Proposed fee increases exceed cap

Staff Writer
During a special meeting of
ECU's Student Government Associa-
tion Monday night, administrators
and students joined together to de-
bate proposed student fee increases
for next Fall.
Speaker Harry Bray discusses asking the
Media Board to further discuss yearbook.
Ian Eastman, SGA president, led
a debate that proposed an input of a
$43 student fee increase for the 1996-
1997 academic year, exceeding a five
percent cap set by the state.
Mike Hamrick, athletic director,
spoke in favor of an increase of $12
for athletic fees. Last year the ath-
letic department asked for and was
approved S10. However, a reduction
of $5 was officially
passed by the
board of gover-
"This previ-
ous reduction is a

Assistant News Editor
An ECU medical professor was
attacked last week in a parking lot
while walking to his car.
On Thursday afternoon, at ap-
proximately 4:06 p.m Dr. Irvin E.
Lawrence Jr a full-time professor of
anatomy and cell biology at the School
of Medicine, was walking from the
medical school building in a direction
toward Fifth Street. Lawrence was
heading to a p rking lot for his car
when a man jumped out from between
two cars, hit him in the face several
times, then took his wallet.
The man stole a total of $45.
"He was taken to the hospital,
treated for a broken nose and released
from the hospital said Tom Fortner,
director of medical center news and
information. "He did come to work
last Friday, and I understand he is
doing pretty well now
Dr. Jack Brinn, chairman of the
anatomy and cell biology department
said on Monday that "he is not expe-
riencing any pain at this point" and
is trying to put the incident behind
Though the attack happened so
fast, Lawrence was able to vaguely
describe his attacker.
"Initially, the man Lawrence was
in shock said ECU Police Chief
Teresa Crocker. "He could only give
a general clothing description
The police later built a more de-
tailed composition of the attacker and
hope to find him.
"We do have a few leads that we
are following up on Crocker said.
"Hopefully, we will be successful
One eye witness told police that
the attacker ran off in the direction
of a nearby nursing home. Police have
searched the area a number of times
for the stolen wallet but have not
found it
Crocker said she believes the ap-
proaching holiday season and the de-
sire for money has something to do
with the attack and the increase in
robberies during this time of the ye .
She said it has been about two years
since ECU has had a high rate of this
type of robbery on campus.
In response to the incident, po-
lice have increased security around
those areas.
"We have put more officers in
those lots when people are leaving in

Yearbook debate continues
Board votes
against requesting
fee increase
Tambra Zion
News Editor
A poll taken by ECU'S Student
Government Association (SGA) last
Wednesday had strong results, yet the
media board has declined to request
a proposed $2 fee increase to reinstate
a print yearbook.
Out of 475 respondants, 96 per-
cent answered that they would like to
see a print yearbook revived at ECU.
Ninety-one percent of respondents
stated they would be interested in
purchasing a print yearbook if one
were made available and 89 percent
would support a $2 increase to rees-
tablish a print yearbook.
"It's (the survey) not a random
sample, it's a convenience sample"
said Ann Minton. assistant professor
in the School of Business. "The people
who answered the questions were
obviously interested in a yearbook.
You can't generalize these results to
the entire student population
Minton said 475 answers would
be an accurate sample if the poll had
been taken in a scientific method
rather than through polling sites.
A letter to the editor which ran
in TEC last Thursday expressed one
student's opposition to a fee increase.
Despite the poll results, ECU's
Media Board denied recommending a
$2 fee increase for the reestablishment
of a print yearbook in a split decision.
During an SGA meeting last
night Speaker Harry Bray pressed a
request for the media board to recon-
sider its decision and call another
meeting to vote on a student fee in-
crease of $2.
"I think the poll is an accurate
measure of student opinion said
Bray said. "I feel the (Media) Board
was too conservative on that issue

Speaker to focus on multiculturalism
Marguerite Benjamin
Senior Writer
Due to the efforts of the ECU
Minority Presence Initiative, a re-
nowned speaker from Pembroke Uni-
versity who plans to educate both fac-
ulty members and student athletes will
speak today.
Dr. Joseph Oxendine. chancellor
of Pembroke University and a noted
scholar in the related fields of psychol-
ogy of human movement and aquisition
of motor skills, has made several
speeches around the state on the topic
of multiculturalism. He also served on
a panel here a tew years ago which was
formed to address the topic and explore
the benefits and opportunities that
stem from having a diverse campus.
Oxendine will arrive today to de-
liver two addresses. At 3 p.m. in the
the Pat Draughton Room Ward Sports
Medicine Building, Oxendine will present
"Multiculturalism and Diversity on
Today's University Campuses
"I expect the majority of my audi-
ence for the first speech will be prima-
rily faculty and administrators Oxendine
said. "At that time I will be discussing
the responsibilities and roles of adminis-
trators and faculty members as they con-
front certain issues of multiculturalism
Oxendine said he will also be dis-
cussing the problems that may arise
when one is dealing with the various
members of a diverse student popula-
Later, at 7:30 p.m Oxendine will
deliver a second address in rooms 236
and 237 of the Ward Sports Medicine
Building entitled "The True Value of In-
tercollegiate Athletics
Oxendine has an extensive back-
ground in the field of intercollegiate
sports and physical activities, being the
founding dean of the College of Health,
Physical Education, Recreation and
Dance at Temple University in Phila-
delphia, Pa. He has received several
awards and honors in his field of study.
Oxendine is also remembered as
an athlete at Catawba and as a profes-
sional baseball player in the Pittsburgh
Pirate's minor-league system.
"Having been a former college
and professional athlete myself
Oxendine began, "I find it necessary
to educate college athletes on various
aspects of their athletic careers and
their lives once they have graduated
The members for the committee
of the ECU Minority Presence Initia-
tive consider it a real privelage to have
Oxendine at the university and extend
an invitation to all students, faculty
and community members to attend
these free pesentations.
Waste solutions offered

