(AP) - Police officers blocked
off streets around the Capitol in
Raleigh on Sunday afternoon in
anticipation of an influx of Ku Klux
Klan members from throughout
North Carolina and South Carolina.
Only 17 Klan members showed
up for the rally.
The marchers met at a parking
garage and chanted for white rights
as they walked to a memorial for
Confederate war dead. Some wore
traditional robes and pointed caps.
Others wore full military camou-
flage and mirrored sunglasses.
(AP) - Free prenatal care for
pregnant women and state-of-the-art
care for premature babies are hav-

women who smoke during preg-

in Forsyth County.
Forsyth County's dubious
rankings for pregnant women who
smoke and infant deaths likely are
related to the area's close ties to the
tobacco industry, according to local
health officials.

SGA legislature begins ECU inks deal
with N.C. State
First two meetings
inform members of
fall agenda
Joann Reed
Staff Writer
ECU'S Student Government As-
sociation (SGA) is "hitting the ground
running" as they attempt to tackle
their busy agenda this fall.
SGA's first meeting for the fall
semester began with all SGA members
being sworn in by SGA President Ian
Eastman last Monday. SGA members
were made aware of the technicalities
involved in student government as the
group was given a presentation on
parliamenta- v procedures by Laura
Sweet, assistant dean of students.
These procedures continued with SGA
Vice President Dale Emery briefing
class officers and other SGA members
on their duties.
"One of student government's
main functions is to deal with money
received from student fees and tuition
effectively and efficiently while still
within the guidelines of state laws
Emery said. "We're trying to take a
closer look at where money is going.
Last year, during spring break, we
went over the university's budget for
the new recreation center and found
a way to save $177,000 and cut $10
from everyone's student fees.
"If the money is needed for an
area, then we're not going to cut it.
But we're basically just trying to trim
the fat in the places our student fees
are going
With the state's proposed in-
creases in tuition already going into
effect at some North Carolina univer-
sities, N.C. State's in-state tuition went
up $400 for undergraduates and
about $1,000 for graduates, financial
reports are now being presented at
each weekly meeting so the group can
better handle student funds.
Along with its attempts to save
the student body money, SGA handles
a multitude of appropriations for stu-
dent organizations on campus.
"Any problem that comes to our
attention from the student body can

(AP)- Some scary' moments Mon-
day for East Carolina football coach
Steve Logan, Athletic Director Mike
Hamrick and three other people
aboard a small plane forced to land in
a soybean field.
The Wayne County Sheriffs De-
partment said none of the five people
aboard were injured when engine fail-
ure forced the pilot to land about 45
miles west of Greenville.
Harry Sloan, the pilot and owner
of the plane, said he radioed Seymour
Johnson Air Force Base after experi-
encing problems with the plane. Air
traffic controllers told him to try to
land at the Goldsboro-Wayne County
airport, but Sloan said the plane's
engine cut off before he could make
it to the airport.
Sloan landed the plane shortly
after one o'clock yesterday afternoon
in the soybean field.
Logan, Hamrick, Sports Informa-
tion Director Norm Reilly and Pirate
play-by-play announcer Jeff Charles
were returning to the Greenville cam-
pus from a news conference in Char-
lotte. Officials announced at the news
conference that East Carolina would
resume its football series with North
Carolina State.
It's a done deal! After months
of speculation East Carolina and
N.C. State made it official yester-
day, as they inked a four-year con-
tract to resume their football rival-

Day or night, rain or shine, this
city council hopeful has a mission.
City Council Representative
Candidate Bill Cheen is working
hard to register students to vote,
and is hoping to reach a thousand
people before the registration dead-
line this Friday.
"We're racing against the voter
registration deadline next Friday.
Oct. 13 Cheen said. "We're calling
it doomsday
Gheen said the majority of
people he has come into contact
with are choosing to register, and
most he finds, have not registered
to vote.
"People have a lot of misconcep-
tions about voter registration
people from out-of-state believe they
can't vote Gheen said.
In order to register to vote, a
person must be a U.S. citizen who
is 18 years of age, not registered in
another area and be free of any
felony charges. Gheen said that
when current registration forms are
filled out, any previous areas the
voter may have been registered in
are canceled out.
"Any time we can is how Vol-
unteer Jason Feagans plans to reg-
ister people to vote. "People have
been really responsive at the door.

overtime to reach unregistered vot-
ers and to make personal contact
about the campaign Gheen said.
He is hoping to contact every
person he has registered thus far to
inform them of his agenda, as well
as to remind them to vote on Nov. 7.
5 Criteria for
Registering to Vote
1. U.S. citizen
2.18 years old by Nov. 7
3. Not registered in any other
place (current forms cancel
prior registration)
4. Living at address 30 days
prior to election
5. No felony charges
Voters are now able to register
when renewing their driver's license.
Before the Motor Voter passage a
little more than a year ago, Gheen
said voters could only register at
their public library at the board of
elections office or by seeing a certi-
fied registrar where an oath could
be taken.
A debate, sponsored by
Greenville's League of Women Vot-
ers is scheduled for Oct. 27 and will
be televised. Gheen faces Incumbent
Inez Fridley and Matt Koerber in the
Nov. 7 election.

