Therapist wins scholarship
Fire kills five in Bloomsburg, Pa.
Homecoming weekend is filled with parades and celebrations at
Bloomsburg University, but this vear's festivities sent many into shock
and sorrow. A fire at the Beta Sigma Delta fraternity house killed five
students. The fire was thought to be extinguished, but it reignited later
in the night. Four residents were able to escape.
First female president to head ivy league college sworn in
Judith Rodin was sworn into her position as president of the
University of Pennsylvania last week in an elaborate ceremony. She
believes in matching education with technology in changing how
undergraduates of the future learn. Rodin grew up in Pennsylvania,
graduated from Penn stet and spent 22 years at Yale University as a
psychologist professor and dean of the graduate school.
Curtain shields art exhibit on censorship
A University of Oregon art exhibit that was originally meant to
protest censorship was covered by a curtain after students and faculty
lodged complaints about some of the artwork. The "See No Evil" exhibit
featured 20 controversial works by artists from across the country. One
painting depicted Star Trek characters Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk
participating in sexual bondage.

Nutritionists at the University of California say an increased fat
intake may actually help you eat less. Researchers found that when
laboratory rats were fed meals containing the same amount of calories
but different levels of fat content, those receiving more fat ate less
frequently and consumed fewer calories. The research indicates that fat
triggers a hormonal release that signals to the brain that the body is
College president moves into dorm room
Although the new oivcampus resident of McKendree College in
Illinois attended classes and participated in student activities, the new

moved into the halls for one week just to see how dorm life really is,
Dennis said. He really wanted to know what the food in the dining halls
tastes like and how it feels when the alarm goes off at 7 a.m. and your
roommate starts screaming at you to shut it off.

tion. Characters are much
easier to explain he said.
In addition to having col-
lected well over 15,000 issues,
Palumbo also has some expe-
rience with writing comics.
"One of the things that im-
pressed me most is how well
three writers knew how to
get a story across. The quality
of a comic book depends on
three aspects: how well the
writers actually tell the story,
how much theeditors improve
the story, and how well the
artist interprets the plot in the
actual layout he said.
While working directly
with comics, Palumbo also
noticed some disadvantages
in the actual production pro-
cess, one of the most obvious
being the tight deadlines.
"When you're having to
turn out about 60 stories a
month, obviously they don't
always come out as master-
pieces he said. "Some other
disadvantages are generated
by having to comply with
the comic code.
"The story content has to
be approved for reading by
children. Also, the good forces
must always triumph over the
evil forces or it's no longer a
comic Palumbo said.
"It takes about 40 hours to
complete one comic book.
Most of this time, about 30
hours, is devoted to produc-
ing the script. Then the script
has to be matched to the art-
work, and because of space
l egula tions, it all has to be lim-
ited to about 22 pages.
Economy is very important
he said.
In order to keep a working
knowledge of recent happen-
ings in the world of comics,
Palumbo continues to add
about $60 worth of new issues
to his collection every month.
Palumbo says his entire col-
lection is probably worth be-
tween 15 and 20 thousand dol-
"I would be surprised if I
had any one issue worth over
$100 since I only started col-
lecting in the '60s. I've never
paid more than $7 for one he
said. "I spend about $700 a
year now, and it's tax deduct-
As far as preferences go,
Palumbo does not have a fa-
vorite character based solely
on the personality of the char-
acter, but he does have favor-
ite writers, and the writer can
make or break the character.
One character he has en-
joyed following is Dreadstar,
originally written by Jim
Starlin for Marvel Comics, but
is now handled by the
VenturaMalibu label.
" Dreadstar has always been
handled by the best writers.
The character is now in the
hands of Peter David who is
currently the best comic
writer he said.
Some other comic charac-
ters that have been fortunate
enough to have good writers
are the Fantastic Four,
Spiderman and the X-men.
"Unfortunately, these com-
ics tend to be overexposed and
over complicated. When a
comic suffers from too much
plot, it can be quite difficult to
follow Palumbo said.
Although Palumbo has an
obvious passion for fantasy
literature and did enjoy his
experiences with w riting com-
ics, he says that he has never
considered a career in comics.
"I do it for fun he says.

