Many activities planned as B-GLAD
celebrates Pride Week
lawn in front of Mendenhall Student Qmec.
Some details of the second part of Pnde Week are soil
being finalised and will be posted on B-GLAD's webs
aihttpwwwl.eeu.edugroups7bgladbglad.html as details
are known. Tuesday will feature Michael Armentrout ot
the Human Rights Campaign who will speak about issues
of same-sex marriage in Hawaii and congressional efforts
to ban discrimination in employment. Armentrout will
speak at 7:30pm in a location to be announced.
Pride Week will culminate with the National Day of
Silence, Wednesday, April 9. Approximately 90 schools will
be participating in the Day of Silence, a program started
by the LGBU at the University of Virginia. On this day,
participants pledge not to speak from 8am until 5pm in
recognition and protest of the silence imposed upon gays,
lesbians, bisexuals, and the transgendered. Participants
wear a sticker indicating that they are participating in the
event, carry around cards explaining their reasons for being
silent, and give these cards to people to whom they would
normally speak. Other individuals or groups wishing to
participate in the day of silence are encouraged to contact
BGLAD at 328-6149 or email@example.com in
order to receive information and materials for participa-
�on. , .
Speakers at B-GLAD functions should not be implied
at speaking for B-GLAD ECU or representing any stands
the organization may or may not take. They are provided
as informational speakers to educate the ECU community
on issues currently facing the gay, lesbian, bisexual, andor
transgender communities at large.

ORUNTATIOHCENRRAL COLLEGE ISSUES
In the future, the headaches associated with registration
week could be greatly diminished thanks to information
available on a Web site. There are several services already
available on this site, with others in development.
According to John Snowden of Computing and
InformaiionSystems, there are two kinds of services avail-
able on this site�public which anyone can access, and
secured information, which require a student ID and pass-
The public information which students can access
includes course schedules, html guide, job listings and on-
line course syllabi. .
The function which may be most useful at this time ot
year is course schedules, which .shows up to date informa-
tion on how many seats are left in a class. This data is cor-
rected almost instantly each time someone registers for a
class and takes another seat.
"It's as clc� to instantaneous as you can get, Snowden
Students are also able to see which teachers are teach
ing each section of a course.
"It always gives the instructor's name, so if you have a
preference, you can plan around that Snowden said.
In addition to these public services, students can also
get information on themselves.
"We do offer secure services, where students can get
personal information Snowden said.
In order to access information from their own records,
students have to apply for a Personal Identification
Number (PIN) using an on-line form. After choosing a
PIN, they are sent an e-mail containing an activation code,
which must be used before the PIN can be ualized to
obtain personal information. This procedure insures that a
student's records remain confidential.
Snowuen said one of the features which may prove
most beneficial to students during registration time is
being able to check their records for hold tags, such as
library fees or parking rickets, which could prevent them
from registering. , .
Other services which may be available in the future are
grade postings, advisor information, student directories,
and financial aid information. Other possibilities include
conducting SGA elections and student surveys on-line.
Soon students and professors will be able to make their
own home pages. They will be able to use this page for
their departments or organizations.
"Hopefully, at some time in the future, youll even be
able to register on the Web Snowden said.
Snowden said that the main purpose behind this web
page is to make things easier for students and to make stu-
dent records aviailbte to students at all times.
Many students have not heard about this web page. It
would be very beneficial for students to find out more
about it. They are still looking for different things they
can add to there web page. They would like some input
from students on what they would like to have in the
This site can be reached at http:indexecu.crfuser-

McVeigh's purported confessions.
About 75 members of the news

and injured hundreds more. Co-

Lucky student to receive
One sophomore will win a free semester at ECU � Wryty
completing a questionnaire and haying a little bit of luck.
The questionnaires are being distributed by the plan-
ning and institutional research department on campus.
The experimental survey is targeted to allow students
a chance to express their opinions in areas concerning aca-
demic and career assistance, university services and cam-
pus environment. �
"We want to know what the students think, said
Robert J. Thompson, director of planning and institution-
al research. "It (the survey) helps us define what students
want . . .
Although alumni and seniors have been completing
similar questionnaires for several years, the North Carolina
University administration has decided to target a different
audience in hopes of alleviating the students' frustration
with the current system.
The survey will consist of a long form, a short torm
(which will be mailed to the student's permanent mailing
address) or a telephone survey that provides a rating sys-
tem ranging from excellent to poor. A section for written
comments and suggestions will also be provided with the
According to past survey reports, problems with regis-
tration and an overall dissatisfaction with ECU campus
services have been the most common complaints. The
present registration process, the tag on a student's record
for a fine or fee, the complications in receiving financial
aid checks and the lack of a service oriented atmosphere
were at the top of the list.
"Change can't occur as often as one wants, but (these
surveys) help us identify the problems and set priorities

tration project which is expected to pilot in the fi,H-
The current university phone system required a fiber-
optic "make-over" in order to handle the capacity of an
on-line registration system.
The plans include a voice activated system which will
allow the students the convenience of registering over the
phone or at designated computer terminals around cam-
This technological process has met mixed reviews at
other universities. While it is helpful in eliminating long
lines and the "run-around" associated with student tags
and special Dermisskm signatures for certain classes, it is
not without fault. Complaints include busy telephone
lines and complications is sharing the one phone in each
dormitory room. "
Another change which has been implemented due to
survey responses is the electronic transfer of financial aid
checks for students.
This process will enable students to receive the bal-
ance of their financial aid check faster and also eliminate
the unnecessary but familiar lines in front of the Spillman
But, according to Thompson, responses arc not limned
to campus services. Faculty members are also made aware
of suggestions or complaints that could help improve a
department's current academic criteria.
Thompson said a lot of positive things are happening
at ECU and he would like to continue the trend.
Thompson is hoping for a large response, but he real-
izes the students are now facing fail registration, finals,
projects and spring fever and he understands filling our a
questionnaire is not a priority.
Because the student's input is important to the btu
administration, Thompson is offering several incentives to
help encourage students to participate.
A drawing will be held at the conclusion of the survey
The grand prize winner will receive one free semester (in-
state tuition and fees) for either the fall or the Spring.
Ten other lucky students will receive a $50 declining bal-
To be eligible for the survey, a student must be an ECU
sophomore who has completed between 45-60 hours or a
transfer student who has completed 30 hours at ECU.
Thompson also advised students to double check their
student ID number on the questionnaire before returning
the survcv and make sure all the circles have been filled in
correctly If a number is missed or incorrect, the student

