Tuition to be used
for faculty salary
Marguerite Benjamin
Senior Writer
Despite the efforts of student
organizations and some concerned
university business officials, at least
two schools in the UNC system are
expecting a $400 tuition increase.
Various groups at North Caro-
lina State University (NCSU) and
the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill (UNC) have been try-
ing for months to dissuade their
schools' board of trustees from ap-
proving the hike in tuition that will
mainly be use d to increase faculty
This summer, the RC. General
Assembly passed a law that would
allow the board of trustees oi the
two campuses to decide indepen-
dently whether or not the increase
was necessary.
If the plan to increase tuition
is to be enacted, the General Assem-
bly decreed, "at least 35 percent of
the funds collected from the in-
crease would go into financial aid.
The rest of the money would be used
for meritbased faculty salary in-
creases, library funding or both
The president of the University
of North Carolina System, CD.
Spangier, has received criticism
since the beginning of the negotia-
tions because he voiced opposition
to the increase.
"I cannot discern the ecoi imic
justice of taxing students to raise
faculty salaries Spanglev said. -In-
evitably this will build up animos-
Spangier said the tuition in-
crease would be unfair to students
from lower income families, and that
the act would create a situation in
which wealthy students would pay
tuition while poor students would
be on a type of "educational wel-
Spangier said he could not see
the logic in taxing students whose
average family income is in the
$40,000 range to increase the in-
come of faculty members who "in
some cases earn twice as much
Spangier faced the N.C. State
Board of Trustees with several sug-
gestions and alternatives to the tu-
ition increase.
He suggested petitioning the
General Assembly to provide fund-
ing for the increases in faculty sala-
ries which already stand at $70,000
for full professors at NCSU and at
$74,700 for UNC professors.
Other suggestions Spangier
made to the board included: ex-
empting students already on finan-
cial aid from the tuition increase,
not allowing the increase (if
passed) to be used to pay profes-

This was the second year that it has taken place dur-

in a more structured manner.
"The turnout was pretty good. It was had timing
this year, considering that everyone was burnt out al-

The festivities began on Monday with Pi Kappa

The East Carolinian
On the fall agenda
"We're in preparation now for an upcoming board meeting which will
be on the 20th of October. The trustees will meet on that day. We have been
busy trying to complete the (Shared Visions) campaign Shared Visions
has now received $60 million so that's obviously going well and that's an
effort a number of people at the university will be working on as we now
aim for the conclusion of Shared Vision at the closing of this calender year.
We have a number of projects underway at the campus and even as we
conclude those we're beginning now to plan for future project needs
On Pirate football
"I have been attending all the games so far. both home and away, and
have been very impressed indeed by the efforts of our team. They clearly
have a great deal of courage and never say quit, and those are obviously-
commendable qualities. They have done very well against very stiff compe-
tition and I'm hoping they will continue to show East Carolina's colors well
as we proceed
On the tuition increases at N.C. State and Chapel Hill
"1 was asked what my thoughts were about these increases tat the
Faculty Senate meeting) and I said then that I think the idea of tying
increases in student tuition to faculty salary increases is simply bad public
policy. I find that to be not a good idea in both the short and long run. In
the short run, 1 think it clearly, in this case, benefits two universities to the
exclusion of 14 others. The other 14 universities have faculty who have
salary needs and we have faculty who are leaving us because they can find
better opportunities elsewhere. I find it difficult to distinguish the faculty
salary needs at two universities from the other 14. In the long ran. I think
it sets a dangerous precedent in a state in which the public's responsibility
has been long understood in terms of funding higher education. Higher
education is stated in our constitution as being a very important thing that
should be provided at the least practical cost. This legislation is a falling
away from the state's responsibility to provide higher education at the least
practical cost"
On the state-wide budget cuts
"At one point in the budget process, it appeared there would be major
cuts in not only East Carolina's budget but in the entire 16 campus system.
During the course of the process, from my vantage point, cooler heads
prevailed and we did not receive clearly what we had hoped for and asked
for, but our cuts were minor in many areas and in some areas indeed we
even had a recognition of inflationary and other cost increases. We were
able to weather that storm at this university and across the system in a way
that will not cause us to have to reduce our commitment to students and
their education
On the opening of the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center
"I'm personally quite excited about the opening of that center. It seems
to me we have been able to give that center a home that it deserves on the
campus I always personally viewed the previous site as being a very tem-
porary arrangement that didn't seem to be reflective of the efforts we are
making in terms of cultural diversity and in terms of trying to expand the
cultural horizons of all of our students

