(AP) - Who you gonna call?
You might start with the state
attorney's general office if any-
body claiming to be a ghostbuster
knocks on your door.
The attorney general's office
is warning citizens that con art-
ists are traveling across North
Carolina, as well as Virginia, of-
fering bogus home improvement
services - like poltergeist exter-
mination - for big bucks.
A spokesman for Attorney
General Mike Easley says the swin-
dlers have amassed possibly hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars and
are especially successful in west-
ern North Carolina, with its large
population of wealthy retirees.
(AP) - Trustees of th6 Uni-
versity of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill have taken the first
step toward raising tuition by
$400 a year for all students and
up to $3,000 for some out-of-state
graduate students.
The trustees' finance commit-
tee Friday voted to recommend
the controversial increase, which
has been sharply criticized by stu-
dents and by UNC system Presi-
dent CD. Spangler. The full board
is expected to vote on the pro-
posal Sept 22.

(AP) - AT&T Corp. is cut-

(AP)- In Detroit, four com-
panions of a 19-year-old man
charged with murder for allegedly
attacking a woman who jumped
to her death from a bridge will
not be charged.
Wayne County Prosecutor
John O'Hair said Thursday the
companions of i9-year-old Martell
Welch Jr. had little to do with the
woman's plunge as horrified on-
lookers stood by and will be used
as witnesses against Welch.
Welch stood mute Friday at
his arraignment and an innocent

As RUSH weeks come to a close
for the fall semester, coordinators agree
ECU'S Greek community experienced
record numbers in interested partici-
pants this year.
"I attended some of the fraternity
RUSH parties we seemed to have a
good turnout compared to previous
years said Ronald Speier, dean of stu-
dents and advisor for the Interfrater-
nity Council (1FC). "Most were satis-
fied with the number of men who ac-
cepted bids to join their fraternity
Speier credits a major portion of
this year's large turnout to Greek in-
formation forums held during fresh-
men orientations. "Standing room
only is how Speier described the fo-
rums held during all eight orientation
sessions throughout the summer.
"We estimated that close to 800
people came to that information ses-
sion - it was crazy, people were stand-

added that other factors also contrib-
uted to this year's large turnout.

Seminar saves money

An ECU professor is sharing in-

save money.
Dr. Joseph Kiely, an assistant pro-
fessor in ECU's finance department is

The seminar targets individuals
ages 45 and younger, and challenges the
misconceptions people have about invest-
ing money.

to have a lot of money to make money,
this is absolutely not true Kiely said.

can make that don't require any money
at all. You just search for them

Kiely provided a few simple tips that en-
lightened students about saving money.
"Have you ever called your phone
company?" he asked the class. "Most

International House and ECU's Stu-

tional and national exchange students
the opportunity to get acquainted and
share their experiences in Greenville over
free bowls of ice cream at the Sunday
Sundae Social on Sept 17.
"We had a nice group (Sunday), and
we had a lot of fun said International

Stephanie Evancho. "We had interna-
tional students from Australia, Finland,
France and Germany and national ex-
change students from Maine, Ohio and
Evancho said there are approxi-
mately 40 students at ECU on exchange,
and about 25 were present to socialize
on Sunday.
" It was a night to get them together
and enjoy a typical American dessert
Evancho said. "Everyone loves ice cream,
so we figured it would be a good way to
get them to loosen up and meet each
She said that even though the in-
ternational students all had ice cream in
their respective home countries, some
of the American flavors were new to

selection and was like, 'What's that?' I
had to explain that it was just ice cream
with chopped Oreos in it I thought it
was kind of funny Evancho said.
Exancho added that the students
also participated in a game of Greenville
"It was just a game to see how well
they knew the area and to see how much
they have learned since the beginning
of the program Evancho said.
According to Evancho, the Student
Exchange Program has been active at
ECU since 1988, but this is the first year
Finland and Sweden have participated
in the program.
"It's a great way to see another part
of the world and a great way to do it"
Evancho said, adding that students
should take advantage of the opportu-
nity to travel and study abroad before
they get settled into a career and a per-
manent family situation.
The exchange students will have the
opportunity to enjoy several other local
festivities. Evancho said they will attend
a Seafood Festival in Morehead City, the
N.C. State Fair in Raleigh and an End of
Semester Party in December.

How does four to five hours
of sleep a night sound? During
the summer, rising seniors in the
ROTC participated in Camp All
America where they learned
many leadership activities.
This camp was a type of fi-
nal examination for cadets and
helped them prioritize their fu-
ture in the military, said Cadet
Ellis Baker.
Seven separate platoons of
40 participated in the camp
which was held at Fort Bragg.
Sponsoring the camp was the
82nd Airborne of Fort Bragg.
"Camp is a chance for ris-
ing seniors to apply skills hands

One of the activities cadets took
place in was the Slide for Life which
is a 90-foot rope slide over water and
land. Two professors were sent to the
camps for a five day period to experi-
ence some of the same activities as
the cadets.
"Basically the whole purpose of
it was so they (the professors) could
see what the students had to go
through Pitts said.
"I was real impressed with the fo-
cus on leadership said Assistant Pro-
fessor Eldean Pierce.
A typical day began at 5 a.m. and
may have involved learning skills such
as water survival. These activities were
used as confidence builders said
One of the confidence builders
cadets had to take place in was known
as the Recondo which was a 40-foot
drop from a rope in to a river.
Baker said it was important for
cadets to do well in their activities to
give them a better understanding of
what direction they would head in,
whether it be active duty or reserves.

