(AP) - Instructors teaching
Marines what to do if they become
prisoners of war must walk a fine
line between realism and politi-
cal correctness, said a Marine in-
volved in training that led to
abuse charges against his com-
rades.
Nine Camp Leieune Marines,
all members of a unit that teaches
Marines about POW interrogation
techniques, are charged with cru-
elty, maltreatment and assault.
Six have had formal hearings be-
fore investigating officers. The
other three are scheduled to have
hearings next week.
(AP) - Telephone users in
Youngsville, NC be warned: you
can let your fingers do the walk-
ing, but if they stray too far, they
might be roped in - or cut off.
Walter Davis is getting tired
of paying his telephone bill on
time - but being harassed to do
it
Sprint-Carolina Telephone
threatened to disconnect Davis'
service this month because he ran
up a bill the company considered
too high. Davis wasn't late with a
payment In fact the payment due
date was still days away when he
received the written notice.
Around the Country
(AP) - Ten years ago. Trang
Ho was with her father and older
sister on a boat fleeing their na-
tive Vietnam. Half a world away,
Sinedu Tadesse lived a slightly
more privileged life in famine-
stricken Ethiopia.
Both dre?med of being doc-
tors, and after high school careers,
of extraordinary distinction -
Trang Ho was listed in a 1993
Boston magazine article as one
of the "25 Who Can Save Bos-
ton" - they found themselves liv-
ing that dream as roommates at
Harvard University.
On the last day of school this
year, after two years of living to-
gether, Tadesse, apparently dis-
traught over their deteriorating
relationship, stabbed Ho to death
and then hanged herself.
(AP) - Volunteers and prison
inmates piled more sandbags to-
day in flooded western Illinois, in
spite of sunshine and lighter-than-
expected weekend rainfall, to
make sure protective levees don't
fail.
Heavy rain has flooded thou-
sands of acres of farmland along
the Illinois River, closing roads
and forcing several hundred
people from their homes. Flood-
ing in Missouri was largely reced

ECU plugs into new technology
New fiber optic
network deemed
best in country
Tambra Zion
News Editor
This article is the first in a series
An expanding fiber optic net-
work, combined with the new student
database and a 10,000 line phone sys-
tem are pushing ECU into the fore-
front of technology.
"When we are finally converted
at the end of the
summer, we will be
the most techno-
logically advanced
university in the
country in a com-
prehensive way
said Vice Chancel-
lor of Business Af-
fairs Richard
Brown. "Other
campuses will have
bits and pieces, but
not the whole thing
Fiber optic wiring of all campus
buildings is scheduled for completion
by the end of August Several con-
tractors have been hired to complete
the project which began last year
with the installation of cable televi-
sion in the residence halls.
"This network is going to put us
on the leading edge of technology
when completed said Chancellor
Richard Eakin. "It provides us not
only with high speed transactions,
but also a contemporary modern
cable system which allows us to trans-
mit video throughout the world
Computing and information sys-
tems (CIS) employees have been
working on the fiber optic network,
and implementing a new student da-
tabase for more than two years, said
Donald Dunlap. associate director of
CIS.
Last
month, a new
Windows-based
student data-
base replaced
the UNISYS sys-
tem the univer-
sity has used for
the past several
years. The new
database runs
through the fi-
ber optic net-
work. Dunlap said the UNISYS was
working well, but the new database
is much more user friendly and can
expand to allow more types of soft-
ware.
"The main part of the conver-
sion is done Dunlap said. "Even
though we have. I think, the best pro-
gramming staff we could have,
they're not perfect
He said bugs would need to be
worked out of the system as it comes
on-line.
Testing the new database came
during first summer session registra-
tion two weeks ago. Students could
not register in eight buildings which
have yet to be wired for fiber optics.
These buildings were marked by red
dots on the doors.
"All things considered, registra-
tion went pretty smoothly said
Michael Balko Jr. university cashier.
"Most students didn't even know
there was a conversion. The comput-
ers went down for about an hour, but
when you're dealing with 63 or 64
hundred people, I'd say it went pretty
smoothly
Brown said the computer failure
was caused by workers trying to
bring two buildings on-line at the
same time. The massive amount of
information overloaded the system.
"Currently, it's (the new data-
base) up and running said Nora D.
Tucker an office assistant in the de-
cision sciences department. "I've
done some searches, it just takes time
to leam a new system
The new IBM-type database op-
erates on a relational system rather
than a hierarchical one, Dunlap said.
This means more information can be
obtained through less channels. He
said CIS offered training classes for
all academic departments.
"I like the new network fortu-
nately all the problems have been
minor said Angela Robins, assistant
registrar. "The transaction time is a
lot faster and it's more friendly. It's
a Windows-based environment
Not everyone is enjoying the.
transition from old to new.

Police recover
bikes after
intensive search
Laura Jackman
Staff Writer
ECU students aren't the only
ones complaining about stolen bikes.
It is now an issue for ECU's Police
Department
On April 27, two police bicycles
valued at over $.1,000 each, were sto-
len from the front porch of the police
department on 10th Street after they
were left unlocked and unattended.
After an intensive two week investi-
gation, the bikes were recovered, one
from as far away as California.
"One bike was destroyed. They
painted on it and scratched the serial
number off which is against the law
said Teresa Crocker, director of ECU
Police.
During the investigation, officers
talked to hundreds of people before
breaking the case with a tip from
Crime Stoppers.
The thief that got as far as Cali-
fornia is being "brought back to have
charges pressed against him Crocker
said. He, along with the other cul-
prit, will faces felony charges. "It's
really up to the courts right now as
far as what happens to these guys
But it did not have to get that
far. The officers offered anyone the
opportunity to lay the bikes on the
50-yard line of Dowdy-Ficklen Sta-
dium, but nothing came of that
"They snouldn't have been left
unsecured on the front porch just
because we're the victims in this
doesn't make it any different than
anyone else Crocker said.
In lieu of this recent crime, the
ECU Police department continues to
stress theft prevention.
"Basically, we try to stress num-
ber one, bike registration said Sgt
Adolphous Fonville, crime prevention
officer for ECU police. "If a stolen bike
hasn't been defaced, proper registra-
tion with us helps with bike recovery.
"It's also important to have a
worthy U-bolt lock and when locking
sthe bike, make sure it's attached to
a tire as well as the frame. This will
ensure thieves have to use measures
that they wouldn't want to use to get
the bike
Sgt Fonville also stressed that
simply locking a tire to the frame and
not onto a bike rack is not enough
deterrent for theft. It provides little
prevention, if any.
"If it's worth riding, it's worth
securing it Fonville said. "And if
these measures are properly followed,
there would be a large reduction in
bike theft across campus

almost a decade editing The Victorian Institute Journal.

