As the summer drags on, the House and Senate have not been able to come to
jn agreement on revenue availability, making this session the second longest
and the most expensive in N.C state history- and delaying decisions on tuition
increases for the I'NC-system.
Conferees have been chosen and discussions on the education system have
just begun to take place.
The budget increases and reductions will affect the UNC-School System,
including ECU.
In the House budget there has been a proposal made to increase in-state
tuition by three percent. ()ut-of-state tuition would not be affected by this
increase.
"The General Administration, the Hoard of Governors and the administra-
tion of this university are all committed to holding dow n tuition as much as pos-
sible said Richard Eakin, Chancellor of ECU. Eakin added that. "It is stated in
the constitution of our states that higher education should be provided at the
most practical ot costs.
The Student Government Association (SGA) has not yet declared where
thev stand in terms of a possible tuition increase. At this time the SGA is still
trying to establish where they sit with it.
"Students have an inordinate amount of expenses being in college.
dditional expenses do nothing to enhance the education process said SGA
Vice 'resident. Sean Mcmanus.
"Our effort is to see no tuition increase for anyone- period said Dr. Emmett
Floyd, School of Education.
A fact that is not well known to students in the UNC system is that North
(Carolina has one of lowest prices of tuition, if not the lowest.
There are a number of positive aspects to be brought to ECU in terms of the
budget. ECU Administration has planned several capital projects scheduled to
take place in the coming years.
"In term- of the General ssembh there are three projects that are before
them for consideration said F.akin.
The first project, which is already underway,
is the completion of the expansion of Dowdy-
Ficklen Stadium. This is a $7 million project to
add 8,000 seats to the stadium, bringing seating
capacity to 43,000.
The second project is a 52 million continua-
tion of the planning department in the Science
and Technology building.
The third project in front of the General
.Assembly is a $500,000 project to explore the
capability of a third floor for the Rivers Building.
"for a long time it has been said that was a
part of the original plan said Eakin.
There are more projects the university is plan-
ning that have not been brought before the
General Assembly.
There has been a proposal brought in front ot
the Board of Trustees to expand and improve the Student Health Services. I his
expansion should make Student Health Services more functional.

Since June 9th, the International Human
Performance Center (IHPC), located in the
Ward building on ECU's campus, has been
testing, evaluating, and informing Olympic
athletes and hopefuls from around the world.
Although the center could essentially be help-
ful toanv athlete, so far all of the athletes have
been solely runners in track events.
'The purpose of the center is to bring ath-
letes from developing countries to the facility,
and put them through a series of tests in order
to test different aspects of how they run. how
economical thev are. how well they can toler-
ate certain conditions said (Catherine
Stephens, an intern at the IHPC, "and then
we give them specific suggestions on how they
can take that information and improve
The IHPC's program focuses more on the
science behind the sport than the actual ath-
letic technique.
"Could we improve a basketball players
free throw? No. But we can tell him or her
how to improve their aerobic ability, how to
improve their power output and their body
composition said Stephens.
Dr. l.erov T Walker, a former Olympic
track coach and former chairman of the I S.
Olympic Committee, was the man who found-
ed the only international human performance
center in the world, right here in Greenville.
"He is a world renowned coach, and he has
coached more medal winning Olympic ath-
letes than any other said Stephens. "It was
his dream to start a facility like this.
Dr. Walker had always had the idea of the
IHPC in mind but had never followed through
until just recently
The idea behind the center is to be able to
prov ide state-of-the-art technology and up-to-
date methods of analysis that can bring an ath-
lete of a less developed country to the same
level as the wealthier countries.
The center is brand new and has been in
operation for the first time this summer. The
facility was proposed last fall, and then Dr.
Walker and his associates went to Caneun to
propose it to the Association oi National
(Mympic (lommittees. The rest is history.
So far the center has had visitors come
from such countries as the Congo. Cameroon.
Ghana, the Ivory Coast, Kenya, Argentina, the
Virgin Islands and Aruba.
Olympic coaches come to the center as
well, and even administrators of each coun-
try's Olympic teams are admitted to come and
observe. So far approximately 30 athletes have
visited the IHPC. The current group is from
Aruba.
"The main goal, really, is to keep the
coaches involved, because the coaches are an
integral part of the whole training process and
thev are the ones that make the all the deci-
sions on what the athlete is going to do said
Stephens. "They come along with the ath-
letes, some of them actually go through the
tests themselves, and then we go over all the
results with them
Each group of athletes spend a rota! of two
weeks at the center, one week involves physi-
cal testing and the other incorporates the
learning seminars.
One day of testing for an athlete can be
grueling. They start at 6:30 AM and can go
until 4:00 or 5:00 in the afternoon. Some tests
include running in hot and humid conditions.
or running at maximum speeds, while other
tests analyze bio-mechanics, body composi-
tion, power output and muscle fiber type.
The seminars go over athletic issues such
as sports psychology, nutrition and injurv pre-
vention.
The intent is that the coaches take this
knowledge home to their other athletes and
distribute and apply that knowledge.
Stephens expressed that the center hopes
that they will be able to reevaluatc the ath-
letes in the fall.
Ms. Stephens has had the pleasure ro see
mans Orvmpic athletes come and go.

'Another proposal being brought in
front of the Board of Trustees is to
expand the dining facilities on west cam-
is said Eakin.
The dining facility would be located
wherethe amphitheater now sits
between Clement Hall and Fletcher
Hall.
A project that is being planned at this
time is thc complete renovation of jarvis
Residence Hall in 1998.
This will preserve the building as
you see it today and will allow us to have
central air conditioning said Eakin.
The tile roof on Jarvis will also be
restored, giving the building a modern
and contemporary look.
A project that is already in progress
behind the Allied Health Sciences
Building, the intramural fields are being
expanded and further developed said
Eakin.
"After thc completion of the intra-
mural fields, we will construct a large
parking lot on the north side of the sta-
dium said Eakin.
Thc parking lot will have dual usage.
On game days the lot will be used for
game parking, but during the week the
lot will be used for student parking.
Parking classification of the lot is
unknown at this time.
"We have long term plans to make the
shuttle service even better than it is
today said Eakin.
In addition to all the improvements
on campus there is a proposal for a one
percent reduction for all academic sup-
port areas on campus.
Chancellor Eakin is extremely opti-
mistic about thc University receiving the
potential $3.1 million in funding.
"Typically anything that is in both
versions of the bill will find itself in the
final version said Eakin.

