Fraudulent investment costs ECU
Investment scanda
causes loss on
ECU's $2.5
million investment
Wendy Rountree
Assistant News Editor
At the end of last month, a three-
year-long investment fraud was uncov-
ered by the Common Fund, one of the
investment groups that manage ECU's
money. As a result, ECU will not get
the investment returns on the $2.4
million that where expected, but the
university is far from broke.
"The Common Fund is a invest-
ment management group established
for the management of endowments
and pension plans for colleges and uni-
versities said Richard Brown, vice
chancellor for business affairs. "It is a
huge organization
ECU is not the only university
that will not see a return on its in-
vestment. Common Fund manages
over $20 billion in assets for 1.400
colleges, universities and schools.
Brown said that ECU's invest-
ments are separated into two groups:
the ECU Foundation, which is a fund-
raising corporation, and an endow-
ment fund.
"There is an investment commit-
tee which handles the policies regard-
ing investments for both the Founda-
tion and the endowment fund Brown
said. "Those two entities in total
equal $12 million of investments
The university splits those invest-
ments among three money managers.

of them Brown said. "It's the con-
cept of diversification. Don't put all
your money in one place
The investments include both
stocks and bonds.
Of the $12 million, the Common
Fund handles about $2.5 million of
ECU's money. The Common Fund
then takes the $2.5 million and places

ferent brokerage houses and invest-
ment managers. Then the brokerage

First Capital Strategists, one of these
investment managers, discovered the
wrong doings of one of their traders.
Kent Ahrens, on June 29.
Common Fund had invested a lot
of its money (universities' money) with
First Capital. According to the July 14,
1995 issue of The Chronicle of Higher
Education, Julie L. Nicklin said, "First
Capital would lend stock holdings in
the Common Fund's accounts to large
brokerage firms in return for cash, in
order to increase earning. Ahrens was
in charge of an index-arbitage program
that would use that cash to buy stock-
market futures equal in value to those
stock, profiting from the difference in
prices between them.
"The problem with his trade, ac-
cording to the Common Fund, was
that he didn't buy enough futures and
left himself unhedged against market
rises and in violation of the company's

said Joan Worthington. assistant vice
president for communications for the
university system. "Anytime there's
a sense that there are problems or
policies have not been reviewed for
a length of time, the board will re-
view them
The decision to review the policy
came after a highly publicized scan-
dal at the University of North Caro-
lina at Chapel Hill, where tenured
professor James Williams admitted to
having an extramarital affair with a
student and to paying the student
from a trust fund he was responsible
for. UNC-Chapel Hill officials are now
trying to dismiss Williams.
The Daily Tar Heel, UNC-Chapel
Hill's student newspaper, has re-
ported the incidents several times,
and is continuing coverage of the pro-
cedures for Williams' dismissal. Will-
iams admitted to having intercourse
with several students in his office
over the course of a few years. He
was finally detected when a routine
audit was performed on the trust
fund he paid his girlfriend from. Wil-

ECU was also recently involved
with a facultystudent relationship
ending with the resignation of Assis-
tant Police Chief John Taylor earlier
this month. Current policy prohibits
amorous relations between faculty
and students. TEC published an ar-
ticle last week concerning sexual ha-
rassment policies and what action
students could take. Any student or
employee who believes he or she is a
victim of sexual harassment should
talk to Dr. Mary Ann Rose, assistant
to the chancellor for the equal em-
ployment office.
Worthington said she is unsure
of how long the review will take, or
what the results might be.
"There's no set time, the board
and its committees meet monthly -
generally, it's a matter of months
Worthington said. "They'll be mak-
ing decisions and recommendations
for a final report
She said the need to review the
controversial issue came from con-
cerned parents, press and board
members. The board is also review-
ing academic advising policies and
minority recruitment processes
across the state.

