(AP) - Two years ago,
Campbell University received a bill
for the medical care of one of its
teachers - a $20,000 charge for
treating an AIDS-related illness.
School officials waited for the
teacher to return from medical
leave, then they fired him as a
threat to the safety of students.
Now, the Southern Baptist-
affiliated school has received an-
other bill. It must pay $325,000 to
the teacher for wrongful dismissal.
And it has to give him his job back,
(AP) - Serial murder defen-
dant Henry Louis Wallace ex-
pressed relief after calmly describ-
ing in a tape-recorded statement
to police how he murdered 10
Charlotte women.
He said he knew the day was
coming after going through each
of the cases in a tape made follow-
ing his arrest more than a year ago.
"Many times when I was commit-
ting these crimes I wanted to die
Wallace's recorded voice filled
a Charlotte courtroom Tuesday, as
prosecutors played the first of
some 10 hours of tapes made by
homicide investigators in the early
morning hours of March 13,1994,
the day after Wallace was arrested.
Around the Country
(AP) - Lisa Marie Rossler
stood before her parents' killer,
pleading for her life and that of
her infant son. Ms. Rossler begged
for her life with her baby crying
in her arms, after a gunman con-
fronted her in a refinery inspec-
tion company where he killed five
people in Corpus Christi, Texas.
James Simpson, a former em-
ployee who left the Walter Rossler
Co. last fall, walked into the office
Monday and opened fire with a 9
mm semiautomatic pistol and a .32-
caliber revolver. When he finished,
he walked out the back door and
shot himself. Police still didn't have
a motive Tuesday.
Around the World
(AP) � Right-wing violence
declined in 1994 but police bru-
tality increased, as did harassment
of foreigners, Jews, homosexuals
and others in Germany, Human
Rights Watch reported today.
The leading U.S. rights group
praised the German government
for committing more police and
prosecutors to combat right-wing
violence, keeping a closer eye on
neo-Nazis and rightist radicals, and
imposing stiffer sentences on vio-
lent criminals. The level of violence
motivated by hatred of foreigners
is still four times higher than it
was before the 1990 unification.
(AP) - They came by boat,
truck and bus, some 200 heavily
armed men intent on terrorizing
and plundering the coastal town
of Ipil, Philippines.
At least 46 people died and
47 were wounded Tuesday before
the gunmen fled into the forest or
by sea, taking nine hostages with
them according to one witness.
Initial reports put the death toll
at about 100.
Eakin to stay

ECU breathed a sigh of relief
Tuesday when University of Louisville
officials announced that John
Shumaker was selected as the 16th
president of the university.
Dr. Richard R. Eakin, who has
served as ECU's chancellor for the
past eight years, plans to remain at
ECU until his retirement.
"I would like to spend the rest of
my career, as long as East Carolina
would have me, as the chancellor of
East Carolina Eakin said March 24.
Eakin spent the weekend in Se-
attle, Washington attending the NCAA
tournament and then stopped on his
way back to Greenville to visit rela-
tives. He was expected to arrive in
Greenville late last night
ECU officials and students have
spent the past month speculating over
what Eakin's decision would be. Ten-
sions grew greater last week after a
fourth candidate, Gregory O'Brien,
The 9-month-long search for the
Louisville president included over 100
nominees. Once the finalists were se-
lected, the search included over 30
meetings of faculty, staff, students,
alumni, as well as other advisory
groups. The candidates were evalu-
ated by hundreds of employees and
community members. Their comments
were then forwarded to a presidential
search committee which recom-
mended Shumaker.
During TEC's Chatting with the
Chancellor session, Eakin confirmed
that he planned to inform the search
firm to remove his name from their
list after the Louisville decision was

demic Affairs Tinsley Yarborough was

Students turn into scavengers

Fraternity hosts
hunt with a big
cash payoff
Laura Jackman
Staff Writer
Most students usually find them-
selves financially strapped by this
point in the semester, but the Pi
Kappa Phi fraternity has a quick,
easy and fun answer to that problem.
At noon on Saturday, April 8, the
fraternity is sponsoring a scavenger
hunt and the prize to the team that
finishes first, with all the clues in cor-
rect order, is $500 cash. Several
Greenville merchants are also spon-
soring the event, but are remaining
a secret so that "we don't give any
clues away beforehand said Pi
Kappa Phi President Darren Sams.
Teams of five people or less can
enter the hunt for just $25 and a por-
tion of all money collected will go to
the fraternity s philanthropy, PUSH
America. In 1977, Pi Kappa Phi be-
came the first national social frater-
nity to find a non-profit philanthropy.
People Understanding the Severely
Handicapped (PUSH) was originally
founded on the idea that there was a
need to support disabled children
throughout communities.
"Since then, we have broadened
our cause and now help all severely
handicapped people, not just chil-
dren said PUSH Special Events Di-
rector Chris Orr.
"We have to donate at least 15
percent of the money we collect, but
we'd like to give more, it just depends
on how many people participate
Sams said. "The donated money will
help build playgrounds for kids, or
anything else they might need to
make life easier and happy
Although registration does not
begin until the day of the hunt, sev-
eral groups have already contacted
the fraternity to promise their money
and support.
"Right now, we expect between
75 to 100 people, but we'd like to
get as many more as that as possible
to come out to come out Sams said.
There are 10 different clues to
solve and at each stop, fraternity
brothers will be available to assist
anyone that might need it. In addi-
tion to getting the next clue at eajfh
stop, the local businesses sponsoring
the event will be handing out student
coupons and other types of dis-
The scavenger hunt, which is lim-
ited to inside Greenville's city limits,
and is open to all students, is ex-
pected to last approximately 2 to 3
hours. The registration fee can be
paid in the form of check or cash.
After all participants are registered
and understand the rules, the clues
will be handed out and the hunt will
officially begin.
"We want everyone to have fun
and be safe while also helping a good
cause as well Sams said.

