SAN DIEGO (AP) - Paramed-
ics beheaded a family's 9-foot pet
python after it wrapped itself
around a pregnant woman's stom-
ach and also entangled her hus-
band.
Mary Anne Carter, who is
eight months pregnant, woke up
about 10 a.m. to find the Burmese
python coiled around her stom-
ach and biting her buttocks, po-
lice said.
Her husband tried to free her
using a small knife, but he too
became ensnared. Finally, para-
medics used a hacksaw to remove
the animal's head and release its
grip.
BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) -
The makers of the Quadro
Tracker, a detection device that
government agencies have paid
thousands of dollars for but sci-
entists say is worthless, were in-
dicted on mail fraud charges.
Quadro has sold about 1,000
trackers to school districts, air-
ports and law enforcement agen-
cies nationwide at prices from
$395 up to $8,000. It is suppos-
edly able to detect items ranging
from illicit drugs to explosives to
lost golf balls.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -
A man hurt by a letter bomb that
exploded in his hands more than
a decade ago has sued
Unabomber suspect Theodore
Kaczynski.
Former University of Michi-
gan student Nicklaus Suino, 36,
alleges Kaczynski inflicted burns,
hearing loss and emotional an-
guish by sending the mail bomb
in 1985.
His suit, filed Friday in
Vashtenaw County Circuit Court,
seeks at least10,000 in damages.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The
families of Ronald Goldman and
Nicole Brown Simpson joined the
news media to seek television cov-
erage of O.J. Simpson's civil
wrongful death trial.
A request to the Los Angeles
County Superior Court argued
that televising the trial ensures
fairness. National television net-
works, including CNN and Court
TV, broadcast live, gavel-to-gavel
coverage of Simpson's criminal
trial, in which he was acquitted
of Goldman and Ms. Simpson's
1994 slayings.
LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) - For
most of Virginia Military
Institute's 157 years, new recruits
have been welcomed to a campus
orientation from hell called the
"rat line a boot camp where boys
became cadets.
A ruling by the U.S. Supreme
Court, however, means that this
year's rat line will be the last for
VM1 as a publicly supported
school for men only.
Heads shaved and standing
at attention, 392 young men be-
gin a seven-month ordeal that
tests the limits of their physical,
emotional and mental endurance
by marching into a courtyard and
following upperclassmen's orders.
The cadets, called rats, are treated
as such to ensure that all first-year
students are treated equally.
Joyner Library well received
Students speak
favorably of
additions
Jacqueline D. Kellum
Senior Writer
The new Joyner Library addition
has been open for a few weeks and
students and faculty have had a
chance to familiarize themselves with
the new building.JfC asked library
patrons for their opinions on the new
library, which overall were favorable.
Most people questioned said that
there were some problems right now,
but they expected those problems to
iron out in time and were pleased with
the library.
Jeffrey Watson, who is a gradu-
ate student and also works in the li-
brary, said he definitely saw the addi-
tion as an improvement
"I love it. It's high tech and it's
getting people where they need to go
and getting the knowledge that they
need to learn. They have new study
rooms, and you can have more privacy.
There's more places that you can go
where you can be alone and block out
everyone else Watson said.
"There are more computers, so
people can do more with that. There's
definitely more space; it's a more re-
laxed atmosphere, and they have the
private study rooms said Jennifer
Brown, a junior majoring in occupa-
tional therapy.
There were some comments on
the confusion created by the fact that
the library is still in a transition phase,
and some things are still being moved.
"A lot of students come in and
don't know where to go, but that's to
be expected because it's a new addi-
tion Watson said. "Right now it isn't
more convenient, but when they fin-
ish building it wiii be more convenient
more high tech, more accessible and
easier for people to get information
"You kind of get lost at times. I've
tried to look up a couple of books and
couldn't find them Brown said.
Dr. Elizabeth S. Knott, an asso-
ciate professor in the School of Edu-
cation, agreed with tne students in-
terviewed.
"It's so new that I haven't had
much chance to spend time over here,
and it's in transition now, so some

ECU represented at
national symposium
Professor to 'mix
medicine and law'
in Columbia, SC
Jacqueline D. Kellum
Senior Writer
Dr. Kenneth A. DeVille of the
ECU School of Medicine will
present a paper at a conference to
be held in Columbia, South Caro-
lina.
The conference, entitled
"Money and Medicine: Mother's Milk
or Witch's Brew?" explores the is-
sue of how economical pressures are
affecting the medical profession.
"The conference is an attempt
to come to terms with the market
mentality that seems to affect medi-
cine DeVille said. "It's sort of a mix
of medicine and law
DeVille will be addressing more
of the legal rather than medical rami-
fications of these issues. He has a
law degree from the University of
Texas and a Ph.D. in Medical His-
tory and Ethics from Rice Univer-
sity in Houston.
DeVille said that this issue is
one of great concern to the medical
community and may eventually
cause reforms in matters such as li-
ability in medical practice.
The catalyst for this current de-
bate is the increasing use of cost
containment practices imposed by
managed care organizations (MCOs)
in an attempt to keep medical costs
down. Doctors are expected to en-
force these cost-containment rules,
and thus put themselves at risk for
liability suits if something goes
wrong with their patient.
"There is a concern that these
cost-containment measures may put
patients at more risk. Will it also put
doctors at risk for more liability?"
Deville said.
Deville said that some alterna-
tives to that problem have been dis-
cussed, and he addresses those al-

Net offers jobs to graduates
Job search
program exposes
opportunities
Scott Hopkins
News Writer
Students now have a faster and
more accessible way of finding
openings in today's growing job
market. GradQuest, an Internet
based job search program created
by Decisive Quest Inc. (DQI), has
been created with college graduates
in mind.
"College students are faced
with many options as they approach
the job market. With GradQuest
students are able to control the job
search and have increased exposure
to the market Gary Slagel, chief
executive officer of Decisive Quest
said.
This service reverses the pro-
cess of the job search. By access-
ing the GradQuest Internet site and
downloading the program software,
students can begin the search pro-
cess with their tailored job resume.
"This software is very straight
forward and easy to use Slagel
said.
The software creates a fill-in-
the- blank format which allows the
student to plug in relevant informa-
tion including credentials, experi-
ence, interests and preferences.
The format creates a personal pro-
file or "resume" for students to
place on the DQI's nationally reg-
istered database.
Students' personal profiles can
be continuously updated, and the
student is kept in contact with the
progress of their search via e-mail.
" Companies have the access
to search through thousands of pro-
spective employees, where before
they could only access those who
sought out their company Slagel
said.

