Survey raises question of gender equality in UNC
Rnne? from a survey on gender equality con-
ducted by a committee at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill prompted TEC
to look into gender equity among all 16 uni-
versities within the UNC-system, including
Sarah Manekin, chairwoman of the Human
Relations Committee at the University of
North Carolina-Chapel Hill, conducted a sur-
vey and perceived a lack of gender equity in
the faculty. The committee plans to circulate a
petition expressing its concerns about gender
issues throughout classrooms, residence halls,
and Greek houses before sending it to
Chancellor Michael Hooker.
"We are not disputing the study, but are
rather showing our support for gender equity
in the faculty and in the faculty salaries,
Manekin said. .
As of ftll 1995, the number of full-time fac-
ulty in all North Carolina Universities totalled
8,498. 5,790 males dominate the total number
of faculty while women tarried with 2,708.
The numbers showing the academic ranks
for'males and females revealed that women
across the UNC-system consistently landed
the least desirable jobs. At N.C. State
University, for example, the number of male
professors was 591 while the number of female
professors was only 51. Appalachian had 205
male professors and 45 female professors.
UNC-Chapcl Hill had 680 male professors
and 105 females.
In summary, men employed by the univer-
sities of North Carolina outnumbered women
by 2337 to 373
in the rank of
1664 to 738 in
the position of
1151 to 837 in

cent of the
faculty, men have a tremendous lead in the
precentagc of faculty in the highest academic
rank of orofessor. Of ECU's professors, 86.5
percent are men and 13.5 are women.

response from males when jobs are adver-

HOUSING AND CONSUMATORY ISSUES
ECU students who began paying for the new Student
Recreation Center before they could use it will now have to
pay an access fee to use the facilities this summer.
iw students enrolled in summer school, the fees are
included in their tuition. However, students not enrolled in
summer school will be required to pay $60 or $30 per summer
session to use the new recreation center.
"We're trying to accommodate students who may or may
not be in summer school but have been paying regular fees
during the fall and spring semesters Nance Mize, director ot
recreation services, said. �
Seniors graduating in May will also be able to purchase the
summer pass for $60. They will have this privilege until Aug.
1, when they are considered alumni and are required co pay
the alumni membership fee of $240 per year.
After a student pays for their summer pass, they will
receive a membership card similar to the staff membership
cards with an expiration date.
The Rec Center will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. dunng
both summer sessions. Before and after the sessions, it will
operate under its breakholiday hours of 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The facility is planning to continue to operate all ot the
regular services, including aerobic classes during the summer,
as well as planning special events.
"We're working with student focus groups to poll them to
see what special events they would like to have in the sum-
mer Mize said. ,
Though in the past summer programs have failed to pro-
duce much student participation, Mize is hopeful that with
the new facility summer programs will tlounsh.
"We are already planning to have pool parties centered
around the outdoor pool Mize said.
The outdoor pool will have its grand opening April 10 in
conjunction with the recreation center's Fiesta Night.
The pool hours are not finalized yet; Mize expects it to be
open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for "prime-time sunning.
The outdoor pool is 30 by 40 feet and is suitable for leisure
swimming, water vollevball and water basketball. There is
also a large deck surrounding the pool for sunbathing.
Mize said the recreation center staff is looking forward to
seeing student utilization of the facilities this summer, bven
if the utilization numbers are low, Mize said the recreation
center will not close this summer under any circumstances.
Several vouth sport programs and adventure programs
have also been planned for the new facility. However, these
programs will not interfere with member usage of the recre-
ation center. . .
"There is a lot of opportunity for everyone now that Iw.

