office, initiated the
campaign to help cut down on
the enormous number of traffic
fatalities in the state each year, as
well as money spent by the tax-
payer on those accidents and se-
rious injuries that could have
been avoided had the victims
been wearing seatbelts.
The campaign proved
more than successful, however,
as it apprehended over 1,000
drunken drivers, 34 fugitives
from the law, 42 stolen vehicles,
258 drug violations and 5,456
drivers without licenses. The last
week of the campaign lasted from
July 11 to July 31, with officers
conducting a total of 2,938 check-
points.
"We feel this campaign has
proven itself very successful in
North Carolina Smith said.
"The next phase starts in No-
vember, and will focus on ap-
prehending and convicting those
caught driving while impaired
Earlier this month, N.C.
law enforcement officers, re-
searchers and members of the
armed forces testified on North
Carolina drunk driving.
"They were testifying
about the statistics of drunk driv-
ing in N.C. and what needs to be
done with the 21-34 year old driv-
ers Smith said.
While the next phase will fo-
cus on apprehending drunk driv-
ers, the law officers will continue
to look for seatbelt violators. Smith
said he feels certain that more night
checkpoints will be added for the
next phase to target drunk drivers.
The "Click It or Ticket" pro-
gram showed an 80 percent rise in
seat belt use by North Carolina
drivers. Officers issued 22,010 seat
belt citations, as well as 1,463 tick-
ets because of children riding im-
properly, without regulation child
seats. Enforcing the seat belt laws
also sa'e time in tracking down
fugitive criminals.
According to Smith, N.C. of-
ficers report that it has become more
difficult recently to find seat-belt
violators since the beginning of the
campaign.
"We feel this is one indicator
of mounting success he said.
The "Click It or Ticket" cam-
paign saved North Carolinians
more than $51 million in in Health
Care and other costs as a result of
increased seat belt use.
The $25 fines that people paid
for not buckling up all went to local
schools. The total campaign pro-
vided more than $1 million to local
school districts.

who were trying to purchase the
books using the Pirate Points
card.
"We didn't think it was fair
that student after student would
come in with Pirate Points
Edwards said.
Like Edwards, Coston was
being forced to rum students
away, but for different reasons.
Students who chose to purchase
books and supplies from The
Student Stores may have noticed
a letter on every register written
by Coston. The letter explained
that due to a complaint by a local
merchant, the Student Stores
would be limiting purchases.
Many students wanted to make
back-to-back purchases on sepa-
rate tickets, but Coston said stu-
dents had to go to a separate line
to make additional purchases.
Coston felt that if The Student
Stores allowed back-to-back
sales, they would be circumvent-
ing the system.
The East Carolinian ran a cou-
pon in the August 24 edition of the
paper for $5 off each $75 purchase.
With the limit set on the Pirate
Points purchases, the coupon
seemed useless for purchasing
books. Coston said that students
were told to save receipts and that
credit would be added to their
cards.
"I regret any inconvenience
that this has caused the stu-
dents Coston said. "I offer a
sincere apology that the limit has
caused mem
Edwards agreed with
Coston that students play the most
valuable role in their business and
that neither merchant is trying to
inconvenience the students.
"It is in the students' best
interest to let the card be accepted
everywhere Edwards said.
Edwards wondered what
would happen if The Student
Stores were closed during a time
that U.B.E. was open or if U.B.E.
had a used copy and The Student
Stores had only new copies. Pirate
Points users, he said, were limited
to purchase from The Student
Stores.
"It is in the absolute best in-
terest of the consumer for the card
to be available as many places as
possible Edwards said. "We
want to accept as many payment
methods as we can

Lack of organization shown in construction
If you have traveled this summer, as
people are known to do, then undoubtedly
you have come across many of those orange
signs announcing ongoing construction. At
the end of every work zone is one that reads
"End Construction While this is meant to
be an announcement, it is tempting to take
this up as a rallying cry.
Many who returned to Greenville this fall
have been shocked at all the changes which
are occurring-in eastern North Carolina.
Unfortunately, these changes are not the ones
for which we might have hoped, such as
cooler weather, shorter lines or lower book
prices.
Instead, we have to learn to navigate the
maze of construction sites on campus. At the
beginning of the school year, there were about
27 construction or improvement projects
ongoing on ECU property. When taken
individually, each one of these projects has
: something to commend it. Many are even
long past due. However, taken in their totality
the projects are throwing the community into
. an uproar.
There is one project that surely we could
do without. The construction of the new traffic
light at 10th Street in front of Christenbury is
both unnecessary and poorly timed. Even if
the Department of Transportation (DOT)
really felt that such a light was needed, why
1 in the world would they begin construction
Oh it on the first day of classes? This has
, created a terrible situation for motorists,
cyclists and pedestrians. Would not it have
made more sense to build such a light earlier
in the summer, perhaps even between the
second summer session and the beginning of
fall classes?
We at The East Carolinian would normally
ask who was in charge of organizing all of
these projects. However, it is self-evident
that no one has been organizing much of
anything. The projects are nearly
overlapping, thrown together haphazardly
and making progress across campus much
more difficult. Usually itis only new students
who deserve college credit for learning their
way around campus. Now even the old hands
are having to cope with all the restricted
access, closed roads and renovated sidewalks.
Moreover, with enrollment increasing, more
students and more cars are trying to move
through smaller bottlenecks, with the
inevitable traffic jams.
None of this seems to be the way to go
about managing a university. Clearly, some
sort of coordination is needed to clear up the
confusion and chaos. While the
administration has been doing a
commendable job in getting these necessary
projects, such as the Joyner Library
renovation and expansion and the new
Student Rec Center, approved and underway
in such a short period of time, the apparent
lack of a cohesive strategy overshadows at
this time the good that will come of these
projects.