Refunds may offset
cost of tuiton
CPS-President Clinton has pro-
posed introducing a $1,500 tax credit
for college students, who then could use
the money to offset tuition costs.
In a commencement speech at
Princeton University. President Clinton
said the proposed program, or
"America's HOPE Scholarships would
"open the doors of college opportunity
for every American
The tax credit would be available
for students during their first two years
of school.
"We should say to Americans who
want to go to college, 'We will give you
a tax credit to pay the cost of tuition at
the average community college for your
first year, or you can apply the same
amount to the first year in a four- year
university or college the president said.
Students who earn a B average and
stay off drugs would receive the same
amount of support for the second year,
he said.
According to U.S. Department of
Education sta-

If President Clinton's proposal succeeds, the "America's Hope
Scholarship" fund which offers up to $1,500 in tax credit for families
with college students, will work like other need-based scholarships.
tistics, the tu-
ition at com-
munity colleges
in all but 17
states is less
than $1,500.
The tax credit
would essen-
tially make it
free for stu-
dents to attend
such two-year
schools.
The presi-
dent chal-
lenged the
other 17 states
to "close the
gap" and re-
duce tuition
costs.
The full
$1,500 tax credit would be available for
students whose families earn $80,000
or less, and a partial credit would be
given to families who earn between
$80,000 and $100,000. Tiose families
earning more than $100,000 would not
be eligible.
Republican leaders were quick to
"And by
tomorrow, he's
going to have a
tax-cut package.
Remember, he
told you that in
'92, and then
gave you a big,
big tax increase,
so you can read
between the
lines
� Bob Dole
call the program an election-year stunt
During a speech in Michigan the
same day, GOP presidential-hopeful Bob
Dole harshly criticized the president's
proposal.
"And by tomor-
row, he's going to
have a tax-cut pack-
age Remember, he
told you that in '92,
and then gave you a
big, big tax increase,
so you can read be-
tween the lines Dole
said.
Dole and his staff
were reportedly work-
ing on a plan that
would call for a 15
percent across-the-
board tax cut
"The words this
president speaks have
very little to do with
the actions he takes
Dole added. "Put sim-
ply, he talks right and
runs left"
Cynthia Metzler, acting deputy of
U.S. Labor Secretary, said, "That's not
true because the president has been
very concerned and willing) to increase
opportunities for learning and lifelong
learning
The more education Americans
have, the more likely they are to have
higher wages, better benefit and pen-
sion plans she said.
The president has already re-
quested a $10,000 tax reduction for
college tuition in his balanced budget
plan. The proposed $1,500 tax credit
and $10,000 tax deduction plan would
cost an estimated $43 billion over six
years.
The White House said the programs
would be financed by squeezing add
tional revenue from current export sales
taxes, adding a $16 airport passenger
departure fee for international flights and
auctioning off radio frequencies.

On Wednesday, Sept 11, between 2:15 a.m. and 2:40 a.m two male students were approached by a group
of white males in the parking lot area south of Fletcher Hall. One of the male students was assaulted resulting
in serious bodily injury. The second student was able to get away unharmed. It is believed that the group of
males were in the area of the telephone booth, south of Fletcher Hall, prior to the assault
Between 5 p.m Sept 13 and 11 a.m. Sept 16, person(s) unknown broke into a white state vehicle south of
�the Flanagan Building and removed several tools and other items. Stolen property and damage is estimated at
:$1000.
Anyone with information about these crimes or other crimes should contact The PittGreenville Crime
Stoppers at 758-7777 or The ECU Police Department at 328-6787. A reward up to $2500 is available for informa-
tion that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible. And remember, you do not have to give
your name.
Correction
An article in last Tuesday's TEC entitled "Playhouse prepares for productions" reported that "most plays cost
about $400 to make, but Big River cost about $4000. An ECU Playhouse representative told TEC that the $400
and $4000 refer to royalties, or permission to do the productions. "The actual budget for these productions runs
into the tens of thousands

ternatives in his paper, entitled
"Physicians, Cost-Containment and
Medical Malpractice: Scapegoats lor
the Organization?"
"The significance of the subtitle
is that it's a question. Are the doc-
tors going to be the scapegoats for
the organizations? Will they bear
the brunt of the liability burden?"
Deville said.
One of the proposed plans of
action to combat doctors' concerns
would include changing the mal-
practice rules to take the doctors'
constraints into consideration when
evaluating malpractice suits.
"Should physicians be able to
use cost containment measures as
some kind of defense?" DeVille said.
There may be a change in mal-
practice rules which would hold the
MCOs equally accountable for any
kind of malpractice which may re-
sult from their rules. This would be
called enterprise liability
NET
from page 1
"It's an idea that would hold the
institution or plan liable, and not the
individual physicians DeVille said.
Another possibility, DeVille
said, would be to allow the rules to
stay the same and let the case law
adjust itself gradually with each new
case. He said that was the view
which he leaned toward in his pa-
per.
"It mostly presents the issues,
and suggests the strong and weak
points of each issue. I'll probably
suggest a less fundamental change.
But there maybe a necessity to al-
low plans to be liable
In addition to presenting his pa-
per, Dr. DeVille will serve on a dis-
cussion panel at the conference,
which will be held October fourth
and fifth. Drs. Loretta M. Kopelman
and John MosKop of the F.CU School
of Medicine will also attend the con-
ference and will serve as moderators
during discussions.

things are in the new building, some
ire in the old building, but it is a lot
nicer atmosphere to be in Knott said.
! When students were asked what
they thought about the design of the
Hbrary, everyone said they liked it, but
there were varying opinions as to
vvhether it was a good use of money.
; "It really depends on whether
they're going to design ine old part
to look like this part Watson said.
"I think it's very attractive. 1
think maybe it's good because maybe
it will attract more people to come
here, so I don't think it's a waste of
money said Mandy Grooms, a jun-
ior in secondary education.
Knott agreed that the look of the
library was an important part of the
overall effect and would help make it
a nice place to study.
"The library is a place on the
campus where a lot of students and
faculty spend a lot of time, and mak-
ing it visually interesting makes it a
nicer place to come to Knott said.
The question was asked, more
than once, if there were plans to reno-
vate the old library building so that it
would more closely match the new
addition, but library administrators
could not be reached to answer that
question.

Man accused of attack at University of South Florida
A man accused of breaking into Gamma Hall, at USF. and holding a
student at knifepoint in a shower faced his second competency trial yester-
day. . . .
Eric Holmes was brought to trial to decide wether or not he is mentally
fit to stand trial. At press time, a decision was not final. If Holmes is found
incompetent he will return to a mental hospital.
Holmes was arrested Jan. 10 after returning to Gamma Hall and threat-
ening a student with a knife, the same one he used the day before. He was
charged with burglary and trespassing and two counts of aggravated as-
Nine USF students have been subpoenaed to testify against Holmes if

cap and a shorts set
From her room, fallon called a friend and the University Police. The UP

