they encountered young folk re-

clumsily dropping ball-point pens.
Little did the subjects suspect
that their conduct was being

As a student progresses up the
chain to the graduate level, the stress
levels grow exponentially.
"The average graduate student is
required to finish 30 to 60 semester
hours, the physical therapy depart-
ment graduates are required a mini-
mum of 74 hours said Paul Tchetter,
associate dean of ECU's graduate
Graduates spend an average of 20
hours a week on work just related to
their classes. Homework and research
for classes require long hours of study
and comprehension.
"Graduates work on two differ-
ent types of assistantships. Some
work with teaching for professors.
Others work in graduate research ei-
ther for themselves or for their pro-
fessors Tchetter said. "Assistant-
ships usually require 15-20 hours of
work a week
According to Tchetter, assistant-
ships are the backbone of the gradu-
ate students' degree program. Those
students who teach learn their field
through practical use, while learn-
ing how to prepare study material,
tests and grade papers.
The graduate research program
consists of very intense and exten-
sive compilation of information which
must be narrowed down into a solid
informative paper. The thesis pro-
gram is overseen by an adviser and is
judged by a panel of professors.
"The graduate process is very
demanding said Dr. Bruce Albright,
chairman of ECU's physical therapy
deptartment "Good time management
will allow for graduates to work with
the pressures

comes directly from the department

Graduate students, like any other,
listen to the folklore of professor dif-

on students if they are in a situation

Dr. Richard M. Rothaus, an
authority in the fields of archae-

senting a lecture on two Greek
harbors when he visits ECU on
Oct. 24.
The presentation is being
organized by the Maritime
Studies Association (MSA) and
the Program of Maritime His-
tory and Nautical Archaeology
(PMHNA). Peter McCracken is
the president of the MSA, which
is a graduate student organiza-
tion for those in the program.
"This program is one of the
things that East Carolina is
known for, nationally and inter-
nationally McCracken said.
"It's a program within the de-
partment of history, but it's
very interdisciplinary
Dr. Rothaus will be doing
another presentation at Chapel
Hill soon after his lecture here,
and is making a special effort to
fit ECU into his schedule on his
way to UNC-Chapel Hill.
"He's certainly going out of
his way to come here, and I feel
certain that the program's repu-
tation has a lot to do with it. It's
an indication of how well we are
respected to have people like Dr.
Rothaus come to speak on cam-

Visual arts committee enjoys spotlight

Staff Writer
The series of exhibits being held in the Menden-
hall Student Center Gallery.sponsored by the ECU Stu-
dent Union Visual Arts Committee, is approaching the
end of its second successful event.
The first of the six shows, Reunion Iron '96,
started Aug. 18 and ran to Sept. 20. The sculpture
department of the School of Art has held a foreign
study studio course for the last two years in the Bal-
tic countries of Europe. This event displayed various
sculptures done by many of the artists who partici-
pated in the Baltic experience.
Tyler Dockery, chairperson for the Visual Arts
Committee for the Student Union, was very pleased
with the success that it brought. Dockery said that
there were easily more than 80 people there.
"It went great Dockery said. "It gave the stu-
dents a good chance to talk to the artists themselves
The next exhibit, The Photographs of PH. Polk,
is on display until Oct. 27. This contains many of the
works done by Herman Polk. During the 40 years
that he was an official photographer for Tuskegee
University, he recorded the daily activities of George
Washington Carver, administrators and distinguished
campus visitors. Dockery said that the extensive col-
lection of pictures regarding George Washington
Carver was a very good illustration of Polk's work.
"It shows not only the scientific side, but also the
artistic side, and what he does in his spare time
Dockery said.

