Around the State
Due to the previous weather con-
ditions, the Student Government As-
sociation (SGA) had a rather exten-
sive meeting Monday, Feb. 12, in or-
der to catch up with appropriations
and other important announcements.
Julie Thompson, SGA appropria-
tions chair, and Jonathan Phillips,
SGA rules and judiciary chair, spoke
up for a two-thirds vote to suspend
rules, which would allow for immedi-
ate funding and quickly pass certain
constitutions. The votes passed with
unanimous consent.
The New Generation Campus
Ministries was claimed as the first re-
ligious organization to be funded by
SGA on this campus.
During the voting session, Justin
Conrad, senior class president,
brought questions, pertaining to the
amount asked for to fund advertise-
ments, to the SGA representatives'
"They are a great group said Ian
Eastman, SGA president, in defense
for the organization during a period
of positive debate. "They have been
real patient. They have 60-plus mem-
bers and they do a lot for this cam-
pus. We need to think positive about
At the beginning of the meeting
a document showed a total available
balance of $67,676. During the cur-
rent academic year, SGA has appro-
priated $31,996 to student organiza-
"We've appropriated close to
$15,000 today Eastman said.
Many organizations were funded.
Eastman announced the new,
weekly executive office hours. Every
Tuesday and Thursday office doors
will be open from 11 a.m2 p.m. Indi-
vidual office hours will still be main-
tained at the officer's convenience.
Elections are right around the
corner. Official dates were announced.
Filing for a positionoffice begins
Tuesday, Feb. 27. The last day to file
will be Friday. March 1. Filing takes
place in the SGA office on the second
floor of Mendenhall Student Center.
Elections are set for March 27.
In addition to the appropriations
made, on Monday, six new SGA appli-
cants were screened and sworn in this
past Monday.

The UNC board of governors has
approved a $784,000 expansion plan
for three Allied health programs at
ECU. The allocation of these funds
will provide needed improvements and
growth in the departments of physi-
cal therapy, occupational therapy, and
communication sciences.
According to Dr. Harold P. Jones,
dean of allied heath sciences, in the
N.C. legislatures last session, the N.C.
board was given funds to distribute
between all the state universities' al-
lied health programs.
"Because East Carolina and UNC
Chapel Hill are the only two schools
in the UNC system with all three al-
lied health programs, these two
schools received the majority of the
money Jones said. "ECU is the larg-
est producer of allied health profes-
sionals in the state
The much needed money will al-
low more faculty support for all three
programs. This means that three de-
partments will be able to accept more
students into the OT, PT and commu-
nication science programs.
"There is a high demand for al-
lied health professionals in the job

dent in these programs will be offered
at least three jobs, offering from
$30,000 to $50,000 before they gradu-
Although there is a high demand
for allied health professionals, only a
chosen few get into these programs.
The average student applying at the
school of allied health has a GPA of
3.6 or more.
"There are not many schools, not
many slots and a high demand for
these professionals Jones said. "It is
not only a problem here in North Caro-
lina, it is a national problem
Because of requirements for cer-
tain faculty to student ratios for the
three accredited programs, the
School of Allied Health has a limited
"This infusion of money will give
us six new faculty members, operat-
ing expenses such as secretaries and
should give us the ability to buy new
equipment for these areas as well
Jones said.
The funds will also allow the
three departments to accept more
students. The expected increase will
be from 40 to 48 students for physi-
cal therapy, 28 to 36 students for oc-
cupational therapy and communica-
tion sciences and disorders will in-

The Walter B. Jones Alcohol and
Drug Abuse Treatment Center, lo-
cated at 2577 W. 5th St offers help
to those consumed in the tarmoil of
alcohol and substance abuse in a resi-
dential setting.
"Our center is a 76-bed residen-
tial treatment center said Director
Phillip Mooring, director of the cen-
ter. "In a year's time we admit ap-
proximately 1.200 patients and our
patients come to us from 38 counties
from the eastern part of the state
The majority of the center s pa-
tients pursue its services on a volun-
tary basis of admittance, and have first
attempted counseling in an out-pa-
tient setting.
If the patient and their counse-
lor feel a more intense form of treat-
ment is necessary, the patient is re-
ferred to the center through the
patient's community mental health
"The first effort for someone
drinking and drugging is always an
out-patient program Mooring said.
"If it's felt the patient has not been
successful, they can leave their envi-
ronment or get off the street and live
with us
Mooring said that treatment at
the center lasts about 21 days and
then patients are referred to continu-
ing counseling programs.
When the patient is first admit-
ted, the patient's needs are assessed
to determine the most beneficial pro-
gram of treatment. Once a treatment
program has been developed, the pa-
tient is involved in structured activi-
ties day and night.

