ORIENTATION AND GENERAL COLLEGE ISSUES
It is the season for students to submit their
financial aid forms for the summer of the 1997
and 1997-98 academic year. Students should
mail their completed forms as early as possible
to receive the maximum grant award for their
The deadline for submitting the
Application for federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
is Apr. 15,1997. The forms can be obtained at
the ECU Office of Student Financial Aid or
other sites in Greenville, such as Sheppard
Memorial Library. Students who have
received financial aid in the past should have
received their FAFSA renewal form in the
mail, although the financial aid office recom-
mends to file a regular FAFSA if the renewal is
Director of Student Financial Aid, Rose
Mary Stelma, said she feels it is to the extreme
disadvantage of a student to procrastinate in
sending the FAFSA.
"You would not believe the amount of
students that apply in July or August Stelma
said. "We have to do a whole summer's work
in a period of half an hour to an hour, and ua
then forced to tell them that they don't quali-
fy for any financial aid.
If a student applies early for financial aid,
it gives our office an opportunity to review
their case over the spring and summer, before
the bill is due, and ensures a more attractive
Stelma advises that those students who
plan to procrastinate should talk to another
student who went through the process in the
Ask a student who has been through this
and find out how awful it is to sit in the office
and wait to be told you don't qualify Stelma
Other essential tips the financial aid office
offers are that students should always write
their social security numbers at the top of each
page of alt materials submitted to ECU. This
ensures faster processing and makes the work
easier for the financial aid workers. Students
should use black or blue ink and print out
information in capital letters, round off dollar
amounts and respond speedily to requests for
additional information. Also, all students
should keep copies of documents such as IRS
forms, since the office asks approximately 30
percent of students to submit these articles.
Common errors students make when filling
out forms are reporting income tax withheld
rather than actual tax liability, using the wrong
Social Security numbers and failing to report
untaxed income and benefits, such as living
allowances for military personnel. Another
common error is failure to report parent or
stepparent information, since their income has
a direct effect upon the student.

Student Financial Aid at 328-6610.
Appointments are available on a walk-in basis.
Office hours are from IftOQ am to 5:00 p.m.

ARTS AND STUDIES ISSUES
Graduating seniors may be interested in an
annual fellowship opportunity as well as sever-
al summer intern positions provided by a large
The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation offers
fellowships and internships to currently
Foundation fellows work for a year as a
junior program officer, alongside three full
time Foundation employees. They assist in
evaluating grant proposals, go on on-site visits,
and are given the chance to work on projects
of particular interest to them.
Mamie Broadhurst is the current
Foundation fellow, and says that there are no
specific requirements for the fellows, other
than the citizenship requirement.
"The only requirement is that the person
be a North Carolinian, andor be a recent grad-
uate of a North Carolina college or university
The purpose of the citizenship require-
ment is that the Foundation wants its fellows
to have a personal interest in the welfare of
North Carolina and its people.
"The people who are fellows usually have
been involved in their communities and trying
to improve North Carolina. There is a focus
outside themselves, and trying to better the
area we live in, because that's what we're
about Broadhurst said.
The Foundation was established in 1936 in
memory of RJ. Reynold's youngest child, and
since then has given more than $230 million in
grants all over North Carolina. The
Foundation focuses on various areas of major
interest from time to time, with their current
concerns being pre-collegiate education,
minority issues, women's issues, community
economic development and the environment.
The Foundation has two grant cycles, from
February to May and August to November, and
during those rimes the primary responsibility
of the fellow is helping with the grant propos-
als. But at other times, the fellow has more
freedom to choose their projects. Preferably,
the fellow's interests should coincide with one
of the Foundation's current focus areas.
"During the off-months, the fellowship is
really intriguing, because it can be whatever
the fellow wants it to be Broadhurst said.
The summer internship, of which there are
two to three positions available, is similar to
the fellowship with the difference being that
the interns are usually currently enrolled stu-
dents, and there is some flexibility in when
the internship is carried out.
"They can do some of the same things like
the fellow as far as getting involved in projects
that interest them Broadhurst said.
Broadhurst said that her own experience as
a Foundation fellow has widened her perspec-
tive on current affairs in North Carolina, and
thinks it will help her in her prospective career
as a teacher after she finishes her fellowship.
"Doing this fellowship gives me an amazing
sense of an overall view of what's happening in
North Carolina, and how to improve the state.
I have a greater sense of the recourses avail-
able to North Carolinians Broadhurst said.
lite fellowship begins in August and is a
paid position with benefits. The deadline is
March 1 every year, but as that falls on a
Saturday this year, Broadhurst says the appli-
cations must be postmarked by March 3.
Anyone who wants more information on the
fellowship or internship should contact
Mamie Broadhurst at 1-800-443-8319, or at

Although breast cancer is associated mainly with older people, it is
important for students to learn about it and its diagnosis now. Although
increasing age is a primary risk factor; incidents can occur to college
"Although some women do not think it is important at this age to
do breast examinations, we do know that it exists at this age said
Donna Walsh, director of the office of Health Promotion and Well-
Being female is the greatest risk factor, but breast cancer b not
restricted to females. Males account for one percent of the diagnoses.
Its cause is unknown, but it is the most common form of cancer in
American women. As many as 2 million women will be diagnosed
with breast cancer during this decade and more than 500,000 people
will die from it in North America alone.
It is the leading cause of death for women ages 40-55 and the lead-
ing cause of death from cancer among African American women.
Breast cancer is increasing. It is estimated that one out of eight
women will develop this cancer in her lifetime. In 1960, the risk was
one in 14 of being diagnosed.
If a woman has never had children, or if she had her first child after
the age of 30, risk also increases.
If a woman's mother or sister had breast cancer prior to
menopause, the risk of the woman developing the cancer is six rimes
greater. The risk is 10 times greater if the mother or sister had can-
cer in both breasts.
A family history of cancer of the uterus, cervix or colon also
increases the risk of breast cancer slightly Obesity triples the risk of
These are not the only factors causing breast cancer. Most women
who develop breast cancer have no identifiable risk factors. More
than 70 percent of all women diagnosed with breast cancer do not
even have a family history of the disease.
Early detection is important. Breast self-examination accounts for
75 percent of discoveries of all breast growths. Breast cancer can
often be treated effectively with surgery that does not call for removal
of the breast.
"The best thing to do is to become aware of how to do a self-exam
now and get into the habit of checking your breasts Walsh said.
"The most powerful thing is to learn about this early If you know
now what your breasts arc like, then you will be more likely to know if
any change occurs later in life
Although most breast irregularities are discovered by self-examina-
tion, most women do not know how to correctly perform them and few
do them often enough.
Do not panic if a lump is detected. It is best to contact a doctor and
The Accepted Patterns for Breast Exam
Use the same pattern to feel every part of the breast tissue.
Choose the method easiest for you. The diagrams above show
the three patterns preferred by women and their doctors: the
circular clock or oval pattern, the vertical strip and the wedge.
1. In the shower or in front of a mirror, examine your breasts.
2. With your arms raised over your head, observe them individ-
ually from different angles. Look for any changes in the contour,