Senior Writer
The detrimental implications of the irresponsible handling and disposal
of hog farm wastes and by-products in North Carolina and surrounding states
has been explored in every possible light. Recently, a biology professor at
ECU offered a few plausible solutions to the problem in his presentation en-
titled, "The Political and Social Implications of Hog Farm Wastes in North
On last Thursday, some concerned students and a few representatives
from area hog farmers gathered in Mendenhall's Social Room to hear Dr.
Clifton Knight impart his knowledge of the situation.
"No, this is not in my particular field of research Knight told TEC. "But
I do feel the topic is worthy of discussion as these farms are coming to affect
almost every aspect of wildlife and natural resources in our area
Knight offered to be a speaker for Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political
Science Honor Society's Fall Presentation Series and discuss the problems
that have risen because of local swine industries and some possible solutions
to these problems.
According to Knight, many hog farm operators dispose of the wastes

Government out of money, time
The School of
Music at ECU is
home of a wide va-
riety of talent dis-
played both by fac-
ulty and students.
James Rees, profes-
sor of broadcast-
ing in the Depart-
ment of Library of
Studies and Education Technology has recognized this talent and
developed a series dedicated to displaying the work of the faculty
and staff.
For approximately the past seven years, Rees has aired a pro-
gram on WTEB 89.3 AM entitled East Carolina School of Music Con-
cert This program highlights recitals by faculty and students in ar-
eas such as solos, ensembles, string and symphony orchestras, cho-
ruses and various other displays of talent in the School of Music.
The East Carolina School of Music Concert is a weekly program
aired every Sunday at 11:30 a.m. The show was previously aired on
Mondays and has moved to the new Sunday timing.
This is just one example of service work that Rees has partici-
pated in at ECU. He has also been performing services such as voice
overs on various tapes and presentations used by ECU for public
relations work as well as voke overs for instructional videos. An-
other area that Rees has worked in is the area of continuing'educa-
tion and workshop instruction.
"I like to teach, adults. I've had a good time teaching off campus
through the Department of Continuing Education as well as teach-
ing groups of people ranging through firefighters and police for the
city of Greenville to family practitioners in the School of Medicine, "
said Rees.
Rees has also taught workshops for various organizations on
how to deal with media who may want information on a breaking
news story.
The Greenville Times recently recognized Rees as Best ECU Pro-
fessor after the result of a student survey. Rees teaches classes in
areas such as radio, production, advanced production announcing
and others. His area of primary interest is broadcasting.
"I love teaching. I've always put teaching first a�d continue to
do so and will continue to do so said Sees.
Rees has been with ECU since the fall of 1966 when ECU was
still East Carolina College before the passing of the university sys-
(AP) - President Clinton and con-
gressional leaders scheduled a last-
gasp meeting Monday night at the
White House to attempt resolving a
budget showdown as the government
braced for a partial shutdown.
"We're willing to go down and
talk to the president about how to
keep the government open House
Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga said
Monday night "He set no precondi-
tions. We set no preconditions
Earlier in the day, Clinton had
vetoed one budget bill and prepared
to reject another. It was uncertain
whether the late talks might avert a
shutdown when most of the
government's spending powers were
to elapse at midnight Monday.
White House press secretary
Mike McCurry said Senate Majority
Leader Bob Dole and Gingrich had
"reached out to the president"
"They must have something new
to say McCurry said.
Also to attend the 10 p.m. EST
meeting at the White House were
House and Senate Democratic Lead-
ers Dick Gephardt and Tom Daschle.
The Senate was recessed until 11
p.m. in anticipation of some devel-

take place in the Oval Office after
Clinton vetoed a temporary spend-
ing bill. Also invited to the meeting
were House Democratic Leader Dick
Gephardt and Senate Minority
Leader Tom Daschle.
Citing GOP budget priorities
that would "rob the American dream
from millions of Americans Clinton
vetoed emergency legislation that
would extend the government's abil-
ity to borrow money beyond its ex-
pected expiration Wednesday. Trea-
sury Secretary Robert Rubin imme-
diately took steps to raise cash and
prevent a first-ever default, which
could cause financial tumult
The Senate, by voice vote,
passed and shipped to Clinton on
Monday a separate stopgap bill fi-
nancing agencies through Dec. 1.
That too, was destined for a veto.
Knowing that congressional leaders
planned to keep the House and Sen-
ate in session until midnight or later
in case the president and Republi-
cans could find middle ground. But
first, they said, Clinton would have
to contact them, not vice versa.
"We'll be available if the presi-
dent gives any indication he doesn't
want to shut down the government"
Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole,
R-Kan told reporters.
But with most agencies' power
to spend money set to expire at the
start of business Tuesday, failure to
break the political deadlock meant
that 800,000 federal civilian employ-
ees - 40 percent of the workforce -
could be sent home, the first fed-
eral shutdown in five years.
Alice Rivlin, director of the Of-
fice of Management and Budget, told
heads of federal agencies to have
their employees report for work as
usual Tuesday morning. If it looks
like a temporary budget measure ac-
ceptable to the president will clear
Congress on Tuesday, agencies will
operate normally. If the prospect for
such legislation is dim, the White
House will initiate the partial shut-

Both bills contained provisions
Clinton opposes, such as higher Medi-
care costs for the elderly and restric-
tions on future anti-pollution rules.
The president pledged to block those
items, despite the havoc it would
wreak on federal services and bor-
rowing plans.
"Ordinary Americans don't like
pressure tactics, and I would be
wrong to permit these kind of pres-
sure tactics to dramatically change
the course of American life Clinton
said as he vetoed the borrowing leg-
islation. "I cannot do it and I will
not do it"

Bennett denied Bray's request
"A proposed fee increase has
already been settled by the media
board Bennett said following the
meeting. "I don't see any need to vote
again on something that's been de-
cided on. There's no need to rush in
light of the fact that no scientific
study has been done to determine
interest in having a yearbook
Bennett expressed these reasons
for his decision and advised SGA
members to get copies of media
board minutes from the Nov. 9 meet-
ing in order to examine the entire
reasoning and discussion behind the
board's decision. He also cited a need
for qualified �taff to fill the jobs a
yearbook would create.
With the help of Interfraternity
Council President Justin Conrad,
Bray hopes the debate over a printed
yearbook will come to light in a fu-
ture media board meeting. Conrad
holds a vote on the media board and
abstained during Thursday's meet-

promise for students who wouldn't

Despite a lack of funds, the pos-
sibility of a print yearbook remains
on the drawing board.
"I think it's worth taking a look
at" said media board Adviser Paul
Wright "I feel there is a necessity to
have a publication which chronicles
the school year - that is something
we currently lack at the university.

