RALEIGH (AP) - Three pedes-
trians were among 10 people killed
on North Carolina roads over the
four-day holiday weekend, the N.C.
State Highway Patrol said.
The deaths bring the number
of fatalities on state roads this year
to 1,266, compared to 1,304 at this
time last year.
RALEIGH (AP) - The number
of new AIDS cases in North Caro-
lina has fallen steadily for the past
three years. But activists preparing
for World AIDS Day this week warn
that the drop in reported cases may
be deceptive.
The eighth annual World AIDS
Day is Friday. Observances are
planned in 190 countries, with a
goal of raising awareness of the dis-
ease and how to prevent it
AIDS is the second leading
cause of death for North Carolin-
ians between the ages of 15 and 44,
and the leading cause of death for
blacks in that age group.

NEW YORK (AP) - In a virtual
replay of scenes from the new movie
Money Train, two men squeezed a
flammable liquid into a subway to-
ken booth and ignited it blowing it
up and critically burning the clerk.
The early morning blast in
Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant sec-
tion shook apartments a block
away, splintered the bulletproof
booth and sent 50-year-old clerk
Harry Kaufman screaming up the
station stairs in flames.
Kaufman, who had been work-
ing on overtime, was in critical con-
dition this morning at New York
Hospital-Cornell Medical Center
with second and third-degree burns
over 75 percent of his body and in-
ternal damage from inhaling fire.
New York (AP) - Consumers
sent retailers a mixed message at
the start of this holiday season:
They hit the stores without spend-
ing a lot
Analysts expect this to be one
of the toughest Christmas seasons
in years. Consumers uncertain
about the economy and their own
finances already owe billions to
credit card companies and banks.

PARIS (AP) - Striking public
workers angered by plans to revamp
the social security system paralyzed
most of France Friday, forcing thou-
sands to walk, hitchhike and cycle
to work.
In Paris, all 14 subway lines
were shut down and 90 percent of
buses were idled. Across France,
most long-distance trains were not
running. Only 16 percent of airline
flights were operating.
Ireland's vote in favor of legalizing

The Cardinal of Stanford has
been named as the opponent for ECU
in the 1995 St Jude Liberty Bowl,
officials announced this weekend.
Stanford was a candidate for the
postseason game as early as last Mon-
day, and was selected after Saturday's
games. Stanford's com-
pany in the final selec-
tion process included
Iowa, Arkansas and
Georgia. Countless
other teams cam-
paigned for the herth,
including Maryland,
Arizona State, Wiscon-
sin, LSU, Miami (Ohio)
and a last minute run
by Baylor.
Notre Dame was a
slight possibility a
couple of weeks ago,
before the Irish de-
feated Air Force to remain in the AP
top ten. Iowa was eliminated from
consideration whan they accepted an
invitation to the Sun Bowl.
East Carolina representatives re-
portedly pushed for UNC-Chapel Hill,
but Liberty Bowl officials opted for
the East Coast-West Coast match-up
offered by the Cardinal.
The game should be an offensive
showcase, as Stanford has a potent
offense, lead by quarterback Mark
Butterfield. Butterfield has completed
194 of 333 passes this season and has
totaled 2,533 yards in the air. He has
thrown nine interceptions this year
and 19 TD's, leading Stanford to a 7-
3-1 (5-3 conference) record. The Cardi-
nal ground game is lead by top rusher
Anthony Bookman, who has tallied
920 yards on the ground
this year.
The Cardinal has not
scored less than 24 points
in any game this season,
and scored a season high
47 points versus San Jose
Stanford, a member
of the PAC-10, has de-
feated 12 Oregon, Cali-
fornia, San Jose State,
Utah, Arizona State, Or-
egon State and Washing-
? ton State. The Cardinal
posted losing efforts
against 24 Washington, 29 UCLA
and a 31-30 heartbreaking loss to 11
USC. Stanford also tied Wisconsin.
Stanford's defense is suspect how-
ever, giving up an average of 412 yards
per game. Their fan support in the
Liberty Bowl is also questionable; Cali-
fornia is a long way from Memphis.
The game should be a great boost

Registration and advising prob-
lems were the main issues discussed
at the annual Omicron Delta Kappa
(ODK) 1995 Deans and Issues Forum
held in the chancellor's residence on
Nov. 15.
Members of ODK,
other student leaders and
university deans met during
a brief reception on the
residence's first floor, then
moved into an adjoining
room to talk over issues that
are on the minds of stu-
The theme was "ECU
Quality: The Students' Per-
spectives and the chancel-
lor led an informal discus-
sion by raising a topic then
asking for responses.
The first topic was reg-
istration, which soon blended into an-
other big issue - student advising.
One senior said that the biggest
problem with registration was that
some students were using the termi-
nal employees as substitute advisers
which takes up time and increases the
registration lines.
Another student mentioned the
lack of available courses. He said there
were not enough sections for the
courses that students want or need
for their majors. As a result, students
go to sign up for classes at the termi-
nals only to find out that all sections
are closed, leaving them with no
classes and another trip to an adviser.
But according to Lucy Goodwin,
president of ODK, an extra trip to an
adviser might not do any good.
"People aren't going to advisers
for help Goodwin said. "I don't
think people go to advisors for more
than signatures as it is
Goodwin said that facultystu-
dent communication is the key to solv-
ing both the registration and advis-
ing issues. She said ODK is planning

