Several residents deny
knowledge of discrimination
Jacqueline d. Kellum
Editor's Note: This is part two of an ongoing series on
the suit brought against Player's Club.
In contradiction to the recent suit brought
against Players Club, alleging that the apart-
ment complex had followed discriminatory
practices in leasing their apartments, several
residents at the complex say they have no
knowledge of such practices.
Emily Kiper has lived at the complex since
last August and says that she has no proof of
"I've never heard anything or seen any-
thing Kiper said.
Her roommates agreed with her assess-
ment of the situation, adding that Players
Club obviously does rent to black applicants.
"There are quite a few black people that
live here Kiper said.
Derrick Mangum, a black resident of the
complex, said that the only examples of racial
prejudice he knew of were committed by
othet residents.
"I haven't seen any myself, but I know of
tenants that have committed racial slurs
against other
tenants. As far
as the man-
agement goes,
though, I
don't know of
any prob-

and member of the office staff.

Though a former employee of the apartment complex, located on Charles Blvd says
the management discriminated in their leasing practices, residents say that is not the
case. The only discrimination seems to come from other residents, tenants say.
Wynne and names John Barrett and Jeannie
Northcutt, the owner and manager respective-
ly of Players Club, as defendants. This suit
alleges that numerous acts of racial discrimina-
tion occurred at Players Club during the plain-
tiff's employment there. The defendants have
denied all charges and filed a counterclaim
against the plaiiff. The case is set to be tried
in Federal court later this vear.
Construction continues on in the lot behind Mendenhall Student Center. The lot was demolished along with all the trees in order for it to be expanded toward
10th street and the new main entrance near Joyner Library.
Meeting held to discuss additional funds to
help improve parking
ST U'F �l I T I H
A meeting was held Tuesday to discuss the
possibility of an addirional 12,5 million being
used to help improve parking on and around
Some of this money will lie borrowed from
local lending institutions, while the rest of it is
currently being held in reserve. This money
will be used ro finish current projects, such at
the parking lot behind Mendenhall, and to
pave the freshman lot at the Allied Health
Building. It will also lie used to pave the three
Reade Sr. lots, as well as start a new parking lot
where the old intramural fields are currently
"This is such a big business, wc arc nor
able ro pay for these projects solely with park-
ing revenue said James Midgette. director of
transportation services.
The current proposal calls for Si,25 million
to be borrowed from a bank. This proposal is
similar to the one put forth and accepted to
pave the bottom lots at Minges Coliseum a
few years ago.
"We actually have about half a million dol-
lars more in reserve, but we do not feel com-
fortable letting it dip below that for this pro-
ject because ir is emergency money. We decid-
ed to try and borrow the money to help keep
student fees down said. I,aton Cetsinger,
associate v ice chancellor of business affairs.
.After the meeting today, the proposal for
borrowing the additional SI.25 million musr
lie submitted to both the Board of Trustees
and the Board of Governors for approval, after
which the university will send requests for
proposals to various banks. The university- will
then choose from which bank it wants to bor-
row the money. According to Getsinger, the
university plans to pay back the loan over a
live year period in payments of around
S321,000 wirh a 9 percent interest rate. This
pav ment will come out of the revenue brought
in from tines, fee and parking meters Parking
and Traffic Services currently collects an aver-
age of Si. 4-1.5 million a year in revenue, com-
ing from fines, fees and meters, while operat-
ing costs run at about $750,000 a vear.
The new lots descried in the proposal will
be designed more for security and conve-
nience. They will have more blue-light
phones, as well as more lighting. Midgette
commented that he plans for all current park-
ing lots to be touched up the meet the same
quality that these new lots will have.

War buddies come to convicted

DENVER (AP) � Timothy McVeigh's fel-
low (julf War fighters took the stand today in

things Williams said.
When he heard that McVeigh was arresr-
ed in the bombing, his reaction was "no, no

it coming. He wasn't that kind of person
The defense planned to call dozens of
witnesses to trv to humanize McVeigh and
explain the FBI's deadlv siege at Waco that
fueled his rage against the government.

Health groups want to see fine print in any tobacco deal
WASHINGTON (AP) - The pending tobacco settlement could save lives, the American Cancer
Society said Monday; but the group added it wont endorse a deal without reading the fine print
to make sure it has adequate safeguards.
Proponents of the deal were encouraged by the response from the public health communi-
ty, whose support is considered vital for the settlement to be approved by Congress.
Moore and attorneys general from four other states met with tobacco industry lawyers
Monday to try to iron out the remaining sticking points in a settlement.
Some 34 states have sued the tobacco industry to recover Medicaid money spent treating
sick smokers. Moore is leading negotiations to settle those suits with a multibillion-dollar
megadeal rhat would set national tobacco policy. Among other things, tobacco firms would
undergo strict advertising curbs and have to reduce youth smoking or pay stiff fines.
UNC-CH chancellor sells school as people's university
CHAPEL HI LL (AP) - If Michael Hooker ever decides to run for political office, he should have
campaigning down pat.
The chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is doing everything but
kissing babies in his marathon tour of the state's 100 counties. He is handing out pencils to
school children, touring manufacturing plants, meeting farmers, going to NASCAR races and
eating loads of barbecue.
Hooker's trip is an effort to counter the arrogant image � "hubris he called it � that he
noticed when he came to UNC-Chapel Hill as chancellor two years ago. He set out to restore
the public's pride and feeling of ownership in the university.
Hooker casts himself as public servant, always making a point that part of his salary � and
that of the faculty � comes from the paycheck of the factory worker in Mars Hill and the
farmer in Franklin County. His message of accountability has struck a chord with legislators and
folks who tend to see UNC-CH as an elitist, monolithic institution.
The ttek, which so far has hit 78 of the state's 100 counties, seems to be paying off.

Government considers AIDS drugs as morning-after treatment
ATLANTA (AP) - After a night of sex, a woman and her AlDS-infected husband take his drugs
together. Anothet man turns to his doctor for pills after his condom breaks during a one-night
stand with an infected partner.
Some doctors are already prescribing such a morning-after treatment for people who fear
they may have caught HIY after risky sex, health officials say. Now the government is mulling
whether to give it the stamp of approval.
The idea is to give the drugs for a month to stop the AIDS virus cold - if it has invaded the
body. But there's no proof that it works, and some doctors fear a government endorsement will
be a license for careless sex.
AIDS experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are inviting doctors, state
health officials and AIDS advocates to Atlanta in July to talk about the idea, and possibly make
a recommendation, said Dr. Robert Janssen, director of the CDC's HIV-AIDS prevention divi-
Jurors learn of McVeigh's past - a model soldier, the class clown
DENVER (.AP) - Tmothy McVeigh was a lanky class clown dubbed "chicken" by his high school
classmates. He was a top-notch soldier who helped save a comrade's life and was saddened by
begging Iraqi children.
McVeigh was ail of those things before he blew up the Oklahoma City federal building,
according to friends and Army colleagues. He was charming at times, a young man who admired
fairness. He loved strawberry Pop-Tarts.
Attorneys for the 29-year-old Gulf War veteran hope glimpses of McVeigh's less ominous past
will spare him from execution for murder and conspiracy. He faces death or life in prison for the
April 19, 1995, bombing that killed 168 people, the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in U.S.
Testimony in the penalty phase was to resume yesterday. Jurors could begin deliberations as

New TV network could give powerful Moscow mayor a boost
MOSCOW (AP) - At a time when business tycoons have been buying up Russia's media, the
newest television netwotk is owned by the city of Moscow and is seen as a major asset for the
capital's powerful mayor.
Center TV the new network that debuted Monday, has a broadcast range limited to Moscow
and nearby towns. But its ditectors hope it will develop a national reach that can compete with
the leading networks, state-controlled ORT and privately owed NTV
Center TV chief Anatoly Lysenko said that the network will launch cable programming next
month and expand broadcasts to several large Russian cities by September.
The biggest beneficiary of the new netwotk could be Yuri Luzhkov, Moscow's dynamic
mayor, who is seen as a potential presidential candidate in 2000. He's expected to be feature
prominently in the network's news broadcasts.
Luzhkov is wildly popular in the capital, winning 90 percent of the vote in last year's elec-
tion. It's not clear what level of support, if any, he has outside Moscow. Many Russians who live
outside the capital are resentful of power and wealth concentrated in Moscow.

of the Financial Aid Office This summer changes are scheduled for the older residence halls and
some dining areas.

Domestic violence topic of lecture
Dr. Peggy Goodman, an assistant professor of emergency medicine at the
school, lectured on the topic "Social and Professional Challenges in the Fight
Against Domestic Violence" on Monday, June 9. Goodman addressed domes-
tic violence as a public health issue that is often unrecognized and unac-
knowledged by society She pointed out stereotypes and other issues which
impede recognition and intervention, as well as resources available in the
community. The presentation was pan of the "Perspectives" series, which is
sponsored by the medical school's Department of Medical Humanities and
the Biocthics Center of University Medical Centet
Legislators' School begins Saturday
The Legislators' School for Youth Leadership Development begins
Saturday on the campus of ECU. The first session runs through June 28 and
is for junior high school students. The student participants are picked for
their leadership potential. They will attend classes and participate in activi-
ties designed to enhance leadership development. The school was created
by the N.C. General Assembly and is under the direction of the Rural
Education Institute in the School of Education.
ECU study reveals rapid entrepreneurial growth across
rural North Carolina
Nearly 3,000 businesses in the state's rural areas have been identified as
high-growth, innovative firms through ECU's North Carolina
Entrepreneurial Rural Growth Study These firms, on average, are more 'han
10 years old with approximately 60 employees and revenues of $7.4 million
(in 1995).
As a group these firms are growing at an annual rate of 23 percent, with
most growing at annual rates of more than 60 percent over the past five years,
according to survey data.
Incoming freshmen receive scholarships

By the end of the week, the
same jury that convicred McVfeigh
in the April 19, 1995, blast that
killed 168 people is expected to
begin deliberating whether he
should die by injection or be sen-
tenced to life in prison.
Howard Thompson, now a New
York City parking attendant, said
he served with McVeigh and found
him to be someone who was out-
spoken about current events, but
never forced his views on others.
"He was a soldier's soldier
Thompson said.
Thompson said he once went to
McVeigh with problems he was
having with an officer, and
McVeigh advised him to try and
work them out while appealing to a
higher authority.
"I guess he doesn't like to see a
person being oppressed
Thompson said.
McVeigh smiled as his former
Army comrades testified on his
behalf. He appeared to have
received a new haircut cropped
very short on the sides.
William Dilly, a prison guard
from Barnsviile, Ohio, said he also
served with McVeigh and believed
him to be "probably the best sol-
dier" in his company.
Dilly said McVeigh had a camera
with him, and took pictures of dead
Iraqis on the battlefield.
"Him and Rodriguez were
the only ones that got any pictures
of any dead Iraqis Dilly said.
Later, Vicki Hodge, who grew
up with McVeigh in Fendleton,
N.Y, said she considered him her
"second brother" and described
him as "a clown, always a happy
In ninth grade, he was gangly,
and was known as "Chicken

She said when other people
tried to bother his friends,

As a teen-ager, McVeigh became
interested in guns. "My dad is
interested in guns too she said.
"It's a natural thing
She said he often talked about
gun control and in 1989 wrote a let-
ter to the editor on the subject.
"I think one of his biggest argu-
ments was it's not the gun that
kills the people, it's the person who
pulls the trigger she said.
The defense later intends to
call McVeigh's father, William
McVeigh, to discuss how his son
always considered himself an
underachiever. Other witnesses
were expected to include former
teachers and experts on Waco.
McVeigh's lawyers acknowledge he
believed the government mur-
dered women and children at
Waco, and was thus a threat to ail.
To help them understand more
about McVeigh, the defense has
promised to put jurors in his boots,
to read to them from the pages of
his favorite magazine, Soldier of
Fortune, and show them video-
tapes that validated his fear that
something terrible happened at
The defense is trying to counter
2 12 days of emotional testimony
by bombing survivors, rescuers and
victims' relatives who took the
stand in the prosecution's bid to
make McVeigh pay with his life.
Some jurors wept as the witnesses
spoke of their lost loved ones and
of their lingering pain.
"The defense will clearly focus
on McVeigh's absence of criminal
history and his military record and
they'll hope that his family can
speak as eloquently as the many
victims of the blast said Denver
defense lawyer Scott Robinson.

