An ECU alumnus collapsed on the basketball
court at the student recreation center
Tuesday night. Paramedics and recreation
staff tried to resuscitate him before his trans-
port to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where
he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Kevin Banks graduated from ECU with a
degree in criminal justice in 1994. He was
currently enrolled in the master's program

ORIENTATIONGENERAL COLLEGE ISSUES
Because of the increase in tuition for all stu-
dents, out-of-state students may be feeling the
bum of higher costs this year. Compared to the
$874 that in-state residents are paying, non-res-
idents will be paying $8,028 this spring semes-
ter.
"1 don't really mind paying the amount stu-
dent Robert Earl said. "But I think it's a little
absurd that the amount is so high
Although the amount is high, it is not ECU
that sets the tuition rate. According to the
University Comptroller, Dan Bishop, the North
Carolina Legislature establishes the tuition rate
every year. "But the students still have to pay
and the state does not give a lot of tax support
Bishop said.
Holly Jones, a non-resident student, siad she
feels that the out-of-state fees aren't phenome-
nal. "It's cheaper than my in-state tuition and it
really doesn't bother me she said.
Other students feel that the high in state
fees of other states such as New York or
Colorado do not justify the out of state tuition
rates.
"Originally I was supposed to go to a private
college and I would be paying an amount of
upward $20,000 student Michael LeTellier
said. "I'm saving nearly eight grand but com-
pared to what in-state students are paying, the
rate is a rip off
The main reason for the difference in out-of-
state and in-state tuition is the payment of state
income tax by North Carolina residents. "In-
state residents and their parents pay income
taxes which heavily subsidize the cost of their
education said Richard Brown, vice chancellor
for Business Affairs. "The only difference for
out-of-state students is that they have to pay
the full cost of their tuition directly to the uni-
versity, and, over the long haul, in state and out-
of-state students will probably pay the same
amount because of the discrepancy due to
income taxes
for those who are on the borderline of in-
state and out of state, and have been classified
as out-of-state, the university has an appeals
process that the student can utilize.
"Right now roughly 50 percent of all stu-
dents that appeal are approved through the
appeals process said Residency Classification
Officer Jackie Harris. "We have an application
that the student completes and then it is pretty
much a judgment call by me. After I inform the
students of the decision, the non-resident stu-
dents can go through an appeals committee who
makes the final decision
Students can submit any additional informa-
tion
they feel is relevant to their case. If the stu-
dent request is rejected, the student has the
option of going to the general administration in
Chapel Hill or can even hire an attorney.
"After a while, you wonder if it's worth it to
pay those extra thousands of dollars just to go to
school in North Carolina, but the student loans
definitely make the amount more feasible said
non-resident Edward Gargurevich.

Banks played defensive end for the Pirates
during the 82-83 football season.
"He played before the Peach Bowl, when
the Pirates were on that winning streak. He
held the record for most tackles in a season
for a while. The knee surgery was probably
the only thing that kept him from going pro
said Joe Capella, Banks' roommate.
Banks was a member of many health clubs.
He attended many different facilities and
had begun going to the student recreation
center here because of his Alumni status and
his continuing school spirit.
" I can't understand how this could hap-
pen. He was one of the most health con-
scious people I know. He worked out a lot
and was really active. He even won a few rac-
quetbail 'ournaments. He never smoked or
drank said Capella.
Another of Banks' roommates, Pete
Rivera, said Banks won numerous racquetball
tournaments in the coed division in both
Greenville and Wilmington.
Rivera vvas Banks' roommate for over five
years. Rivera wants Banks to be remembered
as a generous and considerate man.
"He would give you the shirt off his back
Rivera said. "When my car broke down once,
he gave me his for a week. He prepaid his
rent and bills three months in advance just
because that is the kind of guy he was. If he
ordered food or went to the refrigerator he
always asked if he could get the rest of us any-
thing. He was the most thoughtful human
being I've ever known
Banks worked at Cubbie's downtown
when it first opened. He was also a
Greenville Police officer for a time. Banks
was employed at Pitt County Mental Health,
working as a rehabilitation technician for the
Genesis Program. It is a program specifically
designed to work with the special needs of
emotionally and behaviorally handicapped
children.
In addition to his work with children dur-
ing the day, he also volunteered in the Big
Brother program.
"He was a mentor for the kids. He took
them on trips to the zoo and theme parks like
Carowinds. He was planning a trip to
Washington DC for them said Capella.
With all of his community service, it is
believed that he will be missed.
"He was a good person that people really
seemed to like. I mean, every time that we
would go to Wal-
Mart, five or six
people had to stop
us and say 'Hi' to
him said Rich
Buell, another of
Banks' room-
mates.
In Wednesday's
edition of The
Daily Reflector ,
the results of
Banks' autopsy
showed he suf-
fered from sar-
coidosis, a rare form of heart disease.
Rivera said the roommates are trying to
plan a memorial service for Banks at Hendrix
theater this Friday at 1:00 p.m.

PH0T0 BY PATRICK iREUN
Racial discrimination has been an issue in
Greenville and in the state repeatedly over the
last few years, and now the epidemic may have
come to ECU.
Manv people aren't really aware of the ECU
housekeepers that float through class build-
ings and resident halls, and many less would
be aware of any racial or discriminative prob-
lems.
"The prejudicethe problems with the
money and the Marriot taking ovcc.it just

housekeeper for two years at Garrett hail.
In April 1996, ECU housekeepers joined a
rally against the privatization of university
housekeeping, and after the rally, filed griev-
ances regarding discrimination and racial slurs
against housekeepers.
"Of the 186 housekeepers employed by
ECU, there have been a number of grievances
filed. However, of those only 20 have been
filed by the Housekeepers Association' which
has grievances about racial slurs and discrimi-
nation said Vice Chancellor of Business
Affairs Richard Brown.
According to Brown, there are two different
forms of grievances that the university has
received. One set of issues from the eeneral
housekeepers staff regards issues such as qual-
iry of uniforms that are provided by the uni-
versity, quality of cleaning materials, working
conditions, and the intensity of supervision.

Non-student attested for
Belk Hall stabbing

SAFETY AND TRANFORT ISSUES
An 18-year-old man from Middlesex was
arrested early Friday morning after allegedly
stabbing two ECU students in the hallway of
Suite 201 in Belk Hall.
John Charles Dowling. of 8 Crocker's
Nub Rd was arrested shortly after 1:00 a.m.
at Pitt County Memorial Hospital after he was
treated for injuries to his hands. Dowling, who
was visiting friends at ECU, has been charged
with two counts of assault with a deadly
weapon inflicting serious injury, which is a
felony crime. He is being held in the Pitt
County Detention Center, and bond has been
set at $20,000.
The victims, Joseph John Cunningham, 21,
and Justin Kincaid Little, 18, were also treat-
ed at PCMH. They received severe cuts to
the midsection and the legs.
"Any injury to the stomach area, especially
injuries like this, can be potentially life threat-
ening said Assistant Director of the ECU
Police Department Tom Younce.
Little told police that he had returned to
his room and found Dowling and his girlfriend
there. Dowling then whispered in Little's ear,
and the situation turned violent. ECU Police
Sgt. Mike Jordan said, "Words were
exchanged, and it just went on from there
Dowling and Little began fighting, and it
spilled into the hallway of the suite.
Cunningham tried to separate the two, and
Dowling allegedly pulled out the brown pock-
etknife. After being cut, Little and
Cunningham went to Scott Residence Hall
and called for help. Greenville Fire and
Rescue Squad then responded to the scene
and carried the two to the hospital.
Dowling turned himself in to ECU Police
shortly after the incident occurred. He was
also taken to the hospital for injuries sustained
to his hands in the fight and was then arrest-
ed. ECU Police report there was no alcohol
involved in the incident. If convicted,
Dowling could be sentenced to prison for any-
where from 5-30 years.