Social workers say many return to welfare rolls
WINSTON-SALEM (AP) - Social workers say it's easy to push people off
welfare within two years, as Gov. Jim Hunt's Work First initiative requires.
The more difficult challenge they face is keeping people from coming
As caseworkers put more welfare recipients to work, they are finding that
welfare reform often is more complicated than just kicking people oft the
rolls As thev wade deeper into the caseload, the caseworkers are encounter-
ing many recipients who have a complicated web of problems: illiteracy, drug
abuse, domestic abuse and depression.
Researchers say that North Carolina and other states can expect more
such stories - and more repeat customers - as they try to cut the welfare rolls
" LaDonna Pavetti, a researcher at the Urban Institute in Washington and
a noted expert on welfare, has found that, typically, 40 percent of the recipi-
ents who leave welfare for work return within a year, and almost 70 percent
return within five years.
Umpire pulls out gun to stop fight at softball game

Police said the fight happened about 1 p.m. at a Davie County recre-

toward the dugout. The umpire behind home plate then ejected him, which
started an argument.
Another umpire, Eddie Stewart, was punched in tne face by a Mocksville
player, and fighting among several people erupted on the field.
Gaston County police said Christopher Marrow then pulled a handgun
out of his car, waving it above his head in an effort to protect Stewart.
The fighting continued for about 45 minutes. Police said several witness

Mother charged in death of 5-year-old son
NEW YORK (AP) - Five-year-old Daytwon Bennett wasn't around when a
city social worker visited his home earlier this month, and his mother was
ordered to make sure he was there for a scheduled visit today.
But Daytwon died over the weekend, a victim of starvation and repeated
beatings, officials said. His mother was charged with murder.
The boy died of heart failure brought on by malnutrition, said Nicholas
Scopetta, commissioner of the city's children's services administration. He
said the agency will investigate its handling of the case.
Daytwon's mother, 27-year-old Jocelyn Bennett, on Saturday rushed her
son to a Bronx hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
An autopsy showed Daytwon had been starved and beaten, with injuries
to his head, torso, arms, legs and spine that were in various stages of healing,
said Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for the city medical examiner's office.
The 3-foot, 9 12-inch tall boy weighed 30 pounds, a typical weight for a
boy under the age of 3.

Pope's visit to Sarajevo brings hopes for
uniting fractious Bosnia
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) -With reconciliation efforts in danger
of failing, the faithful hope that Pope John Paul II's visit will promote a peace
that this fractious country has not known for years.
A 1994 papal trip to Sarajevo during the Bosnian war had to be canceled
over fears of attacks on crowds gathered to see John Paul. This time, the
pope will hold an outdoor Mass for Catholics and meet with Muslim and
Orthodox Serb representatives during his April 12-13 trip.
Help to reunite Bosnia is needed: Bosnian Serb leaders openly seek unity
with Serbia and relations between the Muslims and Croats who are sup-
posed to run the other half of Bosnia together are at a new low.
Bosnian President Alija Izctbegovic told President Clinton just last week
that NATO troops monitoring the peace can leave next year as scheduled
onlv if war criminals are caught and refugees are allowed to return hone.
Otherwise, he indicated, new war is a very real possibility.

University of Tennessee students frightened
by sexual assaults
Knoxville has been terrified by a series of sexual assaults in the last month
and UT students are warned to stay on the lookout.
According to Knoxville Police Department reports, three sexual assaults
have occurred recently in the Fort SaundersSouth Knoxville area. So far,
none of the incidents have occurred on UT property.
According to officer Foster Arnett, the KPD does not have a particular
suspect in mind. All the incidents occurred very early in the morning, all
three victims' eyes were covered and the perpetrator(s) entered through the
doors or windows.
In spite of that, the UTPD has put out flyers warning students of these
occurrences, urging them to take extra precautions.
NC State University bans halogen lamps
A number of recent fires has led University Housing to ban a popular brand
of halogen lamps.
The lamps, called torchiere lights, have been responsible for three tires
this semester and five since the beginning of last year, according to
University Housing Director Tim Luckadoo.
The torchiere lights rest on top of a pole and project light upward onto
the ceiling. They are becoming increasingly popular among N.C. State stu-
Trie torchiere lights are hotter than other lamps and, because of that, are
more likely to cause fires, Luckadoo said. The torchiere lights also tend to
tip over easily because thev are top-heavy, he said.
Luckadoo said the risk the torchiere lights present to residents and resi-
dence halls necessitated a swift ban.
LAickadoo said he would rather not ban the lamps. However, he said, the
recent fires left him with no choice other than the ban.

Duke researchers consider using
expertise to start bio-business
DURHAM (AP) - Duke Univenity Medical Center officials are considering a move to take their genetic-research
expertise and turn it into big bucks.
After establishing a noted reputation in the field of genetic research, scientists and administrators arc now consider-
ing whether to use their knowledge to build a biotechnology company owned, at least in part, by the medical center.
Duke scientists have already been instrumental in discoveries linking specific genes to diseases such as Alzheimer's
and breast cancer.
The scientists envision a company as a high-priced genetic-research firm that can raise more money to help further
even more research.
Private industry, such as pharmaceutical firms, would pay the company to hunt for genes that could play a role in spe-
cific diseases, said Allen Roses director of Duke's Joseph and Kathleen Bryan Alzheimer's Disease Research Center.
"We have something called know-how said Roses, who also oversees Dukes Center for Human Genetics. "What we
; don't have is the financial resources to spread this to other diseases
Even with $180 million in reserves and investments, Duke can't bankroll the lengthy and costly search for the many
genes possibly linked to a wide array of major diseases. Some of the target diseases include coronary artery disease,
" osteoarthritis, lung cancer, late-onset breast cancer and prostate cancer, Roses said.
The way the company would fund itself is big companies would subscribe for the information concerning certain dis-
r eases they are interested in he said.
The company's future is tied up in whether Duke can find a business partner willing to invest in starting the compa-
1 ny. While the medical center's chief financial officer said the company isn't a sure bet, Roses already has given it a name:
The name is related to the important role genes play in disease and how a person's genetic information needs to be
n protected. In Greek mythology, Cerberus was the three-headed dog guarding the entrance of Hades.
J Roses, the Duke neurologist who led the research team that discovered a gene linked to Alzheimer's disease, said Duke
probably would "own a big part" of the company
The company, in turn, would be the patent-holder of any genetic discoveries. It then would license the discoveries to
industry to develop the findings into commercial applications such as diagnostic or therapeutic products.
Duke officials say nothing has been worked out with any potential investors, but a decision will be made by the end
of the year on whether to pursue the idea.
Researchers like Roses say the potential for genetic-based research is endless.
If the biotech company can isolate and identify genes linked to certain diseases, patients carrying those genes, or
genetic variants, could be warned to 3tay away from behaviors thai would place them at higher risk of developing the dis-
Sease, Roses said.
Rx instance, if researchers can identify a gene linked to lung cancer, that would mean someone with the gene ss at
� higher risk of developing the disease and thus should avoid certain behavior, such as smoking, that could turn on a genet-
ic switch for the disease.
"We may be able to pick out people who are susceptible to environmental influences Roses said. "So you don't smoke
because you're going to get cancet" '

