spent at least $30,000 to improve
security in response to two Decem-
ber shootings on campus.
Harry Ghee, acting vice chan-
cellor for business and finance, said
the school spent S40.000 on 14
emergency call boxes to be installed
around campus Monday. Anvone

ROXBORO, N.C. (AP) - The city
manager quit the job he held less
than a year after officials found out
that he lied about earning a college
degree.
The city council accepted the
immediate resignation of Ken
Kortness at a council meeting Sat-
urday night. Kortness had said he
received a bachelor's degree in busi-
ness from the University of Wash-
ington, but officials said he admit-
ted he did not. The Herald-Sun of
Durham reported Sunday.
Mayor Lois Mclver Winstead
called the weekend council meeting
after reading a published report
about the false information. The city
requires a four-year degree to apply
for the post.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN. K.I. (AP)
- About 11.000 lobsters coated with
heating oil and dozens of blackened
birds flopped on shore as oil spread
from a leaking barge that ran
aground off a wildlife refuge.
More than 828,000 gallons has
spilled since the barge got stuck in
a storm Friday, creating a rainbow-
sheen that stretches for 12 miles.
And while it is still leaking, it's
leaking at a much lesser rate. About
1.2 million gallons of oil had been
pumped into another barge Sunday
and crews got into position this
morning to pump the remainder.
The barge had been carrying 4 mil-
lion gallons.
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Six illegal
immigrants stopped by federal
agents near the Mexican border ran
away in the dark and fell off a 120-
foot cliff, the Border Patrol said. One
man died and the others were in-
jured.
The FBI is looking into the Sat-
urday night accident to make sure
proper procedures were followed.

MOSCOW (AP) - President
Boris Yeltsin reportedly said Mon-
day that he likely will be a candi-
date in elections in June. It was the
strongest indication yet he would
seek re-election.
Yeltsin, who has acted like a
candidate since returning to the
Kremlin following a two-month ab-
sence caused by heart trouble, said
he will announce a final decision
next month on seeking a second five-
year term.
Vandals target parking lots across city
Stereos, CDs are

����Hi
Larceny from vehicles has re-
cently become a major problem in the
city of Greenville and on the ECU
campus.
From January 1-16. the
Greenville Police department has had
a reported 83 cases of larceny. The
ECU Police Department has had 12.
five of which occurred over the week-
end of January 13-15.
In a majority of cases, victims
are leaving valuables in plain view.
Items taken are mostly stereos, ste-
reo equipment and compact disks.
Other items include cellular phones
and personal belongings.
Vehicle damage has also been
reported in some of these rases,
mostly broken glass.
These crimes have occurred in
all areas of the city. The Greenville
Police Department reported there are
no prevalent areas for these crimes.
One of the main parking areas on
campus that is being hit is Curry
Court located behind the Kmart
Plaza. Reade Street lots are also
highly affected.
Junior Mysti Stein said she
thinks the ECU police should focus
on this problem.
They should put more people
out on patrol with a primary focus
on student lots, especially freshman
and Minges Stein said. "The money
that we pay for university fees, we
should feel safe and know that when
we leave our automobiles, they will
be the same way when we come
back
ECU Police Chief Teresa Crocker
said the University will put officers
out in the lots to observe as they have
in the past.
"We are looking to do different
things with Parking and Traffic, such
as putting some cameras up in areas
of the lots so that we can monitor
the problem Crocker said. "The de-
partment will then have an extra set
of eyes here at the station that can
zero in on specific lots
The Greenville Police Depart-
ment wants to make the public aware
of this problem.
"The department is working in
different locations staking this par-
ticular problem out said Officer Wil-
liam Harris of the Greenville Police
Department. "One thing the public

can do is to make us aware of their
suspicions, call and let us know if you
see something. If people remove their
valuable items, it decreases the prob-
ability of cars being broken into
Junior Kimberly Delmar said she
believes it is mainly our own respon-
sibility to protect our vehicles.
"I don't think it is as much the
officer's responsibility as it is the
people's, "said Delmar. "Generally, if
there is nothing in sight of value,
then there is no reason why some-
one would want to break into your
vehicle to begin with
Crocker suggests that students
and faculty should try to park in well
lit areas and not in the back of the
lots. When you see things that are
suspicious, pick up a blue phone and
call an officer to come check it out.
"People need to realize that
things that go on outside the bound-
aries of this campus can and prob-
ably will happen here Crocker said.
N i recent arrests have been made
regarding the issue of larceny from
vehicles by the Greenville or ECU
Police Departments.
Anyone with information on
these crimes, please call Greenville
Police at 8304315, ECU Police at 328-
6787 or Crime Stoppers at 758-7777.

Fires spark at top
of college hill
Staff Writer
College hill residents witnessed
loud sirens and flashing lights on
Thursday. Jan. 18. after an assist res-
cue turned bizarre.
ECU Police Chief Teresa
Crocker said the incident which in-
volved Public Safety, the rescue
squad and the Station One Fire De-
partment happened around 6 p.m.
"They Belk had a female stu-
dent who needed to be transported
to the hospital Crocker said.
Whenever the rescue squad is
called the fire department is also re-
quired to come to the scene.
Crocker said that while the tire
department was on the scene, a
dumpster on the north of Belk Hall
was set on fire.
"Somebody probably just
flipped a cigarette into it said
David Fair, coordinator of Belk Hall.
Then, as the firemen attempted
to extinguish the dumpster, the fire
truck caught on fire in front of Jones
and Aycock Residence Halls. An ex-
tinguisher was used to contain the
truck fire. Another fire truck had
to be called to the scene to take care
of the fire. As a result, one lane of
College Hill Drive was temporarily
closed off to traffic to prevent cars
from running into the disabled
truck.
"That Situation was a rarity
said Battalion Chief Jeff Walker of
the Station One Fire Department
located on Fifth Street.
Walker said a short in an en-
gine wire caused the problem. The
truck was soon towed back to the
fire station, and traffic was back to
normal on college hill.

After a five-year suspension from campus, the Epsi-
lon Vcta chapter of the Omega Psi Pin fraternity will he
reinstated A enough interest is generated during the sign-
up peril id.
According to Dean of Students Ron Speier, if enough
males on campus show interest g hapter

Currently leading the efforts to reopen the Epsilon
Veta chapter is James Ebron, a spokesperson for Epsi-
lon Veta chapter, who said the chapter's return to cam-
pus depends on responses received from students.
"We are doing this type of sign-up on a one-time basis,
because we are trying to determine if there is enough inter-
est to warrant a return Ebron said.
Ebron said because this chapter of the fraternity, which
shares purple and gold with the university as its official
colurs. has been inactive for so long, this type of call for
applicants is the only logical way to begin evaluations so
the chapter can he reopened.
"Five years ago, the fraternity aid not follow univer-
sity and fraternal rules about behavior on campus Ebron
said, "and because they engaged in activities not condoned
by campus regulations, the chapter was closed

warning example ti� the new chapter, and the fraternity

upon it.

series centers around selected readings

"We felt that in addition to our
guest speakers and regular programs

student participation for the circle's
first meeting
"We had quite a few students
show up at the first meeting, which
seemed very promising" Watson said,
adding that he expects some new faces
at the next meeting in addition to the
16-2H students who attended the Nov.

Members of ECU'S Computer In-

friend, George Abeyounis, as energetic
and always willing to lend a helping
hand.
"George was very outgoing said

Abeyouonis died on the evening
of Jan. 10, the result of a heart at-
tack. He was 40-years-old.
He is survived b"y"riis wife
Tammy, and two daughters, Kristen
and Danielle.
Professionally, George was the
supervisor of the CIS' PC repair shop
and responsible for the sound systems
at the ECU football and basketball
games.
According to friends and co-work-
ers, George was a master at fixing
anything.
"He was a 'Mr. Fix-It Price said.
"Whether it was computers, eye-
glasses, whatever, George could do it"
Colleagues said his talents
and capabilities will be missed and not
easiiy replaced.
"Speaking as his friend and man-
ager, his breadth of knowledge was
so great said Thorn Lamb, associate
director of CIS. "Without him there
will be a great void, and I don't know
if we can fill it"
Lamb said in addition to his pro-
fessional abilities, George's good na-
ture will also be missed.
"George was always doing things
for people, both at work and in his
neighborhood Lamb said. "He

In memory of their friend, the
CIS department decided to donate a
savings bond, collected through con-
tributions, to the surviving children.
But because of the overwhelm-

said that the money for the children
will be invested in another way.
"I need to speak with his wife
Lamb said. "She would have a better
idea of where the money should go
The department will also name
one of their scholarships in his honor.
The funerai was held at 2p.m. on
Jan. 13 at the Bethel Methodist
Church, which was filled to capacity.
"George was one of the most re-
spected and loved members of our
family in CIS, and we will miss him

