Every good coach knows that sooner or later, the ol'
Gatorade is bound to hit. Pirate head coach Steve Logan
sloshed out of Memphis soaked, but quite happy.
Sports Editor
Pirate head coach Steve Logan
had reason to smile after
Saturday's football game.
"Coach Liberty Bowl chair-
man Bob Martin said. "We're im-
pressed with you and with your
fans. On behalf of the entire Lib-
erty Bowl Committee, I'd like to
invite you and your team back to
play here January sic 31 as our
host team in the Liberty Bowl
The Pirates manhandled the
Memphis Tigers 30-6 in front of
the 300-or-so Pirate faithful who
made the trip to Tennessee. The
win pushed ECU'S record to 7-4,
while earning the Pirates a berth
in the St. Jude s Liberty Bowl in
Memphis on Dec. 31 versus Illi-
The win and bowl invitation
soothed the wounds left after ECU
was again shunned from confer-
ence play this week.
"I want to take this opportu-
nity right now to say this Logan
said. "We've been told 'No' at
East Carolina over and over. Our
success this season puts a lot of
doubts behind us, people were
telling us that we can't do it, that
1991 was a fluke. All those things
I've heard too many times, and I
believe we can, and will, get it
done at East Carolina
Before taking the opening kick-
off, the Tigers came out of a
smoke-filled tunnel to the sights
and sounds of cannons and fire-
works, clearly trying to intimi-
date the opponent in front of their
home crowd of about 25,000 fans.
It didn't work.
After a quick three-and-out for
Memphis, Pirate sophomore QB
Marcus Crandell put the Pirates
on the board with a 14-yard TD
strike to wideout Larry Shannon.
On the drive, Crandell was a per-
fect 7-of-7 passing for 75 yards,
mostly on quickouts through a
blitzing Tiger defense.
On the successful extra-point
attempt, Pirate PKChadHolcomb
tore a groin muscle and was lost
for the game, so P Matt Levine
all kicking duties the rest of the
"Marc really throws the short
pass better than anyone I've ever
worked with, including 1992
Peach Bowl MVP Jeff Blake
Logan said. "It's almost impec-
cable. It's also a credit to ECU
wide receiver and special teams
Coach Doug Martin and our
wide receivers
The Pirates increased their lead
to 14-0 when, just before the end
of the first quarter, Crandell found
TE Sean Richardson on a 22-yard
touchdown pass over the middle
oi the end zone.
"I really pleased to see
Sean Richardson come back
Logan said. "He's been slowed
with a knee injury. Anytime you
see tight ends and running backs
catch a lot of balls out of this
offense, you are going to see a lot
of points on the scoreboard
Memphis got on the board early
in the second quarter, when PK
Luis Tejeda hit a 44-yard field
goal after Memphis CS Barry
Dillard picked off a errant
Crandell pass attempt at the ECU
18-yard line.
ECU. added another six points
when TB Junior Smith ran 30
yards off of a rather unusual run-
ning play that puts the Pirates up
by 17 at 20-3.
"It's really a misdirection
play Smith said. "Whenever I'm
ready to take off, I go. I just kind
of hide out behind the guard,
stay back and lean on him till its
time to go
Tejeda hit another 44-yard field
goal to shrink the Pirate lead to
two touchdowns with 5:00 re-
maining in the half. After a stalled
Pirate drive, Memphis would take
over after a Matt Levine 54-yard
punt. The Tigers drove to the ECU
39-yard line, where Lorenzo West
recovered a Joe Borich (15-35,173
yards, 2 INT) fumble after a crush-
ing Daren Hart sack.
"Thev were so predictable
ECU linebacker B.J. Crane said.
"They hadn't played big-time
competition like we had, so we
were really excited about coming
out and stopping them. ECU'S
got the type of "mad-dog" de-
fense, and we're gonna come out
foaming out of the mouth, time
and time again. Just watch
Dec. 31 andyou'll see
Levine capped off a 7 play,
0:57 second drive with a 27-
yard field goal to put the Pi-
rates up 23-6 going into the
locker room at halftime.
"The fumble recovery
stopped anything they may
hove had gotten going
Logan said. "Maic orches-
trated the two minute drill
beautifully, and Matt hit the
field goal
In the first half, Crandell
completed 22 of 29 passes for
223 yards and 2 TDs.
"We looked forward to this
all season Crandell said. "We
exposed them to a lot of things
they weren't used to. It was
easy pickings
Both Levine (45.8 average)
and UM's Drew Paraimore
(37.3) traded punts for most
of the third quarter, until
Crandell found Shannon on a
5-yard fade route with 1:34
remaining, finishing all game
scoring at 30-6 ECU.
"It was really a nice throw
Logan said. "It was a stretch
throw rather than a jump ball
that we usually throw, and it
was very well-timed by Marc
and Larry"
The drive was set up by
Pirate SS Daren Hart's second
interception of the game, giv-

Abundance of tickets, but nowhere to sleep
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
The following information ivas
available at press time.
It has been only three days
since the Liberty Bowl teams
were announced and already the
hotel accommodations in Mem-
phis are limited.
As the clock wound down Sat-
urday, Pirate fans flocked to the
phones to make reservations for
New Year's in Memphis. Callers
to the Steve Logan radio talk
show on Sunday night said ho-
tels were booked solid due to an
AmWay convention that coin-
cides with the St. Jude Liberty
As the Pirates prepare to take
on the Fighting Illini of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, fans are stress-
ing over where they will stay,
how they will get to Memphis
and if there will be enough tick-
cLa available for fans and stu-
A spokesperson at the Mem-
phis Visitors Information Cen-
ter said the hotel room availabil-
ity is looking dismal, but Associ-
ate Athletic Director Charlie Carr
said that tickets will be available
in plenitude.
"We do get first choice of the
tickets Carr said. "I think we got
the best choice of tickets. I think
we'll have all the tickets we need
Yesterday morning, the ticket
office began mailing ticket order
forms to season ticket holders, se-
lected alumni and Pirate Club
members. After these people have
ordered tickets through Nov. 30,
the tickets will be open for general
sales. Student tickets will go on
sale Dec. 5. Carr said student tick-
ets will not be limited and there
will be enough tickets for every-
one. Tickets are $30 each.
According to a press release
prepared by the Athletic depart-
ment, students will be able to pur-
chase tickets on a first-come, first-
serve basis. Students must show
their valid identification cards to
purchase the tickets allotted for
students. All other tickets will be
available through mail only. Anv
tickets remaining after Dec. 5, will
be made available within bowl
ticket policies to anyone.
Student tickets are being dis-
tributed in this manner for two
reasons, the press release said.
First, students will be guaranteed
the opportunity to purchase tick-
ets and will not get shut out by
boosters, alumni or general public
orders and second, this will en-
sure that students purchase stu-
dent allotted tickets.
"We have set aside tickets for
the students Carr said. "We'll
have as many as we can sell to the
students. We are committed to
getting as many tickets as we need
for students
Carr said the need for tickets
will not be as demanding as it was
for the Peach Bowl since our com-
petitor is not a state rival.
ECU brought 8,000 tickets back
from Memphis, but more tickets
will be available as needed. The
Libert Howl seats slightly over
63,000 fans.
While there does not seem to be
a problem with ticket availability,
obtaining hotel accommodations
has become the obstacle.
Greenville travel agents are busy
arranging travel packages for fans.
A spokesperson from ITG
Travel in Greenville said they are
offering three packages to the Lib-
erty Bowl. The Air Package starts
at $497 per person for air fare from
Raleigh and two nights quad-oc-
cupancv at the Embassy Suites in
Memphis. ITG's Charter Bus Pack-
age starts at S268 per person, with
a bus leaving Greenville and two
nights quad-occupancy at the
Hampton Inn. Their least expen-
sive package, the Welcome Bash,