"The committee is looking at
options that would fill the purpose of
chronicling the year Wright said.
He said reinstating such a large
project would require start-up fees of
around $36,000, the amount a fee in-
crease would bring. In addition,
Wright estimated a print yearbook
would cost $125,000 to produce 3,400
One SGA representative said that
student fees allocated to the media
board were not decreased when the
yearbook ceased publication and said
there might be a need for reallocation
of funds. Wright responded by saying
the media board has not received a
fee increase since 1988, and took a
voluntary $1 decrease during last
year's SGA budget trimming.
"It would seem that the student
body, even though we didn't have a
large number vote, we did have a sig-
nificant number vote, would like to
see the print yearbook revived SGA

SGA members remain optimistic
about the possibility of a printed year-
book on ECU's campus.
"I think we're going to pursue the
issue it's something we've put a lot
of effort into Bray said. During
Monday's meeting, Bray stressed that
the time is right for the board to re-
quest the increase, so any sort of
project decided on by the subcommit-
tee would have funds available rather
than having to wait an additional year.
Wright said money from the video
yearbook and other sources would be
adequate in getting printed yearbook
efforts off and running.

from their farms in open lagoons that
have become the source of many prob-
lems for many people from
homeowners to area fishermen.
Knight said that anyone who lives
near a hog farm can bear witness to
the fact that the odor from these op-
erations is a real nuisance.
Homeowners consider moving to new
locations which gives hog farmers
more room to expand. Knight said the
smell from a hog farm of moderate
size can cover an area of five square
miles or more.
"First of all, these lagoons are a
real environmental health hazard
Knight said. "Some of the more seri-
ous problems include the production
of ammonia rain, the increased appear-
ance of the round worm parasite and
an over population of algae blooms
in our water resources
He said the effects of ammonia
rain are numerous. Precipitation with
an elevated amount of ammonia is
detrimental to crops and revenue
yielding animals such as beef cattle,
who feed from these contaminated
crops. People also suffer the effects
of eating ammonia-contaminated
The round worm parasite has
become a major concern since hog
farms have become more and more
prevalent. Because of open hog waste
lagoons, round worm cysts have
formed in soil in some areas, and the
parasites are actually airborne in some

included some changes in irrigation

of more wastewater treatment systems
like the one adopted by farms in
nearby Beulaville.
According to Knight, wastewater
treatment facilities are relatively small
but very effective. Wastewater is, in a
way, recycled at an on-site system and
used to clean the water which is later
used to wash hog quarters. Knight
said the odor of treated water is mini-
mal, and the process reduces ammo-

Matthews said there is no guar-
antee that the center will open on
time. But that there are hopes for
the new July 15 opening date.
Brown addressed the last fee pro-
posal, in recognition of the debt ser-
vice fee. Because of ECU's recent con-
struction woes, the state has granted
flexibility in compliance with a five
percent cap on total student fee in-
creases. The debt service fee is money
already owed by the university.
Brown said an increase was neces-
sary in order to develop the newly
acquired Blount intramural complex
behind on the corner of Greenville
Boulevard and Charles Boulevard.
"We are allowed up to $100, last
year we used $40 for our mandatory

construction on the new intramural
complex will start at the end of next

This is SGA's second year in in-
volvement in recommending an input
for a student fee increase. After the
proposals were made by the adminis-
trative heads, SGA voted in agreement
to pass $10 in athletic fees (a reduc-
tion from $12 proposed), $5 remain-
ing for education and technology fees,
$20 to remain the same and avoid
sabotage for recreational services and
an $8 debt service fee increase to de-
velop the new intramural fields.
The proposal will be given to
Chancellor Eakin, he will make his
recommendations to the board of
trustees on Dec. 8, and it will then
proceed to the general administration
of the UNC-system. The board of gov-
ernors makes all final decisions en any
student fee increases.
Last year, a proposal for a $55
increase passed by SGA and was rec-
ommended by Eakin and the board
of trustees, but was later reduced to
a minimal $40.

