Players Club builds defense against allegations
Former employee makes
claims of discrimination
JACQUELINE D. KELU'M

A former employee of Players Club
Apartments recently brought a suit against the
This suit alleged that Players Club had fol-
lowed discriminatory procedures in leasing
The plaintiff, Joni Wynne, was employed as
a property manager at Players Club, located at
1500 South Charles Boulevard, from June
1995 to January 1996. In a lawsuit filed with
the U.S. District Court on May 2, 1997,
Wynne alleges that soon after assuming her
duties at Players Club, she was instructed by
the owner, John Barrett, not to rent to black
applicants. Other defendants named in the
suit include Jeannie Northcutt, who super-
vised Players Club Apartments, and the com-

that she could not rent to black applicants
unless they met a different criteria than white
applicants. The reason stated by Barrett for

When graduation approaches, students start
scrambling around trying to dress up their
resumes. However, the single most important
resume decoration is something they should
have thought of a long time before graduation-
The easiest way to gain work experience in
your major is to do an internship. Career
Services and the Office of Cooperative
Education and help place students in intern-
ships in their chosen field.
Dr. Mary M. Cauley, director of the Office
of Cooperative Education, said. "If you have
500 applicants with the same degree, how is
any one of them going to stand out? Work
experience. An internship will give them that
edge over the others
Besides providing work experience, Cauley
points out that internships also help build your
resume, create personal marketability, pay for
school, create references and create a strong
network of professional contacts.
"Internships give students a distinct advan-
tage because they gain an understanding of the
day-to-day work environment. They also learn
about the appropriate dress, behavior, and they
learn about the office dynamics that are pre-
sent in today's workplace said James
Westmoreland, director of Career Services.
Both Career Services and Co-op help place
students in internships, not only in Creenville,
but in all 50 states and many countries around
Cauley said that practically every major has
some kind of an internship available and that
most internships are paid. She also noted that
many internships can also count as academic
credit, which is a big help to students.
"Even if they don't pay or count as class
credit, the work experience you gain by doing
an internship is worth the time Cauley said.
Internships also give students time to test
out the skills and knowledge they have learned
while in school. They also provide the student
with a chance to try out a career and see if that
is really what the want to do for the rest of
their life. That way, if the job is not what the
student thought it would be, they can change
their major before they spend four years on a
degree they will never use.

this disparity in treatment was that he did not
want any "black traffic' in his apartment com-
plex the suit alleged.
Barrett said in a written statement, "nei-

have ever given any instruction to treat black
applicants in a discriminatory, or otherwise
unlawful, fashion. Indeed, we have a number
of black residents at the Greenville Players

counterclaim against Wynne, along with a
motion to dismiss.

stress caused by Defendants Barrett and

Since the suit was filed, another former
employee, Kristin Voytek, has sworn an affi-
davit which states that her employment at
Players Club was difficult because of the
allegedly discriminatory practices.
Plaintiff Wynne's suit against Players Club
is asking for approximately $2 million in com-
pensatory and punitive damages, and accord-

