"These kinds of problems ami repairs are
not uncommon in such projects. Similar work

for the Vlanra Olympics said Rye.
The defective beam is not the only prob-

records shows. A series of reports was tiled by
a Greenville construction consultant. Wallace

to keep track of the projects progress. These
disturbing reports have been filed since the
time construction began in November

Players (Tub. an apartment complex frequent-

ceedings resulting from a suit brought against
them bv a former employee earlier this vear.
The former employee is Join Wynne, who
has alleged that the owner of Players Club,
John Barrett, and the property manager at the
time, leanme Northcutt, followed discrimina-
tors practices when renting the apartments.
Specifically, the suit alleged that plaintifl
Wvnne was instructed not to rent to black
applicants. Wynne also alleged that, on several
occasions. Defendant Barrett had made racial-
K discriminatory comments.
Barrett has denied all charges, and a coun-
tersuit has been tiled against Wvnne. The case

More parking available
on campus than
past four years
s I U I- U" K I ! ! H
As the amount of students at ECl has
increased over the years, there has been a
enormous demand to increase the limited
amount of parking spaces. But ECl is doing
its best to alleviate the shortage of parking
spaces, by adding new lots and reconfiguring
the old ones
Parking Lots such as the Erwin parking lot
and the Rivers Building parking lot are being
"designed in a more efficient way according
to Dr. George "SATAN" Harrell, assistant vice
chancellor for administration and finance.
"Bv reconfiguring the Erwin parking lot we
created 19 new spaces" said Harrell.
The Rivers Building parking lot is expect-
ed to yield 11 new spaces.
Parking on Library Drive has already
increased, and it is expected to be expanded
"We've finished phase I of the Library
Drive parking lots. All of the spaces are cur-
rently online said Harrell. A minimal
amount of spaces will be temporarily taken off
line in or to begin phases II and III of the
Librarv Drive lots later on this year.
However there will be an equal amount of
tempora parking in the area to make up for
the areas t iken off-line.
This � ar all freshman parking will be
located on Charles Blvd. next ro the Allied
Health Sciences building. Currently there
are 242 new parking spaces in the freshman
parking lot, and there are plans to have it
paved during the fall break. Overflow park-
ing will be provided on the grass lots near the
Athletic Complex on Charles Blvd.
'The old freshman parking lots located east
of Reade Street will be designated for vehi-
cles with Resident. Commuter. Limited and
Staff parking permits, and are also expected
to be paved in the near future.
More parking spaces will be available once
the stadium expansion is complete.
"When we get through with the stadium.
that entire area that used to be the intramur-
al fields will provide more than 500 parking
spaces said Harrell. "it has the potential of
being done in the next school year
"There is more parking than there has
been on campus for four years said Harrell.

Lawmakers still trying to reach welfare accord
RALEIGH (AP) - As expected, North Carolina's welfare reform effort has
become a numbers game. But not just for those on the dole.
In the waning days of the legislative session, the debate over welfare
reform has lawmakers comparing notes and numbers, and the sum total
they've come up with is zero - as in no deal.
With all other major budget issues resolved, the House and Senate
members negotiating welfare are under pressure to reach a deal this week.
The two sides were to resume formal negotiations today on what
remains the only major obstacle to adopting a state budget and adjourning
the legislative session for the year. The state's fiscal year already is eight
weeks old.
An agreement on welfare reform seemed far off ftiday, when, for three
hours, sate Secretary of Human Resources David Bruton shuttled back
and forth down a hallway in the Legislative Office Building.
Senate Democrat conferees and their staff camped out in a conference
room on one end, munching on junk food. House Republican conferees
huddled in a legislator's office near the other end of the hall.
Immigrants to face food stamp cuts
CJHARLOTTE (AP) - Raisa Nemirovsky is an immigrant, elderly and poor.
Soon, she will be poorer.
Nemirovsky, who is from the Ukraine, is one of thousands of legal immi-
grants in North Carolina and South Carolina who will lose food stamp ben-
efits under a federal law which will take effect next month.
The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act
of 19 cuts a number of benefits to immigrants and does not make excep-
tions for those who cannot work.
Immigration officials say 3,610 immigrants in North Carolina and South
Carolina will have their benefits cut when the law takes effect.
Congress approved the welfare reform package last summer, cutting $54
billion from the national budget over six years. The plan put a five-year cap
on benefits for refugees who fled persecution from their native countries
and eliminated welfare aid for most other noncitizen immigrants as soon as
they arrive in the United States.
Anti-cigarette groups complain about Winston ads
WASHINGTON (AP) - Public health groups asked the Federal Trade
Commission to investigate RJ. Reynolds' new ad campaign for its additive-
free Winston cigarettes, saying the ads imply this brand is safer to smoke.
RJR recently reformulated its Winston brand to remove all additives,
saying it makes the cigarettes with just tobacco and water. The ads push
the brand with such slogans as "no additives, no bull" and "yours have addi-
tives - new Wins tons don't
Some ingredients added to cigarettes are listed as carcinogens, but the
Lung Association said removing the additives doesn't affect the nicotine
that makes cigarettes addictive or the tar that is largely responsible for lung
The ALA, American Cancer Society and American Heart Association
filed the petition with the FTC Friday.
RJR did not immediately comment.
After 1-day delay, NASA launches
bargain-priced solar observatory
CAPE CANAVERAL Fta. (AP) - After a frustrating day's delay, NASA
today launched a bargain-priced spacecraft on a five-year mission to study
the sun.
The unmanned Delta rocket blasted off late this morning with the SI 10
million solar observatory called Ace, one of NASA's cheapest spacecraft
ever. On-board cameras provided spectacular views of Earth and the burn-
ing boosters as the rocket sped out over the Atlantic Ocean.
It was the second launch attempt; Sunday's try was thwarted by shrimp
fishermen who strayed into the launch-danger zone offshore.
An hour after liftoff, Ace broke out of low Earth orbit at 25,000 mph and
began zooming toward the sun. Ground controllers applauded the news.
Ace, short for Advanced Composition Explorer, will spend the next four
months hurtling toward a point 1 million miles from Earth and 92 million
miles from the Sun. It is the fourth NASA spacecraft to be launched to this
imaginary point, where the gravity of Earth and the gravity of the sun bal-
ance each other.
North Korean envoy to Egypt reportedly defects
u. CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - North Korea's ambassador to Egypt has defected,
-E South Korean media reported today, in the first case ever of a top envoy
fleeing the communist state.
r North Korea's embassy in Cairo denied that Ambassador Chang Sung
oj Gil had defected, but gave conflicting accounts on his w hereabouts.
One official said Chang was in the embassy in Cairo. Another said he
was in North Korea on private business. Both spoke to The Associated
Press on condition of anonymity.
However, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry today said Chang has been
missing for three days.
Said Ragab, head of the ministry's Asia desk, said the North Korean
Embassy notified Egyptian officials Saturday that Chang left his home in
Cairo at noon Friday and had not been seen since.
The embassy asked the ministry to investigate, Ragab told the AR
Authorities have searched hospitals and departure records at airports
and seaports, but found no trace of the ambassador, he said.
Tense showdown between Israel, Palestinian troops
in Bethlehem
BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) - Armed Palestinian police intervened
yesterday to keep Israeli soldiers from chasing stone-throwers into
Palestinian territory, training their assault rifles on the Israeli troops in a
tense half-hour standoff.
The confrontation came in a day of angry, violent protests over Israel's
siege of Bethlehem, which has sealed in the city's residents since shortly
after the July 30 suicide bombings in Jerusalem.
The tensest showdown of the day started when dozens of Palestinians
threw stones at Israeli soldiers guarding Rachel's Tomb, an Israeli-con-
trolled enclave in the Palestinian-run town of Bethlehem.
Israeli soldiers fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the stone
throwers, then started approaching the Palestinian-controlled area.
Palestinian policemen quickly took positions behind walls and barricades,
pointing their Kalashnikov assault rifles at the soldiers.
The Palestinians eventually lowered their weapons when the fighting
cased, but remained in position.
The armed showdown signaled a further deterioration in relations
between Israel and the Palestinians, brought to their latest crisis by last
month's bombings by Islamic militants.