The successful musical, "Always,
Patsy Cline will be played at Wright
Auditorium tonight as part of the Per-
forming Arts Series.
According to Carol Woodruff, the
arts marketing director, this second
installment of the 1996-97 series is
based on the letters written to and
from Patsy Cline and her fan Louise
Seger, who also became a friend to
the singer.
"It's about a fan who has been
writing to her for years, and they tell
her life story through these letters,
and you get to meet both the charac-
ters Woodruff said.
The play in-
cludes excerpts from
the actual letters
written by the two
women and over 20
Patsy Cline songs.
There were no origi-
nal songs written for
the play. The Cline
songs include her
well-known stan-
dards, "Crazy" and

years, to bring in artists that we don't

clude performers that have a great
popular appeal. That appeal does not
diminish their quality Woodruff said.
Woodruff stresses that tickets are

Activists storm White House
WASHINGTON (AP) - More than 300 AIDS activists were forced from in front
of the White House by police on horseback after protesters threw urns with what
they said were human ashes onto the mansion's lawn.
During the incident Sunday, Steven Hardway of Oklahoma City, a member of
the group ACT UP, tossed an urn he said contained the cremated remains of his
lover who died of AIDS. U.S. Park Police escorted him from the scene but said they
did not arrest him.
ACT UP characterized the demonstration as a political funeral to protest Presi-
dent Clinton's AIDS policies and to press demands including guaranteed access to
anti-AIDS medications, more AIDS research and a federally funded needle exchange
program for addicts.
Clinton was campaigning in the West at the time.

Students who are interested in
pursuing a career in the health fields
may want to consider majoring in
health information management, a
four year degree with a strong job
outlook for the future.
The health information

Previously known better as Medi-
cal Records, Health Information man-
agement takes full advantage of new
technology to store and file data in a
more effective manner. "At one time,
medical records took up the space of
a whole department" Bell said. "Now
all patient files will eventually be con-
densed into the size of one room con-

Students in the Bachelor of Sci-
ence degree begin a clinical clerkship
in their junior year at a hospital, since
the primary part of the job, coding, is
learned through practical experience.
"However, the major also in-
volves collecting and
integrating data to

record, and learning
to communicate and
present the data to
groups and compa-
nies after research-
ing. After the clerk-
ship, students can
branch out their
training to alterna-

Rallies planned
across the country
DALLAS (AP) - With just three
weeks left to turn around his strug-
gling presidential campaign. Ross
Perot is ready to leave the television
studio and join the campaign trail for
a series of rallies across the country.
Perot had planned to concentrate
his campaign on 30-minute television
broadcasts until he had difficulty buy-
ing the time he wanted. So in re-
sponse, he's planning eight rallies,
beginning Thursday, and two
speeches before the election.
Along with running-mate Pat
Choate's appearances "we'll be able
to cover a good portion of the coun-
try before this is over campaign co-
ordinator Russ Verney said.
Since Perot accepted the Reform
Party nomination on Aug. 18, the
Texas billionaire has made about one
appearance a week and held just one
rally. Despite a solid showing four
years ago, he has languished in the
single digits in opinion polls this year.
The new schedule, released on
the campaign's Internet website, rep-
resents a departure from his near-to-
tal reliance on broadcast, but still is
dwarfed by the hectic campaign sched-
ules of both President Clinton and
GOP challenger Bob Dole.
"They do a lot of photo
opportunities. We do a lot
of substantive events said

tion and Exhibition will be held
Jan. 27 through Feb. 23. This is
an annual all-student art competi-
tion that awards over $1,000 in
prize money every year.
The last event of the series. Sa-
cred Space: Photographs from the
Mississippi Delta, will be shown
from Feb. 28 to March 28. This show
will exhibit Tom Rankin's photo-
graphs based on sacred life in the
Mississippi Delta region. It includes
a variety of scenes, from small
churches in the rural cotton fields,
to outdoor baptisms on quiet lakes.
Overall. Dockery says that the
exhibits offer a lot of things for stu-
dents, and says that they will get a
lot out of it.
"I think the Mendenhall Gallery
is a �d opportunity for students
who are not in the art field, to go
experience something different
Dockery said. "Students can come
and enrich their lives in different
ways than material things might pro-

GRAD from page 1
According to Ball, politics and
favoritism tend to play a leading hand
in graduate program development.
"There is a greater level of per-
fection and a greater expectation by
the graduate faculty and a certain
level of competition between gradu-
ates, which makes for very stressful
situations Ball said.
The returning or older graduate
students look toward full or part-time
jobs for their survival.
"One of the biggest pressures