should be lowered to
accommodate females. To do
this would risk lives on the
battlefield. If a lady can prove
that she has what the occupation
demands, she deserves to be
�given the chance to serve.
Probably the most
; convincing historical proof that
:women can effectively
participate in combat can be
found in the annals of World
War II history. British and
Russian women flew fighter
planes against Germans with
success. The F.ussians had three
all-female regiments of combat
aircraft that fought in the fiercest
air battles of the war. They flew
over 24,000 sorties and d ropped
at least three million tons of
bombs on an enemy that
they are calmer in battle and
more concerned for one
another's welfare. The men are
much more impulsive
Our own history has its share
of female fighters. Molly Pitcher
is a name that is synonymous
with wartime heroics. During the
Revolutionary War she risked
her life to aid wounded troops in
battle. During theCivil War, over
400 women served in the Union
Army, disguised as men.
American military actions in
Grenada, the bombing of Libya,
Panama and the Gulf War found
women in the forefront of the
hostilities.
I do not concede that
qualified females should be
intermingled with men on the
front lines. The Israelis
attempted this in 1948, with
negative results. Failure
resulted not because Israeli
women refused to fight, but
because female casualties
demoralized the men and
deflated unit cohesion. Our
military should allow for
qualified females to be place in
all female combat units, just as
the Russians did in World War
II.
An obstacle is that generally
women are not as strong as men.
An infantryman's equipment
pack weighs on average 110
pounds, and tank rounds weigh
between 50-100 pounds. This is
a problem, since one study
found that only 18 percent of
female recruits could lift
between 50-100 pounds. In 1989,
Canada recruited 88 women for
infantry training � only one
completed the training. But they
did better elsewhere. In the
artillery, six of 29 finished
training, and were placed in
artillery units. As far as other
less physically demanding
military positions are
concerned, there is now reason
to preclude their service. As a
matter of fact, smaller size and
greater flexibility are assets in
tanks and aircraft, where
strength in not a requirement.
While the vast majority of
female candidates for infantry
service would not make the
grade, there are those few who
would pass with flying colors.
Other jobs requiring less
physical strength should not
illogically prohibit female
participation. Denying females
the opportunity to serve in any
capacity is commensurate to
denouncing their status as
citizens in the land of
opportunity � the United States
of America.
The news on the issue of
abortion has not been very
cheerful lately. Not that it ever
is, but recently events have been
particularly distressing.
I speak mostly of the recent
killing of an abortion doctor and
his bodyguard by a member of a
pro-life group. This came hard
upon the heals of another trial
of a pro-life activist who also
killed an abortion doctor last
year. The issue of abortion is
threatening to begin another
civil war in our fair country,
something about which we all
must be concerned.
The ultimate problem with
the issue of abortion is that, like
slavery, there is very little room
for middle ground. It is nigh
impossible to see any hope for
compromise between the two
competing ideologies.
Moreover, the hatred and
intolerance on both sides is
spilling over into all levels of
political discourse.
Before I get any further into
this discussion, fairness obliges
me to state my prejudices in
advance. I am against abortions
being performed. I believe that
unborn children have every
right to life that any living
person has.
Having said the above, I am
also unalterably opposed to
using violence, or even
disobeying the law in any way,
as a weapon against this
practice. If one wishes to claim
to be pro-life, as the two recent
murderers have claimed, then
one is obligated to respect all
life, not merely those lives that
one considers worthwhile.
Unfortunately, as the debate
over abortion becomes more
immoderate, such extreme
ideologies will only become
more appealing. The idea of
killing abortionists to save
unborn children, taken only on
a superficially logical level, has
an undeniable appeal. The
argument goes something like
this: The abortion doctor is going
to commit murder. Since we
know this in advance, we have
an obligation to do everything
in our power to prevent this
awful occurrence. If, to use their
favorite analogy, one saw a man
advancing toward a five-year
old child with murderous intent,
would one not be justified in
shooting the would-be murderer
before he could accomplish his
goal? However, the two acts,
murder and abortion, are not
legally or morally equivalent
The whole ideological
underpinning of the pro-life
movement is that it is not for
man to decide what sort of life is
worthwhile, that God alone can
make those sorts of judgments.
To take the law into one's own
hands is to usurp the authority
of God.
The appeal of such extreme
ideologies will only grow as the
more radical membersof the pro-
life movement become
increasingly frustrated. This
frustration is being fueled by
recent government actions which
have been on the side of the pro-
choice side. The election of Bill
Clinton, end of the so-called Gag
Rule and recent use of the RICO
statute against pro-life protesters
have only made the members of
the movement feel that they may
be losing the war.
Such a belief may cause
desperation to set in, which will
only make a resort to violence
easier. Historically, people who
believe both that right is on their
side and that their position nearly
By W. Brian Hall
hopeless, have been willing to
commit unthinkable atrocities.
Most of the recent debate
over the issue of abortion has
been focused on the courts. The
Supreme Court, since its Roe v.
Wade decision in the 1970s, has
been the main policy-setting
body for America on this issue,
as it has repeatedly handed
down opinions regarding
various laws. This has resulted
in the dramatic increase in the
politicization of the judiciary,
as both sides struggle to have
jurists of their beliefs appointed
to the courts.
This appeal to the courts, to
settle what should be political
questions, is what is at the heart
of the growing extremism on all
sides. As long as the decision on
the legality of abortion is left up
to the nine justices of the
Supreme Court (and in reality
only five of them, since that is
all that it takes to make a
majority), then the debate will
never modify, because this gives
the appearance of being
undemocratic. Since abortion is
not expressly mentioned in the
Constitution, the best thing that
the Court could do is not look
for it there. If, as would
undoubtedly happen in nearly
every case, a majority of the
people, or their representatives,
in each state decided that
abortion should be legal, then
the radical pro-life would have
little about which to complain
Abortion involves two of the
most important beliefs to all
Americans: the desire to not
have government interfere in
our private lives, and the desire
to protect the lives of our young.
The only fit place to decide such
important questionj. is in our
existing political bodies.

A Drop
in the
Bucket
By Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
IS
"A Drop in the Bucket
just what it claims to be: a very
tiny drop in the great screaming
bucket of American media opin-
ion. Take it as you will.
I have now written film
reviews for over five years, in-
cluding both my time at The
East Carolinian and my tenure
at The Pitt News during my un-
dergraduate days at the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh. One ques-
tion that I have constantly had
to fend off during this time re-
lates to why I feel my views
contain more validity than any-
one else's views. As a corollary
to this I have had to explain
innumerable times about what
a critic's job entails.
To answer the first ques-
tion, which is usually asked
with some amount of rancor, I
simply point out that I hold my
opinion neither higher nor
lower than any other human
being's opinion. An opinion is
one of the most personal assets
an individual can possess. Some
opinions contain more ad-
vanced thoughtthanothers,but
the opinion itself is neither good
nor bad except as judged by the
person rendering that opinion.
Thus when I set out to put
my opinion in type for all to
see, or all who care to see, I
must be firmly convinced that
my opinion rates the same as
anyone else's. If I do not assure
myself of this then every attack
on my views will be taken per-
sonally and I would quickly
have to stop writing reviews.
The more important point
that I rarely get to discuss in
enough detail with people is
the one concerning the role of a
critic. So many disparaging
commentsare made about crit-
ics that one would be led to
believe that they serve no use-
ful purpose in this world other
than to create feelings of ani-
mosity.This view, though com-
mon, is unfortunately shallow
and incorrect.
A critic, when working
properly, will explain his feel-
ings well enough for the reader
to carry on a mental conversa-
tion with the writer. Critics who
state their likes and dislikes
with no supporting evidence
discredit the profession for a
critic's job is to incite thought.
A critical review should engage
the reader in such a way that he
can follow the lines of reason
that the writer uses, then find
where those reasons disagree

ECU offers
By Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
Second- or third-run movies. Little-
known folk singers. Foreign "art" films.
Academic speakers. Non-alcoholic
Halloweenbashes. Bowling.
These are the types of activities ECU
students have come to associate with the
Student Union and Mendenhall Student
Activity Center. Starting this fall, how-
ever, the Student Union wants to change
its image a bit. All of the above activities
should continue, but the Student Union
also hopes that their new attractions will
bring students out to these campus-spon-
sored events.
The first of these new events is the
"An Evening With series, which will
bring nationally-known musicians, co-
medians and other entertainers to ECU.
Already lined up for the Fall semester are
blues guitarist John Mayall, comedienne
Marsha Warfield (who played Roz on
entertainment for
NBC's "Night Court"), and infamous
food-projectile comic Gallagher. Other
artists are being negotiated with at
present.
Another interesting attraction for the
fall is the "NoonDay Tunes" series, which
will feature mostly local musicians play-
ing 90-minute, on-campus sets at mid-
day. The first of these artists was Jim
Mulvaney, who played from 11:30p.m.
until 1:00p.m. last Wednesday andThurs-
day. Scheduled for September are local
blues guitarist Lightnin' Wells and Jim
Swenson.
The ECU Performing Arts series will
be presenting the play "My Fair Lady" in
November, and hosting the Russian Na-
tional Orchestrain January. More imme-
diately, ECU will play host to theCapitol
Steps, a comedy group that specializes in
political satire, on September 30.
The Travel-Adventure Film series
alsocontinues, with films thisyear taking
trips to such exotic places as the Biblical
lands, Bali, and Canada.
Even the Hendrix Theatre free movies
aregettingaface-lift This fall, Hendrix will
play host to four theme weeks, featuring
movies that will revolve around a single
topic. First up is "When the Music Mat-
tered a week of movies centered around
the 60's that kicks off with a speech from
lecturer Barry Drake on September 7-Mov-
ies featured will include Woodstock (which
will be shown on the mall), Alice's Restau-
rant and Hair (a controversial film when
first released, Hair now only rates a mild
PG-13). Other theme weeks include "Cul-
tural Film Week" (featuring Kenneth
Branaugh's recent Much Ado About Noth-
ing), "Midnight Madness" on the week of
Halloween, featuring perennial HBO fa-
vorite The Hitcher, and, finally, "The
Nouveau New Wave with La Femme
Nikita, the French film upon which Bridget
Fonda's Point of No Return was based.
Other performers and lecturers willbe
appearing throughout the school year.

