our first major campaign, even many of our friends
thought that $50 million was just too aggressive. Once

The campaign began in 1990 to raise funds to en-
hance the school's medical efforts, athletics and academ-
ics. The plan met its goal in Dec. 1994 and exceeded it by
30 percent one year later at the close of the campaign.

percent; university families donated $4.6 million, or 7 per-

Two panics slaughtered at N.C. State
Two ponies at N. C. State's College of Veterinary Medicine were bru-
tally gunned down early one morning in late April.
One of the ponies was dead when an employee discovered it around 6
a.m. tying on the ground. The animal had been shot five times.
The other pony was found alive but suffered from several bullet wounds.
After teing placed in intensive care, the pony was euthanized.
A third pony was wounded by a bullet to the neck. Fortunately, the
bullet lodged in fatty tissue and did not kill the pony.
Officials deny any link between the pony shootings and the February
killing of UNC- Chapel Hill sports mascot Rameses the Ram.
Kilter at the University off South Florida gets life
A man who killed his ex-girlfriend outside of Alpha Hall two years ago
at the University of South Florida was sentenced to life in prison.
Peter Harold Howarth must serve at least 25 years in the Florida State
Prison before being eligible for parole in the murder of 19-year old Heather
Marie Haupin Feb. 18, 1994.
Howarth shot Haupin twice in the head at point-blank range with a
.32-caliber semiautomatic handgun after leaving a White Zombie concert at
the Sun Dome. Haupin died instantly.
15 minutes later, as university police approached him, Howarth shot
himself in the neck.
Haupin had been within days of filing a restraining order against
Howarth, the father of her four-year-old son Leif.
Six hours before her death, police say Howarth left a cryptic message
on Haupin's answering machine.
"We're going to be together forever he said. "I promise you. It's been

Duke students demand apology from campus police
Eight Duke University students met with University Police Chief Don
Gold to demand an official apology for the lack of protection at a Great Hall
party sponsored by Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. held in late March.
A Raleigh man was severely beaten, a female Duke student was almost
assaulted and a male Duke student was surrounded by a mob outside of the
Student Union on the night of the party, according to witnesses and police
The Duke students said that University Police refused to help the woman
when she asked for assistance.
THe students asked for an investigation into the events, as well as
identification and suspension of the officers involved.
Gold said that altercations occurred when a large group was not admit-
ted to the party because it sold out Gold said he initiated an internal affairs
investigation after speaking to the students.

PHn t&d on
Editor's Note: Outside of the doors of The East Carolinian
(TEC), the "masthead" is the list of staff members on the top
right side of this page. For lack of a better word, we use the
terms "Our View"and masthead" interchangably.
Have you wondered how we get the ideas that are expressed
in "Our View?" Well, wonder no longer, we are here to explain.
Each week all the editors and assistant editors in our re-
spected sections sit down and have our editorial board meet-
ing. Sometimes the meetings take hours, even days. OK, actu-
ally it only takes about 10 minutes to come up with topics, but
sometimes it seems like hours. We brainstorm topics that are
relative to the news of the week. It may be campus news, com-
munity news, world news and sometimes even sports gets thrown
We try to write on subjects that not only interest us, but
you too. We don't want to write on dead-beat subjects. Some-
thing no one will want to read is useless and we know you
deserve the highest quality we at TEC can offer.
Everybody votes on two topics they like and the top two
vote getters on the list are the mastheads for the upcoming
weeks. Everyone is assigned to write the "Our View" each week,
so everybody gets a turn to write on subjects, that sometimes,
they really don't have a strong opinion about.
Thai a where the rest of staff comes into play. Because not
everybody thinks alike, after we choose our two topics, every-
one in the meeting throws out ideas on why they like the topic,
hate it agree with it or disagree. The writer for that masthead
jots down the ideas and incorporates those views into the col-
This makes it easier for whoever is summoned to write the
masthead. They can put their own input into the article as well
as six other people's ideas.
We try to express views that will generate the reader's in-
terests. We often get feedback on the mastheads and that is
what we are trying to do: codger up some interest and get people
thinking about certain topics.
Some may think it is a tedious process and sometimes it is.
But the whole reason for titling the section "Our View" is to let
the readers know what we are thinking. What you read isn't
just the opinion of one writer, it is a combination of all of us at
So the next time your friend turns to you and says that
they can't believe that whoever wrote the "Our View" believes
what they do, you can set them straight and let them know that
the opinion is not just of one person, but of several.
We ail collaborate to make "Our View" as unique as our-
selves and we put them into one big melting pot to create many
diverse opinions. And when the boiling pot of opinions are fin-
ished brewing, that's when you have what we call "Our View
Letters to the Editor
N.C. Race: No room for moderates
- To the Editor:
The two party system has de-
� prived North Carolina voters of any
jreal choices in the 1996 U.S. Sen-
ate face. Both parties have nomi-
fi�Jd candidates that represent the
extremes of their respective parties.
Jesse Helms, a card-carrying mem-
ber and leader of the far right move-
ment. Senator Helms has a long
record of regressive voting on edu-
cation, the environment and a long
string of other issues. The fact he
is a professional politician with 24
years under his belt in Washington
only worsens his standing.
The democrats nominated a
candidate that also represents the
extremes of their party. Harvey
Cantt opposes capital punishment,
favors racial quotas and has already
been rejected once by North Caro-
lina voters. Cantt cemented his left-
wing credentials by calling his op-
ponent a racist to mobilize his base
in the democratic primary.
It is unfortunate two career
politicians that are willing to use
race to their advantage are the only
options in this Senate race. Moder-
ate voters don't have any choices
in this election. It's no wonder
people are sickened by the state of
our political system.