Homecoming starts planning theme
Staff Reports
Do you think it is too early to start thinking
about your plans for homecoming? Though homecom-
ing is several months away, the ECU Home Coming Com-
mittee has been actively planning for next year's Home
Coming events.
"We start planning early because there is a lot to
do said Amber Huffman, chairperson of homecoming.
"There are a lot of little technical things. It is better to
start planning now so that things will be easier when
homecoming comes along
The theme for the 1996 Homecoming is
Homecoming week will include autograph signing
the selection of king and queen, can food drive. Pirate
Fest, a residence hall decorating contest, banner con-
test and the football game against Arkansas State.
The Homecoming Steering Committee planned the
activities for next year. People on this committee are
representatives from various organizations.
The float contest will follow the same guidelines
as they did this year. A third of the float has to repre-
sent the theme. Huffman said she believes this theme
is good because it will give students a broader topic to
work with when thinking of float designs.
Huffman said she was very pleased with 1995's
homecoming and hopes to have the same success next

An adjunct professor of criminal
justice and legal advisor to 'the Stu-
dent Government Association (SGA)
has announced his candiacy for district
court judge.
Galen Braddy, a
Washington County
native, currently prac-
tices law in a private
firm in Greenville. An
ECU alumnus, Braddy
played Pirate football
for two years. His
younger brother,
Steven, was a member.
of the '92 peach Bowl '� '����
team and the youngest
Braddy brother, Chris, was a freshman
linebacker this past season.
"Pitt County has given me many
opportunities Braddy said. "I want to
give something back. In my four years
of practicing law, I have seen people
become disgruntled with the legal sys-
"They complain of overcrowded
dockets and a lack of respect for them
as individuals. 1 want to turn it back
into a people's court, with a fair and
honest application of the facts to each
individual case. The cloth should be
cut to fit each particular situation
Braddy said.
Braddy said the district attorney
is elected by the people and for the
people and everyone in the courtroom
should be treated with respect
"Everyone, including the defen-
dants, victims of crime, law enforce-
ment people and those from the DA's
office should be given a fair opportu-
nity to be heard he said.
Braddy said he believes this elec-
tion should be important to students

court judge may, un-
fortunately, be one of
the elected officials
students are most
likely to encounter.

Olympians aren't the only special peoplepage

� Braddy to f md themselves in

since landlord dis-
putes and tickets are common legal
problems for them.
"The majority of students who call
me for legal advice have problems with
their rent or upkeep of their apart-
ments Braddy said. "Maybe their heat
isn't working properly or they experi-
ence difficulties getting back a deposit
I also get calls about domestic issues
and tickets.
"I can't represent students directly
because of my contract but I do advise
them of their legal rights. Students are
an important voice in the community.
I encourage them to be active, study
the issues, and become more aware.

New telephone

income tax filing
Stephanie Ann Eaton
Staff Writer
The IRS is helping taxpayers by
making filing taxes much easier this
The IRS is offering services
that allow people to file taxes over
the phone, receive refund checks
quicker and easier and make informa-
tion more available over the Internet.
An estimated 23 million taxpay-
ers will be able to file taxes over the
telephone through an electronic fil-
ing system called Telefile.
Telefile is an automated system
available in Spanish or English and
can be reached anytime day or night.
The program was set up to help tax
agencies with paperwork and will help
reduce human error.
"The new filing system will help
streamline the government said
Chris DeSimone, an account execu-
tive who handles the IRS for August
Lang & Husak, Inc. "It will cut down
on human error and it will us cut down
the number of staff that the govern-
ment needs to handle taxes
To be eligible for Telefile, taxpay-
ers must be single with no depen-
dents, have a taxable income of less
than $50,000, have filed a 1040-EZ
form previously, live at the same ad-
dress as last year and have received
Telefile information in their federal
tax booklet mailed to their home.
The Telefile system computes fed-
eral tax returns after filers enter re-
quested income information from
their W-2 forms using a touch-tone
phone. Telefile will calculate the
earned income tax credit for eligible
callers. Then Telefile will announce on
the phone how much refund, if any,
you will receive. If you owe money,
Telefile will tell you the amount All
taxes must be paid by April 15.

"There is no guarantee but the IRS
tries to get the refund checks out
within three weeks
The whole process will take ap-
proximately 10 minutes. You first must
fill out a worksheet, then you make
the call and it's done. The Telefile call
is completed by entering a Personal
Identification Number(PIN). The
taxpayer's PIN acts as his signature.
The taxpayer also uses his PIN if they
have any further questions or if they
wish to check on a return.

The East Carolinian
Our View
The downtown experience is about to change.
No, we're not getting a decent club down there. But to get
into the existing clubs, you're going to need a membership.
The ALE is tightening the screws on downtown Greenville, you
see, and the membership drive we'll be experiencing soon is
how the club-owners will be complying with ALE officials.
This membership thing is not new; technically, all the down-
town clubs have been members-only from day one. They have
to be; it's the law in North Carolina. It's just that the ALE
hasn't been enforcing the existing membership laws very care-
fully. For all the details on this, you can turn to the Lifestyle
section and read the feature story. Here, we're going to look at
how the membership law will affect you, the bar-hopping stu-
Well, first of all, your wallet's going to get fatter. Don't get
too excited; the clubs aren't going to start handing out cash or
lower their entrance fees. No, your wallet will be fatter because
of all the membership cards you'll have to carry around with
you to get into your favorite watering holes. No card, no en-
Unless, of course, you come with a member. Since there's
no limit on how many people a club member can bring in, en-
trance to the bars probably won't be as difficult as it sounds. In
fact, aside from the extra time it's going to take the guys at the
door to check cards and figure out who's coming in with whom,
the memberships themselves probably won't change many of
the downtown dynamics we're all used to.
So carrying the cards around might be a pain. So the lines
might be a little longer at the Elbo, as their ever-vigilant door-
men take a little extra time making sure that nobody who
shouldn't be there gets in. These slight inconveniences are very
slight indeed. If that's what it takes to keep downtown open, so
be it
So what if the bars in the Triangle area aren't held to the
letter of the membership law? Sure it's not fair, but think of all
the benefits we could reap from being singled out by govern-
I mean, it certainly makes ECU look good. Since we're try-
ing to shed that dreaded "party school" image, a crackdown
like this can only help the cause.
And the new system will probably make it easier to catch
underage drinkers. Each club will have to have a list of its mem-
bers' names, and possibly the names of their guests. This way,
if they've got your name and you try to drink illegally, they can
much more easily report you to the university. This, of course,
will make it easier for our school to punish those with the
audacity to flaunt the law in so abominable a fashion, again
making us look less like a party school and more like
Hmmm. What exactly does this make us look like? ,

