Candidates running for Student Government
Association (SGA) offices arc making prepara-
tions for their campaigns and learning that it's
going to take a lot more than a dazzling speech,
a firm handshake and a friendly smile to secure
a victory. These candidates will need a notably
large sum of money.
ECU has a set spending limit of $250 per
candidate, hoping to make the race accessible
to all students interested in running.
The limit was raised from 200 to $250
prior to last year's elections.
The increase from $200 to $250 last year
was because it was not reasonable with what
the cost for campaigning is today said SGA
Vice President Eric Rivenbark.
Candidates are responsible for keeping an
account of what they spend. The Monday
National fraternities work
on eliminating alcohol from
AMY L. ROVSTER
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
The national chapters of two fraternities
adopted controversial regulations which
. would ban alcohol in all chapter houses by the
year 2000, affecting one local Greek organiza-
tion and creating a stir among the others.
Phi Delta Theta's and Sigma Nu's nation-
al chapters want to stamp out alcoholic bever-
uges from their houses. ECU's chapter of
Sigma Nu is located at 501 E. 11 th St.
Robert B. Deloian, president of Phi Delta
Theta's General Council, said in a press
release that abuse of alcohol threatens the
principles on which Greek life are founded.
"Vk want to give renewed strength to the
core principles of our founder Deloian said.
"Our objectives arc friendship, encouragc-
: of academic achievement and develop-
in of leadership and community service
Phi Delta Theta plans to eliminate alcohol
i its houses by Jury 1,2000. There are cur-
11 alcohol-free chapters across the
The ban has caused concern among other
k organisations on campus. Jonathan
Mips, Lambda Chi Alpha member and SGA
rcr, said his fraternity has discussed the
ibility of their national chapter instating
"We knew about it, and we have talked
t it and we hive seen it coming Phillips
"A lot of schools up north have banned it
fraternity houses. They are phasing them
Phi Delta Theta said their decision was
based on research which pointed to increasing
alcohol abuse among undergraduates. Citing a
PH0T3 ST fATAICK IftELAN
study by the Center on Addiction and
Substance Abuse at Columbia University
which found alcohol to be a factor in 40 per-
cent of all academic problems and 28 percent
of dropouts, as well as the Astin Study, which
found the number of freshmen who do not
drink increased to 47 percent in 1994 up from
21 percent in 1981, the national chapter said
the decision was based on numbers.
Phillips said he is concerned that decisions
are being made on the national level without
consulting individual chapters.
"I'm disappointed that Sigma Nu and Phi
Delta Theta probably did not consult with
individual chapters Phillips said. "I think
they made a decision which affected thou-
Student Health, FDA educate
students about morning after pill
With the recent approval by the Food and
Drug Administration (PDA), pharmaceutical
companies across the country may legally
prepackage six brands of birth control pills to
be used as emergency contraceptive pills.
Although the emergency contraceptive
pills, commonly known as the "morning-after"
pills, have been available by prescription to
women since the 1970s, the FDA did not
declare certain brands safe and effective until
February of this year.
The emergency contraceptive pills are use-
ful to people whose birth control may have
failed, was not used or for women who are

Heather Zophy warns students not to use this
as a primary means of birth control.
"It is more of an emergency method like,

rive Zophy said.
According to Dr. John Nichols, a reproduc-
tive endocrinologist at the ECU School of
Medicine, the "morning after" pills alter the
lining of the uterus to prohibit implantation of
a fertilized egg in the uterus. The pills are like
birth control pills and the large doses of the
hormones estrogen and progesterone do not
allow implantation to occur.
Although the pills taken are essentially
birth control pills, Zophy 'warns students
"There are specific instructions which
must be followed when taking these (pills)
Zophy said. "There are specific pills which
must be taken to be effective. Students
should not just look at their birth control pills,
punch out the next eight and take them
According to Nichols, certain oral contra-
ceptives could be used as emergency contra-
ceptives if taken in the correct doses. He
advises that women get the prepackaged pills
or make sure their oral contraceptive contains
the right kinds of pills if they do self-med-
Nichols has patients who do administer the
pills to themselves.
"This may be the kind of thing that women
can do themselves Nichols said.
Zophy advises that women consult their
health care provider before taking any action
themselves because there are many specific
instructions which relate to using the "morn-
ing after" pills.
This emergency contraceptive device has
been available at the Student Health Center
for more than six years and can be obtained by
prescription for $8.
The pills need to be taken within 72 hours
of the sexual act. Under these conditions, the
"morning after" pill is 75 percent effective.
Therefore, females should make appoint-
ments with their health care providers as soon

sexual act occurred to be sure it was within 72
hours and when their last menstrual period

