Eakin clarifies rumors of departure
Louisville position
stirs up emotions
on campus
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
Chancellor Richard R. Eakin yes-
terday confirmed that he is involved
in one formal search despite rumors
circulating campus that he is looking
at other institutions.
Since Eakin's candidacy for the
presidential position at the University
of Louisville was publicly announced
late Saturday, word has seeped
through campus that Eakin has been
visiting other schools. After TEC re-
ported that Eakin was in Ohio Mon-
day, some students questioned if
Eakin was visiting Bowling Green Uni-
versity, where he was employed for 23
years before coming to ECU. Eakin
confirmed that he was visiting Ohio,
but simply to judge a contest for an
area business.
Eakin said Bowling Green's final
search for its president consists of six
candidates, one of whom is also be-
ing considered for the position in
Louisville. Eakin said that candidate
is Betty Turner Asher. who is cur-
rently the president of the University
of North Dakota. He said he has no
involvement in the Bowling Green
Eakin said he feels it is only fair
to himself and to his family that he
look at the alternatives, such as the
University of Louisville. When the
search firm approached him about the
position at Louisville, he decided to
look further into the university.
"The more I learned about it, the
more interesting it became to me
so I proceeded to become a candidate
and to be interviewed Eakin said.
"On the basis of that interview, I have
been invited back for this second in-
Eakin will visit the University of
Louisville March 19-21.
Eakin has met with the search
committee at Louisville, but has not
met with any other university officials.
His second interview will give him the
opportunity to meet the campus.
"The second interview) also pro-
vides each of the candidates the
chance to ask questions and learn
more about the University of Louis-
ville and to form their own judgments
about how well they fit the need the
university has he said.
The committee plans to make its
decision by March 27, at which time
Donald Swain, the current president,
will retire.

university took on
too many projects,
rather than focus-
ing its efforts.

ing to be all things

thin and conse-
quently while we

have liked to have

He said a plan had to be developed
before the university could start priori-
"I believed it was important for us
to have that strategic planning process
that would allow us to focus our efforts
in so doing allow us to achieve excel-
lence in a few areas
Eakin said he feels each of these,
his primary goals, have been accom-
plished since his arrival.
"That goal (the strategic plan)
has been met and it is clear to me, and
I hope to others, that that goal has
yielded outcomes in terms of our be-
ing able to achieve $135 million worth
of capital projects. $55 million now in
gifts to the Shared Visions campaign
all of those things have flowed out
of this notion of our deciding how it is
that we wanted to achieve excellence
he said.
During the eight years Eakin has
been at ECU, the Shared Visions cam-
paign has developed and achieved great
success. Eakin said he is proud of the
"small part" which he played in the
campaign, but the success is a result
of a "collective effort by literally hun-
dreds of people Eakin said the Shared
Visions campaign has set the stage for
campaign drives of the future.
SGA debates fee increase
ECU heads back
to drawing board
Rejected bond
referendum means
more negotiations
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
In close to a 2-1 vote, Pitt County
residents voted Tuesday against the
$31.8 million bond referendum. Had
the bond passed, ECU would have had
the opportunity to purchase 20 acres
of land. Instead, university officials are
heading back to the bargaining table.
After a several year battle with
the county, both ECU and the county
agreed upon a deal where ECU would
buy the former Rose High property,
the current Eppes Middle School, for
$6 million. Additionally, the university
would give up its title to Wahl-Coates
Elementary School. What started out
as a $5 million deal, grew to $6 mil-
lion and now is generally nonexistent.
Chancellor Richard Eakin con-
firmed that the two parties involved
would once again begin the negotia-
tion process.
"We will certainly go to the
county commissioners and seek to
purchase the former Rose High
School under the arrangements we
had with them had the bond issue
passed Eakin said.
Prior to coming to the $6 million
bond agreement, university and
county officials had agreed upon a $5
million price tag. Because negotia-
tions took such a long time, the ini-
tial price eventually rose to $6 million.
"Because of how long it took it
turns out that agreement expired
Eakin said.
Eakin said that to his knowledge,
ECU is the only contender for the
property. At this point, the county
commissioners and school board will
determine if it is still feasible to sell
that property and if so for what price.
"That's clearly something they
need to consider and something I can't
participate in Eakin said.
Additionally, an approved bond
package would have improved Pitt
County schools, while also providing
funds to build four new schools. The
Daily Reflector reported that 9,590
voted against the bond, while 5,306
voted in its favor.

Bicycles welcome on campus

The ECU Campus Police have a
hidden agenda. Okay, it's not hidden,
but it is an agenda. The Campus Po-
lice, in conjunction with other depart-
ments including Facility Services, has
formed a committee headed by Sgt
Johnnie Umphlet to promote bicycle
safety and encourage bike riding on
The committee intends to submit
a list of recommendations concerning
bicycle traffic, safety, parking and stor-
age to the Parking and Traffic Com-
mittee by April 20.
One of the concerns for bike rid-
ers is where to ride. Bicycles are cur-
rently not supposed to be ridden on
the sidewalks, but most of the campus
streets are too narrow for cars to pass
a bicyclist which obstructs traffic.
"We are in the process of address-
ing that issue Umphlet said. "Facility
Services is working hard on long-range
goals to make sure all crosswalks are
properly marked and hopefully mak-
ing bike paths. The plan is for every-
thing to be brought up to DOT (De-
partment of Transportation) standards.
Possibly there will be signs to direct
bikers where they can and can't
go also
Part of encouraging
cycles on campus is dis-
couraging automobiles

as curbing the parking
According to Officer
Brian Powell, the best reason to ride a
bike to school is to avoid the hassle of
trying to find a parking space.
"Parking is difficult and will get
worse over the next year due to con-
struction and landscaping said Of-
ficer David Syth. "Students should
bring bikes when they come back next

The Campus Police is practicing
what they preach, too, by having four
full-time bicycle officers on campus.
These officers patrol just like the au-
tomobile units and have the same au-

tage of being able to access

members then had
to decide whether
a $3 or $5 increase
for the transit sys-
tem would best
benefit students.
Ryland Walters,

rector, addressed
the assembly about the proposals.
Walters said the proposals were based
on student requests, and that a $5
increase would allow bus routes to run
during night classes, on weekends and
a new route to the hospital. A third
commuter shuttle could also be added
to the fleet
Walters stressed the need to re-
cycle the seven buses currently over
10 years old, and said he is looking
into a plan for leasing buses begin-
ning next year.

larizing science and also in changing
the way introductory science courses
are taught said Dr. David Lawrence,
associate professor of geology and
task force member. "He doesn't think
that the average non-science major
needs a science course that's special-
ized. He thinks a non-science major
ought to be getting the sciences in
one great big integrated course
Hazen will be giving a speech on
"Achieving Science Literacy for All
Undergraduates" today from 11:0(1
a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Biology Mas-
ter Classroom, B-103 in the Howell
Science Comp'ex. The speech is free
and open to all students and faculty.
Lawrence said the university
formed the task force last year to find
a way to teach an integrated science
course for non-science majors. Hazen
has been a supporter of these sorts
of classes for a number of years, so
he was asked to come and talk and
advise the campus on the subject.
Later today. Hazen will be hold-
ing a workshop for registered faculty
and administrators on "A New Science
Curriculum for all Undergraduates"
at 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Lawrence said the
location of the workshop would prob-
ably be in Biology N-109.
This proposed integrated science
course could possibly begin in the fall
of 1996. and eventually, it could be
taken by students for their science re-
quirement. The task force is looking
into using Hazen's book. The Sci-
ences: An Integrated Approach for
the course.
However, Lawrence said that dur-
ing discussions on the course, each
science department has had a differ-
ent way that it wants the course
taught. Usually, each wanting to teach
the course from the perspective of its
own department. One reason for this
is that each department teaches its
introductory courses differently from
the others.
"So, you can see the problem
developing here Lawrence said. "Ev-
erybody from each separate science
has a point of view about how you
organize such a course and what is
important in such a course
"In the end. we realized that we
need to settle down on the integrated
way of teaching the course and then
we can start to decide what are the
important things from each science
to put in there
Lawrence said another factor the
task force is looking out for is to make
sure that the course will not become
just a repeat of high school general
Lawrence said he thinks Hazen
will be a good speaker for students,
both science and non-science majors
to hear.

