Special measures taken to ensure construction site safety
HOUSINGCONSUMATORY SERVICES ISSUES
With so many campus construction projects around campus, concerns have been raised about the
safety of the sites for students, faculty, staff and workers.
According to Director of Facilities Planning, Design and Construction Mr. Bruce L. Five, Jr
facilities services has taken extensive precautions to ensure the safety of students and faculty.
With help from the individual contractors, facility services has erected protective barriers and
have routed traffic around hazards. They have also tried to manage damages that could be
caused from fires, weather, chemicals, dust, noise, shock and debris.
"To accomplish this, while also operating the University, calls for the added precaution of
involving layers and layers of people for the designers, contractors, and the University on a con-
stantly vigilant basis Flye said.
The national organization that governs over the safety of construction sites is the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). They regulate such things as requir-
ing workers to use hard-hats while inside or around the project. However, according to
Construction Management Director Dr. Douglas Kruger, OSHA only covers the workers involved
in the project. They do, however, ask the employers to keep people out of any project areas.
This leaves the responsibility of individual safety to the individual contractors. So, do students
"I think so. As long as they have fences, I feel protected Lily Worku an occupational ther-
apy major said. "The noise is the only real problem
Students have also complained about the smoke and dust that has been surrounding the sites,
especially near Joyner Library. Freshman Brett Olson said he feels pretty safe. He did agree that
it does get a little noisy. He also was somewhat concerned with the smoke last semester that
clouded the walkway near Joyner.
Aside from being aggravating, the noise vibrations have not caused any damage. According to
Flye, there has only been one incident on campus and that was about 30 years ago during a pile-
Flye notes that he is very concerned with the safety of construction sites, especially the ones
where the most people pass near by. He also gave a list of future construction projects we can
look forward to, such as: adding elevators to Austin and Rawl, and renovating the Fletcher Music
Recital Hall. However, the greatest project is the new Science and Industrial Technology build-
ing which is currently estimated to cost $50 million.
Renovations being made to Dowdy-F-icklen Stadium account for one of the three major constructions projects going on around ECU campus.

The Department of Construction
Management at ECU has received National
Recognition this month by placing fourth in
the National Association of Home Builders
(NAHB) Student Chapters Annual
Construction Management Competition for
four year programs. The event took place on
Jan. 23 and Jan. 24 at the NAHB's National
Convention in Houston. ECU's fourth place
finish was behind Purdue University, Arizona
State and Brigham Young.
ECU's students have competed only twice
in the NAHB competition. Last year's teams
won Rookie of the Year and fifth overall out of
a field of 17 schools.
Team members were: Heather Banks,

Police Corps Scholarships Awarded
On Jan. 27, the deputy secretary of the North Carolina Department of
Crime Control and Public Safety awarded four ECU students Police
Corps scholarships valued at up to $30,000 each for four years of study.
The students are Vidal Barfield, Christopher Edge, Ted Sauls and
Sandra Vaughn. These students received four of the 20 Police Corps
scholarships to be awarded throughout the state this year.
North Carolina was one of six states chosen by the U.S. Department of
Justice as a pilot site for this national program. To date. Seven North
Carolina students have been awarded scholarships.

Ladies Elite Service
MINORITY STUDENT AFFAIRS
Though February is Black History month and
the efforts and achievements of African-
Americans are in the spotlight for the next
three weeks, many minority students feel the
need for more positive exposure throughout
One such student is Taiisha Nicole Coins, a
sophomore and member of the ECU track
team, told TEC that she felt like opportunities
for minority students to get involved in posi-
tive activities were very limited.
"I looked around and saw, basically, that
outside of Thespians for Diversity and Allied
Blacks for Leadership and Equality (A.B.L.E.),
there was really nothing for us Coins said.
Coins transferred from Appalachian State
University, where she became a part of a ser-
vice organization for minority women called
Ladies Elite, which she thinks can be an asset
to ECU and Pitt County. Founded in 1982 on
the campus of ASU, the organization cites as
its purpose promoting unity and sisterhood
among all minority women and serving the
African American community through volun-
"Our volunteer services are not limited to
just African-Americans, but they are our prima-
ry concern Coins said, adding that the addi-
tion of Ladies Elite to ECU's recognized orga-
nizations could benefit minority women in
"Not only does it (the organization) pro-
mote much needed solidarity, but the experi-
ence gained through volunteering will make a
difference in the future. People are under the
impression that they can go their whole college
careers just going to class and that alone will be
"The truth is that employers look at more
than just grade point averages, and being a part
of a productive service organization is a great
thing to have on your resume Coins said.
While Coins stressed that Ladies Elite is
not a social sorority, the original idea of bring-
ing Ladies Elite to ECU was met with some
tension from other organizations on campus
geared toward minority women.
"My reason for introducing Ladies Elite is
not to offer competition to any other organiza-
tion Goins said. "I'm not here for a populari-
ty contest. I'm here to offer a service. I'm stay-
ing; they're staying
Goins said she saw no reason why students
who were already a part of another organiza-
tion, Greek or Non-Greek, could not be a pan
or at least show support to the new organiza-
Pamela Gilchrist, president of Delta Sigma
Theta Sorority, Inc agreed and added that she
also feels the introduction of Ladies Elite is a
good way to promote unity.
"We all strive for excellence and sister-
hood Gilchrist said. "Even though we aren't a
pan of the same group socially, we basically
stand for the same things and our goals are sim-
ilar. For that reason, I think we should support
Gilchrist added that Goins should be com-
mended for her efforts because it takes a lot of
hard work to bring an organization together
especially when everyone is not supportive.
"Personally, I don't feel any Greek organiza-
tion should feel threatened by the addition of
a new organization for minorities Gilchrist
added. "We should all be working toward the
same goal anyway
Today is the last day for interested students
to complete an application, as the intake
process will be starting soon.
"Basically what we're looking for are minor-
ity women of all shapes, sizes and shades who
have time, positive assets and energy to dedi-
cate to an organization dedicated to serving
the community Goins said.

