Fee increase proposed for fall

ECU students will have to dig a
little deeper in their pockets next
year to pay for the possible increase
in student activity fees.
The ECU Boa-d of Trustees at a
meeting on Dec. 8th suggested set-
ting the student activity fees at $689
for the 1996-1997 academic school
year. This is an increase of $37 over
this year's student activity fees.
"The increase in fees would go
into effect at the beginning of the
fall semester said Richard Brown,
vice chancellor of business affairs.
The recommendations for an in-
crease in fees will go to the Univer-
sity of North Carolina Board of Gov-
ernors, which has the authority to
set student fees for all UNC institu-
The majority of the money re-
ceived from the increase in fees will
pay for the operation of the new Stu-
dent Recreation Center, which is
scheduled to open next summer.
Other areas that would benefit
from raising fees are the Student
Media Board, the Athletic Depart-
ment and computer technology. All
the fee increases were endorsed by
the Student Government Association.
"One of the ways the fees will
benefit the students at ECU will be
by allowing them to have a high
spied network allowing them to be
on the cutting edge of computer tech-
nology Brown said.
The Student Media Board in-
crease was requested to pay for the
cost of a yearbook. The last printed
ECU yearbook, The Buccaneer, was
distributed in 1990. Since then a
video yearbook has been provided to
the students. Trustees endorsed the
media board fee increase contingent
on the presentation of a detailed plan
for the yearbook at their next meet-
The trustees also endorsed a
new debt service fee of $8 to help
pay for the construction of the new
intramural fields.
"The $8 will help ECU pay off the
mortgage of the intramural field, a
$1.6 million project" Brown said.
Brown also said the raise in the
student activity fees will benefit the
sports programs at ECU.
"To get conference affiliation we
have to enhance our programs which
is driving up cost" Brown said.
ECU is not the only school in the
UNC-system schools who are increas-
ing fees. Brown said that every school
system is required to request a fee
increase by the end of this month.
Many students on campus are
very unhappy over fee increases.
"I don't think they need to raise
the fees, because we pay enough al-
ready said Krista Kempe, a freshman
biology major.
Another student is upset because
she feels she is already paying too
much for tuition.
"I don't think there should be any
more increases said Lisa Goodman,
a sophomore speech pathology major.
"We have had increases every year,
and I have never seen the benefits.
Out-of -state students have it bad. It
is hard to find money to come here
Brown said other options were
pursued, but there was no other way
to enhance programs at ECU.
"The fee increase will help have
a dramatic impact on student life
Brown said.

In response to the American Red
Cross' emergency appeal for blood,
ECU students are encouraged to do-
nate blood at today's blood drive at
The drive, sponsored by the Bi-
ology Club, will take place from noon
until 6 p.m.
According to the Blood Services
Consultant of Pitt County, Debbie
Page, the current nationwide blood
shortage is the result of patient and
hospital demand exceeding the sup-
The blood collection shortage
began because of low donations dur-
ing the holiday season.
Then the Blizzard of 1996 fur-
ther decreased the supply because
transportation to blood centers be-
came impossible and many centers
were forced to close.
"Large centers such as those in
Boston and Norfolk were closed due
to the winter storms Page said.
"Those centers usually collect 12,000
to 15,000 units a day
In order to change the current
situation, the Red Cross hopes to col-
lect several hundred units of blood
over the next few days.
In an effort to help, the goal of
today's campus blood drive is to col-
lect 125 units, but hopes are for 250
"We think this event will be very
successful. The amount of response
of help we've gotten will contribute
well to solving the problem Page
Page said that although many
people are responding to the Red
Cross' appeal, a problem is that only
six percent of the population donates.
Page said another setback is that
people often don't feel that their do-
nation can make a difference. How-
ever, Page said that one donation can
help as many as four people.
"That makes a big difference
considering one automobile accident
can use 30 to 40 units of blood Page

cused on the ECU student population

About the Liberty Bowl fans.
Joyner to receive
new painting
I would like to thank the 12,000 or so East Carolina fans that were
there for the Liberty Bowi game. It was just a wonderful experience for
everyone. We had a great week On Friday afternoon at about four o'clock,
they had a parade, the Liberty Bowl parade, and it ends up coming down
Beale St. It was so exciting. I rode in the .parade in one of the cars, and
virtually everyone along the parade route was wearing purple and gold. It
was just a tremendous outpouring of affection for East Carolina University
and a great demonstration of spirit by our students and friends.
About the Liberty Bowl game
I thought the Pirates performed exceptionally well. It was a hard fought
game in the sense that both defenses played brilliantly.
About the increase in drug violations
We do take this issue of drug usage, and the selling of drugs, very
seriously. There is a policy by the Board of Governors which was adopted a
few years ago which requires each of the institutions to set certain penalties
for those who are found to be either using drugs or selling drugs on campus.
It's our intention to comply fully with the guidelines of the Board of Gover-
nors, and we believe that drug usage is not appropriate on campus. We will
take every step that we can to ensure that students are free of this contami-
nating influence. Taking every step we can take not only involves enforce-
ment but it also involves education, which were attempting to do through
student life, arid that is an ongoing effort In some sense, when there is an
increase in the number of arrests or violations it is a problem that we need to
take into account I think this is something that is troubling to me
About the student fee increase
On an ongoing basis we are required to review our fees and to make
adjustments in the fees. Some of our costs are increasing due to inflationary
pressures and other factors. Sometimes we have a need to increase the
programs that we think would be to the benefit of the students and in so
doing, we will bring about the need for increased fees. A case in point would
be the student recreation center, and its opening this summer. Unfortu-
nately, it has been delayed, but it will be opened this summer. When we open
that center, we will have an increase in costs. This is a facility that students
began to ask for from the very first day I arrived on the campus, and we are
now finally able to deliver on their request It's gcng to be a wonderful
addition to student life and the university. It will obviously require additional
costs, additional fees. There are a number of areas in which we are proposing
fee increases. In any case, these fee increases have been very carefully ana-
lyzed, both administratively and in concert with student government and
student committees. We are required to do that to have the consultation of
student groups, but I hope that we would even in absence of that clause
because it is a health way to proceed.

