Tragedy has surfaced once again
with the death of an ECU student
killed in an automobile accident.
Catalina (Candy) Maria Villorente
was killed on Aug. 28 while driving
to work-out near her home in Moyock.
N.C. Villorente swerved to avoid an
accident, lost control of her vehicle,
and slid into a ditch; a tractor trailing
driving behind her also swerved to
avoid the accident and jacknifed onto
her vehicle.
"She brought joy and happiness
to everyone she touched said fellow
Gamma Sigma Sigma sister Diane
Morgan. "She was always supportive
and optimistic
More than a few friends, family
and members of Gamma Sigma Sigma
sorority and Alpha Sigma Phi frater-
nity gathered last Thursday in
Portsmout, Va. to say gooodbye and
shed tears for their dear friend Candy.
"We pledged together last spring
and she was really outgoing said
Alice Murray, one of Candy's sorority
sisters. "She was the type of person
that if you met her once, you wouldn't
forget her.
"She was the sister liason in our
pledge class � she went to all of the
sisterhood meetings as well as the
pledge class meetings and she acted
as a go-between. She was good at plan-
ning, she would go out and oiganize
activities she really knew how to
get stuff done
Although Villorente was on aca-
demic probation this fall, her mother.
Maria Villorente said she had planned
to return as a sophmore next spring.
"She loved life, she never went
anywhere without a smile Maria said.
"She loved people she was aggres-

dance
Villorente said Candy, a child de-
velopment and family relations major,
loved animals, the moon and going to
the beach.
"She was funny - a little ball of

Budget cuts not as
bad as anticipated
Wendy Rountree
Assistant News Editor
After the North Carolina
House and Senate reached a com-
promise on the House bill, which
proposed a S49 million budget cut
to the entire University of North
Carolina system, state universities
no longer face huge losses. And,
ECU, which no longer faces the
loss of 46 faculty members and 25
staff positions, overall has faired
well.
Some of the cuts that have af-
fected ECU are within the School
of Medicine.
"The School
of Medicine lost
$132,v�9 of
what are called
EPA non-teach-
ing positions
Vice Chancellor
of Business Af-
fairs Richard
Brown. "They
tend to be rela-
tively high level
non-faculty posi-
tions
These posi-
tions include re-
search associ-
ates.
Also, the
university has
lost money for
equipment. ����-���� ����
"The university in total lost
about $300,000 of equipment
funds, which will have an impact
on us Brown said.
Brown said he credits area
state senators and friends of the
university system for the positive
outcome.
"Thanks to a lot of work by
the local supporters of the univer-
sity, the University of North Caro-
lina! General Administration, the
university people and our legisla-
tors who are supporters of the
university, the cuts were not as
detrimental as they could have
been. They did a lot of work to cor-
rect those cuts
Bret Kinsella, Senate commu-
nications director said that by get-
ting the House to compromise, the
Senate sent a strong signal of com-
mitment to the university system.
"Education dollars are dollars
well spent Kinsella said.
Kinsella said cuts to the uni-
versity system would not only hurt
the educational system but also
the economic systems built around
the universities. As a result, the
state would suf-
fer a great deal.
Though
Kinsella said he
hopes the fu-
ture will not
hold major cuts
for the univer-
sity system, he
cannot give any
guarantees be-
cause there are
always going to
be forces who
say the money
could be spent
elsewhere - like
for roads.

� Richard Brown, Vice

Affairs
The entrance to the
Neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit
in Pitt County Memorial Hospital
is a busy one. Doctors and nurses
hustle by, busy with their patient's
surgery schedules, blood transfu-
sions and X-Rays. Gurneys are
pushed by filled with injured people,
hurt in car accidents and other vio-
lent impacts. The looks on their
faces, even when sedated, are
etched with pain. This is no place
for the faint of heart.
Distraught relatives, friends
and basketball players crowd the
small visiting room, deeply upset
and worried. Literally, dozens of
well-wishers hug each other, cry,
pray and hope. Flowers, cards and
meals do little to console this group.
They are praying for a special
miracle, one fhat will make their
loved one whole again, ECU student
and basketball manager Jim
Calhoun, Jr.
He is holding on, listed in criti-
cal condition, paralyzed from the
top of the shoulders down. His in-
juries are multiple, including three
fractures in his fifth vertebrae, al-
most shattered, a bent spinal cord
and a CVA (cerebrovascular acci-
dent, also known as a stroke).
The stroke induced by a block-
age of one of the main arteries con-
nected to the brain stem has
Calhoun in a deep coma, unable to
talk with his parents Jim and Sandra
Calhoun or his girlfriend, ECU soft-
ball player Tonya Oxendine.
"We are still hoping for a
miracle, you always have hope
Mrs. Calhoun said. "Prayer is the
only thing we can do right now for
Jim. We don't understand why it
happened, I still find it hard to be-
lieve that it happened.
"The hardest thing to accept is
that whatever God's will is, it will
be done. Whether He chooses to
give Jim back to us or not it has
state institu-
tions. Brown said this was because
ECU usually received less funding
than these universities.
"The cuts hit different cam-
puses differently Brown said.
"The way they were applied - some
campuses took much heavier cuts
than East Carolina. At East Caro-
lina, we've been for some time
making the case that we are not
as well funded as many of our sis-

been a great 20 years. We love our
boy so much ana it just isn't fair for
this to happen to him
Fade back a few days to Sept 2,
Emerald Isle Beach, in Carteret
County, N.C. Jim and a few of his best
friends, Jason Wing and John Clark,
who work on ECU's Event Staff as
groundskeepers with Jim, are headed
for a Labor Day weekend filled with
fun and good times.
Jason has been one of Jim's best
friends since the age of 14. They spent
this summer coaching a little-league
baseball team to the playoffs. John has
only known Calhoun for a few years,
but they have become fast friends due
to a lot of joking around and working
together. Tonya, a pretty outfielder on
the softball team has been dating Jim
for more than half a year but they have
become very close,
even to the point of
discussing mar-
riage and children.
The water
seems calm earty in
the afternoon, the
tide is normal, chil-
dren and parents
play on the sandy
beach. Jim is an en-
thusiastic sort the
kind of person who
likes to be first a
fierce competitor
who was All-Con-
ference in several
sports at his home-
town Rocky Mount
Academy. He de-
cides to take a run
into the water for
a quick dip.
The water
was really strange
that day Wing
said. "It broke in
kind of funny, sort
of a dead low tide.
All of a sudden
there was a pretty
big wave and Jim
dove over the top of it He dove in at
only about a foot and a half of water.
"We didn't know anything was
wrong at first. It just looked like he
was swimming, but he kept floating
face-down in the water. John and I
his arms. We had to move him twice
because Ihe tide was washing over
him. I just couldn't believe it My
best friend was in trouble and there
was nothing I could do but cail the
paramedics
Calhoun was conscious the
whole time, and said 'I broke my
neck' several times. He was more
worried about his friends and girl-
friend than about his own condi-
tion,
"He never shed one tear
Oxendine said. "He kept saying he
would understand if I left him and
that he loved me so much and
wanted to spend the rest of his life
with me. He tried to make us feel
better, even joked with us and the
nurse. She said' vH you look good'
and he said 'I always look good.

New contractor named to Rec Center

The Salt Water Fishing Association will use funds appro-
priated last spring during the upcoming school year.
T. A. Loving, Inc. of Goldsboro
has been named as the recovery con-
tractor to complete the new Student
Recreation Center (SRC). A sched-
uling consultant has been hired. A
date for completion will should be
announced today.
The delay in completion of the
SRC is due mostly to the bankruptcy
of Lott Constructors Inc which left
the center stuck in the mud. Direc-
tor of Recreational Services, Nancy
Mize, said ECU'S previous
contractor's bankruptcy problems
were not linked to ECU, but to a
prison project they were undertak-
ing in the Dallas, Tx. area.
The SRC will have almost every-
thing but luxurious locker rooms,
saunas and steam rooms, but will
also not be crowded by non-Pirates.
"We will never sell memberships
to the Greenville community Mize
said. "The center is for the exclu-
sive use of students, faculty and
staff
And what is to become of we
students who graduate before the
center is completed? Student fees
have been paying for construction
since 1990.
"We have a recent alumni cat-
egory for all students who have paid
into the project since 1990 Mize
said. "They will be allowed to pay
the same amount as students (S240
a year) for a two year period

ECU has been able to experience
a small taste of foreign culture. The
English Language Academy (ELA)
brings students from all over the
world to participate in everyday life
at ECU.
Students who are involved in this
program are responsible for 300 hours
of class work and field trips. In years
past, ECU has had students from the
former Soviet Republics and a
Bosnian refugee. At present, students
are here from countries as far away
as Japan and Togo.
ELA did not recruit foreign stu-
dents full time until last May when
Debbie O'Neal was hired as director
of ELA. O'Neal said ECU has a small
international population on campus.
"One goal of the program and of
the chancellor is to increase the in-
ternational population and I feel that
ELA is the perfect recruiting tool

