The Department of Political Sci-
ence, like much of the rest ot the
University is undergoing many
changesdesigned toimpro eperfbr-

out ot it.
The Master of Public Administra-
tion program was recently accred-
ited by the National Association of
SchtKils of Public Affairs and Ad-
ministration (NASPAA) for a seven-
year period.
There are also plans for a new

The biggest change comes with
theretirementotMr. 1 lerbertC arlton,
the departmental advisor. Mr.
Carlton retired this summer after 36
years at ECU. He was one ot the
i iriginal members of the department
when it was formed in 1464.
Dr. Conradt replaced Carlton as
the department's chair. He received
his Ph.D at Brown University in
Rhode Island and also studied at the
University of Cologne in Germany
and the London School of Econom-
"I was attracted by the school's
ECU's potential, in a very up and
coming part of the state, and the
challenge of leading a department
Conradt said.
Conradt comes to ECU from the
University of Florida wherein taught
for 25 years, specializing in Euro-

Justice Rehnquist
The Political Science Department
has 16 full-time faculty members
with doctorates and three part-time
professors. All full-time faculty
members have doctorates or are
finishing up as required by ECU.
'Traditionally we've had some
of the colleges best professors.
Eamon and Carlton were teachers
of the year and Scavo was a finalist.
(Student) evaluations are consis-
tentlv above the college average
Conradt said.
There are also three new addi-
tions in the department. Dr. Sheen
Rajmairareceived herPh-D. from the
University of Colorado and has
taught at George Washington Uni-
versity and the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is a spe-
cialist in international relations and
will be teaching International rela-
tions and Asian politics.
Mr. Carl McCurley comes to ECU
from Indiana University and teaches
American government Dr. Bryan
Harbour is a visiting professor who
has a law degree and Ph.D from
Chapel Hill. He will be teaching judi-
cial poli tics concerningconsti tutiona
law and the Supreme Court.
Any student interested in a law
career should stop by and see him
Conradt said.
There a re a round 140 undergradu-
ate students and about 120 graduate
students in the department. There
are no undergraduate sub-depart-
ments in political science. However,
there is a lot of room to put together
a concentration, Conradt said.
Many political science majors go
to law school, business school, gradu-
ate work in public administration as
well as working in local, state and
national government and commu-
nity health.
"Political science is a liberal arts
major. The BA doesn't prepare you
for any specific work, the graduate
department will prepare you. We
think Political Science is a flexible
major you can do a lot with in the
public and private sector Conradt
There will be new courses in vari-
ous subjects offered this school year.
New courses will be offered in politi-
cal leadership, South Asia politics
and public policy in the media. Plans
are in effect for new courses in inter-
national relations, Latin American
studies, urban politics, women in
politics and a North Carolina polil
class taught bv Dr. Thomas Eamon,
an authority on southern politics
"We encourage our students to
get invoked in campus, as well as
national politics Conradt said.
Students seem to enjoy their time
in political science classes, despite
the demands of the department.
"The Department of Political Sci-
ence here at ECU, for me has been
both demanding and rewarding. It
has helped meconsiderably in prepa-
ration for further academic studies
said Erik Avers a senior political sci-
ence major.

million in endowments which are
invested into three groups: Student
Development, Faculty Enrichment
and Program Enhancement
Student Development will re-

distributed into five categories
Merit-Based Scholarships, Gradu-
ate Fellowships, NCAA Scholar

Faculty Enrichment will receive
$7.5 million which which will be

Professorships and Distinguished
Professorships,Research Initiatives
and Teaching Enhancements and
Endowed Lectureships.
Program Enhancement will re-
ceive $8.5 million with funds being
distributed into five categories: En-
dowment for the Visual and Per-
forming Arts, Library Collections,
Initiatives to Improve Public
Schools, Program-Specific Gifts in
Schools and Departments and In-
ternational Studies Program.
ECU also seeks $16 million in
Campus Development with funds
going toward Ficklen Stadium Ex-
pansion and Minges Coliseum
Renovation, Jovner Library Addi-
tion, Leo W. JenkinsCancer Center,
Diabetes Center, Center for Alco-

Although it is optimistic that tire
campaign goal for $50 million will
be reached in December of 1994,
ECU will continue to campaign for
one additional year.
"Some areas will not be fully

