Incomplete campaign filings make for light ballot
mJian �J but also the fact that candidates did not follow InnrH�fnrrhmi�i.�r. .�� �j
expense reports forced to
add names to ballot
ASSISTANT NKWS KOI Till
Students who voted Wednesday for the candi-
dates running for the Student Government
Association (SGA) Legislature should have
made a startling discovery: only three candi-
dates s names appeared on the ballot.
This figure is much lower than the amount
of students needed to fill positions. There are
11 class officer positions to fill, 37 day rep posi-
tions and two hall reps for every residence hall
housing over 350 students and one for every
residence hall housing under 350 students.
The fact there are only three candidates is
not only due to a low turnout for the positions,
but also the fact that candidates did not follow
the rules and meet three requirements.
"According to the constitution you have to
do three things, you have to file (for the posi-
tion), then they have to attend a mandatory
meeting, then they have to file an expense
report said Scott Forbes, SGA president.
Expense reports must be filed and turned
in whether a candidate has spent any money
on their campaign.
Out of all the students running for legisla-
ture a total of three students turned in their
"At the meeting it was announced to turn in
expense reports. Only three day reps did, that
is why there are only three on the ballot said
Forbes. "People just did not understand.
Everyone did their job except for the candi-
Now that this problem has been estab-
lished in this year's election, there must be a
resolution to prevent it from happening again
in future elections.
"The biggest improvement is going to have
to come from the student population said
In order for there to be a better turn out for
future elections students are going to have to
become more involved.
"I wish all the people (from various organi-
zations) who were complaining last year would
stop talking and start acting said Forbes.
"Active participation is what we need
The legislative branch of SGA is a very sig-
nificant pan of SGA.
"The legislative branch is the largest and
supposed to be the most diverse branch of the
SGA. It is their job to represent the needs of
all students. The problem is the students are
not coming forward, the problem is they won't
make a difference said Forbes.
Those students who applied for candidacy
and did not turn in their expense reports were
still able to run for a position as a write-in can-
didate, which many of these students have
chosen to do.
Many of the students who showed up to
vote for write-in candidates were turned away
because those running the polls did not know
how to do so.
This problem was solved approximately an
hour and a half into the elections.
"I wish poll workers had been a little more
educated about write-in candidates from the
beginning said Forbes.
As a result of having so few candidates run-
ning for legislature, SGA must concern itself
with the quality of students they receive.
"My personal goal was to have more stu-
dents running than there are positions, by
virtue of competition the legislature would
have the better candidates Forbes added.

Federal financial aid is up for reevaluation
this year and may possibly be adjusted in
favor of the students.

Since the former ECU Medical Foundation
president's indictment earlier this month,
other medical schools have reviewed there

Jim Copeland, president of of the
Medical Foundation of North Carolina,
Incorporated, said that since the indictment
was made, he has reviewed the procedures
and runnings at UN'C.
"I did, after reading the articles, sit down
and rethink things at our foundation to
determine if any areas were at risk for misus-
es Copeland said.
"I think whenever something like this
happens all nonprofits (organizations) take
stock in operations and control in use of
funds Copeland said.
One of the concerns for Copeland was the
handling of gifts received. After reviewing
the procedures there, he feels their proce-
dures are solid.
Copeland said that at UNC's medical
foundation, funds are kept separate from
medical school funds. Also, two signatures

original receipts are required for reimburse-

Steve McLawhorn is busy, but he hopes voters

McLawhorn, a 25-year-old physics major
who will graduate in May, is seeking the
District 3 seat on the City Council.
He faces a race against Inez Fridley, an
ECU employee who has served on the council
for 12 years. McLawhorn said a student ran
against his opponent last time and lost by only
"That kind of response from the college
students would be a sign that some things

being neglected. Because the property was
really not maintained, McLawhorn said, it was
McLawhorn, a full-time student, says that
balancing school and the city council (if elect-
ed) will be tough but possible.
"Essentially the way my courses are going
to run, from here on out, because most of my
courses are mathematical I will not have to
take more than three classes each semester.
So that leaves me with a lot more time
McLawhorn said he wants to be the stu-

