"Right now. 1 am only aware of the one incident that

Williams of the Greenville Police Department said.
"However, as I understand it. there have been several cases
in the last M) days documented at Pitt Co. Memorial
Hospital that have invoked the drug
One of the biggest problems with GHB is the unpre-
dictability with individuals. A half a dose to one person
could have the effect of five or six doses on another. It is
also very cheap, with 9-li) doses usually costing about $10.
It is currently illegal only in Georgia, but is illegal to sell all
over the VS. It was sold for a short time to body builders,
although no positive effects on performance in bodybuild-
ing have ever been proven.
GHB was developed as an anesthetic in Europe and is
still in limited use there. Because of its unpredictable side
effects, it has been discarded by most of the medical com-
It was first discovered by authorities in the U.S. at the
University of North Florida during a routine surveillance of
the campus. Two 18-year olds were apparently given a dose
b an older man. who was carrying one of the 18-vear olds
out of a wooded area with the second 18-year old stumbling
beside him. Both lapsed into a comatose state soon after
their discovery, and three vials of a pink, cinnamon smelling
liquid were found. The suspect confessed that this was
Users of this drug are looking for a quick high, usually
followed by periods of heavy sedation. It usually takes 15-
36 minutes after ingestion for GHB to take effect. It is a
clear, oily liquid that has a slightly salry taste, and is often
mixed with cinnamon to help kill the taste, giving it a pink
tint. Many people try to make it in their home, and then
distribute it in small bottles, such as hotel shampoo bot-
tles. This is a major problem according to many officials.
Because of the inexact process of making it at home, it is
likely that a user can get a bad dose of it and experience
side effects ranging from dizziness and confusion to amne-
sia or respiratory collapse. Ingredients of the homemade
mixture include such chemicals as Gamma-Bury .olactone,
vinegar and charcoal.
While often mixed with water, some users chase the
drug with alcohol, which can produce deadly results.
"Mixing any drug with alcohol can produce unpre-
dictable side effects and definitely causes the drug to act
quicker said Donna Walsh, director of health promotion
and well-being at ECU.
The addition of alcohol to a drug
has proven deadly to some users, and
mixing the two is believed to be the
cause of the death of River Phoenix,
along w ith many others.
While there have been compar-
isons between GHB and Rophypnol,
or "roofies the general consensus is
that GHB is not a date rape drug
because it has a taste, whereas
"roofies" do not. There have been
incidents reported of men
slipping roofies into
women's drinks to make
them lose their inhibi-
tions and have sex with
them, but, unlike GHB
users, these women nor-
mally have no recollection
of what happened, while
GHB users usually
remember things except
in extreme cases.
GHB is a colorless and odorless
substance with a salty taste that
can easily be overcome by adding
cinnamon or other household
spices. Here the drug is shown
disguised in a mouthwash bottle.
Once added to an alcoholic bever-
age or mixed with other drugs,
the effects of GHB range from
mild to deadly.

In-line skates and

Violators must stand
before Dean of Students
Various campus organizations, including ECU s chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma, and local participants
of all ages enjoyed beautiful weather on Saturday during a walk-a-thon for the prevention and treat-
ment of cancer.

The days of skating into your seat in class
are ov er.
Dean of Students Dr. Ronald Speier wants
students to know that in-line skates, skate-
boards, bicycles and all similar Items are pro-
hibited from being used inside buildings. This
includes residence halls and academic build-
"My fear is that the police are going to start
writing citations before the students are
aware of this (ban) Speier said.
Students caught by the ECU Police
Depaitment and Parking and Traffic Services
violating this rule will be issued campus
appearance tickets. This ticket will refer the
students to the deans office.
According to Speier, the first offense will
result in a warning. Subsequent violations will
result in further consequences which have not
yet been decided. Each offense will result in a
campus appearance ticket.
Speier is worried that students will be
harmed and may harm others if the objects
continue to be used indoors. People are riding
down stairs on them and bumping into others.
He advises students to treat rollerblades,
skateboards, etc. like any other wheeled vehi-
cles, such as cars, and keep them outdoors.
This is a concern not only due to protect-
ing the safety of students, but also because of
the damage rollerblades and skateboards are
doing to the buildings.
"We have a problem because in-line skates
are being brought into the buildings said
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Administration
and Finance-Facilities Dr. George Harrell.
According to Harrell, in-line skates and
skateboards cause the floors and carpets to be
damaged quicker than they would be under
"This (using these in buildings) ruins the
wax jobs and causes excessive wear and tear
on carpets and floors Harrell said. "They
(rollerblades and skateboards) were not
designed to be used indoors
The damage to the buildings was first
brought to attention by housekeepers who
reported that floors which had recently been
refinished were damaged. The floors are prop-
erly rewaxed and rebuffed once they have
been reported as damaged.
According to Harrell, this causes an
increase in the maintenance budget, but
there are no estimates as to how much of an
increase this will cause.
"Students can help us keep buildings in
better condition if they won't ride theit in-line
skates indoors Harrell said.
It is unclear if this ban is currently being
enforced, but, according to Speier, it will def-
initelv be in effect next fall.
Students encouraged to celebrate Earth Day everyday
II K I III ENVIKON V1K.NT VI I s s I K s
Today is the 27th Earth Day. One of the goals of Earth Day is
to encourage people to make everyday Earth Day
According to Hill Koch, director of the office of environmen-
tal health and safety, typical Earth Day activities include clean-
cams and parks. On campus people can take part every-
The office of environmental health and safety heads the
recycling program on campus. They recycle aluminum cans in
residence halls and paper in academic buildings. There is also a
11 iilet w huh is circulated around campus in which students can
deposit these items as well as glass, plastic and newspaper
V ffding to Koch, recycling is a state mandated program on
campuses and ECU does a large amount of recycling
Between July 1995 and June Wo, H242 pounds of alu-
minum cans were recycled. In addition to this. 532540 pounds
of newsprint, an estimated WK)0 pounds of glass and 236,570
pounds of office and computer paper were recycled.
Items do not need to be sorted when placed in the bins in
the trailers. According to Koch there are instructions on the side
of the trailer.
"We do generate some money (from recycling) and it goes
back into the recycling program for upgrades Koch said.
"Anybody on campus should look for the recycling trailer
and please get involved in the program Koch said. "We're real-
ly chewing up a lot of the landfill certainly in the country and
also in this area
In addition to recycling, students can conserve energy and
water, in their dorm rooms and apartments. According to Koch
water can be conserved by taking shorter showers and
installing water conservation shower heads.
"Water is one of the fotgotten resources but it also needs to
be conserved Koch said.
Energy can be conserved by turning off lights and televisions
when not in use. I sing screen savers on computers can also
save energy. Computers in labs on campus do have screen savers
which are used to help conservation.
Recycling centers like this large outdoor bin are visible all over
campus and especially in residence halls for the disposal of plastic
bottles and aluminum cans. Recycling daily is one of several ways
to reach Earth Day goals. Other ways include reducing the amount
of personal refuse (trash) and reusing certain plastic containers.