Marguerite Benjamin
Staff Writer
After 16 years of hard work and
outstanding progress, ECU is ending
its production of one of the nation's
most prestigious literary journals.
Dr. Donald Lawler, an English
professor, has been the journal's edi-
tor since it was brought to ECU. Be-
fore, the journal was published at Old
Dominion University.
The Victorian Institute Journal
(VIJ) originated from the writings of
a small group of Victorian scholars, a
group of researchers and educators
who would get together to discuss and
enjoy the literature, art and history
of the Victorians.
"The group was known simply as
the Victorian Institute, and the VIJ
was just a collection of the papers pre-
sented in the meetings as most jour-
nals are Lawler, who plans to retire
this year, said.
"When the VIJ came to us
Lawler continued, "it became the goal
of the university to improve the scope
of the journal and expand its cover-
age and quality. It was intended that
the journal would develop a charac-
"Then when Dr. Keats Sparrow
resigned after editing the first two is-
sues, I inherited the job and that
goal
Under Lawler's leadership, along
with Erwin Hester, who served on the
advisor board, McKay Sundwall, an
associate editor, and others, the VIJ
grew in size and reputation. Lawler
laid out various editions on his desk
from the first few issues to the last
including Volume 20, decorated in
purple and gold in celebration of
ECU's 20th anniversary. From the
smaller, plain-covered first editions,
the journal has
tripled in size. Vol-
umes 19 through
20 are beautifully
crafted.
"The
colorswe used in
the design are
those frequently
found in Victorian art, and the design
we used in these last few issues actu-
ally came from a pattern from the
wallpaper of William Morrison, who
revived the art of bookmaking
Lawler said.
"On the cover, the acronym VIJ
is written in Victorian typeface, and
the crown design and monogram are
the exact design that was on the invi-
tation to the queen to be Victoria's
coronation.
"On the back Lawler continued,
"is a cameo with the profile of a young
queen Victoria. So, you can see, the
journal has come a long way, and we
have aspired to keep it as Victorian
as possible
Lawler said working with the
journal was such a demanding job that
it barely left him enough time to com-
plete his own work.
"There were times that I would
just close shop for a few days because
I simply could not take it anymore. I
feel that 14 years is about as long as
anyone should work on one thing
Lawler said.
For this reason, Lawler decided
to retire as editor of the journal to
work on his own
projects. The
1993 edition of
VIJ was Lawler's
last as editor.
"The jour-
nal has now gone
on to 'Blue
Heaven Lawler
said, meaning that the journal has
been handed over to the University
of North Carolina where the coeditors
are at Chapel Hill and Greensboro.
"They have the resources to continue
doing great things with the journal
since they have their own printing
press and better levels of funding.
"Still we are proud of what we
were able to do for the journal here
at ECU. We realized our goal Lawler
said.

Library repairs damage
Flood repairs
should be finished
by end of week
Andi Powell Phillips
Staff Writer
Joyner Library is on its way to
a full recovery after the flooding
that occurred early this month,
damaging several pieces of com-
puter system equipment.
According to Dr. Kenneth
Marks, director of academic library
services, the library computer sys-
tem is completely operational ex-
cept for one component.
"Our CD-ROM network is still
not fully functioning as it was be-
fore due to one computer which is
still being reprogrammed Marks
said. "That computer was the file
server that ran the CD-ROM por-
tion of the network. Some cards in
the computer were damaged. The
other two pieces of equipment and
the furnishings and carpet have
been restored to their previous con-
dition
Marks said the repairs will
hopefully be completed this week.
"Anybody who has worked with
computers knows that any kind of
work that has to be done on them
always takes longer than expected
Marks said. "You can have a goal,
and ours is this week, but whether
or not you can meet that goal is
another matter
According to Ann Stocks, a
computing support technician for
Joyner Library, the goal is close to
being met.
"We have a file server up and
running and we are back-up with
most of the CD-
ROM products
and the librarys
on-line catalog
Stocks said.
"There are still
a few problems
in some indi-
vidual public
work stations,
but we do ex-
pect to have
those corrected
by the end of
the week
If students,

"Nothing is inaccessible, some
things just are not as conveniently
accessible as they were. The staff,
the reference department, the sys-
tems department and everyone in-
volved, have done a good job mak-
ing sure that all of our resources
are available to the students in one
form or another
A cost estimate for the dam-
ages and labor is
still under nego-
tiation between
ECU's physical
plant and the in-
surance carrier,

suggests they go to the reference
desk. The staff will assist with four
freestanding multimedia work sta-
tions made available to fill any gaps
in information.
"As an interim solution, we
have the four freestanding multime-
dia work stations that include the
basement and
other potential flood areas have
been sealed with cement to prevent
any similar instances of flooding
from occurring.
"I can't imagine that we would
ever have a repeat of that event

they'll have this thing worked out, but
right now its been an enormous
hassle Associate English Professor Dr.
Paul Dowell said during registration.
"Right now, in this office, it's been
down more than it's been up
He said the computers are cur-
rently working.
Financial Aid is planning to use Ihe
newer and faster communications ca-
pabilities, but change does not always
come overnight
"We will still be writing those infa-
mous financial aid checks this year, '95-
'96, and students will still have to go to
the cashier's office or the student loans
office to endorse those checks said
Rose Mary Stelma. director of financial
aid. "We are however, going to begin
the development in the next couple of
months of an electronic process where
all of the financial aid that we control
in our office will be credited on an au-
tomated basis so that students will not
have to endorse their student loan
checks
She said the federal government
would not allow for the elimination of
all paperwork, but that the financial aid
office plans to drastically reduce the
amount of paperwork in years to come.
Stelma heads the Administrative
Computing Committee (ACC), a group
which makes decisions as to what tech-
nological advances ECU can make and
when.
"We review requests for enhance-
ments to the system and try to priori-
tize those so that the things that are
going to benefit the most to people, are
the projects that get the most attention
initially Stelma said.