Natural Born Killers breaks taboos and stuns audiences
By Gregory Dickens
Staff Writer
With Natural Born Killers,
Oliver Stone destroys the stan-
dard storytelling format of main-
stream cinema.
Using editing and photo-
graphic techniques honed with
JFK, his blitzkrieg sermon of how
the assassination could've oc-
curred, Stone puts to use an array
of tricks including rear projection,
super 8 and 30 mm film, com-
puter embellishment and anima-
tion to tell the story of Mickey and
Mallory, how they killed 52
people and the impact on the
media's attention on them. While
the film only took 53 days to shoot,
editing required 11 months.
Stone's camera tricks are their
world, a ramshackle saturnalia of
input that stupefies the audience
with its constant quick flow and
churns that mimics both the dis-
associated fervor of their journey
and the swell of violence the two
ride but don't control. With a
soundtrack produced by Nine
Inch Nails' Trent Reznor that
samples Cohen, Dylan, Reznor,
the Shangri-Las, and the Cowboy
Junkies' version of Lou Reed's
"Sweet Jane you'd think
Mickey's right when he declares
the end of the world's coming.
Killers is apocalyptic, visceral
thrills. The barrage of images
aren't to shock, they're to illumi-
nate the nuances within each
moment of the film, every one
crucial to the raging climax. Think
Lynch's bizarre suburb in Blue
Velvet. Think the psychedelic per-
spective of Alan Parker's Pink
Floyd the Wall. Think Stone's The
Doors. Scorsese's Raging Bull and
Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.
The first scene is historic. In a
diner in the middle of the South-
west, Mickey and Mallory slaugh-
ter patron and employee alike in
a child-like bully session, a lethal
bout of freeze tag just for the hell
of it. Is it the energy of being
caught up in the music Mallory
gyrates to or is it something to kill
the boredom? Beats me. But
Stone's in control and the result is
a manic choreography of slow-
motion deaths and opera spliced
with rock. The last survivor is
determined by Mallory's "Eenie-
Meenie-Minie-Mo which seem-
ingly lasts for days as the two
subjects shiver and beg. It's be-
witching and fearsome and sets
the stage for the film to follow.
Mallory 0uliette Lewis) is the
oldest of two in the nuclear fam-
ily and her home life is not the
sweetness and light of Robert
Young and Ozzie Nelson. Dar-
ingly filmed as "I Love Mallory
her pre-Mickey world is a variant
of "I Love Lucy" or "Leave It To
Beaver" complete with low-
grade film, stage flats for walls
and a laugh track. Except this
setting is a thin disguise of how
life should and could be if not for
the intrusion of reality's unpleas-
antness. Her family barks and
whines at each other, the father
Qesus, it's Rodney Dangerfield
and he's perfect) is an corpulent,
violent and incestuous goblin
who promises to have Mallory
after she showers as the laugh
track gives its approval in what
would be an obvious nesting
place for a punch line. He spews
and yells at Mother (Edie
McClurg) and Young Son, who's
done up in KISS make-up. Enter
her knight-in-shining-armor in
the form of butcher deliverer,
Mickey Knox (Woody
Harrelson), a boy of a man who's
been slapped and shocked in up-
bringing by events that, in the
perfect world, would never in-
trude into idyllic adolescence.
With cliched flirting and the
"oohs and ahhs" of the laugh
track, the two are out the door for
a night of sweet relief from the
Great Unwashed in their lives.
Later, when Mickey busts in
to take Mallory away, it's under-
taken with swift and efficient dis-
posal of what made life so wrong.
Father is bludgeoned and
drowned while Mallory cel-
ebrates like a child, leaping and
giggling. Mom is tied to the bed
and set aflame and Young Son
is set free, grinning like a loon
as the fire of violence (or is it
Mom still roasting?) flashes in
front of his eyes. The two tear
off into the night in Daddy's car
with the world-to-be, the real-
ity that wasn't, shooting by on
projection screens and
rock'n'roll blasting in their
heads.
The tricks Stone employs
are to paint a portrait of the
shambles their minds are in and

I've often dismissed the
North Carolina music scene as a
wasteland of lame REM
wannabes; if the Connells and
Dillon Fence are the best we have
to offer, I've reasoned, perhaps
it's best that we remain obscure.
Thank God, then, for Merge

sary compilation CD, Five Rows

based label whose slogan, as
expressed on their promotional
t-shirts, is "Merge Records:

country tones of Lambchop to
the crunchy metallic guitars of

tion to find their place in the new
world order they strive for. They
want to live out their lives in an
unstoppable, omnipresent love-
with-a-capital-L. Mallory's adrift
in Mickey's words of their search
as Fate. He's an acid-eating,
Rambo Svengali and Mallory is
the accomplice for their crime
spree and the inspiration for his
drive. "You can't stop fate. No
one can he says. The ads show
Mickey, bareheaded and simper-
ing wearing rose-tinted glasses
reflecting the image of Mallory in
a blonde wig. While the image
may be a direct, macho presenta-
tion of Harrelson in an a ttempt to
lure in the dough, it's also a per-
fect symbol of why they're on the
loose and packing heat.
Mickey envisions a world
that he's always wanted. Love
and acceptance and quiet, a Gar-
den of Eden where Mallory is
dolled up in what my best friend
astutely calls an obsession with
living up to the images of beauty
and sex appeal in everything from
Vogue to Barbie. fhe two Knoxes,
who marry each other on a deliri-
ously-shot suspension bridge, are
adult children chasing image af-
ter image of what they want them-
selves and the world to be.
Mallory asks him if she's still
attractive to him when he starts
to look for women to kidnap. They
screw in front of a hostage, and
when Mickey is more turned on
by the fantasizing of their guest,
Mallory rides off to a gas station,
where she slides across a Cor-
vette hood and spreads her legs
like every sexy picture she's ever
seen in Cosmo or Hot Rod to see if
the attendant finds her attractive.
As soon as he recognizes her from
the media blitz, she kills him, frus-
trated that the image of a killer
has interfered with her pursuit of
living the image of a woman.
Their media image cuts both
ways. While it's inconvenient
when they're on the loose, dodg-
ing police and informants, it's a
toy to play with upon being cap-
tured. They mug for the camera
and are treated like celebrities who
cheer their every word. Far-
fetched? Not when highways were

tive white

Bronco on na-
tional televi-
sion last July.
Their
violence,
however, is
not a side ef-
fect of apathy
for life and
mankind, but
an efficient
way of ban-
ishing that lmm
which threat-
ens to smear their effort to recre-
ate their world. Stone knows bet-
ter titan to let loose angels of death
selecting victims at random. When
Mickey accidentally kills a Na-
vajo who has taken them in, im-
mediately they recognize that the
murder was wrong because he
didn't deserve it. However, fools
are not suffered and they get put
down hard by the eager couple.
This eagerness to pull the trigger
and the celerity of the deed is what
attracts the media, including USA
Today, Esquire and Newsweek, and
specifically Wayne Gale (the ever-
surprising Robert Downey Jr.), a
dead-on amalgamation of the
Geraldos and Australian titillation
maestros in the tabloid media. Gale
is the host, producer and writer of
American Maniacs (sure, snicker,
but it's less than an inch away
from the blatant subtlety of present
shows). He's on their trail for the
ratings just as Officer Scagnetti
(Tom Sizemore) is after them for
the boost to his image as a
Serpicoesque wonder cop.
Scagnetti is a bold character, vio-
lent to be violent, and less sympa-
thetic than the Knoxes even
though he's a cop. The Knoxes
waste 52 people in two weeks.
That's money for both men.
Upon their capture (a whop-
per that lives up to the rest of the
movie), Gale ingratiates himself
with McCluskey, their warden, to
snaga live television interview with
Mickey after the Super Bowl.
McCluskey
(an unrecog-
n i z a b 1 e
Tommy Lee
Jones) is a
screaming,
spittle-filled
turnkey who
relishes the
power over
his inmates
and is terri-
fied of what
B� would hap-
pen if they got
loose and came after him, an event
he feels is inevitable. The inter-
view is to take place before Mickey
is to undergo shock therapy. Both
men plan to allow the Knoxes to
escape and kill them on live televi-
sion in an obvious boon for both
men.
Here is where your contro-
versy will originate. What ensues
is an explosion of metaphors and
drama that either contradict or
carry each other, depending on the
viewers' ability to suspend their
disbelief. Questions will abound
as to the likelihood of the climactic
events versus license given to make
a point. Either way, the last half -
hour of Natural Born Killers is the
most damning commentary on
various media and pop psychol-
ogy theory ever unleashed on film.
Stone will catch Hell for using
violence to attract audiences to wit-
ness his denouncement of violence
in the media. It s a necessary evil to
make a point and, oddly enough,
Stone says he wasn't trying to be
satirical.
"It began as a surreal thing
he says. But with the Menendez
trial and the Simpson story, the
unfathomable attractiveness of
(sing it with me) "senseless and
brutal murders" to primetime tele-

vision audiences can't be ignored
by Killers' buckshot blast at the
origins of violence. But the movie
is, at heart, the most originally
executed love story I've ever seen.
No wonder, since it's based on a
Quentin Tarantino story (as was
the similar True Romance). The
two tear through their relation-
ship)� the initial plethora of sac-
charine mooning leading to testi-
ness, jealousy, doubt and even-
tual reconciliation� and the
murders are strangely detached
from their bond. It's a means to
an end, not a necessary compo-
nent of the relationship. In fact,
they want to stop killing and will
just as soon as they can get away
from those who seem to deserve
it so badly. They even view death,
present in every scene in blood
and shells, as a solace where they
can be free, if the world beats
them down.