Area code decision process getting started
RALIEGH (AP)-State utility regulators were scheduled to begin considering
a proposal today to split North Carolina's three area codes into six.
A coalition of 22 telephone companies proposed the split to meet the
growing need for new telephone lines. The demand is fueled by increased
use of cellular telephones, computer modems and fax machines.
The telephone coalition would like a decision from the commission by
June 1 so it can start preparing equipment and customers for the changes.
Adding three new area codes to the state could mean the third phone
number change for some North Carolinians this decade.
The plan also would provide a new area code to Asheville, Hendersonville
and points west, replacing the current 704. And Greenville, Rocky Mount
and even the Outer Banks would get a new code to replace 919.
Other large metro areas - including Charlotte. Raleigh-Durham,
Fayetteville and Wilmington - would keep their current area codes.
Greensboro, High FAiint and Winston-Salem residents also would get a
new area code.
GOP lawyers lobby against further tort reform
RALEIGH (AP) - Republican lawyers across the state are lining up against a
proposal that wou'd require juries to be informed of insurance and other pay-
ments received by people who bring lawsuits.
Supporters of the bill, filed in the Legislature by Rep. Chuck Neely, R-
Wake, say it would keep people from being paid twice for the same injuries.
The opponents say the proposal, if passed, would allow wrongdoers to
benefit from their victims' prudence in having insurance coverage and other
The bill addresses a complicated area of the law that probably will have
the most effect on lawsuits resulting from automobile accidents.
Two years ago, the business and insurance lobby teamed up with
Republican lawmakers to push through major changes in the laws that gov-
ern how injured people sue companies.
But many Republican lawyers say these changes go too far.
Boy killed, six others injured as roller
TULSA. Okla. (AP) - Amusement park officials say a roller coaster was
inspected just two weeks before an accident that killed a 14-year-old boy and
injured six others.
One of the cars on The Wildcat was being pulled to the top of an incline
Sunday night when, just before reaching the crest, it slid 45 feet back down
the track and collided with another car, said Harry Baker, assistant fire chief.
Witnesses said the boy who died was in the front car. He was ejected, hit-
ting his head on one of the ride's metal bars.
Bell's Amusement Park was packed as visitors enjoyed a 25-cents-per-ride
promotion. The park remained open after the accident.
'ITie ride was inspected two weeks ago by the Oklahoma Department of
Labor, park president Robert Bell III said. He said all rides are inspected
once a year.
Two 14-year-old boys were in serious condition today at St. Francis
Hospital, spokeswoman Lisa Ingram said. A father, two of his daughters and
another young girl who was a family friend were treated and released.
The cause of the accident was unknown. Baker said the cars are pulled to
the top of the initial crest by a chain and are supposed to descend forward.
Sprint cutting international telephone rates
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Sprint is set to lower weekend rates for telephone
calls abroad as consumers benefit from the elimination of trade barriers and
increased traffic on the international network, USA Today reported today.
Sprint's announcement today will cut rates to as low as 10 cents per
mrnute on the weekend, making a call to England as cheap as a domestic call,
according to the report. Sprint had been charging 45 cents a minute.
Weekend calls to Germany, Italy and France will fall to 30 cents a minute,
from 45 cents now. Weekday rates are higher.
AT&T and MCI charge 12 cents a minute for calls to Britain, seven days
a week, 24 hours a day. All three carriers impose a $3 monthly fee for discount
Among the reasons for the cuts are a World Trade Organization pact in
February, which is opening the $580 billion global market. State-owned
monopolies are lowering rates charged to foreign carriers connecting to their
Also, traffic on the global network is growing, allowing big phone compa-
nies to buy access to other countries at lower bulk rates, Alcazar said.

tion attendees will be the first to receive the ECU One
Card. The card will bear the student's photograph and
name, and will be encoded with the student's identi-
fication number and other pertinent information. The
initial use of the ECU One Card will be for Dining
Services. Students will also be able to add monetary
value to an encoded magnetic stripe for use in campus copiers, vending
machines and event ticket purchases. Additional features will be added over
the course of the fall 1997 and spring 1998 semesters.