Students reap benefits of mentorships, peer involvement
MINORITY STUDENT ISSUES
Over the past years the Office of Minority Student Affairs has
sought help for all minority students to achieve academic and
social success at ECU. Recently the department of minorities
affairs and the Ledonia Wright African-American Cultura
Center have created a minority Peer Mentoring Program for all
The program is designed to aid the minonty students by
providing mentors with academic support, cultural sustenance,
bi-weeklv tutorials, answers to academic and social adjustment
challenges and systematized referrals of minonty students to
appropriate university support resources.
After going through the program the mentees will have
received social and academic support, along with a lasting
knowledge of college living. .
To be a peer mentor one is selected on the basis ot academ-
ic merit, leadership abilities and must be at least a snohomore
student with one completed year of school at ECl.
After meeting all qualifications the peer mentors are
assigned to approximately 5-8 students, with whom they will
work for the entire school year, bi- weekly on a one hourbas.s
Normally, the peer mentor program w.ll hire 30-45 students
who will begin their training prior to their first meeting with
the incoming freshman. Some of their training includes learn-
ing about the location of specific school resources and being
able to answer typical questions raised by ��W�5
Once rheit training is complete the annual ECl Minority
Visitation Day program marks the beginning introduction to the

then they give campus tours to all potential ECl students.
Students are then afforded the opportunity to � .fj

"Most of the students who come to.visit ECLare also look-
ing at other universities as Carolina. Duke, and A& T andUe
hope this will be a strategy to make up their minds, said Peer
Mentor Director Tativ Benson Clayton.

Strawberries in several states could be tainted
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Thousands of schoolchildren across the nation may
have been exposed to the hepatitis A virus by eating frozen strawberries
that were shipped to North Carolina and 16 other states, with much of the
fruit ending up in school cafeterias.
So far the onlv reported illnesses linked to the tainted berries are in
Michigan where about 151 students and teachers have been sickened,
apparently after eating strawberries provided at lunch, federal authorities
said Tuesdav. ,
In Los Angeles, as many as 9,000 youngsters and adults may have been

Commissioners cut money for Arts council
CHARLOTTE (AP) - Mecklenburg County commissioners today voted 5-
4 to cut county money to arts groups that offer "exposure to perverted
forms of sexuality
The resolution will eliminate county funding for the Arts & Science
Council which this fiscal year will receive $2.5 million to distribute to arts
groups. Beginning July 1, commissioners will consider requests from arts
groups on a case-by-case basis.
The resolution would deny county money to art agencies that promote,
advocate or endorse behaviors, lifestyles and values that seek to undermine
and deviate from the value and societal role of the traditional American
familv j i
For some commissioners, that includes works depicting gays and les-
bians such as the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Angels in America: A Gay
Fantasia on National Themes which the Charlotte Repertory Theatre
performed last spring. It also would include "Six Degrees of Separation,
which the theater company opens April 9.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco knows how to do stupid right.
People dressed in pink tutus, bunny ears, Santa Claus suits and hiking
boots strutted Tuesday in the 19th Annual Saint Stupid's Day Parade.
Tony, alias 'Y-Not' (Tony spelled backwards), showed up in a one-piece
purple fur jumpsuit. Purple Haze he called it.
The paraders marched, drummed and kazooed their way through the
city's financial district - paying homage to everything from comet "Hail-
Bopp" to the Federal Reserve Bank.
The April Fool's Day tradition is sponsored by the self-proclaimed First
Church of the Last Laugh, which has little discernible reason for existing
other than the midday march.
Mock Cattle Drive Sends Cows Running Everywhere
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Perhaps a steak house was not the brightest of
destinations for a mock cattle drive.
Mbre than 100 cattle ran amok Tuesday in downtown Kansas City as rid-
ers attempted to steer them to the Hereford House, which specializes in
T-bones, sirloins and ribs.
The cattle drive was sponsored by a local radio station as a fun way to

Professor uncovers mysrery, meaning behind New Age Movement
Many people do not know the mean-
ing behind the New Movement and
its philosophies. Critical questions
about the movement, its positions
and its effects on society will be
dicussed and answered tonight.
Tonight, in Great Rooms One and
Two in Mendenhall Student Center,
a lecture will be given on the Bible
and the New Age Movement.
Dr. Seodial Deena, from the
department of English, will be
answering a lot of questions people
have about the New .Age and com-
pare it to the teachings in the Bible.
He wants to educate people about
the New Age so we will not be vul-
nerable to its teachings.
He uses examples of the cults
that followed one leader to the trag-
ic endings of their lives. The reason
for this is because they believe the
new age of religion they created was
the absolute truth.
"Satan comes to humans and
makes them think they are in touch
with God" Deena said. "In most
cults they have ended in suicide,
because they believe that to lie
absent from the body is to be in the
presence of God, which Paul spoke
about in the Bible. Most New Age
teachings follow rhe Bible but take
things out of context
Deena will be using some scrip-
tures from the Bible to some of his
points across. He also will be some
information from the book. The

