ceeds (ID. Spanglcr. 65. wtio retired this
summcT after 11 years as presidem.
Broad said she had a number of things on
her agenda to tackle right away as president-
They include irnpfcmenring a budget, and
formulating ovcrafl plans and strategics with
chancellors and with the Board of Governors
to outline the agenda.
"Budgets can be much more effectively
manageable with accountability on one hand
and managerial flexibifity on the other
Broad said.
Broad hopes to secure an increase of man-
agerial flcxftility on CNC campuses- This
would give individual schools the freedom to
utilize sources if the chancellor is provided
with flexibility to use those sourccs.
-Thc biggest problem with budgets is
that they come with a lot of restrictions on
how the sources can be used Broad said.
The single most important strategy for
maintaining low tuition, m Broad's opinion,
is to enhance access to higher education. She
hopes to generate additional sources far rev-
enue available to the universities to serve the
projected growth of the system, which is
expecting a large
potential growth cf
students- Broad wiS
seek to diversify
revenue sources

Broad stated

What do you think the
president of the UNC
System does?
the following primary steps of preparation
should be taken care of if a humcanc seems
hkch: check flashlights and their batteries;
check battery-operated radios and televisions:
make sure large antennas, satellite dishes and
other outdoor objects such as lawn furniture
arc tied down or put avvav. double-check evac-
uation routes, review rhe status of yout flood.
home and automobile insurance policies.
As the chances of an oncoming humcanc
increase more preparation and precautions
should be taken. One should check the win-
dows and shutters on the house, making any
repairs necessary. Make arrangements for pets
in rhe event you have to evacuate, fill the gas
tank in the rat as carts as possible, as service
station lines tend to get long after a humcanc
warning, and be sure to have plenty of cash on
hand.
"Students should be prepared to leave
campus and go to their homes rf they arc far-
ther inland said Bobby Joyner. Rn County's
emergency management coordinator.
It would be wise to stock up on the follow-
ing before lines in the grocerv store get long
and supplies become diminished: fresh batter-
ies: bottled water, canned foods (plan enough
meals for the new three days in the event you
lose power): infant care items such as diapers
and formula; a first aid kin candles; matches:
and games or activities such as cards or board
games to occupy the time. If you don i have

Trustees briefly discussed
whether or not additions to Dowdy-
Rcklen Stadium will be completed
by the Sept. 13 game against Vke
Forrest. Contractors working on the
stadium will have to work a third
shift to complete the upper deck. As
a precaution, the University has
stopped selling tickets for the new
seats. If the worst happens, the over-
flow of students will be temporarily
seated in the end zones.
"Wfe will continue to hope and to
pray that the stadium renovation will
be completed by Sept. 14 although
the contractor has experienced
delays said Eakin.
According to the Dairy Reflector,
the Board of Trustees met in closed
session on July 24 to discuss whether
ECU will continue to be involved in
the N.C Alignment Group, a group
of four of the state's largest medical
centers. Medical centers included
are Pitt County Memorial Hospital
and the ECU School of Medicine,
Bowman GnryBaptist Hospital
Medical Center, Carolinas
HealthCare System and the
University of North Carolina Health
Care Systems.
The group was formed to share
information in order to become more

SANFORD, N.C. (AP) - Federal immigration officials overreacted when they
detained 17 Mexicans in trying to prove a connection between the incident and a
smuggling operation in New Ifork City, friends of those detained said.
The Mexicans, most of whom are speech- and heanng-impaired, lived in two
adjoining houses and shared rent and expenses.
Federal aaents on Friday raided the two houses in Sanford after receiving a tip
that the 14 adults and three children were forced to make beads, key chains and
other trinkets and sell them. The Mexicans were taken to an Immigration and
Naturalization Services office in Charlotte.
Earlier in the week, authorities found 57 deaf Mexicans living in two cramped
apartments in New Tfork. In that case, eight people have been charged with run-
ntnc a smuggling ring and keepir the Mexicans against their will. Two undocu-
mented deaTimmigrants from Mexico were arrested in Chicago over the weekend
on similar charges. The Chicago defendants are linked to a similar operation in
New York, INS officials said.