ECU is one of five state supported universi-
ties that could be receiving additional fund-
ing this year as a result of the new state bud-
get passed by the North Carolina Senate.
The new budget, which is still awaiting
approval bv the House of Representatives,
would give ECU S3.1 million in additional
funds this year. This money would be used
by the university to complete construction
on the expansion of Dowdy-Ficklin
Stadium, as well as hiring more librarians for
the newly expanded Joyner Library and
additional technicians for the computer
"It has been determined that five univer-
sities, one of which was ECU, have not been
receiving the appropriate amount of funding
over the last several years. These new provi-
sions in the budget are the result of a his-
torical funding error, and as a result ECU
will have a $3.1 million increase in its bud-
get said Richard Eakin, chancellor of ECU.
"Also in the new budget is a provision
that reduces the 2 percent reversion rate
down to 1 percent, which will save the uni-
versity approximately SI.4 million as well
said Eakin. The reversion rate refers to the
percentage of the school's budget that must
be given back to the state at the end of each
Unfortunately, however, Parking Services
will not be affected by this increase.
"The state of North Carolina does not
provide funding for parking. The amount of
fines and fees are what goes into that bud-
get, so it is really the people who use the
parking who help determine what the park-
ing budget is Eakin said.
The budget is also calling for a 3 percent
increase in pay for employees of ECU, as
well as a provision that states that faculty
members will be eligible for a "teaching
excellence" bonus that rewards teaching
excellence in the classroom. However, this
part of the budget has run into problems in
the State House of Representatives and may
not be included in the budget.
The Leroy T Walker International
Human Performance Center, which will be
located at ECU, also received funding in the
new budget. Al Delia, associate vice-chan-
cellor of regional development, said that the
original request was for $600,000, but
received only $350,000.
"My department will actually be seeing
zero of the money that has been set aside for
the new center. The funding is going from
the legislature to the State Department of
Commerce, and then directly to the Walker
Center. This is a separate, non-profit organi-
zation of the university Delia said.
Delia also commented that he hoped the
remaining $250,000 would be raised through
fund-raisers and donations.
"We have enough to start the program up
this summer, and we will have athletes from
all over the world here for testing and eval-
uation. It will also be used to educate peo-
ple on proper training techniques and nutri-
tion said Delia.
The purpose of the Walker Center is to
help the elite athletes of the world perform
at higher levels. While this program is going
to be located in the Ward Sports Medicine
Building, Delia said he hopes that eventual-

