Bob Dole pressed his comeback

Dole tried to build on the

Tuesday's rain turned several ar-

pools of water.
The ECU Police Department re-
ported flooding in the parking lot by
Minges Coliseum and Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium, the commuter lot at the
bottom of College Hill and the com-
muter lot on Charles Blvd.
"The lot at the bottom of Col-
lege Hill was the worst, especially the
end on the east. The eastern end is
the lowest and had several feet of
water Teresa Crocker, director of the
ECU police department said.
"It looked like about three feet
of water in the back low corner (of
the commuter lot). I'm judging that
based on the water being about at
windshield level on some of the cars

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Facili-
ties Dr. George Harrell.
The police department assisted
with directing traffic, starting stalled
cars and getting students to cars in
flooded areas during the rain.
Students whose automobiles suf-
fered damage need to have the dam-
age assessed by the police department
as soon as possible.
"If a report is needed for insur-
ance purposes they (students) will
need to come to our department If
we're talking about damage to carpet

want to wait a week to have us assess
it" Crocker said.
Crocker also said that the univer-

caused to the cars because "flooding

"The university intends to pay for

Less hassle for commuting students
This fall, the department for
continuing education has started a
new program for commuting stu-
dents. The program has cut out the
need for students to commute by
opening other educational centers
with partners across the eastern
part of the state.
"The North Carolina Legisla-
ture chose East Carolina University
as one of the four participants in
the program Diana M. Henshaw,
director of the department said.
"Many of the students who take ad-
vantage of the approved program
cannot leave their jobs, homes, or
children for extended periods to
commute. To even drive a few
hours is a hardship and adds the
expense of gas and extra meals that
could be made at home
The four partners in the pro-
gram are Carteret and Craven Com-
munity Colleges, the Marine Corps
Air Station at Cherry Point (for
easy accessibility to marines) and
Havelock Middle School. The av-
erage age of the students is 34.
Twenty-six percent are from the
Department of Defense, 15 percent
are minority students, and 70 per-
cent are women.
Instructors from ECU, who are
partially funded by grants, travel
to the partner sites to instruct stu-
dents. Students learn information
through instruction and also
through the Internet. "Alongside
face to face instruction, students
are gaining the additional benefit
of learning Internet technology"
"In many cases, the students are
young men and women who left col-
lege in the past but feel it is neces-
sary to finish their degree retrain,
or upgrade training Henshaw said.
"Some have associate degrees at
community colleges but need to ad-
vance with a degree at ECU Ac-
cording to a sampling of student
comments from the Fall 1995

gram, students find traveling to
Greenville would be extremely diffi-
cult; many appreciate the variety of
degrees that are now being offered
to them in the areas where they live.

Shannon ieaps to new heights
End Zone Writer
In recent years, with the success of
former Pirate Jeff Blake and the current
Buc signal caller Marcus Crandell, ECU'S
football program has been often referred
to as "Quarterback U
Now as any football fan know, behind
great quarterbacks are great receivers on
the other end of great pass plays. Junior
split end Larry Shannon has been on the
receiving end of more than his share of
passes from Crandell.
At 6'6 205 pounds, Shannon gives
any quarterback an impressive target, not
to mention his ability to leap up to get the
ball. Shannon has broken a team record
for the highest vertical leap for a wide re-
ceiver at ECU with a leap of 38 inches. With
his frame and ability, along with excellent
speed, Shannon gives a quarterback the
freedom to put the ball up in the air and
let him go get it.
After being red-shirted in his freshman
year in '93, Shannon saw action in every
contest in the '94 campaign. The Starke,
Fla. native opened eyes by coming in and
registering 17 catches for 226 yards along
with his team leading six touchdown grabs.
Most of his touchdown receptions came off
what has now become Shannon's signature
pattern, the "fade
"Well, it's a pattern where I can utilize
my height and I can just go up and get the
ball Shannon said.
After a fantastic freshman year, Shan-
non followed it up by improving the very
next season by grabbing 24 catches for 346
-yards and five touchdown's.
"Ever since I got here, Coach Logan
has worked with me on going up and get-
ting the ball, using all of my abilities, and
it has been something we've been able to
take advantage of Shannon said. "It al-
ways seems to be there
It is no secret that when the Bucs are
in striking distance, that a lob from Crandell
to Shannon is a serious threat in the back
corner of the end zone. Of course with a
weapon like Shannon, most teams keyed in
on the big 80 on his jersey which somewhat
took away the fade.
The only problem for Pirate opponents
is that this guy can go deep as well as pull
down the red zone jump ball from a shorter
defensive back. In his two years as a Pi-
rate, Shannon has averaged 14 yards a
catch, and was remembered by most Pirate
fans as the receiver that pulled down the
67 yard touchdown pass during the first ECU
offensive play of the West Virginia game.
"Most guys I face are shorter than me,
which gives me an advantage and gives
Marcus a bigger target Shannon said.
"Most DB's probably think I'm slower be-
cause of my height which also catches them
This season, Shannon has kept the ball
rolling, leading the Pirate receivers with 14
grabs for 188 yards along with three touch-
downs. Even as a junior, Shannon has been
recognized for possible post season acco-
Earlier this season, Shannon was se-
lected as one of 21 receivers put on the
"Watch List" for the Biletnikoff award given
at the end of every season to the best of
college football's receivers.
"It's an honor to be recognized, but
it's not going to affect me, I'm just going
to go out and do my job the best I can