Murder of children shocks America
America's attention recently was
transfixed to what appeared to be the
abduction of two children from their
mother. Newscast after newscast showed
the mother lamenting the horrors of the
Most of us believed her and felt the
sorrow. Hundreds of citizens volunteered
their time to assist in the search effort and
at least that many police officers
participated as well.
When the hoax was revealed, the
� nation, if not the world, was shocked.
After crying wolf in front of the world,
Susan Smith confessed to murdering her
two children. Americans feel betrayed and
astounded by the cruel turn in the
situation. How could a mother do that to
her own children?
TEC does not have the answer to the
latter question; however, we do share the
hurt and frustration. This sort of barbaric
behavior is disgraceful, and to say the
least, tragic. Consequently, it seems that
after the initial shock is over, anger is the
overriding emotion.
Her false accusations led to the
exacerbation of racial tensions between
the black and white communities and
wasted a lot of persons' time searching for
a phantom kidnapper.
While many Americans may have a
forgiving spirit about past transgressions,
the cold-blooded murder committed by
Susan Smith and her concurrent false
accusations has probably earned her the
title of most hated person in America.
Is Susan Smith's tragedy a mere
reflection of our society in general? The
failed marriage and adultery draw an eerie
parallel to Euripides play, Medea. Often
times, children wrongly end up paying
for the mistakes adults make. Is this
behavior commonplace in our society?
If anything, the episode has caused
our nation to take one step back to
reexamine our national conscience, if we
have one.
Perhaps the media is to blame. As the
play Medea shows, this kind of stuff has
been going on for thousands of years right?
Even if the tragedy has been over reported,
it just goes to show how little we have
changed in over two thousand years.
Mass media distorts sense of reality
by Brian Hall
Now that we know the
truth about Susan Smith and
theevents in Union, S.C. ,1 think
that we should reflect on what
this situation tells us about the
mass media and reality.
Mrs. Smith, after many
tearful and heartrending pleas
on behalf of her missing chil-
dren, has now been revealed to
be a self-confessed murderer.
The same news media, which
in an effort to attract viewers
were exploiting her false grief,
are now exploiting her guilt for
the same reason.
This media event could
not have gone better for the
networks if they had scripted it
themselves. It also tells us two
important things about what
we see in the media, especially
on television news.
First, most reporting on
television is on the same intel-
lectual level as gossip. Take for
example, last week's plane
crash in Indiana. This was a
terrible tragedy, and all our
hearts go out to the friends and
relatives of the victims.
CNN, however, insisted
on broadcasting hours of live
coverage from the scene, pass-
ing along whatever latest ru-
morhappened tocomeup.This
was an attempt to appeal to the
worst instincts in their viewers
� the same ones which make
us slow down to look at car
Second, and more impor-
tantly, we should realize that
reality is really quite different
than what we see in the media.
In the case of Smith, this is ob-
vious. This problem, however,
goes beyond just this one case.
We have largely become a soci-
ety that does not believe some-
thing exists unless we see it on
TV, and one that believes that
anything that we see must be
For example, the most
popular and violent show
among American kids right
now is no doubt the "Mighty
Morphin Power Rangers Be-
cause young children see real
humans solving their problems
with violence, two young chil-
dren recently accidentally killed
another child while pretending
to be Power Rangers.
Now I am not blaming the
show for causing this death. (Just
as an aside in defense of an un-
fairly maligned show � no one
has ever killed anyone while
imitating Barney.) However, as
a result of this incident and oth-
ers, the show recently has taken
to adding a short clip at the end
of some episodes in which the
We have become
a societythat
does not believe
unless wesee it
on TV.� �
cast members tell "real" children
not to be violent towards each
Just how confusing must
this be for kids? To see their he-
roes, in the course of one half-
hour, send such divergent mes-
sages. Moreover, obviously the
shows producers believe that
such a message will mean more
if the kids see it on TV.
Those in charge of the mass
media, when faced with com-
plaints about the amount of sex
and violence, in movies or on
TV, usually fall back on the de-
fense that they are merely re-
flecting reality.
This is pure poppycock.
Just as one statistical example, in
movies especially, and on televi-
sion to a lesser extent, men have
a vast majority of thedialogue�
on average over 60 per cent. Does
this mean that men in "reality"
dominate conversations to the
same extent? Of course not.
Another example is the di-