No price hikes for Student health
Grace Sullivan
Staff Writer
There will be no more price increases on prescrip-
tion and over-the- counter medications for the Spring
semester at Student Health Services.
Heather Zophy, heaith educator coordinator at
Student Health Services, educates students on health
issues like STDs and safe sex. Zophy is also responsible
for ordering the medications used in the Student Health
Center. Zophy said the center orders through a con-
tract they have with the state of North Carolina.
"And when the state contract prices go up we must
also raise our prices just to cover the cost" Zophy said.
Prices on the state contract are set for the year.
This year there will be no more unexpected price in-
creases for medications received from the Student
Health Center.
Zophy said many students do not understand why
their student health fees do not cover the cost of medi-
cations received at the health center. She said student
fees only cover the price of bein� oc en by the physi-
cian, but not the cost of prescriptions and other medi-
Even with the new price increases, ECU's Student
Health Center is still considerably less expensive than
local private medical offices. Most of the local medical
offices charge a fee just to make an appointment and be
seen by a physician.
"The students are not expected to pay just for being
seen by our staff Zophy said.
Zophy was also concerned that students may not
always take full advantage of the services offered by the
Student Health Center.
"I just think students don't realize what they can
get here Zophy said. "The staff here is excellent Our
staff here truly cares for the students
To better serve their clients, the Student Health Cen-
ter is conducting a patient satisfaction survey to get in-
put from the students. The survey asks the patients who
have been seen recently about their last visit and how
they felt about the service they received. Zophy said the
survey has been helpful because students are giving good
ideas as to how the center can improve their services.
In the future, the Student Health Center plans to
start offering new services as they are being renovated
to better serve the students. Zophy would not comment
on exactly what changes will be made.

Cornell students' sexist e-mail spreads
A horrifying sexist list of the "Top 75 reasons why women (bitches)
should not have freedom of speech written by four Cornell fresh-
man, has spread over the Internet and is raising controversy at col-
lege campuses across the nation.
The vulgar e-mail has been multiplying exponentially as its sexist
jokes travel from Cornell to Harvard to Bryn Mawr to Boston College
to the University of California at Santa Cruz to Brown University.
The reasons listed run from lightly offending sexism - "17. High-
way fatalities would decrease by over 90 percent" - to violent and
misogynistic - "39. If she can't speak, she can't cry rape" - to
homophobic. The four Cornell freshmen who wrote the list "mailed
it to a certain number of friends, privately, who mailed it to other
friends, who mailed it to other friends said Jacqueline Powers, a
member of the Cornell administration.
Bizarre accident takes life of Middle Tennessee State
University student
Senior recording industry major Damien Bell died earlier this
month in an auto-related accident.
According to Al Gaines, friend of the former student, Bell had
stopped for gas at a Shell station after getting off work in Nashville.
Coming out of the gas station, he saw his car rolling forward from
being left in neutral and began to run after it.
He slipped and fell in front of the car. Gaines said his car ran
over him and he died instantly.
"He was a talanted musician, producer and engineer said Rich-
ard Barnet, chairperson of the Recording Industry.
Bell worked as an intern with Cadwell Production Plus, a small
recording and production studio in Nashville and had completed an
internship with Sony Recording Studios in New York City last sum-
Foul odors put professors on the run at the Univer-
sity of South Florida
A bad odor filled a corridor in USF's mathematics and physics
Building. The stench was so bad professors in the area tried to find
alternate routes to their offices.
"It was really bad said Mike Krajcevski, a math professor. "I
thought it was a dead animal stuck in the air conditioning vent
The smell was rancid water that had leaked through the roof of
the physics building. Heavy rain from a cold front caused damage to
the roof, according to Bill Callow, senior engineering technician at
USF Physical Plant. Water leaked through the roam roof at the build-
ing and became sour.
Grant avoided for racist ties
There's a $41,000 research grant available to graduate students
at the University of Oklahoma. But despite a constant need for aca-
demic dollars, the money has gone untouched because of the donor's
ties to the Ku Klux Klan.
The Edwin S. DeBarr grant, named after one of the university's
first faculty members, was given to the school in 1981 and has re-
mained in a bank account since. The original award of $14,714 has
nearly tripled, but students and faculty members say the stigma of
the awani is reason enough to stay away.
DeBarr's family has stipulated that the award be presented in his
name and be used for research in the physical sciences.

The latest studies of campus
populations show that the face of
the typical college student is steadily
changing. As more people over the
age of 25 decide to enter or reenter
the university setting, school offi-
cials are realizing that some changes
should be made to accommodate
this new, "more experienced" class.
According to a recent "Trends
in Adult Learning" report, the num-
ber of students between the ages of
18 and 21 who live on campus and
who go to school full time makes
up only 20 percent of the total popu-
lation of students attending college.
The same report showed that 42
percent of college students are over
the age of 25.
"That's a strikingly high figure

rector for University College. "Of

Students got a taste of geogra-
phy as ECU celebrated the 9th An-
nual National Geography Awareness
Week Nov. 12-18. This year's theme,
"Geography: Passport to the World"
emphasizes discovering other cultures
and places how they are valuable to
us and why we should care about
The North Carolina's Geographic
Alliance and the Department of Ge-
ography at ECU sponsored a lecture
for ECU students, faculty and the
Greenville Community. Dr. William B.
Wood, the director of the Office of
the Geographer and Global Issues,
Bureau of Intelligence and Research,
U.S. Department of the State, made
the presentation entitled "The
Earthmap Initiative" on Nov. 15 .
"National Geography Awareness

campus said Julie Underwood, a new
member of the Geography National

National Geography Awareness
Week is an annual event founded by
Congress to focus attention on the
need to focus more on geography in
schools. A proclamation by Governor
James B. Hunt declared Nov. 12-18,
as National Geography Awareness
Week in North Carolina, and urges
all citizens to honor this observance.
National Geography Awareness
Week was founded because of a 10-
nation gallup survey taken in 1988
and 1989. The results of the survey
showed young Americans scored
lower than all other 18-24-year-olds
surveyed. One in four Americans
could not identify the Soviet Union
or the Pacific Ocean on the world

traditional students are female.
One such student is Lynn Ester,
an undergraduate student who said
she returned to school because she
was not satisfied
with her job as a
secretary. Ester
said she feels she is
a better student
now than she was
20 years ago.
"I'm not pre-
occupied now, wor-
rying about
whether I'll have a