This show is being exhibited in the Wellington B. Gray Gallery in
the Jenkins An building. Gallery Director Gil Leebrick said this show
has over 250 pieces representing a wide range of disciplines.
"Everything that we teach in the School will be included�painting,
drawing, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design, photography, computer
design, foundations, printmaking, illustration, and environmental
design Leebrick said. "It shows the diversity of teaching approaches
by the different teachers and the diversity of our programs
The works are mostly by juniors and seniors and were chosen by the
area coordinators in each of the disciplines.
In addition to the completed works on display, there will also be a
section dedicated to foundation work, which shows artwork in its begin-
ning stages and attempts to demonstrate the process that results in a
completed work of art.
Leebrick said he felt the foundation's section might be particularly
beneficial for the General College st'tdent who may be considering a
major or minor in an an field, or simply doesn't know much about the
artistic process. Many students don't consider themselves to be artisti-
cally talented, he said, and don't realize that many artistic techniques

Vandals strike two hog farms,

CHOCOWINITY, N.C. (AP) - A hog farm manager says the vandals who
attacked his farm and another one in Beaufort County carry Tuesday morn-
ing were experts on hog operations.
The vandals smashed pipes at Van Guard Farms that sent 75,000 gallons
of hog waste into a nearby swamp. They also damaged pipes and fired shots
at hog houses on Wlmar Items, a few miles away. The pipes that were dam-
aged at Wlmar Farms carried no wine.
Vim Guard Farms manager and co-owner Hunter Clark said the damage
was the second suspicious act in recent days. Last week, someone entered
the hog buildings and opened the gates, allowing the hogs to run free, he said
An environmental official was dismayed by the incidents.
Crane said a farm manager at south of Chocowinity discovered the dam-
age about 5:30 a.m.

In the number of serious disciplinary actions per 1,000 physicians, the
board tied with Tennessee for the 48th-lowest rate of actions out of 51 med-

North Carolina took 38 "serious" actions against physicians in 19 � a
rate of 224 actions per 1,000 physicians, according to the organization.

Public Citizen uses the federation's annual compilation of boards' disci-

counts actions that result in a tenttmand or fine as a "prejudicial action" and,
therefore, a disciplinary action. Public Citizen does not count such actions.

Ten-year-old struck, killed by 100-pound roll of art
MIDWAY, Ga. (AP) - A fourth-grade pupil was killed when a 100-pound roll
of art paper requested by her teacher fell on her head.
Christina Aliffi, 10, and a classmate were sent by a teacher at Liberty
Elementary School to a garage behind the school Monday to get the paper,
Liberty County Sheriff Don Martin said.
Christina was supposed to catch the 8-foot-long roll as her classmate
pushed, but Christina missed and was struck in the head, Martin said.
Barbara Aliffi, Christina's mother, questioned why school officials allowed
the children in the garage without supervision.
Schools Superintendent Don CNeil said he didn't know any details
about the accident, which is being investipted by the sheriff's department.

DETROIT (AP) - Interracial mar-
riage has grown considerably, with
military people more likely than
others to marry outside their race,
according to an analysis of Census
University of Michigan
researchers found that 8 percent of
black men between the ages of 25
and 34 in 1990 were married to
someone of another race, compared
with fewer than 2 percent in the
1940s and '50s.
Among white men in the same
category, about 4 percent were mar-
ried to someone of another race,
compared with about 1 percent in
the '40s and '50s.
Military people had a high rate of
interracial marriage, which
researchers said may be a key reason
for the overall increase, said
Reynolds Farley, the lead researcher.
White men who served in the
military were three times as likely to
marry black women as white men
who never served, the study said.
White women who served were
seven times more likely to marry
outside their racial group as those
who never served.
Some people say the rcsus sim-
ply show greater tolerance oi mixed
couples since the years when many
states outlawed interracial mar-
"Hopefully people are just more
enlightened - their social circles are