ARTS AND STUDIES ISSUES
This past Saturday ECU's current North
Carolina Teaching Fellows (NCTF) held a
workshop at Mendenhall for those high school
senior who are currently finalists competing
for next year's Teaching Fellows scholarships.
This past Saturday's workshop was a volun-
tary undertaking, which is encouraged by the
Teaching Fellows organization, and which
must be held on one of two Saturdays desig-
nated by the organization. It was arranged by
the Teaching Fellows at ECU and included
campus tours sessions which concentrated on
particular areas of interest, an information ses-
sion which detailed specifics about the schol-
arship and a session on interview techniques.
According to Dr. Ronny VanSant, director of
the Teaching Fellows Program at ECU, this
workshop was part of an ongoing effort to pub-
licize the Teaching Fellows Program and raise
awareness about the need for high quality
teachers in North Carolina classrooms.
"The NCTF program is a $20,000 scholar-
ship, $5,000 each year for four years, with an
intensive enrichment program VanSant said.
"So it is very important to note that it is not
just a scholarship about money It is a program
that is designed to enrich their undergraduate
years and create an educator of excellence
This program began in 1987 in an effort to
prevent a predicted shortage of teachers by the
turn of the century. Students who receive this
scholarship are expected to spend four years
teaching in North Carolina after graduation to
repay their scholarship.
"At East Carolina, the program is an active
one VanSant said. "One of the academic
things we do is to provide seminars once a
month for each class

N.C. Zoo keepers try experimental birth control on
ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) - No birth control method, except abstinence,
works all the time.
A new drug being tested on giraffes at the North Carolina Zoo, how-
ever, apparently works none of the time. At least not yet.
Two mother giraffes stood protectively over their calves, 5-foot minia-
tures of their long-limbed, thick-lashed moms.
The carves - a male bom Nov. 11 and a female born Dec. 1 - are among
the zoo's newest arrivals. They had their first day outside with the zebras
and ostriches that share the 3 12-acre Rrest Edge exhibit on Jan. 4.
The calves' rather as well as a second, younger male, remained in pens
behind the grassy enclosure. If allowed back in, Baes explained, they
might try to mate with the females and the carves could get hurt if they
got in the way. And, besides, the last thing the zoo needs is more giraffes.
High school basketball coach faces drug trafficking
HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - A high school basketball coach who resigned
last week for personal reasons was arrested Tuesday and charged with
cocaine trafficking, police said.
Robert Lee demons Jr 40, the former coach of the T. Wmgate
Andrews High School boys' varsity basketball team, is linked to last
week's seizure of two kilograms of cocaine at a residence, police said.
Clemons faces charges of trafficking in cocaine, conspiracy to traffic in
cocaine, maintaining a dwelling for the purposes of selling controlled sub-
stances and possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, said Capt.
Dan Hodgson, commander of the department's special investigation divi-
The charges against Clemons and two High Point men came after a
four-month undercover investigation by the High Point Police
Department, the Guilford County Sheriffs Department and the State
Bureau of Investigation.
Online world reacts
INTERNET (AP)-The big Wbb sites were primed for an onslaught. The
president was giving the State of the Union address just as a verdict in
the O.J. Simpson trial was expected. Would millions turn to the Internet
for their news?
Not exactly. One of the biggest draws of the evening was talk show
host Rosie OTJonnell, who attracted 16,000 participants to a chat room
on America Online. Simpson's chat room had about 6,000, and just 500
people logged on to talk about the State of the Union.
Many did log on to check out things online. CNN recorded 30,000 hits
a minute just as the verdict was announced. But it was short-lived.
Of the two breaking stories, it was clear what mattered most online:
CNN's home page feature story was the Simpson verdict; the State of the
Union address only warranted a headline slightly bigger than news of
Elizabeth Taylor's benign brain tumor.
Over at rival MSNBC, the Simpson headline got top billing and was
larger than the president's.
Judge allows local TV to show movie about
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A judge cleared the way for a movie about
two former military cadets accused in a love-triangle slaying to be shown
on local television despite arguments that it will jeopardize a fair trial.
Attorneys for former Naval Academy midshipman Diane Zamora, 19,
had argued that Dallas-Fort Worth's NBC affiliate, KXAS, should not be
allowed to show "Love's Deadly Triangle: The Texas Cadet Murders
District Judge Joe Drago on Tuesday denied Miss Zamora's request for

pull the program. He also urged residents not to watch it.
KXAS said the movie will air as scheduled on Monday with a dis-
claimer saying it is not based on a court case because two trials are pend-