Greenville is being honored for its
green. For the seventh year in a row
Greenville has been named a Tree City
USA by The National .Arbor Day Foun-
The National Ar-
bor Day Foundation
sponsors the Tree City
USA program in coop-
eration with the USDA
Forest Service and the

of State Foresters.
For a city to be
deemed a Tree City
USA, it must meet four
standards: a tree board
or department, a com-
prehensive community forestry program,
a city tree ordinance and an Arbor Day
Katie Veilleux, public information
officer for the City of Greenville, feels
the naming of Greenville as a Tree City
USA says a lot for the partnership that
exists between the city and its citizens
in their concern for the appearance of
the city.
"We have a number of citizen
groups that are very active in terms of
community appearance and the
Greenville Greenways Project" Veilleux
said. "There is a segment of the popula-
tion that has a strong interest in promot-
ing the 'greening' of Greenville and us-
ing trees to create a more pleasant envi-
ronment for the people who live here.
"This is just a
recognition of the
city and the citi-
zens, and the uni-
versity participates
in some of these ac-
tivities as well. It is
a recognition of
the partnership
that exists
Greenville is
currently sponsor-

organizations are supporting including

Date and acquaintance rape have
become hot topics in recent years. In fact
so hot that Beverly Hills 90210 held its
own Take Back the Night rally.
Current headlines (and yes, even
that dreadful Simpson trial) make it clear
that women's issues have been put on
the back burner for too long. This Satur-
day. April 9, there is an open invitation
for everyone to speak out on all issues
concerning women's discrimination in
the workplace to rape and domestic vio-
lence, in Washington D.C.
The word has spread to campuses
nationwide that we. as college students,
should be aware of potentially threaten-
ing situations.
ECU students have already begun
to participate in Rape Awareness Month
by completing the Take Back the Night
March on Tuesday. April 4, an event to
raise consciousness about the senseless
violence women
(and men) are tar-

The past two years have been

that's not a real representative fig-

Marshall would encourage orga-

new proposal in their favor. "How can
we put our best candidate forward?
How can we make this work for us?"
said Marshall.
Marshall and the Homecoming
Committee want student feedback.
"It's a learning experience for ev-
erybody here. You're not here because
you're beautiful, you're here because
you have a certain level of intelli-
gence Marshall said.
The proposal is by no means set
in stone. When it comes before the
Steering Committee it may be re-
worked. A very likely alternative to the
current proposal would be to screen
the candidates down to five males and
five females, then let the students have
a popular vote.
"People fear what they don't un-
derstand. They may not like what we
com up with, but I want them to un-

