A new agenda and pertinent issues were the
focus of the semester's second meeting of the
general body members of Allied Blacks for
Leadership and Equality (A.B.L.E). The orga-
nization met Tuesday evening at the Ledonia
Wright .African American Cultural Center to
plan for upcoming events and discuss issues
relevant to minority student life.
Spring semester ushered in a new execu-
tive board and a host of new concerns for the
organization which is the center of The Black
Student Union.
"Now that A.B.L.E is under new leader-
ship, we have many new ideas and goals we
intend to meet this semester A.B.L.E.
President Tvtishia Frazier said.

STAFF REPORTS
In Monday's meeting of the Student
Government .Association (SGA), when the
time came to discuss old business, the future
of the organization's executive board tuition
payment plan came into question. As TEC
reported last week, sophomore class president
Cliff Webster had intoduced a resolution
denouncing the infamous bill. The bill, origi-
nally passed in the spring of 1996, allows for
the payment of the executive council's fall
and spring tuition by student fees. Webster
introduced the resolution to overturn the bill
two weeks ago. Moday evening when the res-
olution came into question, it was revealed
that the resolution had "failed committee
meaning the student welfare committee had
already voted in opposition of the resolution.
Objections arose which led to SGA having to
vote as a body. Later, by means of secret bal-
lot, it was decided that the tuition bill passed
favorably with a vote of 26 to 11 with a few
members abstaining.
Although no other univerity in the UNC
system has a comparable tuition bill for their
student body executives, SGA members in
favor of the bill at ECU maintain that the bill
is legitimate and that SGA officials do more
than their share to warrant the use of student
fees.
Among the things discussed at the meeting
were the role and fundamentals of affirmative
action and the seeming organizational bias that
occurs when A.B.L.E. and other minority stu-
dent groups submit proposals for event fund-
ing to the Student Government Association
(SGA).
"The funding process really has some
holes in it Frazier said, adding that she felt
students were unaware of the control SGA has
over what student organizations can and can-
not do. "They make all the decisions, and
when it comes to getting funds allocated,
minority organizations like A.B.L.E. and the
Native American Student Organization have
to go through a lot more to get a lot less

In Tuesday's edition of TEC, it was
announced that A.B.L.Es general body meet-
ing would be on Wednesday afternoon at 6
p.m. when, in fact, the meeting was held
Tuesday night. In the future, all general body
meetings will be held on the second Tuesday
of each month at 6 p.m. Any exceptions will be
duly posted.

The Spot, located in Mendenhall Student Center, is one of the university's "quick-stop" dining options.
Students voice concern that these type establishments give less substance for meals, cost more and quickly
deplete declining balance accounts.

Several changes, stemming from student complaints, are com-
ing to campus dining next year.
These changes include an increased declining balance for
the 9 and 14 meal plans, a new design idea for the Galley and a
possible change in dinning hall hours.
University Dining Services
Director, Frank Salamon, real-
izes campus dining is not per-
fect. However, he said
University Dining Services is
making every effort to follow
up on student complaints and
correct them to the best of
their ability.
One of the major ways they
receive complaints is through
their txd advisory meetings.
This meeting is at Todd
Dining Hall in Sweethearts.
All of the cafe and dining hall
managers attend this meeting
to discuss what is going on in
their location. According to
marketing manager, Chris
Warren student input they
receive ranges from product
ideas to complaints about ser-
vice or meal plan options.
One specific question stu-
dents have asked is, why is
there is one type of food in
one location and not in anoth-
er? Warren explains that
there are space restrictions.
For instance the Galley offers
pizza and the Croatan does
not. The reason for this is the
Croatan has several large grills
and there is not enough room for an oven to bake pizza.
Another example is the Health Choice Deli that is found in the
Spot and the Wright Place, but not in another cafe. This is
because these locations were remodeled and these features
were added. According to Warren and Salamon, this is a good
thing since it makes each cafe unique.
"In a way this helps to offer the greatest amount of variety
everywhere Warren said. "If we can not offer a product some-
where we try to offer it somewhere else
Another common complaint about dining services deals with
the price of food. Salamon want students to understand that
Dining Services does not receive money from the University. It
is a self-financing program. They do not try to set unreasonable
prices, they simplv set them like any other business. They look
at the cost of making that product and also look at the cost of
running the program.
Another change campus dining will be making for the stu-
dents is increasing the declining balance provided with the
meal plans. Next semester, with a 9 plus meal plan you will
receive $150 in declining balance, with the 14 meal plan, stu-
dents will receive $125. and with the 19 there is no change.
According to Salamon. dining services realized the students on
the lower meal plans use more declining balance, and he feels
this should help student's declining balance last through a
semester.
.As far as changes for next year go dining services is seriously
considering changing the hours for dinner. They feel most stu-
dents do not eat until later in the evening. Salamon believes
that 4:30 is too early to start dinner. In order to accommodate
athletes with late practices, and because he has found the
majority of students eat after 6 p.m they may extend dinner
hours as late as 8 p.m. They are also in the process of moving
and remodeling the Galley. They plan to have a coffee shop and
a place for live music and other entertainment. They also plan
on the Galley staying open later.

Annually on spring break the Kast Carolina
gospel choir tours across several states singing
in various churches. Choir members say they
use their unique gift of musical ministry to wit-
ness to all people about Jesus Christ.
"Typically, the gospel choir performs in
churches within big cities like Atlanta and New
York, which allows choir members to visit many
famous landmarks as the I'nderground and
lime Square said sophomore choir member
Vaneecia Ljrk. . �
Some choir members like sophomore
laKenya Gibbs, look forward to traveling to
these big cities.
" Greenville and Raleigh don't offer MGM
Studios and Disney World you pay some
money and go have fun. here you have to make
your fun, but their you can just go and do it
Gibbs said.
On the other hand regardless of where the
gospel choir tours, other choir members like
senior Cookie Williams find the tour to be a
lucrative experience.
"By the middle of the week people are trip-
ping and it even brings some of the quiet ones

Over the past two years the gospel choir has
also toured to places such as Chicago,
Philadelphia, Florida, and High Baint, but this

Study finds high rate of pesticides in state's
groundwater
RALEIGH (AP) - The results of a study showing an alarming rate of pesti-
cide contamination in the state's groundwater are skewed because the focus
was on the most vulnerable areas of the state, a lobbyist said.
Scientists who conducted the five-year study set up 97 special monitoring
wells statewide in areas known to be vulnerable to pesticide leaching. Of the
97 sites, 26 were contaminated and one in 10 sites had pesticide levels that
approached or exceeded levels considered unsafe for drinking.
The study, released Tuesday, was produced by the Department of
Agriculture and the Department of Environment, Heath and Natural
Resources at a cost of more than $1 million.
Scientists tell farmers future of blue mold
LAUREL SPRINGS, N.C. (AP) - Scientists will try to head off another blue
mold epidemic by c'e.ecting the tobacco disease earlier, employing the right
chemicals and setting up a system forgetting the word out to farmers in time.
About 140 burley-tobacco farmers gathered in Ashe County to hear how
scientists are trying to forecast and fight the spread of blue mold, which last
year destroyed about a quarter of North Carolina's burley-tobacco crop.
C.E. Main, the chairman of the university's plant-pathology department,
has sought ways to rid tobacco of diseases for more than 30 years. But blue
mold is hard to track, he told farmers Tuesday.
Bridgeport police investigate whether rap video had
role in girl's death
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - An 8-year-old girl was fatally shot in her home,
and police were investigating whether she might have been imitating a scene
from a rap video.
Tynisha Gathers was shot in the forehead by one of three other children
playing with a handgun after the four had been watching television Tuesday
evening in the home of the victim's grandmother, police said.
Fblice Lt. Frank Resta said the children claimed they were replaying a
scene from a rap video when the accident occurred.
Police said they were unable to find any such tape when they checked the
living room. Police didn't say whether the children identified a particular rap
group or video.
Resta said a 10-year-old girl who fired the shot was charged with
manslaughter and taken to a juvenile detention center.
Dumping of U.S. immigration lottery forms sparks riot -
FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) - Police opened fire today to disperse riot-
ers who besieged the central post office, enraged because thousands of U.S.
immigration lottery forms were dumped into the sea.
Two passers-by spotted the forms - which give applicants a chance to win
immigration visas to the United States - floating Tuesday afternoon near the
King Jimmy wharf in the capital of this West African nation.
As word spread of the dumping and suspicions rose that officials were
responsible, several hundred protesters converged today on the post office,
hurling stones and shouting.
Riot police lobbed tear gas and fired live ammunition in the air, forcing the
protesters to retreat. After four hours of running battles, police reported 17
arrests.