TRUCK SPILLED ACETIC ACID
MONROE (AP) - A stretch of U.S. 74 east of Monroe was closed flfednesday
morning after a tanker truck spilled some acetic acid onto the road.
The tanker was discovered to be leaking the highly flammable acid after
a Monroe police officer pulled the truck over. The officer pulled the truck
about 4 a.m. after noticing a strong odor, WSOC television station in
Charlotte reported.
Pblice also evacuated a business and nearby home because of concerns
about the explosive nature of the chemical.
All lanes of the highway were nearly an hour, but were reopened by 5
a.m the television station reported.

In the past year several programs
have been created to help launch
ECU into the 21st century.
One such program is the Multi-
Media Instruction Initiative. This
program is being funded by a state
grant that totals $300,000. The
grant money was divided between
24 faculty members. Each member
received their own multimedia lap-
top computer. They also received
one video production projector to
share. The video production unit
will be used in classrooms to project
multi-media images onto a movie

"Our success with this project
will set the stage for the allocation
of more resources to assist instruc-

GREEN M&Ms HOLD MAGICAL POWERS
NEWARK, NJ. (AP) - Dim the lights, put on the soft music, pour the
champagne and break out the green M&Ms.
Candymaker M&M-Mars is hoping, in an ad debuting during the Super
Bowl pregamc show Sunday, to breathe new life into an old myth that green-
coated M&Ms hold the powers of an aphrodisiac.
The character is an animated, talking green M&M with mascaraed eye-
lashes, sensuous lips and white go-go boots. Similar ads have featured ani-
mated blue, red and yellow candies.
R�d industry analyst Marvin Roffman of Philadelphia said the campaign
was a good response to provocative advertising by Hershey, the nation's No.
1 confectioner.
Green M&Ms have been part of the candy mix since it was introduced
in 1949, but nobody knows how the aphrodisiac rumor started, D'Amato
said.
EARTHQUAKE IN CHINA
BEIJING (AP) - Soldiers and villagers worked in bitter cold today digging
out people and livestock buried in rubble from two earthquakes in western
Chi� that killed 12 people and injured 175.
More than 2.500 families camped in tents or slept on school floors after
the magnitude 6.4 and 6.3 quakes struck the Jiashi region, near the city of
Kashgar, one after the other Tuesday morning.
The western part of Xinjiang, where the quakes hit, is 2,000 miles west
of Beijing. Among cities shaken was Kashgar, an oasis on the Silk Road link-
ing China to the Mediterranean.

Philly protests cookie sales
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - If you're looking for Thin Mints and Samoas in the
Philadelphia suburb of Mount Laurel, keep looking.
Leaders of 27 Girl Scout troops in southern New Jersey have begun a
sales slowdown as a protest after their governing council denied them an
extra dime per box from the proceeds.
The slowdown appears unprecedented in 61 years of annual cookie sales
by the 2.5 million-member organization, which sold 174 million boxes of Do-
si-dos and other treats in the United Stares and its territories last year.
"I'm not aware of (anything like) that at all any place in the country
Marianne Haw, spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts of the United States of
America, said Tuesday.
The trouble in Mount Laurel, a middle-class city of 31,000, began in
November when community coordinator Jan Snyder said her troops weren't
satisfied with the 50 cerfts they received per $3 box sold - even though that
was up from 40 cents last year.
Snyder requested 60 cents per box from the South Jersey Pines council,
in exchange for a guaranteed sales average of 110 boxes per scout.
"Wfe feel (the council) has been taking advantage of them. They need to
give us more money and they need to operate on less Snyder said.
"It was really too late to act on it this year council spokeswoman Joanne
Goldy said, because sales were starting Jan. 10. The council governs 11,000
scouts in six southern New Jersey counties.
Besides, she said, the council administrators did not want to be
unfair to other troops. "How would the people in the next town feel if they
weren't offered the same thing
Twenty-seven Scout troops are selling only the minimum 12 boxes
required to participate in other Scout fund-raising. Eight troops in Mount
Laurel are ignoring the slowdown. The sale ends Feb. 17.
Currently, the bakery gets 81 cents per box, troops get 50 cents,
and the council spends the remaining $1.69 on maintaining three Scout
camps and other properties, recruiting and training troop leaders, fund-rais-
ing and administration.
The Burlington County Times, in a recent editorial titled "Cookie
rumbles criticized the adults for "coming dangerously close to ruining it for
the kids . ,

Scries of sexual assaults reported at ASU
ATTENTION: Changes south of Mendenhali and Joyner may affect you!
BGONE, N.C. (AP) - A first-year
student told officials at Appalachian
State she was sexually assaulted
while visiting a campus residence
hall last weekend, the school said.
The unidentified woman called
university police about 4:30 a.m.
Sunday, a news release said. No
criminal charges had been filed as of
Tuesday evening, the school's news
bureau said.
The incident is the third alleged
sexual assault near the school in the
last four months but the first to hap-
pen on-campus.
On Oct. 13, an 18-year-old stu-
dent reported that three men raped
her during a fraternity party at a
house east of Boone rented by three
students. On Oct. 19, another stu-
dent told Boone police that she was
raped by an acquaintance from out of
state at her off-campus apartment.
School officials had taken steps to
improve safety on the campus,
installing new street lights and
emergency phones and putting cam-
pus police in charge of a formerly
student-run campus escort service.
Chancellor Francis Borkowski
announced two more initiatives
Tuesday designed to "improve the
campus climate for student interac-
tion the news release said.
Borkowski has asked the Office
of Student Development to con-
duct a series of "teach-ins" - semi-
nars on building interpersonal rela-
tionships with peers - and is form-
ing a task force to study a variety of
student life issues and report to
him by May 1.

Dr. Herbert Hudgins, a professor

simple assault charges along with
others.
"A number of others were arrest-
ed for solicitation of crimes against
nature, which involves any homosex-
ual activity Nichols said.
Undercover police patrolled the
park through the month of
December in order to stop this
activity. The Greenville Fblice plan
on continuing to monitor the situa-
tion for further activities or com-
plaints.
"One of the major reasons for the
operation had to do with the prox-
imity of schools in the area. Wi had
received a number of complaints
from parents and school officials
from surrounding schools that the
students were in plain sight of these
activities and were being exposed to
them" Nichols said.
The Greenville Fblice will be
cracking down on the activity on fur-
ther occasions.
"We will continue to patrol the
park and arrest those people who
approach our officers. Wi can't allow
this type of behavior to impede the
people who want to use the park for