The East Carolinian
Our View
For the seventh
straight year, the
Emerald City has
been named tree
city of the year.
And you thought
all Greenville
had to offer was
a dozen bars in
a single block.
Picture this. The Smith family (Mom, Dad, little Billy and
sister Sue) are out on their annual camping vacation. The happy
Smiths have packed their picnic baskets, tents and bug repel-
lents, eager to begin their wilderness adventure. Wanting a
safe and fun experience, the Smiths have chosen to visit one of
America's national parks.
They pitch their tents and make their campfire. Now they
are ready to enjoy national park wilderness life. Little Billy
ranges out from the campsite on his own, as little Billy is wont
to do, playing Bigfoot hunter in the forest
Ignoring a warning sign partially obscured by some foli-
age, Billy wanders into a dangerous logging area. The busy
lumberjacks don't see Billy, and he is crushed by a falling tree.
"Wait you say. "That can't happen. They don't log na-
tional parkland
Well, not yet anyway. But a bill has recently passed through
the House of Representatives (pushed through by Newt
Gingrich if you're looking for someone to blame) that would
open up America's national parks to logging. If this bill goes
all the way, it's the buzz of a chainsaw and no more Yellowstone.
And the affects on recreational activities are a frivilous
concern when compared to possible ecological damage. Don't
we have few enough trees without this? It's difficult to drive
very far outside the city without coming across some logging
as it is. Do we really need to decimate our national parks, too?
Not to flog a dying horse here, but the deforestation of the
South American rain forests has had devastating ecological
affects. Should we expect the destruction of some of the last
big woodlands in the country to be any different?
Maybe Congress should look to Greenville as an example
(yes, we did something right for once). The Emerald City has
been named a tree city of the year for seven years running in
recognition of the large amount of greenery left standing in
the face of progress. That's right, be thankful you live in a
town with the proper respect for nature and clean air.
In fact, more trees will be planted this afternoon in memory
of Detlev Bunger, the ECU student who was tragically killed in
a biking accident earlier this semester. This afternoon at 5:30,
a ceremony in Bunger's honor will be held in front of the Howell
Science Complex Breezeway.
It's a fitting tribute to a young man who was dedicated to
ecological causes. We can only hope our national parklands
will last as long as Bunger's tree.
fM Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
1 am writing in response to
Chris Arline's article "Children
need welfare reform Arline
couldn't be more on target when
he pointed out that this nation des-
perately needs welfare reform.
Should this reform be made by sac-
rificing the lives of innocent chil-
dren though?
That is exactly what Arline is
suggesting by saying we should
cease funding for illegitimate chil-
dren. Mothers on welfare can al-
ready barely feed themselves. Do
you really think they would be able
to feed and care for a baby without
more money? Innocent babies
should not have to starve as a re-
sult of the mistake that their par-
ents made.
I do agree that it is highly irre-
sponsible for a women to become
pregnant when she knows she can't
afford it. But that is the mother and
father's mistake, so why should the
baby be punished? Furthermore,
who are we to judge the mistakes of
others? And for that matter, who are
we to say children born in wedlock
deserve the right to live while ille-
gitimate children are starving?
Illegitimate children are human
beings too and deserve to be treated
that way. Providing welfare support
for children born in wedlock while
ceasing funding for illegitimate chil-
dren is basically saying that an ille-
gitimate child is less of a human be-
ing. That is simply cruel and untrue!
We all, as human beings, make
mistakes. And most of the time we
are punished for them. Illegitimate
children may be a mistake, but they
have not made a mistake. So don't
punish them!
Wendy Clayton
To the Editor:
I am writing in response to the
Chris Arline's article titled, "Children
Need Welfare Reform I agree with
him in all of his points, but believe
that a few more points should be
I believe that we as taxpayers
should not have to pick up the tab
for irresponsible people just trying to
get more money from welfare (Arline
4). I also believe the current welfare
system does induce women to have
children just that they can have more
money coming in (Arline 4).
Secondly, I believe that the wel-
fare system does not serve the rights
of the people who are not on welfare
and are paying for it. The system
should be changed entirely. We should
definitely not raise any ones welfare
money for illegitimate children that
people have (Arline 4). I also believe,
though, that people on welfare should
not be allowed to be on it as long as
they want to. I believe that two, or at
the most three, years should be the
limit for how long any one should be
on it. I think that they should be
forced to find a job and work like the
rest of us.
Overall, I think that people who
decide to have a child should not be
given money to do so. Having a child
is a big responsibility, but it is being
taken away by giving them money for
every child that they have.

To the Editor:
As the founder and director of
Jam-A-Thon music philanthropy
events, music fund raisers sponsored
by local organizations that allow lo-
cal musicians to play in area shopping
malls to raise money for Disabled
American Veterans, people on campus
frequently suggest to me different
people who play and sing who may
be interested. As a lot come out to
this event to see some of the musi-
cians in which they referred to me, it
comes to a surprise that they are not
there. It's not that these musicians
were not informed, but it's simply due
to the fact that they didn't take the
time to show up.
In my opinion, mechanics is not
an important factor in music. Music
is something that comes from the soul
and inner spirit that is priceless, for
ambition is the key factor behind all
music and anything we do. I don't care
if a person can play the piano like
Chopin or play the guitar like Edward
Van Halen, if they don't take the ini-
tiative to use their talents they are
no better than the kid who went down
to the pawn shop to a buy a cheap
Regardless of their musical tal-
ents and back grounds, the best mu-
sicians and songwriters in Greenville
are the ones who take the time and
participate in these fund raisers, such
as Jam-A-Thon, because they are us-
ing their abilities to the fullest with a
purpose in mind. To those of you who
have taken any amount of time to
come out and volunteer, you are a hell
of a lot better performers than those
so called established performers who
fail to meet the challenge.
Anyone who has a serious inter-
est in taking part in the next Jam-A-
Thon call 7564916. I'm in a great
need for players who can play and sing
songs from the Vietnam era, such as
CCR, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, etc.
Only unplugged please.

