ECU acquires property
Still no plans for parking deck
Wendy Rountree
Staff Writer
In the not-too-distant future,
students will have more spaces
to park their cars and to play
intramural sports.
Recently, ECU has acquired
about 12 acres of property next
to Allied Health, located on
Charles Boulevard.
"It's what is referred to as a
bargain sell said Richard
Brown, vice chancellor
for business affairs.
"The purchase compo-
nent is 6.1 acres and
the purchase price is
$500,000. The gift por-
tion is six acres, which
is an outright gift to
the university by Mr.
William Blount. That
property has a value
estimated somewhere
in the range of $700,000
or more
Brown said the
Blount family has been
residents of Greenville
for generations. Blount
has a particular inter-
est in the university
and serves on the ex-
ecutive committee of
the East Carolina Uni-
versity Foundation.
"The property being
acquired from Mr.
Blount, which is con-
tiguous to the campus,
is going to be devel-
oped into intramural
fields Brown said.
A main reason the
university likes the
Blount property is that
the campus will re-
main undivided.
"It is important to
remain contiguous to
reduce the distance
people have to travel
around campus
Brown said. "It's more
difficult to maintain a
campus that is spread
out and in a lot of dif-
ferent locations
Brown said it makes
it easier to protect the
campus' borders.
The fields will be re-
located to the Blount
property that is located
next to K Mart, and the
intramural fields now
behind Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium will be devel-
oped into more com-
muter parking spaces.
"The eventual con-
version of those areas
is part of the
university's Master
Plan said Dr. George
W. Harrell, assistant
vice chancellor for fa-
cilities. "We will take
that area next to the
stadium and develop parking
lot and push Ficklen Drive all
the way through to Berkeley
Brown said the expansion of
Ficklen Drive will also allow the
university to give better bus ser-
Though the university has
had little trouble gaining the
Blount property, ECU has had
problems acquiring another
piece of land.
Over the period of five years,
the university has tried to buy
CM. Eppes Middle School, lo-
cated behind College Hill.
Brown said the most recent
hold up is that the Pitt County
Commissioners are looking for
$7.5 million for the building to
ease the tax payers' burden in
paying for a bi and new middle
school. The university is giving
the countv commissioners until
Dec. 8 to reply ECU's new and
final offer.
"That is the day before the
next board of trustees meeting
Brown said. "The board of trust-
ees can consider the county com-
missioners response then deter-
mine how to move forward
Brown said this date is par-
ticularly important because only
the board of trustees can make
land acquisition recommenda-

ECU athletics have long been
a tradition here at ECU. How-
ever, while the athletic program
receives most of the attention,
other programs are often put on
the back burner.

ute the funds ECU receives.
These student funds are then
distributed to the different de-
partments and schools. What
Diehl found was that for every
S3 the arts receive, the athletic
department receives $91. This
hardly seems balanced to her,
especially considering that the
$3 is split up to go to the four
departments within the arts:
art, theater, dance and music.
"We the arts are not par-
ticularly happy about
what was going on, and
we are wondering what
we could do Diehl
As a result, Diehl has
decided to file a stu-
dents-only petition
against the university
to request that more
funds be directed to the
arts. The petition will
be directed to the chan-
cellor as well as the
board of directors, who
meet and approve the
Diehl is considering
several possible solu-
tions to this problem.
One would be a dona-
tion box on the tuition
bill. Another, but un-
likely, solution would
be an increase in stu-
dent fees by one dollar.
That dollar would go di-
rectly to the arts.
This funding issue is
important because ath-
letics also receive fund-
ing from ticket sales,
concessions sales and
students fees. The arts
programs receive
money from student
fees only.
"We have nothing

rum that will meet on

Missouri University is paying 10 percent of this year's junior class

more than 75 hours were not allowed to register for classes without
taking the mandatory C-BASE exam. It has now been replaced with