science speakers we will have in here.

very jiood at explaining why everyone,

Also, Lawrence said Hazen has
spent a lot of time relating science to
other subjects such as in popular cul-
ture, art. music and history.
Hazen is a Robinson professor of

Tortoises show signs of evolution
Aaron Tuell
News Writer
The slow and steady tortoise
wins again, this time making evo-
lutionary history.
In a recent ECU study of tor-
toise genetics, new clues were re-
vealed about an important evolu-
tionary period dating back millions
of years. The gopher tortoise shows
evidence of a historical divergence
in its genealogy that coincides with
the probable sea level rise of the
Early Pleistocene Period.
For his master's thesis, gradu-
ate student Matt Osentoski in co-
operation with assistant biology
professor Dr. AC "Trip" Lamb
sampled DNA in gopher tortoises
in a search for genetic variations
within neighboring populations of
the same species across its habitual
"Osentoski deserves most of
the credit since he did most of the
work Lamb said.
In an interview with TEC ,
Lamb states that the gopher tortoise
(gopherus plyphemus) is one of
four tortoise species in existence
with a distinctly North American lin-
With a shell the size of an over-
inflated football, this particular spe-
cies is the only one in the South-
eastern United States. This some-
what common reptile has a north-
ern range of lower South Carolina,
primarily below the fall line in Geor-
gia, and a western expanse just into
southern Louisiana.
Lamb, an evolutionary biolo-
507 & 509 N. Orccn St, Greenville
Across the Bridge
gist, studied the mitochondria DNA
of populations of gopher tortoises
throughout this range, with most be-
ing in Florida. According to Lamb,
mitochondrial DNA (or mtDNA) has
particular significance in genealogy
studies for two main reasons.
"First, it tends to overall evolve
more rapidly than nuclear DNA. Sec-
ondly, it's transmitted maternally.
Both parents would contribute
nuclear DNA, but only the mother
would contribute mtDNA Lamb
Mitochondria are organelles in
the cytoplasm of living cells that,
along with other cellular constitu-
ents, are passed along in the eggs
of the mother.
The best analogy would be that
of the surname like Smith, for ex-
ample, in our society. Fathers pass
on their last names to their sons
who in turn do the same. That
makes it easy to trace family trees.
For the same basic reason, that is
how mtDNA leaves a record of lin-
eage, or evolutionary genealogy.
"By examining contemporary
genetic patterns, we're given clues
to evolutionary influences on the
species Lamb said.
Lamb and Osentoski's study re-
vealed that of the 55 different popu-
lations of gopher tortoises they
sampled, they found striking pat-
terns of genetic diversity within the
same species across it's geographi-
cal range.
"What we saw were there were
three major groups with respect to
mtDNA lineage Lamb said. There
is a Western assemblage, Eastern as-
semblage and a Mid-Florida assem-
blage. Each group represents dis-
tinct genetic variations apart from
the rest.
Florida consists of five highland
ridge land formations. For example,
the highland ridge in the
Apalachicola drainage area of
Florida separates the Eastern and
Western assemblages. The neighbor-
ing tortoises on either side of this
"East-West break" are genetically dif-
ferent, pointing to a branching of
the genetic tree at some point in the
tortoises' evolution.
At various times in history co-
inciding with glacial melting and sea
level rise. Florida was cut off and
these highland ridges became is-
lands. The tortoise populations were
isolated for some time and evolved
genetically different, even though
they were the same species. The
East-West break has been estimated
at 1.3 million years ago.
The striking significance of this
study is that it falls in congruence
with studies done on other species
in the region. The East-West break
has been demonstrated for no less
than 10 different species, including
whitetail deer, pocket gophers and
six species of fish. Most studies have
been done on aquatic species, and
the tortoise is a land dweller show-
ing the same evolutionary patterns
"Even though these events oc-
curred millions of years ago, there
is a genetic signature available for
us to detect Lamb said.
Because these animals are not
closely related at all, it shows that
their lineages were shaped in a com-
mon way, probably by a pronounced
geographic event.
The gopher tortoise receives
protection in every state and federal
protection in some areas. Lamb
feels this recent study will be a ben-
efit 1o the tortoises' conservation
and management.
This relatively common reptile
is noted in the South for its impres-
sive burrows which can stretch in
excess of 18 feet and be over nine-
feet-deep. The tortoise makes its
burrows wide enough so that it can
turn around at any point - some
being over one-foot-wide.
The environment which the tor-
toise habits can be best classified
as upland sandhills, characterized
by dry, well-drained soils and
scrubby oaks. Their burrows serve
three main functions: to protect the
gopher tortoise from predators, to
prevent dehydration and to provide
a comfortable clim?te.
"Where these things occur,
there are temperature extremes and
it's pretty dry and the tortoise bur-
row, as deep as it is, remains pretty
humid - and remains pretty comfort-
able temperature-wise year 'round
Lamb said.
Temperatures never fall below
50 degrees Fahrenheit or climb
above 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This
can be especially beneficial to the
cjld-blooded reptile whose body
temperature matches that of its sur-
roundings. In the South, summer
heat can be scorching and winters
can be freezing.

Most of Lamb's work involves
using molecular genetic techniques
to address questions of evolution-
ary biology. He and his major pro-
fessor. Dr. John Avise. whom he did
his Ph.D. under while at the Univer-
sity of Georgia, are largely respon-
sible for evidence suggesting that
tortoise mtDNA evolves more slowly
than other species. This was a prob-
lem Dr. Lamb compensated for in
his study by using techniques apart

Recently at the American Asso-
ciation for the Advancement of Sci-

organized by Dr. Avise on genetics
in conservation biology in the
United States, and there, Lamb pre-
sented his slow rate mtDNA research