The walls of Lawler's office in
ECU's General Classroom Building
seem to be made of awards as the jour-
nal and former editor have been rec-
ognized by many organizations for
several areas of achievement.
"We got our first award in 1987
from the North Carolina Victorian's
Association. It was a local state orga-
nization, but we are proud, as we have
been with all of our awards. The jour-
nal brought the university some posi-
tive recognition we were very happy
to have Lawler said.
Perhaps the most prestigious of
these tokens of recognition was
awarded by the Council of Editors of
Learned Journals (CEU), which rarely
gives more than one award to the same
organization. Lawler has received three
including the Phoenix Awaid for the
Best Editorial Achievement in 1988-89,
the Best Journal Design Award in 1993-
94 and the 1994-95 Distinguished Re-
tiring Editor Award.
"That's the one I would save
from a fire if I could onlv choose one
Lawler said. "The Distinguished Retir-
ing Editor award defines a career as
an editor. After you've put your best
work into something, it's nice to have
someone give you a pat on the back
Lawler went on to express that the
award was much more than a pat on
the back.
"I know a lot of the people who
have received this award, and to find
oneself in that type of company is sim-
ply amazing Lawler said.

The East Carolinian
Art after Auschwitz
The art of Joseph
Beuys comes to
Gray Gallery
J. Miles Layton
Staff Writer
nHHMMHMMMMBMMi
Imagine a new world order per-
fected in art. An explosive, creative
new social order where the individual
plays a crucial role. Art so startling
could only be the Joseph Beuys Sym-
posium shown at the Gray Art Gal-
lery May 27 through July 15.
Brought by the Federal Republic
of Germany, East Carolina was cho-
sen as one of only seven sites in the
United States to host the 80-piece
exhibit worth over $7 million.
The exhibit features drawings and
videos of Beuvs' performance art.
Themes of new life infused from dis-
covering the world cause an introspec-
tive voyage of thought. Unconven-
tional and bizarre, Beuys' drawings
were made with simple substances like
coffee, tea and water dissolved in rust
or iodine. Pictures of words and im-
ages illustrate the brush strokes of his
imagination.
Concerned with transforming the
individual and society, Beuys' perfor-
mance art sprang from the idea that
wax, fat, honey and felt are chaotic
liquid when hot. Cold, these sub-
stances are orderly - like man. The
artist believed his performances had
a spiritual energy.
Sponsored by a partial grant from
the North Carolina Arts Council, the
exhibition and symposium are free to
the public. Several professors will
speak of the artist's work on June 1.
Moderated by Teresa Norton, the Tho-
mas Rivers Chair at East Carolina,
there will be a panel discussion at 3:30
p.m. in Speight auditoruim. A public
reception in Gray Art Gallery at 4:30
p.m will follow the discussion.
"Everybody is an artist Beuys
said, but while this is true, not every-
one is a Beuys. Art is affected by life,
and his life mirrored his art. Born in
Germany, he served as a dive bomber
in World War II. He was shot down
over Russia and rescued by nomadic
Tartars who wrapped him in animal
fat to keep him from freezing to death.
Despite a head injury, Beuys survived
the war in a Cold War German soci-
ety trying to reconcile itself with two
World Wars and the Holocaust.
Most German artists wondered
how to make art after Auschwitz.
Beuys thought art should not be em-
barrassed from experience but be-
come more than art.
Beuys was a political activist who
felt art should not be reserved for the

Whether or not a band has any
talent, it takes guts to release a live
CD. A release free from overproduc-
tion or editing showcases the band
in its rawest form, but it's also that
much more difficult to hide mistakes
frequently made during live perfor-
mances.
When mistakes are made, a live
crowd is much more unforgiving
than a producer who can easily say,
"Alright guys, let's try that chorus
one more time Moon Boot Lover
(MBL) recorded all the tracks on
Live Down Deep (much as the title
implies) at a live show last Novem-
ber in Albany, NY.
I have seen their name on the
performers' list for the Home Grown
Music Festival, but this is the first
time I've ever heard their music. It
seems MBL has a knack for perform-
ing songs in a manner that compels
the listener to close his eyes and
paint a mental picture from what
he's hearing.
For me, the vision is clear. The
fourth track, "NYC has me feeling
the blues. Stout cigar smoke like a
thick blanket covers me, the over-
bearing atmosphere of bourbon and
stale beer that clogs the air in a hole-
in-the-wall bar on the proverbial
wrong side of the tracks. This track's
slow, melodic feel has me looking
at the burly, blue-collar factory

When you hear a band being com-
pared to the Beatles it means one of
two things: they sound really good or
they are murdering the idea of song
craft People use the Beatles as an anal-
ogy too loosely. Island records has done
just that with the press release for their
new band. Beggars.
Maybe I shouldn't expect too
much because they are young; the av-
erage age of the members of Beggars
is 21. The lead singer (Eli Braden) and
guitarist (Jeremy Kunz) have been play-
ing together since high school, which
was only about three years ago for
them. They had their start playing
around Rockford, Illinois and that is
where they got their big break. One
fateful night they were opening up for
The Call (an old school San Francisco
punk outfit) and the lead singer liked
them so much he volunteered to pro-
duce their first album. They moved to
San Francisco, got a bassist and a
drummer and the rest is history. Island
records offered them a deal and now
we have their first untitled release.
Their sound is pop. The sound is
very similar to many other popalter-
native bands that you can hear today.
The Stone Roses, Oasis and The Ocean
Blue come to mind. Their sound is very
familiar think I can even hear the
vocal melodies of Madonna in some of
the songs; one of them sounds exactly
like "Like a Prayer" in its vocal intona-

wealthy or the elite. He co-founded
the Green party. He loved fine things
like caviar and expensive clothes, and
he owned a Bentley. His trademarks
were his Stetson hats, which covered
his war wounds.
Before Beuys' death in 1986, he
began organizing his art work into
collections called blocks He consid-
ered these blocks reservoirs of spiri-
tual energy. They represent time peri-
ods and themes of his hfe. The 80-
piece collection is a cross section of
these blocks of work.
Gunter- Minas, a freelance art
historian, is commissioned by the Fed-
eral Republic of Germany to exhibit
the Beuys collection. Owned by the
government, the collection's five-year
mission is to demonstrate German
culture.

