Around the State
(AP) - The state Department
of Agriculture announced Monday
it is fining Kmart $25,000 for over-
charging customers at five North
Carolina stores.
Surprise inspections at the
stores turned up 117 instances
where customers were overcharged
on 1,550 randomly selected items,
including a comforter at Kmart's
Statesville store that was marked
$24.99 but when scanned a a reg-
ister, sold for $39.99.
(AP)- North Carolina farmers
faced with a future of uncertain
tobacco profits are turning to a fa-
miliar friend to make up for lost
revenues: cotton.
Cotton planting increased 65
percent this year after last year's
crop brought some of the highest
prices since the Civil War and grow-
ers sought to get in on the bonanza.
Last year's benchmark was1
a pound. The price has declined in
recent weeks to about 82 cents a
pound due to weather and other
factors. But the potential for suc-
cess in the years ahead remains
high.

(AP) - Former police Sgt.
Stacey Koon left prison Monday and
headed to a halfway house where
he will serve the remainder of his
30-month sentence for the 1991
videotaped beating of Rodney King
in Los Angeles.
Koon, 44, left the Sheridan
Federal Correction Institution
southwest of Portland, Ore early
Monday, said Dennis Gnossini, a
spokesman for the Federal Bureau
of Prisons' Western Region.

Around the World
(AP) - A pipe-laying barge with
245 people on board sank in the
Bay of Campeche off the coast of
Mexico in �eas whipped up by Hur-
ricane Roxanne, killing three
people, the U.S. Coast Guard said
Monday.
A helicopter was searching for

(AP) - Saddam Hussein won
the endorsement of almost every
Iraqi voter to rule for seven more
years, according to his government,
which whipped up street demonstra-
tions Monday in support of the iso-
lated and hard-pressed leader.
Analysts believe Saddam used
the presidential referendum on Sun-
day to stir up nationalism in the
country of 20 million and distract
the nation's attention from the de-
fection of a top official, a devastated
economy and sharp criticism from
the United Nations.
Downtown fair soaked with culture
Stewart King
Staff Writer
The rain in Spain fell mainly in
Greenville this Saturday at the an-
nual International Festival. People
gathered at the downtown mall were
not discouraged by the rain, however.
From Dutch funnel cakes to Egyp-
tian heiroglyphics, the festival pro-
vided a taste of culture for everyone.
"We provide different types of
artistic events, projects and program-
ming for the community at large
said Deborah Morrison of the Pitt
County Arts Council. The festival
started at 11 a.m. and thrived into
the late afternoon.
Strolling along the brick plaza,
the smell of skewered pork wafting
along with the lilting music of the
bagpipes, one couldalmost imagine
being somewhere else but where?
A quick trip to the Philippines
was in order, with the Philippine
dancers kicking up heels at 11 a.m.
Thereat , a skip to Spain for some
music con gusto, then a dip into the
Middle East for some belly dancing.
Hungry? No problemo, what are
your taste buds throbbing for today?
Perhaps some Mexican from Chico's,
some Polynesian, some Oriental or
even some ice cream from good old
USA could fill the void.
"We get to see all types of dif-
ferent people from different back-
grounds, interacting with each other,
especially in an artistic way
Morrison said, and cultural interac-
tion was at its prime for the Emer-
ald City. Young Nick Williams was
sporting a T-shirt depicting an Afri-
can-American version of Beavis &
Butthead. Olive-skinned women
wrapped in multi-colored sarongs
glided through the booths and
haggled over prices. An elderly Span-
ish representative of the Voice of
America (VOA) sat smoking a pipe
and smiling at passersby.
The festival also featured craft
booths with international themes.
Authentic reproductions of African,
Indian and Native American art were
on display and for sale.
Due to foul weather, turnout was
not as large as last year but, the
clouds opened on several occasions
to shine sunlight on downtown.
Children ran laughing, dodging
through the throngs of people, their
tiny faces covered by paint (courtesy
of Gamma Gamma Sigma).
One booth had rocks from all
over, some smooth and polished,
some halved and polished, some just
rocks sitting on a table.
A contingency from the Nation
of Islam had an exhibit set up, as did
the American Heart Association, Pitt
County Art Council and ECU'S own
International students. Vive la
diferencia.

Men unite at nation's capitol
(AP) - Praying, chanting and rev-
eling in a day of racial pride and broth-
erhood, vast numbers of black men
stood united Monday to dedicate them-
selves to uplifting each other and their
families.
In a dramatic finale, Nation of Is-
lam leader Louis Farrakhan proclaimed
divine guidance in bringing to Wash-
ington the largest assemblage of black
Americans since the 1963 March on
Washington.
The "Million Man March" had crit-
ics who cited Farrakhan's inflammatory
statements about Jews, Catholics, gays
and Asians, but he brushed them aside.
"Whether you like it or not, God
brought the idea through me, and he
didn't bring it through me because my
heart was dark with hatred and anti-
Semitism Farrakhan said.
"If my heart was that dark, how is
the message so bright?"
The throng stretched for blocks
from the foot of the Capitol down the
grassy expanse of the national Mall. The
day was chilly but bright, the mood se-
rious yet buoyant
"There is no violence here, no rac-
ism said Omar Holt of Detroit "It's
very moving
Young men dressed in jeans,
sweatshirts and jackets dominated the
crowd. But men of all ages were jammed
shoulder-to-shoulder in front of the
stage. Others climbed onto statues, light
posts and trees for a better view. A few
waded through the Reflecting Pool, one
wearing few if any clothes.
"It's a healing feeling to see so
many black men come together, and not
a whole bunch of violence or drugs or
all that stuff said Donald Simms of
the Brooklyn borough of New York City.
"This whole thing is about self-respect"
People lined up lfdeep aiound the
food vendors, and the mixed aromas of
barbecue and vegetarian curries filled
the air. Scores of Nation of Islam mem-
bers, standing erect in suits and their
trademark bow ties, lent an air of so-
lemnity.
Civil rights veterans Jesse Jackson,
Rosa Parks and Dick Gregory were
among dozens of back-to-back speaters

establish new
homecoming event
Marguerite Benjamin
Senior Writer
Several students have voiced
their concern over the lack of cul-
tural representation in the annual
homecoming festivities and have de-
cided on a way to celebrate cultural
diversity and display "360 Degrees
of Pride
On Wednesday, Oct. 18, the first
Miss ECU Nubian Queen will be
crowned in Mendenhall Student Cen-
ter (MSC).
Darrell Armstead, a pageant
committee member who also serves
as Cultural Awareness Committee
Chairperson, said representatives of
all of the minority organizations on
campus met and decided on having
the pageant in September.
"The pageant is getting support
from all of our groups, including the
gospel choir, the panhellenic coun-
cil and Allied Blacks for Leadership
and Equality (ABLE) Armstead
said.
According to Armstead. the pag-
eant is open to females of all races,
although it is geared more toward
representing women of color. Cur-
rently, the pageant has representa-
tives from the African-American, His-
panic and Mulatto cultures. The 11
contestants competing must hold at
least a 2.5 GPA.
"Since the winner will be repre-
senting minority women on our cam-
pus Armstead said. "Academics are
very important, and even if contes-
tants are in the freshman class or are
transfer students, we're making it
mandatory that they bring in at least
a 2.5 GPA from former schools
Armstead said each contestant
must have participated in some form
of community service since being en-
rolled at ECU.
"Contestants will be judged on
interviews in business attire, talent,
formal wear and overall presenta-
tion Armstead said. "If the winner
is African-American, Brian Haynes,
assistant vice-chancellor of minority
student affairs, will try to enter the
queen in the Miss National African-
American Collegiate Pageant
Haynes is also working to make the
pageant an annual event
The pageant is sponsored by all
campus minority organizations. Pag-
eant committee members are Darrell
Armstead, Stacey Hargrove, Danielle
E. Munro and Brennon G. Bohol.
The contestants are Christy
Lock, freshman; Glodeliz Rodriguez,