Snapple lady visits UNC-Chapel Hill
UNC won't have a starring role in a new television commercial,
but one university student gave it her best shot. Sometimes if you
write a letter they will answer. And sometimes they will come to visit.
Last March, Diana D'Abruzzo, an orientation counselor this fall,
wrote a letter to Wendy Kaufman, more popularly known as the
Snapple Lady, requesting that she come this fall to ease the transi-
tion back to school.
"Can you, in all your Snapple wisdom, come up with a solution to
refresh those moving in, put a smile on the faces of the freshmen and
relieve the parents as they leave their children behind?" D'Abruzzo
asked in her letter.
Kaufman signed buttons, caps, iron-on decals and frisbees during
her appearance in the Pit. "I give good mangos, good frisbees, good
buttons and some comedy she told the crowd lined up to meet her.
Indiana State University's new mascot is on endangered list
Sycamore Sam, the university's squirrel mascot-in-waiting, may
be on the cutting board, so to speak.
Williams-Randall, the firm hired by the university to develop the
squirrel concept, surveyed a series of focus groups made up of the
same groups of people who despise Sycamore Sam.
The focus groups saw a presentation of the mascot used in a
variety of ways, including its performance possibilities at athletic
events, and their reaction was measured.
Depending on the groups' reactions, the critter, which drew 45
percent of student body votes in April, may be out on his furry tail.

Students interested in pursuing a
graduate degree at ECU do not have to
look far for assistance.
There are currently two tests nec-
essary to enter graduate programs, the
GMAT for business students and the GRE
for other degrees. ECU administers both
tests and offers preparatory programs on
campus. A need was recognized by Pro-
fessional Programs, a division of the
School of Business, to offer test taking
skills relevant to the GMAT and GRE.
"About four years ago, one of our
faculty members said we should start a
program for the GMAT exam. We started
with that said Geoffrey Allen, assistant
dean of professional programs.

During the course of the first semi-
nar, Kiely went from simple tips such as
calling phone and credit card companies
to secrets about long term investment
and return. Class attendants, including
professors, professionals in the commu-
nity and ECU students received informa-
tion about long term investment balanc-
ing risk and return when dealing with
the stock market, diversifying invest-
ments with sound, conservative products
and cost reduction when investing.
"Most of these topics are very im-
portant especially for students Kiely
said. "There is no guarantee mat the
government and social security will be
there for them when they need it"
According to Kiely, college students
are already caught in the trap of debt
caused by credit cards with high interest
"It's important that students start
learning about and saving money Kiely
said. "People spend more time shopping
for bargains in the grocery store than
choosing a bank or credit card company
that will give them the best rates
Kiely has made arrangements with
The Daily Reflector to publish a weekly

the skills necessary to excel at the exam
The cost of registration is $150 for early
registration and $170 afterward. Stu
dents can register in room 1200 of the

fessor Allen said. "We talk to the stu-

Along with graduate programs, Pro-
fessional Programs offers continuing
education, public service and SAT review
programs. People outside of the univer-
sity such as real estate agents, apprais-
ers, brokers and salesmen are eligible for
the continuing education courses at
ECU. In the public service division, Ca-
reer Day is offered. This is a lecture type
program where outside companies come
to ECU to speak about job opportuni-
ties and answer any questions. Last year,
a new program was started to benefit

By the students and for the students. Sound familiar? Well,
that's because you read it in our Back-to-School issue.
This motto still holds true for the staff of The East Carolin-
ian. We are here because of you and for you. But, until we hear
from you we can't know what you want - or don't want.
Our Letters to the Editor forum is your chance to express
yourself. If you didn't like what you read in today's paper, if it
really griped you, then let us know. And guess what, you also
can let us know when you agree with something we've written.
All you have to do is type up 250 (or less) of your very own
words and bring them by The East Carolinian office. Because
some "bright" students have had the wise idea to forge letters,
we are now requiring that you also bring a picture id - just to
be on the safe side.
Last year, we started the guest columnist column. This gives
students and faculty members the opportunity to express them-
selves with more than 250 words. The guest column only runs
occasionally, but if you feel like your opinion warrants the space,
let us know.
If writing a letter isn't your forte, give us a call. Although
we feel like we're here 24-7, there are a few hours when the
office is empty, so leave us a message. Thanks to ECU'S new
fiber optics system, we now have voice mail.
If you know of something interesting or controversial that
is going on, let us know. Although we try to know everything,
we're not omnipotent. We are always looking for good story
ideas. If it sounds interesting to you, chances are likely it will to
your fellow students too.
While every ECU student may not agree with what The
East Carolinian is printing, our sole purpose is to provide you
with the latest in news, sports and lifestyles. If you think we
need more of one area, or less of another, let us know. It's your
paper too.