Researchers log history
of Valentine's Day
CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) - One hundred years ago, lovers - re busy express-
ing tender devotion. Mail sacks sagged with valentines. Confectioners sold
heart-shaped creams. Florists suggested people say it with flowers.
"Be mine" has echoed through the mists of time.
Through war arid peace, electricity and e-mail, man on the moon and
woman in the voting booth, the essentials of Valentine's Day have stayed as
firmly embedded as Cupid's arrow.
It's just that the day keeps getting bigger.
Americans are expected to swap 950 million valentines, give 90 million
roses (eight in 10 of them red) and spend $700 million on candy for Friday.
That's a hunk of burning love.
It begins with tiny little flames.
At Greenbriar East elementary school in Virginia's Fairfax County, the
youngest children have their valentine pouches made, cards ready and
expectations primed.
On Friday, says trlird-grade teacher Mary Henry, "they will get all squig-
gly and giggly when they read them
Kids will skitter off to classroom comers to read their notes. Like gener-
ations past, they've been snipping and pasting red and white paper. Glue
sticks have replaced the glue pots of old.
The card exchange falls oft in higher grades.
"Some of them are into the boy-girl thing and some aren't said sixth-
grade teacher Mark Stevens, counting stacks of change for Friday's ice cream
party. "Some are into the boy-girl thing a little too much
Not so at a table where six boys from fifth grade are practically inhaling
lunch. The only two in this group planning to give valentines this year are
doing so under pressure.
"Mom's making me said Andrew. He will have his computer spit them
out.
At high school, the beat picks up. Expensive roses make their debut.
As in kindergarten, but for different reasons, Valentine's Day is again a
big, big deal.
A hundred years ago, Roy Farrell Greeve tried to stop all this.
In a Feb. 14,1897, cartoon in The Washington Post, he told modem girls
that Cupid and hearts were "clearly out of date
Nice try.
Elsewhere in the paper, a florist asked: "What could be prettier, or more
refined, than flowers?" In another cartoon, a mailman struggled with a sack
of "red-hot Valentines
Thirty years later, newspapers were full of love testimonials and mer-
chants out to make a buck. "Say it with flowers a flower shop implored in
1927. You could take your sweetie to Sargeant's restaurant in Washington for
a $1 turkey dinner.
Roses, "delicately tinted as her fair cheeks went for $3 to a spectacular
$10 a dozen - a day's wage for a bricklayer, or a month's child care.
For Valentine's Day 1967, a bottle of Beaujolais sold for1.99 - one quar-
ter of the price for a modest label now. A pound of Whitman chocolate in a
red foil heart box went for Si .33. Now, a Whitman's Sampler tops $.
This year, the average consumer will spend $30 on Valentine's Day, says
a retailers' survey.
Free valentine greetings, meanwhile, are whizzing through the Internet.
But the message has not changed as much as the medium.
Even the insulting valentines on the Web have their counterparts in the
penny dreadfuls of a century ago. "Tis all in vain, your simpering looks
begins one from that era.
Different accounts exist of the origins of Valentine's Day. The earfy
Christian church had at least two saints named Valentine - one, a priest who
secretly married couples against Roman orders; another, a man behind bars
who was thrown notes of affection by children he had treated kindly
English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote in the 1300s that birds chose their
mates on Valentine's Day.
The tone appeared set by 1603. William Shakespeare voiced a sentiment
heard ever since when he had Ophelia say: "And I a maid at your window,

Alarm clocks affect
mood, biorhythms
CHICAGO (AP) - Changing the
timing of when you are awake and
when you sleep can profoundly
affect your mood, according to sci-
entists who have for the first time
linked mood changes to the pre-
dictable and enduring internal
rhythms of the human body.
Two studies released Tuesday
tease apart the complex relation-
ships between daily biological
rhythms, sleep choices and
whether people feel cheerful or
blue.
The studies suggest, for exam-
ple, that even if a person has got-
ten enough sleep, he is likely to be
irritable or blue if his waking hours
center on a time when his biologi-
cal clock tells him he "should" be
asleep.
Conversely, even if a person
stays awake 36 hours straight and is
seriously sleep-deprived, he may
say he feels terrific if you ask him
about his mood at an hour when his
biological clock tells him he is sup-
posed to be awake, findings sug-
gest.
The studies show that "some
hours of the day, we're happier
than others, and it's occurring
inside us, not just in reaction to
the world around us said psychol-
ogist David F. Dinges of the
University of Pennsylvania.
He called the work a "tour de
force
The findings will pave the way
for research that one day could
help millions of depressed people
live happier lives and aid people
whose sleep patterns are disrupted
by shift work or travel, said Oinges,
chief of sleep and chronobiology in
the psychiatry department.
"We don't really understand
whether (sleep) disturbances
are leading to some of the mood
disturbances associated with night
shift work or chronic exposure to
time zone changes he said.
But since depression, anxiety

"are so widespread in humankind

pie, and lead to self-medication
with alcohol and so many other
� problems, being able to identify
the fundamental processes in
every human that may go awry in
producing them is hugely impor-
i tant Dinges said.
The studies, conducted inde-
pendently in Boston and in
Manchester, England, arc
described in a report in the
February issue of the Archives of
� General Psychiatry, released
Tuesday by the American Medical
Association.
A total of 24 healthy young vol-
unteers were confined to laborato-
ries and regimented to artificially
. long sleep-wake cycles - 30 hours
' or 28 hours instead of the usual 24
hours - for about a month.
The subjects experienced
highs and lows in mood corre-
sponding to a combined effect of
two things: the amount of time a
subject had been awake and the
subject's body temperature, which
is usually lowest in the early morn-
ing of a 24-hour sleep-wake cycle.
"This is very exciting, because
it leads us to believe that similar
mechanisms could be involved in
depression said Dr. Diane B.
Boivin, who led the Boston
research at Harvard-affiliated
Brigham and Women's Hospital.
Dr. Thomas Wehr, chief of the
Psychobiology Branch at the
National Institute of Mental
Health, said he is preparing to use
the "ingenious" design of the
studies to explore whether alter-
ing sleep patterns can combat
manic depression, which afflicts
about 1 percent of the population.
Manic depression and major
depression, which afflicts 8 per-
cent to 10 percent of the popula-
tion, are often typified by worse
moods in the morning and steadi-
ly improving moods throughout
the day, said Wehr, who was not
; involved in the new studies.
� It is known that about 60 per-
cent of major dcpressives will
respond favorably - if temporarily -
to sleep deprivation, such as being
kept up all night, Wehr said.
German researchers are now
trying to make that improvement
permanent by depriving depres-
sives of sleep and then shifting
their bedtimes to much earlier in
the evening, Wehr said.
The biological clock is an area
of the brain that serves as a pace-
maker for rhythms in biological
functions ranging from sleeping
and waking to digestion, Dinges
said.
"Over the years, it has seemed
fairly clear that in people who
have mood disorders, their mood
varies depending on when and
how much they sleep relative to
their circadian (daily) rhythms
Wehr said.
With the two new studies, sci-
entists now have at least a theo-
retical way to predict how some-
one's mood will be affected by his
sleep timing as it relates to his
own biological clock.

Frazier said she encourages all
minority organizations to send rep-
resentatives to the weekly SGA
meetings to see how things are
being done.
"If every one would just send at
least one person to speak for their
group, that may make a noticable
difference Frazier said.
Another topic of discussion was
the need for a program geared
toward minority high school stu-
dents as a means of recruitment to
ECU. The model for this idea
comes from a similar program enti-
tled Project Uplift, based at UNC-
Chapel Hill.
"The answer to having a stronger
minority student body voice is to first
increase minority enrollment
Frazier said. "Apparently these type of
programs make a lasting impression
in the minds of high school students.
So we may take a proposal of this to
the minority student affairs, and from
there it will probably go to admis-
sions
Fraizier emphasized the impor-
tance of membership to any thriving
organization.
"The only way we're going to be
able to accomplish any of the things
we have on the agenda this semester
is through our members Frazier said.
"I encourage all old and new mem-
bert o come to the meetings. Now
that we are under new leadership, we
definitely plan to use all of our stu-
dent resources wherever we can
Frazier added that other minority
organizations on campus should have
representatives at the AB.L.E. meet-
ings as well. She said the group regu-
larly tackles the topics that matter
most to minority students.
"While we are the umbrella orga-
nization for the collective minority
student groups, we still need the sup-
port of the individual groups in order
to stand
Some of the upcoming events
AB.L.E. will be contributing to
include a Black Faculty and Staff
Award Ceremony which will honor
one outstanding faculty member and
peer-nominated student and an end-
of-semester unity program with all of
the other minority organizations on
campus.
"We also will be helping out with
the Gospel Choir's anniversary cele-
bration on Feb. 22 along with the
National Pan Hellenic Council
Frazier said. "That's what we
needmore support of that nature. I
think we really should support each

