There are only a few days left until the two
most coveted words in a college student's life:
Spring Break This is a time for students to
relieve the stress of school and replenish
themselves tor the rest of the semester.
The office of Health Promotion and Well-
Being (HPWR)and Campus Ministries have
joined together to encourage students to have
a safe Spring Break.
"What we want to do is encourage people
to have a safe Spring Break and increase
awareness said Director of HPWB Donna
For the past two weeks the organizations
have published tips in TEC which remind
students that although this is a time to relax
there are safety practices to remember.
"Spring Break is a very important time
said Reverend I )an Earnhardt, campus minis-
ter for the Wesley Foundation and coordinator
for Campus Ministries. "Students need to
step away and realize they can get through
the rest of the semester. I think it is an impor-
Beginning Wednesday the first 100 stu-
dents who bring three tips to the HPWB have
received a "Safe Spring Break" packet. Items
in the packet range from sunscreen and con-
doms to reminders about weanng seatbelts
and safe highway driving.
Also in the packet are two pledges for stu-
dents to sign and commit to. One is a SADD
contract and the other is a Spring Break
pledge for people to promise not to drink and
drive, let friends drink and drive, or ride with
someone who has been and to watch out for
If students bring the signed pledges back
to HPWB after Spring Break, the office will
submit their cards for a drawing for a
Plymouth Neon or a Jeep Wrangler. This
event is nationally sponsored by BACCHI S
and GAMMA which are organizations that
promote drunk driving awareness.
On Fridav any remaining packages will be
distributed from a table outside of the Wright
Place from 10:30 a.m. to 11:36 a.m.
This is the first year KOI' has sponsored
an event like this.

continue it on a larger scale next vear Wilsh

used for judging were student selectivity faculty
resources, reputation, research activity and prima-
ry care rate.
Student selectivity combined the academic
components of the class entering each school in
the fall of 1996. The undergraduate grade point
average, average score on the Medical (lollcge
Admission Test (MCAT) and proportion of appli-
cants accepted comprised this category.
The faculty resources was the ratio of the med-
ical school full-time science and clinical faculty to
The reputation category was the product of two
surveys. One survey was completed by medical
school deans and senior faculty members who
rated the reputations of the medical schools and
another survey done by the directors of intern-res-
idencv programs who were asked to choose either
the best 25 medical or primarv care schools.
The research activity was based on the total
amount of money awarded in research grants to the
medical school and its affiliated hospitals last year
The primary care rate used was the average per-
cent of doctors who went into the primary care res-
idencies from 1994 to 1996.
In addition to these rankings a reputations sur-
vey was used to determine the top five medical
schools in eight medical specialties. The specialty
areas ranked were AIDS research, drug and alcohol
abuse, family medicine, geriatrics, internal medi-
cine, pediatrics, rural and women's health.
This is the third year EOF has been ranked in
this report and last year the primary care division
"Wc are proud to be recognized nationally but
we realize that we still have a task ahead of us
The medical school is trying to encourage stu-
dents to practice medicine in rural areas where
there may not be medical professionals now.
Through such services as telcmedicine the med-
ical students will be able to get help they may need
"It's not enough just to have out residents grad-
uate. We want to encourage them to go to the
places where they ate needed Jobe said.

IIRIKN rVriON'CI Sjl.K M INM ISSI IS

Cloning is not a fictitious concept anymore.
With the recent cloning of Dolly the sheep in
Edinburgh. Scotland and another cloning of a
monkey in the IV many are wondering just
how long it will be before humans begin repli-
cating their DNA without natural reproduc-
The ethics concerning cloning have been
addressed in iooks such as Future SAotk and
the movie RlaJe liunrwr. This week. President
Clinton has announced a proposed ban on all
federal funding on cloning research and is
even attempting to extend the ban into the
private sector. So, are the recent crackdowns
another instance of trying to steer scientists
away from the inevitable?
"This is not something that will happen
tomorrow, although it is definitely feasible
said Professor Kenneth De Vllle of the
Department of Medical Humanities and
Bioethics. "That's why it's so vital to have a
reasoned debate about cloning now, while we
have time to do so. Because it has commercial
potential, a funding decision by the govern-
ment might slow it down, but there's plenty
of commercial money to allow it happening
De Vllle says the ethical questions that
have surfaced deal with individual liberties
versus the advantages of the community on a
large scale. Arguments for cloning are that it
creates a potential source of organ donors,
more freedom in animal research, diagnosis of
diseases and freedom for manipulating genes
in order to change physical characteristics.
However, there are harms, such as controver-
sy over the ownership of genetic material,
crossing the firewalls of some religious doc-
trines and confusion between the relationship
of the cloned with the human source from
which it was created.
"It raises such issues as. is the clone your
child or sibling and how should you relate to
him or her?" De Ville said. "Also, there are the
potential scenarios of having identical twins
born either five or 20 years apart, as well as
the concern that when you buy and choose
traits for babies, is it turning them into com-
Many students feel the cloning issue has
to be controlled. "I think science is going too
far in trying to reinvent man student Hollv
"I can see it having good and bad possibil-
ities, such as sending clones to fight a war
said student Harold Nolley. "But it still
seems unethical, because each clone becomes
a living person
Some feel a little apprehension in visualiz-
ing clones of themselves.
"They could say, "hey, you're a good
teacher, let's make three of you student

