Three ECU students await day in court
Amy L. Royster
Assistant News Editor
Three ECU students were ar-
rested, charged with an alleged as-
sault on a female and scheduled to
appear in court at the end of the
month. The victim of the alleged as-
sault says the incident was racially
According to both Greenville Po-
lice reports and ECU police reports,
Kevin Scott Pankey, 19, George Ed-
ward Cogdell Jr 18 and Philmore
Graven, 19, all of Scott Residence
Hall, were served warrants by the
ECU police on Oct. 14. Pankey and
Cogdell were charged with aiding and
abetting of the assault. Graves was
charged with assault on a female by
a male over 18.
Emma Speight of Greenville who
was driving a school bus for Pitt
County Schools alleges she was
stopped at the light on the corner of
Greenville Blvd. and Charles St. when
the three students pulled up beside
"I heard somebody yell, 'Hey
man, watch me spit on that black
bitch,7" Speight said. "At the corner
of my eye 1 saw a car start to pull
forward. The guy in the back seat
leaned up so that he could spit on
me. That is when 1 knew they were
talking about me
According to Greenville police
reports, one of the students then
said, "Yeah man, do it before Graves
allegedly spit at Speight.
Speight said she tried to close
the window to avoid being hit by the
saliva but, due to a prior vandalism
of the school bus, the window was
difficult to shut quickly.
Speight copied down the license
plate number of the vehicle which
carried the three ECU students and
turned into the Allied Health Build-
ing parking lot.
"In my confusion i ended up in
the middle of the intersection and
had to take a turn off of my route
Speight said. "I was trying to protect
Speight said she approached an
ECU police officer and told her what
had happened. She was advised by the
officer to file charges with the Pitt
County magistrate. Warrants were is-
sued by the magistrate for the arrest
of all three ECU students.
ECU police department records
indicate that after warrants were
served by ECU police officers, the stu-
dents appeared before the magistrate,
who released the students on a $300
Speight said the three students
appeared before ECU'S honor board
on Nov. 21. Speight was in attendance
when the students appeared before
the honor board but did not have the
opportunity to speak to them.
According to Speight, Graves re-
ceived six months academic probation,
20 hours community service, and
must appear before the honor board
again on March 20 with a ten page
"Two of the boys (Pankey and
Cogdell) got nothing Speight said.
"Anytime someone helps somebody
else commit a crime, they should be
"There is really nothing I have to
say other than I hope they meet the
right God one day Speight said.
The assault occurred about two
months ago, but misplaced ECU Po-
lice Department documents pre-
vented TEC from reporting it in a
more timely manner. The incident
was brought to TEC's attention by
members of the campus organization
Allied Blacks for Leadership and
Executive Board members of
ABLE, including Vice President
Tytishia Frazier, expressed concern
over the incident and the delay in ju-
"This incident is just another
wake up call which shows that we as
students need to be aware of the in-
cidents that happen on and around
campus Frazier said, adding that
the organization offers full support
"We feel that because the victim
is an African-American, we should be
there to offer any support or assis-
tance she may need concerning this
matter Frazier said
The three students are scheduled
to appear in Pitt County District Court
Dec. 20 at 9:00 a.m.
Speight said the incident has
made her a little more afraid now.
"You try to dislocate yourself
from people who do these kinds of
things Speight said. "Initially, I was
shocked. Now I am more hurt"

The School of Art will be holding its annual holiday sale Dec. 5-7 at
the Jenkins Fine Arts Center. Artwork, which has been created by over
200 art students, will be on sale to the public in the lobby near the Gray
"Most of the profits go to students and some go to art guilds, such as
the Ceramics Guild and Craftsman East said Cynthia Blamire, presi-
dent of the show. "A percentage of the money is to be used for educa-
tional purposes such as for visiting artists, workshops, travel abroad and
conferences funded by scholarships
"It is the primary fund-raiser for visiting visual artists and other
fund driven occasions in the School of Art said faculty advisor Chuck
Chamberlain. "The work that the students do is not part of their
coursework so more than a majority of the money goes to the individuals
The holiday sale will feature many different gifts and pieces of art
such as clay work, ceramic, small sculptures, hand-painted cards, fabric
and jewelry. Seven art guilds will be involved in the sale and will be
receiving some of the profit Students who participate in the sale feel the
results of their work is worthwhile.

print- making. "A lot of my classwork is independent work and although
I don't like selling my work, the sale depends on what the market in
Greenville will bear. It also gives people a chance to buy high quality

Coach Logan's office joined
forces with the Ridgewood Manor
Nursing Center to recruit some eager
and loyal fans this year. With the ef-
forts made on both sides, it was pos-
sible for the residents to attend the
ECU football games.
Virginia Darden, a resident at
Ridgewood Manor, is the mother of
Travis Darden, one of ECU'S football
players. Darden had never been able
to attend one of her son's games.
When this was discovered, the facility
contacted Logan's office, and worked
out a situation in which ECU provided
not only a ticket for Mrs. Darden, but
also for staff members, so that she
could go to each home game. The rest
home bought two blocks of season tick-
ets to home football games so other
residents would have the opportunity
to attend games as well.

drain the lake for crop production.
The project became too costly,
however, and the lodge was turned
over to the government, who main-
tained the buildings and grounds
until ECU expressed an interest in
developing a research field station at
the site in 1995. The site now serves

