(AP) - The nation's space
agency would have to live with a
3 percent funding reduction un-
der an authorization bill passed
by the Senate.
The legislation, approved by
voice vote Thursday, would autho-
rize $13.8 billion for the National
Aeronautics and Space Adminis-
tration in fiscal 1996. The bill goes
to conference with the House,

regional development services, the
citizens of eastern North Carolina will
see what the Global TransPark is all

AIDS awareness hits home
Several activities
planned to
educate public
Stephanie Eaton
Staff Writer
In the month of October the na-
tion is taking a stand against a
deadly killer in observing AIDS
awareness month.
HIV can be transmitted by shar-
ing intravenous needles with a per-
son who is infected, having unpro-
tected sex with a person who is in-
tainted blood and a blood to blood
exchange from a pregnant woman
to her unborn child. A person can-
not get AIDS through everyday con-
tact. A person cannot get AIDS
through kissing, clothes, mosquito
bites, sweat, tears, drinking from a
water fountain or a toilet seat.
These misconceptions are why
it is important for a person to be-
come more informed about AIDS.
There are several organizations in
the area that help individuals leam
more about AIDS.
The Regional AIDS Prevention
Project (RAPP) is a group of con-
cerned professionals and lay persons
who work together to inform the
fected, a blood transfusion with citizens of Greenville and surround-
ing counties about how to prevent
the spread of the HIV infection.
The development of this re-
gional HIV prevention plan and re-
lated RAPP activities are supported
by the HIVSTD section of the N.C.
Department of Environment, Health
and Natural Resources and the Cen-
ters for Disease Control (CDC) in At-
lanta, Ga. The HIVSTD Section
staff use RAPP's regional HIV pre-
vention plan to prepare the state-
wide HIV prevention plan. The state-
wide is the basis of the HIV preven-
tion grant application which is sub-
mitted to the CDC.

A new entrance to campus, discus-
sion of student fee increases, the nam-
ing of athletic rooms and funding lur
damages to a soybean field were all top-
ics of concern for ECU's Board of Trust-
ees last Friday, Oct 20.
The trustees met at 1) a.m. in
Mendenhall Student Center. Finances
were one area of importance.
Development and construction of
t, intramural sports complex behind
the allied health building is estimated
to cost around $3 million. Richard
Brown, vice chancellor of business af-
fairs, requested taking out a loan; per-
mission to obtain a bank note of around
$1.6 million was approved. The stadium
expansion will also cost considerably
more than was nst expected, leaving
the question. "Where's the money com-
ing from?"
Brown's reply - "That's what we're
working on
Brown also introduced Bruce Frye,
director of facility development and plan-
ning, who presented visuals of a new
campus entrance. Flye showed the
board artists' renditions of a landscaped
entrance from 10th Street, beside the
ECU Police Department A formal en-
trance was also proposed for the Fifth
Street entrance to campus which will
cost an estimated $250,000.
Brown cited Joyner Library's con-
tinued need of funds for journal sub-
"We've done calculations that re-
veal, of the 16 (state) institutions in-
volved, we've come out number 14 (in
funding) said Chancellor Richard
Because North Carolina's general
administration has changed the time
table concerning student fees, the board
has agreed to make recommendations
in their Dec. 10 meeting.
Student Government Association
President Ian Eastman was present at
the meeting and was commended by
various board members for bringing stu-
dents and administrators together in
deciding future student fee increases.
Brown said they are hoping to keep any
increases below a five percent margin.
ECU's football contract with N.C.
State was also discussed. Athletic Di-i
rector Mike Hamrick said Charlotte of-
ficials are expecting a $25-30 million
impact on the city when the two teams
meet next year. After much laughter and
accusations of jest, the board agreed to
raise $300 for Hamrick to pay a soy-
bean farmer, an N.C State alumni, for
field damages caused by an emergency
plane landing a few weeks ago.
Shared Visions was also on the
agenda; the campaign has raised more
than $60 million to date.
Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs.
Alfred Matthews, proposed an amend-
ment stating that previous criminal
records may hinder acceptance into the
Five rooms in the sports medicine
facility were named after ECU VIPs. one
of which was a board member.
A proposal for an asthma center
and continued use of telemedicine in
diagnosing patients were brought up in
the health sciences area.
In Eakin's address to the board he
commended Coble and Israel for their
hard work and the School of Human
Environmental Sciences for receiving its
three-year accreditation. He also noted
the NCAA self-study certification, as well
as the opening of the Ledonia Wright
Cultural Center on the same day.
Dr. Charles Coble, dean of the
School of Education and Dr. Richard
Gary Israel received letters of commen-
dation which signified, "contributions