This fall the Society for the Advancement of Management (SAM)
is actively pursuing its goal to train ECU students to use business
management skills effectively.
Steve Childers, faculty advisor of SAM. said he believes the busi-
ness organization is a "fantastic opportunity" for anyone who is in-
The organization, which Childers said is the oldest of its kind in
the country, currently has 40 active members on campus and the
"membership is growing rapidly
Over the first couple of months of school, the organization has
sponsored a number of compain urs, fundraisers and speakers.
Most recently, members visited Diamond International that makes
tobacco products in Farmville. During last spring, members toured
Burroughs Wellcome.
Childers said the organization uses fundraisers for two reasons -
one to allow members to practice their management skills and two to
raise money for group activities.
"Last week, we had a yard sale as a fundraiser Childers said. "It
went quite well
This year a lot of the fundraising dollars will go towards paying
for as many members as possible to go the SAM National Conference
in Corpus Christi, Texas next March.
Childers said ECU's SAM members have been two time, back-to-
back winners of the case analysis competition at the national confer-
The case competition includes giving students information on an
industry or company and having them analyze data about the com-
pany. The participants ate then iudged by actual members of the par-
ticular industry or company.
SAM members seem to have done well on the national level on an
overall basis.
"Last spring, we had three seniors win national outstanding se-
nior awards Childers said. They only give 15 (awards) out to se-
niors in the whole country, and we got three

management skill information from the likes of Tom Smith, the CEO
of Food Lion and Bill Bowen. owner of Bowen Cleaner's in Greenville.
Bowen, yho is a 1970 graduate of ECU'S School of Business,
said he makes several trips a year to the campus to talk to students,
including members of SAM, about management skills.
Bowen said he is glad to come talk to students because he re-
members what he benefited from when he was in school.
"I enjoyed the classes where I actually heard a business person
speak Bowen said.
Bowen said that when he speaks to students, he hopes they see
that he puts the skills he learned in the classroom to practical use in
his business and realize they can do the same.
Bowen said he hires a number of ECU students to work for him
and gives them a lot of responsibility.

The ECU School of Art hosted a
two day Tri-State Sculpture Guild
Exhibition and Conference last week-
end. This was the second conference
to be held at ECU.
The conference involved tri-state
members from North Carolina, South
Carolina and Virginia. Participants
ranged from areas such as Buffalo
State College to UNC-Creensboro.
Activities Friday included a key-
note lecture given by Melvin Edwards,
an accomplished sculptor from
Rutgers University.
Edwards spoke on the theme
Focus On Education and � elated his
experience in teaching at Rutgers to
being a sculptor.
"1 thought it would be very ap-
propriate for him Edwards to talk
about this Focus On Education be-
cause so many student arc invoked
in the conference as well sj Tri-State
members who range from students at
other schools to pr'i( ssional artists
said Carl Billingsley, associate profes
sor of sculpting.
A featured workshop event was
an iron pour sculpture casting on Sat-
urday held behind the Jenkins Fine
Arts Building. The casting involved
the use of materials such as iron
melted down from old radiators.
Art students were one of several
groups able to participate in the iron
pour by having some of their designs
from molds cast.
"It was amazing. There was 3,000
degree molten iron. When a drop hit
the ground there were millions of
sparks everywhere said Ira V'arney,
an art education major.
The iron pour began at 4 p.m. on
Saturday and ended at 3:58 p.m. on
Sunday Billingsley said. More than
150 molds were cast with two cupo-
las of molten iron totaling a vveight of
around 6,000 pounds.
Hher workshops explored differ-
out techniques, works and new ideas
in sculpting, ceramics and several
other topics.
Concrete pads were placed
around the yard of the Jenkins Build-
ing to display sculptures. This is the
first time a permanent loundation has
been established for exhibitions.
With Chancellor Eakin's sup-
port and the support of Dean Dorsey
of the School of Art and Associate
Vice Chancellor of Business Affairs
George Harrell. we were able to set
these outdoor sculptures said
Billingsley. "This is the beginning of
the opportunity to have an ongoing
exhibition in exterior sculpture
Sculptures from professional art-
ists are displayed inside the Gray Gal-
lery, on the lawn surrounding Jenkins
Building and Mendenhall Student
Center. Student work can be viewed
inside the Burroughs Welcome Gal-
lery in the Jenkins Building, on the
patio outside of the Gray Gallery and
on the first floor of the library. The
exhibition will run for one month.
This conference was an opportu-
nity tor the School of Art to assess
where it stands in relation to art pro-
grams and evaluate different feedback.
Ann Dudley. Hanna Jubran and the
ECU Sculpting Guild contributed
greatly to the conference due to the
large amount of work required to run
the conference.

Responsible Wear is a clothing and ac-
cessory line made of 100 percent re-
cycled materials and is officially licensed
to bear the ECU logo.
Orbs is currently producing T-
shirts, sweatshirts and caps made from
plastic soda bottles and excess cotton
trimmings that would otherwise be tak-
ing up space in landfills.
Ordinary soda bottles are con-
verted into a usable material called
Ecospun by a process in which the plas-
tic is crushed into pellets that are melted
and spun into a fine fiber. Ecospun has
been around for about two to three
vears and was originally used in prod-
ucts such as upholstery and carpet said
Charles Schwartz, president of the
Sherwood Group Inc. A sweatshirt made
from Ecospun alone would make for
itchy wear so Orbs' products are com-
bined with 50 percent reclaimed cotton
trimmings to make the product wear-

billion plastic bottles are churned out

companies like the Sherwood Group, it
is feasible that recycling will be a more
pressing priority in the future from the

plastic bottles threatens to outstrip the
supply, big corporations may be forced
to actively encourage recycling efforts.