Model teaching program under construction
Jennifer Hunt
Staff Writer
ECU's successful Model Clini-
cal Teaching Program will expand
to include all elementary, middle
grade, secondary and special edu-
cation programs this year due to a
new bill that provides the program
with $385,000.
The bill introduced by State
Representative Henry Aldridge (R-
Pitt) is now part of the recently
adopted House budget. The fund-
ing will support joint training of
teachers and university faculty and
provide operating costs for a year-
long student internship which will
be selected on a competitive basis
from schools in a 17-county teach-
ing network in eastern North Caro-
lina.
"I have worked extremely hard
to get this important funding mea-
sure into the House budget In a
time of budget cutting and reduc-
ing government, it is still important
to fund necessary programs and I
know the training of educators is
vital to our future" Aldridge said.
Eventually, everyone who
graduates with a teaching degree
from ECU will have had one full
year of student teaching instead of
only 10 weeks. Educators call this
innovative new system "clinical
teaching Over the past seven
years ECU has tried, tested and
perfected clinical teaching through
its Model Clinical Teaching Pro-
gram (MCTP). Today, with recogni-
tion and awards from national edu-
cation groups, the ECU program is
leading the wave of progress to im-
prove teaching in the United States.
These successes are due in part
to the way the clinical program con-
TlkeyVe Bacls
The Greatest Shrimp Around
trasts with traditional student
teaching. Instead of spending a few
weeks a semester in a public school
classroom, the clinical teaching in-
terns spend a year working with
school children. In the process, the
interns receive instruction and cri-
tique from specially trained teach-
ers. ECU professors also work
closely with the school teachers
and interns.
"The two critical factors we
found in our research, over and
over were that a student needs
more time in the classrooms and
we also need well-prepared, well-
trained clinical teachers to support
and help our young teachers grow
professionally said Betty
Beacham, MCTP director.
Supported with state funding
and guided by a directive from the
North Carolina legislature to study
avenues to improve teacher educa-
tion in North Carolina, ECU
launched the program in 1987. The
number of students involved in the
new program remains small in com-
parison to the other education ma-
jors following the traditional stu-
dent teaching approach that has
been here and on other campuses
for decades.
Charles Coble, dean of ECU's
School of Education, said ECU has
already modified its existing train-
ing program to incorporate many
of the model program's major com-
ponents. He said Pamalee Hawk, di-
rector of Teacher Education, is
leading a complete restructuring of
Teacher Education, heavily influ-
enced by the model program, which
will be implemented during the
next two years.
ECU officials have discovered
a higher rate of teacher retention
due to clinical teaching. A recent
study of the program showed that
97 percent of the MCTP graduates
have remained in teaching after five
years. The national average is less
than 60 percent. The program
makes students and educators feel
much more involved in the learn-
ing process. "We learn from the
Clinical Teachers and they learn
from us said Katherine Misulis, a
member of the ECU Education fac-
ulty.
ECU will transform its entire
Teacher Education program into
clinical teaching in 1996. Under the
program, students will go through
a clinical pre-professional semester
followed by a full semester of stu-
dent teaching.
"I think that within the next
two to five years we are going to
see this program lead the way to a
full blown professional school net-
work of teaching centers in eastern
North Carolina Beacham said.
She said the network system
will do a much more effective job
of linking universities with the pub-
lic schools and will emphasize the
professional growth of everyone in-
volved in the school environment.
This is important, she said, because
"we are now beginning to realize
that schools of education, teacher
preparation programs, public
schools and communities must
work together in helping teachers
prepare kids for the 21st century

ter institutions, and based on the
formula that was used in distrib-
uting the cuts, that seems to prove
itself out.
"So, we did not take nearly as
bad cuts as UNC-Chapel Hill or
N.C. State or even some of the
other schools
For example, Brown said while
ECU's academic affairs administra-
tion took no cuts in non-teaching
EPA. not including the School of
Medicine, N.C. State University-
had $638,000 in cuts and UNC-
Chapel Hill had S490.000 in cuts
to their academic affairs adminis
trations. Even UNC-Creensboro
lost $101,000.
"So, we were treated fairly in
the budget cuts, and other schools
probably were also treated fairly.
But, their funding levels were bet-
ter than ours, so they took bigger
cuts
ECU's budget actually consists
of the following three components:
the continuation budget, the ex-
pansion budget and the capital
budget.
"The first is called the con-
tinuation budget Brown said,
it's the general operating budget
of the university. It's basically
funding for running the facilities
and paying the faculty and staff
Though none of the budget's
money was touched, some in-
creases were built into the continu-
ation budget for such things as
changes in employee benefits and
telephone and postage costs.
These expenses increase each year
and include library books and jour-
nals.
'To understand where we are
this fall, you have to go back two
years said Dr. Kenneth Marks, di-
rector of Joyner Library. "Two
years ago all of the campuses in the
UNC system asked for additional
money for acquisitions, the pur-
chase of books and journals. The
money that was asked for was for
the continuing budget. Instead of
an appropriation that added it on
a continuing basis to the budget,
the legislature appropriated one-
time non-reoccurring money.
When they did that, they also
did not appropriate all the money
that was asked for. Now. when you
get one-time money, it's not wise
to spend it on something that is
going to continue to come back as
a cost year after year after year
Two years ago. the library re-
ceived $300,000 for acquisition.
Last year, the amount was reduced
to $144,000. Since library admin-
istrators must prepare budgets a
year ahead of time this caused prob-
lems
in January 1995, we began to
get forecasts for what would hap-
pen to journal costs for '96 Marks
said. "The forecasts indicated that
costs for journals would be likely
to go up on average - 13.8 percent.
So, as we looked at preparing the
budget for '95'96, we had to an-
ticipate that we would experience
that kind of price increase.
"So, when you combine the
loss of $144,000 plus the projected
price increase of 13.8 percent,
which in the case of our journal
collection would translate to ap-
proximately $150,000 to $160,000.
That gave us the figure of $300,000
that we were going to be short
As a result, library administra-
tors went to the academic depart-
ments last spring "to identify
$300,000 worth of journals we (the
library) could cancel
"We didn't like to take that
message to the faculty, and the fac-
ulty certainly didn't like to hear it
Marks said. "Canceling $300,000
worth of journals would be equiva-
lent to canceling about 25 percent
of our journal collection. It would
have been a devastating cut
Twenty-five percent of the col-
lection would equal about 1,200
journals.
After the legislature settled on
this year's budget, the UNC system
libraries received the additional
continuing moneys to the continu-
ing budget. However, the libraries
requested a 9.9 percent increase,
and the legislature responded with
a 4.4 percent increase.
Though he considers the addi-
tion to the continuing budget "an
enormous blessing Marks said the
addition of $165,000 did not cover
the expected budget amount of
$300,000.
"The chancellor and others in
the university administration made
a commitment that they would find
the remaining funds that were
needed to help the library avoid
having to cancel journals for this
year and that has really made the
difference Marks said.
Even so, library administrators,
staff and the academic units in the
division of academic affairs have
been studying which journals must
be on campus and which journals
faculty and students could get
through "document delivery
Document delivery is a new name
for inter-library loan.
In the university's expansion
budget, state libraries are receiving
an one-time increase for library
books.
"Expansion means it is addi-
tional, above and beyond the con-
tinuation budget that keeps this
running basically the same as is did
last year Brown said.
The capital budget is for build-
ings and facilities.
While the School of Medicine
lost EPAs from the continuation
budget, it is seeking funding in the
capital budget for new buildings tor
a life sciences addition and a sci-
ence laboratories and technology
building.
"The one major item that we
are struggling for out of the capi-
tal budget is the remainder of the
funds for the Life Sciences Build-
ing Brown said. "We need about
$7 million more to fund the con-
struction of that facility
Brown said the request has
been sent in, and it is up to the leg-
islature to decide whkh projects it
will fund. The university is only one
type of state institution that asks
for construction funds.