Most of the 24 faculty members

classrooms already. IV Scott Below
uses the projecrion d1-ing some of
his finance classes. He also uses the
software program Astound. His stu-
dents take the information from the

computer displays. This helps show
Below what they have learned.
According to an article in The ECU

color pictures and creative ways of
calculating math problems.
Other growing technology pro-
grams include distance learning and
a Continuing Studies Program.
The Distance Learning Program
enables students to take classes that
could lead up to a masters degree.
They do this in their home using
their computer. This is one of only a
few programs like this in the coun-
try. The program is on the World
Wide Wc "d is connected through
the ECU mainlijme.
The Continuing Studies Program
gives work! g parents the option of
getting a degree from ECU. They
take courses that lead up to degrees
in Industrial Technology or a BVTE
degree in education. The cost of
these courses is comparable to the
normal tuition. However, they do
not charge the student fees since
they are unable to take advantage of
the facilities.
According to Continuing Studies
Director Diana Henshaw, students
taking advantage of this program are
verv enthusiastic.
.Another technological advance-
ment at ECU is the Kiosk Program.
This program has been in the works
for about a year now. The program
places touch-screen computer ter-
minals around campus. The termi-
nals, which are located in
Mendenhall, Austin, and soon to be
in the Wright Place and the Galley
give information out to students,
faculty, staff and visitors.
Accoding to Computing and
Information System's director Blake
Price, the goal of this pilot project is
to enable students to look at course
availability, grades and information.
They are now waiting for the
University to adopt the one card sys-
tem. In order to keep this informa-

receive a pin number and will have
to insert their card. They hope to

that on a first offense Brown said.
According to Brown, the issues
filed by the "Association" have been
looked into. The rate hike is not a
school issue but a state one.
Promotions are always based upon
job performance.
"Sometimes job performance is
not up to standard or attendance on
the job is lacking; this adds to the
lag in promotions Brown said.
"The grievance is also out of context
because we have 11 out of 14 super-
visors who are .African American
Chancellor Eakin sent out a
memo on Jan. 14 to all the house-
keeping staff and responded to the
allegations of discrimination by the
"Association A group of meetings
was also set for housekeepers to
express their opinions and problems
concerning work conditions.
The main problem which all of
this stems from is the housekeepers
fears of the school using a private
contractor for housekeeping duties.
This would put a large percentage of
the African American population in
Greenville out of work.
"There is no truth to the ques-
tion of privatization. The only pri-
vate contract we have for house-
keeping is that of Marriot Corp and
those five are management supervi-
sory positions that they fill Brown
said. "We don't want to have to con-
tract out for reliable housekeeping
On Jan. 20, members of the
Housekeepers Association,
Coalition Against Racism (CAR)
and other activist groups marched
ECU to protest their issues and
rights.
"I don't want any part of discrim-
ination; I don't believe in it Barrett
said. "No matter what color a person
is, I'll work with himher
According to a flyer circulated,
they are claiming the school is
"sweeping legitimate grievances
under the rug The Housekeepers
Association is calling for Chancellor
Eakin to meet with them to discuss
their grievances.
"We have always supported our
staff, we support and give respect on
the job and we are doing everything
in our power to fix the problems
Brown said.

This is not just another story about the parking nightmare at ECU. This is a story about
the towing and the parking nightmare at ECU.
Imagine this: It was the first day of the spring semester. After two years at another
schoo you finally transferred to ECU and attended your first class, Chemistry 1060 at
8 a.m. in the Flanagan building. At 9 a.m you waited in line for 30 minutes outside your
advisor's door to get a signature in order to add another course to your schedule.
Unfortunately, the computer terminal in your advisor's office could not pull up your
schedule, so she sent you to the terminal in the main office of the chemistry department.
After waiting 30 more minutes for the students in front of you to change their minds
endless times, it was 10 a.m. and your turn. At 10:08 a.m the course was added to your
schedule. At 10:13 a.m you crossed Fifth St. and headed down Biltmore St. where you
left your car. Facing a dead end, with the Alpha Omicron R sorority house staring coldly
before you, a sickening feeling began to rise from the pit of your stomach. Turning to
stare back down Fifth St. it was obvious that your car was nowhere to be found. The sign
on the side of the road read two hour parking, and at 10:15 a.m you had exceeded the
allowed time. There is nothing like having your car towed to bring your day to a screech-
ing halt, After several phone calls to friends willing to pick you up, a trip to the
Greenville Police Station to pay a $15 fine, (which by the way also included a 45 minute
wait for the tow man to complete the paperwork on a tow sheet), you were granted the
privilege of paying $55 more to get your car back from the service station. Frustrated and
broke, your first day at ECU sucked.
What is the moral of this story? Are we supposed to feel sorry for people who can't adhere
to rules? If we give people an inch will they take a mile? Certainly we are not suggesting
that parking regulations should not be enforced. Yet, on the other hand, even the uni-
versity recognizes that during the first week of each semester there are a lot of new peo-
ple on campus. In fact, parking and traffic services is contracted with both University
Amoco and University Exxon and while University Exxon could not easily come up with
a number, University Amoco told TEC that on Jan. 13 they only towed one car from cam-
pus. What about the Greenville Police Department? The majority of students park off
campus in the maze of side streets branching off of Fifth St. A warning: this maze of
streets is Greenville Police territory, and if you are illegally parked, there will be no
mercy, even on the first day of a new semester. These are our views of the towing blues.
What can we do to keep so many students from falling victim? While pleading to the
Greenville Police Department to have mercy on ECU's students for the first couple days
of school will surely fail on deaf ears, providing students with adequate parking seems to
be a no-brainer. Hopes for a parking deck are squelched when the outrageous cost is con-
sidered. Speaking of outrageous costs, just exactly how are all of ECU's students sup-
posed to get to that new student recreation center without parking imaginatively. We
suggest the university should bite the bullet and commit to either building a parking
deck or buying another lot. If those ideas aren't feasible, our next suggestion is to ban
Freshman from parking on campus period. We would not be the first public university in
the state where freshman couldn't bring cars on campus. ECU's upperclassmen could
definitely use that freshman lot and we think they would appreciate knowing that they
are valued enough to at least have a few feet to park their car while patroning the uni-
versity. If nothing else, adequate parking would have provided the poor first time stu-
dent in the scenario above a much better first day at our magnificent university.
J t pt6t Midi o( rt
Etiquette of tipping
OK now, let's admit that most of us
college students are a little baffled
with the whole idea of tipping. (
know, 1 know, there are a few of you
mathematical wizards out there who
can figure out what 15 percent of
your hill is before you even receive
your food. The question is, does
your server deserve 15 percent?
Better yet, does he or she deserve
more? And are we suppose to tip
that pizza delivery boy who promised
to be there in 30 minutes? What
about the cab driver who puts up
with our intoxicated jabbering the
entire ride? How about the hair
stylist who listens as we describe
how we want to took totally differ-
ent, but "please don't cut too much
off ?" Moat important, how much are
we suppose to tip our bartenders so
they will take care of us?
Instead of racking my brain with
these questions, 1 decided to take
matters into my own hands and find
out the true meaning behind the eti-
quette of tipping. Now, I can
enlighten you on this subject. It all
cornea down to one thing, the quali-
ty of the service.
tea, that's right! You don't have
to tip that bartender who made you
the perfect Long Island Iced Tea.
Who cares if that ca - driver got you
downtown safely and listened to you
and your friends have a belching con-
test! If you don't leave a tip, then
that gives you a couple extra dollars
to eat that delicious greasy breakfast
you've been craving since your first
beer.
WAKE UP my friendly tipping
friends! It's time to dig in that lint
filled pocket of yours, grab that extra
dollar and take care of your servers.
Why? These hard working servers
IF HERS If) IMF EDITOR
sweat ail night long just to please
you. Yes, they can sometimes be a
little unpleasant. However, I will
tell you one thing, if you take care of
your servers they will take care of
you.
Here's a prime example. You and
your buddies are ready for a beer
guzzling, liquor drinking, shot slam-
ming night. No one wants to be the
designated driver and you're not stu-
pid enough to drink and drive in
Greenville. So, you call on your
trusty cab. I bet if you tip old Fred,
the cab driver, a buck apiece then
Fred will have the luxury limousine
waiiing at the end of the night to
take you back home. He may even
help your drunk self out of the car.
On the other hand, don't tip him and
see what will happen. Your old
friends, "Pat" and "Charlie will be
so sore the next day, you will proba-
bly have to fork out that extra money
for a foot massage.
How about those bartenders who
are stuck behind that bar, inhaling ail
your cigarette smoke and listening to
you shir out your next drink order?
Most bartenders will agree that
when a customer rips them, he or
she will get faster service. Okay, let's
say that you go out to have a few
drinks. You order your drink and tip
that smiling bartender an extra dol-
lar. You tip him or her frequently to
make sure you will receive those
refreshing drinks as quickly as possi-
ble. Then, when it gets slammed
packed in the bar and there are hun-
dreds of vultures staring down that
bartender for their drinks, she will
look up, see your cheerful tipping
face, and serve you first. Better yet,
don't tip her. That way you won't
need Fred, you know the friendly cab
driver who helped you out of the cab,
because it will take you until last call
just to get the bartender's attention.
My next example is our wonderful
hairstylist. Guess what guys? If you
take care of your hair stylist, shell
take care of your most prized posses-
sion, your hair! Ladies, tip her a
couple dollars on your next appoint-
ment, I'm not promising that you'll
leave looking like one of the girls on
the Pantene commercials, but it's
worth a shot! Fellas, give your hair
stylist a couple bucks too. You never
know what they might do the next
time.
The last person who deserves a
tip is our infamous pizza delivery
person. You know, the one that you
call in the middle of a hurricane
because you are too scared to go out
and get it on your own. These peo-
ple fight all kinds of weather and
traffic to bring you your delicious
food. Yes, it might arrive in forty
minutes instead of thirty. Yes, it
might be a little cold. Tip them!
That way, the next time they might
even drop your pizza off before
everyone else's.
Folks, the truth is to dig into that
grungy pocket of yours and tip a few
dollars. It's called politeness. I'm
not saying to tip S3 every time you
buy a Bourbon and Coke. Nor am I
saying to tip your waitress $20 when
you only ordered potato skins. What
I am saying is to take care of your
server. They will remember your
face and your tip.
On a last note, to all of you hard-
working servers out there, when a
customer does tip you, make sure
you smile and that you DO take care
of them. Your tips will increase and
the world will be a happier place.
Reader supports concert review
lb the Editor,
Jay Myers' well put article, "Local
music scene rejuvenated could not
possibly come any closer to conveying
my exact thoughts on downtown
Greenville and its lack of culturepro-
gression. What a shame that a fairly
targe college city tike Greenville con-
tains a music scene (or lack of) compa-
rable to a small backwoods town. In
feet, compared to most all major N.C
college towns and cities (especially
Chapel HillCarboro), we are seriously
deprived of fresh talent and an innova-
tive scene.
For a year and a half I (as well as oth-
ers) have undergone Mr. Myers' frustra-
tion due to the lack of cultural diversity
in Greenville (with rare exceptions like
the Squirrel Nut Zippers). I have tried
all the meat-market, M-TV weaned
clubs and seen my fair share of Hootie-
roots rock, but in my opinion, it all (like
Jay so eloquently put it) "sucks Where
are the eclectic elements of a down-
town that this college town should pos-
sess? Not to sound cliche but are there
others out there that "feel my pain ?"
OK, lame choice of words there.)
The obvious crowd turnout and
excitement for the Zippers should
prompt some son of sensibility from
the dub owners. Look past unique acts
and the attendance that followed,
including the Archers of Loaf and King
Missile. Wake up downtown Greenville
(or maybe sober up)! Will we continue
to be subjected to a bland, Myrtle
Beachish downtown, void of any intelli-
gent night life? This is our city, too, let's
not settle for less when there is more
out there. Please attend the rare and
entertaining shows we do receive;
demand better clubs and line-ups; and
if no compliance, let's demand that the
old dubs pack up and leave (maybe go
to Farmville or something). It is time for
Greenville's downtown "culture" to
move forward and attempt to adopt the
"cutting edge" like the major North
Carolina dry that it claims to be.

