Minority scholarships face reevaluation

(AP) - When the controversial
Tobacco Control Summer Institute
opened for business, the argument
over whether it should be held at a
state-supported school seemed miles
The institute began Monday at
the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill with many of the 107
participants seemingly unaware that
state legislators had questioned the

for Disease Control and Prevention.
It was criticized by North Carolina
House Majority Leader and tobacco
farm owner Leo Daughtry, who said
he might block requests for faculty
raises and new building funds.
(AP) - A record number of pris-
oners are living on North Carolina's
death row. and there's no more room.
There are 122 prisoners cur-
rently on the state's death row, the
highest number since the state rein-
stated the death penalty in the 1970s.
Last month, Central Prison warden
James French started putting con-
demned prisoners in an area formerly'
reserved for other high-security pris-

(AP) - It was midday on the
Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
last week when 25-year-old Eric
Atkinson chose to end his life.
He did so abruptly, abandoning
his vehicle and flinging himself over
the waist-high rail of the fabled rust-
colored span.
Like the 999 known victims
before him, Atkinson's body fell
roughly 220 feet, hitting the water
at about 80 mph. The impact likely
killed him.
Authorities say they don't
know what led him to the bridge,
or whether he was aware that his
jump would be recorded as a mor-

Staff Writer
Graduate and undergraduate stu-
dents in ECU's department of anthro-
pology are getting school credit and
hands-on experience on an exciting
excavation site in Snow Hill, North
The archaeology field school is
on the site of Fort Neoheroka, a for-
tress built by the Tuscarora Indians
to protect against colonists and rival
Indian tribes, and is also the site of
the final battle of the Tuscarora War
of 1711-1713.
According to Dr. John Byrd, vis-
iting professor of archaeology at ECU
and assistant director for the
Neoheroka project the site is uniquely
well preserved and has yielded invalu-
able materials.
"One of the most significant
things from an anthropology perspec-
tive is that these people crammed into
a fort in a hurry and brought with
them everything they could carry
Byrd said. "And a result of that is a
great variety of material things from
their everyday life has been concen-
trated in one little place

dents serve as crew chiefs for the
teams of undergraduates on the site.
For undergraduate students, our goal
is to teach them lo dig right without

Patrice Sune, a recent graduate
of the undergraduate anthropology
program, said in a telephone interview
Monday that although the course was
often exhausting, she felt very fortu-
nate to have had the experience.

These artifacts, recovered from the Neoheroka excavation site, were used for trading.
Anthropology students spent their summer digging remains from the Tuscaroran Indians.
"You had to be on campus by
6:30 in the morning, and sometimes
you didn't get back on campus till af-
ter 5:30, so they were long, tiring days,
but I definitely feel very fortunate to
have gone to field school with Dr.
Phelps Sune said. "He knows a lot
about archaeology. He's been in the
field for over 40 years
Dr. Phelps, professor of archae-
ology and director of the Neoheroka
project, was unable to be reached for
an interview due to the fact that he
has been away from campus doing
field research on other sites.
According to Sune, she was able
to do a little bit of everything on the
site, rather than just being relegated
to one task.
When asked what she planned to
do with her degree, Sune stated that
she was unsure.
"People keep asking me that, but
the truth is I just haven't decided
she said. "With an archaeology de-
gree you could do simple contract-
ing work, or you could work for some-
place like the Department of Trans-
portation. Before they can build a
road they have to make sure that there
is nothing that needs to be excavated.
In order to go further in this field,
though, 1 would have to go back and
get my master's or probably even my
Charles Heath, a member of the
newly instated graduate program,
stated in an interview Tuesday that
he intends to eventually pursue a doc-
torate at another university, as East
Carolina does not offer a doctoral
degree in anthropology.

invaluable experience for me, because

Fort Neoheroka is located on
farmland belonging to George
Mewborn Jr. and his family in Snow
Hill. Each year, the Mewboms leave
an area of their farmland available for
excavation by the ECU archaeology
department, while they farm the re-
mainder of the land. According to a
press release from the ECU News
Bureau, the artifacts recovered from
the Neoheroka site will be named for
the Mewborn family in honor of their
contribution anc cooperation in the
"Neoheroka one of the most sig-
nificant sites in the country right

"We are very fortunate to have
the kind of access we have to it And
we only have that access through the
generosity of the Mewborn family