Welcome to another edition of summer school. We hope you enjoy your stay as you continue
your journey through college.
Doia't you wish it could be that pleasant sounding?
What it really boils down to is longer classes everyday. But this is the summer time and we
know students don't load themselves down with too much in the summer so they can enjoy the
other luxuries summer offers.
Now that the rec center is open, sun buffs can take advantage of the outdoor pool with plen-
ty of seating in case you don't want to get too close to the splashing of the water. Summer school
can be viewed as a positive outing because you get the classes you need, for the most part, for
a cheaper price. If you choose to take 12 or more hours for the duration of summer school, that
is a lot cheaper than during the regular semester.
Summer school is a time for people to get that extra class or two they need to stay on sched-
ule to graduate, or like some of us, we can use it to get out a semester early. Either way, if we
didn't want to be here, we wouldn't be.
Summer also means that downtown is a little less crowded, so when you are trying to show
off your dance moves, this time you actually have room to move.
Around ECU, summer is a much more relaxed time. The day lasts longer and people don't
seem to be as stressed as the usual semesters. Often in the dusk you see bike riders or roller
bladers around campus. Ah summer, you've got to love it.
Being at ECU for the summer also means that you are only a short drive away from the beach.
Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach are not but about an hour and a half, so when the weekend
comes, it's time to pack up the car and the friends and hit the sand and water.
I So as you can see, summer school isn't that bad, and, in fact, it can be fun. The rec center is
ptill open for the students enjoyment and since classes are over in about five weeks, you don't
have too long of a semester ahead of you.
Summer doesn't have to be too bad, even with classes. So have fun and enjoy yourself, but
bon't forget about those occasional tests. (We didn't forget - hope you don't either.)
Eradicating books considered 'garbage' ridiculous
l would like to take this opportunity
to commend The Honorable
Gentleman from Harnett County,
State Representative Don Davis, who
is saving every middle and high school
student from the calamity of expo-
sure to "garbage" as he so eloquently
phrased it in his recent bill that would
restrict any work, be it literature, doc-
umentary, or otherwise, that may
include subject matter of a sexual
nature. His bill goes on to include any
sexual relation between two people,
especially if they happen to be unmar-
ried or of the same sex. These would
be restricted to all people under the
age of 18 (after which they may then
freely choose to pollute their innocent
and uncorrupted mind) or if they have
their parents' express written permis-
sion to have his or her mind tainted
with this kind of "trash
Thank God for Him! Now every
child that goes through grades 5-8 will
no longer be subject to such atrocities
as Hello God. It's Me, Margaret, Space
Station Seventh Grade, and the most
heinous works of all, those written by
Judy Blume! And for the high-school
students: no more Ethan Frame,
Madame Bovary , The Founiainhrad, and
that book that every student in North
ASnerica loathes: The Catcher In The
! IWhat is even more astounding is
the penalty that would be levied on
any librarian, teacher, or other bastion
of moral demise that provides these
uncorrupted children with such
immoral pollution. Under this bill, if
made into law, it would be considered
a felony to allow someone under the
age of i 8 to check out any one of the
books deemed inappropriate by some
board, surety to be appointed by the
least morally corrupt of all organiza-
tions; the General Assembly. I can see
it now! Little old Ms. Smith from the
school library (the one who had the
socks that never matched) being cart-
ed away, blue hair and all by the SBI
for contributing to the delinquency of
Who are these people? The law-
makers who continually strive to shun
the things that they do not approve of
(or at least the things some interest
group that supports him or her does
not approve of) with the hopes of
changing the world through seclu-
sion? Who are these people who can-
not see that it really does not matter
whether someone reads about pre-
marital sex and homosexuality or not,
that these things exist in the world we
live in. How many teens have read a
book where there is any kind of sexu-
al innuendo and decided to go have
sex or to get pregnant?
How many young men or women
have read a book where any one char-
acter is gay and decided to convert? It
is this kind of bill that would restrict
young people from getting the infor-
mation they need in order to prevent
pregnancy and sexually transmitted
diseases; a bill that would prevent a
teen, burdened by the stress from
growing up gay, to get help in coping
with his or her sexuality.
When will they learn that the great
values they seek arc not taught by
hiding from the world and that nei-
ther values nor morals can be
destroyed by some book if they are
not taught to children and adoles-
cents in the first place. Taught by
people whom they respect. How can
young people be expected to respect
their teachers and even themselves
when people like Rep. Don Davis and
his cohorts constantly insult them
and their intelligence.
Grab your protesting materials or
sit idly by. But do not doubt, The
Hon. Don Davis will not be the last
person to try to censor people's
thoughts, just as he is not the first. So
while you sit and wait for the summer
to pass you by, while you wait to
return to school and the books, think
hard. Just don't be surprised when you
get back to the library in the fall and
are asked for photo ID and your
parental permission slip.

Or, how about a pool to cool things off.

Summer students can't escape bullies
Summer school. You cither love it
or hate it. Yes, it's that time of the
year again when students drag them-
selves out of bed at the ungodly hour
of 7 a.m just to catch an early class.
Yawning, eyes semi-glazed over, we sit
in class desperately trying to appear
interested in what the instructor is
saying. Many of us are probably think-
ing of our luckier classmates and
friends who were smart enough to take
the summer sessions off. I can almost
imagine thcmrunning in slow motion
on golden beaches, sun bathing on
fancy lounges and sipping exotic look-
ing cocktails. Just like in a B-grade
movie! Oh, well.
I think I can survive summer school
as long as I don't have to deal with a
school bully. That's right � a school
bully. He or she may not be the little
terror you remember from kinder-
garten but, believe me, an adult bully
is just as bad if not worse. I should
Last semester I had the misfortune
of sitting behind one in class.
This person would routinely come
to class twenty minutes late, shoving
the door open with a loud crash before
swaggering over to his seat and laying
out his entire meal on the desk. Rom
where I sat it looked like a seven
course dinner. He would then proceed
to chew and gulp with much relish and
noise, stopping several times to crunch
ice from his gigantic soda cup. lb end
his meal with a flourish, he would then
stretch his arms and legs out to the
maximum and wave them about in a
crazy pinwheel fashion. And this was
just the beginning.
My class bully constanly interrupt-
ed the professor with his viewpoints
and thoroughly shouted down any
other student who had the 'aduacity'
to speak up as well. He knew every-
thing about anything. In fact, he
reminded me of the Mountain Dew
advertisement�been there, done that
etc. Other annoying habits included
jogging the instructor's memory when
he forgot to collect homework or give a
quiz. If all of this was not enough, Mr.
Bully invariably had a question to ask
half a minute before class ended. Of
course, we were forced to stay behind
Anyway, that was then and this is
now. So, here I am again at summer

anyone. Including bullies.