The foundation awarded Olsen a
$5,000 commission and $1,00 in ex-
penses for his 3.5-foot by 10-foot
acrylic representation of Fifth Street.

quite a honor Olsen said.

Teaching program expands

Aasttiant New Editor
Current and prospective school
teachers can expect an improvement in
the area's teaching program thanks to
ECU'S Model Clinical Teaching Pro-
For the past six years, ECU and
Pitt County Schools have worked to-
gether to improve the education pro-
cess of teachers by providing more ex-
perience by way of extensive internships
and non-traditional teaching programs.
According to Dr. Betty Beacham,
director of the Model Clinical Teaching
Program, ECU's program serves as a
catalyst for many improvements in the
teacher education system.
"We truly believe, and our data
show, that the methods we are develop-
ing will mean better-prepared teachers
and administrators and better educated
children in our public schools
Beacham said.
Currently a new plan is being de-
veloped that will form an alliance be-
tween ECU, Pitt County Schools and
school systems from other counties. The
plan will form the East Carolina Clini-
cal Schools Network and will link Pitt
Beaufort Craven, Edgecombe, Greene,
Lencir, Martin, NashRocky Mount and
Wayne County school systems.
The new network, which will have
about 500 student participants during
its first year, is scheduled to begin op-
eration in the fall.
Dean of ECU'S School of Educa-
tion, Dr. Charles Coble, said the depart-
ment is exited about the expansion of

the program and is looking forward to
continued success.
"Our partnership with Pitt County
Schools has been productive and en-
riching for everyone involved Coble
said. "The expansion is just another
example of our commitment to public
education in eastern North Carolina
ECU's program has provided year-
long internships for several senior el-
ementary education majors in the Pitt
County School system. It is estimated
that within the next four years, the ex-
pansion of the program will provide stu-
dent internships in 17 counties.
According to Beacham, the typical
experience level of graduating teachers
at other universities is about 10 weeks
of classroom experience. The new part-
nership will ensure that every student
in the network will have at least one
year's experience in the classroom upon
leaving the university.
Beacham said the prograr ana the
new network amounts to a win-win situ-
ation for all involved including children,
parents, prospective beginning teachers,
veteran teachers and university faculty.
"Our students will be more skilled,
more knowledgeable and better pre-
pared Beacham said, adding that the
program will provide better teachers for
the area's public schools.
ECU's esteemed model teaching
program has received three national
awards including the 1994 Distin-
guished Program in Teacher Education
Award presented by the National Asso-
ciation of Teacher Educators.

at Creech said.
Creech also said he believed the
suspect was extremely drunk, due to
the fact that he fell back into his apart-
ment after firing the gun and stayed
there until police arrested him.
The incident took place on Sat-
urday Dec. 16, between 1:30-1:45 a.m.
Greenville Police Department was
called by an eyewitness who lives be-
side the shooter at Tar River Apart-
ments. Greenville Police arrived at the
scene at 4:30 a.m.
At that time, the area was secured
and the Greenville Police Department
Emergency Response Team was acti-
vated. The suspect was taken into
custody without struggle, and the 12
gauge shotgun was secured.
Lynn, the shooter, was arrested
and charged with two counts of as-
sault with a deadly weapon with in-
tent to kill.
The suspect was placed in the Pitt
County Detention Center under
$10,000 secured bond.