Tchetter said.
Graduates are continuously be-
ing exposed to large volumes of in-
formation which needs to be dis-

are watched over less than under-
graduates and find themselves re-
quired to do more in a shorter
amount of time.
"Transition is difficult for stu-
dents, especially coming back into
the college system Ball said. "Stu-

The student newspaper celebrates its 71st year of publi-
cation this fall, and thanks to students, we're still going strong.
We give thanks to not only the students who read TEC, but
to the students who spend countless hours running it.
We stay late and rise early to make sure this publication
is the best it can be, and yes, we make mistakes-that goes
along with the learning experience we gain by working for
the newspaper. We have exams and social events to attend
just like anyone else, but TEC gives us an extra identity on
campus. We always look forward to seeing new faces and you
never know, yours could be next
TEC News always aims to get the scoop-somet mes suc-
ceeding and other times not. The news section features ev-
erything from the latest hard news to studentfaculty pro-
files and the never-ending construction projects. If anything
interesting happens, we'll make sure you're informed. And if
YOU see anything happening that is of interest to the student
body, please call us anytime.
Lifestyle is the coolest section. Our lifestyle writers will
tell you anything and everything from what the local sound
sounds like, to what free movies are playing at Hendrix The-
ater. Not only are there restaurant, CD and book reviews, the
lifestyle section gives you the extra twist you may need to
stay hip with college life.
Sports is the favorite section for Pirate fans. Our football
tabloid, The End Zone, is better than any other because our
writers are students, just like our athletes. You'll find our
sports writers on the gridiron, the track, the diamond, the
frisbee golf course or anywhere else ECU students are com-
Advertising pays the bills. Our advertising representatives
worked through the sweltering heat for weeks in order to
find the great deals in our Back-to-School issue. The ad reps
also gain valuable sales experience they can take with them
away from Greenville after they graduate.
Without our production department, there would be no
newspaper. This department creates and fine-tunes advertise-
ments and puts the paper together like a puzzle.
Don't forget to check out our classifieds and announce-
ments section. If you need a roommate, have something to
sell or want to send your sweetheart a personal, TEC
Classifieds is the place to advertise. It's not free, but it's cheap.
Enough patting ourselves on the back, TEC employees
will continue working for students for the next 70 years or
so, hopefully longer. We don't try to compete with other pub-
lications because we don't need to. ECU students are our
audience and as long as we're in print, we'll cater to you.
If yon'd like to learn more about TEC, give us a call at
328-636C or stop by the Student Publications building (across
from Joyner Library.) We are always in need of more employ-
ees and most students look forward to a little more cash at
the end of the month.

Counterfeiter ruins night for concessionaire
To the Editor,
Thursday night's ECU game was
such a disappointment! I watched the
game on television and two of my
sons attended. They didn't see much
of the game though; they're among
the group of kids who sell conces-
sions in the stands. Those who de-
liver drinks and food to your seats
are independent contractors who
don't work for the university. They
buy their wares from the university
and make a small amount of each sale
to the public.
We were all sorry the Pirates lost
the game. The real disappointment
hit when my sons arrived home at
almost midnight to find someone
gave one of them a counterfeit $20
for a bag of peanuts. Whoever you
are. you sure had a successful
evening-a bag of peanuts and S18
in change for a poorly executed com-
puter copy of U.S. currency. By the
way, that's illegal!
Counterfeiter, you cheated a
teen honors student and athlete out
of $20. I'm a student myself, so 1 can't
afford to replace his money. I hope
those peanuts were worth as much
to you as $20 is to my son.

