Around the State
(AP) - A seven-year-old pro-
gram to bring art to the public has
been scrapped, leaving unfinished
works statewide and generating
almost as much debate as the con-
troversial program itself.
The battle is over whether
publicly funded sculptures, paint-
ings, carvings, etchings and other
works will adom state government
projects already underway. The
projects that were on the drawing
board before the program, which
has cost $400,000 so far, were axed
in this year's legislative session.
(AP) - The new director of the
University of North Carolina's
Black Cultural Center sees hope
for stalled plans to erect a free-
standing building for the group.
But he may be the only one.
Administrators at the Univer-
sity of North Carolina of Chapel
Hill have received $1.8 million in
donations for the free standing
center - less than one-quarter of
the $8 million slated to be raised.
Around the Country
(AP) - The Rockefellers want
to keep a hand in Rockefeller Cen-
ter after all.
An investment group that in-
cludes David Rockefeller and the
investment firm Goldman, Sachs
& Co. announced late Sunday in
New York it was offering $297
million for control of the landmark
office complex.
The proposal comes just a
month after the center's Japanese
controlled owner - in which the
Rockefeller family trusts have a
stake - announced it would give
up the property, which has been
mired in bankruptcy since May.
(AP) - Airports nationwide
are stepping up precautions
against terrorist attacks to the
highest level since the Persian Gulf
War. No specific threats were cited.
Transportation Secretary
Federico Pena issued the order
Sunday - the same day a group
of militant Muslims were found
guilty in a New York terrorism
Around the World
(AP) - So your boss, like
Shakespeare's merchant Shylock,
zealously demands his 0.45 kilo-
grams of flesh? Beware: give him
2.54 centimeters and he'll take
1.6 kilometers.
Alas, such phrases could be
in Britain's future. After more
than nine centuries of pounds,
inches and gallons, the sceptered
isle is obeying a European Union
decree and going metric.

Pirate football makes history
Field goal sends
West Virginia
home defeated
Craig Perrott
Senior Writer
East Carolina denied West Virginia
one last scoring opportunity in the wan-
ing seconds of play to beat the Moun-
taineers 23-20 Saturday afternoon within
the friendly confines of Dowdy-Ficklen
It was the first time ECU has de-
feated West Virginia in the nine-game
history of the series, dating back to 1970.
ECU believed the outcome of the
game had been determined, as quarter-
back Marcus Crandell kneeled the ball
with 1:03 left in the game. On the next
play from scrimmage, however, a West
Virginia nose guard slapped the ball out
of ECU center Kevin Wiggin's hands.
Crandell fumbled the ball, and West Vir-
ginia recovered with 44 seconds left to
play. The Pirate defense rose to the oc-
casion, and held off a WVU offense that
moved the ball well in the second half.
It was a scare for the Pirates, who
only scored three second half points af-
ter being up 20-9 at half-time. ECU al-
lowed the Mountaineers back in the
game, as WVU tied the score early in
the fourth quarter. After sputtering most
of the half, the Pirate offense knew it
had to make things happen.
"It seemed like the offense knew we
had to go down there and score
Crandell said. "We put everything behind
us and just went down there and did it I
credit their defense.
"They just started playing great
defense, and we weren't executing and
making plays like we were at the begin-
ning of the game. We were a little lacka-
daisical out there on the field
Place-kicker Chad Holcomb kicked
the game-winning field goal to cap the
final ECU scoring drive, after missing an
extra point earlier in the game.
"It was my only chance I've ever had
to kick a game winner Holcomb said.
"We had so many chances to kick a game-
winner last year, but we'd go for it and
never seemed to win it
"It was just a good operation by my
holder Eddie Crabtree and snapper Ja-
son Shell for that final field goal. I'm glad
we could get it through
Head Coach Steve Logan opted to
settle for three points, instead of his usual
attack on the end zone.
"It's important for our whole foot-
ball team that the kid stepped up Logan
said. "It's the first time that he's been
under the pressure cooker, and I was
really happy for him. Maybe now he can
go to another level
ECU took it to the Mountaineers
early in the game, scoring on their first
play from scrimmage. Crandell connected
with wide receiver Larry Shannon for a
67 yard TD pass, after West Virginia drew
firstblood with a 33-yard field goal.

The smell of good food and
sounds of merriment filled the air
as ECU faculty members and celeb-
rities from the Greenville commu-

the Celebrity Chef Cook-out last
The festivities, which took
place at Mendenhall and Todd din-

dents and their celebrity chef serv-

paid the usual price during evening
meal hours on Thursday. But in-
stead of choosing from the usual
fair, student diners had a choice of
steak, chicken, corn-on-the-cob,
baked potatoes and several other
savory items served by their favor-