After his recent interview on VH-1 declaring him the "Rock &Roll President President
Clinton may have made some new fans among the viewers of the music video cable chan-
nel, but he sparked the criticism of House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
According to Gingrich, Clinton as well as endorsed drug use by not speaking against it
during the program. In a letter sent to the White House and various news organizations,
Gingrich said to Clinton: "Silence sends a message that drug use isn't that big a deal
Gingrich's concerns and comments pointed out the fact that there was no mention of
drug abuse on the VH-1 special. Once again, Snooty Newty might have jumped the gun
with his accusations.
A representative of the White House, Mike McCurry, in response to Gingrich's letter, said
there was no need for Clinton to address drug abuse during that program. Unlike MTV, VH-
1 is targeted toward an older, more mature audience of "post Second World War baby boom
generation not prone to drug abuse According to McCurry, Clinton was simply speaking to
the audience he thought was listening.
The President has done his share of speaking out against drug abuse. Just last month at
a forum on drug abuse held by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Clinton spoke sharply against
the fashion industry's use of the allure of heroin in its sales pitch. Clinton said he was con-
cerned that the industry's use of "gaunt looking models who appear to be in a stupor" has
made the idea of being on drugs (heroin in particular) seem glamorous and cool. White
House representatives said Clinton's disdain toward the fashion industry came after the
death of David Sorrenti, a 20-year-old fashion designer whose work often captured a "hero-
in look Sorrenti himself died of a drug overdose.
So we can clearly see the President's efforts to speak out against drug abuse, and we are
quite sure had he been addressing MTV viewers on last Wednesday night and not the older
VH-1 audience, he would have taken an appropriate stand against drugss.
Four-year degree isn't enough
l thought a four-year degree would
do it for me. Boy, am I surprised!
ft just is not enough.
J A young person can do a lot with
a four-year degree, but for an older
hon traditional alumni, such as
rnyself, it is more difficult. Add a
disability to age and it gets even
harder to find employment that will
pay the bills and leave just a little
left over.
This is exactly the predicament
that I find myself in, along with sev-
eral others. Those numbers out
there do not mean anything when
nearly one third of each paycheck is
deducted for tax purposes. A
$20,000 a year job gives take home
pay that is just in the low teens. In
order to bring home a salary in the
low twenties, one must earn in the
Having raised a family and hav-
ing been a mother and a homemak-
cr for most of my adult life is not in
one's favor when it comes to
employment. Those years are just a
big zero. At least that is how poten-
tial employers look at it.
Every job I look at that can meet
my basic expenses of a car payment,
rent, food, clothes and some enter-
tainment requires a Masters degree
and about one year of experience.
I could move away, but my home
is here. Giving up what I have here
to go to some unknown and unex-
plored place is scary. Again, a
younger person is not so timid and
more adventurous. Maybe that is
why it is one of the reasons that it is
easier to get hired, in the first place,
when you are a younger person.
In Brookfield, Wisconsin, there
is a job for a copywriter. That is a
long ways away. Moving expenses
are not included, and it pays little.
President Clinton has a commit-
tee to help people like me. I even
printed out a copy of it from the
internet. Now I need to figure out
how to get that committee to help
Offering a person a job that is
not even going to cover his or her
basic expenses is like offering no
job. What good will that do if one's
finances are not considered? I like
to write. I love to write. I believe I
can write about anything. If there
happens to be a person reading this
that can direct me to a job that pays
good and requires writing and imag-
ination and investigative skills,
please let me know about it.
Most students are not aware of
the amount of money it will take to
finance a car, rent an apartment, or
mortgage a home, buy food, gas,
clothes, and have just a little for
recreation and some to put into a
savings account for a rainy day.
Many corporate managers and
others making big money are now
homeless. The average person is
just two pay checks away from
being homeless. This is because
mortgage companies for homes, and
loan companies for automobiles,
and landlords who collect rent will
normally let a person get behind for
a month. Let a person get two
months behind and foreclosure,
repossession, and eviction proce-
dures start.
The younger graduate has a sort
of security blanket, often times, in
that their parents will bail them out
if and when necessary. My parents
are deceased. I, and a lot of others
like me, have no security net to
catch me if I should fall.
I have though about a home
based business. Maybe this will
work for me. I like writing copy.
Perhaps a small business loan to
start up such an operation is the
route I will take. I am undecided.
I could write columns for the
newspaper. Perhaps my own col-
umn. Still I would need to get a
good salary to do this.
Even employment in the federal
government does not pay much, but
with a master's degree, one can
start out in the forties.
So look ahead, plan and consider
all your options before you mind-
lessly take a job. Know exactly
where you are going and how you
are going to get there.

Mechanics, profession of disrepair
I thought auto mechanics were the
lowest on the pond ecological chain
(next in line to pleonastic opinion
columnists, of course). I mean, is
there a more helpless or angering
feeling than standing at the
counter of Meineke, Firestone, etc.
as the mechanic with a grimy, dis-
dainful contempt for you (the Non-
Grimy) tells you your pipes have
crystallized and it's gonna cost
$150 or whatever?
I mean, at least with doctors
theres a sincerity (and the worry of
malpractice) that makes hospital
experiences tolerable. But with
mechanics, it seems a bitter accep-
tance that getting gypped is part of
getting, the car fixed. Even worse,
you just hope they haven't done
something inside the engine that's
gonna cost you a few hundred
bucks down the road (pun blatant-
ly intended).
Well, I've found an acrid solace.
There is a profession that openly
disregards honest workmanship
more than mechanics: TV and
stereo repairmen. Here is a group
of guys who charge 20 bucks before
they even look at your TV and keep
the money. Even if you decide not
to pay the near-retail price they
charge to fix the thing.
What is it with fixing things that
constitutes such overt disregard for
honesty? Is it the fact that Mr. Fix-
It thinks they'd rather pay outra-
geous repair fees than just throw

juice maker) and start sending
them in to crooked repairmen.
We'll flood them with old appli-
ances, send them by the box-loads,
a virtual deluge of crappy appli-
ances. We'll be like the Israelites

ken toasters, black-and-white TVs,
and microwaves that still have
dials. Then well drown them in
2S6s and rotarv phones and 8-track

oppression. Freedom from robbery.
Freedom from stammers and

Students don't brake for (campus) safety
Students are busy people. We
hurry to class, we hurry down our
meals and wc hurry up our leisure
time. Maybe that is what explains
a daily occurrence on 10th Street.
Throughout the day and espe-
cially in the morning, you see
groups of laughing and chatting
students congregated at the bot-
tom of the Hill, waiting for the
green light to cross over into cam-
pus grounds. But then there some
who are not so patient. A few min-
utes is much too long for these stu-
dents to hang around at the side of
the road. No sir � they are in a
hurry and they must cross NOW
So, with traffic rushing from all
directions, these students swagger
out on the road, glaring down
motorists who dare to beep their
horns. In a dangerous cat and
mouse game, they walk a few steps,
then stop, continuing the process
until the mission is accomplissed.
Cars pass a few inches away.
Others jam on their breaks, tires
squealing as they desperately try
to avoid hitting these dimwits.
Okay, many of us have done the
same thing at some time in our
lives. I know that I have but not
on a continuous basis. A couple of
these students informed me that
only "incredible bores" wait for the
green light before crossing. I guess
that's the majority of us. However,
even one injury or death due to this
impatience (or ignorance) is too
On campus pedestrians have
the right of way at intersections
and crossings. Unfortunately, I
have witnessed both students and
faculty, not to mention ECU
employees who race around the
grounds as if they are on their own
private race tracks. A few weeks
ago, I saw a blind student with his
cane extended in front of him,
stand opposite The Croatan for a
good ten minutes, while all types of
motorists hurriedly zoomed pass.
Besides the obvious callousness of
the situation, I wondered about
the more dangerous aspects of it.
I have always taken my mortali-
ty and good health for granted.
Not anymore. Now I pay attention
to simple stuff like this and wait �
like an "incredible bore" � for the
green light. Hey, I'm in no big
hurry to get injured. Or to die.
Good neighbors don't sue
Neighbors, we all have them; we
.all must deal with them. Your
neighbor might live above or
below, right next door or a few
miles down the road. Some neigh-
bors are nice, while others can be
down right nasty. The nice neigh-
bors invite you over for a barbecue,
a couple of beers or just to watch a
good movie. The bad neighbors
play their music loud all the time,
complain about everything or they
sue you.
Bob Ramey, a city council mem-
ber who represents the fourth dis-
trict, which includes Tyler, Belk.
Jones, Aycock and Scott redidence
halls, has decided to take his
neighbor to court. Ramey has
taken it upon himself to throw
another case onto the overbur-
dened back of the American judi-
cial system. Ramey installed some
sky lights this past August.
Ramey's neighbor, Stella
Terpenning, has a tree whose limbs
extend some 60 feet over his prop-
erty. Ranic' had to have known
about the
'ore he had
the sky lights installed. Perhaps he
would have us believe the tree
grew 60 feet in a matter of months.
Ramey has the legal right to cut
the tree limbs. The problem is
that Ramey or whoever is going to
cut the limbs has to climb the tree.
Terpenning does not want anyone
to climb the tree, for fear of hurt-
ing the tree. The person climbing
the tree will most likely use tree
spikes, which could hurt the tree.
Even if Terpenning were to
allow someone to climb the tree,
the person doing the cutting has to
go onto Terpenning's property.
Terpenning does not want anyone
who is cutting the limbs of the tree
to come onto her property. She has
a very good reason as to why she
will not allow anyone on her prop-
erty. She is afraid of being sued for
liability if tiie person doing the
cutting were tc fall out of the tree
and injure themselves. I do not
know why Terpenning would think
her neighbor would sue her for lia-
bility. Maybe this fear of litigation
stems from Ramey's current law
suit and his threat of one a couple
of years ago.
It would seem the tree limbs
arc not the only problem Mr.
Ramey has with his neighbor's
pine tree. A couple of years ago
Ramey threatened to sue his
neighbor because of the tree roots
that were growing onto his proper-
ty. It appears that Terpenning's
fear of litigation is justified.
Bob Ramey has said he has tried
to be a good neighbor. Call me old
fashioned but I Jo not think suing
your 70-year-o'r! vidowed neighbor
for a $100 is being a good neighbor.
Ramey also says he was trying to
protect his property. Protect his
property, does Mr. Ramey feel that
the tree threatens him? .Maybe
Ramey has seen the movie
Poltergeist one too many times. Or
perhaps he just has a vendetta
against trees, sort of the anti-Arbor
day person. Whatever his reasons,
I am pretty sure a city council
member has better things to do
than pursue a frivolous lawsuit
against neighbors.