these changes include Pell Grants.
Perkins loans. State Student Incentive
Grants (SSIG), Stafford loans, small
federal scholarships, fe! .vships and
the Federal Direct Stud Loan Pro-
gram. Approximately six million stu-
dents benefited from these programs
in the 1993-94 year, according to a
report prepared by the American
Council on Education in August of
1995. The impact of the fiscal year
1996 Budget Resolution will therefore
be of immense importance to students
and educational institutions.
Those who will be hurt most by
these proposed measures include the
thousands of students who major in
fields such as nursing, teaching and
social work, which require higher edu-
cation but are not highly paid profes-
sions, the Alliance report stated.
The Alliance is an organization
dedicated to making students aware
of unfolding government events that
will affect their ability to receive an
education. In addition, they want to
mobilize students and educational in-
The Alliance to Save Student Aid
conducted a public opinion survey
in January of 1995 in which 89 per-
cent of Americans voted that help-
ing students financially is second
only to social security in importance.
These voters voiced the opinion that
decreasing student aid is an undesir-
able way to reduce the budget defi-
cit. Ninety-two percent voted that fi-
nancial aid for students is an impor-
tant investment in America's future.
Over two-thirds think that if some-
thing has to be cut in order to bal-
ance the budget deficit, the defense
program should be re-evaluated be-
fore taking a bite out of federal stu-
dent financial aid.
Direct Federal student loan pro-
grams are also under fire by con-
gress. ECU does not participate in

"If we lose the direct student loan
program than the incentives for banks

Many believe that the strategies
of congress in their efforts to balance
the budget deficit are misguided. Af-
ter all. it has long been said in America
that education is the key to the fu-
ture. Proposed student aid cuts, if
carried out, would mean that less stu�
dents will be able to receive a college
'These cuts will have a serious
long term impact on educational op-
portunities Stelma said.
Cutting student financial aid is a
short sighted measure when it is taken
into consideration that financial aid
more than pays for itself in the long
run by producing productive people
who increase the tax base and enable
America to be competitive on a glo-
bal scale, the Alliance report stated.

with is happening at universities
all over the state. He said that if

The East Carolinian
Our View
Just when
tuition is being
raised at NC
schools, the
government is
continuing to
push their
financial aid
cuts. If aid is
cut, many
students are
going to have
no option but
to quit school.
Is this what our
government is
aiming for?

Once again we are going to bitch about financial aid, only
this time we won't be pointing fingers at the unorganized op-
eration on our campus. Instead, we aim to find out why the
American government feels it is necessary to cut our financial
aid by $10.4 billion.
We may all be feasting on Macaroni and Cheese and Oodles
of Noodles by the time Congress is finished with us. If their
proposed plan goes through each of us will be forced to rely on
jobs and our parents to support us while we get an education.
With one half of all students in public schools needing fed-
eral support and ECU processing an average of $25 million in
loans each year, too many are going to suffer while in the pro-
cess of only bettering ourselves.
With cuts like these occurring in our government, is it any
wonder that high school graduates are opting to skip out on
college and go straight into the work force? Ever heard the
expression that you get more from doing less. Heck, we could
probably make out better drawing unemployment from the gov-
ernment and leaving the college education to those whose par-
ents can afford tuition (which by the way will probably be raised
before we know it).
By attempting to cut our financial aid, it seems as though
Congress isn't listening to the American people who expressed
that cutting aid is not the ideal way to reduce the budget defi-
If our opinions don't matter, why do we even bother to vote?
In a study conducted in January, 89 percent of Americans said
next to social security, financial aid is the one area the govern-
ment shouldn't touch. But, it looks as though Congress couldn't
care less what we think. We're only the ones who put them in
office. Our concerns are no longer important.
It seems as though the government is kicking itself in the
butt. Everyone claims that America is losing its priorities and
that we are taking our focus off the children who are our future
leaders. So what is our government saying about the value of an
education when they propose to end the six month grace pe-
riod (after graduation) and raise interest rates on all loans.
Several weeks ago, TEC received a press release straight
from the Oval House written by President Clinton claiming to
explain the need to cut financial aid. Is he concerned about us
or is he simply setting up his platform for '96? Our voices and
opinions need to be heard to stop Congress (those who already
have their degrees) from hindering our educations. One day
we'll be in their positions. Let's only hope we have more com-
passion for college students than today's government does.
Take action and call 1-800-574-4AID. It's free and let your
congressperson know what you think about these proposed cuts. If you 've
got an email address, get technical and write them at (student-
aid@nchemail. nche. edu).

Driving yourself to the grave
I am not here to preach. I am here
to remind everybody about how pre-
cious life is. I know this sounds like
the typical cliche you might find in a
typical article. However, it is not. I
want to remind everybody about the
idea of a designated driver, you know,
that person who gets to hang around
their drunk friends and almost babysit
them. It may seem like the worst job
in the world, but just think of the al-
If you are not there to drive your
friends home, you might not still have
those friend the next day. I am not say-
ing that all accidents are caused by
drunk drivers, what I am saying is that
the majority of them are.
A friend of mine was driving home
from a concert sober as could be. She
and her friends had the perfect
evening. She had just become a sister
in the sorority she had worked so hard
to join. Everything seemed perfect
After the concert she and her friends
were on the highway driving back to
her school when she got hit I do not
mean sideswiped or rear ended, I mean
a head on collision. The driver of the
other vehicle had apparently had way
too much to drink, and having climbed
into the cab of a jacked-up truck, com-
menced to navigate his way down the
wrong side of the highway.
She did not have any time to re-
act She turned the wheel of her little
Honda, but it was too late. The truck
plowed right into her, killing one of