"I'm lucky I'm not
working now, so I
don't have any
problems with my

said that the uni-
versity has been very helpful during
her return.
During late October, Denny at-
tended a conference in Denver, Colo-
rado that was mainly concerned with
bettering university programs for
nontraditional students.
According to Denny, the confer-
ence entitled "Association of Non-Tra-
ditional Students of the Rockies" was
sponsored by Rocky Mountain States

tory of being very supportive to non-
traditional students both on and off

Speakers at the conference in
Denver included various college of-
ficials, employers, consulting firms
and many nontraditional students
who spoke about the changing needs
of today's university.
"One of the major changes the
organization wishes to make said
Denny, "is a greater degree of re-
search. Not enough is known about
this special population to know all
of the changes that have to be made.
"We need to find out the num-
ber of older students, their locations,
and the activities in which they are
involved. There will have to be some
changes made in the university as far
as health care issues are concerned.

Denny said his main purpose in
becoming involved with the organi-

This is not the first time ODK has
walked away from one of these forums
with an agenda. Last year, the prob-
lem of retaining and guiding students,
I especially freshmen, was brought up.
I As a result ODK founded and now
sponsors ECU's mentor program.

the forum was telephone registration,
but a number of participants, includ-
ing deans, spoke of problems such as

plague such systems at other univer-
Another solution to the problem
was to open Christenbury Gym from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for registration. There
would be terminals from every depart-
ment present and each terminal would
have a member from that department
on hand. Students would be able to
talk to someone who actually knows
about department requirements,
changes and courses.
The solution that seemed to get
the most support was to have profes-
sorsadvisors register students. Each
professor would have an on-line com-
puter on his desk (if he or she does
not have one already).
"The best thing to do in my opin-
ion is to put the terminals at the ad-
visers' desks Goodwin said. "That

The forum closed with a discus-
sion about how to make ECU a more

encourage students who place on the
honor rolls, publish scholarly work
and contribute to the department in
other ways.

- Registration
sucks, but no
one seems to
be in a hurry
to improve the
needs to
change �
For those students who have never had a problem with regis-
tration, congratulations, you are in a very elite group. This article
does not pertain to you. In fact, if by some chance you've had
positive registration experiences - STOP READING!
However, for the most of us who have had difficulties read on.
You will be able to relate to what is getting ready to be said.
Most of us at TEC have the biggest problems with "special
permission You know that good old process, in which you must
get "special permission" to get in a required class. The hassle with
this seems to be the fact that when you leave your designated
terminal, you must sprint across campus to wait in yet another
Whew! After you get into the line you realize that half the
people are there for the same reason. No one is guaranteed to get
into these special classes and if it is closed too bad, maybe next
Another complication is being turned away once you get to a
certain terminal. The registration book tells students they can go
to any terminal on campus they desire. Many undecided students
wander to these terminals hoping to wait in a shorter line, only to
find out they are turned down and told to go elsewhere.
What about hassle of many classes being offered with only
one section? Now it would seem to us if there are a lot of students
signing up for a particular class, then another section should be
opened. Some seniors depend on these classes to graduate. It is
really inconvenient to have to re-schedule your classes because a
class you desperately need is closed.
We tossed around the idea to enact a new registration system
like that of UNC-Chapel Hills The process those students follow
is far different from ours. While we must stand in lines, UNC-CH
students simply call on the phone to register for their classes.
We recognize that setting up such a service is no easy feat,
but it is necessary and the process needs to start now. Problems
with any system are inevitable, but life sure would be a lot easier
if someone did something to make registration less of a hassle.
But until then, we'll all (well, most of us) have something to bitch
about - as if financial aid wasn't enough.

No time for learning
Staying up all night to cram for
a test or finish a billion page term
paper is not my cup of coffee. College
has taken its wear on me, physically
as well as emotionally through the
years. I will be leaving in the Spring
with gained knowledge and suppos-
edly prepared for anything the work-
ing world might throw my way - but
I've paid a price. Trying to earn a
bachelor's degree in four years has
given me wrinkles under my eyes, ir-
regular sleeping habits and a deep
respect for students who decide to
continue their education through
graduate school.
I feel as though my education has
been cheated. Because I've been in
such a hurry to finish, I forgot to ask,
"what's it ail for? How does this re-
late?" The truth is (and many will
agree) that I don't care. In four years
I have learned to care solely about
letters on a piece of paper I get two
or three times a year and little else
(besides this publication of course).
Aside from my academics, I have
learned how to network, how to deal
with people and how to respect diver-
sity I never knew existed before col-

The point is, college should be a
learning experience, not an exercise
in time and stress management Theo-
retically, we enroll in a university to
enrich our learning and cultural lives.
So much can be learned from indi-
vidual classes and people, but
oftentimes they are forgotten in the
semester "crunch" time when every-
thing is due in every class.
People who take their time
through school, who only take on
what they think they can handle, are
the ones who truly benefit from their
education goals. They can learn at
their own pace and not necessarily
worry about getting out of the insti-
tutional environment Others, how-
ever, don't care about learning: they
care about getting a degree so they
can get a job that pays substantially
more than minimum wage. The goal
of graduation may be too far ahead
to see, but keep on target use the
force and you'll be fine.
Thankfully, we are not alone in
our mission. Parents, friends and even
the university itself are often available
to give us that push (or kick in the
ass) to stay motivated each semester.
While Career Services and the Coun-
seling Center offer programs and semi-
nars on time and stress management
it is ultimately up to the individual
student to find the methods that work
best For me, staying up all night
drinking massive amounts of caffeine
and being completely wired to take
an exam has worked long enough to
produce promising end results.
Granted, I would have liked to have
taken my time, studied a little each
night and aced every exam through
an acceptable means of learning but
time is no longer on my side.