RALEIGH (AP) - Gov. Jim Hunt is propos-
ing $251 million in adjustments to this year's
budget to begin funding his four-year program
of expanding Smart Start and raising teacher
salaries to the national average.
"I'm going to ask for a four-year commit-
ment on these things Hunt said Tuesday at a
meeting of the Advisory Budget Committee,
where he presented an outline but few details
of his budget plans.
"I'm not asking for something that will last
forever, just four years Hunt said.
Legislators, who are elected every two
years, make budget adjustments one year at a
Hunt also indicated to Republicans on the
Advisory Budget Commission that he is willing
to consider merit pay for teachers in his plan to
raise the average salary.
"We haven't finished things, of course, in
terms of the budget Hunt told the panel of
legislative budget leaders. He said the propos-
als unveiled Tuesday were a "broad outline" of
his full two-year budget plan, which will not be
released for at least a week.
Hunt's proposals include using increased
child support enforcement payments and sav-
ings from his welfare reform program to pay for
Smart Start and child care; reducing the
growth of Medicaid from its current rate of 11
percent a year to 8 percent a year over the next
four years; and eliminating situations where a
supervisor in state government oversees only
one or two employees.
Marvin Dorman, Hunt's budget officer, said
reshuffling state agencies would lead to the
elimination of positions, but not necessarily

Rep. George Holmes, R-Yadkin, the co-

discussed as a way to save money.
"That's going to be tough Holmes said. "I

In addition to $251 million in budget
adjustments this year, Hunt proposes $150
million in unspecified reductions over the i
three years to pay for his plans. Legislators last
year cut $175 million from the budget.
Dorman said his four-year projections
showing how to pay for the governor's pro-
grams do not include a downturn in the econ-
omy. The economy is already in one of the
longest growth cycles since World War II.
If we have a recession, it will require
adjustments throughout Dorman said. But
he said there was no agreement among econo-
mists that a downturn is imminent.
Republicans have said they want the
biggest raises paid to the best teachers, rather
than giving across-the-board raises to get them
all to the national average.

DAN RATHER SAYS MUGGER FROM
NEW YORK (AP) - Dan Rather says the mugger who more than 10 years ago
yelled, "What's the frequency?" before knocking the CBS anchorman to the
ground and kicking him was a North Carolina man.
The mugger was William Tager of Charlotte, N.C Rather said Tuesday
after examining pictures of the man. Tager was sentenced last year to 25
years in prison for shooting an NBC technician to death outside the "Today"
show studios in 1994.
Rather was confronted at about 11 p.m. on Oct. 4,1986, on Park Avenue.
The attack had been a mystery to Rather until psychiatrist Park Dietz, who
examined Tager after the shooting, told Rather he was certain Tager was the
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Onslow County Sheriff's deputies arrested a
61-year-old grandfather Tuesday after his daughter said she caught him per-
forming oral sex on his 9-year-old granddaughter.
The man was arrested in his home, where officials believe the crimes
occurred over a two-month period.
His granddaughter stayed with him after school. Her 6-year-old brother
was playing outside the home when the crimes allegedly occurred. Detective
Sgt. Pam Sanders said.
BABIES THROWN OUT THE WINDOW
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Two toddlers were hurled out a third-floor apart-
ment window as police responded to a domestic dispute. The infants land-
ed on the hood of a car, but were expected to survive, police said Tuesday.
The children's father, the subject of several domestic violence com-
plaints, has been arrested for investigation of two counts of assault, spokes-
woman Corina Hopkins said.
The 2-year-old girl was in critical condition with head and internal
injuries; her 1-year-old brother was in serious condition with bruises and
minor internal injuries, said hospital spokesman Todd Kelly said.
Apartment manager Pat Hutson said another tenant saw it happen.
GM WORKERS REACHED A TENTATIVE PACT
MORAINE, Ohio (AP) - Workers at General Motors Corps truck assembly
plant here reached a tentative pact to end a three-day strike over disputes
that included overtime and sick days.
The International Union of Electronic Workers said Tuesday that GM
agreed to settle all grievances.
The plant makes the Oldsmobile Bravada, Chevrolet Blazer and GMC
Jimmy. The 4,300 workers were expected to return starting with the first
shift today, said Gerry Holmes, a spokesman at GM's North American head-
quarters in Warren, Mich.
BOMBAY, India (AP) - Fire spread through the top stories of a 25-story office
tower today, killing three people and trapping others for about an hour high
above the beaches of the Arabian Sea.
Firefighters' ladders reached to only the 14th floor, so rescuers had to
bring people down the stairs to that level. About 21 people were evacuated
through 14th-floor windows to safety.
The fire may have started in plywood and plastic being used for con-
struction by an American consultant company on the 21st floor, said Deputy
Chief Fire Officer M.G. Sarkod.
POOREST INVESTORS RECEIVE IMMEDIATE CASH
TIRANA, Albania (AP) - Albania's president said today only the poorest
investors will receive immediate cash payments from the frozen assets of two
failed get-rich-quick funds.
Prime Minister Aleksander Meksi said Tuesday investors would begin
receiving payments Feb. 5 from the pyramid schemes, which were declared
illegal and frozen after weeks of unrest sparked by their failure to pay out.
President Sali Berisha told a news conference today that most investors
would get account statements, rather than cash payments.