Students find opportunities through volunteering
Wendy Rountree
Assistant News Editor
Helping an adult learn how to
read or watching a sick child smile
for the first time in weeks are only
some of the benefits students can re-
ceive by volunteering their time.
Over the last six years, the ECU
Student Volunteer Program, which
began in 1989 as a pilot program on
a grant, has drawn more and more
students.
"Every semester since we've
started the number has increased
said Judy Baker, director of ECU Stu-
dent Volunteer Program through the
Health Education Department. "We
have not had a semester where the
number has gone down
The program works with 58 agen-
cies across Greenville and Pitt County.
Some of the agencies students can
volunteer for are the following: Ad-
ventures in Health, a health education
museum for children; American Red
Cross; Association of Retarded Citi-
zens and the Dream Factory, an orga-
nization that raises money and grants
wishes to chronically and terminally
ill children.
"We also provide tutors for
afterschool programs at area elemen-
tary schools Baker said.
Student development is the pur-
pose for the volunteer program.
"The program's purpose is to
motivate students to be community
responsible she said. "One of the
best ways to do that is through
volunteerism
Baker said she gives talks and
packets on how to volunteer to mem-
bers of interested dubs
and organizations.
The program is now
sponsored by the Health
and Human Performance
(School) and the Health
Education Department
and is no longer depen-
dent upon grant money.
"The nice thing
about that is that I don't
have to go out and find
money Baker said. "It's
in our budget now. We
are very appreciative of
that
Baker said she is
also appreciative to the
Student Government As-
sociation (SGA) because this year it
decided to pay for the mandatory in-
surance policy each student must have

Renter's insurance eases loss
Tambra Zion
News Editor
Indiana State University student gets big payday
After working 29 hours as a tutor for the Student Academic Services
Center, John Andrews received a paycheck for $6,491.22.
When he received his check, Andrews, a nursing major, first looked
at the year-to-date totals to see how much he had made for the year. When
he saw it was more than $11,000, ne couldn't believe his eyes.
Andrews said he returned the money because he knew it came from
the Perkins Grant, whose funds pay for tutors for associate degree-seek-
ing students.
He said he thought about how many students the money would pay
for.
Andrews said he liked having that much money in his hands and een
made a photocopy of the check as a keepsake.
"I was pretty wealthy there for a while he said.
Reggae Fest III at N.C. State experiences trials and tribulations
Scents of jerk chicken and incense wafted down the halls,
Caribbean music filled the air and brightly dressed people covered the
dance floor at Reggae Fest III.
The festival was almost over before it began, though.
The festival, originally slated to be held on Harris Field outside the
Witherspoon Student Center, was moved inside the Student Center Ball-
room due to the threat of rain.
The several hundred party-goers soon found themselves outside again,
however.
According to George James, who was selling hand-woven hats and
shoes at a stand, a fire drill interrupted the party soon after it began. But
that did not stop the party, he said.
"They got everything in order James said. "We've been jammin
ever since
Noise complaint stops show at Middle Tennessee State University
The Music on the Knoll concert was shut down by Murfreesboro po-
lice and MTSU Public Safety after complaints about noise were received
from the community.
Some students who were present when Public Safety shut down the
concert said the complaints received were from whites who did not want
"black" music played at MTSU.
"What happened today was very wrong, because every Friday you
have the white people out there with their music, and this is the first time
we got to have our own thing on the Knoll, and they had to break it up
within an hour said Shawna Virginia, an African-American student.
Brooke Blomquist, concerts chairperson for the Student Program-
ming Committee, also found the reasoning without merit.
Compiled by Wendy Rountree. Taken from various college newspapers.
Imagine losing everything except
the clothes on your back to fire, theft
or some other type of disaster and
possibly even finding yourself respon-
sible for your neighbor's losses.
Renter's insurance is available at rea-
sonable prices and may be a sound
investment for college students.
"A lot of people don't realize that
if they live in an apartment, they think
their landloards insurance would
cover their personal belongings, all
that really covers is the structure
said Jayna Neaglc of the Insurance
Information Institute (III), a non-profit
organization. "If you cause a fire
and it not only bums down your apart-
ment, but the whole building, your
landlord could sue you for liability
Renter's insurance can usually be
purchased for less than $200 a year
for policy coverage of up to $20,000,
according to some Greenville insur-
ance agencies.
"Within the city limits, it varies
on the policy said Suzanne Riggs.
office manager for Nationwide Insur-
ance. "It usually runs from $130 to
$145 a year and depends on how
many apartments
are in a building
She said
renter's insur-
ance covers a
wide array of
damage including
lightning, theft,
riots, weight of
ice or snow and
even aircraft col-
lision among
other things.
"A lot of
people don't
know about it
(renter's insur-
ance) Riggs
said. She has written around 50 poli-
cies for students.
Riggs said residence hall stu-
dents can also purchase renter's in-
surance, but she has yet to take out
, AH! u
a policy for such a student.
"I didn't really bring valuable
stuff to school because I knew some-
body would steal it said Summer
Starnes, a sophomore who lives on
campus. "The
only thing I
brought that, was
valuable was my
stereo
Starnes said
ECU police en-
graved the back
of her stereo with
an identification
number, a service
offered to all cam-
pus residents.
She said that her
jewelry is insured
through credit
cards and that
she would prob-
ably rely on her parents to replace
any of her belongings if stolen.
Coverage can be obtained under
a parent's policy, Riggs said, even if
they live out of state. Coverage var-

ies widely and students would need
to contact an agent in order to learn
about individual policies.
"It's each individual student � if
you have two roommates, each would
have to get a separate policy Riggs
said.
Bill McDonald Insurance allows
students to split the cost of a policy.
"A lot of times it surprises people
how cheap it is said Vicky Whitaker,
an insurance agent for Bill McDonald
Insurance. "A lot of kids don't re-
alize this covers your books, your
computer and liability
Whitaker said students often
purchase renter's insurance when
transferring vehicles with the agency
and payments can be added to car
insurance or split into quarterly or
semi-annual payments.
Ill recommends talking with
friends who have insurance or ask-
ing parents where to go when seek-
ing a renter's policy. The North Caro-
lina Department of Insurance is also
available at (919) 733-7349 for an-
swering renter's insurance questions.