An added fringe benefit of teach-

more time to write. He started writ-

he never tried to publish before

MIAMI (AP) - The medical examiner's office released the body of Andrew
Cunanan, and a funeral home on Sunday prepared the remains for shipment to his
family in California. .
The body was released Saturday to one funeral home but was later transferred
to another because of media scrutiny, said Therman Wilkes, who is responsible for
the shipment of Cunanan's remains.
"We wanted to do this as quietly as possible, wilkes said.
The remains will be flown to Glenn Abbey Memorial Park in Bonita, Calif.
Neither Wilkes nor Glenn Abbey would comment on whether there will be a cre-
mation or burial. ,
Authorities suspect Cunanan in a cross-country killing spree tnat left rive men
dead - including fashion designer Gianni Versace - in four states and prompted an
intensive manhunt.
Cunanan killed himself on Wednesday with the same .40 caliber gun he
allegedly used to kill three of his victims, including Versace.
Authorities continued to examine Cunanan's activity pnor to his suicide and
whether any one was aiding him.
ing for an oncoming storm. However,
some storms have been known to
move at speeds almost double this
rate.
According to the National
Weather Service, once a hurricane
watch is declared for an area, the
storm will make landfall within the
specified region within 36 hours of
the start of the watch.
The hurricane watch covers a
broad region, and this area should
expect at least gale-force winds
(30 mph), high waterflash flood
situations, and even tornadoes. By
this time, more serious precautions
should be made as such winds often
stay at hurricane strength even hun-
dreds of miles inland.
According to the National
Weather Service, hurricane Hugo
(1989) battered Charlotte, North
Carolina (which is about 175 miles
inland) with gusts near 100 mph,
downing trees and power lines, and
Icausing massive disruption. And, of
course, last year hurricane Fran did
damage to the areas surrounding
Greenville and Raleigh before it
made its way up through Virginia.
Once a hurricane watch has been
declared for your region, there's a
good chance you'll feel the brunt of
the storm, according to the National
Weather Service. If you live in a low-
lying area, you should evacuate
immediately.
The storm is less than 24 hours
away, and you've got lots still to do.
Board up windows around the
house, or tape them up with lots of
masking tape, and turn off your gas
lines. Check on the safety of elderly
relatives if they live close by Be sure
to turn your fridge all the way up in
order to keep your food fresh for as
long as possible. Keep the television
andor radio on regularly for weather
and evacuation updates. Write down
the names and locations of evacua-
tion shelters dose to your home.
It is recommended that you do
not stay alone during hurricane
weather. Not only might you need
help in case something serious hap-
pens, you also have to have a way to
constantly monitor what's going on
throughout the storm's passing,
which is not an easy task for one per-
son over a 36 hour period.
Once the hurricane has hit, you
should stay put.
There arc times when conditions
change, however, and you may need
to leave the house during the storm.
Falling trees may be threatening the
house, serious flooding may be
imminent, or you need to get med-
ical attention for you or a family
member.
If it is absolutely necessary that
you drive, drive slowly as it makes it
easier to watch for debris and
obstructions, and high winds and
slick conditions can easily throw you
off the road.
Keep your trips short if at all pos-
sible. Head to the closest evacuation
shelter, police station or hospital. If
you need to get someplace further
along, there will be people at those
locations to help you.

North Korea's Korean Central News Agency quoted U.N. adv.ser Chnstin

North Korea already suffers from chronic food shortages aggravated by severe
flooding in 1995 and 19. North Korea said Saturday it now is battling a wide-
spread drought that has laid waste to 716,300 acres of farmland and 704,300 tons
of grain.
The reclusive communist state, which preaches self-reliance as a guiding phi-
losophy, is already dependent on outside food aid. U.N. agencies estimate the
country needs 800,000 tons of emergency food assistance before October to avert
famine.

