State Legislature approves budget
Two-year plan includes
3 percent tuition increase
Jacqueline D. kki.i i m
A two year state budget plan has been approved bv the
North Carolina House of Representives and the Senate.
This budget includes a three percent tuition increase for
in-state students at all UNC system schools.
"They decided to go up three percent on the tuition.
That amounts to SI3 per semester and S'6 per year. They
elected at this time not to go up on out-of-state tuition
University Ca.shier Michael Balko said.
Two UNC schools are the exception to the choice not to
increase out-of-state tuition. Those schools were N.C.
State and U( Chapel Hill.
Kmmctt Floyd is the Assistant to the Chancellor for
(Constituent Relations and works to represent ECU's inter-
ests in the State Assembly. According to him, the two year
budget also includes a plan to increase tuition for the next
school year.
"Next ear. there will be a two percent increase for all
students, in-state and out-of-state said Floyd.
This vear's tuition increase will be retroactive to the
current semester. Students will be billed for the difference.
Faculty are getting a four percent increase in their pay.
along with all other state employees. This pay increase will
either be retroactive to July 1st at the four percent rate or
will begin September 1 at a five percent rate, according to
"That's still not in stone, but what we are hearing is that
it will be retroactive to July 1st Balko said.
The General Assemblv reevaluates the tuition even'
year, along with many other budget
considerations, and decide whether or
not to increase tuition, based partially
on recommendations.
"I'm sure they get recommendations
from the Fiscal Research Staff Floyd
The Fiscal Research Staff, according
to Floyd, investigate financial matters
in whatever area the General
Assembly requests, collects data, and
makes their recommendations
The General Assembly reconsiders the tuition every
"The Legislature looks at it every year. Historically, it
increases about three to five percent each year. But, then
again, we're still in the bottom third of the nation in the
cost of education Balko said.
Dr. Emmett Floyd
In addition to the tuition and salary increases, the
.Assembly also voted for several allocations to fund new and
ongoing projects at ECU. Over S9 million was allocated for
construction projects;an additional S7 million will be used
to complete the stadium, $2 million for the planning of the
science and technology building, and $500,000 to investi-
gate the possibility of a third floor addition to the Rivers
Day-to-day operating expenses were given a budget of
$85,275,602 for the main campus and $41,088,406 for the
medical school campus.
This operating budget is meant for things such as utili-
ties and salaries for police, grounds crew and housekeeping
An additional $5 million was designated for repairs and
renovations. This is a separate fund from the money desig-
nated for specific construction projects.
The General Assembly will meet again in May in what
is known as the short session to reconsider the budget.

In early August. President Bill Clinton and
Republicans in Congress adopted a spending
and tax plan that may make tax returns hun-

The spending and
tax plan includes sever-
al features that will
benefit L'NC students
and their families. The
benefits include tdx

assistant professor in the School of
The law has many features and is ver
"Some of the major features of it are a
reduction of tax on the capital gains, an edu-
cational credit, a tuition credit and several
other major features said Hagan.
In 1996-97 in-state tuition for undergrad-
uates was $1,386. If tuition were to stay the
same, parents of a freshman or sophomore
who make less than $80,000 per year would
receive a tax credit of up to $1,193. Parents of
an in-state junior or senior could take home a
possible $278.
Tuition paid by out-of-state students in
1996-97 was $9,918. Parents, if they do not
earn more than $80,000. with a freshman or
sophomore could take a credit of $1500.
Parents of a junior or se.iior could take $1000.
The tuition credit is actually broken up
into two separate categories.
"There are two different credits. There is
the Hope Scholarship Credit which is up to
$1500 and and is applicable to tuition costs in
the first two years. The Lifetime Learning
Credit is for anyone taking classes at an eligi-
ble institution and is up to $1000 said
The Hope Credit is for a person who is
claiming a student as a dependent, so it is
primarily for the parents.
"The things that qualify for ihe credit you
have to spend are tuition and tint on-related
expenses said Hagan.
Tuition-related expenses do not include
any type of sports games or hobbies. Student
fees, student activity fees, books, room and
lxard, athletic fees and construction expens-
es would not be included as tuition-related
The tuition credit is higher for those stu-
dents who are classified as a freshman or
sophomore and lower for upperclassmen.

seniors, that would lower revenue projection

Parking decal theft a concern
I) AWN K R N T K l N
There have been several reports of parking decal andor hang tag thefts
on campus this year. Lieutenant Stan Kittrell of the ECU Mice
Department stated there had been at least three of these incidents
reported during his shift.
No particular parking lot on campus is subject to the recent thefts.
One incident was reported at Mingesjust last week
"This is a crime of opportunity Kittrell said.
Kittrell also commented that the nature of these crimes makes it dif-
ficult for arrests to be made.
Two types of thefts have occurred. The first type of theft is of the
parking decal itself or larceny of a vehicle. The sticker is often scraped
off the car bumper or rear windshield. Often times, the sticker will not
Hang Tag Theft Prevention Tips:
1) Be sure that your car is secure. Lock all doors and keep
convertible tops up.
2) Park in a well-lit area if possible.
3) Keep all valuables in the trunk or in your houseresidence
4) If possible, get an adhesive hang tag which can be applied
directly to the back of the rear view mirror of your car.

come off in one piece, making it difficult for rhe thief to use it for his
own purposes. Torn stickers are also more identifiable to police who can
check to see if the sticker is in fact stolen or not.
A more serious crime is the theft of a parking hang tag. Hang tags
must be displayed in plain view by the rear-view mirror. Theft of hang
tags is considered breaking and entering of a vehicle, a felony crime
All reported incidents are kepr on file at both the police department
as well as Parking and Traffic.
"This is not a major crisis Kittrell said.
Had there been three or four incidents per week, Kittrell said it
would be called a "crime wave Major problems with theft on campus
involve stolen bicycles and car stereos.
There have been no arrests made. Unfortunately, it is difficult for
police to catch people committing these crimes.
"The best that we can do is get fingerprints, if possible, from the
interior of the car Kittrell said.
The penalty for stealing a parking sticker involves being charged
with a misdemeanor larceny with a maximum sentence of two years
imprisonment. If the person charged is a student, he will have to appear
before the Dean of Students, pay a fine to the University, and will like-

According to several of those involved, it
will hopefully provide medical care at a more
convenient location for Greenville residents.
"Rather than patients having to find their

The East Carolinian
University responds to stadium troubles
ECU officials are looking at a new deadline for
the completion of the Dowdy-Rckl�n Stadium
expansion � over a month after the original dead-
The stadium, which was supposed to be com-
pleted by ECU's Sept. 13 game against Wake
Forest, will not be complete because of faulty
beams and an array of problems.
A new completion date has been set by con-
struction company Davidson Jones Beers. The
company is guaranteeing the upper deck will be
completed by Oct. 16.
Though Oct. 16 is the official deadline,
Davisdson Jones Beers is determined to have the
stadium ready by the Oct. 11 game against
Southern Mississippi.
The expansion of Dowdy-Flcklen Stadium has
been a long and rocky parh, but a number of peo-
ple have worked together to bring the project to
"The way it worked is we have a number of
different people working with the project. The
architect is one person who is responsible for
supervising; another is the construction company
� their responsibilities are not only the design of
the project, but they are monitoring the project as
it's built to make sure it is built to specifications
said Dr. Richard Eakin. chancellor of ECU.
When concerns about the deck were
expressed by Wallace Bagley, a consultant who
walked off the project, the university took imme-
diate action.
"As this went along and concerns were
expressed, we were certainly aware of them and
we were expressing our own concerns. All of us
were trying to work together with the contractor,
the architect, the university and construction
workers. All of us on a continuing basis worked
together to get to resolve any difficulties said
There was a factor of concern expressed about
the safety of the upper deck if contractors con-
tinued to rush for a deadline.
"We decided that the schedule was not that
important. We would rather have them stop, not
proceed further, get everything in order and then
go on with the project said Eakin.
Representatives from the Office of State
Construction have frequented the construction in
past weeks to keep up with progress.
"I was generally pleased; there was a good deal
of progress since the last time I was on the site
said Bert Neily, an engineer from the Office of
State Construction who has been monitoring the
.Although safety has been a factor related to
the completion of stadium, it is nqt the greatest
factor with which the university must deal. The
university's greatest concern is how long the sta-
dium will withstand the test of time.
"I would say that the main concerns at this
point, as far as I understand, are not safety; They
are concerns that have to do with the fact that
this project needs to last 100 years or so said
Everyone involved with the production is con-
fident the upper deck will be a wonderful addi-
tion to Dowdy-Rcklen Stadium as well as a reli-
able and safe structure. The structure should be
around for years and years to come.

