Around the state
(AP) - Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald.
a former Green Beret imprisoned
for the murders of his pregnant
wife and two daughters 25 years
ago, says a new book has given him
hope that he finally will be cleared.
MacDonald wants U.S. Attor-
ney General Janet Reno to appoint
a special prosecutor to review his
case based on evidence obtained
by the authors over the past nine
years.
The book describes alleged
bungling by investigators who first
responded to the crime scene and
documents physical evidence that
the authors say was withheld from
defense attorneys during
MacDonald's trial in 1979.
(AP) - Southern Baptists
need to recognize the hurt black
people feel before they can begin
to solve racial problems, says a vice
president of the 15 million-mem-
ber denomination.
Rev. Gary Frost of Young-
stown, Ohio spoke to the annual
conference of the Christian Life
Commission, the Southern Bap-
tists' wing that concentrates on
political and social matters. Frost
is black and a vice president of the
Southern Baptist Convention.
The Baptists' failure to recog-
nize that hurt has helped boost the
popularity of the Rev. Louis
Farrakhan, a popular black minis-
ter whom he called a purveyor of
;bitterness.
Around the nation
(AP) - Hundreds of guests,
some wearing borrowed doormen's
uniforms, fled a fancy midtown ho-
tel Wednesday after a series of
small fires filled the 54-story tower
with smoke. No one was seriously
hurt.
The fires, which were blamed
on an electrical malfunction, emp-
tied the New York Palace for
hours.
At least 54 people, including
26 firefighters, suffered minor in-
juries, primarily smoke inhalation,
officials said. Thirteen were taken
to hospitals.
Around the World
(AP) - Forget Piccadilly Cir-
cus, Bond Street and Marble Arch.
London subway riders may get off
at McDonald's, Prudential and
Harrods one day.
A plan to raise money for
London's subway calls for renam-
ing stations - among them some
of the city's most famous land-
marks - after corporate sponsors,
preferably those with a connection
to a particular stop.
It's an unusual alternative to
the ads that already plaster 270
stations. It's also a way for Lon-
don Underground, the company
that runs the public subway, to
cover the costs of modernizing the
"tube which 2.6 million people
ride every day.
But the plan may have prob-
lems.
London Underground officials
have an appointment at Harrods
on Friday to present their ideas.
But Harrods spokesman Michael
Cole said the store doesn't want
its name associated with the
Knightsbridge station in its
present state.
Former campus leader arrested
One-time ABLE
president removed
for trespassing
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
Just two months after seven Al-
pha Phi Alpha fraternity members
were suspended from ECU, their
president is in the spotlight once
again.
Demetrius Carter, 21, was ar-
rested for second-degree trespassing
in Fletcher Resident Hall early last
Thursday morning.
Carter, who did not return TEC's
phone calls, was removed without
force from the hall at 12:04 a.m. on
Feb. 23.
According to Dean of Students
Ronald Speier, Carter was found in
his girlfriend's room. The official
police incidentinvestigation report
showed the place of arrest as 616
Fletcher Hall.
Carter is no longer registered as
an ECU student, but resides in
Greenville. While a student, he was
active in the Student Government As-
sociation (SGA) and also served as
president of Allied Blacks for Lead-
ership and Equality (ABLE).
While Speier could not confirm
Carter's suspension, he did say the
cause of his removal from Fletcher
was due to disciplinary reasoning.
"He was not permitted on our
campus due to disciplinary reasons,
as such he was given a trespassing
warning and he violated that warn-
ing Speier said.
Fletcher Residence Hall Adviser
Brian Vetrano said he handled the
situation because he had no personal
relationship with Carter.
Vetrano did confirm that two
RAs in Fletcher were former pledges
in Carter's fraternity, prior to the
fraternity's disciplinary problems
which led to its breakup.
"I handled the situation because
I had nothing to do with it Vetrano
said. "To me, Carter did no harm.
Just for the fact that he had been
banned, he was arrested. He did no
harm in the hall, but it's policy to
call the police
Officer Brett Haley and two
other ECU police officers appre-
hended Carter for breaking North
Carolina statute 14-159.13.
"A person commits the offense
of second-degree trespass if without
authorization he enters or remains
on the premises of another.
"Subsection 1: After he has been
notified not to enter or remain
thereby the owner, by a person in
charge of the premises, by a lawful
occupant, or by another authorized
person: or Subsection 2. that are
posted, in a manner reasonably likely
to come to the attention of intrud-
ers, with notice not to enter the pre-
mises Haley said.
The second-degree trespassing is
a class-3 misdemeanor.
As an SGA member, Carter
served as the chairman of the Appro-
priations Committee. Secretary Millie
Murphrey confirmed that Carter is
no longer a member of SGA.
"I do know that he is not in
school right now, but as for his sus-
pension, I do not know Murphrey
said. "Any student who is not in good
standing with the university is not
allowed to serve on SGA
The police report said Carter
was held ir.der S300 bond at the Pitt
County Detention Center.
Athletic director bids adieu to ECU
Dave Pond
Sports Editor
On February 6, 1995, Dave Hart
Jr ECU director of athletics, was
named as the new athletic director of
Florida State University, and will be-
come the 10th AD in school history
on March 15.
Hart served at ECU since April
1983, when he was hired as assistant
AD for marketing. He
held the poisiton un-
til Feb. 1985, when he
became the associate
AD for external rela-
tions, en route to be-
ing named director of
athletics in November
of 1987.
During his tenure
as AD, Hart has vastly
improved the women's
athletics programs at
ECU, while expanding
the univeisity budget
and its studentath-
lete development pro-
gram.
He has also led the movement to
renovate all ECU athletic facilities, in-
cluding the recently finished Williams
Arena at Minges Coliseum.
Hart serves on numerous NCAA
and CAA conference committees, and
has penned nationally-distributed ar-
ticles for six different publications. He
is also a keynote speaker at many
NCAA and NACDA conventions, dat-
ing back to 1984.
Hart recently sat down with The
East Carolinian to talk about his fond
memories, and his extraordinary ac-
complishments at ECU.
TEC: What do you feel is the
most important thing that you have
accomplished during your tenure at
ECU?
DH: Well. I guess I'd rather I'd
say what I'm proudest of-1 don't know
if it's the most important or not, but I
think I'm proudest of our image in in-
tercollegiate athletics, which I think is
very positive among our peers.
I'm also proud of the fact that we
have tried to help our student athletes
become better people and not just bet-
ter players. I think academically, from
an integrity standpoint and from a com-
petition stand-
point we've en-
hanced our-
selves in all
those categories.
TEC: What
is important to
you to close the
ESPN deal be-
fore leaving?
DH: It really
was, and Florida
State was very
good about un-
derstanding my
need for some
time to thank a

lot of people and
to tie some loose ends together - that
being the most urgent one. in my mind.
It was a good feeling too, in our
final home men's game to see the place
packed and get a big win. That was
satisfying.
TEC: When you accepted the
Florida State job, how close was the
ESPN deal to becoming agreed on?
DH: We had been negotiating that
for about six weeks prior to (the FSU
announcement, and we were very
close. In fact, I had talked to ESPN
literally once from the airport in Talla-
hassee about bringing that to closure,
so I knew that it wouldn't be that far
down the road.
TEC: Your name had been men-
tioned previously with other AD jobs,
what was it about the Florida State
job then say, like the Maryland job,
that caused you to accept it.
DH: It was just a situation where
I had made a short list a few years ago,
and just told myself unless it was one
of the five or six universities on that
short list that I really wasn't even in-
terested in actually even talking with
anyone about a job, but that was on
the list and what intrigued me about
having those conversations.
I've never applied for any other
job during my tenure at East Carolina,
and I only say that because I think that
says a lot about some of the things I've
said before this. I had to, as anyone
does when opportunities are presented
to you, make a decision whether you
even want to pursue them or talk to
them.
1 didn't choose to talk to too many
of those in a serious fashion. Timing
had a lot to do with it The timing from
a family perspective was good, and the
timing professionally was good.
TEC: Were most of the schools on
the short list ACC schools?
DH: No but I'll tell you this, they
were all schools in the Southeast.
That's a personal thing. I enjoy the
Southeast but I was convinced that 1
would stay on the Eastern Seaboard.
Florida State was real high on that
short list
TEC: You have said many times
in the past that one of your primary
goals was to get us into a football or
all-sport conference. How do you feel
leaving and not having that goal ful-
filled?
DH: Well, I feel good about where
the total program is. I think, looking
back over my tenure as AD and the
goals that were put on paper, we have

Dear Student Body:
I want to formally express my personal gratitude to trie ECU students,
past and present, who made my tenure at ECU so very special. I want to
encourage you to continue your strong support of ECU athletics and to continue
to make personal and collective contributions to the growth and positive image
of this outstamSng University.
I feel very proud to have spent twelve years at ECU watching many,

Remember what East Carolina University did for you and, if you find yourself in
a position to do so, give something back.
I wish you all the very best academically, socially and in your present
and future careers.

