Eastern NC residents reveal greatest concerns
ECU research lab survey
explores the issues
HM1.THENVIRONMIN-MI. I SSI F.S
ECU's survey research laboratory recently con-
ducted a survey of the leading concerns for res-
idents of eastern North Carolina.
The survey, which was conducted in July
1996. asked residents if they felt issues such as
quality of schools and stricter hog farm regula-
tions would have a positive impact on the qual-
ity of life in eastern N.C. They were then
asked to rank the issues beginning with which
have the most positve impact.
The most positive impact was found to be
the widening of roads to handle more traffic.
Stricter regulations and the quality of schools
were ranked as the second and third most pos-
The survey also asked residents to follow a
similar procedure for issues considered to be a
threat to the quality of life in this area. This
included issues such as over-fishing, increasing
pollution and lack of management of natural
Increasing pollution of rivers and sounds
was ranked as the having most negative impact
on the qualitv of life. More hog farms, plant lay-
offs and closings and higher state and federal
taxes were also among the top responses of
threats to the quality of life.
The researchers were surprised at the
results of the survey due to the greater con-
cerns people feel toward environmental factors
over increases in taxes or crime rates.
"The findings surprised me because
issues like crime and higher taxes get so much
more coverage from the media and in political
debates said sociology professor Bob
Edwards. "Even with all the recent media
attention given to hog farms I didn't think they
would rank over things like crime and taxes
The results of this survey were reported by
Edwards and fellow sociology professor John
Maiolo. According to Edwards, this survey is
part of a larger study the school has been con-
"This piece of research was part of a larger
project we've been conducting to look at the
socio-economic and environmental process of
roads and bridge projects in eastern N.C
Edwards said. "We did it (this survey) to assess
what people thought about road transportation
projects in eastern NC
The funding for the multi-year project was
received through a grant fom the N.C Center
for Transportation and the Environment. The

ECU Dining Services is planning a busy
summer by updating, remodeling and reorga-
nizing five of the campus dining areas.
"The biggest, most visible change will be
the renovation of the Mendenhall dining cen-
ter said Frank Salamon, director of dining
Plans to remodel the seating area, expand
and replace the carpeting, install a new light-
ing system and replace the wall coverings will
all start in the Mendenhall dining center July
"We're going to give it a whole new look to
brighten the dining area and create a more
relaxing environment Salamon said.
Mendenhall will also expand its dinner ser-
vice hours to alleviate overcrowding problems.
"Since we can't make it physically bigger
Salamon said, "we are going to expand the
dinner hours to 4:30 to 7:30, seven days a
week to help with the crowding issue
The Wright Place will also undergo some
changes this summer.
Salamon said the coffee bar is going to be
relocated and expanded. In the rail, it will
include more types of coffee, including more
gourmet flavors and cappuccinos.
The soup bar will also have several new-
additions, including more vegetarian and low
fat soups. They also hope to add several new
refrigeration units to hold more salads and
The Croatan and Todd Dining Hall will
both receive gas-wok appliances this summer.
"These new gas-woks will allow us to cook
more fresh, fast combinations of wok foods
which have been very popular with the stu-
dents Salamon said.
The kitchen in the Galley will also receive
new appliances this summer.
There will be all new kitchen equipment
installed, including some gas appliances for
flame-broiled foods, to make the food flow
from the kitchen faster and more efficient.
Dining Services also plans to expand the
Galley's already diverse menu.
"This is going to be a very interesting sum-
mer with all our changes Salamon said.
Dining Services is also changing the
amounts of money in the built-in declining
balance with the meal plans.
The 19-meal plan will have a $100 declin-
ing balance, the 14-meal plan will have a $125
declining balance, and the 9-mcal plan will
now have a $150 declining balance.
Salamon said there should be no major
changes in variety of foods or prices over the

Student wins book grant from adviser survey
ORIKNTVTION VNI) CKNFKM COLLIOl ISSI Is
On April 15. Travis Thompson was notified that he was the winner of
$300 for textbooks donated by the ECU Student Stores as an incentive
to complete the adviser surveys. Thompson is a sophomore from
An adviser evaluation survey was conducted during ECU's early reg-
istration period. The purpose of passing out the surveys was to select
two advisers of the year for general college and declared majors.
All advisers were given survey packets to pass out to their advisees.
There were separate packets passed out to general college and declared
major adviSees.The advisers of the year are chosen from the evaluation
the advisees complete.
There was a total of 8,950 surveys passed out and 3.046 were turned
in. The awards committee will meet to declare a winner at a later date.
The award for the winners is $500.
"General college awards will be given out first, and the declared
majors will be done at a later date, because they have until April 31 to
turn their evaluations in said Jo Ann Jones, assistant dean for gener-
For generaj college advisees there was something extra for the ones
who turned in their evaluations. Every year when the adviser evalua-
tion surveys are passed out there is an extra incentive for the students
who turn their evaluations in. Over the years, the prizes have changed.
In 19 there was a giveaway from the Student Stores and from din-
ing services. They gave away sweatshirts and free dinners. This year
the people in charge of the surveys collaborated with the Student
Stores and decided to give away $300 toward Ixiok money. The main

"Before we started giving out extra incentives, a lot of students did
not turn in their evaluations said Jones.
"The idea of the $300 toward book money was given to us by the
generosity of the Students Stores said Jones.
Next year they hope to make the prizes given away larger, if they
have the cooperation and money to do so.
The main dining area at Mendenhall will receive the most changes this summer when the renovation and
remodeling to campus dining areas begins. The changes made will hopefully make for a more pleasant and
relaxed eating atmosphere.