Holidays should
be a time to
reflect on
but how far have
we come to
reaching Martin
Luther King Jrs
Yesterday we had a day off because it was Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jrs birthday. How did you celebrate? Did you
sleep late? Go to a movie? Catch up on coursework because
you're already behind?
Sure, why not It's a holiday - just like any other, right?
We at TEC don't think so. There are no other official federal
holidays that celebrate the birth and life of an African Ameri-
can. So, it is important to reflect on this man's accomplish-
ments and ultimately, what he died for.
We all know about King's work for civil rights during the
'60s. We know about his march on Washington. We know
that he preached nonviolent solutions to America's racial prob-
lems. And, we know that he died, ironically, at the hands ox a
violent man. Yet, his legacy has lived on.
Or has it?
Taking a look at the state of America today, we have to
ask ourselves are we living up to King's legacy and do we
even understand it?
America is the most violent nation in the Western world.
Private citizens want to carry guns because they seem to
have little confidence in police departments. Judicial systems
across the country are implementing, or have implemented,
capital punishment There is little time taken to look at let
alone, to solve the problems that cause the crimes.
But the violence doesn't stop there. Children are walk-
ing around elementary school yards toting guns, and drive-by
shootings have become a walk of life for some kids who know
to be in their homes before dark or to duck under cover as
soon, as they hear the first gun blast
When we look at America's racial problem, the problem
that was supposed to be solved by integration, that was sup-
posed to have been buried in the '60s, it is easy to see that it
was not
Late last year, two African Americans were killed in
Fayetteville, N.C. by white supremacists, simply because of
the color of their skin. What is even more alarming is the fact
that the attackers were in the U.S. Army at Fort Bragg. They
are supposed to defend all Americans - white, African Ameri-
can, Native American, whoever � from foreign enemies. It's
a scary thought when members of the nation's military have
this sort of mentality roaming around in their heads.
On an overall basis, look at the great divide between the
races after the too much publicized OJ. Simpson trial ver-
dict No one can deny that the barriers between whites and
African Americans still exist The images of an overwhelming
majority of African Americans rejoicing and whites denounc-
ing the verdict tells the story.
Now, even the internet is being used to spread hate far
and wide, possibly on a daily basis, as demonstrated by re-
cent incidents that surfaced at UNC-Chapel Hill and Brown
So have we really come that far from King's days? Have
we really embraced the ideals he fought and died for? Yes,
African Americans have gained opportunities because of the
Civil Rights movement and more whites have learned about
the accomplishments of African Americans. Even so, as inci-
dent upon incident of open violence and racial intolerance fill
our airwaves and television and computer screens, we have
to admit we have a long way to go.
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor,
It has been fifty years since the
dropping of the atomic bombs on Japa-
nese cities. Earlier this year, there was
much controversy about the Enola
Gay exhibit at the Smithsonian. The
reason for the controversy is that
documentation has been discovered
by historians that indicates the United
States bombed Hiroshima and
Nagasaki after knowing that the Japa-
nese were willing to surrender. Fur-
ther evidence is that this was done to
intimidate the Russians and show
them the terrible destruction wrought
by nuclear weapons.
There is nothing surprising about
this to me. It corresponds nicely with
the fact that the United States and
Let's remember
every other capitalist nation on earth
invaded Russia after the Bolshevik
revolution to destroy the incipient rise
of socialism and the threat that posed
to the wealth and power of the ruling
class in every capitalist country.
Also, it corresponds with the
atrocities committed by the United
States, either directly or through
proxies, in Vietnam, Guatemala, El
Salvador, Angola, Mozambique,
Chile, Indonesia and East Timor. This
tremendous carnage, involving the
violent deaths of millions of people
and the starvation deaths of millions
more, was done to stop the spread of
socialism and ensure corporate ac-
cess to cheap labor and natural re-

If you're thinking about looking
for a permanent job ;n the near fu-
ture, there's bad news and more bad
news. First, there are no jobs to be
found, and second, those that do ex-
ist require more experience than you
can ever possibly have.
Everyone warned me that
searching for a full time job would
be a long, tedious and depressing
task, but I never dreamed things
would seem so bleak.
My quest for employment began
last September. "I won't apply for po-
sitions I know I'm not qualified for

Weeks passed. Eventually months
passed and still no phone calls. "But
just think what great experience

Coursework was put on the
backburner for work experience.

completed master's degree, five
months of job searching, lots of ex-
perience and still no job.

can of tuna you are reminded that
you need to find a job, as if that never
crossed your mind. "Yes, mom, I am
content eating oodles of noodles ev-
ery night and listening to my neigh-
bor fornicate at 3 a.m. as my sole
form of entertainment"
They continue to tell me not to
give up, that the right job will come
along in due time -1 have the expe-
rience, you know.
What it seems that I am lacking,
after three years employment at The
East Carolinian, is "real world expe-
rience The last time I checked, I was
living in the real world. If college
does not constitute the real world,
why do our grades matter? Heck, I
could've broadened my horizons by
sitting on the top of Jockey's Ridge.
Real world experience is my
greatest gripe. If 65 students work-
ing together, without the help on
an "adult" to produce a newspaper
twice a week is not real experience,
then I am not sure what is. At
7!EC,we are responsible for what we
print just like any other business is.
The employees don't just appear
here. They are hired and fired just
like any other employees. If an ad is
screwed up, we are required to sat-
isfy the customer. But while TEC
exists, just like any other business,
we are not considered the real world.
It's funny what people think is real
experience. Would I have had just
as good a chance of getting an in-
terview if I had been flipping
burgers the past three years? It's
beginning to look that way.
Well, just when things were be-
ginning to look real bad I got a
phone call. Someone wants to inter-
view me. So now the anxiety builds
up. A good night's sleep is out of
the question. I'll be interviewing in
my head all night long. When the
big moment finally arrives, I'll for-
get all that I had rehearsed. And
when they ask me what kind of ex-
perience I have had, I'll just calmly
reply "I've been working in the land

Now that our fabulous football
season has come to a close and our
chaotic weekends are vacant at least
during the daylight hours, those of you
that have some spare time should find
some interest in Greenville's volunteer
organizations. Those groups like the
Pitt County Humane Society, Habitat
for Humanity, REAL Crisis, Big Broth-
ers & Big Sisters, Special Olympics and
the American Cancer Society are just
a few of the many volunteer associa-
tions in Greenville and Pitt County that
need your support
Besides the true feeling of accom-
plishment, what other ways can you,

the development of Pitt County and
the city of Greenviile, which you have

than by giving your time and energy
for the improvement of our fine Emer-
ald City.