who spoke from behind bulletproof
glass. Stevie Wonder sang briefly and
�u Maya Angelou read a poem urging the
crowd to do right by itself and "save
your race
Giant speakers and video screens
i. were set up around the Mall, but most
�i men couidn't get near enough to them
to benefit "We can't hear said Harold
3 Johnson of Reading, Pa "but we can
, feel the important reel of it"
I The event often had the feeling of
a revival meeting, with men clapping
u and singing along with church choirs,
. then bowing their heads in prayer.
At one point like collection plates
in a church, cardboard boxes and plas-
�tic bags were passed through the crowd
a for contributions to defray the cost of
u the event and began a black economic
development fund. Each time a bag was
filled, organizers hoisted it into the air
to the cheers of the crowd that waved
dollar bills in the air.
.v By mid-morning, coorganizer Ben-
jamin Chavis Jr. said the crowd had
passed the one million mark. The Na-
-tional Park Service said it would pro-
vide its own estimate in the afternoon,
using pictures taken from helicopters.
Several women spoke on stage, but
few were scattered through the crowd.
Farrakhan had asked them to stay home
to pray, fast and teach the children. He
also asked all black Americans to stay
home from work or school and avoid
spending money.
Phillippa Braxton of suburban Lau-
rel, Md came to the Mall to lend sup-
port to the men, saying, "This will show
America that the black man isn't some
gun-toting, drug-selling stereotype that's
portrayed in the media
At a speech in Austin, Texas, Presi-
dent Clinton praised the rally as an event
for "black men taking renewed respon-
sibility for themselves, their families and
their communities
But he expressed disapproval of
Farrakhan. Without mentioning the Na-
tion of Islam minister by name, the presi-
dent clearly criticized Farrakhan's ex-
plosive rhetoric that has brought
charges of anti-Semitism, sexism and
bigotry.
"One million men do not make
right one man's message of malice and
division Clinton said.
Farrakhan said Clinton "did not dig
deep enough" to find a solution to the
racial divide.
"Abraham Lincoln saw in his day
what President Clinton sees in this day
Farrakhan told the crowd. "He saw the
great divide between black and white.
There are still two Americas - one
black, one white, separate and unequal
Before the march, some black lead-
ers who endorsed the event also con-
demned Farrakhan's incendiary words.
But many on the stage and in the crowd
praised his leadership.
"It's too bad we can't have Martin
Luther King or Malcolm X, but we have
to take what we have said Pierre
Brown of Newbuigh, N.Y. "That's why
we hold him so dear to us. He's the only
one we have left who will speak out"
District of Columbia police re-
ported no serious altercations. One eld-
erly man died after suffering a heart
attack in the midst of the rally.
Men began gathering on the Mall
just after midnight when the tempera-
ture was in the 50s. Many brought flash-
lights, sleeping bags and tape decks. The
first prayers and African drumming were
scheduled to begin at 5 a.m but they
started more than two hours late.
The tone on stage was generally

Student volunteers are required
to have insurance policies because of
liability concerns and possible acci-
dents that could happen while they
are volunteering on the job, particu-
larly jobs helping disadvantaged chil-
dren and elderly persons with special
needs.
The policy is just extra protec-
tion, because in North Carolina, vol-
unteers are protected from liability.
Even though a number of stu-
dents volunteer because it is a require-
ment for their degree programs, Baker
said all students profit from their ex-
periences.
"Regardless of the reasons they
began, it's the end result that's im-
portant" Baker said.
She said students volunteer for
other reasons, too, such as to experi-
ence different careers before commit-
ting to one for the rest of their lives.
She also said she knows students who
have received jobs from their volun-
teer experience, and has written ref-
erences for job-seeking students.
"That's why we are also a refer-
ence center Baker said.
Other students have more per-
sonal reasons for volunteering.
"Many persons volunteer for their
own internal benefit not for a grade
or a requirement" Baker said. "Their
reward is internal rather than exter-

Veterans peddle poppies
Staff Reports
While you're attending the Home-
coming parade or are tailgating with
your friends, members of the Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars (VFW) will be
educating the public on the meaning
of the buddy poppy.
In an effort to raise funds to help
disabled, homeless and sick veterans
and their families, the VFW will be in
locations around Greenville, including
Kroger supermarket, the post offices
and several banks asking for dona-
tions for their buddy poppies.
World War II veteran Hugh
McGowan, Jr. wants more students
and young adults to understand what

the poppy represents.
"The students we saw (in the
past) didn't know anything about
them and now we're getting more
college students than ever before
McGowan said.
McGowan, who is 75 years old
and disabled, plans to pass out be-
tween 1,500 and 2,000 by himself. At
his last event, he handed out over
1,000.
The buddy poppy was copy-
righted in 1924 by the VFW. At that
time the poppies were constructed of
red tissue paper, and handcrafted by
French women. To these women, the
poppies represented the blood shed
by the soldiers. To McGowan, the pop-
pies have a similar meaning. Today,
the poppy is a more durable silky fab-
ric.
"The poppies reveal the sacrifices
of the bodies lying overseas he said.
McGowan served as a reconnais-
sance officer in Africa, Sicily and Italy.
He recalls serving under General
George S. Patton, Jr.
"He was a tough guy he said.
"He loved war and I admired him
McGowan said other groups in-
cluding the Disabled American Veter-
ans under Commander Lee Pascasio
and the American Legion under Mark
Qualliotine, commander, each have
their own poppy days, but the VFW
chose Homecoming weekend years
ago and continues to hold the poppy
weekend annually.
Family slain by teen son
(AP) - A teen-ager threw
nightly parties at his home as the
decomposing bodies of his mother,
stepfather and stepsister lay
nearby. He told friends the stench
came from a dead cat, or maybe it
was the sewer.
Aaron Flick Hodge, 17, was be-
ing held without bond on three
counts of murder. He was sched-
uled for a court appearance in
Little Rock, Ark. Monday.
Authorities know of no motive
for the killings.
The bodies of David Flick, 36,
his wife, Barbara, 34, and their
daughter, Andria, 11, were found
Saturday in their single-story home
in Rector, a town of about 2,300
near the Missouri border.
Police Chief Tommy Baker said
the three, last seen alive around
Oct. 7, had been dead for several
days.
By the time of a party last
Wednesday night, the odor was
strong, Hodge's friends told the
Jonesboro Sun, and they suspected
something was wrong.
"If you were inside, he would
say that a cat had died said Nick
Green, a 14-year-old neighbor of the
Flick family. "If you asked him
about (the odor) outside, he would
say it's just sewage backed up
Scott Mitchell, 17, who said he
attended three or four of the par-
ties, said, "He had them all week.
Day and night
Seth Cohn, 18, said Hodge, a
high school senior, skipped classes
every day last week, and told a
classmate that he would "probably
be arrested" by Friday.

