Course pays off
A non-credit course on how to make your money last is being offered
through the School of Business and Professional Programs.
The course started up again this past Monday and is being taught
by Dr. Joseph Kiely, a finance professor.
Investment Strategies for the 90s is a course that is being held on
six consecutive Monday evenings from 6:30-9:30. The course is being
offered in two phases. Phase I is for ages 45 and under and began on
January 22. Phase II is for ages over 45 and will begin on March 11. This
course is being held in the General Classroom Building, room 1028.
There are no qualifications needed to sign up for this course. The
purpose for the two phases is that the class is geared toward two differ-
ent groups- young professionals that want to invest in their futures and
possibly even the futures of their children and older couples looking
toward retirement. This course will focus on the immediate concerns of
the two groups.
Suzy Mozer, a graduate assistant in Professional Programs said that
not many students are interested in taking this course because it is ca-
tered more towards those who currently have income.
"About 30-50 percent of the attendants are faculty Mozer said.
"Some graduate students do attend, however traditionally aged students
usually do not. This class is open to the general public and no one should

Overdose kills MU student
A preliminary autopsy revealed what killed Daniel Berrey, but questions
remain about the manner of his death.
The 19-yearold computer science major was found dead in his room in
Wolpers Hall at the University of MissourhColumbia (MU) on Oct. 31.
Berrey died of an overdose of diphenhydromine, according to a toxicology
report released by the Office of the Medical Examiner.
How the chemical got into Berrey's body is still under investigation by the
MU police and the medical examiner. Whether the student's death was acciden-
tal or intentional is also still under investigation

contest was for the students to pre-

were given only 12 hours to pre

have decided to call a halt to a grade
strike rather than lose their spring
semester teaching jobs.
At noon Jan. 15, the first day of

to unionize. Since December, nearly
200 teaching assistants have withheld
fall semester grades to force Yale to
recognize their union, the Graduate

The East Carolinian
The two major construction sites that have been "beautifying"
our campus for so long now just won't go away. Delay after delay
has hit the projects, and they're lingering like a stray dog around
the west end of campus. Many of us are beginning to wonder if we'll
ever see the new library or rec center reach completion.
The university must be tired of hearing us bitch about this stuff
by now, and quite frankly, we're tired of bitching about it When the
rec center plans were first announced, debate raged over whether
or not we really needed it
That didn't matter, we were told. We were getting it whether we
needed it or not Whether we wanted it or not Besides, we were
told, it would be great in some vague way. And since it was going to
be paid out of money that was stockpiled just to build it we the
students wouldn't have to lay out one thin dime for its construc-
tion. So we didn't have a right to bitch.
That was more than two years ago and at least that many con-
tractors ago, and the damn thing's still unfinished. There have been
unforeseen delays, we've been told. The weather, a constant nag-
ging pain here in Greenville, has held up construction. That's cool;
Of course, it probably doesn't help out that every contractor
we do business with seems to go belly-up within a year of inking the
deal. It's like there's a curse on this place or something. But that's
also understandable; the university couldn't foresee the bad busi-
ness sense of others. Neither can we really expect them to be aware
of all the gypsy curses flying against the school.
And construction always takes longer than originally planned.
Problems like bad weather, poor business sense and curses arise all
the time to delay the swift completion of large buildings. We've all
seen the movies.
But if you look downtown, you'll discover that the city of
Greenville has built a new fire and police headquarters complex. It
was started well after the rec center construction, and our dedi-
cated public servants are alreadv moved into their new home.
It sits not more than five or six blocks from the rec center, too.
Which makes us wonder how much of a problem the weather has
really been this past year.
And then there's the matter of all that money that was laid
aside for construction. Apparently, the university has been augment-
ing that cash with a percentage of our student fees.
How large of a percentage? Well, TEC called the Cashier's of-
fice to nail down that figure, we were told to call the rec center for
Yes, we were told to call the non-operational, partially con-
structed rec center. We'd be surprised if they had the indoor plumb-
ing ready to go in that place, much less a functional office. The
secretary's would Je running around in hard hats, for God's sake!
Anyway, there are some obvious problems surrounding our cam-
pus beautification projects, and we here at TEC just thought you'd
like to know.