Iran quakes kill at least 72 people, injure more than
BOJNURD, Iran (AP) - A magnitude-5.7 earthquake and dozes of after-
shocks rocked northeastern Iran today, a day after two powerful quakes in
the same area flattened several villages, killing at least 72 people.
The death toll, given by state-run Tehran radio, has been climbing
since two earthquakes about 40 minutes apart shook the city of Bojnurd
and villages around it Tuesday At least 200 people were injured.
No injuries or damage was reported yet from today's quake.
Relief workers and mountain climbers were sent to the stricken vil-
lages, but heavy snows and freezing temperatures prevented them from
reaching all of them, Tehran radio said. Some roads were buried under
knee-high snow or blocked by landslides.
Eight villages were demolished by Tuesday's quakes, and 35 others
suffered damage, the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted the Red
Crescent Society as saying. More than 2,800 houses were severely dam-
aged, said the Red Crescent, the Muslim version of the Red Cross.
ORIENTATIONGENERAL COLLEGE ISSUES
The Student Tutorial Program of the department
of athletics has proven to be a rewarding educa-
tional experience for both tutors and athletes.
"Wc have had a lot of success with the
Academic Development Program here at ECU.
The tutors have played a big role in our success
and our athletes have really committed to getting
a good education. Our football team alone is
graduating 85 percent within five years and there
are only 15 other Division 1 schools that can say
that said Amy Barnes, athletic development
The tutoring program provides free tutoring
for student-athletes upon their request. The
tutors are students with a minimum 2.5 GPA and
are selected on the basis of faculty recommenda-
Jeff Mobley, a junior who has been tutoring for
two semesters, feels that it is beneficial to the
learning experience to have a student be the
"Having a student tutor helps the athlete
because it is someone who is on their own level.
It shows them that me as a fellow student could
do it so they can too. A lot of them just need
more confidence in their academic abilities
"It is just more casual for the tutor and
the athlete. It's like having a friend help you out
instead of being lectured at Jennifer Farris, a
former tutor, said.
Besides tutoring, the tutoring staff is respon-
sible for instilling needed study habits, efficient
note-taking skills, and test taking strategies in
"Many people have misconceptions about
what the athletes do all day Barnes said. "They
are generally busy with practice and classes from
6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. They don't have the free
time to prepare for class like everyone else.
Really what the tutors do is help them with man-
"I never realized how busy the athletes were
until I started tutoring them said Jennifer
Emswiler, a math and biology tutor. "It's really
great to help them and see them working hard
The tutoring occurs either in an individual or
group study hall format. Many of the tutors feel
that the individual format has more advantages.
Roshani Shah, who has been a tutor for two years,
says that when the athlete are in a study hall
there are too many distractions for them and that
they do not do as much work.
Anthony Nobles, a freshman football
player, agrees with Shah's comment.
"I prepared more for my tutor so I would know
what she was talking about and it did help my
grades. Study hall though is a whole different
thing. I guess if you need it, it helps Nobles
The program's goal is for every student-ath-
lete to approach teaming with the same commit-
ment and energy they give to athletic cor .peti-
tion. To ensure the tutors are doing a good job,
all tutors are evaluated at the end of the ac-nes-
ter. Barnes said the athletes are also a�Ked dur-
ing the semester if everything is working out
with their tutors.
A tutor who preferred to remain anoii.mous
said a problem facing the program is the violation
of the "no-dating" policy.
The tutor said, "When you get hired, they tell
you this is not a dating service. You are not sup-
posed to date anyone you tutor. However, I've
heard of some of the girls dating the athletes they
tutor and doing their work for them. It's not
right and it's giving the rest of us a bad name.
There needs to be stricter enforcement of this
Several tutors mentioned that some of the
athletes would wait till the night before a test or
paper before they would call them for help. This
also is another problem facing the program.
"When someone is 20 or 21, you can't make
them !eam Farris said. "You can't force them to
do their work. They have to want it
The tutoring program is always in need of
more tutors. Anyone who is interested in becom-
ing a tutor and has at least a 2.5 GPA may contact
Amy Barnes at 328-4673.
President supports boosting
RALEIGH (AP) - Gov. Jim Hunt's
efforts to establish national stan-
dards for teaching received a boost
from President Clinton Tuesday
night in his State of the Union
As he called education his No. 1
priority, Clinton emphasized the
need for the "best teachers" and
cited efforts by Hunt and the
National Board for Professional
Teaching Standards to establish
nationally accepted credentials for
excellence in teaching.
"I was very pleased that he men-
tioned the hard work that's gone
into setting high rigorous standards
for teachers that many of us have
been involved in for the last 10
years Hunt said in a telephone
interview after watching the speech
at the governor's mansion.
Hunt created and chairs the
teaching standards board, which
promotes better teaching through
voluntary certification. North
Carolina was one of the first states
to reward better teaching excellence
by supporting teachers who seek
National Board certification.
The president said 500 of those
master teachers have been certified
since 1995 and his budget would
enable 100,000 more to seek nation-
al certification as master teachers.
North Carolina leads the nation in
the number of educators, with 93
who have successfully gone through
the rigorous process, according to
the governor's office.
Hunt said teachers must take
videos of their teaching to an assess-
ment center as part of the process.
As a reward, those in North Carolina
get an extra 4 percent in their pay-
checks each year.
Hunt said he would recommend
this year that the bonus be raised to
Hunt said many parts of the
president's speech provided a pre-
view to his State of the State
address next week
"The presidents' proposals
tonight are very similar to those that
we're focusing on in North Carolina.
He also had a great deal to say about
early childhood the governor said.
"Smart Stan is the nation's out-
standing systemwide approach for
providing good opportunities for
The governor said he also agreed
with the president's strong words
about the need to protect young
children and teen-agers from the
influence of tobacco, a statement
that received cheers from legislators
in the gallery.
"I agree with that Hunt said.
"But I also stand up for the right of
our farmers to raise tobacco, our

but according to VanSant, the stu-

that are finishing their four years
of teaching VanSant said. After
that -and the state has done a
study on this - they are leaving at
about the same rate as non-
Teaching Fellow teachers. In
other words, teachers are leaving
the classroom in droves
VanSant cited two reasons why,
in her opinion, teachers are not
staying in the profession. One is
lack of pay increases for experi-
enced, veteran teachers. The
other was the lack of a comfort-
able work environment.
"Teachers are professionals.
What professional do you know
that doesn't have an office and a
phone?" VanSant said.
With such a high percentage of
even the best teachers leaving the
classrooms, VanSant said it is
becoming more and more impor-
tant to publicize the Teaching
Fellows program, which is trying
to change the image of teaching
and make it a more respected pro-
fession. Students in our region of
the state, in particular, need to be

