Amber Huffman, chair of the
Student Homecoming Committee,
said that planning foi this year's
Homecoming events started back in
January, when she first began or-

event was conducted last week,
when the Homecoming Court was

to the small crowd. Officers are still

Even though no one is sure as

Harvey Gantt called for incum-

source of over $3 million in contri-
butions to the Jesse Helms Center

Immediately following a rally i.i
front of Mendenhall Student Cen-

leased by The Washington Post
Saturday which stated that the
Helms Center Foundation received
$325,000 in contributions from for-
eign governments. Identified dona-
tions included $100,000 from the
government of Kuwait in 1991 and
$225,000 from the government of
Taiwan. Contributions from Taiwan
were given to the Helms Center
Foundation while Senator Helms
presided as chairman of the Sen-
ate Foreign Relations Committee.
The Washington Post said that
while the Foundation refused to
release any sources, the paper iden-
tified that corporations such as R.

Milliken and Co. donated
$1,785,000. Approximately $3 mil-

Press says VP to
WASHINGTON (AP) - Al Gore has
developed a handy hearing problem late
in the campaign. Shout a question and
it just doesn't reach him. Before reports
surfaced of shady money in the Demo-
cratic campaign, he was all ears.
The vice president's Reagan-like
device for avoiding uncomfortable issues
is only the most literal example of ques-
tions getting lost in the wind this elec-
When the dust settles after Tues-
day, the country will be scarcely closer
to knowing the fate of Social Security,
whether U.S. troops will be in Bosnia
next year, whether the will can be found
to clean up campaign financing, and
Calls for a bipartisan commission,
sometimes paths to a solution, other
times roads to nowhere, have become
another way to set aside choices too com-
plex or sensitive in the campaign.
A look at some unanswered ques-
PARDON ME? A timely "no com-
ment" ended discussion in the first presi-
dential debate of possible presidential par-
dons for President Clinton's Whitewater
associates. Clinton said "I will not give
anyone special treatment" but did not
rule pardons out Bob Dole had no bet-
ter luck in the second debate.
Why does it matter? Republicans say
that by maintaining the option, Clinton
also keeps alive a possible incentive for
people unc.r investigation to avoid giv-
ing damaging testimony against him - if
they have any. No pardon, and possibly
no reason to hold back.
It's also obvious a Democratic ma-
jority in the next Congress would be less
aggressive about investigating Clinton
and those around him.
Questions swirl around the
Whitewater land deal, FBI files found at
the White House, travel office firings and
CAMPAIGN MONEY: Corporate
and union "soft-money" donations are
pouring into both parties in record
amounts this year. Those party-building
donations are exempt from limits im-
posed after the Watergate scandals, but
central questions about campaign financ-
ing and spedaHnterest money in govern-
ment are going unanswered. Both par-
ties have avoided pushing campaign fi-
nance reform for at least 10 years.
Questionable contributions to the
1996 Democratic campaign have sur-
faced late; foot-dragging on the release
of the party's latest pre-election finan-
cial report could postpone full disclosure
until after the election.
Dole and Clinton have both backed
a commission to study campaign financ-
ing. Indeed, Clinton and House Speaker
Newt Gingrich shook on it 16 months
ago; it didn't happen.
SOCIAL SECURITY: Big ideas are
in play for the long-term solvency of
America's largest benefits program but
they haven't been discussed in the cam-
Instead, Clinton and Dole both want
a commission to study Social Security
after the election.
Options include raising the retire-
ment age even more than planned, re-
ducing benefits or increasing taxes on
wealthy recipients in future generations,
and investing a portion of contributions
in the stock market where it could earn
a bigger return but face risk.
Clinton and Dole haven't ruled any-
thing out to save the program.
But the implications for modest
sounding changes could be enormous.
For example, shaving the annual
cost of living increase by one percentage
point would result in a loss of $5,000 in
benefits over a decade for the average
TAX CUTS: How Dole would pay
for the dramatic tax cuts at the core of
his campaign remains largely unex-
plained. His campaign declined to sub-
mit the plan to the Congressional Bud-
get Office for pre-election analysis.
A combination of strong economic
growth and spending restraint is sup-
posed to cover the $548 billion cost and
enable the budget to be balanced. But
Dole has not been specific on what big

GAMBLING: Gambling and efforts
to control it have swept the land like a
prairie fire. If gambling has been golden
for local coffers, so has silence on the
issue in the campaign.
Clinton and Dole support a commis-
sion to study gambling. But the dead-
line passed Oct 2 for appointing mem-
bers. Republicans have named a casino
executive, two social conservatives and
a neutral commissioner but Clinton and
congressional Democrats have put off
making their five choices.
Both candidates say gambling is a
local issue. So are municipal youth cur-
fews and school uniforms, just two such
matters commanding attention.