Healthy habits eat students
Understanding our bodies is an
important element in leading a healthy
lifestyle. Students stuggle with the pres-
sures of college life - eating healthy
and exercise is far from toppriority for
many. We are too stressed, rushed, tired
from studying or partying last night to
worry about what we stuff into our bod-
ies before class. This is a major problem
on campus, and I must admit that I am
My resolution for this year is to
treat my body better than I have in the
past I would like to forget the bad hab-
its of late night pizza from Papa Olivers,
greasy Chinese food, many Burger King
breakfasts on the run and especially
too many servings of Ben & Jerry's
Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Fudge
Brownie. I am getting tempted right
this second, control, I just need some
solid willpower. The results of this "en-
ergy" food from the past has taken its
toll on my body. I look and feel great
No, truthfully, I feel worn down and
my jeans are too tight I know I am not
alone in this stuggle to eat right and
exercise the buldge away.
Everywhere people look these
days, magazines, billboards and obnox-
ious television advertisements scream
at us lazy Americans to get off our
couches and eat their products and
workout with Nordic Track, or any num-
ber of those gadget that look like mod-
ern torture chambers. Sure, they make
it look so darn easy, and do you ever
see a heavy person on those ads? No,
never. The model is slim, gorgeous, tan
and looks so happy doing her little
tricks in front of millions of viewers who
are sitting on their butts watching.
I know exercise is important and
I try my best to keep myself on an exer-
cise regimine, and eat well, but my good
intentions do not always keep me mo-
tivated. Society puts young people
uner enormous pressure to fit in.

There's one way to look, one way to

these life-threating disorders, because

The latest Slim Fast television ad
I saw, said that you can "replenish"
your body with their vitamin loaded
shakes. Their motto: "losing weight

to eat three full meals a day, my body
would kick out of starvation mode and

additional five to 10 pounds. I guess
my body was trying to protect itself in
case I got another crazy diet idea.
The media is not helping young
women in America. In addition to the
bombardment of television ads, we see
magazines full of slim beauties dairy,
supermodels so thin they could slide

I am not a diet and exercise ex-
pert I am just like you trying to work-
out eat healty and accept my body at
its potential (not society's goal). What-
ever weightloss and exercise goals you
have for yourself, remember you are in
charge. Treat your body with kindness,
nourish yourself with healthy food and
fluids (H20 is excellent), and find a fit-
ness activity you really enjoy. You don't
have to be a superstar to be in good
shape, or succeed by any measure but
your own; you just have to accept your-
self with pleasure and cut yourself
some slack now and then.