and Lewis are the perfect casting
choices for Killers. Mickey and
Mallory are babes (granted,
slightly bent babes) hunted by
three men wanting to flex their
power by exploiting the couple.
It's them versus the world and
neither the actors nor Stone want
to take the easy road by letting
them smile sweetly at the camera
and pull the trigger, letting the
visual irony carry the characters.
It's not that simple, and it would
be a blasphemous cop-out.
Harrelson and Lewis can do no
better, especially Lewis, who tends
to let pouting and significant
pauses drag her characters
through her previous movies.
She's tells Mickey of dreaming of
him with horses and angels�the
stuff of young girls' dreams. Their
sense of wonder at what they don't
know of the world is intact. That's
what drives Killers. They don't
want to lose their dreams to the
world outside their car and hearts,
even in the face of the jaded and .
petty they encounter and, yes, kill.
This is a tabloid minded Breakfast
Club. Reality Bites as Reality Bites,
Pisses off Young Love and Gets It
Between the Eyes.
Using blood as a symbol of
both a bond and the methods used
to preserve that love, the script's
heart will be buried in hype. Kill-
ers will be fought over, praised,
decried and debated for a long
time. Stone will be vilified and
championed. And all the while,
after the points have been de- '
bated, televisions will be watched
and the media which Stone tears
down in Killers will be adored by
those who slobber over re-enacted
rapes and deaths and think them-
selves too good to sit through this
movie.
Their loss and, sadly, those
who need it the most will not get
the point.

playing cover material from their
early days as a Southern California
dub and backup band, brought a
respectable passion and eloquence
to Henley's solo material and the
material from Frey and Walsh that
would follow later in the show. My
only criticism of the concert was that
they did this solo material too often.
Walsh continued the solo trend
with his "Ordinary Average Guy

Walsh and the band hammed it up

"One of These Nights" took the
group into intermission. The band
had already played at a level that
would satisfy most music lovers for
a whole show, but the first set was
only a hint of what was yet to come.
The band returned with an
acoustic version of 'Tequila Sun-

bringing a husky but soulful tint to
the number. The Eagles proved they
are the best "oooh and ahhh" band
around on this number with Frey,

gorgeous background vocal palette.

Schmidt once again stepped to the
forefront with a new song entitled
"Love Will Keep Us Alive (If this
isn't a number one hit, I've never
heard one.)
After thisnew offering, theband
began to once again jump on thesolo
train with an acoustic version of
Henley's "Heart of the Matter This
was the highlight of the solo offer-
ings by far with the Creek crowd
belting out the songs chorus of "For-
giveness" at the top of their lungs.
Frey then took the mic with his "You
Belong to the City" of Miami Vice
fame. While the performance of this
tune was right off the record, I could
have survived without it. Henley's
"Boys of Summer" and a rocking
versionofWalsh's "Funk49"brought
the crowd to its feet. Versions of
"Smuggler's Blues "Life's Been
Good" and " All She Wants To Do is
Dance" finished off the solo material
and made me quite ready to hear
more Eagles' songs.
The group obliged with "Heart-
ache Tonight" and "Life in the Fast
Lane" ending the second set. The
crowd cheered the band to its first
encore, which started with another
new song called "Get Over It sung
by Henley. This upbeat number is
another sure hit and is about a soci-
ety that has become hooked on
therapy, litigation and excuses.
Sound familiar?
Ending the first encore was a
simply beautiful rendition of "Des-
perado The fatigue in Henley's
voice brought a rasp and a struggle
that added to the song's message of
desperation. The Eagles exited the

with his own. A good film review,
or any other type of review, helps a
reader more clearly define his feel-
ings toward a work of art. By find-
ing fault with a critic he is forcing
himself to reanalyze the film to
more clearly define what aspects of
the work affected him, or did not
affect him as the case may be.
A quality film critic can often
add to the reader's knowledge by
comparing arecentfilm with other,
older films. The highest level of
film watching is syntopical, i.e. re-
lating what one has watched to
other films that may be trying to
convey similar thoughts and ideas.
Hopefully, a film critic has seen
enough films to make compari-
sons so that a reader may begin to
amass his own cinematic store of
knowledge. A viewer may love a
film like Father of the Bride, but
once he knows that an original
exists with even more nuances and
better actors, thenhe may view the
remake with a little less enthusi-
asm.
All the forgoing discussion as-
sumes that a viewer sees a film as
a work of art. I deliberately refer to
any cinematic work with artistic
integrity as a film instead of a
movie. Books are not called printies
and quality films should not be
called movies simply because
movement occurs on screen. The
movement on the screen is the low-
est level at which to view a film,
with entertainment value being
only slightly above that. Though
films can be entertaining, if this is
their sole reason for being, they
will quickly be forgotten.
I remember a film teacher who
related the story of a good student
talking to him following the
completion of the course. The stu-
dent told the professor that she
really got a lot from his class, but
she could not watch films the same
way he did because she "enjoyed
them
A common misconception
about critics is that they look for
ways to tear apart a film. Quite the
contrary is true; a critic is con-
stantly searching for the next great
work of art that will enrich his.life,
stir his soul, and remind him of his
connectedness with all humanity.
Another big misconception is
that critics sit analyzing a film
while it is running. This notion has
arisen that being critical is a horrid
way to watch a film because you
never "enjoy" the film. But critical
lrJrJrJrJrJrl
opinions usually only form after
the final credits have rolled and
the film begins to be assimilated
by the viewer. Only then do con-
nections start to form and opin-
ions begin to take shape. Some-
times a truly awful film can be
sensed before it finishes, but good
critics will allow the film to run its
course before forming final opin-
ions.
I love film and one of the rea-
sons I like to write is that it allows
me the time to concretely form
ideas about the film. Saying that
one likes a film because of its hu-
mor is on'y the beginning of un-
derstanding the film, and by natu-
ral consequence oneself.
The reasons the film makes
one laugh need to be explored to
understand what the artists be-
hind the film did well and why
their techniques helped one to
laugh. One needs to explore one's
reaction to any work of art. Oscar
Wilde succinctly states this when
he says: "The supreme vice is shal-
lowness. Whatever realized is
right
Critics can serve an ex-
tremely useful purpose in our
multi-media world. Too often
we move from one entertain-
ment source to the next, "chan-
nel surfing" if you will, with
little thought as to why some
entertainment works better than
others.
We too frequently settle for
the easy entertainment source
instead of challenging ourselves
with works of true art. A critic
should not provide a scorecard
of films because often the viewer
disagrees with the critic. But in a
well-substantiated disagree-
ment comes self-awareness and
that is where a critic's real work
lies.
Hopefully I will have less
questions this term about the
role of critics and less belliger-
ent attitudes toward my views.
But even with the complaints I
hear about critics I will still write.
I write, quite simply, because I
love film. I hope that some of
that love is evident as I write
reviews for the paper.

New volleyball coach hopeful for success
By John Gilger
Staff Writer
Less than a week before their season
opener, a new attitude has surfaced with
the East Carolina volleyball squad, one of
dedication and desire.
The new attitude begins with first-
year Head Coach Gail Guttenberg and trick-
les down to the 10 returning letter winners
from last season's 11-24 squad.
Guttenberg takes over the helm of
ECU's volleyball program after the four-
year reign of Martha McCaskill. Guttenberg
was named head coach this summer, mak-
ingthejump from the NAIAranksofJudson
College. Injust two seasons, she guided the
Lady Eagles from the predominant cellar
in the Northern Illinois Intercollegiate Con-
ference to a second place finish.
Guttenberg, who has been impressed
with the desire and work ethics of the
squad, sees no reason why the Lady Pirates
cannot turn the tables on the Lady Pirates'
misfortune of four consecutive losing sea-
sons.
"Tie ability and intensity are there
to win Guttenberg said. "I just hope
that we can put these together when we
get on the court
Guttenberg has noticed several
strengths, not indicative of past Pirate
season performances, on which they
can build upon this season and in the
years to come.
The season looks bright, as the en-
tire starting rotation returns, including
second team All-CAA selection Staci
Winters. The senior middle hitter had
anexceptional first-year campaign with
the Pirates, after making the transition
from the junior college ranks.
"I'mlookingforStari to bring lead-
ership to this team Guttenberg said.
"She has outlined several goals in which
she wants to accomplish. I can't see
why she can't achieve them
Guttenberg looks forward to the
development of junior Melanie
Richards and sophomore Carrie Brne.
The tandem looks to be a formidable
pair at outside hitter. Last season,
Richards led the team in kills (333), while
Brne was second (313). The duo also fin-
ished one-two in digs with Brne having
the edge (385-366).
"We have two really good and strong
outside hitters she said. "Both Mel and
Carrie are very dedicated and focused
players. I'm looking forward to watching
them play, and each having great sea-
sons
A volleyball team must have a ca-
pable setter to run the offense in order to
get the ball to Winters, Richards and
Barnes. The return of senior setter, Sarah
Laurent, fits that role.
"I'm looking for Sarah to be our quar-
terback and lead the team Guttenberg
said. "It will be up to her to make quick
decisions on who touches the ball next
Junior Gwynn Barber looks to be in
the thick of things for a starting position,
after putting down 255 kills last season as
a middle hitter.
"Gwynn has an excellent attitude in