Well, I hope you forgive me for
mentioning that former Buffalo Bills

Thurman Thomas), but it seems that
reactions across the country have war-
ranted me to use this tired subject
First let's look at a trial that
seemed to be overwhelming. One where
the evidence pointed one way, but the
decision went another. A trial with the
wrong verdict A trial that was decided
because of racism. This trial with racist
jurors was not the Simpson trial. I
am talking about one of hundreds of
trials held in the South during the Jim
Crow era. Little more than 100 years
ago, you had scores of whites that had
lynched, killed, burned and raped Afri-
can-Americans. These people had the
blood on their hands, yet they were set
free, because of race. How soon we for-
Now, this is just one of the many
pervasive forms of discrimination that
has plagued our nation's history. It still
continues today. A black person charged
with committing a crime is three more
times likely to be convicted than his
white counterpart I don't even feel I
have to introduce more evidence to con-
vince you the scales of justice are
pointed towards whites - that is a fact
These types of discrimination are
the historical rationale for affirmative
action. I feel bad for people who write
letters claiming we are trampled against
Honky, please! Whites have had prefer-
ential treatment since the dawn of time.
What a joke to suggest that blacks have
it easier than whites. I have to laugh at
that one.
Why is it that during all of these
Larry Freeman
Opinion Columnist
Jim Crow trials, during all the other
attrocities (as recently as 1988, Ala-
bama didn't allow "negroes" to be State
Troopers), no one yelled and screamed
racism? Yet now, because of the
Simpson verdict you have the media
and white America condemning the
jury and widening the racial divide in
this country.
The gentleman that wrote that let-
ter also referred to the LA. Riots after
the Rodney King case, basically com-
mending whites for not rioting First
of all, Whites did riot but they did their
rioting on the news and in the news-
papers df our country. As far as the
LA. Riots went 1 am in no way justify-
ing them. It was a sad day for America.
However, I have more faith in Af-
rican-Americans than to believe they'd
riot if the verdict went the other way.
You can't compare the King case to
the Simpson case. The Simpson case
was based on circumstantial evidence.
No murder weapon was found, no wit-
nesses and no one can say with 100
percent certainty that OJ. and OJ.
alone did it The King situation was on
tape. It was indisputable, yet the Simi
Valley jury let those thugs go free when
it was right there on videotape. You
can't compare the two cases.
I think we're all glad the O J. trial
is over, but it was important It reminds
us that yes, a majority of cops are good,
honest people, but some of them lie
on the witness stand regularly and
engage in other illegal behavior. It's
also important because it reaffirmed
the strength of our great Constitution.
OJ. Simpson walked into that court-
room presumed an innocent man, as
the Constitution orders, and the pros-
ecution did not prove his guilt beyond
all reasonable doubt. The jurors had
their reasons: the gloves didn't seem
to fit there wasn't enough time, law
enforcement officers lied, there was
evidence of possible tampering let's
not forget there were two whites on
that jury.
It's okay that most of us think he
did it We have freedom of speech, and
certainly, there is a lot of evidence that
points toward it being more likely than
not that he did it Let's respect the
verdict and move on. OJ. at the very
least was a wife batterer, and perhaps
that's where we should focus our an-
ger. Let's just remember we're all in
this boat together, and we're all going
to be together for a long time. Let's
concentrate on coexisting peacefully
and ceasing with all the yelling and
pointing fingers. All of us need to re-
member that, otherwise, we may be in
store for darker days ahead.
Revisions will not alter BSBA program
To the Editor.
The article eititled "Program
Elimination-Imminent" published in
the November 16, 1995 issue of The
East Carolinian may require some
clarification. Although the UNC Gen-
eral Administration mandated review
of low productivity degrees (that is,
programs with relatively few gradu-
ates), institutions were asked to con-
sider other programs also. ECU iden-
tified several additional programs that
had few graduates and some programs
where degree structure had changed.
The degrees in banking and real es-
tate are in the latter category. At one
time, separate degrees in banking and
real estate were offered by ECU. Now
these appear in the undergraduate
catalog along with finance as concen-
trations for the BSBA in finance.
Because the article may have cre-
ated concern about these very produc-
tive programs, I want to emphasize
that no programs within the School
of Business were slated for produc-
tivity review. The revision in no way
alters our BSBA degree or the breadth
of options in this degree program. The
elimination of the degrees in banking
and real estate updates ECU'S pro-
gram inventory to reflect more accu-
rately what has existed for several

Hello. My name is Kevin and I
am a James Bond fan.
Yeah, I know. Not a good thing
to be saying in these politically cor-
rect times. Bond represents, for many
people, a by gone era, an era that saw
Hugh Hefner's Playboy clubs dotting
the landscape, Russ Meyer's large-
busted vixens-on-wheels movies, and
only the stirrings of the feminist move-
ment we know today. Speaking of said
feminists, I have quite a few friends
that criticize me for my enjoyment of
007. It's an extension of my male ego,
they say. Little boys with cool explod-
ing toys to make up for their lack of
maturity, they say. Well, that's why
I'm here: to be cured of this.
Hello. My name is Kevin and I
am a James Bond fan.
There. I said it again. Felt better
that time. You know, I say that I iove
James Bond, but in reality there hasn't
been a really good James Bond movie
in quite a while. That is why I am here:
to completely erase the last of my 007
fandom. To accomplish this, I decided
to go see the latest Bond flick, Gold-
eneye, with its new Bond (Pierce
Brosnan), new look and revamped
'90s awareness. Uh-huh. That's what
they said about Timothy Dalton's
Bond, and it still was only mediocre.
Yep, this Goldeneye thing should do
the trick on me, I thought Oh God,
was I wrong.
This new Bond
movie is good!
Okay. Enough
gushing. Down to
business. Golden-