of his top causes � the occupancy law, crimes
against students and
Greenville's parking sit-

are for rent and if you can have only two other

Crime is another target of McLawhorn's
platform� especially unresolved crimes
"Unfortunately the percentage of unre-
solved crimes against college students is way
too high as far as the petty larcenies and things
like that. I would really like to see a little bit
of a push from the city council to straighten
that out and get a little more attention paid to
it he said. "Eventually I would like to see
some sort of Community Watch program set
up. It's a little difficult because since stu-
dents are so transient, they don't really get to
know their neighbors very well. If we could
get it set up it would be of enormous benefit
Also a concern for McLawhorn is
Greenville's parking situation, especially areas
in which parking is not allowed 1-6 a.m.
"While they (ciry council) may have a good
reason to get those cars out of there, I can't
find one. All it does is encourage people to

McLawhorn feels his down-to-earth per-
sonality and his good sense of right from wrong
will prepare him for the position on the city
council if he is elected.

The East Carolinian
Cardiologist's work recognized
A member of the ECU medical school has been featured
in two magazines for his extensive research and hard
work in the field of cardiology.
Dr. Randolph Chitwood, chair of the department of
surgery, and chief of cardiothoracic surgery is being rec-
ognized for inventing and perfecting techniques for min-
inalry-invasive mitral valve surgery. Chitwood will be fea-
tured in the October issue of Southern Living as one of
"America's 100 Best Doctor's He will also be featured
in Tern and Country's "Guide to the Best Doctors in
Dr. James A. Haliock, dean of the School of
Medkinc, believes that Chitwood is deserving of all the
recognition he is receiving.
"Dr. Chirwood is a pioneer in his field. He has revo-
lutionalized and leads the way in this new surgery. Dr.
Chitwood is an international leader in this field said
Oc3n Hail lock.
Chitwood has a family history in the medical field.
Both his father and his grandfather were doctors before
him. Much of what he knows was learned from watching
their bedside manner. Chitwood's father used to tell him
he had to make house calls with him after school.
Chitwood remembers opening the gate to the farm while
his father went in so that the cows would not get out of
"Then making house calls was a nuisance, but now it
has led to fond memories and a romantic story. It was
also the beginning of my interest in medicine said
After attending medical school at the University of
Virginia, Chitwood entered into a ten-year academic
surgery residency at Duke University. Chitwood has
been at Pitt Memorial since 1984, and started the heart

Some students have had discouraging
experiences at the computer labs on
campus recently. Many complaints
seem to be centered around receiving
inadequate instruction from lab assis-
tants. Although complaints from the
student body arc frequent, the lab
assistants seem to disagree.
"We are all doing our best said
Steve Radabiugh, an assistant at the
Aycock computer lab.
In order to become a computer lab
assistant you must submit an applica-
tion and attend a one day, eight hour
training session. Some students feel
that the training of these individuals
is not up to par.
" I have gone to the computer lab
numerous times and have found that
either what 1 need is unavailable, not
in working order, or my questions go
unanswered by the assistants on
staff said Megan McLaughlin, a
freshman in elementary education.
The e-mail systems in the labs
sometimes go off-line.
"The first day of class was the day
this new system was opened for stu-
dent use. This v�r'� ww� is brand
new, so it has been a learning experi-
ence for us all said Radabaugh.

