Around the State
(AP) - Scott Rhoney is try-
ing to solve an environmental mys-
tery: How is mercury getting into
some lakes and rivers in southeast-
ern North Carolina?
Rhoney and other researchers
are looking to the sky for the an-
swer. They think the mercury may
be entering the atmosphere from
a nickel-smelting plant in Cuba or
a gold-mining operation in Brazil,
then falling to the earth in rain.
Or the culprit might be a North
Carolina plant
(AP) - State officials planned
to eat fish before rolling cameras
Wednesday to restore consumer
confidence in North Carolina's sea-
food industry.
The point of the noon dem-
onstration at Union Point Park was
to assure consumers that "our sea-
food is wholesome and safe to eat
said Bruce Freeman, director of
the Marine Fisheries Division of
the Department of Environment,
Health and Natural Rt sources.
Around the Country
(AP) - The ex-wife of a man
accused of torching a high school
embroiled in racial turmoil testi-
fied Wednesday mat she only ad-
mitted knowing something about
the arson after investigators
threatened her with prosecution.
Janice Johnson, who was still
married to Christopher Johnson at
the time, testified Tuesday that she
saw a dirt-filled paper bag "soaked
with charcoal lighter fluid" and
with matches stuck in it in her
kitchen the night before Randolph
County High School in Wedowee,
Ala. burned down.
(AP) - A 9-year-old who
struck his teacher in the chest over
a class assignment he didn't like
has been handed over to juvenile
The boy, who was not identi-
fied, was detained Tuesday by ju-
venile authorities after the St.
Louis medical examiner ruled that
the death of Nedra Morris, a sub-
stitute teacher, was a homicide.
Homicide detectives have rec-
ommended that the boy be
charged with involuntary man-
slaughter under the juvenile code.
The court will decide later this
week what to do with the boy.
Around the World
(AP) - A bomb exploded in a
car parked near the entrance to a
Moscow airport, killing a police
officer inside the vehicle and in-
juring three other occupants, the
Interior Ministry said Wednesday.
It was not immediately known
who planted the bomb at Vnukovo
Airport on Tuesday or why, offi-
cials said. The car was parked 30
yards from the entrance to the air-
port, which mostly serves domes-
tic flights and flights to other
former Soviet republics.
(AP) - Helicopters prowled
the skies and dogs sniffed through
fields near the tense Korean bor-
der Wednesday, looking for a
North Korean agent who may have
slipped into the south.

With the completion of the
recreational center at least a semes-
ter behind, some students have
questioned who will pay for this
One major concern for SGA
President Ian Eastman and his
Executive Assistant Chris Arline is
what will happen to the money col-
lected from fall student fees, which
was designated to be used to open
the rec center.
"The rec center will need a cer-
tain budget to operate per year
said Richard Brown, vice chancel-
lor for business affairs. "The money
($20 per student) represented the
operating budget assuming the rec
center would open in January
The $20 fee tacked on to stu-
dent fees was actually reduced from
a proposed $35 fee, according to
Vice Chancellor for Student Life Al
Matthews. After filtering through the
board of trustees. SGA and the N.C.
Board of Governors, the fee increase
was reduced to $20. This increase was
divided in half for each semester.
"We were comfortable with the
$20 because the money coming in was
only dealing with the center opening
in late spring Matthews said.
The first installment of the in-
crease was collected with fall tuition
and designated to be used for start
up costs of the rec center, but now
the money is sitting in a reserve fund
account until it is determined how it
will be spent
Matthews said between $350-
500,000 is needed to purchase move-
able equipment including weight ma-
chines, free weights and nets. An ad-
ditional $75,000 is needed to purchase
a climbing tower. Matthews said these
expenses are necessary regardless of
the opening time.
"The problem we're running into
is that they student life said they
would have the place operational
sometime in January, and that's why
they said they needed the fee increase
for the fall semester Eastman said.
Eastman and Arline, who have
formed a committee to manage financ-
ing the facilities, are looking for al-
ternatives for the fees students paid
at the beginning of the fall semester.
Their suggestions included refunding
$10 to seniors graduating in the
spring, allocating $10 to the future
site of the intramural complex (be-
hind Allied Health), asking seniors
to donate their $10 to the intra-

Staff Writer
The main focus in the Student
Government Association (SGA)
meeting in Mendenhall on Monday,
Oct 16 was finances.
Ian Eastman, SGA president,
presented the following proposals
for next year, in an attempt to keep
student fees as low as possible: $40
for student recreational fees, $11 for
athletic fees and $5 for technology
"The fees were successfully low-
ered even further than expected, $30
rather than $40, this past year
Eastman said.
A proposal must be presented
before Thanksgiving Break and will
be finalized in a Board of Trustees
meeting on Dec 8.
A question touched on the topic
of waiving or refunding the recre-
ational center fees for graduating stu-
dents, since the center will not be fin-
ished by their graduation date.
"The fees should be refunded
Eastman said.
Efforts are under way to allevi-
ate the recreation center's cost to
graduates. In conclusion, the as-
sembly agreed a future meeting
would be open to the public con-
cerning the recreational center

reational services, is in charge of a

It is time once again for Homecom-
ing at ECU and with an increase in the
number of floats, banners, bands and
candidates, this year's Homecoming has
started off with an increase in spirit
"Homecoming is a very important
pier: to the university said Assistant
Director of Student Activities J. Marshall.
"It's an intense project"
Activities are scheduled throughout
the week and have already begun with a
banner judging held on Wednesday.
One event on the agenda that will
not be held, the major concert scheduled
for Thursday at Minges, was not possible
for Homecoming this year.
"We made offers on five different
bands including Hootie and the Blow-
fish but because of routing the date was
not a good time for the bands said
Marshall. "They wouldn't accept the
money we offered - it wasn't from a lack
of trying"
Another way to get organizations
involved in Homecoming activities is
HouseHall decorations. Registered uni-
versity organizations, residence halls and
departments can apply to take place in a
contest in order to win cash prizes. The
organization displaying the most creativ-
ity and spirit wins the prize and will be
announced at the game against the
Temple Owls at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
A highlight of Homecoming activi-
ties is the Piratefest held on the mall.
This is a large scale pep rally which in-
volves many activities such as announce-
ment of the Homecoming court unlock-
ing of the Pirate's Chest for prizes, per-

together to build school sptnt" satd
Amber Hoffman, a member on the Stu-
dent Homecoming Committee. "The par-
ticipation, in general, has increased this
year, and that's really good. The commit-
tee has worked reairy hard
Events scheduled for Saturday be-
fore the game include a Step Show to be
held at Minges as well as the Homecom-
ing Parade which begins at 9:45 a.m.
Extra incentive for better participa-
tion involving floats has been given in
the form of a $750 for the winning float
"We were embarrassed by the level
of the quality of the floats last year
Marshall said. "We had four or five
groups that went all out From there it
went downhill drastically
Some standards have been changed
to encourage organizations to develop
better floats for this year's parade. One
of the changes involves a mandatory two-
thirds of the vehicle must be covered.

Greenville escort services busted again
Owners charged
with conspiring to
commit prostitution
Marguerite Benjamin
Senior Writer
Earlier this month an investiga-
tion of area escort services resulted
in the arrest of three employees from
Diamond, Cherry's and Crystal's es-
cort services. At the time, no owners
could be charged, but that changed
last weekend.
According to Investigations Of-
ficer Tony Dennison, the investigation
continued after the first arrests were
made, and on Friday night police re-
ceived the proof they needed in order
to charge the owner of Diamond Es-
corts, Jackie Ray Graves, and his
fiance Heather Moore with conspiracy
to commit prostitution.
"Actually the owners were
charged on two counts Dennison
said, stating that the second charge
was aiding and abetting prostitution.
"The way it works is like this: phone
lines for people to call in and request
escorts are in the owner's house, the
owner supplies each girl with a pager
so she can be reached at any time.
"When the owners get a call, they
page the girl and tell her where to
meet the client The girl then meets
the client and calls back to the ser-
vice to tell the owner how long the
session will be
Dennison said the charges of con-
spiracy were founded on the fact that
the owner takes the responsibility for
calling and transporting the girls, and
that charging the girls with prostitu-
tion was well founded.
"The act is still considered escort-
ing until the girls get down to undress-
ing Dennison said. "When clients go
and the girl gets naked and asks the
client if he has condoms - one girl
even had a tube of KY Jelty - at that
point, you don't have to go any fur-
The owners of Diamond Escorts
were arrested and posted $2,000
bonds while the escorts themselves
posted $500 bonds after being
charged with attempting to sell sexual
favors to undercover police officers.
The court date is set for Nov. 28.
"At this point, the escort service
is still not closed Dennison said.
"Graves says he's not doing anything
wrong and he plans to continue what
he's doing. He'll probably keep doing
it even if he is convicted. He seems to
think he's providing the community
with a valuable service
Graves told a reporter in an ar-
ticle for The Daily Reflector that his
service was doing a lot of good for
Greenville by providing prom dates for
high school boys and escorts who
pose as dates for gay businessmen.
Dennison said after a half-hour
session which costs $100, the escort
gets to keep $60 and the owner gets
the rest
"I guess that's what the attrac-
tion is for these jobs Dennison said.
"I mean 100 bucks for a half-hour is
outrageous, but people do it all the
time. I just can't see giving up hard-
earned money like that
As far as there being any legiti-
mate escort services operating in
Greenville, Dennison expressed doubt
"I really don't think so he said,
" because we have arrested girls from
almost every one of the services. They
know what the job consists of before
they take it I am convinced of that,
because they know other girls who
work there, and they find out that
they are expected to sleep with the
No ECU students were involved
with the arrests made this weekend.
According to Dennison, die investiga-
tion is far from over. He said the next
step is to bust girls when they are with
regular clients so that the clients can
be arrested too.
"There will definitely be more
arrests made Dennison added.