Law professor's future at UNC still
uncertain
UNC School of Law Professor Barry Nakell was sus-
pended from his reaching position in October after
being charged with a misdemeanor for shoplifting $36
worth of food and a restaurant guide from A Southern
Season in the Eastgate Shopping Center.
Nakell was previously convicted in 1991 of stealing
a book from a Carrboro bookstore.
The faculty hearing committee, which is com-
posed of five University personnel, heard closing argu-
ments in Nakell's hearing Jan 24. The committee
was given 10 working days to make a recommendation
in the case.
Daniel Pollitt, acting counsel for Nakell and a
Kenan professor emeritus in the law school, said he
had not been informed of a decision.
Campus crime increases in '96 for the
University of Missouri-Columbia
Crime on campus rose considerably in several areas.
Burglaries on campus increased over 46 percent, from
54 percent in 1995 to 91 percent in 19, the
Missouri University Police Department reported.
The number of drug abuse violations also saw a 41
percent increase, from 34 to 58 offenses.
Police Chief Scott Shclton said the large increase
in drug abuse cases, usually involving marijuana, is
most likely attributed to increased awareness by uni-
versity staff.
Violent crimes on campus rase slightly in 19,
with sex offenses increasing from 17 to 25 reported
incidents and one reported rape. Aggravated assault
increased from six incidents in 1995 to nine in 19.
Vandalism cases dropped from 176 incidents in
1995 to 152 incidents. Hate crimes also dropped
from 10 to seven incidents from the previous year.
University of Tennessee students on
a quest to battle discrimination
A group of UT students will be asking SGA members
to pass a new bill this month that would add sexual
orientation to UT"s non-discrimination policy.
The students have united with faculty and staff
member to draft the bill, which, if passed, will protect
students, faculty and staff members from job discrim-
ination on the basis of sexual orientation.
This is not the first time SGA has seen such a bill.
Nearly one year ago, a similar bill presented to the
SGA would have added sexual orientation to the dis-
crimination clause found in Hilltopics.
Former SGA President Keith Townsend and the
SGA Senate tabled the bill, claiming the law was "too
ambiguous
Already, more than 300 universities and schools in
the U.S. have added sexual orientation to their dis-
crimination clauses, including the University of
Arkansas, University of South Carolina, University of
Virginia and University of Tojas, all of which are state
institutions like UT
The search and seizure policy at
Appalachian University - a success or
failure?
It has been close to a year since the University instat-
ed the current search and seizure policy. The policy
gives university police the authority to search a room
in the residence halls (with probable cause) without
first obtaining a search warrant.
ASU Police Captain Larry Foster, whose depart-
ment handles all searches called in by residents and
security assistantssays that while the police have
made more searches, they have made no official
arrests.
In Fall 1995, before the policy was enacted, there
were 25 citations written for the possession of a con-
trolled substance. In Spring 19, the first semester
under the new policy, that number jumped over 200
percent to 51. Last semester, it increased once again,
to 61 counts of possession of a controlled substance.
It is clear that the policy has had a dramatic effect
on the number of residence hall students getting

Staff replaced at battered, women's shelter
amid abuse charges
NEW YORK (AP) - Employees of a
battered women's shelter have
been replaced amid charges they
had sex with the women, used
drugs and alcohol while working
and let abusive husbands and
boyfriends in at night.
Investigators got an anonymous
tip about abuse at the New Day
shelter in the Bronx, the only shel-
ter for battered women run by city
workers. Others are run by private
agencies.
"They had gone for a place look-
ing for safety and they hadn't found
it for themselves or their children
said Brian Wing, the commissioner
of the New York State Department
of Social Services.
Eleven of 44 staff members
were suspended Tuesday without
pay; the rest were transferred.
None of the suspects were identi-
fied. Also replaced was the shel-
ter's security company.
Investigators heard details
about the abuse last month during
a public hearing of the Governor's
Commission on Domestic
Violence.
Two women told commissioners
about the shelter's problems,
including children wandering the
hails and staffers stealing food and
clothing. They also accused work-
ers of coercing them to have sex
and allowing batterers into the
shelter. They said they complained
to the administrator, who did noth-
ing.
Edward J. Kuriansky, commis-
sioner of the city's Department of
Investigation, said shoddy supervi-
sion also allowed staffers to double
and triple their pay while sleeping
on the job.
"The larger the shelter, the
more difficult it is to instill a fami-
ly spirit said Lucy Friedman,
executive director of Victim's
Services.
Choir
continued from page 1
Bahamas.
At the beginning of the year the
choir decided that they wanted to
take their ministry out of the country
and to the Bahamas.
Debra Dixon, the choir director
commented on a few reasons for
going to the Bahamas.
"It is a wonderful opportunity to
go out of the country to sing, one
main reason was for exposure, and to
give students a chance to get away,
retreat, and explore the sites Dixon
said.
Traveling to the Bahamas seemed
t excite every choir member and
some non- choir members.
"Students who had never been
part of choir wanted to join the choir
just to go on the tour and they
seemed not to car: about the real
reason for soaring said another
choir member.
Some veteran jr choir members
like sophomore Joe Williams, who is
the Sergeant at Arms and base sec-
tion leader said people who join the
choir for the Bahamas trip, have the
wrong ideas
"lb join the choir just to go on the
trip is shaky and flaky Williams said.
Surprisingly, even though the
Bahamas trip was the most anticipat-
ed, the choir decided not to go
because of the price.
The whole trip was going to cost
$270 which accounted for airfare,
hotel fees, bus transportation, which
included touring in Georgia,
Alabama, Knoxville, Tennessee,
Charlotte, Miami, Orlando, and
Dillian, Florida. The gospel choir
needed at least fifty people to go, but
only 40 people committed to going.
As a consequence, the gospel
choir has decided to tour every previ-
ous planned destination excluding
the Bahamas, which will now cost
$150.
One choir member, Amy Berridge
who had looked forward to touring
the Bahamas said, " I think we
should have gone, but I understand
that financially some people weren't
able to go
Still, the group maintains that
their sole purpose for traveling is to
uplift the Christian faith wherever
the mad might take them.

i Despite an outcry from the student body at large and a formal resolution proposing that it be
removed, the legislature of our Student Government Association (SGA) has voted against a
reversal of the bill passed last spring that allowed the SGA Executive Council to have their
tuition and books paid for out of student fees.
Wfe really aren't really shocked by this decision, however. Certainly, no one in their right mind
Would turn down a chance for free tuition and books. It's a great financial break, the best that
any student could hope for. No matter how much we criticize the SGA, we're all really envious
jof them. Aren't we?
Vfcll actually, no.
You see, they're not getting free tuition and books. Nothing in this world is free, especially
pot an education. We, the student body of ECU, are the ones paying for their education.
In fact, because the Executive Council doesn't pay tuition, they also don't pay student fees -
the very place where the money comes from to pay for their tuitions. This means that they're
not contributing even one red cent to their own education.
i Add to that the fact that they get to decide where a major portion of the student fees are used,
money that they don't even contribute to, and you can see why many students have a problem
with the current situation.
That is probably why the SGA decided to take an anonymous vote on the resolution to repeal
the free tuition bill. There was a motion made to take the vote by roll call, but it was objected
to. However, the objection itself wasn't challenged. Why not? Because those who want to keep
the bill alive don't want anyone to know about it.
Also, in a strange occurrence, 13 new day representatives were nominated and then accepted
into the voting body of the legislature right before the vote on the resolution. These 13 people
were not already-serving members of the SGA, but were instead new to the SGA, unfamiliar
with its voting practices and unfamiliar with the resolution on which they were allowed to vote.
We can't say how they voted. It was a secret; remember? But we can tell you that the final vote
Was 26 to 11 against the approval of the resolution. Who knows how close the vote would h-ve
been before these new people were added? ,
We wishthis current situation were otherwise. We wish that those in control of our money
jvould stawf up and identify themselves and take credit and criticism for what they have done.
Nc have reported on the SGA's unethical actions in the past and we will continue to do so as
ong as we believe the SGA is continuing to act in this manner.

Housekeepers fight racism, privatization
Everyone seems to have something to
say about racism.
Most people want to end aatism,
end all the hate, end the discrimina-
tion of people based on race. Will,
here is your chance. The housekeep-
ers at ECU are fighting against dis-
crimination and outright racism. For
too long the housekeepers here at
ECU have been complacent out of
fear of losing their jobs, but since the
housekeepers made a grievance
speaking out about Mr. Nichols' racist
remarks, they have been moved into
action. The housekeepers aren't ask-
ing for much; all they want is tolerable
working conditions (where racism is
not present and workers are treated
with respect), the dismissal of racist
supervisor Nicky Nichols, a living
wage ($9.50 in the U.S.)and a way for
their grievances to be considered, not
swept under the rug.
Unfortunately, they can't accom-
plish this alone. What they need is the
support of the student body because
we, as the student body, have the
power. Ws are the ones paving for
people like Nicky Nichols, and
Nichols is not the only one. It's our
money, and we have the right to speak
out against the use of it in ways which
we do not approve.
Many of the housekeepers have
reported being subjected to racist
slurs or racism in the form of unjusti-
fied pay cuts or dismissals.
- Another fear of the house-
keepers is the threat of privatization.
If the housekeeping work at ECU is
privatized, this could mean many of
die housekeepers would lose their
jobs or suffer pay cuts or hour cuts.
The Chancellor, as of now, is opposed
to privatization, but ultimately he is
the one who will decide if ECU
should privatize. The dining services
arc already privatized and are under
the control of Aramark, and we all
know what kind of quality that has
brought.
W: need to stand in support of the
housekeepers and their struggle
against oppression. Speak out; call the
Chancellor's office and tell him that
we as students do not support the
racism and discrimination directed
against the ECU housekeepers!
It's our right, and our responsibili-
ty-
opinion!

