(AP) - A private school and
a high-rise hotel chose to close
their doors because a letter sent
to the FBI said a bomb would
explode in the Raleigh area on
Monday.
The two buildings shut
down, apparently with other
businesses, because of an anony-
mous bomb threat sent to FBI
headquarter in Washington
three months ago. Raleigh po-
lice on Sunday also began put-
ting up "No Parking" signs a
block around the downtown in-
tersection where the letter
claimed the explosion would
occur.
(AP) - Hurricane Felix
never really hit the North Caro-
lina coast, but its impact is still
being felt.
State officials have paid for
a national advertisement to let
vacationers know that Felix
spared the North Carolina coast
and that the welcome mat is out.
The state Travel and Tour-
ism Division placed a full-page
advertisement in Friday's out-of-
state editions of USA Today to
persuade tourists - many under
the impression the storm hit the
coast - not co cancel their vaca-
tion plans.

The delay in Joyner Library's
construction may mean headaches
for students trying to research this
December and next spring.
The move from old into new is
set to begin anytime from Decem-
ber until March of '96, according
to a press release sent out concern-
ing the library.
"Phase i of the library's move
may affect what research and as-
signments can be done during
spring semester the release
stated.
Library administrators are
planning to set up an information
desk to help students find materi-
als which might otherwise be lost
in the move. Announcements will
also be made as to what sections
of the library are moving and
when.
"There will be three different
moves said Nancy Shires, an as-
sistant professor for Joyner. "As
soon as the addition is complete,
we'll have 90 days to move in
ECU is hoping the move will
occur during Christmas break.
Committees have been formed to
help ease the library's transition
into its new space, but Shires said
delays should still be expected.

The East Carolinian
ECU suffers local
industry's loss
Marguerite Benjamin
Senior Writer
A recent shift in the control of
a local pharmaceutical company
may have serious affects on some
of ECU's research and business pro-
grams.
Burroughs Wellcome, formerly
a prominent figure in the Greenville
business community and a major
contributor of funds to many of
ECU's research programs, has
merged with a
larger company
and is expected
to be completely
phased out
within two
years.
Several de-
partment heads
have expressed
hopes that the
company, now
Glaxo-
Wellcome, will
continue to sup-
port the
school's pro-
grams to some
extent. mmmmmmmjiwimum
According
to Chemistry Department Chair-
man, Chia-yu Li, the effects of the
merge will be felt by many as
Burroughs Wellcome has been
known to donate upwards of $22
thousand a year for research in or-
ganic chemistry.
"We were also endowed by the
Burroughs Wellcome Fund which
provided our department $375,000
for research said Li. "That money
is already deposited, so it's safe.
Next year is another story
Li stated that only three other
schools were awarded the
Burroughs Wellcome Endowment:
Duke University, the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and
North Carolina State University.
"We have been in collaboration
with scientists from Burroughs
Wellcome who have Ph.D.s in chem-
istry who have been very helpful
in assisting us with our research
Li continued. "One by one they are
leaving so that leaves us with no
chemists to talk to in this area
One of the major concerns that
Li and others ex-
" We were also

Wellcome Fund

$375,000 for
research
� Chia-yu Li, Chemistry
Department Chairman
pressed involves
the fact that in
the past several
of ECU's gradu-
ate students, par-
ticularly from the
chemistry and bi-
ology depart-
ments, became
employees of
Burroughs
Wellcome. Ac-
cording to Li, the
graduates were
supplied "a pipe-
line" to the com-
pany.
The chair-
man and a profes-
sor of the biology department,
Charles Bland said the school
should expect a major impact from
the merge. Although the biology de-
partment was not as heavily funded
by the company as the chemistry
department, Bland said the inter-
action with the company's scien-
tists will be missed the most.
"Burroughs Wellcome has rou-
tinely hired a lot of our students,
so I'd say it's a major loss, espe-
cially to graduates Bland said.
"The company also made occa-
sional donations of equipment to
our department. The biology and
chemistry department together re-
ceived a $100,000 endowment
"Luckily we received that be-
fore the merger, or rather the buy-
out Bland said the merge may
open new avenues and the possi-
bility that ECU can turn to Glaxo-
Wellcome for support.
"There is potential with Glaxo,
but it's not the same as having
Burroughs Wellcome in our own
backyard Bland said.
As a representative of the
School of Business, L.H. Zincone,
who is the associate dean and a
worker with professional programs,
offered a more optimistic opinion.
Zincone said, "My personal pre-
diction is that someone else will
own that plant in Greenville
within the next two years, and there
will be another company in the
place of Burroughs Wellcome.
"They can't afford to just let it
sit and do nothing , so we probably
won't be as impacted in that sense
as some may think
The concerns Zincone ex-
pressed reached a level further than
the recent merge between Glaxo
and Burroughs Welcome as he
stated that Burroughs Wellcome
was just one of the many compa-
nies that offered support and funds
to ECU.
"Thinking on a much larger
scale, the thing to keep in mind is
that our school depends on a lot of
other companies who may merge
with larger companies in the fu-
ture Zincone said. "Whereas these
companies have ties with the uni-
versity, those larger companies do
not, and that could introduce a