But, how long

ECU'S faculty and administration deserve a big pat on the
back for this one
Chancellor Eakin's denouncement of tuition hikes for the
purpose of raising faculty salaries at N.C State and Carolina
last week were truly words of wisdom. Tying faculty salaries
to students' tuition could lead to a day where education
wouldn't be affordable to everyone and only the rich would be
able to go to school while the truly talented minds would be
left to rot in menial and unpromising jobs.
North Carolina is the oldest state school in the country
and was built on the premise of charging from nothing to the
smallest amount of tuition possible for a college education.
Our founding legislators obviously knew the value of an af-
fordable education; it appears that value is quickly being for-
gotten in a time of increasing debt throughout the country.
North Carolina has notoriously neglected education and
we say it's time to start listening to the voices of the future.
What good will all of those highways do in 50 years? The
return on an investment in education can only help North
Carolina prosper in not only the long run, but also the short
"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 Eakin said. We agree.
Have we been fooling ourselves into believing that the
education we've received at ECU has really been "separate but
equal" compared to those at the other state universities? N.C.
State and UNC now have reason to boast they are better than
us. Their faculty are paid more and their schools seem to re-
ceive better funding across the board.
Joyner Library was threatened with massive cuts to their
journal subscriptions this year. Eakin promised to supplement
funding for those subscriptions, but what about next year?
What's he going to do, sell his house?
The state legislature ueeds to realize they're setting a bad
example across the state's 16 campus system by allowing such
increases. ECU students are lucky our administration and fac-
ulty feel the way they do, but will that cause us to suffer in the
long run if and when more state supported schools jump on
the bandwagon and step into line to ask for permission to
gouge students (who already fall into the poverty level) for
more money? It may only be a matter of time before our school
can't keep up and falls under the pressure.

Will you weep for Nicole?
� i, Pn�,r RantSpv; ArrnHir
So the trial is over and now we
can get back to normal whatever
that is. Many columnists and TV guys
are barking about how this will change
things. We are asking what it shows
us about the justice system, about race
relations, about cameras in the court
but I believe there is a deeper issue
that reveals a rtal cancer in our soci-
ety - and it is not race.
The real unnerving issue about
the trial is how easily we, as a society,
get over murder and death. We are
much more impressed with power and
prestige than we are outraged at vio-
lence and the termination of life.
Nicole and Ron are where the focus
should remain and yet OJ. and bad
cops have grabbed the spotlight.
The violence of the case does not
grip us because we are all to familiar
with violence in our society. Not from
personal experience of course, or even
real life around us, but entirely
through the glamorization of violence
on the big screen and the boob tube.
We have fashioned violence to such
an extent that real violence no longer
has any shock value. In order to cap-
ture our attention it has to be ex-
tremely hostile, overtly gross or wildly
creative, but murder, in and of itself,
has become so common place on TV
and in movies that we hardly blink an
eye when it happens in the real world.
I would be willing to bet that
most of us reading this article have

mal in almost everything we view. Just
look at the most popular pictures over
the last year. Many of them (very well
put together films) glorify gratuitous
violence. Pulp Fiction, one of the
best, is one of the worst.
And we are really fooling our-
selves if we say this has no effect on
our culture. Advertisers spend mil-
lions to get you to look at their prod-
uct for 30 seconds because they know
that it will alter your thinking and
actions toward their product If vio-
lence is depicted routinely and in a
favorable light, what is to say it will
not change our culture's attitude in
the same way. It will, it does, it already
If you do not believe me just go
down to your local elementary school
and watch the kids play. Most of the
boys (and some of the girls) will be
kicking at each other's heads while
they play Power Rangers. According
to a study published in 1987 by Teach-
ers College Press at Columbia Univer-
sity, violence aimed at children is
changing the way kids play. The study
cited 83 violent incidents per hour and
an attempted murder every 30 sec-
onds in the (then popular) children's
program "Transformers And things
have not gotten any more tame in the
last eight years.
So the story goes, two people die
and O J. gets the cover of Time. Two
people are violently murdered and the
mc iia circus pursues the white Bronco
over answers to the atrocities. Two lives
are gone forever and there is more re-
joicing that O J. got off than there is
disgust that the killer got away.
It is time we stop making light of
such violence and take to heart the
issues at hand. Next time you watch a
movie and someone gets shot stabbed
or chunked off a building, think about
' that happening in reality. I know, it is
just a movie, but it is just a movie that
affects the way we view violence in real
life. I know it affects us.
Who is talking about O J. and who
is weeping for Nicole? Wfe are a vio-
lent media driven society and I do not
desire to raise my kids in a society
where murder is as common as soap
ads and our emotions are tied to ce-
lebrities and sport heroes rather than
real life victims. Glamorizing murder,
real or fake, is glorifying violence and
death. Will you weep for Nicole? Some-
body should.
What can we celebrate today?

news too much anymore, since I'm

here and there when I'm brushing
my teeth.
Yesterday, I chanced to hear
about Queen Elizabeth's misfortune
in Scotland. She was out for a walk
on the countryside when a nearby
grouse hunter felled a big one with
his rifle. The doomed bird plummeted
from the sky, guided by the fickle fin-
ger of fate to land right on top of the
Queen of England.
She wasn't killed, or even seri-
ously hurt but the blow bowled her
right over and left her bruised and
understandably shaken. Actually, she
got off light having missed the tur-
bulent time period in history when
peasant uprisings introduced many
royal heads to the bottom of a bas-
Upon hearing of this, I imagined
the whole of England to be collec-
tively rolling around on the fog-cov-
ered ground in hysterics. After all,
didn't we do the same back when
Ford was president and he slipped
and tumbled down the stairs of Air
Force One, not once but twice, like a
punch-drunk quarterback?
Leaders seem to have a hard
time being taken seriously. I can't
think of a single historical figure,
either living or dead, who commands
nothing but unflagging respect from
the masses.
Taunting Clinton isn't even
worth it anymore. It just makes one
feel like they're torturing a sideshow
animal tethered to a post behind the
midway. Incidentally, if by some cos-
mic twist of fate Clinton retains the
presidency for another four years,