Are you pumped?
We are definitely ready.
When ECU hosts Southern Mississippi tonight on
ESPN 2, it will be only the third time a game has been
nationally televised from Dowdy-Ficklen.
If ever fan support was needed it is now. The pre-
game show will start about 20 minutes beforethe game
and the cameras will pan around the stadium showing
the crowd. If we don't have the stands full before the
game, it will look pathetic.
ESPN is so sure we'will have a good showing of fans,
they made the ECUMiami game their prime-time game
on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m. Now we wouldn't want to
disappoint them; would we?
Some big-time officials are going to be at this game
and the more fans we have, the better recognition we
will have. The vice president of programming for ESPN
will be in attendance as well as the commissioner of
Conference USA and the director of the Liberty Bowl. .
This is a big game as far as the bowl berth goes since
ECU has participated in the Liberty Bowl for the past two
years. Officials not only make their bowl selections based
on the team record, but also the crowd support.
During the game, special events have been organized
to ensure that the game is a blast. When the Pirates take
the field, look up in the sky and you'll think it's July
4th. That's right; fireworks will be blasting off along with
smoke when ECU makes their entrance.
During half time, the heroes of the two hurricanes
will be recognized for their hard work and determina-
tion for getting us back where we are today.
Before you go to the game, be sure to stop by the
grocery store to pick up non-perishable food to put in
boxes that will be located at every gate. Since the hurri-
canes, the food banks have been depleted and it is vital
that they be replenished.
This is our chance to show the entire country what
ECU football is all about. The team and coaches have
been asking for respect from the football world and its
fans and now is the time.
This game is going to lead to bigger and better deals.
It's already landed us a prime-time spot next week against
Miami. It doesn't get any better than this.
The siren will bl&re across the PA to signal that game
time is near. At that time we hope you'll pack up the
food, head to the stadium and fill every seat.
So far student ticket pick-up has been successful. Now
we just need to make sure that when the cameras start
rolling, the fans are there to show their spirit.
Just think, this may be one of your only chances to
get on national television. So when the game starts to-
night, wear your purple and gold, show the country your

abuse. The study began in 1975 and

In the May 13, 1996 issue of U.S.
News and World Report Leo states
that, due in large part to the efforts
of women's organizations, husband
abuse toward wives has declined
since 1975. During that same time
though, spousal abuse toward hus-
bands has remained static. As a re-
sult, instances of wives assaulting
husbands are now higher than hus-
bands abusing wives.
Ironically, under mandatory ar-
rest laws, states are now seeing more
wives arrested for petty assaults than
husbands. By focusing on one side