Republican governors have
been a major force behind the char-
ter school movement; Dole sup-
ports the idea as part of a broader
initiative, opposed by Clinton, to
allow parents to choose where their
children attend school.
Dole said he had 138 electoral
votes locked up, but a look at state-
by-state polling suggested he could
bank on perhaps half that heading
into the final week.
Dole's count factors in three
generally reliable Republican presi-
dential states: Texas, Virginia and
Indiana. But polls indicate Clinton
is competitive in ail three, and he
served fresh notice Tuesday he
would fight for them.
Clinton is campaigning in
Texas on Friday and his campaign
this week for the first time pur-
chased television advertising in the
state. Overall, Clinton advisers said
he hoped to outspend Dole by
roughly 2-to-l on television in the
Clinton entered the stretch to-
ward Election Day next Tuesday en-
joying more than a lead in the polls:
As of Oct. 16, the last filing dead-
line, Clinton had more than $34
million to spend, while Dole had
$19.2 million. Both candidates have
spent a good deal of those funds in
the two weeks since the filing.
A Dole campaign official said
campaign accountants had been
put on notice to carefully track
spending in the final week and
make sure the campaign did not
end in debt. Dole's advertising bud-
get was described by Democratic
and Republicans sources as total-
ing roughly $600,000 to $700,000
a day in the closing week.
Clinton, on the other hand, au-
thorized aides to spend at least
twice that. One aide said Clinton
would spend $1.5 million a day in
the final week; another put the
daily figure closer to $1.2 million.
In Texas, Clinton bought time
in the El Paso and Tyler-Longview
media markets, and Clinton strate-
gists were debating whether to air
spots in the more expensive Hous-
ton market, the campaign and
White House aides said.
Similarly, the aides said
Clinton bought time in Virginia's
Norfolk and Roanoke markets as
part of the campaign's effort to
pressure Dole in traditionally Re-
publican states. One said campaign
polling showed Clinton leading by
seven percentage points in Virginia.
Clinton also resumed advertis-
ing in Indiana. And the Democratic
campaign purchased time in several
states where it had gone off the air
because of giant leads, including
Wisconsin, Minnesota and Washing-
ton. There are competitive congres-
sional contests in those states.

Norris said that they plan to make
the program accessible to staff and fac-
ulty in late January. Students will not
be able to use this new system until
the fall of 97.
Some of the students who at-
tended the fair were very excited about
all the technology that was being
shown. Jeremy Jordan, a sophomore
majoring in computer science, was one
of those students.
"I tuink that it is great that all of
these people are interested in and con-
cerned with staying up with technol-

ECU students have seen the promised land of stu-
dent recreation centers, but will we be able to go in?
Four years ago, many ECU students were awak-
ened from their peaceful slumber to the sounds of a
hammering pile driver at 6 a.m. For all who don't
recall, that was the start of the construction of the
new Student Recreation Center beside Mendenhall
You all have heard about its Olympic swimming
pools, juice bars, basketball courts and weight rooms.
You've also heard about the cost through your stu-
dent fees. Hold the music. Cost is not the issue here,
folks. The deal has been signed and sealed; but the
fact is: it hasn't been delivered.
Four years ago, this project was started to give
an activity center to just the students of this cam-
pus, which has everything any student could ever
desire to keep fit. After delays caused by the chang-
ing of contracting companies, the Rec. Center finally
got on track and was expected to open soon. Now,
the opening date of the Rec. Center is more like an
Elvis sighting. You know, that could be it, but don't
get your hopes up. Many times over the students here
at ECU have been told that their new, state of the-art
Recreation Center will be open next month, only to
be delayed another three weeks. When is next month?
Despite the slow process of getting the Center
actually open, we will have to give credit to the ad-
ministration for designing this project just for ECU's
hard working students. If you ever have been to N.C.
State, you'll find they have something very similar,
and they've had it for some time now. At ECU, granted
they serve their purpose, but the facilities we have
now are limited and spread about campus. With this
new facility, students will have a central place to go
for all of their fitness needs .
Some students love free weights for training. They
have free weights. Swimming, they have every pool
imaginable. They also have basketball courts and an
indoor track. Sure, you've seen the bill for all of this
stuff in your student fees bill, but, once again, that's
not the issue.
If you haven't noticed, the Rec. Center has already
been built. It's ready to go, supposedly.
What we want to know is: when will we able to

We are five days from the mo-
ment of truth. There are many im-
portant races, but even the presi-
dential race is small potatoes when
you pit it against the big rematch:

Gump" of American politics, Jesse
Helms. Recently, during a debate,

cation, economic security and the

Helms began his ideological
bomb-throwing in the 60's, as a tele-
vision commentator for WRAL-TV.
He talked about several topics, but
he is best known for his attacks on
the Civil Rights movement. On the
issue of diversity, he memorably
stated that some people "are born
Once elected into the Senate
in 1975, he opposed extension of
the Voting Rights Act in 1975. He
filibustered against continuing fed-
eral legal aid to the poor. When he
tried to kill the Voting Rights Act,
the bill that ensures blacks have the
right to vote, he labeled it as "in-
sulting and degrading" to the
South. He spent an entire month
in 1983 single-handedly blocking

the creation of the Martin Luther
King, Jr. Holiday. Dr. King was not
a "communist" as Helms put it and
he was not a thug, as he still im-
plies today. He was the most peace-
loving man who walked on the face
of the Earth. The fact that the rest
of the Republican party supported
the holiday shows how behind the
times this man is.
He opposed the quest to end
Apartheid in South Africa, warning
that liberating South Africa would
result in "violence and everlast-
This man even voted against the
rest of the entire Senate just a few
years ago, when the Ryan White Act
passed 99-1. He refuses to try to find
a cure for AIDS because of his be-
lief that you must be involved in "im-
moral and unnatural" acts to con-
tract the disease. He voted against
the Republican party again when he
opposed President Bush's brilliant
Educational Excellence Act, because
of his dumb crusade to end all fed-
eral funding for our schools.
I guess you know by now that
he's voted against every single civil
rights initiative that has been laid
before him, and he's even voted
against every Environmental bill
that has come down the pike too
(that's why the League of Conser-
vation Voters has given him a ZERO
rating on environmental issues).
Don't forget that he even threatened
our President in 1994, warning that
"he'd better have a bodyguard" to
visit the state. He also has serious
ethical problems this year. Don't
forget about the Helms family's
cockroach-infested rental properties.
Also, this issue over financial gifts
from foreign governments, as men-
tioned on the front of The East
Carolinian, is one to keep your eyes
on. Where did you get that 3 mil-
lion from. Senator?
Ladies and Gentlemen, the man
Bob Dole dubbed as "the Rambo of
the Geritol generation" has had a
quarter of a century to do his job.
Granted, he's done some good
things for this state. He's also been
kind to many of his constituents.
However, I feel that 24 years is long
enough, and I feel it's time to pick a
positive, issue-oriented candidate
like Harvey Gantt. No matter who
you pick, please go out and vote this

column. To this comment. I say thank
My opinion is that 1 hate to write
about what 1 hate to read about If there
is anything that 1 hate to read about it
is people attempting to portray what
will never be: the honest politician.
MTV, listen up!
The honest politician exists only in
the secret dream world where the Pi-
rates beat Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl
and my yard looks like the Chancellor's.
MTV loves to pretend like there is
a candidate who is worth advocating.
In this world, the honest politician
is not written about in any papers be-
cause people simply assume that what
he or she is doing is good for the world.
They are sent little cards by six-year-old
children in towns all over America, like
Zebulon or Lizard Lick. Inside these
cards are crayon-drawn pictures of the
particular politician standing inside of
a circle of children like Michael Jack-
son. They are handing out puppies and
giving their time to the community that
they serve. Okay, enough of this.
MTV. here I come.
1 do not vote!
MTV is here
because of our
lack of apathy.
Please do not attempt to adjust
your set your reading glasses or what-
ever. I am afraid that all of my friends
will now disown me and my driver's li-
cense might even be revoked, even
though 1 haven't had a ticket in over
three years. (I hope I didn't jinx myself.)
Why should I vote? Rock the
Vote- whatever. Please someone write
in and give me one reason that I should
take three hours out of my day to go
and check a little box that says that 1
am a Republican or a Democrat Those
two words now mean almost nothing
because of the particular consensus
that people should vote the issues.
What does that mean?
Anyone who runs for office and
does not come to my house and tell,
me why I should vote for them is not
deserving of my time. Is my message
clear yet? This does not sound like
apathy to me. Does it to you?
There seems to be a thought outj
today that this generation is plagued;
by apathy. I haven't met an apathetic?
person in a very long time. There is.
more passion in this generation than,
there is tobacco in North Carolina. �
I think that MTV has simply at
tempted to produce this vision of an;
apathetic community that needs aj
place or a silly bus to drive them toj
vote. I am simply offended that MTVJ
would send out a bus to get people to!
vote, and for what?
They want us to vote for nothing
They do not care if people use;
their right to vote. MTV cares about;
MTV and about their image. They have;
fallen too far into the politically cor-f,
rect toilet. They fear if they do not!
maintain their image as the icon for.
correctness that they will cease to.
make the millions that they do when;
our "apathetic" generation hops on;
board their stupid bus.
MTV is here because of our lack;
of apathy. MTV exists because we havej
spent far too much time arguing about!
politics and silly issues that will take!
care of themselves.