column is the similar because we agreed on the
topic, but different in the sense that we couldn't
come up with a majority on either side of the issue
at hand. This opinion column will be unique be-
cause it will try to address both sides equally.
The issue is gay marriages. Should the govern-
ment recognize same-sex marriages? Should society
recognize same-sex marriages?
Neither churches nor the court system agree
whether same-sex marriages should receive recog-
nition.
Last Saturday, a church which approves of ho-
mosexuality swore in 12 men and one woman as
deacons and priests. Rev. Craig Bettendorf, the man
who conducted the ceremony, said in Sunday's is-
sue of The Daily Reflector, "Your the newly ap-
pointed priests' message will be like a bright light
too difficult for others to bear
On the same day of that religious ceremony was
the Down East Pride Festival in the Town Commons.
The festival was led by gay men and women in an
effort to educate the community about issues relat-
ing to their choice of lifestyle. Bettendorf, who was
also the guest speaker at the festival, voiced his dis-
gust with the Southern Baptist Convention's boy-
cott of Walt Disney due to the anti-gay policies held
by the convention.
But not everyone agrees with Bettendorf.
Marriage has traditionally been the uniting of a
man and a woman in holy matrimony under the eyes
of God. Shortly after marriage, one thinks of hav-
ing a family. Same-sex marriages cannot biologically
create children; therefore, children must be adopted
or artificially conceived. The court system in the
United States is currently battling the legality of
cases concerning gay partners attempting to adopt.
It is not. natural for homosexuals to be parents.
Most people think of a nuclear family as a father, a
mother and the children. Not two fathers or two
mothers and the children. Besides, how could a
young boy have a masculine role model with two
mothers in the household? How would two dads feel
about talking sex with their daughter?
The Editorial Board of TEC was evenly divided
on the issue of same-sex marriages. By presenting
both sides of the topic, we encourage interested read-
ers to evaluate their own personal andor religious
beliefs and make their decision in an educated and
responsible manner.
Like society
itself, the
Editorial Board
of TEC is a
diverse group of
individuals. We
agreed on the
topic of same-
sex marriages,
but the opinion
of the staff split
right down the
middle.
iffrne against nature, Part II
U
To the Editor,
Homosexuality is a crime against
nature!
Plus, the Bible plainly states in
the NEW TESTAMENT of all places
that neither fornicators, nor idola-
ters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate
nor abusers of themselves with man-
kind shall inherit the kingdom of
God
You may say the above is not re-
ferring to homosexuals, but if any of
you college-traine& ding-bats have any
common sense at all you can easily
deduce that if a fornicator or adulterer
won't make it then you can take it to
the bank that a homosexual wont be
in God's soon coining Kiagdooi!
Now 1 read in a hcas paper
(Greenville, NC) of how the homosexu-
als proclaimed that they had gotten
the last word because that somehow
God smiled down upon their gay-pride
festival (Sept. 14, 19) with good
weather which somehow show that
God appro -es of all their atamina-
tions.
You accuse people like me of be-
ing ignorant, but YOU are the ones
whe are ignorant of God and the kind
of conduct He demands and expects
from creatures made in His Likeness
and Image!
Do you realize what Saturday,
Sept 14 1996 was? Do all of you ho-
mosexuals and everybody else for that
matter know that this day was a very
very special day to God and His True
Saints?
This is the Day which is listed in
the Bible in Leviticus 23 as the High
Sabbath Day know by True Christians
as the FEAST OF TRUMPETS. Be-
lieve me if God gave us good weather
it was because He was Pleased with
His True Saints who kept this double
Sabbath (the Feast of Trumpets fell
on a weekly Sabbath this year) and
not with some arrogant degenerate
perverts!
The Jews call this day-Rosh
Hoshanah. The New Testament
Church before it was overrun by Anti-
Semitic Gentiles kept this Holy Day.
The small remnant of us that were
forced out of the early Church, which
has survived over the centi ries as
Jesus Christ promised, still do. This

GUC: Still a bully
Dorm life was great and then
again, it sucked. It was great because
you had no bills to speak of, like a
utility bill. It sucked because a dorm
room is like a cage for us studious
iii' pigeons. So, eventually the bird
must be free to fly with the collegiate
flock to greener pastures. That
means an apartment! Yippy skippy,
you can take flight anytime you want
and land as late as is possible. Yet
for every flock of birds, there is a
hunter. The double-barrel shotgun
toting Elmer Fudd in this neck of the
woods is the Greenville Utility Com-
mission.
See, God gave humans electric-
ity and water. These are things that
are now bare necessities. Now, ap-
parently God left a clause in the wa-
ter and electricity contract, saying
that utility commissions are holy em-
issaries sent to Earth to police these
two things, thus making necessity a
commodity-a transformation that
capitalists perfected.
The GUC kind of reminds me of
a bully amed Tom back in grade
school. He used to stand in the bath-
room and make kids give him their
lunch money to use the bathroom.
Tom had his own form of capitalism.
If you had to do a "number one he'd
only charge 50 cents. But, if you had
to do the doodoo, you weren't go-
ing to eat that day. That's sounds a
lot like my relationship with GUC
t-nHav.
Yeah, so there was this hurricane
this past weekend and the lights went
out for a while. My fish almost die
Anthony Slacte
Opinion CdumnM
from lack of oxygen and the $150
worth of food I had just bought was
rotting away. Tick-tock, no utility
commission! Well, I decide that I'm
gonna pay these wily cats a visit,
right?
So I walk right in the front door
with my grocery bill in one hand and
my matchbox-coffin full of fish in the
other. I say to the lady at the front
desk, "Hey! I want to be compen-
sated for my losses She looks at
me and replies, "I am very concerned
about your well-being and I want to
help. What exactly is the problem?"
I clear my throat, smile and come
back with this, "Well, you guys are a
little behind in getting the lights back
on and this is my late fee that I'm
charging you The next part is what
sent me reeling into vertigo. The lady
tells me that I'll need to speak to a
customer representative. Well, who
in the hell are you, and why am I"
talking to you then!? (This is what�
I'm thinking.) I storm out of the
building frothing and quite irate.
Ah! I almost forgot! The lady
at GUC also asked me for my con-
sideration in this difficult situation
Well, where was GUC's compassion
and understanding when my bill was
late?
The whole problem here is the
fact that a company can mandate
something I need. That's called a
monopoly, and GUC is Mr. Money-
bags. He controls the air, flushes,
what turns on and what turns up. It's
all figured out in a kilowatt to hour
ratio, and you don't have any say in
the charge. It is your duty to come
up with the cash, and if you don't
it's "Lights out, uh-huh, yeah, yeah,
yeah Tough, but true. Now, it is
tough to be a full-time student and
make these bills, but those are the
rules and you are trampled by them
It's all about taxation, my
friends. If you're cold, they tax the
heat If you are hot, they tax the
breeze (check out the Beatles some-
time.) So, next time you see a guy
driving around in a GUC truck, give
him the finger, because he's probably
going to ruin somebody's milk
Sometimes I think that Tom the
Bully is sitting atop that looming
building on 5th Street, just raising
the ante higher and higher to live
peacefully. It brings to mind a new
name for GUC: Greenville Utility
CONTROL (it wasn't easy typing this
by candlelight).

Zeus attacks Carolina coast
To the Editor,
Recently, Mr. Donald Wheatley
wrote that hurricanes Fran and Ber-
tha were due to God's disenchant-
ment with homosexual crimes against
nature in North Carolina. Mr.
Wheatley was frightfully close to the
Truth. The recent hurricanes were su-
pernatural punishment, just not from
a Christian god. They were actually
invoked by the great God Zeus and
the Lord of the winds and seas,
Poseidon. Zeus and Poseidon are
expressing their extreme discontent
with the worship of the false deities
- Jesus and Jehovah.
How often do you hear of de-
structive hurricanes in the Mediter-
ranean (the home of the true Gods)?
Twice this season. Jesus-infected east-
ern North Carolina has been ravaged
by such storms. Mr. Wheatley fails
to see the big picture. The Gods don't
stop at hurricanes. Did you ever hear
of nuclear weapons, global warming,
or AIDS in ancient Greece where
people understood who the true
Gods were?
Repent infidels and direct your
worship back toward Mt. Olympus
where it belongs. We believe Zeus will
remove all storms and modem plagues
if you cast these false idols out of your
homes and schools. You don't need
Jesus to banish your fears of death,
restrict your mind, suffocate your will,
and feed your hatred of non-conform-
ists. We've had the solutions to those
problems for thousands of years.