The team is the Cleveland
Browns and they will soon be moving
to a new address in Baltimore. The
owner, Art Modell, claims that keep-
ing the team in Cleveland was caus-
ing him to lose money. It is difficult
to see how any team can lose money
when they receive equal sharing of TV
revenues, a big portion of the gate
receipts and merchandise sales. The
salaries are capped off by a new ceil-
ing as well.
The owner has done two things.
He has made the mistake of not wait-
ing long enough in Cleveland and he
has betrayed the teams fans.
In the world of American cities,
there is a shortage of high caliber
professional sports teams. This creates
an incredible demand by big cities for
these teams, and they are willing to
do almost anything to get them. The
case in Cleveland is that the city
w.nted to protect its taxpayers as
much as possible. It wanted to retain
rights to concessions and protect the
union labor that staffed the stadium.

The big issue of concession fees
is what is driving teams in similar situ-
ations to move as well.
Dallas gets 100 percent of the
concession and parking fees from its
home football games. This alone can
result in millions of dollars in addi-
tional revenues.
Baltimore gave Modell a similar
deal. He pays a small rent fee. In re-
turn, he gets all concession, parking
and on site advertising fees. He will
also get 50 percent of all proceeds
coming from college football games
and rock concerts.
The biggest mistake is betraying
the fans. By ignoring their love he has
shot himself in the wallet. The great-
est single source of income for pro-
fessional sports is in royalties. These
royalties are received whenever a team

Modell will undoubtedly be bet-
ter off with the stadium deal he has
now but had he waited he could have
gotten a much better deal in the long
run in Cleveland.
The fact of the matter is that had
he waited another season in Cleveland
the fans' pressure would have caused
the city government to give in. They
would want to keep their jobs in elec-
tion time and wouldn't want the eco-
nomic void created by the loss. They
would have built him a new stadium,
given him the concessions and pack-
ing revenues and allow him rights to
the in stadium advertising. He would
not get the concert and college rev-
enues but it is worth the trade off.
During the past 10 years, Cleve-
land has averaged over 70,000 fans
a game. This puts them in the
league's top five and ahead of a lot
of other teams with bigger stadiums.
Those 70,000 plus buy an awful lot
of T-shirts and ball caps. Now they
are angry and want little to do with
the team that betrayed them.
Baltimore is in the middle of .a
market flooded with pro teams like
Washington (the best team in the his-
tory of organized sports), Philadel-
phia and Pittsburgh. Therefore, there
will be few fans in that area who don't