Only three unrelated people per

means that anyone living four or
more to an apartment, house or du-

The city of Greenville has inspectors
who are empowered to check and

said that although not the rule, in-
spectors would give the fourth ten-

Jim Kaufmann, chief inspector
for Greenville, said if he gets a com-
plaint, one of the eight inspectors in
his office is sent to investigate. Most
complaints come from neighbors
concerned about parking and the
number of cars in a driveway. If there
is a violation, the inspector notifies
the property owner and the tenant
The inspector then gives the owner
30 days to comply with the ordi-

designed to be fair to the renter, the

is not cleaned up with 24 hours.
If grass remains uncut above 12

city can fine the property owner $50

approximately $30 or more. On top
of this fee, a $45-55 administrative fee

across the campus, nearly 90 percent
of them were participants in this pro-

a devastating effect on the leadership
in the African American community
here at East Carolina University
Haynes said that he received a
document of the editor's note
(romThe College Student and the
Courts, June 1995 issue, which stated
that the "ruling" the Supreme Court
made only means that the race-based
scholarships at the University of Mary-
land were unlawful - not the ones at
other universities.
"That is sort of the troubling part
of the ruling we are seeing here
Haynes said. "It's not necessarily the
impact that the ruling, persay, will
have on the numbers. In other words,
minority scholarships represent a
very, very small piece of the financial
aid pie. In fact depending on who you
talk to, it's one percent to three per-
cent of the total financial aid that is
given out each year.
"But, what it does is change
people's mentality, or their mindset.
They say, 'Ah, Maryland says you can't
give race-based scholarships, so we'll
start cutting back on the scholarships
that we offer. We won't push as hard
to recruit or try to recruit minorities,
African Americans students and other
minorities to our campus. The Su-

of the minority presence grants are
either $900 or $1,500 a year. The
most that we offer in any other stu-
dent financial aid grant is $800 a
year. So any of those students would
lose money

"Some of the $1,500 Minority

forced into a position of increasing
their loan debt

reduce student loan debt as well as
to make up for past discriminating

university actively continued to investigate the possible SGA in-
volvement with The Elbo, a downtown club that sent a promotional
newsletter and free passes to orientation students?
The letter states that The Elbo has been "one of ECU's stu-
dents favorite gathering spots for 25 years" and encourages the
students to use the free passes and visit the establishment during
orientation. Surely, this was not on the university's planned list of
orientation activities.
This is exactly the type of association, ECU students and drink-
ingpartying, that the university has invested time and money to
dispel. Surely, they are not just going to let this go.
As reported in recent TEC issues, official East Carolina Univer-
sity labels, with the names and addresses of orientation students,
were only available to university organizations and were requested
by three: the Student Leadership Development which had not picked
up its label at the time of the incident, Army ROTC, which were
mailed out under supervision and then there were those ordered
by SGA. The use of these labels by the Elbo implied that the users
were connected with and approved by the university.
After some parents complained about the letters, the investiga-
tion began and SGA notified ECU Police that someone had broken
into their office. During the investigation, Dean of Students Ronald
Speier told TEC he had concluded that The Elbo had used photo-
copies of the labels in the possession of the SGA office.
However, after following a few leads, little else has been done
to find out how the labels got from the SGA office into the hands of
The Elbo's manager. Who is responsible?
In the past, investigations into other student organizations
like the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and its hazing incident did not
stop until the responsible persons were found.
How is this different? Isn't this also a mar against the university's
image? Or can a person be exempt from taking responsibility for a
wrong-doing if he or she is an SGA official? If the university, or
SGA is not to blame in this matter then why stop the investiga-
tion? Let's fmd the culprit and stop this from occurring in the
future. (Similar labels were used last year by the Elbo).
This incident was a serious matter and should not be swept
under the proverbial rug Most orientation students are under the
legal drinking age. With the "official" university label on the letters
from The Elbo, it could have been interpreted that the university
sanctioned underage drinking - even promoted it
Not quite an image builder.
Tale of a hungry surgeon
I've said before that I keep a
watchful eye on the news, trying to
find the pulse of current events, to
find out what direction we're all mov-
ing in. Occasionally, something
comes along that appalls me to the
extent of rattling my faith in the
Human Condition.
Recently, I heard about Dr.
Raymond Sattler, the Wilmington
neurosurgeon who, at the pinnacle
of his already sketchy operating ca-
reer, walked out of the OR in the
middle of surgery to go to lunch, leav-
ing his patient's brain exposed for 25
minutes. He was quoted as saying he
was going out for a snack, and left
no doctor in his place when he left.
The patient 55-year-old Mary Jo
Ridenour, was on the operating table
with two brain aneurysms, one of
which Sattler clipped before popping
out Ridenour had a stroke while she
was on the table and is now sport-
ing a case of permanent brain dam-
age and repeatedly talks to her dead
relatives in the present tense.
Imagine - nearly a half-hour
stretched out in surgery with your
brain sitting right out in plain view,
unnecessarily, all because this
schmuck neurologist got the hanker-
ing for a Payday 4
As the rest of the story unfolded,
though, I suppose I wasn't surprised
at his irresponsibility. Sattler had a
history of showing up late for sur-
gery at Cape Fear Memorial, while
the patients waited under anesthe-
sia for him to show up.
And on top of everything else,
this isn't the first time he's had his
medical privileges yanked out from
under him. Two years and nine mal-