New concerns rise about
1950's monkey virus
BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - Scientists are dusting off a 40-year-oid medical
mystery: Does a monkey virus that contaminated a polio vaccine millions
of Americans took during the 1950s increase the risk of certain rare can-
Government data suggest such fears are unwarranted, because the
types of cancer involved do not appear to be increasing among people old
enough to have gotten the tainted vaccine. And the polio vaccine sold
today is tested to ensure it is free of this monkey virus, called SV40.
But scientists recently found genetic pieces of the SV40 lurking inside
tumors removed from cancer victims, and injecting the virus into labora-
tory animals gives them cancer.
That's far from proof that SV40 actually harmed a person. But interna-
tional scientists who spent two days furiously debating the issue here con-
tend this virus might predispose some people - perhaps those with dam-
aged immune systems - to certain cancers of the brain, bone and lung.
And some question whether continuing to use monkey tissue to make
vaccines might allow viruses that people don't yet know exit to sneak in.
"Make it in anything but animals said Barbara Loe Fisher of the
National Vaccine Information Center, which criticizes vaccine safetv.
"We have the technology to make vaccines in human cell lines that are
clean said Dr. Michele Carbone of Loyola University Medical Center,
one of the first to discover SV40 inside human tumors.
Carbone doesn't want Americans to fear vaccines; he recently had his
own child immunized against polio.
But government officials worry that even debating the issue will fright-
en some parents. "We do a grave disservice to the public if we were now
to question the safety of the current polio vaccines on the basis of SV40

Levine added, because they must

Mass vaccination with the

1955. But in 1960. doctors discov-
ered SY40 in monkeys and in the
vaccine. When they injected this
virus into hamsters, it caused can-
cer, so the Food and Drug
Administration ordered companies
to manufacture virus-free versions.
But by the time they reached
the market in 1963, as many as 98
million people may have been
exposed to SV40.
Whether that early contamina-
tion posed any harm was debated
during the 1960s and 1970s, but
then faded away until 1992 - when
Carbone found SV40's genetic fin-
gerprint inside human cancer.
Carbone tested preserved sam-
ples of rare child brain tumors
called ependymomas, bone tumors
and a particularly deadly lung can-
cer called mesothelioma that
mostly strikes people exposed to
He found pieces of SV40's
genetic material inside 60 percent
of the brain and lung cancers he
tested, and a third of the bone
cancers he tested.
Other scientists got mixed
results. British researchers, for
example, spotted SV40 signs in 44
percent of the mesotheliomas they
tested, and a Baylor University
researcher even culled the actual
virus from a tumor. Some of the
tumors were from people exposed
to the tainted vaccine, but not all -
and some researchers found SV40
in noncancerous tissue, suggesting
the virus either had spread or was
in humans before tainted vaccine.
But other scientists couldn't
find the virus in human tissue at
all. and questioned whether labo-
ratory contamination was fooling
Carbone and other researchers
now have preliminary evidence
that SV40 may do damage by tying
up proteins vital to keeping cells
from turning cancerous.
Also, SV40 appears related to
two human viruses that harmlessly
infect nearly all Americans, but
which cause rare cancers in people
with severely damaged immune
systems, such as AIDS patients.
That suggests SV40 could similar-
ly be a risk only to immune-sup-

America Online settles with customers
Customers say they
paid but could not
WASHINGTON (AP)-The nation's
largest online service, America
Online Inc has agreed to reimburse
customers for their inability to logon
in a settlement with 37 states, a
source familiar with the agreement
Terms and details of the settle-
ment were not immediately dis-
closed. The source, speaking on con-
dition of anonymity, said the size of
any credit would be determined by
how much time a customer recently
has been online.
America Online has been
swamped with complaints, accused
of signing up hundreds of thousands
of new users without the means to
accommodate the heavy usage.
The new customers over-
whelmed America Online's comput-
er network, taking advantage of a
new plan that gave them unlimited
online time for $-19.95 a month. At
the same time, AOL undertook a
massive advertising campaign to
push its service.
America Online stock shot up
$1.62 12 to $36.87 12 on the New
York Stock Exchange in response to
the settlement announcement.
Analysts said the settlement should
help stop an embarrassing barrage of
negative publicity at a time when
AOLs online service is threatened
by easier and easier access to the
AOL also said it would add a dis-
claimer to its ads, starting in
February, that says customers are
having trouble logging on. No ads
will be run without the disclaimer.
The company also agreed to
make it easier for people to cancel its
service, including more lines for cus-
tomers to fax in their cancellations.
Because of the large number of
states involved in the settlement, an
agreement would affect AOLs 8 mil-
lion customers nationwide.
Several states had threatened to
sue America Online unless it
promised refunds and stopped pro-
moting a plan it can't reliably deliver.
The attorneys general in the
states involved scheduled a press
conference for this afternoon to
announce the settlement. An
America Online spokeswoman had
no immediate comment.
The heavy use often results in
annoying busy signals for AOL sub-
scribers attempting to log on during
peak periods. The company has also
been plagued with a recent rash of
technical glitches, such as e-mail
"brownouts as it attempts to
upgrade its network to accommo-
date new users.
America Online, based in Dulles,
Va has said it is selectively giving
refunds to people who complain
about their difficulty getting online.
But until now, it had declined to give
America Online is spending $350
million between now and June to
upgrade its network, including buy-
ing new modems, building a new
data center to house computer
equipment and adding more cus-
tomer support representatives.

