Around the State
(AP) - A bill introduced in
the state Senate could help so-
lidify North Carolina's place in
the highly competitive film-mak-
ing business.
But infighting within the
state's film industry may side-
track anticipated growth.
Some experts say the state's
film industry is approaching a
crucial point, where it makes the
leap from simply being a location
for Hollywood films to becoming
an independent hub of a
multibillion-dollar industry.
In the past 15 years, North
Carolina, especially Wilmington,
has become a favored spot for
film refugees from California and
New York lured by a film-friendly,
right-to-work state where it costs
less to make movies.
(AP) - A $50 million-a-year
state program to put welfare re-
cipients to work isn't working
very well, according to research-
ers at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill.
A five-year study of almost
5,500 recipients found that par-
ticipants in JOBS - Job Oppor-
tunities and Basic Skills Training
- are slightly more likely to find
a job than other welfare recipi-
ents.
But they do not make sig-
nificantly more money when they
do, and the program costs at least
14 times mo-e than it saves the
state in welfare costs for each par-
ticipant, said Dennis Orthner,
who directed the study by the
School of Social Work at UNC-
CH.
Around the Country
(AP) - A subway train
slammed into the rear another
train in New York Monday in the
middle of a bridge over the East
River, killing one person and in-
juring at least 40, authorities
said.
The crash happened at about
6:10 a.m. on the Williamsburg
Bridge, which links Brooklyn and
Manhattan, said Transit Author-
ity spokesman Bob Slovak.
Emergency Medical Service
spokesman David Billig said one
person died and 40 to 45 others
were taken to hospitals. He had
no detail on how severe the inju-
ries were.
(AP) � Spouses and children
of legal aliens in New York would
get visa preference under a fed-
eral advisory panel's recommen-
dations that call for cutting legal
immigration by one-third, The
New York Times reported today.
Around the World
(AP) - Rescue teams headed
home from demolished
Neftegorsk, Sakhalin Island, their
chances of finding additional
earthquake survivors waning.
With them came one bright spot:
a 6-year-old boy unearthed from
the ruins.
Early today, the confirmed
death toll from the May 28 quake
rose to 1,197, with crews still dig-
ging through the debris in search
of more bodies.
Campus
roadways set to

Wendy Rountree
Assistant News Editor
Plans to build a new entrance
to campus and extend College Hill
Drive next year will probably confuse
alumni when they return to reminisce
about their college years.
Bruce Flye, director of facilities
planning, design and construction
said the North Carolina Department
of Transportation (NCDOT) approved
two road projects for the university
late last year. Both projects are listed
in the university's Master Plan, which
was published in 1992. The univer-
sity created the Plan to handle the
expectant student body increase in
the future.
The first of the two road projects
will be Library Drive. It will run be-
tween the Public Safety building and
SlayUmstead residence halls, circle
in front of the then completed Joyner
Library and tie into Ninth Street.
Richard Brown, vice chancellor
for business affairs said the Drive will
have significant impact on the cam-
pus and will serve as the university's
new formal entrance.
"It will realign the campus to
10th Street, our new front door
Brown said.
Currently. Flye said the univer-
sity considers 10th Street to be its
"back door" entrance. He said he be-
lieves the university needs the new
entrance way because the university
is growing and changing.
"It will give us a much more for-
mal entrance for a university of this
size Flye said.
After construction the front of
Joyner Library will face 10th Street
not the center of campus. Brown said
the new entrance and the new library
will compliment each other.
"It should be an extremely at-
tractive t itrance way into campus,
focusing on the library
Flye said the new entrance will
also make the library more accessible
to people.
"It will make it easier for out-
side people to access the area
The Library Drive project,
scheduled to begin in June 1996, will
cost $825,000.
"They (NCDOT) are paying for
it. doing the design work and work-
ing with us to see that it suits our
needs Flye said.
The other project. College Hill
Drive, will cost $600,000 and con-
struction is scheduled to start in the
summer of 1997.
"We will relocate College Hill
Drive Flye said. "It will go along
the property lines of Eppes Middle
School and our property
College Hill Drive will no longer
run in front of Jones, Aycock and
Scott but behind them. Brown said
this will give College Hill residents a
feeling of community.
"We will turn College Hill into a
community by eliminating the exist-
ing road Brown said. "The area will
be a place where students can inter-
act with each other and have recre-

people aware of adaptive technologies
that can help people with disabilities.
"One of the challenges of this
field is to keep up to date and to be
aware of advances that are taking
place through adaptive technologies
said C.C. Rowe, director of the office
for disability support services and

The University of North Carolina
Mathematics and Science Education
Network (MSEN), in cooperation with
the North Carolina Department of
Public Instruction (NCDPI), will be
sponsoring summer courses in science
and math for public school teachers
of grades K-8.
The MSEN is a statewide pro-
gram established in 1984 by the leg-
islature to improve math and science
education in schools.
"It's a wonderful program said
Katharine Hodgin, director of the
ECU Department of Math and Science
at ECU. "Because these courses pri-
marily deal with the middle grades,
the teachers will be doing a lot of fun
and interesting things. They will get
to do a lot of hands-on activities
One of the courses being offered
is Teaching for Understanding for 6th
to 8th grade science teachers. It will
be held from June 12-23. This course
will be taught by Dr. Helen Park and
assistant, Rita Elliot of Pitt County
Schools.

