Committee follows
Rosenburg ruling
in allowing funds
Wendy Houston
Staff Writer
After approximately five weeks,
the decision to change the funding
guidelines for religious groups on
campus passed with the Student Gov-
ernment Association's (SGA) approval.
"It is in all fairness to approve
funding for all religious groups said
Johnathan Phillips, the Rules and Ju-
diciary Committee chair for (SGA).
The announcement was brief and
went over well with listeners during
the SGA meeting of Monday, Nov. 6.
"There is a total of seven com-
mittee members on the committee
that help with the decision-making
Phillips said in an interview after the
SGA meeting.
Also, three administrative offi-
cials were present throughout the
meetings: Betsy Bunning, head attor-
ney for all North Carolina Universi-
ties; Ben Irons, attorney for ECU and
Dr. Alfred Matthews, vice chancellor
for student life.
"We changed the policy because
it stated a question of separation be-
tween the church and state. But the
money SGA uses for funding is not
state funded money. It is raised and
distributed to the students by the stu-
dents Phillips said.
Phillips said he thought ECU was
the first university in North Carolina
to adopt the ruling that approves reli-
gious funding. He also said that other
schools should soon be following in
the refunding process.
The Rosenburg Act and a memo
received from Bunning were the only
material tools used. The committee
was completely in charge and on their
own with reaching their decision.
The Rosenburg Act was a case at
the University of Virginia in which a
religious group sought funding for
their newspaper Spread the Gospel.
Cadets sprint to honor
Holly Hagey
Staff Writer
In recognition of Veteran's Day,
the Amry ROTC will be hosting their
second annual Run For Honor. This
event is held by the cadet corps to
show honor and respect for local vet-
erans and to promote Veteran's Day.
The Run For Honor is a 36-mile
run Beginning off of First Street at
the Town Commons to Barnes El-
ementary School in Wilson, where
cadets will be shuttled to the Wilson
chapter Veterans of Foreign Wars
(VFW). This is the second year the
event has been held, and it is a means
of showing respect and gratitude to
local chapters of the VFW and Ameri-
can Legion and to other retired vet-
eran associations.
"We have a lot of veterans in the
(ROTC) program said Cadet Ellis
Baker. "This is our way of showing
them we stili think about them
Cadets volunteer for this event
and run three mile legs at a time as
they are followed by a convoy. Even
though cadets are not required to run
more than three miles, most cadets

"It was a lot of fun last year said
Cadet Scott Coffey. "We did it to show
respect for the veterans. 1 think it

as well as a good moral booster for

The Run For Honor will kick off
at 2:30 p.m. at the Town Commons
with guest speaker Lieutenant Colo-
nel DeVoe who will be delivering a
speech in recognition of Veteran's
Day. Mayor Nancy Jenkins will also
be at the Town Commons as a digni-
tary. The 36-mile run will begin at 3
Another activity the ROTC will
participate in over the weekend is the
presenting of colors at the local VFW
in Greenville on Saturday. The Ameri-
can flag and Pershing rifles will be
presented and a dinner will be held
There will also be a presentation
of colors at the football game on Sat-
urday and an air display of F-16 planes
flying over the stadium from Seymour
Johnson Air Force Base. There will
be many different military organiza-
tions on campus for both of these
events, which are being held as a pro-
motion of Veteran's Day.
Local veterans and any members
of the community are encouraged and
welcome to attend the events taking
place at the Town Commons on Fri-
day. Any veteran who is interested in
participating in the run is encouraged
to call the ROTC office at 328-6967

It was denied funding, so the group
sued under an argument for the free-

against the school, and in recognition

"Religious groups are funded and
go through the same process as any
other organization on campus, but we
cannot fund solely for religious pur-

to apply for funding of conventions,

Course gives
freshman aid
Holly Hagey
Staff Writer
Many transitions are necessary
in order to adjust to life at college,
not to mention the overwhelming
amount of concerns about what di-
rection your college career is
headed in.
This is especially true for first
year students, and to help with this
issue the Office of Undergraduate
Degrees is again offering a fresh-
man seminar course.
For the past eight years ECU
has offered a course involving ori-
entating students to campus and
helping them with direction and
guidance. Previously this course
has been known under a different
name, but for the following semes-
ter students can find this course
under Counselor and Adult Educa-
tion in the Spring registration
This course not only orientates
the student with campus and re-
sources available, it also explores
career choices, conducts student in-
terest inventories and acts as a
question and answer type class for
any concerns students hold about
the university.
Another benefit of this course
is that it helps walk students
through the registration process,
which can be a very confusing and
frustrating experience for students,
explains to them course choices
and requirements for graduation.
Six sections of the course will
be available next Spring due to the
addition of two new professors.
Laura Eakins and Michelle Wixon.
"I'm really excited because I
love students and helping to guide
them Eakins said. "The course is
designed to give new college stu-
dents confidence tc accomplish
their goals. We're trying to avoid
any discouragement during the first
year and help to keep them pumped
Class sizes are usually around
20 to 25 and demonstrate a more
personal environment where stu-
dents can get to know their class-
The class acts as a support
structure for students as well as of-
fers practical and hands on experi-
ence. It is a very interactive class
which helps students coming out

On Thursday of this week. Dr. Clifton Knight of ECU's Depart-
ment of Biology will be presenting an in-depth discussion of the politi-
cal and social implications of hog farm waste in the state.
According to Pi Sigma Alpha Vice President Keith Cooper, the
organization continually seeks speakers who will present issues that
are fundamental to the state and country.
"1 have been tracking newspaper and television reports on this
particular subject Cooper said. "I feel this is a good issue to explore
since this has become such a serious problem in our state
Cooper added that the issue of hog farm waste has been one sur-
rounded by much controversy in politics.

cently stormed the school's cashier's
office and demanded a refund of a
portion of their student fees.

dicated that students who did not
wish to allocate money toward the
school paper would be credited on
their next tuition bill.
One NIL' student, however, has
said he will pay for any fees the pa-
per may lose.
"I'd just really hate to see NIL'
without a newspaper Jon
Gilbertson said. "Even with all its
faults, it's better than nothing
Jones, who is a member of the
student government, and other stu-
dents said they are upset by the Star
4s editorial treatment of minorities.
"When the stories are about Af-
rican-American or other minority
students, the stories only focus on
one side of the issue Jones said.
"The reporters show a lack of sensi-
tivity when they write. The stories
don't reflect what really happens
Jones pointed to a recent flap
over the homecoming king and
queen as an example. "For years,
photos of the king and queen ran
on the front page Jones said. "But
for the past few years, when there's
been an African-American king and
queen, their pictures aren't even in