Environmental Sciences recently took
part in a project with the ECU
Student Stores. Twenty-eight stu-
dents from Asst. Professor Jayne Geissier's Visual Merchandising class paired
off to design and construct window displays for store promotions, holiday
themes and general topics. Each week, four display cases outside of the
Student Stores in the Wright Building were transformed into masterpieces
spotlighting such events as Mardi Gras, National Snack Food Week,
National Embroidery Awareness Week and ECU's 90th Anniversary
Celebration, as well as in-store promotions and sales.
As an incentive, the Student Stores awarded prizes for the best window
of the week during the month-long project, as well as an "overall" and a
"most memorable" prize. All students received a certificate of appreciation,
and enjoyed a class pizza party following the project. The creators of vin-
ning window displays received ECU sweatshirts.
Weekly winners were:

Good year workers on strike
in seven states
AKRON, Ohio (AP) - About 12,000
striking workers have set up picket
lines in seven states outside plants
of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co the
largest tiremaker in North America.
Discussions between Goodyear
and the United Stcclworkcrs of
America broke down late Saturday-
night just before the contract
expired at midnight, said union
spokesman Curt Brown.
The company and the union
agreed to resume talks today in
Cincinnati. Goodyear has vowed to
continue operations at its plants.
The first strike against the
Akron-based company since 1976
involves negotiations .on a new
three-year contract that began
Contract issues include wages
and benefits, but the union also
wants all contracts covering
Goodyear's 20,000 union employees
to expire at the same time. The
average Goodyear production worker
makes about $18 an hour.
Mike Runyon, a Goodyear worker
for 14 years in Lincoln, Neb said he
and his fellow 1,700 union workers
were prepared for the long haul.
"All we're asking for is to be treat-
ed fairly and equitably like any U.S.
worker, and to enjoy a standard of
living that any American worker
should enjoy he said.
The union has targeted
Goodyear and its Kelly-Springfield
Tire & Rubber Co. as a basis of this
year's negotiations with all its tire
and rubber industry labor contracts.
The talks in Cincinnati affect
workers at nine plants in Akron, St.
Marys and Marysville in Ohio;
Gadsden, Ala Union City, Tenn
Danville, Va Sun Prairie, Wis
Lincoln, Neb and Topeka. Kan.
Another 8,000 workers at eight
other Goodyear locations are work-
ing under different contracts. Those
include about 5,000 union workers
at Kelly-Springfield plants in
Freeport, III Tyler, Texas; and
Goodyear'employs about 90,000
"Goodyear intends to maintain
production during the strike to serve
its customers spokesman John
Perduyn said in a statement. "The
company has no intention or mort-
gaging its future by agreeing to a
contract that would widen a contrac-
tual disadvantage with its competi-
The union is negotiating on
behalf of Goodyear's hourly employ-
ees for the first time since the
United Rubber Workers merged into
its union in 1995.
The 90,000-member URW was
unable to make any progress to end
a strike it had called against
BridgcstoneFirestone Inc the
Nashville, Tennbased arm of
Tokyo-based Bridgestone. The
strike ended after the Steelworkers
union took over negotiations follow-
ing the merger.
Another concern among the
Goodyear union workers is job secu-
ri ty and the sending of work to other
companies. Goodyear recently
announced it would move produc-
tion of bias-ply race tires from Akron
to a plant in Santiago, Chile, result-
ing in the loss of about 150 jobs.
"That's the type of deterioration
we're concerned about Brown said.
But Goodyear officials said they
need a flexible contract to operate

Students, in a group, must fill an

can't get it with a calculator.

National Council of Teachers of
Mathematics, which in 1989 called
for a national overhaul of math
The council, worried about
America's math phobia and dropping
test scores, hoped to make math
more meaningful by changing from a
dry-as-chalk focus on drills, postu-
lates, definitions and proofs - the
memorization of tables and rules - to
a more real-world focus.
The council also recommended
that all grades use calculators.
"All of the research that we've
seen shows that children learn dif-

of mathematics education at
California State Polytechnic
University in Pomona and past pres-
ident of the national group. "For