The basis behind this lecture is
to use the Bible against the New Age
teachings. Then people will be able

Researchers announce discovery of cancer "switch" Q3
NEW YORK (AP) - Scientists have
isolated a substance they believe
triggers breast cancer and whose dis-
covery could lead to valuable
advances in early detection and
treatment of the disease.
Researchers at the State
University of New York-Stony Brook
said they found that the molecule
mitogen-activated protein kinase, or
MAP kinase, exists at levels five to
20 times higher in women wirh
breast cancer than in normal breast

Dr. Craig C. Malbon, vice dean of
Stony Brook's University Medical
Center and head of the research
team, said Tuesday that migration of
MAP kinase into the nucleus of a
cell signals the cell to begin replicat-
ing itself, causing cancer.
Previous research has shown that
MAP kinase signals cells to prolifer-
ate, Malbon said. The new research
established a link between extreme-
ly high levels of the molecule and
the growth and spread of breast can-
cer, he said.
Elevated levels of MAP kinase
also were found in the lymph nodes

Various rumors have also been
called into TEC involving the med-
ical condition of Carlyle after the

"The guy is alive and well, and
the situation was handled as quickly
of breast cancer patients whose can-
cer spread to other parts of their
body; making the molecule a marker
for those so-called metastatic can-
cers, he said.
The discovery could allow doc-
tors to test for high levels of MAP
kinase in breast cells, allowing
detection of breast cancer even
before noticeable tumors develop,
It also raises the possibility of
introducing special molecules to
cancerous cells designed to "turn
off" the MAP kinase cell.
Such targeted treatment in cases
that are detected early can be
preferable to the more scattershot
approaches of radiation therapy or
chemotherapy, Malbon said.

Has this and other questions like,
for example, dining problems and dorm

out an election info section with: the
various candidates and their stances on
issues; debates; ways to contact the
candidates (for questions); and where,
when and how to vote.
This would seem like an obvious
solution to previous low voter turnout,
and it is a wonder why this was not
really done before. If we, as students,
desire to improve our school and our
SGA (which seriously needs improving
presently) then we should all partici-
pate in the elections and cast our votes

The Make Up
. JAY MYERS
Imagine my surprise when I walked
into CD Alley the other day and
found that not one, but two Make Up
CDs, After Dark and SoUndVerOe, had
Seen released within a few short
weeks of each other. After listening to
and loving their first release
(Destination: Love, Livt! At Cold Rice)
last year, f jumped at the chance to
check out their new releases. For
those of you who have not been intro-
duced to the bombastic funk gem
that is the Make Up, let me give you
This may sound strange, but the
Make Up are like an old science fic-
tion story. One of those stones where
they pose questions like "What if the
Allies had lost tie war?" or "What if
Kennedy hadn't been assassinated?"

Christmas film favorite It's A
WbmkrfalUfe starring Jimmy Stewart,
or the "Minor, Mirror" episode of
Star Trek where the crew enters an
alternate universe and Spock has a

I'll explain. The Make Up answers
the question "What if Prince had
begun his career in a punk band
instead of going into pop and soul
music?" The Make Up has the ability
to perfectly combine elements of the
paisley one with punk without

doesn't taste quite like Starflyer 59,
but its pretty dam close.
Starflyer 59 is the brainchild of
boy wonder Jason Martin, who grew
up on both the schlock and the sub-
lime music of the late 70s and early
'80s. Starflyer is also a Christian rock
band, and the surprising thing about
them is that they're an exceptional
band. Unlike fellow God-rockers, like
the cheesy Jars of Clay or the very
unoriginal DC Talk, Starflyer 59 have
been creating some very powerful and
spiritual rock n' roll for a little over
Since the Christian music scene is
littered with trash, the appearance of
a genuinely good act is a major event,
something definitely worth being
chronicled. While cheese-ballad
bands like 4Him churn out more hon-
eyed smarm and posers like the
Newsboys continue to ape U2,
Starflyer 59 have been recording
some solid albums for three years
now, the latest of which is Amentum.
The bands first two records, each
titled Starflyer 59 and differentiated
only by their covers (the first was sil-
ver, the second gold), represented
the musical and emotional journeys of
Martin and, unlike other religious
acts, were rife with honesty and
power. Both of these were more like
solo projects for Martin, who played
guitar, bass and drums on marry of
those songs. With Americami, Martin
has been joined by two permanent
mates who have allowed Starflyer to
do something it hasn't to date: sound
like a band.
The two additions are drummet
Wayne Everett and bassist Eric
Campuzano. Though Martin is cred-
ited with writing all of the songs on
Americami, the tunes have a much
more organic feel to them, and the