Fees set to increase again
Amy Roberts
Staff Wrter
Tuition and fee increases are on
the ECU agenda once again.
Students may have noticed an
increase in their bills this semester.
"Tuition that goes toward edu-
cation is reviewed and set annually
by the state legislature said
Mickey Balko, university cashier.
The original increase agreed on
was 3.1 percent.
"This was included in the bills
sent out Balko said.
The state realized this would
not fit their budget and raised tu-
ition 10 percent for in-state students
and eight percent for out-of-state stu-
dents.
"We are not tagging any stu-
dents records since the increase
came after the original bills were
sent out Balko said. "A second bill
for $26 will be sent out with a due
date
University fees also increased by
around $13. Money received from
fees cover a large number of student
services. Some of these services in-
clude: Student Government Associa-
tion (SGA), Media, Transit, Joyner
Library, athletic tickets, Mendenhall
and intramural sports.
SGA debated extensively with
administrators over these fees last
spring, and the board of trustees
voted unanimously to accept SGA's
proposed increase over the admin-
istrators' original proposal.
Other fees such and health and
technology fees also increased.
"The health fee is to supply
medical benefits for students while
they are on campus Balko said.
The technology fee makes sure
that students in every major are
learning how to use the equipment
they will need after graduation.
University fees have also in-
creased due to needs of different de-
partments. Construction and reno-
vation projects on campus are also
paid for out of this money. Another
reason for the increase is to pay uni-
versity debts from bond referen-
dums.
Tuition and fee increases are
necessary to keep students from
ECU competitive with students from
other schools, Balko said.
"We are still in the lower 40 per-
cent of the nation as far as what we
charge in tuition and fees at East
Carolina Balko said.
Asbestos still hazardous
Miriam Brooks
Staff Writer
The hazardous nature of asbestos
has been an issue for years, but does its
presence on ECU's campus really pose
a danger to students and faculty?
Once hailed as a wonder material
in the 50s and 60s, asbestos has come
under attack as one of the major man-
made threats built up around us. As-
bestos was widely used in construction
because of its amazing properties, and
is still used today in lesser amounts.
This naturally occurring mineral,
which is found in some rock formations,
is fireproof, resistant to chemical corro-
sion and provides excellent insulation.
According to the Director of the
Office of Health
"We are exposed
to asbestos all of
the time, even
while walking
down the street
- Phil Lewis, director of the
Office of Health and
Environmental Safety
and Environmen-
tal Safety Phil
Lewis, "Asbestos
was widely used
in any type of
building project
you can think
of
On ECU's
campus, it is
found in a variety
of forms which
range from pipe
insulation to
spray on decora-
tions and treat-
ments for the en-
hancement of acoustical properties of
buildings.
The widespread use of asbestos in
construction was not banned until
around 1979, Lewis said, so it is safe to
assume that all buildings built before
this date contain asbestos in potentially
dangerous concentrations.
While the Office of Environmental
Health and Safety keeps a list of all build-
ings positively known to contain asbes-
tos, many buildings have not even been
tested for the material.
. "As long as the material remains
intact it does not pose a health haz-
ard Lewis said.
Two factors determine whether or
not a structure that contains asbestos
can be occupied by humans. The first is
the friability of the material. Friable ma-
terial, or material that is easily crumbled
and can become airborne, is extremely
dangerous when inhaled in sufficient
quantities. The accessibility of the ma-
terial is another important factor.
"The majority of facilities on cam-
pus contain asbestos as pipe insulation
in areas that the public does not have
access to Lewis said.
Asbestos particular matter causes
lung cancer and asbestosis, which is a
scarring of the lungs. Proving that as-
bestos was a health risk was difficult
because respiratory diseases caused by
exposure to the airborne fibers can take
up to 20 to 30 years to develop.
Asbestos is still utilized in con-
struction, although in lesser quantities
that are deemed acceptable by the EPA.
"There are acceptable levels of as-
bestos exposure Lewis said. "Occupa-
tional limits have been set for employ-
ees who are exposed to asbestos. There
is a minimum concentration that is con-
sidered to be a clean area as long as it
does not exceed that level.
"We are exposed to asbestos all of
the time, even while walking down the
street Asbestos was used extensively in
brake pads. During periods of heavy traf-
fic, when people are applying their
brakes asbestos dust is being gener-
ated
ECU has an
Operation and
Maintenance Pro-
gram for the control
of asbestos-contain-
ing materials in uni-
versity facilities.
This program is de-
signed to limit stu-
dent and faculty ex-
posure to asbestos
fibers. The primary
goal of the program
is to make sure that
material containing
asbestos is kept in
good condition. Ac-
cording to the Op-
eration And Maintenance Program
manual, which is produced by the Of-
fice of Environmental Health and
Safety, "When asbestos-containing ma-
terial is properly managed, release of
asbestos fibers into the air is prevented
or minimized, and the risk of asbestos-
related disease can be reduced to a neg-
ligible level
The manual further specifies that
management of the material is often a
more sound method of control than
removal. This is because improperly re-
moved material can cause asbestos fi-
bers to be released into the air.
ECU's Operation and Mainte-
nance Program has a staff that is
trained in the management of asbes-
tos and accredited by the state of North
Carolina to perform all necessary ac-
tivities. Lewis is an accredited inspec-
tor who regularly monitors the condi-
tions of asbestos-containing materials
on campus.
"We conduct periodic inspections
on campus, especially where we have
ceiling materials and other materials
that the public has access to - particu-
larly dormitories Lewis said. "There
are two dorms on campus that have
asbestos ceiling material which I in-
spect after each semester
All campus residence halls have
been identified as asbestos-containing
structures. Most contain asbestos in
the form of thermal pipe insulation
which students will not come into con-
tact with. Fletcher and Green residence
halls contain asbestos in their ceilings
and Scott and Tyler residence halls
have floor tiles that are composed of
asbestos. The recently refurbished Slay-
Umstead facilities previously contained
asbestos, although the majority of this
had to be removed prior to the recent
renovations.
The asbestos removal involved in
the Slay-Umstead project had to be
done by a certified asbestos contrac-
tor. ECU's Operation and Maintenance
Program can only perform small-scale
projects that are of short duration.
"We mainly take care of emer-
gency situations, such as leaking pipes
where we may have to remove a por-
tion of the pipe insulation to repair it"
Lewis said. "When it goes beyond that
scope, like a renovation project or a
repair activity that involves a large
amount of asbestos, we have to con-
tract it out"
The public is made aware when
asbestos-removal projects are in
progress. Warning signs have to be
posted and the area is usualfy sealed
off. Removal procedures are very com-
plex, and a number of precautions are
taken to ensure that the asbestos fi-
bers are properly contained. According
to the manual, all employees who deal
with asbestos must receive training in
its management and disposal.
Occupants of the building and
housekeeping personnel can also take
part in Asbestos Awareness training
sessions which are offered periodically
by the Office of Environmental Health
and Safety.

state support rapidly dwindling, ECU is
keeping ahead of the game by contact-

A former CIA agent is currently
teaching a course within the political
science department concerning the role
of'intelligence in international politics.
Frank Palumbo is well versed on
the topic of intelligence communities and
has an insider's view after 30 years of
service in the CIA. He began working
for the CIA nine years after it was founded
in 1947, and his involvement in intelli-
gence activities spanned the 1950s. 60s.
and 70s up until his retirement in 1988.
While teaching this course, there
will be areas which cannot be discussed
by Palumbo because of his involvement
However, he does not feel that this con-
stricts him in any way.
" "All of my teaching materials will
be drawn from what is in the public do-
main and only in the public domain
Palumbo said. "I have a secrecy agree-
ment that binds me for life. I have to write
a letter to the agency prior to each course
that I teach and give them my syllabus
and references. I tell them in the letter
that I won't divulge classified informa-
tion or sources and methods. Then I have
to get their approval to teach that
course
Palumbo's course will give students
an overview of the intelligence commu-
nity throughout history with an empha-
sis on the role of intelligence in 1995.
"The intelligence community does
not exist in a vacuum Palumbo said.
"It is a part of a larger domestic political
system and it functions in an interna-
tional environment You have to under-
stand both the politics of the United
States as well as what's going on in the
world in order to understand not only
where we are. but where we are going in
the future
Palumbo will address the history of
intelligence activities in .America.
"I want to give students the under-
standing that intelligence was not some-
thing dreamed up under the National
Security Act of 1947 Palumbo said.
"Rather, some historians believe that the
first intelligence officer in the U.S. gov-
ernment was George Washington who
sent out agents to collect intelligence
against the British
Palumbo will address national se-
curity issues, as well as changes which
face the intelligence community in the
21st century.
"Intelligence communities have his-
torically and traditionally functioned un-
der the Chief of State Palumbo said.
"However, in the 1970s because of
Watergate and the Vietnam War. there
is now a tremendous amount of congres-
sional oversight In 1995. Congress al-
most has more to say about what the
intelligence community is doing and how
they are doing it than the president of
the United States
The role of foreign policy, democ-
racy, freedom, civil liberties and moral-
ity are all inextricably linked with issues
of intelligence. .Although Palumbo will
address each of these issues, he empha-
sizes that the course will be manageable
for students. In addition to teaching.
Palumbo is currently conducting re-
search for a book he hopes to write.
"I am very interested in the period
of Premier Khrushchev's reign in the
Soviet Union from the time of Stalin's
death in 1953 up until Khrushchev was
deposed in 1964 Palumbo said. "I'd lite
to write about that period from the stand-
point of US-Soviet relations and ask, did
we undermine Khrushchev Palumbo
said. "Would the demise of the Soviet
Union have come about sooner if the U.S.
had supported him?"
Palumbo moved to Morehead City.
N.C. from the Washington. D.C. aiea
about four years ago. One of his goals
?.fter retiring from the CIA was to teach.
"I've wanted to teach since about
1975 Palumbo said. "I did some lectur-
ing when I was with the CIA and it's
always been something that I have
wanted to do
Palumbo received a bachelor's de-
gree in political science and an MA in
international politics at the University of
Maryland. He began teaching political
science courses as an adjunct faculty
member of ECU's Continuing Education
Division in 1991. A year and a half ago
Palumbo spent one semester at ECU
teaching a course on state and local gov-
ernment
"When I was recently asked to teach
at ECU again. I jumped at the opportu-
nity because I really learned a lot from
the students while teaching here, "
Palumbo said.
Wells, who was formerly a major
gifts officer for the Shared Visions cam-
paign, declined to comment on the iden-
tity of our amiable alum but said, "He
and his wife are both ECU Grads he
just doesn't like to toot his own hom
. he is the caliber of person you would
want to be around
Among other plans, the College of
Arts & Sciences would like to offer a
number of Doctorate level programs
which are not otherwise available in
N.C, and would like to see a Phi Beta
Kappa chapter in their future.

whole new set of losses.
'It's not the local companies
we should be concerned about, our
focus should be on the people who
make the decisions, the larger com-
panies, and the company heads who
control such things as mergers
According to Rick Sluter of
Glaxo-Wellcome, a lot of factors
contributed to the decision for a
merge, most dealing with world-
wide business matters.
"Because this is an interna-
tional company, we had to take into
consideration those things which
were best for the company Sluter
said. "However, these decisions were
not made lightly. We are well aware
and appreciate all of the things the
company could do when it was in
Greenville, but this is business
The director of corporate com-
munications went on to say that the
first step the company must now
take is to analyze for world wide
need, and then actions may be taken
to buffer the effects of the loss to
Greenville.
"We have to understand what
the impact will be down the road
before we can do anything Sluter
said. "We have been working with
community leaders to identify op-
portunities to help the area. It is my
hope that there are ways we will be
able to help
Several of ECU's leaders, profes-
sors, and students voiced the same
hope.

