Delay causes mudslinging, slander
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
The postponement of ECU
class elections by the SGA Elec-
tions Committee has opened a
new forum for confusion, con-
troversy' and mudslinging.
The elections of class officers
scheduled for Wednesday, Sept.
28 were abruptly postponed due
to confusion among candidates
as to the rules of the constitu-
tion. At 4:55 p.m. on Monday,
Sept. 26, SGA President Ian
Eastman called The East Carolin-
ian to announce the postpone-
ment of the elections for a week.
Dean of Students Ronald
Speier said the elections were
postponed because there was
confusion as to which candi-
dates a student was eligible to
vote for. Although the election
was for class officers, in the past,
students have been able to vote
for any candidate regardless of
classification. The elections com-
mittee felt that steps needed to be
taken to ensure that students
were voting only for their respec-
tive class officers. Therefore, who
a student could vote for is deter-
mined by the number of credit
hours that particular student has.
The elections committee, Dean
Speier and Director of Univer-
sity Unions, S. Rudolph
Alexander, proceeded to deter-
mine ways in which a fair elec-
tion could be carried out.
Alexander said he called the
Registrar's Office to request stu-
dent directories listing students'
names, social security numbers
and classifications.
"We were not certain that we
could run an election in accor-
dance with the rules of the consti-
tution Speier said.
According to senior class presi-
dential candidate Bill Gheen,
Alexander was informed of the
problem several weeks before the
scheduled elections. Alexander
said someone mentioned the prob-
lem to him at the Leadership Con-
ference held Sept. 18-20, but he
did not remember with whom he
had spoken. At that time, no steps
were taken to investigate the situ-
According to former Elections
Chair Doug VanZee, Gheen's op-
ponent, Troy Dreyfus, was unsure
of the previous voting regulations
and questioned for whom students
would be allowed to vote for.
VanZee and his co-chair, Noe
McHone III, spoke with members
of the SGA, Alexander and Speier,
both of whom serve as SGA advis-
ers, to determine the most feasible
solution to the problem. Solutions
were presented to the two men,
and then their decision to post-
pone the elections was made.
"The elections chair and co-
chairman felt that in order to have
a completely fair and impartial
election that it needed to be post-
poned a week to make certain that
all of the candidates were clear on
the rules Alexander said. "The
elections committeel made the
decision. The only way that could
have been changed would be
through a challenge by the stu-
dent judiciary (SGA)
Gheen believes his campaign
has been hurt by the
postponementa and the week de-
lay allowed additional campaign-
ing for Dreyfus. According to
Gheen, the decision favored
Dreyfus. Gheen believes that
Dreyfus used his friendship with
SGA Vice President Sheila
Bos well to have the elections post-
"Troy Dreyfus had called
members of the Executive Coun-
cil and complained that he was
uninformed of the rules Gheen
Dreyfus said he was unclear of
the voting procedures and that
although he was simply asking
for a clarification, he was in no
way attempting to persuade any-
one to change the elections date
or rules.
"I can ask Dean Speier a mil-
lionquesrions Dreyfus said. "All
I was trying to do was clarify
voting procedures
Gheen questioned how
Dreyfus could be unclear of the
rules of the Constitution when he
was involved with SGA for three
years and used this experience
as his political slogan.
"I am upset that Troy
Drevfus, who claims to be the
candidate of experience, can
claim to be ignorant of the SGA
Constitution and its provisions
and get a postponement of the
election Gheen said.
While Alexander and Speier
believes the decision to post-
pone was valid, they also ques-
tioned Dreyfus' ignorance to
the rules.
"What is baffling to me is
that any candidate would not
understand the Constitution
Alexander said.
According to Article IV, Sec-
tion 6 of the SGA Constitution
"There shall be class officers,
elected by their respective

On Tuesday, Sept. 27, Senior Class Presidential candidate Bill Gheen filed a formal complaint and called
for an emergency meeting to discuss the election cancellation. Later Tuesday, the Elections Committee
submitted a written apology to Gheen stating that the election was cancelled based on Troy Dreyfus'
misunderstanding of the Constitution, as well as to allow additional campaigning time for the candidates.
All the elections committee was trying to do was insure a fair
election. At no time did we mean to harm any candidate's
campaign. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has
caused. The elections committee misinterperted the attempt
by Troy Dreyfuss to clarify the election day procedures as
confusion on his part about the election rules when in fact
he was merely trying to clarfy the election procedures. This
was due to a large amount of miscomunication by several parties.
Therefore, certain statements issued in the general apology
are rescinded. Those statements would be any sentence which
specifically names either Troy Dreyfuss, or William Gheen.
Our apology to all candidates, however, and to the student body,
still stands.
On Wednesday, Sept. 28, the Elections Committee submitted a retraction statement
stating that the elections were actually postponed to clarify voting procedures. The
committe rescinded the statements and apologized to all candidates and the student body.
Half price tickets
sell out quickly
Jon Cawley Stephanie Lassiter
Staff Writer News Editor
Students who planned to bring a guest
to Saturday's game against Southern
Mississippi may have been disappointed
when they realized they would have to
purchase full-price tickets because half-
price tickets sold out early Tuesday, Sept.
The official University policy states
that "student guest tickets are available
for individual games at half price on a
first-come-first-serve limited basis.
Once the half-price guest ticket supply
is exhausted, all purchased tickets will
be available at full price said the Ath-
letic Department's brochure.
The Athletic Department reserves
12,000 student tickets for each game,
including both free and half-price tick-
For Parents Weekend, 2,500 half-price
tickets were offered to parents, first
through the mail, said Dave Hart, ECU's
Athletic Director.
"The half-price tickets sold out on
Tuesday said Lee Workman, assistant
athletic director for ticket sales and pro-
motions. "Tuesday at 8 a.m. we had
long lines waiting for us to open. Stu-
dents bought tickets until they were
gone. That happens on big days and is
not abnormal
Many students were frustrated over
the unavailability of the guests tickets
and questioned if there actually were
any half-price tickets.
"It's costing me $54 instead of $27,
and I got my tickets at 11:00 this morn-
ing Tuesday, Sept. 27 said J.
Wiegard, senior. "I've been here for
three years, and this is the first year
there has ever been a problem. It's
like they the half-price tickets don't
even exist
Workman said there are 500 half
price (guest) tickets at regular games.
This amount is split between the
group tickets available on Monday,
and the individual ticket pick-up on
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
"No other school that we know of
even offers a half price ticket Work-
man said.
Workman said students had con-
tacted him about finding a viable so-
lution to the lack of half price-guest
tickets. Workman said he asked the
students to propose solutions to help
the Athletic Department determine
possible solutions.
"Based on pickup and demand,
student free tickets will fluctuate
he said. "There are never more than
12,000 tickets allotted for students.
This number does not change and is
the same for every game, and all could
be free if taken before any guest tick-