ECU students have say in judicial matters
Becky alley
Each semester students complain about not having
enough of a voice in the government on campus, but
tew realize how easy it is to get involved with stu-
dent government. One of the most crucial student
government associations is the Honor Board.
The Honor Board is made up of two faculty
advisers and 29 students. These students review
allegations of student violations of the ECU Code of
Conduct to determine guilt or innocence. If guilt is
determined, they also decide what sanctions will be
The penalties can range from a written repri-
mand to expulsion from the university.
The Honor Board is responsible for making sure
students who need to be removed from the univer-
sity are removed and those who deserve to stay do
stay. That's a lot of responsibility said Karen Boyd,
associate dean of students.
Each case is heard by a board of five to seven stu-
dents and is presented by the student attorney gen-
eral and student public defender.
The student attorney general is Hayden
Jennings and the student public defender is
Scnya Johnson.
"Both Hayden and Sonya are excellent in
what they da They put in a lot of hours and
hard work, i think they are tremendous repre-
sentatives of the student body. They're the
kind of students we like to introduce to people
and say they are East Carolina University stu-
dents Boyd said.
lb be considered for the Honor Board a stu-
dent must be full-time, not a member in the
student legislature or executive council, main-
tain a 2.0 grade point average and must be in
good standing with the university.
After a student applies for the Honor Board
they must pass a series of interviews and have
their names forwarded ail the way to the SGA
executive council and then on to the legislature
where they are approved.
The Honor Board meets on an as needed
basis and members continually receive training
throughout their appointment.
The selection process begins in February of
each year and is open to all students who meet
the requirements.
Students should be aware of academic standin
All students, entering freshmen and
upperclassmen, need to be aware of
the consequences of academic proba-
Academic probation is any student
who has attempted 1-31 semester
hours and has a cumulative grade
point average (GPA) of 1.75 or less or
any student who has attempted 32
semester hours or more and has a
cumulative GPA of 2.00 or less.
Once a student is determined to
be on academic probation they will
remain there until the required GPA
is obtained. If they did not meet the
GPA requirements, they risk being
Students who arc placed on acade-
mic probation will receive written
notification from the registrar's office
and the proper marks will thenbe
indicated on the students university

Don Joyner, undergraduate studies.
Throughout the next semester the
student will be required to take part
in a series of intervention programs.
"If you are placed on probation you
have a semester to bring your grades
up said Joyner.
The first requirement the student
must fulfill is to meet with an adviser
or attend an academic review session.
These review sessions will be con-
ducted by the student's academic
department prior to the semester
This review session in given before
the start of school and includes dis-
cussions on: ways to succeed in col-
lege, hew to compute your GPA, grade
replacement and academic recovery
information. Students will also receive
a class attendance log and a list of aca-
demic assistance resources.
The student will also be required
to complete an academic review form
with their advisee

bation will be suspended from the

time and you come back in and you

The third suspension is indefinite.
Once the student is suspended,
they may only appeal their suspension
if they have completed the interven-
tion strategies. Completion of inter-
vention strategies does not ensure
readmittance to the university.
'Anyone who has been suspended
has the right to write a letter of

Lawmakers urge lifting tobacco liability protections
California lawmakers on Monday
urged final action on legislation which
would dear the way for Cai ifomians to
file product liability lawsuits against
tobacco manufacturers.
The legislation, by Sen. Quentin
Kopp, I-San Francisco, would drop
tobacco from a 1987 stats law barring
lawsuits against manufacturers and
sellers of products that are commonly
known to be inherently unsafe.
Kopp and the Assembly cosponsor.
Democrat Kevin Shelley of San
Ftencisco, said Monday that the bill
must become law if Califbmians are to
fully participate in the proposed set-
tlement reached between the tobacco
industry and attorneys general from
40 sates, including California.
The proposed 1360 billion settle-
ment would provide unprecedented
restrictions on cigarettes in
for sharp limits on tobacco makers' lia-
bility in lawsuits.
The bill has cleared the
Legislature once, but was returned at
the request of Gov. Pete Wilson. The
Republican governor wanted to clarify
that the intent was to allow actions
against tobacco companies, not relat-
ed businesses such as shippers, whole-
salers or retail stores.
Kopp said tobacco manufacturers
saw the governor's request � an
opportunity to kid the bill, and redou-
bled already vigorous lobbying efforts
against it.
Kopp said tobacco companies went
so far as to try and build an alliance
with financially struggling counties,
arguing that the more money that
goes to individual plaintiffs, the less
there will be for lock governments.
Their efforts are typical; their
efforts are full of sophistry and deceit-
ful arguments Kopp said.
"Whose health are we going to pro-
tect?" Shelley added. "The health of
ordinary Califbmians, or the health cf
the tobacco industry?"
Tobacco Institute spokesman
Walker Merryman said the industry
feds no change in the Jaw is necessary
for Califbmians to benefit from the
settlement, because ail states will
receive reimbursement for the costs
of treating sick soakers once the set-
dement becomes final.
Merryman acknowledged that no
individual smoker in California would
be able to pursue a claim against the
industry unless the law is changed.
But he said allowing such suits would
"clog the courts with groundless liti-
"We've consistently urged that this
legislation be rejected he said.
The bill, amended to resolve
Wilson's objections, has passed the
Senate on a vote of 28-9. Shelley said
he would seek an early vote in the
Assembly, which returned Monday
from its summer recess.
The bill only narrowly passed the
Assembly in its first incarnation, on a
vote of 42-19.
If the bill makes it back to the gov-
ernor's desk with the changes he
requested, Wilson is expected to sign
it, spokesman Steve Tatum said.
Wilson has already signed into law
a bill by Assembly Speaker Cruz
Bustamante, D-Fresno, that stipulates
that the 1987 law does not bar the
state from filing a suit seeking reim-
bursement for the cost of treating
indigent Califbmians for tobacco-
related illnesses.
School officials tone down party image, but school still growing
WILMINGTON (AP) - A few years
ago, officials at the University of
North Carolina at Wilmington mar-
keted their school with pamphlets
picturing students in a convertible, a
surfboard jutting from the back seat.
Those days are gone, school
administrators say.
Under Chancellor James Leutze,
UNCW has toned down its image as a
seaside party school and beefed up

its brightest freshman class.
Over the past few years, this 650-
acre campus of towering pines just a
few miles from the Atlantic Ocean
and the Cape Fear River has become
the fastest-growing in the University
of North Carolina system.
As UNCW turns 50 this year, sup-
porters turn to marry points of pride,
including an undergraduate marine
science department ranked fifth in
the world; an education college that is
a statewide model for its work with
public schools, and a creative writing
program that has lured noted writers.
Next month, UNCW breaks
ground on a new marine research cen-
ter and then starts construction of
two 100-studcnt dorms. Also under
way are plans for a 63,000-square-foot
student recreation center featuring an
indoor climbing wail.
"I see UNCW as a work in
progress says Leutze, a popular
Chapel Hill history professor for 19
years who was a top contender this
year for the presidency of the16-canv
pus UNC system. "It is a work in