Man, am I proud to be a
Southerner. No really. I'll tell
you why.
In this area of the United
States, we've got more idiotic,
backwards, close-minded, un-
sympathetic, no-common-sense
morons grouped together than
anywhere else. Heck, we've
even got D.C New York and
Los Angeles beat.
Want proof? Well, for one
we keep on putting Strom
Thurmond and Jesse Helms
back in office. Their policies
were old and outdated before
all of us younguns reading this
paper were even born.
Also, a shamefully large
percentage of us feel that drap-
ing a sheet over our heads and
yelling out "nigger" or "kike"
or "faggot" every other word
is our God-given duty.
In fact, the belief that we
were screwed in the Civil War
is so prevalent and pervasive
that it's impossible to go a day
without seeing one of those
damn rebel flags, whether it's
on someone's butt, waist, chest,
head, back, crotch, car, bike,
house or pet.
(Dramatic pause)
I'm growing misty-eyed
with pride.
But those choice tidbits
above are iust the tip of the ice-
berg. You want a really good ex-
ample of the standard type of
religio-political brain fart that
our esteemed southern think-
ers conceive of on a regular
basis?
Controversy abounds be-
cause this past weekend the
Down East Pride Festival was
held here in town. Despite the
fact that the festival was a
peaceful affair with music,
food, guest speakers and work-
shops on everything from "Liv-
ing Well in the Age of AIDS"
to "Overcoming Internalized
Oppression people have criti-
cized the gay community for
stirring up trouble and creat-
ing havoc in Greenville.
You know the kind of
people I'm talking about.
They're the kind that say
things like, "That kind of stuff
ain't supposed to happen here
in tne South. God will have his
vengeance on those heathens
It goes on and on.
What exactly are gay
people doing to straight
people? I went to the festival,
and nowhere did I see hate-
mongering amongst the partici-
pants. No one was trying to
rally homosexuals together in
order to tear down the straight
community, far from it. Most
were actually fighting for ac-
ceptance, or at the very least,
tolerance. All fought against
prejudice and oppression.
Yet they are still attacked.
God forbid that anyone would
try to solve a controversy with

ECU is a growing university that
has much to offer its student popula-
tion and the Greenville community.
One can enjoy everything from the
excitement of Pirate football to the
drama of the ECU Thespians of Di-
versity.
One ECU tradition that has been
around for over 30 years continues
to grow along with the university: the
ECU Poetry Forum.
Founded in 1965 by Vernon
, 'ard, the Poetry Forum has become
a 1 nowned creative outlet for accom-
plisi ed and aspiring poets. According
to Forum Director and ECU English
professor Peter Makuck, the Forum
has become "an ECU institution with
a noble tradition
Within the Forum, anyone who
is willing to share his or her own po-
ems can benefit from both encourage-
ment and criticism.
"Students don't realize how lucky
they are to have the Forum said

Derek T. Hall
Senior Writer
Have you ever been experi-
enced? If you haven't, you should
have been at the Attic Saturday
night. The Gibb Droll Band was the
most explosive show that I have
seen there thus far.
It was amaz-
ing. From the
moment Gibb
stepped on the
stage, you could
feel his energy
as if it came
from a higher
power.
And a higher power it was. I
couldn't believe how well Gibb had
the crowd entertained. Everyone
was mesmerized. He played just as
many old tunes as new ones. It re-
ally didn't matter which tune he
played, they all jammed.
Trust me, it must have been a
tough night for the band. They had
played the lawn party at N.C. State

popularity with the large outbreak of
coffeehouses across the nation, he still
sees the Poetry Forum as being es-
sential for any serious writer. As op-
posed to a coffeehouse reading, where
people share their works with little
critical feedback, the Forum opens up
a "round table" where there is criti-
cism with no intimidation.
"As opposed to the coffeehouse
environment, our forum gives poets
the benefit of everyone else who is at
the table Makuck points out. Here
a poet can get feedback from many
different types of writers, including
well-published poets, local towns-
people and ECU faculty
Makuck also stresses that the Fo-
rum is an ideal environment for infor-
mation sharing. "People share infor-
mation about publishing. People tell
one another about new magazines on
the market as well as specialized pub-
lications that look for poems about
certain subjects or themes
Since the Poetry Forum has got-
ten strong support from the Student
Government Association and the ECU
English Department, it has been able
to invite such nationally renowned
poets as William Stafford. Carolyn
Kizer and Louise Simpson, all Na-
tional Book Award and Pulitzer Prize
winners. With accomplished writers
such as these attending the work-
shops, the Forum continually proves
to be a fruitful outing for all those
involved.
And the fact that Dr. Makuck is
a published poet, who not only
Peter Makuck
teaches poetry classes but also is the
editor for the prestigious Tar River
Poetry journal, is an added bonus.
The ECU Poetry Forum normally
meets on the first and third Wednes-
day of each month during the aca-
demic year in Room 248 of the Men-
denhall Student Center at 8 p.m. This
year's fa!1 schedule is as follows: Sept
18, Oct. 2. Oct. 16, Nov. 6 and Nov.
20.
Anyone who wishes to attend the
Forum should bring eight to ten cop-
ies of each poem he or she wishes to
have discussed. The meetings are free
and open to listeners as well.
So, if you're a fan of poetry, then
let your creative muse be heard. Sup-
port the Poetry Forum and keep this
ECU tradition alive and well.

However, they weren't complaining.
If anything, they were just glad to
be back.
"I miss coming here said Gibb
in a personal sort of way. I could
tell that he loves Greenville. People
respond to him here. It's not hype,
it's respect. And that's what any se-

other not too long ago.

Right from the start, 1 need to
clear something up. We all know
that music reviewers are supposed
to be unbiased, and while I try to
be as much as possible, 1 don't al-

the regional band, Dag. I've seen
them twice, and while they aren't

Why am I telling you all this?
Well, every single time I see any-

John Woo, one of Hong Kong's
greatest action directors, was the es-
sential element that made Hard Tar-
get Jean-Claude Van Damme's great-
est movie. While Van Damme is not
known for making great films. Hard
Target proved to be a mindless joy
ride filled with Woo's staple visual
flair.
Well, Van Damme once again
turns to Hong Kong for help with
his latest action vehicle, Maximum
Risk, by letting Asian action guru
Ringo Lam take the director's char.
Unfortunately, even Lam can't keep
Maximum Risk from simply being
lame.
The plot, written by Larry
Ferguson, tries to he clever by some-
what toying with the question of
identity, but it fails miserably. Van
Damme plays Alain Moreau, a
French police officer who discovers
that he has a twin brother. Mikhail,
when his sibling is murdered.
In an effort to find his brother's
killers. Moreau flies to America and
masquerades as Mikhail, who hap-
pens to be involved with the Rus-
sian mob. Along the way. Moreau
teams up with Mikhail's lover, Alex
(played by Natasha Henstridge). The
rest of the film involves one unin-
teresting plot twist after another,
along with one uninspiring action
sequence after another.
Van Damme is not a good actor
by any stretch of the imagination,
and his films typically suck brain
cells from their viewers. Still, John
Woo proved that a little talent can
go a long way. Woo. unlike other
Van Damme directors, used his cam-
era to its fullest to create some beau-
tifully choreographed, over-thetop
action sequences, making Hard Tar-
get fun.
With Ringo Lam (who is best
known for his crime thriller City on
Fire) standing behind the camera,
one would hope for an action flick
with some spice, something other
than the massive garbage that Hol-
lywood is constantly flushing down
the cinematic toilet. Unfortunately,
Lam doesn't display any distinguish-
ing talent that makes this his film.
As it stands. Maximum Risk is just
another forgettable Van Damme joke
that is destined to be repeatedly
shown on TBS on Saturday nights.
Visually. Maximum Risk is com-
petent but not engaging. No nifty
slow motion effects, no creative
lighting designs, no eye-catching
camera shots, no nothing.
As for the action seauences,
which is what sells a Van Damme
film, none are memorable. A bath-
house brawl featuring Van Damme
in a small towel has potential but
only ends up being laughable.
A major problem with Maxi-
mum Risk centers around the fact
that it is so concerned with its plot
that it never really cuts loose. The
action Likes much too long to get