J long as there is Crypt Records,
there will be rock and roll, Daddy-
O. Amen.
Okay, say what you will, but I consid-
er Charlie Daniels a country legend.
His fiddle playing is world renown,
and he crossed over into the rock
market long before Garth Brooks
ever set foot in Nashville. Still, like
so many of his fellow aging country
singers, Daniels has slipped out of
the mainstream in recent years. But,
despite his absence from the charts,
he and his band show no signs of let-
ting up. Still touring clubs in the
winter and amphitheaters in the
summer, Daniels has stayed in the
public eye live, but now he and the
Charlie Daniels Band are back in
stares with their new release Blues
After becoming a born again
Christian a few years back, Daniels
did some gospel work, but he never
had any intention on turning his back
on his country roots. On Blues Hal,
however, Daniels crosses into yet
another genre and delivers a hard-
hitting album that is more blues than
country. In fact, there's nary an
acoustic guitar or fiddle present on
the album. Instead, the CDB deliv-
ers powerful keyboard rhythms that
are driven home by strong blues gui-
tar licks. In fact, Charlie decided to
use this album to spice up one"of his
older hits, "Long Haired Country
Boy with slide guitar that leaves the
CD player smoking
In fact "Long Haired Country
Boy" was picked to start the album
off. Featuring guest vocals by John
Berry and Hal Kctchum, the new
version of "Long Haired" also fea-
tured Charlie's new lyrics. After
going through his religious transition,
Daniels cleaned up a few of his
songs, and "Long Haired Country
Boy" was one of them. Gone are the
references to pot and drinking, but
the song doesn't lack because of the
changes. In fact, instead of being a
glossy reissue of an old song, it stand
on its own and has put Daniels' face
back on TV with its video.
"Long Haired" is also the most
country of the songs on the album.
Once the second track, "Boogie
Woogie Baltimore starts, there's no
turning back from the blues.
"Boogie" is a country and blues
hybrid that salutes the atmosphere
and life in Baltimore. But more
importantly, it's also a great song.
The CDB sounds amazingly tight
and renewed, and nary a note seems
strained. The whole CD flows with
smooth riffs and tight rhythms.
In fact, the only down spots on
the -afbum are "Hard Headed
Woman and "No Fool Like An Old
Fool Also, the two slowest songs on
the aibum, "Woman" and "Fool" tend
to leave something to be desired. In
fact, I have yet to make it all the way
through the seven and a half minute
"Hard Headed Woman" without
skipping to the next track.
Fortunately, the other nine tracks
more than make up for these two low
points. Songs like "Deep Elm Blues
"New Orleans Parish Blues" and
"Looking For My Mary Jane" leave
you wanting more when the CD fin-
ishes. In fact, I'd bet that years from
now. Blues Hat still will be considered
a shining jewel in Charlie's career.
The interesting thing to see will be
how smoothly Daniels flows from
country to blues live. If he can pull
off a balance between his old hits like
"The Devil Went Down to Georgia"
and his new material from Blues Hat,
1 expect big things to be waiting for
Daniels right around the corner.
One note for anyone looking for
Blues Hat, plan a trip to Wally World.
That's right friends, the new CDB is
only available at that Mecca of dis-
count stores, Wal-Mart. The advan-
tage of this is that the CD is available
new for only $8.96, so I guess that's
the silver lining in this dark cloud.
There are those special movies that when you see them, you feel certain that
they will become a staple of your video collection. You know, the ones like
Star Wars, Top Gun, The Breakfast Club and Dazed and Confused - the ones you
can watch and recite the dialogue better than the actors.
Chasing Amy, the new film from Kevin Smith, (director of Clerks and
Mallrats), is one of these movies. After the surprisingly weak sophomore
effort of Mallrats, Smith has regrouped to put together an extraordinary, live-
ry and witty film worthy of comparison with his sensational first feature.
Clerks. L . .
Chasing Amy is a romantic comedy-drama about young comic artist,
Holden (Ben Affleck), who, against the advice of best friend and business
partner, Banky (Jason Lee), begins to fall for Alyssa (Joey Lauren Adams).
Holden is immediately smitten, onrv to find out (in an incredibly hilarious
scene) that .Alyssa is a lesbian. This dramatic turn skillfully rises above the
pranks and intricately rich dialogue characteristic of Smith's other two films
by dealing with gender boundaries of the heart as well as the cruelties of
male jealousy. . �
Banky is probably the best pan of this movie. He is Holden s Sega
addictedwhiny and melodramatic yet surprisingly insightful best fnend.
Banky is first seen at the Comicon, signing autographs with Holden for their
comic book Bluntman (based on the infamous characters Jay and Silent
Bob) His ego takes a bruising when a fan harangues him for being a tracer
and not a real artist because Bankv inks in Holden's sketches to "give them
volume and definition But Banky bounces back with some roll-on-the-floor
funny one liners and puts everything back in balance.
Everything that comes out of Banky's mouth is a male stereotype. I his
is especially noticeable when Banky and Holden realize Alyssa is a lesbian.
Banky then barrages Alyssa with every stereotype of lesbians ever heard. He
asks, "since vou're into chicks, do you look at yourself naked in the mirror.
Though Kevin Smith has done an incredible job putting together a cohe-
sive plot that holds vour interest and makes you think about the conditions
of the heart, the excitement and humor of the movie he in the witty, fast
Silent Bob and Jay are back. Chasing Amy, Kevin Smith's return to farm, explores
what happens when boy meets girl, and the girl is a lesbian.
paced exchanges of dialogue that have become a trademark of a Kevin Smith
film. There are certain elements that Smith's films must have, such as point-
less Star Wars bantering, a tame cerebral main character with a slacker best
friend, and an epiphany by Silent Bob at the end, all which are evident in
Chasing Amy and which fluidly connect with the romance and drama of the
storv between Holden and .Alyssa.
After spending $6.1 million on Mallrats and having it sink Smith scaled
back to a mere $221,000 cost of production with huge success. This is
Smith's best project to date. Even though it is hard for anything to compete
with the greatness of Clerks, Chasing Amy captures its spontaneity while dis-
playing a more cohesive plot. The end is a little disappointing, yet forgivable
for the sake of art and aside from that one extraneous element. Chasing Amy
is a fantastic film. It holds together even if you haven't seen Clerks or
Mallran but because Smith has littered this script with tiny references to
his past films, if you have seen them, then it's all the better. Go see this
movie. It's full of surprises.
Pacino reveals his passion in Looking For Richard
Dale Williamson
Con Air, the latest action block-
buster featuring Nicolas Cage,
opened this past weekend and is
destined to be one of this summer's
biggest money makers. As fun as this
film probably is, it's received enough
publicity for the moment.
Therefore, I invite all movie buffs to
take a glance at a small treasure cur-
rently available on video.
Looking For Richard, Al Pacino's
directorial debut, may turn many off
because it is yet another
Shakespearean film (Within the last
couple of years alone we have vvu-
nessed such Shakespearean film
adaptations as Othello, Hamlet and
Romeo &Jufiet). But Pacino's film is
quite different from the rest of the
flock. Instead of presenting a faith-
ful or unique version of a
Shakespeare play, Rithard is more of
an exercise in interpretation, an
attempt to understand and make
accessible Shakespeare's great play;
Richard III.
Pacino's film is not simply a film
adaptation; it is a film about the
making of a film. We are given rare
peeks at how a film is constructed
through behind the scenes footage
of casting, rehearsals, site locations,
editing and so on. What concerns
Pacino here is not so much the fin-
ished product as the process itself.
He crafts his film in such a way that
the audience can share with the film
crew's struggles to not only create a
film but also interpret and compre-
hend Shakespeare's play.
This is a bold and risky task for
any filmmaker to tackle, let alone a
first-time director. Pacino is, of

Al Pacino is king.
course, an old pro in the film busi-
ness. He has established himself a
solid place in film history through
his groundbreaking performances in
such contemporary classics as The
Catfather, Serpitn, Dog Day Afternoon
and Donme Brasto. Pacino's acting
abilities have never been in question
(His performance in this film as
Richard, while very American, is
powerful and hypnotic), and now his
abilities as a film auteur are given
their day.
ftcino makes his film as accessi-
ble as possible for an average, main-
stream audience in the hopes that,
through osmosis, Shakespeare will
transform into something very
accessible. Spliced throughout the
journey of this production are inter-
views conducted with acclaimed
scholars, accomplished actors and
everyday people on the street who
express their perspectives of
Shakespeare. Through these inter-
views, the audience realizes that
Shakespeare encompasses various
realities. Shakespeare represents
everything from the artistic zenith
of a cultured, intellectual age to the
embodiment of confusion and pre-
Acknowledging that many people
fear Shakespeare, Pacino gently
takes his audience by the hand and
leads them through Richard III,
offering commentary and healthy
humor along the way. And, most
importantly, Pacino never lets his
audience forget that Shakespeare,
like any art, is open for various inter-
pretations. One of the film's liveli-
est moments involves Pacino's con-
frontation with an enraged scholar
who demands to know why actors
believe they know more about
Shakespeare than anyone. It's an

energetic moment that perfectly
exemplifies the passion Pacino and
his crew share for the bard and their
Richard is more than simply an
exercise in interpretation. It is pas-
sion captured on celluloid. Many may
think it silly for adults to become so
emotional over a simple play, but it is
emotion that allows great things to
be created. When there are so many
forgettable films filled with forget-
table performances floating around
the cinema sewage system, it is
extremely refreshing and inspiring to
watch a group of professionals put
forth so much time and energy into a
work with more regard for quality
than financial return.
Pacino expertly manages to make
his film artistic without being snobby
about it. He more than offers some-
thing for everyone. Mainstream movie
fans will be delighted with the star-
studded cameos Richard offers,
including such famous actors as
Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Kline, Alec
Baldwin, and Winona Ryder; film
scholars will applaud Pacino's use of
cinema verite and expressionistic
editing: historians will acknowledge
references to how the play reflects the
culture and ideology of a particular
historical moment; and educators will
appreciate the film's efforts to explain
such literary concepts as iambic pen-
Pacino may not have known what
he was doing while filming 1mkingFor
Richard (he constantly makes jokes
about being clueless as what to do
next), but the finished product is an
amazing and completely absorbing
work that greatly deserves a long life
for future generations to learn from
and enjoy. Whether or not
Shakespeare would approve of
Pacino's passion is left for others to
debate. As far as I am concerned,
Looking For Richard is a rare example of
a film that has much to say and give,
and an even rarer example of a film
that feeds the viewer's brain.
Stayed tuned next week as we
once again indulge in brain candy with
some form of a Hollywood block-
buster. I don't know what it will be,
but chances are it'll have lots of explo-
sions, plenty of witty one-liners, three

overpayed actors. Gee, I think I've

ACC referees believe they must attend

RALEIGH (AP) - Atlantic Coast Conference referees say they have their
own version of pay to play: to get lucrative game assignments they must pay
to attend summer camps owned or operated by the league s supervisor of
basketball officials. t
: That supervisor, Fred Barakat, decides how many games referees work
"and determines how much money they make. Referees say that not only
imust they pay to attend Barakat's for-profit summer instrctional camps,
Isome also agree to work without pay as supervisors at the camp to make cer-
tain the mod assignments keep coming. ; .

in Japan, Mike DiMuro expected some squabbles over strike zones and balk
" But when a batter poked him on the chest at home plate, and hordes of
anery players surrounded him in the middle of a game, he d had enough.
After a meeting with the head of Japan's Central League, which had
invited him to teach correct officiating, DiMuro said Monday he was pack-
ine his bags and going home. .
-I nope that if anything comes out of this, what comes out is that no
physical assaults will be tolerated on umpires and they will be able to do
their jobs safely" the 29-year-old Triple A umpire said
Japan is one of the most crime-free and nonviolent countries in the
world But the immensely popular sport of baseball is frequently marred by
macho brawls, although they rarely result in serious injuries.
The critical difference highlighted by DiMuro's experience is how little
respect umpires get in Japan. Umpires waffling in the face of disgruntled
managers and players are part of the sport here. ,
This is the first of a series ofartiHes m which we wiUpro-
filegoifcourses around the area thai are open to pubfc use.
One of the newest golf courses to hit this area
is Ironwood Golf and Country Club, which opened
on May 1,19. This is a private club, but they do
allow dairy play to non-members.
What makes this course unique is the fact it
was designed by professional golfer Lee Trcvino
and is the first Trcvino signature course east of the
John LaMonica, who has been the club pro
since the first day of business, says this course is
very member friendly and offers each level of
golfer a different challenge.
"It's a good challenge
from the back tees for
the real good golfer,
but yet it's not so
tough that the average
golfer could get beat
up LaMonica said.
The course was cut
from the wooded land-
scape for the back nine
holes and farm land for
. the first nine, which
makes the layout more
open on the front and
less on the back.
LaMonica said when
Trcvino last visited the
course he asked that some trees be put between
some of the holes on the front nine and currently
that is exactly what the grounds crew is working
on. But they won't plant too many, since homes
are being built around the entire golf course,
which will help break up some of that openness.
With the difference in landscape between the
front and back holes, LaMonica says golfers get a
different feel for their surroundings.
"You get two different looks LaMonica said.
"You get the look of the links look along with a
nice wooded look
The lush green fairways are complemented
with greens made of a new crenshaw bent grass,
which is more heat tolerant for the hot North
Carolina summers. This type of grass also allows
the greens to be firmer which helps the ball stick.
LaMonica, who also worked as a club pro at
Brook 'valley (Greenville) for eight years, says this
is one of the better designs he has seen.
"I thing with the piece of property they had,
they've done a great job LaMonica said. "It's
similar to Brook Valley because you never get tired
of playing it. Here you get different challenges
lb play at Ironwood, proper attire is required
and that consists of shirts that have collars.
Ironwood also docs not allow steel spikes, only soft
spikes. This is a format many golf courses are
changing to because the soft spikes don't tear up
the greens as badly.
During the summer, play will cost $35 for 18
holes and a can on Mondays through Thursdays.
The remaining three days, the cost is $39.
Ironwood isn't just a golf course, as it offers
many amenities, even to the non-golfer.
Christine's, which is a highly reputable restaurant
at the Hilton in Greenville, has opened up anoth-
er restaurant called Christine's at Ironwood.
Dining for dinner is open on Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday nights, with a Sunday brunch and for
lunch Tuesday through Friday.
The golf shop, which offers everything from
shirts to balls to clubs, has a polished look and is
beautiful in design. LaMonica says the cabinets
came from Oregon and were made specially for
this pro shop.
If you're not too sure about your golf swing,
LaMonica does offer golf lessons during the week,
Tuesday through Sunday. He says usually he
lessons last about 45 minutes and the cost is 30
dollars per session and during the year he runs spe-
cials in which a golfer can receive four lessons for
the price of three and he is very flexible on times.
Group lessons are also given.
Looking at this course you can see the precision
put into every hole. This course is perfect for the
golfer looking for the ultimate challenge or the
casual golfer looking for a little relaxation.
For more information about this course,
LaMonica can be reached at 752-4653.