'Dead week' gives students a break
A new policy at Indiana State University states that no examina-
tions or quizzes are allowed during the week before exams. The vote
passed 20-0-0 in favor of giving students a week of preparation and
studying for finals. Professors have the option of omitting final
exams, but students still have to show up to their finals whether they
have tests or not.
Insect problem begins to bug students
Lady bugs have crept into several residence halls at Hofstra
University in New York, and students do not like it one bit. Up to 50
bugs have been found in one room. Residence Life at the university
says the problem is caused by students opening windows to cool off
the overactive heating systems and will be corrected as soon as
Students protest tuition increase
More than 500 University of Kentucky students took to the streets
this month in one of the largest student rallies in years. The march was
sponsored by the school's student government association to protest
a proposed tuition increase.
When parents pay, students spend more
Independent students are spending less than half the money
mom and dads do for dependent college kids. A new survey
found that independent students also work more and go to better
universities. The U.S. Census Bureau reported that students who
receive loans often have to find part-time jobs on the side to aid
What did you learn at the library?
A University of North Carolina student received quite a surprise
while studying on the third floor of UNC's Davis Library. A man
indecently exposed himself to her when she stood up to stretch.
Reports state she told the man to stop and he complied.
Missouri students send books overseas
A new project at Missouri University, called Partners in Knowl-
edge, allows students to donate books to be sent overseas. Twenty
countries in Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa will receive the much
needed books. Reports state that newly established foreign universi-
ties often have problems raising funds for books.

As the Christmas holiday sea-
son rapidly approaches, the com-

from every corner with red and
green lights. The streets will be
filled with the hustle and bustle of
holiday shoppers and the city will
reach a state of near-panic as the

With such chaos in the air, it
would be very easy for the true
spirit of Christmas to be lost in the
rush of commercialism and trivi-
ality. It would be simple for any-
one to lose focus on the reality that
the holiday is intended as a time of
Fortunately, for the homeless
citizens of the Emerald City and
Pitt County, Harold Curtis and his
family have not forgotten that.
The Curtis family, who live on
1108 Channel Drive just outside
Greenville's city limits, will once
again adorn their home with thou-
sands of lights and holiday deco-
rations Their residence has be-
come a tourist attraction for the
Greenville community, as hun-
dreds drive by the hon le to look at
the holiday spectacle. This would
seem, on the surface, to be just
another over-exuberant family
decorating their home on just an-
other Christmas, but Curtis has a
deeper purpose in mind.
Each night, from dusk to 10pi.v,
the family will be taking dona-
tions to aid the homeless in
Greenville and PittCounry. In a
coordinated effort with the
Greenville Community Shelter,
Curtis has volunteered his time
and energy in such an attempt
for the past three years, raising
nearly $7,500 last year. Curtis
said that the annual "light
show" was simply a way for
him and his iamily to do their
part for their community.

Native Americans inform, motivate students
Tambra Zion
Assistant News Editor
Two down-to-earth Native
American television and movie
stars spoke in Mendenhall last
Wednesday night.
Kimberly Norris and Brian
Frejo spoke about Hollywood life,
Native American stereotypes and
how students should be motivated
in reaching for goals to a crowd of
40 who came out despite the rain.
Originally from Oklahoma, Norris
and Frejo have traveled across
America acting and speaking,
rejo worked in western North
Carolina while working on Last of
the Mohicans, and Norris has ap-
peared in soap operasand aSeinfeld
episode dealing with political cor-
rectness concerning Native Ameri-
The presentation began with
television and movie clips show-
ing the Frejo and Norris at work.
The Seinfeld clips had the audience
giggling at Seinfeld's common slips
of the tongue concerning Native
American slang.
"We're making tremendous in-
roads in purveying a more truth-
ful representation of our people
Norris said during an interview
with The East Carolinian.
During his speech, Frejo said he
has noticed a positive change in
the way Native Americans are be-
ing portrayed. He said some ste-
reotypes are not the way Native
Americans speak or live at all and
he makes efforts to point that out
when reading scripts or when
asked to wear or do something he
disagrees with.
"this is a way for us to give a
little bit of ourselves and show the
experiences we've had, the
struggles and successes we've
had Frejo said in an interview.
'Especially for young people to
know, to go out and achieve the
goals or the dreams they have so
they believe in themselves and
learn about their culture and who
they are
Norris said it is important for
cultural and racial barriers to be
broken through. East Carolina
Native American Organization
(ECNAO) President Kimberly
Sampson agreed.
"People don't recognize you as
Native American. They usually
think you're Mexican or Spanish
Sampson said.
She said ECNAO offers support
to its 10-15 members because col-
lege can be a difficult transition for
many to face. College can be frus-
trating and confusing, especially
in today's high-paced society.
"I think its important to make
changes instead of standing
around waiting for it and talking
about it society's negative influ-
ence on younger Americans.
When everyone starts to believe
that they can be a part of that, then
thev can help make a change Frejo
Frejo and Norris spoke for al-
most two hours, urging the audi-
ence to make goals and dreams a
reality. Thev also shared their
screen successes and setbacks
as well as some ethnic music.
ECNAO sponsored the
event along with Minority Af-
fairs and the Student Govern-
ment Association. Sampson
met Norris and Frejo while at a
United National Indian Tribal
Youth (UNITY) conference
over the summer. ECNAO is
planning to adopt a family for
Thanksgiving and to hold a
craft show in front of The Stu-
dent Stores. The group's an-
nual Pow-Wow is their next
big event expected to be held
next April.

