The Rebel wins collegiate equivalent to Pulitzer prize
The Rebei, one of the university's student publi-
cations, has been named a national magazine
Pacemaker for this year by the Associated
Collegiate Press (AGP).
The Pacemaker award is college journalism's
most prestigious prize for general excellence and
has been said to be the collegiate journalism's
equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize awarded to com-
The Rebel, which is ECU's student
literaryarts magazine, was selected as one of six
magazines nationally to receive this honor and
one of two in the state. Windover at North
Carolina State also received the award.
"It's actually last year's Rebd that's winning
all the awards said the art director for this year,
Tim Jones. "The one for this year is still in pro-
duction Jones added that the credit for the
19 Rebel should go to 19 Art Director,
Jonathan Peedin and Assistant Art Directors
Dana Ezzell and Bryon Hutchens. John Buliard
served as editor of the issue.
According to Jones, The Rebrl is operated and
produced much like ECU's minority magazine,
"It takes a while to get them published, so
while one might be out winning awards, we're
here working on the next one Jones said.
The Pacemaker honor is the second national
award received by the magazine this year, the
Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA)

Ezzell, one of The Rebefs 19 assistant art
directors, said it was a nice honor to know that
something they had.workcd so hard for was
being nationally recognized.
"The magazine does not get a lot of recogni-

Ezzell said. "All three af us (the art director and
assistants) collaborated and worked days and

Kristen Alford was
elected president of
the Student Union for
1997-98. She is cur-
rently the vice-presi-
dent of Student
Union, but will take
her position as presi-
dent at the Student
Union banquet on
April 27,1997 at 7p.m.
Alford has several
goals she would like to
accomplish while she
is in office. She feels
that there is a lack of
participation by the students to become
involved in the Student Union. She hopes she
will be able to rejuvenate the committees
because some committees have not received
much participation this past year.
For the upcoming year, Alford plans to add
more participation by adding several more
activities and programs. She plans to do many
more things with the cultural awareness com-
"Films committee has done outstanding
with the movies they have shown on campus.
The visual arts committee has done an out-
standing job also with the art gallery in
Mendenhall" Alford said.
She feels that all of the other committees
have done excellent jobs and will continue to
do so and make the Student Union improve in
"There is room for improvement, creativity
and new ideas Alford said.
There will be a survey available for students
to fill out to find out what kind of programs
and activities they would like to have. She
hopes more students will be on the commit-
tees, so they can voice their opinions.
She wishes the students around campus
could be more informed about the programs or
activities that are going to be held. She feels
most of the poor attendance at the programs or
activities was because people and students
were not interested enough to go. In the
future, she hopes to receive more student
involvement. Alford and her Vice President,
Virginia Anderson, also want to stay informed
and involved with each committee.
Alford's main goal is to make the Student
Union better than it has been in the past. She
hopes her efforts will bring more involvement
and more programs to ECU's campus. She also
feels that the chairpersons she has chosen for
1997-98 will work hard in their positions and
make an improvement in the Student Union.
Applications for Student Union committees
are available at the information desk in
Mendenhall or at the Student Union offices.
Students invited to Belize for cultural studies
Application deadine approaching
Due to the efforts of ECU's Department of English and Office
of International Affairs, students have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in a unique program in cultural studies.
The university's recent official signing of the cultural stud-
ies program in Central America makes it possible for students
to receive college credits for classes in African and Caribbean
literature and ethnic studies while studying in Belize over the
The idea originated with a past visit to Belize by Dr. Gay
Wilentz of ECU's English department. Wilentz said she
became enchanted with the country on her first visit.
"I went to Belize to interview someone Wilentz said, "and
while I was there, I realized it would be a very good place for
an exchange program in cultural studies
Wilentz, who has been visiting Belize for five years and
taught there last year, said Belize was the perfect place for such
a program because it is a very multicultural, African-based but
English-speaking society. Having a program in Belize began to
sound even better when a comparison was made between the
expense of having a program in Belize and having the same
type of program in West .Africa.
"Belize is a different kind of multi-ethnic society with many
cultures like Mayan, Spanish, Creole, and the Garifuna cul-
ture Wilentz said. "The
Garifuna are a unique people
of African descent with very
rich lifestyles. They were
never slaves, and they settled
in Belize in the 1700's
Almost 300 years later,
many of the Garifuna's
African traditions remain
intact. Besides having the
opportunity to interact with
people of different cultures
and take ECU based classes,
participants can also enroll in
classes taught by Belizean
faculty members from the
University College Belize in
archeolopv. Carihhean stud-
ies, and environmental stud-
Wilentz herself will be
teaching courses in African
and Caribbean literature this
summer. All classes are
mixed, containing both stu-
dents from the U.S. and
"One of our goals was to work out a mutual exchange
Wilentz said. "Many Belizean students have expressed inter-
ests in coming to our country to study as well. It is our hope
that the eventual exchange will be with faculty, students and
Other related projects in negotiation include an English as
a Second Language (ESL) internship program, which may
involve marine and coastal studies. Also, Wilentz said the uni-
versity is trying to bring Belizean students to ECU for post-
While the program would be a beneficial experience to all
students, Wilentz said it would be particularly rewarding for
African-American students, in whom Belize is especially inter-
The $1000 program fee includes airfare, housing and two
meals a day, one night's hotel stay, orientation and one day-trip
to a Mayan village near Belize City. Students will be housed in
groups of two or three, with English-speaking Belizean fami-
lies. Vegetarian diets can be accommodated.