The end is near, there's a light at the end of the tunnel that is the spring semester. But how
many papers have you got to do this week? How many exams do you need to study for? And have
you really packed a box to get out of your dorm room?
! Even though the end of classes is a week away, this is the week when students could begin
Co get stressed out. when stuff hits the fan for a couple of weeks. This is the week your profes-
sors and teachers will atcempt to give you that one last assignment, just a little something to
average into your already-suffering grade.
: This is the week a lot of important stuff will be going on in class and on campus, like Barefoot
on the Mall. And if Mother Nature is in a good mood, it will not be a week you want to be in
class. It will be a week you'll want to be outside, perhaps working on that Coppertone tan. It
will be a week during which you will look at the clock and convince yourself your teacher is not
only agoraphobic, but also photophobic.
� Remember this is the week you get to tell off, we mean honestly evaluate, your teachers. Isn't
the joy of being able to trash your instructor on a bubble sheet reason enough to go to class? This
is also the week the teachers will be looking at attendance and beginning to average things, like
I; This is the week those sun-fearing, outdoors-fearing teachers start reviewing material that
Will be making a return appearance on that butt-kicking exam that only counts for a massive
chunk of your final grade. Now are you really looking forward to walking in blind (and possibly
hungover) to a test that means that much?
And yes, it will be the last weekend until fall for one last bash when you really should be
studying for those four exams the next day. It will be the time to send off the graduating seniors
with a party not to be forgotten soon.
On top of all that studying, partying and socializing to cram in, Mom and Dad are expecting
that you'll have your packing entirely done when they pull in at 7 a.m. the day after your tough-
est exam and are ready to take their slave home for the summer.
We at TEC just want to remind you, our readers, not to stress out, but take the next couple
of weeks seriously; try a little time management. We're not saying study all day and go to bed
at 8 p.m. We're simply reminding you to have some common sense. Don't go to bed at 3 a.m.
and expect you'll be sunshiny and fully alert at 8 a.m. for that grade-defining exam.
Party after you've studied. Sleep in late during the exam schedule, just remember to study.
We want you back here in the fall. So, party and have fun, just remember to study and go to class.
You'll be glad you did when you walk out of that last exam, well-rested and ready to celebrate
how well you did on your exams.
Practice what you preach
lb the Editor,
In his article Can't we all just get
along?" John Davis first points out that
the members of B-GLAD should 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.
Davis on that point.
But I couldn't help but notice that
Mr. Davis was making some judgments
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 fairly strong judgment of their
actions by seating that the girl was
"harshly treated If this is an incident
he only heard about, and did not
research, then I hardly think it is fair for
him to be making that sort of judgment
call. Not only that, but he is doing the
very thing for which he chastised B-
GLAD, that is, coming to a snap deci-
sion. While! agree with Mt Davis' idea
that we should ail 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.
Learn to live with tolerance and respect
lb the Editor,
I am writing out of deep concern
about the recent escalation of gay vs.
anti-gay sentiments on campus. It is
extremely upsetting to witness so
many negative comments and hateful
remarks coming from both sides of the
This is America: "Land of the
Free a country founded on freedom
and tolerance. Why then are we so
intent on denying this freedom?
Our history is made up of struggles
for acceptance and equality. It is what
we have fought for. If we deny the
rights of one group, do we not deny the
rights of all Americans? Do we not
betray all that we have worked so hard
to preserve over the last 221 years?
This is also a university community.
Supposedly, we are all intelligent, edu-
cated people. fet, haven't we learned
anything? Look at Nazi Germany, look
at the McCarthy hearings, look at the
Jim Crow laws, look at ourselves. Have
we not learned anything? ,
Hatred, intolerance and violence
lead to more of the same. It is time for
both sides to stop. Stop judging; stop
attacking; stop taking sides. Vfe must
realize that there are differences
among all of us. Neither side will ever
convert the other, nor should we try.
instead, we must accept our differ-
ences and celebrate that we live in a
country that allows us to disagree.
Together, we must find a way to live
with tolerance and respect, because
divided, we will surely all perish.
ECU needs new registration process
To the Editor,
Did registration nearly kill anyone
a few weeks ago? My plan was sim-
ple�15 minutes before class I head-
ed to the registrar's office to compose
next semester's schedule. Two days
earlier, I sat in the hall outside my

Consider off-campus meal plans
To the Editor,
Throughout the past few weeks, I
have read about various concern on
how to better conditions at ECU
such as parking, registration and
other issues. Well, now I would like to
introduce an idea I have for improv-
ing ECU's dining.
Well, we all know how it is to go to
the mail, and stop by the Food Court
to grab something to eat at Chick-Fil-
A or Taco Bell. Weil, how would it
sound to be able to do that in the
convenience of your own backyard
using your meal card? I know we have
six places to eat on campus all which
are good places to eat, but wouldn't it
be nice to be able to use your meal
card in more placrs than these six?
I know some people may be ask-
ing themselves wnsre would we put
places like sav Chick-Ftl-A, Taco Bell,
Lil' Dino's or Subway. Well, if for
some reason we cannot put these
places on campus for student conve-
nience, then maybe consider the idea
of allowing us to use our cards where
these places already exist even if it
means going off campus to do it.
There are places right next to cam-
pus such as McDonald's Wendy's
Subway, Miami Subs and more. Wriy
not, if the idea of a small food court
consisting of franchises of these
national chains on campus does not
work then consider extending our
meal plan privileges right next to
1 for one would love the idea of a
Chick-Fil-A right on campus for say
lunch or dinner. Other campuses
such as North Carolina State
University have these restaurants as
part of their dining experience.
I think it is time for ECU's dining
services to catch up with other uni-
versities and consider the idea of an
on campus food court or the idea of
having the privilege of using our meal
cards at places right next to campus.
It may even get more students to sign
up for on campus dining.
Drivers can't see around dirt mounds
To the Editor,
For those of you who haven't seen
the dirt monuments along 10th Street,
let me bring you up to date. A few-
weeks ago, dirt mounds were erected
on the bottom of the hill along 10th
Street, across the street from
Christenbury. This spelb curtains for
all those jaywalkers out there.
Jaywalkers are a problem for drivers
along 10th Street which made this
"sandbox project" seemingly a good
idea. However, what was missing in this
haste to build the mounds were the
student drivers. Everyday hundreds of
cars make their wav up and down the
Try going down the hill tonight

to see if it's clear to turn, unless you
have X-ray vision all you can see is dirt.
The dirt mounds are causing a bigger
problem for drivers than just jaywalk-