Black Greeks display moral support
There have been several articles
about Black sororities and fraternities
and their members in the newspaper
these last two semesters, but many of
them have been positive or would
motivate others to join. I hope after
reading this article your image of Black
Greeks will be more than a group of
individuals that is in front of the Stu-
dent Store or groups of insensitive in-
dividuals that haze those that seek
In every fraternity and sorority
there is a bond that goes beyond per-
sonalities and status of members. This
cohesiveness is most evident when it
comes to motivating and supporting a
member that is excelling and making
a difference.
David Tyre, a member of Kappa
Alpha Psi, is a perfect example of this.
David is now completing works of art
for the new location for the African
American Cultural Center, which is
now called the Bloxton House.
He is doing this as an independant
study as well as a means of assisting
Angela McCullers
Opinion Columnist
himself in earning funds to take part
in a study abroad program that would
allow him to study art this summer in
Gubbio, Italy.
David has received contributions
from the Rivers Foundation, members
of Alpha Kappa Alpha in New Bern,
Headlines (an African American store)
and churches in his community. But
he still remains in need of more money.
He had a week to come up with
$1,000 so he asked a few of his frat
brothers (William Turner, Grove
Armistead, Elliot Armstrong, Thomas
Lee and Harold Evans) all of them
made donations to David's cause with-
out question. They did not ask ques-
tions because he is their frat brother
who is pursuing a lifelong dream.
I decided to write this article be-
cause I feel this represents the true
meaning of Greekdom - support of
one's brother or sister.
When I asked David why this trip
was so important to him and why not
just study somewhere in this country,
he answered by saying, "This trip is
not for me. I'm not the smartest stu-
dent, I'm an average student with a
talent For me the greatest benefit will
be that of inspiring a young artist that
may have never thought about leaving
his or her hometown to use their tal-
ent to hope, grow, and pursue a higher
education in the field because some-
one like myself has shown them it is
Service should be a priority
People are tired of unresponsive
government They want government
to respond to their needs with the least
amount of cost and red tape. The
American people's frustration has
manifested itself in two successive na-
tional elections. People want change.
Governor Hunt says he wants to
make service a priority in state gov-
ernment He says government should
not only cost less, but also should op-
erate more efficiently. This talk is also
floating around the halls of the state
legislature. Department heads are trav-
eling throughout North Carolina with
the message that customer service
needs to be a priority for state govern-
ment. Unfortunately, the message
hasn't arrived everywhere.
There is a nagging problem that
plagues students, staff and faculty here
at East Carolina. It's called early reg-
istration. One doesn't need a focus
group to figure out it is a prime ex-
ample of stiff and unresponsive gov-
ernment Lines stretching around the
Whichard Building often remind me
of Russians shopping in the former
Soviet Union.
Several years ago, a news corre-
spondent asked an elderly Russian
woman what she hoped to obtain by
waiting in the line she was in. "The
chance to stand in another line she
replied. This seems to be the purpose
of many lines during early registration.
Customer service was never a priority
in the former Soviet Union. It should
be here.
I often imagine a fantasy univer-

sity, where students can clip a coupon
out of the local newspaper and send it
in with their choices for summer school
classes. I fantasize about a school
where the bill and class schedule lands
in the mailbox a few days later. It
almost seems far fetched to enroll for
summer school without having to stand
in a day's worth of lines. However, the
college I imagine is not a fantasy
school. It is the University of North
Carolina at Charlotte, a school of com-
parable size to East Carolina.
I was amazed to find I did not
have to wait in lengthy lines to enroll
as a visiting student at UNC-Charlotte.
During a visit to the campus, I told
an employee about the registration
process at ECU. She had difficulty
believing the story. She remarked,
"Community colleges even have a bet-
ter system than that She's right.
Many community colleges have mail-
in or telephone class registration.
East Carolina is competing with
other universities across North Caro-
lina and the nation for a shrinking
pool of college students. One of the
cheapest and most effective ways to
excel in this competition is to offer
outstanding service to students and
potential students. We must be com-
petitive with schools like UNC-Char-
lotte to continue attracting quality
students here.
It is a disservice to both students
and staff to continue the current sys-
tem of registration. The hours uni-
versity employees spend entering reg-
istration data could be used more
wisely doing the work that piles up
during registration week. It is not an
efficient use of staff and faculty time
to enter registration data when other
options exist. Students lose in two
respects under this system. First they
lose valuable time standing in need-
less lines. Secondly, many services
they need are neglected, because of
the burden registration places on
university staff and faculty.
A new student recreation center,
a nicer dining hall and a bigger library
are important parts of recruiting qual-
ity students. However, the biggest
marketing tools East Carolina has are
its students and graduates. Janice
Faulkner, the N.C. Secretary of Rev-
enue, said in a recent talk that gov-
ernment must be more customer ser-
vice oriented. She said people want
more efficient government. She's
right. We do.
Repubs need time to fix America
If you are a member of the non-
Republican minority who regularly
cackles "The Republicans have not
accomplished anything since their over-
whelming victory last November
please spare us all from your weak-
kneed (subvirem) sobs, and read this
brief Contract With America checklist:
Passed by the House, and cur-
rently before the Senate, is the National

Central European nations.

ing state or local programs without
providing adequate funds to support
it (i.e. Brady anti-gun bill).

