Booze it" program deemed successful
Katy Newton
Staff Writer
The eyes of the nation are on
North Carolina. On Nov. 14,
"Booze It & Lose It" went into
effect and became one ot the
largest anti-drunk driving ef-
forts ever launched in the United
States. Three weeks later, "Booze
It & Lose It" has come to a close
with a whopping 3,858 driving
while intoxicated (DWI) arrests
under its belt.
For the past three weeks, law
enforcement officials imple-
mented "Booze It & Lose It" by
setting up around 400 check-
points per week throughout
North Carolina's 100 counties.
Chief FT. D'Ambra of the Bethel
Police Department said, "We
were looking for DWIs and any
other offenses we could find

The checkpoints were in the
form of roadblocks, and at these
roadblocks, each driver was re-
quired to present a driver's li-
cense and vehicle registration.
Officers ran checks on license
and vehicle tag numbers, and
they also made sure people were
wearing their seat belts and
properly restraining their chil-
dren. If officials thought a driver
had been drinking, they would
conduct verbal and motor field
tests and, if necessary, use the
passive alcohol sensor, a device
that allows officers to measure
alcohol concentrations.
"We're not doing anything
different than what we have
been doing said 1st Sgt. W.D.
Campbell of the North Carolina
Highway Patrol. "The difference
is in the combined effort In
Pitt County, this collaboration
included the Highway Patrol,
the Pitt County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, the Department of Motor
Vehicles and local police depart-
ments, which included
Greenville, Bethel, Winterville
and Ayden.
While efforts to stop drunk
driving are old news, "Booze It
& Lose It" is innovative in its
approach. Emotionalappealsby
innocent victims in wheelchairs
and by distressed mothers of
children killed by drunk drivers
are touching, but they simplv
are not deterring the thousands
of people who get behind the
wheel after an evening (or after-
noon or morning) of partying.
Col. R.A. Barefoot of the
North Carolina Highway Patrol
recognizes the problem. "Re-
search shows that appeals to do
what's right don't work for
people who drink and drive
Barefoot said in a press release
"What deters them is the risk of
getting caught and losing their
license. Like the television
ads say, 'We're going to get

Even though drunk driv-
ing has become quite the po-

last vear, there were 469 al-
cohol-related deaths in
North Carolina. The good
news is that the numbers are
going down. There were 534
alcohol related deaths in 1992
and 561 in 1991. But as
D'Ambra pointed out,

Parking deck
questions continue
Popular idea has price tag
Wendy Rountree
Staff Writer
To build a parking deck or to
�lot build a parking deck � that
seems to be the question loom-
ing across campus because ot the
current parking situation
"There has been rhetoric on-
going about parking decks ever
since I've been here ami I've been
here now five years said Layton
Getsinger, assistant ice chancel-
lor for business affairs "Every
time there is a parking problem
or perceived parking problem or
there's a diminishing numbei oi

construction, people always

Getsinger said when ECU
went up on parking decals from
$50 to S70 three years ago. stu-
dents began parking their cars
on the streets of the neighbor-
hoods surrounding the campus.
and the communities began i
ommending that the university
build a parking deck.
As a result,Getsinger said the
university began looking into the
possibility ot building deck.
"In the state of North Carolina

For a parking deck to be
cost effective, Getsinger said
it must have at least 1000
parking spaces. The univer-
sity looked into a parking
deck of 1800 spaces because
the Master Plan, issued in
142, predicted the univer-
sitv would need 2000 more
parking spaces between now
and the turn of the century,