from the operating rooms of the two
hospitals in Wilmington and lost his
malpractice insurance. Six weeks
later, he had a new insurance com-
pany and had reopened his practice.
What next? I'll tell you what next
- he's being afforded the chance to
regain his license again Granted,
should he choose to accept the medi-
cal board's terms, he'll be under some
pretty tight restrictions, but he will
still be reissued his license to wield
a scalpel.
Somehow, I have the feeling that
in a less tolerant world, Doctor Duck-
Out would be stripped of his skin as
well as his license and be banished
to the dark side of the moon to wail
his fate like some eternally damned
soul from Dante's Inferno. I also have
a feeling that Sattler knows this as
well. Rather than press his already
paper-thin luck, he's declined to give
surgery another shake and is selling
his house.
The state Medical Board might
be forgiving, but the people of
Wilmington and Pender County,
Ridenour's residence, are probably
not. Sattler will be lucky to make it
out of town and escape stoning and
being thrown to the alligators at the
N.C. State Zoo.

posed to follow, the Hippocratic
Oath states, "First, do no harm I

No, Sattler strikes me as one of

pursuing a medical career because
he was able to get all the parts out
of the Mow-faced patient on the
Milton-Bradley Operation board
without touching the sides. Same

NRA: teaching our reps how to
use money to get what it wants
Rep. Billy Creech's colleagues
pressed him for answers about a bill
he recently introduced in the N.C.
General Assembly. The Johnston
County Republican had sponsored
legislation to prohibit local govern-
ments from passing gun laws in their
own communities. Some legislators
wanted to know if his bill would al-
low people to brandish weapons at
town hall meetings or open gun
shops in quiet neighborhoods.
Creech couldn't answer the
questions. He didn't author the leg-
islation with his name on it. Lobby-
ists from the National Rifle Associa-
tion wrote it instead. He only intro-
duced legislation handed to him by
the NRA. "It shows you how cocky
the NRA is - pushing a bill the spon-
sor can't even explain said Rep.
Mickey Michaux. Even Creech admit-
ted gun lobbyists "had drafted it to
their satisfaction
This year the National Rifle As-
sociation is busy writing bills for leg-
islators like Creech. They are also
busy handing out checks. It comes
as no surprise the NRA gave Billy
Creech a $500 check to help him
get reelected. He is just one of many
representatives getting money from
the gun lobby. They gave $22,625
to those expected to vote on gun
legislation this year.
That might explain why several
bills written by NRA lobbyists have
passed the State House. One such
bill promises to legalize concealed
weapons. On the surface it sounds
innocuous for people to get permits
to hide their weapons. However, a
deeper look at the bill reveals legis-
lation sloppily written by gun lob-

It comes as no

gave Billy Creech
a $500 check to
help him get
linians over 21 years of age to apply
for a concealed weapons permit. It
prohibits "habitual" felons from ob-
taining a concealed weapons license.
The bill also sets guidelines for
former mental patients to obtain a

tigation would have to grant a per-

North Carolina law defines a
"habitual" felon as someone con-
victed of three or more felonies af-
ter reaching eighteen years of age.
Those with fewer than three felonies
will be eligible for a concealed weap-
ons permit. The local crack dealer
with a string of misdemeanors, a
long arrest record and only two
felony convictions, will be able to
carry concealed weapons under this
bill. This shows how out of touch
the NRA has become.
The law will also require former
mental patients committed to psy-
chiatric hospitals to have a note
from their doctor to carry a con-
cealed weapon. It makes me feel
safer to know John Henkley would
have to have a note from his doctor
before he can hide a .22 caliber un-
der his coat. It's convenient that
mental patients won't have to go
outside and get their guns before
they start shooting.
In the old West, people used to
have to check their guns at the door
in some establishments. The bill

convenience. Property owners will
not be able to prohibit concealed
weapons in their establishments. For

House despite Michaux's logic.

police chiefs from across North

about the mass of pro-gun legisla-

They argued the General Assembly
should consider what professional

Instead of tapping into the sci-fi
potential of Dredd, Director Danny

project into just another Sylvester

sure can't act it.

same thing much better 12 years ago.
But what about the plot, you ask?
Unfortunately, nothing new is offered.
The story feels like a series of other