Spangler offered advice to
Broad, his successor, encouraging
her W woift toward bettering the
entire state through her new posi-

eral assembly acts as our bankers,
and that without a good economy
they cannot act favorably towards
the UNC system;
"(She should hope for a good
economy in North Carolina

Carolina's time at bat
Spangler said he did not antici-
pate significant changes in the sys-
tem after Broad takes over.
"Ms. Broad has sensitivities

importance of students and faculty.

the job in the mid 1980's he did not
have prior qualifications which
specifically suited him for the posi-
tion.

"unique experience he said he is
looking forward to retirement.
While Spangler docs not have defi-
nite plans yet, he knows he will
always remember his position as
UNC-system president as worth-
while and "the best job in North
Carolina
"It's really been fun. You know

14 mph treadrhitl, used for the max-
imum speed running test, has since
been replaced by a Track Master

Another certain athlete amazed
her as well.
"There was one girt that came
through the last time. She was 14
years old and she could already run
as fast as the people who ran in the �
finals in her event at the Olympics
Stephens also commented on
what it was like to work with people
from other countries.
"So far the athletes have been
English speaking, some of them
spoke English better than others
However there were some lan-
guage barriers when it came down to
explaining proper procedures of cer-
tain tests.
"I remember spending 30 to 45
minutes on a test that would nor-
mally only take a couple of minutes,
because the procedure was hard to
communicate sometimes said
Stephens. "But it was a lot of fun
because it gave me a chance to actu-
ally talk to the people and get to
know them better
Should there be athletes in the
future who do not speak English,
there are plans to have translators
available.
The university is providing a
number of services for the athletes
to make them feel more at home.
"They live over in Umstead, and
it's almost like a hotel said
Stephens. "Someone makes up
their beds every day and brings
them new towels, and they have a
little goody bag for them with sham-
poo and toothpaste, etc
They are also provided meals at
Todd Dining Hall and a personal
shuttle bus takes them from place to
place.
As for activities for the athletes,
there are a few activities planned for
them, and of course they are allowed
to go out after a hard days work.
The group from Arulia has been
here for the last week, and has had
the pleasure of visiting both
Wilmington and Busch Gardens to
pass the extra time away during the
past weekend.
While in Wilmington, thc two
atlilc: competed in a � r j and
placed 6th and 7th out ot �M partic-
ipants.
The visitors from Aruba are
delighted to be able to participate in
the program, and they arc enjoying
their stay so far.
"You people have something in
your smile, the way you are treating
us, and they told me, 'it's the people
of the south said Peter Simon an
percentage point higher, this in
turn only allowed for a two-tenths
percent raise increase for continu-
ing professors.
"Economy wide, wages have
increased modestly but thc general
picture for faculty is not very good,
both in relative terms compared to
other professions and just looking at
today's data Dr. Bell said.
The AAUP reported that the
average salary of a professor at East
Carolina was $62,000. This
includes thc medical school, which
is only a small percentage of the fac-
ulty. The average salary for the
medical school is 1191,405. This is
in comparison with the School of
Arts and Sciences whose average
salary is $44,604. The range in
salary is at a high with The School
of Business, whose departmental
salary is $60,065, and the low with
Health Science Library at $26,977.
"Averages are dangerous because
they falsify information and make it
appear that the professors of any
three ranks make a higher saiary
than they really do. The statistics
can be falsely portrayed if the
School of Business and Medicine is
averaged in. If you want to get a
clearer picture of average salaries,
keep the different schools separate.
Try to avoid a false picture said Dr.
Stephen Dock, an associate profes-
sor of foreign languages.
Differences in salaries were
found to be due to the status of the
college, location, department and
gender. Private comprehensive uni-
versities earned on average $4,000
more than public comprehensive
universities such as East Carolina.
Along with the discrepancies in
salary between departmental aver-
ages, there is also a 5.5 percent pay
gap between men and women at
the full-professor level.
"Small but persistent differ-
ences in male and female pay with-
in rank Dr. Bell wrote in Academe.
Women professors at ECU are
$2,815 below thc faculty salary
average of $59,865.

When asked about the language
barriers, he said there weren't too
many problems with communica-
tion, just a few word misunderstand-
ings here and there. He noted that
their stay so far has already polished
up their English.
Simon is eager to implement
�Aha he has learned and will learn
from the program.
"The test results from the ath-
letes gives us an' idea of what pro-
gram we should use for them
Simon explained. "Thc plan is to
come back in November to sec the
improvement
Simon currently trains many ath-
letes in Aruba, starting from ages 7
I on up. Richard Rodriguez and Alvin
Ras, the two athletes currently in
attendance, will start training with
him when they return to Aruba.
"These two arc the best athletes
in Aruba said Simon.
Both athletes have run in races
around the world, including the
Boston Marathon, the Washington
Marathon and the South American
championship races.
Simon explained why he actually
participated in the tests himself.
"I take everything I leam here
and bring it to the people of Aruba.
I have the experience, so I can tell
them and I can show them, With
. this, I can help all these athletes
make their dreams come true
Although Simon will not have all
the equipment that is provided at
the IHPC, he explained that more
traditional methods can be substi-
tuted for the technology used here,
such as measuring heart rates with a
stop watch as opposed to EKG's, or
measuring body composition with
skin folds measurements as opposed
to underwater weighing.
But for Aruba's best athletes,
such as Rodriguez and Ras, their
training is considered more serious-
ly-
"If you see how many people arc
working here, how much time it
takes for the athletes, and I say; OK,
am I going to be able to do all of this
in Aruba for Alvin Ras? The best
thing to do for the top athletesl is
to pay for the tickets for them to
come all the way to the USA
We should look for these up and
coming athletes in the Olympics at
Sidney, in the year 2000.
As for the future of the IHPC.
they arc looking at expansion of
their facilities.

