Across The State
HENDERSON. N.C. (AP) -
Rose's Stores Inc. officials were
optimistic about the future of
the North Carolina discount re-
tailer after a proposed merger
fell apart
Rose s chairman and chief
executive officer Ed Aanderson
said the company will make it on
its own.
The plan to merge Rose's
Stores Inc. with a Tennessee-
based discount retail chain was
to create a regional power that
could compete against national
titans like Wal-Mart.
MORCANTON, N.C. (AP) -
Less than two weeks after walk-
ing off the job in protest of work-
ing conditions and the refusal by
Case Farms to conduct labor ne-
gotiations, striking workers re-
turned to the poultry plant.
Case Farms Human Re-
sources Manager Ken Wilson
said he received a letter from
union officials which called an
end to the strike last Wednesday.
The letter from the union
gave no reason for ending the
strike, Wilson said, adding that
Case Farms entered into no
agreements or negotiations.
Across The
Country
CALIFORNIA (AP) -
Firefighters from as far away a
Alaska and Alabama battled
stubborn blazes in Northern
California as the fires came dan-
gerously close to historical
homesteader cabins and an an-
cient sequoia grove. California
fires are among the many rag-
ing across the We-t in what some
consider the worst fire season in
recent history.
WEST VIRGINIA (AP) - A
recreational area's plan to kill
Canadian geese with a controlled
hunt ended amid complaints
from animal rights advocates.
Now the hope is to scare the
birds away with a tape of geese
honking in distress. The tape will
be played daily to convince the
birds they should leave because
the area is unsafe.
Around the World
TEL AVIV. ISRAEL (AP) -
Israelis and Arabs are worrying
aloud that the peace process
Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu long criticized and
then inherited two months ago
is falling apart. For the first time
in years, politicians and Israeli
media are talking about the pos-
sibility of war with Syria.
SOUTH AFRICA (AP) -
South African police subpoe-
naed the notes of local and in-
ternational journalists last week
in a search for information on
vigilante violence in Cape Town's
ganglands. The journalists were
ordered to bring any and all ma-
terial on the recent mob slaying
of a suspected drug dealer, in-
cluding notes and film, to the At-
torney General this week.

Hurricane Fran came through
Greenville Thursday night and did
what hurricanes do best. Fran sent
everyone scurrying to the stores for
supplies that afternoon, poured rain
over Greenville, knocked power out
and uprooted more than a few trees.
In preparing for
JL. ECU Police made sure they were ready
to do their part. Director Teresa
Crocker said the police's primary role
during a storm such as Fran is that
of safety management.
"This time, we had a lot of con-
cerns about safety, hoping people
would stay inside Crocker said.
Despite the warnings of the po-
lice, Crocker said some people were
outside during the hurricane, "play-
ing in the mud
The police prepared for Fran by
making sure they had the right equip-
ment and that it was in good working
order, by calling in extra staff where
needed and making sure there were
others on call.
During the
storm the police
stayed alert to re-
spond to develop-
ments such as
trees falling
across roads and
on powerlines,
people getting in-
jured or keeping
an eye out for
other potential
problems.

After the in-

storm itself, Fri-
day morning was
a time to assess
the damage done
to campus and try
to get things back
to normal. With
classes canceled
on Friday, the re-
pair crews had the
campus to them-
selves to see what kind of havoc Fran
had wrought.
George Harrell of Facilities Ser-
vices summarized the damage on cam-
pus.
"We had roof-related damage to

said. "The School of Medicine cam-

Committee decides fate of holidays
Amy L. Royster
Assistant News Editor
Following warnings this summer
that a UNC-system wide mandate add-
ing eight days to ECI" s academic cal-
endar was coming, the time has arrived
to decide which holidays are expendable.
The mandate, initiated by L'NC-
system president C. D. Spangier. calls
for every university in the system to
maintain 150 class days per year. This
equates to 75 days per semester.
The options for complying with the
mandate are to shorten the time be-
tween the Fall and Spring semesters,
add eight days and eliminate several
state holidays.
The Calendar Committee is respon-
sible for drawing up the final version of
the 1997-1998 calendar and submitting
it to the Faculty Senate by Oct 1. The
Faculty Senate must then make a deci-
sion by Oct 15. Ultimately, Chancellor
Richard Eakin has the final approval.
According to John Crammer, an
assistant professor in the math depart-
ment and a member of the Calendar
Committee, student input is being
sought on a broad basis. Faculty of
graduate and undergraduate classes
have been asked to distribute surveys
to students which poll their opinions
on various ways to alter the calendar.
'Institutional Research gave us a
random sample of fifty classes that will
allow for student opinion Crammer
said.
State holidays the Calendar Com-
mittee is considering eliminating are
Labor Day. Martin Luther King Day and
Good Friday.
"I surveyed public schools around
the country Crammer said. "Half the
schools I looked at had Labor Day and
Martin Luther King Day. Only two of
the schools observed Good Friday
On the survey, the Calendar Com-
mittee proposes that the Fall semester
end either Dec. 18 or Dec. 19, depend-
ing on the number of days allocated for
Fall Break.
Crammer said that there are a few
changes which the committee will not
consider making.
"Graduation will not be pushed
back due to Saturday exams Crammer
said. "Also. Spring Break is off the
table
According to Crammer, in recent
years attendance from students with
seats on the Calendar Committee has
been lax. Student Government Associa-
tion (SGA) President Angela Nix holds
one seat as does another SGA repre-
sentative. Nix is scheduled to speak to
various student groups in order to glean

State, campus efforts battle unemployment
Elizabeth Dole makes campaign stop at The University of Knoxville
Republican supporters of all ages filled a high school gym near
the university to cheer on Elizabeth Dole.
Dole rallied the crowd with a campaign speech which covered is-
,sues from balancing the budget to tax cuts to social security and de-
fense.
Strolling around in a lime-green suit, Dole began her speech with
remarks directed toward Michelle Marciniak, the former UT basketball
player who won a gold medal as part of the U. S. women's team in the
Summer Olympics.
Foreign university students left stranded by hurricane
More than a dozen students with no place else to go holed up in a
student union at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington on
Thursday to ride out Hurricane Fran.
The 13 stranded students included one each from France, England,
Australia, Switzerland and several others from the Cayman Islands.
About 1,900 students e.acuated the campus earlier in the day.
The brick house at the center of campus houses a snack bar and
couches spread around serve as a university living room.
Three NX. schools in magazine's top 25
Three North Carolina universities are among the top 25 colleges
in the nation according to rankings by a national magazine.
Actually, the three are among the top 26 in the nation because the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Wake Forest University
in Winston-Salem tied for 25th in the rankings by U.S. News & World
Report
Duke University ranked fourth. In a separate ranking of public
universities, UNC-Chapel Hill ranked third.

