SGA proposes additional fee increase
$2 fee to reinstate yearbook
exceeds state cap
The Student Government Association (SGA) has
passed a motion to increase student fees an additional
52. moving the total proposed student fees to $45 (com-
pared to $43 set originally). This proposal is a con-
tinuation of a debate which began Nov. 13. and ex-
ceeds a five percent cap set by the state.
Harry Bray. SGA speaker, announced that the me-
dia board has decided to approve the fe� increase and
support the yearbook's reappearance. The yearbook,
however, may not take the traditional form as it has in
the past, but it will return in some torm.
In a formal resolution document, in reference to
bringing back the print yearbook, Angie Nix, SGA trea-
surer, stated "whereas many students have expressed a
desire to bring back the print yearbook, be it therefore
resolved the Student Government Association will sup-
port a referendum to address the concerns and desires
of the student body
After a turnout of 500 votes, earlier in the semes-
ter. SGA calculated that 96 percent of students voted
in favor for the yearbook. 91 percent voted that they
would purchase a yearbook. 89 percent voted yes to a

Compiled by Tambra Zion. Taken from official ECU police reports.
The UNC chapter of the Phi
Gamma Delta fraternity at Chapel Hill
had their charter suspended after a
questionable memo addressed to
pledges came to the attention of the
UNC community and the national Phi
Gamma Delta chapter.
The memo contained lewd com-
ments encouraging pledges to take ad-
vantage of inebriated sorority girls at
an upcoming party during Rush
A group of protesters gathered
in front of the Phi Gamma Delta house
on the evening of Monday, Nov. 13
chanting "Phi Gam is a sham" and
"Sexism has got to go" according to
The Daily Tarheel, the campus news-
paper of UNC-Chapel Hill. Two sorori-
ties were evidently mentioned in the
memo, but did not participate in the
protest the paper reported.
The UNC Director of Greek Af-
fairs Ron Binder and the assistant
executive director of the fraternities
national chapter Nick Altwies stated
in the paper that the suspended char-
ter would not be removed until a com-
plete investigation is conducted. Many
at UNC believe that the memo is a
symptom of a larger issue concerning
the politics of gender relations on
In The Daily Tarheel, Chancel-
lor Michael Hooker is quoted as say-
ing, "I don't want people to focus
solely on the fraternity. We need to
focus on the broader issues that we
have allowed to develop an atmo-
sphere, a culture in which students
fail to recognize this is something
In addition to the public derision
and criticism, the fraternity is facing
disciplinary action from the national
Phi Gamma Delta chapter. They are
currently doing community service at
the Rape Crisis Center in Chapel Hill.
According to ECU's Dean of Stu-
dents Ron Speier, there are national
standards which prohibit this kind of
behavior among the Greek commu-
nity. At ECU, standards are set by both
the national fraternities and the
"One of the standards is that they
(fraternities) are to be held account-
able for activities that bring bad pub-
licity Speier said.
Another national standard bro-
ken by the memo is that "behavior,
statements and activities must not be
derogatory or demeaning towards
women, races or religion" Speier said.
According to Speier, ECU has
consistently promoted proper behav-
ior among the Greek community.
"We provide programs to let
groups know what is inappropriate
and appropriate" Speier said.
Recently, the InterFraternity
Council held a forum in which some
of these issues were addressed.

Teachers get graded
Now students get a chance to
grade their teachers.
Throughout the week of Nov. 27
to Dec. 1st, students were given ques-
tionnaires designed to assess their
opinions of each instructor's effec-
tiveness as a teacher.
A ritual surrounds the survey.
Instructors distribute pencils, ap-
point a student to be responsible for
the collection of questionnaires and
pencils and then they exit the room.
The Faculty Senate Committee
for Teaching Effectiveness and the
Office of Planning and Institutional
Research created the questionnaire
and estimated in a news release that
it should take approximately 15 min-
utes to complete. Out of the five stu-
dents TEC questioned, most insisted
that they are usually out of the door
in five minutes tops and they do not
view the questionnaires as having
any serious impact on their profes-
"I take them seriously said stu-
dent Bonnie MacMillan. "But 1 feel

The results of the questionnaire
are given to instructors only after fi-
nal grades have been posted. The
point is to help them improve their
skills as teachers.
The administration takes the re-
sults of these surveys seriously, us-
ing them as guidelines in questions
of tenure and promotion. Students
are not allowed to see the results of
the survey. This issue was taken up
by the SGA this summer. According
to Ian Eastman SGA President, the
scores from the Fall semester's sur-
vey will probably not be published.
Preliminary investigations by the
SGA have shown that students are
more likely to have access to the
scores of tenured professors, than
those that are untenured.