to go. It was something that I had to

tickets and in the process I managed
to snag an interview with Piter Criss,
the drummer for the rock legends.
After some technical difficulties,
(a snowstorm in New York had
wreaked havoc on the phone lines)
we were up and going.
�Pat Reid: How's the tour going?
Is everything going good for you guys?
�Peter Criss: Everything's going
great. We're in New "fork, we had a

�PR: Everybody's still getting
�PC: Yeah, we wouldn't have
rescheduled if we weren't We're
doing these other cities because we
passed them by, we felt bad 'cause
everybody didn't get a chance to see
us. So we rescheduled for our fans, to
let them sec us we play stadiums
up until Jury 5th. And after July 5th
we're going back in the studio and do
another album. Now we definitely
have to be getting along to go do that!
And then we plan on going back out
in 98 so yeah, we're getting along

release another greatest hits (Greatest

PHOTO COURTESY OF NEW IMF. CINEMA
ASSISTANT LIFF.STYLE EDITOK
Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan has been repeatedly cited as the greatest
action film actor working today, and he definitely deserves this respected title.
Unlike the cliched" Hollywood heroes (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester
Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, etc.), Chan does not bore with oversized
guns and cornball one-liners. If anything, Chan has made the action genre (a
genre that is constantly choking on actors' egos, bloated budgets and formulaic
scripts) fun again.
While a typical Chan film may not exactly carry the intelligence of a Harrison
Ford or Sean Connery action vehicle, any action fan will not be bothered by this
fact. But of the fun of a Chan film revolves around its hokeyness, its silliness, its
Chan has been a huge box office draw in Hong Kong for a long time. There,
he is the king of cinema. In fact, he is the number one action star in the world.
His films consistently beat out American action films overseas. Despite his
astonishing success, Chan has been struggling to gain recognition here in the
States. His first stab at the American audience was in 1980 when he released The
Big Braid, which turned out to be a disappointing disaster. Instead of allowing
Chan to choreograph his own stunts and use his own stuntmen, the American
studio restrained Chan and tried to make him fit America's idea of what the
Asian hero should be like.
The Big Brawl was followed in '81 by a supporting role in the Burt Reynolds
racing epic, Gmnonball Rim, and, well, I don't need to say how bad a career move
With things looking grim in America, Chan returned to making Hong Kong
films where he had more control over his product.
Years and years went by and films were made, but mainstream America paid
little attention to Chan, mainly because they didn't know he was out there.
Then in 96, something clicked. Chan, who had been filming in such areas as
Canada and Australia (areas which allowed him to do his own stunts his way),
released Rumble m the Bronx in America. This film had already been a huge hit in
Hong Kong, and America proved to be no different. Rumble opened number one
at the American box office and gave Chan an established footing within the
Now, Chan is constantly being courted by Hollywood producers to work for
them. As great as this all may sound, Chan's career is now at a tricky crossroads.
If he goes totally mainstream with Hollywood, his films will suffer as a result
simply because he will not be allowed to do many of his own stunts, and the
stunts won't nearly be as spectacular.
However, Chan seems to have learned from his previous mistakes.
Reportedly, Chan's newest potential Hollywood project, an action flick with
Wesley Snipes entitled Confucius Brown, is suffering production problems
because the American studio wants to do things its way Trie studio would rather
put a gun in Chan's hand as opposed to wowing audiences with his physical
prowess. Rumor has it that Chan is not pleased. Chan wants total control over
his American films now, and he will not compromise. He hasn't forgotten his fail-
