New budget niay mean pay raises
Amy L. Royster
Assistant News Editor
After a summer of over-drawn
debate, the legislature finally de-
cided on a budget for the UNC sys-
tem that includes more money for
ECU than has been allocated in re-
The budget includes a four and
one half percent salary increase for
teachers across the UNC system.
This increase will be allocated based
on merit. For ECU, there will be an-
other one half of one percent pay
increase for outstanding faculty.
According to Richard Brown,
Vice Chancellor of Business Affairs,
the one half of one percent addi-
tional increase will effect only 25
percent of ECU's faculty.
The legislature included $9 mil-
lion in planning money for new
buildings at a handful of universi-
ties. Brown said that FXU will re-
ceive $1 million of the planning
money which will be used specifi-
cally for new science and technol-
"We have a dire need for addi-
tional laboratory space in the chem-
istry and biology labs especially
Brown said. "We just received fund-
ing and we will advertise for an ar-
According to Brown, compara-
tive studies of funding levels at in-
stitutions similar to ECU showed
that ECU was $3.1 million less well
funded on an annual basis. Due to
this lack of funding, the legislature
will allow ECU to spend $1.7 mil-
lion that in previous years were man-
dated as savings.
"Normally, we give back 2 per-
cent of appropriations to savings
Brown said. "Now where we will ben-
efit is that this money will be used
towards computer technology and
Brown said that lack of fund-
ing for ECU stems from the univer-
sities enrollment expansion which
came during a decade when the leg-
islature was not prepared to fund the
expansion. Other universities which
were cited as underfunded and given
one-time allocations by the legisla-
ture are UNC-Charlotte, UNC-
Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington and

Hannah Barabasz, Taffy Tyler,

erald Isle for the'day, thinking that
it would be a nice break from

terrupted when they noticed that
two young boys who had been play-

getting back to shore.

drying off. We were tired ourselves,

back in than we thought it was

Barabasz added that they had
seen the boys playing out in the
surf, but didn't see any cause for
concern at first, since they were
both swimming well. But she had
noticed that they were both young,
and didn't seem to have anyone
"I didn't find out their names.
They were probably eight and ten-
fairly young, but old enough to be
able to swim Barabasz said.
The boys had been shouting
and playing so much that when
they began to call for help, the
three students thought at first they
might have been just playing a joke,
but then realized the kids were in
"Scott noticed that they were
really in distress and needed help
Barabasz said, adding that the boys
must have panicked when they sud-
denly realized their predicament.
"They just realized that they
weren't going to be able to get back
in. They were swimming fine, but
they were past the point where the
waves were helping them get in
The three of them swam back
out into the water. Tyler went to
the closer boy and began helping
him get in to shore. Barabasz said
that he was almost to the point
where he could touch bottom, and

Apex woman suspected in Sigma Chi Fire
A former acquaintance of a Sigma Chi fraternity member has been
charged with intentionally setting the June 8 fire at the fraternity house
near UNC-Chapel Hill. Erika Lee Biemer, 19, of Apex was indicted Tuesday
on charges of first degree arson, first-degree burglary and damage to prop-
erty, Chapel Hill police said.
Biemer was expected to turn herself in Wednesday and be formerly
charges. The suspect use to attend N.C. State University, although she is
not registered for fall semester, the registrar's office said.
Police could not comment on the possible motive for the fire. Beimer's
attorney, William D. Young IV, could not be reached.
Director of Greek Affairs Ron Binder said he could not believe that
someone would intentionally set the fire, especially after the May 12 Phi
Gamma Delta fraternity house fire that killed five UNC students.
"This is a very scary proposition that someone would do this he said.