One of the great things about our Student Union is
the fact that they try to provide quality entertain-
ment for our student community They don't always
succeed, but they sure do try.
One of the lasting traditions over at Mendenhall
has been the ongoing TraveKAdventure Film and
Theme Dinner Series that is offered every semester.
Each film covers a different locale and each is intro-
duced by a speaker who has a familiarity with the
subject of the film. The theme dinner allows partic-
ipants to experience some of the cuisine that is spe-
cific to each culture.
Last semester, the series took students and fac-
ulty to such strange, majestic and faraway places as
South Africa, Japan, Hawaii, and Louisiana. This
spring, more exotic destinations are in store.
The series opened this past Tuesday when film-
maker John Holod took an audience to
CzechlSlovakia: Land of Beauty and Change, covering
such landmarks as Prague, the country's 1000-year-
old capital; Plzen, home of the world famous Risen
beer; and Bratislava, the Slovakian capital, located
on the Danube River. The gourmet buffet that was
served included such tasty treats as beet salad,
Baltic pot roast, roasted chicken with apples and
turnips, haluski (sauteed noodles and cabbage, and
vodka cream souffle glace.
The series will continue on Thurs Jan. 30 when
filmmaker Don Cooper shows us the beautiful city
of Vancouver, the Rockie mountains and the vast
prairies found in the Canadian West. The menu for
the meal will include Western Way salad, herb haked
hoki (seasoned Pacific Northwest whitefish), chick-
en breast with spring vegetables, herb grilled corn
and maple sugar cake.
On Mon Feb. 24, pleasure boating along the
waterways of England, Scotland and Wales becomes
the focus when filmmaker Fran Reidelberger pre-
sents Great Britain's Gnat Canals. This time around

Over the past few years, "Jazz at

enthusiasts. It has also showcased the
jazz talents of ECU music students.
Students of all experience levels per-

Jazz at Night Carroll Dashiell,
director of jazz studies, explained,
"gives students the opportunity to per-

"It makes for a fun evening and

"Students are really enjoying it, and I

The performances also have allowed
students to help each other out,
Dashiell added.
"Your strongest critics are your