To most students, the end ot the school vcar
means going home tor the summer, or at least
a break before summer school. Hut tor EC! 's
exchange students, the end of the school c.ir
means the end of their experience abroad, and
going home requires a longer trip than a car
ride of a few hours.
Exchange student Patrick I'crsson is from
Sweden, and recently discussed with F.(. his
impressions of the past year and how American
and European schools differ.
I'crsson is from Katrineholm, Sweden and
attended the I 'niversity of Oreliro there.
Some of the ways in which Swedish schools
differ from American is an emphasis on lec-
tures in class, no mandatory attendance rules,
and fewer exams.
"We have one or two tests a semester, and
the tests, I think, are usually more difficult

Swedish students don't get the opportunity
to ask questions during lecture time, but
instead are expected to reserve them for the

discussion. The students are expected to

al by whatever means necessary.
"The only thing that matters is if you pass
the test or not. That's the only thing they care
about IVissun s.nd.
Viih a lot of emphasis placed on self-disci-
pline in pursuit of academic excellence, it is
er uncommon for Swedish students to work
while going to school.
For the majority of Swedish students, work-
ing is not a necessity. College tuition is free for
the students who pass the rigorous entrance
tests. Housing and other expenses are taken
care of through government grants and loans.
The college housing in Sweden is also very
different from the US. The majority of stu-
dents live off campus.
"People usually are a little bit older when
they go to college Persson said. "I isually they
have worked for a couple of years and so they
want to live on their own
For those who do live in the dorms, accom-
modations have about eight people to each
hallway, each with their private tK-droom and
bathroom, and a communal kitchen. Some of
the dorms have a small pub in the basement.
Persson says the pub is not really the equiv-
alent of an American bar, but rather the kind of
place friends would go to have a few drinks
before going somewhere else.
Other than the easy accessibility of pubs on
campus, Persson says Swedish students spend
much of their time the same way American
students do. He said he encountered few
shockers about American culture when he
arrived, although a fascination with American
culture apparently is not a trademark of most

Drowning leaves fraternity brothers devastated
RALEIGH (AP) � Counselors and ministers visited a North Carolina State
fraternity still mourning the loss of a newly initiated member who drowned
Steven Velazquez, 19, of Goldsboro died when as many as 18 Tau Kappa
Epsilon members went for a midnight dive off the docks at Lake Johnson on.
Sunday night. Earlier in the evening, six new members were initiated into
The executive director of the international fraternity traveled to Raleigh
from the organization's Indianapolis headquarters to help the N.C. State
University students cope.
The students, who rode to the lake in several vehicles, told police that no
one noticed until later that Velazquez hadn't returned with them to the
chapter house. His body was found in the lake about 12 hours later.
Raleigh police said they do not suspect that hazing or any other crime
Mother pleads guilty in baby's scalding
DURHAM (AP) - A teen-aged mother charged with fatally scalded her 7-
week-old baby by putting her in a tub of hot water pleaded guilty to volun-
LaKesha Michelle Johnson, 19, who had been charged with murder, will
be sentenced June 2. Under the state's structured sentencing laws, she could
receive a maximum of 98 months in prison.
Johnson gave conflicting accounts of how her daughter, Tia Christina
Jones, was burned over 55 percent of her body after the March 20,19 inci-
dent, said prosecutor Elizabeth Armstrong.
The girl died five days later at the UNC Hospitals bum center in Chapel
According to Armstrong, Johnson first told police that her older child,
Shenell, who wa : at the time, had knocked over a boiling pot of water that
spilled on the infant. Later, Johnson said she had left Tia in the bathtub,
went to the kitchen and heard a scream from the bathroom. She said Shenell
had turned the hot water on in the tub, scalding the baby
But autopsy and medical reports did not support any of those scenarios,
Johnson initially was charged with felony child abuse but that charge was
upgraded to murder when Tia died.
Company offers fife insurance to people with HIV
CHICAGO (AP) -AIDS advocates are cheering the decision of an insurance
company to offer life insurance to people with HIV a move seen by many as
a recognition of the significant advances made in treating the illness.
Gimmnrrw Trust Life Insurance has become the first in the nation to offer
life insurance, albeit expensively, to people infected with HIV The
Glenview-baaed company specializes in insuring high-risk individuals and is
test-marketing the coverage in Illinois.
The treatment that has helped prolong the lives of people infected with
the AIDS virus involves an expensive combination of drugs that includes a
new kind called a protease inhibitor.
State Rum and Allstate, two of the nation's largest insurers, said they have
no plans to offer life insurance to HIV-positive individuals.
The Guarantee Trust policies cost about 1300 a month for $50,000 of cov-
erage. That compares to $55 a month for a fairly healthy 30-year-old man who
Salazar of AIDS Action noted the cost would be prohibitively high for
Escaped inmate kills wife, later kilted by deputies
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - An inmate broke out of jail Tuesday, shot and

deputies shot him to death outside a relative's home.
Stallworth, who was serving a one-year sentence for abusing his wife and
fleeing arrest, would hue been released Nov. 1, Craig said.
Stallworth, who worked a kitchen job reserved for the most trusted
inmates, somehow slipped out of his cell, got a gun and went looking for his
wife, who had visited him just two days earlier.
A witness said Stalrworth was waiting on a neighbor's lawn for his wife,
who drove up with her 6-year-old daughter in the car. When the woman saw