The Literacy Volunteers of
America in Pitt County, located at
209 East Third Street, will be hold
ing a 15-hour tutor training work-

beginning Monday, Oct. 10 and
ending Thursday, Oct. 27. The
workshops will be held in six ses-
sions each from 7 p.m. until 9:30
p.m. and are designed to bring in
more literacy volunteers.
"A literacy volunteer is any-
bod y who enjoys reading and reads
well and can't imagine somebody
else not being able to pick up a
menu and read it, read street signs
or especially read books because
books are for many people a great
part of their lives said RenaEller,
director of Literacy Volunteers of
America in Pitt County. "It's the
way they travel and have roman-
tic experiences
Eller said 10 to 1? slots are still
opened for prospective volunteers.
The volunteers must attend at least
four of the six sessions. In the ses-
sions, volunteers will learn sub-
jects on the language experience,
story, phonics and word patterns.
Volunteers also learn the goals of
the program, how to assess stu-
dents' reading levels and how to
make lesson plans.

December and therefore he would
only be able to serve one-half a
term if elected.

Dreyfus said he would gradu-
ate with his senior class and his
running mate, John Hardy, would
become President and graduate
with his senior class in May.
Dreyfus saidgraduation is not a
I pertinent issue in the campaign
for either party.
After the decision was made
on Monday to postpone the elec-
tions, Gheen filed a formal com-
plaint stating that the decision
made by VanZee violated the
election rules and the Constitu-
tion. Gheen asked the Elections
Committee to publicly apologize
and to have some of his expendi-
tures refunded.
Gheen believes it was unfair
that he already spent the major-
ity of his $100 campaign allow-
ance (from the candidates' own
funds), but the campaign would
� last an additional week.
, � Gheen said Dreyfus did not
start his campaign until several
days before the scheduled elec-
tionand therefore he had an un-
fair advantage.
- "Timing is a critical element is
any campaign Gheen said. "I
believe tijat this gives my oppo-
nent an unfair advantage. I have
invested so much time and
money into an energetic cam-
paign and I was prepared to win
by the rules today (Sept. 28)
On Tuesday, Sept. 27, Gheen
called an emergency meeting of
theelections committee at 10 p.m.
According to Dreyfus, no one no-
tified him of the meeting during
which Gheen accused the com-
mittee of being partial to Dreyfus.
. "No one made an attempt to
call me so I could have my side
supported Dreyfus said. "The
elections committee is only lis-
tening to Gheen's side. They
didn't even make an attempt to
call me
In response to Gheen's com-
plaint, the elections committee
gave him a written apology for
the postponement of the election.
The apology stated that the elec-
tion was postponed due to
Dreyfus' confusion.
"The decision to postpone the
election was made due to the fact

Dression thathecould have people

:er said.
On Wednesday, Sept. 28,
Dreyfus filed a formal complaint
;tating that the elections commit-
ee can not run a fair election due
0 their bias.
"The assistant election chair,

tion was not authorized, but
Alexander said this type of action
takes place even in Washington.

sion of a formal action Gheen
On Friday, Sept. 30, Elections
Chair VanZee and Co-Chair
McHone, submitted their resigna-
tions to SGA stating they had sim-
ply tried to run a fair election, yet
they had been charged with favor-

Alexander believed that the
elections committee was left with
a difficult decision where in any
case, someone would think their
campaign had been harmed.
"I believe the two young men
are totally impartial and have done
the best they could under the cir-
cumstances Alexander said. "I
believe every decision they have
made has been made to be fair to
all candidates. I think they were in
a no-win situation
Yestt day, fliers were found
around campus which included a
portion of the written apology,
made on Tuesday, Sept. 27 by the
elections committee. Next to the
apology, Dreyfus' campaign ad
was shown, as well as Gheen's
new campaign ad. While the flier
did state "Vote Wednesday, Oct. 5
Bill Gheen the flier did not in-
clude who funded it.