A recent report from the American Association of University Professors shows that facul-
ty members at ECU are being paid below the AAUP's average. While it's good to be con-
cerned about faculty wages, we need to look at wages for graduate teaching assistants as
well. Some GTA's make about one-tenth of the AAUP's $44,000 average for an ECU pro-
fessor in the college of Arts and Sciences.
Not only are GTA's a cheap form of labor for the departments on campus, they allow
departments flexibility, they allow faculty to teach courses they really want to teach and
they allow faculty members to have time and assistance for research. GTA's, in many
departments, teach most of the entry-level classes. Some students' only contact with a
department is through the GTA employed to teach them.
Graduate students, for the most part, have to work their way through without help
from Mom and Dad or financial aid loans - loans some don't want to take because of the
ten years of loan payback they face for undergraduate studies.
TECs own editorial board has four members who are graduate students and graduate
assistants, forced to work as a GA and for TEC, ail the while carrying a full load of class-
es and struggling to make ends meet.
Because the salary for an assistantship is low, GTA's often find themselves without
some luxuries that are taken for granted, luxuries they could get if they chose not to be
in graduate school - like health insurance, retirement benefits and the ability to actually
save money. A good chunk of their money goes right back from where it came: the uni-
versity. Many graduate students have had to quit pursuing their degree to get a job with
benefits so they can support the family they started. While on-campus health facilities
are available to a GTA, if an ailment requires off-campus treatment, they are put into a
financial bind.
Graduate assistants, though part-time, are university employees, representatives of the
university. On average, a GTA is paid for working 20 hours a week, even though much
more than 20 hours may go into the job.
Having a graduate assistantship, though, means more than a way to finance graduate
school. It is a way for graduate students to make themselves marketable and to gain
invaluable experience, such as teaching a class or editing a journal. The low salary and
absence of benefits, however, makes it impossible for some to afford working for experi-
ence rather than for benefits. Experience can be more valuable than benefits and money,
Jbut experience doesn't pay fOr health care costs, required texts or tuition. GTA's deserve
to be rewarded in some way for a job well done for the department they represent and
the university they attend.

ly. She gave me such a look of sym-
pathy that I hurriedly paid, grabbed
my backpack and fled to a solitary
location. There I extracted the book
and looked at it. A previous price tag
(which someone had tried unsuc-
cessfully to blacken out with a mark-
er) proclaimed the price as $42.25.
Huh? I was confused. It seemed
that I had just paid more for my used
book than the person who had
bought it before me.
Every semester hundreds of stu-
dents search UBE and our own stu-
dent store for the best value in used
books. We have to deal with the fact
that professors change the textbooks
frequently, although the course
numbers and names stay the same.
I'm sure there is a ready explanation
for this practice. So, very frequently,
the 'free book' that your good friend
passes on to you becomes pretty
much useless.
Another rip off (and folks - this is
only my opinion) are lab books!
They cost anywhere from $25 to $40
and are non-refundable and non-
resaleable. Once you buy a lab hook,
you're stuck with it. How many of
these things do we actually use?
Personally speaking, I've had three
courses requiring a lab book and not
once has ic been absolutely impera-
tive to use any one of them. Please
remember we're students. If it's
left up to us to complete our lab
books, you know it's not going to
happen if a grade is not involved.
That's plain old common sense.
Anyway, 1 went to see (Catherine
Bumey, textbook manager for ECU's
student store. She explained the
long procedures that are involved in
textbook pricing. For example, used
books are sold at half the current
new book price issued by the pub-
lishers. The key phrase here is the
"publisher's list She circulates a
"wanted list" among six different
companies for used books as well.
New books are bought only when
these companies fail to come
through with used ones. Markups
for some used books can reach as
high as 33 in accordance with the
publishers price list, and a new book
usually has a flat markup rate of 25.
Burrtey emphasized that UBE is a
privately owned book store whereas
the university student store is prac-
tically self-generating. The student
store also gives money back to the
students in the form of scholarships.
Now that you have all of this
information, here is another piece of
advice: sell your books as soon as it
is feasible. Last semester, a friend of
mine sold her Comm. Law book for
540.00 at UBE on the morning of our
final exams. After the exam, I
rushed to UBE where they offered
me $16.00 for the same book.
Apparently they were now over-
stocked. So, know the system-
play to win.

Big Brother may be reading your email
The Open Records
Act was supposed to
allow the public to
have access to
governmental
information .not
designed for the
university to have
access to student
e-mail.
Imagine you sent mail from your
workplace to a good friend com-
plaining about your boss. Imagine
your boss got a hold of said letter,
opened it and read your mail. Wait
just a second, opening mail not
addressed to you is in violation of
federal law. What if that mail was
e-mail, what then?
The Electronic Communication
Privacy Act, passed by Congress in
1986, basically outlaws the inter-
ception or disclosure of electronic
mail by anyone not a party to the
communication. Well, no problem
you say. I sent the mail to my
friend, my boss is not part of the
communication. How wrong you
would be.
The law allows for the owner of
a system, the boss, to inspect mail
as a "necessary incident to the ren-
dition nf his service to the prnrec-
tion of the rights or property of the
provider of that service In basic
language the law translates to sys-
tems administrators being allowed
to inspect the contents of messages
if it is a necessary part of their job.
Unless your employer gives you
privacy rights, you have none.
Michael Smythe learned this lesson
the hard way. Smythe had a few
choice words to say about company
managers. He typed a message and
sent his mail to his boss via elec-
tronic mail. The e-mail was inter-
cepted by his employer, Pillsbury.
Even though Pillsbury had told
employees e-mail was private,
Smythe was fired. Smythe brought
suit and the case was dismissed
without a trial.
Vies, business's have the right to
make sure employees are not send-
ing Out corporate secrets. However,
the rights of the business to protect
corporate assets should not infringe
upon the rights of the individual.
Perhaps you think Big Brother
only exists in a book. Perhaps you
are wrong. Take Oklahoma State
University for an example. OSU
reserves the right "to inspect elec-
tronic mail usage by any person at
any time without prior notice as
deemed necessary to protect busi-
ness-related concerns of the
University to the full extent not
expressly prohibited by applicable
statutes The policy simply means
OSU considers e-mail to be public
records. The bending and twisting
that required in rhis srance srems
from Oklahoma's Open Records Act
(ORA).
The ORA was designed to make
state official's records impossible to
hide from the public. The law was
designed to he an electronic version
of the Freedom of Information Act.
The ORA was supposed to allow
the public to hove access to govern-
mental information. The law was
not designed for the government,
i.e. the university, to have access to
student e-mail. OSU has contorted
and mangled the law to fit their
own agenda.
E-mail should not be held differ-
ent from regular mail. E-mail
should be treated the same as regu-
lar mail handled by the United
States Postal Service. Only under
court order should e-mail become
opened.
With more and more people pre-
ferring the use of electronic mail in
place of the postal service, the
rights of the individual must be pro-
tected. Remember, privacy rights
are not taken away in a short period
of time. Rather the rights are taken
away at a snail's pace, with each
movement condemning us.