Information taken
fmm St.Patrick's Day
by Dorothy Rhodes
Freeman and an
The luck of the Irish is upon us once again. Tomorrow is St.
Patrick's Day and students will undoubtedly rush out for the
festivities to partake in drinking green beer, eating green food
and living it up with a little green spirit.
TEC would once again like to take a moment out of the
festivities to remind everyone exactly why we celebrate St.
Patrick's Day. March 17 is a Christian holiday in commemora-
tion of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
Born a Roman in Britain, St Patrick was captured and sold
into slavery at lhe age of 16. He was taken to an island known
as Hibernia, which is now known as Ireland. It was during his
hours of solitude as a slave that he turned to religion.
SL Patrick worked as a shepherd in the fields and at times
would pray "through snow, through frost, through rain" until
he escaped and returned to Britain at the age of 22. Legend
says St Patrick walked 200 miles (with the faith that God was
guiding him) before he reached the sea to climb on a boat for
home. Safe in Britain, he vowed to convert Ireland to Christian-
St. Patrick's nomination to become a bishop was at first
rejected because of a sin he committed in his youth. When he
finally obtained the position of bishop, he set off for Ireland
and struggled to establish tolerance for the Christian faith.
St Patrick was able to convert several royal families; he
developed a clergy, established dioceses and held council fre-
quently. Although he is not known for his learning, there may
be something we could all learn from this saint.
St Patrick's writings have existed for more than 1,500 years.
The tales of this patron have been told throughout the genera-
tions since his death and several legends remain intact It was
St Patrick who supposedly drove the snakes out of Ireland;
legend states that the creatures followed him during his escape
and slithered into the sea when he got on the boat for Britain.
We are all aware that shamrocks are a solid foundation sur-
rounding the holiday, and that they bring good luck, but do
you know why? We'll tell you. During one of his lessons in
Ireland, St Patrick stressed the importance of the father, son
and holy ghost and how they all joined to make one God. People
questioned this asking why he said he worshipped one God
when he actually preached about three. Legend states that St
Patrick bent down and plucked a shamrock and held it out to
show the leaf. He compared the three sections of shamrock
that make up one leaf to God and the trinity. This legend is why
we wear green on St Patrick's Day.
The Irish now believe shamrocks protect us from evil spir-
its. Gr put shamrocks in their lover's shoe to ensure their
safe return, and shamrocks were brought to America to bring
luck to those leaving their homeland for an unknown world.
Before St. Patrick's conversion of Ireland, the natives of
the country were known to believe in several gods, worshipped
many spirits and practiced spells and magic. Over time, St.
Patrick did convert the country and the previous gods were
thought of less, they became smaller and were eventually re-
ferred to as the "wee ones Thus, the fairies and leprechauns
we have been taught about were originally derived from the
gods and spirits the Irish worshipped before St Patrick came
to town.

Baseball subs easy to find
Hey, all you high school has-been
baseball greats. Ever long to swing the
stick again? Still feel the need to hear
the roar of the crowd chanting your
name, seeing ycr name and your
stats in the paper? Well, now here's
your chance. It's time for the 1995
baseball season and we need you (or
anyone, for that matter.)
This year the Blue Jays saw over
600 players play in three camps and
only kept one. Of course they are go-
ing to play all 162 of their games on
the road if they want to keep him.

foreigers as replacements of workers
on strike. Anyone have a problem with
them hiring an all Canadian team to
play in Canada and an American and
Latino one to play in America?
Babe Ruth would be 100 years
old if he were still around today.

skin off some of the replacement

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am writing in response to the
February 28th article, "It seems right
to me which I strongly disagree with.
I do not appreciate being put into
a stereotype with "our generation I
make decisions on what I feel is right
for me, but those decisions come from
my background and how I have been
raised. I live my life by my religion, and
not all of us live as if there are no ab-
solutes. My values have been instilled
in me since I was young, and are a big
part of my life. To illustrate this, if I
wanted to have an abortion, I would
not follow through with it because my
religion strongly opposes this issue.
There are still people today with the
same views I have. I intend to follow
my parents will and always uphold the
"Dugar" name.
Furthermore, Michael Homer
said if we truly claim to me "moral
relativists then what the Nazis did
to the Jews would be right. Shane
Deike obviously believes today's soci-
ety condones the killings of millions
of Jews by the Nazis because they
thought it was ethical. I do not ex-
pect you would find many who would
agree. Therefore, all of today's soci-
ety does not go out and do something
because they feel it is right there are
still some of us with good ethical and
moral values.
In conclusion, my issue of right
and wrong comes from the basis of
my upbringing, not on the basis of
public approval.

Unfortunately, many ethnigroups
and minorities have been held back by
our government Now, the House Re-
publicans have found a new group to
assault America's children.
The Contract with America has pro-
visions in it seriously threatening their
well being; programs to help kids stay
away from drugs, important immuniza-
tions, and school lunches are all on the
chopping block.
In the name of "fiscal responsibil-
ity in the name of "balancing the bud-
get Republicans are taking food out
of the hands of needy children. The
school lunch program has worked since
1946, providing many children with
their primary source of nutrition.
I went to Daniels Middle School in
Raleigh. I remember some of the grins
on the kids' faces who were probably
getting their only square meal of the
day. Some school in Wake County have
over 45 of their students eating free
In New York City alone, there are
489,634 students getting free lunches
a year. Tuft's University Center esti-
mates several million kids won't be able
to eat under the new program, and en-
rollment will also be affected when those
who can't get a free lunch won't bother
going to school

cause this is a part of that sham they
call a contract However, this is a bipar-

think it is reprehensible that when if s

licans attack a group as defenseless as
our children.
The Republicans are doing this
under the guise of the infamous block
grant Block grants do not insure chil-
dren will be fed; they leave it up to the
state. Isn't it funny that tax breaks to
the wealthy aren't being cut? No, it's

being cut
Let's cut some of these ridiculous
tax breaks on the ultra-rich. Let's cut
some of this defense spending. Would

we need to increase defense spending?
Please don't tell me we're worry-
ing about the Russians. They can't even

Republican neglect towards middle class
Cutting Public TV is another bla-
tant attack on America's children. 90
of America's 70 million children have
regular exposure to at least one PBS ,
program. Programs like Sesame Street
and Mr. Roger's Neighborhood give -
kids their first exposure to numbers and
letters. They also help give kids a sense ,
of values; what it right and what is wrong.

To the Editor:
As long as abortions are per-
formed, obstacles will still continue
to exist. I believe that a woman
should not be able to have an abor-
tion unless she has been raped or
her own life is in danger. A child's
life is to precious and important to
waste. In Calvin Arrington's article,
he talks about the lack of abortion
clinics, pro-life demonstrators, and
"so-called" pro-lifers who murder
I honestly do not believe that
the lack of abortion clinics is a prob-
lem. If anything, I believe that there
should be fewer. If you want to abort
a child it should not be easy for you
to do. After all, you are destroying
someone's life.
By protesting, pro-life demon-
strators are only trying to open up
the eyes of those women who want
abortions. Their standing up for un-
born babies because no one else will.
And maybe by them protesting,
some woman will change her mind
any realize that her baby has just as
much right to live as she does.
On the other hand, it is also
wrong to murder doctors who per-
form abortions. No one should ever
take the law into their own hands.
Those type of people should not be
considered as good representatives
of pro-lifers. After all, pro-lifers only
want to promote life, not destroy it.
In conclusion, obstacles will al-
ways exist for women who want
abortions because it's morally
wrong. And as long as it continues,
pro-lifers will also continue to pro-
test against it.

m Finding humor and interest in the
mundane is a rare talent. Consider-
4ng that Scott Dickkers' nationally-
syndicated comic strip, "Jim's Jour-
nal is all about the mundane, it's too
bad he doesn't have that talent.
Nevertheless, Dikkers is success-
ful; the third collection of "Jim's Jour-
nal I Made Some Brownies and they
were pretty good, has just been re-
leased. Lord only knows why.
It's not that I don't get the point
of Dikkers' work; on the contrary, I
get it and want very much to like it.
"Jim's Journal" chronicles the life of
an ordinary guy (Jim) who lives an
ordinary life. He has friends, a cat, a

