Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
After heated campaigning and
weeks of confusing accusations,
the ECU class officer elections
results are in.
Bill Gheen wonthe senior class
presidential position with 59.8
percent of the votes over oppo-

Gheen was found downtown cel-

"I think the elections were
handled fairly Gheen said. "The

short notice, did an excellent job.
They allowed us to play by the
After the debated postpone-
ment of the election, Chair Doug

appointed by the SGA Executive

licity from the postponement of
the elections was a direct cause
of his defeat.

thought there was a lot of bias

phone interview with The East

Prior to the election, The East
Carolinian received no critical

Headquarters of Faculty Senate remodeled

If students want to make a
change in government policy,
thev should call their senator.
If they want to make a change
in academic policy at ECU, they
should call their ECU faculty
The faculty senate at ECU
was established 29 years ago.
Last week, Sept. 30, past and
present members of the faculty
senate got together in the fac-
ulty senate office, located in the
Rawl Annex, for an open house
dual celebration. They met to
commemorate 29 years of ser-
vice to ECU, and to celebrate
their newly-renovated facility.
According to Patricia Ander-
son, chair of the faculty senate,
the faculty senate consists of 52
members from every unit on
ECU's campus such as the En-
glish department, business de-
partment, industrial technology
department, etc. Senate mem-
bers are voted into office by fac-
ulty members in their department,
and each term lasts one year.
The faculty senate meets to dis-
cuss changes in academic policy.
Once they have decided changes
need to be made, they present their
suggestions to the chancellor. He
makes the decision as to whether
or not the suggested changes will
be made. One such recent change
that passed through the faculty
senateand was approved bv Chan-
cellor Eakin was the change in the
DropAdd policy.
The shared governance by the
faculty and universitv adminis-
tration is an important system be-
cause everyone is represented, and
sometimes faculty and adminis-
tration do not always agree on
what university policies should
"The faculty senate counter-
points the administration because
often our views are not the same.
They have different ideas on how
to achieve goals of the university
said Bill Grossnickle, faculty sen-
ate member from the psychology
"We are the voice for express-
ing the wishes of the faculty to the
chancellor Grossnickle said.
"Verv few times has the chancel-
lor vetoed suggestions coming
out of the faculty senate
"ECU is a representative of fac-
ulty and administrative coopera-
tion. In manv ways our shared
governance) is a model that oth-
ers would emulate, and many
universities) do. Our success has
been built on hard work, com-
promise and persistence Henry
C. Ferrel, faculty chair from 1977-
79 said.
At the celebration last week, a
plaque with the names of all the
past chairs was presented to the
chair of the faculty senate by
Chancellor Richard Eakin.
"When lookingat this plaque,
it's like looking at a Who's Who
of East Carolina University said
Chancellor Eakin. "The plaque
gives us a visual history of contri-
butions of the faculty senate since
its beginning. It is a very appro-
priate recognition of our fac-
Chancellor Eakin was not the
only faculty member praising the
faculty senate. Members of the
group felt that the open house
was a prime time for them to
gather to discuss their work as
faculty senators.
"This is a nice time for us to
come together and pa t each other
on the back and say, 'We've done
a good job said Anderson.
Eakin recognized the impor-
tance of the faculty senate and
apologized for the long delay in
their receiving adequate facili-
"The faculty senate for so long
has been such an important part
of East Carolina University.
Their facility was in need of re-
pair Eakin said. "The univer-
sity is delighted to be able to
renovate space for the faculty

portant role in the life of our

Well, in Logan's world, the
streets are paved with gold.
Complete with a bicycle and
tricycle course, bean bag toss
and other games, Logan's Street
Fair had kids running around
to more attractions than they
could ever have imagined. He
also provided chalk for the kids
to draw designs on the street.
Logan marketed his big play
day by passing out fliers at his
school and in his neighborhood.
But before Logan's Street Fair
could become reality, he had to
get neighbors on his block to
agree to give up their rights to
the street during the fair. The
Gaston Dav School student and
his parents then applied for a
city permit, which was free, and
city officials came out with bar-
ricades to block the street.

permits, said he'd never seen

in a cast for three weeks, al-
though casts are normally in
place for 6-8 weeks for broken
bones or surgery.
"With the cast their ankle is