"The sta-

delays are
the responsi-
bility of the contractor. Due to the
short-sightedness of the contractor,
these delays look bad on the univer-
sity and the athletic department
said Ghesquiere.
At the current time, the major
concern is getting the stadium fin-
ished and finished correctly. No
one wants to take on the responsi- .
bility of risking safety in order to get
the stadium done quicker. Even
though many of East Carolina's stu-
dent are disappointed with the fact
that the stadium is not done, they
agree that they rather be safe than
have an accident occur.
Scarlett Smith, a junior decision

a junior chemistry major, are just
glad the project has been started

"At least the
expansion has been started.
Hopefully, no one will get hit by a
falling beam coming from the upper
deck during the Wake Forest game.
I am glad that the university is tak-
ing safety measures on the new-
expansion. When the university
found out about the problems they
should have put extra shifts onto
the project in order to get the work
done. I hope that there is no more
delays, I would like to have the sta-

North Carolinians mourn death
of Britain's beioved princess
RALEIGH (AP) � People across
North Carolina joined with others
throughout the world to mourn
Princess Diana, a woman most
knew only through the media �
the very media that some blame for
her death.
From the moment the shy, doe-
eyed teenager stepped onto the
world stage in 1980 as the fiancee
of Prince Charles, the highs and
lows of her life � from her marriage
and the birth of her two sons to her
messy divorce � were served up
daily to a voracious worldwide audi-
ence through books, magazines,
newspapers and television.
The relentless exposure, cou-
pled with a natural grace that no
camera lens could distort, bred a
kind of familiarity that led so many
to relate to Diana and be fascinated
by her.
"She was young, vivacious, ener-
getic, and always such a presence in
Europe and America said Orrie
Crews. 28, a curator with the
Natural Science Center of
Greensboro. "Now the story has
tragically and suddenly ended, for
really no good reason any more than
someone wanted to take a picture
of her
The Rev. Billy Graham spoke for
many other North Carolinians on
Sunday when he remembered
Princess Diana as much more than
a celcnritv.
"Princess Diana set a wonderful
example for all of us by her concern
for the poor, the oppressed, the
hurting and the sick Graham said
in a release from his Montreat
home. "She easily could have cho-
sen to withdraw from public life,
but she made this world a better
place by her smile of encourage-
ment and her support for dozens of
worthy causes. Princess Diana was
one of our first public figures (to
tackle the worldwide danger of land
mines or hold a man with AIDS or
touch a leper, and no person was too
lowly or too handicapped for her
"This tragedy should remind us
again of how fragile life is, and how
we should be ready to enter eterni-
ty and meet God at any moment
Graham said.
Salisbury native Elizabeth Dole,
the head of the American ReH
Cross and an acquaintance of
Diana's, also praised the princess'
humanitarian work around the
"She was just like a ray of sun-
shine, with a wonderful sense of
humor Mrs. Dole told the
Salisbury Post. "It was just a real joy
to know her.
"She just had something. 1 think
people want hope and she gave
people hope. She made a lot of peo-
ple respect her
Like mourners elsewhere in the
world, people here expressed the
s.ime mi of emotions � deep sad-
ness over the ioss of Diana J
deep revulsion for the possible
cause of her death.

role, being stalked by the press,
who picked up every awful detail of
her life and publicized it all over

Black Mountain, who lived in
France from 1981 to 1993. "I

Hendersonville resident Tony
Slovacek said the motorcycle-riding
paparazzi chasing Diana's car

to blame for her death in a car

that buys those rags are just as
responsible he said. "If the British
people put all the blame on those

Local government officials say building rules costing
taxpayers money
RALEIGH (AP) - When Cumberland County school officials fired a gener-
al contractor building an elementary school in 1994, they knew they were
opening a Pandora's box of potential lawsuits.
Within weeks, the school system was sued by the plumbing contractor,
the electrical contractor and trie heating and air conditioning contractor.
Tim Kinlaw, who oversees the school system building, doesn't blame the
contractors. He knows the delays - created both by the general contractor
and the subsequent firing - cost the smaller contractors.
He places the blame squarely on North Carolina's building rules.
Since the 1920s, North Carolina has required state agencies and local
governments to negotiate with separate general contractors, plumbers, elec-
tricians and air conditioning contractors when thev embark on a large build-
The multi-prime contracting rules � designed to save money � are
actually increasing the cost of public buildings and leading to construction
delays, critics say.
Faircloth stalls private mortgage insurance bill
RALEIGH (AP) - Only eight companies make up the nation's $500 billion
mortgage insurance market, and four of them are in North Carolina.
No wonder that Sen. Lauch Faircloth, R-N.C, who sits on the Senate
Banking Committee, has made sure that a bill clamping down on private
mortgage insurance doesn't advance.
Nationally, about five million borrowers are required to pay for private
mortgage insurance, usually because they put less than 20 percent down
when they bought their houses. The cost of the coverage varies greatly,
depending on the location and the price of the home, but most borrowers
pay between $200 and $800 a year.
The House has overwhelmingly approved a bill requiring automatic can-
cellation of the insurance when mortgage-holders hit a prescribed equity
level. But four months later, the bill hasn't even reached the Senate floor.
The eight companies that write such insurance have thrived under the
current rules. They earned $1 billion last year, with GE Mortgage of Raleigh
- a unit of General Electric Co. � alone clearing $250 million.

Man saves child, washed away in boating mishap
PORT MAHON, Del. (AP) � A man boating on Delaware Bay was missing
today after diving into the water to save one of three young passengers who
had fallen overboard.
Jcrald Kcndricks, 43, of Wilmington, Del jumped from the 19-foot boat
late Sunday to save the 10-year-old girl, VS. Coast Guard petty officer David
St. Pierre said. He was able to help her back on board.
But the two other children - the girl's 10-year-old twin sister and her 15-
year-old brother - then lost sight of Kcndricks. a family friend.
Adrift a mile from land and unsure how to operate the boat, one of the chil-
dren used a cellular phone to dial 911.
St. Pierre said the children could not describe where they were, so the
Coast Guard and telephone company tracked down Kcndricks' phone number
in Wilmington.
His mother gave rescuers an idea of where to look, but another boater had
already towed the drifting boat back to shore.
Kcndricks was not wearing a life jacket and wore a black shirt, making the
rescue attempt more difficult, St. Pierre said.
Aging baby boomers driving increase in RV sales
MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - At 47, a hardworking family man like Lon Farris could
be forgiven if he gave in to an urge to buy something sleek, fast and impracti-
cal. A two-seater, perhaps.
Instead, Farris bought an RV with bunk beds.
He is among the growing number of baby boomers buying recreational
vehicles, those rolling living rooms usually associated with their parents' gen-
With two young children and a busy schedule as a judge, Farris is a far cry
from a fogy. But he is not as keen as he once was to pitch a tent in the woods
far from plumbing and groceries.
Among the estimated 31 million people traveling by road this Labor Day
weekend, chances are that more baby boomers arc traveling by RV than ever.
Retirees are still the mainstay of the RV market. But industry figures from
last year show that 9 million RV owners, nearly 40 percent of the total, were
between 35 and 54. And the percentage of younger owners is growing.
The RV means no hassles with motels or airports and fewer headaches
packing the gear required for kids, said Farris and his wife, Becky, 30.
For families with small children
there is now the opportunity to sec
money aside in an IRA without

"For younger children, brothers

Just when you thought all of your bills and fees were paid, the N.C. State Assembly finally decid-
ed to pass the budget (two months late) and what do you know, we have to pay $13 more per
semester for tuition. �
Let's just think for a minute about how much it will cost the school to send us another bill.
At $.325 per envelope for 17,000 students it will cost the University $5,440 just to mail us the
bill, not including the hours spent printing the bills and the time spent stuffing the envelopes.
Is it really worth it?
Of course the University probably doesn't use stamps the way you or I do for each envelope.
More than likely they have those prepaid envelopes for educational institutions. Still somebody,
somewhere paid for those bills to go through the post office and be sent to us.
You may ask, "Why are they billing us again?" Well, we at TEC are also pondering that ques-
tion. We think it is ridiculous. If they wanted us to pay more tuition then maybe they should
have passed the budget in time. W the taxpayers of North Carolina, are paying these people
to do a job and obviously they are not doing it. If so, we would probably have had the budget
passed a long time ago. So now we, the students, have to pay more money after we have already
spent all of our financial aid and wc are just realizing exactly how broke we are.
Not that $26 is a big deal to the state legislators who p-t paid bin bucks to sperd too much
time to decide on a budget. These legislators are used to dealing with large sums of money like
the day-to-day operating expenses of running ECU's campus, $85,275,602, and the medical
school, $41,088,406. A measly $26 dollars more a year doesn't sound like much to them and
maybe it doesn't seem like much to some students but to the rest of us who are paying for col-
lege through scholarships or on our own, Twenty-six dollars is money that we have to fork over,
' money that we didn't budget to pay.
It's not that we weren't expecting an increase in our tuition, it is just the fact that it came two
months late and one month after our original tuition bill arrived. Most students have already
S allotted their financial refunds to other things, and more than likely, others are on a tight bud-
! get and $13 is worth a night downtown, not late tuition. What arc they going to do with this
I money anyway?