Two services provided to stu-
dents in search of employment are
allies in the battle of job searching:
the North Carolina Employment Se-
curity Commission (ESC) and the
collge work-study program.
North Carolina has established
the ESC to promote the economic well
being of its citizens. The ESC has
been developing its service in order
to better place applicants with jobs
and vice versa.
"We regularly have over 179,000
job listings posted with the ESC at
any given time. At any given time,
we may have a 35,000 resumes sent
or posted with our service in a week
Steve Nichols, the computer assis-
tance coordinator for the ESC said.
Recently the ESC has increased
usage through the Internet This has
allowed applicants to search more
easily and be placed in a job more
quickly.
"There are 500 computer termi-
nals throughout NC for the public to
access. Most of the terminals are lo-
cated at the local ESC offices, but
some are located at any of the 54 com-
munity colleges and universities which
are represented by the ESC Steve
Nichols said.
There are many different job op-
portunities listed on the ESC data-
base, most ranging from professional
and technical to security, sales and
agriculture. Many jobs are geared to-
wards full-time employment However,
there are part-time positions available.
The search is broken down to five
districts covering the state and can
be broken down again to individual
cities.
Sending resumes into the ESC
is the next step once job opportuni-
ties have been found; this can be ac-

Crime Stoppers is looking for anyone with information regarding a
homicide which occurred Sept 2 at 308-D Horseshoe Drive.
Police found Ian E. Profitt 38, in the foyer of his residence bleeding
from a chest wound. He was pronounced dead at Pitt Memorial Hospital
later. Two black males described as being in their mid 20's, wearing dark
clothing and masks were seen running from the foyer moments before the
victim was discovered.
Anyone with information call Crime Stoppers at 758-7777 or the Green-
ville Police Department at 8304315.
Feature update: Marcus Crandeil
ECU quarterback Marcus Crandeil faces misdemeanor charges stem-
ming from an Aug. 18 incident and will testify in court as the victim in a
separate Aug. 23 incident
As reported in last Thursday's edition of TEC, Crandeil was arrested
and charged with simple assault The charges stem from an Aug. 23 inci-
dent in which Donald Yohn alleges he was assaulted by the football piayer.
According to Greenville Police Department Detective Steve Pass, the
charges were brought against Crandeil after the magistrate issued a war-
rant
"Through our investigation, we found insufficient evidence to bring
charges against Crandeil Pass said. "Yohn convinced the magistrate to
issue a warrant and that is why the Greenville Police picked him up
Crandeil was also the victim of a separate incident which occurred
Aug. 18 at the Players Club Apartments.
"Crandeil reported that he was assaulted by a gentleman with a hand-
gun Pass said.
Pass said Howard Staton, 26, of Greenville was arrested and charged
with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
"Staton's charges were felony charges Pass said. "Crandeil was
charged with a misdemeanor in an Aug. 23 incident that we do not believe
was related to the Aug. 18 incident at all

local office.

the ESC is ad-
vised, even if
there aren't any
jobs of interest
A second
aid for students
in search of jobs
is the financial
aid work- study
and self help
programs.
"Last year
there were 531
students on
work-study, who ���
collectively
were awarded over $400,000 in finan-
cial aid. We expect much of the same
this year Rose Mary Stelma, the
director of financial aid at ECU, said.
According to Stelma, students on
work-study work 10-12 hours a week
and earn from minimum wage to the
graduate rate of $8.00 hr.
"The October 1 increase in mini-
mum wage is only expected to affect
those students receiving minimum
wage Stelma said.
Applying for work-study is very
close to the same procedure as finan-
cial aid. The eligibility for work-study

With three weeks left before
opening night of the first of five pro-
ductions, the ECU Playhouse is busy
with preparations.
Gary Faircloth, managing direc-
tor, knows that it takes a lot of time
to prepare for a production.
"It usually takes about five to six
weeks to get ready Faircloth said.
"This includes rehearsing, building
the scenery and getting the costumes
ready
Big River: The Adventures of
Huckleberry Finn opens on Oct 3
and will play every night through
Oct 8 at 8 p.m except for on Sun-
day when it will be performed at 2
p.m. only. Tickets for the musical go
on sale Sept 26. Students with their
I.D. will be able to purchase indi-
vidual tickets at either $8 or $10, de-
pending on seating options. They
will also be allowed one other ticket
at this price. Faircloth admitted that
these prices were a little more than
usual.
"Because Big River is a musical
it costs more for us to do it than
usual Faircloth said. "Most plays
cost about $400 to make, but this one
is about $4000
This year the Playhouse will also
be bringing many more shows to
ECU. These include the play J.B. in
November Dance '97 in February,
Suburbia in March, and Lysistrata
in April. The rates for these shows
is $5 or $6. If you want to help out
with the shows and don't mind get-
ting in free then Faircloth suggested
what you should do.

"Anyone can be an usher for the
show and get in

said. "All heshe
has to do is go to
McGinnis The-
atre and sign up
on the bulletin
board
Out of these
shows, the play Suburbia is one that
Faircloth has high hopes for.
"I hope lots of students come to
see Suburbia, Faircloth said. "It
mostly deals with Generation X and
UPCOMING
EVENTS
it is rated R
The Play-
house has a lot
planned for the
upcoming year
and Faircloth
is not worried
about the suc-
cess.
"The sea-
son itself is just a really good sea-
son Faircloth said. "We usually
have about 75 percent attendance,
which is good, except for the musi-
cal; that will probably sell out"

The Golden Key National Honor
Society chapter at ECU received the
Honorable Mention Key Chapter
Award at the Golden Key International
Convention in Scottsdale, Arizona.
"This recognizes for us that we
solidified the quality of our chapter
said Dr. David Emmerling, chapter ad-
visor and director of the School of
Medicine.
To compete for the international
award, chapters must excel in five ma-
jor areas. These are communications,
publicity, meeting management, chap-
ter activities and leadership. The or-
ganization must also participate in re-
gional and international programs.
This means not only attending con-
ventions, but conducting workshops
in cooperation with the programs as
well.
The area of communication in-
volves having contact with local busi-
nesses, students and faculty through
the use of brochures and newsletters
to provide information about Golden
Key. Meeting management requires
recording and cataloging general
meetings, which includes executive
board and honorary member gather-
ings.
"Flyers, posters, and media such
as The East Carolinian really helped
meet the requirements and allowed us
to go that extra mile Emmerling said.
The chapter activities and lead-
ership area involves the organization's
ability to reach out to the local and
campus community. Sophomore rec-
ognition recognizes the academic
achievements of qualified students
that have obtained sophomore status
and urges them to continue in the
same path. Trash pick-ups, t-shirt sales
and cooking Thanksgiving dinners for
needy families allows ECU's Golden
Key chapter to be competitive in in-
ternational competition while reach-
ing out to others.
All of these activities were put
into record through print and photo-
graphs. They were later compiled into
a chapter notebook, which was sub-
mitted to be reviewed by a screening