Couch potato volunteers needed for study
The ECU School of Health and

This happens because you lose type

study will demonstrate that the eld-
erly still have the ability to gam
strength and respond to weight train-
ing as the young do.
The selected participants will
undergo a series of tests determining
their gait pattern and measuring how
well they descend steps and the
strength of theii iegs. This will be n
lowed by training witl tension
exercises, and arm exercises it re-
quested by the participant.

activity in the last year, especially in

Participants must also he between the
ages of 18 to 25 and 60 to 75. be non-

Changes in the recycling pro-
gram raise questions about ECU's
commitment to the environ-
ment- Since 1988. ECU has partici-
pated in recycling activities. These
activities have included providing
recycling bins on campus and resi-
dence halls. The recent disappear-
ance of some of these bins has
caused some to question ECU's
dedication toward recycling.
According to Wilham Koch and
George Armistead of ECU's Envi-
ronmental Health and Safety, the
bins outside of the residence halls
were a student volunteer project.
The bins were borrowed from Pitt
County for three years until the
project was canceled due to misuse
and lack of student interest. Re-
cycled material becomes useless
when garbage is dumped in the re-
cycling bins or the materials are not
However, the cancellation of
this project does not mean that ECU
is downsizing it's recycling efforts.
At the start of the recycling pro-
gram, ECU had one full-time recy-
cling employee, now there are three.
ECU also owns its own garbage
trucks and hauls its garbage.
ECU has an above average rank-
ing for recycling compared to waste.
When asked if he thought ECU was
falling behind. George Armistead
spoke highly of ECU's recycling ef-

Dr. Gene Lanier award-winning spokesman for
freedom on the World Wide Web and Library Studies
professor, has spoken in 40 states about the need for

"When it comes to the Internet, it is like any other

As the chair of the N. C. Library Association,
Lanier has traveled to ail but 10 states speaking about
the access or lack of access to electronic informa-
tion. Recently he spoke to 12 librarians from the
biennial joint conference of the Kentucky Library As-
sociation in Lexington. More recently he spoke to
five libraiians in Reno. Nev.
In his addresses he discusses the Communica-
tions Decency Act tCDA) of 1996. The bill was writ-
ten to protect children by blocking indecent or offen-
sive language on the web. Two of the words deemed
"indecent' that caused block sites were "breast" and
"coupling According to Lanier. America OnLine
recently reacted to the hill by placing blocks on the
two words. One of the blocks prevented the access
to information on breast cancer research.
"The way it (CDA) reads right now, any Net
information blockage could result in a Grated net
Lanier said. "The Internet could be rendered use-
less unless we have free access
One of several other web sites blocked included
a tour of the White House given by first cat. Socks.
Lanier said a few months ago the White House web
site went black for several hours because the word
"coupling" was used in the text of the tour. The
word only referred to something with the President
and the first lady.
Lanier should not be misunderstood about his
feeling on children viewing the Web. He said he has
no problems with parents putting blocks on their
home computers. He cited several programs, such
as Net Nanny, that help watch what sites children
view. The only problem he sees is when people try
to tell other people's children what to view or what
not to view.
"When people ask me about children it's just
parenting, the same parenting that helps children
pick which movies to watch or which books to read
According to Lanier. the good news is that, with
his help, the American Library Association won the
first case against the CDA bill. They won in a fed-
eral district court in Philadelphia. However, the de-
cision was appealed and will reach the Supreme
Court this month. They hope to hear a decision by

Mike Kelly, owner and adminis-
trator of Ridgewood Manor Nursing
Center, is one of the first people to
say this was anything but a bad idea.
"We thought it was a shame to
have such a major Division I college
right down the road and not support
it and not give our people access to
the sporting events Kelly said.
Kelly said he is greatly apprecia-
tive of what the university has done
"The university and Coach
Logan's office were very gracious to
allow us to get our season tickets and
use them in the handicap section
Kelly said. "I think that was a real
consideration for them to give us and
we appreciate it"
Kelly said they usually take any-
where from six to eight people, de-
pending on the type of resident go-
ing that day.
"Some people require more
staff Kelly said. "So, if we're tak-
ing more people who require a lot of
assistance from staff, then we can
only take about six; that is in addi-
tion to Mrs. Darden
Kelly said that some of the
people in the young adult unit, which
houses people from 18-45 years old
love going to the ball games. He said
that not many people realize how
much something as normal as this
means to them.
"When you are a nursing home
resident, your world is, at times, just
the walls of the facilities and maybe
a courtyard Kelly said. "You can't
imagine how special it becomes when
you go from that to a world where
there are like 27,000 people in a sta-
dium, with a band playing, and all
this activity and hype going on
Kelly said he hopes to by pos-
sible buying three blocks of season
tickets. He also said residents are
planning to attend the basketball
games as well.
According to Kelly, Ridgewood
Manor Nursing Center is not just con-
cerned with a sports relationship, but
a broader one.
"We are interested in an ongo-
ing relationship with the university,
particularly with some of our
younger people Kelly said.