said. "I would think that it is pos-
sible, but I do not know at this time

Soon it will be the season to be jolly, and after draining
our brains from exams and celebrating the end to a long,
long semester, we are going to be ready to jump on that plane
o load up that car for the trip home for ham, turkey and
But, wait, before you zip up that last suitcase remember
to lock your doors.
As recently reported in TEC, our campus has seen an
increase in criminal activity. We have had three more burglar-
ies and 24 more vandalism cases this semester than last year
during the same period of time. Also, two people were at-
tacked andor robbed in a medical school parking lot back in
In these particular cases, police stated that they believed
the attackers wanted money for drugs. Captain John Ennis,
patrol division commander for the Greenville Police Depart-
ment said that most of the assaults, robberies and home break-
ins in Greenville happen because someone is trying to raise
money for drugs. Obviously, because the ECU campus is part
of the larger community, the problems of the city will occa-
sionally spill over to campus.
It is no secret that in any college town that students will
be leaving their dorm rooms and apartments over Winter break
and you can be sure would-be criminals are on the look out
for easy targets. Don't be one.
The number of police patrolling campus will decrease dur-
ing the break because so few students will actually be here.
So, follow police tips and resident hall guidelines for securing
your property, so you won't be a victim reporting a crime to
the police. Put your bikes in your dorm rooms, take home
those stereos, televisions, VCRs and anything else you think
is valuable that thieves might break into your dorm room for.
Students who live off campus are probably even more
vulnerable than the ones on campus. The Greenville police
department has a much larger vicinity to cover than the ECU
police. Their job is not to specifically patrol student living
areas, therefore, students must take precautions themselves.
Use bolt locks, secure windows, or have your mail held at the
post office or temporally sent to your permanent address while
you are away. If you are staying in Greenville over the break,
don't face the possibility of watching a thief jump out a win-
dow of your house as one TEC staff member did.
However, whether you are spending your holiday season
here or at home, be careful out there. When you are doing
that Christmas shopping, go in a group, check the back seat
of your car, don't carry cash, put gifts in the trunk of your
We know this is an ugly side of the holiday season that no
one wants to think about at this time, but we have to. Every
one out there is not filled with the love and warmth that the
season is supposed to bring out. Simple precautions may
save our property andor our life.
So, have a happy and safe holiday. We want you back in

In August of 19891 thought this
weekend w Ad never get here. But
in two days I'll be walking across the
field of Dowdy-Ficklen with the rest
of the class of 1995. Unlike many of
my fellow students, I'll be looking
back with tears.
Sounds corny, yes, but leaving
ECU is something I've dreaded since
Dec. 1993 when I donned the cap and
gown for the first time. Leaving
Greenville seemed so devastating
that I applied to graduate school and
despite much skepticism, was actu-
Those philosophic words of my
parents "You better improve your

graduate school just didn't sink in
- until I applied for grad school and
was told it was doubtful I'd ever be
admitted. Suddenly 1 regretted my
behavior over the previous four and
a half years. You see, going out four
nights a week and chasing boys ev-
ery ailernoon just wasn't very con-
ducive to learning. Besides at that
time, grad school was the farthest
thing from my mind. But thanks to
hours of studying the GRE books, I
scored well enough to be admitted
to grad school.
Those first couple months were
tough. My best friend moved home,
my boyfriend dumped me and my
landlord said pets weren't allowed so
I had to give up my cat, but after
throwing myself into school and The
East Carolinian, life was once again
great I couldn't believe how fun it
could be to meet new people. I was
always one of those people who was
happy with one best friend, but since
she graduated and moved away, 1 was
left to fend for myself.
Through grad school I met a
whole new set of friends, found pro-
fessors who cared about my academic
and personal well being and suddenly
saw school in a whole new light

important it is to become involved,

my head at least 10 times, but I still

bottom line is that there is no greater
feeling than producing something
you are proud of and being able to
say thanks when others compliment.
True, I won't miss the many
nights when the printer died at mid-
night, the early mornings when the
publisher called to say they screwed
up, but I had to resolve the problem
and the endless arguments over cen-
sorship, but I'll take those headaches
any day for the experience The East
Carolinian has given me.
I never thought when I accepted
this position that I'd be dealing with
issues as hot as censorship, but it
seems that censorship has become a
daily topic for our staff. Members of
your student body wanted to have me
fired because they didn't like the tim-
ing of a story I covered. Don't you
expect news in a timely manner?
Would you want to hear about a
bombing a week after it occurred?
Would you mind if we told you who
won the latest basketball game a
week after it was held? Timing, they
said, was the problem. Yeah, the tim-
ing didn't parallel with their agenda.
To their chagrin, the first amendment
to the U.S. Constitution prevailed.
The last time someone at-
tempted to censor The East Carolin-
ian they ended up in federal court
and the paper won thanks to the ef-
forts of our forefathers. When threat-
ened with slander, I simply said I
understand the difference between
the truth and lies. If you tell the
truth, there is no problem. The opin-
ion page and the cartoon page are
the avenues for personal opinion. The
East Carolinian prides itself in be-
ing unbiased and impartial, but for
some people the truth hurts.
When I began working at TEC
three years ago. life as a student jour-
nalist was a lot different Our facili-
ties were horrible - old. dirty, messy
and inadequate, our adviser showed
up about once a year U complain
about headlines and a typical produc-
tion night went on until the wee
hours of the morning.
When our staff began interview-
ing candidates for a fuli-time media
adviser many were worried the per-
son would drastically change the pa-
per, but what this person, Paul Wright
has done is cut our production time
drastically, totally remodel our facili-
ties, purchase new equipment inform
us on the power of the press and acted
as both an adviser and friend to our

him my personal gratitude for improv-
ing your newspaper. The East Caro-
linian won a silver medal from the
Columbia Scholastic Press Associa-
tion and with the help of Mr. Wright,
next year should bring a gold medal.
I can't imagine going to any other
job and working 12 hours a day and
not complaining. Last week I woke up
at 6 a.m. and realized after this se-
mester I'll never see my friends from
the paper again. It's hard to think of
your coworkers as friends, but despite
the diversity of our newsroom, we all
manage to get along, and I think of
these people as some of my closest
friends. Leaving is part of growing up,
but it's a part I wish I didn't have to