GTA's ask ECU: Show me the money
How is this
university going to
grow and gain a
better reputation
unless it prides
itself on bringing
the best students
and graduate
teachers to
Greenville?
There's some truth to the old adage,
"Do unto others as you'd have them
do unto you Well, in the case of
East Carolina University's treatment
of graduate teacher assistants, it
seems the university must want to
be treated rather poorly.
I mean, everyone knows that col-
lege is a business; you pay upwards
of S5.000 dollars a year for four years
to get a diploma, which helps insure
your chance of getting a good paying
job after graduation. You pay your
money. You go to class. Hopefully,
you study and learn.
Some of us even have ambitions
that goes beyond the classroom.
Perhaps you study material not
required by classes to further your
mind: Baudrillard, Poincare, or
Sophocles. Maybe you subscribe to
the Wall Street Journal, Time,
National Geographic or The New
Yorker. Maybe you've done an
internship or worked through coop-
erative education.
The point being, you give of
yourself to this school, this institu-
tion and this fine university. You are
dedicated to the improvement of
your understanding of the world you
live in, ;� id certainly you'd like to
think that the university is reciprocal
in this relationship. No doubt ECU
gives you something back: chiefly
knowledge, confidence, maturation.
adulthood and a finer tuned mind to
understand and enrich life.
Perhaps I am being a hit idealis-
tic, but I believe these are some of
the principles upon which this great
university was founded.
Why is it then that the university
is so Spartan with its allocation of
salary and benefits for the GTAs and
professors in general? I don't want to
make this sound negative but come
on, $2,400 a semester with no med-
ical, dental or insurance benefits.
That amounts to about $1.80hour if
I put in the needed forty hours a
week to best serve the students I'd
be teaching.
When the administration is this
cheap with its teachers, how is it
going to attract better graduate stu-
dents and better professors? In
essence, how is this university going
to grow and gain a better reputation
in the highly competitive intercolle-
giate system that is America unless it
prides itself on bringing the best stu-
dents and graduate teachers to
Greenville?
My father graduated from ECU,
played football for the Pirates back
in the early sixties. My dedication is
unwavering, but this fall as an ECU
alumni and graduate student pon-
dering whether I want to teach two
Freshman comp courses for the mea-
ger salary they offer, I have to ask,
"What is East Carolina University-
doing for me?"
I'd like to think thut the adminis-
ttation has enough foresight and
pride to help thost hat are helping
them, lb allocate a better balance of
pay and benefits for its employees
can not help but profit the universi-
ty in the long run.
Straight up, I love this school, the
students, the prof's and the admin-
istration. I consider them a part of
my family, but with the truly cheap
treatment I would get as a GTA I
am beginning to feel more like the
Abel of the brothers Cain and Abel.