Inmates clean up local counties

Staff Writer
Don't be alarmed if you see in-
mates walking down the highway, no
prison breaks have been reported.
Nearby Greene County is home
to an inmate labor program that has
set a precedent for the rest of the
state's correction system.
Greene Correctional Center was
chosen for the pilot Community Work
Program in May 1994 to put more
prisoners to work and to save taxpay-
ers money.
"We started the program with
three squads of 14 prisoners just over
a year ago, and now we have eight
squads with anywhere from nine to
14 prisoners in each squad said
Russell Ginn, superintendent of
Greene Correctional Center. "If every-
one is healthy and the weather per-
mits, we have a maximum of 126 pris-
oners out working each day

mates perform labor-intensive jobs
such as clearing brush and debris
from roadways.

inmates have spent several thousand
hours working on more than 700 com-

jobs has increased to 16,000.

Cliff's Notes give readers
wider view of culture
(CPS) - If anyone doubts aca-
demic multiculturalism has arrived,
maybe they should take a trip to the
campus bookstore and scan through
the Cliff's Notes titles.

staples as Beowulf and Great Expec-
tations , the familiar black-and-yellow

you're teaching American literature,
you're mandated to teach books writ-

are the kinds of authors being
Carey said teachers begged the
company to come out with guides to
the books their students have been
studying, such as The Joy Luck Club
by Amy Tan and
Know Why The

based publisher will

was written by a

the decision to ex-

company's desire to portray itself as
politically correct. "It's where the

Sneaky fliers to

A traveler wants to fly from
San Francisco to Denver. United's
one-way fare is $532. But a one-way
fare from San Francisco to Colo-
rado Springs. Colo with a connec-
tion in Denver is $129 - the "hid-
den-city" fare. Get off in Denver.
Savings: $350.
Such examples can be found on
dozens of routes.

Using hidden-city tickets isn't
illegal, but airlines say it violates

"Let's say I own a stock, and it's

"If on the futures market someone
believes it's going to be worth a
$1,050 a share two months from now,

from his company, and over a three

to make up for the lost money.
"That's where the fraud enters

Ahrens lost more and more
money. By the time he was found out,
the Common Fund had lost $128 mil-

Brown said it took First Capital
and Common Fund a long time to dis-
cover Ahrens because he was skillful
at concealing his dealings.
When the Common Fund ordered
an "almost routine" audit of what he
was doing at First Capital, Ahrens
went to his bosses and revealed the
entire situation.

With three days left in summer school, we at TEC have
one thing to say - whew!
For those of us who have accomplished as close to noth-
ing as humanly possible, the image of a fall semester com-
plete with two newspapers a week, football games and a regu-
lar class schedule sounds very inviting. But to the majority -
those who have slaved over their texts for the past 10 weeks
- the end of summer school means several short weeks until
beginning the burnout cycle once again.
Summers in Greenville have always been infamous for
fun and relaxation, but this summer seems a little different.
While usually the summer means empty bar stools at Chico's,
no lines at BW3 and plenty of room in the mosh pit at The
Attic, this summer has brought a larger crowd to the Emer-
ald City and primarily to downtown.
If the overcrowded downtown scene was the only down-
fall to the summer of'95 in Greenville, things wouldn't be so
bad. But summer school students have had to contend with
hikes to Todd Dining Hall to get a real meal, delayed pay-
checks and scandal after scandal involving our university's
trusted officials. To make matters worse, orientation partici-
pants, and their parents, couldn't find anywhere better to
park than in our spaces - the same ones that cost us 70
But on the bright side, summer school means playing
intramurals twice a week, scantily dressed men (and women)
and road trips to the beach. All of this without an ounce of
guilt. It's not every day that you have the time to fill your
cooler full of beverages and head east for the day to soak up
the rays and the sights. It won't be long before your morn-
ings and afternoons are filled with textbooks, blue books and
2 pencils and your nights are filled laboring over nome-
Make the most of the next three weeks; they're all you've
got until Dr. Doe makes you stand up to recite your name,
classification and tell a little about yourself.
TEC will give it a week before you're ready to pack your
bags and head out of mom and pop's house and back to the
Emerald City for more fun and excitement - Pirate style.