The session planned for this summer is from June 14 to
July 7 and can accommodate approximately 10 to 12 students.
There are still a few seats left, and applications are due April
15 with a non-refundable application processing fee of $10.
Students who are accepted will be required to pay a non-
refundable deposit of $500 by April 30 and the remaining bal-
ance by May 25.
Participants may apply for financial assistance a number of
ways. Students may apply for Thomas W Rivers Awards for
Study Abroad or federal financial aid. Students should inquire,
of the program director questions regarding the possibilities for
enrollment during the first summer term at ECU.
Wilentz said she is confident that the benefits of the pro-
gram will far outweigh the expense.
"Belize is a great place she said. "The people are very
friendly, and the society is truly multicultural. We could learn
something from them

ARTS AND STUDIES ISSUES
The Office of International Affairs has been
attempting to increase its number of interna-
tional students�which is significantly low for
a school this size�and become known in the
international studies field as an attractive
choice for exchanges and international study.
There is a difference between an exchange
student and an international student, as
Stephanie Evancho, international admissions
"The international students are degree-
seeking students who fill out a complete appli-
cation form and a confidential financial form
Evancho said. "The exchange students are
part of our exchange agreement, where we're
sending students to their school so they can
send students to us
Other state schools currently have a much
higher percentage of international students
"Our size should have at least two to 500
international students Evancho said. "We
don't even have one percent. One percent is
my first goal, which would bring us up to 170
Evancho says she has been traveling a lot on
recruitment tours, trying to make ECU's name
more well-known, hoping to increase the num-
ber of applications her office receives.
"It can happen, and it should Evancho
said. "We're very marketable. We have so much
to offerthese kids find out we're a Division I
school in athletics, we've got a school of busi-
ness, school of art, school of education, every-
thing they could want
In traveling to the recruitment confer-
ences, Evancho found that ECU is not very
well known as an option for international
"They've never heard of us Evancho siad.
"We don't have the name recognition. State
schools don't usually do a lot of recruitment.
But we're in a situation where we're trying to
In addition to the wide range of majors to
choose from, ECU also has the advantage of
being financially feasible. This is an advantage
for international students who usually are not
funded by their government, as arc American
"Our cost is very competitive Evancho
said. "It's a lot lower than the private schools.
The only thing we don't have is scholarships
Once an international student is accepted
at ECU, they have a support system available
both from the international affairs office and
the office of special populations. Dr. Lucy
Wright is the director of the Special
"Once they are accepted, we get a copy of
the letter of acceptance that goes to the stu-
dent, then we write a letter that goes to the
student overseas that is like a welcoming let-
ter Wright said. "It tells them what to bring
with them, how to get here, we let them know
they have a mandatory health insurance
requirement, and immunizations
All international students get cleared
through the Special Ibpulations office when
they first come to campus, and the support
continues during their stay here.
"There's an orientation program for two
days at the beginning of every semester. We
use international students in that program so
they have some peers. We have a host family
program, where those people who don't move
immediately into a residence hall have a fami-
ly that meets them, takes care of them, until
they have housing Wright said.
Once the students are settled in, the
offices of international affairs and pecial popu-
lations are available for whatever help might
be needed, from providing international stu-
dents with a newsletter to help with their tax
forms. These two offices agree that they hope
to see a lot more international students on
campus in the future.