An ECU student's hard efforts
were recently rewarded with the
Governor's Award for Outstanding
Services Rendered to Home Health
and Hospice in Wayne Count) N.C.
Robyn H. Norwood-Lee is a full-
time student at ECU, works, keeps her
family together and volunteers her
spare time.
Raised in north Chicago, 111.
Norwood-Lee left her family and
friends in 1991 to make North Caro-
lina her home.
"I was just stepping out on a leap
of faith, I was just taking a chance (in
relocating) Norwood-Lee said. "I was
born and raised in Illinois and had
worked at Abbot Laboratories for nine
years. The youngest of seven, I left all

appeared to be easy for the social work

Norwood-Lee said she felt a need to
return to school once she moved to
North Carolina.
"The money I was making in Illi-
nois was great and I never would have
gone back to school if I had stayed

of paper
Norwood-Lee said she could not
find a job when she first moved to
Goldsboro, but volunteering her time
opened opportunities.
"I volunteered for one day in
Wayne Memorial Hospital Norwood-
Lee said. "After two days, I had a part-
time job in the lab as a phlebotomist
Norwood-Lee's husband, Tony
Lee, is also an ECU student
Currently she works in ECU's fi-
nance department with a work-study
program. If working, learning and rais-
ing a 13-year-old son from a previous
marriage were not enough, Norwood-
Lee continues to volunteer her time
which eventually led to her nomina-
tion for the Governor's Award.
"My dad died of cancer in March
of '93 she said. "I wanted to give
something back
Norwood-Lee has been volunteer-
ing for hospices in eastern North Caro-
lina for almost three years now and
remembers one patient who touched
her life.
"I took care of one patient for
more than a year, she was 20 years
old and she had terminal cancer
Norwood-Lee said. "I was averaging
four or five hours a week with this
Norwood-Lee remembered run-
ning errands, making videos and even
taking time off from work to spend
time with the girl.
"I went around the neighborhood
and video-taped Christmas lights so
she could see them she said. "I was
able to remain focused and be there
for her
Norwood-Lee's dedication to this
patient and continued support follow-
ing the patient's death in April lead
to her nomination. Because both of
her parents had died since Norwood-
Lee moved to North Carolina, she was
able to help the family with picking
out a casket, writing her obituary,
speaking at her funeral and even fixed
the girl's hair and make-up for the

much rather concentrate on the
negative than the positive.
"I know how all of you have seen
how the focus is on that one of ev-
ery four black men who goes to jail
Smith said. "Do you hear or read
about the black family that is to-
gether, with both parents, raising
successful children who go on to col-
lege to become doctors and lawyers?
"The family you see is the one
where the children sell drugs, the fa-
ther beats the mother who is on wel-
fare, and other such tragedies. What
we need to realize as Africans in
America is that wherever you are,
whatever you do, you are a represen-
tative of our people all over the coun-
try. Look where O.J. Simpson is
representing what the media thinks
of black men in America
Several times in her discussion,
Smith repeated that the black family
is in trouble. She said the condition
of the black family now stands in the
worst condition it has ever seen.
"There once was a time when we
as black people could look at TV and
see people acting crazy and killing
each other and say 'that's not us
But can we honestly say that now?"
Smith asked in a low, melancholy
voice. "People, what has happened
to our code of ethics?
"The black family is in trouble
she repeated. "The only way we will
be able to rise out of this den of op-
pression we have allowed ourselves
to sink into is to re-establish the fam-
ily, which is the very core of who we
are. We need to reclaim our children
- now while we still have the power
to do so
Smith used an old Ghanaian
proverb, "a man that does not tend
his soil will have no crop to stress
that our children are our crops, our
hope for tomorrow. She said the first
steps to restoring pride in all Ameri-
cans is to concentrate on the chil-
dren in our homes.
"Buy them books, and turn the
TV off. Read with your children. Fill
their heads with knowledge. Pray to-
gether so that you can move your
own mountains, and teach them that
God is at the center of our existence.
Most of all, begin to concentrate on
the positive Smith said.
Smith's lecture was the first of
the series of events planned for the
new Cultural Center which is located
in the renovated Bloxton House near
the center of campus. The Center will
be having an open house on Oct 20
to which students are invited to view
the new facilities. For more informa-
tion on the center or its programs,

Our View
The Pirate
football team
has no
students to
stand in line
to pick up
tickets, yet
we can't get
these same
students to
come out and
vote. What
are we
saying about
our elected
Class officers were elected last week by less than two percent
of the eligible voters - you the students. Three class presidents ran
unopposed as did a majority of the legislature. Is this representa-
tive democracy?
Representative democracy is about electing people to office
who will best serve their constituents. Campaigns promise a new
exchange of ideas. The best and brightest compete for those jobs
in an effort to serve. On election day, people choose who they
think will best benefit the university. But does a two percent vote
actually represent the student body?
This is in a perfect world. In our skewed microcosm of the
universe no such democracy exists and it is our fault as students.
The system works like this.
Candidates run virtually unopposed for office. If students are
even aware there is a student government, they don't know who
their representative is. Because there is no competition, a neo-
Nazi, a Ted Kennedy liberal, a Jesse Helms conservative or some-
one who has a name like Newt may represent a residence hall with
his interests counter to his constituents.
Instead of having competition to bring out a fair exchange of
ideas, no new blood gets in. Candidates for office promise the
same platforms year after year. We've all heard the same stale
promises about representing the student voice, better communica-
tion with the administration, better parking and lowering fees. As
such we elect a complacent and unoriginal legislature devoid of
any new ideas.
Since the legislature is not directly responsible to their con-
stituents, they are not challenged to do much of anything except
put another line on their resume.
The sad part is that we are all to blame. No one wants to get
involved, let alone vote. It is easy to point a finger at people at
least trying to serve and complaining about the bad job they are