The East Carolinian
Our View
A year ago, when this whole mess started, the editorial board
of the East Carolinian voted not to cover the OJ Simpson trial.
After the infamous slow-motion car chase, the arrest, the OJ
suicide watch and all the rest, we felt this sordid little affair had
already gotten a lot more press than it deserved.
The media circus of the past year has proven us right. We
had lawyers pleading their cases more to the cameras than to
the judge and jury.
We had normally responsible TV news networks devoting
full days to OJ coverage when the world was still happening all
around us. We had a fairly simple murder trial stretched out to
an unusual length for even our snail-like legal system. And why?
Because OJ Simpson is a celebrity.
But really, he's not much of a celebrity, is he? He was a
great sports star 20 years ago. He was a movie star but he
never actually made very many movies, and the ones he did
make seldom featured him in a starring role. He was a sports
caster but would we care so much if Bob Costas had killed
somebody?
Why do we even give a damn about OJ Simpson? Through
the whole trial process, this has been the most important ques-
tion. Especially baffling is the way OJ has become such a hot
racial issue. As African American celebrities go, OJ's not such a
hot commodity (well, not before the trial, anyway).
This makes the racial issue especially troubling. The coun-
try didn't split along racial lines because OJ was such a special
person. The racial tension surrounding OJ was already present,
it was made worse by media over-exposure, and the outcome of
the trial hasn't done anything to make it go away.
Still I must ask, why do we care? OJ has, for whatever rea-
son, become our generation's Kennedy assassination. Most of
us here at The East Carolinian offices can remember what we
were doing when we heard that OJ Simpson was wanted for
murder. This wasn't a traumatic event for most of us; why do
we remember it so clearly?
Because the media drummed OJ into our heads. Wherever
you went this past year, you couldn't escape it. OJ Simpson's
placid countenance was plastered all over TV screens and news-
paper front pages across the country. If the media was giving
this thing so much attention, it must be important. Our initial

interest in the OJ case spurred the media to give us more, and
the frenzy with which they gave it to us convinced us that we
needed to keep on watching.
But now it's over, and we at The East Carolinian have but
one thing to say: Thank God!
Quick, get him while he's sick
The following is a transcript of
an actual telephone conversation I
had yesterday evening, around 8 p.m
(Phone rings; once, twice, three
times and is picked up by Brian.)
B: (congested, irritated) What,
what, whatf
N: (deep, booming voice from the
other end) Hello, Brian, this is the
Nicotine god calling. How are you
doing?
B: (sniffles) I'm so sick I almost
wish I were dead, except my
girlfriend's still alive and well, and I'm
not going anywhere without her.
N: (chuckles) I see that your ill-
ness hasn't dampened that positive
attitude of yours. I always liked that
about you. As you know, direct com-
munication is not a standard policy
of mine
B: I'm honored, really.
N: (chuckles again) Of course you
are, of course you are (suddenly se-
rious) Brian, there's been some un-
pleasant talk around the Office of Ad-
dictions that you're trying to quit
smoking again.
B: Yeah, well
N: No, no, hear me out I know
there was that unpleasant business
over the summer where you'd wan-
dered from the path for those two
awful months - and I can assure you
that you were sorely missed, Brian.
But that's in the past, and anyway,
everyone's allowed at least one slip-
up, you know.
B: Your tolerance is most gener-
ous, Magnificence.
N: (pleased) You see, that's an-
other thing I've always liked about
you, Brian - you know how to show
respect Not like all these other flip-
pant punks and creeps who swagger
along, so smug and sure of themselves

this behavior of yours I find very trou-

B: No.
N: Haven't I always surprised you
every now and then with an unbeliev-

B: Yes.

of the greatest gifts at my disposal -

Two weeks and a pumpkin
What is Homecoming? Does this
sound like a silly question? Is there
any one out there that can rid my
mind of this burning question? I think
I should explain more about my prob-
lem. I simply do not understand the
function and motivation for Home-
coming.
I went to a small high school
where we did not even have homecom-
ing. I know - how is he supposed to
understand Homecoming if he has
never taken part in it? Wrong. I've
been to many Homecoming games
and attended Homecoming parades
and I've even attended Homecoming
at my church. I still don't get it.
At church, the only reason for the
tag was to get people back into the
church that had either been out of
state for an extended period of time,
or were attending other churches.
There were no floats. At no time dur-
ing any sermon that I heard were
there big flower-covered pickup trucks
driving down the aisle.
Maybe that's because church
doesn't have a halftime.
Attending Homecoming football
games at the neighboring schools al-
ways threw me back into the same tail-
spin because the only real difference
between this football game and any
other was that the team that they were
playing often had a record, something
like two and 15, and if they killed this
team on this day the party afterwards
Patrick Ware
Opinion Columnist
How many of
you actually care
that this next
weekend is
Homecoming?
would be just a little bit crazier.
From an outsider's point of view,
which I'm sure a lot of you have, but
are just afraid to admit it, all I can see
is that alumni get real excited. Frater-
nities have even cooler parties, and
somebody upstairs schedules a patsy
for our football game. This is it I see
no other function. Homecoming af-
fects me so little that I never even
bothered to find out what it was for.
I know that there is a group of
students, and maybe faculty that share
my confusion. I have written this to
speak to all of you who sit at home
and wonder why everyone is getting
extra pumped for a weekend that re-
ally has no extra significance. To me,
the only difference between Home-
coming and Halloween is a couple of
weeks and a pumpkin.
I guess it is only fair to give whq-
ever it is that created this holiday -4
so to speak � proper gratitude. Thank
you person or people who h�e given
our wallet-sized football schedules a
special day. I know that somebody
must be working hard getting all of
the decorations together for whateve
is supposed to happen. Is it easier t$
play football when it's Homecoming?,
How many of you actually care!
that this next weekend is Homecom-
ing? If you scream that out in front of
student stores (which we all know is
my favorite place to hang) people will
not even flinch except for a couple of
Greek people (not people from Greece
- you know) who will hoop and
scream "go Pirates or something, iri
an attempt to look cool.
If you need a day to come back
to Greenville and relive your college
years then do it when it's convenient
to your schedule. I think if s great that
people want to come back and rememf
ber all of those times when, well yod
know, but don't fool yourself intd
thinking that this weekend is special
to everyone because it's not and it's
not because nothing really happens
I think that there should be a bet-
ter definition in my mind of Home-
coming other than " just another ex-
cuse to drink This is not my thought
about the weekend. I'm going to
church.
It's a techie world after all
that day.
N: So you see that whatever the
problem is, I can help you (assuming
imperial tone). I am feeling generous
today, so how about this I will up-
grade your lungs' stamina so that you
will be able to change cigarette brands
to Lucky Strikes.
B: But Magnificence
N: Now, now. I know it's been
bothering you that most people you
know smoke Camels when you've
been smoking Marlboros.
B: Thank you, Magnificence, but
it's not about fitting in.
N: Of course it is! If you were to
quit where would you be whenever
your friends step outside the art build-
ing for a quick smoke, hm? Left alone
in the studio, all by yourself, that's
where.
B: I can use the extra time to
work, Magnificence.
N: (scoffing) Extra time. Who
works all the time?
B: Michelangelo did. Magnifi-
cence.
N: But you're no Michelangelo,
surely.
B: With all respect, Magnifi-
cence, I know that, but I can better
myself at what I do if I can follow
such a work ethic, even if the end
result fails to measure up to the pre-
conceived standards. At least I've
made the best effort I could.
N: (sighs) Oh, Brian 24 hours
without a cigarette, and look what
it's done to you. You're talking non-
sense (long pause). Well, if your
mind's made up about this, I'll be
going, then. I'll stop by in about a
week or so to see how you're getting
along.
B: And to see if I've reconsid-
ered, Magnificence?
N: (laughs heartily) Take care of
yourself, Brian. I'll be in touch again
very soon.
(N hangs up. B hangs up)
B: I really hate that guy.
I have been pondering the follow-
ing subject for quite a while now. In fact
if I do not speak out about it soon, I'm
liable to explode. Okay, in one phrase
here it is - technology is ruining our
lives.
Our founding fathers (or should I
say "Founding Parents to be politically
correct) were not plugged into Netscape
to converse with one another. They did
not e-mail each other with ideas when
they decided to construct the Constitu-
tion and they surely did not need to fax
their ideas around.
Truly, technology is a great wonder
that has marveled people for years now.
In fact I am typing this article on a com-
puter. Not just any computer, the
Macintosh ftrforma 636CD. What that
all means to me is that technology works.
In my apartment I have a computer, true.
It is seven years old, and it does not work.
That is how technology-oriented I am.
I refuse to allow my life to be led by
technology. Yet this ideal is put to the
test everywhere 1 go. Yesterday, I went
to your typical burger joint and ordered
my lunch. The server had to type it up
on a computer to alert the guy standing
right behind her what I was ordering. I
do not see the difficulty in him opening
his ears up and remembering what I or-
dered.
At the pizza place that I work at
we keep all orders on computer. We can
see what time a customer ordered a pizza,
where they live and how long until the
pizza should arrive. In fact when a cus-
tomer calls up and they have ordered
from us before, we can tell them their
Brian Lewis Burns