The Duke Blue Devils are com-
ing off a dismal 3-8 season, and
only ten starters return as new head
coach Fred Goldsmith attempts to
rebuild a once-formidable pro-
gram. To make matters worse, the
defense returns just four starters
from a unit that gave up a horrific
442 yards per game in 1993. That
total could, and probably will, rise
in 1994.
Duke transfers two capable
quarterbacks in junior Spence
Fisher and senior Joe Pickens, who
transferred from Ohio State last
year and started two games. Fisher
threw for 2,563 yards and 12TDs in
1993, but all three of his primary
1993 receivers are gone. '93 reserve
wideouts Steve Spurrier, Ray
Wright and Jon Jensen combined
for 51 receptions last season, but
will need to step up their pla y if the
Devils hope to have any resem-
blance to an air attack. Tight ends
JohnFarquhar and BillKhayatboth
return, and each had nine recep-
tions in '93.
The tight ends will be key in
the TJevils offense, because the run-
ning backs will need quality block-
ing to move the ball forward effec-
tively. Last season, Duke was
eighthinACC rushing. Senior Dave
Lohman (439 yards, 5 TDs) and
converted fullback Robert Baldwin
(332 yards) must tremendously im-
prove their stats to ease the pres-
sureon the unprovenpassing game
and defense. Backing up Lohman
at tailback is junior Tijan Redmon
(240 rush yards, 15 receptions)
Duke returns a solid offensive
front, with juniors Clarence Collins
and Jeroen Egge as well as senior
tackle Matt Williams coming back
for the '94 campaign. However,
both guard spots will be manned
by fresh faces who will need to
provide steUar blocking along with
the tight ends.
Ray Farmer-a tight end turned
free safety, leads the abysmal Devil
"D" into battle. He had 68 tackles
and three interceptions last sea-
son. Strong safety Tee Edwards (66
tackles, 3 INTs) joins Farmer, but
will also have his hands full this
season. Duke opponents com-
pleted 66.7 of their passes last
season against the defensive backs,
so Farmer and company will need
to blanket receivers at a new and
much higher level. To make mat-
ters worse for Goldsmith, the qual-
ity of defense plummets from there.
All four defensive line starters
graduated, and there is not much
talent able to fill the void. 1993
reserve James Kirkland (49 tackles,
7 sacks) would have had to de-
See DUKE page 18
On the bright side, second-
year Temple head coach Ron
Dickinson has 47 lertermen return-
ing, while only losing one starter
on each side of the ball. The prob-
lem is that Temple (1-10, 0-8 Big
East) suffered a dismal season last
year, and the future is definitely
not bright for the Owls.
The Owls have two quarter-
backs returning for the '94 cam-
paign, but both need to increase
their levels of performance and
consistency. The two combined
for over 1,200 passing yards and
6TDs, but threw interceptions and
completed less than 40 percent of
their pass attempts. Much will be
needed from these two if the Owls
are to improve on their 11 points
per game of '93.
The QB platoon's main tar-
gets this year will be juniors Marc
Baxter (6-0,190) and Tim Israel (5-
11, 175), sophomore Randy
Canzater (5-11, 185) and senior
Jeff Frederick (5-7,170). The four
combined for 36 catches last sea-
son. Tight end P.J. Cook returns
for his senior season as well.
Hoping to ease the burden of
the passing game will be a rush-
ing crew that corralled a total of
justl,360 yards in '93. They will be
led once again by senior Ralphiel
Mack (5-11,200), who gained 570
yards during last year's cam-
paign. Senior Sid Morse (6-0,210)
and sophomore Danny Davis (5-
11,185) will also see time in the
Owl backfield.
Temple brings back four play-
ers on the offensive front who
received starting nods last sea-
son. Junior center John
Summerday (6-2, 280) heads the
corps, and sophomores Ed Bowen
(6-2,280), Andrew Peterson (6-6,
300) and Hector Pagan (6-4, 300)
also return.
On the defensive line, the
Owls have three players coming
back for their senior campaigns
Adrian Drones (6-1, 240), Sean
Carden (6-2, 265) and DeAndre
McClurkin (6-4, 285) all return
and will attempt to plug the huge
holes evident in the Owls' '93
defensive scheme.
All three linebackers return
for Coach Dickerson, as do his
cornerbacks and safeties. The
problem for the Temple coaching
staff will be to get these players to
perform much differently than
they did in 1993. Opponents av-
eraged 497 yards per game (105
out of 106 Div. I programs) against
the Owls, en route to a monstrous
47 points per game.

The Syracuse Orangemen
were supposed to be national
contenders in 1993. Marvin
Graves was a Heisman candi-
date at quarterback, and
promptly rewrote SU records at
his position. It was not enough.
As a group, the SU senior class
played far below potential, caus-
ing them to finish '93 with a
mediocre 6-4-1 record, and to be
home for the New Year's holi-
days for the first time in seven
years.
Graves has left, and head
coach Paul Pasqualoni has given
the nod to fifth-year senior Kevin
Mason (6-3, 210). However,
Coach "P" has two redshirt and
two true freshmen waiting to
play if Mason should falter.
SU lost record-setting
wideout Shelby Hill to gradua-
tion as well, but there are plenty
of capable receivers jockeying for
playing time. Junior Marvin
Harrison leads the group, aver-
aging 19.8 yards per cathch in
'93, with seven TDs. Also in the
picture are juniors Will Walker
and Jeyson Wilson, as well as
sophomore Deon Maddox. The
tight end spot will be filled agam
by senior Eric Chenoweth (6-3,
235).

In the Orange!rie&
backfield, the talent levefrhafc
dropped to its lowest poiat in

front line return for 1994: se
niors Dave Wohlabaugh (6-4,
280) and Melvin Tuten (6-6,300
and junior Cy Ellsworth (6-3

that deep, which could pose .

Only one starter is re

The Golden Eagles were look-
ing at 1993 as a breakthrough year
after finishing '92 with a 7-4 record.
Last season, they managed just two
victories, one coming as an Oct. 23,
24-16 victory over the Pirates in
Hattiesburg. Southern Miss Head
Coach Jeff Bower returns seven
starters on each side of the ball,
and has his team poised and ready
to improve on last season's
disapponting record.
The quarterback position is
still up for grabs, with junior Kevin
Bentley (911 yards, 6 TDs, 13 INTs
in '93) competing ith seniors
Tommy Waters (6-1; 205), a former
starterplaguedby injuries lastyear,
or Ricky Carroll (6-2,185).
Whomever the quarterback
may be, he can rest easy in his
receiving corps. Four wideouts re-
turn, led by senior Matt Montgom-
ery(6-l, 190) and junior Fred Brock
(5-10, 185). The two, along with
sophomore Ryan Pearson (6-2,
190), combined for 48 receptions
and 6 TDs in '93.
The tight end spot is open,
with sophomore Larry Norton (6-
2,235) and redshirt freshman Andy
Webb (6-2, 240) vying to fill the
position.
On the ground, Southern Miss
looks to improve as well in '94.
Freshmen Harold Shaw and Eric
Booth hope to step in early and
contribute, while juniors Chris
Buckhalter (6-0,190) and Myreon
McKinney (5-11, 190) will try to
keep the freshmen on the bench.
The Eagle offensive line returns
three senior starters in tackle Brent
Duggins (6-5, 300), guard Coty
Jones (6-6, 280) and center Kenny
Ray (6-3, 280). Rod Ollison and
Jason Hall should fill the other two
slots, but after them, the ranks thin
out, causing a depth problem.
On defense, the Eagles' sec-
ondary is led by junior L.T. Gulley
(6-0, 190), who picked off three
passes last season, running one
back for a touchdown. Melvin
Ratliff (5-11,185) will join Gulley
as the other safety, as Rod Thomas