The East Carolinian
SAT scores highest in 25 years
WASHINGTON (AP) - The aver
age math score on the 1996 Scholas-
tic Assessment Test rose two points
to its highest level in 25 years, and
verbal scores on the college-entrance
test inched upward as well.
Yet the gains are too small for
some. And critics continue to claim
the test is not a fair indicator of how
students, especially women and mi-
norities, will do in their first year of
college.
The average score on the math
section of the SAT was 508, up from
506 in 1995, according to results re-
leased today by the College Board,
which administers the test The aver-
age score on the verbal section rose
one point to 505 the third consecu-
tive year it increased.
"SAT scores have come to be seen
as a measure of the nation's educa-
tional health Education Secretary
Richard Riley said. "This year's annual
checkup: Pulse is strong, but sus-
tained vigorous exertion required
However, Robert Cohen, presi-
dent of the New York-based Princeton
Review, which coaches test takers and
sells test-preparation materials for the
SAT and other tests, dismissed the
results.
"SAT scores don't tell us any-
thing about American education
Cohen said.
Students from higher-income
families often do better on the test
because "the language of the SAT is
upper middle class he said. Higher
test, scores might actually mean that
fewer low-income students are taking
the test because they cannot afford
to go to college, he said.
More than 1 million people took
the 1996 SAT, which is used by 94
percent of all colleges that use a test
in deciding which students to admit.
Scores are improving partly be-
cause students are taking more hon-
ors courses, said Donald M. Stewart,
president of the College Board. Thirty-
eight percent of the test takers took
honors courses in English and 29
percent said they had taken honors
courses in math, natural science and
social science.
More than 200,000 graduates
qualified for college credit in physics,
calculus, English, history and 15 other
subjects on the basis of grades on the
College Board Advanced Placement
Exams offered by half the nation's
high schools.
In addition, Stewart said SAT
scores are up because students are
studying more English, math, social
sciences and history, natural science,
foreign and classical languages, and
arts and music.
Since 1987, students have spent
more time studying in all except one
of these six academic areas - English
- in which the percentage of students
with four or more years of study fell
from 88 percent to 84 percent Stewart
said.
Christopher Cross, president of
the Council for Basic Education, a
Washington-based organization that
advocates rigorous liberal arts educa-
tion, was encouraged by the test re-
sults. But he said the small rise in
scores in recent years does not negate
an overall decline in verbal scores.
"Even though verbal scores on
the SAT have increased slightly the
last couple of years, thev are still 25
points lower than in 1972 he said.

Harrell quoted an estimate for
the cost of the storm damage.
"We place the total damage on

Harrell expressed his gratitude to
the University employees who were
responsible for cleaning up after the
storm.
"We are extremely proud of our
dedicated employees in grounds, main-
tenance, housekeeping and other ar-
eas, and their response to the
University's needs during this time of
adversity. Their efforts have made this
recovery possible. They worked Fri-

As was reported in TEC after
Hurricane Bertha, Chancellor Eakin's
house sustained significant damage
from the July storm. This time, he said
there was no further damage from

"We came through unscathed. No

Eakin said Bertha was a fright-
ening experience for him and that it
gave him sympathy for those who had
sustained significant damage this
time. He also said the campus in gen-
eral came through the storm fairly
well.
Although students did not have
to attend classes on Friday, it was
business as usual by Monday as ev-
eryone returned to class-at least un-
til the next hurricane.

Our football
team has finally
joined a major
conference. We
at TEC think this
move will help
give the
program the
respect it
deserves.

Conference USA.
Engrave it into your brain.
The recent joining of ECU into Conference USA is an ac-
tion this university needed-and finally acquired. We at TEC
couldn't be happier that the officials want our football pro-
gram to join their conference. It shows that somebody finally
found out that our football program is on the rise and it will
only continue to grow. Now, if we could only prove to the
pollsters what Conference USA already knows, our program
would truly be recognized.
Conference affiliation is going to boost ECU football in so
many ways. First, it will be easier to schedule big name teams
to come to Greenville. We all know that our home schedule
isn't what it could be, but wait until next year and the years
to come. We are all going to be pleasantly surprised.
Joining Conference USA will also allow ECU more air time
on television. Conference USA has a contract with Fox Lib-
erty network and two weekends ago, the nation saw two of
the conference's teams play on national television. Further-
more, both teams won, giving this conference more credibil-
ity.
Playing for a conference championship will also be a big
plus in this new deal. ECU hasn't been able to play for a
conference championship since 1976, when they were part of
the Southern Conference. Since then, the Pirates have been
a I-A independent team.
Being a part of a conference will ensure that ECU's voice
will be heard loud and clear concerning the decisions affect-
ing some of the greatest football teams in the nation. For
example, if ever there was a tie for the national champion-
ship, Conference USA would have a part in the decision to
pick the eventual national champions.
Now we know some people still think that Conference
USA isn't good enough for us. Some may even want us in the
Big East. That has been discussed, but the Big East hasn't
offered ECU anything and there is no guarantee that they
will. We can't snub Conference USA in hopes of waiting for
something that might never happen.
Conference USA is a very credible conference with teams
that are strong and very competitive. And now, with the addi-
tion of ECU, the conference only stands to become stronger.
We will begin conference play next season and TEC couldn't
be happier.
This will give ECU a stronger voice in the football com-
munity-something we haven't been able to have, despite a
record of 9-3 last season and winning the Liberty Bowl. Go
figure.
Head Coach Steve Logan talks of respect and now we are
finally getting it. Conference USA will do a great deal of good
for the university and the football program.
Business as usual in Clintonville
Someone once wrote that the
more things change the more they
stay the same. Perhaps this expres-
sion has not found more validation
than in the realm of presidential poli-
tics. Every election we have a new
candidate promising change. Then
another four years pass and another
candidate promises more changes.
However, change seldom comes and
it sterns that the American people
become increasingly apathetic with
each election.
President Clinton campaigned
on the promise of change. He claimed
that it would not be politics as usual
if he was elected. President Clinton
won the election in a time that the
country was in a recession. The then
new president did have problems with
the economy; however, these prob-
lems were exaggerated. Bill Clinton
inherited an unemployment rate of
6.2 percent which was lower than the
unemployment -ates at the end of
either Carter or Reagan's administra-
tions which were 6.5 percent and 8.6
percent respectively. Also, the infla-
tion rate was a mere three percent,
the lowest since President
Eisenhower's administration. In fact,