about the average of what we sell
per year Getsinger said. "We
would get 550,000 from hourly
parking meters and then we
would have an annual student
fee of S64. That's on top of the
already 570 you are paying
"In scenario two, we increase
the decal by $160 annually ver-
sus the S50 increase, and we have
the same 550,000 from the park-
ing meters, but no student fee
increase. In other words, it would
be all on the back of the 10,000
people who buy parking decals
Getsinger said.
Basically, even though all
10,000 people who buy parking
decals will pay either 5184 a year
as in scenario 1 or 5230 a year as
in scenario 2, only 1,800 people
will actually be using the facility.
Getsinger said the university
would have to start charging
these prices for decals before con-
struction would actually start to
have enough money to satisfy a
bond requirement, which is
needed to fund the deck.
Getsinger said the issue more
strongly concerns the staff and
faculty than students because
they will still be on campus after
four years.
"Unlike faculty or staff, stu-
dents pass through this environ-
ment like I did. I was here for
four years Getsinger said. "The
I problems are still going to be
there for those who stay behind
However, Getsinger said the
ultimate decision to build a park-
ing deck would have to be made
by students and faculty and staff.
"The decision to build one is
not the decision that rests with
the administration Getsinger
said. "The administration would
be the ones to implement the de-
cision once it would be made.
The decision would he put be-
fore the students and the faculty
and staff
Getsinger said his research on
the parking deck was given last
spring to the student govern-
ment, the faculty senate, the
chancellor's staff and the counsel
of deans. He said most people
who received the information on
the parking deck did not realize
the cost.
"Everybody who has had a
brief on this said, 'Wow, we didn't
know it would cost this much
money. I didn't know it would
affect me this much personally.
I'm not in favor of that
Getsinger said.
Getsinger said the state of
North Carolina, since the 1970's,
has a mandate that all parking at
state facilities has to he paid for
by the users of the lots. The state
does not pay for parking lots at
state buildings.
While the university was look-
ing into building a parking deck,
Getsinger said it was comparing
the same 1800 spaces with more
surface parking.
"The cost per space is $1000
versus 59000 per space
Getsinger said. "The total cost of
thatproject would be SI,800,000
The parking decal would have
to be increased by S50 annually.
After reviewing the outcome
of the comparison, Getsinger said
the university plans to continue
developing surface parking ar-
eas until land contiguous to the
campus is used up completely.
"People that we have talked to
at other institutions � Chapel
Hill, Greensboro, Charlotte � all
these schools have parking
decks Getsinger said. "The one
consistent theme that comes out
of all of these people is that you
do not want to build a parking
deck unless you have absolutely
run out of land to build surface
parking. Parking decks are a
luxury, not a necessity. "
"They are things that are sta-
tus symbols, not necessarily pro-
viding the service that they are
designed to provide unless you
are land locked, which we aren't
right now
Recently, ECU has acquired
it and asphalt 150 spaces at
Ha-iington baseball field
Getsinger said. "It would also
give us the capability of con-
verting the playing fields be-
hind the north side of Ficklen
Stadium. It would also allow
us tocut Ficklen Drive through
from where it currently stops
over to Berkeley Boulevard,
which would allow us to get a
circular route for our bus traf-
fic and our shuttle buses from
Minges over to Christenbury
and back up to College Hill
However, some students
said they do not want to pay
increased fees whether it is for
a new parking deck or more
surface parking.
"Concerning the parking
situation, I believe that more
parking is indeed needed
said Tony Morace, a senior
English education major. "I do
not believe that those who will
not have the opportunity to
utilize the proposed parking,
should be required to pay for
it in higher parking fees. It is
enough that my student fees
have been bloated to pay for
an addition to Ficklin that will
not be open during my enroll-
ment. I would rather see an
increase in fees put towards
direct educational enhance-
Getsinger said all this plan-
ning is to eventually move
most parking away from the
core of campus by offering
lower decal prices to students
land located near Allied Health
on Charles Boulevard from the who park in perimeter lots and
Blount family. The university use the bus system
plans to change this area into in-
tramural fields and develop the
present intramural fields behind
Ficklin Stadium into more com-
muter parking lots.
"I would probably go with that
idea better than a parking deck
just because of the cost in the
long run, keeping it up, the secu-
rity and the bills for it said Col-
leen Larkin, a junior English edu-
cation major. "I think it would be
better to make more lots
Getsinger said in order to pay
for developing new parking lots 530 to 548 on the perimeter,
and mending old ones, the board We are trying to find all the
is going to be asked on Dec. 8 to
increase the decal fees by 528,
going from 570 to $98.
"The reason for the request for
increase in fees is to allow us to
go ahead and asphalt the fresh-
man lot at Allied Health to con-
vert the remainder of that field in
to freshman parking and asphalt
"By creating parking lots by
Allied Health and Ficklin and
Minges Getsinger said, "that
gives us the opportunity to
start allowing people to make
that adjustment. We're mak-
ing parking fees so attractive
out there that it would entice
people to give up parking here
and park out there and ride
the shuttle back and forth
"The recommended park-
ing increase is going from $70
to 598 for core parking and for