ures with the American system the first time around. If Hollywood is unwilling
to work with him, then he might have to resort to other options.
If Chan manages to film without interference from Hollywood studios, if he
can film in other countries and import his films, then all should be right with the
martial arts world.
A perfect example of how fun, exciting and mind boggling a Chan film can
be, when Chan is allowed to strut his stuff his own way, is his newest video
release, Supercop. Riding high off the success of Rumble, Supercop was re-released
in American theaters last year. It had originally played in select American the-
aters in 92 as PoBce Story III, and it has been floating around the bootleg video
market for some time. Now even a Greenville fan can enjoy this rollicking romp.
The plot of Supercop is, admittedly, ridicuious. Chan reprises his cop rate
from the PoBce Story series, but this time he is teamed up with a female partner
the amazing Michelle Khan. Together, they go undercover and battle a drug car-
tel lead by the infamous Mr Big. As far as plot and character development goes,
that's all you need to know. The thrusting force here is not deep storylines or
intense character studies; instead, the action, humor and stunts make Suptmp
a definitive Chan flick.
Chan performs all his own stunts here, and the result simply leaves the view-
er awestruck Chan broke several ribs making this film, and he's lucky that is aft
he hurt. Chan makes the likes of Steven Segal and Chuck Norris look like pam-
pered wimps by hanging from a flying helicopter, balancing on the edge of
speeding train, and performing some of the best martial arts sequences you can
find on celluloid.
But Chan is not the only astounding physical presence here. Michelle Khan
almost steals the show as Chan's partner. Her skills as a fighter are on Chan's
level in every sense, and some of the film's best stunts are performed by hec Fn
one sequence, Khan is thrown from a speeding van onto the windshield of anoth-
er speeding vehicle. This is not a stunt person; it is Khan herself.
Director Stanley Tong (Rumble in the Bronx, Jackie Chads First Strike, uses his
camera to great effect, capturing the actors as they leap, fall, flip and crash alt
over the screen. While many die-hard Asian cinema fans prefer Chan to direct
his own films, Tong is a worthy and welcomed substitute.
Another saving grace for Supetrop, and Chan films in general, is the fact that
it doesn't take itself too seriously. Humor abounds, most of it slapstick In many
ways, Chan is the Asian equivalent of Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin, two
actors he greatly admires. Chan's ability to blend humor within the action is a
rare skill few have mastered, yet it is an essential ingredient that lifts Supetrop
several levels above karate crap like Chuck Norris' TV show Walker, Texas Ranger.
For all those new to the wacky world of Jackie Chan, be sure to keep the tape
playing during the end credits. A trademark of a Chan film is the fact that he
show� outtakes where accidents occurred during filming. In one outtakc, we wit-
ness Chan nearly falling off a running train. In another, we see Khan actually fall
off the car she was supposed to fall onto.
This is not Chan's way of exploiting the violence in his films. He does this to
illustrate that what he and his stunt crew do is dangerous and that people can,
and do, get hurt when performing these stunts. (Supposedly, Chan, as wdl as
anyone working on a Chan film, is blacklisted from all insurance companies in
Chan is an inspiration to any filmmaker or lover of film. He is a dedicated,
passionate man working in a difficult business. Chan once said that he would do
anything for his movies. Watching Supercop one would have to believe him.
While Supercop is not Chan's best work (check out the first rhhee Sury or
Drunken Master 2 for examples of his best), it still towers above most action films
put out by the American mainstream within the last decade.
If you're bored with Hollywood fluff, give -Asian fluff a shot. Chan is just one
of many great Hong Kong talents pushing cinema to the edge. But that opinion
can be saved for another article.