It is not too
much to ask
for one person
to remain
sober for one
her friends immediately. My friend was
lucky enough to live until she arrived
at the hospital.
My friend would still be here with
me if that drivers' friends, who were
sober had taken his keys or had called
a cab for their friend. There were two
sober men in the cab of that truck
watching their drunk buddy at the
wheel. I was not the only person to
lose in this situation. My friend's par-
ents will never be able to see their
daughter again. Her friends will never
he able to hear her laugh or see her
wonderful smile again.
It is because of this guy and his
buddies that she is no longer with us.
This is why it is so important for people
have a designated driver. It is not too
much to ask for one person to remain
sober for one evening, ensuring the
safety of their friends.
The designated driver program is
perhaps one of the best ideas that I
have seen come around in a long time.
My fraternity has a program like this.
Every weekend night two people sit
at home and wait for a call from a
brother or a friend who needs a ride.
This goes on all semester long.
However you set up your program,
it is important that you know who is
the designated driver for that evening.
This simple little step could possibly
save you from having to face the real-
ization that you may never see your
friends again.
I do not recommend having to go
visit your friends in a hospital or even
worse, as I had to do, at the cemetery.
The hard truth is that when someone
who has been drinking gets behind the
wheel of a vehicle, they are selfishly
taking not only their life into their
hands, but anyone else who happens
to be on the road that night
Please, for your safety and that of
your friends, be responsible enough to
have a designated driver available ev-
ery time you are drinking. It can really
make a difference, and I don't want to
have to read about some poor indi-
vidual who could have been saved from
disaster by making one phone call to a
friend or for a cab.
It is now up to you. If you decide
to go out and drink, then you have to
call someone. Do not get behind that
wheel and take others lives in your
What happened to our role models?
Who controls the giving tree?
Many, many moons ago when I
was a small innocent and unblem-
ished child, my parents read me a
story. The story was of a tree that
gave a man all that it had and was
the solution to all his problems. Shell
Silverstien's book The Giving Tree
had me convinced that I was left out
in the cold, because the trees didn't
talk to me.
Well, many moons later I've
made it through my feelings of loss
and done so without becoming a se-
rial killer and blaming it on a lack of
attention from trees. And just when
I thought my problems were over 1
find that the giving tree is not just a
childhood short story. It exists in the
country of India.
No, this tree doesn't talk to any-
one (unless they are on some sort of
hallucinogen, in which case the sky
is the limit). But it does have the cure
to an awful lot of man's evils.
The tree in question is India's
Neem Tree. Its leaves and branches
are used to treat leprosy, diabetes,
ulcers, skin disorders and constipa-
tion. The seeds are used to form an
extract that has served as a natural
insecticide for centuries. It controls
lice, flies, beetles and mites. The
seeds can be used to kill small ro-
dents as well.
As with almost all problems, the
root of trouble is in control. The is-
sue is whether or not anyone has the
right to control ancient biological se-
Well, as of now, someone does;
W.R. Grace and Company. You see,
the company patented the Neem
seeds in America and is currently
doing quite well off them. They've
taken the original pesticide formula
and made it better then marketed it.
The conflict is being instigated
Chris Arline
Opinion Columnist
As with almo
all problems,
the root of
trouble is in
by the Foundation on Economic
Trends' president Jeremy Rifkin. A
self-proclaimed environmental watch-
dog, Rifkin leads a mass of about 200
scientists from 37 different countries.
Their claim is that it is unethical to
take a country's indigenous natural
resources and make a profit from
They claim that the new flux in
demand will make it too expensive
for the native farmers, who have used
the tree and its seeds for generations
at virtually no cost to afford them.
The one thing they are overlooking
is that this patent is applied only to
the United States, not India, which
itself banned the patenting of agri-
cultural technology years ago.
Come on, you tree-huggin-cause-
hunting-little-crybabies. You are the
very little bunch that gives the envi-
ronmental watchdogs a bad name.
Let's face it, we are not dealing a
bunch of thugs cutting down people's
trees and not letting them use the
seeds. We are using the technology
they discovered to make the world a
better place.
But how do they stand to gain
from this change? They benefit the
same way the Chinese did when
Lipton started to export tea. The
same way the Hawaiians did when
Dole got into the pineapple business
(the single largest industry in the
rainbow state).
It's simple, by increasing the de-
mand for one of its biological re-
sources, another industry will be
sprouted in an underdeveloped na-
tion that desperately needs the in-
vestment and tax revenue.
We can also look at the future
opportunity this offers. With good
news like this coming from Asia,
think of the research that this stands
to spark in the region. When yields
of similar research operations in
South America have been minimal in
recent years, insiders may be look-
ing for new markets.
As far as ethics go, who's to say?
There is no such international ethics
board available to step in and call the
game. The petition filed by Rifkin and
his crew will fail because of the void
mentioned above. At best maybe their
cause will indeed spark up interest in
starting such an organization.
In no way, shape or form is this
meant to bash environmental watch-
dogs. I recycle and "give a hoot" more
than most people I know. The prob-
lem is with the poor cause that these
individuals have chosen.
If you're worried about India get-
ting ripped off, you are wasting your
time. They don't trust America any-
way. They would be the first to kick
out foreign exploiters just as fast as
the OPEC nations did, or at the very
least force them into profit sharing