"It makes us less competitive with
states that do offer insurance but we
are on par with other UNC system
schools Brown said.
According to administrative official
Andrea Harrel of the division of research
and graduate studies at ECU, the $1.7
million appropriated for tuition reduc-
tions for graduate students translates
into little for ECU's graduate students.
"The only thing that will effect
graduate students will be three more
out-of-state tuition waivers for graduate
students Harrel said.
This brings the number of gradu-
ate students receiving out-of-state tu-
ition waivers at ECU to 63.
There will also be no money in-
cluded in the capital budget to fund the
expansion of Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
ECU asked for $6 million from the leg-
islature after raising $12 million pri-
vately. Last Thurs N.C. Representative
Henry Aldridge said that ECU would
receive $3 million for the expansion

said Speaker of the House, Harold
Brubaker had committed to another $3
million in January.

million repair and renovation fund for

eral renovations to buildings on cam-

HKe five minutes later, but I know
it Was probably only a minute, and
w4 just kept passing the boy be-
tween us Barabasz said.
The two tried different meth-
ods of helping the boy, such as try-
ing to put him on their backs and
let him ride, but they didn't seem
to be making any progress.
Meanwhile, Tyler had already
reached shore with the other boy.
An older woman on the beach who
had seen what was happening of-
fered the use of a Boogie Board,
which Tyler took, and then swam
back out to help her friends. The
three of them put the boy on the
board and with all of them push-
ing and pulling on it, finally were
able to get to shore. Barabasz esti-
mates that it took a half-hour to get
the boy to shore.
After reaching safety, the three
students found out from the boys
that they were at the beach with
an older brother of one of the boys,
and walked down the beach to con-
front him. Barabasz said that the
older brother-who she estimated to
be seventeen or eighteen-was play-
ing Frisbee with some friends and
didn't seem to realize the serious-
ness of the predicament even when
the students explained that the
boys might have drowned if not for
their help. After that, the students
decided to call it a day.
"We were going to stay all day.
but after that happened we were
mad and tired, and we all had swal-
lowed so much salt water, we de-
cided to leave and were home by
late afternoon. It kind of cut our
day short Barabasz said.
The physical aftereffects of the
rescue included nausea from the
salt water they had swallowed, but
that was gone by the next day. Fear
and uncertainty played an emo-
tional part following the events of
"We were shaky, and just
scared, because you're thinking,
God, what if we weren't there?
Would those boys down the beach
really have heard them?" Barabasz
Adding to the uncertainty they
all felt was the fact that the num-
ber of students who went that day
could have easily been one more or
one less. Barabasz said that her
boyfriend was supposed to go. but
had a change of plans, and because
of that she almost didn't go that
"You just wonder-what if my
boyfriend was there, whether that
would have helped, what if I didn't
go, would those two have been able
to get both of them in? We were
just sitting there playing mind
games-what if, what if Barabasz
None of the students who
saved the boys that day were

Barabasz said that even
though the older brother in charge
of the two boys didn't show any
remorse for his lack of responsibil-
ity or thank them for their efforts,
the two boys they rescued thanked
them again and again, and seemed
to realize they might have drowned
if not for the three students. The
feeling of having saved someone's
like was a new one to Barabasz.
"It was strange. I've never felt