I think that history will choose
to instill in Ronald Reagan the same
sense of awe and repulsed fascina-
tion that we bestowed over 20 years
ago onto one of the biggest stains
on the integrity of our country: Ri-
chard Milhous Nixon.
Nixon was an utter weasel and
a thug who didn't have the smarts
to know that taping White House
conversations was a dumb idea to
begin with, but he was a Politician
to the bone. Any man with the suspi-

lic persona of The Man With the Un-

something, if not the presidency.
Reagan had a new twist though.

handful of actions and phrases: guns,
supposed cover-ups, shredded docu-

However, it was his belief in the Ameri-
can Way of football on the beach,

and popping jellybeans instead of

the condition he is in. His gradual

tual boob, but Reagan will be tall in
the saddle for all time.

"Destry Rides Again" is set in the
town of Bottleneck, which has been
taken over by undesirables. After the
"disappearance" of Sheriff Keogh, the
town's crooked mayor appoints local
drunk Wash Dimsdale as the new sher-
iff under the direction of Kent and
his outlaw gang. Kent seems to think
that Wash will be easily controlled,
but he has a surprise coming.
Wash hires Tom Destry, the son
of the famous lawman by the same
name, as a deputy sheriff. But when
Destry arrives, the townspeople dis-
cover to their dismay that he refuses
to carry a gun! Is Destry a coward?
Or is he perhaps braver than he lets
DJ. Maloney directed the ECU

visal production is more of a remake
than simply a revival, and is usually
only done in New York. However, the
cast and crew of the East Carolina
Playhouse prove that New York does
not have a monopoly on good theater.
Jeremy Bolich is simply outstand-
ing as the lovable Tom Destry. From
the moment he arrives in Bottleneck,
the audience can sense that there is
something special about his charac-
ter. Bolich had quite a pair of shoes
to fill, since Destry is the role that
launched Andy Griffith's career, but
not only did he live up to the high
expectations, he did so with such ease
that it is doubtful whether Griffith
himself could have done better.

Banderas sweats it out in Assassins
Ike Shibley
Senior Writer
Antonio Banderas has quickly be-
come the most overused actor in Holly-
woou. just weeks ago. Banderas shot his
way across the screen in the action pic-
ture Desperado. Now in Assassins,
Banderas gets to shoot his way across a
bloated big-budget action picture with
Sylvester Stallone.
Banderas plays Miguel Bain, a
young hot-shot hitman out to bring down
the reigning hitman in the world, Rich-
ard Rath (Sylvester Stallone). Barring
several other uninteresting subplots, the
entire film is based on just that one
premise. As in all mind-numbing Holly-
wood pictures, the outcome is predeter-
mined before the film begins.
Richard Donner directed Assassins
with all the tact and subtlety he used in
the Lethal Weapon movies. 1 once be-
lieved that Donner might have some tal-
ent and that 1 undervalued the worth of
his work, but Assassins makes me be-
lieve otherwise. Donner seems prone to
cliches. He takes an expensive star ve-
hicle like Assassins and uses retread tires
to make the vehicle run.
Donner loves to film chase scenes
and Assassins is replete with them. A
chase through a cemetery, a chase in a
taxi, a chase through a house, a chase in
a hotel, a chase through another cem-
etery and a chase through another ho-
tel (this one condemned, to add a Ver-
tigoiike touch to the ending). The chases
take up such a large portion of film time
that Donner has little time left to con-
cern himself with such mundane cin-
ematic aspects of the film like a story.
The film supposedly gets interest-
ing when Rath meets Electra (Julianne
Moore). Rath is supposed to kill Llectra
and a group of men she is supposed to
meet Bain kills the men and Rath real-
izes that something has gone wrong so
he seizes Electra and protects her.
A recurring memory of Rath's is a
hit committed 15 years ago on a friend.
It always appears in black and white as if
Donner were afraid that if he didn 't some-
how clue his audience in, they would miss
the importance of the flashback. I think
this says something about the mental age
of the target audience. The importance
of the scene becomes evident at the cli-
max of the film. But it is contrived and
useless, just a phony gimmick to make
audiences feel like they got their fair share
of action cliches.
Stallone has been stuck in mindless
action pictures for far too long. I wish he
could find a script that actually has some
integrity. Still, Stallone's stature as one
of the most popular movie stars in the
world will probably be helped by more
films like Assassins. Without Stallone
this film would have been a bomb. He
has marquee value that will pull in audi-
ences. Stallone looks sculpted here: he
wears suits and ties in most of the film
and has several scenes at a computer
where he puts on glasses. Not onty does
Stallone have brawn in this film, but he
has brains and charisma as well.
Banderas, meanwhile, is sweaty
most of the film and looks like he just
got off the set of Desperado. He wears
dirty clothing and seems dressed to ap-
peal to women who like their men with
machismo and little else. In one scene
Banderas gets to release some high-test-
osterone language while sweating pro-
fusely. The scene is ludicrous and
Banderas' overacting makes it more so.
Julianne Moore has a thankless role.
Her character is poorly written so she
has little with which to build on, except
to fondle her cat (as if caring for a pet
was a character trait). She may be an up
and coming actress, but this role was
strictly to pay the bills.
Assassins provides one more dispos-
able action film to placate the masses.
Maybe someday an uprising by the
masses will make films like this obsolete.
Sure, and world peace will arrive
by the turn of the century.
On a scale of one to 10, Assassins
rates a four.