I often wonder
what life would
be like without
all this
technology.
previous order and see if they want to
order it again.
This to me seems too much. I would
be content with a person called up and I
just wrote down the order. This requires
a little bit of that manual dexterity that
today's society is allowing to become lax.
Again, the advocates for this technology
might say that typing on a computer
builds up one's motor development skills.
This is true, it can build up such skills.
So can playing the piano.
What ever happened to the United
States Postal Service? With e-mail,
Netscape and faxing, I'm surprised out
nation's postal service has not gone bank-
rupt! All of these previous services elimi-
nate all personal contact and remove all
emotion from the letters.
With Netscape, you can do more
that write letters. You can visit museums,
look at pictures, even play games. This
seems like a load over my head. I go to
the computer labs here on campus when
I have to type a paper, and you would
not believe the sight before my eyes. I
see literally dozens of people zoned out
with their faces glued to the monitor,
"surfing the Net" If I ever become that
bad, I hope that someone takes a sledge
hammer and bashes in the computer and
frees me from my bondage.
I often wonder, as I am sure others
do as well, what life would be like with-
out all this technology. All that comes to
my mind is the 70s. Guys going to disco's
in their leisure suits and platform shoes.
Music like "Staying Alive" by the Bee-
Gee's playing in the background
Yet the sad fact is that I can not
draw up any kind of sensible picture. I
have been raised in a technology-based
society that has controlled most of
everyone's existence. It is my recommen-
dation that everyone out there in
Netscape world log off and step away
from the terminal. If necessary, take baby
steps away from the terminal. Slowly turn
around and leave the computer lab, DO
NOT LOOK BACK!
This could very well be the only
solution in this techie-world. We will sur-
vive without it Some people might h�e
to switch from fax to phone, others may
need to switch from e-mail to postal mail.
Either way, do not allow your life to be
run by machines. We are the one's that
built them, and we should be the one's
to control them, not the other way
around.
I think I am going to go now and
live a non-technological life, where I can
dream about happiness and typewriters.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Your recent editorial warning
that ECU might suffer from the con-
sequences of the legislative action
permitting the two "flagship" UNC
campuses, to the exclusion of other
campuses, to possible increase tuition
to raise faculty salaries was right on
target However, not only is our ad-
ministration to bt held accountable
for leadership and effective commu-
nication in these matters, but where
(is) our Board of Trustees and Board
of Visitors in trying to change the
action? More importantly, what stand
did (will) the eastern North Carolina
Legislative delegation make fo secure
even and fair treatment for ECU? The
ECU Board of Trustees and the UNC
System Board of Governors are ulti-
mately responsible for our campus.
These Boards are heavily influenced
by our elected state legislators instead
of vice versa. Let's focus our atten-
tion on our area legislators and find
out how they voted for fairness and
equality across the UNC System and
what they are going to do exactly to
help build a quality institution in
Greenville by which all of the State
can be proud. This needs to be accom-
plished in advance of the next state-
wide election. I would suggest that a
"Public Resnonsi Evaluation" group
be composed of interested students
and facultv members to monitor and
evaluate the discussion and actions
(votes) of all of the above-mentioned
groups, including the ECU adminis-
tration, that related to building a qual-
ity ECU, and report this information,
with critique, to the regional press
and to the public.
"Own-up time is crunch time and
is NOW. Students, staff, faculty,
alumni, administrators and their fami-
lies vote - enough said? We need to
vote for and support a better ECU.

Little seafood is

"A Drop in the Bucket" is
just what it claims to be: a very
tiny drop in the great scream-
ing bucket of American media
opinion. Take it as you will
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
Put simply, America is neu-
rotic. We've got a massive fear
of failure that triggers a nation-
wide guilt complex that we in
turn sublimate and cover with a
false sense of bravado. We are a
young nation, full of hope and
aspirations, that woke one morn-
ing to find itself middle-aged. The
millennial dreams of our
founders have not exactly come
true, and it's given us an apoca-
lyptic mid-life crisis of monstrous
proportions.
But who could see that com-
ing in America's infancy? This
country was founded as the pro-
verbial better place, the "shining
city on the hill It must have
seemed almost like walking into
the Garden of Eden for the first
settlers, the perfect place to start
a new life. Despite the day-to-day
struggle of survival and explora-
tion, the certainty of America's
millennial future seemed assured.
But as the 20th century has
progressed, we seem to have
been reinventing the future more
and more often. The optimistic
hedonism of the 1920s gave way
to the Great Depression (which
was as much emotional as eco-
nomic) of the '30s, which in turn
gave way to the renewed national
spirit of World War II. It was in
the second world war, in fart,
that the latest millennial dream
was conceived: America as Glo-
bal Savior.
After the near-complete
dashing of national hopes by the
depression, our role in World
War II was a great rejuvenator.
Riding in like the cavalry to save
the Allied forces, America had a
national drive again. We rode
that millennial horse right on
into the '50s, as our government
set up covert agencies (the fetal
CIA) that in turn began putting
puppet regimes in place, dotting
the third world with American in-
fluence in the name of halting
the spread of godless commu-
nism. It was communism, in fart,
that allowed us to continue hold-
ing onto our millennial dream
through the '50s. America would
lead the world to a new era of
prosperity, with Washington, the
shining city that would govern it
all. The American millennium
became the American Empire.
Of course, the '60s came
along and shattered all that.
American involvement in Viet-
nam led to social strife, and this
time the millennial armor started
to burst at the seams. With the
Watergate scandal in 1973, what-
ever was left of that armor was
bashed away completely and the
American millennial dream died
a messy death.
Despite the best attempts of
Ronald Reagan and company to
revive that millennial spirit the
country just wasn't buying it.
Even though the images of
"morning in America" were
pushed on the country, the pro-
liferation of Mad Max-style post-
apocalyptic films in the '80s tells
me that America really thought
it was twilight
Now we're left with the con-
tinuing malaise of the apoca-
lypse. It doesn't help matters that
the chronological millennium
will be turning in five years. We
expect the end of the world any
day now, as we look at the world
through our millennial goggles.