Just how many people can you
fit on the bandwagon before the axle
In the year 2010, will people be
saying that the '90s were the decade
of the bar chord in music history? I
think so. What I'm getting to is the
Circle Jerks' new CD. It seems that
this integral punk band of the '80s
has taken themselves out of mothballs
to see if they can make a little money
in the wake of the Green Day punk
The Circle Jerks new release, 15
years after their first album Group
Sex, is entitled Oddities, Abnormali-
ties, and Curiosities. Not to date
myself, but I remember when they
were one of the leading bands of the
American punk scene. They were one
of the charter members and standard
bearers of original L.A. hard-core
punk, contemporaries of Black Flag
and TSOL, Fear and The Minutemen.
You would think that reaching
your mid-30s would cause one to mel-
low and lose the outright anger and
rage that drove one to be a part of
such a movement. Indeed it has, and
the Circle Jerks aren't what they used
to be.
The band still retains their
deadlocked front man Keith Morris
and Greg Hetson on guitars. There are
two new faces on drums and bass,
Keith Clark and Zander Schloss. All
the members admit that they are try-
ing to evolve away from the original
formula of punk that took them so
far in the first place.
"It's a little more complicated
guitarfst Greg Hetson agrees, "but it's
still basically punk rock We were
just being pissed off in 1980 and now
we're more introspective, emotional
and personal, rather than simply re-
actionary I thought punk was sup-
posed to be reactionary and uncom-
plicated musically. When you change
those factors does it still remain punk?
I doubt it
The disc contains 12 tracks that
are extremely short; only a few of the
songs are longer than three minutes.
In comparison to their older stuff, the
songs are much more melodic and
recognizably slower than the break-
neck pace they used to carry. The
subject of the songs has changed as
well. Keith's lyrics used to be solely
concerned with the plastic and oppres-
sive aspects of our society. He would
scream and rant about life in America
and you just knew that he meant it
I'm just not so sure about the sincer-
ity anymore.
Maybe I should stop being so
sour and let the boys play what they
will. So what if they want to get in
with the new wave of punk? If they
want to adapt themselves to the punk
of the '90s and run the Top 40 race
with Green Day and The Offspring
then I should be happy about it I need
to remind myself that the days of rage,
Sid and Nancy, Redd Kross, The
Germs and The Exploited are over.
This is a new game with new rules.
But is the new game as much fun?

It's a damn shame about the
They were one of the few truly
original bands on an alternative scene
flooded with Cure and REM wannabes
in the '80s. Their mix of punk and Irish
folk music made them one of the most
exciting bands of the period.
Then their frontman, Shane
MacGowan. developed a severe alcohol
problem (basically, he was in the pisser
for a large portion of his waking hours).
His influence on the band decreased
with each album. Eventually, the other
Pogues kicked him out of the band,
and went on to record the bland and
lifeless Waiting for Herb. It seemed the
Pogues legend was at an end.
But now, Shane MacGowan is
back. After a string of minor solo
projects over the last couple of years,
MacGowan has joined with a new band,
the Popes, and recorded a new album,
The Snake.
It's a return to form for
MacGowan. All of his favorite topics
are here, from alcohol to Catholicism
to Irish politics. Musically, the old
Pogues staples are back as well, the
Irish folk influence kicking in with the
first track.

number. In this fast-paced tune,
MacGowan spit-slurs lyrics about his

nocturnal creature. Procrastina-

(and 'late nights') combined with
cable television has given rise to
the most detested of TV commer-
cials, the bastard son of cable
programming: psychic phone
But it hasn't always been
that way.
I'm in my mid-twenties and
grew up listening to different
kinds of music and watching
prime time TV. My earliest child-
hood memories with regard to
music are obviously one of what-
ever my parents were listening.
As a toddler, my mother fondly
recalls a jubilant, dwarf-sized
little runt dancing and singing
around the house, a youngster
without a care in the world.
The music I remember most
fondly were Motown songs my
mother played while I rode shot-
gun in her red VW bug. Dionne
Warwick, Gladys Knight and the
Pipps, Ray Charles, and of
course, the immortal Tempta-
tions. These were the musicians
of the late '60s early '70s that
gave my early childhood "sun-
shine on a cloudy day
Several years later, in jun-
ior high and high school I was
hooked on fast-pace action
shows like Miami Vice. Seeing
Don Johnson and Philip Michael
Thomas chase drug dealers and
murderers all over southern
Florida gave my Friday nights
some meaning somehow.
I reluctantly admit that I
thought this dynamic duo had
it all. They sped around the city
in $100,000 sports cars darting
in and out of heavy traffic and
straight through red lights, chas-
ing and subsequently capturing
Miami's most ruthless felons.
Something that I've yet to fig-
ure out is how they could afford
tailor-made italian silk suits,
scoot across the Miami water-
ways in high-dollar speedboats
and live on million dollar yachts.
Oh well, some mysteries are
meant to remain unsolved.
What do old Motown artists
and Miami Vice have in com-
mon? Apparently two celebrities
have found their financial wind-
falls in 1-900 phone lines. Or,
maybe their psychics told them
that Psychic Phone Lines were
the career choice for past-their-
prime celebrities like Dionne
and Philip.
Last week, while flipping
through the channels at about
1:30 a.m Dionne Warwick was
hosting her 30-minute
infomercial, "The Psychic
Friends Network As I reached
for a clean razor blade with
which to cut my wrists, I decided
instead to just change the chan-
nel. Surely a $45 per month
cable bill serves some purpose.
Surely there is programming of
some substance, somewhere.
To my utter dismay, the
channel I stopped on was show-
ing "The Philip Michael Thomas
Psychic 900 Line
That was what I was wait-
ing for. Somebody finally made
me realize something. I really am
tired of all those phony so-called
psychic lines, so I sure am glad
that for a measly $3.99 a minute
Philip Michael Thomas will put
me in touch with a real psychic,
one that's worth my hard earned
money. He cares about my per-
sonal relationships, career, and
my money. I'm so glad Dionne
Warwick and Philip Michael
Thomas will selflessly provide
me with a real psychic reading
from a real live psychic.