I habits of a serious depressive. He's

writes, "We

Here Dikkers
uses Jim's
blandness to
ironic effect.
Strips like this
are the ones
that work best;
Jim inadvert-
ently punctures
pomposity with
a bland style
that really
makes "Jim's Journal" shine. There
just needs to be more of them.
Artwise, "Jim's Journal" is also a
masterpiece of mediocrity. It looks like
Dikkers draws this thing with a
Sharpie felt marker or something. I
can just see the guy laboring over his
drawing board with one of those fat
black pens your mom used to write
your name on stuff when you went to
summer camp.
While crude art
can work in a
strip's favor, such
as in Matt
Groening's "Life
in Hell that's not
the case here.
Dikkers' boring
art simply makes
"Jim's Journal"
even less interest-
ing than it already
The theory
here is that there
is some kind of
charm in Dikkers'
bland observations. Unfortunately,
that theory seems to be in error.
Maybe this stuff would read better if
I was only seeing one strip a day, but
Made Some Brownies and they
were pretty good is page after page
of tedium.
Sean Connery looks better than
ever; he acts as well as he ever did,
and he exudes the confidence and
charisma that make him a huge star.
What Connery seems to be lacking
is an ability to choose scripts that
also utterly bland and makes utterly
bland observations about life. Or,
more accuratelv. he makes no obser-
vations at all. Each strip is a mini-en-
try in Jim's fictional journal, in which
he talks about stuff he did that day,
accompanied by illustrations.
Here's a typical example: "I got
up early today and was really tired. I
fed Mr. Peterson, took a shower, and
ate some cereal. But even then I was
still really tired. So I slept for a little
while longer
Not exactly scintillating stuff, but
that's the point. Whereas most comic
strips build up to a gag in the final
panel, in "Jim's Journal" there's no
such thing as a gag. Jim wouldn't
know humor if it came up and bit him
on the ass. His most striking observa-
tion about anything is, "It was pretty
good This guy makes Wendy's
owner pitchman Dave Thomas seem
Now, this could be a great idea
for a strip if the man behind it could
pull it off. "Jim's Journal" could be a
Showcase of quiet, deceptively simple
observations about life. But Dikkers'
work doesn't have the spark for that.
It's just as bland as Jim himself, and
it very seldom garners a response of
anything other than, "So what?"
Occasionally, though, there's a
glimpse of promise. While visiting

Dirty Looks
One Bad Leg

Just when you thought it was safe

1980s relic band Dirty Looks have
One Bad Leg that they probably
should have stayed off of this time
around. Don't get me wrong here; I
love 80s music, but sometimes it's
better to just let things fade away into
the land of things forgotten. Dirty
Looks most recent effort One Bad
Leg, is one of those times.
Listening to the whole CD is a
complete waste, as every song sounds
exactly the same. The "high voltage,
high octane, street survivor" sound
of the entire album is a mask for a
vicious assault on the ears, an assault
from which even the most dedicated
rockers should be spared. In fact the
crime rate would drop considerably if
prisoners were forced to listen to this
disc as punishment rather than face
the electric chair.
Take the lyrics for instance. The
title song boasts "I've got one bad leg
I just got laid" repeatedly, and the
song "Hello It's Me" is nothing but a
cheesy revenge song. "Loveless" is
about "feeling no emotion" and a
bunch of indecipherable gibberish

Connery's latest film, Just
Cause, proves one more in a string
of unpopular (both critically and com-
mercially) films. On the heels of Medi-
cine Man, Rising Sun and A Good
Man in Africa, Connery's latest film
suggests that he needs to read his
scripts a bit more carefully before
signing on the dotted line.
Just Cause opens with two po-
lice officers (one black, one white)
beating a confession from a young
black man (Blair Underwood). One
of the police officers, Tanny Brown
(Laurence Fishbume). puts a single
bullet in the chamber of his pistol,
spins the chamber, then puts the gun
in the prisoner's mouth and pulls the
trigger. The gun clicks on an empty
cylinder, and the prisoner confesses
to raping and murdering a young girl.
Eight years later a Harvard law
school professor named Paul
Armstrong (Sean Connery) is ap-
proached by the prisoner's grand-
mother, who pleads for Armstrong to
come with her to Florida to clear the
name of her grandson. The young
man has been sentenced to die in the
electric chair, even though all evi-
dence suggests that he is innocent.
Armstrong, a vocal opponent of the
death penalty, cannot resist the of-
fer to help an innocent man. Though
Armstrong is unsure at first, his wife
(Kate Capshaw) convinces him to
help the man.
Armstrong has not practiced law
for 25 years, but his legal acumen
remains. His sharp mental skills ap-
pear any time he interviews a witness
from the trial, or a lawyer in a small
town, or any of the police officers
involved with the case. Armstrong
unravels the pieces of the mystery-
only to find even more mystery in
what he uncovers.
Armstrong's investigation leads
him to encounter a psychopathic pris-
oner (Ed Harris, in the most ener-
getically overplayed role in the film)
who claims to have committed the
rape and murder of the little girl.
Fashioned after Hannibal Lecter,
Harris' psycho embodies evil.
Just Cause has the elements of
a workable thriller but none of the
pieces ever fit together. Unlike Lecter
in Silence of the Lambs, the psycho
in Just Cause serves only as an in-
teresting diversion. The director,
Arne Glimcher. lacks the visual pa-
nache of Jonathan Demme (who di-
rected Silence of the Lambs).
Glimcher keeps Harris' psycho as a
one-dimensional character who
spouts biblical verses but lacks any

Dana Delany bucks Hollywood
system in Choices of the Heart
NEW YORK (AP) - "Do you
agree that the public adores you?"
Dana Delany gently demurs.
China Beach was never a huge hit
she notes, "and it went off the air
almost four years ago
"Adores you not just in connec-
tion with that show
"Even now?
"Sure 1 insist, thinking how
adorable she looks right now in her
sweater, tartan miniskirt and black
tights. "I don't think I and our
waiter are the only ones who feel
this way
�I don't
know says Dana
Delany. "God. you
embarrass me
I savor the mo-
ment as much as
any happily mar-
ried man should,
then manage to re-
ply. "I'm glad. "
During its
three-year run,
China Beach
treated viewers
who discovered it
to Delany, starring
as a nurse in this Vietnam War-era
drama set near the big U.S. base at
Da Nang.
As Nurse McMurphy. Delany ra-
diated grit, smarts, passion. And no
matter how glamourless her military
duds and the blood she was often
up to her elbows in, she was as
lovely and sexy as all getout.
China Beach might have been
the launching pad for Delany as a
major film or TV star.
Yet it wasn't. Maybe that's be-
cause she was unwilling to follow
up McMurphy with the succession
of women-as-victim and women-as-
bimbo roles snapped up by actresses
bucking for Hollywood's A-list.
Or maybe that's because Delany
is a stop-and-smell-the-flowers type
who would just as soon take a vaca-
tion as take a meeting, who would
just as soon discuss Creek architec-
ture with a reporter than rattle on
about her current acting project.
Now that it came up, let's don't
forget to mention that a current act-
ing project is Choices of the Heart:
The Margaret Sanger Story, star-
ring Delany as a woman who
changed the course of women every-
It also features veteran actor
Rod Steiger and
Henry Czerny,
who appeared in
the film Clear
and Present Dan-
ger and was re-
cently seen on
A&E starring in
The Boys of St.
The founder
of Planned Par-
enthood, Marga-
ret Sanger was a
nurse, wife and
mother in World
War l-era America who suffered pub-
lic scorn and even jail time for the
sake of bringing women access to
birth control information.
She recently appeared on a list
of this century's 10 most influential
women, hers joining such towering
names as Eleanor Roosevelt,
Katharine Hepburn, Georgia
O'Keeffe and Susan B. Anthony.
So how come Sanger isn't com-
parably well-known?
"Even though she had an ego
and a drive, she cared more about
helping women than calling atten-
tion to herself Delany offers. "Be-
sides, birth-control was a radically
new idea, and a lot of people tried
"Besides, birth-
control was a radi-
cally new idea,
and a lot of people

to condemn her for it. She got
pushed back into history
Even in the current day. little
has been settled on that score. Just
consider that a Cincinnati Planned
Parenthood clinic that happened to
bear Sanger's name was firebombed
in the midSOs by an anti-abortion
The as-yet-unresolved debate
and pain surrounding birth control
is reason enough to watch Choices.
Delany fans who venture to New
York City during the next few
months can see her on Broadway in
Translations, a new play by the dis-
tinguished Irish playwright Brian
Friel and co-starring Brian Dennehy.