The East Carolinian
Let the exams begin
That time has already come upon
us, and we need to get ready for the
race. The "ice, what race? The race
to finish this semester. Everybody that
I know is like myself and just wishes
for this never-ending semester to
reach its end.
I cannot wait until my truck hits
the road and 1 am homeward bound.
The journey North we shall call it But,
there is that one obstacle that seems
to be standing in my way before I can
make this journey home, that is those
So, in order to get ready for this
trip, I need to take my finals. That
can cause a lot of stress if it is not
handled properly. So, I have come to
you, the students of ECU, with some
ideas of how to handle these stressful
exams and how to relieve this stress
following the exams.
First of all, do not cram for these
exams! You can not possibly learn ev-
erything that you need to know if you
are trying to cram it all in one night
or even two. Space your studying out
with many snack breaks and rest pe-
riods. Stressing yourself out before
even taking the exams almost cer-
tainly guarantees you an F, if your
After spacing out your studying
and you feel prepared to take this
exam, walk in with a clean spirit,
knowing that you have done all that
you can do for this exam and that you
will do the best that you can do. That
is all that can be expected of you.
Right before the exam begins, take a
deep breath, let out all your stress and
all your other thoughts with the ex-
haling of this monstrous breath.
Now sit down and take the exam.
Be thoughtful in your answers, but
do not take up too much time on each

question. There is never .ough time
to thoroughly sit ' ,wn and really
think out eaui uuuoa. Do your best
-ad try your hardest. DO NOT
STRESS! If you stress, then your
the nts begin to wander and soon
j are wondering about how your-
parents will react over your flunking
grades and what will you do next se-
There is no benefit in these ac-
tions. Relax and think before you an-
swer. Once the exam is over and you
have turned in your answers, do not
look back. Walk out and be secure in
your heart that those answers you just
turned in were the best you could do.
That is all that you can do at this point
Do not begin to stress at this point
either. What will you accomplish by
stressing right now?
After all your exams have been
taken in this fashion, now is the time
for a drastic change to occur. You have
no more finals, there is nothing hold-
ing you back from leaving Greenville,
so why are you still here. For me, it
will be to have that ceremonial
margarita that I have had since the
end of my first exams here. I've
worked hard and it s time to reward
myself. So, go out and have fun with
your friends.When you go out, go to
have fun and relieve all the stress that
has been building up over the semes-
Alright, after my last exam has
been taken, I have gone out and re-
lieved some stress, I've made the jour-
ney all the way back home, it's time
for more relaxing. I plan on waking
up when my body feels like it is ready
to do so. That could be at 9 a.m. or
3p.m I don't care. I may be working
over the break. I will not allow myself
to work more than six hours a day.
This is the true spirit of the
break, no school work. Yes, I may
think about what I plan on doing the
next semester or how I can improve
from the last one, but I will not stress
over it. Still, the grades from my
classes have not been sent to me and
I am beginning to wonder how I did.
As with myself, many of you count
on those exams to either raise or kill
No use in stressing over the
grades. They will come when they
come, there is nothing we can do to
speed up the process. So, relax, sit
back, have a drink and wait patiently
until your grades arrive. For many
of us, the stressing begins after we
actually receive our grades, and there
is no point in ruining this other time
with needless stress.
So, go into those exams, do your
best, and then walk away. Remember,
do not look back, relax and wait un-
til the grades are sent to you. Enjoy
your break and get some much
needed rest and relaxation, and come
back ready to work your butt off an-

Gift-buying made cheap
It's the thought that counts, right?
Wrong. At least, wrong according
to many materialistic business owners.
CEO's of companies such as Sears,
Belk and Wal-Mart want you to believe
that your loved ones won't be happy
unless they unwrap a $1200 stereo or
a $2000 computer from you on Christ-
While this is all well and good if
you happen to be one of those CEO's
and can actually afford such extrava-
gant gifts, these prices are a bit out of
reach for most of us. What is the poor
college student to do?
The answer is simple. Break away
from the capitalist Christmas tradition
and bring back the "good old days
when it was the thought that counted
and not the price tag. With a little
imagination and effort, you can find
mderful presents for your friends and
family for under $20.
The first thing to do is look at the
recipients of the gifts. Are they male
or female? What are their hobbies?
Their likes and dislikes? Their favorite
food, color and kind of music? All of
these questions can point toward pos-
sible present ideas. Sure, we'd all like
a new stereo, but it is the personalized
presents that we will remember and
treasure. By tailoring the gift to fit the
person, you show your friends that you
really thought about what kind of gift
they would appreciate.
So once you've got all this infor-
mation, the question becomes what to
do with it Here's an example. You dis-
covered that a friend's favorite food is
Mexican. Why not get them a gift cer-
tificate to Chico's or Mazatlan? It's not
very expensive, and what college stu-
dent wouldn't enjoy a free meal?
Another example. Say a friend's
favorite color is red Why not get them
an assortment of strawberry, raspberry
or cherry scented candles? Even unlit
these candles can make an entire room
smell good. And they'll really thank you-
after their next romantic candlelit din-
ner with that special someone.
The possibilities are endless.
Someone likes classic rock music? Why
not get them a gift certificate to a music
store? That way you don't have to keep
up with what they already own, and
they can use the gift certificate for CDs,
t-shirts, posters, carrying cases or any-
thing else they might need.
If you don't like the idea of giving
gift certificates, there's still a cheap
alternative for musical gifts: used CDs.
Greenville has several local record
stores with a wide variety of used mu-
sic Most of the discs are in excellent
condition, and can be made to look new
with fresh jewel cases (which are also
By the same token, the readers
on your Christmas list can be satisfied
with used books. While some of these
get a little dog-eared, like-new used
books can usually be found in almost
any genre of fiction. Also, hunt .e

tables at any major book store chain.
Good deals lurk everywhere

you want a radio-friendly sound, es-
pecially not in the current field of
studio punk and classic rock
wannabe bands dominating the air-
waves these days (God, I love MTV).
So, not surprisingly, P is a
pretty diverse album. Its tone is
constantly shifting, seldom staying
at the same level for two songs in
a row. While this could be distract-
ing for some bands, P manages to
hold it together.