wage is due to
but that still
meet the costs
In a time when the chief executive officers of some of our
leading corporations are making over 200 times the amount
of money that their average employee takes home, it seems a
bit ridiculous for Congress to be haggling over a mere 90
cents. We wonder why Congress should be the decision-maker
in this process.
When was the last time a Senator made minimum wage?
If it was about a decade ago, then he or she would have been
making about 90 cents less than minimum wage is now. That's
right, 90 cents. Ten years ago the minimum wage was a whop-
ping $3.35. Today it's gone up to unbelievably high $4.25.
That means that a minimum wage earner working 40 hours
per week for 52 weeks would bring in $8,840, before taxes.
No Christmas holiday, no Thanksgiving break and especially
no July 4th off for that lucky stiff. No sir, they would have to
work eight hours a day, five days a week to garner that fat
paycheck. They would be lucky if they could take a weekend
off once a month.
Ten years ago that same person would have made $6,698
for the year. But think about the standard of living back then.
Although it was the '80s when everything seemed to cost an
arm and a leg, it wasn't nearly as much as it is now. Reagan
was in the middle of his second term and prices were begin-
ning to skyrocket, but the financial crunch didn't come along
until Bush was in office. Seven thousand dollars would have
gone much farther at that time then $9,000 goes in 1996.
Now, a bill passed the House of Representative in May
that would raise the minimum wage another 90 cents over
the next two years to a total of $5.15 per hour. That's $10,712
a year for our hard-working friend mentioned above. Not great
by any means, but a start
What does that mean to us, the students of East Carolina
University? It affects students from the northeastern and west-
ern p?rt of the state the most because these regions have the
highest percentage of minimum wage worker, according to
the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina. The
legislation raises minimum wage from $4.25 to $5.15 an hour
in two stages. The first stage goes into effect on October 1,
1996 with a 50 cent increase. The second stage occurs on
September 1, 1997 when there will be an additional increase
of 40 cents per hour.
The Employment Security Commission estimates some
308,000 North Carolina workers will be directly impacted by
the new legislation. They represent just over 16 percent of the
state's hourly work force and about 9 percent of the overall
If you're paying for college yourself, then you already know
the harsh reality of minimum wage and how far it will get you.
If you're going to school full-time, then more than likely you
only have a part-time job, which also means you're probably
making the minimum.
Needless to say, the minimum wage isn't nearly enough
for most people to live on in this country. In fact, that 40 hour
per week worker might be classified as earning a wage that is
below poverty level.
Yet despite all of these despairing remarks, we should feel
comforted that we live in North Carolina, not only because
the cost of living here is so low in comparison to many parts
of the country. North Carolina has one of the lowest percent-
ages of hourly workers making at or below minimum wage in
the entire South.
If North Carolina had to come in last at something, we at
The East Carolinian are glad it was that

Childhood, an anachronism in the "90s
Childhood has become far too
burdensome for the American public
to bear. It is no longer good for the
country's well being. It isn't even good
for the children who are captured in
an unwholesome prolonged state of
One must remember that allow-
ing children to be free and young is
fairly new in America. One should re-
member that childhood is nothing but
an anachronistic leftover from the
original liberals. Before the so-called
enlightenment, before Rousseau, be-
fore the left-wing conspiracy of the
18th-century, the young dressed,
worked and were looked upon as
shorter adults in society.
Children existed for the purpose
of furthering our existence, but they
were made to pull their own weight
in the family. They didn't have a place
to be educated and nurtured until
they reached maturity. Adolescence,
for that matter, wasn't invented until
the early 20th century.
Children having children is be-
coming a dangerous and common
occurrence in our country. Young-
sters are having sex and using drugs
as young as 12 years old, maybe even
younger in respect to using alcohol
and drugs. The controversial movie
Kids, based on the lives of young
lower-middle class kids in the city is a
fictional illustration which mirrors
reality. Our children are running so
fast toward adulthood and crime that
in ten years we could have a national
epidemic on our hands. America's
children are losing control with no
idea what is right, wrong or decent.
Should we go back to the idea of
child labor in America? If parents are
not teaching their children responsi-
bility, then maybe a little work ethic
could help out. We are already eras-
ing the line between childhood and
adulthood whenever it suits our pur-
pose. The cost of living is on the rise,
' ����, ��-� - ,
losing control with
no idea wheels
and in order to support families to-
day both parents must work. When
little Johnnie gets off the schoolbus
at 3 p.m. (after his first week in fourth
grade) there is no one to greet him at
the door, because mom is at work until
six and a baby-sitter is too expensive.
This is a common and sad scenario
for many American kids, and loving
parents are pushed in this direction
at times. However, there must be a
better option than latchkey kids, com-
ing home to an empty house for sev-
eral hours of the day.
Hollywood has been exploiting
children for over two decades. Young
actors are put to work, taken out of
regular schools, told to work long
hours and chances are that they would
much rather go out on the playground
with their friends. Do their parents
ask them to act or force them? It is
exciting for children to play in front
of the camera, but can a five year old
really make a decision to act in a apple
juice commercial. No, his parents or
agent make the choice for him.
At the Olympics, we had 14-year-
old gymnasts on the "Women's Team
In the states, we now have plans to
try 13-year-old lawbreakers as adults.
In Congress they are considering do-
ing away with juvenile jails and