Irates come up short in tournament
After missing the cut to the nationals last season
the men's Ultimate Frisbee Team headed to
California last week with the intention of bringing
home the national title.
The Irates, who took the title in 1994 and 95,
came up short this year in their quest and finished
third in the tournament behind champion
University of California-Santa Barbara and runner-
up Stanford. They finish th year 30-6.
During Friday play they defeated Cornell 17-7
and Obcrlin, Ohio, 17-5. The next day they beat
Madison 16-14 and LSU 17-9 and then lost to
Santa Barbara 6-17. In semi-final action, the Irates
lost to Stanford 8-17.

Hollar leads after first day
MOREHEAD CITY' AP) - Adrian Hollar of Newport jumped to the top of
the leader board Monday when he weighed in a 431-pound blue marlin on
the first day of the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament.
Hollar, the tournament winner in 1995, is the captain of the Sea Striker,
the third and final boat to weigh in a blue marlin.
Only 44 of the 179 boats in the field elected to fish the first day because
rough weather conditions were forecast offshore. j

after weighing in a 312-pound blue marlin. � .

Richmond lands Colonial Athletic Association
hoops tourney for 10 years
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond will be home to the Colonial Athletic
Association basketball tournament for the next 10 years under an agreement
that is expected to be signed this week. � .�
The agreement also could bring many of the conference s other spring
championships to Richmond as contracts with other cities expire and as local
facilities become available. �.� �
City Manager Robert C. Bobb said Monday he and CAA Commissioner
Tom Yeager have an agreement in concept. Some of the details have to be
worked out, but Bobb said he expects to sign a contract quickly.
"This is a huge, huge beginning Bobb said.
The CAA is a Division I league with nine members, including six. trom
Virginia. League members include American, East Carolina, George Mason,
James Madison, North Carolina-Wilmington, Old Dominion, Richmond,
Virginia Commonwealth and William and Mary.
Yeager said Richmond has been "very aggressive" is seeking tournaments

The winningest coach in East Carolina baseball
history, Gary Overton, submitted his resignation
Monday, June 2 af 13 years as head coach. The
announcement came out publicly Tuesday June
3, but Overton when asked about his retirement
this week said "he isn't saying anything on the
record Overton will officially vacate his post at
the end of the month.
In 13 seasons as head coach, Overton compiled
a 427-237-1 record. But Overton's roots have been
planted at ECU since the late 1960's as a student.
He then went on to be an assistant coach in the
1970's and head coach beginning in 1984.
Overton became an assistant in 1977, while teach-

Track teams run to successful year
Even though the men's and women's
track teams have gone through a
couple of obstacles this year, they
managed to perform at a high level
throughout the season.
Bill Carson, coach of the ECU
men's track team, said outside influ-
ences hampered the runners during
some meets this year.
"The weather was a major obsta-
cle to endure this year Carson said.
It is difficult to run in cold tem-
peratures when your lungs and mus-
cles are hurting from the cool and
wet weather. Carson could only
recall a couple of meets when the
weather was decent.
There was only two meets that
we competed in that were over 60
degrees Carson said.
Even though the ECU women's
track team suffered a few injuries to
a some of their veterans, they man-
aged to break 10 individual records
and four school records.
Charles "Choo" Justice, coach of
the ECU women's track team, said
the freshmen played a big part on
this year's squad.
"The freshman exceeded our
expectations for them and per-
formed great Justice said.
Both Carson and Justice agree
that this year has been a good year
for their individual teams.
"This year gave us the chance to
establish ourselves in the conference
and in the NCAA Justice said.
Even the attitudes of the runners
on the ECU women's track team
changed this year.
"My kids went from being excit-
ed just about making the NCAA
tournament to expecting to go to the
tournament every year Justice said.
The men's 4x400 meter relay
team this year, (James Alexander,
Darrick Ingram, Mike Miller and
Damon Davis) did really well, finish-
ing 53rd in the NCAA tournament
last week. They finished in fifth
place in the tournament. With the
finish they earned All-American hon-
'This year was a good year for us;
we achieved a lot Carson said.
Both teams are looking to the
future. Carson believes that his
4x400 relay team could finish in the
top three at the NCAA tournament.
He also wants to finish in the top 10
IC4A tournament, which has 101
east coast teams in it.
Justice is looking into the imme-
diate future, where he hopes to have
some All-Americans on the team.
(To be an All-American a runner
must be rated in the top seven of
their event.)
"With the students coming back
and the freshmen joining the team,
we will might have a few All-
Americans on our team Justice

ECU has appeared in 11 NCAA
tournaments with him on staff,
including five with him as head
coach. Those same teams won 10
conference championships in three
different conferences, including the
Southern Conference (1970, 74,
77), the ECAC-South (1982, '85),
and their present conference, the
Colonial Athletic Association (1987,
'89, '90, '91 '93).
Overton was named CAA Coach
of the Year, as well as the recipient of
the 1991 Will Wynne Award given by
the Raleigh Hot Stove League. The
award is presented annually to the
North Carolinian who contributed
the most to baseball the previous

The Pirates haven't hired a new
coach yet, but the school will be
advertising in the NCAA News for a
new head coach. .Assistant .Athletic
Director Henry VanSant hopes to
have a new coach named shortly
after the middle of July.
One of the names that has
popped up as a potential candidate
is Billy Best, a former Pirate and
coach, who is an assistant at N.C.
State. Howard McCuHough, who
finished in 1976 at East Carolina, has
also been mentioned as a candidate.
Mike Fox, the head coach of
Division HI school North Carolina
Wesleyan, is another candidate. Fox
just finished his 14th season at
Wesleyan, including a fifth place fin-
ish in this year's College World
Series. He has a 498-132-4 record
and has guided the Bishops to the
Division III Regionals for the 16th
time in the last 17 years.
Others whose names have
emerged as possible coaches include
Roger Williams, a former ECU assis-
tant now at Carolina; and Danny

Orientation Issue 1997

Jacqueline D. Kellum
Assistant Mews Eorrom
With orientation starting up for anoth-
er year, incoming freshmen need to
be aware of what they need to do to
make the most of it.
Beth Anne Pretty, director of orien-
tation and First Year Experience, says
orientation students should keep in
mind that all of the planned sessions
have a specific purpose in mind.
These sessions might include an
introduction to ECU'S academic regu-
lations, taking placement tests or
watching skits depicting the potential
problems of college life.
"We feel that alt of the sessions are
important, and that they should
attend all of them because they're all
there for a reason Pretty said.
In addition to attending all the ses-
sions, Pretty said, it is also important
for students to come ready to actively
"The most important thing I could
say to them is to ask questions
Pretty said.
Oientation students should also
remember to take advantage of the
people resources offered them at ori-
entation. The orientation assistants
are upperclassmen who have been
trained to help freshmen make their
transition into college life as smooth
as possible, and are there to help. And
if there is no orientation assistant
immediately available, there are usu-
ally other currently attending students
who are willing to answer questions.
"We've usually had comments that
most people are pretty nice around
here said former orientation assis-
tant John Reeves.
While all sessions are important
there are a few in particular that could
make the difference between a good
start to a successful academic career
or a dissatisfying freshman year, such
as the session which introduces stu-
dents to their prospective majors.
The placement tests in foreign lan-
guages, chemistry, mathematics and
English let students know if they need
to take any remedial courses or if they
are eligible to place out of the first
level of some classes.
Another extremely important ses-
sion is the one at which ID'S are made.
An ID is a must-have for any college
student. With it students are eligible
to participate in campus activities and
take advantage of resouces like the
campus computer labs or the Student
Rec Center.
Orientation students will get an
introduction to the Rec Center on the
first night of orientation, when from 9-
11 p.m. they will get an opportunity to
tour the new facility, participate in
demo aerobics classes, see a martial
arts demonstration, learn cheers from
the ECU cheerleaders, and enjoy free
: food. This activity is a new one for
Orientation this year.
"We're very excited, because the
first night will be in the Rec Center, so
that's very different" Pretty said.
Orientation students should keep
in mind that orientation is there for
them to learn about their new school
and to enjoy, but it is up to them to
take advantage of it.
May 15, 1997
To the Class of 2001 and Parents:

As freshmen at East Carolina University, stu-
dents will be taking on many new responsibil-
ities, one of which is registration.
"Students must learn to take responsibility
and accountability for their academic future
said Beth Anne Pretty, director of orientation.
"It is important for students to go to all of the
sessions in orientation and ask questions,
because now is the time to ask. A lot of stu-
dents walk in thinking that someone is going
to tell them what to take and this is not the
Registration is the responsibility of the stu-
dent. Each student should keep in mind sev-
eral factors that could prevent a smooth reg-
istration process.
One important thing for freshmen to
remember is that if they are tagged they can-
not register. Being tagged means that the stu-
dent has an unpaid fee somewhere on cam-
pus. These fees could range from an overdue
library book to an unpaid parking ticket.
"Students can check to see if they are
tagged by looking at ECU'S Web Site Pretty
Students can find the Web Site at
Another important thing for students to
know is how many hours they need to take. In
most cases, for students to receive financial
aid and loans they have to be a full time stu-
dent. A full time student is a student who is
enrolled in at least twelve hours per semester.
Students must meet with their advisers,
whose names are listed on each student's
schedule. Students must, obtain their advis-
ers' signature on the registration form that
will be given to them by their adviser.
"The signature signifies that the student
met with his or her advisor and yes, the class-
es he or she signed up for will work toward
the major the student has chosen Pretty
The best time for students to meet with
their adviser is a week or two before registra-
tion. This is important because advisers are
faculty here and they are busy with their own
"Don't wait until the last minute Pretty
Students should also keep in mind that the
classes they sign up for at registration partial-
ly determine the success of their college
career. Even if the registration process runs
smoothly there can still be some problems.
"Students should look at the big picture,
balance the time consuming classes with the
less time consuming classes" Pretty said.
The classes that a student registers for
should be related in some way to the major
they heve chosen. If the student hasn't chosen
their major then they should be taking classes
that will help them decide what major they
would like.
"These students should visit the
Counseling Center located in Wright 316.
They will lead the student in the career devel-
opment process Pretty said.
Registration can be one of the single
most important things that a student does.
Pretty said it is very important that the stu-
dent knows how to read the catalog and can
make wise decisions affecting their schedule.