Moving out, moving on
What more is there to say? This
is my final opinion column for TEC
before I move on to bigger, but not
necessarily better things. I feel confi-
dent that I've whined about what
there has been to whine about, praised
what there has been to praise, and
duly noted those things that spoke
for themselves in mv short time here
at ECU.
I have enjoyed writing these col-
umns and I hope that at least a few of
you have enjoyed reading them. 1 have
wondered occasionally if 1 have ne-
glected important issues to vent over
trivial matters well, who is to say
what is trivial? The things that go on
around us in our everyday lives effect
us every bit as much (and usually
more directly) than the things that go
on in the Chancellor's office, the
Governor's office or even Capitol Hill.
And the great thing about the
little things that bug you is that there
is often something you could feasibly
do to correct them. Write a letter,
make a speech, disable someone's ve-
hicle (this is a joke, and I take no re-
sponsibility for anyone who may de-
cide to try it,) incite a riot (also a joke
and illegal) and you can likely get at
least a couple of people to alter their
irritating driving habits, or stop leav-
ing their pets in the car on hot days,
or behave a little better in restaurants.
However, if you try these tactics
on a national scale, the only result you
are likely to get is an FBI background
check (do you really want that ugly
little incident in the eighth grade
Andi Pov ell Phillips
Opinion Write.
I feel confident
that I've whined
about what
there is is whine
dredged-up again?) and a black mark
Besides, we can't begin to fix our
really big problems: rampant crime,
drug abuse, guns and crooked politi-
cians (redundant, I know), without
first addressing those issues a little
closer to home; bad manners, slow
traffic, lack of sufficient parking space
and summer school stress.
You scoff, but it is true! For in-
stance: Why do you think so many
politicians go bad? Do they wake-up
one day and say "Hey! I think I'll go
into politics, line my pockets with
other people's money and live the
high life until I get caught and go to
prison?" No! These are people who
have been allowed for years to hold
us up in traffic, cut in front of us in
line at the grocery store, park in the
handicap spaces without getting tick-
eted and they have come to expect it
as their right to do whatever they
please whenever they please! That's
why they always seem to be surprised
to learn that what they were doing
was wrong when they get arrested for
stealing money from social security
Or taking their extended families on
vacation at the taxpayer's expense
(Remember Nixon? He seemed genu-
inely perplexed that the American
people were treating him so badly just
because he had some of his people
break into the Democratic National
Headquarters to steal some docu-
ments so he could illegally win the
next election!)
We let them do whatever else they
wanted with no argument except the
occasional obscene gesture, why
should we care about this? So, you see,
it is my theory that there is a direct
correlation between how much trivial
garbage we allow people in our dai
lives to get away with and how crooked
our politicians are. So, the next time
you see some jerk park his $30,000
BMW sideways across two handicap
spaces, first, let the air out of his tires
(again, 1 take no responsibility) then,
find a cop to give him a big, fat ticket
(I could give you a list of local restau-
rants where you could find several cops
at any given time of the day, but that's
a whole other story!) You will not only
be making sure a jerk gets what he
deserves for once, but you will also be
helping to clean-up our political sys-
tem at the same time!
Well, that's it for my opinions.
Thanks for reading! Bye everybody!
The death of the nicotine dream Helms: washed up, out-of-date
I stopped smoking recently. I had
my last cigarette just over four weeks
ago, which means I haven't had one
in about four months now. That's what
it feels like, and all you smug never-
smoked-a-day-in-your-life creeps know
exactly where you can go, and what
sharp and unwieldy objects you can
shove up which orifice along the way.
I didn't quit because of health
reasons. I still feel just as physically
horrible as I did before; I didn't quit
for financial reasons - if the price had
gone up to five bucks a pack, I would
have been letting my fingers do the
walking through the yellow pages that
very evening, looking for a second job.
And I most certainly didn't quit be-
cause of the pressure of the anti-ciga-
rette mentality that all you body-
temple cig police keep printing up on
pamphlets and sliding under my door
at three in the morning. I'd always
been courteous about my carcinogens;
if you'd rather I not smoke in your
cars or apartments or classrooms, fine
and good -1 certainly wouldn't want
to infringe on the noough zone laws.
But if you would have come up
to me outside the building and told
me to put it out, I would have glee-
fully blown smoke in your eyes and
flipped sparks in your hair. My
thoughts were, when Ma Nature came
up to me and lodged a complaint then
I would grind out the butt Until then,