Law and order are on ECU's
agenda for Monday night.
Henry J. Abraham, a James Hart
Professor of Government at the Uni-
versity of Virginia, will present "Re-
flections on appointments to the Su-
preme Court of the U.S in the
Jenkins Art building at 7 p.m. Oct. 23.
The lecture is sponsored by the ECU
College of Arts and Sciences in honor
of Tinsley E. Yarbrough. the 1995 re-
cipient of the College's Distinguished
Professor Award. Yarbrough is a po-
litical science professor who currently
serves as interim vice chancellor of
academic affairs.
"He (Abraham) is a great author-
ity in the same field as Dr. Yarbrough
said David Conradt, chair of ECU's
political science department. "He has
lectured widely all over the world
Abraham is a prominent special-
ist in the study of judicial process and
has written several books and articles
on the subject.
"He's been sort of a mentor, as
well as a good friend of mine for many
years Yarbrough said, i did teach
with him as a visiting professor at the
University of Virginia back in the late
Yarbrough is also considered an
authority on the influence of federal
courts and justices on American gov-
ernment and politics.
"Often there is discussion as to
whether non-lawyers should be ap-
pointed to the Supreme Court Nu-
merous prominent law professors have
suggested Abraham would make an
excellent Supreme Court justice
Yarbrough said.
Keats Sparrow, dean of the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences is looking
forward to the event.
"Dr. Abraham is so well re-
spected, there will be a lot of people
from the community who will come

Matthews and Brown are looking
into the solutions proposed, but
Matthews said currently, he is look-
ing for a more accurate account of
the budget.
"We're going to look"very seri-
ously at any recommendation that
comes from student government
Matthews said.
Matthews said it is most likely
that students who graduate in Decem-
ber will never see their $10. He also
added that students must pay now for
projects others will benefit from in the
future, such as Mendenhall Student
Eastman and Arline believe it is
only fair to look at keeping fees as
low as possible.
"It's a constant concern
Eastman said. He said the ideas will
be presented to the finance facilities
committee for formal recommenda-
tions at the SGA meeting next week.
The board of trustees will vote
on these potential solutions at their
Dec. 8 meeting, at which time they
will also determine the '9697 school-
year fee increases.
Eastman said after he receives
the proposed fee increases, the SGA
will hold an open forum for debate
(tentatively before Thanksgiving
"Our main objective is to look out
for the students' concerns and mini-
mize financial burdens involved

Our View
How sweet it is. After months of hard work by our ath-
letic department, a deal has been reached to resume the ECU
vs. N.C. State football series. It is a long-awaited rivalry of
what should be some exciting games to come.
Beginning next year, the Pirates will battle it out with the
Wolfpack and we at the TEC couldn't be happier. The last
time these two schools fought it out on the field was in 1992
at the Peach Bowl. It was ECU's Cinderella season that ended
with a record of 11-1, a victory over State in the Peach Bowl
and a national ranking of ninth in the country. During the
bowl game, the Pirates rallied back to take the game by a 37-
34 decision. That would be the last time the two teams would
line up across from one another on the field for another four
ECU does not have an in-state rival like our counterparts
around the state. We hope the Pirate vs. Wolfpack match-up
will become a long standing tradition thatfjvill be as climatic
as the Wolfpack vs. Tarheel match-up has come to be.
Not only will the football program benefit, but so will the
fans. Since the '92 season both Pirate and Wolfpack fans have
been awaiting another clash between these two programs.
The regular series was terminated because of an incident
that happened in Raleigh one football Saturday afternoon.
The series, which previously had been played from 1970-1987,
was brought to a halt during the '87 season after an ECU
victory. ECU won the game 32-14, and ECU fans proceeded
onto the field where they were later joined by Wolfpack fans.
Students from both schools were crammed onto the field,
and eventually trouble broke loose. That incident helped con-
tribute to the ending of the series.
When ECU and State met during the Peach Bowl, the
fans were ecstatic but no major problems arose like those
compared to the incident in '87.
We think it is safe to assume that the fans and players will
be ready to face N.C. State, and will want to have a long play-
ing tradition with the Wolfpack.

Taking back freedom

A handshaking matter
An old saying states that you can
tell a lot about a person by their hand-
shake. As far as this writer is con-
cerned that notion is gospel. There
are few ways to make a worst impres-
sion than with a clammy handshake.
Webster's Dictionary defines the
handshake as "a gripping and shak-
ing of each other's hand, as to sym-
bolize greeting, congratulation, agree-
ment or farewell Taking this defini-
tion into consideration it's hard to see
how people can take something so
significant lightly.
Historically the handshake dates
back to the time of the ancient Greeks
where it assumed all of the above
duties and was utilized as the bond-
ing motion of marital vows as well.
In politics it has always been the
first thing to follow the pen when
agreeing on treaties. How often does
one see a well renowned world leader
pat another on the back as a show of
appreciation of a job well done with-
out a handshake preceding it
As the application of the motion
can be shown as a favorable the with-
holding of the act can be just as sym-
John Foster Dulles exercised this
right when he chose not to shake the
hand of Chinese Foreign Minister
Chao en Lai at the conclusion of the
Geneva Conference as a silent protest
to his anticipation that the Chinese
would not uphold the agreement.

About 30 years later we now see just
how right he was by the Chinese Gov-
ernments support of the North Viet-
namese and the vast human rights
abuses during the Vietnam Conflict
Dulles was taught well. The man
at his post of Secretary of State be-
fore him was Dean Acheson. He chose
not to shake hands with the most
notorious witch hunter of the 20th
century, Joseph McCarthy.
Secret and selective social groups
have always used the handshake (in
different modifications) as a right of
passage. American Indians even used
blood to strengthen the symbolism
even further.
All too often I am introduced to
a person for the first time and more
importantly than the name, I remem-
ber the handshake. Actions peak
louder than words (or names in this
case.) How can a persons words be
taken seriously if even something as
simple as a firm handshake can't be
performed correctly?
A handshake is a personal hall-
mark. It is the act that shows that you
are in agreement with the actions or
beliefs of another.
This is to state that if a person
was at Fidel Castro's inauguration and
you shook hands with him immedi-
ately preceding his oath then you
would be in agreement and okay with
the fact that he was in charge. His
views on human rights abuses are fine
and dandy as well.
Of course all binding precedent
deals are off if you knew that your
very existence on Earth would be
short lived if you didn't But that is
beside the point.
All extreme circumstances aside
the best way to make a bad first im-
pression (aside from showing up at a
vegetarian rally with enough veal cut-
let sandwiches for everyone and their
in-laws,) is by giving a poor, clammy,
backbone deprived, quiche eating, self-
esteem lacking handshake.
A handshake is the mortar a per-
son uses to make a bond. Who's go-
ing to take an agreement or a meet-
ing with a person seriously if their
mortar can't hold a cotton ball to fly-
Aah Freedom! You're finally out
of the dorms. Your roommate and
yourself have your entire college fu-
ture planned out The two of you have
just signed a lease for your new apart-
ment and all looks good. You're even
on the ECU bus route.
(Time advance two days) You're
all moved in now! Everything is in
place, the stereo is set up just right,
all the pictures are perfectly hung and
centered on the walls. The food has
all been purchased. It's all been neatly
unpacked and placed in the cabinets.
Your food in these two and your room-
mates in the other two.
Nothing can ruin this great feel-
ing that you have about your new
found freedom. Except, that third
roommate. You know what I mean.
That person who somehow wormed
their way into your apartment calling
themselves your roommate's boy-
friend or girlfriend.
Soon, that nice, neat, fully-
stocked cabinet of yours begins to
look like it was raided by a camp of
refugee college students after having
been downtown and seem to have
those late night munchies. Your
mouth begins to salivate as you stare
at the lone crumb that remains in you
precious cabinet
You gulp down that sole crumb
in hopes that is may perhaps appease
that growing anger inside yourself.