seeds to control moles, they work
You gotta love Charles Barkley.
Why? Because like his counterpart,
"Neon" Deion (I don't give a damn
about the money) Sanders.his very
presence makes the sports world a
better, more exciting place.
But what happened to our real
role models in athletics, the guys like
Dr. J, or Walter Payton? The guys
who went to the gridiron, the base-
ball diamonds or the basketball are-
nas every day and were able to look
beyond the media's ridicule of them?
Where have those guys gone? How
about the same guys that don't en-
ter the national spotlight just to
shoot their mouth off as we, the
sports enthusiast have acknowledged
and shrugged them off with "Oh,
that's just Deion
It appears that Charles Barkley,
who has not one NBA Championship
ring on his finger, better recant his
statements about role models. I have
a feeling that in the near future nei-
ther he nor the American viewing
audience will hear the "I wanna be
like Charles" song unless it is uttered
in the same sentence as "retirement"
I have a problem with today's
professional athletes, who already
think that they are above society stat-
ing that they should not be role mod-
els to anyone, not even elementary
school children.
Looking back on the past month
in collegiate athletics, it was one tu-
multuous time that should probably
have gone by much quicker - that is

What happened
to the real role
models in
athletics the
guys like Dr. J or
Walter Peyton?
if you are Lawrence Phillips, or de-
fending national championship coach
Tom Osbome (from Nebraska). After
losing his junior running back from
West Covina, Calif, because he was
accused of assaulting women, it was
rumored that Osbome may repeal his
original decision and allow Phillips
to rejoin the squad.
Now, is this logical? Who are we
dealing with here? Barry Switzer and
the Oklahoma Sooners of the mid
'80s? No, how about the Southeast-
ern Conference, who deserve to be
honored with the best football play-
ers in the nation while their coaches
and staffs are the best shysters.
Whose turn is it to take the athletic
probation challenge? We have already
seen Auburn, Kentucky and Florida.
Hey, how does Alabama sound?
First off, let us first commend
the antics of our foes from Tennes-
see. Nilo Sylvan sure did a number
on us back in early September, but
on his way to the big bowl, it appears
that Sylvan ran into the law, some-
thing much bigger than the Pirates.
Accused of rape, Sylvan will not plead
his case until mid-November and by
that time, coach Phillip Fulmer will
have plenty of reasons to insist that
his star wide receiver rejoin the team.
Especially for reasons like the Citrus
Bowl or Gator Bowl.
In any respect, (if that word "re-
spect" can be supplied in reference
to the SEC or the defending national
champions), what goes through these
coaches' minds? Do they think that
they can get away with violating
NCAA sanctions on recruiting as well
as let their players use calling cards
to call 1-900 numbers (UTenn.)?
The absurdities have amassed
over the last six months, especially
for the members in the SEC. Ala-
bama, who made "Bear" Bryant spin
a few times in his grave, rolled sev-
ens as they lost at the NCAA Sanc-
tions Crap Shoot a few months ago,
when it was revealed that Antonio
Langham was almost a Christmas
package for coach Gene Stallings to
unwrap around January 1. I'm also
sure that for Christmas that year
Langham was buying some good pre-
sents for his family.
And the children of our future
do not need role models? Now there
is a flaw in our society.

All that jazz at night
Student musicians
the focus of Jazz
at Night
Brandon Waddell
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
Born out of the need to enter-
tain sailors and other seagoing trav-
elers passing through New Orleans,
jazz is the only truly American clas-
sification of music. Ocean-going mer-
chants and visitors were entertained
and amused by jazz musicians who
had to consistently change their style
to keep folks coming back to a cer-
tain club.
Of course, much has changed
since jazz's early bayou years in the
late 19th century One example of
such alterations is the instrumental
changes over the century of jazz his-
tory. But the most vital element, the
improvisational nature of the music,
is still alive and well in the hands of
the newest generation of jazz musi-
In association with the Student

mittee, ECU's Jazz Department will

because we get to see our cats and

timate setting stated Carroll
DeShiell, director of jazz studies. "We
get to see what they've learned. Then
we can work one on one to hammer

Each semester, there are a few-
major jazz recitals in Wright Audito-
rium. But a venue of Wright's size
doesn't lend itself very well to the
intimacy of the small clubs that pro-
pelled jazz into the public eye.
The structure of Wright makes
it impossible for audience members
to move about in the arena and. due
to the size of its stage. Wright intimi-
dates many musicians.
"Jazz at Night is similar to
Wright, but more like a coffeehouse

two hours in the Great Room at

wants to come out and enjoy ECU

tinctive Cajun flavor.