UN-CH law student arrested for smoking pot in class
The marijuana-smoking incident involving second-year law student Barry
Berman was a "dramatic gesture" to let people know that he needed help.
one of Berman's friends said Thursday.
"It was not a protest or something that was directly a result of stress in
law school said Steve Dunn, second-year student in the School of Law. "Its
clear that the reason he did it was a dramatic gesture to let everyone know
he was out of control and needed help
Wednesday afternoon, Berman was charged with two misdemeanors by
University Police after smoking marijuana in Professor Arnold Loewry's con-
stitutional law class.
Since then, Dunn said Berman's attorney had notified his parents. They
flew from Florida to Chapel Hill and were seeking support for their son.
Berman was unavailable for comment Thursday.
Law school administrators and faculty said they were unable to comment
Thursdav because of the Family Educational Rights Act.
"There are procedures to follow, and they are being followed said Mary
Murray, assistant dean of external relations at the law school.
USF graduates most students
USF has awarded the most diplomas in the least amount of time-a national
record of 150,000 in just 34 years.
In honor of the accomplishment, the first certified graduate of LSE
Evelyn O'Neal, class of 1962, and the 150,000th graduate Felisa Cupps, who
graduated in December, will be honored with a gift of an undisclosed value.
.Assistant registrar for students .Angela DuBose said graduating so many
students in such a short amount of time is a testament to the school's devo-
tion to all its students.

Death rituals create a strange fascination among the living.
That is the experience of Anne Schiller, an anthropologist and sociology-
professor at N.C. State who took a film crew from National Geographic on an
expedition into Petak Putih, Borneo last summer.
Schiller traveled to Borneo because the local family that had adopted her
during her previous three visits to the island nation was preparing for the
death ritual known as tiwah, and they wanted to share the experience with
her and the rest of the world.
The tiwah is important to the Ngaju Dayak people because it fulfills their
faith and gives them a sense of cultural identity.
"We really do need to take care of each other Schiller says and the
death rituals are a way for the people to repay their parents for giving them
life In some sections of Borneo, the dead are believed to rest in peace only
after the tiwah has been performed.
The first quest of the tiwah is to offer food for the dead to eat in the after-
life bv means of animal sacrifice. The blood of the beast is applied to the
faces of familv members and is thought to protect the living from famine and
evil. Bodies of the dead are exhumed and the bones are placed in the family-

State asks court to stop
satellite campus until
BOONE, N.C. (AP) - The state has
gone to court to stop construction
of a college campus until an erosion
problem that is bringing muddy
water into a nearby stream and
ditch is resolved.
North Carolina attorneys
requested an injunction Monday in
Witauga Superior Court to block
the project. Caldwell Community
College and Technical Institute
wants to build the satellite campus
west of Boone.
In its court filing, the state said
soil from the 12-acre construction
site near North Carolina 105 Bypass
has been running into a stream for
months without the college taking
steps to stop it. A neighbor said her
ditch fills with muddy water from
the site whenever it rains.
The state asked the court to
order the college to stop work
immediately and install storm-drain
inlets, clean out a basin designed to
catch runoff from the site and stabi-
lize the eroded slopes and gullies.
State officials have fined the col-
lege $3,800 since December over
the problem. The college has
appealed the fines.

Lawyer says Taco Bell
wage-hour verdict warn-
ing to other fast-food
SEATTLE (AP) - A verdict that
could cost Taco Bell millions of dol-
lars in back wages is a warning to
other fast-food chains that they bet-
ter not take advantage of low-paid
workers, lawyers said.
Dozens of Taco Bell restaurants
violated state wage laws by pressur-
ing as many as 13,000 workers to
pick up trash, prepare food and per-
form other tasks without pay, a jury
The extra work at 62 of the
restaurants in the state - owned by
PepsiCo Inc. - came before and after
workers' shifts and during meal and
rest breaks over the last five years,
the Superior Court jury said.
A hearing to determine back pay
and damages in the class-action law-
suit was not immediately scheduled,
but the total could exceed $10 mil-
The 12-mcmber jury, which
required only a 10-vote majority to
reach a verdict, was unanimous on
the two most critical questions,

pattern of failing to pay overtime
and were committed willfully with
an intent to deprive employees of