Joyner's Director Dr. Kenneth
Marks agreed, but said the library
will boast several new additions.
"Group study rooms, that will
be perhaps the most important ad-
dition in terms of students Marks
said. "We should have somewhere
in the range of about three dozen

Despite the mammoth size of
the addition which will double
Joyner's existing floor space, the li-
brary, when completed, will still be
unable to hold all of Joyner's mil-
lion volumes.
"Eventually, they're hoping to
build a book tower, but that's another
bond referendum Shires said.
She said the library's goal is to
minimize the impact the move will
have on students.
"We'll try to run more courier
services to storage areas, even on
weekends Shires said. "We will try
to make the transition as easy as pos-

there's a lot of joints and comers and
round raises on this building, it takes a
lot of coordination to make everything
come together correctly � and keeping

Deemer chose not to comment on �
the project's delay, saying, "some areas .
are behind, some areas are ahead, but,
we're still anticipating the project finish
ing on time
He said the project's progress is-
going rather smoothly, despite some last .
minute changes by the university.
"Overall, we haven't had any major
problems at all, the day-today minor prob
lems we always have, but overall we've, r
been lucky
More than five major contractors .
and 70 subcontractors are at work on ;
the library addition.
"Last year, we had a personnel piob- -
iem, but right now there are plenty out
there . masons are hand to find Deemer
said.
He praised East Carolina Masonry
for their hard work and said up to 150.
people are sometimes working on the
building at one time.
"Any kind of state project like this, �
there's just a lot of red tape and bureau-
cracy to deal with, state inspections, state
construction approvals - stuff like that
is a lot more to deal with over regular
public work Deemer said. 'There's af
lot of people to please out there
Phase two of the library additions"
will include completion of the clock towet
(the concrete foundation has already
been poured), and the demolition of the
existing east wing.
"The east stacks, periodicals and
microforms will move with the first
phase but the west end will stay esserw.
tially the same for the next year and then
it will move in Phase 111 said Dr. Ken-
neth Marks, director of Joyner Library
Reference areas, as well as book
stacks are located in the west side of the!
library. The area which currently holds-
periodicals and the microforms collection
will become an extension of the mall to?
cated on the campus side of the library
The massive columns which stand before"
the doomed building will remain as Jt
milestone of die original structure.
"What I've seen of the existing fa-
cilities and what"s going to be there even-
tually, if s going to be a tremendous new
learning environment Deemer said.
With the completion of Phase III in
1997, the courtyard created around the
clock tower will serve as the new main
entrance to campus, said Nancy Shires,
an assistant professor in the library. The
area will contain a sound sculpture which
makes different sounds as people pass
by.
Originally built in 1954, Joyner Li-
brary has been renovated six different
times for various reasons. The project
currently under construction is estimated
at around $22 million and was made
possible through a bond referendum that
passed in 1993.

Our View
ECU has
finally put
the students'
money to
proper use
with the
founding of
the new
African-
American
Cultural
Center.
Next month, the new Ledonia S. Wright African-American
Cultural Center will open to the public. TEC feels that it's
about time our student fees were put to practical use.
All students pay university fees. In the past, our money
has gone to multi-million dollar construction projects, fiber
optics systems and athletic facility upgrades. Despite the ne-
cessity of such improvements as the fiber optics systems,
projects such as the rec center will never be seen, much less
used by those of us funding it. We hope this new cultural
center may signal an internal change in the administration
with regard to how our money is spent.
The old Ledonia S. Wright building was desperately in need
of repair. Had that building been some type of athletic facility,
the building would have been never needed repair. Funding
would have immediately became available at the first hint of
need.
But thousands of people won't flock to the African-Ameri-
can Cultural Center the way they crowd into Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium. Out of sight, out of mind? Which is more important,
a football game or a center to bring about consciousness for a
people who have been oppressed in this country for over 200
years?
These were questions surely raised by Steven Wright;
Ledonia S. Wright's son and chairperson of the fund-raiser
committee. Mr. Wright has fought a long, hard battle and has
finally won.
The new center will feature all types African-American ex-
hibits such asAfrican-American newspapers and African art
We confess that one center is not going to eliminate rac-
ism and prejudice from the face of the earth, but it certainly is
a step in the right direction.
We, as students, are at ECU to get an education. In the
history classrooms we learn of ancient civilizations and how
those civilizations effect our lives today. But learning does not
stop at the classroom door, nor should funding for facilities
such as the Ledonia S. Wright African-American Culture Cen-
ter.
This facility will be a feather in the cap of ECU and the
learning that will take place in the center will live on and flour-
ish long after football games are forgotten.
Moanfest '95, round two
Like everyone else, I started
classes again last week, and one of
the courses I was dreading not so
much as the others was Music Appre-
ciation. What, I reasoned, could be
more pleasant than sitting in a huge,
dimly-lit room for an hour and listen-
ing to music?
Waiting outside in the lobby of
the auditorium for the class to begin
were dozens of glum-faced fellow stu-
dents who emitted a groan of "I don't
want to be here" with every breath.
Many of them were holding hushed
conversations with their fellow in-
mates, expressing their resignation to
General College fate, and that this had
better not be a class with a lot of
homework.
Once everyone had filed morosely
in and flopped into the cushioned fold-
ing chairs, the instructor Cliff's-Noted
the syllabus, in the process announc-
ing that in addition to the mid-term
and final exams, there would be six
scheduled quizzes over the course of
the semester.
Everyone in the place grumbled
at once, loudly.
It was an amazing effect, really-
the entire room vibrated lightly for a
few seconds, like an auditorium-sized
tuning fork. My pen rolled off the book
I was using as a desk at the time and
clattered away under the row of seats
in front of me, and off into the lost
ball-point pen void where they all seem
to eventually go to die.
Apparently, the instructor was
used to such negative feedback. With-
out missing a beat, he went on to de-
clare that the quizzes would not be
graded, that their purpose was to pre-
pare the class for what was going to
be on the exams.
This did little to assuage the ugly
muttering still rippling through the
room. I could practically see the class
shrinking, and I do not mean huddling

together in any kind of us-against-the-
system fellowship.
I looked up from hunting in vain
for my lost pen and sniffed the air,
wrinkling my nose. The guy sitting
next to me asked what I was doing. I
shrugged, he shrugged, and I went
back to my search.
What I was thinking but knew
better than to say out loud was that
the air in the room reeked, from where
11 out of every 10 people in it were,
in an academic sense anyway, spoiled
rotten.
No one is willing to work hard
for what they want anymore. The
popular trend these days is the "mi-
crowave effort where the job is fin-
ished in a fraction of the regular time,
yet doesn't really taste as good.
Fast and easy are this decade's
buzzwords. It reminds me of a Far
Side panel showing a shopper in a
small room looking at the ony shelf,
which is situated about 14 feet off the
ground, well out of reach. The cap-
tion reads, "Inconvenience Store
Just about everything worth hav-
ing is worth working, striving for. This
includes education, a good job, per-
sonal fulfillment, even love.
I'll be so happy when a vending
machine hits the hallways that dis-
penses college diplomas. At least then
all the whining will stop-just deposit
a few thousand dollars in change, pref-
erably quarters, if you're from North
Carolina, and several thousand more
if you're from out of state. Select the
four-year degree of your choice, press
the right letternumber combination,
watch the roll of paper get pushed off
the ledge by that dispensing coil, and
out of the slot in the bottom of the
machine comes your ticket to big
money.
After all, when the legions of
unskilled dunderheads file into the
work force they'll be ejected faster
than you can say "laughing stock no
matter how many degrees they have.
If they don't have the mental qualifi-
cations to do the job, then the certifi-
cates of qualifications aren't good for
much else than paper airplanes.
The "Me" generation is still go-
ing on. It didn't die, only lowered its
speaking voice a bit The sentiment is
still there - the easy road to the
Shangri-La of success. The American
Dream, where anyone could work his
way up the ladder has gone even lower
than the crooked and bent ideology
of the American Scheme.
At least the "Me-Me-Me's" were
working, even if the bulk of it was
creeping through the gray areas of
ethics, and their goal to get to the
point where they didn't have to work
anymore, while they were still young
enough to dance on the graves of all
the fingers they'd stomped on along
the way.
We've sunk even lower down in
the muck to come face-to-face with the
American Teen, the stereotypical
whining, complaining freeloader who
constantly gets his way sheerly by
being annoying, their sullen, pouting,
put-upon gaze arrowing defiantly out
at us.