different things that would be
a reason why people can't park
on the perimeter and trying to
eliminate those
The freshman lot at Allied
Health will be finished by next
fall, while the other lots at
Ficklen and Harrington will
be ready in two years.
"We are positioning our-
selves financially to be able to
pay for these things and to bor-
row as little money as pos-
sible Getsinger said.
In the future the university
has plans to go to a zone style
of parking. Level A would be
at the core of campus and Level
B would be on the perimeter.
Students would pay the stan-
dard price for Level A while
students pay half the standard
price for Level B.
Getsinger said, however,
that students who want a park-
ing deck and want to pay the
cost should speak to the stu-
dent government and have
their wants voiced by their stu-
dent representatives. If the de-
mand is there, he said, the ad-
ministration will move for-
ward to building the deck.

Capital pinrishment
Two injustices were com-
- "mitted last Monday when serial
killer Jeffrey Dahmer was mur-
'dered in a Wisconsin prison.
The first was that Dahmer was
allowed to be killed while un-
Clljder the state's protection.
-u While many have stated
that this was a fitting end to a
te murderer's life, this was not jus-
o "rice, this was murder.
The bigger injustice, how-
ever, was that Dahmer was al-
� lowed to live in the first place.
If the state of Wisconsin
had the death penalty and had
used it in this case, then the
,Zfamilies of Dahmer's victims
L.Lwould have been spared the
���"painful memories this incident
�doubtlessly brought up. They
� also would have been spared
the victim status now accorded
3� Crime has now surpassed
the economy as the number one
concernof the American people.
"In response, most candidates in
this past election sounded as
� they were running for sheriff,
not Congress.
These candidates made
the usual responses about get-
, . ting tough on criminals. Real
toughness will require the ex-
pansion of the use of the death
- penalty, not such phony gim-
" micks as "three strikes and
' you're out or gun control.
The reason that the use of
the death penalty will have to
be expanded is simple. Murder,
V.Z as the most heinous crime, sets
- the upperbound of punishment
�-� in society.
If we leave the average
sentence for murder in our
M country at the present 25 years
to life (with actual time served
about 11 years), then the sen-
tences for rape, kidnapping, etc
must be proportionally lower.
For example, if the average
sentence for rape is raised to 20
years (which would mean about
eight actual years behind bars),
then as a society we are present-
ing a dangerous temptation to
rapists to kill their victims.
By killing his victim, a rap-
ist potentially adds only three
years to his sentence while si-
multaneously reducing the odds
of being captured. If, however,
the sentence for murder is execu-
tion, then a sentence of 20 years
or more for rape actually makes
Moreover, such tactics have
worked in the past, even without
wholesale executions. For ex-
ample, from 1930 to 1950, mur-
ders of all types in our country
ranged from 5,000 to 7,000 per
year. Executions in the same time
period ranged from 117 to 199.
Thus a murderer faced a 1 in 25
chance of being executed. Pres-
ently, however, the odds of actu-
ally being executed for commit-
ting a murder is about 1 in 625.
Not only were murders
more likely to face execution,
such a sentence was carried out
much more swiftly. For example,
on February 15, 1933, an anar-
chist attempted to kill President-
Elect Roosevelt in Chicago. He
instead killed Chicago Mayor
Anton Cermak. When Roosevelt
was inaugurated five weeks later,
the murderer had been tried, con-
victed and executed.
No crime policy can pre-
vent all murders, but there is at
least anecdotal evidence that
by Brian Hall
somecanbe. For example, many
retired police officers related
that when they arrested armed
robbers, frequently the robbers
themselves had either disabled
their guns or refused to load
When questioned, these
men stated that they did not
want to take the chance of shoot-
ing someone in the course of a
crime, for fear of the executioner.
Contrast such actions with
today's crimes when many
thieves shoot their victims for
no reason whatsoever.
The most common attack
on the death penalty is that it is
unfairly implemented and dis-
criminates against minorities.
This is true, though not in the
way most opponents believe.
Blacks, for example,