The East Carolinian
Our View
For those of you looking forward to working out in the
new recreation center, or cracking the books in the newly
renovated and expanded library this year, we've got some
bad news - you may not be the lucky user of these facili-
ties.
Chancellor Eakin said Tuesday that the recreation cen-
ter, originally scheduled to open in late November, is now
some five months behind schedule. Phase one of the li-
brary construction is also behind by about five weeks. Al-
though Eakin said in the past the library's contractor J.H.
Hudson was able to make up lost time, he doubts they will
be able to do so again.
The rec center's original contractor, Lott Construction
Co Inc filed for bankruptcy this summer. Since that time,
T. A. Loving Co. has taken over the project. J.H. Hudson is
expected to complete phase one of the library and then
turn the project over to a new contractor. At that point,
J.H. Hudson will work on small scale projects.
Eakin agrees having the two projects delayed simulta-
neously is a frustrating coincidence, even when counting
on the possibility of schedule slippage.
So we, the ones dishing out $48 per semester for the
recreation center's debt fund, have a right to be angry. But,
what we must keep in mind is that someone before us paid
for the facilities we are using today, such as the original
library and Mendenhall Student Center. Chances are very
likely, unless your college career has spanned several de-
cades, that you didn't fund those projects.
In order for East Carolina University to continue to strive
for recognition in the ranks with other state schools, we
must continue to build and develop our institution.
Although it is frustrating to pay for something we won't
use, it's an inevitable part of paying college tuition. We
hear there are plans to allow alumni to use the rec center,
but hopefully by that time we'll all have full time jobs with
companies who have their own recreation centers.
Both of the
university's
major
projects are
behind
schedule.
Although it's
a rare
coincidence,
it is
something we
have no
choice over.
Year of the Dolphins
Well pigskin patriots we have
waited long, hard, and finally made
it. Baseball season is finally over.
Those of us who still have a 1983
Baltimore Orioles American League
championship pennant saw what we
were waiting to see last night Cal
Ripken Jr. became professional sports'
all time greatest iron man. Now that
all that is over with, it's time for
America's game of choice: football.
What about figure skating you
ask? Well as of last year the sport of
football has gained control of the
sports' popularity channel changing
wars by a whopping four percent
The second question you have to
ask is: What do we have to look for-
ward to?Even if it wasn't your sec-
ond question pretend, because it's the
lead into my topic.) The year of the
Miami Dolphins.
My first argument is that of moral
obligation. I have been waiting for as
long as I can remember for the most
likely candidate for the Hall of Fame
still playing the game, Dan Marino,
to win a Super Bowl.
The second reason is plain and
simple they bought more talent than
anyone else. They spent a grand total
of $12.5 million in the off season on
signing veteran free agents and re-
structuring their own veteran's old
contracts. In spending more money
than any other team they brought in
some of the best the league has to
offer.
By giving Dan Marino the tal-

ented hands of Gary Clark, Ricky
Sanders, Irving Fryar and Randal Hill
on the wideout positions, Parmalee
and Kirby behind him, and getting to
hide behind All-Pro tackle Richmond
Webb tight end Eric Green, how can
the man with the quickest release go
wrong?
As we all know, offense only
scores points, defense wins ball games.
It's alot easier to win ball games when
you have Jeff Cross, Trace Armstrong
and Marco Coleman at the ends. Tim
Bowens and Steve Emtman will be
playing tackle. Why not throw in
Bryan Cox in at linebacker and Troy
Vincent at comerback just to be sure?
What is all this talent without a
coach? Okay, give Don Shula the reins.
He should be able to handle the task
if the title of winningest coach of all
time has any credibility.
The key question facing the Dol-
phins is who do they have to beat
The best teams in the AFC are in their
division. By winning the AFC East
they have beaten the best the Confer-
ence has to offer.
Winning the AFC Title is half the
fight The rest of the battle is in beat-
ing the greatest team in the history
of organized sports: the Washington
Redskins. But let's say that something
crazy happens (such as a bunch of
militant Native Americans, bent on
political correctness, decide to exact
some measure of revenge,) and the
Hogs don't make the playoffs. The
likely alternate would be the San Fran-
cisco 49ers.
The Dolphins will win for two
reasons. The first is that the odds of
winning back to back championships
is about 5-1. The second reason is
economic.
When a team wins a Super Bowl
then the players' net worth goes up.
This salary inflation is affected by the
fact that inflation is higher than the
league salary cap. Thus by inflation
the team is no longer able to keep
the same number of quality backup
players and when the regular start-
ers get hurt, the replacements can't
get the job done.
By January the Niners' low de-
fensive depth won't allow them to
keep up with injury or Miami.
PS. I'll go back to writing about
the problems facing American society
next week.
Letters to the Editor
To The Editor:
This football season they have
done it again! A soda like Pepsi,
Coke or Mountain Dew will cost
you, the avid ECU Pirate football
fan 50 cents more this year than it
did the past four football seasons.
Now, starting with the game on
Sept. 16, you will be paying two
bucks for a soda. The $1.50 selling
price per soda had been in effect
since the record smashing 1991
peach bowl season until the end of
the 1994 "whatever Bowl that was
season
The sad thing about it is, that
we the concessionaires, who sell the
drinks at your football games get
nothing, zero, zilch, out of the 50
cent increase in the contract offered
us by the East Carolina Pirates Foot-
ball Concessions Office of the Ath-
letic Department. Is that fair? They
get 50 cents more per soda sold and
we get nothing.
They, the management, can do
better. I wrote about this very same
subject back in 1990, and my wise
advice went not unheeded. The only
difference today is, we want a fair
contract of buying and selling prices
now, that is to sav, this year, in 1995,
not "wait till next year when things
may be more slack That was done
in the past, but now it's high time
for them to get real, and get a life,
by giving us out fair share.
From the new 50 cent increase
in price, the football concessions
managers need to give us five cents
to add to our current commission
on sales. Everyone, worker and capi-
talist master alike, should receive
their fair share of the wealth of our
great nation.

Avoid stress, it sucks
Are you stressed out yet? No?
Well, give it a couple of weeks then,
because folks, this semester is up and
running, with or without you, and
before too long, if you're really seri-
ous about doing well here in school,
the old demand is likely to start ex-
ceeding the supply (as they like to say
in Economics 1000, which I failed, by
the way. I got lost right after the sup-
ply and demand' part). How do you
tend to handle stress?
Do you fiercely forge ahead, dar-
ing this life to try and beat you down?
Or are you like me and, at the first
indication of stress, curl up in the fe-
tal position under a bed or desk some-
where and mumble nursery rhymes
until it all goes away? People handle
stress in different ways, some good,
some bad and some people just can't
handle it at all. Well, they're gonna'
lose.
Stress itself, its rotten self, is just
a part of life, and an important part
too, as any two-bit shrink will be quick
to tell you. It's how you choose to look
at stress and how you handle it that
makes all the difference in the world.
One important thing to realize, I
think, is that stress is here to stay,
like your fat alcoholic uncle, and it's
not going to get any better as time
goes by. College is not a place where
it's just stressful for certain periods
of time and then the real world will
be all smooth sailing.
College, among other things, is
a training ground for stress. During
your time here you should be train-
ing yourself how to handle being
stressed out over-burdened, behind
deadlines and under the gun, because,
unfortunately, that's just life. Why do
you think everyone out there in the
real world is dropping dead from heart
attacks by age 40? From smoking?
Well, yeah, (smokers: please send all