From Snow White through the
Lion King Disney has been the master
of animated magic, but this summer
something changed. The quality is still
there, but the message is different.
Pocahontasis the first animated Disney
movie to deal with a real people, but
unfortunately the movie has nothing to
do with historical reality.
A little romanticizing of the past
may be all right but Disney has put to-
gether a drama that is entirely opposite
of reality and just plain bad history.
Pocahontas is so bad that Disney's next
animated feature could be about Mar-
tin Luther King as a racist or Chandi as
the head of a militia.
Rather than Pocahontas convert-
ing Captain John Smith to the ways of
the Native Americans, she became part
of the Jamestown colony. William
Strachey, secretary of the Jamestown
colony, described the young Pocahontas
as doing cartwheels "all the fort over
Pocahontas and Smith were never
even close to being romantically in-
volved. Unlike a film goddess in her
late 20s, Pocahontas was only about 12
when she first met Smith. Smith had
been captured by Pocahontas' father,
Chief Powhatan, and was scheduled to
be executed. Pocahontas intervened
and saved his life. Smith wrote, "She
hazarded the beating out of her own
brains to save mine . . . She so pre-
vailed with her father, that I was safely
conveyed to Jamestown
Years after Smith left Jamestown,
Pocahontas married a colonist named
John Rolfe. Their marriage solidified a
lasting peace between the natives and
the settlers.
The film goes on to display the
Englishmen of the 1607 colony as rac-

Unfortunately
Pocahontas

ist, dupes and fortune-seekers who are
put to destroy Native Americans and the
ecology. Of course any good historian
knows that most of the early colonies
were settled in hopes of religious free-
dom, not for fortune seeking and per-
sonal gain.
But the most stunning turn in the
movie is how Disney treats the spiritual
life of Pocahontas. The movie portrays
her as a Native-American enchanted
with nature and mysticism. The histori-
cal reality is that Pocahontas converted
to Christianity. A giant mural in the
rotunda of the U.S. Capitol honors her
baptism. Smith noted in his written in-
troduction of Pocahontas to Queen
Anne that, "Pocahontas is the first
Christian ever of that nation
Mike Gabriel, the film's codirector,
said, "We decided right off that we
weren't going to make a historical docu-
ment but a love story, an entertainment
that was mindful of historic reality
Mr. Gabriel's idea of being "mindful of
historic reality" really means that Disney
decided to use real names, but nothing
more.
So big deal, Disney screwed around
with historical reality. The revision of
history is just one way popular media
dupes the American public into think-
ing wrongly about the heritage of our
nation. To watch movies about history
today would have you think that every
person with white skin loved to kill In-
dians and was out to destroy the land.
For the last few generations we
have been told that the American expe-
rience is just the chance accumulation
of adventurers, Deists, aristocrats, con-
victs and religious outcasts who came
seeking their own economic gain, seiz-
ing the Indians' land, using slaves to
clear the forests, and stumbling into
assured prosperity because of abundant
natural resources. Some of this hap-
pened, but this overall stereotype bears
little resemblance to the actual reality.
In contrast William Bradford of the
Plymouth colony, in reference to the
colony's relationship with the Native
Americans, called their translator
Squanto, "a special instrument sent of
God for their good beyond their expec-
tation
The movie Pocahontas plays out
like an infomercial for new age religion
while downgrading the heritage of our
nation. And it is done on a level to en-
tice and educate children. Pocahontas
is no longer a woman of American his-
tory, but a rewritten figure promoting
cheap merchandise, bad history and new
age thinking.
Pocahontas the movie is great ani-
mation with no regard Pocahontas the
person. If she were here today she
would have more than one lawyer ask-
ing her to sue for defamation of charac-
ter.
News flash � Garcia was just a man
Jerry Garcia was cool. Jerry Garcia
was radical. Jerry Garcia was awesome.
Now that that is out of the way, I must
say that if s time to roll up our sleeping
bags and drive home to the place I like
to call reality. Jerry Garcia is dead and
life will go on.
I can feel the anger welling up in-
side of you. Right now you are saying
"how can he say that" or "what an in-
sensitive jerk It is important to sit
down and read this before you grab your
pen and begin the response.
Going through the periodicals in
the library in search of information on
the Dead, I read maybe 20 on the life of
Garcia. Some articles were dedicated to
the future of one of America's greatest
bands. Some simply described stories
about camping trips or concerts involv-
ing the Dead or their music. Most told
of Garcia's songs and of his struggles
with drugs. All of these nation-wide ar-
ticles made me want to sleep.
I will concede that Garcia made a
substantial contribution to the history
of music and its subcultures. I also want
to assure those of you who are faithful
listeners to the music of Jerry Garcia
Patrick Ware
Opinion Columnist
When a person
becomes
famous, they
cease to be
perceived as
human
that it is not my intention to ignore the
amazing talent that he had for playing,
writing and performing music. I do,
however, want to express my boredom
with the phenomenon of placing pub-
lic figures on pedestals.
For some reason, when a person
becomes famous, and that person re-
mains famous for their entire life, they
cease to be perceived as human. People
like Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin, Jimmy
Hendrix. and MariJyn Monroe should
remain examples of how drugs and al-
cohol can destroy lives. They can even
destroy the lives of people who success-
fully obtained a venue with which to
communicate to humanity. These people
were just like you and me except they
were bom with different abilities. They
had weakness like any other.
If celebrities are raised up to an
unnatural level not only does it create a'
skewed sense of reality, but it defeats
the purpose of their work. If someone
like Garcia is worshipped instead of re-
spected then they have no means of
communication. When they try to ex-
press something it is not perceived as
being from another person. It is taken
without the knowledge that they are just
like anyone else.
So don't drive to Arizona tomor-
row and search of the spot where you
first heard "Sugar Magnolia Don't
have "Jerry Garcia is God" tattooed on
your arm. Don't name your first bom
child after him and sentence them to
years of ridicule. Remember that he had
talents and weakness like the rest of us
and that you dishonor his memory by
thinking him anything more than a man.