Issuing credit cards to
college students stirs debate
In recent years, some banks have
solicited students heavily with credit
card offers, beginning with high school
Estimates are that at least five mil-
lion college students have one or more
credit cards, and many are racking up
debts that might follow them for
years. Students are legal adults at age
18 and can sign contracts.
But is it ethical to market to them?
"I surely think there is an ethics
issue to be considered said Janet
.Adams, associate professor of manage-
ment at Kennesaw State University
"It's somewhat analogous to other
practices, such as tobacco companies'
targeting young people she said.
"Essentially, what they are doing is
trying to get people hooked at an early
age on the credit lifestyle
Nancy Judy, spokeswoman for the
American Bankers Association,
defended the practice of marketing to
"We are talking about adults, not
kids she said. "At 18 or older, college
students are adults, and although a
few get too many cards and get in
trouble, the others should not be
denied the benefits of credit

tive side" to the issue. They (the

steady rocker about the precarious bal-
ance between God and rock. Martin's
vocals are thin ribbons that almost get
lost in the messy noise pop. The lyrics
are minimalist, leaving much to be
defined by the mood of the music sur-
At times the melody is more evoca-
tive than the actual lyrics, bringing to
mind the sonic textures of My Bloody
Valentine. Take, for example, the
entire lyric to "The Hearttaken" "If

Until you go you know it's hard to

the lyrics lend themselves to be inter-
preted by the drone of the moog space
sounds, the echo-drenched guitar and
the marching rhythm. The effect is
subtle (a word that most Christian
bands ought to took up in the dictio-
nary) and severe.
"Harmony" bears strong resem-
blance to early Ocean Blue, or to the
happy concoctions of Blur, with some
spooky falsettos courtesy of Wryne
Everett and a lament about loss.
"AH You Want Arc The Things I
Need" is a smarting slap at the
Christian music industry. Martin's
voice is almost too sweet here, espe-
cially against the scorching guitar
crunch and rhythm behind it as he
"You Think You're Radical" is a cri-
tique of so-called "alternative culture"
set to an almost-country-westem slide
guitar and a slow jazz beat. The ballad
sounds like it was recorded in a high
school gym, or a canyon.
"The Translator" is a snappy cross
between Smashing Pumpkins and
Motley Crue. The song rocks, but in a
very glam sort of way (there's a tam-
bourine during the chorus) and the
decorative sounds Martin evokes from
his guitar are not quite Billy Corgan
trademarks. "The Boulevard" starts
off like a Nirvana single and folds back
into a more traditional Starflyer sound,
while somehow managing to sound
like a street in the seedier parts of
"Help Me When You're Gone" fea-
tures a gorgeous clean guitar and soft,
crisp mixing of Martin's shy-boy voice.
The soulful Rhodes organ in the back-
ground is smooth, very smooth.
The album closes out with the
Beatles-esque coda "Everyone -But
Me which has an imaginary Rirtgo
bouncing along to the rockabilly belt
and Martin's happy-go-lucky vocals.
It's a shame that Christian record
companies continue to market such
disappointments as Audio Adrenaline
or Jars of Clay. It is understandable
that the secular music business is all
about sales and money; but you'd
think that the Christians would be
aching to encourage superior work in
their artists. After all, they are sup-