Both fliers reprinted parts of
statements issued by the elections
committee, and both fliers changed
the statements' appearances.
Dreyfus used holding, italics
and underlining to emphasize vari-
ous points. He also changed spell-
ing from its original form, spelling
his own name correctly, which the
elections committee had not done,
and misspelling other words that
the committee had not misspelled.

Ticket sales unfair at ECU
ECU's second victory of the football
season was a joyous occasion for all Pirate
fans, especially those die-hard fanatics who
attended the game. The game allowed
groups to engage in those time honored
traditions that are revered by fans probably
as much as the game itself � namely
These pre-game rituals that compliment
football games galvanize hardy fellowship
and inspire a festive mood that facilitates
the often raucous and sometimes
questionable behavior of sports buffs.
However, it has come to our attention
that some fans had less money to spend on
tailgating activities and such because of
unfair ticket sale practices. Those of you
who believe that there is something wrong
with the way tickets to the football games
are dispensed, your complaints have been
The staff at The East Carolinian has
become aware of a fundamental inequity
concerning ticket sales to ECU football
games First of all, there are 12,000 student
tickets made available for each event on the
gridiron. The crux of the problem, however,
concerns the sale of half-price tickets �
for each game only five hundred of those
are made available, although for parent
weekend that number increased considerably.
While they comprise a small percentage
of those who attend the games, groups
(comprised of more than 25 people) are sold
half of all half -priced tickets. So, because
a disproportionate number of tickets are
sold to a small number of people, fewer
reduced priced tickets are available.
Consequently, many students who wished
to take a guest to a Pirate football game
found themselves paying full price rather
than half.
Group ticket buyers comprise a
minority of those who attend football
games at ECU � but they are permitted to
take up half of all half price tickets. Steps
need to taken by the Athletic Department
to ameliorate this dilemma.
More reduced priced tickets need to
made available for those students who are
not affiliated with one group or another.
Individual ticket purchasers comprise the
vast majority of Pirate fans. It would be
only fair to permit ticket sales to be
commensurate to the number of non-group

example of federal police

agents trespassed onto Weaver
property. Armed to the teeth
with machine guns and donning
camouflage outfits, the
unidentifiable federal police
stalked the Weaver home.
Weaver's dogs were alerted
to the intruders and began to
bark. After an agent shot one of
the animals, Weaver's fourteen-
year-old son, Sammy, went to
investigate, He found his dead
dog and angrily fired his rifle
into the general direction from
which the agent's shots came.
As Sammy turned around
and started home, a U.S.

that the standoff was preceded

The government's case was

contradictions and what proved
to be the fabrication of evidence
they submitted in court. In fact,
it was so obvious who was at

Gerry Spence, did not call one

performed by Haitian police

would take notice (those bad
Haitian police, that could never
happen in our country � NOT).
The Weaver incident could
prove to be an ill-omen if
preventative measures are not
taken. With political leaders
infringing on our right to keep
and bear arms and federal police
forces having murdered citizens
at Waco and the Weaver home �
I am understandably distressed.

the Randv Weaver case.

incident. Let your voice be heard.

This has nothing to do with

As a woman, I am tired of
being ripped off by mechanics
everywhere I go. Is it true that
they can see a female coming from
miles away?
This summer I paid $100 to
get my brakes fixed and they are
still squeaking. Last week, I had a
flat tire in the middle of nowhere.
While I did call for back-up, I
changed the tire myself before HE
could get there.
I'm not an idiot, I just wasn't
afforded the opportunities to learn
about automobiles and electrical
wiring as a child. As a child I had
no sisters and two brothers and
hated Barbie dolls. So why hasn't
the advantage of growing up
playing with footballs and trucks
allowed me stop these con artists
in their tracks?
Simply because I don't know
what I'm talking about. Yesterday,
for example, I took my car to the
shop to get an alignment (costs
about $25 right?). While there 1
made the fatal mistake of telling
him the dummy brake light would
stay on at times for up to five
minutes or so, and could they
check itoutif itseemed important?
They charged me $50 to run a
test and this was the result of the
test: "We will have to take apart
the brake system to run another
test and if that test fails it will cost
you over $500 to get it fixed
Give me a break. They must
be laughing all the way to the bank
when it comes to me, but that's not
all. So I put the tire on myself,
right? I drive my car to the
Goodyear retailer downtown and
then he tells me a new tire will
cost $150 � it was on sale. "It's a
very expensive tire he said. So I
tell him to order it.
I tried to call other places to
get estimates, but apparently the
tire is hard to find. So O.K. 1 take
my car back three days later to get
my new tire, and I wait and I wait,
and I wait.
I was there for three hours
when I started to get upset that
they had not even pulled my car
into the shop. I couldn't
understand why Peggy Sue's car
was on the lift because she had
only been there 20 minutes. I feel
certain that my biggest mistake
was not getting a man to come
with me, because all women know
not to go talk to a mechanic without
a man.
I finally made a silent scene to
let these men know that I was
losing my patience. It just so
happened that a regional manager
was there who started buttering
me up right away. I told her not to
ByTambra Zion
talk to me.
Almost four hours after I
walked into the Goodyear shop,
the manager walks up to me and
says, I'm afraid we don't have your
tire. He puts another tire on my
car and tells me to come back. His
manager (a woman) wcs
obviously breathing down his
neck because he offered to come
and pick my car up and bring it
I called before I went in the
last time to make sure they had
my tire. Well, as it turned out, they
had me confused with someone
else and it took them an hour to
find the tire and get in on my car
� a 15minutejob. I know because
I did it myself when I was stranded
between Pinetops and Faulkland,
N.C two very big towns.
What's the point of this long,
rambling jumble of words, you
ask? It is to say that auto mechanics
are professionals and should act
like it.
Instead of talking females who
don't know any better into
additional services they tell us we
absolutely need (which we don't),
they should be concerned with
getting the job at hand done right
so we don't have to worry about
being stranded in the middle of
nowhere in the middle of the night.
Because we all know women
shouldn't be alone at night.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
If anyone is confused about the election
tomorrow, it is Bill Gheen. But, who could blame
him. It's not his fault he's never been active in student
government. Now, in his last year, he is asking,
"What can ECU do for me?" Bill Gheen is not
interested in the welfare of the students, Bill is
interested only in himself.
Bill has used lies and deceptions in his campaign.
Our campaign is not negative, we look at the senior
class offices as a job. As with any job, one should
select the most qualified person based on experience,
integrity, motivation, enthusiasm and the ability to
work well with others. We have these qualities and
we will do our best to represent ECU's graduating
To our fellow students that have supported us
we thank you. To those of sic that have resorted to
slander, please get your facts straight. Both of us love
being students here at East Carolina very much.
Their sic is no question we want what is best for
ECU. We believe now more than ever, the senior
class and ECU deserve to be represented by students
that have integrity and class. Tomorrow let your
voice be heard and help make the future for ECU a
positive one, not negative.