Despite criticism,
the Republicans
are working
diligently to

nation's welfare
"Welfare-reform legislation won an
overwhelming nod of approval in the
House on March 24. In an effort to save
American children from the horrors of
a welfare system that breeds depen-
dence, several measures were passed:
one would give the states block grants
for state programs; another offers a 5-
year limit on cash benefits to welfare
recipients and would also prohibit cash
benefits to unmarried parents under
age 18.
The House Judiciary Committee
passed the Sexual Crimes Against Chil-
dren Prevention Act. It promises
tougher jail sentences to those who use

Not making the grade was the
Balanced Budget Amendment how-
ever, the Line-Item veto was passed by

"Portions of the Senior Citizens
Fairness Act were approved by the

rently permit older Americans to buy
long term insurance and remove the
tax increase imposed on higher income
Social Security recipients.
In closing just remember, it took
the Democrats about 40 years to
nearly destroy America. It will take the
New Republican Party a few years to

Are we feeling a little jumpy, Aquarius? The combi-

and wistful glances at the outdoor pub porches are
getting to you. Aquarius, you re tense, and don't
deny it. Someone dropped a pencil and the authori-

The melee subsides in May.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Msrch 20)
Pisces shares the Aquarian dilemma. Pisces must

restlessness sets in, Pisces loses tolerance. The TV

unrequited love! You rage, you pine, you throw
yourself into your work, you organize your condi-

taking the wrong approach to heaiing. Instead, go to

Tanning tips keep skin
from frying like bacon
Meredith Langley
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
Attention all sunbathers The
forecast calls for yet another beauti-
ful spring day. Highs will be in the
mid-to-upper70s. and there won't be
a cloud in the sky. So jump into those
bathing suits and grab your beach
towel. But before you start soaking
up those rays, here are some things
you need to know about sunbathing.
I know how fun it is to get up
and spend the whole day at the beach,
living the life of luxury under the sun,
but many of us don't realize just how-
dangerous this can be. The spring sun
is very inviting, but according to
Heather 0. Zophy, M.A. Ed it would
be worth your while to "avoid the sun
between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3
p.m. because that is when the sun is
most hazardous Do some shopping
or some spring cleaning because this
is the hottest part of the day.
Indoor tanning has become a
very popular pastime and was thought
to be a great alternative to outdoor
tanning for many college kids, but
there are some things you should
know. According to the Department
of Health and Human Services, tan-
ning bed risks include skin cancer, pre-
mature skin aging, skin and eye burns,
allergic-type reactions, cataracts, re-
duced immunity and blood vessel dam-
age. If these are risks you are willing
to take, tan away, but don't complain
about looking 60 years old when you
are only 35.
Crisco is good for cooking, and
baby oil is good for anything but a
substitute for suntan lotion. Unless
you want to be called a lobster or you
like the idea of frying your skin, do

Sure, these ECU co-eds look nice now. But that sun they're
laying under could turn their skin to leather if they don't
follow the proper precautions, as outlined above.
not use these products! Even though
many of you think that the word sun-
screen te evil, it is an evil that is nec-
essary. If you plan on laying out, the
American Academy of Dermatology
recommends that you use a sunscreen
with a sun protection factor (SPF) of
at least 15. Also, if you like to swim,
surf or just play in the water, reapply
your sunscreen at regular intervals
even if the lotion is waterproof. If you
find that you are allergic to PABA (a
product used in many sunscreens)
there are many PABA-free products
to choose from.
If you are taking any type of pre-
scription medication, consult your
doctor or pharmacist before you lay
out especially if there is not a warn-
ing on the label. Cynthia Hontz, a reg-
istered pharmacist for Student Health
Services stated that you should try
to stay out of the sun if you are tak-
ing medications such as Floxin and
Septra (treats upper respiratory infec-
tions) or Doxycycline (treats some
sexually transmitted diseases).
If you do decide to whip out the
Crisco or the baby oil. remember this:
According to the American Cancer
Society and the American Academy
of Dermatology, every year approxi-
mately 450,000 Americans are diag-
nosed with skin cancer. Melanoma, a
type of skin cancer is linked to moles.
If you notice a change in shape, size,
color or texture of a mole, get it
checked out by your dermatologist
or possibly have it removed.
Many times we forget about the
trivial things such as sunscreen, get-
ting out of the sun during the middle
of the day and what kind of effects
medication can have on sun-kissed
skin. But these trivial things can be
very helpful to us later on in life. If
you would like more information
about sunbathing, Student Health
Services has pamphlets full of infor-
mation, and the Peer Health Educa-
tors offer a program on safe sunning.