ECU student workers have
more than a bright smile in com-
mon with Calvin, McDonald
restaurant's celebrated fry cook,
turned cashier, turned location
Of course "little Calvin from
around the corner" is just a col-
lective character created for use
in commercials, but the career
opportunities that can be found
in food services are quite real.
Scott Harrold has been man-
ager of the Galley, located at
the back of Jones Residence
Hall, since Fall of 1992. Prior to
coming to ECU, Harrold began
his work experience in retail
sales and hotelrestaurant man-
agement. He is now employed
through Aramark, one of the
largest contracting catering
companies in the world.
"Up until a few years ago,
our company was simply known
as ARA� Automatic Retailers
of America he said. "Back
then we were just a vending
machine company
The name of the company has
recently been changed to
Ara' is a symbol of our work
in the past, 'mark' represents our
signature on the future he said.
"We're trying to make an im-
pression on the whole food ser-
vice community. We still do
vending machines, but now we
have expanded to campus din-
ing, business catering, and hos-
pital and recreational dining
According to Harrold,
Aramark takes special interest
in student workers involved
with food services on campus.
He feels that student manage-
ment positions often do lead to
bigger things.
"Three years ago I began
working with Chris Warren, who
is a senior here at ECU Harrold
said. "He has done everything
we asked him to do everywhere
we asked him to do it. From a
grill cook, he has now been pro-
moted to part-time manager at
the Galley. Also James Godwin,
who is now employed by
Aramark as a manager trainee,
got his start as a student worker
Harrold said he believes tak-
ing a job at the Galley or some
campus dining facility can be a
great step in the direction of
building a career.
Chris Warren, a senior mar-
keting major, is one of a number
of student managers who had to
start at the bottom.
Warren joked that he was pro-
moted partly because of his vast
abundance of people skills. He
went on to compare his job to
that of any fast food restaurant
"My hours are pretty regu-

Brown said. The CIS portion of
the cost will be paid out of busi-
ness affairs' funds.
The supplements will be de-
livered to the dorms and to the
faculty first. Then the left-overs
are sent to Mendenhall, where
the remaining directories will be
sent as well. Off-campus students
can pick up their books there.
If you weren't able to get a
directory during its first distribu-
tion, the ECU Student Locator is
available with both on and off-
campus numbers. Hoursof opera-
tion are Monday through Thurs-
day from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m Friday
from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m Saturday
from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. and Sun-
day from 1 p.m. until 11 p.m. Each
day, the Student Locator handles
about 400 calls for information.
"Usually after the directories
come out though, the amount of
calls that come in is cut in half
said Michelle Harrell, who works
at the information desk in
Now with the directory prob-
lem behind, CIS is looking for-
ward to taking ECU to higher
grounds in the computer age.
While ECU is in the process of
changing computer systems, one
thing to look forward to is tele-
phone registration. That along
with the new supplements, are on
the way.
ends, I open in the mornings,
stay a while during the day to
monitor the other workers, and
then I close at night
Warren said since he is just a
part-time manager, the job's only
benefits are dollars by the hour.
For most students, those ben-
efits are the only ones that mat-
Harrold gives Warren a lot of
credit for doing such a good job
while juggling so many other re-
sponsibilities. In addition to
managing at the Galley, Warren
currently works for The East
Carolinian and and is president
of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity.
"In the food service busi-
ness it takes someone like War-

consciencious, personable and
dependable I think when he
graduates he wants to get as far
away from food services as pos-
sible, but we would love to make
him a permanent part of the
Aramark team
Although most student work-
ers, like Warren, are only inter-
ested in part-time employment,
some go on to acquire more per-
manent job positions.
James Godwin, a 27-year-old
ECU graduate holding a BSBA
degree in finance, was promoted
as a student vorker from grill

Even though he occasionally

Pirates going to Liberty Bowl
Congratulations are due to the Pi-
rates on their stellar performance in Mem-
phis this past weekend. The Pirates
soundly defeated the Memphis Tigers by
a score of 30-6. This victory of course will
send our Pirates to the Liberty Bowl in
Memphis this December 31st.
The New Year's Eve Liberty Bowl
will haveour Pirate's pitted againstCoach
Lou Tepper's Fighting Mini. While their
record is 6-5, the fighting Mini are a
highly regarded team. They are sure to
make the Pirates earn every point scored
and every yard gained. It promises to be
an excellent contest that hopefully will
end with the Pirates being the victors,
thus proving, once again, that we are
a force to be reckoned with on the
The Pirate victory last weekend
has done more than given the Pirates
the opportunity to test our mettle
again, however. It has dispelled
doubts anyone may have had concern-
ing the quality of the Pirates. Many
discounted the 1992 Peach Bowl as a
freak occurrence for the Pirates. This
opinion is apparently so widespread
that our football team was rejected
again for conference play.
Ostensibly the logic of the confer-
ence committee must be that the Pi-
rates are not good enough, that they
are just not up to the challenge. It
makes one wonder how those in charge
of the conference are explaining their
decision now that we are beating the
odds and attending the Liberty Bowl.
It would be grand if we could pack
the stands with Pirate fans. TEC im-
plores everyone to make their best ef-
fort to make the trip to the game in
Memphis; Be sure to watch TEC for
updated information on hotel avail-
ability and tickets. Remember what