Senior Industry and Technology
To the Editor:
I am a senior who has taken an interest in
this year's elections for class officers. I've known
senior class president candidate Bill Gheen for
about a year now, and his interest in the issues
facing seniors has gotten me interest, too.
I am not too proud to admit that I usually
don't vote in school elections. It's not that I don't
care; I'm just one of the many who doesn't bother,
because I've never seen exactly what my class
officers have done for me. Part of this is maybe
because I haven't been looking. But when I have
trouble getting the classes I need for graduation,
because the money I pay to go here is going
somewhere where I can't see it, well then I guess
I need to pay attention. This is one of the issues
that greatly concerns Bill, and if we elect him, we
can be sure that he'll get right on it.
Bill is the kind of leader that gets people
involved. In October, he'll be running a Rock the
Vote benefit to get students registered. I'll be
there, because I'm not registered to vote yet. I've
been pretty apathetic in the past, but Bill has me
convinced that my vote does count. His
involvement in political activities within and
outside of the Student Government have made
me see that one person can make a difference. I
even turned off "One Life To Live" today to go
get a student I.D. made. Now I'll be able to vote
for the candidate who's worked hard, played
fair, and will listen to the seniors of this fine
university. I encourage the rest of you to do the

Dandelions take root in Greenville
Quinton Pickup
Staff writer
From the first note down to the last,
a good time was had by all Friday
night at O Rock's. The opening band,
Sticky, and headliners The Not So Dan-
delions pulled a strong crowd with
their original and energetic styles of
Sticky, a very talented band from
Boone, N.C was well received here in
Greenville. Even though the crowd this
time was on the small side, people
walking by stopped and looked inside
and started trickling in. Their set was
very original, with good bass lines and
ringing guitars. If this band keeps per-
forming with the energy and the talent
thev possess, they will be a band to
look out for.
The Not So Dandelions have met
Greenville with meager success before,
but that seems to be a thing of the past.
The Dandelions seemed to be receiv-
ing the long-awaited recognition they
deserve. With every show, the crowds
have increased in number, which is an
excellent sign for both the audience
and the band.
Having a powerful lead singer adds
an extra dimension to the band. Jana
Privette is that dimension, with her
excellent vocal control and energetic
stage presence. The whole band fits
together so intricately that it's hard to
single out certain highlights, but the
talented Greg Joyner provides a very
nice groove on drums.
When comparing the Not So Dan-
delions to other bands, the Smiths
might be the best choice. If it is pos-
sible for you to imagine the Smiths
with a female singer, then you have a
basic idea of the Not So Dandelions
sound. They're just a little more up-
The Dandelions played a strong set.