"We need to get out the word

The Wild West has several connotations, depending on the angle one takes. For some, the Wild West
represents a time of adventure and discovery, a time when human sweat and blood paved unimagin-
able roads for future generations.
For others, the Wild West symbolizes a time of lawlessness and violence where even the most
respectable citizen carried a pistol at his or her side. Life was dangerous then; either you defended
yourself, or you became the next name on a tombstone.
That was a time long gone. Or so we at TEC thought. Last week, one of our local TV news stations
aired a feature detailing the increasing violence that is plaguing Greenville. Considering the
Greenville's relatively small size, the city and its citizens have witnessed an inordinate amount of
murders within a short period of time.
One can speculate about the causes of such violence, and one can point fingers, but that is not our
concern at the moment. What concerns us at TEC is a comment made by someone from the Pitt
County Sheriff's office. When questioned about Greenville's violence, an official was quoted as say-
ing Greenville is now like the Wild West, that it is a town of lawlessness.
Fine. He is entitled to that opinion. But he went a step further, a step that should not be taken by
any official who represents a community. He said Greenville citizens should arm themselves with
guns in an effort to defend themselves.
While we arc sure that many local residents may view such a statement as being filled with wis-
dom and sincere concern, such a statement also endorses vigilante actions. An elected official should
be a person the community can look up to and depend on, someone who will work hard to solve the
community's problems. We at TEC feel that the official's unthinking sutement only increases the
problem of local violence; it does not in any form or fashion offer a solution.
We understand that the local law enforcers have their hands full, if not tied, but laws are instated
for a specific purpose - to maintain a sense of peace. If the Sheriff's office tells the public to go out
and purchase guns, the result can only be an increased state of unrest. What happens when someone
decides to use one of those guns, for whatever purpose? Who is going to be the judge and jury who
distinguishes a criminal act from a justified act of self-defense?
We don't have any simple solutions.
Community violence is not a simple issue. Many factors play a part in the problem, whether they
cultural or economic. What we do firmly .believe is that an increase in gun ownership does not deter
crime. If anything, it increases the possibility of violent deaths.
Greenville is not the wild west yet. Crime is bad, but crime is a fact of life throughout the entire
country. If you want to really experience a taste of the Wild West, stick a gun on the side of every hot
shot out there and see what happens. The next drunken fist fight downtown will end up� bit more
messy, and then you'll feel like a true cowboy.
Guns are not the solution. There have got to be other paths to travel.
LETTERS TO T.HE EDITOR
Ricultystaff would benefit from SRC
Ebonics: language or laziness?
Some say it's a dialect. Others say it
is slang. The rest say it is a language,
but only a select few have any real
point of view.
People are for it. People arc
against it. Conservatives want to
apprehend it, to kill it. Many want to
prevent it from flourishing.
So many people seem to be afraid
of it. They are righting like cats and
Just because a person is in a posi-
tion of power, or is an educator, does
not make that person an expert on
the subject of ebonies.
Columnist Stanley Crouch refers
to Ebonics as 'coon' business. He
says, "the problem is teachers don't
know how to teach At least, he
acknowledges that a problem exist.
So, even though he is against estab-
lishing Ebonics as an official language,
he seems to be implying that we need
Tb the Editor,
I am writing in response to Mr.
Bazlukt's letter in the Tuesday,
February 4, 1997 issue of TEC. I not
only agree but wish to take his argu-
ment one step further.
1 am willing to bet that in the
recesses of the Health Sciences
Library that there is a research paper
or two that would support employee
benefits of physical fitness. Current
corporate trends bare this out in that
corporations are building in-house
facilities for their employees. Glaxo-
Wellcomc and PCMH are two exam-
ples in Greenville of having instituted
corporate fitness centers. Even one of
our choices for an HMO,
Healthsource, offers $150 towards a
membership in a fitness center.
I would also be willing to guess
that the health insurance companies
have informatZi�ion and research that
would support physical fitness
amongst employees reduces health
care costs overall. Could the
University offer to use the money that
is saved in reduced health care costs
to go towards the Recreation Center?
Maybe have faulty and staff pay to use
the facility but if it is used by the indi-
vidual more than twenty days each
month, refund the monthly fee? 1 do
not believe that the students should
be made to pay for our use of the facil-
ity but there should be some way to
SGA executives deserve free tuition
lb the Editor,
The truth about SGA spending can
only be dealt with by someone who
has done their homework. As of last
semester, SGA spent $3504 on the
tuition of four executive council
members, another $800 was allocated
for books. The stipends per month
were as follows: President $400, vice
president $225, treasurer $250, and
the secretary received $200. The
grand tout of these expenditures for
the executive council for one semes-
ter is $8604, give or take a few.
There were 17,479 students
enrolled in the previous semester.
There average student is paying a
whopping total of $.49 to be repre-
sented on a state wide level. Many
people will spend this amount in typ-
ing paper to voice their disapproval of
the matter. This is a minuscule
amount of money, per student, to have
good representation. It is my opinion
that the stipend should be withdrawn
and only the tuition should be paid.
No actual money should switch hands
and it would only total approximately
$.20 per student.
It is an honor to receive free tuition
for your representation of the
University and not exactly an honor to
boast about a $400 per month income.
The legislature has had a huge
amount of time to resolve this issue,
unfortunately, you the students are
going to be entrenched in this sort of
propaganda once again seeing that it is
to teach teachers how to teach. How
odd! Teaching students how to speak
proper English, and teaching teachers
how to teach these children is exactly
what the entire issue of Ebonics
stems from, in the first place. The
Oakland School Board wants to do
just that. Teach students and teach-
ers. So does everyone who is for
Derrick Bell, a law professor, says,
"Any damn thing that is out of the
main stream of what white people
feel comfortable with causes a contro-
Some educated blacks feel that
the issue of ebonies brings them
down. Down to where? Down to
what? Perhaps they feel it is taking
them back away from the white
world that they now are a part of and
back to their pre-conceived colored
This kind of thinking is crazy. It
is nothing short of prejudice. Even
some blacks seem to have allowed
white society to prejudice them ,
against their selves.
For blacks and society in general,
to do nothing about the African-
American elementary and high school
student's problems in reading and
writing English productively, is like
shooting your self in the foot.
It hurts, causes pain, and prevents
'equal rights' for all U.S. citizens.