Leo maintains that far left groups
have missed a prime opportunity to
lower all domestic abuse cases. Also,
in typical liberal fashion, arrest laws
that were supposedly meant to help
women are now getting them ar-
rested. So ladies think twice before

eral legislation you may be the one
This is not to say that women's
abuse is to be trivialized; it is a very
legitimate issue. Instances of hus-
band to wife violence are much more
violent. Women are much more likely
to be seriously injurttj or killed in a
domestic violence incident. The time
has come for solid reform that pro-
tects the rights of women and chil-
dren rather that penalizing victims.
It is good to know that people
are working to stop such violence.
Ann J4. Barnhill is such a person.
Mrs. Barnhill is a trial lawyer special-
izing in domestic violence and fam-
ily law. Since 1979 Mrs. Barnhill has
fought for the rights of abused
women here in Pitt County.
With sexual harassment and do-
mestic violence so prevalent in soci-
ety Mrs. Barnhill is a bright light on
the horizon. In an unprecedented
move Ann Barnhill is running for
election to the district court bench
in Pitt County. She is the first
woman to ever file for election for
this position in Pitt County's history.
If elected Mrs. Barnhill will be the
first woman and the first Republican
to be elected to this position. In the
true Republican tradition she will
fight for individual rights, this time
the rights of battered women. Help
to show that Pitt County is a pro-
gressive community with the inter-
ests of women and family at heart.
Lets help to break Pitt County's
"Good 01' Boy" network with the
election of Ann H. Barnhill to Dis-
trict Court Judge.

Vote pro-choice b&'96
I cannot think of an issue that
engenders more disagreement,
more anger, more screaming and
yelling. It's something that most
politicians usually try not to touch
with a ten-foot pole. But it's a topic
that is on the minds of many, and
it's something that we are going to
tackle this week.
With all of my other liberal ar-
ticles. I guess you don't have to be
a rocket scientist to guess where I
stand on this issue. I believe that
no man or woman has the right to
dictate what another woman can or
cannot do with her body. It's true
that most Democrats share my view
and most Republicans are pro-life.
Let me say one thing. I highly
respect the conscientious decision
for someone not to have an abor-
tion. I respect people who do not
agree with the procedure; and I re-
spect families who feel abortion is
wrong. What I do not respect is in-
dividuals on the pro-life side who
want to mandate what a woman can
and cannot do with her own body.
Here's an important distinction
to make. I'm not pro-abortion. I
don't know anyone who is. What I
am, and what a majority of Ameri-
cans are, is pro-choice. That is, all
we want is the ability for women to
make the choice themselves, with
their family and their God. If people
are against abortion, then they
have every right to decline to have
one; and that's fine.
The Republican party platform
states that they support a consti-
tutional amendment banning all
abortions. That means if a woman
is raped, she would not have the
right to terminate that forced preg-
nancy. If a woman is a victim of
incest, she would not have the right
to terminate that pregnancy. If a
woman's life was in danger, she
would not have the right to save
her life. If a woman's child were to
be severely deformed, she would
not have the right to save that child
from a life of torture and pain.
I know that many will disagree
with my previous statements and I
welcome that. Our country is built
on the fact that reasonable men and
women can disagree. However, I get
really tired of pro-lifers who claim
that we who disagree are Godless;
that they have a mandate on mo-
rality. First of all, most of the
people who are screaming and fuss-
ing are on the pro-life side. I drove
by a pro-life rally in Raleigh the
other day, proudly displaying my
ClintonGore bumper sticker. Well,
besides all of those offensive "Abor-
tion Kills Children" signs, some of
those people gave me the meanest
looks, and one of them gave me the
finger. What kind of morality is
I hate to bring this up as well,
but sometimes pro-life arguments
are somewhat intellectually lacking.
I read the Reflector the other day,
and instead of seeing a letter to the
editor where the writer expressed
his disagreements with President
Clinton on the abortion issue, the
writer called Clinton a "baby killer"
and proceeded to deem him "Willie
Scissorhands Feeble words from
a feeble mind. Also, speaking of
morals, I haven't heard of pro-
choice people acting violently.
What I have heard is of several doc-
tors who have been killed by pro-
life extremists, who try to use the
issue to justify murdering someone.
Make no mistake, there are many
good, honest people on the pro-fife
side (I know several of them). How-
ever, I'm saying there are some real
morons on the other side, plain atid
Well, this wasn't the easiest of
columns to write, but remember fhe
point: Disagreement on the issues
is fine, but restricting freedom is
the greatest evil of all. In a perfect
world, we would all be pro-choice.
There would not be a minority of
people who sought to deny worrjen
their reproductive freedom. Thjfere
would be reasonable people dis-
agreeing on which choice to make,
whether or not to have a first-tri-
mester abortion. But this isn'J a
perfect world, and for many djys
to come, you'll see the best, and
worst, that the pro-life movement
has to offer.