death threats and bitchy letters di-
rectly to my editor) but mainly from
stress, or from their inability to handle
it
Now, I know last week I wrote
that procrastination, which breeds
stress like a fruit fly, was a good thing.
However, that article was written un-
der the influence of one of my many
multiple personalities (Ruby, the
transvestite mud wrestler - catch my
act at the Silver Bullet on Sunday
nights). So just disregard it. Procras-
tination is therefore NOT good, but
we as a free nation are genetically in-
clined to procrastinate, as it is our
God-given right as Americans, and we
earned it again when we beat the Japa-
nese back in '45. Procrastination,
among many other things, like our
bosses, only serves to make life so
much more stressful. So if you're go-
ing to do it just accept the conse-
quences.
So we've established that stress
will always be with us (and that I ob-
viously had no outline for this article).
Now let's think of how to deal with it.
Because, after all, if, like myself, you
ever make it to graduate school you'd
better have some kind of plan for deal-
ing with it or you'll soon end up a lip
strumming idiot.
My advice is to just take life, and
stress, as it comes. Set realistic dead-
lines (and emergency procedures) for
getting things done, not just for this
week, but for this semester and year
as well. And expect small failures. Like
Economics 1000, they will happen.
Don't be too hard on yourself (or too
easy, for that matter. Screwing around
has its place - don't make a career out
of it. 1 mean, why do you think all
those great philosophers of Ancient
Greece were walking around barefoot
and in raggedy sheets? Because all
they ever did was sit around philoso-
phizing, or at least that's my theory.
Get a job, Plato!).
So get serious. You want to go to
med. school, or be a rocket scientist?
Fine, find out what you have to do
and then plan to DO it,Get serious
about what needs to be done, but also
about taking care of yourself, mentally
and physically, while you do it, be-
cause stress will break you down if
you don't.
You see, life is, or should be, a
fine balance between stress and relax-
ation, working hard and getting it
done and taking care of the old brain
cells and body. Don't make a hydro-
gen bomb out of a firecracker.
When things get ugly or go
wrong, take a breather, take another
look at those priorities, and if you're
still in the game then get up off your
ass and take another swing. But en-
joy a few sunsets when you can too,
because each one is different, and
whether you're completely stressed
out here in school or digging ditches
for a living at home, life is going to go
by just as fast so try your best to make
the most of it Don't screw it all up.
but don't take all this crap too seri-
ously either.
center of American life
Here's the story of the ECU stu-
dents, who sit up and watch way too
much TV (to be sung to Brady Bunch
theme). Yes, this is about the abuse
of TV.
TV has taken over the lives of just
about every person who lives in this
country. You can find TVs everywhere
you go. In my house alone, we have
six, count them, six TVs. Now, that is
way too many to have.
One should be sufficient per
household. If you can recall back
when the idea of a television set was
first introduced, people were skepti-
cal about this new technology. It was
believed that this contraption was
only for the rich. Well, everyone has
them now.
It's like a drug; once you start
watching, you can not stop. Let's be
honest who can sing the entire Brady
Bunch theme? I'd be willing to bet
that just about all of us can. That's
just my point people watch so much
TV that the words and tunes become
edged into our brains.
Television commercials are even
worse. For instance, if I were to say,
"They're Great what first comes to
your mind? If you said Tony the Tiger
or Frosted Flakes, then you prove my
point even more.
That is what is so terrible about
Brian Burns
Opinion Columnist
Don't let TV
rot your
brain; do
something
intellectual.
TV people sit around and watch it way
too much. In fact, households are set
up around the TV. Next time you go
home, check and see if there is some
kind of furniture formation around
your TV. Odds are that there is some
kind of a U-shaped organization to this
display. I admit, I have my couch set
up around my TV. It's a habit that we
are accustomed to.
Kids nowadays are being brought
up on television. There are stations
specifically set up for kids (i.e. Nickel-
odeon). Instead of these kids going
outside and having fun, their eyes are
glued to the boob tube. These kids
do not learn that there is a whole
world just outside their door.
There are ways to avoid being a
couch potato though. For instance,
you can go outside and for a nice walk.
Perhaps you can catch up on that
book that you have been meaning to
read. Or even better, dare I say these
words, you could study!
Oh no, study? Yes, that long past
tradition of reading the materials that
you are supposed to know for your
classes the next day.
The television set is supposed to
be a good way to spend some extra
time. If you notice, I emphasized ex-
tra. That is just what I mean. Don't
let TV rot your brain; do something
intellectual. A good movie is great
once in a whi'e, but do not take up
the time you should be doing more
important things with TV time.
I will admit before anyone else,
that TV can be great for learning. I
too grew up with "Mr. Roger's Neigh-
borhood" and "Sesame Street" I also
however, went outside, went bike
riding or went to the playground.
Television has become part of our
lives whether we like it or not We can
do something about it. We can take
those television sets and put them in
the corner of our rooms. Put some
books or magazines on the table and
enjoy a good story!

It's time for the 1995 Writers

This week's topic:
Superhero secret
Identities
Here are the answers to
Tuesday's quiz:
1. The Mighty Thor, Norse god
of thunder, once went by the hu-
man name Donald Blake, a New
York City doctor. Blake was sup-
posedly killed, and Thor briefly
took on the identity of Sigurd
Jarlson, a construction worker.
Such is the lot of a pagan god in
today's recessive economy.
2. Bucky, sidekick to the pa-
triotic Captain America, was origi-
nally a young man named Bucky
Barnes, a US Army mascot adopted
by Captain America's combat pla-
toon in World War II (not the best
of secret I.Ds, but it was war time).
Barnes was killed in action at the
end of the war.
In the 1950s, a Commie-bash-
ing Captain America and Bucky
were created by the US govern-
ment This Bucky was named Jack
Norris, and his occupation was be-
ing Bucky.
Later, young Rick Jones (side-
kick to the Hulk) became Bucky as
welL
3. The Sandman, who fought
crime in a gas mask and fedora, was
in reality millionaire industrialist
Wesley Dodds.
4. Green Lantern, who first ap-
peared in the 1940s, was originally
radio journalist Alan Scott He was
followed 20 years later by test pilot
Hal Jordan. Other Green Lanterns
include architect John Stewart,
high school gym teacher Guy
Gardner and the unemployed Kyle
Raynor.
5. The Flash has also been sev-
eral people. In the '40s, he was Jay
Garrick, who is now retired. In the
'60s, police chemist Barry Allen be-
came the fastest man alive. After
Allen's death in the '80s, Wally
West (formerly known as Kid Flash)
took over. West has held several oc-
cupations, but is (for the most part)
independently wealthy.
6. The Tick is an escapee from
a mental institution. He has no se-
cret identity, although he once
posed as Mr. Ned, the new cross-
word puzzle guy for a great metro-
politan newspaper. Only his hyp-
notic tie saved his identity (he went
to work in-costume).
7. The Human Torch of the
1940s was an android who went by
the name John Smith (gosh, those
'40s guys were clever!).
In the '60s, Smith long forgot-
ten, Johnny Storm became the
Human Torch as a member of the
Fantastic Four (which is his only
occupation).
8. The Flaming Carrot has a se-
cret identity, but not even his read-
ers know what it is; he never takes
his costume (a big flaming foam
rubber carrot mask) off. We do know
that he has speaker in his chest

actress Isabella Rossolini. Though
he has no job, Flaming Carrot occu-
pies his spare time by drinking and
hanging out with teenage floozies!
books of poetry, including She Had
Some Horses, In Mad Love and War,
Secrets From the Center of the
World, and The Woman Who Fell
from the Sky. An anthology of Na-
tive women's writing, Reinventing
the Enemy's Language, is also in the
works.
Harjo has already won countless
awards including the Josephine Miles
Award for Excellence in Literature,
the William Carlos Williams Award,
the American Book Award and the
American Indian Distinguished
Achievement Award. Besides having
an inclination towards poetry, she is
also a dramatic screenwriter and she
plays saxophone in her own band,
Poetic Justice.
For Harjo, writing is a means of
survival. "1 don't believe I would be
alive today if it hadn't been for writ-
ing she said. "There were times
when I was conscious of holding on
to a pen, and writing the words, pain-
ful and from the gut, to keep from
letting go of it all. Now, this was when
I was much younger, and full of self-
hatred. Writing helped me give voice
to turn around a terrible silence that
was killing me
Her often intensely personal po-
etry is filled with varied images that
are transformed by the magic Joy
Harjo finds in life. "I'm after the mys-
tery behind the obvious she said
She writes of violence and pain, but
also of love and beauty. "I was raised
as an Indian child in America and
have to deal with a very violent his-
tory. But ultimately I work for rec-
ognition of the amazing world we live

Somewhere out in the far
reaches of space, there's a TV stu-
dio inhabited by a super hero who's
gone off the deep end. Holding an
assortment of evil bad guys pris-
oner, this champion of justice
hopes to rehabilitate them through
the magic of television.
This is the premise of "Space
Ghost Coast-to-Coast the world's
first cartoon talk show. Every week,
1960s Saturday morning cartoon
hero Space Ghost interviews
guests, cracks strange jokes, and
banters with his staff of super vil-
lains. Airing on the cable Cartoon
Network, "Coast-to-Coast" has been
a wild success; its quirky humor
winning over both viewers and crit-
ics.
Knowing a good thing when he
sees it, Cartoon Network big shot
Ted Turner decided to make a spin-
off. And so was born "Cartoon
Planet which is basically "Coast-
to-Coast" with cartoons instead of
in-studio guests.
If you haven't seen it, dear God
people, get to a TV immediately (or
at least your next free weekday af-
ternoon at 3:05). This is TV of the
bizarre, complete non sequetur hu-
mor from Dimension X. Basically
it's Space Ghost hosting an hour
of old cartoons, a formula that
should be familiar to anyone who
watched a local kids' cartoon show
growing up.
The cartoons are mostly stan-
dard fare (Droopy, Bugs Bunny,
Tom and Jerry), but occasionally
you'll get a bizarre gem like the
Herculoids or, even better, a new
cartoon creation like the Power
Puff Girls. Also exciting is getting
to see an old Space Ghost cartoon,
which our hero introduces as a
"home movie
And speaking of our hero No
matter how crazed your local kids'
show host seemed, I'm betting he
looks downright straight laced next