Staff Writer
I recently watched Die Hard II:
Die Harder on tape. Though pleas-
antly surprised by the film when it
originally opened I found watching it
again surprisingly unsatisfying. The
contrivances of the plot became a little
too apparent, the twists in the tale
seemed a little shocking, and the plot
holes appeared all too frequently.
Since I expected little from Die
Hard With a Vengeance, I must ad-
mit the film pleased me. However,
armed with the recent viewing of the
second installment, I know that a re-
peated viewing of Die Hard With a
Vengeance will only prove disappoint-
ing.
The thrill of the game has less-
ened with each sequel. Whereas the
original Die Hard virtually jumped off
the screen with explosions and ten-
sion, it also generated some (almost)
three-dimensional characters. John
Mclean was a real guy caught in a bad
situation. Mclean's wife Holly got to
demonstrate just why her husband
called her stubborn. Even the police
officer Mclean chatted with on the
phone had nuances (remember the
Twinkies he ate?) that made his char-
acter seem more real. Plus Alan
Rickman portrayed one of the most
suave and eloquent villains to appear
in an action film.
The two Die Hard sequels have
had to make the action bigger and
the plot more complex in order to hold
viewer's attention. In the process,
some of the thril! has been lost. One
comes to expect John Mclean to beat
the odds. Instead of
wondering if he will.
the question be-
comes how he will.
John
McTiernan. who di-
rected the original
Die Hard (but sur-
rendered the reigns
to Renny Harlin for
the second one), is at
the helm for Die
Hard With a
Vengengeance.
McTiernan seems to
be working too hard
for thrills in this film.
He does a workman-
like job but the artistic side of him
does not surface.
McTiernan proved his directorial
mettle with Die Hard and Hunt for
Red October but slipped recently with
The Last Action Hero. Since both Die
Hard and The Hunt for Red October
took place in confined spaces one is
apt to conclude that McTieman's ar-
tistic side is forced to emerge when
he has boundaries. In Die Hard With
a Vengeance, McTiernan has no
boundaries, so he spends the entire
film trying to flex his machismo style
instead of crafting a taut, exciting,
intelligent action film.
McTiernan does know how to
choreograph action. After a compul-
sory establishing shot of New York
City, an entire department store blows
up. Talk about beginning a film with
a bang! McTiernan works better
though in close spaces, as evidenced
by a tense elevator ride in which
Mclean disposes of four terrorists.
The explosion of the department
store is designed to get the attention
of the NYPD. The terrorist, who calls
himself Simon (Jeremy Irons), says
that he wants to play a game of Simon
Says with John Mclean (Bruce Willis).
Any failure by Mclean to follow
Simon's instructions exactly will re-
sult in another building being blown
up.
The first
third of the story
really zips along
as Mclean is
forced into several
precarious situa-
tions. In his first
assigned task
Mclean must walk
along the streets
of Harlem wear-
ing a sign reading
"I Hate Niggers
Just before being
bludgeoned by a
group of harlem
youths, Mclean is
rescued by a pawn
shop owner named Zeus (Samuel L.
Jackson). Simon decides to send Zeus
along with Mclean for the rest of the
game. So, Mclean and Zeus must an-
swer a riddle about a man going to
St. Ives and find out how to measure
four gallons of water using a three
gallon and a five gallon container.
The tricks of Simon prove enjoy-
able but soon Die Hard With a Ven-
geance deteriorates into the typical
mind-numbing action film where the
coincidences pile up faster than the
bodies. When Mclean uses an aspirin
bottle to track Simon, and Zeus hap-

"A Drop in the Bucket" is
just what it claims to be: a very
tiny drop in the great scream-
ing bucket of American media
opinion. Take it as you will.

"Hello, would you like to
switch your long distance call-
ing service, be signed up for a
new credit card, add expensive
services to your existing credit
card account, or buy aluminum
siding?"
It's happened to all of us.
We'll just the sitting around,
minding our own business and
trying to enjoy a bowl of corn
flakes and a Bugs Bunny car-
toon. Then the phone rings,
breaking the blissful peace of
our homestead.
But that's okay. Maybe it's
Mom calling, or perhaps long-
lost cousin Cornelius returning
at last from that fateful Arctic
expedition, or maybe just some-
body we won't hate talking to.
But no. It's just some slimy
telemarketer, violating our right
to privacy by attempting to com-
mit acts of commerce via the
telephone wire. I hope there's
a particularly vile space re-
served in Hell for the bastard
who came up with the idea of
selling stuff over the phone
(something involving rats and
human feces would be nice).
Of course, this one might
have come from the desk of Sa-
tan himself.
I can't believe we let this
go on. A nameless, faceless
voice comes to us over the
phone, hastily explains a com-
plicated business transaction,
and expects us to go for it like
a dog being offered a particu-
larly succulent bone. I don't
know about anybody else, but I
zone out on a telemarketing
sales pitch about three sen-
tences in (when I bother to lis-
ten at all). Oh yeah! Sign me up
for that!
And even more annoying
than the sales pitch itself is the
attitude the callers take. I
haven't spoken with a
telemarketer yet who didn't act
like they thought they were do-
ing me a favor by hawking their
chintzy wares directly into my
living room. Not once has a
caller apologized for interrupt-
ing my day, even when told that
I was eating! And there's noth-
ing less appealing than soggy
corn flakes.
We could plot vengeance
against these vile demons of
commerce by thinking up ways
to annoy them as much as they
annoy us.
We could, for instance, of-
fer to sell them something even
more useless than what they're
offering us. "No, I'm not inter-
ested in coating my house in
polyvinyl spray paint, thanks,
but could I interest you in five
tons of llama sperm?"
Or we could try juvenile
phone pranks. "Could I speak
to Lou Zer, please?"
Or we could even act like
nutcases and scare them off the
line. There's the manic ap-
proach: "Hello, Joe or "No! I
don't want any herpes Then
there's the calm, deadly
method: "I know where you
live
But this isn't entirely fair.
The people making the calls
aren't really the ones at fault
here. They're probably just col-
lege students like us, trying to
make a few bucks on the side.
They don't deserve our abuse.
But simply telling them
that we're not interested isn't
always enough. Some of these
people go for the hard sell and
trap us on the line saying "I
don't want any" for an hour. So
what can we do?
I just hang up on them.
It's simple, effective, and
you don't have to take any crap.
Sure it's a little rude, but
they're the ones thrusting the
hoary head of commerce into
my living room. Why should
they mind if I chop it off?