South Carolina has always been a substantial phcc 'or an up and coming band to get
their start, ears ago, Spartansburg, 9C gave the .nusk world the Marshall Tucker
Band, and in recent years, bands like Hootk & the Blowfish, Cravin' Melon and
Edwin McCain have all helped put South Carolina on the musical map. But don't look
for the Headnecks to join this group of bands from down South that have "made it
In fact, if you're smart, you won't really look for the Headnecks at all.
The band's independent release, Pktonkm Chickenshact, starts out with a seeming-
ly promising song. "Cornbrcad, Rolls, or Mixed" starts off with an intro slightly remi-
niscent of Quiet Riot's "Bang Your Head but soon gets into a catchy little guitar
groove that rocks. Unfortunately, the words start soon after that and take the
Headnecks to new lows in music. The opening line of the song goes, "Rice and gravy,
mashed potatoes, baby limes, sliced tomatoes, macaroni, sweet peas, candied yams,
big ol' beets All the verses of the song are nothing more than menu items shout-
ed out in rhythm to the musk. The chorus isn't much better as it simply celebrates
country food "served by southern chicks Not exactly deep, but it does provide a
good laugh die first few times you listen to it.
"SRS starts out with heavily distorted bass and guitar laying down the foundation
for a punk, funk mix that fortunately drowns out most of the words. The Words arc
there, just not easily understandable, and after the first song I'm not sure if anyone
would even want to try and figure them out. Of course, the Headnecks can't leave a
good thing alone, and shortly into the song there's a break that is dominated by a dis-
torted bass sound reminiscent of Neil Vbung's "Hey Hey, My My Of course, Neil did
it much better.
By far the best song on the CD is also the most different song on the CD. The only
reason Pkttommn Chickenskack didn't get a rating of I, is the hillbilry-rsh "Rres of Hell"
Start from the textbook of country music "Rres of Hell" puts you right in the mid-
die of the Dubs Of Hansard listening to someone play the Boar's Nest bar. "Fires of
Hell" has a nearly empty whiskey bottle, and a drunk narrator who has nothing left
but to get drunker and go to hell. This is what country musk was meant to be.
From here out the CD hits rock bottom and then sinks lower. Eight songs go by
without a single redeeming factor. By about the fifth song, I realized the Headnecks
are about ten years too late for their calling. If they had released the same CD ten
years ago, with big hair and leather, they would have been sucked right into the glam
rock fad that so plagued musk in the late 80'$. But, by now every one has come to
their senses and realized that most the musk of that time was pure crap, and the
Headnecks are out of luck. But they also shouldn't give up hope. After ail, disco came
back, so anything is possible.
Space, the final frontier. These are the ventures of the industry known as
Hollywood, its ongoing mission to seek out new marketable formulas and
concepts, to boldly make as much money as possible.
This seems to be the newest philosophy in Tinseltown. Science fiction
has been hot for the past few years and the recent successes of such block-
buster films as Independence Day, Star Trek: First Contact and Men in Black are
solid proof that the trend will not soon fade. Moviegoers have been bom-
barded with so many big-budget space flicks lately that even the most die-
hard sci-fi fan is probably getting a little weary. Still to come, Starship
Troopers, an X-Files feature film, another Star Tret adventure and the long-
awaited Star Wars prequels.
Admittedly, many of the newest entries into the sci-fi genre have been
impressive and fun. But none have been particularly engaging on the intel-
lectual or philosophical level-until now.
Contact, the latest film by Academy Award winning director Robert
Zemcckis, is being marketed as a simple movie about earth making its first
contact with extraterrestrial life. Judging from the trailers, one would
expect something in the vein of The Arrival, a very forgettable Charlie
Sheen flick concerning an alien signal that reaches earth from the outer
limits of space. While the bask premise for Contact may be similar to The
Arrival, Contort has several positive elements working in its favor.
First, Contact is based on Carl Sagan's popular novel of the same name,
and, as thousands and thousands of readers would testify, Sagan is not a
brainless author of trash. Next, Zemeckis has packed his film with a won-
derful cast that is fed by the always commanding Jodie Foster. Finally, and
most importantly, Sagan's idea intelligently translates to film thanks large-
ly to a focused script (written by Michael Goldenbcrg) that dares to place
human drama over alien extravaganza. The result is the most mature and
sophisticated mainstream film released so far this summer.
Without delving too deeply into the plot, I'll give the basic highlights.
Jodfe Foster plays an energetic scientist who, despite critkisms from her
colleagues, decidedly dedicates her professional and personal life to look-
ing from extraterrestrial life. She joins a scientific team whose sole func-
tion is to listen to all the excitement going on in space. Of course, Foster
discovers an alien signal, the government gets involved, the media spread
the word and the world goes wild with excitement and fear. What follows
is a struggling race to decipher the signal and figure out its intentions.
Fans more accustomed to the frantic action in sci-fi films like
Independence Day may be disappointed here. Contact is deliberately paced
with only fleeting moments of action. Still, the story's central theme of
human quest for universal truths is so relevant and applicable to contem-
porary human consciousness that one can't help but be completely drawn
into che search.
As Foster and company progressively get closer to understanding the
signal's meaning, philosophical and religious questions abound. Matthew
McCcnaughey, who turns in a fine performance despite being miscast,
serves as the proponent for faith over science. This goes in direct contrast
with Foster's stance that science has dispelled a need for God.
opposing beliefs serve as the film's main conflict and thrusting force
also fits neatly into the current alien phenomena. In a world where God no
longer exists, where else can we look for meaning than to the stars?
Don't worry, though. Contact is not a two-and-half-hour lecture
human philosophy. It is a indeed every bit as entertaining and fun as
summer roller coaster currently playing. Zemcckis takes full advantage of
sight and sound, making this a theatrical experience, something that will
be diminished on video. The Carolina East theater in town finally has
fully functional DTS sound system, and Contact clearly illustrates the dif-
ference a sophisticated sound system can make (particularly in the hyp-
notic opening sequence).
The film only slips at sporadic points. Forced efforts at developing a
love interest between Foster and McConaughey, admittedly, aren't com-
pletely effective, and McConaughey's character, who serves as a spiritual
adviser for the I S. President, should be played by an older actor who com
mands more respect. But these minor faults are easily overlooked once the
awe-inspiring mystery of the unknown takes over.
Ciiuuiii thrives on ilic unknown. No clear answers are given, no definite
resolutions arc determined. In many ways, the film concludes with
questions than it began with. This is an honest and serious attempt to t
into modern society's anxiety about either being or not being alone in t'
infinite universe.
Skeptics may mock any effort to seriously address the possibility
extraterresrrial life. Belkvcrs may want the issue to be more seriously dealt
with. And simple fans of science fiction may just want more fiction in their
science. Whatever criticisms Contact gets dealt, credit must be given to
Zemeckis and company for during to touch the unknown without destroy-
ing the mystery that keeps the wodd looking into the night sky and flock-
ing to the theaters.

Bad Livers Cookin'
at Rhythm Alley
JENNIFER LEOOETT
�TAFP WHITE
As a kid, just getting home from a hard day of elementary school, watching clastic TV
reruns was part of my dairy routine. Happy Dap, Good Tunes, and Barmy Mdkr were
some of the best just to name a few. But my all time favorite was The Andy Griffith Shorn,
especially the episodes with the interesting jug band musk of the Darling family They
were their own Hee Ham.
Maybe this is why I can't help stomping my foot to some good old fashioned blue-
grass. It would definitely explain why the Bad Livers show at Rhythm Alley in Durham
was all that and a jug of moonshine.
With Danny Barnes on banjo and guitar, Mark Rubin on bass and tuba of all things,
and Bob Grant playing guitar and mandolin with incredible genius I have never seen
before. Bad Livers sounded like the Darlings on speed. This Austin based band takes
the authenticity of traditional bluegrass and blends it with influences from punk to
funk, giving it a goofy, punkabilly sound.
Bad Livers started off their first ten song set with goofy tunes "Six Feet Down
"Chkken Pfc" and the fierce "I Know We Ain't Married but I Love You Still Leading
off "Shufflin' to Memphis" and the second set with a ready fellas? Danny Barnes
made the audience feel like they were at a genuine hoedown.
The last part of the evening was geared more toward their new album with the
songs "My Old Man and "Falling Down the Stairs (With a Pistol in My Hand) It
was fierce. It was fun. I have never heard a tuba sound so good.
The eclectic mixture of the crowd at Rhythm Alley, (70 or so punk guys, hippies,
old bluegrass dudes, metal chics, professor types), was an atmosphere boost to the
newly opened club that will be the host to other blues and insurgent country acts.
Seeing three twentysomething guys wearing Air Jordans, playing experimental blue-
grass and promoting their new album Hogs on the Highttay was a Her Hast experience in
the greatest sense of nostalgia.