12:45- 8p.m. The actual trip
was a spiritual joy as we witnessed
majestic mountains and paid hom-
age to Davy Crocket at his birth
spot (which now has an awesome
swimming pool and several color-
ful monkey bars for tourists).
8:30p.m. Reaching Louisville,
the first thing to pop into the
group's heads was pasta. There-
fore, we crossed over the Ohio River
into the enemy territory of
Jeffersonville, Ind. There, we flirted
with the waitress (who said if it
wasn't for her fiance' we could've
stayed with her).
10 p.m. After a nourishing
meal, we set out to find a cheap
motet. I preferred the first one we
encountered but was outvoted. I
swear I saw Dolly Parton serving
drinks at this motel. But Willie was
afraid that the Deliverance-inspired
clientele would skin us like pigs, so
we left
10:15 p.m. We chose the Con-
tinental Inn because they claimed
to offer the Playboy Channel. To our
dismay, they lied and we had to in-
stead watch something Michael J.
Fox directed. I think that this, and
not the bottle of champagne I drank,
was the reason I had a headache the
next morning.
Day Three: Farm Aid Day. 11
a.m. Forced to leave the motel, we
decided to grab a quick country
breakfast and act like tourists be-
fore discovering true Americana at
the Cardinal Stadium.
2 p.m. We parked our fine au-
tomobile at the stadium. To our left,
two living Barbie dolls spent a full
hour caking their faces with make-
up. You have to look good for that
stud John Mellencamp. To our right,
hip youngsters wearing overalls
tossed a football around. Directly
behind us, a van filled with the
next generation of the Waltons
blared Hootie and the Blowfish on
the radio. Right in front of us a
long, gray-haired man with a worn,
chiseled face sat silently with two
women with similar worn, chiseled
faces. Meanwhile, the gang and I
drank apple cider beer and listened
to Neil Young.
3:30 p.m. We bought our de-
sired Farm Aid merchandise and
entered the golden gates.
4 -11:20 p. m. The stadium had
a bar and lounge! This was Heaven.
Beer and pretzels flowed endlessly
into the crowd's stomachs. Good
ol' boys shared Jack Daniels with
us. This was America the way it
was meant to be.
The only major problem rested
in the bathrooms. Dolly reported
that in the women's restrooms, a
powdery fragrance lingered as
women politely chatted about their
children, their boyfriends and their
lives in general. However, the
men's restrooms were cluttered
with hundreds of loud, drunken
male egos. Women were walking
in the men's room and breaking
in line, making such cute com-
ments as, "Do y'all mind if 1 go
ahead of you? Thanks, darlin To

Well, David Bowie's gone and done
it again. For most of his more than 20-
year career, Bowie has emerged every
few years with a new musical style, a new
look and a new attitude. This constant
costume-changing has earned him the
distinction of being called "rock's cha-
meleon" in some circles, and of being
called "flake" in others.
Say what you will about Bowie's
changeable nature, most of his various
incarnations have at least been interest-
ing. How many of his contemporaries
who have more or less stayed the course
of their sound can you say that about7
Even in the '80s, Bowie's least-creative
period, he was saying something about
that vapid, greedy decade.
Bowie's latest rebirth shows him
embracing technology with an album
that adapts both industrial and house
music styles to the Bowie canon. Leave

Oh my God! I don't know who is
in charge at Strangelove Records, but
whoever "ame up with the brilliant
idea of releasing the soundtrack to
the film Orgy of the Dead deserves a
big raise. This film, released in 1965,
was one of the last films that the infa-
mous Ed Wood was involved with and
it bears his indelible mark. Although
he didn't direct this wonderfully hor-
rendous mess, he wrote the screen-
play adaptation from his novel of the
same name (it must have been an ex-
tremely short novel, too, because
there are only about 20 lines of dia-
logue in the entire film).
The biggest star in the film is that
wacky magician cat Criswell, a famil-
iar name'in Ed Wood's films. In Orgy
of the Dead, Criswell is the Lord of
the Dead and, along with the Prin-
cess of Darkness, he rules the Under-
world, which in this film is a cheesy

The East Carolinian
Enthusiastic crowd inflamed by Burning Spear
Brad Oldham
Senior Witter
A diverse crowd of young and old.
black and white, timeworn rastas and
college preppies gathered around the
stage of a packed Cat's Cradle Saturday
night eagerly awaiting the presence of
one Winston Rodney, a.k.a. Burning
This concert was the first of a two-
night stint in North Carolina for Burn-
ing Spear, who are currently on their
1995 50th Birthday Tour.
At 11:30, the nine-man band of
Burning Spear walked onto the stage,
followed by Rodney, who went straight
to his bongos to open the show with his
instrumental. "Peace Medley
It was obvious from the start that
this Cat's Cradle crowd wasn't here for
any social gathering purpose. The goal
of the night was clear. They were here to
see Rodney, who has taken the torch as
the forefather of reggae music in the 90s.
This was a crowd that was waiting to be
taught and Rodney was here to teach
After the KVminute instrumental on
the bongos, Rodney backed up and
picked up his microphone. He went from
the medley into his invitational reggae
jam, "Come Come
It's said that Rodney rarely digs into
his oldest material in concert unless he's
feeling one with the crowd and the venue.
Well, if you didn't know better, you would
have thought that the Cat's Cradle had
been moved from little Carrboro, N.C
to Rodney's home town of St Ann's, Ja-
maica. The concert highlighted the best
in old Burning Spear.
Rodney owned the audience from
beginning to end, reaching out to the
audience with questions such as "How
you feeling people? Talk to me people
And the people did. Rodney an-
swered back to them by rolling into his
live performance masterpieces such as
"The Sun "Loving Day "Jah Kingdom"
and "Man in the Hills - the descrip-
tion that has been ragged on Rodney for
Not only was I overwhelmed by the