Everyone is special
This year, the world Olympics are
being held in Atlanta, Ga. There will
be a big media circus trying to make
oodles of money off of these class ath-
letes performing for their country.
Wouldn't it be nice to see some of that
media attention slide away from the
norm and mundane and spotlight on
something that truly deserves to be
in the spotlight? Wouldn't it be even
better if this group of people were not
just the run-ofe-mill athlete either?
We are talking about some very spe-
cial people here, Special Olympians.
The Special Olympics is a na-
tional competition that has been go-
ing on for a long time. Yet, 1 do not
see that much publicity or advertise-
ment for it. Why is that? Why does
the media decide not to make a big
circus out of these athletes? They train
and work-out in preparation for the
Special Olympics just as other ath-
The answer to these questions is
simple, Ignorance. That's right, Igno-
rance! Ignorance has prevented
people throughout history from learn-
ing about how great other cultures
or civilizations are, or in this case how
great athletes truly are.
Since there is such a misconcep-
tion about who the participants are
that compete in Special Olympics, I
will tell you. The athlete's in Special
Olympics are kids, young adults, even
fully grown adults. The age range var-
ies dramatically.
OK, so there is not a real age
qualification. So perhaps it is the ath-
letic ability that makes the athletes
special? Well unless the athlete was
born with unnatural powers that make
them faster than a speeding bullet,
their athletic ability is about as good
as yours and mine.
What makes a Special Olympian
Brian Lewis Burns
Opinion Columnist
To try your
hardest and give
all that you
have, mates
a winner.
so special is their desire to overcome
a disability they have. These athletes
are not dumb or retarded. What a
Special Olympian is, is a person who
was born vith a disability trying to
overcome it. That's it! See, there is
nothing too difficult to understand
here. Special Olympians are just like
you and me. Everyone loves to have
fun, laugh, smile and win. That is what
the Special Olympics is 2ll about. In
the Special Olympics program, every-
one is a winner. Those are not just
words either. To try your hardest and
give all that you have, makes you a
winner. It does not matter if you cross
the finish line as the first or even the
second person. What matters is that
in the process of that race, you gave
it your all.
Isn't that a lesson that we were
taught a long time ago? It's real
simple. So I have a problem under-
standing where the misconception
that the Special Olympians are re-
tarded or dumb or freaks. I just don't
understand! I have worked with Spe-
cial Olympics for four years now and
I have the advantage of having worked
with some of the greatest track and
field athletes 1 have ever seen, not to
mention the undefeated soccer team
I helped coach.
When I was a coach, I saw these
kids giving me the best they could.
They might not have been able to
understand quantitative functions or
be able to operate a Netscape main-
frame, but you know what? They were
able to do so much more. They were
are able to be open and honest I did
not see any hate in them or anger, at
least for their disability. The only an-
ger and hate I saw was coming from
the ignorant people who neglected to
realize that here is a group of people
who were born not so perfect and have
learned to overcome these disabilities
and have good clean fun.
This kind of hatred does not stop
the kids. No, this is almost like fuel
for the fire. These kids are special.
They have to deal with today's soci-
ety which is filled with hatred and
love, good and evil, happiness and
sadness, while trying to fight a dis-
ability at the same time. That is more
than most people have to deal with
their entire life.
If you ask me, the retarded people
are those who cannot accept that ev-
eryone is different. I have brown hair
and brown eyes. My friends have
blond, black, and red hair. They are
obviously different from me, but I still
accept them the same. I don't under-
stand why people cannot accept Spe-
cial Olympians for who they are. No
one is perfect! Just because you have
a mole on your back doesn't make you
a bad person. So why does it, in the
minds of many people, make it so bad
to have lessof an IQ?
Perhaps it's just me, but I don't
see why people have to be so cruel.
We should accept someone for who
they are.
Letters to the Editor
No salt, sand should mean no school
To the Editor,
I would like to respond to the ar-
ticle in the Thurs. Feb. 8th edition of
TEC entitled "Students weather ice,
snow Chancellor Eakin stated "There
are approximately 5,000 students liv-
ing on campus and an estimated 2.000
students living within walking distance
from campus. The university did not
want to take away from these students'
education What about the other
10,445 students who had to travel the
treacherous roads of Greenville and
surrounding areas. Even for students
within walking distance, their educa-
tion may not have been taken away,
but what about their safety and secu-
On Tuesday morning at 8.00 a.m
when classes were back on schedule,
there was little evidence that any salt
or sand had been applied to the roads
or sidewalks on campus. This made it
extremely difficult and dangerous to get
to class. I feel it was ridiculous to ex-
pect anyone to get to campus in those
conditions. If the administration wanted
things back to normal, than sic ad-
equate preparations should have been
performed before scheduled classes.
The next time a decision has to be
made about whether to cancel classes
or not EVERYONE involved should be
considered and adequate preparations
should be made before classes are sched-
uled again.
Thank you.

Clubs drive for membership
Downtown may
become a harder
place to party
Brandon Waddell
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
Pick a card, any card.
ECU students are becoming accus-
tomed to hearing this phrase at the door
of their favorite downtown hot spot
When most students think of go-
ing downtown for an evening, several
things are taken into consideration. Af-
ter first deciding on the amount of
money that will be spent a few ques-
tions come to mind.
VtlrcHtN m
What kind of entertainment am I
looking for? I can go to a pool hall, dance
club, live music club or just sip on a few
cold ones with friends. Few have to con-
sider whether or not they're members
of the local nightclubs before going in
for a visit
The ALE (Alcohol Law Enforce-
ment) recently met with downtown club
owners and operators to ensure they
are abiding by the law with regard to
"members and guests only" policy.
North Carolina law states that for
a business to receive a permit from the
ABC Commission to sell mixed bever-
ages andor beer and wine, it must be
a restaurant or a private club. If the
business is a restaurant at least 40 per-
cent of its sales must derive from food.
But for clubs, it must be an estab-
lishment for "members and guests only"
to receive the same permit The ABC
license costs the same either way ($750),
and various other taxes and licenses are
also charged by the county on liquor
sales but the proceeds go to county
"Clubs pay more taxes on their li-
quor. The rate is about $2.80 more per
fifth of liquor) said Ken Gilliam, Per-

The only difference, aside from food
sales, is that private clubs must be for
members and guests of members. "It's

Broken Arrow
delivers the
action goods
Dale Williamson
Senior Writer
Joim Woo is one of the few action
directors who actually has a unique vi-
sion. His films are typically filled with
not only visuals that magically transform
a gunfight into an operatic moment but
also complex characters and stimulat-
ing plots.
Broken Arrow, Woo's latest film
and his second venture into the dark
territory of Hollywood, is not a typical
John Woo movie. The characters are
more iconic figures than actual human
beings, and the plot is predictable. Still,
Broken Arrow does what any good ac-
tion film should do: it delivers on the
action. With all its flaws and limitations.
Broken Arrow still stands out as one of
the better action fests in recent memory.
John Travolta and Christian Slater
star as Vic Deakins and Riley Hale, two
military pilots in charge of a couple of
nuclear warheads while flying a routine
drill. After quick character introduc-
tions, the rest of the plot is easy enough.