Our most valuable treasure threatened: children
In recent media coverage,
there has been an altogether dis-
turbing amount of violence in
which children have been the
unwary and helpless victims.
That such events could conceiv-
ably affect the lives of society's
zens is both ap-
palling and tragic.

vorce rate among entertainment
couples. Widely used as a de-
fense for this is the oft quoted
and fictional 50 percent divorce
rate. It is true that the ratio of
marriages to divorces for certain
years is two to one. To say that
this means that marriages have a
50 percent failure rate shows a
complete lack of statistical
To illustrate this point,
imagine if there were more di-
vorces than marriages for a pe-
riod of time in the country.
Would this mean that there
would be a more than 100
percent chance of marriages
failing? Or, to choose an even
more obvious example, sup-
pose that the ratio of births to
deaths was two to one. Would
anyone that said that the odds
of someone dying in their life-
time was therefore 50 per-
cent be listened to?
The facts about mar-
riage are that most people are
married and will stay that
way until death. Those of us
(including my wonderful
wife, Bess, and I) who are mar-
ried will testify that married life
bears little resemblance to any of
the many dysfunctional families
that one can see in movies and
on TV.
One of the silliest things
that people in the media say is
that they are not glamorizing
the violence, casual sex, drug
use and foul language, which
they display endlessly. The
plain fact is that whatever is

valuable resource Hoover's
statement provides all the more
reason for America to protect
its investment in our youth by
insuring that they are raised in
a safe and happy environment
conducive to healthy growth.
What is to become of us as
a society when our own pre-
cious children are not safe from
harm? What future can we pos-

of a hostile world where chil-

Insuring the welfare of the
world's children is the respon-

Letters to the Editor-
To the Editor:
Halloween was made a "Christian" festival by
the Roman Catholic Church in 834 A.D. It was
originally celebrated by pagans centuries before
the New Testament Church. The earliest
celebrations were held by the Druids.
The meaning for pagans is that evil spirits visit
the living, and if they are made welcome or
TREATED, they will leaveyou in peace. If not, they
will TRICK you by casting an evil spell on you.
The meaning for "Christians" and pagan
factions by giving each other a little of its own
flavor in this curious blend of "Christianity" and
paganism, but it is a heathen celebration and should
be avoided by all TRUE Christians.
For you see, God has given the complete list of
pagan festivals in His Holy Bible (Levitcus 23). The
day that truly honors all saints is called the Feast of
Firstfruits or Pentecost. It pictures the small early
harvest of Christians � the Firstfruits � who
will be born again in the first resurrection at
Christ's return and rule with Him during the
In fact, Halloween is the direct opposite of
another Holy Day called The Day of Atonement
(The Fast). Halloween pictures evil spirits
visiting and playing tricks on humans, whereas
The Day of Atonement pictures the banishment
of Satan (fulfilled just after Christ returns).
Halloween is definitely a TRICK by Satan
who must get a big laugh to see unsuspecting
"Christians" do the exact opposite of what
God commands and actually honor the devil
and his demons. But The Day of Atonement
WILL come to pass sic and Satan and his
demons will be put away. May God speed that