If we eliminated the entire notion
of caildhood we wouldn't have to
worry about children having children,
child care, or schools. Child labor
would become another "work oppor-
Of course, we could retain child-
hood as a luxury for those who could

Jonathan Swift offered in 1729:

to open our eyes wider to their needs

Attic show knocked down
frownin1 by Chapel Hill band

Last Friday night the Attic was
definitely turned on to a sound. The
only problem was that the sound
had been heard so many times be-
fore, so many times in my life, for
Knocked Down Smilin' started
off very well. Bandmembers Martin
Godwin (lead vocals and rhythm
guitarist), Mason Pitts (bass guitar).
Bogie Bowles (drums), and Sam
Sloyd (lead guitar) came out, at-
tacked the crowd, and let everyone
know that they were serious. It was
their self-titled CD release party. It
was their long awaited event. It was
their time to shine.
Well, for the most part, they
did shine. Knocked Down Smilin'
were one of the most intense bands
to step into the Attic within the last
year. I was into the groove for the
first couple of songs. That is, until
I had questions about the Godwin's
guitar playing. Basically. Godwin

ing it down when necessary.
As the night progressed on,
Knocked Down Smilin' played a
song that sounded a little familiar.
It sounded like the old Bob Dylan
tune "Knockin' On Heavens Door
I was stunned at first. Then I
thought that they were getting
ready to make a transition and
maybe slide into "Heaven's Door
but they didn't. They just kept com-
ing up with different lyrics and rip-
ping off one of the classics.
If that wasn't enough, Godwin
insisted on asking the crowd if they
had heard the tune before. A couple
of true souls stood up and shouted
out for Dylan, others stood back as
if they had never heard the song
before. Due to the overwhelming
amount of screaming and cheering
going on, the band was unable to
hear those few people who had no-
ticed the original they were steal-
ing from. Lucky for them. The band

Carrot Top does not jest. Parking at

one day and already knows it.
He also talked about driving
around campus (looking for a place
to park, of course) and trying to find
something good on the radio. Every
station he turned to was playing a
different Hootie and the Blowfish
song. "Enough Hootie he cried. This
was a continuing gag throughout the
show, and it never failed to get laughs

Robert De Niro portraying a psychopath is not
exactly the most original casting choice of recent
years. He's made a career for himself by playing men-
tally unstable characters in such films as Taxi Driver

egotistical, self-assured sports figure is not unfajnil-
iar territory. He's shown his talent for such roles in

Psychopathic baseball nut Gil Renard (Robert De Niro) plays hardball with his hero Bobby
Rayburn (Wesley Snipes) in The Fan, a new psychological thrilier from director Tony Scott.
and Bobby Rayburn (Snipes). Renard is the epitome of
the American failure. He is a failed husband, a failed
father, and a failed businessman. The American dream
does not work for Renard. Rayburn, however, is the
American dream. He is a $40 million major league base-
ball player who uses his talents to their extremes.
Renard. who is an extremely obsessive baseball fan,
idolizes Rayburn and everything he represents. Unfor-
tunately, Renard. as it turns out, is a gun waiting to
go off. The more his life unravels, the more obsessed
he becomes with Rayburn. This obsession, of course,
eventually becomes deathly dangerous.
With all of the sports related films being released
these days, one focusing on the darker, more obses-
sive side of an American pastime would seem to be
promising, and The Fan does exhibit some very prom-
ising elements. The opening sequences, for example,
effectively establish the two main characters by juxta-
posing Renard's stressful and dreary nine-to-five life
with Rayburn's rock and roll superstar lifestyle.
Also. Renard's relationship with his son and his
obsession with baseball is handled in a disturbingly
honest manner. A scene in which Renard takes his son
to a major league baseball game unnerves through
subtlety and honesty, not through needless and graphic