Stallworth fired several shoes at the car, then ran to the passenger side
door and grabbed the girl, Craig said, it was not clear whether Stallworth was

Campus ministry group, SGA embroiled in funding
fiasco after miscommunication
MINORITY STUDENT ISSUES
Recently, SGA has been accused by
ECU's New Generations Campus
Ministries of withholding approved
funds for a collegiate Christian con-
ference they attended on March 27-
30. The donated funding was to
cover half the bus and registration
fee, which came to an estimated
total of $1,000, said junior and
NGM President Bruce Stevens.
Moreover, NGM representatives
were told by appropriation heads on
March 17 that SGA would cover the
$1,000 amount and pay this sum
before or soon after the conference.
After receiving SGA's verbal com-
mitment, NGM went on to raise
$1,300 to pay the remaining balance
of the estimated $2,200 bus charge.
The next day, however, on March
18, SGA President Angela Nix,
vetoed the request because it was
not turned in at the designated time
two months prior to the conference.
Also, if SGA decided to pay the
money after the conference, it
would be considered a reimburse-
ment, which SGA was unwilling to
It was not until a week later on
March 25, two days before the con-
ference, that NGM was notified
SGA had denied to pay their half of
the bus fee.
Immediately, NGM representa-
tives went to Dean Speier and Dr.
Brian Hanes of Minority Student
Affairs for help, only to find out SGA
was the sole organization to handle
problems concerning the student
On April 9, Stevens met with
Nix, who told :hem nothing could
be done to improve their situation .
She also told them on March 31,
the legislature decided not to
review it anymore.
However, later NGM found the
legislature never voted on the
request, which permitted them to
go before legislature on April 14 to
override the president's veto with a
It was at that SGA meeting that
the legislature was supposed to pay
the amount due because NGM had
already been told they would
receive the funding. SGA members
then voted 27 to 5 in favor of paying
the money due to the group.
"Government policies should be
checked and reviewed along with
what is communicated to the repre-
sentatives Stevens said.
Nix argued at the April 14 meet-
ing that giving the money to NGM
would' be a reimbursement.
Nonetheless, since all of the bus
fare money was not paid to the bus
company, it was not truly consid-
ered a reimbursement.
"Since reimbursement is not
defined clearly, we were able to give
the money said SGA member and
freshman Jamar Wright.

officials for further comment were

Kidney Foundation looking for old cars
The National Kidney Foundation of N.C. is looking for used, unwanted and hard to sell cars. The Kidney Foundation
is asking people to donate these vehicles to the organization and help save lives.
The organization plans to sell the cars at statewide auctions or have their parts recycled and used for scrap metal,
plastic and valuable parts.
The funds raised will be used for the foundation's drive programs.
The cars will be picked up free of charge. Donors will receive a letter for tax purposes and will determine the
value of the vehicle because it is a charitable contribution.
For more information or to donate a vehicle call 1-888-288-CARS.

Once he arrived at ECU, fersson
said his transition was actually very
easy, thanks to good support ser-
vices from International Affairs, who
organized an orientation so the
exchange students would know
what to expect.
Once classes end, Fersson is hop-

longer to do some traveling, then go
back to Sweden to finish his degree.
He eventually hopes to come back
to the U.S. and work for a European
company based in the US and gain
more international experience to
add to the past year.

Drugs are not just a Greek problem, they are a societal problem.
, The near fatal overdoses of two students reported in the April 16 edition of TEC are a reflection of a problem
indicative of the entire ECU community.
. Editors at TEC met the two students who were found lying unconscious and not breathing on the 10th Street
� lawn of several fraternity members. While we chose to withhold the students' names from the article, it occurred
to us they were perfect images of the "average" ECU student. Walking to classes everyday we pass hundreds of stu-
o dents similar to them. These two students are symbolic of everyone and the problem they represent is everyone's
The drug which these students ingested, GHB, is being labeled by authorities as a new designer drug. Some
ople may wonder how educated, sane people could consciously ingest a drug and then dare to call themselves
victims. For example, heroin and crack users are often considered to be pariahs of society; few people would say
hat users are victims, except of maybe themselves. How, then, are the two anonymous students any different?
"sll, the drug they took is different. GHB is illegal to sell but it is not, at least for the time being, an illegal drug
' As a matter of fact, it is a "bathtub" drug. Users purchase a substance from a nutrition store and manipulate it
' as they please. There is no set recipe and consequently, there is no continuity of strength. Taking GHB one Friday
before you go downtown may prove to be an "enjoyable" experience, but taking another batch of GHB the follow-
; ing Friday, before a late night party, may prove deadly.
The ugliest part of GHB is that even students who shy away from marijuana and alcohol may be led to believe
GHB is a harmless thrill. After all, GHB users aren't being arrested and the drug produces euphoria as well as
increased sensitivity to touch. With a nickname like scoop, how bad could it be? Apparently, given the case of the
, two anonymous students, pretty damn bad.
(' What the students told us was they were lucky to be alive, free from brain damage and able to return Monday
to find their place among thousands of other students. The potential side effects include vomiting, seizures, loss
of bladder control and amnesia. When mixed with alcohol as is commonly done, GHB effects a users' ability to
breathe. At best, a user who experiences one of these side effects just urinates all over themselves. At worst, they
die, as in the case of a Texas teenager who died several months ago.
The ECU community has a real problem on its hands. This drug isn't imported from some South American
country. Local people, including students, are making this drug in their homes and selling it or giving it to friends.
Although GHB has a salty taste, it can be mixed with various spices such as cinnamon in order to be undetectabie
in a drink. GHB can be used as a date rape drug as potentially devastating as Rohypnol or "roofies
A drug which is easy to concoct and potentially deadly, yet perceived by many as harmless, is a nasty problem.
TEC would like to encourage students who may be manufacturing GHB in their homes to stop before they pass
i" along a bad batch to friends.
Pass along the word: GHB, or liquid ecstasy, or scoops is not, as rumor has it, a harmless drug which can be bought at local
Off-campus living worth extra cost
Wt all know that living on campus
is cheaper than living in an apart-
ment. When you live in a residence
hall, you do not have as many bills as
you do in an apartment. Therefore,
you save money. If you think about all
the money a student spends each
semester while living in an apart-
ment, you'll be surprised at the figure
you come up with. Living on campus
also provides you with easy access to
However, sometimes it's worth
sacrificing your money for your happi-
University Housing does have its
quirks. Yes, there needs to be rules so
that everyone can live peacefully
beside each other. However, some-
times the rules get to be a little