Study shows effects of sirens, lights
. ximm'WWfc-
Jon Beckett
Staff Wittoi
ECU recently published a study in-
dicating that ambulances using lights
and sirens get to the hospital only 435
seconds fester than they would with-
out using tights or sirens.
The study could lead to reduced
usage of lights and sirens, allowing am-
bulances to avoid the dangers associ-
ated wttJithem.
Dr. Richard Hunt, associate pro-
fessor m the ECU School of Medicine
oversaw-the study, which analyzed the
travel times of ambulances from emer-
gency scenes to the hospital. In the
study, Hunt compared the travel times
of ambulances using lights and sirens
to those not using them. To accomplish
this, an ambulance not using lights and
sirens would retrace the route of a pre-
vious run, during the same time of day
and week the actual run had taken
place.
Hunt's study concluded that am-
bulances using lights and sirens reach
the hospital on average of only 43.5
seconds fester. Ambulances using lights
and sirens can exceed the speed limit,
while those that do not must obey all
traffic laws. Hunt said
Lawrence Brown, a paramedic from
the ECU School of Medicine, was e-
sponsible for collecting the data for re-
peat runs without lights and sirens He
also assisted HunHn analyiing the data.
Brown said there are reasons why the
difference in travel time is so small.
"If you're driving an ambulance in
town, and there's a lot of traffic, even if
people try to pull over and get out of
the way, it's going to take time for them
to do that, if traffic's backed up Brown
said. "You still have to stop at stop signs
and stop lights. You have to stop and
make sure nothing's coming, and then
go through. So the things that slow you
down, still slow you down, they just
don't slow you
tions that are performed at emergency
departments can be performed by the
ambulance personnel. I'm not sure that
most people in the city realize how
highly trained they are
Due in part to the findings of this
study, Greenville Fire and Rescue are
reviewing their guidelines for using
lights and sirens. If ambulances can
decrease the use of lights and sirens,
they may be able to avoid some of the
dangers associated
"You still have to
stop at stop signs
down quite as
much
For most
people trans-
ported by ambu
lance, it doesn't
matter if they get
to the hospital
43.5 seconds
slower. Most of
the care a patient would receive at the
hospital can be administered in an am-
bulance.
4 "The EMS Emergency Medical
Service) providers in the city of
Greenville are very highly trained, and
they're able to perform many of the life
saving procedures that would be per-
formed in an emergency department
Brown said. "If you need to have a medi-
cine administrator for a heart attack,
most of the emergency medicines can
be given by the people on the ambu
lance. If you're a diabetic, and you need
to get sugar, the ambulance people can
do that
"Most of the life saving interven-

with them.
"The reason
for using lights and
sirens is so the traf-
fic will allow you to
move by them or
around them, in a
manner that you
wouldn't be able to
do if you weren't
using lights and sirens Brown said.
"Assuming that everybody else lets you
do that that's fine, but if there's one
person who's not paying attention, now
you have a problem.
"In terms of using lights and si-
rens to go through an intersection. Pre-
sumably everybody else is supposed to
stop when they see your red lights and
sirens, and hopefully if they don't, you
will see them. But there is always the
possibility that as you proceed through
that intersection, somebody is not pay-
ing attention, who is coming from
around a corner, or you haven't seen
them, will run into you, or you will run
into them.
Brown said this study does not in-
dicate that ambulances using lights and
sirens are more likely to crash.
"We haven't measured that at all
Brown said. "But if we assume that
when you're running lights and sirens,
you're operating the ambulance outside
normal traffic patterns, it's pretty easy
to see that operating an ambulance
outside of normal traffic patterns is
going to increase your risk, as opposed
to just driving in normal traffic
This particular study was com-
pleted and therefore applicable only to
Greenville. Brown confirmed that other
cities are interested in the time savings
factor, but said because of geographi-
cal differences, eacn city will have to do
their own study.
"My personal experience has been,
the greater the distance to the hospital,
the greater the time savings will be
(when using lights and sirens) Brown
said. "It's more a function of distance
to the hospital than of population den-
sity
Brown suspects ambulance drivers
will have a mixed response to the pros-
pect of using lights and sirens less of-
ten.
"There's a lot that we do in EMS
that we do because we've always done
it that way Brown said. "That's prob-
ably true with all professions. It seems
to be very true with us, and until we do
these kinds of studies to figure out what
really does make a difference, it's going
to be hard to change

The new system will also provide
several expansion opportunities for
residence halts.
They (residence halls) will have
four digit dialing to main campus and
will also have the capability to provide
voice mail Cram said.
Financial Aid is hoping to gain
much needed phone lines.
"One of the things I think is go-
ing to happen is that each person in
our office will have an individual phone
line said Rose Mary Stelma, director
of financial aid. "Students may not
necessarily know my direct phone num-
ber, but if a call comes into our gen-
eral number and 1 take that call in
the future the receptionist will trans-
fer that call to my number so the gen-
eral number is available again
A voice response system may be
in financial aid's future, but Stelma said
that would not answer all of financial
aid's problems. Although the employ-
ees will soon have voice mail, answer-
ing student's questions takes time,
Stelma said.
"I don't want to get a system
where you have to push 15 buttons
before you get to talk to a human be-
ing because a lot of times when you
call financial aid you just have one

The expansion opportunties for
the new fiber optic system are almost
limitless, according to NSSI intern John
Matijevic.
"You can be at home or any other
location if a classroom is full they
can have another classroom where the