Students need flood relief
To the Editor,
As I drove past the commuter lot
on the hill Tuesday afternoon, a
thought occurred to me. I would like
to offer a solution to the problem of
the legislative bill paying SGA Execu-
tives' tuition, books, and fees. As
stated by Miss Nix, the SGA Execu-
tive officers are the "highest leaders
on campus Along with that position
should go not only the highest level
of accountability but also the highest
vel of concern for the welfare of their
Perhaps, as a move in the right
direction, the SGA legislature should
propose a new bill that would instead
use that money to aid the dozens of
victims of the flood in the commuter
lot at the bottom of the hill. I am sure
that there were many people who lost
textbooks and other essentials, not to
mention the damage to their cars. I
believe that those students who have
unwittingly been spending their hard-
earned money so that SGA executive
officers can have a free ride on the
system would appreciate knowing ex
actly how concerned their electe4 of-
ficials are about their situation in this
time of need.
This is just a friendly reminder
to pay attention to your representa-
tives and decide for yourself how genu
ine their concern is for you, the stu-

Some people's careers start
when they leave college. Others be-
gin before they ever reach college.
And there are tons of people out
there who have never found their
niche, who are still searching.
Yet, who would ever think of be-
ginning a career at the tender young
age of ten? Leila Josefowicz would,
Josefowicz is a virtuoso violin-
ist from Los Angeles who began her
musical studies in 1980, when she
was three. In 1987, her career as a
professional musician began when
she dazzled the world by perform-
ing on the NBC television special.
"America's Tribute to Bob Hope
In 1994. at the age of 17, she
received the prestigious Avery
Fisher Career Grant and had perfor-
mances at Carnegie Hall and the
Academy of St. Martin. Besides
these stellar accomplishments, her
career has also included perfor-
mances with the London Symphony
Orchestra, a tour of Japan, and ap-
pearances with many major orches-
tras in the United States. Josefowicz
has even released an album of the
Tchaikovsky and Sibelius concertos
on the Phillips Classics label. And
she's only 19.
Well, tonight at 8 p.m. in Wright
Auditorium, this young violinist will
kick off the 15th anniversary Pitt
County concert season for the North
Carolina Symphony. Josefowicz will
perform Beethoven's "Concerto in
D major for Violin and Orchestra
Maestro Gerhardt Zimmerman will
lead the orchestra in Mozart's "Sym-
phony No. 34" and in Sinfonia by
contemporary American composer
After the concert tonight,
Josefowicz plans to do a return tour
of Japan, make her concert debut in
Australia and tour Europe, as well
as continue her studies at the Curtis
Institute of Music in Philadelphia.
Needless to say, she may not be re-
turning to North Carolina for a
while, so do yourself a favor and
catch her now before she gets too
old to play anymore. Just kidding.
Concert series tickets are $25
for adults, $20 for students and se-
nior citizens, and $15 for children

able by calling 355-0858. Single tick-

that was all dirt and gravel - the land
of doughnuts. Spinning round and

windows open, dirt kicked up in the

loudly - really loudly. It was dough-

about girls ("Silly Girl"), food ("I Like

named The Wonders, and it perfectly
illustrates how the business aspect of
the music industry cares nothing for
Even though a story about a strug-
gling band who makes it big to only
fall by the end is not exactly the most
original concept. Hanks puts such a
snappy, innocent spin on the whole film
that the story markedly becomes his.
The result, That Thing You Do, while
not very intellectually challenging, is
as fun. snappy and pure as any song
from the earlv davs of rock n' roll.