ranged from how it feels to live with
AIDS to the AIDS quilt.
Today, a panel will be discuss-
ing how to deal with AIDS on an
emotional, financial and medical

AIDS will touch everyone's life in
some form, therefore, we must edu-

Acquired Immune Deficiency
Syndrome (AIDS) is a combination
of symptoms caused by the Human
Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). HIV
kills specific white blood cells that
are needed by the body's immune
system to fight a variety of disease
causing organisms. The disease was
first reported in 1981 and has
spread rapidly ever since. It is esti-
mated that there are over one mil-
lion cases of HIV in the United
States. Between 40,000 to 80,000
cases are reported every year.

When AIDS was first intro-
duced to the United States every-
one looked toward it as being a gay
disease. As the years passed people
like Ryan White, Arthur Ashe and
Magic Johnson taught us that AIDS
knows no prejudice. AIDS does not
discriminate against a person be-
cause of their race, their gender,
their nationality, their age or their
sexual preference.

ease. AIDS can affect anyone

"The panel will educate stu-

how to get more students invovled
in the political process. Students
must realize that they are the future

"The major benefit of this pro-
gram is the information that it pro-
vides. Many students do not know
who the candidates are and what the
candidates believe in said Dr. Car-
mine Scavo, a political science pro-
fessor at ECU.
The program allows students to
become more involved in the cam-
paign process, and to become aware
that government affects everyone's
life. Abortion, foreign policy and the
cutback of government funds and
student loans are such issues.
"Everyone should be active in
the campaign in some way Scavo
said. "It may be simply by just vot-
ing. But voting is very important, it
is the building block of democracy.
"Students have had a long his-
tory of being an active voice in the
government and it is important for
that tradition to continue. The ques-

The East Carolinian
Our View
Homecoming 1995 is over. The banners have come down,
the floats have been dismantled and the big game has been
played and won.
All that remains now are the many fond memories left be-
hind in the minds of students and alumni - well, almost.
This year the 1994 Homecoming King and Queen found
themselves without tickets to the Homecoming game. Usually,
the elected king and queen remain on campus the following
year and receive their tickets as students for free. However,
this year both the king and the queen were graduates, alumni
of ECU.
After being contacted by the past Homecoming queen as
to how she should buyacquire tickets, the Homecoming Com-
mittee thought that it would be a gesture of good will to offer
the king and queen free tickets to the game, so the Athletic
Department was contacted and asked to donate the tickets.
Once the situation discussed, a decision was made. The Home-
coming King and Queen could have the tickets - at half-price.
As a result, the Homecoming Committee decided to pay
for the king and queen's tickets rather than have them pay for
their tickets themselves. Somehow, you have to wonder if these
students' memories of Homecoming and their alma mater are
not quite so fond.
During the weeks leading up to Homecoming weekend, the
Homecoming Committee vehemently encouraged students to
support both the Homecoming activities and game.
Students responded. As reported in the TEC on Oct 19,
Amber Hoffman, a member of the Homecoming Committee,
said, "The participation, in general, has increased this year,
and that's really good. The committee has worked really hard
While the Homecoming Committee came through for the
past Homecoming King and Queen, the Athletic Department
did not Even though the department is not in charge of any
Homecoming proceedings, it is in charge of the Homecoming
game, which is treated and put in the budget just like any other
home game. The department, which is not funded by the state,
uses home games to create revenue from the sale of tickets.
But, wait, Homecoming isn't just like any other game. Isn't
it suppose to mean something more?
Granted, alumni should pay for their tickets to the game,
fair is fair, but isn't there a difference here. The Homecoming
King and Queen are representatives of the student body. Stu-
dents voted for them to have those positions. Therefore, the
king and queen deserved some respect and at least tickets to
the game, which the Athletic Department wants the student
body and alumni to support
Okay, the Homecoming game may not even be the largest
draw of the season and does not bring in the most money, but
it does mean something to the students who participate and
the alumni who travel back to Greenville to participate in the
activities, including the game. Surely, the cost of four football
tickets to one game, particularly one that is supposed to have
a special meaning, would not have brought the entire athletic
department to its knees.