Students head out for Spring Break

Assistant News Editor
ECU students are packing their
bags this week and heading north,
south, east and west to explore
America's great wide open for Spring
Break '95.
Advertisements for packages
ranging from Cancun to skiing in
Canada have bombarded The East
Carolinian for months now urging
students go on their vacation of a life-
time.
"Let me tell you, this is the first
time we've advertised down there and
we have gotten a tremendous re-
sponse said Christopher Bames of
Intercollegiate Activities in Fairfax,
Va.
The agency coordinates a ski trip
to Mt. Orford near Quebec, Canada.
Barnes said Intercollegiate activities
receives 60 to 100 applications a day
and at least 10 ECU students are
signed up to go, but getting there
could be a problem.
"If we have enough students
signed up at a school we can run a
bus from there, but ECU students
can drive or a lot of them drive to
Washington, D.C. to catch the brew
bus Bames said. Students can ride
their party-bus and watch movies
through the Canadian border, and
receive shuttle service to local bars
and town attractions including Sumo-
wrestling and mechanical bulls.
Despite some students' urge to
hang on to winter, the vast majority
are migrating south for a week in the
sun and on the sand.
"I'm going with my brother and
my father to Myrtle Beach because my
father's paying for it and it's free said
Regina Duncan, a senior.
Other students are traveling far-
ther south to America's Spring Break
hot spots.
"Mostly to Cancun, Panama City,
Key West and we've had some going
to Walt Disney World said Dale
Cockrell of At Your Services travel
agency in Greenville.
Cockrell said some students have
booked trips to go skiing but the ma-
jority are headed south.
"I'm going to West Palm Beach
said Jeremy McDonald, a sophomore.
"I'm going snorkling maybe play a
few rounds of golf
According to local travel agencies,
the Bahamas is a popular vacation
many students are opting for this year.
"I've booked nine students who
are going to Freeport said Lesia Irvin
of Four Corners Travel Agency.
Some students are headed west
to get a break from the normal vaca-
tion spots.
"I'm going camping at Hanging
Rock State Park N.C said Heather
Serb, a sophomore. "I'm going hiking,
I go any breaks that I can
And even farther west
"I'm going to Dallas to hang out
with family and old friends said Jen-
nifer Tedder, a junior. "I decided I
didn't need to do the Spring Break
get drunk, party-on-the-beach this
year
Students are probably traveling
as far as California, but some are not
so lucky. Many students failed to make
plans, lack funds or have other rea-
sons for going home instead of seek-
ing a break from the normal routine.
"I'm going home to get a job for
summer said Lena Gibbs. a senior.
"1 was planning to go to Myrtle, but
a job's got to come first. I need
money
Jobs will keep a great deal of stu-
dents in Greenville over break, but
not too many. Chris Dishman is an
employee at the Stop Shop down-
town. He said Spring Break is one of
the slowest times of the year besides
Christmas and the break between
second summer session and the fall
semester.
"It's going to be dead around
here Dishman said. He estimates
the convenient store loses between
60 to 75 percent of its business dur-
ing Spring Break.
Recreation services also planned
to offer a ski trip to Canaan Valley in
West Virginia, but the response did
not bring enough students to make
the trip possible.
"We just needed a little more
time to advertise said Steve Bobbit,
ECU'S Adventure Program director.
Bobbit said Spring Break is not the
only time students can get away from
Greenville. He said students should
take advantage of the variety of trips
recreation services offers throughout
the semester such as a backpacking
trip tc Shenandoah National Park
March 17 through the 19.
Packages ranging from $90 to
more than $500 are taking students
to places all over the country next
week. Some include the price of
meals, but often extras are left out
of initial prices.
SGA members rally at capital

Assistant News Editor
ECU'S Student Government As-
sociation (SGA) President Ian
Eastman urged members to rally to-
gether at North Carolina's State Capi-
tol Wednesday morning to protest
Governor Hunt's proposed tuition in-
crease, during Monday's SGA meet-
ing.
Seven students, complete with
ECU attire, left campus at 6:30
Wednesday morning and joined rep-
resentative from nine different North
Carolina public schools, Eastman said.
He estimated 60-75 students attended
the rally, and the numbers got atten-
tion.
"When you just walk in, you

expected us to show and be able to
talk about the proposed tuition in-
crease Eastman said. "By going
we've set a precedent for students

factual information by going to the

Eastman said SGA will continue
to discuss the fee increase proposals.
Friday, March 3 is the deadline
for all students to submit applications
to run for an SGA office for next year.
Elections will be held March 24.
Eastman stressed the importance
of a March 13 meeting where student
legislators would be able to debate fee
proposals for recreations services, the
transit system, fine arts funding board
and many more, for the first time.

Some students lucky enough to
find a two-hour parking space in resi-
dential neighborhoods around cam-
pus are returning to find their car has
been towed.
Although it is legal to park in the
residential two-hour parking spaces.
any vehicle left there for more than
two hours will be towed at the expense
of the owner.
"After the two-hour limit, the
vehicle must be removed for a mini-
mum of one hour said a spokesper-
son from the Greenville Police Depart-
ment. "You can't just move from one
parking space to another
"This is not something new. Ever
since residential parking has started
they have been ticketing cars and then
towing them. Usually we are a little
more lenient around the beginning of
the semester, but by this time of year
we are not
According to the police depart-
ment, the two-hour time limit begins
once the tire has been marked with
chalk. If the vehicle is not removed
within that time frame, a city park-
ing violation will be issued and the
parking officer will then call a tow-
ing company to have the vehicle re-
moved.
If the car is towed Monday
through Friday between the hours
of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m the towing fee is
approximately $40. If the vehicle is
towed after 5 p.m. or any hour dur-
ing the weekend, the towing fee in-
creases to approximately $50. Add
the $10 police administrative charge
and another $10 for the parking
ticket, and the price of a commuter
sticker might look better and better.
According to the Greenville po-
lice, 15 wrecker services are used.
With so many services used, the price
of the tow will vary.
"My car was towed for being
parked too close to a neighbor's
driveway, but it wasn't blocking it
said ECU student Kathleen Snyder.
it cost $100 to get the car out of
tow plus $10 for the ticket
Students already frustrated with
the campus parking situation are
finding the latest round of off-cam-
pus crackdowns equally frustrating.
"If there wasn't such limited
parking spaces right now, then stu-
dents wouldn't have to park in resi-
dential areas said elementary edu-
cation major Livia Ritch.
I think it's ridiculous that they
have to give you a ticket and tow your
car, they should either just ticket it;
or tow it
Students who live in a residen-
tial area and wish to park their car
on the street must obtain a permit A
in order to park there continuously.
This permit can be obtained by get-
ting written verification of their resi-
dence from their landlord.