19 was an otherwise disappointing
year for rap music. All of the releases
from the once powerful Death Row
label were either flops in sales or
they were blatant copies of past per-
formances. Both Dr. Dre and Snoop
released follow-ups to their hit
records that didn't quite follow up.
The variety that once distinguished
rap music as an expanding genre was
somehow missing. Even the once-
inventive innovators like Tribe
Called Quest and Busta Rhymes
released albums that weren't quite
up to par. When the year's most
memorable hip-hop event was a
record filled with bad covers and
stolen beats (The Score by the
Fugees), then it has been a bad year.
Except for Tricky that is. In 1995
virtuoso DJMC Tricky released his
highly acclaimed debut album
Maxtnquoye, a recording that opened
up new doors for urban music. Filled
with ambient sonic backgrounds and
the smooth rapping and singing of
his partner Martina, the album
forged new ground in the evolution
of nip-hop. Mamquaye was the cor-
nerstone of the new wave of rap
music, called trip-hop, a genre that
transcends race and nationality
In the last cold days of 1996,
Tricky released the follow-up to
Maxtnquoye, a darker, more jagged,
and decidedly more "hip-hop"
record, Pre-Millenmum Tension. Where
Maxtnqnaye focused on tapestries of
sound and moods, Pre-Millennium
Tension brings Tricky back to his roots.
There are more beats on this record,
and more rap songs (not, mind you,
run-of-the-mill rap songs).
Tricky's sense of sound and his
more quirky beats lend themselves
to a very different, more musical
style of rapping. Not only that, but
following in the footsteps of Public
Enemy, Tribe Called Quest, Arrested
Development and PM Dawn, Tricky
chooses to stay away from the "party
music" aspect of hip-hop and instead
focuses more on spiritual, relational,
and political issues.
The album opens with "Vent a
desperate song about the feeling of
constriction in a relationship, set to a
beat built of static and a fast-paced
bass line with a psychedelic guitar
riff in the background. And unlike
the last album, Tricky opts to use his
own voice rather than Martina's. She
is still there, but her voice is mixed in
the background to support Tricky's

Although this film did come to
Greenville's Plaza cinema (mostly
because of its award nominations), it
played for less than a week and arrived
over a year after its initial release.
Because of its limited availability to the
viewing public here, I feel that most of
you have still not seen it. I recommend
that you do.
; Nominated for five Academy
'Awards last year (including Best
Picture, Best Actor and Best Director),
II Posiino (or Tke Postman) is an elegant
story about the relationship between a
fcmous poet and his mailman and is not
to be missed.
Set in 1952, it concerns the arrival of
Pablo Neruda (played by Philiipe
Noiret), the Nobel Prize-winning
Chilean Poet, in a small Italian island
fillage after being exiled by his govern-
ment for his communist politics. While
there, Neruda greatly influences the
life of his postman, Mario Ruoppolo
(wonderfully portrayed by the late
Massimo Troisi).
Since most of the vil-
lage is illiterate and they
have almost no contact
with the outside world, it
is only Neruda who

thing was wrong with my CD player
when the first song of Guitar Wolf's
super excellent new album, Missile Me,
emptied out of my speakers.
Sounding like it was recorded in the
backseat of a junkyard Cadillac, Missile
Me is Bad to tke Future starring three
hellhound Japanese guys in leather
jackets and sunglasses who travel in
time from 1997 to 1957 to sell their
souls to the rockabilly devils of Hasil
Adkins, Link Wray and Billy Riley and
His Little Green Men. In fact, Guitar
Wolf is wha' Billy Riley was singing
about wher he cut "Frying Saucer
Rock and Ml
An undeniable influence on Guitar
Wolf are the Ramones, if for no other
reason than their leather jackets, the
song "Rung ru Ramone Culmination
Tactic" and Guitar Wolf's fixation
with counting off before almost every
song. This is actually a good thing,
because often "1,2,3,4" are the only
words in the song you can under-
stand. I had a hard time deciding at
first if they were singing in English or
Japanese. But, if you are searching for
a cliche" (and I know you are), just
think of it this wav: Guitar Wnlf
speaks the international language of
rock and they are highly fluent, mon-
sieur.
Guitar Wolf are all about rock.
Hell, a quarter of the album's 12
tracks use some form of "rock" in
their titles: "Hurricane Rock
"Midnight Violence Rock and Roll
"Racing Rock" and "Jet Rock and
Roll" (not to mention "Jet Blues").
Guitar Wolf are also about noise.

noise. The more modem influences
of noise masters Pussy Galore, Jon
Spencer Blues Explosion and the
majority of the bands on Crypt
Records are highly evident. On Missile
Me, Guitar Wolf sends you a personal
invite to "get a whiff of their pant
legs, baby" (see Jon Spencer).
With all the black leather and
aforementioned influences, Guitar
Wolf avoids sounding contrived or
unoriginal. They maintain the spirit
and teenage horniness of their rocka-
billy heroes and the danger and pissi-
ness of their brothers and sisters in
noise. This is exemplified best on thc
mostly instrumental track "Link Wray

Hollywood honors its best
that surrounds it. In Postino, the
reflective moments shared between
characters ring with as much sincerity
(if not more) than the actual words
they speak to each other. Massimo
Troisi's understated performance as
Mario becomes the cornerstone of the
movie, and in order to truly grasp the
immensity of what is happening to him,
the audience must be able to follow
every nuance of expression that Troisi
conveys through his body and face.
This would be no simple feat for any
performer, and Troisi definitely earns
his Best Actor nomination here.
Although the movie has its share of
poignant moments, the truly sad part is
that Troisi (who was not only the lead,
but also the co-screenwriter and co-
director) postponed heart surgery so
that he could complete II Postino. A few
days after filming was completed he
suffered a heart attack and died.
Please do yourself a favor and rent
this enchanting, bittersweet film. I
; you it will be worth it.

Well, it's that time of year again in
Hollywood. The time has come for
thc brightest stars to don their best
wardrobe and share the spotlight at
one awards ceremony after anothet
Yes, the time has once again come for
Hollywood to pat itself on the back
and pay tribute to thc best 1996 had
to offer.
Awards ceremonies, especially
within the entertainment industry
have always been a topic of debate.
Who are these elite gods that deter-
mine which film, actor, actress, direc-
tor, etc. excelled above all the rest?
Exactly who has the power to say that
Forrest Gump deserves thc best pic-
ture Oscar more than Pulp Fiction
Ultimately, such questions don't
matter. Everyone is entitled to their
opinions, and that is life.
However, within the last 10 years
a noticeable trend has been dominat-
ing the major awards ceremonies,
particularly within the film industry
The big winners (Rain Man, Driving
Miss Daisy, Dances With Wolves, Silence
of the Lambs, Unforghen, Forrest Gump,
Braveheart) have all been mainstream
films that were also blockbusters at
the American box office. Even
Sckadltr's List (which i fully believe
deserved all of its Oscar glory) was a
box office hit.
My point to all of this is that
money seems to have been playing a
big part in which films are considered
to be deserving of awards. Money has
always affected what kinds of films
are pushed by the movie industry
Many film critics have recently taken
a stance against the blockbuster
mentality. In a recent Rolling Stone
article, film critic Peter Travers
stresses that 19 exhibited a bigger-
than-usual gap between films with
artistic integrity and films with box
office clout ' (e.g. films like
Independence Day grossed over $300
million in the U.S. alone, while high-
er quality films such as Fargo and
Lonestar were lost in the debris).
As I mentioned earlier, it's time
for giving out awards again. Last
Sunday the Golden Globe Awards
show was broadcast across the world,
and, to the surprise of many, most of
this year's nominees within the film
category were not mainstream flicks
nor were they huge blockbusters.
Instead, many of thc top winners
were smaller, independent produc-

(AP) - Migraine is a serious disease
that affects one in six .American
women - an estimated 18 million - at
a 3:1 ratio over men. Yet, a new
national study showed rhat half of
women sufferers are unaware of this
high incidence - a situation that often
prevents them from getting the help
they need leading to needless suffer-
ing and feelings of isolation.
Most women sufferers do not
understand how common migraine is
or realize they are among so many
women who suffer from this often
debilitating disease. As a result, many
times they feel alone and do not take
their condition seriously, thinking
that they should be able to just
"cope" with it. This prevents them
from seeking the treatment that is
available and that they deserve.
Migraine is characterized by
severe pain, usually on one side of the
head, and often accompanied by one
or more of the following symptoms:
nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to
light, sound and smell. Migraine
occurs in periodic attacks, which can
last from four to 72 hours.
The high prevalence of migraine
in women is primarily because of hor-
monal influences. The study shows
that the disease also has a greater
overall impact on the lives of women
sufferers, often isolating them from
enjoying many aspects of their lives:
Self-esteem, career growth and family
and social life were a few areas in
which women reported experiencing
more negative effects than men.
If you suffer from headaches and
suspect migraine, see a physician for
an appropriate diagnosis and treat-
ment program. While migraine cannot
be cured, it can be treated and man-
aged.