Polluters make us live with their mistakes
My question to you is, "What
are we doing?"
Sewage is being released into
the river, as was the
ease with Kinston and now
What we are doing is allowing
our rivers, oceans, land
and air to be raped.
The sun had not yet risen. Dawn had
just begun and I was up. The time
was unimportant.
I arose from- my bed rather early.
The night had been unusually restful.
I was hit with a sudden realization: I
was awake before the Percolator was
1 decided to go for a walk. The
morning is always a favorite of mine,
everything seems new. A new day, a
new start on life.
I started my walk to the Tar River
as the sun was just beginning to show
her bright, radiant face, Cats, birds
and other such local fauna played
their life and death game all around.
The morning always breathes new
life into me. As I made my way to the
Tar River, the dew on the grass found
its way onto my sandal-laden feet,
always a refreshing feeling.
My destination achieved, I
reached the Tar River. The mist was
just beginning to rise. I had seen this
happen numerous times and on many-
different rivers. Trees along the oppo-
site side of the river made the scene
Then I saw it. A sight that dis-
gusted me. A sight that is happening
more and more often. A tire was half
in the river and haif on the bank.
Trie "moment" had more to it
than just that. A nice oil slick was
making its way slowly down the river.
My question to you is, "What are
we doing?" Sewage is being released
into the river, as was the case with
Kinston and now Raleigh. Hog farms
are overflowing at semi-regular inter-
What wc are doing is allowing our
rivers, oceans, land and air to be
raped. Eating fish from some rivers in
this state has become a game of
Russian roulette.
I ask again, "What are we doing?"
Does it make sense to you that rivers
that have existed for centuries are
unsafe to fish?
I hope one day to look at future
generations and watch them enjoy
the wilderness, the water, everything
this state has to offer. I do not want w

tomorrow that I. we. you allowed tht

chemicals to put our land into a cata

With thi in mind, I propose a law
a simple law. The law would be aimet
at the polluters. Those who choose a

feces will not be punished with rela
tively small tines that major corpora

The law comes down to two choic

Some might call this law cruel am
unusual punishment. My theory i
that the polluters force us to live witl
their mistakes, therefore we shouli
force them to live with their own.

Letter to the Edito
Love should be part of Gen X's American Dream McLawhom will act in interest of students concerning parking
America seems a country that
either prides itself on its
abuse of itself or is com-
pletely asinine in its
knowledge of itself
Just where is the happy
median, that once was
"The American Dream"?
Women are highly underrated. So too,
the value of a meaningful relationship
in our post Generation-X lives has
been denigrated.
For many, college is the time when
we find our one and only love. My
parents met each other on the mall in
1961. And somehow, they've stood
the test of time: three sons, two
grand kids, two near divorces, 36 years
together. Sometimes it's hard to fath-
In a culture where the divorce rate
hovers near SO percent and the holis-
tic value of a lifelong commitment, is
poured on our youth (that would be
you and me) between reruns of Beavis
andBaatrod, and MTV's SmgttdOut
it's a wonder it's not higher.
America seems a country chat
either prides itself on its abuse of
itself (see gangsta rap, Marilyn
Manson) or is completely asinine in
its knowledge of itself (see Bill
Cosby, Michael Jackson, Hanson),
just where is the happy median, that
once was "The American Dream"?
And don't think that just because
you were born between 197- �
1980 that somehow vou're exempt
from this part of life. Just what is our
American Dream in the year 1997?
Generation X has attacked the
workforce with more ambition and
vigor than any previous generation.
Unemployment is the lowest it's
been in 34 years. Inflation literally
decreased for five months�some-
thing it hasn't done since mid-centu-
ry. Rebellion is passe. Many of us
have grown stone-cold indifferent
about the political situation in this
And somewhere amidst this sea of
media-labeled post-generation-slack-
ers there still exists a core of human
desires and needs, chiefly among
them love, friendship and a desire to
be something, to be somebody, to be
recognized as something other than
one of the herd.
Perhaps love is that refuge. More
likely than not the American Dream
still has its same basic principles
(chiefly, love, marriage, kids, a
home). It has just had a major face-
lift and several Versace alterations.
It has become interwoven around
acerbicaliy sarcastic comedy and frus-
traringly manic music. Pop culture
hat always been the anti-hero that
��ushes the envelope on America's
accepted herd values.
I suppose there's some truth in
.At any rate, I don't want to belea-
guer the point. When you begin to
feel like you're gasping for your last
breath of air amidst the comlexity
that is 1997, perhaps the safest hand
to grab hold of is the oldest four let-
ter word around: love. You tell me.
I am writing to express my concern
about the terrible parking situation
surrounding East Carolina University.
I graduated from ECU in 1994, but
my parking woes continue. It seems
like every week another friend or
acquaintance tells me of a citation
they received or that they could not
park around their home.
Since ECU has recently reported
the addition of new parking spaces,
let me be the first to say that it's
about time and long overdue. I have
also learned that my old friend, Mr.
Steve McLawhom, lias made parking
one of his key issues in this year's city-
council race for District 3.
Has anyone stopped to wonder
why the parking has gotten worse year
after year? Why has Inez Fridley been
unable or unwilling to alleviate this
burden on the homeowners and stu-
dents during her 12 years in office? It
is my opinion that the millions of dol-
lars in revenue deirved by the ECU
administration and the Greenville eity
govemment each year from fines and
fees may be the culprit. As long as the
city and university administration are
making millions of dollars, there is no
real incentive to improve the situa-
tion. .As a matter of fact, destroying
parking while continuing to sell too
many stickers may actually increase
revenues from fines. I especially worn
about the fact that the administration
has recently planted flower beds over
parking spaces near the cashier's
I believe that we need a city coun-
cil representative in District 3 who
does not receive a paycheck from the
ECU adminsiration. That way we will
not have to worry about any possible
conflicts of interest. I believe that
Steve McLawhom w ill act in the best
intc-est of the homeowners and stu-
dents in his district on the issue ol
parking and I hope that your readers
will support his candidacy-

Holy Land gets two takes in new exhibits
mrr write
The Wellington B. Gray Gallery at
die ECU School of Art will present
two dramatically different views of
the IWy Land in two new caJifbto
that wilt he on display from Sept. 5
Sept. 14.
One of the exhibits, entitled the
"North Carolina to Israel
Photographic Project, is the result
of two months spent in Israel by
�ach of few prretoewhere frewi
North CaroHni who photographed
the Israeli landscape from their own
unique arid American perspectives.
The efforts of six Israeli photog-
rsphers to capture the images of
sheir homeland in their own person-
al ways comprise the second exhibit,
�A Delicate Balance
Both of the exhibits stem from

Exchange a governor's initiative
between Israel and North earolina
which was passed through the NC
Department of Culture and which is
directed by John Coffey. Other exhi-
bitions featuring a variety of artists
and media have also resulted from
this international program.
"We are very proud to be recog-
nized as one of the major exhibition
spaces in North Carolina says
Gilbert Lecbriek, director of Gray
The North Carolina photogra-
phers address such'issues as family
roots, the peaceful coexistence of
different cultures, female roles in
Israeli history and culture and mod-
ern Israel's use of technology in the
pursuit of better living.
The Israeli photographers make