semi-happy tcne. "I will not tolerate

kitchen as a hawk swoops towards its

roommate and tell them how you feel.
All your built up frustration is
just about verbalized when a single,
lone thought breaks through your
impenetrable wall around your heart
That single thought is how can you
possibly tell your roommate how you

So, you hold back your thoughts,
you bury your feelings and decide to
give them, one last chance. Perhaps
it's just you. You have probably been
under a great amount of stress and
you are probably acting too judgmen-
A few days go by and all has
seemed to have healed itself. You de-
cide to go to the laundromat and
wash your clothes which have been
piling up for longer than the laws of
physics can support While separat-
ing your white's from the dark's you
start to find shirt, shorts and even
underwear that is not yours.
THAT'S IT! You pioclaim at the
top of your lungs. Without washing
your clothes, you rush back to your
perfect apartment and confront your
roommate. All the anger and frustra-
tion finally is verbalized in a 15
minute sermon to your roommate
who is horrified by this ghastly dis-
play from you.
Your roommate and you have
the battle royal and in the end, who
is the winner? You and your room-
mate decide this situation is not

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor:
Diversity - YES! Nubian - NO! I
take issue for with the use of Nubian
in a pageant for women of color. I too
am a woman of color and consider
Nubian, as an adjective, to be a de-
nial of one's true heritage. It is too
often used as a blanket term and is
incorrect In fact, to be Nubian is to
be a member of one of the Negroid
tribes that formed a powerful empire
between Egypt the northern Sudan,
and Ethiopia from the sixth to the
14th centuries.
To call the event a Nubian pag-
eant is almost absurd. Why not call it
the Masai pageant or event he Aztec
pageant since some of the contestants
are Hispanic? "Nubian Queen" is too
exclusive a title for a pageant geared
toward all women of color.
Most of the Africans who were
brought to the Americas as slaves
came from Sub-Saharan Africa, not
Egypt, the Sudan nor Ethiopia. I
wholeheartedly encourage all African-
Americans to explore and recognize
the richness and diversity of the Sub-
Saharan African Cultures of their an-

Here we
Before I begin, I wanted to say that
within that last few weeks, "race" has
been hot topic in the media and every-
day conversatioa We've been bombarded
with OJ. Simpson and the aftermath of
his trialtelevision program. Of late we've
also been hearing a great deal about the
Million Man March. There has been a lot
of conflict brewing, and I've been pa-
tiently waiting for someone to say some-
thing stupid, giving me the chance to
get a whole lot of things off mv chest
(well, a few anyway). Therefore, I would
like to thank the person who wrote the
letter to the editor in the Oct 12 TEC
for opening up this can of worms.
Yes discrimination in this country
has gone too far! I agree wholeheartedly,
but I can assure you that my reasons for
feeling this way are probably very differ-
ent from his. Let me set something
straight though: It didn 1 all begui with
Affirmative Action! If discrimination had
never been practiced by the people who
run this country, there wouldn't have
been any need for Affirmative Action.
Maybe I learned United States history
somewhat differently from you, but the
previous statement should be obvious to
anyone who thinks they know a little
U.S. history.
Since some people obviously don't
know what Affirmative Action is, I guess
I'll have to elaborate for them and oth-
ers that think like him. Affirmative Ac-
tion is a program that was designed to
give opportunities (not privileges; I'm
not aware of any) to people who tradi-
tionally have been denied those oppor-
tunities. It just so happens mat African-
Americans fall into the category of
people who have been denied many op-
portunities, but despite what he and a
lot of people think we are not the only
beneficiaries. In case you don't under-
Olayta L. Riggsby
Guest Columnist
stand my reference, the program was
designed to help benefit other minori-
ties: Hispanics, Native Americans, and
women of all races and ethnicities just
name a few. Actually, according to a great
deal of researchers, the prime beneficia-
ries have been white women. The time
for the elimination of the program has
not come yet
Yes, ECU does practice this policy,
but did you know that at historically
Black colleges and universities, white
students are able to benefit from Affir-
mative Actions as well because at those
institutions, they are the minorities? (Yes,
whites can receive Minority presence
Grants, and I've met some who took ad-
vantage of those opportunities). A lot of
people who fuss about Affirmative Ac-
tion at the university level haven't taken
that fact into consideration, but I won't
hold that against them We're all capable
of being ignorant sometimes. (For fur-
ther discussion of this topic, look for my
article in the upcoming issue of Expres-
sions. I don't have the time or space to
discuss all of that information in this fo-
have. If you simply tell your room-
mate how you feel when you feel it,
these feelings would not build up
inside yourself and you would not
have to carry them with you like a
burden. Your roommate should be
understanding and should be willing
to listen to you.
As is the custom today, people
do not talk out their differences. To
the average citizen, it is easier to walk
away from the problem and try to
bury it in the backs of their skulls.
The problem never went away, it's
still there. The longer you wait, the
harder it is to confront it.
Why not deal with your prob-
lems as you encounter them. With
roommates, I know you do not wish
to hurt their feelings. However, once
in a while, you need to think of your
own and do what is best for yourself.
If that means creating a rule about
overnight guests then so be it. What
ever it takes for the situation to be
The last resort should be that
the two of you end up moving apart
and not being as close as you were
prior to this disruption. If you were
friends before, why can't you again?
If your roommate and you have
a disagreement about overnight
guests and that third roommate, then
perhaps a neutral part can come in
and listen to both your sides and help
you come up with a viable plan.
Don't give up on each other real
easily. Yes, food will disappear, just
don't always blame it on the third
roommate when it could very well be
you own roommate is constantly raid-
ing you cabinets in search of the Lost
Just remember, you are friends
and you should not allow someone
to come between the two. I am sure
that the third roommate does not
have the intention of splitting the
two of you apart and if you just sit
down and talk about it, I am sure you
can work it out
I'm aSuming that the writer of the
letter is a white American (he never did
say), so I have to say that I am concerned
about his notion that his race is being
trampled upon. By whom? Where? When?
Yes, it's true that the past cannot be
changed and that no one can hold this
generation of white Americans responsible
for past crimes, but I have to ask in all
honesty. What do you think you have re-
ally lost'
And as far as the O J. SimDson trial
being the "icing on the cake I don't know
what that person means. Fferhaps some
people have taken the position that "the
Ijusticel system doesn't work" (not for ev-
eryone), but as for me, I knew that a long
time ago! My father knew that a long time
ago! My grandfather knew that a long time
ago! What'staken everyone else so long to
figure that out'
What if a white man had killed tow
blacks and been found innocent' Well, I
really don't think there would have been
any LA- type riots. If that were the case,
this whole country would have been burned
sown a long time ago. However, since some-
one brought up that point I'll throw out a
name for them: Emmit Till (that's Till not
Smith). If you don't know who that is, make
a trip to Joyner Library and get a small
piece of the education that you, your par-
ents or someone is paying for.
It would be nice if we could all be
treated and seen the way the Rev. Martin
Luther King, Jr. wanted, but as you know,
this is anything but a perfect world we
live in, particularly here in the U.S.
Someone who has lived less than half
his lite here shouldn't have to point that
out That's all what I wanted to say for
the moment I had to keep this writing
short (by my standards), so I haven't
said all that I wanted to say but I
think I've said enough.