For the Homecoming game, stu-
dents were not allowed to purchase
a half price guest ticket. I consider
homecoming to be a time for stu-
dents to go the game, support the
team, and celebrate the university
spirit, perhaps the athletic depart-
ment regards homecoming as a gim-
mick to reap higher profits at the
expense of the students and other
I have read pleas from the ath-
letic department for students to
come our and support the team
(most recently in the Oct. 17 issue
of TEC), many students like myself
attend al home games. We have ac-
cepted the new rules regarding: tail-
gating, only day games, and the
"special gates" provided just for our
entry into the stadium. How has the
athletic department reciprocated
support for the students? Is it by
giving us FREE tickets? If that is
so, I must remind the athletic de-
partment that every ECU student
has contributed money to their de-
partment through student fees.
More money is collected this way
than is given away in a few thou-
sand tickets.
I understand that the univer-
sity is a business and they need to
make a profit However, most busi-
nesses reward their customers for
their patronage. The athletic depart-
ment needs to understand that no
one has to attend the games. There
a plenty of other football games to
be seen on TV or just a short drive
If the athletic department does
not begin to appreciate their busi-
ness and attempt to keep its valued
customers they will never be able
to fill the stadium. The athletic de-
partment will lose this valued cus-
tomer if their apathy continues.

Allmans ink deal
Blues rock legends
to visit Minges
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
As most of the free world no
doubt knows by now, the Allman
Brothers Band is coming to ECU. But
for those few of you who haven't
heard, or don't even know who the
Allman Brothers are, here are the
On Nov. 10, the Allman Brothers
will perform in Williams Arena at
Minges Coliseum. Tickets went on sale
last Thursday, and at last report 60
percent of the seats were sold. This
show will be the first major concert
in the new Williams Arena; attempts
to book bands for last week's Home-
coming celebration met with failure.
According to ECU Director of
Student Activities Stephen Gray, the
contract for this event includes a 32-
page rider, and features some unusual
requirements, including smoking privi-
leges both on-stage and in the dress-
ing room for Allman lead guitarist
Dickey Betts. It's tiny details such as
this that delayed the signing of the
contract until the middle of last week.
The Allman Brothers themselves
are blues rock legends. Their record-
ing career began in 1969, with the
release of their self-titled debut album.
The Allmans have been touring and
recording ever since, except for a
break in the '80s that recharched their
creative batteries. And with veterans
Gregg Allman (the only actual Allman
left in the band) and guitar god Dickey
Betts at the heln, the Allman Broth-
ers Band shows no signs of succumb-
ing to age.
Opening for the Allman Brothers
Band at Williams Arena will be Gov-
ernment Mule, a side project of Allman
guitarist Warren Haynes. Government
Mule played to a large and enthusias-
tic crowd at the Attic earlier this year.
With 26 years and millions of fans
under their belts, the Allman Broth-
ers are a sure bet for ECU promoters,
who want the premiere concert at Wil-
liams to be an unqualified success.
Tickets are available from the ECU
Central Ticket Office. Tickets cost $15
for students; $19 for faculty, staff and
the general public; or $25 at the door.
All tickets will be general admission,
so show up early to get a good seat