Our View
Plan on having fun, fun, fun in the summer sun, because all
the gyms and weight rooms are closed. That's right, despite the
fact that summer school elite pay activity fees, the campus rec-
reation department closes its doors every day two hours before
dark. Forget weekends.
Most weight rooms and swimming pools awake at the crack
of dawn and close between six and eight in the evening depend-
ing on the day of the week. This is not to say these facilities are
open the entire time. For a campus of 6,000 strong, the only
facility open all day is Christenbury Weight Room. The rest open
and close in short intervals like class changes. Get a workout in
early on Fridays because if it is open, it shuts down mid after-
noon. Nothing is open on the weekends except Minges pool Sun-
days 2-5 p.m.
The current system shuts out everybody unless they drop
everything and exercise in short spurts during the day. Next
time anyone is in class, tell the prof the report can't be done
before 1:00 p.m because Christenbury pool will close. If he
says Minges is open from 4-7 p.m. on weekdays tell him about
the bag-boy work which pays his salary. If he gets hostile and
challenges you to basketball at high noon, tell him the game
better only last an hour because the gym closes at 1 p.m
Campus Rec says no one shows during the summer and it is
expensive to keep these facilities open day and night for so few.
Demand is a key factor in availabilty. Why should a pool or
weight room be open for just two people on a Friday afternoon?
Good point, but if each of these facilities were more acces-
sible, the problem would dissolve. Keep only one pool, weight
room and gym open from 8 a.m. to at least 8:00 at night is the
solution.
For starters, more people will use the facilities because they
are open longer than an Easy Glider infomercial. Every day stu-
dents have to juggle classes and jobs while faculty teach and do
research. Staff from student activities to maintenance are cut
out completely the old way. When they leave after five, most
places are closed. Longer hours makes things more accessible
to the huge demands time puts on everyone.
Next, this system will utilize the smaller resources such as
staffing and funding better. Combining staff and closing down
facilities could actually save money.
Finally, if a school of 18,000 can use two pools and a few
weightrooms during the year, surely a third of that can adjust
to just one of each during the summer school.
It's not a perfect world, but every now and then the admin-
istration can do something which pleases everyone. The current
system doesn't take working students or anyone else into ac-
count except for short spots during the day. This is unfair be-
cause students pay the same activities fees they pay in the fall.
Faculty and staff work just as hard in the summer and deserve
the same use of the facilities. Open up one facilty for longer
hours and everybody wins. Perhaps, campus rec should do more
than read the campus motto, "To Serve
Everyone's
saying how
important it is
to exercise. Is
it more
important to
exercise then
to go to class?
It seems that
way since the
gym's only
open during
classtime.
Our preoccupation
with the life of death
Mi
I got into a conversation a few
months back on what exactly is the
fascination with the Faces of Death
home video series. One of the points
made was, "Of course it's a home
video series who in their right
minds would shell out the $6 to go
see such a lurid tangle of images in
the theater?"
Immediately after I posed this
question, I realized that the people
who would indeed want to see it up
on the big screen are the same gut-
hungry sycophants who rent the
tapes on a Saturday night and hoot
at the television with a roomful of
their friends.
Grim horror. The final frontier
in rwo-D shock. Only the realist of
the real will do anymore in a world
where no one is frightened by obvi-
ously fake mass-murderers and gro-
tesque beings from somewhere out-
side of our concept of reality.
It's another sign of the Death of
Imagination. We don't need to sus-
pend our disbelief for 92 minutes any-
more. The whole idea of realism does
it for us, all in grainy, completely be-
lievable film footage.
Pre-packaged violence. It holds
us, captivates us, keeps us thumbing
the "pause" button on the VCR ev-
ery time we head for the kitchen so
we won't have to chance missing the
messiest moment in cinematic history
because we were trying to wrestle
free that stubborn bottle of beer
that's gotten wedged behind the let-
tuce in the back of the crisper.
Often, though, there's as much
laughter aimed at the screen as there
Brian W. ight
Opinion Columnist
"We laugh at
death � like
much of life, it
can degenerate
into ludicrous
absurdity
are exclamations of revulsion. We're
watching people die for the most
pointless reasons, some of the time
in the silliest of ways. We laugh at
death - like much of life, it can de-
generate into ludicrous absurdity.
This adheres to the better-thee-
than-me theory. It's better for thee
to be on the underside of a 20-man
FBI-pileup than me !
The Faces of Death videos, and
their brother and sister versions,
Traces of Death, Red on the High-
way, and on and on, are more testa-
ments to our stupidity and foolish
pride than to the frailty of the hu-
man condition. Our fatal blunders
are splashed, sometimes literally, up
on the screen in no-longer-living
color, vulgar, blatant, and real.
In a way, it's exhilarating to be
able to take a peek at some of
death's more grisly handiwork with-
out actually running the risk of get-
ting any on you. It's one thing to
see someone grated to hamburger
in an auto wreck, but present it in
just the right way on videotape, and
we're not quite so revolted to bear
witness to it.
Everyone stares long and hard
at such things when they drive past
them on the highway. Of course we
do, we're safe ii. u own cars, with
no embarrassment at our own mor-
bid fascination. Watching it on tele-
vision is probably the safest form of
disaster rubbernecking, where you
can look for as long as you like, with
no policemen telling you to move on,
that there's nothing more to see.
But there is more to see, isn't
there? With the advent of video,
there's pler'y more to see, and with
the benefit of rewind, pause and fast-
forward, we can see it as many times
as we want.
We're out for gore. No more
middle ground. The same Texas
Chainsaw Massacre that scared the
hell out of people decades ago now
only garners yawns, demands that
the tape be ejected and replaced
with something saucier, and the oc-
casional nostalgia for those semi-
thrilling days of yestersplat.
Ultraviolence sells, in film, car-

It's a bad tune for ECU
The band Pink Floyd released
their song "Another Brick in the Wall"
in 1979. The trademark of the piece
was a group of school children sing-
ing the chorus: "We don't need no
education This famous phrase is now
in danger of being rewritten by the
North Carolina General Assembly. The
new Republican majority is joyfully
singing their own rendition of this
piece as they swing the budget cleaver
in the State House. Their version is a
combination of "You Don't Need No
Education" and "The Tax Cut Waltz
Last year the State of North Caro-
lina enjoyed a $400 million budget sur-
plus. This is part of North Ca-olina's
long history of financial responsibil-
ity. State law requires the budget be
balanced every year. The extra $400
million in last year's budget was put
into a rainy day fund to balance the
budget in case of an economic down-
turn in the future. The Democrats
were criticized for not having given a
tax cut instead.
Raleigh has changed dramatically
since the republican tidal wave hit.
The new Republican House is prom-
ising to slash spending to pay for a
series of tax cuts Two- thirds of the
state budget is educational spending;
therefore, it only logically follows that
the deepest cuts will be in the univer-
sities and public schools.
Bobby Etheridge, the superinten-
dent of public instruction must un-
derstand how Bosnians feel after be-
ing shelled for a month. It doesn't
seem Chechen rebels have taken as
many losses as the N.C. Department
of Public Instruction. One almost ex-
pects to see sandbags in the windows
of the Education Building in Raleigh.
The overwhelming majority of the
House spending cuts are in state
spending for education. This affects
Thomas Blue
Opinion Columnist
more than just the Department of
Public Instruction.
It threatens the University of
North Carolina System as well. The
Republican budget plan that passed
the N.C. House threatens to cut 60
positions at East Carolina University.
Remember, the Ceneral Assembly also
promises to raise tuition 25 percent
for students not graduating on time.
Of course, the Republican budget plan
also promises a three percent tuition
increase for in-state students and a
much larger one for out of state stu-
dents. It will also limit graduate stu-
dent assistantships. The music has just
begun to play.
ECU Vice Chancellor for Business
Affairs Richard Brown said in a recent
interview that cuts at this level will
affect services at East Carolina. "We're
very lean to begin with in terms of
funding to academic departments,
funding for equipment and support
staff he said. "This budget hits us in
places where we are already deficient
in terms of total budget" That's just
a polite way of saying these cuts will
affect the quality of services that are
already lacking at ECU.
While the N.C. House is slashing
education spending, they are gleefully
singing the classic tune "We're in the
Money The dollars saved from cuts
in public education are helping repeal
the Intangibles Tax. If you are like
most North Carolinians, you probably
haven't even heard of this tax, much
less ever paid it Eighty percent of this
windfall goes to the wealthiest 10
percent of the population.
Rep. Toby Fitch (D-Wilson) pro-
posed that the state repeal the sales
tax on food instead. He argued this
would benefit ail North Carolinians-
-not just the wealthy. However, House
Republicans soundly defeated this bill.
The House Democrats have little
choice but to sit on the back row and
watch the budget plan sail through
the Republican dominated chamber.
ECU's last hope is the joint con-
ference between the House and Sen-
ate Budget plans. The House bill cuts
$2.3 million at ECU, compared to only
$176,00 in the Senate plan. Sen. Ed
Warren (D-Pitt), Greenville's senator,
vows to fight cuts at ECU. However,
his counterpart Rep. Henry Aldridge
(R-Pitt), supports the House budget
anil the cuts for ECU. This will surely
make it difficult for East Carolina as
the budget battle unfolds.
The issue is more than simply
protecting funding for the largest
employer in Pitt County. It is a mat-
ter of preserving quality public edu-
cation for North Carolina's future.
Community colleges and public uni-
versities have been a major part of
North Carolina's tremendous eco-
nomic growth during the past 30
years. While house Republicans may
want to dance to the music of "Tax
Cut Fever they may instead rewrite
the words to "Happy Days Are Here
Again