The East Carolinian
Hughes brothers sear the
screen with Dead Presidents
Ike Shibley
Senior Writer
Allen and Albert Hughes may not
be the most promising young directors
working in American film today, but they
would certainly have to be included
among them. The Hughes brothers first
seared the silver screen with their blis-
tering portrait of criminals, Menace II
Society. Now, two years later, they have
again scorched the screen with an incen-
diary tale of one man's struggle to sur-
vive in a world in which he seems out of
place, with Dead Presidents.
Dead Presidents begins with fire.
The flames on the screen burn their way
across money being taken out of circula-
tion, the "dead presidents" of the title.
The flames slowly engulf images of
Franklin, Roosevelt and Grant and set
an eerie tone for the urban drama about
to unfold.
The most amazing aspect of Dead
Presidents is that the Hughes brothers
fan the inner flames of rebellion in the
souls of their audience by telling a sur-
prisingly restrained story' with very little
flamboyance. Scenes end with a fade to
black followed by an uncomfortable num-
ber of film frames filled with only black-
ness. The unexpected silence as scenes
change typifies what the brothers have

tried to do with their film: tell an emo-
tional, tragic tale with quiet dignity.
The dignity of the film can be seen
in every frame. Though Dead Presidents
tells the type of story that could be satu-
rated with accusatory shots of various
society members, the kind John Single-
ton has become famous for, the Hughes
brothers instead deliberately refuse to
take sides. They neither praise nor con-
done the actions of their main charac-
ter, Anthony Curtis (Lorenz Tate). In-
stead, they artistically spread out the life
of Anthony on two hours of celluloid and
allow the viewer to make his or her own
By refusing to place blame the
Hughes brothers make a larger social
statement than if they had wagged their
fingers. Society has to closely examine
itself to figure out why a man like An-
thony Curtis, who served his country
during Vietnam, who tried to make an
honest living and who tried to be a good
father and husband, would have to re-
sort to crime to survive in the world.
Dead Presidents unfolds over sev-
eral years, as Anthony matures from a
high school kid running numbers for a
bookie named Kirby (Keith David) to an
adult war veteran working at a butcher
shop and trying to survive. During his
time in Vietnam. .Anthony refuses to write
to his girlfriend Juanita (Rose Jackson),
who has had his child while he is over-
seas. Anthony explains to his friend
Skippy (Chris Tucker) that in order to
survive in the jungle one must forget
about any other life outside the hot, hu-
mid, tropical forests of Vietnam.
Anthony's reasons for not writing
seem sound, but he expects to be able to
rebuild a life with Juanita upon return-
ing. Though Juanita is agreeable to liv-
ing with Anthony, she brings the bag-
gage of having had a boyfriend during
the three years Anthony was overseas.
Anthonycannot cope with this, especially
since the boyfriend still comes around
to give money to Juanita. Domestic feuds
break out that escalate from shouting
matches to a physical assault
This domestic situation exemplifies
the difficult choices faced by the protago-
nist in the film. One can identify with
Anthony's jealousy, yet we know he must
accept that he left for three years with-
out writing. The film refuses to side with

Sometimes I wonder why I even
care about rock and roll anymore.
Like the hippies and punks be-
fore me, I've had my musical under-
ground bought out from under me
by corporate interests and turned
into something
horrible. I've seen
all the life and vi-
tality sucked out of
alternative music
as it was gang-
raped by the
ghosts of Bad Com
pany and the Steve
Miller Band and
reduced to formula

So why the hell should I care

wonder. Then I go see somebody like
Sonic Youth, and it all comes rush-
ing back.
Let me say this now, and get it
out of the way. Sonic Youth may be
the best rock band walking the earth
today. I realize this is a bold state-
ment, and if you disagree, I'm sorry.
Just keep reading, and I hope to tell
you why I think so.
But first, let me take care of the
preliminaries. Sonic Youth played the
Ritz in Raleigh on Friday night along
with opening acts Harry Pussy and
the Makeup.
Despite their delightfully ob-
scene name, Harry Pussy was a bit
of a letdown. A noise punk band in
the vein of Sonic
Youth, they are
neither tight
enough nor
clever enough to
pull this kind of
set off. Plus, their
attempts to an-
tagonize the audi-
ence in good
punk fashion
seemed forced
and uncomfort-
able. Though I
liked some of the
noise structures
they put together
(however brief
those were), Harry Pussy was the
evening's low point
The Makeup are another mat-
ter entirely. Taking the stage in iden-
tical outfits of black silk shirts and
black pants, the Makeup are what
might have happened if Prince had
somehow become part of the early
'80s punk movement While his band
ripped through a blistering punk set,

Thespians bring more
diversity to campus

Nakesha Wilson, Reginald Watson and Terrence Dove (R to L) are members of Thespians
of Diversity, a theater group devoted to enhancing the involvement of minorities in drama.
Dale Williamson
Staff Writer
While Washington, D.C. has hosted
the Million Man March in an effort to
shed positive light on African-Ameri-
cans, Greenville is the home for another
positive effort The ECU Thespians of
Diversify, which was founded in 1992
by Dr. Reginald Watson of the English
Department presents an exciting oppor-
tunity for all minorities to exhibit their
dramatic talents. And, unlike Louis
Farrakhan's event this group does not
exclude women.
Seeing the Thespians of Diversity
(originally named the ECU Black Thes-
pians) as a means for improving stu-
dents' lives. Professor Watson states, "1
organized the Thespians for all stu-
dents, not just African-Americans and
minorities. But my primary focus will
still be to help enhance the involvement
of minorities in the dramatic arts
Since Watson feels that minorities
don't really get the opportunity to truly
express themselves, he sees the Thes-
pian group as a positive outlet for their
expression. "In this organization, I hope
to encourage students to not only per-
form but write their own plays and skits.
This forum will give a voice to those
that have been historically voiceless
Watson stresses.
And the voiceless have been given
a voice on the ECU campus. In Febru-
ary of 1993, Watson gathered a group
of talented students to help perform a
play he wrote himself entitled "Black
Voices From the Past The play, which
includes monologues for fictional and
actual characters from history paints a
colorful picture of the African and Afri-
can-American past Presenting audi-
ences with such historical figures as
African Queens and Kings, African
slaves, and black soldiers, Watson's play
featured actors who are still with the
Thespians of Diversity.
Chris Haywood, who portrayed
Mansa Musa and Thurgood Marshall in
Watson's production, notes that the
Thespian group is "more than a theat-
rical event It teaches a lesson in his-
tory. Not only does it entertain, it edu-
Terrence Dove, who played Ben-
jamin Banneker in 1994, agrees with
the educational value of the group. "We
serve the ECU community by indulg-
ing in multiculturism and by using indi-
vidual talents of the community to ex-
press concerns Dove sees the Thespian
group as a rare venue for voicing differ-
ent ideas about poetry, writing, drama
and thinking.
Now that the ECU Thespians of
Diversity are officially recognized as a
legitimate organization by the univer-
sity. Professor Watson has great plans
for the group. On Nov. 9, the Thespi-
ans plan to tape an appearance on Jim
Rouse's "Minority Voices" television
program, which airs on WITN-7 Sun-
days at 12:00 p.m. While exact dates
for future performances are not yet set
in stone, these performances will in-
deed be an engaging reality.
Currently, there are nine active
members within this organization.
While those with theatrical back-
grounds are strongly encouraged to
join, those less experienced are not
discouraged. Membership is open to
any interested individual.
If you desire more diversity within
our community, then force yourself into
action. Contact Reginald Watson at
328684 and let your voice be heard.

Parody distinguishes "Mad TV"

Staff Writer
Mad Magazine has arrived on the airwaves.
That's right Fox has debuted a new sketch comedy
show, and it's called "Mad TV Mads TV contingent will be
going up against NBC's "Saturday Night Live" every week,
but for their debut they only had to contend with a "Best of
SNL" special. The NBC show has only done two (that's right
two) new episodes this season before resorting to a greatest
hits clip show.
This might prompt the actors and producers of "Mad
TV" to sing in chorus with their mascot Alfred E. Newman:
"What? Me Worry?" Well, maybe they shouldn't worry yet
but this new show should be at least a little wary.
"Mad TV" did have, I admit a pretty funny opening
show. 1 was afraid that the previews (featunng a nice take
on those Budweiser frog commercials) would end up show-
ing off the funniest parts, but luckily I was wrong.
Even the opening bit showed signs of a long, funny shelf
life. "Mad TV" amiably opens with two Fox casting executives
trolling around the mean streets of LA. Stopping their van,
they ask bums, hookers, crazed veterans and postal workers,
"Hey, any of you ever do any acting? Wanna be on a TV
Following that the cast (Bryan Callen, David Herman,
Orlando Jones, Phil Lamarr. Artie Lange, Mary Scheer, Nicole

showing up by offering them free beer from one of their spon-

out pretty well, too.

