Researchers at ECU's School of

a gene that could help people suffer-

Report conflicts with survey
A recent "Pirates on the
Street" survey conducted randomly
on campus suggests that students
are very environmentally aware and
believe recycling is a worthwhile
project, yet a detailed report pre-
pared by the North Carolina Office
of Waste Reduction in Raleigh
shows those students may not prac-
tice what they preach.
According to the most recent
annual report concerning recycling
among North Carolina state agen-
cies, ECU is ranked the highest (in
terms of the total number of
pounds recycled) of the 18 state
universities who reported having a

According to Armistead and to
report data, institutional materials
make up almost 90 percent of the
materials recycled by the university.
Institutional materials are defined
as those materials mainly handled
by the campus maintenance staff.
These materials include cardboard,
yard wastes, food service wastes
and other non-student recyclable
"What's peculiar about the
large amount of institutional mate-
rials recycled, is that 70 percent of
those materials are generated by
the construction projects on cam-
pus, and another large percentage
comes from yard wastes
terials recycled, those materials for
which students hold the most re-
sponsibility, are concerned. ECU re-
ported 416.675 pounds compared to
the 618,752 pounds reported by
N.C. State and UNC-Chapel Hills re-
port of 1,854,860 pounds.
At 8,612 pounds, aluminum cans
make up the largest percentage of in-
dividual materials recycled at ECU.
while UNC-Chapel Hill reported hav-
ing recycled 45,920 pounds. In fact,
even Appalachian State, whose stu-
dent enrollment is nowhere near
ECU's. reported having recycled
13,667 pounds of aluminum cans.
Of the four other universities
mentioned, ECU recycled the least
amount of glass containers (only
5,720 pounds), while UNC Chapel
Hill recycled the most, outweighing
our total by about 280,000 pounds.
"So if our ranking was based on
what students recycled Armistead
added, "we would be pretty close to

"Basically what it all amounts to
is training ourselves Gullihur said.
"Sometimes it takes more effort than
we are willing to exercise because we
tend to get lazy. It's so much easier
to just throw everything into the
trash than it is to .separate plastic
from paper and so on.
"Housekeepers do a good job of
trying to separate the things that are
put into the trash cans in the resi-
dence halls, but it's really not up to
them. We each need to play our part
if we want to see an improvement
Gullihur also said more recycling
bins should be available, especially
for plastics and glass, but first stu-
dents should make sure they are us-
ing current bins.
"There's just not much incentive
among students to recycle said Joy
Hudson, the recycling coordinator for
Pitt County, it's just not very con-
venient since there are not bins for

Hudson said she feHs the uni-
versity needs to do more to encour-
age recycling, and that students
should be made aware of all of the
ways they can help.
According to Hudson, the
Greenville community is a leader in
recycling. The city's recycling pro-
gram has won awards on both the

student, to get

The world is getting old, and we've got to take bet-
ter care of it.
I know that's nearly a cliche these days. I must
admit, I'm damn tired of hearing about it. The mes-
sage is delivered so earnestly (and so often) that it's
almost as annoying as Sally Struthers starving kids
spot. I know the few occasions I've had to watch an
episode of Ted Turner's insipid "Captain Planet" car-
toon have made me want to go out and dump some
crude oil on a wildlife preserve.
Be that as it may, the anti-pollution message is true.
We've really got to watch ourselves. The more we pol-
lute the Earth, the closer we get to some kind of bi-
zarre Road Warrior style apocalypse, a world where
people fight over such precious resources as water and
One way everybody can participate in this effort to
save the nlanet is to recycle. Recycling cuts down on
both pollution and the waste of the Earth's resources.
But hey, ECU has a great recycling record, right?
Well, see, apparently that's only because of all the
construction that is going on. The construction com-
pany is recycling like a madman, dumping everything
it can into the recycling bin.
The students, however, are apparently just big slobs.
We don't recycle nearly enough, despite the fact that
we're all big-brain college folks who know all about
that Road Warrior pollution process. We're supposed
to know better.
You'd think, with all the beer that gets consumed
around here, we would be the kings of recycling.
Bottles and cans are two of the biggest parts of the
recycling business, and we the students of ECU are a
recycling gold mine.
I know, I know. When you're stumbling around on
clean-up patrol the morning after, the fate of the Earth
is the farthest thing from your mind. That's why you
prepare to recycle before your head feels like it's go-
ing to split open like an overripe melon.
Get an extra trashcan for recycling. Put a basket-
ball net over it. That wav, when you're crawling around
on all fours trying to collect stray cans, you can just
toss them in and make a game of it for your beer-addled
I won't even go into all the paper that gets wasted
around here, but suffice it to say we could all have a
better track record there, as well.
So get off your recycling butts, ECU! unless you
want to live in a Road Warrior world, you must change
your lazy ways. And no offense, but 1 don't think many
of us would look very good in those skimpy leather
bondage suits those post-apocalypse people favor