By volunteering not only are you
making Greenville a better place to
live but you are also making eastern
North Carolina a better place. By help-
ing the community, the community
will in return help you. These services
that are functioning today may not be
in existence in the next century with-
out the your involvement and support
Besides the thousands of previous
volunteers that helped make Habitat
or the Humane Society flourish, your
interest and dedication will pay off.
Get involved today. Why wait?
Because your neighbors or your
friends are too busy does not mean
that you are not It only takes a few
minutes to pick up the phone or the
yellow pages to find out what service
would be good for you. Here is what
you should know: when does this ser-
vice meet where does it meet what
does the program offer to the com-
munity and more importantly when
can you get started?
Spring is just around the corner,
and in between the trips to the beach
can be those trips to your local social
service organizations. Because not
only your city, but your world needs
your assistance.
The idea of several hundred
thousand Japanese dying, and thou-

Color explodes for spring
Fashion '96
Sarah Wahlert
Staff Wrttor
Spring has officially sprung!
What? But it's January you say? Well
not according to designers like Donna
Karan and .�aac Mizrahi. The fashion
gods have spoken and I'm here to tell
you what you can expect to see people
wearing this springtime and summer.
Color, color and more color! Even
Calvin Klein abandoned his traditional
use of neutrals to enter this new level
of fashion. Names like apricot, water-
melon and kiwi took the place of the
usual orange, red, and green.
Pastels are back in full force.
Even business suits were shown in
colors like powder-pink and baby blue.
Shiny fabrics like satins and metallics
were still around and had also been
revived with shades of pastels. One
style that carried over was the animal
print, faux coverings like snake or
Altogether, clothing was well-tai-
lored and had a softer image. Leather
was even more colorful and also sub-
tly shaped. Non-threatening fuzzy
materials like angora and mohair were
abundant. Hemlines dropped to the
ankle except for peacoats and
trenchcoats, which fell just above the
knee. Chanel surprisingly introduced
khakis to its distinguished line fur-
thering the theme of "relaxed chic
according to highly acclaimed de-
signer Karl Lagerfeld.
Minimalism was
a popular term
thrown around by
lots of designers
and fashion maga-
zines as well. Sim-
plicity really came
through with the
clear shapes,
strong colors,
and crisp lines
those of the
sleeveless shift
dresses which were
first popular in the '60s. The
simple, plain white dress was newly
interpreted by almost every designer.
Beautifully-flowing evening gowns
were either strapless or had high neck-
lines like those of the shift dresses.
Continuing trends from last year,
besides the animal prints, included
hiphuggers (pants worn around the
hips instead of the waist), and mid-
riff-style tops to show off the stom-
ach. Piping (colored stripes around
the edges of a design) was also added
to the hip list
For the more daring, obviously-
clashing prints were also marched
down the runway. Different colors and
patterns were worn together for many
of the shows. Lace was portrayed
as outerwear, especially by de-
signer Helmut Lang, who
sent his models down the
runway wearing see-
through lace tops and
Accessories follow

renomenon, but char-

Historian discusses Ellison
Dale Williamson
Senior Writer
In an effort to allow the expres-
sion of fresh ideas and encourage pro-
gressive discussion on complex issues,
the English Department Graduate
Colloquium Committee brings Gre-
gory Robinson to ECU. Robinson, who
is the assistant editor for the Ency-
clopedia of African American Culture
and History, will give a lecture en-
tided "Invisible Politics: Ralph Ellison
on Black American Culture" on
Wednesday, Jan. 17.
Since earning his MA in history
at New York University, Robinson has
done extensive work with Post-World
War II intellectuals and race. His lec-
ture will be a spin-off from this re-
search and will focus on Ralph Ellison,
who is a major figure within his re-
search. "Many people think only of
Invisible Man when they think of
Ellison, if they think of him at all
Robinson said. "But he is one of the
most respected intellectuals in the
field of Black literature and culture
One of Ellison's major beliefs was
that blacks, despite separation from
mainstream American society and
politics, share a common culture, a
common culture that makes the black
experience a complex and rich one.
As a result of his cultural theory,
Ellison called for, according to
Robinson, "an inte-
grated, pluralistic
society Still,
Ellison did not con-
sider assimilation to
be the answer.
While blacks may
very much be at-
tached to the Ameri-
can mentality,
Ellison stressed that
they are very much
their own unique
cultural group.
Since Robinson
is a historian as op-
posed to a professor
of literature, he
brings an intriguing
perspective to a lit-
erary figure who is
often studied in En-
glish courses. "A lit-
erature person is
interested in discussing his texts and
his artistic goals Robinson pointed
out "As an historian, my interest is in
viewing Ellison's thought in its inter-
action with the thought of other in-
tellectuals working on the problem of
race relations and on the events to
which all of them are reacting
As a result of his extensive work
with the Encyclopedia of African