it to David Bowie to put out a techno
album in the midst of a sudden resur-
gence of classic rock sounds. Titled Out-
side: The Nathan Adler Diaries. Bowie's
latest is a concept album about the art-
ritual murder of Baby Grace Blue.
I know what you're thinking. A con-
cept album? In the '90s? That's right
David Bowie has managed to go futurist
and retro at the same time.
Wait it gets better. For Outside.
Bowie has also pulled together the tal-
ents of keyboardist producer Brian Eno,
who worked with the early Bowie, and
noise guitarist Reeves Gabriels, who was
the major player in Bowie's latest incar-
nation, the neo-punk Tin Machine.
Taking the retnfuturist action even
further, Bowie has set the story of Baby
Grace in both the future (the body is
found on Dec. 31, 1999) and the past
(via flashbacks to various art atrocities
across the latter quarter of the 20th
This is only fitting for an album that
takes Bowie both forward and backward
musically. Despite the industrialhouse
styles featured in many of the songs on
Outside, this album is really a throwback
to Bowie's work of the 70s. Mostly aban-
doning the sugary pop stylings of his
"80s stuff as well as the pounding venom
of Tin Machine, Bowie settles easily back
into the Gothic standard he set so long
He just as easily settles back into
the concept album format Unlike most
of his 70s peers (Pink Floyd being the
rare exception), Bowie actually has the
brains to make a concept album work.
But Outside is even more ambitious
than that Labeled "a non-linear Gothic
Drama Hyper-Cycle this album is only
the first part of a larger story' called "The
Diary of Nathan Adler. or the Art-Ritual
Murder of Baby Crace Blue The liner
notes include a 14-page short story, il-
lustrated with computer-enhanced pho-
tos of the principal characters.
Pretentious? Of course! But not as
much as you might think.
Outside is the story of Nathan Adler
(portrayed by a sneering, scarred Bowie
in the CD jacket), a detective specializ-
ing in art-crime and the chief investiga-
tor in the murder of Baby Grace Blue.
Bowie performs an amazing balancing
act here, combining hard-boiled tough
guy attitude with rainy, depressed Gothic
murk to examine the depraved and eso-
teric world of performance art It's an
exploration of murder, art and sex, all
warped in one way or another by tech-
nology (giving the proceedings, now that
I think of it a kind of cyberpunk edge
on top of everything else).
Yes, the whole thing is fairly ridicu-
lous, but that works in Bowie's favor.
While it explores some pretty serious
territory, Outside keeps an ironic distance
from that territory. All the bizarre trap-
pings of the story being told here give
the album a much-needed sense of hu-
And, oh yeah, there's songs too.
1 won't even begin to try explaining
how each song fits into the story. I'm
not sure I've figured that out anyway.
As a whole, the songs on Outside have a
tendency to run together, becoming a
hyperactivery narcotic drone in the style
of most house music.
But there are a lot of stand-out
tracks as well. Several industrial tunes,
like "Hallo Spaceboy" and "The Heart's
Filthy Lesson give the album some
punctuation, a much-needed kick to
counteract Bowie's hypnotic vocal deliv-
Other interesting tracks include
"I'm Deranged a nice little house tune,
and the techno-tribal "We Prick You
My favorite number, sound-wise, is "I
Have Not Been to Oxford Town which
combines the robotic click of industrial
with Bowie's new wave sound of the '80s!
You gotta hear it to beiieve it folks.
Outside ends with "Strangers When
We Meet" a somber piece about human
relationships. "I'm glad we're strangers
when we meet" Bowie intones, because
if we knew all the dirty secrets about
each other from the outset we would
never get close to anyone. A sad way to
end a rather sad album.
Outside: The Nathan Adler Diaries
is some of the best work Bowie has pro-
duced in a long time. It's not up there
with Ziggy Stardust, mind you, but it's
good to see Bowie stretching his creative
muscles again. If nothing else, it makes
me curious to see where he'll go next

the crowd itself. How refreshing it was
to be in a crowd where everybody was
engrossed in the groove. No fights, no
annoying jibber-jabbing by the clueless.
Everybody, and I mean everybody, was
there to see this show.
Burning Spear, by far, is the great-
est reggae band that I have ever wit-
nessed. Rodney's voice and his captivat-
ing lyrics are as crisp and meaningful as
when he began his career way back in
1969, at the urging of fellow St Ann's
resident Bob Marley.
In a time when reggae music is be-
ing invaded by imitation drum machines
and computer-sequenced rhythms,
Rodney has picked up the pieces of
reggae and kept the fire burning to those
who laid the foundation years ago. True,
Rodney is not the very last true Rasta,
but he's certainly one of them.
The man who has earned such ac-
colades as two NAIRD Indie Awards for
the Best Reggae Album of the Year, five
Grammy nominations, the Nelson
Mandela Award for most conscious lyr-
ics and the Martin's International Reggae
Award for most educational entertainer,
can only truly appreciated when seen live.
You see the honesty and the passion of
his message in his eyes. He has become
the ambassador of his trade.
Burning Spear ended with their tri-
umphant jam. "Happy Day and looked
like they were done for the night But at
the crowd's request Rodney went into
one of the band's most well-known pieces,
"Mek We Dweet" The band encored the
show with a moving song called "Cry

sea of hands all holding up two fingers
in the symbol of peace.