Execs consider buyout of furniture division slated to close
GREENSBORO (AP) - Singer Co.
wants to get out of the furniture busi-
ness, a move that will mean the clos-
ing of the company's 340-emproyec
manufacturing plant in Chocowinity.
But Singer Furniture executives
are looking at whether to buy the
division and spin it off into an inde-
pendent company - likely preserving
jobs at the Chocowinity plant and
other plants in Lenoir already slated
Singer Furniture officials are
expected to meet this week and dis-
cuss a passible management buyout,
the News & Record of Greensboro
The Chocowinity and Lenoir fur-
niture operations produce bedroom
and dining room furniture and
employ more than 1,000 workers.
Another 20 employees work at divi-
sion headquarters in High Point and
40 workers at administrative offices
in Roanoke, Va.
"If (a management buyout) is
continued from page 1
be "raised roTfie riinoriaTliverage
"by a variety of ways including
putting more money into the ABC
education plan that rewards high-
performing schools, paying teachers
for mentoring and other duties.
Raising teacher salaries to
the national average "doesn't mean
everybody ought to be at the
national average Hunt said. "If
they do exceptionally well, they
should be above the average. Some
will be below
Hunt said his full budget
will be available after the State of
the State address to the
Legislature. That speech usually is
given in the Legislature's first few
days, but has not yet been sched-
successful, then the plants would stay
open, and the employment would be
protected said Craig Shoemaker,
Singer Furniture's president and a
member of the buyout team. "It's a
little early to say what numbers it
would protect from a job standpoint
New York-based Singer
announced late last week it would
stop making furniture after reporting
a fourth-quarter loss of $20 million.
Singer - known for its sewing
machines - blamed S16.5 million of
that loss on the furniture division.
Singer announced in December
that it would close the Lenoir opera-
tion by late March, affecting about
720 workers. Already 100 positions
have been cut, said William Foster, a
Singer vice president.
Lenoir manufacturing operations
were to be consolidated with the
Chocowinity facility. Foster said no
closing date for the Chocowinity clos-
ing has been announced.
Shoemaker said Singer Cos
reception toward the buyout has been
neutral so far.
"We hope to have some discus-
sions with them in the next few days
and sec if we can get real serious
about it Shoemaker said.
As recently as 1994, the Singer
Furniture division was the nation's
20th largest furniture maker with
2,400 employees and more than $100
million in annual sales.
Singer Furniture has suffered
from a declining market share, as well
as considerable excess manufactur-
ing capacity that has resulted in high
operating costs, officials say.

We at 7EC are concerned about you, our fellow students at ECU. Life can be tough for
the average college student. Just living day-to-day is often difficult, stressful and
Who out there doesn't know the taste of Ramen noodles? Who hasn't had a check
bounce because of insufficient funds? Who hasn't paid some late fees to the library, the
video store, the electric company, the phone company, the credit card company, etc.? If
you haven't yet, you're either really lucky or really responsible. However, more likely than
not, most of you have had to pay fees that were either unexpected or unnecessary.
It's easy to fall into the trap of an inflated and uncontrollable budget when you're in
college. Almost as soon as students walk on campus for the first time, they are bombard-
ed by credit card companies willing to give anyone and everyone $2,000 dollars or more,
no questions asked. Combine that with the thousands offered by Financial Aid, and
before the first day of classes have even begun the average student can be several thou-
sand dollars (possibly tens of thousands) in debt.
Managing this load seems easy at first, but along come living expenses like food, cloth-
ing, power, phone, gas, and so on. Add to that non-essentials like music, videos, movies
and cable and the debt becomes insurmountable. And parents can't always help by tak-
ing this additional debt on, nor should they since we are all supposed to be adults.
Many students do not recognize the dangers of this kind of debt until it is too late. It's
easy to see why. When you're buying a new stereo system, computer, TY VCR or game
system with that newly acquired credit, you're not in the frame of mind to be thinking
about all of the other expenses that come with that initial purchase. You'll need CDs to
play on the stereo, software for the computer, cable for the TY videos for the VCR - you
can see where this is going. And all of these little things add up.
Of course, we're easy prey. That's what most corporations feel, anyway. Why do you
think they give our generation so much consumer attention? Because we buy, buy, buy.
And we're trendy, too. We dig 70s clothes, roots rock and fat-free foods. Consequently,
there are now more 70s clothes manufacturers, more roots rock bands and more fat-free
foods to be had. Of course, we have to pay a little more for these things, but we do want
them, we do need them, don't we? We can't seem to stop and that pleases the powers
that be to no end. They will happily keep us in debt until the end of time.
Where is all of this debt taking us? It seems that if this trend continues, we will turn
into a generation that cannot afford anything - no homes, no businesses, no property. We
will be so in debt that no options for the future will be available to us. This buying fren-
zy may be good for the economy now, but it can't be good for the economy to come.
If we as a generation get burned by outrageous consumerism now, will we continue
that consumerism later? Or will we be so angry and fed up with where we are financially,
that we will not be buyers any longer?
If so, we could be heading for a bleak future. If we stop buying in such huge quantities
and at such inflated prices, then the consumer market may fail. If the consumer market
fails, then the economy will fail as well. And we will be too late to stop it, then.
All of this can change, however.
Solutions are there, but they're not easy. First, we have to regulate our spending. We
have to learn to be more responsible. We have to say no to those who would prey on our
Perhaps we could censor companies from soliciting on campus. Maybe we could con-
vince those who charge us fees to be a little more lenient towards the beginning spender.
Financial instruction could be required for the student community.
But these suggestions are only possibilities, really it comes down to the individual. You
can only be responsible for yourself. We at TEC encourage you, if you have not already, to
give some serious thought to your financial state before it gets out of your control.