"It is always interesting to see
how someone else views the world, if

view the exhibits.
The two exhibits were brought
to Gray Gallery by the North

the day of the opening in Speight

will include presentations by the

TV journalism kills Princess Diana
. -�, wide awake at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning What was I doing up at such an
ungodly hour? I was doing ungodly things. 1 was channel surfing.
My roommate recently bought s satellite dish and we now have access to 999
channels. Granted, some of them are pay-per-view,( but we have them all.
Channel surfing is so much more fulfilling when you have all the channels, and
you can end your search knowing that there is really nothing good on, anywhere.
There was something on at 2:30 though. It managed to permeate every chan-
nel in a sinister way I thought only possible by Coca Cola, Inc. It was, of course,
news of the death of Britain's Princess Diana, who passed away eariy that morn-
ing after a high speed chase in Rrance. I was awake and fortunate enough to be
plugged in. Every channel had their bit about Princess Di, and I'm not kidding
here. kids. ESPN had a bit. The Comedy Channel had a bit. MTV had a bit.
Everyone was getting in on a piece of the action. �� .
By now we all know what happened. Di and her new love were being hound-
ed, as per usual, by paparazzi in a restaurant. The couple left the restaurant and
were chased at high speeds by journalists on motorcycles. The chase ended in a
runnel when Di's driver made a bad move and then, of course, the paparazzi gpt
their hot news break.
Later on that morning, CNN showed teary-eyed (shall I say t;)fam of ui
weeping over the toss of their superstar Princess. My roommate cynically point-
ed out that those same mourners were no doubt the very people who buy the
magazines produced by the paparazzi, who murdered the Princess.
I've always known that the media, and journalists, especially, haw little to no
morals. Being a member of rhut beloved section of society, (I'm prolublv a
member of the Illuminati and I don't even kn. m it.) I c. attest to the fact that
the truth rarely matters, while money, not getting sued, and nut getting tireJ do
matter. Selling papers matters. Selling ads matters. The truth? That s for ethics
professors and churchgoers. Big fat juicy Iks, or half-lies sell more, and you peo-
ple cat it up. How many of you turned right to this article because of the head-
line? , . w
While it's true that 1 hold the power of words in my hands, it is also true that
I wouldn't if no one let me. It's more likely than not that every person who reads
this has never met Di personally. She exists only as an imap: on a blue screen or

James Mangold is an overnight suc-
cess. At the moment, his name is a
buzz word in Tinseltown simply
because this relatively unknown direc-
tor has accomplished the impossible,
something even the major Hollywood
players couldn't do - he made Sylvester ,
Stallone a respectable actor once again.
Mangold is the one responsible for
doing plastic surgery to Stallone's
career and image by casting the man
best known as Rocky and Rambo in a
small, independent, plot-driven drama
called Cap Land. The critical reaction
has been mixed. Some maintain that
Mangold is competent but nothing
extraordinary, no Martin Scorsese.
Otliers have placed Mangold on a cin-
ematic pedestal next to the likes of
Orson Wells.
Critics aside. Mangold did manage
to trim much of the fat our of Stallone's
cliched image, which has for the past .
10 years been representative of all that is wrong with modern movies. Instead,
Mas-old focuses less on image and more on human emotion
Human emotion, however, is no stranger to Mangold. He grabbed the cnti-
cal community bv the throat last year with a small, quietly tragic human drama,
a film that did not feature such heavy-weight box office champions as Stallone
or Robert DeNiro but was still very much a winner.
Heavy was not the kind of film that pulls in millions of movie fans across the
nation. Its stvle and tone did not carry the flashy hipness of Men In Bhrt nor trie
energy of Air Force One. What it did carry was a disarming peek into the lonely
lives of fully realized characters, which (if given the chance) can be as thnllmg
and hypnotizing anv alien invasion or terrorist takeover. .
And now that Mangold's triumph is available on video, there s nothing to
stop us locals from taking a break from the cinematic norm.
Heavy is not powered by a strictly linear narrative. The basic premise centers
around an isolated, overweight short-order cook named Victor (played to per-

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Its parr of
America's history, a touchstone of the
national culture. And it's tasty.
It is the hot dog. the subject of a
documentary being cooked up by two
twenty-something New Jersey film-
makers. The idea behind "Footlong
said producer Getty Beyer, is simple:
"To understand America, you must
look at the hot dog
Bever's enthusiasm goes way-
back, back to when he chose a hot
dog stand fot his high school gradua-
tion dinner. Now he and lifelong hot
dog-eating pal Chris Patak are dig-
ging deep into the world of frank-
furters and the nation's "hot dog sub-
Thev talk to street vendors and
track down hot dog etiquette (it's
always "dress the dog not the bun).
Bever even entered the 82nd annual

this year.
"I felt dizzy afterward - and nau-
seous Beyer said, having eaten 10
dogs in 12 minutes to finish thitd
from last. The winner, 135-pound
Hirofumi Nakajima of Japan, ate 24

The film spotlights famous hot
dog stands, like the celebrity hangout
Pink's Chilidogs in Los Angeles and
the first Oscar Meyer WienerMobile.

in 1936.
The filmmakers make the
required pilgrimage to Coney Island,
where Nathan Handwerker opened
what is believed to be the first hot
dog stand in America in 1916. He
borrowed $320 from Eddie Cantor
and Jimmy Durante.
The dog itself was first intro-
duced to .America at the 1904 World's
Fair in St. Louis, though it went by a
different name.
That changed in 1906, so the
story goes, when cartoonist Tad
Dorgan saw vendors at a baseball
game selling the slim sausages and
calling out "Get your red hot dachs-
hund sandwiches Dorgan, sketch-
ing a wiener with mustard, couldn't

Hot dog it became. And hot dog it
has been.
Americans purchased 752 million
pounds of hot dogs in 1995 accord-

Section by I'ruitt Taylor Vmce), who
becomes strangely obsessed with a
new waitress named Connie (played
b the always exceptional Liv Tler).
While this somewhat standard idea
does take up the larger part of the
film, the film is much more than an
examination of obsession.
Victor is not a stalker, nor is he any
real danger (although a brooding vio-
lence does seernto linger within
him). Victor is a lost soul among other
lost souls. He is a grown man who
works in his mother's diner and still
lives with her at home. His life is
filled with meaningless moments that
include trips to the grocery store,
walking the dog, fantasizing about
Connie, and eating food.
Victor is an obese man, and that
fact bother him more than those
around him. Connie dues not judge
him based on appearances. She sees
the good within him. Vc, Victor can-
not help but continually stand on the
seale and watch the numbers soar
towards the 250 mark.
Obesity is not something Mangold
makes light of. He does not tr to por-
tray Victor as the jolly funn fat man.
He is a very sad person who turns to
food when there is nothing else to
depend on. Mangold uses the theme
of obesity equaling weakness not to
mock but to address what may very
well be an illness resulting from
severe depression.
VictDf is a prisoner of his both and
his circumstance. Mangold transforms
the rural, southern countryside (com-
plete with crickets and drunken red-
necks) into a prison cell much in the
same way that he transforms the city
of Cop IjiiiiI into a symbol for being
trapped. Running awas to a better life-
is not alwas a solution for his charac-
Mangold is a solid storyteller,
though he does not qualify as being a
visionary. While such directors as
Scorsese and Oliver Stone have suc-
ceeded in their narratives with swoop-
ing cameras that create the action as
much as they follow the action.
Mangold's approach is much softer.
His camera barely moves.
Instead. Mangold progresses his
film w ith countless static shots edited
together, thus creating a story that
moves slowIv yet deliberately. Add on
top of this long moments of silence
(no dialogue, no explosions, no noth-
ing), and you have a viewing experi-
ence that demands attention and
Vet, once you open yourself to
Mangold's world, it won't release you.
You learn to care for his characters.
ou understand them and their pains.
You identify with them. That, my
friend, is a raritv in modern cinema.