For four years the ECU Thespians of Diversity have

minority actors on campus and in the surrounding com-
The group was originally formed in 1993 by ECU
English professor Reginald Watson, with the intentions
of educating people through entertainment about the
noted and unsung achievements of African Americans.
" The group is open for everybody, and I encourage
all people with different backgrounds to join" said
Furthermore, particular encouragement is given to
African Americans to participate because it not only
gives them the chance to learn about their ancestors ,but
also the opportunity to represent and express their inner

On March 19 at 7 p.m in Mendenhall room 244,
The Thespians Of Diversity are scheduled to perform
Dr. Wfctson's black history play, Black Voices From The Past:
A Celebration of Wman's History Month.
The play will focus on the achievements of black
women like Nvigha the great African queen and warrior,
and Zora Neale Hurston, a famous writer. Since March
is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of all
women, Watson feels that this play is well-suited for this
month and will help to build a strong recognition of
African American Mfomen achievements.
"The play shows how important we are and how
strong we are and it will portrays black women very
well said freshman Kendra Robinson-
Tickets will be sold at the door for $3 and all pro-
ceeds will go to the organization because of a lack of
Student Government Associattio funding, Witson said.
Fbturc engagements set by the Thespians promise to
be "both educational and entertaining" says senior
Darrell Armstcad, a psychology major.
The Thespians plan on producing more plays and to
begin tutoring in local schools. As a result, the
Thespians will need more members to achieve their
goals, thus anyone who is interested can call Letitia
Lisane at 328-8783 of Reginald Wuson at 328-6684.
The Thespians invite all to come and celebrate a
continuation of black history.

Telephone sales agents at Avis' world reservation center in Tulsa, Okla used the term "Yeshivas" to refer to
Hasidic Jews said Rodgers, who said she worked in the company's account services department until July
John Carley, chief counsel for Avis, told USA Today the rental-car company has never had a policy to discrimi-
nate against Jews. But he said that around 1990 there was a concern that callers to the Tulsa center claiming to be
associated with "yeshivas a Hebrew word for school, were setting up corporate accounts, allowing people under
25 years of age to drive the cars and bringing them back damaged.

Crandell, Galloway and Sean
Richardson, also a former ECU foot-

them at a party and mumbled some-
thing about ending Crandell's
career. He then hit him on the head
with a handgun.
Galloway was also assaulted and
showed the court a scar on the back
of his head from where Staton also
hit him with the gun. He then
pointed the gun at Richardson. A
third charge of pointing the gun at
Richardson had been dropped.
Staton had denied the charges
until Friday, when he changed his
plea. Crandell had expressed his
wish to end the matter quickly and
quietly and explained that this was
the reason he and Galloway agreed
to the lesser charges.
Crandell was a record-breaking
quarterback for ECU, and set over
30 records including career marks in
total offense, passing yardage and
touchdown passes. Galloway is the

stabbed and beaten to death by her husband as their 3 12-year-old daughter watched police said.
Minelli was charged with murder Tuesday and held without bond in the death of Cheryl Wilson-Minelli, 31, the
1993 erand champion of the popular syndicated TV show.
Minelli, 34, a former pro boxer, told police he became enraged Monday night when his wife had come home late.

forms of competition.

Others feel cloning should be

Whether it is concern over reli-

cloning more controllable.