Journalism lost to culture
Call me a sentimentalist, but I
often wonder what happened to truth
in journalism? I may be beginning to
sound like my parents, but, like them,
I long for the days when journalism
was more than the latest atrocity.
Everyday, it's OJ another mur-
der, another teenager convicted of
selling drugs or civil wars in foreign
countries. What happened to the good
stuff? I know it's out there, but unfor-
tunately today's journalists are trained
to cover politics and policing - not
Journalists like Charles Kuralt are
icons of the past, people of the '60s.
Kuralt, whose claim to fame "On the
I -tad has become just another retiree
lost in the limelight to sensationalists
who are taking over the television
waves. We've lost focus of the good in
life and seem to thrive on tribulations.
Just turn on the tube, it's everywhere.
"Teenage homosexuals, cross-dressing,
headbanging mothers and "Fifty-
year-old mothers who can't keep their
eyes, and hands off their daughters'
boyfriends are everyday topics.
Cosby's Tempest Bledsoe and the Par-
tridge family's Danny whatever-his-last-
name-is have put those who started
the talk show phenomenon out of
business. Donohue, the first of talk
television, recently annovnc.d the
cancellation of his show.
Don't get me wrong, the last thing
Seeing Kuralt on
television is like
I care about watching is talk televi-
sion, and I don't think that Donohue's
cancellation is the end of the world,
but I just want to know why honest
journalists like Kuralt are dropping
from the business like flies. Anyone
who has ever seen Kuralt's "North
Carolina is my Home" knows what a
great sense of pride that program can
instill in a North Carolina native.
Kuralt has a knack for taking noth-
ing and making it into a story full of
life and feeling. As an inspiring jour-
nalist, Kuralt was challenged to set out
on the read in search of stories about
nothing. Kuralt's "On the Road" be-
came a daily must in the homes of
many Americans. Years later, Kuralt
published a book by the same name.
Kuralt could bring tears to the
eyes of his readers by reminiscing
times with his grandparents, who with
his parents, raised him on their
Wilmington farm. Kuralt's most recent
book America is a best seller, not be-
cause of its shock value, but because
of its truth. Kuralt unlike television
journalists such as Barbara Walters
and Diane Sawyer, doesn't seek out
famous figures. Instead, Kuralt relies
on everyday people - people like his
grandparents who taught the value
of honesty and truth.
Seeing Kuralt on television is lik-
ing seeing your grandfather. He's
sweet He's honest and his audience
knows they can expect perfection
from his journajism. Whether he's
interviewing some little old man who
has never seen a television or the
president of the country, you know
you won't be disappointed. That is un-
less you're so desensitized that you
don't even notice the blood and guts
smeared across your TV screen night
People need sentimentality to ex-
ist In a world full of death and vio-
lence, it's people like Kuralt (and Andy
Griffith) who remind us what life's re-
ally like. Unfortunately, days like
Thanksgiving and Christmas, when
everyone seems to be happy and thank-
ful, only come around once a year.
Letters to the Editor
Conspiracy runs rampant
To the Editor,
We the students and the faculty
of East Carolina University were in-
formed in writing, as long ago as 1992,
that abond referendum had been ap-
proved by the North Carolina General
Assembly for the construction of the
recreation and fitness center as well
as the new library annex on the west
side of campus. It was our understand-
ing that there was also a surplus of
billions of dollars in the state budget,
and it was high time that ECU re-
ceived its fair share of this benefit
Also the increasing tax revenues from
sales tax and ad valorem tax on auto-
mobiles was more than sufficient to
maintain the upkeep and utilities for
these structures well into the future.
Also, our student fees for athletics
were being increased by 11 to sup-
port these projects and the additional
seating that was and is proposed for
Minges Coliseum Williams Arena and
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, those two
structures being dedicated solely to
revenue producing varsity athletics.
Now we are told that when the
new recreation and fitness center is
completed, once the fraud corruption
and graft of it's former construction
company can be unraveled, that we
the students and faculty are expected
to pay membership fees of $100 and
$240 respectively to be admitted to
the new facility, and existing exercise
and sports facilities on campus in
Christenbury Gymnasium will be re-
placed by a computer center to re-
place the antequated (sic system in
Austin building, and R.O.T.C. pro-
grams will take over the remaining
space. If this is not a genuine con-
spiracy on the part of the ruling class
of the military industrial complex,
will somebody, pray tell, explain what
The weight room in Minges was
removed in 1994, and the Sports
Medicine Building is basically off lim-
its to the average student who isn't
a varsity athlete. Should our priori-
ties be centered around the concept
of profit maximization for a small
clique of modernizers, or the ben-
efit of all the students and faculty
of East Carolina University?

credit the football team or program. I
just wish the Marching Pirates got just
a smidgen of thanks for making the
20 hour bus ride to Memphis and back
(as opposed to the team's flight).
Congratulations should also go
out to the cheerleaders for their sup-
port and putting up with the band

congratulations to all who partici-
pated in the Liberty Bowl '95 victory.

No weapons allowed
To the Editor,
The focus of the letter is to con-
vince students to be more aware of the
university weapons policy and the
state law. Last year reported incidents
dealing with weapons possession in-
creased from the previous year. There
are some students who don't take the
time to read about the weapons policy,
thus they may not be aware of the
penalties involved. Possession of a
weapon on campus owned property
not only violates the rules of the
school but also the state. The policy
states any member of the university
community who violates North Caro-
lina General Statute 14.269.2 pertain-
ing to weapons on campus is subject
both to prosecution and punishment
in accordance with state criminal law
and criminal procedures and to disci-
plinary proceedings by the university.
In some circumstances it is a felony
to possess or carry an open or con-
cealed weapon on educational prop-
erty. First time offenders could face
twelve to fifteen months in prison
without parole. The Clue Book states
violation of the school code of con-
duct letter T and W is grounds for
suspension from the university for one
semester if the weapon is a knife, BB
gun, or an air rifle. t one year sus-
pension would be given if the weapon
�� j .jeep�����'�a���
is a gun, rilfesic, pistol or powerful
explosive. Try to avoid situations
where a weapon could be brought on
campus. For example, if you go hunt-
ing don't forget to take your rifles out
of your vehicle before coming to
school. Also if you have to switch cars
with a buddy who keeps hisher gun
in the car, remember to take it out of
the car. Even a small pocket knife
could get you suspended for a semes-
ter, so be aware of the penalties. To
get more information on the weapons
policy consult your clue book and
weapons policy pamphlet.