Not what the doctor ordered
1980s had more to do with the state
of the economy than did President
Bush's economic policies. With low
inflation and interest rates the
economy was sure to rebound and
when it did Bill Clinton was happy
to take credit for the change.
Bill Clinton is a great politician.
However, he is just that, a politician,
not an agent for change. In regards
to politics as usual, about all that Mr.
Clinton has changed are his suit and
hair color.
Take the appointment of Hillary
Clinton to oversee a sweeping health
care reform bill. This was an unprec-
edented move to appoint the first
lady to head such an important
policy-making role. The idea of health
districts and what it could do to the
quality of health care in America was
rejected. Hillary Clinton was also
being perceived as arrogant and con-
descending. Then, later character
and legal questions about the First
Lady arose. Both Mr. and Mrs.
Clinton's popularity ratings plum-
meted. Then in November 1994, the
Democrats were handed one of the
worst political defeats in history.
Now, 1996, a new year and a new
election. What ever happened to the
liberal Bill and Hillary? With the
passing of a new health insurance bill
and the subsequent presidential
speech, Mrs. Clinton wasn't even on
the platform. Ironically, the First
Lady sat in the audience supporting
her husband with a smile that would
make Donna Reid blush. President
Clinton, himself, is even at odds with
many from his own party over the
recent welfare reform bill. Could it
be they have taken a right turn on
the political road to reelection, or
maybe it is just business as usual in
Clintonville?
The world of news coverage is full
of predictions and statistics these
days. For example, Sports Illustrated
recently released their annual college
football preview.
I am not the world's biggest guru
of sports, especially when it comes to
something as up in the air as college
football. So my prediction for the Fall
of 19 is going to be on something
I'm a little better at predicting; poli-
tics. So hold on to your hats, in the
words of the great, yet often misun-
derstood, Al Bundy, "Let's rock '
Monday marked the official start
of the 1996 race to be the most pow-
erful man in the world. In other words,
the race to become the President of
the United States of America is now
"official" (as if nothing that was done
or said in the past 12 months
counted.)
First off, let's start off with the
challenger; Bob Dole. This man knows
his way around Washington like no
one we have ever seen. He truly came
into his own back in 1972 when he
became chairperson of the Republi-
can National Committee under Nixon.
He co uiued on in Congress until his
resigning to pursue the office of the
Presidency full-time. He is tradition-
ally an opponent of big government,
defender of family values and about a
nine on the political continuum.
Dole's running mate is Jack
Kemp. Like Dole, Kemp has been
around Washington for quite some
time. He championed supply side leg-
islation in the early '80s and was the
director of housing and urban devel-
opment He sits in at about a six on
the political continuum.
In the defending champions cor-
ner we have Bill Clinton. He has al-
most completed a full term as Presi-
dent and is still 15 years away from
Christopher S. Arline
Opinion Columnist
being eligible for social security (not
that there will be any left by then.)
He tends to become somewhat liberal
after winning elections but after about
six months he calms down und moves
toward the center.
Al Gore is the current "only a
heart beat away from the presidency
man He varies on his degree of lib-
eralism depending on the issue. His
biggest claim is that he is the current
patron saint of the environment (and,
of course bears a striking resemblance
to Superman).
Okay, now for the who's going to
win and why.
It is going to be ClintonGore for
four more.
Bob Dole is a seasoned veteran
and people trust him. His problems
are the economy, his track record and
his vice presidential nominee. The top
time to beat out an incumbent is when
the economy is bad off. We have just
entered our 67th consecutive month
of economic expansion; that translates
to good times and people are happy.
The second problem is his track
record. He has yet to pull off any big
political feat that will make the rest
of the country rally behind him. Much
of the work he has done in recent
times has been with Newt Gingrich,
now a bad name in Washington.
The third problem is his running
mate. Jack Kemp is popular, knows
it. and likes to speak his mind. He
and Dole have been adversaries for
years for the simple reason that they
have different views. Kmp believes
in transfer payments to the poor
while Dole fought for welfare reform.
Another huge split is their support
of Proposition 187 (a big anti-illegal
immigration bill that passed in Cali-
fornia, which I strongly support).
Dole is in favor and Kemp is animat-
edly opposed. California is a must win
state and Dole is already behind
enough as it is. I see the two of them
making out okay for the next month
then as crunch time comes and the
tensions flare, the rift will be more
apparent.
Clinton is currently experiencing
the highest approval rating he has
had since being elected (53 percent)
and it will probably go up more if
the strikes on Iraq continue without
using ground forces. He passed the
welfare reform bill, kept two-thirds
of his promises (good for a politician),
and even though voters don't trust
him entirely, they believe that he
does care about them more than big
interest groups.
You don't have to believe me on
this one but I've been right about all
my predictions thus far (the Repub-
lican congressional freshmen disown-
ing Gingrich, there being a terrorist
act at the Olympics and Clinton put-
ting limits on cigarette advertising.)
Dole isn't the medicine the vot-
ers are looking for ail he will go
down. Good thing he still supports
sugar subsidies.

I'm sick and tired of all of this
dang construction on campus. If I
wanted to skirt around fences all
day, then I would have gone back
to N.C. State to get my Master's
degree. At least there I was used
to it
ECU used to have a nice cam-
pus. Taking a walk across it with
my dog was enjoyable. Greenville
doesn't have many sidewalks (ex-
cept for the sizable one that � uns
along 5th street), and the leisurely
stroll around campus used to be a
nice way to spend an afternoon
with my pet
Now, however, if I want to take
that walk I have to confine myself
to the east side of campus. Because
of construction in no less than
three major areas of student travel
(The Wright Place, theJoyner Li-
brary extension and the Student
Rec Center), west campus looks
more like a prison than a univer-
sity.
I understand that these new
facilities are intended to allow the
university to be able to better serve
the student body, but I'm left with
the question - is it worth it? Are
we really being better served by
these changes?
Let's take them one by one.
First, there's the Wright Place.
Okay, on the good side, I'm glad
that they bricked up the road. I
wasn't being used as a road any-
way, and the brickyard makes it
more accessible as a place to con-
gregate.
But a cafe? Who needs this?
The inside of theWright Place has
only superficially changed, so the
big money and construction must
be for the outdoor cafe part I say
that instead of putting tables out-
side, take that money and give us
a tuition break. I, for one, would
be glad to sit on the damn ground.
Next, the library. Sure, I'll
agree that a library expansion was
sorely needed and is a valuable re-
source for our collective educa-
tions, but I do have one nagging
question.
Who needs those friggin'
purple neon lights? What a com-
plete and utter waste of money. Not
only is it a lame attempt to make
the place look cool, it's a bleedin'
annoying eyesore. Again, this is a
perfect example of a misuse of
funds.
And speaking of that, the new
Recreation Center has got my goat
I believe that one's physical well-
being is directly tied into one's
mental well-being, so a facility that
is set up to help that situation is
welcomed by me.
But isn't this place going a
little overboard? Who needs several
oympic-length pools or a weight
room the size of the White House?
Talk about overkill. It's three times
the size of Wal-Mart for God's sake.
If those funds have to be spent
then I'd much rather see them go-
ing to hire new professors or to buy
books for the library. After all,
we're not here to work out or drink
coffee all day. We're here to get an
education. Let's get what we paid
for.
R.E.M.
New Adventures In
Hi-Fi
John Davis
Staff WtHvr
One of the main problems suc-
cessful rock acts face is themselves.
People expect a certain sound from a
band and certain kinds of songs about
certain subjects. As time progresses,
styles and tastes change, and what was
once new and innovative now sounds
dated and obsolete.
So, you run into bands like
Aerosmith, who are talented but
whose current songs sound a little too
similar to the hits they wrote in the
late '80s. Then you have groups like
R.E.M who have somehow managed
to stay ahead of the wave and have
become one of those rare bands that
influence rather than copy.
One really isn't quite sure what
to think about the name of the album,
New Adventures In Hi-Fi. It doesn't
really sound like the title of a modern
rock album. The title brings images
of humor-rock (like They Might Be
Giants or King Missile) or maybe rap
albums to mind, as if R.E.M. will be
"kickin' it East Coast" all of a sud-
den.
Still, for the past several years the
trend in underground rock has gone
for a more lo-fi sound, less produc-
tion, and a poorer recording quality.
The focus for current underground
bands has been more on emotion
rather than technical ability. It was
from that arena that Monster, R.E.Ms
last album, sprang. The loud guitar-
driven rock tunes and the even, steady
sound of the production gave that
album a rawer, emotional feel.
But that was four years ago. Now
it's 1996, baby, and time for a new
direction. R.E.M. has always rein-
vented themselves with each succes-
sive album, and this is no exception.
The album's opener, "How the
West Was Won and Where it Got Us
begins with a sequenced drum loop,
which (if I am not mistaken) is a first
for the band. The drum machine