Recent medical studies report
that triglycerides can contribute to
blockage of the blood vessels which
supply your heart. Blocked blood
vessels can lead to heart attacks.
Triglycerides are a normal form
of fat and are carried in your blood
to feed your body tissues. However,
if you eat too much fat, your triglyc-
eride levels will be higher than nor-
mal and your risk of heart disease
will be greater. Triglycerides can
also be increased by drinking too
much alcohol and eating too much
starchy food and too many sweets.
Patients with diabetes, high
blood pressure or high cholesterol
levels, and overweight patients have
a higher risk of heart disease and
should have their blood triglyceride
levels checked by their doctor.

Female doctors found
more diligent in study
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A new study
suggests patients of female doctors
are screened more aggressively for
some diseases, including cervical
and breast cancer, than patients of
male doctors.
The study looked at how doc-
tors screened 1.850 North Carolina
patients for cervical cancer, breast
cancer and high cholesterol over a
six-month period. It was published
in this month's Journal of General
Internal Medicine.

who saw women physicians were sig-
nificantly more likely to get Pap
smears, cholesterol screening tests
and in some age groups,
mammograms said Dr. Matthew
Kreuter, a Saint Louis University re-
searcher who led the study.
Researchers found that patients
of female physicians were 47 percent
more likely to get a Pap test for cer-
vical cancer and 56 percent more
likely to get a cholesterol test.
For breast cancer screening, pa-
tients 35 to 39 years old were much
more likely to receive a mammogram
from a female doctor. No differences
were found among patients 40 and
"The conclusion you draw is the
difference really has something to
do with the difference between how
men and women physicians practice
prevention Kreuter said.
The study didn't determine
whether the doctor's gender affects
screening for other diseases, Kreuter
said. "You would expect that it prob-
ably would he said.
Dr. Nicole Lurie of Minneapo-
lis, researcher for one of the firsts
studies on physician gender screen-
ing differences last year, said
Kreuter's study doesn't explain if
tougher screening reflects the
patient's attitude or the doctor's.
"Is it because the women who
are seeing women doctors are them-
selves different? Or is it that the
women doctors have a different pre-
vention agenda than the men doc-
tors?" she said.
Kreuter sought to eliminate the
patient's influence by giving each a
questionnaire before the first visit.
The study found that even after mea-
suring and adjusting for patient
characteristics, female physicians
were more aggressive in pursuing
"Other studies have found that
women physicians spend more time
with patients, ask more questions,
provide more information, that they
may be more sensitive to the
patient's feelings Kreuter said.

talked to think there may be another
"It sounds almost stereotypical,
but maybe it's something about the
maternal instinct he said.
Kreuter said the study
shouldn't be taken as an indictment
of male doctors.
"I think maybe the message is
more directed to patients he said.
"They ought to choose a physician,
male or female, who will consider
prevention of disease and promotion
of healthy lifestyles and habits

1 sat and waited for the lyrics to
get better, but they never did. The
musical quality of One Bad Leg is
about as bad as its lyrical content, if
that's even possible. The guitars are
powerful, but most of the riffs are sto-
len from either ACDC or classic
Aerosmith. The drumbeats are ge-
neric, the bassline dull.
And lead singer Henrick
Ostergaard sounds similar to the lead
singer of AC DC but lacks the one
essential ingredient that ACDC has
- talent. The similarities between
Dirty Looks and AC DC and
Aerosmith exist for good reason; pro-
ducer David Krebs used to manage
both those classic bands. He seems
to have tried to model Dirty Looks
after them, and it just does not work.
Maybe if Dirty Looks looked
around and found their own sound
they would not be so bad. Then again,
maybe they would still suck. Don't

CAUSE from page 7
only in Harris' character) rests on
John Katzenbach's shoulders since
he wrote the novel upon which Just
Cause was based. Not having read
Katzenbach's novel. 1 cannot be sure
how faithful the film adaptation is,
but if he filmmakers could get no
further depth from the book than
what they put on the screen, then
Katzenbach did not succeed in con-
veying the complexities of the story.
By the time Just Cause ends, all
that has come before seems to mean
little. Without giving away the end-
ing, which most viewers will figure
out long before it finally arrives, the
story contradicts itself and gives no
evidence that double dealings may be
occurring. Had some doubt lingered
in Armstrong's mind, the film may
have made more of an impact.
Glimcher tries to build tension,
but he keeps sabotaging himself with
inconsistencies. Armstrong's wife
comes to play an important part in
the story, but her role in the film is
still unclear. How, for instance, did
she and Paul even meet? And why is
she 20 years younger than him? And
how did her past affect her?
Most everything in Just Cause
plays like overblown melodrama. The
complex issues the film tries to tackle
at the beginning, like racial prejudice,
police brutality and the concept of
justice in a small town, all evaporate
under the glare of the contrived sus-
pense. None of the ideas are followed
up, and many are even subject to
questioning because the ending of
the film may leave one wondering
whether the filmmakers condone
brutality and racism.
The soggy script should have
warned Connery that he needed to
steer clear of this role. Instead, he
tries to bring some prestige to the
film. 1 can find no just cause to rec-
ommend Just Cause. Even Sean
Connery cannot save it.
On a scale of one to ten, Just
Cause rates a four.
CARROT from page 7
mor. With several trunks of props,
he has been called Gallagher with
a twist. Carrot Top's props are
mostly his own inventions and
modifications of existing items.
He's got high heels with train-
ing wheels, a paper cup phone with
an extra cup for call waiting and a
Richard Simmons exercise bike
(that one defies explanation, folks;
you have to see it to believe
it.)These props give Thompson the
material that has made him so
He has been called the next
Jim Carrey, and as if to make that
prediction come true, Carrot Top
has recently signed a three-picture
deal with Trimark Pictures.
His first movie. Chairman of
the Board, was scheduled to be-
gin filming in February. It is a com-
edy about office politics and big
business, but with Carrot Top in-
volved who knows what will hap-
Cairot Top's act, although not
geared towards any particular age,
has found an almost cult follow-
ing with the college crowd. How
does a marketing major find him-
self a cult hero overnight? Well,
maybe not overnight, but fame and
fortune have certainly attached
themselves to Thompson quickly.
He went from telling jokes at
Florida Atlantic University to ap-
pearing on the Tonight Show four
times in one year. And audiences
aren't showing any signs of being
tired of his act. It seems that the
college crowd has found a come-
dian who speaks to them and
they are all too willing to listen.
What does Carrot Top himself
think of his popularity? Well, he's
obviously pretty happy. But he's
also thinking of expanding his ca-
reer. The college circuit won't be
his home forever. With his movie
deal and a possible sitcom, he plans
to be moving on to bigger and bet-
ter things before you know it.