Though parts of the CD are slow and
some songs are accompanied by an

rently available and is definitely
worth the time and monetary invest-
ment.

The opening track, "Falling Down

are downright weak. "1 got nowhere to
go I got nothing to show I'm just
hanging around with my head to the

about this original, which is not very
original if you ask me.
"Lovely Soul Detonator" is a little
heavier than the opening track, with the
use of some heavy distortion and a wah-
wah pedal. They are good at twisting
two melodies together, it's just that they
don't take any chances. This song is so
predictable it hurts.
"Stray" is the one acoustic track
on this release. The song's base is the
continual acoustic strumming of two
chords overlaid with some sparse har-
monies from an electric. The subject
matter is familiar; it's a song about leav-
ing and coming back home. Tell mom

that she wouldn't like. Like play some-
thing original.
The last song on this release is the
darkest song on the disc. Heavily laden
with feedback and screeching guitars.
"I Want You" opens with a cacophony
and then fades to a recognizable melody.
This melody comes straight from L'2: it
sounds exactly like the guitar work in

too ridiculous to explain), the audi-
ence feels insulted. For an action film
to use such obvious tricks is like a
guy yawning at the movies to put an
arm around his date.
Bruce Willis still retains his smug
veneer but it is wearing thin. Willis
proved this year that he could re-
ally act (in both Nobody's Fool and
Pulp Fiction), but in Die Hard With
a Vengeance, he is there only to
collect a paycheck.
Samuel L. Jackson, the hardest
working man in Hollywood right
now, again proves reliable. He brings
humor to Zeus and does the best he
can with the limited dimensions of
the character.
Jeremv Irons does better before
he appears on screen. His voice
proves quite unnerving (shades of
his Scar voice for The Lion King),
but once he appears, he is too much
like any other foreign psychotic ac-
tion film villain (he even adopts a
German accent).

fers little new to the audience. Hope-
fully the only other time I'll want to
see a Die Ha,d film is when I rent

vehicle.
On a scale of one to ten, Die
Hard With a Vengeance rates a six.

Our View
Every year it's
the same
complaint: Why
do we have to
go to school on
Memorial Day?
Every year we
are in the same
place, the
classroom.
When will ECU
begin to
recognize this
national
holiday?
Memorial Day: Webster's dictionary states, "a U.S. holiday
officially celebrated on the last Monday in May in honor of
members of the armed forces killed in war
This definition seems to point to patriotism, respectful ob-
servance and remembrance, does it not?
Then it is completely absurd to hold classes and have a
regular business day like we had this Memorial Day. The belief
that having classes last Monday would not disturb the fragile,
tranquil flow of teacher-student relations achieved in these last
two weeks of summer school is ludicrous. Or so the right num-
ber of calendar days, on someone's calendar, will pass between
summer sessions and the beginning of the fall semester is an-
other justification that should be tossed in the garbage.
Since the students have to be here, the professors have to
be here and the rest of the staff also has to be here. Making
certain salaried state employees come to work and giving oth-
ers the day off would be unfair, after all. But wouldn't it be
much fairer if the residents of North Carolina's university sys-
tem had the day off just like the rest of the country?
We are not trying to contend that if classes were canceled,
everyone even remotely associated with ECU would spend the
entire day sulking solemnly at home paying their respects to
our nation's fallen heroes of war. But Memorial Day is com-
monly known as the first day of summer and many folks spend
it having a barbecue, visiting the neighborhood pool or just
spending some long overdue quality time with the family.
Especially in eastern North Carolina, these issues dealing
with military personnel should be handled with more care. A
large portion of Pitt County's tax base is paid by either active,
reserve or retired military personnel, many of whom are natu-
rally sensitive to the issue of having Memorial Day come and
go without so much as a pause taken by this campus.
The primary issue involved is the true meaning of the holi-
day. Each time someone was killed in war, families were up-
ended and dreams were extinguished. All the servicemen hon-
ored on this day died ensuring all Americans the freedoms
enjoyed today. As long as America is the single, strongest mili-
tary power in the world, we suppose not pausing to honor the
military's fallen comrades won't weaken us globally, but such
an issue as disregarding Memorial Day as a U.S. holiday cer-
tainly doesn't strengthen morale.
Laziness is not a factor in our argument. There just doesn't
seem to be a clear answer as to why we worked or attended
classes on a day when the rest of the country relaxed.
Dance of the deranged
;?
Lots of strange things in the
news lately, lots of stories to worry
those in the crowd whose weirdness
antennae are up and receiving for
the better portion of our waking
lives. We'd enjoyed a lull in the lu-
nacy for a while, a quiet period of
relative calm where the biggest sur-
prise turned out to be the day when
we all found out that it was indeed
a wax dummy of 0) that has been
sitting at the defense table all these
long months.
Out in San Diego, an unem-
ployed Army vet stole a tank from a
National Cuard armory and went on
a 20-minute rampage that ground
cars, telephone poles and fire hy-
drants into vague memories of their
former functionalism. No bystanders
were hurt, but still, it must have
been one hell of a sight to greet you
as you just step out of the Dairy
Queen.
That same day, a microbiologist
as San Luis Obispo announced that
he had successfully revived a strain
of 30-million-year-old bacteria that
he had recovered from the stomach
of an amber-imprisoned wasp. Those
of you who have seen Jurassic Park
know how this is supposedly done.
Upon hearing this news, I im-
mediately went out and started buy-
ing canned food, and cement for my
isolation bunker.
"Poking a spore that's been hit-
ting the snooze button for 30 mil-
lion years I thought in horror.
"Now that's smart, to be fooling
around with something that was
kicking happily around the planet
long before the first fish came up
with the idea of putting a conve-
nience mart up on land"
Everyone I talked to about this
said the same thing. We're doomed.
We haven't even licked the common
cold yet, and here's some cipher sci-
entist who's messing around with a