f AP) - Youv body aches; You've
got the chills. Your fever is soar-
ing. And you're not sure V�u can
drag yourself to the office.
Sounds like influenza. And if
you've ever had it, you know you'd
do anything to avoid it again.
The bad news: no flu preven-
tion method is bulletproof. Even flu
shots only have a 60 to 70 percent
success rate in preventing infec-
tion.
So what can you do? Well, the
best advice is pretty basic.
First, get a flu shot.
Many people have the mistaken
impression that flu shots are for the
elderly and infirm. In fact, the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and Pre-
vention say that influenza vaccines
can prevent illness in 70 to 90 per-
cent of healthy adults younger than
65.
Flu shots generally become
available in October. Check with
your doctor or community clinic.
Some companies offer free shots to
employees.
Next, take care of yourself.
Do the basics: get enough
sleep, eat a balanced diet, and en-
joy moderate exercise. There's a lot
to be said for simply making sure
you're healthy. Does this guaran-
tee you won't get the flu? No, but
it may mean your immune system
is stronger and better able to fight
off the attack of influenza viruses.
Some people look for addi-
tional insurance whenever flu sea-
son rolls around.
Just take a look
at the products
in shopping bas-
kets this winter.
"Typically,
two-thirds of the
vitamin products
we sell in an en-
tire year are sold
during the win-
ter flu months
says Robert Kay,
PhD, a nutri-
tional research
director at one of
the nation's larg-
est manufacturer of vitamin prod-
ucts. "Clearly, more Americans look
to vitamin products to promote
good health. First, however, eat a
healthy diet. Then, consider vita-
mins to supplement the foods you
eat
The most popular "flu fighters"
include:
1) Vitamin C.
Ever since Linus Pauling first
did research with Vitamin C, con-
sumers have been interested in this
nutrient which is found in many
fruits and vegetables. Recent Na-
tional Institutes of Health research
suggests that the Recommended
Daily Allowance for Vitamin C be
increased to 200 milligrams a day
- a 300 percent
increase.
2) Antioxi-
dant Supple-
ments.
Exposure
of our bodies to
certain condi-
tions can cause
the formation
of free radicals
that may in-
crease cell dam-
age. Recent
studies identify
new evidence
on the benefits
of eating diets rich in antioxidants.
Finally, take influenza seriously.
Remember that an average of
20,000 people die each year from
the flu. Many of us equate flu with
the common cold. It can be much
more serious, leading to other con-
ditions such as pneumonia.
If you get the flu, stay home and
take the time to get well. Drink
plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest,
and eat nourishing foods. Some doc-
tors recommend that you stay home
a full 24 hours after your fever sub-
sides.

MONEY from page 7
credit record is during their early
years in college.
When looking for a bank at
which to open an account, keep this
in mind: every bank you visit wants
your business, so don't go inside
their building uninformed. One sug-
gestion is to go to the bank with a
list of questions.
Some of the questions to be ad-
dressed include the following:
Is there a flat monthly fee for
the checking account?
Is there a limit on the number
of checks written monthly?
Does the account come with an
ATM card'
If so, are the bank's
1. Bob Hope and Bing Crosby
made umpteen million "Road"
pictures together. Who was
their lead female co-stai in
these films?
2. Katherine Hepburn and
Spencer Tracy were on-screen!
as well as off-screen, lovers. In
how many movies did they
appear together?
3. What is the name of the film
in which Cyd Charrisse and
Fred Astaire dance their way
through the trials of a Broad-
way show?
4. In which western did Jack
Nicholson and Marion Brando
first share the screen together?
5. During the filming of which
movie did on-screen couple
Lauren Bacall and Humphrey
Bogart truly fall in love off-
screen?
6. In which movie about allied
PCWs during yVWII does Steve
McQueen steal the thunder
from co-stars James Garner
and Richard Attenborough
when he makes a daring es-
cape on a motorcycle?
Answers will appear in
Thursday's issue.
ATM machines
close to campus?
Is there a' 1-800" number to call
for 24 hour account information?
Is over-draft protection available
on the account?
Out-of-state students who open
a local checking account may need
to be more informed that their in-
state counterparts. For instance, at
some banks when an out-of-state
check is processed into a checking
account it takes four to five business
days from the time the check is de-
posited to the time it shows up in
the appropriate account.
However, not all banks follow
this procedure. Other banks give stu-
dent accounts immediate credit for
checks up to $500, but those checks
must be from the student's parent.
Another financial concern of vi-
tal student interest is credit. Most
credit card companies charge at least
an 18 percent annual percentage rate
which is also the most that they can
legally charge in North Carolina.
Credit card companies are
often dangerous adversaries to
young college students. They
act more like sharks circling
and watching their prey than
they act like a student's
best friend (although
they portray them-
selves as such in
their ads). One
slip-up with a
credit card bill
can stick on a
student's credit
record for up to
seven years.
But banking and credit
aren't the only financial pitfalls await-
ing college freshmen, nor are they
the most dangerous.
Many ECU student funds are
blown on Extra Value Meals, Roast
Beef Specials and Dave's Carolina
Classic Combos. Three dollars here,
four dollars there - it's amazing how
fast it adds up. If you're purchasing
a meal plan, use it. There are several
dining facilities scattered across cam-
pus from which to choose.
To drive or not to drive: is that
the question? You won't be at ECU
long before you discover the parking
woes of faculty members and stu-
dents alike. From a monetary stand-
point, there is one singular choice:
don't drive.
ECU is currently in pursuit of
creating a "pedestrian only" campus.
With this in mind, parking lots are
shrinking and parking sticker prices
will only get more expensive as each
semester passes.
Another thing to keep in mind
are tickets. Many people who do drive
to campus have been blessed with at �
least a few parking tickets. If these
tickets are not paid, the student can-
not register for classes until they
have a clean record with ECU Public
Safety.
Most activities, extracurricular
and otherwise, are easily within walk-
ing distance from any dorm, so driv-
ing is not an absolute necessity.
And don't forget to save money
for textbooks every semester. You
have to take classes, too, after all.
Freshmen face plenty of chal-
lenges at ECU without having to
worry about money and following
these tips could help you avoid the
biggest traps set in your path.