Spring break fever is heading your way. Yes, students all over the country arc gearing up for
what has traditionally been seen as a time for partying, being wild, indulging in earthly pleasures
and just having fun.
VWs at TEC are just as young, energetic and fun as the next person, but we want to play par-
ent for just a moment. When you, the student, leave your textbooks behind as you head off to
Che land of sun and fun, don't also leave your brains and common sense behind.
While spring break is the student's time to cut loose, it is also a dangerous time when need-
less and careless accidents happen. Many young students will go off to such party spots as
Florida and California, and they will be taken in with the freedom and urge to overindulge in
everything from sunbathing to drinking. Without fail, a large number of students are injured or
killed every spring break simply because they were reckless.
This may sound like stiff advice coming from a bunch of old farts, but as a voice for campus,
the staff at TEC just want to offer some simple, common-sense advice.
� Race yourself. Don't exhaust yourself in an effort to prove that you are young and full of
energy. Take the time to rest and relax. Read a book, take afternoon naps, listen to some music,
do whatever eases your mind, body and soul.
� If you do drink, don't over do it. Overindulging in alcohol can lead to anything from alochol
poisoning to physical injuries. And no matter how sober you may feel, don't drink and drive.
� If you travel, do so with people you can trust. Don't walk around unfamiliar areas alone,
even the beach. Many muggings happen on moon-lit beaches, so be careful.
� Try to eat at least one healthy meal a day. Beaches and holidays may be associated with hot
dogs, hamburgers and pizza, but take the effort to eat a decent meal with fruits and vegetables.
It'll help keep your energy level up.
� While such teenage movies as Spring Break glamorize casual sex, be smart. If you do go out
on the town and have a one-night stand, use protection. As any moron knows, one night of plea-
sure can lead to a life-time of trouble.
� Don't show off. Don't try to be the wild one at a party by performing stupid acts like dri-
j ving recklessly or climbing tall objects. We all have been at parties where someone got silly and
� Be civil. Don't start Pghts or be publicly offensive. When alcohol is involved, the worse
.comes out in people. Remember to treat others with the same respect you deserve.
We are not trying to sound all-knowing and all-mighty by telling what yoy should and should-
; ;n't do. All of us here at TEC just want every ECU student to have a safe, and fun, break.
Have a happy spring break, and come back healthy and happy.
FfTFRS TO TUF EDITOR
Manager responds to critic
lb the Editor,
Please allow me to introduce
myself. I'm the idiot who books the
bands at Peasants and I'm also the
manager of Purple Schoolbus.
Recently I've been reading in The East
Cmrohman that a person named Jay
Myers thinks that everything about
downtown and its music scene
"sucks I sent a response to him after
rhe first commentary pointing out
that his small-minded and unin-
formed musical opinion was just that:
his opinion. I dearly stated that I did-
n't begrudge him his opinion and that
if, as he stated, he needed to go to
Raleigh or Chapel Hill every weekend
to hear good music that it would prob-
ably be cheaper for him to just move
to that area. I backed up my own
favorable opinion of Greenville by
naming several bands that have been
in our market over the past four years
that have gone on to appear on shows
such as Letterman, Conan O'Brien,
and Jay Leno. Not that this means a
band is great or anything, but it is a
measure of success beyond say, whin-
ing constantly about things you don't
What dumbfounds me is that Jay
wouldn't let it lie. I replied to the
gentleman and, from what I under-
stand, the article never arrived to The
Somehow Mr. Myers thinks that
his comments were so profound in
the first article that they must be
heard again. This time he has decided
to further exhibit his writing prowess
by personally attacking an organiza-
tion of musicians under the guise of
journalism. The best word for this
journalism is mean-spirited cow-
ardice. The second best word is not
exactly fit for print but it has more
syllables than sucks, which is Jay's pri-
mary verb. Jay, if you want to be a
writer, 1 suggest you find a way to pre-
sent your opinions beyond simpleton
expressions such as "sucks Perhaps
you will try out some other short
words such as "fries With your
apparent expertise for communica-
tion, I see you asking the question
and me answering, "Yes I would like
some fries with that burgee"
Now, for the worst, and most
unforgivable, part of Mr. Myers sec-
ond article. He refers to a national
touring act from Greenville called
Purple Schoolbus as a show that
"sucks The band can't respond to
you, jay, at this time because they are
on a 28-day tour across the US that
includes 24 different cities. This is
the fifth time they have gone across
the country. One of the biggest kicks
for the band is when every night they
get a big introduction: "From
Greenville, NC please welcome
Purple Schoolbus They are
extremely proud to not be just anoth-
er band. They are Purple Schoolbus,
playing PSB music and doing it their
own way. With over 300 articles writ-
ten about the band and several of
them in national magazines, they
don't deserve the kind of attack that
you are perpetuating You obviously
think you can say or write anything
without regard to the situation or for
the feelings of others. Furthermore,
you state that because they have been
playing in Greenville for four years
that they suck. Hey, Skippy, let me
enlighten you. The reason they play
Greenville is because this is where
they are from. They not only love the
people of Greenville and the Attic,
they hope that, by example, other
bands will develop here and make this
the thriving music scene that it has
the potential to be. Purple Schoolbus
keeps drawing people because they
keep growing. They work very hard to
make every Greenville show as enter-
taining as possible. As a band they are
constantly writing new and original
material and trying to keep the total
You mention the Cats Cradle.
Guess what!1 Purple Schoolbus has
been a weekend headliner for the last
two and half years. Raleigh?
Headliner for as long as they have
been playing in Greenville. Jay, you
don't deserve to be in the same room
with a group of working musicians,
much less critiquing them. As for
your articles, I'm forwarding them to
PSB on the road. I'm sure they'll be
thrilled to have their hometown
newspaper referring to them as "suck-
ing while they are out there working
hard and spreading the word about
themselves and Greenville. Perhaps
your articles can get the proper atten-
tion they deserve out on the road. You
- know the food on the road can be hell
on a band's stomach and there never
seems to be enough toilet paper to go
As for what is good music and what
is not, I'd be glad to publicly debate
you. Say perhaps, on WZMB, where
you could expand on your travel theo-
ries and tell us all some more about
how the world would be better if we
all just thought like you.
One last thing. Last year PSB per-
formed 214 shows in 34 different
states. What did you do for the
Greenville music scene last year?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
though we could help, even though
we could make a difference. We are
the most powerful people in the
world. We are white upper-middle
class Americans. We have the privi-
lege of being able to attend college,
and having our voices heard and lis-
tened to. But not everyone has that
privilege. Many people cannot speak
out against oppression, against unfair-
ness, against racism or sexism or
We cannot choose our heritage and
background, and it was only chance
that we wound up as who we arc But
we are privileged, and it is our respon-
sibility to use that white power to
help those people who do not have
the same chance as us. We need not
to work with them, but to work for
them. Why do we allow racism and
sexism to continue? We all know it's
wrong, so why are we so complacent?
Generation X, the spawn of the
Hippie Generation, what are we doing
with our lives? We are being selfish
and cold. Generation X isnit motivac-
ed by pain or suffering, we are moti-
vated by money! We canit get enough
of it, and we seem to be saying that
we will do whatever it takes to ensure
that we have enough money, even if
that means denying that there are
people suffering because of our greed.
If you believe that racism is wrong,
or that sexism is wrong, than speak
out about it when you have the
chance. Recognize your own privi-
leges and use them to help other peo-
ple who need your help. If we arenit
going to do it, then no one will.
Support make week a success
To the Editor,
I would like to write and thank
The East Carolinian and WZMB for
their wonderful coverage during
Sexual Assault Awareness Week. The
support and participation of many
campus organizations helped to high-
light the activities, and served to unite
the campus on this important issue.
In addition to the Student Life
Committee members involved in the
program, three other groups on the
campus made a strong commitment of
support during the week. The
Athletic Department, along with the
coaches and varsity team members,
came on Wednesday evening to hear
Jackson Katz discuss, "Football,
Feminism and other Contemporary
Contradictions Without their pres-
ence, the evening wouldn't have been
as effective. It is extremely critical
that we work closely with out student-
athletes to gain their support and
leadership in changing campus norms
regarding sexual assault.
On Thursday evening, the sorori-
ties came out to show their support for
the "Take Back the Night March In
addition, Delta Pi Sorority assisted
throughout the week. Sorority support
and respect for outreach programming
is very powerful in changing campus
attitudes about sexual assault.
And finally, a special thank to the
Director of the ECU Police, Teresa
Crocker and the officers who came to
all of the events offered during the
week. The presence of police person-
nel at these activities reflects their
commitment towards sexual assault
education on campus.