With its "UNC by the Sea" nick-
name, UNCWs proximity to the
ocean has long been the school's boon
and bane
Despite the success of its marine
science department, the school has
long suffered from perceptions that
students came here not to hit the
books, but to hit the beaches.
While trying to tone down that
image, school officials still admit it
can be a huge advantage.
Incoming freshman Randy Mickle
came to UNCW to study business.
But spreading his towel just south of
the Oceanic pier at Wrightsvillc

chair of the University of Minnesota
English department after 27 years to
take the same position in Wilmington.
"Let's face it, 27 winters is
enough, and I've always wanted to

he unabashedly used Wilmington's
weather and waves to lure Pulitzer

By making the environment a key
part of the curriculum - both in the
sciences and humanities - the univer-
sity also has been able to lure the best
students and faculty to the beach.
"A lot of the sharp marine biology
students arc surfers and kayakcrs, and
they have found the balance between
time in the water and time in class,
and they do wdl English professor
Bill Atwill says.
But besides selling the lifestyle.
UNCWs strategy tor improving acad-
emics - putting big resources into a
small number of disciplines to try to
make them the best - appears to be
paying off.
Department heads say thdr facul-
ty openings arc drawing more and
better applicants. The student body's
average grade point average has,
jumped a letter grade. And enroll-
ment is growing.
The university's enrollment is pro-
jected to jump from just over 9,000 to
12,500 by the year 2005.

is happening too fast at a school that

NASA: Mir crew loses use of both oxygen-generating systems
(AP)-The three men aboard Russia's
run-down Mir space station were
left without any way to generate
oxygen Monday after both their pri-
mary and backup systems failed, at
least temporarily.
U.S. and Russian space officials
said they wouldn't know whether
the two Russian cosmonauts and one
.American astronaut on board were
able to fix either of the oxygen-pro-
ducing devices until the next sched-

Nonetheless, one N.ASA official
called it a potentially serious prob-

could be no problem, or it could be a

What's more, N.ASA astronaut

supply by using oxygen tanks set
aside for upcoming spacewalks.
NASA officials said they did not

There have been repeated prob-
lems with the new Elektron genera-
tor, carried up by space shuttle
Atlantis in May. But this is the first
time since February that a crew has
had serious trouble with the backup
system, in which solid-fuel canisters
are ignited to produce oxygen.
One of these canisters burst into
flames in February, filling the station
with smoke and almost causing the
crew to evacuate.
The cosmonauts were trying to
ignite a canister, or candle. Monday
when the system failed. They
replaced the igniter mechanism but
the canister still would not burn.
"This may be nothing more com-
plicated than putting a new candle
into the mechanism and they're
back in business said another
N.ASA spokesman, Rob Navias.
There was a bit of good news
Monday aboard Mir.
Commander Anatoly Solovyov
reported that power was flowing
through the makeshift hatch that he
and Pavel Vinogradov installed dur-
ing an internal spacewalk Friday to
restore power.
Indeed, Russian flight controllers
verified that an additional 40 amps
of electricity were flowing into the
station. But commands sent to move

module were unsuccessful.

Until Monday, the station had
been flying at half-power as a result
of the June 25 collision with an
unmanned cargo ship.
Russian space officials, mean-
while, disclosed Monday that the
collision may have left as many as
seven tiny holes in the sealed-off
Spektr lab module.
The head of the Russian Space
.Agency, Yuri Kbptev, said the cargo
ship bounced off Mir seven times.
Space officials previously said
they believed only one or two holes
were punched in the Spektr module.

The university has clearly stated
that they have inspected the project
from the beginning and in a recent
press release announced the project
would be delayed while additional
repairs are made.
One repair that will be made is
to modify steps in the raker beams
that support the seat risers for a pre-
cise fit. This repair is necessary
because the placement of concrete
involves rough construction and the
risers must fit exactly.
Another repair is to fill in areas
where the concrete did not fully
envelop the reinforcing steel.
Previous repairs did not account
for the expansion and contraction
with the changes in temperature
therefore this modification must be
made as well.
Because of required repairs the
stadium will not be ready for the
Wake Forest game or the South
Carolina game planned for Sept.20.

the work done right. We intend for

ity with no problems when it opens.

The expansion project on Dowdy-ficklen stadium has been delayed, and it will not be ready
for the first home game as originally promised. There have been changes in contractors, acci-
dents have happened, and the safety of the expanded seating is in question.
While accidents and delays can happen on any construction site, it seems to us that we've
heard something like this before.
Didn't the university promise us that the Student Recreation Center would be ready about
3) year before it actually opened? What about the new Joyner addition?
It seems to us that the university needs to estimate its construction time better. With all
the thousands and even millions of dollars being spent on all the various construction projects
On an ongoing basis, can't the university afford an educated opinion, as opposed to a guess?
We understand that the university is under a lot of pressure to provide the facilities and ser-
vices offered by other schools of a comparable size, and wants to be able to tell incoming fresh-
man that yes, we will have an expanded and improved library by the time you get here, and
yes, we will have the biggest and best fitness center for miles around.
There is also financial pressure involved. Take the case of the stadium expansion for an
example. Every time that we have a home game, an astronomical amount of money is spent on
this campus and in this town. The people who sell ECU merchandise, the owners of hotels,
restaurants, and so many more profit from football games. With expanded seating in the stadi-
um, ECU will be able to host bigger name teams, sell more tickets, and make more money for
fhe school and the town. So it is understandable that the University wants to get this stadium
project done.
But is it really worth it? With all that the university stands to gain from this expanded sta-
dium, all the problems that have been associated with the project seem to balance the scales.
Which way will they tip when the whole thing is finally finished?
The fact that this stadium expansion is so important would seem to indicate the necessity
�jbr doing it right. Are all construction projects really this trouble-ridden? Thousands of peo-
ple will be sitting on these high-rise seats for years to come, including ourselves, our fellow stu-
dents, faculty and alumni. All of us would like to think that everyone who sits in those seats
will be able to do so without worry. But given all the problems to date, will we be completely
The University has promised that doing a thorough, safe construction job is their first pri-
ority, and that nothing else will pressure or influence them to rush it at an unsafe pace. We
believe that they wouldn't want to do anything that would damage their reputation, and that
they do want to be safe.
With other projects being planned all the time, with projected completion dates ranging
from a few months from now and into the next century, we only wonder if the university will
estimate their working time any better in the future. If they could only be safe and punctual
at the same time, that would be even better.
Meat recall makes vegetarianism look good
like beef. I like to eat meat,
but do we really need to eat
so much? The whole issue
boils down to a simple ques-
tion: Is meat needed in our
diet?" The answer is
Let me start off by saying I eat
meat. That said, uc �Jiall get down
to the nitty-gritty. It is time to
rethink an old idea whose time is
come. The idea is that of being a
Recently 25 million pounds of
beef were recalled. The recall was
issued by the Food and Drug
Administration. The meat is suppos-
edly contaminated with E-coli bac-
teria. Perhaps now is a good time to
rethink our love affair with meat.
Now don't get me wrong, I like
beef. I like to eat meat, but do we
really need to eat so much? The
whole issue boils down to a simple
question: "Is meat needed in our
diet? The answer is muddled.
Some interesting facts appear
when we look at those with reduc-
tions in their meat intake. In
Denmark during World War I, the
citizens had their meat imports
reduced by 30 percent. The death
rate fell 30 percent over the same
time period.
A study of Seventh Day
Adventist vegetarians and non-vege-
tarians produced some not-so-sur-
prising results. The non-vegetarians
had a three times greater risk of
developing heart disease than the
Numerous vegan, and vegetarian
colonies exist in the United States
these colonies survive without meat
and some without any animal by-
products; cheese, milk, etc. The
meat industry makes the argument
we need meat for its high protein
Fact is, when compared to other
plants, meat lacks the sustenance.
Most meat contains only 20-25 per-
cent protein by weight. This puts
meat in the middle of the food spec-
trum when it comes to protein.
Eating nuts and beans will get you
the same amount of protein.
In general, Americans eat too
much protein� a full 50 to 100 per-
cent more than is needed. Too much
protein is not good for the body
Studies have shown that
populations with high intakes of
animal protein have an increased risk
of colon cancer. Too much protein
also has adverse effects upon the
Eating too much protein brings
high levels of nitrogen into the body.
The excess nitrogen is taken out by
the kidneys. This places an unneed-
ed strain upon the kidneys. People
with kidney disease are encouraged
to eat low protein diets.
Sure, a good steak is tops on my
list when I go to a restaurant. A good
rich dessert is also high on the food
chain when I go out to eat. The
problem is that too much of a good
thing is bad for the heart, kidneys
and numerous other parts of the
body. The meat, like the dessert,
should be eaten in moderation.
I am not advocating a complete
and total ban on eating meat. All I
am asking is to look at vegetables
and fruits in another light and
rethink considering animals as food.