Too bad, so sad.
This is the message seniors are getting about the new policy concerning graduation. Some
seniors will have enough credit hours to walk across the podium and receive their diploma in
May but still must take a class or two during the summer. But now the university is saying those
seniors can't walk with their peers and will have to wait until December to walk up on stage.
The reason behind the decision was to limit the amount of people in Minges Coliseum in
case of inclement weather, the ceremony would move from Dowdy-Ficklen to Minges. We at-
TEC can understand their reasoning behind the decision but what we can't understand is this:
The deadline to apply for graduation was in January, and these students weren't told they
wouldn't be able to walk until March. And even then a lot of people found out when they went
to pay for their cap and gown and were told, "Sorry, you won't be able to walk until December
Why weren't these people told by university officials about the new policy? Not to mention they
were told just two months before their big day.
A lot of family members have already made hotel reservations and have made plans to be in
Greenville for the special moment, so now they have to wait until December. Many graduates
will enter the work force and relocate to various areas; how many will really want to come back
seven months later to walk across this stage? The whole situation makes no sense and the fact
these people weren't informed until two months after they applied for graduation just adds fuel
to the fire.
As with any student, graduation is a special time and some people have looked forward to
walking across the stage in front of beaming family members and friends and finally getting the
diploma they have worked so hard for. But now they have to wait.
We can understand the officials wanting to implement a new graduation policy and that is
fine, but do it after this graduating class gets out in May. Let's make an exception for these
seniors and implement the new policy beginning.next year. That's the only fair deal. That way
the seniors can still walk, but rising seniors will know the new policy for next year and they can
ake their plans accordingly.