Dempsey said.
So what kind of person vol-
unteers for this type of project?
Dempsey said the current group
of subjects consists of males and
females, ranging from 18-30
years old.
Volunteers were solicited by
fliers distributed across campus
last month, and by personal ap-
peals by Dempsey in certain
classes. Almost all of the volun-
teers would describe their mo-
tive in terms of gaining experi-
ence, over and above needing
the money.
"The majority of them are ac-
tually interested in the proce-
dures Dempsey said. "A lot of
them have come from the exer-
cise science department. I defi-
nitely recruited in the classes.
Seventy to eighty percent of the
volunteers just wanted to have a
biopsy done
"I've always enjoyed re-
search Money said. "Plus, I've
always wanted to have a muscle
biopsy done and the $400

Dempsey spoke of a nursing

through Dempsey said. "She'd
never had a cast before. Three or

never had a cast before, had
never broken a bone before. I

to be very beneficial, especially
for anyone going into exercise
science it will give them a little
bit of an edge, versus someone
who never has had this
A new set of volunteers will
be required for a similar project
to be run during the spring, un-
der almost identical circum-
stances. Dempsey said.
"We'd prefer not to have any-
one who's had any injuries be-
fore, especially to the left leg
Dempsey said of the search for
new volunteers. "We're not do-
ing anything real stressful to
the leg, but we don't want to
take a chance
"I think next semester we're
going to switch over to velcro-
tvpe splints Dempsey said.
"They're more comfortable, and
you can re-use them
Just last week, the subjects
were able to take their casts off.
Another biopsy and strength test
followed, to see just how far the
leg muscles had atrophied due
to disuse.
"When I first got my cast off,
my knee was so stiff, and it had
hardly any strength Money
said. "Going up and down steps
I had to learn to walk all over
"Now, we just work on the
left leg about three Mmesa week,
for 10 minutes per session, to

For the workout sessions,
Dempsey uses three different
kinds of exercises which are ran-
domly chosen with each volun-
teer. Concentric exercise in-
volves positive contractions of
the muscles, such as curling up
your biceps. Eccentric exercise
involves negative contractions,
or "muscle stretching as
Hortooagyi calls it. Another
group of volunteers uses a com-
bination of both types of exer-
It is the second type of exer-
cise program which interests
Hortobagyi the most.
"When muscles are stretched,
the forces generated by a muscle
are 30-40 percent greater than
when the muscles are shortened

metric state Hortobagyi said.

I lortobagyi said. "In light of the
race in going to Mars � and

looking at a substantial amount
of bone loss and muscle loss
during the trip which would
take years. Even if the astro-
nauts exercise as vou see them

"Not just anv kind of exercise
is the answer. For a long time,
the astronauts had been doing
running and treadmill exercises
� which is good for things like
blood pressure, in the lack of
gravity. Things like running on
the treadmill have nothing to do
with muscle size because the re-
sistance is too small
Hortobagyi said.
The situation gets compli-
cated when you consider that
spacecraft have no room for
large, heavv exercise machines
like a Nautilus.
Hortobagyi said, there is a big
push in the research community
to understand "muscle stretch
which is different from "stretch-
ing out" prior to exercise. This
exercise, which forcefully
stretches the muscle, has capti-
vated the interest of profession-
als in many related fields.
"From the fitness clubs comes
the question of whether we can
manufacture a unit which goes
both ways in the range of mo-
tion, with maximum load on the