In many ways, college is a sur-
vival game, survival of the fittest,
and it is a game that can be won (I
am living proof that obtaining a
degree is possible). However, there
is a balance. Each person has their
own balance between social life and
academic life, and the task too
many find daunting is the accom-
plishment of this balance.
The question you have to ask
yourself is this: Do you really want
a college degree?
If yes, then it helps to clearly
define why and for what you want a
degree. Clearly defined goals clean
the path to clear progress. Know
what you want, then you can pro-
cure it. This is not difficult to
It's when you don't know what
you want that you are susceptible
to trouble. If you're not sure you
want a college degree or you don't
know in what you want a degree,
then you're in a vulnerable position.
I say this to make you think.

You have to understand that dur-

dom you've probably ever had
before. These are polar opposites
that must be handled delicately.
You are a human being who has
wants, needs and desires; sadness,
elation and contentment. You are a
product of your past trying to make
sense of your present. Trying to
decide what you want four or five

ness is the highest goal for human
beings Know thyself. Succeed.
Become life. It is your choice.

There is no way that the people of
North Carolina care at all about their
environment. Let's define environ-
ment. The environment is composed
of the air, the water and the land. First
of all, let's examine the air which all of
us need to breathe into our lungs in
order to stay alive. The N.C. humans
relate to their air by racing through it
in their fossil fuel burning machines,
using up oxygen while leaving behind
a trail of poisonous gases. Another way
the destructive North Carolinians
abuse their air is by putting in huge
corporate hog farms in river water-
sheds (note: this is the same principle
as water off a duck's back except sub-
stitute toxic airborne hog waste parti-
cles for breathable air).
Notice to anybody under 25 years
old: you are not a complete jerk yet
like most Americans between 25 and
50 years old who were fully educated
about the dangers of pollution when
they attended high school, when the
sky was still blue instead of dirty yel-
Now we could talk about pure
water, but since you can't find any, call
up the N.C. Department of Natural
Resources and Environmental Health
and ask them for some. You won't get
a straight answer or pure water, but at
least you'll be wasting their time!
Finally, we need to examine the
land. First, the great hardwood forests
of eastern North Carolina are sitting
in a big fat pile of wood chips at the
state port terminal. Where these
forests once were now stand corpo-
rate farms growing plenty of com to
feed big fat hogs, which are lots of big
fat waste to destroy our once beauti-
ful river estuaries and create a plague
for you at home. Pretty glamorous,
isn't it? I guess if you keep sitting
around and acting like sheep, then
things will just get worse.

movie review
Fall forward into the movie season
The summer movie season is on its last breath, and before you know it such sib-
lingblockbusters as Men in Btar and Air tone Om vnU be �rf �j
readv for video. For the most part, the summer of'97 proved to be ����'
fun flicks, nothing extraordinary or too thought-provoking, but still very enter-
ta"Much of that will change once the fall weather sets in. The fall movie season
is creeping its way into our lives, and that typically means more serious ene-
ma that shoots for the gold, na.nelv the Academy Award.
Like last summer, the fall will be packed with more movies than any one
human being should watch. Therefore. I offer a short but efficient guide to what
the next phase in cinema holds for its audiences. ,
Seven Years in T,lt - Brad Pitt may have talked trash about his last film Ike
Dmtt (Men. but that is not likely to happen with his latest project. Based or, the
memoirs o Heinrich Harrer (played by Pitt), this film follows the Manures of
an Austrian mountaineer who escapes a World War 1 prisoncamp and ends up
with a new perspective on life when he meets the Dala. Lama. This is a film
Pitt cares for deeply, so at least expect some solid effort. t

skills to displav the same lyrical poetry that powered ARwer Runs Throughly
OUFrielis Jack Nicholson tones down his act a bit to play a novelist who
dogsfts his friend's spoiled pet. Along the way, the love bug b.tes Nicholson as

While the basic premise may sound bonng, watching Nicholson act real
human emotion instead of showing off is never dull.

Baker serves safe ska net
Egg jerky conquers the net
It's a special day when clubs in Greenville manage to draw bands that usually
won't leave the comfort zone of the Triangle area. It was supposed to be such a
Surdav night when the Knoxville based funk band Gran Torino was scheduled
to perform at Peasant's Cafe. Woefully, their van broke down m and they
hadftrta?etyhforSpe�ant's, the ska group Baker was able to take the stage in
Gran Torino's place. Baker's stage appearance was impressive as seven band
members piled onto Peasant's small corner stage.
Hailing all the way from Richmond, four horn players, a drummer, a bass play-
er and a guitaristlead singer started off a very promising ska-dominated set. The
hom section was excellent. The two sax players, trombone player and trumpeter
were as together as a high school marching band (hmmm?), and the rest of the
band was definitely proficient. They sounded great and were fun to watch but
as the set went on! their material lost its fresh edge and started to sound hke a
Bosstones CD on repeat. Don't get me wrong, the Bosstones are a good ska band,
and so is Baker. But as the set neared its end, so did .ts ong.nal.ty
Baker was seven guys with short hair wearmg khak. shorts and N.kes who
seemed to like ska music and enjoyed playing it. In general, the Peasant s crowd
was very responsive to the band and obviously had a great time dancing around
and singing along to the couple of Bosstones covers that they played.
fcter put forth a great effort and they seem like the kind of band that could
do very well in Greenville, especially at parties. They got involved with the small
crowd surrounding the dance floor and were really interested in getting every-
one to come down to the front and dance their asses off. It was great tha the
band was so energetic and enthusiastic about their music, which are qualities
that make Baker a definite crowd pleaser.