Seniors deserve seniority
Will, you're finally a senior at ECU.
You plan on graduating in May, huh?
You've sat through 82,000 lectures
from a professor you can hardly
understand, 150 hours standing in
line to register for those classes that
you must have, waited in a line that
stretched all the way down 10th
Street so you can get a parking stick-
er for $96Then you waited in anoth-
er line for hours on end to find a place
to park in that glorious parking lot.
What about all that time you've
enjoyed spending in the book store
searching for the books you need,
only to find out they're sold out? How
about the two million freshmen who
have given your favorite outfits those
wonderful beer stains? After four, five,
maybe even six long years of drudgery,
you've finally achieved this wonderful
senior status. But, what do you have
to show for it? Well, you do have your
Official Purple Pirate Pass that gets
you all your free goodies like a deck of
cards, a beach towel and even a class
You've also had the pleasure of
watching that beautiful recreational
center being built from the first day
they started to dig. And yes, you can
use the rec center that you helped
pay for, only for a small fee.
And you do get to pay a $25 appli-
cation fee to apply for graduation.
Remember, it's the same amount that
you paid when you applied to attend
college here. You finally received the
recognition you deserve for being a
Wrong. For the past four years,
LETTERS TO THE. EDITOR
you've been busting your tail to
become a senior. You have stood in all
of those lines. You've attended all
those boring classes that you thought
for sure you didn't need. You have put
in endless hours of studying. You've
given up numerous amounts of vaca-
tion proposals. Now, you want more.
You deserve more.
How about a parking lot designat-
ed to graduating seniors only? That
way, you're not fighting with the
underclassmen for a parking place.
You know that before you leave your
home, you are guaranteed a space.
Now, I'm not saying that you
should have your own personalized
parking space. However, a special
parking lot for graduating seniors only
would give you one less thing to worry
What about a registration day for
graduating seniors only? You graduat-
ing seniors would be able to get those
last few classes that you need without
having to worry about getting special
permission. It's only fair that you get
first dibs on classes before anyone
else. This would also give you a head
start at the bookstore since you know
what classes you'd be taking. After all,
everyone else will be here next
The one privilege that graduating
seniors deserve is the rec center. For
the past three years, tuition has
increased. The reason; our wonderful
new rec center. However, if you're
graduating in May, then you only have
about three more months to enjoy it
for free. After you graduate, you must
pay a membership fee to use that
building that you practically built.
Graduating students should be able
to enjoy the rec center for at least one
semester following graduation.
We can compare this whole sce-
nario to the business world. Let's say
that ECU is a large company in New
York City. The business people who
have been working here the longest
get special privileges. Instead of
parking on the fourth level of the
parking deck, they get to park right in
front of the door on the first level.
The "senior" partners also get to
choose what jobs they would like to
work on first. The senior employees
are the ones who arc committed to
the organization. They've stuck it out
through thick and thin. The company,
in turn, makes them feel special and
recognizes their accomplishments.
It's time for ECU seniors to be
recognized and to receive those spe-
cial privileges. Every student at ECU
who has what it takes, will be a senior
one day. And yes, on that fine day, all
of you underclassmen will be entitled
to whatever privileges that come with
that senior status. Wouldn't you like
to have something to look forward to
for all of your hard work?
I'm not saying to give the seniors a
huge parade. Nor am I saying to give
them free food, books, or anything
they want. What I am saying is that
when a student reaches senior status,
they have many things to stress over.
Why not make a student's last semes-
ter at ECU more enjoyable and mem-
orable? Give the seniors their seniority.

To the Editor,
I must say I was quite unim-
pressed with the bit of unprofession-
al journalism in Thursday's edition of
The East Carolinian. The article
entitled, "ECU officials shed light on
discrimination claim was shoddy
and unrcscarched to say the least. To
start with, the picture accompanying
the article was one of a black house-
keeper and a white housekeeper,
insinuating that there are as many
white housekeepers as black. The
truth is, there are very few white
housekeepers on staff at ECU. Next,
the article portrays Vice Chancellor
of Business Affairs, Richard Brown, to
be concerned with the welfare of the
workers, when in fact, the only issue
he addressed was the documented
racial slurs used.
Mr. Brown never responded to any
of the workers grievances about work
environment, salary or respect
(which was left out of the article
entirely). The only discontent even
dealt with was Brown's half-hearted
statement, problem of the racial
slur (insinuating only one occur-
rence) has been locked into and
appropriate action has been taken I
fail to see what discontent this obvi-
ous "slap on the wrist" will help to
settle. The article continues into
another obvious dodge of the real
issue. Brown says that the rate hike is
not a school issue, but if not, how is it
that UNC's housekeepers settled for
one million dollars in pay and work
Promotions are almost unheard of in
the realm of housekeeping. Perhaps
after 20 or 30 years of working in min-
imal conditions, a pay raise will be
given out. But even after that, a
housekeeper can make not more than
20 to 21 thousand dollars a year, not
nearly enough to support an entire
family. Chancellor Eakin, who has
finally allowed for meeting with the
housekeepers, seems to think that a
meeting is all that is required to "oil
the wheel" so to speak, but I, for one,
won't allow him neglectsic) human
rights of the housekeepers.
There is much more to this issue
than has been discussed by Hopkins
and Algood in this article. The house-
keeping staff have not been the sub-
jects of just one racial slur, but con-
stant racial discrimination. I find
myself disheartened and fully dis-
gusted with this paper's lack of
research on the issue. The issue of
housekeepers' rights aresic not to
be taken lightly. It's very easy for us
as privileged children of society to
blame the problem on someone else,
but if we continue to let discrimina-
tion of this sort continue, we will be
and are the guilty party. In one tiny
paragraph, you managed to reduce a
well planned and very emotional
march for human rights to no more
than an activist group protest. The
actions and complaints must be
heard, and as if it weren't enough
that Chancellor Eakin and the
administration ignore them, but the
local newspaper as weil is belittling
their cause. This is much more than a
march for pay raise, this is a proud
display of courage and honor in the
tradition of Martin Luther King, Jrs
dream. After all, King was shot while
marching for sanitation workers just
like ECU's housekeepers. I think it's
time this paper started thinking
about real issues instead of "the

some of my friends, but still, my memories are very
selective. I remember playing -1 did a tot of that. I

I watched all the shows with the child actors,
dreaming I could one day be like them. Child actors
are a dime a dozen, and while their innocence lasts,
America will continue to watch their cute antics.
Even after their innocence is gone, we'll get our
kicks watching their trials on TV As the child stars
grew older, so did I, and I tost some of my fascina-
tion with them. But recently I've discovered a
group of kids who have been performing for more
years than America has been independent of
They are the Vienna Choir Boys. Rw almost 500

ASSISTANT LIRESTYLES EDITOR
I've been educating myself on musi-
cals lately. Within the past year, I've
watched such classics as Somtk Pacific,
The SmmdofMwx. West Side Story and,
my personal favorite. Tie Musk Men.
Why don't they make movies like this
anymore? Such a question is a cliche,
but it is a legitimate question.
Watching such films (as a film critic
and a film buff) and knowing that
they are no longer being made leaves a
emptiness in my heart. Why is
Hollywood afraid of the musical these
The answer revolves around
money. Producers in Hollywood firmly
believe that the golden age of the
musical film is over, that no money
can be made from such films.
Strangely enough, two high-profile
musicals by two accomplished direc-
tors have been released within the last
few months. Woody Allen has taken a
stab at the musical with his film,
Everyone Says I Love You.
Unfortunately, Greenville theaters
don't show Woody Allen films, so don't
expect that gem to be playing at a the-
ater near you anytime soon.
Surprisingly, though, Alan Parker's
new musical, Evita, is in Greenville,
and it is a stunning epic that does jus-
tice to the entire genre of film musi-
Evita is powered by the music of
Andrew Lloyd Webber, the lyrics of
Tim Rice and the vocal performances
of Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
While all of this may form an unlikely
company, the resulting product proves
that the musical does not have to die.
It is a genre that can be just as invigo-
rating, exciting and hypnotic as any
other type of film.
Based on the actual historical fig-
ure of Eva Duarte de Peron, a stage
actress who grew into a national sym-
bol for the peasant people of
Argentina, Evita covers a great deal of
narrative ground. The film follows
Eva's life from a young girl with no
home or family, through her efforts to
climb the social ladder by means of