cranky bacterium with the worst
case of morning breath in history.
My friend Stephanie and I have
lately gotten into the habit of run-
ning a nightly Doom-Watch during
the late evening news. It seems like
every day, there's at least one item
in the mix that gives me the grim
creeps. On a good day, there can be
three or four.
Those who don't work on the
graveyard shift think that we do it
out of that never-day-die, get-up-and-
go mojo. On occasion this is true,
but in most instances, we're not feel-
ing too ambitious after 2 a.m. The
thing that most night owls are, how-
ever, is paranoid.
That's why I tune in so faith-
fully to the tragic and unbelievable
every night. If you really must think
that there's always someone behind
you, it's at least nice to have it af-
firmed now and then.
The story of Tank Man struck a
particularly resonant chord with me,
because, with the possible exclusion
of the tank, it's something that
could happen any lime, anywhere,
to anyone. According to the news-
paper, the guy "just snapped and
used his "know-how" to get into the
armory an five-finger the unusual
choice of vehicles.
Stephanie and i mediated for a
while on the concept of "snapping
It's happening more and more often
these days, or at least now it's get-
ting more press.
Snapping. It sounds like an em-
barrassing social blunder, doesn't
it? Like it would make for an awful
indiscretion in a public place. Snap-
ping in an elevator, for instance -
"Okay, who snapped in here?"
Imagine the over-the-counter
medications for this affliction:
Snap-Ex, which reduces mental
stress and bloating brought on by
despair and heartbreak, use only as
directed, thought. Wouldn't want
you to get too mellow there.
It would also be convenient
(not to mention safer) if a person
snapping produced a highly audible
sound, like the breaking of a dry
tree branch. It would be fitting, but
unfortunately, we don't have such
early warning benefits.
My girlfriend doesn't watch the
news. She says it depresses her, and
I expect a lot of people out there
feel the same way. I, on the other
hand, am a media junkie. It lets me
know what places 1 should be es-
pecially careful around.
California, I've decided, is not
a fun place to be this time of year.
If some 30-million-year-old bacterial,
bogeyman doesn't jump up in your
face out of a mummified wasp's gut,
then you could just as easily get
squashed in the street by a loon
behind the wheel of an M-60 tank.
I've been cursed before for
making light of lightless situations
before, but sometimes, humor is the
only buffer you have. Don't want
any mental ulcers. Enjoy your week-
end, people, but watch how you
wield your know-how: it could get
you shot, infected, or just plain run
over.

It's nice to be nice
I am not complaining, lecturing
or speech-making today. I am saying
thank you because, in my opinion,
there are a lot of really great people
on this campus and too often they
get ignored while attention is lav-
ished on the people causing trouble.
I have been at ECU for two se-
mesters now and I am constantly
amazed at how friendly and helpful
most people are, including other stu-
dents, professors, and, yes, even some
campus bureaucrats (I will mention
no names to avoid inflating egos or
hurting feelings). ECU is criticized
by outsiders for being a "party"
school, and it is criticized by insid-
ers (students mostly) for what often
seems like thousands of ridiculous
rules and regulations that seem to
hold-up progress in every area of cam-
pus life.
I am not (in this column, any-
way) going into whether those criti-
cisms are deserved or not: however,
I am going to say that whatever the
shortcomings of this university may
be, it has a great overall attitude. The
people in my classes talk to each

Transferring to a
new school is
difficult, but nice
people sure can
make the
transition easier
other, exchange phone numbers for
studying, and really get to know each
other. Most of my professors have
gone out of their way not just to
teach their subject, but to really try
to make it interesting (even my logic
professor, and you know he had some
hard work to do there!) And, don't
tell anyone, but I've met a few cour-
teous and helpful people in Finan-
cial Aid and the Cashier's Office (I
will not mention names here either
as I'm afraid the bad people in both
of these offices know people, if you
know what I mean).
You may not think these little
things are a big deal, but take it from
someone who transferred here from
a university with a lousy attitude -
it is a big deal. It can make all the
difference in the world to whether
or not you learn anything , or even
actually go to class, or even make it
through your freshman year.
I don't mean to say that every-
one I have met on this campus is ab-
solutely wonderful and I skip off to
my eight o'clock classes with a song
in my heart and a bluebird on my
shoulder, but, in general, the major-
ity of the time, I like being a student
here. I think this campus has a real
heart to it (and, often, a very quirky
sense of humor too) and that is be-
cause of all of you who are students,
faculty or staff here. Give yourselves
a pat on the back and then get over
it because this is it for the mushy
stuff. I'll have to think of something
big to complain about next week to
live this down.
Money shouldn't mean power
There's no justice in govern-
ment.
We all know government is cor-
rupt, but I have proof. The proof (and
fhe truth) lies within the four-foot-
nigh stack of papers my mother has
been struggling with for the past five
years. Her ex-husband was a very
powerful man who kept several
prominent government officials in his
pocket (the one with the checkbook).
When she decided she could no
longer live life with this man, he de-
cided to ruin her life. Without a
doubt he has done so.
Over the past five years I have
watched every aspect of my mother's
life deteriorate. Her health is poor.
She can no longer afford lawyers. She
can't sell her home or her business
because she is tied up in lawsuits
with a dead man. That's right, he
died in December, but the state of
North Carolina has continued to
prosecute and persecute every area
of her life. If you don't believe me,
ask her, she'd be glad to tell you

do was separate
herself from an

marriage and an
abusive man.