Volunteer to fight illiteracy
Did you know that approximately one of
able to read this, you could help improve the
situation by getting in contact with The Lit-
eracy Volunteers of America in Pitt County.
The program's director ,Rena Eller, asserts
that the number of persons requesting literacy
assistance vastly outnumbers the amount of
volunteers on hand. Needless to say, more
volunteers are needed.
The fact of the matter is that illitera-gs
on the rise and if measures are nofTaken to
Because education ijJMdmber one

economic staJfti Hietoftfjry to read is crucial.
Thing! �fici a?ading a letter from a
loved one rtiposing a grocery list are
monumentaoo'stacles in the everyday life of
the illiterate. You can just imagine how diffi-
cult it is for them to try to find gainful employ-
As a matter of fact, 15 million adults
holding jobs today are functionally illiterate
and 60 of the unemployed lack the basic
skills necessary to be trained for high tech jobs.
The latter information is reflected in the
statistics showing that the high school drop-
out rate is 29 in this country; in Japan, the ra te
is 5 and in Russia, 2.
While the picture is not looking toobright,
Literacy Volunnteers of Amarica is making an
impact. Since 1962 they have started pro-
grams in 44 states and have reached out to over
350,000 individual seeking to improve their
literacy skills,
Just think, if each student at ECU took
the time, we could probably eradicate the illit-
eracy dilemma in our little corner of the world.
While a noble andworthwhile endeavor
for all people involved in the fight against
illiteracy, those ECU students who plan to at-
tend any professional school after their under-
graduate education will benefit. Most law and
medical schools look favorably upon volunteer
service and some requrie a certain amount be
accomplished in order to graduate. Having
Literacy Volunteer service on your resumecould
give you the edge over your peers in the very
competitive selection process.
In order to meet the challenge of teaching
someone to read, the Literacy Volunteers of
America in Pitt County will sponsor a 15-hour
tutor training workshop on Mondays and Thurs-
days beginning in mid-January. The sessions
begin at seven p.m. and end at 9:30 pm. If you
are interested and would like further informa-
tion ,please feel free to call Rena Eller at 752-
Imagine the courage it takes for some-
one who is illiterate to ask for help. It would
be disgraceful for even one call to go unan-
The staff of The East Carolinian believes
the courage displayed by those asking for
assistance should be matched; the need for
volunteers could easily be met by the stu-
dent body here at East Carolina University.
Be a hero and strive to assist others. You
could find yourself in a rewarding situation
where you can give the gift of literacy.
The few hours spent by volunteers
teaching basic reading skills each month will
be felt for generations. When you measure
the impact volunteering can have against
the time spent, everyone is clearly a winner.
Modern jobs diminish life's essence
Money, politics and laziness
"� by Brian Hall
Everyone in the world to-
day seems to be a slave to duty,
uty binds each and everyone of
us to occupations and responsi-
bilities that most of us do not
want, yet'we accept them will-
ingly or otherwise because we
fear personal freedom.
Aldous Huxley's senti-
ments on this matter have a defi-
nite ring of truth: "They (human-
ity) intoxicate themeselves with
work so they won't see how they
really are
From childhood, we are
baptized with the credo of work's
beneficence versus the heretical
influence that leisure might have
on us. We are told " idle hands
make work for the devil and
that laziness is an extended flir-
tation with chaos.
Stability, which stems from
everyone doing his or her duty,
must be maintained. To deviate
from the cosmic order of things,
in which work is central, is an act
of deviance against its omnipo-
tent Creator
During the course of our
lives, we will be continued to be
reminded of both the necessity
and the virtue of work at
nauseaum. These messages have
been with us forever and will
remain as such until we become
work for the gravedigger. Aside
from the familial encouragement
of hard work, the first place one
usually encounters the dogma of
dutiful labor is in the classroom.
One of my earliest recollec-
tions from my elementry school
years was having the fable, The
Ant and the Grasshopper read to me
in class. I recall how the tale por-
trayed the unproductive, yet con-
tented, grasshopper in contrast to
the serious and industrious ant.
The effectiveness of the
story's moral message was inten-
sified by the teacher adopting a
harsh and judgemental to me
when reading about the grasshop-
per When the story was finished,
myself and the other kids had
learned how preferable laboring
was to degenerative idleness.
Thus, the teacher was suc-
cessful in indoctrinating us with
the Protestant work ethic and
capitalism's redeeming powers
via a quaint child's tale.
From that time forward, my
conscience has been burdened by
feellings of guilt whenever I fail to
be productive or resourceful.
Furthernore, 1 have seen and felt
society's disapproval towards
those who are not enthusiastic
about working or capable of
working for that matter.
Anybody who receives gov-
ernment assistance such as wel-
fare, regardless of whether or not
they have a legitimate right to this
monetary aid, is perceived as a
grasshopper sponging off others,
while other persons who labor
justtosurviveareconsidered righ-