Assistant Lifestyle Editor
' In the hustle and bustle of the
Christmas season, many of us lose
sight of the true meaning of the sea-
son. Only how many shopping days
The coming of the season should
remind us of those who are less for-
tunate than ourselves. But the fact of
the matter is we tend to lose track of
who needs our help the most
Christmas is a stressful time of
year, but imagine not being concerned
with the "clearance sales" at Brody's.
Instead imagine being worried about
feeding your family or being able to
put a warm coat on your child's back.
It's a sobering thought
Instead of just thinking or being
concerned, some local businesses have
decided to join hands to help the
Greenville area's less fortunate
Local businesses such as Back-
stage Music, Peasant's Cafe, City Mar-
ket and Big Splash have pledged their
support of the HomeGrown Charity
Benefit "It seems at this time of year
we're more aware of the needs around
us that many have. We re glad to have
a small part in sharing our blessings
with others stated City Market's
owner Grant Wright
In association with Palomino
Advertising, LeeWay Productions pre-
sents the HomeGrown Charity Ben-
efit on Dec. 15 at the Attic to support
the National Child Rights Alliance,
PICASO (Pitt County AIDS Service
Organization) and the Salvation Army.
The HomeGrown Charity
Benefit's organizer, Lee Crumpton,
concurred. "We see it as a way to help
out some needy charities for the holi-
day season he said. "In return all we
ask is that the public come out and
enjoy these talented up and coming
The event's headliner is Flyin'
Mice. The Chapel Hill quartet is play-
ing in support of their newest LP re-
lease, Brighter Day. The eclectic band
has enjoyed a regional following since

Hill's Flyin' Mice, who will be the headlining act at this year's

their beginnings in 1989.
The charity benefits also give
some of the lesser known local acts
the opportunity to perform to a larger
audience. Greenville trio Melanie
Sparks Band has been playing at
Peasant's Cafe and the event gives
Sparks more regional exposure. A full
length CD is underway for the band,
but in the meantime the band has
been enjoying collegiate radio expo-
sure from their six-song demo cas-
sette, Guess What's In My Shorts!
Those attending the HomeGrown
Charity Benefit are encouraged to
bring a donation in exchange for a
cover charge. Canned food or other
clothing donations give a $2 discount
and will go to PICASO (Pitt County
AIDS Service Organization). Bring a
winter coat and get in free. AH cloth-
ing donations will be distributed to
the Salvation Army. If you have noth-
ing to give, get in for $5. All door pro-
ceeds go the NCRA (National Child
Rights Alliance), a group directed by
youth and adult survivors of abuse
Next week's hectic exam sched-
ule is a stressful time for most of us,
just as tax time is for business. But
especially this time of year, it's impor-
tant to keep the needs of the less for-
tunate in mind.
QVC breaks TV Whore
The following is a foer dream
conjured by the tired brain of our be-
loved TV Whore after trying valiantly
to fill an assignment that proved too
much for even he The TV Whore may
have no shame, but he does have a
breaking point, as you will see
I was reading "Back to the
Batcave Adam (TV's Batman) West's
autobiography, when my editor gave
me a call on the Batphone.
"Yo, Kevin he says, " I have an
assignment for this week's TV Whore
I placed an "X-Files" trading card
in the book to hold my place, muted
the TV, and listened intently, ready for
"What I'd like you to do is some-
thing similar to that piece that Hugh
Gallagher did for Rolling Stone, re-
member? It was "Seven Days and Seven
Nights Alone with MTV where they
holed him up in a hotel room and
forced him to watch nothing but MTV
for 168 hours
I asked, "You're paying for a ho-
tel room for me?"
"Ah, no. We just have some guys
that are going to beat you if they catch
you trying to leave your apartment"
"Well, MTV has been done. What
do you want me to watch for 168
"We were thinking QVC. Oh,
and Q2 also. Just fluctuate between
those two channels. We're not com-
pletely evil at TEC
So again the gauntlet was thrown.
I planned to answer this challenge and
spend my waking moments with the
happy hosts of QVC and Q2. Here goes.
26 November, 7:00 a.m. - Begin-
ning the morning with host Pat James
DeMitri and the QVC Morning Show.
Pat usually has some guy as a co-host
but today her perky personage is fry-
ing solo. This isn't too bad. Pat is aw-
fully cute, kind of like that fourth grade
teacher you had a crush on. She is ra-
diating warmth, and you can barely see
that she is showing (about three
months) under her Christmas iron-on
and Aleene's Puff Painted sweatshirt
And, I am still able to get the news
and weather, thanks to encapsulated
bits from USA Today. My roommate
comes in, grabs her sunglasses, and
asks if I'm going to class today. I
mumble something through milk and
Pop-Tart and she rolls her eyes at me,
closing and locking the door behind
her. Hey, these Lee Sands Holiday
leather items look kind of cool!
2:39 p.m. - My roommate wakes
me up coming in the door. She asks if
I know that there are some big guys in
a 7ECvan parked outside. I hardly hear
her, because I am angry at myself for
falling asleep during the two-hour Ba-
varian Art Glass Jewelry special. As I
stand, wiping crumbs off of my bath-
robe, I notice a yellow notepad with
QVC codes scribbled all over it I don't
remember writing them.
4:00 p.m. - After falling asleep on
QVC, I decide to flip over to its younger,
hipper spin-off: Q2. I am just in time
for Santa Shape-Up, hosted by Jenni-
fer Dempster. Hey! She's also on
ESPN's "Bodyshaping Well, so I've
heard, because I never personally
watch the show. The big item for sale