Sebadoh
Harmacy
John Davis
Staff Writer
I remember a conversation 1
had once with a friend of mine in a
coffee shop concerning all of the rea-
sons that romantic relationships
usually failed and how rare and spe-
cial it was when one actually worked.
After much discussion, we finally
came to the conclusion that the
problem was the fact that there were
human beings involved and they al-
ways manage to mess things up a
bit. The other thing we decided was
that it was those same human be-
ings that made the relationships
worthwhile.
This is pretty much the same
conclusion reached by songwriters
Lou Barlow and Jason Lowenstein
on Sebadoh's latest album,
Harmacy. The theme of the entire
album revolves around romantic re-
lationships, but unlike other such
albums by other artists (Peter
Gabriel's Us or U2's Achtung Baby).
Sebadoh goes a littie deeper into the
messier aspects of the relationship
and explores some of the less noble
thoughts and feelings involved.
As with both Gabriel and U2,
Sebadoh have a quality to their mu-
sic that a number of other bands
seem to lack (especially in the indie
rock genre) - the ability to write and
play music, which, if listened to with-
out the lyrics, would very nearly con-
vey the emotions of the songwriters.
From the first mellow guitar
intro in "On Fire" to the last frus-
trated protest in "I Smell a Rat the
music of Harmacy creates a dis-
jointed but beautiful backdrop to
the complaints and observations
that Barlow and Lowenstein have to
offer.
Unlike their previous release,
Bakesale, Sebadoh have given more
of a team effort this time around.
Rather than relying mostly on
Barlow's writing talent, as they did
on Bakesale, the band balance
rather evenly between Barlow's col-
lected, psychological explanations
and Lowenstein's emotive observa-
tions, making the album more like
a conversation than a school lesson.
Drummer Bob Fay even contributes
a few superb instrumental tracks
that supplement the conversation
quite well.
Barlow's underrated talent
shines through on such jewels as
"Beauty of the Ride a mature look
at the arguments and pitfalls of a
relationship. He ends a rather sad
account of some trying times with
the affirmation that "All this tension
back and forth It's just the beauty
of the ride
Lowenstein has some powerful
contributions as well, such as
"Prince-S" (pronounced "princess")
or "Too Pure" where he deals with
the frustration of giving exhaus-
tively to the relationship and never
receiving.
In spite of all of the seriousness
and sadness of the subject matter,
Sebadoh manage to keep an optimis-
tic outlook and a sense of humor.
Rather than falling into the some-
times tiring depression of such
bands as Nirvana or Smashing
Pumpkins, Sebadoh find the good
in most situations and realize that
a good many of their problems come
not from this other person but from
themselves.
And they are more than willing,

now ECU bound
Dale Williamson
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
The new academic year is well
underway, and thai means the 1996-
97 Writers Reading Series of East-
ern North Carolina will soon launch
its new season. The writers for the
series have been carefully chosen,
promising a year filled with eclec-
tic literary talents from around the
country and the world.
The Writers Reading Series is
an on-going project cosponsored by
the Lannan Foundation. ECU's De-
partment of English, Sheppard Me-
morial Library, the Ethnic Studies
Program, the Vice Chancellor of
Research, the Greenville Museum of
Art, AccuCopy of Greenville. Stindt
Photographic, The Kingston Free
Press, and the Women's Studies
Program.
The series functions as a means
for bringing high-quality, published
writers to eastern North Carolina in
order to share their works with local
residents. By bringing accomplished
authors to Greenville, the Writers
Series provides local readers and
writers with the opportunity to not
only enjoy hearing current voices of
the literary scene but also an oppor-
tunity to converse with these writ-
ers.
"Our writers have been chosen
carefully says Series Director and
ECU English Professor Julie Fay, "be-
cause of their willingness to read
their works to and speak with the
public
The writers featured this year
reflect a wide range of cultural back-
grounds that should appeal to a large
variety of readers.
On OcL 1, Jay Wright, who has
been anthologized in such books as
New Negro Poets and The Poetry of
Black America, will present his au-
tobiographical and historical poetry,
which pulls from his knowledge in
anthropology, religion, folklore and
philosophy in African. European, His-
panic and Native American culture.
On Nov. 18, Rafael Campo will
explore his dual identity as both a
physician and poet as he reads po-
ems and essays from such collec-
tions as The Other Man Was Me:
A Voyage to the New World and
his soon-to-be-published The Po-
etry of Healing: A Doctor's Edu-
cation in Empathy, Identity, and
Desire.
Dec. 2 brings us the interna-
tionally acclaimed Margaret
Randall, who has published more
than 50 books. Pulling from her
experiences as a poet, photogra-
pher, oral historian, activist and
teacher. Randall will explore cul-
tural identities within a
multicultural world.

Musically, the best thing about
Greenville is being able to catch live en-
tertainment .Students and town residents
can relax and enjoy the performances of
a number of local acts. The musicians
also get a chance to prove themselves.
Would you like to be a part of the
entertainment? Are you looking to get
involved in the local music scene? Fear
not. Greenville's local musicians say that
it's all in patience, drive and, of course,
the people you meet.
Getting started is the hardest thing
to do. It's almost like you're at the start-
ing line and they won't shoot the pistol.
But getting started has a lot to do with
where you're starting from. If a local
music scene is lacking, it's double tough
getting a band off the ground. Luckily,
Greenville doesn't have that problem.
First things first get out of the
house. Go downtown and get your name
out on the streets by talking to people at
different clubs. A number of the local
clubs downtown book live acts. Find out
what their policies and requirements for
booking bands are. The only way for you
to get noticed is to be noticeable.
Next, go make a demo tape. "How
can 1 get a demo tape made?" you ask.
Chances are. if you've already talked to
people downtown, then you've met some-
one who can get your sound out.
Backdoor Music, located above Alfredo's
Pizza, might be able to help you out They
have an eight-track that produces a de-
cent representation of a performer's
work. If things don't work out for you
there, try Audio Art. and so on down the
line until you find an environment you
like. Most of the studios that work with
live music are listed in the Greenville
phone book
Once you've recorded a demo, head
back downtown and hand out demo
tapes. Downtown is full of surprises. The
important thing to remember is that each
club is different Corrigan's is always look-
ing for good rock n' roll. BW3's looks
for a more laid back sound, whether it
be country or cover tunes. Places like
Peasant's and the Attic are looking for
bands that can draw big crowds, basi-
cally anything with a groove that will pack
the house. Hopefully, you'll begin to book
some gigs. The clubs in Greenville are
pretty good when it comes to support-
ing local music.
If you get a
show iocked in, then
let people know
when you're playing
by putting up flyers.
If a few dates are
ahead, it would be a
good idea to get
some schedules
printed up and hand
them out at your
shows. The more or-
ganized you are, the
more people will notice you and notice
that you are becoming something more,
something better.
Often the best place to turn for ad-
vice is to the local musicians themselves.
One such individual is local boy Chuck
Manning, who is not only the lead singer
and rhythm guitarist of Sex. Love and
Money, but also plays bass with the ex-
otic Fuego del Alma. Both bands are
signed to respected record labels such
as Rockworld (a division of Sony) and
Pueblo, and both got their start in Green-
ville. But Manning's advice has nothing
to do with location.
His is a key piece of advice for those
just getting started, "Surround yourself
with people who are just as enthused
about jthe band as you are Don't get
caught up with people who aren't into
your sound, basically. It's good advice. If
those around you aren't really into what
you're doing musically, you won't feel
inspired or driven to succeed. Find those
who can play with you, respectfully, and
you should be okay.
The members of Greenville's latest
I
up and coming group, Third of Never,
have their advice to give as well. "The
only thing I can say is to be persistent
and patient Believe in what you're do-
ing said Dan Matthews, the band's lead
singer.