40, a black woman whose husband is
The study's conclusions were
drawn from the number of interra-
cial marriages listed in the 1990
Census compared with those in pre-
vious decades. It analyzed Census
data on marriages between whites,
blacks. Native Americans and
native-bom Asians and Hispanics.
Gender also appeared to be a fac-
tor in marrying someone of another
race, Farley said.
For example, among Asians,
women have married outside their
race at a much higher rate than men,
and black men were more likely to
marry a non-black woman.
Farley also noted that there is a
higher rate of interracial marriages
in California and Hawaii than in
areas of the South or Midwest.

"When the students pick up

Side effects from the emergency
contraceptive pills include nausea,
vomiting and fatigue. According to
Nichols, this occurs because of the
high doses of hormones which are
taken into the system.
"The nausea is a response to the
estrogen in the pills so a person
would have to have enough in their

does get pregnant.
"There have been births to peo-
ple who took the "morning after"

small to know for sure Nichols

The restrictions for people who
cannot take the "morning after" pills
are similar to those for people want-
ing to take birth control pills. They
are not recommended for people
with high blood pressure, cardiovas-
cular disease or cancer.
The emergency contraceptive
pills are different than the contro-
versial abortion pill, RU-486.
According to Nichols, RU-486 is an
anti-progesterone which counteracts
the hormone. It is used after
implantation has occurred in the
uterus to expel the fetus.

CHICAGO (AP) - Wsmen as young
as 25 should get annual mammo-

While the American Cancer
Society urges women to begin annu-
al mammograms when in their 40s,

Editorial Board Note: In order to goiter
the full effect of tm following message, you
shouldhave read Tuesday's TEC or at least
been a student at ECU during the 1900s.
Spring 1997. The phrase sounds so
nice when we say it aloud. It sounds new
and hopeful. Now that the semester has
reached and passed its halfway mark, we
can't rightly say it's a brand new semes-
ter that offers a brand new start.
About the only thing we can think of
that is new is this semester's Student
Government Association (SGA) election
and speaking of which
Please let no one attach the senti-
ments of past "Our Views" to our view of
today because we truly are hopeful for
this election. Wj realize there has been
much�may we stress MUCH�controversy surrounding SGA elections of the past, but like we
said-this is Spring 1997. No need to dwell in the past. Because of our concern for the student
body and our hopefulness for the current candidates for student body leaders, we would like to
offer these candidates a few words of caution and advice.
Ws at TEC are students ourselves and, as such, we know what phrases turn students on.
Parking deck ooh 24-hour dorm visitation ooooh No SGA Tuition ooooh oooh!
Enough of that, lest we be censored.
In other words. Candidates, we already know what we want to hear. W; know what makes us
tick. What we need to know now is what you can honestly do about it. Let us be the first to say
that unkept promises are poor morale boosters. We are in no way making light of students'
predicaments on campus.
We know the problems are real.
However, we-as students-also know what the candidates know. Conceptualizations like a
parking deck are not new ideas to us. We know university officials have already dealt with the
idea, and our chances at solving the parking problem in that way (before the year 2010) are-to
paraphrase them-slim to none. And though it's not always evident from our behavior downtown,
we are rational people. We know that when providing any campus service 24 hours a day,
whether it be computer lab hours or dorm visitation, certain problems arise. rbr example, what
student do you know who is willing to work the 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. shift in the computer lab for
the sake of monitoring a bunch of procrastinators? Whenever you think of a 24-hour anything,
you also have to think of that many more people to man stations around the clock. And we don't
even have the time, space or ink to discuss the SGA tuition situation. (Catch us later.)
In other words, Candidates, attaching your names and campaigns to empty promises and
catchy phrases do not increase your chances of getting our votes. Concentrate instead on small-
er goals you can reach. It may not be banner material, but we'd appreciate the honesty.
Don't blame the theaters
Tb the Editor,
I would like to address jay Myers'
comments on the quality of Greenville
movie theaters made in the Tuesday,
March 25 edition of TEC. this past year
I worked in a Greenville movie theater
and, since my family moved here in
1990, I have been to each and every
independentforeign film that has
come to Greenvile. Therefore, I know
that the people of Greenville do not
support these movies as much as you
like to think they would, if only given
Greenville has been given the
opportunity to support
indspendentforeign films and has con-
sistently failed to do so. From my own
personal experience of sitting with 5 to
10 other people in a movie and from
working in the box office, I have all the
proof I need to conclude that not
enough people in Greenville want to
see independentforeign films.
The Greenville theaters are not
responsible for the choices of movies
brought here. Distributors choose
based on demographics of Greenville
audiences, the theaters and distribu-
tors are not trying to stunt your growth-
they are out to make money by provid-
ing a good. The goods (movies) that
Greenville residents buy are not inde-
pendentforeign films, but main-
stream, Hollywood pictures. Which
movie do you truly believe would have
the highest level of entertainment for
the general Greenville audience, there-
fore, making the most money: Liar,
Liar or Seems andLies?
Greenville theaters are like the
majority of businesses-they are provid-
ing a good that people will buy.
Unfortunatery, it is you and I, who go to
see these movies, that are in the minor-
ity of Greenville residents. Just this
weekend I went to StkgBJaik and only
10 other people were there. However, 1
realize why the choice of movies is lim-
ited. Until you can change the tastes
and preferences of the general
Greenville audience, things will not
change. Stop blaming the theaters ki
the selection�-go out and invite your
friends and neighbors who would not
normally go to these movies to go with
you next time.