To the Editor
Your polky of reserving the right to edit letter of
opinion for decency is a fallacy. It would be impossible
to write something more indecent than the following
comic strip which appeared in your October 13,1994
edition of The East Carolinian (The Blood of the Lamb).
If the is me type of garbage that will allow these
artists (?) to get a degree from ECU I thank God I never
attended college.
Yes, you guessed it, I am a Catholic, but I do have
a sense of humor and got a chuckle out of their tying the
Mass schedule in with Bingo. But is sic stops
there because it appears then they lack a plot so
they merely filled the rest of the comic strip(?) with
any indecent word or action their small brains (?)
could think of.
I have one final question. Does ECU have a
Weirdo degree?
Yours truly in disgust,
RW Dorney
Greenville, NC
Editor's note�This isn't the only letter
we received from the local Catholic community
about "Blood of the Lamb but it is the only
one written as a Letter to the Editor, and it
serves to reflect the comments we have gotten.
While "Lamb" is intended to utilize the
structure of he Catholic Church as a setting
for a vampire story, the Church itself is not
described as a willing vehicle for vampires or
any other form of evil.
Each official of the Church who is targeted
by the heroes has previously been identified as
an impostor who is perverting the office they
hold in an effort to promote a vampirical
"shadow church For instance, Father
Flannagan, who is currently being pursued by
the heroes, has already been identified as a
vampire (note the fangs and use of obscenity),
so readers who have been following the strip
since August are already aware that our heroes
are not killing the innocent and the faithful.
No attempt has been made by the creators
of the strip or The East Carolinian to suggest
that the Church is in reality a haven for evil,
or that officials of the Church are monsters.
Another point apparently in need of
clarification is that not all of the strips in
Pirate Comics are meant to be funny. The term
"comic strips and books" tends to leave the
expectation of "Family Circus" and "Archie
and Jughead Comic pages run "Mary
Worth "Modesty Blaise "Prince Valiant"
and other strips using extended narrative for
other than comical effect. And so do we.
"Omega Quest "Nick O' Time "Hachiro
"Demon Seed" and other strips that we have
run for the past six years reflect the diversity
of genres in the comics medium, be it through
superpowers or smartasses.
A character in "Phoebe" just revealed her
homosexuality and another in "Moppets"
declared he was bisexual. We've got talking
rabbits and ducks in "Magic 101" and "Lake
Imp US A" and let's not forget the militaristic,
transvestite squirrels in If Pigs Could Fly
And then there's "Fred's Corner which
doesn't need much explanation (but we have
had two scenes of vomiting on the page since
August; that's gotta be a record).
We are providing those who want to work
in the media the chance to hone their craft
Also, of course, we hope the comics page
entertains our audience. And, for the most
part, it is. Not all strips are for everyone,
though, and we suggest readers decide for
themselves what they wish to read or not read.

A Drop
in THE
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
"A Drop in the Bucket" is just
what it claims to be: a very tiny
drop in the great screaming bucket
of American media opinion. Take
it as you will.
They put a television in my
laundromat. Oh, there had al-
ways been one there, but it
was off in a corner where you
could ignore it if you preferred
to do your laundry in relative
peace. But now they've hung
this bloody great box right
over the front-loading wash-
ers. It blares the sounds of
whatever idiot programming
is polluting the airwaves at
the moment, distracting me
from more important pur-
suits, like reading or watch-
ing the clothes go round and
round in the dryers.
I'm reminded of the night-
marish future world of the old
Max Headroom show. In that
world, television was every-
where; even the numerous
bums living in the junkyards
had perfectly-functioning TV
sets, by order of law. In fact,
TV was so all-controlling that
it was illegal to have an off-
switch unless you were privi-
leged enough to have a license
for one. Nobody needs that
much TV, but our society is
swiftly approaching that
point. It's getting so I can't
escape the glowing eye of the
television screen anywhere
but in my own home.
You doubt it's that bad?
Perhaps not, but I did learn
recently that many places in
New York City have installed
TV sets over the urinals in
their restrooms.
Let's reflect on this a mo-
ment, shall we? The human
body takes, what, 30 seconds
to a minute to expel its liquid
wastes? Are we such slaves to
entertainment, do we have
such short attention spans,
that we need to be amused
during this insignificant pe-
riod of time? Our own bodily
functions aren't enough to
keep our attention anymore?
Frighteningly enough, I feel
like that's becoming the case.
When I think of the slack jaws
of the other laundromat pa-
trons as they stare blankly up
at the mighty TV god hover-
ing over the washers, I can see
some of those eyes not being
able to follow a simple stream
of urine without absolute
boredom. And that's what
Americans seem to fear the
most. Boredom.
We make timesaving de-
vices that only give us more
time to fill our lives up with
useless activities, to avoid

he was playing the tambourine and

They started off the show with

cently released op. Judging from
crowd response, people were cer-
tainly glad to ha ve theConnel Is back
home. "This Time" followed and
had so many fans crowd surfing
that they were bumping into each
other over the heads of the audi-
ence. When the strong red lights
came up for "Motel a mosh pit
appeared and fans of all ages were
involved; it included high school
kids,collegestudentsand folks fight-
ing mid-life crises. Since this track
had the crowd in a frenzy, Doug
MacMillan slowed for a solo acous-
tic jam to tame the audience. The
band ended the concert with
"New Boy and this song had
the tirst four or five rows of spec-