Thespians of Diversity
esurrect MLK legacy
A young black couple pay tribute
to Martin Luther King, Jr. at his me-
morial. As they stand holding all the
King merchandise they bought at the
gift shop, a strange, confused man ap-
pears before them. To the couple's
amazement, they realize the man is a
resurrected Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
However, this is a King with a '60s vi-
sion still intact The '90s he is witness
to are not exactly what he had ex-
pected, or hoped for.
Thus begins Reginald Watson's
original play and the latest perfor-
mance from the ECU Thespians of Di-
versity. I Have Seen the Mountain Top
and It Don't Look So Good is a his-
tory play that addresses past and cur-
Vent social issues in a very' engaging
manner. After writing and directing A
Kwanzaa Story, a play depicting the
lives of several fictional Africans and
African Americans throughout history,
Watson knew that he and his thespian
group had more to say.
History plays are a challenge by
their very nature, but Watson's script
presents historical fact and voices so-
cial commentary without souading
preachy. His three main characters (Dr.
King, Wanda, and Johnny) each repre-
sent a certain life perspective on the
African American experience.
As Dr. King, Terrence Dove gives
a subtle, toned-down performance that
adds a nice depth to a character who
is shocked and bewildered by the world
he has been thrown back into.
Latisha Lisane and Darrell
Armstead play the couple. While
Armstead's Johnny is headstrong and
stubborn, he is not stupid. Armstead
provides some nice comedic touches
to lighten an otherwise heavy mood.
Lisane layers her Wanda with a will-
ingness to believe in the impossible and
a desire to help change things.
The focus of the play is on the
acting, writing and directing. Partly
due to a limited budget and partly by
choice, the set and the lighting are
minimalistic But Watson uses his bare
stage to great effect by incorporating
other artistic genres within the play.
Along with the play itself, audiences
will be treated to live musical perfor-
mances and a dance interpretation of
Stevie Wonder's "Visions
Still, the selling point of the pro-
duction is the subject matter. The Dr.
King we are presented with is an inter-
esting one because we view the man
from all angles. We learn that not all
African Americans were on Dr. King's
side, we get glimpses of him as a fam-
ily man and a husband, and we discover
that perhaps Dr. King's death may have
actually helped his people's cause by
transforming the man into a symbol.

Everything looks bright
For four years now, the six-man
band of Everything has been a heavy-
weight in the downtown Greenville
music scene. The Washington, DC
natives have established themselves
as one of the most successful bands
touring the Southeastern club circuit,
forming a grassroots following that
has grown dramatically over the years.
The name says it all with these
guys; their music is as diverse as the

an incredible gift of being able to bring
the audience into the show. Drummer
Nathan Brown does a good bit of the
singing for the band, trading off and
harmonizing with Honeycutt
Newly acquired keyboardist and
trombone extraordinaire Wolfe Quinn
has added a musical intensity that was
greatly needed at a time when the
band was beginning to become a
shade predictable. Bassist David
Slankard, saxophone specialist Rich
Bradley and guitarist Stephen Van
Dam bring it all together to produce
a sound that can rotate from funk-
rock to jazz.
Anything goes with Everything.
After an extremely hard-driven song,
they can transform themselves into a
Mexican-sounding sextet that some-
how ended up drunk in New Orleans.
It's like a fiesta, DC-style. This isn't a
band that you can just sit back and
drink beers to; these guys put on a
show that packs much more than just
background music for a social setting.
"We really try to hold people's
attention at our shows Honeycutt