The best way to screw up ideas
In the 1960s America was faced
with the biggest revolution it had
faced in almost 100 years. There was
a need of change. The purpose of that
change was to right the path our na-
tion had steered since the Civil War.
It was a chance to, once and for all,
protect the rights of all men and
women. At the center of this move-
ment was the Voting Rights Act of
The Act was originally con-
structed to protect minorities voting
privileges from the corruption of lo-
cal government. It outlawed discrimi-
natory policies such as literacy test-
ing. This type of reform is good and
definitely well overdue (almost 200
years to be more exact).
Unfortunately, in this day and era
people have a bad habit of abandon-
ing the spirit of the laws and replac-
ing them with their versions of the
letter of the laws. This is best seen in
what has been done with the above
mentioned Voting Rights Act of 1965.
When exercised as it was in-
tended, it was effective. Between 1964
and 1969 the number of blacks regis-
tered to was in the South more than
doubled. Up until 1963 less than 100
black officials had ever been elected
in the South, by 1973 there were 191
in Mississippi alone.
In 1982 Congress decided to re-
interpret it and thus manipulate the
letter of the law. Through this manipu-
t is bad because
it takes large
portions of many
places them into
a single unit
lation they were able to show that
certain groups were in fact entitled
to political set asides, areas that they
were sure to win. Not only were they
given areas, but it was stressed that it
was the federal government's respon-
sibility to ensure that quotas for these
offices were met It was felt that the
only way to prove that the minorities
were effective in using their voting
rights was to have it proven through
The problem with this is that it
forces the American people into the
ignorant belief that people of the same
race must all vote the same way. For-
tunately, the Supreme Court has seen
the light and shot down several of
these districts. In 1993 the Supreme
Court shot down the North Carolina
voter, redistricting a plan that created
a zone that was 160 miles long anc
for the better part of its length it was
no wider than the stretch of Interstate
85 which it followed.
This ruling, according to Justice
O'Connor, "Political Apartheid" was
The same was found in July when
they ruled against a similar plan from
Georgia. Justice Thomas, in agreemenl
with the majority, stated that it was
"an offensive and demeaning assump
tion that voters of a particular race
will, because of their race, have the
same political preference
If anything, this minority-major
ity districting can only hurt the
groups. In general, it is bad because
it takes large portions of many com
munities and places them into a single
unit where they can no longer affect
the other groups.
It is fair to assume that the GOP
would be well benefitted by this move
because it takes large predominately
democrat supporting sections of mi-
norities out of four or five districts
and places them in one. They lose the
one district but are allowed to carry
the others easily through the void
The idea of doing away with mi-
nority-majority will not mean that
minorities will lose seats, it will mean
that there will be access to more of
To the Editor:
Most of the stereotypes that Jus-
tin Conrad suggested Greeks have to
deal with are ones that they create
themselves - through their words and
actions. Not until some part of their
system is challenged do we hear the
positive qualities of their organiza-
tions. I live in a dorm for three years
and had numerous neighbors in so-
rorities. Although not everything I
heard was negative, most of it was. I
would hear women complaining about
upcoming charities and "stupid func
tions But the most common subjects
were drunkenness and sex resulting
from their socials. I simply think that
rather than attacking those who hold
the negative attitudes because of
these stereotypes, that it would be
more effective to go to the source of
the problem and have the members
of the organizations promote the
more positive aspects.
Gabbing about gossip
To the Editor:
This is a letter of official and
public apology to Coach Van Sant, Mr.
and Mrs. Leggett and all the people
who work so hard to make the East
Carolina Pirates football concessions
program the great success that it is.
First of all, I would like to apologize
for all the silly things I wrote in my
letter to the editor of The East Caro-
linian in the issue of Thursday, Sept
7. We, the concessionaires now have
the contract that is fair to all con-
cerned, thanks to the efforts of Coach
Van Sant who generously restructured
our contract for this football season
accordingly. We now are given 30
cents for the $2 selling price of every
soda we sell at the football games.
I am reminded of the great All-
American football player, George
Koonce who recently gave $10,000
to the Pirate Club. George, who has
gone on the NFL as one of the great-
est football players of all times, made
this sacrifice to help the East Caro-
lina Pirates athletics program, by so
doing, George has given back some-
thing to oui school that gave him such
an excellent start in his football ca-
reer. Think about what we as students
could do to help the East Carolina
pirates to be the very best in the Na-
Here's what you and I, and ev-
eryone here at East Carolina Univer-
sity can do at least four more Satur-
day afternoons this fall. Get the East
Carolina Pirate spirit of the East,
come to the football game to cheer
the Pirates football team on to the
Peach Bowl again this year. Buy a
soda of your choice from me, Rich-
ard Becker, of any of the young
people at he football game who work
there as concessionaires, and a bag
of peanuts. We sell large cups full of
America's most popular sodas such
as Coke, Pepsi, Sprite and Mountain
Dew along with large bags of deli-
cious roasted peanuts for your en-
joyment and, to help the East Caro-
lina Pirates build a winning athletic
program. So, here is your chance to
do your part as a loyal and true East
Carolina Pirate football fan. I am
looking forward to seeing you at