The ECU manuscript collection
has expanded its numerous hold-
ings in maritime and nautical his-
tory with the addition of a ledger
book that contains information
about ships that sank throughout
the world between 1855 and 1858.
The ledger contains information
about the sunken ships including
the names of the ships, the cap-
tains, where the ships departed
from and their destinations, what
happened to the ships, lives lost in
the sinking of the ships and, in
some cases, the value of the ships.
"This particular ledge I imag-
ine could have all kinds of uses for
our maritime history students and
faculty in identifying particular
shipwrecks and getting an indica-
tion of where ships are sailing to
and from and the value of lives lost
in particular sea disasters said
Donald Lennon, coordinator of
special collections and director of
the ECU Manuscript Collection.
The manuscript collection has
documents dealing with maritime
history that date back as far as the
late-18th Century. The manuscript
collection was begun in the 1960s
and contains extensive material
dealing with military and North
Carolina history. In dealing with
North Carolina and military his-
tory, a large amount of informa-
tion regarding maritime history
can be found, Lennon said.
"In recent years we have con-
centrated a lot of our effort in col-
lecting naval and maritime history,
because it is an area where there is
a lot of interest on this particular
campus Lennon said.
About 30 collections are added
each year to the manuscript collec-
tion. Most of the materials received
are given to the university as gifts.
These collections are often the com-
plete papers of a person contain-
ing journals, letters and other per-
sonal items.
A large part of the nautical col-
lection was donated to ECU by the
late Admiral Ernest Eller. Eller,
who directed the Naval Historical
Center in Wash' igton, dona ted his
personal library to ECU before his
death. H's library is among one of
the largest collections in existence.
The papers of George Leland
Dyer, a Navy commander during
the Spanish-American War, are
also among the nautical collection.
These papers document nearly 20
years of Dyer's life. Dyer was the
governor general of Guam and
commanded a blockade on Cuba
and an attack on Madrid. The col-
lection includes thousands of pages
of letters Dyer wrote to his wife
during his stay at sea.
"These letters from Com-
mander Dyer to his family
should have an enormous
amount of research potential
particularly for the Spanish-
American War period and hav-
ing to do with his experiences in
China and other parts of the
world Lennon said.
Lennon said various naval
authorities have indicated the
holdings in the nautical collec-
tion are outstanding.
"We are probably the only
university repository that
spends a greatdeal of emphasis
in collecting naval history
Lennon said. "We have been
endorsed by the U.S. Naval
Foundation, which is the major
naval foundation in Washing-
ton, D.C.

While the Hotdogger pro-

1988, the Weinermobiles have

"That has grown into what we

According to Gretzema, the
Weinermobile has a 71 percent

means that 71 percent of Ameri-

American icons which have such
a significant awareness rate are
the Goodyear Blimp, Ronald