tiful women, gad-
gets, etc.), man-

lot more, mainly

subtext in a dyna-
mite script Listen ,
to this: the film
begins nine years ago with 007 and
his friend and partner, 006 (Sean
Bean), on a covert operation to de-
stroy a Soviet nerve gas facility.
Things go awry and Bond is forced to
choose between finishing the mission
or rescuing 006, who has been cap-
tured by Russian officer Ourumov
(Gottfried John). Bond chooses the
mission first and 006 dies.
Jump to present Ourumov is now
a general in the new Russia, but wants
the country to go back to communism.
He sides with the mysterious Janus
Syndicate (think international Mafia)
and, with its help, plans to utilize the
Soviet cold war
weapon Golden-
eye to assist in
his plans. What
does Goldeneye
do? Oh, just fire
a nuclear war-
head from space
into the atmo-
sphere causing a
massive electro-
magnetic surge

low it This surge
has the nasty ef-
fect of exploding
mmmmmmmmmmmm anything that
runs off of elec-
tricity. How's that for a nifty plot?
To many people, what will make
or break "Goldeneye" is not the story,
but Pierce Brosnan's portrayal of the
super-suave 007. Everybody should be
happy because Brosnan plays the
character as a shaken-not-stirred
blending of all the other actors who've

No, the real attraction to "The

Who says Greenville is a cultural
All too often complaints can be
heard that there aren't enough artis-
tic opportunities for the "culturally
minded" in Greenville. Well, whoever
is complaining has obviously not at-
tended any of the many events hosted
by the S. Rudolph Alexander Perform-
ing Arts Series. Last year ECU hosted
the Russian National Symphony as
well as many other internationally
known performers, and the tradition
is continuing this year.
For example, tonight at 8 p.m. in
Wright Auditorium, world renowned
pianist Misha Dichter will perform his
distinguished repertoire, including
selections from Mozart, Beethoven,
Brahms, Chopin. Gershwin and many
others. The opportunity to hear
Dichter play is one that should not
be missed.
Dichter was born in Shanghai but
his family moved to Los Angeles when
he was only two years old. At the age
of six, he began taking piano lessons,
beginning a career which has spanned
over 30 years. Since then he has stud-
ied and taught at Juilliard, as well as
teaching clashes at music festivals,
conservatories, and universities - in-
cluding Harvard and the famous
Amsterdam Conservatory.
Dichter has performed for audi-
ences around the world. He has played
with such great orchestras as the
Chicago Symphony, the Atlanta Sym-
phony, The Philadelphia Orchestra
and the St Petersburg Philharmonic
Orchestra. In addition, he has given
recitals at the Academy of Music in
Philadelphia, in Paris, at the Eastern
Music Festival in North Carolina and
has toured many countries including
the United States, France, Brazil and
Mexico. In 1966, he won the
Tchaikovsky Competition in Russia.
Misha Dichter recently signed a
multi-record contract with
MusicMasters Classics, and has al-
ready released his first solo album for
their label. It includes the Variations
and Fugue on a Theme of Handel.
He has also released recordings for
Philips and RCA Records.
Not only is Dichter an accom-
plished musician, he is also a talented
writer and has had many articles pub-
lished in The New York Times, along
with many other reputable publica-
tions. He also has a talent for sketch-
ing, and his works have been exhib-
ited in art galleries in New York City.
Dichter will be performing in
Wright Auditorium this evening. Tick-

Christmas was originally a
pagan holiday. Nof the celebration
of the birth of Christ you under-
stand, but the date. Dec. 25. It was
a feast holiday of some sort when
our heathen ancestors got to-
gether to eat, drink, be merry and
carouse til dawn. It was the
mother of ail parties, not unlike
downtown Greenville on Hallow-
When the Christian church
spread north via the Holy Roman
Empire, the Christian missionar-
ies were shocked by the pagans'
behavior. They knew they had an
uphill battle ahead of them if they
were going to convert these he-
donistic folk to the ways of the
Lord. So, they stepped in and told
the pagans that they would no
longer be celebrating the feast on
Dec 25, but the birth of Christ
After a few pagan skulls were
cracked by the missionaries' Ro-
man guards, some bright pagan
asked, "Can we still have the
orgy?" The weary missionaries be-
grudgingly said yes, and so the
pagans agreed to celebrate this
new holiday of Christmas. Though
still pagans at heart they were
now Christians by name, and the
soldiers more or less left them
alone (except at tax time).
As the years and generations
passed, the former pagans came
to accept Christianity and Christ-
mas. The winter feast was forgot-
ten. Christianity rode on the backs
of expanding empires, leading to
the discovery and colonization of
a new continent and ultimately
to the founding of America.
Christmas has survived all
this time, a celebration now as old
as the winter feast it replaced. But
now it's under attack by another
new-but-similar holiday called X-
Mas. A holiday of capitalism, X-Mas
celebrates merchandising. It rev-
els not in the joy of giving, but
the thrill of buying. It's a shop-
ping holiday with a name that
denotes its ultimate meaningless-
ness. X-Mas, the generic holiday.
And like our pagan ancestors,
whose happy orgy was set upon
and slowly changed by the Chris-
tian missionaries, we've allowed
the retail missionaries to change
Christmas. Whereas Christmas
has a tradition of 12-day celebra-
tion, X-Mas is the ever-expanding
holiday; it gets longer every year.