this show. Not only was the music inspir-
ing and breathtaking, but the atmosphere
itself just made it that much more irie.
With Jamaican food, craft and jewelry
booths set up in the back, the entire spirit
of the show was just incredible.

cemetery set.
The plot begins with unlucky
horror writer Bob and his mainly
clueless girlfriend Shirley driving
along a mountain road to find a cem-
etery becauseseeing a cemetery on
a night like this can stir in the mind
the best ideas for a good horror story
They end up crashing the car and
awaken to find themselves in
Criswell's domain. In order to horrify
the easily intimidated couple, Criswell
promises to show them how "the
ghouls feast in all their radiance
Now all of that may seem like the
makings for a good horror flick. But
then Ed Wood gets involved and what
starts out as a schlocky B-movie be-
comes something much, much worse.
The night of horror that the Lord of
the Dead shows us is an hour and 15
minutes of strippers! That's right I
said strippers. If you want to scare the
wits out of someone, nothing does it
better than strippers.
If the film is so bad, then why
does the soundtrack deserve the high-
est grade possible, you may ask. The
soundtrack consists mostly of the
music to which the strippers do their
thing, interspersed with the dialogue
of the entire film, and these become
the focus of attention rather than the
cheesy sets and bad acting. It is the
combination of dialogue and music
that elevates this soundtrack to a
work of art
The album becomes a brilliant
piece of surrealist expression with
tracks like "A Pussycat is Bom to be
Whipped In this one. Criswell speaks
the lines, "It will please me very much
to see the slave girl with her tortures!
Torture! Torture! It pleasures me
laid over a instrumental of happy pi-
ano tinkling and intercut with whack-
ing sounds.
I doubt if the creators of this
soundtrack realized what they had
made, but they should be commended
for their work. As much as current
bands like King Missile, The Residents
and Primus and film directors such
as David Lynch and Oliver Stone think
that they are on the cutting edge of
absurdist imagination, they can't hold
a candle to what Ed Wood and his
colleagues produced 30 years ago.
This record inspires awe and is ex-
tremely funny.

asked the front desk if Neil was stay-

The audience watched him go from
the seemingly brave and totally evil
outlaw to a coward who hits his fian-
cee and sacrifices a member of his
gang to save his own skin.
The ensemble of this show was
also outstanding. The cowboys par-
ticularly impressed me with their ren-
ditions of "Every Once In A While"
and the a cappella "Not Guilty The
entire cast did a great job on "Are
You Ready. Gyp Watson a song
which seems to show how public ex-
ecutions were regarded as entertain-
ment in the Wild West.
The set for "Destry" was won-
derful. In the beginning, the audience
is treated to a sign with the
character's faces painted on itWhile
this sign was beautiful and incred-
ibly effective when it was first used,
I feel that it should have been put
away after that. Unfortunately, it
stayed behind the drop with the
desert painted on it, and could be
seen through that drop during all of
the street scenes. More often than
not, I found myself looking at it and
wondering why I could see Destry's
face in the desert. But other than
that, the set was fabulous.
The lighting for this show was
more than effective; however, I did
not like the flashpots in the begin-
ning. Even when they went off at the
right time, they did nothing but take
my attention away from the focus,
which was supposed to be on the sign
and the announcer's voice. I felt they
were unnecessary noisemakers.
In addition to these technical
aspects, I was also impressed by the
crowd's reaction to the arrival of the
outlaws at the social. However, I did
wonder why no one was scared in the
saloon the night before. It seemed
that the townspeople were only afraid
of Kent and his gang when the script
distinctly said for them to be. I felt
that perhaps the cast as a whole
could have shown a little more fear
or dislike toward the bad guys on the
whole, but that really didn't detract
from my enjoyment of the show.
What did detract from the show
was overly large background move-
ment when the focus was supposed
to be on a particular group. One ex-
ample particularly stands out in my
mind. When Kent ordered Gyp
Watson to make sure Keogh's body
was still where they left it, I almost
missed it because one of the cowboys
on the other side of the stage was
waving his arms around. I was so
busy trying to figure out what he was
doing that I completely missed see-
ing Wash sneak out after Gyp and
spent the next scene more than a
little lost
Overall, however, I feel that the
cast of "Destry" did an excellent job.
The play was enjoyable, and relatively
fast-paced. I did not pick up on any
"opening night jitters" from the cast
which made for a highly professional
.show. Even when things did not go
as they expected, the cast recovered
so quickly it left me wondering if they
expected it after all.
For example, towards the end
there were some technical problems
with the guns. More than once the
guns didn't go off, but the cast did
not show that this was a problem. I
didn't realize until after the show was
over that one of the outlaws got away
who actually should have died. As any
actor knows, covering for problems
like this is extremely difficult but the
"Destry" cast did so smoothly and
with such success that most of the
audience did not even know some-
thing was wrong.
On a scale of one to ten,
"Destry" rates an 8.

