AROUND THE STATE
(AP) - An Air Force pilot was
found in the water about 50 miles
southeast of Wrightsville Beach af-
ter his fighter jet, also carrying an-
other crew member, was reported
missing late Tuesday night
Coast Guard rescuers hoisted
the pilot from his life raft about
12:30 a.m. Wednesday and trans-
ported him by helicopter to New
Hanover Regional Medical Center in
Wilmington, Coast Guard Petty Of-
ficer Al Bennett said in a telephone
interview from Portsmouth, Va.
(AP) - Indiana police detectives
think the slayings of five women
whose bodies were found dumped
along interstates may be linked to a
North Carolina trucker who has
confessed to killing three women.
Sean Patrick Goble, 28, of
Asheboro, N.C is charged in that
state with the murder of an uniden-
tified woman whose body was found
near Interstate 40 in February. He
told police he strangled her. Capt
Roy Forrest of the Guilford County
Sheriff's Department said Tuesday.

Ambush was the tactic three sus-
pects used on campus Sunday night
when they held two victims at gun-
point and tried to rob them.
The first incident occurred beside
Ringold Towers just after 12:30 Mon-
day morning as non-student Robert
Simmons walked to his car, police said.
The suspects surrounded him and
placed a gun to his head before he
could flee.
"I was walking into the parking
lot and, as soon as I got to my car,
one of them came through the bushes
and pulled a gun Simmons said. "As
soon as I saw the other two guys I
took off running through the bushes
and ran back to the building and no-

(AP) - A drug charge was filed
against the man accused by Carroll
O'Connor of selling drugs to his
son, who committed suicide last
month. 4
Harry Thomas Perzigian, 39,
was accused of felony possession
of cocaine for sale. If convicted, he
could face up to four years in
prison. Perzigian was arrested on
March 29, the day after O'Connor's
son, Hugh, 32, shot himself to
death and the veteran actor named
Perzigian as his drug-addicted
son's dealer.
Police said they found what
appeared to be more than an ounce
of cocaine, drug paraphernalia and
$1,700 cash at Perzigian's apart-
ment.

AROUND THE
WORLD
(AP) - Pandemonium
erupted at Yokohama, Japan's
main train station Wednesday
when a mysterious gas spread
through an underground corri-
dor, sickening at least 260 people.
The attack came a month after
nerve gas killed 12 people in the
Tokyo subway, and police sug-
gested today's may be a copycat
crime.
Thousands of commuters
raced pell-mell out of the station,
crowding sidewalks and streets.
Sirens wailed and at least 10 he-
licopters circled overhead.

Tavlor said he believes the rob-

Fletcher Hall are the same people, but
no arrests have been made. Taylor said
the suspect descriptions are too gen-
eral to jump to any conclusions, but
ECU police are always looking for sus-
picious behavior while on patrol.
"If we see people out here at
night, not going anywhere, hanging
out at bushes, stuff like that, they're
probably approached and asked what

ECU Police to
bring in extra
forces to control
Barefoot crowd
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
Thinking about taking a few
brewskies out to the mall to enjoy
the festivities of Barefoot? Well -
think again.
ECU Police will be stepping up
this year's security in anticipation
of a larger than normal crowd
thanks to headliner Widespread
Panic. ECU Assistant Police Chief
John Taylor said he will be bringing
in extra officers to help curb any se-
curity problems.
"We are expecting Widespread
to draw a bigger crowd than what
we've been having. We're bringing
in 11 officers that weren't scheduled
to work along with the regular
shift Taylor said. While in
Wilmington, Taylor said Widespread
drew a crowd of over 2.000 which
he hopes will be repeated here.
Taylor said the officers, along
with the regularly scheduled offic-
ers, will be working in staggering
shifts. The tables are expected to
come down around 4 p.m. to allow
for space for Widespread spectators.
At that time Taylor expects the ma-
jority of the officers to be on duty.
Along with Taylor and Police Chief
Teresa Crocker, there will be ap-
proximately 15 officers on duty. The
officers will be mingling with the
students to deal with troublemak-
ers.
Taylor said there are four pri-
marv rules for Barefoot. No alcohol
will be allowed. In the past, students
have brought alcoholic beverages in
containers, but this year Taylor said
the ECU Police will be checking for
underage drinking. Students who
are acting up will be "hustled out
To help with prohibiting the use of
alcohol, no coolers will be allowed.
Additionally, no pets or bicycles will
be allowed.
"We are going to be checking
for underage drinking Taylor said.
These rules were set by the
people who are organizing Barefoot
on the Mall. Taylor said the streets
between Cotten, Fleming and Jarvis
will be blocked off for the security
of the students. No one will be al-
lowed access to the back of the
stage. Participation at Barefoot is
limited to ECU students and one
guest per student.
Taylor stressed that students
take their student identification
cards with them to Barefoot as the
police will be checking those of stu-
dents making problems. He said he
hopes that ECU students will make
an effort to get out to Barefoot as a
large crowd which handles itself in
a mature manner which would pro-
mote a positive school image.

the head of the new bank that will
be created through the merge of
BB&T and Southern National Cor-
poration, said Bob Denim from pub-
lic relations for Southern National.
"It is important to note that pub-
licly, the consumer will know the
bank as BB&T, but the investment
companies will know it as Southern
National Corporation (SNC) said
Denim. "It is a $20 billion bank hold-
ing company whose principal
subsidararies are BB&T of North
Carolina and BB&T of South Caro-
lina. The banks will merge in May

(AP) - A car bomb ripped a nine-
story hole in a downtown federal of-
fice building yesterday morning in
Oklahama City, killing at least 19
people, including 17 children at a day
care center, and injuring hundreds.
Other victims were trapped in the
rubble.
The death toll was certain to go
higher. At one emergency center, a
medical worker told KWTV that only
two of 80 people found in one search
of the building had survived.
At mid-afternoon, more than 40
federal workers were unaccounted for,
according to spokesmen for their
agencies. About 20 children also were
missing. Of 40 children in a day-care
center in the building, only two were
alive, one in surgery and one in in-
tensive care. The dead ranged from 1
to 7 years old, and some were burned
beyond recognition.
Mayor Ron Norick said the car
bomb left a crater 8 feet deep. Late
this afternoon, no one had claimed
responsibility.
The explosion heightened fears
of terrorism around the country. Fed-
eral buildings in seven cities were
evacuated because of bomb threats,
and the Clinton administration or-
dered tightened security at federal
buildings throughout the country.
The blast similar to the terrorist
car bombing that rocked New York's
World Trade Center and killed six
people two years ago, happened just
after 9 a.m when most of the more
than 500 federal workers were in their
offices. The aftermath bore eerie re-
semblance to the car bombings at the
U.S. embassy in Lebanon in the 1983.
"It was like Beirut; everything
was burning and flattened said Dr.
Carl Spengler, who arrived about five

Among those unaccounted for
hours later were five people who
worked at the Drug Enforcement Ad-
ministration office, one Customs Ser-
vice officer and six employees of the
Secret Service, officials in Washing-
ton said. All 15 ATF employees at the
building survived.
One rescuer,
Christopher Wright of
the U.S. Coast Guard,
said "you're helpless,

The FBI office in
Oklahoma City sent a
teletype asking agents around the
country to contact informants and
sources with ties to or knowledge of
terrorist groups or advocates of vio-
lence, according to an FBI source in
Washington. No descriptions of any
potential suspects had been sent to
other FBI offices as of mid-afternoon,
the official said.
"Obviously, no amateur did this
Gov. Frank Keating said. "Whoever
did this was an animal
The explosion could be felt miles
away. Black smoke streamed across
the skyline, and glass, bricks and
other debris were spread over 10
blocks.
The building has a day-care cen-
ter as well as a variety of federal of-
fices. Some children were injured at
another day car center nearby.
The bomb was perhaps 1,000 to
1,200 pounds, about the size as the
one that shook the World Trade Cen-
ter, said John Magaw, director of the
federal Bureau Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms. As for whether his agency
suspected terrorists, Magaw told CNN:
"I think any time you have this kind
of damage, this kind of explosion, you
have to look there first"
Police at one point said a second,
unexploded bomb was found, but
Magaw said no other bomb was con-
firmed.
After the explosion, emergency
crews set up a first aid center nearby,
and some of the injured sat on side-
walks, bloodied on their heads or
arms, awaiting aid. St. Anthony Hos-
pital put out a call for more medical
help, and at midday officials posted a
list of more than 200 names of injured.

Carole
Lawton, 62, a
secretary in the
department of
Housing and Ur-

ment, said she was sitting at her desk
on the seventh floor when "all of a
sudden the windows blew in. It got
real dark and the ceiling just started
coming down She then heard "the
roar of the whole building crumbling
She managed to crawl down some
stairs and was not injured.
Another worker who would not
give his name told KFOR-TV: "I came

just wasn't any building left around
me. Our whole office area is gone
Jon Hansen, deputy fire chief,
said at early afternoon that there were
still people alive in the debris. "It's
very emotional inside there right
now he said. "I've seen firefighters
coming out with tears in their eyes,
very frustated they can't get in there

Besides the local offices of the
bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Fire-
arms and Secret Service, the build-
ing houses such agencies as Social
Security. Veterans Affairs, the Drug
Enforcement Administration, Housing
and Urban Development, a federal
employee credit union, a day-care cen-
ter and military recruiting offices.
In all, more than 500 federal
employees assigned to building, said
Anne Marshall, a spokeswoman for the
General Services Administration.
The explosion occurred on the
second anniversary of the fiery, fatal
ending of the federal siege of the
Branch Davidian compound in Waco,
Texas. That siege began with a raid
by ATF agents on Feb. 28, 1993.
Oklahoma City FBI spokesman
Dan Vogel said he wouldn't speculate
if there was a connection. The FBI is
not housed in the building downtown
but is in an office complex about five
miles away. Dick DeGuerin, who rep-
resented Davidian leader David
Koresh, said any such link was just
speculation.
At the scene, floors caved in from
top to bottom of the building. The
north side of the building was gone.
Burning debris and burning cars lined
streets.
People frantically searched for
loved ones, including parents whose
children were in the daycare center.
Downtown business stopped as other
buildings were evacuated.
"I thought we were dead said
Ginny Grilley, office manager for
Trammel Crow Co. She was on the
30th floor of City Place several blocks
away. "I've never heard anything that

She said she could see "a lot of
damage all over" to nearby buildings.
"It was just terrifying she said.
"When you look up and see most of
that building gone and cars destroyed
and people hurt it was just terrible
On Feb. 26,1993, six people died
and 1,000 were injured in the bomb-
ing at the World Trade Center bomb
ing in New York. A rented van blew
up in a parking garage beneath one
of the center's twin towers. Four men
have been convicted in the blast