Series offers tips to the
The way of the independent trav-
eler is rough and exciting. If in our
first article, you discovered you are
an independent traveler, then you
will need to know many things be-
Lie embarking on your journey.
"Make sure you have a map of
the terrain, like a trail map, to help
you find your way said Cathy
Brown of The Bicycle Post's wilder-
ness store, The Outpost.
Many books are available that
cover the many problems you may
encounter when on your own with
the wilderness. A popular book with
many helpful hints is How to Shit
in the Woods. Informational books
are available at libraries or can be
ordered from any wilderness shop.
Calling a tour guide service and dis-
cussing the possible pitfalls of the
area is also helpful.
"Remember when choosing your
destination, you should consider
many different points. Do you speak
the language, or can you take a class
to learn? Is it feasible for you to get
there economically and safely? Never
forget that getting there is half the
adventure Brown said.
When packing, you need to
think logically. Everything that you
need has to fit on your back. Mod-
els of backpacks are available now
that come with many new advan-
tages. Some are equipped with
wheels and a handle for easy moving
or a zip-off day pack, in case you have
a stable camp and just want to hike
a few miles and then come back.
Remember the activities that you
have chosen to do and choose cloth-
ing that will be the most comfortable
and functional in any type of weather.
"Clothing that can double or
triple is great on an outdoor jour-
ney. Pants that can zip off into
shorts, shirts that can have a fleece
lining zipped in all these are great.
Choose clothing that can dry fast and
is lightweight Brown said.
Making a checklist before pack-
ing is always helpful. The list should
include the following: flashlight wa-
ter purifying or iodine tablets, wil-
derness permit, maps, compass, sun-
screen, first aid kit, knife, matches,
rain gear, insect repellent and a base-
ball cap (to keep ticks out of your
When you arrive, it is important
to get up close and personal with the
native culture and people in order to
get the full effect of the experience.
"Supporting the local merchants
gives you a real feeling of the place
and culture. Trying local cuisines
from restaurants that the locals en-
joy is a much better experience than
dining in the lobby of the local Holi-
day Inn. You could do that at home.
And remember to buy souvenirs from
the local people, not some trinket
that has made in Taiwan' written on
the bottom Brown said.
Another important thing to re-
member is to be positive and patient.
You are a visitor there and cannot
expect everything to go as you wish
or at the pace that you would prefer.
Being polite and smiling will get you
much farther with people than
screaming and blowing off steam.
"When you travel, you are in
their country. You need to respect
the local culture and customs. You
are the outsider, so to get the feel of
the inside you have to play along.
Don't be a jerk, or you will miss out
on some really great experiences
Arsons at two UT fraternity houses investigated
Police are investigating two alleged arsons at campus fraternity houses at the University of Tennessee. Fires
were intentionally started at the Phi Gamma Delta and Kappa Sigma houses recently, Bert Sams, associate vice
chancellor for administrative and student affairs.
A fire was set in either a blanket or rags at the Phi Gamma Delta house. A cook smelted the smoke early in the
morning on Oct. 26 and notified officials. Fire officials recently ruled the fire as an arson.
Someone allegedly threw a molotov cocktail at the back of the Kappa Sigma house early in the morning on
Oct31. , .
Some bushes caught on fire, but damage to the house was minimal. Police are investigating both cases.
Female student abducted, assaulted at UT
A University of Tennessee student was allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted off campus.
The student was at the Magnolia Exxon station pumping gas when a man pulled a gun on her and made her
get into his car, University of Tennessee Police Detective Debby Perry said. They left the gas station and he
allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Exam cheater confesses all at UO
For 34 years, the guilt gnawed at Linda Russell.
Russel retired from a successful career as a teacher and a therapist but in her mind she knew she was a cheat.
So last fall, Russell called the University of Oregon and confessed. She had cheated on a crucial exam she had
needed to pass to get her degree.
Elaine Greene, associate dean of students who handles cheating cases, said this isn't the first time an ex-
student has made such a confession.
Russell, now 56 and living in Washington state, said that she put off the required history course until her
senior year, then took an incomplete to avoid taking the final exam. By spring quarter, she couldn't put it off any
' The professor surprised her by handing her the exam and telling her to goinish it She slipped into the
women's lounge, pulled out her notes, and completed the test which she passed.
There is no statute of limitation on cheating offenses at the university, but Greene said revoking Russell's
diploma would be too harsh a penalty. Instead, Russell will write an article for the student newspaper about the
importance of academic integrity, most likely focusing on the corrosive effect of dishonesty.

The 1996 school year was a tre-
mendous year for the Greek system
at ECU. Bill Burnette is concluding
his 19 term as Interfratemity Coun-
cil (IFC) President and has seen Greek
numbers rise 20 percent among all
the fraternities and watched a surge
of overall Greek unity.
On Dec. 3, ECU held its annual
elections for the executive positions
on the IFC for the 1997 school year.
The elections were open to any male
Greek member currently enrolled at
"We have had a great year and 1
am sad to step down, but at the same
time. I am proud of what has been
accomplished. The executive staff has
worked wonders in organizing many
events over the past year that has pro-
vided much unity Burnette said.
Some events that helped boost
Greek morale during 1996 were the
all-Greek tailgate, Greek Week and a
prosperous rush last Spring and this
Fall. IFC also expanded from 17 to
18 individual social fraternities.
Looking toward the new year, there
is much work to be done and some big
shoes to be filled as the new officers
begin to make their transitions into of-
fice. Justin Bandy, the new executive
vice president is ready for and excited
about the upcoming new year.
"My hat goes off to Bill and his staff
for boosting Greek numbers and really
getting people more motivated about
being Greek altogether. I was a little ner-
vous at first when I received the nomi-
nation Bandy said.
"But quickly, that turned into a
great feeling of confidence thanks to
some useful advice from Reid Griffith,
1996 IFC Treasurer. My mam goal is to
keep the fire, that the 1996 staff has
started, burning and make it grow even
bigger as our new staff adds more fuel
to it" Bandy said.
"I have all the confidence in the
world that this new staff will indeed
keep our objective intact as well as
mix in some fresh new ideas. It has
been a privilege to represent IFC as
their President and I will certainly
miss all the fun activities after 1 gradu-
ate this weekend Burnette said.
"We have a lot of hard work
ahead of us and are prepared for the
challenges that we know of and that
will arise Incombant President Chris
Greeks are optimistic as 1996
comes to a close. It should be an-
other great year for the Greek sys-
tem at ECU if Bandy's confidence
and drive toward a goal of Greek
unity is shared by all others on the
1997 staff and the Greek community
as a whole.