Electric savings for campus, community

ECU has signed a contract with
Greenville Utilities Commission
(GUC) to install 3.2 megawatts of
generating capacity on campus.
Assistant Vice Chancellor of
Business Affairs Dr. George W.
Harrell handles facility-related busi-
ness dealing with ECU.
"The contract requires GUC to
install two 1,600 kilowatt generators
that will be used to reduce the de-
mand charge for electricity during
the peak hours" Harrell said.
ECU'S power bill consists of two
major portions: peak demand
charges and kilowatt usage. The
amount of each is almost equal on
a monthly basis. The peak demand
is the highest one-hour period each
month. Peak charges amount to a
significant portion of the
university's annual power bill, total-
ling $2.2 million.
"It is so expensive to run things
during the peak hour Harrell said.
"It cost us $18.75 for one hour to
run a 100 watt light bulb
Under the terms of the contract,
ECU will save $143,000 per year.
Each month GUC will credit ECU
with $11,917 for the power being
saved.
"ECU is being paid $11,917
each month by GUC, and we don't
have to invest anything" Harrell
said.
GUC is buying the generators
with their money and the university
is sharing the savings. After oper-
ating and generator costs, ECU and
GUC are splitting the savings
5050.
Students will also
directly see the sav-
ings from the agree-
ment, as it will help
control the cost of
renting on campus
housing.
"If we can clip
our peak
costs.which are the
most expensive, it helps everyone
in the community, not just ECU
Harrell said.
Cutting the cost of the power
usage of ECU will also benefit the
Greenville community, as the sav-
ings will be passed on to other area
residents.
"This is certainly a win-win situ-
ation and is indicative of the value
of coopera-
tive ef-
forts
be-


tween the uni-
versity and local
government
i Harrell said.
The contract
" was signed Dec. 8,
and GUC has nine
months to have the units
in place. However, Harrell said they
were hoping to have them ready
before the summer peak hits.

ing. According to Watson, having spe-
cific questions to accompany the read-
ing assures that students will contribute
what they got from the readings.
"We should have some really en
lightened discussions Benson-Clayton
said. "The intent of the program is to
bring students together in a book circle
type of gathering in a relaxed atmosphere
where they can discuss African Ameri-
can literature from an historical and edu-
cational approach
According to Watson and Benson-
Clayton, the reading list will include writ-
ings from 1700's and 1800's, such as A
Narrative of the Life of Frederick Dou-
glas and Equiano's Travels.
"The reading circle is open to all
who are interested, and we encourage
students to become a part of the group
to enjoy some intellectual conversation
Watson said.
Watson added that the meetings of
the discussion circle will be held on the
fourth Tuesday of every month. The next
meeting will be held tonight at 5 p.m. at
the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center.

Survey reveals freshmen psyche
CPS - Jason Enzler. a freshman
at National Catholic University in
Washington, said he expected students
to be more interested in politics. In-
stead he sees a lot of apathy on his
campus.
According to a newly released sur-
vey of college freshman, Enzler's ex-
perience is not unusual. Today's col-
lege freshman report they have little
passion for social issues and political
reform, while rising numbers said they
believe individuals are powerless to
make a difference in society.
Researchers at University of Cali-
fornia at Los Angeles's Higher Educa-
tion Research Institute found students
who consider "keeping up with politi-
cal affairs" one of their life's goals
dropped this year to an all-time low of
28.5 percent The high. 57.8 percent
was reached in 1966.
"This continuing erosion of stu-
dents' political interest should be a red
flag to all of us who believe in the
democratic process said survey direc-
tor Alexander Astin, professor at
UCLA's Graduate School of Education
and Information Studies. "Apparently,
increasing political apathy goes hand-
in-hand with disengagement from so-
cial action and growing sense of pow-
erlessness
Fewer of today's freshman cared
about "influencing social values" (38.2
percent as opposed to 43.3 percent in
1992), "cleaning up the environment"
(22.5 percent from 33.6 percent), "in-
fluencing the political structure" (17.2
percent from 20. percent), "promoting
racial understanding (33.4 percent
from 42 percent), and "participating
in a community action program" (23
percent from 26.1 percent).
And, the percentage of freshmen
who think one person 'can do little to
change society" rose to nearly 34 per-
cent - a 10-year-high, surveyors said.
Predictably, the number of students
who discuss politics frequently was aiso
at the lowest point ever: 14.8 percent
The fall survey, sponsored by the
American Council on Education; was
given to 323,791 entering freshman at
641 two-year and four-year institutions.
Of these, 240,083 questionnaires from
437 college and universities were used.
The institution then weighted the data
in an effort to make it reflective of the
views of the nation's 1.5 million col-
lege freshman.
Kazim Ali, vice president of the
United States Association (USSA), said
there has been a wave of activism
among students this year who are bat-
tling federal student aid cuts or cam-
paigning for the restoration of affirma-
tive action policies within the Univer-
sity of California system. But, he added,

he's not surprised it students feel as if
the political system isn't working for
them.
"Students were courted by one po-
litical party, then another, and no one
has delivered on their promises. No
wonder students have become disillu-
sioned Ali said.
"Look at the na- ��-����-
tional political
scene. What role
models do students
have in the Ameri-
can political sys-
tem?"
In 1992, a
record number of
students voted in
the election, with
29 percent of Presi-
dent Clinton's sup-
port coming from
18-to 24-year olds.
Ali said MTV's
Rock the Vote and
the Clinton cam-
paign were both
successful in con-
vincing young mmmummmmmmmmm
people to get out
and vote.
"But nothing panned out Ali
said. "Issues that mattered to young
people - universal health care, lifting
the ban on gays in the military - have
been taken away. Now as Congress
continues to chip away at direct lend-
ing, students are becoming more dis-
enchanted
At the same time, more freshman
students are describing their political
values as "middle of the road" (54.3
percent) than in recent years. And while
those who called themselves "liberal"
or "conservative" decreased, those who
labeled themselves belonging to the
"far left" (2.7 percent) and the "far
right" (1.6 percent) reached all-time
highs.
"For the first time in the history
of the survey, we have a situation where
the large majority of young people are
moving toward the center at the same
time the small minorities at the ex-
tremes are growing Astin said.
There "middle-of the-road" values
are moving students in two directions
on social issues. They are becoming

tion legal as opposed to 64.9 percent

On the lib-
eral side, the be-
lief that homo-
sexual relation-
ships should be
prohibited has declined to an all-time
low of 30.6 percent And support for
legalizing marijuana reached a 15-year
high 33.8 percent
Although most college freshmen
think race should be given special con-
sideration in college admissions, only
half answering an annual survey dis-
agreed with the statement: "Affirma-
tive action in college admissions should
be abolished
Researchers found that 70 percent
surveyed in its 30th national report
said race should be given at least "some
special consideration" by admissions
officers.
Students were �plit 50-50, though,
when the question contained the words
affirmative action said Linda Sax,
the survey's associate director.
Support for race-based admissions
was greatest at historically African
American colleges and universities
(90.3 percent) and lowest at four-year
universities (65 percent); opinions held
no matter which racial or ethnic group
was being considered and whether stu-
dents surveyed attended public or pri-
more conservative about support for vate schools.
"Despite widespread attacks on
affirmative action, college freshman -
the very people who most recently ex-
perienced the admissions process -
support the use of diverse criteria m
admissions Sax said.
In addition to race, freshman also
said admissions directors Should con-
sider academic achievement (96.1 per-
cent), economic background (96 per-
cent), athletic ability (84.5 percent) and
citizenship status (86.4 percent). More
than half, or 58.3 percent, also think
children of alumni should get special
consideration.
More freshman (9.7 percent) also
intend to pursue education careers
than in the previous two decades. In-
terest in studying engineering and law,
meanwhile, few to their lost points (6.4
percent and 3.4 percent respectively).
During their senior years in high
school, students reported that they
spent increasingly less time on academ-
ics and more time exercising, playing
sports or working at part-time jobs.
More than three-fourths (77 percent)
spent six hours or more each week
socializing, while 62.7 percent worked
more than six hours a week.
The increased time spent working
in high school may reflect students'
overwhelming concern (71.4 percent)
that they have enough money to fin-
ish college. With students receiving less
financial assistance from their families
and government aid drying up, fresh-
men increasingly relied on loans to pay
their school bills. Nearly 40 percent
said they will have to get a job to help
cover expenses.
Enzler said he and other freshmen
like him worry about how they will
come up with the cash to pay for
school. But he said, he doesn't let it
get him upset.
"I worry about it but I figure I'll
be making a lot of money when 1 get
out Enzler said.
He has some loan and scholarship
money from the school and has a work-
study job.
Freshman women reported that
they were more likely to spend one to
five hours a week studying, participat-
ing in student groups, taking care of
children or households, performing