With a runaway bomb, a sarcas-
tic villain, a female character who
wants to prove her worth and a per-
fectly sculptured hero who must use
his brains as well as his brawn to
stop the villain, Broken Arrow
sounds a lot like Speed.
The similarities exist because of
Graham Yost, the screenwriter of
both films. What passed for wit in
Speed now seems hopelessly trite
and cloying. The first film succeeded
because of a tight script that left little
time to think about the absurdity of
the action.
Yost desperately tries to keep
the script of Broken Arrow tight, but
instead makes the story cluttered.
Three, count 'em, three, helicopter
crashes occur. By the final crash, the
audience can sense the telegraphed
ending of the copter and yawns as
yet another machine explodes into

Louisiana is the place to be for
Mardi Gras. But if you're like a lot
of students, you don't have the time
or money to go there. Never fear.
Mardi Gras is here! It's alive and
kickin' at Mendenhall tomorrow
This year promises to be bet-
ter than ever. The highlight of the
evening will be the coronation of a
king and queen, chosen by cake and
the baby Jesus. The cake will be
served to all comers, and the lucky
Mardi Gras partyer who gets a piece
with a little plastic baby Jesus in-
side has a chance of being king or
The new royalty will then par-
ticipate in the celebration parade,
complete with a Dixieland band.
Wanna-be despots shouldn't worry
- the plastic Jesus isn't hard enough
to damage delicate royal dentures.
In addition, favorite events from
previous years will be back, like video
kareoke (complete with costume and
background changes), Lady Luck Ca-
sino and Bourbon St. Bingo (com-
plete with prizes), a dance (complete
with deejay), free pool and bowling,
a mask contest and, finally, food,
food, food!
The Cajun style buffet is im-
mense and chock full o' goodies like
French Gumbo Soup, Chicken
Jumbalaya, spiced chicken wings,
Louisiana Mud Pie, Red Velvet cake
and double chocolate bread. Sound
good? There will also be flavored
coffees and donuts served through-
out the night.
The free temporary tattooing
will also be back, along with the new
Alpha Experience. This is a
capsulized virtual reality style ride
that seats about 12 people. A short
film is shown and the seats move
along with the feature, so it feels
like you're a part of the action.
Lynn Caverly, who oversees
the event, says, "I think
everybody's ready to get out after
that bad weather, and it's before

Derek T. Hall
Staff Writer
After years of touring, practicing
and cutting demos, Emmet Swimming
has a new deal and is taking the cluD
scene by storm. The four-member cult
originates from Fairfax. Virginia and
marks new territory wherever they may
The album Wake originated from
older material that the band had put
together some time before the deal.
Whatever the case may be. the album
is one to be reckoned with. "Jump in
the Water" is b perfect choice to open
this album. Characterized by a sonic
guitar and rhythm tracks laid down by
singersongwriter Todd Watts, the song
will rate high on any scale.
Also on the card are Erik Wenberg
on guitir, Rob Shaw on bass, and Tamer
Eid, a drummer who keeps time like no
other I've ever heard. Because of the
tight rhythm section laid down by Watts,
Shaw and Eid, Wenberg is able to flow
freely. It is his guitar that keeps every-
thing on track. Taking you from one
place to a higher plateau is one thing,
but to be able to bring you back to where
you came from and still hold your inter-
est is another. With this band, Wenberg
is able to do that The band compliments
each other very well.
"You're so Pretty is a song that I
believe everyone will get into, mostly
because of its lyrics. "The streets are so
cold tonight the cops are looking for
another fight Fairfax is a dirty town
where I've spent six years after moving
around sings Watts. He's talking about
both the hardships of being on the road
and of living in the same town forever.
It is this strong message that
earned Emmet Swimming three
"WAMMIE" awards this past November
in Washington, D.C. They were voted
Alternative Rock Group of the year, and
this album was named both Album of
the year and Alternative Rock Album
of the year. Watts himself was voted
Alternative Rock Vocalist of the year.