make up a larger percentage
of executed criminals than
their proportion in the gen-
eral population. When just
the population of convicted
murderers is looked at, how-
ever, one finds that white
murderers are more likely to
be executed that black mur-
Black lives are being un-
dervalued, but it is the lives
of black victims, not black
murderers. As a society we
need to be just as willing to
sentence a black on black
murderer to death as a white
on white murderer.
The only way to see that
justice is done in all cases is
to see that all first degree
murderers, regardless of race,
are sentenced to the only fit-
ting punishment for their
crime: death.
Is the spirit of Christmas authentic?
Christmas time is almost upon
us with holiday wishes and peace
on earth and good will towards
men. Tis' the season for increased
commercialization in retail stores
and out-of-work Joe's playing
Santa Claus at the mall. Just what
is all this seasonal festivity about?
Originally, Christmas started
out as a holiday devoted to
honoring the birth of Christianity's
founder, Jesus Christ. However,
over the course of time, Christmas
has been relegated to the same
status as Halloween or Easter. It is
just another chance for the greedy
bastards that control corporate
America to exploit people on an
important religious holiday.
Quite simply, Christmas has
nothing to do with jolly old Saint
Nicholas or receiving an expensive
gift under the tree on the morning
of Dec. 25. The holiday also has
nothing to do with sugar cookies,
Frosty the Snowman and
Christmas music being piped into
elevators and waiting rooms in
While I am not trying to negate
the images that people associate
with the season, I do feel that
people have attached a great deal
of superfluous symbolism to
Christmas , which has absolutely
no bearing on why the holiday is
celebrated in the first place. This is
not to say that there is one
expressed purpose for celebrating
the holiday, but that the initial
meaning behind various traditions
has become obscured.
Religion is obviously the
underlying reason the holiday's
being celebrated in the first place.
Dec.25 is designated as the birth of
Jesus Christ, although historically,
there is no evidence to suggest
that Christ was born on this precise
The facts concerning when
Christ was born are not the most
significant issue. What is at issue
are the reasons that motivate
people to celebrate a holiday in
honor of someone, who they honor
by doing everything contrary to
the teachings of that person.
Jesus did not say that people
should recreate the act of the Magi
By Joshua White
by giving exorbitant presents on
Christmas (but I somehow have
the feeling that if retail
merchandisers could sell
packages of frankincense and
gold they would.) He also did
not put emphasis on material
possessions, although this is the
form that people's "love" takes
on Christmas.
If anything is to be gained
from the holiday, then it is the
message of peace of love towards
all of humankind. Why this
attitude should only persist one
day out of 365 is questionable.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
On 29 November 1994, your paper printed an
article by Joshua White titled "Watch out, here come
the Republicans In this article Mr. White discusses
the infamous Newt Gingrich, the highly debated
school prayer issue and whether Republicans are
"illiterate or simply have a flagrant disregard for
the" Constitution.
I should say that I am a Christian Republican
who can read, and I hold the United States
Constitution close to my heart. The Constitution's
First Amendment reads in part: "Congress shall make
no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise thereof Mr. White made
his first mistake when he referred to this amendment
as "Article I " of the Constitution. Article I of the
Constitution establishes Congress' legislative powers.
His second mistake comes in his interpretation of
the word "establishment Establishment here refers
to the creation and enforcement of national religion.
Those in favor of school prayer are not working
to create a national religion, but instead allow
children to pray and worship God. If being a
Christian and worshipping God is so terrible, then
why don't we remove the phrase "one nation under
God" from the Pledge of Allegiance? Without God,
Mr. White, you, nor I, would exist! We must give
our children time to pray each day, at home, at
church, and at school. Mr. White, I hope you don't
end up in hell. We will be praying for you.