Every nine seconds a woman is
beaten by a boyfriend or husband in
the United States. This past Tuesday
the Academy Award winning short
documentary, Defending Our Lives,
which deals with domestic violence,
was shown at 8:00 p.m. in Hendrix
Theater.
"It exposes the severity of domes-
tic violence in the United States �aid
Stacey Kabat, producer of the docu-
mentary and director of the organi-
zation Battered Women Fighting
Back!
Kabat, winner of the 1992
Reebok Human Rights Award, said
that she had grew up in a violent
home. While in college and after meet-
ing two men, one from South Africa
the other from India - who influenced
her way of thinking about human
rights issues - she got involved with
protests against South African apart-
heid and with Amnesty International
on her college campus.
She said her work with Amnesty
International led her to London where
she researched human rights viola-
tions all over the world. She even vis-
ited refugee camps in Central
America. She said that once she re-
turned to the U.S. and began work-

ing in a battered women's shelter, she
could see the parallels.
"It wasn't until I was in graduate
school in Boston that I started work-
ing in a battered women's shelter
Kabat said. "Here, I was in the heart
of the city of Boston in a shelter with
women and kids hiding in fear for
their lives and I wanted to know why
"I wanted

The docu-
mentary is a
stark film with
no background music or sound, only
the women's voices. It highlights four

and serving jail time. A couple of them
had children.
In between these segments were
news footage of homicides of women
killed by their husbands or boyfriends,
and a woman calling out all the names
of women killed by partners in a pe-
riod of a few months.
At the end of the
film, Kabat asked for
audience members' reac-
tions. They ranged from
sadness to fear to anger.
Susan McCammon.
director of women's
studies said that the

Cnildren are llVing gram co-sponsored the
speaker with the Stu-
dent Union. She said the
film made her worry
about and feel a respon-
sibility to women in this
situation.
"I guess the main
reaction is worry, worry
for the people in danger-
ous situations because I know there
are so many of them McCammon
said.
McCammon said she felt a cer-
tain responsibility to improve the situ-
ation.
Angie Vernon, a graduate student
in social work, said it was good to have
someone speak about this issue on
campus.
"I think that it's great that we had
a speaker come here and talk about
it Vernon said. "It's so important to
get the information out. It's some-
thing people think is a family issue,
but it's not. It's not a women's issue.
It's a issue that everyone needs to get
involved in, women and men
Valerie Thomas, executive direc-
tor for New Directions, a battered
women's shelter for the Pitt County
Family Violence Program, Incs, said
the film really affected her.
"I was very moved by the film
Thomas said. "Of course, I've seen
these t pes of things before but I think
what hit me the most is that I'm a
mother too, and the fact that these
women were forced to make a choice
that put them in a situation where
they were going to face prison time
and lose time with their children, and
when the one woman said that her
child doesn't know her anymore, it
just really hit me hard
Kabat said the community must
get involved and stop treating domes-
tic violence like a "family problem" in
order to solve the problem. She said
also that people need to stop believ-
ing the following five myths: domes-
tic violence does not affect many

just been passed for the Fall of 1995
and it means good news for students
interested in Women's Studies.
On March 17. the Board of Gov-
ernors granted permission to estab-
lish a degree program in Women's
Studies, which is an interdisciplinary
program at ECU. What that means is
that unlike other majors with a spe-
cific area of study, an interdisciplinary
program is comprised of several dif-
ferent areas of study.
"Courses required for this degree
range from those of the College of
Arts and Sciences to most of the pro-
fessional schools said Women's Stud-
ies Director. Dr. Susan McCammon.
Women's Studies first started at
ECU in the mid80s with the estab-
lishment of a minor program for un-
dergraduates. Then, three years ago.
a minor program was developed for
the graduate level.
McCammon said that the major-
ity of students interested in seeking
the new degree will be psychology
majors interested in women's con-
cerns and those whose major has a
possible specialty in women's health
issues.
"Most majors will probably be
double majors and we strongly encour-
age that McCammon said.
The B.A. degree will require 36
hours. If students choose to double
major, but hour requirements could
be as low as 30 because two courses
can count twice for certain majors.
What that realistically means is that
only one additional year of school is
needed for a whole additional degree.
"We feel this degree can give stu-
dents an added perspective on
women's issues that a different degree
might not be able to McCammon
said.
McCammon has served as the
director for the program for the past
three years, which is the term length
set up by the state legislature. The
Fall of 1995 will not only bring a new
degree but a new director as well.
Dr. Linda Allred, a professor in
the psychology department, will re-
place McCammon at the beginning of
the new school year.
A native of North Carolina. Allred
received her bachelor's degree in psy-
chology from Duke University. After
working for years in a field that she
was not happy with, she came to ECU
and worked at The East Carolinian
for two years while pursuing her mas-
ters degree. During that time. Allred
was accepted at Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity and she left Greenville to make
the move to Baltimore. There she re-
ceived her masters and Ph.D. in psy-
chology.
"My experience here at ECU was
so positive that I really wanted to
come back Allred said.
Immediately following her gradu-
ation from Hopkins, she returned to
ECU to teach psychology.
"When I got here. I became in-
terested in women's issues. When 1
got to Hopkins. I was told that 1
couldn't do that Allred said.
"Four years ago. Dr. McCammon
invited me to a Women's Studies meet-
ing. Before I knew it. I was elected to
the committee and the rest is history
"I'm a late-comer to the field but
I'm not a late-comer to women's is-
sues she said.
Some goals Allred would like to
see reached during her term as direc-
tor include; promoting the program
on campus, increasing participation
of ECU faculty to the national level
and to find a full-time director. "My
number one goal is to be replaced
she said.
"We need someone from the out-
side to motivate and stimulate us. That
person will need to form an organiza-
tion to be u fund raising force that
will sppU- donations and help us until

The East Carolinian
Business school places at competition
Marguerite Benjamin
Staff Writer
Certain dilligent ECU students
have been up to some serious business,
and their hard work really paid off,
making them $1,000 richer.
Congratulations are in order for
our university's MBA Graduate Busi-
ness Program. For the third year in a
row, a team from ECU has placed in
the Annual Business Student Compe-
tition sponsored by the Small Business
Technology Development Center
(SBTDC).
In the 1992-93 competition, ECU
got its first taste of victory, as the team
of David Adams, Barry Holmese and
Kent Lawrence brought home the sec-
ond- place prize. The following year,
team members Craig Antonucci, Mel-
issa Barrow and Kent Ellis received
honorable mention.
"It felt great to be competing
among North Carolina's best said Phil
Garvin, one of the members of this
year's winning team which placed third,
"but the best part was competing with
and placing ahead of Chapel Hill
Apparently there were originally
more teams sceduled to compete than
the 11 schools that actually partici-
pated. The competition just proved too
demanding for some.
"We are very pleased we were one
of the winners because the competi-
tion is getting tougher by the year

(Monday - Friday, 9am to 4pm)
said Don Boldt, ECU's MBA adminis-
trator. "It's surprising how sophisti-
cated the presentations have become.
One would think the presentations
had been prepared by professionals
The teams that competed were
recommended to the SBTDC by the
dean of the School of Business. Only
two teams per campus were eligible to
participate in the state-level competi-
tion. ECU had two teams in the com-
petition this year.
To meet the requirements of the
competition, the team consisting of two
to four people, had to prepare a writ-
ten, executive-style case report after
meeting with clients and conducting
research. The team then had to pre-
pare a 20- to 25-minute oral presenta-
tion and be prepared to answer 15 to
20 minutes of questioning presented
by the judges.
"We did our rsearch by working
four to five hours a week with Hajjar
Manufacturing, Inc. in Goldsboro
Garvin said. "We put in a lot of work
in a short amount of time - more than
I have put into any of my other classes
According to Garvin, participating in
and completing the event counts to-
ward credits as an elective class.
The other two members of
the team were Jon Matthews and
Michelle Miller. Garvin went on to say
that the only thing he was not happy
about was that the team of Charles
Cotherman, Jim Enson Jr Patricia
Lane and Bradley Ray, also from ECU,
did not place in the competition.
"We are thankful and proud that
the teams even had the opportunity
to participate in having management-
style positions in a real business set-
ting said Regional Director of the
SBTDC Colonel Walter Fitts. "The
more we can get involved, the better it
is for the businesses, the program and
the students
All of the competing teams re-
ceived certificates of participation. The
three teams selected for having the
most meritorious presentations re-
ceived cash awards. The third place
award was $1,000. The ECU Graduate
Business Program also received a
plaque.
Med. school is tops
Jim Cook
Staff Writer
WM MMMMM
Surprise your folks.
Faculty, staff, alumni and stu-
dents of ECU's School of Medicine
have a reason to smile lately. In an
article byU.S.News & World Report,
published on March 20, the medical
school was ranked in the top ten for
primary care schools.
The article also
ranked the primary
care medical schools
with regard to certain
specialties. ECU was
ranked third in fam-
ily medicine and
fourth for rural medi-
cine.
Although U.S.
News & World Re-
port has been rank-
ing medical schools
for years, the meth-
ods for ranking the
schools have changed since last year.
In the past, medical schools were sepa-
rated into two categories, research
and comprehensive, but this year pri-
mary care replaced comprehensive.
U.S. News & World Report made the
change, as a result of the increas-
ing importance placed on training pri-
mary-care physicians
Michael Watterson, a fourth-year
medical student at ECU. was not sur-
prised by ECU's high rankings. "Pri-
mary Care effort has been made by
ECU for quite a long time Watterson
said. He said he feels that one of the
reasons for ECU's success is that the
medical students were pushed into the
real world of medical practice early
in their training.
Tom Fortner, director of medical,
center news and information, said he
also believes the introduction to pa-
tient care during the students first
year was partly responsible for the
school's emphasis on primary care.
Fortner said that both the admissions
process, as well as the role models for
the students, helped stress the dedi-
cation towards primary care.
In order to help students who
choose to pursue
family medicine
the school has
implemented a
Three-Plus-Three
Program. This,
program is de
signed so that
students can
start with their
residency during
their fourth year
of medical
school, according.
to Doug Boyd,
information specialist with the ECU
School of Medicine. The program,
which was started by the University.
of Kentucky, was implemented at ECU -
starting with the class of '94. Boyd -
said that the students chosen for the
program were "people with experience r .
with providing health care
Although the Medical School's, �
purpose is to train primary care phy-1 4
sicians, there also is research being
done at the school. "Research is im
portant because to teach higher edu �
cation effectively the instructors need �. ��
to be on the leading edge of knowl-
edge discovery Fortner said. The -
school receives nearly $5 million a
year from the National Institutes Of
Health.
"Primary Care
effort has been
made by ECU
for quite a long
time

or neglect to represent the best inter
ests of the child in court The volun- '
teers are also paired with an attorney � '
advocate who represents the legal in-
terests of the child.
Cindy Bizzell, assistant adminis- -
trator of the Guardian ad Litem (GAL),
said the program, due to the intense
nature of the work, often experiences
"burnout" from its volunteers.
"We are always looking for vol- I
unteers to replace the ones who need
to take a breakthe caseload contin- �
ues to grow as well Bizzell said. "So I
we are hoping that as the word gets ;
out across the state we still continue
to need volunteers, we will continue '
our work force
Last year, the program had 3,293 j
volunteers who were representing J
over 16,000 children. In 1992-93, the J
departments of social services sub-1
stantiated 19,754 cases of child abuse I
in North Carolina. There were a re- �
ported 59,527 cases in 1992-93.
According to FBI Statistics in the ;
United States: a child is molested ev
ery two minutes, child abuse is the
number one killer of preschool chil-1
dren, one child in three will be sexu- -
ally abused before age 18 and 75 to J
80 percent of sexually-abused children ;
are abused by family members.
The first volunteer GAL program
was organized in Seattle Washington �
in 1977. By June of 1984, eight initial j
GAL programs had been established �
in North Carolina in Wake, Alamance,
Wayne, Greene, Lenoir, Prender, New
Hanover and Mecklenburg Counties.
By 1993, all of North Carolina's coun-
ties had organized GAL programs.
Brizzell feels the GAL programs
are needed in North Carolina com-
munities and have been successful in
their attempts at helping abused chil-
dren.
"It uses community volunteers
who look into community cases of
child abuse and neglect, and then
from the child's point of view they go
to court and talk to judges about what
specifically the child needs Brizzell
said. "I think communities need to be
involved in solving local problems like
child abuse and neglect
"There is something about using
a volunteer that is different from us-
ing a staff member. Volunteers take
one or two of three cases at most and
so they have a lot of focus for the cases
that they have and it's not like being
a case worker where you have 20 or
30 children that they have to look af-
ter
Unlike social workers, who must
look after the interests of all family
members, GAL volunteers only pur-
pose is to protect the best interests
of the child. They provide judges with
carefully researched information
about the child to assist the judge in