While ECU students spent most of
last week finalizing their Spring Break
plans, the Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fra-
ternity spent their week collecting
canned food for a good cause.
A total of 144 cans were collected
from boxes that were put out at various
residence halls, sorority houses and in
front of The Student Store, to benefit
the Greenville chapter of the Salvation
Army.
"If people want to see things hap-
pen, then we all have to contribute said
TKE president Brian Marsicovetere.
"We originally wanted to help the
Greenville Community Shelter but when
we called them they told us they were all
filled, so that's when we decided to call
the Salvation Army he said.
And the Salvation Army was happy
to accept the donation. "During the
month of February, we helped 301
people, including families, single men and
women said Teresa O'Neal, family ser-
vices director for the Salvation Army.
"Any donations are appreciated she said.
Upon receiving the cans, the Salva-
tion Army stores them in their food pan-
try. When individuals or families come
in hungry, their application is taken or if
they are a returning recipient their files
are updated and a food box is prepared
for them.
The food boxes usually contain two
balanced meals, consisting mostly of a
cereal for breakfast and a lunch or din-
ner, which is comprised of a chicken
(which the Salvation Army provides),
canned vegetables and fruits.
The Salvation Army also accepts
donations in the form of clothing, furni-
ture and household items. "Those types
of things go into our thrift store O'Neal
said, which is located behind the admin-
istrative office on Dickinson Avenue.
In addition to proving these types
of aid. the Salvation Army also helps
"people get back on their feet" by pro-
viding he.p with rent and utilities for a
month, O'Neal said. Recipients must pro-
vide official documents to receive the aid
and "we usually work on an emergency
basis for those types of cases
Monetary donations are also ac-
cepted. "Anyone can donate anything,
anyday and anytime she said. There is
a drop box located outside the office
for use during the time the office is
closed.
In the meantime, the TKEs are hop-
ing to make this event an annual one.
"We used to do this in the past but
this is the first time we've done it in a
while Marsicovetere said.
"The Chi Omega sorority helped
us out a lot by donating a total of 65
cans, and we really thank them for that

for a Council of Student Government
Association (COSGA) conference to
improve ECU's student government.
Each member stood up and spoke
about what they learned while at the
conference.
"One major thing we focused on
was to build and negotiate with your
administrators Eastman said. "The
tuition payment plan that we installed
this year, out of 30 schools, that was
something that looked really good.
Another thing, is that we're the only
ones that have a voice on the board
of trustees
Dale Emery, SGA speaker said
that ECU ranks well above and well
below some of the other schools who
attended the conference.
"We sat and talked about prob-
lems I'd always bring up finances
said Michael Cames, SGA secretary.
"They were surprised we give student
loans
Cames said he attended an en-
tire seminar on E-mail and is planning
to implement a program for SGA to
receive suggestions, comments and
input through the Internet.
He also noted that the executive
council saved more than $1,000 from
last year's conference, and that the
executive council opted not to take
an annual trip to Florida.
The cut-off for annual appropria-
tions and budget requests for groups
and clubs is March 20.

Cames noted that SGA would be
developing a packet to inform groups
on funding procedures and processes
required to be approved by SGA.
While some members were away.
SGA continued to pass constitutions,
give appropriations and add new mem-
bers.
During the last two SGA meet-
ings, more than $2,000 was appropri-
ated to groups, and eight new mem-
bers took an oath to office. Fourteen
day and residence hall representatives
are still needed, said Lucy Goodwin,
chair of the Screenings and Appoint-
ments Committee.
Several members of SGA ques-
tioned fundraising efforts and avail-
able current funds of groups before
approving appropriations.
During Monday's meeting, SGA
member Justin Conrad questioned a
proposed appropriation for Sigma
Lambda. He said the group had al-
ready received funding from SGA. am)
wanted to know what happened to the

Cames pointed out that an orga-

the wish for funding throughout the
school year. An appropriation was
passed for $735. in addition to the
group's annual $1,200 appropriation.
Chris Arline proposed a resolu-

being appropriated to fulfill academic
requirements saying it is, "unethical
to allocate student fees for academic

extraordinary
accomplishments
have helped turn
ECU into a
much-respected
school. As an
administrator, a
fan and a friend,
ECU will miss
him dearly. We
wish him the
best, which is
exactly what he
has given this
university.
ECU has always been at a disadvantage in selecting the
best athletes in North Carolina and the country, because of
the prestige of our 'RTF schools (State, UNC and Duke). How-
ever, it has always been in the best interest of our former Ath-
letics Director Dave Hart Jr. to raise the popularity of our
school through our sports teams.
From the time he took office in December 1987 until he
accepted the athletics director job in Florida State this year.
Hart has always moved the ECU athletics program forward.
He has been involved in improving and renovating the ath-
letic facilities for the athletes: Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, Will-
iams Arena at Minges Coliseum, Harrington Field and the Ward
Sports Medicine Building.
Hart's involvement at the national level has helped ECU
become a school that is serious about its image. He stressed
the importance of a good education by structuring the Stu-
dent Development Program for all athletes. He has also par-
ticipated in several NCAA committees.
In fact, in January 1994, he was appointed to the presti-
gious NCAA Council. Hart's involvement in the NCAA Special
EventsPost Season Bowl Committee, chairing of the CAA
Marketing Committee, and service on the CAA Gender and
Equity Committee has made him a very recognizable leader in
athletics throughout the nation.
From the end of the '80s until now, ECU is a school on the
rise. Our first taste of popularity came when the 1991 Peach
Bowl team completed a miraculous season by overtaking State.
Most of the fame that ECU gathered can be attributed to the
work of Hart and his staff.
His experience and expertise in marketing has led ECU and
the Greenville community to great revenue gains.
Since leading the athletics department, Hart has implemented
several innovative campaigns including, the "Great Pirate Purple
Gold Pigskin Pig-Out Party" surrounding spring football and "Ain't
It Great to Tailgate which brought back the spirit of tailgating
and thousands of fans from Greenville and eastern North Caro-
lina to enjoy Pirate football.
Not only has football become a tremendous asset to ECU, but
other sports have experienced success. Both Pirate swim teams
continue to have near-perfect records; the baseball team has ap-
peared in the College Baseball World Series playoffs in 1990, '91,
and '93; the women's soccer program was added this fall to the
list of competing I-A sports- and the men s basketball team made
their first appearance in the NCAA tournament in 1993 after a
21-year absence.
Before his departure, many thought that Hart would want to
stick around to find out whether ECU would get into a confer-
ence. Well, he played out his role. He laid the foundation for our
athletics program to excel - he created a tradition, like that of
Carolina, Notre Dame or Alabama in sports. It should be in our
best interest to carry on that winning tradition on and off the
field and to preserve ECU as a college of the '90s and beyond.
Hart definitely was the man for the job. His insight and for-
ward thinking created a great atmosphere at ECU, and his depar-
ture to Tallahassee will leave a enormous space for the Selection
Committee to fill.
We at TEC would like to wish the best to Florida State's new
athletics director, and hope that he returns soon - on our oppos-
ing sideline (maybe in a conference game). The whole university
will miss him.

Who
Our nation's debt ballooned in
the 1980s. Presently 16 percent of
our tax dollars go toward interest pay-
ments on this national debt. Clearly
our government must control this
deficit spending. The question sim-
ply is who should pay for it
The new Republican Congress is
proposing massive cuts in health,
safety and environmental programs.
This new majority is pushing forward
with ending interest exemptions for
student loans. They are targeting
nutrition programs and Aid for Fami-
lies With Dependent Children. The
Republicans also explain that
deregulating large businesses not only
lowers the cost of government, but
lowers the cost of doing business as
well.
Adam Smith, the father of mod-
em capitalism, offered us some sage
advice on this topic in The Wealth of
Nations. The interest of the deal-
ers in any particular branch of trade
or manufacture is always in some re-
spect different from, and even oppo-
site to, that of the public. The pro-
posal of any new law which comes
from this order ought always to be
listened to with great precaution
This almost seems like an invita-
tion to examine this year's congres-
sional agenda. On one hand, the
G.O.R is cutting environmental and
safety regulations in the name of sav-
ing money. On the other, they are
continuing to subsidize logging opera-
tions on federal lands by large corpo-
rations. If waste is the standard for

Opinion Columnist
There is no
shortage of
surveys showing
voters feel
Washington
out of touch
is
cutting federal programs, then below
cost timber sales should be at the top
of the list. If cutting spending is the
primary goal, it seems curious to cut
regulation on big business and not
their subsidies.
Our nation must reduce the
amount of money it borrows. It is
somewhat perplexing to hear many in
the Republican leadership talking
about cutting the Capital Gains Tax.
This seems to clash with the official
party line that sacrifice is necessary
to reduce the deficit. This tax cut
would put more money in the hands
of those who own stocks and bonds.
It seems unfair that people who work
for a living must pay taxes on their
income, while those who reap money
on stocks and bonds would not "un-
der this G.O.P. proposal. There seems
to be more than just deficit reduction
going on here
Common Cause, an organization
that monitors lobbyist and campaign
finance reform, reported the opening
day for the 104th Congress was the
most expensive for lobbyists in United
States history. A report released ear-
lier this month showed corporate lob-
byist spent more on Capitol Hill in the-
past forty-five days than any othe�-
comparable period. While th
middle-class and poor are being hhj
by massive cutslarge business