Backyard meat market
Meat-market: (noun) -a slang
term used in the early-to-mid '90s
to depict a social gathering where
everybody stares at everybody else.
An example of a meat-market might
be a bar or a party. Let us stretch
the boundaries of this definition.
There are many forms of meat-mar-
kets in our world, the largest one in
this town happens to be ECU Stu-
dent Stores.
If you attend college then
chances are you have been to a
meat-market. Uh yes, don t say that
you haven't been to one. We all find
ourselves in this position sooner or
later. Crowds of people standing
around with absolutely nothing to
do but stand around. At no time are
you allowed to look at the person
that you are talking to. There is al-
ways the chance that you might miss
a glance from Romeo or Juliet.
Off in one corner is the over-

him will make any woman pine.
There is a little bit of these two
people in all of us. We must realize
where and when they manifest them-
selves if we have any hope of con-
taining them. Student Stores is one
of these places.
Sometimes, when I walk down
the street in front of the Wright
Place I feel like I have entered the
longest soul train in history. On each
side people sit on the curb staring
down the pipeline to see who will
appear next. Every member has the
cool sunglasses. A flock of girls slide
by on Roller Blades as more funnel
into the train to strut their stuff.
If you are observant you can no-
tice the people who never actually
go to class. These are the people
who seem to have the student look
but are toting empty backpacks. Last
yer I met some guys from a local
high school who had skipped class
just to walk around and be a part of
the scene.
The only thing that seems to be
missing is music. It does not seem
inconceivable that in the near future
15-foot speakers could be placed at
the ends of the street. The SGA
could hang disco balls from tree
branches and play the theme from
Saturday Night Fever between
classes. Are we getting a picture
There's nothing wrong with
people watching. Everybody likes to
see what kinds of strange students
inhabit this campus. There is also
nothing wrong with hanging around
Student Stores. Where else can you
go for the 10 or 15 minutes between
classes? Simply refrain from wear-
ing high heels to class. Try and look
at the person with whom you are
talking and attempt to scale down
the scoping. It's not pretty when you
fall down because you were starring
at some stud boy biking across cam-
pus with no shirt and a pair ol
$12,000 sunglasses. I only bring
these things to light because I care.

These are three of the concerns
most often raised by men and women
when going through Rush. New mem-
bers are always curious about what
they have heard from other people.
Like other groups, as long as there
are Greek organizations, people will
continually judge them by stereotypes
and preformed opinions. For most
Greek students, these stereotypes
have no merit, no factual foundation.
Not only are they untrue, in many
cases they are completely opposite.
To understand a Greek's concern
about an article such as "Analysis
Finds Binge Drinking High Among
Greeks you must first understand
the image Greeks are trying to attain.
The days of the "Animal House" and
the 50 keg open party are long gone.
Today's Greeks are attempting to dis-
miss the beliefs formed in the 70s and
late '80s that we are irresponsible
students whose main concern is which
party to go to next Contrary to this
opinion, today's Greeks are composed
of students who genuinely care about

ions about Greeks before conducting
his study.
Fraternities and Sororities are by
their very nature social. They all know
how to have a good time and how to
have a party. But they are also taught
social responsibility through their
brotherhoods and sisterhoods. They
are taught skills to help them succeed
in the University environment. They
learn about the responsible use of al-
cohol through programs set up either
by their national office or through
their individual groups. The positive
things that Greeks do are numerous.
But these aren't important enough
to discuss, according to Dr. Wechsler.
What exactly do we know, Dr.
Wechsler? Your study does not tell
who these people are, where they go
to school or what kinds of questions
were asked. In essence, we are sup-
posed to take your word that although
we know practically nothing about
those surveyed, these people do in fact
exist We are given this study pre-
sented by the acclaimed Doctor and
asked to believe that our Greek sys-
tem, or at least 80-86 percent of it,
are exactly the kind of people we have
believed them to be all along.
I personally do not believe that
80 percent of Greek women and 86
percent of Greek men are binge drink-
ers. I can't believe that at East Caro-
lina, a group of borderline alcohol-
ics comprises a large part of the Stu-
dent Government Association and do-
nates close to $75,000 a year to indi-
vidual charities. I don't believe that
three out of every five Fortune500
members are drunks. I don't believe
that all but two U.S. presidents had
drinking problems. I don't believe
that by drinking heavily, Greek men
and women are able to maintain a
GPA well over the campus average.
Dr. Wechsler, I don't believe you, I
don't believe your survey, and I cer-
tainly don't believe your stereotypes.