you people could grin and bear it and
stay away from me, preferably upwind.
No, the reason I down-to-the-fil-
tered my last Marlboro a couple of
years back was because I didn't like
being chained to anything. It was a
drag poking through the pack around
II o' clock every night and counting
up how many smokes I had left, then
doing some mental arithmetic to see
if I would have enough to last me until
morning, or should I go ahead and
buy another pack before the conve-
nience stores closed.
Brian Wright
Opinion Columnist
I would have
gleefully blown
smoke in your
eyes and
flipped sparks
in your hair
A lot of smokers have an "emer-
gency pack that they keep around
in the back of the kitchen drawer or
in the glove compartment, in case a
crisis should rear its head during the
wee hours. I never did. Or rather, my
emergency pack always seemed to get
thin and ultimately vanish every night
around 10.
I had tried to kick the habit sev-
eral times in the past, and always
managed to pick the worst possible
times, i.e finals week, around the end
of the month when I'm really scram-
bling to get the money to pay my bills,
and when I went to see Pink Floyd at
Carter-Finley last summer (and believe
you me, anyone who went to that
show and says that they didn't smoke
something is lying shamelessly to
Every time, though, I'd crap out
and go back to them, sawing through
my usual pack and a half an hour. I'm
in the school of art, you see, and I
was trying to bum my lungs into twin
briquettes so I could crack them out
of my chest for my fall drawing classes
and do some charcoal sketches with
Eventually, though, I realized
that there was only one thing in life I
wanted to be addicted to (and if it
turns out that the joke's on me and
there is indeed a heaven in the classi-
cal sense, I assure you that I will be
mainlining nicotine and smoking four
Camels at the same time before the
pearly gates have even clanged shut
behind me) is my girlfriend. I didn't
stop because she told me to, she didn't
even ask me to. I stopped because of
the things in life 1 was addicted to -
cigarettes and her - cigarettes were
what was making me miserable.
So I quit, and here I am, 40 years
later. Strangely enough, I don't regret
all the years I was smoking, and even
stranger, I don't regret that I quit ei-
ther. The only thing that really bugs
me about the whole experience are
these wretched DT's.
I won't go into the hideous details
of my badly choreographed withdrawal.
There's too much depravity and pro-
fanity behind it for anyone to ever al-
low printing it, and besides, it's not
even over yet
Writing down my line of reason-
ing for tossing out my ashtrays, how-
ever, is the only means I have left of
expressing it My speech has gradually
become less and less intelligible, and
my movements more spastic and un-
controllable with each passing day. I
feel like Jeff Goldblum from The Fly.
I'm guessing that it will be finals
on Friday that will finish me off. All
that stress and anxiety is going to cause
my body to shear itself apart and fly
into atoms, and all that will be left will
be my tennis shoes and the two black-
ened raisinettes that were my lungs.
The things are so hardened by now that
they could probably survive a ground-
zero nuclear blast
But again, I have no regrets about
either lighting up that first cigarette
or about grinding that last one out
and if the occasional inconvenience of
spontaneous human combustion is
price to pay for being able to take the
stairs again, then so be it
WRAL's airwaves carried the
conservative commentator's voice
across the coastal plains of North
Carolina. The G. Gordon Liddy of his
day made a name for himself by bring-
ing his conservative dogma into
homes for 12 years. Since 1972 he
has made a name across the nation
for our state bv representing North
Carolina in the U.S. Senate.
He has espoused the angry
agenda of militant conservatives since
his election to the Senate 23 years
ago. During those days he criticized
the U.S. for not continuing to fight
in Vietnam. He also railed against
slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin
Luther King and accused him of es-
pousing "action-oriented Marxism
Jesse Helms soon became an icon of
his time.
Senator Helms made his name
by fighting communism in the tradi-
tion of Joe McCarthy. Before his elec-
tion, he called Richard Nixon's trip
to China "appeasement" of commu-
nism. Helms fervently fought against
arms control agreements negotiated
by the Nixon Administration during
his first term. President Nixon won
that round.
He carried his fight against com-
munism to new heights during the
Ford and Carter administrations. He
argued the U.S. should not reduce
nuclear weapons, despite being able
to destroy the world seven times over.
Jesse Helms fought against the
SALT-1I treaty with the zeal one
would expect. Jesse Helms prided
himself on not being moderate.
During the Reagan years, he and
the late Sen. John East cast the only
two dissenting votes against confirm-
ing Casper Weinberger as Secretary
of Defense. Cap wasn't strong enough
for them. During this term, he aban-
doned his role on the Agriculture
Committee to take a seat on the Sen-
ate Foreign Relations Committee. He