apartment, you do not have to worry
about who's in your room and at what
time. (Unless you get a lot of surprise
visits from Mom and Dad.) There are
no visitation hours. You don't need to
"escort" your guest when they leave.
And guess what, you can also have
more than 6 people in your apartment
without it being considered a "party
Another positive aspect of living in
an apartment is the bathroom. Think
about how many people use the bath-
rooms in the residence halls. You have
to wear shower shoes to the bathroom
to keep your feet clean after you take
a shower. If you live in an apartment,
and provided that you do keep it
clean, you don't have to worry about
shower shoes, or who was in the show-
er before you were. All you have to do
is share it with one or two people. Not
bad, considering that in the residence
halls, you share it with over 20 people.
And guess what? You even get to pick
out your very own shower curtain.
The residence halls also have a
problem with holidays. For some rea-
son, most of the dorms close during
the holidays, leaving some student
abandoned. What happens to the stu-
dents who have to stay in town and
work? That's when apartments come
into the picture. All you do is sign a
lease and put down a deposit. That
way, you can stay as long as you want
over the holidays and over the sum-

On campus living is important for
a student's first year at college. It
gives them an opportunity to meet
people, become adjusted to the uni-
versity, and to save money. However,
after the first year, it's time for a stu-
dent to gain more responsibility.
When you live in an apartment you do
have a lot of responsibilities. You have
bills to pay by a certain date. You have
to clean and keep up with your apart-
ment. But, at least you are finally on
your own. You can do what you want
whenever you want to. You don't have
to worry about Resident Advisors or
parents. The only things you need to
do are pay your bills on time, be con-
siderate to your neighbors and to your
roommates, and most importantly,
you have to be that responsible per-

Greek takes GHB incident too lightly
lb the Editor,
I am writing to comment on the
article printed in the April 15 issue of
TEC. The article covered the GHB
incident that occurred on April 4.
Actually my commentary is not on the
article itself, but on the views put
forth by Sigma Pi President Jeff
Yurfest. Rw those of you who aren't
familiar with the article I am referring
to I'll bring you up to speed.
On April 4, a 22-year-old ECU stu-
dent and a 21-year-old PCC student
were found on the lawn of 506 East
10th Street at a Sigma Pi late night.
The two students were not breathing
and were taken to Pitt County
Memorial Hospital (PCMH) near
death, where they were revived with
the aid of respirators. Both students
were released the next day. The East
Carolinian printed an article regarding
the incident and the following is what
Mr. Yurfest had to say about it:
"Jeff Yurfest, President of Sigma
R, expressed concern that GHB was
becoming too popular and people
were associating it with fraternities.
They were downtown drinking
and came here during a late night
Yurfest said. 'They apparently took
the GHB, but I have no idea if they
took it here or not. I got home from
work and there were two people
passed out in our yard
"Yurfest said he fears the incident
will cause people to associate the drug
with the Greek system.
Neither of them were members
of this fraternity or of the Greek sys-
tem Yurfest said. 'They just hap-
pened to be here when they col-
lapsed. I could have happened any-
where but it kind of sucks that it hap-
"Yurfest also emphasized that the
house on 10th Street is the home of a
few fraternity members and not the
Sigma Pi fraternity house.
We have never had this kind of
problem here Yurfest said, it isn't
like someone was passing it GHB
out from the fraternity. It's a shame
after all the effort that the Greeks
have put in to clean up our image on
this campus that something like this
I can appreciate Mr. Yurfest's con-
cern regarding the image of his and
other fraternal organizations on this
campus, especially after "all the effort
that the Greeks have put into clean
up our image on campus and I am in
no way laying blame on Mr. Yurfest,
Sigma Pi or the Greek system for the
The problem I have is that two
people, two of our peers, almost died.
They almost died. They almost died
and all Mr. Yurfest can say is that "it
kind of sucks that it happened here
Not a word of concern about the two
My point is, if you want people to
respect you, if you want your peers'
admiration, then when a situation like
this arises, be concerned with the
welfare and health of the two stu-
dents who almost died and not with
your image. If you do this with com-
passion and integrity, then you will
get the respect and image you so des-
Editor puts wrong words in writer's mouth
lb the Editorial Board,
Thank you for running my column
about B-GLAD. However, as I read
over the article as it was printed in the
paper, I noticed that an editorial 'cor-
rection" has been made to it which
changes the meaning of my state-
ments. In the fifth paragraph, I am
quoting an acquaintance of mine as
saying " I checked their feb site and I
decided that anyone who says that
AIDS is the best thing that ever hap-
pened to them isn't worth talking to
The word "homosexuals" was
added by the editor after the word
"them which gives the impression
that I am discussing homosexuals in
general. I was not. I was using the word
"them" as a neuter pronoun to refer to
the specific person mentioned by
Another Way's Web site. I do not think
.AIDS is the best thing to happen to
homosexuals (or to most anyone).
AIDS is a horrible disease and a tragic
affair. I would not wish it on anyone. I
offer my apologies to anyone who
received the impression that I desire
homosexuals to have AIDS. That is
not, and never has been my position.
Lifestyle choice isn't right, Christians say
To the Editor,
In his article Can't we all just get
along?" John Davis first points out that
the members of B-GLAD shouid have
contacted a member of .Another Way so
that "Dialogue is opened up between
the two groups, and then some judg-
ments can be made I agree with Mr.
Dims an rhar noirr