stretched, and when they

Dogs remain mart's best friend
, by Patrick Hinson
I do not remember the exact
date or how it actually came to
happen, but I remember the first
time I saw the small tan and black
female German shepherd as it
appeared on our driveway one
I did not know where she
came from, but she managed to
show up a t our house one day and
decide to adopt us. Of course, we
took to the dog at once.
Our mom and dad followed
reluctantly behind, but eventually
came to accept her. Let's face it,
when your two little kids really
decide they want something
together, they're going to get it.
My brother named her Rebel,
which I realize is a ridiculous
name, but, as I have said, we were
little kids, and he was really
fascinated with the American Civil
War at the time. Anyway, that
was what we named her.
At first she was very shy and
reticent about coming near us. She
was underfed and had obviously
been beaten by her previous
owner, because when we raised
our hands to call her or try to pet
her she always shied away.
Before long, however, she
came to know we loved her and
would never hit her, and she
eventually became a part of our
I have a lot of memories from
those years when I was a little kid
when Rebel was a part of our
lives. She grew up with us in the
three years that we were together
and loved to play, explore and
travel everywhere with us. She
knew when she had the spotlight
and was a real entertainer.
She loved to play and chase,
but she was also a very smart dog
and very sensitive to our emotions
and moods.
Nothing breaks a dog's heart
more than to see the child it loves
crying, and Rebel always seemed to
try to comfort us when my brother
and I were upset. Once she saved
my brother from a huge copperhead
snake out in the woods where we
were playing.
My brother had been running
and tripped and came face to face
with a snake about the size of his
leg. The snake was raised and ready
to strike. Rebel, either being brave
or playful, I will never know, dove
on the snake and kept it busy while
we ran out of there.
Just like the way she came in to
our lives, I am not really sure when it
was that she left.
I don't know how or why she
ended up on the road near my house
one day, but she must have gone out
there with another neighborhood
dog that was her partner, a male
Doberman about the same size.
She was never one to leave the
yard, but one day she was killed on
the road, hit by a car. A man said he
saw the Doberman drag her all the
way back to'my house, about two
long streets, as if he remembered
whereshe lived and knew she would
want us to know.
I will never forget how my
brother's heart broke in two when he
saw her like that and knew we had to
bury her. I must have been in some
kind of shock, because I didn't react
as much, but he was closer to her
than I was. He was a shy kid and
did not have a lot of friends.
Rebel had been his best
friend, his closest friend, and it
hurts even now to remember
how bad it was for him at the
time. He cried uncontrollably for
hours and stayed near her grave
for a long time. He was my
enemy, but we called an
unofficial, mutual cease-fire
while this happened because we
lost a very important member of
our family.
I have not thought of Rebel
in a long time. I just saw a picture
of a German shepherd the other
day and it thing of her,
I guess. She was one dog worth
remembering and I know I'll
never completely forget her. I'm
sure most people have had
similar experiencesorhavedogs
or cats now that are close friends
like that.
We had a bunch of other
dogs,before and after Rebel,each
with its own personality, and
hopefully wewillagain someday.
But when I think of her, I feel
certain that all good dogs must go
to heaven. Where else could they
possibly go? I am sure they must
be up there, because heaven just
wouldn't be the same without
I hope they are in a Heaven
where there's fire hydrants on
every comer, everyone wants to
play chase and all the postal
workers are made of ham. You
never really think about how
m udi a pet means until they' re no
longer with you.
Responsibility will help deter AIDS
As young adults we must
realize that we are responsible for
our own actions. We are in the
second decade of the AIDS epi-
demic. There are still many unan-
swered questions about this terri-
fying disease that has affected the
lives of millions of people.
In spite of tremendous suf-
fering, many people with AIDS
have found the strength to reach
out to others. They are trying to
debunk myths that still exist about
the disease that will cause their
early demise. One such person is
Rick O'Neal.
He speaks to students on
college campuses about the battle
he fights every day with this ill-
ness. At the age of 31, he is dying
of AIDS. A careless decision that
he made years ago is killing him
today. After being out of the hos-
pital three weeks, he found the
strength to come to my sociology
class to speak on the topic of AIDS.
Just like many of us, he never
thought that something like that
could happen to him. As young
adults, we should take his life ex-
perience and apply it to our lives.
We must realize that the AIDS
virus has many faces and it can
happen to us as easily as it hap-

pened to him. AIDS is no longer someone is more important that
someone else's problem � it is
society's problem. Like it or not,
AIDS is a part of our world and it
is going to be around for a long
People of all ages, including
college students, are getting in-
fected with the AIDS virus. The
tragedy of this virus is not exclu-
sive to any one particular group. It
does not discriminate � the AIDS
virus does not care who it infects.
Without the proper precautions,
you could be the next victim.
At times we, as young
people, seem to think we will live
forever, that nothing bad can hap-
pen to us. That is normal. It is hard
for someone young and hea 1 thy to
imagine getting a serious illness
that will never go away. But mak-
ing it your business to know about
AIDS may save your life. Lack of
knowledge can be your worst en-
emy and your death sentence.
Fourteen years into the AIDS
epidemic the death toll continues
to mount. Protect yourself and do
not become a statistic. Think of
yourself as a person deserving
love, care and respect. Think of
those a round you in the same way.
Friendship and caring about
sex. When it comes to sexuality,
respect means not putting pres-
sure on each other to have sex or
to be other than the way you are.
Taking care means not taking
chances with health and safety.
I believe that sexuality is
God's gift as is the body�and
what we do with it affects our
whole being�physically, men-
tally and spiritually.
Our body is too important
to treat carelessly or casually.
Making wise and careful choices- - '
about sex is good for the spirit
and, in the age of AIDS, it can also;
save your life and the lives of
people with whom you are inti-
mate. No amount of praying
atonement or exotic remedies
could protect anyone against the
AIDS virus.
No one really knows what
the future will bring. The picture
is bleak, but the advice on how to
avoid AIDS is available.
While it is the duty of the
infected not to spread the virus, it '�
is the responsibility of the com-
munity to provide education, �

To the Editor:
As president of the ECU chapter of Gamma
Beta Phi, a national honor society with close to 300
members from all majors, I am truly outraged by the
homecoming committee's lack of announcement and
short deadline for Queen and King nominations this
year. Gamma Beta Phi would have readily nomi-
nated a King and Queen had we been given more
advanced deadline notice.
' I have been at ECU for 3 years and have always
seen a great deal more candidates than this year, so
I am sure that my organization is not the only one
who "missed the cut I challenge the committee to
reopen nominations and allow a better representa-
tion of ECU students to compete for Homecoming
King and Queen.

I write this letter in response to Shannon Gay's
aricle in the October 4th Lifestyle section titled " A
Drop in the Bucket. This so-called drop splashed
refreshingly in my face. To Shannon, and the rest of
that why they are despised so, because it was their
ilk, in part, that drives others into the alternative

cropped up virtually overnight: and the great Warhol
God willing it will disappear as quickly. However, it
might just leave our alternative culture with a resi-

enhance, and enlighten our ranks.
I would ask the people in agreement wi th Shan-
nonof which I am one) to take a good hard look at
the enemy within. Judging from Shannon's tone
their is no love lost for Freddy and Sally. But isn't

Pictured here are the Havasu Falls, just one of the beautiful sights to be seen in the film Grand Canyon,
showing on Oct. 12 as part of the ECU Travel-Adventure film series. Awe-inspiring, isn't it?
Imagine riding down the
Colorado River during sunrise
looking up at the sheer cliffs ay
they majestically rise out of the
harsh landscape. Most of us
won't be able to get to the Grand
Canyon anytime soon, but the
Student Union is trying to take
you there with Grand Canyon,
the latest installment in their
Travel-Adventure film series.
This series is designed to give
viewers a chance to experience a
variety of exotic places. The first
film in the series took viewers
up the Swiss Alps in Switzer-
land�A Peak Experience. Future
films in the series will cover the
island of Bali, the Biblical Holy-
Lands, and Ontario. But first, on
Oct. 12, we get to go to the Grand

every possible perspective imag-
inable as Dale Johnson takes you
there with his masterful film,
Grand Canyon. Mr. Johnson has
done many wildlife films in his
career, ranging from the Indi-
ans in Southern Panama to Alas-
kan Trailwood films. Johnson's
work has been critically ac-
claimed by National Wildlife
Magazine, National Geographic
and "NOVA just to name a

Grand Canyon discusses the
wildlife within the canyon as

a theme dinner to coincide with

p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12 (the

Weirdness reigns supreme for Ed Wood
�,ZT�� micfri.nhmwithLueosi Burton, Hollywood's darkly Murray also does a star turn
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
Edward D. Wood, Jr. was the
embodiment of the American
Dream. In the 1950s, Ed Wood
wrote, financed and directed
films in his own unique style.
He was a brave veteran of
World War II, storming the
beach at Normandy alongside
his bold Marine comrades. He
was one of the last, best friends
of horror movie legend Bela
Lugosi in that star's final, fail-
ing years. He left a lasting im-
pression on Hollywood that af-
fects filmmakers to this day. His
films are legendary.
Of course, his films are also
terrible, some of the worst in
cinematic history. And some say
that his friendship with Lugosi
sprang mainly from Wood's
willingness to exploit the ailing
actor's fame to sell his films.
And did I mention that, when
he stormed the beach at
Normandy, he did it in a pair of
red women's panties and a bra?
Well, at least the part about
Wood's impression on modern
filmmakers is accurate. Yes, Tim
Burton, Hollywood's darkly
weird son, is directing a film
celebrating the legend that is Ed
Wood, and his cast is nearly as
strange as Wood's own stable of
actors. Ed Wood stars Johnny
Depp in the title role, Martin
Landau as Bela Lugosi and ex-
pro wrestler George "the Ani-
mal" Steele as Wood's favorite
monster Tor Johnson. Bill
Murray also does a star turn as
flamboyantly gay actor John
"Bunny" Breckinridge. Ed
Wood's budget is 100 times that
of all Wood's films combined,
and from all reports it was a work
of love for Burton. But the film
fictionalizes some of Wood's
story and ignores his more sor-