After huge scandals like the Elbo incident last summer, it is
hard to imagine how we put these people in office. When candi-
dates run unopposed for office we are to blame. We are to blame
because no one stepped forward to challenge an apathetic system.
Less than two percent stepped forward last week to vote.
We have no room to complain when fees increase, when fresh-
men living on campus are required to have meal plans or when
parking spaces dissappear. Apathy and cynicism are dangerous
because they are breeding a society out of sync with its govern-
ECU did not always have a student government. If people don't
get actively involved, then the one we have will become weaker
and weaker. The students that make this school tick may soon
have no way to voice their concerns to the administration. With-
out that voice, any program despite student objection, can be put
in place.
Our student government has a lot of power. Not only is it the
formal representative to the administration, but it can be a power-
ful instrument of change. By becoming involved and at least vot-
ing, we can become part of the solution to make this university a
better place.

requires at least one presentation, and
many times all of my classes require
them. I even survived a Speech class
my freshman year, but 1 aged about
10 years that semester. You see, I'm a
writer, and writing is quite easy to
bullshit, but speaking in front of
people, well, that's just something
that, unless you're a born politician,
is just pretty hard to fake.
I thought about teaching,
thought a little about Law, but both
of those require lots of speaking in

Beware of the Fall Frustration Man
This week I had six tests, three
papers, four projects and an eight
o'clock class every day. Five of the six
tests required a blue bubble sheet I
am now having dreams about filling
in little tiny circles with my number
two pencil. Three of the five days in
which I had an eight o'clock class, I
also had a three hour night class. I
think I accidentally registered for 57
Fall has actually arrived and it's
not just the fall that appears on the
catalog. It seems almost criminal that
the construction isn't finished yet.
This is the perfect time for the uni-
versity to start taking pictures of flow-
ers and students standing around
seemingly talking about college stuff
for brochures and posters.
Ironically, fall is the best time to
do any thing but study, however, dur-
ing this slice of the semester, mid-
terms and papers seem to lurk around
every corner. For this reason we must
practice patience. We must not always
complain about being in school when
we could be outside.
Beware the little man in your
head that beacons you to ask your
hopefully accepting English teacher
"Can we go outside for class?" This
little man can bring you down. He
sneaks up on you when you least ex-
pect it and he clouds your mind.
This is the fall-frustration man.
Patrick Ware
Opinion Columnist
This little mart can
bring you down.
He sneaks up on
you when you
least expect it and
clouds your mind.
He loves good weather, anything but
studying and convincing his host to
displace anger on innocent bystand-
ers. Often he clouds the mind because
he makes us forget where we are.
College is a privilege. I don't want
to get angry here. This is not a rip-on-
the-attitude-of-students article, but it
is a remind-students-that-they-have
have article. And it is a help-them-to-
see-the-good-in-their-stress article as
well. Do they sound similar?
There is also a chance that stress
levels will plummet upon the under-
standing of this principle. Every day
we sit on nice benches with nice
clothes and nice scenery and complain
about how hard life is. Meanwhile, the
little man in our heads chalks up an-
other victory for plain and simple
human stupidity.
Why do we allow this part of our
brain to affect us so much? Why does
this one little part blind us from the
reality that the rest of the world can
see? It happens because we have no
choice. No matter what we do there
is always that little part of us that will
want to complain. That little part of
us that cannot care about reality be-
cause its only purpose is the bring us
It is now time to state the answer.
Can you hear the drum roll? vVe must
be thankful for our stresses because
the only way that we can ever change
is by the application of tranquillity
found in the aftermath of struggle.
The English version of that sentence
will be published next week.
Really, I simply mean to say, that
when we feel good after getting
through a hard time in our lives, and
we say to ourselves, "That wasn't so
bad after all. What was I worried
about?" We are using those struggles
for our own good.
There is a reason for our frustra-
tion, however invisible it may seem, but
it is not for us to understand. We must
accept it use it and be grateful that
we can be here on this pretty college
campus for four to set years of our lives-

Everyone who also has to speak prob-
ably looks like they're having a quiet
little private conversation with death.
You're not alone (although, true,
a hell of a lot of good that informa-
tion does you). Admit that you are
scared, then try to devise some way
around it Despite all the literature on
getting around this type of thing, I
recommend that you develop your
own personalized approach. However,
one thing that 1 think everyone would
agree upon is this: know what you are
going to talk about.
If you don't know what you're
going to talk about, or how you're
going to talk about it I recommend
the Sarajevan decoy job (bring your
running shoes). Plan your routine,
however you wish to plan it. Write an
outline, or notecards, or whatever is
going to work best for you. As bad as
I still am (and after all these years,
obviously, this is as good as I'm gonna'
get) the only thing that works for me
is to have some notecards and to read
them quietly to myself about 10 times
and then read them aloud about 10
times (getting someone to listen to
you would also really help).
Just try to make sure the presen-
tation flows right and sounds okay
coming from the old faltering voice.
Three things then: admit that your
fear is a natural reaction, know your
material as well as possible (this is
really not something to do at the last
minute), and practice what you want
to say.
That's the best I can offer. And
for those of you who are even more
phobic than myself, well, it might be
a good idea to bring an extra set of
notecards, for when you get up there
in front of the entire room and blow
your lunch all over the first onas. At
least it might get you out of the