There seems to be some confusion with regard to an important
campus issue. It seems that some SGA executives are hog-wild about
the idea of a print yearbook- but what they don't realize is how
much time and money are essential in creating such a project Their
argument, that students want a print yearbook, was heard by the
media board, but the board still chose to vote against a $2 fee in-
The media board subcommittee had less than a month to deter-
mine what type of medium shouid fill the gap left when The Bucca-
neer departed the world of ECU student media and just how much
money was needed to do so. Because of such time constraints, the
board voted against the increase. The media board adviser warned
against making the same mistake of printing an inadequate publica-
tion twice.
Granted, we all want something to chronicle the past year, at this
point, we just don't know what
The most important point toTEC is who is going to design this
yearbook? We know just how difficult it is to recruit writers for our
publication, so we can only anticipate the problems which will arise
when forming a yearbook staff.
Although the media board voted against the fee increase, they
did decide to continue working on reestablishing some form of yearly
TEC ran a news story last Tuesday where SGA execs polled
students concerning their thoughts on reviving the printed annual. A
spokesman for SGA stated, "I've heard since I was a freshman that it
really stinks that we don't have one The same speaker said the
establishment of a print yearbook would improve ECU's respect and
help restore school spirit
Coach Steve Logan was a little disappointed with the student
turn-out this weekend at the Tulsa game. Perhaps there is a correla-
tion here.
Maybe a printed yearbook will restore school spirit we'll fill Dowdy-
Ficklen and everyone will be purple and gold and happy. And to
think all this time all we needed was a book.
The poll taken by SGA overwhelmingly supports a print year-
book and TECs "Pirates on the Street" report had the same positive
result But these are not scientific tests and results. In last week's
survey, 475 students voted. That's 475 students out of more than
17,000, who favored the idea of a printed yearbook. In response to
the SGA poll, the media board said it was not scientific and would
like to see a poll taken randomly over the phone.
Some media board members questioned who would buy these
books (for $3040 each) when in years past they couldn't even be
given away. The yearbook spokesman said they would try to market
the books to students' parents. We at TEC believe this would work
for the freshman, but most of us pay our own bills now and don't
think it's likely our parents will throw in $30 for a yearbook. But hey
- it was a good suggestion.
Last night the issue was once again brought up at the SGA meet-
ing. This time the group voted to ask the media board to meet again
despite the fact that the board had debated the issue for nearly two
hours. The media board chair spoke to SGA and addressed why the
board voted against the increase and also told the group that the
decision was final.
The yearbook spokesman continued debate and after about five
minutes of discussion, half of the voting legislature filed out of the
room. The debate finally ended when a member of SGA questioned
why they were discussing an increase when they had already voted
on the maximum amount of student fee increases (that's another
whole story).
If so many students at this school want to see ihe print yearbook
reinstated, why weren't they at the meeting yesterday? Why were the
SGA members leaving the room as quickly as they could? Why did
only 475 students vote on this issue? Why aren't these interested
students knocking on the door of the media board saying they want
the experience of producing a print yearbook? Until these issues are
addressed the print yearbook will remain null and void.
To the Editor:
Recently, I had a conversation
with my best friend from high school,
and a recent ECU grad, that had just
arrived home from his summer rock
climbing job in British Columbia. He
seemed really excited about the fact
that people e met there were talking
about the sport of ultimate frisbee,
and actually knew about the ECU
team, the Irates.
Well, since I have played for the
Irates the last three seasons, I too
was very intrigued. But then I began
to think, "Wow, that's strange that
people in a different country are
more knowledgeable about ultimate
and the Irates than are people here
at ECU I decided we needed some
publicity here on our campus, so my
logical thought was The East Caro-
linian, Right? Wrong! I thought
that if I wrote an article on our team
winning their second consecutive
national college championship at the
University of Illinois this past sum-
mer, and turned it in with a couple
of pictures, that The East Carolin-
ian could find some time this semes-
Ultimate Insult
ter to actually print the article silly,
silly me.
After several blatant lies from the
editor in chief and the sports editor,
both face to face and over the phone,
winter is upon us and our season over
this past weekend. And still The East
Carolinian, and it'sfsic incompetent
staff has failed to print one word about
the Irates and our two national cham-
pionships all semester.
Now, I know I may have some bias
because I play for the Irates, but it
seems like with over 600 teams play-
ing ultimate in the U.S. and ECU be-
ing 724 over the last two years that
this would actually be news-worthy.
Instead, we have been upstaged by
ridiculous articles as "Yum, Yum, Con-
testants Chow Down on Hot Dogs to
Win Two Free Tickets to This Week's
Game (complete with three by five
picture), and "Soccer Fields Wet With
Rain now that's news!
Also, we were promised (For at
least the fifth time) that an article
about our national championship and
our home tournament (that just oc-
curred this past weekend) would ap-
pear in the Nov. 2 edition. Instead, an
article about the "Super Ho's" win-
ning intramural flag football champi-
onships was printed. Now, Don't get
me wrong I have friends on the "Su-
per Ho's" and they deserve their
props, but couldn't their article have
been run the following Tuesday, and
ours been run on Thursday (like we
were promised), before our tourna-
ment, instead of later when our tour-
nament and season is over? Common
sense is such a valuable thing.
Okay, I'll step down from the
pulpit, my point has been made. For
all of those who have supported the
Irates and come out to see us play
this semester, a thousand thank
you'ssic. For those of you who are
still unfamiliar with the sport of ulti-
mate, and one of the best college
teams of the 90's, your very own ECU
team, maybe you should book a flight
to Canada because it's obvious you
won't hear about us here on campus.
Ungratefully yours.

Uninformed opinions are the basis
for the realities that people create in

were just a term used to describe some

Even though I have made this a
little random, my point is simple: 1) If j
you are going to have an opinion on
anything and are going to teU it to some-
one, be humble. There is not a human !
on this planet that wields as much in-
formation as they say they do or as they
really feel that they do.
2) Be aware of the commitment;
that our football team makes on a dairy :
basis. Many of them may have missed !
out on many times of just hanging �
around because they were in the weight
room or they were on the field. They �
do have the privilege of representing ;
this school in a national forum but they
are also students just like us.
3) If you happen to subscribe to .
Cinemax or Showtime trade them in. �
Their programming is not as good as !
their commercials or their pamphlets.
The Disney channel is much more ex
citing. They have cartoons on all the
time and cartoons are good.
4) Be a good listener.
Thanks for going all the way �
through this. I hope it was not as pain- :
ful as it might have been. If you read ;

experiences can be in-
gredients for great art
and inspiration for oth-
ers. With this in mind,
Greenville will be privy
to the life and works of
the accomplished and
anthologized poet W. D. Snodgrass
when he reads his own work at ECU
this Thursday night.
Snodgrass has been referred to
as one of the founders of "confes-
sional" poetry, despite the fact that
he disassociates himself from such
labeling. Regardless what school of
thought you try to place him in,
Snodgrass has definitely had an im-
pact on the poetic world. His first
collection, Heart's Needle, won the
Pulitzer Prize and helped validate
confessional writing, writing which
dares to explore hidden, repressed
pains and desires.
Born in Pennsylvania and raised
in a Quaker household, Snodgrass
carried his writing interests into the
university. After receiving his B.A.
and M.A he went on to earn his
M.F.A. at the State University of
Iowa in 1953, where he was trained
in such modes of poetry as the sym-
W.D. Snodgrass
bolist metaphysical traditions.
While Snodgrass may be aca-
demically trained in more traditional
poetic styles, his work speaks on a
highly accessible personal level. His
poetry draws from his own life, in-
cluding his family life. Heart's
Needle (published in 1959) incorpo-
rated poems dedicated to his daugh-
ter. In fact, Snodgrass used the tur-
moil he suffered through his mari-
tal life as subjecLs for his first two
Success may have come too fast
for Snodgrass, however. Not only did
his first book win the Pulitzer Prize
in 1960, but it also earned the Brit-