The Sex Police, those cute rockers
fromChapel HiU,haveanewCDout
titled Science. I was curious, when I
first got the CD, as to what it was
going to sound like. The Sex Police is
one of those bands I used to go see
during my freshman year. My friends
and I would go downtown, have a
bunch of beers and boogie until we
were too stickered to stand. After
about six months of that, I and so
many people I knew burned out on
The Sex Police. I'm not saying they
are a bad band; I've had some great
times while listening to them. They
just got old.
Medallion, their first full-length
project (on the Baited Breath label,
mind you) is a great, smiley, feel
good, "pop 'till you puke" sort of
album, but that's what I burned out
on. I was definitely ready for some-
thing new, and not too long after
that, Second String was released. This
disc had some really cool tracks on
it. Their music seems a bit more
complex, yet they still had that fun
groovy sound (for the people who
like that sort of thing). Nevertheless,
it did not do the trick. The name "Sex
Police" had almost been wiped from
my memory completely. If I didn't
hear something new and somewhat
cool from them, I would have kicked
them out of the back of my brain
forever. Well, Sciena? has been re-
leased, and I'm uh speechless.
There is one word that best de-
scribes the third disc�boring. Their
music has definitely shifted into a
new direction, and one that I am not
particularly fond of. The drums are
much more basic; Shoney still keeps
the beat, but it's become monoto-
nous. It's lost all of the funky,
Manchesterish feel that was present
on the first two albums (besides,
Norwood hardly slaps his bass at
For example, "Science the first
track, starts off slow with kind of a
driving beat. And it goes, and goes,
and keeps going, and you're waiting
for it to kick in, and it never does. So
now, your CD player says it's on
Track 2, and you're thinking, "What
happened to Track 1?" Don't worry,
it will happen several times.

Riverrunt Spook
There are not too many talented
and original sounding bands these
days. The fact that a band is original
and has talented musicians in it
makes for a gcxxi listening time.
Although they have some talent,
not much can be considered origi-
nal about The River Runt Spook
Floaters, except possiblvthtnrname.
The River Runt Spook Floaters
who floated downstream from Cin-
cinnati show an incred .y diverse
taste inmusicthataffects their sound;
possibly a litlle too much. They re-
leased a recording thatcombinesthe
sounds of Traffic, The Dead and
maybe even Frank Zappa. All these
styles are evident in their recording,
and it sounds almost as if they were
trying to copy as much of their styles
as possible, especially the Grateful
As low budget as this recording
is, they failed to give any mention as
to song titles. Therefore, it is kind of
hard to describe individual songs.
Yet. the first cut has a different, and
the only original sound of the al-
bum. It opens with a screaming'50s
style guitar riff. The song (I'll guess
at the title: 'Titter Patter, since that's
what the chorus repeats over and
over) has the motif of a greasy ham-
burger joint located on some busy
corner during the 1950s. It almost
makes you wanttoget upand swing.
The third song is pretty funky.
See FLOAT page 11
Soup Dragons
"This album sounds more like
a band than anything else I've
ever done This is a very ironic
statement coming from Soup
Dragons founder Sean Dickson
considering all of the members
left the band during the album's
production. Being alone is usu-
ally an unhappy time, but
Dickson made the best of it and
was rewarded with The Soup
Dragons new album
This album is vaguely remi-
niscent of their last album,
Hotwired, but there are a lot more
explorations into different areas
of music on Hydrophonic than on
any of their previous recordings.
The album starts out with a
very upbeat song entitled "One
Way Street which drops the
distortion-oriented sound of the
Soup Dragons, and lifts you off
onto a groove-infested sonic
journey. In this song, Dickson
uses guitar as his instrument of
choice, accompanied by horns,
and strong back up vocals, this
song draws vou in and makes it
almost impossible to turn it off.
The track "Don't Ever Get Down
(Get Down)" is faintly reminis-
cent of their second album
Lovegod because it uses their typi
cal singsong guitar melody and
another strong chorus, to por-
trav their new in-your-face atti-
Some of the tracks 1 really en-
joyed were "Do You Care" be-
cause of its slow enchanting
melody, and its beautifully de-
pressing and sadistic lyrics.
Another really good song on
this album is "Contact High
The song starts out with a beau-
tiful vocal solo with lots of re-
verb making his voice echo for
eons when it bursts into the first
chorus: "When she flies, when
she flies, I sometimes get a con-
tact high This song is also
vaguely similar to some of the
songs off of Lovegod , because of
its level of distortion, and the
almost junky sound The Soup
Dragons portrayed at that time,
it also incorporates a string ac-
companiment and singers
"oohing and ahhing" along with
the music.
Appearing on this album are
musical legends such as Bootsy
Collins, ex-Specials members
Lynval Golding and Neville
Staples and T-Rex's Micky Finn.