But most frustrating of all.
Jones said, is the lack of account-
ability from the paper's staff.
"There isn't anyone who's will-
ing to take final responsibility for
what gets printed Jones said.
But Lesley Rogers, the paper's
editor-in-chief, said the Xorthern

Rogers and her staff participated in
a forum to hear the concerns of stu-
dents, many of whom brought up
the homecoming photos. Ralph

told students that no photos were
taken of the king and queen because
of a shortage of photographers to
cover the event.
Argueta's answer did little to
satisfy junior Michelle Ivy. who ac-
cused Star staffers of racism.
"All I want is for nobody to put
me down Ivy said. 'Everyone has
their opinion. I'm entitled to my

"As a consumer. I'm not satisfied

At the forum, some NIL stu-

a sit-in if their concerns were not
addressed. Last Spring, student pro-

CPS - The U.S. House passed a
budget-cutting bill on Oct. 26 that
would eliminate the direct lending of
student loans and end the six-month
interest waiver for new graduates.
The House budget bill, aimed at
balancing the federal budget by 2002,
calls for the elimination of direct lend-
ing by June 30. 1996 and would im-
mediately begin phasing college from
the program. The direct lending pro-
gram, which began at the start of the
1994 school year and has been cham-
pioned by the Clinton administration,
allows students to borrow federal stu-
dent loan money directly through their
colleges, bypassing banks and lending
House Budget Committee Chair-
man John Kasich (R-Ohio) said the cuts
were not only necessary, but demanded
by voters in the last election.
"The people should understand
that in seven years, we will in fact bal-
ance the federal budget and save this
country and save the next genera-
tion Kasich said. "We've done our
Jeannette Galanis, president of
the United States Student Associa-
tion, disagrees.
"They've taken effective pro-
grams and cut them without any re-
gard for what the students want
Galanis said. "They are neglecting a
large group of voters, and it could
come back to haunt them
Direct lending is popular on many
campuses, where administrator say it
has cut down on paperwork and stu-
dents claim to receive loan money

University senior, said with direct lend-

"I expect Clinton to veto this
O'Conner said. "1 used to have night-
mares about getting my loans through
my bank. It took forever. The last think
1 want to do is go back to the old way
Clinton has already promised to
veto the House's budget-cutting bill.
Secretary of Education Richard
Riley said it would be a mistake to
eliminate the direct lending program.
"We knew when President
Clinton proposed this new loan op-
tion, it would be popular with students
and student aid administrators, and
it is Riley said. "It's simple, with less
paperwork. It improves cash flow by
offering quicker turn around time for
loan processing, and it improves ser-
vices to students
However. Mark Clayton, spokes-
person for the Coalition For Student
Loan Reform, an organization made
up of loan guarantee agencies, said
students who go back to borrowing
from guarantee agencies might be
surprised at the service.
"A lot of work has been done on
everyone's part to cut costs and to
help students out Clayton said. "Stu-
dents will find no differences in ser-
The House budget also includes
the elimination of the six-month in-
terest-waiver for new graduates and
an increase in the PLUS-loan interest
The Senate will vote on its ver-
sion of the budget soon. During the
week of October 23. the Senate voted
unanimously to do away with three
provisions that student lobbying
groups and college administrators had
harshly criticized. They include a tax
on colleges of 0.85 percent of their
loan volume, which many colleges
estimated would cost them nearly $1
million a year: the elimination of the
six-month waiver period during which
the government pays the interest on
the loans of new graduates and a jump
in the interest rate on PLUS loans.
Sen. Paul Simon (D-IU.). one of
the architects of the direct lending bill,
said he will try to reduce the $10.8
billion to S4.4 billion when the bud-
get comes up for approval on the Sen-
ate floor. "(Republicans) are taking
the choice away from colleges and
ending the competition that has ben-
efited students Simon said.
House and Senate ieaders will
meet to work out differences between
the two proposals, which are part of
a much larger bill to balance the fed-
eral budget and cut income taxes over
the next seven years.

the hog farm issue is of vast impor-
tance to our community.
"This topic touches on some-
thing that affects our area in many
ways Rajmaira said. "We feel that
anything that affects our community
affects the university as well
According to Rajmaira. Knight's
presentation is just one of the many
programs Pi Sigma Alpha has spon-
sored this year. Earlier in the semes-
ter, the organization sponsored a se-
ries of lectures and panel discussions
exploring such subjects as the de-
mocracy movement in Haiti, the role
of the CIA in a post-cold war nation
and various issues surrounding the
1996 presidential election.
"We try to present what we feel
is important to students Rajmaira
said, adding that most of the
organization's ideas for presentations
are the result of students' requests.
Conner hopes that his initiating
a piesentation about the issues of
hog farm waste will be helpful to oth-
ers at the university.

The theme was chosen because it
emphasized fun and enthusiasm.
Bartlett said a good leader must pos-
sess these qualities along with the
ability to be a serious and hard worker.
Students who attended the
conference discussed different pro-
grams and exchanged ideas. They also
took part in three special projects.
The first project delegates
participated in was called "Shirts Off
Your Backs Students were asked to
bring shirts stating their school logo
or shirts from previous SAACAURH
conferences. The shirts received were
donated to the Greenville Women's
"Cans for Life" was another
project at the conference. Students
were asked to donate canned food
which was then donated to Pitt
County AIDS Service Organization
The delegates did not forget
needy children. The third special
project they participated in was "Toys
for Tots Delegates brought toys in
good condition to the conference. The
toys were then given to the Marine
Corps, so they could hand them out
to underprivileged children.
The conference was not all