A Slam is a competition with
about 15 contestants who compete in

Over the course of an entire year there are so many
records released that it would be impossible for any one
individual to keep up with each and every title that comes
out That's why we have music critics.
There is nothing a music reviewer likes more than
listening to record after miserable record so that they
can then tell the general public what albums are worth
killing for and which albums are so heinous that it
would be better to maim yourself than to
listen to them. Unfortunately, critics can
only write a limited number of reviews
in one year.
Fortunately, I've been given
the chance to fill in those gaps by
telli6 you about 10 albums you may
have missed in the last year. They are
in no particular order and each of
them easily garners an "A" rating (if
not an "A" in some cases).
Of course, some of you are sure to have heard of
these albums. If so, consider yourselves cool. If you
haven't then you've got quite a smorgasbord in front of
you. Dig in.
1. Link Wray and the Raymen, Mr. Guitar, The Com-
plete Swan Recordings - He's still around, but Link Wray
made his best music back in the late '50s and early '60s. This
double disc of tracks he did back then showcases his destruc-
tive creativity on the guitar. You want fast? You want loud?
You want bleeding fingers and broken strings? Then look no
farther, my friend. Especially nice are Wray's covers of the
Batman TV theme and the intro to the Shadow radio pro-
gram. That's way out man.
2. John Patton, Boogaloo - Although this jazzfunk al-
bum was cut way back in 1968, it is technically a new release
this year. Blue Note, the label for jazz aficionados, has kept
this superbad record on the shelf for 27 years, only recently
releasing it as part of their Rare Groove series (this entire
series is recommended, too). Patton here proves to be the
ultimate acid jazz pianist which is amazing considering that
musical form didn't even exist in his day. If it's groovin' you
like to do, then throw this bad boy on and.you will never stop.
3. Squatweiler, All Tempo Hot Pants - This
Winston-Salem, NC power trio has been gar-
nering a lot of press recently, as well as
high praise from stars of the indieal-
ternative scene. Henry Rollins says
they're his favorite new band. Boss
Hog invited them up on stage at a re-
cent gig at the Cat's Cradle in Chapel
Hill (although they were too shy to actu-
ally accept). Mitch Easter (former REM pro-
ducer and leader of Let's Active) absolutely loves
them. Yet they still haven't gotten that coveted recording
contract Because of this you might have to take a drive to
Greensboro or Winston-Salem to track down their new al-
bum. It's worth the trip.

Excessive Use of
the Passive Voice
While some critics would ar-
gue that this album is a positive
experience, I'm left wondering what
"If I had a machete, none of
this would be happening is a
quote on the cover of this band's
promo pack. The album itself is cov-
ered with a picture of an acoustic
guitar, painted in American colors,
that is about to be run over by a
bulldozer. This all comes from an
album with the title Excessive Use
of the Passive Voice. Does this
seem like a positive experience? I
don't think so!
Although this album is no
walk in the clouds, it still has its
shining stars. From the creepy
monotone of singersongwriter
Angelo Gianni to the variety of in-
struments used, this album is safp
from going under. However, is "not
going under" what a band really
Treadmill Trackstar, among
other things, does have persever-
ance. The band consists of Angelo
Gianni on vocals and guitar, Heidi
Brown on the cello, Chris Brigg on
bass and backing vocals, and Tony
Lee on drums. Most of the album is
very original, but some people will
not be pleased due to how similar
Gianni's voice is to Billy Corgan's
of Smashing Pumpkins. Don't get
me wrong, Smashing Pumpkins are
unbelievable, but too much of any-
thing can make you sick as a dog.
Due to the lack of originality
on the vocal end, a shadow of doubt
hovers over the album. 1 really
couldn't get into the groove. It is
definitely an acoustic album, but a
raspy, grungy voice doesn't fit into