tion that there really is a screw

head, adding a mildly uncomfort-

Tueliu? &itic&
Desperado
is a mythic
masterpiece
Dale Williamson
Staff Writer
It's amazing what a little money
and a lot of talent can produce. This
summer bored moviegoers with
bloated, over-budget action films such
as Die Hard With a Vengeance and
Judge Dredd. It seemed as if a genre
had died a hard death.
Suddenly at summer's end, in
swoops Robert Rodriguez and Anto-
nio Banderas with their collaboration
Desperado to save the day. Going
against Hollywood's philosophy that
bigger is better, the youthful
Rodriguez writes, directs and pro-
duces this year's best action feast on
a meager (by Hollywood's standards)
seven million dollars. The result is a
tightly structured, quickly paced, and
intensely fun masterpiece.
Acting somewhat as a sequel to
Rodriguez's independent wonder E
Mariachi (made for $7,000 ), Des-
perado features Antonio Banderas as
the mythic Mariachi marauder who
carries a guitar case filled with an
arsenal of destruction. When the film
opens with Steve Buscemi narrating
a tale about the Mariachi, it becomes
obvious that Rodriguez is playing with
the idea of a Mexican myth. This is
no ordinary guitar-playing fool. This
a superhero without a cape, a Mexi-
can James Bond if you will.
As the nameless hero, Banderas
digs into the part he was born to play.
He looks great with long, black hair
dangling around his even blacker eyes.
And watch out when he's forced into
action.
Banderas does a wonderful job
of giving his mariachi character the
edge he needs. He's cool and calm and
at the same time manic and obsessed.
In a hilarious scene where Banderas
and a thug frantically dig through a
pile of empty guns in search of a
loaded one, Banderas illustrates how
even a nervous hero can be a menac-
ing one.
The mariachi's obsession centers
around his desire to kill Joquim De
Almeida, the man responsible for the
death of his lover and the wounding
of his guitar playing hand. However,
Banderas learns the possibilities of
new love when he is joined by the
seductive Salma Hayek, who happens
to be somewhat involved with De
Almeida.
Rodriguez does play off other
action films, including his own El
Mariachi, but he pushes the whole
idea of the action genre over the edge.
Don't expect realism here. Realism
would only take away from the fun.
Plenty of action films have had the
hero dodging hundreds of bullets and
leaping off buildings with gun in hand,
but few have been as masterfully
handled as Rodriguez's gem.
Maybe the limited budget forced
Rodriguez to take creative risks, or
maybe Rodriguez is just a bit more
Desperado is
a Hollywood
hack job
Ike Shibley
Senior Writer
See UP page 10
Desperado, a new film by Roger
Rodriguez, provides ample evidence
that bigger does not necessarily mean
better. Rodriguez, who won acclaim
for his 1992 film El Mariachi (which
was shot for $7,000), was wooed by
Hollywood to make a film with a tre-
mendously larger budget. But that
budget, along with a Hollywood men-
tality, dooms Desperado completely.
El Mariachi was an exercise in
minimalism. The film was shot within
a two block area on a shoestring bud-
get with no-name actors. The storyline
gave only the briefest hints as to the
identity of the title character. The vio-
lence was carefully controlled and
used for maximum impact Rodriguez
created an atmosphere that perme-
ated every scene. Much like a writer
should do in a short story, Rodriguez
set the haunting, desolate mood with
his opening sentence (scene) and
maintained that same tone through-
out the story (film).
The dream sequences that appear
intermittently in El Mariachi defy
easy interpretation. More than an at-
tempt to explore the main character's
psyche, the dreams serve to perpetu-
ate the eerie ambiance of the film. The
dreams also foreshadow the film's
tragic ending.
The end of Desperado is only the
beginning of its problems. The
Rodriguez that made El Mariachi had
the integrity to tell his story the way
he deemed appropriate; it had an un-
happy ending. The Rodriguez of Des-
perado succumbs to the Hollywood
mentality of sending the audience
home happy: bad guys killed, hero
gets girl.
Constantly comparing Desperado
to El Mariachi may seem unfair and
if Desperado had not been a sequel
to the earlier film, I would agree. But
when a filmmaker opts to make a se-
quel he must be willing to accept the
harsh light of interrogation as to why
he altered so much in his follow-up
film when the original worked well.
Instead of a short, evocatively moody
tale of tragic love, Rodriguez filmed
Desperado as comic book story with
a soap opera plot.
One of the most tragic mistakes
in Desperado is replacing Carlos
Gallardo, the original Mariachv with
Antonio Banderas. Though Banderas
does a respectable job, his presence
is distracting when one has already
envisioned Gallardo as the main char-
acter. Especially distracting is when
Gallardo makes a cameo as one of the
Mariachi's friends in one of the most
idiotic sequences of the film (which
involves a guitar case that launches
rockets!).
Rodriguez's only goal in Des-
perado seems to be to send indiscrimi-
nating viewers home smugly satisfied.
He fills his film with so much violence

Cops and comedy dominate Fall TV
NEW YORK (AP) - Lots of
"Friends" clones are in store for the
1995-96 season.
A secondary trend is paranoia,
with newcomers "Nowhere Man
"Strange Luck" and "American
Gothic" joining "The X-Files" to
warn that you better not believe in
anything or anybody.
In the next few weeks, you've
got 42 other new prime time net-
work series to wade through. On no
fewer than six networks, with UPN
4nd The WB each kicking off their
first full season.

hit "Friends many of the freshman

tics:
You'll find that young singles
are looking for love as maybe never

Perfect for instance).

thing from lost love to drug addiction.
Fig Dish sounds like a bland, yet
obscure, combination of Soul Asylum
and the Replacements with a dash of
disgruntled attitude compliments of
Social Distortion.
- As far as musical originality goes,
Fig Dish has none. Like the band
members said to one another, "Hey
guys, I've got this really original idea:
we'll bite off everyone else's styles and
we're bound to be a hit" The band is
not bad or untalented; they just sound
like everyone else.
However, That's What Love
Songs Often Do is not without its few
good points. The third track, "Seeds
showcases a catchy chorus and an
upbeat tempo, with several nifty
power chord changes that actually
keeps this release from receiving a
subterranean rating.
On the seventh cut, "Quiet Storm
King the lead vocals sound exactly
like those of Social Distortion
frontman Mike Ness. Add into the
song simplistic power chords and sty-
listic aggression and "Ladies and
gentlemen, Fig Dish, a Social Distor-
tion cover band
Overall, the debut from this Chi-
cago band is listenable, yet bland. It
has moments of spark, but it's cer-
tainly not a CD that will make the last-
ing impact on listeners that bands so
often desire. Let's just say that I
wouldn't recommend operating heavy
machinery while listening to That's

Street" among them).
Among the few new sitcoms
where a man and woman are mar-
ried and living under one roof, one
of them depicts a marriage of con-
venience ("Ned and Stacey") and an-
other ("Bless This House") dwells on
the riotous domestic bliss of none
other than Cathy Moriarty and An-
drew (formerly "the Diceman") Clay.
And there's one other tiresome
trend: If your TV is tuned to a
sitcom, you're all too likely to en-
counter breast jokes, breast insults
and breast references of all kinds.
Here's one from "The Pursuit
of Happiness
"It's so hot outside cracks one
character, "I could steam an arti-
choke in my bra
"Well, just so you know an-
other character fires back, "I've got

You've heard "an apple a day

know that four hours of exercise
can help keep breast cancer away?
According to a report pub-
lished in the Journal of the Na-
tional Cancer Institute, four hours
of aerobic exercise a week can de-
crease the risk of breast cancer by
60 percent
Researchers believe that exer-
cise may decrease both estrogen
and progesterone (hormones pro-
duced by the ovary) in a woman's
body, and decrease risk of breast
cancer.