McDonald's may be renamed McMob
McDonald's,
known for the fast
food and billions
served, is earning
another
reputation
one of
corporate mafia.
Ronald McDonald: funny clown-
tvpe person or member of the
Corleone family?
McDonald's, known for the fast
food and billions served, is earning
another reputation. The reputation
is one of corporate mafia. The
Ronald McDonald we all know and
love engages in practices that would
make many sick: everything from
intimidating employees to breaking
and entering
The McMob has taken to "influ-
encing" their own employees to lie
to police. In France, Monsieur.
Lamti Hassen, a McDonald's
employee, was accused of armed
robbery at the restaurant where he
works. Hassen was accused of the
robbery by a fellow employee. The
reason behind this accusation was a
simple one: greed.
At the time, Hassen was the
reprsentativedelegate to the union.
McDonald's like most international
corporations, does not like unions.
McDonald's even tried to bribe
Hassen. Hassen has a chance to be
fired with a severance pay of 855
previously unpaid overtime hours,
paving off the remainder of his car
and help in finding a job outside
McDonald's. The rewards came
with one stipulation: renounce
union involvement. Hassen decided
against this tvpe of extortion.
Having employees lie to police is
bad enough, but forcing them to
work in a pool of sewage is disgust-
ing A McDonald's store of the year
did just that. This marvelous store of
the year had a little problem with
their sewage system: it did not drain.
Since the drain was clogged, sewage
was forced back up the pipe. The
kitchen area floor was covered with
raw sewage.
The employees followed their
managers' orders and worked. Some
employees had to overturn bun tins
to stand on while they worked
amidst the two inches of sewage.
This wading in liquid feces hap-
pened twice at this store. I guessed
the second rime made it store of the
vear.
Another case of the McDonald's
crime involved espionage.
McDonald's hired an investigation
agency to infiltrate the most notori-
ous of all crime families, the London
Greenpeace organization. A court in
the United Kingdom had evidence
presented to it that investigators
had broken into the London
Greenpeace office. First Nixorr, now
Ronald McDonald. When will the
insanitv stop?
The breaking and entering is not
McDonald's first brush with the law.
In 1973, McDonald's was ordered to
stop using Sic detector test when hir-
ing staff. Was the lie detector used to
weed out convicted felons or maybe
those w ith a tendency to take home
a little extra cash? No, the lie detec-
tor was used in the hiring process to
find out if prospective employees
had union sympathies.
Some business-tvae people will
sav business is all about profit.
These same people will also say if
the employees do not like working
conditions they can leave, and that
McDonald's has a duty to look out
for its investors. The part 1 do not
like is the business types would be
right.
The dirty to look out for investors
does not include exploiting people,
forcing people to work in crap and
criminaiiarceny; The business types,
-I would- refer them to Miehael
Moore, who says, "If business is all
about profit bow about selling,
crack?" From what 1 hear and see,
crack has an extremely high profit
margin.
The bad part is not that
McDonald's engaged in this kind of
corporate crime. The bad part is
they are not the only ones who arc in
the news. How many other corpora-
tions are eager to squeeze employ-
ees for less money?

Friends make college life bearable
College is a time
when lifelong
friendships are
formed
I personally believe
that men make great
friends.
A tiny sign hangs on the front door of
mv apartment. It reads, "A friend
walks in when the rest of the world
walks out
Friendship is a strange thing It
comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and
ages. It's easy to find and just as easy
to lose. But it is. by far, one of the
most wonderful and fulfilling
aspects of lite.
College is a time when lifelong
friendships are formed. You rely on
your friends for almost everything
whether it's their opinion, the truth,
a ride home or whatever. You are
affected by their actions and words
as tfiey are by yours.
I personally believe that men make
great friends - well most of the time
they So! Three of my closest bud-
dies are guys, and even though each
is so different from the other, a
strong thread of similarity runs
through them. They are all brutally
frank, impatient and pretend to act
as if nothing bothers them. But they
are also very helpful, kindhcarted
and arc good listeners.
Take my good friend Marc, for exam-
ple. Here's a guy who has a straight
4.0 GPA and yet doesn't think twice
about photcopying loads of his notes
for me just because I've been too
lazy in class to take my own.
Recently, a professor asked me to
give an impromtu presentation in
class. Of course, I was ill prepared
and, despite my protests, I had to
walk to the front of the room, where
I mumbled a few incoherent sen-
tences. Then, feeling totally miser-
able, I returned to my seat. Marc
leaned over and said, "Ciood job
That simple gesture meant a lot to
me and I immediatelv felt better
about the whole incident. He
politely listens to all of my rarrrings

quent than I'd like to admit.
However, he is not one to mince
words either. He tells me that even
though he reads all of my columns
(yipeee), he finds them quite pes-
simistic and wishes I would lighten
up. .v
Ash, who happens to be my neighbor

OK. So these are the mid-year-mid-sum-
mer-albums-1-wan ted-to-re vie w-but-
haven't-reviewed-so-I'm-gonna-review-
them-now mini-reviews. Got it?
-Bantam Rooster, Deal Me In: Bantam
Rooster are two Michigan guys, Eric Cook
on drums and T. Jackson Potter on guitar
and vocals, who kick up a lot of rock-n-roll
dust Crypt Records style. Their hell-bent
rockabilly is not terribly original, but they
make The Rev. Horton Heat look like a
choir boy. The 16 songs on the album clock
in at a little more than 30 minutes. The
very raw and primitive "Lawdy Lawdy
"Miss Luxury and "In the Manner to
Which I'm Accustomed" are juvenile delin-
quent rock at its best. '
-Lynnfield Pioneers, Istmp Comp E.P:
Noisy bastards, these guys are. Lynnfield
Pioneers remind me of a less-bluesy, more-
spastic Chrome Cranks. A lot of the vocals
are rap-based, but the band's sound is not
akin to the angry-goatee rock of Rage
Against the Machine; songs like "Latoya"
and "Contact High" are closer in spirit to
Oraagr-era Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
These guys have a full-length album slated
for release in October on Matador.
-Link Wray, Missing I-inks, volumes 1-4:
Dunn native and original punk Link Wray is
a bad man. Norton Records is giving this
American original his dues with this four
volume collection of hard to find Wray
songs. So far, I've only listened to Vol. 2 (Big
City After Dark), which has a lot of good
stuff and some not so good stuff that would
have been better off not released. The title
track, "The Bad and the Good" and
"Street Fighter" are Link Wray at his high-
octaned best. However, some of the live
cover songs cause the album to drag; "I