Tom Cruise and Brian DePalma both accomplished the seemingly im
possible last summer when they transformed the hit '60s television series
Mission: impossible into a certified hit feature film. While the ads for this
Cruise flick hyped the action in the film. Mission: Impossible turns out to be
a spy story with more brains than brawn.
This is not to say that this story, involving a renegade group of spies
fighting the system in an effort to clear their names of federal charges, does
not have its share of action. The finale, while not quite as explosive as it
could have been, does feature Cruise battling some baddies on top of a speed
ing locomotive. However, the hulk of the film is more subtle, and more com
plex, than that.
Many critics complained about the plot being incomprehensible. Ignore
those idiots. While Mission: Impossible is a film that warrants audience at
tention. the plot is more predictable than incomprehensible.
Some may grow bored with the movie's methodical pace, but others wil
delight in this thinking person's action thriller. The film's must-see scene
features an incredible break in at the Pentagon While this scene has virtuall)

The opening credits wonderfully
set up the mood for the entire film by
playing a catchy pop '50s tune over a
montage sequence of Tom Everett
Scott (who eerily looks just like a young
Tom Hanks) working in an appliance
store. Ah, those were the days, filled
with soda pop, ponytails and
Studebakers. The times were young,
innocent and pure.
Or so Hollywood, the source of
all of my "50s knowledge, would like
us to think. While Hanks captures the
nostalgic idealism of the pre-Vietnam
era. he still slips in hints of what the
future holds for America. Scott's father,
who runs a locally owned business, be-
moans the fact that a super mart is
open on Sundays. "I don't think I want
to live in a country where a man has
to work on Sundays to support his fam-
ily the hard-working father states.
But the focus of Hanks' film is the
music, the '50s sound that symbolizes
the supposed innocence of an era. Ev-
eryone is familiar with this sound. We
hear it daily on the golden oldies sta-
tion where the Beatles sing about the
joys of holding a girl's hand. But any-
one who listens between the lines of
such lyrics will many times discover a
less innocent interpretation of these
joyous songs. Yes, even the '50s had a

such dark territories, Hanks only
touches upon them lightly and, instead,

"That Thing You Do are a perfect

wants to focus all energies on exploit-
ing the Wonders' current hit as much
as possible. The money is with the hit
single, so the hit single is what gets all
the attention. Current musical stars
like Eddie Vedder and Billy Corgan can
probably identify with this dilemma.
Hanks could have easily made a
"serious" film in which we witness the
growing, inner conflicts within the
band slowly eat away at its members
until they just break apart from one
another. We could have watched the
creative pulse of the band withdraw
into his music and himself to the point
that the band no longer is a unit. We
could have even stayed with the band
as they and their music both lose their
innocence because the times force'
them to become more "experienced
But all of that has been done be-
Instead, Hanks makes That Thing
You Do more like American Graffiti
than The Doors. And, admittedly, that
decision seems to have been the right:
one. The film, like Hanks himself, has
a natural pureness. The actors (mostly
unknowns, with the exception of
Hanks and the incredibly talented Liv
Tyler) are all effortlessly effective in
their individual roles. The cinematog-
raphy and editing (professionally ac-
complished by Tak Fujimoto and Ri-
chard Chew respectively) don't try to �
detract from the story with dazzling
effects. Even the music (some of which
was written and produced with the
help of Hanks) carries such an
' uncontrived sound that one could eas-
ily picture the fresh-faced Beatles
crooning such tunes.
After winning two Oscars in a row
and starring in numerous box-office
blockbusters. Hanks set himself up for
disaster by writing and directing his
own feature film. Not surprisingly,
though, Hanks once again proves that
he is not a one-hit wonder by creating
a film worthy of his talents and his
nice-guy image. While I do hope that
Hanks sinks his teeth into some juicier,
more controversial topics in the future,
That Thing You Do is an appropriate
starting point for a man who does his
thing so well.