Free concert fulfilled community service
CARRBORO, N.C. (AP) � When the Squirrel Nut Zippers did a hometown concert here last week, drummer Chris
Phillips said the band wanted to "give something back to the community"
As it turns out, the two-hour concert iso fulfilled Phillips' 24-hour community service obligation for a charge of dit-
hillips and Carrboro's mayor, Mike Nebon, said Tuesday that the concert was planned for months before anyone
knew it would provide a convenient way for Phillips to complete his sentence.
Phillips is the band member who approached Nelson about doing the shov. The band had achieved national acclaim
with its most recent CD, "Hot and the members said they wanted to do something for the town where they began.
Phillips said the band usually would command $25,000 or more for such a concert.
Phillips was charged with driving while impaired May 18 after a Chapel Hill police officer saw Zippers producer
Michael Napolitano mooning through a car window about 4 a.m.
Stenographer agrees to turn over trial tapes
DURHAM (AP) � The court stenographer who had been refusing to provide a transcript of a murder trial said she will
turn over her tapes to the court.
Patty McMann-Byrd said Tuesday that she will to obey a judge's order to hand over her notes and tat es of one of
Durham's longest murder trials.
McMann-Byrd was contracted to produce the transcript in the murder trial of Todd Boggess, who was sentenced to
death earlier this year for the 1995 killing of Danny Pence. Boggess stole the Wilmington youth's car and beat him to
death on a Durham County back road.
McMann-Byrd had said she would defy a court order to complete the trial transcript by Jan. 3 unless the court sys-
tem paid her what she says the work is worth � $58,000. The state fee was $28,500.
Last Friday, Superior Court Judge Oriando Hudson issued an order directing her to turn over the tapes for copying.
UNC Board of Governors won't vote on bible colleges
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) �The policyooard that oversees the University of North Carolina system says it no longer
wants to vote on exempting bible colleges from state licensing rules.
Members of the Board of Governors and the former UNC system president have said their votes imply that the board
approves the schools' programs. Some board members say the law should be changed.
"It implies that the University of North Carolina board approves said former system president CD. Spangler Jr. dur-
ing a discussion at a June board meeting. The board voted in September to eliminate the exemption chore, which is
required by law, to its staff. . .
But one bible college administrator, Tamra Wood of Vintage Bible College in Winston-Salem, said it s clearly under-
stood that the exemption isn't an approval of the college's curriculum quality
CHICAGO (AP) � Some women
with a severe form of premenstrual
syndrome that cripples them emo-
tionally can be helped by the anti-
depressant Zoloft, a new study
The drug's maker, Pfizer Inc
funded the study of 200 sufferers at
a dozen medical centers nationwide.
About 62 percent of the women
given Zoloft showed "much or very
much improvement" compared
with 34 percent of women given a
placebo, the researchers reported in
today's issue of The Journal of the
American Medical Association.
Previous research has found
other antidepressants � Anafranil,
Prozac and Paxil � effective in
treating severe menstrual symp-
toms, the researchers noted.
The Zoloft group improved in
psychological and social functioning
in a way similar to patients with
major depression, the researchers
Premenstrual complaints are
common among women of child-
bearing age, ranging from breast
tenderness and bloating to anxiety
and mood swings, but the most
severe symptoms afflict only 3 per-
cent to 5 percent of menstruating
women, researchers said.
The severe form of PMS can sig-
nificantly impair the ability to work
and to relate to others, with symp-
toms that may include poor concen-
tration, depression and anger.
Federal regulators last year
warned Pfizer against promoting the
drug for uses that had not passed
federal review and been approved
by the Food and Drug
Administration, including treat-
ment of PMS. But doctors are not
barred from prescribing a drug that
has been approved for one purpose
for another purpose.
A call to the FDA for comment
Tuesday was not returned.
An editorial accompanying the
study said that, besides contributing
to knowledge about effective treat-
ments for premenstrual dysphoric
disorder, or severe PMS, the
research may help scientists find its

Congress expected to approve funding for 30 helicopters
STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) Congress is expected to approve a defense package that includes funding for 30 heli-
copters and will help head off layoffs at Sikorsky Aircraft, Connecticut lawmakers say.
A compromise defense appropriations bill is expected be brought to the House and Senate on Thursday. That
bill will include funding for 28 Sikorsky Black Hawk and two Seahawk helicopters, members of the state's
Congressional delegation said Monday.
President Clinton's 1998 budget had included funding for only 18 Black Hawk helicopters, which threatened to
force up to 1,000 layoffs at Sikorsky's plant. Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Conn, said it is vital that Sikorsky get the