Travolta dances to
the top in Get Shorty
Dale Williamson
Stuff Writer
No matter what you think of
Quentin Tarantino, you've got to
appreciate how he can bring back
the cinematic dead. Thanks to Pulp
Fiction, John Travolta is back. Now
that his new film Get Shorty is out,
Travolta has to prove that his
Tarantino fling was not a fluke and
that he is indeed an actor capable
of standing on his own. If Get
Shorty is an indication z to what
direction Travolta's career is
headed, this man is destined to stay
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld,
the man who reincarnated The
Addams Family, Get Shorty follows
the slick escapades of Chili Palmer
(Travolta). Chili is -a rather typical
Italian gangster, a wiseguy, who
does the dirty work for the guys
higher up the crime chain. What
makes Chili a little different, how-
ever, is the simple fact that he re-
airy likes movies (a scene depicting
Chili watching Orsen Welles' Touch
of Evil perfectly exemplifies this).
When Chili is asked to collect
on a few debts owed to his new
boss, "Bones" Barboni (wonderfully
played by Dennis Farina), Chili
finds himself in Los Angeles, the
home of movies. However, after track-
ing down indebted horror film pro-
ducer Harry Zimm (the always reliable
Gene Hackman), Chili changes his
plans. Instead of collecting from
Zimm, he wants to pitch a film idea,
one inspired from another debt owed
to Mr. Barboni. Zimm is intrigued, but
he has another script he wants to se-
cure the rights to first Unfortunately,
he needs half a million dollars to do
so. Chili offers his services and quickly
becomes a movie producer.
Wait! There's more. The plot also
involves a drug dealer (played by the
intense Delroy Lindo) who wants in
on this hot script; a Colombian drug
lord who wants to know where his
$500,000 and his missing nephew aie;
a romance between Chili and Karen
(the vibrant Rene Russo); and a
struggle to get the short but bank-
able actor Martin Weir (greasily played
by Danny DeVito) to sign onto Zimm's
If the plot sounds bloated and
confusing, don't worry. Scott Frank's
script, which is based on Elmore
Leonard's book Get Shorty, paces it-
self with the strut and style of a con-
fident dancer. The dialogue is filled
with witticisms and inside jokes
which naturally flow from the actors'
tongues. When Chili talks about what
type of actor he would be if he were
an actor, we hear Travolta knocking
on himself. It's a classic moment
for such a nostalgic cinematic fig-
Travolta has almost made a
career out of comebacks, but this
time he seems to have juicier
scripts to bite into. I know he has
done some unforgivable films and
delivered some unwatchable per-
formances, but if given the right
part the man is magic. While
Leonard envisioned an actor like
Robert DeNiro to play Chili,
Travolta puts such a slick spin on
the character that the part seems
custom-made for his cocky touch.
Travolta glides through the film
with majestic grace and captivates
the screen. He is simply wonder-
Some may gripe about the
complexities of the plot and the
subtleties of the jokes, but this
film is a laugh riot with intelli-
gence. I wouldn't call it high brow
humor, but it is several leaps
above Look Who's Talking.
With two more Travolta films
coming in the near future (includ-
ing an action film directed by John
Woo), 1 see the dancing king once
again sitting comfortably in his
cinematic throne. I can honestly
say with a gleeful smile, welcome
back, John. On a scale of one to
10, Get Shorty rates a nine.

The Beautiful South
Carry on Up the
Jay Myers
Staff Writer
The Beautiful South have yet to
find their niche in America, but in
England they're the tops. Apparently
their greatest hits collection, Carry
on Up the Charts, is one of the best-
selling albums of all time over there.
In fact, they're so popular that Van
Morrison and Sinead O'Connor
opened for them on their last con-
cert tour. So why haven't you ever
heard of them?
More than likely some of you
out there know who The Beautiful
South are, but the fact remains that
most of you don't. The reason be-
hind their lack of success over here
probably has to do with the fact that
they play sugary, breathy Manches-
ter pop songs. Although new bands
like Oasis and Blur have successfully
brought the Manchester sound to
US audiences, their music tends to
be faster and more guitar-driven
than the soft, lush arrangements of
The Beautiful South.
While the band was smart
enough to see that duets between a
man and a woman (here members
Paul Heaton and Jacqueline Abbott)
make for a stronger sense of vocal
romance, The Beautiful South's true
strength lies in their songwriting.