Toy Story offers shallow fun
The hottest family film this holi-
day season is Disney's Toy Story. Fea-
turing completely computer-gener-
ated images, Toy Story brings the
toys in the bedroom of a little boy
named Andy to life.
The main toy in Andy's bedroom
is a cowboy named Woody (voiced by
Tom Hanks). Woody garners the most
attention from Andy and is therefore
in charge of all the other toys in the
bedroom. At a meeting early in the
film, Woody explains that the fre-
quency with which the toys get
played with is not as important as
being there for Andy when he does
want to play. This concept is easy for
Woody to say but difficult to do,
when later in the film Woody does
not get played with very often.
Joining Woody in the toy chest
is a dinosaur (Wallace Shawn) who
cannot figure out how to be fero-
cious, Little Bo Peep (Annie Potts)
who has an infatuation with Woody,
a piggy bank (John Ratzenberger), a
platoon of plastic army soldiers (lead
by the voice of R. Lee Ermey). and
Mr. Potato Head (hilariously voiced
by Don Rickles). One of the strengths
of Toy Story is that almost every one
of the toys takes on an individual per-
The funniest lines come from Mr.
Potato Head, who has a grumpy de-
meanor from having his face con-
stantly knocked off. When Andy
opens presents for his birthday, Mr.
Potato Head wishes hard for a Mrs.

Potato Head, says he must shave, and
rips off his mustache.
Woody becomes Andy's second
favorite toy early in the film when
Andy receives a Buzz Lightyear (Tim
Allen). With a flashing laser, retract-
able helmet and a digital voice, Buzz
immediately becomes Andy's favorite
toy, much to Woody's consternation.
Though a conflict is usually nec-
essary to tell a story, the conflict in
Toy Story seems forced. The scenes
involving all the toys were much more
enjoyable than the feud between
Woody and Buzz. When Woody
knocks Buzz out of a window, the
story really bogs down. And when
Buzz and Woody wind up in the sa-
distic neighbors' house, the story
slows to a crawl. The most memo-
rable scenes occur at the beginning
and end of the film in Andy's bed-
room, not during chase scenes or
I would have liked to have seen
Woody and Buzz come to an agree-
ment of the differences through life
in the bedroom. Talking through
their problems could have been as
interesting as the overblown adven-
ture in the "real" world.
Toy Story has no real substance.
Beauty and the Beast succeeds so
well as an animated film because it
deals with the larger issue of beauty
while involving the audience in its
captivating plot. The makers of Toy
Story seem so enthralled with the
idea of computer animation that they
put Woody and Buzz in as many un-
usual places as possible without re-
maining true to the story. In place
of an interesting story, the filmmak-
ers substitute a multitude of con-
Along with the conflict between
Buzz and Woody is the conflict aris-
ing because Buzz refuses to believe
that he is a toy. He thinks he is the
real Buzz Lightyear. His depression
when he learns the truth develops no
empathy from the audience because
his character has never become com-
passionate and the conflict feels con-
Toy Story's innocuous plot will
draw in audiences all season long.
Unfortunately, Disney has again aimed
at the lowest common denominator
in a film. Ever since Beauty and the
Beast, the finest achievement ever in
animation, the filmmakers at Disney
have relied on formulaic plots which
take no chances. What a crime to take
such an innovative concept such as
toys that vhink, talk and walk and give
it a storyline with the all the ingenu-
ity of a Sylvester Stallone movie.
Toy Story is certainly fun. I just
wish Disney would take a few more
risks. Movies with the intelligence of
Million Dollar Duckand That Darned
Cat leave the audience flat Next time
Disney tries a new concept in film, 1
wish they'd try the concept of writing
an interesting story to go with it
On a scale of one to ten, Toy Story
rates a seven.

Mark Hamill smiles at me seductively.

Jill Bauer. Has lumbago and is an in-
somniac because the swelling keeps
her up sometimes. She loves QVC be-

all, QVC is like any kind of over-the-

doses, and with food or milk. And any-
way, I got all of my Christmas shop-
ping done. Right now, my roommate

I've never heard him go before. On
"Cigarette Butts" he gives us a
deep, sing-song drone, the kind of
sing-speaking Lou Reed has based
a career on. It sounds great; I didn't
know Gibby had it in him.