New registration process needed
March 31 is a very critical day for
Now, for graduating seniors, it's
just another Monday.
For everyone else, it's one of the
most important days after Spring
Break. It's the day that you wake up
extra early; and, in a cheerless slum-
ber, head toward Whichard in search
of the shortest registration line. You
wait for hours to at leut get inside
the building. When it's finally your
turn to register, not only are all the
good classes taken, but you also have
an unpaid library fine which keeps
you from registering. So, you leave
Whichard and head toward the
library to pay that 35 cent fine. The
librarian gives you a quick thank-you
and you run out and go back to
Whichard, only to find the line twice
as long as before. You have to settle
for the important Underwater basket
weaving course instead of the classes
that are necessary' for your major.
What can be done to solve this
problem that has been plaguing ECU
students for marry years? After
chaotic years of registering, isn't it
time for a change?
There are many solutions to heip
the registration process move
One solution is called on-line reg-
istration. It sounds complicated, but
it's actually very simple. ECU admin-
istrators would need to design a com-
puter program to make this process
possible. Why not have snirienr no-
isier through their voice mail? After
all, voice mail is available to students
The week before registering, stu-
dents should go see their adviser.
During this time they will decide
upon a schedule, the first one being
the classes that they want and the
second being the alternative sched-
ules. (Just like you're supposed to do
now.) The only difference is that you
go to a computer terminal yourself
and type in the classes that you
would like to take. The students
would have limited access to a regis-
tration program allowing them to
sign up for various classes approved
by their advisor.
Now of course, there must be
some exceptions, the first being if
you need special permission for a
class, then you must register with �
professor. Also, the registration pro- '
gram should be designed so that stu1
dents can't sign up for whatever class
they want. In other words, if a so
dent wanted to take a class that has a .
pre-requisite that they haven't
already taken, then the pn&nm will,
not let the class be added.
Another solution is telephone regJj.
istration. Many universities use this
system. During registration week, all '
you would have to do is call the uni
vcrsiiy to sign up for classes. Of 7,
course, you would need to have some'L'
son of verification.
Now, these two different proce- '?
dures seem to be a lot easier then the
one we have now. Yes, there could be
a few quirks to them both. Like the
telephone line being busy or not
being able to find a computer to reg-
ister. However, if we would use all
three of these systems, then the reg-
istration process would be a lot easi-
er for ECU students and for the fac-

To the Editor,
In the article by Mr. Gentry,
which appeared in the Mar. 25 issue
of TEC, he failed to mention that I
am adamantly opposed to SGA exec-
utives receiving tuition.

that my esteemed opponent and I
have similiar campaign issues. The
largest difference is that we intend
to achieve them by vastly different

meetings printed in TEC following

Homepage at a cost of $74.
My esteemed opponent plans to
launch a homepage and publish and
distribute a newsletter.
The homepage is free for stu-
dents to use, however, his newsletter
would cost $510 at $.03 per copy and
$2,040 postage ($.17 is bulk rate).
The Fbst Office laughed when I
inquired about it.