Thanksgiving: A time to be grateful
From what we see and hear
on the news each night, the
world might not seem a very
nice place to live anymore.
We've got people fighting
continuously, always upset and
angry about one thing or
another, never finding it in their
hearts to agree or forgive. At
times, no one seems to be happy.
There's always someone
furious about something or
someone else, always going to
terrible lengths to vent that
anger. Well, the world is an
angry place, but let's not jump
in. Let's rise above it. That's
right, its time for the annual
Thanksgiving article.
Compared to most other
people on the globe, as usual, I
think we have a lot more to be
thankful for. I mean, look at us,
despite all the differences of
opinion and everything else that
makes us such a diverse group
of people sharing one nation,
we're still keeping it all
relatively together, and still,
over 200 later, more or less
defying the predictions of those
who would like to see us fall
apart. We've got each other.
We've got friends. We've got
the opportunity to not only
become whatever we wish to
become in this life but to make the
world around us a better place if
we so choose.
We've got family, even though
they may be imperfect. They're
still all we have, and we're not
always going to have them. Learn
to accept, forgive. Get over
whatever it is that's getting in
the way of our relationships and
learn to be happy. Downtown
Saturday night is not happy,
people. That's drunk. That is,
all too often, an illusion that we
create to help us ease our way
through the pain and insecurity
that we are feeling in our
conscious lives.
It al! washes off on Sunday
morning, and all we're left with
is the hangover and the guilt.
Get past that. None of our
problems are so big that we
can't eventually handle them,
even if we do need a little help
at times. The help is there, and
that is something we can really
feel thankful for, because for so
many people in this world there
must not seem to be any help

The scourge of democracy: talk radio
The recent Republican romp
at the polls left me with an
unshakable smile that lasted at
least 48 hours. Now that things
have settled down a bit, I am
amused to hear what Democrats
are telling themselves, and others,
in order to assuage their bruised
egos in lieu of their humiliating
One excuse is that the people
were still voting in the spirit of
1992 � for change � not
necessarily for Republicans. While
there is perhaps some truth to that
statement, the change that the
people called for did not include
President Clinton's proposals for
running our nation.
The president is clearly
unpopular these days, even within
his own party. No wonder
Democratic candidates did not
want the President to visit them
before the elections. A good
portion of the President's
unpopularity can be attributed to
the multitude of informational
sources available to Americans
that was not around in the past:
Internet, cable TV, new
publications and of course, the
scourge of democracy, talk radio.
This was confirmed the other
day in a conversation I had with a
college Democrat who blamed the
fountain of iniquity for the
stunning Republican victory.

can come up with at least a
few people or things that

weren't in your life.

If Democrats, especially those
of the left-wing variety, have
nothing to hide, what is to fear?
Martin Lancaster spoke
disdainfully of talk radio during a
debate with Walter Jones.
Apparently former-
Representative Lancaster did have
something to hide.
One must understand that talk
radio informs the people of what
Lancaster and his ilk were up to in
D.C. We must keep in mind that
we are speaking of the same Martin
Lancaster who was highly rated
in a Hypocrisy Index recently
printed in the Wall Street Journal. I
suppose I would be against talk
radio too if I were a politician with
skeletons in my closet.
Information continues to be
the currency of democracy now as
it has been since the inception of
our country. Talk radio programs,
such as G. Gordon Liddy's, serve
that vital function for democracy
because they educate the common
man who has an interest in politics
and government. And that scares
the hell out of some politicians.
It was Thomas Jerferson's
assertion that the common man
was more important than the
government, and that the average
American could get by wfth a
minimum of government only if
they were enlightened and
informed. Not having government
as our keeper runs contrary to
By Steven A. Hill
modern liberal thought.
Hence, whenever a
Democrat is questioned about
talk radio, the reaction is similar
to a vampire washing down a
clove of garlic with a pint of holy
water. As another means of
relaying information to
Americans, talk radio bears the
enlightenment that Jefferson
spoke of.
By forming an essential piece
to the American political
landscape, talk radio
concurrently buttresses that
special check against tyrannical
government � the first
Because we have
experienced a boom in the
number of methods with which
Americans can access what used
to be hard-to-get information, it
is becoming more difficult for
politicians to deceive the
American people with mere
rhetoric. And what is good for
the goose is good for the gander.
If the Republicans fail to act and
vote according to their discourse,
they too will get the ax.
The pendulum of the
people's will is swinging at a
much faster rhythm
nowadays. The last election
period should serve as a
warning to all public officials

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
On Friday, November 18, at 12:05 p.m I was
leaving the library computer lab and politely told
the lab assistant my last name and initial so that he
could retrieve my student ID from the filing box.
Instead of doing his job and politely retrieving it for
me (he is supposed to assist students, correct?), he
gave me a strange look, pushed the filing box toward
me, and continued his conversation with his fellow
lab assistant. If it is a part of an unspoken protocol to
help yourself to your own ID (which has not been
my experience at other computer labs), what is the
purpose of putting your ID into a filing box in the
first place? Couldn't someone just steal anyone else's
ID if an assistant does not monitor this process? And
what is with the attitude problem?
It wasn't only the fact that this assistant was
rude to me, but he gave his friend a look that, at least
how I interpreted it, meant, "what does this guy
think I am, an errand boy or something?" I'm sorry,
but I don't feel anyone who displays this kind of
attitude should be allowed to assist library patrons.
Working at a public library, or anywhere for that
matter, is a privilege, not a right. No one owes you
a job or respect in this world, but they are things
that must be earned. If this guy wants my respect,
he should do his job, or he should get out of the
public service business.
As a student who rarely uses computers on
campus but pays a $60 computer fee every year, I
would like, at least, courteous assistance while
using the labs. This is not a political, social, or racial
issue, but it is a matter of common decency. If being
polite to patrons is not in the computer lab
assistant's job description, it sure ought to be. I
think that in the future, I will no longer surrender
my student ID to assistants, but simply show it
to them if they ask about it. Maybe then, they
would have to work for their paychecks, and I
wouldn't have to endure the hassle. Why can't
computer lab assistants simply check IDs at
the door, or is even that too difficult?
Thomas Brobst
To the Editor:
I feei compelled to comment on two different
articles printed in The East Carolinian this semester.
Both articles herald the joys of drinking. In the more
recent article (Nov. 10,1994, "Brewery Offers Beer
Club"), Mr. Willis educates readers in the fineries of
having microbrewed beer delivered to your home.
Unfortunately, information for ordering didn't
include how thebrewery checks age over the phone.
The first article to catch my attention was a book
review, " Beer Games Create Intoxicating Fun" (
Sept. 27,1994). Mr. Griffin was given "Lifestyle" top
headline to thoroughly explain the procession
through the author's "Boot Factor" which one must
drink 100 beers in a weekend. This one comes with
a warning and recommends having discipline,
a steady pace and a physician's phone number
With these two lush-ions articles in mind, I
have two questions: First, isn't a college paper
meant to speak to its college-age audience, a
majority who are under 21? Secondly, isn't ECU
the school recently so concerned about its parry
If I were an ECU parent, I'd be shaking a finger
at this publication's lack of responsibility. But as a
graduate student, I am most'y concerned.