Small audience visits Egypt

Staff Writer
Craziness and energy in a pande-
monium sandwich was the only item
on the Attic's menu last Thursday
night. New York City's six man, over-
extravagant, pseudo-rap showmen
Too Skinnee J's opened the feast for
headliners Egypt at 11 p.m. to 25 or so
Too Skinnee J's are newcomers to
Greenville, and when I talked to their
frontmen J Slim and Special J, they
enthusiastically said: "We are fortu-
nate to be in Greenville to spread the
skinnee message
Their on-stage antics, plaid '70s
disco outfits and their version of the
Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight"
were certainly a pathetic sight to see.
Even though they put a lot of effort
into the show, they simply couldn't
get the crowd (if you consider that few
people a crowd) into their groove.
For the rest of Greenville, Egypt is a
band that must be seen live. If you've
been waiting for a band to come along
and really shake your frame, this one
certainly fills the order. Their soulful,
funky metallic kind of groove is one that
can only be fully appreciated if you're in
the audience.
Egypt is currently on tour promoting
their recent debut release, Soul Hammer.
Their disc has been sparked by surpris-
ingly good sales and normally promis-
ing turnouts at their live shows though
frontman Jeff Brodnax, formerly of 24-7
Spyz, reluctantly admits, "Greenville's
a town we just can't seem to break
The fourth song played was "Posi-
tive Vibe and it got the small crowd
going. "Soul Hammer" followed it and
was certainly the most popular with
those of us who were there. However,
the track that was certainly the best
was a love song called "Intro
Bassist Andy Waldeck, with his
powerful backing vocals added the
final ingredient to frontman Jeff
Brodnax's talent as a lead vocalist.
Egypt's sound is refined, but still
moody and unpredictable.
Egypt ended their set with
"People Come Together What a
way to end a show! It summed up
what Egypt was all about � in
your face intensity that hasn't come
through Greenville in a long time.
Their encore, "Live Like That
brought the small but mighty
crowd to its feet for the grand fi-
nale. Egypt's strong harmonies
made it impossible for the audi-
ence to stand still. Their show is
certainly one that needs to be
checked out the next time they
come to town.