compromise on this issue.
I feel that decisions are often made
by people who may earn a salary where
there is discretionary money available
for spending on physical fitness but
what the support staff who earn under
$20,000 a year and for who this is a
luxury that they can't afford? A good
number of faculty and staff feel as if
they are being nickled and dimed to

ple of how the University devalues
Assistant Director of Student
Department of University Unions
I'm sure that all of you have heard the
rumor going around about ECU. You
know, the one saying that we're a
party school. Well, guess what? We are.
Yes, that's right. We know how to
have a good time out here. We can
throw the best tailgate panics ever.
Have you ever been to a bowl game
that ECU is playing in? If you have,
then you know how that whole city is
painted purple and gold while we're in
town. And you better believe that
when Halloween comes around, we're
But, do we really want to be known
only for our parrying skills? What can
we, as students, do to help?
Well, way back in the day, ECU
students didn't know how to party
responsibly. We students need to
show the world that, yes, we like to
party, but we can do it safely, which
means no more fighting in our lovely
night clubs, no more turning over cars.
and most importantly no more drink-
ing and driving.
The one incident people associat-
ed most with ECU is the ESPN foot-
ball game which had ECU praying
against Syracuse. You know, the one
where a fight between students broke
out and the camera man just so hap-
pened to catch it on tape. Of course,
it's all blamed on all the alcohol that
we consume before the game.
Everyone took this incident and blew
it way out of proportion. I mean, yes,
our infamous "ECU Mike Tysons" did
make us look bad while throwing
punches at each other. But this one
incident shouldn't be associated with
the whole university.
Another thing that people don't
understand about us East Carolinians
is our shrine, downtown. Downtown,
for those of you who aren't aware of
this, is the street where all those bars
are that you go to almost every night.
We worship downtown. If we can fii
a reason to go out and celebrate, Dab
gun it, we will. There is nothing
wrong with going out every night.
What the rest of the world doesn't
realize, is that us smart party people
know to do our homework before we
go out and not when we get back. And
you know, other colleges have a street
like our 5th Street. For example, N.C.
State has Hilisborough Street, which
has more bars than our 5th Street. So,
why aren't they considered a party
It all boils down to one point, we
East Carolinians know how to party
And yes, we are also proud of our aca-
demic side. We do take our studying
seriously. But we also know how to
have a good time. So, maybe instead
of the other colleges trying to put us
down, they should come out to the
Emerald City and see just what East
Carolina is all about.

Nerf Herder (a band whose name came from George Lucas' film The Empire
Strikes Back) have compiled a debut self-titled album that will thrill you,
bore you and leave you standing in no-man's land as soon as it's all said and
The three man band, Steve, Parry, and Charlie, have come up with a
groove that touches upon many bands in the music scene at large. With gui-
tar sounds that mimic Green Day and vocal melodies that match up to any
Weezer hit, you'll find that originality isn't their strong suit.
So an original sound isn't what they're looking for. If you ask me, the
band has a whole comic approach to what they're doing in the first place.
They're playing music together for a living. They're writing songs about Van
Halen, having a few laughs, and are constantly moving on to other clubs,
making music in the newest local scene.
"Van Halen" is a song about that group which actually pays them much
respect. For the early years, when Eddie was playing "Eruption the song
sounds pretty good; however, Nerf Herder takes a turn in its music and

One of the things about art that
impresses me the most is that,

not everyone can do it. Take, for exam-

can't write them to save my life.
Another art form I wish I could do well
is dance. I don't mean dance the way