screaming in agony.
Two scenes of movie violence.
Which is more dangerous to the
American psyche? The former,
which is almost sexual (and
would beif it weren'tsoclinical)?
Or the latter, which depicts vio-
lence in a brutal and distasteful
Some would say the latter,
simply because it is brutal and
distasteful. An offense to their
sensibilities, they might even go
so far as to call it pornographic
(metaphorically speaking, of
course). The first scene, being less
graphic and easier to take, would
be more acceptable. These people
are called censors.
Others would say that both
scenes are damaging, that we
shouldn't watch violence at all,
and that anyone who thinks dif-
ferently is just sick. These people
are called Janet Reno.
I, as you may have already
guessed, disagree with both.
Violence is a problem in our
society. I don't think we'll find
too many people who wouldn't
agree with that. At the relatively
high level of civilization human
beings have attained, we should
be learning to control our violent
instincts a little better.
And speaking of instincts,
that's the central problem with
Janet Reno's philosophy on vio-
lence. Human beings are, if we
can embrace Darwinism for a
minute, descended from apes.
And apes, like all animals, have
inclinations to violence. So I think
it's safe to assume that human
beings carry certain violent in-
stincts bu ried somewhere in their
gene pool.
Since we're not living with the
constant threat of death in the
wild anymore, those instincts
aren't given much chance to flex
their muscles. Civilization is by
defini tion civil, and we must learn
to control our violent instincts.
But repressing them completely
isn't healthy. If we keep all our
violence bottled up, it will ex-
plode and do a lot more damage
than if we accepted it and gave it
an outlet.
That outlet can be, and is for
many, movie violence. We can
give vent to our violent instincts
vicariously, watching actions we
can't or won't take in our every-
day lives. Rather than being a
cause, movie violence can be a
preventative to real-world vio-
But the sterile-sexiness of most
movie violence can cause prob-
lems of its own. When people get
shot, it hurts. Bullets tear through
muscle, shatter bone, and can eas-
Hy make an extremity useless.
It's scary, painful and messy; not
exactly the nicest thing you could
do to your fellow man.
But when that's depicted in a

Technically, this is Star Trek VII.
And you know what that means.
The odd-numbered installments
in the Star Trek film series are dread-
ful. The first movie doesn't look
like Trek at all, the third was made
in response to the death of Spock in
number two, and the fifth film, di-
rected by Captain Kirk himself, is
flaccid at best. In contrast, the even-
numbered Trttearegreatentertain-
ment. Trek II: The Wrath of Khan has
a madman villain hell-bent on get-
ting revenge and exploiting science.
The Oscar-nominated Trek IV: The
Voyage Home is at times hilarious
because it plays up the character
and dramatic constructs, and Trek
VI: The Undiscovered Country was a
fitting send-off for the entire crew
of the original television series be-
cause it establishes good relations
between Klingons and humansand
offers hope for the future � which
is what makes Trek so popular. It
also sets Trek VII to be comman-
deered by the cast of "Star Trek:
The Next Generation
Generations breaks the hex of the
odd-number by ditching the Ro-
man numerals, but it needn't have
worried. This is the best Trek of all.
What could have been a Fran-
kenstein built just to get Captains
Kirk and Picard in the same room is
a humdinger of a film, Trek or not.

It's up to Picard and crew to stop

science fiction's greatest tag team
goes up against Soran.
It's pretty simple, but as with
the "Next Generation" television
series, the subplots and details
make the movie. In what sets up
Generations'best moments, Data
(Brent Spiner) decides to try out
the emotion chip taken from his
brother Lore. He runs the whole
gamut (261 emotional episodes,
as he counts), providing both
fine subtle dramatic effects and
fall-down funny scenes.
Granted, it's similar to Voyage
Home's scenes with the ever- logi-
cal Spock trying to pick up pro-
fanity, but it goes further and
works for guffaws, not giggles.
Picard (Patrick Stewart) suffers

Spanish dancers delight

The ECU Performing Arts Series
has brought home a winner again.
This time, the winner is El Teatro
De Danza Espanola, The Dance
Theater of Spain.
Playing to a full house for one
night only, the company's two-hour
performance, consisting of "Luna
De Sangre" ("Blood Moon") and
"Cafe Del Puerto" ("Cafe at the
Port") kept theaudience enthralled.
The combination of lights, sound,
costumes and the absolute beauty
of the flamenco dances made for a
delightful show.
The first half of the performance
was "Luna De Sangre The plot is
very similar to Shakespeare's
"Romeo and Juliet but with a de-
cidedly Spanish twist. I had wor-
ried that my limited knowledge of
the Spanish language would hinder
my ability to understand the per-
formance, but this was not so.
Dance, as it is said, is the universal
language. The characters in the play
had no lines, but expressed emo-
tions and desires through move-
ment. I was particularly impressed
by the dancing of Emilio
Hernandez. Flamenco-style danc-
ing consists of more legwork than
anything. Hernandez moved so fast
and so perfectly that he seemed not
to move at all. At one point, he
dan ed backwards across the stage
on his heels and moved so fast he
seemed to slide over the stage. I
was also impressed by Maria Vivo,
the company's featured female
dancer. She moved with such grace.