One of my textbooks for this semester
is an intriguing volume called
Technopoly, by Neil Postman, which
deals with the two camps of Techophiles

The Technophiles are the

at me was about the historic "evolution

to agree with him The reason why people

reason that Bryan was made to look like

science is a pretty tough nut to crack,
Bryan was certainly not in the
wrong for standing up for his convictions.
He may even have been right all along,
but I don't think he'll be sharing any
such revelations with us any time soon.
But he certainly must have known,

To the Editor:
A recent opinion column on the
Women's Conference in Beijing
brought several questions to mind. My
first question is whether the author's
concerns are truely for the
enpowerment and freedom of women.
The second question is where did the
curious information about fetus can-
nibalism come from? Another ques-
tion that comes to mind is who de-
cides what the feelings and beliefs of
the average American are. My ques-
tions are pertinent in that the article
doesn't seem to make a distinction
between fact opinion and hard-core
fundamentalist rhetoric. I realize that
this is an opinion column, but even
this facet of "journalism" should let
the reader know more about where
such sensationalized information
comes from. What exactly is -World-?
Is it a periodical, newsletter or per-
haps a public access broadcast?
I'm struck by Deike's inordinate
concern for women's Health Care, edu-

the author has a lot of interest in pro-

It is a sad and perhaps little
known fact that women of China have

in the hands of a patriarchal society,
but the irony of a women's conference

At the beginning of Last of the
Dogmen, narrator Wilford Brimley
relates with the melodramatic flair
of cold oatmeal the story of how
his friend Lewis Gates (Tom
Berenger) discovered a tribe of In-
dians still living secluded in the
mountains of Montana. Brimley in-
tones that Lewis' story is a West-
ern "and like all good Westerns,
this one begins with outlaws

Last of the Dogmen takes
place in Montana, and the outlaws
Brimley refers to in his opening
monologue are escaped prisoners
who flee into the Rockies (shades
of The Fugitive; the escape was
made from an overturned bus). The
leading lawman of the area, Sher-
iff Deegan (Kurtwood Smith), calls
on Lewis Gates to track the outlaws
and bring them back. Though
Deegan dislikes Gates.(who was
married to Deegan's daughter when
she died in a river accident) he calls
for Gates because of the other
man's expertise.
Gates follows the men into the
mountains and locates them, but
when he finally catches up to them
he finds nothing but blood and a
torn shirt. Something got to the
men and Gates suspects Indians
(the broken arrow provides a big
enough clue, I suppose). Gates
wants to verify his hunch and so
tracks down a noted anthropolo-
gist, Lillian Sloan (Barbara
Hershey). As expected, Gates ex-
pects her to be a man and is taken
aback when he discovers a female

Clockers is
time well-spent
Dale Williamson
Staff Writer
The O.J. Simpson trial has
opened up many legal questions, but
the big issue still centers around
whether or not Simpson is the one
who committed the murders. Keeping
the guilt vs. innocence issue in mind,
Spike Lee's latest cinematic effort jolts
the viewer into the harsh realties of
murder and how such an act can
change someone's life forever. The
result is an unsettling journey into the
darkest alleys of America.
Based on Richard Price's best
selling book, Clockers follows the
jaded life of 19-year-old Strike, played
convincingly by Mekhi Phifer. Strike
is a disillusioned black youth who gets
sucked into the drug world breeding
in his low-income Brooklyn neighbor-
hood. In an effort to cease being a
docker (a term used for entry-level
crack dealers), Strike turns to his
crack-dealing boss, Rodney.
Rodney has a plan for Strike's
future. If Darryl, a fast food restau-
rant manager who may be stealing
from Rodney, were murdered, -then
Strike could take Darryl's place as
manager. The problem is that Strike
gets gunshy when he decides to carry
out Rodney's wishes. Or does he?
Darryl is murdered, but it is
Strike's older, hardworking brother
Victor who takes the heat. Even
though Victor admits to the murder,
homicide detective Rocco Klein
(played by the ever-lovable Harvey
Keitel) doesn't buy it Rocco sees Vic-
tor as an honest, self-driven family
Strike, however, is a get-rich-
quick menace to society. Suspecting
foul play, Rocco is convinced that Vic-
tor is protecting his brother. Refus-
ing to be played for a fool, Rocco con-
centrates all his energy on getting the
"guilty" man, Strike.
The script which was cowritten
by Price and Lee, is somewhat typical
of the gangster films that have come
out in recent years. But the film is
lifted out of its potential mundane
trashcan by Lee's fierce filmmaking
flair and several piercing perfor-
mances, particularly from Delroy
Lindo and Isaiah Washington.
As crack kingpin Rodney, Delroy
Lindo strikes with the same powerful
presence he showed in Malcolm X.
Lindo layers Rodney with the respect
of a father figure and the crazed an-
ger of a man pushed beyond the edge.