chances are they're right outside your
window. Always on tour, always Emmet

This Valentine's Day we were all
reminded by Hallmark Cards and
Whitman's candies that February is
the time for lovers. Everywhere you
looked, in almost every store, gaudy
pink and red lattice-coated hearts, as-
sorted fuzzy animals from Taiwan and
other oddities assailed the senses like
too much Glade air freshener.
No no, I'm not bitter.
Those of you in happy, healthy
relationships, enjoy the time you have
together! Frolic and dance in the
heath, sing songs with a lyre, play
footsies in clover. Or. if you're not into
clover, do what makes you happy.
Yes! Be happy! Happy while the
rest of us sit at home in our under-
wear, eating Ben & Jerry's Chunky
Monkey out of the container with our
fingers, and watch MTV's Gen-X dat-
ing game. "Singled Out"
Surely you've seen "Singled Out"
Hosted by Chris Hardwick and former
Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy.
this show plays to the wacky hopes
and dreams of single folks attempt-
ing to find that special someone in
these relationship-troubled times.
"The Dating Game" in the '70s.
"Love Connection" in the '80s. and
now this. Same stuff, different decade.
Okay, so maybe "Singled Out"
has a unique way of getting our two
lovebirds together? They sure do, and
it's called a cattlecall. Instead of "Dat-
ing Game which let swingers choose
from three hopefuls, "Singled" begins
with 50! Contestants have to narrow
down the dating hopefuls by lumping
them into catagories, then doing away
with the ones they don't like You
know, kind of like the Nazis did.
Round one is
like this: the contes-
tant (in this example,
a woman) checks out
a big tote board with
six main catagories
listed. The episode I
caught had these for
the guys: Age, Facial
Hair, Butt, Chest,
Hair Length, Kissing
Style. Once a
catagory is picked (say "Hair Length"),
you get to see the sub-catagories and
choose from there.
"Hair" had these subs: Lex
Luthor, Superman or Lois Lane. As
you can see from this example, there
is an attempt made to make these
catagories kind of hip and culturally-
referenced. The contestant cuts the
pack from there (whether she under-
stands the reference or not).
Round two begins with the em-
barrassmentdemeaning stage. Here,
the contestants are forced to perform
silly, debasing tasks to prove them-
selves somehow worthy of this
person's love. Physical and verbal
abuse from the show's hosts, silly cos-
tumes and wigs, sexist language, and
other such nasties pop up during this
proving phase of the competition.
Back where I come from, we called
this "dating
The selection has been weeded
down to three, and it is almost over.
The final round is like a speed round.
There are squares marked on the floor,
and the "lucky" three answer ques-
tions, trying to match their answers
with the contestant. If they do, they
move forward. First one to the center
In many
ways, this
round is more
to all con-
cerned, both
the show's cre-
ators as well
as the players.
The questions
are often rude
and insensitive (thought up by the
show's writers), and the answers the
players give show the whole world
how stupid they are. The last episode
I watched offered the question "Spit
or Swallow" to the female contestants.
I can only assume they were talking
about gum.
Now, maybe I've been a little hard
on this show, comparing them to Ary-
ans and all. Have I been unfair? After
all, it's just a bunch of wild kids try-
ing to meet go out and see each other
naked. Maybe I should reconsider
Hell, no! This show takes all the
awful elements of dating and concen-
trates them into a 20-minute broad-

Yost used an elevator, a bus and
a train to tell the story of Speed. In
Broken Arrow he uses a plane, trucks,
a jeep, three helicopters, an elevator,
a boat and a train. Why Yost included
so many modes of transportation can
only be explained by his inability to
fill the screen with anything more
substantial. Broken Arrow plays more
like a documentary on transportation
than a finely choreographed film. The
excesses eventually jade the viewer.
John Woo. the Hong Kong direc-
tor who only recently came to
America, tries his best to breathe some
life into Broken Arrow, but he gets
handcuffed by the dull script. Woo
works best when the script is only an
outline of a story. In The Killer (his
best-known Hong Kong film) and
Hard Target (his first American film),
the story was a paradigm of cinematic
The finale of Hard Target takes
up nearly a third of the film, leaving
the viewer plenty of time to enjoy
watching Woo orchestrate his violent
ballet without complicating the action
with intricate plots. Woo is a master
of excess.but the excess should come
from Woo himself, not the screen-
Broken Arrow does include some
interesting sequences, like an open-
ing credit that cuts between an over-
head shot of a boxing ring and close-
ups of a red boxing glove being
smashed into someone's face. The in-
teresting shots are interspersed with
mundane action cliches - a bomb
about to explode, someone hanging
from a moving train, and a fleet of
crashing vehicles. Woo's previous
works seemed fresh and daring be-
cause he avoided many of the usual
cliffhanger cliches.
The term "broken arrow" refers
to a missing nuclear warhead. The title
is the only inventive aspect of the film.
Vic Deakins (John Travolta), "Deak"
to his friends, organizes the abduc-
tion of two nuclear bombs. How he
makes the underworld connections to
do this is unanswered, as is the way
Deak organizes the theft without the
military becoming suspicious.
Riley Hale (Christian Slater)
spars with Deak during off-hours and
shares the cockpit of a stealth bomber
with him during work time. Pitted
against each other in the Utah desert
Hale tries to find a way to stop Deak.
Hale meets Terry Carmichael
(Samantha Mathis), a park ranger,
who then agrees to help Hale foil
Deak's plans.
The stars, like the audience, seem
a bit jaded by the script. They all smile
appropriately, flex their muscles when
required and utter swaggering, sarcas-
tic insults on cue, but they seem bored
by the ordeal. Travolta borrows his
cool attitude from Chili Palmer, his
character in Get Shorty, and inserts
it into an evil brain. Though Travolta
is fun to watch as a villain, Chili
Palmer was a lot more interesting.
Christian Slater seems hopelessly
overmatched by Travolta and cannot
hold together the role of hero.
Samantha Mathis is wasted even
though her character gets to match
wits and brawn with Slater's.
The rest of the cast is useless.
Delroy Lindo, a fine actor, and
Howie Long, the former Los Angeles
Raider, do little except read their lines.
Frank Whaley and Kurtwood Smith
play Washington planners and have
the most useless roles in the script
The entire Washington subplot should
have been deleted.
John Woo will hopefully direct
many other great films. Broken Ar-
row will just not be considered one of
thern. Give me another Hard Target
any day.