bered seeing a bald-headed Boyd
Tinsley wearing a white cowboy hat

That was four years ago. Since
then, Dave Matthews, soloist, decided
to create a band. He surrounded him-
self with four other gifted musicians:
violin virtuoso Boyd Tinsley, master
saxophonist LeRoi Moore and more
than a simple rhythm section consist-
ing of bassist Stefan Lessard and
drummer Carter Beauford.
Since the formation of the Dave
Matthews Band (DMB), plenty of
folks here in Greenville remember
seeing them play at the Attic to 100
or so people while the band self-pro-
moted their debut release Remem-
ber Two Things. A lot has happened
to this band in the last year or so.
"This band's rapid growth has
happened exponentially. Fifty people
see them and love the show; they tell
50 people and so on DMB manager
Coran Capshaw told TEC in a phone
interview. Considering the number
of bands who play in this region of
the country, this exponential growth
as a live band is a feat in itself. How-
ever, the success of Remember Two
Things is almost unbelievable. It was
released on independent label Bama
Rags Records and available only at
concerts and through mail order. To
date, it has sold over 160,000 cop-
Last September, RCA released
the new DMB project Under the
Table and Dreaming. It debuted at
34 in Billboards Top 200 Album
Chart. Along with the new CD being
certified gold this month, they have
recently been featured on Late Night
with David Letterman, TBS's House
of Blues, and their only video, "What
Would You Say has been played in
regular rotation on MTV. Their repu-
tation as a live act has also reached
legendary status. DMB played with
bands such as Allman Brothers and
Blues Traveler in the H.O.R.D.E. fest
shows in the last couple of years.
Another band who played
H.O.R.D.E. will be playing with DMB
on all their dates for the next six
months. Big Head Todd and the Mon-
sters also received critical acclaim for
their part in H.O.R.D.E. As a pair,
the two bands will be on a seemingly
nonstop tour with DMB headlining
all eastern dates and Big Head Todd
headlining in the west.
The two bands have enjoyed suc-
cess with a long string of sold-out
shows everywhere from South Caro-
lina to New York � the "word of

drive. Tomorrow night, headliners

at the Wilmington Fairgrounds be-

to Canada. These two shows may

It's good stuff, and as a bonus,
the promotional copy I received,
called The The vs. Hank, has the
original Hank Williams versions of
the songs covered by The The. With
this version, you get to compare the
new stuff to the remakes, and The
The fares surprisingly well.
For example. The The's version
of "Honky Tonkin is dark and syr-
upy, with a creepy atmosphere that
creates a real sense of foreboding.

guy stops singing. Not so with the

Hank Williams version, which is
just a bouncy ode to drunken fri-
volity. My dad tells me that he used
this tune to get girls in the mood
for fun when he was in high school.
If he had played The The's version
for that, his dates would probably
have thought he was an axe mur-
derer and run for cover.
I like The The's version better.
Then there's "My Heart Would
Know a more serious tune about
how it feels to part with someone
you love. "I could say it's over now
Hank croons, "That I was glad to
see you go I could hate you for
the way I'm feeling My lips could
tell a lie, but my heart would know
Ah, that's good stuff.
The The try hard with this one,
delivering the piece with a sad Brit-
ish pop slickness. But Hank pours
his heart out. His simple sadness
gives the lyrics an honesty that The
The's version lacks. And that's why
Hank gets the big K.O. this round.
Honestly, though, The The
manages to pull a draw on most of
these songs. Hank Williams was
often forced by the country styles
of his day to punch things up to a
bouncier beat than many of the
songs called for. especially early-in
his career. Unfettered by such arti-
ficial constraints. The The can do
the songs however they like.
This sometimes leads to an un-
comfortable slickness, such as on
"I Saw The Light which does have
a nice creepy flavor going for it de-
spite its flaws.
But on tracks like "I'm a Long
Gone Daddy The The give this
typical (if funny) woman-done-me-
wrong song a sinister edge. That's
one thing I must give them the edge
on; whenever Hank was being ma-
cho, The The don't simply ridicule
it like many bands would do. They
make macho creepy, sinister and
almost evil.
It's a risky track to take, but
they pull it off well, and my hat goes
off to them for even attempting it.
The album is full of very interest-
ing tracks that could have been
merely competent if they hadn't
played around with the mood a
But the highlight of The The
vs. Hank is my favorite Hank tune,
"Six More Miles to the Graveyard
The The do this brilliantly sad song
justice, singing it dirge-style with
only an organ for accompaniment.
Compared to this. Hank's version
sounds positively happy with its
late 40's fiddles and standard
bouncy beat. The The takes this
round for simply sounding sadder.
But the sound isn't why I love this
one in the first place.
I love this song for the reason
I love most of Hank William's mu-
sic: He was a master of the quiet
moment. In "Six More Miles" he
was writing about a moment of re-
alization, the sudden hurt that
strikes in a funeral procession, six
miles away from the graveyard
where they're going to bury your
best friend. The pain you feel when
you realize that as soon as they pull
that blanket of dirt over the coffin,
you're going to be all alone. Be-
cause you won't have the body to
cling to anymore.
That, my friends, is art. And
few ever did it better than Hank
Williams, Sr.
It's a shame that Sony isn't re-
leasing The The vs. Hank for sale:
Hanky Panky, the commercial ver-
sion of this, only features The The
versions. While that's a good listen
(as programming only those tracks
to play on my copy revealed), hav-
ing the originals there only makes
it better.