To the Editor.
Last week a letter was mailed to
members of the Pirate Club and ECU
football season ticket holders by a
private citizen who criticized Sena-
tor Ed Warren's support for East
Carolina University. To say that Ed
Warren is not a staunch supporter
of ECU is like saying the Pirates are
afraid to play the Tarheels and the
Wolfpack in football-both state-
ments are, in my opinion, absolutely
ludicrous. This latest attack on Sena-
tor Ed Warren is a last-minute, des-
perate campaign tactic by Ed's op-
ponent and his opponent's supporter,
Bill Dansey. and has about as much
credibility as the author of last
Let's look at the facts. Over the
last ten years, while Ed Warren has
served in the North Carolina General
Assembly, ECU has received almost
$78 million in funds to repair exist-
ing buildings and build new ones on
its campus. Some of these projects
include improvements at the School
of Medicine; renovations to Brody
Hall and the Sports Medicine Physi-
cal Education Facility; an addition to
Joyner Library; renovation of Minges
Coliseum: and a major addition to the
Life Sciences Building. In addition,
ECU received $1.7 million in equity
funding this year, which replaces over
half of the university's underfunded
amount. And. over the past 15 years,
ECU's budget has increased by 187
percent. Ed Warren has strongly sup-
ported all of these projects and fund-
ing for ECU.
Ed's opponent would have you
think that he is'a supporter of pub-
lic education, both grade school and
higher education. However, his op-
position to the recent Pitt County
public school bond issue shows his
real position on public education. Yet
he still wants you to believe that he
and his Republican party support
ECU. Let's look at the true Republi-
can position on publicly supported
higher education. The house Repub-
lican budget in 1995 proposed to cut
ECU by over $2 million dollars sic,
or almost 2.5 percent of ECU's total
operating budget. The Democratic
Senate budget in 1995 proposed a
reduction of only .14 percent or
$117,000 dollars sic. The House
budget, had it passed, would have cut
ECU by over $4 million dollars sic
in the first two years and would have
resulted in the loss of 46 faculty po-
In all. the budgets proposed by
the Republican House over the pas
two years would have cut the entire
university system by over $115 mil!
lion dollars sic. In contrast, the bud!
gets proposed by the Democratia
Senate over the past two years hav�
contained an increase of almost $4
million dollars sic for our state'?;

gets, the choice is clear. Ed Warreij
and the Democratic leadership of th�
Senate have supported funding foj
ECU and has protected the campuj
against harsh and unnecessary bud
get cuts proposed by the Republicait
House. Ed's opponent and hi
opponent's party have shown not
only a lack of support for higher edu�
cation in our state, but have propose
budgets which would have torn th�
universities down. Don't be per

That's exactly what the ECU players are
doing for Saturday's game against Arkansas
State, (ASU.) Some may wonder why they
may be getting excited for the little known
Indians, but the players will tell you emotion
is an important part of the game plan.
"The emotion is going to stay high
Cornerback Kelvin Suggs said. "We're pumped
up. We have to stay at our level
ECU had an interesting Oct. schedule that
only saw them playing two opponents. But
Nov. provides a twist in the action. Every
weekend in Nov. ECU has a game - starting
with ASU and ending with N.C. State.
Coach Steve Logan knows it is going to
be important for his players to be ready for
every game, no matter how big or how small.
"We're famous for playing at whatever
level shows up Logan said.
The on-again off-again schedule has made
it difficult for the Pirates to get into a steady
"We're going to hit a five game stretch
where it would be nice to get going, get up
and get some momentum going Logan said.
"These next five weeks are going to be
tough for us, but at least we get to stay in a
Now if you think Logan has let up on his
players in practice after the pounding they
gave Miami, think again. That's not Logan's
style. Just ask Linebacker Carlos Brown.
"This week has been one of the hardest
weeks we have had Brown said. "He (Logan)
ran us hard. He keeps pounding it into our
head that we could easily get beat if we're
That is a thought that has been echoed
throughout the week.
"This is a golden opportunity for them-
selves to win a football game Logan said.
When a team overlooks somebody they
think will be an easy win, bad things can hap-
pen. Just ask Miami.
Logan knows not many people would be
willing to place their wagers on ASU, but he
points out this team is nothing to scoff at.
"When they come to play, I don't think
anybody wants to give them much of a chance
to win Logan said. "They have jeen very
competitive over the last two years
When the Indians matched up with SEC
opponent Mississippi last week, they lost 38-
21. The ironic twist is ASU led in most statis-
tical categories including total yardage which
included 341 passing yards.
So if you scoff at the Indians, you might
be premature to think they aren't looking to
come in and knock off ECU during homecom-
But the Pirates aren't overlooking any
aspect of the game. And neither should the

Your Pirates are 4-2 coming off a big win against Miami. There can be no let down this Saturday as

while being responsible in your actions before, during and after the game.
It's a great feeling when the Pirates are about to win to hear the Hey. Hey. ECYou Look So Good