This is Greta!
Jay Myers
Staff Writer
Greta is a competent pop rock
band. With their initial album, Xo Bit-
ing, they gained critical acclaim but
made no impact on the buying public.
As far as that goes, Greta breaks no new
ground with their sophomore record,
rhi.s .5 Greta! Although this is a listen-
able album with good production, it
makes no movement away from formu-
laic rock structures.
On No Biting, Greta established an
aural flip-flop between hard-edged
power pop and acoustic, jangly folk-pop
that alternated from song to song. It
had bite and soul at the same time. On
This is Greta, they have relinquished
both of those extremes in favor of a
happy medium that leaves them sound-
ing slightly bland and bored. There are
a couple of things that save this record
from the trash bin, though.
First the lead singer and major
songwriter for the band, Paul Plagens,
has an excellent voice which embodies
character and inflection, things that are
missing from most singers' repertoires
today. This flexibility enables him to give
dramatic readings to songs that would
otherwise be lost in the musical dol-
drums allowing them to embody anger,
sarcasm, indifference and reluctance.
People often forget that songs are a form
of poetic expression, and if they are read
with emphasis and articulation, instead
of simple screaming, they become some-
thing different (not that screaming
doesn't have its own benefits).
Also, these guys are excellent mu-
sicians. Greta's first line-up consisted of
Plagens and bassist Josh Gordon, along
with lead guitarist Kyle Baer and drum-
mer Brad Wilk. Plagens and Gordon
have been friends since their early days
in junior high and know each other's
musical styles so well that their playing
has become an organic experience that
shows up well in their studio work.
Just prior to Greta, Baer and Wilk
had been in a band called Indian Style
lead by a pre-Pearl Jam Eddie Vedder,
so that experience should establish

Washington shines
in understated Devil
Ike Shibley
Senior Writer
Devil in a Blue Dress gives Denzel
Washington his third starring motion
picture role in four months (Crimson
Tide in May and Virtuosity in August).
The latest may well be his best
Washington seems made to play
the role of Ezekial (Easy) Rollins, a war
veteran who finds himself out of work
in 1948 and unknowingly becomes in-
volved in illegal dealings that may end
up killing him. Devil in a Blue Dress is
the first novel about Rollins by Walter
Mosley. As adapted for the screen and
directed by Carl Franklin, the story
seems perfect for Hollywood -film noir
with a black protagonist. But for a
change the filmmakers do not merely
insert a black man into a role that could
have been filled by a white one like
Humphrey Bogart
Franklin, probably thanks to
Mosley's novel, imbues Rollins and the
entire film with complex, charismatic
life. Rollins has the serious, quiet flawed
character that can involve a viewer in
that character's life. Some of the deci-
sions Rollins make are questionable, but
the audience at least understands why
he made them, even if they don't agree
with them. Rollins is not portrayed as
superhuman either. In fact the finale of
the film catches the audience off guard
because the hero does not come in to
save the day.
Washington has quietly become
one of the most reliable leading men
working in films today. He confidently
gives Rollins the toughness and warmth
necessary to make the character come
alive. In a muscle top tee-shirt and a
thin mustache, Washington looks like
he was born to play Rollins. He could
have stepped out of a 1948 film.
Franklin works hard to create the
authentic feel of Devil in a Blue Dress.
From lue establishing shot which has
a stream of cars from that era rumbling
down a main street Franklin asserts his
intention to take a realistic look at post-
war life in Los Angeles.
Franklin does more than just a
perfunctory job of establishing Rollins'
life at home. I worried that an early
scene in which Rollins plants a tree in
his backyard would be the only one I
would see of Rollins oeing a real per-
son, instead of just a hard-boiled loner
embroiled in a case.
Franklin repeatedly shows Rollins
at home; sleeping on a chair on his
porch, rweeping off his sidewalk, look-
ing at his yard. Because of the charac-
ter development Rollins emerges as a
three-dimensional figure that makes
Devil in a Blue Dress feel like more than
just a two-dimensional image projected
on a screen.
Franklin also adeptly handles the
racial tensions of the era. Rollins is re-
cruited to find a white girl because she
has a "predilection for negroes The
police go easy on Rollins when they
suspect him of killing a black voman,
but come down hard when he is then
accused of killing a white man. The
boundaries between black and white
keep appearing, as when Rollins must
be sneaked into a section of a hotel that
is whites only

From the Nobel prize winning author of One
Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of
Cholera comes a new novel. Of Love and Other De-
mons is only 147 pages long, so if you've never read
Marquez and don't have the time to get involved in a

book for you.
The story takes place in South .America during
the colonial era. At the center is a misunderstood 12-
year-old girl. Sierva Maria is the neglected child of
decadent aristocratic parents. She is raised by slaves
and completely ignored until the day she is bitten by
a rabid dog at the market in town. When this fact
comes to light her father at last decides to become
involved in her life. Unfortunately, this means disas-
ter for the girl. Months later, when she comes down
with a fever, he calls in a number of quack doctors
who do all they can to inflict as much pain and abuse
as they can onto the girl in the name of medicine.
This abusive experience results in a behavior similar
to that of rabies victims.
Sierva Maria's problems are further complicated
by the fact that she's largely ignorant of how to con-
duct herself in white culture. She speaks African lan-
guages more fluently than her own. She's never been
to church. Soon, however, she finds herself impris-
oned behind convent walls, held captive for the pur-