wanted to have a greater impact in
rooting out communists.
He often butted heads with fel-
low Republicans on that commit-
tee. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Indi-
ana.) and other Republicans fa-
vored a bill condemning South Af-
rica for apartheid. Helms re-
sponded by asserting that pressure
to abolish apartheid would cause
Pretoria to fall to leftists. He ar-
gued the U.S. should ignore human
rights abuses if it would stem the
tide of leftism.
Jesse Helms stood up and sup-
ported anti communist dictators
when no one else would. He sup-
ported Chilean President Augusto
Pinochet, whose government killed
and exiled thousands. When the
New York Times ran an article stat-
ing Helms was being investigated
for leaking classified information to
Pinochet, he accused the State De-
partment of having planted the
documents and alleged the CIA had
spied on him. The Reagan State
Department was weak on commu-
nism in Helms' mind.
He also strongly criticized
President Reagan's support for cen-
trist Jose Napolean Duarte in El
Salvador's 1984 Presidential Elec-
tion. Helms vocally supported
right-wing candidate Roberto
d'Aubuisson, who had been linked
to death squad murders. "You don't
have perfect choices in trying to
prevent a communist takeover of
this world Helms explained.
Helms continued carrying his
foreign policy torch by supporting
Philippine President Ferdinand
Marcos in 1986. He stated replac-
ing Marcos with democratically
elected Corazon Aquino "happens
to be on the agenda of the social-
ist world right now Helms also
worked hard to block passage of an
international treaty making geno-
cide a crims. He contended that
would threaten the U.S. Constitu-
tion and bring frivolous lawsuits
against the United States. Jesse
Helms wanted to use every tool,
regardless of how extreme, to fight
Jesse Helms staked his career
on fighting communists at every
turn. He relentlessly tried to force
U.S. foreign policy farther toward
taking extreme stances during the
Cold War. Much of his support
stemmed from willingness to go to
extremes in battling the leftist
threat during the Cold War. Today,
Jesse Helms still sits in the U.S.
Senate, an icon of a generation
that passed with the fall of the
Berlin Wall.
Today, the nation calls for new
faces and change in Washington.
Slogans like "term limits" and
"new ideas" are buzz words on
Capitol Hill. Since the Cold War's
close, America is ushering in a new
era in politics. Jesse Helms stands
at a set of political crossroads. His
biggest issue has fallen by the way-
side and is out of date. As he gears
up for another election campaign
in 1996, voters must ask if perhaps
he hasn't too.