-Cagney and Lacee, Six Feet of Chain:
Dean Wareham, from Luna, and his wife,
Claudia Silver, released this small collec-
tion of country and soul covers. Standouts
on the album include "Memphis" and
"Greyhound Goin' Somewhere Minnie
Riperton's "Lovin You" is where sweet
turns to wretched sap. Fortunately, it's one
of the album's few blemishes.
-Freakwater, Darning Under Hater: This
album was originally released in 1991, but
Thrill Jockey re-released it earlier this year.
Catherine Ann Irwin and Eleventh Dream
Day's Janet Beveridge Bean both have gor-
geous voices and do justice to the memory
of the Carter Family on songs such as
"Selfishness in Man" and "You're Still on
My Mind There are few original songs on
the album, but "Your Goddamn Mouth"
gives listeners an early example of lrwin's
songwriting abilities.
-Palace Music, Lost Blues anil Other Songs:
Nice, little, quiet songs. This is a collection
of seven inches and other stuff released by-
Palace and its ever changing name (report-
edly Will Oldham is dropping the Palace
name after this release). "Ohio River Boat
Song "Valentine's Day" and "Little Blue
Eyes" are good examples of Oldham's
swooning folk music. If you can avoid
falling asleep while listening to this, you'll
love it.
-Yo La Tengo, Can Hear the Heart Beating
As One: I think this is my favorite album
title of the year. Yo La Tengo has demon-
strated that it cannot be labeled on past
albums, and this album is no different.
From the feedback-full, yet melodic
"Sugarcube" to the country sweetness of
"One PM Again Yo La Tengo proves itself
capable of many styles, yet also capable of a
cohesive album.
-Guided by Voices, Mag Farxhig
Robert Pollard is back with a new band
(Tobin Sprout and the old Voices help out
on a few songs). The album, perhaps,
shows a more abrasive side of Guided by
Voices, but the sweet melodies and
Pollard's pop-perfect voice are still evident
on "I am a Tree 'Bulldog Skin" and
"Choking Tara It'll be interesting to see
how long Pbllard and Cobra Verde stick
together.

Before ever listening to Flipp's self-
titled debut CD, I already didn't
like them. They looked like every
other cheap band who didn't have
much of a chance getting anywhere
musically, so they decided to milk
the "alternative image" for all it was
worth. Now that I've actually heard
the CD, I still hate the image, but I
have hope for the band.
Before I even get into the music,
I must say that Flipp has to be the
luckiest band ever. After singer
Brynn Arens, bassist Cherry Forever,
and drummer Kilo Bale recorded a
version of the Who's "My
Generation" for fun, a friend wanted
to shoot a video for it to test his new
floodlights. The $5 video soon
found its way to New York with
Arens. where he plaved ir for fri -nds
and anyone he thought might have
connections (including a janitor at
Warner Brothers).
The good reviews sent .Arens
back to Minneapolis to recruit his
brother into the band. Their second
gig before 30,000 at "Edgefest" in
Wisconsin drew notoriety when
Arens started a mud fight and
mooned the crowd earning a spot on
MTV News. Soon after, the band
won an MTV contest for best home-
made video and ended up opening
for White Zombie. Between all this
publicity and an ever-growing fol-
lowing, the band was soon signed
and recording their debut album.
This brings us to the CD itself.
Flipp starts off promisingly enough
with a light little tune called "1 Wish
I Was Planet Whereas so many
bands these days seem to think they
have to break new ground and do
something totally unheard of, or use
unusual sounds or timing, Flipp
comes out pounding and sticks to it.
No big surprises, just a simple
peppy song.
"Bleed" comes next and contin-
ue where "Planet" left off.
If vou are over 21, chances are you have had your fair
share of Milwaukee's Best, Natural Lite. Bud and
other such stale beers usually found at college keg-
gers. But when the time comes that keg beer just
won't do the trick, you may realize that you have
developed standards. You know, one day Beast is
just fine and the next day nothing but Heineken
will suffice.
This is the kiss of death for the college student
who depends on that $2.89 six pack to curb a crav-
ing for beer. Beer drinkers may eventually find
themselves leaning toward the more expensive
selection of beers for several reasons. The more
expensive imports and microbrews provide a
greater deal of variety than your average Anheuser-
Busch dealer. This makes it easier to find some-
thing to suit your tastes. Unfortunately, once you
have had a taste of the good stuff, it's hard to go
back to the schwagg.
However, if you find
yourself in this situa-
tion (broke and
needing good beer)
there are a few alter-
natives. 1 am not try-
ing to advocate ways
to get drunk for
cheap (if that's what
you want. Peasant's
has a great mug night
on Tuesdays), but being the beer snob that I am. I
knew I had to find an alternative to premium beer
at a college beer price. So I decided to choose nine
beers at random, all under five bucks for a six pack
of bottles, and rate them in an attempt to find
something affordable, yet drinkable.
The research took all weekend and was a
long and laborious process. I struggled with my
decisions as I tasted and tasted again, making sure
the data was correct and that my decisions were
unbiased. The nine samples I tried were Dundee's
Honev Brown, Miller High Life, Bud Ice, Saranac
Summer Wheat, Michelob Amber Bock, Micheloo
Classic Dark, Michelob Gold Pilsner, and just for
good measure, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Schlitz Malt
Liquor.
Michelob seems to be trying to captute the
microbrew market. Unfortunately, theit recipes
don't have that microbrew variety. Maybe they need
to narrow their production. But the Amber Bock at
$4.29 a six pack was great and the best beer I sam-
pled. It was a good amber beer, smooth and rich
without being bitter, and free of any funky after
taste.
The Golden Pilsner, also S4.29, tasted too much
like the Amber Bock, but not as good. I wouldn't
buy this again.
.Another good one was the Honey Brown. It's fla-
vor is similar to Newcastle Brown Ale, but not quite
as bitter, and at S4.49 a six pack, it's half the price
of the English ale.
1 had a neutral reaction to the Michelob Classic-
Dark . the Pabst Blue Ribbon, and the Schlitz Malt
Liquor. All are drinkable but not much better than
keg beer. PBR is the cheapest at $2.79 for a six pack