The East Carolinian
Pirates counting days until season kicks off
All the hard work the football team has put in
during the off season will be tested on
Saturday as the Pirates travel up to
Morgantown for their season opener with the
West Virginia Mountaineers.
Last season the Pirates left West Virginia
with a bitter taste in their mouth, losing by
one point in a failed two-point conversion
attempt. The Pirates had trimmed the lead to
10-9, when quarterback Marcus Crandell got
the call to go for two, after he had hit LaMont
Chappell for the touchdown pass. The
attempt failed and they lost by one.
Head Coach Steve Logan said Monday in
his weekly press conference that he hopes
this year's team can get to the point of being
that close to winning the game.
"I'd give anything to be in that situation
again because it will be tough to get to that

point Iogan said.
A young offensive line and injuries have
bombarded the Pirates the past couple of
weeks. Split-end Larry Shannon can only
watch his teammates go for the victory due to
a sprained ankle last week and suffered a bro-
ken fibula, which will keep him in a cast for at
least two weeks.
Logan noted other players with injuries.
"Brian Ray tore his ACL, so he'll be out for

now is that we are light in the numbers of

West Virginia's offensive threat
will come again from tailback
.Amos Zereoue, who ran for 111
yards last year against ECU.
Logan said it will be hard for his
team to prepare for the 250

What's the same answer everyone
gives when asked about how the
Pirate football team will do this year?
"We should do all right if the offen-
sive line can hold up
Enter Chuck Kelly. Kelly is in his
first year as the offensive line coach at
ECU and is ready for the challenge.
"Yes, we are young Kelly said.
"But wc are also bigger, stronger and
faster than ever
The Pirates have experience on
offense with the nation's leading
returning rusher, Scott Harley, quar-
terback Dan Gonzalez and wide
receivers Larry Shannon and Jason
Nichols. But the offensive line lacks
experience and cohesiveness. Danny
Moore, who started all 11 games last
season, will accompany Stacy
Whitehead, who played sparingly last
year, and a group of freshmen. Kelly
remains optimistic, despite the youth
and inexperience factors.
"We know we're going to see a lot
of pressure, but we'll just have to han-
dle it. The bullets will be flying (at
Gonzalez and Harley). We're going to
have to protect them Kelly said.
Kelly is a native of Mississippi and
resides in Greenville, M.S. His first
coaching job was in 1980 as an assis-
tant high school coach in Shreveport,
La. He then took a head coaching
position at Glenbrook High School in
Minden, LA for two years. Kelly
spent 1983-1984 as a graduate assis-
tant with the Rebels of Ole Miss.
From there, Kelly spent nine years as

before joining the Pirates in March.

about this upcoming season and
admits the offensive line will need a

effective and learn to play as a unit.
"Our defensive front seven have a
lot of experience and will keep us in

that will make my guys want to get
In addition to gaining playing time
and a sense of togetherness, Kelly
wants his line to gain knowledge as
well. Kelly's objective is for his line to
understand the concept behind each
play and act as a unit accordingly.
Despite the question marks at the
offensive line, Kelly has prepared
them for battle this weekend against
West Virginia. Maybe the lingering
memory of the failed two-point con-
version a year ago will be enough to
fuel their fire.
"You'd better believe that's in the
back of their minds Kelly said. "It's
going to be a war
Football team suffers more injuries
East Carolina sophomore Brian Ray, who was slated to start at inside line-
backer for the Pirates this season, is now expected to miss the 1997 cam-
paign after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in
Thursday's practice.
Ray, a 6-2,230-pound Raleigh, N.C. native (Millbrook High School), saw
limited action last season as a true freshman. Ray; along with kickers
Brantley Rivers and Andrew Bayes, were the only true freshman to play for
East Carolina in 1996.
Meanwhile, the news on fellow inside linebacker Jeff Kerr's injury was
better. Kcrr suffered a fracture of the third metacarpal bone in his left hand
in Thursday's practice. He sat out Saturday morning's workout which con-
sisted of mainly substitution drills, but is expected to resume practice
Monday. The 6-4, 230-pound Kerr. a Salisbury, N.C. product, was scheduled
to start inside alongside Ray.

15 yards out off of a loose ball. After
its early goal, Eton was unable to gen-
erate hardly any additional quality
scoring chances for the remainder of
the contest. ECU's defense was
anchored by sophomore sweeper
Brett Waxer (East Meadow, N.Y.).
The Pirates were able to tic the
contest at 1-1 just before the half
when freshman midfielder Chris
Walker (Cary) booted one in from
eight yards out at the 40:54 mark.
Sophomore forward A.J. Gray
(Jacksonville) and junior midfielder
Mike Holtoway (Jacksonville) assist-
ed on the play.
"To tie the match in the final five
minutes of the first period was very
important for us said ECU head
coach Will Wiberg. "It established
some momentum for us going into
the second half
For the first 45 minutes, ECU
registered nine shot attempts to six
for the Fighten' Christens. Pirate
goalkeeper Jay Davis (Wilson, N.C.)
had five saves in the first period;
while West notched seven for Eton.
Both teams put on a defensive
showcase in the second half with
most of the play concentrated in the
Pirates' attacking third. The match
seemed destined for overtime until
Pokorney and Panos connected for
the game-winning goal.
"1 am very proud of the way we
won the match Wiberg said. "This
is the first time in my three years as
hi id coach here thai we hjvc been
al : to come from behind for a victo-
ry. We played much better in the sec-
ond half. We started to play our
games and were able to generate
some better scoring opportunities.
Jay Davis played very well for us in
goal and Brett Waxer did extremely
well in the backfield for us
The Pirates will return to action
Thursday when they travel to The
Citadel in Charleston. The match is
scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.
East Carolina and the L-ady
Flames of Liberty University put on
a defensive showcase for nearly 80
minutes before Liberty forward
Dana Giani (Newport) scored on a
head-in at the 79:40 mark off of a
crossing pass from midfielder Cheryl
Williams (Tracy, Calif.) to edge to
Pirates, 1-0 at Bunting Field.
For the match, ECU recorded 26
shots on goal to just four for Liberty,
but the Pirates were unable to knock
one passed Lady Flame goalkeeper
Shannon Hutchinson (Chesterfield,
Va.) who registered 15 saves.
In the season-opening contest for
each, both teams played very conser-
vative in the first period. At the half.
East Carolina had registered nine
shot attempts, while Liberty had
only one.
"In the first half, I felt our level of
play was acceptable for it .being the
first game of the season said ECU
head coach Neil Roberts. "We
thought that if we could increase our
defensive pressure in the second
period, it would generate some addi-
tional chances in the attack
The majority of play in the sec-
ond period was concentrated in the
Pirates' attacking third due to their
increased pressure. In the final 45
minutes, ECU had numerous scoring
opportunities, tallying 17 shots, but
were unable to capitalize. In the sec-
ond period alone. Hutchinson
notched 11 saves for Liberty. For the
match, ECU freshmen midfielders
Lcanne Mclnnis (Raleigh) and Erin
Cann (Bordentown, N.J.) recorded
five shot attempts apiece. Senior
midfielder Courtney Jurcich
(Spnivfield. Vu.) added four shots.
V � crc ,ille t�. -it a lot ofprcs-
- � mi them, but thc-v were able to
stay with us Roberts said. "Their
keeper, Hutchinson, played awe-
some. Obviously, I'm not pleased
with the result, but we didn't play
poorly. Leanne Mclnnis played
extremely well. We are going to need
to solve some problems in the attack
in order to create some better-quali-
ty goal-scoring chances before our
next match
The Pirates will return to action
on Wednesday when they travel to
play Barton College in Wilson. The
match is scheduled to begin at 4:00
After opening the ECU Classic
with a pair of wins, the East Carolina
University volleyball team suffered
its first defeat of the season Saturday,
dropping a tough 12-15, 13-15,9-15
decision to Campbell University.
The loss came despite ECU having a
better attack percentage (.185 183)
through the match.
"We were pleased to be in the
championship game of our own tour-
nament, but it's always a disappoint-
ment when you come in second
place said head coach Kim Walker.
"For the first tournament of the sea-
son, there were quite a few positives.
We played well when we were fresh
(on Friday) and, although we looked
tired on Saturday morning, we still
found a way to win. Then in the
championship game, we just came
up short
In the final match of the week-
end, ECU (2-1) was again ted by a
pair of freshmen as Cinta Claro and
Liz Hall continued to shine. Claro
recorded 13 kills in the champi-
onship to lead both teams, white
Hall added II kills and 13 digs. For
their efforts, Claro and Hall, along
with teammate LaKeya Mason, were
named to the ECU Classic All-
Tournament Team.
"I was supriscd at the perfor-
mances by Claro and Hall, and the
level they took us to Walker said.
"With them in the lineup, we raise
our level of play a notch. It's the
same with LiKla i. as she has plavcd
rwo years of .t)iice volleyball ��� ' re
coming here and knows what k n�c
to be on the court
Earlier in the day, the Pirates won
their second in a row, as they
downed Howard University 15-8, 9-
15, 15-11, 15-6. Shannon Kaess and
Hall ted the charge against the Bison
(0-3) with a combined 10 kills and
10 digs, while junior Kristen Warner
added 25 assists.
"Kaess, WarneT and Kari
Koenning provided the leadership
all weekend and had a solid tourna-
ment Walker said. "We are still
young, but with leadership and the
younger players helping out, we
should be okay
Along with the three Pirates,
Michelle Vandrovec (Winthrop),
Brianna Sandburg (Campbell) and
Tinsley Gordon (Campbell) were
named to the all-tournament squad,
with Vandrovec recieving MVP hon-
The Pirates will next be in action