5SISTNT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
"Rr as long as I can remember, I
wanted to dance recalls ECU stu-
dent Jennifer Haynes, "and finally
although proceeded by operations
and hospital stays, I was able to
achieve my goal. The therapeutic
effect of dancing was not only physi-
cal, but also emotional. The five years
1 have spent dancing represent some
of the happiet moments of my life
Jennifer, who is a special education
major, cherishes the ability to dance
more than the average person. Rr her,
dancing is not a thing to be taken for
granted, for her, it is a miraculous gift.
And she is not the only ECU student
who has these feelings.
Jennifer, like several students on
campus, is disabled. She was born
with cerebral palsy, which has con-
fined her movements for her entire
life. But Jennifer has not let her con-
dition stop her from being physically
active, and thanks to an ECU inte-
grated dance troupe, she has now dis-
' covered the joy of dance.
This dance group is integrated in
the sense that it includes both people
with disabilities and people without
disabilities. With the support of
ECU'S ARISE program in 1995,
Jennifer's idea of founding a dance
program including people with dis-
abilities was bom. Jennifer chose the
name Whcelfower for the group.
Wheelftjwer currently includes
ten members. Six of the dancers have
a wide range of disabilities (physical,
visual and auditory) and four dancers
, are able-bodied. The troupe contains
dancers that attend ECU and dancers
from local communities. Three of the
dance members are from New Bern;
one is a public school teacher and the
other two are public school students.
The New Bern dancers joined the
troupe in the fall of" to perform
with WheelRjwer at a regional confer-
ence in Greensboro.
The faculty advisor and director of
the troupe, Boni Boswell, Ph.D is an
Associate Professor in the
Department of Exercise and Sport
Recently, Boswell choreographed
Awakening for the entire troupe.
Jennifer choreographed a solo, Reach,
Mike Hamer, an ECU English
Department lecturer, has composed a
musical score especially for Awakening,
and will be "jumping in to fill in for
one of the dancers from New Bern
who will not be at the performance
"I take my hat off to Dr. Boswell
and the disabled dancers she has
worked with Hamer said. "They
have been working on this every
Sunday since late October of last year.
Through contributions from the
ECU School of Health and Human
Performance and the College of Arts
& Sciences, Awakening was recorded at
Blue House Studios in Greenville.
ECU faculty members from the
School of Music, including Barbara
Memory, Paul Tardif and Darren
Holbrook, as well as independent
artist John Sutton, generously con-
tributed their talents to the record-

Indie rock can get really really boring
and really really pretentious.
Sometimes you just get tired of hear-
ing postmodern deconstructionist
noise filtered through old broken
amps. Sometimes you just want to
hear somebody who can sing in tune.
Sometimes you want something cre-
ative but not hard on the ears.
Sometimes you want to have a little
fun, the way you did when you were a
kid iistening to the radio.
Even though they're big in the
indie-rock scene, even though they're
young, even though they're from
North Carolina, even though there's
only three of them, Ben Folds Five are
such a relief from the worn noisepop
scene that sometimes seems to be the
only "alternative" to alternative
music. Ben Folds Five are a trio of nice
young men performing a nice blend of
soul and '70s rock with just a dash of
that early '80s flair that makes their
songs so darn catchy. The group is
centered around the piano and vocal
skills of Ben Folds, who also happens
to be the group's songwriter. (That's
probably why they named the band
Whatever andEver Amen is the trio's
second album. Jaunty and loud, this
album is a blend of the humorous and
the deadly serious (usually in the
same song.) The songs are danceable
peppy numbers spiced with flashy
piano solos and the solid grooves of
Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee on
drums and bass. Ben Folds has better
keyboard skills than Elton John or
Jerry Lee Lewis, but without John's
Vegas-like self-importance or Lewis'
attraction for close family members.
The album opens up with "One
Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces
a rollicking ditty about judging people
by appearances, inner human torment
and sweet, sweet revenge. "Fair"
works from the old "all's fair in love"
saying, blending it into a hook-filled
piano jam. "Brick" is a lament about
the loneliness of being in love with
someone who is dying: "Now that I've
found someone, I'm feeling more
alone than I have before. She's a brick
and I'm drowning slowly
"Song For The Dumped" is a God-
sent rant to all those girls who've left
us poor nice guys in the dust. The
chorus is wonderfully poetic: "Give
me my money back, give me my
money back, bitch. And don't forget
my black t-shirt
"Selfless, Cold and Composed" is a
lovely ballad featuring a gorgeous
string arrangement by John Mark
Painter. "Kate" is one of the cleverest
love songs I've heard in a while: "She
plays wipeout on the drums, the
squirrels and birds come gather
around to sing the guitar
"Smoke" is a ballad lamenting the
mortal nature of man. "Steve's Last
Night in town" is a jazzy song featur-
ing a New Orleans trumpet about an
annoying but nice guy: "I think
Steven was mad. Maybe he wasn't
mad. but we felt strange for a moment
then the moment was gone and for-
"Battle of Who Could Care Less"
is a complaint about those people who
make mountains out of molehills. The

The East Carolinian
One of my favorite lines from the
ECU Playhouse version of
Aristophanes' classic play Lysistrata
belonged to the Commissioner. He
remarked after a party celebrating a
treaty with the Spartans, "Get drunk,
and nobody gives a damn
Maybe if I had been drunk, watch-
ing this play would not have been so
I've been reviewing the ECU
Playhouse since my freshman year
and have never, in all that time, seen
such a poor production. Before I start
in on what I didn't like, I would like
to point out that this can in no way be
blamed on the cast. They did an
excellent job with what they were
given. Unfortunately, that wasn't
I'd like to start off with the cos-
tumes. The characters were basically
dressed in long underwear draped in a
satin-type curtain. The color scheme
was really quite clever though - pink
for women, blue for men. However
did they come up with that?
Another big problem I had with
the costumes were the phalluses. Not
a single one stood up by itself. The
poor actors had to run around stage
holding them up, and heaven help
them if they needed both hands for a
gesture. They wilted so fast it made
my head spin.
As for the Spartan Herald - well,
while I must say I'm impressed with
those boys they grow in Sparta, I was
very amused to notice the snaps on
his phallus that held it draped over
his shoulder. You'd think something
as obvious as these snaps could have �
been hidden a little more gracefully. I
have to ask - did they run out of
money? If not, there really isn't any
excuse for the poor quality of these
costumes. I know Costume Designer
Kathleen Gossman can do better. Her
designs for the earlier production of
IB. were nothing short of spectacular.
Another big problem with this
production was the music. Perhaps it
would have been better if they had
just left the music out. The first big
conflict was the fact that the music
just didn't fit the play. Sure, they
were singing about what was going
on, but the songs sounded like they
were written for the modern world
and totally didn't fit with the ancient
Crock costumes and set.
Furthering the problem was the fact that the dia-
logue within the play was in an entirely different
style than the words of the songs. And what were
those dances? I could have sworn I saw the same
thing on an episode of Family Matters - a little dance
called the Urkel? By the time the male chorus sang
to Zeus to save them from the womn, I was singing
a prayer of my own - save me from this play!
I want to personally apologize to Amanda
Whitford and Michael Scialabba for what I'm about
to say. I can not bring myself to blame this on the two
of you. I'm certain that it wasn't your idea, but the
country hick accents for the Spartans just don't work.
Talk about a cheap gag. These accents just came out
of nowhere and really made my stomach turn. My
overall impression is just that this play does not rep-
resent the quality theatre I'm used to seeing at the
ECU Playhouse. I was reminded of a middle school
production, and I must in all honesty say that I was
ashamed that people actually paid money to see this.
There were a few bright spots in this otherwise
extremely poor production. The set and lighting
were extremely well designed. At first f had been
bothered by the loud colors, but as the show went
on, in comparison they really became like works of
genius. Set designer Robert C. Alpers and lighting
designer Ken White are to be commended.
As I mentioned before, the cast did an excellent
job with what they were given, and a few individuals
stood out by overcoming great obstacles and giving
good performances. Jamie Bullock was an absolutely
delightful slut, although some of her actions in the
beginning brought to mind of Jamie Lane's character
in Suburbia (especially rubbing herself along the
I was also extremely impressed with Leane Jones,
who played the leader of the women's chorus. I can't