Powerful Pain Relief

vocals that gave a nice laidback feel to
the cheesy musical background. They've
kept those harmonies on Powerful Pain
Relief, but have replaced the cheese with
really great 70s soul and funk instru-
mentation. For the most part, the mix
doesn't work.
They are able to pull it together on
a few tracks, though. When you hear the
wah-wah guitar opening of "Roll-On you
know you're waiting for Isaac Hayes to
begin his set at the Sahara Tahoe. Then
there are the two TV themes. "Vigilante"
sounds like an combination of every 70s
cop show theme, from "Beretta" to
"Starsky & Hutch" to "SWAT In keep-
ing with the generation it emulates, the
song "Me" is the lost sitcom theme, tak-
ing cues from "The Bob Newhart Show"
and "Sesame Street"
By far the best track is the instru-
mental, "Peepin for it conjures up im-
ages of Richard Roundtree doing his best
strut down the avenue, all decked out in
a brown leather trenchcoat and black
turtleneck ("That Shaft, he's one bad
mother - shut your mouth"). All of the
instrumentation on this album is superb
Most of the applause for that sound
should go to the producer, Paul DuGre.
Among his credits is the fantastic album
Kiko by Los Lobos. He has managed to
bring out the very best of Love Jones'
musical ability. Their playing has never
been better. It makes you wish you could
separate out the channels on the stereo
so that the vocals would disappear and
the music could be allowed to breathe.
Although this is a great trip down
memory lane, the nostalgic value has
been marred by an incompatible musi-
cal match.
Love Jones began to get notice with
its last album, Here's to the Losers, where
they were placed amongst the emerging
"Cocktail Nation" along with such acts
as Combustible Edison and Grenadine.
They billed themselves as "lounge swing-
ers" and performed the part very well.
Now they've broken out of that mold
and moved on to 70s soul music with
their new album, Powerful Pain Relief.
Everything that worked for them as a
lounge act works against them on this
new record.
The best parts of their lounge set
were the three and four part harmony
ists decorate the
walls. Linda Curry

rals which depict
the story of coffee.

The big game was over and
everyone was happy because
our team slaughtered the visi-
tors from Central Michigan. Par-
ents were enjoying dorm rooms
and Greek house visits. Fresh-
men were attempting to con-
vince their parents that ECU's
party school image is a farce, a
completely ludicrous mockery
penned by those triangular
planters of evil propaganda at
The News & Observer.
"It's not true I protest
with tightlyclinched fists in air,
"we won't stand for this contin-
ued harassment
This was my first "real" Par-
ents' Weekend. I transferred to
ECU a couple years ago; but un-
fortunately sickness had me
bedridden last year.
Being somewhat healthy for
the big event this year, I was
looking forward to seeing if ev-
eryone acted differently. My par-
ents didn't come into town, so I
could be a truly objective ob-
server of everyone else.
I originally expected a mod-
est, reserved crowd downtown
Saturday night. Everyone's
mommies and daddies are here.
No one wants to end up in the
drunk-tank at Pitt County Cor-
rectional Facility or face down
in the gutter while their parents
are sleeping soundly at East
Carolina Inn. The one weekend
when folks would be calm and
collected, I thought, would be
Parents' weekend.
That's what I get for think-
Last Halloween was the
only time I'd seen more people
concentrated in the downtown
area. Around 1:30 a.m. I realized
that the bars hadn't even let
out, but the streets were already
flooded with people.
I was certainly ready to go
home, but I guess it was mor-
bid curiosity that made me stick
around. It was like my hand cov-
ered my eyes, but the fingers
were spread so I could have a
good view should something
truly redneckish happen; like a
big fight or a car accident.
According to the ALE, at 2
a.m. downtown bars must re-
lease all their drunken patrons
into the unsuspecting streets.
Every bar was slam packed and
at 2 a.m everyone was forced
into the street.
Beer bottles crash-slammed
onto the wet pavement.
Drunken marines, convinced
any ECU female would follow
them back to their base, were
singing, "Semper Fi, do or die
(bark-bark, bark-bark) WITN-
Channel 7, was there. TV cam-
eras were strategically placedin
front of Champions, anticipat-
ing an out-of-control melee.
Everyone stumbled onto
Fifth street in a drunken blur.
Like sardines, the downtown
area was packed from Milano's
to BW-3's. As I stood directly in
front of Omar's, I knew a riot
would start. Under their breath,
a few people were recalling the
prior weekend's infamous
macing incident.
Nothing happened. Every-
one kind of stood around wait-
ing and waiting for the inevi-
table riot, but it never hap-
pened. I was kind of disap-
pointed, not because there was
no riot, but because there was
not a single instance of police
brutality. One step out of line
by one of Greenville's finest, and
weeks of opinion page material
is created.
Since it's over, I'm proud of
my school for not going crazy
when the situation was virtually
inevitable. Oh well, I guess The
News & Observer is going to
have to find real news to print
this week instead of "riot in
Greenville" material. Oh well,
there's always next week.