Scott Carneghi. All in all, the band
sounds tight and good. It's just the
material that constrains them.
The major fault of this release from
Greta is that it sounds forced. The ex-
citement found on No Biting is miss-
ing. In its place is a sense of dissatisfac-
tion and disappointment Whereas the

pose of exorcism. It is here that she
meets Father Cayetano Delaura, the
priest who has been charged with her
exorcism. Father Delaura is bright
enough to figure out that the girl is sim-
ply frightened and not possessed at all,
but he's not bright enough to devise a
way to convince everyone else. He falls
in love with Sierva Maria, and she falls
for him as well.
The shadow of the Catholic church
looms over every aspect of this story.
Delaura, being a librarian, is fascinated
with books that were deemed forbidden
by the church. At one point in the story,
he is introduced to the illegal book col-
lection of a Jew and is amazed to find a
copy of Don Quixote. We begin to real-
ize that the church serves as a shield
for the ignorant and petty characters
of the story to hide behind, and in this
way it precipitates more evil than it elimi-
The politics of the church consist
mainly of persons in power pointing fin-
gers at helpless victims, such as Sierva
Maria, and once these victims are la-
beled as "evil" there is no saving them
from the wrath of the Church. This is
something that Delaura should realize,
since he himself has read many forbid-
den texts and has had the opportunity
to see the church isn't always right This
is a fact he can't accept, however, and
because of this he can't see that coop-
eration with the church isn't going to
work in his situation. Instead of rescu-
ing Sierva Maria from the Convent he
decides to wait until the whole nasty
business works itself out and Sierva
Maria is absolved.
In the convent where she is held
prisoner, Sierva Maria iives in a cell next
to an insane nun. In the house where
she grew up, an insane asylum for
women is next door. Her father has a
lifelong romantic involvement with one
of the patients. These crazy people are
much more harmless than the Bishop
that Delaura works for and the Abbess
who is in charge of the convent wk e
Seirva Maria goes for exorcism. Social
conventions and the church serve to get
in the way of everybody's happiness in
Of Love and Other Demons.
This novel isn't one of Marquez'
best, but that's not saying it's not a thor-
oughly absorbing and satisfying read.
The story contains the same richly tex-
tured settings as his other works, and
the characters are just as fascinatingly
unusual. The book is not as deep and
intricate as One Hundred Years of Soli-
tude or Love in the Time of Cholera.

Devil in a Blue Dress lacks a
flamboyant style that may lessen its
appeal. Please believe this humble
critic that you would be doing your-
self a disservice to pass up this film
simply because it lacks glamour. The
methodical pacing and realistic atmo-
sphere allows the viewer to savor the
story and the characters. The atten-
tion to detail in the filming of Devil
in a Blue Dress may allow this to be-
come a minor classic.
Still. 1 worry about the audience
reaction. As 1 stood in line on Friday
night at The Plaza 1 listened to the
25 people ahead of me buy their tick-

Halloween, The Curse of Michael
Myers. 1 looked behind me and saw
at least 50 more people and my hopes
raised a little. But when Devil in a

than 3C people in the theater with
me. Why, I wondered, would patrons
pay $5.50 to see a derivative horror
film when they could spend the same
money and see what promised to be a
film with integrity?
Perhaps I'll never answer that
one. But 1 can answer whether Devil

answer is yes.
On a scale of one to 10, Devil in

This was followed by guest-host
Mariel Hemmingway's opening shtick.
a one-shot joke about Hemmingway's
"controversial" kissing of Rosanne

deadly sin after only ten minutes of
being on the air: the pretty funny joke
that goes on for an eon and makes
the viewer want to climb a bell tower

"A.M. Ale" was another in
"SNL's" bitingly funny commercial
parodies, showing a huge beer with
the pointed byline "Because you can't
wait "till afternoon Excellent, but
then again, these parodies have always
been good. Then another lame skit
featuring Ferrell (who is essentially
Kevin Nealon) as a shouting psycho
dad brought the show back down.
Finally, however, this new cast hit
its stride with a nasty "Nightline" skit
featuring a debate between Gen. Colin
Powell (Tim Meadows) and Sen. Bob
Dole (Norm MacDonald). MacDonald
was beautiful, barking like a mad dog
that Powell is a homosexual. When
Powell responds he is happily married.
Dole said, "Yeah, well, a lot of people

Also well done was a new skit.

who discuss the costars they've slept
with more than dancing. As these two
die-hard musical warhorses. Shannon
and Oteri perform the best female-
driven sketch comedy "SNL" has seen
since the premiere of Mike Myers'
"Coffee Talk" (oh, wait).
Following that was "Weekend

Norm MacDonald has almost hit his
stride here. Comparisons to Dennis
Miller still rage, but MacDonald is
making this bit his own with such
"news" bits as Johnnie Cochran try-
ing on the knit hat as O.J. yells out in
the courtroom "Hey, hey! Easy with
that! That's my lucky stabbing hat
The rest of the show floundered
afterwards, particularly David Spade's
new weekly bit "Spade in America"
(self-pandering and stinky). And the
attempt to bring back Mike
McKinneys bizarre Chicken Lady
character from his "Kids in the Hall"
days was horribly botched. But hey.
that middle part was excellent!
As far as standout members of
the new cast, only Oteri's Debbie
Reynolds comes to mind. The new
men are all pretty much Kevin Nealon
clones. 1 am hopeful for this new cast,
however. We often don't remember
how hit-or-miss the show was when
Ackroyd. Belushi. Chase, et. al. graced