Syracuse stunned by loss to North Carolina State
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) � Syracuse tight end Roland Williams stood tall
and tried to answer that all-too-familiar question: Why?
He tried, but tears welled up in his eves and he just walked away.
One week after they transformed Wisconsin's Ron Dayne into just
another running back, the Syracuse Orangemen now have to wonder if
they're just another team after Saturday's stunning 32-31 overtime loss to
North Carolina State, a 25-point underdog.
The raves had poured in when Syracuse humbled the speedy 260-
pound Dayne and Wisconsin in the Kickoff Classic, winning 34-0 and hold-
ing one of the premier running backs in the nation to 46 yards on 13 car-
ries. The victory boosted the Orangemen four spots to No. 13 in the rank-
ings. . '
But against the Wolfpack, the Orangemen couldn't stop shifty Jamie
Bamette, the 199-pound sophomore quarterback of a team coming off con-
secutive 3-8 seasons, and lost. In one afternoon, Syracuse went from
unbeaten to unranked.
"Football, like life, is about 10 percent what happens and 90 how you
react to it Syracuse coach Paul Pasqualoni said in the dreary aftermath.
"It's going to be important now to see how we react. That's what's gping
to be really important
Fortunately, or maybe unfortunately, the Orangemen have plenty of
experience to fall back on. Only last year they began the season ranked No.
10 and quickly lost their first two games � to North Carolina and
Gordon wins third straight Southern 500,
Winston Million
DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) � Jeff Gordon saves his amazing accomplish-
ments for the race track. At home, he's just like you and me.
"I live a normal life. Just like you, just like the fans said Gordon, who
captured the Winston Million on Sunday by winning is third straight
Southern 500 - two of his sports' most unique feats.
Yet. whenever he's introduced these days, there are as many boos as
hurrahs. The public sees him as privileged and spoiled, with a covergirl
wife and a charmed existence.
"I wish everybody could spend a week with us Gordon said, "fcople
need to understand, we do laundry, we pay bills. It's just on a different
A very different scale, unless you're a 26-year-old who has earned more
than S13 million in just five years on the Winston Cup circuit. And
that figures to grow even greater when Gordon hits his prime.
"Brooke and I have a great life and everything he says, "but to say it's
perfect, I don't know what that is
Let's help figure that out, at least on the track. No racer in history had
won the Southern 500 three years in a row � not The Silver Fox, David
Pearson; not The Intimidator, Dale Earnhardt; not The King, Richard
Only Bill Elliott had won the Winston Million bonus before, way back
in 1985. A driver could make a Hall of Fame career out of Gordon's resume
- 28 victories and a Winston Cup title.
Comets make history, WNBA looks to future
HOI 'STON (AP) � At rhe same time rhe Houston Comers were making
history by becoming the first WNBA champion, the league was already
looking to the future.
- The Comets beat the New York Liberty 65-51 Saturday to win the title,
capping a successful first season for the women's league that is considering
expanding from eight to 10 teams for the 1998 season.
"Years from now when women's basketball is going great and they have
one of those trivia questions about who won the first title, they'll say the
Houston Comets Comets coach Van Chancellor said. "Nobody else can
ever say they won the first WNBA title
Houston began the season without star Sheryl Swoopes, who didn't join
the team until late July after giving birth June 25. Cynthia Cooper, who had
25 points in the title game, earned the league's MVP trophy and was the
only unanimous all-WNBA selection.
The Comets won when it counted, and so did the WNBA in its first sea-
son. President Val Ackerman said before Saturday's title game that the
league's only surprises were good ones.
Looking to next season, Ackerman said she hopes there will be a longer
schedule and more teams.
"It's my hope that when the NBA Board of Governors meets in its
entirety in November in New York, that we're going to be able to recom-
mend to them that we expand by two teams next season Ackerman said.
She wouldn't say where the teams would be located, but said several
NBA teams were interested in adding WNBA franchises.
Redskins 24, Panthers 10
CHARLOTTE (AP) � It's looking like 1996 all over again for
Washington's Terry Allen. The Carolina Panthers wish they could say the
same thing about the way their year has started.
Allen, who set a franchise record with 1,353 yards rushing last year and
led the NFL with 21 touchdowns, ran for 141 yards and two scores to
power the Redskins to a 24-10 victory over error-prone Carolina on Sunday
"Teams are going to have to key on Terry because he is going to be a
force quarterback Gus Frerotte said after Washington saddled the
Panthers with their first loss in the 10-game history of Ericsson Stadium.
"It wasn't easy said Allen, who rushed 25 times. "Once you get up on
a team, then you're able to come out and run the ball more, and that's what
we wanted to do � finish the game running the ball
Carolina allowed just one touchdown in the second half all last season
at Ericsson, but Washington doubled that total Sunday night, when the
Panthers had four turnovers. The Redskins converted three of those into
17 points on the way to snapping the Panthers' seven-game regular-season
winning streak.
"We weren't as sharp as we need to be coach Dom Capers said. "The
kev is always how you respond to these things
Carolina had the third-best turnover differential in the NFL last year,
helping the Panthers win the NFC West and advance to the NFC champi-
onship game in just the franchise's second year.

of these facilities. Current university
identification is needed to check out
materials at any of the libraries. The
libraries are also open to the public.
Joyner Library, located on the west end
of the main campus, is the main
campus library. It holds over a million
volumes and has many electronic
resources. It supports undergraduate
and graduate study as well as faculty
research and teaching.
The Music Library, a branch of Joyner, is
located on the first floor of the Fletcher

Joyner Library Building Project: "And the Move Goes On"
As Fall Semester 1997 begins, Phase II
of the Joyner Library Building Project
remains on schedule. If you have been
away for the summer, you will notice
several changes that have taken place in
the past three months. These changes
were made in anticipation of the
completion of Phase II, which is
scheduled for the end of 1997.
While you were away, the collections
that were located on the second and
third floors of the west wing (old
building) have been moved to one of
two places. Books and journals from
1990 to the current date have been
shifted to the third floor new building.
Journals older than 1990 have been
transported to off-campus storage for
the duration of the building project.
The relocation of these parts of the
library's collections will cause some
inconvenience to students, faculty, and
staff. We apologize in advance for the
inconvenience but had no choice, as
the library temporarily loses about one-
third of its space while Phase III
renovation takes place.
Steps have been taken to facilitate
access to the journals that have been
relocated to off-campus storage. A

(on the east aide, opposite the new
dock tower) will open with the
start of spring semester 1996.
courier makes twice-a-day trips to the
warehouse to bring back materials.
Where possible, copies of journal
articles will be faxed to offices or to the
library's circulation desk for pick-up.
Finally, when patrons have long runs of
journals to work with, they may make
arrangements to go to the storage
facility. Individuals needing items in
storage should present their requests to

the library's circulation desk.
Another change you may notice is the
closing of the microcomputer lab that
was located on the third floor west
wing. This facility closed at the end of
second summer session in preparation
for the Phase II move. There will be no
microcomputer lab in the library during
Phase III renovation. When the Joyner
Library Building Project is completed,
services previously available through
the microcomputer lab will be available
in a different manner.
Although the summer has been spent
on a variety of activities preparing for
the move into Phase n renovated space,
much of the work will occur toward
the end of Fall Semester. Every effort
will be made to minimize the disrup-
tion and inconvenience to patrons that
may occur but some persons will
inevitably be disturbed by the activity.
library patrons may find that access to
the third floor west wing (old building)
is closed. The reason for this measure is
that some space is needed to stage
ture that is going to
be placed in Phase
II space.
When the university
accepts the Phase II
space as meeting
the specifications
and requirements of
the building
contract, there will
be a ninety day
move-in period to
occupy the Phase U
space and vacate
Phase in space. This
means that there will be a substantial
amount of work taking place in a
concentrated period. A number of
deliveries of furniture, equipment, and
shelving will take place during this
period. While some of these deliveries
will be made to the library's receiving
dock, others may be made through the
existing library entrance. Every effort
will be made to minimize inconven-
ience to library patrons and provide for
their safety.
Three library units and one non-library
service will relocate as part of Phase II.
Library administrative offices will be
the first to move, as their transfer will
not interfere with patron use of the
collections or services. The Reference
and Library Systems Departments will
move after the end of Fall Semester's
finals week. The relocation of the
Copiserv service will take place at the
end of the semester, too.
Joyner Library will be closed from the
end of Fall Semester finals week until
the day before Spring Semester classes
begin. The reason for closing is to
enable the move to be completed and
service restored before the start of
spring semester. During a portion of
this period the university will be closed
for the holidays. The Music Library will
be open those days the university is
open and patrons will be able to have
materials retrieved from Joyner for
them. During some portion of this
period the online catalog and other
electronically based resources will be
inaccessible as the library's Systems
Department will be moving equipment.
When Spring Semester 1998 begins,
there will be some immediate and

of the old west wing have been moved

obvious changes. First, the public
entrance to the library will have moved
from its location on the north side ol
the building to the new entry on the
east side of the building. Library
patrons coming from the campus mall
will pass through the library columns
on their way through the library plaza
to access the new entrance. Library
patrons coming from Tenth Street will
use the new entrance to campus that
leads to the library plaza and the
library's entrance.
Phase in of the Joyner Library Expan-
sion and Renovation Project is sched-
uled to begin in early January 1998 and
be completed by summer 1998. The
beginning of the end is at hand.
The current entrance to Joyner will be closed
at the end of fall semester 1997.