Rob Reiner's Stand by Me, based on a Stephen
King short story, serves as a model of how to effec-
tively film a tale of adolescence. Reiner captured the
magic of the King story about four boys making a
daylong trip to see the corpse of a boy hit by a train.
Richard Dreyfus made a credible appearance at the
beginning and end of the film as the narrator of the
story. His storytelling added poignance to the memo-
rable tale. The journey of the boys served as the cata-
lyst for the beginning of their maturation into men.
A new film, with the unoriginal title Now and Then,
strives to desperately catch the emotional resonance of
Stand by Me. Instead of four boys, Now and Then en-
tails the journey of four girls. Instead of a journey to
see a corpse, in Now and Then the girls make a trek to
a library in another town to solve the mystery surround-
ing the death of a young boy. Instead of a junk yard to
serve as a testing ground for the boy's maturity, a cem-
-� -
story drains Now and Then
etery serves to test the girls' maturity. And instead of a
heartfelt remembrance filled with small moments, Now
and Then forces a contrived story with several artifi-
cial moments from an unbelievable premise that the
promises made by 12-year-old girls would be honored
20 years later.
Now and Then begins with the meeting of four
friends (Rita Wilson, Demi Moore, Rosie O'Donnell and
Melanie Griffith) in the "now" part of the story. The
friends reminisce about how they acted in the "then"
part of the story. The "then" roles are filled by Ashleigh
Aston Moore, Gaby Hoffman, Christina Ricci and Thora
Birch. This gathering of the four friends takes place
because Wilson's character is about to give birth.
Though happily married, Wilson's character claims
that she needs her friends around her. When the friends
were 12 they promised that they would all get together
whenever one of them was in need. No explanation is
proffered as to why Wilson's character needs her friends,
so I decided it must have been to make this ridiculous

MTV rot in Hell! Die die die
die die!
Ah, that's better. Maybe now
1 can make some sense.
Initially, I was going to write
a big review of Friday night's
REM concert at the Dean Dome
in Chapel Hill. I planned this re-
view weeks ago, scheduled space
for it here on the Lifestyle page,
and really looked forward to the
Then I went to the show.
Now, don't get me wrong.
REM is one of the best rock
bands walking the earth today.
They put on a really amazing
concert, playing an unprec-
edented six unreleased tracks.
They delved briefly into music
from the days before they were
international superstars and
worked that huge arena like it
was a club the size of the Attic. I
have no gripes with REM; they
put on a fantastic show.
But I didn't enjoy myself at
REM was once my favorite
band, but I didn't have fun see-
ing them. This was most likely
the last concert I'll ever see them
give, and I spent most of it feel-
ing dissatisfied. Now that it's
over, I've got to wonder why.
Granted, the atmosphere
didn't help. The Dean Dome has
a slaughterhouse mentality archi-
tecture that I find vaguely fright-
ening. The seats are built into
solid concrete decks, slanted at
a vertiginously steep angle. The
steps leading to those seats are
perilously narrow, leaving half of
your foot hanging in empty air
as you try to maneuver your way
Once you get to your seat,
you find that it's tiny and made
of some torturously hard plastic.
Squeezing into this tight space,
you then realize that there's also
barely enough room for your
knees. If you shift to get more
comfortable, you bump bone
against the back of the head of
the person seated in front of you.
It's all very much like a giant
veal-fattening pen.
This wasn't my first trip, but
it will probably be my last.
But even the utter agony of
the Dean Dome (and the crappy
seats I paid 30 bucks for) wasn't
enough to make me so ill at ease
with this show.
Nor was the crowd, com-
prised mostly of teeny boppers
and Johnny-come-lately fans who
didn't even know "South Central
Rain While their lack of knowl-
edge about any REM stuff prior
to 1988 was irksome, their en-
thusiasm for the music they did
know more than made up for it.
In fact, one of the few mo-
ments of pure joy I experienced
Friday night was when an East
Carolinian movie reviewer (who
shall remain nameless) took off
his shirt and danced around like
a big goofball. It does my heart
good to see people enjoying
themselves as much as this crowd
The problem might be that I
was stuck sitting near a really an-
noying guy who kept making fun
of everybody who was having a
good time. But no, even this
lame-ass didn't get on my nerves
enough to make me dislike an
REM show.
No, it takes a huge, demonic,
evil corporate entity to do that
And since I can only think of one
huge demonic evil corporate en-
tity with the kind of power it
would take to turn me off Stipe
and the boys, I must blame MTV.
MTV boil in your own fester-
ing, rotten bodily juices!
Ahem. See, this is a problem
I've been grappling with for some
time now. Despite the fact that I
think the last three REM albums
have mostly been well done, lit-