teous like the ant.
I do not wish to digress too ,
far from my main topic by dwell- .
ing on ants and grasshoppers, but
I think most entomologists would i
be inclined to agree that the ant is
nota verymoralbug.Thinkabout
how many harmless picnics have,
been ruined by ant's pirating
someone's lunch basket. The ant
would probably make a better
role model for corporate execu-
tives than schoolchildren.
While I do not dispute the
fact that work is necessary for
survival or at least economic
well-being, I feel that society
emphasizes business and work-
ing too much.
Refering back to Huxley's
comment, I believe that because
people have been taught since
birth to remain constantly active
that to suddenly stop and pause
to reflect meditatively on life
would cause a feedling of awk-
After all, we are what we
do and what we do provides us
with purpose. Sadly enough, this
statement is a reality for many
Sadder still is the life of one
who has never stopped to smell
the roses because he or she has
been too busy planting them.
There will always be work to be
done, but you and I will not
always be here to do it. Life is
brief. Work is continuous.
- Letters to the Editor
One never knows when a
moment of epiphany will strike.
They can happen at the
strangest times and in the most
unexpected places One hap-
pened recently as 1 was flipping
through the channels on TV. (If
you do not know what an
epiphany is, it is a sudden intui-
tive revelation.)
As I passed by MTV, I came
across Kurt Loeder doing one of
those rock news updates that he
does. Normally 1 cannot tolerate
MTV, but the news updates can
be interesting, so I listened for a
One of the tidbits of infor-
mation was that rapper Snoop
Doggy Dogg was being ar-
raigned on murder charges in
Los Angeles. Nothing too shock-
ing here, since the music indus-
try has known that this wascom-
ing for some time. What really
got me was Loeder's assurance
to his listeners that this would
r.ot prevent Mr. Dogg's appear-
ing on the MTV video music
While I heartily endorse the
concept that a man is innocent
until proven guilty, thisset me to
thinking. If being charged with
murder is not enough to be re-
moved from MTV, then whatex-
actly does one have to do before
MTV will not put one on the air?
A more personal such mo-
ment happened to me just last
Thursday at.olden Corral. Sud-
denly it occurred to me that I will
never make it to Congress. For-
merly, I liked lo believe that
someday 1 would run tor Con-
gress (and win, of course � no
pra ever dreams of running for
anrJiing and losing).
Noial. however, 1 realize that
i w, howevi
I do not HSVe the basic tempera-
ment or nature to be a successful
Politicians should only need
honesty, intelligence, open-
mindedness and good judgment.
In reality, many other things are
needed to be successful. These
things which are needed, even
demanded by the American
people, are many of the things
which are contributing to the dis-
trust of the political system.
To be elected in the current
political climate requires first and
foremost money. Now, while it
has always been true that a candi-
date for office needed money,
nowadays one needs big time
money. Money with a capital "M
Money for TV commercials.
Money for media consultants.
Money for campaign staffers and
workers. Money to get one's mes-
sage out to the people.
This becomes a viciouscycle.
People refuse toexpend any effort
to learn about where candidates
sLind on the issues. They refuse to
go see the candidates make
speeches in person. They refuse to
even read reports of speeches
made in the newspaper.
Instead, we prefer to get our
news in short sound bites on the
evening news � the shorter the
better. We do not want to have to
spend too much time thinking
about these things. So the office
seeker must collect more money
to go to the people. This creates
more alienation in the electorate
and they become more unwilling
to spend energy or time on cam-
As a result, the candidates
end up doing one of two things to
get votes, both of which are un-
healthy for the country. Either the
candidate will attack her oppo-
nent, or she will promise to solve
the problems of the country.
The fi rst case, running nega-
tive ads, has been beaten to death
lately, so let me just say that we all
know how adversely these affect
the body politic.
The second case, however,
may be even worse. First, it rein-
forces the already too prevalent
idea that the government is here
to solve our problems.
This sort of view that the
government should be our watch-
ful parent, protecting us from harm
is everywhere. We believe that the
governmentshould protect us from
everything � from bad food to
lack of health care. What ever hap-
pened to people taking care of
Moreover, since solving the
problems of the world are beyond
human capacity, the failureof poli-
ticians to keep their prom ises helps
to fuel the cynicism that all politi-
cians are incompetent and(or) li-
Unfortunately, there does not
seem to be anv solution tor this
problem. Unless the American
people decide to get off their duffs
and investigate candidates tor
themselves something which
seems unlikely, given most