Our View
Kudos to
and staff
out to help
With such
great role
the Gen
should be
Too often, we stereotype faculty. As students, it's an
easy temptation to hate these people who teach us, grade
us and assign us wheelbarrows full of work. Sometimes,
they must seem like some kind of big-brained ogre-geeks,
unconcerned with the real problems of real people (like
the eternal ECU cycle of finding dates and purchasing beer).
People on the staff catch even more hell from students.
Unlike faculty, with whom we occasionally interact on some
human level, staff people are all about business. Every time
there's some problem with registration or financial aid,
they're the ones who have to deal with irate students who
could care less that the person in front of them had little
to do with the glitch. With all the red tape that gets strung
around a major university, it's easy to dehumanize staff
people, too.
That's why it's important to remember the rare occa-
sions when we get to see these people as more that just
cogs in the machine. Each year, ECU faculty and staff par-
ticipate in a state-wide charity drive called the State Em-
ployees Combined Campaign (SECC). The money raised by
SECC is distributed among any number of different chari-
ties chosen by the people who make the donations.
This year, ECU faculty and staff have raised over
$126,000 and hope to reach $150,000 before the money
stops trickling in. That's a whole lot of cash, folks, and it
can go to help a whole lot of people who have much worse
problems than the average ECU student. Does such a mas-
sive charitable deed sound like the action of people whose
business it is to give you a hard time? You're damn right it
The East Carolinian applauds ECU faculty and staff
for their efforts, this year and every year, to raise money
for charity. It's good work, and they deserve credit for it.
Credit, and maybe less of a hard time from students.
But maybe you remain unconvinced. Maybe you're one
of those more cold-hearted students out there, the ones
who have, perhaps, been treated more harshly by the sys-
tem than most. Maybe you have a harder time accepting
the good will and general humanity of the faculty and staff.
If you're one of these people, perhaps this will land
closer to your cold, hard heart. One of the incentives for
ECU employees to participate in SECC was the chance to
dress their managers up for Halloween however they
wanted. That's right, a few lucky employees got to pick out
costumes for the people hose job it is to give them a hard
If good deeds don't convince you of the humanity of
ECU faculty and staff, maybe that will. Nothing is more
human, after all, than revenge.
The uprising is now
My fellow college students, are

turn? I, for one, am, and it is time to
say something about it. When was
the last time you saw a rebate in
your tuition, or one year your rates

you don't see this, because the uni-

derful people who know the ins and
outs of red-tape, would find that too
It upsets me, as an out-of-state
student, that for all the money I
spend on an education here, I get
jack. The university does not appre-
ciate me as a student, they appreci-
ate me for my financial contribu-
tions to their pockets and all their
expansions that we as students had
no say in.
Why should the administration
decide to raise our tuition and stu-
dent fees so that different programs
can be implemented or different stu-
dent organizations can have more
money? Why can't we be able to vote
on them? Because in an obscure
way, we, the SGA, did. Those people
who we thought would be on our
side, ended up thinking of their own
personal agendas and financial fu-

I have been here for four years
now, and I plan on going into the
education field, because I want to
be able to influence young minds
and give a part of myself. I often
think that the teachers here, how-
ever, find that their teaching is just
a job and nothing more. The teach-

formative job there is. With this po-
sition, you can positively or nega-
tively influence the future of this
Unfortunately, I do not feel that
the teachers here feel the same way.

they do not care about the quality of

fully understand something, you
must first define the issue. The defi-
nition of pick is to strike with some-
thing pointed or to select. Up is de-
lined as aloft, high or as a prefix to
imply raising or improving. A line is
the shortest distance between two
points. This being the case we have
two choices as long as we are talk-

In layman's terms, a pick-up line
is a lyrical gimmick used to gain the
attention of another person in hopes
of gaining a conversation (or more)

how ambitious you are.

Senior Writer
Mozart's comedic opca "The
Marriage of Figaro" is coming to ECU
thanks to the vision of Western Op-
era Theater.
What is Western Opera Theater
(WOT)? WOT is a group of young art-
ists who, since 1967, have been per-
forming some of the world's great-
; est operas, first around the West but
eventually throughout the entire
United States and around the world.
It was created to give these young
performers the opportunity to be fea-
tured in leading and supporting roles
in touring operas. In 1994, WOT be-
gan using supertitles (English trans-
lations projected above the stage) in
their productions. They have toured
Japan and Micronesia, and were the
first professional opera company to
tour the People's Republic of China.
WOT was the recipient of the
first endowment grant from the Na-
tional Endowment for the Arts in
1967. Since then, it has been per-
forming across the US to sold-out au-
diences. Despite its growing success,
WOT has not changed its values, and
the company continues to remember
the reasons it was founded.
"WOT's original mission has re-
mained the same: to present quality
live opera performances to audiences
who might not otherwise have this
extraordinary opportunity. WOT's
purpose of providing invaluable per-
formance and training experience for
singers, music staff, technicians and
orchestra musicians has never wa-
vered wrote Lotfi Mansouri, general
director of San Francisco Opera, par-
ent to Western Opera Theater.
This year, for the first time ever,
WOT has expanded its auditions to
include international performers. Art-
ists were chosen from over 600 ap-
plicants, some of whom came to the
auditions from as far away as Seoul,
Hong Kong and Shanghai.
"The Marriage of Figaro" has
been called one of Mozart's best op-
eratic comedies. It is the story of
Figaro, valet to Count Almaviva, and
his upcoming marriage to Susanna,
maid to Countess Almaviva. However,
the count wishes to have Susanna for
his own, much to the dismay of his
wife. And as if that weren't enough,
Mozart added an aging housekeeper
who wants to marry Figaro and a
young page, Cherubino, who is after
any and every female he sees. The
resulting love hexagon can only lead
to one thing: uproarious laughter
from the audience!
WOT's performance of "The
Marriage of Figaro" is directed by
Christopher Hahn, staged by Peter
McClintock and conducted by
Rodolfo Fischer. It is sponsored by
the S. Rudolph Alexander Perform-
ing Arts Series, and will be per-
formed at ECU tomorrow at 8 p.m.
in Wright Auditorium. Tickets are
$25 for the general public, $20 for
ECU faculty and staff and $12 for
ECU students and youth. Croup
rates are available. For more infor-
mation, contact the Central Ticket
Office at 328-4788.