new talent to become the
great new'comic artists of the future. (Well we
all start somewhere) So if you have original
material and are ready to start meeting deadlines
this fall, then we are looking for you. All comics
should be inked panels in a 8"x 13" format (two

Or asking folks in the TV industry
if the latest assault on Hollywood val-
ues, courtesy of presidential contender
Bob Dole, will influence the fall season.
The networks flatly refuse com-

Some producers are willing to re-
spond. In television's annual ritual of
reinventing itself. Dole's complaints
about pop culture's sex-and-violence fixa-
tion will go unheeded, they say.
But is TV becoming more open to
rightist influence?
"The networks haven't issued a
post-Dole call for producers to avoid the
bawdy or bloody said Dick Wolf, pro-
ducer of NBC s Law & Order and Fox s
Afeie York Undercover.
What viewers will get next year,
based on preview tapes that have started
to emerge, is more of what they favored
in the ratings this year - saucy com-
edies like Friends and socially aware
dramas such as Law & Order. What
viewers don't like gets dumped in this
advertiser-driven medium.
We are not a ministry and should
not be presumed to be and should not
be encouraged by government to func-

cated than it seems. While it's appar-
ently about a return to old-fashioned
values, the closing lines (along with
MacGowan's delivery) hints that those
values aren't enough to give him peace.
Not every song has such artistic
notions. The Irish standard Nancy
Whiskey for instance is just a drink-
ing song.
But even drinking songs have
their artistic moments. "Nancy Whis-
key" casts alcohol as a seductive
woman who woos you, ruins you and
leaves when the money runs out
This theme of love betrayed runs
deep through The Snake. Whether it's
love of drink, church, country or
people, that love comes to a bad end
in one way or another, again and again.
In "The Song With No Name
MacGowan betrays that love himself.
It's the story of a man who realizes
too late that he had a love so pure and
good that he can never love again.
Unfortunately, the stupid bastard hurt
the one he loved so much that she left
him. And now, he would be "lashed and
crucified for a single kiss from her
Love of country doesn't leave any-
body in much better shape. The title
track, "The Snake With Eyes of Gar-
net" is slightly hopeful, but still paints
a pretty bleak picture for patriots.
The snake of the title is a ring, a
symbol of hope and strength for any
who would stand up to oppression. Of
course, the fact that the ring came off
the finger of an executed freedom

song holds out
About the only ray on hope on
The Snake is, ironically, a tune called
"Haunted This one's a song of new
love featuring Sinead O'Connor in a
duet with MacGowan. In the chorus,
they sing "I want to be haunted by the
ghost Of your precious love So the
only ghosts here are benevolent ones,
the memories of someone you love.
Beyond all this mushy stuff,
MacGowan does offer one other song
that's not drowning in despair.
"Donegal Express" is the story of a
lecherous priest who has sleazy sexual
liaisons with women all across Ireland.
It's an old-fashioned bawdy bar song
that's so boldly amoral I have to like it
The lyrics are filthy, and I'll spare you
most of them here.
My favorite part of the song, how-
ever, goes like this: "Back in sweet Vir-
ginia In the toilet with Lavinia I
nearly fucked her brains out And tore
her party dress Why is that so im-
pressive? MacGowan actually found a
name that rhymes with Virginia!
It's a hell of a way to end a hell of