weird world of celebrity. Obviously

Stipe and I cried tonight In an im-
age I'll never forget, our hero bids
a speechless farewell to the savior
as Stipe drives away in River
Though the guitar work on this
sne's kind of simple, Haynes trans-
forms his usually gravelly vocals
into a lovely, soft patter. Again, I
didn't think he was capable of such
a stretch, but Haynes proved me
One stretch I kind of wish
Haynes hadn't made is on P's cover
of Abba's "Dancing Queen They
chose to play this one straight, and
the vocal is completely outside of
Gibby's range. It was funny to hear
him warbling so earnestly through
this trash at first, but after five or
six listens the joke wears thin.
A note to every band on Earth:
yes. Abba (and most other cheesy
disco era pop) is funny, often hys-
A couple of verses of "Dancing
Queen" is a good laugh. A four-
minute cover is torture.
Musical departures uch as
these are carfully placed through-
out the album. Between them, P
swings into what I think of as their
refrain, a series of songs in the
mension style of the Butthole Surf-
ers. Tunes like "Zing Splash
"Oklahoma "Mr. Officer" and
"White Man Sings the Blues" could
have come right off Independent
Worm Saloon or even Locust Abor-
That's not to say that these
songs are bad. Quite the contrary,
these tunes give ' a snap it would
lack without them. "Mr. Officer for
example, is a vicious bluegrass at-
tack on close-minded right wing
culture about a redneck sherriff with
a gay son. It's music with sharp
teeth that's not afraid to sink those
Another stand-out track is "Jon
Glenn (Mega Mix) a nine-minute ex-
travaganza of swirly space music
that sounds like the soundtrack to
some demented astronaut movie.
Along the same lines is "Scrapings

thing that runs nearly eight minutes.
I also really like "Die Anne a
'50s-style slow-dance number about
a girl who wants to commit suicide.
"Be true to yourself the gravel-

It's a cruel pun, but it makes me
While it may be obvious that
Depp wrote the softer stuff and
Haynes wrote the weird stuff, that
doesn't take away from P's success.
The two styles mesh surprisingly
The guitar work, half of which
is Depp's, is nice stuff as well. It's
not always something to write home
about, but it often soars. Kind of like

flag football tournament
A number of intramural sports
activities reached closure this week
as participants engage in the final
action of the semester before prepar-
ing for exams.
In perhaps one of the most ea-
gerly anticipated match-ups in several
years "Butterfingers" defeated the
defending champion "Showtime" in
the Co-Rec Flag Football Gold Divi-
sion finals Monday night
This contest between the only
two undefeated teams in the league
contained numerous individual match-
ups including boyfriend against girl-
friend, two sets of roommates against
each other, relative against relative
and co-worker vs. co-worker. However,
when all the talk was over and the
game began, it was the challengers
who came to play.
Jeff Schutte of "Butterfingers
took the opening kickoff back for a
touchdown and then Steve Roberson
intercepted a pass on "Showtime's"
first possession to set the tone for the
Later in the first half, Schutte
struck again when he took a short
pass from Roberson and turned it into
a 65-yard touchdown play. In the sec-
ond haif, "Showtime" held on defense
and capitalized on a short touchdown
pass from Anderson to Steve Flippin
and followed that with a conversion
pass to Heather Dawson to pull within
However, on the ensuing drive,
"Butterfingers" got a big play as Chris
Nunn got behind the defense and
caught a Roberson bomb to set up
the first and goal from the 5-yard line.
After holding for the first three plays,
"Showtime's" defense took a cruel
bounce on the fourth down play.
Roberson's pass into the end zone
ricocheted off the face of the defender
and took a fortuitous bounce into the
hands of Jennifer Collins for the game
Lynda' McCormick caught the
extra point pass also off a tipped ball
in the end zone to account for the
Members of the champion "But-
terfingers" team include those men-
tioned above as well as Colin
Mohlmann, Lisa McCarthy, Chip
Flynn, Amanda Ross, Zina Briley and
"Showtime" was anchored by the
pass-catching and defensive efforts of
Russell Duvall and Allison Kemp.
Other members of "Showtime" in-
cluded Matt Snyder, Ronell Jessup,
Stephen Smith, Debra Riffle and
In the Purple division, results of
the final were not available at press
time for the match-up of "Phi Sigma
Pi" and "Silent Attack In the semi-
finals, "Silent Attack" rode scores from
Peter Crume and-Misty Triplett to a
12-6 win over "Fleming Hall The "Si-
lent Attack" unit featured outstanding
efforts from several longtime IM vet-
erans such as Scott Smith, Fred Royer,
Kelie Valdez, Mo Beetham and Josh
Lothridge. Aaron Jacobs tallied the
lone touchdown for "Fleming Hall
In the other semi-final, Vu Donie's
fall domination of Co-Rec sports was
ended as "Club 106" fell 27-6 to "Phi

by Romel Roucasas. David Emmons,
Jason Pointer and Denny O'Brien also
scored for the winners while Nick