Ever wondered why teachers grade the way they do?
Ever wondered why that A paper you took from your frat brother, pulled from "the file" or
bought off the Internet earned you a C when you handed it in?
Whether a student cheats or plagiarizes is one thing. Whether or not that paper reflects a stu-
dent's style is another. When a student chooses to cheat or plagiarize, they forfeit their right to
free speech, their right to express themselves.
Teachers do grade differently. An A paper to one teacher can be a D paper to another. One
teacher may focus on the rhetorical content of the paper, while another may focus solely on the
style of the writer. Still another may focus on grammar, yet another may emphasize subject con-
tent. Just as clear, concise writing may earn the paper an A in an English class, the same paper
turned in for a history class could earn a D because the content isn't there.
One thing most teachers have in common is they want to grade students fairly. If they feel a
student hasn't put their best work into a paper�or any original work at all� it could mean the
difference between that C and D.
Remember, papers are a way to demonstrate what you, the college student, know. They are
your way to express yourself�no matter how stuffy the format or subject matter gets. Teachers
are looking for a personal touch. Students think they know more than the teacher; papers show
In the days of online cheating and rumored paper files in dorms and Greek houses, it can be
easy to cheat. It's rather tempting to cheat when you have to decide whether to go to the library
or a party. It's tempting when Mom and Dad aren't going to come in your room and look over
your shoulder. It's tough to sit in front of a computer when it's a sunny day. A few minutes surf-
ing the Net and a few dollars later will get you out in the sun sooner, but it can also get you a
failing grade for cheating.
Try taking the class over again this summer when it's prime tanning time and prime party-
ing time because you cheated.
Our stance on cheating is simple: Don't do it.
Yes, it can cut into party time. Tfes, you actually have to do your own work Yes, you have to go
to the library and do research. Yes, you run the risk of missing your favorite TV show. And no,
you don't always get an automatic A out of it.
But think about these consequences. You give up your right to express your own opinions. You
give up the right to learn-and, after all, isn't that why most of us are here?
Tfou run the risk of getting kicked out of college. Worse yet, you run the risk of having to face
your Mom and Dad. Imagine having to explain to your parents why that party was more impor-
tant than actually doing your own work, why you have a really killer tan and a failing grade.
City officials need to address
lb the Editor,
By now everyone in town is con-
cerned about the rash of murders and
other crimes that our city is experienc-
ing. A recent trend that really needs to
be discussed immediately is the vic-
timization of students and young peo-
ple in our city. There have been sever-
al recent articles involving assaults,
robberies and burglary attempts in the
student areas of our city. I feel that the
students and young residents of this
town are almost sitting ducks for crim-
inals to take advantage of. I also think
that it is clear to everyone that city
leaders are less responsive to the needs
of our younger comrr. unity. That is why
I'd like to call on people like Inez
Ridley and the Mayor to get it in gear
NOW! We need immediate action
from the City Council on this new
wave of crimes.
The best course of action would be
for city leaders, local law enforcement
and East Carolina University to act
now to tighten security to protect our
young and to begin an education cam-
paign to warn students of the rapidly
growing danger to them and their prop-
erty. Crime statistics show that the
number of burglaries in student areas
spike during the summer, spring break,
Christmas and fall break. This is prob-
ably because the criminal element in
this town knows when the students
will be away from their belongings.
This problem has been neglected for
years and now the problem is turning
into home invasions and armed rob-
bery. If you leave the cheese unpro-
tected, the rats will come for it.
I am both a student and a member
of an area of Inez Ridley's district that
didn't get gerrymandered out. I am not
very confident that Ms. Ridley will
take any action, but something needs
to be done soon. I once lived off cam-
pus, I became a victim of these crimes,
and now I've moved back onto campus
out of fear for my safety and belong-