To the Editor:
Tonight after dark, we almost
witnessed a tragedy involving a cyclist
and a van. This occurred at a small
grocery store near the university. The
van was turning west into traffic: the
cyclist was on the wrong side of the
street without a bicycle light. 1 seri-
ouslv doubt whether the �an driver
ever saw the bicycle, however, the bi-
cycle rider angerly sic .veiled at the
van because he had been "cut off" as
he narrowly missed running into the
vehicle. Fortunately the cyclist ap-
peared unhurt as he rode off.
Maybe cycle riders should be re-
quired to pass a test or have a license
before hf�jng avowed on the street
Motorists also have to accept heir
share of responsibility to avoid a mis-
hap. With increased traffic, especially
in the university area, both the mo-
torist and cyclist will have to follow
the rules of the road in order to avoid
another fatality in our city.

Staff Writer
,ui Attention all aspiring poets! Wil-
.iliam Trowbridge. an award-winning
uin poet who has published two books of
nc poetry and teaches creative writing
or: at Northwest Missouri State Univer-
se sity, is making an appearaice at ECU.
� Trowbridge will be the first visit-
�u ing poet sponsored by the ECU Po-
�3u etry Forum this season, and he will
mi conduct a poetry workshop as well as
give a reading of his own poetry to-
y day. The workshop will be on a "first
;�come, first serve" basis, and it will be
Jtheid in the Ceneral Classroom Build-
ing Room 1016 from 2-3 p.m. Anyone
vjijinterested in this workshop should
si bring around 10 copies of any poems
.nrthey wish to share and discuss. The
workshop is free and open to listen-
isders as well.
tn; Immediately following the work-
lushop at 4 p.m Trowbridge will read
from his own works of poetry, includ-
ing his latest book Oh, Paradise, in
the General Classroom Building, room
1031. According to Forum Director
Dr. Peter Makuk. Trowbridge's poetry
exhibits not only a serious side but
also a rare comic talent.
One such example of this come-
dic poetry uses America's favorite
monkey Ring Kong as a subject While
Makuk notes that these poems are
indeed "hilarious they are also "full
of social commentary" where the
reader gets King Kong's perspective
on late 20th Century human society.
But Trowbridge's humorous side
extends well beyond King Kong. His
poems look at the everyday culture
around us and criticizes what we oth-
erwise take for granted. Using com-
mon, everyday objects and phrases,
"he manages to universalize in a way
that we can all identify with says Dr.
Makuk. This is the true power of any
poet: to see the beauty and signifi-
cance in the mundane. Trowbridge's
poems are universal, yet personal.
The ECU Poetry Forum plans to
make events such as this an ongoing
thing. Two other poets, including
Betty Aycock, are schedi led to bring
their art to our fair campus. The Fo-
rum usually meets on the first and
third Thursday of each month
throughout the academic year in
Mendenhall Student Center in Room
248. This semester's schedule is as
follows: Oct 5 & 19 and Nov. 2 & 16.
If you're tired of complaining
about the lack of culture existing
within Greenville, then stop complain-
ing and start acting. Show your sup-
port to such worthy organizations as
the ECU Poetry Forum and inspire
our local talent to keep doing what
they do best.

If you're looking for some down-
home country fun this week, then join
Greenville in celebrating the arrival
of the Pitt County Fair.
Technically called The Pitt

Joe Ely
Letter to Laredo
It's been a few years since Joe
Ely has released anything, and with
Letter to Laredo he might finally
get some recognition outside of his
obscure cult following.
Ely falls in the gray area be-
tween country music and rock and
roll, so his listeners have to be open
minded. His music has a strong
country flavor that is aggressive
and rocking as well. Letter to
Laredo is his most slickly produced
work to date, but it's also more
mellow and countryfied than any-
thing he's done since "Down on the
Drag" in 79. For Letter, Ely has
replaced the rockabilly energy of
his recent works with the sophisti-
cation of Flamenco guitar. Letter
is a successful departure for him.
The thing that Ely does better
than anything else with his music is
tell a story. Maybe he was Homer in
a former life. In "Gallo Del Cielo"
and "Saint Valentine Ely paints us
portraits of tragic characters; he is
truly the master of telling the sto-
ries of losers. "Saint Valentine drove
a red Continental With a headlight
out and a dent in the side He
swore it wasn't his it was only a

He's also pretty good at sing-
inn "I'm-poor-but-I-can-love-you-bet-
ter-than-a-rich-man" ballads.
"Ranches and Rivers" and "All Just
To Get To You" are examples of this.
Ely sings a charming love song. "She
Finally Spoke Spanish to Me" is a
follow up to "She Never Spoke Span-
ish to Me" from his 1977 self-titled