TRICKY
continued from page 7
gravely, cracking pipes. Tricky cannot
sing; his voice is disturbing, but he
knows this and uses it with this quality
in mind, to create the mood of tension
after which the album is named.
"Christiansands" is a love-song .
Spoken over a trancy beat extrapolated
from a sample of the downbeat of Slick
Rick's "La Di Da Di Tricky explores
the difficulties of love with more inno-
vations: his lyrics don't rhyme, which is
highly irregular in rap music. But Tricky
is in every sense an "urban poet his
command of rhythm enables him to
shift in and out of form. He waxes
philosophical in his musings: "You and
me, what does that mean? Always, what
does that mean? It means we'll manage,
I'll master your language, and in the
meantime, I'll create my own
Other gems on the album include
Tricky's inspired cover of Erik B. and
Rakim's "Lyrics of Fury" (rapped by
Martina), "Sex Drive a fast-paced
number featuring a trippy beat and a
harmonica, and "Bad Things a song
with no beat - the rhythm is created in
the tension between Tricky's haunted
whispers and an angst-filled guitar line.
The only drawback to this album is
the inclusion of "Ghetto Youth The
music has none of the innovations of
the other ten tracks, and the lyrics are
in some JamaicanCreole dialect, which
makes it difficult to fathom. But the
track is short, and it occurs during a the-
matic break in the album, so it isn't all
that annoying.
In the short month that the album
has been out, it has raised quite a stir in
the music community, garnering much
press attention from MTV and Rolling
Stone, as well as drawing such diverse
fans as Beck, Shirley Mansen (of
Garbage), Zack De La Rocha (of Rage
Against the Machine), U2 and Yoko
Ono.
As the leader in the new electronic
avant garde, Tricky is beating a new
path in the journey of hip-hop music,
bringing such innovators as DJ Shadow
and Aphex Twin with .him. Pre-
Mitiennium Tension is the lead in into the
21st century. Welcome to the next
level.

tions that wowed the critics but weren't
heavily publicized, indicating a daring
shift from previous years.
The films nominated for best drama
included Breaking the Waves, The English
Patient, The People vs. Larry Flynt, Secrets
& Lies and Shine. Out of this elite group,
lorry Fynt is the only big Hollywood
production filled with a high-profile star
like Woody Harrelson, but it is also one
of last year's most risque films (put out
by an otherwise conservative
Hollywood). The English Potent (which
won the award), admittedly, does have
top-notch actors like Ralph Fiennes and
Willem Dafoe, but it is still a film with
a limited release. The others are signif-
icantly smaller productions that most of
mainstream America has overlooked,
until now.
Other top winners include Brenda
Bletbyn (best dramatic actress for
Secrets & Lies), Jeffrey Rush (best dra-
matic actor for Shine) and Milos Fbrman
(best director for The People vs. Lorry
Ffynt).
To maker matters even more hope-
ful, three of the greatest talents within
independent filmmaking were also rec-
ognized this year with nominations -
Joel and Ethan Coen (best director and
screenplay for Forgo) and John Sayles
(best screenplay for Lonestor).
The Golden Globes are, of course,
not the big awards that all of Hollywood
is waiting for. The Oscar nominations,
the golden boy with the bald head that
every filmmaker desires, should be
announced sometime next month. But,
if tradition continues as it has in the
past, the Golden Globes should influ-
ence which films are chosen by the
Academy of Motion Pictures.
Hopefully, this year's Oscars will follow
in the Golden Globes' footsteps and the
smaller, more deserving films will get
their just rewards.
If not, no big deal. A Fern Good Men
and Prince of Tides were both nominated
for Oscars, and that fact doesn't
improve them in my eyes. Ultimately,
it all comes down to politics and, of
course, opinion.

DON MATTINGLY SAYS GOODBYE
NEW YORK (AP) - Don Mattinglv has lieen gone for a year, and Yesterday
he made it official, saving goodbve to baseball and the New York Yankees.
The neatest Yankees plaver never to reach the World Series, Mattingly
formally announced his retirement at 3 p.m. EST during a news conference
at Yankee Stadium. u
Mattinglv, 35, sat out last season when New York won the championship.
He began his career in 1982, the vear after the Yankees lost the World Series
to Los Angeles. That 14-year Series drought was the team's longest smce
Babe Ruth began wearing pinstripes.
"One of the sadnesses of winning it all last year was that Donnie wasnt
with us manager Joe Torre said Tuesday. "He spent his whole life hoping to
get into the World Scries and never got there
A six-time All-Star and a nine-time Gold Glove first baseman, Mattingly
hit 307 in his career with 222 home runs and 1,099 RBIs. He was the AL
MVP in 198S later became onlv the 10th player to be named captain of the
Yankees and earned the nickname "Donnie Baseball" as a fan favorite in New
Mattinglv became a free agent after the 1995 season, saying he did not
intend to play in 1996. He left open the possibility, however, that he would
return at another date. The Yankees, meanwhile, left his locker empty at the
stadium in his absence.
But it was clear that Mattingly would no longer be a force on the tieW.
From 1984-89, Mattingly averaged 27 homers and 114 RBIs and hit over .300
each season.
GREEN BAY CHEERLEADERS ON THE WAY TO SUPER
BOWL
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Chalk one up for the Green Bay Packers cheer-
leaders. i � i �.
News reports that the team's hometown cheerleadingcrew was being left
out of the Super Bowl prompted a big reaction Tuesday, and now the 13-
member squad is planning a trip to Sunday's big game after all.
"We'll be on the sidelines cheering during the game just like we do at
Green Bay - to be the cheerleaders that we have been for the past five years,
said Ann Rodrian, coach of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay cheer-
leading team.
She confirmed Tuesday night that plans had changed and arrangements
were being made for the trip.
She said she received telephone calls from near and far after the news
spread that her team wasn't invited to the Super Bowl - and she suspects
manv calls also went to National Football League officials.
Instead of inviting Rodrian's cheerleaders, a company producing the pre-
game gala for the NFL had hired high school dancers from the Green Bay
area to depict Packers cheerleaders on the field at the end of the show.
AMANDA ROSS
SPORTS EDITOR
The shots didn't fall. Turnovers
hurt. And James Madison's defense
stopped ECU's home winning
�feak at eight, with a 59-55 loss.
Heading into the game, ECU
was tied for first place atop the con-
ference with ODU with a 5-1
record. JMU was next in line with a
3-2 CAA record.
Both teams came out flat in the
first half and JMU built up a slight
4-5 lead. Morris Grooms had a mon-
ster dunk for ECU, one of three for
the game, that sent the fans into a
fury and left the Dukes wondering
where their defense had broken
down.
ECU held a 6-5 lead and that
would be only one of two times
ECU would have the edge in the
first half. The second came from a
Raphael Edwards jumper with
12:17 left that gave the Pirates an 8-
7 lead.
ECU would then go on a scoring
drought that lasted four minutes
until Edwards made both ends of a
one-an-one foul shot.
The Pirates would go on to score
14 more points to end the half in a
tie with JMU, 24-24.
Edwards, Grooms and Tim
Basham led the first half scoring
with six apiece. Grooms also led the
way in rebounds with three.
A total shooting percentage of 38
and 12 turnovers was the first half
story.
Head Coach Joe Dooley said it
was the Dukes who set the pace for
the game.
"JMU was aggressive and set the
tone from start to finish and we
never answered Dooley said.
Grooms said for the Pirates to
chalk up a win, they need to
improve first half numbers like
those.
"We need to concentrate on
opening the game strong because
the last couple of games have start-
ed out weak Grooms said.
Most players agreed that the
first half was a bust, but they still
had a whole new game ahead of
them in the second.
"First half was the worst half of
ball we've played so far this season
Alico Dunk said.
However, Tony Parham knew
the Pirates could rally back in the
second.
"At halftime we felt like we were
still really into the game because we
had so much time left to work
with Parham said.
The Pirates did battle it out in
the second. Edwards hit a jumper to
give ECU the quick edge only to
see it diminish. With 13:42 left and
a five point JMU lead, Dooley called
a time-out and settled down his
players. It worked, and ECU
regained the lead, 37-35 with a
Dunk bucket underneath.
ECU kept that lead until the
6:12 mark when JMU's Chatney
Howard put up a three pointer.
Grooms hit a shot underneath that
tied the game at 41-41, but that
would be the closest ECU would
come for the remainder of the
game.
But ECU gave it their all until
the very end. JMU was inbounding
the ball under ECU's basket and
the plan was for a quick foul by
ECU to get the ball back, but it was
JMU's Ryan Culicerto who tangled
with Parham. Culicerto was called
for the foul after a botched inbound
pass.
Parham hit his free throws and
ECU still had some life left with
28.3 left and they were only down
by two.
But it would prove to be made
free throws by JMU in the remain-
ing seconds that secured the Dukes
the victory.
Othello Meadows nailed a three