Powder crackles with

Staff Writer
Stories centering around extraor-
dinary individuals who don't fit into
mainstream society are not unfamiliar
territory. We've witnessed examples in
films such as Mask, Edward
Scissorhands and (to a certain extent)
E.T. The basic premise of these stories
is the same: an outcast misfit enters
the confining gates of society and re-
veals how special life really is. Of
course, this misfit has to suffer from
those who are afraid of anything or
anyone who is different
Well, if the formula works, then

Just when you think it's safe to hate Billy Corgan,
he and his crew release something like Mellon Collie.
When The Pumpkins' first album, Gish, came out in
1991. Corgan had yet to build up his media personality
as a popalternative(insert label here) prima donna.
He and the rest of the band (which includes James lha
on guitar, D'Arcy on bass, and Jimmy Chamberlain on
drums) just played damn fine music back then, music
that ranged from hard-edged rock to sensitive balladry.
Then they released their second album, Siamese
Dream. Again, the Pumpkins' skill at crafting songs was
proven to be as good as ever. But arrogance reared its
ugly head in Corgan when he became the video darling
of MTV. When Kurt Cobain died and Nirvana couldn't
be the headliner at that summer's Lollapalooza, the
Pumpkins were chosen as the replacement. Over the
course of that summer Corgan became an out and out

that many of his former fans had
trouble disconnecting his music
from his overwhelming personality.
I was one of those fans. Corgan
became so nauseating in public that
it was hard to listen to his music.
Siamese Dream sat on the CD rack
gathering dust, unheard for
Therefore, the release of
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sad-
ness was met with much skepticism.
Of course, the rest of the Pumpkins
were assumed to be as good as ever,
but would Corgan be able to genu-
inely express himself anymore? Or
would he let his pretentiousness
take over his creativity?
Well, I'm here to say that
Mellon Collie is a brilliant success.
It takes a certain confidence in
one's abilities to release a double
album. Perhaps Corgan's apparent
aloofness has also given him the
self-confidence to appioach such a

massive undertaking as the 28
songs found here. Of the many
double albums other bands have
made, Mellon Collie is leagues
above Guns N' Roses' Use Your Il-
lusion I & II, not quite as good as
the Beatles' White Album, and just
about as good as Led Zeppelin's
Physical Grafitti.
The title track that opens this
double album is an interesting pi-
ano instrumental that sounds al-
most classical. From there the al-
bum combines ali the range pro-
duced on other Pumpkins albums.
There are punchy rock anthems
("Where Boys Fear to Tread"), soul-
ful ballads ("Take Me Down"), and
heavy pop tunes ("Beautiful"). It's
easy to guess which songs will be
the hits: "Bullet With Butterfly
Wings" (a coarse rocker that is, of
course, already a hit), "Love" (a dis-
torted Corgan over a harsh rhyth-
mic background that sounds like a
battlefield), and "Bodies" (the
power pop number with the won-
derful chorus, "love is suicide").
Finally the album closes with a
sweet lullaby, "Farewell and

If there are any drawbacks to
this album, it's where the band be-
comes derivative, as in "Here is No
Why" where they sound like Stone
Temple Pilots, or where Corgan
uses his normally soft, melodic
voice to scream lyrics, like the
tracks "Tales of a Scorched Earth"
and "X.Y.U both of which sound
like bad Nine Inch Nails rip-offs.
Despite these small drawbacks,
my faith in The Smashing Pump-
kins as a whole has been restored.
In fact, Mellon Collie and the Infi-
nite Sadness is such a refresher
that Gish and Siamese Dream have
been in constant rotation with it on
the CD player. Corgan may be a
jerk, but The Smashing Pumpkins
are true artists. Perhaps you can
enjoy this album a little longer if
you don't watch MTV for the next

There are plenty of people who
feel that marijuana should be legal-

either don't think their voice makes
a difference, fear being negatively la-

Some of the HEMPilation lyr-

the music.

The East Carolinian
BATMAN from page 7
Bruce Timm. who have designed the
show as an homage to the Fleisher Su-
perman cartoons. Their Gotham City is
a gothic art deco nightmare, bustling
with menace that only heroes like
Batman and his sidekick Robin could
hope to combat.
How's this for dark: one eerie epi-
sode features an insane former child
star, a little "Leave It to Beaver" kind of
girl who. due to a physical abnormality,
has remained trapped in her child body
for the past 20 years. As revenge, she
kidnaps her ex-cast members and forces
them to take part in an unsettling "fi-
nal show complete with an empty
laugh track punctuating her every sen-
tence. When Batman confronts her, she
threatens him with a machine gun hid-
den in her toy doll, bullets blazing out
of the doll's left eye.
Is this show appropriate for chil-
dren? Well, unlike the movie "Batman
Dini and Timm's animated Caped Cru-
sader doesn't kill anybody. Ever. And
what audience were the "Batman" films
aimed at?
Despite the constant debate be-
tween Fox TV executives, critics and pa-
rental interest groups on the show's
mature themes, there is one point all
agree on. including me. "The Adventures
of Batman & Robin" is a great show.
Perhaps the best way to show the high
quality of "Batman & Robin" is to com-
pare it with the movies, particularly the
last film, "Batman Forever
Two-Face is a recurring villain in
the animated series, but unlike the char-
acter played by Tommy Lee Jones, this
criminal is an intelligent menace, not a
gun-toting buffoon. The friendship be-
tween Harvey "Two-Face" Dent and
Bruce Wayne is explored on the series,
making Harvey's plunges into madness
all the more heartbreaking.
And what about Robin? The series
has managed to capture with one or two
lines both the friendship and animosity
that exists between Robin and the Dark
Knight. That and, wow, Robin gets to
actually do something in the series in-
stead becoming a victim of the bad guys!
What a concept! Other famous villains
are present on the show: the Joker, the
Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, and
teeming scores of others. All of whom
are better-realized characters than the
films featuring human actors.
And what about the actors? The
voice actors for "Batman & Robin" are
top of the line. Most are already estab-
lished stars, and more stars want to lend
their voices to "Batman" characters.
Kevin Conroy. whose baritone voice
gives Batman personality, was a regu-
lar on "Tour of Duty among other
shows. Guest voices from Tim Curry to
Mark Hamill to Melissa Gilbert have
given "Batman" characters personality.
The only thing that might put off
a few viewers might be the animation
style. The artwork on "Batman &
Robin" is realistic, yet stylized, and very
much with an art deco feel. When
Batman or Robin swings at a crook, it
is very possible that either's arm may
curve abnormally, giving more of an
impression of quick movement than of
anatomical correctness.
Trust me. though. If you read
"Batman" comics as a kid (or as an
adult), the look of the show is like a
breath of minty-fresh air. If you've never
read a "Batman" comic, well, get off your
butt and get one. Or watch this show,
because in reality, it's also better than
any of the "Batman" comics on the
market today.
As your "TV Whore it has become
my job to examine with a critical eye all
television that crosses my path: the
good, the bad, and the ugly. Mostly the
bad and ugly. What is so rare about a
show like "The Adventures of Batman
& Robin" is that it is so very good. The
cartoon successfully marries "Batman"
creator Bob Kane's visions with those
of Tim Burton. Dini and Timm - visions
of rain-drenched streets seething with
tension, dark corners and even darker
hearts. All under the watchful eye and
protection of Batman and Robin.
On a scale of one to 10, "The Ad-
ventures of Batman and Robin" rates a
respectful 10.
POWDER from page 7
no real desire to be part of it.
The bulk of the story deals with
the difficulties of fitting in and has typi-
cal subplots, such as potential love be-
tween a "normal" girl and the misfit
However, directorscreenwriter Victor
Salva effectively strikes at the emotional
strings by allowing certain characters
to be more than cardboard cut-outs. A
scene where Powder lets Henrikson
communicate telepathically with his
dying wife choked up my otherwise stiff
self. This is a wonderful moment where
Henrikson flexes his acting muscles.
While some scenes are done way
over the top (a scene where Powder is
struck by electricity in Jeff Goldblum's
science class comes to mind), other
scenes are exceptionally subtle. After