The East Carolinian
WEEZER from page 6
Weezer have managed to outshine
their 1994 debut in every way with
their new record by creating a
catchy yet intimate musical tapes-
Titled Pinkerton, after the
westerner in the play Madame But-
terfly who falls in love with a Japa-
nese beauty, the album centers
around just this theme. There are
several long-distance love songs on
the album ("Across the Sea "el
Scorcho "Butterfly"), and the
cover art features a painting of a
Japanese village, a black-on-black
photo of a Japanese lady, and a map
It's probably a safe guess to say
that Cuomo (or someone else in the
band) has fallen for a fan from Ja-
pan. The references are all over the
album. Though all of these love ref-
erences are plainly heart-on-the-
sleeve, they are delivered with a
sense of humor that only could
have come from the composer of
"Undone - The Sweater Song
In "The Good Life Cuomo de-
clares, as if it is a life-and-death mat-
ter, that "I just need to admit that
I want sugar in my tea Hear me,
hear me - I want sugar in my tea
(Eastern cultures use no sweetner
in their tea.)
The clash of cultures is defi-
nitely an issue, but a resolvable one,
or so Cuomo asserts in "el
Scorcho where he sings with
gusto "I'm a lot like you, so please,
hello, I'm waiting. I think I'd be
good for you, and you'd be good
for me �
Some of the other songs,
though not quite close to the cen-
tral theme, still focus on unrequited
love, sometimes in unexpected
ways. "I'm dumb, she's lesbian
Cuomo laments in "Pink Triangle
What '90s male can't relate to that
dilemma? "She looked so straight
when she was on the dance floor,
and oh-so sexy "
"Tired of Sex" is the realization
of a male slut that there's more to
DESCEND from page 6
love than, well, than unrestrained
The music on the album is still
solidly Weezer, but noisier. Gone
are the catchy, Cars-esqe '80s key-
boards. In their place are even
catchier '90s guitar noodles and
noises. The album opens up with a
feedback-filled drum stomp that
slides easily into the angst-filled
first line of "Tired of Sex
Cuomo's sense of musical com-
-position is by no means gone,
though. The guitar lines are still
wonderfully attractive and hooky.
The melodies are as fun and sing-
alongable as ever. The chorus of
"Falling For You" has got to be one
of the best chorus melodies this de-
cade. Dance music has rarely
sounded this rock and roll, at least
not since the '50s.
"Why Bother" is a perfect
party song, in spite of the fact that
the song is all about the fear of
being hurt in a relationship. You
still can't help but sing along and
tap your feet as the song promotes
Cuomo's ability to contrast
moody themes with catchy, fun mu-
sic is topped only by the indomi-
table songwriting team of Lennon
and McCartney. Weezer is tighter
than before, tripping along complex
polyrythyms and vocal harmonies,
and they have improved from the
repetitive strum pattern that was
all over the first record. The over-
all musical canvas sounds less fuzzy
and more gritty and groovy, pull-
ing Pinkerton to heights that the
first album could not reach.
It is a sad thing to note that
this is Weezer's last album as
Weezer. Rivers Cuomo will be fin-
ishing his college education (at
Harvard) and band-mates Matt
Sharp and Patrick Wilson have de-
cided to develop their side project,
The Rentals. But then again, it's
kinda nice, knowing that an album
as superb and sublime as Pinkerton
will be Weezer's swan song.
Alvarez and Steven Egerton remained
on with All, releasing six albums, nu-
merous EPs and a live album, Trail-
Now, nearly ten years later, Milo
is back with Stevenson, Alvarez and
Egerton, and the Descendents are
once more with the release of Every-
thing Sucks on Epitaph Records.
Do the Descendents still have
what it takes to rule the parking lot
and provide inspiration for the teen-
age art of "la doughnut?"
Start your engines.
Everything Sucks features 15 fast
and forever furious songs. Only one
song eclipses the three-minute mark,
and, in fact eight songs don't even
make it to two minutes. They still sing
about girls ("Sick-O-Me"), girls ("She
Loves Me") and food ("Coffee Mug").
Milo and the boys show on "Rot-
ting Out" that they were jaded Cali-
fornian basket cases when Billy Joe
and Green Day were still dookving in
their pants: "Shove all your problems
under the rug Then you wonder
where the smell came from
Nevertheless, if the Descendents
indeed have as many problems of the
female kind as Everything Sucks (and
actually all of their albums) seems to
indicate, then it probably sets a record
for the number of heartbreaks one
band can suffer. In "I'm the One
Aukerman sings, "No one knows as
good as me We're just good friends
And you come to me for sympathy
You tell me that I'm not your type
But you still call me late at night
Every time he picks a fight After all
he's said and done And in "Sick-O-
Me he sings again, "Relationships de-
teriorate I've seen if from the start
Easy as it is to fall in love It's
easier to fall apart I won't let it fall
apart" The above-mentioned record-
setting stress is especially evident in
these two tracks.
My only complaint with the al-
bum is the widespread use of the
word "suck Not only do they say
"This place sux" in "This Place but
actually, "Everything Sucks" today
The reformed Descendents, how-
ever, do not suck. They're older, just
as happily angry, and, in fact, they
seem to play even faster and harder
than they did as young punks in the
'80s. The songs are simple and filled
with silly girls, but Everything Sucks
remains perfect punk pop.