It is not all fun and games,
though. Those chosen by Oscar

Please � No more headaches!
Class registration, one of the most
trying times during the school year, has
come and gone once again. And since
hindsight vision is 2020, TEC would
like to identify some of the flaws in the
class registration system we have
The most irritating consequence ot
registering for classes is having to wait
in line for long periods of time. Many
students wait for hours, and some even
camp out overnight to ensure that in the
morning they get the classes they need.
And then, to add insult to injury, often
after students finally get to the computer
terminal, they are told that they cannot
get their classes until they pay one fine
or another (library book, parking ticket,
Is all this really necessary? Surely
there exists a remedy that would
preclude all the accompanying
aggravation of class registration. Many
universities, some larger than ECU,
simply allow students to register for classes
over the phone. Why can't we have such a
system? That system, if applied to ECU,
would surely relieve many headaches.
And for those students who are denied
classes because of overdue fines, could
there be an easier way to prevent this? Of
course paying the tine in the first place is
called for, but we at TEC believe the
school administration should mail
those who owe outstanding payments
a letter before the registration period
to forewarn them of their impending
doom if their indebtedness continues.
A system should be worked out where
students could pay their fines at the
registration point itself.
Hopefully, faculty and student
government will act on this outline of
complaints and allow ECU to be an
above-standard experience. If positive
measures are taken, this time of the
year would be a bit more enjoyable in
the future for ECU students.
America the beautiful, or is it ugly?
by Jeff Day
We spend our mornings
hoping for the leader of action, of
one who through decisiveness
and ruthlessness, if need be, will
exercise power to bring us secu-
rity and prosperous lives.
We spend our afternoons
hoping for the leader of poesy
and daring, of one who through
the strength of ideals and the elo-
quence to embody them will teach
us to dream and care again.
And in the evening, when
neither selfishness nor exultation
have proved anythingbuta recipe
for exhaustion, we hope for the
leader who can at once solve the
great political problems of our
age without slighting the equally
apparent urge for selfless human-
Long have Americans suf-
fered from this schizophrenic
condition, that psychic split be-
tween seif-promotion and self-
sacrifice. We feel the impulse to
care only for one's own, yet are
possessed of the aspiration to
carry the dreams of the world.
We don't want to admit that the
task of attempting both is too
great for us. We seek, above all in
our presidents, a leader of such
breadth of greatness that his
policy and vision are in the com-
bination proof that our greatness
as a people is equal to the task.
There is too little of the sin-
ner and too much of the saint to
condemn the American charac-
ter. There is too little of the saint
and too much of the sinner to
exalt it. Those who would exalt
the ruthless paradigm of realism
might do well to remember that
idealism never so flourishes as
when ideals are nakedly ne-
And the pundits of an un-
limited altruism reap benefit
when reminded that too many
noble causes will only exhaust
the hero.
In the '50s freedom of dis-
course was temporarily sus-
pended out of fear of commu-
nism. In the following decade,
America exhausted her resources
trying to build the Great Society at
home while fighting a war in
Southeast Asia, ostensibly on
behalf of the ideal of Western de-
mocracy. Never had the nation
struggled so valiantly to carry the
dreams of humanity, both its own
and others.
After Watergate, we elected
an idealist who didn't know how
to inspire with ideals. In the '80s
we elected someone who knew
how to inspire with ideals but
wasn't really an idealist. We draw
back from a leader who speaks of
lofty pursuits but means what he
says too firmly. We reflect in guilt
for having followed a leader who
we admit in hindsight didn't re-
ally mean it at all.
The policies of recent years
betray America's spiritual crisis
over the just proportion of the
idealist's dream and the
pragmatist's necessity.
We needed to fight in the
Persian Gulf on behalf of vital
interests, and that is what we did.
Compassion alone called for in-
tervention in the Balkans to pre-
vent genocide, and intercede we
failed to do. Yet without strate-
gic interest we spent millions
and sustained the loss of sol-
diers' lives to try to diminish
the Somalian people of their
bereaved state.
We forced a Haitian dicta-
torship to step aside to restore
power in the name of democ-
racy and on behalf of a leader
whose speeches not long ago
bristled with anti-American
One can find places for
pride or shame. Forty million
Americans live below the pov-
erty line. Yet few countries in
the world can boast of a level of
prosperity equal to that of the
United States and enjoyed by a
large majority of the popula-
One can bow one's head
The Republicans are here!
The Republicans have taken over
the Senate and they are wasting
no time getting down to business.
So libertarians and moderates be-
On their first order of busi-
ness is an amendment allowing
prayer in the public schools.
Headed by that " likable" fellow,
Newt Gingrich, the Republicans,
with a strong vote of confidence
from religious fundamentalists,
are trying to bring some of that
"old time religion" to the kids.
I don't wish to digress too
far from my main topic by dis-
cussing Newt Gingrich, but I think
it is interesting to consider the
images that the name conjures up.
Newt-a slimy worm-like critter
and Gingrich-rearrange a few let-
ters and you get grinch-the misan-
thropic villain of a quaint Dr. Seuss
Those familiar with the Dr.
Seuss tale know that the grinch
finally has a change of heart, but
somehow I suspect that this
"Ging-grinch" will not be so eas-
ily won over by all the Demos in
As to the impending ques-
tion of an amendment permitting
school prayer, I have to wonder
why this issue should be pressing
all of a sudden. For one, school
prayer has and always will be a
matter of course despite federal
intervention. Secondly, and not to
overstate the obvious, Article I of
the Constitution reads as follows:
Congress shall make no laiv respect-
ing an establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
The Republicans are either
illiterate or simply have a flagrant
disregard for the constitutionality
of their decisions. Which scenario
happens to be the case is not im-
portant. What is at issue here is
that the government is trying to
assume powers and responsibili-
ties for which it does not have the
Most political constituents,
Republican or Democrat, would
prefer less federal control than the
government already exercises.
However, Republican constituents
have foolishly played into the
government's hands by allowing
them to usurp more autonomy
than they should possess.
What troubles me particu-
larly is the political indifference of
my peers in the twenty-something
age group. In reading the Parade
insert in Sunday's paper, I was
appalled at that comments made
by those twenty-something col-
lege students polled on the school
prayer issue. Most were uncon-
cerned or more than willing to
allow the government to step in
and mandate school prayer. If the
government outlawed MTV
would the twenty-something gen-
eration be so compliant?
Let me refresh the minds of
those young voters ,who helped
toelect the Republicans in the most
recent election, as to the attitude
expressed by the Republican can-
didate, George Bush, in the last
presidential election. Bush, like Bill
Clinton, was given the opportu-
nity to come on MTV before the
election to state his political posi-
tion to young voters. However,
Bush not only declined the offer,
but he also responded by making
the comment that he was not go-
ing to pander to a "bunch of teeny-
For those young voters who
think that the newly-elected Re-
publican faction is going to serve
the interests of their young con-
stituents, I hate to tell you, but
they do not give jack-squat about
you or your interests. Anyway,
the Republicans are too busy pan-
dering to the demands of the reli-
gious fundamentalists, who were
the most influential in getting them
As to the question of whether
there should be an allowance for
prayer in the public schools, I have
to ask two things? One, what reli-
gion will be the standard for prayer
in the schools? Second, how can
any institutionalized prayer con-
ceivably honor all religious de-
nominations that are represented
here in America?
My response is that any at-
tempts at institutionalized prayer
will inevitably fall short 6f honor-
By Joshua White
ing the religious diversity that
exists in the classroom setting. In
a class where Bobby is a catholic,
Martin is Jewish, Yasahiro is a
Buddhist and Jimmy is an athe-
ist, how can one prayer express
the spiritual aspirations of all
these students?
I have heard people pro-
claim time and time again that
this is a Christian nation. While I
am inclined to agree that Chris-
tianity is the predominate faith
in America, I do not believe that
it is fair to disregard all the other
religious affiliations and simply
say: "Well, tough luck, this is a
Christian nation whetheryou like
it or not
What makes America
unique, at least in theory, is
that we are socially, politically
and religiously diverse. To
federally mandate religious
practices, or any other beliefs
for that matter, is an infringe-
ment on our constitutional
rights. It is not only an in-
fringement on our rights as
citizens, but also an attempt
on the part of congress to re-
write the laws of this country,
which is abhorrent to say the
I think the issue of reli-
gion would best be resolved
by people worshipping how
they want without forcing oth-
ers to accept their views. Spiri-
tuality is not about politics or
amendments. Spirituality is
about an individual's private
and cherished beliefs, and I do
not think that the government
is qualified to make any rules
regarding individual or collec-
tive morality.
If the Republicans and