The East Carolinian
Adelphi University
president investigated
(AP) - Ten years ago, when Pe-
ter Diamandopoulos took over as
president.of Adelphi University in
Garden City N.Y he set out to trans-
form the humdrum school into an Ivy
League-style institution educating
tomorrow's movers anu shakers.
He recast the required curricu-
lum to emphasize the classics, brought
renowned intellectuals in to lecture
and fired or reassigned scores of pro-
fessors. He launched an advertising
blitz declaring: "Harvard: the Adelphi
of Massachusetts
Facing a deficit of several million
dollars, he cut staff, eliminated ath-
letic programs, shuttered the college
radio station and even rationed copier
Daper. The deficit has turned into a
fat reserve fund.
That thrift didn't extend to him-
self, however.
His salary is now $524,000, after
an increase of 28 percent last year,
the second-highest of any college
president in the country.
Diamandopoulos (pronounced
Dee-man-DOP-o-lus) also enjoys lavish
perks such as the use of a $1.2 mil-
lion apartment on Manhattan's Upper
East Side, along with both a stately
house and a $400,000 condominium
near the campus in Garden City, on
Long Island.
Meanwhile, full-time enrollment
is down to about 5,000, a 30 percent
drop since Diamandopoulos became
president. Tuition has jumped 60 per-
cent in the last five years, to about
$13,500 a year.
Now the New York state attorney
general is investigating
Diamandopoulos's financial arrange-
ments.
In a nonbinding ballot in Octo-
ber, the 240-member faculty voted
131-15 to oust Diamandopoulos.
"I find it incredible and outra-
geous that the university can spend a
million dollars on a Manhattan apart-
ment while we've had 30 support staff
laid off said Devin Thornburg, a psy-
chology professor and chairman of the
faculty senate.
In addition, the district attorney
is investigating claims that on Nov.
29, Diamandopoulos's wife, Maria, left
eight crank messages on the faculty
union's answering machine.
A voice expert hired by the union
concluded the messages were left by
Mrs. Diamandopoulos, said Cathy
Cleaver, executive director of the
union.
One call said: "I thought you
were some liberal radical, Nazi, sort
of Karl Marx crap organization that's
hanging around destroying universi-
ties. I want you out of there, not Presi-
dent Diamandopoulos
Students, meanwhile, have joined
with alumni and faculty in forming a
group called Save Adelphi, which is
challenging the radio station closing
in court and helped get the expendi-
ture issue before the attorney
general's office.
Faculty members argue that the
school's reputation was built on its
strong nursing and social work
courses. Now those areas have been
gutted with sharp course reductions,
they say.
The faculty eventually voted to
shut down the nursing doctoral pro-

Aliens slip into country
(AP) - The problem of aliens slipping into America
illegally, said the U.S. Border Patrol, has "gotten out of
hand" in Seattle, WA. But not the familiar problem on the
sievelike southern border with Mexico.
This time the alarm sounds in the north. Now it's the
Canadian border.
And the illegals are not as in the south, mostly Mexi-
cans and South Americans. Here in the north they are, for
the most part, Koreans.
They slip across the westernmost stretch of the U.S
Canadian border near the crossing at Blaine, about 130
miles north of Seattle, at the rate of about 50 a month and
the number is growing daily, according to James Rayburn
of the Border Patrol's anti-smuggling operation in
Bellingham, Wash.
The numbers had been negligible, says Rayburn, until
May 1994, when Canada dropped its requirement that
South Korean visitors need a visa. Now, he says, illegal entry is
the fastest-growing problem at the crossing.
"Just as we approach every new month we're logging
higher stats he said in a recent interview.
Both U.S. and Canadian officials stress that the percent-
age entering the United States illegally is a fraction of the
number of Koreans visiting Canada.
But with only a handful of the 48 agents at the Washing-
ton state border assigned to anti-smuggling, Rayburn says he
can't keep up.
"It's gotten out of hand he says. "We are in competition
with a much more active southern border, and we're not the
higher priority He noted that San Diego has nearly two-
dozen agents assigned to anti-smuggling.
Agents say Korean smuggling operations are not only

more frequent but increasingly sophis-
ticated - and lucrative.
They describe a network of con-
tacts stretching from Seoul to
Vancouver, the Canadian entry point
closest to Asia.
Smugglers charge a minimum of
$14,000 a customer, investigators say.
They advertise in newspapers and with
underground sources in Korea. The
destination is not Canada but as with
the "coyote" smugglers of the south-
ern border, the United States.
Getting to Canada is easy. Clients
simply board flights from Seoul to
Vancouver, usually in groups of 30 to
40. There, one or two couriers meet
them and drive them into the Vancouver
area for a meal and a tew hours' sleep
at a motel.
They rouse them in the middle of
the night divide them into smaller
groups, load them into rental vans and
drive them on back roads to points near
the border.
They enter the United States on
foot slipping in across remote farm
fields. There, other vans await for the 2
12-hour drive to Seattle. Some stay
there. Others catch domestic flights to,
usually, New York, Los Angeles or San
Francisco.
Investigators believe several loosely
connected Korean smuggling rings op-
erate about the same way.
Last Oct 20, U.S. Border Patrol
agents stopped a rented van carrying
16 undocumented Koreans on Inter-
. state 5 near Bellingham, several miles
south of the border.
They told the agents that smug-
glers had driven them from the
Vancouver airport to the border, then
led them across raspberry fields to the
United States in the middle of the night
They said their guides communicated
using cellular telephones and flashing
lights.
Agents arrested both the man who
drove the van and the one who led them
across the raspberry fields. One was
himself an undocumented Korean. The
other, lawyers have indicated in court
might be cooperating with investigators.
Federal prosecutors decline comment
Smuggling rings began drawing
notice last summer, a little over a year
after Canada dropped its visa require-
ments for Korean visitors.
The reason for the waiver, says
John Kent a Canadian immigration
spokesman in Vancouver, was simply to
accommodate the large numbers of
Koreans who want to visit Canada le-
gitimately. He says figures show that
about 78,000 visited in 1994, a 95 per-
cent increase from 1993 which was the
highest rate of increase for any coun-
try.
Further, Kent says, Canada doesn't
have visa requirements for other Asian
countries, such as Hong Kong and Ja-
pan, and no immigration problems have
arisen with those countries.
But the No. 1 travel destination for
Koreans is the United States. More than
600,000 South Koreans were expected
to visit this country in 1995, up about
900 percent from 1987.
Jin Song of the Washington-based
Korea Economic Institute of America,
a trade group, has an economic expla-
nation.
"Koreans are basically much more
well off now he says. "It's no longer
the grueling, penny-pinching days any-
more. As households become more
wealthy, they want to spend their lei-
sure, and one of the leisures that's be-
coming increasingly popularized is
travel
But at the U.S. Embassy in Seoul
the lines to get visas are frustratingly
long Song says, often all the way around
the block just to get an application, then
another long wait to be called back for
an interview. The process can take
months or even years, he says.
"The problem is due to the over-
worked status of Americans working in
the consulate in Seoul Song says.
Dan Danilov, a Seattle lawyer who
specializes in immigration, says some
Koreans would rather forgo the bureau-
cratic hassle and pay a smuggler.
"The legal way, you have to fill out
papers, you have to give your history,
tell the government how much money
you have in the bank he says.
"But the illegal smuggler doesn't
need any information. You can give him
a false name and he doesn't care. All he
wants is $25,000 and he arranges to

How to Save $$$ in Your Apartment
AtCVKV
Rent isn't the only big cost of living in an
apartment. Your utility bills can also add up.
During the winter months, hold down your
utility bills with these money saving tips
1. Lock your windows in cold weather. They fit
tighter when locked.
2. Keep your blinds or draperies closed, except
when the sun is directly shining through your win-
dows.
3. Avoid placing warm dishes into your refrigerator
or freezer. Whenever possible, wait until they are
cooled to room temperature. (Make sure you
refrigrate the food within two hours after cooking.)
4. Use the smallest kitchen appliances possible to
cook meals- such as microwaves and slow cookers.