Going to college adds many expenses
to your budget, not the least of which is
the cost of buying books. In fact, you
should estimate that your books for a
yaar in college will cost between $500
and $7001
Many colleges only offer their stu-
dents the option of buying their books
from the student store. Here at ECU, stu-
dents are lucky enough to have two
choices in where they buy their books.
ECU students get to choose buying
their books from the ECU Student Store
or the University Book Exchange (U.B.E).
By having competing bookstores, the
book prices here at ECU tend to be
slightly lower than at schools with only
one book store.
While students dread buying the
books each semester, they also look for-
ward to selling them back at the end of
the semester.
Book buyback prices are above aver-
age here in Greenville. Both the Student
Store and U.B.E pay approximately one-
half the price of the cost of a new book
when they buy back books from stu-
Matt Duncan, textbook manager for
U.B.E, said, "The most important thing
we look for when buying books back is if
the professor is planning to use the book
the following semester
Barbara Ward, sales manager for the
ECU Student Store, said that
after determining what books
the professors intend to use
again, the store looks at what
books they already have in
From that point, both
stores decide what number of
books to buy back based on
class enrollment figures.
"We mostly look for used
books because we know that
students prefer them because they are
more affordable than new books
Duncan said.

tant thing wo look

panies that deal with other colleges
across the nation.
"Books our wholesale company
wants are bought back here at U.B.E at

advantage to buy used
books because they are

Freshmen attending ECU in the fall will find that
they are attending the only major state supported
university that allows freshman to have a car on
This year's incoming freshmen will have two
available lots in which to park. These are located
on 2nd and Reade and at the Allied Health
Building. The freshman lot at 3rd and Reade is
being converted to a residential lot because of
complaints by residents that there has not been
enough parking to accommodate them.
These lots are not located directly on campus,
but Director of Transportation Services Jim
Midgette does not think that this is a major prob-
"I think that the transit system here at ECU is
great. There shouldn't be any problem with fresh-
men getting back and forth to their cars Midgette
Midgette also says that while he sympathizes
with students having to ride the bus, he also real-
izes that they are not the only ones who have to do
"Students are not the only ones whose cars are
displaced. Staff also experience these problems
with losing their lots to commuters and residents,
so some of them also have to ride buses
Midgette said. However, parking illegally is defi-
nitely not the way to try and beat the system.
"One thing I want to make clear is that you have
to have a parking permit or day pass to park on
campus. If you park on campus without one of
these, you will get a ticket. We don't want students
to feel we are being unfair, but those that do pay
for permits deserve to have a parking space
Midgette said.
The freshman lot at Allied Health is currently
scheduled for a makeover. This will include paving
the lot, as well as installing blue light phones and
improving lighting for security reasons. This type
of lot is being called a prototype of what all of the
ECU parking lots will look like in two to three years.
Extra patrols have also been added this year, with
the main additions coming in the evenings at the
Reade St. parking lots.
"We have received some calls from parents who
were upset at the fact that there children were
returning to school on the weekends and not able
to find a parking space because all of the lots were
fuli of unregistered vehicles. The added patrols
have really helped to cut down on this problem
Midgette said.
As for the rumors of a parking deck being built
on campus, Midgette said that while it is on the
horizon, he isn't sure how long it will be before it is
"No question, we will have a parking deck,
maybe one on East campus and one on West
Campus. But right now we feel that our immediate
needs are being met with the surface parking
Midgette said. One of the biggest reasons is the
cost of a parking deck as opposed to surface lots.
According to national averages, a surface parking
lot costs around $950 per space, while a parking
deck costs around $10,000 per space.

Financial aid � balancing the college buck

Many students think of college as an
unattainable goal because they can-
not afford it. In fact, the number one
reason people do not go to college is
because they cannot afford it finan-
cially! In reality there are several
options for people who need finan-
cial aid to go to college.
With the use of federal and state
funds, along with contributions from
ECU friends and alumni, ECU makes
every effort to help students obtain
aid to pay for their education.
Every student has access and eli-
gibility for some type of financial aid.
There are three main types of finan-
cial assistance available to qualified
students: gift aid (scholarships and
grants), long-term educational loans
and part time employment (work-
study program).
The primary goal of these finan-
cial aid programs is to provide assis-
tance to students who, without aid,
would not be able to obtain or con-
tinue their education. Therefore,
most of the funds are awarded on the
basis of financial need. However,
there is assistance for talented stu-
dents based on merit rather than
financial need.
The ECU Office of Financial Aid is
located on central campus near
Joyner Library in the Old Cafeteria
Building. Information on assistance
of various types can be obtained
ECU participates in six federal aid
programs which are need based: Pell
Grant, Supplemental Educational
Opportunity Grant, Perkins Loan,
Nursing Student Loan, Work-Study
Program and Stafford Student Loan
In addition to those programs,
ECU offers other types of assistance
provided by state and university
funds and private contributions.
Some of them are: need-based
scholarships, merit scholarships,
departmental scholarships and the
Minority Presence
grant program.
The Office of
Student Financial
Aid also provides
information on out-
side scholarships
and aid from pri-
vate organizations.

The East Carolina Transit
Authority provides transit service
to ECU students, faculty and staff.
They provide timely service to,
from and around East Carolina's
campus, even to the off campus
areas, and several shopping ser-
vice areas. Taking the bus does
not cost any fare.
There are five different main
routes serving off-campus areas.
All lines run twice an hour at thir-
ty minute intervals.
The Purple Line goes around
many of the apartment areas,
Mendenhall, Christenbury and
Umstead Hall. The Silver goes to
Tenth street, Christenbury and
University Condominiums,
among many other apartments.
The Gold bus during the week
goes to Mendenhall Student
Center, College Hill, Harris Teeter,
Minges Coliseum and a few more
places. On the weekends, the
Gold bus takes students to places
such as Target, Walmart, and the
Plaza Mall. The Brown and Red
lines travel to many apartments
from Mendenhall.
A bus schedule is available, so
people cart see the times and
places each bus goes. It is very
helpful to have a schedule if you
plan on riding the transit at any
time. The brochure provides a
map showing where each stop is.
It also lists the service areas. The
time the bus is expected to arrive
at each place is published also.

Captain Thomas Cooke, who

wants to make sure freshmen know
about all the various advantages that

that miny freshmen are frightened
away from considering nOTC as a
class option because of many mis-
conceptions of the Arm, resulting
mostly from films that present mili-

obligated to perform years of mili-
tary service.

able to compete for scholarships.
"We can help people get through

A minimum 2.5 GPA and at least

The ROTC can also be a valuable
asset to incoming freshmen in help-

campus, help with registration if nec-

that might come up.

games, and a formal dinner held

is about 20 percent, which is really
not as much as we'd like
Cooke says the ROTC has so
much to offer incoming fresh-
men�discipline, motivation, and
physical fitness, among other
things. And for those who choose
it, a military career after college
can be equally as rewarding.
Some choose to put in a few years
to pay back the scholarships that
helped them through school, and
during their enlistment can
receive training that prepares
them well for finding a job when
they get out.
"We can offer you a job, and
you do something worthwhile for
four years, and you have a resume
thafs two or three pages long
Cooke said.
For students who definitely
want to sign up for Army ROTC
their first semester, the class is
Military Science (MLSC) 1001.
There are two sections, with sec-
tion one meeting on Tuesdays 9-
10 and section two on Tuesday 11-
12. The lab portion of the class is
MLSC 1011 and meets on
Wednesdays 3-5.
For anyone who would like
more information about ROTC
before deciding, there will be an
information session at 8:30 and
3:00 on day two of orientation in

Campus Nutritionist Laura Hartung
emphasizes that while what you eat is
important, how much you eat is espe-
cially crucial.
"the amount and frequency is
what's important. You should watch
portions even more than what food
you're eating Hartung said. "Even
pasta can be fattening if you eat six
cups of it as a meai. Think about
hunger versus what looks good
T�Ht does not mean that food pyra-
mid should be discounted. Hartung
encourages students to include a
source of vitamins A and C a day
when eating. Vitamin A sources
include cantaloupe and other foods
with orange or green color, such as
baked sweet potatoes. According to
Hartung, these foods contain anti-oxi-
dants which help prevent heart dis-
ease and cancers.
Vitamin C sources include oranges
and other fruits, as well as green pep-
pers, broccoli and kiwi.
"The best way to start eating right
is to start with breakfast Hartung
said. "Studies show that children who
don't eat breakfast actually have high-
er cholesterol than children to do eat
According to Hartung, breakfast
and lunch are so important because
the body's metabolism is the quickest
in the first 12 hours of the day. People
should eat the bulk of their calories by
2 to 3 p.m.
"Women especially tend to save
their calories
until dinner time
and then eat a
big dinner. This
is really not good
for you because
at this time your
body's metabo-
lism is much
slower Hartung
"Freshman do

lts your new so-called college life
Iks Mall"
Jennifer Leygett
Staff Wmrrmm
It was a 97-degree day in the middle of
August. My parents were helping me
move into my room in Clement Hall
and were probably as happy to get me
out of their house as I was to go. I was
actually relieved when they left, and
lifer that night, as I inspected the
premises and roamed that hall in
search of new friends, I remember
thinking that dorm life might not be so
Well I definitely have lots of good
stories to tell. But I have never regret-
Sfor one second living in a residence
It has been an education all in its
V and even though some of the
time I was miserable, most of the time
living in the dorm was pretty cool.
Just think, as freshmen, most of you
are away from home for the first time.
Maybe you are scared or a little wor-
ried, and that is okay. But, with so
rhuch freedom, after the first night or
two, you won't even remember why
you were worried in the first place.
What could be better than living on
� hall with 32 or so people, staying up
lite, going downtown, dodging calls
from your mother, exposing your hall-
mates to your exquisite music choices
(just don't be mad when they return
the favor), and ordering pizza at two in
the morning? When you live in the
dorm, the world is yours. No one is
screaming at you to mow the lawn or
eat broccoli. Your mom isn't yelling at
you to turn the stereo down a few deci-
bels. And you don't have to wash your
dishes until they are so rank you can't
stand them.
On the down side to all this, you
have to do your own laundry, eating at
Mendenhall pales in comparison to a
home cooked meal (even if that home
cooked meal is a TV dinner), and when
you are worshipping the porcelain god
after a night of heavy drinking at the

mates can be a great i.iing. In fact, my

tation. But from my experience, ECU
Housing is not known for matches
made in heaven. There is only one sec-
tion on the housing application where
you get to make any decision about
who you spend the next two semester
with � the "smoking" or "non-smok-
ing" box. Wowl What a scientific
approach to placing strangers together
who have to live in a nine by 12 room
for two semesters. Shouldn't ECU
Housing at least ask for your music
preferences or a zodiac sign?
But no mat-

There is so much about life in a res-
idence hall that could never be

have to have your own experiences

that if you are living without air condi-
tioning, bring lots of fans because it
will be practically unlivable until

Often find ourselves broke or poor
and in need of stuff to do that
doesn't cost a lot of money. ECU
offers many affordable things for
entertainment � frisbee-golf is
just one of them.
Throughout the campus there
are other things for entertainment
for summertime students such as
the Student Recreation Center,
which provides indoor and out-
door pools, basketball courts, a
rock climbing wall and a very nice
fitness center. All you need to get
into the Rec Center is a valid ECU
There is the Outdoor
Adventure Facility, where, for
minimal fees, students can rent
canoeing or camping equipment
and other stuff for summertime
fun. Student Rec Services has
sporting equipment such as fris-
bees for disc-golf, golf clubs, bas-
ketballs, softballs, etc. These
things can all be obtained by leav-
ing your student ID until you
return the item.
Mendenhall Student Center
has pool tables and a bowling
alley that are kinda cheap. The
student center shows free movies
in Hendrix Theatre during the fall
and spring semesters. During the
summer, the movies will be
shown in the Fleming Hall court-
yard. Make sure you bring a chair
or a blanket.
There are free bands on
Wednesday nights at The Bean
Bag on Jarvis' Street. If there are
enough people interested, The
Bean Bag has open-mic poetry
readings on Thursday.
Around town there are several
city parks that are good for walks
or bike-riding, and the Jaycee Park
has skateboard ramps. The Town
Commons on First Street is a
great place to relax.
Then there is the Greenville
Museum of Art, located on South
Evans Street. It keeps regular
hours anad sometimes hosts spe-
cial exhibits.
For cheap movie watching, the
$1.50 theatre downtown isn't a
bad deal. People-watching down-
town can prove to be rather inter-
esting, also.
Look around campus for fliers;
there are usually annoucements
of events posted all around cam-
pus. This is where you can find
out about plays, bands, art shows,
readings, etc going on around
town and at school.
So go out and do something. It
doesn't take much, if any, money
in this town to have fun.
Remember to be safe though by
taking friends � they aren't hard
to make around here, either.
Strike it cheap at the Mendenhall
bowling alley. It doesn't cost much,
and you get to wear funny shoes.