probably the best version. The
Heartbreakers sound wasn't quite as
harsh as The Dead Boys, who sound
almost heavy metal on some songs.
Their sound was rooted in the Rolling
Stones and '50s and '60s R&B. The
Heartbreakers wrote rock and roil
anthems. Most of their songs featured
catchy melodies and even catchier
choruses. Just as often as their songs
were about dependency on drugs and
excessive lives. The Heartbreakers'
songs were about - what else -
women.
There's a lot of love on l-A.M.F.
You get "1 Wanna Be l.oved "Pirate
Love "I Love You and their version
of "Do You Love Me?" Barry Gordy,
who wrote "Do You Love Me?
should have thought about signing
The Heartbreakers to Motown or at
least as songwriters. They were the
druggie version of
HoliandDoierHolland. On "I
Wanna Be Loved Thunders sings in
a drunken slur, do what I'm gonna
sayI'm so crazy 'bout you I don't
wanna play, 1 wanna be loved by you
It would have been a hit for Marvin
Gaye.
The Heartbreakers had their punk
anthem, too. "Born to Lose" lives
down the street from The Dead Boys'
"Sonic Reducer "Living in a jungle,
it ain't so hard but living in a city, it'll
eat out your heart I think I'll just
stay in the country forever.
Johnny Thunders and The
Heartbreakers left more than just the
track marks on the arms, they left a
mark on rock and roll. The Devil
Dogs, The Humpers, The
Candysnatchers and millions of lesser
bands have taken their cue from the
band. The current "alternative coun-
try" movement also owes much to
The Heartbreakers.
The Replacements, I think, are
one of the few bands who equaled
and even topped The Heartbreakers
in spirit, musically and in their rela-
tionship with illegal substances. The
Replacements even did a song in the
early '80s about Johnny Thunders
(and probably a lot about themselves
also) called "Johnny's Gonna Die
The song detailed Thunders' excess-
es in his music and his life. The cho-
rus offered a taunting "Na Nanna Na
Na The Replacements' prediction
came true in 1991. Johnny Thunders
died in New Orleans hotel room after
combining a lethal mixture of
methadone and alcohol. Nolan died a
vear later.

The East Carolinian
Aqua range offers Coaching search almost over
unique layout
Kalvin kelley
STAFF WRITER
Have you been running out of things to do this summer, or are summer class-
es and working getting a little frustrating? Why not take out some of your
frustrations on some golf balls?
Grab your golf clubs and take the short trip down Greenville Blvd. N.E.
to the Big Splash Aqua Driving Range.
Owner Steve Curtis says that Big Splash is a unique driving range, unlike
the others around the area.
"The unique thing about Big Splash is that you hit the balls into the
water Curtis said.

SPORTS F.IHTOR
The head coaching job of the Pirate basebail team, vacated by Gary
Overton last month, could be filled very shortly.
That is the word from Henry VanSant, assistant athletic director. The
athletic department is keeping a tight lip on the interviewing process, but
TEC did find out that the final decision has boiled down to four possible
candidates.
Those four arc Billy Best, Mike Fox, Keith LeClair and Joe McFarland.
VanSant couldn't comment on any of the candidates, but said he hoped an
announcement would be made later this week.
"We have interviewed candidates for the job and we plan to make an
announcement on Sunday the 20th VanSant said.
Best is a former Pirate-as a player and an assistant coach and is cur-
rently an assistant with N.C. State. Best was the head coach at Elon
College for three seasons, compiling an 82-45 record, before taking the
position with State. During the '94 and '95 seasons, Best led his teams to
the NCAA Division II tournament, and all three teams finished in the
national rankings u, the Division II polls.
At the Big Splash driving range, it's okay to get your balls wet. There are islands
located in the lake that can be used es targets tor golfers.
PHOTO BY JONATHAN SftiEN
For those of you who swing the club pretty well, or for the beginners, the
aqua range comes equipped with five yardage islands. The islands are placed
in the water from 95 yards to 245 yards.
Curtis seems to have quite a popular place for students and people in the
community.
"I've been in business for seven years Curtis said.
With the reasonable prices on the buckets of balls, it's easy to see why
Curtis has been in business this long. A small bucket of balls costs just $1.75,
a medium is S3.75, and the large bucket is $8.50.
If you're on a tight schedule there are still plenty of times to head out to
Big Splash during the day. The summer operation hours are from 10 a.m. to
9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If
you want to chip on the chipping green you must be there a little earty
because the greens close 30 minutes before closing time.
Curtis said he enjoys hiring ECU students.
"Although I'm not hiring staff people right now, I do, however, hire ECU
students when jobs are available Curtis said.
Big Splash caters to every golfer, whether they are new to the sport or play
often. They have an artificial turf pad or real grass from which you can tee
off. It is a popular driving range among all ages, and with the inexpensive
costs, it's an affordable way to get in some good practice.
So grab your golf clubs or borrow some friends' clubs, and if you still don't
have any you can check them out at the Student Recreation Center. Curtis
said if anyone has any questions about aqua golf to call him, or any of the staff
members, at 758-1341.