figures in our country will likely
To the Editor:
If you (Shannon (.ay ' were a representative
of all "genuinely alternativ e folk I would dismiss
you all for being as shallow and insincere as the
dreaded "music corporations" and "fashion de-
signers 1 know, however, that the opinion ex-
pressed is not representative. Do we want to open
people's minds, making ourselves walking bill-
boards for that cause, only to scoff at the accumu-
lating following? The recent Cobain converts mighy
equate in some minds to the Roman guard who
decided Jesus Christ was the son of Cod after he
died, but perhaps they are in fact a new church.
So now there's no place left for you "genu-
ine alternatives" to go. Everything is acceptable.
So what if fashion no longer makes your "state-
ment but then I suppose it's a lot easier to put
on thrift store flannels and feel intellectually-
superior then sicl it is to open our minds and
mouths and say something worthy of that supe-
riority Those like you can only be described as
selfish evangelists who can think of nothing more
than of all the space getting taken up in heaven
by the converts. Sorry you don't feel cool any-

"A Drop in the Bucket" is
just what it claim to be: a very

bucket of American media opin-

Greenville is a cultural

ture,certainly- Art exhibitions
are constantly taking place at
Gray Gallery. The Upper
Crust Bakery plays host to
regular poetry readings.
Plays both big and small are
put on at McGinnis and
Wright theatres. Lecturers
and poets and respected

cialized minority of the popu-

particularly good.
I suppose that's to be ex-

ence by nature.
r But what about so-called
law culture? Movies and mu-
sic and magazines and books?
As a devoted fan of these low
culture art forms, I've had
reason to be appalled at any
number of things lately, and
it's time to blow off some
The latest thing that's got-
ten under my skin is the
choice of movies in this town.
While movie selection here
has never been good, some
major films haven't made
their way into Greenville's
cultural black hole.
You'd think that with four
theaters, we could get a wider
variety of films. But Tim
Burton's Ed Wood, which is
catching lots of praise (and
talk of Oscar nominations),
can't be seen here. More

Living is not easy in Dogpatch, USA
Brian Hall
Staff Writer
Once one of the staples of
American entertainment, the
light musical comedy is sadly
becominga dying form. So those
nostalgic for the good old days
gladly welcomed the musical
comedy "Li'l Abner which
opened The East Carolina Play-
house 1994-95 season last
While "Li'l Abner" is not the
best example of this form (for
example, "Guys and Dolls
which was performed last
spring on the ECU stage, and I
think is clearly superior), it is
much preferred over other re-
cent musical comedies, such as
the simply dreadful "Annie
another cartoon turned into a
Johnny Mercer and Gene de
Paul, the authors of
"Li'lAbner were able to main-
tain the cartoonish nature of
the characters without resort-
ing to the sort of smarminess
which ruined "Annie
The plot of "Abner" (both
the comic strip and the play)
revolves around the denizens
of Dogpatch, Missitucky, spe-
cifically Li'l Abner and Daisy
Mae. Daisy wants to catch
Abner on Sadie Hawkins Day
soshe can marry him, and
Abner does not want to be
caught. It was from this simple