A bit of parting advice
TTie East Carolinian
"And now the end is near, and so
I face the final curtain
Sorry, I've always wanted to put
a Frank Sinatra quote in one of my
articles, but it's true. Your beloved
opinion columnist is graduating. I
have had so much fun over my nine
years here at ECU, just kidding, well
five and a half years. Shut up.
I've learned lots of things here
at ECU over the years. I've learned
what it's like to live in a dorm where
you can only get two channels (you
lucky bastards get cable now). I've
learned what it's like, as you read in
one of my last articles, to fight the
space stealer for a parking space. I've
also learned that when I leave this in-
stitution, I want a high paying job. Not
a lawyer, not a doctor. That's right, I
want to own the Wright Place and the
Croatan, and get all that money you
pay for overpriced lunches and soda.
What is it with those plaaces anyway?
Everytime I had to go to one of those
places for lunch, they sure "tore me a
new one" if you get my drift
Ah yes, let's not forget Public
Safety. Is it just me, or do some of
those guys sit there salivating, just
waiting for the meter to expire? When
I do get a ticket, there's always some
1978 model station wagon behind me
that has been there for days and
DOESN'T HAVE A TICKET.
There's just something about
riding in one of those little golf carts
that turns an ordinary person into an
emotionless ticket-writing machine.
Oh, nevermind that it's the last day
of exams, at 2 p.m and my car (with
the warning lights flashing) that has
I want to own
Place and the
only been there for five minutes gets
one of those dreaded pink slips put
under the wiper while I am unload-
ing my furniture. I've written so many
appeals, when I go into the Public
Safety office, they go "You again?"
Sheesh, the stuff I put up with.
And what is it about some teach-
ers who wear the exact same outfit
everyday. Why is that? I've always
wondered what compels someone to
wear the same thing every single soli-
tary day of class. If you're going to
wear the same thing every day, make
it a rhinestone outfit or a tux or some-
thing, but not a denim shirt and kha-
kis for God's sake.
All kidding aside, I'm gonna miss
the Emerald City. For one thing, I am
moving back to Raleigh, where you
have to wait to watch The Young and
the Restless until 4 p.m instead of
the more convenient 12:30 p.m. time
slot here in Greenville. Despite that
hardship, I think I'll make it I'll miss
my Literature class on Thursdays (you
guys are nuts!) Thanks Melanie! You
know something else, I'll also miss the
free Internet time in the library. I tell
you, there's nothing like downloading
smut off the Internet in the library.
Ahhh, just watching the expressions
on people's faces as they walk by is
worth the student technology fee
One thing I'm really gonna miss
is being down here on football game
weekends. Those are the best By the
way. congratulations to the Pirates.
What a game! I went to State for a
year, and I had fun calling my old
NCSU colleagues about that "swiss
cheese defense" of theirs. I doubt I'll
ever see another running back get 350
yards in my lifetime. Way to go, Harley!
(By the way, Scott when you turn pro,
go to Miami. PLEASE!)
Well everyone, it's been real. It's
about time to put on the black robe,
the gold tassel, and to go strut my
stuff. For those of you that will be out
there freezing your butts off in Ficklen
with me, congratulations! To those of
you who aren't there yet keep going.
But don't go too fast There will come
a day when you actually miss those
all-nighters and yeah, those parties
too. Thank you for reading The East
Carolinian; thank you for reading my
columns, and thank you for giving me
an opportunity to share my views with
you. Oh yes, a parting piece of advice
for you. I was going to give you some
profound advice or a wise, old saying,
but ummm. . . run for an SGA posi-
tion. You know, or you'll be one of
the unlucky slobs who actually has
to pay their tuition.