this new cast should be happy with
the hits it had. Anyway, it's better than

ECU swim team sets records
I've got it!
Eleven new
records set at
J. Miles Layton
Sports Editor
The swim team set 11 new
pentatnalon records Wednesday in
Minges Pool. The men's team beat two
school records and the women's team
beat nine.
The team holds an annual
pentathalon before the first meet of the
seasoa Each swimmer must predict what
his or her time will be for each stroke for
points. Those closest to their assigned
times get the most points. The events
are the 200-yard individual medley which
features four 50 yard strokes of butter-
fly, front crawl, back stroke and breast
stroke. Following this, there are four sepa-
rate 100 yard strokes with a 12 minute
rest in between. The strokes are butter-
fly, breast front crawl and backstroke.
Coach Rick Kobe was very pleased
with the effort of this team before their
first meet
"We established 11 new
pentathalon records today Kobe said.
"The most we've ever set is four
The winner for the men's team was
freshmen Pablo Espada with 4500
points. Espada broke the 1978
pentathalon record for the 200-yard in-
dividual medley set by John Tudor at
1:58.64. Espada's time was 1:58 evea He
was surprised at his new record.
"I didn't think 1 was going that fast"
Espada said.
Sophomore Jim Broughal came in
second with 4080 points. Broughal won
last year with 2690 points.
Third went to junior, Chris
Bembenek who broke his own record set
in 1993 for the backstroke. His old time
in the 100-yard backstroke at 54:73 gave
way to a new 54:70.
Fourth place went to junior Brian
Wall who scored 2430 points and fifth
went to freshmen Edward Garguevic who
hau 2370 points.
The winner for the women's team
was junior Melanie Mackwoodwith 4000
points. Mackwood broke the 100-ard
butterfly record with a 1:01.48 which was
set by Melissa Phillips in 1993 at 1:01.73.
MackvoM also broke the 100 yard
front crawl record with a new time of
55:02 which had been set at 55:08 by
Hilary Stokes.
Mackwood didn't think she was
moving that fast
"I thought the race was like work
pace, hard, but not race pace Mackwood
Freshmen Lynsey Bullington tied
with sophomore Sandra Ossman for sec-
ond place with 3460 points. Ossman
broke the 200-yard individual medley
record set by Kim Field in 1994 at 2:15.03
with a new time of 2:14.45. She also
broke the 100-yard butterfly record pre-
viously set by Melissa Phillips in 1993.
Senior Jackie Schmieder came in
third with 3450 points. Fourth went to
Amanda Atkinson who scored 3440
points and fifth went to Kim Field who
scored 3410 points and broke two
records. She broke the 200 yard indi-
vidual medley record and the 100 yard
butterfly record.

ECU to battle tough CU offense
Brian Paiz
Senior Writer
When ECU travels to Cincinnati
on Saturday to face the Bearcats, they
will be facing a college football team
that is not reflective of their record
of 14. Coach Rick Minter's squad has
played tough ail season long, losing
tight decisions to Kansas, Kansas St,
Miami of Ohio and Toledo. The
Bearcats one victory was impressive,
as they went to Blacksburg, Va. and
defeated Virginia Tech 16-0 on their
home field.
ECU leads the series with Cincin-
nati, 8-1 including last season's 35-21
victory in Greenville. However the last
time ECU visited Nippert Stadium in
1993, the Bearcats sent the Pirates
home with a 34-14 loss.
Cincinnati returned 16 starters
and 37 letterwinners from last year's
2-8-1 squad, and so far this season the
star of the Bearcat team has been jun-
ior wide receiver Robert Tate. The
Harrisonburg, Pa. native had 315 all-
purpose yards against Toledo last
week, including a career high 177
yards receiving. Tate has 987 total all-
purpose yards so far in '95, and is
ranked seventh nationally.

On Tuesday night the women's
volleyball team took on Campbell
University in Williams Arena. The
match consisted of five games, with
the Lady Pirates winning three of the
five.The scores were: Came 1 ECU
15-11, Game 2 Cambell 15-8, Game
3 Campbell 15-10, Game 4 ECU 15-8
and Game 5 ECU 15-6.
The night began with ECU tak-
ing the first game 15-11. Lady Pirates
Melanie Richards and Carrie Brne led
the game with five and eight kills re-
spectively. The Lady Pirates played
the first match very well with only
six errors.
The second match was a little
disappointing with ECU only scoring
eight to lose it 8-15. Five Pirates con-
tributed to the eight points scored
by ECU. The Pirates only had six er-
rors in the second game.
The third game brought disap-
pointment to the ECU team with the
Lady Pirates losing 15-10. The team
did hold down the number of total
errors to only five this time, but the
team total of kills was only 10, each
kill accounting for one point.
But the Lady Pirates came back
in the fourth game to win big 15-8
over Cambell. The Lady Pirates held
the total errors down to four in the
fourth game, and racked up 11 more
kills to win the game and regain their
"We're glad we won, but for the
team it's not good enough and in or-
der to become better we need to fo-

freshmen Kristen Meininger.
The ECU comeback continued
into the fifth game with the Lady Pi-
rates winning again 15-6. In this fi-
nal game the Pirates recorded no
errors and five kills and once again
the majority of the kills were attrib-
uted to Richards and Bme.