Not only does it lack the momen-

The East Carolinian
from page 6
Ironically, the film loses its
drive and edge when Renard
crosses the line and becomes a
killer. From a narrative perspective,
the film logically leads us to
Rayburn confronting a crazed
Renard, but by this point the film
loses its originality and De Niro
becomes a character we've seen
countless times before.
De Niro and Snipes are both
wonderful actors who always give
professional performances no mat-
ter what role they're playing. Stay-
ing true to their talents. De Niro
and Snipes do their part to make
their characters interesting and
real. However, their performances
are distracted by Tony Scott's MTV
Scott can be a good director
when he doesn't let his flashy style
overpower a story's substance. He
wisely toned his act down for the
exciting film Crimson Tide, and he
used his quick-edit visuals to great
effect in the ultra-violent True Ro-
mance. However, his direction for
The Fan seems misguided. He fills
the screen with quick edits, glow-
ing visuals, and a constant
soundtrack (featuring music by
such acts as The Rolling Stones and
Nine Inch Nails) that would be more
appropriate for a film like Top Gun.
Scott, like Rayburn, is a rock
and roll kind of guy. Unfortunately.
The Fan is not a rock and roll kind
of movie. The film works best dur-
ing its subtle, more intimate mo-
ments and loses credibility when it
tries to speed things up. While
Scott's visuals are appealing to the
eye (the opening credit sequence is
quite interesting), his ability to
delve deeper into the substance
beneath the flashy surface seems
limited. The result: The Fan burns
out before it really gets going.
So, if you want to see De Niro
as a more complex psychopath, see
Taxi Driver. If you want to see
Snipes at his athletic best, see
White Men Can't Jump. And if you
want to see Scott at his flashy best,
see True Romance. If you want to
see a better baseball movie, you
have your pick of such films as Bull
Durham. The Natural, or Eight
Men Out at your local video store.
If you still want to see The Fan,
save yourself some cash and wait.
COWBOY from page
this Jenny girl. Hey buddy, stop
This character we are referring
to is one of the band's lead sing-
ers, Paul Sanchez, who also plays
rhythm and acoustic guitar on the
album. Other band members are
Fred LeBlanc (drums). John Tho-
mas Griffith (lead guitar), and Rob
Savoy (bass), all of whom also sing.
All of the songs are written by the
entire band. I guess they're all just
one big, happy singing and
songwriting family. How precious.
However, this smashing band
from New Orleans does have a song
that could put them on the charts,
a song called "So Sad About Me?"
It's the eighth track on the album,
and if you can manage to get that
far into the disc, you might enjoy
the tune. It's a song about finding
peace within yourself, something
that most people can relate to.
Here's a hint, guys. Maybe if you
wrote more about what you feel to
be true rather than whining all the
time, the words wouldn't seem so
far fetched or annoying.
If you want to be in a world of
your own. that's great. You can just
sit in your house complaining and
pouting all day. However, if you're
looking to make it big, you have to
connect with people, most of whom
don't care about your little prob-
lems (including me).
There's always a chance that a
curious listener might come to your
show, maybe even go the record
store and buy your album. If you
speak the truth to them, they might
stay and listen. However, if you
throw a fit, they will run away. Are
you with me?