Local films put in
spotlight at festival
First NC film
festival scheduled
for November
Dale Williamson
Staff Writer
Are you the next Quentin
Tarantino, Spike Lee or Steven
Spielberg? Are you also a proud
North Carolinian? If so, here's a topic
of interest for you: the First Annual
North Carolina Film and Video Fes-
tival. This pioneering event is a state-
wide competition for independent
films and videos made and produced
in the Tarheel state, and it will be
held in Raleigh's Rialto Theater on
Nov. 3-5.
According to festival organizer
Marjorie Putnam, the event "hopes
to give exposure to North Carolina
or North-Carolina-related indepen-
dent filmmaking" in an effort to at-
tract larger film distributors to the
area.
This festival will not only allow
independent filmmakers working
within the state to show off their
stuff, but it will also be a competi-
tion where works will be judged and
awards given depending on the cat-
egory. This year there will be six cat-
egories accepted for competition:
Feature, Documentary, Dramatic
Short (60 minutes or less), Experi-
mental and Student (high school age
and under).
Along with presentations of the
entered films and videos, a panel dis-
cussion on independent filmmaking
lead by John Pearson will be held.
Pearson is a producer's representa-
tive who has helped such films as
Clerks and Roger and Me see the
light of day.
Also, Roger McElwee. the direc-
tor of the highly acclaimed documen-
tary Sherman's March, is tentatively
scheduled to speak. If McElwee is
able to attend, Godfrey Cheshire, the

As I left the Emerald City for
Walnut Creek Saturday afternoon to
become part of the third annual
H.O.R.D.E. (Horizons Of Rock Devel-
oping Everywhere) Festival, there
was an uneasy feeling in my gut.
First I made it all the way out of town
before remembering my tickets were
still at home. Second, my car was
spitting and sputtering on the verge
of break down the entire voyage
while on 264. And finally, it was al-
ready raining.
With these three negatives in
mind, certainly this was foreshadow-
ing a long, wet, muggy, disappoint-
ing day. I couldn't have been more
right about it being wet and muggy,
but the six hour festival couldn't have
been more enjoyable.
My only true reason for attend-
ing the festival was to hear one man
play his harmonica. But I was in for
much, much more. As long as folks
had plenty of money, they could pur-
chase virtually anything. From tie-
dyed shirts to toe-rings to hats made
from hemp, the H.O.R.D.E. Festival
wasn't only a music concert, but a
traveling three-ring
circus.
Side stage
band Red Thunder
started their set
while all but 100 or
so festival-goers
were still in the
parking lot, buying
tickets or stuck in
traffic. Red Thunder
appeased their audi-
ence with their dis-
tinctive style of na-
tive American in-
strumental tunes.
As they were finish-

Jasper & The
Prodigal Suns
Everything is
Everything
Jay Myers
Staff Writer
Everything is Everything isn't
everything it could be. but that's
not to say it isn't good. On their
premiere album, Jasper & The
Prodigal Suns lay down an impres-
sive groove accompanied by flashes
of vocal brilliance. However, they
also trip over themselves on occa
sion.
It is always interesting to hear
how well rap and l(ye instrumenta-
tion play together. This band joins
the ranks of others, such as Ar-
rested Development. Spearhead.
Smokin' Suckas with Logic, G.
Love & Special Sauce, Beastie Boys
and Tribe Called Quest, who have
proved that this can be a success-
ful combination. Just as each of the
above bands aren'fc derivative of
each other, Jasper & The Prodigal
Suns have carved a niche for them-
selves by combining a touch here
and there of reggae, jazz and blues,
enough to accent the sound but not
so much that it makes the record
an unlistenable mish-mash.
Jasper first appeared on the
music scene contributing some ad-
- ditional lead vocals on G. Love &
Special Sauce's self-titled debut al-
bum. The popularity of that record
and the recommendation of G. Love

Do you want to know what sound
that is? That's the sound of a train
racing away from Seattle filled with
the music beatniks that made the
Northwest Passage and Grunge
rock cool.
Unfortunately for the Seattle
natives (actually, Issaquah, Wash.
- a convenient suburb) they missed
the train out of town and to their
dismay they may have wanted to
board, because like Seattle and
many other 'music scenes' (i.e.
Chapel Hill. North Carolina's an-
swer to the local music mecca) the
cities' popularity has come and
gone.
For a predominantly female
band (the drummer is the only
male). Clatter Bean brings a mix of

monotone and inaudible, but at the
same time they offer driving riffs
and hevy drumbeats. In other
words, twist Metallica and Hole to-
gether and you get Clatter Bean.
Although still very young in
the industry. Bean has been fortu-
nate enough to find a producer as
famous as Don Gilmore (producer
Pearl Jam's Ten album and Temple
of the Dog) and collaborate in one
of Seattle's most renowned studios.
Bad Animals (most recognized re-
cently for furnishing Neil Young
and Pearl Jam with space to record
Mirrorball).
Jlatter Bean's six-song ep,
titled Sar , has two promising
songs, "Shallow Waters" and
"Ashes Urn Opening the album is
"Shallow Waters which sets the.
mood of the whole disc. As if the
first song was any indication for
what was to come, the grunge
sounds of Seattle spewed from
Bean's guitars and drums.
"Shallow Waters" has a lot of
promise because of the direction
that it goes rhythmically: it falls
short lyrically, however, as does
"Ashes Urn
Unfortunately, there seems to
be a pattern that forms with most
of Bean's songs. Typically, with
today's women 'rage' singers
(Courtney Love. Alanis Morrisette,
etc.) the emotion of their scream-
ing vocals enhances their songs so
that we the listener can feel their
pain or anguish. However, Clatter
Bean vocalist Jennifer Parkinson's
monotone vocals detract from the
hard Soundgarden-esque sounds
that the band is trying to accom-
plish.
Another recurring problem in
Clatter Bean's work, and this may

Is it too early to declare the
Greenville music scene dead?
I mean, maybe it's a moot point
in view of the general nation-wide
malaise in the underground.
Groups barely out of their garage-
days diapers are being snatched up
by major record labels all over the
place, and a lot of once-powerful
local music scenes are drying up.
Even Chapel Hill is offering kind
of slim pickings these days, as all
the local favorites go global on us.
After all, once you're playing to an
MTV audience, what's the point in
staying home?
Minus the bands that are get-
ting booked in the majors, local
scenes these days consist mostly of
lame-ass classic rock cover bands
and yawningly earnest folk singers.
While there's a definite art to those
styles, most of the people playing
them don't seem to know it
Sure, it's great that bands like
Polvo and Superchunk are gaining
a little national attention; they de-
serve it. And even though I find
them bland beyond all description,
I don't begrudge Hootie and the
Blowfish their wild (if inexplicable)
success. But as these bands clear
out no one's showing up to take
their place.
But I digress. Greenville has
never been a musical hotspot Sure,
we've always had our fair share of
bands, and we've had some good
ones. The Earth Murchants and the
Kill Kids gave way to Henry Acro-
bat and Ella. But the record indus-
try isn't exactly beating down our
doors to book these guys.
No. our local alternative bands
are facing another, more serious
threat They have nowhere to play.
That's right. With the closing
of O'Rockefeller's, the former home
of Greenville's alty scene, many
bands are left out in the cold. And
without a venue to play, I don't see
how those bands can do anything
but call it quits.
I guess the alternative scene
Greenville has seemingly been
building these past few years is re-
ally just a bunch of posers. I mean,
if we can't even keep one measly
alternative club open, we must be
a pretty lousy group of rebel intel-
lectuals. Apparently, it was all just
a fashion show.
Maybe the Percolator better
watch out I mean, sure all those
strange-looking people claim to
enjoy poetry readings and open mic
nights. But I've seen the yawns and
looks of utter boredom on the faces
of the underground trendies. Maybe

Hollywood has certainly pro-

who inspire difficult students and
the last thing the summer of '95
seemed to need was another entry
into this overpopulated genre.
But Dangerous Minds proves
that the genre can still provide en-
tertainment as well as motivation.
The success of Dangerous Minds
can be attributed largely to
Michelle Pfeiffer.