going to foot the bill for this narrow-
The second issue on which I was
ignored was the 24-hour visitation
plan. I have spoken to the UNC-
Chapel Hill Assistant Housing
Director Lottie Riley and she
explained that the complaints came
from the parents. The students sign
contracts with one another and abide
by them. There has been no increase
in crime nor decrease in security in
these residence halls.
Since 1994,14of the 29 residene
halls have 24-hour visitation, thr
are 24-hour weekend visitation and
12 are regualar 9 a.ml a.m. hours
wceknights and 9 a.m2 a.m. on the
weekends. This clearly works and is
also a choice available to accomodate
all students. Treat the students like

After hearing Vertical Horizon's last
release, RmnmeOn la, I was absolute-
ly positive th� band had an album that
truly captured their intensity and
sound. After all. Carter Beauford of
the Dave Matthews Band played on
11 of the 14 tracks.
However, after listening to the
new album, Um Stop, my opinion
changed. Nat only does the album
tarry the message straight through
the recording, but the intensity of the
live show has been captured better
here than oft touting On la. In fact,
the r md is better than what I've
heard in most recent live albums from
Vertical Horizon's leading charac-
ters are Matt Scanneil ami Keith
Katie. The two started playing songs
in their dorm together in college, and
the sound just grew. One of the most
important things that these two real-
teed was that the message had to be
there before the band could. You can
tell that they have waited their turn.

me to my next point. The songs are
�fcasy to relate to. It's not hard to find
?our own experiences being put forth
n Vertical Horizon's lyrics.
The band then seems to take a
turn on the record to a more rootsy
type of feel. It's more Dave

"There is no doubt that the con-
sumers today are showing a dramatical-
ly increased demand for caffeine-
enhanced products andor products
that contain a boost says C.J. Rapp,
president of Global Beverage Co the
producers of Jolt Cola, who announced
they are adding XTC, a caffeinated
power drink, to their beverage lineup.
"Exhaustion is a part of everone's life,
and the desire for exhilaration or a boost
is quite natural
And so, increasingly, the beverage
industry is packaging that boost in a
bottle. Take, for instance. Water Joe, an
odor-free, flavor-free, acid-free, carbon-
ation-free blend of artesian water chock
full o' caffeine. Conceived by a former
.Arizona college student who needed
help pulling all-nighters, it hit Midwest
markets in late 1995 and is today selling
400,000 bottles a week nationwide.
The 16.9-ounce bottles contain 70 mil-
ligrams of caffeine, about the same as a
five-ounce cup of instant coffee.
"When I was in college, I didn't like
the taste of coffee or colas but I needed
to stay awake to study says David
Marcheschi, the creator of Water Joe
"When it's hot out, the last thing
you want is a cup of coffee. You want
something cool and refreshing

feinated water product, on the market

the four young men who had to dress

Making matters more disgusting
were the actors and actresses who had
to wear their egos to the show. Debbie
Reynolds joked about being a member

seem, the Oscars did have some
worthwhile moments. And, ironically,
these moments centered around cer-
tain people winning awards.

its family. Surge, a bright-green caf-

select stores Jan. 13. Inirial shipments
were sent to Texas, Colorado, Ohio,
Missouri, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota
and Wisconsin. Coca Cola admits that it
created the product in hopes of being a
hit with its prime market: "active

"There are a lot of people that enjoy

one way they can get that says Mart

Cappuccino Blast and the Mocha Blast,
both introduced in 1994. (And with
each containing 235 milligrams of caf-
feine, they contain a hefty blast of the
stimulant about the equivalent of four
cups of instant coffee.)