I've never heard of any-
one gaining someone's respect

or even business associate.

The Allman Brothers
Band is playing at Minges on
Nov. 10. That's no newsflash.
The Allman concert has been
red-hot gossip around cam-
pus for the last several
weeks. It's Tuesday; why
didn't The East Carolinian
run the Allman story last
Thursday when tickets went
on sale?
Surely the campus news-
paper would have been in-

concert in years with ample
time to prepare an appropri-
ate story. ECU student fees
funded the event, it's only fit-
ting that the students read
about it in the most timely
fashion from their own cam-
pus newspaper.
The truth is, there was
supposed to be an Allman
Brothers Band article in last
Thursday's East Carolinian.
But at press time Wednesday
evening, the Student Activities
office wouldn't confirm the
concert. Fine, they had a few
contract negotiations to ham-
mer out, we understand. They
did, however, confirm and re-

Caruso wasted
in cracked Jade
Ike Shibley
Senior Writer
The previews for the motion pic-
ture Jade promise a sensual, seduc-
tive thriller designed to keep viewers
on the edge of their seats. What Jade
delivers is one of the most unsatisfy-
ing, banal, big-budget disasters of the
Following Jade I spent as much
time complaining about the film as 1
did watching it. If ever a film needs to
be viewed in a film class for glaringly
obvious faults. Jade is that film.
If William Friedkin directs an-
other film in his already overly long
career, it will be too many. He has used
up what limited talent he had with
The Exorcist and The French Con-
nection. Those films were made over
20 years ago and Friedkin has noth-
ing to add to his resume, save one
exciting chase scene in To Live and
Die in L.A. Since Friedkin directed
the quintessential chase scene in The
French Connection, he has had his
own legacy with which to contend. In
To Live and Die in L.A, he pushed
the limits of a chase sequence by hav-
ing his protagonists drive at high
speeds down the wrong way on a Los
Angeles freeway. Though the latter
scene could not achieve the cinematic
artistry of the former chase it com-
pensated by providing a huge adrena-
line rush.
In Jade Friedkin again tries to
invent new ways to film a chase scene.
One chase involves the protagonist
speeding down a San Francisco hill
with no brakes and the other is a ge-
neric two car chase. Friedkin opts to
shoot over half the chase in close-ups.
I imagine Friedkin trying to placate
David Caruso by telling him that the
scenes would look great on film.
Caruso must have felt incredibly stu-
pid sitting in a still car while arching
his body from side to side and repeat-
edly grimacing. When Caruso saw the
final product I'm almost positive he
decided right then and there never to
work with Friedkin again.
The script of Jade deserves a
Golden Turkey Award for being the
worst of the year. Joe Eszterhas re-
portedly received 3 million dollars for
his Basic Instinct script, but after
Showgirls and Jade I am almost cer-
tain Mr. Eszterhas will not be seeing
that kind of money again anytime
Eszterhas writes with all the wit
and power of an eighth grader who
has been held back many times. His
eighth-grade ability is connected to a
perverted sexual promiscuity that he
feels necessary to display for the world
to see. Rather than invest any effort
into developing believable characters,
Eszterhas substitutes quirky sexual
habits for character development.
Whenever he gets writer's block,
Eszterhas inserts a sex scene, whether
or not that scene fits in the film.
Not only does Eszterhas enjoy
perverted sexual mores but he also
enjoys excessively convoluted plots
that make no sense. The burning ques-
tion in my mind at the end of Basic
Instinct was not "Who did it?" but
"Who cares?" Eszterhas throws so
many red herrings into his scripts that
no conclusive case can be made for a
killer. He enjoys confusing the viewer
so that he feels in control. Writing
scripts must be the ultimate power
trip for this hack. I honestly cannot
remember a script for which I have
had a more vile reaction than the one
for Jade.
The actors are all wasted. David
Caruso, who seemed promising in Kiss
of Death, looks bored. Chazz
Palminteri seems distracted; it's hard
to beiieve he was nominated for an