jproximately 10-15 pounds over the
holiday season (Thanksgiving
through New Year's Day).
� However, there are some ways
to avoid some of this excess bag-
gage (weight) that tends to stick
around (the stomach or thigh area)
after the holidays.
According to Suzanne
Schlosberg (Cooking Light), the
following 14 suggestions will help
you to avoid gaining the extra
1. Don't deny yourself. If you're
craving something, eat it Oust a
small amount), or else you may end
up eating the whole thing.
2. Be selective. Instead of gorg-
ing on every dish, look at the whole
table and decide what is going to
be the most satisfying for your
3. Move. Be sure to exercise,
exercise exercise!
4. Eat regular meals, especially
breakfast. Satisfy your hunger
early, instead of saving those calo-
ries for the big feastparty.
5. Avoid temptation. Do not
keep high fat, or tempting foods out
in a convenient location (candies on
the coffee table, at work, etc.). In-
stead, keep healthy snacks in your
refrigerator or in your desk at work.
6. Rejoice in the holiday spirit.
Think about the reason for the sea-
son (love, giving, spiritual beliefs,
tc), and don't place the focus on

to eating in unhealthy ways (disor-
dered eating).
8. Get your sleep. Don't turn
to food to get your get up and go
when a nap will do you a lot more
9. Cook low-fat foods. Read la-
bels, substitute high-fat food items
with low-fat food items (apple sauce
for oil, egg whites for whole eggs,
skim milk for whole milk, etc.).
10. Take smaller portions.
Smaller portions are better, and
you can always make a second trip.
11. Eat slowly. Be eating
slower, the body has more of a
chance to metabolize so the body
feels more satisfied.
12. Stop eating when you're
satisfied. Do not get to the point
where you feel you are "stuffed

cohol stimulates the appetite -
enough said!
14. Don't strive for perfection.
Get back on track if you do overeat
or skip exercising. Do not put your
healthy habits off until after the
holiday season or the pounds will
definitely add up.

into consideration, especially when

ew adjustments. First off, Dan

ronounce his words. Lyrics can be

Although these songs are
lummable and catchy, no one can
mderstand a damn thing Phillips
s saying.
Secondly, let the drummer ex-
pand his repertoire. The bass player
and keyboardist are good musi-
cians, and it's a sure thing that the
drummer is too, so why not let him
have some room on that stage?
Boy Wonder is touring now

though they've played in Raleigh,

in Greenville, and they want to. To

a good thing to support a North
Carolina band, especially one that
has as much potential as this one.

No, this is not a synopsis of the be-

female hiker but a raccoon. The opening
scene of Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
sets the tone for the film: goofy parodies
of various films without ever finding its
own voice.
When Jim Carrey made the origi-

salary would force the filmmakers to craft
a witty story to surround Ace's antics. I
should have known better!
The simplistic story in Ace Ventura-
When Nature Calls involves the disap-
pearance of a sacred bat The albino bat
serves as a tribal good luck charm and
when the bat disappears, a civil war
threatens to erupt Ace Ventura arrives
to ensure that the bat is returned before
any blood is spilled. The mystery of the
bat's disappearance nominally provides
the driving force behind the film, the
real story is how many different ways the
filmmakers can find for Carrey to gross
out the audience.
Ace fights his way out of the rear
end of a mechanical rhino while tourists
look on; Ace feeds a baby bird by regur-
gitating into the bird's mouth; Ace makes
jokes about his sexual organs, telling an
airline attendant that "it's bulky but 1

light ofDumb and Dumbervs that the
gross-out jokes are all Oue has to choose
from. My 12-year-old nephew would find
this amusing, I do not
The Hollywood parodies are only
amusing in slight ways. Numerous films
are mentioned in the storyline or are di-
rectly parodied: Chitty Chitty Bang
Bang, The Shawshank Redemption, The
Wizard ofOz, The Twilight Zone and
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The ref-
erences appear at random with no real
intention of paying homage to the film.
The writer (and director), Steve Oedekerk
uses the references as a way to elicit some
laughs with very little work on his part
The strategy fails.
The animal rights stance that Ace
espouses in the film is admirable and
results in a few funny scenes, but the
destruction of forests that Ace willfully
engages in makes him a hypocrite. This
film need not be politically correct but it
should at least strive for consistency.
One critic of the Marx brothers said
that the brothers never made a film as
wonderful as them. I fear that the same
cannot be said of Jim Carrey. Perhaps
Dumb and Dumber is as wonderful as
Carrey can be.
Batman Forever may have given
Carrey a great role but I was already tired
of him after seeing that film. With the
release of Ace Ventura- When Nature
Calls I have reached a state of ennui.
On a scale of one to Q,Ace Ventura

(an X-Mas holy shrine) before Hal-
loween. I was shopping for some
ghoulish black costume stuff and
walked right into the festively gar-
ish green and red of X-Mas.
Now some may call me a Grinch
(the Satan of X-Mas). but that's just
too damn early. I need Halloween
to purge me of the morbidity I col-
lect all year like so much evil navel
lint so that 1 can enjoy the spirit of
Christmas. Likewise, 1 need Thanks-
giving as a festive warm-up for the
virtual good-will-to-man A-bomb
Christmas represents. There's a rea-
son these holidays are spaced a
month apart.
But we've let the skull-cracking
goons of capitalism push X-Mas on
us for so long now that I'm not sure
Christmas exists as anything more
than a memory. Kind of like the way
we see only a pale echo of our an-
cestors' pagan orgies in our mod-
ern Christmas celebrations. I mean,
I can't really remember a Christmas
that lasted only 12 days.
And it's in reflection on my X-
Mas childhood that this gets really
scary. As insidious as X-Mas seems
now, it gave me some of my favorite
childhood memories. Silly String
fights with my brother on X-Mas
morning. Zip. my life-long stuffed
animal monkey companion. Weird
puppet animation X-Mas TV specials
("Bumbles bounce).
So now I wonder if I ever cel-
ebrated Christmas at all. Has X-Mas
overtaken us, like Christmas over-
took our pagan ancestors? Have the
Christmas traditions of family, food
and good cheer gone the way of the
winter orgy, faded memories of a
world just past?
In answer, I leave you with this:
I remember finding out as a child
about the Jewish holiday of Hanuk-
kah. Intrigued, I asked my mother,
"Do Jewish people believe in Santa
Claus?" She wasn't sure. Come to
think of it, neither ani I.