Many Republican strategists are
still urging the embrace of "trickle-
down economics the idea that if we.
give rich people more money, it will
trickle down to the rest of us through
investment. This did not work in the
1980s. Middle income wages actually
decreased. Tax cuts for the rich only;

are dealing with now. The standard?
for Republican cuts appears not to be.
just deficit reduction, but also maxi
mizing corporate profits.
There is no shortage of surveys
showing voters feel Washington is ouf,

congressional majority should hee�
these numbers and distribute the
costs of deficit reduction fairly. Since
the middle class and poor are ex-
pected to take a hit, we can only an

Clinton fans, wake up!
Mid-term draws stress
As the semester rolls down, many
students rush to type papers, complete
projects and study for mid-term exams.
As the clock ticks away, every hour,
minute and second becomes moie valu-
able. The work load becomes stressful
as students try to complete assignments
for every class the night before the due
date.
Good rest is one way you can mini-
mize your stress level. Rest provides us
with the means of revitalizing ourselves
to meet the challenges of exam week.
Stress imposes a tremendous drain on
us and hastens fatigue. When you de-
cide to take a study break rest your body.
Do something that you enjoy doing. The
main purpose of rest is to reduce ten-
sion so that your body is able recover
from fatigue. It is not a good idea to
study for two hours straight You are
more likely to forget majority of the ma-
terial that you have studied. Why study
if you are going to forget a large amount
of the material? Sitting in a chair drink-
ing a coke (or beverage of your choice),
with your eyes closed, may make a dif-
ference for you. You will feel more re-
laxed and ready to start on your stud-
ies again. The real effectiveness of rest
periods depends largely on your ability
to rest Students under severe stress may
find this very hard to accomplish.
Sleep is another important element
'Lijmiij����ill i
Angela McCullers
Opinion Columnist
Many students
like to put things
off to the last
minute and
tasks pile up.
in minimizing stress. It is only during
this time that the body is given an op-
portunity to revitalize itself. The re-
peated loss of sleep over a period of
time can be dangerous. It is the loss of
sleep night after night that leads to
chronic fatigue. The effects of sleep loss
are likely to result in nervousness, irri-
tability, inability to concentrate, lowered
perseverance of effort and serious fa-
tigue.
You may need a form of relaxation
in order to relieve the stress of mid-
term exam week. Learning to relax is
a skill. It is a skill that very few stu-
dents practice. One of the first steps
in learning to relax is to experience
tension. A person has to be sensitive
to tensions that exist in his or her body.
This sensitivity can be accomplished
by voluntarily contracting a group of
muscles, first very strongly and then
less and less strongly. Controlled
breathing makes it easier to relax and
is most effective when it is done deeply
and slowly.
Time management is also impor-
tant Many students like to put things
off until the last minute, and as a con-
sequence, frustrations can build up as
tasks pile up. There is a need to sort
out those tasks in order of importance
and attack them one at a time. Manag-
ing time can alleviate procrastination,
which in itself can be a stress-causing
factor. Make out a time chart for every
class and determine how long you are
going to study for each one.
There is no way anyone alive will
avoid stress completely, but there are
things that can help us cope with it.
The effecfs of stress upon people are
real and important Stress disrupts per-
formance for most people. It has always
affected people, and its effects have
generally been bad. Stress not only af-
fects students, but people in all occu-
pations. It can affect our decision mak-
ing processes as well. If you think mid-
term exams are stressful wait until you
get into the real world. Good luck.
Last November's elections sent a
clear message: The nation has come
to realize that the Republican Party
is better prepared to lead America into
the next century. Still in the denial
phase, however, the Democrats are
trying to regroup. Comical is how silly
they look each time they try to de-
bunk future Republican plans.
Example: Soon after the GOP
proposed cutting funding to PBS, the
Democrats organized a press confer-
ence where a Democratic representa-
tive proudly displayed puppets of
Sesame Street characters Big Bird
and Ernie. Democrats then pro-
nounced to the world that the cruel
and heartless Republicans wanted to
take away Barnie et al from our chil-
dren - BOO HOO. The Dems failed
to mention the obvious fact that Big
Bird and crew are millionaires who do
not need taxpayer support to survive.
Never mind facts, say the libs, we want
emotions!
Proposed streamlining of govern-
ment through dropping federal con-
trol of school lunch programs has now
suddenly turned into the Republican
starvation of America's youth. Bleed-
ing heart limousine liberals were quick
to jump on that one. Allow me to say
that Republicans do not want to take
food out of school kids' mouths. The
GOP wants to save money and permit
the states to handle the food dispen-
sation.
Another recent development is
the plan to drop the federal mandate
Steven A. Hill
Opinion Columnist
Desist in my
efforts I shall not,
until that certain
professor is a
card-carrying
member of the
NRA
that requires employers to hire people
on the basis of skin color, not merit.
Of course the Democrats have sub-
jected us to their usual cacophony of
lies that says Republicans are racists,
which of course is not true.
Race quota advocates are the big-
ots. Race quotas assume that blacks
and other minorities do not have the
right stuff to make it in the competi-
tive marketplace. Not only is the lat-
ter insulting, it lends credence to
those who buy into theory that mi-
norities are genetically incapable of
achieving intellectual development.
Regretfully, most people who es-
pouse the benefits of race quotas do
not see the light until they have been
denied a job or promotion because
they were not the right color.
And finally there is Public Radio
that haven for liberal news commen
tators. Although they receive taxpay
ers money, every year they hound lis-
teners over the radio waves for more
handouts. Not only do they nearly
come to tears on the radio at this time,
commentators get downright pushy by-
demanding listeners have an obliga-
tion to send more free money. Each;
year I call them and remind them of
my donation came in the form of the
welfare check they received from'
Uncle Sam. In conclusion it is quite
obvious that the Democrats are not-
so adroit propagandists.
Wake up my liberal friends, the
party is over. No more will Ameri-
cans fall for your wishy-washy bleed-
ing heart sob stories. Stop your belly
aching and join the Grand Old Party.
It's time to end the rhetoric of vic-
timization and get to work. Make
America strong and vote Republican
in 1996.
Before ending this dose of hope,
I must acknowledge the information
that members of my cult following
have sent to me: "One liberal science
professor is going bonkers over my
articles Too the point of devoting
nearly an entire class session to my
journalistic prowess! My response to
the confused leftist: Libs are people 'J
too. I will continue to be a voice in
the wilderness for those leftist
trapped in the world of make believe.
Desist in my efforts I shall not until
that certain professor is a card-car-
rying member of the NRA and the
� GOP.