Brains and King Crimson.
These Monkeys rock hard. The in-
tensity level on Screw Up never lets up.
Even when they're exploring their jazz
yearnings, they bum up enough energy
to light half of Tokyo.
The opening track is called
sourou which makes me really wish I
spoke Japanese. This one sounds like the
Boredoms fronted by cheerleaders.
If s quickly followed by "Zakuro-no-
hone a Boredoms-style tune complete
with fragmented noise guitar and
screeching, squealing, screaming vocals.
Both these tracks are sung in Japanese,
so I have no idea what they might be
about They sound pretty freaking cool,
though, and are sure to shatter eardrums
at the right decibel levels.
The first English-language track,
"Buckin' the Bolts is also the first song
1 would really call funk metal. The Mon-
keys fluctuate between Faith No More
smooth and Rage Against the Machine
choppy on this album, all at 200 miles
per hour.
One highlight of these songs is
"Tamage At a blistering seven seconds
long, this track evokes the spirit of James
Brown (no mean trick, considering that
he's still using it) and features only one,
unintelligible lyric. Awesome!
Screw Up ends with a tune called
"Shower In its six-minute running time,
"Shower" glides easily into funk, jazz,
punk and 70s prog-rock styles. The se-
ries of gasps in the middle of this tune
suggests that it's about more than just
getting clean.
Super Junky Monkey is a unique
musical experience. They're far from your
standard funk metal outfit with enough
intensity to exhaust even the most jaded

Not to be outdone, castmembers

Cube in a music video parody, "It Ain't
Easy Bein' Me The video shows the two
vocal rap stars drinking Perrier with their
entourage of accountants while still hold-
ing on to their "street" image. That one
had to have pissed off a few people.
Also an interesting (and amusing)
touch was to have the cast members
come out and do short monologues to
introduce themselves. On this front the
women in the cast showed nice poten-
tial to be really funny. Sullivan confessed
to a life in child psyche wards at the free
clinic, and that she "really wanted to be

on HBO's hysterical "Def Comedy Jam
discussed having to censor her language
on network TV without really doing so
(think many, many beepouts).
The only real downside as far as skits
went (other than one or two just not
being funny) were that some were in such
poor taste that you almost feel guilty
about laughing at them. A fake transcript
of a 911 call featuring an unhelpful op-
erator listening as the female caller is
shot to death echoes a real-life news bite
a little too much.
A skit featuring a daughter dying
of lung cancer while her mother chain
smokes around her had a similar effect
on me, until the mother spoke and
sounded just like gravel-voiced musician
actor Tom Waits. Now. that's funny.
Another major problem was that the
guest "celebrity" was Kato Kaeiin, stretch-
ing his fifteen minutes of fame to the
snapping point Kaeiin, who was touted
through the whole show as "ready to
speak his mind ruined his moment by
butchering some pretty funny lines.

purple despot himself. It was a great
and uproariously funny set. and some-
thing I'd drive many miles to see again.
With the crowd pumped by this
performance, Sonic Youth finally ap-
peared at around 10 p.m. Opening with
"Sister they went through a set that
focussed equally on the band's past and
present. The new album, Washing
Machine, got a lot of stage-time, but
not as much as most bands give to their
new material. The set included such
essential classics as "Teenage Riot
"Coo" and "Bull in the Heather but
also featured more obsure stuff like the
Lee-Ranaldo-penned "Eric's Trip
But it's not the song selectio 'hat
so impressed me at this show. I real-
ized early on that this band can't play
a song that wont thrill me. No, it's the
nature of their music that is so impres-
As a noise band. Sonic Youth deals
in sounds that most bands try to avoid.
They purposefully mis-tune their gui-
tars so that they sound as harsh as
possible. They play into their moniters,
calling up squelching, ear-piercing feed-
back. In other worus, they make what
would be a lot of godawful noise in
less talented hands (like those of Harry
But what Sonic Youth does with
that noise is unbelievable. Skirting the
edge of tonality, they produce rhythms
by playing non-rhythms off each other.
Lee Ranaldo's rhythm guitar noise in-
teracts with Kim Gordon's bass noise,
which interacts in turn with the su-
preme noise of Thurston Moore's lead
guitar, all played to a back-beat of bro-
ken rhythms banged out by under-
stated Sonic Youth drummer Steve
Shelley. It's improv jazz played with
And that's just on the bouncy
stuff. What's even more amazing is the
way they layer noise on the softer
tracks, using ugly sounds to create
beautiful ones.
This is not a variation on a theme,
like the blues-based rock of every crap
band since Led Zeppelin. This is not a
combination of existing mainstream
sounds, as played by Dave Matthews.
This is something different. Sonic
Youth doesn't push the envelope, they
are the envelope. In fact they're the
envelope, the mail box, the whole freak-
ing post office.
It's that unrelenting creativity,
that artistic drive, that makes them the
best band on earth. Their music may
not be for everybody; I doubt Sonic
Youth will ever see REM-style success.
But 20 years from now, they're all rock
music historians are going to be talk-
ing about And right now, they're one
of the only things that still makes me
give a rat's ass about rock.
So the next time someone sings
the praises of the bland, safe, simper-
ing likes of Hooue and the Blowfish,
listen closer. The screaming you hear
will be mine.

one party over another. Because of that
unbiased approach, Dead Presidents
provides a strong, believable portrait of
a life turned sour.
The showcase of the film is a bank
heist that Anthony plans with Kirby,
Skippy and two others. Painted in a skel-
eton-like manner, they look like shadows
of their former selves, an appropriate
metaphor for the internal changes oc-
curring in them. Far from a generic ac-
tion sequence of a bank robbery. Dead
Presidents offers a scene shot with fi-
nesse and flair that actually downplays
violence. The brutality seems almost sur-
real, as it must for the characters. Not
until later do they quite realize just what
they have done.
Perhaps not until later will the
Hughes brothers realize what they have
done. These young directors have fash-
ioned a moving, artistic film that will bum
away at the core of its audience's soul.
This is a masterful piece of filmaking.
On a scale of one to W.Dead Presi-
dents rates a nine.

Swim meet successful

Lady Pirate swimmers take off during the PurpleGold meet. This intersquad meet for the
women's and men's teams helps prepare the swimmers for upcoming conference events
Dill Dillard
Staff Writer
A coach looks for promise in his
or her team when the team conducts
an inter-squad scrimmage, and
ECU's swim team coach. Rick Kobe,
found it Tuesday at the PurpleGold
swim meet held at Minges Aquatic
Center. Promise for Coach Kobe's
squad came in the form of six bro-
ken records, four new marks com-
ing from the women's team and two
from the men's squad.
"1 can't say how excited 1 arn
about these times said Kobe. This
meet proved to be the fourth
straight win for both of the Gold
squads. Despite the overall score,
the Purple squads came away with
their share of record times. In the
women's competition, both squads
came away with record marks.
For the Purple, junior Eliza-
beth Bradner established a 2:10.66
time in the 200-yard backstroke. The
Gold, however, came away with three
records starting with the 400-yard
medley relay team. This experienced
medley team, consisting of Amanda
Atkinson, Hilary Stokes, Kim Field
and anchor Beth Humphrey
trimmed their time to a quick
4:03.75. Stokes, from Winston-Sa-
lem, would go on to a record of
25.64 in the 50-yard freestyle and
Kim Field snagged another record
when she established a time of
2:12.00 in the 200-yard butterfly.
Sophomore Stacie Haymes took the
top spots in the 3-meter as well as
the meter diving events.
"T1 women are defending
champs, so they are the team to beat
in a very competitive CAA swimming
conference Kobe commented after
the meet. "Our kids are getting
faster with every practice
Improvement and leadership is
what Kobe is looking for in his men's
team. "1 was thrilled with the effort
I saw out of the men's team. Of
course, like any other coach, I ex-
pect the seniors to step up and be-
come the leaders, but for our team
to go to the next level, all of our
swimmers will have to step it up

The swim team's Rachel
Atkinson is ready for this year's sea-
son. She feels this is a strong team,
one of the strongest since she has
been here at ECU. She possibly sees
another conference title for this
Atkinson, a senior from
Fredricksburg, Va is majoring in ex-
ercise science with a concentration
in health and fitness. After gradua-
tion in the spring, she wants to pur-
sue a graduate degree in physical
therapy. She mentioned that coach-
ing may be in her future. When she
is not swimming, Atkinson enjoys
shopping, hanging out with friends,
relaxing, watching movies and espe-
cially baking.
Not only is Atkinson a threat in
the pool but also in the classroom.
She is a CAA Scholar Athlete and pre-
viously has been on the dean's list.
Atkinson's personal goals for this
season are to swim her best times, and
make the top eight in all three of her
events which are the 1000. 500 and
200 free-styles. Atkinson says she en-
joys her sport because it is both an
individual and team sport. Individu-
als have a chance to shine, but it takes
the whole team to win. It is even bet-
ter when the team is close- knit and
gets along outside of the pool.
She offers advice to her fellow
swimmers before meets and helps
them along when things might not be
going to well. Atkinson is a team sup-
porter always cheering people on.
"I would like to tell all of the Lady
Pirates to roll on said Atkinson.
Atkinson said the worst thing
about the sport is when a swimmer
comes into the pool with a negative
attitude. It only causes them to swim
badly and become more frustrated.
She says the only thing you can do
when you have a day like that is to
calm down and get your head screwed
on right.
Not only do the other swimmers
enjoy her, but so does the coaching
"She is a leader in and out of
the water said Assistant Coach
Brent St. Pierre. "She is one of the
best swimmers to come through East
"All of her hard work has paid
off for her over the past three years
going into her fourth year added
Head Coach Kobe. "She is one of
the top distance swimmers in the
CAA. She is an absolute pleasure to
coach. Not everyone is a pleasure to
coach, but she is