made really good music and more
importantly, they were a fun band
to listen to. Unfortunately their lat-
est effort, Brainbloodvolume, isn't
fun at all. The lyrics are repetitive;
the music is choppy, and the album
sounds as though it was put to-
gether in a few days.
Brainbloodvolume is the Dustbin's
third album, and it seems their mu-
sic just keeps getting worse. It is
not as bad as their second album,

When Ned's Atomic Dustbin
first emerged onto the music scene,
they surprised a lot of people. They
were virtually unknown, but they
had the talent of rock veterans.
People were impressed by their
ability to create terrific alternative
music, but this album is disappoint-
ing. Understandably, it is an oxy-
moron to be original and alterna-
tive these days, but I thought the
Dustbin, being from the old school,
would come through for me. Well,
they didn't.
Track one, "All I Ask of Myself
is That I Hold it Together is a Nine
Inch Nails rip-off. The spirit of Trent
Reznor must have been floating
around when this song was con-
ceived. It actually sounds good, but
it doesn't sound like a song they
wrote, with ali the static, synthe-
sizer and keyboards. What hap-
pened to their sound? They used
to have one all their own.

vides the groovin' riffs as John in-
tertwines with his bellowing voice.
The lyrics are repetitive, and they
lack the "oomph" required to make
a good song. The flute is an inter-
esting touch, and it's about the only
interesting part to the song.

is truly annoying. Dustbin attempts
to create a song that keeps all of

good on paper, but put into music

The only good things I can say
about this album are tracks seven
and 11. "Stuck" has a good drum-
beat, and the two bass players get
some actual attention (you would
think a band with two bassists
would want to put them in the fore-
front after going through all the
trouble of having both of them).
The lyrics are alright, and the song
is worth mentioning. Track 11,
"Song Eleven Could Take Forever
was a good tune. It reminded me
of the old Dustbin style. It had good
lyrics and music and held onto one
melody even with the changes. It's
hard to understand how they could
come up with one good song and
nine bad ones. Perhaps Ned's
Atomic Dustbin should have taken
a little more time preparing

The East Carolinian
WEDDING from page 6
� .tut
: .
At times, Muriel's Wedding
seems to confuse comedy and
drama, but by the end of the film
the mood becomes clear, and all that
came before the ending makes more
sense. Writer-director P.J. Hogan
manages to make Muriel's Wedding
, charming without being cloying. He
j finds the ideal quirky tone with
5? which to relate his story about
Friendship turns out to be the
central theme of Muriel's Wedding,
" despite the title. The title refers to
; ' - the event that finally changes Muriel
; gJJ fnm an idealistic dreamer to an ac-
tive participant in a world where she
; can control her own destiny. That
; Muriel's wedding, the event she
thought would change her life, does
nothing to change her life comes as
���a surprise to Muriel, but not the
viewer. Instead, Muriel's divorce
causes the unexpected turnaround
in Muriel's life and is the ultimate
' "irony in the film. While Muriel
dreamed marriage could solve all
her problems, only by ending her
i marriage does she begin to take con-
- trol of her life. .
Friendship has a crucial role in
"most aspects of Muriel's Wedding.
;��' ' Early in the film, for example, Muriel
catches the bouquet at a wedding,
�I'� Jwt her snobbish friends insist she
. throw it again because they all knew
�c Muriel would never be wed. Later
; the same four friends disown Muriel,
f - telling her that she does not fit in
" their clique. "You're fat they jeer.
JYou wear the wrong clothes. You
�. don't wear your hair right. You lis-
' ten to 70s music
�" After such a harangue, Muriel's
. j-only defense is to blurt back: "I'm
� - -not nothing
Seeing Muriel find a friend in
"Rhonda provides the backbone of
this story. Though Muriel does not
. J completely appreciate all she has in
� Rhonda, she does like her life while
� Ijving with her. "I haven't listened
, to an ABBA song since being in
Sydney because my life is like an
�'ABBA song opines Muriel with ear-
j 'nestness.
" The music in Muriel's Wedding
fits perfectly. Songs like "Dancing
.Queen "Fernando" and "Waterloo"
take on meaning I never realized
. they could have. ABBA consumes
. Muriel's life and gives her hope. One
. scene with Rhonda shows the two
friends singing "Fernando" and
"Waterloo" dreamily to the stars.
Rachel Griffiths gives a wonder-
fully entertaining performance. She
is a cross between Mary Gross (from
mid80s Saturday Night Live) and
Juliette Lewis. Griffiths literally
bounces around in front of the cam-
, era. Her comic energy never dissi-
; pates, although she does manage to
, hold it in check for a few dramatic
scenes. Griffiths also has the most
uproariously funny scene in the film
.when she tells off Muriel's former
circle of friends while on vacation. I
do not think I stopped laughing for
over a minute.
Bill Hunter does a fine job as
Bill Heslop, Muriel's father. As a
council member Bill dreams as much
as Muriel. While watching the famil-
ial interactions, the viewer quickly
realizes why Muriel acts the way she
does. One funny scene has one of
Muriel's brothers kicking a milk car-
ton in the back yard while pretend-
ing to be a sports star. Hunter con-
, veys the frustration and ignorance
of his character as he blunders
through life but feels justified in tell-
ing all his children they are useless.
Hunter brings a sad humanity to Bill
Heslop to make the subplot involv-
ing Bill almost as moving as the
main part of the film involving
Muriel's Wedding could have
done without some of the more dra-
matic scenes, and the characters
could be a bit more likeable. But
overall, the film is great. Muriel's
Wedding is like a breath of fresh air