ated that Al Capp was able to
produce one of the most memo-
rable comic strips in American
In this sort of play the plot
just serves as an excuse for the
characters to be on stage, and it
is they who make this play so
delightful. The characters have
to drive the show, for though
this is a musical, the music is
without a doubt the worst part
of the show.
The musicians from the ECU
School of Music, led ably by Scott
Carter, did the best they could
with what they had been given
to play. The cast infused the mu-
sical numbers with an energy
which can almost overcome the
music's weaknesses.
However, in the end we must
admit that "Abner" is, like
Aladdin, that most unusual crea-
ture � a musical which succeeds
despite its songs. Only the show-
stopping "Jubilation T.
Cornpone" matches the quality
of the rest of the show.
The two leads, Tara Bost and
Jeremy P. Bolich (as Daisy and
Abner respectively), did a fine
job. However, as is almost inevi-
table in this sort of production,
several of the supporting char-
acters steal the show.
The longest and loudest
laughs and cheers went to Alecia
Hillis and Brian Davis as
Mammy and Pappy Yokum. The
combination of Davis' physical
comedy and Hillis' impeccable
delivery and timing were ter-
rific, and entrance! and delighted
the large opening night crowd.
Overlooked by the audience,
but just as good, was Michael F.
Brooks as Marryin'Sam. Brooks,

when the voice of the president
stopped suddenly. After wait-
ing for a few moments, Davis

This up-to-date reference was
merely one of many throughout
the production, which brings up
the two minor nits to pick with
the performance. The references
were funny and delightful at
first. The audience especially
loved the one about anyone be-
ing able to stop N.C. State on the
one-yard line.
However, after a while, they
became tiring (and everyone
should know by now that refer-
ences to Generation X are not
amusing). The second is that if

plays of more than three hours
at eight o'clock, could it please
start them on time?

Jennifer Coleman
Staff Writer
All you need is love or so we
thought. According to Norman
Panama and Melvin Frank's musi-
cal comedy "Li'l Abner you also
need money, which is something
necessary for human survival and a
good pair of running shoes. What
does all this have to do with love?
Just ask Li'l Abner and Daisy
Mae, or any of the rest of the
Dogpatch citizens, and they'll be glad
to tell you. Or just go see The East
Carolina Playhouse's presentation of
this farcical adaptation of Al Capp's
famous comic strip.
The play centers around the town
of Dogpatch, USA. The citizens of
Dogpatch are simple country folk,
rich in tradition and honor.Tradition
such as the annual Sadie Hawkins'
Day race, when all of the unmarried
women in Dogpatch try to catch a
husband,and theComponeMee tin

One such event is the imminent
bombing of Dogpatch which the
citizens are bound and determined
to prevent. And how can they pre-
vent it? Why, with Mammy Yokum's

the first play of the East Carolina
Playhouse season.

Streep runs wild
Fair evokes sights and sounds
It's a very special time for every-
one when the fair comes to town. To
most, it is a must-do experience, an
experience filled with memories that
will be talked about for weeks. All
last week, the Pitt Co. Fair was in
town. The fair can always guarantee
the people of Pitt Co. a fun and excit-
ing time. I went to this wondrous
creation with these thoughts in my
head, and I was not disappointed.
This year's theme was "The Year
of the Family The folks who orga-
nized the whole extravaganza were
hoping to see more families coming
out to partake in the festivities. There
were several indoor booths that por-

Meryl Streep has fashioned a
film career true to her roots,
which formed at Vassar College
and the Yale School of Drama.
Streep has had a penchant for
characters who have had such
strong personali ties that no room
remained for any personal at-
tributes to shine through. Meryl
Streep could act in anything it
seemed and the audience would
accept her per i ermance each time
because the viewer had no idea
who Meryl Streep really was.
Streep acted like a chameleon
changing colors to fit into any
film in which she stared.
Part of the allure of Streep has
been her reticence to discuss her
personal life (a husband of 16
years and four children) with the
press. Streep has always re-
mained a consunimate profes-
sional who feels her work, not
her private life, should matter.
Finally, Meryl Streep has made
a film that insiders say is theclosest
the actress has come to playing
herself. Streep plays a woman
named Gail who is a teacher of
history at a school for the deaf and
who used to be a white water raft
guide in her newest filrn, Tlie River
As The Rner Wild opens, Gail is
planning to take her family on a
trip down a river in Montana to
celebrate her son Roarke's (Joe
Mazzello) birthday. I ler husband
Tom (David Straithairn) reluc-
tantly bows out at the last minute
due to work commitments only to
charter a flight at the last minute to
join his family.
Gail is a devoted mother, gifted
teacher (v hich is evident as she
teaches Roarke how to fly fish) and
a skilled rafter. Streep uses no ac-
cents other than her own and im-

make partial sense of it and l think l
get the idea, but maybe not. The
"Mess Age" part makesa lot of sense.
If you know P.P. at all, you can
guess that this album has some po-
litical tracks on it. Overall, "Muse" is
possibly the group's strongest politi-