film. The friends even follow the
mom into the delivery room. I imag-
ine every father would like three of
his wife's friends to horn in on such
a private moment.
The story in the "then" portion
of the film is slightly more believ-
able than the "now" section, but
not much. Instead of focusing on
the friendship and on the develop-
ment of the girls, the film wastes
time with scene after scene of the
girls at home. Thus, no time is left
to develop the special bond that de-
velops between friends in early ado-
Each friend has problems with
her respective family that no one
else could possibly understand.
One's mother died, one's parents
are never home, one's mom is over-
protective and one's parents are
getting divorced. These family prob-
lems serve as the only real charac-
ter traits of the girls. The family
crises define the girls and deter-
mine their fates in later life. The
girl whose mom died grows up to
be a doctor to save other lives
(O'Donnell), the girl whose parents
are never home craves attention
(and boys) and thus grows up to be
a famous movie star (Griffith), the
one whose mother is overprotective
grows up to be an overprotective
mom and the girl whose parents di-
vorce finds solace in the supernatu-
ral and grows up to write super-
natural thrillers and wear black ev
eryday. Now and Then's story
would lead one to believe that the
personality traits of a person at 12
dictate their entire life.
Though a few scenes may re-
mind viewers of their childhood,
looking at old photo albums would
be more highly recommended. The
contrivances in Now and Then used
to tell the transparent story sap
what little real emotion was initially
present. The feelings left in the film
have all the integrity of a greeting
Now and Then succeeds every
now and then, but much of this film
is too simplistic for even a 12-year-
On a scale of one to 10, Now
and Then rates a five.

song. There is no doubt in my mind
where it's going - all the way to the
top of the "Loser" Top 10 charts. In

I think his music is cool, but it really
doesn't have all that much in com-

comparisons are really detrimental to
an artist. They're themselves and
there shouldn't be any comparisons
to anyone else.
"I admire anyone who has been
together longer than we have. We've
been together for three years and
there are a lot of things that can

that the new album, Alice In Chains,
is a return to the driving, determined
music of Facelift and Dirt. In the
past, though, the band made some
progression musically. Dirt was a
better album than Facelift, and Jar

Sap. Such is not the case with this

song on Dirt In fact, two of the tracks,
"Grind" and "Head Creeps are such
a step back for the band that they
sound like lost demos from Facelift.
There are some notable excep-
tions. "Heaven Beside You" provides
a perfect blending of Alice in Chains'
musical talents, moving from emotive
ballad to throbbing power chords and
back again.
"God Am" (with the lyrics, "Dear
God, how have you been then? I'm
not fine, fuck pretending All of this

and changing tempos, because they
recall the range that Alice In Chains
has shown before and hopefully will

Although this new album is only
a passable attempt for Alice In Chains,
it does show some inkling that their
greater talent, much like the band it-
self, is not dead. If the band ever learns
to fully combine their hard edge and
their soft touch on one album, rather
than keeping them separate, there's
no telling how far they could go.

Anyone taking a contemporary po-
etry class may very well find him on
the class syllabus. You've read the
works, now see the man and sup-
port Greenville's growing poetic
show, but the movement they did use
was more than enough to keep the
audience focused.
There were a few moments
throughout the show that made this
play for me. The fact that the actors
remained onstage for intermission was
fantastic! I watched closely, but saw
no breaks in character. 1 also found it
fascinating that the door to their "cell"
would sometimes be open and some-
times be closed. It was as if they were
being teased with freedom - although
when the door was open they could
not leave because of the shackles. I
did wonder why, in the second half,
Edward and Michael were only
chained by one wrist
The most chilling part of the
show for me was when Edward was
finally beaten; he broke down crying
and the light came on. My heart actu-
ally skipped a few beats. This was a
wonderful effect and worked ex-
tremely well.
I loved the rabbit impersonations.
Slade and Hirsch were hilarious! I also
loved their rendition of "Chitty Chitty

moments helped to expel some of the
pent-up tension and created the nec-
essary relief for the audience.
"Someone Who'll Watch Over
Me" might have had minimal costume?
and lighting, but the set was nowhere
near minimal. It seemed perfect down
to the last detail. A few times I thought
Haywood would break out of his
shackles, but they remained in the
wall due to their careful construction.
I believe this play is one of the
best I've seen at East Carolina. The
combined efforts of the director Don
Biehn, the designers, the crew and the
cast made "Someone Who'll Watch
Over Me" a delightful experience.

burn out on them so fast As I heard
those six new, unreleased songs and
enjoyed them quite a bit, enlighten-
ment struck.
I don't hate REM, I hate MTV.
MTV! MTV! Gaaaaahhhhhh!
See, the reason I find Auto-
matic for the People nearly
unlistenable these days is that I've
heard half the songs on it a million
times. And why have I heard them a
million times? Because MTV won't
fing stop playing them, that's
MTV! Hate rend mutilate
M T V!
In their efforts to strip-mine the
music industry, see, MTV plays a hit
song until its every note is not only
stuck in your head, but is in fact per-
manently branded onto your cere-
bral cortex. They take anything that
even smells like it might be success-
ful and, in their desperate, clutch-
ing search for "The Next Big Thing
they shove it down our consumer
throats until we choke on it
I don't even watch MTV, and
I've noticed. Just in flipping hastily
by it or catching snippets of it at
friends' houses, I've figured this out
And even if you avoid MTV,
you're still stuck with their evil in-
fluence. You can't turn on the radio
without hearing the same songs
MTV plays, ad nauseum. You can't
walk ten feet without encountering
the power of MTV. It's enough to
make me hate just about anything.
And that's what's happened to
REM: MTV has played them to
death. As a friend of mine has said,
"Everybody Hurts" is a great song,
but if he doesn't hear it again for
another five or ten years, he'll be
one happy white boy. Ditto "Losing
my Religion Ditto "Star 69
And will they ever stop playing
"Black Hole Sun?"
Anyway, MTV has basically
turned REM into Led Zeppelin.
Sure, they're a great band, but if I
hear that "Stairway to Heaven" crap
one more time, I'm gonna kill some-
MTV has made me hate my fa-
vorite band.
I hope they burn in Hell.