bully. Powder is forced to use his elec-
trical powers to bring him back from
the dead. When the bully is revived, he
and Powder share a silent stare which
can be interpreted in more than one
way. Such subtleties pull the film back
from the melodramatics it occasionally
slips into.
Another interesting element of the
film is the simple fact that this misfit
as opposed to misfits like Eric Stoltz or
E.T is potentially dangerous. Powder
not only has superior intelligence, but
he also has superior power. When Pow-
der gets angry, his energy can cause
windows to shatter and light bulbs to
burst While the establishment wants
to try to control Powder so they can
learn from him. the establishment also
fears that he may be a force they can-
not control without totally destroying
Taking off his fedora to reveal a
bald head, Flanery fills the title charac-
ter with the magic necessary to create
a sense of awe. At the same time, he
also maintains a human dimension.
Powder is a cross between a scared child
who wants only to hide in his self-made
womb, a curious teenager who desires
to experience the world, and an angry
adult who will not allow himself to be
Also, the fact that Flanery looks
great on film is an added benefit. Only
an actor with Flanery's presence could
make a deathly white, frail-looking, bald
misfit so physically attractive.
While there are many aspects of
Powder that make this film worth view-
ing, it still is not by any means a great
film. Some may grow tired of the film's
somewhat lethargic pacing, and the
more melodramatic moments border on
being silly. However, if you're in the
mood for a weekend matinee, or if you're
looking for a flick that you can take a
date to. then Powder has the power
you're looking for. On a scale of one to

Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
It's that time of year again. Cold
weather and the start of basketball.
What could be better?
On Monday, the men's basketball
Head Coach Joe Dooley and women's
Head Coach Anne Donovan held
press conferences to discuss this sea-
son in Pirate basketball. Both Dooley
and Donovan are beginning their first
head coaching positions at ECU.
Dooley had spent the last four years
as assistant coach for the Pirates, and
Donovan comes from ODU, where
she served as an assistant coach since
Donovan sees a lot of promise
in her players. The Hall of Fame in-
ductee realizes with a new coach the
players were going to have to make
adjustments. She believes her play-
ers are doing just that.
"We're starting to make advance-
ments and the kids are starting to
pick up the system really well said

players will follow throughout the

6-2. In a league where some players
are as tall as 6-6, the Lady Pirates
will depend on their speed and agil-
ity to compensate for their size.
The Lady Pirates will be led by
Tomekia "Fruiky" Blackmon, who
averaged 16.1 points per game last
season. A 1994 Second Team AU-CAA
choice, Blackmon will return after
missing eight games in the '95 sea-
son due to an injured knee, in which
she tore her ACL. But don't be fooled,
a bum knee didn't stop her from scor-
ing in double figures in 15 of her 19
games after surgery, and she looks
to come back even stronger this year.
This senior forward will play a
major role this season not only as a
player but as a team leader.

when things aren't going well in prac-
tice said Blackmon. "Talking to ev-
erybody, making sure everyone's talk-

Another Lady Pirate to watch
will be senior guard Danielle
Charlesworth. She returns after lead-
ing the team for the second consecu-
tive year in assists and free throw
shooting. Charlesworth has ranked
as ECU's second leading scorer for
the past two seasons. During the '94
season she averaged 10.5 points per
With a new head coach there are
bound to be changes, but
Charlesworth noticed the biggest
change has been on defense.

A member of the Pirate diving team prepares to hit the
water. The divers placed high in their first conference
meet of the season against Old Dominion last Saturday.
SID-ECU (19-15, 4-1 CAA) ensured themselves of their first winning
season since 1989 with a straight games (15-5,15-13, 15-9) victory over the
UNC-Wilmington Seahawks Tuesday evening in Wilmington. The Pirate vic-
tory halted a UNCW five-game winning streak.
Junior outside hitter Carrie Brne, led the Pirates with 15 kills, while
senior team captain Melanie Richards added a team-high 15 digs. As a squad,
ECU totaled a .290 attack percentage, and made just six hitting errors in
110 attempts.
UNCW's Josie Youngblood, the CAA Player of the Week, led her squad
with 19 kills in the loss.
ECU finishes out the regular season with away matches against Ameri-
can University and George Mason University on Friday and Saturday evening,
an will compete in the CAA Tournament on Nov. 17-18.

end Brent Jones played against the
Panthers, even though he had
sprained a knee the week before and
doctors told him he would be sidelined
for up to six weeks.

Should the original prognosis
hold up. Moore wouldn't be back in
the lineup until the season finale
Christmas Eve in Washington. That
obviously would kill any chance of him
rushing for 1.000 yards, and it would
severely limit his opportunity to break
the expansion rushing record of 722
yards, held by Ken Coffey of the 1966
Atlanta Falcons.