Sexual Assault Education
Thanks for improving parking conditions
To the Editor,
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It's about time the seemingly
sloth-like folks over at Parking and
Transportation Services recognized
the residential parking problems on
west campus. You don't know how
many nights I've had to park my
Tacoma off campus and brave the
thugs that lurk in the shadows near
off-campus parking, the move to
change the parking lot on Reade St.
between Third and Fourth Street
from Freshman to residential is long
overdue, but greatly appreciated (I'm
nearly in tears of ecstatic job just writ-
I hope this is the beginning of a
trend to improve parking on this cafe-
swarmed campus. How about a park-
ing deck next? (I won't hold my
breath on that one)
At any rate, here's a warmest
thank-you from the bottom of my

Wacky Russian guys invade campus
Russian author and philosopher fyodor
Dostoyevsky is most likely rolling over in his grave.
At any rate, he is most certainly not juggling to a
rhythm. But the Flying Karamazov Brothers, who
have named themselves after his novel. The Brothers
Karamazov, will juggle. They will also dance to hip-
hop ballet, play Japanese percussion on cardboard
boxes, and pretend to be Russians.
The Brothers (who are not really brothers, at
least, not each other's) are world-renowned and
famous, as well as being downright popular. All of
this acclaim is due to their comedic performances,
which have graced such wonderful cultural meccas
as the Kennedy Center and Public Television. In
spite of all that boring, grown-up stuff, they might
actually be funny.
They've also hung out and performed with gen-
uinely cool people like Robin Williams (remember
the guy from Mark and Mmdy), The Blues Brothers
(the real ones, I think, or the ghosts of the real ones
anyway), Kenny Rogers (but they walked away when
they should have run) and even The Grateful Dead
(but there, the audience didn't laugh; they were too
They've been guests on Seinfeld, which at least
proves they are weird, if not hilarious. They've won
an Emmy for their PBS special and even been in a
motion picture. (Remember them from The Jem of
the Nik? Didn't think so.)
They have actual musical talent and will perform
such classics as Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" (on their
own heads, via electronic samples), Mozart's
Bassoon Concerto on the baritone horn (which had-
n't been invented when Mozart wrote the piece),
and probably some other stuff too because they have
to fill up two hours. They can juggle and dance, and
they have Russian beards.
The Frying Karamazov Brothers will be perform-
ing at Wright Auditorium tonight at 8 p.m. Yes, the
day before spring break, and therefore the day
before mid-terms. But that is no excuse not to go.
You will have mid-terms again, and if you fail
them, you can even take those same classes again.
But when will you get to see The Flying Karamazov
Brothers again? Probably never. And then when they
have gone on to rest with Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy,
Tchaikovsky, Groucho Marx and John Lennon, you
will despair because you had the chance to see them
as an ECU student and you went out drinking
Tickets are only $10, unless you procrastinate
and wait until the last minute. Then you have to
shell out $20. So be smart, be hip, be cool and take
a date to see The Flying Karamazov Brothers.
The Frying Karamazov Brothers juggle till they bleed tonight in Wright Auditorium.

CDreviews Guild brings Greenville musicians together
Ever since Nirvana broke through pop
music's bubble and infected hit radi-
oland with their brand of hook-driven
angst guitar grunge, the music indus-
try has been churning out copies (like
the always bubblegum Bush) and
musicians have been recoveririg from
the fact that anything can be mar-
ketable, even punk. All of this was
good for Cobain and Co. (though
Cobain didn't seem to realize it),
ftut, in a large way, it has been detri-
mental to newer rock outfits for the
simple fact that the people are getting
iired of grunge.
! Some bands, like The Prodigy,
Chemical Brothers and U2 have made
good from this by diving headlong into
the sea of trip-hop and techno, while
ethers, like Counting Crows, the
Wallflowers and even Hootie and the
Blowfish have reverted to an older
style of rock, reminiscent of the '70s.
Star 69's sound is definitely a child
of grunge, but the flavor of it is more
European, as if the Sundays had
turned on their distortion and rocked
out a little. Unfortunately, it is very
difficult to listen to this disc, hear the
angry passions of singer Julie Daniels,
and not think of the late shotgun-
wielding anger king himself, or worse,
one of his glitzy wannabes like Gavin
Rossdale (of Bush) or Alanis
Which is too bad because, in all
truth. Star 69 is a tight band with
catchy tunes, strong songwriting and a
compelling sound. Where Bush,
Morissette and others clearly swiped
what was marketable from Nirvana
and the whole "indie rock" scene, it
seems that Star 69 came to these
devices in their music all on their own.
In the end, however, to the average
listener, it just sounds like all that
stuff we've been hearing for the past
Six Ways To Sunday
Shades Of Gray
DEREK T. HALLE.
It seems lately that getting a gig in the
Greenville area is only a phone call
away. Thanks to the Greenville
Musicians Guild, all of Greenville's
locals have come together with bene-
fit concerts. Not only are the concerts
exciting, but so is the enthusiasm
coming from president Melanie
Sparks and the Bivans Brothers, active
members of the guild.
Not long ago, the Bivans Brothers
made their way to 106.5 WSFL and
the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre, an
important achievement for a local
Greenville band. With these two not-
so-small accomplishments, the Bivans
Brothers proved that local talent can.