Mr. Davis was making some judgments
To the Editor,
This area of your paper is for us to
state our opinions, and as long as it
doesn't offend or attack another per-
son I have no problem. But after
weeks of students attacking one
another on a topic no one completely
understands, I was finally offended.
In the April 15 article written by B-
GLAD's president and treasurer no
tonry was I surprised but shocked by
what was said.
I feel that gays and lesbians all
have rights that are no different from
heterosexuals. However, when you
bring in religion, Christianity, and a
To the Editor,
I am writing this letter in response
to Lora Josey and Rich Elkins' article
on Tuesday, April 15. First I want to
let everyone know that I am a bom
again believer and a follower of Jesus
Christ, my personal savior. In spite of
comments Lora and Rich made, they
are inaccurate. The comment, "Many
mainline Christian churches do not
share this group's (Another Vfoy Out)
narrow-minded opinion of the issue of
orientation. That they affirm our rela-
tionships and support the spiritual
growth of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and
individuals who are questioning their
orientation, is not true. In the Bible
(NIV), I Corinthians 6:9 says, "Do
you not know that the wicked will not
inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not
be deceived; neither the sexually
immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterer,
nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual
offenders, nor thieves will inherit
the Kingdom of God
Before you think I am bashing
of his own. At the end of his article,
when he relates an incident he "heard
about" concerning InterVarsity
Christian Fellowship, he seems to make
a fairrv strong judgment of their actions
by stating that the girl was "harshly
treated If this is an incident lie only
heard about, and did not research, then
I hardly rhintr ir if fair far htm to ht
making that sort of judgment call. Not
only that, but he is doing the very thing
part of my life that I feel very strong-
ly about, it bother me that you feel
something is true that is completely
wrong. Therefore I would like to clear
up a statement that was made that
could confuse someone struggling
with their religious stance. If they are
stating that they are Christians and
that the church they attend supports
their homosexuality, then their
church is mislead and so are they.
First of all, I attend a Southern
Baptist Church and I know that the
Southern Baptist Association does not
support the act of homosexuality or
bisexualiry. I feel, as they stated that
someone, let me explain. I believe in
the Bible and I am a God-fearing man.
It says in God's Word that homosexu-
ality is a sin, and anyone committing
this act will not be part of God's
Kingdom. I do not hate or disrespect
I believe that what they do is
wrong and is a sin. The Christian
church does not support homosexual-
ity, as B-GLAD has you to think.
There are numerous verses in the
Bible that point out that homosexual-
ity is a sin. Hebrews 13:4 says,
"Marriage should be kept pure, for
God will judge the adulterer and all
the sexually immoral
Revelation 21:8 sas, "But the
cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile,
the murderers, the sexually immoral-
their place will be in a fiery lack of
burning sulfur So this shows God is
against homosexuality and Christian
church does not, I repeat, does not
support the sexual immoralities of
this world. I love all people and I want
for which he chastised B-GLAD, that
is, coming to a snap decision. While I
agree with Mt Davis' idea that we
should all be willing to talk with each
other and learn about one another, I
feel that he might want to exercise
some of the same wisdom he seems to
want from everyone else.
they do need spiritual growth and
guidance. A homosexual relationship
is not recognized as "True Love" in
God's eyes nor should it be for
Christians. If it was, then we would ail
be of the same sex. God would have
created Adam and then Bill.
I believe that by our modem day
society you have the right to love who
you want. However, please do not use
my religion and the true Christian
Church as a back up for something
that we do not support.
all of the B-GLAD individuals to real-
ize that God loves you, but if you are
living in sin, you will not make it to
heaven. I urge you to think about
Another Wiy Out.
Jesus Christ is real and is coming
back soon. So please repent of your
sins and turn from these wicked ways.
"For God so loved the world that he
gave his only begotten son, that
whosoever believes in Him shall not
perish, but have everlasting life"
All you have to do is ask Jesus into
your heart and make Him Lord of
your life. Here is a repentance prayer
"Jesus, I repent of my sins and confess
that You are the only way of salvation
for me. I want to ask you into my
heart and be my Lord and Savior.
Help me in this life and when I die,
take me to Heaven to be with you.