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor
The American Revolution, the
Civil War, World War I, World War II,
Vietnam, and Desert Storm. Millions
of Americans have made the supreme
sacrifice for this nation. It doesn't
matter if the cause was right it doesn't
matter if they wanted to go, or if the
government told them to go. Those
men and women of all ages, races, and
religions still died for our country. On
Memorial Day, we honor them. Our fed-
eral government banks, and businesses
honor th se men and women, but our
school doesn't? Why? Why is it that
our school recognizes and shuts down
for the birthday of a great American,
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who gave
his life for a very important cause, but
it won't recognize the millions of Ameri-
cans who gave their lives so that all
Americans could be free. This letter is
not intended as a ploy to just get an-
other day out of school so we can lay
around. It is also understood that sum-
mer school is a very intense session in
which every day counts for many days
of a regular semester, but I am sincerely
bothered by this. Why doesn't our
school recognize these Americans? If
I were to give my life for my country,
the people in it and the freedom we
so often take for granted, I hope I
would be remembered and recognized
just as much as any other American
who died for a cause they believed in.

Local underground bands
emerge for AIDS benefit
Brandon Waddell
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
AIDS, an acronym for Acquired
Immune Deficiency Syndrome, is a
disease that has received its fair share
of attention over the past several
years. Spawned from this awakening,
both factual and ignorant propa-
ganda have made their way into the
human psyche. Due to the huge
amount of AIDS and HIV informa-
tion, most people do know the ba-
sics. One problem, among many, is
the lack of funding desperately
needed for research, medication and
education.
Fortunately, there are those in
Greenville who selflessly give of
themselves everyday. Their mission
is not only to properly educate the
community, but also to help those
infected with HIV, the AIDS-causing
virus; enter PICASO (Pitt County
AIDS Service Organization).
Since 1991, this collective group
of men and women generously vol-
unteer their time and energy to com-
bat this dreaded disease. PICASO is
a private, non-profit, incorporated or-
ganization dedicated to serving those
persons infected with HIVAIDS as
well as their friends and families, in
the Pitt County area.
"At PICASO, we provide several
services; AIDS education in the com-
munity and speaking events, nutri-
tional education and direct services
including medication, buddy pro-
grams and support groups said

O.K. men, listen up! What
you're about to read will change
your life. Today's topic is "Advice
on Dating" - from a female per-
spective.
The story begins in B.C. (be-
fore conversation). This is the
time between the first moment
you see her (your eyes meet
across a solution of hydrochloric
acid and starch in biology lab)
and you work up the nerve to
speak to her (sometime after
graduation). The first bit of ad-
vice is don't wait so long! Most
girls will not run screaming from
a guy because he says hello.
However, a girl is very likely
to run screaming if you choose
an opening line like, "Your laugh
sounds just like that hyena in The
Lion King or "That's quite a set
of hooters you've got there! You
must be very proud References
to a girl's chest are not cute. The
only thing a line like that will get
you is ignored or slapped. Just be
yourself. Don't try to impress a
girl with your "romantic side

the worst pick-up line she ever

want a conversation starter? Why
not try, "You have a beautiful

here)

Gregg Allinson, PICASO's executive
director.
Funding being a primary con-
cern of the organization, PICASO is
always interested in new ideas to
generate money. Only a third of the
organization's expenses are financed
by the United Way. As far as cover-
ing the rest of their tab, they rely on
private grants and fundraisers.
Local punkhardcore musicians
collaborated their idea of having an
AIDS benefit concert and brought it
to Allinson's attention. "I welcome
anyone who would like to donate
their time and talent; our goal is to
make everyone aware of AIDS. It
doesn't matter whether the musical
act is Nine Inch Nails or Lawrence
Welk, if one or two people learn
something, we won Allinson said.