30. Thank you very much for your

This article is about sex! Well,
in a way it is. Okay, this article is
actually about talk shows and their
topics. You might be thinking, "how
could he write an entire article on
talk shows Well let me put it to
you this way, have you ever turned
on the television in the morning
and not seen two or three different
shows all talking about sex?
There are so many talk shows
that I can not even list them all in
this article. I would have to have a
page devoted just to this article to
show you how many there really
Talk shows began with pio-
neers such as Phil Donahue. And
now we have the Danny Bonaduce
show and that girl, Gabrielle, from
"90210 I can not turn on the TV
for one minute without finding
some talk show that has a topic
involving sex, sin or scandal.

rimental to our brains. Do 1 really

prime example of how talk shows
go too far: The "Geraldo" show. I'm
not talking about his everyday
shows (which are bad enough as it
is), 1 mean the one specific episode
where he helped provoke a fight
This infamous episode in
Geraldo's second season brought
him international fame for having
his nose broken. These are the kind
of stunts that talk shows hosts do
to get the ratings.
I almost guarantee you that if
these "hosts" tried getting real act-
ing jobs, they would find them-
selves out on the street Real ac-
tors find themselves having to
study and research a certain part.
Then they have to rehearse a writ-
These "hosts" come out with
these whacked-out ideas and then
bring on guests to grill them for
juicy gossip. A prime example of
this is when Geraldo brought on
news writers for The National
Enquirer. The sole purpose of this
episode was to pass on gossip about
the stars of today's movies and TV.
Can't these people get lives or
real jobs? I don't find it appealing
to sit down and watch a breast im-
plant on TV. If that interests you,
then watch the "Gabrielle" show.
Again, you might have a ques-
tion like this: "How do you know
so much about these talk shows if
you hate them so much?" That's
exactly what you were going to ask
next wasn't it? Well, the answer is
quite simple really, "Talk Soup
Perhaps the only true show on day-
time or any other time on television,
"Talk Soup's" sole purpose is to
preview and recap talk shows. Yet,
they do not just show you the high-
lights, they maKe fun of the shows
It is nice to see that someone
else in this world besides myself sees
that these shows go too far. I know