Not just a
car picnic with
the family
anymore. This
sport involves
serious school
spirit, coolers
full of goodies,
grills, frisbees
and the
occasional car.
What's this place they call downtown?
Andy Turner
Lifestyle Editor
Do you hear it calling you? Come,
dance with me. Listen to my music.
Partake of my many beverages. Spend
your money.
Downtown Greenville � it is a place
of legend, infamous or otherwise. It
beckons forth the newly matriculated
to enter the bars and clubs that have
certainly contributed to ECU'S "party
school" reputation. You've heard the
stories. You have visions of tanked
boys and girls flinging and flopping
against one another. You wanna fling.
You wanna flop.
The first thing you may wonder:
Where the hell is downtown? It's locat-
ed near the end of campus where
Clement and White resident halls are. If
you can make it to the corner of 5th
Street and Cotanche Street, you'll be
smack dab in the middle of all the bars.
Now what?
Hopefully, the following summaries
of downtown establishments will give
you some idea as to where you want to
go. Nearly all of the bars admit persons
18 years and older; however, they all
strictly enforce the minimum drinking
age. Snicker, snicker. Well, most of
them do.
The Attic: I'm starting with one of
the two oldest establishments. If a fair-
ly big band comes to town, more than
likely they will be playing at The Attic.
The Ramones, Drivin' and Cryin' and
R.E.M. have all played there in the past.
Hootie and the Blowfish and the Dave
Matthews Band played at The Attic all
the time for like $5 before they became
huge rock stars. Also, there's Comedy
Zone on Wednesday nights.
The Elbo: The second of the veter-
an downtown bars, The Elbo is often
the first place freshmen head. There's
plenty of dancing, drinking and "hook-
ing up" among the mostly young
BW3: If you want some really good
and really hot hot ings, this is the
place. There's no cover charge, so it's
often packed, especially on the week-
ends. You can hang out and play the
trivia game. It also has a patio, where
local bands play every so often.
La Vista; Many people still call this
place Milano's, so don't be confused.
La Vista always has a good number of
food and drink specials. The patio is
great, especially when the weather is
Underwater Cafe: Underwater is a
laid back place to relax and hang out
with friends and have a few beers. It
attracts a slightly older crowd; small
(often acoustic) bands play many
Peasant's. It's heaven to the roots
rock crowd. If you like Phish and the
Grateful Dead, this is your thing. Bands
play several nights each week.
Peasant's also has a pretty big patio.
Alfredo's Alfredo's II Alfredo's is
the perfect place to grab some pizza
after a long night � cheap and pretty
good. Alfredo's II has a diverse crowd
and pool tables.
Sports PadSplashSharkey's:
This place is huge. It has like a million
pool tables, and there's also air hockey
and video games. If you want to dance,
go to the Splash side. If you want to
relax a little, go to Sharkey's, where
acoustic musicians are often featured.
The Percolator Coffee House:
Coffee is another liquid refreshment
that you will more than
likely learn to love dur-
ing your college days.
All kinds of interesting
folks can be found at the
Percolator. It has open-
mic nights and poetry
reading sometimes. Just
remember to not drink
of the dreaded decaf.
Decaf is evil.
Boli's. Boli's has
great calzones. It's a very
well-lit place, good for
watching games on the
TV or whatever else pops in front of
Pantana Bob's: There's lots of flip-
ping and flopping here. Dance the
night away if you want at Pantana
Bob's. The age of the crowd varies.
Firehouse Tavern: The newest
joint downtown, the Firehouse Tavern
bills itself as Greenville's Ultimate
Sports bar. If you need to get your
sports kick, go there. However, beware
on the weekends; it's plenty packed,
and you may have hard time Ending a
seat to watch the big monster truck
rally on ESPN2.
Cheap Shot O'Malley's: Cheap
Shot's is another laid back kind of
place. If you just want to hang with
your friends, go or something.
Wrong Way Corrigan's: Corrigan's
features a lot of blues and blues rock
bands on the weekends. The crowd is
generally older; there are a lot of non-
The Cellar: The Cellar is another
place you can shake it. It feature three
different rooms, one playing rock, one
country and one dance. The crowd is
normally a little older than the Elbo
Hurrah Harry's: Hurrah Harry's is
an interesting place. The laid back
atmosphere complements the place,
which always seem kind of dark and
garage-like, a good thing. They also
have pool tables.
Omar's: Omar's has very good
Greek food. They also have a good
selection of microbrews.
Happy's Pool Room Happy's is
timeless. If you want a good taste of
Eastern Carolina life, go to Happy's. It's
a great place to play pool, and you
gotta love the Pabst Blue Ribbon
Beverage Center sign that adorns the
Chico's. Chico's has great Mexican
food. Make sure you try the Hungry
Pirate sometime. If you are under 21,
you won't be able to get in later on in
the night.
So, I hope this helps you somehow.
Downtown Greenville can be a blast,
and it can be dull as hell. There are a lot
of other places to go in Greenville that
are totally different from the down-
town scene. Explore, be creative. But
remember, the boogie man is alive and
well, and he lives in Greenville. Be safe.

2What do you do for fun?
rle Greenville may not exactly
arriving metropolis like New York
or LA, it still has its fair share of
entertainment and escapism. So, for
allydu movie, music and book freaks,
here's the two-minute tour of the
Pita� country.
Sitwe I arrogantly pride myself on
being an "expert" in the world of film,
lette start our tour with the local movie
seen At the moment, Greenville has
five theaters, although a 12-screen
multiplex complete with a state-of-
the-art THX sound system is reported
to oon be built. But that will be then;
this-is now.
fThe Carolina East Cinema is the
"cWssJesf theater in town, especially
since it recently installed a DTS sound
sysfam in a couple of its screens.
Asfae from that worthy feature, the
Carolina East has the distinction of
belrtg the only Greenville theater with
four screens. The screens themselves
arefrttauch to brag about (none of the
" local'screens are), but they still offer
the1 more pleasant viewing experi-
The main advantage Carolina East
has'fe its lobby, which is more spa-
cidus and conveniently constructed.
Oncw Inside the theater, one has easy
access to the individual theaters,
locatacl in four sectioned-off corners
of thp lobby. Sectioning off the the-
atersfls essential because it allows
traffic! leaving one showing to exit
withdft crashing into those waiting to
get irj�The other local theaters have a
big problem with traffic flow simply
became the theaters and the lobby
are n arranged in a rational manner.
The other key to the success of
Carolina East is the fact that the snack
bar is smartly located in the center of
the lobby, as opposed to the rear. This
not only allows lines to form around
the snack bar without bothering those
who simply want to skip food and see
the movie, it also allows the employ-
ees to serve as many customers as
possible as quickly as possible, there-
by making the wait for food short.
But the Carolina East is not perfect,
and like the Carolina East the other
theaters also suffer problems. The
Buccaneer, which tends to have wider
screens than the Carolina East, has its
snack bar in the center of the lobby,
but the lobby still leaves much to be
desired because it isn't built to hold a
large, sell-out crowd.
The Park, Greenville's only $1.50
theater, handles itself nicely. Since the
Park only has one screen, there isn't
much of a problem with traffic flow.
While the theater itself isn't great, the
Park, for its price, is pretty satisfying.
The main complaint with the Park cen-
ters around the movies it typically
decides to show, but I won't deal with
that issue now.
The worst of the bunch is without a
doubt the Plaza. Not only is this the-
ater simply ugly, it is also illogically
constructed. The lobby is too small for
a three-screen theater, thereby caus-
ing serious
problems; the
snack bar is
located in the
rear of the
lobby, there-
by causing
more crowd-
ing problems;
and the indi-
vidual the-
aters are awk-
wardly situat-
ed down nar-
row hails,
thereby caus-
ing even
more crowding problems. Oh, by the
way, the screens and the projectors
here equate poor cinema. When I
finally saw Schindler's List at the
Plaza, I distinctly heard the projector
cranking the reel around. The Plaza
almost makes a movie trip to Raleigh
worth the effort.
There is one final option open only
to ECU students and faculty and their
friends: the Student Union's Hendrix
Theatre located in Mendenhall, the
one theater not monopolized by the
same man. This, in many ways, is
Greenville's best cinematic choice. Its
screen is large and does maintain the
aspect-ratio of widescreen cinema.
The seating area is spacious, allowing
for a rather large sell-out crowd,
which can get rowdy at times,
depending on what movie is showing.
Hendrix has several advantages
over the other local theaters. For
starters, all films can be seen for free,
which makes Hendrix the best choice
for your buck. Also, Hendrix, unlike
the Carmike chain, will once in a while
siip in higher quality film selections.
However, if your taste buds lean
more towards the art house features,
then you better dig into the local video
market, which is quite strong. There
are more video stores in this town
than you can shake some type of thin,
wooden object at. Greenville has the

films. And, oh yeah, they have lots
and lots of new and used music for
Speaking of music, Greenville is
also a hot place to increase your
CD collection. Believe it or not,
Greenville offers some of the finest
selections in CD's anywhere in this
state. Within one single block,
there are two primo music stores,
CD Alley and Skully's. While both
are fine stores, my personal prefer-
ence slants towards CD Alley,
which has almost become an insti-
tution at ECU. If you can't find it at
or get it from CD Alley, you don't
need it.
But, of course, ECU students
aren't simply here to dance and
slam to the best in music. They are
here to broaden their minds. Here's
a novel idea: read a book.
Greenville's rapid growth has
resulted in a book surge, thanks to
such major book chains as Barnes
& Noble and Waldenbooks.
But if corporate chains aren't
your thing, there are several inde-
pendent book stores around. The
Book Warehouse constantly has
deals on new books, while many
used goodies can be found at such
spots as the Book Worm and the
Book Potato.
If your brain thirsts for some-
thing with more visual flair, then
dive into Greenville's lucrative
comic book market. Comic fans
need not fear because Greenville
(thankfully) supports two excellent
comic shops, each with its own
personality. Heroes Are Here Too is
located right downtown, so it is the
most convenient of the two. But
that is not all this store has going
for it. If you want your superhero
stuff, including trading cards, this
shop and its uncannily friendly ser-
vice does not disappoint.
Everything from Captain America
to Cerebus, heroes are indeed
If your tastes are more, let's say,
alternative, hop and skip a few
blocks down to Nostalgia
Newsstand, located off Dickinson
Avenue. If you thought comic
books were just for kids, step into
this colorful and sometimes unset-
tling corner of the world.
Nostaiigia has heroes and much,
much more.
Okay, that was more than a two-
minute tour, but you get the point.
Maybe Greenville isn't Charolotte
or Raleigh, but it's also not a
watery hole in the ground. Like
anything, Greenville is what you
make of it. If you're new to town
and you want this strange land to
become more familiar and develop
into your new home, then get out
and brave your new world.
Welcome to Greenville, and
enjoy your stay.

You don't have to go broke to eat
Carolyn Weakland
Staff Write
Coming to a new town, especially one
as colorful as Greenville can require
some getting used to. If you're any-
thing like me, you like to eat good
food, be surrounded by good friends,
and not have this experience tear to
deeply into your pocket. Where might
you find such a balance of life's little
Well, good cheap food I think I can
help you with, but as far as friends,
you'll have to be on your own. Now,
I'd like to caution � well, more like
remind you � that these places are
for cheap, good food, in a cool atmos-
phere � right? Well, sometimes
many of the so-called more colorful
people in this town also know these
deals too, so please do not be
shocked by any peculiar actions you
may be exposed to. Whether you're in
the mood for down home cookin' or a
burrito, there's a place and a price for
just about every taste imaginable.
Longing for grandma's cooking?
You might want to check out Venters
Grill, (752-2767) located on Mumford
Road. This restaurant converted from
a double-wide trailer will not let you -
walk away hungry. Upon arrival,
there's a sign posted clearly stating
no profanity. Take this sign seriously;
they will throw you out if you get too
rowdy. You can seat yourself at any of
the picnic tables and read the daily
specials on the chalk board posted on
the wall-there are no tangible menus.
You are served on paper plates and
eat with plastic utensils�very cost
efficient, don't you think? Hopefully,
you like tea because it's the only tasty
beverage served there aside from
water. However, if you are unpartial to
tea, there is a soda machine right out-
side the trailer for your convenience.
A typical lunch will run you about $3-
$4 bucks and you can choose from
barbecued turkey, yams and corn on
the cob to meatloaf, cabbage and
rutabagas. Your plate will be full until
you are, so bring an appetite.
If you're looking for a meal that
doesn't require a nap after comple-
tion, perhaps you want to check out
some of the restaurants located
downtown on Fifth Street. Chico's
Mexican restaurant located at 521
Cotanche Street (757-1666) has devel-
oped a lunch special in honor of the
starving ECU student. Dining in its
authentically decorated atmosphere,
the Hungry Pirate is a treat for all.
This burrito is stuffed with beef,
beans, rice, lettuce, sour cream, spe-
cial Mexican sauce and cheese. Did I
mention complementary chips and
salsa come with every meal � unlim-
ited amounts? However, be warned,
the salsa is homemade and can get a
bit hot at times. All together this mas-
sive meal will run you about $3.95
and if you are still hungry after this,
I'll be surprised. I usually ask for a
doggy bag.
O.K. Mexican and down home
cookin' aren't quite your speed today.
You're more in the mood for a pizza.