teacher who gets railroaded into
teaching a class of intelligent but

ties and each one of her students
seems to have an attitude problem.
Johnson gets the students' at-
tention on the second day of class,
after nearly quitting on the first
day, by wearing a leather jacket and
discussing karate.
She then en-
tices them into an-
swering questions
by handing out
candy bars for cor-
rect answers. A trip
to the amusement
park and a dinner
at a fancy restau-
rant provide other
encouragements to
help motivate the
students to learn
poetry.
The film wisely
shows Johnson en-
couraging the stu-
dents to give cor-
rect answers just for the sake of
learning instead of for a reward.
Though educators disagree on
whether a reward system such as
the one Johnson employs makes
better students, there must be
something positive about it if it
works, as it does in Johnson's case.
What left me incredulous was
that the students so easily accepte i
the rewards in the first place and
then that they continued to give an-
swers when the rewards were with-
drawn.
The story of Dangerous Minds
was adapted from Johnson's mem-
oirs, My Posse Don't Do Home-
work. Thus one would expect a cer-
tain amount of realism.
But in any Hollywood film of
this sort the histrionics win out
over persistence. Instead of devel-
oping the gradual change in the
students' attitudes the film shows
several scenes
of powerful
emotion that
replace the
rocky,
gradual tran-
sition one
knows has to
occur in a real
classroom.
The
f il makers
wisely cut out
a sub-plot in-
volving a boy-
friend (Andy
Garcia). I can-
not even
imagine diluting the story more by
having a distracting romance. The
relationship between LouAnne and
several students outside the class-
room take up as much time as the
in-class time.
Though the external stories
may touch heartstrings, the inter-
nal story of the classroom is where
the real story should have been fo-
cused.
Dangerous Minds also places
the blame for much of the students'
attitude on the system itself. The
principal is made to look like an
ostrich with his head in the sand.
He insists on school policy when
The film wisely
shows Johnson
encouraging the
students to give
correct answers
just for the sake of
learning instead of
for a reward.
it's clear that Johnson's methods
are working. Rather than trying to
work with Johnson, the two educa-
tors are pitted as enemies.
This may be good for a Holly-
wood story, but it is a mistake in a
supposedly gritty and realistic tale.
And why is it that established teach-
ing methods, researched and prac-
ticed by educational experts, never
seem to work in movies about
teachers?
Pfeiffer does her best to rise
about the material. Several scenes
where emotions brim to the surface
are barely contained behind
Pfeiffer's troubled countenance.
The actress does more to convey
her feelings with a few damp eyes
(no tears, though) than some can
with wailing sobs. Pfeiffer just may
join Meryl Streep in the Oscar
nominations next year.
Dangerous Minds manages to
rise above Hollywood conventions
for a portion of the film, but too
often it gets mired down in cliches.
The hopelessly contrived ending
when Johnson wants to quit seems
unnecessary. Some executive obvi-
ously thought an over-the-top finale
was necessary instead of a nice
quiet finish.
When Dangerous Minds does
work, it works quite well. And some
lessons are given in the film that
many teachers and students would
do well to listen to. In a genre over-
flowing with cliches, one cannot
seem to hope for too much more.
On a scale of one to 10, Dan-
gerous Minds rates a six.

Mulgrew continues voyage
NEW YORK (AP) - Age-old
questions endure in the 24th cen-
' tury.
Many are raised anew by "Star
Trek: Voyager which is the fourth
"Star Trek" to boldly roam in the
vast recesses of the cosmos. The
flagship of the UPN mini-network
since its launch last January, "Voy-
ager" begins a new season tonight
at 8 p.m. EDT.
How could there be so much
square footage on those "Star
Trek" spaceships? Even with the
stripped-down USS Voyager, you
feel like you're on a Carnival
Cruise.
Why are crew members so stiff
and formal with each other? How
about once in a while a high-five, a
playful wedgie, the occasional "Yo,
Neelix, hiya doon?"
Does playing a Starfleet cap-
tain loosen an actor's grip on real-
ity?
"It's a way of life, it's a respon-
sibility, it's a role model says Kate
Mulgrew, who seems to have
merged a bit too thoroughly with
Capt. Kathryn Janeway, the first
female to command a Star Trek
spacecraft.
"Command is a given thing,
not learned, and it is part of my
, nature, part of what I am as an ac-
tor says Mulgrew. "The rest of it
I will continue to work on. And it
is the hardest work I've ever done
in my life
Surely the whole galaxy recalls
how a year ago Genevieve Bujold
signed on as the Voyager's com-
manding officer, then, two Earth-
days later, beamed out.
Mulgrew, who had done "Mrs.
Columbo" on TV and Shakespeare
and Ibsen on stage, was commis-
sioned to take over the Voyager,
soon to be stranded in a distant cor-
ner of the universe more than
70.000 light-years from home.
"You can imagine my level of
excitement says Mulgrew, trans-
formed by recollections of her first
day as the Great Bunned One.
Here she was, about to meet her
"crew played by actors "to whom
I would be exposed under intimate
circumstances for possibly the next
: five or six years of my life
"The atmosphere of expectation
was pervasive she goes on, the ca-
" dence of her voice growing more and
more pronounced. "The stakes were
now high: They must have been
, thinking, Bujold had quit, now this
one, what's she gonna do?"
"And I walked on the bridge
and they all stood up the com-
pany, the crew on deck, everybody
and they saluted me and they
said, 'Captain on board
"It was great! It was splendid! I
a saw nothing but a sea of faces, all
of which 1 now know and love and
there was hope and I think there
. was respect And we just went! It was
an 18-hour day, and it was a good
' one. And it's been like that ever
since
Mulgrew has made no secret of
how roles had dried up and she was
?uper-Obcur?

Jasper & The Prodigal Suns to earn
their own recording contract. The
rest of the band consists of bass,
drums, saxophone and steel pan,
which allows for an eclectic combi-
nation that can change from a low,
melodious, surface noise to a thun-
derous, discordant, wall of sound
The best thing this band has
going for it are its songs, though.

out so much, but their choice of
subject matter. When Jasper sends

do these songs offer wonderfully
descriptive social commentary, they
also move and groove.
Yet every band has its draw-
backs, too. For all of their playing
and songwriting talents, Jasper &
The Prodigal Suns sometimes end
up performing on top of each other,
making it difficult to hear what's
going on. Also, Jasper himself tends
to sound a little flat from time to
time which takes away from the poi-
gnancy that these songs possess.
None of these missteps happen of-
ten enough to detract from the
overall enjoyment of this record,
however.
Jasper & The Prodigal Suns
have produced a collection of tunes
that is well worth having, and hope-
fully by the time their sophomore

worked out the kinks. Also, if you

Festival is the brain-child of John Pop-
per, it is his festival and he performed
like the true heavy-weight champion
he is.
As much food as was available at
the H.O.R.D.E Chris Robinson obvi-
ously wasn't eating any of it. The
Black Crowes' lead singer looked like
a cross between Jesus and a malnour-
ished Ethiopian. The Crowes were the
headlining act, but they certainly
didn't perform like they were. Experi-
menting with using different types of
percussion, at times they looked like
a bumed-out Widespread Panic cover
band.
In the past, the H.O.R.D.E. Festi-
val has featured bands such as Phish,
the Dave Matthews Band and the
Allman Brothers. The H.O.R.D.E. Fes-
tival isn't just a concert, it's a feeling,
an atmosphere, a sense of unify within
rock music. One I'm surely glad I at-
tended, even though it rained the
entire time.

they don't like the readings at all.
Maybe they just like to be seen at the
readings. It makes them seem smart
and weird to the frat boys when they'd
really rather just be sitting somewhere
swilling beer and staring at the walls.
Unfortunately for all of us, however,
that doesn't look cool.
Sure, every alternative scene has
its posers. And yes, it's all a fashion
show on some level. But most scenes
also have some strong underpinnings.
Not here.
Greenville is a cultural wasteland.
I had hoped, despite all signs to the
contrary, that this situation was chang-
ing. 1 had hoped that all those cool-
looking people I keep seeing around
everywhere would change it. But 1
guess you really can't judge books by
their covers.

The East Carolinian
Peacock flies the
coop, will transfer

John Peacock
Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
John Peacock, a 6-foot-208
pound sophomore fullback has left
the East Carolina football team and
will be transferring to either the
University of Richmond or Central
Florida. He was starting at H-Back,
the blocking back position in the
Pirate offense. With the increased
emphasis on the passing game each
year by head coach Steve Logan, it
became evident that the fullback
would become a smaller and
smaller part of his offensive
scheme.
Eric Blanton, a senior from up-
state New York will take his place
in the lineup.
A physical player who excelled
in one on one situations, Peacock
came highly touted out of Venice,
Florida's Cardinal Mooney High
School. He led the entire state of
Florida in rushing with 1,813 yards
with 27 touchdowns as a senior and
was selected to the Florida-Georgia
All Star Came as well as the
Sarasota-Manatee High School
game in which he scored two touch-
downs. Peacock stood out at line-
backer and strong safety too, mak-
ing 347 tackles and 20 sacks in his
career.
East Carolina signed him
among some heavy competition, in-
cluding Michigan State, Purdue,
Virginia Tech and Kansas with the
promise he would play the tailback
position, not fullback.
After a strong spring practice
prior to last season in which he was
named Offensive MVP of the spring
game, he seemed set for significant
playing time behind Junior Smith
and Jerris McPhail but saw most of
his action on special teams. His best
performance was against Cincinnati
rushing for 31 yards on 10 carries.
This spring McPhail became
firmly entrenched as the starter
and freshman runners ate into
Peacock's repetitions in practice
making running backs coach and
offensive coordinator Todd Berry to
fullback academic, a move he was
very hesitant to make.
"All of my life I have played
tailback Peacock said. "I could see
myself playing fullback if I got to
run or catch the football, but I feel
like this offense doesn't need me. I
haven't seen any work at tailback
since freshman year. At fullback, my
position is being phased out so I
just didn't think I could help the
team anymore. It isn't that I mind
blocking or whatever. I'm a team
player.
"With the offense changing so
much, I really started to see it this
fall. I was the starting H-Back but
all 1 did was block and it was very