Saturday at noon they will cheer the team to victory against West Virginia University.
Volleyball team digs in for win
Tuesday night, the Lady Pi-
rates turned Williams Arena from
a volleyball court into a battle field.
After five intense matches of play,
the Pirates finally won a victory
from the UNC Wilmington visitors.
While the players waited for
the first match to begin, they seem
relaxed and were smiling. The team
had a definite feeling of confidence
in themselves as players and as a
team that comes through in their
attitude towards one another.
With the completion of the Na-
tional Anthem, Head Coach Kim
Walker collected the Pirates for a
quick pep-talk The coach took on
an air of seriousness, a more tran-
quil, focused, hawk-like character
than the easy-going coach I've in-
terviewed over the phone and be-
The first initial volley landed
in favor of Wilmington, but the Pi-
rates struck back and took control
of the ball with the second serve.
Each time the Pirates won a vol-
ley, the team exploded in unison
with a loud "Yeah Their yells
served as an invigorating pat on the
back as well as a means to intimi-
date their opponent.
The Pirates were fresh and
powerful in the first match. As soon
as the team began to show a lack
of control on the ball, they recoiled
and struck back across the net with
fierce precision. The Pirates were
personified by their spirit and cel-
ebrated each score with high fives
and they scream, "Out together
when the Wilmington ball flew over
its estimated mark.
The Pirates took the first
match with considerable ease, win-
The second match took off at
full speed. The Pirates were forced
to dive for attempted kills sent over
by Wilmington, and they returned
the favor, earning the first point.
With a victory under their belt,
Walker began to shed a few smiles
and was not afraid to visibly show
displeasure for inaccurate line calls.
After an initial lead by the Pirates,
Wilmington was able to bring it to
With a grueling struggle for
power on the score board,
Wilmington called a time-out with
10-11 on the board in order to bring
in a new server. Possession of the
volley changed hands four times
without a point scored, until ECU
was able to tie it up before taking
an additional time out. Unfortu-
nately, the match ended quickly
with a loss for the Pirates at 11-15.
By the third match, players on
both teams were beginning to tire.
ECU began to have trouble with
their serve. The Pirates had a frus-
trating struggle to catch up to
Wilmington, who stood at ieast five
points ahead for the majority of the
playing time. After a streak of mis-
takes, ECU began a fierce climb up
the score board and took a time out
As the score tottered at 13-12,
coach Walker sat tentatively, as if
she were a scientist watching and
waiting over a delicate experiment.
Then, with 13-14 on the board.
Wilmington took a 'time out' and
came back to win in the next vol-
The Pirates knew they had to
win the next set to stay in the
match and that's what they did. The
score was evenly weighted through-
out most of the match with ties on
the board at 7-7 and 12-12 that took
a long time to break: ECU eventu-
ally won the match with 15-12.
The fifth and game winning set
was a rally-scoring match in which
each play could mean a score for
either team. The excitement of the
match doubled as the playing be-

and all-state awards. That same
dedication he had in high school
has carried over into his playing
years here at ECU.
To date, the men's soccer team
is 1-7. with 12 regular season
matches left until the start of the
Colonial Athletic Association
Championships which begin Nov.
For this urban and regional
planning major, he would just like
to continue playing soccer for this
season and next season, (which
will be his last year of eligibility).

IRONICALLY, THE TIME TO START
SAVING FOR RETIREMENT IS WHEN IT LOOKS
LIKE YOU CAN LEAST AFECRD IT.
Can't afford to save for retirement?
The truth is. you can't afford not to.
Not when you realize that your retirement
can last 20 to 3o years or more. You'll want
to live at least as comfortably then as you
do now. And that takes planning.
By starting to save now, you can take
advantage of tax deferral and give your
money time to compound and grow.
Consider this: Set aside just $100 each
month beginning at age So and you can
accumulate over $172 ,109 by the time
vou reach age o5. But wait ten years and
you'll have to budget $219 each month
to reach the same goal.
Even if you're not counting the years to
retirement, you can count on TIAA-CREF
to help you build the future you deserve-
with flexible retirement and tax-deterred
annuity plans, a diverse portfolio of invest-
ment choices, and a record of personal
service that spans y5 years.
Over 1.7 million people in education and
research put i IAA-CREF at the top of
their list for retirement planning. Why not
Call today and learn how simple it is
to build a secure tomorrow when you