Subtle Ford shines in Sabrina
Dale Williamson
oemor writer
Every good critic should admit his
or her own biases before critiquing any
sulject Being an exceptional critic, I
now admit my own personal subject
posit! m: I am a Harrison Ford junkie.
I see every movie he makes not
once but three times. I am one of the
few pr ople who defends his performance
in Mosquito Coast. I've had dreams
about meeting him. I even have a shrine
erected in honor of him in my bedroom,
but I don't want to reveal too much
about that As far as I'm concerned,
Harrison Ford should be frozen in
carbonite so future generations can bask
in his greatness.
To sum up, I think Harrison Ford
is a really good actor.
Having gotten that out of my sys-
tem, I now turn to Ford's latest film,
Sabrina. Sabrina is a remake of a Billy
Wilder film starring Humphrey Bogart
as Linus Larrabee, William Holden as
his younger brother David, and Audrey
Hepburn as the title character Sabrina.
Any attempt at remaking a film that is
considered a classic by many is tough
enough, but to follow in the footsteps
of Bogart Holden and Hepburn is sui-
However, Sydney Pollock's cast
holds its own and makes Sabrina a
modern fairy tale that may be hard to
swallow at points but leaves an overall
pleasant taste.
Pollock's Sabrina is the story of a
chauffeur's daughter (Julia Ormond)
who, while growing up with the overly-
wealthy Larabees, has fallen in love with
the brash younger brother, David (Greg
Kinnear). After spending some time
working in Paris, Sabrina returns to
America with enough self-confidence
and polish to act on her crush and suc-
ceed in the attempt David Larrabee is

of a major business deal, since David's

Aglio E Olio
responsible older brother Linus
(Harrison Ford) attempts to woo
Sabrina away from David. It works, but
Linus is surprised to find that he doesn't
have to try and act like he's interested
in Sabrina. She's an attractive and fash-
ionable young woman with a sense of
humor and a natural ability to get un-
der his skin. When Linus Larrabee falls,
he falls hard.
The overall storyline is engaging
enough, even though it does follow a
fairly standard structure seen countless
times in other romantic comedies. Still,
it's Pollock's sense of pacing, the actors'
comic timing and the film's classy intel-
ligence that make Sabrina a worthy
alternative to Ace Ventura. Even scenes
that may get tiresome and seem need-
less (such as the lengthy scenes in
France) have an entrancing effect While
Sabrina's French adventure may feel like
an MTV video at points, Pollock's cin-
ematic eye does justice to the European

though the album lacks that certain
spunk that places an artist over the
top. it produces a strong vibe and
various texture that stretches out
more musically than vocally. That is
the part that most upset me. His
voice doesn't live up to his heavier
grooves, whereas in the first song.
"Century his voice is a perfect
match. Although th? album catches
a broad range of styles, some people

When listening to this album, be
sure not to have your mind made up
before the music has been played. It
seems sacrilegious due to the title,
but don't judge a book by its cover.
Although Marc Stowe has not yet
been critically acclaimed, a title such
as this one is sure to catch the eye
of the media. The only question is
how the people will see him. Will they
see him as an artist who is true to
himself or some premadonna who

just wants the headlines?
With Mitch Mills, brother of
Mike Mills, playing bass on this
record, it is not too hard to see that
Stowe knows a few names on the in-
side. I guess it's like they say. 'It's
not what you know it's who you
Stowe's style varies from the
present day roots level to the depths
of Al Jourgenson's sonic guitar style
that can be heard on the third track.

hard by acoustic melodies, the album,
if released on a major label, should
do well.
I can really see some talent and
a future in the music business for the
Stowes. I truly believe that if you. as
an artist, stay true to the music that
you love to do, it will all work out in
the end. You just can't give up. Judg-
ing by how quickly Marc got a band
together and recorded his own record
after the end of his first band, it looks
like giving up is out of the question.

(Mike I).) on drums. But unlike the
jazzy, funky instrumental that have
been the focus of most of their mu-
sical output on those previous re-
leases. Aglio E Olio is hard, fast and
in your face.
The Beasties have included a
number of hardcore tracks on their
last couple of albums such as
"Tough Guy" and "Heart Attack
Man" on Communication, or
"Time For Livin " on Check Your
Head. And just as those tracks have
shown an improvement over the
punk of Some Old Bullshit, the over-
all quality of instrumentation and
arrangement on Aglio E Olio proves
to be the best hardcore the Beasties
have yet produced. It is obvious to
any Beasties fan that these guys
have been working on all aspects of
their musicianship, from their play-
ing to their singing.
Adrock has improved more than
anyone, though. Back on the Check
Your Head tour, he could be seen