emerges from the combination.
Sadly, this is not what happens here.
Dredd is dreadful because the film-
makers did not try to breathe new
life into a tired idea.
Such is not the case with the
surprisingly good Species. Director
Roger Donaldson and writer Dennis
Feldman borrow from other films
only to give birth to a genre film that
works on many levels.
In this sci-fihorror picture. Ben
Kingsley heads a secret government
organization that creates new life by
combining human genes with alien
genes received from some unknown
source in outer space. After six
months, a 12-year-old little girl grows
from this combination.
Eventually, the government de-
cides they need to terminate the
project and the little girl along with
it. But before Kingsley can carry out
his orders, the girl escapes, runs to
L.A. and quickly matures into a 20-
year-old woman with incredible alien
powers. To make matters worse, Sil,
our alien friend, also has a need to
mate and reproduce.
To help hunt Sil down, Kingsley
hires government "trouble-shooter"
Michael Madsen, empath Forest
Whitaker, culture expert Alfred
Molina and biologist Marg
Helgenberger. With this group in
place, an exciting and engaging cat-
and-mouse chase is set and carried
out with expert talent.
The acting all around is excep-
tional, including newcomer Natasha
Henstridge as the beautiful and men-
acing Sil. But what makes Species a
gem in this glut of summer movies is
i s
the fact that in lesser hands this film
would just be bad. As opposed to
Judge Dredd, there is a sense that
the filmmakers were determined to
make a good movie.
Donaldson doesn't waste time
with too much exposition. In the first
five minutes we witness Sil's escape
from the government lab and imme-
diately the chase is on. Still, the film
doesn't rush things. Characters are
each given a face and are nicely de-
Sil isn't just an evil alien out to
kill every human. While she does
commit some horrible acts, she is a
sympathetic character who is thrown
into her own nightmare.
Although the Alien influence is
evident, Species is its own unique
creature in its ability to turn L.As
singles' club scene into a hunting
ground. The sexuality of the film
wprks nicely and isn't exploitative.
Tne fact that Sil wants to mate makes
the intensity of the film even more
The alien itself is a marvel. De-
signed by H.R. Giger, Sil represents
a physical, sexual nightmare as ten-
tacles shoot from her breasts and
scaly blades protrude from her back.
Even though Species dues slip
into typical Hollywood antics at
points, overall it succeeds in offer-
ing a fun and intense ride. Species
is a reminder that a little talent can
carry you a long way. Judge Dredd
is a reminder that a bigger budget
doesn't mean a better movie. On a
scale of one to 10, Judge Dreda
rates a four and Species rates an

Oscar eventually invites Felix

to kill himself and instead invests
energy into cleaning Oscar's apart-

gives depth to every character.
Martin Rader and Elizabeth Ann
Townsend do an especially good
job with their characters. Rader
gives Roy the prope. amount of
composure to keep things calm
while still allowing him to have a
fit about the heat. Townsend gives
Cecily a boisterous, bouncy dispo-
sition that made the audience
chuckle with her every line.
The two leads were equally
magnificent. Morris made Felix lik-
able while still playing up his neu-
rotic traits. Morris used great in-
flection for Felix's lines that cre-
ated laughter just from the sound
of his voice. McNuIty gave Oscar a
depth not necessarily written in

expression made the audience re-
alize cn.t Oscar was not as confi-
dent as he would have people be-

The East Carolinian
Stadium expansion
approved for 1997
Board of Trustees
approves major
Brian Paiz
Assistant Sports Editor
Soon the roars of 60,000 fans
will be heard on Saturday afternoons
in Greenville.
' Last week, the ECU Board of
Trustees approved a newly-designed
master plan that will increase Dowdy-
'Ficklen Stadium's seating capacity to
46,000 seats by the start of the 1997
football season and ultimately to
60,000 seats.
The new master plan comes af-
� tcr the Board of Trustees and ECU
administration discussed plans with
the architects to lower the cost of
construction. The architects had pro-
vided an estimate of over 26 million
�dollars, which included the building
�of a new press box, a 1,500-seat club
�seating area and a 10,000 seat up-
Jper deck. Both the Board of Trust-
ees and administration figured they
"would not get any state assistance,
5sp an alternative plan was put into
"Our top priority was to raise the
seating capacity at Dowdy-Ficklen
?Stadium said Pirate Club Executive
Director Dennis A. Young. "Our origi-
Jnal plan was to have the press box
'and club seating be included in the
Jfirst phase, but the seating capacity
� seemed to better fit ECU's athletic
� department at this time
Young said that so far that the
� Shared Visions campaign has raised
j $8,785,000 of a $9 million dollar goal
Jthat was established for Dowdy-
I Ficklen Stadium.
"The timing was a major factor
Jin the design of a new plan he said.
"Getting appropriate funds from the
General Assembly was not appropri-
ate at this time said Young.
"We have until December, so
now we are going to try to raise $10
million which will include the con-
struction of a new Pirate Club build-
ing said Young.
The new master plan is sec-
tioned into four different phases.
Phase one, which will bring the ca-
pacity to 46,000 seats, includes the
construction of an 8,000-seat upper
deck on the north side of the sta-
dium, as well as permanent seat
bleachers in the east end zone. The
total cost of phase one is $11.5 mil-
lion dollars.
"The new seating will help us in
many ways said Young. "We will
have a legitimate NCAA Division l-A
football stadium, and it will also help
ECU with conference affiliation
Phase two of the plan includes
construction of club seating beneath
the north side of the upper deck, and
the temporary relocation of the press
box. Construction of a new press box
and the provision for adding 10,000
new seats to the south side are in-
cluded in phase three of the master
The final phase has the adding
of 3,000 to 4,000 seats in the east
end zone, which would bring the to-
tal capacity of Dowdy-Ficklen sta-
dium to 60,000. Members of ECU's
Board of Trustees are excited about
the expansion.
"The more seats you have, the
larger the teams you will draw said
trustee Ron Dowdy. "The larger sta-
dium will definitely help ECU in re-
cruiting, and the increased seating
capacity will help draw larger schools
to Greenville
Dowdy, who pledged $1 million
to the stadium expansion last year,
feels that the ECU athletic depart-
ment can only get stronger.