The South Carolina Game-
cqcks have been perennial losers
forme past three seasons. How-
ever, new head coach Brad Scott
hasa degree of talented players to
work with in 1994, and couldbring
the 'Cocks above the .500 mark
this year
Scott, the former FSU offen-
sive, coordinator, has a decent
quarterback in junior Steve
Taneyhill (6-3, 210), who has
thrown for over 3,200 yard in his
two seasons under center. Hell
be backed up by freshman An-
thony Wright (6-3,185).
. Senior Brandon Bennett (6-0,
205) returns for his senior season
in the backfield, after rambling
for 853 ground yards in '93. Junior
Mike Riddick will seeplaying time
as well, and averaged 6.2 yards
perxarry last year.
" Toby Cates (27 catches, 541
yards) is the bread-and-butter of
the 'Cock receivers, and will be
joined by juniors Chris Alford (6-
2, 185), Monty Means (6-3, 195)
andTerrell Harris (64), 175). Also,
Bennett and Riddick combined
for 49 receptions last season.
Three of five offensive line-
men return for SC, led by center
Vince Dinkins (6-2, 295). He'll be
surrounded by tackles Delvin Her-
ring (6-6,320) and Luther Dixon (6-
5, 280), while James Dexter (6-6,
295), Anton Gunn (6-5,275) and Ed
Hrubiec (6-3,280) will fill the guard
positions.
On defense, Scott has changed
his scheme, now running a 4-3 de-
fense instead of the 3-4 that led to
333 opponent yards per game in
'93. Bom defensive ends return, led
by senior David Tumipseed (6-4,
260), who had 75 tackles a year ago.
He'll be joined by Stacy Evans (6-3,
245), who missed a lot of action due
to injuries in '93.
Junior Eric Sullivan (6-3, 285)
has a lock on one of the tackle spots,
with senior Vince Sampson (6-4,
280), junior Mike Washington (6-2,
300) or one of two sophomores fill-
ing out the other.
Only one linebacker returns
from the '93 starting lineup, and he
is junior James Howers (6-2, 250).
Junior Hank Campbell (6-0, 225)
could start, after missing '93 due to
injuries. Redshirt freshman J.J.
Brown (6-3,240) should see consid-
erable playing time as well.
The secondary is the weakest
part of the SC defense. The entire
group could only manage three in-
terceptions in '93, and will have to
pick up the pace to keep their team
in ball games this season. Strong
safety Tony Watkins (5-11, 200)
leads the corps, and led SEC defen-
sive backs with 89 tackles. Incum-
bent junior Ron Nealy will fill one
CB slot, but the other, along with
the free safety position, is up for
grabs.
Both place-kicker Reed Morton
and punter Marty Simpson are back,
which should help Coach Scott rest
easy in at least one phase of his
game.
The Gamecocks have an easier
schedule in '94 than last year, and
don't have to play Alabama or Au-
burn.
However, they are a young
team, and were ranked 89th of 106
DivisionI-Aschoolswithl7.1points
per game last year.
The pressure will be on the de-
fensive backs to keep games close,
and they will have to drastically
step up their intensity to make that
possible.
Look for the 'Cocks to finish
around the .500 mark. Nothing spe-
cial for the first-year coach.
Virginia Tech:
OcL15
Virgjna Tech was a big sur-
prise lastseason, rebounding from
a 1992 record of 2-8-1 all the way
to 9-3 last year, along with an
Independence Bowl victory. Four-
teen starters return for Coach
Frank Beamer, all looking to stay
nea"r the top of the Big East race.
Maurice DeShazo (6-1, 200)
returns under center, where he
threw for 2,080 yards and 22 touch-
downs in'93. DeShazo is a Randall
Cunningham-type quarterback
whb can run with the ball as well.
Antonio Freeman (6-1, 190)
had 32 catches for 643 yards and
nine touchdowns last year, and
returns as DeShazo's favorite tar-
get: Junior Bryant still (6-0, 180)
and sophomore Cornelius White
(5-ll, 185) return as well.
Dwayne Thomas (5-11, 210)
is back this season, bringing along
his 1,130 rushing yards and 11
TDs from a year ago. Seniors
Randall White (5-10, 200) and
Mike Hodges (6-0,225) will also
see time in the backfield.
The University of Tulsa
Golden Hurricanes were 8-13-1
over the last two seasons, but
they trounced the Pirates 52-26
in Ficklen last year. However,
things arelooking down for head
coach Dave Rader. Only eight
starters return, so Golden Hurri-
cane fans should be in for a long
season.
Gus Frerotte has taken his
quarterbackskills to thepro ranks
and there is no experienced quar-
terback to fill the void. Sopho-
mores Troy DeGar (6-1,205) and
Casey Borin (6-1, 210) are com-
peting for the starting job.
The same goes for the re-
ceiving corps.There are no
proven wideoutreturning, how-
ever Michael Kedzior (6-3,190)
and WesCaswell (5-10,165) bring
back their 50 combined recep-
tions.
UT hopes to fill the vacant
tight end position with either
junior Chris Anderson (6-4,235)
or sophomore Nelson Van Waes
(6-5,240).
The running game will miss
Lamont Headd's 969 ground
yards, so it will be up to senior
Jason Pearcy (6-2, 230) and jun-
ior Kenny Gunn (5-11, 185) to
pick up the slack. Sophomore
Soloman White will also be seen
in the UT backfield.
Three starters return on the
Golden Hurricane offensive
front. Center David Milwee (6-3,
280) leads the pack, accompa-
nied by sophomores Brian New-
man (6-4,280) and Doug Pisula
(6-4,270) returning at guard and
tackle, respectively. Seniors Brian
Underwood, Michael Beckner,
Ex-tackle Billy Conaty (6-3,
290) moves to center to fill the
hole left by All-American Jim
Pyne, but the Hokies' coaches
nust now find two good tackles.
Mike Blanchin (6-4,290) and Jay
Hagoofd (6-4, 290) hope to fill
the slots, while guards Damien
McMahon (6-4, 300) and Chris
Malone (6-3, 285) return to fill
their positions.
The defensive line returns
veterans Lawrence Lewis (6-2,
230)andCornellBrown(6-2,235)
as the ends, while J.C. Price (6-3,
280) and Waverly Jackson are
back as the tackles. Brown and
Price combined for 113 tackles
in 1993.
Big-time linebacker Ken
Brown (6-2,230) had 113 tackles
by himself last season. Junior
George DelRicco (6-1, 220)
added 103 of his own, and they
both return for the new year.
In the secondary, Indepen-
dence Bowl MVP Antonio
Banks (6-0,195) returns at one
safety position, and he is joined
Tulsa
Oct22
JustinHeinecke and Jason Sand-
ers will fill in as well.
On defense, seven starters
left, leaving lots of holes for a
young group to fill. DTs Cory
Lax (6-2, 285) and Lance Sloan
(6-3, 270) return, while sopho-
mores Hank Schopfer (6-2,230)
and Joe Warren (6-2,220) com-
pete for the end jobs along with
junior Sedric Clark (6-3,250)
All three starting lineback-
ers left, leaving senior Floyd
Goode, junior John Peters and
three sophomores to fill the va-
cancies. The situation is almost
in the secondary by sophomores
TorianGray (6-1,190), Larry Green
(5-8, 170) and Brandon Semones
(6-0, 190). Junior William
Yarborough and senior Stacey
Henley (6-0,190) are in competi-
tion for playing time as well.
Coach Beamer's main
weaknessess are on special teams.
Placekicker Ryan Williams made
only 6-of-ll field goal attempts last
year and missed five extra point
attempts to boot.
Punter Robbie Colley averaged
just 38.4 yards per kick last season,
and both need to improve or risk
keeping the Hokies out of a
postseason bowl.
Virginia Tech does not have
the element of surprise on their
side as they did last year. How-
ever, minus special teams, Tech
has a well-balanced offensive at-
tack, and the defense is almost as
tough.
The Hokies will be tough to
beat this season, and if everything
holds together, we could see them
in another New Year's bowl game.
as bad in the secondary, where
three members left as well. Senior
strong safety Mike Haenszel (6-3,
195) is the lone returnee, while
junior college transfer Malcolm
Williams (5-11, 180), sophomore
Jeremy Bunch (6-1, 190) and se-
niors Pat Denofrio (5-11,190) hope
to step in in '94.
The outlook is not good for the
Golden Hurricanes in 1994. They
are too young and have lost too
much to stay in contention this
season. They will probably hang a
few games under .500 in the stand-
ings.