other than Rasputin as the main villain, this is one cartoon
that demands attention. Disney is fighting back by re-
releasing The Uttle Mermaid the same day that Anastasia
comes out. Talk about poor sportsmanship.
Armistad - Steven Spielberg's first attempt at serious
drama since Schmdler's List concerns the revolt of 52 West
Africans imprisoned on the slave ship Armistad. The cast is
exceptional, featuring the likes of Anthony Hopkins and
Pete Postlethwaite, and Spielberg is no spring chicken
when it comes to doing solid work.
Titanic - Bad publicity about the high costs of making
this historic epic has plagued James Cameron's ambitious
production. Still, advance word of mouth indicates that the
film itself is going to be fantastic. Look for Leonardo
DiCaprio, Bill Paxton, Kate Winslet and Billy Zane as the
passengers in jeopardy.
Jackie Brown - The long-awaited follow-up to Pulp Fiction
will soon be here. Quentin Tarantino comes out of hiding

Find out what counseling center is all about
Students encounter many challenges during their college years, and there are
nany orjanizations and offices on campus to help them cope with those cnal-
engcs. One of those offices is the Center for Counseling and Student
evelopment. j
Dr. Nancy Badger, a counselor for the Center, believes that most students
on't know very much about the Center's function on campus.
"We did a survey last year and found out the majority of students don t know
�rhat services we provide Badger said. "We provide individual counseling,
oup counseling and workshops
The workshops cover such topics as academic success, career exploration
choosing a major, stress management and others. Many of the workshops are held
in the Counseling Center, but others are conducted in residence halls, soronty
and fraternity houses, and in classes in an attempt to reach as many students as
possible. . , .
uWe want students to know what kind of issues they may encounter during
the year and give them some tips on how to handle them Badger said.
The Center also receives requests from groups to conduct workshops that are
custom-designed to fit a particular purpose, such as orientation sessions for vol-
unteer groups. . .
"We're always willing to be there, as long as it has to do with counseling. And
if it is outside our area of expertise, we can refer them to someone else who can
help Badger said.
Individual counseling sessions arc also available at the Center. Badger said
many students are initially uncertain about requesting counseling. In the past,
need for counseling held a negative connotation for many people. But that
stereotype has changed. he said.
"You no longer have t have serious problems to get counseling. 1 hat stigma
is gone Badger said. "It can be an academic or career concern, as well as some-
thing personal �� !
According to Badger, r e reasons for requesting an individual counseling ses-
sion varv from having tro ble with a class to dealing with a recently ended rela-
tionship or a death in the .amity. Students are encouraged to contact the Center
for help on anv issue of cmcem to them. � -
The entrance to the Center is around the corner from the Wnght Plaqe.
Students who want more information about workshops, individual and group
counseling sessions, or any other sr vices the center provides, can visit the office

Jeff Buckley's passion will be missed
The East Carolinian
John n w i s
This morning I was sitting in the Percolator, which in the mornings is just lik
every coffee shop in America. The sun filters through the department store win-
dows while I sip on my too hot, too strong coffee listening to Tim and Sean talk
'about Amsterdam. Tim leaves and I talk to Sean momentarily- about Jeff
fluckley, one of the most promising young singersongwriters to hit the music
scene in the past five years. The conversation is somber; Bucklev passed awav
'this summer. His body was found floating in the Mississippi river; apparently
'Uhe New York resident went swimming unaware of the river's strong pull. Sean
looks away at the windows when I mention Buckley's passionate songs and we
agree that such passion is rare in music these days.
Oddly enough I had a similar conversation in another coffee shop. Cafe
Elliston, in Nashville, Tennessee about two weeks ago. 1 was talking to a fellow
"named Rich who, it turned out was a songwriter himself and a great fan of
Buckley. Like Sean, Rich looked away when talking about him. Rich wrote a
poem about Buckley's death, w hich he read later at a quiet poetry reading.
Buckley's musical career was short-lived; his one album, Grace, was never
i popular on the radio but has had wide influence on many a songwriter. So I've
j been listening to Grace again, soaking myself in its dark wet atmosphere, sw im-
Iming in its tide, wondering silly young man wonderings about fate and destiny
and irony; asking questions that have no answers, like "Why him?" Yes, it's
! cheesy and romantic, but I can't help myself.
Grace hit the tecords stores a scant three years ago with little fanfare.
LCharged with passion and melancholy, the album garnered strong support from
critics and an elite group of fanatic listeners. The entire album featured
Buckley's relatively unpracticed. raw backup bund that he preferred over skilled
studio musicians selected by record labels, licd with Buckley's unconven-
tional songvvriting and his Robert PtantBono-esque sense of grandeur, the
album is a simultaneously stirring and soothing collection of love affairs.
"Mojo Pin the first track comes off like one of Zeppelin's expansive rock
epics (think "Kashmir"). The title track, "Grace" rings spookily when Buckley
declares "It's my time coming I'm not afraid, afraid to die. m fading voice
sings "Last Goodbye" is a rising anthem propelled l Mick Grondahl's puls-
ing bass line and Buckley's urgent vocals. So ReaJ" pounds like a mixture of
Chris Isaac and Sonic buth. This song of lost love drifts spaeily amidst wet
reverb and siren guitars. Soaring along, the listener is ehided to a quiet halt with
Buckley's bracing, sweltering cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah "Lover, I
Should Have Come Over" is dark sweet drink of a ballad, while "Corpus Christi
Carol" features Buckley's burning falsetto interpreting the traditional hymn.
"Eternal Life" wakes the dead with its psycho-grunge guitar and jolted surreal
imagery. "Dream Brother" closes the
album on a quiet note, glowing with
Edge-like guitar landscapes and rhap-
sodic vocals.
Most artists don't make records
this good ten years into their careers.
On Gran. Buckley managed to capture
passion and bled it into his old-soul
songvvriting with a rare humble charis-
ma. I hate to be cliched and mention
what a shame and loss his death is, but
its true. Jeff Buckley's passion will be
sorely missed in nation as drab as ours
has become.
Jeff Buckley accomplished a lot in a much
too short life.

Giants loss gives Dodgers lead in West
PITTSBURGH - Jermainc Allensworth's high-hop single broke a tie in a
four-run eighth inning and Pittsburgh swept San Francisco to drop the
Giants into second place for the first time in 106 days, winning 9-6 Sunday San
Francisco's fourth loss in five games and the Dodgers' 5-1 victory in Philadelphia
pushed the Giants out of the NL Wat lead they had held since May 10. The
Giants have been in first place all but 23 days. The three-game sweep matches
the Giants' longest losing streak of the season.