Carrot Top's Sunday performance.

cheerleading squad and ECU dance
team got the answer they had been
waiting for for weeks on a national
competition bid.
ECU Interim Athletic Director
Henry VanSant and Assistant Athletic
Director Lee Workman informed both
squads that they would be able to at-
tend the Universal Cheerleading As-
sociation (UCA) National Champion-
ships in Orlando on April 7-8.
"I think it's great said Pirate
cheerleading coach Heather Zophy,
who is a former ECU cheerleader her-
self. "The squad has worked really
hard. It's great that they are getting
the opportunity
The athletic department is help-
ing to fund the trip, and Jeff Paine,
varsity captain, is glad to see the sup-
port that the athletic department is
giving the squads.
"I'm glad the athletic department
is supporting us he said. "It makes
the entire squad feel good. Hopefully
we will be able to represent our school
well in Orlando
Workman said that the athletic
department is very proud of the
university's cheerleaders and the
dance team.
"We here at ECU are very excited
about the fact that they will be able
to participate said Workman.
Earlier in the year, the squad
made a video and sent it to the UCA
for review. ECU's video was rated as
15th best in the nation. Only the top-
10 team's expenses were paid for by
the UCA, so the athletic department
at ECU decided that they would help
fund the groups' trip to the national
ECU dance team coach Alto Gary
is also very happy with the decision.
"I'm just glad that they are giv-
ing us the opportunity she said. "I
really appreciate how the athletic de-
partment handled it. They took a long
look at the situation, and handled it
"I think Dr. VanSant, being the
interim athletic director, greatly im-
proved our chances said Gary.
The Pure Gold Dancers are
ranked 8th nationally, and plan to
practice relentlessly until they leave
for Florida.
The cheerleaders will continue to
practice until they leave on April 5th
for Orlando. Upon arriving in Orlando,
the teams will go to Disney World and
Pleasure Island. On Saturday, April 8,
ECU will compete in the Division I
National Championships.
Good luck to the entire group of
cheerleaders and dance team mem-
bers who will make the trip.

The ECU women's tennis team has started off the 1995 season at 9-1. This season
is the first in which they have beaten UNC-Charlotte, Davidson and Elon College.
Mix of freshmen to
seniors proves to
be big success
Scott Batchelor
Staff Writer
Just take a look at the record
One quick glance will show you
that the ECU Women's Tennis teams
of old haven't exactly burned the
courts with their success. That is un-
til now.
The history books go back almost
20 years, to 1976, and tpfl a painful
story: 10 losing seasons, no tourna-
ment championships and most wins
in a season with only 11.
Despite the woes of tennis teams
past, the 1995 edition is on track to
break every record in those record
books, as well as rewrite the history
books. Could this be the season that
propels ECU over the top?
Look at the facts.
The Lady Pirates stand 9-1, their
only loss coming to Georgia South-
ern, a team whose top player is no.
73 in the nation, and the top doubles
team is 27th in the country. However,
before that set back, the lady netters
reeled off a nine-match win streak, the
longest in the history of the school.
During that time, ECU knocked
off a regionally ranked powerhouse,
Davidson, by a 4-3 score. They also
posted wins against in-state rivals
UNC-Charlotte, Elon, and Appalachian
State. A victory against Big East
power Georgetown was perhaps the
climax of the run.
Now the Lady Pirates prepare to
launch into Colonial Athletic Associa
tion play, a jump that could put them i
in the stratosphere of Colonial action.
The Pirates are led by an unlikely
hero, Freshman Rachel Cohen. The
Philadelphia, Pa. native has a 9-1
record, t7-0 at the number four spot.
She has come in to the Pirate pro-
gram and given it a much needed1,
"Rachel has won some big
matches for us Head coach Allen
Farfour said. "She is only a freshman,
but she is winning some big matches
for us
Cohen is not the only reason the
Lady Pirates are off to a blazing start.

With just two seniors on her
roster, Lady Pirate softball coach
Sue Manahan has put together a
young, exciting squad that has al-
ready found success on the ECU
"The missing ingredient is ex-
perience Manahan said. "That will

Manahan lost five seniors to
graduation, including speedy
Michelle Ward, a two-time NCAA
stolen base champ and East Coast
Athletic Conference Player of the
Year, ECAC first-teamer Lisa
Corprew, as well as Sherri Allen,
Leann Myers and Georgeann Wilke.
Seniors Dana Crosby and Dana
Lewis will be the field leaders for
the '95 Lady Pirate squad. Crosby,
a DH, batted .286 a season ago with
five doubles and 25 RBI in 54
games. She saw limited action in
1993 after transferring from UNC-
Wilmington. Crosby is currently out
of action with a broken arm.
Lewis, a first baseman, hit .283
last year after transferring from
Chowan College. She registered 8
doubles, 2 triples and 19 RBI, and
started all but one of the 59 games
in which she played. Lewis is bat-
ting .242 this season.
Jolin Eckman (2B), has not
been caught in eight stolen-base at-
tempts this year, tops on the team.
The junior was named Most Im:
proved Player in 1993 after batting
.341. During her career, Eckman
has stolen 30 of 32 bases, and is
batting .263 this year.

Well it's that time of year again!
No I'm not talking about the beauti-
ful ECU women getting suntans (al-
though that is pretty nice). It's time
for March Madness!
There is nothing like the NCAA
basketball tournment. Everyone is
making their picks, placing bets, en-
tering pools (which, by the way, are
illegal - but who cares?) and talking
about who should have, and who
should not have gotten into the tour-
nament. (For example, Manhattan
over Georgia Tech. I think the com-
mittee has been watching too much
of the O.J. Simpson trial).
There are the commentators
who think they know exactly who's
going to win what region, who the
upsets are going to
be, and, finally, who
will go to the Final
Four and win the na-
tional championship.
With much respect to
Clark Kellogg and the
almighty one Dick
Vitale, I, Brian Paiz,
staff writer of TEC
sports department,
under the guidance of
the other almighty
one, Dave Pond, will
break down the entire
tournament for you.
Let's start with Midwest Region.
It's probably the toughest region of
them all. You have Kansas, Arkansas,
Purdue and Virginia, which are all
quality teams vying for the trip to
Seattle. But the
most intriguing
matchup is 8
Western Ken-
tucky versus 9
Now every-
one knows
Michigan's past
glory, but this is
an entirely new
team this year
that barely
squeaked into
the tournament. Western Kentucky,
on the other hand, has a 23-6 record
and is one of the most underated
teams in America. They are currenly
"Let's start with
the Midwest
region. It's
probably the
toughest region of
them allKansas,
ranked 22nd in the nation, and it's a
good bet that they will send the Wol-
verines home early.
In the bottom half of the bracket,
a Cinderella team could be the South-
ern Illinois Salukis. They play Syra-
cuse in the first round, and every-
one knows that Jim Boeheim's squad
can't win a big game. Then there's
defending National Champion Arkan-
sas. The Razorbacks have all the tools
to repeat, but the Midwest region is
a big test. I see Virginia and Arkan-
sas battling it out in Kansas City for
the right to go to the Final Four, with
Arizona maybe sneeking in.
Next is the Southeast Region.
It's close to heart for some people,
since the UNC Tarheels are involved.
UNC could win the region, but only
if Rasheed Wallace stops crying af-
ter every foul. They could face a
tough second round opponent in ei-
ther Florida or Iowa St, who shocked
just about everyone by getting to the
finals of the Big Eight tournament
. My sleeper team in the Region
is the Georgetown Hoyas. I like Allan
Iverson. After all this kid has beep
through, he comes out in his fresh-
man year and has a remarkable sea-
son. Then theres Michigan State, who
the Hoyas could meet in the second
round, if they get by Xavier. The fans
in Lansing Michigan are reminiscing
about the good ol' days when a player
by the name of "Magic" won them a
national championship. The Spartans
are led by Ail-American Shawn
Respert. who can do about anything.