Volunteers are responsible for rep-

Brizzell, who started out in the
program as a volunteer, feels GAL

BATTERED from page 3
people: battering is only a momen-
tary loss of temper; domestic vio-
lence only occurs in poor, urban
areas; domestic violence is just a
push, slap or punch � it does not
produce serious injuries and it is
easy for battered women to leave
their abuser.
Like every county in the state
and the nation, Greenville and Pitt
County also has cases of domestic
violence.
it happens a lot more than
people think said Yvonne Smith,
case manager for New Directions.
Smith said the program was
given the right to be a non-profit
organization in 1983 and the shel-
ter was established as it is now in
1986.
Smith said that she thinks that
the only way to stop domestic vio-
lence is to educate people about it.
In the film, the women said that
neither the police nor the courts
were very helpful. Thomas said the
police and court in Pitt County are
now trying to improve efforts to help
battered women.
"The concept that our police
force have here in Pitt County, at
least from the top down, they are
talking the right talk and they are
trying to get the message out Tho-
mas said. "They are doing the right
things. They are having in service
training on domestic violence for the
p lice department. The district at-
torney just applied for a grant for
the victims of crimes to get a court
advocate to work exclusively with
victims of domestic violence
Any volunteers who want to
work with the shelter are asked to
call the number, 752-3811.

the night
"They need to be aware of their
surroundings, he the second victim) saw
one person in the azalea bushes not go-
ing anywhere maybe taking a different
route Taylor said. "At one or two in the
morning, a figure's a figure. Don't be in
such a hurry that you would go some-
where that you would risk going through
an area where you can see someone be-
fore you get there. If there's an alternate
route, it's just as well to take it"
The Fletcher victim felt that he
could have used more caution in walk-
ing home.
"It's a pretty scary thing and I made
a mistake that a lot of other people do
too he said. "I was walking by myself
and that's a big no-no and I knew that
but the area is heavily traveled and there's
always a lot of people down there so I
thought there was no way I would be
robbed
Taylor said the buddy system may
not always work.
"It's definitely a good deterrent to
have more than one person, but I'm not
going to guarantee anybody that two
people will prevent that from happening
Taylor said.
He said students should immedi-
ately pick up one of the emergency blue
light phones when they find themselves
in trouble. The Fletcher victim ran to the
safety of his room before notifying po-
lice.
"They had me on the ground with
a gun and they left when they saw people
were coming. I was kind of on my side
on the ground lying on one of the steps
he said. "I went home. It's not like I was
going to stay there and call from the
emergency box and just hang outside
The sooner the police are notified,
the more likely they are to apprehend
the criminals.
"We were already going to that area
because we had already been notified
about the Ringold incident" Taylor said.
"So possibly, if we had been notified
sooner, we could have been more lucky,
but there's no way to tell now that its
over
Although students can take precau-
tions, Taylor said crime cannot always
be avoided.
"I got a feeling this would have hap-
pened whether he was with somebody
or not" Taylor said. "Not unless there
was a large group I feel like if they
were bold enough to do it there on the
sidewalk underneath a light that they
were after some valuables there's no
telling how many people walked by be-
fore they picked this guy
The victim said the robbery was
unjustified because the suspects stole his
wallet which contained only his meal
card.
"There's no reason behind it be-
cause there was no money in the wallet
no ATM cards or anything like that" the
victim said.
He is planning to seek counseling
to help him with his fears of being robbed
again and to get the incident behind him.
"Everytime there's a person behind
me it doesn't matter who they are or
what time of day it is, I just can't deal
with that very well he said. "The first
time it happened I was with someone
else so I could pretty much share the
experience
Simmons on the other hand was
expecting it to happen one day.
"When I lived in Fayetteville, there
were some neighborhoods where that
would continuously happen everyday
Simmons said. "I knew it was going to
end up happening to me or someone I
know one of these days so it finally hap-
pened to me I just look at it as some-
thing that's going to happen to every-
body sooner or later
Despite the incidents over the
weekend, Taylor said crime has continu-
ally decreased sinct 1991. Only three
robberies were reported last year, but
Taylor said that number could be higher
because crimes are often classified in
different categories.
The robberies are not classified as
muggings
"Really there's no such thing as
mugging, there's armed robbery and
strong arm robbery Taylor said.
"Strong arm robbery would be if I came
up to you and wrestled your purse
away
Weapons must be involved for a
robbery to be classified as armed. Tay-
lor said the victim saw the silver of a
gun held to his head.
"We are available at night the po-
lice officers and student reserve offic-
ers with police radios, for transporta-
tion if someone is just totally uncom-
fortable coming from the freshman lot
or for whatever reason in getting from
point A to point B Taylor said.

Absorb a little bit of
culture at Pow Wow
Trent Giardino
Staff Writer
It's time to experience some cul-
ture for a change here in Greenville.
Fortunately, the folks at SGA and the
Minority Affairs Office are bringing
culture to ECU by sponsoring a Na-
tive American Pow Wow this weekend,
all day Saturday and Sunday starting
at 12 noon on the College Hill Field.
For those who are in the dark as
to what exactly a Pow Wow is all
about, you are now in luck. A Pow
Wow, put simply, is a gathering of
several tribes and organizations for
the purpose of dancing traditional
dances, singing, trading, socializing
and renewing old friendships. Basi-
cally, the Pow Wow will bring many
different aspects of the Native Ameri-
can culture to ECU for us to experi-
ence while we have fun.
Some of the festivities will in-
clude Native American drummers
along with both traditional and fancy
dancers from North Carolina and the
eastern United States. The dancers
will be fully dressed in their tribe out-
fits complete with headdress and
beautifully painted shields and feath-
ers. The drums are arranged in a circle
or semicircle while they rhythmically
pound the mesmerizing beats for the
dancers. Many different tribes will be
represented for the dances as well as

"There's a sucker bom every
minute P.T. Bamum had his fin-
ger on the pulse of the nation when
he uttered those words. His most
famous hoaxes, like the Piltdown
Man, the Fiji Mermaid and his fake
unicorn (alternately a horse or a
goat with a curious-looking hom
attached precariously to its head)
are only his grossest exploitations
of the public.
More subtle (and therefore less
famous) are the smaller swindles
he pulled off all the time. "This

When they complained, it was
calmly explained to the poor, un-
educated hicks that "egress" means
"exit so they had no right to bitch.
But that was 100 years ago.
These days we have international

ploitations look like the small

the singers. On Saturday at 2 p.m
Navajo singer Sharon Birch will be
performing during the lunch break.
Along with the performers, the
Pow Wow will have authentic Native
American crafts and food that will be
on display as well as for sale. Fine jew-
elry, dream catchers and clothing are
a few things that will be for sale
throughout the entire Pow Wow.
At last year's Pow Wow, even
some audience members were invited
to partake in the dancing, and every-
one had a good time. Just remember,
everyone is invited and welcome to
attend. It will not cost you anything
but your time, and consider it time
well-spent. So if you are interested in
the ways of the Native American cul-
ture or even if you're not, the Pow
Wow will be an enlightening experi-
ence for everyone For more details,

MAXX-imum oddity comes to MTV
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
Artwork courtesy Sam Kieth
Our hero wrestles (or is that plummets?) with Mr. Gone, the
rapist villain of The Maxx, the weirdest super hero comic ever
and now the latest addition to MTV's animation library.
If you're a fan of big purple su-
per heroes and Camille Paglia, then
The Maxx is the show for you!
The latest addition to MTV's
line of "hip" animated series runs
Monday nights on MTV Oddities.
Based on a relatively obscure comic
book, The Maxx is probably the
most intellectually stimulating
thing to run on MTV since well,
ever.
Those of you who have seen
the show may be wondering what I
mean. While weird and a little
creepier than your standard Empty-
Vee fare, the first two episodes were
hardly brain-stretchers. So far, it
seems to be a show about a home-
less guy who dresses like a skid-row
super hero and gets arrested for
beating up criminals. He has a
weird relationship with this
freelance social worker named
Julie, a devotee of right wing femi-
nist Camille Paglia.
Then there's these sequences
that flash to "the real Australia a
dangerous fantasy world that Maxx
calls the Outback. Strange crea-
tures inhabit this place, like the
Outback Slug (which can leap up
to a quarter-mile in the air, but
splats when it lands) and its natu-
ral enemy, the Crabbit (a bunny
with lobster eyes and crab claws).
Sure, you're thinking, that
stuff was funny, but intellectually
stimulating? Not bloody likely.
Well, you're right. So hr.The
Maxx hasn't seemed all that deep.
But I've read the comics, and be-
lieve me, things get deep really fast.
Chatting about Everything
Brandon Waddell
Staff Writer
Seldom is the occasion when a
band is signed to a major label record-
ing contract and the first task of the
record company is to re-release the
band's independent debut Such is the
case with the Washington, D.C. sex-
tet Everything, who have achieved
quite a following here in the Emerald
City. Everything's guitarist and
reedman Stephen Van Dam stated,
"We were extremely excited to be
picked up by Capricorn (Records) and
they liked Labrador (their 12- track
independent release) enough that they
made some very minor changes and
re-released it"
Everything is not only the band's
name, but also the best description of
their musical style and the band mem-
bers' musical influences. The band is
billed as "power funk" or "high en-
ergy groove but their sound is origi-
nal, swirling woodwinds and horns
with keyboards, guitars and percus-
sion with emphasis on the lyrics. Van
Dam continued, "Diversity is our
strong point. What is musical suicide
for most bands is what makes it work
for us
As far as the band's musical in-
fluences. Van Dam advises listeners
to "Draw a circle - a circle represent-
ing all different kinds of music. Those
are our influences; we've listened to
everything from classical music to
metal to Latino to African, jazz and
country. And that's only in the last
six months
The band members met at James
Madison University and formed their
group in 1989. Though they were play-
ing regularly at Radford, Virginia Tech
and places in D.C, they found it diffi-
cult to land gigs in their own stomp-
ing grounds of Harrisonburg. Since
then, Everything has evolved from a
college party band to the big (but not
that big) time. Everything has been
playing full time since 1992 and will
be headed west playing for five weeks
in the fall with the Dave Matthews
Band.
At any rate, Everything is tour-
ing heavily in support of the re-release
of Labrador and will be back at the
Attic on April 28. The show should
start around 10:30 or 11 p.m. and Van
Dam says, "We're looking forward to
playing an energetic two-hour set
CD. Reviews
Orb
Orbus Terrarum
Kris Hoffler
Staff Writer
Counting their live album, this
is the Orb's fourth release, which is
titled Orbus Terrarum. A literal
translation of the title from Latin is
"the whole world and that may tell
you something about the sound of
this release. The titles of the songs
See ORB page 15
Without giving too much away, just
let me suggest that you pay atten-
tion to detail. Every element intro-
duced so far, from Maxx's mask to
the Isz to the serial apist villain,
is connected to problems from
Julie's past that affect her current
mental state. Except maybe for the
Crabbit.
But enough ominous future
plot complications. The show looks
very nice. The animators have man-
aged to capture Maxx creator Sam
Kieth's art style just right, no mean
feat considering how detailed and
funky Kieth's art generally is. It's
all very dark and moody but
cartoonish at the same time.
Very little moves well, however;
the animation is MTV-cheap. I sure
hope the people at the top are mak-
ing enough cash off their little mu-
sic dictator empire, because they
sure aren't reinvesting much of it
into the shows they produce. Con-
sidering the uneven quality of the
animation, I assume The Maxx suf- j
fers from lack of funds.
While some scenes move pretty "
smoothly, others are choppy at III
best, and they use too many stills. '�
That is, they take still drawings and
move them around in front of back- jj
grounds. A scene with two police Jj
cars leaving an alley, for example,
is an obvious cheat that looks hor- III
rible.
That said, I must admit that
The Maxx crew makes the best of a ii
bad situation, and generally uses
the cheats to their advantage. A
scene of Maxx sliding down into the jj
fetal position in the back of a po
lice car plays very well, giving the
scene a weirdly queasy quality.
In fact, that's as good a descrip- �j
tion as any for The Maxx as a whole. �
It's a weirdly queasy mixture of hu- jjj
mor, horror and psychologicalso- J
cial philosophy. So tune in to MTV
Monday nights at 10 for The Maxx. �
It's an animated acid trip. 11!