Atlanta has produced many great
musical acts in its time. Six Ways To
Sunday is not one of them. Six Ways
To Sunday seems to be held as one of
Centennial Records' best acts which
makes me wonder about the future of
Centennial Records. Extremely
melancholy and whiny, Six Ways To
Sunday does very little to impress on
their CD, Shades Of Gray.
"Shades of Gray" is also the first
song on the CD. Dark organ melodies
and guitar rhythms set a serene back-
ground that is quickly shattered by
lead singer Rob Cash. If he's any rela-
tion to Johnny Cash it would be best
for Johnny to not admit it. Rob Cash
sings like he looks - pretty bad. His
high-pitch whine reflects back on
glam rock bands like Firehousc and
Speaking of glam bands, this
brings us to the second track, "Always
Running Away Rom Me A power
ballad that would make Warrant
proud, "Always Running" actually isn't
bad at first. Cash's vocals arc more
low-key and tolerable. Of course, as
the song builds, Cash feels his vocals
should too, and soon any hope of a
good song is trashed.
Now don't get me wrong. Six Ways
To Sunday are not a hair band bom
ten years too late. It's just that some
of their styles and vocais tend to
resemble the bands of that genre.
The lyrics, however, are totally writ-
ten in a Generation-X-meets-roman-
ticism type style. What does that
mean in layman terms? The words are
whiny and depressing.
One thing Six Ways has going for
them is their urge to experiment.
The songs on Shades of Gray contain
saxophones, string arrangements, and
strong organ and keyboard arrange-
ments. "Tell Me Why" has a light

An equal opportunity affirmative action university,
which accommodates the needs of individuals with disabilities
with effort and ability, progress to larg-

That's what we all want - a better
tomorrow, something to keep striving
The only way to establish a scene
in a community is to get heard. Now,
it seems, every other week the guild is
putting on another concert. No doubt,
with determination like this, the
scene is sure to take off.
By taking time to call a few of
Greenville's bands, the guild was com-
plete. For every group that is in the
guild, a letter is sent every month.
This way, groups can check out other
groups before they decide on an open-
ing act or a headliner.
The most interesting aspect of the
guild is that it has a huge respect for
its colleagues. In a way, it's free adver-
tising for most bands. Although there
are no dues as of yet to join, the word
is that there will be in the future.
Hopefully my band will fall. into a
grandfather clause of some sorts. Only
The guild itself has already
announced gigs in March, April, July
and September. The guild's schedule
is booked all the way into the new
year practically. This is hard work.
The hardest date to fill will be "The
Gathering a 3-day weekend in
September that will be composed of
over 20 guild bands and one semi-
major recording act which is soon to
be announced. Camping, food, beer
and crafts will be on hand for the
weekend. The only problem is that a
site has not been found for the activi-
ty. If you happen to know of a large
area that could host such a gathering,
call the guild at 746-8639.
With aspiring goals in mind, we,
the Greenville music scene, keep
playing, just like a few lost souls did in
Seatde in yesteryears. I believe it was
1991. All these bands stuck together,
arid the world heard their scream -
loud and clear.
My advice to any newcomer in the
Greenville area who is looking to play
would be to contact the guild as soon
as possible. This way if you're looking
for gigs or musicians to play with, they
can help you out.
So there you have it, 20 to 30
bands in Greenville have joined the
Guild and are now working together.
The ideas and goals may seem tough
right now, but you have to make a
starting point. There is no doubt that
Melanie Sparks and The Bivans
Brothers have done just that.
Berlin breaks comic book conventions
Often people think that comic books,
funny books, are for pre-pubescent
boys who have dreams of wearing
spandex and beating up bad guys all
day long. This crass, but common,
stereotype of comic books and their
readers has been challenged and
defeated umpteen million times, but
it still seems to hold weight in the
Jason Lutes is out to prove every-
one who believes that comics arc for
kids wrong. And he is succeeding in a
Lutes first gained popular atten-
tion with his black and white comic
book Jar of Fools. In that tale, Lutes
introduced us to Ernie Weiss, a down-
and-out magician whose life fell apart
after his brother, an escape artist,
committed suicide. Because of his
inability to cope with his problems,
Weiss lost his job, lost his girlfriend
Esther and lost his faith in magic. In
the course of Jar of Fools' story, Lutes
takes Weiss on a journey of redemp-
tion filled with colorful characters like
Al Flosso, Weiss' mentor in magic;
Nathan and Claire Lender, a con man
and his young (but extremely clever)
daughter; and, of course, Esther
Cdea, the aforementioned cx-girl-
friend who has quite a bit to work on
The greatest thing about Jar of
Foois was Lutes' ability to weave all of
these disparate characters, motiva-
tions and conflicts into a seamless and
engrossing whole. Lutes has now
taken his talent in a different direc-
tion with the historical narrative,
Berlin is set in the year 1928, a time
between the World Wars when that
German city was known as "second
only to Paris as the cultural center of
Europe So far in the series, which is
up to its third issue, Lutes has intro-
duced another panoply of unique and
compelling characters. There's Kurt
Severing, a jaded, chain-smoking jour-
nalist bent on finding out what illegal-
ities the German army might be up to.
We also meet Marthe Muller, a new-
comer to Berlin who hopes to broaden
her horizons in the big city, as well as
further her artistic education.
Although the story seems to
revolve around Severing and Muller,
Lutes also provides a number of sup-
porting characters as well, including
workers at the
traffic cop, a
poet who is
also a delivery
boy, an intimi-
lord and his
the other stu-
model, a kind
generous mother who cams a sec-
ondary income for her family working
at a textile factory, a young Jewish boy
who sells a weekly Communist jour-
nal, a social climbing debutante, the
list goes on and on. And none of these
varied individuals are there for back-
ground filler. Every character in the
book is well-developed, believable
Of course, one of the most inter-
esting characters in the book is the
city of Berlin itself. Through Muller,
who is just arriving in Berlin for the
first time, Lutes introduces the city to
the reader. Mulier's diary has this to
say about the metropolis: "I am anx-
ious and excited as we emerge from
the station, unable to recall the last
time I felt this way. Perhaps never. It
is, after ail, a completely new experi-
ence. Into the flow of it as a river.
Through warring currents of flesh and
smell, cigars and sausage, lavender
and roses, the sourness of neglect. I
cannot look and I cannot stop looking.
Through the rush of traffic I hear
music - is it Chopin? - as if being
played deep underwater. I am losing
However, Lutes not only portrays
his characters elegantly through thc
words he uses, he is also able to depict;
this world of the past with striking
vividness in his detailed pencil and:
ink work. Never given to melodrama' ?
Lutes alternates between bustling,
busy panels that speed along and large
pages of silent breaks that emphasize
the emotional content of the story.
Berim is simply beautiful, both as a
story and as a piece of artwork. If you
ever wanted to know what the buzz
about comics was, Berlin is a wonderful
place to start. Be careful, though.
Once you start reading comics, you
may never be able to put them down.
At least Lutes hopes so.