The thing about INXS is that they

stars than they have been at being
musicians. Pretty boy Michael

Lysistrata closes out season for ECU Playhouse
ASSISTANT LIFESTVLE EDITOR
Ever since the sexual revolution of the late '60s, popular media has increasing-
ly become more liberal with its use of sexual themes. Now, the days of separate
beds popularized by such classic TV situation comedies as Love Lucy and The
Dick Km Dyke Shorn are absurd. When you turn on the tube on any given evening
these days, sex flourishes all over the screen. Comedies like Friends and Seinfeld
pride themselves with sexual humor, and audiences can't get enough of it.
But sexual comedies arc not a new thing. No, they've been around long
before the rebellious '60s ever dawned. In tact, sexuality was a favorite topic for
many ancient playwrights, most notably Aristophanes.
Aristophanes is the author of the oldest surviving sex situation comedy,
Lysistrata, and Greenville is in for a night of laughter when the East Carolina
Playhouse brings this uproarious play to life, beginning today and running
through Tuesday, April 22.
While Lysistrata is a hilarious story, its narrative beginnings are not so humor-
ous. Aristophanes wrote the play as a passionate response to the Petoponnesian
Wat, a war which had plagued Athens and its citizens for over 20 years. Lysistrata
was Aristophanes' way of begging for a cease to the mindless carnage that was
lirtering the land. But, as opposed to striking the senses of people through
straight drama, Aristophanes used satire.
The plot of the play, translated for the contemporary stage by Nicholas
Rudall, revolves around a woman named Lysistrata and her desire to get the
women of Athens to revolt against the men in power. The women want an end.
to war, but the men will not listen. Having no power in the military or in poli-
tics, the women use the one power they do possess - their bodies. The women
all agree to deny men any sex until all the needless bloodshed is put to a stop.
Comedic conflict develops when not only the men become restless with lack
of intimate pleasure, but the women do as well. Lysistrata soon finds herself in
the very difficult position of being the one who can keep her female followers
from giving in to their earrhry desires.
In addition to a lively story powered by the direction of John Shearin,
Lysistrata will treat its audience with singing and dancing to new music written
by staff music director Mort Stine.
After the success of Suburbia, Lysistrata should prove to be an appropriate way
for the ECU Playhouse to close out its 1996-97 season, a season filled with many
daring and energetic productions.

ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Last summer, a film called Courage Under Fire
played Greenville theaters. It was a solid piece of
cinematic escapism and an acting showcase for
stars Denzel Washington and Meg Ryan. The
basic plot revolved around one man's quest for tac-
tual truths, truths that seemed to be twisted
depending on who told their own version of the
same story. While Courage was not what I would
consider a masterpiece, it intelligently touched
upon important issues of history. What this film
struggled to illustrate is the fact that history is a
narrative written by those who tell the story. Many
critics, including myself, praised the film. It was a
good movie destined to be a Hollywood block-
Another film dealing with the similar theme of
history as narrative was released around the same
time last year, but it was lost in the debris of big-
ger, highly publicized hits. This film was noticed
by the critical community and was cited by many
as one of the best films of 19. It was the latest
masterpiece by independent filmmaker John Sayles, who once
again proved that well-told stories backed by strong actors por-
traying believable characters can carry a much greater punch
than any number of special effects, grand explosions or big-
While Sayles 'Sor oi Pas ' 'rely put a dent in the
national box office t hen compa. u . likes c other major
Hollywood releases), .i still -arrieo so much arti�: c itegrity
and originality that it is destined to secure a ptee in history as
a modern-day classic.
This small independent wonder was known as Lonesmr, and
even though it missed our local theaters, it is now available on
video for all to enjoy.
On the surface, the plot of Lonestar is simple enough. The
skeletal remains of a human are discovered in the wasteland of
Frontera, a small Texas community plagued with racial and
class divisions, impending poverty and legal corruption.
Eventually, the skeleton is revealed to be the remains of
Charley Wade (Kris Kristofferson), a corrupt sheriff who ruled
the town with an evil fist some 30 years earlier. The current
sheriff, Sam Deeds (Chris Cooper), is determined to find out
who murdered Charley, especially since he suspects his father.
Buddy (Matthew MCConaughey).
Apparently, Buddy and Charley had a confrontation the
night Charley disappeared along with $10,000. Shortly after
Charley's disappearance, Buddy became sheriff.
While Buddy was not a saint of a sheriff, he was highly
respected by his community. Corrupt or not. Buddy was a wel-
come substitute for Charley. This fact only complicates Sam's
search for the truth because the community seems determined
to bury its tainted history.
Sayles (who served as the film's writer, director, producer,
editor, caterer, chauffeur, dishwasher, etc etc.) conjures up a
classic mystery narrative, but, like all his films, Lonestar is not
so easily categorized. Several subplots flow throughout the
story, all concerning the truths of history.
In addition to Sam's story, we are witness to the lives of Col.
Delmore Payne (Joe Morton), an aspiring soldier who is forced
to confront a father he never had; Delmore's son, Chet (Eddie
Robinson), who goes behind his father's back to learn about his
family's past; and Pilar Cruz (Elizabeth Pena), a school teacher

sberrif Charlie Wade in John Sayles' new film Lonestar.