come to love their prisoners, and the
prisoners come to love the Indians.
But Sheriff Deegan wants to find
Gates and thus unknowingly comes
close to discovering the tribe.
The grand finale of Last of the
Dogmen has all the suspense of a
Road Runner cartoon. I never once
thought the Indians were in trouble.
The final scene even has TNT -
enough to make even Wile E. Coy-
ote proud.
The discrepancies in this film
are too numerous to list One incred-
ibly stupid aspect of the insipid
script would have the viewer believe
that the Indians could remain hid-
den for over 100 years only to be
found by a tracker and then to be
found in rapid succession by Sher-
iff Deegan and his men. If Gates was
the best tracker in the state, how
did the Sheriff ever find him?
Lillian Sloan is also a problem.
Here is a woman who admittedly
knows little about hiking, yet man-
ages to stay stride for stride with
an experienced mountain man.
In one incredibly banal bit of
dialogue, Gates spouts off to Sloan
about how he has seen the moun-
tains reduce grown men to tears.
Please, do people really talk like this
anywhere but in bad movies?
Last of the Dogmen plays like a
Tuesday night made-for-TV movie.
The story unfolds with such bland
predictability that the viewer will be
bored before any interest in gener-
ated. The filmakers seem to be do-
ing connect-the-dot movie making.
They insert the heroine who must
prove her mettle to the he-man
tracker. They have the good Indians,
two good white people and a whole
band of bad white men.
The film provides nothing for
the viewer to latch onto. The charac-
ters are cliched, the story is dull and
uninspired, the scenery is shot with
no flair and the direction is so tired
that the film is downright boring.
At the risk of making too easy a
pun, this film is a dog.
On a scale of one to 10, Last of
the Dogmen rates a three.

Tuesday, September 19, 1995 The East Carolinian
Rain or shine Central
Michigan falls behind
Aaron Wilson
Staff Writer
ECU overcame the elements and
an inability t score in the red zone
to easily defeat the Central Michigan
Chippewa's 30-17 before a rain-soaked
33,021 crowd in Dowdy Ficklen Sta-
dium. The visiting Chippewas of the
Mid-American Conference were ex-
tremely outmatched by the Pirates'
speed and talent being outgained 452-
284 in total yards and surrendering
six turnovers.
The mismatch showed early in
the second quarter when senior
tailback Jerris McPhail ran for 70 of
his career high 178 rushing yards on
a long sprint up the left sideline go-
ing untouched by the defense. The
score came at the 14.42 mark of the
third quarter building the Pirate lead
to 20-3 early in the second half, grab-
bing the momentum
"1 have to give my offensive line
a lot of credit McPhail said. "That
play was textbook, exactly the way you
draw it up on the chalk board. Basi-
cally, 1 just try to take what the de-
fense gives me and pick my holes to
get as many yards as 1 can every play
McPhail got into the flow after
two early miscues, fumbling the foot-
ball twice on ECU's opening posses-
sion, losing one. The fumbles didn't
concern offensive coordinator and
running back's coach Todd Berry.
"We stressed to our football team
how important that first drive was and
it was disapointing for it to end on
the fumble Berry said. "Nobody feels
worse about that, obviously, than
Jerris does. It was just a matter of
time though before he broke some-
Wideout Mitchell Galloway ex-
tended the Pirate lead to 27-3 when
he scored on a short option run run-
ning behind McPhail five minutes
later. He lined up at the tailback posi-
tion for the second of two scores for
the versatile junior from Bennettsville,
He opened the scoring with an
81 yard catch and run late in the first
quarter. He sprinted past CMU
cornerback Shawn Williams to key a
96 yard drive that lasted four plays
and :38 seconds.
Chad Holcomb was impressive
hitting a career-high field goals from
26, 23 and 30 yards and was perfect
on extra points in one of his best days
as a Pirate. The junior placekicker has
been the subject of criticism after a
rough sophomore season, going 8-13
for the year. The highly touted
placekicker seemed to have regained
his confidence Saturday. �
Jason Nichols made several spar-
kling punt returns this game return-
ing three punts for 74 yards includ-
ing a long of 66 yards. Two were called
back because of illegal blocks called
on the punt return team. Nichols led
all Pirate receivers of the day, catch-
ing four passes for 43 yards.
He even got involved in the pass-
ing game in the second quarter throw-
ing a spiral to freshman split end Troy
Smith. The pass was ruled incomplete
after Smith caught the football out of
bounds. The play was one of a couple
of trick plays Logan pulled out of the
play book, faking a field goal and a
successful onside kick to regain pos-
session prior to McPhail's long run.
Matt Levine kicked it in the air
far up the right sideline lofting the
ball up for the tailback to catch in the
air. After a long argument between
Steve Logan and the officials over
whether the ball had traveled 10 yards
possession was awarded to the Pi-
"That was one of two arguments
I have won in 22 years of coaching
football Logan said. "The other one
was as an eighth grade football coach.
I'm just glad those officials had the
guts to reverse themselves and make
the correct call
Marcus Crandell turned in a solid
performance going 12-29 from the air
for 177 yards and the one touchdown
pass to Galloway. He did toss two in-
terceptions but only has three for the
year and has six touchdowns and 754
yards for the season as well.
Inside the all-important red zone,
Crandell struggled to put his team in
the end zone as his receivers had
trouble getting open in the shortened
space of the back 20. CMU does fea-
ture an outstanding group of lineback-
ers and secondary performers, the
keys to goal line defense.
Butkus Award candidate Mark
Libiano had another excellent game,
surpassing 300 career tackles with
nine coming against CMU. The senior
from Easton, Pa. had nine tackles in-
cluding two sacks, containing solid
CMU tailback Damon Tolbert (29 car-
ries, 126 yards).
"It's great from an individual
standpoint, but our defense must get
better Libiano said. "It's a team
game, and we have to get back to play-
ing like we did last year
Other standouts for the Pirate
defense that allowed just 284 total
yards were inside linebacker Carlos
Brown (9 tackles), Travis Darden (two
fumble recoveries) and Bernard
Lackey (six tackles, 1 INT). Freshmen
defensive linemen Rod Coleman,
Tohma McMillan and Mondell Corbett
all showed promise for the future.
Coleman showed an outstanding
speed rush in relief of outside line-