First, if you qualify, the Mont-

up to $7,124 for current college ex-

Second, if you have�or obtain�a

you may get it paid off at the rate of

greater, up to a maximum of $10,000.

Third, you can earn part-time
money in college, and here's how it
works: One summer you take Basic
Training, and the next summer you
receive skill training at an Army
school. You'll earn over $1,500 for
Basic and even more for skill training.
Then you'll attend monthly meetings
at an Army Reserve unit near your

over $107 a weekend to start. It's

some grandstanding and a lot of
political doublespeak. Needless to

hair in a wave and looked to be about
70 years old. My friend looked over
at me in astonishment because he
thought this was James Brown. I said
it wasn't him and waited for that
deep, rich voice to boom out of the
mike. I wasn't disappointed.
"Ladies and gentlemen, there

In a flurry of motion, the

James did everything you would

on and on. He slowed down the

over while the crowd begged him to

His announcer put a cloak around
Brown's shoulders as the crowd got
louder, and James finally threw it off
and strutted back to the mike. He
was in total control.
The performance lasted until a
quarter 'til three in the morning. At
that point, Aykroyd and Belushi
brought out a cake to celebrate the
Godfather's birthday. Rolanda came
out then, too, and James kept her on

although a bit excessive, is awe-
inspiring and majestically beautiful
as it captures a world in which
dinosaurs live naturally among them-
selves without human interference.
It's possibly the best visual ever cap-
tured in a monster movie.
All my praising does not mean
that The Lost World is without its
faults. Aside from lacking cnaracters
and plot, the overriding theme of
letting nature thrive without human
interference becomes a bit preachy
by the end. Also, some key moments
may have the sense of deja. But all of
this does not lessen the overall
intended impact. This film is Jurassic
Park with several added volts of
After winning his deserved
Oscars for the haunting SchmdUrs
List, Spielberg may seem to be sell-
ing himself short by directing a
sequel to a dinosaur flick.
But this is not Spielberg selling
out. This is Spielberg not forgetting
his roots. He first hit big with Jam,
went on to direct such classics as
Close Encounters of lie Third Kind and
Raiders of the Lost Ark, and solidified
himself as a major American director
with E.T. All of these films have root
in pop corn movies, movies with'lit-
tle intelligence but loads of fun.
While The Lost World is by no means
as absorbing as Jams, it still illus-
trates that Spielberg has not forgot-
ten or forsaken those precious things
that helped shape him into the icon
he is today.

"It's Alright" signals the beginning
of the end for Shaming. More typical
of the standard Indigo Girls sound
than any of the first songs, "It's
Alright" also is a platform for the Girls
to push their ethical and political
causes more. One line of the song
goes, "And it's alright if you hate me
that way, hate me because I'm differ-
ent, hate me because I'm gay. Truth
of the matter come around one day
The last two-thirds of the CD
goes back to the standard set by their
past couple of CD's, as, with the good
songs out of the way, the slower, and
mediocre, side comes out. One new
aspect of their songs that takes hold
is, believe it or not, sexually tinged
lyrics. "Leeds a piano-based song
that seems on the surface to be a
touching ballad, contains the passage,
"I'm sick tonight find the open hole
and press your finger there with all
your might before the last ounce of
my spirit bleeds onto the pristine
sheets of the hotel bed in Leeds You
interpret that any way you choose.
Another problem the Girls have
developed is rhis yearning to perform
prose in their songs. Lines that have
no ftow or rhythm show up their
songs, and end up ruining what could
be an excellent song For example,
"Caramia" contains the lines .you
used to mock me sometimes, I would
cry when I was home later, You hurt
my feelings. . Prose is great for
books or letters, but songs need
rhythm. If done right, lyrics, can seem
almost like another instrument in the
song but the Indigo Girls have lost
sight of this simple principle.
Overall, I was disappointed with
Shaming of the Sun. The Indigo Girls
should be applauded for their experi-
ments in new instruments and
arrangements, but they should be
shamed for some of these lyrics.
Maybe next time they'll finally put all
the pieces together and come out
with a definitive new album, but for
now we're not left with much to hold