About 180,000 women are di-

Some risks cannot be changed,
such as family history of breast can-
cer. But there are other things you
can do to cut down your risk.
� If you are overweight, talk
to your doctor or nutritionist. You
do not have to try to lose weight

� Decrease fat and increase fi-

� Exercise at least three to four
times a week.
� And last, but not least, per-
form a monthly breast exam. The
best time to do it is one week after
your normal period.
Most breast cancer is first de-
tected by women who do this im-
portant monthly exam.

with only a little new material thrown

Still, it's television magic, and

that even the most jaded John Woo
fan will have his mental violence cen-
ter titillated. Though the violence it-
self is adroitly choreographed (al-
though Rodriguez has much learn-
ing to do from Woo), the feats of the
Mariachi attain mythical proportions
and jolt the viewer into a reactive
stance.
"That just can't happen the
viewer will think. The Mariachi jumps
backward across rooftops, falls sev-
eral stories, lands on his back, then
quickly jumps up to shoot some more
villains. In another equally prepos-
terous scene the Mariachi dances
across a bar while men with machine
guns fire all around him without leav-
ing so much as a scratch on the hero.
Yet Rodriguez shoots several
scenes to show the Mariachi's vulner-
ability. One tediously long sequence
has his new girlfriend (Salma Hayek)
pulling out a bullet. Another excru-
ciating - in every sense of the word
- scene has the same woman treat-
ing stab wounds. This vulnerability
is inconsistent with the earlier scenes
and thus detracts from the feel of
the film.
One especially annoying scene in
Desperado involves a cameo by
Quentin Tarrantino. This scene, in
which Tarrantino's character tells a
tired joke, is so hopelessly out of
place and so badly mangled by
Tarrantino that I suggest a morato-
rium be placed on Tarrantino's act-
ing. Isn't he busy enough writing and
directing?
Desperado is easily one of the
biggest cinematic disappointments
this year. The Rodriguez who seemed
like a promising talent in El Mariachi
now seems like a one-hit wonder.
How does Hollywood continually
ruin talented people? I suppose the
allure of big money proves too entic-
ing for young filmmakers. Unfortu-
nately, in accepting the cash, a film-
maker usually accepts the studio
heads' all too keen sense of commer-
cialism which can ruin many a prom-
ising work of art
On a scale of one to 10, Des-
perado rates a four.
talented than most other action di-
rectors, but Desperado is just sim-
ply a beautiful film to watch. The
camera makes love to the actors as
it swoops around the tightly choreo-
graphed action. The film seems to
capture the heat and sweat of the
Mexican wasteland, and the
soundtrack fits perfectly into the
film's idiom.
Placing the cherry on top of this
delicious treat are several wonderful
cameos. Steve Buscemi gets to talk
tall tales of the mariachi myth. Cheech
Marin gets to serve piss-flavored beer
to the dregs of society. And Quentin
Tarantino, to the delight of many, I'm
sure, gets a bullet in the head.
Desperado may be too over-the-
top for some, but it plays on that qual-
ity well. I applaud Rodriguez for play-
ing with the mythic nature of the ac-
tion genre, because the myth that is
Hollywood is starting to become a
cliche. On a scale of one to 10, Des-
perado rates a nine.

Pirates look to rebound
from Tennessee loss

wide receiver, is an NFL prospect.
Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
For the second week in
a row ECU plays one of
America's top ranked foot-
ball teams, last week they
faced the No. 8 team in
Tennessee, this weekend's
game is the 20th ranked
Syracuse Orangemen in
the USA TodayCNN
Coach's poll (AP, 22nd).
They are coming off a im-
pressive 20-9 win over the
North Carolina TarHeels in
Chapel Hill last week.
Steve Logan and his 0-
1 Pirate football team hope
to accomplish several
things this week versus the
Syracuse Orangemen in
the extremely loud Carrier
Dome. First, break a two
game losing streak that
started last season with the
30-0 loss to Illinois in the
Liberty Bowl, and this season
opener's 27-7 loss to the Tennes-
see Volunteers. Also, a win would
break a three year losing streak to
the Orangemen including two lop-
sided defeats (42-21 in 1992 and
41-22 in 1993)
Scoring points would be nice
o, the Pirates have only scored
once in their past eight quarters
of play. They have been outscored
57-7 in those eight quarters.
Against top ranked teams like Ten-
nessee and the 111ini the offense
has sputtered, especially the pass-
ing game which has had six inter-
ceptions in the past two games.
To break this losing streak
ECU must stop the option play,
concentrating on who has the foot-
hall, quarterback, fullback up the
middle, the pitchout to the
tailback and reverse to the
wideouts. Playing sound assign-
ment football is the key to beat-
ing this talented football team.
The outlook though, is not as
bad as most people would have you

Runners prepared for c95 season
Men's, women's
cross country team
ready to run
Misha Zonn
Staff Writer
All of those grueling hours spent
running in the summer heat will fi-
nally begin to pay off as the ECU Cross
Country teams begin their season.
Both the men's and women's teams
will be running in the Pembroke State
Invitational in Lumberton North Caro-
lina on Sept. 9.
On the women's side, Erin Quinn
and Megan McGruder are the lone
seniors. McGruder ran track last year
and Quinn was usually .around the
seventh spot on the cross country
team. Coach Charlie Justice believes
that his two seniors are important to
the team even though they may not
be in the top pack.
"They lead by example and by
their hard work in practice Justice
said. "They are good about giving the
other girls some insight on being com-
petitive and being focused
The main focus of the team is the
stringent competition for the top five
spots. Dava Rhodes holds the top spot,
but the other spots are yet to be de-
termined.
"This is the first time that we
have had this many good runners
Justice said. "The competition is good
because they can work together and
make each other faster because they
are running together
Karen Reinhard, a transfer from
Oklahoma, is one of the women com-
peting for the top spots. She has been
working hard all summer in order to
condition herself for the season.
"The running groups are set up
into three groups Reinhard said. "I
am in the higher
mileage group. We
have been running
from 40 minutes
to an hour and 15
per day. There has
been a lot of
weight training,
which includes a
high repetition of
sit ups
Reinhard be-
lieves that the
�'
the best teams we have had in years.
Michael Marini is the top returner on
the team. He was freshman of the year
last year. Marini and freshman Jamie
Mance were high school rivals in Dela-
ware and now they are on the same
team. So, there is a little bit of a bond
there already
Since the
team does not
have any seniors.
it will have to
look to junior
Larry Lewis and
transfer Rod
Reeves for lead-
ership. Lewis
thinks that the
season can be a
successful one
now that the
'They lead by
example and by
their hard work in

� Coach Charlie Justice
competition for the top spots is posi-
tive for the team even though it can
be stressful at times.
"Cross country is more of a team
sport than track where everyone is
going off and doing their own thing.
In cross country it really helps to have
your teammates there pushing you to
run faster. If we have seven people
working together aggressively then we
will have a good team
The men's team finished fifth in
the CAA last year and returns a team
filled with new faces. Coach Justice,
who helps out Mike Ford with the
men's team, says that the mix will be
a positive one.
"The men's team has a lot of new-
comers and has a real strong fresh-
man class. It will probably be one of
pounding summer miles are behind
them.
"Summer was mostly distance
Lewis said. "Some of the freshmen are
from up north and they were having
a little bit of trouble with the heat
The mileage starts piling up in prac-
tice and you just have to help keep
their heads up
Like Reinhard, Lewis thinks that
the team approach is what counts the
most in the sport
"It is nice to improve your time
each meet, but it is more important
to run as a pack in onJer to help the
team
Both teams will make a single
appearance in Greenville when they
compete in the ECUOverton's Invi-
tational on Oct. 7.

Stand out tackle quietly does job
Ron Suddith
Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
Big, fast objects race forward at
breakneck speed, closing in hot pur-
suit of their prize. Sounds like a
Nascar race, with souped up cars and
determined drivers pushing for the
finish line and cash money. Instead
these objects are huge defensive line-
men, who run 40-yard dashes as fast
as many defensive backs trying to
crush the quarterback.
Each week, the Pirate offensive
line faces standout pass rushers who
rely on speed to get the job done. In
the Liberty Bowl, they blocked the
No. 1 NFL prospect for the 1996 draft
in Illinois All-American defensive end
Simeon Rice. In the season opener
versus Tennessee Leonard Little, a
junior college transfer who was se-
lected by The Sporting News as the
SEC's Defensive Newcomer of the
Year went after Marcus Crandell.
This week they face the Syracuse
Orangemen in the friendly confines
of the Carrier Dome. Defensive coor-
dinator Norm Gerber has embraced
that Miami Hurricanes' defensive phi-
losophy which emphasizes size over
speed. Big linebackers get down in
three-point stances and cornerbacks
and safeties move up towards the line
of scrimmage as run stoppers.
In past years the defensive line
has been home to current NFL
standouts like Kevin Mitchell (49ers),
Tim Green (Atlanta Falcons) and Rob
Burnett of the Cleveland Browns.
This type of challenge doesn't
bother Ron Suddith, a 6-foot-2, 297
pound junior offensive tackle for the
East Carolina Pirates. The All-Inde-
pendent selection by The Sporting
News and Football News doesn't let
much bother him at all, in football
or in life.
Suddith, a All-State performer
from Miami, Fla. is used to chal-
lenges. He was the state runner up
as a heavyweight wrestler and played
in the prestigious Florida-Georgia All-
Star Game but still was shaky on his
college choice.
He visited Miami (Fla.) Tennes-
see, Florida and Auburn but had to
turn down scholarship offers, while
waiting to meet entrance require-
ments. East Carolina assistant coach
Chuck Pagano, currently the UM sec-
ondary coach kept after Suddith and
suddenly he was a Pirate, quickly be-
coming a standout blocker for line
coach Jeff Jagodzinski.
The names Dave Rebar, Scott
Freeney and Jason Walters don't
mean much to him. It is just another
game he must prepare for in block-
ing for the Pirate backfield of Marcus
Crandell and tailback Jerris McPhail.
Suddith is used to pressure after be-
ing thrown to the football wolves
against the fearsome University of
Washington defense as a freshman.
"They don't look very big
Suddith said. "They are pretty good
athletes but seem to be all speed
rushers, definitely not as big as UT. I
feel like we match up well with them.
They don't seem to be very big or
physical
The SU defensive line features
no player larger than 250 pounds but
theywork hard at running compli-
cated stunts and blitzes to get to the
quarterback. They line up differently
almost every time to create confusion
for offenses. Suddith and company
rely on line calls and hand signals to
adjust their blocking patterns to sto-p
them. Sort of complicated for the ��
erage fan who thinks line play is -�'ll
pushing and shoving. Almost like a
chess match.
The zone dive play that was par-
ticularly effective for the rushing
game last week versus UT may be an
even bigger part of the offense this
week against the undersized
Orangemen.
"We plan on running that play
until they stop it Suddith said. "We
are not changing our game plan at