Aramark's not listening
Over that past couple months, I
have noticed that upon entering
Mendenhali Dining Center, no matter
how hungry I thought I was. I lose my
appetite. In fact, I have noticed that
when I eat on campus, I become
depressed. I lose any drive I had to
eat anything, I become unmotivated
and if it weren't for Tht Simpsons every
night at 6:00,1 would probably never
get anything done.
What is wrong with ECU?
Why can't they have decent dining
facilities like other state schools?
Why do we have to settle for the same
four entrees everyday? And if you are
vegetarian, like me, it's even more dif-
ficult to find foods that make you
happy. I mean, at some point, I lost
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
interest in salad, pasta and pizza. I
will give the staff credit for at least
trying to help out with our dining
needs. The problem is definitely not
the staff, but Aramark. The problem
is that Aramark can't hear us. I am
just one student at one school of many
that Aramark supplies food for, not to
mention everything else they supply
They could care less whether I get a
balanced diet or not, because either
way, they are getting the same
amount of money.
So really, there is no need for them
to cater to anyone's needs, whether
it's a vegetarian or a carnivore, and we
get stuck with the crappy excuse for
food they send us. It's depressing,
and unfortunately there is little we
can do about it. We could just not buy
a meal plan next year, but then we are
forced to do the unthinkablecook
for ourselves. I know that this option
just doesn't appeal to many of us
because we all know cooking for your-
self means heating up some ramen
noodles or making a peanut butter
and jelly sandwich. So much for that
The only thing we can do is to
complain about it. Whine, ydl, write
letters, throw a tantrum in the chan-
cellor's office (but you didn't get that
idea from me). If enough people are
concerned about it, maybe the univer-
sity will be forced to look at other
Time for change in SGA
We, as a group, are responding to
the "Our View" in Thursday's edition
(March 27, 1997) of Tie East
CaroSmtm. First of ail, we are not mak-
ing any promises that will not be
fought for. As you have stated we
know what phrases turn students on
Well, have you ever stopped to realize
how we came up with these phrases?
Uhh, maybe the students perhaps!
When we decided to run together
(Webster, Kaltenschnee, McQueen
and Spraker), we sat down and asked
ourselves what issues did students
want to change, thus constituting our
stance on a few specific issues. This
is exactly what you talked about in
"Our View" of TEC, with regards to a
parking deck, 24-hour residence hall
visitation and no SGA tuition. You arc
absolutely right; some of our ideas are
not new. Ruthcrmore, everyone
knows we need a parking deck and we
need one now, so why don't we have
one? This is because no one has gone
head-to-head with the administration
on this issue.
On the idea of the 24-hour com-
puter lab, other schools have institut-
ed them and they are very beneficial
to students. You say you need evi-
dence? North Carolina State, UNC-
Charlotte and Virginia
Commonwealth are universities who
have 24 hour computer labs. I guess
some of you are financially blessed,
because many people have to work
and do not have time to utilize the
computer labs at "normal" operating
hours. Our university has many full-
time employees, so what is wrong
with instituting job positions so that,
for once, students could benefit?
Lastly, with regards to SGA
tuition, yes the great debate, the most
talked about controversy If you have
read this page, the "Opinion" page,
you will know where we are coming
from. First published in TEC was an
opinion against the SGA executives
receiving free tuition (2-13-97) and
then came the letters from students,
one on 2-18-97 and another on 2-20-
97. So, as you can see, this is nothing
"new" to the student body This past
semester, Cliff Webster and James
Kaltenschnee wrote a resolution try-
ing to get the students' agreement to
abolish SGA executives receiving free
tuition. It was voted down in the SGA
Legislature, and ironically, Lisa Smith
(candidate for SGA Treasurer) and
Sean McManus (candidate for SGA
Vice President) were in support of
giving the SGA Executives free
tuition. At any rate, when we say we
are going to fight for students, that is
exactly what we are going to da WE
WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT
AND FIGHT FOR STUDENTS.

To the Editor,
It seems that the trend has been to
write letters to the editor to accuse
the SGA officials of not listening to

converse�that students do not make

realize that I was part of the problem.

typtcajh done little else�until now.
A dear friend of mine, Scott
Fbrbes, has convinced me that voting
isn't enough, that to be a good citizen
of the ECU community required that
I be informed and active. Thus, I'm
making a concerted effort to be
involved in this election, especially on
Scott Forbes has a sincere interest
in ECU as a community. He has
spearheaded the effort to write the
East Carolina University Creed (You'll
hear more about this later) and I'm
convinced he can make our communi-
ty better. Scott has an uncanny ability
to examine a given problem, to step
hack and to find a solution that makes
sense. He is the consummate pragma-
tist. When making decisions. Scott
doesn't think, "What does this mean
for Scott Forbes?" or "What does this
mean for Leah Stash?" but rather,
"What makes sense for our communi-
ty?" Scott, however, retains that
understanding that our community is
made up of you and me.
By the same token, you and I are
obligated, as member of the commu-
nity, to make ourselves heard. And
when we do, my friend, Scott Rwbes,

The Best of Fat
After hearing the gravel-gut delivery
of blues Buddha Howlin' Wlf, Sun
Records founder Sam Phillips
remarked, "This is where the soul of a
never dies Surely then, the
nearly 70-year-old R.L. Burnside is a .
case where the libido of a man never
dies. "Whiskey and wimmin" ain't
been the death of him yet, and by
God, he's not gonna quit now.
Burnside is back with Mr. Waarti,
his follow up to last year's A Ass Potkrt
of Whiskey, which featured the Jon
Spencer Blues Explosion as his back-
ing band. The Explosion, however, is
around for only two tracks on Mr,
You might suspect that with
Spencer and company's limited par-
ticipation Mr. Waard might be a little
less hellhound than the last album.
That might give you a raise sense of
relief, alleviating your concerns that
your stereo speakers couldn't handle
another Ass tenter.
R.L guitarist Kenny Brown and
dnimtief CWriC BurniitJc (R.L'sv
grandsofi) wilj put the fear back in you
on "Snake Drive the album's fourth
track. "Snake Drive" also appeared on
Ass Pocket, but the version that appears
on Mr. Waard Well, let me put it
this way, play this song at about three
in the morning, crank it and watch as
the police invade your house in about
two secdnds. Don't fear; you won't get
a ticket. The officers will be cast
under the spellof the wizard and
won't be able to stop shakm their
asses. "Snake Drive" explodes, decon-
structs, makes up and explodes again.
Instead of ending with Spencer
yelling, as the song did on Ass Pocket,
this new version ends about three
minutes later with Burnside tri-
umphantly shouting, "Yeah reclaim-
ing the song.
It's interesting, and perhaps appro-
priate, that Mr. Waarti begins and
ends with Burnside alone with his gui-
tar. "Over the Hill the opening track,
and "You Gotta Move" spin tales of
judgment day and facing the power of
God that would have forced blues
devil Robert Johnson, with all the
hellhounds on his trail, to repent.
These two songs are dark, reflective
and damn scary, especially with
Burnsidc's piercing guitar wizardry
which grabs you by the innards and
won't let you loose.
But the album is fun as hell, too.
More than likely, you'll have to deliver
your underwear to the trash after lis-
tening to Mr. Waarti. Burnside and his
band aim to make you sweat and stink
on songs like "Georgia Women "Out
on the Road" and "Rollin' and
Tumblin The two songs with the
Blues Explosion, "Alice Mae" and
"Highway 7 are hard driving and
intense, perfect for anyone who
enjoyed Ass Pocket.
On "Georgia Women Burnside
informs us, "I don't know, but I've
been told Georgia Women sweet
jelly roll Burnsidc's songs them-
selves arc sweet jelly rolls with an
extra helping of his blend of deep
blues. You don't have to worry about
hating yourself in the morning,
because the wizard and his spells
won't let you remember.
Burnside also appears on the faith-

ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Multiculturalism has taken some hard
blows from the media and even the
academic world in which it is thriving.
Some blame multiculturalism for the
fragmentation of our educational sys-
tem, some see it as privileging minor-
ity groups over others, some claim
that it is erasing the traditions of our
country by being too inclusive, some
simply don't understand it.
Despite these accusations, multi-
culturalism, as a form of academic
study and an ideological way of life,
makes the world a bigger and better
place by striving to promote cultural
awareness through openness and fair-
ness. For a multiculturalist, the doors
of the mind are not shut, allowing
only a few elite in, but are instead in
an open state where productive dia-
logue can take place.
And education is the best method
for opening those doors.
Acknowledging this fact, Dr.
Seodial Deena, the coordinator of the
multicultural literature concentration
in ECU's English department, will
present two talks on campus that
exemplify the eclecticism of multi-
culturalism. Both talks are guaranteed
to educate his audience and clearly
illustrate the complexity of his chosen
The first talk, which will take
place in Great Rooms One and Two of
the Mendenhall Student Center on
April 3, is entitled "The Bible and the
New Age Movement Anyone
intrigued with conspiracy theory
should make every effort to hear
Deena as he explores the possible
existence of a movement which one
scholar characterizes as having
"legions of conspirators in hospitals,
universities and schools
In this lecture, Deena will pay par-
ticular attention to theories of power
and influence, two very important
topics for any multiculturalist.
"At the root of New Age philoso-
phy is a subtle rebellion against the
sovereign, biblical and holy God
Deena says. "The obsessive quest for
instant results - health, wealth, suc-
cess and fame - seduces us to lose
to the god of
"What is the extent of the move-
ment's influence?" and "What arc the
movement's philosophies?" On top of
these difficult questions, Deena will
also analyze the Bible's part in the
Deena's second lecture takes on a
very different topic while still
addressing questions of power and
influence. "Babel or Pentecost: The
Language Controversy Facing Com-
monwealthThird Wrid Writers" will
take place in the General Classroom
Building, Room 1014, on April 14.
Self-identity will be a central focus for
Deena here as he explicates how col-
onization has created fragmented lin-
guistic cultures within the Third
"The language of controversy in
Africa is of great magnitude and visi-
bility Deena explains. "The central
argument is whether African writers
should use the colonizers' languages
or the native languages
Using language as a basis for iden-
tity, Deena will illustrate how such
fragmentation has affected the litera-
ture written in the indigenous lan-
guages of the various Third World
Deena is a well-established scholar
who has demonstrated time and time
again his academic expertise. He has
several forthcoming articles set to be
published in journals such as the
College Language Association Journal and
The Commonwealth Review. His soon-to-
bc-released book is entitled
Decolonisation of Colonial ami Canonical
Marginalizatum in the Works of Writers of
Color, a work that further demon-
strates Deena's devotion to his pro-
fession and its cause.

Well, dear friends, today we're going address two different
topics that are near and dear to our hearts. First, Jay will give
you up-to-date info about the ongoing saga of his upcoming
dialogue with Paul Edwards, downtown club and local band
manager, about the state of the local music scene. After that.
Dale will consider the problems that plague the local movie
theaters and possible ways to resolve them. So su back and
relax, it should be a fun romp. Take it away. Jay.
Hi, Jav here, to tell vou about my rocky relationship with
the aforementioned Paul Edwards. In case you missed it,
here's the skinny. I wrote a couple of articles this year derid-
ing downtown for not providing Greenville enough choice in
our local music scene. Paul spoke out against my point-of-
view and invited me to join him on WZMB to discuss our dif-
ferences. I said that would be great, name the time and place
and I'd be there. This is the answer I received:
Thanks inches for the prompt and enthusiastic reply. I have made
contact with WZMB and they tell me that Thursday, April 3 would be
a great day for a friendly little debate. I would Hie to, with your am-
sent, get both The East Carolinian and WZMB to do a Bait-adver-
tismg for this event. If what we are trying to accomplish is to stimulate
the minds I think getting as many minds as possible to listen m would
only be appropriate.
On a separate note, I would'appreciate copies of the first two arti-
i ties that set me off"so that I may further twislyour thoughts and'words
to use them against you. The band'did'in fact use my copies of your arti-
cles as I predicted. I'll keep them away from these copies. Besides, fax
paper is kind of rough if you get my drift. I am looking forward to
publicly debating you, and I suggest you show up with more than just
sunshine management group
Not wanting to ignore him, I immediately sent this mis-
Thursday, April 3 sounds great to me, too. Just one question. What
time will this take place? I assume you booked The Roots Rock
Show for its unbiased audience, but what do I know. CNot much" is
the punchline to insert here.) Regardless, I need a time. Thanks.
About your question towards advertising, I wouldn't feel right gio-
ing you consent to use my name without knowing the way in which it
wouldbe used, so I'll have to nix the promotion idea unless I get some
more info about it. Rest assured, though I will be addressing the issue
again m the paper andwilldefimtety inrbtde it in the It's Showtime
calendar, so word will get out.
Included'are the two articlesofmmeyou requested. If you need any-
more heip, please let me know. I'd be glad to give you all"the assistance
Until next time.
That was a week ago, and I have yet to receive an answer
to my request for a time. If I don't receive one soon, I'll sim-
ply assume that the on-air meeting has been called off.
However, if I get notice of a time by today, I'll include it in
Thursday's paper. Keep watching this space. Now over to
Hi, gang. Jay and I have been blasting the local movie
scene for quite some time, and we arc not alone with our crit-
icisms. While some people have insisted that the local the-
ater chain is not to blame for lousy cinematic choices, I say it
I am not an idiot; I know that movies are all about mak-
ing money. But who has come to the conclusion that movies,
like Sylvester Stallone's Dayhght and Steven Segal's The
Glimmer Man are making money? Both of those films were
critical and commercial disasters all across the U.S. I'm will
ing bet anything that Greenville was no exception.
I've seen many, many films since moving here in 93, and"
I know for a fact that local residents are not flocking to much
of the mainstream waste that our theaters repeatedly show:
The audience turn-out for films like Judge Dredd'and Escape
From LA. were laughable (as were the films themselves)
Meanwhile, I also know for a fact that films like Pulp Fiction.
and Sling Blade have pulled in sizable crowds. We got Sling
Blade four months after it was released in Raleigh, and still 25
people paid full price for one particular showing. (This num-
ber was counted by a reliable source. It is not debatable). As-
much as I enjoyed The Devil's Own, there weren't more thatL
25 people at the showing I attended. My point? You can't �
blindly say that Greenville residents only want mainstream