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Two races turned out to be double trouble for
Gordon, who finished 40th in the Coca-Cola 600 after a crash Sunday,
lasted just four laps on the restart of the Indianapolis 500 yesterday
before a fuel leak caused a fire in his car, burning his hands and right leg.
Gordon was fourth when the green flag dropped on lap 18 after two
warmup laps under yellow, and he appeared to be moving up when all of
a sudden he drove onto the warmup lane in turn three.
Gordon quickly parked the car, flung his steering wheel out and ran
away while a metrianoi fire burned his right leg and hand. In a few tortu-
ous seconds before a safety worker arrived with a fire extinguisher,
Gordon rolled around in the grass trying to put out the invisible blaze.
Once the fire was out, Gordon ran back to his Aurora G-force and
climbed in, but safety workers told him to get out while the car was
towed back to the pits.

Australian Open in January, her first Grand Slam title.
Hingis raced to a 5-0 lead in 14 minutes, then needed six minutes to

what sport, you may be asking?

1995, but failed to make it back last
The Irates head into the tourna-
ment with a record of 24-4 and are
ranked fifth in the nation and sixth
in the tournament. Of the 143 ulti-

make it into the national tourna-
ment. Two teams are selected from
each region (west, northeast, mid-
atlantic, south and midwest) and
then there are two wild card spots.
The defending champions UC-
Santa Barbara, are seeded second
behind Stanford, who receives the
number one ranking.
Three year player Tim Doran is
glad to get back to the finals and
thinks his team will fare well.
"This is great since we didn't
appear last year and now that we're
back, we definitely want to win the
whole thing again and claim our
title Doran said.
When asked about the strengths
he sees in the team before the big
tournament, Doran says the Irates
have a good core of experienced
players and even the newcomers are
contributing important play.

than an hour to beat Paola Suarez 6-

Fourth-seeded Goran Ivanisevic
became the first major casualty
when he was upset in four sets by
Magnus Gustafsson. The Swede, a
former top 10 player who is now
ranked No. 38 after battling shoul-

Croatian 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 6-3.
Michael Chang, who won the
tournament in 1989, swept past
Rodolphe Gilbert 6-2, 6-3, 6-2.
In a roller-coaster match, two-
time champion Jim Courier fought
back from two sets down but went
out in five sets against Magnus
Larsson, 6-1, 6-2, 4-6, 1-6, 6-4.
A break down and trailing 4-2 in
the third set, Courier won 10 of the

But a break in the third game of the
decisive set put Larsson ahead for
"I was surprised how pathetic I
was out there. I felt like an alien out
there. I felt like I was out of my skin.
There is no logical explanation for
me to play that pathetically

matches before, but this was as
weird as they come said Courier,
the 1991 and 1992 champion and a
former No. 1 who has dropped to
No. 22 and who was unseeded.
"He gave me an easy break at the
beginning of the fifth set and that
was the difference said Larsson, a
semifinalist in 1994 who is now
ranked No. 39. said.
Courier said he was now going
home to prepare for the grass-court
season and Wimbledon.
Mark Philippoussis, the most
powerful server in the game, hit 29
aces in ousting Nicklas Kulti 6-2, 4-