If you happen to live in a

Too much punk
kills O'Rock's dead
Meredith Langley
Asst. Lifestyle editor
What do you get when you
cross Dollar Night at O'Rock's
and three punk bands? I call it a
drunken disaster.
The night started out as usual,
with people drinking and social-
izing until the bands started to
play. MeshRate, the first band to
take the stage, was very impres-
sive. The guitar player mixed
powerful chord progressions and
melodies with raw, choppy lyrics
to create an almost old school
punk sound, but with a twist. The
crowd seemed to enjoy and ap-
preciate their efforts, for a small
pit started while others watched
in awe. In fact, someone in the
crowd said that they were so good
he wanted to cry.
The second band, Sour Vein,
prepared the crowd for the final
act with fast and powerful music
that gave us a great hard-core
punk sound. O'Rock's started fill-
ing up around this time, and I
saw some of the regular custom-
ers come in with totally surprised
looks on their faces, and a few
were filled with fear, for the freaks
come out at night.
People were flying and skin
was hitting the floor, which basi-
cally set the stage for the events
which were about to unfold. Blatt
Box took the stage and the crowd
started going nuts.
Their in-your-face attitude and
the lead singer's fabulously loud
voice made this band very enter-
taining to watch. One drawback,
though, was the fact that they
spent too much time .between
songs, so I didn't get to hear as
much oLthenviate could have.
The mosh pit was still going strong,
and the crowd watched this band
with much delight.
Cheap alcohol and punk rock
don't mix very well, especially
when you add variables such as
frat boys and hippie chicks. I was
told by a friend that the poop was
going to hit the fan at O'Rocks, and
that's exactly what happened. By
the time the second band came on,
I had to start balancing my time
between jumping out of the w ay of
a fight and watching the bands.
Even downtown fixture Gus got in
on the action when one of the
"punk-rockers" told him to get a
job. Let's just say that guy won't be
bothering Gus anymore. There were
plenty of other fights going on in
and around the mosh pit, but after
I spotted four of them, I decided to
quit counting while I was ahead.
By the end of the night, the first
band succeeded in getting them-
selves and their equipment thrown
out on the street because of fighting
and being too drunk to conduct
themselves in an orderly manner. I
thought that all hell was going to
break loose, but fortunately, the 2
a.m. mark was approaching, and a
slightly stunned crowed started to
trickle outside to their various des-
If you enjoy punk music and
you missed O'Rock's Thursday
night, you missed a great show. I
don't think I've ever seen O'Rock's
like this before, but I really enjoyed

Top 10 children's shows: Barney the
Dinosaur doesn't make the final cut
NEW YORK (AP) � The earty
ratings are in on the networks'
hottest Saturday morning
children's shows, and the Top
10 suggest the kids are all right.
You don't have to be young
enough to qualify for a Happy
Meal to enjoy these shows �
suddenly, Saturday morning is
full of offerings that are as ap-
pealing to adults as they are to
1. "Mighty Morphin Power
Rangers" (Fox) � OK, so it's an
exception. The appeal of this
top-rated live-action show
eludes most adults � especially
if we've shopped in vain for
Power Ranger action figures.
Nonetheless, the Power
Rangers have been a TV hit (and
a retailing mega-hit) since their
rollout as a syndicated week-
day strip.
Using footage from a Japa-
nese kids' show, the U.S. ver-
sion features six teens of vari-
ous genders and ethnicities who
"morph" � er, metamorphose
� into monochrome armor of
red, blue, pink, green, etc to
battle evil.
Verdict: Pass on this one.
2. "Animaniacs" (Fox) � Im-
prisoned in a studio water tower
since the '40s, these three red-
nosed, black-on-white zanies
are Warner brothers Yakko,
Wakko and their sister Dot. They
periodically escape for some of
Saturday's most sophisticated
This high-octane half-hour
combines classic cartoon gags
with the hip irreverence of the
Where else can a cartoon crit-
ter get mashed by a toppling
statue of filmmaker Martin
Scorsese? Quelle homage!
Verdict: A delight. Now, pay
3 X-Men" (Fox) � Emotion-
ally complex mutant superhe-
roes (who actually inspired the
Ninja Turtles!), the X-Men sur-
vived their transition from
Marvel's popular comic book
into the simpler world of
children's television.
It's a teen-age wish-fulfill-
ment fantasy, with emotionally
immature adults (i.e teens) cop-
ing with relationships and re-
sponsibilities � while saving
the world from nifty explosions
and evil, alien peril.
Verdict: "Evil mutants!
4. "Batman & Robin" (Fox)
� The Fox network brought the
moody, atmospheric "Batman:
The Animated Series" to TV last
year as a daily, afternoon strip.
It was the most distinctive, styl-
ish cartoon on TV.
Critics loved the series' well-
written, character-driven sto-
ries, its somber-hued palette and
the expressionist cityscapes that
evoked the Batman comic's
original style.
Surprisingly, kids loved it,
Verdict: The dark side of the
hero, still magnificent.
5. "Eeklstravaganza" (Fox) �
Starring Eek! the Cat, one of Sat-
urday morning's more abused
'toon critters, who absorbs an
horrific amount af abuse from
an arbitrarily hostile universe,
yet never loses his optimism, his
sweet nature or his bilateral
emission lisp.
Verdict: The sweetest victim
since Mr. Bill.
6. "The Tick" (Fox) � Our
title character is a seven-foot,
400-pound, V-shaped mass of
manly muscle, a crime-fighter in
pale-blue skin-tights whose jut-
ting jaw is three times wider than
his brow.
What The Tick lacks in brains,
he makes up for with straight-
arrow virtue, enthusiasm and,
well, enthusiasm.
His sidekick is Arthur, a
plump, timorous former accoun-
tant in a moth costume that
people think is a rabbit suit(voiced
by ex-Monkee Mickey Dolenz).
Verdict: Superb.
7. "Reboot" (ABC) � TV's
first wholly computer-animated
series is the most original con-
cept for kids' TV since 1953's
"Winky Dink and You" let us
crayon critical plot devices onto
a plastic sheet over the TV screen.
"Reboot set in the
cyberspace computer city of
Mainframe, stars Bob, a "guard-
ian program Dot Matrix, a
smart young businesswoman,
and her kid brother, Enzo, who
idolizes Bob.
Villains include the demonic
"viruses" Megabyte and his
arch-rival, the witchy femme
fatale Hexadecimal.
Accepted at
more schools
than you were
W, everyvere
you wartt to be.
Verdict: To heck with the
kids: This one's a must-see for
8. "Bump in the Night"
(ABC) � This nonstop, stop-
action animation is led by the
frenzied Mr. Bumpy, a lumpy,
green mouth on legs with eye-
stalks but no head.
He's pure id, loves to eat
dirty sweat socks and is totally
His best pals are
Squishington, a polymorphous
blob of blue goo who lives in :
the commode, and a sweet, bej !
draggled "comfort doll"
named Molly Coddle.
His foes are the robot
Destructo and the fantastic
Closet Monster.
Verdict: Delightful. And
he'd eat Gumby ALIVE! !
9. "Where on Earth Is
Carmen Sandiego?" (Fox) f-�
The computer game spinoff is
a painless geography lesson, !
in which teen sleuths Zack and �
Ivy perennially pursue
Carmen to foil her dastardly
thefts of world treasures.
Verdict: Tune in
"Beakman's World" on CBS.
10. "Tales of the
Cryptkeeper" (ABC) � This is
an animated spinoff of HBO's
live-action series, which was
itself spun off E.C. Comics'
gory, classic comic book of the
'50s. The cartoon is a toned-
down collection of morality
Verdict: Yawning graves?
No, just yawns.