Tlie hardcore beats, innovative
mix of sound bitesand samples, clas-

self-destructive things that are tak-

in the middle trying to hold the whole
thing together. The real clincher is
the sound bite that begins that song
and the album.
It opens with a scene in the future.
It's December 31, 1999 and former
KuKluxKlan leader David Duke has
been elected president of the United
States. Duke then joins the U.S. in a
neo-colonial alliance with European
powers which threatens the survival
of people of color worldwide. The
new alliance's goal is to destroy and
subdue. In the face of such threats,
P.E demands through its booming
sound that people of the world re-
spond. That's a hell of a way to open
an album �fear is a gotxl attention
getter. Fear of a white planet
Many of the songsare centered on
this European international con-
spiracy. "RaceAgainst limeThin
Line Between I .aw and Rape and
"I litler Day" are three such songs.
"Hitler Day" is especially interest
ing. It isbasicallv a protest against the
celebration of Columbus Day; P.E.
equates it with celebrating a Hitler
Day. Columbus' discovery was a
Hitler Day for the native residents of
this continent, and Chuck extends
the sentiments to the treatment of
Afro-Americans in the later devel-
opment of our country. I le may just
a have a point.
"Bedlam 13:13" is the one envi-
ronmental tune but even it is perme-
ated by the conspiracy theory. I'm

it's not all anger. Flavor Flav has a
little solo jam "I Ain't Mad At AH"

his acting prowess as the meek hus-
band who must tind inner fortitude.
Another expectation superseded
by TheRJvei Wild is the filming of the
ratting. Curtis Hanson, the director
(who last worked on 77k Hand That
Rocked the Cradle), fought to get great
shots of the river and the raft. The
budget supposedly ballooned from
$28 million to $44 million because of
1 lanson'sdedication to realistic shots.
My stomach felt queasy at several
points during the film because of the
wonderful cinematography, which
captured the river in all its majesty
and power while conveying the
strength employed by the rafterschal-
lenging the river.
The best expectation to be shat-
tered was that Tlw River Wild would
be a run-ot the-mill action picture
with a female in the lead. Happily,
the film tells a complex tale of a fam-
ily tighting to stay together even be-
fore the river trip begins while grip-
ping the audience with an exciting
action story that thrills the viewer
like the rapids it shows on screen.
The River Wild may make Meryl
Streep a mega-star, as well ashelping
the careers of Bacon and Straithairn,
because it has all the ingredients of a
huge hit. Meryl Streep proves once
again how great an actressshecan be
simply by letting the audience see a
side of herself she has never shown.
On a scale of one to ten, The River
Wild rates an eight.

Columbia, S.C may never be
the same again.
In front of a homecoming crowd
of 70,000-plus at Williams-Brice
Stadium, ECU beat the Gamecocks
56-42 on Saturday afternoon, in
the highest scoring game in either
of the two schools histories.
"It was a win, but it goes against
what I've been trying to get done
at East Carolina said ECU head
coach Steve Logan after victory.
"We've won games like that be-
fore. It's kind of been our histon'
winning 56 to 40-something. We
can't get back into that. If we fall
back into that old East Carolina
crap of trying to win games 60-50,
it ain't gonna get done. We've got
to go back to work on defense
What's more amazing about the
high-scoring game is that neither
team scored in the first quarter.
However, ECU took the game to
another level right away in the
second quarter. Senior running
back Junior Smith (28 carries, 192
yards, 2 TD's) got back into his old
routine of churning out yardage,
and on second down and one from
the USC 25-yard line, Smith broke