pated in the minimum number of meets during the 1995- academic year. The
1-year probation will be imposed beginning this fall. The NCAA requires a
women's track team to participate in at least 12 indoor and outdoor meets dur-
ing the year, including at least 4 indoor and 4 outdoor meets. Also, at least 14
members must participate to be counted as a team.
In 5 meets during the winter and spring of 19, the NCAA found Southern
Miss had less than 14 women compete because of injuries and sickness.
Southern Miss also was cited for misinterpreting an NCAA bylaw that left
the school 1 short of satisfying the minimum number of meets. -
NCAA looks to shorten long overtimes

football in 1996, gets, tweaking in "97: mandatory two-point conversion

In other words, no game-prolonging, close-to-automatic extra-point Kicks.
It's an effort, rules committee chairman Vince Dooley
says, "to help protect the players against the possibility of haying to play in
extraordinarily long games in which they are more likely to be injured
in NCAA Division I-A last season, four of 26 overtime games lasted more
than two extra period Three Division I-AA games went more than two, includ-
ing Florida A&M's five-hour, 59-58 victory vs. Hampton in six OTs.
PATs, successful 94 of the time, were the safest way to force another peri-
od. The two-point success rate was 44.7 a year ago.
The committee voted to declare a tie if an overtime game cannot be com-
pleted because of weather, darkness or other conditions.
Panthers give up on holdout Kevin Greene
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Kevin Greene's bid to get more money out of the
Carolina Panthers ended Sunday when the ream released the NFI'a 19 sacks

Rugby players look

The ECU rugby team has only just-
begun practicing, but they are already
hungry for the Fall 1997 season. After
a spring season that brought both vic-

changes on both mental and physical
levels. They hope that the changes
will fire up both the veterans and the
newcomers to the team.
The rugby team had problems in
the spring season with a shortage of
players to substitute and mediocre

Health Center extends services
Tracy Laibach
The University Health Center and Recreational
Services will be working hand in hand this Fall as
a Sports Medicine Clinic will be offered to all stu-
dents for the first time in ECU history.
Open to any student with a sports or exercise
related injury, the program will be held in the
Student Health
Center and will
provide educa-
tional tools as
well as free
medical assess-
ments for those
in need.
According to
Dr. Tome De
Beck, clinical
director of ECU -
Services, the
clinic will pro-
vide students
with many ser-
vices that have
not been avail-
able on campus
in the past.
"The clinic will
be developed
into a jmpre-
hensivc pro-
gram, where
students will
have a chance
to be informed
about injuries-
and ask any
questions" they
may have De
Beck said.
"With the
expansion of

more and more

to working out, result-
ing in more injuries that
require professional
medical attention. The
new sports medicine
program has been creat-
ed to provide just that
When the Student
Rec Center opened its
doors in January, the
number of students
exercising on campus
sky rocketed to a boom-
ing 63.9 percent, with
anywhere from 1,900 to
2,500 students striving
for a healthier lifestyle
on a daily basis.
Aside from the goal
to educate, the clinic
will also provide physi-
cal therapy and rehabili-
tation programs. In a
partnership effort, doc-
tors from the Family
Practice Center will join
University physicians and therapists to deliver the
best possible care for ECU students.
Dr. John Seigel, team physician for ECU foot-
ball, along with Dr. Sam Adkins and Dr. George
Poehlman of the Family Practice Center will be
among t.he; doctors tq turn to for assistance.
According to De Beck, the whole idea of the
program is focused on providing equal attention
for all ECU athletes.
"The scholar athletes at ECU get tons of
attention and privileges, De Beck said. "But 95
percent of the athletes here are involved with
recreational and intramural programs. The clinic
will give these athletes the opportunities and
same privileges rhat they deserve
Nancy Mize, director of ECU Department of
Recreational Services, said that the clinic will
help many students make responsible decisions
concerning their athletic related injuries.
"The new Sports Medicine program, is a
tremendous step in the right direction for this
university Mize said. "In looking at the history of
recreational programs, this service is one that has
always been a void on campus. I expect that a
great number of students will be eager to partici-
pate and take advanrage of what is being offered
Dr. John Seigel checks for any sports injuries in senior Bridget Roberts. This service
.will be open to ail students with any kind of sports injuries.
Health Educator and ECU alumni Heather
Zophy was one of many to dedicate time and
effort to the program's development.
"The clinic is an excellent way to provide stu-
dents with the information they need concerning
their injuries and medical needs Zophy said.
"Whether a student has a current or past injury, a
nagging ache or pain, or even a medical question
we can help
The program's initial clinic will be held today.
Athletic trainers and therapists will be available to
assist students between the hours of 1:30 - 4 p.m.
on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Appointments are highly encouraged and can be
arranged by calling Health Services at 328-6841.
De Beck is hoping the clinic will open new
doors for the students involved with the ECU
Sports Medicine Program. Striving for degrees in
exercise and sport science, the students could
.learn a lot and get some hands on experience
through such an opportunity.
"We would love to have the Sports Medicine
students join us De Beck said. "Part of our mis-
sion is to educate, and it would be a nice way to
have different parts of the university come
Cheerleaders work hard for fans
There is more than meets the eye to the ECU cheerleading squad.
Although cheerleading does require an individual to shout, cheer, jump and
scream, it
also requires flexibility, stamina, physical endurance and tumbling skills. A
potential cheerer does not need any prior gymnastic or dance background, but
it does help, as second-year coach Paula Corbett said.
"We need well- rounded cheercrs who can tumble, cheer and jump equally
well Corbett said.
Cheerleading is a sp art with both varsity and junior varsity teams. Unlike any
other varsity team, varsity cheerleaders are not on scholarship. Last year a pro-
posal for book buying was presented, but still has not lieen approved yet. This
is to remind the squad that they will be rewarded for good academic perfor-
mance. If passed, returning students with a minimum grade point average
(GPA) of 2.0 will receive S150 and $50 thereafter for noteworthy grades.
"Academics are the first priority Corbett said. "Some squad members work
on top of school and cheering and still maintain a GPA of 3.4, so we try to reward
them for that
Even though varsity cheerleaders are not granted scholarships, video tapes,
phone calls and letters still pour in.
"I have even gotten letters and phone calls from agents and I also get things
from people who are sophomores and
juniors in high school Corbett said.
"Two-hundred kids come and see me
every year, it's amazing how much
interest there is in cheerleading
Because the'squad does not give our
scholarships, a lot of recruiting is done
and outstanding tryout performers are
chosen. The junior varsity team is cho-
sen almost entirely on the tryout basis.
"We need to find the princess and the
prince who will equal to the king of the
mountain Corbett said about picking
the right combination of guys and girls.
Varsity cheerleaders do have the bond
that most varsity teams develop over a
season. Because they are together most

Now with the Pirates being in Conference USA for football, the cheerlead-
ing squad is excited and this also gives them the opportunity to add new ele-
ments to their routines.

The East Carolinian
Former athletes announced as inductees into ECU Hall of Fame
Bill Cain, Paul Gay, Marcia Girvcn and
Cary Godette have been selected as the
1997 inductees into the ECU Athletics
Hall of Fame.
Bill Cain, the Pirate Athletics
Director from 1975 to 1980, has been
the only ECU alumnus to serve in that
capacity. Cain's relationship with ECU
spans over four decades as a student-
athlete, coach, administrator and edu-
cator. An offensive and defensive end
for the 1957-59 Pirate football teams,
Cain, a Rockingham native, served as
co-captain on the 1959 squad, earning
All-Carolinas conference honors. After
graduating in 1960 with a bachelor's
degree in HealthPhysical Education,
Cain continued his studies at East
Carolina, earning a master's in
Education. After coaching and teaching
in the high school ranks, Cain returned
to ECU in 1968 as head freshman foot-
ball coach and recruiter. For the next
several years, he held various coaching
and administrative positions within the
athletics department, and was named
Director of Athletics in 1975. Under
Cain's leadership, Dowdy-Rcklen
Stadium underwent a major expansion
project in 1977-78, boosting capacity
from 20,000 to 35,000 and adding a