I think that I have gone off of the
deep end. I have reached the point
of no return in my writing career.

have an actual printed record of
having used a quote from a Guns

Yes, there is a point.
I think that I am going mad be-
cause I chose to be in school for an
optional three months. This may
sound scary but you could be in the
same danger that I am in. You could
have this problem too, if you are
here of your own accord. Here's a

I chose to not be able to find
my way around a campus that I have
spent three years on. Being in sum-
mer school means a lot of things,
but this summer it means that on
anv given morning your favorite
area of campus could be fenced off
and closed from entry. This then
allows me to get to school everyday
with the anticipation of a lab rat
waiting to get his chance at the
maze. If you have class in the Gen-
eral Classroom building and you

fore you go to the food mobile or

You can spend your tree time, as-

Plot and character
take back seat in
Hollywood is always looking for
the next big marketable thing. A few
years ago, it was dinosaurs. Last year,
a man dressed as a bat made a come-
back. This year, nature rules at the
box office. As strange as it may seem,
tornadoes are the "in" thing at the,
moment, and Warner Brothers' new
film Twister taps into this current

which are the
selling point of this film, don't disap-
point. These twisters look amazingly
realistic as they destroy barns, hurl
live cows around, and throw transfer
trucks as if they were weightless.
While these critics praise the spe-
cial effects in Twister, they also are
quick to point out that the story is
weak, as are the characters. However,
these same critics forgive the filmmak-
ers because what really matters are
the tornadoes. Let me stray fipm the
pack for a minute. I admit that the
tornadoes are the focus of Twister, as
were the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park,
but I still don't understand why we
have to sacrifice an engaging story
and characters that are somewhat
complex in exchange for great effects.
If you're going to bother with a story
at all, then why not put a little effort
into it instead of following the typical
Without going into any detail, the
basic premise of the story involves a
separated couple, Bill and Jo Harding
(played by Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt
respectively), who find themselves
thrown back together when a record
outbreak of tornadoes occurs in Okla-
homa. As this couple, along with their
team of scientist companions, chase
one tornado after another with a sci-
entific invention they created to ana-
lyze and study torna-
does, we do witness
attempts at character
and story develop-
ment, but these at-
tempts prove to be
frail and even cliched.
Michael Crichton and
Anne-Marie Martin do
their best to provide
characters with inter-
nal motivations, haunted obsessions
and human qualities, but the end re-
sult is more of a predictable paint-by-
numbers script than a surprisingly com-
pelling story. Not only that, Crichton
and Martin even resort to throwing in
such tired concepts as a sleazy corpo-
rate antagonist who, of course, is not
as skilled at chasing tornadoes as our
The only really interesting element
in the story's concept is how the tor-
nadoes themselves are given a lifelike
quality. The script plays around with
the notion that tornadoes are their own
entities, even to the point that these
tornadoes growl like some unnatural
beast But even this idea is not origi-
nal. Ron Howard did the same thing
with fire when he made Backdraft.
Still, Twister does deliver on the
action, and that's what really matters
here. Director Jan De Bont is perfect
for the job, especially since he already
proved he could make the mundane
fun with his previous hit, Speed. De
Bont's camera constantly moves in an
action sequence, creating a dizzying
sensation without being distracting.
Visually, De Bont does capture some
memorable moments. A night sequence
in which a huge tornado attacks a
drive-in theater is particularly fright-
De Bont is also a master at plac-
ing his heroes in dangerous situations.
I have to admire any film that has our
protagonists run into a barn for shel-
ter from a tornado only to discover that
the barn is filled with blades, pitch-
forks, and shovels. Moments like this
make this ride an enjoyable one.
Twister is one of those films that
has many inexcusable faults, but it is
also a film I can't totally dislike because
the elements that work really work
jwelLWhen the action startstfce film's
flaws fade. However, whenever the film
takes a pit stop, the flaws are as un-
mistakable as any tornado.
My advice to everyone, though, is
to see Twister on the big screen, in a
theater with a digital sound system if
possible. I don't see this flick as trans-
lating to video effectively at all.
On a scale of one to 10, Twister
rates a six (an eight if you see it in a
really nice theater).