The East Carolinian
Workers recognized for
efforts during game
The summer of 1996 will be one
that many North Carolinians would
soon like to forget. Two devastating
hurricanes. Bertha and Fran, blew
their fury through N.C. Many residents
throughout N.C. lost everything they
had. and many towns were hit tragi-
cally hard by wind, rain and tornadoes.
What resulted from this was a major
clean up effort and hard work from
many North Carolinians.
In typical North Carolina resil-
ience, people from this great state
pulled together and helped each other
through thus trying time.
Tonight at the ECU and South-
ern Mississippi game the "heroes" of
these two hurricanes will be recognized
as "The Heroes of the Hurricane
"The idea came from the ECU ath-
letic program and the goal was to rec-
ognize all the people who worked so
hard to recover North Carolina, and
also expose these people to Pirate foot-
ball ECU Athletic Director Mike
In conjunction with the Emer-
gency Management officials, ECU will
distribute discount cards to personnel
from the fire and rescue. Red Cross,
National Guard, utilities, department
of transportation, law enforcement and
The card is good for one compli-
mentary ticket and additional tickets
will be at ten dollars a ticket Person-
nel from 19 Eastern North Carolina
counties, from Raleigh to all the east-
ern counties will receive these tick-
"We wanted to bring tribute to
the large number of individuals whose
efforts have helped to rebuild, the
many areas of the eastern part of our
state which were affected by the hur-
ricanes Hamrick said.
The personnel, along with receiv-
ing the discount cards, will be hon-
ored at half time during a nationally
televised game on ESPN2. As of right
now, the athletic office does not know
if these people will be shown on the
nationally televised game.
"These organizations have dem-
onstrated a commitment to do every-
thing they can to rebuild this area,
and this is a small way of saying
thanks to these dedicated individu-
als Hamrick said.
So tonight Pirate fans, give these
people a special ovation; they have in-
vested a lot of sweat and tears in put-
ting North Carolina back together
again. Without the efforts of these in-
dividuals, N.C. might still be in
Remember. Pirates, as you are
cheering the Bucs on loudiy, for an-
other home win and a possible spot
in the Top 25 national rankings, that
the special individuals being honored
at half-time deserve your respect and
admiration. Show them what the
"Spirit of the East" is all about.
They may have helped clean up
your town or helped one of your fam-
ily members get through a very try-
ing time. Without them, the football
game being played tonight may not
have been able to be played.
Coming off a hard loss last week to Virginia Tech, the ECU Rugby team came back this week to destroy the
University of South Carolina 50-0.
The scoring started early for ECU. Two minutes into the match, after three consecutive penalties against the
Gamecocks, the Pirates were awarded their first of several trys for the day.
"We simply took advantage of their ignorance and our hustle team President Todd Ward said.
ECU's offensive surges highlighted the match. Rookie Richie Cunningham had several long runs to the outside,
scored one try and had one try called back. Cunningham was worried about his ability prior to the match, but stepped
up and proved himself worthy of the A side start
"We worked the outside all day team Captain Mike Myers said. "Their defensive skills�on the wing were poor at
best so we attacked it"
Myers had a solid day with three 30- meter-plus runs for tries and one penalty try. Eric Kunckle. Kendal Jones
and the ECU pack all added to the scoring barrage.
"ECU owned their pack, with 600 plus pounds in the front row it's hard not to dominate Jr. "Son of Satan"
Manning said. "Stolen lineouts, eight man shoves and zealot - like defense really takes the heart out of a team and
that's what we did tore their hearts out"
In the second game of the day. ECU faced a determined USC "B" side. One long run to the outside and a penalty
play from 15 meters out proved to be too much for the young ECU "B" side. USC couldn't convert the points after for
either try and the score at half was 10-0.
The ECU team dug their heels in for the second half. Rookies Jamie. Brad Noris and "B" side all-star Kevin
"Meatball" Sellars all had excellent efforts to include a game winning try from Sellars. The final score was 12-10.
These wins make ECU's match record to 2-1. The next contest for the Pirates will be Saturday at the Allied
Health field against the Cape Fear Rugby Team.