To the Editor:
I am writing you in concern over Joshua White's
article, " Watch out, here come the Republicans in
November 29, 1994, edition of The East Carolinian.
After reading this article, my primary response is:
Typical. In voicing his personal opinion, Mr. White
resorts to school yard insults and untrue stereotypes
against the Republican party. Referring to Newt
Gingrich as a "slimy worm-eating critter" and to Dr.
Seuss' "The Grinch" is childish and meaningless to
his argument.
He also misrepresented the Republican
standpoint about religion in school. He made it seem
that a typical scenario would be that every morning
at school everyone morning would be preached to in
STANDPOINT. The Republican's only point is that it
should not be illegal for prayer to occur in school.
That is the simplified version of course, but
nonetheless, their idea.
Mr. White also said that the "twenty-
something voters" were in for a shock when
they found out that the Republicans don't give
"jack-squat" about their interests. My only
comment to this is that I, as a "twenty-
something voter voted for whom I believed
would help America as a whole and not for my
own personal interests.
Due to the word limitation, I must end this
letter. Before signing off, however, I would
like to note that Mr White's stereotype of
Republicans as "conservative yuppies" is the
same as the stereotypical Democrat as a long
haired, hippie type, Communist pinko.

A Drop
in THE
Lifestyle Editor
"A Drop in the Bucket" is
just ivhat it claims to be: a
very tiny drop in the great
screaming bucket of American
media opinion. Take it as you
Christmas was originally a
pagan holiday. Not the cel-
ebration of the birth of Christ,
you understand, but the date,
December 25. It was a feast
holiday of some sort, when
our heathen ancestors got to-
gether to eat, drink, be merry
and carouse til dawn. It was
the mother of all parties, not
unlike downtown Greenville
on Halloween.
When the Christian church
spread north via the Holy Ro-
man Empe, the Christian
missionaries were shocked by
the pagan's behavior. They
knew they had an uphill battle
ahead of them if they were
going to convert these hedo-
nistic folk to the ways of the
Lord. So, they stepped in and
told the pagans that they
would no longer be celebrat-
ing the feast on December 25,
but the birth of Christ instead.
After a few pagan skulls
were cracked by the mission-
aries' Roman guards, some
bright pagan asked, "Can we
still have the orgy" The weary
missionaries begrudgingly
said yes, and so the pagans
agreed to celebrate this new
holiday of Christmas. Though
still pagans at heart, they were
now Christians by name, and
the soldiers more or less left
them alone (except at tax time).
As the years and genera-
tions passed, the former pa-
gans came to accept Christian-
ity and Christmas. The winter
feast was forgotten. Christian-
ity rode on the backs of ex-
panding empires, leading to
the discovery and coloniza-
tion of a new continent, and
ultimately to the founding of
Christmas has survived all
this time, a celebration now as
old as the winter feast it re-
placed. But now it's under at-
tack by another new-but-simi-
lar holiday called X-Mas. A
holiday of capitalism, X-Mas
celebrates merchandising. It
revels not in the joy of giving,
but the thrill of buying. It's a
shopping holiday with a name
that denotes its ultimate mean-
inglessness: X-Mas, the ge-
neric holiday.
And like our pagan ances-
tors, whose happy orgy was
set upon and slowly changed
by the Christian missionaries,
we've allowed the retail mis-
sionaries to change Christmas.
Whereas Christmas has a tra-
dition of 12-day celebration,
X-Mas is the ever-expanding
holiday; it get longer every
year. The first X-Mas decora-
tions of 1994 popped up at
Wal-Mart (an X-Mas holy