OMEGA QUEST
BY CHILDERS
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 16)
Looks like a fine day to wield some power. Put on
your power socks, your power shirt; eat a power
lunch. Tell someone special to jump and see what
happens. Of course, your next step is coercion.
Spring Break has a surprise in store, and, as usual,
timing is crucial.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Someone has tapped-danced all over your heart
with steel-tippedfcowlfcyl boots. Put together a
care package for yourgelf. Include: Tissues,
chocolate, pulp rioveTGrforge Dickel, and a small
wax effigy of your ondl-beloved (impaled in those
hard-to-reach places with little pins).
Aries (Mar 21- April 19)
You'll break out of that padded cell and back into
the absurd world. Humor will work for you (not
against you, as it has in the past). Avoid food with
bones in it this Spring Break, and you'll be
absolutely fine.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Today Taurus is charmed by an older individual. A
teacher becomes your mentor, Taurus, and it's all
you can do not to tape the lecture and swoon later.
You find that your studies become much more
interesting. Naturally, you give nothing away.
Gemini (May 21- June 21)
You'll accept no substitutes today. You'll be waiting
for the real thing. No Nutrasweet, no euphemisms,
no polite nods, no empty invitations. This may
mean a long wait�So, in the meantime, you may
find yourself graduating, settling down, raising a
family, and subscribing to Reader's Digest.
Cancer (June 22- July 22)
Retreat, retreat Give up, surrender, go home,
capitulate, wayjiihe white flag. Neither rhyme nor
reason is on ydttr side today. Shaking your fist at
the sky isn't going to do you any good. Humbling
yourself will not help. All sorts of nonsense plagues
you. Don't fight it. Succumb and wait for tomorrow.
Xy � v

Leo (July 23- Aug. 22)
Today, Leo is approached by people who are
"looking for an open mind Realize that this is never
good news. Let these people know who's "open-
minded" by threshing them aside as if they were
troublesome weeds.
Virgo (Aug. 25- Sept. 22)
You blowyour nose with gusto today. Virgo spends
the day walking around, adding special little
flourishes to tharnundane. When you scratch your
head, people are Impressed. You write Post-it notes
that people will treasure forever. You'll produce the
dizzying heights In cole slaw.
Libra (Sept. 23- Oct. 23)
Someone has tapped-danced all over your ego with
steel-tipped cowboy boots. Put together a care
package for yourself. Include: Lovely-sized mirror,
an ottoman, a strapping young stable hand,
peacock-feather fan, and a bunch of peeled,
seedless grapes.
Scorpio (Oct. 24- Nov. 21)
Today, Scorpio feels its time to start a vacation.
This makes your intuitive powers almost flawless.
You find clues in subliminal messages. This is also
a fine day to call some one's bluff without being in
any physical danger afterward.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21- Pec. 21)
You think like a cat today. A little mystique here,
some affection thereand certainly a little well-
deserved laziness is in your future. Bask. Roll on
your side, purr, stretch your claws. Anyone ruffling
your coat will be sorry.
Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 19)
You roll out the red carpet today, and someone
reciprocates. For once, "doing unto others" is
enlightening. When you least expect it, rewards are
threefold. Music plays a large part in tonight's
happenings. So doll up, baby!

Comic book romance
sings in Richardson
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
When they talk about comics for
adults, this is what they mean.
The Ballad of Doctor
Richardson, a "drawn novel" by Paul
Pope, is the kind of book all comics
fans should be pushing on their
friends. The problem with the more
mainstream "comics for adults" efforts
is they're all basically fantasy. If you're
not into sci-fi or horror, it's hard to
find a comic that's to your tastes.
That's understandable, I suppose;
those genres lend themselves rather
easily to comics, and the majority of
American comics have always been a
bit fantastic.
But not Doctor Richardson. No,
here Pope has crafted a romance. And
not a bosom-heaving, cliched Harle-
quin-type romance, either; these char-
acters are real, and there's not a Lance
or Bianca in the bunch.
Which is not to say there are no
exotics in the cast Doctor Richardson
offers a black Cajun jazz player called
King Kush (a stage name) and a mys-
terious night club owner whose face
is covered in bandages (ala The Invis-
ible Man.)
But these are only background
figures, used to paint the story in more
vibrant colors. The main characters
are all too real. The title character,
Dr. Richardson himself, is an art his-
tory professor uneasily approaching
middle age and bucking too many
trends in the publish-or-perish world
of academia. Intelligent and articulate,
Richardson is a rebel, taking chances
in what is essentially a bloodless pro-
fession.
Into his sad, quietly swashbuck-
ling life comes Noel, a former student
of Richardson's who quit school be-
cause "it was getting in the way of
learning After a chance encounter
on the subway, Noel invites
Richardson to dinner. He declines, but
Paul Pope has

heaving, cliched
Harlequin-type
romance, either.
changes his mind at the last minute,
leaping from the train just as it pulls
away from the platform.
This action defines Richardson's
character. He's a risk-taker who has
settled into a decidedly unrisky pro-
fession. His instincts have been dulled
by his life in academia; he takes ac-
tion when needed, but sometimes only
at the last minute. His attraction to
Noel gives him the reason he needs
to enter the real world and take real
risks.
And Noel herself is well-worth the
good doctor's attentions. A musician,
Noel hears music in her head that no
existing instrument can duplicate. To
compensate for these frustrated artis-
tic urges, she is in the process of cre-
ating her own instrument from the
remains of others. A free spirit (much
like Richardson) who sees music in
everything, Noel is well-known in the
club scene that her new paramour
trails her through for the rest of the
novel.
Here Richardson's risk-taking
comes to the fore. After dinner, he
initially decides to end the evening
and let Noel go off into the night.
Soon after she goes through the door,
however, he realizes she's left behind
her most prized possession: a print of
Caravaggio's painting "The Martyr-
dom of St. Paul" (whether N I did
this intentionally or not is left open
to the reader; a nicp touch on Pope's
part). Chasing after her, Richardson
follows Noel around the city and fi-
nally finds her with help from the
aforementioned King Kush, who in
the epilogue writes a song about
Richardson's quest called, appropri-
ately enough, "The Ballad of Doctor
Richardson
1 won't tell you what happens
next. For that, you'll have to read the
book.
Paul Pope has managed a rare
thing here. The Ballad of Doctor
Richardson is romantic without be-
ing schmaltzy, thematically rich with-
out being dry, and well-suited to the
comic book form without being filled
with space ships and spandex. It might
be a little hard to find, but this book
is well-worth the effort. As a comics
fan, I often despair that the medium
will never be allowed to grow up. But
with stuff like The Ballad of Doctor
Richardson, comics may prove to be
a viable adult medium yet.

"A Drop in the Bucket" is just
what it claims to be. a very tiny drop
in the great screaming bucket of
American media opinion. Take it as
you will.
"Here's a story about a man named
Brady
I've always thought that would
make a great opening line for a folk
ballad of some sort You know, "Mike
Brady was a steel-drivin' man" or some-
thing. But no. The above quote is, of
course, the opening line of a sitcom
theme that's sort of become like a folk
ballad, I suppose - the theme from The
Brady Bunch.
Remember the Bradys? The fam-
ily with sue kids and a vuguely disturb-
ing sexual tension? Sure you do. How
could you forget them with the inces-
sant reruns and the media blitz for their
new movie sweeping the globe? And
speaking of that particular cinematic
treat, I must admit that I've been one
of the Brady nay-sayers. I would rather
endure having my toenails removed
with a pair of tweezers, I've said, than
see the Brady movie.
But it hasn't always been that way.
When I was a kid, I was lost in Brady
lore. I loved The Brady Bunch. With
their sexless union and middle-class
capitalism, they were American to the
core. Jan's braces, Greg's Groovy Pad,
the kids' atrocious singing career, what-
ever adversity life threw at them, the
Bradys persevered.
And the Brady's traveled! Who can
forget those classic Brady vacation out-
ings? The Grand Canyon Adventure,
where Jim Bakkus stole the Brady
Wagon! The Exotic Hawaii Trek, where
the boys found the Evil Tiki Doll! Tour-
ism is the last gasp of the American
Frontier Spirit, and the Bradys were
the greatest tourists of their day.
Of course they were. They had to
be. The Brady Bunch represents the
ultimate in cheesy American family
sitcoms, and the Brady family is the
ultimate in cheesy American sitcom
families. The Cunninghams, the Cleav-
ers, the Huxtables, none of them had
anything on the Bradys as far as hap-
piness goes. Of course, when your big-
gest problems are that Marcia gets a
swelled head or that Peter's voice is
breaking, it's pretty easy to be happy.
Still, nobody handled their fictional
lives as well as the Bradys.
But there's something that I find
curious about the Brady's current suc-
cess. At 26,1 can just barely remember
watching The Brady Bunch in their
original run, Friday nights on ABC. 1
got the afternoon reruns when they
were as current as The Simpsons is
now. But a great majority of this cam-
pus was bom well after the Bradys
were off the air and probably only re-
members repeats seen 10 years after
the fact
What sinister power do the
Bradys hold over America? How have
they survived so long? Let's look at
the facts. The Brady Bunch endures
in a syndicated repeat market that's
seen both MASH and All in the
Family (Brady contemporaries in
their early seasons) fade away. There
are kids out there right now watching
Brady repeats in homes across
America, discovering the horrors of
Marcia's broken nose for the first time.
That's right, they're getting into the
heads of yet another generation! Like
it or not, the Bradys are here to stay.
But 1 ask again, why? Because
the Bradys were kind, they were lov-
ing, and most importantly, they were
happy. And that's something America
thinks it needs.
It's all a lie of course, a horrible,
hurtful lie that no real family could
ever hope to live up to. But it's com-
forting, to some, to think that we could
try. My eyes are open now, though,
and I neither have nor want the Brady
life. It's an impossible perfection that,
even if I could achieve it, would take
too much effort to maintain. Still, it's
fun to think back to the days when I
believed in the myth.
And that's the way we became