she wassimply walking to her place

Three of alternative music's
most interesting bands played at
the Ritz in Raleigh last Saturday
night Nov. 12. The Fatima Man-
sions, Weezer and Live played
to a packed house, and the show
was nothing short of amazing.
The Fatima Mansions began
the festivities with music that
can best be described as bizarre.
The band is from Ireland (al-
though you might ask Ireland on
what planet), but don't equate
them with U2 or Sinead. Their
music and their lyrics clashed �
in a good w?y. Several songs
were about Jesus, but they're not
a Christian band. Musically, they
were ear-catching, and really
quite good. The singer was lively
and gave a brief summary about
each song before he began to
sing. This was a good idea be-
cause it was easy to get lost in
what was really going on. The
Fatima Mansions were interest-
ing and definitely a band to pur-
sue for those who are into far out
Weezer, like Jan Brady, got
the middle slot for the evening.
They went on a few minutes af-
ter 10 p.m. and opened with
"My Name is Jonas from their
self-titled debut album Weezer.
Their set list was almost an
exact rundown from their al-
bum and for a while, they were
playing in Weezer chronologi-
cal order. They were perfect,
everything sounded just like
the album.
The crowd near the stage
erupted when they began the
song "The World Has Turned
and Left Me Here It was a
sight to see: crowd surfing,
crashing bodies and even a few
small unorganized mosh pits.
The energy in the Ritz could
have-jump started a car. Dur-
ing "In the Garage Live's lead
singer ran on stage and sang
along with the chorus, only to
end his antics with a stage dive.
Naturally, they played their
singles "Buddy Holly" and
"Come Undone-The Sweater
Song Sadly, "The Sweater
Song" was the only ditty some
people knew. There's no doubt
that if Weezer continues to tour
with Live and play shows as
great as Saturday night, they'll
become a big name.
The crowd grew anxious
around 11:15 p.m. They were
ready for Live. Live hit the stage
soon after and opened with
"Selling the Drama" off their
magnum opus Throwing Cop-

"Blood Wedding the second
play of the ECU Playhouse 1994-95
season, is a far cry from the light-
hearted musical comedy "Li'l
Abner which opened their season.
Even so, both plays have one thing
in common: success.
Written bySpanish poet and play-
wright Federico Garcia Lorca,
"Blood Wedding" is a tragic tale of
forbidden love. The Bridegroom, an
extremely wealthy young man, pro-
poses to the Bride, a girl of equally
high station. She agrees because her
beloved, Leonardo, is already mar-
ried to another. The Bride cannot
livew ith her decision, however, and
runs away with Leonardo immedi-
ately after her wedding.
The play itself is pure poetry,
considered a classic by most schol-
ars. However, much of the poetry in
the words was lost in translation,
giving the actors much less to work
with. This didn't seem to be a prob-
lem for the cast, as the actors seemed
to overcome the difficulties pre-
sented by working in a translated
play with little trouble.
Four stars go to the performance
of Janice V. Schreiber, who played
the Mother. Her character was, in
my opinion, practically flawless. In
Schreiber's Mother I saw a woman
hardened by years of hardship and
death and yet still fearful for the life
of her last son, much as I believe
Garcia Lorca meant her to be. Only
slightly less praise goes to Alecia
Hillis and Tre'Perry, who portrayed
Death and the Moon respectively.
Their performances were unforget-
Several scenes in the play stick
out vividly in my mind. The most
memorable scene for me was the
forest scene. The lights that made
the background of trees were very
impressive. The most notable part
of the scene, however, was the "ris-
ing" of the Moon from center stage
and the high-pitched whineemitted
during Death's intervention in the
forest. I loved (hoseeffects. Another
scene I particular!) enjoyed was the
lullaby sung by Leonardo's Wife
and Mother-in-law. The combina-
tion of song and speech absolutely
gavemechills. Heather Melton, who
played Leonardo's Wife, and Tracy
Donohue, who played her mother,
deserve special recognition fortheir
rendition of such an emotional and
symbolic scene.
However, I had one problem
with Melton's character. Although
she was obviously six or seven
months pregnant, she seemed to
have no difficulty moving. I would
have liked to see her use her arms to
support her as she sat down and
stood up, or at the very least to
support her back while walking.
Despite that, both Melton and
Donohue gave admirable perfor-
mances. Michelle Miller, as the
Bride, and Ryan Christopher Cox,
as Leonardo, also gave excellent
performances. The chemistry be-
tween the two characters was espe-
cial Iv evident in the forest scene
after their disappearance from the
Nelson Fields' costume designs
were beautiful. The Bride s wed-
ding dress, in my opinion, was ab-
solutely stunning. The set design,
strongly influenced by the works of
Salvador Dali, was also very im-
pressive. John Shearin, the director
of the play, commented upon the
surrealism of both Garcia Lorca's
writings and Dali's paintings. From
that, Robert C. Alpers took most of
his ideas for the set. These influ-
ences were most notable in the
flower which got steadily larger in
each scene. Shearin pointed out that
flowers are extremely important
symbols in Spanish society�hence
the many references in the script to
dahlias, orange blossoms and the
I think the most interesting part
of the set design was the use of a
large mirror in the Bride's dressing
scene. I found it fascinating to see
the actors reflected in the mirror.
This was a risky venture since the
audience could be blinded by the
glare of the lights, but 1 think it was
worth it, because it worked incred-
ibly well. The music, originally com-
posed bv Mort Stine, is haunt-
ingl v bea u tif ul. The combination
of costumes, set design and mu-
sic helped to make "Blood Wed-
ding" an extremely enjoyable
play to watch.
I shouldn't forget to mention
the performance of the en-
semble, as well as the hard work
of the technical crew. The wed-
ding scene was a lot of fun to
watch. The dances were full of
life and excitement. Also, the
lighting and set changes seemed
to go as smoothly as possible. I
was very impressed with the
professionalism of the show.
1 found "Blood Wedding"
very moving. The difficulty of
the rolesand theease with which
the actors portrayed them was
not lost on me. All in all, it was
an excellent performance.
The final performance is to-
night at 8 p.m. and 1 urge any-
one who can to go see it. It will
not be a disappointment. Out of
10 stars, I'd give this perfor-
mance a nine.