of cans, and even though it is the most watered
down beer I have ever had, drinking PBR make me
feel like a part of Americana. The only bonus to the
Schlitz Malt Liquor is that if you don't finish it, you
can screw the cap back on and drink it for breakfast.
A few beers to stay away from are Bud Ice and
Saranac Summer Wheat. Bud Ice may have a highei
alcohol content than regular beer but, trust me, it is
not worth it. Bud Ice is a complete waste of monev
and the only thing even remotely interesting aboui
this beer is its tacky bottle. But, of the nine beers I

Dependable Ford lifts Air:ForceOne
However, by now Arens vocal atti-
tude and the pointless lyrics start to
take their toll. Still there's some-
thing catchy about the song that
draws you in and makes you want to
listen anyway. Of course, by the
time 'Another Boring Day" starts,
vou may find yourself thinking it's
just another boring song.
Flipp definitely has some pluses,
such as good background harmonies
and definitive sounds for each song,
but the sum doesn't equal the
whole of its parts. Partly, this is the
band's fault, other times it's solely
.Arens fault. For example, "All In My
Head" starts off well with an omi-
nous guitar sound that gives way to
a loose bass riff, but Arens isn't con-
tent to just sing the song and insists
on slurring words here, holding
notes there and adding attitude to
everything that drags the whole
song down.
On "Slag the pop guitar intro
gives way to a totally different
sound once the lyrics statt. After 18
seconds of an excellent song, it
takes a downhill turn and fails mis-
erablv.
Overall, Flipp's problems are
totally fixablc with a little work.
Maybe by their next CD they will
have a little more experience under
their belt and they'll be able to bet-
ter take their mix of pop. rock and
punk and make it work in the best
possible way. In the meantime, the
band will lie busy opening for anoth-
er pop, rock, punk fusion band,
Cheap Trick, at the Mission in
Raleigh on July 31 and in Winston
Salem at .iggv's on A ug. 2. Maybe
Cheap Trick's 20 years of experi-
ence will rub off on Flipp to lead
them to bigger and better things.