loop as the base of the song that in '
itself is annoying. This coupled with
weak songwriting makes "Red" one of
the weakest tracks on the entire CD.
"Horses another single, is proba-
bly the most upbeat song. It's also one
of the few with the guitar being the
forefront instrument. Again, a strong
musical vehicle for weak words. The
chorus is extremely repetitive and
Cash does nothing to vary his singing
so we get the same line, sung the
same way, over and over.
Shades Of Gray hits rock bottom
with the sixth track, "Wedding Song
This song has nothing good going for
it. The music is sappy, the lyrics are
terrible and, once again. Cash does
nothing to improve things. "Marking
Time" picks up the pace a bit, but it
comes too little, too late to have any
real saving grace.
"Lost A Friend" is the best song on
Shades of Gray. Upbeat guitar rhythms
and decent songwriting help make
this a song that even Cash can do lit-
tle harm to. But, any good feelings are
soon wiped out by "Everything We've
Wanted which is best summed up as
whine, whine, whine. Six Ways actual-
ly use distorted guitars and some cool
vocal effects to start "Everyrhing the
hardest rocking song, off on the right
foot. But Cash, acting more as a
wrecking ball than a singer, quickly
tears down any success the band
might have had with the song.
I actually hope the band never gets
to read this article. It's not that I feel
bad about anything I've said or that
I'm scared of backlash; I stand by my
opinion that this CD is terrible as a
whole. I just don't want to give Cash
anything else to whine about.

The good thing is that eatingftbru-
ary is a debut album. So, as long as
Radioactive Records doesn't decide
to drop the band if it doesn't gener-
ate a minor hit, this band has poten-
tial. Star 69 are comprised of three
Brit-pop musicians and an American,
Julie Daniels. Daniels is the chief
songwriter and singer. It is her
American rock sensibility mixed with
the happier, glitzier British pop style
of guitarist Richard Corden that
makes the music on the album as
interesting as it gets. With time, this
group could endure the backlash
from coming in at the end of the
grunge fad and actually put out a few
The band is tight, and the songs
are catchy, albeit in that Nirvana way.
Still, there is a lot of material with
merit. "You Are Here the album's
opener, is filled with all of the sparkle
and tension that makes good noise-
pop songs. "Burning Down the
House" is not a cover of Talking
Heads song of the same name, but
it's a solid rocker with a nice crunchy
guitar riff. "Lay Me" is one of the few
songs that breaks out of the grunge-
pop sound, coming closer to the
power ballads of Stone Temple Pilots
than anything grungy. (Remember
"Plush?") "Scabs" has an unraveling
post-breakup lyric set against soar-
ing, squealing guitars and a stum-
bling beat. "I'm Not You a good old
rock stomp, closes out the album.
Daniels is a talented songwriter
and, at times, her syrupy voice can be
alluring, but at other points it con-
flicts with the sequined feel of the
noisy pop. This may be the fault of
producer Don Smith, whose work
with Cracker had similar results in
the vocal mixing. But one can get
past these moments of vocal incon-
gruity, provided the music is appeal-
ing, which it usually is.
In the end, Star 69 is quite tal-
ented, and quite good at what they
do, though they are young in their
career. Perhaps with a little more
time and better production, this
band might provide some solid rock
n' roll. Until that time, eatingfelmmry
can whet the appetite for better,
more fulfilling sustenance.