Braveheart is an epic piece of
celluloid. A fiery Scottish nation
fights against the oppression of a
conquesting England. Now that was
no Viet Nam. Those Highlanders were
battling for their own land. They
fought passionately and bravely, thus
the title. So, as I sit on my couch
watching the struggle for home, I
start thinking how could I even
possibly relate to such a valid cause
for war?
Being the first male in my fam-
ily to not be drafted or to join the
military, I've found myself in a pre-
carious, pacifist position. I started to
realize that I have no strong ethical
standard that would lead me to fight
Though I have found fights that I
thought were noble, it always ended
up that I felt empty and foolish for
the altercation. How justified can a
fight over quarters lost in a video
machine be? No, my life has ulti-
mately been trivial when it comes to
a cause.
There has never been an inva-
sion of the United States in my brief
lifetime. Other than the occasional
larceny, my pad is safe. But what I'm
talking about is some dude from an-
other country busting in and having
his way with my lady, eating my food
and sending me off to some prison
camp. Now that makes an
undercooked tuna steak at Staccato's
a pretty impish reason to deck some-
body. You're sure as hell not going

See, the fact is that we, as pam-

reason to fight a war since the Revo-
lution and Civil War times. That was
the only time we were truly threat-
ened. You are encouraged in your ev-
eryday life to stand-up for the most
banal things. The term "personal
freedom" is a crock of over-defined
generalities. You walk down the

Although she was only 30
years old when her life tragically
ended in a plane crash near
Camden, Tenn Patsy Cline was al-
ready a headliner on the country
music scene. She was the first fe-
male country singer to have hits
cross over from the country to the
pop music charts. During her all-
too-brief career she performed at
the Grand 01' Opry, Carnegie Hall,
the Hollywood Bowl as well as in
schoolhouses and fairs around the
Patsy Cline's career took off in
1957 when she appeared on Arthur
Godfrey's Talent Scouts TV show
in New York. The song she per-
formed, "Walking' After Midnight
had been recorded a year before,
but had not been released yet. Don
Hecht, the song's writer, said, "She
strode before the cameras that were

In 1973, Patsy Cline was
elected to the Country Music Hall
of Fame, too late for her to know
what an amazing impact she had
made on the lives of her fans, and
one fan in particular - Patsy's
friend Louise Seger.
Seger met CLie at a concert
in Houston in 1961 and corre-
sponded with Patsy until her death
in 1963. The letters of these two
women are the basis for the Arkan-
sas Repertory Theatre's musical hit
Always Patsy Cline.
The musical is jam-packed with
over 20 Patsy Cline favorites as well
as a touching representation of the
relationship between these two
women. Seger is portrayed by
Candyce Hinkle, a kindergartjen
teacher from Little Rock who re-
signed her job teaching hearing-im-
paired students to accept the role.
Hinkle first saw the show in
April 1994, when it was still being
played at the Arkansas Repertory
Theatre. She was given a chance to
audition for the national tour pro-
duction, and she jumped at it. She
got the role and has never regret-
ted following her dream.
Cline herself is portrayed by
Alice Spencer, a musician turned
actress from Texas. Her audition
was held at the Driskill Hotel in