ting the Pirates on the board first, 7-
The ECU defense got a huge
boost from linebacker Marvin
Burke, who recovered a fumble off
a Brandon Bennett fumble, giving
ECU the ball back on the USC 19-
yard line. On second and one from
the USC ten-vard line, ECU quar-
terback Marcus Crandell (19-28 for
344 yards, three interceptions and 4
TD's) threw a fade to freshman re-
ceiver Larrv Shannon (4 catches, 76
yards), who used all 6-feet-6-inches
of his bodv to go over two Game-
cocks to make the catch for the
touchdown. Chad Holcomb's ex-
tra point attempt wrsblocked, keep-
ing the score 13-0.
The Pirate defense stood tough
again, forcing three plays and a
punt by Carolina. On the first play
of the drive after the punt, Crandell
found sophomore receiverMitchell
Galloway (4 catches, 127 yards) on
a deep pattern for a 45-yard touch-
down reception. Crandell then
threw a two-yard pass to tight end
Sean Richardson to get the two-
point conversion, making the score
The plethora of scoring did not
end there for ECU. Again, the
Gamecocks werequickly forced to
punt, giving ECU great field posi-
tion on the 44-yard hne. On sec-
ond and two from the two-yard
line, Crandell tossed the b A to a
wide-open Galloway for another
touchdown. Matt Levine's point
after wasunsuccessful, making the
score 27-0. In six minutes of foot-
ball, ECU scored 27 points.
The South Carolina crowd was
shocked. The Gamecocks needed
a big play to bring them back to
life. They got one on Bennett's 56-
yard kick-off return after the ECU
touchdown. This helped set up the
Gamecocks first score of the game,
when USC quarterback Steve
Taneyhill (39-58,451 yards, an in-
terception and 3 touchdowns)
handed off to running back Stanley
Pritchett, who ran eight yards for a
touchdown, making the score 27-
After forcing the Pirates to punt,
USC would score the final points
of the first half on an 11-yard pass
from Taneyhill to senior wide re-
ceiver Kurt Frederick, making the
score 27-14 at the half.
With 10:51 left in the third quar-
ter, the Gamecocks got as close to
the Pirates as they would get all
day. On second and 16 from the
USC 38-yard line, Crandell's pass
was tipped by Galloway, and then
intercepted by Gamecock safety
Chris Abrams, who ran the ball
back 64 yards for a touchdown,
bringing USC within six points, 27-
The Gamecock crowd was back
into the game, but the ECU offense
didn't miss a beat. Thev executed a
ten-play drive of 67 yards that fin-
ished in a trick play from Logan
and special teams. On fourth and
two from the USC 26-yard line, the
Pirates were set to kick a field goal.
Levine caught the snap and threw a
perfect pass to wide open tight end
Scott Richards (4 catches, 71 yards)
for a touchdown, making the score
35-21 with 6:47 left in the quarter.
"I knew that play was going to
work Levine said. "All through-
out practice we worked on that play.
Scott was wide open in the end
zone. All I had to do was lob it up to
him. He made the catch and we got
seven points out of it

Last week, Smith broke the
record previously held by
CarlesterCrumplerSr. of all-time
career rushing leader at ECU. The
monkey was off Smith's back,
finally. The hype of breaking the
record was over, and Smith is
certainly not a football player
who thrives on hype.
Saturday's 192-vard perfor-
mance was his best of the season
so far. Smith was well-prepared
to do damage before the game.
"I just wanted to take the atti-
tude of 'give me the ball Smith
said. "Whenever I got the ball, I
just wanted to help my team out
and just get into the zone. I was

The leadership that Smith
showed in the face of Saturday's

William and Mary scored
early and often as the Tribe
downed ECU 5-1 in men's
CAA soccer action here
Wednesday afternoon.
William and Mary, who is
ranked as high as second in
the nation and is off to their
best start in school history,
began the scoring when for-
ward Waughn Hughes broke
through the Pirate defense on
a solo shot just over five min-
utes into the contest. Twelve
minutes later, Hughes tapped
in a Greg Richards pass that
came off a rebounded corner
kick to put the Tribe up for
At the 24:08 mark, freshman
Wade Barrett received a preci-
sion pass from teammate
Daniel Zickefoose at the left
corner of the penalty box and
drove in a 15-yard shot to
stretch the William and Mary
lead to 3-0.
ECU avoided being the
Tribe's seventh shutout this
season when freshman John
Swaggart sent a header just
past the out-stretched hand of
reserve goalkeeper Scott Pow-
ers four minutes into the sec-
ond half.
"They had some unlucky
shots that probably should
have been made said W&M
coach Al Albert. "The score
could have been a lot closer
really. This is certainly the
toughest conference a team
we've seen so far. They played
very aggressive and put some
pressure on us
The Pirates failed to con-
vert on a wide-open shot when
Dan Staton sent a textbook
style cross-pass to Chris
Padgett at the top of the goalie
box with just under seven min-
utes to play in the first half.
Less than a minute later, ECU
junior Marc Mullin pounded a
shot that hit the left post and
was cleared out. "We just
didn't get any breaks today

they deserve their ranking