The ECU Lady Pirate Soccer team dominated the
field over the Mt. Olive College Trojans. The Pirates
raised their record to 2-12 overall with the shutout
victory, winning the game 3-0.
The Monday game was played well by
the team throughout the entire 90 min-
"It felt good to win said fresh
man Renee Larson from Toms River,
N.J. Larson scored the first goal 40
minutes into the first half and later
explained, "I believe everyone on the
team was happy. I feel it was impor-
tant to get tliat victory under our belts.
It gave us confidence for our upcoming
Freshman defender Kristen Thor from
Pittsford, N.Y. scored in the second half for the Lady
Pirates. An hour into the game the Trojans still
hadn't scored and Pirate Shari Tomasetti put in
the last goal of the game to tie the noose on Mt.
"We came together and played well as a team
said Tomasetti a Springfield.Va. native.
The action of the game was over-
whelmingly on the Trojan side of the
field. The Lady Pirates swarmed the
Mt. Olive team with delicate yet
forceful precision, confidence and
persistence. The Trojan's goal-
keeper, Eli Webb, recorded an ex-
hausting 20 saves against the Pi-
rates. ECU's senior goalkeeper,
Joey Clark, made one save during
the game.
The ECU Lady Pirate Soccer Team
played their second to last home game yester-
day against Charleston Southern.

Staff Writer
The Pirates host the Temple
Owls this weekend for Homecoming
and are looking to rebound from their
loss to Cincinnati in an effort to gain
some momentum going into the sec-
ond half of the season.
ECU, undefeated at home, is 2-0
against Big East opponents this sea-
son, posting wins against Syracuse
and West Virginia. Temple has only
won one game all year, getting their
first Big East conference win in the
school's history against Pittsburgh
last week.
The open date this past week-
end has given the Pirates an oppor-
tunity to recover from injuries stem-
ming from their confrontation with
Cincinnati. Freshman noseguard
Travis Darden, who suffered a
sprained ankle in the game, is slated
to play on Saturday. Offensive tack-
les Charles Boothe and Ronnie
Suddith are ready to go as well. Full-
back Jerris McPhail, who sprained his
wrist at Cincinnati, is questionable
for the Temple contest
In the loss against the Bearcats,
quarterback Marcus Crandell estab-
lished a pair of career records.
Crandell now has 368 career comple-
tions out of 681 pass attempts.
Crandell, a junior from
Robersonville, is now second place
on the list for all-time career passing
yards at ECU. As of the West Virginia
game, Crandell had 4,303 yards, sur
passing Travis Hunter (3,928) in the
No. 2 position. Crandell has tallied his
total in just 20 games. Legendary ECU
quarterback Jeff Blake holds the all-
time record with 5,133 yards.
Crandell is also second on the
single-season passing list with 2,687
yard performance in 1994. Once again,
Jeff Blake is on top of the list, amass-
ing 3,073 yards in 1991.
Mitchell Galloway also had a
record-setting performance against
Cincinnati. The junior H-back broke
into .the top 10 for pass receptions
with 63 and leads the Pirates so far
this season with 26.
Jason Nichols played his best
game ever as a Pirate versus Cincin-
nati. The sophomore flanker caught
seven passes for 108 yards, equaling
a personal best for receptions. Nichols'
receiving yardage total was a personal
best for a single game.
Senior linebacker Mark Libiano
is among the candidates nominated
for the 1995 Butkus Award. The
award, named for Dick Butkus, is pre-
sented annually to the nation's out-
standing linebacker by Butkus and
the Downtown Athletic Club of Or-
lando, Inc.
The list, initially containing 61
candidates, will be trimmed to 10
semi-finalists today.
Three finalists will be named on
Nov. 16. Libiano, who leads (he team
in tackles, has 72 sticks in the six
games that have been played this
year. He had 135 last year, and went
on to be named the AP All-Indepen-
dent Defensive Player-of-the-Year.
Interesting Pirate Facts:
ECU began intercollegiate
football competition in 1932, los-
ing their first game to Presbyte-
rian College, 39-0.
The Pirate football program is
the fifth youngest in the NCAA.
Only UNLV, Air Force, Florida
State and Houston are younger.
The overall record for Pirate
football is 285-270-11 a 51.3 win-
ning percentage. No games were
played between 1942 and 1945,
due to World War II.
ECU has competed in three
bowl games since turning Division-
1 in 1977: The 1978 Independence
Bowl, the 1992 Peach Bowl, and
the 1994 Liberty Bowl.
The top three winningest
coaches in ECU history are John
Christenbury (with a .800 winning
percentage), Pat Dye (.727) and
Clarence Stasavich (.647).
Stasavich hac more wins than any
of his counterparts, with a career
record of 50-27-1.
The largest margin of victory
for the Pirates is 74 points. ECU
defeated the Newport News Ap-
prentice 74-0 in 1959.
The Pirates are 8-20 on tele-
vision; six of those games were na-
tionally televised. In their first TV
game in history, the Pirates de-
feated The Citadel, 27-21.
Temple defeated ECU on the
field in 1986, but the use of an
ineligible player forced the Owls
to forfeit the game at the season's

The men's soccer team battled
it out with the UNC-A Bulldogs to
come away with their third shutout
win of the season. The scoring of
the two goals came in the mid and
late second half to win the game 2-
The game, played on Monday,
was intense throughout the entire
match. The first half was played well
with the ball moving furiously up
and down the field. Pirates' Marc
Mullin. Dan Staton and Chris
Padgett all took shots at the UNC-A
goal dominating the field. The first
half ended with the score 0-0, but
ECU was came on strong in the first
half and the momentum carried over
into the second half.
"We stress playing shutout soc-
cer said Head Coach Wiberg. "We
were very poised and composed
The Pirates looked ready to play
in the second half. Seniors Mullin
and Staton as well as Dusty Belk,
and Eddie Stephens took charge
with Staton and Belk scoring and
Mullin and Stephens adding with

well together said Belk.

Stephens who came on the cross.
The ball fell slightly short, but luck-
ily it landed right in front of Staton
who was able to drive it in.
"The goal was a gift, pretty
much, from Eddie said Staton.
In the middle of the second half,
the team suffered a shock. Freshman

be out for a minimum of four weeks
while his injury heals.
"It's really unfortunate about
Chris said Head Coach Will
Wiberg. "He has started in the last

The Pirates didn't let the injury
stop their momentum. The ECU de-

Bills coach recovers after surgery
Marv Levy, coach of the Buffalo
Bills, had surgery Tuesday for pros-
tate cancer.
'The surgery was highly suc-
cessful and coach Levy is resting
comfortably at this time said Dr.
Robert Huben, chairman of the uro-
logic oncology department at
Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
"His condition is officially
listed as good
Doctors have told Levy that his
cancer was found in an early stage.
If the tumor is confined to the pros-
tate, there is a 60 percent to 80 per-
cent chance that surgery will result
In a complete cure, Huben said.
Levy learnee apart more than
it has Marv. He's tough and strong.
He just said, Let's go about our
Levy, 70, who has coached Buf-
falo since 1986, said the cancer was
found during a routine physical be-
fore training camp. The diagnosis
was confirmed in August after an
examination at Northwestern Medi-
cal Center in Chicago.
Levy has a realistic chance of
making it back for the Bills' Nov.
12 game against Atlanta, given the
Experience of other prostate pa-
. tients, according to Levy's doctor.
"That certainly is a reasonable
goal and expectation with today's
standards Huben said.
"I'm going to miss some
games Levy said Monday. "I don't
know exactly how many, but I guar-
antee you it will be sooner than
what they said If all goes well. I'll
be back and ready to go again
About one in 10 men develop
prostate cancer,
according to the
American Foun-
dation for L'ro-
logic Disease.
Roughly 40.000
men will die of
the disease this
year, the Journal
of the National
Cancer Institute
has estimated.