Love is in the air for Depp and Brando
Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
Spring is in the air and love beats
in every heart A new romantic comedy
called Don Juan Demarco promises to
send viewers home with a sturdier beat
of the ol' cardiac muscle.
Don Juan Demarco stars Johnny
Depp as the title character in this film
of fantasy and passion. Don Juan
Demarco fashions himself to be the
suave hero of literature. He has fash-
ioned a complete history for himself
including an explanation for his father's
death and his mother's entry into a con-
vent Don Juan seduces women because
he truly loves them. At one point he
concedes to the woman he wants to
marry that he has made love to 1,052
women in his twenty-one years of life.
After seducing another female at
the Hotel Seville, Don Juan climbs atop
a billboard with the feigned threat to
end his life. He claims to want only to
die at the hands of the famous swords-
man, Don Francisco.
To his rescue comes the soon-to-
be-retired psychiatrist Jack Mickler
(Marlon Brando). Jack rides up to Don
Juan in an elevated carriage used to
paint billboards and explains that he is
Don Octavio de Flores, the uncle of Don
Francisco. Carefully Jack helps Don Juan
into the elevated carriage and they both
return safely to the ground. Don Juan
then promptly gets committed to the
state mental institute for evaluation.
Jack takes over Don Juan's case
while Don Juan takes over Jack's life.
Jack, as is claimed by the head of the
psychiatric division, has been handling
patients "by the numbers" for the past
year. Jack has been bumed out Amidst
this bumout comes a fanciful patient
who makes Jack fall in love with hjs wife
Marilyn (Faye Dunaway) all over again.
Don Juan's tales of bliss make Jack want
to grab onto life with all his might The
flights of fancy that Don Juan spins
catch Jack's (and the audience's) atten-
tion.
Every time Don Juan relates part
of his story to Jack the film flashes back
to some Hollywood setting in Mexico
or Arabia or the tropical island of Eros.
The power of Don Juan's tales makes
the story come as alive for Jack as it
does for the audience.

Writer-director Jeremy Leven al-
lows his tale of whimsical love to un-
fold at a languid pace. He tries to en-
snare the viewer with the seductive
charm of his film in exactly the same
way that Don Juan tries to seduce
women. The tone of the film is pure
Hollywood romance. Leven wants the
viewer to be seduced by the power of
Don Juan's fantasy. I do not think Leven
is advocating a life of delusional gran-
deur but he is suggesting that every-
one could use a touch more fantasy in
their daily lives.
Leven partly succeeds in his task.
Don Juan Demarco certainly tries dili-
gently to convey the fantastical history
of the title character. But in trying to
do so the film loses touch with the real
subjects of the film, Jack and Marilyn.
When Jack and Marilyn appear on the
screen together the film becomes a
genuinely engaging tale of how eu-
phoric feelings can be played out in ev-
eryday life.
Jack sits listening to Don Juan the
opera while Marilyn looks quizzically oa
Jack and Marilyn lay naked in bed try-
ing to catch popcorn in their mouths.
Jack talks very seriously to Marilyn in
their garden about her hopes and de-
sires. These scenes involving the couple
touch the viewer's soul and help to color
real-life relationships. A viewer could
take the lessons of Jack and Marilyn and
apply them to his or her own life.
But the fantasy sequences involv-
ing Don Juan dominate the film and
sap some of the film's strength. Inter-
esting for a time, the fantasies become
dull when dragged on. The viewer
quickly senses the effect that the fanta-
sies have on Jack. The curiosity then
becomes how Jack will apply those fan-
tasies in his own life, not how many fan-
tasies Don Juan can create.
. Johnny Depp does a great job in
his role. He brings out the same oddly
romantic aura with him that he has ex-
uded in other films including What's
Eating Gilbert Grape, Edward
Scissorhands and Ed Wood. With his
suave words and sensitive nature the
audience can actually feel Depp's power
on the screen.
Marlon Brando acts admirably well.
He has become such an icon that see-
ing him in a role is somewhat difficult
He will always be Marlon Brando.
Brando's best work recently was when
he parodied his Godfather role (and, by
extension, himself) in The Freshman.
Still, Brando does know how to act and
he brings a human touch to his role.
Faye Dunaway needed to be more in-
volved in the film but still does a fine
job with the limited amount of screen
time she gets.

The East Carolinian
Big Head boys rule Easterfest
Steve Griffin
Staff Writer
It was an Easter to remember.
The Easterfest concert was held at
the Wilmington airfields on Sunday in
front of a crowd of over 10.000 people.
The headlining bands were Big Head
Todd & The Monsters and the Dave
Matthews Band and they put on a fan-
tastic show on a great day in
Wilmington.
Big Head Todd was the second
band to play behind a lesser-known
band, the Boxing Ghandis. Big Head
Todd opened up with an old favorite
called "Bittersweet" from their 1993
album Sister Sweetly. This was a famil-
iar song to everyone in the crowd and
the thousands loved the extended ver-
sion they played Sunday.
The Big Head boys then played
some songs from their new album.
"Strategem The songs sounded even
better outside at the Easterfest with
Todd and crew jamming out that dis-
tinctive sound as hard as ever.
One of the best played songs of the
whole day was when Big Head Todd
played Led Zeppelin's "Tangerine They
have become popular for pk.ying this
song at many shows and seemed to per-
fect it live.
The headlining act, the Dave
Matthews Band, always seem to sound
great live. They started in the late after-
noon and would be the last band of the
day. This is the band that most people
came to see, given their recent rise to
be one of the top bands in the country.
The band played on Saturday Night
Live the night before the show, a per-
formance which delayed Easterfest to
Easter Sunday itself.
Dave Matthews describes their suc-
cess by saying, "It's basically been a
matter of word-of-mouth; people liking
what they have seen and bringing some
friends with them the next time
around Well there must have been a
lot of friends at the show Sunday be-
cause the crowd sang right along with
Matthews every tune he played.
The band started off with some
songs off their first album, Remember
Two Things, which has sold over
130,000 copies since its fall 1993 re-
lease. The band then went into some
songs off their new album. Under The
Table and Dreaming. The favorites
seemed to be the songs "Ants March-
ing which is an upbeat happy song,
and "Satellite which shows the band's
more melodic side.
The only downside to the show was
Health Minute
Milk, cheese and exercise
help build strong bones
Irene Mace
ECU School of Medicine
Many Americans don't have
enough calcium in their diet. Over
the years, lack of calcium causes
bones to become so thin that they
just snap in two under the weight of
the body. Before age 30, we need
calcium to build strong bones. After
age 30, we need calcium to prevent
bone loss. If you don't get enough
calcium in your diet you may need
to take calcium tablets.
Prevention is important and
should begin as early as the teen-age
years:
Exercise at least three times a
week - walking, running, weight lift-
ing or any sport involving walking
or running.
Make sure you have enough
calcium in your diet. New guidelines
recommend more calcium than be-
fore. Adult men and women need
1000 mg a day (three and one half
cups of milk or four ounces of
cheese).
Teenagers, pregnant women
and women after menopause need
1500 mg a day (five cups of milk or
seven and one half ounces of cheese).
Ask your doctor about estro-
gen replacement after menopause to
help protect against bone loss.

waited in long lines to get tickets and I
was told by manv that they missed the

Maybe the bands can come up with a
better system for distributing tickets for
these kind of shows. Other than this,
Easterfest more than fufilled its prom-

better. The exploration of Jack and
Marilyn's marriage would have accen-
tuated the real benefit that fantasies can
have. The film still conveys much of the
desired effect, though. I left the theater
feeling elated in an offbeat sort of way.
The magic of cinema does work in Don
Juan Demarvo and may even lead you
to fall in love with someone all over
again.
There couldn't be a better time of
year to fall in love. After all, spring is in
the air.
On a scale of one to ten, Don Juan
Demarco rates a six.
ORB
from page 11
are clues as well. This album is the re-
turn home after their first two ethereal
releases Adventures in the L Itraworld
and .F. Orb. This time, the Orb comes
down to earth.
The Orb was formed by one half of
the KLF. Dr. Alex Peterson and Jimmy
Cauty. who began to take techno off
the dance floor and into your house tor
the wee-hours-of-the-moming. post-
party, crash-pad vibe where the only
thing left to do is "come down Their
first two albums produced some unlikely
chart topping singles: "Little Fluffy
Clouds" and the definitive ambient
single "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsat-
ing Brain that Rules from the Center of
the Universe
It is exceedingly difficult to explain
the sound of The Orb if you have never
heard them. It is basically electronic
music that sounds very organic. The
songs are often laced with slow but
heavy dance beats, sort of like groovy
house music but at a lower velocity. It's
not really danceable. but you may find
yourself bobbing your head to the subtle
but infectious beats. On top of that. Dr.
Peterson weaves a tapestry of altered
sound bites, sheets of synthesizer
drones, bleeps and blips, traffic and na-
ture sounds and just about anything
that proves to be unconventional and
interesting. This is about as far from
rock and roll as you can get
Their first few albums were cen-
tered around atmospheric sounds par-
tially described by the song's titles. The
Orb traveled above the earth in the
clouds and out into the broad expanse
of the universe. But this release is to be
different; the Orb is coming down for
an earth landing. "I'm taking the Orb
back to earth says Patterson. "The
place is industrial, noisy and definitely
not ambient in the Eno Harold Budd
sense of the world
It seems as if Dr. Peterson has re-
turned to minimalism, allowing struc-
tures to occur organically without cen-
soring textures that aren't always har-
monious and ethereal. "Some people
will call this aggressive he says. "I never
intended anything except for elements
to surface as they may
Orbus Terrarum is a descent to and
exploration of our home planet the
song titles give clues to the ideas ex-
plored here. Titles like 'Valley "Pla-
teau" and "White River Junction' are
good descriptions of the sound textures
created. The tracks can't really be ex-
plained in critical terms, which is why
you will not find song descriptions in
this review. If I had to make a compari-
son, such names as Brian Eno and Pink
Floyd would come to mind, but even
that falls short of giving a good descrip-
tion. The Orb is the Orb; it's something
you must hear to understand.
If you're not into the rave or dance
scene, there is a chance you may like
this anyway. It's really good studying,
chilling out or driving music for the
masses. This may seem like an uninfor-
mative review, but the Orb's sound is not
easy to put down in words. It's some-
thing you need to hear in ord' r to really
make a judgment If you're looking for
something a little different the Orb's
Orbus Terrarum will more than satisfy.