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Over two years ago, I noticed that there were
no recycling bins located in the areas of campus
where plastic-bottled drinks were sold. Using a
"comment card I suggested that the university
install convenient recyclilrig containers for
plastic. I was told that Dining Services and the
grouds department would solve the problem
within a couple of months.
Six months later, I asked about this again
and was told that the recycling issue would be
taken care of after remodeling of the Student
Stores was complete.
Nineteen months after my original
suggestion, I noticed that no progress had been
made, so I wrote another "comment card I
learned that to place additional bins for plastic
bottles would require hiring more Grounds
people than funding allowed.
It is now 26 months later, and I have yet to
see any recycling bins in the essential areas.
The purple plastic refillable mugs are a fine
solution to the problem of excess throwaway
cups, and the recycling trailer is a good idea for
newspapers, etc but a permanent plastic bin
inside the dorms and in the snack bars would be
a practical solution to a serious problem. There
are now iron trashcans outside the Student Stores.
Why couid not two of these be designated for
plastic containers?
If students used such bins properly, this
would result in the containers for actual trash
having to be emptied less often. So why would
additional personnel be required to dispose of
recyclable, as opposed to discarded containers?

once-glorious music scene in
North Carolina?
The other night I ventured
into Raleigh to see a band at
the Brewery only to find it
scarcely populated and very
apathetic. I was talking to
Jack, the Brewery's legend-
ary sound guru, and I was
astounded to find out that
the small crowd of around
80 people was the largest
crowd that they've seen in
months. In fact, the night
before a band played to a
whopping crowd of three
people! Yes folks, three
people! What has happened
to the days when you had to
stand in line outside of clubs
to see Polvo and other local
acts? Where are all the
people that used to relish
the sounds of a live band?
The following Friday
night I ventured down to
O'Rocks only to find that we
are one of the last towns or
"scenes" to get hit with this
anti-band attitude. The At-
tic and O'Rocks have been
steadily losing crowd sup-

figure out why. It's sad to
walk into a club and watch a
really good band perform to
a crowd of 10 to 15 people.

that mean there aren't other

so concerned with drink spe-
cials that you can't come and
check out a new band every

One argument that I have
heard recently is that the
same bands are always play-

don't feel like going to see
the same band every week-

more frequently. Why?

The comedy of Fred
Garbo comes to Wright
Jennifer Coleman
Staff Writer
His face may not be familiar,
but Fred Garbo is as well-known
in the world of children's televi-
sion as Barney or Big Bird. After
all, who else can step behind a
tree (that he's twice as wide as,
by the way) and disappear?
That's right! Fred Garbo is
none other than the man behind
(or rather, inside) Sesame Street's
lovable dog Barkley � and now
he's coming to ECU.
Garbo, along with Brazilian
ballerina Daielma Santos, is
bringing his two-person show,
"The Inflatable Comedy The-
atre to ECU's Wright Audito-
rium as part of the ECU Family
Fare Series.
The Inflatable Comedy The-
ater is unlike any show you will
ever see. Garbo and Santos are
not only masters of physical com-
edy, dance and juggling, but have
invented inflatable costumes,
props and set pieces that add up
to one hour of Tight' entertain-
ment. Audiences of all ages will
enjoy the story of the world's only
human blimp, Fred Zepplin �
The Inflatable Man.
In a show that consists less of
story and more of delightful im-
provisation which feeds off the
audience, Garbo and Santos keep
the audience entertained and in-
volved with the show. The
audience's reaction is as impor-
tant a part of the script as any
lines or choreography. The bal-
loon-like costumes inflate and
transform to form new and sur-
prising shapes. Both Garbo and
Santos have inflatable costumes
that allow them to bound across
the stage as if they were in zero
gravity. The bright colors in the
set and costumes make the entire
show a delight to watch.
Daielma Santos is Garbo's
partner in the "Inflatable Com-
edy Theatre She is originally
from Brazil, and has worked as a
ballerina in many dance compa-
nies. She was the principal dancer
in the Opera Paulista Company
of Sao Paulo, and is widely ac-
claimed as a talented choreogra-
pher and teacher. Currently she
is a guest artist with the Portland
Ballet Company in Maine.
Fred Garbo, who'invented' the
"Inflatable Comedy Theatre has
been a performer most of his life.