Doak Walker Award 0
Ohio State's Eddie George
(AP) - Like an excited child anx
ious to shake hands with a star ath-
lete he's only seen from afar, Doak
Walker looked forward to meeting
Ohio State's Eddie George.
"I saw most of his games on tele-
vision and I'm excited to finally meet
him Walker said Monday after it was
announced that George won the top
college running back award named for
the former SMU great
"His statistics and the love his
teammates had for him was very im-
pressive. I wish I was that young again.
He'd be my idol
The pair met at an awards ban-
quet in Dallas. Walker, who attended
Monday's news conference at the
headquarters of award sponsor GTE,
presented George with the trophy.
George, speaking via satellite
from the Ohio State campus, said he
was eager to meet Walker. "It was
quite an experience for me he said.
George, a senior, also was a final-
ist for the award last year.
But a year ago, he ran more like
a bulky fullback than a swift tailback.
So he dedicated himself to a grueling
offseason workout geared to improve
his speed, quickness and outside
The results were phenomenal,
both for George and the Buckeyes.
George became a Heisman Tro-
phy finalist by leading Ohio State to
an 11-1 record and a No. 4 ranking
with 1,826 yards and 24 touchdowns,
all but one rushing. He led the na-
tion in scoring, was fourth with 2,225
all-purpose yards and fifth in rushing.
He also was consistent, with 100
yards in every game and more than
200 yards three times, including a
school-record 314 yards against Illi-
Buckeyes coach John Cooper
admitted he wasn't bashful about let-
ting George carry the offensive load.
"The ball's not very heavy. He can
carry that thing as many times as we
let him have it Cooper said. "The
amazing thing about it is, after play-
ing a tough game Saturday, he'd be
out there leading our team when we
ran wind sprints the following week
Just as amazing is George also
has found time to remain on sched-
First four home
Wondering why you haven't seen
the ECU men's basketball teams play
lately? You're not the only one.
When this year's schedule came
out, many people asked why weren't
there more basketball games sched-
uled at home. True, there are four
regular season games this semester
for the men, but they have all been
scheduled over holiday breaks.
ECU's first home opener game
against Elon was Nov. 25. during
Thanksgiving break. Attendance was
low for the first game, when there
should be a lot of fan support for the
home opener, especially since this is
Joe Dooley's first year, as head coach.
The same can be said for the
Four of ECU's top 20 crowds at Minges
Coliseum came during the '9495
1. 7,670 vs. UNC-W (Feb. 25, 1995)
2. 7,611 vs. James Madison (Jan. 14, 1995)
3. 7,500 vs. EastTenn. State (Jan. 6, 1995)
5. 6,865 vs. Old Dominion (Feb. 20, 1995)
and her play-
they too have two games over Christ-
The next game in Miriges before
everyone goes home for Christmas
break is actually during the break.
These are not the best times to hold
basketball games, since most of the
students are gone for the holidays.
However, this scheduling is not done
on purpose. In fact, a lot of the games
on the schedule are determined years
Conference games are mandated
for each year, and the schedules are
put out in advance. For example, the
conference schedule for next season
has already been set
Several factors determine when
non-conference games are to be
played. Games must be scheduled
around exam schedules since aca-
demic studies are very important for
According to assistant coach
Martin McGillan, every team tries to
get the best home schedule they can
because most of the fan support
comes from students and they are the
backbone to the crowds. In fact, ECU
has 14 homes games this season
which is the most since 1935, but the
games this semester are played when

ule to graduate this spring while also
volunteering at a cancer hospital and
spending time talking with children.
Those factors also contributed to
him winning the Walker award. As a
bonus, Ohio State receives $10,000
for George's honor.
George beat out Karim Abdul-
Jabbar of UCLA, Tiki Barber of Vir-
ginia, Tim Biakabatuka of Michigan,
Warrick Dunn of Florida State,
George Jones of San Diego State,
Wasean Tait of Toledo and Moe Will-
iams of Kentucky.
Although Troy Davis of Iowa
State and Darnell Autry of Northwest-
ern also are running backs and
Heisman finalists, they weren't up for
the Walker award because it goes to
players within a year of graduating,
and both are sophomores.
After accepting the Walker,
George will be honored for it again
tonight in Orlando, Fla in a nation-
ally televised ceremony for all colle-
giate award winners.
And then he's off to New York

ECU's men's basketball team
traveled to Spartanburg, S.C. to
take Wofford College, in what was
thought to be an easy victory.
The Monday night game pit-
ted the Pirates against the Terri-
ers, who are making their debut
in the Division I level of play in
collegiate basketball this season.
The Pirates did come away with a
victory, but only by a 10 point mar-
"This is a tough place to play
said ECU Head Coach Joe Dooley.
Indeed it was tough for the
Pirates. Wofford was down by nine
points at one time and cut the lead
to 57-52 with 4:12 remaining in
the game. The Pirates pulled ahead
by four when Tony Parharn hit one
of two free throws, but after a
Terrence Giiyard bucket for Wofford
ECU's lead was held to two points,
Morris Grooms and Tim Basham
stepped up big in the final moments
of play after an eight-foot jumper by
Grooms and a three point basket
The Pirates shot poorly from the
free throw line hitting just 16 of 31
shots. However, when the shots were
needed the Pirates pulled through
and hit 5 of 6 free throws in the fi-
nal 49 seconds.
Dooley realized the importance
of hitting free throw shots and
thought his team could have done
a better job.
"We could have put the game
away earlier if we made our free
throws said Dooley. "It seemed if
we had done it earlier we wouldn't
have had to make a lot of pressure
free throws as we did later
Leading the way for Pirate
scorers were Jonathan Kerner with
19 points. Grooms with 11 points,
Basham with 10 points and Parham
with nine points.
The Pirates will travel to
Conway, S.C. to take on the Coastal
Carolina Chanticleers. Tip off is
slated for 3 p.m.