to hate MTV. All they played was

That's right, folks! Jerry Zucker
is the proud father of First Knight,
Hollywood's latest attempt to bring
King Arthur's story to the screen.
To assist him. Zucker has cast Sean
Connery as Arthur, Julia Ormand as
Guinevere and Richard Gere as
Lancelot. With Connery playing
Arthur, one would expect a movie
as enchanting as Camelot and as
powerful as Excalibur. What we get
is a dull-edged sword.
Anyone vaguely familiar with
the Arthur legend knows of the love
triangle between the King, the
Queen and Camelot's best knight.
It's an intriguing tale on which
Zucker and writer William Nicholson
focus the film. However, the film-
makers are so interested in the

and Guinevere (a sexual tension that
feels very forced in this movie) that

Ormand is a goo actress, but

she is simply a love object for the

Lancelot's obsession with
Guinevere, there is little sense of his
loyalty towards Arthur. When
Lancelot finally states that he has
found his purpose in Arthur and
Camelot. it's hard to believe him sim-
ply because we have not seen the
two male leads interact enough to
establish any real relationship.
Everyone should be excited
about Connery playing King Arthur.

Chinese protestor thrives
BOSTON (AP) - Chai Ling mates
a strong first impression.
The Princeton graduate is a sharp
dresser, speaks English fluently and com-
mands respect with her quick wit and
steady eye contact She also moves eas-
ily among top executives as she advises
companies on management techniques.
She'll tell you she is simply a suc-
cessful young Boston businesswoman -
who also happens to be the most wanted
female criminal in China.
Chai was one of the first students
to converge on Tiananmen Square in the
spring of 1989 and one of the first to
refuse food until the government agreed
to talk reform with the protesters.
When the People's Liberation Army
descended on the square seven weeks
later, opening fire on the demonstrators,
she was among the last to leave. She and
other student leaders formed a human
shield to protect the thousands fleeing
the center of Beijing.
"The bullets didn't choose me she
Now, six years later, the 29-year-old
lives quietly in Boston, concentrating on
a career in business while working on a
book about how one of the most promis-
ing teen-agers from the seaside town of
Ri Zhao became one of China's most
wanted dissidents.
She wasn't always a firebrand. Chai
had been a model student at Beijing
Normal University, where she helped
found the first cafe on campus. She even
waited tables and helped make the cof-
She studied child psychology, ran
track and helped oiganize campus work-
in 1982, at the age of 16, Chai was
hailed by the Young Communists League
as one of the country's top 100 students.
But the events of April 15,1989 -
her 23rd birthday - changed her life. That
was the day former Communist Party
chief Hu Yaobang died of a heart attack.
Hu had been ousted from power
two years earlier for failing to crack down
on students' pro-democracy demonstra-
tions, so Chai and thousands of others

"Mainstream meaning com-
monplace. Music made for mass ap-
peal, enjoyed by everyone.
"Alternative meaning outside
the normal. Music made for a more
narrow appeal, enjoyed by people
who want something different.
Does anybody else see the con-
tradiction in terms here?
MTV sure doesn't seem to. Ev-
ery new rock band that comes along
is called "alternative no matter what
it sounds like. It's all the same to
MTV. Hey, look! It's new! It has gui-
tars! The lead singer doesn't tease
his hair! It must be alternative! Slap
that label on and ship it!
Somewhere along the line, MTV
managed to change the meaning of
the word alternative. Rather than re-
ferring to a band's place in the mu-
sic market (outside the mainstream),
it now refers to a musical style.
The problem is. alternative mu-
sic was more than REM and Nirvana
before those bands broke. Groups
with .sounds as diverse as Primus and
They Might Be Giants were welcomed
under the alternative umbrella. It en-
compassed a whole world of sound
that was rejected by the mainstream.
But now the alternative label has
become MTV's biggest marketing
strategy. Being "different" is in, it
seems, and being "alternative" auto-
matically makes you different. Even
if you're just recycling old guitar riffs
from the '70s.
MTV never really changed. They
just shifted gears. Once, they were
cloning Debbie Gibson and John Bon
Jovi. But by 1991 the clones were
coming out diluted, like eighth gen-
eration video: so blurry around the
edges that they weren't worth watch-
Now they're trying to clone Kurt
Cobain and Eddie Vedder. The prob-
lem is, Gibson and Bon Jovi were
working from a formula that was eas-
ily reproduced. Whatever formulas
Cobain and even Vedder have used
are unique to themselves. Any at-
tempts to clone them are doomed to
Granted, this isn't a new prob-
lem. The American music indu.stry
has always co-opted the underground
to prop up their sagging profits. It
happened to the hippies, it happened
to the punks, and now it's happen-
ing to the alternative scene.
Alternative is dead. MTV is evil,
and now I can finally crawl back into
the underground and wait for some-
thing to happen. Ah, it's 'good to be
Nothing was organized, she recalled
Some brought wreaths or wrote poems.
Chai and others started giving speeches,
calling on the government to become
more democratic.
She never intended to take com-
mand of the students who (locked to
Beijing from across the country. But
within a month, she had been elected a
commander and the occupation of
Tiananmen Square had begun.
"To go demonstrate on the street
in China is to take a great risk she said.
"I had a vague idea of the danger, but I
had no idea that my whole lite would be
turned upside down
When the tanks rolled in on June
4. 1989. Chai urged the crowd to hold
its ground. Government troops killed
hundreds of the unarmed demonstrators.
Chai tied into hiding; in the aftermath.
the Chinese government listed her 4
on their list of 21 student leaders who
had eluded capture, imprisonment and
even execution.
"All we wanted was a dialogue with
the government Chai said "Why did
they do this when all we wanted was
something better for the nation? I still
have to question why there was a need
for force, why they had to kill people
For 10 months. Chai lived under the
protection of strangers, starting with a
few workers she met on a tram immedi-
ately after the massacre. They knew who
she was. what had happened in Beijing,
and wanted to help, she said.
"It was wry dangerous for them.
for their families, their children. These
are really the heroes. The heroes are still
in China she said
Chai estimates about 200 people
risked their lives to smuggle her out ot
China. She turned up in Paris with her
husband, dissident Ivng Congde, in April
1990, the same year she was nominated
for the Nobel Prize.
Although her husband chose to stay
in France. Chai moved to the United
States and resumed her graduate stud-
ies at Princeton University's Woodrow
Wilson School of Public and Interna-
tional Affairs, where she received a
master's degree.
She now divides her time between
Boston and Washington. D.C where she
runs the China Dialogue foundation lob-
bying the LS. government on policy to-
ward China.
The L'nited States, she says, must
avoid selling out human rights in the
name of economic opportunity in China.
Chai misses her homeland and her
parents, brothers and sisters.