The first time 1 ever heard of
Schroeder, I automatically thought of
the Peanuts character with that same
name playing the piano. Well, this
Delaware band definitely does not fit
that image and proves so on their first
full length album, Moonboy.
The opening track, "Heavenly
gives the listener a small taste of their
sugary-sweet leaves-you-feeling-happy
style. The song is very upbeat and
singer Larry DiMaio uses his clear,
melodic and very audible voice to tell
us that "Heavenly, the right one's
come
"Sweeter Than You" is probabV
one of my favorites on this album be-
cause the first time I heard it, I got
this incredibly big smile on my face
that didn't go away for hours. Michael
Bolan's bass line is very catchy, and
Nick DiMaria's guitar isn't overly filled
with distortion. My favorite line in this
song has to be "Sugar screams for me
to taste her and I'm losing me
There's even a groovy little instrumen-
tal in the middle of the song for those
of you who can't stop dancing.
The song "Too Beautiful" is full
of distortion, which gives it an inter-
esting twist. It's very danceable, and
Larry's vocals and Brian Erskine's
drum beat pull the song together and
give it some order. The chorus on this

(CPS) Bristol, England, hardly
strikes one as the Mecca for European
animation. The scenic seaport about 100
miles from London, is known primarily,
if for anything, as a center of electronics
manufacturing. But the past few years
have seen an influx of adventurous young
animators who have rethought and ad-
vanced the art with such superior experi-
mental works as the Oscar-winning Crea-
tures Comforts, the video for Peter
Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" and The Se-
cret Adventures of Tom Thumb.
The latter, now playing around the
United States and seemingly destined to
become a cult classic is an eerie and
perverse post-punk fantasy where the
past meets the future. Mixing human ac-
tors with minutely detailed, stop-motion
latex puppets, the film's strange images
recall Eraserhead with bits of Brazil.
Pinocchio - even, in the bom-again fi-
nale. 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Billed as "a nursery crime of epic
proportions Tom is a tiny mutant child
accidentally bom to a poor couple in the
sleaziest part of town. Snatched by sinis-
ter government agents, who later mur-
der his mother, Tom is taken to a high-
tech lab filled with other mutant beasts.
He escapes with the help of one such
creature and finds other "little people"
such as himself living a medieval exist-
ence in a toxic dump. He's taken in by
Jack - as in Jack the Giant Killer - a
fearless and formidable 6-inch termina-
tor who dresses like Robin Hood and is
determined to fight back against the en-
croaching "giants
Despite his mistrust of the giants,
Jack helps Tom reunite with his grieving
father. But more tragedy follows, and
Tom must eventually return to the iab to
confront the energy source of the evil
scientists. Surreal and unsettling imag-
ery abound - a caged rat wearing high
heels, Santa Claus on a crucifix, insects
in every shot and crawling up walls. Tom
himself looks like a sad-eyed Mr.
Potatohead in a yellow jumper. To top it
off, the musical theme is by none other
than John Paul Jones, though not the
score you'd expect from a former mem-
ber of Led Zeppelin.
What's the inspiration for such
creepiness? Drugs? Nightmares? Too
many episodes of Land of the Giants
Actually, it was the BBC. says writer
directoreditor Dave Borthwick. His 60-
minute oddity began life as a 10-minute
pilot short for television. "The BBC has
made a commitment to expanding its
animation division he says. "They were
looking for a high-impact fairy tale, and
the 10-minute 'Tom' intrigued them
enough to put up the money for an ex-
panded feature
Borthwick. a longtime stop-motion
artist who cut his teeth animating Gl Joes
in his basement made Tom Thumb us-
ing a technique called "pixilation Tom,
Jack and other creature models are made
of latex skin and foam flesh over detailed
metal replicas of the human skeleton. The
human actors, meanwhile, are animated
frame-by-frame by staying in position
between takes before making incremen-
tal moves. The mind-bending result is that
the creatures seem more expressive and
lifelike than the robotic humans.

Tom Thumb took about 18 months
to shoot with one week of filming yield-
ing about one minute of footage. "The
work isn't easy for the actors he says.
"A movement or expression that lasts f K e
seconds on screen might take three hours
to shoot" To break up the monotony,
many of the technicians doubled as ac-
tors. "A lot of my friends and coworkers
are quite an odd-looking bunch
Borthwick laughs, "so they could be
gainfully employed in the film when they
weren't working behind the scenes. This
kept the energy level high, because it was
such a long shoot Even after a year and
a half, the last day of filming was as fresh
as the first" Borthwick, thrilled by the
critical and commercial response to his
maiden full-length feature, is gearing up
for a new project that promises to be
just as bizarre - and just as numbingly
slow to complete.
"We animators are a weird lot even
among filmmakers he acknowledges.
"People wonder why we do it put so
much time into moving puppets a frac-
tion at a time. But there's a pureness, if
you will, to this animatioa There's no
trick photography, no computerized im-
ages, no splicing. This animation is the
real thing - what you see on screen is
it"
song is particularly catchy: "Today
Now my head's in the stars and I look
around I won't turn away
"Waste of Time" is very different
from the rest of the songs on the al-
bum. It is very slow and dramatic
sounding with a rolling drum beat that
makes the song flow in an almost
poetic fashion. There are many other
guitar effects in the background that
give the song an almost eerie sound.
It also sounds like Larry's singing in
an echo chamber rather than in a re-
cording studio.

The song following this one, "Vi-
tamin Purple is very similar, but the
two songs don't run into the problem
of sounding just alike. In fact, Larry
commented at one of their live shows
that these were their "making love"
songs, which I found rather amusing.
Another one of my favorites off
Moonboy is "Colors This song is
much more straightforward and loses
some of the distortion. Don't get me
wrong, I love distortion as much as
everyone else does, but this song does
just as well without using it. The best