Despite the problems they faced
last season, the rugby team kept a

"A lot of the younger guys on the
team got experience in those later
games Washburn said.
The veteran members of the team
are also assembling a player manual
for the younger players. It will include
the history of rugby, its rules, and,
most importantly, a playbook, similar
to the books given to football players.
The turnout at practice has been
outstanding so far. There have already
been 12 so far and the number is
expected to swell to 20. The team
pursued more aggressive recruiting
practices that undoubtedly con-
tributed to the swelled ranks.

key roles in the development of the
ECU Athletics Hall of Fame and the
Pirate Club. Cain is currently working
at the university as interim chair of the
Department of Exercise and Sport
Science in the School of Health and
Human Performance. He and his wife,
Frances, reside in Greenville.
Paul Gay was a multi-sport student-
athlete at East Carolina College from
1951-55. A halfback on the football
team from 1951-53, Gay was named All-
State and All-North State Conference
during the 1953 season. The Wilson,
N.C. native also played baseball, bas-
ketball, and golf for the Pirates. After
graduation, Gay coached and taught
numerous sports and subjects at
Lancaster High School in Lancaster,
S.C Broughton High School in
Raleigh, N.C, and Sanford Central
High School in Sanford, N.C. He was
at Sanford Central for 25 years, serving
as a biology and physical education
teacher, head football coach, and athlet-
ics director. As football coach, Gay led
his teams to eight conference champi-
onships, four co-state championships,
and one state championship. In 1973 he
was named the North Carolina Coach of
the Year by the Associated Press. The
Sanford community honored Gay by
renaming the Sanford Central football
stadium the "Paul B. Gay Stadium
Gay has also been inducted into the
North Carolina High School Athletic
.Association Hall of Fame. He and his
wife, Jan, also an ECC graduate, cur-
rently live in Sanford, where Gay works
in insurance sales.
Marcia Girven becomes the eighth
ECU women's basketball player to be
inducted into the ECU Athletics Hall
of Fame. Girven, a native of Dale City,
Va was a four-year starter for the Lady
Pirates, and broke numerous records
that still stand today. She holds the
record for most game appearances (120)
and most games started (117). She was
just the second player to record over
1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in her
career. (Girven's teammate and fellow
Hall of Famer Rosie Thompson was the
first.) No other Lady Pirate has accom-
plished this feat since. Girven is also
ECU's record-holder in blocked shots
for a single game (12), season (95), and
career (212). Chosen as the Best All-
Around Player during her junior and
senior seasons, Girven was also voted
1980-81 MVP by her teammates. The
1980-81 squad went 22-7 and finished
the season ranked 17 in the country
after a birth in the AIAW Regionals.

Pirates from 1972-76. An All-Amenta
defensive end in 1976, Godette record-
ed 54 tackles, including 10 quarterback
sacks and 16 tackles for loss. His accom-
plishments earned him an invitation to
the 1976 American Bowl in Tampa, Fla.
Godette also captured numerous hon-
ors prior to his 1976 season. He was
named Outstanding freshman in 1972,
an All-Southern Conference selection
three times, an All-State selection
twice, 1975 MVP and Best Defensive
Player, and honorable mention AP All-

competition. Since the squad has to
raise its own money to attend such
events, the squad voted not to go.
This past summer at camp in Myrtle
Beach, the squad got another offer to
go to the NCA national competition
in Daytona Beach this April.
And this year the squad is going
to compete. The squad achieved
very high ranks at the camp. The
Pirates were voted best all around by
the camp staff, most collegiate by-
other cheerleaders and the second-
best fight song. Four Ail-American
cheerleaders were named out of 60
Three of those Ail-Americans
were from East Carolina. These peo-
ple are Will Cooper. Ian Propsr and
Ragan Tayfoe. The Pirates were also
voted best all-around for its mascots.
Two All-American mascots are Laura
Carr and Jim Baker.
Although fund raising is the only
way the squad can raise money, they
are only allowed one fund raiser a
year. Money can also be donated, but
it must be donated to the Pirate
Club for the cheerleading squad.
And of the total earnings, half must
go to the dance team and the other
half is for the cheerleading squad.
The squad, is determined to go to
nationals this year and Corbett has
some goals for the squad.
"I expect them to finish in the
top 10, they have that potential, so
the key is to set the goal and stay
with it
So the next time you sec a cheer-
leading squad, namely the Pirates,
take time to appreciate all the long
hours of practice that goes into prac-
ticing routines, jumps, tumbles and
perfecting a pyramid. Remember,
cheerleaders arc athletes, too.

The East Carolinian
Carolina Panthers make
changes on roster
CHARLOTTE (AP) - Less than
eight months removed from the NFC
championship game, the Carolina
Panthers don't look like they're head-
ed back in that direction any time
They played poorly throughout an
exhibition season that ended without
them coming close to winning a single-
game. They lost 19 NFL sacks
leader Kevin Greene to a contract dis-
pute. Their highest-drafted lineman
ever has taken another fall from grace,
this time by losing his starting job to
the last plaver chosen in the 12th and
final round of the 1992 draft. And
quarterback Kerry Collins reportedlv
was punched by one teammate and
used a racial epithet to describe
another - all in the same night.
"It's another day in the life and
times of professional athletes out-
side linebacker Lamar Lathon said
Monday. "Things like this go on. What
you would not like to happen is stuff
to get out in the public
Now that Carolina's problems are
on display for all to see. the Panthers
are trying to prevent them from
becoming a distraction as they pre-
pare to open their third season
Sunday at home against the
Washington Redskins.
"We have won without a lot ot tal-
ent around here because we were a
close-knit team and a close-knit fami-
ly Lathon said. "And we want to con-
tinue to be that way"
The Panthers, who went 12-4 last
year and won the NFC West,
preached patience as thev muddled
through an 0-4 exhibition season in
which they were outscorcd 103-51.
The team's patience was tested
when Greene refused to report for a
minieamp in June, starting a 75-diy
holdout that ended Sundav with the
Panthers releasing him and signing
Renaldo Turnbull.
The changes didn't end there. On
Monday, Matt Elliott, the "Mr.
Irrelevant" of the 1992 draft who
joined the Panthers as a free agent in
1995. was promoted to starting lett
guard. He replaced Blake
Rrockermever. the 29th overall pick in
the 1995 draft. Brockermeyer original-
ly was a left tackle for Carolina but
had trouble there and was mined to
the right side. That didn't work out.
either, so the Panthers switched him
to left guard in the offseason. Now
he's not starting anywhere.
Nothing the team has done this
summer, though, has caused as much
of a stir as Collins' actions on the final
night of the team's training camp ear-
lier this month at Wofford College in
Spartanburg. S.C.
One newspaper reported Sunday
that Collins was punched in the face
by tackle Norberto Davidds-Garrido
at a Spartanburg bar. Another paper
said that later that same night.
Collins, who is white, directed a racial
epithet at wide receiver Muhsin
Muhammad, who is black, while the
two were in a dorm room at Wottord.
Coach l)om Capers said Sundav
night that he had spoken with all par-
ties involved and that all necessary
apologies had been made.
Davidds-Garrido and Muhammad
both met with reporters Monday, and
both players disputed the newspaper
Davidds-Garrido said he and
Collins were in a dorm room on cam-
pus - not drinking at a Spartanburg bar
- when the quarterback was struck.
Davidds-Garrido said he and Collins
were wrestling playfully and that he
accidentally poked Collins under one
"Me and Kcrrv. we're square, he-
said. "We talked alxur it. We knew it
was just an accident. It's nothing
Muhammad said Collins did not
direct anv epithets at him.
"I don't know how certain people
got the information that they got. but
the information thes got was false,
he said. "1 don't even understand how
mv name was brought up into it in the
fashion that it was
Muhammad said (Papers felt it was
necessary to speak to several players
"because obviously as reported there
was some type of statement made
that was offensive to some people on
the team. But the issue was resolved.
Collins underwent surgery
Mondav morning to have four plates
removed from his jaw. which was bro-
ken in an exhibition game earlier this
month. The team released a state-
ment from Collins late Monday after-
"While unintentional and not
intended in a malicious manner. 1
understand that m remarks were
inappropriate and do not reflect mv
feelings in any way the statement
said. "I made a serious mistake and
regret my action. 1 have apologized to
mv teammates. 1 have a great respect
and affection for all of m team-
(lapers and some of the team's v et-
erans are calling for a new commit-
ment to closeness and political cor-
rectness, but it doesn't appear to be a
movement that has completely taken
hold. Witness cornerback 'lbi Cook's
comments Mondav when he was
asked about Collins" alleged remark.
"1 just think it was an unfortunate
accident that happened, you know -
just like drunk driving or you get in an
argument w ith your wife and you push
her and she falls down Cook said.