gratulations, you've made it!
You're on a college campus, away
from home and in control of your own
Iff now. Despite what your parents
Ijity think, most of you are far enough
Hway that you can do what you want
without too much input from them.
However, that means that you have
some decisions to make for yourself
that could affect your life for years to
come, including financial decisions.
"Every college student, whether it's
true or not, makes jokes at some point
like, "Money? Please, I'm in college
aJrlfortunately, this scenario is most
l$�n true, as college life seems to be
a giant money vacuum that sucks its
Victims dry. So, how do you avoid the
poor man's burden of college? Start
fanning now for the rest of your life.
: First and foremost, all students
should have a banking account of
their own, and a checking account is
highly recommended. Checking and
sayings is even better, but you have
o .fit your accounts to your money,
an opening a checking account,
shop around for the best offers. Most
banks have college banking plans that
really help, so don't be afraid to ask.
Other questions to keep in mind
What are the complete charges
that the accounts have? (i.e. Is there a
flat monthly fee, and are there any
hidden charges that may pop up?)
Is there a limit on the number of
checks written monthly?
Does the account come with an
ATM card?
If so, are the bank's ATM machines
close and readily available? Is there a
certain number of free ATM with-
Is there a "1-800" number for 24
hour account information?
Does the bank offer a form of over-
draft protection?
One major pitfall of checking
accounts is the infamous bounced
check. Overdraft protection allows
you to guard against this. Some
banks have a line of credit available
that, in the event of insufficient funds,
will cover the check up to a certain
amount. Some banks also have a sys-
tem that, if you also open a savings
account at the bank, will take the
extra amount of the check from your
savings account. These are important
options, considering that a big
enough mistake will stay on record
with the credit bureau for seven
Another step in money manage-
ment is to prioritize. Take a look at
what is important to you and decide
how much money you want to put
into each thing. Then decide what
sacrifices will have to be made to
accommodate that. For example, last
year I decided to buy a new guitar. I
looked at my money and decided I
could eat cheaper and stay home
more instead of going out a lot. So, I
used the money I saved from those
amendments to my life to cover my
Speaking of going out, everybody
knows that Greenville has a reputa-
tion and some great clubs, but before
you head out the door think about
how much money if II take to com-
plete your plans for the night, and
vow not to spend more. Ifs easy to
get caught up in club-hopping or buy-
ing food downtown, but it gets expen-
sive quick, so be careful.
Finally, avoid the Satan of college
finances, credit cards. Yes, it feels nice
when all these companies send you
packets offering you instant credit,
but realize that, as friendly as these
companies sound, their main interest
is themselves. If you do fee! that you
must get a credit card or if you decide
to get one to build a credit history,
shop around again. Some have lower
finance charges, and with a little bit of
looking, you can find one with no
annual fee. Always be sure to read
the fine print, and keep track of what
you charge. Allow yourself to only
use the card in certain situations and
think about how you're going to pay
the bill before you charge. If you real-
ize that you won't be able to pay the
biil, put the card back in your pocket
and remember that you'll thank your-
self later.
No financial plan can account for
everything, and nobody is perfect at
keeping money. However, if you take
the time to lay down some rules for
yourself and then keep to them, you'll
find that after your time here at East
Carolina you'll be on better ground
than many of your peers, and you'll
have a good start on how to live the
rest of your life.

What does greek life offer freshmen?

going hiking.
Jacqueline D. Kellum
Assistant News Editor
Among the many decisions facing fresh-
men is whether or not to join a Greek
For the many who may be uncertain,
three leaders of the Greek organizations
here at ECU urge freshmen to give it a
chance and try to move past any stereo-
types they may have of Greek life.
TEC spoke with Chris Rey, president
of the ECU chapter of the National
Panhellenic Council, which includes all
Afr'can-American Greek organizations,
Chris Arline, president of the ECU chap-
ter of the Inter-Fraternity Council, or
men's fraternities, and Tera Stutzman,
rush director for the ECU chapter of the
National Panhellenic Conference, which
includes women's sororities.
Many incoming freshmen may have
the perception that the primary function
of Greek organizations is to have parties,
but these three leaders say they also do
community service, provide personal
and academic support and participate
heavily in other campus activities.
"We do a lot of things that a lot of
people don't see. We have those food
drives, and charity events, and all those
things that represent Greek life. That's
really why we were founded, to do more
in the community Rey said.
Other freshmen might believe that
being in a Greek organization costs too
much, and only upper-class students are
Greeks. In fact, all three Greek leaders
agreed that most of their members
receive financial aid and work jobs, and
pay their own dues.
"I pay for my dues, I work to pay for
those; the vast majority of my fraternity
brothers are all on financial aid, and they
work jobs Arline said.
Rey, Arline and Stutzman all pointed
out the advantages of having a strong
support system at the start of a college
career, one which can provide advice on
how to adjust to college life and other
"If you go Greek, if s like a home away
from home. You have 50 to 100 people in
your organization that are around you
and helping out any way they can
Stutzman said.
These three leaders agreed that
deciding whether or not to join a Greek
organization is an indi-
vidual decision, one
which should be consid-
ered carefully, with all of
the pros and cons in
mind. Freshmen should
remember that there is a
time commitment that
comes with joining a fra-
ternity or sorority.
"It does put a slight
time constraint on you,
but, by the same token,
you learn to manage
your time right from the
beginning, and thafs
very important Arline
To counteract the potential negative
effects on grades caused by the time
commitment, many Greek organizations
have regulations on study time, and
place a high emphasis on academics first
and Greek life second.
"We have required study hours that
the pledges have to attend, just to make
sure their grades aren't suffering
Stutzman said.
They also pointed out that Greek life

gives students a chance to grow as indi-
viduals, as well as learn how to function
as a team.
"Ifs about friendship. It's about mak-
ing ties and doing things to better your-
self as a person. Greek life is a learning
experience, because you learn a lot
about yourself Rey said.
For interested freshmen, the Greek
organizations will be in room 244 of

Amanda Ross
Spouts Editor
Lucky � that's what I would
call all you incoming fresh-
men. You are entering an
explosive time in ECU athlet-
I thought the sports here at
ECU was outstanding when I
stepped on this campus in
1994, and now that I am a
senior and leaving in
December, I realize that ath-
letics here at ECU is just get-
ting started.
You newcomers will wit-
ness the inaugural season of
the football team in
Conference USA and watch a
team that continues to shock
teams who tend to look past
the Pirates. I can tell you now,
opponents know that ECU is
no easy win; just look at what
happened down in Miami last
season, when the Pirates
dealt the Hurricanes a 31-6
And we all know about
N.C. State. Did they really
think they were going to beat
us? Please. This year we get
to embarrass them on their
home turf, like we did last
season in Charlotte in the
Carolina Panthers Stadium,
50-29. South Carolina
watched us beat them down
in the pouring rain, 23-7 and
that's just a few of the better
teams the Pirates beat.
ECU finished the season at
8-3 and some outstanding
players made names for
Scott Harley, running back,
rewrote the record books at
ECU on his way to stunning
season. Just some of his
highlights were against the
Wolfpack, when he rushed
for 351 yards and three
touchdowns which estab-
lished an NCAA record for
most rushing yards by a
sophomore; he rushed for
1,745 yards for the season
which is an ECU single-sea-
son record and ranked third
in the nation; and his incredi-
ble six touchdowns against
Ohio University which estab-
lished a school record for
most touchdowns in a game.
And, like I said, that was just
a few highlights.
But let's not forget we
have more than just football.
Our basketball teams have
experienced much success in
the past years and continue
to dominate teams in the
The swimming program
has just been outstanding,
with the women capturing
their third straight CAA con-
ference title. The softball
team won a school record 49
games this past year on their
way to a second place finish
in the Big South Conference.
(The softball team is the only
ECU sport in the Big South;
the rest are in the CAA.)
Last season the track team
continued on its winning
ways and some members
went to the NCAA champi-
onships from the men's side.
In a lot of ways I am,
to hate leaving ECU because
the best is yet to come. Wjth
each year that goes by, ECU
athletics continues to rise
and be nationally recognized.
That's why ESPN keeps tele-
vising our football gameSj
So have fun and keep your
calendar open for the games
and continue to look in TEC
for schedules of all the fall
sports when you get back for
the start of your first semes-
Enjoy these next few years
and support your Pirates ,as
they represent ECU in com-

Chancellor reviews success of ECU athletics
Amanda Roes
Sromrs Editor
Since 1987, Chancellor Richard Eakin
has seen the ups and downs of ECU
athletics. In recent years there have
been more ups than downs with all
sports at ECU.
� ' Whether it's from football to track
to softball to basketball, both men's
ehd women's athletics continue to
dominate in every contest.
The dominant, most visual sport at
fcCU is football. The Pirates have con-
tinued to excel with each and every
game and each year are gaining more
" national television exposure on ESPN
: and ESPN2.
"The Pirate football team the past
several years has been very success-
L toil Eakin said. "Tracing back to the
Bill Lewis era (1989-1991) and the East
' Carolina victory over North Carolina
State in the Peach Bowl, in what was
the best year we've had in recent his-
lory through today
That success has resulted in ECU
becoming a new member of
'Conference USA. This season will
" rriark the inaugural season of confer-
ence play. ECU has been an indepen-
dent football team since the end of
the 1976 season when they were a
1 part of the Southern Conference.
"We will be playing in Conference
USA as a full member this year and
1 ?6r the first time that membership car-
; ries with it a number of advantages to
'our university Eakin said. "First of
' all, it makes scheduling a lot eesier.
Secondly, it provides us with an
opportunity year in and year out to
play in bowl games
ECU was extended an invitation to
play in the Liberty Bowl, while it was
II an independent team in 1994 and
to Illinois 0-30. However, the next
ear they came back and avenged
Jfot loss with a 19-13 triumph over
-Stanford in the Liberty Bowl. Last sea-
f�n tney weren't invited. With the
affiliation of Conference USA, they
will have a chance to compete for a
conference championship and the
Liberty Bowl victory year in and year
Eakin believes the head football
coaches at ECU have done an efficient
job building up the program and
bringing in gifted athletes on and off
the field.
"We have had such great success
under coaches Lewis and (Steve)
Logan Eakin said. "They both have
been ideally suited to the times here
at the university. They have brought
to our university athletes who are first
rate citizens of the community, who
have demonstrated that they are good
But football isn't the only thing on
these athletes' minds; academics has
been a major emphasis with the team
and that has been demonstrated with
the team being recognized by the
College Football Association. For the
past several years, ECU has been on
the honor roll of universities in which
70 percent or more of the football
players have graduated.
"That I think is something that's
very important to say about our foot-
ball team
One of the main interests for fans
and players is the renewed rivalry
with N.C. State. Not since 1987 have
these teams played a regular season
game and ECU came out on top 32-14.
Last season these teams battled it out
in the Carolina Panthers Stadium and
ECU again came out on top 50-29.
"I am delighted that the series has
been resumed and, as you know, we
played the first of those resumed
series last year in Charlotte Eakin
said. "That was a wonderful experi-
ence for East Carolina people. We are
anxious to continue that relationship
and hope that of the friends and sup-
porters of East Carolina continue to
exhibit the fine sportsmanship they
have shown in recent years in con-
nection with this contest
An upper deck that will add an
additional 8,000 seats to Dowdy-
Ficklen is currently being constructed
and it is important that all students
attend the games and fill every seat.
"There are two things I would ask
of the new students arriving on cam-
pus this summer and fall and that is
they would come to the football game
early so they can come for the open-
ing festivities and kickoff and also to
stay right on through the game
Eakin said.
The ECU football team has sur-
prised many opponents and come
through late in the game, but the stu-
dents' stands were virtually empty, so
no one was there to cheer the Pirates
on to victory in the last remaining
"Coach Logan is often fond of say-
ing that we are a team that is geared
to winning on the last play of the
game and while that may sound like a
cliche, I have seen it happen so many
times that I have become a believer in
that Eakin said.
Not only has the football endured
great success recently, but so have
several other sports around campus.
The track team had outstanding
spring meets, placing several runners
and relay teams in the number one
position at meets around the country.
The women's swim team won its third
Colonial Athletic Association champi-
onship, while the softball team fin-
ished second in the Big South
Conference. The men's and women's
basketball teams experienced great
success with the Lady Pirates playing
in the CAA championship game.
"We are showing considerable
improvement in these sports that are
typically played in the CAA Eakin
said. "Women's softball was simply
stunning in terms of its success the
way they represented East Carolina.
Our men's and women's basketbail
teams are showing very important
growth and development with the
leadership of coaches (Joe) Dooley
and (Anne) Donovan
The success of women's sports at
ECU continues to excel as many more
of the teams are brining home confer-
ence titles or are closely in the hunt to
bring home the title.
"Women's sports at East Carolina
have prospered in recent years
Eakin said. "It's largely due to bring-
ing together a very fine cadre of
coaches, but ifs also because of the
efforts of the athletic administration.
By that I mean the athletic directors,
both Dave Hart (now at Florida State)
and Mike Hamrick (current AD) have
been dedicated to making improve-
ments in women's athletics
ECU athletics is on the rise and is
only going up year by year. All you