more and more groups forsaking the
traditions of the past and instead
focusing on those small fast-and-fad-
ing fads that can make them the most
money. Luckily for me, Iake Trout
has decided to return to the roots of
what makes music soulful.
The band itself is from Baltimore,
where they have become well-known
for their infectious and entertaining
live shows. Made up of five members
including Woody Ranere (lead vocals,
guitar), Ed Harris (guitar, vocals),
James Griffith (bass, vocals), Matt
Pierce (saxophone, flute, percussion,
vocals) and Mike Lowry (drums),
Lake Trout has made a name for
themselves based on their varied
"We listen to hip-hop, jazz, rock
and soul Harris said. "It all figures
into our music
Their sound is a complex mish-
mash of late '60s Blue Note jazz and
early-to-mid '70s James Brown com-
bined with a spice of Marvin Gave and
a smidgen of Django Reinhardt. As
diverse as the elements may sound,
Lake Trout manages to combine them
into a seamless whole, even jjoing so
far as to include some hip-hop ele-
"We're inspired by hip-hop in that
the beats and rhythms are often incor-
porated into our songs; we listen to
bands like Digable Planets, A Tribe
Calied Quest and The Roots Pierce
However, their sound is very retro
with none of the over-produced, sam-
ple-laden stuff that ruins many of
today's rhythm & blues acts. As warm
and relaxing as it is grooving and shak-
ing, Lake Trout's sound has a timeless
quality, yet never seems to be stuck in
"We all like really raw, organic
sounds Ranere said. "We don't want
a lot of extra effects and guitar pedals.
It's gotta have an edge to it
Well, this album certainly does
have an edge to it. From the laid-back
instrumentation and smoky lyrics of
"Stuck in My World" and "What to
Do to the jump-kick sounds of
"Polis" and "Nuetro Ivenus Lake
Trout have crafted a fine piece of work
for their self-titled debut. I expect to
hear more from them in the future.
They certainly deserve a big label
But until that happens, I'll be glad
to have this album in my player. Right
now, I'm going to kick back to the
beat of "On My Way to Work a tune

Here Folds shows a more emotional,

for a moment.
The band is tight throughout the
whole album. The arrangements are
fun and clever, and the choruses are
littered with "doo-wops" and
"ahhhs" that send you back to the
70s. The roadhouse piano licks and
foot-stomping grooves are just darn
tasty. Despite the fact that entire
thing was recorded in Ben Folds'
house, the recording and mixing arc
just this side of heavenly.
This is a perfect album for long

lot of fun to watch.
Alayna Hamilton was an impres-
sive Lysistrata, and her superior
singing voic is probably what
stopped me from walking out in the
middle of the how. Ever since hear-
ing her in Durk of the Moon, I'll grab
any excuse to listen to her sing.
I can honestly say the iw bright
spots in this production were not
enough for me to recommend that
anyone else waste their time seeing
it. In fact, the only recommendation
I can give out is for the cast.
As much as I love you guys, I'd
leave this one off my resume.

New short track ace Gordon wins again
MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Jeff Gordon says short tracks were the one area
where he was truly short of answers when he arrived as a regular in NASCAR's
Winston Cup series in 1993.
Hit overpowering victory in the Goody's Headache Powder 500 on Sunday
at Martinsville Speedway - his second straight win and fourth in eight starts
this season - was simply the latest example that the precocious 25-year-old
teams his lessons fast and well.
"It means a lot to me and to Ray (crew chief Ray Evcmham) to win on the
short tracks because this has been the toughest thing for me to adapt to, par-
ticularly at a place like Martinsville Gordon said.
"A couple of years ago, we came here and tested and I ran lap after lap after
jp. Then I went home and watched hours of tanc on guys who ran well here.
1 learned a lot from that, and days tike this are the payoff
A week earlier, Gordon had to bump his way past Rusty Wallace on the last
turn of the lust lap to win. This time, he led a race-record 432 of 500 laps on
the .526-mile oval, IrWwot even being spun out in an incident with Jimmy
Spencer could slow his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrotet for more than a few