As could be expected. King Mis-

their way through "Sex With You"

good tunes, and I was glad to hear

spaced out through the show. I've
heard these songs a thousand times

And I got it. with tunes like "He-

finally collapsed into the fetal posi-

It was a fun show, and at least
a portion of the crowd seemed to
actually care about the music (a
Greenville rarity, as has been
pointed out in these pages before).

Dogbowl's set started, but the crowd
did thin out by the time King Mis-

Alumni, students and fans
watched ECU dominate the line of
$crimmage en route to a 32-22 Home-
coming victory over the Temple Owls
Saturday afternoon at Dowdy-Ficklen
Redshirt freshman fullback Scott
Harley, filling the void left by injured
Jerris McPhail, turned in a stellar per-
formance for the Pirates. The 5-foot-
10 210 pound Neptune NJ. native
rushed for 175 yards, breaking the
ECU single-game freshman rushing
The Pirates have been working
on their running game in practice the
past two weeks, and Harley knew he
would have to step up and carry the
"I was real intense the whole
week, sitting back waiting to see if
Jerris would be ready to play, but 1
felt good about my chance to play to-
day Harley said. "I'm a team player.
I'm just trying to do good for our team
and establish the run game we need
to have at East Carolina
If Harley was the star of the
game, then the offensive line was his

the entire contest
"The of-
fensive line
was coming off
of the ball real
well and every-
body was pick-
ing up their
blocks, giving
me creases to
get up field
Harley said.
In a
running at-
tack, the per-
formance of
the offensive
line is critical.
"The only
reason we
haven't run the football in the past
couple of games is little mistakes
said senior center Kevin Wiggins. "I
think it was all mental. The reps we
took in practice this week emphasized
our concentration, and that showed
a lot today. We had very few mistakes
In preparation for the large
Temple defensive front, the Pirates
went back to the basics.
"We went back to a lot of basic
fundamentals and techniques said
Ron Suddith, junior offensive tackle.
"Their defensive line was big, and
we just prepared to come off of the
ball hard and open up holes the best
we could
The ECU running game, taking
the heat off of the Pirate receivers,
opened up the passing attack.
"When we got into the game to-
day, we had the attitude that we
weren't going to lose this one said
sophomore flanker Jason Nichols. "We
executed and did what we had to do
Nichols had six receptions for 81
yards on Saturday, leading the Pirate
receiving corps.
ECU spread the football around,
utilizing eight different receivers.
"Today we executed the simple
things, and that ended up opening up
the more complex part of our offense
said junior tight end Scott Richards.
ECU wide receiver freshman Troy Smith, goes up for the ball against Temple's Lamond
Adams. Smith came down with the ball, but landed just outside of the endzone.

In past games, with the ECU run-

defensive players to shut down the
Pirate passing game, thus shutting
down the entire offense.

Crandell. "We caught them off guard

they were looking for the run
Crandell completed 21 of 44 pass
attempts for 275 yards, and threw no
interceptions against Temple.
ECU got on the board first with
a 28-yard Chad Holcomb field goal.
In the second quarter. Marcus
Crandell scored on a 7-yard TD run.
Holcomb booted another field goal,
this one for 29 yards, and the Pirates
went into the locker room at the in-