Look), it was over the top. He knew
exactly where he needed to fill in
and just when to step up. 1 was very
impressed. So was Gibb. It was the
first time I'd ever seen him stop
playing to watch someone else per-
form. You could tell he was proud.
Also on the card that night was
Doug Wannamaker on organ and
horns. This man has graced the
stage with bands like Everything
and Dave Matthews. He's been
around. It was a real bonus to see
him there.
Speaking of a bonus, one of the
most amazing solos the audience
saw that night was from one of our
own. Jesse. Purple Schoolbus' long
time keyboardist, took the crowd by
storm. He fit in so well that it
seemed as if he were a member of
the band and had been there be-
fore. Maybe it has something to do
with growing up with Mathis,
Gibb's keyboardist. Mathis is awe-
some; however, he didn't mind step-
ping aside to let everyone see where
Jesse was coming from. Pete and
Jesse, now that was a hell of a show-
down on keys.
If you'll notice. I did say that
Jesse's solo was "one" of the best
that we saw that evening. Inevita-
bly. Gibb left everyone's mouth
open in awe of his new "behind the
back" technique. It was like noth-
ing I'd ever seen before. He spun
the guitar behind his back (not over
his shoulder) and played an unbe-
lievable ten-minute solo with nis
left hand only.
As the night came to a close, I
could only hope for more, and be-
lieve it or not he did two encores.
He blew my mind along with every-
one else's who was at the jam-
packed event. The good thing is
that he's getting ready to do an-
other album. It's double good be-
cause it's live. And 1 don't know of
another form of representation that
best suits this band. When it comes
out, I know I'll be experienced. Will

it in the South where hatred, intol-
erance and disdain are the rule.
Or so it would seem.
Despite all my ranting and rav-
ing about the poor state of things
in the South, 1 am proud to be a

friends.
Friends who are not hetero-

who are not racist, but friends who
are nevertheless Southern.
Because of the very fact that
my Southern friends and I exist, we

Defenders of the Universe
(which, by the way, is the censored
title - see the CD itself foi the
whole title or just add a key word)
starts off with a song that definitely
sets the pace for the rest of the al-
bum "Whose Side You On?It's
about a person affected with para-
noia sharing his impressions oWiim-
self with a telephone operator. This
is an unusual topic to say the least,
but the song is musically sound and
draws the listener deeper into the
world of Dig.
Maybe I should stop now to ex-
plain a little about the world of Dig.
These guys (Scott Hackwith, Jon
Morris, Phil Friedmann, Matt Tecu
and Dix Denney) aren't your usual
California band members trying to
fight their way up from living en
the streets.
In fact, Hackwith, the
songwriter for the band, produced
the Ramones album Acid Eaters, a
collection of old rock songs done
in the typical punk fashion of the
band. This fact alone helps to ex-
plain a little about the subject mat-
ter for Defenders of the Universe.
Like the Ramones and their diverse
interests. Dig's songs range in topic
from the aforementioned "Whose
Side to game shows, to killing a
lover.
The main thing that Dig has go-
ing for them is their ability to craft
catchy songs. Nearly all of the
songs on the album have neat little
guitar hooks or rhythm grooves
that make you not really care what
the song is about because it rocks
anyway.
For example, "Song For Liars"
makes little sense on the surface.
Yet, it's so infectiously catchy that
you will be singing along despite
yourself after only hearing the song
a couple of times.
"Little Pill however, seem? o
open up the band's lyrical range:
"Take your hand and shove it in
A rubber glove And reach inside
my body And pull out my self con-
trol and We'll lay it on the table
For everyone to see 1 am just a
little pill It takes six to make you
high While I'm not exactly sure
what the message is, there's defi-1
nitely one in there. ,
The song offers an opportunity ,
for every listener to have a differ-
entlnterpretation of it, and this ac
tually shows talent on the part of
Dig. Anybody can write lyrics that
spell out everything for you. Writ-
ing one that leaves the interpreta-
tions up to the listener puts the
band in a group with other lyrical
geniuses like Pink Floyd.
Another album highlight is
"Stop Holding Your Breath a tasty
acoustic offering that shows the
musical diversity of the band. Dig
repeatedly interjects tracks that
contain different guitar sounds and
effects in order to change the flow
of the music and keep it fresh.
All in all, Defenders of the Uni-
verse is one of those albums that!
only gets better the more you play
it. Having listened to it three times;
already, I'm totally hooked. Hope
fully, Dig will manage to stand out
among all the other Buzz Bin art
ists on MTV and actually get people:
to give them a chance.
fvlolv from page 6
going, and once it does it never plays
out to its fullest. Admittedly, Lam's
City on Fire is much more plot-ori-
ented than Woo's Hard Boiled or
The Killer. Maybe Lam is the type
of director who strives to develop
characters and plot. But let's not kid
ourselves; this is Jean-Claude Van
Damme, not Harrison Ford. When
it comes to Van Damme, your best
bet is to ignore any elements of a
plot and just let Van Damme kick
butt.
Now, Maximum Risk does pro-
vide some laughs, but these laughs
don't seem to be intentional.
Moreau's relationship with a cab
driver who is writing the great
American novel has no direction; the
sex scene between Moreau and Alex
tries to be steamy but never reaches
climax; and the movie's finale, which
features a chainsaw battle in a pork
slaughterhouse, isn't hammy
enough to cut it.
As boring as I find Jean-Claude
Van Damme, I do applaud his bring-
ing top talents from Hong Kong to
the States. Asian cinema has always
been an exciting alternative to the
American mainstream. Directors like
Lam and Woo have the talent to re
structure the typical Hollywood acj
tion film. Hopefully, Maximum Risk,
is not an indication as to how Lam
will translate in American cinema.
If it is, then my advice to Lam is to
go back to Hong Kong where his tal-
ents can be better utilized.
As for Van Damme, better luck
with your next director. At least you
can crack walnuts with your butt

Tuesday, September 17,1996 The East Carolinian
Decision deserves respect
Questions raised
about play called
at end of game
Dill Dlllard
Amt. Sport Editor
� In the wake of the first loss of
the season for Head Coach Steve
Logan's Pirates, ���
a lot of questions
are being asked.
The most com-
mon of these in-
quiries is
"Should we have
gone for the tie
and sent it into
overtime?"
Well Pirate
fans, I'm going to
put those won-
dering minds to
rest right now.
Win or lose,
there are many
reasons why you
should have to
ECU is on the
road, in a hostile
environment, and
they have just
driven the ball
down West
Virginia's throat
for a possible go
ahead score.
the win and feel good about it.
First of all, at the start of the
season, Logan made no bones about
going for the win opposed to the tie
and putting the game into overtime.
The feeling at media day at ECU was
that Logan and his troops wanted
to win or lose in regulation if given
the opportunity, and they stuck by
it.
Let's face it, if Logan would
have gone for the tie, he would have
gone back on his
word, at the be-
ginning of the
season, as a
coach that would
go for the kill in
regulation.
Plus, what
kind of message
would Logan be
sending to his
players if he
would have gone
for the tie and
lost in overtime?
Granted, his
players respect
his decisions,
but it wouldn't
respect Logan's decision to go for have been a huge morale booster.
You have to also look at the situ-
ation. ECU is on the road, in a hos-
tile environment, and they have just
driven the ball down West Virginia's
throat for a possible go ahead score.
Uh, who has the momentum in this
situation?
ECU clearly had the momen-
tum going into the point after at-
tempt, and when you're locked up
in a physical battle like the game
on Saturday, you have to seize the
opportunities as they come, espe-
cially on the road.
Now granted it is a shame that
the defense, after an excellent
game, was not given the opportu-
nity to stop the Mountaineers in
overtime. With the exception of
turning over the ball in ECU terri-
tory, the Bucs held a potent West
Virginia offense at bay. True, you
can make an argument for going for
the tie. If it works you look like a
genius, but if it doesn't, you're
asked questions about your deci-
sion on Monday.
So, if you look at it closely,
Logan made the right call simply
because he gave his team what he
felt was the best opportunity to win
the ballgame.
Runners compete in first meet
First meet of the
year proves
successful
Zlna Briley