materials pertaining to eastern North
Carolina�counties east of Interstate 95.
Included in the collection are electronic
resources, books, pamphlets, periodi-
cals (magazines and journals), state
documents, maps, and broadsides, as
well as an extensive vertical file and up-
to-date newspaper clipping file. Micro-
film holdings include state newspapers
dating from the eighteenth century to
the present, census records for all
North Carolina counties (1790-1920),
and Sanborn Insurance Company maps.
In the online library catalog, called

MLA and Turanian.
A number of handouts which list the
major reference works on various
subjects are available to a kiosk near the
desk. There are also handouts on
special topics, like career information
or biographical information.
The Reference Department has a large
collection of print and electronic
reference sources. It resembles an
electronic data center with many CD-
ROMs, the library catalog (Horizon),
and Internet access.
CD-ROMs that must be used at stand-
alone workstations can be checked out
from the Reference desk. These may be
periodical indexes or compilations of
data, such as company annual reports,
or fuU-text works, such as historical
documents and encyclopedias.
ProQuest (general, business, social
science) and InfoTrac are two popular
periodical indexes to the collection.
You can sign up for ProQuest stations at
the desk, if you want to reserve time to
work here.
Reference books in die collection include
general and specialized encyclopedias,
dictionaries, bibliographies, indexes,
yearbooks, almanacs, manuals, directories,

North Carolina topics, U. S. naval and
maritime history, military affairs,
missionary life around the world, and
tobacco history.
The University Archives is responsible
for preserving the university's history
by f�Mfaitaining its official records and

Before the current building and renovation project began, Joyner Library seriously
lacked space for students and faculty to study and do research. The new addition
and renovated east wing improve that situation considerably. There are many carrels
and tables now that provide quiet places for study and research. Many of these are
on the second and third floors of the new addition.
Also, eight group
study rooms axe
available in the new
addition: five on the
second floor at both
ends of the floor and
three on the third floor
at the east end. De-
signed for use by four
to eight people, they
are available on a first-
come, first-serve basis
and cannot be re-
served. Groups of
three or fewer can find
tables for quiet group
projects in various areas
around the library. The group study rooms are not soundproofed or intended for
class instruction; furniture or equipment should not be moved into or out of these
rooms; and the library's no4bod-and-drink policy applies to the study rooms.
Graduate students may apply for the use of special carrels designed specifically
for their needs. These carrels have drawers that can be locked and an electric oudet
for laptop computers. Priority is given to graduate students enrolled full-time in
graduate degree programs. The need for proximity to library materials is also
considered. Assignments are made at the beginning of each semester and are
generally not renewable. A refundable key deposit of ten dollars is required.
Interested graduate students should fill out an appi: ation at the Circulation Desk on
the first floor.
Faculty studies are available to ECU faculty, with riority given to tenure-track
faculty working on terminal degrees or publications necessary for reappointment
and tenure. The need for proximity to library materials is also considered. Faculty
studies are assigned each September on an annual basis or for the length of time
required for a project, if less than a year. Assignments are generally not renewable.
A refundable key deposit of twenty-five dollars is required. Interested faculty should
fill out an application at the Circulation Desk.

How to Find a Book
1. If you are looking for a specific book, use the ECU Library Catalog to find the
call number. The library catalog, called Horizon, is available on computers
throughout the library under the ECU Library Catalog icon. In Horizon select
'Title Alphabetical" or "Author Alphabetical To find books on a particular
subject, try looking for the subject word or words using the "Tide Keyword
"Subject Alphabetical or "Subject Keyword" selections. The call number is
shown near the top of the catalog record and will tell you where the book is
located in the library.
2. Write down the call number and notice whether Horizon identifies the book
as being in the regular circulating collection (Joyner Stacks) or if it is in a particu-
lar collection, such as Reserve, Reference, North Carolina Collection, or Curricu-
lum (abbreviated Curr). Notice also if the book is checked out right now. If the
book is in the stacks, refer to the guides found by the elevators to tell you where
in the stacks your call number can be found. Once you're in the stacks, look for
call numbers on the ends of the stacks to guide you. Note: some books are being
shifted because of renovation. If you can't find the range of call numbers where
your book is located, please ask a staff member to assist you.
Books are organized by subject according to the Library of Congress classifica-
tion scheme. You may find other books relevant to your topic in the same
section as your book. The Library of Congress classification scheme breaks
down into these areas:
General Works (such as encyclopedias)
Philosophy, Psychology, Religion
Auxiliary Sciences of History
History: General and Old World
History: America (Western Hemisphere)
Geography, Maps, Anthropology, Recreation
Social Sciences: Economics
Social Sciences: Sociology
Political Science
Music (in Music Library)
Fine Arts
Languages and Literature
Includes PN (General literature),
PS (American Literature)
Medicine (see also Health Sciences Library)
Military and Naval Science
Bibliography, Library Science
3. If you want to check out the book you have found, take it to the Circulation
Desk on the first floor of the new addition. To check out a book, you will need
your ECU H with a current enrollment sticker on it. At the time of check-out,
ask about loan periods and renewal policies. The library has different loan
periods for different types of materials and borrowers. Note: If you have over-
due books or fines to be paid, you must take care of these obligations before you
can check out additional books. Fines accrue twenty-five cents per day for
books and one dollar per day for videos.
4. If you need help at any time in finding an appropriate book or a specific
book, please ask a staff member for help. The Reference staff can recommend
bibliographies and search techniques. The Circulation staff can help track down
a book that should be on the shelves. They will be glad to assist you.
How to Find an Article
1. tf you want to find an article in a periodical (a magazine, journal, or newspaper),
you need to search first in an index for what has been published on your subject.
Indexes provide bibliographic citations or references to articles and may also
include abstracts or brief summaries. Joyner Library has a vast array of indexes in
both print and electronic formats. Indexes in CD-ROM format are now available in
most disciplines. Some journals and indexes are available on the Internet.
Many of die CD-ROM periodical indexes are available throughout the library on
networked computers. Others must be used on standalone workstations. These stand-
alone or non-networked CD-ROMs can be obtained from various departments: Refer-
ence, Government Documents, and Music Library. Handouts listing what CD-ROMs are
available and instructions on how to use them are provided in these departments.
Some popular CDROM indexes are ERIC (education); Reader's Guide (for articles from
popular magazines); PsycINFO (psychology); MIA (language and literature); and the
General Science Index (biological and physical sciences). InfoTrac offers both a
general periodicals index and the National Newspaper index (covers five major U.S.
newspapers for about the last three years).
Three types of ProQuest indexes arc available on different workstations in the
Reference Department: general, social sciences, and business. From ProQuest you
can print out the full image (text and illustrations) of many, although not all, of the
articles included. You may reserve time to use certain ProQuest workstations by
signing up at the Reference Desk.
New electronic resources: new this fall arc several online sources of journal articles.
JSTOR offers full-image articles from twenty-six scholarly journals in the fields of
ecology, education, finance, history, mathematics, political science, and population
studies. MUSE offers full-text articles from forty-four scholarly journals in the
classics, education, film, theater, and performing arts, history and cultural studies,
Judaic studies, literary theory, mathematics, philosophy and political science. PQD
(ProQuest Direct) offers access to full-text articles from General Periodicals Online
(Research II Edition) and ABIInform (Business Periodicals Online Global Edition).
REVEAL is an automated service that delivers the tables of contents of periodicals.
STAT-USA gives access to business and economic data from the U. S. Department of
Commerce. These are available at any networked workstation in the library or any
workstation connected to the campus network.
2. Write down the citations that interest you. The citation includes the author and title
of the article, the journal the article is in (tide, date, volume number), and the page
numbers. Or print the citations out on some of the CD-ROM and online products.
3. Determine if joyner Library owns the periodical by checking in the ECU Library
Catalog, called Horizon. In Horizon, seach under the "Title Alphabetical" selection.
Use the name of the journal you're looking for, not the title of the article. Press
"Enter You might also want to check in one of the ProQuest and online products
described above for the full article.
The screen you receive first indicates briefly if the library has the title. Press"Enter"
again to receive fuller information: the volumes and years owned by the library,
whether the library has a current subscription, and so on. Current periodicals are
shelved alphabetically in the Current Periodicals Room and the North Carolina
Collection. Older periodicals may be bound and given a call number, like books, or
be available in a microform format, such as microfilm. Horizon tells you the call
number, collection, and format in which the periodical can be found. Write down
the appropriate information. Handouts listing what periodicals Joyner currently
subscribes to in various subject areas are available in the Reference Department.
4. Consult the Quick Find Guides and other signs to locate the periodical you need.
Photocopies can be made on self-serve copiers placed throughout the library. Note:
a prepaid copy card is required. Copy cards cost one dollar (includes seventy cents
in copies) and are reusable. If you have any trouble locating the periodical you
need, please ask a staff member for assistance.