and into this raw chorus given
to us bv Neville, and Golding.
Even though the chorus and the
song are both good, I had to lis-
ten to this song a few times be-
fore I really liked it. It still
sounds like a combination of
old-school reggae turned into
hard-core industrial. Many of

For the true story, check out
Look Back in Angora, a new video
biography that uses footage
from Wood's films and inter-
view s with his triends. The title
is a reference to the transvestite
director's love of soft angora
sweaters. Wood's behavior as a
transvestite is a major theme in
Angora; his first movie, in fact
is the semi-autobiographical
tale of a man who went to his
senior prom in a dress.
That movie, Glen or Glcnda,
set the tone for all of Wood's
later work. Though Wood
found the script powerful and
self-revelatorv, the film was
terrible and ended up being
relegated to a circuit of small
theaters that specialized in
� cheap exploitation flicks. This
� was the torment of Wood's life:
Ihe always had big, serious
points to make in his films, but
his total lack of talent made the
message seem merely silly.
And sillv Ed Wood films are.
In Glen or Glenda, the fledgling
director's first collaboration
with Bela Lugosi, Wood cast
the famous horror star as the
omniscient narrator. Essen-
tially, Lugosi, evil spirit to a
generation, played God. This
meant that Bela got to sit in an
easy chair and recite such hal-
lucinogenic dialogue as, "Be-
ware! Beware! Beware of the
big green dragon that sits on
your doorstep! He eats little
boys! Puppy dog tails! Big fat
snails' Beware! Take care! Be-
Wood's later films are little
better. Brideofthe Vfonsfer(1953)
stars Lugosi and Swedish pro
wrestler Tor Johnson as an evil
scientist and his hulking side-
kick. Featuring cardboard sets
and a legendarv rubber octopus
with a broken motor, Bride is
another Wood failure. Bride was
followed by the exploitation
crime drama Jailbait in 1954, and
then his masterpiece, Plan Nine
From Outer Space, in 1959.
Plan Nine is the biggie The
epic. Mecca. Declared the worst
movie of all time by Harry and
Michael Medved in their 1980
book The Golden Turkey Awards,
Plan Mine From Outer Space is
about a group of aliens who come
to Earth with a frightening new
invasion plan: they'll resurrect
the dead! Only in an Ed Wood
classic, folks.
This film has developed a
huge cult following. The events
surrounding the film are legend.
Bela Lugosi died just days into
shooting, leaving only a few
shots of him in his Dracula cape
looking feeble and moody. Wood
finished the film using his chiro-
practor as a six-foot-tall, blonde
stand-in for Lugosi. The flimsy
cardboard tombstones, the five-
foot-tall mausoleum, the bad dia-
logue, it's all there.
Then, of course, there's
Wood's trademark, the earnestly
serious message. This time, the
aliens have come to Earth to stop
us from developing .1 weapon
that will wipe out the entire uni-
verse, rhe burly Earthman hero
ot the piece, of course, punches
the alien leader on the jaw v hen
this information is revealed.
Again, Wood's message is ob-
scured by weird script compli-
cations, and Plan Mine From ()uter
Space enters the record hooks.
Alter Plan Nine, Wood's .a-
reer took a definite downturn
(as if he wasn't already low
enough). His next film. Night ot
the Ghouls, was never released
due to Wood's inabilitv to pay
the film developers After that,
he slid into the world of soft-
core pornography, making such
non-classics asfrgy ot the Dead,
which featured a series of
women doing lethargic strip-
tease acts in a graveyard. Wood
died penniless in 1978, an ill and
broken man.
Edward P. Wood, r. lived ,n