this type of music, we will attract this

m THE INEVITABLE �
HNS
Squirrel Nut
Zippers
The Inevitable
Squirrel Nut
Zippers
Kris Hoffler
Staff Writer
It's not often in this time of car-
bon-copy bands that someone dares
to do something totally different.
The Squirrel Nut Zippers are from
the Chapel Hill area and are totally
different. But what's different?
There's nothing new under the sun,
right?
How about playing music from
70 years ago? No one does that,
right? Many people have never
heard it to begin with. But that's
what The Squirrel Nut Zippers do.
The Zippers are a cross be-
tween many sounds of the'20s and
'30s, but are especially kin to King
Oliver's Creole Jazz band. King
Oliver flourished in the days of flap-
pers and prohibition; his sound was
energetic, jumpy and famous for its
double improvisation. The Zippers'
sound is much like Creole jazz, but
it's a little simpler with less impro-
visation and much more singing.
The
Squirrel Nut
Zippers are
comprised of
seven mem-
bers, most of
whom play
more than
one instru-
ment. They
have drums,
trumpet,
string bass,
banjo, alto
and baritone
sax, guitar
and vocals.
The question that keeps nagging
me is how did these people find
each other? Many people have
never heard this music, much less
desire to play it.
The disc opens with "Lover's
Lane "Gettin high on Bourbon
and Champagne just can't com-
pare to what we share on Lover's
Lane singers Katherine Whalen
and James Mathus croon over the
energetic sounds of the sax and
banjo. The tempo is fast, conducive
to the Charleston.
The next track is much slower;
it sounds like a funeral march. The
vocals are done by Whalen, the one
female member of the band. To say
that someone sounds like Billie
Holiday is risky, but Whalen comes
close. Her voice is creamy and
croons out the lyrics with a mourn-
ful quality. The addition of the vio-
lin and the muted trumpet are great
on this track and add much to the
vintage sound they are trying to
produce. Whalen really shines on
"Anything but Love" and "Wished
for You I suppose she is the bal-
lad singer for the band; all the
tracks she sings on are slow.
My personal favorite is "Good
Enough for Granda�j " Oh man,
what a tune! This one's a foot-
stompin' ragtime thing that throbs
with energy. The banjo strums and
the trumpet wails along as the
singer lays down the story of
granddad. "If it's good enough for
Granddad, it's good enough for me.
The way it was is the way it's got to
See NUT page 6
her reaction to Braveheart this
way: "Mel Gibson in a kilt for three
hours, riding a horse. What else do
you need?" But there is more to this
film than just Gibson's rugged
charm.
Braveheart is Mel Gibson's sec-
ond directoral ef-
fort, his first be-
ing The Man
Without a Face.
Like the title
character in
Gibson's earlier
film, Braveheart's
main character,
William Wallace
(Mel Gibson), pos-
sesses a keen
sense of justice.
When Wallace
fights he does so
only when certain
his stance is cor-
rect - and worth
fighting for.

of Scotland, Braveheart retells the
story of Wallace's legendary battles
against the British. Wallace fought
to end the oppressive tyranny of
England. Though Wallace wanted
nothing more with his life than to
raise children and run a farm, the
English dominance of Scotland be-
came too great for Wallace to stom-
ach. Wallace's reasons for fighting
are crystallized in one word: free-
dom.
As Braveheart opens the En-
glish nobles have been granted the
right to sleep with each Scottish
bride on her wedding night. Be-
cause of this rule, Wallace weds in
secret. Soon after being married
though, a British officer tries to
rape Wallace's wife (Catherine
McCormick). Wallace stops the
crime then puts his wife on a horse
for her to escape. Unfortunately she
is captured and
killed in order
to draw Wallace
back to the vil-
lage.
Only upon
his wife's death
does Wallace
become com-
pletely aware of
just how unjust
the British laws
are. Armed
with simple
weapons and
outnumbered,
Wallace leads
the Scottish
peasants in all out war against En-
gland. In battle after battle the
emotional savagery of the Scottish
best the detached precision of the
English.
The country of Scotland is not
united behind Wallace, however.
The Scottish nobles hesitate to
fight England because of the plen-
tiful land they have been given. In-
stead the nobles side with the Brit-
ish to curry their favor. Wallace's
mercenary army thus has two ob-
stacles to surmount if freedom is
to be won.

Gibson stages
Braveheart with
assured grace.
The battles
maintain their
ferocity while still
being poetic
etic. Much of Sergei Eisenstein, the
famed Russian director, can be seen
in Gibson's work. The battle se-
quences look like they could have
been lifted from Eisenstein's
Alexander Nevsky.
The nearest recent audiences
have come to seeing battles this
bloody were in Kenneth Branagh's
Henry V. Though Braveheart lacks
the complexity of Branagh's film,
Gibson has effectively captured (as
did Branagh) the thrill of battle.
Gibson obviously labored for
an incredible amount of time on
this picture. A literal cast of thou-
sands all charging ahead, slashing
swords and screaming at the top of
their lungs must have been a bit
like trying to control a kindergar-
ten class on a field trip to the zoo.
Gibson not only stages the battles
well, but he manages to evoke good
performances from everyone in the
cast. In a film filled with less-than-
household names, nary a weak
character can be found.
Several flaws in Braveheart un-
dermine its overall power and make
it less of an epic and more a three-
hour entertainment. One problem
is the pristine picture painted of
Wallace. As in The Man Without a
Face, Gibson wants to convey the
genuine virtuosity of his hero so
much that he fails to give him any
complexity. Wallace seems to have
no character flaws. The film wants
to portray a legend, but in three
hours some complexity needs to
emerge.