Suggs steps up performances during games
Assistant End Zone Editor
On Sunday morning after the huge 31-
6 victory against Miami in the Orange bowl,
subscribers to the Miami Herald were greeted
with a picture of ECU cornerback Kelvin
Suggs intercepting a pass from Yatil Green.
"I saw the picture, and it makes you
feel good to get recognized for hard work,
but the next game is coming up, and I've
got get ready to do it again Suggs said.
After the injury to expected starting de-
fensive back Dwight Henry at the beginning
of the season, many speculated how the rest
of the secondary would react to the absence
of the three year letterman. The answer
The Pirates had to adjust to not having the
speedy DB, but they answered a lot of ques-
tions nationally by stopping a potent receiv-
ing corps down in Miami.
One of the key standouts in the second-
ary to help this effort was a huge night from
The Kinston native had two broken up
passes to go along with an interception and
a broken up pass that could have won the
"We were surprised to see how well ev-
erything was clicking Suggs said. "We knew
we could do it, it was a matter of actually
taking what we did in practice to the feild
That they did. Despite the Hurricane
touchdown scored on the game's opening
drive, the Pirate defense put a lock and key
on the end zone as well as the up rights for
the remainder of the game. Every time the
Miami offense would threaten, the Bucs
would find a way to keep them off the score
A huge play in the game came at the
time where ECU had Miami on their heels,
but they still moved the ball, and on a fourth
down situation in the red zone, Suggs made
another mark in the Orange Bowl. Hurricane
tight end Chris Jones broke towards the
endzone and appeared to be open, but the
out reaching arm of Suggs batted away the
strike to break the backs of the Hurricanes.
"I mean these are the games that you
dream about when you're a kid Suggs said.
"Going to a place like the Orange Bowl, with
nobody giving you a chance to win and you
go shut them down. It's a qood feeling
Suggs, a redshirt sophomore, came into
this season with big several big games al-
ready under his belt, including a huge Lib-
erty Bowl last season, coming off the bench.
Against the Cardinal, Suggs had three solo
tackles alone with a key interception in the
third quarter to help the Pirates bring home
the bell from Memphis.
Coming out of the '95
campaign, Suggs was ex-
pected to be the number
one corner off the bench
but fate had other plans.
Suggs saw plenty of play-
ing time in his freshman
year, along with becoming
one of the team's top tack-
le rs on special teams. So,
Suggs, to say the least, was
not without experience. The
injury mentioned earlier to
Henry, along with a juggle
in the line up put Suggs as
the starting CB for the Buc
"I've always just took
advantage of any of the op-
portunities to contribute
that I was given Suggs
said. "I'm just trying to im-
prove as a football player,

continue for this sensational
sophomore, the future looks

Horror takes back seat on trip down Green Mile
Oh my God! 1 don't know who is in
charge at Strangelove Records, but who-
ever came up with the brilliant idea of
releasing the soundtrack to the film Orgy
of the Dead deserves a big raise.
This film, released in 1965, was one
of the last films that the infamous Ed
Wood was involved with and it bears his
indelible mark. Although he didn't direct
this wonderfully horrendous mess. Wood
wrote the screenplay adaptation from his
novel of the same name (it must have
been an extremely short novel, too, be-
cause there are only about 20 lines of
dialogue in the entire film).
The biggest "star" in the film is that

Franco, has over 160 films to his
credit and yet almost no one in the
States ha? ever heard of him. Born
in Spain. Franco has worked all over
the world and was condemned by
the Vatican in the 70s as one of the
most dangerous filmmakers ever.
Mostly Franco carved a name
for himself with his admittedly B-
movie quicUes that were over-
whelmed with a sort of sexy surre-
alism. He always worked at a break-
neck pace, once completing 13 films
in one year. Yet all of his films,

Stephen King has never been a
great writer. He's come close, in short
pieces like "Rita Hayworth and the
Shawshank Redemption" and even in
one novel, his multi-layered Misery.
But most of the time, King is merely
effective; he might be able to make
you sweat with fear, but seldom does
he make you think. In his recently-
completed serial novel The Green
MilA however, Stephen King has suc-
ceeded in doing both.
Published in six monthly install-
ments, this novel returns King to two
things he handles very well: prisons
and life in the middle part of the 20th
Century. Set on Death Row at the fic-
tional Cold Mountain Penitentiary in
1932, Green Mile is the story of the
custodians of Cold Mountain's elec-
tric chair and the one prisoner who
didn't deserve its crackling embrace.
That prisoner is John Coffey. a
large, mildly-retarded black man who
is convicted of the brutal rapemur-
der of two young white girls. But Paul
Edgecombe, narrator and guard fore-
man on the Green Mile (the nickname
of Cold Mountain's Death Row
celiblock), sees Coffey's essentially
non-violent nature and doubts his
guilt When Edgecombe discovers that
the prisoner has the healing touch of
a saint he is convinced of Coffey's
innocence and the story really takes
Though less overtly horrific than
much of King's work, Green Mile still
offers plenty of tension, as well as
scenes that will keep your nightmares
fueled for days. Edgecombe's account
of the night John Coffey was arrested
is tense, gripping stuff. Following a
trail of blood with hunting dogs, the
father of the two dead girls and a
small posse of farmers discovers
Coffey kneeling by the side of the
river, weeping and cradling the two
bloody, naked children in his arms.