Owner sees IRL as showcase for grassroots racing
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Greg Ellington is the kind of car owner Tony George
had in mind when he founded the Indy Racing League.
Long on enthusiasm, short of cash, Ellington got his start on the small ovals
of the Midwest but was unable to get any closer than the fringes of big-time rac-
ing until George's series came along.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner's break from Championship Auto
Racing Teams last year was designed to draw more participation from drivers
and owners, like Ellington, who might not otherwise get a chance.
"To me, he has put forth a series that will try to showcase more of a grass-
roots-type racing versus the exotic-ness that is CART now Ellington said.
"Drivers are more important in this series than they are in the other series.
"Everyone has similar equipment, and it's the driver and the preparation
that produce a winning effort, not money. .And chat's what's most attractive
Ellington has formed his own race team, Ellington Motorsports, based in
Lafayette, Ind and is making plans to run the full IRL circuit in 1998 with
Indy veteran Phil Krueger as the driver. He has landed several associate spon-
sorships but still is looking for a primary sponsor.
Without the IRL, he said, he wouldn't have gotten even this far.
"To be honest, I don't think I could afford CART he said. "You're looking
at some teams with budgets of $10 million. Some spend less than that but some
spend quite a bit more.
"The IRL is working, and if you caught the race last week in Phoenix, that's
exactly what it's all about. You had a guy (Jim Guthrie) who went, maybe not
from rags to riches but from rags to a little better rags. That's what the IRL is
Cleveland Indians pitcher charged with rape
CLEVELAND (AP) - A 26-year-old woman testified that Cleveland Indians
pitcher Jose Mesa struck her in the mouth with a bathroom door and fondled
her against her will in a motel room.
Cuyahoga County Judge Thomas Curran would not allow the woman to tes-
tify about what happened to her friend, whom prosecutors say was raped by
Mesa during a car ride from a nightclub.
Mesa is charged with rape under an Ohio law that expands the definition to
include penetration other than intercourse. He also is charged with two counts
of gross sexual imposition, felonious assault and theft.
NCAA championship doesn't get the ratings
NEW YORK (.AP) - The NCAA men's championship basketball game between
Arizona and Kenrucky drew a bigger television audience than last year, but still
was the third-lowest ever on CBS in 23 showings.
Monday night's game, won by Arizona 84-79 in overtime, drew an 18.9
Nielsen rating and a 31 share. That was up 3 percent from last year's 18.3 rat-
ing and 29 share for Kentucky's victory over Syracuse.
Tennessee's 68-59 victory over Old Dominion in the women's championship
game Sunday night drew a 4.0 rating on ESPN, meaning it was seen in 2.85 mil-
lion households. Last year's Georgia-Tennessee game had a 3.7 rating.
Robinson season opens with Montreal win; Yankees
(AP)-Montreal was the first team to win in 1997, befitting the start to a season
dedicated to Jackie Robinson.
The Expos scored the winning run in the ninth inning - on a bases-loaded
walk - to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in Montreal, the city where Robinson
briefly played before joining the Brooklyn Dodgers.
As a tribute to Robinson breaking the color barrier 50 years ago, special com-
memorative balls were used in each team's home opener Tuesday and players
and umpires wore Robinson patches on their uniforms.
Cincinnati's Deion Sanders made a personalized tribute to Robinson by hik-
ing up his pants like Robinson wore his. And in Seattle, Robinson's daughter,
Sharon, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Mariners played the
world champion New York Yankees.
Following a snowout in Boston, a snowstorm in New York and arctic tem-
peratures in both Detroit and Chicago last year, baseball adjusted its schedule
in an attempt to beat the cold weather.
.All five domes in the majors were used Tuesday, and every West Coast club
in both leagues was scheduled to begin the year at home this week.
Sheffield agrees to record $61 million deal
MLAMI (AP) - Gary Sheffield agreed today to the largest contract package in
baseball history, a $61 million, six-year extension with the Florida Marlins.
The contract runs from 1998 through 2003. In terms of total money it sur-
passes the $55 million, five-year contract Albert Belle signed with the Chicago
White Sox. San Francisco's Barry Bonds is third at $43.75 million over six years.
Sheffield hit .314 last season with 42 homers and 120 RBIs.
Florida made the move following an offseason in which the Marlins com-
mitted more than $89 million to free agents, giving the money primarily to
pitcher Alex Fernandez ($35 million over five years), outfielder Moises Alou
($25 million over five years) and infielder-outfielder Bobby Bonilla ($23.3 mil-
lion over four years).
Sheffield. 28, is getting $6.1 million in 1997, the final season of a $24.45 mil-
lion, four-vear contract. His new deal calls for $10 million a season from 1998-
2002 and $11 million in 2003. Florida has an $11 million option for 2004.
In addition, the Marlins will give Sheffield a $2.5 million salary advance on
Jan. 6, 1998 - $500,000 for each of the first five seasons of the new contract.
Sheffield and the Marlins are believed to have agreed to most of the points
of the deal in late February. But because extensions agreed to after opening day
are not counted in calculations for a team's 1997 luxury tax, they held off
announcing it until today.
Still, management's Player Relations Committee may investigate to see
whether the deal should count to the Marlins' current payroll, a management
official said on the condition he not be identified.
In addition to salary, Sheffield could earn a $150,000 bonus if he wins the
NL MVP award, $100,000 if he finishes second, $75,000 for third, $50,000 for
fourth and $25,000 for fifth.