How did this happen? Remember
Bamum's rule about suckers. Conflict-
ing reports went out to the media and
the dumbed-down American public
got confused. This case required us
to weigh both sides of the issue and
make up our minds. Instead, we
grunted, scratched our collective
crotch and switched over to Melrose
Place.
Granted, the case dragged on for
months, and the media was manipu-
lated horribly. Every quote-hungry
reporter in Washington was appar-
ently thrown a scrap or two, and if
one official contradicted himself three
times a day, all the better. Confuse
the pur lie. and they'll go away, suck-
ers to the grave. This way to the
egress.
Of course, blood and circuses go
down pretty smoothly with us, too.
Remember the woman who claimed
her kids burned down her trailer be-
cause Beavis said that fire is cool? The
media tried and convicted the cartoon
moron immediately, and MTV pulled
all the fire references from the show.
What you probably don't remem-
ber is that the woman lied. After the
dust had cleared in the media, the
police investigation revealed that the
woman's husband had started the fire
while free-basing cocaine. Beavis was
innocent. But that wasn't given the
coverage of the lie. and Beavis still
can't give vent to his pyromaniac rage.
I won't even mention OJ.
Face it. people, we're suckers! As
a culture we've gotten stupid and lazy,
and we're being taken to the cleaners
for it. It's a P.T. Bamum world out
there, folks, and we need to wake up
to that fact
Information is power. Repeat that
every' day. Information is power. Ei-
ther you manipulate information, or
it manipulates you. The next time you
hear double-talk, grab yourself a knife
and start cutting. Find whatever
pearls of truth that lurk in that
report's heart and hold on to them.
This is not paranoia. It's a fact of life.
This way to the egress.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 13)
Looks like a fine day to wield some power. Put on
your power socks, your power shirt; eat a power
lunch. Tell someone special to jump and see what
happens. Of course, your next step is coercion.
Spring Break has a surprise in store, and, as usual,
timing is crucial.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Someone has tapped-danced all over your heart
with steel-tipped;cowt6y boots. Put together a
care package for yourself. Include: Tissues,
chocolate, pulp novel, George Dickel, and a small
wax effigy of your once-beloved (impaled in those
hard-to-reach places, with little pins).
Aries (Mar 21- April 19)
You'll break out of that padded cell and back into
the absurd world. Humor will work for you (not
against you, as it has in the past). Avoid food with
bones in it this Spring Break, and you'll be
absolutely fine.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Today Taurus is charmed by an older individual. A
teacher becomes your mentor, Taurus, and it's all
you can do not to tape the lecture and swoon later.
You find that your studies become much more
interesting. Naturally, you give nothing away.
Gemini (May 21- June 21)
You'll accept no substitutes today. You'll be waiting
for the real thing. No Nutrasweet, no euphemisms,
no polite nods, no empty invitations. This may
mean a long wait�So, in the meantime, you may
find yourself graduating, settling down, raising a
family, and subscribing to Reader's Digest.
Cancer (June 22- July 22)
Retreat, retreat! Give up, surrender, go home,
capitulate, wave the white flag. Neither rhyme nor
reason is on your side today. Shaking your fist at
the sky isn't going to do you any good. Humbling
yourself will not help. All sorts of nonsense plagues
you. Don't fight it. Succumb and wait for tomorrow.

Leo (July 23- Aug. 22)
Today, Leo is approached by people who are
"looking for an open mind Realize that this is never

minded" by threshing them aside as if they were
troublesome weeds.
Virgo (Aug. 23- Sept. 22)
You blow your nose with gusto today. Virgo spends
the day walking around, adding special little
flourishes to the mundane. When you scratch your
head, people are impressed. You write Post-it notes
that people will treasure forever. You'll produce the
dizzying heights in cole slaw.
Libra (Sept. 23- Oct. 23)
Someone has tapped-danced all over your ego with
steel-tipped cowboy boots. Put together a care

peacock-feather fan, and a bunch of peeled,

Today, Scorpio feels its time to start a vacation.
This makes your intuitive powers almost flawless.
You find clues in subliminal messages. This is also
a fine day to call some one's bluff without being in
any physical danger afterward.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21- Pec. 21)
You think iike a cat today. A little mystique here,
some affection thereand certainly a little well-
deserved laziness is in your future. Bask. Roll on
your side, purr, stretch your claws. Anyone ruffling
your coat will be sorry.
Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 19)
You rol1 out the red carpet today, and someone
reciprocates. For once, "doing unto others" is

Pirate star guard Skipp Schaefbauer has been rumored to
be looking elsewhere to continue his basketball career.
Brian Paiz
Staff Writer
On Tuesday the St. Paul Pio-
neer Press in St. Paul, Minnesota
reported that ECU rising junior
guard Skipp Schaefbauer will be vis-
iting two universities in the inter-
ests of continuing his collegiate bas-
ketball career if he indeed does leave
ECU as expected. As reported by
TEC last Thursday, Schaefbauer re-
ceived his letter of release from the
ECU athletic department on April
11.
Illinois State of the Missouri
Valley Conference and South Ala-
bama of the Sun Belt conference are
the schools that Schaefbauer report-
edly has interest in. Both are NCAA
Division 1 schools, meaning that he
would have to sit out one season
under NCAA regulations.
ECU played Illinois State last
season, defeating the Redbirds in
Greenville 64-57. South Alabama,
located in Mobile, is coached by
former Minnesota Timberwolves
head coach Bill Musselman, who was
hired to take over the Jaguar bas-
ketball program on March 16.
Schaefbauer could not be
reached for comment.
In other ECU basketball news,
head coach Joe Dooley and the Pi-
rates lost a major recruiting battle
to UNC-W on Tuesday, when Mike
Gibbs, a 6-foot-9 forward from Clay
High School in Green Cove Springs,
Fla. signed with the Seahawks.
Gibbs was recruited by several
Atlantic Coast Conference and
Southeastern Conference schools.

mmmmmi iiiiimwimiiniiiiii iiiiiwiiimiiini�i
It's Valentines Day, a time of ro-
mance and love, a time when love af-
fairs embrace into a moment of pas-
sion. There was another love affair
that was taking place, a love and a
passion so deep that it continues to
grow even after 31 years - an unex-
plainable public admirance towards
the largest-selling magazine called the
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
It only covers an estimated
amount of 50 million readers (which
is one in four adults in the United
States), compared to an average of 22
million readers per week for Sports
Illustrated.
Imagine placing yourself for four
months in one of the top major cor-
porations, possessing one of the best-
selling magazines in the nation and
then throw in the willingness to sur-
vive and struggle through 25-degree
New York mornings five days a week
just to get to work at 9 a.m. and vol-
untarily work until 7 or 8 p.m. Some
have commended it, others thought
it foolish.
Here 1 am, a hyper, happy-go-
lucky southern girl with a take-on-the-
world attitude. I took time off from
school at ECU and flew from
Greenville to take a bite out of the
Big Apple.
While I was there my first few
days at SI, I was completely absorbed
with continuous work. I was grabbed
by the collar and tossed right in. I had
no choice but to leam - and learn
quick. It was during the time of Ne-
braska and Penn State commemora-
tive issue, celebrating a team champi-
onship season.
The infamous Sport Illustrated
Swimsuit Issue was right around the
corner. That meant that there was
going to be a lot to look forward to,
such as planning the swimsuit party,

completing the swimsuit press kit,
notifying the media across the nation
and making phone call after phone
call to promote the event.
I didn't realize that this was the
time that I would be establishing a
day-by-day phone relationship with
countless editors, producers and SI
writers. My first few times on the
phone was spent wiping the sweat
from the palms of my hand.
The promotional, power-driving
force behind the Sports Illustrated
Swimsuit event is the reputable com-
munications department of SI, which
is under the direction of the much-
admired Art Berke, who is responsible
for all public relations, publicity and
charity activities for Sports Illus-
trated. Sports Illustrated for Kids and
Sports Illustrate Television.
Like all leaders they must have
proteges and Art Berke's members
include two unique and extraordinary
individuals, Christine Cortez and Dave
Mingey and Publicity Director Roger
Jackson.
From time to time I was given
assignments by SI staff members, but
my toughest came from Mingey a 24-
year-old ambitious publicist. This
young Boston College graduate, cap-
tain of his college Crew team is a fist-
pounding, get-the-job-done leader,
who walks in a expeditious-pace, ac-
companied by a implacable expres-
sion. His intense nature and aggres-
siveness has placed him where he is
today. Mingey has already felt the
pressure of working at SI but he feels
it is worth all of hi: effort .
"I never realized the power of SI
and how well it's a brand name he
said.
His eagerness to come in first
thing in the morning and stay until
11 p.m. has enabled him to keep with
up the competitive world of sports.
If I could commend the efforts
of the SI Communications staff I
would, but that is not good enough
to describe the measures that they go
through, whether it be in publicizing
See INSIDE page 21
Well, another year has come and
gone here at Stepping Stone Uni-
versity. The land where careers are
started and farewell tears flow like
Greenville kegs.
This athletic season was the
grand hurrah for our Director of
Athletics, along with our men's and
women's basketball coaches, but in-
stead of harping on our past losses,
I'm going to try to look toward the
future.
The job of our soon-to-be-named
Director of Athletics will be easier
in some places than in others. A
multi-year football contract with
ESPN and a new basketball arena
will give the new A.D. plenty to work
with while carrying on the torch left
by Dave Hart
Here's an end-of-the-year
progress report on some of our ath-
letic teams at ECU.
Two teams often overlooked but
extremely successful are the Pirate
and Lady Pirate swim teams. The
women's team only regular-season
loss was in their final meet against
UNC. The Lady Pirate swimmers,
under head coach Rick Kobe, went
on to tie JMU for the CAA champi-
onship. This swim program will give
the new AD few sleepless nights if
they keep winning like they do.
The baseball program, under
the best coach that ECU has, Gary
Overton, is also in good shape for
our new AD. Although this season
seriously pales in comparison to
most years on the diamond of
Harrington Field, the team is young
and promising.
The basketball team will prob-
ably have the biggest change of any
other sport in this school. The new
AD will have new head coach Joe
Dooley taking over a solid team left
by Eddie Payne. The probable loss
of Skipp Schaefbauer might have to
put a crunch on extra recruiting.
It's a good thing that Greenville
is not a huge, mass-media market.
This will give the young Dooley some
much-needed breathing room to get
himself established as a head coach.
Let's face it, the basketball team
could finish in fourth place in the
CAA every season and the fans and
media of eastern North Carolina
would be pretty much content with
the situation.
It will be very important early
on for Dooley and the new AD to
work well together. Although the
CAA was down talent-wise last sea-
son, there are always four or five
teams capable of taking the confer-
ence crown, and hopefully ECU will
continue to be one of those teams.
Steve Logan answered his crit-
ics on the football field last season
by taking his team to the Liberty
Bowl. The upcoming schedule has
some huge obstacles. especiatyroTT