about it, but you probably don't have
the time to sort through the hours,
and years, of legal paperwork she is
forced to face everyday.
She has made several trips to
Washington, D.C. seeking an injunc-
tion against the state, but justice has
yet to be found for her. Her cases
are lost, trumped up and some are
blatantly false. She begged The News
and Observer to help her publicize
the awful prejudices she suffers from,
but they wouldn't touch it I guess
The News and Observer's bark is
worse than its bite when it comes to
actually being a government watch-
dog, or maybe they don't have any
decent investigative reporters willing
to make the effort All of her avenues
for seeking help have been exhausted
with time and her life is continually
being squeezed out of existence by
bureaucracy. I don't think the state
wants to put her behind bars, but
they don't need to, her life is ruined
just the same.
Whatever the case, North Caro-
lina has wedged this law abiding citi-
zen directly between a rock and a hard
place. All she tried to do was sepa-
rate herself from an abusive marriage
and an abusive man. She wants noth-
ing more than to get out of the state
and live her life in peace, but that
American dream can't be obtained
when American government (and the
American dollar) gets involved.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Last semester, I reported several in-
dividuals for unauthorized parking in
handicapped spaces. The traffic office
would call the. individual and request that
they move their vehicles. One individual
car, a two door green camaro, I reported
more than eight times. The individual was
called for the first six violations and asked
to move their car. I spoke to Pat Gertz in
the traffic office when the seventh viola-
tion occurred. She personally called the
instructor and requested that the car be
moved. The individual made the comment
that she could not understand why
"those people" got all the good parking
spaces.
On the eighth occurrence I insisted
that the camaro be towed. An individual
in the traffic office told me that staff cars
are never towed. Unofficially she stated
that the officers could not even ticket
the cars until the individuals were called
and given the opportunity to move their
vehicles. On the eighth occasion I went
to the traffic office in person and insisted
a ticket be issued. An individual in the
traffic office told me the ticket was ap-
pealed and the individual was not held
liable because it was the first offense!
Why are there two standards for
dealing with traffic violations? Why are
students not afforded the opportunity
to move their vehicles prior to the issu-
ance of a ticket? Please do not insult my
intelligence by quoting rules and regula-
tions that are not bias. I know that they
exist I want to know why they are not
enforced?

To the Editor:
It seems lately that North Carolina
is gaining a reputation as one of
America's best places to be. Money
Magazine ranks Raleigh-Durham as the
best place to live and other large cities
such as Charlotte and Greensboro are
experiencing stable and growing econo-
mies. As the Tarheel state receives all of
this great publicity for attracting indus-
try and high paying jobs to ensure a
better way of life, myself along with other
native eastern North Carolinians are say-
ing "what jobs?"
I admit that I'm proud that North
Carolina is gaining a reputation for
growth, but the eastern portion of the
state has yet to receive any amount of
dramatic growth in the past few years
compared to the rest of the state and
nation. While the Piedmont is gaining
industry, the East is losing industry ev-
ery day. Just last month, employees were
notified at Wellcome that the merger
with Glaxo would layoff 100 people in
Greenville while Black and Decker in
Tarboro, Edgecombe county's largest em-
ployer, stated it was closing it's sic doors
while a plant in Pinetops that manufac-
turers car parts for GM made the an-
nouncement last week that they will be
laying off 300 employees and closing in
the near future.
More people need to confront their
county board members and write to lo-
cal representatives like Eva Clayton in
an effort to find some answers as to why
some areas ofour state are escalating up
as parts of the East are stepping back.

The East Carolinian
Air Jordan to return to
Emerald City in June
Marcus Crandell
Jeff Blake
Dave Pond
Sports Editor
Everyone who attended a lun-
cheon Thursday afternoon at
Greenville's Brook Valley Country
Club left full of Bull.
After a one-year hiatus (when his
professional baseball schedule con-
flicted with tournament dates). Chi-
cago Bulls' star Michael Jordan will
return to Eastern North Carolina and
lead over 60 celebrities in the 11th
Annual Michael Jordan Golf Classic,
taking place June 23-25. The three-
day event will benefit the Ronald
McDonald Houses of North Carolina.
With Jordan's return to the NBA,
no one, including the superstar, could
definitively confirm his participation
in the celebrity event until Wednes-
day afternoon.
"It is a great honor to have
Michael come back this year - it
means a lot to our tournament, as you
know said tournament chairman
Mark Rosenberg. "This has become
an event that has gained major noto-
riety throughout the Southeast, and
is one of the classiest and most well-
run events in the country
A diverse mix of athletes, televi-
sion and music industry stars make
up this year's tournament field. This
includes 1991 ECU Peach Bowl MVP
quarterback Jeff Blake, the starting
quarterback for the Cincinnati
Bengals.
"I'm glad to be back in
Greenville Blake said. 'The tourna-
ment is for a good cause, and I'll do
anything for the kids. This is my job
- I'm here to give back to the com-
munity. If someone didn't give to me,
I don't think that I would have made
it where I am today
Also on hand for Thursday's press
conference and festivities was former
Harlem Globetrotter and Raleigh na-
tive Twiggy Sanders.
"I'm
very
grateful
for this
opportu-
n i t y , "
Sanders
said. "Ev-
ery year
the tour-
nament gets better and better. It's
amazing to see th'e community sup-
port"
The golf classic is just one of the
numerous fundraising events over the
weekend. The Michael Jordan Celeb-
rity Jam kicks off tournament festivi-
ties on Friday, June 23. The event,
featuring country music star Neal
McCoy and over 40 other tournament
participants, will be held in ECU's
Wright Auditorium. Tickets for the
concert can be purchased from the
ECU Ticket Office beginning on May
29 for $25. The show will begin at 8
p.m.
"Neal McCoy spent more time at
number one in 1994 than any other
country entertainer Rosenberg said.
"He and his band are donating their
time and resources to this event, with
100 percent of the proceeds going to
the Ronald McDonald Houses of
Michael Jordan
Celebrity Golf Classic
North Carolina
From 24 p.m. on Friday after-
noon, children from the Houses and
celebrities will participate in the an-
nual Dutch Boy Painting Party. Their
artwork, along with other celebrity
memorabilia, will be auctioned off
Saturday evening. Both events will
take place in the Hilton Inn Ballroom
in Greenville.
In 1984, this tournament began
as the Eastern Carolina Celebrity Golf
Classic. Jordan was named the honor-
ary chairman of the event in 1988.
and the tourney was renamed in his
honor the following year.
Tickets for Sunday's Golf Classic
are $10 for adults and $5 for children
ages 6-11. Children under the age of
six will be admitted free of charge. For
more information about any of these
events, contact tournament director
Pam Crocker at (919) 355-3222.