Ford and Pitt add strength, intelligence to The DeviTs Own
ASSISTANT I.IFRSTYLE EDITOR
learning polished, veteran actors with
newer talent seems to be the "in"
thing for Hollywood now. Within the
last year, we have seen such teams as
Morgan Freeman and Keanu Reeves in
the disastrous Cham Reaction and Al
Pacino and Johnny Depp in the criti-
cally praised Dannie Brasco.
Moves like this, on Hollywood's
part, make sense from a commercial
standpoint. Get the respected pro to
pull in a more mature audience and
team that pro with fresh (and sexually
appealing) meat to attract the younger
audience. While a business move like
this may look nice on paper, the result-
ing product is not always as impressive
as it should be.
The latest big budget film featur-
ing a generational tag team is director
Alan J. Pakula's The DeviTs Own, which
has old pro Harrison Ford trading
punches with sex symbol Brad Pitt.
While the finished product (which
was plagued by serious production
problems) is not as explosive as one
may hope for or expect, this film is an
intriguing shades-of-grey character
study powered by exemplary perfor-
mances from its two leads.
The story centers around Rory
Devaney (Pitt), an IRA revolutionary
who escapes from Ireland to America
in an effort to purchase weapons for
his cause. Ar. American sympathizer
manages to secure Rory a fake job and
a place to stay - the home of Tom
O'Meara (Ford), an Irish-American
cop who is willing to help anyone from
his ancestral birthplace.
Of course, Tom is clueless as to
Rory's intentions. Tom and his family
both see Rory as a kind, admirable

The film's premise makes for an
intelligent thriller, and that's what The
DeviTs Own turns out to be. As opposed
to working at a dizzying speed filled
with one action moment after another.
The DeviTs Own paces itself and allows
for character development.
This is a good and bad thing,
though. Many may find this film too
slow, and many more may find it too
melodramatic. The dialogue, for
instance, is blotched with purposeful
lines that sound hokey when spoken.
Rory stresses not once but twice to not
expect a happy ending. "This is not an

Much of the film's flaws may flow
from the fact that too many fingers
were dipped into the screenplay. (At
least three writers were involved with
the script.) Both Ford and Pitt have
complained about starting production
without a finished script, and the film
suffers as a result. The DeviTs Own
struggles to balance its star power, but
it doesn't quite succeed. The first half
seems to focus more on Pitt, while the
second half emphasizes Ford. If the
writers could have found a way to
incorporate both characters into the
film without playing favorites, then a
more solid story may have resulted.
While I'm sure the writers meant

Despite a troubled production and a lackluster script, the two stars manage to retain some entertainment value in the film.

conflicted by the bond they form, the

that transcends it all.

expert on religious cults.
She cited Jonestown, Guyana,
where more than 90 followers of Jim
Jones committed mass suicide in
1978. She mentioned Waco, Texas,
where 78 Branch Davidtans perished
in 1993, burning with theit leader
rather than surrender to the federal
agents who surrounded them.
Then there were the 74 members
of the Order of the Solar TcmpSe, who
believed that suicide would transport
them to a new life on a planet called
Sirius. They killed themselves over
the last three years in Europe and
Not all mass suicides occur among
cult groups. One example: Masada,
where hundreds of Jews committed
suicide rather than submit to Roman
That is regarded as noble in a
sense Saltzman said.
But recent mass suicides occurred
among groups under the sway of a
charismatic leader whose followers
had lost the strength to act or think
"No matter what you call it, it's a
cult said Patricia Pina, executive
director of the Hotline Help Center
Inc a suicide-prevention center.
"Once they're involved with a group
like that, it's very hard to get them
out. These are people looking for
answers in all the wrong places
H. Newton Malony, senior profes-
sor of psychology at Fuller Theological
Seminary in Pasadena, agrees.
However, he notes that while we
may not belive the Heaven's Gate
theology, that they were going to the
big mothership in the sky, in the end,
"Not one of us can disprove it, can
There are many types of cults,
some benign, others more deadly, says
Dr. L.J. West, UCLA psychiatrist and
leading cult expert.
"The ones that concern us are
those we call 'totalist' cults Vfest
said. "Characteristically, they require
some extravagant commitment to an
idea or a person who fanatically brooks
What happens in these cases, he
says, is that the organization uses
"coercive techniques or insidious
manipulation" of members until they
surrender their identities.
However, he notes that in no way
should one consider that a person has
to be "a nut" to be a cult member
"That is entirely incorrect. They are
usually perfectly normal until the cult
forces stresses on them
The Heaven's Gate group is a good
example that "throws the brainwash-
ing theory of cults out the window
says Malony. Reports indicate that
Heaven's Gate members, as with
other cult followers, went in with
their eyes wide open.
Kevin Lewis, assistant professor of
biblical studies at Biola University in
La Mirada, notes the UFO connection
to the Heaven's Gate group, and the
fact they committed suicide to find
salvation, is not unusual among cults.
One of the biggest UFO groups,
Uranna, has been in existence since
1955. They have a 2,000-pasc bible
that purportedly was revealed by a
Lewis, who is writing a book on
UFO cults, said that the Heaven's
Gate group is like many such cults in
that it has taken a mish-mash of reli-
gious learnings from many traditions
to come up with its often-confusing
He notes the group at once
decried Jesus and Christianity as
Luciferians, and then turned around
and said that one of the reasons they
felt they were making their exit from
Earth was because of the scriptural
warnings in Matthew and Luke.