she said.
Those sneaky Ramones even put
a hidden track on this release; track
13 is a cover of an old cartoon theme
song about a certain web slinger. And
with that the CD ends and one sits and
contemplates the end of this band. It
is really kind of sad to think of this as
The Ramones' last release ever, but at
the same time I am kind of relieved for
the boys.
They have done some ungodly
amounts of touring through the '70s,
'80s and '90s and never really "broke
through so to speak. Joey Ramone
has voiced his displeasure with the re-
cent success of such bands as Green
Day. They become millionaires with one
album while The Ramones stay true
to the game and stay broke. They have
suffered for their art and had a lot of
fun along the way.
This review is an end in more ways
than one. The Ramones are retiring, a
band that many would call the first
punk band on the planet. They have
influenced countless bands and people
over the years. They were the first live
band I ever saw in my life and they
certainly made a lasting impression on
me that is not so obvious but still very
prevalent in my character. Hey! Ho!

ECU's 1995 summer sports season
started out red-hot as the men's track
team made a return trip to the NCAA
Outdoor Track and Field Championships
after posting a time of 39.63 in the 4 x
100 Meter Relay race. The season-best
time came en route to claiming the 1C4A
Championships in Fairfax, Va. ECU's time
was one of the top 12 in the country.
The Pirates finished eighth in the na-
tion in Knoxville. earning them All-Ameri-
can Honors.
"We ran probably as good as we
could in that race said ECU Head Track
Coach Bill Carson
ECU baseball came to an abrupt halt
on May 18 after back-to-back losses to
the University of Richmond and the Col-
lege of William and Mary in the CAA
Tournament held in Kinston. The losses
dropped the Pirates record to a disap-
pointing 29-26.
"Like any good club, we had to im-
prove and we never did said ECU Head
Coach Gary Overton. "It was disappoint-

the season than we were at the begin-

squad are looking forward 10 contend-

again shine as bright as championship

As NFL training camps open
nationwide, ECU's biggest gun still
finds himself without the full ap-
proval of his team's front-office
brass - and it's a shame. Jeff Blake,
who single-handedly ressurected a
floundering Cincinnati Bengal of-
fense, must once again battle ma-
jor pro disappointment David
Klingler for the
starting job on
David Shula's
Bengal squad.
Blake will
shine again in
Cincy this year
if he is given a
chance, with
the improved
running game
and an improv-
ing defense.
He's clearly the
best QB on the
roster. Don't be
suprised if
Klingler is gone and seventh-round
pick John Walsh becomes Blake's
backup mid-season
The Carolina Panthers look
suprisingly tough for a first-year
franchise. CM Bill Polian, who came
from the Buffalo Bills, and coach
Dom Capers (Pittsburgh), have as-
sembled a roster that has a feature

backers and excellent special teams

ring this year, but hey, it comes with

who rode the shooting of Cleave Nix
and the snappy passing of Stephen

over "Blue Chips" despite the dead-

Facing them in the semifinal will
be the "Three Amigos who smashed
the "Panthers" 51-29 behind the in-
side play of Jim McGee and the shoot-
ing of Kevin Stone. The "Panthers"
were lead by the solid play of Matt