The Pirates answered a lot of
questions after Saturday's 32-22
Homecoming win against the Temple
Owls before a crowd of 31,225 at
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. There were
lingering doubts about the Pirate of-
fensive game after a dismal outing at
After an a much needed open
week to regroup and nurse nagging
injuries, the Bucs faced a problem that
many Pirate fans hoped they would
never have to deal with this season.
No Jerris McPhail. McPhail, the team's
leading rusher, gave the Pirate pass-
ing attack another dimension with his
experienced rushing and his ability to
catch the ball out of the backfield.
Does it sound like pretty big
shoes to fill? Well, redshirt freshman
Scott Harley from Neptune, NJ. got
the nod from Head Coach Steve
Logan and filled in, in a big way. The
shifty fullback seemed fairly comfort-
able with the starting role carry the
ball early on in the ball game.
Logan's use of more two back
formations featuring Harley, gave the
Pirate running a more established
look. It seems this move was needed
in order to jump start a streaky run-
ning game. Harley is a different style
of runner than McPhail, using stut-
ter steps and his wreckingball like
frame rather than pure speed, to
evade would-be tacklers. Harley kept
a consistent performance, ripping off
five to 10 yards a carry throughout
most of the ball game. This kept the
Temple defensive front led by top pro
prospect linebacker Lance Johnstone,
honest and in check while the offen-
sive unit took the field.
Of course, a runningback can't
be effective without blocking. The
Pirate offensive line seemed to come
out of the locker room with greater
confidence than the previous games,
and took control of the ball game cre-
ating gaping holes in a large Temple
defensive line. With the two back set
it enabled ECU to have a lead block
coming out of the backfield behind a
line that fired off the snap with domi-
nance. In games past it seemed that
the Pirates would take control of the
line of scrimmage early, only to give
it up in the second half. This was not
true on Saturday.
Speaking of blocking, the pass
protection was definitely more than
acceptable, giving quarterback Marcus
Crandell enough time to read the cov-
erage and hit the open receiver. Most

Volleyball team wins CAA battle
Misha Zonn
Staff Writer
The ECU volleyball team opened
up their Colonial Athletic Association
schedule with a 9-15, 15-12, 15-9, 15-
9 win over rival James Madison. The
win avenged an earlier loss to the
Dukes in the William & Mary Tour-
The Pirates were lead by junior
Carrie Brne who recorded 16 kills and
15 digs during the Friday night match.
Brne also led the team in kills (373)
and digs (541) last year.
"We started off slow tonight and
then gained the momentum and held
on Brne said. "The pressure was on
us because they had already beaten
us this year. We had good communi-
cation tonight and I think that is one
of the reasons why we won. I think
that we fit in somewhere in the top of
the league. We are a stronger team
than we were last year
The win ended a four game los-
ing streak and was the first game in a
crucial five game home stand. The
victory over JMU came only a few days
after a tough loss to N.C. State in
Raleigh. Even though the Pirates lost
to the Wolfpack 15-9, 154, 15-9 and
had a low .066 hitting percentage they
found some good things to build on
after the game.
Brne was the leader once again
in the State game with eight kills.
"The State game was really tough.
They were tall and strong at the net
but we played with them. I think that
level of competition prepared us bet-
ter for the JMU game
Senior Kristy Blair had a strong
game against JMU and believes that
ECU will be near the top in the CAA.
"The State game had a lot faster
tempo Blair said, it gave us a lot of
confidence to show that we could play
with them. I think that everyone in
the CAA is beatable. The only real
powerhouse is George Mason. We
should finish towards the top
In the JMU game, Kristen
Warner had 35 assists and senior cap-
tain Melanie Richards added 15 kills
and 13 digs. The win ups the Pirate's
overall record to 13-11 for the season.
The Pirates are on track for their first
winning season since 1989.
ECU returns to Minges tonight
at 7 p.m. to take on North Carolina
A&T before closing out the home
stand with games against William &
Mary. Virginia Commonwealth and