Trapped in Paradise without a clue
Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
Trapped in Paradise stars Nicho-
las Cage, Jon Lovitz, and Dana
Carvey as three wayward broth-
ers struggling to get out of the
small town of Paradise, Pennsyl-
vania after having robbed the
town's bank. Unfortunately for the
brothers, the people of Para-
dise are too friendly. Not only
do the gentle townspeople un-
knowingly care for the crimi-
nals, but they also manage to
make the brothers feel guilty
about their deed.
judging from the audience
reaction, most viewers enjoyed
themselves because laughter
could be heard every few min-
utes from the nearly packed
theater. Not only did the situa-
tion draw laughs, but all three
leads got to exercise their comic
skills with consistently funny
Trapped in Paradise begins
with Dave (Lovitz) and Alvin
(Carvey) Firpo being released
from prison on parole. During
the course of the exit interview
the audience learns that Dave
isa habitual liar (though Lovitz
never once says "yeah that's
the ticket") and Alvin is a klep-
tomaniac. The only brother not
in prison is Bill (Cage), the most
mature, and sanest, of the
After Bill and Alvin get re-
leased from jail they coerce Bill
into driving them into Para-
dise where, unknown to Bill,
they plan to rob a bank. Once
Bill sees the ease with which the
bank can be robbed, his brothers
cannily convince him to help rob
it. Once the three brothers manage
to obtain the bank's money, after a
hilariously lengthy ordeal in which
they have to bring all the people
from the diner across the street
into the bank, they have difficul-
ties leaving Paradise.
One of the reasons the Firpos
have trouble is that Alvin, the get-
away driver, takes them around in
a circle. "I just took four left turns,

relies on too many of the same

John Lovitz, Nicholas Cage and Dana Carvey stare blankly at the camera from their four-seater sled in the
new 20th Century Fox film Trapped in Paradise. The film screened last week at Hendrix Theatre as part
of a three-film sneak preview program. The next film in the program, Mixed Nuts, shows tonight at 8 p.m.
in an attempt to prove that he has
not taken his brothers in a circle.
Comic situations like that one
pop up throughout the film.
Trapped in Paradise is actually a
should have been, but that still
does not equate to a truly funny
film. The comedy is too broad to
really hit its mark. Most of the
scenes that evoke the most laugh-
ther help nor hurt his career, but
the film does show why Cage will
probably become a relatively big
star in Hollywood.
Lovitz and Carvey do more of
what they excel at doing. Lovitz
lies and Carvey combines his
George Bush impression with
Garth's attitude to form Alvin's
character. Both stars are funny
but neither has the screen pres-
ence of Cage.
The supporting cast of
Trapped in Paradise is a pleasant
surprise, especially Madchen
Amick (best known as
Shelly on Twin Peaks) who
plays Sarah Collins, the girl
that Bill Firpo falls for. John
Ashton, Donald Moffatand
Richard Jenkins add great
support. If the leads help
make the film funnier than
it should have been, then
the supporting cast makes
the film warmer. They give
the town of Paradise a hos-
pitable personality.
Trapped in Paradise pro-
vides enough laughs to
warrant a guarded recom-
mendation. When com-
pared to last year's holiday
film about a small village,
Grumpy Old Men, this new
film cannot compare. But
for two hours of laughter
with a bit of good cheer
thrown in, Trapped in Para-
dise will do quite nicely.
On a scale of one to 10,
Trapped in Paradise rates a