Huge World War II bomb found in Russian City
MOSCOW (AP) A man preparing to build a new house for himself unearthed a 550-pound aerial bomb from World
War II on Monday in the central Russian city of Voronezh.
Bomb experts had to blow up the explosive on site because its detonator was rusted almost ail the way through
and it could not be moved, said Alexander Svistovtsev, an Emergency Situations Ministry official in Voronezh.
The ITAR-Tass news agency said the bomb, buried 8 feet underground, was the largest of seven Wbrld War II aer-
ial bombs found and deactivated in Russia this year.
Voronezh is about 300 miles south of Moscow.
NASA astronaut to possibly go on dangerous mission
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) � NASA's chief reviewed two final safety reports Wednesday before deciding
whether to send astronaut David Wolf on a long and possibly perilous mission aboard Mil
Daniel Goldin was expected to make his decision late Wednesday, but not make it public until Thursday morn-
ing, just hours before space shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to leave for the decrepit Russian station on a night flight.
President Clinton was expected to support whatever decision NASA makes.
The space agency has never waited so close to a launch to make such a major announcement regarding an astro-
naut and his flight.
Wolf seemed unfazed by the rumors and speculation. He joked with his crewmates and gave a thumbs-up during
a gathering of friends and family at the launch pad.

Who does the ECU administration think they are, anyway? Do they think they can play king
of the mountain in the surrounding Greenville community as well as here on campus?
When it was announced earlier this month that ECU was seeking an injunction against down-
town music store Skuliy's to force them to stop using their skull and crossbones logo with ECU's
purple and gold colors, many students were confused, to say the least. Businesses and organi-
zations all over town use purple and gold or various pirate or sea motifs in their decorating and
advertising. This is a college town, after all. What is so different about Skuliy's using these same
ECU's official position is that it is Skuliy's combination of school colors, along with the skull
and crossbones, that they are seeking to put a stop to. They also point out the skull and cross-
bones symbol is one used by ECU in the past as an official symbol, adding to their proof that
Skuliy's is trying to represent itself as affiliated with ECU and, in so doing, hop on the market-
ing bandwagon (although, of course, they don't admit to money being the primary motivation
for their actions).
To that reasoning we give the following responses: first of all, no one should be able to copy-
right colors. Secondly, the skull and crossbones logo is such an often-used, generic symbol we
don't believe ECU has the right to lay claim to that either, and they can hardly expect that no
one else in town is ever going to use it again. As for the school's assertion that "we were using
it first what are they, a bunch of preschoolers in the sandbox? Even if they were playing with
it first, they aren't anymore. Pee Dee the Pirate is now the university's official, recognized mas-
cot and symbol, and ECU needs to give up the ghost on the skull and crossbones logo.
Another, perhaps even more absurd development followed in the week after ECU's official
suit against the Skuliy's store. Pirate Underground, a part of ECU's Student Union, began using
a logo they had developed, a kind of school seal with a skull in the middle. They were told bv
ECU's powers-that-be they would have to discontinue use of the symbol.
Our first reaction to that was, why? They're not hurting anything. They're not trying to make
money off the logo.
ECU's official reason was that the seal said "East Carolina University" on the perimeter of the
seal, which was an obvious attempt to identify themselves with the University. Well, duh,
they're an University organization�who else are they supposed to affiliate themselves with?
They also said that they did not believe the skull symbol was an appropriate way for the
University to be represented. Apparently they're concerned that someone will take offense.
Get over it, ECU. That symbol has been used as a warning of poison, it has been used as a
pirate's flag, as a symbol of death, which we admit are all negative associations. But the symbol
has become so commonplace, so trite, that it really doesn't have those connotations anymore.
And, finally the money issue. Skuliy's has made a lot of money from their stickers and other
paraphenalia which show their skull and crossbones logo. Could it be that ECU is miffed that
they didn't think of marketing that symbol themselves? Could it be they are disappointed in the
marketability of Pee Dee the Pirate, and that is why there have been reports of new trademarks
Whatever their official explanations for their actions in this situation, the majority of students
don't seem to get it. We at The East Carolinian agree. The University is being petty and selfish
in its claim that there aren't enough purple and gold colors or skull and crossbones symbols to
go around. And they may want to consider if they strike out at the businesses of this town, they
may regret it. Because while it is true this is a college town, and the businesses here make a lot
of profit from the business that ECU brings to Greenville, it is also true that those same busi-
nesses contribute to this school and its students. It's a partnership of sorts between the school
and the community in this town, and we don't understand why ECU is trying to spoil it just so
they can have it all.