It was a busy weekend for the
cross country teams as ECU hosted
the third annual Overtone's Invita-
tional at Lake Kristi.
� Saturday's race was the first
home meet this season and will be the
last home race until Nov. 2 when the
Pirates host the CAA championships.
Having the home advantage was vital
to getting the Pirates off to a good
start
This was the men's and women's
first meet of the year. A scheduled
Sept 7 meet for the men's team was
canceled so all the runners were
geared up for the beginning of this
season.
The men's race was led by Jamie
Mance, who finished with a time of
25:56.20 over the five mile course
defending his title set last year. Other
top finishers were freshmen Justin
England and Brian Beil, Northeast-
ern (Boston) transfer Andrew Worth
and Jeremy Coleman. The Pirates
dominated the field with nine guys
running under 28:00 for five miles,
which is encouraging for the remain-
ing meets this season. The men, as
well as the women, will compete in
the NCSU Wolfpack Invitational this
weekend.
"This is by far the best depth we
have had men's Coach Mike Ford
said. "The guys are excited about
their performances, but realize that

Dill Dlllard
Aomlmtant Sport editor
To all of those die-hard Pirate Basketball fans,
they're known as the Pure Gold dancers. Now in the
world of the NCAA dance competitors, the ECU dance
team is known as a Division I school with a bid to
the national championships the first week of April
at Daytona Beach, Florida.
The ECU dance team went to dance camp this
L
summer expecting to improve upon last year's squad
and came back with an automatic bid to the Nationals.
For those who don't know the ins and outs of getting
into such competitions, a team has two oppritunities
to mke it. The first way is to go to dance camp in the
summer and earn an automatic bid and if that doesn't
work, they send in tapes to get ranked high enough to
be invited.

Two point

Brian Paiz
Senior Writer
So close.
That thought was echoed from
many Pirate fans on Saturday as
ECU lost to West Virginia in heart-
breaking style 10-9 in front oi over
50,000 fans at Mountaineer field in
Morgantown.
ECU almost pulled the upset
of the Mountaineers when Marcus
Crandell marched ECU 67 yards in
57 seconds. Crandell then found
Lamont Chappell for a 20-yard
touchdown pass with less than 30
seconds to pull the Pirates within
10-9.
Then came the decision. Head
Coach Steve Logan did not hesitate
as he sent Crandell back onto the
field for the two- point conversion
to give ECU the win. Crandell found
Mitch Galloway in the corner of the
end zone, but the pass was just out
of Galloway's reach and WVU held
on for their third victory of the sea-
son. Logan said he did not hesitate
one bit in making the decision to
go for two and the victory.
"I've got one of the best quar-
terbacks in the country, and I'm on
the three-yard line Logan said. "I
did not prolong my decision
The game was a showcase of
two very hard playing defenses that
held the game scoreless at halftime.
ECU jumped on the board first in
the third quarter when Pirate
kicker Chad Holcomb connected on
a career best 47-yard field goal to
give ECU a 3-0 lead.
West Virginia's first scoring
drive came after Charles Emmanuel
intercepted Crandell's pass at
ECUs own 33-yard line. WVU
tailback Amos Zeroue, who rushed
for 111 yards on the game, gave
WVU the lead with a one-yard
touchdown pass from Mountaineer
quarterback Chad Johnston with
under 5:00 remaining in the third
quarter.
West Virginia then had a
chance to take a 13-3 lead with 8:21
left in the third quarter, but Moun-
taineer kicker Jay Thomas missed
a 44-yard field goal, his second miss
of the game which kept the score
at 10-3.
ECU had a chance to tie the
game late in the fourth quarter, af-
ter the Pirates had blocked a WVU

punt for the second time of the af-
ternoon, but Crandell's pass to
Larry Shannon on the Mounatineer
22-yard line, was stripped out of
Shannon's hand by Mountaineer
defensive back Mike Logan, and re-
turned 11 yards to the WVU 33-
yard line.
"I was going for the tackle first,
but the ball was out in front so I
took a swipe at it" Mike Logan said.
"It just worked out for me
That was just one of the great
defensive plays by the WVU de-
fense, who held ECU to just 281
yards in Saturday's contest.
"I've been here a long time and
I think that's the best defensive per-
formance we have ever had Moun-
taineer Head Coach Don Nehlen
said. "The fact that we shut ECU
down on offense says a lot
ECU quarterback Marcus
Crandell struggled most of the af-
ternoon as the senior from
Robersonville completed 22 of 48
passes for 222 yards. Crandell was
intercepted three times, and sacked
twice by the Mountaineer defense.
The Pirates now have to get
ready for a South Carolina team
that is now 2-0 after a 23-14 vic-
tory over SEC rival Georgia on Sat-
urday night.
"We have to put the WVU game
behind us and get ready for South
Carolina Crandell said. "We beat
them down there two years ago,
and they are definitely going to be
ready for us. We are definetly go-
ing to have to get prepared this
week for USC"

After losing eight seni6r start-
ers to last May's graduation, ECU'S
rugby team began its fall season
this weekend by throttling the
Cherry Pt. Team by nearly, 50
points.
The scoring started early and
continued all day during the non-
traditional three-period 90-minute
match. The ECU team did seem to
have some problems kicking for
points. Vice-President Eric Car-
buncle blamed the kicking prob-
lems on poor field maintenance.
"Three inches of grass makes
it hard to get good foot on the ball
Carbuncle said.
ECU had impressive play from
many new players. First-time start-
ers Matt Hobblegood, Carbuncle,
Charlie "Lamb Chop" and Kendall
Jones all had superior perfor-
mances. Jones scored several times
for the team but feels he could still
better his performances.
"I wish I could just learn to
hold on to the ball with two hands
Jones said.
Forward selector Matt "Spe-
cial" Stewart was pleased with the
forwards' performances.
"I was surprised by the for-
wards' play today Stewart said.
"They did well despite excessive
weight gain during the off season
Team captain Mike Myers was
very happy with the team's victory,
but is looking forward to their next
test.
"This match was a great tune-
up for Virginia Tech next week
Myers said. "Our practice this week
will focus on condition and team
consolidation
ECU will travel to Virginia
Tech, Sept. 20 with hopes of add-
ing another slash to the win col-
umn. The teams practices Tuesday