We need to believe
Presidents should apologize for incidents
Recently, four survivors of the
Tuskegee Syphilis Study asked the
honorable President Clinton for an
official apology because black men in
Tuskegee, Ala. were used by the fed-
eral government as guinea pigs in a
syphilis experiment decades ago. The
men who had syphilis were denied
treatment for many years as the feder-
al government was studying the dis-
ease and its implications. Ptniciliin, a
drug discovered by Alexander
Fleming, could have been used to
treat the disease at the time the men
needlessly suffered from the dreaded
Dr. MarceNus Barksdale, a distin-
guished professor in the African-
American studies department at
Morehousc College in Atlanta, offered
some candid, insightful comments on
the infamous syphilis study: "It was
one of the tragedies of African-
American history. The men were
allowed to live with syphilis all that
time. The men who were pan of the
experiment were all African-
The professor continued, "This
really highlights racism that was
involved. It also speaks to how some
of us would just buy into a system that
fraudulently and falsely presents itself
as something legitimate
When I asked about the related
litigations of the 1970s, the professor
suggested, "I assume that people
thought that the experiment would
be detrimental to those involved.
The settlement reached could not
compensate for the suffering
The educator mentioned the
movie Rosewood as another example of
how African-Americans have been
used, abused, accused and confused
for centuries. Moreover, the professor
gave the following closing remarks:
"The Tuskegee experiment shows
our victimization and more than that,
it speaks to a deep-rooted racism visi-
ble in the American fabric
Nevertheless, though Clinton's apolo-
gy will not right the wrongs of the
despicable syphilis experiment, it will
be a major step in the right direction.
I wish former presidents had offered
an apology. African-Americans,
through vigilance, should insure that
similar experiments do not become
Being editor can be tough
Did you know that football season
starts in less than five months?
Are you ready to support your
mighty Pirates all through out the '97
season? I hope so because this is
going to be one of the most impor-
tant football seasons in Pirate history.
After all, we will be in Conference
Do you know what our Pirates
need the most for this season? Yes,
practice is important. They do need
to be physically ready. However, what
they need the most is moral support
from their fans.
That's where we come in the pic-
ture. Or at least we're supposed to.
Remember the catchy phrase,
"We Believe during the 1992 Peach
Bowl game? You know, the one in
which ECU won the game against
N.C. State with a field goal. It's the
game in which all the ECU fans knew
that the Pirates could do it. All they
needed was support. The purple and
gold dressed fans crowded into the
stadium in Atlanta to support their
Pirates. Some painted their faces
purple, while others held up the
famous yellow sword screaming "We
Now, think back to the winter of
1994 in Memphis, Tennessee. The
town had been taken over by hungry
Pirates ready for Illinois. The tailgate
fields outside of the stadium were
nothing like ours in Greenville.
There was no grass. Mostly just grav-
el parking lots or, if you were lucky;
paved parking lots. This couldn't
stop the Pirate fans from coming.
They piled into the stands and
watched with misery as Illinois tram-
pled on the ECU Pirates with a 21-0
win. Pirate fans started the game off
yelling and supporting their football
heroes. By haif-time, it had started
raining and the fans started to disap-
pear. The ECU students who had
painted their chests with purple let-
ters to get on television were gone.
The fans who wore all purple and
gold were nowhere in sight. In fact,
there were very few Pirates who actu-
ally stayed through the entire game
in hopes of a miracle.
The next year, the Pirates
returned to the Liberty Bowl and
dragged along mostly everybody from
Eastern Norrh Carolina, including
Pee Dee. This time fans had no prob-
lem staying for the entire game
because ECU was winning.
This past November, we had our
latest victory over N.C. State in
Charlotte. The stadium was packed
with Pirate fans.
So, why do we have a hard time
filling up our own stadium in
Greenville? And why do we abandon
our heroes when they need us the
We need to fully believe in our
Pirates, especially during a home
game. To believe in someone, you
need to support them. If we are los-
ing a game by 20 points at half time,
that is more reason to stay. Stand up,
scream, do whatever you have to do
to let them hear your Pirate voices.
During the football season, our
players travel to many places for
away games. They see how much
support other teams get from their
loyal fans. They see the stadium
packed with screaming fans.
Now, stop and think how our play-
ers feel when they run out on their
own field. They look up in the stands
and see their own screaming fans.
Their morale is boosted. They're
pumped and ready to kick some butt.
Then, by the middle of the second
quarter, they iook back up at their
fans and notice something different.
They see that most of the fans are
either not paying attention or have
left the game. Think about what that
does to them.
We're supposed to be their fans.
We're the Pirates. We need to show
them full support through thick and
thin. It's sad when a football player
has to stand on the field waving his
arms up and down to get the fans on
their feet. We should already be
doing that. We should be loyal fans.
So. for the 1997 football season,
let's fill up Dowdy-RckJen Stadium
with proud Pirates. They need us. I
know that this football season, and
everv one to come, I'll believe.
As many readers of The Easr
Carolinian are fully aware, the student-
run newspaper at ECU has been per-
ceived as the enemy of SGA But
everyone's perceptions differ as to his
point of view. Newspapers are sup-
posed to the watchdog of govern-
ment. It is the duty of this medium to
report newsworthy events to the stu-
dent body. Sometimes, the most
newsworthy story on this campus is a
lecture by a visiting speaker, some-
times a music concert or intercolle-
giate sports event; depending on your
point of view.
For example, if you're involved
with ECU Athletics, you might think
the acquisition of a new premier ath-
lete should be top of the news. If
you're the Interfraternity Council
(IFC) President, you may think
Greek Week should receive front page
coverage. As a leader in the Residence
Hall Association (RHA), maybe
changes in residence hall fire codes
should run lead. If you're a minority
student leader on campus, ethnic
issues should run above the fold.
But take a look at the flipside of
Perhaps an athlete gets arrested;
it's news and is reported, much to the
chagrin of the athletic department.
Maybe an alcohol or drug-related inci-
dent happens in a fraternity house
over the weekend; it's investigated by
the paper. (We were just eliminated
from the IFC Christmas card list.)
What if a fight breaks out between
two rap groups in the campus radio
station? All of a sudden, something
else should have been more important
The aforementioned scenarios
happen on college campuses every
The job description of an editor-
in-chief is to make decisions concern-
ing the editorial and advertising con-
tent of his publication. If he lives in
the back pocket of the athletic
department, the big game is big news.
To a Greek maybe that incident was-
n't such a big deal afterall. Maybe to
an African-American the fight really
wasn't that much of a rumble.
Everyone loves to second-guess
decisions like these. Everyone is
quick to criticize. But not everyone
sits in our office in front of a comput-
er screen for eight, nine or 10 hours on
a production night trying to figure out
why the front page won't print.
I won't even get started on elec-
tion-time politics, be it federal, state,
county, city or campus.But this year,
both SGA presidential candidates
made "say no to SGA tuition" a major
part of their platforms. Only a handful
of students and administrators knew
about this practice until Tke East
Carokman printed the details in a lead
story last semester. All of a sudden,
everyone who picked up a newspaper
was concerned and several classroom
debates on this issue began.