The Connells
New Boy
� Brilliant
I guess you could say that
Raleigh's Connells have made it
big. Since its release a year ago,
their latest CD, Ring, has sold over
150,000 copies. Their tour in sup-
port of the album has been quite
successful so far. They have played
200 gigs in the last 10 months, play-
ing with such acts as Neil Young,
Booker T. & The MGs, Blind Melon
and Catherine Wheel. In Septem-
ber of this year they started an-
other tour of the South with very
little rest from the last tour.
Their new EP, New Boy, was
designed to be given out at those
shows as a souvenir and will be in
stores soon after. It is a six song EP
with tracks from various sources.
The title track is off Ring, and there
are three unreleased songs (one of
which is a cover) and two live ra-
dio broadcasts. If they aren't care-
ful, they may find themselves
among all the other alternative-
gone-top-40 bands.
The title track from Ring was
reprised and featuresTheConnells
signature melody and the soft vo-
cals of MacMillian. It sounds like a
real nice love song, yet the lyrics
are about domination and submis-
There are two new tracks on the
disc, "Logan Street" and "Wonder
Why Once again, there is no mis-
take that this is The Connells; both
songs have that melancholy pop
sound that the band is known for.
They have the alternative sound,
yet they are not really abrasive,
which is a formula that may prove
to be successful on the popular
charts in the near future.
Then there is the one cover song
on the EP, "Living in the Past It is
a cover of a fairly well-known song
by Jethro Tull. They have been
playing this song in their live sets
during their recent tour and de-
cided to record it for this release. It
really is an excellent cover, and it's
not really that different from the
original. The vocals translate well
to Connell-ese, and the music
proves to be a little more mellow,
but still good. It seems particularly
strange to me that the sentiments
expressed in the song fit the hip-
pies it was addressed to originally
just as well as the new genera-
tional audience that will be listen-
ing to it now. "Now there's revolu-
tion, but they don't know what

Barkley the Dog (although that one
fact made Garbo a living legend in
my opinion). He is a superstar in
his own right, and the "Inflatable
Comedy Theatre" proves it.
Garbo and his partner, Daielma
Santos, kept their audience enter-
tained with over an hour of danc-
ing, juggling, mime and inflation!
Garbo began his show with a 'pre-
show warm up' which required an
audience volunteer. Unfortu-
nately, I was passed over for a
Shirley Temple look-a-like in the
front row. Garbo brought out nine
school pencil boxes and proceeded
to juggle three of them. Then, he
brought out three juggling clubs,
handed them to his lovely assis-
tant and balanced all nine boxes on
his chin! With the boxes still bal-
anced, he juggled the three clubs
to end the trick to thunderous ap
Garbo's juggling skills were not
allowed to rest. Throughout the
show, he juggled six rings, three
flaming torches and three huge
inflatable cubes. His skill amazed
the adults in the audience while
his physical comedy delighted the
children. But what impressed me
the most were his inventions.
Garbo's inflatables consisted of
gigantic cubes, a snowman, a
Christmas tree complete with
lights, an accordion, a complete
living room set including a televi-
sion and an "Airedale Dog" (which
looked suspiciously like Barkley,
butwho'scomplaining?). And let's
not forget Fred Zeppelin, The In-
flatable Man! With the aid of an
inflatable suit, Garbo turned him-
self and Santos into one -A nis
My favorite part of the show
happened right in the middle.
Garbo and Santos had inflat-
able kites attached to sticks that
they could swing around the
stage. Garbo took his and began
to make fun of a dance routine
Santos had done earlier in the
show. In retaliation, Santos
made fun of Garbo's juggling. I
loved this part because not only
was it hilarious, but it showed
the friendship between the two
performers. They were entirely
comfortable with each other on
the stage.
Another thing that impressed
me was the relationship be-