Lords of Acid

Greenville may seem to be a
pretty hip town, but it is far be-
hind the times in many ways.
Where is the rave scene thai is
taking over most other towns
with a large youth culture? I sup-
pose it will come 10 yeais after
the fact.
There is plenty of music being
released these days that is a prod-
uct of this culture. The Lords of
Acid are one such band, and
0 m o
While listening to the new
Cranes album Loved, the one
thing that I had on my mind con-
stantly was clothespins. The mu-
sic on this album is pretty good,
but I wouldn't recommend it if
you don't like nasally vocals.
This band started back in the
VooDoo-U is their latest release.
The first thing you will notice
about their disc is the cover; it is
pornographic, I think. The cover
depicts a hell scene with several
red, naked demon women hav-
ing loads of fun with each other,
and I don't mean they are play-
ing tennis either. This may hinder
how the album is marketed be-
cause most chain stores don't
have enough spine to put any-
thing like this on the shelf where
it can be seen. But then again,
most of the stuff that is censored
these days sells like crazy.
From the cover you would ex-
pect some super-shocking lyrics
of an overt sexual nature, but that
is not the case. In fact there is
only one censurable word on the
whole album. They do sing about
sex, drugs and decadence, but in
an acceptable kind of way.
The opening song and title
track, "VooDoo-U is hard-core
techno: super fast beats with ee-
rie synthesizers, sound bites and
vocals. Most of the songs are of
this tempo or faster.
This is definitely a dance al-
early'80s with siblings James and
Alison Shaw. Their influences in-
clude Joy Division and various
projectsby NickCaveand Foetus,
though I really don't hear much
of these sounds on their album.
The sounds I hear make me think
of The Cure. However, that's not
surprising since they tour with
The Cure and are huge fans of
Robert Smith. In fact, Smith re-
mixed the single "Jewel" from
one of their previous albums
which gave them their first Top
30 hit in Britain and Norway.
With producers such as
Michael Brauer (who has many
artists under his belt such as
George Michael and Belly) and
flood (frequent producer for U2),
I expected a much different sound
from this band. I was thinking
that it would have a much more
pop-like edge, but what I found
was a deeply depressing album
of almost suicidal proportions.
I think my favorite song of the
bum from beginning to end. It is
a little different from most techno
in that they use a distorted guitar
from time to time (like The KLF
or KMFDM), and it takes the
whole group to create their sound
as opposed to one person on a
sampler, drum machine and com-
Many of the songs take on
risque subjects and flaunt them
in your face. The track "Do What
You Wanna Do" sums up their
main sentiment, guilt free living.
"Young Boys" takes on the idea
of deriving pleasure from cor-
rupting young virgin boys. "Out
Comes the Evil" is a strange twist
on the old nursery rhyme "Pop
Goes the Weasel
A few of the songs deal with
drug use. "Marijuana In Your
Brain" is a bouncy little dub
reggae tune about having fun
with cannabis. The slow dub
doesn't last long, however; the
tune soon breaks into the high
speed beats like the rest of the
CD. LSD is the subject of the last
song on the disc, "Blowing Up
Your Mind It addresses acid
album was " Lilies" because Shaw
spends a lot less time singing on
this track. The lyrics are also a
very intelligent touch for this de-
pressing song, and thankfully
Shaw speaks them instead of
singing them. "Warm days fill
my head like beautiful lilies
and the sun casts a shadow on
the clouds Those rainbows are
long gone and mud lies where
those days once shone she whis-
pers, making her way through
the ringing guitars and the
pounding bass to give the song
an interesting new twist. This
song is also remixed by flood,
and is not much different, but
there's a little more bass and her
vocals are a little more buried. It
provides a nice break from her
clothespin-on-the-nose vocals.
Another interesting aspect of
this band is the way they ap-
proach their music. I haven't
heard very many bands who have
such a Gothic influence make it

Ranked Tigers knock off Pirates 38-21
Aaron Wilson
Assistant Sports Editor
ECU turned in a extremely
strong showing on Saturday ver-
sus the third-ranked Auburn Ti-
gers before 84,738 fans at Jor-
dan-Hare Stadium. The final
score (38-21) is not indicative of
the effort put forth by ECU. The
Pirates had more yards (460-
407), first downs, and time of
Unfortunately, the turnover
bug that ECU had avoided all
year hit them hard on Saturday,
as the Pirates had four turnovers
to Auburn's one. Behind con-
verting these into two scores and
intercepting a ECU pass in the
end zone, the Tigers were able to
win the game despite being
outplayed by the Pirates.
Junior Smith outplayed Tiger
RB Steve Davis, rushing for 142
yards on 22 carries and a touch-
down. Smith added three catches
for 31 yards. Davis carried the
ball one more time than Smith,
but totaled just 89 yards rushing
as the Pirate defense rose to the
occasion and stopped him. Smith
went over 1,000 yards for the
third straight season, and has
1,012 yards rushing and 1,265
all-purpose yardage. He is rated
17th in the country in that cat-

Auburn struck first on a Matt

ECU's defense set the tone early,
tackling Davis twice for losses
on the drive. Pirate junior inside
linebacker Mark Libiano made
his 100th tackle of the season on
the first possession for Auburn.

for the season despite taking sev-
eral hard hits, including one
where ECU linebacker Marvin
Burke, ripped off his helmet and
threw it to the ground.
"Our intentions were to stop

"We put our name on the map,

Marcus Crandell (27-46, 270
yards, 2 TD's) led the offense
down the field on an 80-yard,
eight play drive that took 4:04 off
the clock. The Pirates capped the
drive with Larry Shannon's eight-
yard TD reception.
This new blitzing defensive
scheme broke when Frank Sand-
ers, who was isolated on one-on-
one coverage with Pirate DB
Emmanuel McDaniel, caught a
68-yard bomb to put the Tigers
up 17-7.