The East Carolinian
Montana hangs up the cleats in San Francisco
(API-Joe Montana didn't retire
because of his wife's nagging or Kan-
sas City coach Marty
Schottenheimer's tough practices or
the slim chances of getting to an-
other Super Bowl, or anything to do
with advancing age or declining abil-
ity.
For all the pundits who tossed
around reasons why he quit, or
should have quit sooner. Montana
offered his own answer Tuesday. It
was as simple and direct as the passes
he so often threw for touchdowns.
"I reached the point where the
day comes and you wake up and you
realize it Montana said. "It just
came upon me all of a sudden. I
wasn't as fired up about working out.
1 just wasn't looking forward to it as
much. There were signs that said
things aren't the same any more.
T just didn't think this is the
way it would happen because I didn't
think I would ever lose my passion
for the game that gave so much to
me. 1 just lost the drive to do what is
necessary to compete in the NFL.
And when you do that, it's time to
step away. It's not something where
you can play halfheartedly
The timing of the announce-
ment, a few days before the NFL
draft, was not coincidental. He
wanted to give the Chiefs a chance
to get a quality replacement through
free agency or the draft, and he
wanted to free up the $2.4 million in
salary he would have been paid this
season.
Montana beamed throughout
the heady afternoon like a man lib-
erated. The decision he had labored
over for so long was made. He no
longer had to worry about the fears
he and his family harbored that he
might somehow wind up crippled. He
could turn his attention now to the
easy life: playing golf, coaching his
kids, flying his airplane and backing
an Indy car team.
His fans took the retirement
much more emotionally than he did,
which was no surprise. Montana
didn't lead the San Francisco 49ers
to four Super Bowls by letting his
emotions run wild.
Tens of thousands of fans came
to say thanks and good-bye. to chant
"One more year and to shout, laugh
and cry.
If ever a love affair had grown
between a city and an athlete, San
Francisco and Joe Montana had such
a relationship. And today in Kansas
City, his brief fling with that city was
to end with another heartfelt fare-
well at Arrowhead Stadium.
"It was so overwhelming Mon-
tana said of the San Francisco
throng. "They talked about 5,000 to
10,000 people, but there were so
many more. I literally was shocked
when I looked out and saw the re-
sponse. But when I think about it, I
don't know what would make it any
different, because the one thing
that's been real steady over the years
has been the fans Here.
"I'm usually one to take the
quiet road and walk away. But I'm
glad I did it. Because those people
out there were what enabled me to
get here

Dame to the San Francisco 49ers to
the Kansas City Chiefs, Montana

The East Carolinian
Canseco pickets with striking baseball umpires
(AP) - Jose Canseco has a
knack for drawing attention.
This time, the Boston Red Sox
slugger used that ability to help
draw attention to major league um-
pires.
The locked-out umpires were
attracting little attention with their
informational picketing until
Canseco hung a sign around his
neck and joined them.
All of the sudden, there was a
crowd. And Canseco said Sunday he
hopes his gesture will help send the
replacement umpires the way of re-
placement players.
"I would love to have an im-
pact he said. "The game has to
be complete
Eight umpires walked the
picket lines before Boston's game
against Texas. They wore signs that
said "Scabs Go Home" and "Major
League Umpires are Locked Out
and handed out leaflets that began
"We love the great game of Base-
ball
"The players are the game and
they deserve the right to showcase
their enormous talent in a scab-free
playing environment the leaflet
said. "Their performance will surely
suffer as a result of inferior offici-
ating
Canseco said he didn't know
the umpires would be picketing
until he got a message in the club-
house from AL umpire John
Hirschbeck. a friend whom he has
worked with on charity events. So
the Red Sox designated hitter and
designated attention-getter came
out of the clubhouse to help out.
"I knew he'd come out
Hirschbeck said. "It goes to show
you right there that one of the
prime players in the game is stand-
ing behind us. The bottom line is
we're all professionals. The same
way thai we don't want scab play-
ers out there, they don't want scab
umpires
Canseco, believed to be the
first big leaguer to walk the picket
line with the umpires, said spend-
ing eight months on strike helped
him appreciate the umpires' plight.
"You always argue balls and
strikes in the heat of the moment.
This is different he said. "You're
talking about people's livelihoods
Exhibition games have been go-
ing on with replacement umpires
since the beginning of spring train-
ing, when owners began using re-
placement players.
Former major and minor
league umps, along with college
and high school amateurs, are call-
ing the games. A similar group is
set to work starting on opening day
on April 25 if the major league
umpires and owners do not settle.
"You saw what the game was
like without the real players
Canseco told the autograph seek-
ers who surrounded him. "It's go-
ing to be the same thing without
the real umpires
Umpires are asking for a 53
percent raise during four years.
Owners have offereu about 12 per-
cent. Also, the umpires want to be
paid more for working twice as
many playoff games because of
baseball's new divisional format.
Many managers and players
have complained about the quality
of the umpiring this spring. Red
Sox manager Kevin Kennedy com-
plained about several blown calls
in Saturday's game � even some
that went in his favor.
"They're out of position. They
don't know where to go Voltaggio
said. "It's really not their fault.
They're not professional umpires
Hirschbeck was less under-
standing.
"It's terrible, just like they
are he said. "They're scabs. They
can't do our jobs. They couldn't
make it to the big leagues. They all
got fired and now they think I
don't know. If it's money, then
they're prostituting themselves

Two finalists for the position
ot athletics director at East Caro-
lina University have been invited to
campus for interviews next week,
officials said April 13.
The candidates are Eric
Hyman, executive associate athlet-
ics director at North Carolina Uni-
versity, and Mike Hamrick director
of athletics at the University of
Arkansas at Little Rock.
Richard Brown, vice chancellor
for business affairs and chair of the
search committee, said the candi-
dates will meet with Chancellor Ri-
chard Eakin, the search committee,
members of the athletics staff and
representatives of the Pirate Club.
Hyman will be in Greenville on
April 19 and Hamrick on April 20.
Brown said 53 candidates were
in the pool for the ECU position,
which became available when Dave
Hart became athletics director of
Florida State University in March.
ECU hopes to name a new director
of athletics by may 1, Brown said.
James Madison sophomore An-
drew Gordon scattered four hits
over seven innings, as the Dukes
defeated East Carolina 6-1 in the
nightcap of a doubleheader at
Harrington Field Saturday evening.
JMU won the first game 8-1.
Catcher Greg Bulheller got the
Dukes started in the second inning
with his third homerun of the sea-
son, a solo shot to give JMU a 1-0
lead. Right fielder Chad Cinder
would extend the lead to 3-0 on a
two-run shot in the third inning, his
first of the season, while ECU last
minute starter Bob Wharton suf-
fered the loss and dropped to 0-4
on the season.
ECU got on the scoreboard in
the seventh inning, as Chad
Puckett drove in Randy Rigsby with
a sacrifice fly to ruin Gordan's shut-
out bid.
JMU, now 32-12 on the season
(11-3 in CAA play) broke open a 2-
1 game in the top of the seventh
inning sending ten batters to the
plate in the first game. Jeff Hafer
raised his record to 5-0 on the sea-
son, while Patrick Dunham suffered
his first collegiate loss and dropped
to 4-1. Cinder drove in three runs,
while Jay Johnson drove in two
more runs to propel JMU to victory.
With the Dues up 2-0, the Pi-
rates got within one run in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning as Travis
Meyer drove in Brian Yerys. Yerys
got on board with a two-out triple,
the first of the year.
JMU's Kevin Nehring set a new
school record for doubles in a
single season hitting his 19th of the
season in the seventh inning.
The Pirates are now 25-15 on
the season.
The CAA women's tennis cham-
pionships concluded April 15, with
ECU's Lady Pirates finishing fifth

which defeated the Pirates in regu-
lar season play by a 7-1 score.

The Seahawks battled hard, but fell
short to the Lady Pirates by a 5-2
score. The match was decided when
the doubles tandem of Courtney
Hargett and Cohen won 6-4, 6-4, to
give the lady netters the needed
five wins.

was named the Men's Outstanding
Performer at the 1995 Colonial Ath-
letics Association Track and Field

events, sophomore Brian Johnson
was the only Pirate to take medal-
ist awards, finishing first in the 200
Meters with a time of 21.88. In the
400 Meters, sophomore Dwight
Henry's season best time of 47.40
was unabie to repeat his 1994
Championship performance, falling
to George Mason's Paul Henry who
posted a time of 46.49. In the 100
Meters, junior walk-on Chris
Pressley was impressive, however
finished fourth with a time of
11.43.

broke the school outdoor record in
the high jump with a leap of
5'06.0 This jump earned her
fourth place in the event.

second in the triple jump with a
mark of 39'02.25 Wilson also
broke an ECU outdoor record.
ECU's Cameron Bader broke a
school record in the 400 HH with

rates improved to 39-19 on the sea-
son Tuesday afternoon with a 3-2,
6-4 sweep of UNC Chapel Hill. The
Lady Tar Heels fell to 24-30 over
all.
In the first half of the double
header, ECU took an early 1-0 lead
in the first when Rhonda Rost
homered to left field. It was her
third homerun of the season. Rost
was 2-3 with three RBI. Heather
Smith and Sharolyn Strickland
scored ECU's other runs in the fifth
inning. Smith was 1-2 and
Strickland was 2-3. Also for the
Lady Pirates, Dana Lewis was 2-3

From the mound, East
Carolina's Jami Bendle improved to
18-6 while allowing two runs off
four hits and striking out one UNC
batter. Angie Gill earned the loss
for North Carolina. In five innings
she allowed three runs off seven
hits and walked two before being
relieved by Jennifer Shelton.
In the second game, UNC domi-
nated the game before four errors
in the sixth allowed ECU to take
the 6-4 lead that would give them
the victory. Jamie Shaver, Sharon
Kohan, Christine Kubin and Angie
Gill scored for UNC. Kutzin tripled
in the first to bring home Shaver
and Kohan.
Tonya Oxendine, who was 2-4

necessary for ECU to establish them-
selves as a legitimate Division I pro-
gram, which they most certainly are.
The brightest spot on Logan's

The programs that are going to
need some immediate attention are
the soccer and women's basketball
teams, who have been in the bottom

time now. With the women's basket
ball team. Anne Donovan will enter
her first season at ECU with a couple
of starting seniors returning and some
young talent, and hopefully the woe-
ful days ot old will he long gone.
The soccer team needs to make
some changes. Moving from last place
to first place in just one year obviously
won't happen, but the Pirate soccer
team has been in last place in the CAA
for much too long. If progress isn't
made soon, chances are ECl soccer
might be a thing of the past.
Kind of like the Army, ECU is a
great place to start. Where you go
fi om here and what happens can be a
vastly different story especially when
your thrown into the spotlight of a
big-time conference. Just ask Bill
Lewis.