CHEER from page 11
on the squad for four years and I'm
just getting those things down
There is another facet to
cheerleading than leading the football
team to victory, and that's competing
with other cheerleaders.
The Pirates are involved with the
Universal Cheerleading Association
(UCA). and compete with cheerlead-
ers from universities around the na-
tion annualy. The first round of
competetion submits a videotape of
the team's performance. The teams
are then ranked regionally, (the Pi-
rates placed sixth in the southeast last
year), and a certain number of quali-
fiers make it to the finals.
Last year the finals were held in
Orlando. Florida. ECU placed 14th in
the nation among such schools as
Tennessee, Kentucky and South Caro-
lina who offer full scholarships for
their cheerleading teams. ECU pro-
vides no financial support for it's

cheerleading is the trips you get to
go on said Sawyer.
Besides going to Orlando last
year, the squad traveled with the foot-
ball team to Auburn. Trips to Ten-
nessee and Illinois highlight the sea-
son for the cheerleaders in 1995.
Pee Dee the Pirate is also a vi-
tal part of the cheerleading team.
Brian Barbour is one of four people
who make Pee Dee come to life ev-
"It takes a lot of dedication
Barbour said. "It's really hot inside
that suit, you can't see, and it's hard
to breathe. But, it's worth it. Pee Dee
represents the school and he is the
number one fan for East Carolina
Besides physical endurance, it
takes a lot of creativity to be a mas-
cot. You have to pump up the crowd
when the team is winning, and en-
tertain them when they're losing. Ac-
cording to Barbour, Pee Dee is the
personification of fun.
"If it wasn't for Pee Dee, I
wouldn't be in school said Barbour
For all the hard work that Pee
Dee and the cheerleaders put into
what they do, all they ask for in re-
turn is a little respect
"I wish people would give us
more respect, from the students to
the administrative officesaid TJ.

Rachel Atkinson, a senior, has
swam for four years and hopes to
repeat last year's conference perfor-
mance in her final year.
T hope we win the conference
again because it is my senior year
Atkinson does the Kobe regi-
men because of the satisfaction she
gets through winning.
Sandra Ossmann, a sophomore,
is in her second season with the
"I think the best part is win-
ning Ossmann said. "Last year we
won the conference and I hope we
do it again
Being surrounded by a lot of
seasoned talent does not intimidate
"It makes me admire Rachel for
sticking with it all these years she
said. "I hope I can do that also
The team has to get up three
mornings a week and swim from 6-
8 a.m. to get in extra miles before
the more rigorous afternoon work-
"It's not my favorite thing to get
up at 5:30 a.m. in the morning and
jump into a cold pool Ossman said.
Vitier is not a morning person.
"The worse part is waking up
when it is all cold outside and get-
ting into freezing water instead of
staying in a warm bed Vitier said.
Moody says the worst part of
swimming is the extra laps.
"Probably the worst part is to
try and convince yourself that you
can go one more set when you don't
have the energy to go any further,
but you do anyway Moody said.
The team's first meet is Oct. 3
where they will compete against
each other in a pentathalon. Each
swimmer will predict his or her own
time in five events. In between each
100 meter set, the swimmer will get
a 12 minute rest Before finishing,
each athlete will have to do the but-
terfly, freestyle, breast and back-
stroke. Points will be awarded to
those who come closest to their
goals and beat them. The one clos-
est to predicting his or her perfor-
mance will win. The pentathlon
starts at 3 p.m. at Minges pool.

cise. Time-outs changed from a re-
laxing break away from intense
playing, into a swarming hive with
the energy of a NASCAR pit stop.
ECU held Wilmington on the
board at 13, climbing from 9 to 14
with three real points and took a
time out. Wilmington then tied it
up at 14-14, leaving the next volley
to win it all. The crowd and side-
lines moved to the edge of their
seats as the last serve is made and
Wilmington hits the ball out of
bounds. The crowd exploded to
their feet screaming for the victory.
After the game, Melanie
Richards, who totaled 33 kills, said,