Our View
Tattoos and
other essentials
will have to
wait until we
recover from
our book
expenses
They have us right where they want us in the bookstore
spending all of the money we had originally set aside for books
PLUS the money we thought we were going to have left over. It
looks like we will have to wait another semester to get those tat-
toos we had been saving for.
It happens the same way at the start of every semester. We add
up all of our existing expenses (you know, the late MasterCard
payment, the phone bill from the end of last semester, our "new
and improved" tuition bills and we subtract them from our
existing (or soon to exist) bank stash.
Those of us who are lucky enough to receive scholarships and
or financial aid and actually have enough left over after tuition to
expect a refund are especially excited. We don't even mind standing
in that long @! line at the Cashier's Office, because the only thing
registering in our minds is the fact we're actually going to be able
to write checks again. Yessir! No more searching for an ATM that
dispenses $5 bills for us! Happy days are here again.
Now it's the first week of classes, and we know sooner or later
we have to go to the bookstore to fill the quota of "required texts
but we're not worried. We had already anticipated this little incon-
venience, and we have it covered. After all, were only taking 15
hours worth of courses, right? How much can that be?
"$345!?" you gasp in a high falsetto to the lady behind the
counter at the student store. "Are you sure you didn't charge me
twice for one book? Did you take off the '$5 off every $75' cou-
pon?" People standing in line behind you are getting a little rowdy
as you take another look at your booklist trying to decide which
ones you really need. Then you remember what happened last se-
mester when you tried to go without buying that biology book, and
you hand the lady your tear-stained check. Ch-ting! And it's all over.
You trudge home saying, "I should have gone to UBE, after all,
they do have more used books However, the truth is some of your
friends went to UBE and they paid as much as you did, and they
only got one "$5 off every $75" coupon taken off of their entire
purchase. And oh how convenient! The small print on the bottom
of the coupon says, "NOT VALID ON PREVIOUS PURCHASES
So no one can go back and demand reimbursement for the fraudu-
lent coupon.
So once again we must call our friends in Raleigh and tell them
we won't be coming to get our tattoos this month maybe next
month maybe next semester maybe

Perverts lurk everywhere
I am beginning to think I have
some kind of invitation branded on
my forehead.
When something perverse and
twisted happens to you twice, you
begin to wonder if it's you or is the
world becoming sicker and sicker. I'd
like to think it's the world and not
something on my forehead that every-
one, except me, can see. Let me tell
you about my most recent experience.
It's the middle of the afternoon
and I am driving down Arlington Bou-
levard when a car pulls up beside me
and proceeds at the same speed. Had
I not had my signal light on to change
lanes, I would've probably never
glanced over at the car, but I thought
it was someone being a jerk by not
letting me change lanes.
So I glance over to see what kind
of moron enjoys playing such child-
ish and dangerous games. What I saw
was not some teenager trying to be
funny, or some pinhead trying to be a
jerk, but a pervert trying to show me
his erect penis.
For a few seconds I didn't even
notice what he had clutched in his
hand, but when 1 did, I simply shook
my head in disgust "How pathetic I

So i slowed up, but he also
slowed up. And then, as if carefully
calculated, he pulled into the turn lane
and made a U-turn and headed toward
me. Well, I am not sure what tran-
spired in the next couple of seconds,
but I didn't turn around to follow him.
I didn't even get a glimpse of his li-
cense plate.
As I got closer and closer to
home, I got angrier and angrier.

told them everything. An hour later
they had stopped a vehicle similar to
the one I described. I was asked to

they stopped was the wrong guy. I
never heard from the Greenville P.D.
again.
Had this been my first experience
with a pervert I wouldn't have been
so disturbed. But this has happened
to me before, and it has happened to
some of my friends as well. Fortu-
nately, I was in my car and the man
couldn't get to me, but some of my
friends haven't been so lucky.
I've laughed with my friends
about the sicko, but I think we've all
thought to ourselves how scary a situ-
ation like that can become. I could
kick myself in the butt for not chas-
ing the guy down, but in today's soci-
ety, you've got to think about your
safety first Any moron who would do
something like that probably wouldn't
hesitate to shoot someone. Besides,
isn't it the job of the law to catch
people like that? Unfortunately, in a
society where teen-agers are picked
up every day for committing murder,
burglary and rape, someone who
shows their penis to an innocent
driver isn't much of a priority.

Phantom strikes again
The transformation is complete.
Every molecule in my body has been
converted into a terrible beast that col-
lectively forms one of ECU's meanest
and most despised creatures, feeding on
opportunity and caring nothing for the
innocent or fair-hearted. This living,
breathing phenomenon that has entered
my body and has taken over has left me
but one choice for escape from its strong
grasp. It has forced me to purge myself
of the guilt in a public forum, that it
might choose another host with which
to perform its evil deeds. I have become
the parking lot phantom.
Yes, I know that some of you who
know me are calling around to special-
ists and doctois in the hope of finding
some type of revolutionary cure, but let
me save you the quarter and tell you
that this ailment has no known cure. I
can only pray that this exposure of my
susceptibility can cleanse me.
Today I was running a little tiny
bit late to my nine o'clock class. This
means that I rose at the appropriate
hour only to remember, while in the
shower singing Milli-Vanilli, that I had
forgotten to do the first homework as-
signment for my Spanish II class.
I could have let it slip, but like
many other East Carolina students this
semester, I am in need of a little G.PA.
boost and I want to get off to a good
start Inside me, at this moment the
beast receives a tiny bit of nourishment
as he feeds off of my stress. So I hur-
ried through the shower (this fact alone
can put a person on the edge) and did
my homework at light speed. By the
time I closed the book and zipped up
my backpack, it was seven minutes un-
til nine and my eyes bulged in surprise.
Speeding through neighborhoods
and dodging all of the walkers, 1 was in
a panic. I panicked not really because I
was going to be late. I certainly have

side me awaiting discomfort and worry
with which he can grab onto and use
as a stepping stone to my conscious-
ness. He is certainly in the parking lot
having taken over many other unsus-
pecting victims already, causing them
to speed around the parking lot killing
randomly in search of a spot He is devi-
ous.
This is the point of no return for
me. When I first begin to stress about
how many people will be in the lot I
find that I must make a choice. I must
choose to accept the fact that it may
take me anywhere from 10 to 20 min-
utes to find a space, or I must choose
to become the beast
Today 1 became the beast
This transformation is not neces-
sarily characterized by obvious things,
like a werewolf s long hair or a vampire's
lurking, sharp teeth. No no. More often
than not there are no outward signs.
The unsuspecting host is not commonly
aware that a change has even taken
place until the parking spot has been
stolen, or 'found as the beast would
prefer it stated. This is one of the most
severe natures of this beast this thief
of mental peace, this phantom of stabil-
ity. He is so sneaky that I did not even
know about him until I became him,
and at that point it was much to late.
I arrived at the first lot at about
nine o'clock. I was sweating and worry-
ing like a father in the delivery room.
My subconscious laboring to produce
this monster. The lot looked like the one
tiny hole in the bottom of a wasp nest
There were so many cars zooming
around in a frenzy for the one or two
spots that would be made available from
students returning from their eight
o'clock classes.
I decided to spin the car around
and speed up to the lot behind
Mendenhall in one final attempt to tease
the beast back into the depths of my
mind. If I could only find a space quickly
I might keep the stress from welling
inside.
I didn't find a space quickly.
Now, in complete transformation, I
hovered around the small lot like a hawk
or a vulture over a field of lambs. I would
do anything to get a space. Then, I spun
my head around 360 degrees like the
great horned owl to see directly in front
of me a spot opening up at the far end of
the lot Out of the corner of my eye I
could see that another person driving a
new Mustang had already seen it and
was moving slowly towards it I stepped
on the gas with my newly hairy feet and
spiked teeth and arrived at the space just
in time to pull into it without using the
brakes until my front bumper was an inch
from the fence that backed up to it
I hid my face from the driver of the
other car and scurried through the con-
struction onto campus. To the driver of
that car I apologize from the bottom of
my susceptible little heart I did not know
that I could be the beast I did not ex-
pect his claws to grab so strongly. I
thought that it would never happen to
me. but it did.

A Drop
Bucket
"A Drop in the Bucket" is just
what it claims to be: a very tiny
drop in the great screaming
bucket of American media opin-
ion. Take it as you will
Mark Brett
Lifestyle Editor
L
I've got a confession to make.
It's the kind of confession that gar-
ners hard stares in this country, if
not outright disdain. It's a senti-
ment that generally goes unex-
pressed in print, but I know I can't
be the only person who feels this
way. And that's why I'm sharing
this with you now.
I really hate sports.
Well, okay, that's not entirely
accurate. I can appreciate the tal-
ent and ability of athletes and the
subtle complexities of coaching
strategies. I also understand the
important role sports play in many
people's lives. For a lot of kids, it's
a ticket out of the ghetto and into
a college education. For a select few
of those kids, it's also a ticket to
million-dollar salaries and a life
their parents never dreamed of.
So it's not sports I have a prob-
lem with, per se. It's all the stuff
that goes with sports that I hate.
The fans, for instance.
I'm not talking about the ca-
sual fan, who occasionally tunes in
to an NBA game on his day off. I'm
talking about the people who live
for sports. They spend as many of
their off hours as possible watch-
ing sports. They talk sports, they
breathe sports, they eat sports.
Hell, they'd probably have sex with
sports if they were equipped with
the proper genitalia.
But then again, maybe they've
found a way. There's a frightening
number of these people out there,
and I think they're multiplying. All
those sports bars erupting around
the nation must be holding big
sports orgies every weekend to be
popping out so many new sports
fans. Helmets and shin guards pro-
vided, no condoms allowed.
What's especially scary about
all this is that there's nothing more
obnoxious than a room full of
sports fans. It's all spilled beer and
hooting, the latest "important"
game sand-blasting away brain cells
with the soothing glow of televi-
sion. They're like cavemen, stuffed
into over-civilized clothes and try-
ing to scare away a rival tribe with
ritual grunting.
Why do people care so much?
It's not like they're personally in-
volved. I mean, if somebody's actu-
ally playing in a game, I can under-
stand getting all moist about it But
if you're just watching it on TV
By the same token, I don't get
the need sports fans feel to rag
each other when somebody's favor-
ite team loses. What's the deal,
guys? It's not like your buddy per-
sonally screwed up and lost the
game. Why must you torment each
other? Tell you what When you get
off your butt and beat somebody
at a sport personally, crow all you
want But if you're merely a spec-
tator, just keep your bloody mouth
shut i
And what is it with people who
memorize statistics? Don't they
have anything better to do with
those brain cells? We might have a
cure for cancer, or at least the com-
mon cold, if so many otherwise-
useful brain areas weren't filled up
with sports trivia.
There's a word for people like
this: geek. That's right; geek. All
you rabid sports fans out there, for
all your alpha-male grunting and
"cool" status, are geeks. Sports
geeks.
Don't try to deny it Don't even