stuff fall in my lap said Matt Toth. drum-

is coming, but still looking out for it is
probably the most interesting, but frus-
trating, thing about the wait If you're
not witling to wait, then you're prob-
ably in the wrong business. Every one
of the people in Greenville's current
music scene waited, and are still wait-
ing, for a record deal. That's part of what
achieving your goals is about Ask your-
self, "If there weren't any luck or risk
involved, would the business be as in-

Greenville provides some unique
opportunities for aspiring musicians.
Get involved in the right places and
you're sure to be heard. The best thing
about being heard, whether it be on the
radio, in a club, or in a dorm room, is
that your message is out there, a part
of you is out there. If you can appreci-
ate that and you've got that lucky four-
leaf clover in your back pocket then
how can you go wrong?

my pleasant surprise, the Plaza cinema
was advertising Emma, the highly
praised comedy of manners based on
Jane Austen's novel.
I was thrilled. An ambitious film
with some artistic integrity had some-
how found its way to Greenville despite
large competition from the end-of-sum-
mer blockbusters now flooding theaters.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Fran
made an uninvited visit to eastern North
Carolina and Emma was not delivered
on schedule.
I was in a fix. I needed to see a movie
right away in order to get my all-too-iin-
portant movie review in on time. By the
time I found out about Emma's delay,
the time was already 9:15 pjn. The only
film I could still catch and review was .
a Sinbad flick?
While I am not particularly a Sinbad
fan, I do find him somewhat amusing,
and in all honesty his new film, First Kid,
does succeed as a harmless, brainless
comedy that probably will be a hit with
younger children. However, adults who
desire more brains in their humor may
want to wait for Emma.
First Kid is the story of Agent Sam
Simms, a wild card in the normally
straight-laced Secret Service. Simms is
not the type of agent who always follows
protocol (he wears ties blazoned with wild
colors), and he is not popular with sev-
eral of his superiors.
While Simms has a dream of some-
day protecting the President of the
United States, his antics ultimately land
him the not-soglorious job of protect-
ing, yes, the President's bratty son. With
this concept set in place, much goofy hi-
larity follows.
First Kid is nothing but brain candy
for kids. There's nothing wrong with
brain candy entertainment (I happen to
love The Brady Bunch Movie and
Clueless, as well as that aptly named Kids
in the Hall movie. Brain Candy), but
Sinbad's style of humor, at least within
this film, doesn't offer much that is new
for its older audiences.
Sinbad lacks the origi-
nality of Robin Williams,
the wit of Dennis Miller
and the edge of Chris
Rock. Kids will laugh out
loud as Sinbad dresses
in a giant Coca-Cola out-
fit and skates face-first
into a birthday cake, but
gags such as this seem
to lose their flavor when
viewed through an adult
lens.
Still, despite this
film's onslaught of tired
slap-stick comedy, First
Kid does offer some nice
moments. Brock Pierce
is effective as Luke Dav-
enport, the President's
son who is forced into so-
cial isolation through his
circumstances. As a re-
sult of being such a pub-
lic figure, Luke can't re-
late to others. The only
peace he finds is
through the Internet
where he can be anyone
other than the
President's son.
Director David Mickey Evans and
writer Tim Keileher play around with
such ideas as Luke's detachment from
his high-profile parents and his desire to
be a normal kid, but they only succeed
on a juvenile level Anytime a serious it-
sue begins to develop, the On either

With such a strong group of writ-

a highly productive and engaging ex-

ble&ds into a more rootsy acoustic
sou&d befitting the subject matter, but
theieat stays throughout the song.
AlsS there are all of these tiny
"soands" in the rhythm of the song
which are reminiscent of early '80s
eurffrock.
I The whole album continues like
thi; a mixture of the strong
sonfewriting that R.E.M. is known for
andisome new and odd twists to the
material. It's almost as if the band
werf reminding us where they have
beeij while taking us further into the
future.
ISome of the songs sound like
theifr more recent albums. "New Test
Leper" sounds like it could have been
on Automatic for the People, while
songs like "Undertow" and "Bitter-
sweet Me" are more rock and roll in
the jtyle of Monster. Other songs pull
the Jistener way, way back into the
band's earlier career, such as "Depar-
turej which sounds like a leftover from
LifeU Rich Pageant or Murmur, or
"El&trolite" which reminds me of the
ballads on Green.
�However, the real gems on the
album are the songs that explore to-
tally; uncharted territory for the band.
"Le$ve" sounds lii.e no R.E.M. song
befcfre it, with a fuzzy guitar backdrop
andjstrange siren sound that could
be either a guitar or a synthesizer.
Binky The Doormat" sounds like
whal would happen if one were to slap
country-western together with early
'70s�David Bowie guitar effects. But
the combination is very tasty, like
those old Reese' commercials -
"Your chocolate fei into my peanut
butter "Zither" is an instrumental
track featuring a combination of gui-
tar tremolo and an autoharp. And
again, there are tiny sounds through-
out the whole album, little beeps and
clicks and hums.
As always, Michael Stipe is a
masterful lyricist and singer, writing
with an Andy Warhol approach to
culture wherein he uses common
things to create the most poetic im-
ages: "I never thought of this as
funny it speaks another world to me
I wanna be your Easter bunny I
wanna be your Christmas tree Sound
silly? Let Michael sing it to you in "Be
Mine" and it will become believable.
Stipe also plays around with his
voice, a versatile instrument, and cre-
ates some powerful moods. On sev-
eral songs, he uses a sing-speak sort
of chant that evokes images of perfor-
mance poetry or really moody rap (so
maybe he really is kickm' it East
Coast). The vocals on "E-bow the Let-
ter" are a prime example of this, es-
pecially with Stipe's chanting juxta-
posed with Patti Smith's soulful wail-
ing. There is an overall stream-of-con-
sciousness feel to New Adventures'
lyrics and theme.
Actually, the music is also very
stream-of-consciousness. The album
feels like a roller coaster ride, or a
swim in the ocean during a hurricane
- lots of highs and lots of lows, which
is exactly the image that the title
evokes.
I have no idea what it is like to
be one of the few bands to success-
fully make the transition from the '80s
to the '90s without losing integrity. (I
have no idea what it feels like to be in
any kind of rock band.) But it must
become a bit belaboring at times to
stay ahead of the current. Or, it may
not be work at all.
It might just be an adventure.
And the album sounds like that, too,
with R.E.M. redefining themselves,
reordering their music and their im-
age. But they're having a blast while
doing so, and stopping to appreciate
the contradictions and silly aspects
of being rock stars.
The really amazing thing about
this album is the risk the band is tak-
ing to chart new territory. To redirect
themselves so soon after the success
of Monster takes guts.
What is even more amazing is
that I really think they'll pull it off.
As innovative as the album is, it will
very likely be R.E.Ms biggest seller,
which will put them in better straits
than other innovative bands (think of
Pearl Jam's Vitalogy or U2's Zooropa).
If so, R.E.M. may become the
band of the '90s, carrying success
around with them no matter what
they try. It's bound to be a wild and
odd ride, but if they keep creating
wonders like New Adventures in Hi-
Fi, then I will be riding right along
with them.