derful time in ECU sports, and you

Intramural sports
offer variety

Going to college is a new experi-
ence for everybody- You get a
chance to get away from your
parents, and you finally get your
Of course we all know how
much freshmen study, but when
you do find some free time to
relax and unwind you can do it at
the new Rec Center, located on
west campus. This brand new-
multi-million dollar complex
offers something for everyone: a
climbing wall, basketbal1 and vol-
leyball courts, an indooroutdoor
pool, a weight room with various
equipment for every fitness level
and much more.
Also done through the Rec
Center is the intramural sport
program, in which a lot of what
they have to offer is played right
in the Rec Center. They also offer
activities that are played on the
intramural fields.
There are so many different
sports for every athlete. One can
step on the gridiron and play flag
football or hoop it up in a three-
on-three basketball game. If
thafs not your speed, they offer
volleyball, singles tennis and
doubles golf (this game allows
you to have a partner).
For the athlete who likes fast
sports, they offer soccer and rac-
quetball. They even offer kickball,
badminton and squash, which is
like racquetball but with four
opposite walls. Finally, they offer
a cross country run and a climb-
ing contest, in which you climb a
20 foot wall specialty built for
climbing. Whatever your interest,
ECU offers many sports to satisfy
If you're just playing the sport
for fun or for serious competi-
tion, the ECU Intramural pro-
gram tries to satisfy both inter-
ests. They offer two skill levels
that an individual can compete
in. They offer gold for the
advanced athlete, and purple for
the person who just wants to
have some fun.
The gold level is more set for
the very competitive person, and
the purple is for the exact oppo-
site. The ECU Intramural pro-
gram also offers a chance to get
together with your friends and
compete in a tournament, or to
compete in a few individual
sports, like the climbing contest
If intramural sports isn't your
tiling, try the Adventures pro-
gram. In this one can spend a
weekend Whitewater rafting or
just relax on a camping trip.
Whatever the trip, one can just
get away from school and all of
your other problems and just
enjoy yourself.
There is a small fee for the
Adventures programs, but,
according to David Gaskins,
director of intramural activities,
the Adventures programs at ECU
offer a lot for a resonable price.
"ECU does not try to make a
profit Gaskins said. "The rates
that they give to the students are
cheaper than the ones if they
were to go out on their own and
take the trip themselves
The program gives one a min-
imum and maximum set of
expenses that a student would
have to pay on the trip.
"Intramural sports provides a
student an opportunity to get out
of the classroom Gaskins said.
In a sense, that is all the
Intramural program and the
Adventures program tries to do
at ECU. They try to give the stu-
dent a chance to play in an orga-
a star
i n g
fees to
join. It gives them a
chance just to get
out of the classroom
and have some fun.
One of the
more popular
sports is flag
played in the
fall semester.
Look forward to the future with
confidence. Enroll in Army ROTC,
an elective that's different from any
other college course. Army ROTC
offers hands-on training. Training
that gives you experience and
helps build confidence, char-
acter and management skills. All
the credentials employers look
for. ROTC is open to freshmen and
sophomores without obligation
and requires about five hours
per week. It will put your life
on a whole new course.

Athletic Director sees bright future for ECU sports
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
R4cently I sat down with Athletic
Director Mike Hamrick, who was
appointed in 1995, and asked him
questions regarding the outlook of
E(U athletics and the success of the
sptorts programs at ECU.

;TEC: ECU Athletics has really been
ori the rise. What is the biggest
change you have seen since your

Warwick: I think probably the level
oflsupport we're receiving. It keeps
increasing each year. The visibility
arttJ respect our program is starting to
reaeive right now. I think that has been
a big change in the short time, to our
softball teams to our track teams to
our basketball teams clear out to our
8-3 football team.
-JEC: How important is it that the
fans, especially the freshmen, fill the
stands for every football game in the
iHamrtck: First of all, we have a
great schedule this year, a great home
schedule. Students have excellent
seats, and it is a very, very exciting
atmosphere around the football
gajne. I'll be quite honest with you,
our student support here has been
very good compared to other athletics
directors at their schools that I talk
with. Everyone is struggling to get
stodents to come to their athletic
events. You know sometimes we don't
have as many here as we would like
to; on given days our students have
been very, very supportive of our foot-
ball program and our athletic program
in whole. I think it's important that stu-
dents are here, because students set
the tone for the atmosphere that is in
the stadium, I mean the enthusiasm
and their showing up and we can't
look across that stadium and see
empty seats and now that we're going
to add an additional 8,000 seats it's
even more important that our stu-
dents fill up some of those seats.
TEC: Talk about the national televi-
sion exposure ECU has gotten the
past few years and the exposure ECU
hopes to get this year.
Hamrick: The Cincinnati game will
be Thursday night (Nov. 13) on ESPN.
It's very important that we have that
stadium full because this football pro-
gram is exposing this entire university
and the students that are here, the
people that work here, the alumni,
and we want the whole nation to see a
full stadium, an enthusiastic stadium.
And, Amanda, the number one reason
why ESPN likes to do our games here
from Thursday night is the enthusi-
asm and a lot of that comes from our
students. I think it is important for our
students to fill that stadium for not
only that game but ail the television
exposure games that we get.
TEC: Talk about Conference USA
and the impact it will have on ECU.
Hamrick: This will be the first time
since 1976 that we'll be playing for a
conference championship. Therefore,
the Memphis, Southern Miss and
Cincinnati games really mean some-
thing. We're playing now for a cham-
pionship and we're playing for an
opportunity to go to the Liberty Bowl,
with an automatic bid into the Liberty
Bowl. We're tied into a bowl game
now, whereas the last 20 years we
have not been, so the conference is
important to us. Every week we get to
look at the conference standings and
see where we are at and who's beat-
ing who and who plays who and I
think it's just going to add an extra
dimension to our football season.
TEC: The women's teams have
experienced a greater amount of suc-
cess recently. Can you talk about the
women's programs and how they are
rounding out the entire success of the
athletics at ECU?
Hamrick: Well, that has been a pri-
ority for me since day one to have a
well-rounded program. Our softball
team won a school record of 49
games. Our women's track team fin-
ished second in the CAA. We have
some outstanding athletes. I think our
4x100 meter relay team is one of the
tops in the country. Michelle Clayton,
one of our throwers, has qualified for
the NCAA meet. Our women's swim
team has won the Colonial the past
two years since I've been here. Our
entire program is getting better and
better. We're not where we want to be
by no means, but we're taking steps to
improve our programs.
TEC: How are some of the smaller
programs at ECU important to the ath-
letic department?
Hamrick: They're important from
the standpoint that we want a well-
rounded program. There's only so
much exposure that your program can
get and, obviously, football is our high
visibility sport. Football is our major
revenue sport and
that gets the expo-
sure, but that
doesn't keep our
other sports from
doing weil. As they
do well, they will
continue to get
Mike Hamrick
TEC: Coaches
are very important
to all sports and we have some great
coaches here. What makes our coach-
ing personnel so special?
Hamrick: The heart and soul of this
program is the coaches. The coaches
are the ones who do the recruiting.
They're with the athletes day to day.
They make the decisions on the field
off the field, on and off the courts and
I think for the most part we have a real
good coaching staff that are commit-
ted and we just need to keep trying to
provide them with resources so they
can be successful.
TEC: Where do you see ECU athlet-
ics over the next few years?
Hamrick: Well, I'd like to think that
from a conference standpoint that all
of our sports are competing year in
and year out for conference champi-
onship and competing for the post
season bids and invitations that go
along with those conference champi-
onships. We can see us in the NCAA
tournaments and have some Ail-
Americans and, at the same time, con-
tinue to have good quality student
athletes in our program. That's where
I'd like to see us and we're making
small steps towards getting there.

Senior Whiter
There's never been a better time to be an
ECU Pirate football fan than this upcoming
fall. This will be the Pirates' first year in
Conference USA, as well as the first year in
a larger Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
Construction has been underway for
months and the completion of the extra
deck is expected by the season's home
opener, according to Assistant Athletic
Director Henry VanSant.
"The stadium is scheduled to be com-
plete prior to the first game, which is
September 13th VanSant said. "On
September 13th we will be opening and
dedicating it the deck before the game ver-
sus Wake Forest
The new addition will hold 8,000 more
fans. The seats are for students and visitors,
as well as reserve seats that will be sold.
There is also going to be an upper con-
course, which will
have rest rooms, a
concession stand
and a souvenir
Now that the
stadium has
increased its total
capacity to 42,000,
it will lure big
name schools to
play here.
Freshmen will
benefit the most
from the new
decks, as each
year's schedule
gets better and
"They are
freshmen going to be part of bigger
crowds, more excitement and the possibili-
ty of bringing bigger teams VanSant said.
"In the next five years we'll have North
Carolina, N.C. State, Duke, Wake Forest,
Miami, Army and so on. Our future sched-
ules are going to be greater than ever
As always, tickets for students are free
with a valid student ID. Students are also
allowed one guest ticket that will cost $12
for the first two games, and $10 for the last
two. Tickets can be picked up a week prior
to the game at either the ticket office in
Mendenhall Student Center or at the
Athletic Ticket Office, located behind the
Students can pick up a copy of the team's
schedule, with the specific games, dates
and times, at the Student Store, UBE and
Mendenhall. Students are also reminded
that they must bring their student ID along
with their tickets in order to get in.
Wake Forest is the home opener this season in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. By then the
8,000 additional seating capacity will be complete.

Student Pirate Club meets fans' needs
Amanda Ross
Spouts Editor
When you come back in August,
there is one club you will want to
make sure you join: the Student
Pirate Club (SPC).
If you've never heard of the
SPC, then you're missing out.
This is the best way to get the lat-
est scoop on ECU athletics and
they offer exclusive privileges to
members only.
Last season members had first
pick on the N.C. State vs. ECU
tickets in Charlotte. While many
students camped out, the SPC
members had their tickets in
This season, since the big
match-up is in Raleigh, ECU stu-
dents are only allotted 1,000 tick-
ets. Mark Wharton, who's in
charge of the SPC, says currently
they are working on a plan to
make sure some SPC members
get first pick again on the tickets.
"We only have 1,000 tickets
for the students for the N.C. State
game on Nov. 22 Wharton said.
"We are trying to develop with
the athletic department to allot x-
amount of tickets, either 50 or
100: and allow Student Pirate
Club members a lottery for
Wharton says the deal isn't
dohp yet, but things are looking
rt's in the working stages but
it's: getting very positive
reviews Wharton said.
Ppr those lucky enough to
have tickets ahead of time, a bus
trip is in the works for the ticket
holders to get to Raleigh.
As was the case last season,
all SPC members will get home
football and basketball tickets
before the start of each season in
one bulk, unlike non-members,
who must go on a game-by-
game basis throughout the sea-
During basketball season, the
SPC has an annual bus trip to

men's team play and it looks iike
this season the trip will be to
watch the Monarchs of Old
Dominion. In the past it has been
Last season the SPC had its
highest number of members with
over 300. Wharton believes this
season could be even better.
"We're looking for '97 to be a
very good year just because of
the excitement with the football
schedule and the general excite-
ment within the town of
Greenville and the university
Wharton said.
Another project currently
being worked on is having a
cookout for members before the
Southern Mississippi game.
"We are probably, before the
Southern Miss game, going to
have a cook-out for all members
at Bunting Field, which would be

Restaurant Wharton said. "We
would try to do similar with the
basketball and baseball games
For those who like to take

Now with ali good things
there is a cost involved, but you
pay it once a year and your privi-
leges run throughout the entire
school year. It's just 25 dollars
and for such a small price, you
get an abundance of privileges.
In fact, the money you put forth
is matched and you actually are a
75 dollar member for one-third of
the price. And you build up
points during your college years
if you continue through until you