For the past 15 years, Fox has held the helm at Division HI North
Carolina Wesleyan in Rocky Mount. A Chapel Hill graduate, he took the
Wesleyan job after ECU graduate Tony Guzzo vacated the job and left for
Virginia Commonwealth. (Guzzo is now head coach at ODU.) Fox has won
the Division III NCAA championship once with the Battling Bishops and
has led rhc team to the World Series.
Prese tly, LeClair is the head coach at Western Carolina, where he has
posted a 228-135-2 record, earning Southern Conference Coach of the
Year Honors in '92, '94 and '97. LeClair played at Western Carolina as a
first basemanoutfielder and he played on four consecutive Southern
Conference championship teams. He was the tourney MVP in '88.
McFarland has been the head coach at Northern Illinois since 1991. He
has a record of 123-211-1. His '95 team went 29-27, which was the first
winning season for the school since 1972. In '96 Northern Illinois went 27-
30 but still managed to win the Midwestern Collegiate Conference tour-
nament to earn a spot in the NCAA tourney. It was also the first league
title for the school since '72. McFarland was a head coach at Kellogg's
Community College in Michigan before going to Northern Illinois. He
was an assistant at Florida State in '82, Georgia Tech from '8386 and at
South Florida from '86 to '90.
Overton, who was forced to resign after this season, posted a 427-237-
1 record while head at ECU which makes him the winningest coach in
Pirate history.

Last week, an ECU basketball play-
er was arrested for allegedly kidnap-
ping two women.
Lawrence Dewavne Thomas, 21,
of 121 Riverbluff Rd Apt. 42,
Greenville, was arrested on
Thursday, July 10, for attempted
second-degree kidnapping and one
count of assault by pointing a gun.
Detective Ricky Best of the
Greenville Police Department inves-
tigated the incident, and confirmed
that the charges were filed against
Thomas.
"He's still in jail-the bond at
presently is $51,000 Best said.
At press time, Thomas was still
being held at the Pitt County
Detention Center, where he has
been held since his arrest.
The alleged incidents of kidnap-
ping involved two twenty-two year
old women at separate times on
Tuesday morning, July 8.
The first woman said she was approached approximately 10:20 a.m.
while she was riding her bike on Hickory Street. She said she was
approached by a black male who asked for directions to Greenville
Boulevard. The man then threatened her with a gun and attempted to force
her into a Chevrolet Cavalier. She escaped into another passing vehicle.
The second woman was walking on Greenville Grcenway at approxi-
mately 10:45 a.m. when she was
approached by a black male on foot, SEE KIDNAPPING PAGE 7

(SID) � The CAA announced the results of its pre-season men's and
women's basketball polls. Both the ODU men's and women's teams were
tabbed favorites to repeat as champions in a poll of CAA coaches.
ODU Head Coach Jeff Capel returns five players who made at least 11
starts for last season's 22-11 squad which captured the CAA title and partic-
ipated in the NCAA Tournament. The Monarchs will be led by junior guard
Mike Byers, a pre-season All-CAA pick, who is the team's leading returning
scorer (11.5 ppg.) Senior point guard Brion Dunlap who was a pre-season
Second Team All-CAA selection, also returns along with junior sharpshooter
Mark Poag who averaged 11.3 ppg. The ODU frontline will feature 1997
part-time starters Reggie Bassette and Cal Bowdlcr along with Skipper
Youngblood. The trio accounted for 13.7 points and 12.2 rebounds per game
and will attempt to replace the production of the 1997 CAA Player of the
Year, Odell Hodge, who graduated.
Joining Byers on the pre-season All-CAA squad are JMU senior forward
Chatney Howard who was a first team All-CAA pick last season after averag-
ing a team high 14.6 points per game for the Dukes. 1997 Second Team All-
CA selections, ECU' Raphael Edwards and American University's Nathan
Smith were voted First Team in the
pre-season poll. Edwards averaged
13.2 ppg last season, while Smith is
the CAA's leading returner scorer
(17.3 ppg) and one of the nation's
top three point threats (82 treys).
Rounding out the team are William
6c Mary junior guard Randy Bracy
and Richmond senior forward Eric
Poole. Bracy averaged 13.0 ppg with
a team high 37 steals while Poole
topped the CAA in rebounding (8.8
rpg) while averaging 10 ppg.
Wendy Larry, the 1997 Sporting
News, RCA and USBWA Coach of
the Year, returns three starters from
ODU's 34-2 squad which captured
its sixth consecutive CAA title and
advanced to the title game of the
1997 NCAA Tournament. The Lady
Monarchs will be led by the 1997
CAA Player of the Year, Ticha
Penicheiro who was a Kodak and AP
All-American last season.
Penicheiro led the nation with 271 assists and 161 steals. ODU team-
mates Nyree Roberts and Mary Andrade each garnered First Team All-CAA
honors last season. Roberts, a 6-3 season center, is the CAA's leading return-
ing scorer (17.0 ppg). She also topped the conference and ranked third
rationally in field goal accuracy (65.2 percent). Andrade, a junior forward,
averaged 11.3 ppg last season with 95 steals and is one of the league's most
versatile players.
Joining the ODU trio on the pre-season All-CAA squad are American uni-
versity's Mary Klima and George Mason's Kristeena Alexander. Klima, a
senior forward, topped the conference in rebounding (8.8 rpg) and was
fourth in scoring (15.5 ppg). Alexander, the 1997 Rookie of the Year, averaged
14.9 points per game. The 5-6 point guard was second in the CAA in steals
(3.4 spg) and sixth in assists (4.1 apg).
British Open showcases
best golfers in world
player in the world. "But I would
like to include Ernie Els and Tom
Lehman, who are playing very well
at the moment. And Greg Norman
won the other week and Nick Price
is on form and you can never count
out the likes of Nick Faldo or Steve
Elkington
Montgomeric did not include
himself on that list but when asked
about the state of his game, the 34-
year-old Scotsman said: "It goes
without saying that I'm playing pos-
sibly the best golf of my 10-year pro
career right now
Whether this British Open pro-
duces a tournament, to Ik- filed away

banks remains to be seen.
Norman, Price and Montgomerie
already have bitter-sweet memories
of Royal Troon and the west coast of
Scotland
For Montgomerie, it is a return to
his childhood home and a reminder
that of the four major champi-
onships this ironically is the one in
which he has fared the worst.
Price thinks back to 1982 at
Troon when he finished second by a
stroke at age 25 after being three
strokes ahead with six holes to play.
He can also revel in the memory of
the 1994 British Open he won just
down the road at Turnberry.
And Norman, who played his first
major championship at Turnberry 20
years ago, remembers that his play-
off loss at Troon in 1989 helped
make him the only person to lose all
TROON, Scotland (AP) - Memories
abound at the British Open, as hap-
pens when an event is held 126
times, and the tournament looming
this week at Royal Troon offers the
promise of something truly memo-
rable.
There may have never been a
major championship held at a time
when so many of the best golfers in
the world were playing their best
golf-
"To be pitted against the best,
playing your best is what you dream
of Greg Norman said Tuesday. "It
would be idyllic if you had nine
holes to go and the top 10 players in
the world locked in within a stroke