Let us know what you think.
Your voice can be heard!
Back in junior high I used to
wrestle. I was never anything spe-
cial but I could hold my own. I
tended to keep my mouth shut and
let my actions do the talking.
On the eve of a match against
our arch rival 1 received a phone call
from the guy I was supposed to go
against the next. day. He informed
me of the horrible defeat I was to
suffer the next day (something in-
volving pain, loss of girlfriend to him
and embarrassment to my family; if
memory serves me correctly). I
thanked him for going out of his way
to warn me and that I was going to
nominate him for the Virginia Beach
Outstanding Sportsmanship award.
He was, however, a little off. With
30 seconds left in the third period
and me being one point away from
winning on points, I dislocated his �
shoulder. He also didn't know that
my girlfriend had already dumped
me two weeks earlier for someone
in high school. (This of course after
the speech about expanding our ho-
rizons by seeing other people. Its
okay she ended up fat and unhappy.
Whoever says there is no such thing
as justice in dating hasn't hung out
with the kid.)
I know that this sounds like just
another "recollections of greatness"
story. It isn't.
When I came to the Emerald
City, my first real assignment was
to find an article involving ECU in
the Raleigh News and Observer. At
the time the only school always
rooted against was Virginia Tech.
The article was some sports writer
alumni from N.C. State suggesting
that we should drop down to Divi-
sion II football. The next one I read
was the next Fall after the Duke
loss, unfounded attacks again. Last
fall there was a brilliant piece by
another State alumni stating how
we didn't deserve to be in a game
with Stanford. (What was that score
The last blow was an article in
my paper at home stating that N.C.
State doesn't feel they should have
to play us. There was also a refer-
ence to the fact that we take all the
leftovers that couldn't get in there.
Friday evening I found myself
in the Charlotte Convention Cen-
ter. It was a good time and it gave
me a chance to see a lot of recent
graduates. After leaving, we headed
off to a bar. Around closing time
as a group of us were leaving a
bunch of N.C. State's finest shout-
ing ECU (pick and insert favorite
insult here). There was also some-
thing in regards to how we were
going to lose the next day (noth-
ing about pain this time around, I
was disappointed). I asked if they
thought being three and seven was!
a good thing. I also told them that !
it was okay if they wanted to get -
back with me the next day since
they were going home alone and;
would have plenty of time to think
about it. ;

There is nothing more use-
less than screaming at a wall.
It's just spittle and bricks,
bricks and spittle. However, if
you put enough voices to-
gether, that wall might just be
blown over. So join in another
futile attempt to change the
status quo and listen to a
"Scream at the Wall
My roommate put a tree up
this past Sunday. It's a very nice
tree, tall enough to almost touch
the ceiling, especially with the
"old world" Santa Claus figurine
gracing the tip of it. The tree is
decorated with white and blue
lights, glowing steadily, looking
like winter, more like the way
Christmas has always felt to me
than the flashing strobe effect of
the multi-colored, blinking lights
most trees have. My friend is
making ornaments out of puzzle
pieces, and I see the beginnings
of a tradition in her. I can see
her with her family 20 years from
now. Puzzle-piece ornaments will
be inseparable from Christmas
for her then, like trees or egg nog
or stockings on the chimney.
When I think about Christ-
mas, one of the things that
strikes me is the way Christmas
is the same, yet different for each
person, for each family. I have no-
ticed all throughout my life the
result of some of these differ-
ences, the quarrels that different
groups of people seem to have
over the "meaning of Christmas"
or the origin of Christmas.
I have heard, for example,
many times, charges from certain
types that the Roman Catholic
Church stole the idea of Christ-
mas from the pagan Romans. I
have also heard from Christians
heated arguments against the
presence of Santa Claus in their
religious holiday. I find more and
more that both of these positions
have become rather silly-sound-
ing to me.
Having become a lover and
student of older world views,
such as the Classical and Medi-
eval modes of thought, I have
formed my own opinion on both
of these, especially given the in-
teresting differences between the
cultures (ours and those older
ones). 1 did some puttering about
in the public library recently, and
I came upon the "holiday" books.
Curious about this very subject,
I leafed through them, and I did
discover the root of the "stolen
I myself am not aware of ac-
tual documents verifying the
Church's intent to win over con-
verts by absorbing holidays. They
may exist, but as I dug further
and further into my research. I
found none. What 1 did find was
a skeleton of facts that could be
interpreted the way many have
popularly viewed Christmas �
that the Church did "steal"
Christmas from pagan Romans,
specifically, the Winter Solstice
feast. But, having read up on the
way the ancients thought, I
doubt more and more that this
is the whole truth.
One of the things that is ap-
parent about the Greeks, then
the Romans, and then the early
Christians, is that they did not
view religion as a function of
culture as we do today. The
Greek philosophers, especially

Don't worry, the copy editor

The ECU School of Music and
the Greenville Museum of Art think
they may be able to help you out.
They're not going to take your ex-

to fill your head for a few hours
with something other than chem-

the temporary occupant of your

second concert in their "Sundays
in the Gallery" series.
The concert is set to begin at
2 p.m. Performing are School of

(cello) and John O'Brien (harpsi-
chord). They will perform the un-
accompanied sonatas of J.S. Bach.
Admission to the concert is

Al Pacino's Shakespearian film, Looking for Richard, is just one of many excellent pieces
of cinematic fare that local theaters decided not to carry.Another reason to hate this town.
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
The year is almost over, which
means movie theaters across the na-
tion will be flooded with an inordi-
nate amount of new releases. Next
to summer, the Christmas season is
the most lucrative moment in any cin-
ematic year. Studios rush out their
films to not only cash in on the hun-
gry consumer market but also to be
considered for any Oscar nomina-
As much as 1 complain about the
lack of cinematic choices available in
Greenville, our emerald city did get
several notable films. We brushed up
our Shakespeare with an updated
version of Romeo � Juliet our ac-
tion taste buds were satisfied with
Bruce Willis' hard-edged perfor-
mance in Last Man Standing; and
science fiction fans were thrilled by
a new voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise
in Star Trek: First Contact.
Still, there were many highly
publicized movies that seemed to
miss the Greenville area. The purpose
of this article is to highlight several
films that should have played in
Greenville, but didn't.
Bound - Sure, this film involv-
ing a lesbian couple entangled in
some gangster scandal has been
called a Tarantino copycat, but it ctill
impressed the critical community.
Featuring performances by Jennifer
Tilly and Gina Gershon, this film is
further proof that much of young
Hollywood has talent.
Swingers - A movie centering
around a bunch of guys out on the
town in search of women and booze
may sound like a Porky's sequel, but
this film reportedly puts such a fun
spin on a tired concept that it trans-
forms into something unique.
The Last Supper - Any film in-
volving a group of grad students who
invite ultra-conservative, right-wing
morons to dinner just so they can
kill them is definitely worth a glance.
This bleak comedy is the first feature
film by director Stacy Title, and it
stars the seductive Cameron Diaz.
Kansas City - It's a Robert
Altman film. It's about Jazz. It fea-
tures the new class of Jazz musicians