credentials. That, 1 like.
Voice actors, you say?
"Duckman" gives "The Simpsons" a
serious run for its money. Duckman
himself is voiced by Jason Alexander,
who has risen to fame as the guy in
the Rold Gold Fat-Free pretzel com-
mercials. Oh. and he's on "Seinfeld
too. Nancy Travis (So I Married An
Axe Murderer) plays against type as
Duckman's sister-in-law, Bernice. And
those are just the leads.
As do "The Simpsons
"Duckman" tries to grab an amazingly
diverse and cool array of voice actors
to do guest shots. The big difference
here, and another strong selling point
for "Duckman is that "The
Simpsons" gets cool mainstream (i.e.
recognizable to the general, often
clueless, public) folks to guest sta
whereas "Duckman" goes for simply
Names like Michelle Pfeiffer. Paul
McCartney, Elizabeth Taylor and
Johnny Carson have guested on "The
Simpsons "Duckman" touts Tim
Curry, John Astin (the original Gomez
Addams). Amanda Plummer The
Fisher King), Sandra Bernhard, David
Duchovney ("X-Files"), Lisa Kudrow
("Friends") and Penthouse magazine
founder Bob Guccione in its group of
voice actors. You make the call as to
which one you think is cooler.
So where does "Duckman" go
wrong for me? The best way I can ex-
plain my point is to piss off a lot of
people, so here goes. There are those
who think Jim Carrey movies are re-
ally, really funny (and you know who
you are), and those who don't. Why?
Because the joke is taken too far for
some people. I, personally, cringe ev-
ery time some drunken fool pulls that
"May I ass you a question?" line from
Ace Ventura at a party.
A similar example from
"Duckman" would be the grand-
mother who. let's face facts, is a fart
machine, a veritable frenzied factory
of flagrant flatulence. Doing this once
an episode can be pretty funny (espe-
cially when it makes her blanket flut-
ter like a mainsail in a squall), but
come on! Much of "Duckmans hu-
mor is like this - taken that one step
The first episode of this season,
called "Noir Gang was really nice,
though. Done entirely in black, and
white, it was a spoof of the film noir
style of crime dramas in the 1930s
and '40s. Duckman and his pig part-
ner. Cornfed (that's a nice joke!), in-
vestigate the murder of a stripper
(voiced by "Cheers" alumnus Bebe
Neuworth) that they both desired.
This was beautifully done, with "cam-
eos" from Humphrey Bogart, Peter
Lorre and a host of other faces from
the film noir past
Future episodes are to have riffs
on The Bridges of Madison County,
the Cold War thriller The Manchu-
rian Candidate and even the classic
"Star Trek" episode "Amok Time
which featured a horny Spock beat-
ing the hell out of Jim Kirk to impress
a woman who really doesn't want him
(whoo, sounds familiar). With ideas
like these, "Duckman" appears to be
on the right track, despite my reser-
How about this. I will make a
promise to you, the reader, to keep
an eye on "Duckman see that it lives
up to its hype and potential, and try
to keep my reservations about its bath-
room humor in check. But you have
to promise me that you'll never do any
more bad Jim Carrey impressions, or
make me watch Dumb and Dumber
ever again, except the karate scene
(which was pretty funny).
On a scale of one to 10,
"Duckman: Private DickFamily Man"
rates a promising seven.

4. Ben Lee, Grandpaw Would -1
am constantly amazed by the output
of this 16-year-old Australian rocker.
In his band Noise Addict he plays punk
with wit and pop with feeling. On this
solo album he approaches balladry and
vocal harmonizing coupled with acous-
tic instrumentation and reaches it as
easily as Matthew Sweet or Lou Barlow
can. If this is just the beginning for
Ben Lee, then he will be bigger than
Jesus. Hell, he'll be bigger than Neil
Young, for God's sake. You heard it
5. T. J. Kirk, T. J. Kirk - Who says
young people don't listen to jazz any-
more? It's just that they also listen to
funk and metal and rock and rap and
bluegrass and, well, you get the idea.
T. J. Kirk have obviously listened to all
of these things and somehow have put
them all together in a blender to pro-
duce one distinct sound. Even though
I know that the band name, T. J. Kirk,
stands for three influential jazz and
funk artists, 1 like to think it's also a
nod to old J. T. Kirk from Star Trek.
This band is definitely going where no
band has gone before.
6. Friends Of Dean Martinez, The
Shadow Of Your Smile - Best
Soundtrack of the Year, no question.
What, you never heard of the film?
That's probably because this band just
crafts instrumentais that sound like a
film score. Originally named Friends
of Dean Martin, the band pays hom-
age to spy films, westerns, surf music,
and lounge. If this was a real
soundtrack, then I personally guaran-
tee it would be an instant cult classic.
So relax, throw this record on, and
become your own Quentin Tarantino
or Robert Rodriguez by playing mov-
ies in your mind.