By being motivated to not only
to be successful in 1995 for him-
self but for his younger brother as
well, senior first baseman-outfielder
Kyle Billingsley will play an inte-
gral part in the Pirates' attack on
the CAA.
Billingsley. whose younger
brother Scotty passed away in the
fall of 1994, has found the strength
and determination to play this sea-
son after separating a shoulder in
the beginning of last season and
seeing little playing time.
"Our family is very close be-
cause of him Billingsley said. "He
taught us so much about not giv-
ing up and having strength.
The transfer from Chaffey Jun-
ior College will not have as diffi-
cult a season, now that the spirit
of his younger brother has perme-
ated his soul and infused a strong
sense of determination for him to

told him Scotty before Brent and
I left in August to come back to
school that this was my last year,
and that I would dedicate it to him
When Billingsley steps into the
batter's box this season, he will let
Scottv know that he's thinking
about him.
"I have a tattoo of his initials
on my right arm. because it is the
arm that faces the pitcher when I
hit Billingsley said. "Before the

"Since Brent is a pitcher, he
looks up before he starts every
game, to kind of let Scotty know
Billingsley said.
Billingsley and brother Brent
are not as competitive as one would
think, but the elder does give a lot
of respect to the younger.
"We face each other in
intersquad games, and of all the
pitchers on our team he's the one
I'm most afraid of Billingsley said.
"He has focused more on playing
baseball than I have because I
played football too in high school.
He's really good
Before Billingsley graduates,
leaving his fourth college baseball
club, he will have fond memories
of playing at some of the best parks
up and down the East Coast.

and huge scoreboard with about

A football and baseball star in
high school. Billingsley lists a
couple of future Hall of Famers as
his baseball heroes.
"In just hitting, I like Ken
Griffey, Jr Billingsley said. "But
the total player would be Lenny
Dykstra. He'll work 110 percent, be-
cause nothing has come easy, he
has had to work for everything he's
An extremely hard worker,
Billingsley improved his hitting and
his fielding in the off-season, espe-
cially in the outfield.
"I thought hitting was the
toughest, but I liked it the most
Billingsley said. "I'm concentrating
right now on defense. I like the out-
field and I like making diving
As Billingsley completes his fi-
nal season, the optimism of going
on the minor league baseball cir-
cuit has been an entertaining idea.
"Ever since I was little I had a
dream of playing professional base-
ball Billingsley said. "If it doesn't
work out, then I would like to get
into advertising and designing ads
Whatever the future holds for
him, Billingsley has set out to put
together a memorable 1995 season,
helping to bring leadership and suc-
cess to a young ECU squad, as he
has for his family and younger
TIME from page 12
The upper part of the bracket
boasts no overwhelming team, except
maybe Kentucky. Rick Pitino (whom
I consider one of the best coaches in
the nation) will try to get his team
back to the Final Four for the sec-
ond time in three years. Oklahoma
is another team that could suprise
some people. They have a pure scorer
in Ryan Minor, and their up-tempo
offense could give some people some
problems. But when it comes down
to the finals in Birminghamm
Alabamam look for the Tarheels and
Kentucky vying for the all-expense
paid trip to Seattle.
In the East Region sits ACC
Tournament Champion Wake For-
est. Not even a terrific game by
Jerry Stackhouse in the ACC final
could stop Randolph Childress' per-
formance. He played like a man
among boys when he had the ball.
Wake should have no problem get-
ting to the Regional Finals. Only
Ivy League foe Pennsylvania, who
beat Michigan on their homecourt,
could give them some problems. In
the bottom part of the region is
UMass. The Minutemen have two
outstanding players in Loe Rowe
and Marcus Camby, and should
reacch the regional finals since
George Washington did not make
the tournament. (GW beat them
twice during the season).
Villanova could cause some
problems, but they better not over-
look the Old Dominion Monarchs.
Yes I said ODU. THe same team that
ECU played pretty well during the
season. ODU is a very athletic team,
and if Petey Sessoms gets hot, the
Wildcats might be going back to
Philidelphia earlier than expected.
Finally, to the West Region.
Theres no question who is the best
team. The UCLA Bruins are reliv-
ing glory days once again, with
brothers Charles and Ed O'Bannon.
They should make it to the Final
Four unless, for some earthly rea-
son, they just don't get off the bus!
I know what you're saying - "What
about Maryland?" Well the Terra-
pins have a good shot, but Joe
Smith will have to show up for ev-
ery game. A UCLA-Maryland Re-
gional Final should be a lock, and
when these two teams get together,
buckle up, because youre going to
be in for a wid ride!
That's it! I hope my great (ha!)
college basketball expertise helps
you enjoy the tournament just a
little bit more, and if you don't
agree with what I am saying, refer
all letters to the Sports Editor -
because he make more money than
I do, so he gets all the headaches!

from page 11
to a hot start in 1995, as is junior
IB Joey Clark. Both players are hit-
ting .370, with 46 at bats apiece.
Clark transferred from San Diego
State University and had the few-
est errors in a season for SDSU.
Rhonda Rost. last season's sec-
ond-leading hitter with a .405 av-
erage in 30 games, has two home
runs, two triples and 12 RBI to go
with a .250 average early this sea-
son. The third baseman is the
team's slugging leader (.500) in
Dawn Conrad leads all outfield-
ers with a .362 batting average dur-
ing her freshman season. She's
joined in the outfield by Heather
Smith, a versatile junior who has
started all three seasons for Coach
Manahan. Tonya Oxendine (.239)
and Amy Swaim (.091) saw limited
action a season ago.
Behind the plate, Mary Dunlap
(.250 in '95) and Dana Hullings
(.282) has split playing time.
Dunlap, a junior, has started 54
games in over 2 seasons, and was
the 1993 Lady Pirate Classic Gold
Glove Award recepient.
On the mound, freshmen Jamie
Bendle (7-2, 2.38 ERA) and Christi
Davis (2-0, 1.05) have been out-
standing in their first season at
ECU. Returning pitchers Teryn
Ford (1-2, 2.25) and Tracie
Podratsky (2-2, 5.78) combined for
19 complete games last year.
Manahan recently got her
400th career victory (401-222 life-
time), averaging 30 wins a season.
She is assisted by Tracey Kee, pitch-
ing coach Jenny Parsons, and
Zuleyma Crimele Heridico, who will
assist Manahan for three months.
Heridico played on the Venezu-
elan National Team for seven sea-
sons, as a second baseman and lead-
TENNIS from page 11
12-2 mark last season, is now 8-2 in
1995. In a recent seven-match win
streak, Garten lost 14 games while
winning 92.
The Cary product has also
teamed with doubles partner Hollyn
Gordon to grab a 64 record, second
best on the Pirate squad. The doubles
play has been an integral part of the
spring success.
The majority of ECU'S matches
are played under the seven-point sys-
tem, where doubles are played first.
The team that emerges with two wins
receives one point. The other six
points are decided in singles competi-
tion. ECU has gained the one-point
advantage seven times thus far in the
Chelsea Earnhardt, a junior from
Independence, Va struggled last sea-
son for the Pirates. She posted a 3-9
singles record, and a 7-7 doubles mark.
She has come out so far with all guns
blazing, ripping forehand winners and
overhead smashes. Earnhardt has ac-
cumulated a 7-3 record at the no. 2
position, and, with Courtney Hargett,
off hitter.
"Zuleyma will assist the team
in slap-hitting, base-running and
conditioning Manahan said. "We
are excited to have her as a part of
our staff for the next three
Early on, it looks like the Lady
Pirates have hit the ground run-
ning, and the young squad should
have a successful season in 1995.
"Although we are young, we
have very good team chemistry
Manahan said. "As long as we can
stay together and work hard we will
be successful