SEASON from page 11
and fastbreaks
The Lady Pirates did not lose
any players from the starting line-up
from last year. The probable starting
line-up will be forward Shay Hayes,
who will be a threat down low, for-
ward Tracey Kelley, last's seasons
third leading scorer, guard Justine
Allpress who averaged 7.3 points per
game last year, along with Blackmon
and Charlesworth.
Because this will be the first
game for the Lady Pirate's, the play-
ers as well as Donovan are ready to
get started.
"We are excited to get started
this Saturday added Donovan.
Unlike the women's team, the
men have alreaJv played their first
exhibition game. Dooley. who at 29
years of age is the youngest head
coach in Division I, saw his players
top AIA 92-81 for the victory last
Thursday and Dooley liked a lot of
what he saw.
"We put up on the board that
we wanted three "e's said Dooley.
"Effort, enthusiasm and execution
He got his three "e's" from play-
ers who played aggressively and ex-
ecuted the plays given.
Sophomore Tony Parham re-
turns as a starting guard and will be
a key threat in the perimeter game.
This 1995 CAA All-Rookie squad
member will have an important role
in leadership responsibilities.
Parham, who believes he led by ex-
ample last year, realizes he has to
vocally lead the team and give the
team pep talks.
"I consider myself a team leader,
but I'm not as vocal as they would
like me to be says Parham.
Junior center, Jonathan Kerner.
brings height and mobility to his po-
sition. As the Pirates big man at 6-
11, he will play a major role getting
points inside the paint and pulling
down rebounds. This is Kerner's first
season playing ECU basketball. He
sat out last season after transferring
from Florida State University, where
he played two seasons. Because
Kerner has played at another school
he has seen a different style of play-
ing and coaching.
"Coaches here care a lot more
about the players progressing and
maturing as individuals as well as ball
players said Kerner.
Other players to watch out for
this year will be Tim Basham, the Pi-
rates leading returning scorer, and
Othello Meadows, who led all scorers
against AIA with 23 points.
Each coach will have a quality
coaching staff backing them. The as-
sistant coaches for the men's team
include Lew Hill, Martin McGillan and
Lane Odom. The women's team will
be assisted by Ginny Doyle. Charisse
Mapp and Gaynor O'Donnell.
The men's and women's teams
will face off against Latvia of Russia,
in a doubleheader this Saturday. The
men begin at 6 p.m and the women
follow at 8 p.m.

the graduates.
Mark Hessert, Associate Direc-
tor for the Pirate Club, believes the
SPC is a good way for students to
get closer to the athletic program.
Although there are only about 50
members at this time, Hessert feels
if students were more aware of the
SPC and its activities, more people
would be inclined to join.
"If they get involved on the in-
side they'll get more pumped up and
wonder why more students haven't
joined said Hessert.
Anybody who attended the
men's basketball games 'ast year
probably noticed a certain group of
students standing and cheering on
the Pirates. Those loyal fans call
themselves "Minges Maniacs Duke
has their "Cameron Crazies" and we
have our "Minges Maniacs They
often led the crowd in chants, and
many times got people to their feet
to show support last year. Most of
those students are members of the
Chris Murphy, who is doing an
internship with the Pirate Club, be-
lieves that during this basketball
season the other students will see
the "Minges Maniacs" and how
much fun they have, and hopefully
they will inquire and be interested
in a membership.
"I think a lot of people will be
interested in joining once basketball
gets started said Murphy.
Hessert says he wants the SPC
to get more involved in other sports
besides the two big sports, football
and men's basketball. He would like
to see more support for other ath-
letic events such as women's basket-
ball, volleyball or cross-country.
Hessert wants the othc athletic pro-
grams to feel like they a supported
and that the students are backing
the athletes in all sports.
Some students might hesitate
to join because of the $25 fee.
Hessert understands that hesitation
because he realizes most college stu-
dents don't have a lot of money to
spend. Throughout the year, the fee
helps go towards SPC socials. These
socials allow members to relax in the
comfort of the Pirate Club Building
and gives them a chance to meet
new members. During these meet-
ings snacks and refreshments are
served. Guest speakers are also a
treat at these meetings. The first
SPC meeting held for this academic
year, featured the men's basketball
coach Joe Dooley who came out and
talked a little one-on-one basketball
with the members. It gave everyone
a chance to ask questions they might
not otherwise get a chance to ask.
Investing in the SPC doesn't
stop with graduation. Each year a
person is a member they rack up
points that will go towards the lev-
els after SPC.
"We want to keep people in-
volved, because the more they're in-
volved the longer they're going to
stay (in the Pirate club) added
Any student who is a fan of the
Pirates should consider becoming a
member. It's a great way to support
ECU athletics and a chance to meet
many of our prominent coaches. The
SPC is open to all students. For
more information, contact Assistant
Director Matt Maloney at 328-4532.

ECU looking to finish strong at home
Tulsa is the next
obstacle for bowl
hungry Pirates
Brian Paiz
End Zone Editor
After assuring itself of a second
straight winning season with a victory
against Army last weekend, ECU contin-
ues its "March towards Memphis" this Sat-
urday as they face the Golden Hurricane
of Tulsa.
Tulsa comes into the game with a 4-
5 record, which includes last week's .ess
at Brigham Young . ECU HeadCoach Steve
Logan knows how pivotal this game is for
his Pirates.
"We've got a good football team in
Tulsa University coming in here that has
played good football all year long" said
The Golden Hurricane, coached by
Dave Rader, are led by 6-foot-l,215 pound
quarterback Troy Degar. The junior slinger
has passed for 1,160 yards and six touch-
downs this season, after being lost for
last season with a knee injury. He has
completed 51 percent of his passes and
is third on Tulsa's squad in rushing, as
he has 233 yards on 99 carries and six
touchdowns. Degar is following such great