From the depths of Atlanta
they came, with mirror images of
themselves to count on and an ar-
ray of new tunes. Evan and Jaron
are working it out! Working out the
club scene, that is. In only two
years, these identical twin brothers
have released Live at KaLo's Cof-
fee House, a self-published album,
and Not from Concentrate, their
debut studio CD.
And this seven-song EP is defi-
nitely an impressive debut. It opens
up with a tune called "Nature Co
a song that lists the necessary in-
gredients for human survival, one
of them being music, of course.
The most impressive song on
the disc is called "How Many

venture off into a world of his own
by letting loose on his Gibson, an
electric, custom-made guitar that is
perhaps one of a few in existence.
An electric sound is what the
band needs to put them over the
top. Not from Concentrate is defi-
nitely up beat. It shows you a to-
tally different side to these broth-
ers. Before, they were playing
acoustics in a coffee shop and re-
lied on nothing but themselves.
After selling over 8,000 copies of

that this twin duo is a repeat of the
Nelson boys or any other demented
twins that smiled for the cameras.

The music on this disc is very
pop. Although the sound works, it
has been done before. Evan and

originality, but their poppy rhythms

that's what attracts people to this
band: their simplistic style makes
you wonder what you're listening
to, while you're enjoying it.
I've seen these guys play for a
packed crowd and an empty one.
Their best quality as a band is their
ability to hold the intensity of a
large packed room and also to ad-
just and play like they never have
before to an empty hall.

time, filled in so many gaps in the

who Miss Lizzie was. I had gath-

she became part of the family.

important piece into place right
at the center of the enigmatic
puzzle that was my great-grand-

a crusty, disagreeable old farmer
who ate mayonnaise sandwiches

an ounce of praise for anybody.
I've never been able to figure out
what made him that way, nor why
everybody loved him so much.

Peppers cure pain
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - When
burning pain lingers months after
surgery, doctors say there is a red-hot
cure: chili peppers.
In a study, an ointment made with
capsaicin (cap-SAY-uh-sin). the stuff
that makes chili peppers hot, brought
relief to patients with tender surgical
scars, apparently b short-circuiting
Patients undergoing major can-
cer surgery, such as mastectomies or
lung operations, are sometimes beset
by sharp, burning pain in their surgi-
cal scars that lasts for months, even
years. Sometimes the misery is so bad
that sufferers cannot even stand the
weight of clothing on their scar, even
though it is fully healed.
The condition, seen in about five
percent or fewer of all cases, results
from damage to the nerves during
surgery. Ordinary painkillers don't
work, and the standard treatment is
However, these powerful drugs
have side effects. So in search of a
better alternative, doctors tested a
cream made with capsaicin on 99 pa-
tients who typically had suffered pain-
ful surgical scars for at least six
Patients preferred capsaicin over
a dummy cream by 3-to-l.
"The therapy clearly worked
said Dr. Charles L. Loprinzi, head of
medical oncology at the Mayo Clinic.
He released his data Monday at the
annual meeting of the American So-
ciety for Clinical Oncology.
The only side effects were red-
ness, burning and an occasional
cough when the patient caught a whiff
of the ointment.
Capsaicin is believed to work by
blocking substance P, a natural chemi-
cal that carries pain impulses between
nerve cells. That same blocking effect
may explain why people who eat hot
peppers all the time develop a toler-
ance to the burn.
Dr. Alan Lyss of Missouri Baptist
Medical Center in St. Louis called it
"a creative, new and very inexpensive
way to take care of some kinds of can-
Capsaicin is sold in drug stores
without a prescription, and a tube that
lasts a month costs about $16.