be seen everywhere. That's right
everyone. Tomorrow is Valentine's
Day
For couples, it's the most romantic
time of the year for celebrating your
love. For singles, it's the most depress-
ing day of the year on which you hope
all the flower delivery vans get a flat
tire.
But, does Valentine's Day really have
to be all that depressing for singles?
Of course not! There arc plenty of rea-
sons why you should be celebrating
that you are single.
The number one reason is money.
Think about all the money you'll be
saving on Valentine's Day. While
everyone else is rushing out to the
card store searching for the perfect
card, you can take your nroney to
Krispy Kreme and get a hot donut.
What about all the other people who
run out to Victoria's Secret to buy that
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
sexy lingerie that they feel stupid
wearing anyway? You can go buy a set
of flannel pajamas, sit at home with
your friends and make it a Blockbuster
night.
Another reason why being single on
Valentine's Day isn't ail that bad is
that you don't have to spend all day
worrying about your appearance. You
don't have to look, smell, or be nice for
anyone.
Of course, Valentine's Day is what
you make of it. Yes, you can sit at
home with that gallon of double fudge
ice cream and feel sorry for yourself.
Or, you can get motivated. Get up
off that couch. Gather all your other
single friends and hit the town. You
never know who you'll meet that
night. After all, it is the most romantic
night of the year.
So, go downtown, go bowling, or
even go see a movie. You might even
meet your destiny They could be the
person who hands your bowling shoes
to you. Or the one who checks your
i.d. at the dub. It might even be the
person who asks you if you want but-
ter on your popcorn. The possibilities
are endless.
Now, if you don't want to feel left
out of the gift giving on Valentine's
Day, here's what you do. Send yourself
some roses. Nobody will ever know
who they're really from. Or better yet,
find a buddy who is also single and
agree to leave a card on each other's
cars, so that everyone else thinks
you're special. That way, you'll have
something to look forward p on the
most dreaded day of the year for sin-
gles.
Now I'm not saying that it's better
to be single on Valentine's Day. But, if
you are, don't let this glorious day get
you down in the dumps. Make the
most of it. Go out there and find your-
self a die-hard romantic. Oh, and
make sure you don't try to run over
the flower delivery man; he could be
carrying the flowers that you sent to
yourself.
Ridley supports voter redistricting
To the Editor,
I believe 1 know why the incum-
bent Inez FVidlcy approves of the
proposed redistricting that will affect
her City Council seat. As of May of
this year, the voter registration data
from the Pitt County Board of
Elections indicated that there were
5,965 voters in City District 3. Of
these voters, over 2,900 were under
the age of 25. This fall, another.OOO
younger voters joined our county's
list of registered voters and the
majority of these were in City
District 3.
In the last year, the younger voters
and college students became a major-
ity of the registered voters in this dis-
trict. Now, Inez Fridley feels fine
about a plan to remove over 1,000
young voters from her district so that
she will never have to run hard again.
She can sit comfortably on her throne
and push her incumbency even fur-
ther beyond 12 years without fear of
the democratic process.
Inez Fridley will be able to com-
fortably write and promote ordi-
nances that affect the younger mem-
bers of our community without the
fear of us exercising our democratic
rights at the ballot box. If the City
Council allows this to happen to us, I
plan to oppose every member
whovotes for it. Let me be clear.
There are now over 11,000 registered
voters, under the age of 25 inside of
the city districts of Greenville. By
election day of this year, there will be
at least 1,000 more. Each member of
the Council who chooses to ratify
this change that hurts the younger
community can be assured that we
will contact every voter in your dis-
trict by phone and mail to inform
them about what you did to us before
election day. See you at the polls!

John Davis
STAFF WRITER
It's that time of year again,
when the greeting card indus-
try pumps out romance like
fake snow machines pump out
snow in ski resorts, when the
little red-headed girl will not
send Charlie Brown a card
again. The mailbox will trans-
form into a monster and growl
at us, or leer and laugh, making
fun one more time. All the
romantic movies will be rerun
on TNT, reminding us that,
once again, we have no sweet-
hearts on which to lavish our
affections.
There will be those few who
do have dates, and they will be
gracing restaurants and movie
theaters with their darling loves. Hundreds of engagement rings will be dropped
into hundreds of glasses of champagne. This is the day that red roses rue.
Luckily, love is a year-round thing. Love is the subject of many a poem and
many a song, and sometimes entire albums are dedicated to musical musings on
the subject. There are probably hundreds of records out there devoted to the
subject of devotion. Although I have no date this year, I do have the music for
such a date, should it ever be realized, and I more than happily share these trea-
sures with you now.
In no particular order, here are John Davis' Top Five Romantic Records (and
five runners-up): .
Peter Gabriel - Us. After his breakup with Sinead O'Connor, Gabriel focused
his creative energies on love, in
alt her many shades and colors.
Against a world-music-influ-
enced, art-pop backdrop,
Gabriel explores the beauty
and pain of relationship. From
humorous dance numbers like
"Kiss That Frog to the con-
tained passion of "Secret
World Gabriel faces his sub-
ject unflinchingly. "Blood of
Eden" is a haunting post-pop
ballad celebrating the union
that sex creates, while
"Washing of the Water" dives
into the tendencies towards co-
dependence in romance.
Gorgeously composed and exe-
cuted, Us is a soulful and pas-
sionate treatise.
U2 - Aduung Baby. U2 decided to reinvent themselves after Rattle ana Hum,
which neatly coincided with Edge's divorce from his wife of nearly ten years.
The result is the album that both transformed U2 and redirected the course of
rock n' roll in the 90s. The album, which was composed and recorded in Berlin,
approaches love from a musically disjointed perspective. The beauty of songs
like "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" is their messincss, the polluted sonic
landscape they develop. "One U2's radio smash, is an unflinching look at the
breakdown of love, while "Ultraviolet" and Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around
The World" ignite the spark of
possible reunion. This is U2's
best album to date.
Sting - Ten Summoner's Tales.
Sting finally married his lover of
more than ten years and to cele-
brate, he wrote a few songs.
Much more radio-friendly than
anything he's done since he left
the Police, this record presents
ten short stories, each picturing
a different aspect of romance.
Delightful and humorous (the

SENIOR WRITER
Editor's note: This is the second of a Im-
part series. Tuesday's edition had the beginning
of our interview with ECU abmrnus Kevin
Williamson.
Kevin Williamson had gone from
Oriental, North Carolina to making
deals with the big dogs of Hollywood.
After his experiences with KUSng
Mrs. Tingle, Williamson wanted to make
sure Stream would be made. Miramax
promised that the movie would be
made, and the movie finished filming
exactly one year - to the day - after it
was bought. Wes Craven, who
Williamson calls the "master of the
genre directed the film.
"He shot it just the way it was writ-
ten Williamson said. "My script is the
script that ended up on the screen
Williamson said he was very pleased
with the movie and gave credit to the
"high-caliber" performances of the
actors. Drew Barrymore, he said, gave a
performance worthy of Janet Leigh in
Psycho. He called Neve Campbell "the
new Jamie Lee Curtis
I told Williamson about a conversa-
tion with a friend who concluded that
he enjoyed Scream in part because he
didn't feel like an idiot when he left the
theater (as he often did after viewing
horror movies).
"I wanted it to be smart he said. "I
wanted the characters to have a brain in
their head, and I also wanted it to be
fun
Williamson said he avoided the big-
breasted bimbo syndrome that domi-
nates many slasher flicks. Letting
humor carry the plot from point A to
point B instead made the film smarter
and the characters more self-aware.
He also tried to make a statement
about cinema violence with Scream.
"When I was writing the script, Bob
Dole was screaming about Natural Born
Killers? Williamson explained. "I was
angered that he suggested violence was
caused by movies
"Movies can inspire they do not
make us go out and kill
Williamson experienced first hand
the effects of Dole's tirade. Despite
their promise beforehand, a northern
California school board refused to allow
Stream to be filmed at a local high
school because the board felt the movie
promoted violence. The school board
nearly got sued as a result of its actions.
Lawsuits aside, Williamson's main
focus is scaring the hell out of people.
Before we began the interview, he
questioned a faculty member of the
theatre department about air hoses,
more specifically, the use of air hoses for
other purposes than filling up tires or
blowing off surfaces - death by exces-
sive air pressure, possibly.
Still, he said, when he wntes some-
thing, he does not know if it will be
scary on film or not.
"For Scream, I put on scary sound-
tracks and tried to figure out what
scared me Williamson added.
For a scene in the film in which a
character is crushed to death in a garage
door while trying desperately to escape
through a pet door, Williamson consult-
ed his assistant and fellow product of
the ECU theatre department, Kathryn
Willis. The garage door thing had been
done before, he said, so he was looking
for a new twist. As soon as Willis told
him about the pet door her mother had
insisted be placed on her family's
garage door, he knew what to do.
When he sold the screenplay for
Kevin Williamson
Scream to
Miramax,
Williamson
included a
five-page
summary of
a sequel,
which
would fol-
low the lead
character
(played by
Neve
Campbell)
to college,
where she pledges a sorority and
encounters another killer. Miramax sug-
gested several universities where
could do research for the sequel, but
Williamson insisted on ECU.
"ECU has opened the doors to me
I couldn't have gone anywhere else he'
said.
He spent his time on campus
recently touring sorority and fraternity
houses and talking to the Panhellenic
Council. He also observed acting class-
es in the theatre department in prepa-
ration for his directing debut in The