ECU's Track and Field teams com-
peted at the Raleigh Relay
Invitational last weekend. The meet,
which was held at North Carolina
State University, hosted athletes
from 80 different schools.
The Pirates posted second place
finishes in the 4x100 and the 4x200
meter relays and a tie for first place in
the 4x400 meter relay race. The N.C.
All-Stars were the only sprinters at
the meet to outrun ECU's squads.
In the 4x100 meter, Chris Rey,
Brian Johnson, Vaughn Monroe and
Bevan Foster crossed the finish line at
40.55, while the All-Stars came in at

Injuries haunting Hornets' players
FORT MILL, S.C. (AP) - This is not
what coach Dave Cowens had in mind
for the Charlotte Hornets' stretch run.
Charlotte went into the final
month of the season with its magic

Charlotte is without injured
Anthony Mason, who leads the team
in rebounding and is second in scoring
and assists, and top scorer Glen Rice is
sick and may also be unable to play
against the Hawks, who have won
seven in a row.
"You want to peak at the right
time Cowens said, "but right now
we're kind of beat up, so it's sort of
hard to tell where we are
The Hornets told Rice to skip their
practice Tuesday after he exhibited
flu-like symptoms, and he was listed as
questionable for the

since he's coming
off being sick, he's
probably going to be

"Even if he plays,
he's probably not

43 minutes per

and is scoring 26.4
points, the third-highest figure in the
NBA. He has averaged 30 points over

Rice's surge has helped rhe
Hornets play themselves
into contention for what
would tie the third playoff
berth in franchise history,

Hornets are 1-2 since
Mason suffered a partially

foot, an injury that is
expected to keep him
sidelined at least through

Rice's playing time would
likely go to Rafael Addison and Donald
Roval. Addison has appeared in 32
games this season and has averaged 8.5
minutes and 2.9 points. Royal,
obtained in a midseason trade, is aver-
aging 3.7 points in 13.8 minutes.
Without Mason in the lineup, the
Hornets' rebounding average has
dropped by four per game. In
Charlotte's two most recent games, a
pair of one-point losses, the Hornets
have allowed their opponents to shoot

The East Carolinian
Wildcats return home to 40,000
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Al
Coxon, a retired sports writer and
editor, always wanted a team to root
for. He had to remain neutral for
Now he's got the Arizona
Wildcats, the nation's basketball
Coxon and his wife Marty were
decked out in red Arizona Final
four T-shirts as they and about
45,000 others welcomed the team
home Tuesday from its triumphant
Final four victories over North
Carolina and Kentucky that gave
Arizona the NCAA tide.
"I always wanted to have a team,
root for 'em, act nuts, but I couldn't
do that working for a paper said
Coxon, who worked for the Chicago
Daily News and then the
Waukegan, III News-Sun before
retiring in 1985.
The Coxons started following
the Wildcats that year, when they
began spending winters in Tucson.
He said they haven't been disap-
pointed. Nor were the thousands of
others who took off work, or played
hooky, to join in the citywidc cele-
Then too, neither were the
Wildcats players and coaches, when
their motorcade pulled into Arizona
Stadium to find a sea of red-shirted,
wildly demonstrative fans filling
most of the 57,000 seats, screaming
like Beatles fans.
"It's unbelievable, it's unbeliev-
able said Miles Simon, who was
named the Final four tournament's
most outstanding player. "Thank
you all for coming
Arizona coach Lute Olson told
the crowd, "You're the No. 1 fans in
the world. If anyone doubted that,

As the motorcade entered the

And as the team worked its way
across the field to where risers were
set up, hundreds of red and blue
balloons were released into the
bright blue sky while kids of all ages
clamored for autographs or high-
The noise and enthusiasm
prompted Arizona football coach
Dick Tomey to compare it with the
atmosphere in Arizona Stadiurh
when his team defeated then-No. 1
Washington in 1992.
"I didn't expect this many peo-
ple. It just shows all the support we
have center AJ. Bramlett said.

Police encountered severe prob-

Tuesday when rowdy revelers who
flooded Fourth to Avenue near cam-

other things, an undercover police
car was flipped, officers used a pep-

began throwing rocks and bottles,
and six people were arrested.
Additionally, a police officer and
a television cameraman were
injured, one by a rock and the other
by a thrown glass. A TV broadcast-