Dr. Henry VanSant, associate di-
rector of the Athletics Department said
spending a quiet night away from cam-

vision I football teams.
"It is a common practice all over
the country VanSant said. "The team
wants to be together and get away from

quiet, private time
When the team gets to the hotel,
players go to meetings to discuss the
upcoming game. There are strategy
sessions held about defensive and of-
fensive game plays. VanSant said the
time away gets the players to visualize
and focus on the game.
"Focus is very
important" he said.
"We try to get them
to visualize the

them to be thinking
about what they are

years ago, before

raised prices. The
team then moved to the Holiday Inn

VanSant said the moves have been
based on price, but he hopes the team
may again move back to Greenville.
"We may move back to Greenville

McGee Moody
Amanda Ross
Staff Writer
ECU swimmer McGee Moody's
hard work and dedication have fol-
lowed him throughout his swimming
career. Since the age of four he has
been swimming in summer leagues
and since the age of ten has been
swimming all year round.
Moody, a senior from
Albertville, Ala was recruited by
three other schools. But his first
choice was ECU.
He had gotten of-
fers from Ala-
bama, Auburn,
and Ohio State,
but when he vis-
ited ECU he had
a good feeling for
the swim team.
In fact after he
visited ECU he
canceled his trip
up to Ohio and
told Ohio State
he had made his
"A lot of guys made me feel re-
ally welcome, like they really wanted
me as a part of this team Moody
said. "Now that I am here, I know
how important it is to get people
Moody feels this is going to be
a good season. A lot of new talent
and many people stepping up their
leadership skills, has helped the
team build confidence going into a
season where many of the oppo-
nents look to be tough. Some of
those challenging meets might come
from ODU, who Moody believes is
going to surprise a lot of teams or
possibly JMU who is also an oppo-
nent that has in the past had a strong
swim team. Their biggest rivalry
comes from UNC-Wilmington, always
a strong contender in the CAA.
"We could not have won a meet
all year, and they (UNC-W) could be
undefeated and it's still going to be
a close meet Moody said.
Before a meet Moody starts the
day early, getting in a morning swim
and some breakfast During the day
he tries to keep his mind off the
meet, until he arrives at the pool.
"Once we're there and warmed
up, I try to keep my mind off my race
and watch everyone else and cheer
them on he said.
When he steps up on the start-
ing block, Moody concentrates on
one thing, having a perfect race.
Before he begins, he will go over
three or four things in his head and
envision himself swimming without
"I expect nothing less than a
perfect race he said.
Moody said the swim team is like
one giant family that sticks together
and helps each other out when
things might
� look slim.
"We're al-
ways patting
each other on
the back and
picking each
other up
Moody said.
When the
going gets
tough. Moody
advises his
teammates to
keep going and
hang in there.
He constantly tries to pump his team-
mates up.
Pablo Espada, a freshmen who
broke a school record for the 200
yard individual medley this week,
said Moody is a team leader.
"He is a team leader with a high
spirit, who always keeps us going
when we're having a tough practice
said Espada.
One thing Moody is very proud
about is the fact there isn't much
"He is a team
leader with a high
spirit, who always
keeps us going
when we're having
a tough practice

negativity among the swimmers. They
all try to help one another out,
whether that be in the pool or out of
the pool.
"Everybody knows their own
job he said.
Phis dedicated swimmer gives a
lot of credit to his fellow teammates.
lie believes much of this season de-
pends on the freshmen, who he sees
as being wry fast this year. He doesn't
forget the other swimmers though.
Moody said it is a group effort that
everyone contributes toward. The fact
that many people have helped out one
another makes everything a team ef-
fort They all pull together, no matter
how tough things may get.
A typical practice the swimmers
endure is very intense. It requires the
hard work and determination of ev-
eryone. Not only do the swimmers
practice hard but so do the coaches.
"Everyone gives 110 percent in-
cluding the coaches he said.
Every team has a team motto so
it is appropriate that the swim team
have one also. Their theme has to do
with staying focused and staying on
track. Moody said the motto is about
keeping on the right track.
"You may be on the right track,
but if you're sitting still you're still
going to get run over Moody said.
He said it's a motto that applies
not only to swimming but applies to
life itself. It is something that Moody
strongly believes in and takes to
heart before every meet.
When Moody isn't in the pool
you'll find him relaxing and possibly
even watching a little football with
some of his teammates. While he is
relaxing he tries to think of swim-
ming as little as possible.
This talented swimmer would
like to put his knowledge about the
sport to good use when he graduates.
He sees himself coaching, hopefully
here at ECU. He is a double major,
majoring in business administration
and psychology, so if coaching
doesn't work out he will have a back
up plan.

In the residence hall division,
soccer guru Tony Cribble is plan-
ning on assembling several teams
to contend for a title while Ryan
Danay's Tigers surprised followers
by winning the Independent Purple
Championship after getting into

However, the competitive balance
of the entire league could be dras-