Melrose offers satisfying brain candy
Kevin Chaisson
Staff Writer
I was sitting around last Mon-
day night, enjoying what little
time off I had, and trying to think
of something to do that wasn't
too taxing on my already-vacat-
ing brain cells. A period of chan-
nel surfing brought me to the FOX
network and the Aaron Spelling-
produced opus Melrose Place. Cer-
tainly brainless, but I had made a
pact to myself not to cheapen my
entertainment values and watch
Melrose anymore. Yeah, I confess
I was an avid viewer for awhile
(addict more like it), but had
slowly weaned myself away by
engaging in more educational
pursuits on Mondays, like my
laundry. But just like that pesky
Mafia, every time I think I'm out,
they pull me back in.
For those of you unfamiliar
with Melrose lore who want to
begin watching, don't fret � it's
not really necessary. In fact, any
Melrose history that predates the
arrival of Heather Locklear as the
villainous (yet somehow misun-
derstood) Amanda shouldn't be
acknowledged. The pre-Heather
period Melrose was dull, preachy,
whiny and featured a couple of
cast members that fell by the way-
side when the show was re-
vamped. It's now streamlined
into eight regular cast members,
each of whom can be summed up
in vicious generalizations.
First, there's Michael (Thomas
Callabro), a surgeon and the
show's current S.O.B and Jane
(Josie Bisset), his fashion designer
good girldishrag ex-wife. Add
to the soup another now-defunct
couple, whiny nice-guy Billy (An-
drew Shue), an ad writer, and
Allison (Courtney Thorne-
Smith), a whiny nice-girl-with-a-
penchant-for-booze ad exec. Jake
(Grant Show), the working-class
studboy, and Jo (Daphne
Zuniga), the Cool Nice Girl, have
also called it quits as a couple.
Throw in Sydney (Laurie
Landon), Jane's psychotic (yet
somehow misunderstood), in-
credibly promiscuous little sister
and Matt (Doug Savant), the To-
Are-Socially-Conscious charac-
ter, and you've got a nice mix.
And, of course, there's Heather.
Locklear, a seasoned TV vixen
at 32, swooped into Melrose a few
seasons back and became the
show's permanent Special Guest
Star. Luckily for the producers,
Locklear's Amanda was an en-
gaging character, and by sheer
virtue of association, made the
others on the show that way too.
So far, Amanda has taken pole
position at the agency from
Allison, making her Allison's
boss. She also seduced and
then hired Allison's ex, Billy,
as a writer. In addition to hav-
ing a boring "meaningful"
fling with studboy Jake; a
crazed, overprotective ex-con
dad with Mafia ties; and a blos-
soming scheme to snatch the
Agency out from under her
ailing boss, Amanda contin-
ues to sink her talons in all of
the other cast members' affairs
by buying up the Melrose Place
apartments. And that's one

The Clause: one law that should be off books
Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
The Christmas season just
seems to be getting earlier and
earlier. On Nov. 11 the first
Christmas film of the season ap-
peared in theaters wrapped in a
red and white outfit and mar-
keted under the cute title The
Santa Clause.
The Santa Clause stars Home
Improvement's Tim Allen as Scott
Calvin, the man who reluctantly
becomes the new Santa Claus.
Because of the family appeal pro-
vided by both the story and
Allen, Disney (the studio respon-
sible for the film) is sure to get
many happy returns from this
Christmas story.
But do they deserve it?
Though families may treat
themselves to an early present
by seeing The Santa Clause, many
may be wishing they could re-
turn the gift. Far from being a
theatrical feature, what The Santa
Clause merits is a television slot
on a Sunday night before Christ-
mas. Disney should be scolded
for foisting this film upon gull-
ible film patrons eager to join in
the holiday spirit. How could a
company so adept at producing
such cinematic treasures from
their animation division con-
tinue to develop such misguided
live action features? Disney's
live action films, instead of the
genuine artistic gift of their ani-
mated features, seem like a
Cracker Jack prize.
The typical Disney touches ex-
ist within The Santa Clause. The
divorced parents (Allen and
Wendy Crewson) of Charlie (Eric
Lloyd) have an amicable, if
strained, separation. Laura, the
mom, is presented as not having
a fault in the world. She has re-
married a psychoanalyst named
Neal (Judge Reinhold) who pon-
tificates about Scott's problems
in the most cloying manner pos-
sible. Between the trite morality
and the tired caricatures stands
the insipid story.
The Santa Clause begins on
Christmas Eve. Charlie is spend-
ing the night with his dad.
When sounds are heard on
the roof, Scott investigates
only to wind up startling
Santa Claus and making him
lose his balance. In Santa's
pocket is a card that states
that should anything happen
to Santa, the person reading
the card should don the suit
and hop in the sleigh. "The
reindeer will know what to
do the card concludes.