ing to put my dinner on the floor
with fighters seated beside me, I re-
tired to the plush backstage press
room. There, the fight was on, oh yes,
a TV. Though I could feel the crowd
in the bleachers above my head,
watching the fight on TV didn't
bother me. The apparent ficticious-

though the fight was live in the vry

I can watch boxing (I'm from the

title-fighting boxers get purses ten
or fifteen times more than any of
these warriors. So why is it that I'm
only bothered by the promoters of
this kind of bare-fisted competition?
Perhaps it's because the losers
in each fight of this event were truly
hurt. The referee cannot stop the
fight, only the competitor can sub-

severe lacerations are not uncom-

On Saturday night, the University
of Cincinnati found out how to win a
football game. After losing three of
their five games in the waning mo-
ments, the Bearcats pulled a surpris-
ing 13-10 victory over East Carolina
in front of a sparse crowd of 14,126.
Freshman quarterback Chad
Plummer led a balanced Bearcat of-
fense to their second victory. ECU led
10-3 at half, but as in games before,
the offense stalled and Cincinnati took
"We lost to a good football team
said Head Coach Steve Logan, who
watched his team drop to 3-3.
The Pirates led in the third quar-
ter, but a scrambling Plummer made
life hectic for the Pirate defense, in-
cluding a 30-yard dash on a third and
seven play late in the third quarter.
Eric Patterson's 1-yard run with
2:04 remaining tied the game at 10-
Pirate offense continued to
struggle in the fourth quarter as ECU
was three plays and out in two straight
series. Cincinnati took advantage, as
they drove 50 yards in 10 plays as a
27-yard field goal by Eric Richards
gave the Bearcats the lead for good.
The Pirates had one last chance
with just over a minute remaining in
the game, but Marcus Crandell was

Plummer gained 69 yards on 12

Starting cornerback for the Pi-
rates, Emmanuel McDaniel, had his
best performance of the season as he
picked off a Bearcat pass deep in the
end zone. McDaniel knew however,
that Plummer was a key difference in
the game.
"He came in and ran the option,
and we weren't really expecting it

"Our defense played well, even
with the loss of Travis said Logan.
After a scoreless first quarter,
Cincinnati got on the board first with
a 27-yard field goal by Richards to take
a 3-0 lead. ECU answered at the 7:13

Former DB killed in accident

former defensive back for ECU,
Junior Robinson was killed Oct. 1
in a freak car accident. Reports in-
dicate that Robinson was traveling
east in a westbound lane near the
Winston-Salem area. No alcohol was
involved according to reports. Wit-
nesses say he had been traveling in
the wrong direction for one-quarter
of a mile.
A native of High Point,
Robinson started his career here at
ECU in 1987 after an impressive
high school career. During his se-
nior year he rushed for 1,500 yards
and accounted for 900 yards receiv-
ing. He was very talented and stood
out on the Pirate team from the very
beginning. During his first season
Robinson returned four punts for 29
yards and 12 kicks for 219 yards.
As far as tackles, Robinson was an
expert. In a game against Cincinnati
he had five solo tackles, and later
on against Temple added another
eight tackles to his list. Against both
Illinois and Georgia Southern he re-
corded five tackles for each game.
Robinson completed his junior
year with 52 tackles and five inter-
ceptions. During that year in 1988,
he earned defensive player of the
game honors against West Virginia
and Miami, Fla. During the Miami
game Robinson picked off two
Hurricane's passes and had seven
tackles. Robinson also recorded a ca-
reer-high 10 tackles against South-
ern Miss.
During his senior year
Robinson racked up a number of
honors and awards. He was named
First Team, Associated Press All-
South Independent: Second Team
All-America, The Sporting News;
Blue-Gray All-Star Classic Partici-
pant; ECAC Honor Roll (vs. Temple);
and voted ECU Player of the Virginia
Tech Game by Media.
East Carolina wasn't the only
school to see that Robinson was go-
ing to be an outstanding player. He
was recruited by other excellent
football programs which included
South Carolina and Virginia.
Not only was this highly tal-
ented and outstanding athlete just
a football player, but he also held a
position on the ECU track team. In
the midst of his junior year he was
also a part of the 1988 Pirate 4x100-
meter relay team that qualified for
the NCAA Championships.
Robinson spent two years of his
life in the NFL. He also played de-
fensive back for the Memphis Mad
Dogs of the Canadian Football

The Lady Pirates soccer team
took on the Lady Eagles of Ameri-
can University on Saturday.Oct. 7,
here at the East Carolina Soccer
Complex. The two teams played
with bad field conditions, which
were worsened later in the first half
by more rain. The game was played
quickly with both teams coming on
strong in the first half. The second
half however, was dominated by AU.
Their intense play eventually led to
their 3-1 win over ECU.
The Pirates took control early
in the game with freshman Heather
Good, assisted by Megan Davis,
scoring the first and only goal for
ECU only a little over a minute into
the game.
"1 think the team had a very
good first half said Heather Good.
"We really worked together well
After the Pirate goal, AU an-
swered four minutes later with their
own goal to tie it at 1-1 for the re-
mainder of the first half. The first
half ended with Lady Eagle Lisa
Herndon going down with a wrist
injury. She later returned to the
game in the end of the second half
with a cast. A penalty by Davis for a
trip resulted in AU being given a
penalty kick, which was missed by
Lady Eagle Danielle Pini. Directry
after the play ECU head coach Neil
Roberts questioned the official
about a call. The official did not
appear to even listen to the ques-
tion and yellow carded Coach Rob-
erts. Also yellow carded during the
course of the match was ECU's
sophomore Barrie Gottschalk.
Both teams
came into the second
half looking tired
and sluggish, but AU
was able to overcome
this obstacle to score
two more goals, win-
ning the game. How-
ever, the second half
did not belong only
to AU. The ECU de-
fense took a domi-
nating role in the
second half with 13
saves at the goal by
seniors Joey Clark
and Maureen
Corcoran. It was a
team effort to keep
the ball out of scor-
ing range. The Lady

until past the midpoint of the sec-

scrutiny after the 1987 game in
which there was a melee on the field

expansion of the stadium in 1997,
that problem no longer exists.

been on the table from ECU's