The East Carolinian
Pirates improve over '94 season
Aaron Wilson
Assistant Sports Editor
East Carolina has made vast
improvements as a team from last
year's 2-9 season to their present
record of 7-4 going in to their con-
test with Illinois in the St. Jude
Liberty Bowl on New Year's Eye.
Speculation about head coach
Stee Logan's job security has
ended, and now he is being ru-
mored for head coaching vacan-
cies in the college ranks and as an
assistant in the NFL.
The Pirates have more first
downs, rushing yards, passing
yards and total offense than their
opponents. Last year, they were
Dutgained in every single one of
iiese statistical categories.
ECU is on the positive end of
turnover margin as compared to
minus-20 a year ago. A major
weakness for the offense last year
was it's inability to control the
ball and run the clock to give the
defense a rest. This year time of
possession is up as well as scor-
ECU averages 27.2 points per
game and only allows 21.2. In last
season's 2-9 debacle the Pirates
were outscored 29.9 to 15.9. Even
the third quarter woes of a year
ago have been cured. ECU has
still been outscored, but only by
nine points � up from 94-22 last
Responsible for all of this suc-
cess is a game plan for this pro-
gram that started a few years ago.
The plan involved playing the
young talent that Logan and his
staff have been recruiting, as well
as playing with a more aggressive
style of play.
The ECU defensive and offen-
sive schemes are not much differ-
ent, but the added experience of a
year ago has made the execution
of the play calling that much bet-
A healthy Marcus Crandell at
quarterback has proved to be the
main difference for the Pirates.
Besides his accurate, strong
throwing arm Crandell's leader-
ship qualities really help out as
far as directing what is the eighth
youngest team in the country.
Crandell, a 6-foot, 200-pounder
from nearby Robersonville, NC,
has had quite a season and should
push for Sophomore Ail-Ameri-
can honors.
Crandell has completed 230 of
401 passing attempts (57.4 per-
cent) for 2,687 yards and 21 TD's.
He is currently ranked fourth in
school history in career passing
yardage passing Michael Ander-
son after the Memphis game. He
was named Liberty Bowl Alliance
Offensive Player of the Week
against Southern Miss, and Vir-
ginia Tech.
"Marcus has a great arm, is
quick and mobile and has great
instincts Steve Logan said. "He
also has the leadership abilities
and attitude to match

ECU's all-time leading rusher,
passing ECU Hall of Earner
Carlester Crumpler, Sr. this year.
Smith has 1,204 yards rushing and
9 TD's in 1994 and has shown an
added dimension to his game,
catching 35 passes for 306 yards
out of the backfield.
He was a pre-season candidate
for the Doak Walker Award and
has been named to HM All-Ameri-
can teams by the Football News,
Street&Smith's and the Sporting
News. Smith, although small at 5-
foot-6 and 180 pounds, is quick
(4.4 speed) and strong (380 pound
bench press). He
should be a pros-
pect for this year's
NFL draft.

Sand V-ball court opens on the Hill
(RS) � After a two-year wait,
College Hill's new sand volley-
ball court is open for use. This
court will replace the two courts
swept aside for the construction
of the Todd Dining Facility.
The S3,500 court is free to all
ECU students and staff for drop-

last addition to the hill tor some

About 100 players are ex-

On Thursday, many agents plan
to meet in Atlanta, possibly to
review the counterproposal that
players hope to make to the own-

The object of the meeting
will be to catch up everybody

we can develop a counteroffer

to meet with the players Tues-

his United League, which he
hopes will start playing in 1996.

they were going to put in place

If there is no settlement by Dec.
17, they are likely to implement
their own system, which would
also include the elimination of
salary arbitration.
"I'm not saying we're going
to come out of our meeting with

Judge Dalby Shirley gave all the

"I needed a fight said Bowe,
whose only fight since losing the titles
to Evander Holyfield in November
1993 was an aborted four-round no

Donald, though, turned the night
into more of a track meet than a
boxing match.
Donald bounced on the balls of his
feet almost the entire fight, throwing
punches only in short flurries before
either moving out of range again or
tying Bowe up on the inside.