Back from the depths of their
first album are Bush. The British
quartet shocked the nation last
year with their multi-platinum re-
lease Sixteen Stone. Now with their
new release, Razorblade Suitcase,
the band seems to have the world
in their hands.
The album starts off with a
growling dog that leads you into a
song called "Personal Holloway a
song that seems to reflect the im-
ages of Gavin Rossdale's desire to
live life to the fullest. This reminds
me, I once read an article in Roll-
ing Stone in which Gavin talked of
a great soccer player named
Socrates. He said that he also had
a chance for a soccer career, but
like Socrates he wanted the girls
and the drugs.
If that's what the business is
all about to him, so be it. The man
sounds great, and after working
with new producer Steve Albini,
(producer of Nirvana's In Utero) he
sounds better than ever. Even the
whole band is tighter.
Unfortunately, most of the
songs on this album, like "Greedy
Fly" and "Insect Kin are simply
Nirvana's leftovers. Come on guys,
check your image.
The third track on this record
is the most positive. It's called
"Swallowed and the band seems
to have made their mark with it as
it climbs video and alternative
charts rapidly. The song starts off,
of course, with Gavin just being
Gavin. He sings and plays and lays
down the whole course of the song
before anyone else has entered his
realm. With respect, the rest of the
band does soothe their way into a
collage of harmony and rhythm.
Who would have thought Bush
would mix into a British pop song.
Who would have thought?
The best songs on this album
are nearer to the end. In other
words, if you want to get the most
out of your Bush, you have to dig
deep. You'll find a song called
"Communicator Listen closely, it's
along the same lines as Pearl Jam's
"Immortality Yet, the song doesn't
copy anything. It just lets you know
how open this band is to chance
Razorblade Suitcase is a
darker album Its presence alone
marks the second coming of Bush,
exactly what they needed. The big
bonus is the instrumental layout
the band has chosen as its setting.
Violins set the scene more so than
anything on this record; however,
Gavin's voice has set the band aside
to be the alternative world's post-
Nirvana rock gods.
Although the band hasn't
given all it can yet, I'm somehow
convinced that the better days are
yet to come. As for the rest of the
band, I challenge them to keep play-
ing, to find a more elusive melody.
Loosen the grip, not the intensity,
and groove just groove.

Are yoo feefing overwhelmed
by the last minute crunch of this
semester? One of the biggest con-
cerns about stress is its impact on
the immune system. One study dem-
onstrated that college students ex-
perience a decrease in immune sys-
tem functioning and a higher rate
of illness when under exam stress.
The end of the fall semester may be
particularly stress-producing due to
the combination of papers, exams
and the upcoming holidays. Here
are a few suggestions to help stu-
dents better manage these last few
weeks of school:
? Term papers can be a large
and overwhelming project Try to
divide large tasks into smaller ones.
Avoid procrastinating until the
night before to complete a paper.
� Balance "shoulds" and
"Swats We aS have things we do
not want to do. Often people use
"wants to avoid "shoulds Ask
yourself if hat you are doing is
something you "should" be doing
or something you "want" to do.
� Try to keep things in perspec-
tive. The overwhelming nature
of the end of the semester
is only temporary. Once
the semester is over
there will be a three
week break from the in-
tensity of classes.
� Try to eat well.
The tendency is to A
consume high fat and
sugar foods when
stressed, which often
lead people to feel worse.
People also rely on caffeine
and other drugs to maintain
"alertness Unfortunately, a "crash"
may result from the overuse of these
drugs which would lead to less pro-
ductivity in the long run.
� It's quality, not quantity. Some-
times students mistakenly believe that
marathon study sessions are helpful
Granted, everyone has their personal
style of studying. However, most
people need to plan study breaks. In-
dividual study break needs vary. Study
breaks might be as simple as taking a
10-minute mental "vacation" from
studies or meeting friends for a meal.
The point is to plan study breaks that
balance your needs for studying with-
out study breaks becoming a means
� Plan your time. Using a calen-
f o r
weeks of class,

per writing schedule for yourself
and try your best to stick to ft. If
the schedule is not realistic, it may