In one of the most exciting
matches in ECU soccer history, Meth-
odist College found a way to win, nip-
ping the Pirates 4-3 at the ECU soc-
cer complex.
Trailing twice in the game on
Thursday, ECU battled back to tie, but
a late goal by Methodist gave the
Monarchs the victory. It was the sixth
game this season that the Pirate
hooters have lost by only one point.
The Pirates were down 2-0 mid-
way through the first half, and almost
pulled off the upset against the No. 1
Division III team in the nation, a team
that is undefeated so far this season.
After tying the game at 2-2, and
later at 3-3, the Pirates allowed Meth-
odist to come back and reclaim the
advantage within a minute of each
tying goal.
"We played a heck of a game
Head Coach Will Wiberg said. "We
came back to tie it twice, but we have
to learn that when you battle that hard
to tie a game, you can't turn right
around and give it up right away
"We play real well when we're
down, we just have to learn that when
we get back in the game we have to
keep it up said senior forward Dusty
The ECU soccer team has been
known for its defense this year (ECU
has shut out their opponents in ev-
ery victory this season), but the Pi-
rate defense broke down against the

With Halloween right around the corner and
Thanksgiving only about one month away, one might
start to think about costumes, friends, family, a holi-
day break and food. The ECU Recreational Services
Department is concentrating on one food in particu-
lar- Turkey. It's time for the annual Turkey Trot Pre-
dicted Time Road Race.
This popular 2.2 to 2.5-mile road race will take
place on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 4 p.m. on the Bunting
Track. Participants will meet at the track which is
located beside the Frisbee disc golf course. The run-
ners will begin at the Bunting Track, continue around
to Greenville Boulevard, then run past the Intramu-
ral Fields and finish at the starting point. The race is
open to anyone who is an ECU student faculty or
staff member. You don't have to be an experienced
runner to come out and participate. Officials will take
away runners' watches while they run, so they can't
tell how fast they're running or what time they have
to beat so basically everybody has an opportunity to
win. Co-sponsoring the event this year with Recre-
ational Services includes The Bicycle Post and ECU
Dining Services.
Prizes for this exhilarating contest include such
items as T-shirts, pumpkin pies, turkey subs and even
whole turkeys. These and other exciting prizes will be
awarded to the first and second place in the Men's
and Women's Division, as well as the individuals in
both divisions, closest to their predicted time.
The Turkey Trot Road Race is also in the Frater-
nity, Sorority, and Residence Hall Point and Stamp
Systems respectively. Pre-registration will take place
up until Monday, Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. For more informa-
tion contact Melissa Dawson at 328-6387.

of Logan's weapons were utilized,
and that is how you run a ball-con-
trolled offense. With the exception
of a few fumbles and special team
miss-cues, the offense played a solid
two dimensional game for the first
time in weeks.
Good defensive teams, on the
other hand, keeps the offense on the
field. Defensive Coordinator Paul
Jette's Gold Rush troops did just that
as the defensive unit once again had
a stingy game. The defense Kept an
explosive Temple quarterback Henry
Burris in check for most of the ball
game, pitching a first half shut-out
and allowing the Owls' offense to
keep the ball just under 23 minutes.
This allowed Crandell to get settled
into an offensive groove.
Not only did Jette's head hunt-
ers keep the offense on the field, but
they also had six points of there own
by way of a Morris Foreman touch-
down off of a Temple turnover. De-
spite big plays from linebacker Morris
Foreman and both David and Daren
Hart, the Pirate secondary had their
share of troubles with Burris, allow-
ing the Owls to slip back into the
ball game. It seemed the Pirates were
loosening up and losing intensity
after taking a commanding lead.
If the Bucs want to come out of
their showdown at Southern Miss
with a win, they'll need to tighten
up. ECU must come out intense and
stay that way until the final horn if
they expect to beat the Golden Eagles
in their own nest.
Finally. 1 must give credit where
credit is due. First of all, Scott Harley,
along with the Pirate offense, looked
like the high-powered offense we're
used to in Greenville. Along with that
I would like to personally commend
those Purple and Gold bleeding fans
that stayed until the final second to
cheer on the Pirates. I'm glad that

isn't over until the scoreboard shows

The Pirates showed that they

however, in one of their most success-
ful offensive outings this season.
Dusty Belk, who leads the team in
scoring this year, scored first for the
Pirates off of a penalty kick with two
and a half minutes left in the first half.