Make Halloween
costumes on a
student budget
Jennifer Coleman
Senior Writer
This is no ordinary stress. This is
monumental stress. This is the kind of
stress that causes normally intelligent
college students to have complete ner-
vous breakdowns. This is the kind of
stress that most people will never re-
cover from.
No, it's not exam time. Rent isn't
due until the beginning of the month.
What is causing this overabundance of
stress?
It's one week until Halloween is
your costume ready?
Don't panic. There is still time to
come up with a great Halloween cos-
tume. But first you have to decide what
kind of costume you want Should store-
bought prevail this season, or should
imaginations run wild? Let's look at the
options.
As far as store-bought costumes go,
the sky is the limit At local costume
shops, catalogues are available that con-
tain costumes for even the pickiest Hal-
loween consumer They have quite a
selection of masks, as well as cartoons
and movie heroes. From Raggedy Ann
to Batman to the Mask, your personal
favorite can often be ordered within two
days if it's still in stock. Prices range
from $20 to much more than $200, but
hey, it's Halloween! The sky is the limit!
If your limit doesn't quite reach the
sky, and in fact hardly gets off the
ground, there are some options for you,
too. Many great low-budget costumes
are available at your local Wal-Mart
Witches, wizards and maids can all be
found in the costume section, and most
for under $30. Make-up kits can turn
you into a werewolf or Dracula with just
a few simple supplies and a mirror.
There's also a great selection of Hallow-
een decorations and extras, like fake
blood and wigs, gracing those spooky
aisles.
If you happen to be one of the
people whose costume budget not only
doesn't get off the ground but is buried
up to its neck, there are options for you,
too. Believe it or not homemade cos-
tumes are getting better than ever. Here
are just a few ideas for costumes that
can be made at home.
For those people with little time
(or just very little imagination) there is
always the old standby - cut two holes
in a white sheet and go as a ghost A
cop-out yes, but for those people who
forget about Halloween until the first
greedy costumed spook arrives at their
door, it's a lifesaver! If you really want
to save some money, use your
roommate's sheets. A hint for those of
you without white sheets, however -
Pocahontas prints aren't very scary.
Another great idea is to go as a
clown. Just take a wild assortment of
clothes (make sure nothing matches)
and a little face paint and go! Some ac-
cessories might be a bunch of balloons,
some party favors or tennis balls if you

Another new restaurant opened
downtown a few weeks ago. The Un-

fresh seafood, a wide variety of im-
port beers and an over-21-only policy
in the evening hours. Sounds great
so far.
There're no other seafood places
in the downtown area and Corrigan's
is the only other downtown establish-

through the door. Someone has finally
created a market for "older" students.
Gone are the days of fighting
through crowds at BW-3 for a few
wings or a burger. Also gone are the
days of bumping into younger folks
vigorously washing their hands to re-

they can sneak a beer or two. I never
really understood how a bar that
didn't charge a cover could make its
money allowing underage people

Standard plot makes for
some not so Strange Days
Dale Williamson
Staff Writer
A few months ago, I sat in a movie theater eagerly wait-
ing to see Die Hard With a Vengeance. Before the Bruce
Willis epic began, a movie trailer for Strange Days dazzled
me. The preview featured several close-ups of Ralph Fiennes
spliced together as he spouted such catchy lines as "Have you
ever wire tripped? Ah, a virgin brain The trailer gave me
little indication about the plot of the film, but it was daring,
unique and a little strange. I had high hopes the film would
carry the same impact
Well, Strange Days is finally here, and to my dismay the
film is not daring enough, fails to completely embrace its
unique potential and settles for a plot that is more standard
than strange.
Written by James Cameron and Jay Cocks and directed
by Kathryn Bigelow, the film takes place in the very near
future on the eve ofhe next millennium. The new "drug" on
the street is a virtual reality-inspired contraption that plugs
into the cerebral cortex of the human brain and records "real
life Not only can you record life as you see, feel, taste, touch
and smell it but you can also live the lives of others. If you're
a man and you want to experience childbirth, all you have to
do is fork out the cash and press play.
Ralph Fiennes plays Lenny Nero, a former cop turned

for sale, I was finally seated at a table.
It was dinnertime and I was ea-
ger to gorge on fresh seafood and idle
conversation. I waited an additional
10 minutes for the waiter to ask for
our drink requests. Finally, it was 8
p.m. and I was famished and a little
perturbed about the service. I wanted
a plate of Seafood Mornay. Priced at
$10, it's a little expensive, but I was
starved and finally decided on my
choice for dinner.
I ordered. "Sorry fellaz, the cook
just got slammed and he'll get mad if
I take back more food orders the
waiter stated. Awestruck, I stared
blankly at the waiter, thinking to my-
self about the close correlation of the
two nouns food and cook. The cook
will get mad if he has to cook some
more food? I thought cooking food
was his job.
"That's okay I told the waiter,
"we're not in that much of a hurry.
We can wait"
"He's not really cooking dinners
anymore the waiter returned.
"Can I order an appetizer?" I
asked.
The waiter, appearing to be some-
what perturbed about a young man,
over 21, actually wanting to eat sea-
food in a seafood restaurant stated,
"Look, do y'all want anything to
drink?"
This was the first time I've ever
argued with a waiter about ordering
food before, so I was somewhat flus-
tered.
I left the Underwater hungry and
a little upset with the service, but I
refused to let one person's attitude

Klark Kent
Kollected Works
Jay Myers
Staff Writer
Okay Police fans, get ready for
the find of the century! Klark Kent
is the pseudonym for Police drum-
mer, Stewart Copeland. Kollected
Works brings together all of the
singles he released as Klark Kent
back in 1978, as well as some nug-
gets that were recorded back then
but never released. Listening to this
record, it is easy to see how much
influence Copeland had on the
original punkreggaenew wave
sound of the Police.
For those of you who don't
know, Copeland, not Sting, was the
original creative force behind the
Police. Copeland wrote the band's
first two hit singles, "Fallout" and
"Nothing Achieving which got the
Police their major label contract
and started them on the road to
fame. The work he did as Klark
Kent is such a natural precursor to
the sound Copeland had in mind
for the Police that it deserves to
be ranked with their best work.
In fact, Kollected Works
sounds so much like the early
Outlandos D Amour Regatta de
Blanc Police that I'm surprised
A&M didn't give the album more
of a push in the press. Especially
considering the fact that they have
released a multi-disc retrospective
of the band and recently digitally
remastered their entire catalog.
"Don't Care a catchy, jumpy
song, much like the Police's "On
Any Other Day" (also written by
Copeland), was the first Klark Kent
single to make the UK charts. It ac-
tually was popular enough to gar-
ner a spot for Copeland on Britain's
Top of the Pops TV show, their ver-
sion of American Bandstand, where
he appeared with the rest of the
Police lineup, all in masks to main-
tain the anonymity of Klark Kent.
There is speculation about
whether Sting and Andy Summers
played with Copeland on his Klark
Kent releases, too. With tracks like
"Thrills "Excesses "My Old
School" and "Ritch in a Ditch
which sound like Police outtakes,
it's easy to see why. However, it is
definitely Copeland singing on
Kollected Works, and it's not be
yond his ability to be able to craft
the rest of it, either.
Of course, Copeland's lasting
strength has been his ability to
craft unique, engrossing instrumen-
tal music, which has provided him
with his successful post-Police ca-
reer creating scores for television
and film. "Grandelinquent" sounds
like the missing intro to Regatta de
Blanc's "Walking on the Moon
"Theme for a Kinetic Ritual" makes
the most of an electric kazoo, and
"Office Talk" takes a meandering
journey through the babbling
brook sounds of break-room chat-
ter, using incidental noise for an
unusual layering effect over which
Copeland places drums, guitar, and
keyboards. This is genius at work.
Later, the creative direction of
the Police was taken over by Sting,
and this led to a confrontation be-
tween he and Copeland. On their
last and best-selling album,
Synchronicity. the only track that
Copeland had any creative input on