the war in El
Salvador (Salva-
dor), violence in mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
the media
(Natural Born Killers) and the assas-
sination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy
(JFK).
That Stone would tackle a biog-
raphy of Richard Milhouse Nixon, one
of the most controversial politicians
of the 20th century, was therefore no
surprise. The three hour and 10
minute running time of Nixon follows
in the footsteps of other Stone films,
which usually run longer than 120
minutes. And the intense perfor-
mances he coaxes from all cast mem-
bers have now become expected from
this master film maker. The only real
surprise in the film is how sympa-
thetic a portrait Mr. Stone paints of
Mr. Nixon (played by Anthony
Hopkins, an almost assured Oscar
nominee).
Nixon, the politician, had many
memorable accomplishments and a
good number of setbacks. Resigning
from office in disgrace in 1974, Nixon
managed to become a respected elder
statesman during
the last 20 years of
his life.
Nixon, the
film, has many
memorable scenes
but a good deal of
setbacks as well.

the man who was
Richard Nixon. I understand Richard
Nixon, the politician, but not why the
man became a politician. But the prob-
lem of Nixon's character aside, Nixon,
the film, scores a remarkable coup by
helping to shed some light over the
career of an accomplished politician.
Stone tries to shed light on the
man behind Richard Nixon by show-
ing some boyhood scenes in a black
and white format. Hannah Nixon
(Mary Steenburgen), his mother, was
a devout Quaker, who called her boys

beginnings of a poor lemon ranch

Fleck may have performed the theme
music for the recent movie, but don't
stereotype him as a straw hat wearing,

it's hard bo put Bela Fleck's music into
any one category. Bela and his band,
the Flecktones, have always made mu-
sic that's too daring for any labels.
They are the type of band who feels
just as at ease playing bluegrass festi-
vals, jazz festivals or opening for Blues
Traveler. But their music mixes high
tech, acoustic guitar, banjo and world
beats into a singular music style unique
to the Flecktones. Not exactly how one
would describe the Clampets.
Beia's adventurous music has not
always been so easily accepted, though.
As a young man growing up in New York
City, he embraced jazz, and is a self-
proclaimed Charlie Parker fanatic Bela
plays the banjo, the most identifiable
instrument of Dixieland and ragtime
music So the jazz-fusion sound of the
Flecktones is not one that many blue-
grass fans find to be very blue or very
grassy. But it has also been a struggle
for Fleck to establish banjo in modern
jazz.
"I've just always loved jazz. 1 play
the banjo. Most people get real excited
when they hear the banjo playing jazz
because they think it's something new,
but really the banjo has roots in jazz
and in some ways I'm bringing the banjo
back to jazz Bela told TEC in a recent
phone interview.
At the tender age of 15, Fleck
learned to play the banjo by listening
to Charlie Parker albums. He said he
hadn't been playing very long, but he
learned some Parker leads and solos. It
taught him much of the jazz vocabu-
lary, though he wouldn't have a place
to use it
Afterward, Fleck played short stints
in a few bluegrass bands such as
Kentucky's Spectrum. But his passion
for jazz quickly returned under the lead-
ership of guitarist Pat Martino, who
showed Fleck how to play his banjo in
a jazz format
When Bela formed the Flecktones
in 1990, he was dismissed by members

Vampires and bank robbers
collide From Dusk Till Dawn
Dale Williamson
Senior Writer
Robert Rodriguez, the man who brought the mythic
Desperado to life, and Quintin Tarantino, the man you
either love or despise, have joined forces yet again. But
this time it's Rodriquez's over-the-top direction and
Tarantino s in-your-face writing that tag team to create
the ludicrous, but intensely fun, From Dusk Till Dawn .
From Dusk Till Dawn starts out as disturbing crime
film with Seth and Richard Gekko (George Clooney and
Quintin Tarantino respectively) running for the Mexican
border after robbing a bank and killing about 14 people.
Along their journey, the Gekko brothers grab a faithless
pastor (Harvey Keitel) and his two children, forcing the
family to carry them to their destination.
The first half of the film focuses on the dynamics
between these very different and very disturbed charac-
ters. However, when this traveling bunch reach their desti-
nation in Mexico, the entire film takes a slight turn.
While having drinks, and punching out Mexican bik-
ers in a hellish bar known as "The Titty Twister our he-
roes discover that they've landed in a vampire lair. This is
the point of the film where you either accept things as
they are and enjoy the ensuing jokes, or you just finish
your poprom and leave.
Both Rodriquez and Tarantino are pop culture junk-
ies, particularly pop culture of the 70's, and their obses-
sion with the past shines through within the walls of this
vampire lair. Before the film is over, we get references to
Peter Cushing, disco and Blackula.

Folk sculptor makes
wires come to life
GASTONIA (AP) - Scott Collins,
tired of carving wood one muggy
night last August, began twisting a
piece of wire and soon an eagle
soared.
A stranger offered him $45 for
the 3-foot-tall aluminum bird. It sur-
prised Collins. Would other people
pay for wire sculptures?
Collins set to work. Most nights,
after he quits repairing washers and
dryers, he lets his imagination and
his hands take over.
He steadies a 2-foot strand of
wire with needle-nosed pliers, loops
the middle of the wire to form a
man's head, then twists the two
strands to make a torso with enough
wire left over for legs, bent at the
knees like a runner's.
Collins calls it a hobby. Michael
Gallis calls it folk art
"This guy is one of the most cre-
ative people I've ever seen said
Gallis, an urban planner with a Scott
Collins 9 12-foot aluminum shark
hanging in his uptown Charlotte of-
fice. "His art not only shows a skill,
but also a desire to expr:s himself
and his ideas. It comes right out of
his soul
Gallis is so smitten with Collins'
creations, he commissioned a fighter
piane to hang at CharlotteDouglas
International Airport. "He can be
one of the important folk artists in
the country Gallis said.
Collins, 45, has never heard of
folk art, and he's not about to give
up his day job any time soon. Repair-
ing broken and junked appliances
doesn't pay much. But it covers his
$90-a-month rent for the brick shell
of a building that he's filled at one
end with a clutter of hoses, lint col-
lectors, stove elements, and at the
other end with an enchanting menag-
erie of wire figures.
The faces he creates have few
features, yet they evoke expression:
delight in the little boy riding his tri-
cycle, desire in the man bringing
flowers to his lady love, determina-
tion in the man pushing a plow.
Collins has ����
thought. She mentioned the hand-
made sign to Collins.
"Well, let me show you some-
thing else he said, and led her to
the back of the building where he
sleeps on a sofa bed and displays his
artwork on metal shelves, a coffee
table and a television console.

and he answers

He's soft-spoken, 6 feet 3 inches
tall and slender, with large yet nimble
hands. For 25 years, he carved
wooden figures such as owls, mon-
keys and alligators. More recently, he
fashioned flowers from refrigerator
parts. He gave away the pieces or
tucked them on a shelf.
"I was just doing it to be doing
something he said. "I love making
things. I love to see how they look. I
love to watch them being created and
see how they come out
Not long after Collins twisted his
first wire sculpture, the eagle, pianist
E.R. McPhail of Gastonia stopped by
his shop on Airline Avenue with a
broken lamp and rug shampooer.
The shop used to be a corner
grocery store. It looks worn, outside
and in, paint peeling off bricks.
Bolted to the wall to the right of the
door is the top of a washing machine.

amazed that all
that stuff was
just sitting
there McPhail
says. "They
seem so real.
They're nothing
but figurines
and they don't
even have faces,
but you can feel their movement. I
thought to myself, 'This man is not
known. Gastonia should know him.
North Carolina should know him "
She told Collins: "You're wast-
ing your talent
"Ain't nobody going to buy
that he told her. But he remem-
bered the man who paid $45 for the
eagle, and he allowed himself a little
hope.
y:Phail arranged for Collins to
display his work at Gastonia's Arts
Uptown and Fish Camp Jam festivals
last year. People surrounded his table,
Gallis among them. Gallis telephoned
Collins a few days later to say he
wanted the shark. That led to com-
missions for a rooster for a restaurant,
and then the airplane for the airport.
Collins is now working on a pea-
cock and another shark.