In a time when the music world is being deluged with different versions of
the same old thing, it's refreshing to see that someone somewhere is still doing
something different. In a time when alternative is running the scene, the "art"
of thrash has been tost by the wayside.
And, in fact, thrash is a form of art. When you stick with mainly one or two
chords or progressions and your singer sounds like Satan's father on a bad day,
you have to know what you're doing to pull off good songs. Take for example,
the band Pantera. Simple, grinding songs with vocals that make you fear for
your life, but they still have rhythm and originality.
Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Manday Huge. The only thing
keeping these guys from being rated "Run Away" is the fact that if you turn
their music up loud enough, it can still make your house shake. Seriously, this
trio from the Outer Banks of North Carolina has a couple of good things going
here and there, but they never combine them into a good song or two. In the
words of their own song, "How It Is "Roll it up all you get is one big ball of
shit And that's how it is I couldn't have said it better myself.
Their independent self-titled CD starts off with "Underground Rom the
opening scream, I knew this would be a long CD. But I actually thought they
had potential. "Underground" is a straight-ahead thrash song from beginning
to end. Though overall not a bad song, the last line helps prepare you for the
rest of the CD when it says "Don't be a wimp and hold your ears which is
exactly the reaction that the next song encourages.
"Spinach" marks the beginning of the end for Manday Huge. The lack of
musical skill begins to show, with rapid breaks and stow scales being the main
riff of the song. Basically, the band learned a scale, broke it down, and then sang
over it. Placing the vocals over the scale breaks sealed the coffin shut on this
"Never Happen" starts out with a cool little guitar effect and has a deep
bass sound that makes this fast, funky song a decent attempt at good music.
But in mixing the song, somebody must not have realized the importance of
the bass sound, because during the guitar solo the bass is subdued to a point
where it has no real pan to play. At feast the rest of song shows some effort.
"Piece" is another example of good and bad points in the same song. The
intro and chorus need work. The music is mediocre to begin with, and sporadic
drumming disrupts any flow that it might have had. During the verses, how-
ever, they get their act together and actually rock some. Then the chorus
comes and, surprise, surprise, it's the same thing as the intro.
Among the other weaknesses of the band is the songwriting, I hope the
guys don't have the attitude of the songs m real life. The songs arc junior high-
level attempts at "fighting the establishment They gripe about anything and
everything dealing with authority or rates, and a little of that goes a long way
By the end of the album, it's just the same old stuff over and over again and
this is the number one way to turn listeners off.
However, the guys in Manday Huge obviously don't know this. How can I
tell? There's a hidden song on the CD. And you have to wait two full minutes
after the last song before it starts. First of all, they'll be lucky if anyone even
makes it to the last track, and second, it'll be a miracle if someone finishes the
CD and actually lets it play for two more minutes before turning the player oft
You want to know the true irony of this situation? The hidden song is one
of best songs on the album, fast and funky, Manday keeps the song's time
down to a couple of minutes, which allows them to play only the good stuff
Instead of throwing in bad parts in the interest of a longer song, they keep this
one short and simple.
Rom the lyrics on the album, the band appears to be trying to play the rotes
of big, bad guys who take no junk from anybody. Instead, they come across as
unskilled guys who play junk for anybody. Is this dose enough? You can decide

With more than 300,000 new cases
each year, hepatitis i is considered to
be more than 100 times as contagious
as AIDS. Approximately 14 Americans
die each day from hepatitis B related
Hepatitis B is a virus that can live
in all body fluids. Also, it may live in
dried blood for up to seven days,
therefore making it more contagious
than AIDS. A major method of trans-
mission for hepatitis B is sexual inter-
course. Another method of transmis-
sion is using contaminated needles for
reasons such as intravenous drug use,
tattooing and ear and body piercing.
One other mode of transmission is
sharing personal items such as razors,
toothbrushes, and nail clippers.
Since anyone can contract hepati-
tis B, it is important to be able to rec-
ognize the symptoms. Before looking
at the symptoms, it is important to
note that about half of the people
infected with hepatitis B show no
symptoms. Approximately 49 percent
will have flu-like symptoms such as
tiredness, mild fever, loss of appetite,
aching muscles or joints, and nau-
seadiarrhea. Another symptom is
jaundice, a yellow appearance that
may develop on the eye or skin.
One percent of the people who
contract hepatitis B may develop liver
cancer or cirrhosis, which could prove
to be fatal. The Hepatitis B
Foundation in Pennsylvania claims
that 90 percent of those infected will
recover successfully through a natural
healing process. However, up to ten
percent will not recover successfully,
and it is next to impossible to predict
who will recover and who will not.
Since there is no cure for hepatitis
B, prevention is the key. Abstinence is
the best method for not contracting
hepatitis B through sexual contact.
However, if a. person insists on being
sexually active, correct use of a latex
condom is imperative. It is also impor-
tant to never use contaminated nee-
dles intended for medical or non-
medical purposes. Another technique
of prevention is to be certain not to
share personal items such as tooth-
brushes, razors or nail clippers.
Just as important, a low-fat, low
cholesterol, high fiber diet including
yellow vegetables, broccoli and cab-
bage is a great way to help your liver.
Also helpful is a professionally pre-
scribed exercise program.
One very important method used
for prevention is the hepatitis B infec-
tion vaccination. The hepatitis B vac-
cine is available at the ECU Student
Health Center at a reduced cost for all
Since hepatitis B and many other
infectious diseases are contracted
largely through social relations, it is
important to communicate assertively
to other people that you do not want
to take part in certain social actions
such as having sex or allowing some-
one to use your shaving razor. Being
able to communicate "No" to other
people without offending them is a
large concern for many people. It is
very difficult to communicate "No"
white at the same time being discreet.
A sense of humor is one method
used to lessen the tension in a diffi-
cult situation while at the same time
effectively communicating the "No"
message. Within this mind set, a diffi-
cult situation has been composed in
question and answer format with a
possibly humorous answer