The bartenders are Dave Rich-
mond and Jim Matheson. Culture
Club, Taco, Corey Hart, The Mary
Tyler Moore theme song and one-
hit-wonder groups are brushed off
and served up hot.
While most of the planet has
turned vinyl into CD's, Richmond
and Matheson have been quietly col-
lecting for years. Much of their col-
lection has come from CD alley or
Quicksilver, but they are always in
search of the long forgotten. Where
can anyone find Toni Basil of
'Mickey' fame or Taco's "Puttin' on
the Ritz" anymore?
"Wherever I go. I am constantly
thinking about the show and pick-
ing stuff up said Richmond, a
graduating senior in political sci-
ence.
Matheson, next year's produc-
tion manager, has been collecting
for a long time. He has several hun-
dred albums.
I have been collecting ever since
the early '80s Matheson said.
Matheson transferred from NC
State where he first got interested
in radio.
"Several of my friends were DJs
and they told me 1 had a good radio
voice. So, I tried it out and got
hooked said Matheson, a nursing
major.
Richmond has been working at
WZMB for two years putting in his
dues as a DJ before he got the pre-
mier spot. He started hosting the
Retro show in January in a meager
two-hour time slot before the show
expanded to four hours.
Richmond has always been in-
terested in music and wanted to be
on the radio.
"I have always liked music and
in high school people told me that I
had a good voice, so I got involved
at WZMB Richmond said.
Richmond hopes to pursue a ca-
reer in broadcasting when he gradu-
ates this summer.
i am trying to get another job
as a DJ in the area said Richmond
who also DJs Retro parties. "I like
doing Retro shows because it brings
back great memories
Richmond said it is hard to de-
cide what his favorite flashback
groups are. Though he has lots of
albums and CD's which range from
Asia to a collection of TV theme
songs, Richmond says he likes them
all. Dire Straits is Matheson's top
choice but he said it is haid to de-
cide which is best.
The dynamic duo's show is more
than just music. Wacky commercials,
like Pee Wee Herman voice overs for
sexual solitaire, add spice to the
show, as does the infamous Retro
Poetry. The latter activity involves
reading the lyrics Of strange and ab-
surd songs out loud.
The duo tries to plan the show
with a theme, but the overwhelm-
ing requests they get really dictate
the show.
"We get more requests than any
other show Richmond said. "One
time we got over 50 calls in an hour.
We get requests up until 11:30 p.m.

Another problem is the exces-
sive amount of time spent away
from Wallace. Too many shots of
the KinK of England at his court
and far. far too many scenes of the
next king of Scotland consulting
with his dying father slow down
Braveheart
Gibson is not an artist. He
needs to keep his vision simple. If
Braveheart had been under two
hours then the one-sided portrayal
of Wallace would have worked and
then Gibson could have left many
of the duller scenes on the cutting
room floor.
Still, few stars in Hollywood
are as big as Gibson and my friend
does have a point about his appeal.
Braveheart works well as heroic en-
tertainment. It moves much
quicker, even at three hours, than
did Rob Roy.

O.K back to the guys. Now that
you've spoken to her. what do you do?
The logical next step is to ask her out.
Unfortunately, in today's society girls
have to be really careful about who
they date. So make it easy on them.
Follow these two simple guide-
lines. First of all, invite her to a very
public place. Some good choices? A
sporting event, a museum, a concert
or even a movie. Some women even
like going to parks or school play-
grounds. These days most women
don't feel comfortable being alone
with a guy they don't know and trust.
So a definite first-date no-no is ask-
ing her back to your place for "din-
ner In a public place, she'll feel more
relaxed and the date will go much
more smoothly.
Secondly, suggest that she meet
you wherever you re going. That way,
if she begins to feel uncomfortable,
she won't feel trapped. This isn't
meant to offend anyone. Most guys
out there are basically decent, but a
few bad apples have made these pre-
cautions necessary. So don't take it
personally. Just know that she will
appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Well, you've spoken, you've asked
her out, and now you're getting ready
for the date. A tip-don't wear dirty

There is one instrumental on
The Inevitable Squirrel 'ut Zip-
pers: "Lugubrious Whin Whang
And it's a hell of a tune, with the
banjo and guitar trading off solos.
The song builds and builds and then
ends with a crunch.
I just can't help but wonder how
these people came up with the idea
for this band. I mean who would
think to play music from the age of
the depression in the techno '90s?
Being a big jazz fan I would natu-
rally take a liking to it. This stuff may
not be everyone's cup of tea, but it
is definitely worth listening to.
The Squirrel Nut Zippers are a
band of unique qualities and may
never get the recognition they de-
serve. Take a break from the screech-
ing guitars and give a listen to
America's past: this is party music
for any occasion. I highly recommend
it.

haven't had any trouble getting
bands to play this benefit: in fact,
at one time we had too many bands.
There are nine bands playing the
event, which will start at 3 p.m each
band has one hour to set up and
play.
"I've really had no problem or-
ganizing the event: these bands play
for fun and they embrace the oppor-
tunity to benefit the community on
a low-key basis such as Band Aids
Smith continued. "The band mem-
bers usually play for just enough
money to get them from place to
place. But none will be paid for play-
ing Band Aids: all the musicians will
be staying with friends in town or
any availible living room couch
Other local hardcore music en-

seum. In fact, don't wear dirty jeans
and a scuzzy T-shirt anywhere. Girls
appreciate it when a guy tries to look
nice for them. That doesn't mean don
a three-piece suit, but a comfortable
pair of jeans or slacks and a nice shirt
definitely make a good impression.
Now-the most important part of
the story how to treat your date.
Girls like to be treated like ladies. So
open doors to your heart's content.
But when it comes to who should pay
for a date, the answer is not so
simple. Discuss it ahead of time.
Some girls think that whoever asked
for the date should pay. And there
are guys out there who refuse to let
a girl pay for her share. So, to solve
the problem, talk about it before the
date or, to follow the advice of an-
other friend, take a picnic lunch so
that you don't have to pay for any-
thing.
Well, the story is near the end.
We've reached A.D. (After Date). Be
sure to tell her that you had a nice
time, but if the sparks aren't there,
say so. Nothing makes a girl angrier
than a guy who says he will call and
then doesn't. And if you're feeling
some chemistry, chances are she's
feeling it too. So say so. To go out
again, or not to go out again, that is
the question. Sorry guys, but you'll
have to solve that one on your own.

Boys of summer look
ahead to next season

The ECU baseball team finished up the 1995 season with a
29-26 record afteruroppingback-to-backtoumamentgames.