TEAM from page 10
)
Amy Graham's squad elected as a
team to not send in tapes and sit
out the competition for a season. O
"As a team we really didn't
want to go to nationals and bother
with the extreme rigors of taping
Graham said.
The Pure Gold dancers re-
grouped after a season off from
competition, and roared back in"
dance camp. J
"Well we had a strong camp, a z
very strong camp, because they
only take the top four or five teams T
at camp to go to nationals, so we're
pleased with our performances
Graham said. �
In the taping process, tapes are;
sent in and the teams are ranked
From those rankings they invite
teams by their ranking to go along
with the teams invited from the:
camps. q
"Even though we don't get a
ranking, seeing we don't have tost
send in a tape, we're relieved we
don't have to make a tape Grahamn
said. aa
With a performing medium like'
the dance team, one would think it:
would take time for the perform-
ers to get used to one another, but
the Pure Gold squad is twelve step:
ahead of the competition.
"We were a close knitt grow
last year, but this year we are closer
than I ever dreamed Joanna Foustl
said.
Foust, in her third year, was
selected as the team captian for the
'9697 squad.
"I feel more important this
year Foust said. "I feel I can help-
the younger dancers with problems
I had when I was in their shoes
Problems could arise with the
hectic schedule of these athletes.
First of ail, they have to maintain an
2.0 GPA, as well as keep up an
strenuous physical training prom
gram which includes distance run-
ning as well as weight training. Not
to mention a rigorous practiced
schedule. tfl
"It was harder than I ever imag-n
ined, "rookie Lisa Baggett said, "I jj
was thrilled that I made this team t?
Now this team is misunder-
stood by some. Popular belief, is �
that they only perform during bas- 2
ketball season, but that isn't the
case. Prior to every, home football,
game, the Pure Gold dancers per
form in front of the Student Stores
on campus for about an hour. NotM
only that, but they also help out at-v
the Football games with promo-1
tions to help the team as well as;j

LOOKING FOR A NEW POSITION
B,
INUTE URIEFS
The ECU volleyball team re-
bounded from a 1-5 start this sea-
son to take the tourna ent title
at the Cornell Invitational.
In Friday's match with
Wagner, ECU fought early to de-
feat the Seahawks in straight
games, 16-14, 15-9. 15-3. The Pi-
rates hit stronger than they have
all season with newcomers Shan-
non Kaess and Jennifer Harris
leading the team with 11 kills.
In the early match on Satur-
day, ECU defeated Morgan State
there games to one, 15-11, 9-15,
15-12, 15-13. Sophomore Kristin
Warner was a force as she added
11 kills and 20 digs for ECU.
The late tame pitted the Pi-
rates against host team, Cornell.
The Bears proved to be the real
test of the tournament, as the
match went to five games. The
Pirates won the first game 15-10,
before having to fight back in the
second to take it 17-15. Then
Cornell fought hard to take the
third and fourth games 8-15 and
11-15 respectively. The Pirates
knew why they had to do as the
match came down to one final
game and a 15-8 victory for ECU.
Freshman Julia D'Alo had a
career high 49 assist against
Cornell while fellow rookie Kaess
led the team with 21 kills and 17
digs, both career bests. For their
outstanding
play during
the week-
end, D'Alo
was named
tournament
MVP, while
Kaess was
also named to the all-tournament
team.
"It was a total team effort
Head Coach Kim Walker said. "We
played great.
The Pirates improve to 4-5 on
the season with a big match against
North Carolina tonight at 7 p.m. in
Chapel Hill.
The men's soccer team (1-1. 0-
1 in the CAA), suffering from a 13
day lay-off between games, fell to
CAA foe and 13th ranked James
Madison University (3-0, 1-0 in the
CAA) on Saturday at the JMU Soc-
cer Field 7-0.
Seven different Dukes scored
over the course of the game as the
Pirates were outshot 34 to five in
both teams first CAA matches of
the year.
"James Madison showed us to-
day how a top 15 team plays. "Head
Coach Will Wiberg said. "We played
well in the second half, but we have
up three goals in a row at the end.
They just showed up ready to play
With only one game behind its
belt, the ECU team recorded just
one shot on goal 1 the first half.
Led by sophomore forward Wyatt
Pano's (Jacksonville, N.C.) two
shots, the Pirates tried to stay fo-
cused in the second half trailing 3-
0.
ECU junior goalkeeper Jay
Davis (Wilson, N.C.) registered 14
saves in 90 minutes of work, while
JMU's Barry Purcell notched two
saves after playing 76 minutes in
the game.
The Pirates will continued
their road trip as they traveled to
Lynchburg, Va. yesterday to square
off against Liberty University. At
press time the results of the game
were not available.
The women's soccer team (3-
1) ended their longest winning
streak in team history at three
games, suffered their fist loss of
the season on Saturday at the
Lower Athletic Field against a for-
midable Wofford College (3-1)
team. 1-0.
"Wofford played well, they
were physical and aggressive
head Coach Neil Roberts said.
"All the credit goes to them. They
came out and played extremely
well. They just pressured us early
and we never were able to recover
from the first goal
WC's fist and only goal of the
game came at the 11:51 mark as
freshman Lindsay Freeman
scored on freshman goalkeeper
Cara Morgridge (Burke. Va.)
Morgridge recorded two saves
while the Lady Terriers' lleana
Moschos registered four.
"Cara Morgridge did a fine
job in goal preventing many
Wofford attacks from being seri-
ous threats
The Praetors managed to cre-
ate seven shots on goal to
Woffords nine in their first loss
of the season. Senior Stacey
Schott (Reiserstown, Md.) led the
Pirate attack with there hosts on
the Lady Terrier nets.
ECU will travel to Norfolk,
Va. Tomorrow as they kick of
their CAA conference schedule
against ODU. ECU'S first night
game of 1996 will begin at 7:30
p.m.

THESE ARE THE WORDS of opportunity.
There is only about 5 of the people in the
United States who have what 1 want These
are the leaders that have moved out of the
flock and became eagles. If you don't ever
step out of the pack, you will always be part
of it If you want to be understood by the
5, you will be misunderstood, at times, by
the 95. I am part of the fellowship of the
5. The die has been cast I have steDped
out of the comfort zone, the decision has
been made. I won't look back, let up, slow
down, or back away. My past is forgiven, my
present is focused, my future is secure. I'm
finished and done with low living, sidewalk-
ing, small planning, faithless dreams, taint-
ed vision, mundane talking, cheap excuses,
and dwarf goals. I no longer have the need
for eminence, position, promotion.promises,
or popularity. I don't have to be first I don't
have to be right, 1 don't have to be rec-
ognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I
live by faith, learn by submitting, labor by
love, lead by example. My dream is devel-
oped, my destination definite, desire deter-
mined, discipline dedicated, devotion dis-
tinct My pace is set, my pace is fast my road
is narrow, my way is tough, my companions
strong, my counselors reliable, my purpose
pure, and my mission clear. I can not be
bought compromised.detoured, lured away,
turned back, diluted, delayed or denied. I
will not flinch at the face of sacrifice, hesi-
tate in the presence of the advisory, nego-
tiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at
the pool of popularity, or meander in the
maze of mediocrity. 1 won't give up, shut
up, let up until I've stayed up. stored up,
paid up, and stood up for the prices and
cause of freedom. I must fight when others
faint go when others won't give until I drop,
teach till I know, and work until the task is
finished and when I lay exhausted on the
playing field of dreamers, the Britt Diamond
Club won't have a problem recognizing me
as one of their own. Come join us. For more
information call 353-0634.