The East Carolinian
Our View

wmwommmmm
. �
it
n.
The year is over,
and what a year
it was. For those
of us who won't
be here next
year, there will
be a lot to come
back and visit.
For as many new
buildings and
additions ECU
gained, an
administrator or
key figure was
lost. Life at ECU
continues, with
its ups and its
downs. Thank
goodness for
Barefoot, right?
As if another year has flown by and with all the many
accomplishments and highlights that the ECU campus has
experienced, our wonderful campus with both a great faculty
and student population have been a part of history.
We have had that terrific hnor of playing out another year
in East Carolina's history. As we take a look back at a year that
saw ECU take itself out of obscurity and place itself in the
national spotlight (i.e. Dave Hart's exodus and the football team
bowling in Memphis), we need to take into account all of the
major events that both ECU and Greenville have shared.
If it was any indication that our vice-chancellor for aca-
demic affairs had left to take on responsibilities in New York,
then maybe the ECU administration should have made plans
to see others depart too. Besides Marleen Springer, ECU lost a
lot of notoriety when men like Dave Hart, Jr. left for Florida
State, and Eddie Payne abandoned ship for Oregon. With all
of the rumors that Chancellor Eakin was in the hunt for the
presidency job in Louisville, the whole ECU community was
waiting patiently, hoping that he would not cap off the year's
already blustery affairs.
However, there are some good things that did happen to
ECU, besides us saving our chancellor. The progress can be
seen many of the campus improvements. Our Minges Coliseum
was constructed on time, and was able to hold January 6,1995
as its first active use by both the women's and the men's teams.
Our Joyner Library, which is currently under construction, has
seen drastic improvement as it is slated to be opened and fur-
nished as the Phase I part will be complete in December 1995.
Also, our recreational center, which is supposed to be the best
facility in the eastern half of the state, is due to be fully func-
tioning by December 1995.
Even though some of our athletic teams have propelled
into the media spotlight- the football team headed to the Lib-
erty Bowl, the men's basketball team battled Old Dominion on
ESPN2, the future for ECU athletics looks as shiney as the
gold on our Pure Gold Dancers' beautiful uniforms, who hap-
pened to strut their stuff with the Cheerleaders just two short
weeks ago in Orlando, Fla. For a year that saw much improve-
ment from the money making sports, some of our club sports
found prestige away from the spotlight. Our awesome rugby
and ultimate frisbee teams, who took the state and national
championships last year, have proved that maybe they should
become a Division I sport
To actually detail the amount of people, ideas, and experi-
ences fhat you have engaged in here at ECU this year would
be too much for us to even understand. That is why this year,
for those of you that can still remember what happened (all
those late night parties), it is important for you as students,
faculty, and administration to go forth with what you have
learned and experienced this year and carry memories with
you (especially the graduating seniors).
Worry about America
L
Not too long ago, when news re-
ports showed the corpse of an Ameri-
can service member being dragged
through the streets of Somalia, I started
to wonder why we were involved in the
UN. Not wanting to base my judgment
on these incidents, 1 did some research
on a subject near and dear to my heart,
basic rights. I researched the UN's ver-
sion of Human Rights as compared to
the American of rights. The compari-
son of the two yielded results that but-
tressed the doubts 1 already held.
According to our Declaration of In-
dependence, "all Men are endowed
by their Creator with certain unalien-
able Rights To insure that there would
be no confusion as to what they were,
these rights were enumerated in the first
ten amendments of our Constitution;
these are known as the Bill of Rights.
The American system of rudimen-
tary rights - free speech, bearing arms,
assembly - argues that they are inher-
ent to the individual. As our history
shows, these rights can be suppressed;
however, the "unalienable Rights" that
we enjoy are impossible to take away,
and furthermore, are not to be given
out by politicians to the people.
Nevertheless, many of my fellow
countrymen mistakenly believe that the
Bill of Rights bestows upon them basic
rights and privileges. The Constitution
does not give one right to Americans.
In fact the Constitution was construed
to do nothing more than restrain gov-
ernment from tampering with our in-
alienable rights. Thomas Jefferson: "In
questions of power, let no more be said
of confidence in man, but bind him
down from mischief by the chains of
the Constitution What made the
founding of our nation so remarkable
�MHH

was that the system of American law
was formed to restrain government not
the people.
When juxtaposed next to our Bill
of Rights, the United Nation's Interna-
tional Covenants on Human Rights dis-
plays enormous discrepancies. First of
all, there is no recognition of God by
the United Nations. This raises the ques-
tion of where, according to the ON, do
rights come from? Contrary' to the
American system, the UN asserts that
rights come from government and con-
sequently, can just as well be taken back
by government
Article 18 of the UN's "International
Covenant on Civil and Fblitical Rights"
states that "Everyone shall have the right
to freedom of thought conscience and
religion. This right shall include freedom
to have or to adopt a religion or belief of
his choice and freedom, either individu-
ally or in community with others and in
public or private, to manifest his religion
or belief in worship, observance, prac-
tice and teaching
The aforesaid sounds quite palat-

able. But Article 18 goes on to say. "Free-
dom to manifest one's religion or be-
liefs may be subject to such limitations
as are prescribed by law and are nee-
essary In other words, the UN re-
serves the right to limit or take away re-
ligious freedom if it happens to get in
the way of its management of world af-
fairs.
Every UN acknowledgment of a
right - speech, press, assembly, etc �
is echoed with a reservation that these
freedoms may "be subject to certain re-
strictions such as are provided by law
and are necessary
Eerily, the UN's idea of Human
Rights follows the same pattern set by
the former USSR under Stalin. In the
former communist country, where rights
and privileges were acknowledged in
their constitution, with the option of
cancellation maintained, few were actu-
ally enjoyed.
We should bear this strange di-
chotomy in mind as we increasingly be-
come entangled in UN ventures abroad.
In June 1992, B.B. Ghali announced that
the "time of absolute and exclusive sov-
ereignty has passed Continuing, he
added that UN military force should be
used to address domestic makers within
any nation. This should send a fair warn-
ing to all.
We must align our global interests
with great caution. Obviously, the UN
would like nothing more than to replace
our Bill of Rights with their version of
human rights. Not one American life
should be sacrificed for the UN and its
misguided precepts. Instead of clumsily
treading down the road of UN
globalization and socialization, as we
have in Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, etc let's
get out and worry about America first
Prologue-Traditionally the
general manager of the newspaper
thanks those he or she worked with
in a farewell column. I'd rather give
my gratitude personally so this will
be a departure. I wish to write some-
thing a little more inclusive of the
audience. Besides, since we changed
so much of the paper this year,
what's another tradition?
Well, I'm all learned up and out
the door.
When the university puts a de-
gree in my hand and a boot to my
backside, I'll be out in the QUOTE
real world UNQUOTE UGH! As if I
haven't been working my aforemen-
tioned tail off enough, I had to lis-
ten to years of the looming horror
that is the QUOTE real world UN-
QUOTE. Well, I look forward to as-
cending to that fabled plane just so
every good-intentioned but awk-
wardly-mannered "grown-up" can
shut up about it. It's not like gradu-
ating is an academic bar mitzvah.
But, as I prepare to leave, I
thought it might be a good idea to
give myself a little exiting pop quiz
to see how much I've held onto after
five years of college. So. I crack open
my English notebook (since that was
my major) and ask myself three ques-
tions at random.
Question One: What English phi-
losopher put forth the idea of the "so-
cial contract"? Hobbes. I think. (I
check. Yep, it's Hobbes. That was in
Sundwall's class.)
Question Two: Who wrote Invis-
ible Man? A trick question! There's
always one on every test! Evil! Evil
You have to remember that there's
Invisible Man and The Invisible
Man. The question asks for the one
without the article. That's Ralph
Ellison. (Quick check. Yep again. That
was Hester's class.)
Question Three: Who wrote
Stranger In A Strange Land? Ah.
Heinlein. (I don't have to look that
up. 1 read it my freshman year to im-
press a girl. Didn't work, but it was
assigned later by Schlobin, so 1 didn't
have to read it then.)
So that's what I know Well, I

also can spell farely wail. And I ain't
got no ungood grammar.
With the job market ahead of
me, knowing the above doesn't sound
like much from this end of the sylla-
bus. I mean, I can name authors.
What the hell kinda job can I get with
that? Granted, I'll kill at "Jeopardy"
but that's not a career. Relying on
that would be analogous to major-
ing in math to prepare for state lot-
teries.
So do I feel ill-prepared? Empty-
handed? Is that what I'm saying? Is
this my great good-bye to the paper
and you. the reader? Well, I do feel,
for all my studies, that I don't know
all I could. I'm a little nervous about
getting on the red-eye flight to the
QUOTE real world UNQUOTE.
But if English has taught me one
thing, it's to dig for that symbolism.
The theme of the work. The breadth
of the writer's vision. And English
tests have also taught me to ramble
creatively to at least sound like 1
know what I'm talking about. So
what do the authors that I remem-
ber have to say to me?
Well, I think the "social con-
tract" theory is a great idea, but I
prefer Locke's argument. Entering
into such a contract doesn't deprive
someone of all of his or her rights,
but it places obligations (civic duty)
on them. It works for democratic
societies, and I think it's sound for
microcosmic arenas like marriages
and friendships, as well. A contract
implies mutual gain for mutual effort.
Sort of like the Bible's Golden Rule.
And while America will never com-
pletely separate church and state, if
it has to follow a religious precept,
that's the best one. So I can live with
a liftle union of church and state. If
I hold to that ideal-where I and oth-
ers have to give to get-then I have
to rely on my efforts to succeed.
As for Ellison's book man, that
just stops you cold. The idea of the
"beautiful absurdity a shared iden-
tity of all American ethnic groups-
isn't wished upon or mooned over in
Invisible Man, it's proved necessary.
I caught a little flak in February for
advocating the same thing, and I still
think it's a sound idea and worthy
of attempt It didn't so much teach
me something as detailed amazingly
a stance I already believed in. I'm not
so much reminded as rendered un-
able to forget
And Heinlein tells me, well a
whole lot about people sleeping with
their family members. Okay, that's his
later stuff. (Read most of that too to
impress the girl. I tell ya. nothing
worked with her.) Stranger is about
fresh perspective. End of list. The val-
ues of that speaks for itself. Heinlein
advocates an open mind, but open
only so far. There's fair, and then
there's gullible. Values and expecta-
tions are important There is compe-
tent and incompetent Superior effort
and inferior effort The recognition
of such is a valid act no matter whose
toes may get stepped on.
The QUOTE real world UN-
QUOTE is supposed to be dog-eat-
dog every-man-for-himself, cliche
unto cliche. Yadda. yadda. yadda. If
my effort is judged with those of oth-
ers and I can accept achieving and
failing by that standard, and. hope-
fully, that alone, then I think I'm as
ready as I can get, no matter what
career I aim for. Ah, America. Land
of ideals and deeds. Where men are
men and women aren't. My work will
be my life. I will toil and sweat and
bleed, and it shall make me
gabillions.
And if that doesn't work, Alex
Trebek and I are gonna get to be