whose buried personal history is brought back to the surface by
the reemergence of an old love.
Sayles' ability to create complex stories that all connect
thematically is unsurpassed here. He explores such themes as
familial divisions, racism, corrupt power and destiny, and he
does so with the controlled, expert precision of a professional.
In lesser hands, this film would be a muddled mess; with
Sayles, it is an exercise in craftsmanship.
For example, Sayles breathlessly transcends his narrative
from the present to the past and back again with a simple pan
of the camera. No flashy jump cuts, no cheesy fade-outs and
fade-ins. Instead, he crosses time by simply moving his camera
from one fixed point to another, a simple technique that has
As much as this is Sayles' film, he must share credit. The
compositional cinematography by Stuart Dryburgh perfectly
captures the bitter heat and sweat of the decaying Texas
desert, which is given a mythic presence by the indigenous
music of Mason Daring.
And no Sayles film can be critiqued without mentioning the
actors. Sayles is cne of a handful of directors who truly under-
stands the art of acting. Time and time again, he pulls career-
making performances from his cast, and this is no exception.
Everyone has their moment to shine, but standing tall are
Cooper and Kristofferson, who portray polar opposites of jus-
As Sheriff Sam Deeds, Cooper carries with him a sense of
emotional drain, someone who has had everything he cared for
ripped from him. Sam's determination to dig up the truth is
impenetrable, but so is his sense of isolation.
On the flip side, Kristofferson turns in the best perfor-
mance of his long career. A simple wink of ins eye and cocky
curl of his lip is enough to fill his corrupt sheriff with the wrath
and violence of pure evil. Kristofferson's physical presence
makes Charley an icon of fear, even without a pistol at his side.
It's a bravura performance with minimal screen time.
For the longest time, I have boasted that Martin Scorsese,

it failed miserably. It was the first

Atlantic Records and INXS parted
ways after that album, and so, when
INXS recently signed on with
Mercury, they were teamed up with
producer Bruce Fairbairn, who has
gained the most notoriety for moving
Van Halen from being merely silly to
actually sucking. (You know, he was
the guy who produced Balance.) Well,
sorry to say, on Elegantly Wasted
Fairbairn has managed to reduce
INXS to nothing more than a group
There are a few good songs on the
disc, but they're nothing special. The
best song on the album, "Don't Lose
Your Head might actually chart, but
it's really nothing more than a tribute
to early John Cougar. It even has the
drum machine handclaps in it.
For the most part though, this
album is a nostalgic trip to the days
when Kuk and X were all over the
charts. The album's opener, "Show

songs with saxophone solos, doesn't
play his sax on this disc at all, except
for a smattering on "I'm Just A Man
The band has three guitarists and
barely any guitars on the album. If I

the whole album was just a marketing
trick to give Michael Hutchence a
reason to prance around and show off

Madonna to come under academic scrutiny
COLLEGE PRESS SERVICE
Pop star Madonna, one of the world's best-known celebrities, is to come
under academic scrutiny.
The University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands said it was beginning a
course of study titled "Madonna: the music and the phenomenon
The course will run for ten weeks with four hours of lectures per week,
examining Madonna's work and articles about her controversial career. So far,
63 students have enrolled.
"We think it's high time that pop music is studied. Madonna is the most
famous female pop artist of the last 15 years and has expressed interest in
many social issues said one of the course instructors, Mark van den Berg.
Van den Berg, who holds a doctorate in computational linguistics, said
Madonna's examinations of racism, sexuality and feminism provided ample
material for academic investigation.
But there were no plans to invite the star to make a personal appearance.
Madonna, above in bunny suit, is now the topic of scholarly discussion. Go figure.

First place in eyes of softball team
ECU's softball team has finished
their regular season and is currently
tied for first place with Coastal
Carolina in the Big South
Conference. The Lady Pirates (13-3
in the Big South) may be heading
into the tournament as the number
one seed, a position that will earn
them a bye m found one of the con-
ference battle to be held May 2-4.
Coastal Carolina's team has 10
more conference games scheduled
within the next two weeks. One loss
will move Coastal Carolina our of the
tie for first place and will hand a con-
ference sweep to ECU.
Rhonda Rost, a senior member of
the I�ady Pirate tribe, said it's a relief
to have the conference games over
with and to be in such a apod position
at this point of the season.
"We can focus now without so
much pressure Rost said. "We are
concentrating on staying consistent
and continuing to move forward
The team has broken the ECU
softball record for the most seasonal
wins with a 43-18 overall record. Prior
to this year, the record was held with
42 wins. According to Rost, the Lady
Pirates have learned a lot this year
through playing a diverse mix of
"We have played so many differ-
cnt teams at so many different levels,