maker walks the independent side of film
:
NEW YORK (AP) - When John
Sayles started making movies, people
weren't flocking to art-house cinemas,
relatively few independent films were
getting made and no Miramax was
around to market them.
So Sayles, the pioneering high
priest, certainly knows what he's talk-
ing about when he agrees these are
heady times for independent filmmak-
ers with small budgets.
"Yeah, there's an interesting phe-
nomenon happening he said during
a recent telephone interview from his
Hoboken, N J home.
"If you talk to the people who
run the Sundance Film Festival, the
number of people with first features,
the ones who are just coming from
out of left field, the number of sub-
missions has grown to 300400 a year
- when it used to be dozens. The
flip side of that is that a higher per-
centage of them don't get a theatri-
cal release
Another positive change for
small, independent movies is that ac-
tors have discovered them, the 45-
year-old filmmaker-author-actor said.
"You can get very well-known
actors working for half their usual
price just because they want to be in
something good he said.
With the release 16 years ago of
his first feature, "Return of the
Secaucus Seven Sayles established
himself as a leader of the American
independent film movement
After his 1980 debut as screen-
writer-director, he went on to make
"Lianna "Baby, It's You "The
Brother From Another Planet
"Matewan "Eight Men Out" "City
of Hope and 1992's "Passion Fish
which rereived two Academy Award
nominations, including best original
screenplay.
Now out on video is "The Secret
of Roan Inish which was well-re-
ceived last year by critics and audi-
ences.
An enchanting fable set in Ire-
land, it centers on a 10-yearold girl
sent to live with her grandparents af-
ter her mother's death. She starts
hearing tales about how her baby
brother, who got swept away by a
wave, is still alive and sailing the seas
in his boatlike cradle, and how her
family is descended from a "Selkie
a half-human, half-seal creature. And
she longs for her homeland.
"So many American movies are
about moving on - road movies, or
the way West or opportunity lying
just over the next hill Sayles says.
"But so many Irish stories are about
missing home
He also was intrigued by the
storytelling tradition and oral history.
"And I think to have that you
have to have a traditional culture

Sayles said.
That's the reason he set the
movie in the late 1940s - the girl has
only imagination to rely on, since she's
never seen a movie or TV show.
"I think now there isn't any oral

he said.
Now, when old friends and fam-

Andersonville is a 4-square-mile
neighborhood about five miles from
downtown. It was settled by Swedes
moving north after the Chicago fire in
1871 and named for a local farmer,
John Anderson.
About 25 years ago, several Middle
Eastern businesses began locating
there. Today, both ethnic groups are
prominent along with Japanese, Ital-
ian and Filipino eateries.
The Landmark, a cooperative of
18 shops - all but one owned by
women � helped pave the way for
women entrepreneurs when it opened
in 1987. That same night two other
women-owned businesses opened
nearby.
The history of the artsy Kopi -
A Traveler's Cafe, is a story in itself.
It opened in 1991 after two women
on a backpacking trip in Southeast
Asia met a third woman from
Andersonville.
The trio decided to open a cof-
feehouse with a travel theme where
people could buy maps and travel
books, find destination points on
globes and check the time in far-away
places like Timbuktu by glancing at
wall clocks.
They took out a $12,000 loan,
named the business "Kopi" - coffee
in Indonesia - and paid off the loan
in six months.
"The whole idea behind Kopi is
we don't see sexual preference, race,
culture or religion said Rhonda
Welbel, one of the two remaining own-
ers. "We look at this neighborhood
as open to everyone
Says Landmark building owner
Jan Baxter "There is something in the
water that grows strong women
Others say Andersonville is so
welcoming to women because of its
Scandinavian roots and multiethnic
history.
"Here we have people from ev-
ery corner of the world said Swed-
ish immigrant Kurt Mathiasson, owner
of Svea Restaurant
Even businessmen whose native
lands have yet to embrace sexual
equality seem comfortable with their
female counterparts.
"It's America, and it's the land
of liberty said Reza Toulabi, the Per-
sian owner of the popular Reza's Res-
taurant which is packed on weekends
with customers of every ethnic origin.
Every few months a group of about
50 to 60 Persian women meet there
to discuss the society.
"They talk about anything
Toulabi said.
STONE from page 7
United States. While most parents at
some time hold on to the slim hope
of their child becoming president,
Nixon's parents seemed to do no
such thing. Nixon only went to law
school because his older brother
died.
The black and while flashback
scenes are only some of the various
types of images created in Nixon.
Newsreel footage, television footage
and other black and white shots oc-
cur throughout the film. Oliver Stone
has mastered the art of using differ-
ent film stock to create a mufti-dimen-
sional film. He uses different types of
film the way Sergei Eisenstein, the
great Russian filmmaker, used mon-
tage. The multi-media approach fa-
vored by Stone may well become his
trademark, a technique studied by film
students in the future.
Stone assembles a first rate cast
to fill the roles of all the president's
men and women. Most notable is Joan
Allen, who creates a completely sym-
pathetic Pat Nixon. The audience
grows to understand more about her
than about her husband because she
is always concerned about real life,
whereas her husband is always fo-
cused on his political life. Allen gives
a finely modulated performance that
could have easily led to hysterics in
several scenes.
When Pat asks for a divorce, Ms.
Allen calmly allows the request to fall
in the middle of the room rather than
create a commotion. Her acting in this
one scene is enough to guarantee her
a shot at an Academy Award.
James Woods stands tall among
the presidential advisors as H.R.
Haldeman. Woods commands the
screen and makes the audience feel
the mixture of respect fear and worry
that came from being so close Nixon.
J.T. Walsh as John Erlichman, David
Hyde Pierce as John Dean and Paul
Sorvino as Henry Kissinger all make
believable portrayals. Bob Hoskins
gives a creepy performance as J. Edgar
Hoover and Madeline Kahn gives a
neurotic performance as Mrs. John
Mitchell.
Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of
Nixon is sheer acting genius. Though
Hopkins could not pass as Nixon's
double, the mannerisms are identical.
And Hopkins gives Nixon more life
than the American public saw while
watching Nixon on television. With
slumped shoulders, arms raised in air
with two fingers on each hand ex-
tended, Hopkins embodies Richard
Nixon. Hopkins portrays Nixon as
gruff, tempermental and ultimately
insecure.
The person with whom I watched
Nixon complimented Stone on giving
enough information so that someone
who knew little about the Nixon staff
could still follow all the plot twists
and turns, especially concerning
Watergate. At the same time, Stone
did not insult the intelligence of those
who know a little more about the
Nixon presidency and Watergate.
Nixon stands alongside the great
political stories told in All the
President's Men (by Woodward and
Bernstein) and Blind Ambition (by
John Dean). The film tells yet another
side of the story of the Watergate
scandal, which encapsulates the life
of Richard Milhouse Nixon. Oliver
Stone has stepped into the middle of
another controversial subject and
given another enjoyable, if biased,
history lesson. At his core, Stone is a
teacher who wants to learn by mak-
ing films. I'm sure glad he likes to
make them because I like to watch
them.
On a scale of one to 10, Nixon
rates an eight

The East Carolinian
LllvOi from page 7
think about it You're just like all us
other geeks out here. Whether it's
Star Trek, comic books, math, stamps,
computers or the NFL, we are geeks
one and all. Welcome to the club.
The question now, of course, is
what makes you so special? What
makes sports geeks so much more
important than the rest of us geeks
that your personal obsession can
eclipse everybody else's?
Why, for example, do 1 have to
watch sports scores clutter up the
screen 24-7 on Headline News?
Couldn't that space be better-used to
give us a running count of how many
trees are left in the Rain Forest? Make
the environmental geeks happy for a
change.
Or how about keeping us up to
date on the death toll in Bosnia or
any of the other wars being waged
around the globe? Hourly body
counts, up to the minute coverage on
who's winning and who's losing the
world-wide contest between freedom
and oppression. Now, that's news.
Morbid? Maybe, but at least it
would be something that actually
tra 10 minutes to solve a particularly
bizarre or complicated case? Hell, no!
They've got to solve their problems
in an hour, or they don't get solved at
all.
They can't play a football game
in under three hours? Too bad! Cut
em off! To hell with them if they can't
work under a deadline.
Okay, so maybe I'm being a little
unreasonable. Maybe, since sports
take place in messy reality, they can't
be expected to wrap things up under
deadline every time. So what if I can
change the oil in my car and give it a
tune-up in less time? I understand,
really. Some geeks require special at-
tention.
And sports geeks seem to require
so much special attention that we of-
ten forget they're geeks. There are so
many of them, in fact, that we've
started to see them as something to
emulate. But they're still geeks.
So I've got some advice for all
you sports geeks out there (those of
you who haven't already hurled the
paper across the room, football-like,
in your rage). Think of it the next time
DAWN from page 7
gins to narrate the horrors of his Viet-
nam experience, we are meant to
laugh. Rodriquez and Tarantino con-
tinually play on such movie cliches to
hilarious effect.
Still. Dusk is not a happy kind of
comedy. It is an extremely violent,
corpse-ridden buffet People suffer
grotesque deaths, as do the vampires.
While some may gripe about the ex-
cessive violence that seeps through-
out this film, this is a movie working
within the horror genre, and horror
is not known for making one feel com-
fortable.
Technically. Dusk is top-notch
stuff. Rodriguez's visual flair almost
captures the sweat of the Mexican heat
and the bitter taste of the warm beer.
For the most part, the cast is per-
fect. George Clooney carries a glisten-
ing presence that makes his repulsive
character somewhat attractive. Juliet
Lewis, as the pastor's daughter, cap-
tures perfectly the transformation of
a young girl as she descends from in-
nocence into experience. Salma Hayek
is a definite physical presence, despite
her lack of actual dialogue and Harvey
Keitel gives a wonderful, subtle per-
formance as a man who struggles with
his lost faith in God.
The only weak link in the act-
ing chain, unfortunately, is
Tarantino. Sure, he's playing a char-
acter he's suited for. but he is not an
actor with enough substance to layer
the necessary edge onto the charac-
ter.
I'm sure Rodriquez and
Tarantino are going to take a flog-
ging for this film. From Dusk Till
Dawn is a film for anyone who's will-
ing to throw reality and sensibility
out the window for a little while. If
you come in to the theater expect-
ing a serious dose of reality, you're
going to be disgusted. For reality, go
see Seven again. For an all-out vam-
pire orgy. From Dusk Till Dawn
tastes just right. On a scale of one to
10, this film rates an eight.