This is one smoky record. You can

the mist around you. Laid back and
jazzy, Spain definitely puts one in a

is Josh Haden, son of jazz great Charlie
Haden, and you can tell that he learned
everything he needed to at his father's
knee. For all those moody times when
you need the right music to get things
going, think of Spain.

features special guests of large stature

My advice to the band would be
to start over and not focus on a fixed

territories. If you don't, you'll never

While the band's new relationship
with Wolfe was strengthening, their re-
lationship with Capricorn was falter-
ing. As the New Year rolled in, Capri-
corn and Everything went their sepa-
rate ways, ending a short relationship
between the label and the band.

corn, it's just that our expectations
were different. They're going to con-
tinue to put out Labrador for us, we

So what's in the future for Every-

ning stages now Honeycutt said. "We

Everything knows that this is a
great time to be a hot band in this re-
gion. They have shared the stage at
one time or another with every band
from the Southeast that has recently
made it to the next level.
Bands such as Hootie, Dave
Matthews, Widespread Panic and
Edwin McCain have played the same
clubs, in front of the same college kids
that are checking out bands such as
Everything and Gibb Droll these days.
The band doesn't see the emerging
regional success as sands in the hour-
glass of fame passing them by.
"It seems logical to think that this
is a good time to jump to the next
level Honeycutt said. "But it all works
in cycles. Whether or not we make it
there now or what, we need to just
continue to make good music and get
more and more people into it Because
the more we play these bar scenes, the
more the grassroots following will fuel
Honeycutt admits that the constant
touring does take its toll at times.
"It's always frustrating when you're
on the road so much. It's been like that
from the start But that's what it's all
about: the hunger of it all. The frustra-
tion equals energy for us. and it gives
us an adventure of figuring how to bring

The East Carolinian
When Mike Hamrick was named
to be ECU'S Athletic Director last
spring, he had to fill some big shoes
of the departed Dave Hart. Hart had
brought ECU's athletic program to
a new level, and Hamrick knew the
Pirate fans would settle for no less.
Hamrick came to Greenville
and "took the bull by the horns" as
he immediately scheduled North
Carolina and North Carolina State
for future football contests. Hamrick
is closer everyday to getting ECU's
football program into a much antici-
I recently sat down with
Hamrick and spoke with him about
everything from conference affilia-
tion to ECU's progress in gender
Q: When Dave Hart left for
Florida St last spring, you actively
sought this job. What were some of
A- had been to East Carolina
before, and I had seen the kind of
support that this program has, not
only from Us students but from it's
alumni I can remember vividly the
Peach Bowl and all the ECU fans
that went to Atlanta. When I was
at Arkansas-Little Rock, I remem-
ber all the Pirate supporters that
were in Memphis for the 1994 Lib-
erty BowL I knew ECU had a good
support base, and 1 honestly believe
that if you have good facilities and
fan support not only from your stu-
dents, but your, alumni, then you
can be successful and competitive.
I saw all of that at East Carolina,
and that is the type of program that
I wanted to be associated with.
Q: What were some of the items
discussed at the recent NCAA con-
vention in Dallas?
A: The mair issue at the NCAA
convention was restructuring.
What that basically did was estab-
lish the chancellors and the presi-
dents at Universities as the main
decision makers in intercollegiate
athletics. It also laid out the man-
agement structure in intercolle-
giate athletics, a decision that I
believe was very positive and
needed to be done.
Q: Of course the big issue for
East Carolina lately has been it's
possible affiliation with Conference
USA. Was there much spoken about
East Carolina in Dallas?
.4: Conferences meet when
they get to the NCAA convention.
East Carolina met with the CAA,
and we dealt with issues in our re-
spective conference. Conference
USA did meet and I was told that
the Presidents of each university
did meet and expansions were dis-
cussed. The Conference USA presi-
dents did agree that they were in-
terested in expanding. It's no se-
cret that East Carolina is looking
to get conference affiliation, Con-
ference USA knows that and we
have had some preliminary discus-
sions with them, and along with the
Big East We have made it known
that we feel that we need to get into
a conference for our football pro-
gram, and where we are at this
point I really don't know. We've
done all that we can do, and now
it's just kind of wait and see.
Q: What do you tell Pirate fans
when they say, "well Conference
USA did not want us the first time,

the CAA crown on a high note. The
victory put both the men's and
women's teams at 4-0 in the CAA
standing, while having 8-1 (women's)
and 7-2 (men's) overall records. Mo-

Junior Henry Bunn won a trip
for two to Super Bowl XXX. The
contest was sponsored by the Dr.