Rodman hit Wolf in groin, sted elbowed
CHICAGO (AP) - Dennis Rodman head-butted a referee, used profanity on
live TV and kicked a cameraman. Now he's found yet another way to draw a
suspension - by hitting Milwaukee's Joe Wolf in the groin.
"We understand why the league did it. We also understand that Dennis goes
100 percent every game and gives all he has Chicago Bulls general manager
Jerry Krause said Tuesday. "He's just going to have to control himself in a bet-
Rodman's latest suspension, resulting from an incident in Monday night's
win over Milwaukee, is for one game. He must sit out tonight's meeting with
San Antonio and was also fined $7,500.
It's his fourth suspension - totaling 20 games - since joining the Bulls before
During Chicago's 108-90 victory over the Bucks, Rodman hit Wolf in the
groin with 2:10 left in the third quarter. Rodman appeared to following through
as he tried to block a pass Wolf had thrown.
"The league thinks the hit below the belt was not an accident, the league
thinks it was deliberate Krause said. "And that's something that happened.
There was contact below the belt and that's not supposed to happen
After the groin shot, Rodman followed with an errant punch toward Wolf's
head. On the next possession. Wolf got Rodman in a head lock and a double foul
was called. Rodman was then removed from the game by coach Phil Jackson.
Wolf was not punished.
Former NBA referee pleads innocent to
federal tax evasion charges
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A former NBA referee pleaded innocent today to fed-
eral tax evasion charges for allegedly failing to pay taxes on money saved by
downgrading his plane tickets.
Henry Armstrong was arraigned in U.S. District Court. Judge Tommy E.
Miller set a jury trial for June 12.
Armstrong and fellow referee George Toliver were indicted Feb. 12 by sep-
arate federal grand juries. Both men are from Virginia.
They allegedly downgraded first-class airline tickets provided for NBA trav-
el to cheaper coach-class tickets and pocketed the difference but failed to pay
taxes on the money.
The indictments were the first to stem from a two-year Internal Revenue
Service investigation, federal prosecutors indicated there could be more, and a
third referee was indicted Feb. 19.
Michael Mathis of Cincinnati was charged with tax fraud for allegedly
understating income by $69,000 from 1989 through 1992.
The judge originally said he could schedule Armstrong's trial for May. but
defense attorney Franklin Swartz asked for more time to prepare. Swartz said
the case is complex and will require travel around the United States to inter-
Swartz declined to comment on the case after the hearing, saying only that
the evidence will vindicate his client.
Armstrong and U.S. attorney Jim Mctcalfc also declined to comment.
Armstrong faces a maximum of 18 years in prison and a fine of $1.4 million
if convicted. He is free on a personal recognizance bond. His initial court
appearance is set for Feb. 26.
Cremins blames himself for poor season
RALEIGH. N.C. (AP) - If there are any fingers to be pointed for Georgia
Tech's first-to-worst slide in the Atlantic Coast Conference coach Bobby
Cremins wants them aimed at him.
One year after winning the ACC regular-season title, the Yellow Jackets (9-
f7. 3-13 ACC) finished dead last in the league and will play North Carolina
State on Thursday night in the tournament play-in game at the Greensboro
"We've been criticized strongly and sometimes that criticism wears on you
said Cremins, whose team has iost eight of nine heading into the ACC post-
season. "But this year, we deserve criticism. I have done a poor job. I consider
this the worst job I've done since I've been in coaching
The numbers back up Cremins' assessment. The 17 losses are the most in
his 16 seasons in Atlanta and his team's 39.8 shooting percentage is the worst
at the school since the 1961-62 season.
"I don't think this team has played up to its potential said Cremins. "I
know we're not a great team. I watch a lot of teams in our league on tape and
watching other teams I know where our deficiencies are. But, you can still get
� a lot out of a team that is undermanned sometimes.
I've done that at different times in my career and I enjoy doing that. I did
that at Appalachian State (1975-81) and I did that at Georgia Tech and some-
times I enjoy taking a team, that has lesser talent, and making them really, real-

It seems like ever collegiate athletic
program has at least one player who
has overcome grear obstacles along the
way to get where they are now. The
ECU Golf Team is no exception to the
rule with Richie Creech, the lone
senior on the team, who is a transfer
student from Barton College.
Creech, in his freshman vear
(1992-1993) at Barton College, was
named all-conference (Carolinas
Virginias Athletic Conference�
CVAC) and all-district. But with one
visit in September of 1993, his luck
"I was getting headaches and even-
tually came to find out I had a brain
tumor Creech said.
Creech went into surgery in
September to remove the tumor. After
the tumor was removed, he under-
went six weeks of radiation therapy.
"I eventually got better, but it took
a while Creech said.
The next scary question�was he
going to be able to play golf anymore
or was the end of his talented career
"I knew I wanted to play Creech
said. "But I had to wear a patch for six
months because I still had double
vision. But one time I shot one or two
over while wearing the patch, so I
knew that there was a good chance
that I'd play again
Indeed Creech did play again,
going back to Barton and being
named, once again, to the CVAC all-
conference team and finishing fourth
overall in the conference. Creech
missed all-conference by one shot in
his junior year. Then, he transferred to
ECU for his senior year.
The 23-year-old Creech is current-
ly still living in his hometown of
Wilson. Creech has lived there ever
since he was 12 years old. which about

Creech continued playing while
growing up, and played all four years
in high school. He played at Wilson
Hunt High School, winning all-confer-
ence honors three times and team
MVP honors twice.
After high school, Creech received
scholarship offers at many colleges,
including ECU. But, after further con-
sideration, Creech decided to stay in
his hometown and play golf for Barton

but I think that the transition would
have been too difficult for me at the

There have been some coaching changes
around the CAA this week. Paul Westhead of
George Mason, who lost the play-in game to
the University of Richmond, has been fired for
the Patriots. On the same note, Richmond's
Head Coach Bill Dooley, whose team lost in the
quarterfinals to ODU, has been ousted from
coaching the Spiders next season. And finally,
JMU's Head Coach, Lefty Driesell, who has
been coaching collegiate basketball the past 35
seasons and got his team to the championship
game by beating ECU and UNCW, will retire
after next season.