The East Carolinian
Richmond hosts CAAs
Brian Paiz
Staff Writer
Let March Madness begin!
The CAA tournament tips off Sat-
urday in Richmond Virginia with four
games slated. At noon EST, top-seeded
Old Dominion (17-11.12-2 in CAA) face
the eighth-seeded George Mason Patri-
ots (7-19. 2-12). ECU begins a quest to
capture their second CAA title in three
years when they take on the fifth-seeded
American Eagles (8-18,7-7). The evening
session begins at 7 p m when No 2 seed
UNC-Wilmington (16-10, 104) battles
Richmond (3-11,7-19), who will be play-
ing on their home court throughout the
tourney. The first round concludes at 9:30
p.m. as Lefty Drisell and his third-seeded
James Madison Dukes (14-12,9-5) try to
defend their CAA crown against six-seed
William and Mary63, 8-18). Here's a
look at Saturday's first-round matchups:
1 Old Dominion vs. 8 Geoige
Mason
The 12-2 conference mark in the
CAA is the best in school history for Old
Dominion since the 1982-83 season when
the Monarchs were a member of the Sun
Belt Conference. Old Dominion is led by
junior Petey Sessoms, who is averaging
22.1 ppg and 8.3 rpg, good enough for
second in the conference. The Monarchs
also lead the CAA in steals as a team,
averaging 10 a game. George Mason will
try to prolong what has been a disap-
pointing season for second-year coach
Paul Westhead's club. The only bright
spot for the Patriots has been the emer-
gence of sophomore Nate Langley. Lan-
gley leads the CAA in steals and is third
in scoring (19.4 ppg) as a rookie of the
year candidate. Old Dominion won both
regular season matches as they defeated
the Patriots 8833 in Fairfax and 94-70
at Old Dominion.
4 East Carolina vs. 5 Ameri-
can
Both teams come into the tourna-
ment on winning streaks. The Pirates
defeated Metro Conference champion
UNCCharlotte and in-state rival UNC
Wilmington convincingly in the last week.
Tne 18 wins for East Carolina is the most
wins since 1974-75, when the Pirates fin-
ished 19-9, and their fourth-seed is the
highest since they joined the CAA. ECU
Sophomore Tim Basham tangles with AU's Marko Krivokopic
during AU's 79-65 victory earlier this season in Greenville.
is led by senior Anton Gill, seventh in
the CAA in scoring (16.6 ppg) and fifth
in rebounding (7.3 rpg). Chuckie
Robinson has also played outstanding for
the Pirates this season. The senior from
Charleston S.C is averaging 15.3 ppg,
and leads the conference in field goal
percentage, at 62 percent
American won their last three
regular-season games, including a win
over James Madison. The main scoring
threat for the Eagles is senior forward
Christian AsL The Duke transfer from
Heidelberg, Germany is fourth in scor-
ing ir the CAA (184 ppg) and third in
rebounding (8.0 rpg). American has hit
a school record 219 three-pointers this
season and is averaging 8.4 per game
for a 44.9-percent accuracy. Another im-
portant player for the Eagles is junior
point guard Darryl Franklin who is aver-
aging 14.1 ppg and 5.3 assists per game.
ECU and American split this sea-
son with the Pirates winning 81-72 in
Washington D.C. and American claiming
a 7965 victory' in Greenville.
2 UNC Wilmington vs. 7 Rich-
mond
UNC-Wilmington won both meet-
ings in the regular season. The
Seahawks set a school record with 10
conference wins in the CAA. UNCW is
led by senior guard Chris Meighn. who
is averaging 14.2 ppg. First-year coach
Jerry Wainwright will try to lead the
Seahawks to their first-ever CAA cham-
pionship.
Coach Bill Dooley's Richmond
squad is led by senior A11CAA candi-
date Kass Weaver. The Olympia Fields,
Illinois native is sixth in the CAA in scor-
ing (18.0 ppg) and is the Spideis main
go-to guy. Freshman Daryl Oliver has
also been a bright spot for Richmond,
and is second in the league in three-
point shooting at 46 percent i
3 James Madison vs. 6 Will-
iam and Mary
Both teams come into the tour-
nament struggling. James Madison has
lost their last five and W &M has lost
four of their last five games. JMU will
attempt to successfully defend their CAA
crown. The Dukes are ied by Florida
transfer Louis Rowe, who is averaging
22.1 ppg, tops in the CAA. Rowe has
been named player of the week twice
this year. James Madison has also set a
single-season team record this season
with 140 blocked shots.
First year W&M coach Charlie
Woolum will try to get the Tribe past
the first round for the first time since
1988, when they defeated American 76-
75. The Tribe are led by Senior Kurt
Small and Junior David Cully. Cully
leads the CAA in blocked shots.

RBI's with 11. He has only struck out
once.while drawing seven walks.

He was the subject of a great deal
of recruiting attention after an outstand-
ing high school career. Lindsay earned
All-District honors for three consecutive
years while being selected Team MVP,
All-Tidewater and All-Region twice. His
senior year totals at Princess .Anne H.S.
saw him bat .430 with 25 runs batted
in, good enough for the All-State team.

chance to recruit me. I had already made
my decision to come here. I'm very
happy that 1 chose to come here, be-
cause it is a just a great baseball pro-
gram. Coach Overton really teaches the
game well and we have a good facility. I
feel very comfortable here too. as far as
school goes
Lindsay was scouted by major
league scouts but went undrafted be
cause of poor performances when the
scouts were in attendance.
"I was disappointed to not get
drafted, but I just didn't play well when
they were watching Lindsay said. "I
hit pretty well but I made some costly
errors and ! guess that dropped my
stock in their eyes
So far this year Lindsay has com-
mitted only one error and has a .957
fielding percentage. Head coach Gary
Overton describes Lindsay as a sure
fielder who will handle any chances he
can get to and make the throw to first
but doesn't have outstanding range.
Playing with returning starting short-
stop Chad Puckett has been very help-
ful to Lindsay's transition to college
baseball.
"It helps a lot" Lindsay said. "Chad
has a lot of experience and really holds
the infield together. He keeps me in-
volved about where to play a particular
hitter or how deep I should play. Play-
ing with him has helped me to step in

on drudgery, but not so for Pirate catcher
Travis Meyer.
"Baseball is fun Meyer said.
"Coach Overton makes it a lot of fun
Pirate head baseball coach Gary
Overton. who last month coached his
350th baseball victory' for the Pirates, is
one of the main reasons that Meyer trans-
ferred to ECU upon his graduation from
junior college Volunteer State.
"I met Coach Overton liked the
way he recruited me Meyer recalled. "He
didn't promise me anything, he was very
honest I had to win my position. If I
played well, I would be the catcher. I liked
that because it's just honesty
"It's a great program the
Westerville. Ohio native continued. "It's
nationally known. I talked to many
people, and they all had great things to
say about Coach Overton. That's what
made my decision to come here.
"He's helped me a lot with my catch
ing, at this level, because it's only the
second year I've ever been catching
Hey, wait a minute his second year

As Paul Harvey would say. that's
"the rest of the story
Meyer played marry of the infield
positions (including pitcher) during his
high school days at Westerville North-
em High, but had settled upon third base
for his freshman year at Ohio State.
Things were fine until the summer fol-
lowing that freshman year.
"That summer. 1 started catching
Meyer explained. "One of the catchers
on our summer team got hurt"
Meyer discovered that he liked his
new home behind the plate - and so did
professional scouts. It just so happened
that Travis' father. Rick Meyer, was a part-
time scout for the Cleveland Indians. His
boss. Bob Mayor, handled scouting for
the Indians for much of Ohio, and Mayor
happened to see Travis catch in one of
those summer-league games.
"Mayor watched me play, and told
me that's where I need to be playing
Meyer said.
Ohio State had a full lineup of catch-
ers, so Meyer transferred to Volunteer
State to get a chance at catching. The
Pioneers went on to be regional runners-
up that year, and Meyer himself was se-
lected to the all-region.
Upon graduation from Volunteer
State. Meyer had a number of schools
recruiting him: Tulane. St .Andrews (NO,
Akron. Toledo, Baylor, Aubum. Jackson-
ville (FL) - most of the SEC, for that
matter.
When it came to Meyer and ECU,
no one is sure who was recruiting whom.
"I think it was pretty, much a mu-
tual type of atmosphere Coach Overton

didn't know what type of a leadership
role he would encompass in our pro
gram Overton said. "That is the element
in which he has jumped forth, so tar
speak. :
"He's taken a strong leadership role, Z
which has helped not only our young 1
people, but our pitchers - our entire staff,
as well p�
One of the biggest challenges fac-
ing Meyer is learning the idiosyncrasiesr;
of his pitchers. Apparently, they're all�
different rt
"It's like a buffet of pitchers Meyer
said. "We don't have four guys that are
going to go out there and throw 94-mile
an-hour fastballs. We don't have any ofC-
that" -
"Jason Elmore's best pitch is his
fastball Meyer said. "Jason Mills' best
pitch is his split-finger. I just need to
leam what everybody's best pitch is inD
a certain situation.
"There are certain times in the
game - and thank God we haven't had
a close one yet - certain times in cer-
tain games that we rely on Coach for
some help, because he knows the pitch-
ers better than I do Meyer said. "Un-
til I leam each pitcher, and what they
do best it's going to be hard for me to
call it"
The Pirates have their first-ever sea-
son schedule of strictly Division-I teams,
and Meyer has a healthy optimism about
ECU's chances in the conference - and
in the NCAA.
"I think the possibilities range from
being a 'good' team to a 'great' team,
and anywhere in between Meyer said.
"It depends on how hard we work. We
have to go to practice every day. and
work until we can't work anymore
"That's what I like about playing
here. When we step on the field, we ex-
pect to win. If we don't then somebody
better beat us, cause we're not going
to give them the game
Meyer is a history education ma-
jor who would like to get a job teaching
in high school - and coaching, of course.
As one might expect though. Meyer cer-
tainly is hopeful for a shot at being
drafted into major league baseball, and
he feels that ECU is the one school that
will give him his best chance.
"I think I'm happier here than I
would have been anywhere else Meyer
said.