fight in this film. Mathis. who plays a
park ranger caught up in this mess, is
every bit as impressive. Unlike many
typical action film heroines, Mathis is a
character who will take initiative on her
own. At least she's not clinging onto
the hero's arm. waiting for him to act
The big cheese in the film, though,
is John Travolta, who hams up his per-
formance and walks with the cockiness
of a $20 million man. Travolta is pure
joy to watch. He gathers up all his
Travolta-esqe traits and blends them
with a character who is slightly loose in
the head. Don't expect a total over-the-
top performance here. Travolta adds
nice subtleties to his villain and creates
someone who is a bit too egotistical for
his own good.
What will bring audiences to the
theaters, though, are the action se-
quences. While many of the action
scenes may be too derivative of other
films (one truck chase screams Raiders
of the Lost Ark, for example), many-
other scenes exhibit the style typical of
Woo. Hundreds of movies depict the
hero shooting down a helicopter, but
not many show characters dodging the
spinning helicopter blades as the vehicle
crashes. Moments such as this rejuve-
nate a genre that has almost totally be-
come redundant.
In fact. Woo is doing for the ac-
tion genre what Sergio Leones did for
the western. He is taking basic con-
cepts that we've seen before and add-
ing atmospheric elements to them.
Hans Zimmer's off-beat musical score
bleeds into Woo's visual wasteland and
creates a movie with a unique person-
ality. When Woo captures Travolta ris-
ing from the desert horizon in slow-
motion, we giggle at the absurdity of
the moment. But that's what the film
is all about Travolta, like the film it-
self, is larger than life, so Woo has as
much fun as he can.
Broken Ai row is exactly what it
sets out to be: a fun. intense, and ac-
tion-filled ride. Once the plot is set in
motion, the action only slows down to
fill in the expository gaps. The film-
makers don't waste time trying to build
up characters or add complexities to
the plot. Why should they? Some films
are made for engaging the mind and
some are made simply for the pure sen-
sation they create
If you want a more complex ac-
tion film. Woo's The Killer and Hard
Boiled are availahle at most video
stores. If you just want to eat your pop-
corn as you throw reality out the win-
dow for a couple of hours. Broken

times the business owners need to be
reminded of this law
The law means several things to
business owners. First, there must be
at least a three day waiting period to
become a new member. Each club must
keep an alphabetized membership ros-
ter at the door and give proof of mem-
bership to each member. But North
Carolina law does not specify any re-
quirements for membership to private
clubs or how many guests each mem-
ber can sponsor into the club.
The ALE falls under the depart-
ment of crime control and enforces all
regulations set forth by the ABC Com-
mission. The agents are usually found
doing field investigation and have ar-
rest power.
What all these laws and regulations

mean to students is fairly simple. To
patronize a club, one must be a mem-
ber or guest to be admitted to a private
club. The rationale behind membership
is that it makes someone responsible
for everyone inside of the clubs.
Critics of this tightening on mem-
bership restrictions claim that the
Greenville area is being unfairly targeted
by the ALE.
"Go to virtually any club in Raleigh,
Charlotte or Greensboro and they won't
ask for a membership card, just a cover

Dill Dillard
Staff Writer
With the departure of Offensive
Coordinator Todd Berry bound for
Illinois State to become a head coach,
the Pirate coaching staff had to fill a
void left by Berry's absence. The Pi-
rates looked to a fellow North Caro-
lina program and snagged former
Wake Forest assistant Jerry McManus
to be the new running back coach.
It was receiver coach Doug Mar-
tin who got the promotion to Offen-
sive Coordinator, but the with a few
inner staff changes, Steve Logan's pro-
gram filled the void very readily with
McManus, who comes in as a well ex-
perienced football coach.

addition. "He brings with him a tre-
mendous amount of coaching experi-
ence. He has recruited the eastern
part of North Carolina the past sev-
eral years and this will be a tremen-
dous asset to our program
McManus will not only be the
new running back coach, but he will
also be used for recruiting in the east-
ern portion of North Carolina which
is always a priority in Logan's pro-
gram. With such mainstays as Marcus
Crandell, Kevin Wiggins and Morris
Foreman to name a select few com-
ing from the eastern part of the state,
it's obviou&that McManus's ability to
recruit in the region will do nothing
but enhance the Bucs ability to snag
local talent
With the departure of McManus
from Coach Jim Caldwell's program,
Wake not only lost a quality coach,
but the coach with the longest ten-
ure at Wake Forest, serving seven
years with the ACC school.
McManus, who played out his
college career at Wake Forest as a
quarterback in 1975-76, started his
coaching career as a graduate assis-
tant under the "Trench fighter" Bill
Dooley while at Virginia Tech. He also
served as a defensive back coach at
Division 1 schools like Pittsburgh and
Tulane, before returning to his alma
mater in 1987. At Wake, McManus
reunited with Dooley and served as
an offensive assistant and coached
such Demon Deacon passing leaders
as Mike Elkins and was on the staff
of the 1992 Independence Bowl
Championship team. This was the
Deacs' first bowl appearance since the
1979 Tangerine Bowl.
Since joining Caldwell's staff in
'93, McManus was serving as a line-
backer coach as well as being
Caldwell's recruiting coordinator.
Despite being well-respected and
well-loved in Deacon country,
McManus's first love was offense, and
taking the spot on the ECU staff
would put him right back in the thick
of the offensive game.
"The biggest thing with this de-
cision is the opportunity to get back
into the offensive side of the ball
McManus said. "Coach Logan's pro-
gram is very attractive and he pre-
sented me with the opportunity to
work with the running backs. It was
something I couldn't pass up