NBA referees reach agreement
(AP) - NBA officials, missing
games and missing paychecks be-
cause of a two-month-long lockout,
have ratified a new contract and are
ready to return to work.
Many are not happy with the
final offer from the league, as shown
by the narrow 27-26 vote in favor
Monday night. But it means they
could be back on the courts blow-
ing their whistles within a week.
And many NBA players, tired
of replacement refs, are glad they're
"I can't wait to see the old refs
back. It's going to be incredible. It's
time to get this B.S. out of the way.
When you have inexperienced refs,
they try hard, but they make
crummy calls Miami Heat forward
Kevin Willis said.
Replacement officials, mostly
from the CBA, have been handling
NBA games since the lockout be-
gan Oct. 1, amid complaints from
players that they sometimes didn't
have games under control and
didn't know the NBA game.
In a game Monday betwee Mi-
ami and Boston, there was a fight
between the Celtics' Pervis Ellis and
the Heat's Kurt Thomas that
prompted police and security
personel to separate players and keep
fans off the court Boston won the
game in double overtime.
"Even though we beat ourselves,
the refereeing was horrendous. They
shouldn't be able to call a high school
game. It's sickening what they do.
They blew the whistle too much, I
thought there was an echo in the
building. At one point I was scared
to touch anyone said Heat center
Alonzo Mourning, who complained
last season about the regular refer-
ees and their calls in the playoffs.
When the regular refs will return
is not certain. They voted Monday on
the day that replacement crews were
to expand from two to three. And the
vote reflected the dissatisfaction of
"Not everybody was totally
pleased with the deal, b?jt the rank
and file spoke said Fred Slaughter,
the attorney representing the offi-
cials. "It was a majority
Slaughter couldn't guess when
the referees will be back on court.
"I hope soon he said. "I can't
get you a date
Jeffrey Mishkin, the NBA's chief
legal officer, said he planned to meet
today with Slaughter to work out
"If we can reach a signed agree-
ment in the next few days, then the
referees should be back on the court
within a week he said.
Veteran official Mike Mathis,
who was on the committee negoti-
ating with the owners, said his
group was split.
"You could say it was a good-
news, bad-news situation if you want
to Mathis said after Monday's 4
14-hour meeting at a hotel near
O'Hare International Airport.
"We're all happy to be going
to back to work, but there are some
veteran officials who feel this deal
wasn't good for them. Obviously
there are some questions about pen-
sion and severance money we have
Fifty-three of the 55 referees
voted, with Jake O'Donnell and Jack
Madden the absentees because of
Paul Mihalak, a 26-year veteran
official, said the absences of those
two could have swung the outcome.
"This could have gone the

y other way he said. "But we'll live
" Slaughter said there were sev-
eral issues debated Monday, includ-
� ing a pension plan. Under the new
deal, pensions would go from $2,700
for every year worked to $3,330 in
�' the final year of the contract
Under the five-year agreement,
first-year referees would make
$75,000 this year and $99,000 in the
final year of the deal. Veteran offi-
cials would be paid $211,000 this
year and $278,000 in the final year.
The league has claimed the
raises would make NBA officials the

highest paid in sports, but the refer-
ees said they would not
"With our new deal, we feel we'll
be close to baseball, but still well be-
low where hockey officials are at"
Mihalak said. "We'll never catch
The NBA said the referees will
not get retroactive play for the games
missed since the lockout began.
"There is nothing to indicate we
will receive play for the time we
missed. Nobody walking out of this
room feels that we will Mathis said.
And Mihalak stressed that the
pension plan is a concern, especially
for the older refs.
"I'm one of those officials"where
the pension situation in this deal is
not a great one he said. "What it is
going to do is force me to work longer
than I planned on doing he said.
Now it's time to get back to do-
ing what they know.
"All our guys need to take physi-
cals in New Jersey. After they pass
the stress test and physicals and a
short briefing on the rules, they
should be ready to go Mathis said.

students most likely will not be there
to cheer on the Pirates.
When scheduling the games, a lot
of the decision making comes down
to where ECU has played before, and
if those teams are willing to make a
commitment to come back and play
in Greenville. A good example of this
is Colorado St when four years ago
ECU traveled to Fort Collins, Colo, to
take on the Rams, in agreement they
would come to ECU and play the Pi-
rates. The Rams will now come to
Greenville this Dec. 20 for a match-
up with the Pirates.
"It's a big peg board said
McGillan. "Everybody is trying to play
The schedules try to accommo-
date all the teams involved. Some-
times it is not that easy. When confer-
ence play starts most teams don't want
to venture too far away from home to
play non-conference contests. Confer-

Did you know that the EAST CAROLINIAN thinks that "DATE
RAPE" is FUNNY and SHOULD BE JOKED ABOUT!
( Yeah, we -didn't either until this article below came out.)
On Thursday, November 16, 1995, THE EAST CAROLINIAN printed
a comic entitled: " If Pigs Could Fly" The East Carolinian, in this
comic makes "HUMOROUS" and "COMICAL" innuendoes at "DATE

BY: PAUL HAGWOOD
We at the STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION are appalled
and embarrassed at the ETHICAL and MORAL BEHAVIOR of the
EDITOR, NEWS EDITOR, and the WRITER of the COMIC
We all know the 1st Amendment guarantees the "Freedom of Speech"
but for everyone that your Newspaper affects we think MAKING
HUMOROUS and JOKING COMICS about "DATE RAPE" should even
question your MORALS just a bit?
We believe that the Easi Carolinian
revised If this is what our EDITOR of the paper finds HUMOR0

,�.t think of the image our paper has portrayed �� C-� after
publishing 12,000 copies. Great image for our Future Students,
Athletic Recruits, Med. and Grad School Applicants.)
The Student Government Association as well as the Students
Administrators, Board of Trustees, Advertisers, mgm BO! and
Greenville community members strive to make EC� and
Ration increasingly better and we apologia for the views ha.
our Editors and the East Caroliman have Expressed! ��" f
serious of an issue this is and that its not a JOKING MATTER. We
bTve the East Carolinian and its Editing Staff shou.d receive some
education on "DATE RAPE" and understand how serious this sublet
really is. Furthermore if we can educate people on DATE RAPE
maybe we can help people understand this problem.
To the EDITOR and the East Carolinian Staff we will gladly
provide you with information in regards to this issue. You can also
call The Real Criser Center at 758-4357.
P.S. We think an apology is in order to the whole community.