Jim Jarmusch has a knack for making interesting
films. If you've ever seen his Night on Earth or
Mystery Train, then you know what I mean. His
films are filled with strange and bizarre charac-
ters, quirky dialogue and intriguing, often starkly
beautiful, visuals. It should come as no surprise
then that his latest film, Dead Man. has all of
these elements within it.
In this black and white western written and
directed by Jarmusch, Johnny Depp plays Bill
Blake, an accountant from Cleveland who wears
glasses, a bow tie and a plaid suit. He starts out as
quite the nerd. Having recently lost both his par-
ents, Blake uses his life savings to travel by train
from his hometown, Cleveland, to a small town
named Machine. He has a letter that promises
him a job when he gets there. Sounds simple
Wrong. Within the first few minutes things go
wacky. First of ali, manic actor Crispin Glover
shows up on the train as a soot-covered fireman
and tells Blake, "I wouldn't trust no words writ-
ten on no piece of paper He warns Blake about
Machine and calls it the end of the line.
Of course, the expected happens and when
Blake arrives in Machine, the job has already been
taken. He tries to work his way past the manager,
played to slimy perfection by John Hurt, so that
he can talk to the big boss about the situation.
But when he succeeds he gets more than he bar-
gains for. The big boss turns out to be the eternal
tough guy, Robert Mitchum, who would just as
soon shoot Blake as look at him.
Penniless and jobless, Blake is lost at the end
of the world. And the plot just gets stranger. A
series of mishaps turns the once hopeful accoun-
tant into a wanted murderer, an outlaw with three
bounty hunters on his trail (one of whom is the
sullen and creepy Lance Henriksen).
Blake meets and befriends an outcast Native
American (Gary Farmer) who calls himself
"Nobody" since his name translates literally as
"He who talks loud and says nothing Nobody
mistakenly believes Blake to be the poet William
� Blake, who is one of the Indian's heroes.
Throughout the film. Nobody helps Blake with
his journey, one that had begun as a physical voy-
age but ends up being spiritual.
This sacred overtone, as well as much what
Jarmusch accomplishes in the film, owes a great
deal to director Ingmar Bergman. The look and
feel of Dead Man is reminiscent of Bergman's The
Seventh Seal, in which a knight encounters Death
and plays chess with him in order to win his life
back. The starkness of the wilderness, the
monotony of the beginning train ride, the solem-
nity of Blake's character, even the black and
white film stock used, all harken back to Bergman
As much as Jarmusch owes to Bergman,
though, he owes more to pop culture. Dead Man is
full of pop culture references and representa-
tions. Iggy Pop, former lead singer of the Stooges
and current solo artist, and Gibby Haines, lead
singer for P (a band which features Depp on gui-
tar) and the Butthole Surfers, both make appear-
ances in the film. There are characters in the film
named after George Drakoulias, a big-time record
producer, and Benmont Tench, a member of Tom
Petty and the Heartbreakers. Two marshals sent
to capture Blake are named Lee and Marvin after

Tips shared for preventing STDs
STl'DENT HEALTH SERVICE
Despite the increased public atten-
tion given to STDs, many questions
and misinformation about STD pre-
vention abound. The intent of this

"Health Minute" is to address some
of the most commonly asked ques-
tions the Student Health Service
receives about STD prevention.
Question: Can a person get an
STD from oral sex?
Answer: Yes. The fact is that
STDs can be transmitted through
unprotected oral, anal and vaginal
sex. With specific reference to oral
sex, a person can acquire an oral
infection of such diseases as chlamy-
dia, herpes, genital warts and gonor-
Although the direct relationship
between oral sex and HIV transmis-
sion is still debated, there is mount-
ing evidence that HIV can be trans-
mitted through oral sex. The best
method of preventing an STD is by
practicing abstinence. Specifically,
abstinence refers to refraining from
oral, anal and vaginal sex.
If people choose to engage in oral
sex, some type of barrier should be
used to prevent the exchange of bod-
ily fluids. In performing fellatio (oral
sex on a male partner), non-lubricat-
ed condoms should be used. In per-
forming cunnilingus (oral sex on a
female partner), a barrier such as a
dental dam should be used. A dental
dam is a piece of square latex that is
placed over the area in which oral sex
is to be performed on the female
partner, if dental dams are difficult
to find, a non-lubricated male con-
dom that is cut at both ends and
down the long way can be a suffi-
cient and convenient alternative for
Question: Is there a separate
screening test that can be done for
each of the different STDs?
Answer: Yes. For example, syphilis
requires a blood test. Chlamydia and
gonorrhea require a sample of fluids
from the vagina or male urethra for
lab testing. Herpes and genital warts
generally require a physical examina-
tion which looks for signs of these
diseases. HIV involves a blood test.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing
as a single lab test to tell if a person
is completely disease-free.
Students interested in obtaining
an STD screening may make an
appointment at the Student Health
Service by calling 328-6317. When
making an appointment, indicate to
the appointment secretary that you
would like an appointment for a
"personal reason" and specify your
preference for either a male or a
female health care provider.
There is no charge for seeing a
Student Health Service health care
provider. If the provider recom-
mends screening tests, there is a rea-
sonable fee associated with having
these tests done. The Student
Health Service does not provide HIV
antibody testing. Students interest-
ed in a free and anonymous HIV test

Question: How effective are cdjjj
doms at preventing STDs? "�
Answer: Latex condoms aw
effective in reducing the risk for d�
ease transmission, but they do rifff
provide 100 percent protection
When latex condoms are used con-
sistently, correctly and with a spefr
micide, they may have a failure rar�
as low as two percent. When con-
doms are not used both consistently
and correctly with every act of inter-
course, the failure rate could be j�
high as 15 percent.
Question: Is one brand of conr
dom better than the others? -r
Answer: The answer to this ques-
tion is not precise. Condoms ace
considered a personal product, like
laundry detergent or toothpaste.
Everyone seems to have a prefer
ence for a particular brand.
In the May 1995 edition of
Consumer Reports, the following con-
doms were ranked as the top five in
che category of "burst index Excita
Extra Ultra-Ribbed, Ramses Extra
Ribbed, Sheik Elite, Lifestyle Vtbra-
Ribbed and Ramses Extra. Products
with the higher scores on this index
should offer greater assurance
against breakage in use. (The
Student Health Service does not
endorse any of the products listed
above. The information was surj
plied for educational purposes only?)
All condoms sold in the U.S. have
to meet the standards put forth by
the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA). Therefore, if people find a
brand that does not cause any prob-
lems and they like it, there is no rea
son to switch brands.

to STD prevention, please call the

Ruling two to one, the VS. Sixth

Baker, 22, is the first person to be pros-
ecuted for Internet writings in a case
that drew a storm of controversy about
Baker smiled slightly, but showed
little emotion when told of the ruling.
He faced up to five years in prison if
convicted on the federal charges.
Tb be honest with you, I was
expecting this to go the other way
Baker said. "It's a pleasant surprise
Baker said he was weary from the
two-year ordeal, which began in Rsb.