Attic hosts The Veldt and Nil Lara
ANDY TURNER
SENIOR WRITER
I felt an old man at the Attic on
"Saturday night. I mean I felt Shi an old
man at the Attic on Saturday night.
The Vfeldt were on stage, playing
their buttocks off, but I just couldn't get
into it; it was not boredom really, main-
ly disinterest and confusion. Whatever
was the reason for these feelings, you
query? Because I would have eaten up
their funk-punk power rock thing a few
years back, but the thrill was gone
Saturday night.
The Triangle-based band undoubt-
edly put on an entertaining show for the
majority of those in attendance. Women
with big beer smiles were encouraged
by the band to shake and fling about on
stage. Males with bigger beer smiles
stared spit-eyed at the stage as the
shaking and flinging continued, until
finally the testosterone kicked in and
the males shook their heads furiously
and slammed into one another.
It sure was puny I would have cer-
tainly enjoyed the glorious display as a
freshmen, and, in fact, I did enjoy it
when Follow For Now and Johnny
Quest (I'll admit it, dammit) did the
same thing back when the New Deli
was still in existence.
Still, the Veldt's music seemed old,
like me. Energy and enthusiasm were
plentiful; however, the music seemed
like it belonged to the late '80s and
early 90s, the gtory days of similar
sounding bands such as Living Colour
and 24-7 Spyz. The band, who once had
a contract with Mercury Records and
appeared in the Salt-N-Fepa video
"The End isn't trendy (a good thing),
but they aren't incredibly original either.
You've heard it before, not necessarily
any better, but you've heard it over and
over again.
I found the opening act, Nil Lara,
unentertaining for reasons not relating
to age. Boring. Boring. Boring. Lara and
his band came off as sort of hellish cross
between Live and the Dave Matthews
Band wth a SpanishLatino music fla-
vor. Two-thirds of that hybrid disgusts
me. Have I ever mentioned that I like
Los Lobos and the Gypsy Kings? Roots
rockers, however, will more than likely
not share my appraisal of Lara. He could
probably be king of the root men if
Dave Matthews ever gets offed.
Not that I'm suggesting any offing.

ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Valentine's Day is one of those holidays
that people either embrace with senti-
mental pride, or cringe with nausea at
the mere mention of. If you are of the
latter group, then you won't appreciate
what I am about to present - my per-
sonal picks for the best romantic films
available on video.
Love takes on many forms, therefore
the following list is an attempt to
appease ail those eclectic romantics out
there.
Traditional love - Many may scratch
their heads at this choice, but I have
always considered It's a Wonderful Life to
be an extremely romantic film. Jimmy
Stewart and Donna Reed use their clas-
sic star power to wonderful effect and
make Frank Capra's fairy tale timeless.
Classy love - British actress Emma
Thompson and Chinese director Ang
Lee are both highly respected for pro-
ducing feature films with class, and
their collaboration on Jane Austen's
Sense aid SensMSty is no exception. This
period piece ideally illustrates how class
structures can't always conquer true
love.
Funny love - W: have a tie! I have to
include Rob Reiner's Men Harry Met
Salty, if for no other reason than the fact
that it features Meg Ryan faking an
intense orgasm in a restaurant.
However, I can't praise Reiner's film
without mentioning the film that obvi-
ously inspired it: wfaody Allen's Annie
Hall. Allen almost redefined the very
notion of love with this hilarious, neu-
rotic story of a metropolitan couple.
These two movies would make a great
double feature for most any couple.
Tough love - While Peter War's film
Witness is typically cited as a detective
drama, it is also an exemplary romance.
The detective plot, involving a young
Amish boy (Lukas Haas) who witnesses
a murder, is secondary to the love
between the detective (Harrison Ford)
and the boy's mother (Kelly McGillis).
Ford and McGillis, in a hypnotizing
scene, share one of the most passionate
kisses ever captured on film.
Twisted love - V&tching Nicolas
Cage drink himself to death in Mike
Figgis' Leaving Las Vegas is not as unnerv-
ing as watching Elisabeth Shuc slowly
fall in love with him. This romance
between a dying alcoholic and a prosti-
tute may not suit everyone's taste, but
it is one love story that definitely
impacts on the viewer.
Violent love - When Quentin
Tarantino (best known for writing and
directing the ulira-violent films
Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Return) and
Tony Scott (the director of Top Gun and
The Last Boy Scout) take on the theme of
love, the resulting product can only be
True Romance. Don't let the title fool
Elizabeth Shue and Nicolas Cage win our coveted
Twisted Love award for Leaving las togas.

you, though. This film features a young
couple (Christian Slater and Patricia
Arquette) who kill a drug dealer and
race to California to sell a large supply of
cocaine they've stolen. This is not the
kind of love that Hallmark promotes on
its Valentine's Day cards.
Tender love - If you're in the mood
for an innocent, coming-of-age, mod-
em-day classic, then took no further
than Sixteen Candles. Motty Ringwald
was every teenage boy's dream girl
when this film first came out, am
Anthony Michael Hall was actualfi
funny. The story, involving a young girl'
awkward crush on the popular higl
school jock, paints an ideal dream corrM
true that can only happen in thi
movies.

Surf your way to romance
Shakespeare was given a jolt of new energy last year when Leonardo
DiCaprio and Claire Danes took on the romantic leads in William
Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. While this film adaptation of the play is not
Shakespeare, it still proves to be an effective exercise in interpretation.
With its contemporary setting and hip sense of fashion, this Romeo & Juliet
illustrates how there is more than one way to brush up your Shakespeare.
Any loving couple looking for something to do on Valentine's Day should
take advantage of this worthwhile movie. It's not exactly a happy love
story, but it's still a love story.

Even if you tend to pull failing grades
when it comes to the school of love,
there's no reason to be lonely this
Valentine's Day.
Several websites offer lessons in the
art of romance. After a few hours of
studying these sites' secrets, you can
deliver your sweetheart a love poem
Cyrano would envy - or even the stars
in the sky.
For example, the Love and Romance
Home Pag! (www.electpress.comlove-
andromance) guarantees to "help you
find the love of your life, then keep the
fires of love burning bright through the
years
According to the site, the way to
catch your sweetie's attention, of
course, is by sending a mushy love let-
ter. In case the only rhyme you've com-
mitted to memory is an off-color limer-
ick, the site offers a few romantic vers-
es that arc sure to allure. Here's an
example: "Your silken hair can
entrance; your stunning smile can hyp-
notize; and both together do enhance
the beauty of your lovely eyes
So it's not exactly Shakespeare. But
if you'd like to impress your intended
with a few words from the great bard
and master lovebird, check out
VaJentwe.com (www.valentine.com).
For a fee, cards with Shakespeare's
work ("When love speaks, the voice of
all the gods makes heaven drowsy with
the harmony") or that of other roman-
tic poets can be sent to loved ones. And
for an extra special valentine, not to
mention an extra $2, the card can be
postmarked from Loveland, Colo. -

with glee to 1,001 Ways to Be Romantic
(www.godek.com). The site's filled
with inexpensive ideas for aphrodisiacs

Historians can learn more about the
origins of Valentine's Day, or
"Lupcrcalia" as ancient Roman wolf-
haters called it, on the site Amoreonthe
Net (www.holidays.netamore). There's
also a short biography of Cupid.
Those who still need to sweeten
their social skills might enjoy
Sugarplums (www.w2.comvalentines.

your kissabiliry") is set against a pink
background of puckering lips.
Sugarplums claims to celebrate "all that
is romantic" and includes a lot of sen-
suous recipes.
Also, there are tips on which flowers
to send. For instance, the gift of a cac-
tus means "My heart burns with love
for you whereas a geranium simply
says, "You are my true friend
Sugarplums even has the answer to
the burning question: what does a
rose's color mean? (White is "inno-