I can understand this and don't
slight AMC for it Ted Turner pretty
much owns the world, thus making
it difficult to latch on to some good
movies he doesn't already have
locked away. But I shouldn't be slan-
derous to Mr. Turner, since it is his
megalomaniacal vices that bring us
such entertainment goodies as The
Maltese Falcon, unedited, with no
commercials, and letterboxed! Allow
me to pause while I wipe the saliva
from my chin. There, better.
Original movie trailers can also
be seen between films, which are usu-
ally a hoot Also, TCM is showing re-
ally old films made before the instal-
lation of the Hayes Code (the ratings
system that preceded the letter codes
we use now) that show a little of
Hollywood's ugly side. Unpolished,
racy and usually racist, these films
nevertheless deserve to be viewed
and learned from, and Turner is giv-
ing them a shot
The only downside to TCM is
that there is no movie listing for the
month in your friend, the cable
guide. Day-by-day listings, yes, but
the monthly guide, like all of the
other movie networks, would be su-
per. That way I can catch the amaz-
ing My Favorite Year uncut and
letterboxed again. On to VH-1.
Why Video Hits One (VH-1), you
might ask, when we already have
MTV? Well, when does MTV show vid-
eos anymore? Every time I turn it on,
it's "The Real World: Cleveland
"Singled Out" or something else an-
noying (I'm not counting MTV's ani-
mated programming - that's mostly
good). That is what VH-1 is for. VH-1
has a fashion show and a movie show
and that's it All other programming
is music-related. Also, if you'd like to
catch a video made before 30 seconds
ago, VH-1 is the place to be. Hell,
they're showing "The Best of Ameri-
can Bandstand" right now, and that
alone is worth the cost of admission.
Downside? VH-1 is still the home
of Michael Bolton and Kenny G� the
Barry Manilows of their time. Ugh!
Comedy Central (COM)! Yay!
Now I can watch "Mystery Science
Theater 3000 Ah, well, it's been
canceled by the network. This is the
last season of new episodes. Oh, too
Urn, well, I can still watch "Kids
in the Hall" and "Monty Python
Wait They alternate those. They're
showing "Benny Hill now. Ugh!
Urn, "Politically Incorrect with
Bill Mahr?" Another network is try-
ing to lure Mahr away with much
money and his own talk show.
Well, hell, what does COM have?
That really funny sketch comedy
show, "Exit 57?" Sure, when you can
find it
My point here? Some really good
shows, somewhere lost in a sea of
monotonous one-note stand-up comic
The Food Channel (FOOD). Let
me just open the cable guide to a
random page and read you a list of
Food Channel programming. "Food
News & Views "How to Boil Water
"Tamales This reads like a bizarre
joke! You tune into HBO because yon
like to watch movies. You tune into
The Food Channel because you like
to watch food?
That's right this thing is food,
24-7! Oh, come on! This one's best
left like the Fitness Channel: pro-
gramming that seeps into a regular
cable channel for two or so hours at
a time. At least QVC has some sort
of twisted entertainment value to
insomniacs, drug users and aspiring
TV whores.
Last but not least, I give you the
Cartoon Network (TOON), the true
gem in this crown of semi-precious
stones and paste. Parents everywhere!
Your children now have something to
watch any time of the day!
Students! Rejoice in your favor-
ite shows from childhood! Remember
"Space Ghost?" Not only can you see
his original cartoons, but also the al-
most-too-funny-to-be-legal "Space
Ghost Coast-toCoast the big guy's
own talk show on Friday and Satur-
day nights (worthy of its own review,
soon). Not to mention new cartoons,
some of which are really, really funny.
If any of you get a chance to see a
"Power Puff Girls" cartoon, or any-
thing involving Dexter, the kid scien-
tist stop what you're doing (unless
it's CPR on someone) and watch,
watch, watch!
And there you have it - my picks
for entertaining viewing. All of these
were �ood choices for the cable gods,
with the one exception.
Why the Food Channel? What
about the fx channel? That would be
an amazing replacement for that Food
thing. Where else can you watch Rob-
ert Urich in "Vega$" on Saturday
nights? Ah, TV Whore paradise!
And Comedy Central is just dig-
ging their own grave. If they don't
watch out, they'll have to lie in it

ham-fisted dictatorship, where even
things as innocuous as "A Drop in the
Bucket" or the TEC comics page
would be treasonous.
And as stupid as the entertain-
ment industry seems determined to
think the public is, there's still some
stuff out there that makes me smile.
The fact that "The Simpsons" is still
on the air, for example, brings me joy.
The fact that its ratings are still high,
and that it's apparently being enjoyed
by many of the people it satirizes on
a weekly basis, also gives me a vicious

ness of "The Tick Children's televi-

when I was a kid.
But television as a whole is
smarter. TV dramas like "ER" and
"Homicide" are breaking new ground
all the time, and television has finally
given the world a good sci-fi series in
"The X-Files Much as 1 complain
about the insipid likes of "Family
Matters" (that lousy Erkle show), it's
swiftly becoming a rarity.
Likewise, while I bitch endlessly
(and at length) about the current state
of rock, it's still better than it was at
the end of the '80s. Much as I may
hate Hootie and the Blowfish, I'd still
rather listen to them than Tiffany or
The problem, I think, is that stuff
still isn't as good as it could be. So
when 1 see something that could be