he doesn't sing out. The music is the

scarred spirit as they continue to

As the disc continues, it becomes
obvious that it was recorded around

same, but the words keep putting you
back in the same place. It's not a bad

Bob (Robert Musgrave), Anthony (Luke Wilson) and Dignan (Owen C.
Wilson) are goofy buddies who find that a life of crime is hard work.
Wes Anderson's wet dream has
actually come true, so to speak. Ev-
ery young film student dreams of
the time when he and his friends
can slap together a cheap film about
a bunch of lame wackos who basi-
cally work hard at doing nothing.
Why? Because this is the essential
core of every film student's being �
creativity with an intended ambiva-
And Anderson completed his
dream with a 13-minute short film
he made while a student at the Uni-
versity of Texas in Austin. What hap-
pened then was more than Ander-
son could have hoped for.
The film had instant success at
independent film festivals and
caught the eye of big-time produc-
ers at the prestigious Sundance Film
Festival. Columbia Pictures finally
signed Anderson to a bigger budget
film based on his short. Thus was
Bottle Rocket born.
With Bottle Rocket, first-time di-
rector Anderson has made the quint-
essential film student film. Quirky,
sophisticated, clumsy, intuitive, in-
sightful, ignorant, stupid, funny,
topical - all of these words can be
used to describe the microcosmic
world of the three friends whose
story Bottle Rocket depicts.
The main protagonists in the
film are childhood chums Anthony
(Luke Wilson). Dignan (Owen C. Wil-
son, who co-wrote the film with
Anderson and is brother to Luke)
and Bob (Robert Musgrave).
As the fiim begins, Dignan, a
pleasantly misguided wannabe crimi-
nal, breaks Anthony out of a men-
tal hospital so that he can become
Dignan's partner in crime. The kind-
hearted Anthony, not wanting to
hurt Dignan's feelings or wreck his
delusions of grandeur, lets Dignan
complete the break-out even though
Anthony is at the mental hospital
voluntarily and can leave anytime he
They pick Bob. a spineless rich
boy who is constantly tormented by
his older brother Futureman (An-
drew Wilson, brother to both Luke
and Owen), as the third member of
their crew simply because he is the
only one who has a car. The three
are so inept at their life of crime that
their wacky misadventures almost
become farcical.
There are several elements that
save them from this, however. One
is James Caan who portrays Mr.
Henry, the owner of a landscaping
company called The Lawn Rangers
and Dignan's criminal mentor. Caan
became involved with the film when
Columbia took over the re-shoot His

Will there be an all-female presidential ticket soon?
(AP)-The vast majority of women
ages 18 to 40 believe women in leader-
ship positions can improve workplace
productivity (93 percent) and quality
of life (85 percent), according to a re-
cent national survey. Women's convic-
tions are so strong that 42 percent
expect to see an all-female presidential
ticket in their lifetime.
For more women to advance to
leadership positions, 73 percent think
companies should place less emphasis
on hours spent in the office and 60
percent feel gender sensitivity classes
are needed. Women also said these
additional pressures affect their ad-
� 83 percent agree that women
are evaluated as much on appearance
as ability
� 77 percent believe being over-
weight is a barrier to their success
� 71 percent feel physically attrac-
tive women are more likely to succeed
� 65 percent feel gender alone can
hinder a woman's success
� 60 percent believe having a child
takes them off the fast track
Despite these perceptions, a sur-
prising 67 percent of women believe
that women and men will have greater
pay equity in the next ten years.
Contrary to the stereotypical '80s
mindset, women see the "super-
woman" notion as myth, not reality;
60 percent of women ages 18 to 40
with family responsibilities don't think
it is possible to have it all - a success-
ful marriage, children and a career -
without sacrifice. The majority (82
percent) of respondents with children
agree that women need a new model
of success in the workplace - one
that's not based on male models.
Today women are aspiring to lead-
ership positions, both for themselves
and their daughters. When asked what
their daughters should have as an as-
piration, the answers ranged from
CEO of a Fortune 500 company (28
percent), to winner of a Nobel Prize
(28 percent), to best-selling author (18
percent), and first woman president
(17 percent).
Two-thirds of respondents believej
in the importance of publicly recog
nizing women's achievements - 66
percent agree that a national holidayj
commemorating a famous womanj
should be legislated.

(AP)-When it comes to life expect-
ancy in America today, there's good news
and better news.
The good news is the life-expectancy
rate has been steadily climbing through-
out this century, mostly due to advances
in science such as medicines, vaccines,
technology and procedures. Average life
expectancy is now over 75 years, up from
only around 54 in 1920.
The better news is that there are a

your own chances of living to a ripe old
age. These, based on American Medical
Association guidelines, include:
1. If you smoke, stop. If you don't
smoke, don't start
2. If you drink alcohol, do so in
moderatioa Two drinks a day are enough
for most people.
3. Stay within the ideal weight lim-
its for your height and age. Ask your
doctor what they are.
4. Exercise vigorously at least three
times a week.
5. Eat sensibly. You need a balanced
diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables,
few fats and sweets.
6. Try to get a good night's sleep
every night How much sleep you need
varies with individuals. Try to determine
your optimum number of hours.
7. Try to maintain a positive out-
look on life.
8. Drive defensively. Always wear
seat belts.
9. Get regular check-ups.
10. In addition, you can encourage
the government to continue to fund uni-

versity research projects that could come
up with new cures and treatments for
the conditions you may develop as you
age. Just as such research led to such life
expectancy extenders as the transplant
technology, long-term dialysis for kidney
failure, heart pacemakers, MRIs and the
like, researchers are currently looking
into ways to deal with Alzheimer's, can-
cer, heart disease and other ailments that
cause so much grief and cost so much
Surprising to many is that universi-

single group of basic researchers. This
research is funded by the Federal gov-

some in Congress who want to reduce
the funding for this research.