Central Florida
Nov. 12
The Cincinatti Bearcats are
coming off of their best season in
recent history, and new coach
Rick Minter hopes to continue
the success. However 13 starters
from last year's 8-3 squad are
gone, so the new coach will have
his hands full.
Big-time QB Lance Harp is
gone, along with his three years
of starting experience. Minter
will attempt to replace him un-
der center with either junior Eric
Viberts (6-2, 19C) or junior col-
lege transfer Todd Preston (6-2,
195). Neither is proven or has
any meaningful experience.
Whomever the new QB may
be, he will mainly be throwing at
new targets in junior Sean
Stewart (6-0, 185) and sopho-
mores Anthony Ladd (6-2,185)
and Shannon Scarborough (6-3,
190). Stewart is the leading re-
turner with 18 receptions (18.1
yard average).
In the backfield, a huge gap
will have to be filled if the 'Cats
are to be a '94 success.
David Small graduated af-
ter rushing for 1,179 yards last
season, but juniors Craedel
Kimbrough (5-11, 180) and
Darrell Harding (6-1, 190)
should step in after combining
for over 800 yards in '93.
The Bearcats return a good
nucleus of vets as seniors Matt
Vaupel (6-5, 300) and Rick
Simmons (6-5, 275) return as
tackles.
Jamie Lemire, (6-3,280) has
switched to center from guard.
Dan Boslet (6-3, 285) and Brad
Schwing (6-3,275) will make up
the corps, but the ranks run thin
after them.
On defense, seven starters
have departed. The DTs will
again be Ernest Allen (6-4, 285)
and Dorian Adams (6-3, 250).
However, new defensive ends
must be found, probably in
sophomores Terry Grooms (6-4,
240) and Darius Felder (6-4,245).
As on the O-Line, depth is ques-
tionable.
Three-year starter Reggie
Hudson (6-1,210) returns to lead
the 'Cats linebackers into battle.
He ad 84 tackles a year ago.
Seniors Muhammed El-Mubarak
(6-2, 230) and Jody White (5-11,
215) as well as junior Ken Fowler
(6-3,210) will join Hudson.
Senior Robert Garnett (6-0,
185) is the lone returnee in the
UC secondary, but brings big-
play ability along with hiin.
Sophomore Chris Hewitt (6-0,
185) will fill one cornerback po-
sition, while vets Reggie Grant
(6-0,185),Marc Stevens (6-1,190),
Sam Games (6-3,200) and JUCO
transfer Terrell Davis (5-10,180)
are in contention for the other
two slots.
On special teams,
placekicker Tom Dallen returns
after kicking a school-record 17
FGs last season. Also returning
is punter Jeff Blaylock and his
37.6 yard punt average.
Hewitt was a monster on
special teams, averaging over 31
yards per kickof f return, includ-
ing one touchdown.
The outlook is not good for
Minter and his Bearcats. They
lost too much talent, and that,
along with a tougher schedule,
could equal a 1994 record on
either side of the .500 mark.
The Auburn Tigers came into
the 1993 season with a brand new
head coach and a lot of question
marks, and methodically finished
with a perfect 11-0 record. Terry
Bowden's sophomore squad re-
turns fifteen starters, and they
could come close to matching their
'93 tally in victories.
Tiger QB Stan White, a four-
year starter, has graduated, leav-
ing the position to junior Patrick
Nix (10-15,2 TDs in '93). He'll be
pushed by redshirt frosh
Dameyune Craig. The quarter-
back position is one of two major
question marks for Bowden, be-
cause neither candidate is well-
experienced or tested.
Star tailback James Bostic is
gone as well, leaving early for the
pro ranks. However, junior Steven
Davis has the potential to make
Tiger fans forget all about Bostic,
and averaged 5.5 yards per carry
in '93. The fullback position will
be manned by junior Harold Mor-
row, with freshman Kevin
McLeod or Dale Terrell also in the
hunt for playing time.
Auburn also returns two ex-
cellent receivers in seniors Tho-
mas Bailey and Frank Sanders. In
1993, Sanders had 48 catches for
842 yards and 6 TDs, while Bailey
pulled in 27 passes for 273 yards.
Derrick Dorn (6-4,225) and Andy
Fuller (6-2, 260) are both legiti-
mate tight ends.
All-SEC center Shannon
Roubique returns for his junior
season, and anchors the Tiger of-
fensive line. He will be sand-
wiched between junior Jason Tay-
lor, sophomores John Franklin,
Leonard Thomas and Willie
Anderson, who all weigh around
the 300-pound mark.
The Tigers' defense looks to
be even stronger than the offense,
if that's possible. Ten of eleven
starters return, as well as CB Fred
Smith, the Tigers 1992 defensive
player of the year, who missed
the '93 campaign with a knee in-

Last year, the University of Cen-
tral Florida finished with a 9-3 record,
sending them to the Division I-AA
playoffs. Oneof the threedefeats came
in a 41-17 drubbing by the Pirates. In
the battle, ECU quarterback Marcus
Crandell was drilled late by UCF's
Emil Ekiyor, ending Crandell's sea-
son Consequentially, a new rivalry
was bom.
UCF returns QB Darin HinshuW
(6-2, 195), who guided the Golden

Hinshaw will have an opportu-

David Rhodes (6-1,195) returns

Protecting Hinshaw up front will
be an outstanding group led by AD-

have the edge going into their Sept.
3 matchup with Mississippi State.
The receiving corps was deci-
mated by graduation, leaving se-
nior Mike Anderson (6-4,200) to fill
one slot with two juniors and two
sophomores battling for the other.
On offense, the running game
looks to be in the best shape early
on, with sophomores Quitman

Patterson (5-11,190) stepping into
the lineup. Fullback Marcus
Holliday (6-0,220) also returns for
the Tigers.

putting added pressure on the
backfield. Seiior Robbie Quinn (6-

The nucleus of that team is
back and it had little trouble han-
dling a West Virginia team hurt by
graduation.
Last year, a bowl game be-
tween the two undefeated teams
might have been a great way to
decide the national champion. But
it was a mismatch on Sunday, es-
pecially the way the Cornhuskers'
defense harried sophomore quar-
terbacks Chad Johnston and Eric
Boykin.
Neither had much experience
coming into the game and they
were running ragged most of the
afternoon. They were a combined
6-of-19 for 46 yards and two inter-
ceptions.
On the other side, Frazier was,
simply running to daylight, espe-
cially around left end on the op-
tion keeper. The junior sand-
wiched touchdown runs of 25 and

ter as the Huskers opened a 24-0.
halftime lead.
Frazier capped his 12-carry,
137-yard effort with a 42-yard TD
scamper in the fourth quarter.
After that, the only thing of
interest was whether West Vir
ginia would be able to avoid its
first shutout since 1986. It could
have, but coach Don Nehlen
elected to go for a touchdown on a
fourth and 9 at the Nebraska 9 in
the closing minutes and Boykin's
pass was intercepted in the end
zone by Sedric Collins.
"What's the difference?"
asked Nehlen, whose offense did
not get the ball in Nebraska terri-
tory until a fumble was recovered
in the fourth quarter. "Whygofor
the field goal at that point? We
just wanted to execute a play
While he wasn't perfect,
Frazier looked very good. Besides
single-handedly outgaining West
Virginia on the ground, he also
completed 8 of 16 passes for 100
yards. He also threw two inter-
ceptions deep in Mountaineer ter-
ritory.
"I made some plays, but I
also made some bad ones said
Frazier, who got a glimpse of the
Heisman in a trip to New York
City along with teammates and
former Nebraska greats Johnny

And if that continues?
Well, Frazier didn't want to
think about that.