Levy called a meeting four hours
ahead of his normal schedule a day
after the Bills beat the Seattle
"It was a pretty serious meet-
ing special teams ace Steve
Tasker said. 'The part Marv got
emotional was when he started talk-
ing about us. The fact we ve won
games without key players, and he
says we'll win without him
Assistant head coach Eliiah

Levy recovers from surgery. Levy
is expected to be in the hospital for
about a week, and he will monitor

Levy kept his sense of humor
when he announced his illness at a
news conference. As he did with his
players, Levy

Bills since 1985, has primarily been
running backs coach. He coordi-
nated the special teams in 1986 and
was given the added responsibility
of assistant head coach in March
Pitts, a former standout run-
ning back for the Green Bay Pack-
ers, played in four NFL champion-
ships and two Super Bowls under
Vince Lombardi. Pitts' pro coach-
ing career began as an assistant
with the Los Angeles Rams in 1973,
and he makes his debut as a head
coach against New England on
Since becoming Buffalo's
coach, Levy's record is 101-55-0, in-
cluding playoffs.
The three road games in Levy'
absence - New England, Miami and
Indianapolis - will show whether
Buffalo is a legitimate contender in
the AFC. Buffalo (5-1) could win
half of its remaining 10 games and
would likely have a record good
enough for the postseason.

The men's Gold squad showed
poise in a close meet with the Purple
team, as they went on to win the meet
in the last event. The Gold not only
came out of the contest on top, but
they set two new records in route to
their forth straight PurpleGold vic-
tory. Junior Chris Bembenek was the
first to snap a record for the men
when he turned in a time of 1:56.11
in the 200-yard backstroke.
Bembenek's teammate, Lee
Hutchens. was soon to follow with a
record of his own with a time of
4:49.71 in the 500-yard freestyle.
"The men finished fourth last
year in the CAA. but 1 feel that they
are ready to take it a notch above
last year's performance and contend
for the top three spots Kobe added.
With the fast times turned in
for the Bucs along with a talented
diving squad ied by 1995 CAA Rookie
Diver-of-the-Year Stephen Barnes, the
future looks bright for the Men's
team to improve upon last year's
fourth place finish in the CAA.

ECU will be trying to regroup from a
heartbreaking loss to the Cincinnati
Bearcats, when Temple visits Dowdy-
Ficklen stadium on Saturday for Home-
coming. Temple on the other hand is com-
ing off a Big East Conference win against
Pittsburgh last Saturday. Temple defeated
the Panthers 29-27, for their first victory
of the season.
ECU is trying to find out what has
happened to their offense. The Pirates
were held scoreless in the second half in
the loss to Cincinnati, and they could only
get three points on the board in the sec-
ond half against West Virginia .Senior run-
ning back Jerris McPhail injured his wrist
in the Cincinnati game, and is day to day.
If McPhail can't go look for redshirt fresh-
man Scott Harley to fill the void. The Nep-
tune, NJ native has carried the ball 23
times for 88 yards this season. The in-
jury bug also hit noseguard Travis Darden
in the Cincinnati contest. Darden injured
his ankle, but is expected to play against

He ranked fifteenth nationally in passing

Burris has passed for 1102 yards and has
accounted for 1169 yards of total offense.
"He's a little over six feet tall, very
agile, athletic, has got a good arm, and
is hard to sack said ECU Head Coach
Steve Logan.
Temple has one of the bigger offen-
sive lines that the Pirates will face this
season. It is anchored by 6-foot-6 323
pound left tackle Jon Clark, and 6-foot-2

Sophomore flanker Troy Kersey is

The End Zone
October 19,1995
Nichols a major factor on offense
Amanda Ross
End Zone Staff Writer
After an impressive start in 1994,
wide receiver Jason Nichols hopes to
have a repeat season this year. The
Norcross, Ga. native continues to strive
toward helping the Pirates get back to
the Liberty Bowl.
Nichols was a redshirt freshman
during the '93 season. Last year he
came out ready to prove himself and
that's what he accomplished. Nichols
had an outstanding season, receiving a
number of awards and registering some
very impressive numbers in his first
season of play.
Nichols was courted by Georgia,
N.C. State and Tulane , but he chose
ECU so he could play wide receiver. In
high school during his senior year, he was
a quarterback where he threw for 945
yards and 11 touchdowns, while rush-
ing for 830 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Last year, Nichols led the Pirates
with 42 receptions for 450 yards and
two touchdowns. He set school records
for season catches and yards by a fresh-
man, and was named Outstanding New-
comer on the squad by the coaching
"Jason is a guy who the defensive
players on the squad knew would be a
good player for our team" said Pirate
linebacker B.J. Crane. "While he was a
redshirt in 1993, he terrorized our de-
fense in practice
Coming off that explosive season,
Nichols feels his performance so far this
season has been okay.
"I haven't gotten the ball as much
so far this year as I did last year
However, Nichol's momentum and
numbers are still high for this season.
In six games he has 23 receptions for
237 yards. His performance puts him
second on the receiving list for number
of yards this season. Nichols is just be-
hind Mitch Galloway, who leads the re-
ceivers with 307 yards on 26 receptions.
An expert on punt returns, Nichols
has 13 returns for 159 yards. His long-
est return came in the CMU game where
he brought a punt back for 66 yards.
He is averaging 12.2 yards on punt re-
Nichols feels he has to come out
this year and play better than he did
last year because people expect play-
ers to perform better and at a higher
level than they do their first year of play-
"1 felt like I had to come back out
this year and play harder, because you
tend to get into what they call a sopho-
more slump said Nichols.
Nichols, who doesn't seem to be in
a slump this season, doesn't set too
many goals for himself. "I just go out
there and try to play my best

Nichols would like
to make more of an
impact on return-
ing punts.
The tough
schedule the Pi-
rates endured dur-
ing September
took somewhat of
a physical toll on
Nichols and his
"Physically it
has been a little
tough. We had a
couple of guys go
down last game
The mental im-
pact is similar to
what the Pirates
expected. They
knew the first five
games were not go-
ing to be easy.
"We wanted to take on a big sched
ule so we could let people know we re-
ally can play
ECU proved they could hang with
the big dogs by coming ot't of Septem-
ber with a 3-2 record, when most crit-
ics had them with a 1-4 record going
into October.
With the loss at Cincinnati, a game
most people predicted ECU would win,
Nichols realizes
the rest of the
season will have
to be played as
hard as possible.
"You can't
take anybody as
a joke in college
football, because
anybody that
lines up across
from you is ca-
pable of beating
you he said.
With an open
date last week,
Nichols believes
the team is more
prepared for
Temple. The open
date allowed the
team to relax
their bodies from
the stress and get
people healthy
who are injured.
He feels they are
ready to hand a loss to the Owls.
"We are coming off a loss and we
are upset about that, so we are just go-
ing to take our time and let it all loose
on Temple
Even though the Pirates lost at Cin-
cinnati, Nichols had seven receptions for
108 yards, equaling his previous best
for receptions and setting a new per-
sonal record for receiving yardage in a
When Nichols isn't battling it out
on the football field, you will find him
enjoying a number of different activi-
ties. He likes listening to music, watch-
ing other sport playing cards and
Nichols tries not to look down the
road too far, but he does have future
plans for himself.
After graduation he hopes to get a
job in the field of information process-
ing. He even sees teaching as a pos-
sible job on his horizon.
But as much as he would enjoy a
career in the NFL, he realizes it is not
that easy to make it into the pros, but
that's not to say he wouldn't enjoy play-
ing the pro game.
"I would love to play in the NFL,
but I have to let things work themselves
out. I can't sit here and put all mv hopes
into making it. I let everything take its