Skuliy's lawsuit unjustified
Recently an article appeared in your
paper concerning the business located
in downtown Greenville called
Skuliy's. I want to add a few thoughts
to your article and perhaps raise a few
questions with the students and staff
The primary question I would like
to know is, is there a better way for
ECU funds and resources to be spent?
Do the students of ECU support this
kind of action against a local business
that has provided valuable and desired
services to the community for many
It is, after all, your interest as stu-
dents that they (the ECU legal
department and the North Carolina
Board of Governors are claiming to
protect. I say claiming because I, for
one, take issue against any large cor-
poration that tries to squash other
businesses through insurmountable
legal action. It appears to many of us
in the community that ECU thinks
that when Skuliy's is faced with a bot-
tomless pit of legal action they will
have to discontinue doing business.
The owners of Skuliy's are named
Tom and Rebecca. They are a married
couple who have run a business in
downtown Greenville for 17 years.
They arc, for lack of a better term,
good people. They not only presently
hire ECU students, they have done so
for all those years mentioned before-
Of course the issue here is not
whether Tom and Rebecca are nice,
the issue is what, if anything, can be
done to bring this action by the unac-
countable powers at ECU to an imme-
diate halt? Fat chance, but here goes
some thoughts. If you think that ECU
should not be taking this action, then
it is your responsibility to take action
and make some phone calls. Please
call the Chancellor and Ben Irons at
328-6940 and tell them that you are a
student and you don't want your
money spent this way.

Plutonium is one of the most dan-

one pound of plutonium if evenly dis-

None of this is considered serious
enough by our free, independent,
objective and piercingly investigative
media to make the evening news.
They would rather talk about Tiger or

may be just the prelude to nuclear

If you are strongly opinionated, love
talking about anything and every-
thing and have lots of spare time,
then you too can be an opinion
Well, this may come as a surprise
to some (especially my friends) but
there really is a bit more to the pic-
ture. Let me try and explain.
Media expert and author, Dough
Newsom, says that writing a column
is the "ultimate in journalistic free-
dom It lets the writer indulge in
creative expression and personal
opinion that would not be appropri-
ate in any other kind of story.
Rules can be broken and more
often than not, they are. Opinion
columnists talk about themselves and
others; they pass judgment and fre-
quently ask readers for their com-
ments and recommendations. As
Newsom says, "Columnists violate
most the accepted tenets of news
TEC has other regular opinion
columnists besides myself. During
the last three semesters, we have cov-
ered various topics like parking prob-
lems, ordinance regulations, students
fees, wedding dilemmas, drug testing
As you can see, topics range from
the obscure and philosophical to sub-
ject-specific. And let's not leave out
the humorous as well as whimsical
pieces. Taken together, these
columns paint a somewhat accurate
picture of the columnists themselves.
To be honest, it's not easy finding
a subject to write about every week,
let alone one that will interest a read-
er. I usually take several informal
polls of my classmates which is very
helpful. Their input, opinions and
experiences are important as are the
two to three hours of research and
interviews I do for every column. Of
course, each columnist has hisher
own method and personal style.
Because of the sheer generality
and personal nature of opinion
columns, libel laws and factuality do
not figure very prominently. It's very
seldom that a column is not run. The
worst case scenario is if you have an
editor who is overly sensitive or just
plain afraid of going against the status
quo. A few editors don't fully under-
stand the role of opinion columnists
and are basically offended by the lati-
tude offered them. Sometimes, the
column is not printed if it contains a
racist attitude or language or if the
tone of the column is mean-spirited
and the view is skewered.
Either way, you are most likely to
step on some one's toes, bring a smile
to another's face, cause anger or even
elicit a response of "I can relate to
TEC's opinion columns were
recently discussed in one of my class-
es. The reviews were mixed�as
expected. Our pieces were described
as boring, okay, funny, really interest-
ing, informative and cynical. Some
were also said to be "totally sappy, too
personal and repetitive
Well, we try. The fact that stu-
dents are actually reading our
columns is wonderful. And that, in
my opinion, is the best part of all.
I would like to respond to the opinion
of Laura H. Boyd in the Tuesday,
Sept. 23 issue of TEC. I also work out
frequently at the Student Recreation
Center during the mornings. I am also
a taxpayer and a portion of my tuition
helped to fund the SRC and the
salaries of the employees, and I am
also a saint of God. I have heard on
one occasion a contemporary
Christian song. You felt that you had
to suffer through this preaching while
you and your spouse worked out.
Imagine how others feel as we work
out in the facilities that we helped to
fund. Where arc my rights to receive
the benefits of my hard-earned money
from the SRC? Vfe have to suffer
through the various secular music
artists who arc sending all kinds of
messages while we try to enjoy our
work out. Since you have brought it
up, let us sit down and reason togeth-
er. The song I heard did not favor one
religious faith over the other, it told a
testimony of how good God is and has
been to the artist. God is a universal
God and if you are serving anything
else, then you are serving an idol. I
want more Christian music to be play-
ing in the SRC so that I can enjoy my
work out as you want to enjoy yours.
To whom it may concern at the
SRC, we, the saints of God, are part of
ECU's srudent body. We have to
endure more than our share of the sec-
ular spirits on the campus every day,
so do not take the little things that we
have on this campus outside of the
organized groups. "Give in the name
of a prophet and receive a prophet
reward (Matthew 10:41). You do
not know how you may bless, encour-
age or inspire someone who may toe
down or need a little boost to get tjieir
day started right.
To all the other saints, Christians
and organizational leaders, let us take
a stand before it is too late. If we let
them take the small things that we
have gained, how long will it be before
they come after the bigthings? Look
out, ECU gospel choir, New
Generation and all other university