Fourteen of West Virginia's
57 offensive plays went for losses,
with Nebraska registering eight
sacks.
West Virginia's Robert

record 1,250 yards last season, was

16 The East Carolinian
August 30, 1994
Former ECU quarterback cut by lets
(AP)-The New York Jets an-
nounced Monday that they are
cutting former ECU quarterback
Jeff Blake and that rookieQBGlenn
Foley has made the final roster.
The team did notwanttoannounce
its three final cuts until the coach-
ing staff had spoken to the players.
Last year, during Emmitt
Smith's holdout, the Dallas Cow-
boys inquired about the availabil-
ity of running back Cleveland
Gary.
Now, needing a backup for
Smith, they can haveGary for noth-
ing � provided they can fit him
under the salary cap.
Gary, who has a penchant for
fumbling and a $450,000 salary,
was released Sunday by the Los
Angeles Rams, perhaps the big-
gest name on the waiver wire as
teams got down to the limit of 53
players.
At the same time, the Cow-
boys kept Lincoln Coleman as
Smith's backup despite three
fumbles in the last three games.
"We'll still keep looking at the
waiver wire coach Barry Switzer
said.
Well, Gary isonthatwire now,
just two years after rushing for
1,125 yards and catching 52 passes
for the Rams.
Seeking their third straight
title, the Cowboys will go with a
rookie kicker, Chris Boniol, as well
as Coleman as a backup to Smith.
The Cowboys also traded a
19 draft pick to Chicago for line-
backer Jim Schwantz.
So is Eric Martin, New Or-
leans' career receiving leader; 13-
year-veteran linebacker Jimmy
Williams, cut by Tampa Bay, and phia released two veteran backups,
tight end Joey Mickey and guard
Eric Floyd, as well as wide receiver
Tom Garlick, linebacker Jock Jones
and running backs Mar kus Thomas
and Al Wooten. They also placed
linebacker Corey Barlow on injured
reserve and claimed offensive line-
man Mike Finn off waivers from
Pittsburgh.
Indianapolis kept both Don
Majkowski and Browning Nagle as
backups to starting quarterback Jim
Harbaugh and waived Paul Justin.
Among others cut was running
back Rodney Culver, who scored
three of the Colts' four rushing
touchdowns in 1993.
The cutdown task was made
simpler with Offerdahl's surprise
retirement. He had signed just 11
days ago.
The Dolphins waived seven-
year offensive tackle Mark Dennis
along with running back Aaron
Craver to reach the roster limit.
Craver's release allowed veteran
Mark Higgs, who had expected to
be cut, to make the roster.
The49ers waived fullback John
Mow and tight end Bryce Burnett
to reduce their roster to 52, one be-
low the maximum.
On Saturday, in something of a
surprise, the 49ers released third-
year defensive end Martin Harrison
and second-year safety Damien
Russell.
Safety LamarMcGriggs,astarter
forpart of lastyear, was among those
cut, as was Cary Blanchard, who
kicked for the New York Jets last
year.
Kick returner Troy Brown, who
fumbledapuntthatwas returned for
defensive tackle Bruce Walker, the
37th player taken overall in the draft
last April, who was cut by Philadel-
phia.
In less of a surprise, John
Offerdahl, the injury-plagued Mi-
ami linebacker, announced his re-
tirement.
"I never wanted to be the type
of player that is sometimes viewed
as a player that should've got out of
the game earlier said Offerdahl,
who had started only 24 of 50 games
since 1991 because of many injuries.
Gary, the Rams' No. 1 draft
choice in 1989, lost his starting job a
year ago to Jerome Bertis, who
rushed for 1,429 yards and became
therookieof the year. ThatleftGary,
who had nine fumbles in 1992 and a
high salary, purely a backup.
Los Angeles also released
comerback Darryl Henley, who is
awaiting trial for allegedly running
a nationwide cocaine network.
Unlike past seasons, when vet-
erans were released in the final cut,
most released on Sunday were free
agents and marginal veterans. That
was in part because teams already
had gotten under the salary cap by
releasing declining, high-salaried
veterans before training camp.
The 33-year-old Martin, a 10-
year veteran who holds Saints'
records for receptions (532), receiv-
ing yards (7,854) and touchdowns
(48), and has caught passes in 105
straight games, was an example of
player who had already been a sal-
ary cap casualty. He had his salary
reduced in the offseason from $124
million to $300,000.

jury.
Within special teams lies the
only other serious question mark
for the Tigers' coaching staff.
They will have to find a replace-
ment for PK Scott Etheridge, who
made 12-of-15 field goals in 1993.
What they won't have to worry
about is the punter position,
which will once again be filled
by Ail-American senior Terry
Daniel (51 punts, 46.9 yard aver-
age). Thomas Bailey comes back
for the '94 season as Coach
Bowden's most dangerous re-
turn man.
Auburn should have no
trouble finishing at or near the
top of the SEC West in 1994. They
have a relatively easy early
schedule, and with a little luck,
could be undefeated entering
their Nov. 5th matchup against
the Pirates.
Coach Bowden has many
weapons to work with � weap-
ons that could lead him back near
the top of the football polls.

keeping the team up Guttenberg
said. "She has shown great desire
and determination to become a
better volleyball player
The seven remaining players
are in heavy competition for the
final spot in the starting rotation
and quality back-up playing time.
Juniors Kristy Blair and Tara
Venn, and sophomore Kristen
Woodruff look to break into the
starting rotation, after participat-
ing in back-up roles last year. Se-
niors Kelly Crowe and Kathy Flick,
along with walk-ons Gina Bow-
man and Lisa Minnis also look to
get consideration for playing time.
Arriving from the NAIA
ranks of Illinois, Guttenberg is
not quite familiar with the com-
petition the Pirates will face in
conference. However, from what
she heard from others, the race
might go down to the wire.
Guttenberg has no misconcep-
tions about what her team will
face.
"It is always tough in the
Colonial she said Everyone ha s
improved dramatically the past
couple of years. I think we have
improved. I'm hoping we can do
better
The pre-conference schedule
looks to favor the Pirates as they
start out against Tennessee-Mar-
tin, this Friday in the Greensboro
Tournament. Getting a quick start
is imperative for the Pirates, as
their schedule continues to build
into conference play, including a
meeting with North Carolina.
The foundation is set, but the
stage is being built. It has been a
long time since ECU's last win-
ning record. A few breaks and team
unity can go a long way in turning
the tables in ECU's fortunes.
"Everyone has been pushing
their teammates to their fullest
Guttenberg said. "Everyone has a
fresh attitude. They are showing
the aggressiveness, dedication and
togetherness needed to make the
turn in the right direction. They
want to win, and win now

On special teams, Goldsmith
should be somewhat pleased with
hissituation. Both PKTomCochran
and P John Krueger return for the
'94 campaign. Furthermore, Farmer
blocked five kicks on special teams.
All in all, it looks like yet an-
other unspectacular season for the
Blue Devils. The offense will show
signs of life, but the Devil defense
(or lack of it) will mute any cheers
forthcoming. It is going to be a long
season forGoldsmith and his mighty

and depth to work with. Senior
Dan Conley (6-2, 235) could re-
turn after a two-yearabsencedue
to knee injuries, and provide
much needed defensive leader-
ship.
Seniors Bryce Bevill (5-10,190)
and Tonyjones (6-4,200) give vet-
eran leadership in the Orangemen
secondary. They will be joined this
season by seniors Karlos Jackson
and Chris Bryant, junior Darrell
Parker, and sophomores Kevin
Abrams and Mike Brown.
On special teams, SU loses their
'93 special teams Player of the Year,
PK Pat O'Neill. In his career,
O'Neill placed 176 of 244 kickoffs
into the end zone, causing 127
touchbacks. Sean Reali must step
in and continue the trend to keep
the Orangmen's advantage in field
position.
This season looks to be some-
what of a rebuilding year for ihe
Orangemen. After the '93 talent
flopped, then left, Pasqualoni is
forced to play a lotof youngathletes
who will learn quickly what Big
East football is all about. Look for
theOrangemen to finish around the
same mark as they did in '93.

tions.
The defensive line is very thin,
with both defensive end starters
coming off inj ury-plagued seasons.
Senior All-American candidate
tackle Michael Tobias (6-3,285) had
seven sacks and 13 tackles behind
the line last season and leads this
battle-worn group.
Outside linebackers Eugene
Harmon (6-1, 200) and Albert
McRae (6-0, 220) enter their third
seasons as starters and will be
joined by sophomore Cedric
Waltha w and seniors Deke Adams
and Terry Nunn.
On special teams, both kicker
Johnny Lomoro and punter Enc
Estes are back, while L.T. Gulley
shines as a return man, where he
is ranked ninth by The Sporting
Nezvss.
Last season, the Golden
Eagles were ranked 96th in Divi-
sion I-A total offense. The defense
gave up 423 yards per game, al-
most 3,000 total in the air. Hard
work and fulfilled expectations
must be evident for Southern M iss
to be competitive in '94.

On defense, the bleeding is not
as bad. Defensive ends Richard

Brian Bamett (6-1,265), will getstart-

The list of linebackers is headed
by senior DuaneVandborg(6-2,230).
He will be joined on the field by
junior Mike Rodgers and sopho-
mores Jesse Allen and Richard
Hogans.
Strong safety Barry Dillard
leads theTiger secondary intoplav.
He had 8 tackles in '93, and the
pressure will be on his shoulder
pads to increase that tally. Senior
Ken Irvan (5-10,185) and his three
interceptions are back as well.
Special teams was hit hard by
thediploma, too. Joe Allison, Mem-

UM'sof fense has been hi t ha rd

rebuilding year for the Tigers, so
do not expect much on the

PK Richard Matson was

The furture does not look