The rain did not wash these Pirate cheerleaders away, only the Central Michigan
defense slipped in mud at a nearly sold out Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
Runners finish strongly
(SID) - The ECU freshmen con-
tinued to lead the cross country team
for the second straight meet, as new-
comers Suzanne Bellamy and Jeremy
Coleman were the first Pirates to cross
the finish line.
Coming off a strong finish at last
week's PembroKe State Invitational,
Coleman paced the Pirates with a Smile
time of 25:27 and a 23rd place finish.
Jamie Mance continued to run well, fin-
ishing in 29th place with a 26:01.
"This was the Pirates best effort
so far this season assistant men's coach
Mike Ford said "We move closer each
meet to beating our arch rival UNC
Wilmingtoi "
Lady Pirates Emily Linnemeier out
kicked two UNC Wilmington runners
in the last few meters to give the Pi-
rates the third place finish in its race.
Bellamy grabbed a 13th place finish to
edge out teammates Karen Reinhard
and Dava Rhodes who crossed the line
in 14th and Ibth places, respectively.
Belamy's 3.1 mile time of 18:25 is
the fifth fastest women's time in ECU
history. Freshman Kerri Ha'rtling was
the fourth Lady Pirate to break the tape
with an 18:41.
Both teams are idle next weekend,
as they prepare for races on SepL 30.
The men will race at the Greensboro
Invitational and the women travel to
Blacksburg, Va. to participate in the
Virginia Tech Quad Meet