VM Letters to the Editor
Watch those false mandates
"They think they have a man-
date every time somebody turns right
at a stoplight
-Rep. Richard Gephardt
Each new set of politicians in
power claims they have a mandate
from the people. They often use this
claim to try to advance their own
agenda. Many politicians even make
the mistake of believing the voters
gave them the unrestricted power to
do as they please. The new Republi-
can majorities in Raleigh and Wash-
ington seem no different from the trail
of politicians that preceded them.
Now the Republicans have dealt
with the relatively non controversial
parts of their agenda, they may try to
embark on a course of social change.
The Republican Party recognizes
many people did not agree entirely
with many Democratic social aims.
However, they fail to realize the pub-
lic does not necessarily agree with
their views either. It seems ironic that
overstepping the bounds of social
change helped defeat the Democrats,
when it may do the same to their suc-
cessors.
Republicans claim they have a
mandate to strengthen property
rights, even if it means sacrificing our
environment They have proposed
legislation to weaken the Clean Wa-
ter and Endangered Species Acts.
They are advocating reducing the
number of wetlands protected by our
government They have even intro-
duced legislation that will effectively

end planning and zoning in munici-
palities here in North Carolina. These
drastic changes may not be supported
by the public who they say gave them
a mandate.
Social change is on the agenda.
Now the relatively non controversial
actions of the first ninety days are out
of the way, conservatives are free to
move on to social change. They seem
to have forgotten the social change
quagmire is part of what trapped their
predecessors. It seems a sure bet they
will be talking about abortion, school
prayer and a host of other
pseudoreligious issues in the near
future.
Newt Gingrich proposed a school
prayer amendment to our constitution
shortly after he arrived in office. Rep.
Gingrich may be overstepping good
reason to believe he has a mandate
for public schools to teach our chil-
dren the proper way to pray. People
have a fundamental distrust of school
teachers telling our children how to
pray. Republicans should avoid these
divisive social issues.
However, it seems unlikely they
will heed this advice. Many conserva-
tives have been waiting for decades
to enact this social agenda. It will be
difficult for them to put issues like
abortion aside after making it a cen-
terpiece of their agenda for so long.
Rep. Henry Aldridge (R-Pitt) re-
cently said he opposes abortion even
in the cases of rape and incest This
does not jibe with national polls show-
ing 67 of the Americans support
abortion in cases of rape and incest
It would be a grave, mistake for Re-
publicans to act on the premise their
election gives them the right to re-
strict or outlaw abortion. A mandate
only goes so far.
My mother used to comment that
if you give some people enough rope
they will hang themselves. Giving tax
breaks to the rich while cutting school
lunch programs may be the rope Re-
publicans hang themselves with.
However, a longer and more deadly
rope would be to embrace social is-
sues far outside mainstream America.
The 1992 Houston Convention
showed how much of an impact these
social issues can have. The 1996 elec-
tion may also. The Republican Party
should be careful about reading man-
dates where they do not exist.
Dear Editor.
I am writing in response to Mr.
Freeman's comments on President
Clinton's chances of re-election.
First, the American people did
vote for the Contract With America,
because that is the platform that the
House Republicans were running on.
Everything was spelled out word for
word, and one would be hard pressed
to find another politician who spelled
out, in writing, everything he
planned to do. Or perhaps it was just
dumb luck that NO new member of
the House was elected from the
democratic party, or just a coinci-
dence that NOT ONE House Repub-
lican incumbent lost. Amazing. As for
the democrat's doing some back seat
driving, hopefully it will be better
than forty years of having them in
the front.
Second, lets be fair to the evil
rich who have "had to step up to pay
their fair share Maybe we should
tax the "rich" until they hide all of
their money under their mattresses,
never investing any of it in America.
Who creates the jobs in this country
anyway? The poor? Also, one of the
many "side effects" of the Reagan
Bush era include increasing the av-
erage income of American families in
every single income class. In fact,
85.8 of the poorest fifth in the coun-
try during the Carter Administration
had their incomes increase by almost
12 by 1988.
Bravo to Clinton for sticking to
her guns on the health care issue.
After all, who wouldn't want to mas-
termind the government's takeover
of nearly one-seventh of the nation's
economy. This from a government
who has lost control of almost every
bureaucracy' it has ever created.
I agree we should look at where
the President stands on the issues
(like foreign policy). And someone
wake me up when he decides where
he stands on affirmative action and
flat tax rates. Perhaps he should form
a committee to find his core beliefs.
The 1994 election was a rejection of
everything Bill Clinton pretends to
stand for, and the 1996 election will
be the same.

To the Editor:
I came across a 1993 edition of
what appears to be the Pirate Year-
book, and browsing through it made
me just a bit ill and at the same time
thankful that football season is over.
The other impression I got was how
self-centered football players are.
Is it a right to passage for every
football player and coach to reach the
height of narcissism that each seems
to gravitate to? You know what I am
talking about, they walk around cam-
pus waving their fat muscles and fat
heats like the world revolves around
them. Give me a break.
Amusingly enough, the old year-
book asserted that the Pirates have a
Football Academic Leadership Team.
Too bad the lead lunk-head on this
squad failed remedial math about a
dozen times. That's academic leader-
ship in the brain-dead world of foot-
ball.
Of course I came across a picture
of the lead prima donna, the sainted
Coach Logan. The snapshot depicts
him holding a football just like a Bap-
tist minister clings to a Bible. And his
eyes are cast towards what appears to
be a distant object future victory per-
haps, but I can not help but think the
ego-maniac is thinking how great he
really is. Gasp
Thank God football season is
over.

To the Editor:
The Republican party is methodi-
cally working to destroy my life and
the lives of millions of other hard-
working college students from middle-
class families. Under their so called
"Contract" $1.4 billion in campus-
based aid (Perkins Loans, Work Study,
and Supplemental Educational Oppor-
tunity Grants) will be cut and would
eliminate aid to 4.5 million students.
As a result of this, students will
be forced to drop out of college and
will not be able to continue their edu-
cation.
What are students supposed to
do without an education? Do the Re-
publicans want the future of this na-
tion to be uneducated?
Obviously, this is exactly what
they want But we cannot sit by pas-
sively and watch them ruin our fu-
tures. We must ACT and make our
voices heard! We have to put an end
to their rhetoric and false, cold
hearted promises. The well being of
our nation depends on our success.
We cannot afford the price of Repub-
lican leadership!

To the Editor:
In response to Shane Deike's opin-
ion column, A dude called Jesus I
would like to express my heartfelt
thank's sic. At first 1 was horrified at
what it was stating until I read the
fourth paragraph and realized he had
only been trying to capture the reader's
attention.
I am so proud to be a bom-again
Christian, and I am so saddened by all
the people who seem not to caie at all
about their eternal destinations. Noone
sic can disprove the evidence that Jesus
lived, so why not have faith and believe
the miraculous news that one can live
forever with Him if he or she simpV be-
lieves? Faith is "believing in what we hope
for and certain of what we cannot see
Thank you for this article which will
hopefully cause people to at least con-
sider the wonderful peace of knowing
that if they die today they will live for-
ever for this truly is the answer to life
itself.
Thank you again, Mr. Deike, for such
a thought provoking article

To the Editor:
I am writing in response to
Brandy Bradsher's letter to the edi-
tor dated Tuesday, April 4,1995. As a
freshman 1 too thought that I knew
more than the average person when
it came to driving. A bit of
advicc.WAKE UP! Unless you have
lived in a small town for your entire
(however short that may be) life, you
would realize that speed limits are a
joke. In other parts of this country
(yes, there are other places outside
your lovely hometown) if you drive any
less than ten miles over the speed
limit you get BLOWN off the road.
This obviously doesn't apply to
Greenville.
I don't criticize anyone for want-
ing to be safe on the road, but I do,
however, criticize people who don't
have enough courtesy to get out of
my way! It doesn't seem like I'm ask-
ing a miracle, but then again, this is
Greenville.
Also, a useless tidbit of
knowledgeAndi Powell (as in maiden
name) Phillips is a female who is the
epitome of a Type B personality. Score
one more for the freshman brain!

HERE ARE SOME MORE THANKS!
No one truly appreciates the work that goes on at a college
newspaper until they are the ones faced with deadlines, late nights
and incredibly grumpy printers. Sometimes the only things that
keep your sanity are the people. Sometimes the only things that
drive you nutso are the people. But either way. this paper wouldn't
exist without yOU PEOPLE. Thank you for many hours and nights
of hard work and dedication. �Maureen.
To the Editor:
I was pleased to see that Sports
Editor Dave Pond chose to concen-
trate on something as significant as
the men's Ultimate Frisbee team -
the Irates - being undefeated and
ranked 1 with sectional rival
UNCW right behind them at 2.
When a university has an athletic
team ranked 1 and defending a
national championship it is needless
to say it deserves recognition. The
significance of Pond's article is im-
measurable.
The Irates stand a great chance
repeating their title. Something that
hasn't been done since UC Santa
Barbara won their third straight title
in 1990 when they defeated the
vurtually unknown UNCW.
The Irates and UNCW have
struggled with the same problems
of recognition and deserved notori-
ety for years: UNCW with 2nd place
finishes in '90 & '91 and a 1st place
in '93, ECU with their title in '94.
Now both representing the region
at the top of the charts and threat-
ening to keep the trophy in the
state. Much like Duke and UNC.
Except Ultimate Frisbee is merely a
Club Sport and that is its biggest
flaw.
I have played Ultimate since '88:
was a part of UNCW's rise and reign,
and witnessed first hane the pass-
ing of the title, and yet not a thing
has changed for either team. They
still have to compete against frater-
nities and sororities for their field
space to practice and play second
hand to all of the varsity sports
whether they be mediocre or not.
There are three tournaments re-
maining for ECU and UNCW this
Spring. The third being College Na-
tionals in Urbana, Illinois, where
they could very easily play each
other in the finals or deny the West
Coast and keep the title in NC for
the third sti aight year.
Dave Pond should keep the
ECU faithful posted - his concern
would not go unappreciated.

To the Editor:
A happy day to you. We all live
forever. The Symbolism of this past
Easter holiday can represent the
eternal truth of reincarnation.
We rise to various Astral planes
which are higher frequency dimen-
sions. As if to imagine the Earth to
be a radio station frequency, the As-
tral planes would be the next
higher frequency station. Depend-
ing on how good we were, will de-
termine which plane we get to live
in. After a time, we can return to
Earth.
We gain knowledge from each
life. Our past life experiences can
help our present life with feelings
and ideas of what to do, if you
search and question your mind.
Accumulate knowledge in this
life, and you'll be wiser in your next
life. So our time here is precious.
Or we return to learn something we
could have learned before.
Live a sober life, and the wis-
dom of your past will shine through
to your present.
Life Eternal,
Sue Saint Marie