and should be commended for. It's
hard to keep the sound real at all
times, but with this band it doesn't
seem to be a problem.
The album rolls on, and the band
keeps the crowd screaming all night.
Obviously, everyone at this show is a
big fan. The album's audience knows
the words to nearly every song on the
card. Although Vertical Horizon plays
mostly old tunes on Live Stages, they
insert improvs to make the sounds
that much more real. This gives the
songs a new life. And after long
introductions, the audience is
repeatedly surprised to hear the next
or instance, the tenth track on
the record is "Heart In Hand
which is personally my favorite song
the band has ever shewn us. It starts
with an upbeat melody on a solo
ctric guitar. Nothing like the last
ilbum. The songs on live Staga are
I and straight to the point, which
akes this album over the top. It
shows you that the band has done a
9t of rehearsing. They really have
their sound together, in fact, they
needed to. After adding drummer Ed
Hth and bass player Ryan Fisher to
the act, they knew a fresh sound
3uld definitely evolve. Believe me,
: result is amazing.
Instead of a sell-out performance.
Live Stages shows us two nights of laid
ck, straight-in-your-face entertain-
snt. The album makes for an all
jnd good time, and it gives the
listener a feeling of rejuvenation. It's
a unique sound from both the band
and the crowd. The recording is
amazing, and the relationship
between the technicians and the
band is right. Everybody knows what
everybody wants and, in the end,
Vertical Horizon is shining from all
Finally, after making nice with
each other and convincing critics they
were still clean, they were ready to
release the album. That's when Sony
decided it didn't sound "Aerosniith-y"
enough and sent the band back to the
studio to record three more songs.
Finally, AW IJves was finished and
made available for Aerosmith fans
everywhere. Unfortunately, it's not
quite worth the wait.
The CD starts off with the title
track, a raw, feedback-induced tune,
that has potential but falls short. The
band recently played the song on
MTV's Spring Break and Saturday
Night Live, and it came through very
well live. However, the recorded ver-
sion is not mixed well and ends up
being a little annoying.
"Falling In Love (Is Hard On The
Knees)" comes up next. The first sin-
gle, "Rilling" is typical Aerosmith. A
story of love gone bad, "Falling" has
classic lines like "We was making love
when you told me that you love me. I
thought ol' Cupid he was taking aim.
I was believer when you told me that
you love me but then you called me
someone else's name
The rest of the CD is a mix of
mediocre and excellent. At least
someone had enough insight to
spread the good songs out, so that the
album is a little better as a whole.
Unfortunately, the mixing and pro-
duction of the album makes even the
good songs seem a little flat. Songs
like "The Farm" and "Pink" stand
out, but were even better in pre-pro-
duction than they are here. The ener-
gy that makes Aerosmith special
doesn't carry through quite as well as
it could have with a little more work.
There are enough highlights to
make this album a good addition to
any CD collection, but the real
achievement will be when the songs
are played live, in an interview, Tyler
remarked that a show they played for
some record executives got the band
excited about touring. "It's like being
behind the wheel of a Ferrari after not
driving for two years was Tyler's way
of describing playing live again. Songs
like "Taste of India" and "Rill Circle
while good on album, should really
get a chance to shine on tour.
So, until then, we're left with AW
Lives to hold us over. A mix of good
and bad, it's not quite worthy of full-
price but still deserves a listen.

Smith will honor contract through 2001
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Dean Smith says he plans to honor his contract
tocoach North Carolina's basketball team through 2001.
I Smith, who became the game's all-time winningest coach two weekends ago
in'the NCAA tournament in Winston-Salem, laughed Tuesday when a reporter
asked him about speculation that he would retire if the Tar Heels win the title
"If you win something will you quit?" Smith joked. "Ifyou like what you're
doing, would you quit?
I take each year as it comes and I won't make that decision in April, because
evfery April I am probably (tired). So, you wait to sec how excited you are in
August. For 36 years I guess I've bee" excited in August and September. If that
ever changed up until 2001 then I would make that decision
I Smith, 66, then threw in a political barb.
I "They didn't ask Reagan - How old was he? - if he was going to retire after
thfc first term Smith said.
; Smith, with a record of 879-253 at North Carolina, had said for years that he
had no desire to break Adoiph Rupp's all-time victory mark and that he might
retire before reaching the milestone.
I However, that decision never came.
"Friends had convinced me, former players and former coaches, that that
would have been the wrong reason to make a decision and that was true Smith
said. "So, nothing has really changed

Widow of former Dodger sues ball club
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The widow of former Los Angeles Dodgers infielder
Jim GilKam has sued the team, claiming it is profiting from his image on posters,
madia guides and other products.
'Edwins Higgcnbotham also sued major league baseball and acting commis-
sidher Bud Setig in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, seeking unspeci-
fietlgeneral and punitive damages.
JThe Dodgers' legal department did not return messages.

fgenbotham claims the Dodgers have sold advertising and profited from
's picture, including a poster with an Anheuser-Busch logo on it and
edia guide pages with LA Cellular advertisements,
claims Gilliam signed a player's contract allowing the league to use his
likeness during the season when he played, but didn't give permission to use it
in the offseason or after he retired.