Hello, is anybody out there?
Rain or shine fans
should support
their team
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
After watching the Pirates defeat
Tulsa, I wondered where everybody
I realize Mother Nature was of
no help, but come on Pirate fans,
sometimes rain is part of the pack-
age. The players, coaches, band mem-
bers and cheerleaders have to be out
there and so should you, if not for
the entire game at least part of it If
ECU is to try to get into a confer-
ence it is important that fans, espe-
cially students, pack the stands rain
or shine. We all walk to class in the
rain, so what's so bad about cheer-
ing our football team onto victory
through rain?
Maybe people don't want to get
their pretty little outfits wet or their
hair messed up, but buck up folks
it's a football game. It's not the time
to gossip and find out the latest so-
cial news at ECU.
The Pirates played their hearts
out Saturday, and it paid off in a big
way. They will be spending part of
their Christmas break in Memphis
playing in the Liberty Bowl for the
second consecutive year. It would
have been nice if more people were
there to see a game in which they
played hard and aggressively all four
Now some of you are saying you
just couldn't make it to the game be-
cause of the rain, I understand that.
I'm not trying to get anybody sick
with a cold or the flu. So here is an-
other example. Against Temple, I saw
people leaving towards the end of the
third quarter. It was a bright, sunny
day with not a drop of rain falling to
the ground. The student sections
were half full by the middle of the
fourth quarter and virtually empty
toward the end of the game. In my
eyes there is no excuse for that
But hey - who cares about foot-
ball when you can tailgate, drink till
you pass out and never even make it
to the game. The whole point of tail-
gating is to have fun, hang out with
good friends and get pumped up be-
fore you go, yes go, to the game. If
everybody who tailgated made it to
the games, the stands would prob-
ably be more crowded than I have
seen them lately.

Women drop exhibition opener
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
For the firrt time this year, Anne
Donovan's Lady Pirates took to the
court for their first basketball exhibi-
tion game of the season against Latvia
Women's TTT Club.
The starters for ECU were all ex-
perienced players from last year's squad.
They were junior guard Justine AUpress,
senioi guard Danielle Charlesworth, se-
nior guard Belinda Cagle, junior forward
Tracey Kelley and senior forward
Tomekia Blackmon.
Blackmon started the scoring drive
for the Pirates after getting ECU's first
four points off two baskets underneath
to begin the game. At the 7:28 mark,
Charlesworth hit a three pointer to put
the Pirates up by eight, 22-14. ECU's
biggest lead came after a Beth Jaynes
basket when she was fouled. The fresh-
man forward nailed the free throw and
put ECU ahead by 10 points, 29-19.
Going into the half, the Lady Pirates
had the lead, 30-25.
The first half of play saw the
Pirate's aggressiveness and ability to
move the ball welL One problem they
did have was the play down low in the
paint Because of Latvia's size, it was
hard for the Lady Pirates to get points
down low and score. They did score in
the paint but many times Latvia would
converge on whoever had the ball down
low, which was usually Kelley. However,
the team ran the floor well, and after
the first half Cagle led all Pirate scorers

with seven points.
But then came the second half.
Latvia came out strong and allowed
ECU only 19 points the whole half. The
Pirate's scoring came slowly. Kelley's 10-
foot jumper would prove to be the only
score from the 17:13 mark until the
1309 mark in which Allpress made a
lay-up and was fouled. After shooting
one shot she made the score 35-39.
The Pirates saw the lead they had
at halftime slowly disappear. At one
point they were down by 10 with 8:29
to go, but then came charging back to
cut Latvia's lead in half, after a Mary
Thorn three pointer and a basket by
Kelley underneath to make the score
45-50. But ECU couldn't hang on, and
a visibly frustrated Donovan saw her
Lady Pirates drop their exhibition
opener, 49-57.
There were a lot of strong plays and
many notables for the Pirates. Blackmon
led the ECU scorers with 10 points and
eight rebounds. Charlesworth and
Allpress both paced the Pirates with eight
points and four and five rebounds respec-
tively. Cagle contributed seven points
while Kelley finished with six points and
eight rebounds.
The Lady Pirates will host their sec-
ond exhibition game tomorrow night
against Athlete's in Action. Tip off is set
for 7:30 at Williams Arena.

bowl bid
Craig Perrott
Assistant Sports Editor
ECU braved the elements and
even weathered a Golden Hurricane,
as the Pirates defeated the University
of Tulsa 28-7 before a rain-drenched
home crowd Saturday afternoon.
The victory, coupled with a Cin-
cinnati loss to Kentucky, has guaran-
teed ECU a spot as the host team in
the 1995 St Jude Liberty Bowl.
It is the second year in a row that
the Pirates will have competed in the
post-season game, and senior defensive
tackle Walter Scott is looking to avenge
last year's 30-0 shut-out by Illinois.
"We're going bowling, and we've
got some unfinished business to deal
with said Scott "Last year we were
nationally embarrassed
To clinch the Liberty Bowl Alli-
ance Championship and the bowl
berth, the Pirates had to first get past
Tulsa. According to Scott, the players
didn't have any trouble getting moti-
vated for the contest
"I wanted to humiliate Tulsa
Scott said. "Last time they came down
here in '93, they humiliated these se-
niors. It was the same atmosphere:
rainy, muddy and they were success-
ful. Today we went out there and ex-
ecuted well and came out on top
"We came out real intense said
linebacker Carlos Brown. "A couple of
people said we weren't aggressive
enough on defense. Tulsa has been a
good team, coming back on teams this
year. We wanted to break their spirits
with themselves, not
any outside forces.
"We weren't
counting on Cincin-
nati to lose Brown
said. "We wanted to
go out and take care
of the business we
had to do. We
wanted to come out
and win these last
two games
ECU started
out strong, holding
the Golden Hurri-
cane to three downs
and out, and then
embarking on a
scoring drive that
would end with a 3-
yard Jerris McPhail
run up the middle.
McPhail had 41
yards Saturday.
The Pirates'
second possession
of the opening quar-
ter was marred by
two false start pen-
alties, a call that
would plague ECU
the entire game.
Tulsa Head Coach Dave Rader did
his best impression of Steve Logan in
the second quarter, sending in a fake
punt call on fourth down. Tulsa punter
Mark Delozier connected with Asher
Ladner to pick up the first
The play was kept alive by a drive
that saw Tulsa QB Troy DeGar account
for the Golden Hurricane's sole score
of the day on a 4-yard keeper.