Expectations met during game
Despite slow first
half team puts
points on board
Dill Dillard
Assistant Sports Editor
A win's a win. I'm sure that is
going through the minds of Pirate
fans, coaches and players alike.
ECU'S 45-21 win over the Bucca-
neers of East Tennessee State this past
Saturday at Dowdy- Ficklen Stadium,
was not what you would call a crisp
victory. Piayed in the aftermath of
Hurricane Fran, the Pirates had to
fight the elements of distraction, first
game jitters, as well as a third quar-
ter monsoon.
The Pirates had their troubles
early in the contest stopping tailback
Brian Edwards behind a surprisingly
tough Buccaneer offensive line. ECU's
superior defensive front was expected
to dominate the line of scrimmage
against a young ETSU line.
This was not the case however;
the division I-AA Bucs took it to the
Pirates and lived up to Steve Logan's
expectations by playing the game like
it was "Their Super Bowl With a
hungry team coming off a big win like
ETSU, the Pirates made mistakes in
the ball game that made the score
closer than fans expected. Folks, this
is to be expected. ECU on Saturday
showed how badly they needed to play
an actual football game. The miscues
and non-characteristic errors made by
both the defensive as well as offen-
sive units, were
results of first
game glitches.
So rest
easy, citizens of
"Purpleville
the crisp ma-
chine that we
know as ECU
football, will

itself in the

didn't notice af-
ter the third
quarter mon- ��
soon, the Pi-
rates looked more like the Pirates
we've become accustomed to here in
lovely "Purpleville The offense was
led by the combination of superb run-
ning by fullback Scott Hariey backed
up by the Marcus CrandellLarry
Shannon air show, which accounted
for two huge touchdowns.
Now, I know there were mistakes
made in this first game, but you have
to give credit where credit is due.
Hariey answered a lot of questions Sat-
urday about his future at the fullback
position. The media questioned his
ability to take the starting job by the
horns and with a 165 yard perfor-
mance, he put those wonders to rest

Crandell to Shannon. Need I say
more? Shannon stepped up his game
three notches on Saturday, mainly
with his 41 yard touch down recep-
tion when ECU
needed a spark in a
near silent second
quarter.
Another bright
spot of the after-
noon came from the
special team's
youngsters, punter
Andrew Bayes and
PK Brantley Rivers.
Both of these true
freshmen stepped
on the field and per-
formed extremely
well for their first
mmmmmmmmmm ever college football
game. Look for a
strong special teams for the Pirates
as the season progresses.
One would have to be impressed
with ECU's ability not to panic when
their backs were against the wall.
ETSU posed a challenge to the Pirates
and Logan and his troops answered
with a solid second half. The highly
regarded defense rose to the challenge
after a slow start as did the offense.
Logan's expectations for his team will
be raised this week in practice, so
expect to see a sharp ECU team take
the field in Morgantown, WV next
weekend.
Oh, and by the way, after a slow
start, ECU did manage to put up 45
points.
Women's soccer shuts out Radford
Lady Pirate
defense too much
for team
Jon Lauterer
Staff Writer
It was a hct, sultry afternoon
when the ECU women's soccer team
took to the field. But the only heat the
team was feeling was the fire they were
producing.
Going into the game the players
were unsure about their opponent
"We don't know much about this
team senior Stacie Schott said. "It's
kind of unsettling going into
this and not knowing what to
be ready for
The Lady Pirates weren't
a bit unsure when Sunday ar-
rived, but the same couldn't be
said about Radford.
The game started off in an explo-
sive ECU fashion when freshman Karen
Blake burned the net on the third
minute of play to put points on the
board.
Radford woke up and attempted
a short-lived offensive assault on the
ECU goal. A surge of defense by ECU
stopped Radford's attempts. The ag-
gressiveness of both teams briefly de-
creased when a Radford player was
checked in the face by the back of a
Lady Pirate's head.
At the end of the first quarter,
Stacie Gause made a 30-yard direct kick
off the goalkeeper's hands, off the top
pole and then landing a few feet inside
the goal. This was the beginning of a
struggling effort on the part of the
Radford goalkeeper.
Meanwhile, on the other end of
the field, ECU goalie Cara Morgridge
wasn't shot on during the first
half. Radford's drought of shot
attempts can be credited to
freshman defensive players Jill
Davis and Shana Woodward,
who effectively held the Radford
attackers at bay.
At the half, ECU Head Coach Neil
Roberts moved Amy Horton into the
goal box. Horton would go on to make
one save.
The Lady Pirates came oui at half-
time and manhandled the ladies in red.
Radford couldn't get the ball very far
over the mid-field line, thus they had
few chances of scoring.
Gause launched another airborne
kick straight over the goalkeepers head
midway into the second half.
The last goal ECU made was a bit
crazy as a Radford player helped to
score the goal.
"The last goal may have been
scored by Radford, but it wouldn't have
been possible without Melissa Rucker's
pressure on their defense Roberts
said.
The last 15 minutes of the game
were packed with frustration fouls by
Radford, leading to a yellow card.
"We are taking this season one
step at a time, preparing for the up-
coming conference game with Old
Dominion Roberts said. "Everybody
got minutes from the bench and they
continue to be effective and persistent"
However, before they can start
conference games, the Lady Pirates will
host Liberty tomorrow afternoon at 4
p.m. Admission is free.

Jitters combated
after first game win
Fourth quarter
surge ensures
victory
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
ECU's first game jitters are
over and a jittery game it was.
The game was decided in the
second half and Head Coach
Steve Logan knew that would be
the deciding half. He told his play-
ers at half time they would have
to turn it up.
"I said it was going to be the
second half when you break
them Logan said.
But that one victory over
East Tennessee State on Saturday
didn't come as easy as everyone
might have thought it would.
Quarterback Marcus Crandell
knew the jitters would be present.
"Today was out first game
and we got the jitters out
Crandell said. "We sputtered a little
bit to start off and then later on
we got it going
ETSU got first possession and
started on their own 19-yard line.
During the Buccaneers first drive,
quarterback Greg Johnson never
threw the ball - they relied on their
running game. ������i. .1
Tailback Brian
Edwards ran up
the middle for
the first three
plays, gaining a
iota! of El
yards. But 10 of
those yards
came from ECU
penalties. an�����
The Bucs
never got ths ball into ECU terri-
tory and wen forced to punt from
their 36-yard line.
Now it was ECU's turn on of-
fense. The first play of the opening
drive saw Crandell throw a bomb
downfield intended for wide re-
ceiver Mitch Galloway. The ball was
overthrown by a few yards and
"I said it was
going to be the
second half when
you break them

never caught.
The Pirates moved the ball
down the field and after 10 plays
and 72 yards, ECU scored off a
Galloway touchdown and extra
attempt point by Chad Holcomb.
The Pirates led 7-0.
Ryan came out and moved-
the ball down
the field to the
45-yard line in
Pirate territory,
but again they
were forced to
punt. But little
did Ryan know,
he would have
a short-lived
iimwh break on the
sideline.
After a 29 yard punt by
punter David Helton, flanker Ja-
son Nichols caught the ball fair
at their own 16-yard line. Crandell
took to the field only to thrown
an interception right into the
arms of Tyson Taylor.