The East Carolinian
Undefeated home
streak continues
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
Too close for comfort. That is
what you could say about the men's
basketball game against Old Domin-
ion.
Saturday night's game would
prove to be a big victory for the Pi-
rates who now extend their unde-
feated home record to 7-0. After the
72-67 victory over the Monarchs,
ECU is now 3-2 in the CAA and 10-4
overall.
This was the 32nd meeting be-
tween the two schools With ODU
holding a 25-6 series advantage be-
fore the game. ODU was picked to
finish first in the preseason CAA poll,
and before coming to Greenville they
were undefeated in the conference.
ODU won the tip-off but it was
the Pirates who took control early.
ECU started their scoring drive with
two Tim Basham three pointer? For
the next two minutes ODU didn't
have any answers for the Pirates'
points, and ECU went on to build a
124 lead. ODU finally scored after a
Joe Bunn lay up.
After a Von Bryant slam dunk
that sent the crowd into a frenzy,
ECU was up 14-6, but then ODU
slowly made their way back. Mark
Poag, a freshman for the Monarchs,
lit up their scoring drive and put
them right back
into the game.
At the 9:27
mark the score
was tied 18-18.
ODU took a
short lived lead
after a Bryant
blocking foul
that sent ODU's
big man, Odell
Hodge, to the
line. Hodge
made the two
shots, and the Pirates were down 18-
20. But from there the Pirates did
not look back. Jonathan Kerner tied

the ball game again at 20-20.
However, after Basham's and
Othello Meadow's
three pointers, the
lead was back to
six with a little less
than seven min-
utes in the first
half. ECU took a
commanding 36-26

locker room at half-
time.
Leading scor-
ers at half-time
were Basham with

SID - ECU's swimming and
diving squads moved to a 4-0 in the
CAA with a sweep of the Univer-
sity of Richmond Saturday after-
noon in Richmond, Va. The men's
129-106 win gives them a 7-2 over-
all record, while the women now
stand at 8-1 overall after their 127-
110 win.
For the men, newcomer Rich-
ard Chen had two wins, while
sophomore Stephen Barnes added
two more. Chen placed first in the
200 Free (1:48.39) and the 200 Fly
(1:57.21). Barnes won both the one
meter and three meter diving
events with scores of 247.575 and
Don't
274.125, consecutively.
Sandra Ossmann and Melanie
Mackwood led the Lady Pirates to
victory with two wins each. Ossmann
dominated the distance freestyies
with 10:31.62 in the 1000 Free and
5:08.83 in the 500 Free. Teammate
Mackwood led the sprint freestyies
with her wins in the 50 Free (24.88)
and the 100 Free (52.75).
"It seems that both our teams
have been able to come back from
Christmas break without losing their
motivation said Head Coach Rick
Kobe. "The vacation hasn't nega-
tively affected their speed, they're'
just getting faster and faster the
closer we get to the Conference
(championships)
Results are also in from the
swim meet two weekends ago
against American. Due to inclem-
ent weather American never made
the trip to Greenville, but both
squads still swam and faxed each
other the results. Both squads de-
feated American. The men posted
a 104-101 win while the women
won 120-82.
The Pirates will continue their
season on the road when they
travel to Wilmington, N.C. on Jan.
27 to face the Seahawks of UNC-
W at 2 p.m.
Tomorrow nights men's

Defense is the name of the game. Tim Basham spreads his
arms in hopes of denying an opponent the easy basket.

Less than a minute into the game
Meadows was fouled outside the arch
and was given three foul shots. Af-
ter nailing all the free throws, ECU
was ahead 39-26. From there the lead
would fluctuate up and down, but the
Pirates still were in the drivers seat.
The biggest lead was 16 points
after a Rippey foul shot, but the Mon-
archs weren't ready to give up yet.
ECU's lead was cut to one point af-
ter a Meadows foul that put ODU's

made his shot and ECU took one last
time out.

Brazilian basketball
team to train at Minges
Erlka Leigh Hamby
Staff Writer
It is already 1996 and the Olym-
pics are drawing near and they are
a lot closer to Greenville than most
people realize.
ECU has been given the honor
of hosting the Brazilian Olympic
basketball team as they prepare for
the Olympic games in Atlanta.
The decision to bring the team
here was essentially made by the
chancellor, but the staff of the Re-
gional Development Center first
brought the idea to the front. Mr.
Al Delia, the associate vice chancel-
lor of regional development, inter-
acts closely with the state depart-
ment of commerce, and the com-
merce personnel mentioned to him
that they were trying to bring Olym-
pic teams here to North Carolina.
"We're very pleased, because
Brazil has been an international
power in basketball Delia said. The Brazilian team was im-
Mr. Delia put together infor- pressed with the facilities at ECU
mation on ECU and what the school especially Minges Coliseum. They fo-
had to offer to teams who might con- cused their attention on the weight
sider using ECUs'
facility as a train-
ing site. This in-
formation ended
up in the hands
of Mr. Raimundo
Azevedo, who
represents the
Brazilian team,
and he decided to
check out the
campus.
A number of
teams will be

The ECU women's basketball
team gave a hard fought effort against
the number 15 team
in the country, but
still came up short.
The Lady Pi-
rates fell to the Lady
Monarchs 75-56. Fri-
day night's game
against Old Domin-
ion was special for
more than one rea-
son. Head Coach
Anne Donovan was
an ail-American at
ODU in her college
playing years and
served as the Mon-
archs assistant from '8995. Donovan
helped recruit many of the players on
the Monarch team, and Friday night
her new team was battling against her
old team.
ODU's Head Coach Wendy Larry,
had never coached on opposite sides
of the court against Donovan.
"I think it's kind of interesting
to coach against her. because 1 think
our teams in a lot of respects have
similar styles Larry said. "They play
real solid, aggressive defense. She

Donovan changed her philosophy 1
think, somewhat to match with our
size, and played a nice match up zone,
and they play hard
Unfortunately, the Lady Pirates
couldn't produce a win, but hung
tough with the Lady Monarchs
throughout the first half.
ODU won the tip-off. but the Lady
Pirates scored first after a Tomekia
Blackmon shot in the lane. That put
ECU ahead 2-0, and would prove to
be the only time the Lady Pirate's
would lead.
At the 15:18 mark
Donovan called a time
out, seeing her Lady
Pirate's down 6-11. Af-
ter the time out, Shay
Hayes cut ODU's lead
to 8-11 after a 3'
jumper.
This was Hayes'
third start of the sea-
son replacing Tracey
Kelley. who is out in-