'When I'm lyin' in my bed at
night . 1 don't wanna grow up
Nothin' ever seems to turn out
right I don't wanna grow up
Those words were originally
penned and recorded by Mr. Tom
Waits the poet laureate of my own
personal apocalypse. More recently
they were recorded by the
Ramones, the court jesters of my
apocalypse. But that's not what I
want to talk about at all.
What I want to talk about is
the way those words crystallize a
lot of my thoughts on the media
bugaboo surrounding Generation
X. Now, before you groan and toss
the paper away in disgust, let me
assure you that I'm just as sick of
that slacker crap as anybody else.
But, much as we might hate it,
we're stuck with the label just like
the '60s generation got stuck with
being hippies.
I mean, for every hippie there
had to be at least 10 accountants
and probably close to 50 Marines.
But when someone mentions the
'60s, we think of tie-dyed shirts and
guys with Jesus haircuts handing
out flowers to anybody who'd take
one. And we've got more slackers
than they had hippies, so we might
as well stop whining.
What we should be doing is
trying to clarify things. If we're
going to go down in history as
slackers, I damn sure want people
to understand why. After a long pe-
riod of absorbing popular opinion,
rethinking my own Gen X theories
and living the slacker lifestyle, I
think I've figured out how we're
missing the boat here.
The single overwhelming trait
that I see among the slackers is an
utter refusal to give up childhood.
Beyond all the obvious stuff (the
cynicism, the paranoia, the general
lack of decent jobs, etc.), we're ul-
timately just trying to hold on to
our childhoods, a generation of des
perate Peter Pans.
Why else would so many
people be making such constant ref-
erences to old movies and TV
shows? Why can't we go an entire
evening without someone shouting
"I had that when we mention
some toy we played with when we
were five? Like it's surprising that
two people of the same age in the
same room from the same part of
the country could have both owned
a toy that was mass-produced by
the millions.
But the biggest example of
childhood-clutching I can think of
is the Cult of Star Wars. I'm not
sure how many of you non-slacker
folks out there are quite aware of
how much influence George Lucas'
sci-fi film trilogy has had on
America's future leaders, but let me
assure you. those flicks changed
our lives. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Mark Altman, editor of Film
Threat (the magazine of choice for
most Gen X movie buffs), has been
quoted as saying that "Star Wars
is our generation's Vietnam He
may have been joking when he said
it. but the more I think about it the
more accurate it seems.
For the Baby Boom genera-
tion, Vietnam was a demarcation
point. The horrors of war were dis-
played on television screens across
the country, and people didn't like
what they saw. America was already
in the process of losing its inno-
cence, and Vietnam only hastened
that loss along.
Fast forward to 1977. The '70s.
despite the belief of current retro
hype, was a fairly bleak period. Ev-
erybody was pretty much self-inter-
ested (it was the "Me" decade, af-
ter all), sex, drugs and disco were
the national obsessions, and the
birth control pill had made children
kind of quaint and obsolete. All our
heroes were anti-heroes, with Clint
Eastwood leading the pack. The
60s had taken their toll, and
whether we knew it or not, it w�s a
pretty crappy time to be a kid.

Then along came Star Wars. Sud-
denly, we had exciting space battles,
a classic good vs. evil struggle and
heroes who were really heroic. It was
like somebody had set off a bomb in
our heads. In a bland, boring and
tacky adult decade, we finally had
something we could call our own.
Star Wars was based in mythic
structures, the kind of classic tales
humanity has told for centuries. Our
fantasy-starved brains ate it up like
ice cream. We embraced the open
(some would say naive) idealism with
all our hearts, and it shaped the way
we looked at the universe. In the
secular world of the 70s, Star Wars
was the closest thing many of us had
to a genuine religious experience.
Scary thought, isn't it? An en-
tire generation of idealists who fol-
low the teachings of Yoda. But here
we are. Show me a slacker and I'll
show you a junior Jedi Knight. We
can't escape Star Wars. It scarred us
for life.
And that's why I count Mr. Waits
among the icons of my personal
apocalypse. In another section of "1
Don't Wanna Grow Up he sings
"Seems like folks turn into things
that they'd never want That one
really strikes home.
All of us Star Wars babies have
become horrible cynics, and I'm not
sure I like us anymore. Faced with
that reality, I really don't wanna grow
up. May the Force be with me.
Neither does an explanation get
proffered for where in America the friends
finally end up. A sheriff at one point tells
them that they are "a long way from West
The sheriff (Chris Penn) actually has
the funniest role in the film. His name,
Dollard, is misspelled on his badge so
that he is addressed as Sheriff Dullard.
Dollard stops the drag queens' car be
cause of a broken taillight and then
makes a pass at Vida. Interestingly.
Dollard is not only intolerant of trans-
vestites but also of minorities and he
makes disparaging remarks about
Noxema and Chi Chi before coming on
to Vida. When Dollard finds out that Vida
has male sexual organs, he goes on a
vendetta to find the girls. They escape
after Vida knocks Dollard unconscious
(although the girls mistake him for be-
ing dead.)
The funniest bit in Wong Foo has
Dollard searching for the transvestites
from a list entitled "Places to Look for
Homos" that includes beauty salons and
ballet classes.
The bulk of Wong Foo takes place
in the town of Snydersville, where the girls
have to spend a weekend when their car
breaks down. The drag queens then pro-
ceed to win over the hearts of the town
with one uninspired act after another.
Noxema helps a woman who re-
fuses to talk come out of her shell; Chi
Chi falls in love with a boy but then
decides to fix him up with the young
lady who also loves him; Vida, in the
most painful part of the story, helps
an abused wife (Stockard Channing)
to stand up for herself.
One of the many problems with
Wong Foo. is how simply Noxema. Chi
Chi and Vida deal with other people's
problems when they have plenty of
their own - poverty and loneliness to
name two - that go unanswered.
And what of the title? Vida steals
a picture of Julie Newmar (who played
Catwoman on Batman) from a restau-
rant which has the inscription of the
title. Vida uses it as a good luck charm
and finally Julie Newmar appears at the
end of the film. The inclusion of the
picture in this film seemed designed
only to give the film an original title.
Wong Foo is an innocuous but
sophomoric comedy. Seeing Swayze.
Snipes and Leguizamo in dresses and
make-up was a novel idea, but one idea
cannot carry a two-hour film.
On a scale of one to 10, To Wong
Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie
Newmar rates a five.