Derrek Batson, a 5-foot-9 180
pound senior wide receiver from Mi-
ami, Florida has returned to school
and the football team after sitting out
of both this spring due to a disciplin-
ary suspension. The former starter has
had an excellent
fall camp, report-
ing in great condi-
tion, showing no
signs of rust after
a six month layoff.

said. "It was kind
of awkward at
first. But, I have
been training re-
ally hard to get

The other players
on the team have made a lot of great
gains as far as lifting and running
goes. I have taken a step back so I
have to work hard and get back where
I was
Even with the time missed
Batson is one of the most impressive
physical specimens on the team. He
bench presses 345 pounds and runs
a 4.5240 yard dash. The former run-
ning back continues to maintain a fat-

sack in his career. The Pirates take on Tennessee Saturday evening.
Marketers focus on next level
free body with a lot of upper body
strength.
This blend of speed and strength
makes Batson an ideal backup to
Mitchell Galloway after starting three
games last fall. Batson is expected to
play a significant role, running inter-
mediate routes and catching short
passes. Wide receivers coach Doug
Martin has made the transition back
easier for him.
"He made it as smooth as pos-
sible for me Batson said. "He never
said 'I know you have been out so I
don't expect much He took the atti-
tude of expecting a lot from me as a
senior both mentally and physically.
He put it on me to go out there and
play well and expect a lot from my-
self. I like that kind of challenge
The challenge was certainly there
for him after a difficult sue months
which forced Batson to find work and
get himself back in school. He worked
at Empire Brushes and Vermont
American from January to June. The
working experience made him appre-
ciate even more
the opportunity
of going to school
and playing foot-
ball.
Head coach
Steve Logan was
also helpful to
Batson, staying in
contact and en-
couraging him to
stay in shape.
This encourage-
ment motivated
i n Batson through
this tough period.
He reminded him of his ability to play
more than one position and how much
the team needed his physical block-
ing presence on the perimeter of the
field.
The Sunshine State native's ca-
reer got off to a great start in 1992,
seeing action in all 11 games starting
four. He set single season freshman

Steve Gowan
Brad Nelson
Staff Writer
Director of Marketing Steve
Gowan and Assistant Marketing Direc-
tor Chip Hutchinson are an integral
part of the athletic program at ECU.
As key players on the athletics de-
partment staff, Gowan and Hutchinson
strive daily to portray ECU athletics
in a positive light, logging long hours
and enduring exhaustive travel sched-
ules to fulfill their duties. But as Gowan
and Hutchinson make readily clear,
they're here for one reason.
"We're here because of our love
for athletics said Gowan. "We were
both fortunate enough to play at the
high school level and that's really
where our interests come from. We feel
at home around people who are in ath-
letics and around athletic arenas,
whether it be football or basketball
"We enjoy watching the players
develop Hutchinson added, "espe-
cially at the college level where you
get to watch them develop both as stu-
dents and as athletes
Gowan, in his second year as di-
rector of marketing, received his
bachelor's degree in Biology from UNC-
Chapel Hill and is currently working
towards his master's degree in Busi-
ness Administration at ECU. In addi-
tion to his numerous marketing duties,
Gowan also serves as on-air anchor for
the Pirate Sports Radio Network.
"My long-term goal is to be an ath-
letic director at the Division-I level
Gowan said. "One thing about college
athletics as it continues to move for-
ward is that it really is becoming more
and more a business. Maybe years ago
the coach became the athletic direc-
tor after he retired but you don't see
that much anymore. Now it's lawyers
and business people who may have an
interest in athletics and can make de-
cisions on legalities, promotion and
marketing, fund-raising and all those
things that go into college athletics
now. It's much more specialized now
With the demands placed on his
time, pursuing a second degree isn't
easy, but Gowan understands the im-
portance of an education, and stresses
this importance to the student-athletes
at ECU.
"We discuss the importance of
education with our student-athletes
said Gowan. "A very small percentage
of individuals are going to play sports
at the next level, so education is very
important. If all else fails, you've got
an opportunity to utilize your degree.
That's our focus when we talk to our
student-athletes. One day this will end.
You've got to have something to fall
back on and that's why a degree is so
important"
Both Gowan and Hutchinson
spend a great deal of their time selling
ECU athletics to the corporate world
in the form of sponsorships. These
sponsorship packages range in price
from $7,000 for the Purple Sponsor
Package to $16,000 for the MVP Spon-
Chip Hutchinson
sor Package, and include everything
from game tickets to banners to adver-
tising in the game programs.
"The football and basketball game
programs are two ways that you can
take positive information about athlet-
ics and package it to allow corporate
involvement in terms of advertising
Gowan said.
With the growth of college athlet-
ics, Gowan maintains that sponsorship
activity will increase for ECU in the
coming years. "Sports marketing is still
a fairly new venture Gowan said.
"Some years ago we were attracting a
local group of businesses, whereas
now we're attracting regional adver-
tisers and sponsors
ECU recently signed Belk Enter-
prises, a 280-store buying group, to
a corporate sponsorship. Addition-
ally, the deal with Belk will be co-
oped by international giants Nike and
Lee Jeans.
To what does Gowan attribute
ECU'S rapid growth and develop-
ment?
"The biggest reason for our
growth has got to be our success on
the playing field said Gowan. "I
think the Peach Bowl victory in 1992
was a huge step. The Liberty Bowl
appearance last year was a continued
enhancement of the national expo-
sure. The recent ESPN contract that
was negotiated and signed which
begins next year is a definite prod-
uct of success out on the playing
field.
"From a basketball standpoint,
winning the CAA Championship in
1993 and facing UNC in the first
round on national television helped
exposure not only for basketball, but
for the entire athletic program
Another reason for ECU's con-
tinued growth is Cowan's and
Hutchinson's aggressive approach to
marketing and promotion. "We are
very aggressive in what we do said
Gowan. "Because for so many years
we had to be because of a lack of
exposure from bowl games and those
types of situations. We'll continue to
be as aggressive as we can possibly
be. When you combine aggressive
promotion and marketing with suc-
cess on the playing field, you should
realistically get to a point where
you're definitely expanding your ex-
posure
Gowan and Hutchinson are
poised to take ECU to the next level
in terms of marketing, an exciting
proposal as ECU continues its assault
on the national spotlight. Gowan is
optimistic about how far ECU can go
in this quest. "The sky is the limit.
At ECU there has been a good foun-
dation built with the staff, the facili-
ties and the scheduling Gowan said.
"Each of these elements will allow
us to take the next step to become
one of the elite programs in the coun-
try. We must continue to take care
of our business. That's our philoso-