Bon Jovi
Cross Road

When I was in high school, if
you wanted to see me wretch in
pain all you had to do was just
mention the name of Bon Jovi or
hum one of their many success-
ful pop tunes. At the time I was
deep into punk, gothic and the
severe weirdness of the under-
ground music of the time. The
power of Bon Jovi was an insult
to me and those like me, how-
ever few there were.
Well, those kids from New
Jersey, the home of Bruce
Springsteen, have just released
a greatest hits CD, Cross Road,
with a couple of new songs
thrown in to test the top 40 wa-
ters once again. The "best of"
songs have been gleaned from
their past six albums: Keep The
Faith, Nciv Jersey, Slippery When
Wet, Bon Jovi, 7800 Fahrenheit
and Jon's one solo effort, Young
Guns 11. There are three new
tracks on the album including
the new and improved "Prayer
I always grouped Bon Jovi
with those other bastions of bad
music: Ratt, Poison and Motley
Crue. However, when I really
think about it, Bon Jovi is in a
slightly different class from
those dudes. The other groups
almost always sang about sex
or some plastic pseudo-evil sub-
ject that wouldn't scare a
preacher's wife. Bon Jovi sings
about love; adolescent love, but
still love. "Livin' On A Prayer"
and "Lay Your Hands on Me"
are two such songs of a strug-
gling young love. Trite and bor-
ing, yes, but extremely popu-
Of course they have their
songs of heartbreak: "You Give
Love a Bad Name" and "Bad
Medicine"� two truly awful
songs dealing with the same
worn out subject. Then there is
their one gem of originality,
"Wanted Dead or Alive It is a
song about road life, which they
should know well, and all the
trials of being a big rock star.
Despite how bad it hurts to
say it, there are a few good quali-
ties about the band. Jon himself
has a strong voice, and Richie
Sambora is an extremely accom-
plished guitarist. The keyboard
player, David Bryan, had clas-
sical interests before he joined
the band and even had plans to
study at Julliard. All five mem-
bers have been together for 11
years, so they work very well as
a group. Talent is one thing I
look for in a band, so why do I
hate them so much? Because
they play it safe.
I guess we need the cheesy
ballad singers to counteract the
harsh realities of life, and that is
where Bon Jovi serves their
purpose. Why listen to Kurt
Cobain scream about life in-
modern America when you
can lose yourself in a story
about forbidden teenage love
in a cheap hotel room? Like I
said, they avoid reality and
play it safe.
So there are three new
songs on the CD. "Someday
I'll Be Saturday Night" is a
song about being wild and
carefree under discouraging
circumstances. Oh, wow. "Al-
ways" is another pathetic bal-
lad about lost love. Then
there is the new and im-
proved "Prayer '94 It is a
slowed-down version of this
classic Bon Jovi hit with an
acoustic feel and a synthe-

Danzig strikes fearful chord
Brandon Waddell
Staff Writer
The house lights went off and
the raging crowd turned sinister
as flaming wads of toilet paper
arced through the air. The min-
utes that preceded the main act,
Danzig, should have forewarned
me that "general admission" is
fancy terminology for "only the
insane stay on the floor When
the first note shot through my
ears, it was then that I, your fear-
less and intrepid staff writer, be-
gan to feel as though my hours
were numbered among the an-
ger-ridden mob of faithful Danzig
Opening act, Type O Negative,
managed to get the already- en-
thused crowd into a frenzy with
their speed metal sound and
thrashing about onstage. They
performed all original material;
no cover songs. Though many un-
derground bands are unable to
get a crowd motivated playing
their own songs, Type O Negative
accomplished and exceeded their
job to get the boisterous audience
members ready for Danzig.
Danzig is currently on a North
American tour supporting their
fourth CD appropriately titled
Danzig4, released early last month.
They played at the Civic Center in
Raleigh last Wednesday night to
an intense crowd of about 600. The
entireband was clad in black: black
T-shirts, black leather pants, black
boots and all band members have
black hair. The stage setup was
simple, yet threatening. On either
side of the drum kit were inverted
crosses; all speakers were held to-
gether by black cargo netting and
bolted to the stage, obviously to
save them from the onslaught of
fans. Judging from appearances,
one could immediately recognize
that this show would be an omi-
nous experience to say the least,
but the show hadn't even started
After a few measures of the
opening song, frontman Glenn
Danzig finally appeared under the
tight, red spotlight. The crowd
erupted and thepushingand shov-
ing quickly gave way to what one
concert-goer referred to as "The