one man at a time, to her political
awakening in fighting for the riits of
the lower classes of Argentina.
The narrative structure of this film
may throw many off, including fans of
the traditional musical, because the
entire story is told in song, including
most of the dialogue. Webber and
Rice make Evita more like Les
Miserable than The Musk Man. Going
into the film with such knowledge
allows one to better open up to the
film's style and mentality.
Also, a little historical knowledge
of Eva and Argentina wouldn't hurt.
The screenplay (written by ftrker
and Oliver Stone) effectively tells
Eva's story, but the more significant
elements of the film involve
Argentina's political and cultural his-
tory, and the facts are somewhat
blurred when told in song and dance.
But those criticisms are easily over-
looked once the film embraces you.
Rice and Webber work musical won-
ders together, creating many (for lack
of a better word) catchy songs that
should impress the Oscars this year.
While some songs seemed forced -
particularly when dialogue is spoken
in song - the music, which makes or
breaks any musical, ultimately lifts
Evita to the status of a modem epic.
Fitting neatly into their musical
roles are Madonna, Banderas and
Jonathan Pryce. Pryce is particularly
impressive in an understated perfor-
mance as the newly-elected
Argentinian leader Juan Peron, who
becomes Eva's lover and eventually
While the film does paint Eva as a
force of good and justice, it doesn't
simply show one side of the story.
Playing the political leader and Cuban
revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Gucvar,
Antonio Banderas serves as the Greek
chorus that narrates and comments on
much of the narrative. With Banderas
(who stands out with his rebellious,
raspy vocal presence) firmly
entrenched in the film, there is always
a question as to what exactly moti-
vates Evita - the people or money and
Serving as the centerpiece of the
film. Madonna excels way beyond any
limitations she displayed in such films
as Who's That Gnior Desperately Seeking
Susan. Madonna makes love to the
camera with her classic movie star
beauty, her voice translates Rice's
lyrics with a natural case, and she, the
actress, just seems to be having the
time of her life. When watching
Madonna in this role, one clearly sees
a performer giving it her all.
Alan Parker (Mississippi Burning,
Angel Heart) turns in a tour-de-force of
direction by weaving the entire film
together into a coherent whole. Along
with cinematographer Darius Khondji,
he fills the wide screen with beauti-
fully composed images not seen
enough in most of mainstream cine-
ma. Thanks to Parker and Khondji,
Evita actually demands to be seen on
the widescrccn. When this film hits
video, a letterboxed version must be
released to keep the integrity of the
Response to Evita has been over-
whelmingly positive. The film is doing
well at a very competitive box office,
and it won several major awards at this

The Vienna Choir Boys, actually
four separate choirs, tour with 24 boys
ages ten to 14. Each of the choirs has its
own concertmastcr. nurse and prefect.
When not on tour, the boys live togeth-
er in a "school" environment in
Augartcn Palace in Vienna. They
receive schooling in subjects such as
music theory and instrument lessons,
as well as hours of practice and
rehearsal. Those who wish to pursue a
career with the Vienna Choir Boys
attend a special preparatory school and.
at age nine, take an examination. If
they pass, they might be allowed to
audition for any spots in the choir that
I wonder how these spots do open
up. It would be terribly mean to kick a
kid to the curb on his 15th birthday.
(Sorry son, you're just too old.) It turns
out that once the boys' voices start to
crack, they are retired to studio apart-
ments on the grounds of Augartcn
Palace and are allowed to continue their
education. The whole deal sounds
pretty cushy to me.
The concert consists of three parts,
secular music, non-secular, and a mini-
operetta. In the past, the Vienna Choir
Boys have been known to do a delight-
ful rendition of a Richard Rossmaycr
comedic opera concerning a prince who
visits a local man expecting to meet his
beautiful daughters, and instead meets
his cross-dressing sons. If you ask me,
they couldn't have picked a more
appropriate selection. Whatever the
opera, the boys make use of their beau-
tiful voices, superb costumes and nat-
ural playfulness to have fun and enter-
tain the audience.
The Vienna Choir Boys will be arriv-
ing at ECU for a Sunday afternoon per-
formance at 2 p.m. as an added attrac-
tion for the S. Rudolph Alexander

Jackson planned to meet with commissioner David Stem today in New York
to plead the case for Rodman, who was suspended at least 11 games for kicking

timent and the sentiments of a growing number of people that Dennis has
already been punished enough for the very act in question

COWBOYS OWNER OWES IRS
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service claims Dallas
Cowbovs owner Jerry Jones and his wife owe $8.3 million in back taxes and
penalties from 1992, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported today.
The newspaper said Jones and his wife. Gene, are contesting the matter in
U.S. Tax Court, with the couple's tax lawyers saying that such disputes with the
IRS are not uncommon and won't affect the team.
An IRS spokesman would not comment on the case, but an IRS lawyer told
the newspaper about 95 percent of tax disputes are settled before they reach a
tax court judge for a ruling.
The IRS told the Joneses in October that they were liable for $1Z.8 million
in total taxes in 1992, but said they paid less than $5.9 million. The government
agency said the Joneses understated their 1992 income by $23.4 million, listing
it as $19 million when it should have been $42.4 million.
The disputed income involved the sale of 49 percent of the stock in lexas
Stadium Corp. to Pro Seat Limited Partnership and dividends from Texas
Stadium Corp. and its subsidiaries.

The Pirates controlled the lead throughout
the entire duration of the game, and were lead
by Justine Allpress and Jen Cox, who turned in
20 and 18 points each respectively.
Two and a half minutes into the game,
Allpress sunk a three-point field goal to put
ECU ahead by 12. The others were both put
in during the first half of play by Misty Home,
who played with all of her heart for a total of
35 minutes in the ballgame.
The Chanticleers, lead by Jackie Kershaw
and Lori Gray, were never quite able to gain
control at any time during the first half of the
game. Allpress put in a 10-foot jump shot at
the buzzer to end the first half 15 points
ahead with a score of 41-26.
Coastal Carolina came back strong in the
second half to turn the game around. The
Chanticleers managed to put all 17 of their
attempted free throws through the hoop in
the second half.
Aside from one completed free throw from
Tracey Kelley, the Pirates did not put any