The top seven players in the
World Golf Rankings come into this
British Open very much on their

Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Norman,
Colin Montgomerie, Nick Price,

into a major championship with so

A hitter's worst night-
mare: 31 strikeouts
SEATTLE (AP) - The game was a
hitter's worst nightmare. Rusty
Greer, Domingo Cedeno, Jay
Buhner, Dan Wilson and Russ Davis
each struck out three times.
And Cedeno was a fifth-inning
replacement for Will Clark, who took
a Randy Johnson fastball on his right
arm.
Onfy four of the 20 batters in
Sunday's Seattle-Texas game - Joey,
Cora, Alex Rodriguez, Paul Sorrento
and Clark - didn't strike out.
Thirty-one players struck out
against Seattle's Johnson (14) and
Bobby Avala (four), and Texas'
Bobby Witt (nine), Dan Patterson
(two) and John Wettleland (two) to
set a major league record for a nine-
inning game.
"That wasn't real pretty said
Dean Palmer, the Rangers' third
baseman who struck out twice.
"There was a tot of swinging and
missing
The pitching performances broke
the record of 30 strikeouts set by
Seattle and Oakland on April 19,
1986, in a game when Jose Rijo had
16 strikeouts for the Athletics.
In a game that left Johnson noth-
ing to show for seven innings of bril-
liant baseball. Texas won 4-2 on
Sunday with two runs in the ninth
off Ayala. the first on Damon
Buford's Icadoff homer.
Plummer says yes, Haley
and Novacek to say no
(AP)-Thc local hero is coming in
Arizona, just as two key members of
the Dallas Cowboys are leaving the
NFL.
Jake Plummer, who led Arizona
State to an undefeated record and a
Rose Bowl berth last season, agreed
to a three-year, 1.6 million contract
with the Arizona Cardinals on
Monday. He is expected to back up
Kent Graham at quarterback.
"I want to be on a winning team
that goes to the playoffs, and I know
eventually - sometimes it doesn't
happen the first, second, third,
sometimes fifth or sixth year where
you become a starter Plummer
said. "But whenever that happens, I
know I'll get my chance to lead the
team.
Plummer will get a $700,000
bonus, plus $241,000 in salary rhis
year, $302,000 next, and $326,000 in
1999.
While the Cardinals were wel-
coming their young quarterback, the
Cowboys were getting ready to say
goodbye to two mainstays: Charles
Haley and Jay Novacek.
Both were expected to announce
their retirements because of bad
backs at a joint news conference
Tuesday.
Magic GM says Scott's
comments
to youngsters unaccept-
able
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Angry com-
ments by Dennis Scott during a
summer camp in Virginia, including
a threat to sit out next season,
caught the Orlando Magic off-guard.
General manager John Gabriel
said Monday that Scott's actions
before a group of children who lis-
tened to him while explicit rap
music blared from the rear of the
player's nearby sport utility vehicle
were inappropriate.
With arms flailing, the veteran of
seven NBA seasons told the young-
sters, ages 9-17, that he could retire
if the Magic "don't start treating me
right
"Don't ask me for my autograph,
because 28 years ago, I was broke.
You ask for my autograph now
because I've got millions of dollars.
Do not ask me for my autograph. Ask
me to explain the rage that exists

Gabriel said he spoke wuh Scott
by telephone on Monday and that
the 6-foot-8 forward told him that he
wants to remain in Orlando and
honor the final season of a three-
year, $9 million contract.
Tve only seen bits and pieces of
the video. But what he said is unac-
ceptable. He told me he felt it was
something he needed to make a
statement about. But this obviously
wasn't the proper forum Gabriel
said.

Gable to take year off;
may be gone for good
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Dan
Gable era in college wrestling might
be over. For now it's on hold.
Gable, who dominated oppo-
nents as a competitor before making
Iowa the most feared name in the
sport, said Monday he is taking a
year off as coach of the Hawkeyes
and strongly indicated he might be
out of coaching for good.
"One thing I've been good at is
reading my team. That's why we've
been able to make decisions at prop-
er times said Gable, whose teams
have won 15 NCAA championships
during his 21 seasons as coach.
"But I'm grading myself right
now, and I really read myself as nec-
essary for me lo'step down
Tormented by- aching knees and
hips and fatigued by the stress of
constantly seeking perfection, the
48-year-old Gable will work in an
administrative job with the athletic
department while deciding his
coaching future.
Jim Zalesky, an Iowa assistant
who wrestled under Gable, will be
acting coach for the 1997-98 season.
If Gable decides not to come back,
the school would seek a permanent
replacement, athletic director Bob
Bowlsby said.
Heat keeps ti.wds-but
not enthusiasm - down
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - With a
muggy, 92-degree day, the crowds
weren't as big as expected as the
Green Bay Packers opened training
camp.
Expectations for the Super Bowl
champs, though, remain sky high.
"I'm not satisfied at all with what
we've accomplished coach Mike
Holmgren said "I'm pleased, but
I'm not satisfied
A year ago, the Packers were still
smarting after yet another playoff
loss to the Dallas Cowboys. They
came to camp determined to win the
Super Bowl, yet when they started
telling everyone, Holmgren put a lid
on all title talk.
He won't ban the word "repeat"
from the team's vocabulary this year.
"Our goals are set very high
again Holmgren said. "My whole
thing with that was I don't think you
have to talk about it a l�t. Everyone
can talk about it and everyone will.
And it will be written about. I just
don't want the players to talk about
it that much.
"Let's just play and let your
actions speak more than your
words
Even though the champions
return mostly intact, Holmgren told
his team at its orientation meeting
that everyone will have to work hard-
er than last season to have a shot at
back-to-back titles.