Movie soundtrack albums fol-
low a simple rule they usually stink.
The soundtrack to Jason 's Lyric is no
exception. Over 35 acclaimed art-
ists, collectively going by the name
of Black Men United, are respon-
sible for this album. The list of tal-
ented artists who contributed over-
flows the credits, but it seems they
never really get it together. Talents
such as LL Cool J, Tony Toni Tone
and Warren G's new creation, The
Twinz, all misfire with repetitive,
monotonous and simplistic songs.
Jason's Lurk does contain a few
cover tunes. "Crazy Love written
and originally recorded by Van
Morrison, is redone by Brian
McKnight. As far as covers go, this
is a fairlv good one, but it won't be
remembered in a few months.
Oleta Adamscovers Jimmy Cliff
on "Manv Rivers toCross and this
is a strong track. The depth in the
background vocals and strong
instrumentals make this one of the
best songs on the album.
But the strongest song by far on
Jason's Lyric is "U Will Know This
song has such talents as Tevin
Campbell, R. Kelly and Brian
McKnight all lending their vocal
skills. Other highlights include Lenny
Kravitz on acoustic guitar and
Raphael Wiggins on bass.
Many of the songs appearing here
are written bv wonderful musicians.
Warren G wrote two songs, but both
of these (performed by the Five Footer
Crew and The Twinz) surprisingly
lack something in many areas.
Hopefully, Jason's Lyric will be a
better movie than it is a soundtrack
album. After much anticipation in
the R&B community, this album has
come up far short. There are neces-
sary ingredients to everything, and
Jason's Lyric had a good soundtrack
recipe going in. There was an abun-
dance of talent mixed into a flavorful
blend, and a theme to spice things up
a little. But ultimately there's nothing
here tocatch theear of the audience,
and that's the most crucial ingredient
of all.
per. The crowd swayed to the tune
and sang along. Live sounded ter-
rific; they played a good mix be-
tween Throwing Copper and their
first album, Mental Jewelry. Live
was impressive and played well.
Thev drew most of their crowd
reaction when they played the
song "Pain Lies on the Riverside
from Jewelry. This had to be the
song the crowd wanted to hear;
evervone sang and danced. Dur-
ing the song "I Alone their latest
single off Copper, a touching mo-
ment occurred when everyone
appeared to grab onto the person
they were with and sang along.
Live couldn't have been better.
They put on a great show. The
Fatima Mansions, Weezer and Live
are among the most interesting
bands around. The show last Sat-
urday was a prime example of that.
What makes Generations work is
the improvement on elements taken
from both series, a step made easy
with a budget of $30 million versus
the $1 million for each episode of
Next Generation. The television ex-
ploits boast great drama, rich char-
acters with as much variety as
imagination will allow, action for
the kiddies and considerable philo-
sophical debates and lessons. But
look to the cast of the second series
for Trek's all-time high popularity.
Working together for seven sea-
sons on television virtually days
before filming their first film scenes,
the crew of Enterprise D is a great
ensemble of actors who can carry a
scene individually if need be. The
movie makes great useof expanded
methods of storytelling and cre-
ation of atmosphere. However,
some of the cast are relegated to
cameos, just as Scotty and Chekov
are, but those who do get a chunk of
script make it march, especially
Spiner and Stewart. As does
McDowell in the role of the mad
Soran, which shouldn't surprise
anyone considering his work in A
Clockzvork Orange and Cat People. As
for Kirk, well, Shatner's acting tech-
nique is infamous and he doesn't
reach any new horizons here, even
though the chemistry of the three
original cast members is still crisp.
The effects are at times breath-
taking, as with the result of the
Enterprise saucer separation and
the stellar cartography room, and
the choreographed spaceship
battles are thrilling. But what makes
Generations the best of the bunch is
its resistance to a status quo atmo-
sphere when the movie's done.
Anything can happen, and quite a
bit does. Some are rectified. Others
aren't. When the "NextGeneration"
debuted, the Trek movies lost some
of their momentum because they
were stuck in a tight timeline of
events between their exploits and
that of the new crew. The thrill was
diminished by references and ap-
pearances of the original cast on the
new show (Why was Wrath of Khan
so good? The possibility of perma-
nent death for one or all of the
crew.). Butthecreationofnew open-
ended continuity, as opposed to
the limi tation of a religiously-stud-
ied chronology, is relieving and
encouraging, especially at the
thought of Star Trek VUL
The original television series is
put to bed with Kirk's involvement,
the second series can work with
much more time and money, and
TV is left in the hands of two series,
Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Now
that the movie series has been
handed over to the crew of Enter-
prise D, Star Trek can practice what
it preaches and boldly go forward.

The lighting for the show was
excellent. The combination of
lights and shadows in "Luna De
Sangre" really set the mood. Also,
the red moon created by a single
spotlight during the death scene
was incredibly moving and sym-
bolic. The costumes, for the most
part, were beautiful. I especially
liked the vibrant colors used in
the gvpsy costumes. Vivo's dress
in "Luna De Sangre which was
red and in my opinion very sym-
bolic, was gorgeous.
I truly found this performance
exceptional. The dancing was flaw-
less, as was the music provided by
the two flamenco guitarists. I didn't
understand the singing of the two
soloists, because it was in Spanish,
but that didn't hurt my under-
standing of either play. I found it
very interesting to listen to such a
different style of music than I nor-
mally hear. I can honestly say I
enjoyed every aspect of this per-
formance. I give this show 10 out
of 10 stars.
tractive. Sex and violence, already
linked on some subconscious level,
become one. The only difference is
that sex is messier, and that's the
other problem.
It's violence without conse-
quences. The people who are shot
die without any glimmer of suffer-
ing; they become faceless victims.
Except for the small patch of blood,
they might as well have slipped on
a banana peel. Very few people
like causing others to suffer, and so
this sterile violence is much more
If a movie is going to deal with
violence, I'd much prefer it if they'd
just go ahead and make it hurt. I'd
rather squirm in my seat than be-
ll come some kind of ghoul, enjoying
the deaths of others. Does this take
a way a bit of the catharsis of watch-
ing movie violence? A little, I sup-
pose, but that's a price I'm willing
to pay.
So which scene is more danger-
ous? I'd have to say the first, with
its humid panting gunfire stink,
poses a far more serious threat. If
violence is ugly, let us see it as such!
Maybe, like a nation of Pavlovian
dogs, we can be trained to avoid it.