Inter-squad meet
first of the season

David Councilman
Staff Writer
The word "champion" can evoke
many images. The Chicago Bulls of the
90's - the Green Bay Packers of the
60's. Many may not realize that the
ECU Swim Team are champions as
well. They have the winningest pro-
gram at ECU. Guided by Head Coach
Rick Kobe, this year's team hopes to
build on that tradition.
The female swim team last year
went 8-2, and won a second consecu-
tive CAA Conference Championship.
With 12 girls returning from last year's
championship squad, the lady pirates
hope to add another championship.
The team sets goals they want to
achieve for the year. This year's goals
for the team include nothing but the
top. They want to win their third con-
secutive title, and go undefeated.
The team is led by the seniors.
They are led by Elizabeth Bradner,
from Richmond, Va and Elizabeth
Browne, from North Columbus, Mo.
Along with talented upper classmen,
the team boasts a freshman group that
is being considered the best ever for
the lady pirates. Leading this strong
group of freshman is Kristen Olson,
from Rochester Hills, Michigan.
"This year's freshmen class is the
most talented freshman class ever
Kobe said.
This team is full of CAA finalists
and along with the freshmen class they
should provide the team with plenty
of depth.
"This team will depth you to
death Kobe said.
The women's swim team practices for this weeks meet. The
women look to repeat their 95-96 championship season.
By the looks of the talent of this
year's team, the Lady Pirates should
build on their outstanding tradition
and win their third consecutive CAA
Conference Championship title.
Along with the female squad, the
men's team also looks to contend for a
CAA Conference Championship. Last
year's team finished 7-3 and finished
fifth in the conference. This team is
also led by seniors, Alex Vittier, from
Miami, Fla and Lee Hutchins from
Manasses, Va.
The goals of this men's team is to
finish undefeated and move into the
top three in the conference.
This year's team also has an out-
standing freshman class. They are led
by Patrick McGonical from Jessup, Md.
"Freshmen along with the rest of
the letterman of this team, will be a

The stage was set: the fireworks
were lit and the Pirates were on their
way to receiving the national recognition
that all of Greenville was looking for.
Southern Mississippi had other ideas as
they halted ECU's home win streak at
10 before an ESPN 2 audience 28-7.
The Pirates were coming off a two
game tear and were looking to crack the
top 25 with a win against the visiting
Eagles, and early on it seemed to be play-
ing out just as Steve Logan planned. It
was the Golden Eagles who would start
it out on offense as former third string
quarterback Lee Roberts would get the
starting nod. The Pirates stalled the USM
offense that looked out of sync, but then
disaster struck. On the ensuing punt
junior punter return man Jason Nichols
fumbled on his own 5-yard line to set up
the first USM touchdown.
From then on it was all Southern