BOND from page 5
portrayed Bond, while including his
own twists. He pulls off the brooding
physicality of Connery, but is more lithe
and catlike. He can do Moore's tongue-
in-cheek line delivery, but not as cheesy.
He also has the well-acted edginess that
Dalton brought to the character. And
what qualities of one-time-only Bond,
George Lazenby? Well. Brosnan is also
The rest of the cast are just as
amazing, especially the women. To pre-
vious actresses' credit, the part of the
Bond love interest has almost always
been a bane to any serious actress.
These Bond actresses realize that, es-
sentially, they are almost always an
accessory, like a nice tie. This film turns
that idea on its ear with the character
Natalya Simonova (Izabella Scorupco).
Bond needs Natalya and her computer
skills to finish the Goldeneye satellite,
not just for a roll in the hay. Also a
nice change, Natalya is a believable
fighter, handling herself very well
physically, as well as engaging in ver-
bal sparring with Bond. Bond tradition-
alists take heart she does still coo, "Oh,
James as silly and inappropriate as it
may be.
On the flip side, we have Xenia
Onatopp (Famke Janssen). Xenia is a
fantastic character and perhaps one of
the best Bond villains to ever grace the
screen. As second in command of Ja-
nus, Xenia is a deadly former Soviet
agent and military pilot whose main
way of disposing of victims is to, get
this, squeeze them between her legs
until their spine snaps! Yes! This char-
acter is a nod to all of the great vil-
lains of the Bond films of the '60s, and
Janssen injects some '90s zing into the
part having Xenia close to orgasm ev-
ery time she is called on to kill. I'm
sure someone will have a problem with
that, but not me.
Also worth mentioning (last but
not least) are Sean Bean's portrayal of
the doomed 006, suave and cutting to
the last, and Dame Judi Dench as
Bond's new boss, a nicely done nod to
these modern times.
Not only will these characters ap-
peal to all fans, but the rest of the movie
works just as well, utilizing all of the
varied Bond film elements fans have
come to expect (a trick the makers of
Batman Forever failed miserably at).
The only times the film suffers are
when it decides to take a gag, stunt
idea, etc. way too far, which was a seri-
ous problem in the Bond films of the
70s and '80s.
To see a great example of this,
compare the opening sequence stunt
and the chase scene in St Petersburg
as bad and good examples of taking
stunts too far. Another example? Char-
acters are constantly telling Bond that
he is a "dinosaur a relic from the cold
war and should just give up. The
screenwriters are trying to draw this
parallel that the Goldeneye threat is a
cold war relic and therefore Bond is
the only one best suited to deal with
it It takes a thief to catch a thief, and
so on. But enough already! Every char-
acter Bond comes in contact with ei-
ther calls him a relic or a misogynist
We know he is! He knows he is!
At one point the film's main vil-
lain, Janus, says to Bond, "The only
ones in attendance at your funeral will
be Moneypenny and a few teary-eyed
restaurateurs Funny line, but I don't
share that sentiment I have given up
trying not to be a Bond fan. I will con-
tinue to be critical of the Bond fran-
chise and mutter with disgust when
they screw up. Goldeneye, however, is
no screw up, and could perhaps be one
of the best James Bond films to date,
despite its flaws.
On a scale of one to 10, "Golden-
eye" rates a nine.

Eight down, one to go

of Memphis 31-17 to put the finish-
ing touches on an 8-3 record before

It was no secret that there was
going to be an unfriendly meeting
when the Pirates faced the Memphis
Tigers for the season finale. The Pi-
rates were looking to thump the 3-7
Tigers and impress the national vot-
ers enough to get into the top 25.
That's not all.
Along with it being senior day
and the seven home game winning
streak on the line (five this season
and two carried over from last sea-
son), many Pirate fans as well as play-
ers, remember the last time the Ti-
gers rolled into Greenville.
Times have changed along with
Memphis State's name, as ECU made
it two in a row against the Tigers to
wrap up an impressive 8-3 Liberty
Bowl season.
Despite the Tigers 3-7 record
coming into the contest, Pirate play-
ers and coaches knew that this con-
test could get ugly, because of the
history between the two squads
along with other "inspirational" fac-
"There has always been bad
blood between us and Memphis, ever
since the series started said senior
cornerback Hank Cooper.
That was evident in the numer-
ous penalties called on both teams,
but it was the Pirates who seemed
to keep the cooler head when it
"The coaches told us that they
would come in here and do a lot of
talking and that we couldn't let it get

dumb mistakes and did our share of
talking, but
we took care

Morris Foreman. "It feels good to

Despite a few early miscues, it
was the seniors who stepped up for
the Pirates down the stretch. It was
evident in the aggressive play by the
seniors that this contest was more
than just the last game before the
Liberty Bowl.
This is where it got .messy. By
the attitude expressed by the Mem-
phis team including an ejection of
Tiger defensive end Rod Mason, it is