nations or non-denominations that are

a.m. after getting off work. Now I ask
you, the student, where did your
money go? There is poor lighting, dis-
tant parking lots and buses that stop
running at midnight (I have been
told). Have you ever seen a police offi-
cer standing guard in an unsafe park-

intent to protect your from that lurk-
ing assailant hiding behind a full-sized
truck or van? Have you ever noticed

I ask you again: where did you $96 go?
At the time of publishing this letter,
almost two weeks will have elapsed
since the gravel parking lot behind the

When I first arrived at Lilith Fair this
past summer I went to the area des-
ignated for the press conference and
one artist was already there mingling
with the reporters. At the time l did-
n't know who she was, in fact I only
knew she was an artist by her artist
pass. By the end of the conference
though, I knew she was Abra Moore
and knew that she seemed one of the
most carefree people I had ever seen.
This attitude carried over into her
ecletic live set on the second stage,
where she interacted with the crowd
and immediately won people over
with her disarming grin.
As it turns out Moore is no inno-
cent little girl standing on stage try-
ing to make friends. After being born
in California, Moore moved to New
York and, eventually, to Europe. After
playing clubs along England's coast,
Moore ended up at the University of
Hawaii. There she found herself in
the band Poi Dog Pondering, but she
left just before they signed a record
deal with Columbia.
After moving to Austin, Texas,
Moore ended up releasing an inde-
pendent CD produced by Iconard
Cohen's former guitarist, Mitch
Watkins. Finally getting signed to a
major label herself, Moore and
Watkins went back into the studio
and came on with the alternative-
popful album. Strangest Places.
The CD starts off with rhc first
single, "Four Lcai Clovei 'I lover"

singing it weeks later. The lyrics,

the biggest box office success. It tells the story of Dante Hicks

convenience store on his day off. His friend Randal (Jeff
Anderson) works at the video store next door and specializes in
being public-smart-ass number-one. Dante, meanwhile, is having
trouble with his girlfriend partly due to her fondness for fellatio,
but mainly because his ex is getting married. Crudeness. zaniness
and Silent Bob and Jay follow, and you the viewer are left without
an ass, because vou have proceeded to laugh it off during the
course of the film.
Mallrats was Smith's second effort. It was met with critical
panning and with Shannon Doherty's trip back to movies on the
USA network starring Judd Nelson or one of the Coreys. It was
pretty much exactly like Clerks except it was set in a mall and it
was in color. Guy (T.S.) screw up with girl (Rene). Guy (Brodie)
act crude. Guys (Silent Bob and Jay) serve no purpose but be
funny. I thought Mallrats was very funny, but it was not an "unam-
bitious, run-of-the-mill, student film" as the Slacker Movie Guide
called Clerks. It wasn't nearly that good.