on the silver screen, especially in
Greenville. A friend just wrote to me
to say that Muriel's Wedding con-
firms his belief that "some of the
best films in the world are coming
from Australia and New Zealand
That one of those Australian films
is in town is amazing. Muriel's Wed-
ding will probably not be around
very long, so make sure to see it
soon. You may not fall in love with
Muriel, but you cannot help but fall
in love with the quirkier elements
of Muriel's Wedding.
On a scale of one to 10, Muriel's
Wedding rates an eight.

The Robersonville. N.C. native

scores were the only touchdowns of
the day for the Pirate offense.

Life as a college freshman is not
always the easiest thing in the world.
Anytime you take a 18-or 19-year-old
and throw them into a brand new
world with a brand new environment
and a brand new set of people to
whom they must adjust, it is rarely
easy- not to mention the brand new
hours of schoolwork and academic
pressure they must face.
Then, if you throw on top of that
all the difficulties inherent to a fresh-
man athlete; the many hours spent
on the road travelling from match to
match, the constant threat of injury
and the relentless practice schedule
and add that to the knowledge that
the whole team is counting on you to
perform, to win. Well, that has to be
pretty tough.
Fortunately, for the ECU tennis
program. Rachel Cohen decided to

as Pirates, has exploded onto the
scene and has played well for the Pi-
rate program. She has ripped through

While Cohen is justifiably proud
of her success, she said that she un-

and merely wants to focus on the
match at hand.

Cohen, imported into Greenville
from Philadelphia, Pa said that she
finds life in the Emerald City quite a
bit different from her hometown.
"It's very different she said.
"Everything's much slower here, I
think. When I was trying to put to-
gether my class schedule down here,
everyone was saying, 'Oh don't worry

he said. "Both bring a pride into their

NOTES from page 9
The Lady Pirates placed first
in nine of sixteen events.
ECU's Cameron Bader placed
first and broke the ECU outdoor
school record in the 400IH with a
time of 1:03.96.
The ECU men's track squad
didn't leave Tempe, Arizona with
exactly what they had hoped for.
In fact, head coach Bill Carson and
his troops may have been set back
emotionally after a lackluster per-
formance in the 4 X 200 and a DNF
in the 4 X 400.
Carson had said last week that
he had hopes of running under 3:08
in the 4 X 400 and continue to walk
that time down until the Penn Re-
lays later this month. Instead, the
"Did Not Finish" may set the Pi-
rates back, after seemingly over-
coming their early season struggles
last week at the Raleigh Relays.
In the 4 X 200, East Carolina
finished with a time of 1:24.73,
which placed them seventh in the
field of eight.
The Pirates will return to ac-
tion this week at the Duke Invita-
tional on April 7th and 8th.
The Campbell Lady Camel's
tennis team invaded the Minges
Tennis Complex Monday afternoon
loaded with an arsenal of big guns.
Those guns blazed their way to a
6-3 win over the Lady Pirates. The
Camels' top seeded Aleksandra
Cvetkovic, ranked 90th in the na-
tion, proved to be too much for
ECU's Rachel Cohen, who was
moved up in the line-up at the last
Sophomore Lynn Viehmeyer
was the lone Pirate winner, taking
a 6-0, 3-6, 6-0 decision from Tricia
Van Loo. Campbell had to forfeit
number 6 singles, as well as num-
ber 3 doubles, due to the fact that
only five Lady Camels made the trip
to Greenville.
The Lady Pirates, now 12-5 on
the season, will travel to American
Friday to take on the Eagles. ECU's
match with Peace College, origi-
nally scheduled for Thursday, was
forfeited by the Lady Pride.

It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