Tulsa Quarterbacks as T.J. Rubley and Gus
Frerotte, who are both in the NFL.
Leading the Golden Hurricane run-
ning attack is junior Solomon White. Last
week against BYU, White had 90 yards
on 17 carries and two touchdowns. White
entered the year as a Doak Walker candi-
date for the nations best running back,
but he suffered a pulled hamstring early
in the season that slowed him down. White
had 146 yards and two touchdowns
against the Pirates last season.
Michael Kedzior leads Tulsa's receiv-
ing corps. The senior has had two 100-
plus receiving games in Tulsa's first five
contests. He ranks seventh on Tulsa's all-
time receiving chart behind such names
as Steve Largent and Chris Penn, who Pi-
rate fans should remember well from his
performance in Greenville in 1993.
Kedizor has 38 catches for 517 yards and
three touchdowns in '95.
On the defensive side of the ball for
Tulsa, senior defensive end Sedric Clark
and junior middle linebacker Muadianvita
Kazadi lead the way. Clark is looking to
establish career records for quarterback
sacks this season, and so far he is well
on his way as he has seven sacks on the
year. He also ranks in a tie for third on
the team with 52 tackles. Kazadi leads
the team in tackles with 78. Against
Baylor earlier in the season, Kazadi had
19 tackles, including 11 solos.
Pirate quarterback Marcus Crandell
will have to keep his eye on safety Jer-
emy Bunch. The 6-foot, 200 pound jun-
ior ranks third in the nation with six in-
terceptions. Bunch also has 75 tackles,
including 50 solos and six pass deflec-
On special teams for the Golden Hur-
ricane look out for sophomore Jason
Jacoby. In the last two
seasons, Jacoby has had
two 100 yard kickoff
returns, including one
last week against BYU.
This season, Jacoby is
averaging 25 yards per
kickoff return.
The Pirates have
their final two games at
home for the first time
in a long while. ECU is
6-3 and leads the Lib-
erty Bowl Alliance, wins
over Tulsa this week,
and Memphis next
week, would send the
Pirates back to the Lib-
erty Bowl for the sec-
ond straight year.
ECU seemed to
find its offense in last
week's victory over
Army, and Crandell and
his receiving corps
looks like they are on
the same page of the
playbook for the first time in a while. Jems
McPhail has come on strong in the last
two weeks, after suffering an injury
against Cincinnati, and Jason Nichols and
Mitchell Galloway have had solid perfor-
mances at receiver.
On defense, the Pirates are continu-
ing their strong play, led by Morris Fore-
man, who had probably the best game of
his career last week against Army. Mark
Libiano leads the Pirates in tackles with
102 on the season.
If the Pirates can get a lead early,
they should be able to send the Golden
Hurricane back to Tulsa with a loss.

West a proven leader on Pirate defense
Lorenzo West
Defensive tackle
took a rocky road in
becoming a Pirate
Craig Perrott
End Zone Writer
ECU defensive tackle Lorenzo West
is one of the most emotional players
on the Pirate football team. Off the
field, West considers himself to be a
quiet person who keeps to himself, but
don't tell his competitors that. He says
he's easy to get along with as long as
you don't cross a certain line. The Pi-
rates' foes must have crossed that line
this season, as West has terrorized the
opposing team's backfield in every game
this year.
West was born and raised in At-
lanta, Ga and was raised by his mother
after his father died when he was eight
years old. His dream as a child was to
make his mom happy.
"If there's one person I play for,
it's my mom West said.
The 6-3, 238 pound junior was re-
cruited by such institutions as Georgia
Tech, Clemson, South Carolina, UNC,
Mississippi State and Miami. West origi-
nally intended to attend Georgia Tech,
but an off the field incident changed
his mind.
"On the Friday before the Sunday
that I was supposed to report for foot-
ball practice, I went out with my friends
for a little going away party West tells.
"Another car pulled up beside me, I
looked to the left and a pistol was
pointed at my head. The guy could have
killed me, but he shot my car about five
times instead. It was at that point I knew
I didn't want to stay in the city around
these same people doing the same
West headed for the more subdued
Greenville area, and has been an im-
pact player on the Pirate football team
ever since. West says he has consistently
played well this season, and believes
that the team is improving from week
to week.
"We struggled a little bit at the be-
ginning of the season. In the Temple
game we got closer to were we needed
to be, and in the Southern Miss game,
we put it all together he said.
The Pirates have achieved one of
their preseason goals of having a win-
ning season this year, and West says
that the team has been motivated to ac-
complish this goal from the beginning.
"It started this summer, when all
the guys decided that we were commit-
ted to winning. We decided to go out
and execute on Saturday at a level we
know we can perform
West also had some doubts coming
into the season about certain defensive
positions, but the move of Travis Darden
to nose guard and the return of line-
backer Aaron Black rekindled his confi-
dence in the Pirate "D
Next year the defensive unit will

Kevin Wiggins
The senior center

Dill Dillard
End Zone Writer
An everyday grenade is approxi-
mately the size of an ordinary baseball,
but that same grenade has the ability
to blow a gaping hole in a brick wall.
That's probably the best analogy you
could use to describe senior center
Kevin Wiggins.
Standing only at 6-foot2 and weigh-
ing in at a light 264 pounds, most would
look at his dimensions and ask if he's a
"big" tight end. Despite his smaller stat-
ure and being one of the smallest start-
ing centers in division one football,
Wiggins has been considered to be a
cornerstone in the Pirate offensive line.
Along with being one of the quickest
offensive linemen on the team it has
given Wiggins the opportunity to be
more versatile in Logan's offensive set
seeing snaps as a guard, center, tight
end and even a fullback in a few situa-
Wiggins has often been described
as a leader and one of the hardest work-
ers on the team. The stout trench man
has definitely earned his label coming
to ECU as a walk-on and earning a Schol-
arship as well as a leadership role on
the offensive line.
"Well in high school different
schools like Georgia Tech , Duke, ECU
sent letters, but mostly the smaller
schools like Chowan and Wingate sent
me stuff said Wiggins.
Coming out of Pink Hill, N.C. and
South Lenoir High School, Wiggins could
be described as talented, but slightly
"For a while I thought I was going
to N.C. State the way they were recruit-
ing me, but right at the end they told
me that I was too small and that I could
try and walk on. I didn't appreciate that
too much. After what they did I decided
that there was no way I was walking on
there Wiggins added.
Despite a few broken promises
made by State, Wiggins' hopes of play-
ing division one college football were
not broken. After considering the loca-
tion of the school, Wiggins decided to
take his talents to near by ECU.
"Growing up so close to Greenville,
I have always liked ECU football he
said. Plus I had a brother that was here
and I wanted to be close to home so it
would be easy for my family to come
see me play,
Now many are not aware that
Wiggins' first year as a Pirate was 1991,
the year that ECU went 11-1 and capped
the season with a victory over N.C. State
in the Peach Bowl. Wiggins played a
small role that year on the ninth ranked
Pirates of '91, being red-shirted and
playing center on the practice squad.
"When I was a freshman, it was
Okay. It was fun, we were winning , and
we finished 11-1, but! wasn't playing
said Wiggins.
After the Peach Bowl was over and
the echoes of the cheering crowd in At-
lanta had died, Wiggins faced yet an-
other hardship.
"My freshman year, I had mono

weight I worked hard to get over the

but discouraged. After long days in the
gym in the off season, his hard work
finally paid off dividends as Wiggins
went on to play three games in the '92
season and played a starting role in the
past three seasons. From a walk on to
the anchor man of the offensive line,
Wiggins has been a vital cog in the ECU
machine that has propelled itself to one
Liberty Bowl appearance and possibly
a second at the end of this season.
"The past three seasons, including
this one has been different from the '91
season said Wiggins. "I look at the
Liberty Bowl season last year and the
opportunity to return to Memphis this
year and it's more meaningful, because