How to Find Government Documents and Maps
The staff of the Documents Maps Department can help you find United States
government documents and maps. Joyner Library receives about 80 percent of the
items available to depository libraries, many of which are in the DocumentsMaps
Department. (Until the building renovation is complete, however, most of the
documents received before August 1996 are in storage and may be recalled upon
twenty-four-hour notice.)
Also, staff and patrons may search for documents using a CD-ROM database, GPO on
SilverPlatter, which is available at any workstation on the library s CD-ROM network.
Note: The library's on-line catalog, Horizon, does not generally include U. S. govern-
ment documents, although the Ubrary plans to begin doing so later this year. Some
types of materials, such as laws and regulations, census publications, and Congres-
sional hearings and reports, may be readily located by asking for help at the Docu-
ments service desk.
Other types of documents, such as statistics and court decisions, may be located by
asking in the Reference Department. Many government documents are becoming
available on the Internet, which is accessible from any public workstation in the
North Carolina state government documents are cataloged in Horizon; most of them
are in the North Carolina Collection. Documents from other states are not generally
collected by joyner Ubrary, although some types of documents, such as statistics and
education reports, may be located by asking at the Reference Desk.
Documentary material such as diaries, corporation records, and family records may be
found in the Special CoUecttons Department. Census records for North Carolina are in
dw North Carolina Collection; the 1870 United States Census is on mfcrofflm in the
DocumentsMaps Department.
Topographic and geologic sheet maps for the United States and many foreign coun-
tries are to the DocuinentsMaps Department. Atlases are located in the Reference
How to Search the Internet
The Internet is a worldwide network of computers that are corrected to each other. The
cost of this large network is shared by aH the onjanizattons who are members. Once
you're connected to the Internet, you can access documents, images, and sounds.
Joyrier Lfcrary provkles access to n� fater
throughout the library and ihe Musk: Library. Ttewortatattom are eojpedwim Netscape
browser software running from the �xaiys network. Using Jetscape, or any otr�
browser, you can search the world for iriformatkm on a variety of topics.
Although the Internet is not truly indexed, the way the online catalog (Horizon) is,
there are a few search engines and index services which can help you sort through the
abundance of information to find what you want. Some of the most popular search
engines and indexes are Alta Vista, Excite, InfoSeek, Lycos, Metacrawler, WebCrawier,
and Yahoo, links to these are available on the library's web site.
Basically what search engines do is to use a rough keyword search to retrieve all
occurrences of the keyword) you type in. Many search engines then count the
number of occurrences of the word and assign a relevancy ranking to the sites found.
Such searches can be highly misleadingespeciaily if a site has deliberately placed
certain words on their site to "catch" such keyword searches.
Index services provide a thesaurus of siibjmterim for searching. Sites indexed in this way will
retrieve a more relevant list than the strict keywoTO searching rxovided by weboawkrs.
If you are having difficulty weeding through trivia and non-relevant material on the
Net, ask in the Reference Department for searching techniques and appropriate sites.
Also, the library's home page (web site) provides directed links to some pertinent
subject sites, as well as government sites and bibliographies.
Beginning fcll semester 1997, the new URL for Joyner Library is:
How to find Primary Sources
Using primary sources to do research is an integral part of the university learning
experience. Many courses, particularly upper and graduate level courses in
history, English, and communications, require projects that involve the use of
primary sources.
Primary sources are letters, diaries, reports, minutes, photographs, and other
materials created contemporaneously with the events they record. They provide
first-hand accounts and discuss events as they are taking place. Thus, they
provide documentation for the subsequent study of these events.
Keep in mind that primary sources may be printed: documentary volumes, in
which original letters and other documents are published verbatim, are consid-
ered primary sources and would qualify to meet research requirements. News-
papers and microfilm reproductions of the original sources are also primary
Documentary volumes are located in the general stacks and in the North Caro-
lina Collection. Microfilm sources and newspapers are located in Periodicals
Microforms and in the North Carolina Collection.
The most rewarding class assignment, however, may involve the use of original
unpublished letters, diaries, photographs, scrapbooks, reports, and other
materials available only in Special Couections (Manuscripts, University Archives,
North Carolina Collection, Hoover Collection, and Rare Books). If your project
involves any aspect of East Carolina Umversity's rwst rou can find a great mass of
formation availabte m the Umv If your topic pertains to life in
the United States during the nineteenth or twentieth centuries, be sure to see
what the East Carolina Manuscript Collection has to offer, exciting original
documents pertaining to slavery, the Civil War and every modern war in which
America has participated, economic and political issues, women's and minority
studies, and many other subjects. The Special Collections staff is available to
assist you in the use of a variety of finding aids.
The Special Collections Department is located on the fourth floor of the new
addition. Go to the third floor and follow the purple neon ceiling light to the
back elevator near the North Carolina Collection (in the circular drum area of
the new addition). Take the elevator to the fourth floor - tbis elevator provides
the only access to Ok fourth floor and Special Collections.
How to Tind Reserve Materials
Faculty sometimes place books, copies of articles, or other materials on reserve
for their classes to use. The purpose is to guarantee access to the items by a
large number of students within a certain time period. To find reserve items:
In the library online catalog (Horizon), click on one of these selections:
professor's name or course name.
Type in the appropriate information, for example: Smith, John or ACCT 3420.
Highlight the item(s) you want and dick on "Show Detail ,�
The call number is given in the upper left corner. Write it down and ask for it at
the CirculationReserve desk.
If an item is on Reserve by multiple professors or courses, the item wffl be
displayed only once. If your search is unsuccessful, please come to the Circula-
tionReserve desk for assistance.
Copies of articles can be used for two hours in the reading room or can be
checked out for iihlibrary use for two hours only- All books can be checked out
for rwohour use in the library, and some books are designated to be checked
out overnight (an hour before closing) or for a week. Current ECU identification
is needed to check out reserve items.


Music Library
The Music Library is the resource
facility for music information and
materials at East Carolina University.
Its collection includes over 55,000
books, scores, periodicals, and sound
recordings that represent all types and
periods of music. A branch of Joyner
.Library, the Music Library offers the
same services as the main library,
including reference assistance, com-
puter searching of bibliographic
databases, delivery service, card-
operated copy machine, and reader-
printers for microforms. Its media
center has computer workstations and
playback equipment for LPs, compact
discs, audfocassettes, videocassettes,
laserdiscs, and interactive CD-ROMs.
Reproduction of commercially pro-
duced recordings is prohibited. The
library enforces a no taping policy.
Undergraduates may borrow

'library an appropriate note.
Faculty library cards allow an
extended circulation period for most
materials, but materials borrowed by
faculty may be recalled at any time for
the Reserve Collection and, after a
period of 28 days, for another user.
The Music Library does not allow
patrons to charge materials out with
another patron's library card.
Materials on reserve for course
assignments are housed at the circula-
tion desk. Listings of reserve materials
by course number and fiiculty name are
kept at the circulation desk and on the
Library's online catalog, called Horizon.
Certain items on reserve may be
checked out overnight.
The Music Library acts as a liaison
with Joyner's Interiibrary Services
Department. It accepts requests for
interiibrary loan for materials not
owned by the Music Library.