Thrilling victory for
men's basketball
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
The race for the number one spot
in the CAA couldn't be more interest-
ing After ECU's thrilling victory over
VCU, the Pirates are quickly moving
toward the top.
VCU came into the game in first
place with a 3-0 record in the CAA,
while ECU had a 1-1 record. However,
those records changed after ECU
downed VCU 73-72 in one of the most
exciting games of the year.
The Pirates started off the first
half poorly, shooting only .407 com-
pared to VCU's .682. Sloppy passes and
bad shot selections hurt ECU in the
first half. Coach Joe Dooley was vis-
ibly upset with the way his players were
playing in the beginning, but eventu-
ally the Pirates began to settle down
and make better shots.
"There were several times we
could have lost our poise Dooley said.
"It never seemed like we could get over
the hump
VCU proved to be tough down low.
They were not allowing ECU to get
inside and get points in the paint
Jonathan Kerner, ECU's 6-11 forward,
got only six points in the first half.
ECU was sparked by Tim Basham
and his three consecutive three point-
ers in a row. It was 20-21 after a three
point shot by Basham in which he was
fouled. He did not make the free throw
but on the next trip down Basham
nailed another three. But he wasn't
finished yet Basham hit another three
and put the Pirates ahead 26-23. VCU
Head Coach Sonny Smith called a time-
out seeing that his players were strug-
gling to stop Basham's threes.
"I came out and

.Parham and
Basham led the scor-

i points respectively.
The second half
would prove to be all
ECU. Many players
who were virtually
silent in the first half
came out in the sec-
ond half and made
some key shots.
However, the
Rams did not make
it easy for the Pi-
rates. Bernard
Hopkins, a 6-7, 240
pound forward for
VCU, gave the Pi-
rates a lot of prob-
lems for ECU.
Hopkins contrib-
uted 10 points in the
first half, but added
another 14 in the
second half. He was
virtually unstoppable in the second
half. Hopkins leads the league in re-
bounding (10.6 rpg).
But ECU's answer to Hopkins was
Kerner. Kerner exploded in the second
half for 13 points and added another

After a brief visit with Camby's
doctors yesterday, Calipari said a
heart problem had been ruled out in
the player's collapse. Camby had
been taking cough medicine to fight
an illness and felt light-headed before
collapsing, Calipari said.
Camby collapsed in a hallway
outside the locker room shortly be-
fore Massachusetts' 65-52 victory

His teammates woke up yester-
day knowing no game could top the

Camby was accompanied to the

night in a nearby hotel. The 21-year-
old Camby underwent more tests yes-

Inus Norville replaced Camby in

The Lady Pirate basketball team was on the road
this weekend for two CAA games. ECU first headed to
George Mason and then onto American.
Friday's game against GMU's Lady Patriots, in
Fairfax, Va. proved to be a big disappointment for the
Lady Pirates. ECU shot only .308 in the first half and
was 0-3 in three point attempts. They did reach above
the .500 mark with free throws shooting .556 which was
better than GMU who only shot .375 from the line.
The Lady Patriots took a commanding 36-21 lead at
ECU's field goal percentage went up slightly in the
second half to .400 but it wasn't enough to overcome the
play of GMU. ECU lost the battle 73-60 and dropped their
conference record to 1-2.
Leading scorers for the night were Tomekia
Blackmon with 16 points, Justine Allpress with 10 and
Tracey Kelley with nine.
The Lady Pirates then traveled to Washington, D.C.
to take on the Lady Eagles of American University. Try-
ing to rebound from Friday's loss to GMU, ECU attempted :
to avenge the loss, but they still came up short 78-52.
ECU shot better in the first half than in Friday's;
game. The Lady Pirates shct .385 in the first half andi
shot an impressive .857 from the free throw line. How-
ever, ECU still trailed at half-time 35-26.
American outscored ECU in the second half 26-43
in the Lady Pirate's third conference loss of the season. P
The Pirates were plagued by 26 turnovers and commit-
ted 25 personal fouls.
Danielle Charelsworth led the scoring drive withL
15 points, Allpress added 12 and Blackmon chipped ini
nine for the night
The Lady Pirates (5-7, 1-3 CAA) will prepare this:

SID-ECU senior middle hitter
Tara Venn has been ranked 11th
in individual blocking (1.58 total
blocks per game) in the final NCAA
volleyball statistics.She also ranked
first in the final CAA standings.
"Prior to the season we moved
Tara to the middle because of her
quickness and jumping ability, said
ECU Head Volleyball Coach Kim
Walker. "She neutralizes many of the
opposing middle hitters, even when
at 5-11 she might be giving up two or
three inches. She's done a good job
ECU's 19 win campaign in 1995
marked the squad's highest win total
since 1982 and their 19-18 overall
record was their first winning sea-
son since 1989.
"It's great to finally have a
winning season Venn said. "We
seniors can hold our heads high
and be proud of our record and
what we have accomplished.
Cowboys, Steelers to play in Super Bowl
Only one franchise has won five
Super Bowls. Another will equal that
feat on Jan. 28 at Tempe, Ariz.
The Dallas Cowboys are 11
12-point favorites to do it and extend
the NFC's winning string to an incred-
ible 12 in the big game. The AFC
champion Pittsburgh Steelers beat
Dallas twice in Super Bowls in going
4-0 in the 1970s and 1980.
Here we go again.
"This is what you play the game
for Steelers safety Darren Perry said,
"The excitement it's almost as if it's
not really happening
It's happening, Darren, for the
Steelers, who defeated Indianapolis
20-16 Sunday. And for the Cowboys,
38-27 victors over Green Bay.
"We are happy to get there, de-
spite the negativity we've endured this
year Cowboys cornerback Deion
Sanders said. "This team is good, re-
ally good, and the way we stuck to-
gether is a credit to each of us
Dallas will appear in a record
eighth Super Bowl. It won in 1992
and '93, then last year saw the San
Francisco 49ers reach that fifth su-
per victory first.
It will be the Super Bowl debut
for Barry Switzer, who replaced Jimmy
Johnson last season after Johnson and
team owner Jerry Jones feuded and
Switzer won three college foot-
ball championships at Oklahoma. The
NFC title certainly helped vindicate
Switzer. who often is maligned for his
laid-back approach and offbeat deci-

Switzer brings with him the
league's most balanced attack, with
stars Troy Aikman throwing, Emmitt

their victorious run on campus.
Among ECU'S 30 flag football
officials were five who received the
opportunity to work the tourney. The
national event brought together 110
officials from across the nation rep-
resenting 47 institutions.
These individuals were selected
for outstanding performance either
on their campus or from a regional
tournament. Top honors from the
ECU officials were taken by Russell
Duvall and George Hollen who were
recognized as All-Americans designat-
ing their selection as being among
the best 20 officials in the tourney.
Hollen was also chosen to officiate
the Women's championship game
while Duvall worked the Open divi-
sion, generally considered the high-
est level of play, on the last day.
Each of them also received the
opportunity to work an exhibition
game on the floor of the Superdome
prior to the Sugar Bowl game on
New Year's eve. Other officials work-
ing the event included Steven
Roberson, Greg Laurie (the first
freshman ever selected from ECU)
and Chris Nunn.
In addition. Allison Kemp served
as an administrative assistant with the
officials for the tourney. Each of these
six officials had previously worked a
regional tournament in November,
either in North Carolina or Georgia.
The selection of Duvall and
Hollen as All-Americans represented
the sixth and seventh officials to re-
ceive this honor since 1989. Also
among this group is Brian Weingartz,
who did not make the trip this year
but continues to officiate at ECU.

pated in this year's event!

shots in the lane that was needed to
keep ECU in the game.
"You can't even describe the way
he (Kerner) played the second half
Parham said. "The second half we
wanted to emphasize getting the ball
inside and when Jonathan got the ball
he just went to work
"I thought I could step it up in
the second half Kerner said. "We
knew we had weight and height to bang
it down low with them and I think we
did a pretty good of that"
All through the second half ECU
kept gaining momentum, while the
Rams slowly began to fall apart, but
the game still remained close.
After a Meadows' steal and jumper
VCU's lead was cut to 6S-69 with 2:30
remaining in the game.
There were 19 lead changes dur-
ing the game, but the most important
lead would be had by ECU after a
Kerner field goal with 2:10 left That
shot would give ECU the lead for good.
Eleven times during the game the score
was tied, but ECU stayed in the game
and Dooley was proud of his players
for hanging in there.
"They kept making big baskets
Dooley stated. "You know we're down
one, we cut it to one, finally they get a
three-point play and get the lead back
to four. Instead of panicking we kept
getting our offensive poise back and
kept executing
The Pirates biggest lead in the last
few minutes of play came off a Kerner
free throw with 1:18 left and a pair of
Deron Rippey free throws with 34.6
seconds left The lead now was 7369.
The Rams answered with a Patrick
Lee three pointer with 25.1 seconds
left Smith then used his final time out
"We had called a set play for three,
knowing we wouldn't have time for two
possessions Smith said. "And then we
end up getting a three wide open with
nobody under the basket and Patrick
takes it"
After the time-out the ECU play-
ers and fans got a scare after Basham
tried to throw a full court pass down
to Meadows and turned it over to VCU.
Lee came down again and fired up
another three but came up emptied
ECU won the battle 73-72, and
Dooley knew his players weren't go-
ing to back down even in the final
"That's something we've ad-
dressed in practice, take on people and
that's what we try to do Dooley said.
Basham ended the night with 14
points, while Parham added 12 and
Meadows contributed nine points.
"This is a very big win because
we will start to gain respect because
people still have doubts about us and
it gives us a lot of confidence that we
can play with anybody Meadows said.
ECU shot .481 for the game in
field goals while VCU show 587. The
Pirates did take the edge on free throw
shots shooting 16-22 for .727, while
VCU shot 14-27 for .519.
VCU is now tied with UNC-W for
first place both with a 3-1 record. ECU
is tied with American and Old Domin-
ion for second place all with 2-1
ECU will be on the road tonight
against American in what will prove to
be a key match up to move ahead in