fective best I found myself obsessively

Now all of that may seem like the
makings for a good horror flick. But then
Ed Wood gets involved and what starts
out as a schlocky B-movie becomes some-
thing much, much worse. The night of
horror that the Lord of the Dead shows
us is an hour and fifteen minutes of strip-
pers. That's right I said strippers. If you
want to scare the wits out of someone,
nothing does it better than strippers.
If the film is so bad, then why does
the soundtrack deserve the highest grade
possible, you may ask. The soundtrack
consists mostly of the music to which
the strippers do their thing interspersed
with the dialogue of the entire film, and
these become the focus of attention

tal of happy piano tinkling and intercut
with whacking sounds. The record in-
spires awe and is extremely funny.
I doubt if the creators of this
soundtrack realized what they had made,
but they should be commended for their
work. As much as current bands like King
Missile, The Residents, and Primus and
film directors such as David Lynch and
Oliver Stone think that they are on the
cutting edge of absurdist imagination,
they can't hold a candle to what Ed Wood
and his colleagues produced 30 years

Freaks-Todd Browning's 1932
tour de force was so unsettling that
it was banned for 50 years after its
initial release. The film, which cen-
ters around the bizarre relationships
between a group of sideshow freaks,
featured real-life "freaks which is
the probably the main reason the
public was so disturbed by it. View-
ers are privy to such human "abnor-
malities" as a man and a woman who
both look exactly like infant babies;
a man born with no torso; and
We don't know how to describe her.
You'll just have to see the movie.
Repulsion - In this shockingly
unnerving film from director Roman
Polanski, Catherine Deneuve plays
a young fashion model type who is
much more disturbed than her out-
ward appearance would suggest.
Deneuve is wickedly innocent as she
seduces the camera into following
her day-to-day life. Deceptively pleas-
ant at first, this film truly earns its

Last Man on Earth - This end
of-civilization-as-we-know-it film was
based on Richard Matheson's superb
pseudo-vampiric novel am Legend.
(Matheson's novel also served as the
basis for Charlton Heston's film The
Omega Man.) In the title role,
Vincent Price gives one of his fin-
est performances as a man who finds
himself to be the only human being
left in a world full of vampire-zom-
bies. Desperate, depressing and
claustrophobic, this film should be
considered an essential part of any
horror fan's must-see list.
Scream, Blacula, Scream -
Blaxploitation queen Pam Grier
stars as the only person who can slay
the vampire in this sequel to
Blacula. At the time that Blacula
first appeared, blaxploitation films
.and Hammer horror films were both
going strong and someone had the
bright idea to combine the two. Al-
though it may seem to some that
the genres are incompatible. Blacula
was truly a success. However,

Young Frankenstein - Director
Mel Brooks is at his comedic best in
this spoof of early horror films. The
cast, comprised of Gene Wilder, Terri
Garr. Peter Boyle and the wide-eyed
Marty Feldman, hit mark after hi-

horror genre to another level with
Phantasm - A cheesy mixture
of '70s high school pothead movies
an surrealist horror. Phantasm
comes off as a poor man's Lin Chien

threatening as the Tall Man and his
team of undead jawas are absurd,
frightening and laughable all at the
same time. Phantasm cr'eepily runs
the edge between reality and night-
mare better than any Freddy
Kreuger movie ever will.
Creepshow - We know that
most of the critical community
thinks this film should be flushed
down a very deep toilet, but we love
this collection of cartoonish horror
stories. The entire film is a moving
comic book, just like those horror
comics we read as children. The di-
rection and acting is campy, but that
makes this horror treat all the more
colorful. Creepshow is one of the
very few Stephen King films that
John Carpenter's The Thing -
Released the same year as
Creepshow, this remake of the 1951

over the top and ludicrous. Kurt
Russell stars as the leader of a sci-
entific team that is trapped in an
artic snowstorm with a menacing
alien that can take the shape of any
living creature. Not for the squea-