lone football
awards candidate

Pirate running back Jerris McPhail is the only ECU player
nominated for a postseason football award this season.
Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
Ask ECU football fans to name a
postseason award candidate on this
year's roster and they might come up
with defensive star Mark Libiano or
quarterback Marcus Crandell.
Neither player is the answer.
Senior running back Jerris McPhail
became the only Pirate nominated for
a postseason award after being named
as one of 35 candidates for the Doak
Walker award, honoring the nation's
top running back. This may be even
more surprising to fans who recall that
McPhail played last year as a backup
to record-setting tailback Junior
McPhail never reached first-string
status last season, but that isn't to say
he didn't contribute. The Clinton na-
tive rushed for 326 yards on just 73
carries while catching 11 passes for
201 yards. His 18.3-yard reception
average was tops on the team, an in-
cluded a team-best 67-yard catch ver-
sus Central Florida.
In addition to all of these offen-
sive heroics, McPhail was special-
teams coordinator Doug Martin's top
kickoff-coverage performer, and was
honored at the team banquet for his
done a great job so far said Dowdy,
referring to the proposed football
dates with the University of North
Carolina and N.C. State. "The reason
for my commitment to ECU is because
we are finally graduating athletes, and
that is very important to me

Former Pirates excel

Staff Writer
Two former Pirate football play-
ers are making their mark this sum-
mer in the profes-
sional ranks.
Junior Smith,
ECU's all-time
leading rusher is
starting at tailback
for the Canadian
Football League's
Shreveport Pi-
rates, while An-
thony Brenner, a
former ECU
placekicker, is
kicking for the
Arena Football's
Charlotte Rage.
Smith, who
led ECU in scoring (10 TDs) and all-
purpose yards (1,510) last season, was
passed on by NFL clubs during this
spring's draft and free agent signings.
This failure to sign Smith was prima-
rily due to the running back's lack of
size (5-foot-7, 180 pounds), but by
choosing not to sign him, the NFL
clubs allowed Shreveport to acquire
a talented open field performer that
ordinarily would be out of their reach.
"We are very impressed with his
physical ability Shreveport offensive
coordinator Joe Barnes said. "He has
blocked much better than we expected
him to. and he has wry good hands.
When he gets the ball in the open
field, he is tough to handle.
"He doesn't have breakaway
speed, but he is real quick and has
great balance. He is real smart and a
delight to coach
Smith leads the CFL Pirates in
rushing with nine carries for 27 yards.
Swinging out of the backfield, Smith
also caught 5 passes for 43 yards.
Shreveport played against the
league-leading Calgary Stampeders
and star QB Doug Flutie Saturday on
ESPN2. The Pirates lost, as Calgary
continually put a strong pass-rush on
Shreveport QB Billy Joe Tolliver, also
a former NFL quarterback. This rush
forced Smith to pass block for most
of the game.
"Last game
we had to keep
him in the
Barnes said.
"Our pass protec-
tion is not very
solid at this
point, and we
needed him to
stay in and block.
In the future, we
plan to run him
more on sweeps
and get him more
involved in the
passing game.
"Because of
his size, he may have been overlooked
by the NFL - but he is a player for
this league. He has a lot of talent

The second session of intramu-
ral, sports activities opened with a
light schedule of action last week due
to the July 4th holiday, but most of
the teams played at least one contest.
In 3-on-3 basketball, a number
close games appeared to indicate that
the league is well-balanced with a
number of competitive teams. The
"Three Amigos led by the inside
work qf Jim McGee and the heady
passing of Brian Haislip, slipped by
the "Blue Chips" 44-37, despite a fine
shooting game by Steve Crabtree.
However, the "Blue
Chips" were affected by
the loss of George
Hollen, who was in-
"Ward's Team" won
by forfeit, while "Flipped,

defeated "Tixe" 43-31 in

"Flipped" bunch, while
Danie Lee and Wayne

In Softball, as has
been the pattern for most
of the summer seasons,
rain was the big winner,
once again wiping out
the men's games for the
entire week. In Co-Rec,
"Mel's Team" won by for-
feit over "Kegel's who
almost have enough to
play, and are still ex-
pected to be a team to
be reckoned with before
the season ends.
In the other game,
the "Economics
Society"rode the offen-
sive punch of Fred
Baldwin and Dana
Theiden, who scored
three runs apiece, to
outlast "Ward's Team" 13-7. Steve
Gowan and Brenda Swain lead the
offense for "Ward's scoring two
times each.