"I want to play in New York. That
is the key. I'm healthy mentally and
physically. There will be other teams

ished business that I have to finish

"There's a fact a lot of writers

Strawberry, 33, was suspended
through June 23 after testing positive
for cocaine. He was released by the
San Francisco Giants following the
positive test, and the players associa-
tion has filed a grievance in an at-
tempt to get him paid. The case is to
be heard June 19 by arbitrator George
Nicolau.
"I had several additional conver-
sations with George this weekend in
respect to how the arbitration involv-
ing the release from the Giants works
and when he thought we would have
a clearer picture of Darryl's availabil-
ity agent Bill Goldstein told the Post
Strawberry hit .239 with four
homers and 17 RBIs in 29 games with
the Giants last year after being re-
leased by the Los Angeles Dodgers
and spending 28 days at the Betty
Ford Center for a substance abuse
problem.
"Returning to New York would
probably be the best thing that ever
happened to me said Strawberry,
who hit .263 with 252 homers and 733
RBIs in eight seasons with the the
Mets. "I'd love the challenge. People
have the wrong impression of me com-

Earlier this year, Strawberry
pleaded guilty to tax evasion. He was
sentenced to three years' probation,
starting with six months under house
arrest at his home in Rancho Mirage.
He must pay the government about
$350,000 in back taxes, interest and
penalties.
Marlin hurler
belts grand slam
First pitcher since
1986 season to
accomplish feat
(AP) - Chris Hammond made all
pitchers proud.
Forget that he had a five-run lead
and couldn't get through five innings
to get the win. The Florida Marlins
left-hander hit a grand slam, the first
by any pitcher in nearly nine years.
It was one of a season-high 19
hits for the Marlins in a 9-7 victory
over the Houston Astros Monday
night, but it was a one in a lifetime
moment for Hammond.
"As soon as you hit it, it feels like
a second set of lights come on said
Hammond, a lifetime .201 hitter with
four career homers.
Hammond struggled to suppress
a smile as he trotted home, broke into
a grin in the dugout, then briefly
stepped back onto the field when the
crowd demanded a curtain call.
"It's probably the only curtain
call I'll get my whole life he said. "I
had a couple of guys from the bullpen
tell me they had chill bumps from the
crowd's reaction
The last pitcher to have provided
chill bumps with a grand slam was
Bob Forsch of St. Louis, who hit one
against Pittsburgh's Mike Bielecki on
Aug. 10, 1986.
"I wasn't expecting a grand slam
by any means Marlins manager Rene
Lachemann said. "Any time we score
runs, it's a lift for us
The Marlins, who have the ma-
jors' lowest batting average at .234,
got a 5-for-5 from Terry Pendleton and
a 4-for-4 from Alex Arias.
Pendleton had three singles, a
double and a triple to tie his career
high for hits in a game. He ended a 3-
for-26 slump and raised his batting
average to .246.
"I know 1 can swing the bat he
said. "Therr's no doubt in my mind.
Tonight is an indication of what 1 can

Controversy surrounds Indy500
Villenueve wins title
after overcoming
two-lap penalty
(AP) - The winner had to drive
505 miles to win America's most fa-
mous 500-mile race. And not because
he was a Canadian getting a bad deal
on the exchange rate.
"I thought we might need to be
paid a little extra joked Barry Green,
who owns the car Jacques Villeneuve
drove to victory in Sunday's Indy 500.
Owner and driver could afford to
be charitable about going the extra
distance after overcoming a two-lap
penalty assessed against them early
in the race for passing the pace car.
But that's because the same pen-
alty, assessed against Scott Goodyear
late in the race, enabled Villeneuve
to cross the finish line second and still
be declared the winner.
"A regulation is a regulation he
said, flashing a 24-year-old's unaf-
fected grin. "They penalized us two
laps because we overtook the pace car.
There's no reason they would have
done that to us and not to someone
else
Everyone figured the absence of
Team Penske and his top-gun drivers
would make for a wide-open race. But
no one expected chaos like this.
Four cars were taken out in a
crash before one
lap was complete.
The lead changed
hands 23 times
among 10 different
drivers, two who
surrendered the
front in a most re-
luctant fashion:
They crashed. A to-
tal of nine penal-
ties were assessed
' in three hours, the auto racing equiva-
lent of a Philadelphia Flyers game
from two decades ago.
"1 think disbelief is probably the
best description said Scott
Goodyear, the Canadian who steered
a Honda on Firestone tires across
America's most famous finish line first
Sunday - but still lost.
Disbelief?
"At one point near the end. I saw
there were seven laps remaining
Villeneuve recalled. "And on the next
lap my crew told me there were 10
laps left
"And on the next

chain-reaction
crash touched off
when veteran Stan Fox veered sharply
right between Turns 1 and 2 effec-
tively ended the workday for a half-
dozen of their competitors.
Strange as the early going
seemed, the crowd of 400,000 was
treated to at least one familiar scene.
An Andretti favorite running out of
luck and into the pits with a busted
car. In this case it was Michael - Mario
retired last year - and it came on Lap

out of Turn 4 trying to protect a lead.

Welcome to another glorious
summer at ECU where we spend
our time in classes instead of
some tropical resort thinking
about how we are going to differ
ourselves in the fall
Well, Pirate football is just
around the corner and Coach
Steve Logan and his troops will
see what they are made of during
the first five games of the season.
On Sept 3, the Pirates will travel
to the orange capital of the world,
Knoxville, Tennessee. From what
I have been hearing, ECU was al-
lotted just 4,000 tickets to a sta-
dium that holds well over 99,000
people. Come on! I believe some-
one needs to make a little phone
call to the U.T. athletic depart-
ment. Pirate fans will be more
than willing to travel to Knoxville
to see the game, and I think that
just 4,000 tickets isn't going to
satisfy the needs of hungry Pirate
fans. Hopefully, this trip to the
Volunteer state will be a little
more pleasant than the one last

How about Kevin Garnett.
He's the high school sensation
that UNC Tarheel fans are drool-

Garnett recently declared himself
eligible for June's NBA draft.
HELLO Mr. Garnett! Yes, you are
good - very good, in fact, for a
high school player. Notice I men-
tioned high school player. Have
you watched the NBA lately?
Garnett does not have the physi-
cal presence to play with such
players as Hakeem Olajuwon and
David Robinson. I believe some-
one needs to set Kevin down and
have a long talk with him. I rec-

Looking at the local televi-

to respect their sports depart-

tremendous job with what they
have to work with. The Washing-