Harrison Ford is famous for being the thinking pet-
son's action hero, and with good reason. In an era of
bloated, big budget action blockbusters that carry-
little plot and zero characterizations, Ford's adven-
ture films offer less explosions and more substance.
Films like Blade Runner, Witness, Tlw Fugitive and
Clear and Present Danger are all filled with a maturi-
ty and sophistication rarely seen in the typical
Hollywood thrilier.
As a result, Ford has become a cinematic icon,
someone who has the star charisma of James
Stewart and the kick-ass attitude of John Wayne.
He has, in more ways than one, transformed into
Hollywood's vision of the American hero, someone
who represents noble ideals and will uphoid those
ideals no matter the obstacles or challenges. He is
someone the audience can always count on to win.
Keeping all of this in mind, it's easy to under-
stand whv Ford's newest film is not a stretch for
him. Air Force One casts Ford as none other than the
President of the United States (in this case, a fic-
tional one named James Marshall). However, this
President is not your typical sit-behind-a-desk
leader. This is a President who is forced into phys-
ical action in a desperate effort to save his family,
his countrv and, ves, his ideals. This is a role tailor-
made for Ford, and it is a thrilling event packed
with countless action sequences. Unfortunately,
chough, it does not rank as high on the intelligence
meter as it could.
The basic premise is hard to swallow, but once
you accept it, the rest will fall into place. All you
need to know is that this is another Die Hard on a
plane, only this time it's the President of the U.S
sneaking around and taking on a nasty group of
Russian renegade terrorists led by a trigger-happy
Ivan Korshunov (played by the always exceptional
Gary Oldman).
With actors like Ford, Oldman and Glenn Close
(who plays Vice President Kathryn Bennett), and a
director like Wolfgang Petetsen (who earned vast
critical acclaim for his claustrophobic film Das
Boot), one would hope for and expect a serious and
intelligent "what- if-this-really-happened" thriller.
Such is not necessarily the case. While Air Force One
does have its fair share of brains and gravity, it is
also filled with hard-to-swallow feats that almost
come off as being cartoonish.

.Although the majority of the film is plausible,
certain scenes simply look silly. The climatic mid-
air rescue mission, for example, is technically pos-
sible, but the blue-screen effect destroys any sus-
pension of disbelief. This, though, can be blamed
on the limited technology available for such special
effects and the sheer difficulty of filming anything
so fantastic.
Other cornv scenes, however, can be blamed on
the script, written by .Andrew W Marlowe, which
flip-flops from being great to being standatd fare.
.An early scene onboard the plane shows the
President relaxing with his family and staff. It's a
serviceable scene that illustrates the kind of man
he is when not speaking before a committee or the
media. Unfortunately, portions of the essential dia-
logue here border on being cliche. For example,
Marshall at one point tells his daughter that she is
voung and doesn't need to be exposed to the harsh,
violent realities of life. Big, red letters spelling
"foreshadowing" might as well flash on the screen
at this point because we all know the horror that is
to come. .
But these complaints are minor, especially w hen
the film as a whole is taken into consideration
There is enough energetic action to satisfy am
adventure fan, and Wolfgang Petersen choreo
graphs each scene with the precision of a mastei
carpenter. While most action films, like Con Air 3Tc
Die Hard With a Vengeance, repeatedly throw so mam
quicklv edited visual flashes at the audience thai
action sequences have little or no logic to them. An
Force One stages each conflict in a purposeful man
ner and with a structured sense of pacing.
No high-profile actot is better suited than Fore
to execute the physicality of this film and stil
maintain a true sense of controlled leadership. Ht
alwavs manages to layer his performances witr
slight touches of subtletv. and this performance i;
no different. One of the film's most gut-wrenching
moments centers around the expression on I-ord
face at the verv moment he realizes he has to break
a terrorist's neck in order to stay alive and get hit
plane back. It's not the excitement of the fight thai
makes the scene work, but the sorrowful yet
angered expression in our hero's eyes.

continued from page 4
Ford is Oidman, who is every bit the
ultimate icon of the bad guy as Ford is
the good guy. A scene in which
Oidman tells Marshall's daughter that
her father is a murderer, even if he
kills with authority from behind a
Presidential desk, effectively allows
Oidman to make Ivan less a monster
and more a victim of war. It's an excel-
lent shade-of-gray area that could
have been further explored but fades
away once the bullets start flying.
Without a doubt. Air Force One
owes a great debt to its two leads.
Ford and Oidman, both highly under-
rated actors, give the Film its main
thrusting force and raise the
respectability of the entire produc-
tion.
Other stand-out items include:
the political war in the White House
between Close and Dean Stockwell,
who insists that he. has the constitu-
tional right to make all the calls when
the President and his family are in
peril; William H. Macy's small but
eye-catching performance as a
Presidential aide who joins his boss in
the battle; and Michael Ballhaus'
exquisite use of lighting and camera
angles (the scene where Marshall
addresses the Russian government
simply looks gorgeous).
Air Forte One is not a great film, but
it succeeds where it needs to and, as
a result, should be a huge hit in the
States and abroad. This is a positive
thing. Since Hollywood is so desper-
ately trying to find the next big action
star (lately we've witnessed even hot.
young actor from Nicolas Cage to
Jason Patric pick up a gun and take off
his shirt), it's refreshing to know that
a 55-year-old pro like Ford can still roll
with the best of them.
He may be getting older, but you
can stiil count on him to win in the
end.