in the first period of action. A hard
snap count by Marcus Crandell, and a
quick snap by senior center Kevin
Wiggins when the Tulsa defense

Basham steps up play to gain
basketball victory over Latvia
Dill Dillard
Staff Writer
Ugly, but it's still a win. That best
describes this past Saturday's 87-77
exhibition victory over the Latvia Se-
lect Team. This was the Pirates' first look
at the zone defense this season which
caused glitches in the execution of first
year Head Coach Joe Dooley's plan.
"Well it just doesn't get much ug-
lier, hopefully anyway said Dooley. "We
saw a situation that we had not played
against zone and it was painful, it was
painful tonight We just didn't play East
Carolina basketball Dooley added.
Despite the sloppy play by the Pi-
rates, the story of the night was junior
fat .vard Tim Basham. Basham, the most
experienced player on Dooley's squad,
led the Bucs in scoring with 22 as well
as lighting up beyond the arc with sue
three pointers. In the first half, Basham
also led the way with 11 of the Pirates
35, including the Pirates first three
points of the ball game.
"Timmy showed up tonight he re-
ally stepped up and did things to help
us win the game Dooley commented.
In the midst of all of the confusion
with the spread outlook, the Pirates may
have found a leader on this young
"He was smart tonight he huddled
everybody up and kept them organized
said Dooley.
It had been said before that it was
the young players who needed to step
up on this team that features only two
seniors in Von Bryant and Vic Hamilton.
Well the Pirates' coaching staff found
one in the 6-foot-5 Basham.
"My main role is to step up and
average 15 or something like that and
be a team leader said Basham.
Last season Basham started every
game and averaged only 10.6 points per
contest but shooting improvement was
shown Saturday night with the junior
shooting eight for 13 from the floor with
10 of those attempts coming from the
three-point line.
Senior forward Von Bryant, goes up and overto score
two in ECU's win over Latvia of Russia Select.
"I've been working on my shot the
last couple of practices said Basham.
The coaches have been working with
Another glimmer of light in the
sloppy Pirate performance was Pirate
newcomer Morris Grooms. Grooms, a
junior college transfer out of Pompar.o
Beach, Fla. aided the Bucs' effort with
11 points of his own along with five
rebounds and one blocked shot
"Well, Coach liked what he saw in
me at junior college and expected to
see it here, so I was expected to come
in and produce said Grooms.
The Pirates also managed to al-
low most of the squad to see playing
time with few exceptions.
"The intensity was there, but we
were not playing to our potential said
Dboley. "We have to wcrk on 'us' the
next few days in practice and see where
we are
Dooley's Pirates came out of the
exhibition season at 2-0, but the next
one will be for real when ECU will take

to American University 15-7, 16-14, 15-12 Friday Nov. 10

something that hadn't happened since 1989.
Carrie Brne led ECU with 15 kills and eight digs,
while senior Tara Venn, ranked 15th in the nation in indi-
vidual blocking, added seven total blocks.

ond in the nation in individual attack percentage, hit .813

loss in Wilmington, the no. 9 seeded
Pirates dominated the match on both
sides of the ball to taste victory for
the first time since the tournament
began in 1990.
"This was a total team effort

ECU's second score came at the
73:25 mark when England served a
pass in front of the UNCW goal.
Johnson, a junior from Wilmington,
N.C. leaped in the air and headed
England's pass into the Seahawk
The Pirates closed out the scor-
ing in exciting fashion when freshman
Bret Altheiser (Greensboro, N.C.) took
a pass from England at the 82:42
mark, rambled 40 yards down the field
and beat the Seahawk goalie one-on-
one for his fourth goal of the year.
The victory celebration was short-
lived for the Pirates as they faced
number-one seeded William & Mary
on Nov. 8. ECU was on the receiving
end of a 5-0 loss to the Tribe in the
quarterfinals of the CAA Tournament
The Tribe controlled the game
through 90 minutes, outshooting
ECU 23-7 and taking five more cor-
ner kicks than the Pirates.
William & Mary got on the board
early at the 9:12 mark when Billy
Owens scored the first of his three
goals on a direct kick from 18 yards
out Owens scored again at the 19:07
and 26:48 minute marks.
Mike Botta and Waughn Hughes
each scored a goal, while Paul Grafer
and Scott Powers split time at goal
for the shutout
The loss ends a productive sea-
son for the Pirates under Wiberg. ECU
(4-18-0) matched its win total from last
year at four and posted its most con-
ference wins at two.

MEMPHIS from page 8
"The whole time they were tim-
ing up on the snap count" Wiggins
said. "They were coming off of the ball
hard, and that makes it tougher on us.
After that play, that kind of slowed
them down because they weren't sure
of the snap count"
On the other side of the ball, Tulsa
seemed to move the ball at will in the
first half, pushing around the Pirate
defensive front
"Army was pretty successful in
running the option on us, so they came
out there and tried to pound it on us
Scott said. "At halftime, the coaches
changed up some little things
The adjustment made by the Pi-
rate coaching staff obviously worked,
as Tulsa was held scoreless in the sec-
ond half.
It was another game in which
Crandell rewrote the history books.
Crandell, who is already ECU's all-time
passing leader, has now captured the
record for total offense, surpassing yet
another Jeff Blake mark. Crandell now
has 5,788 yards of total offense, while
Blake's total was 5,618 yards. His next
target is touchdown passes. Blake
threw 43 in his tenure at ECU, while
Crandell currently has 41.
On the Pirates' second possession
of the first half, another record was
broken. Crandell connected with H-
back Mitchell Galloway on a swing pass,
and Galloway scooted 85 yards for the

The final points for the Pirates
came in the form of a 9-yard Crandell

on the ground.
Redshirt freshman fullback Daryl
Jones, who moved up second on tie

Harley shoulder injury, stepped up for
the Pirates. Jones had 41 yards against
the Golden Hurricane, equaling starter
Jerris McPhail's total.