Rugby tradition continues for a new season
JRALEIGH (AP) - News organizations sued Raleigh Mayor Tom Fetzer and four
"City council members Tuesday over an alleged secret meeting to talk about a
'proposed hockev arena.
� The News & Observer in Raleigh, Capitol Broadcasting Corp which owns
IWRAL-TV; ABC. which owns WTVD-TV; NBC, which owns WNCN-TV;
�WLFL-TV, the Fox affiliate; the North Carolina Press Association and the North
�Carolina Association of Broadcasters are the plaintiffs in the suit.
I The lawsuit contends Fetzer and city officials violated the state's Open
jMeetings Law by discussing the arena while watching a college basketball game
Jon Jan. 19 at a private home.
"We have every reason to believe that the mayor and four other council mem-
bers broke the law, and we want to make sure that under oath, they can prove
they didn't break the law said Fred Crisp, publisher of The News & Observer.
A day earlier, Geoff Elting, who served three terms on the city council, filed
suit against Fetzer and City Council members Paul Coble, John Odom, Marc
Scruggs Jr. and Kieran Shanahan.
STADIUM EXPANSION COULD BE HALTED
SAN DIEGO (AP) - At least two cities have contacted the NFL about hosting
the San Diego Chargers next season should a controversial expansion of Jack
Murphy Stadium be halted by a referendum, team president Dean Span.os said
Spanos wouldn't elaborate, saying he hadn't talked directly to representatives
from other cities. However, a source told The Associated Press that a city in the
Los Angeles area and Houston would be interested in hosting the Chargers
should the expansion project be stopped.
Los Angeles lost the Raiders and Rams two seasons ago, and the Oilers plan
to move from Houston to Nashville in 1998.
San Diego also is in danger of losing the 1998 Super Bowl, and competition
for the game is heating up among Pasadena, Calif Detroit; Minneapolis, and
Tempe, Ariz the source said.
NFL officials did not return telephone calls Tuesday seeking comment.
The 10,000-seat expansion, which includes additional skyboxes and club
seating, plus a new practice site for the Chargers, has been wrapped in contro-
versy since the City Council approved the deal in May 1995.
What do you get when you cross the
game of soccer with the game of foot-
ball? This may sound like the begin-
ning of a cheesy joke, but this is actu-
ally true. The answer is rugby.
Rugby is fairly new in the U.S. as
compared to the rest of the world.
Rugby started in Europe around the
same time as soccer. The dimensions
of the field are similar to that of a soc-
cer and football field, i he rugby
field's length is 100-meters long and
60-meters wide. This does not
include two 10 meter end zones. The
field also includes goalposts, just like
When it comes to rules, that is
where things get interesting. The
only equipment in the game of rugby
is cleats, long socks, jerseys and a ball.
No pads are allowed.
Each team has 15 players on the
field at a time. There are no time-outs
or substitutions, unless a player is
hurt. Rugby has two 40-minute halves
with a five minute half time. The
biggest rule that a person may notice
is that a player can't pass the ball for-
ward. When passing to a teammate, it
must be a lateral. Contrary to belief,
fighting is not allowed.
The object of the game is simple.
The offensive team tries to advance
the ball toward the defensive goal
line. When the offensive man crosses
the goal line, this is called a tri. In
order for the score to count, the ball
must be touched down on the ground.
This is equivalent to a touchdown in
football. A tri is worth five points, and
the point after tri is worth two points.
ECU has had its own rugby team

Question: When was the last time the ECU

After a long wait, ECU's new Student
Recreation Center opened to a flood
of students eager for a place to work
out. Students agree that the Rec
Center has surpassed their expecta-
tions. The wide variety of activities
available allows students the freedom
to exercise however they wish.
"It's like Club Med freshman
Josh Briggs said. "It makes exercising
a lot more fun
The rec center is drawing a varietv
of people. Some work out religiously,
while others have let their exercise
slack off and are seeking to make
amends. The others just play a pick-
up game of basketball or racquetball
now and then.
A large part of the student body
has found themselves going whenever
they have some spare time. The ele-
vated track is always full of joggers
and the pool has more than its fair
share of swimmers doing lap after lap.
The weights and nautilus equipment
are heavily frequented.
The Center Court is also an addi-
tion that is drawing crowds. It offers
low fat drinks to thirsty patrons after
their workout and can get as busy as
the other features rhe rec center has
"It gets real busy around 6 p.m.
and 10:30 p.m said Center Court
Employee Travis Peterson.
The only objections people have
are minor. Some students have found
the size of the rec center overwhelm-
"It would be nice if the weight
room was divided into sections
freshman Sala Ray said.
Another student Jason Burkett
was disappointed by the policies
regarding racquetball court reserva-
"You can only reserve them one
dav in advance Burkett said.
Burkett suggested a more open pro-
cedure which allowed students to
make plans two or three days ahead of
time. There also have been problems
on the track with walkers getting in
the way of runners.
Nobody knows whether the mad
rush to the rec center is just a fad or a
genuine move by ECU'S students
toward a more physically fit lifestyle.
But tor now, it seems, a stop at the rce
center has become a regular habit tor
most of ECU'S population.

Just seconds before Vlelvin was

was dribbling the ball toward Pirate
territory when Kelley suddenly
called a time-out. Allpress lost con-

began to slow down, and fell to the
floor with what is believed to be a
sprained ankle With a little rest,
she believes that she will be set and
ready to go for Sunday's matchup

"Last year I had an opportunity to live
on campus and be a winner. But instead
I chose to live off campuswhat a
mistake. I got stuck with utility, phone
and cable bills. The security deposit I
had to pay for the apartment really cut
me short on money. I had to eat my
own cooking and then wash all the
messy dishes. I even had to clean my
own bathroomYuck! I don't have time
to meet new friends because I have to
spend so much time cleaning my
apartment, not to mention shopping for
groceries. I have an 8:00 class, and
searching for a commuter parking space
is a big headache. If I lived on campus, I
could just walk to class. My roommate
has left Greenville and I'm stuck with
the rent. Now, it also looks like I will
have to find someone to sublet my
apartment because I won't be in
Greenville during the summer. Man, did
I goof by not choosing to live on campus.
I am so embarrassed.
I will definitely sign up to live on campus
next year! I hope to see you at
Sweetheart's in Todd Dining Hall the
week of February 17-21. Don't make
the mistake of living off campus like I
You don't want to end up being embarrassed like poor
Rob here? Do you? He decided not to live on campus and look
what he had to put up with.