ECU welcomed in Conference USA
Charges of abuse force resignation
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Tom Welch, who spent a decade bringing the 2002
Winter Olympics to Salt Lake City, resigned today as president of the local orga-
nizers following charges he abused his wife.
Welch announced the move at a news conference, saying he had met Monday
night with local members of the Salt Lake Olympic Organizing Committee's
executive committee and was not pressured to leave.
"While mv familv and I had many wonderful experiences along the way, we also
exposed ourselves to long-term stresses which we neither recognized nor fore-
saw he said. "One of the casualties was my marriage, which broke along the way.
We were unable to repair it
Welch, reading a statement, said reports of the "unfounded charges and alle-
gations" related to his wife were just too great for him to keep his job.
His departure comes eight days after being charged with bruising his 47-year-
old wife. Alma, during a scuffle at their home July 9.
The SLOC executive committee and members of the 40-member board are
meeting Wednesday to consider terms of Welch's contract as a consultant to the
committee. Welch said members had asked him to remain in that capacity.
Barkiey in court for day two of trial
CLEVELAND (AP) - Charles Barkiey was patting rear ends and joking as if he
were on the court, not in one.
Barklev; sued for $500,000 over a bar fight, was br�ck in court today for the sec-
ond day of his trial.
The Houston Rockets forward arrived Monday and mouthed an expletive to
the plaintiff, Jeb Tvler, before prospective jurors were led in to the courtroom. He
also signed autographs and patted the behinds of his two attorneys when asked to
stand as the judge entered the courtroom.
"You tell everybodv back in Houston I'm fine said Barkiey, who has accused
Tyler of making up a story to get money from him. "Unfortunately, being famous,
this is one of the drawbacks
During jury selection, plaintiff lawyer Timothy 5ta asked jurors, "Does anyone
have a problem with Mr. Tyler being from around Rochester, NY?" Barkiey, who
is from Leeds, Ala raised his hand.
In the July 7, 19 fight, Barkiey jumped past bouncers to repeatedly punch
Tyler, who was acting as a peacemaker during an argument about a woman, Ita said
in opening statements.
The scuffle happened last summer at The Basement nightclub when Barkiey
was in town with the U.S. Olympic basketball team. Barkiey has told police he
was the one who was attacked, and a defense lawyer said Olympic teammate
Reggie Miller will testify that Tyier threw the first punch.
ACC may have to settle for bowls
ASHEVILLE (AP) - Despite visions of a big conglomerate of leagues and second-
tier howl tie-ins. the Atlantic Coast Conference has had to face reality
Although the ACC became a major postseason participant when Florida State
joined the league in 1992, reluctance from other area means the league may have
to stand pat and sign extended agreements with the Gator, Peach and Carquest
bowls
"We were really interested in talking with some other leagues and oter bow Is
and having four, five or six together and maybe several more conferences togeth-
er ACC commissioner John Swofford said Tuesday. "For whatever reasons they
looked at it differently. .
"People have to do wwt they feel like is best for their league and that s what
thevdid . , .
Swofford did mention some other bowl possibilities, including a new bowl next
season in Nashville, Tenn but also said the league has had a very good relation-
ship with the three second-tier bowls now under contract. Those contracts expire
after this season.
"We want to step back and look at what opportunities might be there and be
as creative as we can be Swofford said.
The ACC champion is assured of a spot in the upper tier Bowl Alliance and the
Super Alliance, which begins a four-year run next season. The Gator Bowl then
gets to choose a second team from the league, the Peach a third team and the
Carquest a fourth.
With Florida State on top of the ACC for five straight seasons, some teams
have gone to the same bowl several times. That often leads to fan apathy and poor
attendance. . � � u �.
Despite failing to strike a more encompassing second tier deal with confer-
ences like the Big East, Big Ten and SEC, Swofford still favors the current bowl
selection process over a decade ago, when it was basically a free-for-all.
Norman out of Anderson Consulting World Championship
of Golf
KOHLER, Wis. (AP) - Defending champion Greg Norman was ousted yesterday
m the semifinals of the international leg of the Andersen Consulting World
Championship of Golf.
Fourth-seeded Steve defeated his fellow Australian 2-and-1, advancing to the
final this afternoon against Ernie Els.
The winner of the match-play rourney gets a $200,000 paycheck and advances
to face European champion Colin Montgomerie of Scotland in the four-man world
finals at Scottsdale, Ariz, on Jan. 3-4, 1998.
Els beat Nick Price 3-and-2 on the unforgiving River Course at Blackwolf Run
in the other semifinal today
Norman, the world's third-ranked golfer, bogeyed holes 11 and 16 and con-
ceded the par-3 17th to seventh-ranked Elkington.
"Greg had a couple of bad holes Elkington said.
This is the last finals matchup to be determined. Hajime Meshiai won the
Japanese leg and will face Davis Love III, who won the U.S. regional, in the other
world semifinal.
It was difficult to tell which was tougher, the course or the competition, the
stiff winds or the sloping greens.
All four quarterfinal matches on Monday came down to the 18th hole. All four
losing golfers bogeyed the 469-yard, par-4 final hole.
Williams says 12 years is enough
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Carolina Panthers defensive end Gerald Williams
has decided that 12 years in the NFL is enough. Williams, who will turn 34 in
September, said Tuesday he plans to make the 1997 season his last.
"There comes a point in time in your life when it's time to get on with life's
work Williams said. "I've enjoyed this game. I've been blessed to play this game
for a number of years
Williams, coming off his most productive season in eight years, anchored the
right side of a line that helped the Panthers become one of the best defenses in
the NFL and advance to the NFC championship game.
"I think I'm at a good point in my life where I've done all that 1 can do in foot-
toll with the exception of earning that jewelry he said. "Pd like to do that this
year. If not, then it's time for me to get on with life's work
A second-round pick of the Steelers in 1986, Williams played his first nine sea-
sons in Pittsburgh before joining the Panthers as an unrestricted free agent in
March 1995.
He had 49 tackles last vear. the second-highest total on the defensive line and
the third-highest total of his career.
In addition to his on-field performance, which includes 413 career tackles and
25 12 sacks, Williams is extremely active in the community, donating large
amounts of time to various charities.
The Panthers made several moves in the offseason to increase their depth at
defensive end, including signing unrestricted free agent Rav Seals from the
Steelers in March. Waverly Jackson, an undrafted free-agent rookie from Virginia
Tech, has been impressive so far. drawing praise from Capers and his staff at two
minicamps this spring and during training camp at Wofford College.