the show was the time Carrot Top spent
talking about Betty. 1 didn't know
Betty before the show, and I still don't
know her. but apparently Betty had to
leave for a few minutes in the middle.
Carrot Top took off running down the
aisle after her. bringing the whole au-
dience to their feet to watch. Poor
Betty. When she was gone, he had all
of the people she was with switch seats
so she wouldn't know where her seat
was. When she came back, Carrot Top
said, "Betty! Betty, are you in the right
After the show, I got a chance to
talk with Carrot Top, and let me just
say, he's a really cool guy. He's not at
all stuck up. Here's a little highlight of
the mini press conference:
TEC: Is that your real hair color?
Carrot Top: Yeah, it's the real
color. Hell. I wouldn't do this to it
TEC: When does your movie come
Carrot Top: April. It's called Chair-
man of the Board, and it's really cool.
There's this guy, and his car breaks
down, and I stop to help him. And then
he dies, and I inherit his company, and
I get to invent all of these really cool
things. So go see it like 12 times.
TEC: What's up with the Rolling
Carrot Top: That was really uncool.
This guy went on the road with us for
three days, and one night I met this
girl, right? And we sort of hung out
and the next day he's asking me, So
from page 6
does that happen all the time? Being a
comedian, I bet it's easy to get laid
All we did was hang out. I mean, look
at me! Do I look like I get laid every
night? He was just looking for an angle
to write the article on, but it wasn't
cool. So 1 wrote them a letter. But all
they said was. That's what our read-
ers want to hear But they didn't have
to put me in the middle of it They
didn't print the letter though.
TEC. When you make it big in
the movies, are you going to stop tour-
Carrot Top: No! This is the best
part. When you're in the movies, you
can't get this kind of feedback It's like,
you do your scene, and youp like,
'Was that funny?' And they're like,
'Yes, it's funny But nobody laughed.
You're not allowed to laugh! You have
to be quiet. So I love doing the shows
TEG, What was your first gag?
Carrot Top: It was a little hat with
hair sticking up out of the top for my
Grandma to wear so people can see
her over the steering wheel.
TEC: What would you like to say
to everybody in Greenville?
Carrot Top: Just tell them that it
was a real pleasure to come back. I
love performing in Greenville. I appre-
ciate everybody coming out to the
show, and just tell them good luck

The next few songs range from slow

down in life and love. For example.
"Climb That Hill" is all about having to

bad relationships run rampant through-
out this album. As Petty sings in "Hope

The only happiness left on the Cl

Many may be asking how in the
name of cutbacks can ECU afford to
spend valuable dollars on a NASCAR
sponsorship. Not to fret Pirate faith-
fuls, this is just what makes the deal
so beautiful according to team man-
ager Bryan Clodfelter, a '91 ECU
"ECU does not handover one
nickel to the race team Clodfelter
said. "The way the deal works is that
ECU and Collegiate Licensing Com-
pany allow the race team to use the
ECU name and logo on the car
The race team then has the right
to use the logo on memorabilia on
things such as hats, T-shirts and die-
cast cars. A royalty is paid to the uni-
versity out of all sales of the team's
merchandise, the team is then allowed
to keep all remaining earnings to help
support the team financially.
The school is not only gaining
money from the sale of the team's
merchandise, but is also gaining valu-
able air time on nationally televised
"Every 30 seconds the logo is in
view equals into approximately
$10,000 in air time Clodfelter said.
"Six to nine million people tune into
a nationally televised race each week,
making NASCAR the largest specta-
tor sport in the country
The race team, which is based
out of High Point. N.C is fairly new
to the Busch Grandnational Circuit,
with appearances in only two other
races in Atlanta and Rockingham.
The team is anything but new to the
world of racing however.
Ritch. 23 of High Point, has been
racing since the age of eight where
he got his start in go-cart racing. He
then moved on to be crowned Na-
tional Cart Champion before testing
his skills in stock car racing. At 19,
Ritch won the Mid-Atlantic Region
championship in the NASCAR Series
When Ritch got the nod to drive
on the Busch Grandnational Circuit
he added even more experience to
the team with the addition of crew
chief Christian Lovendall. Lover ;all.

rTOP 5 CROSS COUNTRY
As the summer ends, another
cross country season begins. Tra-
ditionally not known for a strong
distance team, the Pirates, led by
men's Head Coach Mike Ford and
women's Head Coach Charles
"Choo" Justice, are slowly but
surely making a name for them-
Last season Justice's women's
team finished fourth in a highly
competitive CAA conference.
We ran well early in the sea-
son and peaked too early, which in

"We're pleased with Suzanne
Justice said. "Last season she just
got better and better as the season
went on, and we expect more of the
same this season
One of the keys to the cross
country team's success is the abil-
ity of the top five runners to run
effectively as a team.
"Early in the season we ran
well as a pack, but with some bad
timing and the im-
provement of Bellamy,
the pack broke up to-
wards the end of the
season Justice said.
In the scoring of
cross country meets,
the wins and losses are
determined by the
middle runners. This
season the Lady
Pirate's team glue will
include the outstand-
ing running of Tara
and Dava Rhodes, who