Being an ECU cheerleader
means a lot more than just sup-
porting the football and bas-
ketball teams. The cheerlead-
ers are a competitive team that
puts in long hours practicing
and lifting weights. They are
viewed by the athletic depart-
ment as a service to the rest of
the teams, but they have loftier
goals � to compete nationally
on ESPN for the National
Cheerleading Championship.
"We have a lot of goals as a
team as far as going to nation-
als cheerleader T.J. Sawyer
said. "They break it up in to
four regions. Unfortunately,
we are in the Southeast and the
top 8 to 10 teams, year in and
year out, are from this region
NC State , UNC and South
Carolina. We have to make a
tape and have on it our fight
song and sideline routines.
They rank you according to
how good your tape is. Last
year, we finished eighth, and
only the top five in the region
go to nationals
They also feel like they have
an important role in getting
the crowd involved.
"Our job is to come to the
games and get the crowd to
show some school spirit
Chris Penhollow said. "In foot-
ball we try to get loud for the
defense and get the crowd to
cause confusion for the other
team's offense. The best was
the goal line stand against Vir-
ginia Tech. The crowd got so
loud that they couldn't
audibilize and they lost yards
on every play"
Training long and hard is
what it takes to put a polished
product out there every time
the Pirate cheerleaders per-
"We lift five days a week
Sawyer said. "The girls lift
twice a week plus aerobics ev-
ery day, outside of practice.
Practice is just like lifting for
me, because you have to lift the
girls and tumbling is very tir-
Injuries are just as prevalent
in cheering as other sports.
"We have a lot of wear and
tear injuries, bursitis and
tendinitis, lower back prob-
lems Sawyer said.
New coach Michael Shaffrey
is enthusiastic about his team's
chances in national competition.
"We could contend for na-
tionals Shaffrey said. "It takes
a lot of work, but we have a very
strong team. I do feel like we are
sort of in between a sport and a
club activity, because we don't
really have what we need as far
as facilities for practice time. It
is a big commitment-sometimes
seven days a week. I have com-
mitted athletes that work hard.
I just wish that we could have a
real commitment from the
school and athletic department
because these kids deserve
Often times the team has to
make appearances on behalf of
the school and this also cuts back
on their practice time. They
haven't let it dampen their spirit
in the least and look at cheering
as an honor and a privilege.
"I love cheering Camille
Gooch said. "It's a lot of fun.
When I walk out there I get re-
ally pumped up. I have cheered
ever since I was little. I think we
should have a really good
chance in national competition
if we get the opportunity to go
Simply wearing the school
colors is enough for sophomore,
Shana Swicegood.
"I do it for school pride
Swicegood said. "Nothing feels
better than wearing that purple
and gold uniform
Freshman, Amy Teague, who
was recently moved up to var-
sity from the JV team is also
very enthusiastic about being a
Pirate cheerleader. T love be-
ing involved in school activi-
ties Teague said. "I look it as
an honor to represent this uni-
versity and be recognized for
what we do
In short, the cheerleaders de-
serve more credit than they have
received in the past for what they
do. Without them it would be hard
to get the crowd as involved as
they are now. National recognition
on TV would be very good for the
school in terms of publicity and
fundraising. Coach Shaffrey and
his squad take a lot of pride in what
they do and both the athletic de-
partment and school should be
proud of them as well.

Last year as a redshirt fresh-
man, Williams showed flashes
of talent that got Pirate fans ex-
cited as he was starting to be
compared with former Pirate
standout WR Clayton Driver.
The two are similar in size and
playing style, in terms of being
physical players who get posi-
tion to gain an advantage over
opposing defensive backs.
"I feel like I had a very cred-
ible season Williams said. "I
want to break records. For me,
to be thought of as a big-time
player, 1 need to get the ball in
my hands a lot. I'm just waiting
to explode. That day is right
around the corner
After the watergun incident,
Williams has had to battle the
perception that people have of
him before they get to know him.
"The way I was raised my
mom and dad taught me not to
hold any grudges Williams
said. "I just wash my hands of
people. I feel like I am a good
person, easy to get along with. If

Williams takes his responsi-
bility as a role model seriously.
"I really like spending time
with little kids Williams said.
"It is good having people look at
you like that. I am glad that the
incident happened because it
made me grow up. Actions speak
louder than words. What you do
on and off the field reflects greatly
on what kind of person you are
In the past year Williams has
taken on a far greater responsi-

"We lost 61 percent of our

got a lot of new faces Payne
After point guard Kareem
Richardson transferred to
Evansville after two seasons at
ECU, Coach Payne was forced
to find another point guard. In
1994 there will be a three-way
race at point guard for the Pi-
Tony Parham, a 6-1 point
guard from Archbishop Carroll
High School in Washington
D.C. is a good passer and
"Tony may be the most tal-
ented, but he's also the most
fragile physically Payne said.
Damon Van Weerduizen,
from LaCenter, Washington is a
very smart point guard who is
about the same size as Parham.
"Damon is going to be good.
He's got lots of savvy. Right
now, he's real good in transi-
tion, but not near as good in
half-court against pressure, and
that's the same with all these
guys, because they're not used
to seeing what kind of pressure
they are getting at this level
Payne said.
Othello Meadows is also vy-
ing for the starting point guard
spot. A good shooter and passer
from Omaha, Nebraska, Mead-
ows could also see time at the
shooting guard position.
"I'm afraid it's going to be a
point-guard by committee, like
the four spot was last season
Payne said. "It is dangerous and
difficult, but until somebody es-
tablishes themselves, that's the
way it's going to be

from the shooting guard to the
point guard position is sopho-

member of the CAA All-Rookie
Team last year, Schaefbauer av-

"Skipp's playing very well
Payne said. "He's really raised
his game another level. He is
looking to score more. He's tak-
ing the ball to the basket better.
He's so smart without the ball,
he puts himself in a position to
The small forward position
will likely be filled by last year's
All-CAA Rookie selection Tim
Basham. He averaged 6.4 points
per game last season, and was
second on the squad in three-
point goals with 41.
Helping Gill in the low post
will be senior Chuckie
Robinson. The most physical
player on this team, he is about
as intense and emotional as a
player can get.
"Chuckie Robinson's style of
play this season is very similar
to last year's Payne said But
his consistency, his condition-
ing, his work ethic, his knowl-
edge of what we're doirg, his
leadership; all those things have
gone up a level
Players such as Don Douglas,
Vic Hamilton, Chuck Jones and
Von Bryant may also see some
playing time this season at the
center and low-post forward po-
In order for the Pirates to stay
tough in the CAA, they are go-
ing to have to be able to go too-
to-toe with ODU and JMU, two
teams the Pirates failed to beat
last year. ECU's road play was
pathetic last season. Besides
CAA victories over American
and George Mason, ECU lost all
other road conference games,
including a game with the 4-
23 William & Mary squad. Big
wins at home over Richmond
and UNC-Wilmington saved
ECU from plummeting into
the lower dungeon of the
CAA conference last year.
So with a full plate of cir-
cumstances on the table for
ECU basketball this 1994-95
season the Pirates must shoot
the ball well, (they were 10-2
last season when outshooting
their opponents from the
field) and keep pouring in the
points, (12-3 when scoring 75
points or more), the Pirates
should be able to hang with
the pack in the CAA race.