Baker's Internet posting describing the
rape and murder of a U-M woman stu-
dent, whom he named. He was sus-
pended from U-M and arrested by the

offensive Baker said. "In this case, the
careful monitoring turned into a mass
hysteria and a witch hunt
Baker was first charged for the rape
and murder story. But federal authori-
ties later decided not to prosecute
Baker for that story, charging him
instead in connection with e-mail mes-
sages sent to Arthur Gonda at an
Ontario address. In those messages.
Baker discussed abducting and tortur-
ing young women.
But the story became part of the
case because Gonda first contacted
Baker after reading that story on the
Internet. Gonda was never located.
Ruling in 1995, Judge Cohn said the
e-mail was not a threat because it did
not specify a person or convey an
immediate, unconditional and
unequivocal act. In their majority opin-
ion, US. Appeals Court Judges Boyce
Martin and Martha Daughtrey agreed
"Baker and Gonda apparently sent
e-mail messages to each other in an
attempt to foster a friendship based on
shared sexual fantasies not to threat-
en the women, the judges wrote.
However, Judge Robert Krupansky,

lyrics when the subject of Sammy
Hagar comes up. The song describes
a typical scenario in rock n' roll. In
the beginning, a group of kids get
together and form a band. The band
makes its mark, kicks the singer out,
grabs a new one and suddenly every-
thing is cheesy. "bn Halen" is a song
people can relate to. Anyone who
knows anything about n Halen
knows that David Lee Roth is the
one and only true singer for that
band. Apparently, Nerf Herder does
There's also another song on the
record that spits out a comic
approach. It's a song called
"Nosering Girl There's just some-
thing about three guys singing about
their mad obsession with girls with
fear and intimidation, which in fact
ultimately occurred Krupansky wrote.
The U.S. solicitor general must
decide whether to ask for a rehearing
before the full 16-judge federal appeals
court or take the case to the US.
"You must look at the person the
message was intended for. By no stretch
of the imagination was Gonda threat-
ened by the e-mail Baker's attorney
Douglas Mullkoff, said. "The story was
only shown to the woman after the U-
M Department of Public Safety found
it. The purpose of the e-mail was to fos-
ter a friendship about sexual fantasies
FBI Special Agent Greg Stejskal,
the chief investigator in the case, said
the ruling raised the standard for prov-
ing a threat.
"The standard was what a reason-
able person considers to be a threat
Stejskal said. "Now the standard,
according to these two judges, is that
you must look at the subjective intent.
Was he just kidding? Who decides?"
Howard Simon, director of the
American Civil Liberties Union of
Michigan, said, "The court reinforced
the distinction between fantasies and
threats. Even sick fantasies are free
speech; threats are criminal behavior
noserings. It's hard to make out with
someone when you're always worry-
ing about breaking their face. The
song's sarcasm overwhelms me.
Yet, there's not much beyond
comedy on the album. The main rea-
son this record is weak is its lack of
originality. It sounds the same as any
typical punk rock band who might
have grazed a chart in the mid to late
'80s. A lot of those bands were really
good, but it's been done. The bands
have played the clubs, waited for
their turn in line for a speck of inter-
national fame, only to find them-
selves later stuck in lousy day-to-day
Overall, I think the music is
entertaining. It makes me laugh. The
only problem I'm having is under-
standing what I'm laughing at. Is it
the music or the band? If the two are
the same, 1 am left in a state of
euphoria. If not, well Do you

Pirates drop road game by two
Rodman Reinstated To Bulls
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dennis Rodman, mindful that he could face ban-
ishment from the NBA if he takes another wrong step, returns to the
Chicago Bulls next week. And he'll be playing for free until next month.
Suspended without pay by the NBA since kicking a courtside camera-
man during a game between the Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves on Jan.
15, Rodman was reinstated by the league Tuesday, effective after the All-
"I think it's unfortunate for the fans and everybody else that it
occurred Rodman said Tuesday night at halftime of the game between the
Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers at the Anaheim Arena. "I'm
glad I can come back and play like I do again.
"I could say I'm sorry until I'm blue in the face, and it wouldn't prove
anything. But I'm going to play for free. That shows that it isn't all about
Rodman's agent, Dwight Manley, said earlier in the day that his client,
as a gesture of appreciation to his fans, will play his first 11 games after the
suspension "for free, and donate the money on behalf of himself and the
Bulls to 11 assorted charities
No Breakthroughs at Umpires Meeting
PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Baseball's big summit meeting of players,
umpires and owners failed to produce any changes in the sport's disciplinary
Instead, as often happens in sticky situations, baseball created a com-

Yankees pitcher David Cone said after Tuesday's six-hour session. "There
will be more meetings of this nature, probably on a smaller scale. Ws're not
going to solve all the problems of the world in one day"
Umpires are still angry over the Roberto Alomar spitting incident.
Players are upset that umpires sometimes spark confrontations instead of
diffusing them. Owners are frustrated that neither players nor umpires are