well, it is just that Sanders is an
excellent player, and we didn't
give him enough help
A major shift in momentum
for the Tigers was Brian
Robinson's INT that led to the
Sanders score.
"They capitalized on our mis-
takes Marcus Crandell said. "It
was just a bad decision on my
part. I overthrew a few passes
and that hurt us. I'll get my tim-

Crandell did overthrow a few
deep passes, including one to re-
ceiver Allan Williams.
"Marcus has been in the weight
room too much Williams joked.
"I have been telling him to leave
those weights alone. He has so
much natural talent. I know he

Junior proves legitimacy
Aaron Wilson
Assistant Sports Editor
On Saturday, ECU RB
Junior Smith proved once
again that he is a legitimate
NFL prospect whose relative
lack of size should not be the
determining factor in con-
sidering his ability to play at
a higher level.
Smith rushed for 142
yards on just 22 carries, out-
shining 6-foot-2, 220-pound
Auburn tailback Steve Davis,
who carried the ball one
more time than Smith but
gained just 89 yards on the
"Junior's the best running
back in the country Pirate
WR Larry Shannon said.
"This game showed his char-
acter. Week in and week out,
he gives 100 percent. The best
thing about Junior is he al-
ways gives credit to his of-
fensive line and blocking
backs. It is a pleasure for me
to block for him. If we can
get a good block downfield
for him he can take that
crease and turn it in to some-
thing big
Smith eclipsed the 1,000-
yard mark for the third
straight season. He needs
just 130 yards going into
the UCF game to go over
that mark. Smith has 1,012
yards rushing on the sea-
son, along with his 27
catches for 253 yards.
This added dimension of
catching the ball out of the
backfield is something
people have said is not one
of Smith's strong points.
"His catching the ball
out of the backfield is some-
thing that will get him in
the league ECU fullback
Damon Wilson said. "Jun-
ior gave 100 percent like he
is always going to do. With
both of us being seniors, I
hate to think that these will
be the last games we play
together. Each game means
more and more. I am very
proud of what he has done
so far
Wilson graded out (the
coaching staff's individual
"report card" of a player's
blocking performance) at
(SID) � James Madison junior Patrick
McSorley netted two goals, and Sipi
Savolainen dished out three assists to lead
the 13th-ranked Dukes over East Carolina
5-1 in men's soccer action in Harrisonburg
Sunday afternoon.
JMU, now 16-2-1 overall and 6-0-1 in
Colonial Athletic Association play, struck
early as Nathan Fairchild put a shot past
Pirate goalie Chris Libert to open the scor-
ing at the 20-second mark. The Dukes would
stretch their lead to 3-0 at the half on goals
by McScorley and Geoff Honeysett.
ECU got on the board at the 57:30 mark,
as junior Dan Sta ton scored his third goal of
the season on a pass from Marc Mullin.
East Carolina's John Swaggart netted
two goals to lead the Pirates to a 4-3 men's
soccer victory over American University.
American took an early lead when
Ignacio Tirado, assisted by teammate Scott
Pearson, recorded a goal at 00:33.
American's Todd Miller registered the sec-
ond goal for American at 7:18 with an assist
from Tirado. Tirado scored American's
third and last goal at 8:08.
Pirate Chris McCrea recorded East
Carolina's first goal at 31:00 with assists
from Marc Mullin and Kyle England. The
score at intermission was 3-1, American.
East Carolina's Sean Gray, assisted by
Kyle England, registered the Pirates' sec-
ond goal at 62:36. Gray marked his first
goal of the season.
Pirate John Swaggart, assisted by Jason
Kelly and Chris Padgett, scored two goals
in the last 10 minutes to defeat American
University, 4-3.
On Wednesday, the Wolfpack men's
soccer team outshot East Carolina 28-9
to roll past the Pirates 5-0 in Raleigh.
N.C State jumped outto an early lead
only three minutes into the match when
junior Mark Jonas drove in a direct kick
past Pirate goalie Jay Davis. The early
score seemed to wake up the Pirate de-
fense, which was able to hold off the
Wolfpack attack until the 31:28 mark
when Ian Hooper landed a header from
five yards out.
In the second half, N.C. State was able
to play their bench players and eventu-
ally wore down the EastCarolina squad.
Two Wolfpack reserves, Alberto
Montoya and Rudy Higa, scored goals
before freshman Brad Schmidt capped
the scoring with under nine minutes in
the match.
The Pirates, now 4-13-1 overall and 1-
5-1 in conference play, will travel to
Williamsburg, Va. to participate in the
CAA Tournament, which opens Thurs-
James Madison's Kristi Palmaccio,
Samantha Andersh, Tracey Harriot and
Katherine Carpenter recorded two goals
each to lead the Dukes to a 13-0 women's
soccer victory over East Carolina.
The Lady Pirates were outshot 32-1.
EastCarolina goalkeeper JaimesonPierce
registered 17 saves.
James Madison, third place in the
CAA, raised its overall record to 10-6-1,
and East Carolina finished the season at