I tverson says he deserves Rookie of the Year award
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Anyone expecting humility from Allen Iverson when
he� talks about the NBA's best rookies this season hasn't been following the pro-
'Iverson, the brash, trash-talking point guard for the Philadelphia 76ers,
believes he deserves the league's Rookie of the Year award.
iTd vore for myself Iverson said Tuesday. "I'm real close friends with
Stfephon Marbury and Marcus Camby, all of those guys. I want to see them do
wdJJI, but I don't think any of those guys performed better than me
ut he also thinks he's in trouble if it comes down to a popularity contest,
'ough Iverson, the No. 1 choice in the June draft, leads all rookies in scor-
linutes and steals per game, he's not had a smooth transition to the pros.
Steady tarnished by his role in a high school brawl that led to jail time in his
re Virginia. Iverson's rookie season has been marred by a fight with team-
ntttfjetry Stackhousc, his admission that he carries a gun and a steady stream
of criticism from some of the league's best-known veterans.
J"He thinks he's G-O-D God Dennis Rodman said. "I didn't want to hurt
hifi, just moke sure he knows he shouldn't come in here talking all that trash
fCharles Barkiey said Iverson's fundamentals were shaky, terming him the
"playground rookie of the year
Even Michael Jordan has criticized Iverson.
Iverson said he doesn't know why he's become a target considering there are
"a:to� of guys who did a lot more worse things than 1 have. I don't understand
where the criticism came from. I guess a lot of people wanted me to come into
this, league and not do so well. It's bad that I think that, but the way I see it,
Some critics have focused on Iverson's undisciplined game, but many have
taken him to task for not being deferential enough to the game's stars. Iverson
said he doesn't care.
"Because I'm a rookie, that doesn't mean I'm supposed to try to perform as
haid as I can?" he said. "That means I'm not supposed to play every game like
it'$ my last? That means that ifyou say something to me, I'm not supposed to
say anything back? I don't think that's fair
Iverson, who turned pro after only two years at Georgetown, said he's always
stood up for himself, and that won't change.
"I'll be hated all my career in the NBA if they want me to become some soft
basketball player that bows down to everybody he said.

In most cases, collegiate athletics are
dominated by a team's veterans. A
team's strength almost always lies in
the hands of those who have been
around for years and who have experi-
enced playing their sport at such a
highly competitive level. The men's
and women's outdoor track teams
very well may be the exceptions to
In their second meet of the 1997
outdoor season, ECU's freshman
faces brought in countless victories at
the Cape rear Invitational. The com-
petition was held last weekend at
The men's meet was highlighted
with first place finishes by freshmen
James "Eli" Alexander and Darrick
"Stick" Ingram. Alexander won the
400 meter dash in 47.64, while
Ingram was the first to cross the fin-
ish line in the 200 meter race with a
time on 21.31. The Pirates swept first
through fifth place honors in the 200,
with Alexander, Bevan Foster, Chris
Rey and Titus Haygood coming in
closely behind Ingram.
Alexander, Ingram, Rey and
Haygood put their talent together to
win the 4x100 meter relay with a time
of 40.71. The victory was the second
consecutive win for the squad, as they
won the event in the Seahawk
Invitational March 15-16.
"A win like this just pushes me to
work even harder Alexander said. "It
keeps me motivated and confident,
but at the same time, I know that
there arc always other people out
there who arc training hard to catch
Alexander's goal for the future is
to run professionally. In being a mem-
ber of a relay squad, he has focused a
lot on the importance of teamwork.
"It is my job not to let my team
down. I need to run the best I can,
not only for myself, but also for three
of my teammates Alexander said.
Ingram agrees that a team win is
more valuable than a personal win at