U.S. Open begins in
Arthur Ashe Stadium
NEW YORK (AP) - Five years ago at a
clinic for juniors, 12-year-old Venus
Williams met Arthur Ashe and posed
with him for a photograph she keeps
among her tennis treasures.
On Monday, in a match that would
have made Ashe proud. Williams
debuted at the VS. Open on the first
dav of plav in Arthur Ashe Stadium
and pummeled a 119 mph ace on her
final point to close out a 5-7. 6-0. 6-1
victory over lrisa Neiland.
Ashe devoted his last years to
encouraging inner city kids like
Williams, who learned the game on
the courts of Compton, Calif on the
southern edge of Los Angeles, where
the sound of gunfire was not too dis-
tant. She still remembers stopping
practice once against her sister.
Serena, when they thought the bul-
lets were headed their way.
Williams' arrival at the IS. Open,
appropriately enough, came amid the
birthday celebration of another black
tennis pioneer. Althea Gibson, who
turned 70 and won the first of her two
straight national singles titles 40 vears
ago. A few months ago. Williams got
the chance to talk with Oibson on the
"It was definitely a privilege play-
ing on this court Williams said. "And
it was definitely a perfect name to
name the court after, rthur did a lot
for the game, a lot for the world. He
was a great role model. Not just on
the court, but off the court.
"For plavers like myself and a lot of
other African-American plavers on the
tour. (Oibson) paved the way for us.
So it's important that we recognize
this, that I recognize it. and for me to
know my history
Williams never doubted, even as a
voung girl, that she would one day
plav in the U.S. Open.
'When Serena and 1 played, we
alvvavs just expected to be here she
saidWhen I was 10. 1 had been ptay-
ing, like, six years. So it was just what
1 expected, not what 1 hoped. I just
knew I would be there.
After a nervous start, the No. 66-
ranked Williams settled into a eon-
trolled power attack against the 31-
vear-old Neiland. who is more accom-
plished as a doubles player. Williams'
extraordinary mm talent .md impusinj
height, which allow her to overcome a
deficiency in coaching and ton little
experience in matches, was evident
on a couple of leaping overheads.
"I like doing that shot a tot the 5-
foot-11 Williams said.
Of her 11'� mph ace, winch
mched the fastest serve ot her
career and was just ,i bit of! Brenda
SchultAkCirthv 12.1 mph record.
Williams nonchalanth said she couW
hit it that fast whenever she wants.
"She's a breath of fresh air said
former champion John McEnroe.
Change was in the air all around
the IS.Open on a balmy first day as
teen-agers Anna Kournikova and I alia
Osterloh also scored impressive victo-
Kournikova, a 16-year-nld who is
one of the most promising prospects
on the women's tour, crushed Sabine
Appelmans 6-2, 6-0. Kournikova
reached the fourth round of the Open
last vear in her Grand Slam debut.
The 19-year-old Osterloh. who
won the NCAA title last spring as a
freshman at Stanford after leading the
school to the team championship,
gained her first victory as a pro by
beating Barbara Rittner6-3. 1-6. 6-3.
"Even though 1 won mv first round
(at the Open) last year as an amateur,
it's different now that I'm playing as a
professional. I'm really excited said
Osterloh. who is thankful she post-
poned her pro career until now.
"This is my timetable she said.
"1 want to plav for a long time. I fin-
ished high school, got to go to the
senior prom. 1 had a really normal
teen-age life. That's exactly what 1
wanted. I just felt like I didn't want to
jump right into the tour. I played a
few tournaments here and there, just
getting my feet wet. 1 wanted to
mature a little bit, get stronger, expe-
rience college life, take some courses,
make some really good friends
The first match in Arthur Ashe
Stadium was won bv Tamarinc

Thailand, who beat Chanda Rubin 6-

Men's No. 4 Ooran Ivanisevic, who
has been making an art of getting
upset in curious ways in (rand Slam
matches, fell 4-6, 7-5, 6-1,7-6(7-3) to
No. )1 DtTRl Pescariu of Romania.
Ivanisevic lost in the first round at the
Trench Open to Magnus Gustafsson,
then lost in the second round at
Wimbledon to Magnus Norman
despite serving 46 aces.
This time. Ivanisevic served a
mere 24 aces, played from the base-
line as if he were on clay, and dumped
a lot of balls into the bottom of the
net lie hit 75 unforced errors to

through his opening match, edging

Less than an hour after the Kickoff

beneath Giants Stadium, Wisconsin
coach Barry Alvarez and Paul

Syracuse, came face-to-face, shook
hands and had a few words for each
"You have some team Alvarez

had just routed the Badgers 34-0 on
"We played much better than we
anticipated Pasqualoni said.
.Alvarez raised his eyebrows, man-
aged a smile, and replied: "Why the
heck did you do it against me?"
Probably because Syracuse was so
desperate to start the season with a
victory, a rare feat the past few years.
"Winning this first game gets the
monkey off our backs from previous
seasons Syracuse left tackle Brad
Patkochis said. "Now we have the
first game out of the way
Last season, the Orangemen
opened with losses to North Carolina
and Minnesota en route to a 9-3 sea-
son that included a co-Big East title
and a Liberty Bowl victory.
Two years ago. it was a second-
game loss to East Carolina, but the
Orange still finished 9-3 with a Gator
Bowl victory. And three years ago, a
season-opening loss to Oklahoma led
to a 7-4-1 season.
And now it's on to bigger and bet-
ter things.
Already, Syracuse has moved from
No. 17 to No. 13 in The Associated
Press poll. The schedule doesn't look
as imposing, either, with only one
ranked team - Miami on Nov. 29 -

and did some stuff we weren't ready
for and we lost it. This year,

In winning 10 of their last 11
games over two seasons, the
Orangemen have outscored the
opposition by a whopping 428-146.
On defense, the Orangemen eas-
ily shut down the heralded Ron
Dayne, who finished with 46 yards
on 13 carries - the lowest output of
his 14-game career. With seven new
starters, the defense gained lots of
confidence by holding the Badgers