season tournament.
ECU's Lady Pirate swim team re-
mained undefeated this season by de-
feating Old Etominion 129-93 on Satur-
day. The victory moved the Lady Pirates
to 2-0. The Lady Pirates were led by the
400 Medley Relay Team of Amanda

(Richmond, Va.), Sandra Ossman (Char-
lotte, N.C.) anu Samantha Edwards (Ra-
leigh,N.C.)witharimeof 4:09.11.Ossman
also claimed a victory in the 100 Freestyle
with a time of 55.27. In the 200 Freestyle,
junior Jackie Schmieder (Titusville, Fl.)
defeated teammate Rachel Atkinson
(Fredricksburg, Va.) to claim the victory
in a time of 1:57.69.
The men did not fare as well, falling to
the Monaxchs 126-111 to go 0-2 for the
season. For the Pirates, senior Scott Kupec
(Charlotte, N.C.) did claim victories in
the 1M and 3M diving events. Kupec's
score of 292 points in the 1M event is his
career best. Kupec outscored his team-
mate Stephen Barnes (Goldsboro, N.C.)
235.8 to 216.3 on the three-meter board
for his second victory of the day. Also for
the Pirates, freshman Patrick Kessler
(Charlotte, N.C.) claimed the victory in

blocks on ECU's isolation play, kicking out
Auburn's linebackers and ends to open big
holes for Fayetteville, NC's favorite son.
"We all have roles to play, and mine is to
make room for Junior to run Wilson said.
"When I see him gain six-seven yards a pop,
I know I'm doing a good job. Also, the offen-
sive line played the best they have played all
The offensive line rose to the occasion,
getting a good push up front, and contained
standout defensive linemen Mike Pelton and
companv, allowing just one sack and no tack-
les for losses.
"Junior's an outstanding back, and he al-
ways runs hard. If you get Junior past the D-
line, he will do the rest for you Pirate OL
Shane McPherson said. "I love blocking for
Junior because he makes us look good. You
only have to hold your blocks for a second or
two because he has the quickness and ability
to cut and make people miss. He runs north
and south, doesn't dance too much. He is a
tough guy who always makes positive things
"I think Junior proved to the whole coun-
try that he is a great player � not that he
really had anything left to prove how good he
is ECU FB John Peacock said. "He ran on
Auburn's defense at will. I don't think any-
one can stop him when he is on top of his
Smith scored another touchdown in the
second half of the game, giving running-
mate Jerris McPhail a rest after McPhail had
carried the ball down to the Auburn goal line.
The touchdown gave him a total of eight on
the year.
Rated among the top candidates for the
Doak Walker Award (the best running back
in the country), Smith is receiving several
accolades this year. He was named HM Ail-
American bv Football News and Street &
Smith's, 2nd among top fullbacks byTfce Sport-
ing Neios ("May be the toughest player in the
nation" TSN), and was named All-Indepen-

all of that during the season Smith
said. "My main focus right now is
on being a leader and getting this

None of this success should be a
surprise to anyone. Smith rushed
for 2,454 yards and 29 TD's as a
senior at Fayetteville's E.E. Smith

some doubt him, but he doesn't
listen to his detractors.

all-star games and will get to
show off his 4.4 speed and 370-