slowly build up until the issue at hand is
much larger than any one individual.
Unfortunately, Bigelow and company
resort to such standard fare as car chases
and forced plot twists that should include
captions reading, "This will figure into
the conclusion
While there are several nicely
handled scenes (the opening sequence
is quite exhilarating), Bigelow lacks the
edgy flare she displayed in her vampire
flick Near Dark. A painful flashback se-
quence and repeated slow motion shots
help distort the pacing of the film, which
is longer than it needs to be. If Bigelow
spent less time visually masturbating with
her dark vision of the future and more
time focusing on the story at hand, then
perhaps the film's length would not have
mattered at all.
Still, Strange Days does have its
finer points. Ralph Fiennes once again
stands out in the crowd. Not only can
this man act but he is possibry one of
the most photogenic actors working in
Hollywood today. Backing up Piennes is
Angela Bassett As Lenny's close friend
Macey, Bassett is a thrill as she kicks
bad guy ass in the streets and scolds
Lenny for the way he lives his life. She is
the mother, lover, and woman warrior
all rolled into one.
Unfortunately, these two wonderful
actors aren't enough to make this movie
all that it should be. There are a few sur-
prises by the end, but they're not enough
to make me really care. The "surprise"
villain in the end is typical of a thriller,
and the film's climatic moments just lack
the necessary intensity. By the end, I was
only thrilled when I finally saw the clos-
ing credits.
There are marry problems with be-
ing a critic but a major one is the dan-
ger of expecting too much. I went into
Strange Days seeking something differ-
ent; I wanted squid instead of chicken,
but was only served chicken. While
chicken is a tasty meal, I can find it at
any fast food joint Squid, however, is a
rare delicacy. On a scale of one to 10,
Strange Days rates a mediocre six.

fun.
Anyone who has been downtown
on Halloween knows that they will see
their fair share of men dressed as
women. So here's a twist on that very
old idea: women dressed as men. Hide
your hair under a hat, wear your
boyfriend's suit and have a ball! For all
you couples out there, switch roles for
the evening. This can be fun not on
for you, but for your friends and family
as well.
Everyone wants to dress like their
favorite movie characters for Halloween.
But that's hardly original. So another
suggestion would be to go as your fa-
vorite commercial characters! Who ever
thinks to dress up as someone from the
Shower to Shower commercial? What
college student doesn't own at least one
towel? Or go as a Mentos endorser and
break all the common rules of society
with breath mints. Another great sug

ruin a review for this new place. I
decided to give the Underwater Cafe
a second chance.
I returned to the scene of the
crime exactly one week later. Since
there were only five or six customers
in the whole place, I thought service
would be better this time.
Seated once again in the same
booth as the previous encounter, 1
reluctantly looked for my waiter, hop-
ing it would not be the same guy. Ah,
a pleasant young lady came to the
table to take my order. Being some-
what indecisive, I ordered crab claws
"Sorry, no crab claws tonight"
I should've known better. What
was 1 thinking? Crab claws are on the
menu. I should've known they don't
serve them. Perhaps the Underwater
needs a disclaimer on their menu.
"Do you have any shrimp to-
night?" I asked.
"Sure she answered.
"Fine, I'll have peel and eat
shrimp I said.
Served along with fresh cocktail
sauce, the shrimp was incredibly tasty.
It only took a few minutes to get my
order and I devoured the dish in about
five or 10 minutes. This order of
shrimp was the best I have eaten
south of my home in coastal Virginia.
The atmosphere in the Underwa-
ter Cafe and Raw Bar is, as might be
expected, very nautical. A huge
fishtank sits behind the bar and fish
net is strung about the interior of the
establishment. It's different; 1 like the
atmosphere, 1 like to go there for a
few drinks in the evening. But this is
a new seafood restaurant and they
don't seem to serve very much sea-
food. Hopefully they will get the kinks
worked out soon.
Until then, the Underwater has
plenty of liquid refreshment, but the
sea-going creatures they have listed
on their menu as entrees are virtu-
ally extinct.

Team wins one,

Staff Writer
The Pirate's men's soccer team
visited Charleston .Southern on Oct.
11. The Pirates played a good game,
winning 2-0 to chalk up their second
shutout win of the year. Both goals
were scored by senior Dusty Belk.
"It wasn't an easy victory said
Coach Will Wiberg. Wiberg started
two new players during the game,
freshman Chris Burger from Charlotte
and sophomore Jim Carey from Penn-
sylvania.
Two minutes into the game Belk
scored his first goal. The goal was a
definite team effort wth senior Marc
Mullin sending the ball to Jim Carey,
who then beat a CS defender to con-
nect with Belk for the goal. The first
half ended with ECU leading 1-0.
In the second half, sophomore
Darrec Jones was tripped in the box,
giving the Pirates a penalty kick. Belk
took the kick and put the ball into
the left side of the net to make the
score 2-0. ECU out-shot CS 21-6 for
the game. Pirate goalie Jay Davis
wasn't contested at any time through-
out the game.
Saturday afternoon the Pirates
were once again on the road to take
on the Keydets of the Virginia Mili-
tary Institute. The Pirates played a
strong game, and the match was tied
1-1 until the last 32 seconds of the
game when a throw-in was headed by
a VMI player and then bounced off
another player into the goal.
The game belonged to the de-
fense of both teams. The score was 0-
0 with neither defense giving the op-
posing offense the chance to score
until late in the first half, when VIM
was able to break the defense and put
the ball in for the point
In the second half, the team of
Jon Smiley and Bret Altheiser con-
nected to give the Pirates their first
score of the game and Altheiser his
third goal of the year. With only 32
seconds remaining in regulation play,
VMI gained possession of the ball. VMI
threw the ball in, and after bouncing
off one player's head, it ricocheted off
another player into the goal.
"It was really a game where I
thought we were the better team
said Wiberg. "You have to play 90
minutes. You can't play 89 minutes
and 30 seconds
The men's soccer team only had
five of their 21 games scheduled at
home this season. They will be taking
on Methodist at the ECU soccer com-
plex on Thursday, Oct 19 in their last
home game of the season. Came time
is set for 4 p.m.