If there is a tact in this issue, the
fact is that our local theaters (which
arc all monopolized by Carmike
Cinemas) won't take chances. All of
my friends don't even bother to check
what films are playing in town
because the assumption is if we want
to see most good films we have to go
to Raleigh. Most everyone I talked to
didn't even realize Sting Blade was
playing in Greenville. In fact, they
were shocked to discover this. News
of its arrival was spread more by word
I've heard the arguments that
Greenville's demographics won't
allow us to get many films. I say that
this is a lame excuse for not trying.

thankfully). Dave Thompson's two
blues rock numbers arc by far the

praised by critics all over the country

Buccaneer all summer? This is just
another example of a missed opportu-
nity to experiment and see how well
certain films will play in Greenville.
What it all boils down to is that our
local theater owner is a lazy business-
man who is out for a quick buck.
Instead of putting forth energy and
money into his business (I won't even
talk about the poor quality of the
actual theaters), he would rather
monopolize the market and leave us,
the moviegoers, with little or no
I call out for one of three things to
happen. Either support all indepen-
dent and foreign films that happen to
play in Greenville, or stop paying
money for the siush that is offered us,
or (better yet) take whatever action is
necessary to get a competing theater
in town. If we, as unsatisfied con-
sumers, don't take action to let our
frustrations Ik heard, then we might
as well just shut up.
I agree, Dale. What we need all
around is choice. By not giving
Greenville choices, or, worse yet, by
not telling people about the few
songs on the album. Despite that, the
songs are still quite good, showing off
Thompson's considerable guitar gifts
and his tear-inducing voice, similar to
that of Otis Rush's.

We're already thought of as back-

actively change that image?
But we feel as if we're flogging a
dead horse here, so we'll finally shut
up about the topics. However, we
don't think you should. If you feel
strongly about these issues, then we
encourage you to contact the the-
aters, the clubs, the artists, or us for
that matter. Be active.
However, we understand that
some people may lie perfectly happy
with that country bumpkin label, that
negative perception. We've got the
makings of a really great stereotype

Bazluki saw firsthand the need for athletic train-
ers. He went to a summer camp that helped edu-
cate potential trainers. The time he spent there
helped him decide what he wanted to do.
Bazluki's training duties lie mainly with the
men's basketball team. He attends every practice
and game, whether at home or away. He also acts
as trainer for most male sports, including soccer,
golf, track, baseball and swimming. The only
men's sport he doesn't train is football, due to the
time constraints his schedule places on him.
"College athletics are very exciting and it's just
as exciting to work with the teams Bazluki said
Bazluki is always there for ECU's athcietcs.
and works to keep them
healthy and in proper shape to
keep chem in the game, where
they're needed. However,
sometimes they do get hurt or
sick, and it is Bazluki's respon-
sibility to work with them until
they have recovered and are
ready to take the field.
His other duty at ECU is
teaching, and Bazluki enjoys
seeing his students learn just
as much as he enjoys training atheletes.
"It's very gratifying when other people in your
own profession see and recognize the things that
you do Bazluki said. "It's one thing for people
you work with every day to appreciate your
skills, but for people outside to recognize it
makes it more worthwhile
Intramural bowling champs crowned
David Graham takes Dominion Seniors
I SAN ANTONIO (AP) - David Graham had the kind of finish golfers dream
f Tied for the lead with John Jacobs, Graham dropped in a 16-foot eagle putt
on the 18th hole Sunday to win the $800,000 Southwestern Bell Dominion
The eagle gave Graham a 3-under-par 69 and a total of 10-under 206 for the
tournament. That was one stroke better than Jacobs, who missed a 10-footer on
! No. 18 that would have forced a playoff.
The eagle earned the 50-year-old Graham $120,000 and his second Senior
I PGA Tour victory of the year.
"We realized we needed some birdies on the back nine Graham said. "I hit
i my best drive and iron shot all day at 18. Length made a difference, especially
1 on the last hole
Graham, who started off the day at 7-under, parred the first 10 holes. An 8-
foot putt on the par-5 11th gave him his first birdie of the day.
I The (10-20 mph) wind caused us to be cautious on the 'ront nine said
' Graham, aaecond-year senior who won the GTE Classic on Feb. ,b in Lutz, Fla.
Tied for third place two srrokes behind were John Bland" and Raymond
Bland started at 3-under for the day before rallying to 8-undcr with five
birdies. Floyd went to 7-under with a birdie on No. 14, but parred the next
' three holes before a birdie on No. 18.

The intramural bowling playoffs
recently came to a close with champi-

"Strikers" emerged victorious and
completed the season with an overall
record of 3-1. All of the top nine aver-

outstanding average of 137 while

CINCINNATI (AP) - Of all the
national championships won by the
Tennessee women, this latest was
clearly the most improbable.
It was won by a team that lost its
starting point guard to a torn knee lig-
ament in October. By a ream that was
10-6 in early January and appeared to
be beaten down by a rugged schedule.
By a team rhat finished fifth in the
Southeastern Conference and looked
as if it had no chance to even mate it
to the Finai Four.
But somehow, some way, the Lady
Vols pulled it off.
When a team has Pa; Summitt as
its coach and Chamique Holdsclaw as
its go-to player, nothing, it seems, is
out of reach.
Tennessee won its second consec-

tory over Old Dominion.

Connecticut in the Midwest Regional
finals to get to the Final Four,
knocked off Notre Dame in the semi-
finals, then broke Old Dominion's 33-
game winning streak with a brilliant
defensive game plan conjured up by
Summitt and an equally brilliant
offensive game by Holdsclaw.
"This year was a tremendous
blessing for me, for our players and
our staff in that we faced a lot of
adversity Summitt said. "We had
injuries. We had tough losses.
"But we never had attitude prob-
lems that we could not move on from
immediately, and this is a group that
will always be very special to me per-
sonally as well as professionally
Holdsclaw, more than anyone,
helped make it that way. She scored
14 of her game-high 24 points in the
second half Sunday night and was in
charge when Tennessee put the game
away at the end.
After Old Dominion took a 49-47
lead on Amber Eblin's 3-pointer,
Holdsclaw scored 10 points, handed
out two assists and blocked a shot in
the finai 6:48. Old Dominion (34-2)
had no answer for that, leaving
Holdsclaw 6-0 in championship
She won four state championships
at Christ the King High School in
New York City and now has two
national titles in two years of college.
"I felt I let the pressure get to me