Burns only ECU selection in draft
This past weekend's NFL Draft saw
only one selection from ECU �
offensive guard Lamont Bums.
Bums was selected first in the fifth
round by the New York Jets. He was
the 131st pick overall. He is the first
ECU offensive lineman to be selected
in the draft since 1993 when Tom
Scott was chosen by the Cincinnati
Bengals in the sixth round.
Burns was a two year starter at
offensive guard despite coming to
ECU in '92 as a defensive lineman.
He played defensive end in '93 and
moved to tight end during the 94
During the '94 season he was
switched to offensive guard and saw-
action against Cincinnati, Auburn,
Memphis and Illinois. It was at this
position he finished out his playing
career at ECU. In 95 he was named
the most improved offensive player
for the season and started all 12
Bums was a bit surprised when the
Jets selected him because, according
to Bums, the Cincinnati Bengals were
looking to draft him in the third round
but ended up selecting Rod Payne, a
center from Michigan.
When asked about what his biggest
adjustment will be going to the NFL,
Burns laughingly said it had nothing to
do with football, but with New York
"My main concern isn't the foot-
ball aspect Bums said. "Coach (Jeff)
Connors has prepared me for the
physical part of the game and Coach
(Steve) Logan has prepared for the
mental part. I'm more worried about
heading to New York City
When Head Coach Bill Parcells
traded away his first selection in the
first round to the St. Louis Rams,
many people criticized his move. But
Parcells' strategy was to gain as many
picks possible to help the ailing Jets
who went 1-15 last year. Bums agreed
with the move.
"Parcells has been
known to come in and
make things better
Burns said. "You can't
build a team off one or
two people. You need
the 11 guys to con-
tribute. If the odds are
11-2, I'll take the 11
Bums feels he can
contribute a positive
attitude to his new
"ECU athletes in the pros have been
known to be hard workers
From the way Bums played his
career at ECU, he will carry on the tra-
dition of hard workers in the pros.
Since Bums was the only player
selected in the draft, he was a bit sur-
prised that more of his teammates
"I was surprised. Our class was one
of the most talented
However, some of Burns team-
mates are in the process of signing
free agent deals with various teams.
Bums heads to New York on Friday
for three days then will return to ECU

Golfers finish season third in CM tournament
ECU's golf team brought in a third
place finish in the CAA
Championship Sundsrv at the Lane
Tree Golf Club. The finish was the
best the Pirates have seen at the con-
ference tournament since 1995-
Richie Creech, a senior from
Wilson, led ECU throughout the
tournament to become the first
Pirate since 1994 to win first place
individual honors. Creech finished
with a total tournament score of 212,
and was followed by Reg Millage of
Virginia Commonwealth. Millage fin-
ished just one stroke behind Creech,
with a total score of 213.
ECU Head Coach Kevin Williams
is extremely pleased with the perfor-
mance of the team at the champi-
onship. After finishing seventh at last
year's tournament, the first year
coach has obviously done a tremen-
dous job with the team.
"We headed into the tournament
ready for a battle among the rop four
teams Williams said. "The guys
really battled it out and gave it their
Williams said Creech's victory will
turn a lot of eyes to Pirate rerritory,
and will give the program the credit
and recognition it deserves.
"It was so exciting to see Richie
pull it all together and play so well to
end his career Williams said. "His
win was a very emotional victory
because he deserved it so much
once again to
post the best
team score of
ment, with a
Richie Creech total of 871.
U N C -
came in second at 886, just five
strokes ahead of the Pirates.
"I would have liked to have seen
us play with a little more consistency,
but regardless of whether we finished
first or dead last, the effort would
have been the same Williams said.
"I can't ask for any more than 100 per-
cent, and that's what I saw out
Coming in 17th place with a total
tournament score of 226 was ECU's
Stephen Satterly, while Kevin Millet,
the recipient ECU's 1997
Outstanding Male Athlete Award,
finished tied for 19th with 227. Marc
Miller and Robbie Perry finished
closely behind in 22nd and 28th place
For next season, Williams is confi-
dent the players will be able to use
their experience from this year to
help them improve.
"I can foresee us being very suc-
cessful next year after ending this
season on such a high note Williams
said. "We have already grown so
much, but we still striving to be even
Track team runs well at championship meet

standings, scoring 80.5 points.
It was a fantastic weekend for
ECU's Lady Pirates, who concluded
the CAA Championships with second-
place honors. To get things started,
the Lady Pirates racked up 26 points
to give them an early lead over the
competition and a six point advantage
over George Mason.

record. Her previous distance was 176'
2 set last weekend at the Duke

On Saturday both ECU squads set
out to dominate the field and that's
exactly what they did. ECU's women
led Saturday off with a first place fin-
ish in the 4x100 meter relay This
team composed of Kai Eason, Amanda
Johnson, Nikki Goins and Rasheca
Barrow, finished in a time of 45.42, a
new school record. The four sprinters