us, and we were not able to get back on
"We got off to a bad start and never
got over it" Head Coach Steve Logan
The Pirate offense would go three
downs and out for their first series of
the game which set up the next Eagle
touchdown. The two combined scoring
drives took the Eagles all of two min-
utes and 20 seconds. The Bucs' backs
were against the wall.
"They came out and played really
well, and they were the better team to-
night" Linebacker Matt Semenza said.
The Pirates had no problem mov-
ing theall downfield to get into in the
red zone multiple times, but they didn't
actually get on the score board until the
fourth quarter with a Crandell touch-
down strike to Jason Nichols after a
Semenza interception.
Southern Miss (5-1) came into
Dowdy-Ficklen with one of the most
feared defenses in the southeast and it
was no surprise that they forced the Pi-
rates to turn the ball over four times.
The surprise came, however with the
dominance of an overlooked USM offen-
This beefy front which averages
around 300 pounds across, was not a
huge concern for ECU's coaching staff
due to USM's lack of offensive produc-
tivity. This was not the case on Thurs-
day, as they controlled the line of scrim-
mage for practically the whole ballgame.
"We were dominated up front" Line-
backer Carlos Brown said. "We expected
the physical play, but we got back on
our heels early
An uncharacteristic ECU defense,
gave the young Roberts plenty of time,
which allowed him to break USM record
completing 13 consecutive passes.
"Their offensive line whipped our
defensive seven Logan said. "It was the
first time it happened this season. With
that much time, it's easy to complete a
lot of passes
Roberts, who previously had only
two attempts which were incompletions,

The world of stock car racing can
be very demanding for a young team
both financially and as far as fan sup-
port goes. For driver Michael Ritch and
the ECU Racing Team, the fan support
has been there, but the financial sup-
port is lagging behind.
Ritch and two of his Busch
Grandnational Chevrolets were on hand
before the football game on Thursday
night to answer questions about the
team, and to sign autographs. For Ritch,
the opportunity to experience the ex-
citement of ECU football and its fans
was a testament in itself.
"After coming down to Greenville
and being here on such an exciting night
really made me realize how loyal the
fans are at ECU and their strong sup-
port for the football program Ritch
said. "I found that a lot of people were
very interested in the race car and a lot
of people didn't even realize that ECU
sponsored a team
The sponsorship deal that the team
has secured with ECU has been a good
way for Ritch and the team to gain ex-
posure, but the way the deal is set up
has not allowed the team to drive in all
of the races that they would like. The
team only receives revenues from sales
of memorabilia that has the ECU logo
on it in addition to the ECU race car.
The team is allowed to keep a portion
of all sales of merchandise after paying
a royalty to the university, which in turn
enables the team to race on Saturdays.
"Being on a tight financial budget
really limits us to what we can do Team
Manager Bryan Clodfelter said. "To this
point, the team has really been
underfinanced and we hoped that we

The team still plans to keep ECU
as its primary sponsor for the rest of
the season, but details for the '97 sea-
son have yet to be finalized.
"We have two more races that we
plan to run this season at Rockingham.
MC and Homestead, Fla. with ECU as
our lead sponsor Clodfelter said. "Its
hard to say what is in store for the '97
season, but if we can find the right fi-
nancial backing from major players at
ECU then we might be able to continue
the sponsorship
Clodfelter knows the exposure has
been great for ECU as well as the race
team and believes that something cai
be secured before the end of the sea
"We hope to do real well in the
final two races of the season which
would allow us to race at Daytona in
the spring Clodfelter said. "This is an
expensive sport to compete in, but it is
also the best advertising that you can
buy for the money, considering
NASCAR has become the largest spec-
tator sport in the world
Ritch also sees the advantages to
having ECU as his primary sponsor.
"It really helps to build up the name
of the university and the race team to
be able to appear on national television
in front of such a large audience Ritch
said. "I would really like to see this deal
wrk out with ECU so that I might be
afte to race full time next year and com-
p5te for the Busch Grand National
pjints championship
Ritch knows that before he can
s$rt thinking about next year too much,
hf must focus on the race in
Hjbckingham and Homestead. Ritch has
hid experience at Rockingham in the
plst and considers the track one of the
niore comfortable tracks that the team
from page 11
runs on.
"Ive talked to a lot of Winston Cup
drivers and they consider the "Hock"
to be a tough and a very fast short
track Ritch said. "We hope we can go
in there and come away with a top 10
finish and por.sibly a win. no driver
wants to go into a race and lose
The ECU Chevrolet has been run-
ning strong in Homestead where the
team finished fourth out of 2H cars.
"Homestead is a real prestigious
race in that it's the last race of the sea-
son for the Busch Grand National Tour
Ritch said. "I hope we can go down to
Florida and run real good in hopes that
we can secure a sponsorship for Daytona
in February, and the entire season next