Talent and heart carries
Lady Pirates far
Tracy lat bach
Who ever thought the ECU Women's
Basketball team would advance all the
way to the finals of the 1997 CAA
Championship tournament? They
did. And perhaps the positive winning
attitude the Iady Pirates carried with
them from game to game is what got
With a good mixture of senior
experience and freshman talent, the
Lady Pirates played each of their
games this season with a lot of heart.
Some were won. others were lost; but
in the end, the team's main mission,
to make it to the final round of the
tournament, was accomplished.
What was it that made this season
so successful? Sophomore center Beth
Jaynes said the key to coming out on
top came from following the footsteps
of the seniors on the team.
"The seniors really pushed us to
work hard and give it our all Jaynes
said. "They really wanted to go out
with a bang. The seniors are going out
showing an incredible work ethic and
a lot of heart, which has been, and will
continue to be, an inspiration to our
team. We will miss them a lot
Jaynes said she is proud of the
team for getting it together and fight-
ing until the end. in the beginning of
the year, the girls suffered a few disap-
pointing losses to teams that they
knew they could beat, including
"We started to build up oui confi-
dence and our consistency on the
court Jaynes said. "That's when our
season turned around and headed in
the right direction
Jaynes said that her personal high-
light of the season came from the
North Carolina A&T game. A number
of the ECU girls were on the bench
feeling down, and Jaynes was able to
step out as part of the starting lineup.
She scored her career high of 12 points
and walked away from the game feel-
ing great about her performance.
Teammate Jen Cox said in her
opinion, the highlight of the season
came when the team first beat James
Madison back in January.
"In beating JMU, we started to
realize what we could do Cox said.
"Once we were confident, we started
to really improve
Perhaps it was at that time that the
team got their chemistry flowing on
the court. In working together as a
unified team, the Lady Pirates began
beating those teams they knew they
could beat, and even some of those
that they weren't real sure about, to
end their regular season sixth in the
Freshman Misty Home has learned
a lot from-this "good but tough year"
"The younger players on the team
know what it feels like to win now

prepared me better for next year, and
I am really excited about the pro-
Jaynes said although the freshmen
made some mistakes throughout the
season, they will be stronger next sea-
son because most of them got the play
time they needed to leam from those
mistakes this year.
"Next season should be just as
well, maybe even better than this year
because the players returning next
season will be coming back with a lot
of confidence and experience under
their belts Jaynes said.
When the girls first got to
Richmond last weekend, Head Coach
Anne Donovan called a meeting.
According to Home, Donovan com-
mented on all of the hard work the
team had put in since day one. "Now
she had said, "it was time to put it out
on the court
Donovan said the turning point of
the season was after the team took on
Richmond for the second time in early

After beating Richmond in
round one and Virginia
Commonwealth in game two of the
tournament, the Lady Pirates were
in a position that many thought
there was no hope of seeing: they
were headed to finals!

we hoped to be the team to come
out and surprise everyone and
knock off Old Dominion, but we
were also out there to have fun.

Justine Allprcss, Tracey Kelley and
Laurie AshenfeWer closed out their
careers as Lady Pirates the way
almost any collegiate athlete would
want: with a lot of class and a lot
pride. t ,
Kelley headed into her final
game as a Lady Pirate with her chin
held high and tears in her eyes-She
went into the game against ODU
confident that her team could make
a good showing and determined to
play with everything she had.
"We knew that it would take a
miracle to beat ODU, but our goal
was to play hard and represent ECU
very well Kelley said.
Kelley said that m her opinion,
the turning point of the season
came about in mid-January after the
Lady Pirates suffered a big loss to
American University. It was then the
team decided it was time to do
something different. One week later,
the Pirates took on JMU at home
and VCU on the road to bring in two
huge ECU wins. According to Kelley.
good wins gave the team the confi-
dence they needed to turn the sea-
son around the "right" way.
Kelley said that the best friend-
ships of her life have developed in
her four years as a Lady Pirate, not
only with her peers, but also her

Kelley's biggest disappointment
is the lack of support from ECU's
student body. The Lady Pirates put
in just as much time and effort as the
men's team and every other sports
team on campus.

It was more than devastating at
times to look up into the crowd and
see the faces of many family mem-

faithful Pirate fans.
"The women's program is not

students and the community alike,
Donovan said. "We want to see more
crowds like those that are seen at the
men's games. I am confident that
our success will attract morcstu-
dents to the gym in the future
Kelley said the amount of support
the team receives is the one and only
thing she wished could be changed
about the program.

This season will be one tor the
books in Lady Pirate history N.xt
season (along with recruits) will put
three returning seniors, one junior
and three sophomores on the court.
Also returning next year will be Shay
Hayes, who was actually part of the
senior program this year. Hayes
never left the bench this season due
to a back injury. As a senior, Hayes
has qualified for a medical red-shirt.
"I expect that Shay will come
back next year as one of the team s
biggest strengths Donovan said.
"Our seniors are leaving behind a
tremendous work ethic that willbe
brought back next season by her.
To predict the future of the pro-
gram may seem like a difficult task,
but in looking at those who will be
returning and the skills they will be
bringing with them, you can bet on
it that the Lady Pirates will be com-
ing back in the fall hungry for wins
that will once again put them on top.