On the floor of the Civic Center,
the violence was real, not unlike
an encounter between two rival
Los Angeles street gangs. The only
difference was there were no sides,
it was each man for himself. It was
more like a battlefield than any
concert I've ever attended as the
casualties piled up. Stretchers were

friend? Not only do I find this
behavior ridiculous, but pathetic
as well. I guess only those of you
who go and have a good time
there have an answer for this,
and I invite you to tell me, be-
cause I have never had fun in
any of these places, and I do not
think I ever will.
However, I have found that
with every problem, there is usu-
ally a simple solution, and this
happens to be one of those prob-
lems. Basically, stop complain-
ing about how the same bands
are always playing here, because
that is not the case, and start to
go see some of the bands that are
new, because some of them are
really good! These bands may
not be your typical dance club
music with the pumping bass
and elaborate mixing, but some
of these bands could someday
be the new buzz clip on MTV,
and you'll get to see them before
anyone else. So, put that in your
pot and stir it for a little while,
and while it simmers, go and
check out local bands, because
pretty soon they are going to
quit playing here too.

Tim Allen does a respect-
able job, but the viewer can
see his routine on television.
Allen adds nothing to his char-
acter. At one point Scott
Calvin looks at a toy tool belt
with wonder. This one scene
may be the only real pleasure
of the film and the only
unique aspect that Tim Allen
brings to the film. The rest of
the cast is like so much tinsel
on the tree, necessary to the
film, but not add ing any thing
to it. Allen serves as the lights
on the tree and tries to pro-
vide some dim illumination.
So much in The Santa
Clause defies logic. The origi-
nal Santa Claus falls from the
roof; yet when Scott becomes
Santa, he is always lifted
through the air by his sack of
toys. So how could the origi-
nal Santa Claus ever fall? In
the original story Scott was
supposed to shoot Santa. I
guess the filmmakers do have
some sense because they al-
tered that scene. Later a magi-
cal ball gets introduced into
the story, yet its function
never gets clearly explained.
A story like The Santa Clause
needs magic to carry the
storyline, but the only magic
in this film is how it even got
off the drawing board. More
magic lies with the few pages
of Chris Van Allsburg's The
Polar Express than in the en-
tire length of The Santa Clause.
The low quality of The Santa
Clause almost makes me anx-
ious for Miracle on 34th Street,
which is a miracle because
John Hughes grates on my
nerves. Children will enjoy
The Santa Clause if only be-
cause of the guy in the red
suit. Otherwise, the bickering
divorced parents, the staid,
analytical step-father, the ro-
botic, mechanical reindeer
and the minimal production
value make The Santa Clause
seem like a lump of coal in
one's cinematic stocking.
On a scale of one to ten, The
Santa Clause rates a four.

Ruggers fall in nat'l tourney
Casey Brannigan
Staff Writer
Tine emotional high of playing
until you lose got the Pirate ruggers
to the final eight in the east before
the sky fell in. After beating Caro-
lina (26-23) in early November to
enter the national championship
tournament, the ruggers disposed
of Georgia Tech (26-9) before travel-
ing to Annapolis, Md. where they
defeated Virginia Tech (24-12) but
lost to Navy, the number-two team
in the country, (6b-3).
The season ended with the Pi-
rates having gone further than any
other NorthCarolinacollegiate team
in history. In their run toward the
championship of over 400 collegiate
rugby clubs, the Pirate ruggers de-
feated every North Carolina colle-
giate side in the Spring-1994 cam-
paign, then won their division in the
fall. This unique triple crown, with
championships in Division I, Divi-
sion II and Matrix Competition, has
never been done before.
Unlike preceding years, the Pi-
rates then began to move through
the tournament brackets in their
quest for a national title. They de-
feated Georgia Tech with iron de-
fense and an all-out, go-tor-broke
attacking rugbv. In theGeorgia Tech
game, the Pirate ruggers probably
played their best match of the sea-
In Annapolis, the ruggers faced
perennial North Carolina-nemesis
Virginia Tech and outscored them
with a fine display of 15-man, at-
tacking rugby punctuated with a
rockhard defense. ECU was led by
Richard Moss, who nailed fourpen-
alty goals and a conversion to put 14
points on the board. Rick Snow and
Bvron Sullivan each got tries as the
Pirates came from behind to get into
the third round of 32 teams.
"You pass to score tries but you
kick to win games said coach Larry
Babits. "Opie Moss came through
despite the wind and bad angles for
Theirdestinv in their own hands,
the Pirates knew what they had to
do against Navy, a 55-10 winner