SID- East Carolina might sense
that it has been in this position be-
fore, as it prepares to face the Temple
Owls on Homecoming Saturday at
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
After starting the 1994 season
with a 3-3 record, the Pirates traveled
to Tulsa to face the Golden Hurricanes
on their Homecoming Day. ECU's 28-
21 victory seemed to set the Pirate's
ship toward last year's Liberty Bowl
berth as ECU went 4-1 the second half
of the season. ECU Head Coach Steve
Logan sees a lot of similarities in this
week's matchup with Temple and that
game last October in Oklahoma.
"Last year we were 3-3 and we
went to Tulsa and won a football game
and it kind of got us going in the right
direction for the second half of the
season Logan said at his weekly ad-
dress to the media. "1 think that this
football game can do that same kind
of thing
In order for ECU to get off on
the right foot for the second half of
the season, the Pirates will need to
stop a Temple squad which is coming
off its first ever Big East Conference
victory with an emotional 29-27 win
over Pittsburgh last week. The win
snapped multiple losing streaks in-
cluding a27 Big East games, 16 home
games, and 13 games overall.
"The Temple football team was
really kind of a timebomb waiting to
go off on somebody said Logan.
"Their coaching staff did a real nice
job of nursing them through some
frustrations
The Owls are led on offense by
junior All-Big East quarterback Henry
Burris who has passed for 1,102 yards
and five TDs in 1995. "He's a little
over six feet tall, very agile, athletic,
has got a good arm, and is hard to
sack said Logan. "He's played as a
freshman and sophomore, now he's a
junior and you can see him just de-
veloping right along
On the flip side of the ball, the
Temple linebacking core is led by All-
Amencan candidate Lance Johnstone.
"their linebackers are the strength of
what they're doing right now said
Logan. "Johnstone is a legitimate pro
gut, he's going to be an outside line-
backer in the NFL
As for the Pirates, they are com-
ing off an open week which was used
to work on the running attack. "If we
can remedy our running game which
we spent all of last week attempting
to do, then I think that we've got a
chance to improve and get better as
the season goes along said Logan.
The extra week off also gave the
Pirates a chance to fight off some
nagging injuries. Noseguard Travis
Darden, tackle Charles Boothe, and
tackle Ron Suddith have all recovered
from leg injuries while fullback Jerris
McPhail is questionable with an arm
injury.

Dear ECU Students:
Homecoming is a special time for students and returning alumni. I hope each of
you are participating in the homecoming festivities this week. The student
homecoming committee has worked diligently to provide a great week of activities
for you.
This Saturday your Pirates will host Temple in the annual homecoming football
game. It is important that YOU are in your seats at 1:40 pin, on your feet for the
team entrance, get loud for every third down by the opposing team, and cheer for
your fellow students on the football team until die final buzzer.
The spirited atmosphere in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium against Central Micliigan and
West Virginia was outstanding. It is no coincidence that your Pirates won both of
these football games. ECU students filling the student section every game must
become automaticA tradition of pride, if you will.
Your Pirates are 2-0 against Big East conference opponents this fall. This Saturday,
lets make it 3-0 and go undefeated against the Big East in the regular season.
If the Pirates are to earn another Liberty Bowl invitation, it will take YOU filling
up the seats this Saturday, and at the next two home games, to give your team the
best opportunity to make this happen!
GET IN THE STANDS EARLY, BE PROUD, and GET LOUD!
Sincerely,

The ECU Adventure Program
Do exhilarating activities like wind
surfing, kayaking, backpacking, climb-
ing, hiking, hang gliding, skiing and
snorkeling catch your eye? If so, you
might want to see what the Department
of Recreational Services Adventure Pro-
gram has to offer. This program is made
up of four components that work to
provide an all-around thrilling adventure
experience for members of the ECU stu-
dent, faculty, staff and community. The
adventure trips, climbing tower, ropes
course and Recreational Outdoor Cen-
ter (also known as the ROC) are the
four elements that shape this exciting
program.
The Adventure Program's first com
ponent is the adventure trips. Whether
you're up for some kayaking, backpack-
ing, climbing or snow skiing, one of
these journeys is sure to "quench your
thirst" for adventure. Upcoming trips
include a Kayak Roll Clinic, Intro, to
River Rescue, Sea Kayaking Day Trip
and the Fall Break trip at Pisgah Na-
tional Forest located near the popular
Smoky Mountains in western N.C.
Some "early birds" have already found
out about the popular Fall Break trip,
because this one is already full. Luckily
there are still some spots left open on
the snowy Holiday Ski Vacation, set for
Dec. 15-20. This will be the perfect time
to hit the slopes for some thrilling after
exam relief while still having time to go
home and experience the holidays with
your family.

Sports Report
The ECU men's and women's cross country teams traveled to Char-
lotte Oct 14, to partake in the North Carolina Championships. Despite
running well, the men's team finished ninth, while the women's team
finished with a fifth place overall finish.
The first Pirate runner to
cross the line for the men's
team was Jaime Mance. Martce
had an overall time of 26:48,
which qualified him for 35th
place. Mike Marini, who fin-
ished 56th overall and was the
second runner for the ECU
team to cross the finish line,
ended with a time of 27:28.
"I feel I ran well and ran
tough said Marini. "Our
team is starting to come to-
gether and run welt"

short against Wilmington
Staff Heporta
The Lady Pirates soccer team traveled to Wilmington on Oct 12 to
face the UNC-W Lady Seahawks, in CAA action. UNC-W scored once in the
first half and twice in the second half to win the game 3-0 over the Pirates.

ing up 13 saves for the game.
The UNC-W scoring team of Shearon and Walker was responsible for
all three of the goals scored by the Seahawks. Their fist goal came 20 min-

the ECU Soccer Complex. The game time is set for 3:30 p.m.
Graf sponsor pulls out
of lucrative contract
BERLIN (AP) - One of Steffi
Graf's main sponsors, the General
Motors subsidiary Opel, canceled a
lucrative contract yesterday because
of the scandal that has put her father
in jail on suspicion of tax evasion.
It was the first such setback since
mid-summer when tax authorities
began investigating the 26-year-old
Graf, who as one of Germany's best-
known figures, is avidly sought for
endorsements and sponsorships.
Opel said it still had full confi-
dence in Grafs personal integrity, but
it would cancel at the end of this year
a $1.2 million a year contract for the
world's top woman tennis player.
Graf, who is playing this week in
Britain in the Brighton tournament,
has been questioned by prosecutors
but does not face immediate arrest.
prosecutors said last week.
She is a suspect and could even-
tually be brought to trial. Her father,
Peter Graf, has been under arrest since
August accused of failing to report
some $35.3 million of her income.
Her tax adviser, Joachim Eckardt
also is in custody.
Opel's supervisory board mem-
ber, Hans Wilhelm Gaeb, had been one
of Grafs main defenders as the tax
scandal broke, but in recent weeks it
was evident that he was unhappy at
disclosures of how her financial affairs
had been managed by her father and
others.
Opel spokesman Karl Mauer said
the company had told Graf that its
deal with her would be endangered if

there were no changes in her 'man-
agement environment
A statement issued by Opel head-
quarters in Ruesselsheim, Germany,
did not refer directly to the tax issue
but said Opel had decided "in the
current situation" not to extend the
contract it had with Graf since 1985
when she was an emerging teen-age
star.
Graf has said she left manage-
ment of her finances to her father, and
reportedly had no knowledge of where
her fortune - estimated at S70 mil-
lion - was invested.
Despite the tax scandal and a
back problem, Graf has had a great
year of competition, winning three
major tournaments: the French Open,
Wimbledon and the U.S. Open - since
the tax authorities began probing her
affairs.
She starts play Wednesday at
Brighton, her first competitive tennis
since beating Monica Seles in the U.S.
Open final five weeks ago.
Der Spiegel news magazine re-
ports in this week's issue that tax in-
vestigators questioned Graf for the
second time last Friday, focusing on
whether she signed her tax returns.
There have been media reports
that an autograph machine was used
to sign the returns. If true, that could
add falsification of a signature to
criminal charges that may be filed.
Spiegel reported that Grafs tax
return for 1993 reported $1.9 million
in income but left out income from
three sponsorship deals worth a total
of S3.9 million.