ing a bruised larynx in

season. Laurie Ashenfelder got her
second start of the season in Cagle's
place.
Donovan knows how important
it is to have her starters healthy and
in the game.
"I think it the injuries hurts us
a great deal, in particular in the paint"
Donovan said.
The Lady Pirate's biggest deficit
was 19 points, but after another time-
out ECU came roaring lack with nine
unanswered points. Five of those
points came from Justine Allpress and
four from Blackmon.
ECU went into the locker room
down 26-36. Blackmon led the Lady
Pirates with 14 points and three re-
bounds, while Allpress had six points
and Hayes contributed four.
The Lady Pirates continue to
improve from the free throw line with
each game. Posting an .857 percent-
age for the first half, the Lady Pirates
missed one free throw and went 6-7.
ODU shot .250 and went 1-4 from the
line.
"We've been concentrating a lot
on free throws Allpress said. "Once
you get to the foul line you have to
execute and you have to put it down.
That's what we've been trying to do
The second half was bleak for
ECU. The Lady Pirates struggled to
get their offense together and turn-
overs plagued ECU.
ECU had 35 turnovers for the
game, while ODU had 20. That was
something that really hurt for ECU.
"You cannot not talk about the
turnovers Donovan said. "With 18
at half-time and 35 for the game there
is no way you can not bring that up
as something huge in the game
"You cant be satisfied when you
have as many turnovers as we did
Allpress added. "We turn the ball over
ourselves, it wasn't necessarily ODU's
defense
ODU came out quickly and
scored, and ECU didn't get a shot off
until the 17:27 mark, off an Allpress
jumper. The scoring for the Lady Pi-
rates came slowly at first, but eventu-
ally they began to get into the swing
of things.
But with every shot the Lady Pi-
rates wouid make, ODU came back
and matched their shots. The Lady
Monarchs three biggest leads were 26
points each in the second half.
ECU, eventually cut that lead
down to 17 in the final moments of
the game, but just could not overcome
ODU's tall back court
"They definitely had a big height
advantage on us Allpress added.
ODU had five players over six feet
tall who played, while ECU had only
one over six feet that being freshman
Beth Jaynes. With Kelley and Cagle
out the Lady Pirates were limited with
their size.
The Lady Pirate's never backed
down, however, and continued to play
hard even when things weren't going
their way. ECU lost the contest by 19
points, but they did hustle and play
r
till the end. P
"From the team's point of view
I'm semi-satisfied Allpress said. "We
played hard and we stuck with it and
didn't give up. We played through to
the end
Donovan believes her players
stuck with what they had hoped to
accomplish.
"1 think 98 percent we followed
the game plan Donovan stated. "Our l
goal was to take away the paint and if
we gave up anything it was the pe-

Allpress led all scorers with 20
points and seven rebounds. Blackmon
added 16 points and had a tremen-
dous game, despite having a death in
her family earlier in the week. Hayes
and Jaynes each contributed eight
points.
The loss drops ECU to 14 in the
CAA and 5-8 overall. The Lady Pirates
will be on the road this Friday against
William & Mary. Tip-off is slated for

go when they have time off, yet the
town itself is not so big that it is a
distraction.
The Regional Devleopment staff
had little time to prepare for the visit
from the Brazilian staff. Team rep-
resentatives were impressed with
how well the staff of ECU performed
on such short notice.
The team will arrive around the
Fourth of July and will be housed
in either Slay or Umstead. They will
spend a little over a week training
and preparing for the games in At-
lanta. There is the possibility of one
or more exhibition games being
played in Williams Arena while they
are here. Around July 17, the Bra-
zilians are expected to leave and
travel to Atlanta for the actual
games.
The school does not expect to
make any kind of profit from the
team training here and is not charg-
ing any fees for the use of the facili-
ties. However, if an exhibition game
were to be played, any profit made
from the game would be shared with
the Brazilian team.
ECU is hosting the Brazilian
team mainly to be a good neighbor
and a good representative of the
United States and North Carolina.
The Brazilian team's choice of ECU
has brought the school to the atten-
tion of other teams, especially teams
interested in basketball facilities.
Although ECU wants to be hos-
pitable, Delia said that too many
teams on campus could possibly in-
terfere with the students who will
be here for summer school. Right
now the development center is only
considering having two teams on
campus, with 10 to 15 members on
each team.
"It is an honor for them to
choose ECU Delia added.

Dozens more try to sneak into their
luxury hotel for a peek, an auto-
graph, and who knows what else?
The 'Boys are back in town.
"That was about as rewarding
and exciting as getting off any plane
anywhere Dallas Cowboys owner
Jerry Jones said Sunday night after
the rousing reception his NFC cham-
pions received from the folks in Ari-
zona, where the Super Bowl will be
played next Sunday. "I was reminded
of the great fans we have out here
The Cowboys seemingly have
them everywhere. It didn't seem to
matter to anyone that the AFC
champion Pittsburgh Steelers
weren't around yet; they arrive to-
day. Some people, particularly the
oddsmakers who have the Steelers
as 13-point underdogs, apparently
wonder if they should show up at
all.
For one day, at least, the Cow-
boys certainly were enough. Secu-
rity was tight and few fans slipped
through into the mountainside ho-
tel housing America's Team. Still,
the airport greeting made it clear
this also is Arizona's Team - at least
in this Super Bowl.
"Until we arrived, it hadn't even
hit me that the Super Bowl is in
Phoenix, where we have such a great
group of fans Jones said. "Before
the Cardinals were here, this was

ODU came out after the time out
and fouled Kerner. Kerner put ECU
ahead by three after making both his
free throws. Poag tried to get ODU
back in the game with a last minute
attempt, but the off balanced shot
wouldn't fall. With two seconds left,
Basham was fouled and nailed his two
free throws and sent ODU home with
their first CAA loss.
Head Coach Joe Dooley knew this
wouldn't be an easy game, and when
it came down to the end he had confi-
dence in his players.
"There are times when you think
they (the players) are going to hang
their heads and they don't Dooley
said. "They just come back and keep
fighting and there is a lot of things to
learn and it makes it a lot easier to
learn when vou win
Second year Head Coach Jeff
Capel knew his players didn't play up
to their potential, and that ECU took
advantage of that
"East Carolina played a very good
basketball game Capel said. "I
thought they really competed on a
high level
Basham ended the night with 17
points, while Kerner added 14 points
and 10 rebounds. Meadows finished
with 11, Bryant with 10 and Rippey
with seven.
"All the credit has to go to East
Carolina, they deserved to win Capel
added.
Hodge, who is ODU's leading
scorer, finished with only seven points.
Shutting him down was a big part of
the Pirate's victory.
"We were fortunate tonight he
didn't have a big night, and he has
had big nights against us historically
Dooley added.
Tony Parham, a key player for
ECU, had an off night due to hip in-
jury. Despite playing 28 minutes,
Parham only scored two points, but
did have four rebounds and four as-
sists. For Parham, it was hard to come
in and out of the game and play only
a few minutes at a time.
"Basically what I was trying to
do when I was coming in and out was
do what was best for the team
Parham said. "I knew I would be lim-
ited in some things I could do, but I
know one thing I can do is run the
offense
Junior guard transfer Morris
Grooms, who came off the bench and
provided the Pirates with five points,
is continuing to improve with each
game. Grooms saw 20 minutes of play-
ing time and along with five points
he had three assists, one block and
four rebounds.
"Mo did a lot of nice things and
he does a lot of things to help us
Dooley said. "He's just a guy who
gives us a quick pick-up, and he did
once again tonight"
The attendance for the game was
6,735, and that made for a tough at-
mosphere for the Monarch.
"This is one of the toughest
places in the league to play Capel
said. "The fans are great and they get
on you. 1 hear everything they are
saying and what they say is meant to
inspire the team and they are not de-
rogatory
ECU'S next contest will be tomor-
row night against Richmond. Al-
though the Spiders are 05 in the CAA,
the Pirates know not to take them
lightly.
"They're a good team and we're
just going to have to come out ready
to play Basham said.

COWBOYS from page 13
All-Pro safety Darren Woodson,
who grew up in the Phoenix area
and played at Arizona State - in the
very stadium where the 30th Super
Bowl will take place - hardly looks
at this as a road trip.
"When I heard Phoenix got a
Super Bowl, 1 knew I'd have a
chance to be in it with this team
Woodson said. "It's almost like a
homecoming for us when we play
the Cardinals and hear our fans. It's
almost a homefield edge, and our
fans make a lot of noise.
"We know this stadium. We've
been here every year and we're 6-2
here
Not that returning home for a
Super Bowl is easy for Woodson,
who has been bombarded by ticket
requests.
"It's a good feeling he admit-
ted. "There is more pressure, with
my family and friends I'm hear-
ing from cousins from way, way
back
Getting here early might be a
wise move. While the Steelers check
in and then almost immediately have
to meet the media, the Cowboys get
a chance to kick back, do a little so-
cializing and, well, play the role of
rock star. Which, at least in the cases
of Troy, Emmitt, Michael and Deion
- do we really need surnames? -
seems apropos.
"I think the Super Bowl is al-
ways a new experience, no matter
when or where or who you play
said fullback Daryl Johnston, hardly
a media megastar but one of the best
players at his position in the game.
"Because of what we get in Dallas,
all the attention there and every-
where we go. we might be more used
to it.
"But we all realize the main
purpose of being here, and I don't
think any of the players will be dis-
tracted or misled. They know we
have a lot of unfinished work. I don't
think we have to worry about our
guys being in awe or thinking this
is a big party
The Super Bowl has been a
blast for the NFC since 1984. Eleven
straight victories and counting. It's
a legacy the S elers aren't a part
of - they're 4-0 in the title game, but
haven't gotten this far since the
1979 season.
That AFC slide is another bur-
den the Steelers carry with them
when they get off the plane today.
And when they are queried about it
all week. And, of course, when they
take the field at Sun Devil Stadium.
"We realize at some point the
AFC is going to win them Troy
Aikman said. "We just hope it's not
this year. We're here to make sure
it isn't this year