town of Williams town, Mass.
"I was just doing what all my
friends were doing. My older brother
was also playing, so I was just follow-
ing in his footsteps Flaherty said.
He played Little League until
high school, when he began playing
baseball on both his high school team
and the local Babe Ruth league. He
stayed behind home plate for all four
years of high schooi. When Flaherty
was a senior, he helped his high school
team win the Western Massachusetts
Championship. Flaherty also played
football and basketball, but he truly
shincd when he stepped on the ball-
field. His big brother also played foot-
ball in high school.
When Flaherty first came to ECU,
Ovenon recognized the potential the
young freshman had.
"It took u while to get each of his
facets going. Since then, he's made
steady progress and improved in every
aspect. I think that's a credit to him
"Coach Overton is great to play foe
He really knows what he's doing
One of the best memories
Flaherty has from being on the team
was when the team beat N.C. State
his freshman year. Each member of
the ECU baseball team gets along
well, Flaherty said. Pan of the reason
they are all close is the youth of the
team. There are no seniors on the-
bascbali team. Flaherty, a junior, is
one of the older members of the
Flaherty is majoring in communi-
cations. When he graduates, he hopes
to teach communications.
Flaherty leads the team in home
runs, having hit 11 so far this year. He
also has one of the teams highest bat-
ting averages with a .353 average. He
was named CAA Player to Watch by
Baseball America and already has pro
scouts looking his way.
"I feel I'm playing well this year.
This is definitely the best season I've
had Flaherty said. "I'm playing the
best I can, as hard as ! can, and what-
ever happens, happens
Tim Flaherty steps up to bat in the Pirates recent home games against the Citadel. The

CHAPEL HILL (AP) - Dean
Smith has always placed a premium
That's why the all-time win-
ningest coach is feeling a bit uneasy
heading into his 11th Final four at
North Carolina, considering he
starts three sophomores and uses a
freshman point guard for about 30
minutes a game.
"We still have a fine line between
victory and defeat Smith said
Tuesday about his team, which is
riding a 16-game winning streak but
hasn't lost since Jan. 29. "It's hard to
convince anybody, but I am watch-
ing practices closely.
"Perhaps every coach teds every-
body else is better became you see
your own players every day - all the
bad plays they make as well as the
good ones. Consequently, everybody
is surprised tc be in the Final four
he added. "You have to be lucky and
you have to be good (ro get there)
North Carc!ina was expected to
get to Indianapolis in 1997. Only
the Tar Heels were supposed to do
it with guys named Jerry
Stackhouse, Rasheed Wdlace and
But with the NBA draft gutting
the team the last two seasons, the
Tar Heels head to the nation's heart-
land this week with one of the pro-
gram's youngest Final four teams.
Stackhouse, Wallace and
Mclnnis would have all been seniors
on this 1997 team had they stayed
in school four years. However,
Stackhouse and Wallace left for the
pros after just two seasons and
Mclnnis bolted last year, forcing
underclassmen such as Antawn
Jamison, Vmce Carter and Ed Cota
into prominent roles.
The growing pains for the Tar
Heels (28-6) began to show in early
January, with criticism abounding
across campus, around town and
throughout the Atlantic Coast
North Carolina was off to a pro-
m-worst 0-3 league start. In the
jsimc, at home against North
ina State, the Tar Heels trailed
nine points with 2:23 left before
lying for a three-point win.
"ft little confidence came from
that game because we played tike we
had the world on our shoulders
Smith said. "fc played like we had
to win it and you should never have
to be in that situation.
"How would you like to keep
hearing, 'Well, if they only had
Stackhouse and Wallace and
Mclnnis or this could be the worst
Carolina team in so many years I
tried so hard to get it across that this
is this year's team, this is whom we
have on the team and we can do the
best we can - that is all that is
Jamison said he even went as far
as getting his ring size before coming
to North Carolina for what he
believed would be a national title
chance with the talent the Tar Heels
had compiled to go along with
Stackhouse, Wallace and Mclnnis.
But in two yean, the depth and
skill level had evaporated.
"It was very hard because I was
expecting those guys to be here and
once I got here they weren't said
Jamison, who as a sophomore is now
the team's star and second-team Ail-
"What I experienced iast year was
very hard, losing in the second round
of the (NCAA) tournament and the

In addition to his share of Xs and

game winning streak hasn't come
without a few words of wisdom from
"I knew we could improve if
everybody understood their role
Smith said. "When I said role, I