Many people might argue that a
punter does not have much impact on
a team. But don't tell that to Matt
Levine, ECU'S starting punter for
the second consecutive year, is coming
off an impressive season in '94. He av-
eraged 42.6 yards per punt last season,
and finished the year ranked 15th in
punting average in the final NCAA
This season he is only averaging
35.5 yards per punt but contributes his
lower numbers to the offense moving
the ball down the field,
so he doesn't have to
punt as far. But he still
isn't too pleased with
his performance.
"I think it has been
a disappointing year
for myself said
Levine. "To average six
or seven yards a kick
less than last year, I
pretty much think it is
inexcusable mmmmmmmmrm
Levine did explode
for his longest punt of the year against
Temple. He booted one 58 yards his best
yet on the year, however he has had
two other punts to go 50 yds. He has
punted 16-50 inside the 20 yard line.
Levine has racked up a total of 1776
yards for the year.
Last year he was a member of the
second All-Independent team, and is a
preseason candidate for this year also.
He was a member of the All-Carolinas
team by The Charlotte Observer.
This one time former quarterback
came to ECU solely for punting. He was
a punter in high school and sometimes
played quarterback to fill what he called
a void on the team.
His experience as a quarterback
helped him last season against South
Carolina where he completed two passes
on a fake field goal and fake punt. He
hit Scott Richards with a 25-yard TD
pass on the fake field goal attempt.
For people who say punting the
ball is a breeze, Levine has something
different to say.
"There is the image you have to just
go out and kick the ball and there's a
lot more to it than that added Levine.
Levine believes that people who re-
ally know and understand the game re-
alize there is more to it than meets the
His 15th ranking last year made
Levine feel pretty good to finish that
high, and gave him high expectations
for this year. But Levine doesn't feel
he is performing well enough to uphold
that ranking for this year, but it does
give him a goal to strive for next year.
Many times the punters are roughed
up and beat down by the opponents.
Levine has seen his fair share of hits
but he gets right up and keeps on go-
ing. He has a lot of confidence in the
line and believes they will protect him.
"Basically if it happens, it happens.
But most of the time we are able to get
the ball off and our guys can get down
the field and cover pretty well Levine

If Big East doesn't

One out of three noble achieve-
ments have been accomplished already
this season by the Pirates.
With ECU'S 31-25 win over Army
last Saturday, the Pirates have ensured
themselves their second consecutive
winning season for the first time in
twelve years.
And with a one game lead over Cin-
cinnati (5-4) in the Liberty Bowl Alli-
ance with two games remaining, the
Pirates look to be repeat champions of
the five member correlation again this
But ask the Pirates if either of these
accomplishments hold the weight of a
coveted Liberty Bowl Championship,
and you'll see that this season still has
a lot left to be proven for coach Steve
Looa and his squad.
" The anticipation of ECU returning
to Memphis again this December has
already begun throughout Greenville,
even though Logan and company know
that the second-place Bearcats are
breathing down their necks with two
games left in the season.
Remember, if Cincinnati and ECU
finish up with the same records, the fact
that the Bearcats won the match-up in
the regular season will put them ahead
of us in the alliance. Southern Missis-
sippi (4-5), Memphis (3 6), and Tulane
(2-7) have already made their golf tee-
times for December.
If ECU can win these last two games
here at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium and fin-
ish 8-3 on the season, there's no ques-
tion that we're in the Liberty Bowl.
The two wins will also give Logan
his best record as head coach, after fin-
ishing 7-5 last season, 2-9 in 1993, and
5-6 in his rookie year as head coach
the season before.
So, with the season winding down,
the tension's heating up, not only to
see who the Liberty Bowl Alliance Cham-
pion will be, but who they will play on
December 30th in Memphis. The Big
East fourth place finisher is the planned
opponent, but with the Big East having
a down year this season, there's a
chance that four teams won't have the
required six victories to participate.
The likely choice from the Big East
is West Virginia, whom the Pirates pre-
viously beat this season here in
Greenville. A rematch of the Mountain-
eers would not only be exciting for ECU,
because we know we can beat them, but
also for WVU, who have revenge on their
mind. The biggest roadblock for West
Virginia is Saturday's game at Miami
against the Hurricanes.
What happens if only three teams
from the Big East have the six required
victories? That's what Bob Martin, head
of the St. Jude Liberty Bowl Alliance
must decide.
The early candidates of teams out-
side the Big East include Oklahoma,
Iowa, Wisconsin, University of Mary-
land, and UCLA. And with the likelihood
of West Virginia not being able to beat
Miami, look for one of these teams to
be a possible opponent.
And with the Pirates on track to re-
turn to the Bowl, ECU fans are ready
for Memphis. The question is: is Mem-
phis ready for us?
"We're definitely excited about the
possibility of ECU coming back to Mem-
phis Martin said.
"We believe that this season, ECU

fans will be even bigger in numbers than

Martin has added an exciting col-
lege basketball game the night before
the big-game, matching up the Temple
Owls with the Memphis Tigers. This is
just a taste of the many activities that
will take place to help the St. Jude Hos-
pital of Memphis, a children's hospital
that has been offering free medical care
to thousands of children suffering from
catastrophic diseases such as Leukemia.
"The St. Jude Hospital is ultimately
what this whole weekend is all about.
Since the early 1970's, our cure rate
has increased 40 percent thanks to do-
nations and fund-raisers such as this
Liberty Bowl Martin said.
Martin advises ECU students that
if the Pirates win the Alliance, they
should reserve early, and be ready for
an exciting weekend.
"Its going to be great here in Mem-
phis. The weather is always good, and
if ECU is coming, we are going to throw
them a party on Thursday and Friday
night on Beale Street like they've never
Hey, sounds like our kind of town,

Even Pirate fans young at heart, hope ECU makes a return trip
to the Liberty Bowl December 30th in Memphis, Tenn.