Staff Writer
� � - .
ECU"s baseball season ended on
May 18 after back-to-back losses to
the University of Richmond and the
College of William and Man- in the
CAA Tournament, held in nearby
Kinston. The losses dropped the Pi-
rates' record to a disappointing 29-
26. The dismal showing surprised
many fans, who earlier basked in the
glow of ECU's blazing 11-0 start.
"Like any good club, we had to
improve and we never did said ECU
head coach Gary Overton. "It was dis-
appointing that we were no better at
the end of the season than we were
at the beginning
Although the inexperience of his
young team showed in the latter half
of the season, Overton said it was
season.
Injuries robbed ECU of freshman
hurler Billy Layton and 1994 CAA
second-teamer Jason Head. Layton
was lost when he went down with an
elbow injury against the Richmond
Spiders early in the season. He was
credited with the victory, improving
his record to 4-0, but remained side-
lined for six weeks due to the injury.
The loss had a devestating affect on
the club.
"You could see the deflation in
the team when layton went down
Overton said.
Also detrimental to the Pirates'
success was the loss of rising senior
Jason Head, who was sidelined with
a hamstring injury in a late-season
series against Georgia Southern.
Head, who stepped forward as the
emotional leader of the young ECU
squad, was batting .295 with five
Overton in Kinston.
In the heat of Division I tourna-
ment competition, Overton was
forced to play freshmen in situations
they may not have been entirely ready
for.
"At one point, we played seven
true freshmen during the tourna-
ment he said.
Even with the mediocre season
and the early exit from the tourna-
ment, the ECU skipper pointed out
the many positives to the season.
Lamont Edwards finished the season
with a .340 batting average to lead
the Pirates, also finishing tops on the
club in at-bats. runs, hits and triples.
Freshman hurler Patrick
Dunham showed flashes of brilliance
by pitching a one-hitter against N.C.
State, and finishing the season with
a 3.28 ERA and a solid 7-5 record.
Chad Newton was also impressive,
pitching seven innings of no-hit ball
against UNC and finishing the sea-
son with a 2-3 mark in 17 appear-
ances.
Overton also saw team positives
in strong victories over ACC rivals
N.C. State, UNC and Duke, a fore-
shadowing of just how good this team
can be.
Now, with the season behind
them, Gary Overton and his Pirates
are looking toward the future.
"Once again we will play a very
demanding schedule, with ACC and
SEC opponents he said. "While we
felt that we had one of our better
defensive units in years, we are work-
ing hard to recruit better offensive
players and we have signed a larger
incoming class than we have in quite
a while
Overton and his squad are look-
ing forward to contending for the
1996 CAA title and returning to the
NCAA regionals once again. With the
experience of this season behind
them and forecasts of a healthy team
ahead, ECU's baseball future could
shine as bright as championship sea-
sons of the past.

Irates take collegiate
ultimate title
Staff Reports
The East Carolinian
On Memorial Day ECU's Irates
ultimate frisbee squad became only
the second team in the history of the
sport to repeat as national champions
after topping UC-Santa Cruz in the
1995 finals.
The Irate squad traveled to the
University of Illinois to defend their
title as Collegiate National Champi-
ons. They entered this year's tourna-
ment as the number-one seed, despite
losing six starters from last season's
championship roster.
With their intricate mixture of
experienced veterans and one of the
nation's most productive rookie
classes, the Irates were able to bring
home their second consecutive na-
tional championship.
As pool play began that Saturday
morning, the Irates easily dominated
first-time Nationals competitors Will-
iams University, and handed them a
174 loss. The Irates soon discovered
that other victories throughout the
competition would not come as eas-
ily.
ECU faced Stanford University in
their second-round matchup, in a
rematch of the 1994 final game. ECU
eventually outlasted the wind, rain
and Stanford opposition, winning 19-
17.
On Sunday, pool play, along with
the Irates' domination of opponents,
resumed. ECU began the day with a
17-6 victory over Carleton College,
before moving on to a showdown with
Cornell University, a tourney favorite.
When the dust settled, the Irates
came from behind to beat CU 17-13.
ECU then finished pool play with a
17-5 win over the University of Geor-
gia, giving them an unblemished 5-0
record.
By Monday morning. Memorial
Day, just four teams remained to com-
pete for the national title. The semifi-
nals began with ECU pitted against
in-state rivals UNC-Wilmington, na-
tional champions in 1993. The Irates
overcame their toughest opposition
yet to beat Wilmington by a single
point, 18-17.
In the other semifinal matchup,

the top team from the west coast
against the top team from the east.
The final game began with a fired-
up Santa Cruz squad taking an 11-7
halftime lead. The Irates, highly skilled
and conditioned, outplayed their op-
ponents in the second half, and went
on to win 21-18.
Upon conclusion of the tourna-
ment, the Irates again lost senior play-
ers: Bill Romberger, Mike Gerics and
Tom Aloi, vital to the chemistry and
success of the squad.

(SID) - ECU, along with UNC-
Wilmington, has been accepted by the
Big South Conference as associate
members in softball. The two will be-
gin Big South scheduling in the
spring of 1996. and will be eligible
for the Big South tournament in April
1996.
"We are very pleased to add these
two well-respected programs to our
conference said Big South commis-
sioner Buddy Sasser. "We have always
had very good softball in the Big
South, but these additions should
make us even more competitive
ECU has been independent in
softball since the sport's beginning in
the late-1970's. With a rich softball
tradition, ECU finished in the top-five
nationally in 1981 and 1982, has had
two Broderick Award winners and
several NCAA record-holders.
This past season's 42-22 record
marked the third time in the last four
seasons that the Lady Pirates have
won 40 or more games. In addition,
ECU earned their third-straight bid to
the ECAC Division-1 softball champi-
onship.
ECU also received votes in the
HCSAUSA Today Top-25 poll
through mid-April and was ranked
seventh in the South regional poll in
March.
"Being a member of the Big
South provides us with an opportu-
nity to be a part of the NCAA Cham-
pionships through conference affilia-
tion said ECU head coach Sue
Manahan. who has proven successful
over the last 14 years with a 430-239-
3 record. "We look forward to being
a part of a conference in which we
can be competitive
With the addition of ECU and
UNC-W, the Big South will have nine
members competing for the softball
championship next season. Charleion

50 hits this season
were second on the
team, as were her
28 runs batted in
and eight doubles.
Defensively,
Clark led ECU with
a .986 fielding per-