The East Carolinian
CDreviews Campus welcomes Julian Bream
Blue Sky on Mars
Honestlv, sometimes I just don't
know whv I even try. I put Fluf in
again at three in the morning, just to
see if I could somehow reach a level ot
transcendence that would empower
me to understand the record and,
well, I didn't transcend anything. It's
not that that Fluf stinks; they know
how to play guitars. It's not that they
need a few years to grow into their
potential; this is their fourth album.
Perhaps it's because they have "way
cool" printed on the cover of Waikitt.
That's it - it was a jinx. The gods of
alterna-sludge have cursed them to
playing the same old tired crap that
has been oozing out of Seattle's pos-
terior ever since Kurt (God rest his
soul) pulled the trigger.
Only they're not from Seattle;
they're from California, and they
weren't (I don't think) trying to copy
Seattle at all. Perhaps this is really
post-glam drainage that has floated its
way down the sewer of heavy metal to
MCA Records. Maybe they're not
really a band after all. Maybe this is
God's way of saying "OK boys, grunge
is dead. Here's the corpse. Timcto
move on now. The end is at hand
That's it - rock n' roll really is the
devil's music, and this album proves
it. How else could something manage
to sound like hell?
So anyway, I have to review this
album, which means 1 have to listen
to it and give it a fair chance. So I did
that. I'm sitting in my bedroom, lis-
tening to the first track ("Skip Beat")
and suddenly; in the middle of the
song, I have to get up and do some-
thing, which makes me bump the CD
player, which makes the CD skip.
It was a pretty rough bump. The
CD skips to the middle of track two
("Pushin Back Days"), and I realize
how very similar the two songs sound,
almost as if they were identical. I lis-
ten for a moment and then skip back
to track one, noticing that the tempo
does change slightly. But other than
that, the songs do sound the same. So,
forgetting my errand, I decide to
experiment. 1 grab the remote and
proceeded to randomly select songs,
scanning to the middle of songs at
times, and I discover that, for the
most part, all of the songs sound alike.
Now, I can almost forgive a band
like the Spin Doctors, who had one
good idea and managed to make three
albums out of it, or Hootie, who had
several ideas, only they were all bad.
Bm Fluf seems to be one of those
bands that has no ideas which they
repeat throughout their entire album.
This is an unforgivable sin, espe-
cially when the songs have such inter-
esting titles (track 12 is called
"Batwing"). Oh, if only the songs
were interesting. But alas, they are
not. No indeed, they are the spew
which proceedeth from the mouth of
a greatly irritable goat, which
sneezeth upon our dinner and makcth
us angry and anxious.
So, I shall arise as a knight who
stands for all that is true, and I shall
take up my holy sword. Power
Macintosh, which 1 drew from the
Apple and I shall slay this terrible goat
and his mucous shall no longer plague

Before 1 begin, let me say that I am a
huge Matthew Sweet fan. I've seen
him live quite a number of times
(always a pleasure), and his last three
albums (Girlfriend, Altered Beast and
100 Fun) arc still in constant rotation
on my CD player. .
Therefore, it was with great antici-
pation that I awaited the release of Blue
Sty on Mars. I bought it the day it came
out and rushed home to spend an hour
or so immersing myself in what I was
sure would be another knockout
Boy was I disappointed.
I couldn't understand why. I could-
n't decide what was so different about
this album. I decided to give it a few
more listens and try to get a lock on the
direction that Sweet was taking with
this particular recording After repeated
listenings, I did strike upon a couple of
things that seemed to be a part of what
turned me off to the distinctively odd
soundscape found on Blue Sty on Mars.
First of all, the album clocks in at
just under 37 minutes, a far cry from
the longer, richer aural tapestries that
Sweet had crafted before. Secondly,
Sweet's longtime collaborators, Richard
Lloyd and Robert Quine, with whom
Sweet recorded those three albums I
like so much, are both missing here.
Where they went, I don't know, but
they are sorely missed and needed.
� It seems that, with their absence.
Sweet has returned to making sugary
sweet pop fluff like that found on his
first two albums. Inside and Earth, both
of which were missteps m Sweet's
Also. Sweet has given producer
Brendan O'Brien (who has worked with
such acts as Pearl Jam, Stone Temple
Pilots and Neil Young) a new place by
his side. O'Brien has a presence on ten
out of the 12 tracks on this album, play-
ing everything from keyboards to guitar
to rneltocron to drums. I truly can't tell
if O'Brien hurts or helps Sweet, but he
can't make up for the absence of Lloyd
Sweet's songs have always been
about relationships, and here is no dif-
ferent. Sweet is normally a master of
the leve song. Even on this album he
has squeezed in some good tracks, like
the quietrv beautiful "Until You Break"
and the fuzz and strings of "Into Your
Yet most of what is meant to be
meaningful on Blue Sty on Mars comes
off as doey-eyed .ind stiff. For example,
on "Behind the Smile Sweet sings, "I
haven't been a good friend For a long,
long time 1 haven't been a good friend
While you've been mine Now am I
by vour side Or standing in your way?
'Cause if this is a sign 1 don't know
what it's s'posed to mean I don't
know what it means either, pal.
I'm lost and confused. I've seen
some critics herald this alburn as the
best Sweet's done since Girlfriend. Yet,
to me it is a step backward.
While some believe that Sweet has
gained the confidence to move into
unchartered territory, "to go where no
man has gone before" (which fits with
his Mars theme), I say that Sweet has
taken that dreaded wrong turn at
1 don't know what the future will
bring for Sweet, but I hope it's better