October designated as Awareness month
Heather Zophy
Student Health
October not only frightens individu-
als toward the end of the month at Hal-
loween, but also "scares" health profes-
sionals because of all the awareness ac-
tivities that go on throughout the month.
Nationwide, October is known as
AIDS Awareness Month and as National
Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There
are Jso weekly awareness events in Oc-
tober such as Cultural Awareness Week,
observed the first week of October, and
Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, ob-
served the third week of the month.
There are a number of campus-wide ac-
tivities that are going on in honor and
support of these awareness events.
For the entire month of October in
honor of AIDS Awareness, the Student
Health Service and the Office of Health
Promotion and Weil-Being are
sponsoring the Red Ribbon �
Project Red ribbons will be �
made available for anyone v
who wishes to show their �
support and compassion for
those living with HIVAIDS, as
well as to create an awareness for
this illness that has spread worldwide.
Also, a canned food drive will go on
throughout the month to create an
awareness for AIDS, with all proceeds
going to the Pitt County AIDS Service
Organization (PICASO). There will be
boxes set up in different locations on
campus (Residence Halls, Student Health
Center, Mendenhall, different classroom
buildings, etc.) so that ECU can make
their contribution to the commu-
M nity. Other seminars, plays, ses-
sions, etc. will be going on
throughout the month in sup-
� port of AIDS Awareness.
For National Breast Can-
V cer Awareness Month, pink rib-
" bons will be made available at the
Student Health Center for those individu-
als who wish to demonstrate an aware-
ness for Breast Cancer. Information about
breast cancer and pink ribbons can be
picked up in the front lobby 01 uie health
center (located between Joyner Library
and Flannagan).
The Cultural Awareness Committee
has many events planned for the first
week in October. One health-related event
will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 3. "A Day
With Your Heart is sponsored by the
H.E.A.R.T. Committee. The American
Heart Association will have booths on
heart healthy behaviors, including
healthy taste-testing. Drop by the Multi-
purpose Room in Mendenhall between
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for some great infor-
mation on cardiovascular health.
As far as Alcohol Awareness is con-
cerned, a number of activities are in the
makings for the third week in October.
A kick-off that correlates with this event
is the Adventure Weekend, sponsored
by Orientation and the First Year Expe-
rience. This weekend is for freshmen and
transfer students and is planned for a

in Ely's music that is hard to find

No matter what the month or
event remember engaging in healthy
lifestyle behaviors helps to ensure hv
ing a longer, more productive life. So
play healthy!
authenticity is something I have
wondered about, but at any rate Ely
gives a satisfying performance.
All of the songs on Letter are
worth listening to. While I miss the
danceability of the music on former
Ely recordings, the quieter disposi-
tion of this one communicates a bit-
tersweet simplicity that will probably
mean a wider appeal for Ely in the
country music audience. For a taste