1 lie ca
st of characters he
surrounded himself with in the
ll�Siis was a virtual fre ik show
filled with Hollywood ringies
of all stripes. His body ot work
may be thoroughly wretched,
but it's also morbidly fascinat-
ing and entertaining in its own
pathetic way. In tin; wake of the
Burton biopic will come the re-
lease of all Wood's classics on
video (including the elusive
Night of the Ghouls, saved at long
last from purgatorv at the devel-
opers'). This is the final irony ot
Wood's sad life, 1 suppose. Six-
teen years after his death, he is
finally a success. Hmm. Local

Imagine for a moment you are
plaving inside linebacker. Your
job is to stop the run and stuff the
fullback when thev run the isola-
tion play right at you.
All of a sudden, a purple and
gold 4 is in vour face, knocking
you to the ground This scene has
repeated itself time and time
again, as ECU senior fullback
Damon Wilson useshisbody asa
battering ram to open holes for
his teammates.
Wilson (6-0, 225), from Jack-
sonville, Florida, relishes his role
as a blocker and doesn't mind
others receiving accolades while
he collects bumps and bruises for
his reward.
"You have to be willing to
prepare yourself to get no atten-
tion, whatsoever Wilson said.

Going into the sixth week of the
college football season, first year
USC head coach Brad Scott has his
Gamecock te im in top form. A four
game winning streak over Arkan-
sas, Louisiana Tech, Kentucky, and
Louisiana State has kept ECU coach
Steve Logan very busy this week
preparing for this game.
"Thev are a very good, athletic
football team Logan said. "Their
big, their fast, their tall, and they
can run. We are going to have to
plav a perfect game and they are
going to have to make some mis-
takes in order for us to win the
game, and that's just the blunt
truth. You don't get to be 4-1 by
The Gamecocks only loss this
season was their season opener
against the Bulldogs of Georgia,
24-21, in Columbia's Williams-
Brice Stadium. USC is 3-1 in the
Southeastern Conference stand-
The Gamecock offense is led by
junior quarterback Steve Taneyhill.
He won the SEC player of the week
last week against LSU, completing
23 of 30 passes for 157 yards and a
touchdown. He has a .640 comple-
tion percentage on the season.
At running back, the duo of se-
nior Brandon Bennett and junior
Stanley Pritchett have reeked
havoc on their opponents this sea-
son. Bennett leads all USC rushers
this season with 418 yards on 89
carries. Bennett is also a threat at
receiver too. He is tied for first in
the SEC in receptions with 25 for
150 yards. Last season against
ECU, Bennett rushed for 102 yards
on 31 carries in the Gamecock's 27-
3 victory over the Pirates.
Pritchett has performed excel-
lent at the tailback position, lead-
ing the Gamecocks in touchdowns
on the season with five. He is the
team's third leading receiver 17
catches for 131 yards. Combined,
the two players are averaging 138.8
yards rushing and 233.4 all-pur-
pose yards per outing.
The Gamecocks are protecting
the ball well too, something they
have not been doing in seasons
past. Te four game win streak has
produced just three turnovers.
On defense, the USC defense
have kept their opponents from
scoring a touchdown in the second
half for the last four ballgames.
The Gamecocks have given up just
one rushing touchdown on the sea-
son. While the Pirates are leading
the nation in turnover margin, the
Gamecocks are not fairing too bad