STAFF WRITF.R
People don't read poetry anymore and I blame the academia,
the hundreds of professors and high school teachers who real-
ly do teach poetry like the text in Dead Poet's Society - graph-
ing the slope of meaning against the curve of language or
something egg-headed liKe that.
While those academics continue to spend more time get-
ting their own work published than on making poetry excit-
ing to their students, they have removed themselves from
the flow of culture. Little do they realize that poetry has
packed up shop and moved into the arena of popular music,
with such writing geniuses as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen,
Raul Simon, Michael Stipe, Bono, Sting, Q-tip, Nas and
Tricky. In a literate culture, poetry has become the property
of the common man.
Of course, your professor won't admit that to you. That's
why the poets of the cafe on East Third Street in New York
City have released an anthology of their own work, AJoud,
Voices from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe - to pull poetry down from
the ivory tower and return it to people it was written for us.
As editor Bob Holrnan writes in the intro to the anthology:
This book dares to state the obvious - RAP IS POETRY -
and its spoken essence is central to the popularization of
poetry Poetry is no longer an exhibit in a dust museum.
Poetry is alive: poetry is allowed
The Nuyorican Poets Cafe is the gathering place fix (you
guessed it) those who would call themselves Nuyoricans,
once only a word describing those New Yorkers of Puerto
Rican descent, now expanded to include any "denizen of the
Nuyorican Poets Cafe The Nuyoricans consider them-
selves and all poets "stateless people and if this is true,
then Aloud is their Declaration of Independence and
Constitution rolled up into one.
The anthology moves alphabetically. The styles repre-
sented range from classic modernism (Adriennc Su's
"Address") to Hispanic hip-hop (Christian Hayc's "Sendin
out a RB), to poetry of race and politics (Bob Hoiman's
"1990") to language-poetry, combining Spanish and English
(Jose Montoya's "El Sol Y 'L Rovato Loco") to pure rhythmic
performance poetry (Emily XYZ's brilliant two-voice poem
"Slot Machine").
The poems are flavored by pop culture, classical educa-
tions, Hispanic and ghetto traditions, TV ads, popular music,
and the beauty of sound and meaning meshed together.
Topics range from romantic to political, from tributes to pure

homemade hardware store beer bong
is used during a party scene in the
movie. The actors had to be instructed
on proper funnel techniques.
"Wes Craven didn't even know
what a beer bong was Williamson
explained. "I told him, 'You didn't go
to ECU
It should be no surprise that
Williamson would be proficient in
making a beer bong as his film credits
include playing "the drunk American
guy" in the 1994 movie Dirty Money.
The success of Scream has made
Williamson a man very much in
demand in Hollywood. In addition to
The Rtcuity, which he describes as The
Breakfast Club meets Invasion of the Body
Snatchers, and the Scream sequel, due
out in the summer of 1998, Williamson
is working on the screen adaptation of
the suspense thriller novel, Know
What You Did Last Summer.

by Williamson, will soon air on the WB

chased the option on another
Williamson TV show idea, Parnlko, an
autobiographical account of a southern
family of fisherman set in North
Carolina's own Pamlico County.
Quite simply, it's been a hell of a
good year for Williamson. Success,
however, has yet to spoil Williamson;
he is easy-going and enthusiastic about
�his work. His mom, who was along for
the interview, was obviously proud of
her son, asking me who I thought the
killer was in the movie. I told her I
thought it was the dad. "That's what
everyone always says she said, laugh-
ing and smiling.
'All of this has happened in the last
year, really just in the last six months
Williamson concluded. It's an
overnight, 10 year success story. I'm
glad it only took 10 years.

from The Canterbury Tales.), Sting
pokes fun at and admires country bal-
lads in "Love is Stronger Than
Justice imagines the frustrations of
celibate priests in the "St. Augustine
in Hell and bemoans the superiority
of the "dumb jock" in "Seven Days
More serious numbers express his
heart, such as "Shape of My Heart"
and "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You
Sting's jazzy-rock style fits the sub-
ject matter perfectly.
Lyle Lovett - Love Everybody.
Lyle got married, too. Remember the
quick courtship with actress Julia
Roberts? In a big-band mesh of coun-
try and jazz, Lovett enjoys the spill-
over of love into the rest of life. Being
in love makes him love everybody, as -
he demonstrates on the title track.
Playfully acknowledging his "ugly
duckling" status, he offers numbers
like "Skinny Legs" and "Creeps Like
Me Most of the time, he just glows
with adoration though, as in "Ain't It
Somethin "Penguins and "Moork,

plistic, but not simple, and the music
is perfect for spring driving.

Based on the Psalm "The Lord is near
to the broken hearted Gold
explores what singercomposer Jason
Martin called beirg "bummed out
over girls Gold'a lo-fi rock gone hi-fi,
drawing on the recording techniques
and styles of the early 70's. Like a
minimalist Billy Corgan or a cross
between Hendrix and Brian Wilson,
Martin crafts subtle, moving portraits
of unrequited love. The emotion of
the songs is in the stark guitar solos
and the soulful arrangements. The
lyrics serve only as a focus for the
strong emotion of Martin's guitar.
"Dual Overhead Cam" is a five-
minute opus with only one line:
' "She's got a hold on me and she bet-
ter not wait too long One of the best
undiscovered treasures in recent rock
n' roll.
The Runners-Up:
John Coltrane - Lush Life. A synco-
pated saxophone in love. What more
could you want?
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds. Brian
Wilson's magnum opus, a soulful,
beautiful tapestry of romance and the
artistic peak of "surf rock
Paul Simon - Graceland. Simon's
Afro-pop memoir to his ex-wife, as
well as his world music map back into
the world of dating.
Billie Holliday - Greatest Hits.
Although not planned this way. Lady

Tennis teams looking for an
ace of a season
Rodman has friendlier encounter with cameraman
CHICAGO (AP) - Dennis Rodman ran into a cameraman - again - and
responded with a smile and a tap instead of a kick. He also avoided a
confrontation with a former head-butt victim.
He battled Anthonv Mason, grabbed 14 rebounds and helped the
Chicago Bulls beat the Charlotte Hornets 103-100 Tuesday night, a vic-
tory that was delivered bv Michael Jordan's 3-pointer at the buzzer.
As he walked off the court, Jordan hugged Rodman and said,
"Welcome back
Rodman's return from an 11-game NBA suspension - for kicking a
cameraman in Minnesota on Jan. 15 - couldn't have been much better
"He kept his composure said Jordan, who scored 43 points in the
Bulls' 15th consecutive home victory. "He did just the opposite of what
he did last time. He learned his lesson
With 559 to play, Rodman fouled Mason and stumbled out of bounds,
where he tripped over WGN-TV cameraman Tommy Skinner. Rodman
smiled, patted Skinner playfully on the chest and apologized into the
cumcrs
"I just said. Are you all right? Are you all right? Please tell me you re
all right u Rodman said.
"Are you happy, David Stern?"
Pa's day finally comes at Westminster
NEW YORK (AP) - Family business kept Pa away from the Westminster
Kennel Club Show last year.
This year, the standard schnauzer with the dignified gray moustache
finally got his chance. He made the most of it, winning the best in show
award Tuesday at the nation's most prestigious dog competition.
Pa - Ch. Parsifal Di Casa Netzer in the show ring - was the pick of the
working group, one of hundreds of titles he has won as the nation's top
standard schnauzer for the past three years.
He sat out last year's Westminster because the best-in-show judge
was Roy Holloway, father of his handler and father-in-law of one of his
owners. ,
When the victory was announced, Rita Holloway, the co-owner and
wife of Holloway's son Douglas, burst into sobs on the sidelines. "Give
me a Kleenex or something she said as friends threw their arms around
her. A laughing Roy Holloway shook hands all around as the new cham-
pion, nearly as silver as his trophy, posed for pictures.
Belle gives lawsuit deposition; discusses gambling
CLEVELAND (AP) - Albert Belle admitted in a deposition he recently
lost as much as $40,000 gambling on pro football and college basketball
games, a lawyer who questioned him said today.
Belle, who made a free-agent move to the Chicago White Sox from
the Cleveland Indians last fall, made the statement under oath Tuesday
while answering questions for a deposition in a lawsuit filed over a con-
frontation he had with Halloween pranksters, attorney Richard Lillie
Lillie represents a teen-age boy whose guardian, Sandra Abdul-
Razzaaq of Cleveland Heights, claims Belle injured the boy when chas-
ing him in his truck on Oct. 31, 1995. The suit seeks $300,000 in dam-
ages. � . c
The request for damages was reduced from an original amount ot
$850,000, said Belle's attorney, Jose Feliciano.
Feliciano would not comment on Belle's testimony Tuesday and did
not return a call seeking comment today.
He told The Plain Dealer that Belle, "like many other players, does
bet on games outside his own sport Feliciano said. He characterized
the matter as "silly and petty" and "no big deal
Coach to successor: Get a long-term contract
EVANSTON, III. (AP) - Outgoing Northwestern basketball coach Ricky
Byrdsong says that unless his successor gets more support from the
administration and a long-term contract, the program will continue to
"I really feel it is and can be a good job said Byrdsong, who spoke
publicly Tuesday for the first time since being fired the previous day by
athletic director Rick Taylor.
"But I stand firm on the fact that the coach-who inherits this job will
find himself in the exact same state that I was. He can blame it on me.
He can say it was a domino that started before he got here and he d be
right. And he won't spin out of it unless they give him a long time. This
administration is going to have to step to the plate
In his first season, 1993-94, Byrdsong took the Wildcats to the Nl 1.
But that team was full of uppcrclassmen. After that, he said, the cup-
board was bare.
"There were not bad players after them, there were no players,
Byrdsong said. "And with our academic standards, you can't go to the
junior-college ranks. We had to start this program over from scratch
Johnson's high school gym named after him
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - His No. 32 has been retired at Michigan State's
Breslin Center and at the Great Western Forum in Los Angeles.
Magic Johnson's high school went a step further Tuesday night, nam-
ing the school's gymnasium after the former Los Angeles Lakers guard.
The ceremony was held at halftime of Iansing Everett's game against
Jackson.
"Every game here was special he said. "When you came to the gym,
if you didn't get here by the junior varsity game, you didn't get a seat
The school unveiled a banner bearing Johnson's No. 32 jersey hang-
ing from one corner of the gymnasium. The school also installed a plaque
in the gym hall and gave Johnson a plaque of his own.
Johnson said his favorite memory was winning the state champi-
onship for Everett in 1977 and returning to Lansing "with everyone
blowing their horns. Everyone on the south side was going crazy"