study, the pa-
tients were randomly assigned to cap-
saicin cream or the look-alike placebo
four times a day for eight-week inter-
vals. Until the study was over, no one
knew which was which.
Patients kept score of their pain.
It went down 53 percent while using
capsaicin but only 17 percent while
on the placebo. About 10 percent said
their pain disappeared completely.
The doctors followed the patients
for two months after they stopped
using capsaicin and found that the
pain did not come back. A longer fol-
low-up will be necessary to see if the
treatment relieves the pain perma-
Three strengths of capsaicin
cream are commonly available in phar-
macies. In the study, doctors used the
middle strength. 0.075 percent.
Plans are under way to test a hot

1 was my great-grandmother, 1 would
die with an awful lot of important stuff
undone and my ghost would no doubt
be stuck haunting the sterile halls of
the General Classroom Building to the
end of time.
Now, I doubt I'll be dying any-
time soon, barring unforeseen acci-
dent. Medical science is much more
advanced now than it was in my great-
grandmother's day, and my life hasn't
been nearly as hard as hers must have
been. But on that day in the nursing
home I still found mortality staring
me in the face from the beginning of
the century, and boy was it ever ugly.
I'm not sure what point I want to
make here, what lesson I learned from
this story haphazardly picked from my
grandmother's brain. I guess it's just
the lesson that everyone learns, even-
tually, that death can strike at any
moment and we'd damn well better
make the most of our time. So what if
we'll probably live to a ripe old age?
We're still racing the clock.
This kind of realization adds a bit
more urgency to the unending crush
of day-to-day life, right down to the
most menial tasks. Let me tell you, a
little death urgency makes the soul-
crushing tedium of cleaning a sink full
of dirty dishes go by a whole lot faster.

Tfte East Carolinian
Winning tradition halted
sees victory streak
end at 25 years
For 25 years, the baseball team
at ECU has had winning seasons. Not
since 1971 have they had a losing one.
Unfortunately, they broke that streak
After beating George Mason in
the first round of the CAA Champi-
onships in Kinston last week, ECU
dropped second and third round
games to Old Dominion and VCU, to
end their season 22-24.
The Pirates started the beginning
of the '96 year with a bang. They beat
top-rated Kentucky and Tennessee.
They then went on to win their next
15 of 23 games scheduled. However,
three of those games were postponed
due to rain. So by the end of March,
the Pirates had only dropped five
games. That's pretty impressive.
However, their luck changed dur-
ing the next two months. During
April, five games were won and 11
lost At that point they could only
hope that April wouid lead way into a
more successful May.
But it didn't. ECU finished May
with a 1-7 record before heading into
the tournament as the number five
seed. The tournament is set up in a
double elimination format. A team
isn't completely out until they drop
Last year, ECU dropped their first
two games in the tournament, first to
Richmond and then to William &
Mary. But this year, a first round win
over George Mason got ECU fans ex-
cited and the players pumped up. ECU
knew they had at least two more
games to play, hopefully more.
A 7-9 loss to Old Dominion and a
0-10 loss to VCU sent the Pirates away
with no championship. The last time
ECU won the title was 1993.
Many positive things came out of
this season. Six players earned 1996
All-CAA honors at the annual banquet
held before the tournament. Senior
second baseman Lamont Edwards and
sophomore pitcher Patrick Dunham
were named to the first team All-CAA.
Senior pitchers Bryan Smith and Jeff
Hewitt, sophomore first baseman
Randy Rigsby and freshman third
baseman Antaine Jones were honored
as second team All-CAA selections.
ECU had the most players hon-
ored by the CAA with the above six
mentioned, with ODU and VCU receiv-
ing five selections each.
I hate to see baseball come to an
end. Some of the most spectacular
plays I have ever seen were made at
Harrington Field this season. The
double plays, stoien bases, strikeouts,
diving catches and homeruns. ECU
has one of the most talented ball clubs
in the country. Of course that is bi-
ased but I am a die hard ECU fan. I
believe any person who saw a game
would say the same thing.
The Pirates will come out next
season ready to avenge this year's los-
ing record. It's plain and simple, Pi-
rate opponent's better watch out