Why not gymnastics:
When football players are tackled to tlie grotnd, there is always a chance that someone is
going to get hurt. And it's not uncommon f r baseball players to walk away from the plate
with a black eye. In a facility such as the Si.udea Recreation Center, where students play
intense games of basketball, work their bodies to the max and even climb up a rock wall,
there are plenty of opportunities for injuries. So, why is use of the gymnastics room in
Christenbury limited to only those students enrolled in gymnastics classes?
Not many of ECU's students are comporting about the variety of activities offered by
Recreational Services. However, some are not able to take full advantage of the athletic
facilities on campus. Many students are interested in using the gymnastics room but are not
able to due to liability reasons. , j , ,
Only those students who are taking the structured gymnastics class (which is only
offered at two allotted times during the week) are able to use the room. This is unfortunate
for those students who are not majoring in athletic-related fields because many students do
not have room in their schedules for deceives.
In the past, gymnastics was seen more commonly in collegiate athletics than it is today.
Many universities have done without the sport due to lacking athletic budgets and difficul-
ties in recruiting. The typical gymnast hits his or her peak at the age of nine or ten, so find-
ing 18-year-old competitors who are still displaying the potential to learn new skills can
sometimes be difficult. .Additionally, the sport was known to bring on some of the harshest
injuries ever experienced by athletes.
It is understandable that many students may not be aware of the proper techniques that
should be used in learning and performing gymnastics skills. However, some students who
have experience in the sport feel their recreational interests are limited due to prohibited
use of the facility. .
It would be unreasonable for students to expect the room to be open at their conve-
nience, but a few hours each week would be more than enough time for those with a back-
ground in the sport to touch up on old skills and experiment with new ones. Injuries could
be prevented by allowing only those students who pass a performance test to use the room.
This would provide protection for the athletic department and would permit veterans of the
sport to do what they love to do.

Elkington swings to victory at
The Players Championship
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP)
- The rough had never been higher.
The field had never been stronger.
Steve Elkington had only one expla-
nation for his seven-stroke victory in
The Players Championship.
He had never played better.
Elkington won his first major in
the PGA Championship in 1995,
when he closed with a 64 and beat
Colin Montgomerie in a playoff with
a 25-foot birdie putt.
He entered the week with seven
PGA Ibur victories, winning The
Players Championship six years ago,
and twice taking the elite season-
opening Tournament of Champions.
But in the richest event on tour,
against a field that included the top
50 players in the world rankings for
the first time anywhere, Elkington
amazed even himself.
"I'm just sort of sitting here try-
ing to explain what it means to win
this tournament by seven shots he
said Sunday after shooting his fourth
round in the 60s to finish at 16-
"I mean, I played that good he
said. "I basically blew away the best
field we've ever had. And i didn't
know if I was capable
How could he not?
Every time he went to the prac-
tice range before his round at the
Stadium Course on the TPC at
Sawgrass, he hit the ball pure. He
never took more than 30 putts in any
round, including just 24 in Sunday's
round of 69.
Even Saturday night, when asked
whether he could turn a two-stroke
lead into a wire-to-wire victory, he
said he was playing well and there
was no reason that would change.
And it didn't.
While the rest of the field was
trying to negotiate the swirling
winds and rough that grew as high as
6 inches, Elkington played so well
that the rest of the field quit watch-
ing the scoreboard.
"It would have to be an act of
God for me to catch him after about
14 or 15 said Scott Hoch, who fin-
ished second by making an 8-foot
birdie putt on No. 17.
"Whenever he gets his putter
going, he can shoot some low scores
- and he's not going to back off said
Loren Roberts, who also shot a 69 to
move into third at 8-under 280.
Elkington won $630,000, which
moved him to the top of the money
list with $984,400 in just (bur starts
this year. He won Doral three weeks
ago, making him the first player
since Tom Kite in 1989 to win two
tournaments on the Florida swing.
"I think I have a good chance of
having a really good year the way
things are going for me Elkington
He looked relaxed sitting in a
high-back chair, about as comfort-
able as he looked on a Stadium
Course that yielded an average score
of 74.9 on the final day.
But Elkington was a bottle of
nerves Sunday morning, waking at
6:30 a.m. and looking for something
to kill time for eight hours.
"I sat in the room and putted for
three hours he said.
He led Hoch by only two strokes
to start the day and left himself a 5-
foot putt for par on the first hole.
Elkington knocked it in and was off
to the races.
"I was going to have to face that
putt sometime during the round
he said. "It might have well as been
the first one
He made a 15-footer for par on
No. 4, where Hoch made double
bogey to widen the gap to four
strokes. Five other times, Elkington
made par putts of at least 4 feet to
Keep his momentum.
"I saw a fine player, if not a great
player, out there today Hoch said
after going head-to-head with
Elkington. "The big thing is he
made all his putts. If he would have
missed all the putts I did and I
would have made all the putts he
did, then we might have had a good
horse race going
Elkington saved another par with
a 10-foot putt on the par-5 16th.
With a seven-stroke lead, the island
green at No. 17 became a lot more
"All I had to do is touch land and
I'm in Elkington said.
Defending champion Fred
Couples did better than that. He
aced the 17th to finish at 3-under
285. Nick Faldo was at 288 after a
72, beating playing partner Tiger
Woods by one stroke in their first
round of competitive golf.
Greg Norman, in only his second
PGA Ibur start of the year, shot a 79
and finished 6 over par.
"The thrill I've got here is the
way I've played my golf to beat this
field Elkington said. "Everyone has
got to take notice. You know, 'He
just blew everyone away

Summitt has more than any other
major college basketball coach, men
or vomen, except UCLA's John
Wooden, who won 10.
"John Wooden is safe for a long
time Summitt said with a smile.
There were no smiles on the Old
Dominion side. An emotional, free-
spirited team, Old Dominion was
taken out of its game by an aggres-
sive, physical Tennessee defense
that concentrated on containing All-
America point guard Ttcha
Penicheiro and preventing the ball
from going inside.
Penicheiro, who scored 25 points
in Old Dominion's 83-72 victory over
Tennessee on Jan. 7, was scoreless in
the first half Sunday night and fin-
ished with more turnovers (11) than
Indicative of how the game went,
Penicheiro threw the ball away on
Old Dominion's final possession
with two seconds left and went to

basketball team is, we were definite-
Despite its problems, Old
Dominion still managed to keep the
game from becoming a rout. The
Lady Monarchs turned the ball over
on their first lour possessions in
falling behind 6-0, and they trailed
27-11 after Jolry hit a 3-pointer with
5:57 left in the fiist half.
Old Dominion finished the half
on a high because Aubrey Eblin
banked in a running 30-foot 3-point-
er at the buzzer, drawing the Lady
Monarchs to 34-22. They got the
lead three times in the second half
before being done in by Holdsclaw.