back feeling to their music.
Surprise' REM's Iate9t, Mon-
ster, is dark and heavy and
haunted C heck your preconcep-
tions at the door; this album
doesn't sound quite like any-
thing else they've ever done. It 1
had to draw a comparison, I'd
say this one is a little like Dot it-
merit, with that album's barely
repressed anger and darker tone.
But the ghost ot Kurt Cobain
hangs heavier over Monster than
anything else, and that's what
makes it so different.
1 can't say that I'm surprised
by this turn. Stipe and Cobain
were working on a project to-
gether before the Nirvana
frontman's suicide. Cobain's
death might have been stupid
and pointless ultimately, but that
takes nothing away from his tal-
ent. A better rock and roll
songwriter hasn't lived since
John Lennon (if you don't be-
lieve me, compare pre-acid
Beetles to Nirvana � lots of per-
fect little pop songs all in a row).
So it only makes sense to me
that Cobain's powerful stomach-
cramp depression has affected
the music of REM. The influence
is strongest on the early tracks;
somewhere in the middle. Mon-
ster becomes an REM album
again. But the opening stufl is
nice and gutsv
From p. 8
The album begins with
"What's the Frequency, Ken-
neth? the first single. The title
refers to a bizarre attack on CBS
news anchor Dan Rather a few
years back, when someone
wrestled with Rather, asking him
repeatedly, "What is the fre-
quency, Kenneth?" What the
song itself has to do with that
surreal event in American jour-
nalistic history escapes me, but
it's a good track.
Next comes what has to be the
unexpected guest shot of the
year, as Sonic Youth's Thurston
Moore jams with the REM boys
on "Crush with Eyeliner A
sleazy love song addressed to a
girl who's "a sad tomato she's
three miles of bad road This
track is a real departure �for the
band, whose meanderings are
generally much more lyrical.
This kind of grungy love story
just isn't REM's style. Even at
their most cynical, they've ap-
proached love with a softer edge.
The biting edge of "Crush"
continues with "King of Com-
edy a bluesy song about enter-
tainment as business. After these
first three unusual tracks, Mon-
ster settles down a little. The rest
of the album is not quite as much
of a departure. This is not to say
that it turns into Document or
something; actually, I can't re-
call ever hearing this band sound
quite so sweaty.
But the music does start to
flatten out a little as things
progress. It's all good stuff, es-
pecially tracks like "Strange
Currencies" and "Circus Envy
Monster has a heated, brooding
quality to it and an intensity that
makes it stand out on REM's play
list. But, ultimately, it sounds
like something they'd do.

Pirates win big, blast Golden Eagles 31-10

The ECU defense collected eight turnovers against an overmatched Southern Miss offense.
Emmanuel McDaniel led the assault, forcing a fumble and picking off two errant USM passes.
By Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
A swarming, ball-hawking
ECU defensive unit set the tone
Saturday for their big win over
Southern Mississippi's Golden
Eagles. The Pirates forced eight
turnovers, one turnover shy of
the school record, intercepting
quarterbacks Heath Graham and
Tommy Waters six times, while
forcing and recovering two
"There is no doubt with eight
turnovers we can feel good about
that said ECU Defensive Coor-
dinator Paul Jette. "Our goal is
to create four or five a game and
we doubled that today. We were
constantly in position to make
the plays that we should and our
guys are playing aggressive,
heads-up football
The win accomplished two
major goals for the Pirates. First,
the victory propelled ECU into a
first place tie with the Univer-
sity of Memphis in the Liberty
Bowl Alliance standings. Both
teams sport an identical 2-2
record now and will meet Nov.
19th in Memphis' home stadium,
also the site of the Liberty Bowl.
Second, TB Junior Smith became
ECU's career rushing leader,
breaking Hall of Famer Carlester
CrumplerSrs record, which had
stood for over 20 years. Smith
rushed for 66 yards on 22 carries
against USM, breaking the record
midway through the third quar-
Pira'te senior NT John
Krawczyk set the tone for the Pi-
rate defense early, tackling South-
ern Miss tailbackChris Buckhalter
for a loss on the first play of the
game, then scooping up a
Buckhalter fumble on the next
However, the Pirate of-
fense was unable to capitalize as
Junior Smith dropped a pitchout
four plays later, stalling an ECU
drive. Smith appeared frustrated
with his second fumble in as many
games and seemed to be pressing
in anticipation of the record.
"I'm glad it's broken said
ECU coach Steve Logan. "He has
been a marked man with eleven
men coming after him on very
play. Junior sets the tone for our
whole football team
The defense responded
again when David Hart picked
off a Tommy Waters pass and
returned it to the Southern Miss
11 yard line.
This time the Pirates
made good on this scoring op-
portunity when Marcus
Crandell (16-26 238 yds, 3TDs, 1
INT) tossed an 11-yard strike to
TE Scott Richards. Richards