Notes from the
Fuel for addiction found on interne
I'm an addict. . . .
There, I've said it. They say that admitting it is
the first step towards curing yourself. My only prob-
lem is that I don't wanttobecured. I love my addic-
tion. I thrive on and obsess over it in ways that my
wife believes are truly unhealthy for our life togeth-
er and potentially damaging to my psyche.
No, it's not drugs. It's not smoking. It's not even
caffeine (although I do have that addiction ad infini-
tum). Unfortunately, it's much, much more pathet-
ic than those addictions.
OK, 1 can tell you, you're a friend. Come closer,
so I can whisper it. I don't want it to get around, you
You sec, I'm addicted to old movies.
Alright, quit it. It's not that funny. Enough with
the laughing, already Yes, I know I'm a sad case.
I watch American Movie Classics (AMC) and
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) until my eyes
bleed. Give me a western to watch, especially
one with Randolph Scott or Joel McCrea, and
I'm hooked. Put on a Gene Kelly movie, any
Gene Kelly movie, and I won't move from my
seat. Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner, William
Powell, Ingrid Bergman - these arc my fnends.
But it's not just old movies that I crave
night and day. No, 1 have raHcn much deeper
than that. I'm also a fiend about letterboxing
(you know, those black bars and the top and
bottom of the screen on some movies).
Some people find letterboxing annoying,
but as a film fanatic, 1 find watching movies in
letterbox to be the only way to watch.
Letterboxing retains the original aspect ratio
of the film, so that the audience sees it the
way that the filmmakers intended. Cropping a
film for TV (making it "Pan & Scan") is like tak-
ing a rectangular painting and chopping off jhe
sides so that it will fit into a square frame. Ips
painful to watch. But enough about that.
Here's the true extent of my sickness. I

Miller began his college career at
UNC Chapel Hill, a university that
offered him plenty of academic but no
athletic opportunities. Eager to play
golf at the collegiate level, he trans-
ferred to ECU in the Spring of 1995,
thus making what he believes to be
"the best decision of his life
"I wanted to play for a school
where 1 could really contribute to the

much time athletes put in Miller
said. "Sometimes it's hard to juggle all
of the things I need to do
rbr that reason. Miller feels that to
recognize only two athletes as recipi-
ents for the outstanding athlete award
is unfair. He wishes that all of ECU's
athletes could get the recognition
"I am proud that I am receiving
this award, and I am glad to have been
chosen when so many talented ath-
letes were candidates, but is almost

is a sport where there is always room

As the captain of this year's team.
Miller's most memorable experiences
are of the long road trips and hanging
out with the other guys on the team.

team comes from the strong friend-
ships that are made among team-
Miller said that he has been
inspired mostly by his father, who is
seen by many as a "workaholic
"I always see my dad working so
hard to keep my brother and I in
school. That inspires me to work
hard Miller said.
Miller is focusing on playing more
consistently and on maintaining a low
average. His long term goal is to even-
tually make it to the NCAA
Championships, but for the near
future, he and his teammates are con-
centrating on the CAA
Championships. The tournament will
be held next weekend at the Lanetrec
Countrv Club in Goldsboro.