"Coach told the towards to hold
their own because our backs were
superior to Navy's Sullivan said.
"Unfortunately, we got beaten
Nlaw did nothing fancy. They
stuck to basic 10-man rugby and
weie technically excellent in retain-
ing possession of the ball. They ran
few plays, but they ran them repeat-
edly at such a speed that the Pirate
defense was stretched, then broken.
Even at that, the Pirates could
point with pride to holding Navy
out of their end zone longer than
any other team this year. It was al-
most six minutes into the match
when Navy finally got all the points
thev would need. ECU had scoring
opportunities throughout the match,
but penalties and poor play selec-
tion snuffed them out as surely as
did the Navy defense. At halftime,
the score stood 37-0, and only a Moss
penalty 30 seconds into the second
half averted a shutout.
Despite the horrific 66-3 score,
the Pirate ruggers were pleased
with the season.

Bryan BurweU and originally appeared
in yesterday's USA Today.
The issue is no longer about
whether the nation's capital would
react favorably to the Washington
Bullets and their recent acquisition
ofChrisWebberandJuwan Howard.
No sir, the only question now is
when do we start hosing down this
previously cynical city?
How giddy are Washingtonians
about this hoop renaissance charged
by the Fab Two?
In a front-page article in Sunday's
Washington Post Style section, an
unabashed bit of satirical boosterism
that projected the meaning of life in
D.C. over the next 20 years as a result
of Webber and Howard. We give
you this brief excerpt:
"You read it here first Let it be
known that on a single glorious day
November 17,1994�the fortunes
of the Capital City were instantly
reversed. It was on that day that a
basketball superstar named Chris
Webber was traded from the Golden
state Warriorsond the Bullets signed

ball, and tomorrow to Washington.
"Because Washington, D.C. is
about to become the Florence of the
20th Century
D.C. is out of control. Two weeks
ago, in the great pro basketball uni-
verse, Washington wasn't even the
Fort 1 ee, N.Jofthe late 20th century.
Now it's Florence1
With this as a backdrop, we take
you to the USAir Arena Saturday
night, wherea selloutcrowd of 18,736
have "grown ugly and impatient be-
cause the Great 1 loop Renaissance
wasn't happening.
The Bullets were on their way to
their fifth consecutive defeat�No. 3
since the arrival of Webber and
Howard � a particularly unsightly
112-96 loss to the Los Angeles Lak-
ers, and the boos rained down.
The fans were foolishly expect-
ing miracles. They want immedi-
ate gratification on the run of sea-
son-ticket sales that turned the
Bullets into the hottest ticket in
But when you drop two new
players onto a team two weeks
into the season without training
camp � even players as talented
as last year's NBA Rookie of the
Year (Webber) and the fifth pick
in this year's draft (Howard) �
miracles don't happen so easily.
The Bullets are like a large and
inviting present on Christmas Eve.

experience and dL spline to execute
under pressure. They took us out of
our game plan and left us hanging.
We were competitive, but what was
good in North Carolina is inadequate
in the national tournament
The Pirates can certainly be proud
of making the final eight in the east.
USA Rugby East has over 200 colle-
giate clubs, twice the total of any-
other territory. This means the com-
petition for the lone eastern repre-
sentative is especially fierce. Oddly
enough, had the Pirates lost to Caro-
lina, they almost certainly would
have reached the eastern final four
through the weak Group IV region.
It is obvious the ECU rugby club has
made major improvements over the
last three years. This year, thought
to be a rebuilding phase, shows how
far thev have come.
The Pirates will reap individual
benefits from their team success.

Several ruggers are under con-
siderationfor the USA Rugby East
collegiate team. Others will be
selected for the North Carolina
collegiate select side. The higher
level all-star training and compe-
tition is important because team
leaders will bring back new and
better ways of doing things. The
trickle down effect had a major
impact on the 1994 team when
five players were selected to the
East all-star team and one went
on to All American standing.
The impact of better coaching
and greater intensity is impor-
tant because almost half of this
year's team will not be back in the
spring due to graduation. Three
key positions must be filled with
new players in January. Despite
having to replace vital players,
the future looks bright.
"We are a good side. Navy
was just better on the day

"We have a solid core to build on.