Smith sets ECU all-time rushing mark

Staff Writer
ECU's all-time leading rusher.
Now, whenever Junior Smith's
name is mentioned, that title will
be tacked on. The landmark
record was set on Saturday after-
noon as Pirate senior RB Junior
Smith scampered 60 yards, more
than enough to put him atop
ECU's all-time rushing list, sur-
passing the 21-year-old record of
Pirate legend Carlester Crumpler
Southern Mississippi did ev-
erything possible to spoil the
record-breaking day for the 5-
foot-6-inch Smith. Each time
Smith's name was called in the
Pirate huddle, a mass of Golden
Eagle defenders were at the line
of scrimmage to meet him. Smith
managed a meager five yards in
the first quarter.
"I wanted to go ahead and get
the record and get it off of my
back Smith said in a post-game
interview. "It was throwing my
whole game out of sync
Smith inched closer to the
record during the second quar-
ter, amassing another twenty-four
vards on seven carries. However,
the Pirate faithful would have to
wait until the second half to see
the record fall.
Then it happened.
Smith took a Marcus Crandall
hand-off and blasted through the
middle of the line. When he arose
from the pile, his name became a
part of the East Carolina Univer-
sity record book.
No one knew immidiately
that Smith had finally shattered
the long-standing mark. The
public address announcer did
not make the event known to the
32,867 in attendance until later
in the game. Play was not
stopped. No on-field ceremony
was held to crown the new king
of rushing.
"I wanted to show that this is
not an individual achievement
Smith said. "There is no way I
could have done this without
the offensive line. They deserve
as much credit as I do
"Junior didn't want a lot of
attention, and neither did I
ECU head coach Steve Logan
said. "We are trying to stamp
out individualness on this team.
This shows that we have done a
good job of eliminating the indi-
vidual aspect and focusing on
the team's success
Logan did not, however, let the
event go totally unrecognized. In
the locker room, after the game,
he presented Smith with the game
ball. Smith in turn sought out his
offensive line and asked them to
sign the now-famous pigskin.
Now that the record is set and
the hoopla surrounding it has sub-
sided, Junior is ready to get back
to business and look toward the
next award.
"I have one bowl ring (from the
1991 Peach Bowl) he said. "Now
I am ready to go on the race to the
Liberty Bowl
With seven games remaining
in the season, there is little doubt
that Smith will continue to lead
the Pirates as they look towards
Dec. 31. He is well on his way to
surpass other milestones as his
Senior year progresses. He needs
just 95 more yards to accumulate
3,000 in his career, and only 56
more carries to become ECU's all-
time leading carrier.
And as past ECU opponents well
know, with Junior in the backfield,
anything is possible. Did someone
say "Junior for Heisman"? Time
will tell as the Pirates look ahead to
South Carolina.

After a season with an 11-24
record, there is only room for im-
provement. That was the thinking
of the ECU women's volleyball team
upon entering the 1994 season. One
of the main keys to success of this
year's edition of the Lady Pirates is
senior Staci Winters.
The 5-foot-10-inch middle hitter
came to ECU last season after two
successful campaigns with
Hagerstown, a junior college that
rose to be nationally recognized
during Winters' years. She earned
NJCAA second team All-America
recognition while at Hagerstown,
leading the way to two back-to-back
regional championships. However,
she has enjoyed the change from the
junior college level to the NCAA.
"The level of play is much, much
more intense Winters said. "The
ECU program is a good one. All the
players get along and we have a
good relationship with Coach
the third Lady Pirate in ECU history
to be named to the second team All-
CAA roster while amassing 72 solo
blocks � a team high.
This year's rebuilding process
began at the top. A new head coach
was hired to achieve what former
coach Martha McCaskill couldn't

At ECU, a tradition lies deep in
the swimming program. Under
Head Swim Coach Rick Kobe, the
tradition remains.
Voted Coach of the Year last year
in the Colonial Athletic Association,
Kobe leads yet another fine
group of swimmers.
"We hope that each swim-
mer will swim fast and to their
best times ever Kobe said.
He last guided the men's
swim team to number one in
1989, and now seeks another
first place finish.
"We would like to win the
CAA Championships and im-
prove on our performance at
the East Coast Athletic Confer-
ence Championships Kobe
Last season's men's team
finished 10-2, while the women
were 9-3. Averaging ten wins
a season, Kobe is one of the top
coaches at ECU.
"We are a strong team.
Young, but strong Kobe said.
He has 52 members on the
swim team this season Suc-
cess will depend on the return-