This fall WZMB has come back better than ever and is
more in tune to what the students love to hear.
The station has revamped its lineup and changed its
slogan from "East Carolina's Alternative" to

part of what the station
"Since we're here to
cater to ECU and there's
so many different types of y
people, it's like a giant melt-
ing pot said Dave Hennessy, the new Program
1 )irector of WZMB. "So instead of playing all these genres
here and there, w Inch wouldn't flow very well, we give each
type of music its ow n time slot in the evening, so those tans
of that type of music can tune in and listen to three hours
straight of metal or three hours straight of rap. and so on
In addition to specialty show favorites that students
have grown t love, such as tli- Roots Rock show. Club 91
Rap Attack, the Retro Show, the Greatful Dead Show, and
Irie FM, the radio station also carries the Ska Show, the
Super Funk and Soul Show, the Women's Only Hour and
Listenership is already up since the semester has start-
ed, and is looking to grow even larger. And as the audience
grows MB grows with it.
"('hib 91 is starting to take it to the next level, they're
getting some live interviews with such acts as Ilia
Mcoholiks. Were working really close with Walnut Creek
mphitheater, the Ritz in Raleigh, the BlockBuster
Pavillion in Charlotte, House of Blues in Mvrtle Beach.
Boat House in NorfolkJust about any show that comes
through there, we usually get ten to a dozen tickets to give
away said Hennessy.
The station has also increased the amount of live
remotes and free prize giveaways, and for the first time
ever they are broadcasting entire sporting events.
The faculty has been included in the ZMB equation as ,
"We have a real high faculrv listenership for the Blue
Note Cafe , from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday,
as well as the jazz show on the weekends Hennessy said.
Now Sounds is a three hour show dedicated to inde-
pendent music, namely good bands that aren't signed on to
big labels. The ska show plays ska dating from the roots of
Motown to the present, but tends to stay away from main-
stream ska such as No Doubt or the brand new Boss Tones.
Crossover is Christian oriented music. But it doesn't
play gospel type music,
the format tends to go
from rock to rap to

themes and lyrics.
The- Super Funk and
Soul show features
funk sounds from the
seventies on back and blends them into a mix with the
smoother Motown sounds.
The World Music Show offers eclectic sounds from
across the globe, and the Farrot Head Show is strictly a
Jimmy Buffet Bonanza. The RFM show features a big
name DJ each week, miir. it up live with techno, rave
beats, trip-hop and electronica sounds.
WZMB also uITcrs news everyday on the hour, as well as
comedian interviews, sports ralk and campus news talk
shows every Wednesday.
The future for "ZMB looks large. They hope to one day-
be the billing station in all the ECL facilities that use
radio, such as rransit buses, Mendenhall and the Wright
Place, and perhaps even farther into the future, to be able
to hold a WZMB sponsored outdoor concert.
But the most important thing to the station, Hennessy
said, is you, the listeners.

Raleigh filmmaker John Schultz just might be the sav-
ing grace with his recently released film Bandwagon.
Bandwagon is Raleigh native Schultz's feature debut.
Schultz, who has worked on projects with Steven
Speilberg, co-produced the film with fellow UNC grad
Aryson Poole and put it into works with only $350,000. The
film wrapped over two years ago only to be screened once
in Raleigh and to make the rounds in various film festivals,
waiting in limbo for a distributor.
Bandwagon fellows the fictional band Circus Monkey,
tracing its origins in the garage and tentative first steps into
the cutthroat world of touring rock bands.
All four members of Circus Monkey are stereotypes but
well drawn ones. There's Kevin Corrigan as Wynn, the per-
petually stoned but incredibly talented guitarist; Matthew
Hennessey as Charlie, the drummer who talks incessantly
and always has something "deep" to say, Steve
Parlavecchjo as Eric, the bass player and tough guy who is
always the first to start a fight; and Lee Holmes as Tony,
the self conscious band leader who writes songs about "the