Bunn heard the contest while

Bunn was in the area so he stopped
by the Burger King and entered one
slip, and one slip only.

time insurance broker was coming
back from a sale when he heard his
name over the radio as the contest

HAMRICK from page
ber the first time, and I don't think
it is right that Pirate fans label Con-
ference USA as not wanting East
Carolina. I believe it was one school
in particular, maybe another that
said well let's go into this confer-
ence and let's kind of take a wait
and see attitude with East Carolina.
Where 1 know four, maybe even five
schools greatly supported East
Carolina, because they know of our
quality athletic program.
Q: East Carolina's athletic bud-
get is on the lower scale of Division
I institutions in the NCAA. How
does ECU compete, money wise,
with other major universities?
A: We raise more money pri-
vately, we sell more season tickets,
we continue to get more money
from our radio and television
broadcasts, our students are very
supportive with their student activ-
ity fees. With the additional 12-
14,000 seats in Dowdy-Ficklen sta-
dium, that's an opportunity for
additional revenue. We'll try to put
more people in those seats, that's a
main way to get your budget up.
Q: A major issue in the NCAA
in recent years has been gender eq-
uity. What are some of your feelings
on this issue in particular?
A: I think we are making tre-
mendous progress here at East
Carolina in our gender equity.
We've paid close attention to it in
the short time that I have been here.
It's an issue that we have to deal
with enthusiastically, aggressively
and try to do the right things in
the area of gender equity. To do
those things you have to have the
funding, and we have to work hard
to get the funding, to do the things
in gender equity that we need to
Q: East Carolina has been
known to be a "stepping stone" for
some coaches. Are you scared that
with success in the athletic program
that you may lose some of your
A: I believe East Carolina can
no longer be viewed as a stepping
stone. East Carolina's athletic pro-
gram is one of the best in the coun-
try, and once we get our stadium
completed, and hopefully get into
a conference, play our in-state ri-
vals, and now with Minges Coli-
seum renovated, 1 think that ECU
is on the right track. Financially,
our coaches and staff's salaries are
becoming very competitive. We are
also at the point that if we'have
good coaches and they leave, we
can hire good coaches to replace
them because of what we have here
Q: Do you feel that it is very
important for the athletic depart-
ment to be in touch with the stu-
students. Secondly, because the stu-
dents fund us so well in my opin-
ion here with their student fees. I
think we need to be in touch with
them, we need to know what they
are thinking, we need to know what
they want from our program and
the students here become alumni.
Alumni is very important to our
program and my philosophy is if
that the student has a good experi-
ence while they are here, then
they're going to continue to support
you the rest of their life.
Q: How has it been working
with Chancellor Eakin?
A: It's been good. Dr. Eakin is
very supportive of athletics and at
the same time understands that ath-
letics needs to be kept into perspec-
tive. He has made it clear to me that
academics are important, and
about no NCAA violations. Dr.
Eakin is not afraid to win. He wants
to win, and be very successful.
You'll find him at all the athletic
events, and he is very supportive.
How to Save $SS in Your Apartment

body here at ECU is the heart and
soul of everything we do here. First
of all because our athletes are our

Seahawks from the Port City edged
the men's team and topped the Pirates
in the conference standings. Not to

It's no secret that both the Bucs
and the Seahawks will be gunning for
each other in this regional showdown.
This match-up will be Jan. 27 at 2 p.m.
on the campus of UNC-W.
Byington and Donlon have been
the most pleasant surprises for the
Seahawks this season. After watch-
ing most of last season from the end
of the UNCW bench, Byington has
claimed hold on a starting position
this year by pouring in 10.3 points
In his first season in the CAA,
Donlon has made himself known
quickly, draining over 48-percent of
three-pointers. However, he's
struggled at the charity stripe (51
percent) and has almost a one-to-one