Players prepare for
With spring football winding down, the
Pirates will put an exclamation point on
the last practice with the PurpleGold
Oh Saturday the Pirates will use
their last practice day to show their
progress to fans. For spring ball, teams
get 15 days of practice and this will be
it for the Pirates until regular season
practice begins in August.
In the past, the game has been more
for the enjoyment of the fans, but this
year's game will see a lot of the starters
getting more action.
Starting quarterback Dan Gonzalez
says this year's game will be taken more
seriously by the players than past
"In the past it's been more ofa thing
for the fans, but seeing how our team
needs experience and needs work,
we're going to take Saturday as serious-
ly as we can and we're going to get in
there Gonzalez said. "It's going to be
a real deal scrimmage
One area that will sec a lot of time is
the starting offensive line. The offen-
sive line lost four players to graduation
last season. With only one returning
starter, this has been an area of concern
for Head Coach Steve Logan.
"Our offensive line has really held
everything hostage Logan said. "It's
been slow, but we've made some
progress and we're a little better off
than we were
The lone returning offensive line-
man is center Danny Moore, who says
the guys on the line are making
"These guvs have made tremendous
strides Moore said. "These young
guys arc getting better and better
evervday If they continue to get better
like they are. we'll be in good shape
come the season
Moore, a junior, is looking to guide
the guys along and help them in any
way possible to learn their assignments
and the offensive schemes.
"I was fortunate to have a group of
guys with me that helped me along
Moore said. "I'm trying to do that for
these guys. I'm trying to step up and be
a leader for them
The players have been told this
year's scrimmage will give the starters
more playing time, and this wiil also
give the offensive line a chance to play
in a scrimmage that's close to a real
game in front of fans before the season
starts in September.
"In years past a lot of the time the
starters have come out after the first
two series Moore said. "Coaches have
told us this year, starters are going to
play the whole time like it's supposed
to be played. It's going to give these
guys (offensive line) a chance to get a
feel for what the game's really like

ECU will present the newly renovated
Dowdy-Ficklen stadium to the football
world next Fall in their opener against
perennial ACC cellar dweller, Wake
forest. A new upper deck on the north
side will add an additional 8,000 seats
and expand the capacity to 43,000. The
main idea behind the upper deck is
ECU's new conference affiliation and
to bring better teams to Greenville.
"The new upper deck will be self

Obusek said. "It will have two ramps
and two staircases, plus an elevator. It
will also have a concourse level that will

between the lower level and upper
level, which has raised concern that the
students are being forgotten.

tor Henry VanSant said. "We want

The upper deck is phase one of a
four phase plan. The next step will be
to build club level seating between the
lower and upper decks. Phase three
will include building an upper deck on
the south side as well as a new press
box. The last phase will be to close in
the west end zone with seating. Once
all of this has been accomplished,

Irates get back on
The ECU Ultimate team takes time out for a group pose. The Irates have recorded two
consecutive tournament wins.
PHOTO COURTESY OF ULTIMATE TEAM
After poor play at earlier tournaments
in Gainsville, Fla. and Wilmington, the
ECU men's ultimate frisbee team got
back on track. The Irates came back, in
their winning tradition, with two con-
secutive tournament wins and an over-
all record of 18-2.
The weekend of March 22-23 the
Irates traveled to Atlanta, Ga. to play in
"Terminus" along with 19 other col-
lege teams. Coming off their first lost,
at the hands of UGA just the weekend
before at College Easterns, the Irates
had plenty to prove. The Irates
entered Terminus with a 9-1 record
and a number five national ranking,
determined to do well because the
number three ranked University of
Wisconsin was also in the tournament.
ECU cruised through their first day
of play with wins over Williams College
(Mass.) 15-2, Rutgers University 15-6
and Brown University 13-10. Despite
missing two kev players the next day,
ECU dumped Tufts University
(Mass.) 15-6 and FSU 15-5 en route to
the finals. In the other semi-finals
NCSU upset the University of
Wisconsin 15-13, matching the Pack
against the Pirates. The Irates were too
much for the Pack, as they led
throughout, going on to a 17-11 victory
and an overall tournament win.
The Irates' last tournament was on
the 29th and 30th of March, in
Clemson, where they participated in a
35 team "open" tourney (meaning
club as well as college teams were in
attendance). The Irates picked up
right where they left off in Atlanta,
beating Vanderbilt 15-5 and spanking
Virginia Tech 15-2 in their first two
The Irates' next opponent was
Carleton College (Minn.), last year's
national champion runner-up.
Carleton had never beaten ECU
before, but this time would be differ-
ent. Carleton won 15-12, due to ECU's
inability to solve Carleton's trap zone.
With their backs against the wall and
facing elimination, the Irates played
excellent on Sunday.
The first team they would play was
Columbia, S.C a club team and a tour-
nament favorite. Through inspired
play, the Irates won 15-12, advancing
to the semi-finals against University of
Wisconsin (the team they hoped to
face in .Atlanta). Wisconsin came out
with a quick 4-1 lead, before the Irates
took over in the second half with their
defense, eventually winning 15-12.
In the finals ECU faced a
collegeclub combination team from
Wilmington. ECU was in superior
shape, as they literally "outran" the
opposition on their way to a 15-7 victo-
ry. Not only was this the Irates' second
straight tournament win, it was their
first ever "open" tournament win.
The Irates strong piay is centered
around three players who are in their
fourth year of play. Team Captains are