RODMAN SAYS HE'S SORRY
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Dennis Rodman is saying he's sorry for kicking a
Target Cer ameraman, both with his words and his checkbook.
the Chica Bulls star apologized to Target Center cameraman Lugene
Amos on Tuesday after agreeing to a $200,000 out-of-court settlement that
also assumed il tat Rodman would not face criminal prosecution.
"Both mcr an going to be going on with their lives said Minneapolis
attorney Andrew Luger, who represented Rodman. "They had a cordial con-
versation that I think allows both of them to move forward without any ill
will at all
Amos has "gone awav for two or three weeks, according to a man who
answered Amos' phone Tuesdav but did not identify himself. In a news
release from Luger's office, Amos said he was "grateful for the professional,
expeditious and courteous treatment I have received from Mr. Rodman
Amos' attorney, Gale Pearson, did not return repeated messages left at
her office. c a
Although Luger confirmed a settlement had been reached, he refused to
discuss financial terms. A source who asked not to be identified told The
Associated Press on Monday the settlement was for $200,000.
That brings the total cost of Rodman's kick to nearly $1.5 million. The
NBA suspended Rodman without pay for at least 11 games and fined him
$25,000. The suspension is the second-longest in NBA history and will cost
Rodman more than $1.1 million in pay.
The deal also included Amos' agreement not to pursue an assault charge
against Rodman.
QUARTERBACK CAN RESUME DRINKING
NEW ORLEANS (.AP) - Maybe it was the timing, just a few days before the
Super Bowl in a city known for revelry. After all, this is the place where the
most famous thoroughfare is named after a whiskey.
Whatever the case, the NFL sounded none too pleased when Brett
Favre's agent revealed the Green Bay Packers quarterback has been given the
go-ahead bv the league to resume drinking alcohol.
' The agent, James "Bus" Cook, stressed that the two-time MVP doesn t
plan to spend the days leading up to Sunday's game against the New
England Patriots partying away the nights on Bourbon Street.
"He's got one thing on his mind and that's to win the Super Bowl, Cook
said Wednesday from his office in Hattiesburg, Miss. "Brett's not expressed
to me that he wants to go out and drink. It's not a matter of drinking; it's a
matter of choice
Favre admitted being addicted to a pain-killing drug, and he spent 46
davs in a Kansas treatment facility last summer. But he protested when the
league also banned him from drinking alcohol for two years and subjected
him to random testing.
Cook said Favre told him last week that league officials agreed to change
the quarterback's status in its substance-abuse program and that he'll no
longer face random testing for alcohol use.
Favre was at the Superdome for media day before word of the change in
his aftercare status was revealed in Tuesday's Green Bay Press-Ciazette. The
team said later he wasn't available to talk about the matter.
NFL PAYS SWEENEY
SAN DIEGO (AP) - The NFL was ordered Tuesday to pay $1.8 million in
disability benefits to former San Diego Chargers guard Walt Sweeney, who
contended the league pushed drugs on him and helped turn him into an
addict. � . ,
Uwvers for the Bert Bell-Pete Rozelle NFL Retirement Plan indicated
thev would appeal the decision by U.S. District Court Judge Rudi RE
Brewster.
If his ruling stands, it could open the door to other suits against pro toot-
ball's $400 million pension and disability fund, legal experts said.
"This could affect even retired player who has a disability or may have
one Sweeney's lawyer, Michael Thorsnes, said after the ruling was
announced.
The NFL players' union has been paving Sweeney $1,827 a month since
1990. the year doctors determined his drug and alcohol use made him inca-
pable of holding a job. The sum is the minimum benefit allowed for a dis-
ability unrelated to football.
Sweenev, 55. claims his drug addiction was directly related to the game
because coaches and trainers for the San Diego Chargers and Washington
Redskins gave him amphetamines before games and depressants to bring
him down afterward.
The former .All-Pro guard played in the NFL from 1963 to 1976.