Intramural programs offer relief
It has already been a week of
classes and stress levels are soaring.
Nine more weeks of this kind of stress
will take its toll on your body.
While you are concerning your-
self with school, there is one service
on campus that is concerned with
making sure that your summer is not
just spent behind a textbook.
Recreational Services, located in
Christenbury Gym, has done all the
planning to put the fun back into your
summer. The department is devoted
to students and faculty by providing
a broad range of activities.
The highlight of the summer of-
fering by rec services is the adventure
program.The adventure program gives
students, staff and the general public
the opportunity to get away and have
some fun. The department offers a
variety of activities that fit everyone's
interests. Weekend getaways being
planned ior the summer include back-
packing, beach horseback riding, hang
gliding, climbing and canoeing.
According to a brochure pub-
lished by rec services there will be
trips to the Shenandoah National
Park, Cedar Island, Jockey's Ridge
State Park and a Father's Day canoe-
ing weekend in Northwestern North
Carolina. These brochures can be
picked up at Christenbury.

which is open for students. Every
Wednesday is free climbing day for
students. It has already opened and
will close on July 24.
The tower is open on Tuesdays
and Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
If theses services are not what
you have in mind, the Recreational
Outdoor Center (ROC) can help you
plan your own trip.
The outdoor center, open Mon-
day through Friday, also has informa-

might want to visit The ROC also car-

in CAA tourney
What started out as a surprising
season for Gary Overton's young Pi-
rates ended sooner than the Bucs had
planned as the VCU Rams handed the
ECU baseball team their dismissal
from the CAA tournament last week
After a better start than expected,
beating 15 out of their first 20 oppo-
nents of the season, Overton's troops
hit a seven game skid that went into
the CAA tournament This skid was
topped off in Richmond when the Spi-
ders surprised the Pirates by sweep-
ing the purple and gold in the last
regular season CAA series. This
knocked the Pirates from second seed
to fifth seed all in seven games.
With all of this in mind most
young squads like Overton's would
hang their heads when they heard
that their first round opponent would
be George Mason, a team that was
predicted by some to win the CAA.
Oh, but the contrary. Sophomore All-
Conference selection Patrick Dunham
took the mound and blanked the Pa-
triots 1-0 to advance the Bucs to the
winner's bracket This set the match
up between the Pirates and the even-
tual CAA champion Monarchs of Old
Dominion who started that seven
game skid during the regular season.
"I was proud of our club perfor-
mance against Mason Overton said.
"Patrick Dunham pitched an out-
As the 1-0 score indicates, defense

teams' aces were on the mound

"Our defense played an outstand-
ing ball game, but the lack of offense
did concern us going into the second
game with number one seed ODU
The Pirates looked for offense
and got it as the Bucs went back and
forth the whole way, trading the lead
with the Monarchs. The Pirates not
only put up the multiple hits against
one of the tougher pitching staffs in

across seven runs. Despite the im-
proved offensive production and a late
game rally, it was not enough for the
good guys as they dropped into the
loser's bracket 9-7 against the even-
"We played tough against ODU
and we fought hard, but things just
didn't fall our way Co-captain
Lamont Edwards said.
The phrase "out of the frying pan
and into the fire" comes to mind when
the Pirates had to play the confident
VCU rams in their next game.
"VCU is a team with a lot of con-
fidence who believes they should be
here and believes they can win it all
Gary Overton was not joking and
neither were the Rams as the VCU
lineup jumped all over Jeff Hewitt
early, registering six runs off of seven
hits in the first three stanzas. The
Pirates would look to junior Chad
Newton, who lasted only until the
sixth inning when Newton couldn't
find the umpire's inconsistent strike
Overton would then look to one
of his youngsters, freshman Kevyn
Fulcher, who closed out the game
with a strong performance. However,
it was too late as the Pirate offense

better. This year's graduation rate was the fifth highest ever.
The CAA announced its first recipients of the John H. Randolph Inspiration Award. Established in memory of
William & Mary's former athletic director who died after a courageous battle with cancer, the award recognizes
administrators, coaches or student-athletes "who through strength of character and human spirit serve as an
inspiration to all those around to maximize their potential and ability for success "
ECU Assistant Athletic Director and 10 year cross country coach John Welbom was one of two recipients this
year. In July, 1993, Welborn was diagnosed with lymphoma. During his chemotherapy. Welbom sought advice
and comfort though Randolph. Welbom will receive an engraved crystal award and a permanent award will be on
display at the conference office, for Welbom's determination and courage while battling his illness.

The Pirates left the field for the
last time in '96 with a "L" and with a

first losing season for the Pirate base-
ball team since 1971. Despite the dis-
appointments of a young, talented
club, the Pirates achieved their share
For starters, the Bucs put six
players on the All CAA team with two
on the first team and four on the sec-
ond team. Among those on the first
team were Dunham and senior sec-
ond baseman Lamont Edwards.

senior center fielder Jason Head said.
Melvin, a 5-11 forward from
Roseboro, N.C averaged 15.7 points and