Injuries Knock Barkley, Drexler Out of All-Star Game
NEW YORK (AP) - Charles Barkley on Tuesday ruled himself out of the
All-Star game because of an ankle sprain, and teammate Clyde Drexler later
aggravated a hamstring injury that will force him to miss the game, too.
The NBA selected Detlef Schrempf of the Seattle SuperSonics to take
Barkley's place, and a replacement for Drexler should be named
Drexler reinsured his right hamstring late in the fourth quarter of a 99-
95 loss to the New York Knicks. He had returned Sunday from the injury,
which sidelined him for the previous two games.
Barkley, picked as a Western Conference starter in fan balloting, has
missed the Houston Rockets' last seven games because of a sprained right
ankle. He said he expects to return to the lineup a week from Friday against
"I made up my mind today when I tried to practice and I couldn t do
some stuff Barkley said before the game against the Knicks. "I'm not ready
to play tonight, and I don't think it's fair to jeopardize the rest of our sea-

Bowler Sets Three-game Series Record
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Jeremy Sonnenfeld is going into the record books as
the first bowler to roll three consecutive perfect games in competition.
"It's total elation the University of Nebraska sophomore said Tuesday
after learning that his feat was being officially recognized by the American
Sonnenfeld, 20, a business major, bowled the 36 strikes in a row on
Sunday in Lincoln.
"It is the equivalent of someone getting three holes in one on a 540-yard
par five he said. "It's something nobody thought could be done
Jack Mordini of the ABC compared Sonnenfeld's feat with the golfing
exploits of Tiger Woods, the only person to win three straight U.S. Amateur
"Obviously, he should receive all the adulation that anyone setting a
world record should receive Mordini said of Sonnenfeld.
Bowling's sanctioning body, the ABC has kept records for 101 years.
Sonnenfeld is the first to officially hit 36 strikes in a three-game scries.
Sonnenfeld will be presented with an award Saturday at opening cere-
monies of the 1997 ABC amateur tournament in Huntsville, Ala which
includes 9,285 teams competing over four months.
Cigar Wins Second Straight Horse of the Year Award
NEW YORK (AP) - Jerry Bailey, who rode Cigar around the world and into
the record books, summed up the horse's career pretty well.
"I appreciate what Cigar did for me Bailey said Tuesday night, "but I
think we should all appreciate what he did for racing
Cigar became the first horse since Triple Crown winner Affirmed in 1979
to win consecutive Horse of the Year awards, and it also completed his sec-
ond straight sweep of Eclipse awards. On Jan. 10, he was named best older
horse or gelding in North America after winning five of eight starts, includ-
ing the $4 million Dubai World Cup and Woodward Stakes.
Cigar, who reached celebrity status even outside racing circles, was the
overwhelming choice of the three voting groups - the Thoroughbred Racing
Associations, National Turf Writers Association and Daily Racing Form. Skip
Away, the 3-year-old champion, was the only other horse to receive votes.
Cigar received 28 of 29 votes from the TRA, 109 of 118 from the Dairy
Racing Form and 131 of 145 from the turf writers. Skip Away had a total of

STEPPIN' UP TO THE PLATE
There are many groups that deal
with ECU athletics in some form
everyday. One of these groups is the
ECU equipment managers.
Many people have never heard of
an equipment manager, or have any
idea what an equipment manager
does. The main job of an equipment
manager is to make sure an athlete
has everything that he or she needs
to play the game at a maximum
level. This means if a basketball
player needs some new basketball
shoes, an equipment manager will
provide the new shoes.
Being an equipment manager is
important because he or she is
behind the scenes until he or she
are needed. Much of an equipment
manager's success depends on the
amount of the pride that he or she
takes in the job.
Jason Roberson, assitant equip-
ment manager, and six year veteran
says he takes pride in his work;
that's why he's successful.
"Anybody can do this job, but the
success rate is how much you put in
to it Roberson said. "My favorite
sport to manage is football because
of the traveling, and the big crowds.
This spring I'll be doing baseball,
and it will be a learning experience
Getting into equipment manag-
ing is easy. There are some people
who have never played a sport who
are equipment managers. One of
the main things that must be
learned is responsibility and safety,
especially the safety of a football
player, because of the high impact
collisions that occur on each and

every play Lives are at stake every
time a player puts on a helmet and
shoulderpads. When an athlete feels
tentative about the way the equip-
ment feels, he or she is more prone
to get injured.
In order to ensure that a player
with any sport is as safe as he or she
can possibly be, a new movement
has been developed from the pro-
fessional ranks of equipment man-
aging down to the high school level.
This movement is called equip-
ment management certification.
This certification test concentrates
on the areas of fitting equipment,
inventory, maintenance, laundry,
accounting and management skills.
Head ECU Equipment Manager
Dan Glinski believes the certifica-
tion test is a good thing.
The certification protects you
in cases of tragedy With the certifi-
cation you are seen by your peers as
being knowledgeable of equipment
managing. You can't be accused of
not properly knowing how to fit an
athlete, "Glinski said.
Glinski has had a number of
equipment managing jobs and
internships, but has now settled
down at ECU as the head equip-
"I've had an internship with
Georgia Tech for a year, and I was
with the Atlanta Falcons for six
months. During that time I teamed
a lot of ways of handling equipment.
We even use the internet to find out
different ways of handling equip-
ment Glinski said.
The equipment management
job doesn't come without criticism.
If a school plays on national TV, the
following days will bring calls from
other equipment managers from
across the country Typical ques-
tions would be: What kind of uni-
forms do you wear or what kind of
polish do you use to make the foot-
ball helmets shine?
The hours of an equipment
manager can be tough. During the
fall an equipment manager's work-
day can start at 5:30 a.m. and not
end until 5 p.m. that evening.
"During the fall season I general-
ly work an 80 hour work week. On
average 12 hours a day Glinski
The next time you go to a sport-
ing event, take notice of the damage
free uniforms and equipment. The
uniforms and equipment are in this
condition because of the team
behind the team, the equipment
managers. Without their hard work
and dedication, ECU athletics
would be at a lower standard.