virtually accomplished all of
those short and long-term goals with
the exception of conference affiliation,
which I knew, and we've been in that
six-year chase, would be the toughest
to accomplish and probably the one
that would take the most time. I think
in lieu of that, we have bridged the
gap to give East Carolina the very best
opportunity of achieving that goal as
well as we go through the remainder
of this decade. I've always said that
that will happen, and I think that
when it does, it will happen for the
best when it does, meaning that we
will find a home that is very, very grati-
fying to our student athletes, faculty
students and fans. I think that it will
work out for the best
TEC: Are they're any other vi-
sions or goals that you didn 't get ac-
complished while here at ECU?
DH: Well, I can't wait to come
back in about three years and see the
completion of the facilities that are
on the board. Minges was a personal
priority of mine, the Chancellor knew
that, and people knew that, and it's
good to see Williams Arena in Minges
Coliseum in its completed form. But,
I think it's real important to get the
Pirate Club building done now, get
the Dowdy-Ficklen stadium expan-
sion finished and to redo Bunting

done a master facilities plan, and have
just completed that effort I look for-
ward to coming back and seeing all
those facility plans that were just
dreams years ago in place.
TEC: As the program at ECU
continues to grow, what do you kel
is the most important thing for your
replacement to do to continue the
university's su jess?
DH: Oh, I think the most impor-
tant thing will be to capitalize on the
momentum that
exists right now.
For the univer-
sity, as a whole,
and for the athlet-
ics department as
a whole, I think
that tho is a lot
of good things
going on, and I
think it's a good
time to come in
and capitalize on
the momentum.
TEC: What
have you been
doing since the
announcement
oftheFSUjob-
has it been busi-
ness as usual or
have you been
wrapping up
loose ends?
DH: I've had
a chance, and will
complete this task this weekend to get
in front of our studentathletes, our
staff, the trustees, the Chancellor's
staff77ie East Carolinian to express
my personal appreciation.
TEC: Has Dr. VanSant interim
AD been handling most of tie "ath-
letic director" duties?
DH: He has really begun that this
week, in earnest Now I'll go to the
CAA Tournament as will Dr. VanSant
this weekend in Richmond, and then
that will really kind of be it. I'll finish
up some loose ends, then the follow-
ing week on the 15th start down in
Tallahassee.
TEC: Once you arrive at FSU, do
you feel that there will be any back-
lash from the problems that they have
had in the recent past with sports
agents or past athletic directors?
DH: Well, I think that they are
ready for those wounds to heal. Now,
the university did an outstanding job
with the internal investigation into the
(sports agent incident, and the NCAA
will follow up that internal investiga-
tion. 1 think everyone's ready to get
through all that and put it behind
them.

� Dave Hart
TEC: Is there anything that you
plan to do in Tallahassee immedi-
ately upon your arrival?
DH: Well, I'll start by doing how
I exited here, and that is meeting with
a lot of groups that will be real impor-
tant to the university and to the de-
partment of Athletics. Obviously, it
will be an introductory and not an ap-
preciation-type meeting, but I've al-
ways felt real strongly that you need
a lot of different constituent groups
to have a successful program. You
need an open line of communication
with those groups so
they can better un-
derstand the goals,
philosophies and mis-
sions, so I'll spend a
lot of time doing that
There are some
things, as there will
be for the new per-
son here, that will
always be on the
front burner to take
care of, but I'll be
there by myself, in
terms of won't have

of time to get some
of that stuff attended
to.
TEC: Can we
plan on seeing
Florida State in
Dowdy-Ficklen Sta-
dium or Williams
Arena in the near fu-
ture?
DH: Well, I certainly, and I mean
this, any opportunity that I get and I
think I will have some to help East
Carolina in a somewhat minor or ma-
jor way, and I intend to do mat
TEC: How is you family han-
dling everything?
DH: Really well, it's been a real
tough move for everybody, but they're
handling it well. I think they're excited
about it. Our children, who really
aren't children in that sense anymore
aren't being uprooted. It might be dif-
ferent if we had seventh-graders or
even a sophomore in high school, but
our daughter is a senior a D.H. Conley,
so she'll finish. That has helped. It's
hard to do. I went through that as a
teenager. From that perspective they
are fine with the transition. They feel
strongly about Greenville because
they were raised here, but they're fine
with it. It's a tough move as it is for
me and my wife from the university.
TEC: Will your move to Florida
State affect your status on any of the
committees that you si on with the
NCAA? Obviously it will affect your
CAA committee status.
DH: Yes, it will affect them be-
cause the NCAA is structured by re-
gions and districts, so as you change
jobs, sometimes you go out of that
region or district, and that takes you
off of that committee. With the NCAA
only a year-and-a-half or two years
away from a new govern's model in
all likelihood, that's a blessing and a
curse. I have enjoyed those commit-
tees, so its a curse from the stand-
point that I would like to stay on all
of them. I'll stay on some of
themsome of them I'll move out of
district or region and won't be able
to. It's a blessing in the sense that
when you change jobs your focus is
so intently driven on the new job, and
it will give you a time to devote spe-
cifically to it. It will be about a half-
and-half. I've been asked recently to
serve by the NCAA as a consultant to
the StudentAthlete Advisory Com-
mittee nationally, and have agreed to
do that
TEC: Is it appropriate for you to
make recommendations as to who will
replace you here at ECU?
DH: 1 have had an opportunity to
visit with Richard Brown, who is the
chair, and talk about the process, not
so much on the candidates. He's asked
me for my opinion on the process it-
self, and I've told him and the Chan-
cellor as well that I am willing to do as
much or as little of that as they want
me to. It would be inappropriate for
me to get into the actual selection pro-
cess, but leading up to it I care about
East Carolina, so I want to see a good
person in this role. As much as I can
do to help, I want to do that
TEC: Have you had a particular
mentor throughout your career?
DH: My father has been that be-
cause he spent a lot of time in this pro-
fession. Kent Carr, who hired me here,
is certainly one. Then there are people,
as in any given profession, that you
admire and look up to, and certainly
there have been some of those - cur-
rently, ADs that have retired, that type
of thing.
TEC: Once you are settled in
Florida, what do you feel that your
favorite memories or recollections of
ECU will be?
DH: That's a hard one, because
there is so many. I've been asked that
before. I have a lot of different memo-
ries. People might immediately think
of memories of competition, but there
are a lot of memories in different cat-
egories that are too numerous to men-
tion. From a competition standpoint
obviously the Peach Bowl and the
march to the NCAA tournament by the
men's basketball team, but I have a lot
of memories that don't fall under the
competition standpoint
LINDSAY from page 8
first collegiate homerun, and describes
that as his greatest thrill so far in his
young career.
"Hitting for power is something that
I was known for in high school, and hope-
fully that shot will be the beginning of
something here Lindsay said. "Right
now I'm hitting the ball pretty good. I
feel like as the pitching improves the hit-
ters will improve with it At the begin-
ning of the season, they are a little ahead
of us, but now I am starting to wait for
my pitches more, and I feel more and
more comfortable at the plate. At first I
wasn't being selective enough and was
swinging at pitches out of the strike zone.
I talked to Coach Overton, and he told
me to cut my swing down and make good
contact with the ball
Lindsay has 11 hits in his 26 at-bats
with a 538 slugging percentage, scor-
ing 11 runs so far this year. However,
receiving accolades and honors are not
high among his list of priorities.
"I just want to help this team win
the CAA's and go to the regionals Lind-
say said. "If I hit for a good average with
power, that will help us a lot I feel like
we are off to a really good start and
should be ui good shape when we begin
conference play
The Pirates are currently 11-0 and
have a team batting average of 359 as
compared to their opponent's .170 aver-
age, outscoring opposing teams 119-17.
If Lindsay and his teammates continue
to play well, they should exceed pie-sea-
son predictions of them finishing fifth
in the conference standings.