The End Zone

E-Mac" brings discipline to Pirate defense
Brian Paiz
End Zone Iditor
"We are trying to
get back to the
Liberty Bowl, and
win it,
� Emmanuel McDanie
Looking back to 1991, you would
have never thought a running back pros-
pect from Georgia would end up leader
in the Pirate secondary. But that is just
what has happened as Emmanuel
McDaniel, now a senior, kno.vs that in his
final year as a Pirate, that personal goals
go by the wayside and team goals move
into the forefront. All "E- Mac" wants to
do is make that return trip to Memphis
on Dec. 31.
"We are trying to
get back to the Liberty
Bowl and win it said
McDaniel. "I want to
leave something for the
you.iger players so they
can build upon "We
have told the younger
players to stick with it
and live and learn
said McDaniel.
McDaniel came to ECU in 1991 from
Jonesboro High School, where he rushed
for over 900 yards his senior season. He
was also a Regional champion in the 330
intermediate hurdles. However, things
changed when he got to Greenville, as he
was moved to the Pirate secondary in
1992, where he backed up cornerback
Travis Render as a freshman.
'ECU recruited me as a running
back said McDaniel. "When I got here
my freshman year they moved me to de-
fensive back, then to receiver, and then
back to defensive back. I think I got moved
about four times before I got stationary
In 1993 McDaniel played in all 12
games, in which he started eight of those
at cornerback and had two interceptions.
The year 1994 proved to be
McDaniel's coming out season. He started
all 12 games at left cornerback, and fin-
ished the regular season with 51 tackles.
McDaniel had 11 stops against nationally
ranked Auburn, and ended the season tied
for 18th in the nation in interceptions.
McDaniel was named Most improved De-
fensive Player by the coaching staff,
McDaniel has seen his share of de-
fensive coordinators since his arrival at
ECU, but Paul iette is at the top of
McDaniel's list.
"I feel like lette is the best at coach
ing us in getting to the ball. He is defi-
nitely the best defensive coordinator I have
had in my career McDaniel said.
McDaniel has seen a defense, that was
once known as one of the worst in the
nation, make great strides in his four years
here, but E-Mac knows that they
can't let up one bit.
"We are playing pretty good
on defense, but we can step it up.
I feel like at times we let teams
get drive on us that we shouldn't
let them get, but otherwise I feel
that the defense is doing a pretty
good job
McDaniel knows that Pirate
fans are some of the most loyal
in the country, and he says even
when he gets criticized he doesn't
let it affect his playing.
"I take it
as construc-
tive criticism,
whether it's
good or bad
"You take it in
stride whether
someone says
good or bad
McDaniel hopes to go to the
next level after college, but if that
doesn't happen the criminal jus-
tice major has a plan for his fu-
" I hope to go to the next
level said McDaniel. "But if I
don't, I am going to try to go to
graduate school, and then try to
get into law school somewhere
McDaniel says that football has
taught him a lot about life that
will be valuable in the future in
his hopes of becoming a lawyer.
"Discipline and studying are
the two major lessons I have
learned said McDaniel. "Of
course, being a lawyer, you have
to spend a lot of hours in law
school and in the library, and playing
football and going to college has taught
me to concentrate on what I need to ac-
So far this season, McDaniel leads
the team in interceptions with four, and
has played in 436 plays for the Pirates,
which leads the defense. In the Cincin-
nati game McDaniel had one of his more
acrobatic interceptions as he leaped in
the end zone to pick off a Bearcat pass.
"That play helped my confidence out.
Any play we make on defense can only
help everyone gain confidence
McDaniel and the Pirate defense can
only hope that their confidence level will
have them "Walking in Memphis" by
season's end.

Burke moves into defensive forefront
Brad Oldham
Ant. End Zone Editor
Ever since Steve Logan has been
head coach at ECU, he has stressed to
his team the importance of putting the
accomplishments of the team before the
One player who has lived up to that
ideal is middle linebacker Marvin Burke.
Burke, the 6-foot-0, 249 pound junior
out of Jacksonville, Fla. has improved
serve player as a true freshman, Burke
feels he has improved in his three sea-
sons here in Greenville.
"I feel I have progressed a lot. I
have learned to control my temper, and
I have learned how to take coaching,
which has overall made me better. I still
think there are areas where I can do
better though. I still want to get better
against the run and really get to know
my assignments. Basically, I'm just try-
ing to improve every week and get bet-
ter Burke said.
Marvin Burke says his favorite childhood sport hero was Sam Huff,
a brilliant career in the NFL, is a member of the NFL Hall of Fame
his play tremendously this year, help-
ing to strengthen an already solid and
consistent core of ECU linebackers.
Last season Burke battled through-
out the year with fellow mike linebacker
B.J. Crane. Burke played in all 12 games
last year, starting five, including South
Carolina, Virginia Tech and Auburn. It
was a healthy rivalry for the two young
players, who pushed each other at the
position in order to raise their game to
the next level.
"B.J. and I have always been com-
petitive Burke said. "To tell you the
truth, it doesn't even matter much who
starts for us because we have such a
good rotation
Last year Burke was credited with
47 total tackles and 23 solo tackles,
including a 7-yard sack against Auburn.
After maintaining the role of a re-
"Whiie watching Marvin play as a
true freshman last year, I made a com-
ment that he could be the best tackle
to tackle player on our defense Logan
said at his news conference on Monday
"This year he has proven to be so
Logan's prediction is clear both on
paper and on the field. Burke has
started all six games, and is second on
the team in total tackles with 58.
"He's got great instincts, and he's
one of the toughest players on our
team Logan said.
With fellow stand-out linebackers
such as Mark Libiano and Morris Fore-
man surrounding him. Burke has made
this ECU defensive line that much bet-
"Mark and Morris are definitely the
leaders for us, especially in the middle
Burke said. "We have a real tight group
of linebackers among us. You could even
include Daren Hart in that category,
even though he plays strong safety. All
of us just play very well together be-
cause we always know what the other
one is doing
Working so well with his fellow de-
fensive teammates on the field is some-
thing that was learned early on under
"Ever since I've been here, Coach
Logan has told us that there will be no
individuals on this
team. No individual
can go out and win
a game for us. It
takes all 11 players
to come together
as one, and I just
try to do my part
to help make every-
thing click Burke
"He's gotten
better just like ev-
erybody else on
this defense
Logan said.
Possibly the
biggest improve-
ment in Burke's
game has been his
consistency with
the pass coverage.
"I knew that
once he got inter-
ested in pass cov-
erage, he would re-
ally make an im-
pact on this de-
fense, and that is
what he's done this
year Logan said.
"He plays the run heavy well, which
is really one of the biggest steps for-
ward for our defense Logan said.

Huff who had
Over the last six games, some cri
ics have noted that the offense has bee
riding the defense's successes too muc
and not pulling in their own weight. Th
way the two sides of the ball work tc
gether is an integral part of the gam
in Burke's eyes.
"I think the defense should be re
sponsible for winning games Burk
said. "The offense will eventually com
around and be successful for us, we?
know that. The defense just has to mak
sure we don't get scored on until tha
When taking a step back and tool'
ing at Burke from afar, its easy to se
why he admires former Redskin and G
ants linebacker Sam Huff so much. Bot
surrounded themselves with excellence
casting off the spotlight in order to ge
the job done in a professional manner
"When you talk about the great line
man of all time, you often don't hea
people talk about Sam Huff Burk
said. "But here was a guy who was nice
calm and collected, who never did an
thing oirty or wrong on the field, bu
still maintained that tough-nosed att;
tude that earned him success
Burke sees himself in a simila
light, letting his competitive edge b
released on the competition.
"I'm a very laid back guy off of tlv
field Burke said. "Basically I just le
my frustrations come out on the field,
don't know what it is, but when I ge
on the field, something comes over me.
Good thing he's on our side.

Rules abundant for homecoming
Brandon Waddell
End Zone Correspondent
Tailgating home games are as im-
ortant to the ECU student body as the
inal score is to the Athletic Depart-
nent. This long-standing social tradition
�f gathering with a group of friends and
jetting loose before the game are nearly
In order to ensure the safety of all
ailgaters, the Athletic Department had
assed a few rules and regulations they
elieve will help all of us have a good
ut safe afternoon of Pirate Football.
All university parking lots open at
J a.m. and only one car is allowed per
marking space. Pirate fans need to keep
n mind that the lots tend to fill quickly
and it's also Homecoming so come and
park early.
The Homecoming parade will start
at 10 a.m. at the Elm Street Gymna-
sium. It will follow Elm to Fifth Street,
then turn left on Fifth. The big parade
will follow Fifth past the Chancellor's
house and turn right at Reade Circle.
(It's the same route as last year's pa-
There are no kegs allowed in the
parking lots so bring your beer in cases.
At gametime, everyone remaining in the
parking lots will be asked to either go
to the stadium or get off the premises.
Leave your whistles and other an-
noying noise makers in the car because
they're not allowed in the stadium ei-
ther. Campus police will also be at the
gates to ensure, among other things,
that you don't bring your liquor drinks
into Dowdy-Ficklen.
There are no plastic bottles, contain-
ers or coolers permitteJ so be careful
and don't get pinched by the law. And if
your luck is anything like mine, the one
game you're thrown out of is the one
where Jerris McPhail rushes for 300
yards, Morris Foreman makes 32 crip-
pling solo tackles and Marcus Crandell
throws 16 touchdowns, so watch your-
self because they'll be watching you.
Some of these rules may seem frivo-
lous, but the Athletic Department has
the best interests of the student body in
"We want to see students fill the stu-
dent section have a good time tail-
gating, but do it responsibly stated Lee
Workman, assistant athletic director for
tickets and promotion.
ECU home games are memorable
events. Ask anyone who's attended a
few football games in Greenville.
They'll talk to you about the great time
they had tailgating. The administration
will also have a close watch on the stu-
dents since it's Homecoming so have
a good time getting loose, but don't
overdo it by passing into an alcohol
induced coma prior to gametime.