STAFF WRITER
As a new spring season of tennis rolls
around again at ECU, the expecta-
tions are high. The men's team, who
look to improve on last year's fifth
place conference finish, hope to
turn the corner and make their pres-
ence felt in the C. Meanwhile,
the women hope to continue their
steady improvement, which pro-
duced a sixth place finish in confer-
ence play last year.
The men's team is lead by Head
Coach Bill Moore, who, in his ninth
season, has changed the course of
the program.
"When I got here Moore said,
"it was a pretty bad program. But we
are definitely getting better; we are
going in a positive direction
One quality that has made it eas-
ier to succeed has been the rather
easy friendship between Moore and
his plavers.
"We really like him Derek Slate
said. "He helps us out mentally. He
is a laid back guy, but he likes to
win
Another reason for Moore's suc-
cess has been his ability to recruit
top players in recent years, especial-
ly his ability to recruit top foreign
plavers, who compose half of the
team's eight man roster. Starter
Roope Kalajo and Daniel Prevelic of
Sweden, Sreven Siebenbrunner of
Austria and returning starter Nils
Alomar of Spain have all helped to
contribute to the team this year.
Brett Rowley, Jason Freeman and
starters Kenny Kirby and Wes
Kintner round out this young and
talented squad.
"You don't have to have foreign
plavers to win, but you have to have
a strong tradition to attract the real-
ly good American players Kirby
said.
So far this spring, the guys have
been playing well, a reflection of
their hard work during the individ-
ual tournament season of the fall.
"The fall season went really
good. It is mainly to get everybody's
game ready Slate said. "So far in
the Spring season, we have played
our best stuff ever
The team is 3-3 overall and have
notched wins over Georgetown,
College of Charleston and confer-
ence rival James Madison. While
suffering setbacks to Wake Forest.
South Carolina and East Tennessee
State.
"We have beaten the universities
that we are supposed to beat
Prevalic said.
This weekend, the team travels
to Charlotte to do battle with
Davidson, UNC-Asheville and
Pfeiffer.
"We are a pretty young team this
year, so we are building up the
team Siebenbrunner said. "Next
year we will be even better
Those same sentiments ring true
for the women's team, led by coach
Jamie Holt. 24. While it may be only-
he his first year on the job, he has
the experience to back it up. Holt
plaved for and was an assistant to
the men's team. And just like
Moore, the players really like him.
"He is young and nice Anne-
Birgette Svae said. "He is relaxed.
He wants to accomplish a lot and
puts a lot of effort in to the team. So
far, he is doing a pretty good job
Just like their male counterparts,
the women's team plays a few for-
eign players. Mona Eek and Svae
both hail from Norway. The rest of
this deep and talented team include
Catherine Morgan, Jena McDonald,
Corissa Cheek and team captains
Rachel Cohen and Hollyn Gordon.
While these talented players help
the cause by beating other schools,
thev also heip to motivate their own
teammates to greatness.
"They motivate me a lot Cheek
said. "I like to watch their form a
lot
The women have yet to play a
match this spring, but did well in
the fall. They hope, however, to get
a ranking in the region. To do this
they will have to play to the best of
their ability, however, because the
CAA tournament and conference
games are played in the spring.
Their first test of the season will be
on Feb. 21, when they travel to
Davidson.
"We have a good chance at beat-
ing Davidson Svae said. "We have a
good team and it is going to be a
good match
The women have only one senior,
Gordon, so this young and talented
group with some experience, should
be even better next year. The team
feels that it is heading in the right
direction.
"We are doing pretty good Svae
said. "We have a good conditioning
program and our coach is young but
experienced. We are a better team
now than last spring
The next few seasons will be the
testimony to these two team's tal-
ent and determination. If they both
continue to play better and come
together as teams, their goals should
be within reach.

SENIOR WRITF.R
It's about pride; it's about determina-
tion, and most importantly, it's about
sticking together and fighting until
the end.
The ECU men's swim team fin-
ished the 1996-97 season with the
highest overall winning percentage in
its history. Iead by team captains
Lee Hutchens and Alex Vitier, the
men are heading into the CAA con-
ference championship next week
with a 10-1 record, a lot of confidence
and a winning attitude.
Last year, the team ended their
season with an overall record of 7-3
and a fifth place finish at the confer-
ence championships.
According to Dave Rountree, a
junior from Raleigh, this season's suc-
cess has been the result of a truly
united and dedicated team.
"Last year, it seemed like every-
one on the team was only out for their
own personal win Rountree said.
"This year, everyone has been so sup-
portive of the team as a whole
Rountree said that being part of a
team that has offered him so much
encouragement has helped him
improve tremendously.
"Everyone on our team really
respects one another Rountree said.
"We have all encouraged each other
to push ourselves hard not only in
meets but also at practices, and that
is why we have lx:cn so successful
Teammate Vitier agrees that team
unitv has been what set this season
aside from the rest.
"Everyone gave 100 percent all of
the time for the sake of the team.
That's why we are here right now
Vitier said.
Among the most challenging
teams the men faced this year were
Old Dominion and UNC
Wilmington. The Pirates edged out
Old Dominion and claimed what is
considered by most to be the most
rewarding and exciting win of the sea-
son. The match-up against UNCVV
was the only loss the men turned in
for the year.
According to Hutchens. the most
memorable moment of the season
was when the team came out on top
in the meet against ODl As he said,
the victory was won "the right way
"The people who sw am in the Old
Dominion meet were the people who
wanted it the most Hutchens said.
"Everyone was giving it there all, and
the whole team really concentrated
on staying focused
Hutchens said that this season
was by far the most unbelievable of
any in his experiences as a swimmer.
In his opinion, it was the effort put in
by the coaches that made the team
really stand out and end the season
with such an outstanding record.
"Our coaches are always there for
us, pushing us hard to keep going and
stav focused Hutchens said.
With the conference champi-
onship only days away, the men are
concentrating mostly on resting and
keeping focused for the work that is
yet to be done. Keeping up the ener-
gy level in the water seems to be the
primarv goal of each member of the
team.
According to Rountree, the high-
light of the season will be seen at con-
ference. Since the entire season is
built around how successful the team
will be in the championship, most of
the men are finding it hard to con-
centrate on anything but the meet.
"We have a legitimate shot to
come away from this meet as confer-
ence champions Rountree said.
"Everyone swims their fastest at
CAA, so it is likely that some of our
current records will be broken
The men are certain this season's
success will benefit ECU's sw im pro-
gram in the years to come. By making
such a strong showing at the meets
this year, an extremely positive state-
ment has been made about what goes
on in the water in Pirate territory.
"The program has nowhere to go
but up from here Hutchens said.
"The tetter we do, the better our
recruits will be. As we continue to
improve and more people begin to
notice our talent, more athletes are
going to be interested in coming to
ECU and being a part of the team
Vitier expects that a lot of people
will be surprised to see the men from
ECU make such a competitive show-
ing at conference because not many
people are aware of the drastic turn-
around this team has made in terms
of bringing in wins.
It is predicted that the toughest
team to beat at the conference cham-
pionship will be JMU. The ultimate
goal of the team is to come away as
number one. but no matter what hap-
pens at (AV these men are winners.
The VCU Rams handed ECU a 66-
73 overtime loss last night in Minges.
The Pirates jumped out quickly
and held a six point advantage, 10-4
after two made free throws by Tom
Parham. That would be the biggest
lead the Pirates would have in the
first half.
At the half, ECU led 32-29, as
Raphael Edwards led the way with 11
points, followed by Othello Meadows
with seven.
Jonathan Kerner left mid-way
through the first with a left hand
injury and didn't return, and senior
starter Tim Basham was out the
entire game with the flu.
The second half proved to be
crazy. Questionable calls had the
coaches and fans in a furry. At the
7:39 mark ECU was down one, 52-
53. At that point Meadows nailed a
trey and on the next possession
Edwards hit a lav up for the 57-53
lead.
VCU battled back and tied the
game up at 60 apiece and a five
minute overtime was in effect.
VCU scored the first seven points
before ECU took a timeout. With
2:09 left in OT, Edwards fouled out
with 16 points.
Parham was the onlv Pirate to
score in OT and had six points. ECU
now falls to 7-5 in the CAA and is tied
with JMU, while VCU improves to 8-
5 and is tied with UNC-VV for the top
spot in the conference.
Meadows had 17 points for the
game, while Parham had 12. and
Morns (irooms finished with 10.

OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -
Figure skater Tonya Harding says
she was abducted outside her
home vesterday and escaped with-
out serious injuries when she
drove her pickup truck into a tree
and fled. . �
"This guv just hijacked her,
said Damon Coates, a spokesman
for the Clackamas County sheriff s
office. . ,�
Harding said a "bushy haired
man abducted her early today out-
side her Oak Grove home and
forced her to drive him to Mulino,
about 30 minutes away.
She said the assailant might
have pressed a knife against her
cheek, but she didn't get a good
enough look to know if he carried a
weapon.
Coates said Harding received
minor injuries when her assailant
slapped her, but she was not sexu-
ally assaulted.
The skater said she escaped by
driving her pickup into a tree along
a country road, then running into
the woods. She hid in the brush
and, when her assailant ran past,
ran back to her truck and drove
into town.
Harding's agent, David Hans
Schmidt, said from Phoenix that
she was up most of the night
assisting investigators.
"Tonya's resting safely, tie
said. . . . ,
Schmidt said the incident
would not affect plans for Harding
to begin a comeback with a three-
minute skating exhibition Feb. ZZ
in Reno, Nev.
Coates said Harding used her
cell phone to call her boyfriend
when she got back into Oregon
City, and one of the two called
911 There was no indication the
assailant realized the figure
skater's identity, Coates said.
The incident began about 1
a.m. when Harding went outside
to get cigarettes out of her truck,
Coates said. He said Harding told
investigators that she encountered
a man "fooling around" under the
hood of another vehicle on her
property.
Harding told police the man
forced her into her pickup and
made her drive from her Oak
Grove neighborhood in suburban
southeast Portland out Oregon Z13

plunged into confusion in rhe final
seconds because of a timekeeping
dispute.
"It's too had - it's a ven. difficult
loss tor them Krzyzewski said
after Tuesday's jjame. "I don'r want
to win by any shenanigans. Wins
are not that important
Virginia coach Jeff Jones said his
plavers were robbed of an upset.
"They found a ua against a
very good Duke team to win. and
they took it away from them
Jones said. "Basically, the officials
blamed the clock operators
Duke's Steve Wojciechou ski.
who hit two free throws with sev-
enth-tenths of a second left to win
the game for the No. 6 Blue Devils,
said there was nothing to apologie
for.
"A win is a win: they don't put
any asterisks by it
The score was tied at 60 when
Virginia's Norman Nolan was
fouled with five seconds remain-
ing. He missed the first free throw,
then made the second for a one-
point lead.
The horn then blew as Virginia's
Willie Dersch tried to check into
the lineup, but the referees didn't
hear it over the noise of the crowd
and didn't stop play.
Wojciechowski took an
inbounds pass and. with the clock
not yet running, drove the length
of the court.
Asked whether he noticed that
Virginia's defense was in disarray
Wojciechowski said. "I saw a bunch
of guys at the table (where players
check in) and I kind of waved at
them. I got to the basket and luck-
ily I got fouled
The clock showed 2.2 seconds.
After a lengthy discussion and
reviewing television replays, the
referees reset the clock to seventh-
tenths of' a second and
Wojciechowski made both foul
shots while agitated Cavalier fans
screamed.
"I didn't hear a thin when I
was at the line Wojciechowski
said. "Basically, I said. I've done
this a million times. This isn't am
different
Ricky Price and Koshown
McCleod each had 13 points for
Duke (20-5, 9-3 Atlantic Coast
Conference), which has won five in
a row and nine of 10.
Nolan had 16 points for Virginia
(15-9, 5-7), which came in with a
10-game winning streak at home,
the longest in rhe(I.
Virginia, which led most of the
game, was trving to avenge a 19-
point loss to I)ukc earlier this sea-
son.
Courtney Alexander missed a 3-
pointer with 33 seconds left that
would have put Virginia ahead by
four. Then Wojciechowski also
missed ,i 3-pointer with 1 1 seconds
remaining before redeeming him-
self.
Asked why Dersch was not
allowed in the game after Nolans
free throw, referee Rick Hartell
said. "We didn't see a sub there;
we didn't hear a horn, fter the
foul was called on the Virginia pla-
er. the timer told us the clock was
r.irred late.
The officials then went to the
television monitor, replayed the
play twite and timed it with a stop
Jones disputed the official ver-
sion, lie said his plavers were con-
fused and weren't readv to play
defense, lie also said Hartell
tried to wave Dersch in after the
plaver told the referee rhar he was
going in for Nolan.
Jones protested that Dersch
should have been allowed in and
Duke should have the ball under
the basket with 5 seconds left.
"It's a shame the way the game
ended Jones said. "It s hard to
find anything to say to them that
justifies what happened
Krzyzewski said he feels fortu-
nate the Blue Devils won. but
added that "we made a winning
play He said he tried to warn
Jones and the referees that if they
reviewed the tape. "Virginia was
going to get messed over" because
it the clock not starting.
Despite the loss. Virginia led
31-25 at the half and by as many as
seven in the second half. The
('avalicrs also out-rebounded Duke
45-36 and outshot the Blue Devils
43.6 percent to 35 percent.
"The game's over, and we've
got to start getting readv for
Clemson (Saturday), as painful as
it is Jones said.

The 'Worm' returns to Windy City
CHICAGO (AP) - Dennis
Rodman's momentum carried him
past the baseline, where he stum-
bled over a television cameraman.
Yes, a cameraman. Again. What
would Rodman do this time?
His mind flashed back to Jan. 15,
the last game he had played for the
Chicago Bulls. On that chilly
Minnesota night, he made the
wrong choice, kicking cameraman
Eugene Amos after falling out of
bounds.
That resulted in an 11-game sus-
pension from NBA commissioner
David Stem and a $200,000 out-of-
court settlement with Amos. It also
drew criticism from teammates
Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen,
from many former basketball stars
and from President Clinton.
So what would Rodman do when
faced with an almost identical situa-
tion Tuesday night, in his first game
back from the second-longest sus-
pension in NBA history?
The right thing.
He smiled, gentry tapped the
chest of WGN-TV cameraman
Tommy Skinner and walked away.
And the Bulls went on to beat the
Charlotte Hornets 103-100 on
Jordan's 3-pointer at the buzzer.
"It would have been a classic if I
kissed him said Rodman, an occa-
sional cross-dresser. "But he proba-
bly would have sued me for slobber-
ing all over him
Actually, Rodman admitted his
first thought was to avoid trouble, a
curious thought for someone who
has been suspended three times in
the last 11 months.
"I just said, Are you all right? Are
you all right? Please tell me you're all
right Rodman said.
And, of course, he couldn't wait
to take a dig at the commissioner:
"Are you happy, David Stem?"
Stem probably was happy, but no
happier than Rodman's teammates,
who want the tattooed forward to
help them repeat as champions.
Jordan and Pippen had grown
increasingly dismayed about
Rodman. Jordan says he and Rodman
have "no relationship and Pippen
says Rodman "doesn't give a damn
about most things
Both applauded Rodman's
demeanor Tuesday - not to mention
his 14 rebounds and body-to-body
defense on Charlotte standout
Anthony Mason. Jordan even
hugged Rodman and said, "Welcome
back after hitting the winning
shot.
Nevertheless, Rodman wasn't
happy about the recent rebukes.
"If you don't want to stick behind
me, don't say nothing about me at
all the league's top rebounder said.
"My goal is just to win a champi-
onship. I guess if I do that, people
are going to love me again. If I do
something wrong, people are going
to hate me
Rodman also took a shot at those
among the 50 all-time NBA greats
who used last weekend's All-Star
festivities to give Rodman's act a
thumbs-down.
"A few of those guys said, 'Kick
his butt out he said. "They're just
bitter because their time is past
Rodman's final dig on the night of
his triumphant return was reserved
for his father. Philander, who
watched the game after having not
seen his son for three decades.

The East Carolinian
Skater
continued trom page 14
to the Mulino area south of Oregon
City.
When he ordered her to turn
down a country lane in the Mulino
area, Harding said she decided to
drive into a roadside tree in hopes
of diverting her assailant's atten-
tion and escaping.
She said the man ran after her
into the woods but ran past as she
hid, enabling her to run back to her
pickup and escape. Coates said
investigators retracing Harding's
route found the tree with marks on
it where it was hit by the bumper
of her truck.
A former U.S. national figure
skating champion and former
Olympian, Harding was convicted
of criminal charges for helping
cover up the January 1994 attack
on her Olympic rival, Nancy
Kerrigan. She is banned from ama-
teur competition by the U.S.
Figure Skating Association.
The incident is the latest of a
number of run-ins in which
Harding has sought the assistance
of police:
-While fighting to maintain her
spot on the 1994 U.S. Olympic
team, Harding reported to
Beaverton police that she was
assaulted late at night while walk-
ing through a park from her truck
to the suburban apartment where
she was staying.
-In May 1995, Harding called
Clackamas County authorities from
her cell phone to report she was
tailing a car driven by a man she
said had been stalking her. Police
said they were investigating
whether the car was the same one
that damaged a planter in front of
Harding's house.
-In April 1996, Harding got a
restraining order against her
estranged second husband, saying
he'd threatened her and kicked in
her bathroom door after she locked
herself inside.