Football season is right around the corner and last week Conference USA offi-

Of course the buzz at this year's meeting was the addition of ECU to the

building up the conference.

"There were a lot of teams we could have added to this conference to create

Cincinnati Head Coach Rick Minter
agrees that ECU is a quality addition.
"We want to bring in quality teams that
add quality dimensions to our league
Minter said. "East Carolina is one of the
best teams out there

pending two charges of second degree
attempted kidnapping, two counts of
assault on a female and one count of
assault by pointing a gun. Bond is set at

Thomas' trial will begin this Friday

Hogan almost never spoke on the

The stories all paint the same
picture of a man single-mindedly

In Hogan's day, caddies shagged
balls, standing in the practice range
while the pros hit balls at them. One
story has Hogan hitring his caddie
with a 1-iron shot and then nailing
the poor boy two more times before
he could get up. He was that accu-

One acquaintance said Hogan
always drove to the golf course below
the speed limit to develop a focus on

balls.

Scotland, vvhere Hogan won the only
British Open he played, said he

whom Hogan had known since they
were 9 - was winning 18 tourna-
ments and 11 in a row.
A national news magazine ran a
cover story on Nelson with the head-
line: "Mr. Golf
When thev met head-to-head for
the first time after the article
appeared it was at the Portland
Invitational and Hogan played 72
holes in 27 under par, a mark no one

strokes.
As Nelson stuck out his hand to
congratulate Hogan. the little man
in the white hat said: "That should

And then there is the dream
Hogan told about in which he saw
himself making 17 consecutive
holes-in-one only to trudge off the
course in anger after the 18th spun
out of the cup.
Even in a dream, Hogan was
telling us, perfection on the golf
course was not possible. But he came
as close as anyone.
-What has given him his edge

Grantland Rice wrote. "I've seen
Hogan finish a hard morning round,
grab a sandwich, and then go out for
an hour's practice before starting the
afternoon round
Another part of the Hogan mys-
tique was the notion that he under-

that no one else had yet to learn.
Deane Beman, the former PGA

when thev talked about creating the
Hogan Tour - what is now the Nike

Pittsboro, Ind has started from the
pole each of the past two years. He
led the first three laps last year but
crashed on the 24th lap and was 74
laps behind the leader by the time
he finally returned to the race. He
managed only another 17 laps and
finished 37th among the 40 starters.
Martin started next to Gordon on
the front row last year and led 19 laps
earlv in the race. He finished fourth,
behind Jarrett. Irvan and Labonte.

"We were close at the end. We
weren't good enough to win, but we were