Steve Logan's intricate pro
style attack is based on spreading
the football around and getting sev-
eral of his talented receivers into the
game plan. In Saturday's loss seven
different wideouts caught passes
from Marcus Crandell for an aver-
age of 9.6 per catch.
Jason Nichols led all Pirate re-
ceivers with seven catches for 48
yards. He also returned punts, re-
placing outside linebacker Morris
Foreman. Nichols led the team with
42 catches last season.
Derrek Batson, a 5-foot-10, 192
pound senior ran crisp, intermedi-
ate routes, getting open to catch
four passes for 56 yards. He also did
an outstanding job of blocking the
Tennessee defensive backs, in sup-
port of tailback Jerris McPhail.
Batson missed spring practice due
to a disciplinary suspension.
Mitchell Galloway (three
catches) and Larry Shannon (one
catch for 22 yards) played solid
games but on the deep ball were
unable to convert. Shannon had two
opportunities for long touchdowns,
one was wrestled away from him by
the UT free safety and he was over-
thrown on another. Galloway slowed
down on one pass over his shoulder
and appeared to have a chance at
catching a first quarter Crandell
bomb but didn't run through the
football, falling short in a diving at-
tempt.
"We had three opportunities for
touchdowns and we didn't execute
Logan said. "It is a difference of just
a few plays between the number
eight team in the country in Ten-
nessee and a unranked team like us.
We had chances to score on long
passes but didn't take advantage of
them
Two bright spots for receivers
coach Doug Martin was the play of
two newcomers, redshirt freshman
Mike Sellers and true freshman Troy
Smith. Sellers, a 6-foot-3, 185
pounder scored ECU's only touch-
down with a short touchdown catch
with three minutes to go in the first
half. Sellers bulled over two UT de-
fensive backs to reach the end zone.
The former high school quarter-
back from Newton County, Ga. over-
came offseason shoulder surgery to
have a strong fall camp. He played
in one game (Temple) last season be-
fore injuring the shoulder, forcing
a medical redshirt. His blend of size
and athleticism (4.5-40 yard dash)
gives the offense in Steve Logan's
words, "another tall, athletic player
on the perimeter. Sellers has an out-
standing pedigree for the game, with
relatives including All-Pro
cornerback Dale Carter of the Kan-
sas City Chiefs and wideout Jake
Reed of the Minnesota Vikings.
Troy Smith is ECU's most her-
alded recruit in many years, choos-
ing ECU amongst some heavy com-
petition including the Fighting Irish
of Notre Dame. The local product
from Greenville Rose got off to a hot
start Saturday in a small taste of
game action. He caught an 18 yard

Last year's recruiting class brought
two more standouts from down south.
Mike Sellers a 6-foot-3 185 pound ath-
lete from Newton County High School,
and Bernard Lackey, a defensive back
running back from rival school Rockdale
County both in the Atlanta MetroPlex

think. ECU was edged out 21-18
last season in Dowdy-Ficklen Sta-
dium, losing an opportunity to win
the game when the Pirates' two
minute drill faltered. They clearly
outplayed Syracuse but head
coach Paul Pasqualoni and his
team flew home to New York, vic-
torious again.
"We are tired of losing to Syra-
cuse senior running back Jerris
McPhail said. "They are a team
that we match up well with and
still they have found a way each
time to beat us. We feel like this
time things are going to be differ-
ent and we can run the football on
them
McPhail who rushed for 108
yards on 23 carries last game is
determined to continue the magic
that Jeff Blake and the 1991 Peach
Bowl team started in the 'Dome
the last time an East Carolina team
played up there. Blake engineered
a dynamic 23-20 comeback that
sparked the 11 game win streak on
their way to the No 9 national
ranking in the country.
This year's Pirate team isn't
the inexperienced group that
Malcolm Thomas. Marvin Harrison
and departed senior quarterback
Kevin Mason put up big numbers
against last year. ECU returns al-
most it's entire starting lineup
from last year's 7-5 group. The tal-
ent and depth at each position
particularly wide receiver and the
offensive line may be the best in
the school's history.
It is Syracuse that lacks expe-
rience at several key positions,
mainly at quarterback. After a pre-
season struggle with fellow under-
classmen Keith Downing and
Kevin Johnson, redshirt freshman
Donovan McNabb has won the
starting job. He made an impres-
sive debut versus Carolina going
10-16 for 120 yards, also running
the option well.
The 6-foot-l, 210 pound
former Parade Ail-American from
Mt. Carmel, III. has a scrambling,
exciting running style that is remi-
niscent of past All-American QB
Marvin Graves.
"He is a very, very athletic
quarterback Logan said. "You
could tell it was his first game, but
he is very fast. When Carolina
flushed him out of the pocket that
was the best thing they could do
for him because he could get out-
side and outrun everybody
Don't be surprised if ECU de-
fensive coordinator Paul Jette
blitzes the young quarterback or
if Downing or Johnson see some
action as well. McNabb has not ex-
actly nailed down the starting po-
sition for good.
The Orangemen return both
starting running backs in Malcolm
Thomas and Terry Morris. Thomas
rushed for 80 yards in last year's
game and is a slashing back with
good speed and size. Tebucky
Jones is an exciting big-back who
has a lot of potential, he will see
significant action behind Thomas.
Morris is used primarily for block-
ing.
Their offensive line is not
quite as good as Tennnessee's but
it is a solid group that returns
three starters. Guard Cy Ellsworth
and tackle Jim Ledger are
Syracuse's best returning offensive
linemen.
The wide receiver core like
ECU is the best unit on SU's team.
Marvin Harrison is an outstanding
NFL prospect, with the speed to
get deep. He along with veterans
Jim Turner (also returns kicks) and
SirMawn Wilson is one of the big-
gest and fastest groups of receiv-
ers in the country. At tight end big
sophomores Kaseem Sinceno and
Roland Williams share the posi-
tion.
On defense the Orange fea-
tures a quick, attacking group that
is slightly undersized. Dave Rebar.
Scott Freeney and Jason Walters
are all highly skilled and fast con-
verting from linebacker. Antonio
Anderson, Jeff Danish and Andre
Smith are conventionally sized de-
fensive linemen.
At outside linebacker Nate
Hemsley was named the Big East
Conference Defensive Player of the
week after recording 10 tackles
and a 29 yard interception return
versus the TarHeels. Dulayne Mor-
gan, Antwaune Ponds and Chris
Marques are also gifted pass rush-
ers and run stoppers. Ponds lines
up inside along with junior Dana
Cottrell. Ponds was the ECAC
Rookie of the Year last season.
This group loves to blitz and pen-
etrate the backfield.
The secondary isn't the big-
gest group but does have speed
and experience. Kevin Abrams led
the Big East in pass breakups. He
is joined at the other corner spot
by Rod Gadson and Phil Nash. At
the safeties Darrell Parker returns
at strong and is a physical tackier.
Donovin Darius is an outstanding
athlete at the free safety position.
The Orangemen feature two
returning kickers in punter Sean
Reali and placekicker Olindo
Mare. Both shared several of the
kicking duties a year ago.
For ECU to win this football
game they must contain the option
and be clear on who has quarter-
back and pitch containment on
each play. The play action pass out
of the option package has hurt the
Pirates over the years. They must
be aware of this play. On offense
the line must continue to give
Marcus Crandell time to hit his tal-
ented receivers. The Pirates have
a legitimate chance at scoring a lot
of points on this small SU second-
ary and coming home with a win
from the Carrier Dome for the sec-
ond straight time.