the top-four spots in the women's 100
In other running events. Barrow

Rugby season concludes with another winning season
The ECU rugby team concluded their spring season two weekends ago at
Radford University on a good note by winning the tournament. The win is noth-
ing new for the Pirates, considering this semester is their 20th winning season
in a row, finishing with a 14-5 overall record. Fbr the last decaoc the ECU rugby
team has ended the season with more wins than losses.
The last tournament was at Radford University, in Blacksburg, Va. on April
12-13. Including ECU, there were four teams who participated in the round-
robin tournament. ECU first played North Carolina State, shutting them out
19-0. They then defeated the host, Radford 15-7. The Iirarcs lost their last
game to Wake Forest 14-7, but still won the overall tournament because they
scored the most points.
The Pirates' only other tournament of the spring was in Savannah, Ga. at a
St. Patrick's tournament. There they finished fourth out of 12 teams, losing to
the number two, nationally ranked, Penn State Nittany Lions.
The Pirates also competed in the state playoffs on Feb. 22 to qualify for
Nationals. The Pirates lost this time to NCSU, who later lost to the Tar Heels
of Chapel Hill. Since the Tar Heels beat State, and State beat ECU, they went
on to the Nationals.
The Pirates are hoping to do even better next season, since they're only los-
ing three of their 30 players to graduation. Matt Oathout. a grad student and the
club's president, is one of the three departing. Eric Kunkell, the current team
captain, will be returning and is optimistic about the coming season.
"Teams in the past have had more experience, but we're learning quick
Kunkell said. "We'll be better next year than this one because we'll have so many
returnees. We lost a couple of guys before this season, but we still finished with
a winning record, so hopefully we'll be even better next season
Anyone who is interested in playing rugby; is a full-time student and meets
the academic requirements, is encouraged to come out. Eeryone makes the
team and participates in every game since it's a club sport, whether it's on the
A team or the B team. .Also, rugby is played over the summer, as well as in both
the fall and spring.
The team would also like to extend their gratitude to Gray Hodges, the
director of club sports. Thanks to Hodges the Pirates had money, transportation
to the tournaments and places to stay for every tournament.
"He's Hodgesl super to work with and he's part of the reason we're so suc-
cessful Oathout said. "Every collegian rugby team is a club sport, and out of all
the schools we play, in terms of school support, we're spoiled. So we appreciate
everything Gray has done
If interested, call the Recreation Services desk and leave your name and
number, Oathout will be in contact with you with more details.

Alomar faces off with ump � again
BALTIMORE (AP) - Roberto
Alomar and umpire John Hirschbeck
have no intention of sharing any-
thing more than the same field
Tuesday night at Camden Yards.
The game between the
Baltimore Orioles and Chicago
White Sox will put Alomar and
Hirschbeck on the same baseball
field for the first time since the sec-
ond baseman spit at the umpire
Sept. 27 at Toronto.
Alomar repeatedly has apologized
and expressed his desire to put the
incident behind him. Hirschbeck,
similarly, said he wants to do his job
with as few distractions as possible.
Both have rejected the idea of
meeting before the game to bring
further closure to the incident.
"I'm just going to play baseball
Alomar said this weekend in Boston.
Hirschbeck refused to talk
Sunday in Cleveland about the
upcoming Orioles game. Crew chief
Jim McKean cut off an approaching
reporter outside the umpire's room
and said, "We as a crew will have no
comment on the situation. We are
not talking about it
Hirschbeck said Saturday, "It was
over for me a long time ago. I have a
lot more things in my life. I try to
get every pitch right; I try to get
every play right. That's hr,v I'll
approach going into Baltimore
As far as Alomar is concerned,
enough has been said on the subject.
He has been hounded by reporters
this spring, even though he issued a
written apology last October and
said he would donate $50,000
toward research on the disease that
killed Hirschbeck's son.
Alomar also served a five-game
paid suspension at the beginnii. of
this season, and revealed over the
weekend that the money he earned
during that span - his pay over that
seven-day span was S232.0OO - will
be given to charity.
The seven-time All-Star is still
booed when the Orioles are on the
road. He signed autographs before
Baltimore's game at Kansas City two
weeks ago, then was jeered every
time he walked to the plate.
The fans are entitled to their
opinion let's leave it at that he
said. Believe me, I would take it
back if I could. What happened was
totally out of character for me
After being ejected from the
game and then spitting at
Hirschbeck, Alomar compounded
his troubles by suggesting that the
umpire was still "bitter" over the
tragic death of his 8-year-old son.
Days later, the Orioles released
an apology in Alomar's name. But AL
president Gene Budig's decision to
suspend Alomar for only five games -
after the postseason - caused
umpires from both leagues to
attempt a strike. They were stopped
only by a federal court order.
Hirschbeck accepted the apology
and asked the issue be put to rest.
"Maybe, that's the way it ought
to be, with everything back to nor-
mal Orioles owner Fteter Angelos
said. "I think both men will do what
is required and sooner or later, peo-
ple will recognize Roberto Alomar
solely for what he is - a great baseball
Kosar says goodbye to football
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Quarterback
Bernie Kosar said yesterday that he
has decided to retire so he can focus
on business interests. Which might
soon include part ownership of the
expansion Cleveland Browns.
Kosar, who played in Cleveland
for 8 12 seasons, leads an invest-

"I'm definitely interested in pur-
suing that. I have people up there in

Kosar, 33, announced his decision
today after meeting with Miami
Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson over
the weekend. There was little emo-
tion as Kosar said he was quitting
football with his wife. Babette, and
two daughters in the audience.
'The day comes for evcrylxxly
Johnson said. "He had a great, great
career, both in professional football
and in college
Kosar played in the NFL for 12
years, spending his final three sea-
sons with the Dolphins as a backup.
For a quarterback whose losses were
as memorable as his victories, Kosar
said winning a Super Bowl with
Dallas and his last pass as a Brown
were his most memorable moments.
"It's a tough decision to make
Kosar said. "I still have that compe-
tition inside of me, I still feel I can
play football. It just would be
increasingly difficult to give my full
attention to football
Kosar had been expected to re-
sign with the Dolphins this year as
their third-string quarterback
behind Dan Marino and Craig
Erickson. Last season, he came off
the bench in three games and threw
for one touchdown.
He said he had been looking for-
ward to playing the coming season,
but once he took a good look at his
business commitments he knew it
would be half-hearted.
Besides trying to bring back the
Browns, Kosar is executive director
of a telemarketing business and
owns a new line of greeting cards
and a chain of fast-food restaurants.
The telemarketing business,
Precision Response Corp went
public last fall with a stock offering
of S14.50 per share. It reached a 52-
week high of $46.
In addition, Kosar and Babette
are expecting their third child this

Hurricanes, Dallas Cowboys and