but loyal crowd of fans. The Pirates play the lllini this Saturday in Illinois.
Men's soccer team still
looking for first win
Cralg Perrott
Staff Witter
The Pirate soccer team went up
against two national powerhouses this
weekend, only to come up just short of
On Friday, the 18th ranked soccer
team in the nation, George Mason Uni-
versity, visited Greenville and took home
a 2-0 wia The Patriots scored at the 2926
mark when a deflected corner kick was
headed in for the score. From then on it
was anybody's game as the Pirates held
CMU in check until 2:29 left in the last
period of play, when George Mason
scored the final goal of the contest
After losing to Old Dominion last
week 7-1, the Pirates(0�0, 0-30 CAA)
showed a lot of intestinal fortitude Fri-
day, holding the Patriots to the two point
Coach Wil Wiberg said his team
played with a lot of heart
"They have mote skilled players
than us, but I think we played with a lot
of heart and desire Head Coach Wiberg
said. "I'm real proud of our effort To
come back from losing 7-1 and put this
kind of effort in shows me that this is a
championship team
The Pirates had chances to tie the
game with a free kick and two corner
kicks in GMU territory.
"We have to take advantage of our
half-chances Wilberg said. "A half-
chance being one that's not a pure shot
on goal but you make it into something.
We've got to take more risks in the at-
tacking third and try to finish. Two goals
in five games isn't going to win too many
Wiberg commended the defensive
efforts of sophomore goalie Jay Davis
who finished the game with eight saves
and senior co-captain Marc Mullin who
said the team played hard.
"I think we played with a lot of in-
tensity for the most part, but fatigue got
to us in the latter part of the game
Mullin said.
The Pirates have seemed to play to
their level of competition this season,
shortening the margin of victory against
their higher i-anked opponents. Wiberg
said the season has been filled with ups
and downs.
"I think the season so far has been
a roller coaster he said. "Sometimes
we'll be in the
game, sometimes
we won't. We
tend to make little
mistakes where
other teams can
"But I think,
for the most part,
we got some of
the kinks out We
picked it up a
level and we gave
it a good run for
it, but unfortu-
nately they were
just a little bit bet-
It was the fourth shut-out in five
games for George Mason.
The Pirate booters saw action again
on Sunday against defending CAA con-
ference champions James Madisoa The
Dukes were ranked 14th in the nation
going into Sunday's game, but the Pi-
rates once again held their own, losing
to JMU by another 2-0 score. Wiberg is
proud of his team's ability considering
the vaulted level they are playing against
"I'm disappointed to lose, but I'm
very proud of the effort Wiberg said.
"Obviously, we're not scoring, and we've
got to work on that but we're playing
good defense. We've lost four games by
one or two to nothing.
"We're playing in the Colonial Ath-
letic Association against teams that have
established themselves as premier teams
"I think we played
with a lot of
intensity for the
most part, but
fatigue got to us in
the latter part of
the game
� Marc Mullin
senior co-captain
in the country
James Madison finished 10th in the
nation last year and is undefeated this
season, thus far.
"We know it's a big task, but we're
going to just keep plugging away
Wiberg said. "We're going to surprise
somebody as long as we keep working
hard. The guys gave a great effort today,
and thats all I ask
JMU scored 11:57 into the first half
and put another
point on the board
with 31 minutes left
to play in the game.
Davio had another
stellar performance
with nine saves.
"It was a tough
game Davis said.
"We just couldn't
put it in the back of
the net We had a
couple of good op-
portunities, but just
couldn't finish
The Pirates
outplayed the Dukes
in the last 20 of play,
a trend that has continued throughout
every game this season, with the excep-
tion of the Old Dominion game.
"That's what being a member of the
Pirate soccer team is about giving a good
effort Wiberg stated
The Pirates are taking on a diffi-
cult schedule this year, playing all of
their conference games within the first
month of competition. September has
also included a trip to Chapel Hill to
play no. 4 North Carolina. The slate
doesn't get much easier this Wednes-
day, as the Pirates make the trip to Rich-
mond to take on Virginia Common-
wealth University.
"They're pretty quick especially on
the artificial turf, so it's going to be a
tough game for us, but hopefully we can
get a 'W Davis said.
ECU played in "The Zone"
Brad Nelson
Staff Writer
Ladies soccer here Wed. at 4 against ODU
In golf it's said that a man who
can putt is a match for anyone. After
all, it's on the putting green that a
golfer actually scores and sinking a
few putts can mean the difference
between and a good round a medio-
cre one. Like golf, football also has
its version of the putting green. It's
inside the opponents 20 yard line and
is known by players, coaches and fans
alike as the "red zone
The ability to consistently score
from within this zone is one of the
variables that separates a goo' team
from a mediocre one and a great team
from a good one. That is not to say
that ECU is a mediocre team. Far
from it. But in Saturday's match-up
with 1994 Mid-American Conference
champion Central Michigan Univer-
sity, the Pirates entered this zone six
times resulting in just 13 points.
"I think that was more of a credit
to their linebackers and defensive
backs play more than anything else
Head Coach Steve Logan said. "Their
defensive line didn't give us much of
a test, but in the red zone they aren't
much of a factor anyway. I don't
think there was any problem with our
play calling, it was just a matter of
us executing better
Even though the Pirates
struggled inside the 20 Saturday
against CMU, it nonetheless pro-
duced at least one considerable
bright spot Kicker Chad Holcomb
was three for four on Saturday, hit-
ting on field goals of 26, 33 and 30
yards respectively and was a perfect
three for three on PAT's. Holcomb
just missed on a 46-yard attempt that
would have been his career best.
Saturday's workout should give
Holcomb a much needed shot of con-
fidence after an eight for 13 perfor-
mance in 94.
With Illinois and West Virginia
looming just ahead, Holcomb could
by called on by Logan to win a game
in the closing seconds, and should
now have the confidence that he can
do just that
Another bright spot in
Saturday's game was the perfor-
mance of receiver Mitchell Galloway,
who scored the only touchdown gen-
erated from within the 20-yard line
with a two-yard TD run from the h-
back position in the third quarter.
Galloway, along with running back
Jerris McPhail, proved throughout
the game that ECU's speed was too
much for the CMU defense. McPhail
had a career game with 178 rushing
yards, including a 70-yard TD run on
the opening drive of the second half.
McPhail continuously utilized his
breakaway speed to get outside and
turn the corner on the CMU defense.
With the exception of Galloway's
two-yard TD run, the Pirate offense
generally elected to throw the ball
inside tie CMU 20, with fairly disap-
pointing results. Pirate fans, however,
may soon be very thankful for this
lackluster perfc. mance inside the 20s
on Saturday. I mean, the score was
30-17. and it wasn't even that close.
Chad Holcomb may also be very
thankful. After all, he's the one who
has to boot that 40-yard field goal to
beat the lllini, right? v

clearly outplayed the Chippewas show-
ing no signs of complacency after the
big win over Syracuse and are look-