from her knee caused by a biking ac-

13th place went to Dava Rhodes

troubles which had plagued her over
the past couple weeks, Karen

Saturday's game between ECU
and West Virginia had all the ele-
ments of a good movie. There was
drama, suspense and of course a
happy ending.
The first quarter for the Pirates
was picture perfect On their very
first possession, quarterback
Marcus Crandell connected with
split end Larry Shannon for a 67-
yard, touchdown pass.With the play-
ers pumped up and the fans going
crazy, the Pirates continued to
dazzle and amaze a West Virginia
team that looked sloppy in the first
Going into the game, the WVU
defense, led by J.T. Thomas, was
ranked ninth nationally and their
offense was ranked 25th nationally.
The Mountaineers just didn't have
it all together in the first half. They
were outscored and outplayed.West
Virginia only put nine points on the
board during the first half, while
ECU had 20 points, which came
from three touchdowns and two of
three good extra point attempts by
Chad Holcomb.
With such a good first half, it
looked as though ECU might make
this a high scoring game in their
favor. However, the Mountaineers
came out in the third quarter a
whole new team. It looked like the
fierce team the players and fans had
heard about all week.
This time it was WVU's turn
to prove why their defense was
ranked so high in the country, and
they did just that. Incomplete
passes haunted Crandell in the sec-
ond half. With four incomplete
passes and an interception in the
third quarter, it looked like a differ-
ent Pirate team. Dropped passes
and sloppy plays, made it appear as
though the Pirates might not hang
onto the lead for very long.
The Pirates began to get out
of their slump in the fourth quar-
ter. They gave up a field goal early
on, but with about two minutes left,
Holcomb nailed a 27-yard, field goal
to put the Pirates up by three. The
Mountaineers produced no points
on their next possession. Tb the
fans and players it looked as though
the game was complete. But then a
controversial fumble gave WVU the
ball back. Coach Logan said he saw
the noseguard for WVU swipe the
ball away before the snap. It would
have been an off-sides call, but none
of the officials saw it Fortunately,
West Virginia did not gain any
points, and the fairy tale en
came true for the Pirates.
After eight previous meeting
all resulting in losses, ECU came
away with a 23-20 victory. It might
not have been the prettiest game,
but the Pirates went in Dowdy-
Ficklen and came away with what
they wanted, a history making win.
ECU played hard and it paid off for
them If they play with as much
heart intensity and enthusiasm as
they did Saturday, the rest of the
season should be a breeze for them.

"We have a good shot at wining
it" Justice said. "Since I have been
with the cross country team, we've
never been in a position to win in the
conference, and now we are.
Reinhard is optimistic about a
conference title.
"If we keep improving at the
steady rate we are, then we definitely
have an extremely good chance to take
the conference title she said.

The men's soccer team lost 6-3
in overtime late Saturday night in
CAA men's soccer action at Univer-
sity of Richmond (UR).
ECU fell behind 2-0 early in the
game, but later came back and
scored three unanswered goals to
take the lead 3-2. With 20 minutes
left in the game a UR player scored
to send the match into overtime. The
UR Spiders scored three in overtime
to win.
The Spiders took advantage of
two penalty kicks early in the game
scoring on both. But ECU's senior
Marc Mullin found sophomore John
Swagart near the goalpost, and
Swagart drove it in for the first of
his two goals in the game.
The Pirates' next goal came
when junior Derrick Faulcon as-
sisted senior Dusty Belk with a 22-
yard shot into the
Richmond goal.

to Williamsburg, Va. to take on Will-

famous for them.
With 36 hours to go before the
$1 million pay-per-view event,
Olajuwon backed out, complaining
of a sprain in his lower back.
The Houston Rockets center,
who appeared healthy and men-
tioned no injury at a news confer-
ence in New York on Thursday,
pulled out Friday because of a
back injury sustained last week
while lifting weights, promoters
His condition was improving
and he'd hoped to play Thursday.
But the pain limited his lateral
movements during a workout later
in the day, said promoter Leonard
Armato, who also is Olajuwon's and
O'Neal's agent. The official an-
nouncement was made Friday after
a medical evaluation.
"The injury is a bilateral sprain
in the lower back said a statement
by Dr. Francis Pflum Jr an ortho-
pedic specialist who examined
Olajuwon here Friday.
Pflum, contracted as physician
for the event, was not-at the news
conference. Neither were Olajuwon
and O'Neal.
Pflum, later contacted by The
Associated Press, said the Rockets'
team doctor advised Olajuwon
against competing, but that the
player went to Atlantic City.
"He's obviously in a lot of
pain Pflum said. "I just didn't
think it was in the best interest of
the NBA, him or the fans to go out
and play Shaquille O'Neal
Olajuwon was disappointed.
"1 have been looking forward
to this one-on-one challenge against
Shaq, because it gave us a chance
to show the fans our individual
skills, in a way they haven't seen
before Olajuwon said in a state-
ment released by the promoters.
O'Neal, who boarded Donald J.
Trump's personal 737 jet late Fri-
day, bound for Orlando, Fla said
he was disappointed. Asked if
Olajuwon's injury was legitimate,
he said, "I don't know
Trump had an opinion, though.
"There's a rumor out there
that the NBA had something to do
with it. But it's just a rumor he
NBA spokesman Brian
Mclntyre called the suggestion ri-
diculous. He said the NBA, which
was in the midst of a labor dispute
with players when the one-on-one
deal was announced, had nothing
to do with the cancellation.
It was to have been the first
on-court meeting between the two
centers since Olajuwon and the
Rockets swept O'Neal and the Or-
lando Magic in the NBA Finals last
The pay-per-view telecast, avail-
able through local cable operators,
was $19.95. It was offered by
Showtime Event Television, the
same company that teievised the
controversial Aug. 19 boxing match
between Mike Tyson and Peter
McNeeley, which lasted only 89 sec-
The "War on the Floor spon-
sored by Taco Bell and with $1 mil-
lion in prize money at stake, was
promoted heavily and was to have
included two other matchups: Lak-
ers guard Nick Van Exel vs. Nets
guard Kenny Anderson, and rookie
Kevin Garnett, the fifth selection
in last June's NBA draft right out
of high school, against No. 1 pick
Joe Smith of Maryland.
No figures were available Fri-
day on pay-per-view sales, said
McAdory Lipscomb Jr general
manager of Showtime.
Those who bought the pay-per-
view telecast aren't guaranteed re-
funds. It is up to their retailer
whether they get their money back,
Lipscomb said.
But he said 95 percent of the
viewers would not have signed up
until Saturday.
"There's probably not going to
be a large number of refunds
needed Lipscomb said.
In Atlantic City, all but 200
tickets in the 4,000-seat arena were
sold prior to the cancellation. The
tickets were $50 to $400.
David Robinson, Patrick Ewing
and Alonzo Mourning were consid-
ered as substitutes, but Armato said
Olajuwon's marquee value made
him irreplaceable.
"I'd rather absorb a loss than
give the fans less than they expect
and deserve he said.
It wasn't clear whether an-
nouncers Chick Hearn. Billy Packer
and Bill Walton would be paid any-
way. Armato wasn't sure.
Frank Vuono, Olajuwon's mar-
keting representative, said the in-
jury would not th.eaten Olajuwon's
career or season.
"The injury to him is serious,
but with rest and proper treatment,
he will be able to return to the
court soon Vuono said.