possesses a 7-3 doubles mark.
Hargett is another factor in the
Lady Pirates winning ways. She has
faced some big-time players, and has
come away with a victory against more
than a few of those.
Hargett came to ECU last year
and was immediately thrown into the
line-up at number one. She had a 94
record during her rookie season, and
posted an 8-5 mark during the fall
tournament season. Hargett hails from
a tennis- rich community, Boca Raton,
FL, where some of the finest profes-
sionals have emerged, like Jennifer
Hargett started slow, but has
come on strong for the Lady Pirates
as of late. She now has a 5-6 record,
but should enjoy a strong conference
performance, and see her wins mount
Two other Pirates have made siz-
able contributions this year. Junior
Lisa Hadelman began the year
strongly but has been hampered by
injuries. She was forced to retire in
her match against Georgia Southern,
but now that the team has had a week
off, she should be in top form for
Saturday's matches.
Sophomore Hollyn Gordon has
also provided a strong shot of tennis
punch for ECU. She won her flight in
the 1994 UNCC Invitational, and now
owns a 64 record. Gordon posted only
six wins in all of last year, so the
progress she has made is evident
The story of this edition of the
Lady Pirates is evident. They have had
a stellar conference warm-up, but the
CAA is much tougher than some of
their early foes. The Pirates had to
settle for a fifth place finish last year,
after a 5-1 conference finish.
Four CAA teams grace the Fall
East Regional Rankings, William and
Mary (1st), Richmond (6th), James
Madison (10th), and Old Dominion
(15th). If the Pirates want to move to
the next echelon, they will have to play
almost perfect tennis against the CAA
The journey begins Saturday, as
the Pirates take on George Mason, here
at the Minges Tennis Complex. The
road may not be smooth, but the path
is clear. The Pirates are on their way.

Tuition Surcharge
1. What is the tuition
In 1993, the North Carolina
General Assembly (Senate
Bill 27-Sectkn 89b)
enacted legislation directing
the Board of Governors to
impose a 25 tuition
surcharge on students who
take more than 140 degree-
credit hours to complete the
first undergraduate
baccalaureate degree in a
four-year program or more
than 110 of the credit
hours necessary to
complete a five-year
program. In 1994, the
legislation was modified
(Senate Bill 1505-Section
17.10) to exempt students
who complete the degree in
eight regular term
semesters or the equivalent
(or ten semesters for a five-
year program).
2. Who is affected by the
tuition surcharge?
All undergraduate degree-
seeking students admitted
to ECU beginning Fall 1994
are affected. The
surcharge applies to
transfer students and
freshmen, in-state and out-
of-state students. Students 5.
enrolled at ECU prior to Fall
1994 are exempt.
What counts in the 140 s.h.
allowed before the
surcharge applies?
The following are used to
compute the 140 s.h
(a) all regular semester
courses taken at ECU
including repeated
courses, failed
courses, and those
dropped after the last
date to add a course 6.
(b) transfer credit hours (up
to 98 s.h.) except those
taken at another UNC
institution through
summer school or
through degree-credit
Is there anything that
doesn't count in the 140
The following are excluded
from the 140 s.hlimit: AP
and CLEP credit, bypass
credit (e.g math or foreign 7
language), institutional
advanced placement credit,
summer term credits earned
at a UNC institution, and
credits earned through the
degree-credit extension
division at a UNC
How will transfer credit
affect the 140 s.hlimit?
All transfer credits will count
toward the 140 s.hlimit
except credit earned in
summer school at ECU or
at another UNC school.
Credit hours earned through
UNC degree-credit
extension programs are
also exempt. (If a student
transfers over 98 s.h he or
she is allowed 30 s.h. at
ECU before the surcharge
What happens if a student
attends summer school out
of state or at a private
school in North Carolina?
Any credit earned at any
institution except a UNC
school will be counted in the
140 s.hlimit, including
credits earned in summer
BSAMSA in Accounting at
How much will the tuition
surcharge be?
If a student has 140 s.h. or
more, the surcharge is
25 of his or her tuition
(only tuition, not fees).
The surcharge applies to
in-state tuition and out-of-
state tuition.
993 Session (mm
Secdon 89a. and 6 )
12. How does the 140 s.hrule
apply to students seeking a
second undergraduate
The surcharge will be
applied when the student
exceeds 110 of the
minimum number of
additional hours required
for the second degree. For
example, at ECU the
surcharge will apply if the
student takes more than
33 hours in a program that
requires 30 hours. The 140
s.hrule, however, does
not apply to nondegree
What if a student attends
summer school at a
community college in North
All credits earned at a
community college (regular
semester or summer
school) count in the 140
s.h limit.
What if a student has over
140 s.h. but graduates in 4
years or less?
The 140 s.hlimit applies
only to students who take
longer than eight regular
term semesters to earn a 4-
year baccalaureate degree
or ten regular term
semesters in a degree
program designated by the
Board of Governors as a
five-year program
10. If a student has 130 s.h. of
credit and enrolls for 15
s.h will he or she have to
pay a surcharge? How will
it be computed?
Yes, the student will have
to pay a surcharge. He or
she will be charged the
tuition surcharge in the first
semester in which
enrollment exceeds 140
s.h. The amount of the
surcharge is based on the
number of hours in excess
of 140 s.h. (The exact
amount depends on the
number of hours for which
the student is enrolled and
the number of excess
11. What happens if a
student's degree program
requires over 128 s.h.?
Two baccalaureate
programs at ECU (Art
Education and Clinical
Laboratory Science) and
the combined BSAMSA in
Accounting require more
than 128 s.h. If a student
is enrolled in one of these
programs, the tuition
surcharge applies when he
or she exceeds 110 of
the required hours for the
15 Semester-Hour
1. What is the 15-hour
average courseload
policy? 4
In 1993. the North Carolina
General Assembly (Senate
Bill 27-Section 89a)
enacted legislation
directing the Board of
Governors "to set a goal of
increasing to 15 the
average number of credit
hours per term taken by
full-time undergraduates"
with the mandate that the
goal "be met systemwide
and by each constituent
institution no later than
1997 This
part of the
aimed at
No, ECU students have
not been averaging 15 s.h.
In 1993, the average
courseload for full-time
students was 14.85 s.h. In
order to reach an average
of 15 s.h. by 1997, the
Board of Governors set a
goal of 14.88 s.h. for 1994.
ECU did not meet this
goal; instead, the average
courseload declined to
14.66 s.h. in 1994.
What happens if the
average courseload is not
15 s.h. by December
Although the legislation
does not specify what
action will be taken if the
goal is not reached,
several possible
consequences can be
envisioned. The recent
announcement of the
penalty for failure to
comply with the 18 cap
on out-of-state students is
an example of what can
happen when legislative
mandates are not taken
What are faculty expected
to do?
Faculty can advise
students to take at least 15
s.h. unless there is a
sound academic reason to
register for fewer hours.
Such advice will help
students graduate sooner,
a goal which is desirable
for both the students and
the university.