crossing route from backup quarter-
back Dan Gonzalez. Smith was rated
among the Top 15 receivers in the
country last vear after a three year
career in which he caught 134 passes
for 2,088 yards and 27 touchdowns.
The progress of Sellers and
Smith adds outstanding depth to a
position already deep in talent that
will lose only one player (Batson) to
graduation. Despite the missed op-
portunities, Pirate quarterback
Marcus Crandell has a variety of
weapons to throw to. Batson,
Linwood DeBrew and Nichols excel
on the short routes and Galloway and
Shannon are accomplished at catch-
ing the deep ball. The combination
should put up big numbers this sea-
son.

his other visits scheduled for Hawaii,
Clemson, Georgia Tech and Georgia
Southern. This was after bigger univer-
sities like Michigan, Alabama and Virginia
backed off of him after he failed to make
the required SAT score on his first try
but succeeded on his second attempt
After meeting Georgia players like Crane
and West on his visit his mind was made
up he would play football for Steve I ogan
and major in Communications.
"Originally, me, Bernard and a full-
back from Clarke Central named Rip
Kendrick were going to all come here
Seller said. "Rip committed first but
didn't get into school, then Bernard and
then me. I was leaning towards Hawaii
but my mom thought that was too far
for me to go to school. Bernard turned
down Indiana and Mississippi State and
we both signed
lackey, one of the fastest players
on the team is a physical player on the
Pirate special teams and quality reserve
at safety and comerback. He ran a 4.45
40-yard dash this spring during testing.
Sellers became the second option
QB to convert to wide receiver at ECU,
the first being standout flanker Jason
Nichols from Norcross, Ga. Nichols led
ECU in receptions with 42 in his first
year as a starter.
His first season was ended by a
medical redshirt caused by a recurring
shoulder injury that he suffered in his
first game action versus Temple and kept
him out of most of spring practice. After
a fall camp slump in which his confidence
dipped, wide receivers coach Doug Mar-
tin the man who recruited Sellers had a
long talk with the second-year player.
"He told me that they expected a
lot from me and they knew I could play
better Sellers said. "I worked harder and
1 started to play better
In one scrimmage Sellers made sev-
eral long catches impressing Logan.
"He gives us another tall, athletic
player on the perimeter to throw to
And threw to him they did in the
season opener versus Tennessee, with
Sellers scoring the Pirates' lone touch-
down. He used his size and 4.5 speed to
get open, putting his body between the
defender and the football. The second
quarter score gave Sellers increased con-
fidence and belief in himself.
"I felt pretty comfortable out there
because it wasn't my first game Sellers
said. "In the red zone the coaches stress
that in practice we must come away with
a score. I just try to get out of my cut fast
and Marcus got me the football in good
position to make the play
As far as goals he doesn't set many
individual ones, just to stay healthy all
season, play hard and catch the ball ev
ery time he has a chance to. Sellers wants
to go back to the Liberty Bowl and con-
tinue to represent Atlanta well.
"Me and Bernard we saw how the
other guys from back home were doing
well up here and we just wanted to con-
tinue that" Sellers said. "We feel liked
there is a tradition for Georgia players
up here and we want to be a big part of
that"
This year's class includes Freddie
Claybrooks, a defensive end from Lomn
West's alma mater, Decatur High School
and Tohma McMillan, a outside linebacker
from Cross Keys in Atlanta. McMillan saw
action versus Tennessee and Claybrooks
is redshirted. The chances of next year's
class including more Georgia players is
definitely a safe bet

all, wc want to run the ball right at
them
For pass blocking tine Pirates'
short passing game demands getting
the defense on the ground quickly.
The best way to accomplish that is
by chop blocking down low around
the knees and ankles, a tactic em-
braced by the offensive line, not as a
cheap shot but legally and within the
rules.
Suddith and the rest of the of-
fensive line of Charles Boothe, Jamie
Gray, Kevin Wiggins and Lamont
Burns aren't all brute force and size
out there. All five of the starters be-
sides Suddith are former defensive
lineman and have been clocked un-
der 5.0 in the 40-yard dash. Suddith
is the biggest at nearly 300 pounds
and runs a 5.2. good speed for a of-
fensive tackle who may project to
guard at the next level.
Talk of the pro's isn't what he is
focusing on now. It is a business-like
approach, another game, time to go
to work.
"I'm not the type of guy who
beats his head against his locker be-
fore a game Suddith said. "I just
relax and do my best each week. This
game is just a chance for a win and a
good offensive performance
CALHOUN from page 1
I know is it will take a miracle to save
the love of my life
Calhoun was transported by he-
licopter to Pitt County Memorial and
the prognosis seemed hopeful until
late Saturday night when Dr. Toochy,
a nine-year veteran of spinal cord in-
juries who has worked seven years at
the Miami Project, a world-renowned
neurosurgical center examined him.
The paralysis was obvious, but X
Rays revealed three fractures of the
important C-5 vertebrae which caused
the quadraplegia, the inability to move
the arms, legs and the trunk of the
body. The doctor and his staff worked
diligently to realign his twisted spinal
cord, which was almost bent in two.
They used a 20-pound weight to
pull the spine back out to its proper
alignment and worked on fusing the
bones and cleaning out the bone
chips. A HALO cast was affixed to his
head, an orthopedic device used to
immobilize the neck and head. It in-
corporates the whole upper torso,
secured by pins to a band around the
upper skull area.
The problem was during the pro-
cedure, one of Jim's major arteries to
the brain became clogged, and he
wasn't getting precious blood to the
brain stem, the area of the brain that
controls the motor, sensory and re-
flex functions. This caused the stroke
which leaves him currently unable to
talk, feel or hear anything.
"This is the worst injury of its
type that I have ever seen Toochy
said.
Jim's uncle Terry Barbour is an
international sales manager for
Hardee's Corporation in Rocky
Mount. He is a tall, neatly dressed man
who remains exceedingly calm and
strong in this crisis. He has two young
children who looked up to Calhoun
as a role model.
"Jim is the type of kid you want
your kids to grow up to be like
Barbour said. "He wasn't perfect, but
he was a good, decent young man who
cared about others and left a positive
impression on everyone he met. He
excelled in sports and wanted to be
an athletic director or coach at the
university level. He loved basketball
and baseball, and he was good enough
to play for small school, but he wanted
to be a part of big-time college athlet-
ics so after going to N.C. State for a
year he transferred to ECU and he was
doing real well in his major, Business
Administration.
"I just don't see how it is fair for
someone like Jim who had his priori-
ties in order and so much to offer to
people to have something like this
happen. You always have hope, and
you can pray for miracles, but realisti-
cally there isn't much hope left. His
injuries are pretty devastating. His
chances have gone from 50-50 to 5-
5
The Calhouns are comforted, even
amazed at how many friends Jim has.
Over 100 people have stopped by. The
basketball team and coaching staff
present them with a jersey for Jim, and
a signed basketball. The university
seems to anticipate everything they
need - meals, a place to stay, whatever.
They regret that more people didn't
know their son, particularly young
people. He influenced many youngsters
through his coaching to make positive
choices, but the Clahouns feel bad for
those who won't have the opportunity
to play for him. They are not giving up
by any means, neither is Jim, they know
he is fighting for his life in that room.
Tonya Oxendine's eyes water and
tear time and time again. Thoughts and
emotions run through this young lady
whose world seemed perfect She does
well in school, plays for a top softball
team and had a loving boyfriend who
could always make her laugh. Why, why
would God do this to her, to Jim and his
family?
He is running a temperature today
and they have to put him on a cooling
blanket to bring the fever down. They
are doing some more X-Rays to see if
there is more damage than they first
noticed. His breathing is troubled and
they say there may be some respiratory
problems.
Tonya gets even angrier and frus-
trated. She and the Calhouns have prayed
around the clock, never leaving Jim's side.
Doesn't anyone out there hear them?
School is the last thing on her mind but
she goes to class, going through the mo-
tions. She mentions a poem, an anony-
mous selection that her roommate Jean
Marie gave to her. It makes her feel better
in this trying time.
And you learn to build all your
roads on today. Because tomorrow's
ground is too uncertain for plans. And
futures have a way of falling in mid-flight
After a while you team
That even sunshine bums if you get
too much So you plant your own gar-
den and decorate your own soul.
Instead of waiting for someone to
bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can
endure
That you really are strong.
And you really do have worth.
And you leam and learn
With every goodbye you learn. -
"Comes Dawn the Road"
Jim Calhoun remains in critical con-
dition. His parents have instructed Dr.
Toochy and his medical staff to continue
to take every measure as long as his heart
is beating. They continue to pray and hope
for a miracle.