The East Carolinian
Volleyball team prepares
for home game opener
Sean R. O'Brien
staff writer
ECU women's volleyball is gear-
ing up for their home opener against
the N.C. A&T Aggies.
The Lady Pirates beat the Aggies
twice last season but have not seen
much on this year's squad. Coach Kim
Walker is confident in the team's over-
all play going into tonight's game,
even though the beginning of the sea-
son has been a bit rocky.
The Lady Pirates opened the sea-
son in Towson, Maryland in the
Towson State Tournament The team
did not fare as well as they would have
liked after going 04 in the tourna-
ment. The team suffered losses to
Towson State, Kent State, West Vir-
ginia and Xavier. A major cause for
the losses was the team's inability to
hit the ball.
"West Virginia was a good match
for us because we out played them in
every statistical category but hitting
Walker said.
The team also suffered a loss
against the top team in the Atlantic
10, Xavier.
"We matched up real well against
Xavier, which is a good team in a
strong conference, but we still got out-
hit" Walker said.
"We played real tough and played
everyone hard, but we got out- hit by
everyone of them Walker said, "and
if you don't hit you can't win
The team improved on their hit-
ting after the losses at Towson and
bounced back with a victory against
Hampton University. This was a vic-
tory that allowed Walker to see some
of the positives that may have been
overshadowed by the losses.
"The defense is all set and
looked good Walker said. "We just
seemed to be playing with a lot tA
jitters at Towson and I think that
hurt us.
"We still need to improve on our
first ball contact, but we are coming
together as a team Walker said.
The Lady Bucs should be settled
down for the Aggies tonight after
getting that first win out of the way
against Hampton. The team should
also be well rested after having to
cancel a tournament at N.C. State
over the weekend because of Hurri-
cane Fran.
The match will begin at 7 p.m.
inside Minges Coliseum.

Varsity sports aren't the only
sports that dominate this univer-
sity. ECU offers a number of club
sports that any willing participant
can take part in. One is men's la-
crosse, a sport that requires speed,
agility and power.
The 25 to 30 man squad starts
three defensivemen around its own
goal and three attackers around the
opposition's goal, all of whom can-
not cross midfield, plus three mid-
dies, who can cross midfield, and a
goalie.
While it is
only considered
a club sport at
ECU, the players
take it very seri-
ously.
"We had
some tough
games last year
junior Cullen
McNulty said.
"We beat James Madison 8-7 in
overtime, it was our biggest game.
But UNC-Wilmington and N.C.
"We beat James
Madison eight to
seven in overtime,
it was our biggest
State remain our biggest rivals
How good is men's lacrosse at
��. ECU? Last year's

team went unde-
feated in the
NCLL and were
state champs.
They were also
national core fi-
nalists and fin-
ished 15-3.
"Last sea-
son went great
sophomore Ben Kley said. "No one
was disappointed with our season
The team only lost two start-
ers, but gained 10 new players and.
according to Kley. that makes for a
better team.
"We are definitely better this
year Kley said.

The Bucs scored off the inter-
ception in a bizarre fashion. From
the 11-yard line Edwards took the
ball up the middle, only to fumble
it and to have teammate Manuel
Llaneza recover the fumble in the
end zone for the Bucs first points.
At the end of the first quarter
the ballgame was tied 7-7.
ECU started off the second
quarter with the ball, but two plays
later freshman punter Andrew
Bayes came in and kicked a 48 yard
punt.
The second quarter was some-
what better for the Pirates. During
their second possession, ECU was
on the 26-yard line attempting to
score. Crandeli threw a pass to split

end Larry Shannon for a touch-
down, but the points were called
back because of an illegal block in
the back by an ECU player.
Later in the drive, the Pirates
would settle for a Holcomb field
goal, giving ECU a 10-7 lead.
ECU freshman place-kicker
Brantley Rivers moved the ball
down the field on kickoffs placing
the ball within the five-yard line all
but one time.
"The first kickoff I was ner-
vous, but after that it was smooth
Rivers said.
"Rivers gave us the height and
depth on the kickoff Logan said.
This time ECU made sure that
another touchdown wasn't called
back. Eight plays later and 70 yards
behind them, another Crandeli
pass to Shannon was attempted and
this time it counted.
ETSU scored right before the
half ended and ECU led 17-14.
At the half, Crandeli had ac-
cumulated 127 passing yards to
Ryan's 65 yards. ECU also had an
edge in rushing numbers, with 17
attempts for 99 yards, to the Bucs'
20 attempts and 64 yards.
In the weeks before the game,
the running game was questionable
due to the loss of Jerris McPhail.
Sophomore fullback Scott Harley si-
lenced the critics, outrushing any
of his opponents, netting 70 yards
to end the half.
"In the beginning of the game
I was worried about hanging onto
the football, but then in the sec-
ond half I just held the ball tight
to my body Harley said.
Logan was pleased with
Harley's performance.
"He's (Harley) got very strong
thighs and can break tackles
Logan said. "He performed pretty
well today

Both teams came back out af-
ter the break and it was a whole
new ball game. Midway through the
third quarter the rain began to fall.
ECU got the ball first to start
the second half, and got nowhere
quickly, not being able to convert
any first downs and being forced
to punt the ball.
ETSU scored next after three
plays on another tricky play as the
ball was deflected and then caught
by tailback Jeff Woods for a touch-
down. The Bucs took the lead for
the first time, 21-17.
The Pirates were determined
not to get upset by this team and
the defense made sure no more
points were put on the board by
their visitors.
Another Crandeli to Shannon
pass for a touchdown and Holcomb
kick flip-flopped the lead back
ECU'S way, 24-21.
The Pirates held onto the ball
for the last five minutes of the quar-
ter but couldn't produce another
score before time expired.
Then came the fourth quarter.
And what a quarter it was.
Logan had a hat trick for the
Bucs at the beginning of the fourth
quarter with a fourth down and two
yards to go. Quarterback Dan
Gonzalez took to the field on a fake
punt play and dished it off to Gal-
loway, who ran for nine yards for
the first down.
ECU continued its drive to-
wards the goal line and a missed
25-yard kick by Holcomb still kept
the score 24-21, in favor of ECU.
Ryan returned to the field, only
to throw an interception into
Forrest Poster's arms to give the
Pirates another scoring chance.
ECU was on ETSU's two yard
line and three plays later, Crandeli
connected with tight end Scott
Richards for another touchdown,
31-21.
A slick ball made it hard for
players to hold on and another
turnover by ETSU gave the Pirates
possession again. Buc wide receiver
Corey Lindsey fumbled the ball;
and ECU cornerback Tabari
Wallace recovered and took the ball
down to the ETSU 32-yard line.
The Pirates needed just three
plays again to score, this time on a
Harley 11-yard run up the middle.
ECU now held a 38-21 advantage.
But ECU wasn't finished. Shep
Sepaniak took a ball in from the
one yard line for the last touch-
down of the day. The final score
stood at 45-21.
ECU will now go into practice
in anticipation for this Saturday's
away match up against West Vir-
ginia in Morgantown, W.Va. Game
time is set for-noon.

team is playing what they call "Fall
Ball It is almost like a tune-up and
will not be reflected on the spring
record, but it remains quite com-
petitive.

and Virginia Tech