Women's soccer coach has dual positions
Craig Perrott
Staff Writer
Neil Roberts is just what the doc-
tor ordered for the ECU women's soc-
cer program. Roberts was responsible
for initiating a women's soccer program
at Mt Olive College.
Our own women's soccer team is
only in its second year at varsity status
and coach Roberts knows what it takes
to get a soccer program on its feet
Originally from Hatburg, Pa. the
career route that Roberts has followed
has had several twists and turns on its
way to Greenville. He leceived his BS
in Physical Education from the Univer-
sity of Delaware and proceeded to get
his master's in Physical Education and
Sports Psychology at UNC-Chapel Hill.
After a positive experience as a gradu-
ate assistant with the women's team at
Chapel Hill, Roberts then went on to
become the head men's and women's
soccer coach at New Bern High School.
He then moved on to become the head
men's coach at ML Olive College before
coming to ECU.
Roberts' job description includes
not only coaching. He is dually ap-
pointed as coach and lecturer in the
School of Health and Human Perfor-
mance and more specifically the depart-
ment of Exercise and Sports Science.
Roberts will help teach EXSS 2900 and
2323 this fall.
Recruiting is also a major portion
of Roberts' job. Womeis soccer is the
fastest growing
sport in the
NCAA and con-
sequently that
has made re-
cruiting more
difficult In or-
der to be in two
places at one
time, Roberts is
aided by gradu-
ate assistant
C o 1 1 e t t e
Gilligan. Rob-
erts focuses re-
cruiting on the
N.C. area.
"I think
that we have to do well in North Caro-
lina. Financially, it's a lot easier to re-
cruit in N.C, but at the same time we
have to get into Va, Md, Pa and
N J.where there are some really nice tal-
ent pools were we can draw from Rob-
erts said.
"But 1 would really like to do well
in North Carolina, that's a goal of mine.
"As a whole the
team will be
improved from
last year. I think
having one coach
to focus on them
will be a big
factor

There are definitely players in North
Carolina that can come to a division one
school like East Carolina, be competi-
tive early in their career, and also have
a great experience playing in the CAA.
The CAA is arguably one of the top three
,�. women's soccer con-
ferences in the na-
tion
The Lady Pirates
were 2-15 last season,
1-5 in conference play.
Being a young pro-
gram, the team is go-
ing through some
natural growing
pains, but Roberts be-
lieves that the team is
able to take some
steps forward this
year.
"We like to think
that we have pro-
gressed from last year,
and are ready to make a little bit of a
move on improving last year's record and
the overall attitude about the program
he said.
Last year Scooty Carey coached
both the men's and women's soccer
teams. This year, having one coach to
concentrate on the needs of the team
and to look after fieir best interests.
should have an immediate effect on the
team.
"As a whole the team will be im-
proved from last year. I think having one
coach to focus on them will be a big fac-
tor he said. Tactically, technically and
fitness wise we have a little bit to go be-
fore we are firing on all cylinders. But
the girls have worked hard this summer,
and I think it'll pay off for them
Roberts' ultimate goal for the young
team this season is to instill confidence
in his players and gradually improve. He
doesn't want them to be concerned with
the scoreboard and the wins vs. losses,
but improving from training session to
training session and from game to game.
"Hopefully we're a better team on
Nov. 5 than we are today Roberts said.
"If we can focus on improving our game,
and improving our training level, and
improving our fitness level, then the wins
will take care of themselves
Roberts also wishes to be competi-
tive with young programs in their first
few years of existence that are on the
same situation level as East Carolina such
as second-year program Wake Forest and
first-year program Florida.
The Lady Pirates kick off the 1995
season on Sept 2 at home against Lenoir
Rhyne and will make a trip to Roberts'
old school, Mt Olive College on Oct 16th.

Earnhardt pushes Labonte over finish line

Staff Writer
In a photo finish, Terry Labonte
edged out Dale Earnhardt by one
tenth of a second to win his third
Winston Cup race of the year in the
266.5 mile Goody's 500.
After being rammed by "The In-
timidator" on the steep bank at
Bristol, Tenn Labonte skidded
across the finish line sideways end-
ing a race marred by inclimate
weather.
Earnhardt also sent Rusty
Wallace into a spin earlier in the race
leading to the first of 15 caution
flags. NASCAR delegated Earnhardt
to the rear for a restart, but "Darth
Vader" was in the lead by lap 195.
Labonte accepted Earnhardt's apol-
ogy after the race, but Wallace wasn't
so kind, shouting expletives and
throwing a water bottle in
Earnhardt's face and telling him he'll
"see him at Darlington

the tiny, half-mile mountainside track
at the Bristol International Raceway

Sunday busy day for Football program sees transition
preseason NFL cuts
Staff Reports
Despite success as the New Or-
leans Saints preseason kicker, Cary
Blanchard was one of a number of
NFL players to get the hike from
their owners.
Although Blanchard had made
all kicks inside the 50-yard line, the
Saints opted to keep kicker Chip
Lohmiller. What Blanchard couldn't
understand was why the Saints
would keep Lohmiller, who had
missed several key kicks during
their exhibition season.
Blanchard's cut from the
league was most likely overshad-
owed by that of Jim McMahon, who
was let go as the Cleveland Browns'
quarterback. Coach Bill Belichick
has placed McMahon on the
backburner until he determines
where to place injured players.
McMahon signed with the
Browns in early August as the
backup in the event that third-
round draft pick Eric Zeier did not
come through. Zeier excelled to
become number two on the Browns
depth chart behind Vinny
Testaverde.
Other players suffering cuts
were Marion Butts, who rushed for
1,225 yards with San Francisco in
1990, as well as Burt Grossman, a
hopeful 49ers pass rusher.
Kansas City Chiefs released full-
back James Saxon and placed safety
Ronnie Lott on injured reserved.

Norman's win secures
place in PGA history
&�
j
(AP) - Greg Norman sank a 66-
foot chip on the first playoff hole
Sunday, capturing the World Series
of Golf and becoming the leading
money winner in PGA Tour history.
In beating Nick Price and Billy
Mayfair, Norman won $360,000 to
raise his lifetime earnings to $9.49
million and overtake Tom Kite.
Victimized so many times when
opponents hit similar shots,
Norman's 7-iron chip gave him his
third tour victory this year. He ear-
lier won The Memorial, also in
Ohio, and the Greater Hartford
Open.
Norman closed with a 3-under-
par 67 after earlier rounds of 73,
698 and 70 to enter the playoff with
a 72-hole total of 2-under 278.
Norman had considered with-
drawing from the tournament
Thursday night after accusing play-
ing partner Mark McCumber of im-
proving his putting line on the sev-
enth hole. But Norman's wife, tour
commissioner Tim Finchem and
two business associates talked him
out of such plans.

school coach Michael Dowling to
look in to scholarships at Richmond

ther played running back and out-

Welcome to the William L Laupus Health Sciences library
The Health Sciences Library, located in the Brody
Medical Sciences Building on ECU'S West Campus,
serves as the primary information center for stu-
dents, faculty and staff in the Division of Health
Sciences and the School of Social Work. The library
has a collection of approximately 310,000 volumes
and currently subscribes to about 1,600 journals.
The HSL has a staff of 14 librarians and 27.5 sup-
port staff to serve your information needs.
A New Horizon-Hie Health
Sciences Library's Online Catalog
Horizon, the online catalog of the Health Sci-
ences Library, provides computerized access to the
book, Journal, and audiovisual holdings of the li-
brary. In addition, you can search the collection of
Joyner Library, the main academic library on ECU'S
east campus, through the Horizon catalog at the
HSL. Horizon offers many ways to find out what
the library owns. Specific items can be located us-
ing an author or title search; if you do not know the
full title of a book or journal, a keyword search can
help find the item for you. You can locate materials
by medical subject heading or by subject keyword
as well. All the items in the HSL arc catalogued us-
ing subject headings from the National Library of
Medicine (MeSH), while the Joyner collection is
catalogued using subject terms from the Library of
Congress.
The Horizon catalog lets you search selected parts
of the collection as well. If you arc interested only
in audiovisual materials, Horizon will let you limit
your search this way. You can also limit your search
to journals or books, limiting your search to the
reference collection will show you the non-circu-
Education
Outreach
Reference
lating reference materials owned by the library.
Various other limits and the ability to combine sub-
jects and keywords also assist you in narrowing
down your search.
The bookmark feature available in Horizon allows
you to compile a list of items you are interested in,
and either print it out or download it to a disk for
wordproccssing. The Horizon catalog tells you the
location of each item in the library, and indicates
whether the item is available, or its due date if it is
checked out.
Horizon offers many features to make your search
for information in the Health Sciences Library suc-
cessful. We encourage you to ask for assistance from
the librarians on duty, or attend a class on the use
of Horizon, which are offered regularly throughout
the year. For more information about classes, please
call Reference at 816-2258.