Runners gear up for meet
heads to Auburn
Sean R. O'Brien
ECU Women's cross-country
team is expecting a good showing
this weekend as they prepare to run
in one of the biggest meets of the year
at Auburn University.
The meet will host 40 schools and
over 300 women runners this week-
end, as the Pirates prepare to face the
most challenging field of the year. This
meet will bring in the top runners
from across the southeast, mid-west,
northeast and western states. Head
Coach "Choo" Justice sees this meet
as a way to evaluate the program and
see where the teams runners need to
be, as the Colonial Athletic
Association's conference meet is fast
"We see this meet as way of see-
ing how we stack up against some of
the best teams in the country Jus-
tice said. "We're going to go into this
meet and hope that we can improve
on our individual times and to pre-
pare for the CAA conference meet,
that is the most important meet for
us of the year
The Lady Pirates will have to
compete this weekend without their
top runner from last year, Suzanne
Bellamy. Bellamy has not been able
to run in any of the meets that the
team has competed in this year be-
cause of a recurring tendonitis prob-
lem. Running without Bellamy is a
major setback to the team's overall
performance because of her ability to
run up front. She was named CAA
rookieof-the-year last year as a fresh-
man, but Justice will be looking to
other runners to step up in her ab-
"We're a middle-of-the-road type
of team right now, we're not great,
but we're not terrible either, but we're
half speed without Suzanne in the
lineup Justice said. "We are looking
for several of our runners to get the
job done this weekend, particularly
Kerri Hartling and Karen Reinhard
Reinhard, a junior from Burke.
Va� knows how important it is for the
team to do well. She is one of the co- '
captains on this year's cross-country
squad and understands the struggles ?
that her team is going through with-
out their top runner. She also hopes a
to improve on her individual time of �
19:19 in the team's first meet of the 4
season, in which she placed third. �'
"Having Suzanne out has hurt us
quite a bit as a team Reinhard said.
"She is our strong leg on the team
and with her out it really puts a dent
in our overall conference record
As for Reinhard's personal goals
for the match, she only has one.
"I'm not getting too wrapped up �
in how 1 place, as much as 1 am con-
cerned with my time Reinhard saidi "
"I would like to close in on 18 min- ?
utes if at all possible, which is where
I need to be for the conference meet.�
As for the team as a whole, 1 hope
we can close the gap between the top
five teams in the conference

Intramural soccer kicks off
The 1996 intramural soccer sea-
son is set to kick off next week with
registration meetings and team sign-
ups leading to the opening of the sea-

The gold level is designed for
experienced players who wish to par-
ticipate in a highly competitive atmo-
sphere whereas purple leagues are
designed for teams who are recre-

The various leagues offered are
intended to provide a level of skill
and competitiveness appropriate for
anyone desiring to play. League times
are available on a variety of days and

The soccer preview is a new pro-
gram which will provide additional
pre-season play opportunities for a
limited number of teams in a jambo-
ree format on Monday, Oct. 21 and