Bandwagon is a solid story about a group of musicians try-

talent is her light, easy voice. She has
this impish sound that glides over the

Moore weaves her voice around the

For example, one definite highlight is
"Say It Like That A simple, sub-
dued guitar progression jn the back-
ground gives Moore just the right
forum in which to work her magic.
Another advantage for Moore is,
that her album is catching on slowly.
Instead of the meteoric rise experi-
enced by bands like Hootie and the
Blowfish, Moore's music and genre
are spreading slowly as her talent fil-
ters down from critics to radio. This is
allowing her to experience success

dav on Saturday in preparation for Syracuse on Oct.
.After losing to South Carolina 26-0, the open
week will allow ECU to reevaluate what went
wrong in the loss and give them a chance to polish
up their game before they head to the Carrier
Head Coach Steve Logan feels this team has to
get back into practice and work as a whole group.
He compared their feat to what they experienced
in spring practice.
"We need to continue to have basically spring

and get them to where they work as a unit Logan
The ECL" running game has been an area of con-
cern, gaining just 154 yards on the grounds for three
games. Last year Scott Harley averaged 158.6 yards
This season Harley has been hampered by a sore
ankle that was sprained in the West Virginia loss.
Logan said Harley will take these r r weeks to heal
up his ankle and hopefully get it back to 100 per-
cent before they head up to New York.
The young offensive lines' performance has
been significant because with just one returning
starter, they are essentially learning their assign-
ments as each game goes by.
Logan said in Saturday's loss the offensive may
have looked worse than they were because when
one person performs badly, it reflects on the whole
"Each play we would have an effort by four of
them, and then one young man would break down
and consequently it looked like we had a poor effort
all around Logan said.
But right now all Logan can do is coach their
mistakes and hopefully iron out all the kinks before
the start of the next game.
"It's just the nature of dealing with a bunch of
youngsters right now and we're going to have to grit
our teeth and hold on and we'll get it eventually

Europe's most intimidating player,
Nick Faldo, is coming off his worst

the removal of Miguel Angel Martin

Tuesday when he agreed to return as
a non-playing member.
So how could Europe possibly

the beauty of team play and the
unpredictable nature of match play in
Woosnam has never won a singles

and halving two. Yci he has four wins
and two halves in nine alternate-shot
matches and has won

Throw in the quirkiness of the
Valderrama course � which the
Europeans know much better than
the Americans � and the pro-
European gallery and this Ryder Cup

There is one other factor that

The East Carolinian
Hurricanes hand over 3-0 loss to slow-starting Red Wings
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) � After
four days of practice and individual
work, coach Paul Maurice expected
his Carolina Hurricanes to start slow
against the Detroit Red Wings.
He was right on the money.
Kris Draper scored 57 seconds into
the game on a breakaway and Chris
Osgood stopped 34 shots � including
18 in the third period � as the Red
Wings beat the Hurricanes 3-0 in an
exhibition game Tuesday night.
"We got out of the gate slow
Maurice said. "When you take four
days and do some teaching we're not
at game speed because you can't
teach at game speed, you've to slow it
down and walk through things
The pace picks up a bit now for
the Hurricanes, who play four games
in five days, including a rematch with
the Red Wings in Detroit tonight.
"After 10 minutes of the first peri-
od I actually was pleased with the
game Maurice said. "It's a horrible
thing to say when you lose that you
were pleased with the game, but from
what I was watching there was a lot of
things in the neutral zone that is
starting to get a little clearer in our

"I think he was the difference.
They had some good heat on us and
they pressured us pretty good, they
were forechecking and rolling around
pretty good. They just didn't get the
puck by us
Draper and Osgood were two of
just a handful of Detroit's top players
who made the trip, but the defending
Stanley Cup champions (3-2-0) were
still able to dominate the Hurricanes
(2-2-1) with their tough forechecking.
"I'm way ahead of where I'm usu-
ally at at this time Osgood said.