Henry: Portrait of a Serial
Killer - Filmed documentary style,
Henry serves as a damning commen-

most graphic serial killer films ever
made, it is definitely not for the faint
of heart. Try to avoid eating before
seeing this movie. Seriously.
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein�
Even though director Kenneth
Branagh takes liberties with
Shelley's novel, this horrifying ad-
aptation is one of the most faithful
we have ever seen. A bit melodra-
matic at points, but still very effec-
tive. Robert De Niro is simply won-
derful as thp tortured creature who
seeks vengeance on his creator.
Branagh's vision of the story is trujy
shocking as Frankenstein's worjd
spirals down into a hellish night-
Seven - This is the most recent
example of horror at its best. The f ikn
focuses on the idea of modern hor-
ror in a brutally honest manner as
two detectives (played by Brad Pitt
and Morgan Freeman) track down, a
serial killer who kills according to the
seven deadly sins of the Bible. Filled
with top-notch direction, stunning
cinematography, well-developed char
acters and superior acting. Seven
hopefully will someday become pat
of the horror canon. ,
Well there you have it. We highly
recommend not watching these films
all at one sitting. If you do, then you

Thursday's line-up includes the
ever popular Roots Rock show and a
show highlighting British music. Al-
though the content of these shows
may seem to be self-explanatory, the
neat thing about them is that you get
less mainstream artists and more un-
signed, independent artists on WZMB.
In comparison to other radio stations,
WZMB gives listeners more of a jump
on the next mainstream big artist The
station also allows a sneak peak at
the sound of many bands who come
to the Attic or Peasant's Cafe down-
town. Instead of possibly throwing
away money on a band you've never
heard, you can listen to WZMB and
find out what they sound like first for
One of the biggest days for
WZMB listeners is Friday. At 1 p.m
the Friday Request Fest goes into ef-
fect and lasts until 6 p.m. at which
point the Top 25 show takes over.
Then at 8 p.m it's flashback time with
the Retro show. The Retro show lasts
until 2 a.m. and features mostly re-
quests from listeners who are often
at parties, out driving around, or just
reliving part of their youth. Different
from the retro shows found on hit
radio stations. WZMB's Retro show
plays more obscure songs from the
'70s and '80s.
Ranging from Night Ranger's
"Sister Christian" to Nucleus' "Jam On
It all the way to favorites like Dexy's
Midnight Runners' "Come On Eileen
Modern English's "I Melt With You
and "Mickey" by Toni Basil, the retro
show plays something for everyone
who wants to stroll down the road that
was their musical childhood. However,
the Retro show can also give you an
opportunity to hear songs not avail-
able anywhere else.
A prime example is "Mickey" by
Toni Basil. Most people instantly know
"Mickey" and happily sing along, but
WZMB can throw a curve if you're not
careful. WZMB has a version of
"Mickey" with Basil singing every-
thing in Spanish. Don't ever expect
to hear this version on you favorite
Top 40 station, but on WZMB it's
Some of the most eclectic music
can be heard on weekend mornings
which are filled with a Jazz show as
well as Crossover and World Music
features. However. Saturdays and Sun-
days on WZMB consist mostly of the
Reggae and Club 91 shows which run
from noon until midnight. Both shows
each run six hours in length. Late
Saturday night listeners can tune into
techno and industrial music on the
Steel Trax show and the fast and
heavy Metal show from 1-6 a.m.
So, no matter what your tastes
are, WZMB probably offers something
to your liking. Even if nothing in-
stantly jumps out at you, next time
you're screaming in frustration at the
lack of musical choices on the Green-
ville radio dial, flip to 91.3 for a few
minutes. The sound coming out of
your speakers might just surprise you.

Team hosts CAA
College is a time for fun, party-
ing, and the most important element
of all college life is an education. For
some, there is the commitment of
sports that sometimes interferes with
the fun of being a college student
These people have to sacrifice in or-
der to excel, and Amanda Atkinson,
a junior on the Pirate womens swim
team has done just that.
Atkinson, just like the rest of her
teammates, puts in long hours in the
gym as well as the pool, to make the
womens swim team the winner that
"On Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday we do dry land, which con-
sists of weight lifting, and on
Tuesday's and Thursday's we do sit-
ups Atkinson, said.
For Atkinson the road to ECU
was easy to find. Her sister Rachel
Atkinson, was also a swimmer at
ECU. Although her sister swam here,
she soon found out that swimming
in college was a bit different from
swimming in high school. She found
that she was a bit intimidated when
she first started, but she soon real-
ized that the team was like a family,
and everybody there would help each
"Practices were harder, it was a
big change from high school
Although the practices are hard
they are also fun, afternoon practices
are not as bad as morning practices.
"The hardest part of morning
practices is jumping into the water,
it is so cold in the morning Atkinson
said 1 never had morning practices
in high school, but it does wake a
For Atkinson there are times
when she would just like to be a nor-
mal college student but, for the most
part swimming is a lot of fun, it is a
good motivational tool. There are
times when Atkinson would like to
come in from class and take it easy,
but she knows she has to keep her
priorities in order.
"Swimming keeps me in line
With Atkinson's sister being a
swimmer here, she was able to see
what ECU swimming was all about
Head swim coach Rick Kobe re-
cruited her first and he went on to
become almost like a second father