It's the start of a new season
for men's soccer and Head Coach
Will Wiberg is counting on taking
his team to the top.
The booting Pirates held their
first scrimmage on Friday and
Wiberg got the chance to see how
his players will compete in the Co-
lonial Athletic Association (CAA)
Wiberg was quick to point out
the new roster is flooding with new
players and an abundance of fresh-
man. But Wiberg was even quicker
to point out the fact that this team
will have no trouble facing up to
any team in the CAA.
The mass influx of freshman
newcomers is the result of a new
born, wide spread recruiting drive,
launched by the ECU Sports De-
"There was not much effort put
into recruiting last year Wiberg
said. "Another setback was the fact
that I wasn't hired until a few days
before last year's pre-season
This year he has been given the
opportunity to do it his way.
"This is the first year we have
brought the players in, a week be-
fore classes for training Wiberg
said. "Most days we had three field
sessions and one 45 minute weight
By the time most of us were
getting up, these players had al-
ready gone through numerous train-
ing exercises. From 6-8 a.m 11 a.n
to 12 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. This may
sound like boot camp, but this is
what it takes to put together a win I
ning team for Wiberg.
Judging from the Friday scrim
mage, strong defense, running and j
passing are strong points for this a
year's team. The emphasis is on
teamwork and effective communica- -
tion on the field.
"This team has really come to-
gether in the pre-season, and seem
to be playing for each other Wiberg'
said. j- jj
Endurance is another impres-
sive factor which this team pos-
sesses. After the full regulation time
had expired, the guys where stilf

Pirates have become a solid con-
tender in the CAA with a steady
group of five that could lead them
above and beyond expectations.
The men's team will be a much
improved squad from last year's
sixth place finish in the CAA's. Ford
will return eight runners along with
a strong freshman class.
"We're going to be young
again Ford said. "We return eight
runners and very few upperclass-

younger guys are starting to push

Welcome to HEALTH SCIENCES
Welcome to the William L Laps Health Sciences Library!
The Health Sciences Library, located in the Brody
Medical Sciences Building on ECU'S West Campus,
serves as the primary information center for stu-
dents, faculty and staff in the Division of Health
Sciences and the School of Social Work. The library
has a collection of approximately 310,000 volumes
and currently subscribes to about 1,727 journals.
The HSL has a staff of 14 Ubnrians and 27.5 sup-
port staff to serve your information needs.
Horizon - The Health
Sciences Library's Online Catalog
Horizon, the online catalog of the Health Sci-
ences Library, provides computerized access to the
book, journal, and audiovisual holdings of the li-
brary. In addition, you can search the collection of
Joyncr Library, the main academic library on ECU'S
east campus, through the Horizon catalog at the
HSL. Horizon offers many ways to find out what
the library owns. Specific items can be located us-
ing an author or title search; if you do not know the
full title of a book or journal, a keyword search can
help find the item for you. You can locate materials
by medical subject heading or by subject keyword
as well. Items in the HSL are catalogued using sub-
ject headings bom the National Library of Medicine
(Mesh) and the Library of Congress while the Joyner
collection is catalogued using subject terms from
the Library of Congress.
The Horizon catalog lets you search selected parts
of the collection as well. If you are interested only
in audiovisual materials, Horizon will let you limit
your search this way. You can also limit your search
to journals or books. Limiting your search to the
reference collection will show you the non-circu-
lating reference materials owned by the library.
Various other limits and the ability to combine sub-
jects and keywords also assist you in narrowing
down your search.
The bookmark feature available in Horizon allows
you to compile a list of items you are interested in,
and either print it out or download it to a disk for
word processing. The Horizon catalog tells you the
location of each item in the library, and indicates
whether the item is available, or its due date if it is
Horizon offers many features to make your search
for information in the Health Sciences Library suc-
cessful We encourage you to ask for assistance from
the librarians on duty, or attend a class on the use