TRACY L.U'BACH
SENIOR WRITER
Four years ago, a young lady by the name of
Justine Allpress packed her bags and came
to ECU all the way from Needwood,
England. After being recruited through the
mail and over the phone to join the Lady
Pirates, she left the only home she had ever
known to come be a part of a team she had
never met and a country she had never
seen.
"The last three months that I spent at
home in England were the worst of my
lifeAllpress said. "I was scared to even
think about being so far away from home
As a member oPa high school team that
won four consecutive national champi-
onships, Allpress's inspiration to play bas-
ketball came from a rivalry between herself
and a close friend who was a basketball nat-
ural. Determined to match her friend's tal-
ent, Allpress began working hard and soon
fell in love with the sport.
"Mv memories of high school basketball
are of victory and traveling and having fun.
There wasn't a great deal of pressure put on
me back then Allpress said. "There was
never anyone there to keep track of how
many rebounds I got or how many shots I
made because sports are played so differ-
ently in England
According to Allpress, there isn't much
at all that is the same between the US and
England. Students begin high school at the
age of 11 and playing on more than five ath-
letic teams is not uncommon because most
of the teams practice only once a week.
Basketball is most commonly referred to as
"net ball a game in which there is no con-
tact and little intensity. .Also, no scholar-
ships are offered in England, which ended
up being one of the factors that helped
Allpress make her final decision about
whicl. school to attend.
On Dec. 30, Allpress made Pirate histo-
ry by scoring 42 points in the home game
against Hampton. Prior to her accomplish-
ment, the record for the most points scored
by any one female in a game was held by
Coach Rosie Thompson who, to this day,
still remains the leading scorer for the Lady
Pirates.
"That night was completely awesome
.Allpress said. "Everyone played great, and
we all left that night with an amazing feel-
ing
Allpress said that although she was
aware that she had scored a lot in the game,
she had no clue that she had broken the
record until she was out of the gym and on
her way to the locker room.
"I always had a personal goal ro score 30
points in a game before I graduated, but I
never imagined that I would break a record,
especially one rhat had stood strong for
almost 20 years Allpress said.
.Allpress feels the team has been playing
inconsistently this season, but she is confi-
dent that talent lies in the hands of each
and every one of its members.
"We haven't played to our potential this
year. We need to focus on getting back to
the way we were playing at the beginning of
the season she said.
Allpress says that she has met her
friends for life here at ECU. She has not
decided yet on where she will be living

Teams and officials travel to tourney
While most of ECU was on
semester break, three contingents
of ECU students travelled to New
Orleans, La. to participate in the
18th Annual National Invitational
Flag Football Championships.
The ECU regular season men's
Hag football champion, "Super
Ho's made the trip for the fifth
time in the last six years while the
women's team, "The Creoles" were
first time participants among the
approximately 170 teams from
across the country and Mexico.
Teams were divided into four
separate divisions for competition:
Men's collegiate. Women's colle-
giate. Co-Rec collegiate, and Men's
Open. In addition to the teams, six
ECU intramural sports officials
were invited to work the tourney.
The "Super Ho's easily navi-
gated pool play by defeating the
University of Texas-Arlington 19-7
and California Poly State University
20-0. Aftet receiving a bye in the
first round of the playoffs, they
faced the host University of New
Orleans "Criminoles who had
been to the finals and semi-finals in
the past two years.
Despite a strong showing, sever-
al key plays lead to a 33-26 UNO
victory and ECU's elimination.
Members of ECU's men's team
included Geouf Anderson, Daniel
Finn, Derrick Harris, Terrance
Barnhill, David Campbell, Rodney
Young, Chris Pressley and Robert
Campbell. The "Creoles" also
enjoyed a solid showing in the
women's division. .After falling to
Universidad Nacional Autonoma
De Mexico 20-0, they defeated the
University of Mississippi "Chi
Omega" 24-0 to qualify for the play-
offs.
In the first round of the playoffs,
thev ousted the University of
Florida 13-6 before the speedy and
flashy offensive play of Southern
University-Baton Rouge proved to
be too much in a 25-0 loss in the
round of 16.
Members of the "Creoles"
included Rahha Gil, Christine
Greco, Beth Lamm, Tracendia
Sauls, Liz Greno, Cheryl Jackson,
Tomekia Blackmon, Darlene
Boone, Latesha Sutton and Hope
Murray.
The participation of these teams
ended highly successful season
which included a championship and
runner-up finish for rhe "Super
Ho's" and a runner-up finish for the
"Creoles" in regional competitions.
Among ECU's 28 flag football
officials were six who received the
opportunity to work the tourney.
The national event brought togeth-
er 100 officials from across the
nation representing 48 institutions.
These individuals were selected
for outstanding performance from a
stateregional tournament or as an
at-large selection for their perfor-
mance on their campus. Top honors
among the ECU officials were
taken by Steven Roberson who was
recognized as an Ail-American, des-
ignating his selection as being
among the best 20 officials in the
tournev.
Roberson also was chosen to offi-
ciate the Men's collegiate champi-
onship game and received the
opportunity to work an exhibition
game on the floor of the Superdome
prior to the Sugar Bowl game fea-
turing Florida vs. Florida State.
Russell Duvall, an Ail-American
from 1995 and Allison Kemp also
worked on the final day of competi-
tion and received semi-final game
assignments.
Other officials working the event
included Zina Briley, Rusty
Weedman and Bobby Woodard.
Each of these officials had previous-
ly worked one or more stateregion-
al tournaments either in North
Carolina or Georgia. Roberson
became the eighth ECU official to
receive the distinction of All-
American.
This group includes Duvall,
George Hollen. and Brian
Weingartz, who are all still active
officials in the Intramural Sports
program. Congratulations to all who
participated in this year's event!

with 3.1 seconds left for a 55-57 JMU
lead. In a desperation attempt,
Meadows fouled Atkinson and he
sank his last two free throws for the
55-59 JMU victory. Atkinson went
six for six in the last 17 seconds of
the game to ensure the victory. �
"JMU made it hard for us to play
our usual ECU game Grooms said.
Dooley was pleased with the per-
formatK put forth by Grooms.
"Morris kept us in the game
Dooley said. "He played very well
with a lot of energy"
Only one Pirate, Grooms, was in
double figures with 12 points. Dink
Inters also led the way with nine,
while Edwards, Meadows and
Parham each contributed eight
points.
ECU shot a total of 39 percent for
the game and 23 percent from the
three point arc.
ECU now drops to 5-2 in the
CAA and will head to UNC-
Wilmington to face the Seahswks
who are currently in fourth place
with a 4-3 record.
"Expect Wilmington to be a good
match. They beat JMU and William
& Mary on the road. Ufe have a lot of
work to do before Wilmington and
not much time to do it

after graduation, which is only months
away.
"My friends here have become my
family. They are always there for me
and they support me when I am feeling
down AJIpress said. "On the other
hand, my mom and I have a very cicsc
relationship. I know that she's not here
in person, but she's always on the other
end of the phone when I need her
Allpress is looking forward to gradu-
ation, when her mom, brother, and high
school coach, Brian, will be joining her
here in Greenville to celebrate.
"If it hadn't been for Brian, I proba-
bly never would've picked up a basket-
ball Allpress said.
While Allpress had her heart set on
attending Sheffield University, a small
school about an hour away from her
home in England, her coach was busy
contacting schools including Maryland,
Miami, and of course, ECU.
Allpress considers herself to be a
very determined and competitive per-
son. Her grandfather, who she claims
was one of the most positive people she
ever knew, was her roie model for life.
"He was the kind of person anyone
would like to know or be she said.
Allpress also admires Steffi Graf. As
a "sports fanatic" that participated in
eight different sports in high school,
Allpress's second love is tennis. In her
opinion, Graf is the "ultimate athlete
Allpress has developed a good rela-
tionship with Coach Donovan. She
says that one tk-ing she admires about
her coach is that she has gotten to know
the girls on the team not only as ath-
letes, but also as people.
"Coach Donovan is very demanding,
extremely intense, and she expects the
very best out of her players. She has
gained a lot of respect for us because
she expects so much out of us
Allpress said. "If you give all that she
asks, she'll gjve back in return
When she's not playing basketball,
Allpress likes to relax, watch movies
and hang out with her friends.
Perhaps she said it best when she
said, "I am intense out on the basket-
ball court, but I like to have fun, too