Earnhardt ready for Daytona
.Earnhardt's quest to finally win the
' Daytona 500 after 18 unsuccessful tries
'� is being guided by a new team nanager
and crew chief. Team owner Richard
Childress doesn't expect the key
; changes to slow Earnhardt down a bit
"Every year we come down here
thinking this is the year we're going to
win the Daytona 500 said Childress,
; who has fielded the last 12 Daytona 500
entries for Earnhardt "I don't have a
. different feeling than I've ever had com-
" ing into this race.
"Some day we'll win it but it's just
been one of those deals where some-
thing always seems to keep us from it"
he addedAH you can do is prepare
yourself, do the best you can and let
�ti� chips fall where they may. Maybe
they'll fall in our direction this year.
We're as prepared as we've ever been
If they do, a lot of the credit will go
to crew chief David Smith and team
manager-engineer Bobby Hutchens.
Smith takes over his new duties in
his 14th season with Childress, while
Hutchens moves up to his new job as
an eight-year team member.
"So far, we're real pleased with
everything Childress said. "It's work-
ing real good, like we had anticipated.
Team spirit and morale is the best it's
ever been.
"David and Bobby have been in-
volved wjth this team for many years.
It's not like they're coming into some-
thing new. Now the spotlight is on
them. They're not the people behind the
scenes any more
The changes were necessitated
when Andy Petree, who had been
Earnhardt's crew chief for three seasons
and helped him to two of his seven
Winston Cup titles and a runner-up fin-
ish last season, was offered the oppor-
tunity to become part-owner of the team
run by Leo Jackson.
"I think the thing that impressed
me the most when Bobby and David
and I sat down and talked about the
situation was they said I should 'look
out there and see if you can find any-
one who will bring more to the table if
we stay where we are They were will-
ing to stay in the same positions if we
could find somebody else who would
complement the team. These guys re-

Athletes with AIDS. It is
something that is becoming all
too familiar.
The recent news liiat heavy-
weight boxer Tommy Morrison
tested HIV positive was a shock
to everyone. Morrison admits he
had a promiscuous past, and
now he is paying for it in the
most unfortunate way.
However, he will not be the
only one suffering. Aside from
family, Morrisons' former oppo-
nents must be questioning the
last time they stepped into the
ring with him. As everyone
knows, boxing is a sport in
which blood is usually a norm.
If I was one of his opponents, I
would be scared to death.
Morrison joins other ath-
letes who have contracted the
HIV virus. Former tennis star,
the late Arthur Ashe, contacted
HIV from a blood transfusion
and current Laker's come back
kid, Magic Johnson, as we all
know, is a carrier.
Ashe had no control over
the way he contracted the virus,
but Johnson too admits that in
his earlier days he had unpro-
tected sex.
I think every athlete start-
ing from high school should be
given a mandatory AIDS test
Researchers say the only way
the virus can be transmitted is
though unprotected sex and
blood transfusions. Although
athletes don't have unprotected
sex with each other during
sporting events, they still are
risking the danger of infecting
their teammates if they carry
the virus.
If someone has an open
wound and body fluid, like
blood, gets into the wound that
is a way it can be transmitted.
There were many times in high
school when I was changing and
showering after one of my
games, and discovered I had an
open cut suffered in the game
that I didn't even know about. I
would look down and see my
dried blood.
The ironic part is that I
didn't even know I had been cut
until afterwards. What if that
had been someone else's blood?
Nowadays when athletes dis-
cover blood on themselves they
might wonder the same thing.
I know the athletic world
is taking more precautions to
prevent anything catastrophic
from happening to any of their
athletes. For example, in college
ball if you have a cut that draws

gloves for safety when they treat

With the return of Magic, the
NBA says it has educated the league
about the AIDS virus. Four years ago
when Magic attempted his first come-
back, Karl Malone openly expressed
his displeasure playing with someone
who was infected. When Magic came
back this time, Malone wasn't as dis-
approving about Magic's return.
However, I think athletes should
have worries about playing with a
teammate that has been infected. To
me, it's too dangerous to let it go
untalked about.
The scariest part about these
athletes with HIV is the fact that
many probably don't even know they
carry the virus. Even the healthiest
looking person, who takes great care
of themselves can be a carrier. Most
athletes are in tip-top shape and they
wouldn't even give it a second
thought that they might be a carrier.
That is why when these famous ath-
letes announce they are HIV positive,
it is a shock.
I hate to say this, but I think one
day someone will be infected with the
virus from playing and then the
sporting world as we know it will be
in such turmoil, nobody will know
what to think anymore.
Testing for the virus early on
could only help prevent any mishaps
like the one mentioned above. Until
there is a cure everyone, including
athletes, should be more aware of
who they come in contact with and
under what circumstances.
1 just hope it doesn't ever come
to the point where more and more
athletes make that fatal announce-
ment. The only way I want to see ath-
letes leave the game is through re-
tirement after many long years of
playing. Not through death.