Intramural softball, tennis
and hoops action underway
David Gaskins
Recreational Services
Teams on the intramural sports
activity calendar began play last week
as action kicked off in softball, 5-on-
5 basketball and singles tennis. While
summertime competition tradition-
ally involved small numbers of par-
ticipants and a low-key competitive
approach, this session has seen a
record-shattering number of teams
for both softball and basketball, as
well as an increased enthusiasm in
participation.
Seventeen softball teams are vy-
ing for titles in the Men's Gold, Men's
Purple and Co-Rec divisions.
In Men's Cold action, "U Lose"
got off to a strong start with a 17-14
victory over "Slow & Sloppy as
Eddie Coble led the offensive attack
by scoring four times and hitting a
home run. Chris McLaney provided
the main punch for the Sloppies. also
scoring four times while homering
twice. In the other Gold game of the
week, the "Mooseheads" rode the
power hitting of Greg Sutton and
Mark Honeycutt to a 12-6 win over
Theta Chi.
The Men's Purple league also
revealed early favorites as "Summer's
Eve cruised to victories over the
"Penthouse Players" and the "Cave-
men as Kent Linker and Scott
Kupec led a balanced scoring attack.
"Transit Authority" also emerged
from week one competition with two
wins behind the pitching of Lance
Ward and the all-around play of Corie
Sink.
In Co-Rec. "Mel's Team" has
dominated, fueled by Stephen
Flippin's defense and the offense of
Matt Snyder and Mike Culligan. "The
Economics Society" still looks strong
as well, as they attempt to defend
their title behind ciiampionship team
returnees Lester Zeager. Mary Bishop
and Diane Mahoney.
In Gold basketball, the "O.D.B.s"
emerged from the first week of play
as the lone undefeated team behind
the strong piay of point guard Chris
Pressley and Derrick Harris. How-
ever, the second contest of the week
proved difficult as "Quiet Storm"

Pro ball just a short drive away
Dave Pond
Sports Editor
If you can't make it to a major-
league baseball game, or are just too
ticked-off at the players and owners
to go, head for the minors - they had
nothing to do with last season's strike.
Two teams, the Kinston Indians and
the Carolina Mudcats, play just a short
distance away from the ECU campus.
Both squads are mid-to-lower
level minor league organizations. Pro-
fessional baseball's farm systems are
set up in four levels. Triple-A players
are just one step from the big leagues,
followed by Double-A, A-ball and
Rookie League squads.
Kinston, the A-ball affiliate of the
Cleveland Indians, plays their home
games a short distance away down
Highway 11. The Indians play in the
Carolina League's Southern Division,
along with the Durham Bulls (At-
lanta), Salem Avalanche (Colorado)
and the VVinston-Salem Warthogs
(Cincinnati), present home of Redo'
minor league Player of the Year and
former Pirate outfielder Pat Watkins.
Tickets in Kinston are just S5 for
box seats, $4 for reserved seats and
$3 for general admission seating. To
get to Grainger Stadium, follow Me-
morial Drive south out of Greenville
and make a right on Grainger Avenue
in Kinston. For more information, give
the Indians a call at 1-800-334-5467.
The Mudcats, Double-A affiliate
of the Pittsburgh Pirates, play in
Zebulon's Five County Stadium. To
find the park, take Hwy. 264 out of
Greenville, through Wilson, and get
off at exit 39. Tickets (called "fishing
licenses no less) are S6 for box seats,
$5 for reserved and S4 for general
admission. Students with ID get SI
off the price of any ticket - kind of
like a free upgrade.

ern Division. Carolina battles the
Greenville Braves, Orlando Cubs. Jack-
sonville Suns (Tigers) and the Port
City Roosters (Mariners). Most of the

Donovan added to her staff by
naming Charisse Mapp and Gaynor
O'Donnell as assistant coaches.
Mapp, a former University of North
Carolina player, comes to ECU from
Temple University, where she was re-
sponsible for developing post players
and also dealt with the evaluation of
potential student-athletes.
Mapp is a native of Brooklyn, NY
and received her bachelor's degree
in physical education from UNC in
1989. In 1994. she earned her
master's degree in sports administra-
tion from Temple. Mapp will serve as
the Lady Pirates' recruiting coordi-
nator.
"Charisse is excited to return to
North Carolina Donovan said. "She
will bring to our program extensive
recruiting experience
O'Donnell, a former Lady Pirate
standout, accepted the position as
the restricted-earnings coach.
O'Donnell lettered at ECU from
1989-93 and currently holds the
school record for assists. In 1992-93
she led the nation in assists as a se-
nior, averaging 10.7 a game.
O'Donnell also holds the ECU record
for assists in a season with 300, and
assists in a game with 20 against
UNC-Asheville in 1992.
. O'Donnell also showed she could
score, as she finished her career at
ECU as the 14th leading scorer in
Lady Pirate basketball history with
1,015 points.
"It's great to have Gaynor rejoin
the Lady Pirate program Donovan
said. "Her national and international
exposure will make her a great asset
to the Lady Pirate staff and her suc-
cess on and off the court will make
her a great ambassador to the uni-
versity
On the court. Donovan will wel-
come the signing of 5-foot-9 guard
Laurie Ashenfelder to the Lady Pi-
rates. Ashenfelder comes from
Lackawanna Junior College in
Scranton, Pa. where she played the
last two seasons and was a junior col-
lege standout.
Ashenfelder averaged 17.6 points
and 8.0 rebounds for Lackawanna last
season as she helped lead them to the
Region XIX conference title and a sev-
enth-place finish in the national Jun-
ior College tournament. She was a
member of the Region XIX All-Tour-
nament team and was chosen for the
National All-Tournament team.
"Laurie is an experienced perim-
eter player who has competed very'
successfully on the junior college
level Donovan said. 'We will look
for her to have an impact immediately
with our program
Ashenfelder joins Beth Jaynes.
who committed to ECU in April, in
the 1995 class of Lady Pirate signees.
Greenville Braves are players who
moved up from A-league Durham the
season before. For more information,
call (9191-269-CATS.
Both teams offer many different
promotional events throughout the
season, food and souvenir stands
(called "tackle boxes" at Mudcat
games) and a relaxed atmosphere to
watch some of the future stars of
major league baseball.

"Firebirds who escaped with a dra-
matic 73-72 double-overtime win over
the "TPKs behind the ballhandling
of Greg Oakley and the leadership of
captain Chris Brantley.
The "TPKs" led by the outside
shooting of Brad Thompson and the
inside play of Brian Manning, failed
to capitalize on several opportunities

teams were limited to just four play-
ers each.