Williams Arena at Minges Coli-

North Carolina Senior Games.
The event, taking place from
Sept. 26 until Oct. 1 in the Raleigh
area, will close with the final basket-
ball competitions in Greenville -on
Oct. 27-28. The State Finals Golf

Greensboro's Bryan Park on Oct. 16-
"The State Finals includes about
2,000 participants said Project Man-
ager Lynn Allender. "We are a bit
unique in that we have a statewide
network and preliminary games.
Most states only have one or the
other, but we have state finals as a
culmination of the year-round pro-
State Finals is the culmination
of 49 local Senior Games programs

tition across the state. The winners
from each sport per age category are
eligible to attend the state finals.

ticipated in one of the local 49 games
and finished first, second or third in

At the State Finals, there will
also be a Fun Walk of one mile for

The North Carolina Senior

Sometimes overlooked among
the festivities are the 700-plus vol-

Panthers relax
season ticket plans
(AP) - As the Carolina Panthers
moved closer to their inaugural sea-
son, it became obvious that the idea
of making 10 long rides to see the
new team wasn't sitting well with all
So the Panthers, faced with the
prospect of playing their 1995 home
games in front of thousands of empty
seats, unveiled a relaxed season ticket
purchasing plan Monday. Instead of
limiting fans to buying season pack-
ages that contain tickets for all 10
games at Clemson's Memorial Sta-
dium, the Panthers are offering two-
and three-game plans.
"It's a response to what we've
been hearing from fans Mark
Richardson. Carolina's director of
business operations, said Monday at
Wofford College, where the Panthers
open training camp later this week.
"What they said was that they'd like
the option to see just a few games
So far. the Panthers have sold
45,000 of the 10-game ticket packages
for Clemson.

accomplishment, at least from a

and Atlanta - and a pair of two-game

"I can play as well or better than
any of them, it is just a matter of go-
ing out every game and proving it.
If I get outside on the corner, I don't
feel like anyone is going to catch me.
Plus, I feel like I am a more versatile
back, because I can run the ball and

McPhail led ECU in receiving in
1993 with 34 catches for a 20-yard
average playing strictly as a receiver.
He moved back to tailback last sea-
son, primarily to prepare for the 1995
ECU offensive coordinator and
running backs coach Todd Berry
knows a good runner when he sees
one, having coached NFL stars
Thurman Thomas and Barry Sand-
ers at Oklahoma State University.
"Jerris had a really good spring
Berry said. "He's over 200 pounds,
has been clocked at 4.39 in the 40-
yard dash and is the kind of player
who likes to dish it out. Not a lot of
players on our team like to tackle the
guy. I expect him to have real simi-
lar numbers as Junior
Smith accounted for 1,510 all-
purpose yards last year, and reached
the end zone 10 times. Fans and op-
posing defenses should expect to see
McPhail come out of relative obscu-
rity and equal, or better, those num-
All of his success isn't surpris-
ing to McPhail, who always felt like
he belonged as a starter on a Divi-
sion I-A football team. After a sea-
son at both Wake Forest University
and Mount Olive College, McPhail
came to ECU and redshirted during
the 1992 season.
McPhail played football at
Clinton High School gaining All-
State honors after rushing for 1,500
yards and 30 touchdowns as a senior.
The Dark Horses won the state 2A
championship that year with an un-
defeated record.
Once a Dark Horse always a
Dark Horse, as McPhail is indeed a
longshot for the 1995 Doak Walker
Award. The winner will be honored
after the season and given a $10,000
scholarship in his name to his
university's general scholarship fund.
If McPhail can maximize his po-
tential, the ECU running game won't
miss a beat and his longshot chances
might not seem so long, after all.

Brenner left ECU with two sea-
, ons of eligibility remaining and was
signed by the Rage, whose coaches
noticed him at his tryout for the Bal-
timore CFL club.
"He's doing a wonderful job
Rage head coach Bob Kay said. "We
traded an All-League kicker in Mike
Black to the Iowa Barnstormers be-
cause we felt that Anthony was our
kicker for the future.
"We feel like we can win with him
as our kicker, and he has done very
well. He has one of the strongest legs
in the league, and in time should be
one of the best kickers in this league.
He has been very productive so far
Brenner has connected on 40-of-
46 PAT's this year and has made 9-of-
29 field goal attempts. The Arena
Football League's goal posts are half
as wide as NFL-regulation posts.

family, as his younger sister was re-
cently featured in Sports Illustrated's
Faces in the Crowd after booting a
47-yarder last season for High Point
Central High School. Her now-famous
older brother's longest high school
field goal was just 42 yards.
Smith and Brenner both share
the dream of making it big in profes-
sional football, even if they aren't in
the NFL - yet.

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