WAMMO from page 13
about going to school when he was
five dressed up as his hero for Hal-
loween. As he walked up the school,
a fifth-grader came up and said
"Hey Batman, let's see how tough
you are He then tells about get-
ting punched in the stomach, just
before another fifth grader comes
to his rescue and beats up the first
fifth-grader. Trust me, Wammo says
it in a way worth hearing for your-
"Children of the Corn Nuts" is
the first single off the CD. A
countryish little number. "Chil-
dren" is reminiscent of Todd
Snider's "Talking Seattle Grunge
Rock Blues Wammo uses the
three minutes and 11 seconds of
music here to whine about how he
was "flannel before flannel was
cool Also, in retaliation to the
alternative explosion, he's switch-
ing to polyester.
The thing that makes Wammo
stand out is that he's not a singer,
and he doesn't try to be one. In-
stead, he uses his poetic back-
ground and does beat poetry over
simple yet weird music. For ex-
ample, "There is Too Much Light
In This Bar is a chance for him
to sound-off about being a mem-
ber of "Generation X He reminds
listeners that Billy Idol's first band
was called Generation X and, to
sum up his message, he doesn't
want to be named after anything
dealing with Billy Idol.
"A Real Gone Guy" picks up
the ranting and raving in double
time. Here Wammo gripes about
being fired from an "alternative"
radio station for playing Ice T's
"Freedom Of Speech He also
complains about the state of
today's music and defends the joys
of vinyl records over the laser-tech-
nology of CD's.
Basically there is simply too
much information on this album
to sum up in this article. This CD
deserves a good listen. With prices
like they are, you may want to
think twice before shelling out full
price for Wammo. But if poetry
and weirdness are your thing, help
yourself. Otherwise, keep an eye
out at your local used CD stores
or on your friends' collections.

SCREAM from page 11
Plato, saw philosophy as an attempt
to "mirror" the divine nature, to
come closer to an absolute truth.
Religion for the inheritors of this
idea was not a social institution as

Many of the pagan cultures who
later embraced Christianity, most
notably the Celts and the Germans,
did not so muh renounce their Pa-
gan beliefs as they renounced those
beliefs that contradicted their newer
faith. But in all a. "as of similarity,
they kept their old traditions.
To us, this may seem contradic-
tory, but to them, their pagan reli-
gion was not an enemy of Christian-
ity but a precursor to it. It was pre-
cisely because the druids in Ireland
had memories of prophecies about
a Messianic figure that St. Patrick
was able to convert them: Christian-
ity fit the facts they had. (It was the
druids that contributed mistletoe to
Christmas; it represented purity and

Christ since it was the weapon that

slew Balder, the Norse god of win-
ter who died each fall and rose to

So. when the Roman followers
of Mithra converted to Christianity,
it is not unlikely to assume that they
had no problem with absorbing their
Dies Natalis Solis Invicti (Day of the
Birth of the Unconquered Sun) into
Christianity, making it the Dies
Natalis Christi InvictiDay of the
Birth of the Unconquered Christ).
The feast falls on what we now call
Dec. 25. No, it is not the actual date
of Christ's birth. To them, it did not
matter because they were ascribing
a high honor to Christ; they were
offering a feast up to Him.
I think that this way of looking
at things has merit Truth is not ex-
clusive to one philosophy. Both
Christ and the Apostle Paul drew
from the Greek as well as the He-
brew traditions to preach their mes-
sages. Even the worst of liars, even
the most foolish of fools, sometimes
have truthful insight.
This brings me to the matter of
Santa Claus. Though I may draw
flack for it, I am not one to support
lying to children. Santa does not ex-

But, stories are important. I
love the story of Santa Claus. It is
magical, wondrous, involves flying,
and supports the very idea of Christ-
mas. If, as some say, Jesus is the
"reason for the season then Santa
is the personification of that reason.
If Christ is the gift and giver, then
Santa is the embodiment of the idea
Santa is as much a part of the
culture of Christmas as Jesus is. I
remember a statuette I saw once of
Santa bowing before the Christ child
on the manger, his hat off, his head
bowed reverently. This is how I pic-
ture Santa, the servant of God, do-
ing the acts of God: generous giv-
ing. I am especially fond of the "Fa-
ther Christmas" image that England
has. Santa, a fictitious derivative of
the Sainted Nicholas, is a wonder-
ful aspect of our rich Christmas heri-
I will tell my children the story
of Santa; stories fill our lives with
wonder and remind us of the virtues
(and faults) we often forget. When
they ask me "is there a Santa Claus
I will not lie to my children. But the
story is perhaps more exciting and
powerful because it is a story. It was
Jesus Himself who told stories to get
across the points about life He
wished to make. He knew the power
of a good story, just as He knew the
power of tradition.
Our celebration of Christmas
has a rich and varied tradition. Like
my friend and her puzzle pieces, we
all may celebrate with our own
twists and creativity, but the essen-
tials of Christmas are universal: the
miracle of Christ and the beautiful
story of Santa. So it is with a smile
that I leave you with the words of
Santa: "Merry Christmas to all, and
to all a good night

Delinquent Habits - Delinquent

the west coast, these "Tres

and lyrics. From the opening

good rap can be.
The Chemical Brothers - Live

the best and most expensive mixed

ability to assimilate and codify seem-

behind "Superfly" and "Freddie's

funky songs with politically and cul-

fell on him during a concert) and was
told he might not be able to sing

bragging rights with the victory. Next year the Wolfpack and Pirates will meet in Raleigh.
It looks as if the 8-3 ECU Pirates will not be going
bowling for the third straight year. As of press
time, the chances of ECU getting a bowl bid
looked bleak. Here is a rundown of the bowl
matchups and who's going where. The Pirates, 8-
3, not going to a bowl, but last's year Liberty loser
to the Pirates, Stanford, 6-5 is going to a bowl?
Ain't politics great? Not!

the Liberty Bowl. This year, nothing.
� Before Marcus Crandell's injury
to his left knee in the Arkansas State
game, Crandell became ECU's all-time
leader in career passing yardage with
7,198, in total offense with 7.644
yards, and touchdowns thrown with
58. Crandell got the last two snaps
against N.C. State as a "thank you"
from the coaches for his performance
the last four years.