The other semifinal will feature
two teams that started the season on
the waiting list. The "Unrestricted
Free Agents" lead by the knuckleball
jump shots of Quinton Manley
outlasted "Tixe 52-39 while the

Browning, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound

Kent State and Maryland. Originally,
the suspension was for the entire
season and Browning had enter-
tained thoughts of entering this
season's supplemental draft.
The NCAA eligibility committee
met late last week in deciding his eli-
gibility after Browning appealed the
earlier suspension. In an hour-long
conference call, the decision was
made to reduce the senior's suspen-
sion to just the first three games.
"I'm very happy and I'm re-

made a mistake, but I understand
that now. and I want to thank the

Two veterans
battling for
Panthers starting
quarterback job
(AP) - The Carolina Panthers
began concentrated preparations
Monday for something new - their
first game - with an age-old question:
Who should start at quarterback?
Heading into Saturday's exhibi-
tion opener against the Jacksonville
Jaguars, the Panthers' quarterback
depth chart lists Frank Reich and Jack
Trudeau as first-team.
"We don't have a quarterback
controversy Panthers' head coach
Dom Capers said. "We've got compe-
tition, like probably, a lot of teams
around the league
Reich and Trudeau have been
friendly rivals in their quest to direct
the offense. Kerry Collins, the Pan-
thers' number one draft pick, is get-
ting almost equal time at quarterback.
But Collins is number three, and Ca-
pers doesn't see the Penn State rookie
moving up during preseason.
"I think something would have
to change drastically Capers said.
"Kerry's in there competing, but we're
just thinking in terms of just trying
to get Kerry as many repititions as
we can at this point. Our plan is to
just bring Kerry along
That leaves Reich, a 10-year
backup at Buffalo, and Trudeau, who
started 49 games in his nine-year ca-
reer with Indianapolis and the New
York Jets.
Capers says he has yet to decide
whether Reich or Trudeau would start
Saturday in Canton, Ohio.
Reich would appear to have the
most to lose. When he signed with
the Panthers as an unrestricted free
agent, he did so with the desire to fi-
nally become a starter.
He made just eight starts with the
Bills, but earned a reputation for mak-
ing the most of his limited chances
while backing up Jim Kelly on a pe-
rennial contender. He won his first
four starts and directed the NFL's
greatest comeback, rallying the Bills
from a 32-point deficit to a victory
against Houston in the 1992 playoffs.

the prospect of competiting against

The biggest news to hit ECU this
summer was that of the rebirth of the
Pirate, Wolfpack and Tarheel football ri-
valry. The announcement came on the
heels of numerous meetings between
ECU Athletic Director Mike Hamrick.
NCSU Athletic Director Todd Turner at id
UNC Athletic Director John Swofford.
'Die last series meeting with the Wolfpack
was at Carter-Finley Stadium in 1987.
and ended in a 32-14 Pirate victory. The
series, which could begin as early as
1998, will be played on a home and home
basis, with a game in Greenville, a game
in Raleigh and possibly a game at a neu-
tral cite. The instate rivalry will genet:
ate big money for eastern North Caro-
lina and firmly plant ECU in the hearts
and minds of football fans everywhere
Paramount in the decision to renew
the rivalry' between toe schools may have
been the approval by ECU's Board of
Trustees of a master plan that will in-
crease Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium's seating
capacity to 46,000 seats by the start of
the 1997 season, and ultimately to
60,000 seats.
The new master plan is sectioned
into four phases. Phase one will bring
the seating capacity t 46,1 M H i seats and
also includes the construction of an
8,000-seat upper deck on the north side
of the stadium, as well as permanent seat
bleachers in the east end zone. The cost
of phase one is $11.5 million.
Phase two of the plan includes con-
struction of club seating beneath the
north side upper deck. Phase three will
be the addition of a new press box and
10,000 new seats on the south side of
the stadium. Finally, phase four will add
the remaining 3,000 to 4,000 seats to
the east end zone, which will bring
Dowdy-Ficklen's seating capacity to