not have anybody else to turn to.
Coach Kobe will be there for her, with
the absence of her real father at
school, Coach Kobe performs those
duties when needed.
Her parents, just like the rest of
the swim team parents are very sup-
portive. They go to all the meets, and
after the American swim meet on Sat-
urday, the team was able to get a
good homecooked meal from her
"Although my father knows little
about swimming, he is still very sup-
portive. My parents never pressured
me to be a swimmer Atkinson said.
One would think that Atkinson
only has time for swimming, and it is
big part of her life, but she is a nor-
mal college student, just like every-
body else here at ECU. She has her
likes and dislikes. Some of the things
that she likes to do most is hang out
with her friends, watch movies and,
whenever she can, she likes to sleep
The biggest influence on
Atkinson has been her sister. Even-
tually, she said, she would like to
work with her sister. Atkinson never
had the opportunity in high school
to swim with her sister, so when she
came to ECU as a freshman she fi-
nally got that opportunity.
To say that Atkinson is a team
player is very true, one of her goals
for the season is that her teammates
will be able to capture a third CAA
title and she does have personal goals
"The biggest goal I have is that
I place in the top three in the confer-
ence and I would like to get the var-
sity record for the 100 and 200 back-
stroke Atkinson said.
All the hard work that Atkinson
has put in is seemingly starting to
pay off, at the Pirates' first meet of
the year at American University she
had a great meet.
"Amanda swam great Kobe
So, Pirates, look for Atkinson to
be one of the stars for the ECU swim
team throughout the year.
Excitement has been brewing in
ECU's Scales field house, especially
in the cross country offices, with
thoughts of hosting the CAA Cross
Country Championships in just a few
The site of the race will be the
cross country course at Lake Kristi
Park in Greenville. This, as most
people may remember, was the site of
the 1996 U.S. Open Ski Champion-
ships and now the park will host the
battle for the CAA crown.
This "ear, cross country fans here
in Greenville can look forward to an
intense battle for the crown with the
usual powerhouses. James Madison
and V'illiam and Mary, but don't for-
get the host team.
For years, the CAA conference
meet was held in Williamsburg, Va. at
the home course for the Tribe of Wil-
liam and Mary.
"The conference was starting to
get tired of traveling up to Virginia
every year, but politics had a lot to do
with that" Women's Coach Choo Jus-
After long talks, conference offi-
cials decided to start rotating the meet
throughout the conference and ECU
came up first for the rotation.
Running on their home course
will give the Bucs an advantage when
it comes to the knowledge of the
course's nooks and crannies, not to
mention the emotional lift it will give
a building program, running in front
of ECU fans on the weekend of home-
"The guys' team will be especially
pumped up for this one, but the girls
are laid back about the situation, but
they're still excited about the situa-
tion Justice said.
ECU's men will have to be
pumped up to stop another powerful
William and Mary team, which will be
defending its title from last season.
Sophomore Jeremy Coleman will try
to improve on last year's 27th place
finish in last year's meet, which was
good enough for him to be the top
Other runners that may catch the
crowd's attention will be transfer An-
drew Worth, and Jamie Mance, as well
as Justin England.
"This is an improved guys' team,
and they're ready to make some noise
on Saturday Justice said.
The womens race will be a dog
fight as it was last season with James
Madison leading the way, but the
Dukes have cause for caution.
"James Madison always has a
strong team, but if they aren't care-
ful, George Mason could slip in and
take it" Justice said.
The Lady Pirates will be coming
into the meet as a dangerous team,
finishing fourth in last season's CAA's
with returning runners such as CAA
Rookie- of-the- Year Suzanne Bellamy.
The excitement is building and
preparations are being made for
"That's the only problem with
being the host" Justice said. "You
have to do so much to put on the race;
you have to divert your attention away
from the team the week of the meet"
The meet will be held at Lake
Kristi on Saturday, beginning with the
women's race at 10 am.

Carolina is 3-9 away from
home, including 1-3 this season.
The most recent loss, 20-9 Sunday
in Philadelphia, began a stretch in
which the Panthers play five of

Carolina has just two rushing
touchdowns on the road in the 1
12-year history of the franchise
and is constantly plagued by prob-

The Panthers' defense, which has
been impressive at home, also runs
into trouble on the road, as evi-

backup quarterback in the NFL,

Cornerback Eric Davis, who
joined Carolina in the offseason af-
ter spending his first six years with
San Francisco, said the Panthers
need to develop a different mind set
on the road.