Looking at the CAA and its
tough competition, James

two of the tougher opponents
for the Pirates.

not be easv to predict which
teams will give ECU a strong
The 1994-95 Pirates will be
led by top swimmers John
Donovan and Jackie Schmkder.
Other familiar Pirates anchor-
ing the team will be Patrick
Cassidy, Beth Humphrey, and
Elizabeth Bradner. Coach Kobe
can also look to senior diver
Scott Kupec to help his swim
Top newcomers in the Pirate
charge include, Jim Broughal,
Patrick Kesler, and Andy
Wright on the men's team. On
the women's team expect
Amanda Atkinson, Samantha

Sandra Ossmann to impact the
team significantly.
Coach Kobe can be seen with
his record breaking team on
Tuesday Oct. 4 at the Minges

'Air Jordan'continues training
(USA Today) � On a hot,
steamy Florida morning, Michael
Jordan entered the batting cage
at the Chicago White Sox's
spring-training complex to face
15 minutes c f off-speed pitches.
The rest of the Class A and
rookie-league players taking part
in the Florida Instructional
League were inside in the air-
conditioned comfort of the
Sarasota, Fla clubhouse, eating
Jordan sought more work.
"That was a pitch I really
hated he said of sliders he faced
in his first pro baseball season
with Class AA Birmingham
In Chicago, Scottie Pippen,
heir to "Air Jordan's" NBA
throne with the Chicago Bulls,
was recording a rap song. The
title wasn't Five-peat. That chance
ended a season ago.
Jordan this week joins the
Scottsdale Scorpions, his third
pro team in a year, in the Arizona
Fall League. Thursday marks a
year since he shocked the sports
world by announcing his retire-
ment from pro basketball.
Friday, the Bulls open train-
ing camp. Jordan probably will
be in left field as Scottsdale
opens at Tempe (10:05 p.m. ET).
"I haven't looked back at all
Jordan says. "I knew once I made
that decision, I wasn't going to
look back
Not even an effortless 52-
point outburst in a charity game
at Chicago Stadium changed his
mind. Basketball certainly ap-
peared much easier than the
Southern League, where J rdan
batted .202 for the Barons.
"You've got to look at things
that are difficult to maintain, a
competitive attitude he says.
"I come back and score 52 points
in a pick-up game. It wasn't re-
ally a challenge.
"The confidence won't ever
leave me until I see some dimin-
ishing in my skills. As long as I

To all Bulls fans clutching
lucky charms, praying Jordan
will return � forget it. Jerry
Reinsdorf has.
The owner of the Bulls and
White Sox watched Jordan dive
into first base again and again in
a baserunning drill. The three
NBA titles and MVP trophies
don't matter. He does the same
drills as the other 46 players,
mostly 18- to 20-year-olds.
"I'm happy because he's
happy Reinsdorf says. "I just
want what's best for Michael. I
don't have any doubt what's
best for him is to go out and see if
he can succeed at (baseball). If he
can't, then he'll know he can't
Can he play? Jordan's batting
average wasn't impressive, but
he did hit .260 in August with
two home runs and 12 RBI. His
30 stolen bases ranked fifth in the
Southern League, and he had a
.952 fielding percentage, with
only two of his 11 errors after the
All-Star break.
"The odds were Michael
wasn't going to make it, and he
still hasn't Reinsdorf says. "But
I never said it was impossible,
because it was Michael. You
could never say there was any-
thing athletic that Michael can't
Reinsdorf was criticized last
spring for giving Jordan the op-
portunity, captured in the March
14 Sports Illustrated cover "Bag It,
Michael" that claimed "Jordan
and the White Sox are embar-
rassing baseball Jordan still
won't talk to SI reporters.
"I think what was being mis-
construed was my effort to make
this happen Jordan says. "I
think it was giving the White Sox
a bad name, because everyone
thought the White Sox were do-
ing this for other reasons than
the love of the game
Says Reinsdorf: "It was never
a gimmick. He's always said this
was a dream and something that
hewantedtodo Nobody would
work as hard as he's worked if he
wasn't serious
Nobody making $31 million
in endorsements would sweat six
hours a day in Florida humidity
if he didn't want to play. Jordan's
hands were so blistered after
three days of hitting that he
skipped intrasquad games.
His struggles at the minor
league level actually helped his
image. Instead of being super-
star Michael Jordan, able to leap
across basketball courts in a
single bound, he suddenly be-
came human.
Between the Sept. 3 end of the
minor league season and report-
ing to Sarasota, Jordan dedicated
a boys and girls club to his late
father, to be built on Chicago's
West Side near soon-to-be demol-
ished Chicago Stadium. He hon-
ored 51 students for academic
achievement, hosting the kids
and their parents in Chicago for a
weekend, an annual Michael Jor-
dan Foundation function.

The Irish added to their mys-

North Carolina's 92-game streak

The Tar Heels, who have won
eight consecutive NCAA cham-

The Irish men's basketball

1971 Cotton Bowl). None was
more improbable than this.

possession. Pirate Dl Lorenzo

cornerback lank Cooper picked

back when Jr. Smith showed off
his ability to catch the ball out of

peared he could have scored but

Fourth-quarter action
was highlighted by a strong ECU