obvious they knew exactly who ECU
was, but there was only one problem:
The voters.
As crazy as it seems, the Pirates
not only had to beat Memphis, they
had to beat them decisively. Through-
out the season it
seemed as if the
Bucs were shunned
by the top 25 voters.
It is true the Pirates
had their share of
breakdowns that
could warrant the
voters not to put,
them in the top 25,
but these same vot-
ers must not be see-
ing the same eight
wins that I'm seeing.
"I know East
Carolina is not
known throughout the country, but
I thought after beating Syracuse that
we deserved some recognition
added Foreman.
I am as perplexed as Foreman.
Last time I checked, the same Syra-
cuse team that ECU beat in the infa-
mous Carrier Dome, earlier this sea-
son, was vying for the Big East cham-
pionship. Let's not forget the victory
in New York over the same Army Ca-
det squad that thumped Boston Col-
lege and had the opportunity to tie
or beat Notre Dame. Hmm, that
sounds like top 25 material to me.
This just antes up the pot await-
ing the Pirates in Memphis.
A matchup between the Redskins and the Seahawks on
Sunday, Nov. 19 proved to be a big day for former Pirate
Carlester Grumpier, a tight end for ECU from
'8993. Crumpler caught his first touchdown pass in the
NFL against the Redskins. Crumpler threw the TD ball to
his mother. ECU was well represented by Crump's
brother who was sporting an ECU T-shirt. Carlester's father said he
was happy for him, and that his son had worked hard and he finally
got the opportunity to score.
Push 'em up!
ECU cheerleaders do push-ups after every point the Pirates put on the board. The
squad alternates who does the push-ups between the female and male cheerleaders.

turkey, before it was time to head to
New York for the Cornell Tourna-
The Lady Pirates faced St.
Francis in the first game and were
defeated 81-67. Junior Laurie
Ashenfelder led the Pirates in scor-
ing contributing 15 points and seven

Blackmon and Danielle Charlesworth
both had 12 points, while Juniors
Justine Allpress and Tracey Kelley
had 10 points. Junior Shay Hayes and
Blackmon crashed the boards and
each pulled down six rebounds.
The Pirates shot .458, while St

Francis came away with the victory
and sent the Pirates to play Lafayette

Against Lafayette, the Pirates

Blackmon exploded for 18 points,

majority of their offensive output in
the third quarter. Crandell scored on
an 8-yard keeper, and threw an 18-
yard pass to Larry Shannon on a post
pattern to put ECU up 24-10 after
three quarters.
It was Crandeli's only TD pass
of the day, and he still needs one
more to tie Jeff Blake's record of 43
career touchdown passes.
Also in third quarter action,
freshman linebacker Roderick
Coleman showed that he will be a
force of the future when he
blindsided Anderson with a sack that
cost the Tigers 10 yards.
McPhaii saw pay dirt again in the
fourth quarter, when the Clinton,
N.C. native scored on a 46-yard burst
up the middle.
Memphis got one more on the
board when back up quarterback
Joe Borich scored on a 1-yard run
with 8:29 to play in the game. Mem-
phis has used three different quar-
terbacks in their offensive set this
It was Senior Day, and the Pi-
rate upperdassmen rose to the oc-
casion. The veteran offfensive line
for the Pirates blew open the holes
that gave McPhaii the opportunity
to rack up his 209 yards.
"A lot of people doubted the of-
fensive line this year said senior
center Kevin Wiggins.
"Today we wanted to run the
ball, and we got it done. All the yards
that Jerris got makes the win all that
"I give all the credit to the of-
fensive line. They played great to-
day McPhaii said.
After the game, Liberty Bowl
Director Bob Martin issued the of-
ficial invitation to Steve Logan and
his troops to be the home team in
the Dec. 30 contest Logan gladly
accepted the invite and asked all
Pirate fans far and wide to make
the trip and "paint Memphis
The Pirates have now had a
week off for Thanksgiving, and will
look to the Cardinal of Stanford
and the Libery Bowl. Last year's
defeat by Illinois, however, has not
been forgotten.
"Last year we were
embarassed McPhaii said. "It
sticks with us
Senior defensive tackle Walter
Scott looks to change things this
time around.
"My mind is focused Scott
said. "I'm ready to head on down
to Memphis and take care of busi-
ness by any means necessary
AP -Former ECU quarterback
Jeff Blake, waited about as long as
he could to extend his streak of
touchdown passes Sunday.
Blake threw a 5-yard scoring
pass to Carl Pickens with 17 sec-
onds remaining as the Cincinnati
Bengals rallied for a 17-13 victory
over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It was the 19th straight game
with a TD pass for Blake, who en-
tered the game with an AFC-lead-
ing 23 for the season.
Blake completed only 19 of 39
passes for 210 yards, with three
first-half interceptions. Steve
Beuerlein, starting for the Jaguars
in place of the injured Mark
Brunei completed 18 of 34 for 245
yards against the NFL's worst pass
defense. The Jaguars managed only
295 yards overall.

On behalf of Pitt County AIDS Service

I would like to thank the East Carolina
University community for their out-
standing participation and support of
AIDS Awareness Month (October). With
the cooperation of the Office of Health
Promotion & Well Being and Student
Health Services, PICASO was able to
help organize a variety of workshops
on HIVAIDS issues, as well as the cam-
pus wide CAN AIDS food drive. Over
1200 can food and personal items were
donated to our food pantry, with spe-
cial donations made by Health 1000
classes, Jones Hall, Phi Sigma Pi, and
other sororities and fraternities. This
generous donation will help keep the
food pantry shelves full for the year to
come. Many of the services PICASO
provides to our clients and the com-
munity would not be possible without
ECU students, faculty, and staff. I
would again like to thand East Caro-
lina University for continously playing
a role in providing HIVAIDS educa-
tion and prevention to our community
and challenge you to continue in the