but we also know how it feels to
Last year, the Lady Pirates fin-
ished in second place in the Big
South Conference. Heading into the
tournament as the conference new-
comers and, therefore, underdogs,
ECU had to beat UNC Greensboro
twice in order to sweep the title.
They set out in thc right direction,
with a 19-3 victory in game one, but
lost game two 4-3, thus handing thc
19 conference title over to UNC-
Rost said the team is in a much
better position now than tl were at
this point last season.
"W: did okay last year, but we
weren't the team everyone out there
was looking to beat Rost said. "I
knew we had a good chance to domi-
nate this year because we are a very
solid team with so many experienced
players. Everyone has really pulled
together and done their job
The team's ultimate goal, to make
it to the NCAA Championships, is
one that can obviously be reached by
maintaining the same mental atti-
tude that has been held since the
girls first stepped out on the field in
August. At thc rate the Lady Pirates
arc going, it is more than likely this
goal can and will be reached. The
championship is scheduled to be
held in Oklahoma in late May.
Netters prepare for conference matches
Wfoneifs tennis team heads to CM
The ECU women's tennis team bid their regular season farewell as they
prepare for this week's CAA Championships. The Lady Pirates ended thc
regular season with five consecutive wins, two from forfeited matches.
Appalachian State forfeited its match on Friday, April 12 and Louisburg
College did the same for the match whkh was scheduled to be played in
Greenville on Tuesday.
The last match in whkh the Pirates actually faced opponents was
Sunday, April 13. The ladies took care of business in Hickory, defeating
N.C. A&T in the morning match and Belmont Abbey later that same after-
noon, Both of the victories were shutouts, winning by the score of 6-0 each
ECU finished thc regular season with a 13-9 overall record and a 3-2 con-
ference record. The conference losses were dealt to the Pirates in back-to
back blows by James Madison and Old Dominion. On April 5 thc Pirates lost
to JMU 1-8 and to ODU by the same score the very next day.
Or' the seven ladies on the team, five finished with individual winning
seasons. Mona Eck, a junior transfer student from Norway paved the way
with a 14-5 records, going 2-0 at the No. 2 position, and 12-5 at the No. 3
spot. Anne-Birgjttc Svae, who is also from Norway, wasn't far from Eek's
position a 12-7 finish. Svae was the only Pirate to play in the No. 1 spot all
Thc other Pirates who had a winning season were Catherine Morgan
(10-9), Gina MacDonald (11-7) and the lone freshman on the team, Corissa
Holfyn Gordon, the only senior on the team, finished with a 9-11 record.
Gordon completes her career at ECU with an overall winning record of 32-
28. junior Rachael Cohen finished 7-8 and played the No. 2 position in
every one of her matches this season.
The CAA Championships will begin tomorrow April 18, and go through
Sunday April 20. The tournament will be held on the campus of Old
Dominion University in Norfolk.

was held in the Student Recreation Center on Saturday, April 5. The
purpose of the tournament was to increase awareness of martial arts and
to encourage participants to sharpen their skills by inviting martial arts
clubs to participate from all over North Carolina, Virginia, and South
Carolina. The tournament was hosted by the Department of
Recreational Services. Four divisions competed in various ranks and ages
with the participants competing in forms, weapons, and fighting. The
competitors ranged in age from six to 44 yean old. Sensei Kevin
Gurganus from Durham won Grand Champion in Black Belt Kara and
The clubs recieved much support from the region's surrounding
schools, as well as support from the business community. A local martial
arts instructor, Sensei Charles June, and his black belt team members
judged the competition.
This tournament will be an annual event, and could grow to be one
of the largest of its size on the East Coast.
The mariiii arts club recently held a tournament in the Student Recreation
Center. This tournament will now be an annual event.

Lady Pirates hope to
sprint to victory
ZINA BRi LEV
The Lady Pirate track and field team has had an incredible season this year,
rewriting the record books in several running and field events. This weekend
they travel to UNC-Wilmington for their conference meet, where they will
try to recapture their second place title.
If the Lady Pirates continue with their hot streak, they might give the
"hard to beat" George Mason squad a run for their money and hold off the
rest of thc pack who are trying to knock thc Pirates out of their three year
second place standing.
Coach "Choo" Justice has faith in his girls d with performances earlier
in the season from veterans Amanda Johnson, in the long jump, Lave Wilson
in both the long and triple jump, and Michdle Tunic" Clayton in the shot
put, hammer throw and discus, it's easy to le optimistic
Last weekend, despite bad weather, a few Lady Pirates competed at
Duke Invitational and their performances can only intensify the excitement
building up for this weekend's big meet. Clayton, who placed fourth in thc
women's hammer throw with a 172'6" throw, which was an NCAA qualifying
distance, was one of the top finishers. The toss was also a new school record
and personal best for Clayton. She finished among two former Olympians.
Wilson finished third in the triple jump, leaping a distance of 39'8 34
while up-and-coming freshman Leana Anding finished eighth with a jump of
37 1 It was the first time Anding had reached the finals.
Kerri Harding put in a star performance in the women's 10,000 meters.
Harding crossed thc finish line in ninth place with a time of 37:59.25, meet-
ing ECAC qualifying standards.
Finishing up the weekend Missy Johnson hurdled into third place with
her season's best in the women's 400 meter in a time of 15.14.
Look for the Pirates this weekend along with the jumping duo of Johnson
and Wilson and the throwing genius of Clayton, along with Darlene Vick,
Leigh Brannon, Theresa Donovan, and Jennifer Prevatt, freshman sprinting
hopefuls Rasheca Barrow, Nikki Goins, Carmen Weldon and Kai Eason and
the rest of the Lady Pirate gang as they prepare to dominate the competition

Lacrosse team posts tournament win
. CONTRIHTIM. WRIIKK
The ECU Lacrosse team, ranked
seventh out of 80 teams in the
National Collegiate lacrosse league,
won the Camp Lejeune
Tournament this past weekend.
However, ECU didn't just win; they
won most decisively, outscoring their
opponents 68-10 overall.
The first game ECU played was
against N.C. Wesleyan. Marked by
thc historic first goal of B.W, the
Pirates stomped Wesleyan 24-0.
This was the team's final step
towards the playoffs
and gave them the divi-
sional title with a
record of 9-0 in league
play. The next game,
played during a torren-
tial downpour, was
another close one; here
the Pirates walked away

Before the game, both teams
lined up on the foul lines and a half-