Swim team Florida bound over break
With Christmas break only a
week away, most of the ECU swim-
mers are packing their bags and head-
ing home for the holidays.
For some, home is right here is
good old North Carolina, but for oth-
ers, home is as far away as California,
Colorado or Massachusetts.
Although the team will be sepa-
rated for the first half of the month
long break, it won't be long before
they join one another in the sunshine
in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Division I swim teams from
schools located all over the east coast
will meet from Dec. 31 to Jan. 13 for
what is considered by most to be the
toughest and most intense training of
Screven Jones, a senior from San
Diego, Calif has traveled to Florida
with the team to train for the past
three years. According to him, the
nine-day-long program is the most de-

straight days has helped the team
become much closer in the past

in Florida together as a team
Teammate Brandon Vermilion
agrees that the bonds between team-
mates are strengthened at this point
of the year.
"Not only do all of the swimmers
get to know each other better, we also
get to have the opportunity to build
relationships with our coaches
Three-hour-long practices will be
held twice a day in an outdoor 50-
meter pool. Each swimmer will be
required to swim anywhere from
8,000-9,000 yards at each session.
There will be some time reserved
each day for relaxing and that is ex-
actly what the team will be doing
when they are not practicing. If they
aren't at the pool, they will be at the
Most of the team will be going to
their respective hometowns from Dec.
14-30, but going home doesn't give
anybody the opportunity to slack off.
To keep in good shape for Florida
training, most of the team is planning
on spending most of their two week
holiday at home in the water.

Eat heartily but don
forget to exercise
It's once again that time of yean
finding a parking spot at the mall is
nearly impossible, you haven't got a
clue what to buy your Aunt Sally, and
every time you walk by your Christ-
mas tree, you step on a needle and your
foot starts bleeding.
You've had just about all you can
take of this "holiday joy" and to make
matters even worse, you are constantly
finding yourself headed toward the
sweet aroma of all of the Christmas
goodies that are guaranteed to be the
source of those extra holiday pounds.
The best way to pass up those un-
wanted holiday pounds is to pass on
the pie, but for most people, resisting
the temptation of December desserts
is an unrealistic task.
If you are planning on taking full
advantage of the variety of treats that
will be served throughout the holidays,
it is likely that by the New Year, those
jeans that are skin tight now will no
longer fit, unless you can find some
time to EXERCISE
If you are active throughout the
year, keeping off extra weight around
the holidays won't be much of a prob-
lem. However, for those of you who
have dedicated your lives to relaxing
on your couch, it is important that you
realize that you must work gradually
into an exercise program.
If you are new to the "workout
world" and your main goal is to weigh
the same amount in 1997 as you did
in 19, you can't go wrong by follow-
ing these helpful tips to staying slim
SLEICHBELL SIT-UPS: Lay Olt
your back with your legs slightly beitC
and apart. Your hands should b$C
placed directly behind your head. TakS
two full counts to sit up and two mm
counts to come back down. Breath?"

With anywhere from 5-20 pounds C
weight in each hand, slowly bring eacfv
arm from your sides to your shoulders, p
and then back down again. You can"
lift your arms to the front of your bod�;
or to the sides, and you can keep theijg
straight or you may bend them.
THE TURKEY TROT: IfyouaiC;
planning on "trotting" around the"
track or the neighborhood, you are
going to need athletic shoes that are
comfortable and fit well. Your "trot"
may consist of walking, jogging, or
sprinting. Be sure to allow 5-10 min-
utes before your journey for a proper :
warm-up and 10 minutes afterward for
a cool down. This will prevent injury
and muscle soreness.
PUMPKIN PIE PUSHUPS: Lay
on your stomach and place your hands j
directly under your arm pits. Curl your
toes downward and raise your body off
the ground. Slowly lower your body
to the ground while keeping your stom-
ach muscles tight and controlled. You
arms should bend a full 90 degrees so"
that your nose lightly touches the floor,

Most of the men's and women's
basketball fans are the students. They
are definitely the most vocal. But when
the month long Christmas break rolls
around, the students go home to visit
friends and family. But the basketball
teams continue to play home games.
The men play six games at home while
the women play five.

we have so many games at home over

Peak attendance for the men dur-
ing the regular season averages around

If the players, fans and school think
that it is not as good to play the games

do they do it?

control over the matter. The conference

until the middle of January when the

Depression is a bunch, of symptoms
exhibited by weak people.
Depression is an unbearable suppression
' of brain activity that can strike anyone.
Straightening out all the misconceptions, the correct answer is b It's a concept we should all understand and remember, and here's
why. Depression stnkes millions of young adults, but only 1 out of 5 ever seeks treatment for it. Too many ust draq themselves along
or eventually seek relief through suicide. Why not treatment Partly lack of awareness. Partly
the unwarranted negative stigma This is what needs fixing. This is where we need you to UN T RE AT E D