Taneyhill (above). The Gamecocks are on a four-game win streak.
in the category either, ranking fifth
in the nation at 2.20.
The defense unit is led by se-
nior defensive end Stacy Evans,
who has seven quarterback sacks
coming into this game, and six
quarterback pressures. He has a
total of 28 tackles on the season,
three of which were for losses,
and 22 solo.
Cornerback Reggie Richardson
is leading USC in interceptions
with three, while sophomore
Terry Cousin has two on the year.
The Gamecocks rate second in the
nation behind top-ranked Florida
in scoring defense, allowing just
over 11 points per contest. Just six
touchdowns have been scored
against Carolina in five games.
The Gamecocks have been a
solid second half team all season.
Especially in the fourth quarter,
where USC has outscored their
opponents 47-3 on the season.
They have not lost a game yet
when they were leading at the
half. The home crowd will be a
strong factor as well. The 72,000
plus Williams-Brice Stadium is av-
eraging close to sell-out crowds
every game this season.
For the Pirates to have a prayer
in this game, they must shut-down
both the Carolina offense and the
Carolina crowd. If the Gamecocks
get hot early, it could be a long day
for coach Logan and the Pirates,
who have not had to play in this
hostile an atmosphere this season.
The Duke game was half ECU fans,
and the Temple game had nobody
there whatsoever, so the playing
environment for the Pirates will be
a kev early on in this game.
Collins overcomes adversity to play Div. I-A
Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
In the face of adversity an individual has
two choices: give up or fight for an opportu-
nity to achieve their dreams. ECU's Alphoaso
"Buck" Collins never gave up on his dreams
of playing major college football.
Collins (LBDE, 6-3, 250) was highly re-
cruited out of Thomson High School in
Thomson, Georgia, just outside Augusta. He
was recruited bv Georgia Tech, South Caro-
lina, Florida, Fast Carolina and Clemson. Fie
eventually signed a letter of intent with the
Tigers ot Clemson.
asa student-athlete Thomson s Fligh prin-
cipal and former football coach Bob Smith
said. "He is the hardest-hitting linebacker
ever to play at Thomson
This type of athleticism is what recruiters
lKk for in a linebacker, a blend of power
and finesse. Collins, who runs a 4.7 in the 40
vard dash, has it all: size, speed and a mean

streak thathis former coachstill remembers.
"One plav sticks out in my mind, the
game during his senior season against Wash-
ington-Wilkes Smith said. "They had a
powerful team and a 240-pound running
back. Alphonso kicked off for us and he
booted it in to the end zone. Their back
brought it out and Buck drilled him right in
the numbers. That boy didn't get up tor
several minutes. Buck's just that explosive a
hitter. That hit really set the tone for the
whole ball game
Despite being selected to the All-State
team and the North-South All-Star Game
after totaling 137 tackles and six intercep-
tions, something was still missing. He had

A wise man once said, "If
you win, the fans will come
It is a logical theory. Let's
face it, Florida State doesn't
draw 70,000 plus fans to their
games because they have pretty
uniforms and comfortable seats
at the game. The fans come out
to see the Seminoles kick an-
other teams' pigskin.
Any avid sports fan knows
the difference in the World
Champion Dallas Cowboys and
the lowly Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers is about three superstars
and some change. But the atten-
dance at the Cowboy game is
much more than that at a Buc
game. Fans come out to see the
Cowboys win.
It is newsworthy to examine
our very own ECU Pirates. True,
they did win the Peach Bowl in
1991. But if you throw out that
season, the Pirates have not had
a winning season since 1989,
and that only because a game
was forfeited to the Pirates. 1983
was the last successful season
before that.
So with all this in mind, I
thought it would be fun to find
out how much fan support the
Pirates actually have at the
present time, one year after a
disappointing 2-9 record.
As I set out from my home in
Wilson on Saturday to see the
Pirates clash withSouthern Mis-
sissippi, I decided I would plav
a little game. For those of you
who have traveled that section
of Highway 264, you know there
is very little scenery to enter-
tain the driver.
So in addition to my usual
driving game of trying to avoid
being pulled over by a state
trooper, I began to count the
number of Ficklen-bound ve-
hicles. They were pretty easy to
spot, as their purple and gold
mini-flags flapped in the wind.
I saw a total of eleven cars
traveling on the highway, who
were going to the game. You
must remember that I left for
the game at 1:00, three hours
beiore the game, yet I still saw-
eleven cars. One vehicle dis-
played its designation on its
bumper- "Find Me In Ficklen
I was still not convinced that
the Pirates had the support of a
Nebraska or a Miami, for ex-
ample, but Phase Two of my
investigation was yet to occur.
That would happen at the game.
I was ready to find out once and
for all how loyal Pirate fans are.
My first stop at the game was
the field where the Pirate Club
members hung out. These guys
really know how to tailgate! Un-
fortunately I was not offered
any of the chicken, burgers, or
pie that was there.