Baseball still in slump
CHICAGO (AP) - Except for one
game Monday, baseball's regular sea-
son is over. The aggravation is not.
The end to that is nowhere in sight.
In a poll released Sunday by The
Associated Press, six of 10 people said
they are less interested in baseball
now than in August 1994, when the
final third of the season and the
World Series were canceled so Don
Fehr and Bud Selig could launch com-
peting bids for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The same poll found that while
36 percent of the people surveyed in
March said they were fans of the
game, only 28 percent did so in Sep-
tember. No surprise there, either. And
none of these people has yet had to
deal with a postseason TV schedule
that might have been made up by
Beavis and Butt-head.
"Polls don't mean anything
White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf
said, and from where he sat Sunday,
in a private box in the middle of a 4-
year-old stadium built for his team by

the taxpayers of Illinois, the numbers
were indeed easy to dismiss.
It was a dazzling late au-
tumn afternoon. Frank Thomas had
just homered in the bottom of the
ninth to tie the score. There were only
20,457 people rattling around the
cavernous park, but another 24,000
had paid for tickets. Across town,
where the Cubs were wrapping up
their season inside Wrigley Field, the
crowd was 24,340. Of course, the sold
seats (38,765) also outnumbered the
filled ones.
The polls didn't tell
Reinsdorf anything he didn't already
know. "They're nothing more he
said, "than a snapshot of how people
feel at a certain moment"

one of the two teams.
This is a very physical sport.
Tackling is the accepted rule as
long as it is done in the correct
manner. A player can not clip a
person in the head, but when a
person is tackled, that person
knows it. When there is a fumble,
both teams make a mad dash and
usually pile up to try and get

"I've always been interested in
contact sports he said.
Senior Jerry Winegar played
football for the Marine Corp before
coming to ECU.
"I realized I wasn't big enough
for football Winegar said. "If you
play a contact sport all your life, it
is hard to get it out of your system.
So, I went out for rugby.

Winegar said it is a thinking

bunch of retards killing them-
The way the ball goes down the
field requires coordinated timing.
After the ball is put into play, a lat-
eral line of players toss the ball to
one another in an attempt to avoid
being tackled by the other team.
The ball can be kicked, tossed and
carried as long as the motion is lat-
eral. This requires a great deal of
teamwork which is brought out
when the ball is placed in either a
ruck or mall situation. Part of the
team will mesh up and, like two
Sumo wrestlers, will try to push
each other The first team to have
the bali behind them gets posses-
sion. During this strenous action,
several key players try to maneu-
ver the ball backwards.
Babbit described the sport as
a "gentleman's game The B team,
which is composed of rookies and
people who are no longer eligible
for collegiate play, was beaten by
NCSU (29-12). If there aren't
enough people to field a team, then
the match is cancelled. Due to in-
juries, NCSU did not have enough
people for the B team match. ECU
sent in four players to help NCSU
out so the match could be played.
Those four players scored four
times to help NCSU win.
Babbit is no stranger to rugby.
He started playing in England 30
years ago and even coached NCSU
from '73-76. Babbit has been head
rugby coach since 1992. Unlike
many coaches, he is still active in
his sport and played in the B game
last weekend.
"I enjoy playing the game for
two reasons Babbit said. "One, it
is a challenge and I love the sport.
Two, I've still got my wheels
The match determined who
would be the Eastern finalist of
North Carolina. Whoever won would
play the western finalist to become
state champion. The winner of this
game would go on the national level.
In the last five years, the rugby team
has consistently been in the 30
teams nationwide. This year's A
team is 3-2 and the B team is 4-1.
Rugby is a club sport which is
supported by dues from the players
and the university. Practice is ev-
ery Tuesdays, Wednesdays and
Thursdays between 4-6 p.m. behind
the Allied Health Building. The team
plays Maryland on Oct. 7.

away from the Pirate end zone.
West Virginia crossed the goal
